Realtors ready to spread holiday cheer richard rolke Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan residents can spread the joy of Christmas simply by opening their door. The 36th annual Realtors Food Drive takes place Wednesday in Greater Vernon, Armstrong, Enderby and Lumby. “Community support is always really positive,” said Dawn Taylor, an event organizer. Realtors will be going door-todoor in neighbourhoods and collecting donations of non-perishable food items for the local food banks. Other groups will also be providing assistance during the event, including financial institutions, individual families and the North Okanagan branch of the Early Childhood Educators of B.C. “We want to give back to the community and there is a significant need in the community,” said Taylor. Residents are asked to turn their outside lights on and place their bag of food on the front step for collection. The donations help the food banks with Christmas hampers and

fill the shelves well into the new year. “This food drive is really essential for our ongoing operations,” said David MacBain, community ministries director for the Salvation Army food bank in Vernon. “It’s something the realtors have a heart for and we appreciate their kindness.” It’s anticipated that the Vernon food bank will hand out about 850 Christmas hampers this year. “With the recession, our numbers climbed dramatically and while there has been a slight decrease, it hasn’t dropped to pre-recession levels,” said MacBain. Among the food items being sought during the Realtors’ Food Drive are rice, pasta, canned meat and fish, canned fruit and vegetables, tomato products, beans, flour, sugar, cereal, peanut butter, jam, oatmeal and canned or powdered milk. If homes are missed during Wednesday’s food drive, residents can call their local real estate office and someone will pick up their donation.

“We need to be proactive to help business,” she said. Access management is one of the tools the ministry and the city have used to keep traffic moving more efficiently on Highway 97. “Access management restricts left-turn movements into minor side streets and properties along a corridor by the construction of either a centre median or raised right-in, right-out islands in the side street or property driveways, but permits left turns at purpose built intersections,” states a staff report. City staff support the installation of the median. “Due to the road safety benefits of the recent left-turn restrictions, staff do not recommend supporting the Best Western’s request to have the median removed or their access relocated,” states an administration

report to council. Another issue that O’Keefe wants to see addressed is the lack of left-turn signals at highway intersections. “If the ministry won’t put in left-turn signals, at what point do we consider doing it ourselves?” she said.

Glass plant action sought

Vernon Punjabi Heritage Society is raising funds for the Salvation Army Food Bank

A lack of progress at Lavington’s old glass plant has one politician questioning why more isn’t being done. “I’d like to know what’s been thought of, what’s been done,” said Coun. Maria Besso. Following a couple of conferences and tours of energy facilities, Besso is eager to see something similar done at the Lavington facility which has Maria Besso sat empty for several years. “There are incredible ideas that could be applicable to the glass plant. “I’m wondering why nothing is happening at the Lavington glass plant...everything’s there.”

Although industrial land may be sought, the large portion of land in Lavington presents some challenges for potential buyers. “There may be people looking for industrial land but they may not necessarily want 91 acres,” said Mike Reiley, Coldstream’s director of development services. There is also the issue of an environmental study needed at the site. “Before they get the environmental cleanup done there’s not much they can do there,” said Mayor Jim Garlick. Any attempt to obtain a development permit would require an environmental study, and potential purchasers are leery if a study hasn’t been done beforehand. “There’s some challenges around it,” said Garlick. “Also the owner has to take those initial steps to do it and hasn’t been really engaged.”

Mill workers back strike ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Local mill workers have sent a loud message to their employers. Members of United Steelworkers Local 1-423 voted 97.5 per cent in favour of strike action to back contract demands, though the local president is hopeful a new collective agreement will be reached this week. The numbers include about 500 North Okanagan workers at Tolko’s sawmill and plywood plant in Armstrong, veneer mill in Lumby and forest techs and road crews that work out of Tolko’s Lumby office. The main demand from the workers involves shift scheduling. “The employer is looking for shift schedules in our industry that gives up consecutive days off,” said Armstrong’ Pat McGregor, president of Local 1-423. “That is a huge issue. It’s the No. 1 issue our members are telling us they do not want to give up as part of our lifestyle.” The steelworkers are in mediation talks currently with the Interior Forest Labour Relations Association which represents the member companies in bargaining. Those include Tolko, West Fraser, Aspen Planers and Weyerhauser. A wage structure has already been agreed to. The sides returned to the table at the B.C. Labour Board Thursday in Vancouver. “We hope to have a deal Thursday or Friday,” said McGregor on Wednesday afternoon. “With a strong strike mandate, we feel we can reach an agreement with the employers over the next few days. We’re making progress. “The employers needed a little more of a push to get off the, we call them, split shifting schedules, and this mandate should be more than ample to send a clear message to the employer what the membership wants.” The local steelworkers’ collective agreement expired June 30.

Credit card meters yanked downtown

Swiping a credit card to pay for parking is disappearing, but so may some vital information. Vernon council has agreed not to proceed with the installation of credit card capable meters after a trial period indicated they weren’t popular. However, there could be some implications when it comes to making future parking decisions. “We were going to be able to judge the hours of use (with the credit card meters) and there would be reports Mary-Jo O’Keefe on when we should increase prices,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. Instead, that information will now have to be gathered through more time-consuming surveys. Council opted not to purchase credit card meters because during the three-month trial period, only 1.68 per cent of transactions were credit. It would have cost the city $67,780 to purchase the meters and there would have been annual operating costs of $25,000. During the trial period, two companies provided the meters so the city could study their effectiveness.

Baby on board

ome random thoughts about fatherhood, a fraternity I am blessed to have entered a few short weeks ago. I am incapable of continuous, coherent thought due to a lack of sleep, so random is the best I’ve got. First of all, whoever coined the phrase “sleep like a baby” either: a) was never a parent; b) got incredibly lucky; or c) was rich enough to afford a nanny. Our little fella (he’s actually not so little: he weighed in at nine pounds, 15 ounces), will be a month old on Monday, and he can already power nap five hours in a stretch, but there are nights when sleep is elusive and there’s not a whole lot you can do Graeme Corbett about it. If he’s been fed and burped, and his diaper has been checked, and he is still fussy, what more can you do? You can rock him, dance with him and sing to him (he loves Raffi) and sometimes he still wails. That’s what babies do. The one thing I have found that works “nearly” all the time is stairs. If I go up and down our steps a few times slowly, it’s usually lights out. My better half has the right of it. If it were left up to men, global overpopulation wouldn’t be an issue. Not many guys I know could endure what I witnessed during the delivery of our son (while I was cheering feebly from the sidelines), something Terryn did with no anesthetic. I realize there’s no gold star for natural birth, but I’m thinking most women would be screaming for an epidural with a baby that size. A guy will happily endure –20 C to watch a football game, as my brother did to watch our beloved Riders in the CFL Western Final in Calgary two weeks ago, but it’s amazing how quickly the words ‘centimetres’ and ‘dilation’ can derail the male psyche.

Our midwife rocks. Jeanette was nothing short of sensational in providing us wisdom, compassion, friendship and support throughout the entire pregnancy. She has been with us pretty much from the time Terryn showed me that stick with the pretty blue stripe on it, through to present day. People say strange things during labour. One of the lasting impressions we will have of Jeanette, and one we still laugh about at our follow-up visits, happened late in the delivery. Terryn had worked tremendously hard to get to that point, and was a little leery heading into the final stage of pushing. Sensing her hesitancy, Jeanette, perhaps a little caught up in the moment, put on her coach’s cap and gave a poignant pep talk. “You can do this Terryn, you’re a (expletive) jock!” That was followed immediately by a sheepish “Did I just say that?” One of our farming friends (he runs an organic dairy) leaned on his agricultural expertise to correctly pick the sex of our child. He was driving through Armstrong around the time of our due date, which triggered him to call us to see if our baby had been born yet. When we told him it hadn’t, he assured us it would be a boy. Why? Because cows who go past their due date tend to give birth to male calves. If they’re early, it’s usually a girl. I’m not sure what to make of his comparison, but he was right. 2013 is the year of the baby boy, at least in our circle of friends. We have four close sets of friends (Eric and Carly, Simon and Becky, Nat and Noel, and Chris and Maxine), all of who gave birth to boys this year, including one set of twins. We were the last, and towards the end I was seriously wondering if our baby would break the trend. Instead, we ended up with Narayan (pronounced Na-Ryan) Coop Lucas Thachuk Corbett. He has only been in my life a few short weeks, but he has already captured my whole heart. I can’t wait to get to know him better.

North Okanagan residents are known for their generosity and compassion and there’s no better example of that than the Realtors’ Food Drive. A tradition for 36 years, the Wednesdat event supports the food banks in Greater Vernon, Armstrong, Enderby and Lumby. “This food drive is really essential for our ongoing operations,” said David MacBain, with the Salvation Army in Vernon and Enderby. And there’s no question those non-profit operations are under pressure. The start of the recession in 2008 led many residents to seek assistance for the first time, and conditions haven’t improved yet for many. In fact, some residents face the tough choice of paying the rent or buying groceries. It’s expected the Vernon food bank will hand out about 850 hampers this Christmas. That’s a staggering statistic but what’s more amazing is the willingness of residents to help their neighbours. Bags and bags of food will be collected during the Realtors Food Drive Wednesday. And the realtors and supporters make it easy to give. Just be prepared with a bag or two of food donations and leave it on your front step for collection. If canvassers don’t show up, call your local realty office Thursday for pick-up. Of course there will also be other groups organizing campaigns for local food banks this holiday season. Christmas is a wonderful time of the year and it reminds all of us of how we can make a difference in the lives of others. Make sure you embrace the spirit and do your part. You will feel better for it.

Plan provides a voice

I

n response to Pamela Owen’s letter regarding economic development and the official community plan. The guiding principles of the OCP were identified by the residents of Vernon. It’s the voice of the community communicating its collective goals and objectives, including economic development. The OCP doesn’t need to provide the answer to the economic question. That is up to the City of Vernon’s economic development strategy (I encourage Pamela to read their guidelines). But it does answer the question of where development will go and how it will fit with the community. It is important to identify what types of development we would like to see here. However, the best economic development strategy you can have as a city is to become the type of place where people want to be. Investment in development, such as alternative transportation options, pro-

SCRAP THE ALC I couldn’t agree more with Pamela Owen (Morning Star letters Nov. 3) that economic development must surface as the top priority in the pending review of our official community plan. The substantial loss of employment in Vernon, as shown in recent census data, and the growing number of for lease signs that continually appear throughout the business district leaves nothing but a constant pall over the city. It was with great interest, therefore, that I see a proposal to effectively dismantle the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC), creating two economic zones that would now manage land use decisions in B.C. And, in the case of the Okanagan, pass more control for community growth to local government. I, for one, couldn’t be happier. In my view, the ALC is the single most cynical piece of legislation ever enacted in our province. Firstly, it has little precedence within North America.

R #

tecting significant natural areas, clear and consistent development guidelines and a strong arts community, are key compo-

An area that houses so much developed and undeveloped agricultural land that any concern for feeding our populations given modern farming techniques is hardly of any long term importance. And secondly, the large acreages removed for port development in the Lower Mainland were, with the exception of one vote, unanimously supported in the legislature by the NDP, which originally crafted the ALC mandate. This can hardly be characterized as solving a pressing human need or even a serious core program that engendered unanimous and well meaning party support. This says nothing as to the arbitrary way it was carried out. It’s a band wagon I’m simply not on and see very little in the mandate as being remotely close to sacrosanct. It is obvious to even the most casual observer that the City of Vernon has effectively been hamstrung for years in creating any light-industrial or serviced com-

nents to becoming such a place. To attract families that pay taxes, we need diverse housing stock, especially that

mercial zoning given the stranglehold the ALC has on land within the city boundary. Moreover, there are several large properties with water, sewer, school and public transportation services in place that are minutes from downtown and could easily be developed as single-family affordable housing, another high priority identified in the OCP but effectively stifled by the ALC. This is not an excuse for past inactivity. It’s little wonder that Vernon’s economic atrophy continues when our administrators appear to have little appetite to take on the ALC even in the face of pressing community need. Our current team seem to spend inordinate amounts of time on small, low-impact items such as regulating idling vehicles, sponsoring Pace cars or giving tax dollars away through special bequests. This may sound somewhat insensitive and overstated, but my money is on an OCP update that is riddled with the same words that rendered the last attempt into a

young and upwardly mobile people can afford. The problem with Vernon’s last bout of economic development was that it was based almost entirely on single-family, mid-to-high-cost residential development. Very little was done for downtown infrastructure or attracting decent-paying long term employment opportunities. By committing to and implementing the OCP guidelines, we are slowly but surely moving towards becoming a place where people want to move and raise their families. The numerous visitors’ letters to the paper this past summer praising our beautiful, revitalized downtown were great to read. I hope that Pamela and the Big Red committee can see how the OCP guidelines will assist in attracting the type of people and jobs that our community so greatly needs. H. Fraser

tome of public optics - a document that sounds good but, as Clara says, “where’s the beef?" What we need to see is a bold statement of proposed zoning changes and a council that can work with what looks like a new provincial mandate to change gears and get Vernon’s economic development permanently out of reverse.

College enrolment up Morning Star Staff

Okanagan College is reporting a 21 per cent increase in enrolment in trades and apprenticeship programs this fall. Numbers drawn from the fall enrolment report show 5,853 students taking courses as of midSeptember, compared to 5,851 at the same time in 2012. The largest area of enrolment growth this fall is in trades and apprenticeship, with a 21 per cent increase (660 students vs. 547 in 2012). The Penticton campus saw a 9.3 per cent growth in student numbers while the Salmon Arm campus experienced a 13.9 per cent decrease and Kelowna’s enrolment was nearly steady. Enrolment in Vernon was also relatively stable – 714 students this fall compared to 717 in 2012. Health and social development programming grew by 11 per cent, to 467 students, from 422. Student numbers in arts programs across the institution dropped by about 11 per cent (1,267 students compared to 1,420).

Science, engineering technology and business program head counts are relatively stable this fall compared to last; each is within about one per cent of last year’s numbers. The number of international students grew by 11 per cent (382 vs. 344). “It’s important to understand that the fall enrolment snapshot is just that, it doesn’t tell the whole story,” said Andrew Hay, vice-president of education. “The fall numbers are one of several indicators we use to calculate and predict our enrolment for the year. Students begin programs at the college at various points during the year. One of the interesting things about the fall snapshot is that our overall enrolment held steady this fall, while the number of Grade 12 students from the school districts within our region dropped by about 3.4 per cent last year.” Hay noted that during the 2012-13 academic year, for instance, 21,356 people took courses at the college.

Schedule, sales set for RBC Cup Morning Star Staff

The east region champs will be first up for the Vernon Vipers May 10 at 7 p.m., at the 2014 RBC Cup Canadian Junior A hockey tournament at Kal Tire Place. The organizing committee has released the tournament schedule. “The first contest of the 10-game round robin will pit west 2 against the east region representative at 2 p.m. on May 10,” said tournament chairperson Mike Lane. “The tournament’s opening ceremonies will take place prior to the Vipers’ opening game.” The west region has two representatives to be determined from the Western Canadian tournament in Dauphin, Man., featuring the champions of the four western provinces’ hockey leagues. If the Vipers win the BCHL title, they will travel to Dauphin. If they finish in the top two, the third place team will come to Vernon.

“The Christmas gift pack is a good deal.” — Mike Lane

Each team plays each of the other four teams once in the tournament’s round robin component, which concludes with two games on May 15. The Vipers will play all of their round robin games at 7 p.m. on May 10, May 12 (vs west 1), May 13 (vs west 2) and May 15 (vs central). “At that point one team will be eliminated from the tournament and the remaining four teams will rest May 16, before engaging in the two semi-finals on Saturday,” said Lane. The top-ranked team from the round robin games will choose whether to play in the afternoon game or the evening game on Saturday. That squad will play the fourth ranked team in one playoff game

while teams two and three will meet in the other. In previous RBC Cups, the Vipers have had success playing in the afternoon game and getting several hours of extra rest for the Sunday championship final. Some host teams have chosen the Saturday evening time slot to maximize attendance and it has backfired when the team came up against a more rested squad in the final. “In 2010, for example, the host Dauphin Kings chose the late Saturday slot and offered little resistance as they were drubbed 8-1 by the Vipers the next afternoon,” said Lane. The tournament banquet and awards

night will be held May 16. The teams and a few dignitaries will be hosted at a banquet at the Prestige Inn. Then, they will move to the Vernon and Performing Arts Centre for awards ceremonies. A guest speaker has not yet been confirmed. RBC Cup Christmas gift packs are now until Dec. 23. The packs include RBC Cup clothing and souvenirs in addition to a ticket for each of the 13 games in the 2014 RBC Cup. The total Christmas pack costs $229, including taxes and fees. “The Christmas gift pack is a good deal because the ticket package sells for $229, including taxes and fees, and the other items in the pack have a retail value of between $40 and $50,” said Lane. Prime seats are still available for the RBC Cup, but they are in limited supply. Just 100 Christmas gift packs will be

offered. The RBC Cup Christmas gift packs can be purchased at the Vernon Viper office in Kal Tire Place or at the RBC Cup table during Viper games. The first opportunity to purchase will be at today’s game when the Vipers host the Merritt Centennials. Purchasers can also get the packs online by going to the Viper home page, www. vipers.bc.ca, clicking on the RBC Cup logo, and clicking on “Tickets” when the 2014 RBC Cup website appears. Tournament packages can be ordered by going to www.vipers. bc.ca and clicking on the 2014 RBC Cup link on the upper right corner. Packages are also available at all Viper home games at the RBC Cup table.

Police seek hit-and-run witnesses Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP are looking for witnesses to a late-morning accident Tuesday. A 36-year-old Vernon resident called emergency services at 11:35 a.m. to report her vehicle had been hit from behind while pulling out of McDonald’s on 58th Avenue. Police attended, along with ambulance personnel. “Our officer examined the vehicle for damage and noticed two small marks on the rear bumper

that could have resulted from another vehicle,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. The victim of this crash stated that she could not tell if the vehicle that hit her was a car or truck or what colour it was. The RCMP are asking anyone who was in the area of the McDonald’s restaurant on Tuesday at around 11:35 a.m., and witnessed an accident between a 2001 brown Hyundai Elantra and another vehicle, to please call them at 250-545-7171 as police would like to continue to investigate this file.

extinguishing a summer grass fire on band land. The fire department was dispatched to a grass fire on July 30, 2013 at a location they were told was “behind the (Spallumcheen) golf course at Head of the Lake Road on Highway 97.” Fire chief Ian Cummings told a joint ArmstrongSpallumcheen council meeting that he was in command riding in a tender and that he spotted a large plume of smoke from that general area as he travelled down Otter Lake Road. “Upon arrival, I found the fire to be on OKIB land,” wrote Cummings, who stated he requested an engine and tender to state at Highway 97 at St.

Anne’s Road. The OKIB had one truck and four members in a field of tall grass and Cummings estimated the fire to be nearly four hectares in size and heading toward the Desert Cove subdivision. “A change in wind direction would have sent the fire into Spallumcheen,” said Cummings. “I found the incident commander from OKIB and confirmed that they required assistance.” Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper confirmed that Cummings followed protocol and phoned him, asking for permission to help with the fire. “With the help of members from BX Swan Lake (depart-

In his report to the councils, Cummings noted that the Fraser Valley dispatch paged out the Armstrong Spallumcheen department with information they received that the fire was “in or

beside the Township of Spallumcheen lands,” and that OKIB never requested aid but accepted the help when offered. Cummings said it was in his department’s best interest to assist before the fire grew out of control and advanced into the township.

“Our costs were minimal as we were already on scene and the members are paid for two hours,” said Cummings. Armstrong council voted unanimously with Cummings’ recommendation not to bill the OKIB for their response.

Coldstream lights up the season JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Families, friends and neighbours will gather once again for an annual tradition that gets Coldstream in the holiday spirit. The Coldstream Community Christmas Light-Up gets underway Sunday at 6 p.m. at Coldstream Christian Church (9904 Kalamalka Rd., across from the District office).

For any homes or small commercial buildings which have heating, cooling or energy cost issues, Canadian Aerothermal can design a solution. Our systems provide heating, air conditioning, and air purification. They also allow the building to be heated or air conditioned in separate zones. Ductwork is NOT required and we can retro fit an existing building in one to two days with little disruption to the homeowner. Canadian Aerothermal’s experience with installed systems is a 40% – 65% annual cost savings on some alternative energy costs. The indoor units clean, deodorize and purify the air using two filtration systems. For houses with suites, we can install completely independent systems, which eliminates the age old battle between tenants for temperature control.

Hair Studio & Spa

Sound levels are whisper quiet on both indoor and outdoor units. Comfort levels are consistent throughout the home.

Welcomes, Lauren Barrie to their team

Brooks sets sights on Interior RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Dan Brooks believes the future of the B.C. Conservative Party lies beyond Vancouver. The leadership candidate has promised to move party headquarters to Kamloops if he is selected for the job April 11. “The strength of the party lies in the Interior, the north and rural B.C.,” he said as part of a visit to Enderby Sunday and Vernon Monday. “Vancouver is very hard slogging for Conservatives. If we are going to be successful, we can’t ignore where our strengths are.” And Brooks sees opportunities for the party in the Shuswap and Vernon-Monashee constituencies. “Some of our best candidates (in the last election) came out of here,” he said. “Within the party board, four come from the North Okanagan and the Okanagan makes up 27 per cent of our party membership.” Brooks is currently living in Kamloops but he operates a hunting and fishing lodge in Vanderhoof. “I’m filling a power vacuum. There needs to be a rural leader and I’m filling that need,” he said. The other leadership hopeful is Rick Peterson of Vancouver. Brooks has been touring the province and he says many members are demoralized after the party didn’t elect one MLA in May. However, he insists there is also a sense of optimism.

“We have a huge future ahead of us. There has been a massive influx into the membership,” he said. The goal is to have the party processes in place to fight the 2017 election campaign. “Every British Columbian deserves to vote Conservative. The conservative ideology is the best thing for the province. It will create a stronger province,” said Brooks of the party’s focus on fiscal prudence and the economy. In terms of the economy, Brooks says the *Excluding car bureaucracy must evolve to ensure mining and seats & strollers forestry projects can proceed. “We have to streamline the regulatory frame4407-29th Street work and settle land claims.

POSTGAME SHOW!

On Dec. 1, communities around the world will celebrate World AIDS Day – a day dedicated to raising awareness about HIV prevention and treatment. This year’s theme is “Getting to zero – zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination, and zero AIDS-related deaths.” That may seem like a tall order but Interior Health, community partners, and physicians are working together to implement a new program that has the potential to get there. Seek and Treat for Optimal Prevention of HIV/ AIDS reduces transmission by ensuring those living with HIV/AIDS know their HIV status and have access to the best care through expanded testing and engagement in prevention and treatment. “Up to 26 per cent of B.C. residents who are infected with HIV are not aware of their infection and the majority of people who are newly infected with HIV are often getting it from people who didn’t know they had HIV to begin with,” said Dr. Trevor Corneil, a medical health officer and physician lead for STOP HIV. “If more people know their HIV status and receive early treatment, the spread of the disease in

our communities can be halted.” Early diagnosis also means better outcomes. Advances in treatment mean that people who are HIV positive are living a much longer and near normal life. “When an infection is identified early it can be managed as a chronic disease. Early treatment can prevent the virus from attacking the body and it can also prevent it from spreading to others,” said Corneil. “STOP HIV engages family physicians in caring for HIV positive persons by giving them access to and support from HIV specialists. This ensures the best possible care is available throughout Interior Health.” A team of health outreach nurses is also now available to support physicians, community agencies, and HIV positive clients in all Interior Health communities. The outreach nurses provide testing for HIV and related infections, referrals, counselling, medication support, as well as HIV education for individuals and groups. Referrals to the team can be made by physicians, community organizations, or through self-referral by calling 1-866-778-7736.

Morrison setting sights on Sochi KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Noah Morrison’s first glimpse of Sochi, Russia was somewhat frightening but he can’t wait to get back there for the Winter Olympics in February. The 19-year-old Canadian Freestyle Ski Team slopestyler – ranked 11th in the world – was at the Russia resort earlier this year to check out the Games’ layout. “Sochi was different,” said the athlete known as NoMo. “It Noah Morrison was like airport security to get on a chairlift. They pat you down and you have to have your passport on you all the time. The terrain there is sick.” Morrison is rated No. 2 in Canada and will battle A groupers Alex Bellemare and Alex Beaulieu-Marchand for an Olympic berth. Bellemare has knee issues so may not be in the mix as slopestyle and halfpipe make their Olympic debuts. “There are two guaranteed spots and there could be three,” said Morrison, in Colorado preparing for this weekend’s World Cup Northface Park and Pipe Open Series at

Vernon’s Noah Morrison, 19, is in the running for one of two spots on Team Canada in slopestyle skiing at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Copper Mountain. He will ski in a Dew Series stop Dec. 12-15 at Iron Mountain at Breckenridge Resort (Denver) and the U.S. Grand Prix the week after at Copper Mountain. There is an X Games comp in January, in Aspen. The

Olympic team flies to Sochi Feb. 2. How he does in the next six weeks will decide Morrison’s fate and he’s in a positive frame of mind entering competition mode. He finished 15th and was the only Canadian to mke finals at the New Zealand Winter

they’ll kill you. You’ve got to out-skate them and you can’t be lazy.” Zach Dyment will get the start tonight after he backed North Okanagan to a 4-2 win over the Sicamous Eagles Wednesday at the Sicamous Recreation Centre. Webb said it was the second straight solid performance by Dyment, who finished with 37 saves and is now 7-9. The Knights received a boost with the return of d-man Riley Booth and agitating forward Logan Mostat after month-long absences to injury. “Getting him back in our lineup has really bolstered our back end,” said Webb, of Vernon’s Booth. “He’s just playing a smart, physical game.” Blaine Caton snapped a six-game pointless streak to open North Okanagan’s scoring 11:50 into the first period. The 16-year-

old Vernon product whacked home his own rebound from a tough angle for his third goal. “He’s just been snake-bitten big time,” said Webb, crediting Caton’s perseverance. “He’s had some ridiculous opportunities.” The Eagles (10-14-0-2) replied in the second frame on Colin Blake’s first of the season. Dennon Leibel (2nd goal) one-timed a feed from Caton late in period two, just as a North Okanagan powerplay had expired. Tanner Cochrane, with his third goal in four games, supplied the winner early in the third period, assisted by Blake Culbert and Mostat. Rowen Oswell (2nd) pulled the Eagles within a goal later in the period, but Knights’ d-man Austin Garrington (2nd) showed good poise in waiting for traffic to gather in front of Chris Turner (35 saves) before beating him with a point shot for some insurance.

Games (Cardrona) in August. “I’m feeling pretty good, the best I’ve felt lately,” said Morrison, before packing for Colorado. “I’m feeling that I’m going to stomp my runs more often. I’m going out to win.” Morrison worked out on the trampoline with the Silver Star Freestyle Club, did loads of road biking and hit the gym to prepare for the North American season. Canadian coach Toben Sutherland, of Calgary, has watched Morrison’s game involve for just under two years. “He’s in a great place,” said Sutherland, in a Thursday phone interview from Colorado. “He’s really hard on himself which is good. He doesn’t settle. He’s ‘Glad I got it, but I can always do better.’” Sutherland said the laidback Morrison perfected some clutch moves last summer, allowing him to spin right, left, backwards and frontwards from the get-go. “He added some unnatural moves to his bag of tricks so now it’s a matter of putting things together in a competitive environment. All the top guys can do doubles in all directions.” The 5-foot-10, 160-pound VSS High Performance program grad has enjoyed decent success since being named to the national team in 2012.

Knights ride into Kootenays on three-game high The North Okanagan Knights are headed to the Kootenays tonight buoyed by the confidence of a three-game win streak. They’ll need all the swagger they can muster as they take on the Kootenay International Junior Hockey Leagueleading Nelson Leafs (20-1-1-3), who have lost just once in regulation this season. Shawn Webb’s Knights (12-11-0-1) visit the defending KIJHL champion Castlegar Rebels (12-10-13) Saturday night. “Their powerplay is ridiculous,” said Webb, of the Leafs, ranked third on the man advantage (26.80 per cent). “You give those teams powerplays and

Linden Catt (1+2), from Zach Young, got the stars on the board in the first period. Ryder Quibell brought the Stars within one at the start of the third. Tournament MVP Tye Krause (3+1) and Young, supplied third-period snipes. Lumy got great support from blueliners Peter Romailler and Kaleb Pachal and marvellous goaltending from Ethan Keber. Krause pocketed 4+2 and game MVP Mia Maltman netted the winner as the Stars bounced the North Delta Blades 9-2 in the semifinals. Catt added 2+2, Young earned 1+2 and Romailler provided 1+3 in front of a stellar Parker Stadnyk. Dominik Porteous and Cameron Smithson were dynamic on defence.

Sam Frisby, Zach Agar and Landon Currie replied for the Marauders, who

got stellar netminding from Noah (Fouf) Foufoulas. Schwark, with 3+3 and Mitchell, with 3+1, led the Sharks in an 11-3 ambush of the North Okanagan Knights Saturday at Enderby Arena. Kevin Sullivan snagged 2+2, while Lawrence pocketed 1+3, Seb Wenger earned 1+2 and Towers scored once in support of Larsen. Austin Clarke, Clayton Thielman and Devon Rempel replied for the Knights. At the Sicamous Recreation Centre Saturday, the line of Frisby, Aaron Botterill and Cam MacKenzie combined for 12 points as the Marauders iced Salmon Arm North Broadview Plumbing and Heating 12-2. Frisby had 3+2, Botterill 2+3 and MacKeznie 1+3 to propel the Marauders. Josh Bridge added 2+2 to support goalie Sam Knox, who went the distance.

Eric Foufoulas recorded some fantastic saves for the win. Butcher Boys recovered Sunday for a 7-5 win over the Knights Sunday night at Civic with Carter Morris, Maisun Ang-Hamilton, Nicolas Petty, Shaun Huizinga, Brady Szeman, Sapien Joe and Brewer handling the offence. The Xplosion and Stevenson Mechanical T-Birds tied 6-6 Friday night at Priest Valley Arena. Atom-call up Steel Quiring bagged the hat trick in a spectacular Pee Wee debut to spark the Xplosion, who were shortstaffed. In a see-saw battle, the T-Birds grabbed a 3-0 first-period lead on goals by Jadon Foster, Michael Pusey and Brady Beacom. Martian and Quiring, with a deuce, levelled the score before the T-Birds went up 5-3 on snipes by Beacom and Pusey. Billy D’s ignited again to tie it on goals by Liam Reid and Quin Williamson, on a bullet from the point. With 2:30 left, Quiring, in Pavel Bure-like fashion, turned on

the jets to split the defence and put the Xplosion up 6-5. The T-Birds pulled their goalie for an extra attacker and Jacob Wethaufer, assisted by Elias Wery, equalized with 34 seconds remaining. Said Xplosion coach Dan Wilson said: “I’m sure Steel Quiring will never forget this game. He fit in nicely and developed some chemistry with his older teammates. Not only was he the youngest player on the ice, he was the best player on the ice against the top Pee Wee team in the league. What a talent.” Lumby outlasted the North Okanagan #2 Knights 8-5 in Pee Wee action Saturday with Tanner FranjeGilbert, Drew Mackenzie and Josh Litven each netting two goals. Morgan Holland opened the attack with a beauty after a slick pass from Tage Kineshanko. Drew Mackenzie put Lumby up 3-1 with two quick goals, both assisted by Litven, who made it 4-1, from Rory Campbell. It was 6-5 Stars before Litven added his second, assisted by Payton Kineshanko and Mackenzie. Tage Kineshanko added his own on an breakaway pass from sister Payton to finish the scoring. Vanessa Yaremcio, Kineshanko and Gilbert provided solid defence in front of a superb Michael Preston.

The H&L Glass Vipers bowed 4-3 to Abbotsford Hawks in Sunday’s semifinal of the Salmon Arm Atom Development Hockey Tournament. Brock Holliday (2) and Maddex Minard scored for the Vipers, who got determined defence from Adam Bourgeois and Liam Leibel in killing six powerplays. Tireless d-man Quinn Soon had one assist and took MVP, while Hardest Worker went to John Spraggs (1A). In Saturday games, the Vipers tied the Mission Stars 1-1 and stopped the Hawks 5-3. Chris Bond counted Vernon’s goal early versus Mission, popping in a rebound off a Cash Anderson shot. After the Stars equalized, Teja Sheldrake snuffed out a 2-on-1 chance with an around-the-world glove save. Dangler Nick Noren earned MP, while hard-charging Colby Restiaux pocketed Hardest Worker. The Vipers brought their A game against Abbotsford with Noren feeding Emma Elders from Gretzky’s office for a tap-in goal. Minard then took a Jordyn Morris pass on the fly and scored from 25 feet. Minard and Morris then played pitch and catch before Bond buried a backhand. Hardest Worker Liam Remple set up Bond who then got his hat trick. Morris, MVP, finished the attack.

Maroons cruise in B.C.s Morning Star Staff

Morrison dials up early success

The Fulton Maroons were undefeated going into quarterfinal playoff action Thursday night at the UBC Okanagan North Kelowna Gym. Dan Currie’s crew topped Pool C Wednesday before brushing back the Princess Margaret Mustangs of Penticton 3-2 (25-23, 26-24, 23-25, 18-25, 15-11) in a thrilling firstround playoff match Thursday morning. Fulton met the No. 1 ranked Okanagan Mission Huskies of Kelowna in the quarters at the 16-team B.C. Senior AA Boys Volleyball Championships. “We’ve been unable to beat them in three tries this season, but everybody’s playing well and we’ve four juniors up with us so we’re pretty excited,” said Currie. “We’re looking to finish at least top-eight, that was our goal going in.” The Maroons had not defeated the Mustangs until taking them in Thursday’s marathon. Kristian Currie and Karanmeet Khatra led the Maroon attack. Okanagan Mission reached the quarters by stuffing Smithers Griffins Thursday morning. In pool action, Fulton iced D.P. Todd Trojans of Prince George 2-0 (26-24, 25-15), grounded Prince Charles Comets of Creston 2-0 (25-17, 25-15) and outlasted Pacific Christian Pacers of Victoria 2-1 (25-23, 23-25, 15-7). Meanwhile, Keith Becker’s VSS Panthers opened the senior AA girls provincials Thursday in Delta by brushing back the Rick Hansen Hurricanes of Clearbrook 2-0 (25-23, 25-17). Maria Hansen’s Kalamalka Lakers toppled D.P. Todd 2-0 (25-13, 25-21) at the B.C. senior AA girls playdowns at Pacific Academy in Surrey. Jason Reedyk’s Vernon Christian Royals lost 2-0 (25-12, 25-12) to the Mt. Sentinel Wildcats of South Slocan in opening play Thursday afternoon at the B.C. Senior A Girls Volleyball Championships in Chemainus. The Royals faced the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors and the Mulgrave Titans of West Vancouver in later preliminary matches Thursday.

As a 14-year-old, Morrison topped a few events and then rung up a couple of provincial titles as a 16-year-old on Team B.C. He struck silver in Big Air at the 2011 Canada Winter Games in Halifax. He’s earned a few thousand dollars at the X Games and travelled the globe. Morrison pocketed $3,000 for a runner-up finish at the One Hit Wonder last summer in Australia. He won 1,500 Euros at the 2012 X Games in Tignes, France and had his ski bags stolen. Sponsors Armada, Oakley and Kombi covered the $6,000 theft. Morrison gets some funding but is mainly bankrolled by his father, Jamie, a 44-year-old carpenter who recently traded in the family minivan for a 2003 GMC diesel truck with a canopy. “We’re going to build a bed in the back,” said Noah. “The cab opens up so I can sleep while he drives. We get along great. I’ve been skiing with him since I was two. He’s the only one who can change my mood when I’m skiing.” Laughed dad Jamie: “I know when to get him mad.” Silver Star freestylers like Josh Bibby, Riley Leboe, Justin Dorey, Joe Schuster, TJ Schiller, Chad Sayers and Josh Stack have trailblazed the way for Morrison, who notes, “They were my idols.” Despite the big names before him, Morrison is staying calm and composed. “I’m just taking it as just another year. I don’t want to put the pressure of the Olympics on myself.” Mom Denise and siblings Wyatt, 11, and Avery, nine, round out Noah’s other fan club. He’s big into mental imagery and listens to classic rock like Led Zeppelin, U2 and Tom Petty. Morrison has a website that’s linked to PayPal; if you Google noahmorrisonfund it pops right up. He wants corporate sponsors to know that his helmet is available for their logo. Fans may follow Morrison’s journey on his Twitter or Instagram (@noahmorrison2) and his athlete Facebook page (Noah Morrison athlete.) The Dew Tour stop will be televised internationally from Breckenridge on NBC sports channels.

Vortex whirl up strong results Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Vortex Speed Skating Club held their own against more experienced athletes and achieved an impressive number of personal best results in Port Coquitlam last weekend. Nate Benn and Daniel Hall outperformed their competition and simply skated away from the pack using superior horsepower in their longer distances. Jared and Lauryn Eddy showed tremendous grit in their races, overcoming some inopportune circumstances to record a set of great results while gaining invaluable rac-

ing experience. Laura Hall also gained racing experience, competing against more seasoned athletes and obtaining some personal bests. Said head coach Mike Hall: “This competition was a challenge for the Vortex club and the skaters rose to meet it, representing the club and the community well. The hard work being applied in practice is starting to pay dividends for the team with the best yet to come.” For information on how to participate with this dynamic group, check out their website: vernonspeedskatingclub.com.

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL

Love and laziness must not lead to a nonproductive year. Spending more than you make or living on the edge will entice you. Change is required, but pick and choose what’s most important before you make a move. Get moving, and you’ll have no regrets.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Mingle with your peers and find out where you stand. Share your thoughts, but keep your personal preferences a secret. Don’t get angry when action is needed.

H4 SERIES

BEAUTIFULLY MADE ... IN CANADA!

Mechanical Ltd.

www.vernonmorningstar.com

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Keep your emotions in check and your mind on what needs to be done. You will have opportunities to meet potential partners if you mingle with people who share your concerns. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A lack of communication isn’t always a bad thing. Take time to think about the way you feel and what you want to convey before you make a move that may limit future discussions. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Lend a helping hand, and you will end up receiving as much in return. A personal partnership will undergo emotional stress if you cannot agree on a financial matter. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Set up investments that will give you a tax break. An emotional issue due to an unpredictable incident is likely to influence your living arrangements and your love life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Take care of personal business and discuss your plans with anyone who will be affected by the decisions you make. Expand your interests and your future prospects. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Do your best to help others, but don’t meddle or you will end up in an awkward position. A physical activity will help you feel rejuvenated and ready to take on new interests. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Look at the way others live and the interests and differences between yourself and those in your community. Sharing your philosophy or way of doing

things will encourage new friendships. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Listen to any complaints being made at home and show compassion for anyone going through a tough time. Your attentiveness will help change the way someone thinks about and treats you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Personal investing and moneymaking ideas will lead to victory. Suggestions you make will put you in the driver’s seat at meetings. Offer an unusual solution. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Sensitive issues at home or at work will leave you questioning your next move. Don’t procrastinate when you should be dealing with issues swiftly. Don’t let emotions intervene. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A secret is likely to be divulged. Protect your reputation, assets and future prospects. Personal changes must be given great thought before you proceed. Love is in the stars.

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.

Moderately Confused

 

Bridge by Phillip Alder DO NOT RUSH TO RASH ASSUMPTIONS Scott Adams, the creator of the “Dilbert” cartoon, said, “Never base your budget requests on realistic assumptions, as this could lead to a decrease in your funding.” At the bridge table, never base your plays on unrealistic assumptions, as this could lead to a decrease in your trick total. In today’s deal, it is not so much a case of an unrealistic assumption as being careful not to jump to a conclusion that could be inaccurate. South is in four spades. West leads the heart nine. How should East plan the defense? The auction was straightforward. South

smelled a game, so bid that game. The defense looks so easy. East wins with the heart ace (the unnecessarily high card beginning a suit-preference signal for diamonds), cashes the heart king, and continues with the heart 10 (a second suit-preference signal). West ruffs higher than the dummy and shifts to a diamond. East wins with his ace and leads another heart, perhaps promoting a second trump trick for West. Well, that is the plan, but West cannot ruff higher than the dummy. South wins the third trick, draws trumps, and runs the clubs for an overtrick. East should take a safetyplay. At trick three, he should cash the diamond ace. Here,

 

West encourages with his 10, and East leads a second diamond to defeat the contract. But if West has a spade higher than dummy’s seven, he would discourage, and East would go back to hearts. Try to maximize your chances of success.

Canadian sitcom star and stand-up comedian Gerry Dee is at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Saturday, Dec. 14, where he will touch upon marriage, fatherhood and his years as a teacher.

ost of us who have attended some kind of educational institution can recall a teacher that made an indelible mark on our lives, for whatever the reason. From the lovable and relatable Mr. Kotter to John Houseman’s intimidating figure, Charles W. Kingsfield Jr., from the film Paper Chase, those unforgettable teachers have also crept their way into popular culture. The latest to make it into our collective conscious, whether we want him there or not, is Gerry Dee’s Mr. D. A character from Dee’s semi-autobiographical comedy series on CBC-TV, this lackadaisical academic is teeming with confidence to compensate for his incompetence as he tries to instill his vast knowledge to students in his social science class. About to bring The Real Mr. D Comedy Tour to Vernon, Dee (born Donoghue) will be sharing his experiences as a teacher-turned-comic-turnedteacher, albeit a fictional one, along with his other observances on life. “I am thankful for what I have,” said the affable and charmingly frank Dee while talking to The Morning Star from his office in Toronto recently. “I think I’ve hit a peak these past five years, but for most of my life I’m a dad and husband. I started this other thing later in life, so it’s been easier to stay grounded.” Dee, 44, is referring to his now life as a comic turned sitcom star. However, before that, as you can guess, he was actually a teacher. A student at De La Salle College, then an allboys Catholic secondary school in Toronto’s exclusive Rosedale neighbourhood, Dee went on to get his degree and later returned to De La Salle (which became co-ed) to teach physical education, and history. “I was a fish out of water there,” laughed Dee. He also coached the varsity hockey team (in Mr. D, his character Gerry Duncan coaches basketball.) “I coached every night. We were not the best in the academy, but I gave my all to my school. But I’m not complaining about all that at all. “My biggest beef now is how teachers are always complaining. There is a percentage that are whiny. It’s not who I would connect with as a teacher or a student.” Dee taught for 10 years before leaving the school in 2003 for other pursuits, namely comedy and acting. Already a regular at comedy clubs and on festival stages in Canada, he did what many Canadian comics eventually do. He made the arduous journey to L.A., living in a rented apartment, trying to make a name for himself. “My stand-up dream was to be in a sitcom,” said

Dee. “But unless you’re down there for a long time, it’s tough. Now if I went down there, it might be OK. You have to have something behind you. Then, I was not in a situation to sell a sitcom to the U.S.” Dee did, however, appear on CBS’s Star Search (hosted by Arsenio Hall), and on the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. He later appeared on NBC’s comedy competition, Last Comic Standing, placing third, the highest ranking for a Canadian comic on the show. It’s back home where he really made a name for himself. A former three-time Canadian Comedy Award winner for Best Comic, Dee found a niche for himself as a slightly stunned, overly confident sports reporter on The Score (now known as Sportsnet 360), where he interviewed, or attempted to interview the likes of NBA superstar Charles Barkley and numerous NHL players. “Athletes, more so in general than the entertainment industry, are jealous and self-absorbed. But many of them are part of a team. When they fail, it’s humiliating. I can relate to that,” said Dee, about his alter-ego, a cross between Ron Burgundy and Ron MacLean, if there can be such a thing. “Now that I am no longer at The Score, I’m not sure what to do with that character, but there is some of him in Mr. D.” Renewed for a third season, the sitcom is what Dee is focussing his attention on now. He credits the CBC for taking a chance on him, and giving him a venue for some of his edgier, nonPC material. “I like the fact we are injecting some youth into it. Old people die, so it has to keep reinventing itself. But then people in their 80s watch the show,” said Dee, revealing some of the wisdom he shares with his students as his character. Asked how his former students have reacted to him now being a teacher on television, the author of Teaching: It’s Harder Than It Looks is equally frank. “I know a lot of kids probably hated my guts. If every kid loved you, you were not doing your job. But some of my students became friends,” he said. Dee also alludes to the few who have left comments on social media sites, or written blogs, about knowing the real Mr. D back in the day. “Ninety per cent of the comments on social media are positive, but then there is that 10 per cent that say you suck and I hate you,” he said. “Teaching and stand-up help build a tougher skin. And I come from Scottish background, so my dad never let you get over-confident.” And that, kids, is coming from the real Mr. D. Presented by PokerStars.Net, Gerry Dee’s The Real Mr. D is at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Saturday, Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $59 at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

raise money for Kiss FM’s Santa’s Toy Club. “(We) selected Van Morrison’s work to pay homage to the creativity, complexity and pure artistry of his work, which is nothing short of magnificent,” said the show’s producers Jennifer Harpe and Janet Hackman. Born in Northern Ireland, Morrison was just 12 years old when he formed his first band. Since then his work has changed, progressed, and evolved over the scope of his career. Three of Morrison’s songs were included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 songs that shaped rock and roll: Brown Eyed Girl, Madame George and Moondance, all of which will be featured in Sunday’s show. Tickets for Into the Mystic are available through Ticket Seller in the Performing Arts Centre (549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca) as well as at the door to Powerhouse Theatre. All of the proceeds from the show will be donated to Santa’s Toy Club.

avid Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) is a down on his luck everyman: in debt to shady characters, uninterested in his job as a delivery man, driving the family business meat truck, Taylor and Howe unable to impress his pregnant girlfriend and generally stuck in a holding pattern, at a time in his life that should be his productive years. Twenty years previous, Wozniak had been supplementing his income by donating sperm which led to the discovery that he has fathered 533 children, now young adults, when 142 of them file a lawsuit to discover their biological father’s identity. Wozniak begins tracking down his kids and changes his life in the process. We say, “It’s a cookie cutter remake of the FrenchCanadian film Starbuck.” TAYLOR: I think when you go into a Vince Vaughn movie, you already know that you’re going to get “the lovable loser.”

Reel Reviews

Dreamworks

Vince Vaughn surveys the damage he has done in Delivery Man. Delivery Man is not really any different, except that Vaughn seems a little more depressed than usual. What we have here is a film that’s entirely premise related, alternatively sappy and mildly amusing, until the end when everything works out for everyone (yay/boo.) I really couldn’t care any less. HOWE: I will have to agree with you on the points you made above. I can’t

remember one movie that I have seen in him in and gone wow, that was really a great movie. The only good thing about Delivery Man is that B.C. born Cobie Smulders is getting some big screen attention. TAYLOR: She certainly isn’t going to be enough to save it from ending up in the five dollar DVD bin at Wally World, alongside the heaps of other watered-down come-

dies, like say for instance, The Internship (which lost money,) or The Watch (which lost heaps of money.) Hey, I’m seeing a pattern here! Movies that feature Vaughn as the main attraction aren’t that attractive. Take a clue, Hollywood. HOWE: He’s better as a filler character as in Anchorman or Old School, where you have a stronger lead comic in the shape of Will Ferrell or Luke Wilson, the latter just showing how bad Vaughn really is. TAYLOR: I think the strongest indicator of either the success or failure of this movie is hidden in the fact that we wrote this review before seeing the movie and didn’t have to change it at all after seeing it. It is that predictable. (And no, for the record, neither of us have seen Starbuck, the Québec film by Ken Scott, who also helms this new English version, but I’ve heard it’s funnier.) HOWE: I did laugh twice. (This prediction of the number of chuckles did not have to be changed.) — Taylor gives Delivery Man 2 plastic cups out of 5. — Howe gives it 2 files out of 5. (Now that I have seen it, I’ll give it 1.5 full diapers out of 5.) The film is currently showing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Family Christmas movies to show on big screen This holiday season, Cineplex’s Front Row Centre events invites audiences to get in the holiday spirit with affordable films to be screened consecutive Saturday mornings in December. Family favourites include The Polar Express, voiced by Tom Hanks, Dec. 7. This now classic film follows a doubting young boy, who takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole. During this ride, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery, which shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe. Arthur Christmas, to screen Dec. 14, has the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child’s question: “So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night? The answer: Santa’s exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at

the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic - a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns. On Dec. 21 is Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

A curmudgeonly recluse (Jim Carrey), who hates Christmas, becomes annoyed with the out-of-control Christmas festivities in Whoville, the town lying below his cave dwelling on Mt. Crumpit. But after the Grinch conspires to deprive the Whos of their favourite holiday by sneaking into

town on Christmas Eve to steal everything associated with the holiday, he learns that the spirit of Christmas goes much deeper than tinsel and toys. All films screen at 11 a.m. at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon. General admission is $2.50. More information is available at Cineplex.com/family.

daughtry: Baptized

owerhouse rock vocalist Chris Daughtry and his namesake band work to bridge a gap between arena rock and country rock on Baptized. The new album, their fourth, mostly works out its goal with the help of some acoustic folk textures. Although it’s Dean Gordon-Smith not one of the singles, I’ll Fight is a convincing case for Daughtry and company’s success in their sound chase. The track is an acoustic rocker that the band syncs into – a sound that’s a natural fit for Daughtry’s mix of Madison Square Garden and Grand Ol’ Opry. The acoustic textures on the album highlight the band’s drive and accent the keening twang latent in Daughtry’s vocabulary (The World We Know).  Baptized also has the sheen and gloss of platinum-perfect arena rock.  It’s all mixed in with big choruses and some clichés, clever and well-arranged

Daughtry gets a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll on new album, Baptized. enough to bring a coliseum to its feet (Long Live Rock and Roll). This over-used theme is an “aw, shucks” name dropping postcard from the recent past that’s clever, obvious and cheesy.  It’ll work. At some points, the album seems locked into a hard rock/new country hybrid. It deals in clichés, images and poses that classic rock abandoned sometime around 1980. Like new country, it’s done without vision and conviction.  A song that sonically bucks this trend is the single, Waiting

for Superman, a typical tale of a lost, spaced-out maiden, wedded to the overdone rock and roll Superman motif. Daughtry and his band can rock out in big arenas and they’re mixing in country, acoustic and some folk elements but the end result lacks authenticity. Daughtry’s a passionate singer who can express himself effortlessly but he and the band don’t need to be so polished and hit-driven that precision muffles the spirit of the music.  If the songwriting and production team were reduced, Baptized wouldn’t sound so contrived.

Vernon artist opens gallery in Kelowna

A well-known local artist is celebrating the opening of her new art space in Kelowna. Carolina Sanchez de

Bustamante has opened ARTE funktional, described as the essence of art and function in an architectural context.

THE

4801 27th St. Vernon, B.C. 250-542-3321

De Bustamante has been working in architectural ceramics in her Ashpa Naira Gallery and studio, located on the westside of Okanagan Lake, for 18 years, creating original and innovative design in clay for the living environment. She has also shown the work of several Okanagan artists who work with different materials in architectural art and otherwise at Ashpa Naira as well as at the ARTE Funktional shows held in the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. The idea came to her, why not promote all these artists/artisans together in one space? “My interest with ARTE funktional is to bring to the Okanagan Valley  not only the best in paintings and sculptures, but as well,  original architectural and functional art created by Okanagan artists, which is more modern and contemporary in design,” she said. ARTE  funktional’s  first exhibition, Small Objects, is on now to Jan. 10. A reception takes place Dec. 5 from 5 to 8 p.m. The gallery is located in Kelowna’s Factory building at 1302 Paul St.

A boost for the early years Lynne Reside Special to The Morning Star

The North Okanagan Early Years Council (formerly named the North Okanagan Early Childhood Development Coalition) held a Community Early Years Forum Nov. 19. Many community leaders were present, including Eric Foster and Min Sidhu from the MLA’s office and community stakeholders from the Vernon School District, the City of Vernon, non-profit societies, business, aboriginal and faith communities, who all share an ongoing commitment to the healthy development of children aged zero to six years in our communities. The NOEYC held their regular meeting followed by lunch and an informational presentation on the importance of early years community development, Generation Squeeze (citizens under the age of 45 who are squeezed for family time, employment, student loans, and high housing costs), child and family poverty, and information about the initiatives that the NOEYC is taking to make positive changes for families with young children. A world café format provided opportunities for the community’s input. The council was pleased to honour seven outstanding community members with the Champion of the Child Award. The 2013 recipients are Joe Rogers, superintendent of the Vernon School District, for his ongoing active participation in numerous council initiatives with the district; the City of Vernon (accepted by Coun. Mary Jo O’Keefe) for its support of children’s rights through the endorsement of the City of Vernon Children’s Charter and support of young children; Shelby Wall, for 25 years of commitment to reading to young children in early years centres such as West Vernon Children’s Centre, Rebecca Kerr, for her outstanding work in supporting children with autism at NONA; Lisa Patterson for her caring approach with young children at the Elephant Care Family Child Care Centre in Armstrong; Shannon Green, for her supportive work with the North Okanagan Pregnancy Care Centre; and to Jamie Wattie of Staples for her ongoing support of the Backpack project to supply children with school supplies in conjunction with the Family Resource Centre, North Okanagan Youth and Family Services, Whitevalley

Mayor Rob Sawatzky welcomes teacher Sylvie Fersch and children from Arc-en-Ciel Child Care Centre during a visit to Vernon city council chambers for National Child Day Nov. 20. Community Resource Centre and the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club. The goal of the NOEYC is to build community capacity to provide safe, healthy and nurturing environments so that young children can reach their potential. This can include play activities in safe, age-appropriate playgrounds and parks, access to affordable quality child care, free programs and services for families that

“... to provide safe, healthy and nurturing environments so that young children can reach their potential.” — Lynne Reside support healthy development, education for families and educators, working to reduce the 33 per cent vulnerability rate in our communities for children entering kindergarten and addressing the high poverty rate for working and unemployed families with young children. The council has focused on increasing public awareness, improving physical activity, (particularly in outdoor natural environments), reducing screen time, reducing barriers to participation in the many

activities our communities have to offer and being a strong voice for change. Vernon, Coldstream, Lavington, Lumby, Cherryville, Armstrong and Spallumcheen are included in the initiative which is funded by Success by 6 (partnership with the United Way, Credit Unions of BC and the Province of BC), Children First and Building Blocks (initiatives of the Ministry for Children and Family Development). National Child Day recognizes the signing of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Children and celebrates our smallest citizens every Nov. 20. It is celebrated in many ways and used as an opportunity to raise awareness with both children and adults about the internationally recognized rights of children. The City of Vernon invited children to come to Children in the City! Children in City Hall! More than 80 children and their families, child care providers and teachers were welcomed into council chambers, had photos taken with the mayor and received a snack. Some of them sat in the mayor and councillors’ chairs and imagined what a city fit for children would look like if they made the decisions! Lynne Reside is the Early Years Community Development coordinator for the North Okanagan.

Paradise: Lk. 23:43: Jesus said (to the thief): “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise” - park, place of future happiness. Paradise was the region off bliss which man had lost, and it naturally came to be a designation for the place of the righteous dead. 2 Cor. 12:4, the Apostle Paul: “I know a man in Christ...caught up into the third heaven,” - after the Millennium. Rev. 2:7: “to him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”

several events that will provide great gift ideas and much-needed support for the Salvation Army Food Bank and the museum. Now in its third year, the Giving Tree returns thanks to the continued generosity of a long-standing supporter of the museum. “Their donation of their 20-plus year collection of glass, hand-painted figural Christmas ornaments as well as vintage ceramics and glassware has made this fundraiser possible,” said Denise Marsh, with the museum’s gift shop and reception. “Some of the newly received ornaments are vintage glass ornaments from the 1930s to the ‘50s.” The proceeds from this sale will be equally shared by the food bank and the museum. The ornaments are on display and available for purchase at the museum anytime Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Dec. 21. Meanwhile, mark your calendar for Dec. 12, when the museum celebrates the Gift of Giving from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. “Join us for a festive evening of shopping in our gift shop, creating beautiful Christmas bookmarks for your loved ones and sampling our Christmas baking,” said Marsh. “Grab a friend or family member or two and make an evening of it.” With the exception of items in the Giving Tree fundraiser, 10 per cent will be deducted from all purchases in the gift shop. If you’d like to make a holiday bookmark, please call the museum at 250-542-3142 to pre-register. The cost is $2 per bookmark. Krista Blackmore from Stampin’Up! Scrapbooking will be here to guide participants through the steps. “Our gift to you will be draws throughout the evening,” said Marsh. The Greater Vernon Museum & Archives is at 3009-32nd Ave., next to the old Vernon library, near the post office.

Enjoy and be grateful

ear Annie: My supervisor rarely states his desires clearly. But if I take the initiative or ask him to clarify, he makes me feel like an idiot. He is condescending and highly critical of most people. He also is a nonstop gossip. He has portrayed me to others as racist, womanizing and incompetent. He has control over my payable time and my vacation requests. He has the ear of management and lives in the Kathy Mitchell & MarcySugar same neighborhood as many of my co-workers. I fear that bringing any of this up for discussion will create a level of retaliation far worse than the existing reality. Any suggestions? — Kansas Dear Kansas: First, examine your own behavior to see whether there is cause for such rumors to take hold, and if so, correct it. Still, it is no excuse for your supervisor to spread gossip. He

also seems ineffectual as a leader, because he does not make his wishes clear and stifles attempts by employees to clarify. Normally, these would be issues to document and then discuss with human resources or the supervisor’s boss. However, if you worry that doing so will create more problems, you have two choices: Either conduct yourself in a way that is beyond reproach and do your best to put up with it, or start looking for another job Dear Annie: “Unwilling” said he has a major problem with his parents’ 40th anniversary celebration because they want a white-sweatshirt photo. OMG! Both of my parents have Alzheimer’s. Because of trauma from alcoholism, abuse and mental illness, my immediate family has not been together in one place for 40 years. Get over it, “Unwilling.” You are supremely blessed to all still be alive and able to celebrate being a family. Enjoy. Be grateful. Let go. — Envious To all our Jewish readers: Happy Hanukkah!

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Driveway goes Hollywood!

Zack Spencer reveals what turned his head week with a visit to the glitzy 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Alexandra Straub looks at what’s cool, Bob McHugh goes green and Keith Morgan sneaks a peek at a racy compact concept. Check out the full script at drivewayBC.ca

LA-LA Land auto extravaganza Nissan GT-R Nismo Nissan stole the show with not only one of the fastest cars in the world but the fastest man in the world. Olympic gold medalist and world record holder Usain Bolt was on hand as Nissan’s Director of Excitement to help unveil this new powerhouse car. Usain was clearly taken with the new GT-R Nismo, there were also promises to get him one as soon as they are available to replace his gold coloured GT-R. Power on the GT-R Nismo has been pumped up to 600hp taking this new Nismo version to 100 k/h in just two seconds. That’s right two seconds! Nissan claims that the Nismo also gets suspension advancement and interior upgrades to help refine the ride and quite the cabin. Look for the new GT-R in the spring of 2014. I suspect Usain will get his a bit earlier. Chevrolet Colorado The mid-size pickup truck market has been all but abandoned by the domestic automakers over the last few years leaving this category entirely to Toyota and Nissan with the Tacoma and Frontier trucks. Wait until next year and the choice will include the all-new Colorado from Chevrolet. Building off the success of the all-new full-size Silverado, the engineers have taken the same approach to this new truck. Their chief engineer told me that the interior will be just as quiet and refined as the

bigger brother. He went on to tell me mid size truck owners are looking more for maneuverability and fuel economy. On the economy front there will be three engines to choose from. Out of gate, there is the base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.6L V6. In the second model year the Colorado will be equipped with a 2.8L Zack Spencer diesel 4-cylinder, being the first truck to have a diesel in this class. Interestingly, the same Italian company that makes the new V6 diesel for the Ram 1500 supplies it to GM. Subaru WRX Fans of the Subaru WRX will be very excited about the arrival of an all-new car but maybe a bit disappointed that this production model doesn’t look very much little the sleek and sexy concept that was unveiled earlier this year. Not a real head turner but it should prove to be a capable car thanks to an all-new direct injection 2.0L 4-cylinder putting out 268hp and matched to the first 6-speed in the WRX. This new model also gets a new torque vectoring system to enhance the symmetrical AWD system Subaru is known for, plus the stiffer chassis, bigger brakes and performance-tuned suspension will be welcome by WRX fans. The interior is bigger, especially the back seat due to 25mm being added to the wheelbase. The cabin finally gets a refresh with better-looking materials and an optional Harman/ Kardon audio system. The WRX will arrive in the spring of 2015.

yeah. INTRODUCING THE BOLD 2014 KIA

OF THE WEEK:

Subaru Legacy Concept One of the surprises at this years show was the introduction of the Legacy concept. A head turning design that my sources tell me looks a lot like the production car. The problem is we saw the WRX concept earlier this year and the just unveiled production version is not even close to the concept. Lest hope that the next Legacy does indeed look as good as this. The metallic, almost chrome looking paint, certainly helps to make the car pop but the bold front grille and macho stance could very well be included in the final version. Obviously tricks like hidden door handles and ultra slim side mirrors will need to be amended but lets hope that Subaru can come close to this concept. It certainly was a surprise at the show. Lincoln MKC Lincoln has a long and distinguished history as an American premium brand but over the last few decades, it has been an extension of existing Ford products using different badging and trim. There is now a long-term plan to resurrect the Lincoln brand with all-new vehicle that use some Ford components but are developed separately from the main Ford line of products. The first vehicle to get this was the MKZ sedan that arrived earlier this year and next is a compact crossover called MKC. Even though it shares a platform with the Ford Escape, it has been

to submit your answer.

Safety Tip: As road conditions become more challenging by the week, it becomes even more important to be attentive behind the wheel. If you need to make a call or send a text or email, pull over to the roadside, or use those highway rest stops to take a break. It can also help you avoid feeling fatigued.

designed and engineered to be a totally different car. The wheels sit wider and the roof is lower for a purposeful stance. The design, other than the trademark Lincoln grille is very European and the back wraparound hatch is maybe Audi inspired. Under the hood is

a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with 240hp or an optional 2.3L version with 275p and 300 lb-ft of torque. Standard in Canada will be all-wheeldrive and adaptive suspension, matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The interior is covered with soft touch materials and a more expressive dash, rich

in soft touch materials and advance communications and connectivity. The MKC will go on sale next year and will start at $39,940. Lincoln hopes to get attention with this stylish and well-equipped vehicle at an attractive price.

BMW 4 Series Cabriolet BMW has made a change in the naming of their vehicles. The 3 Series is now the sedan only in the BMW lineup. The coupe and convertible version are now called 4 Series. The 4 Series coupe is already available at your local BMW dealership but

the convertible was just introduced in Los Angeles. The all-new cabriolet is wider and features a new three-piece retractable hardtop and for the first time X-Drive AWD is now available on the convertible models. Interior refinements include a new neck warmer to that blows a steady stream of warm air on the front passengers neck and shoulders, helping to elongate the convertible season. Engines will be the same as the 4 Series coupe with e 2.0L 4-cylinder base engine and larger turbo 6-cylinder. Porsche Macan Porsche is hoping to bring their brand to a larger number of potential buyers who might have not been able to afford a Porsche in the past. Los Angeles was the stage for the world introduction of the small SUV called Macan. Based on the same platform as the

Audi Q5, this lower, sleeker and much more aggressive Macan will attract a lot of attention based purely on looks. Porsche made it very clear that this is not juts a Porsche in name but also in performance. Having a chance to sit in it I can tell you that it is very low to the ground and all passengers fit snugly in the sporty interior. The dash is a smaller version of the stunning Cayenne interior but it is what is under the hood that matters. The Macan S is fitted with a 3.0L turbo V6 with 340hp, then there is the Macan Turbo with a turbo 3.6L V6 and 400hp or a 3.0L V6 turbo diesel. The power is shifted through a duel clutch transmission that is sure to delight. Look for the Macan coming next year. Jaguar F-Type This year we have seen Jaguar make a big splash

with the introduction of the all-new Jaguar F-Type convertible. It was one of the most anticipated arrivals of 2013. Next year we get to look forward to the coupe version of the F-Type, a dynamite looking coupe with a stunning silhouette and improved dynamics thanks to a stiffer body. There will still be two versions of the 3.0L-supercharged V6 with 340hp in the base coupe or 380hp in the F-Type S. The top of range model is the supercharged 5.0L V8 with 550hp called the F-Type R. This model can make a run to 60mp/h in 4 seconds and is fitted with the second-generation electronic differential and torque vectoring. The body of the car is built with extensive use of aluminum to produce the stiffest Jaguar ever made. This is one heart-pounding coupe I cannot wait to try.

How to get noticed at the LA Auto Show ‘‘

You don’t get any faster on feet than Usain Bolt does. And if you’re paired next to Nissan’s fastest production GT-R to date, that’s an even more potent combination.

’’

Alexandra Straub

LOS ANGELES: Tinseltown. Hollywood. LA. No matter what you call it, it’s a city of millions and it’s easy to get lost in the crowd. But not if you’re attractive, have a great body and well, you shine. With hundreds of vehicles showcased at the Los Angeles Auto Show, it takes a lot to stand out amongst the plethora of sparkling sheet metal, which is constantly detailed by show

workers. If you’re a sexy snake, that’s automatic grounds for attention. The SRT Viper GTS was on display, but it wasn’t just any old venom-producing reptile. It came with the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package. Aside from 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque being produced from its handcrafted, all-aluminum 8.4-litre, mid-front V10, it comes with the first-ever use for the Chrysler Group’s unique metallic matte exterior colour. And exclusivity is the name of its game. Only 50 will be made and they’ll be available as of January, 2014. Speaking of fast things, you don’t get any faster on feet than Usain Bolt does. And if you’re paired next to Nissan’s fastest production GT-R to date, that’s an even more potent combination. Godzilla takes on the NISMO (aka NISsan MOtorsport) badge with a healthy helping of 600-horsepower and some defining exterior features. In regards to its body, it’s more rigid than before and you’ll also find it has a “factory tuned”

enhanced suspension. The aero package, which not only looks good, also improves road holding, minimizes the negative impact of drag, while giving the car a menacing and muscular appearance. If you’re a luxury German vehicle and you have a worldwide debut in LA, chances are you’ll draw quite the A-List crowd. The allnew Porsche Macan did such a thing, with visitors such as Jerry Seinfeld and professional tennis player, Maria Sharapova. The Indonesian word for tiger, it’s the first Porsche in the compact SUV segment. Or you could say it’s the baby brother to the popular-selling Cayenne. Either way, they’re both have some spice to them! Two renditions of Macan will be available: the Macan S and Macan Turbo. Standard features include active all-wheel drive and the Porsche double-clutch transmission (PDK). The Macan S is powered by a new Porsche-designed 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo engine that puts out 340 horsepower. The Macan Turbo hosts a 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine and

A real show-stopper: Nissan’s fastest production GT-R to date. emits 400 horsepower. Purrrr. Practical and eye catching? – You might not expect that from a cargo van, but when you team up with Hot Wheels, you’ll get exactly that: hot wheels! Ford paired up with Hot Wheels and had its Transit Connect XLT Cargo Van LWB beaming a custom bright blue exterior with orange accents and custom 20inch wheels. But the fun doesn’t stop on the outside. Sure there’s a new front

fascia and grille, and even a oneoff “shark-fin” roof mounted antennas supporting GPS and Satellite radio along with custom gullwing doors (which replaces the standard sliding doors), but there’s a party waiting on the inside. Alongside the custom ST seats, there’s a sleeping area and a 55-inch TV. Maybe I will try my hand at camping again, but only with this van! It wouldn’t be a California auto

show without a special edition Jeep Wrangler. Complete with bronze satin gloss accentuated 18-inch wheels, a matching grille, and other dark parts, the Wrangler Dragon Edition is sure to heat things up. If the bronze bits weren’t enough of a giveaway, the large dragon graphic on the hood will surely let you know that this mythical creature means business whether on or off road. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

Keith Morgan

If you have $1.1 million burning a hole in your jeans pocket then this could be the car for you. The Youabian Puma has been all the talk this past week at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The bulbous shaped, fourseat convertible is a massive 6.15 metres long, 2.24 metres wide and stands 1.8 metres tall, sitting atop a 4.15-metre wheelbase. It’s larger than a big Bentley Mulsanne. It rides

on 20-inch chrome wheels huge 44-inch (111 cms) tires. The Los Angeles-based manufacturer says the car was “conceptualized for those individuals who dare to be different than the

ordinary.” Power comes from a 7.0-litre V8, generating 505 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Building blocks for a future car that will drive itself

‘‘

All of these sensorbased technologies make driving safer today and they could also be considered as building blocks for a more comprehensive automated driving system..

’’

Bob McHugh

LOS ANGELES: While most driving enthusiasts do not recognize the advent of a self-driving car as a good thing, drivers who have to endure crowded urban parking lots and the drudgery of stop-n-go highway commutes, on a daily basis, probably have a very different view. The fully autonomous car may never become a reality for non-technical reasons. We are, however, seeing layer upon layer of new technologies that certainly move things along in that general direction and could make it technically feasible, and perhaps production feasible on a restricted basis. The new Ford Edge Concept

revealed at Los Angeles Auto Show included two interesting automated driving technology advances that are currently under development by Ford ... self-parking and obstacle avoidance systems. What’s different about this advanced self-park technology is that it allows an owner to do it from outside the vehicle with a push-button remote. The vehicle can be automatically positioned in or be removed from a tight parking stall situation. That certainly beats crawling in or out of the rear hatch, when there’s not enough room to get in from a side door. This new system builds on Ford’s current active park assist feature, which is restricted to parallel parking situations and uses ultrasonic sensors. Using similar sensor and automated vehicle control technology, Ford engineers are also working on an advanced obstacle avoidance system. The concept vehicle detects slow-moving or stationary obstacles in the same lane ahead and warn the driver. If the driver fails to steer or brake, the system automatically brake and steer the Edge around the object. “Democratized technology” is an expression used frequently by Ford engineers. It’s about making leading-edge technologies, which traditionally took a long time to trickle-down from expensive luxury vehicles, available on popular, affordable vehicles much sooner,

Things go greener

with Coke . . . bottles

The new Ford Edge Concept relieved at Los Angeles Auto Show or even ahead of luxury class competition. Ford’s current Active Park Assist system is already available on 12 models. This system automatically guides the vehicle into a parallel parking spot, while the driver controls the gas and brake pedals. A Lane-Keeping system is available on 11 Ford models today. This uses a forward-facing camera to scan the road surface for lane markings. The system evaluates if the vehicle is drifting out of its lane and alerts the driver by vibrating the steering wheel. If the driver does not respond, the system provides steering torque to nudge the vehicle back toward the centre of the lane. Adaptive cruise control and colli-

sion warning with brake support is available on 10 Ford models. The system uses radar to detect moving vehicles immediately ahead and modifies cruising speed if necessary. Blind Spot Information System Available on 13 Ford models. Radar sensors in the rear corners monitor the spaces next to and just behind the vehicle. On the road, these sensors trigger a warning light in the mirror when there is another vehicle in the driver’s blind spot. All of these sensor-based technologies make driving safer today and they could also be considered as building blocks for a more comprehensive automated driving system.

The Ford and Coca-Cola have embarked upon an eco-marriage. They’re both extensive users of plastic and both are committed to recycling and finding eco-alternatives. The first offspring of this somewhat unusual realtionship is the Ford Fusion Energi with a PlantBottle Technology interior. PlantBottle Technology is the first-ever recyclable PET plastic bottle made partially from plants, instead of petroleum-derived materials. Already, more than 18 billion of these bottles have been distributed in 28 countries and Coca-Cola claims that this is equivalent to 400,000 barrels of oil saved. Using recycled PlantBottle bottles, Ford has produced the first-ever fiber that can be woven into durable, automotive-grade PET fabric. Fusion Energi is the plug-in hybrid version of Ford’s global midsize car and it’s Ford’s most fuel-efficient sedan. Sound-absorbing recycled denim material, equivalent to more than two average-sized pairs of blue jeans, are also used in the car’s carpet liner and Ford already uses soy foam, made with soybeans, in every vehicle it builds in North America.

from start-to-finish in his role as Infiniti’s Director of Performance. And a few words on that before we take a look at the sleek auto’s design. My cynical colleagues have suggested publicly that Vettel’s title is no more than a marketing ploy, with Vettel filling no more than a celebrity spokesman role. It is most certainly not the case, based on my private conversations with some Infiniti

engineers. Just prior to my arrival for a drive with the young phenom on a French track this past spring, he had secretly put a number of Infiniti products and competitors through their paces and given immediate trackside input on suggested adjustments. In fact, one engineer told me Vettel is remarkable in the way he can do one lap and return with a complete commentary on how a car performed on every part of the track. If the F1 gig doesn’t work out there’s maybe a new career opp for him in the near future! The Q30 Concept is a fusion of coupe, hatchback, and crossover body styles and, like Vettel’s racecar, there’s liberal use of carbon fibre throughout. That makes it a very light, aerodynamic and thus potentially high-performing and economical car. Interestingly, I’m told the designers combined Italian coachwork with the Japanese art of calligraphy to create the lightweight design. Inside, cream and bronze leather features with violet bespoke tailoring, along with contrasting matte and gloss

Infiniti Q30 Concept should be launched in early 2015 finished metalwork. Sculpted ceramics are integrated into the upper front seatbacks housing speakers for a “symphonic audio experience.” It offers a level of technologies and features not typically found in compact cars, such as the Infiniti InTouch infotainment system, which uses two touch screens. Infiniti claims it expects significant growth in the compact premium segment among young-minded affluent customers. Note the reference to young minded. “The Infiniti Q30 Concept is highly predictive of a new head-turning premium compact that we will launch in early 2015,” said Michael Bartsch,

vice-president, Infiniti Americas. “Research among the new generation of buyers - with Gen X and Gen Y soon to represent 80 percent of the market - shows an increasing rejection of traditional notions toward premium cars. These buyers are less willing to connect size, presence and high-output power as key ingredients of the premium product. Rather, they’re looking more for balance, great design and outstanding execution.” The Q30 will likely count the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and the Lexus CT200h hybrid hatchback among its competitors. This car could be a game changer in its class. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

The Coolest Cars

Ever

Rob Sass

Some cars just ooze cool, especially those with a high price tag, sexy good looks and the “right” people driving them. Here are four of the coolest classics of all time along with the film and music legends who drove them and pushed their cool factor over the top:

1. 1964 Aston Martin DB5: James Bond’s long-standing association with this iconic British GT began in 1964, in “Gold Finger: “007: You’ll be using this Aston Martin DB5, with modifications.” Whether you love the gadgets like the machine guns and ejector seat or you’re just a fan of its classic Italian styling by Touring Superleggera and chrome wire wheels, the DB5 has more cool in the air of its tires than the

2. 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder: James Dean was

3. 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390: Combine a Highland

a budding race car driver of some talent. He ordered what was then Porsche’s fastest dual-purpose (race/ street) car available, and after wrapping “Giant,” had famed customizer Dean Jeffries paint in script on the car “Little Bastard.” Whether that was a reference to the car itself, or a reference made to Dean by studio head Jack Warner isn’t clear. What is clear is that Dean tragically perished in the car on his way to a race in Salinas, Calif., at the age of 24, remaining forever young and sparing fans from a Brando-esque decline. Dean and the 550 were the originators of the cool ethos “live fast,

Green 1968 Mustang GT 390 Fastback, Steve “The King of Cool” McQueen and “Bullitt,” which contains perhaps the greatest chase scene ever committed to celluloid -- it just doesn’t get any cooler than this.

4. 1957 Continental Mark II: The Continental MK II of 1956-57 wasn’t branded a Lincoln. Continental was a division unto itself for those years, and to this day it remains America’s best attempt at building a car of RollsRoyce or Bentley calibre. At 10 grand, it was double the cost of the average Cadillac and so much hand labor went into the car that Ford

estimates they lost $1,000 on each one. The Mark II’s spot in the iconography of cool comes from its association with the Rat Pack during its Vegas/Palm Springs glory years. Rob Sass is the vice-president of content for Hagerty Insurance. Hagerty is the world’s leading specialist provider of classic car and boat insurance.

A 1964 Aston Martin DB5 is considered one of the coolest cars of all time.

2014 Volvo XC60 has arrived here in Canadanavia The new Volvo XC60 has a sleek profile with sweptback headlights and raised hood give the sport ute a smart look and you don’t have to be Swedish to enjoy it. You have to hand it to the Europeans for their incredible automotive designs and attention to detail. The wheels are a standard 19-inch with an option to go with 20s, which I prefer. They really fill the wheel wells in quite nicely. Volvo has a history of having some of the safest automobiles out there but who knew they were this comfortable? My tester, XC60 T6 AWD Platinum, came equipped with fully adjustable heated leather bucket seats; leather clad 3 spoke steering wheel, center armrest with cup holders, and a leather clad shifter knob. The back seats are 40/20/40 split folding. I really like the use of aluminum for the inlays and the fabric that extends all the way up the B-pillars, nice touch. A high performance audio system by Volvo comes with aux and IPod jack, and is Bluetooth capable plus

its Sirius XM ready. The touch screen allows you to browse the internet, stream your playlist and get travel directions. The power under the hood is a 3.0 litre, inline 6 cylinder with dual overhead cam, 24 valve, turbo charged and a six-speed, geartronic auto transmission. The T-6 model features paddle shifters. An impressive 325 horsepower with 354 pound feet of torque is squeezed out of this straight six. Traction control is standard on the 2014 model and the torque vectoring system helps reduce under steer by applying brakes to the inside wheels when accelerating out of a curve in the road. Speaking about safety, the available technology package includes collision warning with full auto brake, cyclist detection, pedestrian detection, land departure warning, and distance alert. Pretty much anything dangerous gets in your way, this vehicle is going to tell you about it and react automatically. Standard safety equipment includes Whiplash protection seating system,

Tire pressure monitoring system, Side impact airbags, Driver and front passenger dual threshold airbags, Side impact protection and Inflatable side curtain air bag. Driving around the city in the XC60 not only makes you feel safe and comfortable, but there is little to no road noise inside the cab. The engine is smooth and responsive. The door seals and heavy use of sound deadening material offered a stress free driving experience. That is until I hit Vancouver’s car-clogged Cambie Street. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca
