House lists for a loonie JENNIFER SMITH

Morning Star Staff

In his 44 years in the real estate business, Joe Pearson has never listed, or seen, a home so cheap. At just $1, it’s undoubtably the most affordable home on the Vernon market. The only stipulation is, you have to move it. All Saints Anglican Church owns the house on the corner of 27th Street and 32nd Avenue but can’t afford to do the necessary foundation repairs (estimated at $250,000 to $300,000). Therefore, the congregation has agreed to sell the home to someone who can move it. Although the sale price is cheap, there will be some investment needed to move the home as wires will need to be taken down to get the structure out of it’s location. “That’s the easy part, for someone to come along and say, ‘I’ll give you a dollar,’” said Pearson. “It will be $100,000 before you get out of the gate,” said Rev. Canon Chris HarwoodJones. Although there will be some cost involved, Pearson believes it is a good investment. “To build a house like this you’d probably be looking at $200 a square foot,” said Pearson of the 2,400 square-foot home. “They couldn’t build this house for the cost to move and repair it.”

Re/Max realtor Joe Pearson (left) and Rev. Canon Chris Harwood-Jones have come up with a sale price of $1 for the 1892 home next to Vernon’s All Saints Anglican Church if someone can relocate it. For a look at the home visit www.vernonmorningstar.com for a video. The character home, which features high ceilings, numerous bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and hardwood floors is a unique open structure with a lot of history. The home was built in 1892 for William Maurice Cochrane – the great-grandfather of Coldstream Coun. Pat Cochrane. “It’s sad to see it go,” said Pat, who understands that it is not viable for the church to keep. In 1904, the house served as a school for boys before the church took possession in 1912. It was used as the residence for

the incumbent priest until 1993, and then rented to families. It was also the home of a recovery program for women on the street, Venture Training used the house and it was leased on and off. But following an extended vacancy, the church cannot afford to bring the home up to code and has no use for the additional space, therefore it is hoping someone can take the historic building off its hands. “There’s a lot that needs work and the foundation is the biggest part,” said

Harwood-Jones. “If nobody wants to take it away, then we have no option but to demolish it.” So far, the $1 listed price has generated a lot of interest since, according to Pearson, the approximate average Vernon home price (which includes land) is $350,000. “It gets attention,” said Harwood-Jones. There have even been inquiries from Osoyoos and Grande Prairie. The church has no concrete plans for the site, but could decide to use it for additional parking or a new building in the future.

Province won’t fund amalgamation study Vernon’s attempts to fuel the amalgamation debate appear to have failed. On Monday, city council unanimously voted to ask the provincial government to commence a study to determine the most efficient and cost-

effective governance model for Greater Vernon, including the current structure. However, that appears unlikely. “We will not fund a study unless all parties involved want to do it,” said Eric Foster, VernonMonashee MLA, who spoke to Community Eric Foster Development Minister

Coralee Oakes Tuesday about the city’s actions. Coldstream and Areas B and C have indicated opposition to a review of amalgamation. “It’s difficult to do a study if all jurisdictions are not participating,” said Foster. As part of its decision, Vernon council will ask the three other jurisdictions to support its request to the government for a study.

Also, council has decided, in principle, to ask Vernon voters in the November civic election if the city should pursue the creation of a restructure committee and it will encourage Coldstream and Areas B and C to ask their residents the same question. “Unless Vernon is able to convince the other parties to participate, that’s it for us,” said Foster of Victoria’s role, adding that Vernon

Residents fuming over pellet facility JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Some Lavington residents remain unconvinced that their neighbourhood is the best spot for a pellet plant. Tolko Industries and Pinnacle Renewable Energies have plans to construct a pellet plant next to the existing Tolko planer mill off School Road. Concerned residents were granted the opportunity to air their concerns about the plant at a Coldstream council meeting Monday. “I do feel that what I’m being sold here is a healthy cigarette,” said Jason Hoffman, who lives on School Road. “We’ve got a school close by and we’ve got a riparian area bordering the property.” Although pellet plants can generate air pollutants, proponents insist this plant will be the most modern facility in Canada. “What we’re doing here is a step well above what we’re required,” said Leroy Reitsma, Pinnacles president and COO. “It’s much more expensive but we think given the proximity to the community here it’s warranted.” The $39 million investment, which will generate at least 25 full-time jobs plus further spinoffs, will produce significantly lower emissions as it is a low temperature drying facility. As a result, the VOCs some are concerned about will not be produced,

JENNIFER SMITH/MORNING STAR

Leroy Reitsma, Pinnacle Renewable Energies president, speaks to a packed open house at Coldstream council Monday about the proposed plans for a pellet plant in Lavington. said Reitsma. But Hoffman insists: “It’s not what you can see, it’s what you can’t see that may be dangerous.” The entire project is also subject to several approvals, including expert reviews which are currently underway. Agricultural Land Commission approval

is pending to grant non-farm use on the total seven-acre parcel of land for the plant. “They will grant approval for a pellet facility and nothing more,” said Coldstream’s director of development services Mike Reiley. Coldstream must also approve land changes as the property is moved from agri-

cultural to industrial use. Coldstream recently gave third reading to do so, but reminds that this process gives the district a say, whereas if the plant was built on existing industrial land the district would only be asked for building permit approvals. “They could actually construct this facility without any further reviews or requests from council,” said Reiley. The Ministry of Environment must also approve the facility, which will be done through an environmental assessment (expected to be completed in mid to late February). “That process must prove that in terms of the impact on human health that this plant will not have a negative impact,” said Reitsma, adding that the assessment will be available to the public and that there will be a public meeting to discuss the findings. Tolko’s Ken Thorlakson says the location was chosen due to its proximity to the existing planer mill and railway. “Anytime you have to put material in a truck and load it and unload it, there’s an added cost,” said Thorlakson of why other locations weren’t viable. This site is anticipated to generate an additional two to four trucks per day (versus the additional trucks that would have been needed to haul to a different location), and it will boost the railway with an additional 3,500 cars per year.

Neighbouring jurisdictions remain opposed Continued from A1 “We’re not trying to tell them what to do. The intent by council is to provide a mechanism to bring closure to this issue,” said Sawatzky. Politicians in the other jurisdictions weren’t impressed with the city’s direction Monday. “I’m in total disagreement with them,” said Maria Besso, a Coldstream councillor. “It’s not a study to give us infor-

mation on new governance structures. It’s a study on how to bring governance together.” Besso says a governance study would take time and resources away from critical issues facing the area such as the master water plan. “They (city) are welcome to make resolutions and send letters but I don’t think it will go anywhere,” she said. Mike Macnabb, Area C director, will not reverse his decision to

oppose a study. “Vernon can do what it wants but it can’t drag in the other jurisdictions,” he said, adding that he isn’t concerned about a conflict arising between Vernon and the other areas. “The relationship is always there and we work together.” The Greater Vernon Governance Society recently collected 3,160 names on a petition calling for a governance study.

“It’s encouraging,” said Bruce Shepherd, society president, of the actions taken by Vernon council Monday. “People would like to know the facts and understand the pros and cons (of amalgamation).” The society held its annual general meeting Tuesday night. “It (city motions) will create good discussion about what we should do in support of council,” said Shepherd.

Student set for German Olympiade roger knox Morning Star Staff

roger knox/morning star

Vernon Secondary School German teacher Rolf Hirschkorn (left) has been helping Grade 11 student Courtney Blaeser prepare for the German language Olympics which begin Friday in Montreal.

In a city known for its French, a Vernon student will try to dazzle with her German. Courtney Blaeser, a 16-year-old Grade 11 Vernon Secondary School student, leaves Friday as one of 10 competitors for the national round of the Internationale D e u t s c h o l y mp i a d e , or German language Olympics, at the Goethe-Institut in Montreal. “I’ve been doing a five-week course online and they (organizers) choose 10 people from across Canada

to go to Montreal to compete,” said Blaeser. “We did grammar, German facts and knowledge, speaking (by way of video), writing and listening.” The top two students at Deutscholympiade, plus one selected teacher, will earn a trip to Frankfurt in July for two weeks. Preparing for the Olympiade hasn’t been easy as Blaeser has only the itinerary given to her as an indication of what to expect in Montreal.

There will be a quiz Sunday morning followed by the final presentation, then the two winners will be selected. “I’m going to study quite a bit after my exams are done,” said Blaeser earlier this week. “Mr. Hirschkorn (Rolf, VSS German teacher) gave me some stuff to study. You really don’t know what they’re going to throw at you. “All of the stuff I’ve been doing online has been in German so I’m assuming it will be like that in Montreal.” Blaeser comes from a German family but

the language is not spoken in her home. She began studying German in Grade 8 and, for the past two years, Blaeser has been named Vernon Secondary’s top German student. “She has always been keen about learning the language, always asking me, ‘how do you say this, how do you say that,’” said Hirschkorn. “She does a lot of stuff on her own time, and she’s always been eager.” Learning the language hasn’t been a problem for Blaeser. Learning German grammar, however... “The grammar part of it is a bit difficult,” she said. “Words, not so much because a lot of them sound similar to English. But I struggle with the endings on words, having

to know the genders of each noun and figuring out how to conjugate them.” “The grammar is a nightmare,” added Hirschkorn. “There are four different cases in German so you end up with 16 variations of the word ‘the,’ depending on if you have preposition in a sentence and stuff like that.” Blaeser said her goal in Montreal is “to do her best and have fun,” and even if she doesn’t qualify for the July trip, she has another opportunity to immerse herself in the German culture. In March, Blaeser will leave on a 10-week exchange program. She and her family hosted a girl named Madeleine for 10 weeks and the Germans will reciprocate. Blaeser and Madeleine keep in touch through Skype. “I think right now I’m fairly well-versed in German but I know I will be when I come back from the exchange,” said Blaeser. “I love German.

City bumps up tax hike

Vernon On-Line Learning

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s financial plan remains fluid. Not quite two weeks after lowering a tax increase for 2014, Vernon council decided Monday to push the tax rate up from 3.1 to 3.23 per cent. The hike, which will cover the $34,000 needed to clear snow from inaccessible sidewalks, was opposed by Coun. Bob Spiers. “I’d rather have put it off to find a different solution,” said Spiers, adding that existing money, not raising taxes, could have gone to the expenditure. “I could identify $34,000 at the drop of a hat.” But while he voted against the tax increase,

“I could identify $34,000 at the drop of a hat.”

Spiers admits, “It’s a minor change.” The budget bylaw must still receive final adoption from council and it’s possible that the numbers could change again.

Desmond is described as being five-foot-four in height and 143 pounds with black hair and hazel eyes. “We are concerned for his well-being and are asking anyone who might know where Desmond can be located to call the nearest police department,” said Molendyk.

International airport parking fees climb Morning Star Staff

Parking fees at Kelowna International Airport are scheduled to change. Effective April 1, vehicle parking rates will be as follows: Short-term lot — $18.50 per 24 hours Gold pass (six month) parking program — $900 Long-term lot — $12 per day/$62 per week All hourly and meter rates will remain unchanged. The GST is embedded in the airport’s

parking fees for ease of cash payment. Other items that will see an increase effective April 1 include airport landing fees (3.5 per cent) and terminal fees (two per cent). In addition, effective Feb. 15 there will be an increase to fuel truck licence fees and the aviation gasoline concession fee. The airport recently completed a full business review focused on expenditure reduction and revenue enhancement.

Homebuyers can obtain valuable information such as the name and contact number of the warranty provider, the builder’s warranty number and whether an owner-built home can be legally offered for sale. Every new home built for sale by a Licensed Residential Builder in British Columbia is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. Better known as 2-5-10 home warranty insurance, this coverage includes: two years on labour and materials, five years on the building envelope (including water penetration), and 10 years on the structure. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. Visit the HPO website for free access to the New Homes Registry which is optimized for mobile devices.

Very little wiggle room

t can only be described as a rapid-fire slapdown. Not even half-a-day after Vernon council voted unanimously to ask the provincial government for a governance study, officials in Victoria took a firm stand Tuesday. “We will not fund a study unless all parties involved want to do it,” said MLA Eric Foster, just moments after getting off the phone with Community Development Minister Coralee Oakes. And given that Coldstream and Areas B and C recently thumbed their noses at a petition request for a governance study, Foster’s comments are the final kiss of death. “Unless Vernon is able to convince the other parties to participate, that’s it for us,” said Foster of the provincial government. Now, it should be pointed out that the City of Vernon wasn’t being Richard Rolke heavy handed Monday. It was responding directly to a request from the Greater Vernon Governance Society to pursue a study. The society collected 3,160 names on a petition. Mayor Rob Sawatzky cautioned that the city isn’t trying to bully Coldstream and the electoral areas to reverse their stances. “They should do what they believe is best for their constituents,” he said. Council members were also quick to indicate they neither favour or oppose the concept of amalgamation but there is a need to address this reoccurring debate once and for all. Within minutes of the motions being adopted, the other jurisdictions were standing their ground. “I’m in total disagreement with them,” said Maria Besso, a Coldstream councillor. “Vernon can do what it wants but it can’t drag in the other jurisdictions,” added Mike Macnabb, BX-Silver Star director.

Now consider that in the last three years, there has largely been peace in the valley. Simmering disputes over parks, recreation and water have been resolved and officials from Vernon, Coldstream and the electoral areas have fostered an environment of mutual respect. It’s possible the provincial government, which has previously played referee in Greater Vernon spats, is thrilled with the era of cooperation, and realizes that even the slightest push for amalgamation could reignite the bad old days. Turf wars consume significant resources as ministry staff try to calm all of the parties down. Victoria may also have looked at the 3,160 names on the petition, and while extremely impressive given growing public cynicism and apathy, it’s only seven per cent of the total 45,000 eligible voters in Greater Vernon. Is that worth the ministry being possibly perceived as dictatorial and forcing a governance study when three of the four jurisdictions clearly aren’t interested. There haven’t been any forced amalgamations in B.C. since the early 1970s (Kelowna and Kamloops) and that’s because stripping a community of the right to determine its own destiny creates baggage. Of course the issue of governance may not be completely over. Foster has suggested the City of Vernon could pay for a review on its own. Council could also still use this November’s election to ask residents if they support the creation of a restructure committee. But at a time when the city is riding budgets tight and crying poor when it comes to infrastructure, would a governance study be an effective use of cash? And even if Vernon residents overwhelmingly voted for a study, it would prove nothing if there’s no willing dance partner. Some officials and residents will be unhappy with what’s occurred, but Victoria has spoken.

Literacy is the foundation of an educated life. The ability to read opens up new worlds to people of all ages. For the very young, reading is the cornerstone to starting off right with the basics in schooling. First, they’re demystifying those black designs on a page into letters, but eventually those reading skills will help them easily plough though 12 years of basic education. For teenagers, reading can provide an imaginary escape. And for many, writing in a journal can be as therapeutic as chatting with an old friend. In this way, literacy skills can help lift spirits, and even decrease depression. For young adults, reading and writing skills need to go beyond text speak that often reads more like bingo numbers than the English language. A good handle on literacy can lead to better communication, and will increase the chances of landing a better job. Unfortunately, there are people among us who never quite grasped the written language. There are parents who can’t decipher letters from the teacher, and grandparents who can’t read to their grandchildren. But it doesn’t have to be that way. It was recently Family Literacy Week, and it celebrated all things written, and spoken, with the ones you love. So, grab a book and read it to your children. Offer a journal and a pen to your teen. Help a young adult revise a cover letter, or encourage a parent to hit the books. Because it’s never too late to learn. – Black Press

Bucking the trend

I

am responding on behalf of a number of residents in Coldstream who are upset with the management of wildlife in this area. They being the residents who chose to live here, neighbouring a beautiful park with its wildlife and natural habitat. They are upset by the response of conservation officers who chose to remove an animal that wandered beyond its natural boundary, by shooting and killing it. I would assume that in the interests of conservation, such a response would be the last preferred course of action. However, past cases recently in our area have included a shot bear, cougar and even a deer because of its antlers. This is an upsetting trend that only contributes towards instilling fear based on the possibility of human victims. These animals have been killed without being given any benefit of the doubt, and reported as justifiably shot.

BRAVO Bravo Kayla Wirth. Thank you. You have written a masterpiece of what I have been preaching for some 50 years. The suffragettes would be so proud of you, as am I (The Morning Star Jan. 8). Since 1921, the first federal election where Canadian women won the right to vote was a momentous victory. However, it seems that for two steps forward, we must go one step back. It wasn’t until 1940 that women of colour, Asians and East Indian women were allowed that right. It took aboriginal women covered by the Indian Act another 20 years (1960) to receive it. Finally in 1960, all Canadian women had the right to vote in a federal election. One battle was won, but not the war. After 92 years, we are still fighting for our rights. Many men today realize our worth and appreciate our contri-

Also upsetting is that the alternative solution of rescuing the animal by tranquilizing and moving it back into a familiar environment was not considered. This would allow nature to take its course through the process of natural selection

(survival of the fittest). After all, the animal was only following its instinct. I even know of a dozen or so people right now who would have chipped in for the gas to get any three of those animals safely out of our and their own harm's way.

bution in the workplace, but they need a stronger voice. Politicians have passed laws against discrimination which are not always adhered to until taken to court. We now have four women premiers. Kudos to them. Perhaps they will make a difference. Many young women today will not realize there is inequality in the workplace until they recognize the glass ceiling. Young women like yourself must band together, raise the bar and claim the right that we have truly earned. There is still a long way to go. Keep that fire in your heart, that smile on your face and roar away. You already are a winner. Maureen McClocklin

school zone sign. It has now been removed and changed to, "Please Watch for Children." With that said, the speed through there is 50 kilometres and yes, watch for children, animals, adults and cyclists too. Not only there but always everywhere. The second change is along Tronson Road, between Okanagan Landing and Lakeshore roads. The speed has been changed to 50 kilometres. Why, heaven only knows. People are still speeding excessively down there. Nobody does 50 kilometres and I feel it should be put back to 60 kilometres. That's just my opinion because I live down that road. Patti Mondor

SPEED CHANGES Just in case you have not noticed, I'd like to mention a recent change to the speed sign on Okanagan Landing Road by Ellison Elementary School. There used to be a 30-kilometre

NO TO AMALGAMATION The Coldstream Ratepayers Association hosted a public forum Jan. 9 on the topic of the proposed study of possible amalgamation of Coldstream into Greater Vernon. There was overwhelming oppo-

Let's hope the next time, we can rely on like-minded conservationists for support in preserving the natural environment that we live in by rescuing the wildlife that has wandered into out of bounds territory. There should be no doubt what actions are required in an event for safety reasons. However, not exact is the science in the matter of doing a duty just to rid the public of a nuisance by death. While some officers can be admired for their sagacity in conservation, others should never have been appointed to the position in the first place. Inevitably, in an area like Coldstream, shared by people and wildlife, there will be another rock and a hard place scenario in the future. Hopefully this trend towards a fatal outcome for deer, bear or cougar is avoided, thus giving both sides of the issue something to cheer about. A. Black

sition to the idea from the 60 or so members of the public who attended. Our intention was to explore all sides of the issue but, amazingly, not one voice was raised in favour of the study or of amalgamation. This is surprising since members of the board of the Greater Vernon Governance Society (GVGS), who are spearheading this campaign, knew about our public forum at least three weeks before the event and thus had ample opportunity to prepare for it. I had even informed one board director, who lives in Coldstream, that he was welcome to attend, along with the others, to ask questions and provide information which he thought our members needed to know. I am left to surmise that the arguments in favour of an amalgamation study will not stand up to informed public scrutiny and that the GVGS did not want to be exposed in a public debate.

acting president Coldstream Ratepayers Association

Vernon artists design winning award for Okanagan arts celebration Morning Star Staff

Two Vernon area artists have designed and made the new sculpture that will be presented to the recipients of Okanagan Arts Awards in March. The Arts Council of the Central Okanagan (ARTSCO) revealed the new design Jan. 18, featuring a three-dimensional stainless steel sculpture titled Okanelemental, created by Julie Oakes (owner of Headbones Gallery in Vernon) with the help of Commonage black-

Philomena up for four Oscars For The Morning Star

The Vernon Film Society’s next film will be Philomena, showing at the Towne Cinema Monday. The film is nominated for four Oscars, including best picture as well as best actress for Judi Dench, adapted screenplay, and original score. Director Steven Frears (The Queen) teams with Dench (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Steve Coogan (The Trip) for this powerful true story of an unmarried Irish Catholic woman who, decades after being forced to give up her newborn son, embarks on a search to find him with the help of a BBC reporter. In 1950s Ireland, Catholic authorities shamed thousands of “fallen” women, including Philomena Lee, into giving up their children for adoption. After searching for 50 years, Philomena asks recently unemployed journalist Martin Sixsmith (Coogan) to help her. Determined to be positive, Philomena shares stories from her past, savouring every moment on the trip to meet her child Dench gives a tour-de-force performance as Philomena, perfectly complemented by Coogan. The stars share a natural chemistry, and their

While revealing some of the church’s darker moments, Philomena also reminds us that one of its greatest virtues is forgiveness. “Philomena is funny, moving, beautifully performed and directed with restraint and a wonderfully delicate touch,” said Mark Adams, with Screen International. Philomena screens Monday, Feb. 3 at the Towne Cinema at regular times of 5:15 and 7:45 p.m. Tickets are available one week ahead at the Towne and the Bean Scene for $7.

A new vision for midwifery and maternity care in B.C. VANCOUVER — Expanding the availability of midwifery in British Columbia by ensuring registered midwifes attend 35 per cent of the births in the province by 2020 would increase access to maternity care in rural communities, improve health outcomes and reduce health care costs, according to a report just released by the Midwives Association of British Columbia (MABC). “There is an urgent need to increase midwifery services and ensure they are fully integrated into the health care system to make it easier for women and families to access quality maternity care in their home communities across British Columbia,” said Ganga Jolicoeur, executive director of MABC. “‘Our New Vision for Midwifery and Maternity Care’ is intended to bridge the growing gap in maternity care, especially in rural, northern and First Nations communities.” By increasing the number of midwifeassisted births in B.C. to 35 per cent by 2020 and fully integrating midwifery services into B.C.’s health care system, the MABC’s vision offers: n Increased access to quality maternity care, especially in rural, northern and First Nations communities n Improvements in health outcomes for women and newborns n More options for women to choose

their maternity care provider n Reduced pressure on family physicians working in underserved communities n Reduced Caesarean rates and obstetrical interventions n A realistic and achievable solution to close the growing maternity care gap n Net cost savings of approximately $60 million that can go towards other health care priorities “Increased access to quality maternity care will lead to healthier babies, healthier moms and healthier families,” said Kelly Hayes, registered midwife and vice president of the MABC. “We believe British Columbians will support our vision because of the real health benefits and cost savings, estimated at $60 million by 2020 and $20 million annually after that. These savings could be used for other priorities in the health care system.” The MABC’s vision contains a series of recommendations that involve B.C.’s registered midwives working with the provincial government, regional health authorities, hospitals, other maternity care providers and the First Nations Health Authority. These recommendations include increasing the number of midwives by 16 per year above the status quo and funding a credentialing program that enables internationallytrained midwives to practise in B.C. The

recommendations are consistent with the provincial government’s approach, which, due to growing demand, is doubling the number of UBC trained graduating midwives from 10 to 20 by 2017. “The MABC’s vision document is timely and needed, particularly when factoring in that the average age of an obstetrician is almost 58, fewer and fewer family physicians are incorporating maternity care into their practices, and we’re not training enough midwives,” said Dr. Michael Klein, Professor Emeritus of Family Practice and Pediatrics, UBC. The recommendations would require an investment beginning in 2014/15 of about $3 million annually or $225 per birth per year, based on the projected annual number of births per year. The new vision is founded on the idea that inter-professional collaboration among maternity care providers will deliver the best outcomes for women, babies and families. Registered Midwives are funded as part of the health care system in B.C. and are experts in low-risk birth. With extensive training that focuses on pregnancy, birth and the postpartum for both mom and baby, midwives are a safe and recognized choice for maternity care in B.C., across Canada and around the world.

Gluten-free but sweet

W

hat's the the biggest health craze of our time, even though some doctors fear it’s creating real problems? Why, it's the gluten-free diet. And ever since cardiologist Dr. William Davis published his best selling book in 2011, Wheat Belly, an entire industry of gluten-free products has exploded onto the scene. Although I was unable to attend, Dr. Davis was in Vernon this past week, speaking on his experiences and research. I've read Cathi Litzenberger his book and understand and agree with much of his research. Anyone with celiac and other diseases or sensitivities of the intestinal tract already knows how important it is to avoid gluten. However it is not these people who are driving this new industry; it is people who are trying to avoid genetically altered food, and wheat is by far one of the most altered. It is important to realize, though, that most gluten-free processed foods that are substituted for wheat varieties, are high in simple carbohydrates with little food value and this is a real concern to many health professionals. Having said that, today I want to offer a couple of lovely dessert recipes today for everyone who has to avoid gluten, because heaven knows they never get their share of desserts. Grain-free Raspberry Sour Cream Crumble Cake Crust and crumbles: ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon raw coconut oil 6 large medjool dates (I used what I had) 1 cup toasted almond slices 1 cup coconut flour ¼ teaspoon sea salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Filling / topping: 1 egg ½ cup sour cream ¼ cup maple syrup OR honey OR agave 2 tablespoons coconut flour 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¾ bag of frozen raspberries (1 bag = 12oz / 340g) Defrost raspberries. Preheat oven to 325 F and grease the bottom of an 8½" springform or line with parchment paper. In small saucepan, slowly melt coconut oil on low heat. Chop dates into small pieces and process in blender or food processor. Add almond slices and process again. Add coconut flour, coconut oil, sea salt and vanilla extract and process until you have

a sticky-wet, crumbly consistency. If you pinch it, it should hold together. Set ¼ of the crust aside and press remainder into bottom of springform and up to about 1 inch on the side. For filling, beat egg; add sour cream, maple syrup, coconut flour and vanilla extract; mix well. It should be a thick, creamy consistency – if too runny, add another tablespoon of coconut flour. Pour filling over crust and spread out evenly. Cover with raspberries and add crumbles on top. Bake 40 - 45 mins. Make sure centre is cooked through. Allow to cool down before serving. Enjoy! Flourless Chocolate Cake 16 oz. solid dark chocolate (use your favourite GF dark chocolate bars) 1 cup organic light brown sugar, packed 1/2 cup organic white cane sugar 3/4 cup very hot strong coffee (or use espresso powder in very hot water) 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into pieces 2 tbsp. unsweetened organic cocoa powder 8 large organic free-range eggs, room temperature 1 tbsp. vanilla extract — yes, a tablespoon! Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare a 10-cup springform pan by lining the bottom with a circle of buttered parchment. Wrap the outside of the whole pan (underneath, to catch any leaks) with a big piece of foil. Break up the dark chocolate into pieces and pour the chocolate into the bowl of the food processor. Pulse until the chocolate breaks up into small bits. Add the sugar. Pulse until the chocolate and sugar turns into an even, sandy grain. Pour the hot water or coffee slowly into the feed tube as you pulse again. Pulse until the chocolate is melted. Magic! Add butter pieces and cocoa powder, and pulse to combine. Add eggs and vanilla, and process till smooth. The batter will be liquid and creamy. Pour batter into the lined springform pan. Bake at 350 F in the centre of the oven, till puffed and cracked and lovely, about 55 to 65 minutes. (Note: it took an hour and 15 minutes when I baked this at high altitude.) Use wooden toothpick to check centre of cake; pick should emerge clean, with maybe a crumb. Place cake pan on wire rack to cool. It will deflate. Don't worry! When cooled a bit, press on it gently with spatula to make it even, if you wish. Or not. When cake is completely cooled, cover and chill for at least three hours (best up to eight hours) until serving. Overnight is even better. Serve thin slices with drizzled chocolate sauce or a sprinkle of sifted powdered sugar. Garnish with fresh berries or mint leaves.

Truck recovered Morning Star Staff

Lake Country RCMP have recovered a pickup truck reported stolen in 2009. On Jan. 21 at 10:40 a.m., an officer conducted a routine traffic stop at Camp and Davidson roads and determined a a white Ford pickup truck had expired insurance. He also determined that the vehicle identification number did not match the registration papers produced by the male driver. Further investigation revealed that the truck had been reported stolen from Williams Lake in 2009. The 30-year-old Lake Country driver was taken into custody without incident. The 30-year-old man was driving without a valid driver’s licence and was subsequently issued multiple fines under the Motor Vehicle Act. The driver also faces a recommended criminal charge of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000. He is to appear in the Kelowna Law Courts March 31.

Lawyer

Q: A:

What’s the new law about Common Law Marriages in BC? Recent legislation in British Columbia has codified just what a common law marriage is and what the ramifications of living in common law are.

After two years of living together, or living together and having a child, you will be treated by the law almost the same as if you were actually married. In case of a break-up, the property-sharing regime is similar in common law as in a marital relationship.

Relationships may fail. To avoid any unpleasant surprises it is wise to have a cohabitation agreement early in the relationship when things start to turn ‘serious’. It can protect your assets and spells out the respective obligations of the parties. It beats having to go to court, pouring out your life story in public and having some person in a black robe make decisions for you that affect you for a life time.

Vipers make point versus pesky Cents Morning Star Staff

Eleven games left. Little room for error. That’s the situation for the Vernon Vipers as they chase the Salmon Arm SilverBacks and Merritt Centennials for the fourth and final playoff spot in the B.C. Hockey League Interior Division. With the exception of a home-and-home with the Langley Rivermen, the Vipers face teams in their division down the stretch. Vernon tied the host Cents 4-4 in double overtime Saturday and are six points ahead of Merritt, who have two games in hand. The fourth-place SilverBacks, 5-4 winners over the Surrey Brendan Persley Eagles Saturday night, are three points behind Vernon with one game in hand. The Vipers are 3-5-1-1 in their last 10 games. “You can fall asleep one weekend and you can end in fifth place,” said Viper associate Todosychuk coach Kris Mallette. “I just finished watching video trying to figure out what’s wrong with our team right now. Panic isn’t there. We haven’t played great since Christmas and we can’t put our finger on it. “Every team obviously goes through it and our season has been a roller coaster. We know that we can do it. We’re a very veteran team; we’re not a bunch of rookies, and it (blame) has to be shared by everybody.” The Vipers have sorely missed all-star forward Mason Blacklock with knee problems. Blacklock, traded from the Surrey Eagles, played his heart out with the Vipers’ playoff

chances over and done last year, and got off to a Crosby-like start in September being getting hurt. He sets the intensity bar for the Snakes, and resumed skating at Monday’s practice. D-man Riley Guenther, with his fifth just 98 seconds in, TJ Dumonceau, with his fourth, Logan Mick, with his fifth and Dexter Dancs, with the equalizer, his 20th, handled the Vipers’ offence at the pinball machine known as Nicola Valley Arena. IAN WEBSTER/BLACK PRESS SPORTS “Merritt’s an interesting Vipers’ goalie Danny Todosychuk flashes leather with Cents’ Daniel Nauchbar and Vernon defenceman Josh arena to get into, to say the Bryan on the doorstep Saturday night at Nicola Valley Arena.

Bombers gain tie Morning Star Staff

Riley Marchand’s second goal of the game, with her goalie on the bench for an extra attacker, lifted the Vernon Newalta U14B Bombers to a 9-9 tie with Salmon Arm in Thompson Okanagan Ringette League action Sunday at the Shaw Centre. Bryn Taylor-Hawes and Jillian Pipke gave the Bombers a 2-0 lead before the hosts roared back with four unanswered goals. Miranda Chapple cut the lead in half before Salmon Arm scored a pair to take a 6-3 lead at the break. Sophie Granley’s pair, and markers from TaylorHawes and Chapple, helped Vernon bounce back and earn a single point. “The Bombers showed great character to battle back in the second,” said the Bombers’ Blair Campbell, who also praised the outstanding play of U12 call-up netminder Kayla Summerfelt, and the great checking done by Makayla Vanderzwan. In Petite play Saturday, the Vernon DCT Chambers Roar stopped Westside 12-8. Roar offence was provided by Georgia Lannon (4+1), Julie Francis (2+2), Ashly Shwaluk (2+1), Emma Lochhead (two goals), Sierra Lochhead (1+1) and Makenzie Gilman (one goal). Amy Demetrick pitched in with an assist and Chayse Krause provided great hustle. Brooklyn Ashby played a great game in net. Nothing was decided in the all-Vernon U9 Bunnies division battle Saturday at the Priest Valley Arena, as the Purple Flames and Speedy Sweeties played to a 7-7 tie. Kennedy Jackson and Emily Gilman each had two goals for the Purple Flames. Kelowna U16A Force were a force on home ice

Saturday, as they downed the Vernon Rockstar U16A Adrenaline Rush 6-2 at the Capital News Centre. Kendra Ostafie scored both goals for the Rush, who tied the same Force 6-6 two weeks ago, and displayed great team play in the loss. Alex Drury, Shelby Connors, Hannah Popilchak, Maddie Powls, Taigan Radomske and Saige Woodliffe led the offensive charge while Ava Haldane, Maddy Percy, Caleb Pope and Saylor Martian took care of defensive duties. D-man Katelyn Paulin stepped in for regular goalie Garrett Adams, who missed the contest. In U12 action, the Vernon Advertising Works Victory lost 5-3 to Kelowna Kaos.

Kelowna Spitfires rumbled into the Priest Valley Arena to slay the Vernon Ice Dragons 10-3 in Novice division play. Rhys Taylor-Hawes scored two goals and Brooklyn Lewis scored one, assisted by Sierra Fernley, for the Victory. Rookie netminder Sadie Christensen made spectacular saves and was helped by strong, backchecking defensive players Kierra Newman, Miah Cohen and Amelia Johnson.

Coke boys claim crown Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Coca Cola Vipers shaded the North Delta Sun Devils 4-3 in Sunday’s final of their Vernon Winter Tier 2 Hockey Classic at Civic Arena. Down by two, the Vipers clawed back to equalize in the third on goals from Brendan Zupp and Carl Main. Goaltender Tristan Quiring made an uncharacteristic clear directly to a North Delta player who buried it for the go-ahead snipe. Main pulled the Vipers even with six minutes remaining. The clock wound down and with the crowd screaming “shoot”, Eamonn Miller ripped a shot from the goal line that found its way between the goalie’s pad and the post with 1.5 seconds remaining. Kaden Black produced three helpers. “That was a bizarre goal,” said Vernon head coach Larry Black. “He might have even been deeper than the goal line.” Quiring fed Black, who passed to Miller for a goal two minutes into overtime as the Vipers clipped the Winfield Bruins 5-4 in Sunday morning’s semifinals. It was a back and forth battle leaving Vernon down by one late in the third. With the goalie pulled, call-up Bryce Pyle levelled the score with 22 seconds to play, forcing OT. Black and Miller each scored twice with Logan Imrich drawing two assists. “We’ve instilled a culture in our team whereby everybody is playing for everybody else

and it seems to be working,” said coach Black. “The kids just kept working hard for one another all weekend and were rewarded.” Quiring was summoned by the KIJHL Sicamous Eagles Friday night and went the distance in a 6-5 overtime win over the Revelstoke Grizzlies. He started and played half the game in the Eagles’ 5-3 loss Saturday to the 100 Mile House Wranglers. The Coke boys, who were without regulars Jack Pawsey, Easton Jones and Hayden Chase, quickly recovered from Friday’s opening loss and grounded the Nanaimo Clippers 8-1 Saturday morning behind Miller’s hat trick. Josh DeCoffe, with a deuce, Logan Revell, Braden Gilowski and call-up Brian Ferguson each supplied singles in front of affiliate Jared Larsen. Main rung up three assists, while Pyle, Jarrett Campbell and Imrich each had two. Black bagged four goals as the Coke boys then ambushed Victoria 8-1. Zupp pocketed a pair, while Main and Imrich added singles in front of Louis Springer. Miller and Cameron Hitch each posted two helpers. The Sladen Moore Bantam A Female Lakers tied the Prince George Cougars 2-2 in their last regular-season game Saturday at Kal Tire Place.

The Vipers pressed with their new forecheck and stunned Kelowna with their tenacity, keeping the game scoreless at the ice clean. Kobe Grant fended off numerous shots. The Vipers kept their splendid play going Sunday and bounced the Kamloops Blazers 6-2 at Brocklehurst Arena. Trevor Kennedy, from Ben King, jumpstarted the Watkin Motors’ scoring, followed by King, Gavin Fleck and Lachlan O’Keefe each with solo goals. Rowan Miller slammed home a King feed and then King slid one in from Tanner Brown. The Nixon Wenger Vipers came second during round-robin play at the Castlegar Tier 3 Pee Wee Tournament, but bowed 6-1 to South Okanagan in Sunday’s semifinal. Tanner Wright put Vernon in front before South Okanagan tied it up. South Okanagan took advantage of some early Viper penalty trouble and notched two goals within a minute. Goaltender Tanner Witt kept it close with several great saves. The Vipers brushed back the West Kelowna Warriors 5-1 Saturday night in what was probably the best team effort of the year. Cole Johnson (2), Nick Teale, Evan Trottier and Wright handled the offence, while Ben Imrich chipped in with two assists. Jacob Green took the MVP. The Vipers fell 6-4 to South Okanagan Saturday morning, going down 4-0 at the ice clean. Johnson (2), speedy d-man Kael Black and Wright earned goals, while Evan Trottier collected the MVP.

H&L Glass take Atom C crown

It was a golden weekend for the H&L Glass Vipers, as they claimed the Atom C crown at the K-Town Showdown with a gutsy 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Thunderbirds. The Vipers worked especially hard on coach Brent Bond’s birthday, outshooting Vancouver in each period. Maddex Minard’s feverish forechecking forced a Vancouver defender to play the puck into his own net, while the goalkeeper was distracted by Jordyn Morris’s net presence. With 20 seconds left in the period, however, Vancouver tied it. Eight minutes into the middle frame, Vernon’s snake-bit powerplay went back to work and finally clicked. Nick Noren slipped a check behind the net, and put the puck on a platter for Minard, who drilled in his second. Again, Vancouver wasted little time levelling the score. Two minutes later, Chris Bond won an offensive zone faceoff back to Morris, who teed up Liam Remple at the left point. Remple blasted his cannon on net, and the rebound found MVP Chris Bond, who buried the golden goal. Showing their championship heart, the Junior Vipers made the lead stand up through two penalty kills and some anxious moments in the third. In the latter stages, Teja Sheldrake came up with a pair of game-savers, flashing his trapper and left pad to silence the Thunderbirds. D-partners Quinn Soon and Brock Holliday played the shutdown role to perfection, allowing no goals in the final three games of the tourney. In the opener at Rutland Arena, Vernon took down the host Kelowna Rockets, 4-1. Trailing 1-0 late in the first, Vernon goalie Jaret Cooper bailed out his team with an unbelievable right pad save. Perfect the rest of the way, Cooper bought some time as the Vipers found their scoring touch. Eight minutes into the second, Cash Anderson finally put one in the bank, roofing a relay from Emma Elders and Noren. It was all Vernon in the third. Flying down the left wing, Elders fired the winner past the goalie’s ear. Game MVP Anderson then turned a 1-on-4 shorthanded play into a goal. Next, rushing defenceman Liam Remple split the dee and scored on a dizzying deke. Teja Sheldrake shut out Salmon Arm 3-0, twice stopping the Silverbacks in cold to keep it scoreless. Stalwart d-man Adam Bourgeois snuffed out scoring chances, blocking shots and passes with his active stick and body. Morris put Vernon on the board, punching home a Minard rebound.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder THAT WAS TOUGH; THIS IS “IMPOSSIBLE” Henri-Frederic Amiel, a 17th-century Swiss philosopher and poet, said, “Doing easily what others find difficult is talent; doing what is impossible for talent is genius.” Yesterday’s deal was difficult; today’s requires genius. But as you have been warned to look for something unusual, maybe you will see the winning play for South. He is in three no-trump after East has overcalled in hearts. West leads the heart jack and East encourages with his nine. What should declarer do? South’s negative double showed exactly four spades. His second-round jump to three no-trump was a tad

precipitate. He should have made a game-forcing twoheart cue-bid. Then, perhaps, North-South would have reached five clubs, which would have been bulletproof with this layout. (Even four spades can be made!) South starts with eight top tricks: four spades, one heart (given trick one), two diamonds and one club. Obviously, numerous more winners are available from the clubs. And if East has the courtesy to hold the king for his overcall, South might take all 13 tricks. However, note what happens if declarer makes the natural-looking play of winning the first trick, playing a spade to dummy’s king, and running the club 10 (or playing low to his jack). West produces the club king,

then leads his second heart. East takes four tricks in that suit for down one. To make his contract, South must duck (lose) the first trick! Yes, West may lead his second heart and East can win with his ace, but dummy’s 10 is still a stopper. And East has no entry card.
