RDNO guilty in contamination case ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A provincial court judge has found the Regional District of North Okanagan guilty of four charges in connection with a water contamination case. Mayland McKimm found the regional district guilty of failing to provide potable water, allow contamination of drinking water, introduce foreign matter into a well and operate a well in a manner to cause adverse impact in connection with the contamination of the Antwerp Springs water source in January 2010. About 3,500 people were notified in January 2010 that the Antwerp Springs well source had been contaminated, and that they must not drink the water until bacteriological tests are clean. The source became contaminated after a series of failures and bizarre warm winter weather. Manure had been spread onto snow and frozen ground on a surrounding hillside near the Antwerp Springs wells, but on Jan. 13, 2010 a heavy rainfall landed on top of the substantial snowpack. That caused the snow to melt rapidly, and the water landing on the snowpack flushed the effluent into a culvert which then went to various drains and ultimately onto a field near the Antwerp Springs wells. McKimm said it was not possible to determine how effluent entered the Antwerp Springs well and was pumped into the distribution system. “I’m not satisfied on the balance of probability that the regional district did use due diligence in avoiding the risk to the shallow well (one of three wells at Antwerp) to become contaminated and thereafter provide non-potable water to the users,” said McKimm. The judge said in delivering his decision Wednesday that the regional district had known for more than a decade that there were “significant issues with a cross-connection to the drainage system around the well and the well itself,” and had been ordered on a number of separate occasions to install a backflow preventer to minimize a contamination risk. “They did not do so,” said McKimm of RDNO. The regional district maintained dialogue with Interior Health about other

The Regional District of North Okanagan was found guilty on four charges in connection with the contamination Wednesday. options to manage the risk. McKimm said IH approved the continuing use of the well and agreed to allow RDNO to manage the risk by a vigorous regime of monitoring. “That continued to allow the district to place the risk intended on that approach on the users,” said McKimm. “...In my view, that does not absolve them of liability.” Once the regional district became aware the potential for a cross-connection exist-
ed, said McKimm, “they were aware the well was at risk.” “It was incumbent on the regional district to determine with clarity the source of the cross-connection and any other vulnerabilities within the system,” said the judge. “They did not do so. They continued to put the users at risk.” Crown lawyer Joel Gold said McKimm gave a thorough and considerate decision. 2013 TOYOTA
“Crown is pleased he did so because this is an area where there aren’t a lot of decisions,” said Gold. “It’s clear to the Crown and the public that the judge kept the safety and health of the environment and the water users at the forefront when coming to the decision.” RDNO board chairperson Patrick Nicol was disappointed with the decision, saying RDNO had a strong case and insisted staff did work with great due diligence. “We were met with a challenge on that day with a weather circumstance I don’t believe we’ve seen in 50 years,” said Nicol. “We handled it so there were no incidents. We worked tenaciously on the water system to serve some 80,000 people. We’ve been one of the leaders in trying to bring potable water to small and some urbanized areas. We’ve done it at great cost.” The regional district said Thursday through a news release that the decision suggests “a utility must shift more from the management of risks to the reduction and elimination of risks within its system.” “This may be a very financially onerous task,” said RDNO. “The decision reinforces that we at the RDNO must diligently proceed to complete and implement the Master Water Plan, something the RDNO is committed to do.” Sentencing submissions by both Crown and the RDNO’s attorney will be heard Oct. 16. The District of Coldstream, Pan-ORamic Farms and its then owner were also charged in connection with the contamination. The district pleaded guilty in June 2012 to one count of failing to provide potable water and was fined more than $18,000. Defence expects to seek a similar monetary penalty for RDNO. Asked if the regional district should have done something similar to avoid a trial, Nicol said the price of democracy is not cheap. “The board unanimously believed there was due diligence involved,” he said. “That’s one of the reasons you can defend yourself.” Crown would not say how much it will be asking the regional district to pay. Pan-O-Ramic Farms and its former owner also entered guilty pleas and were fined $1,000 each and ordered to make a $7,000 contribution to the Heritage Conservation Trust Fund.

Assessment sought in case of murder suspect roger knox Morning Star Staff
An assessment under the Mental Health Act has been applied for in B.C. Supreme Court in the case of a 95-year-old Vernon man accused of murder. The application to assess John Furman was to be heard Wednesday in Supreme Court in Kamloops. Furman is charged with murder in connection with the death of William May, 85, at the Polson extended care facility in Vernon Aug. 18. “Mr. Furman is charged with very serious matters, but intention has to be proven,” said Glenn Verdurmen, Furman‘s lawyer. “In these particular circumstances, he’s 95, has a very good record in the community
and is very well loved by the community. “His capacity is what’s in question right now.” The application before Supreme Court is for Furman to undergo an assessment at a Kamloops facility. Verdurmen said that assessment will be “very determinate” of the matter concerning his capacity. “The expectation is, there will be a question that he could form any intention to commit such a crime,” said Verdurmen of the murder charge. A decorated Second World War veteran who has no immediate family in Vernon, Furman was supported in provincial court Wednesday by a dozen community members, including his powers of attorney. Nobody would speak to the media.
“These people care for him enormously,” said Verdurmen. “They’re very concerned about what’s happening to him. They are cognizant that he has a sterling reputation and was a contributor to the nation and the community. “From what the accusations are, it’s very much out of character from the way he’s lived his whole life.” Asked several questions by reporters if he’d spoken to Furman, if he could say if Furman was remorseful or depressed, Verdurmen declined to answer anything about discussions with his client. The matter against Furman was adjourned until Nov. 27. Furman’s original court matter was on Aug. 21.
“The system works slowly sometimes,” said Verdurmen.

Morning Star Staff
Just under a month into the school year, the Vernon School District has received some muchneeded good news with its enrolment numbers. As of Thursday, the district’s enrolment is up 99 students from a projected decline of 176, resulting in a net decline of 77 students from last year. “Enrolment isn’t finalized until Sept. 30, but it’s good news for us,” said superintendent Joe Rogers, at Wednesday’s district board Joe Rogers meeting. “This increase in student enrolment combined with the smaller decline projected for the next four years is very positive news for the district.” Elementary enrolment has increased by 52 students and secondary by 47 students. Total kindergarten to Grade 12 regular enrolment is currently at 7,729 students. Alternate school and online enrolment is continuing to grow as mature students, upgrading students and home-school students enroll in individual courses and programs. The district currently has 150 students enrolled in alternate programs, while 1,1108 aboriginal students are in both elementary and secondary classrooms, 14 per cent of the district enrolment. The district also has 193 international students. Total enrolment for all programs is 8,075 students. Turanski remain concerned about the declining enrolment but is hopeful the trend continues to improve as is indicated in its forecasting reports. “Given the improved enrolment numbers, the board has stated the district will not be closing schools for the 2014-2015 school term,” he said.

with it was amazing. The people who live here are going to be so thankful and happy.” Shaking nervously Tuesday as she told her story to a small crowd of dignitaries, Lewis told how far she has come in her life from being in foster care to now living independently in her new onebedroom townhouse. “I am today living on my own with my own car, being able to open my own garage with an opener and having all of that space for myself and decorating it and making it look pretty,” smiled Lewis. “I’m really happy.” As of Tuesday, 18 of the 20 units had been
filled by Kindale. For Elliot, the joy that people have shown when they’ve seen their units is rewarding. “It’s unbelievable,” she said of the tenants’ respective stories and reactions. “The hugs, the kisses, the tears of joy, the stories of new beginnings and what a difference it’s going to make in their lives.” Elliot said Kindale was showing the available bachelor and twobedroom units Tuesday night. “We’re hoping for full occupancy by Nov. 1,” she stated. The townhouse development consists of eight bachelor, eight one-bedroom and four two-bedroom units. They all fall under the umbrella of affordable housing, which is fantastic for Annette Sharkey, executive director of the Social Planning Council of the North Okanagan. “To get 20 units of affordable housing into our housing stock is huge,” said Sharkey at Tuesday’s opening. “What this brings to the people who are going to live here is incredible.” The capital cost of the Viridian project was just shy of $3 million. The B.C. government provided more than $2.85 million for the purchase of the land and capital costs while the City of Vernon waived more than $81,300 in development cost charges. The city and provincial government were represented at Tuesday’s opening by Vernon Mayor Rob Sawatzky and KelownaLake Country MLA Norm Letnick,

MLAs defend housing stipend
Friday, September 27, 2013 - The Morning Star A7
richard rolke Morning Star Staff
Local MLAs insist housing allowances aren’t being abused. Linda Reid, speaker of the Legislature, will review B.C.’s MLAs possibly receiving $1.1 million in allowances for accommodations in Victoria this year although the House is not sitting this fall. “There was a five-week sitting in July and that’s never happened before,” said Eric Foster, VernonMonashee MLA. Foster also points out that MLAs are frequently in the capital for caucus and committee meetings. “I am in Victoria two nights this week, two nights next week and three on the following week,” said Foster, who Greg Kyllo rents an apartment there. Greg Kyllo, Shuswap MLA, also stands by the current funding structure. ‘“We’re spending a lot of time there,” he said. “I sit on six different committees and I am spending on average, three days a week on the road to Victoria or Vancouver.” Reid has also indicated she will review the policy that permits non-Victoria MLAs to claim up to $1,000 a month in housing expenses without submitting a receipt. Foster doesn’t believe a change in the rules is required. “We’re making more work out of something. Some will have to process that (receipts),” he said. Foster doubts anyone is using the money for items other than housing, whether it is staying at a hotel, renting an apartment or purchasing a home. “What will someone do, sleep in their car?” he said. “You have to stay somewhere. I’m not sure when you’ve been to Victoria lately, but there’s nothing cheap to stay in.” Besides claiming $1,000 a month without a receipt, MLAs can also submit receipts for up to $1,580 monthly for housing or they can hand in receipts for hotel rooms to a maximum of $1,416 a month. “It’s not extravagant,” said Kyllo, who is staying in hotels while in Victoria. Foster admits he is frustrated with the media focus on the Legislature not sitting during the fall when he and other MLAs are busy with a range of activities. “People have a misconception that we’re all at the golf course if we’re not in Victoria which is ridiculous,” he said while at a budget session in Kamloops.

Fine at almost 50
y my count, this will be the final column I write in my 40s. In 21 days – or, as I like to remind friends, family and colleagues, 20 shopping days – I turn 50. I have watched a great number of friends turn 50 this year. Rod was given a cane and fake Viagra at his bash. I missed the party where Donna received a bouquet of prunes. Lise’s friend Trenna threw an amazing Amazing Race-themed party. I was with birthday girl Lise and our team was the last to arrive at the finish line in Spallumcheen, Lise’s house. Brian, Clay and myself went to Duncan to surprise Roger Knox our mutual friend John at what turned out to be a fabulous almost 50-hour 50th birthday party. Our arrival was a complete surprise to John. I told him I couldn’t make the party because of work and distance. Clay lied and said he was opening a new store up north. Brian snubbed John altogether, never replying to the invitation. The look on John’s face was priceless when we showed up unexpectedly on a Friday night, the day before his wife Eva threw a raucous party, complete with barbecued pork. John received a handcrafted bar from his family, accompanied by four (probably could have been 50 but that would have been costly) kegs, all a delightful vintage called Shock Top Belgium White. He also got a bouquet of prunes from us. By the way, Brian (oldest), Clay (youngest) and I were born 10 days apart in October. Just an interesting tidbit. In July, my high school graduation class – Vernon Senior Secondary Class of 1981 – threw a collective 50th birthday party for all of us at Paddlewheel Hall. More than 100 grads from a class of nearly 500 turned out, including two who travelled from Nova Scotia and Ontario. We all had a great time and some of us managed, at our ages, to make it to 3:30 a.m. (we were cleaning the hall).

The Year of Turning 50, for me anyway, is time for reflection. I think that’s only human nature. Without question, the greatest moment of my life happened 13 days after my 36th birthday. I became a father to one incredible son who makes me more and more proud with each passing day. I can’t believe he’s in high school now. My family has always been there for me. Through good times, bad times, dark times. They’ve tied me to a telephone pole in a back yard so I wouldn’t run away. They’ve kept secrets from me. They’ve messed with my car radio. They’ve driven across the white line on the shoulder of the road near Grand Forks and said “Look, you’re now in the United States.” They’ve played April Fool’s pranks on me. They’ve also given me a place to live. They’ve helped me move more than 25 times since high school. They’ve given me unconditional love. The friends I mentioned earlier are part of a large circle that I am blessed to have in my life. One thing about turning 50: I have met a lot of fabulous people in my lifetime. I haven’t travelled extensively (those who know me well know going to Kelowna is a chore) but I am thrilled to have been to Mexico at least once. I think about my career. I’ve been a broadcast and print journalist for 30 years. There isn’t a lot of money in it. There wasn’t when I started, and there isn’t now. But this job has allowed me to interview some amazing people, celebrities, and I’ve had the chance to visit most of B.C. and other parts of Canada. I think about personal relationships and marriage. I don’t have either right now, though I have tried to learn from each that I have had. Right now, I’m on my own and I’m happy. Happy to have a job, a roof over my head, a great kid, great friends. So no regrets. And this is not a time to look back (something might be gaining on me, besides weight). It’s a time to look forward. I’m happy to be turning 50 in 20 shopping days. You can even get me a bouquet of prunes, though I would prefer a bouquet – that is, 12 – of Belgian White Shock Top in bottles.
There is a perplexing situation surrounding the Liberals hinging the economic future of the province on liquefied natural gas to the tune of more than $400 billion in revenue. The importance of natural gas to the Liberal government first made light during the election campaign, when the Liberals promised to clear the provincial debt and establish a Prosperity Fund with natural gas royalties and revenues. Since winning the election, the Liberals have continued to rest much of the province’s future economic success on the natural gas industry. In fact, Clark is heading out on tour, to essentially promote the natural gas industry in B.C. With this kind of talk, the province is counting its chickens before they’ve hatched. The problem is, the natural gas industry in British Columbia is in its infancy. Of the handful of proposed liquefied natural gas plants alluded to in the Prosperity Fund calculations, three have received export permits, although clients have yet to be secured, and only two have passed environmental reviews. Then there are the pipelines needed to get the natural gas to the LNG plants, most of which have not passed through the environmental assessment stage. But Clark is going out there, telling the world B.C.’s natural gas industry will be providing clean energy to the rest of Canada and the world, although environmental groups dispute the “clean” part. Hinging the province’s future on what can best be called unhatched chickens is not very prudent. Unless, of course, Clark knows something about the regulatory process she isn’t sharing right now. —Penticton Western News

tall meters I read with interest the letter from Kim Laporte and I concur. Did a giant install those new parking meters? I cannot see the screen at all and have to take it on faith that the money I deposit is actually giving me time. And in this town, it has happened more than once that a meter is broken and has not given me the time I’ve paid for. So I’m the kind of gal who likes to check. Every time I put money in, I jump, literally jump up, to check if it has given me the time I’ve paid for. Thankfully, I am usually in sneakers. I’d hate to be doing that in heels. And heels, unless they were six inches high, would not help me see the screen. As it is, jumping barely helps me see the screen. I’d like to meet the jolly-green wise guy whose bright idea it was to install these meters. Bridget trainor evidence missing Lorne Hunter’s letter concerning GM agriculture has many misleading arguments. He begins by presenting an argument about the rigorous scrutiny that Health Canada and the CFIA use to “assure” us that the
Thanks for improvements but...
o begin, I'd like to say a big thanks to B.C. Transit. Over the past few years. there has been much debate over adding buses on the 90 route from Vernon to UBCO in Kelowna. They have managed to fix most of the problems and it is much simpler for us commuters to get to school at a reasonable time. However, there are still a few main issues that I would like to bring forth as suggestions. First of all, a beautiful new highway was built by the province between Oyama and Winfield. Though many do not know, the 90 route bus still uses the old road to Kelowna which now has a reduced speed limit of 50

GMOs are safe. What is missing is actual scientific evidence concerning the safety of these foods. What can be found are “assurances” from agricultural/chemical companies that their products are safe, but scientific procedures are not released for independent replication of the studies, a necessity for scientific proof. He states specifically that “new traits cannot be transferred to other plants,” which is wrong. Companies have sued Canadian farmers for growing GM food for the very reason that their crops were crosscontaminated by other GM crops (Google Percy Schmeiser). If there have been “trials and scrutiny,” references and sources need to be supplied, otherwise trial and scrutiny does not stand up to scientific principles. The rest of the article is mostly about the economic impact of GM agriculture in Canada. Yes it is large, but when a large corporation is willing to adjudicate its way to a position of strength, it can corner a large share of the market. Regardless, agriculture has been and always will be a large part of our economy. It is not the GMOs that have necessarily made it so large. People need to eat. Agriculture will always be with us.

utes at least. The reason for this ties into the second problem. Our bus needs to make stops in Oyama.
Among Hunter’s economic arguments he introduces the use of glyphosate “for single-spray weed control” meaning that it kills everything natural but not the GM crop. Even this is wrong as there is scientific evidence that a variety of weeds have become glyphosate resistant. Other problems have been recognized with GM crops such as soil degradation, water depletion, and the economic parameters of being locked into the agri-corporations regulations and rules for supplying seed, fertilizers, pesticides, and ultimately marketing. He argues that “conventional agriculture has coexisted with organic agriculture” implying that organic agriculture is not conventional, although thousands of years of human agricultural history demonstrates otherwise. He argues that organic agriculture is a “marketing tool," which it is. Yet at the same time, all GM advocates I have encountered fully resist having any of their crops or products labelled as GMO. If Mr. Hunter is so proud of GM crops, surely he would want to label them all boldly in order to compete with the “conventional organic crops.” Let the consumer make the choice. His final argument is also wrong
My question is why one main bus stop has not yet been created for Oyama or why they do not have their own bus? Also, by the time we arrive in Oyama, the bus is usually full. My very last complaint is perhaps the most important to me. It would be phenomenal if B.C. Transit added a 10 a.m. bus to the 90 route. It seems silly to complain after B.C. Transit has solved so many problems already, but many of us start classes at 11:30 a.m. and it is exceptionally frustrating to have to board the 9 a.m. bus to make that class. All of these are suggestions that I hope will be at least taken into consideration. candice lipski
when he says an anti GM resolution “is a direct threat to the stability of our provincial agricultural economy.” No, it might threaten the stability of the agri-businesses but in no way will it threaten agriculture as a whole. There are many “conventional” farmers whose produce would rapidly fill the shelves emptied of the vastly overrated GMOs, making for a healthier and safer environment and food platter. GM crops have not increased crop yields except as a result of increased planting, not increased yield per acre. They tend to be monocrop agriculture, denying the variability that has been the mainstay of conventional agriculture for thousands of years. GM foods have not proven to be beneficial to anyone but the agribusinesses. Jim miles great care I would like to give my wholehearted support to all of the staff at the Polson special care unit. My husband was there for a long period of time and always received excellent care from all of the staff. I never once doubted their ability. The staff were always very professional, caring, understanding and well informed to care for
people with dementia in all stages. They always showed their love and concern for my husband as well as for me and were there for all. Again, I give my utmost support to all of the staff at Polson special They are special. clara grootveld

down 32nd Street (Highway 97) from 43rd to 39th avenues from 2 to 4 p.m. after a construction backhoe ripped open a natural gas line. ““It’s the main route through town so it’s very busy there,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. Flagpersons prevented vehicles from entering the impacted area and long lines of motorists made their way on to side streets. The incident occurred when a backhoe came into contact with a three-inch gas line at the old Waddy’s restaurant site. “That’s a fairly large gas line,” said Jack Blair, Vernon deputy fire chief. Firefighters were on scene trying to ensure that a spark from equipment didn’t ignite the blaze and create an explosion and fire. “There is always the potential on construction sites,” said Blair. “When there is a rupture, the gas can also follow the line into the building and create pockets.” The incident wrapped up shortly before 4 p.m. “As soon as Fortis crews arrived on scene, they shut it off,” said Blair of the natural gas.

Boil water alert for Oyama Morning Star Staff
The District of Lake Country has upgraded the Oyama Lake source from a water quality advisory to a boil water notice. Test results returned Wednesday on water quality samples taken Tuesday showed the presence of bacteriological indicator organisms. Water technicians were able to immediately switch the system over to the Kalamalka Lake water source. “We are taking this very seriously,” said Michael Mercer, director of engineer- Michael Mercer ing and operations. “Due to the numerous rain events in the past week, the resulting decrease in water quality has made the chlorine residual a challenge to maintain, so we have been monitoring the
water quality frequently and increasing the dosage of chlorine. However, because it takes 24 hours to get test results, we feel it is crucial to issue an immediate boil water notice to everyone on the system.” There are about 270 properties in the affected area and sensitive customers on the district’s registry have been notified personally by phone and e-mail. Regular showering and irrigation should flush the old water from service lines and dead spots and the treated Kalamalka Lake water is already throughout the system. “We will continue to closely monitor the water quality,” said Greg Buchholz, operations manager. “We urge residents that rely on the Oyama Lake source not to drink any water without boiling it first until otherwise notified; and anyone that is feeling ill should see their doctor immediately.” No updates on water quality were known by press time.

the Vernon Recreation Complex. The Halina Seniors Centre is now open and the complex will reopen for program registration and non-aquatic programs Monday. â€œOpening of the aquatics centre will be delayed by an additional week, with regular public swims and aquatics programming to start-up Oct. 7,â€? said Doug Ross, recreation services director.
The complex was shut down Aug. 26 for renovations and annual maintenance. But a flood in the basement Sept. 2 delayed some of the work. Ross believes visitors will find some exciting improvements upon reopening of the facility. â€œThey include a new dehumidification system within the aquatics centre, new overhead and in-pool LED lighting and a renovated
registration office with an accessible counter,â€? he said. Ther Halina Seniors Centreâ€™s entrance now has accessible automated sliding doors. Residents can check out the improvements and celebrate the pool reopening by attending swims Oct. 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. and Oct. 13 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. â€œThe first 300 people at each event will swim for free,â€? said Ross.

Great Pumpkin run takes root Morning Star Staff
Armstrong’s popular Harvest Pumpkin Festival now includes a walk and run to support local groups. The Great Pumpkin Walk/Run is slated for Thanksgiving Monday, Oct. 14. “This is an event for all age,” said chairperson Ron Neden. The event will support the Armstrong food bank (Okanagan Boys and Girls Club) and the Glad Tidings Church’s Brown Bag Lunch Program. The entry fee is $10 for individuals and $30 for families.

City seeks grant richard rolke Morning Star Staff
The City of Enderby hopes to plug into some high-wattage funding. Council will apply for a B.C. Hydro grant to place power lines underground on Mill Avenue, from George to Maud streets, and on Belvedere Street, from Cliff to Mill avenues. “It gets rid of unsightly poles and cleans things up,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. The cost of the project is Howie Cyr not known at this time as B.C. Hydro must determine those figures. But if Hydro agrees to the grant, it would provide one-third of the money while the city would be responsible for the remaining two-thirds. “These roads are within the commercial core and close to a lighted intersection which makes tem high-profile candidates suitable for this kind of beautification,” said Tate Bengston, the city’s deputy chief administrative officer. If the project proceeds, it would occur during sewer and road upgrades in 2014.

Caches hidden locally Morning Star Staff
A partnership between Backroad Mapbooks and the provincial government is bringing geo-caching to 18 of B.C.’s recreation sites, including one in the North Okanagan. A total of three cache containers have been hidden in each of B.C.’s six regions, plus two bonus caches for a total of 20 caches. The caches are named and hidden under three specific themes: on the trail, on the road and on the water. For the Okanagan, the water theme is centred on the Evely Recreation Site on Westside Road. “Geo-caching is a game that crosses provincial and national borders,” said Steve Thompson, forests minister. “This program provides another incentive for people to enjoy our beautiful forests at our recreation sites and trails.” To find out more about the program, including instructions and which recreation sites and trails are taking part, visit www. geocaching.com/adventures/geotours/backroadmapbooks The object of the tour is to find all the hidden caches and swap and collect items inside the containers. As you collect different treasures under each theme, you then place the corresponding stickers on a sticker collection page. Once you collect all stickers in each region, you can send them in to receive the Backroad Mapbooks regional geocoin. “Celebrating 20 years is a big milestone for Backroad Mapbooks,” said Chris Taylor, vicepresident of the company. “What better way for us to celebrate than to continue to find other ways to promote Canada’s great outdoors.”

books, skateboards, knick-knacks, dull knives, binoculars and telescopes, musical instruments, torn or

Vernon In Transition, in co-operation with the Okanagan Science Centre. “We throw away vast amounts of stuff in Canada. Things that are barely used get tossed when a simple repair could be the fix,” said event spokesperson Bill Darnell. “The trouble is, lots of people have forgotten that they can repair things themselves or no longer know how. “Society doesn’t always show much appreciation for the people who still have this practical fix-it knowledge.” Handy people are getting involved to help fix stuff and will share and teach this practical knowledge. The Repair Café teaches people to see their possessions in a new light and to appreciate their value. Darnell said the Repair Café helps change people’s mindset. “This is essential to kindle people’s enthusiasm for a sustainable society that can start to see everything as less disposable,” he said. “But most of all, the Repair Café just wants to show people how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is.” Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things together. You will find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need on clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys and more. You will also find repair specialists such as electricians, knife and tool sharpeners, seamstresses, carpenters and bicycle mechanics. Visitors bring their broken items from home and together with the specialists they start making their repairs. For informat ion, cont ac t VernonInTransition@ gmail.com.

Science series hosts ecologist
WITH THESE PRICES, OUR 2013s ARE MOVING QUICKLY.
Morning Star Staff
The Science in Society Speaker Series kicks off with ideas for new avenues for sustainable living Oct. 21. Community ecologist and environmental designer David Tracey opens the sixth annual series at 7:30 p.m. with a public talk entitled, “Feeding a Hungry Planet with Engaged Ecology.” Tracey’s talk addresses the question, “How do we feed nine billion people without cooking the Earth?” Tracey explores how a growing number of people are creating their own solutions for sustainable living that are grounded in the Earth itself. By engaging with local environments, they are diversifying food sources, redesigning David Tracey cities and rediscovering what it means to be human and a true citizen of a green planet. “There’s no simple answer to a problem as big as the world,” said Tracey. “But we do know it won’t be found through our current response based on political inertia, social alienation and personal depression.” Tracey’s talk is presented in conjunction with special sponsors that include the Food Action Society of the North Okanagan and the Sustainable Environment Network Society. Science in Society Speaker Series talks are held in the main lecture theatre at Okanagan College’s Vernon campus. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door. Advance tickets are available from the Okanagan Science Centre, call 250-545-3644 or visit www. okscience.ca. Tracey’s articles on politics and the environment have appeared in publications around the world including the International Herald Tribune, the Economist and the South China Morning Post. Tracey is the executive director of Tree City, a Vancouver non-profit group working on a Greenest City 2020 project to help people and trees grow together. The Science in Society Speaker Series is a joint project of the Okanagan Science Centre and Okanagan College and is sponsored by the Pacific Inn and Suites, Cooper’s Foods, Starbucks Coffee, bchonda.com and The Morning Star.

Vipers crank up defence KeVin MiTcheLL Sports Editor
The amusement ride known as Junior hockey took a terrific turn for the Vernon Vipers Wednesday night at Kal Tire Place. Sitting in the Interior Conference cellar with one victory and fans already calling for a coaching change, the Vipers cranked things up and stopped the Penticton Vees 3-1 before 1,200 fans. It was Vernon’s strongest 200-foot performance of the young B.C. Hockey League season as they improved to 2-2-1-2 and moved into a share of third place with the Trail Smoke Eaters (3-3). Newbie Riley Guenther showed moxy on the battered blueline, the Vipers were tougher in the 50-50 battles, reduced their turnovers and got splendid goaltending from Austin Smith. All of the above converted in a much-needed two points as the Vipers begin a home and home series with the defending champion Surrey Eagles tonight on the coast. Surrey visits the Big Wheel Saturday night. Forward Demico Hannoun, who has struggled in stretches, parlayed his finest showing of the year into second star. Two days after being listed by NHL Central Scouting, the North Delta product pocketed two assists and tossed some heavy hits. “I’m not really too focussed on the draft right now,” said Hannoun, who was part of the Adam Tambellini blockbuster last winter. “I’m just more worried about winning games. Everyone played really well tonight. We talked about sticking to our systems and everything should work. That was our best defensive game because we were getting pucks out simply and supporting everyone.” The Vipers signed Guenther – 83 Western League games – after trading towering Spencer Morse to the West Kelowna Warriors for futures. Guenther is a highly reliable minute muncher who handles the puck and skates well. “He’s really good,” said Hannoun of the 19-year-old Guenther. “He’s got good awareness out there. He’s good moving the puck up and down the ice.” Guenther’s arrival means 20-year-old d-men Ryan Renz and Josh Bryan can forget about rushing back from injured reserve. Their absence was a wash since the Vees were without NHL-rated Jack Ramsey (at USA prospects) and 6-foot-6 Michigan giant Blake Butzow (meningitis) on the back end. “I wasn’t happy with our dee core; they didn’t play up to par tonight so it’s back to the drawing board tomorrow,” said Penticton head coach Fred Harbinson “We clearly weren’t good enough. We had a team that was probably on life support and we gave them a lot of life tonight.”
Knights select captain Morning Star Staff

Logan Mick of the Vipers heads up ice with the Vees’ Matthew Serratore in pursuit Wednesday night at Kal Tire Place. The Vipers stopped the Vees 3-1 before 1,200 fans. Brendan Persley, with his first of the season, defenceman Mark Hamilton (his second) and exVee Dexter Dancs, with his fourth of the year, and the goal of the night, handled the offence as Vernon won their first game on home ice. The Vees’ Max Coatta wired a wrister from the high slot, roof daddy, to make it 1-1 with 35 seconds left in the second period. Coatta, a Minnesota rookie, leads Penticton with six goals. Persley converted a two-on-one with Guenther late in the first period after some tight checking at both ends. Hamilton’s wrist shot from the left point deflected off a Vee and past goalie Hunter Miska for the winner midway through the third period. Hannoun and Mason Blacklock drew assists. Dancs took a drop pass from Hannoun just inside the Penticton blueline, skated to the outside, cut around a d-man and patiently waited for
Miska to make a move before hitting the empty net, with 5:46 remaining. Logan Mick and Hannoun tossed the biggest Viper checks on the night with Hannoun rocking rookie d-man Jarod Hilderman in the left corner with 2:18 to play. Viper Liam Coughlin jerseyed Patrick Sexton in the night’s only scrap, early in the third period. Hamilton, a Boston recruit, earned first star. He and the rest of the blueline brigade were solid. “All week, we’ve been preaching just be tough on those guys and the biggest thing was we were physical the whole game,” said Hamilton. “We were sticking with our guys and we worked the system really well.” Hamilton was also high on Guenther. “He helped out a lot tonight. He plays with an edge and he also chips in offensively. He had a nice assist and played really well.”

The North Okanagan Knights traded for big veteran TJ Christensen and promptly named his captain. Christensen spent three years with the Revelstoke Grizzlies, getting 15 goals, 24 points and 92 penalty minutes last season. He is a 20-year-old Salmon Arm product. “We (coaching staff) felt he has been primarily under used by Revy,” said Knights’ head coach Shawn Webb. “He’s about six-four and 220 pounds and has really good skill. We’re looking to play him with Tanner Burns and Blaine Caton and give Blaine some more room out there.” Christensen and Burns are the lone 20-year-olds with the Knights. The KIJHL allows a maximum five. Burns, Dryden Profeit and Anthony Ruggiero are the alternate captains. The Knights face seven straight road games, beginning tonight in Kamloops against the 5-0 Storm. The Armstrongbased Knights are 3-00-1 and first in the Okanagan Division of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. Their scheduled matinee against the Princeton Posse was postponed last Sunday due to a power outage at Nor-Val Sports Centre.

Sports Rocket veterans ready NFL Black Press Sports
A pair of key veterans will make a return to the Kelowna Rockets’ lineup Saturday night at Prospera Place. Defenceman Damon Severson and forward Myles Bell will make their Western season debuts as the Rockets host the Victoria Royals in the first of eight meetings between the clubs. Both draft picks of the New Jersey Devils, the 20-year-old Bell rejoined the club last weekend from the NHL team’s camp, while Severson, 19, arrived back Thursday. “We’re returning two very key pieces to our puzzle,” said Kelowna head coach Ryan Huska. “It’s good, because it’s the end of not knowing whether we were going to get these players back, and now we can move
forward as a hockey team.” Bell’s return means one overage player will have to sit out each game. The other 20 year-olds on the roster are G Jordon Cooke, F Zach Franko and D MacKenzie Johnston. One will no longer be with the club after Oct. 15, the deadline for teams to declare their three overage players. As for Victoria, the Royals are off to a slow start at 1-3-0, their latest defeat coming at the hands of Spokane, 6-1, on Wednesday. “They’re a team that’s always played with energy,” said Huska. “You look at their lineup and they have a great group of forwards. We always seem to have good games against them, so I wouldn’t expect anything different this time.”

You never wanna lose two in a row. We obviously never played our best tonight but the great thing about it is we get to come back on Friday and get things turned around in a hurry.” The Vees are rated 17th in the Canadian Junior A Hockey League. Harbinson will take 4-2 as he tries to determine the Vees’ identity. “It’s still early. It’s work in progress. There was a lot of things that we liked about this team. You lose two in a row and a couple of guys are gonna to have to realize that Junior hockey is a long haul. I think there was a little bit of backs being patted a little bit too much in town when we started 4-0. The nice thing is we had six in a row on the road and we’re 4-2 and we gotta be happy. I would have taken that at the beginning of the year. Now, we finally get a couple of home games under our belt.” Guenther, who played volleyball, hoops and lacrosse before dedicating time to hockey, was courted by a few other Junior A teams but Vernon
was a clear favourite. The Raiders released Guenther to make room for younger d-men. “Vernon is a really nice city and they have a good organization,” he said. “They’ve won six national championships and that’s no accident. They’re hosting the Royal Bank Cup so it was a pretty easy choice for me.” Guenther, a serious fan of the Kings’ Drew Doughty and the Oilers, met former Viper captain Brett Corkey at a Calgary gym and Corkey gave Vernon a five-star rating. SNAKE BITES: Both teams summoned one player from the Major Midget Okanagan Rockets. The Vipers gave 17-year-old smooth-skating D Gen Bryshun regular shifts in the opening 40 minutes, while the Vees used 15-year-old F Tyson Jost on their fourth line...Guenther’s 22-year-old sister, Chesa, works for Hockey Canada in Calgary in the human resources department...The Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup opens April 26 in Dauphin, Man. with the Manitoba and Saskatchewan champions meeting.

Matt McEachran-Law can now watch golf on his very own LED TV. The 17-year-old won his second straight Hillview Golf City Junior Championship Monday with a 2-over 58. He won last year with a 61. There was a field of 41 in the 23rd annual tournament which also serves as the club championship. McEachran Law recorded nines of 32 and a 3-under 26 to win by five strokes over Russel Day, who took the city 14-17 age group flight. Tyler Pitt, who went on to play NCAA golf in San Francisco, took the tourney three times in the 1990s, while Jarret McNeal, the 2012 club champion at Spallumcheen, won back-to-back titles in 2004-05. Brady Stead, a top provincial junior, captured the 2009-10 Hillview trophies. Jake Horsley won the first two tournaments in 1988-89. PGA Tour regular Chris Baryla was runner-up a few times while winning several age group prizes. The overall Hillview club king was Mac Gourdine with a 64. He was leading with a 3-over 30 at the turn and battled back from three doublebogeys in a row on the final nine. Gourdine pocketed a seven-inch tablet. Matt Kreutz was runner-up in the 14-17 division at 64, followed by flight club champion Scott Botwood, with a 71. Kendra Jones-Munk, 11, won the
overall girls crown with an 84. A playoff was needed in the 12-13 flight with Dexter Weiten defeating Braeden Cooper after they both shot 68. Weiten earned a Nintendo Wii. Nick Cherkowski carded a 71 for runner-up. Jon Morley topped the 11 and under flight by producing an 81, ahead of Austin Armanini, at 86 and Brayden Beacom, at 89. Brett Botwood won the nine-hole game with a 53. Jon Atmore of Hillview praised volunteers Betty Murray and Judy Wakefield for putting in countless hours and Cyril Foster, Lorraine Baryla and VantageOne Credit Union for generous sponsorship. Meanwhile, freshman Mackenzie Barrie of Vernon shot a career low 76 (+4) in Tuesday’s final round to move up nine spots to finish 50th with 243 (+27) in the Washington State Cougar Cup in Pullman. Barrie and the University of Wyoming Cowgirls used five solid efforts to overcome the rain and cold weather to remain and finish in eighth of 12 teams on the final day. Wyoming, which has played 144 holes the last six days, fired a final round 315 (+27) and ended with a three-round total of 944 (+80). Barrie carded an 86 (+13) in the final round and finished the UNM Dick McGuire Invitational with 248 (+29) on the championship course in Albuquerque the week before.

The Buy-Low Vixens opened their season with two wins and a loss at the Armstrong Women’s Hockey Tournament last weekend. While the three-time league champions were missing several key members, they played hard on and off the ice and put forward a valiant effort. However, after a 6-6 regulation and overtime draw with league rivals Shuswap Storm, the battered and bruised Vixens lost the semifinal to the Storm in a strange one-man shootout. Coralee Hamilton, Mandy Christensen, Morgan Zoethout, Amy Irvine, Derri-Ann Cooper, Jodi Tung, and Christine Bosworth supplied goals for the Vixens, while Cheryl Meier, Bernadette Dwan, Cassie Bosworth, Haley Silcocks, and Bobbie Jones set up plays and assists. Michelle Embleton and Patti Hansen were strong in net. The Vixens are grateful to coaches Pat Stewart and Leah Mulvihill and to their gratuitous long-time sponsor, Buy-Low Foods.

“TRUST THE PROS AT TIRELAND ”
VERNON 2904 - 43rd Ave, Vernon
Vernon’s Conner Kozak helped the UBC Thunderbirds win the 42nd Western Washington University Viking Men’s Invitational Tournament which ended Tuesday at the 6,561-yard Bellingham Golf and Country Club. It was UBC’s third title at the WWU event, the last being in 2007. The Thunderbirds also won in 1989. UBC, which was third after 36 holes Monday, shot 9-under par 279, the best round of the tourney, to win by five strokes at 867. Sonoma State was second at 872 (285). Tied for third at 878 were Dixie State (286) and Simon Fraser (291). Kozak shot an even-par 72 on Tuesday and ended up at 5-over 221 (74-75-72), in a tie for 16th. After the first two rounds, UBC, which was the only NAIA school in the NCAA Division II field, was in third place, a shot off the lead. A pair of Calgarians led the way for UBC. Scott Secord carded a final round 4-under 68 to tie for fourth place in the individual competition with an overall 2-under 214. Evan Holmes also earned a top-10 spot,
tying for seventh. He went 3-under today to complete the tournament with a total of 217 (75-73-69). Dixie State’s Kenny You hung on to take medalist honors, shooting 69 for a 10-under total of 206. That was one stroke better than Sonoma State’s Alex Marry (69-207). Montana State Billings’ Brad Harrelson was third at 212 (74), with Kelly and UBC’s Scott Secord (70) tied for fourth at 214. Kozak was last spring named a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) All-American. The NAIA-Men’s Golf Coaches Association All-America Committee selected three NAIA Men’s Golf AllAmerica teams, which consist of 15 individuals each. The 5-foot-11 Seaton Sonics’ grad is studying third-year kinesiology. In 21 rounds last season, including the NAIA Men’s Golf Championship, Kozak had a scoring average of 74.24. The Thunderbirds placed 10th at the season-opening Itani Quality Homes Collegiate tournament, hosted by Washington State University in Pullman, Wash. Kozak tied for 10th at 1-under 69-71-69-209.
Panthers rally by Coyotes
Morning Star Staff
The VSS Panthers rallied for a 3-2 (13-25, 15-25, 32-30, 25-11, 15-10) win over visiting George Elliot Coyotes in senior boys volleyball action Wednesday night. In the third set, Brayden Damini, Shelby Hartwig and Landon Matties all provided huge hits and powerful blocks to keep the Cats moving. Damini ended the home-opener game with a monster hit. VSS took the fourth set on consistent serves and sizzling saves from Jason Reich, strong plays from Jarrod Fisher and bold setting from Nolan Weins. In the final tiebreaker, the determined Panthers got some dynamic digs from junior call-up Eric Embleton, while Hartwig Damini and Matties dominated at the net. Meanwhile, the Fulton Maroons placed sixth out of 16 teams at the
Princess Margaret Mustangs senior girls tournament last weekend. Fulton lost to No. 1 ranked A Kelowna Christian Knights 25-17, 25-13, defeated AA Valleyview Vikings of Kamloops 25-9, 25-18 and then dropped a close final match to AA Merritt Panthers 25-23, 27-25, 12-15 in pool play. Erin Sakamoto of the Maroons was awarded the Tournament Workhorse Award with Sakamoto, Brittany Skrenek, Shaina Banta, Alexa Lewis, Nazarena Wurz and Nicole Watson taking Player of the Match awards. In their first Zone league game of the season Tuesday night in Revelstoke, the Maroons defeated the Avalanche 3-0 (25-17, 25-19, 25-17). The Maroons have been declared as an AA team this year along with Kalamalka Lakers and Revelstoke. Vernon Panthers are AAA.

It is so nice to be able to go somewhere local where you feel like people care about you, and you actually talk to a person and not a machine. Again thankyou so much for looking after us.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Revisit old ideas and peers, and you will gain insight into an opportunity. With a bit of fine-tuning, you can get your place in good shape and host an event.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Don’t fold under pressure. Make decisions for the right reason. You’ll get the most out of your day and avoid complaints if you try to do the best job possible.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Take some time out; pampering will do you good and give you a chance to let some information sink in, allowing you to make the most opportune choice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You’ll have a clear picture of what you want to see unfold today. Rely on your intuition and your keen eye to guide you through any uncertainties you face. You’ve got the right idea.
PROGRAMS START IN OCTOBER
Follow your heart and don’t be afraid to do things differently in the year ahead. Expect to face obstacles, and prepare to make life-altering choices. Concentrate on work and stabilizing your position while the trends favor you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Cast your fate to the wind. Pursue an adventure that will take your mind off your worries. Getting perspective on a confusing situation will help you see the light. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It’s not a good time to second-guess yourself. Decide what needs to be done and do it. It’s the time for action, not talking. An important relationship will require careful nurturing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You’ll see the need to bring about change, but it may not be as easy you think. Additional responsibilities will become apparent and must be dealt with first. Avoid high-pressure situations. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Plan a celebration. Delve into a creative interest or spend time with children or loved ones. Personal improvements will pay off. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Do what you can on your own in a work involvement. Avoid depending on others, and you’ll be free of disappointment. Strive for perfection by doing things the way that works best for you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) It’s a good day to spend time with friends or people who inspire and motivate you. An interesting proposal will come from an unusual source. Consider your options.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Stay on top of what’s happening at home and at work. Your reputation must be protected, and your decisions must be based on accurate information. Have your facts and figures ready. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Play the game strategically. Whether you are involved in a personal or professional situation that requires hands-on input, you must be cautious, attentive and well-informed.
Hormones Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes, weight gain, mood swings and low energy. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment uses bio-identical, plant based hormones that exactly duplicate hormones your body produces.

Bridge by Phillip Alder BE READY TO TACK IN A SUDDEN SQUALL Don Hewitt, best known for creating “60 Minutes,” said, “Let’s give the conventions back to the politicians. If we think there’s any news, we can tack it on afterward as commentary. But the conventions should be their show, not ours.” Let’s give the bidding conventions back to the experts. Let’s concentrate on the card play, winning the necessary number of tricks. Whatever conventions are used, often the same final contract will be reached. In today’s deal, South is in six no-trump. West leads the spade 10. Declarer wins with dummy’s king, then calls for a low club, getting ready to claim. But when
East discards a heart, how should South react? South opened with a strong and artificial two clubs. North responded three clubs to show five-plus clubs and eight-plus points. Then North’s four-diamond rebid was a modern convention, Redwood -- Roman Key Card Blackwood in clubs. South’s reply showed four key cards (three aces and the club king, or four aces). North put his partner into six no-trump, a wise choice given the bad club break. Declarer has only 11 top winners: three spades, four hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. If he gives West the club king now, South will be forced to find the diamond queen. Instead, he should win with his club ace,
then lead the club five. West must duck; otherwise, South claims. Then, after winning the trick with dummy’s queen, declarer plays a spade to his ace and runs the diamond jack through West. Even if the finesse loses, South has three spades, four hearts, three diamonds and two clubs for his contract. Flyers, coupons deals and money saving tips all in one place!

YOUR HEALTH President’s own story: 15 years ago I started to have arthritis, prostate, kidney, snoring and sleep apnea problems, which were all helped quickly with natural health products. I made it my life’s purpose to help others. Nick A. Jerch
NPN 80042283 Helps to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.
Truthful actual experiences from real people:
< For 40 years I had injections and drugs and finally Bell Shark Cartilage #1 spared me the endless torture I suffered day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON <My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA<I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON<For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC <I suffered for years with sciatica. I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. After this experience I realised I could help #1 many of those 5 million Canadian that suffer every day and night and I started to sell this same type of shark cartilage and helped hundreds of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. Nick A. Jerch, President of Bell Lifestyle Products. <Many people on our website write: “Can walk again for hours”;”Can climb stairs without hanging on to railing”;”First time in 15 years can sleep at night”…hundreds of testimonials all with full names and towns. Shark bones/cartilage was a previously thrown away byproduct of the food industry. No sharks are caught for their cartilage. Don’t let any activist confuse you.
As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D. NPN 80027595 Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep
What people truly experience: In most cases also stops snoring and gasping for air (sleep apnea) first night. Stops torturing your partner all night. Good sleep prevents being tired next day. Tired people work only at half capacity.< I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH < Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS < For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS <It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or #23 stoppage of breathing.

Pelmewash gets input kevin parnell Black Press
The public has had what will likely be its final chance at input for the future design of Pelmewash Parkway in Lake Country. A meeting was held Tuesday where consultants presented an overview of the project using ideas submitted by the public and the District of Lake Country for the old highway along Wood Lake. “It’s a summation of the various features or options that the public has come up with and was presented as an overview of the various features of the parkway as its proposed,” said Mark Koch, director of planning. “The idea is to come away with a concept plan for the future of the parkway.” Now that the final public consultation is over, the next step will be to present the conceptual plan to Lake Country council some time this year. “This is the concept plan, then you move forward to a more detailed design looking at how the concept can be accommodated,” said Koch.

Centre flips for its12th birthday The acrobats are really coming to town when the Vernon Performing Arts society hosts Shangri-La Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff
The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats perform dazzling feats of flexibility at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre as part of the centre 12th annual birthday bash, Friday, Oct. 4.
It couldn’t be helped when last season, Vernon Performing Arts Centre audiences were left wanting when the special presentation of Golden Dragon Acrobat’s Cirque Ziva had to be cancelled. The reason? The acrobatic troupe had occurred unavoidable complications with international travel visas and American immigration. However, the VPAC society is making up for the loss with its 12th annual birthday bash celebration, taking place at the centre Friday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. That’s when the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats, direct from the People’s Republic of China, will enter the building for the first time. And don’t worry, this troupe already has their visas officially approved, said Erin Kennedy, VPAC artistic director. Shangri-La has already made an impression, having taken the world by storm from New Zealand to Canada. The troupe is returning on their 34th North American tour and audiences should expect to be dazzled by their
multi-faceted and multicultural production. The show features dazzling acrobatic displays, formidable feats of daring and balance, explosive Kung Fu, brilliant costumes, and even a touch of Chinese comedy, said Shangri-La co-producer Cynthia Dyke-Hughes “It really is a tour de force of tumbling, gymnastics, mind-over-matter feats, balancing, and really sheer fun,” she said. “The performers give 110 per cent when they’re on the stage and the reactions of the audience are amazing.” Under the direction of Chinese acrobatic legends, the Hai Family, the company is said to flawlessly interpret the precision and grace of an art form honed by years of training and discipline. The athletes start their training at a young age and perform more than just a series of stunts. Most of their feats demonstrate the achievement of perfection through finding harmony between mind and body – an ancient concept in the Orient, said DykeHughes. “There’s a real transference of joy from the performers to the audience,” she said. “It makes all the hard work worthwhile when the audience is enjoying the show and everyone leaves the theatre with a great feeling.” Tickets for VPAC’s birthday bash with the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats are $40 for adults, $37 for seniors, and $35 for students, available at the Ticket Seller box office: online at www. ticketseller.ca, or by phone at 250-549SHOW (7469).
Jazz singer Laila Biali brings her birthday tour to Lorenzo’s Morning Star Staff
Celebrating her first-ever birthday tour, Laila Biali brings her signature genre-bending, crowd-sourced concerts to 11 cities across North America this fall. The Canada Council supported tour launches this week with debuts in Los Angeles and Bellingham before Biali heads home to Canada for performances in Nanaimo, Richmond, Vancouver, Kelowna, Enderby,
Revelstoke, Banff, and Sault Ste. Marie. Her concert near Enderby takes place at Lorenzo’s Café (in Ashton Creek) Oct. 5. Originally from North Vancouver, Biali has chosen Vancouver’s Jazz Cellar to commemorate her actual birthday (Oct. 3.) The tour will finish in Bend, Oregon, where Biali has been invited to open for Grammy winning American singer-songwriter, Marc Cohn.
An alumna of tours with Sting, Suzanne Vega, Paula Cole and Chris Botti, Biali is known for her diversity, which is showcased on her most recent release, Live in Concert. The album was recorded in front of an enthusiastic, sold-out audience at Toronto’s Glenn Gould Studio and spotlights Juno winning saxophonist Phil Dwyer (who just performed for jazz students in Vernon Tuesday), alongside Biali’s world-
class rhythm section: bassist George Koller, drummer Larnell Lewis, and percussionist Ben Wittman. This month’s issue of jazz magazine, DownBeat, praises Biali on Live in Concert for her “daring arrangements and passionate vocals,” calling her a pianistic “tour de force” as she reconstructs songs from the Great American and Canadian songbooks.

Prisoners hits a few nerves
fter a Thanksgiving dinner shared between two families, the Dovers and the Birches, two little girls go outside to play and are kidnapped. Jake Gyllenhaal is the detective assigned to the case. Hugh Jackman, Terrence Howard, Viola Davis and Maria Taylor and Howe Bello are the parents of the two missing girls, each struggling in their own way to help solve the case. When they take matters into their own hands, how far will they go to see their daughters returned safe? We say, “It’s in the slow cooker, but it’s still edible.” TAYLOR: The trailer for Prisoners spells the story out pretty clearly: Daughters get kidnapped by weirdo in a camper, Alex Jones (Paul Dano). Angry, excitable dad, Keller Dover (Jackman), gets carried away when the police are unable to keep the alleged perpetrator in custody. Then things get out of control. When I found out the film was 153 minutes, I became a little concerned that it might drag a bit, and it does. However, the richness of the film is created by the actors having the time and space to develop their characters into something palpable to the audience. HOWE: It was a fine performance by all. My concern is with how much screen time Jackman gets. He seems to be the only

Jake Gyllenhaal, as a detective, and other officers restrain angry dad Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) in Prisoners. The film is directed by Oscar nominated Quebec auteur Denis Villeneuve (Incendies). one really intent on finding the missing girls. Franklin Birch (Howard), on the other hand, seems to let Dover (Jackman) deal with Jones and slips quietly into the background for a big chunk of the movie. It seems Birch knows imprisoning and torturing Jones to try and get information where the little girls are isn’t going to win him any brownie points with the police. The two moms are nonexistent. So it turns into a bit of a one man movie and that’s a shame really, as it’s the sort of movie actors could sink their teeth into. TAYLOR: I agree Jackman carries the bulk of the film as he has the most actionable character. However, the other parents still give strong performances. Birch has to walk a tight-
rope by knowing and participating in the interrogation of Jones, despite knowing that it’s the wrong thing to do. Mrs. Birch (Davis) becomes aware of their plans and actions, then convinces her husband to let Dover “do what he has to do.” Mrs. Dover (Bello) simply chooses to take drugs and sleep through the crisis. So each of the characters deals with the situation in their own way. It’s just that Jackman, through Dover’s survivalist paranoia, takes the bull by the horns. But yet another thing that holds the film’s pace at a slow crawl is the fact that everyone’s failing to get any information about the whereabouts of the little girls. HOWE: On the plus side, it is a beautifully shot movie; very grey and bleak, giving an ominous feel to how each
character is feeling. Add the airy soundtrack and it all ties together well. It’s just that with this ensemble of talent in the cast, I expected a little bit more from them. —Taylor gives Prisoners 2.5 mumbled confessions out of 5. —Howe gives it 3 red whistles out of 5. The film is currently showing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

MGMT are daydream believers on third release
YC based psychedelic art-rock duo, MGMT pay tripped-out homage to the spirit of Syd Barrett on their third album, the self-titled MGMT.
The 10-song recording, sympathetically co-produced by Dave Fridmann, is a dense sprawl of airy sound that spills over into a hypnotic controlled mess.
The twosome, Andrew Van Wyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, allow entire songs to be buried in all manner of beautifully bent keyboard/ guitar effects. Some tracks will emerge or suggest
themselves just long enough for a tune or pattern to become legible (Alien Days) – just long enough for a glimmer of interest to appear. MGMT is ideally suited for background music – the daydream too Dean Gordon-Smith type. It’s abstract to get a firm fix on as there’s no boundaries on which to focus. But that’s not the aim here. One thing is obvious:
Western Canada’s First Single Malt Whiskey brought to you by our World Class Distillery
Must get tickets to the show I read about in Live Wire!
MGMT isn’t looking for radio play (except on satellite) or commercial acceptability. They sound like a spaced-out cousin to The Shins or Broken Bells with 1966 being year one. The swirling sound waves they generate are captivating (Mystery Disease, Introspection) and confounding (Astro-Mancy) but never pedestrian. The ozone is the destination; sound shaping is the engine; and heavy sound candy is the result. It is fluorescent cotton candy mixed with some hallucinogenic substance. They put the p in psychedelic.

In Biali’s hands, Joni Mitchell’s Woodstock, Leonard Cohen’s Show Me The Place, Ron Sexsmith’s Secret Heart and Bruce Cockburn’s Stolen Land feel remarkably natural paired with jazz standards such as The Best Is Yet to Come, Nature Boy, I’ll Never Smile Again, One Note Samba and Night and Day, as well as Imogen Heap’s breakout hit Let Go and Biali’s compositions, À la poursuite des marées, Human Laila Biali Condition, and Still The One. Another element of Biali’s live show is how she surprises her listeners with unexpected musical tools, adding unconventional instruments like the glockenspiel, ukulele and sitar to an otherwise traditional jazz ensemble. The results demonstrate Biali’s unparalleled ability to seamlessly meld multiple sounds and genres, underscoring what Sting himself says of her talent: “It is the ultimate task given to the musician, whether as a singer or instrumentalist, to create a unique signature or fingerprint that is instantly recognizable as their own,” the former lead singer of The Police is quoted as saying. “What is surprising and delightful in Laila Biali is that both as a vocalist and pianist she accomplishes this with equal aplomb. She is an exciting and unique talent, and I admire her greatly.” Biali takes the stage at Lorenzo’s Café. Saturday, Oct. 5. The café is located at 901 Mabel Lake Rd, in Ashton Creek, east of Enderby. The show starts at 8 p.m. Call 250-838-6700 for reservations.

Vernon Silver Star Quilters members Nonie Davies (left) and Debbie Giles finish up their projects for the Legacy of Quilts VIII Show.
Quilters work to leave a ‘Legacy’ Legacy of Quilts VIII Show begins today Cathi Litzenberger Special to The Morning Star
Vernon Silver Star Quilters is a diverse group of women, (and one guy) coming from all parts of the world, with a common interest in quilting and fabric. The guild’s main focus is to promote quilting through literature, workshops, seminars, demonstrations and quilt shows. Meetings are a great time to catch up with
friends, make new friends and learn new things. The guild meets twice a month on the first and third Thursday mornings. Besides business and announcements, we all enjoy workshops, trunk shows, demonstrations, and especially our regular show and tell. The guild also offers guest speakers/teachers, and two retreats a year. We have a library with a great selection of quilting books, patterns, rulers and magazines, all of which may be borrowed. There are also social days, road trips, pot lucks and several subgroups. Every third year the guild
hosts their tri-ennual quilt show (undoubtedly one of the biggest and best around), and VSSQ members — more than 130 of them — have been very busy this year preparing for their Legacy of Quilts V111 Show. This show-stopper features more than 250 quilts on display, as well as a tea room ($3 per person), a merchants’ mall, a raffle for amazing quilts, demos, and a gift shop. Funds raised from this tri-ennual event are used for providing materials for quilts which are donated to a number of community services. In the past three years, hundreds of
quilts were gifted to organizations that work with marginalized children, victims of fire, crime and accidents, disaster relief and preemies in hospitals. Funds are also donated to charities as their need is dictated, and the remainder covers operational overhead for the next three years. This year’s show runs today from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Centre. Everyone is welcome and note: husbands get in for free! For everyone else, admission is $6. Be inspired, while supporting local charities!
Women invited to join the Sacred Circle Morning Star Staff
A longtime instructor of yoga, drama and the healing arts, Dorianne Kohl offers a course for women in Armstrong, beginning Oct. 2. Dorianne Kohl “Sacred Circle” is the term she uses to describe the course. Based on the “medi-
cine wheel” teachings, the “circle” implies not only equality amongst participants, but purposeful acknowledgement of the “medicine wheel,” which is inclusive of all seasons, elements, races and ages. This teaching encourages students to include their emotional, spiritual and mental bodies (as well as the physical body) into the practice. “As a woman who has practised yoga and self-healing for more than 40 years — as well as receiving comprehensive
instruction in the art forms of healing — I am continually amazed at the difference this practice has made in my life,” said Kohl. The course will be held at the Zion United Church Hall, Armstrong, Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. from Oct. 2 to Nov. 27. Preregistration is required, along with a commitment for the course. To register, please call Kohl at 250-546-9886. Students will need a mat, blanket and comfortable clothing.

Jeremiah: A type of Christ: His life openly sought by his own city, plotted against, defamed, reproached, derided all day long, cursed by the people, accused falsely, put in a dungeon, placed in chains, put on trial for the Truth; placed in the stocks, imprisoned, given over to death, showing the pattern of Yahweh’s suffering servant to come – the Lord Jesus Christ, as He was cursed, whipped, placed in chains, But a man of importance before kings; a type of the suffering Messiah.
ear Annie: I have been married for 15 years. My husband and I still live under the same roof (for convenience), but we have drifted our separate ways. The problem is,
Wouldn’t you want your child to learn
THE SECRETS OF SUCCESS? We’ll teach your child one of those secrets and much more during our Learn-To-Earn Program. In a world of immediate gratification, it’s difficult to teach children the value of working towards goals and the satisfaction of a job well done. Our Learn-To-Earn Program focuses on reinforcing traditional success values, such as perserverance and trying one’s best, which are also martial arts values.

Counselling can help our teenage son cannot stand to be in the same room with his father. All they do is argue, and my husband pouts like a baby, bottom lip and all. I have asked our son to try to ignore Dad in order to keep the peace, but it is getting worse. This man, who wanted to have a child, has spent little time with our son over the years. When I was working and he had to watch our son, he would have his parents come over, and then he and his father would leave, letting my motherin-law babysit. On weekends, he managed never to be home. Now that our son is older, my husband thinks he has a personal slave to do all the yard work and dishes and put his stuff away when he comes home. Also, he and Grandpa have no qualms about pointing out what this kid does wrong, badgering him about it and never mentioning the things he does well.
Kathy Mitchell & MarcySugar I have had it. I don’t want my son to grow up to be like his father. Should I stay here, or should I take my son and leave? — Fed Up in Pennsylvania Dear Fed Up: There is a lot going on here. You and your husband obviously no longer connect, and your son may be acting out his frustrations with the situation. Dad has no idea how to communicate with his son. Neither you nor your son is happy with Dad. If the marriage is dead, please stop hanging around the corpse. Your son will benefit from an emotionally stable home. Speak with a lawyer before

deciding which of you should move out. All of you would benefit from counseling, and we hope you will consider it. Dear Annie: I started dating “Zach” 18 months ago and have been living with him for almost a year. Things are perfect except for one thing. Before we met, Zach dated another girl for three years before me. She was horrible and hurtful toward him. When I began seeing Zach, his ex started harassing me to the point where I had to take out a restraining order against her. The problem is, Zach’s older sister is still in constant contact with the ex. She always talks about her in front of me and even allows the ex to babysit her children. She often invites the ex to go places with her and posts pictures of the two of them on Facebook. Zach has had many fights with his sister about this, telling her how hurtful it is to both of us, yet she still continues to do it. I’ve tried everything possible to make his sister like me, but I can’t keep competing with the ex. It’s causing a strain between Zach and his sister. I don’t have issues with anyone else in his family. What can I do to get the ex out of the picture permanently? — The Current Woman in His Life Dear Current: Zach’s sister is doing this for one of two reasons: Either she likes getting your goat, in which case, your response is
very gratifying for her. Or, she doesn’t want you to dictate who her friends can be. Either way, your response should be the same: Ignore it. If her main purpose is to annoy you, she will become bored with the tactic when she sees it has no effect. And if she is truly friends with this woman, the relationship is not your business. The added benefit of ignoring it is that Zach will be grateful. You already have his total support, and that is what counts. Dear Annie: This is for “Torn Grandma,” who babysits for her granddaughter who may be allergic to Grandma’s dog. Perhaps Grandma could watch her granddaughter in the child’s home or in a dog-free room that has an air filter running daily. The child should be tested to be sure it’s the dog that is truly the cause of her reaction. — Your Local Veterinarian Dear Annie: I’m responding to the comment from “Germantown, Tenn.,” about store employees being forced to stand all day. That’s part of their job description and how products get to the shelves. In the store that I manage, the older employees never have complained about standing all day. — The Manager Dear Manager: The fact that your employees don’t complain doesn’t mean they aren’t suffering. Standing is OK if you get to walk around, but otherwise, it is hard on the feet and back.

Regional BoaRd HigHligHts – septemBeR 2013 park project Funding The Regional Board supports adding previously approved funding from one Regional Park project to another. The $123,600 approved to replace the Cottonwood Bridge this year will instead be allocated along with $150,000 from the Federal Government Community Infrastructure Program to replace sections of the North Breakwater at Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park. no land swap The Regional Board will not pursue further discussions with BC Parks regarding the possibility of a land swap within Fintry Provincial Park to facilitate possible operation of a historical working farm. BC Parks and the Friends of Fintry Society have indicated that they would rather investigate heritage and recreational revenue stream opportunities and that the working farm idea is not feasible. special events permit Changed The Regional Board has approved a request from the Kelowna Dirt Bike Club to change the date of one of the events previously approved for its Special Events Permit Noise bylaw exemption.

B.C. communities are again seeking federal and provincial help to keep Canada goose population under control by killing geese that are fouling beaches and parks. Delegates at last week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention endorsed a resolution from Osoyoos, to address a problem that plagues many B.C. communities. Thompson Nicola Regional District director Tim Pennell told the convention that beaches around area lakes are being “destroyed” by geese, and their droppings are triggering beach contamination warnings that affect tourism and local residents’ recreation. The Osoyoos resolution notes that addling goose eggs has had limited effect, and hunting regulations prevent culling in recreation areas. It asks for the Canadian Wildlife Service to issue more kill permits. Failing that, they want the province to issue permits. In 2011 the UBCM asked senior governments for help controlling geese in parks, and the B.C. government said kill permits are federal jurisdiction. Geese and their droppings are a chronic problem in other areas. A local resident wrote to the Abbotsford News in July, complaining that “there is so much goose poop on the paved trails that it’s like navigating through a minefield.” On Vancouver Island, golf courses hire dog handlers to chase geese off fairways, sometimes shifting the problem to the next golf course. Farmers also struggle to protect crops from geese and deer, which have proliferated as hunting has declined. Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray raised a related concern at the UBCM convention. B.C. is considering changes to testing procedures for recreational waters, based on Health Canada guidelines that recommend beach water advisories based on a single sample of 400 E.coli per 100 ml. Gray said depending on a single sample could trigger significantly more beach water advisories, often based on a transitory visit by geese, without significant increase in risk to human health.

Okanagan College students enrolled in the mechanical building trades got some heavy industry backing with the announcement of a new award from the Southern Interior Construction Association. SICA is contributing $17,500 over the next five years to create the SICA Patrick Waunch Award. “This annual award of $3,500 will make it easier for students to get their certificates in refrigeration and air conditioning, sheet metal work or plumbing,” said Bill Everitt, SICA chief operating officer. “We also wanted to take the opportunity to create something that would recognize Patrick Waunch who has contributed so much to this industry.” Waunch, Rambow Mechanical president, has played an instrumental role in SICA, sitting on the board for nearly two decades. A holder of Red Seal tickets in four mechanical trades, Waunch is a member of Okanagan College’s program advisory committee, and has held numerous roles at the provincial and national level. A past-chairperson of the B.C. Construction Association, Waunch currently serves as chairperson of the Trade Contractors Council for the Canadian Construction Association. “This award is very generous,” said Brad Oliver, chairperson of the mechanical building trades department at Okanagan College “It will help somebody not so fortunate to get into the trade and maybe later think about giving something back, like Patrick has.”

Doug Fairweather & Audrey Sutton Audrey and Doug have owned the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy (OVCMT) in Downtown Vernon since 1994. Doug is the director and an instructor at OVCMT. Audrey retired from participation at the college in January 2012. The theme of “Enjoy the Journey” is dear to both of our hearts as it is a wonderful reminder of the gift of each day and the precious opportunity to live it with joy, heart fullness and engage in service to others. We are grateful to be able to provide service to the Greater Vernon community at OVCMT through a number of student outreach programs including Special Needs clinic, Maternity Massage, the Peer massage in elementary schools and Sports Massage. Doug also presently enjoys active participation in the Downtown Vernon Association and Audrey volunteers in one of the Vernon literacy programs and spontaneously participates in other community projects when possible. We are delighted and honoured to participate in this fabulous fundraiser for hospice and are having great fun developing our dance skills under the most heartful and skillful “tutelage” of Lorna.

Agenda looks to economic opportunities Morning Star Staff
The Business Council of B.C. and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce have released the final report of the B.C. Agenda for Shared Prosperity. The report details the results of a year-long process that puts forward 60 recommended actions and policies aimed at improving opportunities for economic participation for all British Columbians. “While British Columbia’s economy as a whole has done relatively well in recent times, the reality is that not all British Columbians are sharing in its success and there is an urgency to act so that future generations may realize the economic and social opportunities ahead,” said Greg D’Avignon, BCBC president. “The recommendations and actions emerging from this process are unique for the business community and represent an attempt to draw a stronger, more collaborative, connection between growing the economic pie and the corresponding social and community benefits that come from a robust economy.” From the process, three key themes emerged that served as the basis for the recommendations included in the report. These themes were: 1. Creating Prosperity: in order to enable shared prosperity, there is a prerequisite need to create prosperity through a strong economy that drives investment, job creation and improved living standards. 2. Participating in Prosperity: there is an ongoing and challenging need to ensure the benefits of prosperity have broad reach – benefitting as many as possible with a realistic view towards the policies available to deliver a stronger sense of shared prosperity for the province. 3. Improve the public discourse: to achieve objectives identified through the B.C. Agenda process, the
public discourse – how we arrive at actions to move forward – needs improvements.
“British Columbia’s businesses, all types, all sizes and in all communities, stand ready
to build a stronger connection between business activities, the economy and British
Columbians’ daily lives,” said John Winter, B.C. chamber president. “By working togeth-
er on this unique initiative, we’re looking to better position B.C. to capture future oppor-
tunities and expand the prosperity British Columbians enjoy today.”
