Firefighters drop challenge

Some avid hockey players hit the ice for a game on Brewer’s Pond at Silver Star Mountain Resort. The resort is proving popular with outdoor enthusiasts, particularly because of the 205-centimetre snow base.

The battle is over for Okanagan Landing firefighters. The Okanagan Landing Volunteer Firefighters Association says it will no longer challenge the City of Vernon cancelling a service contract and 20 members will retire Feb. 1. “The mayor has made it clear that they won’t meet with us or the public on this. We are facing the reality that we won’t have a contract,” said Todd Montgomery, OKLVFA president. “There’s a lot of anger over the city decision and a lot of sad hearts that the community there will disappear.” The Landing fire hall was formed in 1975 and it has provided firefighting response under contract since the area was annexed into Vernon in 1993. However, last summer, city council decided to not renew the contract and Montgomery to invite the Landing volunteers to join a single command structure based out of the Vernon fire hall. Members of the OKLVFA lobbied council to reconsider its decision. “The city will see overtime costs increase and the need for paid staff will increase,” said Montgomery. “The city model doesn’t support volunteers. City volunteers strictly support the paid (unionized) members. There will be lower service for a higher cost.” In terms of the fire boat, which the association owns, the association may partner with Search and Rescue or contract it out. The city says it has been contacted by 12 Landing firefighters willing to join the new service model. “We’re working with the members who have expressed interest in coming over,” said Keith Green, Vernon fire chief. The city says the contract with the OKLVFA was not renewed as a way of standardizing training and creating efficiencies through a single command structure for both fire halls. “Our priority is to serve our customers,” said Green. “Having everyone on the same team is important. Two separate organizations is not the best model for our community.” Mayor Rob Sawatzky insists the Landing volunteers’ concerns were not ignored but legally the city could not discuss the matter in a public venue. “They were in-camera issues and input from the public could not affect those decisions,” he said. Current and past members of the Okanagan Landing Fire Department will meet for a final photo Jan. 27 at the fire hall.

As for the speaker’s office, it says the issue regarding expense documents has been concluded. “Financial services did request more information and more information was provided,” said Craig James, clerk of the legislative assembly. Since then, Foster has agreed to repay the renovation costs until the Legislature’s term ends in 2013. Scott Anderson, Vernon-Monashee Conservative candidate, says he accepts Foster’s explanation regarding the expenses and Doyle’s letter. “But given his position and given the fact that the letter made the rounds of legislative

Mark Olsen, NDP candidate, is also raising questions about the situation. “I take Eric at his word that he didn’t know about it but why didn’t someone say something to him?” said Olsen. “He should have been asked to avoid any perception of conflict (voting on Doyle remaining as auditor general).”

Driver safety critical around plows richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Motorists are urged to be cautious around heavy equipment plowing local roads and highways. Significant snowfall Monday and Tuesday highlighted the need for vehicles to be careful when coming upon graders and sand trucks. “Don’t pass the plow,” said Rick Kovacvich, operations manager with Argo Road Maintenance. “It’s safer to stay behind the plow because they are clearing the snow for you and they will pull over when possible.” The primary concern is motorists pass-

“It’s safer to stay behind the plow because they are clearing the snow for you.” — Rick Kovacvich

ing plows on the right because that’s the side that snow is pushed out from. “It blasts right through their vehicle,” said Kovacvich. “That can do a lot of damage to a vehicle.” Eight to 15 centimetres of snow blanketed the North Okanagan Monday and there was a similar amount Tuesday. Back-to-back storms created some challenges. “It’s been hectic but

fortunately our equipment was holding up,” said Kovacvich. The primary focus for clearing snow were the highways followed by school bus routes. Secondary roads in the rural areas are cur-

rently being addressed. Many of the problems were on the Trans-Canada Highway between Sorrento and Sicamous. “Transport trucks were stuck. They weren’t chaining up,” said Kovacvich. With the snowfall stopped and the temperature expected to drop to -10 today and Saturday, Argo’s crews are focused on the piles of snow and slush.

CORRECTION NOTICE

“We want to get it off the roads and we hope they will dry off before the weather cools off,” said Kovacvich. Kovacvich admits that some side roads will need considerable attention because of four-foot snow banks. “They are closed in pretty good,” he said. Argo Road Maintenance is responsible for 4,700-lane kilometers in the North Okanagan-Shuswap.

Efforts are underway to protect sensitive habitat in rural Lumby and Cherryville. B.C. Hydro will be asked by the Regional District of North Okanagan and the North Okanagan Parks and Natural Areas Trust to establish a conservation covenant on sites between Wilsey dam and the Shuswap River picnic area. “They are a way of protecting areas of ecological significance,” said Tannis Nelson, RDNO’s community development co-ordinator. “The area is identified as high-value screech owl habitat and habitat for other threatened species.” The sites would continue to be owned by B.C. Hydro but activity that negatively impacts the environment would be restricted. Terms of an agreement can range from limiting development to controlling noxious weeds. The covenant would be monitored to ensure it is being followed. “The regional district would be a secondary partner with NOPNAT being a primary partner,” said Nelson. Hydro would not receive anything from RDNO for agreeing to sign the contract and any future risk would be the responsibility of the Crown corporation. It’s not known if conservation covenants will actually occur along the Shuswap River. “We will approach Hydro and see what they think,” said Nelson.

The to-do list in Coldstream isn’t getting any shorter as a number of projects will be full steam ahead for 2013. Along with the April sports complex referendum, both the Highway 6 realignment and the new mechanic’s shop are expected to be completed before next winter. But perhaps the biggest task at hand will be the review of the district’s official community plan. The last time a review took place was in 2005, and with a number of bylaws dating back 30-plus years, the current council and staff are taking a more thorough look through the plan. One of the items being looked at is density in the rural community. With infrastructure needs, such as new water lines, Mayor Jim Garlick suggests density needs to be increased in certain areas, whether that be through duplexes, townhouses or other options. “What we’re looking at is those already-urbanized areas,” said Garlick. “These are all options and we’re not saying this is the way to go but let’s look at it.” How sewer fees are collected also places demands for increased density in the community. Therefore the status quo versus a truer user pay

“What we’re looking at is those already urbanized areas.” — Jim Garlick

system is something Garlick would like the community to examine by next fall. “A lot of questions have come up around sewer: where does it go next and how do we get it there?” said Garlick. With fewer residents per kilometre of pipeline, Coldstream ends up paying more for sewer than its neighbours such as Vernon. Keeping residents in Coldstream is another priority for the district, as it is lobbying the provincial government and Interior Health Authority for a licensed care facility at Coldstream Meadows on Mackie Drive. “The developer (of Coldstream Meadows) has told us that Coldstream is the largest municipality in B.C. without a licensed care facility,” said Garlick. Another priority area of potential development for Coldstream is Lavington’s former glass plant site. The plant was shut down in 2008 and remained vacant since. “We had a group of investors who wanted to buy it and subdivide it into one-hectare

lots,” said Garlick. But with limited large industrial lands, Coldstream turned down the request. Instead, Coldstream is looking at working with the Regional District of North Okanagan and the City of Vernon’s economic development function to market the prime land. “I’d like to see something light industrial that creates decent jobs,” said Garlick. Another area of development that hasn’t seen much action is the Trintec shopping centre behind the RDNO building. The development is currently in the hands of the Ministry of Transportation, with the entrance and exit off of Highway 6 being examined. “We’re hoping it goes ahead,” said Garlick of the development that he suspects will move forward in phases and could also include a road linking Sarsons Road to Selkirk Drive. One project that did see completion on the commercial end of things is the new gas station on Kalamalka Road.

The Centex station opened in November after the former gas station was shut down for nearly seven years. “It’s a seed,” said Garlick, impressed with how the owners have cleaned the site up. “You need that activity, that commercial activity in the area.” The gas station sits in Coldstream’s planned town centre, where the district would like to see more businesses move into the area. As part of the town centre process, the district is actually changing the municipal hall to the new mixed use zone (commercial and residential), and using it as an exemplary model for potential town centre developers in the future. Garlick assures: “We’re not going to be putting a store in the municipal hall with bunk beds. “All we’re doing is creating an environment it can happen in.” Another project Coldstream will have to look at in 2013 is a parks service, now that the memorandum of understanding for parks has been signed. “We’ll probably look at doing contracting out with the mowing of the grass and those regular maintenance items.” But all in all, Garlick is looking forward to Coldstream having control of its parks. “I think it’s going to be more responsive to the public.”

A year to remember for Armstrong people hoped. It will be great to see Kindale in their new facility. “Not only do they service Armstrong but the entire North Okanagan, and they do a great job.” Pieper said the city will continue to work on major capital works projects in 2013, the first being rolled out in January, and water will be a key topic. “Our water meters should be installed by summer time, so that will give people an opportunity to see how much water they use,” said Piper. “We’ll also continue with our water plan as far as the Fortune Creek Drainage District goes. We’ll see how much water we have and look after it the best possible way we can.” In 2012, some good came out of one of the most unthinkable events a community can face, the murder of one of its children.

Taylor Van Diest was found attacked and left for dead near the railway tracks through town on Halloween Night 2011. She died that night in Kelowna General Hospital. Last year, a suspect was arrested for her murder. And her family spearheaded an effort to create the Taylor Jade Van Diest Memorial Trail. “The murder, as tragic as it was, brought our community together,” said Pieper. “And our community really came together for the family. The culmination with the trail is just one part of it.” Like every other community in the Okanagan, Armstrong is growing. It’s definitely bigger than the 4,000 people that lived there when Pieper attended “the old brick school” (Armstrong Elementary School), which housed students from Grades 1 to 8, and when the city’s

high school was located in Memorial Park. The population of ArmstrongSpallumcheen is around 10,000, and Pieper is

There’s been little movement in the home construction sector. There were 165 housing starts in 2012 in Vernon, up slightly from 163 starts in 2011. Experts believe there is one primary factor as to why there wasn’t much growth. “Vernon’s new home market is facing strong competition from a well-supplied existing home market,” said Paul Fabri, an analyst with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. “A lot of people are turning to existing homes (because of price).”

The other factor impacting construction activity has been the lack of employment growth in the region. Of the 165 starts in Vernon during 2012, 125 were single-detached units while 40 were multiple units. For December, there were 15 starts in Vernon, up from eight during the same month in 2011. CMHC is forecasting a modest increase in Vernon housing starts in 2013. “B.C. is expected to see increased migration into the province and employment growth,” said Fabri. “The number of listings of existing homes is also being drawn down.”

Taking it slowly

ike many people with children, I now look back with admiration, awe even, of all that my mother accomplished. She somehow made it look easy raising three kids, getting a healthy dinner on the table, volunteering at our school and in the community and even squeezing in time for date nights with my dad. I can still remember the scent of her perfume, Je Reviens by Worth, as she got ready for a big night out at The Cave or Isy’s Supper Club, all of us in our jammies and staying home with a babysitter. She was a stay-at-home mom, a role she enjoyed particularly as her own childhood resembled something out of Angela’s Ashes, but she also didn’t Katherine Mortimer lose herself in the role. She still seemed to always be there for us — and this in the days when we came home for lunch every school day, so it wasn’t as though she had a lot of time to herself. When my parents took occasional holidays without us, my grandmother would stay with us. Of course, we hated it when they left us at home, but they took us on plenty of holidays, and it probably saved their sanity, their marriage and made them better parents. As we grew up, Mom began to work on her degree, excelling at her English classes, as well as anthropology and history. It was a deferred dream, as she was young when she and my dad got married and my brother arrived just 11 months later. I have just one child, and I don’t know how she did it all. And I don’t know how others do it. I am always gently accused of being in a rush at all times. And it’s true, I am. I feel as though I’m always running at 300 km/hour, trying to squeeze everything in that I need to do in a day. From making lunch to getting my daughter to school (love those hot lunch days when all I have to pack is a snack), to getting her to dance classes and other activities, it’s a constant scramble. It doesn’t help, probably, that my job involves deadlines and a lot of rushing around. The guilt I feel at only occasionally being able to help out at school is assuaged slightly by the time we spend together. I am very strict with myself about not going out more than one week

AT RANDOM

night Monday to Friday, as I need to have family time. It might have something to do with the fact that I didn’t have children until later in life, so got the partying out of my system all through my 20s and early 30s. As children, we always had an extracurricular activity such as piano lessons or figure skating, but we never had them all at the same time. We seemed to have a better balance between school, after-school activities and free time to simply be. At the end of our street was a huge, wooded area where we played for hours, making up games and coming home covered in mud, tired and happy. Of course, these days most of us wouldn’t let our kids play in the woods without adult supervision or some kind of organized activity involving learning about trees or bark. I suppose it helped that my mom had time when we were at school to take care of the mundane chores such as grocery shopping. I feel as though I no sooner have my child in the car that we’re racing a cart through the grocery store, then racing home to figure out dinner (on the weeks when I haven’t pre-planned, which is most weeks). By the time we’re home, eaten dinner, done some homework and maybe spent a bit of time together, it’s time for bed. Unlike me, who started and quit ballet more times than I can count, my daughter is passionate about all of her activities, whether it’s dance, swimming lessons or skiing. I hate to squash that enthusiasm, but my constantly rushing her from one activity to the next isn’t doing her any good, either. When the weekend rolls around, I am loath to plan anything that starts too early and smacks of week-day rushing. It means we rarely get the first powder of the day at Silver Star, and it means going to church is often put on the back-burner. I want to sit with my coffee, read my book, catch up on the weekend papers and just be until it’s time to leisurely get on with the rest of the day. We are constantly told how important date night is. Frankly, by the end of a day of rushing around, the last thing I want to do is go out. I’m on the phone or e-mail all day, with people dropping in to see me about one thing or another. So when I get home, I want to put on a pair of comfy PJs, pour a glass of wine and just not rush. Of course, if the old supper clubs of the ‘60s were still around, I might make an exception. Until then, I’m more likely to have a date with the cast of Coronation Street.

Okanagan Landing firefighters have raised the white flag, and ultimately that makes sense. No matter how much more lobbying went on, the City of Vernon wasn’t going to renew a service contract with the volunteer association. However, the retirement of most of the Landing firefighters doesn’t mean this is the end of the matter. Because of the current contract ending Feb. 1, Okanagan Landing residents will be experiencing a change in firefighting service, whether real or perceived. To prevent any potential complaints or lingering hardships, the city needs to hold an information session for residents to explain how the new management model — based out of the Vernon fire hall — will operate. Among the details that can be provided are the number of Landing firefighters that have decided to participate under the new structure and the potential role of unionized firefighters at the Landing station. Residents may question if there is a change in response times, how the training of volunteer firefighters may evolve and the ability to fight blazes from the lake as the fire boat is owned by the Okanagan Landing Volunteer Firefighters Association and not the city. City officials may be reluctant to hold a meeting, afraid that it will be dominated by the controversy over the contract cancellation. Obviously details behind council’s decision cannot be provided because of confidentiality legislation, but the prospect of public resentment shouldn’t prevent the city from being transparent and providing information about how the new model will function. And ultimately, city officials must remember that it’s the residents of Vernon that they answer to.

Concerts can be a reality

I

just read the Jan. 2 edition of The Morning Star which mentioned the lack of events in the Wesbild Centre. I am the promoter of the very first concert in the multiplex – Tom Cochrane, Barney Bentall and Spirit of the West for Winter Carnival 2002, and then the Stampeders in a fun-filled, cabaret event, which was to show Rec/Ex and the Regional District of North Okanagan what we/they should be doing in order to bring extra revenue to the multiplex. Along with those, I have also done Bruce Cockburn, Roger Hodgson of Supertramp, Vienna Boys Choir, Amy Sky, Matthew Good, Crash Test Dummies and probably another dozen at the Performing Arts Centre and Vernon Lodge. I also started Suds N' Cider and Pamper your Palate so I feel I should offer my feedback, and with my credentials, I feel qualified. Now, regarding the two concerts I held at the multiplex, I broke even on the first after investing nearly $100,000 and lost money on the second, which my output was about $30,000. Who made money? The regional district. When you sell 30 to 40 kegs of beer per event,150 glasses per keg at $5 per glass, there's $22,500-$30,000 in sales. After I paid for the rental, security, etc,, I walked away with nothing while they made the money. So, if they did this themselves, a couple of things happen. They will make money and there will be events there. In the past, and especially over the past six weeks, I have been in conversation with Wesbild Centre to put a concert in the multiplex. I have been in contact with an agency that is taking bookings for a tour right now featuring Flo and Eddie

pipeline panned This is in response to Cliff Wedgewood's claim in a letter to the editor to not even understand why people oppose the northern B.C. Enbridge pipeline. If the recent pipeline burst in northern Alberta, leaking oil into sensitive land and a river that supports important biodiversity, isn't enough of a reason to oppose a pipeline that stretches across our entire province, then maybe the business aspect will. Wedgewood wonders who will buy our oil if Asian companies don't. Has he considered the pressure it would alleviate from the Canadian economy if we found that we no longer had to import oil and could provide the resource to the Canadian people through Canadian business and control the price of our own oil sands resource? Better yet, we could slow the development of the oil sands to a sustainable pace that does not include the deaths of thousands of animals every year, and when the rest of the world is suffering for oil resources (in 80 to 100 years), our oil sands would amount to liquid gold. But regardless, there is no point in trying to convince these people of the downside to exploiting natural resources without an exit

of the Turtles, Chuck Negron of Three Dog Night, Gary Pucket and the Union Gap and Gary Lewis and the Playboys. I have been also working on bringing back one of the best concerts that I did while working at the Vernon Lodge, Roger Hodgson of Supertramp. There's not much reaction except I will present this to RDNO. That was three weeks ago. Do you want a budget, forecasts, etc.? Talk to me, let's get this going. I really want to do this locally because, as a local businessman myself, I believe in shopping locally and my personal mandate is to be a promoter in Vernon, not Kelowna, where the chances of making money is more realistic. I hear they have been given seed money of $60,000 to assist in promoting concerts. When I questioned them about this, I

plan. There is no point in trying to explain that the B.C. economy is one of the strongest in Canada and the world without new ventures like the Enbridge pipeline. Since when was oil such a strong industry in B.C. that it has the potential to cripple our entire medical and educational systems? Since when were tourism and lumber industries aided by environmental-degrading oil projects? Unfortunately for us, and the future generations of B.C. humans and animals who rely on this pristine landscape for sustenance, some people only pay attention when they hear the cha-ching of dollar signs. Ryan plouffe foReign tRade In his column in this newspaper, our MP for Okanagan-Shuswap suggests Canadians should not be concerned with his government's pending foreign investment promotion and protection agreement with China.

thought seed money means they want to bring in acts on their own and try to make money that way. But it's not for bringing in concerts. It's to help promoters make the down-payment on the act. Then, if and when the promoter sells the tickets, its returned to RDNO and the promoter is on his own once again. Even if he does not make a profit, the money has to be returned to RDNO as soon as the ticket sales reach the money the RDNO outlayed. As a promoter, its not much of an incentive to work with the multiplex. I have always said, that if I win everyone should win but if I lose then everyone should lose. I have suggested several times that I will work for the multiplex at no charge to assist them in bringing concerts here and use that seed money. We will never lose it all and should be able to bring several events here with it. They have a paid person in Penticton, Kelowna and Kamloops that does this and that is why they are getting these concerts. I said that if we make money, then pay me a percent. If nothing is made, pay me nothing. My other suggestion is to open the books for everything and split the costs and profits or loss. What I will not do is take all of the risk in this small market while RDNO makes money. If you want someone to step up, then step up yourself. Let's use that seed money to put on some concerts. Have a look at the total profit and economic benefit for the city and not just the ticket sales and then see whether they should continue on their own or not. At least we are doing something beside sitting and waiting. Bob Sattler

abuse to human and democratic rights and the rule of law. We should not be concerned that Colin Mayes' government is willing to ratify such a lengthy and contentious agreement unilaterally without public debate or consulting with Parliament or the provinces with no other purpose than to assist people in China with no apparent benefit to Canadians here. We should not be concerned that China's state-owned enterprises have been involved in human rights scandals and serious environmental violations both outside of China as well as within their own borders, and yet, the Harper government is still willing to do business with them. We should not be concerned with the fact that our government has paid and will pay hundreds of millions of dollars for trade agreements which allow foreign corporations, including Chinese nationals, under this agreement to sue Canada and those disputes are overseen by tribunals independent of our Canadian court system. Thank you Mr. Mayes for your sage advice. For a moment there, I thought I should be concerned. frank teaporten

It was a year of highs and lows last year for the Vernon School District. Declining enrolment and the province-wide teachers’ job action were tempered by the construction of a brand new Vernon secondary school and an increase in the graduation rate for aboriginal students. The enrolment decline is projected to finally level off around 2019, although board chairperson Bill Turanski said trustees are hopeful that it will be sooner than that. “We have a number of potential challenges coming up, including trying to budget in a time of limited financial resources and ministry ‘downloading’ to districts some of the costs normally funded by the ministry, the possibility of teacher bargaining,” said Turanski. “We also have the issue of student poverty, where children are coming to school hungry. “And we are currently looking at restructuring our secondary schools due to declining enrolment and to accommodate any changes in graduation requirements. The ministry is in the procress of reviewing and possibly developing new graduation requirements. “We have held several public meetings on this

subject in order to determine what parents and the public feel that secondary school programs and educational goals should feel like — what skills do they want their children to have at graduation?” When it comes to job action, Turanski said trustees have learned that a bargaining structure is needed that would reduce or limit the need for teacher job action, yet would avoid having contracts imposed or legislated. “An extended period of disruption from the normal functioning of the school district due to any form of teacher job action has a negative impact on student learning, employee morale and the effective operation of the district,” said Turanski. The district takes particular pride in the new Vernon Secondary School, which he calls a stateof-the-art structure with the latest energy-saving features including geothermal heating and cooling, large windows for solar lighting, energy-saving light fixtures as well as a theatre and workshops for trades. “It will be a source of pride to the students, the school district and the community,” said Turanski. “There is always something exciting and stimulating about new buildings, and VSS will likely become the centrepiece of the school district”

Fulton class earns honours Continued from A10

On the other side of town, Fulton secondary school has received formal recognition from the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education for the work of the school’s global education students who on their annual visits — nine to date — to that country have spent time and resources working at and supporting the Casa Hogar Orphanage. Turanski said there is much to be proud of in the district, from the quality of the student music and drama productions at various schools to the construction of the Kekuli on the Okanagan Indian Reserve, from the success of the district’s early learning and early reading programs, to the work of the district’s administrators and teachers in attending after-school professional development sessions. “The district is currently focusing on improving student numeracy skills, and teachers are receiving professional development to enhance teaching in this area, including in-class demonstrations of teaching techniques. We anticipate a marked improvement in student success in mathematics in the current year.” The district continues to work at improving aboriginal graduation rates. The Aboriginal Education Committee has developed and adopted a strategic plan that includes creating an Aboriginal Enhancement Agreement. “The district’s aboriginal graduation rate is above the provincial average but we will not be content with anything less than 100 per cent. We still have a way to go but we will continue to do everything possible to achieve that goal. What is encouraging is that the rate is increasing almost every year.

“While we tend to focus on graduation as a goal for our aboriginal students, we should also be preparing them for life beyond Grade 12 — graduation is a beginning not an end.” With the popularity of French immersion in the district, there is a real possibility of a shortage of space. The kindergarten program is moving to Alexis Park elementary school in the fall to accommodate more students. “The secondary school restructuring could provide space but that remains to be seen. Last year, there was space to accommodate all students who wanted to register in French immersion and we even had room for several out-of-district students.” And even with the challenges of falling enrolment, cuts to funding and staff cuts, Turanski still feels passionately about public education, a passion that began when he first walked through the doors of his elementary school at six years old. “The educational system is something I know and I enjoy the challenges it can bring,” said Turanski, who was an educator and school administrator for 36 years, 34 years as a principal in this district. “I also enjoy working with people and this district has so many outstanding and dedicated individuals that it is a privilege to meet and work with them in our common goal, which is to provide students with the best education possible. “Our students often have a much different perspective of the world than many adults. They are generally eager, optimistic, enthusiastic and energized. It can become very contagious and many of the adults who work with them exhibit those traits. “As a school trustee, where else can one get a job that offers so much.”

Target eclipsed Morning Star Staff

During 2012, Valley First shattered its 6,500 pound target by collecting more than 19,000 pounds of food for food banks across the Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson valleys. In recognition of its 65th anniversary, Valley First challenged its employees and communities to collect 6,500 pound. The branch that collected the most food would net $6,500 for their local food bank partners. After surpassing that initial target in less than four months with the Valley First Armstrong branch leading the charge collecting 1,950 of food, Valley First re-issued the challenge offering another $6,500 for food collected until the end of the year. The lion’s share of the 19,000 pounds of food donations was collected in Keremeos.

els of norovirus activity attributed to a new strain, that trend doesn’t hold true in this region. “Looking at our data, the number of outbreaks since November are exactly the same as last year. We’re seeing a pretty typical norovirus season,” Larder says. Because people can pick up the norovirus off infected surfaces, disinfecting is important. “A couple of years ago there was a real spate of outbreaks on cruise ships. They had to bring them into port and clean them from top to bottom.” He points out that it’s not too late to get a flu vaccine, and it is currently available from doctors’ offices or the health unit. “It’s still time for immunity to develop. The viruses circulating do match the ones in the vaccine.” And, he emphasizes, “the best way to avoid both of these is really good hand hygiene and really good cough etiquette – use handkerchiefs or cough into the upper arm.” He also stresses: “If you get sick, stay away from work or stay away from school.”

A Lake Country Fire Department member was sent to hospital Tuesday while attempting to provide medical attention on a first response call. The firefighter slipped and injured his knee and was sent to Kelowna General Hospital, according to assistant fire chief Brent Penner. He was expected to undergo surgery Wednesday, but the procedure was postponed and the extent of his injuries remain uncertain. “I guess you could be out shovelling your driveway and have this happen. He just happened to be working,” said Penner. Penner noted that the accident was the result of the firefighter slipping in heavy snowfall. Snow and weather caused a string of accidents Tuesday and, though road conditions did improve Wednesday, slush was still causing problems. Sex and the Kitty

Input sought in Cherryville Morning Star Staff

Cherryville residents are being urged to take an interest in the environment around them. The Cherry Ridge Management Committee will hold a public meeting at the Cherryville Hall Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. “All residents are invited to attend to review our maps and business records, and to provide their input,” said Hank Cameron, with the committee. In 2012, CRMC concentrated its efforts on improving forest health, developing access, planting trees, surveying the land base and make the forest more fire resistant. “The forest health focus of our select harvest was to remove lodgepole pine and Douglas fir bark beetle-killed or infected stems, and windfall,” said Cameron. “We have developed more access trails on our land base using both old trails and new construction. Glenn and Jerry Mazu removed the mountain pine beetle infestation above Joe Lesowski’s farm leaving a cedar/fir mix with a stable set of trails.” The major focus of CRMC’s community advocacy in 2012 was a mudslide. “This matter has not yet been satisfactorily resolved but we have communicated our concerns to the Association of BC Forest Professionals,” said Cameron. “They have prioritized this issue of slope stability and drainage structures on the meeting agenda for their liaison committee with the B.C. Professional Engineers Association.” CRMC silviculture plans are to improve

There may be funding available for community fuel management/fire safety next year.”

Growers visiting China judie steeves Black Press

All facets of the Okanagan’s cherry industry have come together to work on opening up new export markets to local fruit. Okanagan cherry growers and brokers are in China this week in meetings supporting negotiations between the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and their Chinese counterparts to try and break down the barriers to those markets. Christine Dendy, president of the Okanagan-Kootenay Cherry Growers’ Association, says this is a reconnaissance trip so a trade agreement can be reached. She said the association met in mid-December with representatives from the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative, the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association, B.C. Tree Fruits and the 20 or so private packers throughout the valley to discuss working together on cherry trade and research issues. It was a very positive meeting, which resulted in unanimous agreement that growers would form an industry development steering committee which will present the concept of a B.C. cherry council to industry. “We’ve mostly been focussed on research so far, but we need to concentrate on trade issues now,” she noted, and that requires the cooperation of the whole industry,” said Dendy.

Darryl Payeur General Manager at Bannister GM would like to announce the appointment of Kerry Selles to the Bannister GM sales team! Kerry has many years experience in the sales field, and would like to invite all of his previous customers and friends out to visit him today!

“This evolution into a more-proactive industry needs broad support from all players, she said. A cherry council, if approved by the agriculture ministry, would be permitted to collect a levy per acre from all cherry growers in the province, to go toward research, education and marketing efforts. If that is approved by growers, the OKCG would dissolve into it, she said. Dendy estimates there are about 450 cherry growers in the province, mostly in the Okanagan and Similkameen and a few in the Creston area. While many are members of the OKCGA, not all are and membership is voluntary. About 75 per cent of the growers are members of the co-op, but they only represent about 25 per cent of the cherry production. She estimates that the industry is worth about $45 million, but no records have been kept up to now because not all growers pack or ship or deal with trade issues through a single body, up to now. About two-thirds of today’s production is already exported, with half of that making its way to Asian markets. “That needs to be quality fruit that arrives at its destination in good condition, so we can compete with fruit from competitors like Washington State,” said Dendy.

The water stewards, including Larry Arcand, Aline Piche, Doug Becker, Tim and Melanie Staker, continue to sample Cherry and Ferry creeks and the Shuswap River for water quality. “This program has built a superior data base over the last four years,” said Cameron.

Starting Monday, some Lake Country residents will see a change to their collection day while others will see a change to their recycling week. “As a result of the changes, residents will benefit from multiple collection days throughout the week instead of the current Monday collection only,” said Randy Cole, with OK Environmental Waste Systems. “All residents affected by the change will be notified on their current collection day a week to two weeks prior to a change by either a door-knocker attached to their front door or an information packet attached to their cart.” OK Environmental will pick up recycling two weeks in a row in the areas affected by a recycling week change. “After the adjustment your collection will return to the every other week schedule,” said Cole.

College updates mobile app Morning Star Staff

The third version of Okanagan College’s mobile app is now available in both the Apple Store and Android market. Built primarily for student use, the app is free to download and includes a variety of new resources and information for students. “So far we have received a really good response from our students,” said Deborah Matheson, manager of software and support services. “It is great to be able to provide them with the tools they prefer to use in order to connect with some of our most popular services.” The new version includes upgrades such as a direct links to the library’s mobile site, the college’s social media feeds and an enhanced interface. Students can gain quick access to grades, their schedule, ClassFinder, college maps and news. “I thought only the bigger schools had apps and didn’t even think to check for mine,” said Sierra Reeves, a firstyear arts student. “I hope it will help me keep track of my deadlines now that I’ll be using it.” The app is also available in a mobile web version for those who are unable to download and install apps on their device, such as users of a Mac or PC (requires Safari or Chrome).

Viper talent placed on trade block Kevin mitCHeLL Sports Editor

The Vernon Vipers will finish a sorry season without their two best players. While the B.C. Hockey League has a backwards policy whereby teams cannot announce trades until today at 10 a.m., everybody close to the Vipers expected forwards Adam Tambellini and Aaron Hadley to be dealt before Thursday night’s carding deadline. Tambellini, who has a scholarship with the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux for next fall, was believed to be going to the Surrey Eagles. He was in civvies Wednesday night as the Vipers blew a 4-1 lead and lost 5-4 to the Trail Smoke Eaters before 1,500 fans at Wesbild Centre. Rumours circulating around the rink Wednesday first had Tambellini (22-17-39) headed to the Chilliwack Chiefs. Hadley, a Castlegar native who scored a beauty on a nifty move to the net, was also believed bound for a Coastal team, a reward for a superior three-year service to the Vipers. The Western Michigan Bronco-bound winger told team officials he would accept a trade to help better the Vipers for next year’s Royal Bank Cup campaign. Viper captain Brett Corkey, who would be a prize catch for a contender, asked to finish his 20-year-old season in Vernon. The Vipers, who had just one card remaining, will probably get a handful of young prospects in return for Tambellini and Hadley (12-8-20), who are first cousins. Head coach/GM Jason Williamson also had the option of dealing disgruntled centre Pearce Eviston, who left the team last weekend after being benched.

liSa vandErvEldE/Morning Star

mitch mcallister of the vernon vipers dangles past the trail defence with support from call-up morgan Johnston in bCHL action Wednesday night at Wesbild Centre. Vernon’s Tanner Burns, who was leading the Junior B North Okanagan Knights with 23 goals and 34 points, signed with Chilliwack. Meanwhile, emergency call-up Diego Bartlett scored the tying and winning goals as the Smokies stunned the Vipers in a mustwin encounter. The Smokies, who arrived late due to poor road conditions, forcing a 15-minute delay to the opening face-off, reeled off four unanswered third-period goals to move four points ahead of the last-place Vipers in the Interior Division, at 17-22-0-1. Vernon dipped to 12-18-0-7 with three games in hand on Trail.

The Smokies played without their top two snipers – Brett Baltus and Garrett McMullen – both injured. “The wheels just fell off,” sighed Williamson, who met behind closed doors with some players post-game. “I don’t have any explanation or excuses. A couple of turnovers in our own end by some veteran d-men. They feel the pressure of this town and I know they care. Our young guys really stepped up in the first period so they know they can do it.” TJ Dumonceaux pulled the Gordie Howe hat trick for the Vipers, scoring two gorgeous goals, drawing an assist on Liam Board’s

rebound goal and fighting d-man Braden Pears after Pears flipped him like a pretzel with a bizarre hit in Trail territory. Riley McDougall responded on a powerplay goal, with 57 seconds left in the first period, for the Smokies. The Smokies, who are the league’s worst road team, went into comeback mode 1:38 into the third period when Viper d-man Geoff Crisfield giftwrapped a backhand feed to ex-Prince Albert Raider Jesse Knowler just feet away from goalie Danny Todosychuk. Knowler clicked again 20 seconds later on a broken play as the fragile Snakes blew defensive assignments. Bartlett, a Castlegar product who plays Junior B for his hometown Rebels, levelled the score by going roof daddy on a rebound shot from the left side. He buried his second BCHL snipe by going top shelf again, 74 seconds into a tripping penalty by Crisfield in the neutral zone. “They (goals) felt great,” smiled Bartlett, an 18-year-old in his third KIJHL season (20 goals and 37 points this year). “I’ve got a lot of buddies on the other team over there and it feels kind of nice. It was a good night for sure.” Fifth-year d-man Bennett Hambrook, who bear-hugged Vernon’s Ryan Renz in a tussle at the final buzzer, knows Bartlett has moxy. “It was about 45 minutes of him working hard and grinding each shift and he follows it off with a little bit of skill at the end. I’ve known Diego since he was 13 and that’s the kind of kid he’s always been. Willing to go to the hard areas, willing to go where the goals need to be scored.

Ferner ponders coaching future after release from Silvertips Graeme Corbett Morning Star Staff

EvErEtt SilvErtipS photo

mark Ferner works the bench with the WHL everett Silvertips.

Mark Ferner was busy packing up the last of the belongings from his Everett apartment into a U-Haul in preparation for a nasty winter drive to Vernon Thursday morning. With the Coquihalla Highway conditions dicey at best, the 47-year-old Ferner opted for the longer, safer Princeton route. Whether he needed it or not, the extended drive gave him a little more time to digest his release as head coach of the Western Hockey League’s Everett Silvertips earlier this week. Ferner, who guided the BCHL Vernon Vipers to consecutive RBC Cup national Junior A titles in 2009-10, plus a third straight finals appearance a year later, was fired by Everett

GM Garry Davidson after guiding the Tips to a 16-24-0-2 record, last place in the Western Conference. However, Ferner’s departure had less to do with the Silvertips’ standings and more to do with a difference in hockey philosophies with Davidson, who was brought in from the Portland Winterhawks last February to replace Doug Soetart, who hired Ferner. After carving out a 15-year pro career as a stay-at-home defenceman, Ferner, a Buffalo Sabres draft in 1983, employs a defence-first approach, whereas Davidson is known to favour more of an offence-oriented style. “When Doug Soetart was let go and Garry Davidson was brought in...(it’s) in the back of your mind that he’s going to want his own

guys,” said Ferner, who was let go along with assistant coach Chris Hartsburg. “This doesn’t mean we’re bad people, this doesn’t mean we’re bad coaches. It’s just a difference in philosophy. This isn’t going to deter me from doing what I want to do. I will coach again, I’m just not sure when or where.” Ferner, who was in season two of a threeyear contract with Everett, has no immediate plans other than to return to Vernon and spend time with wife Jody and son Mac, who plays Junior B with the North Okanagan Knights. “I’ll come home and get to watch my kid play hockey, which will be a real good thing for me,” said Ferner. “It’s going to be important to spend some family time, but the one thing I do want to do is coach.”

Snakes tank in third period Continued from A21

“We’re sure thankful we called him up tonight.” Hambrook, a former Viper, said the Smokies had heard all the trade rumours, and knew Vernon has had a trying season. “I know things have been rough here,” said the Kimberley product. “It’s a great organization, I know that first-hand. They’re in the process of re-building, they’ve got a big year next year so that’s part of the game and I know their older guys are aware of that.” The ever-improving Michael Roberts, who centered the Vipers’ third line with Dumonceaux and Logan Mick, figured the Snakes simply lost their confidence. “We just got down on ourselves when we shouldn’t have,” said Roberts. “We still had the lead and when they got a few there, I think we panicked and they took advantage of that. It’s a crappy feeling because it’s two points we should have had and it’s just going to be harder to climb the standings now.” Said Corkey: “It’s obviously very disappointing. We felt like we had good control of that game going into the third and we let it slip away. Whether it be kind of not mentally prepared or we just weren’t ready to go that period, I don’t know.” The Smokies, who outshot the Vipers 20-10 in the third, held a 42-33 final shots advantage. Adam Todd, a former Saskatoon Blade, recorded the win. There were four fights with Knights call-up Morgan Johnston winning a decision over Braedan Jones after hammering Jones into the end boards with nine minutes to play. Mat Lambert was also summoned from the Knights, playing alongside Johnston and Mitch McAllister. Logan Mick also scrapped with Jones, while Colton Sparrow of the Vipers took on Austin Adduono in the game’s first tilt, moments after Adduono ran Roberts into the side wall. Vernon entertains the Powell River Kings (15-172-4) Saturday night. Meanwhile, in the other BCHL Wednesday nighter, the host Surrey Eagles got a pair of goals from former West Kelowna Warrior Brett Mulcahy to brush back the Coquitlam Express 6-2 at South Surrey Arena.

Dudes claim Midget title Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Dudes won the 16-team Penticton Midget Rec Hockey Tournament last weekend, grounding the Abbotsford Hawks 5-3 in the final. Kyle Evans opened the offence with a blast from the point, Kristian Currie bagged a pair of goals and Marcus Finn added one to put the Dudes up 4-3 after two periods. After trading chances and powerplays in a fast-paced third period, and with 3:31 left, Lee Brodoway picked off a pass at the blueline and connected on a howitzer top shelf, for insurance. Tournament game MVP awards went to Taylor Hamilton-Gee, Brenden Zupp, Currie and goalies Corey Lehoux and Jared Larsen. “I thought we were a bit rusty in the first game and our timing was off but we got stronger as the tourney wore on,” said Dudes’ coach Darren Zupp. “We had stellar goaltending all weekend from Corey Lehoux and Jared Larsen. Our defence played with grit and our forwards were very creative with the puck. Daryl Brodoway (assistant) and I were very proud of the way the kids played and handled themselves all weekend.” After opening by shutting down the Westside Royals 3-0, bouncing the Chilliwack Bruins 5-2 and stopping the Semiahmoo Ravens of White Rock 6-1 in pool play, the Dudes doubled the Langley Eagles 10-5 in the semis. After opening an early 3-0 lead on goals by Evans, Brenden Zupp and Dallas Zupp, the Eagles clawed back. Garrett Dansereau and Finn also scored, but Langley kept it a close 6-5 game heading into the third period. The Dudes turned on the jets in the final frame and reeled off four unanswered goals by Julian Darkazanli (2), Hamilton-Gee and Dallas Zupp.

Bolts buzz Bulldogs

The Vernon Scotiabank Lightning blasted off a great start to the year with a 6-2 win over the Five Star Awards Bulldogs in North Okanagan Bantam Super Hockey League action Sunday at Civic Arena. The 5-7 Bulldogs struck first with two seconds left in the opening period, but Branden Lehoux zapped one past Five Star Award goalie Rowan Wood to tie the game near the middle mark of the second period. Less than two minutes later, Sam Frisby capitalized on a powerplay to give the Bolts a 2-1 lead. Brett Lambert then slotted home a nice shot five-hole on another Lightning powerplay. The Bulldogs nipped back with Brennan Seltzer’s second of the game, but the Lightning were flying high and bombarded the Bulldogs with a flurry of shots. Jed Halvorson made it 4-2 Bolts before defenceman Ryan Jakes was denied by Wood on a breakaway. Landon Currie and Hayden Varden completed the scoring for the 7-3-1 Lightning. Christopher Nielsen earned his first career hat trick as the DCT Chambers Coyotes zapped North Broadview Plumbing & Heating of Salmon Arm 8-4 Saturday at Priest Valley Arena.

Darnell Hauca of the Vernon Interior Savings Flyers goes down as he battles with Nik Luttmerding of the North Okanagan Knights, in Bantam Super League hockey Saturday at the Civic Arena. Dex Elders pocketed 2+2 as the Coyotes improved to 10-2. Parker Wadsworth had 1+3, Jacob Marshall added 1+2 and sparkplug Riley Bos scored once. Noah Foufoulas and Jacob Holland shared the win.

Flyers ground Knights

The Interior Savings Flyers got a hat trick from Adam Roemer and two goals from Cole Bradley in a 7-0 smothering of the North Okanagan Knights Saturday at Civic. Jake Pelletier and Jaden Steinke, who is having an amazing rookie season, completed the 10-1 Flyers’ attack. Darnell Hauca, Brendan Horsfield, Ryan Lazar, Kendra Ostafie, Keefer Kaempf and Kaylan Lawrence kept the puck moving, while Jakob Alexis, Tiege Doughty, Hauca and Bradley were solid in support of a stellar Garrett Adams.

Devils snuff Flames

Brayden Beacom, Seb Wenger and Finnian O’Keefe each produced 2+1 as the Sub City Donair Devils brushed back the Bannister GM Flames 7-6 Sunday at Priest Valley Arena. Abbey Magnus also scored for the 9-1-1 Devils. Nick Mitchell (2), Aaron Jodoin, Jonas Ramsey, Chase Batchelor and Carly Southam replied for the Flames in what was a re-match of the Vernon tournament final, won by the Flames. In Saturday play, host Winfield #1 Bruins rallied for five unanswered thirdperiod goals in a 5-3 win over the Flames. Keilan Cutting provided three goals in just over three minutes, including the winner with 2:39 left, as the Bruins went to 11-0-1. Alyssa Racine, with her first snipe of the season, Ramsey and Mitchell countered for the Flames. Slick centre Reid Lawrence was a oneman wrecking crew Sunday morning in Winfield, scoring four times as the Stevenson Mechanical Blues bounced the Bruins 4-2 in Pee Wee action. After the Bruins snapped Blues goalie

Dylan Blazek’s shutout streak at 82:10 early in the second period, Lawrence went to work. He scored two goals two minutes apart and then later in the period, stepped out of the penalty box, picked up a loose puck at centre ice, beat a defender and snapped a shot past the Bruins’ goalie. After Winfield cut the lead to one seven minutes into the third period, Lawrence potted his fourth at 8:57, beating a d-man to the outside, cutting in and deking the goalie to slide the puck into an open net. Blazek and Sam Knox were both outstanding as they combined for 37 saves. Lawrence had a goal and two assists Saturday as the Blues dumped the hometown Sicamous Predators 5-2. Keenon Jeberg was the beneficiary of Lawrence’s helpers, crashing the net and burying rebounds off Lawrence’s shots past Sicamous goalie Tyler Kruger. Colton Riguidel, snapping a one-timer from a Cody Webb pass, and Braydie Allen-Webber added the other goals for the Blues, who gave defenceman Angelina Mayer a win on her 13th birthday. Kruger was the best player for the Predators, making a handful of highlightreel glove saves for the 9-2-3 Blues.

Stars battle for draw

The Lumby Stars, sponsored by Kineshanko Logging Ltd. and Terry’s Automotive, battled the North Okanagan Knights to a 3-3 tie and iced the Salmon Arm Titans 5-1 in Pee Wee road games. Josh Litven, on a solo effort, Morgan Holland, assisted by Litven, and Cameron Pryor, on a rebound of a shot from Trayton Phillips, handled the Lumby attack in Armstrong. Stars’ goalie Tage Kineshanko was brilliant, especially during a crazy scramble in the final minute. Stars of the game were Litven and Payton and Kineshanko. In Salmon Arm, Quin Williamson, after a nice pass from linemate Payton Kineshanko, Litven, with a deuce, Kineshanko, from Litven, and Litven, with his hat trick, supplied the Lumby goals.

Maroons mop up Cats Morning Star Staff

Tye Kitzman drained 16 points as the host Fulton Maroons mauled the VSS Panthers 90-49 in North Zone Senior AA Boys Basketball League play Wednesday night. Michael Rouault supplied 14 points and eight assists for the Maroons, while Clayton Mottus also sank 14 and Austin Richardson pocketed a dozen points and rebounds. Chris Inscho, with 14 points, and Matt Forsythe, with 13 points and eight rebounds, paced the Panthers. The game was originally scheduled for the new VSS gym, but switched later in case the gym wasn’t totally ready. Dale Olson’s Maroons get the weekend off before meeting the Princess Margaret Mustangs of Penticton Thursday (3:30 p.m.) to open their 13th annual Maroon Corporate Classic. “We have three ranked teams coming here so it should be good,” said Olson. The No. 3-ranked Duchess Park Condors of Prince George, Pen-Hi Lakers, Westsyde Whundas of Kamloops, South Okanagan Hornets, L.V. Rogers Bombers of Nelson and Sa-Hali Sabres of Kamloops round out the Classic draw. In senior girls play Wednesday night, VSS ambushed Fulton 93-31 with Quinsy Leier collecting 19 points. “It was a great team effort from our girls with five scoring in double figures,” said Panther coach Bobby Mitchell. “After having five or six hard practices over the break, this game was much needed and the girls came out flying right away.” Karly Fugel provided 14 points and 10 boards for the Cats, while Jessica Harvey also rung up 14, Ashtyn McKenzie added 13 and Jenna Marrion earned 11. The Panthers open the MEI Eagles tournament

in Clearbook today against the Claremont Spartans of Victoria. Emma Miller, with 15, and Hana Ouchi, with six, led the Maroons. In Grade 8 girls play Monday, the Panthers roared into 2013 with a 51-14 win over the Len Wood Extreme of Armstrong. The baby Panthers had the honour of being the first team to play in the pristine gym at the brand new VSS. First basket ever in the new Panther Pit was scored by Wynne Kanester, who went on to flush 10 points, matched by teammate Brianna Falk. Top scorer for the Panthers was Reilly Lorenson with 11 points. Maria Durfeld and Victoria Higginson both had several steals, which led to clutch Panther points. The Extreme put up more of a battle than the score would indicate, showing a lot of grit and the Panther win was a real team effort, with some excellent passing and solid defence. The Kalamalka Lakers open their Grade 8 boys tournament today at 2 p.m. against Sa-Hali. Fulton battles Kettle Valley Railway of Penticton at 3:30 p.m., followed by Kal versus McNicoll Park Dragons of Penticton at 5:00, and Fulton versus South Kamloops Titans at 6:30. The playoff round in the six-team tourney begins at noon Saturday, with the final scheduled for 3 p.m. The Charles Bloom Timberwolves senior girls tournament opens today at 2:15 with the T-wolves going up against the Seaton Sonics. The A.L. Fortune Falcons tangle with the Pleasant Valley Saints of Armstrong at 4 p.m., with Bloom battling the Barriere Cougars at 5:45 and Fortune meeting Heritage Christian Saints of Kelowna at 7:30. Seaton plays Barriere at 9 a.m. and PVSS takes on Heritage Christian at 10:45 to jumpstart Saturday play. The final goes at 5 p.m.

Ready-Mix rolling Continued from A22

Matthew Yaremcio was solid in net, getting great support from Payton Kineshanko, Emily Romailler, Vanessa Yaremcio, Jordan Romailler and Trayton Phillips. Cameron Pryor and Morgan Holland hustled out on the solid offensive lines. Stars of the game were Romailler, Litven and Tage Kineshanko. In Atom Super League regularseason play on Saturday, the M&K Ready-Mix Demons upended the Winfield Bruins 10-1 with Shaelyn Cecchini, Christopher Bond, Dawson Martian and Ryan Vandesande each scoring twice and singles going to Gage Stoll and Jordyn Morris, with Kevin Morgan bagging three assists. In other Atom play Sunday at Civic, Denny’s Ice Rockets powered to a 6-1 win over the Lakeside Accuprint Vernon Thunder. The Thunder struck first when Nicolas Petty converted on a breakaway. Rocket Reilly Teager leveled the game with a brilliant effort. Taking a pass from Bradley Halvorson, Teager darted over the Thunder line, cut wide around the defence, and while falling, slipped a backhand shot through the goalie’s pads. The Thunder looked to regain the lead as Nicolas Petty broke in alone once more, but Rocket netminder Eric Foufoulas kept his team square with a timely poke check.

With a minute to go in the first, the Rockets’ line of Teager, Maddex Minard and Quinn Soon applied intense puck pressure in the Thunder zone. Soon pounced on a loose puck in the slot, and snapped the goahead goal upstairs. Sapien Joe extended the Rockets’ lead on a rising shot after a play started by Bradley Halvorson and Derek Pereboom. Early in the third, Joe cleared the puck to Liam Remple who took off on a solo rush up the middle. After some slick moves, Remple notched the Rockets’ fourth, tucking it in on the backhand. Remple created the next goal as well, accepting a Shaun Huizinga pass in the left wing corner and firing it on net. Teager cashed in the loose change to make it 5-1. Late in the final period, Teager sprung Bradley Halvorson. Splitting the D with a burst of speed, Halvorson went glove side, picking the low corner and turning the red light on. In exhibition play, the Demons overtook the Vernon Mighty Ducks 6-2 with Martian pulling the hat trick and Cecchini, Vandesande and Bond providing singles. Ty Louis had two helpers. D-men Vandesande, Stoll, Morgan and Nick Tilby sparkled in front of Kassidy Schaper-Kotter, who made several key stops.

De Vine Vintners began 2013 by snapping a 10-game Baron Insurance Super League losing streak Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club. Skipped by Brianne McLean, the Vintners counted a steal of three in the fourth end en route to a 6-1 win over Robbi Kuhn’s North Enderby Timber to improve to 2-11. The wine crew kept the pressure on in the fifth end by burying a rock on the button. Kuhn (6-7) was unable to dislodge it with a lightweight tap come-around, resulting in handshakes. Mark Longworth’s Sladen Moore erased an early three-point deficit to earn a 6-4 win over Darrell (Heavy D) Houston’s Nufloors. Nufloors (6-7) went up 3-0 in the first end on some solid shooting from third Kelsey Tetlock. Longworth (7-6)

Status ruling ‘beginning of another journey’ dale bass Kamloops This Week

In Deb Canada’s opinion, one conversation has ended and another is about to begin. Canada, a Metis, said a federal court ruling that Metis and non-status Indians are “Indians” under the Constitution Act and fall under federal jurisdiction isn’t the end of the issue. The decision comes after 13 years of legal bat-

tles to clarify the relationship between the federal government and aboriginal people who are not members of reserves. Canada, chief executive officer of the Metis Commission for Children and Families B .C., said caution is required as the Metis and non-status Indians move forward “because this is the beginning of another journey to ensure we are recognized.” In theory, the decision

“I’m not getting my hopes up.” — Deb Canada

should require the federal government to provide the same health care and other benefits aboriginals living on reserves receive. “I’m not getting my hopes up,” Canada said. “It still has such a colonial feel

Ambulance deals with all kinds of requests Morning Star Staff

Last year Emergency Medical Dispatchers at BC Ambulance Service answered more than 394,000 911 calls. While many of those calls involved life-threatening situations, some, however, were not of an urgent nature and did not require an ambulance response. n I think my house is infested with fleas. Can someone check it out? n I can’t get through to my cell provider. Can you help me? n My husband is driving me crazy. I need you to take him away. n I need you to get hold of my doctor for me – the office is closed. n I’m out of beer. n I swallowed toothpaste. I didn’t spit it out. Will it make me sick? n There’s a dead crow in my yard. Could I get West Nile disease from it? n I don’t need an ambulance, but if I do, how much does it cost? n I have a doctor’s appointment in the morning. Could you call me at 8 a.m. so I’m not late?

n What’s the phone number to the hospital nearest to me? BCAS director of dispatch operations Gord Kirk oversees dispatch centres in Vancouver, Victoria and Kamloops, as well as the more than 240 dispatch staff who serve the province. He strongly recommends that 911 calls for ambulance service be used for medical emergencies only. “It’s important to remember that we’re here to help people with emergency medical situations,” he said. “Calls that are inappropriate divert resources from those who need swift medical attention.” BCAS encourages the public to dial 911 for assistance during a medical emergency. Alternatives to calling an ambulance include contacting the 811 telehealth service, accessing a walk-in clinic, making an appointment with a family doctor or visiting a hospital emergency department if necessary.

2013 DOG LICENSE RENEWAL NOTICE Dog licenses for the year 2013 are now available. 2012 licenses expire December 31 and it is the responsibility of the dog owner to obtain a new license before March 15, 2013 in order to avoid fines after that date. Licenses may be purchased at City Hall located at 3570 Bridge Street, or at the Armstrong Veterinary Clinic located at 3125 Smith Drive. Tags purchased at the Vet’s office must be paid by cash or cheque payable to the City of Armstrong. Current annual dog licence fees are as follows: MALE OR FEMALE (UNALTERED)

to it.” She said it was good to have the Metis voices heard — albeit over 13 years — but that the collective voice that resonated with the court does not represent every Metis.

“Some of the Metis don’t see each other as Indian,” she said. “And, for a lot of Metis, we’re fairly new at all of this so I hope that, collectively, with this new development, we can move forward. We just have to be really careful.” Despite the ruling, Canada said often the Metis do not receive the same level of respect from government that other First Nations bands do.

“We have to respect each other’s differences. We have our own beliefs of who we are and who we are not.” The lawsuit was launched by the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, along with Metis and nonstatus Indians, in 1999. The suit alleged discrimination because they were not included in the definition of Indian in a section of the Constitution Act.

Performing arts company takes its next step Vernon’s Rushing Wild has been travelling the world and is home to perform new show Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

It’s been three years since Gloria Perrier and Lydia Rieu last staged a performance in their hometown of Vernon. Since then, the directors of local performing arts company, Rushing Wild, have been spreading their wings and their talents to overseas destinations. Now back in the Okanagan, Rushing Wild is about to premiere its third production, Iconic Stature, in Kelowna on Saturday. Over the last six years, the company has mounted two other original productions, incorporating dance, theatre, music and even spoken word. The first took stages in Toronto, Kelowna, and Vernon, and was even performed at a Tibetan refugee camp in Nepal, where the group spent three weeks doing dance workshops with children of Nepalese and Tibetan communities. The second production, Fragmented Pieces, was performed in Vernon in 2010 and instigated the women’s latest travels abroad, includ-

ing to Paris, France and Zihuatanejo, Mexico. “We always had a passion to do stuff overseas,” said Perrier. “Someone had seen our show in Vernon and said we should bring it to Mexico. We loved working with the local artists there including those from the Dance Institute in Mexico. We also integrated music into our performance and performed in Guadalajara.” Now a registered not-for-profit company with a charitable number, Rushing Wild has plans for its new production, which is described as a compilation of diverse movement, music and drama that embraces mystery and adventure where the invisible crashes into the visible. “We would like to travel with the show around B.C. and North America and would like to do another show at the (Vernon) Performing Arts Centre,” said Perrier, adding Rushing Wild is returning to Mexico next month and is booked to bring Iconic Stature to Lake Country’s Creekside Theatre in May. In the meantime, the production will take the stage at the Mary Irwin Theatre in Kelowna’s Rotary Centre for the Arts  Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. “This is a fundraising event to support the ongoing work of Rushing Wild,” said Perrier, adding donations are welcome. Those wanting to learn more can visit www.rushingwild.ca.

Comics are grateful for the powder as they hit the trail Morning Star Staff

If you think all this snow is ridiculous, wait for what’s in store when the Snowed In Comedy Tour returns to Vernon Thursday. The tour is back for its fifth year at the Performing Arts Centre and once again features snowboarders-by-day and comics-by-night Dan Quinn, Arj Barker, Pete Johansson and Craig Campbell. The foursome, who entertained during the Vernon Winter Carnival last year, are returning to the North Okanagan a little earlier this year as part of a 25-date winter tour that takes them to ski resort towns and cities throughout B.C. Founded by Quinn, winner of the Canadian competition at Just for Laughs,

who has opened for Rob Schneider and Russell Peters and starred in his own comedy special, the Snowed In tour is not only hitting four new cities, including Smithers, Terrace and Prince Rupert, the comics are heading south of the border to Bellingham, Wash. and over to Calgary. “We are also very excited to be moving up in venue sizes at a couple of locations,” said Quinn on Snowed In’s blog. “I hope our killer show last year spreads the word.” Quinn will also be joined by Campbell on the slopes in the Alps for a European tour that takes them to Switzerland in February. The notorious co-host of Canada’s legendary Ed’s Night Party (featuring Ed

elvis Presley – Elvis as Recorded Live at Madison Square Garden

I

t was Elvis Presley’s birthday a few days ago so here’s a look at a re-release of Presley’s classic live 1972 concert recorded on June 10 during a four-show run at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  Presley and his ace band, the best one of his career, recorded two shows in their entirety, included within. He may be at the height Dean Gordon-Smith of his powers here; delivering fiery full-length concerts with a familiar big band that followed his every move. The drive of the pristine James Burton-led ensem-

Street SoundS

ble (including orchestra and back-up singers) whips the songs at a healthy pace.  Presley sounds confident and relaxed, ad libbing jovially (“I’ll be up in a minute, baby!” on Love Me Tender). And there’s no down time – song after song, carried by crowd noise and Presley’s asides.  While you can sense some adulation, the mood is warm, fun and rocking. There are noticeable trademarks of the era that could be dated or annoying – the busy drumming, braying horns and modulations, but they bring period piece charm. The best thing:  they’re not “retro.”  Of course, with Elvis being Elvis, there are some goofy songs (The Impossible Dream, Funny How Time Slips Away, An American Trilogy). The hot numbers are everywhere though, notably Proud Mary, Polk Salad Annie, Suspicious Minds, Hound Dog, That’s All Right, and the medleys. For many, this is THE classic Elvis period; the time where he was reaching the apex of his performing years. This is also the era burned into pop culture consciousness: the sideburns, jumpsuits, capes and karate kicks.  And when Also sprach Zaruthustra pompously introduces the concert with its futuristic space age theme, you can form a picture of The King in your mind in all his tacky magnificence. Then it’s on to rocking fast and furious with That’s All Right, with Presley and band locked in for the night. These introductory moments capture the Presley rock and roll age unintentionally: schtick and soul, glitter and a god-like voice. The best thing about this release is that it brings Presley’s presence from those bygone years to a listener undiluted. It’s a major show, a big gig, from the King. It ends with “Elvis has left the building, thank you and good night”.

Dead in the forest

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D

E

veryone thought all the Sawyers were dead. They were wrong. After cousin Leatherface massacred some hapless teenagers in 1973, the townspeople of Newt, Texas burned the Sawyer home to the ground, with everyone still in it. There were only two survivors, Leatherface himself, who remained in hiding, and an infant girl, who was taken away by some local yokels to be raised up a few states over. Now, years later that girl, Heather (Alexandra Daddario), is grown and has inherited the Sawyer estate from her grandmother. The question is, what else did she inherit? We say, “It’s a little choppy.” TAYLOR: There are a few logistical problems with Texas Chainsaw 3D, all having to do with timelines. So let’s get those out of the way first. To start with, Heather should be 40, not the nubile 20 year old she seems to be. (Sex sells, especially in horror films.) Secondly, the townsfolk who burned down the Sawyer home in 1973 should be elderly now. They’re not. Thirdly, just how old is Granny that she just died this year? However, forgetting all these concerns, the film is still pretty tepid, considering the legend that spawned it and the opportunity making such a film in 3D should have presented. HOWE: You are so picky Mr. Taylor. Do you really think the target audience who are going to watch this are bothered about the finer details? All they want to see is a group of teenagers running about decorating their underwear, getting limbs and other bodily parts removed with a Stihl. TAYLOR: If that is true, they’ll be disappointed. There aren’t any real scares and some of the moments that were meant to be scary became comedy. Leatherface doesn’t chop up too many people and the 3D opportunities are all but wasted. Measured solely as a film (based on

Reel Reviews

Taylor & Howe

a plot of compounding silliness,) the film fails miserably. Sadly, even when measured by the more forgiving scale I set aside for horror films, TC3D still fails. HOWE: There are a few gory moments, and I for one can’t really stomach watching people getting hacked to pieces or lots of blood spraying on to the screen. Yet, saying that, I was able to watch all of Leatherface’s butchery, so to me it fails in that department. TAYLOR: That’s the thing, people who are going to go to a movie like Texas Chainsaw are doing so for a reason, not finding that reason will lead to disappointment. The film isn’t all bad, there we’re a few moments I enjoyed: Leatherface’s pantry was pretty funny and I liked the twist created by the familiar relations between Heather and he. HOWE: Normally movies like these are really bad, but Texas does have a few things going for it. The acting is pretty good. The cast aren’t wooden and there’s no cheesy one liners. — Taylor gives Texas Chainsaw 3D 2 giant plot holes out of 5. — Howe gives it 2.5 large set of keys out of 5. The film is currently showing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Grade 6 students in the Late French immersion program at Harwood elementary school are excited about learning another language.

Journey to bilingualism Rita tedesco

Special to The Morning Star

Did you know that the Vernon School District offers a program called Late French Immersion? This program offers students an opportunity to enter French immersion at a later age. The district’s program is housed at Harwood elementary school and is going into its successful ninth year. The late French immersion program represents a joyful, transformational learning opportunity open to all Grade 6 students in the Vernon School District. Late French immersion at Harwood school allows Grade 6 students the chance to learn to speak, read and write French in just one short year. Students do not need to be able to speak or know any French, nor do their parents for that matter.

LFI students are motivated, hard working and determined learners. All subjects are taught in French in Grade 6 and English is reintroduced in Grade 7. LFI students then go on to Seaton and integrate seamlessly with students from early immersion. Late French immersion is more than just your average language experience. It is a type of learning experience that supercedes the “norm.” Where do you get the chance as a learner to be absorbed into a closeknit community where everyone has chosen to come together for the same goal: learn French, speak French, dream in French? The happiness that emanates from the room in LFI is contagious. We’re a team and a family and we work hard to achieve our goal. That doesn’t mean that we don’t have tough days, because we do. Taking

a risk is hard. But in the end, it is always rewarding. Students feel like they climbed a mountain and the view on the other side is this beautiful, bilingual landscape that we would have missed out on if we hadn’t taken the challenge. It’s so worth it and life changing. A parent information evening will be held on Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Harwood library for parents who wish to learn more about the program. Registration for the program, which takes place on a first come, first served basis, begins Feb. 4 at 9 a.m. at Harwood school. If you have any questions, please forward them to Madame Tedesco at Harwood, 250-542-5385. Rita Tedesco is vice-principal and Grade 6 Late French immersion teacher at Harwood.

Emotional affairs are taking their toll

ear Annie: Two years ago, I caught my husband having an emotional affair with a friend of ours. Even though we went through counseling and he told me he was no longer in contact with her, he lied. He continued to lie for almost a year, even during our counseling sessions. In one session, he tried to blame me for his actions, and after six months, he still refused to take any responsibility for the affair. This whole thing has made me not trust him. I recently saw an e-mail to an ex-girlfriend from high school. He said he wished he had been a better person, and that he would be looking for a woman like her. He says they were just reminiscing about

the past. I believe he is up to his old ways. I know he wouldn’t like it if the tables were turned. Am I wrong to be upset and ready to divorce him? — Disappointed and Heartbroken Dear Disappointed: You aren’t wrong to be upset, but whether or not to divorce him is a more difficult choice. Men often don’t realize how hurtful an emotional affair can be. They don’t understand that it is still a betrayal, and consequently, they don’t always do the necessary work to heal the marriage from what they justify as a harmless flirtation. Right now, your husband cannot be trusted to be faithful or honest. He won’t change unless he recognizes and admits

that his behavior is wrong. Please go back to your counselor on your own and discuss what you can live with, whether you believe your husband will grow up anytime soon, and what the best course of action is for you. Dear Annie: I am part of a family business, and I work from an office in my home. I get dressed for work every day, the same as those who work outside the home. I am as important to our company as everyone else.

If I’m not in my office, I miss phone calls from customers, vendors and employees who have to wait for me to get back to take care of their needs. I have siblings and an elderly mother who all live nearby. Because they think I “don’t work,” I am the one called upon to take Mom to doctor appointments and run errands for her. In addition, I am asked by family and friends to care for children who are home sick or cannot get to their regular child care provider. Taking time from my job puts me behind, and I often have to work evenings and weekends to catch up. These days, more and more people are working from home. Please tell others to be respectful. — Work-at-

ing all the comforts of home behind in order to spend her life serving those in Cambodia, a country still devastated by the genocide in the ‘70s, where nearly 20 per cent of its population was murdered by the Khmer Rouge,” said camp director Sara Bieniada. Vellacott will spend

the first six months getting accustomed to the culture and learning the language. “After that, Jenni will have a clear focus of her role there. At this point, she is hoping to help rehabilitate women and girls who are leaving the sex trade. Cambodia is home to 50,000 to 100,

000 sex trade workers (30 per cent are children),” said Bieniada. The camp runs Jan. 18 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Jan. 19 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. To register or for more information, go to www.crossworldbasketball.com or contact Bieniada at 250308-5918.

Home USA Dear Work: Working from home often gives others the impression that you don’t actually work or that your time isn’t that important. And while it may give you more flexibility with your hours, it is still the same number of hours, which would require working evenings and weekends to make up time spent doing other things during the day. It would help for

you to set boundaries. If you don’t want to babysit little Johnny, say, “So sorry, but I’m working and can’t take

care of him. You’ll have to make other arrangements.” If you say it enough times, they will get it.

“The lofty looks of man,” Isaiah 2:11. God’s righteousness and majesty must remain supreme and His purpose must be fulfilled. His judgements have a 2-fold purpose: 1st bring men to their senses, 2nd rooting out evil. Israel has forsaken God and God was about to forsake them. Moses warned, “They worship the work of their own hands.” When man bows down to man the result is pride and haughtiness. But the day of God comes on everyone that is ‘proud and lofty.’ Isaiah 2:12.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

IS THE SUIT FRIEND OR FOE?

Alfred, Lord Tennyson said, “He makes no friends who never made a foe.” At the bridge table, a suit can be like a friend or foe, often depending on how the suit divides between your other foe, your opponents. How is that relevant to this deal? South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond queen. Since this marks East with the ace, declarer plays low from the dummy at this trick and the next, when West continues the suit. However, East takes the third trick with his ace, then shifts to the club queen. How should South continue? South rebid two spades in case he and his partner

had a better fit there than in hearts. (North could have held five spades and three hearts. To respond one spade with that hand would have been wrong, in particular if South had rebid two clubs or two diamonds. Then North’s preference to two hearts would have shown only a doubleton, and South would have misevaluated the fit.) Having lost three tricks, South needed the trumps to break 3-2. But he also had a potential spade loser. If the missing cards were friends, breaking 3-3, there would not be a problem. But if they were foe, dividing 4-2, declarer would need some luck. South drew two rounds of trumps using dummy’s queen and his ace. Then he

shifted to spades, cashing his ace, crossing to the king, and leading back to his queen. If the suit had been 3-3, declarer would have drawn the last trump and claimed. Here, though, he ruffed his fourth spade on the board, led a club to his ace, removed West’s last heart, and claimed.

COLE, Harry Aylsworth July 10 1937 - December 30 2012

With family by his side, Harry peacefully passed away at home in the loving arms of his wife orothy, of ϱϱ years͘ lso leŌ ͞holding the shop down” are his children Cherie (Guido), David (^herie), ChrisƟne, Dichele (ric) Grandchildren Bradly, Aimee, Andrew, Jason, Bryanna & Janelle Great grandchildren, Kassandra & Kaden Sisters Shirley & Joan and Helper, Ken. Harry was born in Cherry salley, Kntario to Eorma & Durney Cole (deceased). In 1960, Harry packed up his wife & Įrst born child & headed out to the wild west! They landed in a small unknown but very friendly liƩle town in the ast Kootenays called Jaīray. Three children later, Harry worked hard to provide for his growing brood. There he learned all of his construcƟon trades & soon became the local handy ĮdžͲitͲall man & beloved member of the community. With the beauƟful mountainous surroundings, Harry͛s biggest passions became Įshing, geƫng Įre wood, standing on bear guard as we picked huckleberries & hunƟng. In 19ϴ0 Harry moved once again, this Ɵme to Westside Zoad in Vernon in the sunny Okanagan. Years later at the early age of ϰ6, he had his Įrst heart aƩack & was forced into early reƟrement. By this Ɵme Harry had become friends with many people on the ZeservaƟon & his days were never lonely. There was always someone that wanted his companionship & edžperƟse. Of course aŌer a hard day at play, a nice cigar & a good Happy Hour was always welcomed! Harry was a man of few words but when they came out, every word was worth listening to. How we now long for just one word. Harry was a big presence in everyone͛s lives & he is deeply missed already. A celebraƟon of his life will be held at a later date. džpressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at ǁǁǁ͘DLJůƚĞƌŶĂƟǀĞƐ͘ĐĂ.

KOWALCHUK John

We sadly announce John’s sudden passing on the evening of January 3rd, 2013 at his home. He was born in Ontario on July 15th, 1928. John is survived by one son, Jamie, and one granddaughter, Tianna; brothers: George and Pete; sister-inlaw, Florence; sisters: Mary, Polly, Lucy, and Irene; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by one brother, Mom and Dad, and his wife, Pat. John was a genuine, honest, caring, and hard working man who took pride in everything he did and was concerned with everyone around him. He worked for many years in a sawmill and became a saw filer for Crown Zellerbach. He loved his family, fishing and hunting but camping was his passion. John loved his beautiful Lavington and his neat little farm which held his heart and soul. He lived and died where he enjoyed life the most - his home. We will all miss you, Johnny. May you rest in peace. God bless you. The funeral service will be held at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home on Sunday, January 13th, 2013 at 12:00 noon with interment to follow in Pleasant Valley Cemetery.

He served in the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1953 to 1958, and then took over his father’s photography business in Melfort, Saskatchewan where he became a professional photographer. Eventually relocating to Vernon in 1975, Don was a wellknown photographer and businessman, retiring in 1999. Don was actively involved in the community including Rotary and serving on the board of the Vernon Women’s Transition House. He will be forever loved and missed by his loving wife and best friend, Marion Heath; sons, Douglas (Sandra) Heath of Victoria, BC, Garry (Claire) Heath of Tustin, CA; daughter, Lisa-Dawn (Ian) Gillis of Ottawa, ON; and three grandchildren, Cara Heath, Bryan Gillis and Kathryn Gillis. Further cherishing his memory is his sister-in-law, Dorothy Gibbons, brother-inlaw, Donald Gibbons and numerous nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at Knox Presbyterian Church (3701 32 Avenue, Vernon, BC) with Rev, Dr. Teresa Charlton and Rev. Karl Janzen officiating. Those wishing to do so, may make a donation in Don’s memory to North Okanagan Hospice Society (3506 27 Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4). Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.myalternatives.ca Arrangements entrusted to: ALTERNATIVES FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES® Vernon 250-558-0866 & Armstrong 250-546-7237
