Energy echoed through the hallways and stairwells at Vernon Secondary Tuesday as students left the bricks behind and took in their first day at the new school. The bright, spacious building left some students scrambling to find their lockers and homerooms between the three floors and teachers trying to settle in. But overall, smiles beamed as everyone marvelled at the new facility. “It feels like the very first day in September where everybody doesn’t know where their locker is, what their combination number is and there’s also that excitement of something new,” said principal Morris Vardabasso. “The bricks are in the past.” Grade 12 student Melanie Wakutz was instantly impressed as she entered the building Tuesday. “When I walked in I was like, ‘wow,’ it’s huge.” One favourite space in the school is the new gym, big enough to have the bleachers all the way out during a game. “It’s my favourite room in the school,” said Chris Inscho, Grade 11, of the Panther Pit.

Winter storm blankets region richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Brent Campeau and Dave Fortin, of Black and McDonald, clear the walkway in front of the emergency department at Vernon Jubilee Hospital during Monday’s snowstorm.
The North Okanagan is digging out from a blast of winter. Eight to 15 centimetres of snow fell throughout the region Monday. “It was a typical big dump. We get this every winter,” said Doug Lundquist, an Environment Canada meteorologist. Residents were bracing for more Tuesday as a snow warning was issued (possibly up to five centimetres in the valley bottom). The steady snowfall created challenges for motorists Monday. “It hit at the worst possible time in the morning at rush hour,” said James Rice, City of Vernon public works manager. “The guys are working hard and doing a good job.” There were four reported weatherrelated accidents between 7:30 a.m. and noon Monday. It takes about 36 hours to clear roads in Vernon but if back-to-back snowfall occurs, secondary routes are left and the priority becomes main roads. “If we get snowfall in that period, we get behind,” said Rice. Plows revved up in Spallumcheen before 5 a.m. Monday and they wrapped up at about 7 p.m. “The roads are looking pretty good,” said Ed Forslund, the township’s public works manager. “The crews were going at it pretty hard.” It was a team effort at Vernon Jubilee Hospital to keep sidewalks free of snow Monday. “We usually hire a snow removal crew but because of the severe weather all hands are on deck,” said Dave Fortin with Black and McDonald, which provides facilities maintenance at VJH.
At Silver Star Mountain Resort, there was 16 centimetres of new snow as of Tuesday, bringing the total base to 184 centimetres. “It’s been exciting for us,” said Robin Baycroft, resort services manager. “The skiing is fantastic right now.” Baycroft expects the high-quality powder will be a major draw for local residents as well as visitors to the North Okanagan. “We are way ahead of where we were last year with snow,” he said. “It’s coming and coming which is great.” The weather is expected to warm up today (+3) with a chance of flurries or rain in the morning and then cool off in the evening. Environment Canada is forecasting a high of -1 and a low of -6 Thursday, and a high of -4 and a low of -10 Friday and Saturday. “It will feel colder than we’ve had but it’s better than we could get at this time of the year,” said Lundquist, adding that -20 isn’t unusual in the winter. The average high is -1 and the low is -6. On Sunday, the forecast calls for a daytime high of -1 and an overnight low of -5.

drug bust in the province’s history. On Nov. 30, 2012, Court of Queen’s Bench Justice T.J. Keene sentenced Brock Ernest Palfrey to 18 years less time served after Palfrey pleaded guilty to seven counts, and sentenced Troy Ernest Swanson to 11 years in prison, less time served, after Swanson pleaded guilty to two counts. Palfrey pleaded guilty to three counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, one count of conspiracy to traffic in a controlled substance, one count of instructing commission of an offence for a crim-
inal organization and two counts of failing to comply with conditions. Swanson pleaded guilty to one count of unlawfully importing cocaine into Canada and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Both were arrested in October 2011 in the North Okanagan. Crown is appealing both sentences on the grounds that neither is a fit sentence. In Palfrey’s case, Crown is arguing his sentence “did not reflect the gravity of the offences, many of which were committed while the respondent was on bail or remand,” and the sentence “adversely affects public confidence in the administration of justice.” Crown also believes the judge erred in relation to the required consecutive sentence pursuant to the Criminal Code of Canada. They’re also appealing on the grounds the judge failed to make parole ineligible for Palfrey. In Swanson’s matter, Crown also believes the sentence does not reflect the gravity and number of offences. The appeals were filed shortly before Christmas. No date for hearing the appeals has been set.

Infrastructure focus of Lumby budget plan RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Lumby officials insist that taxes must climb to prepare for the future.

lage has been able to hold operating expenditures stable for the last two years while maintaining levels of service without tax increases. “The only increases council has implemented have been to reserve for asset replacement,” he said. If the 2013 budget is adopted as is, the average home may see a $23.24 increase in taxes. Mayor Kevin Acton is pleased with the budget process. “Staff did a great jo and went through the budget with a finetooth comb. If we didn’t put money into reserves, there would be
a decrease in taxes,” he said. However, given the condition of infrastructure, Acton says a tax decrease “would be completely irresponsible.” Mindnich admits that many residents are experiencing financial challenges but a certain level of funding is required to protect the community’s assets. “Residents understand that we have to save money to do infrastructure. We need the sewer to work and the roads to work,” she said. “There are no bells and whistles with this one (budget).”

It’s still not known if North Okanagan farmers will gain the ability to slaughter and sell meat. Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick met with Patrick Nicol, Regional District of North Okanagan chairperson, Saturday to discuss local demands for D and E meat processing licenses. “He told me where the process is,” said Nicol. “He will be taking a recommendation to the (provincial) cabinet in the next two or three weeks.” No details on what Letnick may recommend to cabinet Patrick Nicol were provided and Nicol doesn’t have a sense if licenses will be granted. “It’s pretty difficult to know but I couldn’t believe there wouldn’t be a change,” he said. “To the minister’s credit, he’s been the only one willing to take up a possible change in the regulations.” The number of local producers has gone from 1,200 to 300 since meat processing regulations came into force in 2007. RDNO directors recently demanded that the provincial government initiate class D and E slaughter licences so farm-gate sales can occur locally. During the one-hour meeting, Nicol presented Letnick with a 500-name petition that calls for licenses. “For our citizens and farm families, this has been a completely failed policy,” said Nicol. “It has had a devastating impact on farm families. There has been no opportunity to expand their economic opportunities.”

t wasn’t unusual for me to be at Coldstream council meetings, but one night in 1990 or 1991, I was extremely ill. At some point, things got the best of me and I must have laid my head down on the table. The next thing I remembered was hearing a loud bang. I opened my eyes, looked ahead and there was Ernie Palfrey, with gavel in hand, saying, “Well, at least we woke him up.” The ironic part was that Ernie had been accused occasionally of nodding off in the mayor’s chair himself. I felt a bond with Coldstream’s mayor of the day from the first time I met him. Perhaps it was because we both had deep Okanagan roots and had changed orchard sprinklers and lugged bags full of apples. It may also have Richard Rolke been because he was who he was — gruff and not afraid to speak his mind (a departure from today’s sanitized, politically correct version of politics). But not everyone was fond of Ernie and that was clear in 1991 when council asked the government to investigate allegations that Palfrey breached his oath of office. Among the claims were that he connected his property to sewer without permission and municipal equipment plowed his driveway. While the investigation was underway, Ernie was removed from all committees. Ernie, who provided explanations for all of the allegations, felt betrayed. “I’m not leaving, I’m staying,” he said. But while council may have lost confidence in Ernie, many residents had not. I remember standing outside of the municipal office as a large crowd gathered. They were seething over what they considered an attempted coup. “They are crucifying the guy,” said resident Nelson Anderson at the time. “We are the ones who voted for him, not
BEyond thE hEAdlinES
these guys. He’s our mayor,” added Jamie Kidston. Ultimately, the conflict between Palfrey and council was resolved (details have never been released), he remained as mayor and, in fact, went on to hold the job until he lost the election in 1996. Many found themselves drawn to Palfrey’s broad smile and down-home charisma. It wasn’t unusual to find people gathered around him at special events or in the coffee shop as he regaled them with stories of Coldstream’s early days. My last interview with Palfrey was in 2010 when the community gathered at the old Coldstream Elementary before it made way for a new school. “We had lots of fun in the basement. In the winter, we’d go down and toast sandwiches on the wood furnace,” said Palfrey, who started Grade 1 in 1934. “We played marbles and got into soccer. We’d often play against Mackie School.” For my own family, our memories include going to Ernie’s farm to get fresh-squeezed apple juice in the fall. My then little girls would explore the orchard while the former mayor and I discussed the crop, the weather and, inevitably, the political scene. Ernie was tied to the farm he had known his whole life and that was never more evident then when he had three six-week-old calves killed by dogs in 2001. “When I find one dead calf and it’s been bitten by dogs, I’m a pretty upset man,” he said, fighting back a mixture of anger and tears. I didn’t always agree with Ernie’s political views but that’s to be expected with anyone. What I did, though, was have tremendous respect for him as a person. When many people only sit on the sidelines, he took a stand and was an active member of society, whether as a volunteer firefighter or by sitting on council. But what I will miss most is a genuine character who loved being around people and sharing his unending pride in his community.
MLA Eric Foster and other members of a legislative committee are unwilling to comment on why auditor general John Doyle has not been signed to a second term as financial watchdog. “It’s in-camera because it’s a personnel issue so I can’t discuss the matter,” said Foster, committee chairperson. But, quite frankly, that response isn’t good enough. Doyle received unanimous support when he was first hired in 2005 and he has been diligent in promoting best practises when taxpayers’ dollars are spent. All MLAs must remember that the auditor general is there to represent the financial interests of rank-and-file British Columbians and not to represent a particular political philosophy. If there is to be a change, such as not renewing a contract, the public deserves an explanation. Without details being provided, speculation takes root. In this case, opposition parties claim the Liberals are trying to silence Doyle, who has frequently criticized government actions. Among his issues of focus were B.C. Hydro debt and the impact of pine beetle on forestry. Doyle has also pursued defence lawyer billings for two former ministerial aides whose $6 million legal costs were covered by taxpayers in a breach of trust case. With the committee refusing to be accountable, the only explanation left for the public to consider is politics motivated Doyle being shown the door. Foster says there is no precedent for the committee to reconsider its decision, but nothing in the rule book says it can’t occur. There is nothing wrong with admitting a mistake may have been made, and ultimately, reconvening the committee for sober second-thought would clearly demonstrate the public’s business is being served.

Investing in our community
n response to Gabe Siska's letter to the editor in The Morning Star. There was a reference to, “another half-dozen more ball fields because Funtastic is getting more popular." He is correct that Funtastic is popular and continues to sell out each year. However, the Funtastic Sports Society is at capacity and has not requested additional ball diamonds be constructed. While the society does support sport and recreation facilities and has done so to the tune of more than $1 million in financial support in the past 20 years, we would prefer to see a long-term facility plan that meets the needs of our community today and in the future. In addition, the society supports all sport and recreation activities in the community, not just slo-pitch or ball fields. In the past four years, the Funtastic Sports Society has provided $100,000 in funding to 29 different not-forprofit organizations to support their sport and recreation initiatives. We will be providing an additional $29,000 through the 2013 Funtastic community grant program to support local non-profit organizations. It is much deeper than dollars though. The Funtastic Sports Society believes that sports and recreation is not a luxury. Sports and recreation is not about winning and should not be lobbied. It’s about helping to build stronger, healthier, happier, and safer communities. We recognize there needs to be consideration to the investment of facilities and a measurable return on the investment for our community, specifically residents. We also believe there needs to be transparency as part of this long-term strategy. Residents need to be comfortable that their tax dollars are being invested for the bet-
terment of the community. We also recognize the need for an unbiased, accurate assessment of the facilities we currently own and what the facility landscape will need to look like in the future. Communities across B.C., Canada and the world recognize the contribution sports and recreation makes to the building of community pride, and the value of recreation in community health, including the additional benefits these activities bring to society. Do we? Sports and recreation has long been part of the fabric of communities. When you take a look around our wonderful beaches and waterways, our parks, centres and sport fields, it is obvious sport and recreation is a passion. From cycling, jogging or walking our high-quality recreational trails, playing football in the schoolyard, sports binds and builds communities, empowers, inspires and motivates individuals, provides worklife balance and helps shape our community character. Sports and recreation play an important role in society and contributes to our lives in many ways we often don’t realize; the not-so-obvious benefits that sports and recreation provides. Investing in sports and recreation helps to build communities through social inclusion and a sense of connection. Sports and recreation
wesbild events Re: Jim Garlick's comments about not enough happening at Wesbild, Morning Star Jan 2. He says Vernon is halfway between Kamloops and Kelowna. Things don't just turn out. You keep an eye on things and make sure what
helps to bind families through shared experiences and shared achievements. Through participation, sports helps address anti-social behaviour and can support education. We see examples of this every day through the amazing volunteer work at the community sport level. Participation in sports helps young residents of our community gain confidence, learn respect and teamwork; attributes they will be able to take with them as they enter the workforce. Sports contributes to economic growth through business investment and employment. The annual Funtastic Summer Festival alone generates more than $4.5 million in direct economic benefit to our business community. As for the investment, if you consider a typical Canadian 10-year-old growing today, there is a two-in-five chance he or she doesn’t take part in any sport and recreation at all. By age 10, that child may be one of the 37 per cent in their group who does not get 60 minutes of daily physical activity. Major sporting events and competitions also generate employment, infrastructure investment and attract thousands of visitors to the region every year. To attract business investment, sports and recreation is vital as companies place a significant emphasis when considering a location for their employees.
you want to happen, happens. What that has to do with Vernon being proactive in attracting major events is beyond comprehension. In the mid 1980s, Kamloops made a decision to make their city more attractive and become a major stopping place for events and concerts.

Investment in sports facilities can bolster a community’s perception of their area, restoring pride in their region and improving future social and economic possibilities. Cities use major sporting events to redefine their image, promote urban development and fund economic growth and regeneration. Take for instance, Kamloops with a very strong brand as Tournament Capital of Canada. The economic and social impact for Kamloops has been phenomenal and continues to be. The Funtastic Sports Society is a strong advocate of sports and recreation in our community. As per our constitution, we do support the building of new sports and reaction facilities; replacing outdated or inefficient facilities. Society is ultimately poorer without sports and recreational activities, yet their true value is perhaps not fully recognized, appreciated or understood. Picture our region without sports and recreation. How strong would our sense of community be? What would our health be like? What would our environment look like? What would we do for enjoyment, to challenge ourselves, to excel, to achieve? Sports and recreation does matter to all of us. It is something that can play a key role in developing and sustaining the community in which we live. Rather than looking at it as just a cost, let’s look at it as an investment in our people, our community, our youth, our health and in general, our longterm viability. It is an activity for all and one that benefits all. Jim Mcewan, executive director Funtastic sports society
They went to work at it and made it happen Saskatoon, Sask. did the same thing. Vernon's location is amazing. It's the planners and organizers who seem to be a little timid in making decisions that would benefit the North Okanagan. iris Youngberg
thank You I stopped with some friends for a cup of coffee and a visit at the Tim Hortons at the north end of Vernon Dec. 7. We were still talking when we left and I left my purse hanging on the back of the chair. My heart almost stopped when I realized what had happened a few blocks down the road, and we quickly returned. To my great relief, someone had turned my purse in and I would like to express my heartfelt thanks for your kindness. name withheld

Wildfire measures proposed for Silver Star RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Steps are being taken now to minimize the risk of wildfire during the long, hot summer. The Regional District of North Okanagan is seeking a grant from the Union of
B.C. Municipalities for fuel treatment for Silver Star Mountain. â€œAnything we can do to look at fuel management is good news,â€? said Mike Macnabb, BX-Silver Star director. â€œWe have had some significant potentials
â€œWe have had significant potentials.â€?
â€” Mike Macnabb (fires) before. We need to reduce the fuel load.â€?
Under the proposal, trees would be trimmed
and underbrush would be cleared. â€œIf we remove the fuel load, the intensity of a fire will be reduced,â€? said Macnabb. Silver Star and the BX are the site of significant financial investment in terms of resi-
dential and commercial properties. While there are two fire departments, fire hydrants do not exist in many cases. â€œThe first line of defence is precautionary,â€? said Macnabb of the need to reduce the fuel that can feed a wildfire. The Silver Star fuel
treatment project would cost about $85,000, with RDNO providing $8.500 and the remainder coming from UBCM. â€œA fuel treatment prescription was completed for Silver Star in late November 2011,â€? said Ron Baker, RDNOâ€™s community and protective services manager.
Real estate activity steady Morning Star Staff
Real estate activity in the North Okanagan remained strong in 2012. From January to December, overall sales improving by 8.6 per cent compared to the same period in 2011 (from 1,345 at $464.3 million to 1,461 units valued at $484.9 million). â€œThe year ended fairly positively,â€? said Rob Shaw, Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board president. â€œWhile many markets in the province were sluggish, OMREB saw strong gains most of the year and did not see declines until the last couple of months.â€? Total residential sales at yearâ€?end were up 10.2 per cent Rob Shaw over 2011. Compared to 2011, single-family residential sales showed the greatest improvement (up 18.7 per cent), with townhouses close behind at 14.6 per cent. Overall sales for December in the North Okanagan dropped 21.5 per cent to 62 units valued at $21.2 million from 79 at $26.9 million in 2011. Total residential sales for the month were down 27.5 per cent over 2011 â€” to 50 units valued at $16.3 million versus 69 at $22.4 million. Single-family home sales slipped 20 per cent to 28 units compared to 35 in 2011.

MG3 use guitars as weapon of choice Master musicians go beyond the realm of classical for their Montréal-style mash up Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff
To a guitarist, the movie scores of Ennio Morricone are pure manna. Think of the lulling beauty to the theme of Cinema Paradiso, or the whistle along guitar folk to A Fistful of Dollars. Then there’s the score to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, so marvelously covered by a ukulele orchestra out of Great Britain. For the members of the Montréal Guitar Trio (MG3), not only have they bonded over those Sergio Leone shoot-‘em-up-and-leave‘em-bleeding spaghetti westerns, often starring Clint Eastwood, they love to perform the famous music from them — and not in your typical manner. The group, which is about to come to Vernon for the third performance of the North Okanagan Community Concert season, Jan. 18, not only plays a mash up of The Good, The Bad and Ugly with the Mattawa reel, it brings a load of different genres —from classical to Latin gypsy to Québec traditional— to all the songs it performs. “Spaghetti western themes are a big influence in our music. It’s inspiring music almost like a character. Everyone likes the music and even eight, nine and 10 years olds know the reference. It’s a living piece of art, the music itself,” said MG3 member Sébastien Dufour, from his home in Montréal. Meeting 15 years ago while studying classical guitar at the Université de Montréal, Dufour, Glenn Lévesque and Marc Morin have evolved from being strictly classical musicians to combining their styles, interests and talents. “We started as classical musicians but because of our wide interests in music, our style and growth changed. Now we play what could be best described as world music,” said Dufour. Morin is not only a master on the guitar, he plays accordion and bass. Lévesque is a Beatles fan and also a vocalist. (His version of George Harrison’s While My Guitar Gently Weeps can be heard on MG3’s latest album.) Dufour’s influences include the music of Bali and well as Spanish Flamenco. He plays dobro along with other string instruments and was also a founding member of Québec’s
montréal Guitar trio’s Glenn Lévesque, marc morin and sébastien Dufour get their fingers wrapped around some impressive chords when they perform for the third north okanagan Community Concert at the Vernon Performing arts Centre on Jan. 18. Le Vent du Nord. “We’re not restrained to just the guitar, but our original show started with what you can do with three guitars,” said Dufour. “Together we take our interests and traditional backgrounds and arrange the music. It’s always a surprise how far it’s going to go. One moment the music may be in the rock style, then it can go from folk to reggae to samba from Brazil. It’s the buzz and energy that makes it a brand, new style.” The trio is also about varying its sound by incorporating techniques into its performances such as different tunings so that the instrument sounds like an Arabian oud or Indian sitar or tapping the guitar to sound like an Indian tabla or a cajón used in Flamenco and Brazilian music. Other “tricks” include using a piece of metal on the strings.
“It sounds close to a gong,” said Dufour. That melding of styles and techniques has won the trio numerous fans from around the world as well as the 2011 Opus Prize for concert of the year in the jazz/world music category. Those varied sounds have also translated to the trio’s four recordings including their latest Cambria. A new album, expected to be released in the fall of this year, features all original arrangements. “From the beginning to now it’s all been about experimental. Before we played half of other people’s arrangements and half our own,” said Dufour. “It’s already original music in that the mix and style comes naturally when we do our crossover thing. We don’t try to force it in. If the influence comes in, we let it. We try not to restrain ourselves although we are all classically trained.”
And for purists who prefer Andrés Segovia over Paco de Lucia, MG3 still plays some classical repertoire, but of course, they put their own spin on it. (Mozart’s The Barber of Seville is just one example.) “I am glad we learned the discipline and technique of classical. It was not an easy step for us... Playing classical theory to all those other styles is a hard switch because it’s not the same audience, but we do classical festivals, along with jazz and folk. We do it for the love of music,” said Dufour. And they always pay ode to their hometown. Montréal is in their name after all. (And for those who Google MG3, the band is definitely not named after the German machine gun.) “It comes from the classical to put the city of where you come from in your name, but it puts a lot of pressure on us, especially when we play Montréal. You have to earn the right to have the name,” said Dufour. “The main reason is for the identity. People know exactly who we are as 90 per cent of our touring is outside of Québec. Even when we go to remote places, like New Zealand or Australia, we will get a few people from Québec showing up because of the name.” The group has also been known to team up with three other guitarists from the California Guitar Trio, whom they met a few years back. In fact, MG3 will be touring with the American trio after their four-date visit to B.C., with shows in California, Texas and Florida. “We have performed with them as a sextet before. They play in a progressive rock style. The only thing we have in common is that we all play guitar as our styles are so different, but it makes for a very fun show,” said Dufour. MG3 takes the stage at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Jan. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Single concert tickets are available from the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca. Cost is $35 for adults, $17.50 for those under 18, or $5 for students on the eyeGo program. Pro-rated season tickets or tickets for out of town guests are also available. The North Okanagan Community Concert Association is also hosting a special fundraiser Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. An Evening with Bramwell Tovey features the renowned pianist, composer and conductor of the Vancouver Symphony. The concert is not part of the regular NOCCA season and requires a special ticket and new seat selection. Tickets are $40 for adults ($30 for NOCCA season ticket holders), $20 for those under 18 and $5 for students on eyeGo now available at the Ticket Seller box office.

Jazz club gets into the groove Salmon Armenians start the new year with some straight up R&B DVOIRA YANOVSKY For The Morning Star
High octane R&B masters The Salmon Armenians return once more to rock the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. The Okanagan Music Award’s Best Blues Band of 2007 promises another evening of up-tempo tunes. “We’ll be playing our usual eclectic mix of R&B, soul, funk, and original material. We love the music of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the classic soul of Motown and Atlantic Records,” said band leader Lody Kieken. Horn fans can expect their usual helping of the Armenians patented horn highlights. “Most of our songs have been chosen because of the arrangements and especially the horn lines so we can feature our talented Salmon Armenian horn section both individually and collectively,” said Kieken. The band also features exciting new original tunes. “Our originals were recorded at Snow Country Lodge in Sun Peaks where we go annually to recharge our batteries and come up with new material,” said Kieken. New tunes include songs by vocalist Debbie Reid, including Come On, offering her new grandson life-advice, and You Taught Me, a tribute of support and friendship to her partner. Hammond organist

The Salmon Armenians’ Peter Clark (front from left), Debbie Reid, Del Hunter, Murray Holmes, Rich Thorne (back from left), Doug Sonju, Larry Keats, Lody Kieken and Mike Scharf make their annual pilgrimage to the Vernon Jazz Club on Saturday. Kieken, owner of Acorn Music in Salmon Arm, formed the band in 1997. “The group got started as a jam band,” said Kieken. “Really, it was an excuse to get together and play through some charts involving a horn section and the music we all loved from the ‘60s and ‘70s.” Principal clarinetist with the Okanagan Symphony, Doug Sonju plays alto and tenor sax for band, which is his other permanent gig. “I don’t play in any other bands on a regular basis. One recent highlight was the November sextet performance at the VJC with Larry Crawford and Sandy Cameron,” said Sonju. Rich Thorne and Mike Scharf flesh out the rest of the horn section. Thorne plays trombone and trumpet while Scharf adds tenor and baritone
sax. Known for her work with The Phantoms, Salmon Arm’s most versatile party band, vocalist Reid enjoys being a part of the band. “I love playing music with the Salmon Armenians,” said Reid. “We always manage to keep it fresh and energetic. It’s the only band I’m singing with at the moment – it keeps me busy enough!” Del Hunter has been singing professionally since 1974. Since 1992 she has also performed in the duo Stepping’ Out with her husband Keith Hunter. “The Salmon Armenians are always fun to perform with and it’s a treat to have the live horns backing us up,” said Del. Bassist and vocalist Murray Holmes has played professionally for many years in bands like Duster, Ambush, and
Blacksmith. “Without a doubt, my 2012 musical highlight was the 20th annual Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival,” said Holmes. Drummer “Slammin’ Salmon” Larry Keats is an original member of the band. He also performs in a Celtic duo with Peter Clark and a country rock group called the Rhythm Ryders. Guitarist Jordan Dick studied jazz at Mohawk College. Dick also performs with the Cuban quintet Babalu, which will be appearing at the VJC in May. The Salmon Armenians take the stage at the Vernon Jazz Club. 3000-31st St., Saturday at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. and tickets are $20, available in advance at the Bean Scene and Bean to Cup coffee houses and online at www.vernonjazzclub.ca.

Success stories continue Our Kids Have Talent is accepting applications
Morning Star Staff
Our Kids Have Talent is gearing up for its fifth successful season. Any musicallyinclined youth ages eight to 18 are asked to get their applications in for the Okanagan-based talent contest, which is supported by the non-profit North Okanagan Music Festival Society. “We’ve had over 500 kids enter the past five years. Many of them haven’t seen a mic before and suddenly there they are in the top 10 and it’s such as surprise to them,” said OKHT founder and organizer Kath Raeber. “Many of our entrants have pursued careers because of OKHT.” Some of those past finalists include Sean “Blues Puppy” Riquelme who was 14 when he won second prize at OKHT in 2011. “That same year, Buddy Guy was playing in Kelowna and he handed-picked Sean to open for him,” said Raeber. Other OKHT past finalists who have done well include Vernonbased boogie-blues pianist Brandon Schmor, who played at the opening ceremonies for
the 2012 B.C. Winter Games; singer-songwriter Beamer Wigley, now nine, who recently went on tour performing 10 gigs in 15 days, and opened for country star Shane Yellowbird; and 2010 winners Sam and Luke, who recorded an album in Nashville with Colin Linden. And the stories continue as Vernon’s Matt Harwood-Jones, who placed in the top 10 in 2010, recently saw his drumming cover of Gangham Style go viral on YouTube. “Another one of our finalists, Nikita Afonzo of Penticton, was invited on stage to sing with Keith Urban. He saw her in the audience, asked her to come up and gave her the mic, and he sang harmony with her,” said Raeber. This year, the Bourbon Street Bar and Grill in the Prestige Hotel has sponsored to hold the OKHT finals on March 9. “There will be cash
and prizes, swag bags, recording opportunities, and we’re looking at a scholarship at this point as well as any other contributions from any generous businesses out there,” said Raeber. All entrants will also have the opportunity to perform at Lavington’s Back to Earth Community Harvest Festival as well as Vernon’s YAA Fest and Sunshine Festival and the Summerland Action Festival. “We get them gigs throughout the year and not just kids who win,” said Raeber. Auditions for OKHT take place on Feb. 23 and 24 at St. James School hall in Vernon. Applications are now online and can be accessed at ourkidshavetalent.com. “As applications are already coming in, we are looking forward to another successful and self-esteem building event for our musical youth for 2013,” said Raeber.

The secret to keeping life simple, joyful and fun is not something Judy Guido wants to keep to herself. As an instructor with the Inner Peace Movement of Canada, Guido helps to inspire people to believe in themselves and to live their potential by realizing there is no limit to what they can accomplish. “The Inner Peace Movement is just groups of people around the world who want to learn more about themselves and to grow,” said Guido. “The whole emphasis is on helping people learn to trust themselves and to realize that we all have the answers within.” Guido, who lives in Oyama but tours across the country facilitating workshops, will present two talks in Vernon next week. “The emphasis in the talks is on why we are here and how teamwork in action sets the stage for prosperity and fulfillment, she said. “The truth we seek is a unique and personal adventure and the best way to find our truth is participation with others. “As we learn to trust ourselves and the power of team, we set the stage for prosperity and fulfillment. Everything changes and nothing is stagnant and when we realize the meaningful qualities we see in others are facets of ourselves then we release competition and embrace cooperation.” The Inner Peace Movement of Canada (IPM) is a non-profit educational program that helps people recognize their true worth and be involved in a positive, constructive way with their loved ones, their community and themselves. Founded in 1964 by Dr. Francisco Coll, the IPM has expanded to more than 40 countries and currently has active programs in Canada, Europe, Australia and the United States. Guido has been involved with the IPM for more than 35 years and has worked with people from all walks of life to expand their potential using practical tools and techniques for better living. Growing up in Vancouver, she was like many other teens: searching for answers but rebelling against authority. But when a friend suggested she attend an IPM lecture, she came away with the knowledge that she was her own greatest authority. “I needed to learn to trust myself, I had all the answers within and I then had nothing to rebel against; others could assist me but it came from me.” The IPM is a practical program, said Guido, giving people a push in the right direction. More than ever, she believes people are searching for answers, for why they are here, and how they can be of service to others. “There really does seem to be a feeling of desperation and we can’t help but feel affected by what’s going on around us. People are desperate to find ways to be of service. “By coming to the lectures, people are
Judy Guido shares what she has learned through more than 35 years of involvement with the Inner Peace Movement of Canada. She will present two lectures in Vernon on Jan. 15. going to get the basic facts for themselves, they’re going to understand that we’re here on planet earth, learning about ourselves and growing spiritually, and one of those ways is interaction with people, and it’s through interaction with people that we find out about ourselves.” Guido said during the lectures, people will gain more understanding about their life purpose, the seven-year cycles of life, and communication with their team of guardian angels. They will also hear about the four spiritual avenues of communication: intuition where you may “hear” messages from your angels; vision when you may “see” pictures and visions in your
“...it’s through interaction with people that we find out about ourselves.” — Judy Guido mind’s eye; prophecy where you may just know what will happen next; and feeling when you bring healing through touch. “One of the other things is to help people develop that balance of thought and feeling. If we let our intellect rule, we’re always analyzing everything; if we’re all heart and no head, we do everything for everybody else; we need to have that balance so we’re loyal to ourselves first.” When Guido first began touring fulltime, her son and daughter were in their teens and she worried about everything from getting the laundry done to making dinner. “But my touring helped them learn to be independent — this is a very practical program that has helped me through the years in all areas, and it really helped me in raising my kids (now grown),” said Guido, who came to the Okanagan in 1991 when her husband decided to go into business for himself. “We ended up on the orchard that my mother and father-in-law had
lived on. I got plucked from the city to an orchard and had to learn — it was a tremendous lesson for me.” A certified consultant, instructor and national director with the IPM, Guido is also a member of her local Rotary Club and Trails Development Team. In the winter, she tends to stay closer to home, but once the snow melts, she’ll resume her touring, particularly to Canada’s Prairie provinces. “It’s been very exciting and beneficial to me to experience Saskatchewan and Manitoba, so it’s been a great experience. People are hungry and they are looking for solutions, and getting back to how to be of service, to help themselves or loved ones or community. “One area we are emphasizing is teamwork; everything is easier when I work with a team; no matter the situation, there is always a team; a family that runs well is a family that works as a team. “My forte on a team is to spearhead and break ground, but there are others on the team who are exceptional communicators and who can communicate the ideas and get others inspired. We can apply that to every facet of our life: to our home life, to our work life.” Guido’s talks for the Inner Peace Movement of Canada take place Jan. 15 at the Holiday Inn Express in Vernon, 471634th St., at 1 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. All are welcome to the 90-minute talks, and admission is $16 at the door. For more information, please visit the web site at www.innerpeacemovement.ca “Practice makes perfect, so before I leave any area, I help people to form study groups — it’s not a program of gurus. People can work with this ongoing in the community, at workshops and seminars, winter camps and summer camps; if people come to the lecture, there is nothing to join. “All facets of our lives is to learn from all things we do. Whatever you do, ask yourself what you’re learning and how are you growing.”

Eggs are back in the picture
ow are the new year’s resolutions going? And the one about getting rid of the flab and getting into shape? It is on my list of resolutions and by the time this goes to print, I will be well on my way, starting with eating breakfast, something I seldom do. According to Dr. Oz, if you want cathi Litzenberger to start losing weight, you need to start eating a good breakfast, and it should be high in protein. Contrary to popular belief, Oz says eggs are a perfect choice, as new evidence reputes the idea that eggs are linked to high cholesterol. Both of today’s recipes use eggs. The first

Tips for your amaryllis
ith the first column of 2013, I would like to take the opportunity to wish all of you a very happy new year. May these coming days be filled with good health, joy and peace. In mid-November I received a beautiful amaryllis from a friend. It has three large single flowers on top of a 53 cm stem. It is sitting on the window sill and I have to turn it around every day to keep it from leaning towards the light. I found the following article in a Family Circle magazine of 1984, Beautiful and easy-to-grow amaryllis. The amaryllis is one of the simplest indoor bulbs to grow. When you get it, it’s ready to bring into bloom — no cold storage or forcing required. It will reflower for years if you give it the proper care. Choose a container
A GArdener’s diAry
that allows two inches of space between bulb and edge of pot. Place bulb in container and pack soil firmly around base, leaving bulb neck and about a quarter of bulb exposed. Set container in a cool room (15 to 18 C) in good light (such as an east window); direct sun isn’t necessary. Keep soil barely moist. Move plant to warmer environment (21 to 24 C) once stalk and straplike leaves begin to develop. In six to eight weeks, a cluster of three or four large flowers will form on top of stalk. Larger bulbs
may produce a second flower stalk when the first begins to go. Once amaryllis blooms, feed it with a 5-10-5 fertilizer diluted to 1/4 strength every two weeks as long as it’s in flower. Keep soil evenly moist. When flowers die, cut stalk(s) to about two inches and maintain regular watering. After last spring frost, place pot outdoors in the ground in semi-shady part of the garden. Leave there for summer. Before first fall frost, bring container into cool room with subdued light; snip off all foliage and let bulb rest for a month without water or food. Then begin to water (keep barely moist) to spur new growth, and maintain the plant as before. Repot every two to three years. Likes to be root-bound. Separate and pot up bulb offsets in fall and treat new
plants as regular houseplants until they bloom. Replace the top layer of soil each year and add a little bone meal. For more information: 250-558-4556.

New partner for Silver Star resort Morning Star Staff
Silver Star Mountain Resort has a new corporate sponsor. A partnership with Rockstar Energy Drink is powering the resort’s ski and snowboard terrain park and snowcross track for 2013. “Our partnership with Rockstar let’s us build on the expansion work from last year, bringing the terrain park area to a whopping 20.5 acres,” said Robin Baycroft, resort services manager. “We have more than 40 metal handrail and box features already within our fleet and are introducing a few more fat pipe designs, intermediate box features, and a signature Oakley O feature.” Silver Star is the host mountain to one of the best freestyle ski clubs in Canada, train-

Mountain and, as the preferred energy drink of the resort, our sponsorship will extend a number of benefits to guests, adding to the already awardwinning experience at Silver Star,” said Daniel
St-Cyr, Rockstar director of sales. “In addition, it gives us the opportunity to present the new Rockstar Park this season, which we are stoked about.” Recently, Silver Star
received the Best Park in the West Award, fifth place, from SBC Resort Guide. “It’s mind-boggling that Silver Star has such a great park setup with absolutely zero snowmaking,” says Adam Levitt, editor of SBC Resort Guide. “An incredibly hardworking crew keeps their park in top shape and a high-speed sixpack chair allows for as many laps in the day as your legs can stand.” Riders and skiers can also test their speed and skills on the Olympic-style Rockstar snowcross course, featuring berms, rollers, quick straight-a-ways and a choice of multiple lanes, including a through-the-trees option.

Party to reunite
“LeafSource Stopped 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.”
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 inflammation, 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 antiinflammatory drugs that cause many more problems than they solve. It is safe to take up to six per day with absolutely no side-effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent anti-inflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction of 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.
Couple that with the possibility of matching funds for research projects and programs through the Pattison Foundation’s pledge of $2.5 million over five years for the Jim Pattison Centre of Excellence and there is a significant incentive to spur innovation activity, Haubrich notes.
Morning Star Staff
This product get results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. But it’s what LeafSource users are saying that truly demonstrates the products effectiveness: I have had cronic pain for over 15 years and have been going to a chiropractor monthly for pain therapy. I started using LeafSource two months ago and I am amazed at the results. I no longer have tendinitis, carple tunnel or irritable bowel. My arthritis is manageable, all my joints are limber and I’m able to exercise again. My energy levels are up, my nails and hair are stronger and my skin is softer. ~ Debbie
I am pretty stunned what this has done for me in 8 days of taking LeafSource. For 18 years I have tried many many products ...most of them expensive. And most did not work at all. I had been on a mission to find a product that is doing exactly what LeafSource is doing.So here I am on day 9 with 90% of my pain gone. ~ N. W. - Toronto

rime Minister Stephen Harper announced revised guidelines relating to foreign investments in Canada by entities controlled by foreign governments. During that announcement, the decision by Industry Canada was rendered regarding the acquisitions of Nexen by the Chinese stateowned oil and gas company NCOOC, and Colin Mayes the purchase of Progress Energy Resources by the Malaysian state-owned oil and gas company, Petronas. The announcement is not the beginning of a trend to sell Canada’s resources to foreign states but rather an announcement to end the trend. The prime minister made a clear distinction between free-market investment and investments by state-owned entities. The message was that Canada does not want foreign states to own majority interests in Canada’s natural resources to the extent that would compromise the sovereignty interests of Canada. Inward investment can play a big role in creating jobs and prosperity for Canadians particularly
V T n o e e s t ’ n o d u o y ing
when it comes from private investors on free-market terms. But not all foreign investment is equal. When it comes from foreign governments, we have to make sure that Canada’s best interests are protected. Accordingly, going forward, foreign government entities will not be permitted to acquire control of a Canadian oil sands business unless there are exceptional circumstances. Outside the oil sands, there will also be strengthened scrutiny of investment proposals. The more control that a foreign government is likely to exercise over a Canadian business or industry, the less likely the transaction will be approved. In a global market where many oil and gas companies are stateowned, Canada must be vigilant to insure that any state-owned entities that enter our domestic market do not control the industry to the extent that the investment would compromise our natural resources and market system sovereignty. The sum of the prime minister’s statement is that Canada will remain open for business. But this doesn’t mean Canada is for sale to foreign governments. I am certain all Canadians will applaud our prime minister’s leadership in protecting our sovereignty over our natural resources.

Vipers forced to shuffle roster Eviston sent home; Bird plucked from Coquitlam Graeme Corbett Morning Star Staff
For the first time in a long time, the Vernon Vipers could be sellers at B.C. Hockey League trade deadline. It all depends on what’s on offer said head coach/GM Jason Williamson, who has until 8 p.m. Thursday (6 p.m. for interleague transactions) to finalize his roster for the stretch run. The Vipers, last in the Interior Division at 12-17-0-7, host the fifth-place Trail Smoke Eaters (16-22-0-1) tonight at Wesbild Centre. “We’re listening to everything; we have to,” Williamson told The Morning Star Tuesday morning. “Not a lot of things are going on yet; a trade hasn’t been made yet this week. The phones are busy, but we’re not in a panic to do anything.” The Vipers did shuffle their roster over the weekend. Williamson sent 20-year-old forward Pearce Eviston home, and plucked free agent defenceman Jason Bird from the Coquitlam Express. Williamson said Eviston didn’t take kindly to being benched for taking a bad penalty in Friday’s 4-2 loss to the Salmon Arm SilverBacks. Eviston, whose little brother Bryce is a rookie d-man with the Snakes, was not in the lineup for Vernon’s thrilling 4-3 overtime win over the West Kelowna Warriors Saturday night at Wesbild. “We need players that put the team first and I made the decision (Friday) night that he wasn’t putting the team first,” said Williamson. “He’s got to do a little soul searching here to figure out what he wants to do with his hockey career.” Eviston did not return phone calls. Bird, a 19-year-old blueliner, was de-carded by the Express in December as he recovered from shoulder surgery. The Etobicoke, Ont. native was injured in a freak accident on opening day. He skated for the first time since the injury Monday with the Vipers, but isn’t expected to be ready for action for a couple weeks. “Feels good. It was my first real workout yesterday since I did it,” said Bird, a 6-foot-1, 180-pounder who compiled two goals, 10 assists and 37 penalty minutes in 52 games with Coquitlam last season. “I just want to play. I’m really excited. It’s a great organization. Their past record speaks for itself.” Williamson said having six healthy d-men already will allow him to bring Bird into the lineup when he is fully recovered. “It just solidifies things and gives us a little healthy competition back there,” he said. “It’s good that we won’t have to rely on APs going into the stretch. “He’s just got to get back into shape.” Meanwhile, Ryan Renz scored the OT winner to lift the Vipers past the Warriors in an entertaining 4-3 tilt Saturday before nearly 1,800 fans.

Vernon Viper goalie Danny todosychuk denies West Kelowna Warriors’ forward marcus basara with a little help from defenceman ryan renz in b.C. Hockey League action Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. renz scored in overtime to give Vernon a 4-3 win. Aaron Hadley provided a pair of goals for Vernon, and assisted on the opening marker by Adam Tambellini (22nd goal) in the first period. Hadley’s second snipe, his 11th of the season, was a goalof-the-year candidate. The burly forward went roof daddy on netminder Tyler Briggs while being hauled down by a West Kelowna defender as he crashed the net. Said Renz: “It was one of the best individual efforts I’ve seen in a long time in my Junior career.” “We were resilient tonight. People have been saying our team breaks down after giving up goals, but we hung with them each time they scored.” Renz, who played minor hockey with Hadley in Castlegar, turned in a gritty solo effort for the 4-on-4 winner. Unable to get a point shot off, he pushed wide and got a step on his check, and with teammate Dexter Dancs boxing out the remaining defender, he dove at the net, pushing the puck through Briggs’ five-hole. Second star David Pope (8th and 9th) replied for the 14-11-2-8 Warriors with a pair of sonic snipes off faceoffs won cleanly by Shawn Hochhausen. With the score 2-2 early in the third period, Vernon d-man
Geoff Crisfield took a wreckless hit from behind penalty that led to Pope setting up Seb Lloyd (17th) for a backdoor feed for the go-ahead goal. Warriors’ head coach Rylan Ferster said they should have put Vernon away for good after that tally. “When the score was 3-2, I don’t think we took the game over like we should have, but full marks to them, they were playing hard,” said Ferster. Viper backup Danny Todosychuk was steady in recording 28 saves for his third win. Briggs had 33 stops. The Vipers wrap up a three-game homestand Saturday against the Powell River Kings. SNAKE BITES: Former Viper coach Mark Ferner has been fired from his head coaching duties by the WHL Everett Silvertips. He will be replaced by on an interim basis by Tips’ GM Garry Davidson, former co-owner of the Salmon Arm SilverBacks...Former Viper forward Mike Collins, now with the Merrimack Warriors, is nominated for the Hobey Baker Award, which is given to the NCAA Division 1 MVP... Ex-Viper d-man Max Mowat ended his Junior hockey career before the Christmas break due to injury. Mowat, 19, had three assists in 23 games with the Okotoks Oilers.

The Sun Valley Source For Sports Renegades posted a pair of Bantam Tier 2 hockey wins last weekend. The Renegades (7-5-1) opened by brushing back the West Kelowna Warriors 6-4 in exhibition action Saturday at Civic Arena and followed with a 4-1 Okanagan Mainline league win over the Kamloops Blazers Sunday at Civic. The Renegades fell behind the Warriors 2-0 before battling back to tie it up with goals from Michael LeNoury (from Jagger Williamson and Nick Higgs) and Williamson (from Eamonn Miller and Kaden Black). Black went top shelf, from Williamson and Harvey Pawsey), early in the second before West Kelowna levelled things before the ice clean. Vernon then took a 5-3 lead with goals from Williamson (assists to Black and Miller) and Josh DeCoffe (from Black and Miller) before Westside made it close. Williamson got his hat trick goal into the empty net. Against Kamloops (9-5), the Renegades (7-5-1) broke open a tight affair with two goals in the first period from Jarrett Campbell (assist to Donte Nowell) and Black (assists to Williamson and LeNoury). The Sun Valley crew kept pressuring and were rewarded with their third goal, unassisted by Miller. Kamloops clicked on a power play before Campbell iced it with an empty netter, on a feed by Matt Kowalski. In Midget Tier 1 play, the Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers tied the North Kamloops Lions 3-3 Saturday at Civic Arena and iced the host Winfield Juveniles 3-1 Sunday. The Vipers (5-6-2) led 3-1 after two periods with Kenny Batke clicking from Austin Garrington and Wyatt Warnes, Travis Churchill converting from Warnes and Hayden Chase scoring from Churchill and Matt Halvorson.

Vernon produced one powerplay goal per period with Dustin Copeland opening the attack in the first period, from Mitchell Lukacs. In the second period, Lukacs made a great end to end rush, holding off the defender with one arm and carrying the puck in and scoring the winner, also on the powerplay. Merritt responded early in the third, but Lee Springer connected with the man advantage, assisted by Pawsey and Jordan Rea, at 3:58. Just over a minute later, Copeland scored after a nice outlet pass from Zach Manton and Lukacs. The Coca-Cola boys host an eight-team Winter Classic starting Friday.

Peters powers Sonic attack against Vikes Morning Star Staff
The Seaton Sonics went 1-2 in the Valleyview Vikings senior boys basketball tournament last weekend in Kamloops. Seaton battled back from a 12-point, third-quarter deficit before falling 60-58 to the Vikes. The Sonics tied the game at 58-58 with four seconds left, only to lose a heartbreaker at the buzzer. Tournament allstar Kuup Peters poured in 19 second-half points. The Sonics then rallied to stop the Salmon Arm Golds 58-52 after trailing by nine at the half. With shooting guard Matt McEachran-Law away for the entire month in Panama with Students Without Borders, it was once again Peters picking up the offensive slack by draining 17 in the second half. Alex Baxter rung up 14 points and 10 rebounds, while junior call up Parker Friesen canned 10 points. Hard pressed to top the drama of the first two games,
the Sonics did just that in a 47-46 thrilling win over the Okanagan Mission Huskies. After losing to the Huskies in Kelowna in December, the Sonics had revenge on their minds. Though leading for most of the game, led by a rocksolid defence, the Sonics found themselves with the ball, down by a point with 10 seconds remaining, as the Huskies’ outside shooting caught fire. Executing the in-bound play to perfection, Liam MacPhee’s pass was handled by Friesen, who fed Luke Harrigan, who dumped it inside to the cutting Peters, who finished the play by hitting one of his trademark floaters from 15 feet for the win. Baxter, MacPhee and Harrigan all had outstanding defensive performances. North Zone league play resumes tonight (8:15) with the VSS Panthers entertaining the Fulton Maroons in their new gymnasium. The senior girls game goes at 6:30.
Knights lean on reserves Morning Star Staff
Kris Mallette hardly treats affiliates like they’re crash-test dummies. Instead, he gives them regular shifts, puts them out on the penalty kill and lets them learn on the fly in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. D o w n three defencemen due to suspension, injury and illness, the North Okanagan Knights used Tanner Burns three Midget call-ups in a pair of weekend road wins – 3-2 over the Kamloops Storm and 5-1 over the Chase Heat. Matt Halvorson, a d-man with the Vernon Home Building Centre Midget Tier 1 Vipers, scored his first KIJHL goal to help the Knights Sunday in Chase. Forward Logan Geefs (Vernon) and d-man Justin Lange (Pursuit of Excellence, Kelowna) also enjoyed solid outings. “They all did a fantastic job for us,” said Mallette, head coach of the Knights. “Every time we bring somebody up, they play well and that bodes well for the team in the future.” The Knights were without Mac
Ferner (suspension), Dryden Profeit (flu) and Tyler Bolduc (broken ankle). Tanner Burns, who the Knights could lose to the BCHL at the Thursday night carding deadline, recorded his team-high 22nd and 23rd goals of the season against the Heat. Matty Saharchuk fired his 15th and Brett Hawrys got his 10th as the Knights improved to 23-11-1-2. Dominick Hodges netted his 11th for the Heat (9-25-3-1). The Knights, who got 17 saves from Austin Buzzell, lost forward Colton Thibault (Vernon) with a high-sticking major late in the third period. The Heat went 1-for-9 on the powerplay with Josh Ellis and Derek Andrews leading a strong Knights’ penalty-killing unit. In Kamloops, the Knights went up 2-1 just 29 seconds into the third when captain Steven Pantazopoulos earned his sixth snipe of the season, from Ellis and Mat Lambert (Vernon). Lambert, named first star, netted the eventual winner, at 9:47, his 15th, on a powerplay, assisted by Ellis and Hawrys. Andrews put North Okanagan up 1-0 in the final minute of the first, with his 14th of the year, from Burns. Knights’ d-man Nathan Browne (Vernon) took second star. Buzzell
made 39 stops. Daniel Buchanan connected for his 18th and 19th goals for the Storm (13-20-2-4). The Knights, meanwhile, have carded Lumby’s Dylan Bowen, a POE grad who had one assist and 14 penalty minutes in 25 games with the BCHL Salmon Arm SilverBacks. Bowen is 5-foot-10, 165 pounds. “He should help our back end,” said Mallette. “(Assistant Webb) Shawn and I watched him at Salmon Arm’s camp extensively, and he’s a shot-blocking defenceman who has some offensive upside.” The Knights have also carded d-man David London, a Kelowna product who is waiting to see what the BCHL Nanaimo Clippers do at the deadline. London, a 6-foot-2, 210-pounder, has played eight games as an AP with Nanaimo. London, 19, amassed 1-12-13 in 41 games with Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BCHL last year. The Knights host the Kelowna Chiefs Friday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre before visiting the Revelstoke Grizzlies Saturday and entertaining the first-overall Nelson Leafs in a 3 p.m. matinee Sunday. North Okanagan is just one point back of the division-leading Sicamous Eagles.

Edwards misses B.C. playoffs Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s Amy Edwards was one win shy of a playoff berth at the Tim Hortons B.C. Junior Women’s Curling Championships in Coquitlam. Edwards, backed by third Sydney Hofer and the front end of Kylie Tokairin and Courtney Woo, fell 5-4 to Corryn Brown of Kamloops in her final round-robin game Saturday morning. Up by a point after eight ends, the Vernon foursome gave up back-to-back singles.
Brown went on to upend Nanaimo’s Kalia Van Osch in the championship game Sunday. Brown will compete in the M&M Meat Shops nationals, Feb. 2-10, in Fort McMurray. Meanwhile, the Vernon foursome of skip Brendan Cliff, third Matthew Schiman, second Devin Schmidt and lead Tyler Young went winless at the B.C. Junior Men’s playdowns, ending with a 7-6 loss to Kelowna’s Brandon Emslie Saturday morning.
Vernon’s Diane Schuetze is the athlete of the week in the Canada West Athletic Conference. The fifth-year post flushed 28 points, recorded 15 rebounds, four blocks and one steal as the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) WolfPack stopped the UBC Okanagan Heat 91-54 in women’s basketball action Saturday in Kamloops. Schuetze is the Canada West’s top scorer (20.4 points per game) and rebounder Diane Schuetze (11.6) in 2012-13 and ranks among the all-time conference leaders in numerous categories. In Saturday’s win, she was the WolfPack’s leading scorer and rebounder for the sixth time this season and registered her 18th career double-double, tied for seventh place on the all-time Canada West list with Anna Drewniak of Manitoba (1999-2004). “She is going to be a handful for anyone, not just in our league, but throughout the country,” said TRU head coach Scott Reeves. “She is definitely a fifth-year All-Canadian, there is no question.” The WolfPack improved to 8-3, while the Heat
dipped to 4-7. Sarah Allison paced the Heat with 14 points, while Vernon products Emily Kanester and Maddie Kaneda each drained 10. In men’s play, the Heat got 20 points and eight boards from former Pleasant Valley Saint Mitch Goodwin in a 76-59 win over the WolfPack Saturday at the Tournament Capital Centre. Game MVP Brett Rouault (3rd year, guard, Vernon) had 18 points. “I was really proud of our guys’ effort,” said 2-9 Heat head coach Pete Guarasci. “We sustained it throughout the whole game. Not only our physical effort, but our mental effort. “We stayed focused and we guarded well and tried to do good things on offence and make good shots. I was really happy with the way they executed the game-plan.”

THE RIGHT SUIT THE RIGHT WAY Henry Ford said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” Right -- I think! And in today’s deal there is not only a right suit to play first, but also a right way to play it. South is in three no-trump. West leads his fourth-highest spade, East puts up the jack, and declarer takes the trick with his queen. How should he continue? South had six top tricks: two spades (given the first trick) and four diamonds. Looking no further than dummy’s strongest suit, he played a club to the jack. However, East won with his ace and returned a spade. Declarer’s 10 lost to West’s
king, and another spade dislodged declarer’s ace. Unconcerned, South led another club, but West’s diamond discard was a huge disappointment. Declarer won on the board and called for a heart, but East grabbed the trick with his ace and returned his last spade. The defenders took one club, one heart and three spades for down one. Yes, South was unlucky, but if he had thought about a bad club break, he might have thought about the right line of play. He should have played a diamond to dummy and led a low heart toward his jack. Here, if East ducks, declarer wins the trick and shifts to clubs, taking two spades, one heart, four diamonds and two clubs. If
East wins, South has two spades, three hearts and four diamonds. Lastly, if West could capture the heart jack with the ace, a spade lead would give South a third trick in the suit. Declarer would have time to knock out the club ace and win at least one overtrick.

Baryla 1927~2013 Our dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother (GG) left us on January 05, 2013 to be with the love of her life, George, who predeceased her in 1997. Helen was born February 20, 1927 in Kipling, Saskatchewan before moving to Manitoba where she met George and married in 1950. They moved to Northern Ontario in the early 1950’s where they raised their family. In the early 1980’s Helen and George moved to Vernon to enjoy and watch their grandchildren grow up. Over the past five years her greatest enjoyment was the time she spent with her great-granddaughter Parker Jane Adair. Mom was a member of St. James CWL. She belonged to Lincoln Lanes Senior Bowling and also played Bridge. Mom loved going to Powerhouse Theatre and the Performing Arts Center. She was especially keen to watch golf and curling on TV. She had a passion for traveling abroad. Mom got excited and always made it special times when the family was coming home. She will be dearly missed by her son Paul (Lorraine), daughters Cynthia (Geza), Catherine, grandson Christopher (Amelie) granddaughter Amber (Clayton), great-granddaughter Parker Jane, brothers Philip and George (Doreen). Helen was predeceased by her husband George, father Peter, mother Caroline, brothers Steve, William (Bill) and sister Kathaleen. A celebration of Helen’s life will be held at 2 pm on Friday, January 11, 2013 at St. James Roman Catholic Church (2607-27th Street Vernon) with Rev. Father Dale Normandeau officiating. Following the service a gathering will be held at the home of Paul and Lorraine. The family would like to give a special thank you to the staff at Creekside Landing for their support and care and also the staff (emergency & 2west) at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Those wishing to do so may make a memorial donation in Helen’s memory to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation (2101-32nd Street Vernon, BC V1T 5L2).

Since December 2011, B.C. has added 19,400 jobs as a result of a gain of 30,800 fulltime positions combined with a loss of 11,400 part-time positions.
