VJH tower floors get green light RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Congestion is being eased at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. It was announced Thursday that $29.6 million will go towards 60 beds on the two unfinished floors in the Polson tower — 14 new and the remainder from the existing wards. “There is a lot of pressure currently in the hospital that won’t happen any longer,” said Margaret MacDiarmid, health minister. Thursday’s announcement will see the total number of beds at VJH increase from 148 to 162. Construction of the two floors should begin in the fall, with the project completed by the summer of 2015. Of the $29.6 million, $22 million is coming from the provincial government. MacDiarmid announced that the remainder of the money will come from the North Okanagan-Columbia-Shuswap Regional Hospital District and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation. However, both organizations say they have not committed any dollars at this time. “We’ve had discussions about the project and there is support,” said Rhona Martin, NOCSRHD chairperson, adding, though, that a final decision will be made as part of the 2013 budget. Foundation officials say that while they support development of the additional beds, the volunteer board has not had a discussion on a financial contribution. Any funds from the regional hospital district would come on top of the money it spent to shell-in the two floors for possible development when the rest of the tower was built. Victoria did not contribute to shelling in the floors. When asked if shelling in the floors would be considered NOCSRHD’s involvement, MacDiarmid said she could not speak for the hospital district and, “They are very supportive and they will be financially contributing.” In April 2012, the ministry stated the two top floors in the Polson tower would be developed for acute care beds. However, specifics on the number of beds and construction timeline were only provided Thursday. “It’s great,” said Dr. Michael Concannon, part of a group of physicians who lobbied to end patients in hallways and cancelled surgeries. “Being able to take patients out of the 1940s ward and into a state-of-the-art hospital is huge.” Connanon stated he is satisfied with

Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid announces $29.6 million will be spent on beds in the Polson tower at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. the government’s plans given that these are “challenging economic times and resources are tight. We have done very well here in Vernon.” The doctors were joined in their lobbying efforts by Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA. “I’m pleased we are moving forward,” said Foster after Thursday’s announcement. Foster admits that the process determining the future of the project took considerable time. “Other requests were put in with the pack and there was back-and-forth between the Interior Health Authority and the ministry about long-term needs.” Most of the beds will be in single-rooms, which will allow hospital staff to better control infections because four-bed and doubleoccupancy wards will be abandoned. Once beds move into the tower, vacant spaces in the existing part of the hospital will be available for future needs. While there are specifics about capital construction, no details were provided about

how much money will be needed for nurses and other staff on the two floors. “There will be a budget to operate those beds,” said MacDiarmid. Mark Olsen, Vernon-Monashee NDP candidate, is not impressed with the govern-

ment’s plans. “It’s 14 beds they’re adding and they are announcing it just before a tough election,” he said. “They shouldn’t be playing political games with an announcement and photo-op.”

Sports complex question on track

Carnival SmileS

Behind-the-scenes details have been firmed up for Greater Vernon’s spring referendum. Regional District of North Okanagan directors adopted the question Wednesday that will go before voters April 6. Residents will be asked to authorize the borrowing of $7.5 million to construct a sports complex at Okanagan College, with the funds repaid over 20 years. “Things are in place to go forward,” said Patrick Nicol, chairperson. “It’s an important juncture in recreation history for Greater Vernon.” It was also decided Wednesday that instead of people voting in their specific jurisdictions, residents will be able to cast ballots at any of the three polling stations (Priest Valley Gym, BX Elementary and Coldstream Elementary). “This is a community project and the vote will be a community decision,” said Jeanne Byron, corporate officer, of the move towards a voting-at-large structure. On Thursday, the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee agreed to pursue grants for the project. “If we don’t do it, we won’t get a grant,” said director Jim Garlick. The agencies being targeted are Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust and the Southern Interior Beetle Action Coalition. “Even if we get a roofed seating area, that’s a good thing,” said Garlick.

“This is a community project and the vote will be a community decision.” — Jeanne Byron

Advance polling will be held March 27 and April 3 at the Schubert Centre, the Coldstream municipal office and the regional district office. The pace of public awareness about the referendum and the need for the facility is also being enhanced. New brochures have been printed, while large posters will be installed at high-profile locations and a website is updated regularly. Supporters are also speaking to service clubs and there will be open houses at the Village Green Centre before April 6. But directors believe there is some information that still needs to be emphasized. “There is debt being retired to the tune of $6.5 million over the next three years,” said director Bob Fleming, adding that will help offset the impact of borrowing $7.5 million. There have been suggestions from some residents that the sports complex should go to Kin Race Track but Nicol insists both sites are needed for recreational activities. “Some believe it’s an either or but Kin and this property are part of our (longterm) plans,” he said.

Neighbour helps police nab suspects Morning Star Staff

A concerned neighbour helped Vernon police in an arrest and recovery of stolen property A homeowner reported a break-and-enter to her home in the 3000 block of 23rd Street Tuesday at about 2:20 p.m. “At nearly the same time, an observant citizen in the area spotted a male and female walking on 23rd Street with what appeared to be full backpacks,” said Gord Molendyk, with the RCMP. “They also had one heavy object concealed under a blanket or tarp and a pair of women’s

boots. This observant caller noticed things were not quite as they should be at a neighbour’s home and their car was not in the driveway.” The resident followed the man and woman from a safe distance and watched them enter a unit at a motel. She then called the RCMP. “The descriptions of the suspect match two individuals who are very well known to police,” said Molendyk. “While police were conducting surveillance of the unit, both suspects were apprehended and brought to Vernon cells.”

Officers also searched the motel unit and they recovered a number of items reported stolen by the homeowner. “Other items seized in this search are believed to be from other reported break-and-enters and theft files in the city,” said Molendyk. The suspects were expected to appear in court late Wednesday. “This arrest was a direct result of a good neighbour acting on what she felt was not normal activity in her neighborhood,” said Molendyk.

Project lends helping hand Jennifer Smith

Morning Star Staff

A community venture is making home-ownership dreams come true in Vernon. The Project Build Society has announced its latest project, which will grant approximately 75 families the gift of home ownership. Working with developers, trades people, financial institutions, realtors and businesses, the society will construct three communities in Vernon. And everyone involved is also asked to give a little bit – which in turn provides free down payments for the families being assisted. “These families we are putting into houses have been dreaming of having a home most of their lives,” said Leanne Hammond, executive director of the society, which is the only non-profit society of its kind in Canada. “They’re doing their best...and they just can’t seem to be able to save enough for a down payment.” Maureen D’Angelo, project sales and marketing, says the project can dramatically change life for families. “We all believe that we change the lives of children.” The three projects, which are expected to break ground within the next three months (and could be completed in another five to six months), include: 14 units overlooking Okanagan Lake at Asana (duplexes), 28 Heritage Drive units at Copper Crest Vista (fourplexes and duplexes) and 33 condo units at the Terraces on Turtle Mountain. The units range in price from approximately $300,000 up to $400,000 (depending on the unit and family requirements). The projects are targeted towards middle class families, which could range from a single parent and children to a working two-parent family. It could be a family renting or one who owns an existing home but needs to expand. But they must be able to qualify for and carry a mortgage. “They can afford the mortgage payments but can’t afford the down payment,” said D’Angelo. The project recently completed similar projects

Jennifer Smith/morning Star

Leanne Hammond, Project Build Society executive director, speaks to a crowd of developers, realtors, bankers and media about the 75 units being created with down payments being paid for families struggling to break into the housing market. in Kelowna and Lake Country, where Hammond says there is a desperate need for affordable housing. “In the Okanagan, Kelowna in particular, we fall into the least affordable/extremely unaffordable housing situation, and Vernon’s not far behind,” said Hammond. “This is the kind of market where there needs to be this kind of help for families.” That situation is one the City of Vernon has identified as a priority to address, therefore this project, which also benefits business and the economy, is applauded. “This works very well with our affordable housing strategy,” said Coun. Catherine Lord. Families can download applications at www. ProjectBuild.ca. The process includes sharing your story, an interview with Hammond and passing the committee screening process. As part of its project, the society is also giving the Vernon Community Land Trust $1,000.

Justice sentences gang members for roles Morning Star Staff

The final pair of five members of a North Okanagan criminal organization, referred to by police as The Greeks, convicted in a string of North Okanagan killings have been sentenced to jail. Pete Manolakos and Douglas Brownell found out their fate Thursday morning in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver. Justice Bill Smart sentenced Manolakos – whom Smart called the leader of the gang – to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years. That was for a first-degree murder conviction in relation to the death of Ronald Thom in 2005. Manolakos also received a sentence of 15 years, to be served concurrent, for a manslaughter conviction in connection with the death of David Marniuk in 2004.

Manolakos was credited with 13 years of pre-trial time already served. Smart sentenced Brownell to 17 years in jail for manslaughter convictions in relation to

the deaths of Thom and Thomas Bryce in 2004. Brownell was given 12 years pre-trial credit. Three other gang members – Dale Sipes, Leslie Podolski and

Sheldon O’Donnell – were sentenced earlier to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years for their roles in the murders of Thom, Bryce and Marniuk.

Besides four-laning, there has also been the suggestion of a traffic light at the highway and McLeod Road. No commitments were made by Polak and ministry staff. “They listened and they are well aware of the issues,” said Brown, adding that other government policies are leading to increased traffic. “There are no doctors in Enderby so they need to keep the highway safe so people can travel to Vernon.” Enderby council had also anticipated meeting with Polak but that didn’t occur. “Her schedule

Beyond this, some opposition politicians claimed Foster may be in a conflict of interest chairing the committee because Doyle had raised concerns about expense documents related to renovating his Vernon office. Foster has previously stated that he did not know about Doyle’s report into his office when he was appointed to the committee. “Mr. Doyle deserved to have his six-year contract renewed quickly and without needless controversy. It’s clear the Liberals didn’t like the job he was doing,” said Olsen. Foster would not comment directly to accusations that the Liberals were upset with Doyle. “Mr. Olsen is entitled to his opinion.

tion in boots and badges,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. The RCMP has stated it bills the city for 50 officers and 2013 funding levels will lead to 48. However, Sawatzky says the city was actually billed for 48 officers at the end of 2012. “That’s been the average number over the last five years,” he

said. “There is no difference between the 48 and what we’ve been billed for.” Supt. Reg Burgess has anticipated the direct impact with fewer officers will be undercover operations on prostitution and drug activities downtown. He has also suggested the detachment

will have less flexibility when officers are injured or ill and members may have to be shifted away from initiatives like school liaison and foot patrols. But Sawatzky believes service levels should remain consistent given the average of 48 officers. “With the priorities of council, the detach-

Drugs found after van pulled over Morning Star Staff

An RCMP officer noticed a woman driving a red 1991 Astro Van Monday at 3:30 p.m. in the area of 43rd Avenue and 29th Street in Vernon. This is significant because the same officer dealt with this driver and charged her on Jan. 8 for driving while prohibited. “He was pretty sure she Gord Molendyk was still prohibited from driving,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk about Monday’s stop. Things only got worse for the driver, a 47-yearold Vernon woman.

Real estate slows

While the officer was dealing with her, he noticed what he believed to be cocaine in plain view in the van. The investigation led to the seizure of more than $3,900, 14.63 grams of cocaine, 8.54 grams of marijuana and a number of unknown pills. The van was impounded as well. The suspect is expected to face charges of prohibited driving and possession for the purpose of trafficking. Molendyk said she could face additional counts after further analysis of the pills are done. The woman was released on a promise to appear to attend court at a later date.

Real estate activity got off to a slow start in 2013. Overall in January, there were 50 property sales in the North Okanagan worth $13.4 million. That compares to 73 properties worth $24.6 million during the same month in 2012. “Last year, the housing market remained fairly stable, with a good build-up in sales in many segments for most of the year and only losing strength during the closing two months,” said Rob Shaw, Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board president. “This slowdown carried over into January which is typically not a strong month, and can be partially attributed to the dreary winter weather that keeps people indoors.” Total residential sales for the month were down 29.7 per cent over last year – from 64 at $21.7 million to 45 units valued at $12.1 million. Single-family home sales declined 40.5 per cent to 22 units compared to 37 in January 2012.

Making cents of change

A

nickel for your thoughts just doesn’t quite have the same ring. With the demise of our penny (the copper coins ceased circulation Monday), all those one-cent sayings will also eventually be dropped. So say goodbye to the days of pinching pennies as nothing will cost a pretty penny anymore. While the decision to phase out pennies is expected to save our country $11 million a year, it could come at a cost to consumers and businesses. Here’s the scoop: all purchases ending in one, two, six or seven will be rounded down to the nearest nickel. Purchases ending in three, four, eight or nine are rounded Jennifer Smith up. So that .99 cent sale item that used to add up to $1.11 with tax will actually be a penny cheaper. Therefore depending on your purchase total, you could end up with a few more or a few less pennies to rub together. The trick to avoid paying more (ie. if your coffee costs $1.43) is to pay with plastic, since only cash transactions require rounding. If you’re paying debit or credit there will be no change (literally speaking). For those who do pay with cash, I wonder if those ‘take a penny leave a penny’ trays will be replaced with nickel options? Those with pennies stashed in drawers, piggy banks and pockets also need not fret that their change is worthless. Pennies will still be accepted indefinitely by businesses who choose to accept them (they don’t legally have to but the fact is pennies will still hold their monetary value). And you can still cash in any rolls of pennies at the bank. There’s no time limit for redeeming your coins.

At rAndoM

While making cents made no sense, one NDP MP is now eyeing the nickel, and eventually the quarter. Winnipeg Centre MP Pat Martin plans to launch a private-member’s motion to eliminate the five cent coin and re-jig the rest of Canada’s currency. That’s not all that’s changing on the Canadian scene. n Starting July 1, 2013, Canada will begin issuing ePassports to new applicants and renewing passport holders. The new passports will feature enhanced security using chip technology, plus the choice for a five or 10-year duration, but they too will come with a cost. Application and renewal fees for an adult passport will jump from the current $87 to $120 ($160 for a 10-year). Kids passports currently costs $37 for children three to 15 and $22 for kids under three, but the new travel documents will cost $57 for all youth. I suppose you’re actually saving money with a 10-year passport. But what good is that if no one can recognize you in the photo because you’re a decade older, cut and died your hair and added a few extra pounds? Try explaining that one to the border authorities. With such threats as identity theft, terrorists and criminals entering our country I suppose the enhanced passports have their case. But anyone who has ever been through customs (whether here or abroad) can tell you that airport security is already pretty thorough. Heck, just applying for a passport is a strict process. n Another change this year, just in B.C., is abandoning the recently introduced HST. Following a public outcry, British Columbia is reverting to the old GST/PST system April 1, but it will be a new version of the old combination. It will take some time to make cents of all this change, but in the meantime I question whether it’s penny wise or pound foolish.

Plans to complete the top two shelled-in floors at Vernon Jubilee Hospital are finally here. Thursday’s announcement by Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid has long been sought, and fought for. Demands for more beds have been made by politicians, physicians, nurses and patients alike. Almost every one throughout the region either knows of or has personally experienced the impact of lack of beds at the hospital. Patients being treated in waiting rooms, allocated to gurneys in the halls and enduring lengthy wait times. So 60 new beds in the Polson tower will go a long way to easing the congestion that has long plagued VJH. But that’s not to say it will erase the problem. As our citizenry continues to age and fall victim to disease there will always be demands for healthcare, both emergent and ambulatory. And even though there are additional beds, they don’t necessarily come with additional healthcare staff. But at least the wait times will be made a little more comfortable for more patients. There are also still some figures to sort out. The government has committed a major chunk, $22 million, for the project, which has a total price tag of $29.6 million. The remainder is expected to come from the North OkanaganColumbia-Shuswap Regional Hospital District and the VJH Foundation. It’s still uncertain how those amounts will be collected. But one could expect that regional hospital taxes will climb and the greater community will also be asked to help pitch in. However, the will is there to make this happen and we’re confident that all involved will rise to the occasion to ensure all floors of the Polson tower are serving the community’s health needs for years to come.

Sports complex fits college's plans

ecently, a letter to the editor raised some concerns of the proposed sport complex location. Okanagan College’s decision to offer the property to the Regional District of North Okanagan for a nominal lease fee ($1 annually) was made after a thorough review of the institution’s capital master plan and the longterm education plan. Development plans for the Vernon campus will not be compromised by the proposed sports complex. Working with the Regional District of the North Okanagan to accommodate a community need is perceived as a beneficial partnership that answers our mandate and mission as it will contribute to the social, economic and physical well-being of our students and citizens of the North Okanagan. Jane Lister, Regional dean North Okanagan Okanagan College iNdepeNdeNt LiviNg Cuts It's sad to say, both the federal and provincial governments continue to make fiscal changes to organizations supporting individuals that have no huge block of voting power, no organized lobby group to pay their way into the good graces of the government and definitely no unions to help them voice their concerns to the public. These individuals are not talking about class size or working 15 minutes longer or less a day, or pension plans. They are dealing with the ability to get fed, pay rent, get clothed. It made me sad to read Mr. Mayes' comments that "If they (Independent Living) have a solid program..." Independent Living has a fantastic program and stellar staff that's been flying by the seat of their pants for years selling dog calendars, having cycling events and garage sales and still maintaining their great reputation among individuals with disabilities in the North Okanagan. If only Mr. Mayes had said that instead, and then said, "And I'll support them with every ounce of support I can give them." Because that is the kind of comment they deserve. I’ll be curious to see if any other political party representative in the North Okanagan, federal, provincial or even municipal, speaks up

to support the needs of individuals who are differently-abled than the majority of the population. As we all age and change in our own abilities, the need to support or grow existing services and to improve legislation that deals with these matters will impact us all more and more. Existing services are already minimal and need to be enhanced. What will the future bring when the boomers reach the peak of their mature years in the near future? Joanne Feenstra waLkiNg the beat It was with dismay that I read the Jan. 23 opinion column written by Richard Rolke regarding Vernon city council not approving the RCMP's request of a 6.7 per cent increase in their budget. I take great exception to the statement that removing two officers will lead to chaos in the streets. Mr. Rolke goes on to say that it will be interesting to see who is going to be right about public safety - Burgess or Sawatzky? The last time I checked, there were six councillors as well as the mayor who will be making the budgetary decisions for our city. Take a moment to look at any study that has been done on what creates a safe, viable downtown community and you will find that it's people that are needed the

most. By having a vital welcoming downtown core, you encourage people from all walks of life to visit. A busy street is not a very hospitable place for the criminal elements of our society. I truly hope that the money for the 30th Avenue revitalization project is approved by council as we are on the right track, let's keep going. I also believe that the hard work that has been done by our DVA in promoting downtown events for everyone to enjoy and the commitment by our city and social agencies to support the homeless and needy has greatly contributed to the decline of crime in our downtown area in the past four years. This type of rhetoric from a reporter and newspaper, which claim to have the citizens of Vernon best interests at heart, makes it much harder to have a meaningful discussion on the future of our city. I expect better of both. h. Fraser a Few thOughts When the Christmas season makes its exit for the year, human goodwill seems to follow it. That statement is an unfortunate fact. Only four days into the new year, I rode the scooter I borrowed to the grocery store. While crossing the highway in Enderby with my little dog on my lap, the

scooter slid sideways on the ice and down I fell — scooter, dog and all. I was able to grab the leash of my tiny dog so he would not be run over. The traffic coming towards me did not seem to acknowledge the sprawled body on the icy pavement or the scooter lying on its side. They simply skirted around me and kept going. Slowly, I was able to get back on my feet, straighten the scooter upright and push it back to the sidewalk on my own, but I was in pain. I twisted my back and bruised my leg and arm, but I suppose I should be thankful someone did not run me over. Two days later, I found myself in another dilemma, having to go to the drug store for necessities. After the bad experience with the scooter, I decided walking was the better choice. Walking is slow and painful for me, especially in the snow. It was snowing quite heavily and again the traffic drove by, not seeming to care about the difficult time I was having while walking. If people would only stop to realize their Christmas season could last all year for themselves and others if they would help others at times through the year. Helping others is a gift they can give themselves because it is so very rewarding knowing they care enough to give — if only a speck of

their time and a helping hand up. We are not put on this earth to see through one another but to see one another through. I am happy to say that while walking back, and only one block from my home, a woman did stop to give me a ride. I was so thankful and may God bless her richly. Fern everett

Smoke alarms urged It’s a move so simple and so profound, said B.C.‘s justice minister, that it will reduce provincial fatalities. Shirley Bond was at Vernon Fire Rescue Services’ downtown hall Tuesday to announce the provincial government is again throwing its support behind a campaign to have every home in B.C. equipped with a working smoke alarm. “The issue of having and maintaining a working smoke alarm is critical to everyone in our families,” said Bond, accompanied at the Vernon fire hall by Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick, Vernon fire chief Keith Green, Mayor Rob Sawatzky and Victoria fire chief Jeff Lambert, representing the Fire Chiefs’ Association of B.C. “The goal has been set by the Fire Chiefs Association of B.C. and the goal since the campaign began is to have everyone in B.C. having a working smoke alarm.” In May 2012, smoke alarm manufacturer Kidde Canada and Black Press – owner of The Morning Star – jumped on board the campaign by contributing more than $400,000. Kidde Canada provided 5,000 smoke alarms for distribution to vulnerable areas such as households in low income areas, rural areas and First Nations reserves.

Vernon fire chief Keith Green (left) and Victoria fire chief Jeff Lambert (right) watch as Justice Minister Shirley Bond demonstrates that using a broom handle is an easy way to test if a smoke alarm is working. Bond was in Vernon Tuesday to announce the government’s continuing support of a Fire Chiefs’ Association of B.C. campaign to install a functioning smoke alarm in every B.C. home. Black Press, owner of The Morning Star, put together a strategic multi-media investment to help the campaign reach its readers. Vernon Fire Rescue Services teamed up with Silver Star Rotary and Johnston Meier Insurance to provide and install free smoke alarms in two Vernon mobile home parks last September and November. “The reason we chose those places, is

that we know seniors and children are at most risk to fire injury and fatalities,“ said Green. “We wanted to hone our efforts where we’ve had very tragic circumstances with fires in the past at modular homes. I thought it was a good launch point. The community was very appreciative.” The campaign will continue in 2013 with Green announcing that Okanagan Restoration has climbed on board

as a sponsor and will help with installing and replacing alarms that have been hard-wired into homes, as opposed to battery-operated smoke detectors. “I am encouraged that people in Vernon are leading grass roots efforts to offer their neighbours help by installing and testing fire alarms,” said Bond. “The smoke alarm campaign is one of the simplest ways to protect your family and neighbours. It’s a family and community-led effort.” Bond said fire data research from B.C. and Canada is staggering. She said 70 per cent of homes that caught fire in B.C. between 2006 and 2011 did not have a functioning smoke alarm, and that a working smoke alarm can reduced fire deaths by as much as 32 per cent and 76 lives across Canada every year. The alarm campaign also encourages people not to just to install the devices but test the alarms at least twice a year. Along with announcing ongoing support for the smoke alarm campaign, Bond presented Kelowna fire service mentor and advocate Ann Hancock with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. Hancock was recognized for her 20 years of fire service leadership. She has, for the past 14 years, been the administrator for the Fire Chiefs’ Association of B.C.

News Candidate shares plan in Vernon RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Joyce Murray has set her sights on trouncing the Conservative government. The Vancouver MP says that if she is elected federal Liberal leader, her goal is to bring about a change in Ottawa. “I’m the only candidate with a plan,” said Murray, who will be at a no-host lunch at Vernon’s Pantry restaurant Joyce Murray Saturday at noon. Murray believes the only way to defeat the Conservatives is for the Liberals to work with the NDP and

the Greens and run a single candidate against Conservative MPs who won with a minority. “I want to build the party and co-operate to defeat Stephen Harper,” she said. As she travels the country, Murray says there is a lot of concern about the current government. “They do not like what Harper has done to democracy — the secrecy,” she said. “The prime minister’s omnibus bills are undemocratic. There is no consultation and over time, they will damage the environment.” A focus for Murray is the economy. “Young people are concerned about what opportunities are there for them,” she said. “They want a job that fits their education and they want to know there will be social programs for them.” Murray would like to see government invest in green technology. “It’s about high value jobs. It’s about innovation.” There are nine candidates pursuing the Liberal leadership, but Murray, who owns a reforestation company, is confident that she will rise to the top. “My message is doing pretty well with social media,” she said. “I was trending on Twitter during the last debate.” Murray has been in Vernon several times before, and she says meeting with Canadians is a critical part of her leadership campaign. “I want to understand the issues of communities like Vernon,” she said.

Lake Country targets tax hike RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

There’s not a lot of wiggle room in Lake Country’s budget. Council met Tuesday to hammer out a 2013 financial plan, which includes a three per cent tax increase. “It doesn’t leave us with much (to work with),” said Coun. Owen Dickie. Of that three per cent, 2.65 per cent is designated for policing and transit. “We are running on a really tight budget.” The positive news, though, is that $300,000 was saved by last year’s internal restructuring that saw some staffing positions eliminated. Council met again Thursday but the results of those budget discussions were not known at press time. “There are some additional requests to go through. We would like to do everything but we can’t,” said Dickie. The green light has already been given to increasing the Beasley Park field lights and community centre renovations from $500,000 to $620,000. The additional $120,000 will come from the capital works reserve. “The cost of lighting is more than expected because of the water table there,” said Dickie. “And the construction industry is starting to pick up and quotes are coming in higher than anticipated.” A three per cent tax increase equates to an extra $45 for a home assessed at $489,000.

Statistics support the concept that the earlier CPR is started on a patient, the higher the probability is of it being successful and it makes sense that when more people are able to perform CPR, the chances of it being applied early when it is most needed, increases substantially. The first medical responder program (FMR) program delivered by Vernon Fire Rescue Services helps to supplement the effectiveness of a quick medical response and is designed to support a very busy B.C. ambulance service. The FMR program has been directly responsible for saving six lives in 2012 with the early application of defibrillation and in most of those cases, CPR was initially applied by a friend or relative. The significance of these two initiatives in our community can be easily equated to the number of people who are alive today and enjoying more time with their families as a result of a quick medical response supported by the early application of CPR. Feb. 16 is the date of this year’s mass CPR training. You can register in person today and Saturday at the Village Green Centre or call 1-888-CPR-LUNG and have a receptionist take your information.

Springbank surges by Mustangs KeVin MiTChell Sports Editor

Springbank is best known for housing Western Canada’s largest amusement park 10 kilometres west of Calgary. And while Vernon Civic Arena is hardly Calaway Park when it comes to frills and spills, the Springbank Whalers pulled their own 360 Tilt-A-Whirl Thursday morning with a 4-3 win over the Watkin Motors Mustangs. The Whalers were down 3-0 before going into comeback mode to open the 42nd Coca-Cola Pee Wee Invitational Hockey Tournament. “Don’t let up,” said Whaler ultra-talented captain Jonathan Tychonick, when asked what the motto on the bench was with Vernon up by three. “We knew we could come back. We just needed more effort out there.” The Whalers, whose head coach is former NHL sniper Geoff Sanderson (189 goals in

six seasons with the Hartford Whalers), claimed the Calgary All-State and Medicine Hat Venom tournaments earlier this season. They are missing a couple of regulars on this trip, but being a first-place team in Calgary has them among the pre-tournament favourites. The Mustangs, who went 4-10-1 in the Okanagan Mainline league before getting swept by Kelowna Rockets in the playoffs, were hardly in awe of the Whalers. C.J. Storey converted at 4:12, from captain Dylan Sedlacek. Towering forward Coleton Bilodeau clicked 74 seconds later with d-man Keeghan McRae drawing the assist. Josh Bridge made it 3-0 Vernon five minutes later with Powell Connor and Caden Bracken getting the helpers. “We just came out of the gate flying and then we kind of just let off,” said Sedlacek, a smooth-skating d-man who turned 13 a few weeks ago.

Vernon rinks on the board at B.C. championships Morning Star Staff

Each of Vernon’s three entries into the Canadian Direct Insurance B.C. Men’s Curling Championships is in the win column in Parksville. Defending champion Jim Cotter opened the 16-team spiel with a 12-3 win over White Rock’s Richard Brower Wednesday morning. He capped the game with a huge six-ender in nine. “They were down points so they were going for it,” said Cotter, who is suffering from a brutal head cold. “There were rocks in play, so that’s usually what happens.” The Cotter crew – third Jason (Gunner) Gunnlaugson), second Ty Griffith and lead Rick Sawatsky – then bowed 8-5 to New Westminster’s Andrew Bilesky in the afternoon draw. “We jumped out to a lead and had some picks cost us some points, which gave them momentum,” said Cotter. “We didn’t play a very good 10th end.” Mark Longworth recovered from a 7-5 opening day loss to New Westminster’s Brent Pierce by grounding Abbotsford’s Dean Joanisse 10-6 Thursday morning. Longworth, supported by third Jamie Sexton, second Hugh Bennett and his son, Michael, at lead, was up 6-4 after six ends and put the game away with a triple in nine.

Trevor Perepolkin shaded Joanisse 6-5 Wednesday afternoon before falling 8-6 to Pierce that night. Perepolkin – third Tyler Orme, second James McKenzie and lead Chris Anderson – slipped to the C bracket following Thursday morning’s 9-4 loss to Kimberley’s Tom Buchy. “We’ve been here before so we know what to expect; we’ve just got to go out and do it,” said Perepolkin, who has made half a dozen provincials appearances. “It’s exciting every time, especially this time for me personally. It’s been four or five years since I last played. It’s kind of like starting over again. “We finished second twice in 2006 and 2007. I’ve pretty much finished all over the map except for first, so it’s time to fill in that blank.” Cotter faced New Westminster’s Jay Wakefield, and Longworth battled Victoria’s Jason Montgomery, in B division play Thursday afternoon. Perepolkin went up against New Westminster’s Ken McArdle in a C group game. The winner goes to the Tim Hortons Brier, March 2-10 at Rexall Place in Edmonton. Meanwhile, Vernon’s Sonja Gaudet and Armstrong’s Ina Forrest leave Saturday to compete in the World Wheelchair Curling

Championships in Russia. Gaudet, a two-time world and Paralympic champion, will be Canada’s lead, with Forrest at second, when the event begins next Saturday in Sochi. Jim Armstrong of Cambridge, Ont. is the skip. Gaudet had some advice for vice-skip Dennis Thiessen (Sanford, Man.) and alternate Mark Ideson (London, Ont.), who will both be making their international debuts at the Ice Cube Curling Centre. “Just go out and enjoy the experience and know that they’re travelling with a group of people who’ve been there a few times,” she said. “There’s a lot of comfort in that. Mark and Dennis are awesome teammates, awesome curlers – they are going to fit right in. They’ve just got to put that pressure right out of their mind.” Gaudet believes worlds will be a good opportunity for Canadian team to check out the facility. “That’s certainly a good thing for us (to play in Sochi); we get to check out the venue and be prepared for next year, get all our ducks in a row and know what to expect,” said Gaudet. Canada opens worlds next Saturday against South Korea’s Hak-Sung Kim. For the full schedule, visit wwhcc2013.curlingevents.com/schedule.

Snakes secure tie with Centennials Morning Star Staff

Their playoff hopes have been reduced to an improbable mathematical equation, but the Vernon Vipers are giving it an honest effort as they head down the B.C. Hockey League stretch. The Snakes skated to a 2-2 draw against the host Merritt Centennials on a rare Tuesday-nighter at Nicola Valley Arena. Head coach Jason Williamson liked the hustle he saw on the postage-stamp ice surface and felt the Vipers held more of the play, despite being outshot 37-34. Vernon netminder Austin Smith supported the cause with a 35-save, first-star performance. “Things happen in a hurry in that rink,” said Williamson, who praised his players for filling the void left by those that departed at the carding deadline. “It’s just some players we’ve given more ice time to and they’ve run with it. Before they were maybe relying on other guys and now it’s them. “We’re going to go until the end. It (playoffs)doesn’t look totally positive but our kids are still playing hard.” Even if Vernon (15-22-1-7) wins its remaining 11 games outright, the Salmon Arm SilverBacks (21-19-2-4), occupiers of the fourth and final Interior Division playoff spot, would only need to win six of their remaining 10 to clinch. The Vipers will host a pair of weekend tilts at Wesbild Centre, starting Saturday night against the West Kelowna Warriors (20-12-3-8). The first-overall Victoria Grizzlies (319-0-6) are in town for a 4 p.m. Sunday matinee. Mason Blacklock (14th goal) led the Vipers with a goal and an assist to earn second star. Brendan Persley (3rd) had the other Vernon snipe. Blacklock has 10 points (5-5-10) in eight games since joining the Viper den at the deadline. With Vernon down a goal at the intermission, he took a deft one-touch pass from Liam Board early in the second period and wheeled into Merritt’s zone to snap one by keeper Tyler Steel from the top of the circle. “Blacky’s been great,” said Williamson. “Each and every game he’s been one of our better players.” Persley deflected a Bryce Eviston point shot at 8:54 for the

Williamson said neither team was giving up much in OT. Craig Martin had one of Vernon’s better scoring chances, but rang his shot off Steel’s head and out of play. Merritt d-man Charlie Donlin earned third star. Steel, a Vernon native, made 32 stops.

“We had a strong first period. We dominated them and then we broke down in the second and third and they started scoring.” Just two minutes after Bridge connected, Springbank responded with snipes by Dylan Holloway and Jack Thompson, 67 seconds apart. Michael Hodge equalized with eight minutes gone in the second period, while Jackson Zloty put the Whalers ahead with 72 seconds left in the session. Nick Bischoff and Tychonick drew assists. “They did a lot of carry over the line and dump it in with a hard forecheck and we couldn’t get it out,” said Sedlacek. “That’s where they got all their point shots and they started to score. We had tons of VERNON

chances; we just couldn’t capitalize.” Nick Higgs was in the Mustang net for 40 minutes, giving way to Jordan Wilde for the third period. Riley Fonger went the distance for Calgary. “Moving our feet and getting pucks on net and tipping them from the point is our game, I guess,” added Tychonick, a tireless and powerful skater who runs summer triathlons (he won the Kids of Steel Kelowna race in August, 2010). Connor delivered a monster open-ice hit on Benson Young near the centre of the navy blue Winter Carnival star with 6:01 left in the second period. After the officials deliberated for a few minutes, Bilodeau, who was in the neighbourhood during the collision, was wrongly accused and ejected for a hit to

Sonics stuff Cats in North Zone battle Morning Star Staff

Matt McEachran-Law and Kuup Peters each flushed 25 points as the host Seaton Sonics upended the VSS Panthers 71-52 Tuesday night. The Sonics avenged a North Zone Senior AA Boys Basketball League opening night loss by leading from the opening tip. Seaton’s defence, buoyed by Liam MacPhee and Peters, forced several early turnovers and shut down the Panthers’ dynamo shooting guard Mitchell Pepper, limiting him to seven points overall. The Sonics were up by 10 at the break. Led by the shooting of Andy Hladik and Shelby Hartwig, the Panthers clawed to within four points late in the third, but the Sonics pushed back as McEachran-Law found his range, pouring in 13 fourth quarter points to support the outstanding twoway play of Peters and Alex Baxter. Peters finished with a dozen rebounds and seven blocks. Seaton entertained the Kalamalka Lakers Thursday in both team’s final regular-season game. North Zone playoffs for the boys and girls start Thursday and will be hosted by the first-place team in the girls’ division. VSS bowed 78-62 to the Fulton Maroons Wednesday night in the Panther Pit. Mike Rouault canned 25 points and Tye Kitzman rung up 18 for the Maroons. Pepper drained 25 points, including a first-quarter buzzer-beating trey and a gorgeous lay-up after a behind-the-back maneuver. Chris Inscho chipped in with 13 points for the Cats, who turned the ball over numerous times to Rouault in the first half. Fulton hosts the Pleasant Valley Saints

tonight at 7:45. In other league play Wednesday night, the Lakers ambushed the Pleasant Valley Saints of Armstrong 78-43. Tyson Chippendale was Kal’s top pointgetter with 12, while Ajay Jhajj registered nine points, nine rebounds and five steals. It was 49-15 Lakers at the half. Sam Fennell sank 15 points and Devon Pipke had eight for the Saints. In senior AA girls play Wednesday, Kal stuffed the Saints 70-39 in Armstrong. Kaelyn Parmalee dialed up 18 points for the Lakers, while Jordan Korol pocketed 14. Ann Stewart and Daralyn Schepp both netted 10, while Sarah Kelman added nine. Vicki Schley was Kal’s top rebounder with six. The Lakers close league play today (3:30) in Revelstoke against the Avalanche. The Panthers smothered Fulton 76-21 Wednesday night at VSS with Sage Blundell collecting 14 points and seven rebounds. Jenna Marrion counted a dozen points for the Cats, while Quinsy Leier earned 10 points and 10 rebounds. Karley Fugel contributed nine points and 13 boards, while Megan Prentice chalked up eight points and five steals.

Bolts push Dawgs for clutch 3-3 tie The DCT Chambers Coyotes and Scotiabank Lightning tied 3-3 in an intense Okanagan North Bantam Super Hockey League battle at Wesbild Centre. The first-place Coyotes (14-2-1) bit first with a first-period goal by Jakob Marshall. Brett Lambert equalized on a solo effort for the Bolts (11-3-2) after some coast-to-coast action. Landon Currie put Scotiabank up 2-1 before Graham Moss delivered five-hole for the Coyotes with 16 seconds left in the first period. The Coyotes moved ahead in the third period when Riley Bos set up Dex Elders. With defenceman Hayden Vardon battling hard along the wall to keep the puck out of the Lightning zone and into Coyote territory, the Bolts bombarded Coyote goalie Jacob Holland with shots. Sparked by hustle from Taylor Cousins and Sam Eggert, the Lightning kept the pressure on, and with goalie Noah Foufoulas on the bench for an extra attacker, Leland Riguedell buried a loose rebound to level the score with nine seconds to play. The Lightning cranked up their offence Sunday at Wesbild by blitzing the Winfield Bruins 12-3. Highlights included a sweet unassisted goal by Vardon, who took the puck end to end with some fancy stick handling, and Sam Frisby’s nice feed to Rowan Wood in front of the net for a beauty snipe. Jakob Halvorson, who has been plagued with injuries, showed excellent promise with his improved skating and near misses in front of the Bruins’ net. Forward Lexes Adams showed some feisty stickwork along the boards to keep the 3-14-1 Bruins on their toes. The Corbett Office Supply Spartans defeated Salmon Arm Fix Auto 4-3 in Bantam play at Civic Arena. Evan Winther went far side after a nice pass from Jim Brodoway to open the scoring in the first. Alex Laurila scored his second of three goals on the night with an Ovechkin-like effort. He was taken down after beating the d-man and scored on a beautiful desperation play, far side, while sliding on his stomach. Salmon Arm equalized before Laurila netted the winner on a double wraparound. Aaron Botteril and Darius Stone each had three assists, while Chris Moore made some key late saves. The Spartans moved to 4-10-1, while Fix Auto fell to 9-8.

Mitchell gets hat trick for Flames

Nick Mitchell pulled the hat trick and added one helper as the Bannister GM Flames held off Butcher Boys Titans 5-4 in Pee Wee Super League play Saturday at Wesbild Centre. Chase Batchelor added 1+2 and Sam White wired one roof daddy as the Flames improved to 10-3-3 in front of Reece Hawthorne. Dynamic shutdown d-man Alyssa Racine was the Flames’ first star. Landen Harrison, Dakota Becker, Miles Wohlford and Jacob Baycroft replied for the 7-6-2 Titans, who outskated the

Flames most of the game. D-man Sean Howard banged a shot off the crossbar behind Hawthorne on a breakaway with 10 seconds remaining.

O’Keefe fires up Devils

The Sub City Donair Devils dusted off Butcher Boys 10-3 Sunday at Wesbild with Finn O’Keefe supplying 5+2 and Brayden Beacom bagging three goals. Chapperon Chillihitzia and Seb Wenger added singles for the 12-2-1 Devils with Dalton Stenberg (shutout first half) and Jordan Foster sharing goal duties. The Devils bow 8-5 to the North Okanagan Knights Saturday morning at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Jaden Foster, Brogan Houston, Chillihitzia, O’Keefe and Beacom handled the Sub City offence. The Knights are 6-6-3. The first-place Winfield Picture Perfect Landscaping Bruins stayed unbeaten Sunday with a 5-3 win over the Vernon Stevenson Mechanical Blues at Wesbild. Trailing 2-1 midway through the second period, the 14-0-1 Bruins erupted for four unanswered goals, including three in a six-minute stretch early in the third period, to take a 5-2 lead. Zack Laranjo pulled the Blues to within a deuce midway through the final frame, burying a Reid Lawrence rebound. Dylan Blazek made 31 saves. Brendan Moore led the winners with three goals. Lawrence and Cody Webb, also scored for the 10-3-3 Blues, who had a six-game league unbeaten streak snapped. On Saturday at the Pat Duke Memorial Arena, Braydie Allen-Webber’s goal at 17:49 of the first period proved to be the winner as the Blues downed the Lumby Stars 3-1. Allen-Webber picked up a loose puck in a scramble in front of Stars goalie Cameron Pryor and roofed a wrist shot under the crossbar. Kael Black gave Vernon a 1-0 lead early in the first period before Josh Litven replied six minutes later for the Stars. Webb got the insurance marker with a rocket wrister over Pryor’s right shoulder with seven minutes left in the third period. Sam Knox earned the win with 18 saves. Pryor was especially solid for the Stars, making 33 saves.

Sean Conners scored three times as the Talon Benefits Hawks bounced Lumby 5-2 in Midget league play Saturday at Priest Valley Arena.

In Atom play, the Winfield Bruins rolled into Civic Arena on Sunday to meet the Vernon Mighty Ducks and ran into a flock of trouble, falling 8-2.

Sovereign skiers medal Morning Star Staff

Sovereign Lake Nordic Club members came away with a pair of gold medals from the Teck B.C. Cup Championships last weekend in Prince George. Ian Oliphant, competing in the Bantam 2 Boys Division, and Mae Hooper, racing in the Women’s 50-59 class, won their events at the Otway Ski Trails. More than 300 nordic racers participated in the event that featured grueling hill climbs and heartstopping descents. Hannah Mehain clinched fourth place and teammate Michelle Metza ranked ninth in the Juvenile 1 Girls category. Emma Smedley took fifth in the Midget 2 Girls, and in the Midget 1 Girls, Paige Latta and Sydney Embleton finished sixth and eighth respectively. In the Midget 1 Boys, Jarrod Latta and Finn Plummer claimed sixth and seventh respectively, and Eric Embleton put in a solid performance in the competitive Juvenile 1 Boys category, skiing to seventh. In Sunday’s three-person freestyle event, the Sovereign’s Team Dynomite (Sydney Embleton, Madison Catt and Paige Latta) snapped up the bronze medal in the Midget Girls division. Team Smetzain (Mehain, Metza and Smedley), and My Favorite Team (Oliphant, Plummer and Jarrod Latta) both skied to fifth-place finishes in their categories.

Bar association wants more judges and staff tom fletcher Black Press

is an average of seven appearances by the accused in a criminal

case before it goes to trial. Asked about those

problems, Simmons said there are pilot projects underway to

expand the use of video conferencing in courts. Judges from out of town

can preside over simpler procedures, such as bail or remand hearings.

WEEK: B302 NAME: PRE-VALENTINES DAY WEEKEND INSERT DATE: FEB.08 AD# 39656 SIZE: GRID B (11 x 15) MARKETS: Bc - VM

The B.C. branch of the Canadian Bar Association has released a report calling for more judges, more court services staff, more legal aid money and more mental health services. Kerry Simmons, president of the B.C. branch, said the association wants to put justice issues on the agenda for the May provincial election, and it has been received with interest by the B.C. Liberal Party and NDP. The bar association, representing 6,900 B.C. judges, lawyers and law students, is seeking a long wish list of reforms, including long-standing demands for legal aid funding for family court disputes and a return to the 2005 level of staffing for provincial court judges. The B.C. government announced the hiring of nine new judges a year ago, and Attorney General Shirley Bond also launched a review of the court system. Geoffrey Cowper, former chair of B.C.’s Legal Services Society, was assigned to examine why the court system was getting slower despite 13,000 fewer new provincial criminal cases than it handled in 2002. Cowper concluded the problem is partly because there are incentives for defence lawyers to delay cases, and a “culture of delay” that resists change. “During the review there was a general sense that judges and lawyers have their own, insulated sense of what constitutes timeliness

and responsiveness,” Cowper wrote. He also found there

From your home to your prized possessions inside it, BCAA Home Insurance can help you protect it. As your local insurance experts, we take the time to get to know you better so you can get the coverage that’s right for you. And now, until April 30, 2013 get $10 in free gas* with a new BCAA Home Insurance quote.

A new poll has found 61 per cent of B.C. residents oppose Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline, while support is at 35 per cent. And the Insights West online survey found opponents of the project are more entrenched – 38 per cent are strongly opposed, compared to just 11 per cent who strongly support the new route for crude oil across northwestern B.C. to Kitimat. “The negative side has continued to build momentum,” said Insights West president Steve Mossop, citing a hardening of opinions against Enbridge in a

series of polls since last spring. “Opinions are becoming much stronger,” he said, likening the Enbridge issue to the crystallization of public opinion against logging in Clayoquot Sound in the 1990s. “It’s a bit of a snowball effect,” Mossop said. “And it becomes very difficult to change a very entrenched position like that.”

It’s a different story in Alberta, where the survey, which polled 512 B.C. residents and 562 Albertans, found 75 per cent support for the project. Respondents in both provinces agreed by large margins that the pipeline will create new jobs, support economic growth and create new capital investment. But environmental concerns – the risk of ocean spills as well as pipeline construction impacts on land – trumped the economic benefits for most B.C. residents. “Even the negative side recognizes the benefits,” Mossop said. “They’re just not being persuaded that the down sides are worth the risks.” Men in both provinces were more likely than women to support building the pipeline. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.1 per cent 19 times out of 20.

Event builds on robotics interest Morning Star Staff

When the Vex Robotics Competition gets underway at Okanagan College’s Kelowna campus Saturday, it will be the first time the Pacific Youth Robotics Society will have held a tournament for high school level robotics enthusiasts in the Interior. Okanagan College is hosting the event as part of its efforts to encourage high school students and their parents to consider education and careers in science, technology, engineering and math. About 80 high school age students and their robots will be competing on a 12-foot-by-12-foot field in a game called Sack Attack. It involves independent and manipulated robot activity where teams score points by putting beanbags into elevated troughs. While the focus is on having students address the technological challenge using mechanical, electronic and programming skills (and have fun), it’s much more than that, says Lance Balcom, PYRS president. “It’s a challenge that forces them to work together as a team, to articulate complicated ideas and hear those of others, and build a superior technical solution together,” he said. “If we can get kids learning those skills at this age, we’re preparing them to compete in the 21st century.” There is no admission charge and parking is free on the weekend at the college. Competition hits full stride at about 10 a.m. and the elimination finals will start at about 2 p.m. To find out more, you can visit the event website at www.robotevents.com/bc-interior-inauguraltournament.html.

Meters spark customer consult jeff nagel Black Press

Energy Minister Rich Coleman says smart meters won’t be forced into homes over the next few months but he denied reports the province has reversed its policy and will let objectors opt out of having the wireless devices. “We’re going back to talk to our customers. We’ll not force any customer to take a meter,” he said. Coleman said he believes most smart meter opponents will ultimately agree to take them after they talk to BC Hydro reps. But exactly what will happen to holdouts who resist to the end is unclear. Coleman said the next steps would be decided after “some re-education” and an effort to work with objectors in a “respectful” way. “We’ll see how many at the end of maybe two or three months we have left and then we’ll have a conversation about where we go from here,” he said. Asked whether the meters will ultimately be mandatory, Coleman said: “I’m not going to make that decision until I see the results of the next couple of months. “Out of respect for our customers, we go through that first without coming with whatever program would come later.” BC Hydro officials have stated they will take more time to work through customer concerns and won’t install meters without permission in households who oppose them. Coleman had also indicated that in an earlier op-ed piece. NDP energy critic John Horgan accused the Liberals of making a muddled attempt to neutralize the contentious issue ahead of the provincial election. “They want to reduce the amount of frustration they find in communities right across B.C.,” Horgan said. He said the attempt to punt the issue to after the May 14 vote has only confused the public, adding MLA offices have been “swamped by concerned citizens who want answers.” For months, wireless meter opponents have posted notices and in some cases built cages or other structures around their old analog meters to keep Hydro contractors from converting them. But those who didn’t take such steps and now have a smart meter won’t be allowed to switch back – no matter how the province ultimately handles the final holdouts.

“We can’t remove a smart meter once it has been installed because they are now standard operating equipment like utility poles and power lines,” BC Hydro spokesman Greg Alexis said in an e-mailed statement. “Also, the old meters are being recycled and are no longer available.” Hydro officials have so far refused to disclose what proportion of smart meters are required in a given area for the new smart grid to function effectively. More than 1.74 million smart meters have so far been installed province-wide, pointing to a penetration rate of at least 93 per cent, with a combination of holdouts and accepting customers still to go. Horgan said an NDP government would ask the B.C. Utilities Commission to advise on how best to deal with households who refuse the new meters. “What we need now is not government or a political party telling the public why this is a good or bad idea, but an independent third party.”

Maestro to highlight his love for piano Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

Many know him for the wave of his baton and the passion he infuses when conducting great orchestras around the world, most notably the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO). But before standing at the podium, or taking a pen to write his own compositions, Bramwell Tovey was sitting at the piano in his native England and listening to the music that surrounded him. It was through his family’s service in the Salvation Army that Tovey first became attuned to music and performing, establishing the base in what has become an accomplished career — one that has taken him to international stages, and which will bring him to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday in a special concert presented by the North Okanagan Community Concert Association. Tovey’s family involvement in the Sally Ann goes back not long after the Protestant denomination of the Christian church was founded by William Booth. His grandfather worked with Bramwell Booth, son of the founder, who was the first chief of staff and second general of the Salvation Army in the early-1900s. “I was seven years old when I first sat down to the piano and I learned by ear when I was young,” said Tovey. “The preacher would sing in any, old key and I would play along... It was a tremendous education.” Growing up, Tovey also sang in the Salvation Army choir and played in the bands, travelling around Great Britain, and eventually began studies at the Royal Academy of Music and the University of London. Although the piano was always close to his fingertips, the baton and pen soon made their way into his music education. One of his first major jobs was that as the principle conductor for the Royal Ballet’s orchestra in the 1980s. “I toured twice as a conductor (with the Royal Ballet) to Canada. We went from Toronto to Vancouver. It was a fantastic tour and I fell in love with Canada. I made a note to come back as much as possible.”

Photo submitted

Acclaimed conductor, composer and pianist Bramwell Tovey is in Vernon Tuesday to give an intimate concert on behalf of the North Okanagan Community Concert Association. That wish became a permanent reality when Tovey moved to Canada to take over as music director/conductor of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in 1989, serving for 12 years. His assistant during part of that time was none other than Rosemary Thomson, now conductor with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra. “She is an incredible woman and has gone on to do incredible things. I am so proud of her,” said Tovey. Now in his 13th year leading the VSO, Tovey has seen orchestras in this country manage to survive through funding shortages, and the veil of an aging audience. “I think the classical music scene is very healthy. It’s not my experience that it is dying,” said Tovey. “We played to 7,000 people in three days with two different programs that was well attended... It’s a lively art form that requires care and investment.”

And Tovey is at the forefront of that movement to keep orchestras alive and playing. Besides his duties with the VSO, he continues his association with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, and as founding host and conductor of the New York Philharmonic’s Summertime Classics series at Avery Fisher Hall. And that’s not including his work as a guest conductor with leading orchestras in the U.S., Europe and Canada. “My responsibility is always with the VSO. My kids live here in Vancouver. I conduct the VSO for half a season, along with my ongoing relationship with the New York Philharmonic every summer as well as the Hollywood Bowl every year,” said Tovey. “I am very blessed. It’s a wonderful way to earn a living.” As a composer, Tovey’s credits are also numerous and have earned him a Juno

award for best classical composition as well as a Genie for best achievement in music for the original song In a Heartbeat, recorded with the VSO and Vancouver’s Chor Leoni. In 2008, Tovey, along with violinist James Ehnes and the VSO, picked up a Grammy Award in the best soloist with orchestra category for their recording of three violin concertos by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Samuel Barber and William Walton. But despite the accolades, it’s always back at the piano where Tovey finds himself. “Whilst I travel most as a conductor, the piano is a big part of what I do. I love doing shows such as the one I will be doing in Vernon,” he said. “It’ll be a blend of classical and jazz, and I will introduce each piece with the relevance it has had on my life and career.” On the program will be Tovey’s obvious passion for pop songs from the ‘30s and ‘40s, including some Porter and Gershwin, as well as some classical, Beethoven and Schubert, and perhaps one or two of his own compositions. Tovey also sees these concerts as a less formal way to interact with his audiences, and he often does a Q&A session as part of his appearances. The result, he says, allows him to be more spontaneous with the audience and allows him to reconnect. “I did one show in Burnaby and at the end a woman came up and introduced me to a distinguished gentleman in a wheelchair. It ended up being Oscar Peterson’s brother,” he said. “I love doing concerts like this... Let’s face it, classical music can be serious, but it can also be more fun than people think. It’s like a Shakespeare play... If you can make them laugh one minute and cry the next, then you know you’re reaching them.” Tuesday’s An Evening with Bramwell Tovey at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre starts at 7:30 p.m. As the concert is not part of the regular NOCCA season, it requires a special ticket and new seat selection. Cost for NOCCA members is $30. Other tickets are $40 for adults, $20 for those under 18 and $5 for students on eyeGo at the Ticket Seller, 250-549-7469.

Off the slopes and into the Wood Morning Star Staff

Victoria alt.-rockers the  Michael Wood Band are making their way up Silver Star Mountain this weekend as part of the band’s cross-country tour. The band, led by Michael Wood, has already played Kamloops’ Sun Peaks Resort as well as shows in Kelowna and Salmon Arm, where Wood has a local connection as his family   is  the pioneering Ritchie family of Salmon Arm, and his grandmother, aunts and many cousins still live there. An active humanitarian as well as musician, Wood and the band, including Jon Baergen (bass/ vocals), Josh Weed (guitar/vocals), and Alex Campbell (drums/vocals) have a sound described as “The Killers meets Kings of Leon with an infectious groove,” reflecting multiple influences ranging from jazz to pop to classic rock. Their debut album, Occupy This, recorded at the Barn Recording Studio (where Randy Bachman and Buffy Sainte-Marie have both recorded) was released in May, and was written while the band’s members were still in high school. The songs reflect diverse topics such as the Arab Spring (Should We Be Afraid) to over commercialism (End of the World) to finding your own path (I Think

It’s been really encouraging.” More than 66,000 fans have also viewed the band’s YouTube channel, and in particular, the video for End of the World, and I Think I’ll Just Go To Bed won them the new artist of the month on Ontario’s CKXS 99.1 FM.

Extensive performing has also ensued, with the band playing everything from small charity shows to large festivals, including a performance at   the Calgary Stampede. More recently, they were selected as finalists in the  Amp Records and Fox FM Band Fight held this fall in Vancouver. The Michael Wood Band takes the stage at the Saloon in the Vance Creek Hotel at Silver Star Mountain Resort, Saturday at 9 p.m. Seating is limited, so best to arrive early. Cover is $2.

Still the master 30 years later Stevie ray Vaughan and double trouble: Texas Flood (Legacy Edition)

W

hen one thinks of the year 1983 (if at all), blues rock guitar heroes aren’t usually on the mental horizon. But in those days of synthesizer-obsessed new wavers, glam metal hair bands and robotic fashionistas, one such figure blasted his way through. That was Stevie Ray Vaughan, a disciple of Albert King, Lonnie Mack and Jimi Hendrix, and his timing was perfect.

Thirty years is a long time that’s passed quickly, but Vaughan and his band Double Trouble ushered in a fresh take on an old sound back into a weirded and wimped-out rock music scene. SRV’s sound and stance were a bold kick in the pants, and this re-release of their first album, Texas Flood, is an obvious testament to the potency and depth of Vaughan’s musicality and the empathy of Double Trouble cohorts Tommy Shannon (bass) and Chris Layton (drums). The clincher was the in-your-face Stratocaster manDean Gordon-Smith gling, both fierce (Testify) and beautiful (Lenny). Vaughan was a master of control and fluidity, but also adept at creating atmosphere. Tin Pan Alley and the title track are bluesy sound paintings of a forlorn sort, lyrical and reflective. Such expressive playing remains a rarity. The real surprise and bonus of this Texas Flood edition is the second disc; SRV and Double trouble recorded live in Philadelphia in October ’83. Texas Flood is a blues rock breath of fresh air, but this live set is a blast in the face. It highlights the band’s top song choices off the new album with a whole lot of edge and attitude. Basically it shows how good they were, and that they sounded better live (a rare quality for many artists). It’s exciting and unleashed and reveals Vaughan to be a rhythmic powerhouse, as well highlighting the inventive and unpredictable nature of his playing. As another Texan, Charlie Sexton, sagely observed, “Stevie was funky”. He’s got soul, and he’s super bad. When he steps up on the third song of the set to deliver his version of Hendrix’ Voodoo Child (Slight Return) and torches the song with scary zoned-out precision, you hear a master.

Lost in a cave

I

t was a tough night for a group of cave dwellers at the Vernon Winter Carnival Dinner Theatre on Wednesday night at the Village Green Hotel. Besides having to club and skin a meatless chicken for their supper and wear barelythere animal print “togas,” they had to deal with the loss of a voice when one of their Kristin Froneman clan, Keiryn Young, came down with that nasty cold that’s going around. Not the best way to celebrate the opening night for this year’s Carnival play, Post Prehistoric Cave Dudes, but one that proved that these dudes, and in this case, dudette, are a tough breed. Young ended up enacting her role in the physical, while a voice off stage read her lines. It was just the start of what was an out-of-the-ordinary experience. The show could best be described as Lost meets Lost in Space, but in this case it’s caves, as the Dude from the title (director/actor Phillip Wagner) and his son, Leroy (Daniel Mellows) are needing a woman’s touch to keep their cavernous abode from falling apart. Enter Lilly (Regina Picco), not exactly the woman they had in mind, who wanders in one day after she hears strange clicking noises emitting from the men’s cave. She also has a club and is looking for a kill — of the animal kind. It later turns out she has escaped from the other side of the

river where the “Others” live, and Dude goes off to investigate. If this sounds like a certain TV show that starred a bunch of plane wreck survivors who had to fight off a group called the Others, and ended as strangely as it begun, then keep reading: It gets more surreal. When fellow cave dwellers Loretta (Elcita Young) and her sister Lolita (Young’s daughter in real life, Keiryn) also enter Dude and Leroy’s cave, they discover the numbers 108 (another homage to Lost, however those numbers were more lottery like), and the strange music they evoke. The music isn’t actually that strange, but a collection of modern pop and funk hits that the cave people can’t help but dance to with all extremities convulsing and shaking like it’s the end of time. The dance numbers also lead themselves into musical numbers, and one in particular performed by Elcita Young, Don’t Rain on My Parade from Funny Girl, is

impressive. This fancy dress loving troglodyte has a fantastic voice, it turns out. Leroy does end up finding love in Clara (Mikaela Kemper), another modern-dressed escapee from the Others, and the two share a lovely duo. But in all honesty, by then I had been so confused by the actual dance numbers to follow what was exactly going on in the plot. However, I must commend the valiant effort by the cast, who through loss of voices, skimpy clothing, “dino”mite dance moves and even a trombone solo, made the most of Carnival’s prehistoric theme. And now I must get out my DVDs of Lost. Post Prehistoric Cave Dudes continues at the Village Green Hotel’s Sierra Room as part of Winter Carnival, tonight and Saturday. Dinner theatre and some theatre-only tickets are still available at the Carnival office. Call 250-545-2236 or visit vernonwintercarnival.com.

Mama doesn’t make it all better Mama

R

aised by a mysterious apparition for five years after being abandoned in the woods, Lilly, now six, and Victoria, eight, are returned to their extended family for care and upbringing. The problem is, sweet as they look, the girls have some seriously creepy issues and they brought someone home with them, Mama. We say, “Mama doesn’t always make sense, but you had better listen to her.” TAYLOR: Me likey! Mama Taylor & Howe isn’t perfect. In fact, if you really think about the overall arching of the story, Mama exhibits some faulty logic. Unfortunately, I can’t go into any detail without ruining what shred of mystery the film has. Fortunately, the film makes up for its shortcomings by being beautiful and effectively scary. HOWE: I didn’t really care about the flaws in Mama. It was the best fright movie I have seen in the last couple of years. The two little girls (Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nelisse) are great as the creepy forest children brought back to the civilized world. I loved how director Andres Muschietti made them move, some of it looked unnatural and that gave them a sinister, scary feel. TAYLOR: The success of the scares in this (or any other horror film) are the results of a simple equation: caring what happens to the characters plus having them threatened, preferably creepily plus perfect editing. You need the right amount of give and take. Mama is a film that has that. When Jessica Chastain is wandering around looking for the bump

I’ve heard some people complaining about Mama’s looks, but I couldn’t get enough of her. This film got my heart racing, more than once. HOWE: Its nice that Mama had a backbone to the story, not just some haunting of a house. You can’t beat a good ghost story with a mystery to unravel to find out who Mama is or who she was. My only question is where was Scooby when you need him? TAYLOR: I thought of Scooby Doo as well, if only because Chastain drove a Volkswagon van. Mama was executive produced by Guillermo del Toro, which could mean he actually had very little to do with the

movie, but his name being attached to it so prominently is warranted. The film has that elegant, oil painting look of del Toro’s other films, like Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy. Putting the del Toro name on the film has helped introduce us all to director Andres Muschietti. He produced a $40,000, three minute short featuring Mama chasing the girls around in a spooky house. It was the strength of that short that led to the feature being made. I look forward to seeing more from Muschietti. — Taylor gives Mama 3.5 pounds of moths out of 5. — Howe gives it 3.5 cherry pips out of 5.

John Toporchak, Schubert Centre Society president (back), watches as Okanagan-Monashee MLA Eric Foster (left) and Vernon city councillor Patrick Nicol try their hand at the new indoor floor curling at the centre.

Curling is in the house Thanks to a grant from Funtastic, indoor curling leagues are a go for Schubert Centre

cara brady Morning Star Staff

Someone wondered if that was real ice in the middle of the Schubert Centre meeting room and why the curling rocks seemed to be made of wood. No, it isn’t ice, just a special coating on the floor and the rocks for indoor curling are made of wood. The game is played by pushing the rocks with sticks so there is no bending, no sweeping, the ice is shorter and it’s all done in comfort indoors so people who love curling can continue to use their

skills for as long as they want. The game, which is gaining in popularity, is also suitable for people who have never curled before. The surface was prepared and equipment purchased thanks to a $2,400 grant from Funtastic Society to Schubert Centre. “People are really interested and the members are excited to get going. Leagues are forming now,” said Schubert Centre manager Jack Gareb. The Funtastic Grant was presented by society president Brett Kirkpatrick at the Centre’s January birthday lunch. “It’s a pleasure to come out and see what our work is doing in the community. We hope you have fun with the curling equipment,” he said. Funtastic is a volunteer-run organization that puts on the summer tournament which brings in about $4 million to the community each year. The event is also a fundraiser which has allowed the society

to give back $1.4 million to the community over the past 29 years. MLA Eric Foster added his good wishes on the donation and new program. “The Funtastic volunteers work year round to be able to give to different projects in the community. And the Schubert Centre continues to give great service to the community through its volunteers,” he said. Coun. Patrick Nicol, representing the City of Vernon, added, “Congratulations to all the volunteers and everyone who helped make this new recreation opportunity available.” Even some of the members who do not curl are curious about indoor curling. “I think I might give it a try,” said Rose Vair, who represented the Schubert Centre in cutting the ribbon to open the new area.

Drugs harm brother’s promising future

ear Annie: I’m a mother in my mid-20s and a very concerned sister. My brother, “Dennis,” is four years younger and the first to graduate high school. He went to college and had everything going for him. Now he is throwing it all away. Dennis turned to drugs and has missed important moments in our lives, such as weddings and holidays. He only shows up at my mother’s or grandmother’s house to take a shower, and then he goes out again. My family and I are trying so hard to point him back in the right direction. Kathy mitchell & marcy sugar Two months ago, I had to have Dennis arrested for assaulting me. We are all worried that something terrible is going to happen. There are times when he is completely out of it and doesn’t know what’s going on. What do we do? — Worried Family in Illinois Dear Worried: It is a nightmare when a family member is on drugs, because there is little you can do. Your brother must want to stop and be willing to get appropriate treatment. He’s not there yet. It is important that your family members pro-

Who would presume to tell a grown woman that her accent is offensive? I could understand if it were a grammar issue or if her language were laced with profanities, but her speech pattern is who she is. And she will not “lose” it if she moves north. It may soften slightly, but it will never go away completely. Clearly, this guy has other issues. If he truly cared for her, this accent would not bother him. In fact, most folks find a Southern accent delightful. It is soothing, relaxing and way sexy. I surely hope this lady discovers who this jerk really is before she changes her life for him. — A Yankee in North Carolina Dear Yankee: We agree that if he cannot tolerate her accent, he should not stay in the relationship. But it is not uncommon for people to find one particular trait annoying, no matter how much they otherwise care for a person. And it’s a highly individual degree of preference and tolerance. You love your boyfriend, but think the way he gestures with his hands is appalling. You adore your girlfriend, but she speaks too softly for your taste. These are neither negative nor positive traits to others. This particular guy finds this particular drawl to be grating. He needs to figure out how important it is to him in the grand scheme of his relationship.

his destiny. The prevailing Qi — the energies that enter a person’s life at the exact moment of birth — influences his character, abilities, and potentials in life, luck, relationships, fortunes and misfortunes and are all determined by the type of Qi the spirit/ soul is exposed to at the moment of birth. Four Pillars of Destiny is to study the spirit of a person, and to chart his Path of Life. The Path of Life is not a straight line, but a wide wave band of variable widths with ups and downs.

ment to thrive in. If he is going through a bad luck period, good Feng Shui will ensure his ability to tap into the most auspicious energies — good Wealth Qi to maximize on his earning capacity, and good Health Qi to provide him with a good character, good health and support from his family and friends in all his endeavors. If the person is going through a good luck period, good Feng Shui will help him to accumulate wealth and assets, and build up a good support network, so he is well prepared for any future bad luck periods. But bad Feng Shui in both instances will be detrimental in terms of the outcome in the different luck periods. Your Destiny and You is a four-part workshop taking a look at how your destiny and fate impact you in

tect themselves while being open to any genuine efforts your brother makes to get clean. If he is in college, notify the counselors there, and contact Nar-Anon (nar-anon.org) for support. Dear Annie: My nephew is getting married soon. The wedding will take place in Canada. My husband and I do not own passports, nor would we ever buy them, because they are expensive and we would never use them again. We have traveled to other family weddings within the United States, but we don’t feel we should be pressured to attend a wedding out of the country. We can’t afford it. Do you think we are required to be there? — Soon To Be Family Outcast Dear Soon: No. You are not obligated to attend any wedding, and certainly not one that is beyond your financial means. While we believe family members should make an effort to attend one another’s special events, it should not require overextending yourselves. Send your regrets and a nice gift to make up for your absence. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Need Your Input,” the idiot who was critical of his girlfriend’s Southern drawl. He shouldn’t wait until she moves north. She deserves to know now that he is a passive-aggressive loser.

Unplug and Play Challenge! February 11- Family Day Make it a Screen Free Day! Watch for info on activities Bridge by Phillip Alder Moderately ConfusedScreen-Free week Apr 29-May 4 KEEP HUNTING FOR Since THOSE TRICKS Tom Flynn, an author, journalist and novelist, said, “Be sure you positively identify your target before you pull the trigger.” As I mentioned yesterday, defenders should identify their target, the tricks that they need to defeat the contract. Then they should pull the trigger -- play the necessary cards. In this deal, how should West have defended against three spades? He led the heart ace: three, nine, five. He continued with the heart king: six, four, seven. What should he have shot next? South’s jump to three spades was gameinvitational, guaranteeing at least a six-card suit.

East had played high-low in hearts, West knew that South had begun with three hearts. So West could see four tricks: one spade and three hearts. But where was the fifth winner? If West shifted to his club, took the next trick with the spade ace, and gave his partner a heart ruff, perhaps he could receive a club ruff in return. However, from the bidding East could not have two spades. Instead, West had to gain a trick with the diamond king. But if South had the diamond ace and queen, East had to lead the suit. How could West get East on lead? Right -- he led his heart jack (not the two, which East might have read as a suit-preference signal for

clubs, indicating that West was void in that suit). East, thinking that South still had the heart queen, ruffed. And when South played a low heart, East correctly understood his partner’s play. East shifted to the diamond jack -- down one.

Aaron John Drexler

With much sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Aaron John Drexler on Feb. 3, 2013 in the Vernon Hospital after a brief and sudden illness. Aaron was born to Joseph and Pauline Feb. 23, 1938 in Carbon, Alta. He later resided in Banff from 1952 - 1972, that’s when he and Anne decided to move to Vernon with their two children, where Aaron worked as a highly and well thought of painter for many years. Aaron will be remembered most for his kind and giving nature. He was always willing to lend a hand to anyone and would give them the shirt off his back if they needed it. His door was always open to those who knew him, no matter what time of day. His warm and caring nature attracted many friends along his way through life. He had a great sense of humor and his distinct laugh and infectious smile will be missed by us all. He enMoyed many years camping and ¿shing in the area with his family and friends, but his most favorite spot was Echo Lake in Lumby where the Drexler, Smoliak and Walker Clan laughter could be heard throughout the lake spot nearly every weekend and holiday.

Coming Events

1929 ~ 2013

Mary Ann McKenzie (nee Lohman) passed away peacefully at Central Okanagan Hospice House in Kelowna on February 5, 2013 after a short, valiant fight with cancer. 

ABORIGINAL YOUTH!!

SPORT & ACTIVE LIVING LEADERSHIP (SALL)

She is survived by her adoring husband of 25 years, Tom McKenzie, her three daughters: Margaret (Jack) Surinak of Fort St. John, Christine (Gary Grout) Dixon of Nakusp and Linda (Danny McGrath) Dixon of Nakusp and stepson Ian McKenzie of Vernon, B.C. and 7 grandchildren: Stacey (Rob) Derouin, Lee Surinak, Claire Paradis, Amos Evans, Kate (Warren) Lario, Chris (Sarah) Surinak, Geoff (Karalyn) Grout and 4 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her older sisters, Irene McLean of Fort St. John and Sylvia Cranston of Nanaimo, B.C. and brother-in-law Ron (Fern) McKenzie of Kelowna. She was predeceased by an older sister Lucy Scheck and older brother Lawrence Lohman, step son Brian McKenzie. Mary Ann was born in Effingham, Illinois on May 10, 1929. She moved to Fort St. John, B.C. as a baby, where she was raised by her grandparents, Annie and Ted Schauwecker. She helped with her grandmother’s laundry business and her grandfather’s pool hall business. She was a member of the Alcan Follies and worked at the Hudson Bay Company post. In the Peace River country the Lohman girls, comprised of Mary Ann and her sisters were much in demand for their beautifully harmonized singing voices and musicality. She moved, with her grandparents, to Armstrong, B.C. where she married Earl Dixon and raised their three daughters.  The best and happiest years of her life were spent with her husband, Tom, with whom she enjoyed dancing, travelling, spending time with family and friends, and working in their yard.  Mary Ann will always be remembered for her wonderful adventurous cooking and delicious baking; her wicked sense of humor and her love of practical jokes. Her daughters have special memories of the beautifully decorated cakes she made with love for their birthdays.  There will be no service, by request. Interment will be in the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Cemetery in the spring.  Condolences may be sent to the family through the guest book at www. valleyviewfuneralhome.com. Arrangements entrusted to Valleyview Funeral Home, Kelowna, BC 250-765-3147.
