FIRST-PLACE FINISH

Service to pay tribute to Nicol RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A co-operative effort is underway to ensure Vernonites can pay tribute to a respected civic leader. A memorial service for Coun. Patrick Nicol, who died Jan. 15 from cancer, will be held Monday, Feb. 3 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at Trinity United Church. Planning is underway between the family, Trinity United and the City of Vernon. “It’s appropriate given Patrick’s work in his life,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. “One of the best ways to honour his life is to work together.” A large turnout is expected as Nicol was a popular broadcaster, a city councillor for 22 years and regional district chairperson. Trinity United can accommodate about 900 people, so satellite locations with video feed may be established elsewhere. The city hopes to confirm those locations early next week. Measures are also being taken to provide additional parking on Alexis Park Drive, near the church, while allowing traffic flow to continue.

CT break down causes anxiety RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Some physicians are demanding action after a key piece of equipment at Vernon Jubilee Hospital was out of service. The computed tomography (CT) scanner broke down Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. and was repaired by 3 p.m. Wednesday. “We were sending life and limb cases to Kelowna and for those less urgent cases, we rescheduled until after the CT scan was back up and running,” said Nancy Serwo, hospital administrator. While the scanner, which takes X-rays of the inside of the body, was only down a short time,

it was originally anticipated it may be unavailable until today as parts had to be ordered. The current CT scan is five years old and the prospect of not having access to the service for an extended period is a concern for physicians. “From an emergency department standpoint, not having access to a scanner for 24, 48 or 72 hours doesn’t work,” said a member of medical staff who asked not to be identified. “If a patient comes in from a car accident or is having a medical emergency and they need a CT scan now, they need it now. Sending them to Salmon Arm or Kelowna for their CT is not what we should be doing. We need that back-up system.”

However, Interior Health doesn’t believe there is a need for a second CT scan at this time. “We look at the waitlist and utilization and it ebbs and flows,” said Serwo. “The wait is about eight weeks for urgent cases and 20 weeks for non-urgent.” Serwo added that IHA must also consider the broad equipment needs for the entire hospital and the funds available. When the scanner was purchased in 2008, the $2 million price tag was paid for by the Ministry of Health and the North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap Regional Hospital District, while IH must provide operating funds.

Making a difference for Caleb Jennifer Smith

F

Morning Star Staff

or three-year-old Caleb Gozjolko and his parents, being able to come home to Vernon between cancer treatments in Vancouver was perhaps one of the largest blessings of their difficult journey. And without Variety, that wouldn’t have been possible. But Variety’s assistance to this Vernon family is made possible through donations, such as those made through the annual Show of Hearts Telethon. The 48th annual event runs Saturday and Sunday on Global TV, raising money to help kids, like Caleb, and their families. Variety the Children’s Charity provided more $9,000 in travel expenses to afford Caleb’s family the opportunity to get out of the hospital and resume a normal life, if only for short periods at a time. “Variety made that possible,” said mom Kristi, a full time “momcologist,” as she calls herself, and whose husband Jason works at Epicor in Vernon (formerly Progressive Solutions). “The opportunity to be ourselves and sleep in our beds and establish our own routines. We got to go trick or treating with one of Caleb’s friends and there was just something about getting to be a kid again.” Because for Caleb, since being diagnosed in March, his life has been consumed by chemotherapy treatments and all the nasty side effects that go along with it. Instead of being told to be careful on the playground, Caleb’s mom would have to tell him things like: “Don’t pull on your eyelashes, they might fall out.” Caleb has been fighting Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) which is a rare cancer originating in the lung.

Jason, Caleb and Kristi Gozjolko are thankful for all the support from Variety which allowed them to travel back and forth from Vancouver back home to Vernon between Caleb’s cancer treatments. family calls the tumor Timmy, trying to make light of something so dark. “The diagnosis isn’t very good with it,” said Kristi, as the tumor has a common rate of metastasizing to the brain. “It’s pretty scary.” But Caleb has been fighting Timmy hard, responding well to the treatment, and

is now awaiting results following his tenth, and hopefully last scheduled treatment on Dec. 27. “We are very cautiously optimistic,” said Kristi, hoping they will be home this week if all the scans are positive and all the “Tim bits” are cleaned up. “Without the financial support from

Variety and the fundraisers at Jay’s work and Caleb’s daycare, Caleb’s cancer diagnosis would have been so much more difficult for our family,” said Kristi. “We have been so blessed as we have traveled this road.” Variety also helped the family afford their stay at Ronald MacDonald House when Family Residency funding ran out.

Sparkling Hill stars in Hallmark film richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Mother’s Day is coming early to Vernon. Filming for the Hallmark C h a n n e l ’s latest movie of the week, Mo t h e r’s Day Off, will take place at Sommerville Sparkling Hill

Red Tag

Plus No Tax Sale with donation to the Food Bank

Resort from Monday to Friday. “It’s a one of a kind look,” said Jon Summerland, with the Okanagan Film Commission, of the resort. “It’s like a James Bond hotel.” Mother’s Day Off stars Bonnie Sommerville, from the Ugly Truth and Bedazzled, and James Tupper, who was in Playing for Keeps and Mr. Popper’s Penguins. It’s the story of a mom who attends a Mother’s Day retreat and comes back invigorated and want-

ing to resume her career. The anticipated budget is about $2 to $3 million and the film could pump about $600,000 into the local economy. “Most of that will go to accommodations, renting vehicles and building scenery,” said Summerland. The cast and crew will be staying in Vernon and a casting call for local extras was recently held. Summerland believes the region

will see more movie of the week productions in the future. “These size movies benefit from the Okanagan,” he said. “They get a beautiful backdrop and tremendous crews. They get better production values here.” The Okanagan will stand in for northern California in Mother’s Day Off. “This is the first of many films coming to the region this year,” said Summerland.

Budget challenges face district The Vernon School District is bracing for financial challenges once again. Trustees were told Wednesday that the proposed 2014/15 budget includes $1.2 million in cost pressures. However, it’s premature to say whether any cuts will be needed. “We’ll have to address them (costs) and find a way to fund them,” said Bill Turanski, chairperson. As part of budget planning, a public information meeting will be held Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Vernon Secondary School’s library. “We will talk to the public

about what programs should be maintained,” said Bernie Weiss, assistant secretary-treasurer, adding that suggestions for cost savings will also be sought. Among the cost pressures are $439,391 annually for the CUPE labour settlement, $25,398 for higher Worksafe B.C. rates and $92,857 because a slight hike in enrolment may lead to the district losing pro-

February and May enrolments. It also anticipates the average teacher salary will remain the same. The public input session will be a chance for parents, residents, teachers and support staff to meet directly with district officials about the budget. “We will start talking about what it looks like for the coming financial year,” said Weiss. From there, the 2014/15 budget will be refined until it is adopted in the spring. “We want to find ways to reduce costs while maintaining services for students,” said Joe Rogers, superintendent. The district has cut about $20 million from its budgets since 1999.

vincial funding protection. And there is a projected $135,848 increase for B.C. Hydro. “We have a fairly big usage of hydro in the district,” said Weiss. The district is making several assumptions at this point including that government funding for special program enrolment will stay the same, as will overall summer,

Where Students Come First

There are growing demands to expand cultural amenities in Lake Country. Representatives from the Lake Country Art Gallery and the Lake Country Museum presented updates on their activities to district council Tuesday. “There was a request for a bigger museum and art gallery but they realize it’s sometime in the future,” said Mayor James Baker. “Part of our long-term plan is to have a cultural complex in the town centre. It would be a major draw and an economic driver for the community.” However, any development of facilities could be delayed by the cost — possibly a total of $3 million. Key to any construction would be federal and provincial grants. “We’re working on that all of the time,” said Baker. In her report, gallery president Sharon McCoubrey emphasized that programs and exhibitions have expanded Lake Country’s cultural scene. “It is also the case that the gallery has brought many people from other communities into our municipality,” she said. “We know that a future art gallery, perhaps within a civic centre, would sustain this cultural gem and ensure its community contributions for

the future.” In 2013, more than 8,000 people attended gallery exhibitions. At the Lake Country Museum, more than 2,436 people passed through the doors in 2013. That is up from 1,849 people in 2012. “One of the ongoing goals is to continue to increase visitorship to the museum,” said Duane Thomson, museum president. “This is being accomplished through special exhibitions, community workshops, partnerships and increasing community awareness through our website, Facebook page and print media.” While there is no timeline for new cultural facilities to be developed, Baker says he is impressed with the efforts of the art gallery and the museum. “Our community has a viable cultural aspect because of them,” he said.

Summer concerts on tap RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Summer sounds could fill the air in Lumby. Village council has endorsed the concept of up to six summer concerts in the gazebo park along Vernon Street. “We want to showcase some local talent while allowing residents to take pride in the community,” said Coun. Randal Ostafichuk, who raised the issue Monday. “It would give families something to do for free on a summer night.” Ostafichuk If the initiative goes ahead, it would be similar to Civic Sounds, which is hosted by the Downtown Vernon

Association and attracts large crowds. “I have been to all of them in Vernon and I have been to them in Revelstoke and they are good, family entertainment,” said Kevin Acton, Lumby’s mayor. “It helps with community pride and brings the community together.” However, approval is still needed from the Vernon School District, which owns the gazebo park, and the Monashee Arts Council, which could possibly fund the concerts. If the summer concerts were to prove popular, they could ultimately lead to a permanent outdoor performance venue in Lumby. “Several groups are already fundraising for a stage but we need to get an idea if this is something the public supports,” said Ostafichuk. “These concerts are a great way to test the water.”

Police and emergency crews were dispatched to the accident scene near the Fruit Union Plaza at 5:30 a.m. “The driver of a Pontiac Sunfire was driving northbound in the outside lane when the

cyclist rode out in front of her, resulting in an impact on the passenger side of the vehicle,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. Witnesses told investigators that the cyclist was wearing all black clothing and riding his bike without a helmet westbound through the alley between Earl’s and Sir Winston’s Pub. The cyclist was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with serious injuries which may

include a punctured lung and possible internal injuries. The driver of the car, a Vernon woman, was not physically injured but was quite shaken up by the incident which was being investigated Thursday morning. An RCMP traffic analyst was called to the scene. The northbound lane of 32nd street was closed for some time Thursday morning while the investigation took place.

Looking for the bucks

lthough I believe most of us should pursue careers that we actually get some fulfillment out of, there will always be those who pick a career, job or profession because they want to make as much money as possible. In other words, the salary is their motivator. If you look at the cost of buying a house in Canada you can see why many young adults are doing just that. Today, it takes a significant wage for most to own a home if they are just starting out. Although prices have dropped recently in Kelowna, over the past 20 years the cost of buying a home has risen. In 1994 you could purchase, Jane Muskens on average, and depending on the age of the house and location, a home for about $170,000. Today that same house would probably sit at anywhere between $350,000 and $400,000. The problem is that wages have not kept up with inflation - especially in the housing market. To afford a $400,000 home you need about a $20,000 down payment. You can expect to pay at least $1,500 a month, if not more, for your monthly mortgage payment. To qualify to buy this home (taking in account a number of factors such as taxes and other costs associated with home ownership), you would need to earn a minimum of $105,000 annually. Right now the median pre-tax household income in Kelowna is around $50,000. For families with two adults and at least one child, this pre-tax income rises to around $82,000. Both of these incomes are significantly less than the $105,000 required to buy a house in Kelowna.

The probability is slim of a young adult who either just graduated from high school, college or university, securing a $105,000-a-year job. Many would have to consider renting, or continue to live at home, where they might be able to save enough money for a larger down payment. If salary is to be the driver, the best options for students interested in only the money are engineering, health care and trades. A recent report indicated that young men between 17 and 24 years of age who opted out of college and university and decided to work in the oil patch have seen a significant increase in their wages. These wages have led to decreases in enrolments by men in post-secondary education in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland. Although I understand why a young adult would want to make a good wage, especially in light of the housing costs in Canada, I think the plan to go straight from high school to employment is short-sighted. There are many certificate, diploma and degree programs in colleges and universities across Canada that can get you into well-paying jobs either working in the oil patch or working in an industry associated with it. With a post-secondary credential chances are you will be one of the last to be laid off during any downturn and the one most likely to find employment elsewhere. And that’s why if salary is driving your decision about what to take at college or university, it’s wise to invest energy in career planning that will help you secure long-term employment with a relatively good wage. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College. Comments can be forwarded to jmuskens@okanagan.bc.ca

When a vital piece of equipment was out of commission at Vernon Jubilee Hospital this week, it obviously raised some concerns. The loss of the CT scanner for nearly 30 straight hours sent emergency cases to Kelowna and other scheduled scans were re-booked. That all only adds to the backlog, both here and in Kelowna, as there is currently about an eight-week wait time for urgent cases and 20 weeks for non-urgent. The scanner is used in a variety of cases including cancer, pediatric, elderly, trauma and respiratory-compromised patients. It allows doctors to detect life-threatening illnesses at early stages. “With early diagnosis, many patients are able to receive less invasive treatments with better outcomes possible than with later diagnosis,” said George Abbott, then minister of health services when the current machine was unveiled in 2008. While the machine is key in early diagnosis, how can an eight-week wait list for an urgent patient be of benefit? But the reality is that everything comes with a price. In a perfect world, Vernon would have 10 CT scanners, but funds prevent that. The current machine cost $2 million five years ago, so it’s likely the cost of an additional one would be even more. Also consider that in the medical field, there are numerous pieces of equipment that are in demand, or in need of replacement and/or repair. So Interior Health has to weigh the need and benefits of each according to its budget. But if another CT scanner is indeed needed, perhaps the community can step up to demand and help support the purchase of a new one.

CLIMATE CHANGE Mr. Mayes has once again pushed out his doctrine that environmental changes are doubtful as revealed by his "balanced" reading (MP responds, Dec. 18). There are two problems here. The first is, he does not provide his references for this "balance" to be checked out. There are a number of websites are on the net funded by U.S. billionaires who spend enormous amounts in order to support their fundamentalist right wing agenda. There are corporate supported websites with scientists of some degree - but not necessarily climate scientists - who are shills for the corporate world in denouncing global warming. The second problem is the nature of "balanced" information. A balance between a qualified scientist and some corporate shill with perhaps nothing better than a business degree is hardly a balance. Weight, credence, needs to be given to scientific data supported

Shining stars come through

n Jan. 16, our two children, aged six and eight, were on their school bus heading to Vernon Christian School when the bus slid on ice and ended up tipped over on one side. Receiving the call that our children were in an accident and were being taken to the hospital is one of the worst things a parent can hear. It was a huge relief to see for ourselves that the children were physically unharmed. If this accident had to happen, it had the best possible outcome and highlighted some of Vernon’s shining stars and we wanted to point them out. First, to our bus driver, who in our opinion made the right decision to try and put the bus in the ditch to avoid the other two options, which would most likely have had a very bad outcome. This was echoed by the RCMP on the scene. Of course the driver did not expect the bus to tip over. He only had a few seconds to decide what to do upon weighing out the options. We will forever hold the driver in our hearts with such gratitude. Secondly, we are thankful for all of the emergency personnel who attended the scene and assisted all of the children to get out of

R

the bus, and kept them safe until transported to the hospital. Thirdly, we want to praise Vernon Jubilee Hospital and its reaction to the event. When we arrived at the hospital, I was in near panic mode, wanting nothing more than to see that my children were ok with my own eyes. Upon entering the busy ER waiting room, we were met by hospital staff, Vernon Christian School Staff and hospital security. We were ushered immediately to our children, who were sitting up in assessment chairs, waiting to be seen by the doctor. What a relief indeed. Once given a clean bill of health (other than

The majority of scientists involved with actually studying the climate clearly support the data that indicates the weather is changing due to human influence. Perhaps Mr. Mayes needs more qualified reading, such as the U.S. space administration: "NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) shows that November 2013 was the hottest since record keeping began in 1880 despite strong La Nina conditions, which tend to hold temperatures down," or this Colorado university professor: (Gifford H. Miller, PhD (University of Colorado – Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research) co-author, Unprecedented Recent Summer Warmth in Arctic Canada, Geophysical Research Letters, Vol. 40, Issue 21, Nov. 16, 2013.) or this : Natalia Shakhova, PhD (University of Alaska – International Arctic Research Center) et al, Ebullition

We feel so proud of our local hospital and it is comforting to know it is standing ready to manage what is brought its way. Lastly, we have to thank the staff at Vernon Christian School for the way they handled the bus accident. As soon as they learned of the incident, they kept parents informed continually. Teachers and counselors attended the scene to support the children

I could go on, but space is limited.

and be there as they were transported to the hospital. There were staff members at the hospital to be with the children and parents as they arrived, ensuring each child was not alone and later, the staff touched base with the children as they were released into their parents care. To assist the children in dealing with this event, VCS made crisis counselling available to anyone involved. The school counsellors even sent an e-mail to the parents with information about helping our children cope with a traumatic experience and that information helped us in the early days after the event. The school also informed us parents that they will be providing an opportunity for the children from the bus incident to meet together and talk through the event with counselors present to facilitate. We are amazed at how our Vernon Christian School had handled this incident. They went above and beyond and there are no words to adequately express our gratitude. Our children are doing much better and are back to pestering each other, as usual. To those shining stars mentioned above, we will continue to be boasting with pride about you all.

Headlines (Dec 24/13). Richard Rolke did a fine job eliciting responses from local wellknown community personalities, but I was stopped dead in my tracks by the offering from Colin Mayes: "I hope Santa will bring a little more political co-operation and a little respect in Parliament." I feel the need to remind our MP that getting respect usually entails giving respect. I would suggest to Mr. Mayes that he's looking at the wrong overweight grey guy. Were Stephen Harper able to show even a glimmer of respect for his fellow parliamentarians (and, therefore, for the people of Canada), perhaps some of that respect that Mr. Mayes so overtly craves, will surface in response. The above suggestion would tie in very neatly with all of the teachings, from kindergarten to church to parents, that children receive almost daily (and which, apparently, are readily forgotten by some.)

District doles out discipline richard rolke Morning Star Staff

There are discipline issues within local schools but nothing that’s considered a crisis. From September to December, there were 101 suspensions issued in the Vernon School District. “That’s between all 20 schools,” said Joe Rogers, superintendent. “It’s a little lower than the average.” Of the 101 suspensions, 43 were related to drugs while there were five cases of alcohol possession. Some of those cases can be linked to school dances. “We try to get the kids the help they need,” said Rogers referring to counselling or community agencies. “The real goal is to have them not use those substances.” The other suspensions consisted of bullying (two), defiance (four), disrespect (13), fighting (nine), inappropriate language (five), non-compliance (nine), physical violence (one), smoking (one), vandalism (two) and weapons (seven). School and district administrators have gone through Erase Bullying and threat assessment training from the Ministry of Education. All schools have also reviewed and updated their codes of conduct. The schools have programs for effective behaviour support and problem solving, while some schools are also implementing restorative justice practises to address discipline matters. Through restorative justice, people who have committed an offence meet with the victim to talk about what happened and what can be done to correct the situation. “It would be nice if all schools were using restorative justice because I’m not a big fan of suspensions,” said trustee Tami Ryder. The district’s director of student support services is presently reviewing discipline procedures and reporting mechanisms.

Kal kokanee numbers climb Morning Star Staff

Surveys of kokanee numbers in Okanagan lakes during fall 2013 showed mixed results, but will not impact angling opportunities for the coming season. Kalamalka Lake did particularly well, with strong spawner numbers of kokanee and exceptional average size. Some fish caught by anglers approached world record levels. However, Wood Lake continues to show very low returns due to significant mortality from poor in-lake conditions in 2011. Wood Lake kokanee slightly rebounded from lows measured in 2012, but remain well below historic levels. Therefore, the spring 2014 kokanee opening for Wood Lake

Routine surveys of the number of fish returning to spawn along shorelines and inlake tributaries of the main valley lakes show:

n Okanagan Lake kokanee spawners totalled 126,000. This is a small increase from the poor returns in 2012, but still below average. n In Kalamalka Lake, kokanee numbers totalled 45,000, which is the highest return since

1994. n Skaha Lake’s total kokanee count is estimated at 18,000, which is the lowest return since 2001. n Wood Lake kokanee that spawn in Middle Vernon Creek totalled 2,900, counted via a spawner fence set up for this purpose. In addition, standard visual surveys of the Wood Lake shoreline indicated 850 kokanee spawning along the shoreline areas. Totalled, this represents a slight improvement over 2012’s result of 2,300 but still very low. In-lake conditions were excellent for kokanee survival in 2013 and a more substantial kokanee run that should be able to support a full season harvest is expected by 2015, provided conditions remain favourable. Kokanee are landlocked sockeye salmon found in all of the Okanagan main valley lakes. They represent a fishery resource and an important part of the natural ecosystem. The Ministry of Environment and its partners will continue their efforts to restore spawning and rearing habitats and ensure the long-term health of kokanee populations.

So does Dr. Julian Whitaker M.D. Truthful actual experiences from real people: <I was on 3 blood pressure drugs that did not work well. After starting Bell #26 my readings are generally well below 120/80. Dona A. #26 Anderson, 76, Sooke, BC < My blood pressure was 157/90 and I had side effects from prescription drugs.

Was on three medications that didn’t help. Within a month on Bell#26 my BP dropped to 110/70. I thought I didn’t need it anymore and the BP went up to 170/110 again. I will now stay on Bell. I am surprised about its effectiveness without side effects. Bell exceeds my expectations. Patrick McManus, 52, Edmonton, AB < At work my driver’s medical test was too high at 170/100.

Walk will honour caregivers CARA BRADY

Morning Star Staff

Sunday’s Investors Group Walk for Memories honours the caregivers for people with dementia. “The more you get to know about dementia, you absolutely understand how the people who have it suffer and have difficulties, but you also understand that each one has family and friends and professional caregivers who are working hard to help make their lives the best it can be,” said Andy Erickson, of Investors Group and committee member for the Vernon Andy Erickson Walk for Memories organizing group. “We know how important these caregivers are and what a positive difference they make and we can’t really thank them enough or do enough to help them do their jobs.” The Vernon walk takes place Sunday at Kal Tire Place from 9:30 to 11 a.m., with registration at 8:30 a.m. For more information see www.walkformemories.com. Last year’s walk raised more than $15,000 in Vernon and the goal this year is $20,000. The Investors Group Walk for Memories takes place in centres around the province with most of the money staying locally to provide support for the more the 70,000 British Columbians who have Alzheimer disease or some other form of dementia. This includes alzheimer resource centres, a

dementia helpline, regular information bulletins, tele-workshops, support groups for people in the early stages of dementia, caregiver support groups and individual support. There is early intervention available to connect individuals and their families with services and support as soon as possible after diagnosis. Erickson, who has been involved with the Vernon walk for several years, says he is encouraged by the ongoing research for a cause and cure for Alzheimer disease, including a possible link to diabetes which could lead to new ways of prevention and treatment. “I want to thank the Vernon committee chairperson, Ray Riva of the Grounds Guys, and committee member Diane Neudorf, of the Nurse Next Door, and everyone else who worked so hard to get things ready,” he said. “This truly is a community event. Since it is a walk and skate we get people of all ages, including families with young children. There is a great feeling of satisfaction that we are getting somewhere with these issues, that it is not something to feel shame about or to hide away.” A family caregiver workshop takes place in Vernon Feb. 26 and March 5 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the People Place. The cost is by donation, with pre-registration required. Call 1-800-634-3399 or e-mail cgronlund@alzheimerbc.org. For more information about all services available in the North Okanagan, call 250-860-0305 or 1-800-634-3399. The dementia helpline number is 1-800-936-6033.

The B.C. government has begun a province-wide tour to collect ideas for improving conditions for disabled people, particularly by improving their job

prospects. Social Development Minister Don McRae plans to attend sessions in the Interior and Lower Mainland, including in Vernon, in the coming weeks. The ministry has also

established a website for public comments, and one of the more frequent suggestions is for B.C. to increase its social assistance payment to disabled people. That now stands at $906 per month, including a

rent subsidy. McRae said in an interview that major cost items like that will have to wait until B.C.’s economy improves. Meanwhile, efforts to increase employment are showing promise.

Among the recipients is Jessica Hamilton, of Vernon. “Financing education is a huge concern for our Aboriginal students,” said James Coble, Okanagan College’s aboriginal access and services co-ordinator. “The reality is that not all of them are able to access needed funds through their bands. And even when bands do provide funding, the money doesn’t cover everything. Adequate funding is a critical component of student success.” Coble added that many students also need help with transportation, child care, food and rent. The benefits of post-secondary education for First Nations people were recently confirmed by a Statistics Canada survey that reported off-reserve First Nations school completers are significantly more likely to be employed than non-completers (72 per cent versus 47 per cent), with a median employment income range that is $10,000 higher. According to the survey, 65 per cent of First Nations people plan to further their education; however, they face multiple obstacles to achieving their goals, including financial concerns, lack of confidence, and childcare and family responsibilities.

Non-Smoking Week underway Morning Star Staff

While smoking rates have steadily declined over the last decades, tobacco still kills more people every year than all illegal drugs, suicides, homicides and car accidents combined. National NonSmoking Week runs until Saturday and the Interior Health Authority wants to remind everyone of the importance of local action to address the leading cause of preventable death and disease in Canada. One of the most effective ways communities can reduce the harm of cigarettes is to limit their use in public areas. “There is no safe level of exposure to tobacco smoke,” said Trish Hill, tobacco reduction co-ordinator. “By creating smokefree outdoor spaces, communities make smoking seem less normal, which contributes to lowering smoking rates. This is particularly important for the well-being of children and adolescents because of the message it conveys, namely that inhaling smoke into your lungs is not normal.” Communities with smoke-free parks, playgrounds, beaches and trails tend to have lower smoking rates. In Woodstock, Ont., 38 per cent of people said the outdoor smokefree bylaw helped them quit, and 40 per cent said it helped them to stay a non-smoker. The bylaw did not negatively impact use of facilities, businesses, or

“Inhaling smoke into your lungs is not normal.” — Trish Hill

attendance at community events. Smoke-free parks, beaches and playgrounds also lower the risk of toxic litter, which may be ingested by children or pets; and

reduces wildfire in forested areas. In the 2012 B.C. shoreline clean-up, tobacco related litter outnumbered any other by three times. “Public support for smoke-free outdoor

areas is on the rise,” said Hill. “It’s not surprising since more than 85 per cent of British Columbians don’t use tobacco. In fact, more than 30 communities in B.C., from Vancouver to Kelowna to Sicamous, have enacted restrictions on smoking in parks and on beaches, joining hundreds more across North America.” The tobacco reduction team partners with

local governments, agencies, aboriginal communities and individuals to promote healthy, smoke-free environments. If you would like to know more about smoke-free living or want help strengthening your local smokefree bylaws, go to www.interiorhealth.ca/ AboutUs/ContactUs.

Athletes stoked for Sochi GRAEME CORBETT

Vipers entertain Vees tonight

Morning Star Staff

Morning Star Staff

Josh Dueck has been there before, Kevin Hill narrowly missed out in Vancouver and Justin Dorey has never been because his event is new to the Winter Games. All three Vernon athletes are headed to Sochi, Russia this time around – Hill and Dorey for the Olympics, Feb. 7-23, and Dueck to the Paralympics, March 7-16. Dueck, a 33-year-old sit-skier, struck silver at the Vancouver Games. The Whistler Olympic venue was pretty much Dueck’s backyard, and he hopes to draw upon that experience for Russia, even if it is a completely different world. “It’s (Paralympics) a big show,” said Dueck. “Having a little bit of mileage at that type of event – with all the distractions and opportunities and all the noise – I’m a little more ready for it. It’ll be helpful in the preparation and in the execution at the Games.” Dueck has fallen back of the sit-ski pack over the last couple of seasons as he completely overhauled his equipment. He appears to finally have his new gear dialed in, as evidenced by his silver Josh Dueck medal in super G at the IPC (International P a r a l y m p i c Committee) World Cup stop in Panorama (Invermere). “It’s been progressive. Last year was a real building year for me,” said Dueck. “The new ski is faster Kevin Hill than anything I’ve even ridden, but it’s taken me some time to acclimatize. Only just now, in the last two months, have I been able to sink into it and find the flow again.” Up until Panorama, Dueck wasn’t even sure Justin Dorey he’d checked all the necessary boxes to even earn consideration for Sochi. “It was a bit of a nail-biter,” smiled Dueck. “I just completed what I needed to qualify about 10 days ago. “But I’m really excited about where I’m at right now. I’m back in the mix after a good 18

Vernon’s Josh Dueck trains for the IPC World Cup ski-ski season in Saas Fee, Switzerland. months of being well outside of the mix on the World Cup circuit.” Dueck will head to a training camp in Panorama in early February, followed by a three-week pre-Games camp in Austria, Germany and Italy. Hill burst onto the FIS men’s snowboardcross scene in 2010, narrowly missing a selection to the national team. Instead, he served as a forerunner at the Games. This year, the 27-year-old leads all Canadians, and is eighth overall, in the World Cup standings, so the selection to the national Olympic team didn’t come as a surprise. He is determined to make the most of his selection. “I’m not going with the mind-set that I’m just happy to have made the team,” said Hill, who advanced through Round 1 at Winter X Games Thursday in Aspen, Colo. “I’ve worked hard over the past seven years and I’m going for a medal.” After his breakout season in 2010, Hill battled with the pressure he put on himself to get results. He has since learned to put that aside on race day and just focus on the course in front of him. “I’ve always known I have the ability, but I’ve let that stuff stress me out in the past,” said Hill. “I feel a lot more confident racing this year. I go out there knowing I can win every lap if I try my hardest. When you’re worried about who you’re racing, that doesn’t work.” Aside from a strong field of international competition, Hill, a lifelong vegetarian, will also have to battle to find proper nutrition. “Luckily I’ve been there so I know what

it’s like,” said Hill, who has competed in two events in Sochi. “Preparing for it, I just make sure I have all the extra food supplies and supplements I need when I’m competing. “I’ve had some really good racing there before and I feel really confident on the course and at the venue.” The 25-year-old Dorey is having a banner season in the ski halfpipe, having secured the Crystal Globe in the FIS World Cup. “I had a pretty good idea I’d be on the team after Calgary (first-place finish earlier this month). “After they announced it officially, I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal, but it was an intense feeling.” Dorey underwent shoulder surgery last January, causing him to miss the tour stop in Sochi. The Canadian Freestyle Ski Association flew him to the event so he could check out the venue. “It’s one of the best mountains I’ve ever been to,” said Dorey. “It’s bigger than Whistler. When Dorey got involved in halfpipe skiing at age 16, the Olympics weren’t even on his radar. “I didn’t grow up watching the Olympics, I grew up watching X Games,” said Dorey. “But it’s really cool to be part of the first Olympics (for my sport). It’s been pretty cool watching the sport grow over the last few years.” Regarding his return from injury, Dorey added: “It’s been a pretty long, hard, slow road to recovery. It took almost twice as long as I thought it would take to recover. I’m finally starting to ski like myself again.” Dorey qualified for today’s finals at X Games. He leaves for a training camp in France on Tuesday.

With just two out-of-division games in their last 13, there isn’t much room for error as the Vernon Vipers chase their first B.C. Hockey League playoff berth in three seasons. The Snakes, who occupy third place in the Interior Division at 23-14-3-5, entertain the first-place Penticton Vees (27-11-2-4) tonight at Kal Tire Place. Jason Williamson’s crew then visits the fifth-seeded Merritt Centennials (22-17-3-1) Saturday at Nicola Valley Arena. Just a dozen points separates first from fifth. “Everybody’s either in or out right now,” said Williamson. “That’s why everybody’s got to be urgent and we’ve got to be taking care of ourselves and taking care of business.” Vernon fell 2-1 to Penticton in a meeting earlier this month. The Vipers’ defence did a decent job of containing the Vees’ speedy, skilled forwards, and Williamson wants to see more of the same tonight. “We’ve got to keep them to the outside, be physical when we can and make them come through us. “We want to play right on that edge, but not across it. We want to be physical and aggressive.” Fred Harbinson’s Vees enter tonight on a three-game skid. All were one-goal games, including a 3-2 overtime loss to Salmon Arm last Saturday. Defensively, the Vees don’t have a lot to complain about, but to get the offence going again will take some line chemistry. With the addition of WHL free agents Erik Benoit and Shane McColgan, Harbinson is trying to find combinations that work. McColgan, a New York Rangers’ fifth round draft pick in 2011, is still trying to get his legs under him after missing 30 games to injury. The 21-year-old California native, rung up 83 goals and 268 points with five WHL teams. “It’s (line combinations) still a work in progress,” said Harbinson, who also acquired power forward Nic Pierog from the Surrey Eagles earlier this month. “We need a good balance, we can’t rely on one line to solve all our problems.” Vees’ forward Cam Amantea will miss tonight’s tilt serving the first of a threegame suspension incurred for a blow to the head he delivered in Saturday’s game against Salmon Arm.

Hawks nab Apple Cup silver Morning Star Staff

The Talon Benefits Winterhawks struck silver in the Wenatchee Apple Cup Midget Rec Hockey Tournament. The Winterhawks lost 4-2 to the South Delta Sharks in Monday afternoon’s final at the gorgeous Town Toyota Center, home of the North American Hockey League (Junior A) Wenatchee Wild. Vernon opened the scoring early when Brennan Seltzer and Bryton Stead went into the offensive zone two-on-one. Stead sent a cross-ice pass to the streaking Seltzer, who nicely converted. The Sharks then responded with three unanswered snipes before captain Rowyn LewisHatherley scored from Layk Petersen and Stead.

Lazar does trick for Oil Kings Edmonton Oil Kings Web Site

EDMONTON – Curtis Lazar’s first game at Rexall Place in over a month was one to remember. The Edmonton Oil Kings centre, who hadn’t played a home game since Dec. 8 while competing for Canada at the World Juniors, scored a natural hat trick over three periods and added an assist as the Oil Kings (32-13-0-1) downed the Regina Pats (24-20-3-2) 5-2 Wednesday night. “I love playing at Rexall. It’s an NHL rink, and it’s one of those nights where it was going in for me,” said Lazar, a Vernon product who was honoured prior to the game alongside Oil Kings’ captain Griffin Reinhart for their contributions to Team Canada. The Pats jumped out to an early 2-0 lead on goals by Carter Hansen and Morgan Klimchuk, but from there the line of Lazar, Edgars Kulda and Brett Pollock took over. “I think we have a great chemistry, me, Polly and Curtis,” said Kulda. “We can read … each other, and we have our chances to score.” Lazar sniped the top corner in the final

minute of the first period to cut the lead in half, then tied it up just 1:48 into the second period on a beautiful backwards pass from Kulda. Lazar was at it again in the third, scoring the go-ahead goal (his 26th) off a rebound just as a powerplay expired, and setting up Kulda, who finished with a goal and three assists, on a goal-mouth scramble. Cody Corbett iced it with a shorthanded empty-netter in the dying minutes and finished with 1+1. Pollock chipped in with a pair of assists. “It comes with confidence,” said Lazar, who turns 19 on Feb. 2. “I’ve been giving Edgars a hard time in practice lately. He really wanted a big game for our line, and it proved: he made some great passes to me and made my job pretty easy.” Lazar now has an eight-game point streak and has scored in every game since he returned from Sweden. Kulda ran his point streak to seven and has goals in eight of his last nine games, while Corbett now has points in six straight. Tristan Jarry made 20 saves to pick up the win, while Daniel Wapple stopped 29

King collects Texas bronze Morning Star Staff

Former Kokanee Savannah King, now with the UBC Thunderbirds, swam to bronze in the 800metre freestyle at the Arena Grand Prix stop last weekend in Austin, Tex. King, a two-time Olympian now in her fourth year at UBC, finished in eight minutes, 38.87 seconds, shading fourth-place finisher Chloe Sutton by just .06. Joe Byram, another Kokanee grad, reached the B final in both the 100 and 200 backstroke in Texas.

Knights storm past Posse in third Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan Knights fired three unanswered goals in the third period to upend the host Princeton Posse 5-3 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League play Tuesday night. The Knights (20-20-0-1), who host the Okanagan Division-leading Kelowna Chiefs (26-12-0-3) tonight (7:30) at Nor-Val Sports Centre, have won four of their last five tilts. North Okanagan visits Princeton again Saturday. Collecting a goal and assist each for North Okanagan against Princeton (13-23-0-4) were d-man Ryley Booth (2nd goal), Vernon Midget Tier 1 call-up Jeff Bochon, captain TJ Christensen

(7th) and Logan Geefs (6th). Blake Culbert (8th) pocketed the winner on a powerplay with 6:48 remaining in regulation. The Posse outshot the Knights 19-10 in the first period, taking a 1-0 lead to the break on Andrew Stack’s 10th of the season. Destin Robinson (4th) put the hosts up by two with a shorthanded marker 4:33 into period two. Bochon, with his first-ever KIJHL goal, and Geefs, scoring in the final minute, had it even after 40 minutes. Eric Schmidt (15th) completed Princeton’s attack early in the final frame. Zach Dyment recorded 28 saves for his 14th win, while Spencer Huff had 33 stops for the Posse.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) It’s a good idea to be as active as possible today. Meet up with informed and likeminded people. Travel will lead to a creative opportunity. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You will likely have to face an older relative’s difficulties. It’s an opportune time to check out real estate or other long-term investments. Financial opportunities are likely to manifest. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) A partnership can improve your life, but don’t let your fears or your stubbornness get in the way. Love should be your focus. If you are coy or distracted, your partner will not be pleased. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Find an opportunity to get closer to a colleague or superior. You can gain ground if you form alliances, but be careful whom you choose. CANCER (June 21-July 22) This is a great day for love and romance. Do something thoughtful for your special someone. You can also meet potential partners through a trip or by attending events. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Don’t take any personal or professional chances today. Changes are inevitable, so prepare to accept them and move on with grace. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your pragmatic but tactful approach will help you get along with everyone, and that will make it easy to

ask for assistance. Finding solutions to practical concerns will be simple. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Life can change in an instant, and sometimes all you can do is just try your best. Professional and financial gains are likely, so if you have a chance to apply for a better position, seize it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You will be emotional, and self-control will be an issue. Less talk and more positive action are what is needed. You will meet someone appealing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You may find yourself stressed by a deadline if you are trying to complete paperwork before the weekend officially begins. Be persistent, and the concerned parties will comply. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your confident approach to finding solutions will be irresistible today. You can form alliances and persuade others to support your plans.

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 TRUST YOUR PARTNER TO STEER YOU RIGHT Joyce Cary, an English novelist who died in 1957, said, “The will is never free -- it is always attached to an object, a purpose. It is simply the engine in the car -- it can’t steer.” At the bridge table, surprisingly often one defender can steer his partner in the right direction. The problem is that some defenders prefer to backseat drive, ignoring their partners’ signals and heading down their own side roads -- and letting defeatable contracts make. In this example deal, how should the defenders play to beat four hearts? After East opened one

diamond, that South hand was strong enough for a takeout double followed by a heart bid. But South reasonably decided that his short spades made an initial double dangerous. (Yes, it was unlikely to backfire, but one heart would be the majority expert choice these days.) Then, when North raised hearts, South had an easy jump to game. First, West must lead the diamond four, his partner’s bid suit. East wins with his queen and cashes the diamond ace. West discards the club two, denying interest in that suit. East takes the diamond king, West pitching the spade three to say that he does not have the spade ace.

What should East do now? If West does not want a black-suit shift, there is only one play left -- lead another diamond. And as you can see, this is the only way to defeat the contract because it promotes West’s heart queen as a trick. Trust your partner’s signals -- if he is trustworthy!

EDITOR: Kristin Froneman • 250.550.7923 • entertainment@vernonmorningstar.com

For the love of a Hamburg Steinway Renowned artist Ian Parker returns to Vernon to express his love for a certain grand instrument Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

In 1836, German cabinet and piano maker Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg built his first piano in the kitchen of his home. Many more pianos followed. After moving to New York City more than a decade later, Steinweg changed the family name to Steinway and started the company Steinway & Sons with his offspring in Manhattan. The rest, as they say, is history. One of the most respected instrument manufacturers, a Steinway & Sons-made piano attracts many aficionados, including collectors and performers. Canadian-born pianist Ian Parker is one of those fans. About to perform the third concert of the North Okanagan Community Concert Association’s 60th anniversary season, the Juilliard-trained concert soloist owns not one, but two Steinway concert grands (he also owns a rare red, gold and black Bösendorfer) and has visited the Steinway factories in New York City, where he calls home for half the year when not in Vancouver, and in Hamburg, Germany. In the same way that certain high-powered sports drinks endorse extreme athletes, Parker is represented by Steinway, joining the likes of Cole Porter, Billy Joel, Diana Krall and Rachmaninoff, who have all played the company’s pianos at one time. In fact, all the famed piano-playing Parkers, including Ian’s cousins Jon Kimura Parker and Jamie Parker (of the Gryphon Trio) play Steinways. You could say that Parker is as obsessed with Steinways as much as he is with a slowcooked gourmet meal. “Just as you would get offended if someone goes to a concert and talks on their cell phone, it’s the same thing when going to a nice restaurant and shoving down the food. It should be enjoyed and taken slowly. I believe the piano should be the same thing,” said Parker. Parker’s tastes tend to swerve towards Germany when it comes to pianos. He has a special attachment to the Hamburg-built Steinway, and will once again be performing on the nine-foot con-

According to the NOCCA, which is bringing Parker back to Vernon by popular request, the musician doesn’t perform “on” the piano, he plays “with” it. “The association’s Hamburg Steinway has never been in better hands,” reads the NOCCA’s program notes. This will be Parker’s third time playing the piano, which has a long history. It was manufactured in 1887, reconditioned in the 1950s and subsequently purchased by NOCCA from the Steinway factory in Hamburg, Germany in 1954. It was rebuilt by Peachland technician and piano restoration expert Marinus van Prattenburg more than 10 years ago, and according to some, has seen better days. “I look forward to playing it again,” said Parker, adding, “I’ve been helping (NOCCA president) Paul Maynes to find a new piano for the association. I am often tripping on a few of these gorgeous instruments on my travels. It would be a full-out, nine-foot concert grand.” Parker obtained his latest concert grand while performing on it at the Steinway Hall in London.

“It happened when I was not looking for it,” he said. “It is very different. It has this amazing character. Each piano has a different personality. You see that when it comes out of the assembly line. “When I’ve gone to both the Steinway factories, I’ve watched them work on the new ones. All the work is meticulous and they each have different practices. Hamburg is most impressive. You can hear them yelling across the room when they are not satisfied with a component. They make an exceptional product.” Those who attend Parker’s concert in Vernon will see the old Hamburg Steinway get quite the work out. Although the selections for the Vernon show were not finalized by press time, Parker says he will perform Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, which he explains is not a sonata in the traditional sense, where the movements feature the melody mutated with the chorus. “It’s instead like a set of revolving fantasies... It’s why Moonlight is so popular,” said Parker. “It’s his most famous sonata but it’s like Bach’s Toccata and Fugue (in D minor). Most people don’t know the whole piece, but only know the first few lines. When you get out of over-saturated markets, you need

to hear the whole piece. It is a whole new journey to experience.” And like the above description, Parker is happy to share background information on how the music speaks to him as a performer. “I do love to explain a piece verbally for myself as much as the audience to get a good impression. I learn more the second or third time I tell the story about the music. I tend to enjoy it a lot better when I can demonstrate what the composer may have been thinking or feeling,” he said. “The magic of a concert is unlike those perfect performances on CD. You cannot come up with electrifying moments in an empty room. The colour, the blending happens when the audience is with you sharing the intensity. It is very much my aim to feel that on the receiving end.” Those attending the NOCCA show will get an extra dollop of musical magic when 17-year-old Armstrong violin protegée Colleen Venables joins Parker for part of the program. The next NOCCA concert with Parker is a matinée only performance, Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $35/adult and $17.50/student at the Ticket Seller, 250-549-7469, www.ticketseller. ca.

The Nut Job

hen Surly Squirrel (voiced by Will Arnett) is ostracized from Liberty Park because his selfish attitude and clumsy methods lead to the destruction of the old oak tree all the critters call home, he is forced to find food and shelter in Taylor and Howe the unforgiving city streets. With only his simpleton rat friend Buddy at his side, Surly feels like he’s doomed until he discovers his own nutty nirvana in the form of Maury’s Nut Shop. To regain the trust of the residents of Liberty Park, Surly shares his find, which seems like it will feed everyone for years to come. As the critters plan and execute the nut job, they unwittingly expose the fact that Maury’s Nut Shop is actually a front for mobsters who are planning a heist of their own, from the bank across the street. Will either heist succeed? We say, “We’ve seen nuttier.” TAYLOR: On the whole, I was disappointed with this film and I think the few people in the audience would agree with me. There weren’t a lot of butts in seats for a dismal Sunday matinee, maybe 20 people, over half of them children. Yet I heard only one child laugh and only once, no excited exclamations, not even a question asked, proving interest.

Surly Squirrel (Will Arnett) has a plan to feed all Liberty Park’s critters in The Nut Job. There are some things I did like about The Nut Job, but the things that make a good kid flick —story, character and fun— seemed to be lacking. This is a film that simply goes through the motions and the setting, pace and concept, although hip and cool, are not enough to lift it out of obscurity. HOWE: I took my little boy on Monday night and we were the only two in the place and I can see why. I found the movie slow and dull. Even though he said he enjoyed it, I don’t think he really did. Normally, after I have taken him to a film, he says, “did you see this or did you see that?” This time he just sat in the back of the car munching on his burger and fries, not saying a word about it. TAYLOR: Was he pensive? Maybe he was thinking about it. FENIN: Daaaad, you’re wrong. I really

liked the dog with the bendy tail. HOWE: Yeah, but what else did you like? FENIN: Ummm, the candy. HOWE: I rest my case. TAYLOR: I can say that aside from a few obligatory flatulence jokes and nut puns, the film is in no way offensive. It’s very colourful. Surly is purple, all the rats are green and because it takes place in the 1950s, it has a familiar Warner Brothers look and sound to it. I enjoyed the square jawed mobsters in fedoras and trench coats, but an homage to Bugs Bunny and pretty scenery isn’t enough to save The Nut Job. — Taylor gives The Nut Job 2 tardy uses of Gangham Style out of 5. — Howe gives it 1.5 goons out of 5. — Fenin gives it 4 raccoons out of 5. The film is currently showing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Unfold your ticket for the return of Vernon’s Paperboy Morning Star Staff

Paperboy is about to deliver another buzz-worthy show at the Talkin’ Donkey Saturday. Last month, the band packed the house at the Salvation Army-owned establishment for its CD release party in support of new album, The News. “We couldn’t be happier with the response we’ve gotten from the community. We sold out the last show and couldn’t believe it. It really goes to show that Vernon, while constantly in Kelowna’s shadow, is a far more supportive place for up-and-coming musicians and artists alike,” said Luke Mortenson, Paperboy vocalist/guitarist. While each show has been gathering more and more momentum, the lads from Paperboy say they never lose sight of the small, and most important things. “The people that come out to the shows are our

Locals Helping Locals Okanagan Landing Elementary and

friends, family and co-workers, so we want to work that much harder at every little detail, so it’s that much more memorable,” said Mortenson. True to their word, Paperboy has hand folded 50 limited tickets in the traditional origami style. Each one at some point was carefully creased and marked. “I took an English class in college with Kevin McPherson, and he’d always be cooking up ideas for public events. They seemed so outlandish at the time, but perhaps it’s because no one else was doing it. But the idea of making an event so unique that it probably won’t happen again really resonates with people. I don’t see a lot of people on their cell phones,” said Mortenson. Opening for Paperboy is Vernon’s own Naked Ghosts, while the second act, Heard in the Mountains, hails from the Lower Mainland. “While echoes of chamber and symphonic themes can often be heard in their compositions, these young men blend organic textures with synthesized sensibilities for a sound that will leave you breathless,” said Mortenson. Saturday’s all-ages show begins at 6 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at the Talkin’ Donkey (5400 24th St.) as well as at Eclectibles (downtown Vernon across from the Towne Theatre.) Cost is $10 for adults and $7 for students (with valid ID.)

Life, Love & Hope”

nd you will know them by their album cover art — their garish, cheesy cover art that hasn’t changed since 1975, back when bands named themselves after cities. Eternal classic rockers Boston, led by über-geek wunderkind, guitarist/

Street SoundS

Dean Gordon-Smith

keyboardist/songwriter/ producer Tom Scholz, is still around, having cryogenically frozen themselves into the consciousness of MOR

(middle-of-the-road) fans. Back when the punks and so-called New Wavers wrestled the spirit of rock away from hedonistic virtuosos and “progressive rock” wankers, Boston was a band that symbolized a middle ground – a safe way to crank out the epics. Scholz and Boston usually take years between releases, pioneering the concept of ultra precision and perfection in production. Life, Love, & Hope is

their sixth album since 1975. As such, it’s a wonder that they represented the ‘70s and high school life to so many. They don’t have much output but the songs endure. More Than a Feeling, Smokin’, Long Time, etc. can evoke jock rock, Mustangs, hallways and dances in the gym. It’s perennial teenage music that’s morphed into sentimentalism and the appeal of bygone youth, now further transformed into condominium rock. Boston doesn’t stray from this turf. Last Day of School on Life, Love & Hope is just an updated version of Foreplay/ Longtime, and Heaven on Earth is a 2014 version of 1975’s More Than

a Feeling (add Sail Away, Someone and the title song to the list). Falsetto choruses, fluid harmony-laden guitar lines and crunching chord progressions run all the way through Life, Love and Hope. They’ve cloned that sound, and wear their recorded history on their sleeves. Also, the word “love” is used in five of the 11 song titles, a useless fact that might be a clue to the band’s style. So why take a decade between records? Force of habit probably, for perfectionists like Scholz. But in writing the hooks that make you happy, Boston remains the smiley face of ordinary rock.

Local dancer’s dream is realized Vernon’s Kennedy Knopf leaps to the top as part of Team Canada at world dance championships Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

Despite the roller coaster of strength, endurance and emotions, Vernon’s Kennedy Knopf helped her country dance its way to the top. As a member of Team Canada’s dance team, the local teen recently competed at the International Dance Organization World Championships in Poland in December. And they danced their way to the top, with the top trophy haul out of all 24 countries competing. “Every time you win they would play that country’s anthem,” said the blue-eyed, red-haired dancer. “So Canada was played a lot.” Knopf was one of the 19 dancers on the senior dance team, where she competed in jazz, modern and ballet. She also took her first steps on stage with a male in a self-choreographed duet. “I’ve never danced with a guy,” said Knopf, who found an instant connection during rehearsals with Burnaby SFU student Brodie Hargreaves (who claimed the World Champion title in his solo routine). “We had never worked together before but we instantly had this connection. “That was an amazing experience; that was my highlight of the whole thing.” And obviously the pair’s unity impressed the judges, as they placed fifth out of 38 in their duet category. But it was Knopf ’s solo performance that went off track. Going into her jazz dance she was confident, even despite the seven judges placed right in front of the stage and the fact that she was up against close to 40 other dancers. “I felt like I had my nerves under control,” said Knopf. But there was one competitor whom she knew could shatter her confidence – a South African dancer whom she ended being forced to watch and then follow directly after.

Vernon’s Kennedy Knopf performs with partner Brodie Hargreaves during the International Dance Organization World Championships in Poland. Her nerves were instantly heightened and butterflies filled her stomach, leading her to a placing she won’t even divulge. “That was hard,” said Knopf. “I was a wreck. “I can say this honestly, I was a leader on the team so I felt like I had let the team down. But that’s the life of a dancer, you only get two minutes up there.” Of course, her team assured her that they had not been let down, and as it turned out, in the end she helped them secure the top spot. The experience is one she will never forget, and one that could lead to even more. “This on my dance resume, it will definitely open up so many more opportunities for me.” Now, the Grade 12 student is continuing her dancing with Accentz Studio, where she is busy choreographing and

dancing in local competitions. She is also teaching at the Vernon Recreation Complex and is even choreographing her grad fashion show. She plans to audition for as much as possible after school and has an interest in coaching, as well as making world championships more financially accessible for dancers like her. Being the only dancer from the Interior, Knopf travelled to Coquitlam every weekend for more than three months to rehearse with the team. But she is thankful for her community, who helped get her there through donations. “We were overwhelmed with the amazing generosity of our community,” said Knopf, thanking the numerous businesses, friends, family, and acquaintances who so generously donated auction items, time, money, gift certificates, bottles and more.

Helen’s main activity was the Crosswords … now she has other options to weigh. Staying active can mean many things. Playing cards with friends may be fun, but for circulation, flexibility and overall good health Helen needs more rigorous activities.

At Chartwell we offer residents a mix of activities from musical presentations to card tournaments, as well as yoga and exercise classes for those looking for something a little more active.

Our children are active in sports and often play on the weekends. That means we spend every weekend with my in-laws.

The Shadow of Death. Ecclesiastes has recorded his conviction on the state of the dead who perish and pass into eternal oblivion in the grave. Though death is the destiny of all flesh, yet man should not be despondent, brooding over what he cannot change, rather he should exact what joy from life in the blessing received: bread, wine, joy, ointment, garment, and wife. God has given these things to man that he might have some measure of happiness amidst life’s sorrows and vexations.

my side whom we might want to see. My in-laws are nice people, but I want to be able to do stuff with my husband and kids without them being there every time. This has been causing problems between my husband and me. Please, grandparents, find a hobby. — Smothered in California Dear Smothered: This is an issue of boundaries. Dinner once a month with the in-laws is not excessive if the encounters are nontoxic. And they should be able to attend their grandchildren’s sporting events for a few hours on a weekend. However, you are right that they seem to intrude on a great deal of your family time, and their expectations are out of line. It’s OK to tell them “no” politely but firmly. Please discuss this with your husband so you are in agreement. His parents will learn to live with the disappointment, but your husband must back you up.

My husband and I don’t get to spend much time together, and there’s no opportunity to do it at our kids’ games because the in-laws stand between us and take over any conversation. My husband won’t say anything, but it’s driving me nuts. I’ve tried not giving them the kids’ schedules, but that doesn’t help. They invite us for dinner at least once a month and get their feelings hurt when we can’t go. They believe we should come for every holiday. They don’t ever consider that we might want to be alone with our kids or that there is family on

Dear Annie: I am raising my two granddaughters because their parents are in jail. I love them, but I never get a break unless I can pay a babysitter, and it is a bit much. No one ever offers to take them, including the other grandparents, my siblings and my friends. I understand that people have their own problems, but it is discouraging to see that no one cares enough to offer even a little help, and it would mean so much. I know I am doing what’s best for my grandchildren, which makes it worthwhile regardless, but I am an — Exhausted Grandmother Dear Grandmother: Have you asked these people directly to give you a breather? If not, please do so. You are obviously a loving grandmother, but there’s no reason to be a martyr, waiting for others to offer assistance. Tell the other grandparents that you would like them to take the children next weekend. If they refuse, tell them to choose the weekend they prefer. Ask

your siblings to spend a few hours with the kids on a Saturday. And contact AARP (aarp.org) for information on grandparents raising grandchildren and resources for respite care. Dear Annie: “A Friend of Waiters” was disturbed by her friend’s treatment of restaurant staff, complaining and sending food back to the kitchen. I have a relative who is similarly difficult. Whenever we go out, I choose a buffet style restaurant. This way, she can see what she is getting and choose accordingly. If she doesn’t like her choice, she can leave it and try something else. There is no waitstaff to berate or reason to demand that dishes be sent back. The worst she has ever done at a buffet restaurant is complain that our table was not clean enough. — Figured It Out Please email your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast. net, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737-3rd St., Hermosa Beach, Calif., 90254.

What I don’t always talk about is the great on-road driving capabilities. The Toyota 4Runner hugs the road and the bucket seats hug you. It is very comfortable to drive and you feel safe driving it. The suspension and shocks give you a firm ride but not enough to give you that washboard effect. Vision while driving is superb, with little to no blind spots. The thick steering wheel and responsive steering makes you feel like you are driving a car. Verdict The Toyota 4Runner could be on just about everybody’s wish list, given its on and off-road capabilities.

Motor City looking to a brighter future DETROIT – As goes the North American International Auto Show, so goes the industry to which it provides high profile. Every year at this time, journalists from around the world descend in their thousands on this former industrial powerhouse, now economically depressed Michigan city. The Driveway team has just returned and we all agreed there was an air of optimism on the show floor that we haven’t witnessed for some years. Representatives of the Big Four domestic manufacturers believe they have turned the corner and

Lots of ‘ooh-aah, what a car’ Detroit - Flocks of international journalists roamed the floors of COBO Hall in downtown Detroit on the occasion of the 25th annual North American International Auto Show. With a plethora of The GT4 automotive goodness Stinger provides a under one roof, it’s hard to narrow down which possible and highly ones to focus on. After provocative glimpse all, there are concepts, into Kia’s future. production vehicles and much more. And there Alexandra Straub are a lot of them. To kick things off on my list, let’s start with some concepts. Ah, MINIs. For over a decade, they have been romping the streets and causing people to smile, whether driving them, sitting in them or watching them. At the NAIAS, the masses were introduced to the MINI John Cooper Works Concept. Not a whole heck of a lot of information was released but you can bet your bottom dollar that it’ll be fast. There are large air inlets, 18-inch wheels and the unmistakable MINI silhouette and face. It’s built as much for the road as it is the track. Did I mention it’ll be fast? Until the production vehicle is produced, we will just have to be patient and wait for pricing, specs and all the fun stuff. Kia certainly drew the crowds when it came to their GT4 Stinger Concept.

‘‘

’’

According to Kia, the “GT4 Stinger was conceived by the “gearheads” in Kia’s Irvine, Calif., design studio, birthplace of iconic concept vehicles such as the Track’ster and Cross G.” The rear-wheel drive, 2+2 sports car, had a powerful stage presence. And also packs a healthy dose of 315 horsepower from a turbocharged, 4-cylinder powerplant. The Korean carmaker mentions that there are no pending plans to bring this particular car to market, however, Kia has a history of delivering production vehicles that bear a strong resemblance to the concept that preceded them, and the GT4 Stinger provides a possible and highly provocative glimpse into Kia’s future. And if it’s the future we’re after, it looks good. Moving from fantasy to fiction, we have the Honda Fit. It’s a spectacular little car and has been a popular selling vehicle in Canada. And it’s all new for 2015. Up front, the Fit sports a new grille and headlight design. Around back, there are rear reflectors and LED taillights run along the hatch with a chrome tailgate garnish and rear diffuser. Furthermore, Honda keep’s their exclusive Magic Seat, which offer multiple configurable seating positions. Translation, the Fit provides an unrivaled 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the second row seats are folded flat. It also gets a bump in horses. Included is an all-new direct-injected 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine producing 130 horsepower and 114 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s an increase of 13 horsepower and 8 lb.-ft. of torque in comparison to the outgoing engine. The VW Golf R is no stranger to Canadians. It has

been sold here in the Great White North for the last couple of years. But they’re kind of like the tooth fairy. You hear about them, but you rarely see them. Why? Because they were sold in Kia GT4 Stinger. limited quantities. Meaning only a few hundred were allocated for Canada. But I’m hoping such is not the case with the upcoming 2015 Golf R. Making its debut at the show, you can liken it to a donut. A donut that is fat free, calorie free and has sprinkles on top. Yes, it’s just that delicious. The all-wheel drive 5-door has plenty of appeal. But with the option of outfitting it with a 6-speed DSG with paddle shifters (it was previously only available with a 6-speed manual,) it might just reach out to a few more takers. That’s if we can get our hands on them. Oh, and there’s an allotment of 290 horsepower, too. Yum. Speaking of cars with four cylinders and all-wheel drive, the Golf R has some competition lined up in the form of the Subaru WRX STI. With a 305 horsepower horizontally-opposed turbocharged boxer engine, multi-differential controllable all-wheel-drive system, and a six-speed gearbox, those looking to take shortcuts off the beaten path can do it. And do it in style. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

Drives-UCrazy

Curb lane crazies 2 When you head out today count how many times, a car zips up right behind you then cuts into the curb lane to pass. What makes it so fascinating for me is that invariably the lane to the left is free yet they can’t resist the urge to curb. While most of us are happy to pass sensibly on the left and leave that lane for slow-pokes, old folks and parked cars, they insist on turning it into their own private race track. What drives-u-crazy. kmorgan@blackpress.ca

Murray (Murat) Yagan December 16, 1915 – December 19, 2013 Murray passed away on December 19, 2013 at the age of 98 years at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. His passing took place gently with his daughter and other loved ones present. He is survived by: Maisie his devoted wife of 69 years and their children Lima (Ken) Wright, Dal, Erse and John. A daughter, Ridat predeceased her parents in 1948. Murray leŌ an indelible legacy to all who his adventurous, colourful and (as he himself called it) “thunderous life” touched. He was a husband and father but also a greatly beloved teacher, mentor, Elder and friend to many around the globe. Born to a prominent family whose ancestors immigrated from Abkhazia to durkey, he later aƩended the presƟgious 'alatasaray School and while sƟll in his youth was taken into spiritual training by his tribal Elders. As a passionate young man Murray studied medicine, was a cavalry oĸcer, survived several near-fatal experiences, competed in world class equestrian events, wrote poetry and had a life-altering experience with Jesus with whom he fell in love. He married in 1944 and he and his beauƟful, strong Abkhazian bride triumphed over many challenges together once having the crops on their ranch burned to the ground by poliƟcal insurgents. Murray next worked for BriƟsh Wetroleum as a successful manager traveling to villages throughout the Black Sea Coast area of durkey. Meanwhile, he studied for many years with Hasan Tahsin Baba his beloved teacher in the Bektashi dergah in Istanbul and his contact with his Elders grew in strength to become the center of his existence. Murray, his wife and children immigrated to Canada on Eovember 25, 1963, moving to Vancouver, B.C. and then to Mission, B.C. where he took a posiƟon on a farm. &rom 1964 -1966 he became an orchardist in Vernon, B.C. before relocaƟng the family to Wrince Rupert, B.C. where he worked on Įshing vessels and took his Įrst ũob as a carpenter. In 1967 Murray returned to Vancouver where unƟl 1977 he was employed in real estate, became a contractor and then a restaurant owner. In subsequent years he lived on 'abriola Island, B.C. running a small cafĠ, returned with his wife to Wrince Rupert, then took on further construcƟon proũects in Vancouver before Įnally moving back to Vernon. At the age of 89 Murray shaƩered his neck in a fall from a roof but miraculously recovered. hp unƟl 1 year before his passing he sƟll engaged in what had become his fervent love of carpentry.

Mary Catherine Vandale 1944 – 2014

Murray was much loved, will always be loved and will be enormously missed. But he lives on in every lesson and memory he has leŌ and in the seeds he has planted in the hearts of all who were privileged to cross his path. What lies next on his inĮnite ũourney we can only celebrate his remarkable life here and wonder. Most certainly he is with his beloved Elders. He deserves the greatest goodness.

It was his mission from his beloved Elders to give what he could of the Spiritual TradiƟon of his people called Ahmsta Kebzeh to Eorth American seekers. Although he always resisted being called a teacher, his legacy nevertheless includes 13 published books that have been translated into Spanish, 'erman, Russian, Wortuguese, 'reek, his naƟve Abkhaz as well as over a thousand transcripts and hundreds of recordings. Murray founded the Kebzeh &oundaƟon, the EssenƟalist Church of Christ and the Kebzeh &oundaƟon h.S. Inc. He has devoted students in the h.S., South America, Israel, and Abkhazia, an established close-knit Kebzeh community in Vernon, B.C. and many elsewhere in Canada and the world study his teachings. He taught the magniĮcence of 'od, the limitless potenƟal of our hidden treasure as human and showed us how to claim this inheritance. He took us from believing in a 'od in the sky to recognizing that 'od is All, visible and invisible, so that the closest address for 'od is to be found within us. He taught that as humans we are Kings and Yueens in the Royal &amily of the Kingdom of 'od who have been created to serve all Life. That it is only as human, 'od in Its͛ appearance as human, that can make this planet a peaceful, harmonious and loving place to live in abundance because 'od gave Its͛ Will to human to express and grow from using. Murray made us aware of our dependence on 'od and on each other, taught us to show graƟtude and showed us the meaning of uncondiƟonal love. As a parent and as a teacher Murray could be tough and demanding as well as exceedingly gentle. He cared not for appearances. He shunned piety and praise. Yet he was the most humble, loving and dedicated of servants. In 2002 in a ceremony in Abkhazia he was decorated with the medal of Honour and 'lory of the &irst Class “for especially remarkable achievements in the Įeld of culture which obtained internaƟonal recogniƟon.” At his passing, tributes have poured in from the Wresident, the &oreign Minister, and the Weople͛s ArƟst of the Republic of Abkhazia, from other dignitaries and from friends and students worldwide.
