Higher parking fees drive concerns RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Some merchants believe customers could be chased out of downtown Vernon. The City of Vernon has hiked rates for parking meters, the parkade and parking lots as part of the 2013 budget. “I have concerns about how it will impact commerce,” said Ruth Hoyte, Downtown Vernon Association Ruth Hoyte president. Hoyte says the increases may be enough, in some cases, to divert residents to other parts of Vernon to shop instead of going downtown. Parking meter rates will climb from 50 cents to $1 an hour in late February or early March.

Monthly flat parking lot fees will increase from $35 and $21, in some cases, to $65 a month. At the parkade, monthly parking will go from $55 to $65 a month except for rooftop parking which will go from $25 to $35 a month. Parking tickets paid within 14 days will jump from $5 to $10. Hoyte suggests the city is missing the big picture. “It (increases) doesn’t resolve the issue of occupancy on 30th Avenue,” she said. “Nor have they dealt with the elimination of parking stalls.” All of the parking rate increases combined will create an additional $576,360 in revenue for the city. “Where does that additional money go?” said Hoyte. “It doesn’t go into improving parking. It appears to go into general revenue.” Officials with the city are defending their

Most

actions. “We want downtown to be vibrant but the rates haven’t been increased for 10 years in some cases and this brings them in line with other communities,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. Sawatzky says higher parking rates could encourage more people to take transit and the additional revenue will assist with the city’s financial challenges, including infrastructure. “A major part of the operating budget is the service we provide for automobiles, whether it is roads or parking lots,” he said. “It’s part of a balanced process to deal with all of the issues before us.” In terms of claims that parking strategies downtown are not being addressed, Sawatzky disagrees. “There are city-owned parking lots that are not full now,” he said. “There is existing parking that can be used now.” The new rates are in line with the cost of a

transit pass ($53 a month), what other communities charge and the cost of retaining land for parking. Other actions taken in the 2013 budget include a $35,000 feasibility study for the airport runway, a $30,000 business plan to expand the longevity of the cemetery and energy-efficient upgrades at several buildings as part of carbon reduction. Scrapping the Communities in Bloom program will save $9,100. There will continue to be no charge for infant car seat installations by Vernon firefighters. “We are enhancing some services and adjusting some fees to better reflect costs of services,” said Sawatzky. “Overall, these decisions allow for 2.3 per cent in additional taxation revenue. There is a reduced impact on overall property taxes by increases to fees for services. The real impact to the home owner of a typical or average residential property is about $56.”

Dreams come true richard rolke

Morning Star Staff

Big smiles are ready to take flight. Wendy’s Dreamlift Day takes place at all Wendy’s restaurants in the Okanagan Wednesday. The funds help the Sunshine Foundation take children with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses to Disneyland for a day. “It’s an absolutely magical day,” said Steve Tuck, with the Sunshine Foundation. This is the 19th year for the event and it has become a tradition across the valley. “People are patient, wait in line and brag about how long they have been going to Dreamlift,” said Tuck. All of the profits and staff and management wages Wednesday will go to the foundation. Last year, a record $114,276 was raised, pushing the cumulative total since 1995 to $1.1 million. “The support of the community is unparalleled,” said Akbal Mund, an area partner with Wendy’s. “Every year, more and more people want to get involved because somewhere along the line, they know a child will benefit from their generosity.” Mund has high praise for his staff who give

up their wages for the day and former employees who volunteer. “They understand what the cause is for. It’s a big event for them,” he said. As part of Dreamlift Day, local dignitaries will be volunteering in the dining room and kitchen, while Capt. Bob Peterson, of the Orange County Sheriffs Department, will be on scene in Vernon. The sheriffs chaperone the children when in Disneyland. Mund, a father of two, has been on two of the flights to Disneyland and he has seen the positive impact it has had on some special children and their families. “It hits you right in the heart,” he said. “The trip provides the kids with an opportunity to go to Disneyland and the parents get to know that their kids will be OK on their own.” Wendy’s and the Sunshine Foundation want everyone in the Interior to know that they can refer a child who may be eligible for the trip to the Magic Kingdom. “It’s a great opportunity promote this to social workers, doctors and others and let them know about the program,” said Tuck. “It’s also a great chance for a child to get out of this world for a day.” The next scheduled flight to Disneyland is in late 2013.

Supporting the community is a family affair in Lumby richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Lumby is in the Kineshanko blood so it was natural that the family would rally behind the community. Members of the family gathered Wednesday to present $10,000 to the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre’s Legacy Fund. “I strongly believe in the need for social services,” said Joanne Kineshanko, owner of Kineshanko Logging and a former mayor who raised her four children in Lumby. Most of her 10 grandchildren also live there. The $10,000 was the initial payment on what Kineshanko expects will be a minimum $25,000 donation over five years. The donation is in memory of Kineshanko’s husband Terry, who died in 2006. The Legacy Fund campaign’s goal is to raise $800,000 over five years.

Working together, the campaign can succeed.” Gay Jewitt, WCRC executive director, welcomes the participation of the Kineshanko family. “Joanne’s business, political and community development background, along with her genuine compassion and caring for families and the community, has made her an excellent Whitevalley supporter,” said Jewitt. “The contribution to the campaign speaks to the family’s commitment to the community.” WCRC services include counselling for adults and families, addictions counselling, afterschool activities, Kid’s Zone in Cherryville, summer day camps, toddler programs, cooking class-

es for those on a budget, seniors drop-in, health information for seniors, Good Food Box and Internet access. It was decided to create an endowment fund to support operations because government grants are uncertain and the centre almost closed a few years ago.

There were only 2,300 spawning kokanee reported in Wood Lake in 2012.

Dwindling fish stock forces new restrictions richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Drastic measures are being taken to protect a recreational fishery. The provincial government has virtually brought kokanee fishing to a halt on Wood Lake after extremely low spawning numbers over the last two years. “It’s a wake-up call,” said Paul Askey, fisheries biologist. “I’m sure people will be disappointed but most will understand the need for short-term pain for longterm gain.” While fishing was previously allowed year-round, it will now only be allowed between April 15 to May 31. Each angler will have a daily quota of two kokanee. Wood Lake has been known as one of the top kokanee fisheries in the region. However, in 2011, the species was impacted by a high algae bloom that reduced the amount of oxygen in the lake.

the ITALIAN

In 2001, there were 6,300 spawners, far below the average of about 14,000. In 2012, that number dropped to 2,300. Acoustic trawl surveys indicate that 2013 and 2014 could also see low spawner returns, but a full seasonal harvest is expected by 2015 provided conditions remain favourable. “As long we reduce the harvest now, returns should bounce back,” said Askey. Given current conditions, the Oceola Fish and Game Club had called for a complete ban on kokanee fishing on Wood Lake. Askey doesn’t believe that is required. “We have a lot of data and because of that, we can afford to be more active with managing the population,” he said. “By opening a short period of time for fishing, we will get some important data. We can see how we react over the long-term and keep the fishery healthy.”

Pet store opposes breeding ban richard rolke Morning Star Staff

A Vernon business owner is concerned pet stores are being unfairly portrayed. Two people recently asked Vernon city council to ban the retail sale of dogs, cats and rabbits provided by backyard breeders. “Pet stores are not the reason for puppy mills. There are online services available for that,” said Lisa Badach, owner of AJ’s Pets and Things since 2000. Badach says some of the animals on her premises come from families relinquishing their pets or she allows friends and local residents to use her store to find their puppies and kittens a home. “These are people who are local,” she said, adding that she is confident about the care the animals are receiving. “We do not have a list of breeders to call when we want puppies or kittens.” Badach also says that the sale of animals is not a big part of her business and there were just three dogs sold last year. “Stopping local sales will not prevent citizens of Vernon from driving to the next municipality if they want to purchase a puppy or kitten from a retail store or from looking to other sources to get what they want,” she said.

Vernon council is considering its options when it comes to the breeding of dogs, cats and rabbits. “This moves business elsewhere and does nothing to educate consumers on how to make good choices.” While opposed to a ban, Badach does believe there is a role for the City of Vernon to play. “If there is a problem with breeders, let’s get them licensed,” she said. “That would give the city the right to go in and inspect premises. Let’s create solutions and be an example for other commu-

nities.” Badach will appear

before Vernon council Monday.

Coldstream debates holiday staffing levels Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

A decision to keep staff on the clock over Christmas in Coldstream could be revisited. The public works department was closed during the recent Christmas break, which resulted in $550,000 in overtime wages paid to cover 18.5 hours of work. The work, which included plowing, snow sanding and fixing water service leaks, took place during what would have been regular business hours (if the office had been open). There were actually more than 100 hours of staff time required during the break – the majority of which took place on weekend or statutory holiday time. “Those 18.5 hours were now double time,” said Michael Stamhuis, Coldstream’s chief administrative officer. “Had we staffed those days we would’ve had that paid out at regular pay.” Considering that the amount was far lower than anticipated, one local politician believes the district could save taxpayers money by keeping the office open over the holidays.

morning star file photo

The District of Coldstream was closed over the Christmas holiday but paid out $550,000 in overtime to handle snow clearing and repairing water lines. “I think that $550,000 is still a substantial amount of money,” said Coun. Pat Cochrane. “It definitely saves the district money if we keep the public works open.” Following concerns raised before Christmas about overtime costs, council recommended that the public works depart-

ment remain open for regular business days during the 2013 Christmas break (it has historically been closed during that time). While Cochrane would like to see that recommendation remain, council may revisit the decision. “They’ve opened the door to look at it,”

said Stamhuis. Meanwhile Coldstream’s mayor, Jim Garlick, says the decision has already been made to open the department next Christmas and he would prefer not to revisit the issue. While there could possibly be some cost savings to the district to keep the department open, Stamhuis says there are a number of other factors to consider. “It’s staff morale,” said Stamhuis, as the employees have historically received the time off. “The staff do other things too, on their own that they don’t necessarily charge for. “Is the district better off if we close the office and accept some other benefit or should we keep it open and avoid those costs?” A report looking back at the hours worked during the break over the last three years will be coming forward to council members, which could lead to further discussion and debate “There’s not an easy answer,” said Stamhuis.

Back, Neck, and Hip Pain: Catch it Early! Spinal pain is often noticed weeks, months, and sometimes years after the underlying problem actually began. Pain is like a ringing fire alarm that is triggered once the nerves are adequately irritated, which sometimes takes years. The key lies in identifying what the underlying problem is—what’s causing the pain. There are dozens of tiny spinal joints in your back and neck. They can become misaligned, or subluxated, by all kinds of stressors: poor posture, falls from playground equipment or down stairs, sport tackles, long hours of sitting, car accidents, and even the birthing process (often called “birth trauma,” and for good reason!).

Defence tactics are among the skills learned at the RCMP Jean Minguy Memorial Youth Academy, which has extended its application deadline to Friday.

RCMP academy empowers youth Morning Star Staff

The deadline for students interested in attending the 14th annual RCMP Jean Minguy Memorial Youth Academy in Vernon has been extended to Friday. The academy gives students a taste of what life at RCMP depot in Regina is like. Career programs have designed this work experience program for students in Grades 11 and 12 in the North and South Okanagan. “It promotes positive values, respectful behaviours and leadership qualities in youth, while in a police academy environment,” said Vernon RCMP school liaison officer Const. Kathy Szoboticsanec. “Students receive instruction of the law, defence tactics, traffic studies and a variety of other topics.” The youth academy is dedicated to Const. Jean Minguy, a police officer in Vernon who tragically lost his life while on duty in June 2005. “Past students have said that this is the most rewarding work experience they have ever had,” said Tom Williamson, Vernon school district career programs coordinator. “It is designed to challenge but to leave the students feeling empowered.” Even after they’ve graduated from the academy and from high school, academy attendees want to help out. “I have students that continue to come back and assist and want to give back,” said Szoboticsanec.

“Many are on the path to becoming police officers while there are those that give back to the community by volunteering and working with the safe communities unit. “It is a win-win situation for all involved. We have grown with our community and continue to be supported by many local businesses and supporters.” The academy runs Sunday, April 28 to Saturday, May 4 at the Vernon Army Camp. Applications can be found on the School District 22 website, under Career Programs, or by contacting the career coordinator at any high school. Any questions can be directed to Szoboticsanec at the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171.

Spinal inflammation often begins painlessly and is your body’s attempt to heal the irritation. As the inflammation mounts, and more and more damage is done by the grinding pressure of the misalignment, chemicals are released by the surrounding tissue to irritate the nerves for one important reason—to cause the damaged area to hurt so that you become aware of the problem! A common treatment for spinal pain is usually painkillers or antiinflammatories, chemicals that serve as nerve blocks so your brain can no longer register the damage happening within your body. Sadly, many pain sufferers accept this quick-fix answer while in the meantime, the underlying spinal damage worsens. Long-term spinal inflammation can lead to osteoarthritis, which further damages the spinal joints. Chiropractors are trained in spine, nerve, and joint health. We help by retraining the spine to a more optimal position, freeing nerves and joints of damaging stress so your body can heal properly. If these problems are caught early, years of chronic pain may be avoided. Chiropractor’s often see disillusioned patients who are tired of taking drugs, their tests all clear, and are living in pain not knowing where to turn. Maybe something is causing the problem that can be overcome. Written by Dr. Elliot Lysyk

His and her movies

ue is dying to see Les Miserables. I can’t wait to see Django Unchained. She wants to see Django as much as she wants to eat giant sea slugs, and I want to sit through the three hours of Les Mis as much as I want to help her shop for purses. “Have you seen the commercial for it? It’s all blood and gore and guns and death,” she says. I say, “That’s why it’s called ‘miserable,’ isn’t it?” “You know I’m talking about Django. Les Mis is a musical.” “Yeah, a musical about blood and gore and guns and death. The only difference is they get to sing as they die, which is just Jim Mullen dragging it out, if you ask me.” Once again, we are at an impasse over which movie to see. The ones she likes to watch are torture for me; the ones I like, she thinks are disgusting. “What about Lincoln? she asks. “Everyone says it’s really great. Too bad he dies at the end.” “Now you’ve wrecked it for me. You’re supposed to say spoiler alert before you blurt out the end of a movie. I’ll never be able to enjoy it now. How would you like it if I told you what happened to the Titanic before you saw the film?” “I knew what was going to happen. If knowing the ending of a movie spoils it for you, it must not be a very good movie. Everyone knows what happens at the end of Romeo and Juliet, but they still want to see it,” Sue says. “Well, don’t tell me. I haven’t seen it yet.” It’s not just movies. We have a Downton Abbey gap in our house, too. Sue’s seen all the episodes twice. I haven’t been able to get through a single one. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s that you have to watch them in order or you miss everything. I never saw the first episode, so I’m lost.

ThE VillAgE idioT

You don’t have to watch the James Bond or Jackie Chan movies in order. You can just dive in any old time and they still make sense. I don’t know when our tastes started to diverge. Maybe we never liked all the same things and just now — many, many years later — we’re willing to say so. When you’re dating, you go the extra mile and do things you may not like to do just to be with the other person. On the fourth date you can say things like, “Sure, I’d love to come with you to shop for fabric remnants.” In the second year of marriage, she might say, “Sure, go out drinking with your high school buddies. Go have some fun.” Then, after 30 years, you find yourself watching different television shows in different rooms. I’m watching the Billy Bob Thornton festival on Spike TV, and she’s watching extreme home makeovers on HGTV. Maybe cable TV has done this to us. Back when there were only three channels, we almost had to watch the same shows together. I mean, can you remember what was on opposite the Ed Sullivan Show? Neither can I. It’s not as if we disagree about every film. Neither of us wants to go to teenage slasher movies with names like the Chilling, the Grabbing or the Spooking. If there’s a gerund in the title, we pretty much know it’s not for the Ageing. We don’t have knock-down drag-outs over the latest gross-out comedy, because neither of us has any interest in it. We avoid anything that might attract small children, so there’s no need for discussion. So we end up double-dating with a couple we know who have the same problems we do agreeing on a movie. Sue and Sally will go see Les Mis at the multiplex, while Bob and I will go down the hall to Django, and we’ll all meet at a restaurant for dinner. Bob and I just hope it’s not that health food place they dragged us to last time. You can contact Jim Mullen at JimMullenBooks. com

Local motorists will be digging a little deeper to visit downtown thanks to the city’s decision to double parking fees. Vernon’s 2013 budget calls for meter rates to increase to $1 an hour (currently they are 50 cents an hour). In the big scheme of things, a couple extra quarters likely won’t break the bank for many. And an argument can be made for the increase because rates haven’t changed in 10 years. Monthly lot fees will also be going up anywhere from an extra $10 to $44. But when you compare Vernon’s parking rates to other cities, particularly the larger centres, we’ve got it pretty good. The Canadian national average for monthly parking is $241 (according to a Colliers International survey), with Calgary nearly double that at $456. Those numbers definitely add more fuel to the argument to ditch the car for a bus pass. While Vernon is cheap compared to others, the proposed new rate will surpass its larger neighbour Kelowna – which only charges 50 cents an hour for on-street parking (City of Kelowna website). A major concern around the local increase is that customers may be driven out of the downtown core. Why pay to park and shop downtown when you can go to the mall, or a big box store and park for free? If that happens, it will in turn hurt small businesses, so it’s no wonder the Downtown Vernon Association is fighting the increases. If downtown merchants lose enough business, they could be forced to close their doors – which will in turn hurt the entire city. So while the combined rate increases will add nearly $600,000 to city coffers, the effect could prove to be much more costly to the community.

ave Our Lakes Society would like to point out to the members of Vernon council that the discussions they are having regarding the use of the sewage outfall pipe into Okanagan Lake is a waste of taxpayers money and their time. Another example either of failure on their part to make themselves familiar with the legislation or failure of staff to keep them informed of the details covering what they can and cannot do with the effluent according to the Ministry of Environment file Me12215. . There are many conditions which have to be met before the city can apply for permission to discharge. It should be compulsory reading for every council member. To the taxpayer, it may seem to be a way of doing something that no one will notice. SOL hopes this is not case because the waste water we are talking about is a precious commodity and as

carnival concern Have any other Morning Star readers noticed that this year’s Winter Carnival theme is an apt adjective for Carnival’s ongoing support of a program that crowns queens and princesses to represent our city? Seriously, could we now join this century and at least move to ambassadors, male and female, to reflect the constantly stated and passionately defended purpose of this excellence program? e. Fraser community investment As vital as ball fields, running tracks, art galleries and even water systems are to Vernon, they aren't investments in our community. They are debts to be repaid by the health of the community in the future. That's a good thing. It's important to remember that investments occur when a community puts its financial and human resources towards its present and future needs. You can't buy that with a loan. You actually have to invest new money locally, such as the millions of dollars that flow out annually into lottery tickets, and the billions of trust fund investments that local citizens have made in the economies of Toronto, Ohio, London,

the population increases, it will supplement the current lake supplies. And just imagine swimmers being confronted by signs which would read ''swim at your own risk." Hardly a tourist attraction? And do not talk about how safe it is. Was it safe in Kelowna with its hundreds of cases of cryptosporidium. Kelowna dumps treated sewage into the lake. We commend Councillors Nicol, Spiers and O'Keefe for their comments but wonder what Councillor Cunningham was thinking when she said global warming may prevent irrigation being used. One would think the opposite is true. Without belabouring the point further, it is obvious that the ministry will have to become involved. This is the second time SOL has had to point out that their instructions are not being met. alan Hill, save our lakes

Berlin, California. Currently, our community invests heavily in the industries of other communities, from which it receives valuable dividends, off of which many of us live. In terms of investing in community, though, there is plenty of room for the expansion of the credit union model, which more frequently sees local money invested locally. Here's another thing. In 2010, lottery expenditures in Canada were $120 per household. Including games of chance and casinos, the total is $309 per household. There are 23,000 households in Greater Vernon. Supposing we are average (past figures say we are), that's $7,107,000 per year. At that rate, after three years without lottery tickets, we could pretty much have the investments of running tracks, art galleries, and a museum all paid for. That would be an investment. Borrowing money is a debt. Sometimes you have to do it. We hope that our debts can bring future investment, which will more than pay for them when they are due. If we don't go in with a clear and workable plan for develop-

ing that investment, we are setting ourselves up for a big surprise, such as the Wesbild Centre's inability to attract the events it was built for. To do so again would be to again squander our true community capital: community itself, and hope. Harold rhenisch idle no more Aboriginal leaders and government bureaucrats have squandered too much time, money and energy playing the blame game. Idle No More has captured the imagination of Canadians. The aboriginal people, including the Métis and non-status Indians, need the support of ordinary, hard-working, law-abiding, tax-paying Canadians if the politicians are going to become sufficiently motivated to get off their butts and modernize that outdated, inefficient, incompetent colonial-based, baby-sitting service known as the Department of Indian Affairs. Before Idle No More spokespeople ride off in all directions, the so-called grassroots movement needs a national organization to articulate an action plan of shortterm and long-term goals. The politics of power might be

distasteful for many banner-waving idealists but a co-ordinating organization is necessary to select and negotiate pragmatic change. Hopefully the enthusiasm generated by Idle No More will also focus on the day-to-day governance of reservations and thereby encourage self-reliance, accountability and pride. Hopefully Harper’s government will view the enthusiasm generated by Idle No More as an opportunity for change and not as a political threat that must be destabilized, disassembled and destroyed. lloyd atkins cyclists on sidewalks To correct something Gordon Thomas stated in his letter Jan. 13,. bikes do not belong on the sidewalk, just as skateboards, electric bikes and scooters don't. The addition of bicycle lanes (such as they are) are definitely a safety feature for cyclists, but in the absence of a lane, people that know the rules of the road, know you ride with the flow of the traffic in the right hand lane and should observe the rules just as a motorist has to do. In my opinion, Vernon has some of the worst bike riders I ever seen. They do ride on sidewalks, cut

in front of traffic, use pedestrian crosswalks for their own private use, seldom wear helmets, have improper clothing and no lights. Why is it that nothing is done to enforce the law and penalize these countless infractions ? Bob desy

The Green Party has nominated Chris George to run in the Shuswap constituency in the May 14 provincial election. “As clichéd as it may sound, I am running to make the world a better place for my children,” said George, who lives in Notch Hill, near Salmon Arm. “My kids are my world. I want to leave them a community that is full of possibility, with clean air, water and food at hand and a vibrant and diverse economy for them to find their place in.” Chris George He is currently enrolled in the bachelor of general studies program at Thompson Rivers University. He has managed restaurants and retail outlets and was a financial planner and a technology consultant. “It is time for new ideas, to harness the innovation and hard work of all British Columbians in building a resilient economy, to break us out of the boom and bust pattern that has been our hallmark. And it can all start right here, in this community,” sad George. The Green Party is preparing for the election campaign. “Chris joins a team of passionate people who want to represent the citizens of their constituency in the legislative assembly,” said leader Jane Sterk.

The Harper government’s two recent omnibus bills don’t sit well with local First Nations bands. At a meeting involving Sexqeltkemc Enterprises Inc., a partnership between the Adams Lake, Neskonlith and Splatsin bands, the chiefs took a moment to comment on the Idle No More movement. Chief Nelson Leon of the Adams Lake Band said he’s spoken several times at regional Idle No More gatherings. “I feel it (Idle No More) is a clear indication of frustration in the treatment and consideration of aboriginal interests in this country, specifically Bill 38 and 45, and their implications to our interests in the land, both traditional and cultural, as well as the ongoing need to reconcile our aboriginal rights and title.” Chief Judy Wilson of the Neskonlith Band said First Nations peo-

“Our people are tired of being impoverished.” — Judy Wilson

ple are frustrated with the existing B.C. treaty process and comprehensive land claims, and would like fundamental change on a nation-to-nation basis. “Our people are tired of being impoverished where we have constitutionally held rights that are being legislated away through such bills as C-38 and C-45.” Chief Wayne Christian of the Splatsin Band says he sees Idle No More as a wake-up call to Canadians. “The disturbing part is Harper’s unilateral action specifically on the Navigable Waters (Protection Act) removing the word ‘water’ from the act, removing two million lakes and rivers from protection. That’s one thing we as individual people and Canadians have in common is that we all need water.”

He said he sees Idle No More as an opportunity for all Canadians. “It’s an opportunity to become educated and also to walk along beside us. It’s not just about aboriginal rights and title, and treaty rights, it’s about our human rights to live off our lands. That is recognized internationally in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People and other international covenants.” Christian said the Idle No More World Day of Action planned for Monday is a signal to the world. He notes that Canada has been an upholder of human rights at the UN for decades, but now the prime minister is attentive to China, which violates human rights. “It’s not a surprise he’s doing the same thing to us.”

News Cancer patients benefit from Bollywood event Morning Star Staff

The sights, sounds and tastes of India are coming together to support cancer patients in the North Okanagan. The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation is hosting the inaugural Bollywood Bang March 23 at the Vernon Recreation Complex. “The venue will be transformed into an amazing Bollywood movie set,” said Dalvir Nahal, a VJH Foundation director who thought of the event concept. “This type of event has never been done here before Dalvir Nahal and the plan marries the excitement of the Bollywood film industry, its music and bhangra dancing with the best Lower Mainland East Indian caterers providing the most delectable cuisine.” Guests are encouraged to dress Indian-style by renting traditional fashions for the evening and by experiencing henna painting. Nahal wanted to support the hospital because she received treatment for breast cancer there. “Each year, at the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre, more than 330 people receive the same difficult message that I received, ‘You have cancer,’” she said. “I was one of the fortunate ones who has extended health care insurance coverage to pay for expenses not provided by our Medical Services Plan. I saw many fellow cancer patients unable to pay for anti-nausea medications needed after chemo treatments, and some young moms without the resources to pay for childcare while being treated. I have been thinking about how I could help.” Funds from Bollywood Bang will provide assistance to patients who need it most. “This will make their journey to recovery a little easier,” said Nahal. Tickets for Bollywood Bang are $85 each or tables of eight are available for $680. “By word of mouth alone, we have already sold 14 tables,” said Nahal. “I invite anyone looking for a fun time and a completely new experience to join us.” For information or to reserve tickets, contact the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation at 250558-1362.

YOU AND THE LAW MENTAL INFIRMITY AND ADULT GUARDIANSHIP By Janice Mucalov, LL.B. An aging population means that more people struggle with loved ones slipping into mental infirmity – perhaps due to dementia or simply a gradual decline in mental functions. What can you do if you believe such a person, perhaps a parent, can no longer look after themselves or handle their own financial affairs? Conversely, what are an adult’s rights to continue to fend for themselves, despite their children’s concerns, however well-meant? The BC Court of Appeal recently shed some light on these and related questions.

of personal autonomy, liberty and equality – all fundamental rights enshrined in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Courts will thus be very careful before taking the serious step of depriving anyone of those rights by appointing a guardian. And forcing an unwilling adult to undergo medical examinations (so a court can hear a guardianship application) requires a high threshold of evidence showing that the adult appears to be mentally incapable. This needn’t only be medical evidence; it can be evidence of close family, friends or others. But without that, a court won’t order such an intrusive course of action.

Mr. M, 87, was a wealthy man. He married twice, the second time in 1965 to Mrs. M (who brought four children from her first marriage to her marriage with Mr. M).

In short, the court concluded that this case wasn’t really about protecting a vulnerable adult, but was a dispute between two families, the first represented by Mr. M’s daughter from his first marriage, and the second by Mrs. M (his wife of some 47 years). The thrust of the daughter’s application (and her related guardianship applications) was geared at attacking Mr. M’s testamentary capacity to make a will. Essentially, she wanted the will her father made in 2011 (as part of his revised estate plan) declared Kevin E. invalid; his previous will benefited Cherkowski her family more than his 2011 will.

In 2011, Mr. M’s daughter from his first marriage asked the court for an order to force her elderly father to undergo medical examinations by two geriatric psychiatrists. She wanted the court to appoint “committees” (an old-fashioned word meaning “guardians”) for her father. But before the court can appoint a guardian to look after an adult’s affairs, two physicians must provide opinions that the adult is mentally incompetent. Mr. M refused to be medically examined.

Mr. M had some loss of memory and mental function and early signs of dementia. But plenty of contradictory evidence also showed he was able to make prudent financial decisions, for example, when he changed his estate plan with professional help in 2011 – which treated fairly both his family from his first marriage and his second family. The law in B.C. presumes that an adult is capable of making their own personal and financial decisions. The court in this case emphasized that this presumption has at its heart the values

Kevin E. Cherkowski

• Real Estate • Wills, Trust and Estates • Corporate/Commercial

The court ultimately decided it wouldn’t force Mr. M to be medically examined. The evidence fell short of the threshold, and he wasn’t in need of protection (e.g. there was no neglect or abuse). To avoid a guardianship application in case of your possible mental incapacity, you can put in place an enduring power of attorney or representation agreement ahead of time, where you proactively appoint someone of your own choosing to be in charge of your personal or financial affairs. If you’re affected by any of the difficult situations that mental infirmity may bring about, be sure to seek experienced legal assistance.

Land use discussed Morning Star Staff

The ColumbiaShuswap Regional District has been discussing proposed land use changes in the Falkland area. The CSRD board considered non-farm use for a proposed golf course, clubhouse and camping on Schaeffer Road, east of Falkland. It defeated the staff recommendation to support the golf course and club house. The board recommended approval for a subdivision request concerning property on Smith Road. Currently there are three dwellings on the 32.37 hectare property and only two are permitted. The owners are requesting the subdivision to bring it into compliance with Salmon Valley land use bylaw. Both applications will be forwarded to the Agricultural Land Commission with their respective recommendations.

Vees punish Vipers on powerplay Morning Star Staff

Jedd Soleway sniped the powerplay winner as the Penticton Vees grounded the Vernon Vipers 3-1 in B.C. Hockey League action Friday night at South Okanagan Events Centre. Soleway, an 18-year-old Vernon product who was traded from the Viper den to Penticton in early December, added an assist on third star Wade M u r p h y ’s insurance marker in the third period to earn first star in front of 2,400 fans. The Vees Jedd Soleway (29-11-0-3), tied with the Victoria Grizzlies for first overall, have won five of six regularseason tilts against Vernon. The Snakes are last in the Interior Division at 14-210-7 and trail the Salmon Arm SilverBacks (18-18-2-3) by six points for the final playoff berth. Four of Vernon’s next five games are at Wesbild Centre, and assistant coach David Robinson says if they want to reach the post season they better start racking up some points. “It’s very doable, we just have to keep playing hard and believing we can get in,” said Robinson. “We do have some ground to make up, but they’re starting to

believe in themselves. We’re trying to build an identity as a hardworking team. All the guys in the room just want to play.” The Vipers begin their February schedule against the Coquitlam Express (17-24-1) Friday at Wesbild. The ‘Backs are in Vernon Saturday. Cody DePourcq (8th goal) opened the scoring late in the first period, beating Austin Smith (28 saves) blocker side at 17:34. The speedy winger earned a free shot at net when Vernon d-man Bryce Eviston tumbled after stepping on a stick that was laying on the ice. Soleway (11th) put the Vees up 2-0 in the fifth minute of the second period. Vernon’s Mason Blacklock (12th) continued his hot streak when he buried a slick 2-on-1 feed from Liam Board midway through the frame. Murphy (18th) sealed the win for Chad Katunar (26 saves) early in the final period. “It wasn’t a bad effort,” said Robinson. “The game could have gone either way. “We turned over the puck a few times and if you do that against a team like that it’s going to come back to bite you. Top team in the league; there’s a lot of skill over there.” SNAKE BITES: Vernon forward Craig Martin returned to the lineup for the first time since breaking his leg in a midNovember game.

Knights ramp up offence early to ice Nitehawks Morning Star Staff

A trio of highlight-reel, first-period goals helped give the North Okanagan Knights the spark they needed in a 5-2 win over the Beaver Valley Nitehawks Friday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Colton Thibault (12th goal), on a 5-on-3 disadvantage, Matty Saharchuk (24th), on a power move from down low on a powerplay, and Mat Lambert, on a gorgeous bar-down backhander at even strength, helped set the offensive tone for the 30-11-1-3 Knights. They share second overall in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League with the

Castlegar Rebels and are on a nine-game win streak. “Our first period, we were good,” said Knights’ head coach Kris Mallette. “All three lines did a great job. “We’re creeping up in the standings. Kamloops (Storm) did us a favour (Friday) night; they beat Sicamous (Eagles, 4-3).” The Knights are in Summerland today (2 p.m.) for a matinee with the Steam (18-22-1-2). They host Sicamous (25-11-2-4) Wednesday at Nor-Val. KIJHL scoring leader Dallas Calvin, with his 29th and 30th goals, handled the 28-13-3-1 Hawks’ attack, scoring the

opening goal at the five-minute mark. The Trail native added the 4-2 goal in the second period. Steve Pantazopoulos (10th) and second star Dylan Bowen (1st) rounded out the Knights attack in the second period. Beaver Valley came on hard in the second and third periods, but North Okanagan stood tall, anchored by the solid goaltending of third star Austin Buzzell (41 saves). “We weathered the storm,” said Mallette. “We were doing the little things well, but they came hard.” ICE CHIPS: Saharchuk has been added to the WHL Everett Silvertips 50-player protected list.

Lower taxes, more jobs and a renewed focus on Canada’s history were all topics for discussion as the Lake Country Chamber of Commerce held its first ever luncheon meeting with a federal cabinet minister as the guest. James Moore, the minister of Canadian heritage and minister responsible for B.C., spoke to more than 50 people at the Lake Country Chamber Wednesday on a variety of topics as part of a tour of B.C. communities. “We are going out as a government and getting feedback on the road ahead,” said Moore. “The House is back in session next week and I have been travelling the province talking about where we are going as a government.” Moore spent some time going over the federal government’s job creation plans and updating the status of the economy, calling Canada’s economy among the best when compared to other G-7 countries. He said the Conservative government’s plan includes tax breaks that will allow businesses to thrive, instead of relying on government spending. “As elected officials at all levels of government, we cannot spend all our time coming up with ways to spend more of the taxpayers money,” he said. “What we need to do is spend more time creating policies that will create wealth. It’s easy to come up with ideas on how to spend money but what we need from politicians and the private sector is creative ideas on how to create wealth for people and for business.” Moore spoke at length about a project he has taken under his wing as heritage minister to breathe new life into Canada’s museums and a new Canadian Museum of History. He called the teaching of history in Canada pathetic. “Out of the 13 provinces and terri-

tories in Canada, only in four of them is it mandatory to take a history class for graduation,” he said. “It’s pathetic what constitutes the teaching of history in B.C. Tragically for a generation now, we have ignored our history and we have an entire generation of Canadians that are largely illiterate about Canada’s history.” That’s why, according to Moore, the Conservative government decided to spend $25 million to promote the teaching and researching of Canadian history. Part of the plan will see the Canadian Museum of History sharing artifacts and displays with local museums so smaller areas of the country, such as Lake Country, can take in national displays that for now, are buried in the archives of the Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa. “All of these stories, they just sit in the archives in Ottawa,” he said. “The history of the railway, of aboriginal people, the discovery of Canada, Confederation, all of these brilliant stories about Canadian history that most people have never heard of.” He said under the plan local museums can have exhibits shipped to their museums and the federal government would pay the insurance costs for shipping them.

Former Viper pursues a life journey overnight. Seven years ago, he said, he woke up and couldn’t look at himself in the mirror anymore. “I wanted to stand for good,” said Phillips. “To talk the talk, I had to walk the walk.” He started by wanting to make a film of nothing but pure happiness. Phillips went with a friend and, armed with 80 soccer balls and cases and cases of fresh water, visited a school in Indonesia built by a friend whose parents were killed in the devastating Boxing Day tsunami in 2004. The hour-long

Ryan John Phillips’ life has done a complete 360. From troublemaker hockey player to convict, Phillips now wants to show his 13-year-old daughter what a real man stands for and that, in his own words, includes integrity, values, compassion, giving back and being an upstanding member of society that can contribute. The 37-year-old former member of the Vernon Vipers, who has relocated to Vernon, will head off on Feb. 8 cycling 545 kilometres from Vietnam to Cambodia on behalf of the Somaly Mam Foundation. “My mission, along with a few other riders, is to raise money to help eradicate human trafficking and sex slavery,” said Phillips. “We’re all here on earth to help each other. We all share this world together. I’m doing this bike ride because I have love in my heart and I want to help people.” Somaly Mam, as Phillips explains, was a Cambodian girl sold into a brothel at age 12 and served many clients a day. She was abused physically and emotionally. With the help of a French aid worker, Mam was able to escape the brothel. She has since made it her life’s mission to help save girls that have gone through the same pain and adversities. Phillips got to meet Mam in person during his first ride a couple of years ago where 20 rid-

film, titled Return To Happiness, which also includes the bike ride and meeting with Somaly Mam, will be available for worldwide distribution this spring. Phillips’ has also written a book about his life. Return To Happiness: The Journey, which is also slated to be released this year.

Pursuing his dream of becoming a hockey player, the North Vancouver native left home in his teens, living in 14 households between the ages of 16 and 20. That included Vernon in 1994-95. He was leading the B.C. Junior Hockey League in goals scored after 16 games into the season when the Vipers cut Phillips after “being ratted out by somebody that I was in a bar, when all I was doing

was dropping off some tickets for my girlfriend. “But I had off-ice issues and some other demons,” said Phillips, who praised thenVipers assistant coach Troy Mick with getting him a pro tryout in the Central Hockey League with the Wichita Thunder. “He saw some talent in me,” said Phillips of Mick. “I was going through a lot of off-ice issues but he saw the good in me.” After his pro career ended, Phillips fathered a daughter then, in his words, started hanging out with people involved in organized crime. He began shipping marijuana to the United States. In 2000, he was caught, arrested and convicted, and spent more than 500 days in a federal penitentiary for

conspiracy to import marijuana. “I went from hockey prospect to small cell where I was claustrophobic,” said Phillips. What helped him

get through his incarceration was the love of his parents and good friends. Yet, upon release from prison, an awakening process for Phillips didn’t happen

One day back in November, 1952, a school teacher by the name of Beverly Patterson met a Royal Canadian Air Force pilot by the name of Dale Steward. Three months later they married, Jan. 30, 1953, in Gimli, Manitoba. The Stewards’ journey begins: Dale was posted to Winnipeg, where his and Beverly’s first two children (Dale Jr. and Rick) were born. Then off to Toronto, Ont., where the next two (Darrell and Randy) were born. Dale’s next posting was Comox, B.C., where the last two children (Dawn and Robin) were born. The postings continued: Portage la Prairie, Man.;  Arvida, P.Q.; Lower Saskville, N.S.; Ottawa, Ont.; St. Bruno, P.Q.; Edmonton, Alta. When the children started arriving, Beverly decided to be a stay-at-home mom, which family members say they all appreciated. “Even in Grade 12 it was nice coming home from

they continue to live. They joined several groups. One was the RCAF Assoc. and political parties such as the Reform Party and APEC, which brings them to where they are today: 60 years of marriage, six children, 15 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. The Stewards’ family wish

their mom and dad, aka Nanny and Papa, Aunt Bev and Uncle Dale, best wishes and love on this very special occasion and welcome friends and family to join them to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on Feb. 2 at the Schubert Centre from 2 to 4 p.m. There will be coffee, tea and goodies.

Lepp says that by offering low-cost dental services to low-income residents, the society can resolve many of these issues. The centre is currently open two days a week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m. Hours are added as needed for urgent care and special clinics. Registrants must be low-income and meet eligibility criteria. The services are not free, but greatly reduced from 20 to 40 per cent depending on net income. In order to help those who cannot afford dental services even at reduced rates the Community Dental Access Centre has created a 224 Smile Saver

CSRD reviews 911 Morning Star Staff

How emergency calls are handled will be investigated in the C o l u m b i a - S hu s w ap Regional District. The board has approved hiring a consultant to review the current 911 call centre service and to look at available options. Currently, the CSRD, along with eight other regional districts, contribute to the service operated by the Central Okanagan System Operations Communications Centre in Kelowna. A CSRD core team will oversee the process. Last year, the board was advised the cost was going to exceed the maximum contract price due to RCMP contract negotiations. The contract with the current provider in Kelowna expires on Dec. 31. Finance manager Peter Jarman says the district is looking for the best financial option with the assurance that any new service will be either equal to or better than the current service.

Lopping off locks for a good cause Vernon branch of the Canadian Cancer Society offers many support services to local cancer patients, including wigs Cara Brady Morning Star Staff

Many people with cancer find receiving a wig to wear while their hair grows back after treatment is an important part of their recovery. The wigs are made possible by the donations of hair by children and adults who grow their hair, sometimes for several years, in order to make a donation. It can take as many as 12 donations of hair, 40 hours of work and cost about $1,200 to make one hand-sewn wig. The Vernon branch of the Canadian Cancer Society accepts donations of hair which are sent to Vancouver to be made into wigs. Most of the wigs go to B.C. Children’s Hospital, with the rest available through society offices around the province. The Vernon branch has about 60 wigs, as well as caps and scarves available. People can make an appointment to have a private fitting for a wig and can keep the wigs as long as they need to at no charge. There is currently a volunteer position for a temporary wig coordinator with training provided. The wigs are only one of the services provided by the society. “Approximately one in four people will be diagnosed with cancer, which translates to approximately 23,300 British Columbians. By supporting the Canadian Cancer Society community outreach and funding campaigns, donors and volunteers make it possible for people who are diagnosed to access many services,” said Susan Moore, coordinator, volunteer engagement, Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon Division. These services include the CCS Financial

Support Program to cover the cost of travel and accommodation for cancer treatments and medications not covered by MSP and stays at cancer lodges in Kelowna, Vancouver, Victoria and Prince George (opening January 2013). Fundraising campaigns also support Camp Goodtimes, a camp for children who have had cancer and their siblings; research into cancer causes and the development of improved

diagnostics and treatments; and facilitate continued community outreach to educate and promote healthy lifestyles and advocate for legislative changes to minimize exposure to carcinogenic agents. The Cancer Information Service provides information on all cancers and cancer-related services and resources at 1-888-939-3333. Trained specialists provide information and referrals in English and French with interpre-

tation available in more than 100 languages. The emotional support program, CancerConnection, is a free, confidential service (available by phone or in person) that connects people with cancer with a trained volunteer cancer survivor who has had a similar cancer experience. The volunteers listen, share practical stories, offer understanding and encouragement. “The Canadian Cancer Society is a volunteer-driven organization with more than 15,000 volunteers located throughout the province. Without volunteer support, we wouldn’t be able to provide the support services and programs we do,” said Moore. The 2013 Daffodil Campaign take place in April, Daffodil Month, and leadership and canvassing volunteers are needed. For more information about volunteering for the Daffodil Campaign, at the Vernon office in The People Place or as temporary wig coordinator, call the office at 250-542-0770.

CMHA celebrates new workplace standard Morning Star Staff

The Canadian Mental Health Association has reached a critical turning point in the challenge to build mentally healthy workplaces all around the country. The Canadian Standards Association, together with the Mental Health Commission of Canada, have just implemented the National Standard of Canada’s Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace on prevention, promotion and guidance. The standard, both for employers and employees, defines and

sets a higher standard for workplace mental health with a goal of protecting and improving the mental health of Canadian workers. The CMHA B.C. division believes the standard provides a structure and systematic process that will make it easier for Canadian employers to develop and improve psychologically healthy and safe work environments. “In an environment of increasing chronic workplace stress which, if not addressed, can result in both physical and psychological

harm, we have seen a growing need for clearly defined guidelines to protect employees’ mental health,” said Lynn Spence, acting CEO of CMHA B.C. “Employers and unions are increasingly aware of the benefits of taking responsibility and prioritizing mental wellness, and the standard provides guidelines for taking practical steps to do so.” According to statistics, 44 per cent of Canadian employees report experiencing mental health problems. An estimated $20.7 billion loss in labour force participation is due to common mental disorders. The standard will offer employers, employees and employee representatives guidance to address these issues

in their workplace, said Spence. “Implementing the standard will benefit employers as well as workers. Research indicates that employers who implement effective workplace safety and wellness strategies perform better in key categories such as employee engagement, lower turnover, and shareholder returns,” she said. According to a 2012 conference board of Canada survey, a majority of managers say that while they are informed about mental health issues, most feel ill equipped and would benefit from training to help employees with mental health problems stay at work or return to work successfully and healthily. That’s where CMHA comes in. For more than 10 years, CMHA has been providing training for workplaces to help them through workpl ace-fo c uss e d education and training, including its awardwinning Mental Health Works program. To learn more about the CMHA’s 10th anniversary Bottom Line Conference, taking place in Vancouver Feb. 27 and 28, and to access the new national standard at no cost, visit www.bottomlineconference.ca.

Is there a concern with my dog licking its paws after walking on winter roads?

The main ingredients in most ice melt products are sodium chloride or calcium chloride. Both of these substances can irritate dog’s feet or if ingested, can cause digestive issue such as vomiting or diarrhea. A dog’s paws should be thoroughly cleaned after walking on treated sidewalks and roads. Also dogs with longer hair on their feet or legs can accumulate snowballs which can pull and cause discomfort if not removed. Prevent them from eating snow, licking their feet or drinking out of puddles to minimize their chance of ingesting these substances. Consider buying a pet friendly version of ice melt. Pet friendly versions do not contain the harmful chemicals. Another alternative to consider when taking your pet for a walk is booties. Not only will it prevent the chemicals from getting on the dogs feet, but also provides a protective layer to their pads. Sharp ice commonly found in parking lots can easily injure a dog’s pad. Most Pet Stores carry a variety of footwear especially for winter walking conditions. So take these precautions and enjoy your wintertime walks with your canine friend.

Swan song of all love stories comes to town Morning Star Staff

Kevin vagg

Montréal’s Ballet Jörgen is at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Saturday, Feb. 2 to perform Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet, Swan Lake.

It’s one of the greatest and most tragic love stories of all times, well, after Romeo and Juliet. The love between Prince Siegfried and his beautiful, but cursed swan, Odette, has been danced by the most famous ballet companies around the world, and was even translated, albeit disturbingly, in a film starring Oscar winner Natalie Portman. And now the classic production, featuring the famed Tchaikovsky score, is being re-imagined by Montréal’s Ballet Jörgen, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a national touring production of Swan Lake. Locals can be swept away under its spell when the soldout performance comes to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre on Saturday. For this special celebration, Ballet Jörgen’s artistic director and CEO Bengt Jörgen has re-envisioned the classical and dramatic ballet — the story of true love, the union of two souls, and ultimate sacrifice — by adding a hint of Canadian heritage, as is often a signature of his work.  “I am so excited to do this work and be able to do it with the kind of incredible dancers that we have,” said Jörgen. “Swan Lake has an evocative and inspiring quality that makes it a pleasure and beauty to work on, and I’m excited about transferring that feeling to the people watching it.” While this major new production showcases the extraordinary beauty of traditional ballet in its purest form, Jörgen has re-imagined it in the picturesque Fortress of Louisbourg, on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island. Designed by Camellia Koo, the elaborate sets

“Swan Lake has an evocative and inspiring quality that makes it a pleasure and beauty to work on.” — Bengt Jörgen

reflect the beauty of Canada’s national heritage parks providing a dramatic backdrop to Robert Doyle’s 17th century inspired costume designs. Doyle is thrilled to be involved in this unique rendition of Swan Lake, having worked on the original restoration project of the Fortress of Louisbourg, said Jörgen. “There is no reason why Swan Lake has to be staged in some imaginary medieval European place,” he said. “This version of Swan Lake is set in and around the Fortress of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, and so our audiences will see Canadian heritage intrinsically reflected in the piece.” With a cast of 24 dancers, this addition to the company repertoire is one of the largest ballet productions to grace Canadian stages from coast to coast. And it’s not the first time Ballet Jörgen has been recognized for its leadership role in the development of touring by professional dancers and companies in Canada. The recipient of the 2011 National Arts Centre Award for Distinguished Contribution to Touring, the company is known for its commitment to the recreation of classical ballets, in a way that is respectful of tradition, yet engaging to modern audiences and with a repertoire consisting exclusively of original works.  The third show in the Vernon Performing Arts

Centre society’s 2012/2013 dance series, Swan Lake is already sold out, however, those wanting to take a chance to get tickets can sign up on the limited availability waiting list, said Brian van Wensem, the centre’s audience development coordinator  The love affair with this company does not only apply to the performance. Additional activities being planned for interested participants include an exclusive 30-to-60 minute dance as a professional discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the ins and outs of working as a professional dancer. Topics will have a special focus on the ballet world including: life within a company, touring, finding a company and auditioning. Participants can peek behind the veil of the professional dance world, and make some new exciting connections. Dance students and teachers also have the opportunity to participate in the Ballet Jörgen master class. Dancers can take their dance to another level by working intimately with company members. Class sizes will be limited to allow for one-on-one instruction. To register for the master class, professional discussion, or to get on the waiting list to see Swan Lake, call the Ticket Seller box office at 250-549SHOW (7469) or visit online at www.ticketseller.ca.

Arts Remembering Holly at Winter Dance Party Morning Star Staff

On the night of Feb. 2, 1959, a plane carrying J.P. Richardson, Richard Valenzuela, Charles Hardin and pilot Roger Peterson crashed during a snow storm. The world soon learned that the three passengers who died in the crash were some of the greatest rock and roll performers of their time: The Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens, and Buddy Holly. On Saturday, local musicians Manfred Harter, Cadillac Bob and The Lonely will pay tribute to one of them at the Winter Dance Party in Lumby to help raise funds for the Lumby Museum. This tribute performance is based on a series of concerts held in 1953 called the Winter Dance Party, and these took place on some very cold and miserable days and nights when Holly, Valens and the others went on tour together, said local guitarist

Harter, who has been a fan of Holly’s music since grade school and periodically surfaces to immerse himself in the music of this great artist. “The tour bus broke down several times and had no heater. It was, at best, a hard grueling and primitive circumstance,” he said. “It was a time to meet new fans and follow up on the heels of a number of new song releases, but a bad flip of a coin for an

airplane seat during a snowstorm, and a pilot unfamiliar with night flying, caused the death of the four young men.” That evening saw Holly’s last show in Clear Lake, Iowa. The following night would have been in Moorhead, Minnesota. “The next day, Feb. 3, is generally considered to be the date associated with Buddy Holly’s passing. That was the day the airplane was found in a cornfield, crumpled,” said Harter. Joining Harter in Lumby for this show are friends and fellow musicians of similar music tastes. No stranger to Lumby, Cadillac Bob has teamed up with Harter to pick and sing, while The Lonely consists of drummer Rennie Sirianni and Rod MacDonald on upright bass. Both are familiar names and faces in the Greater Vernon music scene. The Winter Dance Party takes place at White Valley Community Hall Saturday from 7:30 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $25, available at Lumby Health Foods, Caffe Mazzega, eventbrite.ca and at the door.

This playbook may be golden

O

silver linings Playbook

n a good day, Patrick Solitano (Bradley Cooper) is able to keep the fact that he is bipolar under wraps. The problem is that lately, he hasn’t had very many good days, but it’s not for a lack of trying. After serving eight months in a mental institution, he is released to the care of his parents, where he begins the long task of returning to his normal life, with his job, his wife and his friends. Things become a little more complicated when he meets Tiffany (Jeniffer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own. Silver Lining Playbook is nominated for eight Oscars, including best actor and actress for Cooper and Lawrence, as well as best supporting for both Robert DeNiro and Jacki Weaver. The film also is nominated for best picture, but is it deserving? We say, “It’s a simple and effective film with solid performances and a good story.” HOWE: Who would of thought that Cooper could actually act and not just rely on his good looks and charm to get by in movies?

a great performance in Silver Lining as he struggles to accept that he has a mental illness and is not 100 per cent cured, like he thinks he is. I think his nod for an Oscar nomination is warranted after watching him in this, yet saying that I don’t think he’ll win. TAYLOR: I agree. I’d like Joaquin Phoenix to win for his shattering performance in The Master, but Cooper is very good. Patrick had a look in his eyes, especially in his quiet moments, where you could see he was dangling from his last, raw nerve. Cooper is often just “the face” in a movie. Perhaps that will change now that everyone knows he can act. HOWE: Lawrence gives a good, solid performance, as does the reliable Robert DeNiro. I find that he is better suited for these roles, rather than his tough guy image. It was nice to see some emotion that felt real and it was beautifully captured

IAN JOHNSTONE

Breast cancer doesn’t affect only older women. The Canadian Cancer Society recommends that women between the ages of 40 and 49 talk to their doctors about breast cancer screening. For women aged 50 to 70, mammograms are recommended every two years. Women over 70 should speak to their doctors about screening frequency. With all the talk about pollution from hydrocarbons, it’s comforting to know that a product with the name “white petrolatum” is free from any impurities that may cause cancer. This product has been around for over 150 years. We know it as its brand name, Vaseline. The internet makes shopping very easy and more people are doing their buying this way. However, buying drugs on-line is not recommended. There have been many reports about counterfeit drugs being sold on-line and the purchaser has no idea whether the label indicates what is truly in the bottle or not. Don’t take chances with your health. With all the publicity surround calcium during the past year, many people are wondering if they should take this mineral at all. The best source of calcium is from our diet. But if you are not a dairy product or vegetable consumer, you can safely supplement with up to 1000 mg per day. Check with our pharmacists. For answers to your questions about calcium or any product in our pharmacy, talk to our pharmacists. They are always ready to serve you. Have Your Prescriptions Filled With Us

Members of the newly formed Pipes and Drums of the North Okanagan band have started practising in Vernon.

New pipe band seeks musicians Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan is becoming known as the Highlands of B.C. with the start of a new bagpipe and drums band in the area. Still in its infancy, The Pipes and Drums of the North Okanagan already has 14 members, all of whom are interested in

getting together, playing the music they love, and performing for the community, said pipe major Don MacLeod, who is leading the group. Based in Vernon, the band also has members from Kelowna, Vernon, Coldstream, the B.X. and Armstrong. “At the moment the

Professor, University of Alberta In this fascinating presentation, Dr. Currie will delve into the behavior of the prehistoric Albertosaurus. Decades of work of examining fossils from the Red Deer River badlands of Alberta has led Dr. Currie to propose that these carnivorous dinosaurs, were, in fact, intelligent enough to hunt in packs.

youngest member is 13, the oldest is 79 and there is a full mixture of ages in between,” said MacLeod. “There seems to be a bit of a family theme to the band. There is a father/son, mother/ daughter, grandfather and grandsons, brothers and husband and wife. For a group that has just recently begun it has a great foundation and the future looks very bright.” Current plans for the band include parades, community events, and serving the cities, municipalities and charities in the entire area. Any pipers or drummers of any level of competence are welcome to join the band. “If anyone, no matter what age, would like to learn one of these fabulous instruments, the band offers excellent instruction in either bagpipes, tenor drumming or snare drumming,” said MacLeod. The band practices on Wednesday nights in Vernon, from 6 to 8 p.m. For more information contact MacLeod at 250-260-1001.

Rotarian Pat Loehndorf

SAVE-A-LIFE CPR DAY

On February 18, 2012, Silver Star Rotary Club of Vernon and Vernon Fire and Rescue Services will host the 25th Annual Project Save-A-Life CPR Day. Last year over 300 people registered for the event, which involved CPR training as well as a demonstration of how to use a portable defibrillator. Twenty five years ago, our club president of the day had two instances in his life where heart attacks happened to others nearby, and as the ambulance was called, he waited for them to arrive. He was frustrated that he didn’t have the knowledge of CPR to help further. These circumstances prompted him to look for CPR training. At the same time he was looking for a long term community project in which the club could participate. That same year, the Seattle Rotary Club ran a campaign on training their population in CPR, so Silver Star Rotary sent a contingent down to Seattle to review their program. Vernon’s Project Save-A-Life CPR Day was born! Silver Star Rotary Club is responsible for the organization of the event itself, coordinating with a local school for the use of their facilities, and providing club members for registration check-in and trainee assistance. Vernon Fire and Rescue Services is responsible for the actual training of the participants, which will result in the issuance of a Level A CPR Certificate. Usually we

have approximately 15-20 trainers made up of local firefighters, EMTs and training staff. Since the first few years, our participation numbers have decreased as more and more participants in the local community become trained, but the event is still as vibrant and necessary to the community. This year we are continuing our tradition of a delicious pancake breakfast which is free with your sign-up (donations gladly accepted!). Lives have been saved through the project. There have been success stories: A man golfing at Vernon Golf & Country Club course, incidents at Sovereign Lakes crosscountry trails and Silver Star Resort, choking in an office lunch room, a child saving her father and several others. Our event this year is scheduled for Saturday, February 16 at Clarence Fulton Secondary School. Classes run on the hour, starting at 9 am, 10 am and 11 am. Sign up by attending the Village Green Mall in the evening on Friday, February 8 (4:00-9:00 pm) or all day on Saturday, February 9 (9:30am-5:30pm). You can also register by calling 1-888-CPR-LUNG. Project Save-A-Life continues to be a strong addition to the community and we look forward to serving the community again this year

Silver Star Mountain Resort has delivered a new attraction to its ever-growing list of family-friendly activities. And this one is geared towards those looking to get out of the cold. Open since December, Pinheads Bowling Alley is Canada’s first, and only, ski-in, skiout, 10-pin bowling experience. Located at the FireLight Lodge, Pinheads has four state-of-the-art lanes, including bumper rails for the kids, 70-inch LCD screen entertainment, lighting displays and touch-screen automatic scoring pads. And three of the lanes are available for reservation, while the fourth is available on a first-come, first-served basis. “We thought it would be something that everyone could enjoy,” said Duncan Miller, Pinheads owner. “It would be something that would benefit Silver Star and the whole area. In terms of the commercial area, it seems to fit in very well. It’s right opposite Brewer’s Pond, so it’s right in the whole of the kids’ corner. If someone had actually planned it, you wouldn’t put it in a different spot.” Miller may not be a household name in Canada, but he is somewhat of a celebrity in his native Australia. He teamed up with best mate Mark Bowyer to compete in the hit Aussie reality television show The Block in 2010. The duo – known as ‘The Two Fat Tradies’ – became instant fan favourites, and were invited back to the 10th anniversary all-star edition, which recently finished filming. The series follows four couples as they compete against each other to renovate houses and sell them at auction for the highest price. “That’s a good reason why I came here

after a day of downhill skiing or the adventure of tube town, visitors to Silver Star mountain resort can head over to Pinheads bowling Centre to relax. the business is Canada’s only ski-in, ski-out, 10-pin bowling experience in Canada. for six weeks. I’m not noticed as much over here,” chuckled the laid-back Aussie. “In saying that, the Australians (working at Silver Star) notice me.” As the father of four “ski-crazy” sons, Miller was drawn to Silver Star about five years ago. “We just typed in the five best places in the world to ski with kids, and Silver Star was one of them. It just ticked all the boxes.” In addition to the bowling, Pinheads is

also serving up a new dining option with its adjoining Final Run Bar and Bistro. The bistro’s menu and wine list was created by Ricardo Scebba and Sue Miller – coowners of the popular Kelowna restaurant Ricardo’s – and features a range of healthy food options, sandwich bar and hot foods. “It’s simple food, but when Ricardo comes in, he seems to make even simple food taste unreal,” said Duncan Miller. While Miller might be handy with a ham-

mer, he admits his bowling skills wouldn’t pass inspection. “My oldest son still holds the record on the screen, and I’ve been trying my hardest to beat it,” he said. “I’m happy with about a 150. That’s about my best so I’ve still got a long way to go.” Pinheads is currently organizing a tenpin Silver Star league, and Miller also sees potential for a Vernon league and school group functions.

Anti-spam rules create a buzz

he Canadian Chamber of Commerce is concerned about the new proposed anti-spam regulations for Canada. Canadian anti-spam legislation (CASL) and the corresponding regulations have taken a banall approach to regulating commercial electronic messages (CEMs). All e-mails, SMS texts, social media sent in a commercial context are captured. The broad scope of CASL means that it will impact every single business, association, club, charitable organization and foundation that conducts activities in Canada. Without significant modifications and exceptions, this legislation will impede commercial speech, an essential ingredient of market competitiveness and lead to reduced competition and higher prices. The legislation will obligate the

sender to obtain consent from the receiver prior to sending a CEM. That consent may not be obtained by sending a CEM. The definitions for consent are quite specific and are more demanding than existing privacy legislation. The legislation also requires an opt-out mechanism in all CEMs which must be backstopped with a database with the details of all business/personal relationships and removals George Duffy of consent. Administrative penalties for non-compliance are heavy. The rules would provide powers for private parties to sue under the legislation. After passing legislation, the government drafts regulations to enforce it. The law usually doesn’t come into effect until the regulations are approved by cabinet. Before that happens, regulations

Chamber news

are published in the Canada Gazette and interested parties can comment on them. That’s where these rules are now. They were published in the Canada Gazette Jan. 5 for a 30-day comment period. The law could come into effect sometime toward the end of 2013. This legislation will also impose high compliance costs on businesses that may be ill-equipped to undertake them and will result in economic hardship for both business and not-for-profit organizations. The result will be a corresponding negative impact on local economies. In its current form, these regulations will impede innovation and competitiveness by needlessly channelling resources away from new ventures and opportunities and by slowing the regular updating of computer software and systems. Ultimately, this legislation and the regulations in their current

form will not solve the problem of nuisance/fraudulent messages or of nuisance/malicious software, which are generally initiated outside the jurisdictional reach of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, the agency tasked with enforcement of the CASL. Information about anti-spam can be found on the Industry Canada website at www.Fightspam. gc.ca/eic/site/030.nsf/eng/h_00211. html To read more about the impacts of these proposed changes on organizations, visit the Canadian Chamber of Commerce at www. chamber.ca. Or you can link to it from the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce at www.vernonchamber. ca, part of the Canadian chamber network. George Duffy is general manager of the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce.

INDIA - “Aaay, col’ drrrinks, fofcorn, chiffsss...” A vendor grins at me through the window bars of our “toy” train as it pants resolutely over a winding narrow-gauge track. Snack tray slung over his neck, he is swinging adroitly from one carriage to the next along the foot-boards. My son Glenn and daughter Susan are with me as we chug our way to Matheran, which lies about 90 kilometres out of Mumbai. For the past week we have been in the grip of the city with its crowds, humidity and unrelenting clamour. Matheran, India’s smallest hill station with its sylvan glades and rustic trails, will be a welcome change. Founded in the mid 1800s, Matheran, which translates loosely as “large forest on top,” has no paved streets or cars, and therefore no traffic intersections or gasoline fumes. The only motor road from Mumbai halts at a parking lot on the outskirts of the town; from there one travels either by hand-pulled rickshaws,

The entire journey from Mumbai by train takes about five hours, and having switched from the main MumbaiPune railway line to the Matheran Hill Railway at Neral, we are now in a tiny carriage sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with a young couple and their two children. At this initial stage of our ascent, the terrain is bare rock, interspersed with scrub and weary, stunted trees, their leaves ashen with dust. The vendor has moved on and another face peers through the window. It belongs to Mike, a blonde-bearded American. He too is

hitching a ride on the foot board, clinging limpet-like to the window bars. The miniature train sighs to a halt at a small station, Jummapatti, half way up the hillside, and passengers get out to stretch their legs. The platform swarms with hawkers selling trinkets, bottled drinks, tea, coffee and snacks. The family unpacks a picnic hamper of potato bhajias and chutney. The father turns to us, “Please,” he says, “try some home made Indian snacks.” My Canadian-raised teenagers exchange glances, wary about accepting hospitality from strang-

ers. They have no way of knowing that in India it is customary to invite fellow travellers to share refreshments. It would, in fact, be churlish to refuse. I help myself to a bhajia. “Thank you,” I say. “It looks delicious.” Not to be outdone in generosity, Susan digs out a packet of maple pecan brittle from her backpack and offers it to the family. The little boy delightedly crunches a piece and, the ice broken, his sister scrambles over to show us a sketch she has made of the train On the final stage of its ascent, the train snakes along a narrow shelf hewn into the hill. Mike, no longer nonchalant about riding the foot board, squeezes his eyes shut. Gripping the window bars, his knuckles like bleached

pebbles, he is suspended over a sheer fifteenhundred foot drop of unforgiving rock face. The plains below are a quilt of green paddy fields stitched by thin, meandering streams which glint silver in the strong sunlight. The train takes a turn, and ahead of us, about a hundred feet up, I catch a glimpse of the wooded plateau that is Matheran — looking for all the world like a head of broccoli sprouting on a stem of fissured rock. On the cramped, cliff-hugging side of the train, the vendors continue to bawl their wares. At the previous station they have prudently switched sides. Mike’s suffering is short-lived. We level out, travelling through a glade of spreading trees. The soil is now rust coloured and pathways leading to spectacular look out points meander through the forest. Soft breezes set the trees whispering, and the air feels cool and fresh. As groups of holidaymakers pause to wave and shout greetings, the train, in a burst of confidence, puts on a terrific show of speed. We steam into Matheran station with aplomb.

“I’ve been selling student first chocolates for about 3 years now, and so far its helped me a ton. Before i started i used to be extremely shy, About a month after i started, i could quickly see my skills building and my communication ability rising, a little after that i was capable of starting a conversation with anyone, and saw my speaking and sentence wording ability becoming extremely good, and that’s the most important ability in my life. i highly recommend this youth program to any student looking for an early start in the workforce, and any student looking for a bit of spending money for the new year too.”

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

THE SAME RULE IS FOR LATER LEADS R.K. Milholland, an author of Web comics, said, “Friendship is being there when someone’s feeling low and not being afraid to kick him.” That would work with a lot of people, but would make some feel even worse. We “kick” partner by leading a low card from a long suit to tell him that we have at least one honor in it. And this applies during the play if a defender shifts to a suit not yet led by either side. Here is a classic example. West leads the spade four against three no-trump. South captures East’s jack with his king and plays a low diamond. What should

happen next? West was right to overcall one spade, not to make a takeout double. He was hoping to introduce hearts on the next round if it seemed expedient. South has eight top tricks: two spades and six clubs. He needs one diamond trick to get home. And it is usually best to try to sneak an extra winner immediately, while the defenders are still half asleep. However, an awake West knows from the first trick that South has the spade ace and king. Why isn’t declarer running for home? He must be trying to get a ninth trick. So West must win with his diamond ace and shift to the heart three. This low card says that West has honors

in hearts and is trying to win tricks in this suit. East should take the trick with his king and return the heart two, not go back to spades. If West had begun with ace-10-fifth of spades and had wanted East to return a spade, West would have led a high heart, not his lowest.

Gordon James Wade It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Gordon James Wade (Gordie). Born in 1951 he was the youngest child of Gordon Sr. and Doris. Gordie worked in the Trucking Industry for over 35 yrs. His passion in life was Blues music and he was a very accomplished harmonica player playing at numerous venues and functions thru-out the Okanagan. Gordie organized many fundraisers thru-out his community. He will be missed by many. Gordie enjoyed spending his time at home with his soul mate Linda-Sue and his pets Tanner and Boo Boo Kitty Wade and of course he loved his music. Gordie fought his cancer to the very end. He was never one to give up easy. Gordie is survived by his daughter Erin, sister Sandee, brother Keith (Vernie), nephews Ryan, Mark, Ed, James, sisters-in-law Janice, Cindy, Sandra, brothers-in-law Philip, Rusty, Brad and Doug, and wife Linda-Sue Wilson (Palichuk). He was and will always be the love of her life. He is also survived by many, many true and close friends. Service is to be held on Tuesday, January 29th at 2:00 p.m. at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, to be followed immediately by a pot luck dinner and wake and Live Music Jam at the Elks Hall in Vernon. Rest in Peace Gordie. There is no more pain now except the pain in all of our Hearts but your suffering is now over.
