Court concerns raised richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s 1914 courthouse is a landmark but it’s also restricting the wheels of justice. Demands are growing for the provincial government to address space and safety concerns at the 27th Street facility. “There is a lack of appropriate space to meet with clients and there is a lack of security for the accused to move from cells to courtrooms,” lawyer Sheridan Clemson told Justice Minister Shirley Bond at a Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce breakfast event Tuesday at the Schubert Centre. Bond toured the courthouse while in Vernon. “The safety concerns are legitimate,” said Bond of prisoners coming in contact with the public. Bond says the courthouse is on the ministry’s 10-year capital plan and options may include restricting the current facility to civil matters while a new building would focus on criminal cases. “I can’t tell you when (something may happen) but it’s on the list.” Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA, has met with lawyers, judges and sheriffs over the lack of modern

security measures at the courthouse. “It’s beautiful but it’s old. We certainly want to keep it,” said Foster. Foster admits, though, that there is one challenge “We’re talking big dollars (for a new building),” he said. While speaking to the chamber at the Schubert Centre, Bond talked about increased focus on criminal organizations, including gang activity that led to a number of murders in Vernon. “I have confidence in the police leadership in the province,” she said. “We’ve made gang violence and mitigating that violence a priority.” About $22 million a year is spent on anti-gang units across the province. Bond also talked about the need for justice reform to reduce courtroom delays and use resources efficiently. “If you are a victim of crime, should you be revictimized by the length of time it takes to get this resolved? I don’t think so,” she said. Among the measures being looked at are handling Jennifer Smith/morning Star traffic tickets administratively and moving family law Justice Minister Shirley Bond speaks to the Greater Vernon Chamber of towards mediation. Commerce at the Schubert Centre Tuesday.

B.C.’s auditor general leaves post for Australia when he was appointed to the committee. With Doyle heading for Australia, the Legislature will now have to find a new auditor general. However, Foster isn’t sure if he will be on the committee because the legislative session begins next week and new committee appointments will be made. “It will be up to the House leader and the premier who makes up the committee,” he said. “There’s no guarantee whatsoever that I will be on the committee.” Clark has indicated that legislation should be changed so auditor generals have a nonrenewable eight-year term. Foster supports that move and says it will prevent future controversy over MLAs selecting an auditor general. “It gives them an opportunity to do the

job and not worry about reappointment, and you avoid all of the silliness,” said Foster. Prior to coming to B.C., Doyle was in Australia.

Suspect may be linked to break-and-enters RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP may finally have a break after a rash of recent break-and-enters at local residences. Police received a call

from a homeowner on Saturday, just before 5 p.m., that a man had just taken off from her residence in the 2900 block of Prospect Drive on a bicycle. “The owner said the

suspect was inside the house, stole various items, and when she confronted him in the backyard, he dropped his backpack and left,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“Our officers arrived at her house while other members patrolled the area.” Inside the backpack was a laptop computer which the owner identified as hers.

Molendyk could not say what the weapon was. Police are continuing to work on this case and determine if this suspect is linked to other property crimes that have recently taken place in the city. “We’ve had a rash of break-and-enters

where a bicycle has been involved,” said Molendyk. “In some cases a suspect will steal a bicycle to commit a property crime then dump the bicycle. We’re following up on a number of issues in relation to that.”

Monday morning. “The driver of a grey GMC pick up, a 77-year-old man, was soutbhound on a green light.” Molendyk said the driver told police a vehicle was coming out of a yield into his lane directly in front of him, and that he focused his attention on it. A passenger in the truck noticed the girl dart across the road and tried to alert the driver who quickly hit his brakes, but it was not in time to avoid hitting the pedestrian. “Police are continuing to follow up on this file to determine the cause of the accident and who was at fault,” said Molendyk.

North Okanagan residents will know soon if meat can once again be sold at the farm gate. Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick says he has presented a proposal about meat processing regulations to his cabinet colleagues. “A decision will be forthcoming in the short weeks to come,” said Letnick while in Vernon Tuesday. However, Letnick would not say whether his plan includes the issuance of D and E slaughter licenses so farm-gate sales can occur locally. “We have put together a comprehensive package that addresses the issues,” he said. “My belief is the package will be positively accepted by a majority of stakeholders.” Officials from the Regional District of North

— Norm Letnick

Okanagan and Spallumcheen have been lobbying Letnick to initiate licenses as a way of supporting the economy and local families. The number of North Okanagan producers has gone from 1,200 to 300 since meat processing regulations came into force in 2007. “I heard from people in the North Okanagan and their perspectives,” said Letnick.

Extra runs added to UBC transit District of North Okanagan chairperson. The extra weekday runs leave Vernon at 9 a.m. and noon and return at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The UBC connector was introduced in July 2008. Frequently, the bus is full and some students have been left on the roadside. Last month, a midday trip at 1 p.m. was added on the UBC route by cancelling the lesser used 6 p.m. run.

Monday was the end for the penny. That’s when the Royal Canadian Mint stopped shipping the humble copper-coloured coin to businesses and banks. Until then, the mint was essentially cleaning out its stockpile, as it hasn’t manufactured new pennies since last May. Of course it will likely take years for the penny to disappear from circulation altogether, given the millions squirreled away in drawers and tin cans, savings for a rainy day’s small indulgences. The mint says eliminating the penny will save $11 million a year.

he photos are horrifying — dogs with serious health conditions or jammed into tiny cages, kittens sitting in their own filth and obviously under-fed. Emotion dictates that large-scale breeding operations — commonly known as puppy mills — are inhumane and every effort must be taken to shut them down. That’s why, on the surface, a request for the City of Vernon to ban the retail sale of pets provided by backyard breeders makes sense. But not everything is as it seems. Specifically, it appears that local pet stores are not the problem as they either don’t sell dogs and cats or if they do, it’s just a handful from individuRichard Rolke als they know and have some confidence in the care of these animals. “Targeting pet stores won’t achieve much because they don’t sell many,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. Most of the activity appears to be happening on the web. A quick check of one local Internet site shows 25 ads for cats and kittens and 137 for dogs and puppies. On another site, there are 22 ads for cats and kittens and 20 for canines (for disclosure purposes, pets are also sold via The Morning Star website and hard-copy edition). Of course we can’t assume that all of these are puppy mills. Some may be a person with a single pet who had babies. In other cases, they may have a few animals but they take extremely good care of them. Simply being a breeder doesn’t make them evil. But some of the advertisements do raise alarm bells. One reads, “Puppies wanted. Any kind of puppy.” Another says, “Looking for female kittens ready to go.” Ready to go for what?

Update on hospital timeline wanted

O

n April 15, 2011, I sent a letter to then health minister Michael de Jong. And now I say to you, Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid, “Your attention is required on the plight of Vernon Jubilee Hospital, which has been, is, and will continue to be overcrowded and underfunded without your help. I believe you would have to have a very good reason to cause the people of Vernon and area to continue to fight for the right to survive. I would be interested to hear what that reason is.” Certainly you have been brought up-todate on this critical issue of extreme overcapacity, and of being so out of balance (from information already almost two years old) with hospitals across B.C. and Canada with regards to the shortage of 50 acute care beds funded and in their proper space. The acute/critical care wards, including the two operating rooms planned for the VJH Polson tower, in place and funded properly, will allow for safe proper care and access to required surgeries in a timely manner. I am certain that you realize that one

Landing firefighters My sentiments are exactly the same as B. Nerling. I am a Landing resident and I resent the way our firemen have been pushed out. They have done a super job here, not just with fires but what they did for our Landing community association over these many past years. What they did with the kids at the Landing regatta and the Halloween bonfire, so helpful and fun too. And how nice that I could personally phone the fire marshal in years past, re. the bonfires on the beach and other things. We have been here many years and they will be sorely missed.

moment can be a lifetime for someone waiting to see if they have cancer. That moment is missed when surgeries are delayed and cancer grows. One moment is a lifetime for someone with acute pain that develops into chronic pain due to long waits and waitlists for joint replacement surgeries. Loss of quality of life runs rampant among patients waiting for surgeries due to pain, loss of hope, loss of mobility, and

Association is now complaining about the increased cost of parking downtown. People complain about any increase in taxes. So if areas such as these do not see increases, then the City of Vernon does not have the funds to cover off areas like emergency services. There will then be cutbacks, for example, the RCMP's downtown enforcement unit. If policing is cutback, then the DVA will complain about the increase of criminal activity. The cost of living, the cost of doing business for local stores (including the city) will increase. This is not a surprise for people, especially at this moment. We are all feeling the pressures and have to do the best we can. Vernon has been very fortunate to only pay 50 cents an hour for parking as an example. Times are changing. You wanted a new library and now a new art gallery.

lack of proper care in a timely manner. Surgeries done in a timely manner initiate better response in healing, depression, mobility and trust in the health care system as well as the government. I would like to believe that you have been diligently building and correcting the plans for the two acute care floors. I would also like to believe that the trust and rapport built with de Jong and B.C. Liberal Government found within the

Where do you think this money is coming from? If we are complaining about the little things such as parking costs increasing, then trust me, there will be a bigger price to pay down the road. I am sorry folks, you cannot have it both ways. If you are living paycheque to paycheque, do you go and buy a brand new car without a salary increase? Why is the City of Vernon any different without an increase in its income? I support the increase in parking. I support an increase in taxes. sierra McMullen show resPect I have lived in the Vernon area for 10 years and for the most part, I am very happy here. I have, on the other hand, one major pet peeve.

announcement on April 2012, now resting in your capable hands, Margaret MacDiarmid, is not a fallacy. We trust that the construction of the two acute care floors in the VJH Polson tower will be well under way in April 2013 as promised, with a completion date planned for within one year. As our esteemed Premier Christy Clark suggests, “Actions speak louder..." With respect, Margaret MacDiarmid, action is required right now. Please do not cause the lifetime lost in just one moment to be lost by one more patient than absolutely necessary. Would you please be so kind as to give us an update on what is happening with the execution of the promised planning and construction of the VJH Polson tower. Once again with respect, Margaret MacDiarmid, we trust that you are moving this forward and that our trust within the Ministry of Health to fulfill our requirements will be rewarded with the high quality patient-centred care that we deserve.

legs aren't co-operating and there are a few spots available. Every winter when there is snow on the ground, able-bodied drivers seem to forget where these spots are. Maybe the cold weather affects their memory and they don't display their pass. Most of these drivers are in their 20s and 30s and are probably too busy to walk the extra few steps. I appeal to the general public to please show respect for the handicapped, most are seniors, and give them their parking space. It would also be very nice if the merchants would erect vertical signs so every driver would be reminded that they might be occupying a spot meant for the handicapped. I have on many occasions driven on to another shopping location or mall when I see that my spot has been taken by a vehicle not displaying a handicap permit. d. howard

Vernon girl shows she’s got Variety From Nashville to Variety’s Got Talent, Raquel Warchol sees her star rise

Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

Like the song goes, Raquel Warchol has dreams. The diminutive-sized girl with the serious pipes also knows how to weave a song that has captured her a lot of attention. Since she could hold a note and a guitar, the now 19-year-old Vernon native has been the go-to artist when it comes to entertaining her hometown and the rest of the Okanagan. And soon the rest of province will be attuned to her talents as Warchol has been selected as one of the top 10 finalists for the Variety’s Got Talent singing competition open to B.C. residents ages 13 to 29. Her audition video, featuring Brandi Carlile’s song Dreams, earned her the position when it was selected by music industry judges, and now she has the possibility of winning the coveted top spot which could see her perform on the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon, to be broadcast around the province. Warchol, who is currently in Nashville, will be heading to Vancouver on Thursday to join the “boot camp” with fellow finalists (including a 10th person

who will be chosen by fans as the People’s Choice) to perform at the Variety’s Got Talent finals. “This is the first time I have entered,” said Warchol, who isn’t new to talent shows having placed second in the inaugural Our Kids Have Talent competition here in Vernon back in 2009. “I never thought to enter (Variety) but last year my really good friend Kailee Duggan made it to the top 10 of the People’s Choice and I really wanted to support her. When this year came up, I tried out and was told I was chosen as one of the nine finalists.” Warchol has come a long way since she first sang in front of an audience at a church Christmas concert when she was five years old. At 12, she was named best new artist at the former Okanagan (Scorpion) Music Awards, and soon after turned studio heads and music industry types, which gave her the opportunity to visit L.A. and Nashville. Since graduating from Vernon Secondary School two years ago, Warchol has focussed her attention on songwriting, and says her style has been influenced by a variety of music from rock to pop to jazz. Warchol has spent the past two weeks in Music City writing with big names such as Jimmy Olander, lead guitarist with Diamond Rio, and Stephanie Bentley, who penned Faith Hill’s 1999 crossover single Breathe as well as Martina McBride’s 2002 Top 5 hit Concrete Angel.

“I’ve been writing every day and also have some songs from a previous trip I made here, with the focus to start recording them in the studio,” said Warchol, talking on the phone from Nashville. “We’ve been filling in some holes, writing some ballads and some more funky material.” Warchol has also been working with Grammy winning producer and engineer Chad Carlson, who engineered and mixed half of Taylor Swift’s latest album, Red. “If you listen to his records, they all sound great, so I am using his strengths,” said Warchol. “I have enough material (to start recording). We are focussing on finding a few songs that I am really proud of to pitch and hopefully score a record deal.” In the meantime, Warchol is getting ready for her performance Saturday at the Variety’s Got Talent finals at the River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond and says she will return to Nashville after. She and the other finalists will be performing for judges, including talent manager Bruce Allen, arts columnist Stuart Derdeyn, musical siblings Britt and Carly McKillip of One More Girl, actress/ model Shannon Tweed and TV personality Steve Darling. The winner will be announced at the end of the show and will appear on the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon that airs live on Global BC Feb. 16 and 17. Go to www.vernonmorningstar.com/entertainment to view Warchol’s audition video.

Support local at Vernon Public Art Gallery’s jewelry party Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Public Art Gallery has organized the first annual pARTy Gems jewelry party in celebration of the talented artisans who produce hand-made products available in the gallery’s gift shop. “Jewelry is one of the most popular gifts on Valentines’ Day and the gallery would like to encourage everyone to shop local, support Okanagan artists, and be pleasantly surprised at the immense talent we have in the artwork produced by artists close to

home,” said VPAG executive director Dauna Kennedy Grant. “All four artists featured at our event live right here in the Okanagan; from Vernon, Coldstream, Lumby and Kelowna.” The artists will be present at the event, displaying their latest creations. “Each artist creates art for others to enjoy each and every day in the form of jewelry,” said Kennedy Grant. Susan Richards of Studio 410 creates works with an eclectic mix of classic and

contemporary styles, often using re-purposed components including copper, stones, and vintage beads. Lucho Vera Flores also incorporates stones into his gold and silver pendants and earrings, with precession and delicacy. Maud Besson of Ecceterra Designs brings a unique approach to design in her chunky, bold accessories that make use of leather, metals and glass beads that is fresh and new.

mixing the rhythms of Brazil and Cuba with modern jazz and funk grooves. Veres’ sensitive touch is featured in John Coltrane’s classic ballad Naima, while Wayne Shorter’s Footprints and Miles Davis’ So What exploit the round, fat tones of Graham’s flugelhorn.  Up tempo and bouncy, Sonny Rollins’ St. Thomas will get feet shuffling. The band will also play tunes by Duke Ellington, Horace Silver, Charles Mingus, Chick Corea, and Jobim, among others. Bandleader Treichel has been performing professionally for more than 20 years in a variety of genres, including Celtic folk, rockabilly, blues, reggae, and soca.    Playing with The Scattered Atoms since the late ‘90s, Treichel’s main focus for the past seven years has primarily been jazz. “Jazz to me means musical freedom — freedom from the confines of the three-minute rock or country song, freedom from the thump of an endless beat in four,” said Treichel. “It’s all about that sophisticated rhythm.” Treichel is equally complimentary of jazz aficionados. “Jazz fans listen to individual soloists but

they can tell if the band isn’t swinging because the whole thing falls apart like a cheap condo after a rainy winter on the coast,” said Treichel. Treichel also performs with several other bands in the Kamloops area, as well as pickup gigs with everyone from Henry Small to the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra.  Recent projects included a Scattered Atoms spring recording session to record their first new CD in three years. Hungarian born “sax wizard” Veres has lived in the Southern Interior for the past seven years, performing with a wide cross-section of local musicians including Cathi Marshall and Mike Turner, the Mudd Cats, the Soul Patch reunion, Dale Rasmussen, and many others. Veres appreciation for John Coltrane is reflected in his fluid phrasing and rich tone.  He also counts Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarrett, and a little Sonny Rollins among his influences. How is a well-known trumpet player and sound technician with many VJC performances under his belt.  Swinging with a smooth, lazy feel, he seems to pull sweet bop licks out of thin air. How performs with a number of different bands including the

Architect by day, bassist Brun comes from a funk and R&B background, but according to Treichel, “he always has one foot rooted in jazz.”  Brun’s bass playing has a deep, earthy tone and brings a great sense of groove to timeless classics and more modern numbers. Drummer Graham has a natural touch and feel for Latin jazz as well as soul and funk music. 

The music gets cooking when he brings his terrific energy and enthusiasm onstage with the Atoms.  Graham has an impressive performing resume including Groove Theory, The Infectuals, and Swollen Members. Jon Treichel and The Scattered Atoms take the stage at the Vernon Jazz Club (3000-31st St.) Saturday at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:15. Tickets are $20 at the Bean Scene, Bean to Cup and at www.vernonjazzclub.ca.

Rap fans are about to get Evil Morning Star Staff

The blast of hip hop continues with another well-known rapper coming to V-town. After the success of hometown boy SonReal’s appearance in Vernon on Boxing Day, 13th Floor Productions is presenting West Coast hip hop artist Evil Ebenezer at 2929 Nite Club Thursday. Evil Ebenezer Currently on his Deep Powder Tour, Evil Ebenezer is known for his mastery of cadence and is said to deliver haunting and personal lyrics showcased by raw and engaging live performances. Although the road to hip hop heights hasn’t always been smooth, Ebenezer has managed to pump out a number of industry recognized albums, and has been recognized as “the best new voice in Canadian rap,” by Exclaim Magazine. His debut album, Call Me Evil, was nominated for best hip-hop/ rap music album at the 2005 West Coast Music Awards, and its video for single, Told You So, garnered a Leo award for best music video at the annual B.C. Film Industry Night in 2006. However, Ebenezer’s entry into the arts goes back to the early

This

Valentines

‘90s. Before he was a rapper, he was a child actor and performed in Stephen King’s It and the CBC series The Odyssey, and auditioned for roles along the likes of fellow Vancouverites Ryan Reynolds and Devon Sawa. His budding career ended when he moved to rural Chilliwack where he met a movie-making eighth grader by the name of Stuey Kubrick (no relation to Stanley, we believe.) The two bonded over A Tribe Called Quest and began making student films, with Kubrick directing and Evil acting. They have continued to chase the “dream,” making videos together, with Ebenezer now as the musician/ actor and Kubrick as the director. With numerous accolades and a glowing resume including more than 250 tour dates in the last two years alone, Ebenezer has also joined up with fellow Vancouver hip hop artists Snak the Ripper and Young Sin to form the group Brass Tackz, which played the Warped Tour 2010 for crowds of 20,000 screaming fans. In the interim, he created his solo album, Evil Eye, followed by 2011 mixtape The Birds and the KushUps EP last year with fellow rapper Merkules. Joining Evil Ebenezer’s Deep Powder Tour in Vernon is Alfy’O, Great Capacity, and Big Zig, The show is hosted by James Hughes. Thursday’s show at 2929 starts at 10 p.m. Pre-sale and student (19 and up) tickets are $10 at the Downtown Internet Lounge or $15 at the door.

Ladle up a bowl of soup

inter Carnival offers so many ways to lift the winter doldrums, however it requires taking the initiative to check out the available activities, and then to get off one’s butt and either purchase the necessary tickets, or head cathi Litzenberger out to the numerous free events. For instance, take a drive up to our beautiful Silver Star and spend some time enjoying the amazing snow sculptures. The talent displayed in these works of art is incredible! Before heading up to the Star, how about putting a pot of soup into a crock-pot for later. A particular request this week was for a beef barley recipe that didn’t use tomatoes. And so today, Janice, I have two recipes for people sensitive to tomatoes. For the rest of us, feel free to add tomatoes to your liking in either recipe.

kitchen wit & wisdom

Beef Barley Soup 1 lb. beef top round steak, cut into 1/2-inch cubes* 1 tablespoon canola oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 cup chopped onion 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) beef broth 2 cups water 1/3 cup medium pearl barley 1 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper 1 cup chopped carrots 1/2 cup chopped celery 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley 1 cup frozen peas In a Dutch oven, brown beef, onion and garlic in oil; drain. Stir in broth, water, barley, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 1 hour. Add carrots, celery and parsley; cover and simmer 45 minutes. *can substitute lean hamburger instead. Note: To cook in crockpot, brown beef, onion and garlic then place in pot and add remaining ingredients; cook for 4-6 hours on high or 6-9 hrs. on low.

Quinoa Chicken Soup 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup carrots, chopped, 1/2 cup celery, chopped 1/2 cup onions or scallions, chopped 2 cups water 3 cups chicken broth or stock 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed 2 cups chicken, cooked and diced 1/4 cup parsley, chopped fine 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt In a large saucepan, heat 2 tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add carrots, celery, and onions or scallions to heated oil and fry for about 5 minutes or until vegetables just start to brown. Stir in water and chicken stock or broth and bring to a boil. Stir in quinoa, chicken, parsley, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning if necessary and serve. Note: Change this recipe up by adding chopped tomatoes and spinach or kale.

Moving towards organic

ust a year ago, this was the start of my gardening columns. Having to do some research, I learned a few things myself in the process. When I find something interesting on the Internet, I also refer to some of my gardening books to try to get the best references to some of the written articles. I just watched a French video about the organic movement and finding some hope that things are gradually changing for the best, with people asking for safer and better food. The video is 90 minutes and you travel through the U.S., Mexico, Africa, Germany, Japan and France. It also shows the devastating results of the GMO food and how the Roundup-ready seeds and plants are not working and it takes more and more pesti-

cides and insecticides. The farmers are fed up and many of them are going back to the old ways when you knew what you were eating. In Mexico, one of the farmers plants his fields with corn, beans and pumpkin seeds together. The beans as a legume puts nitrogen in the soil and they climb up the corn stalks. The pumpkins with the large leaves shade the soil. When the harvest is done, he lets the cows and chickens in the field and they do the fertilizing. I don’t have cows or chickens

but I will try these three vegetables together this year. Another vegetable I will try to grow is fennel. Fennel is often classified as both an herb and a vegetable, and can be used in many ways in the kitchen. It’s also a popular plant among herbalists, and has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy most commonly for digestive problems. Fennel has a wonderful anise flavor that works well in both savoury and sweet recipes. It’s a popular ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine. The bulbs are commonly roasted or grilled or added raw to salads, and soups. Ancient Romans ate fennel roots, leaves and seeds in their salads, breads and cakes, and enjoyed its aromatic fruits and edible shoots. There are two types

of fennel that you may want to grow in your garden, depending on how you plan to use it. Florence fennel is used more like a vegetable and is grown for its bulbous stem. Herb fennel doesn’t really produce much of a bulb and is grown for its foliage and used like an herb. Fennel should be grown in full sun, in fertile, welldrained soil. It should not be planted in the same area as dill or coriander because they will cross-pollinate. Fennel self-sows easily. In our climate, fennel is treated as an annual. You can also grow fennel in containers that are at least 10 inches deep. Fennel can grow up to five feet tall so make sure you plant it behind other plants. It is not a good companion plant for tomatoes and beans. You can plant the seeds directly in the garden

of relationship blocks and how to release them, as well as time for relationship Q and A. The event will wrap up with a Manifest Genuine Love Meditation as dessert to align participants’ energy with their desired intentions for a mutually, loving, respectful and passionate relationship. “It is an event intended for relaxed fun,

there is no obligation to share and my experience of group events is that you always get the information or message you needed to hear. Just bring your sense of curiosity, adventure and openness.” To register for the Free Online Single Ladies Virtual Dinner Club go to www.ShiftLifeDesign. com/event

A Valentine’s Day alternative for single women If you are currently single and dreading Valentine’s Day, life coach Jodi Seery invites you to join her and other single woman for the free online Single Ladies Valentines Virtual Dinner Club. “Many of my clients are single women and single moms and the thought of packaging themselves up to hustle out to a packed venue full of couples on a weeknight after a long day can sometimes feel like more work than fun,” she said. “I’ve heard several clients say ‘I just want to stay home, get in my comfortable pajamas and pour myself a glass of wine,’ yet they still long for an event and connection with others.” To answer this, Seery created the online dinner club event for Valentine’s Day. On Feb. 14 at 6 p.m., from the comfort of their own home, single women can click on a link e-mailed to them after registration that will take them to a screen where they can see and hear Seery facilitate the virtual dinner. “No one can see them, so I encourage them to pamper themselves, wear their fuzzy

Resident finds disabled teen Morning Star Staff

With the help of a Good Samaritan, a disabled 17-year-old teen was reunited with his family after going missing for almost an hour in Lake Country. On Sunday at about 11:45 a.m., the RCMP received multiple reports of a youth walking northbound along Highway 97. “The reports indicated the child did not seem appropriately dressed for the sub-zero temperatures and appeared disoriented,” said Cst. Kris Clark, with the RCMP.

“A concerned resident found the disoriented boy wandering on his property, noted that his hands were cold, his clothing was wet and immediately called police. He brought the boy inside his home to warm up and get some water to drink.” Police later reunited the Kelowna boy with his parents and learned that the boy has special needs. “The boy’s parents were in the Lake Country area at a church function and believed him to be in his class when he had actually wandered off,” said Clark.

Regional district embraces adjudication Morning Star Staff

Lake Country and North Westside residents involved in minor bylaw infractions, such as zoning and animal control complaints, can now take their disputes to an independent adjudicator working outside the traditional courtroom. The Regional District of Central Okanagan has joined more than 60 other local governments in B.C. that are already using an adjudication system piloted nine years ago and offered through the Ministry of Justice. The adjudication system eliminates the roles of court and court registries in the administration and hearing of disputes, which saves time and money and makes more efficient use of court resources. “The regional district is excited to be joining the bylaw adjudication system, participating with other local governments in the southern interior,” said Robert Hobson, RDCO chairperson. “The system will support the community by providing a simpler, speedier and more cost effective alternative for resolving minor regional district bylaw violations.” Under the adjudication system, each local government determines which bylaws it wants included. RDCO plans to use the new system to administer zoning, business licensing, animal control, water and other bylaw disputes more efficiently and effectively. RDCO will join with other local governments in the area in order to provide the adjudication service in the most efficient and economical manner possible. It will work with Kelowna, Penticton, Lake Country, West Kelowna, Summerland, the OkanaganSimilkameen Regional District and Oliver. As part of ongoing reform to the justice system, the B.C. government is increasing the number of alter-

native ways to disputes, when priate, without ing individuals

resolve approrequirto use

the courts. Court alternatives help to reduce stress, shorten the time required to resolve dis-

putes, and ultimately, cut costs for both the individual and taxpayer. “The province is

committed to ensuring residents and businesses have quick and easy access to our justice

system,” said KelownaMission MLA Steve Thomson. “I’m pleased to see

this particular service growing to include another area of the Southern Interior.”

EXPERTS Darryl Walker

Dr. Nicole Shortt, ND

What are the benefits of eating organic food? Is it really any better for you?

Eating organic food has a variety of benefits. Many studies have shown organic produce to contain higher levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other beneficial phytonutrients (flavonoids, polyphenols) than their nonorganic counterparts. In addition to the nutritional benefits, organic food was found to have lower levels of nitrates and residues of toxic chemical pesticides. This is particularly important in children because their bodies and brains are still developing. Low level pesticide exposure can affect growth, neurological function and neurological development. It is also increasingly important for pregnant women to consume organic food because pesticides can pass to the developing baby in the womb and through the breast milk. People with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods. Most people have some accumulation of toxin build up due to years of chemical exposure outside of their control. Organic food is one way to lower that toxic burden and improve your health.

Q: A:

Bluetooth uses a short range (usually 30 feet) radio frequency that allows different types of devices to communicate directly with each other. Cell phones, TV’s, GPS, computers, stereos, MP3 players and now hearing aids, can be made to talk to each other by using Bluetooth. Perhaps the biggest advantage for someone with a hearing loss is that you can keep the hearing aids in your ears and be able to have your cell phone conversations ‘stream’ directly into both ears, wirelessly. Not only will you hear the phone better in noise, you will be able to do it ‘Hands-free’. There are other applications for Bluetooth as well. TV is one. With a Bluetooth transmitter attached to your TV or stereo, your hearing aids can work as a wireless earphone set. This often gives the hearing impaired person more clarity of speech. Given all the action and background noise on today’s TV shows, this can be a distinct advantage when watching your favourite shows. These devices often have a separate volume control as well. That means your family can set the TV volume to a level they are comfortable with, and you will be able to adjust your own volume separately. This might help keep peace in the household!!!

Q: A:

Can hypnotherapy help me with my fear of flying?

Hypnosis has helped many people overcome their fear of flying and look forward to and enjoy their flight. It can replace your fears with positive thoughts and feelings of being protected and safe, calm and relaxed. Hypnosis works by reprogramming your subconscious mind and reducing your fear at an unconscious level. Imagine what it would be like to: • Enjoy planning your next out of province or country vacation • Feel relaxed and calm on your way to the airport • Get on a plane feeling comfortable and safe • Enjoy a long flight without concern or panic every time you hear a noise or hit the smallest bit of turbulenc Hypnosis can help you achieve all those feelings and more!

Q: A:

I want to install a wood burning stove in my home, is there anything I need to know before I do this?

Yes! There are a number of rules and regulations that must be strictly followed when installing a wood burning stove. First of all, check with your local by-law authorities, as there are some jurisdictions that do not allow wood burning appliances, or have strict guidelines as to what type of appliance you can use, such as high efficiency stove that has a rating recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency. Buying a new stove is always the best choice, and having it professionally installed by a WETT (Wood Energy Technical Training) certified installer, after that the stove must be inspected by a WETT certified inspector and the appropriate paperwork filled out for your insurance company. Installing the stove yourself is discouraged, however if you choose to do it yourself, remember; when in doubt, always ask an expert.

Q: A:

Don’t get down on depression Throughout the course of our lives, we all experience periods of stress, unhappiness, sadness, or grief. But when these feelings make it hard for us to get through the day, we may have what is called "clinical depression." It can challenge your ability to perform even routine daily activities. At its worst, it may lead you to contemplate, attempt, or commit suicide. Some people believe that depression is "normal" when things go wrong in life. On the contrary, clinical depression is always abnormal and always requires medical attention. The good news is that depression can be diagnosed and treated effectively in most people. Symptoms: • Feeling sad or blue • Crying spells • Loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities • Significant increase or decrease in appetite • Significant weight loss or weight gain • Agitation or irritability • fatigue or loss of energy • Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt • Thoughts of death or suicide For help with understanding depression, speak to your Remedy’sRx pharmacist.

Q: A:

What is the correct way to breathe while working out?

Breathing correctly while working out is important for a variety of reasons such as preventing head-aches and avoiding hyperventilating. When doing Strength Training there are a few schools of thought. One option is to exhale while lifting the weight and then inhale while lowering the weight. This means that exercises like the bicep curls, shoulder press, and deadlifts start with an exhalation. Exercises like the squat and bench press start with an inhalation. Another option when strength training is simply to focus on breathing in and out both normally and comfortably. When doing cardio, a key point is to take a nice deep breath when possible. Usually this is possible once a good breathing rhythm has been found. It can be difficult to breathe normally while exercising. However, no matter what technique you choose, remember to breathe, and try to breathe as comfortably and normally as possible.

When you are purchasing a home and require a mortgage, you will generally require an appraisal of the property to confirm the value of lending purposes with a down payment of more than 20% or Conventional financing. The report will compare your new home to similar homes in the area, close proximately to services/schools and a variety of other “market considerations” that the Lender may need to know, such as the location of a railway, major highway and the general condition of the security of the home. The Home inspection report is recommended to you as a buyer to be able to better plan for any short term or long term repairs and maintenance that will be required. If a home has been substantially renovated it is also helpful for your home insurance provider to know the details of the property. Both reports are requested to help you with your decision as a home buyer. You also may be requested to provide the home inspection to a Lender if there is question on the property condition. *Note for properties with a lower down payment that must have Mortgage Default insurance, it is up to the insurance company to accept the value or request an appraisal to confirm the purchase price – in this case the cost of your mortgage insurance covers the appraisal.

A Will is the basis for every estate plan. Often the Will is done with input of accredited financial planner so the best strategies can be used to pass on your estate to your beneficiaries in the most cost-efficient way. This will often require Trusts. Only a lawyer can do those.

Okanagan Regional Library is encouraging people to read Shoot! by George Bowering.

Okanagan Regional Library has initiated its first valley-wide reading project. Okanagan Reads, which runs until March 8, is aimed at promoting literacy and participants will be encouraged to read Shoot!, a western novel set in the late 1800s. “This one book/one community project provides an opportunity for people to read, discuss and connect,” said Fern Teleglow, project coordinator. “The Okanagan has a rich heritage and we hope our choice of one book will not only encourage reading, but also connect the community with the history of the area.”

Whispers are discreet. So is your new hearing device.

“Any reader familiar with the area will never look at the history, the hills and the people the same way ever again.” — Fern Teleglow

Shoot! is by George Bowering, an awardwinning Okanagan author and Canada’s first poet laureate. “He paints vitality

Lakers corral Mustangs for title fresh off 28 hours of travel, chipped in with 11. Luke Harrigan, Baxter and Chad Woodhead and Noah Ufimzeff controlled the glass. Seaton entertained VSS Tuesday night and host Kalamalka Thursday in pivotal regular-season games that will determine playoff seeding. Start times are 7 p.m. The Correlieu Clansmen of Quesnel stuffed the Howe Sound Sounders of Squamish 76-53 in Saturday’s final of the Kal Rock The Rim six-team senior boys tourney. The Lakers fell 75-55 to the Valleyview Vikings of Kamloops in the consolation final. Tye Oddy paced Kal with 15 points, while Tyson Chippendale took the Lakers’ game MVP. Earlier Saturday, the Lakers lost 66-61 to Correlieu, with Oddy hitting 14 points and Alwien Dippenaar earning MVP.

The Kalamalka Lakers grounded Princess Margaret Mustangs 45-29 in the final of the Pen-High Lakers Senior Girls Basketball Tournament Saturday afternoon. Jordan Korol and Daralyn Schepp each sank nine points and the rest of the scoring was shared evenly throughout the team. Earlier, the Lakers brushed off the George Elliot Coyotes of Lake Country 46-44, with Ann Stewart netting 18 points and Kaelyn Parmalee adding a dozen. Schepp canned 18 points as the Lakers toppled the Kelowna Christian School Knights 49-44. Parmalee fired 15 and Vicki Schley counted nine. Kal visits the Pleasant Valley Sinners of Armstrong in North Zone league play tonight, followed by the host Revelstoke Avalanche Friday night. Kelowna Christian nailed a late bucket to rally past the Fulton Maroons 79-76 in the consolation final of the Maggie tournament. Assistant coach Jacqueline Olson said three junior call-ups – Lee Richardson, Brittany Skrenek and Megahn Rouault – “were huge assets and played like they were senior girls.”

Fugel chipped in with 11 points and 14 rebounds, McKenzie earned nine points and 11 rebounds and Blundell also had nine points.

Pee Wees stoked for Coke Classic Vernon opens vs Calgary Whalers Morning Star Staff

Keith Chase was a burly 12-year-old defenceman when the Watkin Motors Mustangs won the 1980 Coca-Cola Pee Wee Invitational Hockey Classic. The Mustangs also won the B.C. title that season under coach Hubie Petersen. They got leadership from the likes of future NHLers Brent Gilchrist, Jeff Finley and Bruce Major. Now 45 and a successful businessman, Chase will guide his son, Dawson, a d-man, and the rest of the Mustangs in the 42nd Coke Classic. The Mustangs open Thursday (8 a.m.) against the Calgary Springbank Whalers at Civic Arena. The Whalers are coached by former NHLer Geoff Sanderson. “As soon as they (tourney directors) give us the bags in the dressing room (in late fall), the kids get excited right off the hop,” said Chase. “It’s like the show; you get a flood after every period and the kids get their names announced. It’s definitely a highlight. It’s such a well-run tournament.” Chase says the Mustangs enjoy success with a strong forecheck, creative cycle and putting pucks on net. The Mustangs meet the Hollyburn Huskies of West Vancouver in Thursday’s feature game at 6 p.m. and then battle the Edmonton Seera Icemen Friday at 3 p.m. The Spokane Jr. Chiefs face the Vancouver Thunderbirds at 12:30 p.m. and the Calgary Southland Sabres tangle with the Nanaimo Clippers at 2:45 p.m. in other first-round games Thursday. The semifinals go Saturday at 12:30 and 2:45 with the A final scheduled for Sunday at 5:30 p.m. The Mustangs closed the Okanagan Mainline season with a 7-3 playoff loss to the Kelowna Jr. Rockets Sunday at Civic. Kelowna won the best-of-three series in straight games. Nick Cherkowski, unassisted, Joe Eggert from Mika Burns and CJ Storey, and Dawson Chase, from Burns and Storey, handled the scoring. The Vanderhoof Bruins iced the Vernon Fix Auto Vikings 5-2 in Sunday’s final of the Prince George Bantam Tier 3 Tournament. Vernon jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead on goals from Kyle Sherwood before the Bruins equalized before the end of the first period. The Vikings earned a bye into the finals by going 3-1 in the round-robin, bouncing the Burns Lake Bruins 3-0 early Saturday behind stellar goaltending from Conor Webb, Vernon matched the physical play of

the bigger Bruins and wore them down. Stephane Richard opened the scoring in the first period on a breakaway and Logan Imrich made it 2-0 at the end of the first on a laser slap shot from the point. Carl Main completed the offence. With just a couple hours rest, the weary Vikings then bowed 3-2 to the host Cougars with Main supplying both goals. The Vernon Home Building Centre Midget Tier 1 Vipers tied the California U16 Selects 3-3 in exhibition play Saturday at Civic Arena. Riley Booth converted on a sweet end-to-end rush with goalie Jaden Campbell getting the assist on the Vipers’ first snipe.

‘Backs ice Vipers Kevin Mitchell Sports Editor

It was a battle between two goal-challenged teams going in opposite directions in the B.C. Hockey League. And it was a defenceman – 18-year-old Shane Hanna – who grabbed the scoring spotlight with a deuce as the Salmon Arm SilverBacks grounded the Vernon Vipers 3-1 Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. The savvy Hanna leads the SilverBacks with 10 goals and 40 points and was easily the most dominant player on the ice, controlling the puck pretty much every time it came his way. Vernon product Harlan Orr, with a top-shelf beauty from the left side, supplied the other Salmon Arm snipe (his seventh of the season). “Shane Hanna might be the best player in the league, value-wise,” said SilverBacks’ head coach Scott Robinson. “There might be some guys who are maybe a little better offensively, but he brings it both ways. He’s a shutdown defenceman who scores. “We’ve let him run with the puck all year long just to see what he could do and he keeps developing.” The Vipers visited the second-place Merritt Centennials Tuesday before home tilts against the West Kelowna Warriors (Saturday night) and the Victoria Grizzlies (Sunday 4 p.m.). The Vipers got off to a rare quick start with Mason Blacklock converting on a 2-on-1 rush just 33 seconds after the national anthem. Andrew Tegeler, who was one of Vernon’s

best forwards on the night, and d-man Ryan Renz drew assists. Blacklock is the Snakes’ top pointgetter with 13-12-25. Salmon Arm improved to 21-18-2-4 and 11 points ahead of the 15-21-0-7 Vipers in the Interior Division. The SilverBacks hold down the fourth and final playoff position in the division, five points back of the Warriors, 7-5 winners over the Chilliwack Chiefs. And while basic algebra does give the Vipers a slim chance at making the post-season, the Gorillas would have to implode and the Vipers would have to pretty much win out. The SilverBacks, while not officially celebrating a playoff berth, did crank up the ghettoblaster before going on a cool-down run. “It’s a pretty exciting mood because they’re (Vipers) big rivals of ours,” said Salmon Arm sniper Alex Gillies, another Vernon minor hockey grad. “Every time we play them, it’s a big game for us, no matter what the standings are. It’s always fun to come out on top.” On Orr’s insurance goal, which came just seconds after Craig Martin of the Vipers left the penalty box, 3:53 into the third period, Gillies offered, with a smile: “That was a nice shot; it went right by my face, actually. It was a good, hard shot.” The SilverBacks have allowed just five goals in their last four games, and while outplayed badly in the second period, found their stride in the final 20 minutes. “We had a flat start, but we stuck to our systems and we’ve been good defensively all year so our offence backs us up when we play

vipers’ defenceman Geoff crisfield keeps the puck from Josh Bowes of the Salmon Arm SilverBacks Saturday night at Wesbild centre. Salmon Arm won 3-1. good defence,” said Orr. Orr, who turns 18 later this month, wasn’t about to send the Vipers a sympathy card despite being a former fan. “When I was younger, they were always in first place. I’m not feeling sorry for them though.” Vernon outshot Salmon Arm 35-30 in a physical, tight-checking affair. Hanna, Orr and Viper captain Brett Corkey, who blocked numerous shots and carried the puck with authority, were the three stars. Both Adam Clark of the SilverBacks and Danny Todosychuk of the Vipers were solid in net. Corkey logged heavy minutes after d-man

Marc Hetnik left the game early after being slammed into the side boards by Alex Jewell, who was ejected with a check from behind major. Hetnik missed Tuesday’s game with a head injury. “They’ve got a good goalie down there,” said Corkey. “Clark played a great game so kudos to him. We were battling in front of the net and just couldn’t get the bounces tonight. I hate to say it, but that’s kind of been the way our season’s been going, not getting the puck luck. You can’t always blame it on that though. I thought the effort was there tonight so you gotta be proud of that, but we’re definitely disappointed.”

Rebels earn Petite split Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Advertising Works Rebels earned a Petite ringette weekend split, starting with a 13-8 win over West Kelowna Saturday at Royal LePage Place. Madison Fox led the Rebels with four goals and two assists, with Abygayle Williamson pocketing another four snipes. Hailey Quiring chipped in with 2+2, Alyssa Carter had 2+1 and Danika Bellamy added a single. Fox and Williamson each collected 2+1 as the Rebels fell 6-5 to Shuswap White Sunday in Salmon Arm. Kathryn Simpson had the other goal, as the advertisers pulled their goalie in the last minute, but were unable to tie it up. In other Petite action, the DCT Chambers Voltage zapped the Kelowna Ringers 14-5. The Bolts got balanced offence from: Grace Cornell (3+3), Jaden Scott (2+2), Kalen Webster (2+1), Mackenzie Munroe (2+1), Amy Demetrick (2), Emma Elders(1+4), Bryn Taylor-Hawes and Emma Lochhead. Levi Knopf and Carly Newman were stellar defensively in front of Kenzie Koshure. In Novice play Saturday, the Davidson Lawyers Orcas toppled the Kelowna Icebreakers 11-9. Paige Neufeld, Mackenzie Gilman, Tye Krause and Daine Thoma all pocketed doubles, singles coming from Sierra Lochhead, Chayse Krause and Brooklyn Young. The Big Kahuna Blue Dragons shaded Kelowna Black 5-4 in Novice action Sunday at Priest Valley Arena. Black raced out to a 2-0 lead in the first period before Kristin Ho got the Dragons on the board late in the frame. With netminder Kaila Summerfelt anchoring the defence, the Dragons picked up the pace in the second period, with Ho (2), Emma Roine and Brynn Korol scoring to secure the win. Kierra Newman earned two assists and Alassa Johnson had one. In an all-Vernon Bunny battle, the Blue Lightning bounced the Black Panthers 6-4. The Lightning’s Aimee Skinner and Makenna Jackson combined for seven points (3+4), while Peyton Trevelyan, Jordan Tung, Kristen Francks all pocketed singles. Assists went to Madison Edgar and Kennedy Jackson. The Panthers three goals from Sierra Fernley, and a single from Lauren Cook. Sophie Winstanley and Lucia Manton were steady while under attack from

the Lightning shooters. Payton Glowa and Taylor Stewart added great hustle for the Cats, and Brianna Visser showed a knack for creating turnovers.

Any time you score 10 goals in a pair of Kootenay International Junior Hockey League weekend games, chances are you’re going to succeed. The problem for the North Okanagan Knights is nine of the 10 came in a single game. In the other one, the Knights struggled to finish as they fell 3-1 to the host Osoyoos Coyotes Saturday night at the Sun Bowl. It wasn’t for a lack of opportunity, said Knights’ head coach Kris Mallette. “We missed legitimately four or five breakaways in the first period alone. They were extremely aggressive with finishing their checks and we were creating so many odd-man rushes. “Their goalie (Jessie Gordichuk, 38 saves, first star) played well and we could not capitalize on our scoring opportunities.” The Knights, who (32-13-1-2) hold a share of second overall with the Nelson Leafs (32-13-2-1), face a pair of Doug Birks Divisional games this weekend. They entertain Kevin Kraus’ Revelstoke Grizzlies (24-18-31) Friday at Nor-Val Sports Centre, and visit the Sicamous Eagles (28-132-4) Saturday in the Shuswap. With the Knights down 2-0 late in the second, Brett Hawrys (14th goal) finally converted on one of

those breakaway attempts, burying a shorthanded goal, assisted by Colton Thibault. Mallette said the Knights’ defence got caught napping on Coyotes’ first goal, an open-net tap-in for Evan Last (22nd) after netminder Dustin Nikkel made a solid first save. A puck handling error by Nikkel (40 saves) led to Taylor Jordan’s shorthanded winner midway through the second period. Jordan (17th) knocked down the North Okanagan keeper’s clearance attempt and skated in alone on an empty net. Troy Maclise added an insurance marker in the third period in support of Gordichuk. North Okanagan’s powerplay went 0-for-7, the Coyotes’ 0-for-5. “Our guys were buying in on the penalty kill, getting sticks in lanes and doing the little things,” said Mallette. “Come 5-on-5 we didn’t have that same intensity.” Knights’ rookie Anothony Ruggerio sparked his team by taking on Osoyoos’ Brett Anderson in a third-period scrap, earning a knockdown on his opponent. Meanwhile, the Eagles dumped the Grizzlies 2-1 in a Sunday matinee. Vernon’s Aaron Brandoli earned third star for his 53-save showing for the Grizz.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

COUNT THE WINNERS TO BEAT THE CONTRACT Sebastian Vettel, who last November became the youngest ever Formula One Grand Prix driver to win three world championships, said, “As a driver, your target is always to be with the most competitive team possible.” As a bridge player, your target is always the number of tricks needed to make or to break a contract. When on defense, always ask yourself where your side might take those tricks -- what I call the defensive target. In this deal, how should East defend against three notrump after West leads the club queen? West might have made a

takeout double on the first round, which would have shown four spades and four or more clubs. His pointcount was low, but if he could have found a fit with his partner, maybe his side could have done well. North was a trick too strong for his three-diamond rebid, but nothing else was better. And South went for the nine-trick game. It is common in no-trump to return your partner’s suit. (In a trump contract, this happens much less often.) Here, though, if East wins with his club ace and leads back the club nine, how many tricks will declarer take? Even if South is void in diamonds, he must have at least 10 winners: two hearts,

seven diamonds and one club -- not good. The only chance for the defense is to cash four spade tricks immediately. East should take his club ace and shift to the spade queen. Here, East and West take the checkered flag.
