Foster remains under fire over office RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Scrutiny is intensifying but Eric Foster continues to defend himself. The B.C. Conservatives want the provincial conflict of interest commissioner to revisit the Vernon-Monashee MLA leasing an office from the family of his executive assistant. “If the conflict of interest commissioner thinks there is new information, he will do what he does. He will do his job,” said Foster. “It’s been dealt with. The commissioner found that I’m not in a conflict of interest. I didn’t do anything wrong.” Scott Anderson, local B.C. Conservative candidate, questions why Foster moved to a 31st Avenue building in 2009 when his

“I didn’t do anything wrong.” — Eric Foster

predecessor, Tom Christensen, had a constituency office on 30th Avenue. “It was run down and in need of substantial renovation,” said Anderson. Anderson claims $250,000 in renovations were done. Legislative documents have indicated the original bill submitted for the work was $78,000 but that was later reduced to $67,000. “If the conflict of interest commis-

sioner didn’t have all of the details of this transaction when he cleared Mr. Foster of a conflict of interest, we think he should reopen the case and we will ask him to do so,” said Anderson. “If he did have all of the details and found no conflict of interest any way, then Mr. Foster’s actions are emblematic of a much larger problem with politics in B.C.” Foster says he is getting tired of the Conservatives’ claims. “The Conservatives don’t have policies they want to talk to. It’s just mudslinging,” he said. Foster says that when he was elected, he wanted an office with ground-floor access and parking and Christensen’s office didn’t meet those requirements.

He insists the 31st Avenue site met his needs after looking at several options and his decision to lease was not influenced by ownership of the building. “Tom’s office was higher-square-footage rent than mine and his renovations were being paid out of the same funds as mine,” said Foster. “The only difference was mine was a separate line item (in constituency expenses).” A Victoria area resident has asked B.C. Assessment to review the assessment of the 31st Avenue property based on the renovations, but Foster isn’t sure how he is involved in that matter. “I have nothing to do with the assessment. I don’t own the building and I don’t pay the taxes,” he said.

Mund captures Good Citizen honour RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

JENNIFER SMITH/MORNING STAR

Akbal Mund is surprised to learn Monday that he is Vernon’s Good Citizen of the Year. Check out the video at vernonmorningstar.com.

“I do it because it’s the right thing to do.” — Akbal Mund

“We need to clone him. He does so much and doesn’t ask for anything in return,” said McEwan. As part of the honour, Mund has received a parking pass from the City of Vernon. “He symbolizes the kind of citizen we all

hope to achieve,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. Mund is reluctant to focus on his activities and instead points to all of the other volunteers locally. “Everyone helps in their own way,” he said. “I do it because it’s the right thing to do and you want to give back to the community. The Good Citizen of the Year Award is sponsored by Junior Chamber International’s Vernon’s chapter. Mund will be featured during the Vernon Winter Carnival parade Feb. 2 and he will be official recognized at the Winter Break-Out

celebration Feb. 5.

Akbal Mund is known for his energy and never sitting still, but he took a few minutes Monday to be recognized by the community. Mund showed up at Kiss FM for what he thought was a Wendy’s Dreamlift Day planning meeting, but, instead, he was named Vernon’s Good Citizen of the Year. “It was a big surprise,” said the 52-yearold Wendy’s restaurant area partner. “I had no idea, none. It’s kind of a shock.” Mund, who has lived in Vernon since 1993, is one of the founders of Wendy’s Dreamlift Day, which raises funds to send children with life-threatening illnesses and significant disabilities to Disneyland for a day. “Most of the kids have never been away from their parents for more than a couple of hours. It’s their first time for independence,” he said. Mund was also volunteer chairperson of the 2012 B.C. Winter Games in Greater Vernon. “The success of the Games, in my opinion, was due to Akbal’s leadership and his ability to infuse enthusiasm and ownership into his directors and their hard-working committees,” said Larry Grist, accommodations director for the Games. Among the other groups Mund has been involved with are the Vernon Soccer Association, Funtastic, coaching youth soccer, the North Okanagan Sports Council and Funtastic. He has also sponsored biathlon at Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre and speed skater Connie Kapak while organizing fundraising dances, silent auctions and dinners for a number of local charitable organizations. “It is wonderful to live in a place that you know, when there is a need there will be people to help fill that need. Akbal Mund is this kind of person,” said Cindy Masters, Kindale Developmental Association development officer. Jim McEwan, Funtastic Sports Society executive director, is impressed with Mund’s willingness to give of himself.

Dukhia first BCFGA president from Vernon RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Jeet Dukhia has made history. He is the first president from Vernon in the 124 years of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association. “I feel very good about this but I represent the entire Okanagan,” said Dukhia, who has 42 acres in the BX. “I feel pretty positive about the industry. I am very optimistic when I see all of the new plantings.” Dukhia, who was acting president, was

“I feel positive about the industry” — Jeet Dukhia

elected to the top job during the BCFGA’s convention in Penticton Saturday. Among his priorities are to ensure ongoing senior government support for the industry, particularly over 1964’s Columbia River Treaty. “The treaty did lots of damage for the

Okanagan Valley,” said Dukhia. “Washington State used our water and they have 100,000 acres in orchards. We have to get some compensation from the government.” The BCFGA is also working with other commodity groups and the government to open

up new markets for B.C. cherries in China. “It’s a huge market and more cherry plantings are coming into production all of the time,” said Dukhia. However, he admits that some challenges must be overcome before exports begin. “They don’t recognize our methods of testing for pesticides and we are working with the Chinese government on this,” he said. Another issue is successorship and encouraging young people to

get into the tree fruit industry and operate family farms. “We want to see families carry on from generation to generation,” said Dukhia. Dukhia, who was vice-president, became interim president in December after Kirpal Boparai resigned from the top post. Boparai was kicked out of the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative because he did not conform to contract terms. Despite a year of turmoil, Dukhia doesn’t believe there are any

Local lawyer awaits sentencing in March ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

A Vernon lawyer who admitted to taking part in organized crime activities may find out his fate in March. Five court days for sentencing have been set aside from March 4 to 8 for the case of William Mastop, 46. The matter will be

heard by a judge in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver. Mastop entered a guilty plea in December to participating in the activities of a North Okanagan gang referred to by police as The Greeks. Crown lawyer David Jardine said Monday he couldn’t say if Mastop

would be sentenced during that week. The judge hearing the matter may take some time to absorb submissions from both sides before rendering a decision. Mastop was arrested in January 2010 in Lake Country, and has been out on bail since which carries a number of

Village endorses campaign RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Providing stability for community resources has the full support of Lumby’s civic leaders. Council members endorsed the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre’s fundraising project Monday. “It’s a really good idea,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. “The organization is always facing a shortfall.” The goal of the campaign is to raise $800,000 over five years. The principle will remain in an endowment fund and the interest

generated each year will help cover operational expenses at the centre. “Council’s endorsement is significant,” said Gay Jewitt, centre executive director. “We hope that with their commitment, other community members, organizations and businesses will see the value of the project and choose to support Whitevalley’s Legacy Fund by contributing as they can. Acton is urging all Lumby area residents to get behind the centre’s campaign. “I believe they will be successful,” he said.

Liberal hopeful on the ground JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Across the country, including a stop in Vernon Monday, a federal Liberal leadership candidate is waving the red flag. David Bertschi met with a handful of local Liberals at Bean to Cup Monday afternoon, as part of his On The Ground tour. “My main goal is re-building the Liberal party,” said 53-year-old Bertschi, co-founder of an Ottawa legal practice.

“It doesn’t matter what you do in life, make sure you leave this world a better place.” — David Bertschi

Along with promoting the Liberal banner, Bertschi is conversing with Canadians on six core issues: economic performance, social justice, smart government/intelligent politics, Canada in the world, Canada at home and Liberal Party 2.0. When it comes to the economy, a topic on most Canadian’s minds, Bertschi says in many areas there is a lack of opportunities for skilled people. “You’ve got all the skills but you can’t find a job.” That’s a situation Vernon’s Kam Chander found himself in after a job he held for 15 years was terminated when the glass plant shut down in Lavington. With nowhere else to take his skills (due to a lack of industry in the area), Chander took up a new opportunity and

purchased the Bean to Cup coffee house. But owning a company and working for someone else are two very different worlds and Chander says both federal and provincial government’s need to better assist small businesses. “Cheaper loans would be great to help businesses,” said Chander. The Liberal supporter also isn’t overly impressed with the region’s current MP, Colin Mayes, and would like to see more elected officials who are easy to access – like the Liberals. “I’ve been to (Colin Mayes’) office many times and I don’t know what he looks like honestly,” said Chander. The situation is quite opposite at MLA Eric Foster’s office, where Chander has met with the provincial represen-

tative on a number of occasions and shared his concerns. But, he notes, “There’s only so much that a local MLA can do compared to your MP.” Another topic of discussion during Bertschi’s Vernon visit was healthcare. “We’ve got to do it better and faster,” said Bertschi, noting unacceptable time periods patients are enduring to finally be diagnosed properly and then the following wait to see the necessary specialists and/or receive the proper treatment. Raised by a single mother, Bertschi is also a strong advocate of education and hard work, something he strives to pass down to the six children in his own blended home. “I take my grandfather’s advice: it doesn’t matter what you do in life, make sure you leave this world a better place.” Bertschi has long been involved in politics, but first ran in 2011 in Ottawa-Orleans. While he was unsuccessful, he still managed to increase the Liberal vote.

! ! N O T E K C Councillor calling for cost cuts GET A JA richard rolke

Morning Star Staff

A Vernon politician hopes his colleagues will reconsider a hike in taxes. Presently, the city’s 2013 budget calls for a 4.2 per cent tax increase, or an additional $45 for the average household. “I hope it’s not where we end up,” said Coun. Bob Spiers, who would hope the overall figure can be reduced before final adoption of the budget occurs. “I’m not pleased with some of the projects we’re spending money on.” Specifically, Spiers opposes $2 million for 30th Avenue revitalization and $1 million for the Polson Greenway on 29th Street from 41st to 43rd avenues. “They are cosmetic. They are out of time and out of place,” he said. Of the 4.2 per cent tax increase, 2.3 per cent is for general city operations and 1.9 is designated for infrastructure replacement. “It’s necessary because we haven’t had a well thought out plan to deal with aging infrastructure,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. “It’s not a wish list. It’s a must-do list. Earlier maintenance and care saves money in the long run.”

“I’m not pleased with some of the projects.” — Bob Spiers

Some parking fees will be climbing to bolster revenue but some possible service cuts have been left on the sidelines. Among the programs that will remain are the collection of leaves and prunings. No decision has been made on withdrawing $150,000 in support for O’Keefe Ranch. “There’s a pending core services review. We want to make a decision that’s fully informed,” said Sawatzky of the need for more information. It’s anticipated council will give the budget bylaw three readings Jan. 28 and then a public input session will be held Feb. 8. The budget could be adopted Feb. 22 but Sawatzky admits the tax increase could still change. “There is always interest within council in trying to reduce it and it is the purview of council to meet and discuss it,” he said.

Jeet Dukhia has taken on a task not many would want willingly. The Vernon resident is the new president of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association, and despite the industry’s 124 years of rich history, it is currently facing extreme challenges.

She raised her hand against the motion cally important to the Okanagan.

Walking the beat

t’s easy to forget what it used to be like in downtown Vernon. Back in 2008, there were widespread concerns about criminal activity and drugs. “We are exposing people and families to huge risks,” said Mary-Jo O’Keefe, then president of the Downtown Vernon Association. “A child could pick up a needle and that’s a scary thing.” Some merchants had found condoms on sidewalks or in alleys. “It does impact our business when that’s the day-to-day reality,” said O’Keefe. A few years earlier — in 2005 — Cenotaph Park was ground zero for problems. Drug use was open and transients were sleeping there. Conditions ultimately escalated to the point that Richard Rolke the DVA hired private security to supplement the police and bylaw enforcement. All of this came to mind as the current city council proposes to reduce the RCMP detachment by two officers. It was also on the mind of Supt. Reg Burgess, officer in charge of the local police. “I have grave concerns that we will lose all ground on the considerable improvements to public safety that we have achieved these past few years,” said Burgess in a letter to council. “Crime on the streets of Vernon was significantly higher three to four years ago than it is today. We have been able to maintain suppression of visible crime and associated fear of crime through the use of high visibility tactics such as our downtown enforcement unit, enhanced foot patrols and random undercover operations.” Rolling back staff, Burgess suggests, will leave the RCMP challenged to address crime. “To reduce policing capacity as a strategy to address normal cost increases such as wages, fuel, mandated equipment or training, and

Grindrod hall requires support

n regards to the article written by Richard Rolke in The Morning Star Nov. 2 stating "Lack of funds puts project in jeopardy." Colin Mayes stated, "Our funding was for upgrading existing facilities and they were advised they would be wise to fix up the existing facility." I was recently shown a letter from Colin Mayes dated July 9, 2012 which supported the Grindrod Recreation Association's application for funding to construct a new community hall. He further states, "This new building will provide a much-needed community facility for the residents of Grindrod." Recently, I have noticed grants for the Lumby spray park, the Kingfisher community, the Cherryville community and the Grandview Bench community. So how come the Grindrod Recreation Association has received no funding for this very worthwhile project? Blair luckow

idle no more To the prime minister of Canada, Steven Harper The Idle No More movement is about our responsibility to First Nations people and much more. It is about ensuring they and we have a healthy environment in our lifetime and in our children's children. The clock is ticking for climate change and it is time for you to front up to your responsibility as our country's leader to take strong initiatives to convert to a green economy. Instead, what do we see? A sell-out to China in our dirty oil and gas sector, then sealing it with trade deals that insure they can expand and pollute land and waters and send as much C02 as the please. The only criteria is they must not be hindered in any way with making profit. Future governments who may not be as ideology driven as yours of profit for the corporations will have their hands tied. The Canadian taxpayer will have to foot the bill to see any progress on environmental issues. All of this behind closed doors. All this imposed without debate in Parliament, all while posing as good arbitrators of democratic principles. Never have Canadians been treated so shabbily. Omnibus bills instead of parliamentary debate, campaigns against all who might not follow your doctrine, and this includes any-

one with an education whether they be civil servants, scientists, opposition members, labour leaders, and gutting of responsible government as seen with the long-gun registry, the long-form census, the Canadian Wheat Board, and the years of social and environmental checks and balances that past governments have deemed essential for a civil society. I am tired of being manipulated into thinking the most essential criteria for a good Canadian is hockey, knowing about the War of 1812, and the failed Franklin mission. We are much more than that. We used to have an enviable reputation abroad for peacemaking and our stand for global justice. Our standing has slipped so much in the eyes of the world so that we can not hope to regain our seat on the Security Council, hopefully just while the Harper government reigns. Idle no more, may we rise up together and restore our Canadian government before your government topples us like lemmings over the edge. Judy Stockdale landing firefighterS As 2013 begins, another year has ended and so too has a once proud organization called the Okanagan Landing Fire Department. After more than 35 years of service to the residents of Okanagan Landing, it has

been given a very unceremonious boot out the door by a group of civic politicians who never truly understood what it stood for and who repeatedly made it be known that they had no intention of wanting to do so. What has not ended, however, is the dismay by many Vernon citizens that neither the representatives of the OKLVFD or concerned citizens in support of their cause were ever granted the right to appear before city council. Democracy in action? I don't think so. Democracy is one of the greatest privileges we have in Canada and it involves much more than casting a ballot each election day. Unfortunately, council did not see it this way and would not accept the presentation by a concerned community member of a petition that garnered more than 1,600 signatures in support of retaining the OKLVFD. Nor would it allow an OKLVFD representative to address council regarding their concerns related to the amalgamation with the Vernon Fire Department. Whether you agree with the decision by Councillors Cunningham, Lord and Quiring and Mayor Sawatzky, who voted for amalgamation or not, if you are a person who believes that all citizens have the right to be heard by their political representative on important matters of concern, then you are probably troubled by how this situation was handled. Yes, the letter of the law was adhered to by city council but the true underpinnings

of democracy were not. So I guess that now leaves citizens who believe that this situation was not handled democratically to wait for the next chance to voice their concerns, that being the next civic election. At least at that time, I know my voice, in the form of my ballot, will be honoured. dan dueck

Public urged to speak up on Lumby sewer survey RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Lumby residents are being urged to delve into the community’s business. To date, there has been very little public interest in a survey on the village’s liquid waste management review and sewer treatment. “We are asking people to provide input on what they would like

to see happen,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. “If we don’t get community input, decisions will be made by a very small group on a committee. I would hate to see people riled up after the fact because they didn’t take the opportunity to get involved.” The survey has been mailed out with utility bills and it’s available at www.lumby.ca.

“It’s a quick survey. It only takes about two minutes to fill out,” said Acton. Municipalities are legislated by the provincial government to update their liquid waste management plans every few years. As part of the process, options for the current treatment system will be considered. “It’s serving its pur-

Drummer brings his new posse to jazz club Canada’s top jazz musicians arrive at Vernon Jazz Club to play ‘60s hard bop and romantic swing

Dvoira YanovskY For The Morning Star

Jazz fans will enjoy a rare treat when the Morgan Childs Quartet takes the stage at the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. One of Canada’s foremost jazz musicians, award-winning drummer Childs is admired by peers and elders alike.  Childs’ band is a dream team of leading jazz musicians including awardwinning saxophonist Kelly Jefferson, former Boss Brass pianist Dave Restivo, and one of Toronto’s hottest bassists, Jon Maharaj. The quartet performs a playful mix of standards and ballads by artists like Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, Victor Young, and George Gershwin. They also feature original tunes by Childs in the hard bop style of artists like Horace Silver, Clifford Brown, and John Coltrane. Band leader Childs is equally influenced by the romanticism and swing of greats like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and Louis Armstrong, and master bebop

T

drummers like Art Blakey and Max Roach. “My musical style is a groove-based jazz approach influenced by American and Canadian jazz from the past 100 years, including people like Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Wayne Shorter,” said Childs. Childs’ sound blends forwardlooking, contemporary instincts with a warm, vintage sound aesthetic. “One of the challenges a drummer has is to be able to express romanticism on our instrument as well as power and excitement.  I have worked hard to have an approach to jazz and to music in general that embraces that balance,” said Childs. Childs listened to and performed all styles of music before embracing jazz. “What drew me into the world of jazz was seeing it live – making connections between what I’d heard on records by people like Miles Davis and what I was seeing live,” said Childs. Childs is a two-time winner of the Grand Prix du Jazz at the Montreal Jazz Festival – in 2012 as a member of the Robi Botos Trio and in 2009 with the Amanda Tosoff Quartet. He also performs with Organic, and with bassist Brandi Disterheft. Nominated numerous times for the

National Jazz Award Saxophonist of the Year, Jefferson holds a master’s degree from New York’s Manhattan School of Music and serves on the faculty at the University of Toronto.  Jefferson’s busy schedule has taken him all over North America, Europe, and Asia, including a nine month stint with legendary trumpeter Maynard Ferguson in 2009. Three-time National Jazz Award Pianist of the Year, Restivo is one of Canada’s most respected and influential jazz artists, including 15 years with the legendary Rob McConnell’s Boss Brass. He has performed and recorded with an incredible host of musicians like Mel Tormé, Pat LaBarbera, Randy Bachman, Molly Johnson, Jane Bunnett, Jeff Healey, and P.J. Perry, among many others. One of Toronto’s most in-demand bassists, Maharaj is making his mark in a variety of genres. A member of the house band for the first two seasons of the CBC’s Triple Sensation, Maharaj also played bass in the Toronto productions of Rock of Ages and Jersey Boys. He also appeared on The Canadian Tenor’s double-platinum CD The Perfect Gift. The Morgan Childs Quartet takes the stage at the Vernon Jazz Club, 3000-31st St,. Saturday at 8 p.m. Doors open 7:15 p.m. Tickets are available in advance ($20 cash only) at the Bean Scene and Bean to Cup or online via www.vernonjazzclub.ca.

Glorious guitar fills Performing Arts Centre

he Montreal Guitar Trio, otherwise known as MG3, exudes energy, wit, and musicianship. Like a finetuned sports car, the three guitarists zoom through pieces at a Grand Prix pace and pass the finish line with a flourish, perfectly synchronized. When they performed at the Christine Pilgrim North Okanagan Community Concert Association’s (NOCCA) third presentation of its season at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre (PAC) Friday, their enthusiasm was mirrored by that of the crowd. After the final piece, Sébastien Dufour’s Garam Masala, they clamoured for more until MG3, seasoned veterans of a 15-year musical partnership, graced the stage for an encore. Marc Morin laid aside both acoustic and electric bass guitars in favour of a small wooden accordion (accordions traditionnel in French), which responded to his lightning touch as if the two were wed. Dufour dexterously plucked the charango, a small stringed wooden instrument fashioned after one originally made from the shell of the Bolivian armadillo. Glenn Levesque whistled the haunting strains of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. And the crowd roared. After the show, the trio’s vibrancy spilled into the foyer where these three consummate musicians signed fans’ copies of their latest CD, Cambria. It included 50 per cent of the program content, from Levesque’s evocative 5 Minutes Pour Haiti to George

Montréal Guitar Trio’s sébastien Dufour (left) joined band mates Marc Morin and Glenn Levesque in signing CDs for audience members after their performance on Friday. Classical musician Daniel Bolshoy tunes his guitar before his performance with the okanagan symphony on sunday. Harrison’s classic While My Guitar Gently Weeps. MG3’s professionalism was echoed backstage by NOCCA’s stage manager Joan Sasges, MG3’s sound man Ian Vadnais and PAC’s technician Eric Pells, whose simple but elegant set and lighting enhanced the already splendid evening, as did Neal Fraser’s guitar students, Will Friesen, Emily Ross and Mitchell Reynolds, who entertained in the foyer beforehand. Equally brilliant but entirely different was the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra’s (OSO) Espana concert, featuring renowned classical guitarist Daniel Bolshoy as well as the Youth Symphony of the Okanagan. At the beginning and end of the evening, playing Emanuel Chabrier’s Espana (hence the concert title) and Nicolai RimskyKorsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol respectively, the

blended orchestras numbered more than 100 musicians. The music they made together was as inspiring as the concept of young students playing alongside professionals. Composer, conductor and OSO’s principal second violinist, Imant Raminsh, first mentored youth through the YSO 24 years ago and now OSO’s conductor Rosemary Thomson and horn player Dennis Colpitts continue the tradition. Some young members were dwarfed by their instruments, others’ feet didn’t quite reach the floor, yet they captured the essence of both pieces and they played superbly. Nonetheless, the star of the evening was undoubtedly Bolshoy. As one audience member commented, “He’s a feast for sore eyes and he plays a mean guitar too,” or in the two word summary of an orchestra member, he’s “sizzling hot.” (She said she

was referring to his music.) Bolshoy’s witty repartee with Thomson delighted the audience and his erudite introductions to the two guitar concertos he played, in exquisite partnership with the OSO, added to that delight. Not surprisingly, his interpretation of Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez begged an encore. He’s been playing this much loved concerto composed by Rodrigo in 1939 to celebrate the beauty of the gardens, fountains, views, and the people at the 18th century Palace of Aranjuez — the summer residence of Spanish monarch Charles IV — since his student days. The concerto’s recurring haunting theme in the second movement featured Lauris Davis on English horn, a double reed woodwind instrument with a sonorous sound lower than that of the oboe. Individual instruments and players shone throughout the evening, not least Karmen Ingram whose opening notes on bassoon set the mood for Canadian composer John Estacio’s Saudades (translated from the Portuguese as “longing.”) Saudades premiered Feb. 25, 1993 under the baton of Bramwell Tovey who, by coincidence, is the focus of NOCCA ‘s special fund-raising event on Feb. 12. It’s almost like ESP, as is the fact that the OSO and NOCCA both chose to salute the guitar during the same weekend at the PAC. And it’s worth mentioning that in PAC’s cloakroom gallery, currently brimming with local art, I overheard a comment to the effect that Vernon is a vibrant creative city pulsing within a small town. In the light of this past weekend’s concerts, I totally agree.

Julie White remembers what it was like to be a little girl growing up in the city and longing for a pony. “I can’t remember not ever wanting a horse, even though I hadn’t been around horses. I read everything I could find about horses,” she said. Her dream came true when the family moved from Vancouver to the Vernon area when she was 12 and she got her first horse, a chestnut with four white socks named Roger. “It was a dream come true. We lived in Coldstream and I got to know other kids who had horses and learned to ride,” said White. “It was a year before I could afford a saddle so I rode bareback. We had a tremendous amount of freedom and rode all over Coldstream Ranch and on the mountain trails. We made up our own horse shows and ribbons.” She has fond memories of the Vernon and District Riding Club and everything she learned from longtime members like Maida Rendell, June Osborn and George Beaton. White, who has been writing since she was a child, has just had her third and fourth books for youth published. Riding through Fire is a companion novel to her earlier books, Secret Pony and High Fences, while Under the Wire follows a young man determined to build a career in thoroughbred horse racing. The book calls on the experience of White’s husband, Robert, a former jockey. Riding Through Fire was inspired by the evacuation of the animals in the Silver Creek fires in 1998 and 2003. White and her husband own Long Road Farm near Armstrong where they breed, foal out, train, break, condition and

race horses with daughters Sorrel and Alix Schoenberger, who also compete internationally. When she finished school, White worked in broadcast and print journalism. She always kept a horse and along the way she got back with horse people. “All along, I was writing horse books and got more rejection than acceptance. At that time, horse books were not popular and it was difficult to get feedback,” said White. She met Robert at a horse show and

e just got our water bill for the last quarter of 2012. I was happy to find out that all those rain barrels and buckets really make a difference in the amount we are using. Jocelyne sewell I got some information from a B.C. government website, Living Water Smart, that I would like to share with you. Less than three per cent of municipally-treated water is actually used for drinking. The rest goes down the drain, down the toilet, or on our gardens. The average adult drinks only about 1.5 litres of water per day, and that includes water used in drinks such as coffee, tea

they started the farm together. She kept writing. “I was at a Spruce Meadows trade fair and I met a horse book author who encouraged me, so I kept writing,” she said. Her first book, The Secret Pony, was published by Sono Nis Press in 2003. “One of the greatest parts was working with editors who could help me improve what I was dong. I think a book is like a promising young horse who can learn skills and get better.” The Secret Pony was about a girl who yearned for a pony and made it happen. That was followed by High Fences, about competing on a budget. “Nothing can replace desire, in riding, in writing, in life,” she said. Now her days start at 5 a.m. with farm chores, then writing. On some days, she works at the Silver Creek Library. “Some people come to the library on horseback. I really like that.” She finds a lot to like about combining her love of horses and writing. “I love doing the school and library tours and talking to the young people who are reading my books. My first book was nominated for a Chocolate Lily Award, where the nominations are made by children and they vote and choose the winner. To be selected by the readership is the highest honour,” she said. “I’m always happy to get letters from readers. What I would say to writers, is to stay true to your dream. Practise like an athlete. Get feedback and think about if it applies. Constantly work on your skills and don’t take rejection personally.” White rides whenever she can and is working on a sequel to Under the Wire. Her books are available at The Paddock in Vernon, at independent bookstores, and at www.sononis.com or Amazon.com.

and juice. Canada’s per capita water consumption is 65 per cent above the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) average, second only to the U.S. Developing countries typically use 10 times less water than developed countries. An average garden hose pours out 20 litres of water per minute. A lot of water can be wasted when gardening or washing the car if you don’t turn it off. A running tap pours out seven-to-12 litres a minute. Turn them off whenever possible, put the plug in or catch the water you need in a glass or pan. A water saving toilet (six litres per flush) can save you up to 14 litres each time you flush. For the average family that’s 25,000 litres per year, with that water you could fill 25 hot tubs. Dripping taps are a major cause of wasted water and can also cause water damage in the

home. Fixing a dripping tap can save up to 300 litres of quality B.C. drinking water per week. In the summer, one mature pine tree needs about 20-to-40 litres of water per day. This water is taken up from the ground and then transpired (released into the air). Beef cattle need about 45 litres per day and dairy cattle need about 135 litres per day. These amounts increase by one and a half to two times on a hot day. In B.C. we use about 490 litres per person per day – not including industrial or agricultural use of water. Usually, in the home, toilets will use 30 percent and about another 30 percent is needed for bathing. B.C. residents use much more water than the Canadian average, which is currently about 330 litres per person per day. Our water use is also much higher than many other developed countries. By conserving

water, we reduce the need for new infrastructure like dams and water treatment plants. This will help avoid the negative impacts of new dams and save the community money. Generally it is much less expensive to conserve water than it is to get it from a new supply source. For every glass of water we save, we have to produce and treat one less glass from the environment. In 2006, we used the average of 388 litres per person and I didn’t have a garden. In 2010, we got a couple barrels and the average went to 294 litres per day. Last year with all the new barrels and a bit of extra work and a very large garden, we managed to bring it down to 199 litres. I would encourage everyone to get at least one rain barrel even if it is only to water the plants outside. Plants love rain water and gardens cannot live without it.

Cheat with quinoa

pparently this is the week when most of our New Year’s resolutions fail. Some of us will miss our exercise routine, just this once we say, some will enjoy a little sweet treat, just this once. Others will stop at a fast food place, just this once, because we’re in a cathi Litzenberger hurry; and so it goes. We fall back into the old routines just a mere 10 days before our new habit takes hold. When this happens the majority will make matters worse by beating themselves up for it, finding every excuse for failure, and eventually quitting altogether. Sounds familiar to me. Maybe we need new rules, especially with dietary restrictions. Perhaps picking a day when there are no rules will work? Eat a dessert, a muffin, a couple of cookies, or a slice of bread. Make your treats and choose recipes containing some good food value, like say, quinoa. Quinoa is a complete source of protein and contains all eight essential amino acids, is a complex  ( also known as a good) carbohydrate, and is high in fibre. It also provides riboflavin, calcium, vitamin E, iron and potassium, and is abundant in linolenic acid, the essential fatty acid said to benefit immune response. Gluten-free quinoa is technically not a grain, but tiny seeds harvested from the plant.  Today I’m offering two “treat� recipes that contain

kitchen wit & wisdom

quinoa. The first is a chocolate cake that is rich and delicious but contains much more food value than a regular cake recipe or mix. The second is a muffin recipe, perfect for breakfast or coffee break. Try them as an encouragement to stay on the straight and narrow of that resolution. Quinoa Chocolate Cake 2/3 cup uncooked quinoa 1-1/3 cups water ½ cup milk 4 eggs 1 tsp vanilla ž cup butter, melted and cooled 1-½ cups sugar 1-½ cups unsweetened cocoa powder 1 Tbsp baking powder ½ tsp salt Cook the quinoa in the water. To do this, add both ingredients to a pan, then bring the mixture to a boil. At this point, put the lid on, lower the heat and simmer for approx. 10 minutes. Shut off the heat and leave the pan on the burner to continue cooking slightly for an additional 10 minutes. Mix it somewhat with a fork and allow to cool completely. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an eight-inch springform pan. Line the bottom with parchment. Using a stand mixer put the eggs, vanilla and milk in a bowl. Add two cups of the cooked quinoa. Combine these ingredients, then add the butter. Blend until everything is smooth.  In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together. Add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and mix.  Place the mixture into the cake pan. Cook for approximately 50 minutes. It is done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (I found the cake took longer to bake

for me, as times vary with altitude.) Let the cake cool completely and once removed from the pan I covered the cake in a dark chocolate ganache (certainly not low cal or low fat, but company shouldn’t have to suffer, right?)  I’m sure we can find a suitable low-fat/low-cal substitute. Ganache ½ cup whipping cream 4 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped Put the cream into a saucepan and heat until scalding hot. Put the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and pour the hot cream over. Whisk until smooth. Let cool for two minutes and then pour over the cake. Blueberry Quinoa Muffins ½ cup whole wheat flour (or your flour of choice) ½ cup quinoa flour (or use another gluten-free flour) 1 cup cooked quinoa ½ cup lightly-packed brown sugar 2 teaspoons baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 1 egg ⅔ cup milk (I used buttermilk) Ÿ cup vegetable oil One heaping cup frozen blueberries (you can use fresh) Preheat your oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 12-muffin tin (or use cupcake liners) and set aside. Whisk together the whole wheat flour, quinoa flour, brown sugar, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl then stir in the cooked quinoa. In a separate bowl combine the oil, milk and egg then stir into the dry ingredients. Fold in the blueberries and spoon the batter into the muffin tin. Bake for about 21 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack before serving.

Vernon residents can walk in the shoes of the less fortunate even if it’s just for a few hours. On Feb. 23, the Upper Room Mission is hosting the Coldest Night of the Year, a five or 10-kilometre walk. “In winter, homelessness is a real issue,” said Linda Price, one of the event organizers. “People on the walk will have an idea of what it’s like to be cold. That’s what the homeless do, they just walk around.” Beyond creating awareness about homelessness in Vernon, the event will raise funds for a new sprinkler system at the mission, which provides meals and other programs to those in need. “This is a stopping place for people during the day,” said Price, adding that the sprinklers cost $100,000. Coldest Night of the Year is a national initiative and this is its first time in Vernon. “We want people to understand what it’s like to be in the shoes of the less fortunate,” said Eric Godard, a freshly retired National Hockey League player, who is getting involved in the local fundraiser. Teams and individuals can register for the walk at coldestnightoftheyear.org. Each adult member of a team is encouraged to raise $150 or there is a $25 registration fee. An information and registration booth will be at the Village Green Centre Saturday. “We want to make it a fun event,” said organizer Wilf Ovington. “We want people to dress up and have a good time.” Registration will start at 4 p.m. at the Upper Room Mission and the walk begins at 5 p.m. The half-way mark for the five-kilometre walk will be Vernon Alliance Church on 43rd Avenue. “We hope people will come with their kids and dogs,” said Lisa Froom, URM executive director. Both the five and 10-kilometre walks will end at the mission, where there food and activities. Besides participants, there is currently a need for team captains, volunteers and financial support.

The Landing’s Very Own...

News

Black Press

B.C. Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick has committed to a pair of key changes to his government’s fruit tree replant program to help ease growers’ transitions to higher-value crops. During his address Saturday in Penticton at the annual meeting of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association, Letnick announced he will remove the like-to-like requirement on producers that compels them to replant orchards with the same type of fruit. “Just like crops need to change, sometimes replant programs need to change,” Letnick said. “So should apple growers like to diversify their orchards by replanting with cherries, they will be able to apply for the program. And so will other growers interested in replanting with different types of fruit trees.” That should help build a “stronger, more sustainable tree fruit sector,” he added. The current $2-million replant program was announced in May and, like others, lasts only as long as the money does, which creates uncertainty and has prompted fruit growers to call for the establishment of a permanent version. Letnick, the MLA for Kelowna-Mission, pledged to work on that too. “You have my commitment… to work as your minister of agriculture to make this a reality,” he said. “I’ll be working to come up with a regular, annual, sustainable, bankable, reliable replant program so we don’t have to go to the finance minister every year for year-end dollars.” Letnick said ministry staff will begin working with the BCFGA next month to develop guidelines to support both changes. He confirmed after his speech, however, that there is no funding in place for a permanent replant program.

JOE FRIES/WESTERN NEWS

During his keynote address Saturday to the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association in Penticton, Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick committed to a pair of key changes to the province’s tree replant program. Nonetheless, BCFGA president Jeet Dukhia said he was “very pleased” and “growers are very happy” with the minister’s announcement. Dukhia expects the

current replant program will hand out about $900,000 this year and the balance the following year. He said that a $1.5-million annual commitment to a per-

manent plan would be ideal. At that level of funding, the industry “will be pretty competitive” in five years, Dukhia said, adding old orchards with 600 trees per acre could be replanted with newer varieties at a density of about 3,000 trees per acre. He also noted that although some growers are having trouble getting their hands on new trees to plant, a permanent program would provide nurseries with the assurance they need to ensure a stable supply. Dukhia added that even with government assistance, replanting still costs growers plenty. “A grower spends $30,000 to replant an acre. Out of $30,000, he’s getting a $7,000 grant. So you have to appreciate the grower’s spending the majority of the money from his pocket.”

Kindale builds relationships Morning Star Staff

Measures are being taken to assist individuals with developmental disabilities. Kindale Developmental Centre has named Henry Sundquist as community developer, and his role will be to support common interests with community groups and worked to build a culture of respectful relationships. “In this new role, Henry will continue to help Kindale build partnerships in areas of affordable housing, food security, and transportation,” said Sue Phillips, Kindale presiSundquist dent. “He will also continue to build professional development opportunities for Kindale’s staff who are instrumental in supporting and sustaining inclusive opportunities for the individuals we serve.” Sundquist, who has retired as Kindale’s executive director, feels re-energized through this opportunity. “I look forward to expanding Kindale’s existing partnerships and forging new relationships to make our communities better for all,” he said. “A great example is the housing we are providing in the new Lydia Boss Centre in Armstrong. Anyone who fits the sustainable housing criteria may apply for the one, two or three bedroom units. It is not just for folks with disabilities.” Kindale provides a variety of services for more than 300 individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

Condors swoop Classic title Morning Star Staff

The Duchess Park Condors upended the Maroons 78-48 in Saturday night’s final of the 13th annual Fulton Senior Boys Basketball Corporate Classic. MVP Montel Lindgren flushed 16 points for the Condors, who ruled the boards with Fulton’s 6-foot4, 205-pound forward Austin Richardson out with shin splints. “They are a very good team, but without Austin, we didn’t have any inside or outside presence, so we didn’t match up well with them,” said Fulton head coach Dale Olson. Guard Mike Rouault (14) and all-star forward Clayton Mottus (12) paced the Maroons. Guard Clark Richardson of Fulton was also an all-star. The VSS Panthers went 1-2 at the eight-team Robert Bateman Timberwolves senior boys Winter Classic, losing 79-69 to the T-Wolves Saturday. Panther MVP Mitchell Pepper dialed up 21 points, while Chris Inscho sank 13 and Andy Hladik canned 11. Shelby Hartwig grabbed 17 rebounds.

Anytime you have three teammates up for B.C. Hockey League’s Gongshow Player of the Week, it usually means good things are happening. That was the case for the Vernon Vipers, as they collected four of six points, narrowly missing a three-game Vancouver Island road sweep after falling 1-0 to the Victoria Grizzlies in a Sunday matinee. The 14-20-0-7 Snakes brushed back the Cowichan Valley Capitals 3-1 a night earlier in Duncan. Newcomer Mason Blacklock received POW honours after turning in consecutive first-star efforts, starting with a four-point showing in Friday’s 6-4 win over the Nanaimo Clippers. The White Rock product followed that with a goal and an assist against the Caps. “He’s only going to get better,” said Vipers’ head coach Jason Williamson. “The character is starting to shine through with that kid. He took a pretty good hit (from Victoria’s Brett Hartscamp) and was still able to bounce back and was pretty good after that.” POW honourable mentions went to Andrew Tegeler (six points, second star selection), and netminder Austin Smith.

ing players so this is a big game for us,” said Knights’ head coach Kris Mallette. “Our forwards are more dynamic; theirs are hardworking and greasy. We match up pretty good.” North Okanagan (28-11-1-2) edged the last-place Chase Heat

4-3 Saturday night before 200 fans at Art Holding Memorial Arena. The Knights outshot the Heat 47-18 and spotted them an early 2-0 lead before levelling the score with goals by Matty Saharchuk (21st) and Mac Ferner (7th) late in the first. Connor Richards (7th) and Mat Lambert (17th) registered Knight snipes in the second period. Shelby Kostyshen, Michael Rand and Marc Mackenzie countered for Chase (9-28-3-2). The Knights, who stuffed the last-overall Grand Forks Border Bruins 5-2 the night before, host the Beaver Valley Nitehawks (2812-3-1) Friday night (7:30). Lambert drew the assist on Ferner’s equalizer with 28 seconds left in the first period. The 18-year-old Vernon rookie has 43 points, tied for second on the team with Saharchuk. “He’s done a fantastic job for the most part,” said Mallette. “He’s been one of our most consistent forwards.” Austin Buzzell recorded the win in Chase. He’s 12-4 with a 2.68 GAA.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

IS IT THE DEAL FOR HIGH OR FOR LOW? In “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” Commander Deanna Troi said, “Higher emotions are what separate us from the lower orders of life. Higher emotions ... and table manners.” This week we are looking at defenders leading high or low cards from various holdings. The general principle is to lead low from length when you have at least one honor in that suit. With no honor, you lead an unnecessarily high card. But, as I mentioned yesterday, the most common exception occurs when you lead partner’s suit. Then, if you have not supported that suit, giving length information is more important than strength

information. In this example, what should West lead against two spades when he has or has not raised hearts? Should West bid two hearts? It is a borderline decision. The pluses are showing support and some values, and perhaps making North’s rebid more awkward. The minuses are the scant values and the lack of a heart honor; if North becomes the declarer, East might make a losing heart lead. If West has not supported hearts, he should lead the three: low from length. But if he has raised, he should start with the nine: top of nothing. Moving on, how can EastWest defeat two spades? The defenders must take two hearts, two diamonds and

two clubs. And this requires getting the diamond tricks established before South can discard a diamond from the dummy on his heart jack. East should win the first trick and shift to the diamond queen, which is easier to find when West has raised hearts and led the nine to deny an honor.

(Irvin) Bruce Allen

January 12, 1947 – January 18, 2013 It is with great sadness that the family of Bruce Allen announces he passed away peacefully at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on January 18th at the age of 66. Bruce is survived by his children, Melanie (Chris) and Steven, as well as their mother Joan, who remained Bruce’s close and treasured friend. Bruce will also be missed by his brother, Stan (Marilyn), sister-in-law Marney, in-laws Frank (Kathy) and Mary (Liam), and many nieces, nephews and friends. He was pre-deceased by his parents, Bert and Bertha, and siblings, Gerry and Mona. Born in Enderby, Bruce moved to Vernon in 1958. The varied opportunities aơorded in this environment fulƤlled Bruce’s diverse interests, and so, after graduating from Vernon Secondary School he remained and built a life here. Bruce’s entire career was spent working as an accountant. He had an incredible work ethic, and was rewarded greatly through the loyalty of his clients, many of whom remained with him until the end. Throughout his youth and adult life, Bruce enjoyed organized sports. He loved both the athletic and social components of team sports such as hockey, baseball, ƪag football, bowling and golf. He made many lasting friendships and had many happy memories of his adventures in sports. Bruce’s most treasured past-times involved working with his hands. He devoted many hours to labours of love - renovating his homes and building structures for his children such as ramps, ice rinks and doll houses. Outdoors, Bruce was rarely seen without a construction or gardening tool. His gardens were his most prized possessions; he planted and tended to them with such care, and was enormously proud to tour friends and family through the rows, pointing out how well his fruits and vegetables were growing. Nowhere was Bruce more content than at his cabin on Okanagan Lake where all of his favourite things came together. Out at the cabin he could build, garden, play games, swim, socialize, and sit by a campƤre into the night. Surrounded by his beloved pets, family, and lifelong friends, Bruce cherished his time on the lake above all else. A celebration of Bruce’s life will be held on Thursday, January 24 , 2013 at 1:00 p.m. in the Tea Room at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home in Vernon BC. th

As an ešpression of sympathy, donations may be made to ISMR, a non-proƤt organization that advocates for individuals aơected by the same family of disorders as Bruce’s son, Steven. Information about how to make a donation can be found at: http://www.ismrd.org/help_us/make_a_donation Arrangements have been entrusted to: PLEASANT VALLEY FUNERAL HOME (250) 542-4333 Condolences may be oơered at pleasantvalleyƢ.com

Donald Wells We announce with regret and relief the passing of Donald Lewis Wells at Parkview Place in Enderby on January 18, 2013. Don was born on September 27, 1928 in the Enderby Hospital and lived most of his life in the area. He was the grandson of two of Grindrod’s early pioneer families; Emma and William Monk, and Jemima and George Wells. As an only child he was surrounded with aunts, uncles, and cousins and found many ways to amuse himself. His father passed away when Don was just 15 years old. From then on, he farmed with his mother, Helen, along with the help of valued neighbours. Don was always community minded. Throughout his life he sat on the boards of many organizations including the Grindrod Farmers Hall, Grindrod Park, Enderby Hospital, Parkview Place, Enderby Museum, and was one of the early members of the Grindrod Credit Union, later serving as President. In his younger years, Don was kept busy most weekends playing saxophone with the Enderby City Band and later on the Swingsters Dance Band. He starred in many productions put on by the Grindrod Players Club. He, along with Gordon 9olker, was a founding member of the Grindrod Airforce Àying club which is still a weekly Sunday event for it’s members. Don leaves behind his devoted wife Irene of 58 years, as well as his four sons Randy(Sherry), Rick (Jean), Ron (Cindy), and Rod. He also leaves his seven grandchildren Ryan, Brandi, Devan, Keegan, Kaylee, Holly, and Sarah as well as four great granddaughters Rylyn, Elianna, Kaia, and Anika. He will be greatly missed and long remembered by family and friends. The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the doctors and staff of Parkview Place for their kindness and care during his stay. A family service will be held at Grindrod Gospel Church on Saturday January 26, 2013 at 11am followed by a Memorial tea from 1pm to 3pm at the Enderby Drill Hall.

IN LOVING MEMORY

November 20, 1925 ~ January 14, 2013 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our father and grandfather, Ted on 14 January 2013 after a brief illness. Predeceased by his wife of 60 years, Dorothy and his daughter Geraldine Bowker; Ted is survived by his daughter Lexie Fitz-Gerald of Vernon, granddaughter Tara Wakefield of Brandon, Manitoba and son-in-law Harry Bowker also of Vernon. Born on November 20, 1925 in North Vancouver, BC, Ted’s journey led him to join the Canadian Armed Forces in 1943 and he eventually found himself at the Vernon Army Camp. While stationed in Vernon, Ted met Dorothy Asp whom he married in 1947. Ted and Dorothy celebrated the birth of their two daughters, Geraldine in 1947 and Rae “Lexie” in 1951. Ted’s 30 year career included duty with the UN Peacekeeping Forces in Egypt in 1959 and a posting to Germany in 1967. On their retirement in 1973 Ted and Dorothy made their home in Sechelt, BC where they built their first house near Ted’s parents. In 1988 they made their final move back to Dorothy’s beloved Vernon where they were joined by Lexie in 1995, Geri and her husband Harry in 2007. Ted was a loyal member of the Royal Canadian Legion for 41 years during which he proudly served on the executive, as well as the Poppy Committee. His other memberships included the RCEME Association, The Lord Strathcona’s Horse Regimental Association and the Fraternal Order of Eagles.

It is with great sadness that we announce that Else Lieselotte Doerr passed away on January 14th, 2013 in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital, after a long and courageous battle with health issues, at the age of 82 years. Else was born on May 30th, 1930 in Sandhausen, Germany and immigrated to Canada in 1974, residing in Edmonton, Alberta. It was here that both she and her late husband, Harri established a flourishing painting company. After their retirement in 1989 they moved to Vernon, B.C. Else will be sadly missed and always lovingly remembered by her four children; two sons, Harry (Hannelore) and Helmut (Inge) of Germany; and two daughters, Henny (Art) Rahn of Vernon, B.C. and Marita (Roland) Allenbach of Sherwood Park, Alberta; her six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren in Germany and Canada; two sisters, Anne (Joachim) Steininger and Marianne (Roland) Vonthron, both in Germany; and many extended family members and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harri Heinz Doerr on March 22nd, 2002. Cremation preceded a Celebration Of Else’s Life which will be held at The Church Of God, 4312-25th Street, on Saturday, January 26th, 2013 at 11:00 A.M. with Pastor Gary Glanz officiating. The family wish to express their heartfelt thanks to the nurses in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital ICU for the wonderful care they gave to Else during her final days.

For over 50 years, Kal Tire has expanded steadily from its humble roots in Vernon, BC to become Canada’s largest independent tire dealer with over 240 Kal Tire outlets across Canada, 14 retread facilities, 2 OTR plants and 4 warehouses. Our network of service locations spans from Vancouver Island to the Quebec border. Kal Tire’s Mining Tire Group goes even further. We currently operate in over 150 mine sites with 35 in Canada, and all others in over 19 countries across 5 continents.

She was predeceased by her mother Mary Dantzer (December 2012) her father Vince Dantzer( 2001) and her sister Kim Dantzer Higdon(1992). BeĆŠy Jean is survived by her loving husband of 30 years Arnie, and her two sons, Alex Goodwin(BriĆŠany), and Luke Goodwin along with her granddaughter Josie. She will be dearly missed by her brothers and sisters; Alex Dantzer, Mark Dantzer (Jan,) Mary-Jo O’Keefe(David), Pat KeĆŠerling(Jim), Ruth Dantzer, Cathy Krauss(Doug) and Tamara Reiley(Mike).

As a life long athlete, a marathoner, a disciplined coach and instructor, BeĆŠy Jean modelled sport and access to recreaĆ&#x;on. Her passion for an acĆ&#x;ve lifestyle was unparalleled and she passed this on to all who had the good fortune to meet her. She met the love of her life Arnie while working in Fort Smith, and followed him back to Nova ScoĆ&#x;a for the ÄŽrst Ć&#x;me in 1979. They were married in Vernon, then spent the next number of years in BriĆ&#x;sh Columbia’s northern communiĆ&#x;es growing together, nurturing their family and developing their lifelong friendships. Home was their common passion, and much sacriÄŽce was made to make theirs special.

UBC campus leads the country in grants Morning Star Staff

UBC’s Okanagan campus leads the country in an important

category of sponsored research. Since the Engage Grants (EG) program

was introduced by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada in

2010, UBC has been the biggest EG user of any Canadian university, with the Okanagan

campus receiving a disproportionately large percentage of those grants.

Researchers at UBC’s Okanagan campus have received $1,363,254 for 55 projects since the

start of the EG program. As of January, the campus has acquired $474,362 for 19 projects during NSERC’s 201213 fiscal year, which ends March 31. UBC has received $4,472,509 for 184 projects since the beginning of the program, with this year’s institutional total reaching $1,893,878 for 77 projects. “The NSERC Engage program really suits researchers who are energetic, flexible, and have a lot of initiative and UBC’s Okanagan campus has a lot of these researchers,” said Miriam Grant, vice provost of Research, at UBCO. “Our campus is nimble and dedicated to including our community partners in cutting-edge research that solves the everyday problems they face. “These Engage Grants have resulted in exciting collaborations within our community and have supported hundreds of students who will one day be first-class academics and business leaders themselves.” Engage Grants are designed to give Canadian companies access to the unique knowledge and expertise available at Canadian universities. As well, these grants foster the development of new research partnerships between academic researchers and companies by supporting short-term research and development projects aimed at solving company-specific problems in the natural sciences and engineering fields. A current research initiative at UBC’s Okanagan campus supported by the Engage Grants program is being done by UBCO associate professor Michael Russello. The project is exploring geonomic solutions for guiding production of Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. hatchery-raised kokanee and improving health of native stocks.
