eeling like the Michelin Man, suited up in 50 pounds of gear, the sound of my breath echoes like Darth Vader through the oxygen mask. Following the shadow of each other through the dark, smoke-filled hallway, we crawl on our hands and knees over debris to a corner away from the flames. The air is thick and hot above us, but down near the floorboards it’s bearable and provides some visibility through the thick smoke. A lesson learned as a child flashes into my mind as we aim to stay below the weight of the thermal blanket. I grasp at the hose, trying to heave its weight, but feel as though the hose is pulling me. As we move towards the source of ignition, I try to wipe the sweat dripping down my face, only to be blocked by my mask. Visions of the floor collapsing sink into my mind as we inch around the fire. ............................................................... Downstairs it is dark. I am led blindly by the light of a flashlight ahead while searching the corners for any sign of life or fire. There is none. Suddenly, we are told that the stairs have collapsed, we are trapped. Panic starts to set in as my Darth Vader breath becomes more rapid. There are only a few small basement windows, all too high to even climb out. We radio the outside crews who drop a ladder through the window. The thought of a fire inching behind us makes my heart race as I scramble to loosen the straps of my oxygen tank. “Time is of the essence,” Dave Sibilleau shouts to us. I watch the others climb the angled ladder with ease. But when my turn arises, I struggle to heave the pack up while trying to balance on the rails. I’m unsteady, my arms are shaking and somehow I must fit through this tiny window. Feelings of claustrophobia sink in as the window frame confines around me. I wriggle my way through, desperately clawing at the ground to pull myself through until relief sweeps over me. I briefly look back, flashing a grin of accomplishment over my face, as I join the troops back at accountability.

butes the decline to the economics of the last couple years. “Previous to that there was typically a lineup of people waiting to get in.” The problem isn’t just in the BX. “All departments overall are down on memberships,” said Wacey. “It’s a nationwide, provincewide issue. Across the country, volunteer fire departments are struggling with manning issues.” Along with an influx of young people heading north to work, time is one thing people appear to be lacking, as joining the department requires considerable time commitments. “You’re looking at probably anywhere from 400 to 600 hours, not counting call outs, in a year, — Bill Wacey for the first couple years,” said Wacey of the necessary training. But ask Wacey or any other firefighter and they will tell you the time invested is worth it to be part of the life-saving team. “Every single person will probably give you a different answer, from the community service – they want to give back to the community – to the excitement,” said Wacey, 55, who joined the hall in 1985 (with a full head of hair) and has been chief for 15 years now. “It’s a second job, but it’s the excitement of it, new experiences that you’ve trained for. “I love the job. At the end of the day, the people you deal with. The camaraderie, the closeness, that second family that a fire department can be.” On average, the department responds to 10 to 12 calls a month, although recent weeks have been an exception with 16 calls in just 18 days. Incidents range from structure fires to motor vehicle accidents. Anyone interested in becoming a firefighter can contact their local fire department. “In my mind it’s one of the greatest jobs in emergency services,” said Wacey of the paid, on-call duty.

Morning Star reporter/photographer Jennifer Smith gets suited up alongside BX-Swan Lake firefighter Lyndsey Pasemko before taking part in a practice burn at an old Dixon Dam Road home. Both of these are recent scenarios I was able to partake in under the guidance of the BX-Swan Lake Fire Department. The department, along with all regional firefighters, normally conduct practices at the Fire Training Centre. But this time the BX crews were able to use an old house for fire training. Thanks to the donation of the home by a local resident, the experience proved invaluable to the department.

The last time the department was granted a home to burn and train in was about six years ago, according to chief Bill Wacey. “We’ve got an immeasurable amount of training out of all of this,” said Wacey. Unfortunately, the number of firefighters taking part in this and other training exercises, as well as emergency incidents, is declining. “We’re allowed up to 31 (volunteer firefighters). I’m at 25,” said Wacey, who attri-

Water rate debate boils over richard rolke

“I don’t think we will drive any business away...”

Morning Star Staff

Officials hope to bring some rationale to the cost of water. Greater Vernon Advisory Committee members met Thursday to discuss a future structure for residential, commercial and industrial water users. “We’re setting up the philosophy and how we establish them,” said Mike Macnabb, chairperson. Revenue is required for the master water plan, which could include $100 million in infrastructure. Staff suggested that shifting more burden on to business customers could negatively impact economic development, but director Bob Spiers disagrees.

— Bob Spiers

“The cost of water doesn’t add much of an increase to a product,” he said. “I don’t think we will drive any business away because of it.” Spiers is also frustrated that it was initially believed 2013 rates could climb three per cent, but they could be higher because low users will now starting paying for water, even

under 20 cubic metres. “Mine has gone up 15 per cent,” he said. “We left here and everyone thought it was three per cent. Did everyone know what they were voting for?” Directors have instructed staff to present a water rates calculator on each category when rates change in the future. “We need something that shows what the increases are, what they are actually going to pay,” said director Bob Fleming. Director Gyula Kiss would like to see revenue generation shift from user fees to taxation. “With water rates, you always have to guess how much (money) you need,” he said. “If people reduce water, revenue is less so you have to increase rates.”

Greater Vernon residents voted Saturday on borrowing up to $7.5 million to construct a sports complex at Okanagan College. Election results were unavailable at the deadline for Sunday’s Morning Star. But details are available at www.vernonmorningstar.com, and more details will be in Wednesday’s Morning Star. A total of 1,445 people cast ballots during Wednesday’s advanced ballot — with 1,030 at the Schubert Centre, 280 at the Coldstream municipal office and 135 at the regional district office. On March 27, 1,225 ballots were cast during the first advanced poll.

Public, media help police nab suspect ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Acting on information from the public, RCMP officers arrested a suspect Friday in connection with a robbery the night before at a Vernon gas station. Police issued a video surveillance photo Friday morning of a suspect believed to be responsible for a robbery Thursday at Super Save Gas in the 4400 block of 27th Street. “Thanks to information from the public, and thanks to the media posting the suspect’s photo, calls were made to our detachment and a suspect was identified,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk Friday evening. The man was arrested on the street with-

out incident within a six-block radius of the gas station. Thursday’s incident occurred shortly before 9 p.m. when a lone male entered the gas station after another customer left the store, produced a knife and demanded money from the clerk. He left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash. As the man left the store, he walked northbound and then went westbound. A police service dog team could not pick up

a track. The photo released by RCMP Friday showed a male suspect wearing sunglasses, a red-and-white baseball hat with a black brim, one glove on his left hand and a lightcoloured hoody under a black jacket. Police also received a report Friday that a knife had been found near the gas station. Molendyk confirmed that officers recovered a knife but could not confirm if it had been used in the robbery.

Resident chases B & E suspect Morning Star Staff

A Vernon homeowner took matters into his own hands to help catch a break-and-enter suspect. Shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday, officers from the Vernon detachment were called to a report of a break-and-enter in progress in the 2300 block of 32nd Street. “Our officers responded quickly to the area, and when they arrived they were advised the homeowner had been alerted to someone in his driveway by his video surveillance camera,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk on

Friday morning. The homeowner ran out of his home and saw a male suspect in his shed. The suspect took off on foot with the homeowner in hot pursuit. “The suspect ran through Vernon Creek to the Green Valley Motel,” said Molendyk. “Our officers conducted inquiries at the motel at several rooms the suspect was seen going into.” A 35-year-old man was arrested at the motel and taken into custody. He was expected to appear in Vernon Provincial Court on Friday.

Town rings up cell service

Will You …?

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Cherryville residents continue to move towards improved communications. Telus has proposed installing a telecommunications tower on Cochrane Road so cellular phone service can be provided to residents and Highway 6 motorists. “It’s something the community really wants,” said Eugene Foisy, regional district director. Presently, there is no cell service in Cherryville except in some very limited pockets. “I have to drive to one or two spots to get service and it’s a hassle,” said Foisy. Telus is working with the provincial government to extend cellular service along Highway 6 as a way of improving safety for motorists. “For anyone who gets stuck on the road or needs an ambulance or police, this will help,” said Foisy. Foisy also believes a cellular network will help attract small businesses to Cherryville because some entrepreneurs need constant access with customers. Along with cell service, the tower would provide

“It’s something the community really wants.” — Eugene Foisy

Cherryville with high-speed Internet access. The tower would be 70-feet in height, with a 7.9-square-metre shelter at the base. The service could be operational by November. “The purpose of this proposed antenna system is to provide coverage to the area that is currently unavailable as a result of no other telecommunication structure within the coverage area,” said Phil Barker, Telus real estate specialist. “Additionally, there are no other carriers with towers in the area that would provide opportunities to co-locate. This tower will provide coverage for Telus and the opportunity for other carriers’ cellular equipment in the future.”

UBC bus route scaled back RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Transit service between Vernon and Kelowna is being trimmed for the summer. The Regional District of North Okanagan board has decided to reduce the number of transit trips to the University of B.C. from 10 to four a day from April 29 to Aug. 30. Patrick Nicol “We agreed some time ago

that to increase the service (in the winter), we need to make this adjustment financially in the summer,” said chairperson Patrick Nicol. By having fewer trips when UBC classes are not in session, RDNO has enough money to provide additional runs when the campus is operating. Over the years, there have been complaints that the bus route is over-capacity and students are left standing on the side of the road and unable to get to classes. The scheduled departure times from Vernon Monday to Friday, from April 29 to Aug. 30, will be 7 a.m., 8 a.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.

As such, his continued support is vital in assisting the efforts of the society to assist developmentally disabled individuals. “It doesn’t work without you guys,” said Garry Molitwenik, NOCLS executive director. Rolke adds: “The people that come and support the event, they’re critical.” The tourney, which includes a caddy auction, barbecue and putting contest May 2, draws upwards of 145 golfers. “It’s a fundraiser, but it’s also a very fun event,” said Weatherill. The money raised helps NOCLS move clients out of group home situations and into individual living spaces. “The goal with the funds we’re raising is to get people out into the community,” said Molitwenik.

The nominees for Woman of the Year 2013 come from a variety of backgrounds but they have one thing in common — their dedication to making the community a better place. The 11 nominees, put forward by community members, and their nominators were introduced at a Vernon Women in Business reception Wednesday evening at City Furniture, one of the sponsors of the program, which is in its 26th year. They are Ann Cotton, Ruth Hoyte, Deb Leroux, Trudy McGrath, Melina Moore, Dalvir Nahal, Claire Radford, Ryan Robson, Dawn Roy, Linda Wills and Linda Wilson. “We are delighted with the number of nominees this year. They represent a broad range,” said Colleen Barker, Woman of the Year event chairperson. “They are not all business women — they are women who have made important contributions to the community in so many ways. We want to honour all these women. We thank all our sponsors for helping this grow to be a prestigious event in Vernon.” The nominees and their nominators will enjoy several pre-events before the Woman of the Year gala at the Prestige Hotel May 9.

Colleen Barker announces the 11 nominees for the Woman of the Year honour during a reception at City Furniture Wednesday. Business. “I love recognizing these women. We have so many amazing women in our community,” said Angela Yablonski, who is organizing the pre-events which will include a zumba evening at Curves, pampering by Mary Kay and time at the Equine Connection with Wendy Elrick. “Sometimes the nominees don’t all know each other even though they have been active in the community for years. This is a chance for them to have fun and for us to show that we appreciate each one of them.” Mary Williamson, Woman of the Year 2012, looked back on her year. She continued her volunteer work and is now in her 52nd year of nursing.

“It’s been fabulous. It’s such an honour that I’m still humbled by the thought. The nominators have done a lot of work. I congratulate all the nominees. You are all winners.” Vernon Women in Business president Krista Harris had some words of advice for the nominees. “Be aware of how much love you are getting here. You have all done a ton of things for our community. This is what people have want-

ed to tell you all these years — how much you mean to everyone,” she said. This year’s gala event where the Woman of the Year 2013 is announced takes on what Barker calls an academy awards style with a wine and cheese reception to start. Then the nominees will be introduced and the Woman of the Year announced with an after party to follow. Tickets are available at www.vwib.com.

Another deadline passes

W

ell, Roberto Luongo and I dodged another trading deadline. In actual fact I don’t think I can be traded (although I sometimes have nightmares where I get traded for, well, very little, and to someplace I’ve never been or never wanted to go to), and Luongo didn’t dodge the trade deadline so much as not get what he wanted: that is, to be traded. Apparently the Leafs and the Canucks were close, but Luongo’s contract (which “sucks” apparently) was likely the stumbling block, although I’m pretty sure if anybody can afford him it’s the Leafs and if he actually helped get them into the playoffs and all the money that would bring in, methinks it might have been worth it. If they don’t make the playoffs for some reason, critics (i.e. Leaf fans) will definitely point at the trade that wasn’t as one reason, whether it really was or not cause that’s Glenn Mitchell what hockey fans do. Oh well, it was not to be and the Canucks will just have to move forward with two very well-paid star goalies and the Leafs hopefully will creep into the playoffs with two cheaper, not-yet-star goalies. However, that’s the thing about goalies – they can go from great to not-so-great (and the other way around) in fan’s eyes pretty quickly. So, we’ll see. And often the best trade you make turns out to be the one you didn’t make, if you know what I mean. It’s curious that the biggest news on trade day was a couple deals, Luongo and Miikka Kiprusoff, that didn’t take place. So much for filling 10 hours of television coverage........ .......and speaking of trades. Jay Leno is being replaced by Jimmy Fallon next year on NBC’s Tonight show. It sounds like the 11:30 show is moving to New York as well. Now I’m a Leno fan, I once saw him at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver and he was great and his ratings are still solid and, I

believe, he’s No. 1 in his time slot. However, he is getting older, aren’t we all, and some new, younger blood might be the way to go. Fallon is funny in his 12:30 slot (I like Thank You notes and stuff like that but sometimes he relies on skits or games a little too much for my liking) and they’re probably trying to keep in step with the relatively young Jimmy Kimmel moving to 11:30 on ABC. Plus Canadian Lorne Michaels, of Saturday Night Live fame, is going to take over as executive producer of the Tonight show, so he and SNL alumni Fallon should add an edge to the show and be attractive for younger audiences. Of course all this puts pressure on once thought to be heir to the Tonight show, David Letterman, over at CBS. He’s not getting any younger, either, although I think he’s still great, too, but then again I’m not exactly young anymore either. I also realize that I can never have Jay and Dave over for supper together, but I don’t think that’s ever going to be a problem, quite frankly. Anyway, we’ll see how it all plays out, and I’ll be watching, although I’ll likely be watching the Eastern stations at 8:30 p.m. because I can’t actually stay up for late-night TV anymore. Which, of course, tells you something about whether late-night TV producers should be worrying about attracting my age group or not, heavy sigh..... .......sad to see movie critic Roger Ebert move on to the balcony seat in the sky this past week. I used to watch his show back when he and fellow critic Gene Siskel would bicker over whether a show got a good rating or not, and more often than not I agreed with Ebert. He later lost portions of his jaw to cancer and couldn’t speak but overcame these obstacles to get back to writing and eventually TV as well. “You play the cards you’re dealt,” he wrote according to an Associated Press story. What’s your choice? I have no pain. I enjoy life, and why should I complain.” Thumbs-up for that piece of advice.

Politicians on all sides are busy campaigning for the May 14 election. Meanwhile, over in Victoria, at least one office hasn’t turned out the lights while waiting for voters’ decision. The office of the auditor general, which until late May is under the auspices of outgoing auditor-general John Doyle, is working harder than ever to let B.C. residents know how well or poorly government agencies have been spending their tax dollars. In recent weeks, Doyle has issued reports on carbon credits, governance of school districts, the air ambulance service and financial management within the Legislature. His office has also done a follow-up report, looking at a number of past audits and seeing how various organizations are doing in meeting auditorgeneral recommendations. Doyle’s office is doing so much right now because he wants to have outstanding matters cleared off his desk, as he returns to his native Australia. However, his look at so many areas of government spending is commendable, for it highlights a very important part of governance that is frequently ignored by politicians, commentators and the public. Politicians promise new programs, and certain groups and individuals apply pressure for these programs. But when they are put in place, is the money used to run them spent wisely? We all pay a lot of taxes. Many of the programs which government runs are reasonably efficient, but others are not, and there is insufficient accountability in the spending of tax dollars. Thankfully, the auditorgeneral is still asking hard questions, checking over the books and issuing tough and controversial reports. — Langley Times

Refinery project makes sense

ith the Kitimat refinery project, I first heard of this concept from David Black (Morning Star owner) a number of years ago. At the time, I was skeptical of its chances. My initially negative attitude was based mainly on my experience of 10 years service on the board of directors of Imperial Oil. Since I was accustomed to the discussion of petroleum economics centered in Calgary, I saw no need for a refinery in Kitimat. That attitude was based on the fact that there had not been a new refinery built in North America in many years. And any needed increase in petroleum production was achieved by expansion of existing refineries throughout North America. But after my service with Imperial Oil, I went on to serve four years at Canfor which led to my nine visits to China in search of lumber markets. My exposure to the phenomenal expansion of China's economy opened my eyes to the true merit of the Kitimat refinery concept. It made me realize that it would not be just another refinery relying

on the North America market but rather a refinery that would supply the vast appetite of China for petroleum products. The challenge will be to draw the attention of Asian investors who would see the value to this investment. It appears that David Black, after many years of effort, is nearing an agreement that could provide the vast capital infusion needed to make this refinery initiative a reality. The appetite for oil products for all of Asia will continue to grow and the Kitimat refinery is ideally situated to take advantage. Asian countries, especially China, are very interested in securing sustainable supply of resources that will flow freely without undue trade barriers like surprises with taxes, regulations or tariffs. Canada has a good reputation as a free trade country that can be relied on as a dependable source of supply. Now is a very opportune time to attract the vast investment needed to make the Kitimat refinery go ahead. David Black, with his years of diligence, deserves our appreciation for displaying the foresight and

Yes to amalgamation Regarding the amalgamation of local communities, I agree with Brandon Lee's letter in The Morning Star entitled, "Put it to a vote." I also agree with Ed Proteau, a Coldstream resident, who believes amalgamation would cut cost of operations, eliminate duplication and improve efficiency. We spent many years living and working, raising our family in the City of Vernon, after which we retired, with 32 years of residency in the BX area. We love it here. If we amalgamate, our taxes will go up. There are no city services that we require. The roads, water and all services are adequate and well maintained. So why am I for amalgamation? For more than 45 years, I have been listening, reading and watching the controversy between our three main governing bodies: Vernon, Coldstream and the regional district. Each of them trying to protect their own

courage to invest his time, money and reputation to help bring along this huge initiative. The positive merits of the Kitimat refinery are so profound that this project is really beyond any political persuasion. Any and all supporters of the NDP, Liberals, Conservatives or even Greens should see the tremendous benefits that would come to B.C. with this project. This initiative will involve the

turf, while expanding their mini-empires to the detriment of the taxpayers. I believe this has cost taxpayers dearly. Endless meetings held, solving very little all at the taxpayers' expense. With amalgamation, a ward system could be set up with representatives from all areas according to population numbers. Some of the questions on mind are: Why did the City of Vernon close the Okanagan Landing volunteer fire service? Where will Okanagan College expand in the future if a sports complex is built next to it? What will taxes look like for our children and grandchildren if we continue this inefficiency and are over-governed? In a world where people and communities are coming together, why is this community choosing to stay apart? michael detourdonnet thank You The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Auxiliary

investment of many billions of dollars. That's for sure. It's hard for any of us to visualize a million let alone a billion of any thing. So let's look at the on the ground facts of such an undertaking for all of us in B.C. Let's start with the big picture. When it comes to the benefits of a petroleum cycle from well exploration to the gas station, the jurisdiction that hosts the refining process enjoys a huge portion of the value addition to the raw material. That would mean several thousand, mostly trade union jobs for the multi-year term of the construction phase. It would also mean the creation of more than 3,000 permanent jobs for the operation and supply support of the refinery when running. This refinery would be processing 175 million barrels per year which means the tax revenue that could go toward health care, education, vital services for the disabled and elderly would be immense. It also would provide much lower risk to the marine environment. The shipments out of the refinery would be finished product like

aviation fuel, gasoline and diesel These products, if ever spilled, would have much less impact on the marine environment. They would also be transported in smaller ships. I know there are those on both sides of the political aisle that address this as a political issue. And I would disagree with both. This is a project that can be attractive to all political stripes. Trade unions would see a significant increase in jobs and memberships. Hospitals and schools across the province would see an improvement in government funding. Business activity especially in the challenged northwest B.C. would be very positively impacted. And those with a concern for the threat of marine spills would see a significantly reduced exposure for the environment. Based on the huge positive impact this initiative could have on B.C., I think the question should not be if we want it, but rather, how can we help make sure that the petroleum world sees this as an attractive way to invest billions of shareholder capital.

Gun range sets sights near Lumby RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Support for a private shooting range is on target in rural Lumby. The Electoral Area Advisory Committee wants to send a non-farm application to the Agricultural Land Commission for a gun range at the five-kilometre mark on Burnyeat Forest Service Road in Trinity Valley. “There is also a lot of support from the agricultural committee and the advisory planning commission,” said Rick Fairbairn, Rick Fairbairn rural Lumby director. “There is a need for this type of facility.” A local resident is proposing to use 1.48 hectares of a 129-hectare site for a private shooting range which would include a parking area and shooting building. The shooting range is proposed to measure 938-metres-by15-metres. “We have numerous hunters who need a place to sight rifles instead of ad hoc out in the (forested) area,” said Fairbairn, add-

ing that such a facility would improve safety for firearm users and the public. “It’s isolated. If all of the safety precautions come into play and the issues of noise and traffic are addressed, it will be an isolated spot.” Portions of the land to the west and northwest are in the Agricultural Land Reserve so approval must be sought from the ALC for a non-farm use. “It is able to support agriculture and has historically been used for range land,” said Jennifer deGroot, Regional District of North Okanagan planning assistant, in a report to the EAAC. “Approval of the application could set a precedent that would lead property owners to believe that agricultural parcels within the regional district can be used for non-agricultural purposes.” Staff had recommended to EAAC directors that the application not be forwarded to the ALC. However, directors opted to send the proposal to the RDNO board to consider if it should go to the ALC. “It’s only about half-an-acre in the reserve and removing it won’t affect the quality of the rest of the agricultural land (in the ALR,” said Fairbairn. If the ALC approves a non-farm use, the property owner will then have to pursue rezoning from RDNO.

In 1946, Kermode, who died in 2001, visited the Peters Lake area of the Monashee Mountains. “As a professional photographer, he was so taken by the beauty of the area, that the idea came to him that this area should be preserved as a park,” said Ernie Laviolette, Cherryville Historical Society president. “For 14 years, he brought together various committees that tirelessly lobbied forestry and parks officials towards the eventual creation of a park in the area. On June 1, 1962, Doug Kermode the area around Peters Lake was designated as Monashee Provincial Park.” Wanting to have a lake named after Kermode was first discussed during the park’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2012. “We realized that much is owed to this man who dedicated so much of his life to the park,” said Laviolette. Kermode, who was born in Vernon in 1913, captured the history of the North Okanagan through 1,500 photographs, which are part of the Greater Vernon Museum. “It’s an amazing collection that he provided us,” said Ron Candy, museum curator. Kermode was an honorary member of the Professional Photographers Association of B.C. The Regional District of North Okanagan has been asked to provide a letter of support to have the lake named for Kermode.

Township fine with referendum ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Spallumcheen council thinks a referendum either through taxation or borrowing money to pay for an expansion at the Armstrong Spallumcheen Fire Hall is a good idea. And they thought the City of Armstrong felt that way, as well. Township council voted unanimously Tuesday on a motion put forward at a joint council meeting stating that capital improvements to the joint fire hall be deferred to 2014 “pending consideration being given to fund capital improvements by long-term Todd York debt as authorized by a referendum.” Armstrong council unanimously defeated the same motion at its last regular meeting (though Coun. Paul Britton was absent), but did agree to defer the matter to 2014. “At the joint council meeting, I thought we left it unanimous that it would be through referendum,” said Spallumcheen Coun. Joe Van Tienhoven. “When (Armstrong) Mayor (Chris) Pieper brought this up at joint council meeting, I thought it was a really good idea,” added Spall Coun. Christine Fraser. “He started off the conversation on the fire hall talking about doing a referendum and all of the reasons he thought it was a good idea. “I think it’s a good idea too, and we must make sure we’re doing what’s best for both communities looking down the road because Armstrong and

Spallumcheen’s needs are not always the same.” Pieper said his council discussed the motion, stating the reason you go to referendum is to borrow the money. Armstrong, he said, has the money to pay for its share of an entire expansion to the fire hall and wants to get it done. “Council said if we don’t want to go to referendum, we won’t but if they did, we would probably go to referendum,” said Pieper. The city has said it wants to do a full renovation, which includes expanding bays and renovations inside the fire hall. The township said it supports the expansion, but wanted to see if grant funding could be used to pay for other renovations. Both municipalities were unsuccessful in getting grant money for the project. Spallumcheen Coun. Todd York said the words “pending consideration” were key. “I think we’re going to find, in the long run, it’s probably wise to do it (expansion) all at once, but I’m certainly not willing to decide at this point whether it should be through taxation or referendum,” said York. “We still have nothing more than a really pretty drawing on the table with no real numbers attached to it. “We need to know that.” According to York, he said figures for the expansion have jumped from an original estimated starting point of $1.2 million to $1.6 million. “Which leads me to believe, by the time the nails finish hitting the wood, we’re probably looking at closer to $1.8 million,” he said. York added that the motion that the township passed Tuesday still works, only they can’t answer how the expansion will be paid for. “We still don’t have the answers yet,” said York.

Home sales still ‘fairly flat’

Morning Star Staff

Real estate activity in the North Okanagan continues to experience challenges. There were 108 units sold overall in March, down 13.6 per cent from 125 during the same month in 2012. “During March, sales in our board area mirrored activity in most housing markets in the province, remaining fairly flat as reticent buyers continue to be influenced by tighter credit rules affecting affordability, and thereby, reducing the rate of consumer demand,” said Karen Singbeil, Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board president. “The market slowdown from late 2012 carried over into the first quarter of 2013 as buyers and sellers continue to sit on the fence, and take a wait and see approach.” Total residential sales in the North Okanagan slipped from 114 to 97 units, or 14.9 per cent. Single-family home sales were down 21.2 per cent, from 66 to 52. Year-to-date, sales were down 17.4% compared to the first quarter of 2012 (to 237 from 287).

A r m s t r o n g Spallumcheen Parks and Recreation has announced that stronger sales projections for April will result in the ice at the Nor-Val Sports Centre staying in longer. “They ran the ice a little longer this year and they’re now thinking of doing that again next season,” said Spallumcheen Coun. Joe Van Tienhoven,a township representative to the Armstrong Spallumcheen Parks and Recreation board. “They had the ice booked up and did quite well because of that. It’s proven to be a good plan to keep the ice in longer.” Of course, keeping

the ice in longer was helped along by the run of the KIJHL’s North Okanagan Knights to the league final. The target for ice sales in April was projected to be $4,361 but actual figures showed the number at $6,848. With a new boiler ready to be installed, parks and recreation is hoping for an early opening for the pool, which usually opens on the May long weekend. “The new boiler should keep people coming in,” said Van Tienhoven.

sons why Armstrong Spallumcheen Parks and Recreation has enjoyed a successful season. The Hassen Arena

has been utilized by the always-popular public roller skating, roller derby, drop-in lacrosse over the winter and zumba classes. An indoor skateboard park set up in one of the barns at the Interior Provincial Exhibition has been torn down, but not before it became well utilized over the winter by board enthusiasts.

Horticultural and cattle buildings are rented weekly at the IPE. “Parks and recreation is very proactive in trying to get all of our facilities used,” said Van Tienhoven. “Most parks and recreation departments don’t have as many diverse buildings as we do. We have quite an opportunity to rent out things.”

Chris Kinakin’s tired of the same-old thing when it comes to B.C. politics, so he’s decided to jump into the fray as a candidate and create an entirely new political party. To be dubbed the Working People’s

Party, Kinakin is currently soliciting the 75 nominating signatures required to become a candidate for the Shuswap riding in the May 14 provincial election. “I’ve got the 250 bucks to pay for the registration, but I need those signatures to get me on the ballot,” hesaid. “I don’t like the Libs, the PCs or the NDP’ers. “In my mind a vote for them’s just switching horse thieves. What we need in this riding is an independent, someone who is for the business, for the working people,” says the semi-retired longhaul truck driver who has lived in various

Shuswap. “I came here to pick cherries with nothing more than a pair of socks and a pension cheque and I’ve stayed ever since.” Environmental issues are part of Kinakin’s platform. He has previously voted for the Green Party, and calls for air care programs, support for bicycle paths and electric hybrid vehicles. He also rejects pipeline projects, saying tax dollars would be wasted, as demand for oil will drop as alternative sources of energy are used. Kinakin wants to bring the focus back

to working people with higher minimum wages and better benefits. “I’ve been a working man all my life and now so many have lost jobs. We need to get those people back to work.” He also supports reforms for those on social assistance programs. “You try to live on $600 a month when the only places you can find to rent are $800 a month. That’s what it’s like out there.” Anyone interested in supporting Kinakin’s quest to get his name on the ballot can contact him via email at kinc4n@yahoo.com.

A world champion hockey player wants to bring more awareness to amputees playing the game. Vernon’s Curt Minard, 33, helped Canada win its sixth consecutive world amputee hockey championship in 2012 in Finland. Minard, in February, was named the Western Canadian coordinator the Canadian Amputee Hockey Committee, and one of his first efforts is to put on a Western Canadian hockey camp for amputees. The camp runs April 12 to 14 at Vernon’s Priest Valley Arena, featuring up to 20 players from across Western Canada. “My goal, and our organization’s goal, is to put disability on the ice and provide an atmosphere for amputees to come out and enjoy the game,” said Minard, who lost his left hand at the wrist in 2008 in a workrelated accident near Invermere. “I decided I really wanted to put something together in the west this year and shed some light and get some young kids out to the camp.” Running the camp will be Team Canada head coach Jamie McGuire of Toronto with help from Vernon’s Dean McAmmond, a former NHL star who has helped Minard with his own hockey training. “Dean worked quite a bit with me last year, he’s an outstanding guy,” said Minard. The camp is an open camp for all amputees of any age and skill level. The players will hit the ice for their first workout on Friday, April 12, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. That will be followed with an early-morning workout Saturday, April 13, from 7:15 to 8:45, and there will be a scrimmage against the Armstrong Safe Hockey League’s men’s division playoff runner-ups, the Jayhawks, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The camp ends Sunday with a workout from 1:15 to 2:45 p.m. Attendees will unveil the new Western Canadian Amputee Hockey Committee jer-

seys at the camp. Two teenage goalies from northern B.C. and northern Alberta will be at the camp, as will one national team goalie and five or six of Minard’s national squad teammates. “We want to get these kids involved and keep them interested so, hopefully, one day, they end up on the national team themselves or at least stay in the game and the program,” said Minard. All activities are open to the public free of charge. “My personal goal for this camp is to give some public attention to it,” said Minard, who hopes to entice hockey-loving amputees from the Okanagan to the camp. As of this week, nobody from the Okanagan had signed up. Anybody interested can contact Minard at cminard@live.ca. The camp is free. Out-of-town players must pay for their accommodations.

Students plan for trip abroad Morning Star Staff

After the last two successful spring break trips to Italy and Greece, and cruising the Greek Islands, Pleasant Valley Secondary School is going back to the traditional European field trip for spring break 2014. Career programs co-ordinator Paul Britton met recently with students to discuss the planned trip. Approximately 50 students showed up to hear about the Ireland, Scotland, England and France trip which goes under the title, The Capitals of the British Isles. “Pleasant Valley Secondary has never travelled to Ireland or Scotland so there is great excitement amongst the students to actually be in Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day and be part of that country’s celebration,” said Britton. The trip will be facilitated by a company Britton is familiar with. “We use EF Educational Tours for the trips for many reasons but most importantly for peace of mind,” he said. “EF has been in business for more than 45 years and has offices around the world. I enjoy working with EF tours because you have a full-time local tour director that makes sure every-

thing runs smoothly.” The trip is open to all North Okanagan-Shuswap and Vernon school district students, Grades 9 to 12, and can be checked on-line at eftours.ca under the Tour number 1336088. “Our last trip was a great success with students from PVSS, AL Fortune and Seaton Secondary participating,” said Britton. “The reason to get started planning so soon is that EF Tours allows parent and students to sign up early and book a spot, as well as making monthly payments to help ease the costs.” Any interested students and parents can come to the next meeting Wednesday at the PVSS library at 6 p.m., or contact Britton at PVSS, 250- 546-3114 ext 206, for more details.

“Funds raised throughout the month help the Canadian Cancer Society prevent cancer, fund vital research, empower, inform and support Canadians living with cancer and advocate for public policies to improve the health of all Canadians,” said Erin Nesci, Prospera manager of community and public relations. In recognition of the campaign, April 27 has been designated National Daffodil Day in Canada. “The society is also asking people across the country to wear a daffodil pin throughout the month to support those living with and fighting cancer,” said Nesci. For 75 years the Canadian Cancer Society has been on the front lines in the battle against cancer. An important part of the work they do involves advocating for public policies that make healthy choices easier for everyone, help protect people from cancer-causing substances and make life better for those living with cancer. Other Canadian Cancer Society programs include: n The Smokers’ Helpline, which is a free, confidential service for smokers who want to quit, are thinking about quitting or have stopped smoking and need support. n The Cancer Information Service provides answers to questions about all types of cancer, diagnostic tests, treatments, side effects, clinical trials and many other cancer-related topics. n A peer support service that connects people living with cancer and caregivers with trained volunteers who offer encouragement and share ideas for coping – all from their unique perspective as someone who’s been there. n The society’s online community, CancerConnection.ca, which helps people who have cancer, cancer survivors and caregivers share their experiences and build supportive relationships.

Farynuk staying sharp for Blades Kevin Mitchell Sports Editor

With a double engineering degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Brad Farynuk is well prepared for the job market. Hockey, however, is keeping the Enderby product from joining the work force full time. Farynuk, a 31-year-old former Edmonton Oilers farmhand, just helped the Tohoku Free Blades shock the topranked OJI Eagles in the Asian Ice Hockey League playoff championship series. He and his wife, Kathy, leave next week to Australia to sightsee and visit Brad’s aunt, a trip postponed in 2011 due to the Tohoka earthquake/tsunami the Farynuks witnessed first-hand. After a season in Italy last year and a few seasons of minor-pro, Farynuk has experienced a few different hockey cultures and he’s in no hurry to give up the game. — Brad “I’m going to take a month or so to assess my life ambitions and hockey,” he told The Morning Star. “I plan on working at AMS Solutions when I get back, an automation engineering company in Enderby headed by ex-Viper/North Okanagan King Richard Vetter and electrical engineers Roland Davyduke and Ron Pobuda. “AMS has projects all over North America and many with Tolko. I have played professionally seven years now so I’m preparing myself for the transition to an engineering career. The only problem with the idea of retiring is that I love hockey so much. Once I’m back and see what hockey offers are available to me, I’ll weigh out my career options.”

Farynuk, a defencemen, racked up 105 points in 135 games with the BCHL Vernon Vipers from 1999-2002, getting 19 goals and 59 points his final season. He racked up 79 points in four years at RPI in Troy, N.Y. In the best-of-five Asian finals, Farynuk scored both goals in Game 2 as the Free Blades bounced the Eagles 2-1 in overtime after losing the opener in OT. He finished with 5-7-12 in eight playoff tilts, earning three game winners. Farynuk pocketed 16 goals and 43 points in the regular season, where the Blades lost 13 games and finished second behind the Eagles, who lost just twice in regulation. He made the first all-star team while missing just four games with a tricep tear. “My dee partner’s name is Kyohei Kikuchi and is a very steady, hard-working defensive player so I can play very offensive,” said Farynuk, a 6-foot, 210-pounder who wears No. 44. “He speaks very little English but we both understand each other when commuFarynuk nicating on the ice, using a mix of Japanese and English hockey terms. “We had a very hard in-season training program that wore on us bigger players just trying to keep up with our speedy Japanese teammates who never stop working.

Farynuk goes to a computer to keep track of what’s happening in the NHL. “Part of being a pro hockey player is constantly trying to be better everyday and learn from what the best are doing. I watch the highlights on TSN.ca almost daily and I can usually watch the third period of Canucks games when I get home from our daily workouts/practices. It’s tough with the time change here as our mornings are when games are on so pubs/restaurants don’t cover much.” Farynuk is impressed at how Japan has moved forward since the major carnage of 2011. Close to 16,000 people were killed and 129,000 buildings were knocked down. The World Bank’s estimated economic cost was US$235 billion, making it the costliest natural disaster in world history. “The Japanese are a resilient people,” said Farynuk, who rushed out of an arena, with his skates on, to avoid being hurt in the earthquake. “The way the people handled the tsunami and quake was phenomenal. It isn’t in the Japanese culture and discipline to panic or overreact – even in sport. “I couldn’t believe how calm people remained during the catastrophe, and have held such demeanor and strength through their rebuilding of the Tohoku coast. There are obviously many people who lost family members and their homes, which was so upsetting, but if there is any country in the world that could rebound from that, it is Japan. The clean-up jobs near cities like Sendai have been tremendous but the rebuilding process will be slow especially with the economic recession here as well.” Catching up with family and friends, and doing some fishing, are also on his offseason menu.

Smithson’s roller-coaster week

J

erred Smithson woke up Wednesday morning in Sunrise, Fla. as a Florida Panther and smiled at his very pregnant fiancée Jaymie Hackman. Jerred woke up Thursday a member of the Edmonton Oilers and an expectant father. Jaymie was scheduled to be induced around dinner time in Florida and deliver the couple’s first son. They named the sixpound, nine-ounce Kevin Mitchell winger Hunter. Not sure what was wrong with my suggestion: Kevin Eberle Hall Smithson. Jerred will wake up today in Los Angeles, where he is scheduled to make his Oiler debut Monday night against the Anaheim Ducks.

It’s the fourth NHL team for the Vernon minor hockey grad. This will be his most stressful move after living in L.A., and Nashville in the show, and minor-league cities Lowell, Mass., Manchester, N.H. and Milwaukee after five years of Major Junior with the Calgary Hitmen. Many fans assume pro athletes, after a trade, just stuff a few suits and a pair of Armani shoes in a Nike bag, grab an electric toothbrush and settle into their new place. Smithson said his head was spinning big time after learning he was an Oiler. Every day away from his precious new son is a day he can’t get back. Sure, he makes $800,000 a year, but you can’t put a price on a newborn child. And as Smithson starts work on a new chapter in his life, so does former Vernon Viper leading scorer Mike Santorelli, another Panther who was leaving on a jet plane. On the same day Smithson was dealt, Santorelli, who billeted with Ariel Tyk’s family in Vernon, was plucked off the waiver wire by the “Let us give you something to smile about...” Winnipeg Jets. Santorelli, of Vancouver, has followed Smithson from Milwaukee to Nashville and Florida, with a short stint in San Antonio, Tex. in between. This is also his fourth NHL team. And then there’s Aaron Gagnon, the pride of Armstrong. Dr. Sean Bicknell and Dr. Karl Denk are pleased to In case you forgot about the onewelcome Dr. Isabelle Henri to the practice.

Armstrong’s Aaron Gagnon, a forward with the St. John’s IceCaps, was named the American Hockey League’s Player of the Month for March. Gagnon’s stellar play has earned him a call-up with the Winnipeg Jets. Dallas Stars and Jets. He has played 29 NHL games, including one with Winnipeg this season, and has two career assists. Gagnon, who returned to the St. John’s lineup on Feb. 10 after missing six weeks due to injury, hit his stride in March, recording a point in all 11 games he played – totaling nine goals and nine assists. After recording Smithson single points in each of his first three games in March, Gagnon recorded his first two-goal game of the season in a 4-2 loss to Syracuse on the ninth. He had 1+1 in a 5-0 win over Hamilton six nights later and tied a career high with three assists in a 4-3 victory at Manchester on the 24th. Gagnon scored twice, including his third game-winning goal of the month, to help the IceCaps past Albany, 4-2, on March 27, and finished the month with 1+1 in a come-from-behind 5-4 overtime win at Worcester on the 30th.

Armstrong super hockey fan Sharon Bain steered me to a YouTube post with Gagnon being interview by Caps’ play-byplay man Brian Rogers. Said Gagnon: “I feel great. It’s just one of those things. It’s a funny game how it works. At the start of the season, I couldn’t get anything going and once I found my game, things have been bouncing my way.” Gagnon posted three winning goals, three on the powerplay and two shorthanded. The Caps were second-to-last in the 16-team Eastern Division on Friday afternoon. They will miss the playoffs. Among Gagnon’s teammates in Newfoundland are Nanaimo Clipper grad Raymond Sawada and ex-Red Wing/Jet Derek Meech. In recognition of his achievement, Gagnon was supposed to be presented with an etched crystal award prior to the IceCaps home game Friday night against the Toronto Marlies. He was still with the Jets so that ceremony was postponed. Gagnon has racked up 74 goals and 172 points in 328 career AHL games over six seasons, and reached the Calder Cup finals with the Texas Stars in 2010.

Vees return to Fred Page final Morning Star Staff

The Penticton Vees will continue their Fred Page Cup title defence as they visit the Surrey Eagles for Game 1 of the B.C. Hockey League final Friday at South Surrey Arena. Fred Harbinson’s Vees eliminated the West Kelowna Warriors with a 2-1 overtime win in Game 5 of the Interior final Thursday night at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

Surrey, featuring former Vernon Viper Adam Tambellini, swept the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in the best-of-seven Coastal final. Tambellini, who was dealt from Vernon to Surrey at the carding deadline, leads the postseason goal scoring with nine snipes. He is third in points (9-313 in 11 games) behind Eagle teammates Brady Shaw (6-10-16) and Michael Stenerson (6-8-14). Meanwhile, Curtis Lazar’s

Edmonton Oil Kings opened the WHL Eastern Conference semifinal with a 4-1 win over Cole Sandford’s Medicine Hat Tigers Friday night at Rexall Place. Brady Brassart’s Calgary Hitmen are up 2-0 on the Red Deer Rebels in the other Eastern semi. The Kelowna Rockets hosted the Kamloops Blazers in Game 1 of their Western semi Saturday. Game 2 goes tonight (5:05) at Prospera Place.

Pospisil falls in Davis opener Tennis Canada/Morning Star Staff

Team Canada was tied 1-1 with Italy after the first day of play in their Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group quarterfinal tie Friday at UBC’s Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre in Vancouver. Both nation’s No. 1 players captured their matches, as Vernon’s Vasek Pospisil fell to world No. 18 Andreas Seppi 5-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3, with world No. 16 Milos Raonic (Thornhill, Ont.) then squaring things up with a 6-4, 7-6(4), 7-5 victory over Fabio Fognini. Pospisil, ranked 140th and now based in Vancouver, fought hard to push Seppi to five sets. After being broken in the very first game, he turned it around to take the first two sets. Seppi’s play improved as the match went on, and the three-time ATP World Tour titlist rallied to give Italy the lead. “In the third set he stepped up for sure,” Pospisil told Vasek Pospisil Tennis Canada. “Right from the first game, he played great, I couldn’t really do much. “He put more first serves in the beginning, he played very aggressive; more aggressive than the last time I played him and the first two sets. The fourth set maybe a little bit in the beginning I kind of had a little metal lapse in concentration where it was important for me to raise the intensity, so those twothree games at the beginning of the fourth maybe cost me that set, but other than that he played very well.” Raonic clinched his match in part due to the strength of his serve, as the 22-year-old only faced two break points through the match. After falling behind 2-1, Raonic immediately rebounded by taking the next game. He then broke again at the 6-5 mark to take the match. In total, Raonic went three for 15 on break point opportunities. “It was good. I played within myself; I felt I was able to control it most of the time,” said Raonic. “I felt that most of the time I was putting it in my terms, that we were playing under ‘Milos can decide which way this goes.’ I did slip up a little bit but I turned that around and I’m proud with how I managed it.” Canada is playing in the Davis Cup quarterfinals for the first time in its history following a 3-2 firstround victory over No. 1-ranked Spain in February. The winner of this tie will move into September’s semifinals. Both teams have already secured their places in the 2014 World Group. Pospisil was expected to team up with veteran Daniel Nestor to face Daniele Bracciali and Paolo Lorenzi in doubles action Saturday. Nestor is the world No. 6 in doubles, while Pospisil is 308th. The tie concludes today, 2 p.m. PT, with the two reverse singles matches, which will be broadcast on Sportsnet and TVA Sports.

Haubrich soaring Morning Star Staff

Officially, Rhett Haubrich is on shortterm injured reserve. Luckily, he was totally healthy for his last competition of the snowboard season, the $10,000 Sport Chek Snow Crown Freestyle Nationals at Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park. He’s in no rush to get on the active list. “I hurt my ankle playing around doing some jumps up at Silver Star so I’ll be out for a week or two,” laughed Haubrich, a Vernon 20-year-old with — Rhett five years of boarding competition experience. Haubrich posted a top-25 at the FIS World Junior Championships in Erzurum, Turkey, so pre qualified for the Junior and Open division semifinals at nationals. His execution on one of the slopestyle jumps was less than what he is accustomed to, and placed him seventh in the Junior class, ruled by Michel Gregoire of Quebec. Tanner Holland of Kelowna, who like Haubrich, trains at Whistler, bagged

the bronze medal. Haubrich put together a near-perfect run (89.50 points) in the Open to place third overall and pocket $750. Darcy Sharpe of Team Canada (Comox) won the Open crown with a 96.00, followed by Tyler Nicholson of North Bay, Ont., at 95.5. Nicholson, who trains in Colorado, landed a massive switch back 1200 for the Most Outstanding Trick award. “I was just boarding well and landed my run with three jumps and a rail. I Haubrich was happy for sure,” said the modest, soft-spoken Haubrich. “The money will sure help me out.” In Turkey, where Nicholson struck gold in the slopestyle, Haubrich registered a first-rate run but unfortunately, a slight stumble on the rail left him 21st in the field of 50. His coaches figured he would have been top-five without the slip. Haubrich shares a place with two friends at Whistler and works summers.

“I was boarding well and landing my run.”

Silver Star water rates go up Morning Star Staff

It’s going to cost more to use water at Silver Star. The Regional District of North Okanagan has increased rates by 3.2 per cent, which is about $10 per year for the average residential user. “This increase is to compensate for an increase in the Silver Star operating budget and decrease revenues from the past two years,” said James de Pfyffer, small utilities manager.

RDNO has also adopted a small utilities rates imposition bylaw. The bylaw consolidates the following utilities into one structure: Grindrod water, Gunter Ellison Road water, Mabel Lake water, Mabel Lake sewer and Whitevale water. “It provides standardized definitions, standardized rates and fees for similar services and reduces administration costs,” said de Pfyffer.

Tax News

from Dean Chapple at H&R Block Many self-employed people use their vehicle for work related purposes and some of the cost of using and maintaining the vehicle may be deductible. Firstly, travel to and from your place of self employment is NOT deductible. Secondly, CRA requires that you keep a logbook of total distance traveled and distances traveled for business purposes. The percentage of distance for business is then used to apportion fuel, insurance, repair expenses etc. to the business statement. The percentage of business use must be reasonable compared to the type of selfemployment. For example; a realtor will use his or her vehicle far more than a person who operates a daycare business from their home.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

A VARIATION ON A WELL-KNOWN THEME Gene Mora, who writes the “Graffiti” cartoon, used this line: “If at first you do succeed, try not to look surprised.” If you work out the right line of play in this deal, try not to look surprised! What would you do in three notrump after West leads his fourth-highest spade? Do not be concerned about a low doubleton when opening one no-trump. Here, if you open one club, your partner will respond one diamond. What would you do then? You would have no accurately descriptive rebid. You start with seven top tricks: one spade (because of the opening lead), two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs.

You must establish two more club winners to get home. First, though, what do you do at trick one? With honor-doubleton on the board, put up the honor; here, the king. (If it were queen-doubleton on the board and king-third in your hand, you would play the queen.) If East plays low, work hard to keep him off the lead, so that he cannot push a spade through your queen. Here, though, East takes the king with his ace and returns the 10. You duck and win the third spade. Now you must not let West win a trick, because he would then cash two spade tricks to defeat you. It is time for an avoidance play. Lead a diamond to dummy’s king and call for

a club. When East plays the queen, let him take the trick. And when West follows suit, you are home. If instead East plays a lower club, take the trick and cash the other high honor, hoping that West did not start with queen-third.

What I value...

FAMILY PROSPERITY

Financially healthy families build strong communities. The current situation... · Large seasonal-based employment and consequent layoffs cause financial strain on families.

· With one or both parents working out of town, additional pressures are placed on the family unit.

· Financial struggles create challenges to adequately support family activities, reducing opportunities to participate in recreational activities or saving for post-secondary education.

Authorized by terry MArriott, finAnciAl Agent. 778.489.4734

Year-round, full-time employment for families is vital for Shuswap growth and prosperity.

On the road again

t was just about one year ago that I wrote about my travels to assorted ports in Ontario, Florida and Newfoundland and thought at that time that it might be my last trip east, the land of my birth. Yet here I am again returning to the homeland to visit relatives and friends and have new Pat Black adventures, all thanks to the generosity of my son, Chris, and his family and to the generosity of my sister, Connie, who presented me with the airline tickets to go. Only this time I am going for two months rather than four as I did last year. My flight from Kelowna to Toronto was amazing. I sat next to a non-stop talker. At first I was very dismayed and kept raising my book to read but the message went unnoticed and on and on he droned. His monologue covered many subjects. He was a retired school teacher with many interests and lived in a small Ontario city with his wife of 45 years. I travelled alongside him as he revisited Cuba, Hawaii, Alaska, his daughter’s hillside home in Kelowna and the new baby. We went back to

personal best

the ‘50s with his camping and his trekking around Europe with other would-be-hippies. Finally I was treated to most of the thousand or so photos he has on his iPad. Pompeii, a Mediterranean cruise, the Vatican, Santorini, Venice, he had been to them all, and on and on it went. By now I recognized his sisters and brothers-in-law and other relatives. If I had known before I boarded the plane that I would have to sit next to a person who never stopped talking I probably would have changed my flight. But amazingly as I got up to go to the bathroom for the third time, the pilot announced that we would be landing in 30 minutes. I didn’t even have time to plan at what point to take my tranquilizer and we were already arriving in Toronto. Most of the time flying for me is very stressful and this long trip usually seems to last forever and a light tranquilizer is my insurance against anxiety attacks. This time the trip seemed to take no time at all and I thanked my seat mate for his company before he rushed to get off the plane. Isn’t it interesting how inaccurate our convictions can be when opportunities arise to put them to the test? It doesn’t seem to matter how old we are, we can always learn something new and valuable.

This old dog is certainly learning new tricks every day. For the first week of my trip I am staying at my son’s home in Aurora before flying to Naples, Fla., to spend a month with Connie, my sister, at her condo. I have been here almost a week and still haven’t developed any kind of routine to write or work on projects. I have been too busy having fun and experiencing new adventures, while eating fantastic meals cooked by Kathy, our resident gourmet cook, and drinking lots of wine. More about my adventures in my next column! March is nutrition month and living on a limited income doesn’t have to mean that seniors can’t eat healthier. Kerri-Ann Jennings, registered dietitian of the Eating Well magazine, identifies 12 super foods that are inexpensive. The list includes: lentils (high in fibre and protein), oats, kale, almonds (one ounce serving has 37 per cent of the daily requirement of Vitamin E), tea (especially green), oranges (one orange has the daily requirement of Vitamin C), tuna, peanut butter (look for natural peanut butter without hydrogenated oils and sugar), apples, eggs, carrots, and cabbage.

Spring Chipping … Don’t Miss Out! The Corporation of the City of Vernon will provide curbside pickup of residential prunings on the following dates in 2013: City of Vernon & Foothills

April 9 - 12

Okanagan Landing & Blue Jay

April 16 - 19; April 23 - 26

This program is funded by residential garbage customers and is provided on the same day and location as regular garbage pickup. Missed piles not reported to The City of Vernon within 24 hours after the second week will not be picked up. As the service provides only 10 minutes maximum chipping per customer each week, please observe the following: ✔ Same day/location as garbage pickup ✔ Do not pile with neighbour’s ✔ Do not tie with wire ✔ No roots or dirt in pile ✔ Pile thorns separately ✔ No branches or tree trunks more than 4” in diameter ✔ Stack all prunings with butt ends facing street or lane. Tangled piles or excessive volumes may result in material left behind, therefore property owners can hire a chipper or haul to the landfill. Customers using bin service must make their own arrangements to dispose of prunings. Greater Vernon Recycling & Disposal Facility (Sanitary Landfill) is located 6 km south of Vernon off Hwy 97 (120 Birnie Road). Current hours of operation: from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more landfill information call RDNO at 550-3700. Tipping fees will be waived for all residential yard and garden waste, including prunings (less than 20 cm in diameter), from April 7 to April 30, 2013.

Cliff Lattery of Vernon spends time with some of the children at an orphanage and school in Faridabad, India, during a recent volunteer trip he made there through International Volunteers HQ.

Travelling to make a difference cara brady

Morning Star Staff

Cliff Lattery is one of many people who want to get involved but find their time is limited by work and family commitments. For him, the best way to give is spending his holidays on volunteer aid trips to places where his assistance is needed. He went to Cambodia last year and has recently returned from helping at an orphanage and school in Faridabad, near Delhi, India. “I love kids and I went there to spend time with the children, to help them with English and just to be with them,” said Lattery, who works in the housing industry and is the father of a nine-year-old daughter. “I brought home a lot more than I gave. I feel humble that I was able to do this for these children.” He did the trip through International Volunteers HQ, which set up everything, including a family home stay. “This is the best way to get involved with a different lifestyle and culture. I was at the Miracle Charitable Society which runs the orphanage and school and they spoke English. It was a slum area where there was a lot of need.

The children studied English but could not speak it so we got along with hand gestures and pictures. I played games — the boys like cricket — with the children and took some to a fair which they had never been to before. There were not many male volunteers so I got a lot of attention.” Lattery saw a need for some basic items at the orphanage and was able to buy sheets, clothes, hygiene things, carpets to sit on and paint for a chalkboard at the school. When he saw children playing on the roof tops and jumping over four-foot gaps, he built a walkway for them. “Everyone has something to gain from an experience like this, even though I realize this is not for everyone. I came home thinking that I was so grateful for what we have here, although I think we are missing a lot of family and neighbourhood bonding support,” he said. “I want to continue to do this every year if I can. There was also a chance to see the country. I went to see the Taj Mahal one weekend. This kind of travel makes you more open-minded and understanding and interested in others. My passion is to have other people experience something like this. But you don’t have to go far away to help others. There is always need.”

Ava Wagner donates recreation passes to Vernon Women’s Transition House Society, accepted here by staff member Daphne Reid. For her recent fifth birthday, Ava asked her friends to bring a toonie instead of a gift and she selected a charity to benefit from the fundraising. She collected enough toonies to purchase 10 child and 10 youth swim passes so that children who are staying at Transition House will have the chance to go swimming.

home for the Elderly and the Beautiful. I love that line and it comes from one of my new favourite movies, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. The hotel in India was target marketed to have seniors from other countries come live there on a permanent basis. I believe the young man said, “from countries where they do not value their seniors.” A home for the elderly and the beautiful, I like that. I like the image it creates as we think of aging and beauty together. The other movie that

garden, or accompanying their friends at the piano. It is a wonderful movie. So what talents do I have that will keep me company as I age? The gift of gab? In our house we are discussing our own retirement a great deal. The list of what my darling will do in retirement is lengthy. I am not there yet but I do fantasize about leisurely and busy fun days ahead. The people I know who have retired in their 50s and 60s describe a busy life of skiing, snowshoeing, paddle boarding, sailing, hiking, canoe trips, kayaking, travel, gardening, writing, painting, great times with friends and family. Sounds similar to the activities in which I had the lads participate in their youth. So now perhaps I can imagine recapturing some of my youth as I age. My

knees are not great, and the extra poundage doesn’t help, of course I could get rid of that extra-large sack of flour I pack around. You just participate in a different way, and participation and trying are key. I have a romantic idea of this time ahead, and that’s what I want, as we all do. Not plagued by illness, or loneliness or financial stress. But many of our elderly and beautiful do experience these. As a society how we value our elderly says a great deal about us. The appreciation of the wisdom and life experience earned, of sacrifices made when we were young, the caring and nurturing we received, and the knowledge and talents that lie behind the wrinkles is what built this great country. My mom would get frustrated with people treating her as “old” which to her meant unimportant and helpless, when inside a body that was failing her for many years was a sharp wit and a heart of gold. Up until her 80s she complained, and we now see 80 as the new 60. We can be a country and culture that treats our elders with dignity and respect, and it starts with each of as individuals, families, communities, governments. Let us not forget we are all going to be the elderly and beautiful one day.

AURA brings light to spring concerts Choir shows that music for the dead doesn’t have to be dreary Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

Composed for the souls of the deceased, a requiem could be considered a dour piece of music, or in Mozart’s case, a passion project cut short due to his own death. However, AURA Chamber Choir is about to show a lighter side to the mass for the dead when it performs two requiems at its spring concerts, April 13 and 14 at All Saints Anglican Church. Entitled Lux Æterna, Latin for eternal light, the concerts will feature the requiems written by French composers Gabriel Fauré and Maurice Duruflé. “It’s not uncommon for these two masses to be paired, however, this is the first time AURA has done them together,” said Imant Raminsh, the choir’s founder and leader. “It’s comforting music. There’s no emphasis on the fear of hell or retribution like in Mozart’s requiem. They are more optimistic; looking forward to the after life and paradise.” Composed before the turn of the 20th century, Fauré’s Requiem in D minor, Op. 48 is written for orchestra, organ, mixed chorus and two soloists, while Duruflé’s The Requiem, Op. 9 was composed just after the Second World War, and was written for a SATB (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone) choir with

mezzo-soprano and baritone soloists. Although AURA will not have a full orchestra accompaniment, it will feature Marjorie Close on All Saints’ pipe organ, while AURA co-director Terry Logan will perform on piano. George Kiraly has also been invited to play the obbligato cello solo from Duruflé’s requiem, while vocalists, Penticton’s Mia Harris and Donald Goerzen, who is coming in from Calgary, will sing the mezzo soprano and baritone parts respectively. Vernon soprano Miya Doige is also performing the Pie Jesu from the Fauré requiem. The concert is a sneak peek of what’s to come when AURA celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2014 with a full performance of Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor K, 427, which will be a B.C. Interior premiere, said Raminsh. “In Mozart’s lifetime there are two pieces he never finished, his requiem and his grand mass, although he completed portions of it,” said Raminsh. “At the time he was rediscovering the music of Bach, and (the mass) is reminiscent of Bach’s Mass in B minor. Mozart also couldn’t escape opera and so there is that influence as well.” Written in 1782 and 1783, Mozart’s first son, Raimund Leopold, died around that time, and so it is believed that the composer put the work aside because of the painful events in his life, said Raminsh. The mass has made a recent revival, however, with a new version written by composer Robert Levin

imant raminsh leads the aUra Chamber Choir in its spring concert, Lux Æterna: requiems by Fauré and Duruflé, at all saints anglican Church april 13 and 14. and conducted by Helmut Rilling for the 2006 Mozart anniversary year. “Levin took the original music and also studied some of the other music Mozart was working on at the time and filled in the parts that were missing,” said Raminsh. The result is a large work, 80 minutes in its entirety. “We are hoping to raise money for an orchestra and we already have some fine soloists from the Okanagan and Kamloops joining us,” said Raminsh. Sopranos Alexandra Babbel of

Kelowna and Stephanie Nakagawa of Salmon Arm, as well as bass Allen Corbishley from Kamloops and Thomas Bijok, a tenor also from Kamloops who has studied in Prague, will join AURA, which is expecting to start rehearsals in the fall. “We are inviting back all AURA singers and other interested choral singers from the community to join us. It is a demanding work so the singers will need some agility, and if they are interested they can audition,” said Raminsh.

AURA performs Lux Æterna Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 14 at 2 p.m. at All Saints Anglican Church, 3205 27th St., Vernon. Tickets are available from choir members, at the door and at the Bean Scene Coffee House. Adults are $18; students are free. Extra parking is available across the street from the church in the Beairsto school parking lot. More information is available at aurachamberchoir.com, email aurachoir@gmail.com or phone 250542-8118.

Funtastic announces heavy hitters for A&W Music Festival Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

If you’re expecting to unwind at this year’s Funtastic A&W Music Festival, think again. This year’s lineup features a diverse array of artists guaranteed to have both slo-pitch players and music lovers pumping their fists and flicking their Bics (make that Smart phones.) New this year is an added extra night of

music, on the Monday, which this year happens to be Canada Day, said Jim McEwan, Funtastic executive director. Performing before the fireworks display will be two of Canada’s rock heavyweights, Vancouver’s Theory of a Deadman and Toronto’s Big Wreck. “Canada Day is the perfect day to bring two huge Canadian acts to town,” said McEwan, adding Funtastic is also appealing to its 25-to-40-year-old demographic with

some more modern-era bands. “The crowd is going to be wowed. Theory of a Deadman and Big Wreck are very much musicians’ bands. They are unbelievable in the studio and even better live.” Big Wreck, which reunited in 2010 with lead singer Ian Thornley and guitarist Brian Doherty, has more recently hit the airwaves with Top 5 hit Wolves off its 2012 album Albatross, and is sure to play past hits such as The Oaf, That Song, Blown Wide Open,

and Ladylike. Meanwhile Theory of a Deadman continues to tour North America. The first band to be signed by Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger’s label, the band has had seven Top 10 hits, including Santa Monica, Hurricane, Lowlife, So Happy, Bad Girlfriend and All or Nothing, and won a Juno for Best New Group of the Year in 2003.

Philip hauls didgeridoos to Vernon Shane Philip to play new songs off upcoming album at The Hub Arts Collective Morning Star Staff

Multi-instrumentalist Shane Philip is known worldwide for his dynamic didgeridoo-infused music. Voted Best Live Act at the 2012 Vancouver Island Music Awards, Philip has been touring constantly for the past few years now, and is about to return to the North Okanagan with a show at The Hub Arts Collective in Vernon Thursday. For those who have never caught the Quadra Island performer before, Philip is a one-man force on stage. His feet wildly work his drum kit while he plays guitar, the aslatua (an African shaker), the djembe and, of course, his didgeridoos. Philip’s rhythmic and intoxicating sounds are powerful enough to fill a room with dancing fans and soulful enough to quiet a packed house. Those songs have captured audiences for years in Canada, particularly along the West Coast, but for the past five years, he’s captured listeners around the globe. Philip’s last recording, Life.Love.

Shane Philip brings his arsenal of instruments to The Hub Arts Collective in downtown Vernon Thursday. Music, is rich with vocals and features much more of that mesmerizing sound

he is so well known for. Before that, he released Live at Baker Studios. Heavier on the blues side, this album had more of the grit that comes out during Philip’s live shows. For Life.Love.Music, Philip once again hooked up with producer Joby Baker (Cowboy Junkies, Alex Cuba). Baker often plays bass and drums on the tracks and the two took a total of eight days to record the album. That might sound fast, but Philip is known for completing his projects quickly. The Baker Studios album took only two days to record. The result of taking the extra time is a polished recording that maintains the grit and integrity of Philip’s compositions. This year, Philip is well on his way to releasing a new album and those who attend his show at The Hub Arts Collective can look forward to hearing some of the unreleased tracks. Joining him at the performance will be special guests Mikkal Waters, Jayme McKillop, Lowell Friesen, and DJ Molokaii. Philip takes the stage at The Hub, located next to the Towne Cinema on 30th Avenue, Thursday at 8:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $20 in advance at the Ticket Seller, 5497469, www.ticketseller.ca or the Bean Scene coffee house.

recently in Penticton, Heart fans can get the next best thing when Vancouver act tribute act Barracuda also plays June 29. Country fans can get in on the action when B.C. born and raised Aaron Pritchett returns to Funtastic with hits such as Hold My Beer (While I Kiss Your Girlfriend) June 30.

he Earth has been overrun by a parasitic alien race. Humans play host to fragile tentacled beings of light, small enough to hold in your hand. Taylor & Howe These creatures are surgically implanted into our necks where they latch onto our brain stems, at which point we cease being who we were and become them. Some humans are able to resist this personal invasion and fight back, from within their own minds. From this internal struggle a resistance is formed. We say, “It’s a perfect example of the kind of story not to make into a movie.” HOWE: The Host is a very interesting concept of a movie yet I found myself wishing it was over within the first 15 minutes. There were a few things that really grated me about it. The main seeker (Diane Kruger) riding around hopelessly looking for Melanie/Wanda for most of the movie and

Jake Abel and Saoirse Ronan make out (again) in The Host. even the great William Hurt couldn’t save this dud. But what really got under my skin was when Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) was implanted with the parasite,Wanda. The conversations, the arguing and the screaming (that takes place inside Melanie’s head) between the personalities, was really annoying. TAYLOR: I agree. Anytime you have narration in a movie, it’s usually because the film is unable to speak for itself. Oftentimes novels that have been turned into movies fail because of an inability to

have a character’s thoughts expressed visually. Both these setbacks plague The Host and it suffers because so much of the drama takes place in one girl’s bifurcated consciousness. HOWE: Yet again we find ourselves rooting for the bad guys, after all the aliens were providing us with a Utopian system to live by: no war, no poverty and lots of love. Maybe a little too much love in this instance: One girl, two boys. Yet this is nothing new to expect from writer Stephenie Meyer seeing as she is the author of the Twilight

Saga. I wonder if she has another agenda for herself? TAYLOR: Cashing in on the shallow lusting of teenage girls? This encompasses the bulk of the plot. It’s a shame really. Meyer has left so many questions unanswered, and these concerns are the things that would have made the film better. Without learning much of anything about this ancient alien race, we are left with a girl with two personalities: one loves boy A, one loves boy B. Guess who doesn’t care... HOWE: Either of us. The film could have made a meaningful statement about the power of love, or even other human emotions. Instead it’s about physical attraction and nothing more. It wasn’t even interesting to watch, except for the shiny Lotus. TAYLOR: Those seeking some of the illusory magic that made Twilight the phenom it was would be best served by simply reading The Host and leaving it to your imagination. It’s probably more capable. This movie is boring in multiple galaxies. — Howe gives The Host 1 wandering soul out of 5. — Taylor gives it 1.5 rolled eyes out of 5. The film is currently playing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

The human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) is a cancerpreventing vaccine. It helps prevent cervical cancer as well as cancer of the anus and the vagina. It also protects against the virus that causes genital warts. It is recommended that all females between the ages of 9 and 45 get the vaccination to prevent these cancers. Our sense of taste gradually becomes less acute after the age of 60. However taste can be affected by dental disease, upper respiratory tract infections and smoking. Some drugs may cause changes in taste as well. Let our pharmacists know if you suspect this is happening to you and we will check it for you. The maximum amount of time children should spend in front of a screen daily is two hours.

Empowering workshops offered Morning Star Staff

The Monashee Arts Council continues its innovative offerings of art classes and workshops into April with new courses. Following this weekend’s workshop on Altered Books: Journaling with Collage and Paint workshop, facilitated by instructor Rosalie Williams, the MAC is offering a three-day workshop entitled Women’s Spirit Theatre, which will run April 13, 20, and 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Presented by Leda Cedar, the goal of the workshop is to make tangible the struggles of women as an oppressed population, and engage the community in learning this creative approach to facilitating community dialogue, said Jennifer Greenwood, arts and culture program coordinator for the Monashee Arts Council. Cedar will facilitate the method she has learned through Theater for Living director David Diamond and teach participants to develop images, voice and movement to represent authentic concerns. “Her overall objective is to reach local women who are seeking deeper self and life understanding, and perhaps solutions for achieving social justice for themselves,” said Greenwood. After the first couple of classes, which will be filled with fun activities, participants will work in groups

to make images that depict their concern and give them authentic movement with voice. “Participants will focus on what concerns them in the scope of social justice issues,” said Cedar. Registration is required for this workshop by noon Thursday at the Monashee Arts Council office. The council is also offering the Earth Arts - Medicine Pouch workshop Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Local artist and entrepreneur Suzan Purdy is taking time away from her studio at Blue Mountain Tannery to facilitate this one-evening class on creating a traditional medicine pouch. “Students will learn how to fashion a mystical medicine pouch using traditional materials and methods,” said Greenwood. “Most often made of leather, a medicine pouch contains special items meaningful to the person who wears it such as a crystal for clarity, or a coin for prosperity.” Registration is required by noon on Tuesday through the MAC office.

Vernon prof wins print award Morning Star Staff

A new printing of a classic essay on typography has resulted in a prestigious book design award for Okanagan College English professor Jason Dewinetz. The Vernon native, who specializes in typography and teaches letterpress printing in The Bunker at the Vernon campus, received second place in the limited edition category in this year’s Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada. Dewinetz’s book was among 41 titles that were acknowledged in this year’s awards, selected from 236 entries submitted by 112 publishers – all Canadian. Dewinetz chose to reprint Stanley Morison’s essay First Principles of Typography. The British typographer, who created the Times New Roman font and died in 1967, is considered to be the most influential typographic scholar of the 20th century. “Morison’s essay is one of the most important introductions to typography, and has been published in dozens of editions, yet there have not been many finepress productions of the

work,” said Dewinetz. “And, frankly, I wanted a nice copy of the essay for myself, which is usually the driving force for most of the books I make.” With that in mind, Dewinetz produced a limited edition of 50 copies of the book, each one selling for $200. “This modest little book is delicately handled with meticulous craftsmanship,” wrote the judges in granting the award. The judges also appreciated Dewinetz’s decision to marry both old and new techniques, starting with his selection of type – a modified version of Romanée, a very rare early 20th-century metal type designed by Jan van Krimpen – a Dutch contemporary of Morison. Dewinetz then revived the type by converting it into a digital

format, which was used to produce polymer printing plates. “The bigger type size makes a dry text more approachable,” the judges wrote. This marks the 10th Alcuin Society award for Dewinetz, who publishes his limited edition books through his company Greenboathouse Press, based in Vernon. Dewinetz also acted as judge for the 2007 Alcuin Society Awards. This latest award means Dewinetz’s book can now take part in a number of exhibitions including one at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and as one of the books representing Canada at the Best Book Design from the All Over the World competition held each year in Leipzig, Germany.

PST reversion a taxing process Morning Star Staff

You asked for it, and now it’s back. As of Monday, the province officially ditched the harmonized sales tax (HST) and reverted back to the old PST/GST system. British Columbians, led by crusading ex-premier Bill Vander Zalm, voted to scrap the ill-fated HST via a mail-in referendum in the summer of 2011, with 54.73 per cent of eligible voters (there was a 52 per cent turnout for a population of 1.6 million) choosing to get rid of the tax. The list of goods and services that will cost less under the two-tax system is remarkable. As of Monday, consumers will be paying seven per cent less for: e-books, newspapers and magazines, dry cleaning, snack foods, restaurant food, catering and event planning services, basic cable television, residential land lines, taxi fares, camping sites, domestic travel (air, bus or rail) originating in B.C., real estate commissions, vitamins and supplements, admission fees for movie, theatre, cultural and sporting events, golf and gym memberships, bicycles, massage therapy, hair stylists and estheticians, veterinary services, accounting services, courier services and tobacco. Several goods and services will see a hike in price, most notably alcoholic beverages, which will increase from the 12 per cent HST to a 5+10 per cent GST/PST. Also, short-term accommodation (hotel stays) will increase by one per cent. For a comprehensive list, visit www.pstinbc. According to small business minister Naomi Yamamoto, about 75,000 businesses had updated their point of sale systems to be PST-compliant before April 1, while another 25,000 hadn’t begun the process. Businesses will not be able to purchase goods from their supplier tax-exempt without providing a PST number or completing a certificate of exemption. Suppliers must show the PST registration number on the invoice or sales document, or maintain a properly completed certificate of exemption, to support their non-collection of the tax. A wide range of tools and services are available to help businesses prepare for the re-implementation of the PST including: one-on-one consultations with a government tax specialist; and online webinars covering the general principles of the PST. Businesses with questions about the PST can call toll-free 1-877-388-4440, or e-mail CTBTaxQuestions@gov.bc.ca. Further online support services for businesses are available at www.gov.bc.ca/pstoutreach. To register for a PST number, visit www.gov.bc.ca/pst According to Jon Milligan of White Kennedy Chartered Accountants, many established companies are familiar with GST and PST. It is new companies that may face greater challenges. “A lot of new businesses have opened since the HST introduction on July 1, 2010 and they still need to register for PST,” said Milligan. “It’s these businesses that could potentially fall through the cracks during the transition process.” Roger Houle, Valley First’s assistant vice-president of commercial banking, believes the transition back to GST and PST has come about rapidly for small business. “Small business owners face many challenges larger companies can avoid,” said Houle. “They are often the bookkeeper, sales force, HR and IT departments, all rolled into

British Columbians voted in favour of scrapping the HST, and replacing it with the old PST/GST system in a 2011 referendum. one. With all the demands on the small business owner, while it may have an impact on the business, it is understandable that the switch back to GST and PST has crept up on many people.” B.C.’s restaurant industry welcomes the PST’s return. “Effective (April 1), the 2.7 million guests who visit British Columbia restaurants every day will pay less for restaurant meals,” said Mark von Schellwitz, Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association vice-president, Western Canada. Von Schellwitz says restaurant sales in B.C. fell dramatically when HST was introduced, costing the food service industry a total of $1.5 billion in lost sales. He added B.C.’s cumulative restaurant industry sales grew at by 1.4 per cent since HST, compared to 11.5 per cent for the rest of Canada during the same period. CRFA forecasts that B.C.’s restaurant industry will grow by 5.1 per cent in 2013. However, not all restaurants feel the HST was overly onerous. Chance Temple, owner of the Riverfront Pub in Grindrod, said the HST probably could have worked had the government handled its implementation a little more smoothly. Temple responded to a poll on The Morning Star’s Facebook page, saying: “Going to be interesting to see the reactions at our pub/restaurant. We initially felt a hit on food sales when the HST came in, but business came back and things went back to normal.” Regarding the switch back to the two-tax system, he added: “A surprising amount of people are not even aware of the switch back to the GST/PST system! “The change back to the old system felt poorly supported.

We applied early for our PST number and didn’t get it until the last minute, which left us scrambling to get our suppliers updated.” Here are some other Facebook poll responses from North Okanagan businesses and consumers... Teresa Deak, owner of Social Butterfly Solutions – “The whole thing has been an unfortunate mess. The government of the day probably could have gotten buy-in from the voters if they had implemented the HST with one per cent tax reduction across the board and made the HST only 11 per cent. “They may have even gotten us to reluctantly accept the tax if they had put any effort at all into selling it to us. But their arrogance backfired and the people were angry. “The combined HST reduced administrative burden and overall tax costs for businesses by allowing all HST paid by the business to be deducted from the HST charged on their sales. This simpler system was definitely good for business.” Ingrid Baron of Emerald Valley Sprinklers: “Should have kept the HST. The PST just becomes a hidden cost which the consumer pays for in the end anyway.” Kari Gares, co-owner of MHC Mortgage House: “HST was a good thing for our business, allowing us to claim back a larger portion of taxes paid. In the end, the consumer pays for the switch back.” Paula Harned of Lumby: “People wanted less bureaucracy – the HST eliminated an entire department of the bureaucrats in Victoria. I will admit, the Liberals did not deliver this in the best possible way. But, now every member of this province will pay because some people fail to see good policy even when it is delivered to them on a silver platter.”

El Gusto serves up Latino flare Graeme Corbett Business Editor

Fanny Chapman misses many things about her native Mexico. Food tops the list. Having moved to Canada in 1993 with her husband Steve Chapman, a machinist with B.C. Hydro, she has lived all over province. Access to the basic ingredients to make traditional Mexican cuisine has been sporadic at best. Chapman (née Bader Castañeda), originally from Acapulco, took matters into her own hands, opening El Gusto Latino food market in February. It is located on Coldstream Avenue (next to Teeter Totter Toys). “I miss it,” said Chapman. “I couldn’t find it in Vernon. In Vancouver, it was easy to find. There were stores everywhere, but not in

the Interior. There was a need for it.” Lining El Gusto’s shelves are the staple ingredients – including fresh tortillas, corn masa mix, hot sauces, chorizo, cheese, tamales, dried peppers, chipotle – to make authentic Mexican dishes and other Latino fare. “You can make your own things from scratch,” said Chapman, who settled with her family – daughter Fanny, seven, and son Robert, six – in Vernon in 2010. Chapman adds El Gusto will be a good fit for the seasonal influx of Mexican workers who come to the region to work in the orchards during the growing and harvest seasons. El Gusto also offers free cooking lessons on Saturdays from noon to 1 p.m.

Blended families

M

any Canadian families are still of the ‘traditional’ kind but, according to Statistics Canada, their numbers are declining while those for blended families are growing. The 2011 census included stepfamilies (StatsCan’s term for blended families) for the first time, and according to the census stepfamilies now represent about one in eight families with children. Money matters are often a challenge in any relationship, and they become even more challenging in the case of a second (or third) marriage or commonlaw relationship, especially when they include children from previous and current relationships. Here are some points to consider: If you and your partner have separate financial plans, it’s important that you come together and develop a cohesive plan to help attain your new family’s objectives. Determine how you are going to treat all your children equally. Establish an RESP for every child that does not already have one. If you and your partner designate each other as the direct beneficiary of all of their assets, when one partner dies, everything goes to the survivor, potentially disinheriting the children of the deceased spouse. And,

Guest Column

Andy Erickson

if the surviving partner should remarry, the new partner could become entitled to the estate (or a large portion of it) which could disinherit not only the children of the deceased partner but even the children of the survivor. For these reasons, a standard will is not recommended for a blended family. Other strategies include dividing the estate at the time of death of the first parent or using a spousal trust to protect the assets for both families. It’s crucial to speak to your legal advisor regarding a will with terms appropriate for your blended family. Similar problems can arise from jointly held property. Many couples choose to hold property jointly so title passes automatically to the survivor on the death of the spouse and avoids probate fees. But if you have children or other dependants from a previous relationship and want them to share in the value of your property, then holding title to the property jointly with the right of survivorship isn’t recommended. Speak

to your legal advisors regarding ways to hold title to property in a way that benefits your children and carries out your wishes. Andy Erickson is the division director with Investors Group, Vernon.

FRANCE - Paris, that iconic city of movies and dreams, doesn’t truly exist. Instead, we each create our own Paris; a place, both real and illusory. “The city exists,” writes John Baxter in The Most Beautiful Walk in the World, “as a blank page on which each person scribbles what the French call a griffe — literally “a claw” but more precisely a signature; a choice of favourite cafes, shops, parks, and the routes that link them...” Paris then, is created through a series of overlapping visions, each created by every visitor and by her residents, revealing herself to each of us through the act of walking. Your own unique Paris, is built one step at a time. On this past visit, it began again for me as soon as my husband and I had dropped our bags at the Hotel Cervantes in the 8th arrondisement. It was a lovely discovery, a hotel far enough away from the

800•667•9552 Vernon: 250•545•9197

centre to feel less touristy but still only a short Metro ride from all the major Paris sights. We wandered about, asking in our best Franglais for a recommendation for a coffee shop, a restaurant, any nearby museums or parks. Within hours, a demarcation started

to reveal itself. We had sketched the first outline for our new neighbourhood. That night we found a little restaurant in the nearby Place de Clichy. We picked it the same way we usually do; based on whether there were gorgeous aromas emanating from the

kitchen, whether there was a suitable buzz of happy people, and by the general mood and lighting of the room. Like all French restaurants we were seated quite close to the other  diners. We were soon talking to Mary. An American, she had been coming to “her neighbourhood” for years, first with her husband, and now as a 60-year old widow, she still made the trip to get her French fix in her little part of Paris. “I love all my regular restaurants,” she said, taking another bite of her duck and sipping from her glass of Gamay. “I come for a few weeks each year, though this is one of my shorter, one-week trips.” By using this walkand-wander approach, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve picked the ‘right’ arrondisment. Paris, like the water rings from a cast pebble, circles its centre, one district rippling in rings after the next. Using this approach, our hotel in the 8th could be seen as less desirable than those

smack dab in the centre of the city. The premise being, that the numbers closest to the centre are the places to be and be seen. But forget all those chi-chi guides that insist you must be in this inner circle or that one. You don’t have to worry about being too far from the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower or any of the other must-sees on the tourist list. No matter where you are in the city, you are always a short walk from a Metro stop. But remember that Paris is more than that check list of postcardfeatured cathedrals, museums and sights. Those iconic places make up an overwhelming list that only seems to get longer as you check them off. Recognize you won’t see it all. Pick one or two of the big ones from the list each day and spend the rest of the time absorbing and lingering. Because it is in the wandering and the lingering that Paris will become yours. Sit with a coffee or a glass of wine while perusing a new book, perhaps something wonderful from Shakespeare & Co. Or lounge on a park bench, watching all the other tourists line up, exhausted, marching from one site to the next. Admire the Parisienne women (and men) with their elegant scarves. Buy your own scarf. Be your best elegant and oh-so-French self. And in between those leisurely cafe visits, walk. Walk around your new neighbourhood. Look and listen and most importantly, enjoy. You are busy creating your very own Paris. Colleen Friesen is with Travel Writers’ Tales.

Alec “Duke” Davyduke

͘͘'ĞŽīƌĞLJ^D/d, 1937 – 2013

Obituaries

October 5th, 1929 - March 18, 2013

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of long time Enderby resident Alec “Duke” Davyduke. Born to John and Anne Davyduke in Smeaton, Saskatchewan, Duke was the eldest son of seven children. Along with his family, he moved from Smeaton to the lower mainland area of BC in 1948 before eventually settling in the Enderby area. Duke spent his many working years in the forest industry. In his early working career he worked in logging, but the majority of his career was spend working as a head sawyer in local area sawmills. In 1952, while working at a logging camp in Pincher Creek, Duke met his bride-to-be, Ruby Sanderson. The two were married in 1953 in Enderby, where they settled and raised their two sons, Gerald and Roland. Duke was always active in the community. In its formative years, he held a number of positions with local minor hockey, eventually settling into a long-time role as a referee. Along with Gerry and Al, he refereed countless minor hockey, Monashee League, and recreational hockey games. After he put away his whistle he remained active in Enderby, volunteering to Citizens On Patrol in the evenings and serving as a school crossing guard in the days. For many years there was seldom a volunteer work party in the area that Duke didn’t gladly donate his time and energy to. He especially enjoyed to forty-seven years he was able to serve on the local fire department. While only slightly less active in his later years, he greatly enjoyed seeing the many young faces that he was able to tour through the local fire hall. Though greatly honoured recently by the City of Enderby and the Fire Department for his many years of service, Duke normally preferred to work quietly in the background. In recent years he became well known for his gardening, usually being seen tending to his lovely flower beds, particularly his dahlias. Duke is survived by his loving wife Ruby; two sons: Gerald (Gloria), Roland (Sonja); five grandchildren: Corey (Vigi), Curtis (Taryn), Clarke (Penny), Courtney and Brittany; three great-grandchildren: Mya, Chase and Brayden; siblings: Mary Kneale of Surrey, BC and Walter Davyduke of Delta, BC. Duke was predeceased by his parents: John and Anne; siblings: Liz, Helen, Bill, and Elmer. We would like to thank the staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital for the kindness and respect they showed to Duke over the past months. At Duke’s request, no funeral service will be held. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.

Lost & Found

In Loving Memory To our Mom

Julie Hamilton passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 31, 2013 at Vernon Hospice, surrounded by her loving family.

Renate Wenzlaff January 2, 1936 April 8, 2012

Julie was born on August 27, 1957 in England. Her family moved to Canada and she grew up in eastern Canada and BriƟsh Columbia. She met Sean Hamilton in Vernon 35 years ago. Their relaƟonship blossomed and they were married in 1980. Julie returned to school in the 1980’s, excelled as a mature student and graduated as an award-winning Registered Nurse from Okanagan University College. That graduaƟon marked the beginning of her long nursing career, during which Ɵme she worked in both Kelowna and Vernon, serving most recently as a highly respected maternity nurse at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Throughout her career, Julie was a consummate professional, always puƫng the interests of her paƟents Įrst and aspiring to the highest standards of care. Julie approached the outdoors with the passion and boundless energy similar to that which inspired her professional life. An avid and skilled mountain-biker, cross-country skier, kayaker, and hiker, Julie loved spending Ɵme in outdoor adventures with her family and many friends. More oŌen than not, she was the one who planned and organinjed those ouƟngs, always thinking of ways to make them fun for everyone. A giŌed photographer, she captured many of those special moments in photographs, which oŌen turned into beauƟful cards and framed prints. She is survived by: her husband Sean; son Kevin and his partner Marika; daughter Alison and husband Craig, and their son Landon. Julie will also be missed by: her father John; sisters: Caroline (Gary), Vanessa (Jim), and Sarah (Mark); and brother Tim (Karen). Joining in their sorrow are: Sean’s brothers, Jim (Liz) and Colin (Olga); sisters: Patricia, Catherine (Allan), Jo Anne(Paul), and Colleen (Katherine). She also leaves behind nineteen nieces and nephews and seven great-nieces and nephews.

The memories you gave us will be our keepsake We will treasure them always You gave us life, love & strength You are in our hearts every day We miss you so very much! We’ll love you forever Your Children
