Games garner legacy funds Hosting athletes from across the province will have a lasting impact on the North Okanagan. Organizers of the 2012 Greater Vernon B.C. Winter Games will announce Friday the recipients of $117,000 in legacy funds. “We are looking at sports, cultural and community organizations and their needs,” said Akbal Akbal Mund Mund, who chaired the Games committee. “Ninety-five per cent of the people who asked for something will be receiving something. Some money
will go to the sports involved in the Games.” While not getting into specifics, Mund says the goal of the legacy funds is to provide Greater Vernon with the ability to draw major events well into the future. “We’re talking about what can we do 25 to 30 years ahead.” The legacy funds were generated by souvenir sales leading up to the 2012 Games and the organizing committee keeping a firm grip on its budget. One aspect that helped the committee keep expenses down, was local businesses providing in-kind services valued at $350,000. “It was a collaboration of the community,” said Mund. The recipients of the legacy funds will be revealed at a ceremony at the VantageOne Centre Friday at 7 p.m.

Cougars kill Grindrod dogs richard rolke Morning Star Staff
Cougars are being blamed for the deaths of three dogs in Grindrod. The Ministry of Environment started receiving reports of cougar attacks in the Grandview Bench area in mid-January. “It’s normal cougar behaviour,” said officer Brent Smith. “They see dogs as prey.” Two dogs have been killed by cougars while a third dog had to be
euthanized by a veterinarian because of extensive wounds. Four other dogs were also injured. “There was a human injury when a person separated a dog and a cougar. It was a minor injury,” said Smith. On Feb.10, a 100-pound male cougar was tracked and destroyed while a second 100-pound male cat was killed Feb. 11. “To date, there have been no further reports regarding cougars,” said Smith.

Decision falls flat
nderby politicians have saved $601 but that could have far-reaching implications for residents and the economy. On Monday, council decided not to participate in the valley-wide effort to control starlings, a non-indigenous bird species. “Council believes it’s not a major problem in our area,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. “We don’t have grapes and council thought the money could be better used elsewhere,” added Coun. Brad Case. Perhaps council members thought that only grapes are ravaged by starlings because the control program is administered by the B.C. Grape Growers Association. However, that is far from the case. “At livestock operations, starlings consume feed and contaminate the feed and water with their droppings,” states the B.C. Grape Growers Richard Rolke Association’s website. “They are particularly attracted to these locations in the winter when the weather is cold and food is scarce. Starlings may also transfer disease among livestock facilities.” The website also goes on to say that during the winter, flocks of up to 2,000 birds can consume one to two tonnes of feed in a month and can contaminate or spoil an additional 500 to 1,000 kilograms of feed. “They also selectively eat the high-protein portion of protein-supplemented livestock feed.” While there are no farms in Enderby itself, the surrounding rural area — Grindrod, Ashton Creek and Mara — is home to some significant cattle operations. It’s likely farmers have had clouds of starlings swarm on to their properties and consume everything in sight.

Corn and other field crops can be attacked and Enderby council may have forgot that just a short trip up Highway 97B is Larch Hills Winery. So there is grape production within close vicinity. Voracious starlings translate into economic losses for farmers — about $4 million a year in the Okanagan. That means fewer dollars to spend at Enderby’s grocery stores, restaurants and boutiques. The other factor to consider is that starlings are an urban pest. “Large flocks are unsightly, noisy and contaminate the area with droppings,” states the grape growers website. According to Wikipedia, a survey of 300 starlings in six U.S. states found they all had at least one type of parasite — fleas, mites, ticks or worms. That’s not something you want your cat bringing into the house. They will nest on building ledges and in warehouses, open rafters, dryer vents and particularly birdhouses, which are numerous along the scenic river walk in Enderby. “Starlings are aggressive and opportunistic. They will take any suitable site for nesting and evict any previous owner, driving native birds from their territory,” states the grape growers. In a dramatic departure from Enderby, Lumby has no problem forking out $432 for starling control. “It supports the regional district’s priority of agriculture and we support that,” said Nick Hodge, a village councillor. The Regional District of North Okanagan recently formed an advisory committee to focus on the economic and social benefits of agriculture. One of the members is Enderby’s Howie Cyr. In the end, $601 isn’t going to make or break starling control but the lack of support should raise concerns that Enderby politicians don’t fully understand what is occurring in their community.
The throne speech opening B.C.’s 39th Legislature may have been short on substance, but it did make it abundantly clear that the B.C. Liberals see natural gas exports as the source of the province’s future prosperity. The B.C. Conservative Party was quick off the mark to label this a “We’re gonna win a lottery” throne speech, while NDP leader Adrian Dix said it’s a sign that the Liberals have given up on other sectors of the economy, like forestry, film, high tech and tourism. Rather than convince the province with reasoned arguments that LNG exports would be safe and profitable despite the vagaries of the volatile fuel market, the throne speech instead held out tantalizing, but unsubstantiated hints about what could be done with all that money. Reducing the provincial debt topped the list, along with improvements to social services, investment in education and infrastructure, and the biggest carrot, the elimination of provincial sales tax. The ideas outlined in the throne speech, of course, only apply if the Liberals are re-elected. An NDP government could overturn the whole concept of B.C. becoming a leading exporter of LNG to the energy hungry Asian markets. But should they? There is substance to the concept of exploiting one of the province’s biggest assets. If not now, when? While, as the NDP suggest, supporting existing economic drivers is a primary goal, expanding the province’s economic base should also be on the agenda. What we need is an intelligent approach to bringing B.C. LNG to the world market. As with the province’s five requirements for the Enbridge pipeline, we need a plan to ensure safe production and transport as well as a sound fiscal plan to ensure the province profits, both in terms of taxes and maximizing jobs created in the province. — Penticton Western News

Kind act leaves an impression
ust when you think you are losing faith in humanity, along comes someone who, through one simple act, reaffirms it. I met someone like that the other day. Mike is a bus driver. Someone you say hi to but maybe never get to know. Well, I got to know him the other day. We were on the bus from Vernon to Enderby, just getting ready to leave downtown, when this couple with two small children got on the bus, complete with two strollers and related gear. They told Mike they were going to Salmon Arm. It was then that Mike delivered the bad news that there was no bus to pArking meters I read with alarm the item relating to the cost increase of meter parking in downtown Vernon from 50 cents to $1 per hour. This increase is very extreme. I was employed by the city's engineering department from 1960 to the mid-1980s. My job, under engineer David MacKay, dealt primarily with roadways, traffic flow and parking. We had to be aware of the various trends within these functions. I believe it took about 20 years to increase the rate from five to 10 cents, with modest increases along the way. I'm sure this increase will have a very negative impact on downtown business and is a slap in the face of the section of Vernon which has been the major source of tax revenue for many years. The decision of the increase is supported by, and possibly initiated by a mayor who often seems insensitive to the legitimate concerns of many of his citizens, ie. the Landing firefighters. Dick File culturAl concerns This is in regards to the museum and art gallery. Has anyone thought of an addition to the existing museum in the middle between what is there now and
Salmon Arm at that time. Their faces fell and it was plain to see they were in a real bind. I will never forget what happened
joining on to the old library? There is ample square footage of land available. One could accommodate a second floor. I think we know there is speculation of a new two-storey art gallery on the old flower shop site and also of a new museum on the Coldstream Hotel property. One could kill two birds with one stone in this situation, meaning the art gallery and museum. One half of the main floor, art gallery and the other museum, plus whatever is needed from the old library. The top floor could go to the art gallery. As the city is low on money for funding and other issues, it could even sell one of the above mentioned properties at a profit and have the money it needs. This could be one way of saving major money for city taxpayers. We might even be able to add six police officers rather than eliminating two for our city's policing needs. chuck columbus speciAl event Together for Christmas hosted its fourth Christmas dinner Dec. 25, 12. Once again, this was an outstanding event, enjoyed by both the guests and volunteers. The organizational skills of

Angela and Maria Durfeld and their crafting group, Darlene Heaney in the kitchen and Dave and Rhodina Hobbs with all of the rest of the volunteers ensured a smooth flow for the afternoon. The number of volunteers included those from two baking bees, three days of preparations leading up to Christmas Day, as well as Christmas Day and cleanup Dec. 27. Our focus for this event is for anyone in need of a place to be on Christmas Day, especially those that are alone or lonely. This year, 263 meals were served to our guests. Besides the main event of the Christmas turkey dinner with all the trimmings, our guests are entertained throughout the time the doors are open. This entertainment is in the form of music provided as well as crafts being done prior to the serving of the meal. This community event is very special, in that our guests are treated to a restaurant-type meal with the guests being waited upon. Most dinners of this type are primarily cafeteria style meals.

When he got back on the bus, he apologized for the delay and proceeded to tell them that one way or another, he would make sure they got home. So after he got back to Enderby on his last run, he drove them home to Salmon Arm. He didn’t have to do this, but he wasn’t that kind of person. I got to know my bus driver that day.

This community has once again shown the rest of the world what community spirit is all about, in its ability to gift back to our community. ron Birch, Joe Dorval and lisa Froom couple oF thoughts In a past edition of The Morning Star, I read on page A3 that Vernon council will need to raise property taxes because they were short just over $1 million in revenue. Then on page A5, there was an article that the cosmetic beautification of 29th Street was going ahead at a cost of $1 million. Am I the only one that sees the obvious here? Lately in the news, I have observed that two people did a presentation to Vernon council regarding puppy/kitty mills. Vernon council stood up and took notice and are looking into what they can do. In another news story, a young girl did a presentation to Vernon
council in regards to the municipality becoming greener. Vernon council stood up and took notice and said they would look into what they could do. Yet a petition from 1,670 people regarding the Okanagan Landing Volunteer Fire Department is ignored. No politically correct issues there I guess. len ganz

Coldstream taxpayers have a chance to examine how their municipal dollars are being spent. The district will host a public open house today from 6 to 8 p.m. at the municipal hall to go over the 2013 budget. The $8 million financial plan calls for a tax increase of 4.12 per cent (which equates to nearly $40 extra for the average residential property). A few factors have led to the increase, including the mechanic shop, heightened RCMP costs and the elimination of HST April 1. “The transition back to PST is a big issue,” said Trevor Seibel, director of financial administration. Under the current HST tax, the district could

recover 10.25 per cent of the 12 per cent tax. But by reverting back to the GST/PST system, it can only recover the five per cent GST. The transition will cost the district approximately $75,000. Another financial challenge for the 2013 budget is coming up with an additional $65,000 to cover increased RCMP costs. The district budgets for seven officers, and the cost per officer has increased about Trevor Seibel $9,000 for 2013. Coldstream also has to plan for RCMP costs to double in another four or five years. “It’s obviously a challenge,” said Seibel, of the increased cost yet need for public safety. Other increases included in the budget include operational costs, which are being allocated to snow removal, drainage, traffic services and other public works services. Coldstream’s budget has $3 million allocated for capital projects, which include: completion of the mechanic shop, pavement management, the Kidston Road path, a water tender for the Lavington fire hall and the Lavington wetland. Public comments on the budget can be emailed to email@example.com. There is also a comment form at www.districtofcoldstream.ca. Public comments will be considered at the March 11 council meeting (in Lavington), as the district prepares to adopt its budget before May 15.

Yuuuuup! Storage Wars are back. The popular storage auction, based on the popular TV show Storage Wars, returns to Vernon Thursday at the Storit Place. “It’s just like the show,” said auctioneer Kevin Rothwell, as angle grinders will be used to saw off the locks of six units, and the potential buyers will have five minutes to check out the contents. Thursday’s event will benefit the Upper Room Mission, who will be on site with a canteen. The $2 admission rate will also support the Mission. The auction starts at 1 p.m. at 2402-43rd St. and is expected to draw a significant crowd.
OFF Last Ticketed Price
“During the last one (in November) we had 109 or 110 registered bidders and a crowd of about 200,” said Rothwell. “Generally they’re a lot of fun. There’s part entertainment value and usually half the crowd is just there to watch.” But for those bidding, there is also an opportunity to find some treasures. “Some people do really well,” said Rothwell of those with the trained eye who can spot hidden safes, antiques and potential gold mines. Units are sold for various prices, depending on the contents and bids. “We’ve had everything from $5 and it’s yours... to $2,900.”

Vernon hip hop artist SonReal is up for his first Juno award KriStin FronemAn
Morning Star Staff
Vernon son Aaron Hoffman has not only hit the international hip hop circuit with his fast-rapping alter ego SonReal, he has now been nominated for a Juno award. Announced Tuesday morning, SonReal is up for Best Rap Recording of the Year along with Toronto producer/rapper Rich Kidd for their album, The Closers. They are nominated along with Halifax’s SonReal Classified, Vancouver’s Madchild, Toronto’s JD Era and Toronto rap pioneer Maestro Fresh Wes. “It feels amazing to get recognized for something you work so hard at,” said SonReal when contacted by The Morning Star.
“I’ve been doing this for a long time and there is definitely been times where I wouldn’t be able to foresee a Juno nomination. In the last year things have really picked up, so I’m just trying to use this award as motivation to keep working harder and take things further.” Hoffman, 26, who was raised in Vernon and attended W.L. Seaton Secondary School, has been based in Vancouver for the past seven years, but still comes home on occasion to visit. He was last in town over Christmas, where he gave a soldout concert at a local night club on Boxing Day. “Coming back home to Vernon is great. My mom and other family are there. I’ve only been back there a few times this year and although I’ve been in Vancouver for almost seven years, Vernon really does still feel like home,” Hoffman told The Morning Star back in December. With a number of top selling mixtapes and four full-length
albums to his name, SonReal recently signed a two album deal with BlackBox Records/Universal, and has joined The Agency Group, North America’s largest booking agent. He also flew to Hollywood, Calif. with Rich Kidd to record the duo’s 10-song album The Closers. Released in October, the album debuted at No. 3 on the iTunes Canada HipHop charts ahead of Kanye West’s Cruel Summer. The album’s first single, Money Money, which was shot in a century-old mansion outside of Toronto, has also been in heavy rotation on MuchMusic. Joining SonReal on the local Juno nomination roster is former Vernon Viper defenceman, now country music artist, Chad Brownlee of Kelowna, who was nominated for Country Album of the Year for his album Love Me or Leave Me. The Junos will be handed out on April 21 at The Brandt Centre in Regina.

Harmonica whiz gets back to business Doucette shows why he is the Tank of the blues harp
Dvoira YanovskY For The Morning Star
Winter will melt away when electrifying master bluesman of the harmonica Sherman “Tank” Doucette and his Tankful of Blues heat up the stage at the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. Tankful of Blues’ terrific lineup includes Cole Leaver on guitar, Robert Johnson on guitar, Grant Jones on bass, and John Modder on drums. Special surprise guest Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Juno awardwinning king of the boogie-woogie piano, will join Doucette during the evening. “We’ll be playing a lot of Louis Jordan, Jimmy Rogers, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, along with my own originals,” said Doucette. But don’t try to pin Doucette down when it comes to specifics. “I usually don’t write a set list. I have more than 100 songs in my head that we’re ready to play. I choose the next tune based on the audience’s response. I’m an entertainer first – I play for the people,” said Doucette. Doucette brings his usual high energy “blues on fire” style to the fans. “I tend to play three or four songs for the audience and then choose a ballad so I can pull it back, take a little breather from all the energy, and then bare my soul,” said Doucette. “Then I ramp it up again – I love leaving at the end of the night with the room in a state of frenzy.” Born into a musical family in North Battleford, Sask., Doucette has been playing music since he
Blues harpist sherman “Tank” Doucette returns to the vernon Jazz Club with his Tankful of Blues, saturday. was a young boy. On the road by age 15, Doucette took his harmonica to Vancouver, discovering the Chicago blues style as expressed by legendary blues musicians Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, and James Cotton. “A guy in Saskatoon let me listen to a Muddy Waters’ record and, wow, I loved the music. The guy saw I was so impressed and gave me the record,” said Doucette. Inspired, Doucette eventually developed his own particular brand of playing, greatly influenced by the late, great Paul Butterfield. He began performing in a variety of local blues and rock bands. In 1977, Doucette survived a massive explosion in a lumber mill that left him with burns to over 50 per cent of his body. His determination to recover earned him the nickname “Tank.” This determination fuels Doucette’s desire to stick with the blues. “I’m still a contender. All my heroes — great harp legends like Paul Butterfield, Little Walter, Junior Wells — have died. I’m ready to step into that void
because I still feel passionate about the blues and about keeping it alive,” said Doucette.

Festival welcomes Roberts
Morning Star Staff
The vocal department of the Vernon Registered Music Teachers hosts adjudicator George “Geordie” Roberts, who is working with voice students during the RMT’s music festival/workshop at All Saints Anglican Church this week. “Festivals provide a fantastic learning opportunity for vocal students,” said Kim van Wensem, a vocal instructor and registered music teacher at the Vernon Community Music School. “Working diligently on classical and musical theatre songs, some students will perform as many as five pieces. Students receive feedback and have an opportunity to work with this professional of music that they might not otherwise have a chance to meet.” The festival is also a kind of homecoming for Roberts. Born in Enderby, where he was a graduate of the then newly-opened A.L. Fortune School in 1978, Roberts would go on to graduate from the School of Music at UBC and the Vancouver Academy of Music. In 13 seasons with the Vancouver Chamber Choir, Roberts was a frequent soloist in concert, on recordings and in many CBC radio broadcasts. He also performed with the a cappella quartet Fourtissimo for 10 years, specializing in vocal jazz and renaissance repertoire. His solo career has included engagements with Early Music Vancouver, Trinity Western University, the Vancouver Symphony, Masterpiece Music, Festival Vancouver and many community organizations in the Lower Mainland. Along with directing many acclaimed choirs, Roberts has been the vocal instructor at the West Coast

Geordie Roberts is back in the North Okanagan to adjudicate the Vernon Registered Music Teachers’ vocal festival this week. Family Music Festival in Langley for 19 summers, offering group instruction in vocal technique, song interpretation and diction for singers. He is currently a faculty member at Capilano University’s music department in North Vancouver, and the coordinator of Music at Highlands. “The public is invited to attend any part of the festival and admission is by donation. Not only will the festival feature some fantastic local talent, it’s also a great opportunity for anyone studying or interested in studying voice to learn valuable lessons about different singing styles and proper technique,” said van Wensem. All performances take place at All Saints Anglican Church starting Thursday at 1 p.m. until Saturday, with a gala recital on March 10 at 2 p.m. Members of the public are welcome to drop in.

Teacher Isabel Simard and her students stand in front of the Hupel School in 1944. The town of Hupel, near Enderby, is the topic of Heritage Night taking place Friday at the Enderby & District Museum. Guest speakers are Peter Vander Sar and Rob Dale. Vander Sar has researched and written an article about Mike Hupel, while Dale, a third-generation resident of the area, will speak about the early settlers and industry of Hupel. Everyone is welcome to attend Heritage Night, which takes place Friday at 7 p.m. at the museum. Refreshments will follow the meeting.
Ready to start sowing
he sun is getting warmer and in our yard, there are only a few patches of snow left but within a few days, I will be able to start some early clean-up. I have to open the greenhouse and the cold frames on sunny days. The growth on some of the perennials is already showing through the mulch of leaves covering them. Don’t forget the 19th annual Shuswap Seed Swap & Sale at the AL Fortune School in Enderby March 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 Jocelyne sewell p.m. There will be more than 40 vendors, and the event includes a worm composting demonstration, a silent auction, lectures and a DVD on GMOs. Admission is only $3, with children and students free. The new seeds are already on display in many stores and if you are like me, you are eager to start something growing for the new season. More and more people are starting to grow from seeds. This way you have access to more interesting plants and have more control over what you really want to have in your garden. However,
A GArdener’s diAry
starting your seeds too early will only get you leggy and overgrown plants unless you have the right amount of light. Annuals and vegetables are easy to grow. You can find everything you need to start your seeds at garden centres and many other locations. When growing seedlings, it is important to use sterile potting soil and pots. Never use soil from your garden or old potting soil. If you are reusing containers, wash with soapy water and a little bleach. This will save you a lot of trouble. Also, don’t forget to clean your tools. Seedlings need warmth to germinate but as soon as they come up, they will appreciate a cooler temperature. Most of the seed packets have the information required. Some seeds need light to germinate but most of them like to be covered. Seeds should be covered about three times their sizes. If you sow too deep, they will struggle to come up and if not deep enough they might dry up before having a chance to sprout. Some flats come with a plastic dome lid or you can put them in a plastic bag but never sit them in a sunny window with the top on as they might cook inside. At the first signs of germination, uncover or remove the plastic bag. Avoid too much water. When the top
of the soil looks dry, water your trays with a fine spray. Too much force will push your seeds together and you will end up with a whole bunch of seedlings together. Avoid soggy soil and poor air circulation. This could be a cause for fungal disease called damping off that can kill your seedlings overnight. Unless you have lots of light, such as a southern exposure, it is better to grow your seedlings with extra lights. I have lots of windows but I also have many sets of fluorescent lights, and I rotate my trays. You should keep the top of your seedlings about eight to 10 centimetres from the light. This will prevent your plants from becoming too spindly. They should receive 14 to 16 hours of light. Plugging them into a timer will make your task easier. When the seedlings have two sets of true leaves, start feeding once a week with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer at half-strength, working up to full strength after a few weeks. I will be at the Lumby Legion on Saturday with a few plants and seeds. This is the first sale of the year, with the vendors from the Lumby Public Market, starting at 10 a.m. For more information: 250-558-4556.

A taste of Italy at home
ot too long ago I picked up an amazing bargain on a medium-size deluxe frozen pizza, the perfect thing to have on hand for those rushed hockey game nights, or so I thought. I mean, when do you see a pizza for $3.39? The picture on the box looked really good. Well, the day came to cook my pizza. I opened the box, took a look, immediately checked the box, looked again. This surely is the wrong pizza! But wait; there were rounds of pepperoni, 10 in fact (the box displayed 20, and yes I did count them) bunched well inside the twocathi Litzenberger and-a-half-inch-thick barren looking crust. Then I spied three pieces of pepper, oh, and then two pieces of onion, and wait, could that be a piece of mushroom? Hmm, I guess it was a deluxe pizza after all. Whatever sauce there was had to be hidden somewhere in the middle of the thing under a couple of teaspoons of white cheese and the said toppings. I felt ripped off! But then, what did I expect for three bucks? Still, it’s not fair to trick people, especially those who might be on tight budgets. My solution is to make your own pizza; it’s inexpensive and far healthier than purchasing a cheap bargain. Today I also have a delicious dessert that the kids will love. It’s a quick and easy recipe for frozen fruit yogurt. Both are well suited to be served at one meal.

Cafe lets teenagers guide the way richard rolke Morning Star Staff
An investment is being made in Enderby youth. The inaugural Youth Cafe will be held at the Country Coffee House Friday at 5:30 p.m. “It’s a way for them to get together,” said Chief Wayne Christian, with the Splatsin First Nation. Youth Cafe is an initiative of the City of Enderby, the Splatsin First Nation, Area F, the North OkanaganShuswap School District and the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club. The project is directed towards teens between
“We want this to be a safe place for youth.” — Howie Cyr
the ages of 13 and 16. “We want this to be a safe place for youth to go and visit,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. “We want to provide a place to hang out instead of a street corner.” The concept of a regular gathering place arose out of a teen summit last year. “Those involved
talked about the issues that affect youth in the Enderby area,” said Cyr. While the jurisdictions are providing the venue and covering the cost, how Youth Cafe proceeds will depend on the participants. “We want this to be largely driven by the youth,” said Cyr. Teens will determine
what activities they want to pursue, such as a movie night or pizza party. There will be an opportunities for counsellors to discuss issues of importance and the RCMP may also visit. “It will be an opportunity to interact with them at a different level,” said Cyr of the police. Christian insists that his band and the other jurisdictions are dedicated to meeting the needs of local youth. “We want to provide them with the social skills they will need as they become adults,” he said.
Youth Cafe will be held every second Friday at the Country Coffee House, which is at the corner of Mill Avenue and Belvedere Street.

Falkland remains in riding
mentioned in a previous column that the number of members of Parliament in B.C. was to increase by six seats to reflect its population growth. An Electoral Boundaries Commission was appointed to determine the new riding boundaries. On the initial revised riding map, Falkland, much of Sorrento, and Chase were removed from the Okanagan-Shuswap riding. After many constituents in these areas appealed, the commission has announced that the riding of Okanagan-Shuswap will not have any boundary changes. This leaves the Okanagan-Shuswap riding with a population of 121,000, or 15.5 per cent over the quota. I believe this is manageable. Thank you to those that contributed in supporting this outcome.
In the next federal election in 2015, there will be 30 more seats in the House of Commons, six in B.C., six in Alberta, 15 in Ontario and three in Quebec. This will increase the House from Colin Mayes 308 members to 338 or about one member to every 100,000 citizens. Your government has continued working on Senate reform and recently we announced the launch of a reference on Senate reform to the Supreme Court of Canada. Our government believes that the Senate, in its unelected and unaccountable state, must change in order to reach its full potential as a democratic institution serving Canadians. The Supreme Court of Canada will consider the constitutional amending procedure for Senate reform. The questions will

seek legal certainty on the constitutional amending procedure for term limits for senators, democratic selection of Senate nominees, net worth and property qualifications for senators and the option of abolishing the Senate. Presently, a senatorâ€™s term is for 45 years or until they reach the age of 75, whichever comes first. Your government
believes this is unreasonable. We also believe senators should be elected by citizens in their region and not appointed. We believe senators should live in Canada during their term in office and that their primary residence should be in the region they represent. As a number of provincial premiers have voiced their favour for
the abolition of the Senate, we are seeking the constitutionality of this option. The fundamental principle of a democracy is representation by population and those that represent the people should be elected by the people. We will seek to enact these principles as we go forward. Colin Mayes is the MP for the OkanaganShuswap.

The North Kamloops Lions stopped the visiting Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers 4-2 Sunday night at Memorial Arena to win the Okanagan Mainline Midget Tier 1 Hockey League semifinal series 2-1. The Lions came out on a tear and grabbed a 3-0 lead early in the second period. The Vipers responded with two goals by first-year centre Blaine Caton, with the helpers going to Richard Meaney, Logan Geefs and Travis Sexsmith in support of Bruin Stair. North Kamloops snuck another one in on a defensive zone breakdown. Jackson Scott, Joe Falsetta, Jacob Coelho and Adam Struch scored for the Lions, who had Nolan Munden in goal. Vernon took a 4-0 lead and hung on for an 8-5 victory in lightning-fast Game 2 before 400 fans Saturday at Civic Arena. The line of Curtis Sexsmith (3+1), Wyatt Warnes (1+3) and Jacob Dolinar (5A) jumpstarted the Vipers with the opening four goals in front of Jayden Campbell. Logan Geefs (2+1) started the next round of scoring with Caton (2A) and Travis Churchill on the assists. Chad Thomas and captain Richard Meaney rounded out the scoring with Austin Garrington and Cole Woodliffe getting the helpers. Struch, with two, Scott, Falsetta and Brody Moorman scored for the Lions. Riley Woodland and Munden split the goaltending. “It was a great season for the boys overall,” said head coach Robert Spraggs, assisted by Scott Flood, Mike Burke and Jason Silzer. “We knew that allowing the guys to go up and be part of the Junior B programs might hurt our team chemistry a bit, but I never imagined we would have such trouble scoring. “We had 12 players AP’d at the Junior B level and they played a combined 31 KIJHL games. That’s pretty impressive for a Vernon Midget team. “Every player on this team now has the skills they need to chase their hockey dreams. It’s just a little unfortunate we couldn’t put it all together for a long playoff run.” The Sladen Moore Lakers and Kamloops Royal Purple Mystix are going to the deciding Game 3 in their Okanagan Bantam A Female semifinal series. The Lakers rallied to stop Kamloops 2-1 in overtime Saturday at Civic Arena before losing 3-1 Sunday at Kamloops Memorial Arena. The Sladen Moore crew, who had given up one goal to Kamloops all season, went down early in the series opener before rugged winger Samantha Head equalized late in the third on a goal-mouth scramble.

Wolfpack complete Senior Atom sweep Continued from A27
Playing shorthanded in overtime, Mairyn Tucker converted a nice pass from Emily Clarke on a two-on-one break. Maya Baker was sensational in net as the pesky Mystix, who had just nine skaters, enjoyed several solid scoring chances. In Game 2, the Lakers took the early lead with a great second-effort goal by Jenna Fletcher. Kamloops levelled the score on a strange bounce off a Lakers’ player before adding two more snipes. The Lakers had trouble with the relentless forechecking by Kamloops and when they had scoring chances, Mystix goalie Sydney Carter stoned them. Game 3 goes Sunday, 12:15 p.m., at Civic. In Senior Atom Development play, the Vernon H&L Glass Wolfpack swept the Kelowna Hawks in a home-and-home, 10-3 Saturday at Wesbild Centre and 7-2 Sunday in Kelowna. Ben King supplied five goals and Logan Chapdelaine added a deuce for the Pack in the first game. Other Vernon offence came from Lucas Zubrod (1+4) Steel Quiring and Ben Imrich. In Kelowna, the H&L Glass crew got four goals from Trevor Kennedy, 2+2 from King and 1+2 from Imrich. Goaltending duties were split between Cayden Hamming and Tanner Witt. The Valley Wood Remanufacturing Venom kept their unbeaten streak alive Sunday at Wesbild with a 7-0 win over
Kamloops #1. Gavin Medema and Scott Gilowski led the charge with two goals each while singles went to Brayden Szeman, Cameron Moger and Coletyn Boyarski. Owen Swiscoski and Kobe Grant shared the goaltending duties for the shutout. The playoff tournament goes March 1-3 in Penticton. The Coca-Cola Midget Vipers iced Winfield Bruins 6-1 and stuffed the Summerland Jets 11-1 in exhibition games as they prepare for the Tri-Cities tournament this weekend in Washington State. The Bruins spoiled Liam McOnie’s shutout bid with 18 seconds left. Jeff Bochon led the Coke crew with 2+1, while singles were added by Hayden Chase, Lee Springer, Jordan Rea and Scott Latwat, shorthanded. Evan Campagnolo went the distance in goal Sunday with Jordan Rea netting 3+2 and Mitchell Lukacs supplying 2+3. Bochon had two goals and one helper. Conor Payne and Dustin Copeland each had 1+2, while Brandon Rysen and Conor Butte-Landsfried also scored. The Sun Valley Source For Sports Tier 2 Renegades went 3-1 at a Bantam Rep tourney in Williams Lake. Playoffs were cancelled Sunday as city workers set up picket lines. The Renegades iced the Pursuit of Excellence 5-0, drubbed Dawson Creek 10-1, lost 6-2 to Williams Lake and ambushed Abbotsford 9-2.
Goalie Kieran Watts, Jarett Campbell, Eamonn Miller and Bryce Pyle picked up MVP honours, while Jagger Williamson led the offence with 5+3. Kaden Black added 3+3, while Matt Kowalski earned 2+3, Campbell had 2+2 and Brady Marzocco pocketed 1+4. The Fix Auto Vikings won all three of their exhibition games in Bantam Tier 3 action. The Vikes opened with a 3-1 win over the Westside Warriors 3-1 in front of Conor Webb and Ethan Huizinga. Stephane Richard, Kyle Sherwood and Connor Johnston handled the offence. The Fix It gang brushed back the Penticton Jr. Vees 5-1 with Richard (1+3), Carl Main, call-up Brett Lambert, Jason Shaigec and Johnston supplying the offence. Vernon capped the weekend by grounding Kelowna Tier 4 Rockets 5-2 on two goals apiece from Owen Beliveau and Richard, and one from Main. The North Okanagan Pee Wee Tier 4 Knights tied the Kamloops Tomahawks 6-6 and toppled the Vernon Nixon Wenger Tier 3 Rattlers 6-4 in exhibition play. Matt Dolinar (2+1), Griffin Evans (1+4), Alex Gilowski, Matt Dolinar and Eli Dwyer scored in the tie, while Dwyer, Dolinar, Wes Graves, Gilowski, Mike Kormany and Kord Haller had snipes in the victory. Gavin Fleck (2), Cory Lazar and Aidan Rysen replied for the Rattlers.

Garrett Adams recorded both shutouts as the Vernon Cornerstone Dental Rush opened Thompson Okanagan Ringette League playoffs with a pair of Tween A wins last weekend. The Rush iced the Kelowna Impact 3-0 Saturday at the Capital News Centre in Kelowna, and then hammered Shuswap 11-0 Sunday. In a tough, end-to-end battle with Kelowna, Delaney Tetrault pegged the dental crew to a 1-0 lead in period one, assisted by Alyssa Racine and Emma Carter. Kendra Ostafie, from Shelby Conners, doubled the lead in the second period, and Alex Drury capped the offence with an empty-netter, from Carter.
Ostafie and Racine each had three goals against Shuswap, with Drury (2), Conners, Delaney Tetrault and Emma Carter earning singles. The Vernon Fury claimed the TORL Cup by sweeping the best-ofthree set against the Kelowna Hype last weekend. The Fury, sponsored by Century 21 Team B.C., doubled the Hype 4-2 in Game 1 Saturday in Vernon. Jocelyn Jones took a feed from Aryana Jacura for the opening goal, while Maddie Powls and Brenna Beck added to the offence on assists from Jacura. Riley Martian sealed the deal in the second period on a betweenthe-legs backhand pass from Powls.

Snakes gain ground on SilverBacks who carried the play for the remainder of the period, but were unable to convert on numerous odd-man rushes. “Those opportunities aren’t just going to keep coming,” said Tegeler. “You’ve got to finish when you can. We started to bear down in the third and play as a team.” Perhaps frustrated by their lack of finish, the Snakes ran into penalty trouble in the second period, which allowed Cowichan to seize the momentum. Jesse Neher (7th) earned the 2-0 goal at the 3:48 mark, beating Todosychuk (28 saves) shortside from in close just moments after the Vernon tender had denied captain Mikael Jung on a partial breakaway. Said Caps’ interim head coach Aaron Plumb, who inherited the gig when Jim Ingram parted ways with the club: “We started getting our feet involved in the game (in the second period), started getting a little more physical and that creates turnovers and more chances for us. “They really needed those two points so we knew they were going to come hard. We just didn’t have enough to hold them off.” Viper rookie Mitch McAllister (2nd) started Vernon’s comeback early in the third period when a

The Vernon Vipers aren’t quite ready to give up on their B.C. Hockey League post-season dream just yet. With points in three straight games, the 17-23-1-8 Snakes have closed the gap on the sputtering Salmon Arm SilverBacks (21-232-4) to five points, with a game in hand. The ‘Backs, who occupy the fourth and final Interior Division playoff spot, have lost five straight and face a doozy of a schedule to close out the regular season. After a crucial matchup with the Snakes Friday at Shaw Centre, the Gorillas end with five road games, including a three-game swing to the Coast/Vancouver Island. The fifth-place Trail Smoke Eaters (22-27-0-2) have an even worse schedule, with four of their remaining five games against the first-place Penticton Vees (34-130-3). With four of their remaining seven tilts on the road, the Vipers’ dance card is hardly ideal, but given their resiliency of late, there is belief in the dressing room that a playoff berth is achievable.

Dane Gibson of the Cowichan Valley Capitals protects the puck from Logan mick of the Vipers Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. Capitals is proof of that. Trailing 2-0 after 40 minutes, the Snakes reeled off three unanswered goals, capped by Mason Blacklock’s overtime winner, to claim victory in front of 1,600 fans at Wesbild Centre. “We’ve been able to take teams deep into the game and change the outcome,” said Viper forward Andrew Tegeler, who dished a gorgeous saucer pass to Blacklock for the third-period equalizer. “Some of the boys stepped up in the locker room and told us to bear down. We had tons of chances and
for some reason we started clicking in the third.” Working behind the net in OT, Colton Sparrow found Blacklock lurking in the slot for the winner, his team-leading 17th goal, with just 36 seconds to go in the 4-on-4 frame. The last-overall Caps (11-31-15) got off to a fortuitous road start, converting at the 20-second mark when Garrett Skrbich (10th) redirected a rebound off his skate past Danny Todosychuk. That seemed to wake the Snakes,
rebound hit him at the side of the net, and the puck bounced up and over netminder Connor LaCouvee. LaCouvee made an all-world save on d-man Michael Statchuk in the third period, reaching crosscrease to make a paddle save on a rebound after TJ Dumonceaux’s point blast hit the crossbar. “We’ve struggled with that (third period) all year,” said LaCouvee, a Qualicum Beach native who finished with 46 saves for third star. “We know what we need to do, we just can’t do it.” While unhappy with the effort in the second period, Vipers’ head coach Jason Williamson liked his team’s moxy. “There is no quit in this hockey club,” he said. “They’ve got some confidence in being able to come from behind. “They know the importance of the games and having to go and compete. They got on their heels a bit, but after that we did a good job of pushing the pace.” SNAKE BITES: There is a fan bus going to Friday’s game in Salmon Arm.

Knights clinch division title Morning Star Staff
There was no formal celebration as the North Okanagan Knights won their first Kootenay International Junior Hockey League divisional title Sunday afternoon at the Nor-Val Sports Centre. The Knights grounded the last-place Chase Heat 5-1 to clinch the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference Doug Birks Division crown, one point ahead of the Sicamous Eagles. “We were all excited, but we kept it calm because we have to play next weekend,” said rookie forward Colton Thibault, who earned first star with 2+1. The Knights tied for third overall with the Kelowna Chiefs in the 20-team loop at 34-14-2-2. The Castlegar Rebels topped the table with 78 points, followed by the Fernie Ghostriders, at 74. North Okanagan opens the best-of-seven playoffs Friday night at home against the Kamloops Storm, 30 points back and fourth in the division.
Thibault, one of eight players from Vernon and area, said a late-season flurry of wins pushed the Knights to glory. “When we had that 11-game streak, we were persistent; we didn’t stop and we kept getting better,” he said. “We play a pressure system and we’re fast down low.” Thibault finished with 16 goals and 42 points, fifth best on the team. He scored the winner, on a first-period powerplay versus the Heat, and added a shorthanded tally in the second period. D-man Mac Ferner fired his ninth goal of the year to open the Knights’ scoring, while rookie Matty Saharchuk registered his teamleading 32nd and Brandon Shirley netted his first. Saharchuk, a 17-year-old out of Fort St. James, was recently listed by the WHL Everett Silvertips. Thibault likes Saharchuk’s skill set. “You saw the potential and Derek (centre Andrews) works so hard that Matty finds a spot and he’s got a quick release and a hard shot.”

Levi Chamberlain (4th) equalized for the Heat, who finished with just 11 wins despite returning most of last year’s roster. The Knights outshot Chase 55-20 with Dustin Nikkel tak-
ing the win and Jacob Mattes the loss before 300 fans. Game 2 in the playoff series goes Saturday night at Nor-Val (7:30). Third game is Monday night at McArthur Island Sports Centre in Kamloops.
Canada remains unbeaten in Russia Canadian Curling Association/Morning Star Staff
Team Canada is the lone unbeaten team heading into action today at the World Wheelchair Curling Championships in Sochi, Russia. The Canadian team – skip Jim Armstrong (Cambridge, Ont.), third Dennis Thiessen (Sanford, Man.), second Ina Forrest (Armstrong), lead Sonja Gaudet (Vernon), alternate Mark Ideson (London) and coach Joe Rea (Prince George) – improved to 6-0 with a 7-1 win over Patrick McDonald of the U.S. Tuesday morning. Canada scored single points in the first four ends to take control, then put the victory away with a deuce in the sixth and a stolen single in the seventh at the Ice Cube Curling Center, the host venue for the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic curling competitions. “It’s a wonderful venue here,” said Gaudet, who’s hoping to curl for a third Paralympic gold medal in 2014. “Accessibility is great and the ice is wonderful. So we’re really looking forward to hopefully being back here next year.” While Canada is in solid position for a playoff spot (the top four teams advance to the playoffs), Gaudet noted the playing field is much more level than it used to be. “I think it has evolved incredibly fast,” she said. “There isn’t much of a gap any more; we’ve all taken our game to another level.” The Canadians posted earlier wins over Russia (8-5), China (9-5) and Slovakia (7-3), and will have a chance to nail down a playoff spot when they take on Sweden’s Jalle Jungnell (4-1) and Finland’s Vesa Hellman (3-3) in today’s action.

Supported by third Erin Huitema, second Sarah Huitema, lead Emma Denty and alternate Megan deSousa, she slammed Kelowna’s Mackenzie Clark 13-3 Saturday night and shaded Kamloops’ Sierra Fisher 8-7 Sunday morning.

Bridge by Phillip Alder
WHEN TO LEAD HIGH OR LOW Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, wrote, “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!” In bridge, we think left and right when considering our opponents. We think low and high when deciding which card to lead from a given holding (or whether to play low or high when following suit). This week, let’s look at the single most important rule for defenders: When you lead from length, if you lead a low card, you guarantee an honor in that suit; without an honor, lead an unnecessarily high card. (There is one clear exception
to that rule, which we will look at later this week.) Today’s deal provides a good example. What should West lead against three notrump? The auction is simple and quantitative. West should lead the spade eight, the high card denying an honor in the suit. Then how should East defend? Can the eight be fourthhighest from length and strength? Apply the Rule of Eleven. Eight from 11 is three, but East can see four spades higher than the eight on the board and in his hand. So, the eight must be top of nothing. And since South has the spade king and jack, it is pointless to plug away at that suit.
Instead, East should win the first trick with his spade ace and shift to the club queen. Here, that works well, netting the first five tricks for the defenders. Always read partner’s lead, deciding what he has led from; in particular, is he weak or strong in that suit?

Obituaries Harriet Chase
3 lines: $55
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our Mother, Grandmother and sister, Harriet Chase, the afternoon of February 6, 2013, in Revelstoke, B.C., with family beside her. In the home of Harriet’s birth, Pantyffynnon, Carmarthenshire, in South Wales, her life was filled with love and caring, family and life-long friends, music and chapel. From childhood Harriet would sing; it was expected of her to come home with prizes from the local Eisteddfod, which she did. While serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service Harriet met Canadian Thomas Grant Chase and a few years after their marriage made the voyage to Canada with toddler Miriam and baby Grant. Tom’s sisters met them, Easter-time, in Vernon, B.C., which would become their family home for over fifty years. Mam to Miriam Elaine (David) Williams, Andrew George Grant (d Dec. 13, 1993), Thomas Keith (d. Feb., 1948), Pamela Gwyneth Montgomery, Howard Emmett Kent, and Elizabeth (Keith) Hollingsworth; Mam-gu to Keith (Lisa) Chase, Sasha (Michael) Chamberlin, Donovan (Sylvia) and Matthew (Patti) Montgomery, and twenty great-grandchildren; sister of Freda Kathleen (Dennis) Colbourne of Alcester, England. Cousins in Wales, nieces and nephews mourn with us. In choirs always, enjoying especially the Vernon Ladies’, Trinity Chancel and Okanagan Symphony choirs and Scott Singers; long-time membership with Trinity United Church and their Hi-Lo Unit; piano and vocal lessons; to be home with family, knitting, reading, writing letters, adding a few lines of verse from poems she would collect. Harriet met life’s challenges with determined strength, maintained deep loyalty to her Welsh upbringing, was superbly bilingual. It wasn’t until March 1977 that, with Tom and Elizabeth, Harriet returned to visit family in England and Wales and, after Tom’s death April 13, 1992, traveled alone to her homeland in March 1993. Harriet was so appreciative of Dr. Molder’s care, the assistance of Queen Victoria Hospital staff during her brief stays there, and staff at Pharmasave. Her family thanks Rev. Ken Jones for his times with Harriet, and Gary and Chrissie Sulz of Brandon Bowers Funeral Service. Although a formal funeral was not desired, Harriet’s family and close friends will gather in Vernon on March 27 for a memorial service. Diolch am fod ein Mam a Nain, rydym yn caru ti. Nos da, Mam, Mam-gu.

Health issues prompt Pat Bell to leave politics tom fletcher Black Press
Jobs Minister Pat Bell says he will remain in Premier Christy Clark’s cabinet until the May 14 provincial election, but he has withdrawn his candidacy to run for re-election due to a heart condition. He is continuing his duties as minister of jobs, tourism and skills training, a portfolio created by Clark as the centrepiece of her job strategy.
“Sometimes when you’re in politics, you automatically think you have become smarter over a period of time,” Bell said. “I think there’s some evidence that points to the opposite. So renewal is not a bad thing.” Bell was nominated to run for a fourth term in Prince George-Mackenzie, a seat he has held since the B.C. Liberal landslide of 2001. He declined to identify candidates to seek the party nomination, but said he hopes toT:10” see a competition for the job.
Bell’s doctor discovered an aneurysm last fall in one of the arteries connecting to his heart. The condition is typically a bulge in the blood vessel that indicates weakness of the wall. If it bursts it is fatal. Bell said his condition is being closely monitored, and he may need surgery if the aneurysm grows larger. But for now he is continuing his work and exercise schedule as usual, and he plans to campaign for the next B.C. Liberal candidate in his constituency.

These Chinese characters represent Gui Si: Yin Water atop Snake, which officially began on February 3 at 8.14pm (PST). Gui Si was welcomed in with major celebrations over the weekend of January 10th to chase out the negative Qi and welcome in the new prosperous Qi for 2013. So what does 2013 hold for you? Well this Snake brings in some much needed heat to warm up our emotions, however, these new found emotions will now challenge governments and people in charge. Overall the year brings change, as the birth of new ideas and new leaders emerge, and the people will want to be heard, and will do so passionately. Gui Si wants to be wise and nurturing to develop these new leaders, however there may be some clashes with the yang fire of snake as there is a presence of metal; metal leans to military… and when they get involved, things happen. 2013 can be a positive year, it’s important to focus on the ‘what can be’ and not the ‘what was’. Change can be good, as the saying goes ‘No pain, No gain…’

Do all home inspectors use a Thermal Imaging Camera (Infrared) and what are the benefits of thermal imaging?
Not all home inspectors use a Thermal Imaging Camera; in fact I am one of the only home inspectors in the Okanagan that uses a Thermal Imaging Camera. I use the camera on every home inspection that I do. The benefits of using thermal imaging technology are numerous, but in a nutshell, this is a close as one can come to x-raying a home. The camera sees and records heat. The different temperatures are registered in different colors. With that one can see where cold air is entering a home, wet spots that may indicate mold or roof leaks that may not be otherwise visible. Missing or poorly installed insulation in walls and ceilings can also be seen. Insect infestations in walls can be seen due to the heat a nest may generate. Overheating electrical breakers and circuits can also be seen. This is just some of the applications of this type of camera. Having a thermal imaging scan done on your home can reveal areas that may need improvement and save you the homeowner dollars. We can all use that.

Our Lender is suggesting that we choose a 5 year Fixed Rate Mortgage, aside from current rates being so low, are there other reasons for the suggestion? We prefer a shorter term mortgage and are confused by the strong suggestion.
What can Life Coaching do for me?
Life coaching looks at where you are now and where you want to be. It can help you be successful in all areas of your life. For example it can help you in : • Achieving goals • Discovering what is most important in your life • Designing a plan to achieve your dreams • Being happier and more successful in your existing career • Finding a new career • Giving more powerful presentations • Achieving more balance between your working and private lives • Generating focus, energy, and courage for successful transformation Whether you want to improve some aspect of your life, change your direction, or achieve your dreams, life coaching can help you.
The Government of Canada introduced a “Qualifying” Interest rate to federally regulated Lenders. The Qualifying rate for all mortgages sets a standard qualification for borrowers to be approved based upon the Bank of Canada’s current 5.24% interest rate or the best offered rate for a 5 year fixed rate mortgage. You must also take a 5 year fixed rate mortgage term in order to qualify at the lower discounted rate on a mortgage. In order to choose a term other than 5 year fixed, Borrowers have to qualify for the mortgage using 5.24%. It is now more important to understand the Fees and Penalties associated with taking a long time mortgage, as many of the large Lenders may not offer the ability to ‘blend’ the rate in the future if you require additional funds on your mortgage and you could find out the penalties and fees are substantial. If you are in this situation, please free to contact us and we will be happy to explain the benefits and the risks of locking into a long term mortgage as everyone’s application is unique and each Lender’s policy OAC /E&O accepted. is different.

I am thinking about replacing my hot water tank, but was wondering about these “on-demand” water heaters. Should I consider that instead? After space heating, water heating costs are the second largest energy expense for the typical household. Standard storage tank water heaters are still the dominant and most cost-effective water heating appliance being installed today, but the government’s drive to improve efficiency ratings may soon drive up the cost of storage tank water heaters as well. The typical storage tank water heater has an energy factor of .62 to .64 while the newer “on-demand” systems are typically in the .82 to .97 range - a substantial improvement in energy efficiency savings. These “on-demand” systems also typically last twice as long as hot water tanks before needing replacement. Tank-less “on-demand” water heaters do have their draw backs, and may not be the best solution for everyone; however, there is little doubt that they will become the standard water heating technology of the future.

How do hearing aids work in background noise?
Microphones in the aid pick up sounds in the environment and send them to set of amplifiers and are modified by special software. The signal is then sent to a miniature speaker and delivered to the ear. The newest aids are smart enough to amplify certain sounds or frequencies that are tailored to each hearing loss. Understanding speech in noise remains the main focus of most research. Background noise is present in everyone’s life. Having said that, even with normal hearing, separating speech from excessive background noise can be challenging. For people with normal hearing, the brain unconsciously filters out most background noise. With prolonged and severe hearing loss, the brain becomes lazy in this process because all sounds are reduced or inaudible and the ability to filter out noise diminishes. When an individual begins using the hearing aid all sounds are once again heard and it is necessary to retrain the brain in selective listening skills. It is critical that the hearing aid user participate in follow-up and counseling sessions during this period of adjustment. Once the aural rehabilitation is underway, most clients are once again able to filter out the majority of disturbing background noise. Discovery Plaza #6, 3100 - 35 St., Vernon
