on different timelines.” Sawatzky isn’t sure what will occur if GVAC doesn’t support the sites proposed by the city. “The process will be more difficult reaching a successful conclusion,” he said. Greater Vernon Museum officials are disappointed with city council’s actions. “They say we can get a 30,000-squarefoot building on this site and I’m not sure how we will do it,” said Ian Hawes, museum president, of the requirement for exhibit space, storage and climate control. “No matter what we do with this site, we won’t have a class A facility. If it’s not a class A facility, why are we doing it?” Hawes is also frustrated council made a decision without input from his group.

“This community needs a vision. Where do we want to be 15, 20 or 30 years from now?” he said. VPAG already has plans for the flower shop site. “It’s in GVAC’s hands to decide where we go from here,” said Dauna Kennedy Grant, executive director. Kennedy Grant would like a spring referendum so a new gallery can be ready for a major print event in 2015. “There’s still a chance we can do that,” she said. It’s been suggested that an art gallery could cost $5 million whereas a stand-alone museum could be up to $10 million. No costs for expanding the present museum have been provided.

Police release robbery suspect photo ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP have released video surveillance photos of a robbery suspect in hopes the public can help identify him. The suspect entered Quality Greens in the 4800 block of Anderson Way Nov. 30 at closing time, 7 p.m., produced a bag on the counter and told the clerk to give him the cash. Police said he also opened his jacket and showed the clerk what appeared to be the handle of a gun. “The images are a bit grainy in showing the facial features but we’re hoping somebody knows something about the clothes he was wearing,” said RCMP spokes-

person Gord Molendyk. As the suspect fled, an employee of the store chased after him, caught him but was hit on the head by the suspect, who fled on foot northbound on Anderson Way. The employee suffered a minor injury. The suspect was described as a Caucasian man, mid-20s, clean-shaven, wearing a red or orange jacket with black sleeves and black on the shoulders, lighter blue jeans, black toque and gloves. Anybody with any information on the suspect can call the Vernon detachment at 250-5457171, Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477 or leave a tip on the local Crime Stoppers’ website,

www.nokscrimestoppers.com. The robbery was one of four attempted on the same night. There were robbery attempts made in Enderby, at Enderby Jewellers, and in Armstrong at the Anchor Inn Liquor Store. Police are still trying to see if those two robberies may be connected. “There are photos available from those robbery attempts but police do not wish to taint potential witnesses, so they are not being released,” said Molendyk. A lone man also tried to hold up the Pizza Factory on 43rd Avenue but was chased off by the knife-wielding owner of the store. RCMP PHOTO Molendyk said they had no Vernon RCMP have released an image of a man who is the suspect in an leads in that case. attempted robbery Nov. 30 at Quality Greens on Anderson Way.

Closing arguments given in fatal accident trial ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Chase Donaldson’s fate now rests with Supreme Court judge Frank Cole. Donaldson, 29, of Coldstream, is facing counts of dangerous driving causing death and failing to remain at the scene of an accident in connection with the death on April 30, 2010 of Kiera-Leigh Carlson, 22. Carlson was struck by a car driven by Donaldson as she walked to work along Aberdeen Road in Coldstream shortly before 9 p.m. Crown argued that Donaldson had been racing along the road and lost control rounding a final corner on Aberdeen. Crown said a

car driven by a Coldstream couple that had just turned onto Aberdeen Road from Highway 6 had to go into the northbound lane to avoid Donaldson’s car coming right at them in their southbound lane. Defence contends that Donaldson saw headlights of a car coming right at him or in his lane, and he accelerated and swerved left to avoid a head-on collision. The nine-day trial held over the course of three weeks wrapped up Monday afternoon as lawyers handed in closing submissions to Cole. In written copies given to the media, Crown lawyer Iain Currie said the evidence proves beyond a reasonable

doubt “not only that the accused drove too fast on Aberdeen Road so that he could not and did not maintain his lane and stop for the red light, but also that he did so intentionally, knowing of the danger his speed would create. “The Crown also submits that the evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused did not stop, provide his name and offer assistance, and did so in a state of at least wilful blindness that he had struck a person.” Referring to the better part of the three days Donaldson spent testifying on the witness stand, Currie said “the accused’s account (of what happened

that night) is inconsistent and profoundly illogical.” In response to Currie’s submission, Donaldson lawyers Glenn Verdurmen and Paul Danyliu wrote that “evidence relied upon by the Crown contains significant inconsistencies and much of it is highly unreliable.” Defence also said evidence presented before Cole has “been consistent with Donaldson’s version of events,” and that the Crown did not prove the charges against Donaldson beyond a reasonable doubt. “Mr. Donaldson should be acquitted of the charges,” wrote his lawyers. In concluding their 45-page submission, Verdurmen and Danyliu

said “Mr. Donaldson’s conduct did not amount to an act that should be criminalized. “There is no proof beyond a reasonable doubt that there is a marked departure from the standard of care that a reasonable person would have observed in the accused’s circumstances, and no proof that the accused failed to stop at

the scene of an accident with the intent to escape liability.” Cole told both sides he would give his judgment on Tuesday at 10 a.m. unless he was able to finish his reasons for judgment early. If he did, said Cole, he would notify both parties on Thursday, and the decision would be read Friday at 9 a.m.

fied a memorandum of understanding Monday with Coldstream and the Regional District of North Okanagan that will restructure the parks service. “This was an agreement that everyone brought the right spirit to and it’s better than what we had going in,” said Coun. Patrick Nicol, referring to years of fighting among the participants. The new structure will see some parks remain regional in scope while others will become the responsibility of individual jurisdictions.

“We’ve given up our right to go to RDNO.” — Bob Spiers

Vernon will hand ownership of Kal Beach and Marshall Field to the regional district while the city gets 10 regional district lots on Lakeshore Road. The city will become completely responsible for Polson Park. Opposition came from Coun. Bob Spiers. “Why do we have to transfer vast tracts of

land?” he said, adding that ownership of parks could have remained with existing jurisdictions while contracts allowed other jurisdictions to use them. Spiers is also concerned Vernon taxpayers will be left with upwards of $10 million in upgrades to Polson Park over 10 years. “We’ve given up our

right to go to RDNO to ask to participate.” However, Spiers’ colleagues downplayed the transfer of land titles. “The city is part owner of anything the regional district owns. I don’t agree that we just sold out the farm,” said Coun. Juliette Cunningham. While there has been some suggestion that Kal Beach is valued at $20 million, Cunningham says that is only possible if the property is developed. “I’d never want to see Kal Beach turned over for that,” she said, adding that the agreement

ensures the site remains park. Mayor Rob Sawatzky insists compromises were needed among all participants as a way of bringing the dispute to an end and fostering cooperation. “The agreement has warts and flaws but we’re looking for something to move forward with,” he said. With the MOU now signed, the regional district will begin drafting bylaws to formally change the structure of the parks service. Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe was absent Monday.

A costly plan to make a downtown Vernon property attractive to developers has been abandoned. Vernon council has supported a staff recommendation to not relocate utility lines underground at the city-owned Coldstream Hotel site on 31st Avenue. “We don’t have the money,” said Coun. Brian Quiring of council’s goal to tighten

expenditures. It was projected that the project could cost the city $570,000. “It’s not a priority. If

a developer purchases the land, they can do that (remove power poles) and gain more usable square footage,” said Quiring. In September, council endorsed a staff proposal to apply to B.C. Hydro for funding to move overhead utility lines underground. The goal was to prepare the property for an eventual sale to developers. “The removal of the works changes the site development potential

and options for multiple development,” stated a report at the time. However, staff advice to council has now changed. “Administration and staff have been working through the initial 2013/2014 budget. Through this process, the real estate manager and the manager of engineering development have concluded that this requested upgrade to the city property is not advisable given the current spending limitations and core services review,” said Brent Bandy, real estate manager, in a memo to council Monday. The city purchased the Coldstream Hotel site in 2004 and the plans at that time called for development of a cultural complex.

RCMP arrest hotel guests RogeR Knox

Morning Star Staff

The Lower Mainland trio started out staying at a Vernon hotel. They ended up with beds at the Vernon RCMP detachment. Officers were called Saturday at 4 a.m. to a report of three guests causing a disturbance by banging on doors and being loud in the hallways at the Holiday Inn Express in the 4700 block of 34th Street. “Just before our officers arrived, a second report came in with the caller stating that two males had just pulled the fire alarm (at the hotel),” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The description was they were dressed in dark clothing and they had just left by the west doors.” Police officers located the two men carrying bags. The pair turned away from police and began walking away. When officers told the two they were under arrest, they began to run, but were chased down and arrested. “The investigation learned that there were three males associated to the hotel room and their

associated vehicle was located in the parking lot,” said Molendyk. “The third suspect was found hiding in the vehicle. At first he refused to provide his identity.” All of the men were searched incidental to their arrest and more than $27,000 in Canadian currency was located on them. Also located was a 22-calibre Glock pistol and an altered Glock magazine (where the bullets are kept). “All three men were under the influence of alcohol at the time,” said Molendyk. A Dodge Avenger was towed in for investigation purposes. The three men, aged 26, 22 and 20 are all from the Lower Mainland area, and Molendyk said “one or two of them” are known to police in that area. Charges being forwarded to Crown counsel for consideration include causing a disturbance, mischief, breach of probation (one of the suspects), possession of firearm, possession of a prohibited device (the magazine clip), obstruction and resisting arrest. The trio was expected to appear in court Monday.

Stabbing victim taken to hospital RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

A family dispute resulted in one Vernon woman being taken to hospital. Just after 11 a.m. Sunday, RCMP rural officers received a call that a victim had been stabbed by her brother in the 9000 block of Winchester Road, off of Westside Road. “The police were able to call the suspect out of the house with the aid of a loud-hailer (a portable loudspeaker with built-in microphone and amplifier), and they were aware of him being in possession of a weapon,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The suspect exited his residence and, at first, would not obey commands and kept one hand behind his back.”

After extensive verbal coaching, the 59-year-old suspect obeyed police and was arrested without incident or harm. The victim, a

62-year-old woman, was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital for treatment of injuries to her left arm. A weapon was found in the home by police.

The suspect was held for court Monday to face potential charges of assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and uttering threats.

T

Concept lacks vision

here doesn’t appear to be much creativity at Vernon city hall. Council has unanimously endorsed a staff recommendation to expand the existing museum instead of constructing a purposebuilt structure in the downtown core. “Maintaining the museum in its current location and adding on to the building would serve to further anchor the area as a cultural centre,” states a staff report. The report goes on to say that “expansion of the building at its present location means creating an additional 18,000 square feet to meet its desired 30,000 square feet.” As a result, precious parking could be lost to the rear of the building, and given the always contentious issue of parking downtown, does that make sense? Also, staff suggests the footprint could be moved towards 32nd Avenue, eating into already limited open space. Richard Rolke The other question that arises is one of visual impact. A larger box, possibly with higher walls, could diminish the park-like setting of the civic complex. Remember, $860,000 was spent in 2010 to create the urban oasis known as Spirit Square. Nowhere in the staff report is there any discussion about the actual needs of the museum to preserve and promote the community’s heritage. Besides more exhibition space, room is required for an always growing collection of artifacts, as well as for programs that are highly in demand. Much like the art gallery, the museum could benefit from 16-foot ceilings if it wants to attract major travelling exhibits to town. And then there is the matter of climate control, something that is absolutely critical for ensuring the integrity of artifacts, many of them aging and fragile.

At no point does the staff report indicate what expansion of the existing museum will cost. It would be interesting to know how that option compares to constructing a stand-alone building, which could possibly be upwards of $10 million. Retrofits and expansion may be less but is that the best use of limited tax dollars? Some people at city hall will point out that museum officials have previously suggested they could make do with an expanded structure. But those comments were a sign of desperation, a fear that they would never get anything. During an interview Tuesday, museum president Ian Hawes expressed disappointment with council’s actions. That indicates that the museum’s wishes were either not understood or were ignored. The argument can be made that the public already owns the museum site and that will save money. But the city holds title to many lots downtown, so why not one of them? Also, the city purchased property for the art gallery so why is the museum being treated differently? There’s also another bureaucratic component to consider. The Regional District of North Okanagan is responsible for culture and Vernon’s partners have been clear that there must be collective ownership of property used in the function. Is council ready to relinquish a chunk of land right next to city hall to ensure Coldstream and electoral area taxpayers fund the museum? If they are not, why is the current site in the mix? Now that Vernon council has recommended a site, it will be up to the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee to determine the next steps for the museum. Let’s hope that unlike their Vernon colleagues, the other members of GVAC will actually provide some vision and leadership. Clearly, now is the time to think outside of the box.

It’s difficult to understand why a majority of Vernon council is so opposed to receiving a petition about the Okanagan Landing firefighters’ contract issue. No one is asking council members to break confidentiality and disclose labour and legal details in a public venue. They are also not being asked to enter into a debate with the person presenting the petition. While the petition calls for council to revisit its decision to end the firefighters’ contract, the politicians have complete control over that. All that’s actually being requested of council is to listen to a constituent, and in our democracy, that is a basic right. Residents should be permitted to appear before their elected representatives. In fact, making presentations to council is something Rob Sawatzky did several times prior to being elected mayor. It’s also unfortunate that the integrity of the petition is being undermined. “I looked through the signatures and many were not city residents. Many did not know what they were signing,” said Coun. Juliette Cunningham. Those concerns could be raised about every petition that has come before city hall, including possibly some that Cunningham agreed with. It’s likely that the bulk of the 1,670 names were from Vernon, and what actually counts is that people took the effort to organize a campaign and take pen to paper. Once again, that is part of our democratic tradition. And perhaps that is the bottom line, if council members are confident that ending the contract was best for the community, then there is no need to hide or belittle the actions of residents taking a stand.

Changes are needed

I

am writing this letter in response to Judie Steeves' article of Nov. 23, entitled "UBCO wastewater study causes concern." Many of us have been ringing the alarm over estrogenic compounds in water for years and have repeatedly been told by the Ministry of Environment as well as by some biologists not to worry, that the amounts were too minute to cause problems and that dilution was the solution to pollution. The study is now proving, along with numerous other studies done in Europe, that this is not so. As a director of SENS (Sustainable Environment Network Society) I represented SENS on the Vernon Liquid Waste Management Committee. We made it clear to the consultants hired by the city, as well as to Vernon council, that we strongly advocated different solutions than discharging effluent to Okanagan Lake. The first thing Vernon should be looking at is reducing the amount of water that is used, which of course would reduce the amount of sewage effluent that needs to be treated. We are living in the driest valley in Canada and are using more water than most Canadians.

no solutions Carole James, the NDP Critic for Social Development, outlined what she called her solution for increased food bank use in a recent letter to the editor. [1] Her stated solution is to "improve poverty rates by addressing issues of affordability such as housing, education, and skills training." That's all very well, but those are not solutions to poverty. Food Banks Canada identified the problem quite succinctly: "There is no shortage of lowpaid jobs in Canada…It is not so much the job sector that is important; what is important is the fact that 18 per cent of employed Canadians earn less than $17,000 per year." [2] Education and skills training are important, but they do nothing by themselves to create high-paying jobs and bring people out of poverty. Low cost housing, for its part, simply makes poverty slightly more bearable. Ultimately, as Food Banks Canada (and common sense) suggest, high-paying jobs are the only viable solution to poverty.

The second thing we should do is installing small independent sanitation systems in all areas that are not already hooked centrally, and in all industries that use large amounts of water. This means that the treated effluent would be re-used where it was produced, for irrigation or various industrial tasks, saving enormous amounts of water and reducing the

All the training in the world won't help if there are no good jobs - we'll simply be using our taxpayers' money to train people to go to Alberta where good jobs actually do exist. We have a huge opportunity in the Northern Gateway Pipeline to put hundreds of people to work in highly paid, highly skilled jobs - the most modern, most regulated, most scrutinized pipeline in Canadian history. A conservative estimate suggests that it will create 4,100 person-years of work in the initial stages and 58,000 person-years of work in ongoing jobs - yet both the Liberals and the NDP are busy throwing roadblocks in front of it. The pipeline won't solve all our economic problems, but it's a start. B.C. needs real positive change in the way we approach business in this province. We have to stop tying our farmers up in unnecessary red tape and driving them out of business, and we have to stop saying no to potential economic development. Otherwise we'll be forever stuck in the NDP/Liberal para-

digm - well educated, well-trained people scraping by in subsidized housing because there are no decent jobs. The poor in this province shouldn't have to choose between Alberta and food banks. scott Anderson BC Conservative candidate Bullying How many kids have to end their lives before bullying stops? The majority of us will say the answer to this question is zero. Generally, people want bullying to stop so we do our best to prevent it, but are we doing enough? Do the lectures received in elementary school about the effects of bullying truly make a difference? Does anti-bullying day really change a kid’s attitude? After the suicide of a young girl, I feel it is necessary to remind everyone of the individual roles they play in bullying and what they can do to prevent it. The first role is the victim; it’s important for victims to realize that no one is ever alone. If you’re a victim of bully-

demand on the central sewage treatment system. These "eco sanitation" systems are no longer risky. They work in buildings, cities, and rural areas all over the world. UBC's new CIRS building is using one, as is the Port of Portland building, the San Francisco Public Utility building and Barriere, B.C. just got awarded $6.7 million to build an eco sanitation system, and Bear River, Nova Scotia has been using one for years. Hurricane Sandy has given us a little taste of the disasters awaiting us due to climate change and aging infrastructure systems. Decentralizing sewage treatment systems is one of the recommended ways to protect public health against the water pollution that can result from storms or earthquakes and power outages, to say nothing of the millions of dollars that are saved in maintenance fees. It is unfortunate that important decisions such as how to handle wastes and how to conserve water, often follow the recommendations of expert companies that benefit from the status quo instead of from innovative solutions that are much less costly, more environmentally sound, and certainly safer than the alternative. Huguette Allen

ing ask for help and I guarantee you will receive it; people should never be afraid to make a difference in their own lives. Secondly there are the bystanders. The truth is: to witness someone get bullied and not say anything is just as bad as being the bully. If you are one of the people who so willingly answered, “zero”, to my initial question then never be a bystander; stand up for anyone and everyone. Finally we have the bullies themselves. There is no excuse for bullying; bringing other people down for whatever reason is no way to live, learn some respect. Before a bully can learn how to respect others they will have to learn how to respect themselves. Many kids have committed suicide as a result of being bullied; it’s sad that it takes an event like this to remind us of the extremes of bullying. In writing this letter I hope to remind everyone that they can make a difference. If you think your voice doesn’t matter you are wrong.

In the case of bullying, your voice can potentially save someone’s life: that is worth fighting for. nikita Efimoff

Coldstream and Lavington firefighters extinguished a fire that started from a hot tub on Aberdeen Road Saturday afternoon.

Weekend blaze destroys hot tub Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

A Coldstream family’s home was saved despite their hot tub going up in flames Saturday. Firefighters from both Coldstream and Lavington were called out to the blaze around 1:30 p.m. Saturday at 9300 Aberdeen Road. The fire started from a hot tub next to the home and is believed to be electrical or mechanical in nature as it was sparked near the base of the tub where the pumping system and motor is. “We managed to protect a large, heavy timber

building where a family resided and there was a tenant on the other side,” said Shane Code, Coldstream fire chief. “Very fortunate...we were lucky.” Firefighters just happened to be on hand at the hall that day and with the home being just a kilometre from the hall, firefighters had the blaze under control within 10 minutes of notification. “The public notified quickly via 911 and coming down to the hall themselves,” said Code. “We responded in minutes due to members being at the hall.”

lowing distance, leave your cell phone alone, and especially don’t drive if you’ve had too many drinks.” Members of NOTS and the Integrated Road Safety Unit conducted a pair of CounterAttack road checks over the weekend in the North Okanagan. Four motorists were issued 90-day IRPs for failing their tests. Two people were given IRP warnings, one motorist was taken off the road for 24 hours for being impaired by drugs and there were three minor drug seizures. Police also issued 22 speeding tickets during the road checks, wrote three seatbelt violation tickets and there were 23 other violations. A total of 25 written warnings were also handed out. Over the past week in the North Okanagan, there were five 24-hour prohibitions (three for drugs, two alcoholrelated), five threeday IRPs and the four 90-day IRPs. There were no impaired drivers and eight vehicles were impounded.

Don Blakely, a member of Vernon Search and Rescue, has been presented with the award for exemplary service from the National Search and Rescue Secretariat, which is part of the federal government. “It came as a surprise because awards are not the motivation for doing this,” said Blakely, a lawyer. “Helping people is the motivation.” Blakely has volunteered with SAR for 24 years, including search responses, leading strategic planning through numerous committees and panels, developing teaching and revising training courses and assisting in the development of the national SAR insurance program. “Without Mr. Blakely’s energetic,

mom gives you a big hug,” he said. “And in the worst cases and a person is not alive, bringing them back to their family is valuable too.”

Proposed zoning changes are giving Lumby residents something to crow about. About nine people attended a public hearing Monday to provide input on a bylaw that would permit laying hens on any lot that contains a singlefamily dwelling and is zoned rural or residential (except the residential manufactured home park zone). “An entire family showed up to support chickens,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. Kevin Acton “One woman was concerned about feed being stored in backyards and attracting rodents.” The main goal behind urban hens is to promote food sustainability. Roosters would not be allowed as a way of reducing noise conflict. The proposed bylaw also would permit secondary suites and no one spoke about that at the hearing. “Secondary suites are a way of providing people with affordable places to live,” said Acton. “It also helps young families get started with a home with a mortgage helper.” Council gave third reading to the bylaw Monday and adoption will be considered at a future date.

“Don is more than deserving of this award. He puts thousands of hours into SAR local-

ly, provincially and nationally,” said Pete Wise, Vernon SAR president.

A Community That Cares ...

I’ll Be Home For Christmas is a new community initiative involving a group of caring business who wanted to help a deserving person or family in need, especially during the Holiday Season as costs for most households increase. It is designed for those who might be considered the ‘working poor,’ who have had a setback due to medical reasons or other life situations that make it tough to get through the month of December. Here is how it works! Each year in time for Christmas, a group of locally-owned businesses willing to sponsor the event will be looking for referrals of deserving persons or families to be awarded the gift of FREE RENT, to a maximum of $750. The person or family will not apply. This will be a surprise gift! “ We understand the value of having a home,

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” ~ William James

and very much wanted to be part of this community building initiative.” “Nixon Wenger is thrilled to support such an obviously worthwhile initiative.” “Vernon is such an amazing community and gave to my family in our time of need, so I feel it is important to give back to Vernon!”

“Vernon is still a small town. I believe it is important for local businesses to help out local people when they can.”

“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give...”   ~ Winston Churchill

I’ll be home for Christmas “ The idea of helping a local family in need, especially at Christmas, was very appealing. It’s just the right thing to do!”

“It’s not just about building homes….it is about building communities.” “We know how financially demanding this time of year can be and we are pleased to help support a family in our community.”

If you would like to get involved in the 2012 I’ll Be Home for Christmas initiative, please contact Darcy Griffiths at Re/Max 250.549.4161.

Local talents team up to celebrate the season Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

Their stories are not too dissimilar. Both found their voices and musical ability at a young age in their hometown of Vernon. Their community watched them grow up on local stages. Both went off to kick-start their music careers: one going east to the Big Smoke, the other south to Music City. And neither has ever forgotten where home lies — especially as Christmas time nears. Singer-songwriter talents Jodi Pederson and Raquel Warchol are about to join up for a Christmas concert on Dec. 19. It’ll be the first time the two young women have performed exclusively together. “Ever since I met Jodi, I have wanted to play a show with her. I thoroughly enjoyed Jodi’s Christmas concerts in the past, so I asked her if she wanted to do one again this year with me. So here we are! I can’t wait to share the stage with such a talent,” said Warchol. A Kalamalka Secondary School grad, Pederson, kicked off her career with a chance meeting with Toronto-based producer Jack Lenz when she was just 17. In 2009, she released her first album, Seasons, which was produced by Asher Lenz (son of Jack.) The album did well and some of the songs were featured on radio and used on the TV series Crash and Burn and Men with Brooms as well as on the feature film, Waiting for Summer. However, it was her 2010 holiday single, Christmas With You, produced by Vernon’s John Newton, that earned her the most success, hitting No. 33 on the Top 20 Hot AC (adult contemporary) charts. Last year, Pederson embarked on her cross Canada Much Love tour with her accompanist and cousin Joel Pederson. The

Now residing in Vancouver, Pederson is currently working on her second album and says she is happy to be home with her family and is looking forward to this year’s holiday concert with Warchol. “Raquel and I first met years ago when we both performed at Polson Park. I couldn’t believe this tiny girl was just rockin’ out on stage — amazing talent,” said Pederson. “We began performing at the same events such as Canada Day in Vernon. She and I are just two girls in a sea of male musicians in this town, so we were bound to get together for some songwriting and performances.” Also a talented guitarist, Warchol has been writing songs and performing since she was a child. At 12 years old, she took home the Best New Artist of the Year award at the

Scorpion Music Awards (now known as the B.C. Interior Music Awards.) She made her first trip down to Nashville when she was a young teen, and turned the heads of major players in the music industry, including the vice president of

the world’s largest talent firm, the William Morris Agency, who labeled her a “professional songwriter.” While studying at Vernon Secondary, she had the opportunity to travel back and forth to L.A. and Nashville to write with songwriters and artists that ranged from writers with No. 1 hits. “Writing songs has always been an outlet for me,” said Warchol. “You have to be vulnerable to write a song. The more your lyrics and melodies reflect who you are as a person, the more likely someone else will be able to relate to it too.” Along the way she has performed on the Great Wall of China, as well as opening for the likes of country star Aaron Pritchett and rock legends Foreigner. She has also been invited to perform twice at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival, and more recently gave a live performance at Kelowna’s Streaming Cafe, which was broadcast internationally online. Aside from her numerous trips to Nashville and L.A., a contagious feel-good buzz transferred from stage to students this past September when Warchol opened for the band Hey Ocean at UBC Okanagan. Now 19, she has recently recorded new material that she believes portrays her raw and organic simplicity of tasteful guitar riffs infused with vocals that capture the breathiness and soulful touch of her voice. She is ready and ecstatic to perform her newly recorded tunes live and share them with local audiences. Audiences can also expect a few Christmas duets when Pederson and Warchol stage An Old Fashioned Christmas at Powerhouse Theatre. The concert, sponsored by Kiss FM and Wentworth Music, takes the stage Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. Special guest Windmills will open. Tickets are $20 at the Bean to Cup, Butcher Boys and Wentworth Music. Proceeds go to the Canadian Diabetes Association

Sound of Music a peak performance

could use the same cliché for every time I have written about The Sound of Music. You know how it goes. It has to do with the first song you hear performed by Kristin Froneman that flibbertigibbet girl who lives in the Abbey. Staged at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre this past Friday and Saturday, this amateur production of The Sound of Music saw hills, make that mountains, come alive once again. I have been an admitted fan of the 1965 movie since I was a young girl. So much so that I remember going up to a couple of long-haired boys wearing KISS T-shirts in a record shop and

TheaTre review

suggesting they get a copy of The Sound of Music soundtrack. Their reaction, dumbfounded. But hopefully, they gave it a listen! Produced by Sparkling Hill Resort (fitting considering the Austrian roots of the resort’s owners), as well as local soprano/vocal studio owner Melina Moore, this production was based on the 1960 musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein. The musical had superb orchestration and pacing and used simple staging (including projected scenes of Salzburg on the performing arts centre’s giant screen) to its effectiveness. At a cool two hours and 15 minutes, it managed to tell the story and include all those beloved songs without leaving one feeling empty. This production also had the added bonus of the Okanagan Symphony performing the score and accompaniment. Led by an enthusiastic Rosemary Thomson on the baton, who could be seen

mouthing all the words and smiling at the youngsters on stage, the musicians and vocalists were superb, and really brought the show to life. (Kudos especially to the small, unseen chorus in the pit who added to the heavenly voices of the nuns, and later could be seen accepting the second and third place awards at the Salzburg festival. Brava, ladies!) And where they found all those incredible talents to play the seven von Trapp children right here in this little, old valley of ours is beyond me. From the youngest, Alexa MacDougall (Gretl), to the oldest, Ella Kuntz (Liesl), the kids were on top of their game –– even when some distortion on their microphone headsets arose. Let’s just say, the future looks bright for these youth to take on more stage roles as they grow older. And then came this age-old question. Just how do you solve a problem like Maria? Well, you get

the truly blessed voice of Melina Moore to take on the role. Moore, known for directing local productions of Les Miz, The Producers and Pirates of Penzance, came out from behind the scenes to show not only what her voice can do, but her acting chops. What can you say? She is the total package. Her Maria was extremely likeable. Her chemistry, especially with the children, was believable, and her voice, well, magical. Every song was pitch perfect and keyed to hit high notes not tangible for most humans. Not only did she match beautifully with her “brood” of seven in numbers such as Do-Re-Mi and The Lonely Goatherd (the required yodelling in that song alone is enough to trip up the tongue), her duets with the Captain (Paul Rossetti) were subtle enough so that she didn’t drown out her costar’s light and agile tenor. And although he obviously

is not a guitar player, Rossetti’s performance of Edelweiss in the Salzburg Festival scene was absolutely beautiful. Just like in the film, with Christopher Plummer performing the role, he had many in the audience with a big ol’ lump in their throats. Don Cecile and Susan Currie also did their best with their stuffy and sly characters (Max Detweiler and Elsa Schraeder) bringing much comic relief. As Mother Abbess (Susan Evans) sang so beautifully: “Climb every mountain... ‘til you find your dream.” I think the cast and crew of this production of The Sound of Music found their peak performance. Sparkling Hill Resort is staging The Sound of Music as part of its New Year’s Eve two-night celebration package at the resort.

Dvoira YanovskY For The Morning Star

Catch the season’s spirit with fabulous jazz vocalist Anna Jacyszyn and the Jazz Café Band at the Vernon Jazz Club this Saturday. Jacyszyn and the band have a festive evening planned for the fans. “We will be performing some James Bond classics and some fun Christmas songs that Julie London and Dean Martin fans will recognize. The rest of the evening will consist of original songs and arrangements taken from the likes of Duke Ellington, Horace Silver, and Arlen & Mercer,” said Jacyszyn. Winner of the 2010 Okanagan Arts Award for music, Jacyszyn pours life into the lyrics and stories she tells, describing herself as “someone who cares about the stories of the songs I sing.” Jacyszyn and the band ground their music in the jazz standards of the Great American Songbook with a twist, adding unique spins like pairing a swing with a bossa nova. “From bebop, to modern, to ‘60s soul jazz, this band loves taking a classic and giving it the freedom of exploration,” said Jacyszyn. Jacyszyn began her career singing backup for dance music artists like Yazz, Marshall Jefferson, and Cher, but her true love is jazz. “Jazz is my life career.  I have been blessed through this genre of music to travel around the world, from Monte Carlo to Singapore, Europe to Oman and the Emirates, and now back in Canada where I continue to promote world class jazz in Kelowna,” said Jacyszyn.

Opening doors to dental care Cara Brady Morning Star Staff

All some people want for Christmas is for their teeth to stop hurting. The Community Dental Access Centre has been helping people of all ages with emergency dental care for several years and the clinic has been seeing patients since the end of September, working through a waiting list that at one time had more than 500 people who needed help with some or all of the cost of dental care. The Dental Access Program started in 2002 with a small group of concerned dental health professionals, including Laine Lowe and Dominique Bedard, as well as other community members, to help people in urgent need of dental care. By 2006, the committee realized that there was a need for a broader range of services, including preventive care for children and adults. The centre works with the Integrated Advisory Committee representing other community agencies which make their clients aware of the services. “There are so many people who don’t get the opportunity to get dental care. The mouth is just as important as any other part of the body,” said Sue Lighthall, a dental hygienist who volunteers at the clinic. The clinic also has one staff

Community Dental Access Centre volunteer hygienist Sue Lighthall gets ready to do an examination for a client. The clinic provides dental services for low-income families and individuals who qualify. 2012, the Community Dental Access Centre served 136 clients for a total value of service of just over $100,000. Of this amount, 35 per cent was pro bono work by dentists, 26 per cent was paid by the centre, 24

per cent was paid by insurance, and 15 per cent was paid by the clients. These percentages will likely change as treatment is now being done at the clinic.

Poinsettias keep blooming

verywhere you go these days, poinsettias are on display. Most houses will have them for the Christmas season. For some of you who would like to keep them going longer, I found an old article about taking care of your poinsettia during and after the Christmas season. I have one which I kept from last Christmas. I didn’t do anything special to it and right now it has a few red bracts. It spent the summer outside in the morning sun. Select poinsettia plants with green foliage extending Jocelyne sewell all the way down to the soil line. This is a good indication that the plants have active, healthy roots. Look for plants that have small green buttons (cyathia) in the centre of the coloured bracts. These buttons will eventually develop into little yellow flowers. The showy coloured parts of poinsettias that most people think of as the flowers are actually coloured bracts (modified leaves). Protect plants from temperatures under 50 degrees F (10 C). Chilling causes the leaves to drop. Place plants in a room where there is

— Sue Lighthall dentist, Dr. Cindy Gammie Hansen, and several dentists and hygienists who volunteer, as well as volunteers who help with the administrative work. The board of directors is made up of volunteers. Much of the equipment, supplies and labour and computer software to get the space set up as a dental office was donated. “People have been so appreciative of what we do. They say things like, ‘You don’t know what this means to me.’ Everyone is so thankful,” said executive director Terri Jones. The clinic is presently open only two days a week but there are hopes that with more volunteer dentists and more procedures done, there will be more funding and more people can be helped. The clinic is funded by grants, donations, by clients’ insurance, if any, and by whatever they are able to pay themselves. From March 2011 to April

for only

sufficient natural light. Poinsettias must have at least six hours of bright indirect light to thrive. Never allow them to sit in water, and only water when the soil feels dry to the touch. Keep the plant from touching cold windows. Keep poinsettias away from warm or cold drafts from radiators, air registers or open doors and windows. Ideally poinsettias require daytime temperatures of 60 to 70 degrees F (16 C to 21 C) and night time temperatures around 55 degrees F (13 C). High temperatures will shorten the plant’s life. Move the plant to a cooler room at night, if possible. Check the soil daily. Water plants thoroughly after purchase. Be sure to punch holes in foil so water can drain into a saucer, and discard excess water. Water when soil is dry. Wilted plants will tend to drop bracts sooner. Fertilize the poinsettia if you keep it past the holiday season. Apply a houseplant fertilizer once a month. Do not fertilize when it is in bloom. With good care, a poinsettia will last six to eight weeks in your home. With a little extra care, it is possible to keep your poinsettia year-round and have it bloom the following Christmas. In February, your poinsettia flower will have faded and lateral growth will

have begun. In March, remove flowers and cut stems to six inches. June 1, repot the plant in a larger pot, if necessary, and plant outside in the pot. July, pinch all lateral shoots to four inches. You can root shoots, if desired, then pot. End of August, dig up the pot and bring the poinsettia inside. Check for bugs prior to bringing it in the house. From Sept. 20 until Dec. 1, keep the poinsettia in light from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Place in a dark place (eg. closet) from 5 p.m. until 8 a.m. By following these cyclical tips, your poinsettia will return to its full bloom later in December. The colours of the bracts are created through “photoperiodism,” meaning that they require darkness (12 hours at a time for at least five days in a row) to change colour. On the other hand, once poinsettias finish that process, the plants require abundant light during the day for the brightest colour. A lot of time and money has gone into research and testing to prove that poinsettias are not poisonous. This will be my last column for the year and I will be back on Jan. 9. I wish all of you merry Christmas, happiness and peace in your heart. For information: 250-558-4556.

This Holiday Season Upgrade to a High Efficiency Furnace

y the time this column goes to press I will be in sunny Mexico celebrating a significant birthday. Time for sunshine, warm waters, rest and relaxation, perhaps an adventure or two, and NO surprise birthday party! Of course I needed an all-inclusive resort, a good book or two to read, comfortable shoes for walking, and good company, all of which I have nicely arranged for the next eight days. For the rest of you, (wonder women that we cathi Litzenberger think we are), madly rushing around trying to get all the shopping, baking, wrapping, mailing, arranging done just right, and in time for Christmas, not to

mention fitting in the office parties, dinner parties, concerts, musicals and kids’ school performances, I have a couple of quick and easy ideas for dinner. The first is a chicken parmesan, and the second a wonderful linguine with a clam sauce. Favourite Chicken Parmesan 1 cup bread crumbs 3 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese 3 eggs, beaten 2 whole chicken breasts, cut in half and boned 1 - 14 oz. can tomato sauce 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese Mix bread crumbs and 3 tbsp. parmesan cheese together. Dip chicken pieces in eggs, then in crumb mixture. Fry until golden brown. Put pieces into a baking dish and spread tomato sauce over all. Sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses

over top. Bake for 1 hour at 350 F. Linguine with Red Clam Sauce 1 medium onion 3-4 cloves garlic, minced 3 stalks celery, sliced 3 tbsp. olive oil 1 - 28 oz. can Italian tomatoes 1 tsp. salt 2- 7 oz. cans baby clams, with liquid 1 bay leaf 1 tsp. dried oregano 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled Coarsely ground black pepper to taste Linguine for four In a medium skillet, sauté onion, garlic, and celery in oil until lightly golden. Add next 7 ingredients and simmer, covered, for 1 hour or more. Just before serving, cook linguine. Drain well. Mix with half the clam sauce and toss. Serve in shallow soup bowls. Pass the remaining sauce.

“Our services are not free but greatly reduced, depending on income level, so that we can help as many people as possible with the resources we have. We will become as self sufficient as possible,”

said Jones. She said the board members know what it is like to need dental care, with some either having been very sick after not having an infection cared for or knowing someone who has had serious health

effects from lack of dental care. “I think there are many people who don’t understand the need and how serious it is to leave dental care unattended. Dental infections can affect the heart and pancreas and all other parts of the body. We want people to get help before things get dangerous,” said Jones. Community Dental Access Centre services include preventive and restorative care, hygiene treatment, urgent care treatment, denture/partial program, and cancer screening. Programs include the Tobacco Cessation Program, the Small Smiles Program (one to two years with the first dental checkup free), and the Kidz Cavity Prevention Club (ages two to 12 years). For more information, call 778-4757779 or e-mail info@ CDACentre.ca. The community can help by dropping by for the Christmas Sale and Loonie Drive Dec. 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the centre at 3107 C- 31st Ave (one block west of the bus station).

Safety tips for holidays LeafSource

Morning Star Staff

Preparations for Christmas are underway but residents should ensure they also consider safety. According to the Vernon Fire Department, the festive celebrations of December come with danger and a high fire risk. “During the December holiday season the incidences of fires and fire losses involving candles, home heating equipment, clothes dryers, and electrical sources increase significantly higher Lawrie Skolrood than these same categories for the rest of the year,” said Lawrie Skolrood, deputy fire chief. Here are a few fire safety tips: Christmas trees • Ensure your artificial tree is “Fire Resistant”. • Ensure your live tree is fresh and moist at all times. Cut the stalk at an angle and keep the tree well watered. Dropping needles indicate a dry, highly flammable tree. • Set up live and artificial trees away from fireplaces, heaters, and other heat sources and ensure they are not blocking an exit. Lighting • Indoors or outdoors, use only lights that have been tested and labeled by a recognized testing agency such as the ULC or CSA. • Inspect holiday lights yearly for broken or cracked sockets, frayed or bare wires, or loose connections. Throw out damaged sets. • If using extension cords, make sure they are rated for the intended use and in good condition. • Never use electric lights on a metallic tree. The tree can become charged with electricity from faulty lights, and a person touching a branch could be electrocuted. • Turn off all holiday lights when you go to bed or leave the house. Decorations • Choose non-flammable decorations whenever possible. • Keep decorations, curtains, clothing and spray aerosol cans away from open flames or heat sources, such as lights, candles, heaters and fireplaces. • Never put a candle on or near the branches of your Christmas tree. • Mount candles on metal or glass candleholders, or place them in noncombustible containers. The Vernon Fire Department gives credit Dry Comfortable for these tips to the Manitoba Office of the Fire Experience In All Commissioner. Conditions.

stops customers pain within days!

“It works! I’ll take another two bottles please!” This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had finally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian. Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away.“ She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone - as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.”

By now you are probably wondering what is LeafSource and why is it so effective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university research. LeafSource helps regulate the inflammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70 - 80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems — often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops through the aging process. With joint infl ammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and inflammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive anti-infl ammatory drugs that cause

Best Superfood with multiple health 2010 Bes t in Canada Award

more problems than they solve. There are absolutely no side effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent antiinflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction to inflammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily. This product gets results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. Aside from its incredible anti-infl ammatory and pain reducing ability, it has also been shown to improve the performance of your daily nutrition and vitamin programs. It helps increase the absorption of vital nutrients, which in turn helps these nutrients work better. Better absorption = better results! It’s almost as if they have become supercharged! LeafSource has also been shown to help enhance energy levels, improve intestinal health, strengthen hair, skin and nails and improve immune function. To see someone go from intense pain to a new lease on life within a week is truly incredible. Imagine being able to move freely without pain. Who wouldn’t want to get out of bed in the morning with more energy? It’s amazing how much of this stuff we take

for granted, until it’s gone! Ian adds, “I often recommend that LeafSource be taken with other natural joint products in order to help them work better and provide even faster relief. One of the things I hear most often from people who have tried LeafSource is they just plain feel better, have more energy and less pain. We’re so confi dent, we guarantee LeafSource 100%! That alone should be enough to try this incredible product.”

Lake Country plans for a future with safe drinking water Morning Star Staff

consistent level of service to all existing customers, full compliance with existing Interior Health Authority policies, adequate capacity to meet the growth needs of the district and proactive management to minimize future risks.

The infrastructure improvements will be paid for through a combination of residential, commercial and agricultural water rates, provincial and federal government grants and development cost charges.

The financial strategy is based on the best possible information available and is flexible regarding growth, inflation and grants. Council approved $50 annual increases on water rates over the next four years.

“We need water that is reliable, safe and clean,” said Buchholz. “It is the right thing to do. Delaying spending now only results in increased costs later.”

A 20-year capital projects summary was developed to highlight the details of each project. Following the Kalamalka Lake inter-

The District of Lake Country has adopted a master water plan which supports growth and recognizes the agricultural role in the community. The plan provides a broad assessment of the district’s future water source, treatment and distribution needs, and proposes a number of infrastructure improvements over the next 20 years. “Everyone deserves safe drinking water and the district has the responsibility to provide safe water,” said Greg Buchholz, operations manager. “The system is in need of renewal because it is old and some infrastructure is starting to fail. The new plan will save us money in the long run, but only if we make investments in our water system now.” The plan emphasizes the need to achieve a

Vipers face BCHL holiday hurdles Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Vipers have a lot of ground to make up, and with four Interior Division games before the Christmas break, they may not get a better opportunity to get back in the B.C. Hockey League playoff race. Five points separate the second-place Merritt Centennials (15-10-1-1) from the last-place Snakes (10-13-0-7), however Vernon will need a monumental turnaround to climb the standings. The Vipers dropped their third straight game Saturday night, falling 4-3 to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in front of 1,600 fans at Wesbild Centre. Vernon entertains the first-place Penticton Vees (207-0-3) Friday at Wesbild before heading to the Kootenays Saturday to tangle with the Trail Smoke Eaters (14-18-0-1) at Cominco Arena. “We’ve lost a lot of one-goal hockey games and we need to change that,” said Vernon head coach Jason Williamson. “It’s tight. We’ve just got to get in (to playoffs), and I have faith that we will.” Williamson had less faith in the officiating Saturday. The 16-11-1-4 Bulldogs’ Jon Brumwell, with his second of the season, scored the winner on the powerplay off a goalmouth scramble with 2:26 to play. The man advantage came after a marginal goalie interference call by referee Ward Pateman on Vernon’s Mitch McAllister. “He screwed it up,” said Williamson. “That just seems to be the way things are going right now. We can’t afford to have the ref be the difference in the game. “We put ourselves in a bad spot being down 3-1 early, but we should have at least sent it to overtime.” The Vipers’ three most recent recruits – Liam Board (7th goal), second star Dexter Dancs (3rd) and Andrew Tegeler (1st) – handled Vernon’s scoring against the Dawgs. Ryan Lough, pocketing his 13th and 14th goals, and Matthew Hansen, with his sixth, pegged Alberni to a twogoal lead after one period. “The new players have brought some life and jump into our lineup,” said Williamson. “They’ve bought into what we’re trying to do here. Taking a line from Janet Jackson’s 1986 pop classic What Have You Done For Me Lately?, Williamson added: “We’ve had some underachievers and if the new guys are going to come in and take the jobs of the guys that have been here,

Natalia VigNola/MorNiNg Star

Vernon Vipers' Mitch McAllister is hassled by the Alberni Valley Bulldogs' Kurt Gosselin in B.C. Hockey League action Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. The Bulldogs scored a late powerplay goal to ground Vernon 4-3. then so be it.” Dancs’ play has earned him a shot on Vernon’s top line with Adam Tambellini and Pearce Eviston; Williamson’s other units include Board, Aaron Hadley and Tegeler; Colton Sparrow, Brendan Persley and Braedan Russell; and Logan Mick, McAllister and Michael Roberts. SNAKE BITES: Former Viper forward Jedd Soleway had

four points in two games since being traded to the Vees last week. After collecting an assist in his debut, a 7-1 win over the Centennials Friday night, Soleway had a goal and two helpers and was named first star as the Vees iced the Langley Rivermen 5-1 Saturday...Vernon forward TJ Dumonceaux has missed the last three games with a knee injury, and Craig Martin is still recovering from a broken ankle.

Perepolkin sweeps field for B.C. berth Morning Star Staff

MorNiNg Star File

Vernon skip Trevor Perepolkin tracks his shot.

This is probably the first year since he was 14 that Trevor Perepolkin hasn’t played in the local Super Curling League. The step back doesn’t seem to have diminished his skill level much. Perepolkin, who instead curls Mondays with “a group of buddies,” iced Kamloops’ Michael Smith 9-6 in the A Final of the Okanagan Zone Men’s Playdowns Sunday morning at the Kelowna Curling Club. Perepolkin – backed by Armstrong’s Tyler Orme at third, and the front end of Kamloops’ James McKenzie and Kelowna’s

Chris Anderson – will compete in provincials, Feb. 5-10, in Parksville. “We’ve been real close in the last few years to qualify, so it’s nice to get back there,” said Perepolkin, the father of sixmonth-old daughter Hana. Perepolkin’s rink practises together once a week, and they have stayed competition ready by entering World Curling Tour events in Vernon, Kamloops and Red Deer. With provincials a reality, he added: “We’ll dial it up a notch. We’re just half a step off being a very competitive team.” Jamie Sexton’s Vernon rink of third

Michael Longworth and front-enders Hugh Bennett and Jon Gardner, claimed the second B.C. berth by shading Smith 8-7 in the B final. Sexton started at 1-2, but then reeled off four wins to advance. The march started with a 7-6 win over Kamloops’ Brent Yamada Saturday, and continued with Sunday wins over Kelowna’s David Mellof (9-4) and Kamloops’ Scott DeCap (7-6). Meanwhile, Vernon’s Jim Cotter begins the Canadian Open of Curling tonight (7:00) against Calgary’s Kevin Koe at Prospera Place in Kelowna.

Rebels raid coast Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Advertising Works Rebels went 4-0 in Petite ringette tournament play last weekend in the Fraser Valley, ending with an 8-4 win over the host Invaders Sunday. Alyssa Carter led the Rebels with three goals and one assist. Madison Fox had two goals and Abygayle Williamson, Hailey Quiring and Julie Francis each had a goal and assist. Netminder Liam Van Wyk had plenty of support from game MVP Georgia Lannon and Katie Finlayson. The Rebels, coached by Darcy Quiring and Scott Finlayson, opened the tourney by bouncing the Fraser Valley Thunder 13-8 Friday. Fox (3+3), Williamson (3+2), Carter (2+1, game MVP), Quiring (2+1), Ashly Shwaluk, Lannon and Danika Bellamy handled the offence in front of a stellar Van Wyk. A 2+2 performance from Carter kept the Rebels rolling in a 7-5 win over the Port Coquitlam/Ridge Meadows Avalanche. Williamson (2+1), Fox (game MVP), Lannon and Shwaluk all found the net, and Francis had one assist. Bellamy, Finlayson and Quiring added plenty hustle for the Rebels. The Rebels opened play Saturday by silencing the Surrey Mockingjays 14-1. Fox (3+3), Carter (3+2),

Williamson (3+1), Lannon (2G), Shwaluk (1+2), Quiring (1+2, game MVP) and Finlayson supplied the firepower. Van Wyk came just short of the shutout. In the Petite skills competition, Williamson and Carter finished onetwo in the fastest skater event, Fox was second in shooting and Van Wyk put in an amazing effort in the goalie showdown. In other Petite play, the Vernon DCT Chambers Voltage went 2-for3 on the weekend, starting with an 8-4 pounding of the West Kelowna Fireworks Saturday. Emma Elders fired four goals, Emma Lochhead chipped in with a goal and two assists, and Grace Cornell, Giselle Torres and Jaden Scott notched singles. Kenzie Koshure pitched in with two assists and Mackenzie Munroe had one. Brooke Buller was outstanding in net. On Sunday morning, the Bolts zapped the Kelowna Untouchables 9-5, with Rylie Marchand, Elders and Munroe each netting pairs. Carly Newman, Levi Knopf and Torres collected singles, and Bryn Taylor-Hawes, Munroe and Koshure helped out with a couple of assists apiece.

Sovereign draws international talent masters Teck B.C. Cup category and younger sister, Sarah Mehain, competed in her first para-nordic race on Friday. On Saturday, Sarah raced against sit skier Emily Suchy, who won her category in the 2012 B.C. Winter Games. Hosting the Teck B.C. Cup provided an early start to the season for the Sovereign Lake program. And although it seemed the event was ambushed by the Canmore skiers, Sovereign did make a presence on the podium. Podium results in Saturday’s classic mass start races: Hooper, second, Masters women 50-59 10-km; Sarah Purslow, first, Masters women 30-39 10-km; Trevor Embleton, first, Masters men 30-39 15-km; Hannah Mehain, third, Juvenile girls 15-km; Ian Oliphant, first, Bantam boys 2-km; Zoe Plummer, third, Pee Wee Girls 1.4-km; Annika Czenczek, first, Atom girls; and Mitchell Bond, first, Atom boys 800-m. Sunday’s free races podium results included: Hooper, third, masters women 10-km; Hannah Mehain, third, Juvenile girls 5-km; Oliphant, first, Bantam boys 2-km, and Bond, first, Atom 800-m. “The race could not have happened without the countless number of volunteers and their efforts to stand out in the cold for timing, marshalling, course preparation and award ceremonies, or inside making sure all of the results are tallied and people are fed,” said Sharon Clarke, chief of race.

JULIE MELANSON For The Morning Star

Local and international ski racers swarmed Sovereign Lake Nordic Resort last weekend for the Teck B.C. Cup and Haywood NorAm races. For Swedish skier Jens Eriksson, it was his first time to Canada. “I am very impressed with this area; it’s really, really nice,” said Eriksson. “You have a lot of snow and a lot of tracks. We have done really nice training days here.” Eriksson showed spectators and his competition he is serious about racing by finishing 25 seconds ahead of the men’s field in the classic 15-kilometre race. The senior men’s division demonstrated superb skiing technique as 80 competitors started out, with the teams sticking close together in the tracks and appearing to work together. On the second lap, the Swedish team had moved apart as Eriksson explained his teammates “were tired,” so he passed them to take the clean lead. Many in the Haywood NorAm used the races as preparation for the World Cup series next weekend in Canmore, including Sovereign skier Matt Wylie, who entered the individual start race on Sunday. He now lives and trains with the Alberta World Cup Academy. Senior women’s NorAm series leader, Brittany Webster, claimed Saturday’s 10-km classic.

Vernon’s Aidan Buckley has qualified for Youth Bowling Canada provincials, March 2 in Vernon and Kelowna. Buckley, 10, topped the Bantam Boys division in Zone single finals at Capri Valley Lanes recently, rolling an 873 (174-140-163113-283) in the fivegame scratch tournament. Provincial winners advance to YBC nationals, in Vancouver, in May.

“The World Cup is next week and for us it’s really important to put in a good hard pace from start to finish,” said Webster. Vernon’s Heather Mehain, who also lives

and trains in Canmore, earned 13th-place finishes in the 10-km classic and free events. Racing is a family affair for the Mehain clan, as mom, Mae Hooper, raced in the

Bolduc banks overtime winner for Knights

Morning Star Staff

Defenceman Tyler Bolduc used the extra room in three-on-three overtime wisely Saturday night at McArthur Island Arena in Kamloops. The 18-year-old Salmon Arm product scored the winner, with 69 seconds remaining, as the North Okanagan Knights shaded the Kamloops Storm 4-3 in double OT. The Knights moved to 18-8-12 in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, two points back of the Doug Birks Divisionleading Sicamous Eagles, 5-1 winners Saturday over the Princeton Posse. “It was a hard-working goal,” said Knights’ rookie winger Colton Thibault. “He jumped into the rush, took a pass from Steven

Pantazopoulos and first-timed a forehand top shelf.” First star Morgan Johnston, with his 14th and 15th goals of the season, and Brett Hawrys, with his seventh, also scored for the Knights. Johnston forced overtime midway through the third period with Josh Ellis drawing the assist. Thibault, a 17-year-old Vernon rookie who assisted on Johnston’s second-period snipe and recorded the monster hit of the night, was chosen third star. “I was hitting guys a lot and finishing my checks,” said the 6-foot2, 180-pound Thibault, fifth in Knights’ points with 6-14-20. “There are bigger guys and there is a lot

more physicality than quad (Major Midget). “I’m having a lot of fun. We’re coming together now and respecting each other more. We just have to keep supporting one another.” Connor Fortems, with his 10th and 11th goals, and Devin Oakes, with his sixth, replied for the fourth-place Storm (12-152-4), who visit the Knights Friday night (7:30, Nor-Val Sports Centre). North Okanagan outshot Kamloops 43-35 with Austin Buzzell taking the win and Marcus Beeley the loss. The Knights visit the 14-11-3-1 Revelstoke Grizzlies Saturday night 2013

Andy Oakes, president of the Okanagan Hockey School which owns the Lakers, said he’s positive about the sale. “I think the community of 100 Mile House is a quality community for the KIJHL,” Oakes told Black Press Sports. “I think it’s exciting for the league to be going into a new market.” Oakes, who dealt with 100 Mile House president Tom Bachynski and his group, said he feels they will be a solid franchise. The team will be known as the Wranglers. WISE BUYERS READ THE LEGAL COPY: Vehicle(s) may be shown with optional equipment. Dealer may sell or lease for less. Limited time offers.

Coke boys fall in semi Morning Star Staff

Lisa VanderVeLde/Morning star

Jared Sexsmith of the Charles Bloom Timberwolves takes a shot as Santiago Garcia of the Golden Eagles goes for the block in the 2012 Junior Boys Timberwolves Invitational Warm-Up Basketball Tournament Saturday at Charles Bloom.

T-Wolves take two Morning Star Staff

The Charles Bloom junior boys went 2-1 at the Timberwolves Invitational, losing 61-38 to the Similkameen Sparks of Keremeos in Saturday’s hoops final in Lumby. Nine of 11 Similkameen players hit the scoresheet. Top scorers for Bloom were Peter Ufimzeff with 17 and Jared Sexsmith with a dozen. Ken Gatzke’s boys opened with a 43-31 win over the Seaton Sonics. Bloom stormed out to a 28-8 lead early in the second quarter. Nine Bloom players hit the scoresheet, led by Peter Ufimzeff with 17 points. Brett O’Rourke and Jared Sexsmith each sank eight. In their second game, Bloom bounced the short-staffed but very skilled Golden Eagles 47-39. Golden dressed only six players but dropped eight three-pointers and shot more than 75 per cent from the charity stripe. Bloom again formed a balanced attack with eight players knocking down buckets, led again by Ufimzeff with 18 points. Jared Sexsmith again, flushed eight. The VSS Panthers went 3-1 at the KSS Snowy Owl Junior Girls Basketball Classic, dispatching the Immaculata Mustangs of Kelowna

38-23 in their final game Saturday night. Kristy Fugel was named to the All Defensive Team and sank nine points against the Mustangs. Tanner Lorenson and Anna Rice each supplied eight points and Jordyn Cullum had seven. Dayce Knopf earned Defensive MVP. “We are asking for hard work and the team is giving exactly that,” said Cats’ coach Dave Tetrault. “It is nice to see many players improve their play over the past 10 days. The girls are focused on one goal: get better.” Earlier Saturday, the Panthers stopped the Samon Arm Jewels 47-29 behind 10 points from Cullum and eight from Fugel. Jesssica Melvin, Emma Tetrault, Taylor Ostross and Megan Reeves each bagged four. Rice took Defensive MVP. VSS bowed 58-33 to the Mt. Baker Wild of Cranbrook with Rice and Fugel each draining 10 points and Cullum collecting Defensive MVP. Fugel flushed 11 points, including a late-tying free throw in the first overtime, as the Panthers opened by edging the Princess Margaret Mustangs of Penticton 48-47 in double OT. Rice produced 10 points, while Lorensen scored eight and was named Defensive MVP.

The Vernon Coca-Cola Midget Tier 2 Vipers bowed 4-3 to the eventual Castlegar hockey tournament champion Westside Warriors in Sunday morning’s semifinal. Jack Pawsey, Brandon Rysen and Dustin Copeland scored for the Coke crew. Evan Campagnolo was solid in net, only allowing one snipe in the shootout after holding Westside scoreless in the five-minute overtime. Earlier, the Vipers crushed Creston 10-1 with a balanced attack that had goals by nine different players. Lee Springer had 2+1, while Pawsey earned 1+3 and singles also came from Mitchell Lukacs, Jeff Bochon, Copeland, Jordan Rea, Scott Latwat, Conor Payne and Conor Butte-Landsfried. Graham Jones pocketed three assists and Zach Manton two. The Coke boys bowed 7-2 to South Okanagan with Rea bagging both goals. The Home Building Centre Tier 1 Midget Vipers had a tough Banff Academy Tournament. They lost 4-2 to the PAC Saints of Spruce Grove in their opener, getting goals from Jacob Dolinar and Richard Meaney. The Vipers then ran into a red-hot goalie and settled for a 1-1 with the Fort Saskatchewan Traders, Blaine Caton converting from Dolinar. Vernon then gave up six straight goals before falling 6-4 to the Compete Academy of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Chad Thomas was set up by Ryley Booth and Austin Garrington to start the third-period rally. Caton clicked on a beautiful passing exhibition by Matt Halvorson and Dolinar before Logan Geefs rounded out the attack. “We played some fantastic hockey at times in this tournament.” said Vernon head coach Rob Spraggs. “Every team we played spent most of the game in their own end, being forced to ice the puck to relieve the pressure, but when we gave up shots on our net, they were in prime scoring positions.” The Sladen Moore Bantam A Female Lakers stopped the Kamloops Midget A’s 6-0 before falling 5-2 to the Salmon Arm Midgets. Goalie Maya Baker stymied Kamloops for the opening 10 minutes before the Lakers found their legs and had many chances. Mairyn Tucker went end to end and made a nice deke to the backhand to open the scoring. Just 20 seconds later, Olivia Comeau scored on a nice feed from Andie Kaneda. Kaneda scored on her next shift, off a rebound from Paige Chapdelaine. The line of Jenna Fletcher (2), Samantha Head and Ripley Burd (2A) scored twice in the third. Hannah Swift scored her first of the season off a nice pass from Comeau. Against Salmon Arm, which rosters seven Vernon girls, Tucker clicked 30 seconds in, beating Salmon Arm goalie Kylie Assi with a nice backhand deke. Vernon product Hannah Scherck then surprised Lakers’ goalie Bailey Berndt with two quick OP 4pm y SHam - turda O 8 PRurs: to Sa Ho nday Mo

goals. Comeau sniped a snap shot late in the game. The Sladen Moore bunch is in a Calgary tournament this weekend.

Auto Fix Vikings ground Merritt 4-3

The Vernon Bantam Auto Fix Vikings played their most inspired hockey of the year, earning a 4-3 victory over the big and physical Merritt Centennials Saturday in Logan Lake and falling 3-2 to the powerful Revelstoke Grizzlies in Bantam Tier 3 action Sunday. Offence versus Merritt came from Connor Johnston (1+2), Stephane Richard, Brian Ferguson and Liam Hennig, with Logan Imrich chipping in with two assists in support of Conor Webb. Hustling Austin Caldwell potted both goals against Revelstoke. Ethan Huizinga was a rock in net and Pee Wee call-ups Coleton Bilodeau and Dawson Chase filled in nicely for the depleted Vikings, whose home tourney goes this weekend. The North Okanagan Tier 4 Pee Wee Knights went 0-4 in the Penticton Tier 3 Winter Classic, losing 5-4 to the Merritt Centennials in their last game Sunday. Dylan Huber, Wesley Graves, Matt Dolinar and Ryan Desilets handled the Knights’ attack. The Salmon Arm Silvertips outlasted the Knights 8-7 Saturday night with Dolinar (3), Ethan Maarhuis (2), Alex Gilowski and Eli Dwyer getting the goals. The Knights lost 7-1 to the North Vancouver Storm and bowed 10-3 to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in earlier games.

Chiefs hold off Wolfpack in Atom final

The Vernon H&L Glass Wolfpack lost 3-1 to the Coquitlam Chiefs in Sunday’s final of the Salmon Arm Atom Development Tournament at the Shaw Centre. The Wolfpack carried the play but could only get a goal from Ben Imrich on a point shot. Vernon iced the Salmon Arm SilverBacks 7-2 in the semis with Ben King supplying 4+1, Lucas Zubrod netting a pair and Trevor Kennedy getting a single in front of Cayden Hamming. In preliminary action Saturday morning, the Wolfpack tied the Kamloops Ice Hawks 2-2 with King and Zubrod collecting the goals and Tanner Brown getting a couple of helpers. In the afternoon game, Vernon toppled the Kelowna Legends 5-3 as King (2), Logan Chapdelaine, Jacob Green and Kennedy scored and Steel Quiring provided two helpers in support of Tanner Witt. The Valley Wood Venom finished fifth in Salmon Arm by bouncing the Winfield Bruins 8-1 with Coletyn Boyarski pulling the hat trick, Cameron Moger getting 2+2 and singles going to Jacob Boden, Ethan Beliveau and Lochlan O’Keefe. On Saturday, after an 18-0 ambush of Vanderhoof, the Venom fell 6-4 to Chilliwack.

T

Technological advances lead the way

he book, Limits to Growth published in 1972, was authored by a number of academics attempting to forecast world economic growth. One of the statements in the book was that the production of Canadian natural gas would peak by 2001. Today in B.C. alone, there is a 200 year supply of natural gas and in light of the new shale and coal gas reserves in Canada, we are looking at 400 to 500 years of reserves. These academics were off by 400 to 500 years because they could not predict today’s technological advances in tapping oil and gas. Most of us thought that scientific stud-

ies were based on absolutes calculated from trial and error in controlled experiments, or analysis in a common sense framework. Regulations to protect Colin Mayes society and the environment have actually forced companies to use innovation to better explore, refine, transport, and maximize the development of natural gas and oil deposits. If one was to do a study of the industry comparing processes and technology of 20 years ago with today, they would be amazed at the progress that has been achieved. The doom and gloom scientists of the world could better spend their time help-

MP REPORT

ing develop new and better ways to utilize the resources we have on this planet rather than criticize, condemn and attempt to stop that which gives us the modern conveniences of our existence. Yes, it is wise to proceed with caution,

however we have seen amazing things come from advancements in research and innovation. A good illustration of this progression is our healthcare. If one compares health care practices of 30 years ago to today,

the strides taken have revolutionized life. Some examples of this include disease prevention and treatment, transplant technology, and artificial joint replacements. Years ago who would have thought these were possible?

Our government has invested many of your tax dollars into research and development to make life in Canada healthier, more convenient and sustainable. There are no limits to smart growth, which is to say growth that

sustains our environment and social fabric, and increases prosperity. In Canada, our future is bright and we need to hear more of the positive changes that have made life in Canada what it is today.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

A LOT OF LARGE PAGES GIVE VALUE FOR MONEY Perhaps the best value for money is a world championship book. Each offers more than 300 pages packed with deals, photos and information about the various titles up for grabs. This deal, from the 2010 World Women’s Pairs Championship, shows the advantage of playing in a contract with declarer’s hand effectively unknown. The winners were Lynn Deas and Beth Palmer from the United States. This was their first board in the final session. Deas (North) opened two diamonds, showing a weak two-bid in either major. Commonly known

as the Multi, this bid enjoys considerable popularity around the planet, but is permitted in the United States only in major events. Palmer (South) was happy to play in game, so jumped to four clubs, asking her partner to bid the suit below her real suit. In this way, South became the declarer in four spades. (Most pairs declared from the North side, which made the defense much easier. The defenders took one trick in each side suit and, if East led a club, a club ruff.) Against Palmer, West, who had no winning lead, aggressively chose the club king. South won with her ace, cashed her top trumps, then played a diamond to

dummy’s jack. East took her ace and, thinking her partner had the club queen, returned a club. Declarer won with dummy’s jack, drew the last trump, and ran the diamonds, discarding dummy’s heart. Plus 480 was a complete top for Deas and Palmer.

News Final Walk

BC Transit goals off track tom fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government’s ambitious goal to double transit ridership by 2020 is not going to be met at the current rate of growth, auditor general John Doyle reported. Doyle’s audit of BC Transit’s efforts to meet that goal found that since it was set in 2008, ridership increased by 6.9 million by last spring, the latest annual total available. The original target was 9.4 million by that time, and the gap is expected to grow further by 2014-15. The provincial transit plan was unveiled early in 2008 by former premier Gordon Campbell and thentransportation minister Kevin Falcon. Its $14 billion price tag included federal and municipal investment, with SkyTrain and other urban light rail accounting for $10 billion. It included the now-completed Canada line, the Evergreen extension to Coquitlam and another SkyTrain extension to the University of B.C. Rapid bus systems for Kelowna and Victoria were the only parts of the plan outside the Lower Mainland.

Vernon resident Frank Campbell, 88, has used Zellers as his walking track for 30 years, going at least two times a week to get his exercise in a warm climate and slip-free surface. He made his final walk when Zellers closed in November, but plans to take to the new Target when it opens in April 2013.
