Vernon twins continue to amaze RICHARD ROLKE

nergy immediately overwhelms a visiting reporter and photographer as they walk through the door and try to get their shoes off. “Guess what? I got a kitty,” says Tatiana. “I’m the funny one,” counters Krista as she sticks out her tongue. Heading into the living room, the guests are embraced by the six-year-olds. A finger is jabbed towards Power Rangers on the TV screen. “They are my best friends,” says Tatiana. Tatiana and Krista Hogan are pretty much like any other Grade 1 students. They are open and friendly and always moving. “They just keep us hopping,” said grandma Louise Mckay. But Tatiana — Felicia Hogan and Krista are set apart from other students at Okanagan Landing Elementary. They are conjoined at the head. “The kids there are wonderful and so accepting of them. They come up and give them hugs,” said mom Felicia Hogan. “They do look differently so we thought there would be bullying but there’s been none of that.” As the interview continues, the girls try to get in on the act, showing off their latest Power Rangers moves. There’s also a flurry of “Guess whats.” “You talk too much,” Felicia directs towards Tatiana and she cuddles with Shaylee, her four-year-old daughter. “This cutie right here is my baby sister,” says Tatiana with pride. Because of their unique situation, the girls go to Vancouver every three months for checkups. There have been seizures and in August, they developed type 1 diabetes. “It was very scary. The sugar was so high it wasn’t registering,” said Mckay. But the diabetes is now under control and the girls have even got used to poking their own fingers for blood. “You want the great big needle?” Tatiana asks the photographer.

“The things we watch them do is phenomenal.”

Felicia Hogan kisses her six-year-old daughters Tatiana and Krista, conjoined twins, who continue to amaze their family with their growth, advancements and smile-provoking personalities. Visit www.vernonmorningstar.com for a video featuring the twins. The girls’ constantly amaze loved ones and specialists. “The things we watch them do is phenomenal. They share their sight and thoughts,” said Felicia.

“They get up and one will grab a cup and hand it to their sister and no words were ever said. For us it’s an every day thing.” Being physically connected doesn’t slow

them down. They run, kick and climb on to couches. The only obstacle is stairs. “Just to balance to go down is scary. You’re just cringing,” said Felicia just minutes after a baby gate was latched at the top of the stairs. The extended family of 14 is currently confined to two units of a four-plex and a new home would provide the girls with a little more space for their boundless energy. Constantly shifting between rental suites has also possibly put stress on their medical condition. “They get used to a home and then they have to leave it,” said Mckay. Because of financial constraints, funds to purchase a home are being raised at gofundme.com. Felicia admits some people may question the decision to ask the community for help for a home. “We think of our children before anything else and their health care. Every bit of money goes into all of the kids,” said Felicia, who is also mother of 10-year-old Rosa and eight-year-old Christopher. Even with a government subsidy, the constant trips to Vancouver are costly. A family-run delivery business hasn’t taken off as expected. “We can’t keep up with that because we’re away a lot,” said Mckay. A reality TV series is being pitched as a way of providing the children with the resources they need, but there are limits to what the family will do. “We’ve had offers but they want to do their own thing. We want it to be educational and actual real life,” said Mckay. “We want to show our family as it is and not something that’s made up.” But despite the financial uncertainty, the primary focus is Tatiana and Krista. Shortly after they were born, it was suggested they would never walk, talk or be able to adapt to their surroundings. Everyone has been proven wrong. “All bets are off. The girls could live to be whatever age and do whatever,” said Mckay. The reporter’s questions have come to an end, but a departure isn’t coming any time soon. Krista and Tatiana have wrapped themselves around the photographer and they aren’t letting go. “We’re going to keep her,” says Tatiana.

RCMP officers make arrest in murder case

two accused, and said the incident was not a random attack. Police did not say which of the accused was arrested in Vernon. The now 20-year-old man and 21-year-old woman, both from Salmon Arm, have been charged with first degree murder but can’t be named as they were young persons as defined by the Youth Criminal Justice Act at the time of the offence. “Each of our investigators believes that murder victims deserve to have their case solved, no matter how long the file takes,” said Shinkaruk. “These charges illustrate their dedication and hopefully will help Tyler’s friends and family.” The investigation remains active and additional charges are possible. The two accused were slated to appear in Salmon Arm court Tuesday.

Two people have been arrested almost four years after a Shuswap murder. RCMP investigators arrested a man and a woman in connection with the 2008 murder of Tyler Myers, 22, whose body was found in the yard of Salmon Arm’s Bastion Elementary School on Nov. 21, 2008, dead from a gunshot wound. Two individuals were arrested in Vernon and Salmon Arm Monday. “Investigators from the RCMP unsolved homicide unit have identified and arrested a man and woman that we believe are responsible for Tyler Myers’ murder,” said Insp. Gary Shinkaruk, with B.C. RCMP’s major crime unit. Because the matter is now before the courts, police are saying very little about the investigation. However, RCMP confirm that Myers knew the

Byron Bolton, chief executive officer, says the switch from Harbercraft to the KingFisher brand positions the Vernon company for growth.

New name for company A Vernon company has gone through a major rebranding. Harbercraft, which manufactures boats, will now be known as KingFisher. “It’s a natural fit for our brands in North American and Europe to navigate under the same global KingFisher nameplate, delivering the same unique customer experience - our famous responsive ride combined with impressive built-in fishability and the toughness of a tough heavy-gauge aluminum hull,” said Byron Bolton, CEO. The Harbercraft brand has been a fixture in the marketplace for the past 53 years while KingFisher was currently used for its Offshore and MultiSpecies lines. The decision was made to go with the Kingfisher name after extensive consultations with the company’s dealer network. “Our growth strategy includes working con-

stantly closer with the dealer network so that together we can raise the KingFisher consumer experience ever higher,” said Andrew Klopak, sales group president. “With the investments we made in product development, bringing manufacturing under one roof, and successfully entering the multi-species boat market, we are well positioned to bring our brand to another level.” The KingFisher brand represents the WestWinn Group, a privately held company focused on the design, development, manufacturing, distribution and marketing of heavy-gauge aluminum recreational fishing, sport and commercial boats. Its portfolio includes outboard-powered lake sport models, shallow and extreme river jet models, multi-species fishing specific models and offshore cabin-style models. KingFisher products are distributed across Canada, the U.S. and Russia.

Lumby neighbourhoods could be evolving. Council gave two readings Monday to a

bylaw that would permit secondary suites and backyard chickens. “I am interested to hear if people are in opposition or not,” said Coun. Jo Anne Fisher.

The Corporation of the

City of Vernon

Notice of Public Hearing Notice is hereby given that City Council will hold a Public Hearing to hear representations of interested persons or persons who deem their interest in property affected by the below-mentioned bylaw at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 13, 2012, in the Council Chamber, City Hall, 3400 30th Street, Vernon, B.C.: BYLAW #5380 (ZON00201) Location:

7000 Cummins Road (see map at right)

Legal Description: Portion of Lot 2, Plan KAP58651, DL 62, ODYD Applicant:

City of Vernon

Present Zoning:

P1 – Parks and Open Space

Proposed Zoning:

R5 – Four Plex Housing Residential

Purpose:

To allow the City to sell a portion of the property for future residential development.

Enquiries relative to the above proposed bylaw should be directed to the Planning Department, located at 3001 - 32 Avenue, Vernon, B.C. or by calling 250-550-3634. Copies of the bylaw and relevant background documents are available for inspection during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.), Monday to Friday inclusive (excluding Statutory Holidays) from November 5 to November 13, 2012. Any correspondence relating to this application can be delivered to the Corporate Officer, City of Vernon, 3400 - 30th Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 5E6 or by sending an email to phearings@vernon.ca. All correspondence and petitions received between November 4, 2012 (the date of notification) and 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 shall be copied and circulated to the members of City Council for consideration before the Public Hearing. Any submissions received after 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 will not be accepted. Correspondence and emails must include your name and civic address. You may present your verbal submissions and speaking notes at the Public Hearing. If you are unable to attend, you may appoint an agent to act on your behalf. NO REPRESENTATION WILL BE RECEIVED BY COUNCIL AFTER THE CONCLUSION OF THE PUBLIC HEARING.

City Services have moved to the old Library Building The following City of Vernon departments have moved to the old library building: ✔ Building and Inspections ✔ Bylaws ✔ Economic Development ✔ Emergency Services ✔ Engineering Services ✔ Information Services ✔ Planning ✔ Tourism All departments are open for business from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. The building is now called the Community Services Building (CSB). The address is 3001 – 32 Avenue. If you have any questions, please call the CSB reception line at 250-550-3634. 3400 - 30 Street, Vernon, BC • 250-545-1361 • e-mail: admin@vernon.ca

The proposed bylaw identifies secondary suites as a permitted use within single-family dwellings on rural and residential zones. “Hopefully it will provide more affordable housing and make it easier for people to afford mortgages,” said Coun. Lori Mindnich. Mindnich says the current cost of housing — renting and purchasing — may be restricting some people from staying in Lumby or moving to the community. “The cost of housing is an issue everywhere.” Mindnich admits, though, that the presence of suites may cause concerns for existing neighbours and issues such as parking are addressed in the bylaw.

“We have been waiting for a hen bylaw.” — Jo Anne Fisher

The document would also permit laying hens on any lot that contains a single-family dwelling or manufactured home and is zoned rural or residential (except the residential manufactured home park zone). “We’ve been waiting for an urban hen bylaw,” said Fisher. “There have been requests from residents for urban hens.” The primary thrust behind urban hens is to promote food safety

and sustainability. “We have people who are into organic gardening and growing their own food,” said Fisher. Roosters would not be allowed as a way of reducing noise. Other aspects of the proposed bylaw deal with steel cargo containers and on-street parking for home-based businesses. The bylaw must go to a public hearing before members of council can consider adoption.

Speeding motorists drive Enderby’s concerns richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Enderby officials are continuing to face challenges with speeding motorists. On Monday, resident Doug Grant asked city council to take action on Salmon Arm Drive, near M.V. Beattie Elementary School. “He is concerned about speeding vehicles in the school zone,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. “He has clocked vehicles going 80 kilometres an hour in the zone.” Grant has suggested speed bumps be installed and the speed zone permanently be 30 kilometres an hour, even when school is not in session. “Something definitely needs to be done before there is a serious accident in this area,” said Grant in a letter. Council has instruct-

“I don’t know if speed bumps are the solution.” — Howie Cyr

ed staff to consider all options for slowing vehicles down. “I don’t know if speed bumps are the solution,” said Cyr. “But we want to resolve the situation because he has a valid concern. Eighty kilometres an hour is ridiculous.” Cyr believes more police enforcement could help. “In a perfect world, we would have someone working radar there every morning but that’s not the reality we live in (because of limited police resources),” he said.

The city recently took steps to address speeding and improve traffic flow in other neighbourhoods near M.V. Beattie. The intersection of Stanley Avenue and Sicamous Street has been changed from a two-way to a four-way stop. At Regent Avenue and Sicamous Street, the two-way stop has switched to an east-west pattern from a northsouth design. All of the adjustments tie in with a new four-way stop on Knight Street at M.V. Beattie Elementary School.

New tourism strategy unveiled for region through a partnership After two years approach. “We are known too of intensive discussions and research, the much as a sun and beaches desThompsont i n a t i o n ,” Okanagan said Glenn To u r i s m Mand z iu k , Association chief execuhas launched a tive officer. 10-year region“We want al tourism to create strategy. exceptional The regional initiative, Glenn Mandziuk experiences that will Embracing draw visitors Our Potential, shares the vision of cre- here every month of the ating visitor experiences year.” Morning Star Staff

After extended periods of consultation and feedback, formal endorsements have come from all leading tourism agencies representing 90 communities, the Canadian Tourism Commission, Tourism BC, Aboriginal Tourism British Columbia, go2 and the Okanagan Valley Economic Development Society. Mandziuk believes tourist organizations are taking to heart new ideas that show

co-operation is essential for the region and individual businesses to succeed. “After a visitor checks into their hotel they want to find out what they can do over the next few days or weeks that will create great memories. They need the hotel to partner with others to create that great, authentic experience,” he said. Tourism is a key industry generating revenues of $1.7 billion

for the region. However, the association says, it remains highly seasonal – a key challenge that the strategy has sought to

address. “Ten years from now, the ThompsonOkanagan will be seen as a year-round destination with a unique

image,” said Mandziuk. “People will want to come here because they’ll see it as authentic and there will be no place quite like it.” Family Owned & Operated Offers valid ‘til November 13, 2012

Renee Nyberg, director of primary care services in the North Okanagan, welcomes visitors to the Vernon Downtown Primary Care Clinic’s fifth anniversary celebration Monday at the clinic, located on 29th Avenue in the First Nations Friendship Centre.

Clinic marks anniversary Morning Star Staff

It opened Nov. 5, 2007 to provide a health option to a clientele – many with mental health and substance abuse issues – who may not otherwise access health care. On Monday, the Vernon Downtown Primary Care Clinic on 29th Avenue celebrated its fifth anniversary knowing it’s been successful in providing service for the community’s marginalized population. Since its opening five years ago, the clinic has seen thousands of patients, doubled the number of annual visits and provided an alternative for individuals who otherwise sought care in the emergency department at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. “We’ve seen incredible success at the clinic,” said Renee Nyberg, co-ordinator of primary care services. “Last year, we had nearly 4,000 visits to the clinic, and we know many of those people would have either wound up in the emergency department or simply not sought care at all if the clinic wasn’t here.”

The Downtown Primary Care Clinic is staffed by two nurse practitioners, a medical office assistant and site coordinator. Two physicians see clients three days a week. Statistics show that patients who previously frequented VJH’s emergency department more than 10 times a year have reduced their visits by as much as 40 per cent once they started using the downtown clinic. Located in the First Nations Friendship Centre, the clinic is open to anyone who requires care and operates weekdays. A satellite clinic is provided one day a week at the Okanagan Indian Band health centre. “Our partnership with the Okanagan Indian Band is working very well,” said Nyberg. “The nurse practitioners are developing positive relationships with the patients and providing care in a culturally appropriate manner.” Okanagan Indian Band elder and friendship centre program director Mollie Bono blessed the anniversary celebrations with a prayer in the Okanagan language.

Cut the rhetoric

he common theory is opposition parties are great for pointing fingers but not that hot when it comes to solid options. That certainly appeared to be the case when B.C.’s NDP fired off a press release slamming the Liberal government for provincial food bank use increasing twice as fast as the national average. “The report shows that over the last four years an increasing number of people who rely on food banks are working Canadians,” said Carole James, social development critic, in the release. “This is not a simple issue that can be fixed with band aid solutions. British Columbians deserve solutions to the problems they face today, and the Liberal government has refused to take the problem seriously.” Now, there is no quesRichard Rolke tion that financial conditions are extremely difficult for many people, including here in the North Okanagan. Food Bank Canada’s 2012 hunger report indicates that food bank use in B.C. increased by 6.6 per cent and one in 10 people using a food bank between 2011 and 2012 was employed. The provincial Liberals and federal Conservatives have nothing to brag about. Despite all of the talk about economic recovery and job creation, people continue to struggle. Decent paying jobs are hard to find and the cost of housing, food and utilities continues to skyrocket. A single-person in B.C. receives a disability benefit of $906 a month. That is almost $500 below what is required to cover basic essentials. So James is correct when she says, “These

recent numbers are unsettling and unfortunately show that life is getting harder for many people in our province.” However, while the NDP press release was heavy on criticizing the Liberals, it was completely devoid of any solutions. In fact, the only reference to what an NDP government may do to reduce food bank use was, “Adrian Dix and B.C.’s New Democrats are committed to implementing a provincewide poverty reduction strategy that sets out clear targets and timelines to tackle growing inequality.” Great, but what exactly does that mean? Will the minimum wage be increased? Will disability pensions be boosted? Will there be a focus on apprenticeship training? Is the NDP planning to force high-income earners to pay more taxes? The NDP may actually have a firm strategy in place, but it wasn’t mentioned in the press release nor was anything on the party website. James missed a significant opportunity to tell the public what her party would do differently to reduce the lineups at food banks and help families become more self-reliant. As we just saw with the U.S. presidential vote, negativity dominates the political landscape these days. In Canada, the federal Conservatives have staked out a reputation for undermining anyone who rises in opposition to them. But at a time when our neighbours are torn between putting food on the table and paying the rent, rhetoric and name-calling isn’t helpful. What they require are firm, concrete details. Many British Columbians remember the NDP’s reign during the 1990s and some will be reluctant to give them another chance if it’s not exactly clear what they plan to do. James and leader Adrian Dix have six months to clarify the situation.

On Sunday many of us will gather around cenotaphs and in city squares for solemn ceremonies paying tribute to Canada’s service men and women. We’ll hear words like sacrifice and honour, some of them uttered by politicians. But for some veterans they’ll ring hollow. In 2006, Parliament passed the New Veterans Charter that changed the way injured soldiers are compensated. Instead of a lifetime pension, indexed to inflation, veterans injured after that year, or who had their injury diagnosed since then, would get a lump sum settlement. But some veterans, say Canadian soldiers injured in Afghanistan, and those suffering the lingering mental and emotional effects of their tour, are getting substantially less support than they would have received with the former indexed pension. A study by Queen’s University last year concluded most disabled soldiers will receive only two-thirds the compensation under the New Veterans Charter than they would have received from the old Pension Act. Recently Canada’s auditorgeneral criticized the Canadian Forces and Veterans Affairs for their shoddy treatment of injured veterans, saying the system to get them help is “complex, lengthy and challenging to navigate.” Even in death, the indignities continue. A program that is supposed to contribute just over $3,600 to the funeral costs for destitute ex-soldiers has rejected more than two-thirds of funding requests since 2006. Even when approved, that money is still less than some social services departments will pay towards the burial of the homeless. It’s one thing for Canada’s politicians to honour our veterans. It’s another to treat them with honour. ‑ Burnaby NewsLeader

Councillors missing the mark

udos to Richard Rolke on his column A priority problem in the Oct. 24 issue. I think perhaps some of our councillors should visit the Bella Vista and Lakeview area and see what a problem deer can be. They are not pretty little Bambis but are actually quite aggressive. Most people in our area of Lakeview are walking with a walking stick, a ski pole, or even a golf club in their hands, especially if they are taking their dog for a walk. The deer are not afraid of humans and, not only will they not back away, but quite often start charging toward you. It is quite scary. They charge at dogs on a leash and even attacked one inside a fenced yard. Obviously, in our populated area, hunting of any kind is not allowed (although it would be nice if there could be a cull. There are way too many deer within city limits). grEat column I loudly applaud Jennifer Smith for writing the article "Finding hope" in the Oct. 12 issue, stressing hope available to cancer survivors. What an excellent, positive perspective. So well said and eloquently written! I have met numerous cancer survivors over the years and in my church congregation, there are presently four women who have battled cancer and are survivors, as well as several men in the same category. I have cut out the article and will personally give it to a friend of mine with a teenage child presently going through the early stages of the survival battle...one of the brave "soldiers." If I do have one slight constructive criticism regarding this article, and in keeping with my faith and calling, I believe there is an added resource available for many survivors to draw from. That resource is having faith in a higher power and the strength, comfort and confidence that that faith provides. For me and the women in my congregation, that faith is in the God who knows all about us and our individual situation and is able

At least the farmers and orchardists can address their deer problem and they should be allowed to hunt on their own land. If you see your livelihood destroyed by wildlife, you should be able to protect it.

to bring healing, whether physical, spiritual, emotional and mental. This assurance brings with it peace, strength, joy and most of all hope. I have witnessed these survivors mature in their faith in God and in their perspective on life and have seen them achieve personal triumph, as well as being an inspiration to many. Again, thank you for an article so well written and giving hope to many, survivors and supporters alike. ruth Brown succEssful day Sept. 9 was International FASD Day with the B.C. government declaring September, FASD Prevention and Support Month. According to Health Canada, 9.1 per 1,000 children per year /are born with some form of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, which equates to more than 3,500 babies inflicted with lifelong developmental challenges. FASD describes a range of disabilities that result from prenatal exposure to alcohol during pregnancy. It is often an invisible disorder and is the leading known cause of a preventable developmental disability among Canadians. It is also far from discerning as it

The other issue, that of banning bear spray, is even more ludicrous. Coun. Juliette Cunningham was quoted as saying that it should be banned because it can be used for criminal acts.

affects all socio/economic and cultural backgrounds. The Vernon FASD Network Committee, which is comprised of professionals, health care providers, community residents and family members who are affected by or work directly with persons living with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder observed Sept. 9 by holding a community event to raise FASD awareness. The event was held in Polson Park featuring an opening prayer led by a local elder, opening remarks by Mayor Rob Sawatzky and included several extremely talented local musicians and guest speakers. For the past 10 years, community participation and interest has continued to grow, as does FASD awareness. However, not so much as to eliminate the shame, blame and stigmatism of the issues and challenges of alcohol use. FASD is not just a health issue. It is a community issue and has long term societal and economic implications. As a resident, you can support this community issue by learning about FASD, supporting where possible and directing women and families to the various resources available both in the community and online.

How about knives, axes, hatchets, or even a ballpoint pen, all of which can be used to hurt, maim, and yes, even kill people? Someone planning a “criminal act” will not be deterred by a bylaw. If you can only use bear spray on trails, just how exactly are you to get it there? What about the bears which also happen to roam our area? So far, no one has been attacked, as far as I’m aware, but how threatened would you feel if you see a 350-pound bear peering in your patio door? As Mr. Rolke stated, we already have provincial regulations and laws in place to cover hunters and the Right to Farm legislation, which allows hunting on farm land. I suggest our councillors concentrate on issues that actually are within their jurisdiction and stop wasting their time (and our money) on issues that are covered by provincial and federal legislation. Eva Pope

Let’s make sure China’s massive companies can’t buy up Canadian resource companies.

Mad Child comes out of the dark Renowned MC is in Vernon Saturday to perform from his new album, Dope Sick Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

It’s been a week since Halloween, but Shane Bunting still wears his skeletal face as a sign of where he’s been. The machine gun-fast MC from B.C. hip hop group Swollen Members, better known as Mad Child, shares every skeleton in his closet on his new solo album, Dope Sick. It’s his first recording since he’s been well and truly sober. Mad Child’s comeback has a renewed positivity that has transferred into his music. And no the MC hasn’t gone soft. Just listen to Runaway off Dope Sick, with the refrain “You can run, but you can’t hide.” You can hear his pain and reckoning in all its brutal honesty. “Dope Sick reflects on who I am and the gamut of what I went though –– through the dark times and the glorious times. I’m just happy to be alive and have beautiful people in my life,” said the MC who is in Vernon Saturday to headline a show at Monashee’s Bar and Grill. “I wrote most of the album during my darkest period, a reclusive time when I was depressed. It was therapeutic.” Mad Child’s story of those dark times actually takes place in the Okanagan, and appeared more in the news pages than those touting his talents as a word artist. Hooked on prescription painkillers Oxycontin and Percocet, Mad Child, now 37, almost slipped into the oblivion of drug addiction while holed up in a Kelowna mansion. Reports of him being affiliated with the Hells Angels in the past also didn’t help, and the repercussions still has him banned from entering the U.S. (True to form, Mad Child turned that experience into a 2011 EP entitled Banned from America.) “I’m no longer angry about the situation (of being banned). I made my own bed and I have to sleep in it,” he said. “It was up to me to change the bed and my life, and it was my decision not to be that person anymore.” Mad Child ended up moving from the Okanagan to get a fresh start. “I couldn’t see it any other way,” he said, about his turning point to recovery. “I remember actually driving to Vernon from

Kelowna, my lips were numb and purple. I knew at that moment that I had to quit and change my life. I probably would have died. I was scared at first. When you do opiates and you are not getting high anymore, if you go off, you are going to get sick.” Mad Child credits both his birth family and his hip hop family for seeing him through his darkest moments. “I went to my family and we picked a date (when he would go off the drugs). I reminded myself I was living in a trap. I had my mom and my dad by my side. I ended up in hospital the first night. It was 11 days of torture. It was worth it to become myself again, and then

speak against what is an epidemic. “These prescriptions still get out. I don’t think the general public knows what a problem it is. I am living proof.” Mad Child also gives props to his bandmates from Swollen Members for sticking with him through thick and thin. The band’s latest studio album, Dagger Mouth, continues to build momentum a year after its release, winning in the Rap/ Hip-Hop Recording of the Year category at this year’s Western Canadian Music Awards, and receiving a Juno nomination. Mad Child is currently writing new material with Prevail and Rob the Viking for

Swollen Members’ upcoming studio album titled Beautiful Death Machine, expected to be released in early 2013. “Hip hop saved my life twice. For four years I put my life on hold, then I put their lives on hold as my head was scattered and I needed to get my grounding,” said Mad Child. “All the positive people I’ve met in my life has always been through hip hop.” And the positivity continues as Mad Child embarks on his Dope Sick tour. Having just completed a sold-out Canadian tour with Kansas City rap mogul Tech N9ne, Mad Child is being accompanied on his first solo tour with Shadyville DJ Dow Jones and Vancouver hip hop act Ghost. “This keeps me going,” he said. “Without preaching, I’m trying to lead by example. My story is hopefully helping people with their issues who are listening to my music.” In related news, a local MC with a new album out is also opening for Mad Child at his Monashee’s gig. Immaculate (real name Julian Wolansky) has just put out a new EP entitled Here and After, and is in the works of completing an 11-song concept album with fellow MC Memo, which will exclusively feature music/beats from Finland’s Life and Death Productions. “It should be available early in the new year,” said Wolansky. Besides his opening gig for Mad Child, Immaculate will also be performing at a fundraiser at Sneakers Pub in Vernon on Nov. 16, a show in Salmon Arm Nov. 23, Penticton on the 24th, and he’ll be opening for hip hop/Pimp My Ride star Xzibit in Kamloops Nov. 28. Here and After is now available on iTunes or visit www.immaculatemusic.net for more info. Mad Child brings his Dope Sick tour to Vernon for a 19-plus event at Monashee’s Bar and Grill on Saturday. Regular tickets are $15, and VIP tickets are $30, includes a meet ‘n greet with Mad Child one hour prior to the show plus an autographed Dope Sick CD. All tickets are available at Monashee’s.

In this highly graphic presentation, one of Canada’s most respected policy experts will demonstrate what is happening to snowpack, snow cover and glacial ice in the Mountain West and what changes in upland hydrology may mean in terms of downstream water supply and quality in the future.

As newcomers discovered the area, they began to replace the traditional means of earning a living (mining, forestry, etc.) with jobs in tourism, at

think men are struggling with what it means to be a man. There are new criteria, changing daily, and men are slow to keep up. We seem to be confused, perpetually, at what our role is now, how to cope with it, and how to feel a sense of importance or relevance nowadays.” Vigna will be at Vertigo Voices with his wife, Nancy Lee, author of award-winning collection, Dead Girls. The two will give short readings and the focus of the evening will be providing readers and writers the chance to ask questions and be part of a discussion about the writing process.

Mapping out a bargain

Katherine MortiMer Morning Star Staff

From a pair of leather boots to a warm winter coat, Vernon’s downtown thrift stores are home to great style at bargain prices, all while giving back to the community. And now, bargain-hunters have an easier way of finding their way from one shop to the next, thanks to new maps that list six downtown thrift shops, each with the address, phone number and hours of operation, as well as a description of where the money goes. At the Mission Loonie Bin Thrift Store, manager Bobbe MacKenzie said she came up with the idea while helping out at a friend’s downtown antique store, which carried a map of Vernon antique shops. “I said, we need to do this for the thrift stores, so I got a hold of the others downtown, ran it past my board and got the maps printed up,” said MacKenzie. “Laurie Anne at the Electric Paper Company did all of this for us, using a Downtown Vernon Association map for the layout and design.” She said the stores all embrace the motto listed at the top of the map, “People helping people in the community.” The maps are available at each of the six thrift stores listed: Venture Treasures, Vernon Pro Life Thrift Store Salvation Army Sal-Mart, Georgette Shop, Mission Boutique and the Loonie Bin.

For MacKenzie, working in the nonprofit sector has given her the chance to use her years of retail experience, gleaned from the family business, MacKenzie’s Boys and Men’s Wear, a downtown Vernon institution for many years. “I wasn’t going to do this, but Bev Henke (Upper Room Mission manager) asked me and I thought about it and it was as though a little voice in my head said to me, ‘I didn’t put you in retail for 50 years for nothing,’ so here I am, and I absolutely love it. “I’m so lucky to be doing this because I have something to get up and go to — there is no reason for any of us to be bored. We have volunteers with a variety of disabilities, there is something for everyone to do.” MacKenzie said all of the shops have loyal customers who return regularly to peruse the racks of clothing, pick up a book to read or perhaps stock up their kitchen cupboard with some gently used dishes. “People come in and ask, ‘are there any other thrift stores around here?’ so the map seemed like a great way to guide them. It was a way of letting people know we are non-profit and that all of the profits stay in the community. “The whole idea of these shops is that they are non-profit and run by volunteers, and all of us need volunteers, support and donations.”

Soup’s on for 15 years of good taste

his weekend will mark 15 years that I’ve been writing this column and, as is my habit, I always offer soup recipes to mark the occasion (they never make me a cake, after all). I love making soups from scratch. There is just something wonderful about the flavours, the lack of artificial additives and, I like to think, the love stirred into mine, that bring smiles to all who enjoy a steaming bowl. Today’s recipes are two that you may like to try. Chicken soup has long been fabled to have healing properties and today science now agrees. The second recipe is a quick, tasty, and super easy vegetarian tortilla soup. Perfect for lunch, add a small salad and some corn bread and call it dinner!

Lemon Chicken and Spinach Noodle Soup 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 onion, diced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 carrot, diced 1 stalk celery, diced 1 sweet red pepper, diced 1 tsp. ground cumin 1/4 tsp. pepper 8 cups home made chicken stock* 4 cups packed leaves of fresh spinach, trimmed and chopped 2 cups cooked small pasta (such as stars or small shells), 1 cup uncooked

2 cups diced cooked chicken 2 tsp. grated lemon rind 1/3 cup lemon juice In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, carrot, celery, red pepper, cumin and pepper, stirring often, until softened, about 8 minutes. Pour in stock and bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in spinach, pasta, chicken, lemon rind and lemon juice; simmer for 5 minutes. Note: To freeze some of this hearty soup for up to one month, omit spinach and pasta, then add them when reheating. *If you don’t have homemade chicken stock, use 6 cups sodium-reduced chicken stock plus 2 cups water. — Recipe from Canadian Living 1997.

Free lecture geared to aboriginal women Morning Star Staff

Non-discriminatory health care for urban aboriginal women is the focus of a free lecture Thursday at UBC Okanagan. The public is welcome to this free panel presentation led by Okanagan-based indigenous researchers, who will share a local communitybased, indigenous-led study that explored historical, socioeconomic, and political contexts of urban aboriginal women’s healthcare experiences while navigating the borderlands of academic and indigenous worldviews. Recommendations for non-racist, non-discriminatory, culturally safe healthcare delivery will be offered. The free public talk addressing non-racist, cul-

turally safe health care delivery will be led by Donna Kurtz, associate professor, School of Nursing, UBC’s Okanagan campus; Jessie C. Nyberg, RN, BSN, Stswécemc/Xgat’tem Nation, Vernon; Diana Moar BSW, (Saulteaux) Berens River First Nation, Vernon; and Chawow EagleFeather, (Saulteaux) Berens River First Nation, Vernon. The presentation takes place Thursday from noon to 1 p.m. in room UNC 334, University Centre, UBC Okanagan, 3272 University Way, Kelowna. The event is sponsored by the Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention. To attend in person, or via webinar or teleconference, please RSVP to http://improvinghealthcare.eventbrite.ca.

Stigma of dementia is another barrier Morning Star Staff

Vernon families living with the impact of dementia are also coping with stigma, according to a new study. Nearly three-quarters of people with dementia, and 64 per cent of family caregivers, believe there are negative associations for those diagnosed with dementia, says Alzheimer’s Disease International. Another alarming statistic revealed in the ADI report: 40 per cent of people with dementia say they have been avoided or treated differently. The report puts a spotlight on stigma as a real issue that impacts individuals and families who are living with Alzheimer’s disease, says Michelle Hallgren, the local support and education coordinator for Vernon and the North Central Okanagan for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. “We want residents to know that there is hope and there are ways for overcoming stigma so that we can all better support families on the dementia journey and work with decision-makers to ensure that the rights of people living with dementia and their family caregivers are recognized,” she said. A free local support and information group serves as a forum for sharing practical tips and strategies for coping with the disease. It helps create support and friendship with others whose lives are affected by dementia.

Feature event: vernon museum hosts chris czajkowski vernon nov. 8

B

estselling author Chris Czajkowski returns with more revelations of life in the far reaches of the Chilcotin. She purchases a derelict homestead with rough road access at Ginty Creek. She tracks down a pile of Ginty Paul’s letters and documents. These, combined with many fond, bitter and bizarre anecdotes gleaned from interviews with area residents, are all woven into her new book Ginty’s Ghost: a Wilderness Dwellers Dream. Ginty Paul was the eccentric recluse who had previously owned the property. Some locals remember her affectionately, while others feared her volatile temper or refused to step into her house for fear of being served “chicken poop tea.” She had an open door policy to all of her animals: the chickens would sleep with her and the bedroom doubled as a maternity ward for dogs, cats, goats and sheep. The Friends of the Vernon Museum will host Czajkowski in Vernon on Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Schubert Centre, 3505-30th Ave. Admission is $5. Join us to hear about her new home, adventures and book along with fabulous photos.

Township closes road

Taking Shape

RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

Lisa VanderVeLde/Morning star

Construction crews continue work on Monashee Mews, a 46-bed seniors residential care facility on Norris Avenue in Lumby.

The Township of Spallumcheen has voted to close a portion of a road due to safety concerns. The area of concern is on Ford Road near Hitt’s gravel pit. “We received a complaint from a concerned citizen that the road didn’t look safe, that the down slope into the gravel pit looked straight up-and-down,” said Spallumcheen public works manager Ed Forslund. “I had a geotech come in and do an analysis and he wasn’t happy with the slopes so council voted to close a portion of the road.” The move comes under a township bylaw that gives the public works manager the authority to close, restrict or divert traffic from a section of road deemed unsafe or unsuitable for traffic. The closure is in effect until further

notice, and Forslund believes the move will have little impact on the people that live in the area. “There are only four residents on the west side of the road and they can access their properties from Knob Hill Road,” he said.

Sanchez super for Marauders Magnums bounce Bears for playoff berth Morning Star Staff

Sebastian Sanchez was a force with both of his legs for the Vernon Marauders Junior Bantam football team Sunday. Known for his prowess in booting converts, Sanchez was 4-for-5 on extra point attempts, recorded nine tackles on defence and added a 45-yard punt return for a touchdown to lead the Marauders to a 38-0 Southern Interior Junior Bantam Football Conference quarterfinal win over the Kamloops Broncos at Grahame Park. The third-place Marauders go into a conference semifinal Sunday at the CNC Turf Field in Kelowna at noon against the second-place West Kelowna Sundevils who, along with the regular-season champion Kelowna Mission Lions, received a firstround bye. “The Marauder defence overwhelmed the Broncos, holding their best drive of the game to only six yards,” said Vernon head coach Ron Kirschner. “But this win was a real team effort.” Also strong on the Marauders’ D was Miles Forrest with six tackles, Zack Rogers and Josh Hyer each had four tackles and a quarterback sack, while Reid (Pinball) Mackenzie also had four tackles. Kirschner also praised defensive tackle Dorian Weeks for playing his best game of the year with two tackles and pressure on the Broncos quarterback on every play. The Vernon offence was led by Tyler (Ducky) Sova, who had two rushing touchdowns – one on a 52-yard tackle-busting romp down the sideline – and threw a 31-yard TD pass to Morgan Nichols. Nichols also rushed for a 21-yard major, thanks in part to the solid blocking of line-

men Jackson Ponipal, Kaiden Parton, Tyler Riva and Landon Fitt. Kirschner applauded the special teams contributions of Tyler Braun, Isaac Olsen and Koalden Oakden. The Salmon Arm Broncos meet the Mission Lions in the other semifinal. On the plus side, the Vernon Magnums enter the B.C. Midget championship playoffs on a winning note. On the down side, they go into the post-season without one of their quarterbacks. Bill (Lumpy) Tarr’s Magnums crushed the North Langley Bears 40–0 in torrential rain at Langley Stadium Sunday to earn a playoff spot against the Chilliwack Giants. Vernon opened the game very aggressively on offence by NATALIA VIGNOLA/MORNING STAR scoring on their first two drives.

Vipers find swagger with nine-goal explosion Morning Star Staff

There is a slight sign of swagger creeping into the Vernon Vipers’ game. And they’ve certainly earned the right to feel good about themselves, stretching their winning streak to three games Saturday night by ambushing the Trail Smoke Eaters 9-2 before 990 fans at Cominco Arena. “We’ve got eight of our last 10 points so they’re feeling better,” said Viper head coach Jason Williamson. “They’re kids and this is great for their confidence.”

Things were going so well for the Vipers in Smelterville, Williamson even put bruisers Kevin Guiltinan and Geoff Crisfield on the powerplay points. The Vipers also received their first Gongshow BCHL Player of the Week with Adam Tambellini taking honours for pocketing 1+3 in Trail after scoring twice in Friday’s double OT win over the Nanaimo Clippers. The 6-foot-4, 180-pound forward leads Vernon in scoring with 22 points in 18 games. Jedd Soleway, who has been spoon feeding Tambellini some sick passes, scored twice

Captain Brett Corkey scored just 16 seconds in and added three assists from the back end, while Logan Mick and Mitch McAllister both recorded their first BCHL snipes and other singles came from Craig Martin, Michael Roberts and Pearce Eviston. Martin netted the goal of the night, blocking a shot, skating down his off wing, flipping the puck over a d-man’s stick and, in one motion, ripping his fifth of the season. Martin, a Trail product, played nine games for the Smokies last season.

U16 Legends collect crown

Vipers....

Continued from A27

Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan Legends grounded Kamloops Rattlers 10-2 Sunday to win the Interior Under 16 Field Lacrosse League final at MacDonald Park. The U16’s went all season undefeated, outscoring the competition 160-29. “We dominated everyone in the league” said Legends’ head coach Dave McWhirter. “We played three different players in net this season as our starter broke his thumb in the first game. Our defence was very strong which allowed our middies and attacks lots of time with the ball.” Kamloops grabbed an early 2-0 lead as the Legends had trouble catching and passing. However, they found their groove late in the first quarter, tying things up just before the break. The Legends will attend the provincials sometime in January, in Burnaby. On attack, Kyle Cuzzetto scored twice, while singles went to Brayden Hoggarth, Sam Hanley, Tyler Landry and Ryan Martin. Midfielders Marlon Forrest (2) and Carson Holt also found the net, while on big stick (defence), Chris Inscho bagged one goal. The North Okanagan U12’s lost to Penticton in the semifinals and Penticton went on to beat Kamloops in the final. In U14’s, the North Okanagan Legends lost 8-4 to Kelowna in the final.

The Kalamalka Lakers lost 4-0 to the Sa-Hali Sabres of Kamloops in the Okanagan Valley Senior AA Boys Soccer Championships consolation final Saturday at Marshall Field. Cari Dyck’s crew bowed 6-4 to the Summerland Rockets earlier Saturday, and went into the 3 versus 4 game battered and bruised. “By this point, we had a very beat-up team with very few subs,” said Dyck, assisted by Jobie Waughman. “The boys played so hard despite injuries and battled for the entire 90 minutes. I was so proud of the boys that they showed such character by never giving up the entire game. It was a great, successful season and with such a young team, I expect to be a strong presence next year.” The Okanagan Mission Huskies of Kelowna brushed off Summerland in the final. Both teams join the Sabres in the B.C.’s, Nov. 19-21, in Burnaby. Centre midfielder Lucas Ross scored twice in the Lakers’ loss to Summerland. Menno Burnett and striker Liam Ross added singles in support of Thomas Vandecromenaker. Kal opened the Valleys Friday with a 6-0 victory over the Westsyde Whundas of Kamloops before losing 3-1 to Okanagan Mission.

D-man Ryan Renz chipped in with a pair of helpers as the Vipers outshot the Smokies 47-43 with Danny Todoyschuk earning his first win in two starts in his second tour of duty in Vernon. “Danny was good,” said Williamson.”He made some big stops early and both their goals were in the last five seconds of a period so I kind of felt sorry for him. We were able to roll four lines most of the game.” Mitch Foyle scored for Trail with five seconds left in the second period with the Vipers up 7-0. Adam Wheeldon counted a powerplay goal with three seconds left in the game. Craig Martin Vipers’ rookie d-man Michael Statchuk took a vicious check from behind from Trail’s Luke Sandler midway through the second period, and did not practise Monday or Tuesday. He was scheduled to skate today and play Friday night here against the Smokies. It’s Parents Weekend for the Snakes, who improved to 6-7-0-5, tied with Trail for fourth spot in the Interior Division. Vernon has four games in hand on the Smokies. The Surrey Eagles (11-6-0-1) visit Wesbild Centre Saturday night. The Vipers will mark Movember with several give-a-ways and a postgame jersey auction. The Vipers are three points behind the West Kelowna Warriors, 2-0 losers to the Clippers Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, Viper veteran Aaron Hadley has been chosen captain for Team West in the World Junior A Hockey Challenge in Yarmouth, N.S. Hadley and Team West opened the tournament Tuesday by icing the Czech Republic 7-0. Alex Kerfoot of the Coquitlam Express had 2+2, while Wade Murphy of the Penticton Vees scored twice. Team West – with 15 BCHLers – plays Russia today. The Russians stopped the Czechs 6-1 and USA stormed Team East 9-1 in Monday action. In KIJHL action, the host Princeton Posse got two goals from Dakota Leppa in a 6-4 win over the North Okanagan Knights Saturday night. Mac Ferner (4th), Morgan Johnston (9th), Matty Saharchuk (9th) and Derek Andrews, shorthanded (4th) scored for the Knights, who fell to 13-4-0-1, tied for first overall with the Nelson Leafs. Vernon product Colton Thibault, who was recalled by the BCHL Warriors Friday and Sunday, earned two assists for the Knights. Princeton (10-6-0-1) outshot the Knights 49-34 with Jack Burgart taking the win. Dustin Nikkel suffered the loss. The Knights host the 5-13 Penticton Lakers tonight at Nor-Val Sports Centre. D-man Kenny Batke of the Vernon Midget Tier 1 Vipers was summoned by the Revelstoke Grizzlies in a 2-1 Sunday night win over the host Kamloops Storm.

Petite Rebels gain split Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Petite Rebels split a pair of league games last weekend, stopping the Kelowna Whites 5-1 before falling 9-6 to the Shuswap Whites. Abygayle Williamson scored twice Saturday at Priest Valley Arena, singles going to Alyssa Carter, Madison Fox and Georgia Lannon. Clancy Coulter had two assists. Liam Van Wyk earned the win. Fox led the Rebels with a hat trick Sunday at Jim Lind Arena in West Kelowna. Williamson (2), Lannon, Katie Simpson and Ashley Shwaluk completed the offence. The Tween B Vernon Renegades fell 5-2 to Kelowna Sunday. Goals came from Miranda Chapplle and Mason Christensen. Strong Renegades showings were turned in by Makayla Vanderzwan and Ellen Campbell. The Petite Vernon Voltage topped Kelowna 9-3 at home on Saturday. Kalen Webster, Mackenzie Munroe and Levi Knopf each netted a couple of goals, while Rylie Marchand, Giselle Torres and Kenzie Koshure supplied singles. Bryn Taylor-Hawes and Torres helped out with a few assists. Jaden Scott played outstanding in net. In Novice action, the Vernon Orcas collected a couple of wins, brushing back Kelowna Whites 8-6 Saturday. Paige Neufeld and Chayse Krause each pocketed a deuce, with Sierra Lochhead, Tori Christensen, Tye Krause and Daine Thoma providing singles. Brooklyn Young had an amazing debut in net. On Sunday, the Orcas grounded the Kelowna Reds 11-7 behind hat tricks from Tye Krause and Logan Thoma. Daine Thoma and Arianna Kositsin each added two goals, while Mackensie Gilman scored once.Kositsin also recorded two assists with others coming from Sierra Lochhead, Gilman and Logan Thoma. Brooklyn O’Hara and Amber Lowe added support with stellar play all around and Tori Christensen picked up the win. In U16 play, Team BC Century 21 Junior A team iced Kelowna Junior A’s 6-3 Saturday at PV Arena.

Kelowna took an early two-goal lead before Olivia Percy and Taylor Gray kicked their defence in high gear while Hannah Popilchak soon put Vernon on the board with a great goal, then smartly fed Bailey Williamson for the equalizer. Another Popilchak to Williamson snipe left Vernon leading at the break. Kelowna tied things up before Williamson netted her hat trick goal off a great pass from Percy. Sydney Harder cut through the seam on a power play to back hand a top shelf shot where mamma hides the Girl Guide cookies and Hannah Popilchak added an empty netter. Netminder Billy Cawthorne literally bent over backwards to make save after save for Vernon, while stingy defence from Kennedy Pope, Katelyn Paulin & Carly Alexander gave Kelowna little chance. In U14 action, Vernon’s Cornerstone Dental ambused Kelowna 6-1 in Tween A action Sunday morning at the Capital LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR News Centre. Kelowna earned a quick Emma Lochhead of the Vernon Voltage (right) heads for the net with Chelsea goal, but their lead didn’t last long at Alex Drury shelved two goals, the first from Cristofoli of the Kelowna Untouchables close behind in ringette action Saturday. Saylor Martian, and the next off a Kendra Belles fell 7-3 to Salmon Arm. Ostafie pass. Salmon Arm grabbed an early 5-1 lead with Shelby Fisher Saige Woodliffe then scored unassisted to send Vernon scoring unassisted for Vernon. Fisher, on a feed from Aryana into the half up 3-1.

Alyssa Racine, Evan Koshure and Maddy Percy. The U19’s tied the Kelowna Belle A’s 6-6 in their home Kendra Ostafie topped Vernon up with two goals, one from Alex Drury and the other from Shelby Connors, with opener Sunday at PV Arena.

Racine scored the final goal. In U19 action Saturday, the Jacura Trucking Vernon Kendra Racine scoring in front of a stellar Sarah Semph.

The Kelowna Christian Knights brushed back the Kalamalka Lakers 2-0 (25-7, 25-14) in Saturday’s final of the Fulton Maroons Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament. The VSS Panthers defeated South Kam Titans 2-0 (25-18, 25-18) in the consolation final. Fulton swept Sa-Hali 2-0 (26-24, 25-15) to finish fifth, while the Valleyview Vikings of Kamloops were seventh and Prince George placed eighth. “Overall, I was pleased with the performance of my team,” said Fulton head coach Sharon Shaigec. “We played well and beat the teams I knew we should take, almost knocked off VSS in pool play, struggled in our quarterfinal match

against Kal and then finished on a winning note against Sa-Hali.” Shaigec was thrilled to see super fans and retired officials/coaches Denis and Barb Murdoch at the gym. “Mr. and Mrs. Volleyball took in the high level of volleyball action throughout the tourney. They have yet to miss the Fulton Tournament.” The Okanagan Valley Championships go Nov. 16-17 at VSS. There is one berth to AAA provincial playdowns hosted by Crofton House and Little Flower Academy in Vancouver. Meanwhile, the Vernon Christian School Royals senior boys placed fourth in the nine-team Prince George Polars tournament. In Friday pool play, the Royals stopped

both the Kelly Road Roadrunners of Prince George and Mackenzie Sabres in straight sets with Jake Thiessen coming off the bench to serve four aces and supply four digs. On Saturday, the Royals swept Houston Christian Wildcats before falling in three sets to the D.P. Todd Trojans of Prince George. Libero Luke Wolgram provided solid passing in the loss. In the playoff round, the Royals used a strong outside attack from Sam Koch and brilliant blocking down the middle from both Adam Ensing and Travis Hoogland to stop the Polars 2-0 (25-18, 25-17). Vernon Christian then bowed 2-1 to the Caledonia Kermodes before falling 2-0 to the Trojans in the bronze-medal match.

Koch and Hoogland led the attack all weekend with 22 kills apiece. Setter Aaron Spence distributed the ball well, garnering praise from other coaches, and chipped in with four kills. Ryan Price paced the Royals in serve aces with five, and also had 12 digs. Hoogland also provided five solo blocks while Ensing supplied four. Zac Dubland resumed his strong performance from the right side with several block assists and five kills for the weekend. Reuben Smid and Sasha Skrinnikoff filled in well from the bench with fine blocking and hitting from both sides. “The team played well considering they had to play five matches on Saturday, three being in a row in the playoffs,” said Royals’ coach Chris Bannick. “The other teams from the other pool we faced were well rested, and fresh. Still, I am very proud of their performance this weekend.”

Lakers fall to Terrace Morning Star Staff

Terrace iced the Sladen Moore Lakers 5-1 Sunday in the finals of the Vernon Bantam Female A Hockey Tournament at Civic Arena. Terrace took the lead in the first and scored a second goal with eight minutes remaining in the second. The Lakers responded early in the third period when Samantha Head turned over a puck in the corner which she fed to Cailee Bauml. Bauml then threaded a perfect pass to a wide open Ripley Burd for a hard one-timer to the far side. Terrace held on as the Lakers pushed to get back in the game and Taylor Beck (game MVP) scored her second of the night to seal things. “Terrace lost in the provincial final last year so they are hungry to win it all this year,” said Laker head coach Keith Tucker. “They have a lot of second-year players on their team which gives them great depth. Our girls played fantastic this weekend and this tourney is a great measuring stick for us as we prepare to host provincials this year.” The Lakers won their first Saturday game 6-3 over the Victoria Stars. Taylor Vandale continued her hot streak, scoring twice on rebounds, while Jenna Fletcher, Andie Kaneda, Emily Clarke and Paige Chapdelaine all contributed singles. Maya Baker made 15 saves, while Hannah Swift and Chelsea McCaig were solid on defence. In the afternoon game, the Lakers clinched first in their pool by icing Abbotsford 5-4. Andie Kaneda fired a hat trick to pace the Lakers. Her last goal was a strong wrist shot to the far side after a great individual effort. Fletcher, with 1+2, and Olivia Comeau, with three assists, turned in strong showings. Hunter Joseph also scored in support of Bailey Berndt (27 saves). The Bantam Tier 1 Sun Valley Source for Sports Renegades iced the Kelowna Tier 2 Rockets 4-1 in league play Saturday at Rutland Arena. Vernon dominated the first period, outshooting Kelowna 17-6 and going up 2-0 on goals from Josh Decoffe (Jagger Williamson) and Eamonn Miller (Blaine Caton) until Kelowna connected on the power play. The Renegades found their groove again in the third with goals from Miller and Williamson (Michael Lenoury and Gage Kopp). The solid effort was led by grinders Reed Cashato and Bryce Pyle. Kieran Watts faced 15 shots for the win. The Pee Wee Tier 1 Watkin Motors Mustangs split a pair of road games with the Prince George Cougars, losing 8-0 in Saturday’s opener. With some stellar goaltending from Jordan Wilde, the Mustangs managed to shut out the Cougars 7-0 Sunday morning. Dawson Chase opened the scoring with a feed from the always crafty Joe Eggert. Coleton Bilodeau heaved a backhand from the slot over the tender’s pads, with assists coming off a strong cycle from Nick Cherkowski and Josh Bridge. Drayden Dougan’s wrist shot from the point put the Cougars up three with assists going to the relentless one, Caden Bracken, and Bilodeau. The Mustangs managed to kill more than four minutes of 5-on-3 with numerous fabulous saves provided by Wilde and diligent defensive work from Juli Gilowski and Keeghan McRae. The Mustangs added goals from Powell Connor, Chase and Eggert with assists going to Bilodeau, Burns (2), Bracken and Cherkowski. Bilodeau ended the scoring in the third after a lovely crosscrease feed from Cherkowski. Dylan Sedlacek threw a late thunderous hip check. The Midget Tier 1 Home Building Centre Vipers ambushed the Salmon Arm Midget Tier 2 Silvertips 9-1 in exhibition play. Wyatt Warnes and Riley Booth each scored twice, while Jacob Dolinar (1+4), Austin Garrington (1+2), Blaine Caton, Logan Geefs and Richard Meaney added singles. The Vipers open their eight-team tournament Friday night at 6:15 against Fort St. John (Civic). In Tier 2 Midget action, the Vernon Coca-Cola

Amy-Rae Fox (right) of the Sladen Moore Lakers goes for a loose puck against Anna Mollenhauer of the Victoria Royals Saturday at the Civic Arena. Vipers toppled the South Okanagan Hornets 3-1 Sunday afternoon at Wesbild Centre. Evan Campagnolo shut the door after allowing a first-period Buzz goal. He stopped a penalty shot early in the second period. Jeff Bochon scored for Vernon on the power play with assists from Graham Jones and Brandon Rysen. With only 16 seconds left in the second period, Connor Butte-Landsfried scored on the power play, assisted by Zach Manton and Jorden Dewing. Early in the third period, Bochon converted a pass from Carson Tucker. In Bantam Tier 3 action, the Vernon Auto Fix Vikings blew a 3-0 lead in falling 4-3 to the Kelowna Rockets Saturday night. Colton Skead, with a deuce, and a single from from call-up Seth Blundell, staked the Vikes to the lead. Assists went to Cody Bauml, Liam Henning, Stephane Richard and Austin Caldwell. In Sunday action, the Vikings bowed 3-0 to the North Kamloops Lions. The Vikings played a more physical game with d-man Logan Imrich, Riley Swiscoski, Jason Shaigec and Bauml setting the tone. Ethan Huizinga was strong in goal. The Pee Wee Tier 3 Nixon Wenger Rattlers split a pair of league games, stopping Merrtt Centennials 4-2 at home Saturday before losing 6-3 Sunday in Kamloops. Cole Johnson (2), Zach Agar, and Eric Noren handled the Rattlers’ offence Saturday. In Kamloops, Gavin Fleck, Noren and Lucas Halvorson had the Rattler snipes. The North Okanagan Pee Wee Tier 4 Knights lost 5-4 and 4-3 to the Clearwater Warriors in league games in Enderby. Jake Crandelmire scored unassisted halfway into the first period Saturday, while Wesley Graves followed up on a feed from Brett Zbytnuik and Dylan Huber. Bryan Brew from Michael Kormany and Wesley Graves, and Eli Dwyer unassisted, completed the North Okanagan offence. In Sunday’s tilt, Brew scored first for the Knights, with an assist from Brandon Matvenko. The Warriors equalized before Matthew Dolinar, assisted by Ryan Desilets, put the Knights ahead. Alex Gilowski scored on a feed from Matvenko midway through the third. The Vernon H&L Glass Wolfpack dropped their first regular-season Atom Development game, falling 5-4 to Kelowna #4 Sunday. Vernon scoring came from Trevor Kennedy, from Ben King and Logan Chapdelaine, Anne Cherkowski, from Jaxxon Collard, King from Chapdelaine, and an unassisted end to end rush by Tanner Brown. Tanner Witt was solid in goal.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder WEIRD BIDDING AND WEIRDER PLAY Steven Wright, the weird comedian, said, “Is it weird in here, or is it just me?� Is it weird in this deal, or is it just me? It isn’t just me -- this deal features some weird bidding and weird play. How do you think the auction should have gone? And once South is stuck in three no-trump, what should he do after West leads the spade jack to declarer’s king? In the given auction, West made a weak jump overcall, showing 5 to 10 high-card points and a sixcard suit that would usually be stronger than the one held. North made a negative double. This was not without

risk, but he had to do something with nine points. Then South, who was stuck for a useful forcing bid, shut his eyes and leapt to three no-trump. South might have opened two clubs. Presumably West would have overcalled two spades, North would have responded three hearts, South would have rebid four diamonds, North would have raised to five diamonds, and South would have guessed whether to pass or to raise. However, here South is in three no-trump. How can he make that? Even looking at all 52 cards, it is not obvious. Do you see the answer? South cannot play on diamonds, because West gets his long suit established first, taking four spades and

two diamonds. The solution is to play a heart to dummy’s ace and continue with the heart queen, discarding declarer’s remaining spade! If East plays a spade, South gets two spades, four hearts and three clubs. If the defenders abandon spades, declarer has time to set up the diamonds.

Bill also leaves sisters Ruth, Karoline, Elsie, Lilly, Gertrude, brothers Ernest and Norman, and many special extended family and friends. Bill was predeceased by daughter Debra in 1976, and sisters Hilda, Teresa and Sophie. Bill moved to Vernon in 1931. As a young man he ran a team of workhorses throughout the BX and Vernon area, at the same time helping to run the family farm. In his teens Bill started to work in a sawmill and soon found his true talent in life as a millwright and foreman. He built and ran several sawmills throughout the years in Merritt, Sugar Lake, Vernon, Salmon Arm and finally Enderby. Bill married Millie Kaminski in 1952 and together they raised their 3 children on a farm in the BX. Bill spent much of his spare time enjoying his children and grandchildren, the outdoors, camping, and walks through the forest. He will always be remembered as a hard-working man who got the job done. Bill’s family would like to extend sincere appreciation for the loving care provided by all the staff at Noric House and by Dr. Abri DeBeer. A celebration of life will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 5151 Alain Rd. on Fri., Nov. 9 at 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates your thoughts and prayers.

Be careful winter driving Morning Star Staff

This winter don’t get caught out on the road unprepared. Whether you use your vehicle for work or leisure, take steps to reduce your risk of a crash on winter roads. WorkSafeBC, BCAA Road Safety Foundation, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, B.C. Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association, and the other members of the Winter Driving Safety Alliance have a few tips: Don’t Know? Don’t Go. First, check your local traffic and weather report or visit DriveBC.ca before heading out. Avoid driving if the weather is bad, even an hour or two can make a big difference. If you can, wait until the weather improves. If you don’t have to go, then don’t drive. Install four matched winter tires. Winter tires provide better stopping power and traction in cold weather and snow. Check for wear before mounting and check tire pressure every few weeks.

Equip your vehicle with emergency gear in case you become stranded. Carry a windshield scraper and snow brush, extra windshield washer fluid, flares and matches or a lighter, tire chains and gloves, a first aid kit, a shovel and a traction mat, sand or cat litter, a flashlight and extra batteries, battery jumper cables, a spare tire, a wheel wrench and jack, and extra clothing and footwear. Slow down and drive for the conditions. The posted speed is the maximum speed under ideal conditions. In winter, it is safer to drive below the posted limit. In 2010, there were 44 fatalities where driving too fast for the conditions was a contributing factor (source: ICBC Quick Statistics April 2012). The risk of vehicle incident is higher during winter months. Whether driving for either pleasure or for work, and regardless of vehicle use, everyone is encouraged to drive safely. According to the BCAA Road Safety Foundation, the number of calls to BCAA for roadside assistance typically increases up to 25 per cent during the rainy, snowy winter months.. Problems with tires are common as motorists drive over more potholes which can create a bulge in a tire, break or bend wheel or suspension components and/or cause a flat to occur. A bulge in a tire is also a safety hazard that should be addressed immediately. Some of these situations can be avoided if drivers are prepared for driving in winter weather conditions. The Foundation also recommends carrying a winter roadside emergency kit in case you do find yourself stranded. If you have to drive, be smart. Check the conditions, make sure your vehicle is winterized, drive for the conditions and give yourself extra time, and carry an emergency survival kit. Download the following websites to your phone or bookmark them on your web browser and check them often. DriveBC.ca is a good source of current road and travel conditions. ShiftIntoWinter.ca has tips on how to prepare yourself and your vehicle, and how to drive safely on winter roads.

Q: A:

My furnace is close to 20 years old now. For planning purposes how much more life should I expect out of it, and what should I look for in a new one?

Life expectancy for furnaces really depends on how well it has been maintained. Like all mechanical equipment, furnaces require routine maintenance and the filter should be changed frequently to optimize air-flow through the system. A well maintained system will last 20+ years with very few repairs. However, even if your system has been well maintained and is operating fine, modern furnaces are so efficient now, that it may be worth upgrading your furnace if it’s older than 15 years. Gas furnaces today boast efficiencies as high as 98%. That means for every $1 spent on natural gas, only 2 cents worth is being wasted. Some older furnaces are wasting as much as 40 cents for every dollar spent on gas. Also, if you are thinking about upgrading your furnace, often people fail to ask about the electrical efficiency. Some furnaces today consume as little as 75 watts during operation, while older furnaces can be in the 200-300 watt range. Considering that your furnace does double duty by operating during the cooling season as well, the hours of electrical operation can really add up over the course of a year. So make sure to ask your heating contractor about electrical efficiency!

Q:

I’m occasionally out of town on business trips when I can’t keep up with my fitness schedule. Does that mean that I lose muscle tone during those times? It’s important for best health and fitness results to do strength training 2-3 times a week, and then to do other sorts of activities on the off days. When you do your strength training, you need to work out hard (lift heavy, in a safe fashion). After 5-6 weeks of hard workouts, you will find that one week off will oftentimes provide your body with a much needed break. And best of all, it takes about three weeks before you start losing muscle tone, so business trips can have minimal impact if you plan your fitness for maximum results. Check us out at our new Fitness Studio for more tips on reaching your fitness and wellness goals.

We Don’t Sell - We Help You Buy

Jim & Sharolie Osborne I’m going away for an extended period. What do I need to know about having my home looked after while I’m away? Insurance companies require that homes be checked regularly. Otherwise, your insurance coverage may be invalid. Check with your insurance broker to find out how often your home must be checked to ensure your coverage remains in force. This varies among companies - from weekly to every 3-4 days. In some cases, turning off the water will extend the time between mandatory checks. You can sometimes arrange for family & friends to look after your home, but insurance adjusters prefer regular documented checks made by a reputable professional home supervision company. Comfort Home Supervision Services will draw up a list with you of checks to be made in your home while you are away. We also document each visit with time-dated photographs of all key rooms. In the event of a disaster, these photographs are evidence of the condition of your home taken within days or even hours. We can also arrange other services such as snow removal & minor home repairs.

Q: A:

What are some simple ways I can stay healthy over the winter?

1) Take your fish oil: High in Omega-3 fatty acids, this will keep your immune system strong. 2) Take Vitamin D: Not only fantastic immune support, it also helps diminish the winter blues. 3) Remember to breathe and exercise: Keeping stress levels manageable is important to immune system health, as when your body is taxed by stress, your immune system is more susceptible to illness. 4) Get your zzzzz’s: Adequate sleep is important for health as it gives your body the proper replenishment it needs. Aim for 8 hours per night. 5) Wash your hands frequently: Bacteria and viruses are passed easily from (and to) our hands. 6) Get a Natural Flu Shot: This is an injectable combination of homeopathic remedies that are indicated for flu, which give your immune system a natural boost in preparation for encountering winter viruses. Please contact our clinic to book yours today!
