Winter Carnival will rock in 2015 Morning Star Staff

Watch out for Elvis, Elton John and the Boss. Vernon Winter Carnival’s theme for 2015 will be Carnival of Rock and Roll. “We had almost 75 theme suggestions from the community towards the 55th Vernon Winter Carnival,” said Diana Williamson, executive director. “There was a lot of deliberation over the final choice, with the board feeling rock and roll will lend itself to a lot of eras

Classic rock will take to the stage during the North Okanagan’s largest summer celebration. Nazareth and Trooper will be the headliners during the A&W Funtastic Music Festival June 27 to 30 at the DND grounds in Vernon. “This year’s lineup of bands will get everyone swaying to the music and singing along to familiar songs” said Brett Kirkpatrick, Funtastic Sports Society president, during a sponsors reception Thursday. Nazareth will take to the stage on the Friday night while Saturday night will feature tribute bands such as Aerosmith Rocks and Who Made Who, which pays homage to AC/DC. On Sunday night, it will be Trooper. Local bands will also be on the roster each night, including Lefty, Boulevard, Blaze of Glory, Young’Uns, Redfish, the Chevelles, the Legendary Lake Monsters and the Goods. Ticket for the music festival are $25 for a day and $50 for the weekend. They go on sale May 15 at Save On Foods or by contacting office@funtastic.org. The Funtastic slowpitch festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and it has gone from five to 216 teams. “Who would have ever thought that a small bragging rights competition would grow into the largest slowpitch tournament in Canada,” said Kirkpatrick. The tournament and music festival raise money for Funtastic’s community grants program and over the years, $1.5 million has been donated back to the community in support of sports and recreation. “This year, in celebration of the 30 years, a total of $30,000 will be granted.”

Economy showing recovery signs richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s economy appears to be shaking off the recession. The City of Vernon is reporting a sharp increase in construction activity so far during 2014. “Building permit revenue is up so far,” said Kim Flick, planning and building manager. For the first three months of the year, there

have been 62 building permits issued worth $10 million, compared to 54 permits valued at $7.3 million in 2013. Most of the activity is coming from singlefamily residential and commercial construction. Mayor Rob Sawatzky welcomes the shift away from the recent economic downturn. “The consensus has been that we scraped

along the bottom for a couple of years and we’re moving our way up,” he said. “We’re at the mercy of large forces and forestry is improving dramatically.” The increased development comes at the same time the city is proceeding with a revision of the official community plan, which outlines land use. Council has now sup-

ported the OCP’s guiding principles, although Coun. Catherine Lord isn’t pleased with the order in which they are listed. “The community doesn’t exist unless there is some form of economy going on,” she said. The first guiding principles referred to protecting the environment and ensuring a range of housing while economic development

Stolen credit cards surface in shops Morning Star Staff

Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP are advising local merchants to be aware of a group of people who appear to be targeting local business with stolen credit cards. Save-On-Foods in Vernon told police Tuesday that a group of men made purchases in their store. “Two men were able to purchase a large amount of prepaid gift cards,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “When the third tried to buy more, his credit card was rejected and they all left quickly.” The two main suspects were described as an African-American man wearing a dark blue hoodie, jeans and was approximately six-feet tall.

Victims identified Morning Star Staff

The B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a Vernon couple who died in a motorcycle accident on Westside Road Sunday evening. Carol Joyce Thor, and her spouse, Brian Thor, both 57, were identified Wednesday as the victims. Brian Thor was the driver and Carol Thor the passenger on a motorcycle which was involved in a collision with an SUV at about 9 p.m. Vernon RCMP say the southbound SUV pulled out to pass a vehicle along a divided line at around 9 p.m. near Mary’s Emerald Bay Road when it collided with the Thor’s northbound motorcycle. The Thors died at the scene. The driver of the SUV, a Vernon woman in her 20s, was not injured. The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate the accident.

The other was described as a Caucasian man. They left the store after the card was rejected. “When our officer went to investigate this file he learned that there were three African-American men, all appeared to have extremely dark skin, and one Caucasian man,” said Molendyk. “All of them appeared to be in their 30s.” The RCMP is working with store security to determine if photos of the suspects can be obtained. “The Vernon-North Okanagan detachment would like to alert all businesses about this type of activity, and contact your nearest police department if you experience this type of activity,” said Molendyk.

was several points below that. Staff insists the order of the issues doesn’t reflect importance and all items are considered equal in status. However, Lord insists that residents will look at the list and believe the top items are the city’s priorities. “Economic viability should be No. 1 because that’s what allows people to live in the community,” she said.

of reality is shaped by our own thoughts and beliefs,” said Kolibaba, who has been influenced by a variety of sources including Wayne Dyer. “When I changed how I looked at things, the things I looked at changed. I went from creating obstacles to opportunities.” Kolibaba believes many people don’t reach full potential because they are focused on acquiring possessions or what others think about them. “Our whole lives, we’re chasing what others have selected for us,” he said, adding that it was his mother who originally challenged his perceptions of life. “She said your biggest accomplishment isn’t what you do (career achievements), it’s how you treat the people around you.” In the book, Kolibaba recounts his time commanding a United Nations mission in 1999 in Kosovo as the country fought for its independence from Serbia.

Retired RCMP officer Randy Kolibaba has authored the new book The Lies Behind the Truth. He will have a signing at the Coles at the Village Green Centre Saturday. common place. “I found myself, like many other of my contingent members, increasingly reaching

for alcohol to cope with the inherent stress. I felt that getting drunk would allow me to forget or dull the anger,

which it never did,” he writes. Kolibaba ultimately returned to Canada and took over the Vernon RCMP detachment in 2000. But the horrors of Kosovo remained. “I would wake up crying and drenched in sweat. Throughout the day, and without any advanced warning, I would be consumed by sadness and a feeling of helplessness. I thought I was going insane,” he wrote. “It wasn’t until years later that I was diagnosed with acute posttraumatic stress disorder.” Career challenges are also covered at length, as well as relationship breakdowns within the family. “There have been so many years of my life that I wasted carrying around a chip on my shoulder. When I think back, I have to ask myself, ‘Why? What good did it serve?’ I have no good answer other than that I let my ego dictate how I was going to react,” he wrote.

Kolibaba says people must learn not to be preoccupied with what others around them are doing or what may be on the schedule for next week. “We forget to live in that little bit of moment,” he said. Kolibaba’s goal through the book is to encourage compassion. “I hope they can change their lives if they change the way they think,” he said. “I’m not talking about wearing rose coloured glasses. I’m talking about caring for people.” The Lies Behind the Truth is available online and is being distributed to book stores. “I’ve been overwhelmed by the response. The feedback has been crazy,” said Kolibaba, who is booked for speaking engagements and has already started writing a second book. Kolibaba will hold a book signing at the Coles at Vernon’s Village Green Centre Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

North Okanagan officials question MMBC richard rolke Morning Star Staff

A shift in recycling is getting a rough ride from elected officials. Regional District of North Okanagan staff made a presentation Wednesday about Multi Material B.C., which has been mandated by the government to take over residential recycling services from local jurisdictions. “Why is our staff using tax dollars to Kevin Acton explain this? Where is the contractor?” said director Kevin Acton. “We shouldn’t be discussing it because someone else will make the profit and be managing it.”

RDNO staff insist they want to ensure a smooth transition for residents, and it was pointed out that MMBC presented to Enderby and Armstrong councils. MMBC is a stewardship group of retailers and producers that will take over collection and recycling of packaging under provincial regulations May 19. “They will use the same routes and schedules,” said Nicole Kohnert, RDNO’s manager of regional engineering services. The biggest change is single-family residents will no longer use clear bags for curbside collection. Instead, each home will be given two plastic bins. “The top is open so weather protection is not possible,” said director Mike Macnabb, who is concerned wet material will be thrown in the landfill. “Who is responsible for blown material because we get wind around here?” Director Bob Fleming suggests the new

system could lead to residents trashing recyclables because the bins have inadequate space. “A bag is twice as large as the bins and sometimes I have seven of them because the packaging is bulky,” he said. However, Kohnert says another container, such as a box, can be used for excess material. Another major issue is apartment buildings are not covered by MMBC’s mandate and they must make arrangements with a hauler for collection. “I am concerned they’re not being treated the same as a residence,” said director Shirley Fowler. Many RDNO board members are questioning what motivated the government to change the recycling model. “We’ve done a great job with recycling so this wasn’t necessary,” said director Jackie Pearase.

Swan Lake development drives debate richard rolke

Morning Star Staff

There are some concerns about how the northern gateway to Vernon is developing. The Regional District of North Okanagan board has given third reading to Mike Macnabb rezoning so a self-storage facility can be built in the Swan Lake corridor, but there is some

opposition. “It’s a very poor use of land,” said director Mike Macnabb. The easterly portion of the property fronting on Pleasant Valley Road is currently zoned service commercial. If the rezoning is successful, the applicant is proposing a 107unit self-storage in four buildings. “I understanding the zoning (that exists) but this is some of the best farm land in the area,” said Macnabb. “I understand the need for commercial and a tax base but this is not a good use of land.”

Macnabb questions whether self-storage units provide any direct benefit for locals as they often cater to tourists or seasonal residents. “We’re just a depository for toys,” he said of recreational vehicles and boats. Macnabb believes there needs to be a discussion about the long-term development of the Swan Lake corridor. “We have a beautiful lake and right across the highway is a blight on the landscape,” he said. The elected representative for

Transportation issues rolled into one richard rolke Morning Star Staff

will keep community volunteers active in the process. “It will make it a lot easier for the people involved to get a quorum,” said Spiers, adding that occasionally there aren’t enough people present for a meeting to occur. The city looked at its internal structure after the 2013 core services review by KPMG suggested there were too many committees.

Swan Lake isn’t thrilled about self-storages either but admits there is little RDNO can do to prevent the proposal “It’s an allowable use under the (official community plan) designation,” said director Bob Fleming. “They comply with everything so our hands are somewhat tied.” Final approval for the rezoning application is still required.

Major construction proceeds for PV Road Morning Star Staff

Vernon motorists are being advised of a change in traffic patterns. Beginning Monday and continuing into the fall, Pleasant Valley Road construction from 41st to 48th avenues will commence. It will include road reconstruction, new water main, replacement

of storm and sanitary sewer piping, and new sidewalk. “Phase one on 41st Avenue to 16th Street is planned to start Monday and will take about 12 weeks to complete,” said Tanya Laing Gahr, the city’s communications co-ordinator. “Phase two from 16th Street to 48th

Avenue will last about eight weeks. The active construction area on Pleasant Valley Road will be closed to through-traffic but open to local residents and business traffic. Detours will be in effect for the duration of construction.” Businesses along the construction route will be open and accessible.

Save the CBC

have a new theme song to plug to Canadians about our country’s national broadcast company. It goes something like this, whistled along to that tune Cups (from the film Pitch Perfect): “You’re gonna miss it when it’s gone.” You’re gonna miss the muckraking of Marketplace; the barbed tongue and bald head of Kevin O’Leary (OK, maybe not HIM too much); Adam Beach’s earnest looks on Arctic Air; ranter and raver Rick Mercer; and the calm, cool and collected interviewer George Stroumboulopoulos... Kristin Froneman (This could be the last time I ever have to look up how to spell that dude’s name. He is crossing the line to Rogers to host Hockey Night in Canada, after all, and since I cover arts and entertainment, it’s bye-bye, George...) Which reminds me, you’re gonna miss the weekday broadcasts of Hockey Night on basic cable, unless you get Sportsnet 360 or some other Rogers configuration. (Don’t they own most Eastern/Central Canadian channels?) And then there are the 657 people who will miss their jobs, ranging from radio and TV broadcasters, technicians, web editors, and the residuals resulting from the fact the CBC/Radio Canada is crumbling due to a reported $130 million shortfall. But there could be more on the chopping block. As comedian Ron James, the host of his own CBC comedy show the past five seasons, told me recently, the future for everyone looks unclear as “you can’t run a network on peanuts...” It’s already been announced that the public broadcaster will no longer compete for the

At rAndoM

rights to air professional sports and has cancelled planned expansions into new regions. The network is cutting $13.3 million from its news budget, resulting in 115 job losses. Canadian artists will lose out as CBC Radio will also reduce some of its live music performances and some local musical performance shows will be cancelled. Now I know some of you will be glad to wipe your hands of that left-leaning crown corporation, which considering who our government is right now, is a bit of a contradiction in terms. And, of course, it’s one of the main reasons the CBC keeps losing money; that and the loss of hockey.... However, it’s really a bad day when our nation is in jeopardy of losing homegrown media sources, content and those famous CBC personalities. Say what you will about Don Cherry, and those hideous ties, but I’d rather see him “controlled” at the CBC than having him sound off at a private broadcaster or specialty sports channel. Although I love our neighbours to the south, and that includes family, I am concerned about many of our assets heading south of the border, or being inundated with more American content on my local stations. If you’d rather become the 51st state and be subjected to more Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, and Bill O’Reilly, be my guest. I’d rather have my sour Grapes, or wily O’Leary, thank you. It’s not easy to dig up the dirt on some of the atrocities being committed around the world, just ask Linden MacIntyre, Mark Kelley, Gillian Findlay and Bob McKeown of CBC’s the fifth estate, but without them, the bad guys win, and we law-abiding Canadians lose. I know cuts to all these programs haven’t happened yet, and that I may be fear mongering a little, but I say to all Canadians, save the CBC, ‘cause you’re gonna miss it when it’s gone.

There’s no question that the North Okanagan’s economy has experienced challenges since the recession of 2008. That’s why the latest statistics coming out of Vernon city hall are extremely positive. For the first three months of the year, there have been 62 building permits issued worth $10 million, compared to 54 permits valued at $7.3 million in 2013. Most are residential and commercial in nature. That is good news as so much of the economy is tied to housing construction, whether it is the building trades, realtors, landscapers or retail sales such as furniture. These new properties also bolster property tax revenue. New commercial development creates much-needed jobs, especially at the entry level. However, difficulties still remain. Year-to-date, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation reports there have been 30 housing starts in Vernon compared to 41 starts during the first three months of 2013. Another sign that the recession continues to linger is the fact that many residents continue to head north to seek employment. The economy is so important to the future of residents that it’s identified as a guiding principle in Vernon’s revised official community plan. However, city officials must be clear to residents that there is very little they can do to encourage entrepreneurship. Under provincial legislation, the city cannot benefit business by exempting property taxes or providing free land. International and national trade pacts must be followed. The primary role of the city is to streamline the approval process for development and trim any other regulatory processes. In the end, the latest building permit figures out of city hall are extremely positive, but it will still take some time to fully recover.

INTERSECTION WOES Re; Stickle Road and Highway 97 It's a perfect place for a well-designed roundabout. Nick Jordan HEALTH CARE COMES FIRST Regarding Brent Applegath's letter, I have a few things to bring to his attention. If you think you are hard done by, quit your whining and get a job as a nursing assistant at Vernon Jubilee Hospital for a week. The nurses there have a heck of a lot more difficult time than you'll ever know. Yet they do a fantastic job against all odds — insufficient staff, long hours in a highly stressful situation, insufficient beds and other facilities and overcrowding but they remain cheerful, pleasant and considerate to all of their patients. When will you teachers, who are so quick to complain, wake up to the fact that the government is strapped for enough cash to go around to all of the organizations who depend on it for funding? There are numerous others who are every bit as deserving as you think you are for priority treatment. The health system, for one, is a heck of a lot more important. Yes, smaller classes are more desirable but then more classes have to be provided and teachers to staff them. Where do you think the government is going to get the money to pay for all this? We are getting very tired of seeing teachers using our kids as a political weapon for more money and to brainwash parents that the government doesn't care?

Museum offers more than old stuff

year ago I visited the Greater Vernon Museum for the first time. I expected to see the usual old stuff, which I did. I saw other things I didn't expect and was interested in like the bottled water display showing the good and bad of each company that sells them. Also, there was a comic book section and other things like the old clock that I had read about in the paper. I enjoyed my time there with the staff, who were very helpful and knowledgeable. They also let me know about some upcoming lectures which I didn't expect them to have.

The first one I attended was about bugs. It's held in a small room which seats about 30 people. For any reader who is not aware, teachers have one of the very best pension plans, with benefits, in the country, so Mr Applegath, face up to the fact that as others have to make do with less, so can you. You are doing a lot better than many others. I will vote top priority for more money to the health system over teachers at any time. N. Tyler A RESPONSE In a recent Reel Reviews, the writers did a review of the new movie Son of God. I have not seen the film yet, but would like to offer a brief response to, “A tale already told." According to Taylor and Howe, the story of Jesus is “nothing new." Granted, a story which has held its own for more than 2,000 years is definitely not new to the film industry. The writers may not realize ("...this film preaches to the choir...") that the life, teachings and historical significance of Jesus is actually new and relevant to countless individuals who may meet him for the first time through this film. With more than 67 per cent of Canadians stating Christianity as their religion of choice (Statistics Canada 2011), and many more searching for meaning in their lives, I choose to differ on the need for this film to exist. A reference by Taylor to Jesus as, “a man with magical powers," is an offense to Jesus’ followers. Also, the use of "amen” by Howe at the conclusion of the piece, sums up a lack of basic human respect for Christian practices.

N. McGregor GREAT SERVICE We would like to congratulate the local law enforcement officers for some very efficient service. One early Sunday morning, around 2 a.m. we had a couple of people trying to break in to our house by hammering on the front door and waking everybody up. After phoning, it took less than five minutes for them to show up with a dog team. I believe they apprehended the two suspects and let them cool off in the cell. It is very re-assuring to have them around when you need them. I for one would not like the job dealing with crooks on a daily basis. It is a thankless job . Again, thank you for a great service. Kurt Amsler ROAD WOES I can no longer stay quiet about the condition of Creighton Valley Road in Lumby. It looks more like an extremely bad, pothole riddled gravel road than a road that was just paved in September 2013. There are going to be accidents soon because everyone is driving on one side of the road. I was towing the horse trailer loaded with horses down the road and when I hit the long stretch of pot holes, it was nearly impossible to navigate through. This is an absolute disaster and something

me get over my long-time fear of spiders. The next one I went to was on how to make cheese, which we all did, and it was good. It was good enough to make it at home which I still do. Recently, I went to a lecture on bees. This was very informative and the small room was packed as were the other shows. So what I'm trying to say is that the museum isn't just a place to see old stuff. Once, maybe twice, but it's for people to get together and learn about all kinds of interesting things. It's not just a place to see but a place to be. Tim Presslaber has to be done soon.

HOSPITAL BEDS I was beginning to think I was the only one disappointed to read that completion of the top two floors of Vernon's hospital will add only 14 beds overall. Why so many private rooms, (60)? It's hardly worth all of the fuss fundraising to accommodate so few additional beds. At least Don Rollins noticed. Lorraine Leonard

Water plan draws criticism JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Doubts continue to surface over Greater Vernon’s master water plan, especially in advance of November’s $70 million borrowing referendum. The fact that no peer review will be conducted has some local politicians questioning the success of the referendum. “By not having the peer review you jeopardize the referendum,” said Coldstream Mayor Jim Garlick. “I don’t know if the electorate is going to pass this one and if it comes back it will really be looked at.” The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee recently decided a peer review of the plan wasn’t necessary. Vice-chairperson Gyula Kiss, who is a Coldstream councillor, had pushed for a peer review and had the support of his council. “I’ve worked hundreds of hours on this,” said Kiss, who has extensively studied the region’s water plans and fee structures. “I thought it should actually be staff that recommend a peer review.” Coun. Richard Enns also isn’t impressed that the plan isn’t getting a second look. “Peer reviews are mandatory in the province of Ontario,” said Enns, who was informed of such after his father-in-law read The Morning Star article stating that no review would be undertaken.

Open House: 2014 Sanitary Rehabilitation — 35 Street - 26 Avenue to 28 Avenue and 27 Avenue — 35 Street to BX Creek (West 120m)

“I don’t know if the electorate is going to pass this one.” — Jim Garlick

The visiting relative, who works in the field, told Enns that due to the high cost of such plans, Ontario doesn’t want any mistakes. A major issue with the plan is the $26.5 million needed for filtration at the Duteau Creek treatment plant. “Duteau only treats 20 per cent of the domestic drinking water, 80 per cent goes onto the fields,” said Coun. Maria Besso, who would also like to see more discussion at GVAC. “I feel we’re doing a disservice to the electorate.” Even though the Interior Health Authority is trying to force Greater Vernon to put in filtration at Duteau right now, things could change said Garlick. Other regions are facing similar regulations and pushing back, therefore he says the IHA is looking at outcomes differently. And that is why he doesn’t believe any sudden water changes should be made. “We should be proceeding with caution here,” said Garlick. “I don’t think we need to rush into anything at this time.”

Gort’s moving ahead MARTHA WICKETT Black Press

Seven months after their world was shaken, the owners of Gort’s Gouda cheese farm are still working to get their business back on solid ground. “It’s been a tough haul. We’re working hard at rebounding, it’s looking positive. It’s going to be a long haul, but that’s okay,” said Kathy Wikkerink, who owns the farm with her spouse Gary. In February, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued a report on its food safety investigation at the farm. It was initiated on Sept. 14, 2013 following a cluster of E.coli 0157:H7 illnesses that were believed to be related to consumption of cheese products from Gort’s. Twenty-one people were eventually reported with E.coli-related illness and recovered, while a Vernon woman died. Pinpointing the contamination couldn’t be done. “Despite extensive efforts, the CFIA concluded that there was no evidence available to confirm the source of the E.coli 0157:H7 contamination,” states the report. The findings are frustrating for the family. “Even our staff say the same, it would have been nice if we knew what caused it and then we could address it, but that didn’t happen,” said Kathy. The report continues: “The CFIA identified areas for improvements at the processing facility and requested

Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm to submit a corrective action plan. The company was requested to make enhancements in sanitation practices, equipment design and building maintenance.” It adds that, “all food safety concerns identified during the investigation have been corrected. Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm corrected other administrative and non-food safety related issues within accepted time frames.” Kathy says the bulk of the requirements for the business involved paper work, “bigger paper trails.” Under root cause analysis, the report points to raw milk cheese products. “Overall evidence indicated that there were a number of opportunities for contamination to occur in the earlier stages of the raw milk cheese manufacturing process,” states the report. “The potential for contamination during cutting, handling and packaging was also found to be a possible risk factor.” The CFIA is now carrying out routine inspections of the facility. “We still have the confidence we’re doing our due diligence. It’s not a big deal,” Kathy said of the inspections. “We were able to keep our licence and keep doing what we’re doing. The business will be changing its name to Grass Root Dairies, she said, a name that was part of their farm in Tappen and a change that was in the works this past summer. Now, the timing is right. Kathy says she

remains committed to producing “real food – your basics, your milk, vegetables, your meat, what you grow in your garden, your grains.” Overall, she says: “It was an eye-opening experience for our whole staff and family... You don’t do anything that would make it happen, but there’s always room for improvement and that’s what we’re working on now.”

“Professionalism” I am well aware that due to my personal circumstances my file was a difficult one for you to deal with and yet you handled it with great care and professionalism. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the future brighter for my two daughters and me; we will be ever grateful to you for making our dream come true. Thank you, Deb. - K.C.

Armstrong proposes minimal tax increase ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Armstrong residents will be facing a small tax hike in 2014. City staff is recommending a 2.75 per cent property tax increase that equated to $20.75 for the average assessed residential property. “There are two components to the increase,” said Terry Martens, Armstrong’s

chief financial officer. “The three-quarters of a per cent hike is for operations. The other two per cent is for road infrastructure replacement. It will be transferred to the roads and drainage reserve.” The city’s proposed operating budget for 2014 is $5.73 million, but does not include capital projects. The total capital budget for the year

is $1.34 million, with includes street, curbs, funding coming from storm sewer, water reserves, and sanifederal and tary sewer, provincial at a progrants, operjected cost ations and of $740,000. developers. That project E i g h t is slated to major capital start May 5. projects are There will planned for be changes Terry Martens this year, with to water and the biggest sewer fees, being the Dunn Road and no service level reconstruction, which changes in the 2014

budget. Residential garbage fees will go up 2.4 per cent, or $1.80 for each home. However, there will be a 54.6 decrease in residential recycling fees, amounting to $10.41 for each home for the year. “This is due to the end of the regional district/city involvement in residential recycling in May,” said Martens.

The city’s operating revenue will increase $600,000 from last year, and there will be an operating expense increase of $700,000 from last year’s actual expenses. That will include a lump-sum sewer debt reduction payment of $361,000 as the city has a chance to repay debt five years early. “It’s very rare that these opportunities come up but when we do get them, we try to take that option and save a bunch of interest,” said Martens. The city’s debt per capita will reduce from $154 per person to $63, a number Martens termed “very low” for a municipality.

Other proposed major capital projects in Armstrong’s five-year plan, running through 2018, include Okanagan Street reconstruction between Patterson Avenue and Wood Avenue in 2015, water main replacements in 2015 and 2016, reconstruction of Willowdale Drive, Jarvis Street and Jarvis Crescent in 2017 and cemetery expansion in 2018. The City of Armstrong must still pass the five-year plan. It is expected to do so at a special meeting of council May 5 at 4 p.m. Cities must have their budgets into the province by May 15.

Slow start for building houses Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s house construction industry continues to experience challenges. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation reports that there were eight housing starts in March, down from 10 during the same month in 2013. Of the eight starts, all were single-detached units and no multiple starts were reported. Year-to-date, there have been 30 starts in Vernon compared to 41 starts during the first three months of 2013.

Oyama resident faces charges related to explosives Morning Star Staff

An Oyama man has now been charged following his arrest in September 2013 for allegedly possessing and making explosive devices. Early in the last week of August 2013, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit B.C. received a tip that a man was making explosive devices in his West Kelowna home and was in the process of moving to a home in Oyama. CFSEU-BC investigators arrested the man without incident at his home on Aug. 28 and search warrants were executed at both the West Kelowna and Oyama homes. Officers found what was described as “bomb-making equipment” in the Oyama home that consisted of modified timers, batteries, igniters, dismantled shotgun shells, a container of black powder, and small wooden boxes fitted with wiring. No fully-built bombs or explosive devices were found. Also found in the searches were several compound bows, a crossbow, brass knuckles, two semi-automatic assault- style rifles with over-capacity magazines, as well as a small amount of marijuana. It was discovered that the man was also bound by a prohibition order involving explosive materials, devices, and weapons. Following his arrest, he was remanded into custody and transported to Alberta regarding an unrelated criminal matter. John Jason Neufeld, 36, of Oyama, has been charged with one count of possession of an explosive substance, one count of possession of an explosive substance while prohibited, one count of possession of a crossbow while prohibited, and one count of possession of ammunition while prohibited. Neufeld is currently not in custody and his next court appearance is scheduled for April 28 in Kelowna court. CFSEU-BC says there was, and remains,

absolutely no indication or information to support that the inves-

tigation has any links to terrorism or extremism. CFSEU-BC’s investi-

gation was focused solely on the possible gangrelated criminal activity

and this investigation falls within the mandate of CFSEU-BC; to target,

investigate, prosecute, disrupt, and dismantle the organized crime

Vipers taking week reprieve Express celebrate sweep as they prepare for the Westerns in Dauphin Morning Star Staff

Head coach/GM Jason Williamson will hide some Easter eggs for his young daughter and visit with in-laws in between checking out the Stanley Cup playoffs on TV. Captain Ryan Renz will spend Easter with family in the Kootenays, while his teammates will also be home with their loved ones for the holiday. The Vernon Vipers will digest turkey, ham, chocolate and a crushing loss to the Coquitlam Express in the B.C.

Ella Brown of Armstrong is the Athlete of the Week at Simon Fraser University following her performance at the 2014 Emilie Mondor Invitational in Burnaby. Brown, a freshman, won the triple jump competition in a jump of 11.41 metres. Her distance was both a meet and stadium record. She had six jumps and managed to get Ella Brown five in, going fault, 11.00m, 11.33m, 11.41m, 11.28m and 11.37m She currently boasts the second farthest distance of any triple jumper in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, and is less than 20cm from a provisional qualifying distance for the NCAA Division II Championships. Said Brown on the SFU website: “I was a little nervous because I faulted my first jump, and last week (in California) I was having some trouble with faulting, so it went pretty well today. I’m happy with the result....I just want to be consistent and feel good about what I’m doing.” Brown is at a California meet this weekend.

Flag football open to youngsters

Vernon Minor Football Association started its first-ever flag football season Sunday in Kelowna with six teams of boys and girls ages 7-15 playing exhibition action at the Mission Sports Complex. The season runs until mid June and teams will then play in a 300-team open provincial tournament in Kelowna. Each team plays twice on game days and practices once a week. “Flag football is a sport which is a great introduction to football for everybody to enjoy, said minor football president Ed Huber. “Having fun and getting in shape is the main focus. “The field is only 30 yards wide and 60 yards long and there are five players from each team on the field at once. Flag football is a 100 per cent non-contact sport.” Every offensive player on the field is eligible to catch the ball. On opening day, the Magnums U10s White, the U12 Blues and U16s all split their games, while the U14 Magnums Blues and Whites went 0-4. If you are interested in playing flag football this spring, e-mail Ed Huber at president@vernonfootball.ca as new players are still being accepted.

Midget B Legends show promise

The Nicola Valley (Merritt) outlasted the North Okanagan Legends 6-4 in Midget B lacrosse action Sunday at Nor-Val Sports Centre. It was 1-1 after one period with Darien Ottesen scoring for the Legends before leaving the game after being hit with a blistering shot from Nicola Valley’s Marcelo. Nicola Valley pulled ahead 4-3 in the second period with both North Okanagan goals coming from speedy and skilled Jake Pelletier. The Merritt crew pulled ahead 6-3 in the third before Pelletier completed his hat trick with 1:35 to play. The Legends were without seven experienced players, but newcomers Kurtis Banks and Hayden McLean made quick strides to fit in and made some really good plays. Chenielle Ottesen came close while getting prime opportunities in front of the net, while Brody Drydyk made his presence known with some solid physical play along with good heads-up lacrosse.

Sports Vipers...

CALENDAR

The Express struggled to maintain their composure for the remainder of the second period and Pieper said the team was able to regroup during the second intermission. “We just talked about simplifying things and getting back to what made us successful,” he said. “I think in doing that, it helped everybody relax a little bit.” Persley scored back-to-back goals, eight-minutes apart in the second half of the second period. On the first one, Persley cut back to the middle of the ice and roofed it glove side over Gordie Defiel. Persley’s second goal was of the Ryan Smyth variety. He bared down in front of the net and banged it in. Sparrow assisted on both goals, giving him and Persley three points each. The Vipers couldn’t close a door this series. They had the lead in the third period each game. Tuesday night’s third-period margin was short lived as Bo Pieper tied it 1:43 into the third, from Joey Santucci. The Vipers headed to the powerplay with 6:26 to play (Marc Biega off for hooking). The same league-worst powerplay that saved the day in Game 7 last series in Penticton looked to work its second miracle. On Tuesday, the Viper gods of Connor and Kellen Jones, Lanny Gare and Lennie Rampone, however, couldn’t help out their alumni mates. D-man Riley Guenther, just returning from injured reserve, lost the puck on his own blueline, on the power play, giving Adam Rockwood a chance to take the lead on a breakaway. Rockwood, the Game 2 hero, punched his team’s ticket to Dauphin with four minutes and change left. Sparrow appeared to tie it with seconds to play, but the goal was waived off due to a hand pass. n Viper grad Cole Ikkala and the Union College Dutchmen won its first NCAA hockey title Saturday night, scoring three times in a 1:54 span in the first period in a 7-4 victory over Minnesota on Saturday night in Ikkala’s home town of Philadelphia. Ikkala, 23, supplied seven goals and 19 points in four years. Union, a tiny New York State school of 2,200 students, won its final 12 games and went 16-0-1 in its last 17. Daniel Ciampini scored three goals in the Dutchmen’s 5-4 victory over Boston College Eagles in the semifinals Thursday night. Mat Bodie (Powell River Kings) was the Union captain. Wrote Ikkala, on Facebook: “I couldn’t have scripted a better ending to my hockey career. Going out on top. Thanks to all the friends, family, and that jungle of fan section that made it to the game. It’s been the best four years of my life playing here.” n Dallas Calvin, a Viper affiliate who could be used in the RBC, supplied 2+2 as the Beaver Valley Nite Hawks stopped the Aldergrove Kodiaks 5-2 in the Cyclone Taylor Cup (provincial Junior B) final Sunday before 730 fans in Nelson. Beaver Valley opened the Western Keystone Cup Thursday night in Abbotsford with games against the host Pilots and the Saskatoon Quakers. n Vernon’s Cole Sanford scored an empty-netter and set up two goals by linemate Trevor Cox as the host Medicine Hat Tigers grounded the Kootenay Ice 4-1 Wednesday night before 4,000 fans. The Tigers won the final three games of the WHL Eastern Conference series and will now meet Vernon’s Curtis Lazar and the Edmonton Oil Kings in the finals, starting tonight at Rexall Place.

Callander, who plays out of Rosters, defeated Huseon 15-4, 15-9 to take third place. “We received many positive comments from players about the club, organization, social events and prizes that were offered at the tournament,” said tourney director Doug Ross. “Several players approached me and told me that it was the best tournament that they had attended in years. This is a strong endorsement of the hospitality of the Rosters’ staff and the efforts of all the volunteers from the racquetball community.” Ross had to rally from a firstgame loss to defeat Al Cuttriss of Armstrong 2-1 (12-15, 15-8, 11-5) in the men’s 45A Singles final. Ross had to take an injury time out in the second game after an errant blast caught him in the eye, knocking his safety eye guards flying. “Shots like that rarely happen, but

In an all Vernon C final, Chris Megli grounded Karen McGarrity 2-1 (10-15, 15-4, 11-6).

Callander and Ross teamed up to ice Huseon and Bill Burdge of Abbotsford 2-1 (15-2, 14-16, 12-10) in a thriller for third.

Poulsen sparks Timber Morning Star Staff

The two-time defending Gibson Cup champion North Enderby Timber opened the 2014 season by lassoing the pesky Salmon Arm Outlaws 5-1 Wednesday night at Marshall Field #2. Brent Poulsen supplied two goals early in the first half to put the Timber ahead in the North Okanagan Soccer League opener for both teams. Bryndon Buckham converted on a left-footed howitzer, top shelf, from well outside the 18, capping the firsthalf NET attack. Ross MacDonald and Devin Janke added insurance goals in the second half.

In other play, Salmon Arm Courvas ambushed Monashee Surveying FC 5-0 at Marshall #1. Monashee came out with a full squad after combining with the now defunct Davidson Riot, and showed some promise as they greeted their new teammates. Courvas started with nine runners and gained their regular keeper just minutes into the match. Courvas took advantage of some early Monashee miscues and finished the night with a successful penalty kick. The Turn-Key Controls-National of Domination Eagle Homes game was postponed.

Horoscope

Try Solar Nails!

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL

Compare your current situation with your projected goals. Stop contemplating and start moving. Take command of your circumstances and do your best to make the changes necessary for success. Smaller tasks should be delegated to others so you can concentrate on the big picture. ARIES (March 21-April 19) I nteresting new connections will contribute to your personal prospects. Meeting someone in a learning environment or at a community event will turn out to be beneficial.

Previous Solution Suduko

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Health problems will prevail if you aren’t getting enough rest. Financial concerns or demanding family members will add to your frustration. Keep your temper under control. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Focus on your goals, but be careful not to spread yourself too thin. Timing and a steady pace will make a difference. Trying to take on too many responsibilities will be your undoing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Stay out of office debates and keep your opinions to yourself. You will get a lot more done if you are able to ignore all the disgruntled and bitter people around you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your energy level is low. Consider joining in some competitive games or sports to help boost your stamina. Show the people you love that they are a top priority in your life.

Crossword Puzzle

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Don’t allow anyone to take advantage of you. Speak up and set your own rules. If you are assertive and you stand your ground, you will get the desired results. Do your own thing. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Make an effort to cooperate with family members. Older relatives may be able to offer insight into your problems. Discuss family history with an elder to discover valuable information. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Be strict about the family budget. Frivolous expenses

will deplete your savings if you don’t keep track of them. Accurate financial records are essential. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You will be able to continue engaging in pleasant activities once you have resolved a minor family problem. Keep your emotions in check, or you may end up making matters worse. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don’t divulge secrets. Make sure your work relationships stay free of emotional turmoil. Be truthful and clear. A casual remark could be misinterpreted. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It’s great to get out and mingle, but before forming new friendships, make sure there isn’t a conflict of interest. A hastily made promise could result in an embarrassing situation. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Strong alliances with your co-workers will enable you to make great strides. Pool your ideas for maximum effect. You will provide useful suggestions for improving efficiency at work.

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.

Changes are looming for recycling. The Regional District of North Okanagan’s residential blue bag recycling program will end May 16 and MultiMaterial B.C., the new program administrator for printed paper and packaging recycling, will begin May 19. “MMBC has selected Emterra Environmental as the printed paper and packaging collection contractor,” said Nicole Kohnert, RDNO engineering services manager. “Effective May 19, PPP will be collected from single-family resi-

dences currently on the RDNO blue bag recycling program on the same days as collection happens now.” Complexes with more than four units currently on the RDNO program (not including mobile home complexes and strata complexes currently receiving individual unit curbside service) will not automatically receive service after May 16. Complexes wishing to continue to receive recycling service after May 16 must make arrangements through Emterra Environmental or another waste service provider. If property managers or residents are unsure what category their complex falls under, go to www. rdno.ca/recycle. Beginning the week of April 21, two blue boxes along with a recycling guide will be delivered. Recyclable materials left at the curbside in blue or clear bags following May 16 will not be collected by the RDNO or Emterra Environmental. MMBC has also selected Interior Freight and Bottle Depot and Venture Training Centre as registered PPP depots. Materials may be dropped off at these depots at no charge. For more information about MMBC’s new program go to www.multimaterialbc. ca/residents or call Emterra Environmental at 250-545-4245.

You don’t have to start on the road Many of the top road racers in the world didn’t start on the pavement. They started in the dirt. Why? Because it teaches you how to control a bike in less than ideal traction environments. Also, if you fall, it doesn’t hurt as much! You can certainly get your feet wet when it comes to learning clutch and brake control on a “softer” surface, too. Furthermore, you don’t need a learner’s permit if you are riding off road. When and if you want to transition to the street riding, you’ll need it for that. Check out Popkum Motor Park’s Lessons/Training (www.popkummotorpark.com) program for all ages, as well as the BC Off Road Motorcycle Association’s website (www.bcorma.ca) for upcoming MSF Dirt Bike Schools. Another perk to starting to build your bike confidence on the dirt, training programs aren’t as expensive. So, this is me, the little white angel on your shoulder whispering, “Go on, get on two wheels!” But remember, safety is paramount. Take the test, go to school and thank me later.

Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel competes on performance at a price by Zack Spencer

The introduction of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee showcased the direction of the new Fiat-Chrysler partnership. It went on to win more awards than any other SUV; in fact, I chose it as one of my favourite vehicles that year. Sales have been strong for not only Jeep but the entire Chrysler group. Freshness has been into each new vehicle and this latest 2014 EcoDiesel version is another example. For this model year, the Grand Cherokee gets a refreshed front and rear, plus interior tweaks and a thrifty diesel under the hood. Looks The most noticeable updates for 2014 include a thinner front grille, narrower front headlights with LED accents. This really makes the latest model pop; especially when you compare it to the last model. The EcoDiesel option is only available in

two trim levels, and this an expensive vehicle. The Overland is the cheapest diesel and it starts at roughly $58,000, $3000 more than a V6 model but the same price as the V8. The top of range Summit diesel starts at $62,000. In comparison, the base VW Touareg diesel starts at $55,000 but most of the other German mid-sized SUVs with a diesel, like the ML from Mercedes or the X5 from BMW also start in the low $60,000 range. Inside The Lowdown One of the biggest changes at Chrysler has been the atten- Power: 3.0L turbocharged diesel V6 with tion to detail now placed on interior design and refinement. 420 lb-ft. of torque The latest U-connect computer Fill-up: 9.8L/7.0L/100km (city/highway) interface is one of the best in Sticker price: $58,000the business; many high-end $62,000 makers could learn a thing or two from Chrysler. The large 8.4-inch screen is one of the biggest on the market and it is very quick to the touch, going from one function to the next is logical and responsive. Pairing a smartphone takes under 30 seconds and the best feature is the map screen, which enables the embedding of a picture in the same way as picture-in-picture TV does. The dash is covered in stitched leather and the cabin overall is simple and elegant. All EcoDiesel models come with leather seats and the back seats can even be heated. Drive The biggest change for 2014 is the introduction of an all-new 3.0-litre direct inject turbocharged V6 diesel engine along with an 8-speed automatic. With 420 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine just rockets away from a light and cruises effortlessly on the highway. There is a big premium to get this engine over a V6, or lower trim level V8 gasoline versions, but there are some compelling reasons to choose it. Fuel economy is number one. This heavy truck is rated at 9.8 L/100km in the city and only 7.0L on the highway. With aggressive driving and mostly city, I averaged 12L. I did notice on highway runs that the fuel economy improved radically and quickly. The towing capacity of the EcoDiesel is the same as the 5.7-litre Hemi V8 at 7200 lbs, but this truck gets substantially better fuel economy. For those that drive a lot without a trailer, the improvement in fuel economy is something to factor in. If you don’t drive a lot each year, the diesel option might not be worth the added cost. Verdict Chrysler considers the Jeep Grand Cherokee a premium offering but I would not put this on a par with the Mercedes ML, BMW X5, Audi Q5 or a very nicely equipped VW Touareg. It is a very nice truck with as much diesel power and efficiency as the competition but the German brands have been at the whole diesel thing a lot longer and are a known entity in the market. The Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel would be a very easy choice if it were about $50,000, not $58,000. If you drive a lot or tow, the diesel might be worth it, but as it stands now the already capable and luxurious gasoline versions are less expensive and come with all the regular Grand Cherokee goodness. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

A crossover for cross town by Ian Harwood

The Nissan Rogue compact crossover has been substantially updated since its appearance in 2008. The current design is very similar to the Murano but on a smaller scale. It has a sleek profile and features a rolled back front grille, large moulded LED headlights and the roof rails combined with the rear spoiler give it a very sporty look. There are three trim levels, S, SV, and SL. The base S comes standard with 17-inch steel wheels, EZ Flex seating system, cruise control, a tilt steering wheel, air-conditioning, full power accessories, keyless entry and a four-speaker audio system with a CD player and a USB connection for a cell phone. The SV model adds 17-inch aluminum wheels, power panoramic moonroof, heated front seats and a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support. The SL trim level starts with the SV model’s standard equipment and adds 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, dual zone automatic temperature control, auto dimming inside rearview mirror. The SL’s leather package includes heated front seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated side mirrors, a six-way power driver seat, plus a one touch up/down driver window. The SL premium package includes a seven-inch

color touch screen monitor for navigation, eight-speaker Bose audio systems with a six-CD/ MP3 changer, Sirius satellite radio ready, steering wheel mounted audio controls and ND Richbass sub-woofer. This package also give you a Power liftgate and an around view monitor. There are dual stage front driver and passenger airbags with seat belt sensors, roof mounted curtain side-impact airbags. The vehicle is also equipped with 4-wheel ABS and traction control systems, rollover sensor, anti theft with immobilizer key systems. Vehicle speed sensitive electric power steering adjusts automatically to become easier at lower speed and firms up at higher speed. This vehicle gets you around town but the four-cylinder engine just doesn’t have enough power on the highway. I found myself constantly pushing the gas pedal to the floor just to keep up with traffic. Perhaps it is the CVT transmission but I would like to see a V6 option for this vehicle. Interestingly, the windshield wipers are noteworthy but not for a good reason. It was raining one day during my test drive and as I stopped at a light I felt the car sway back and forth with the wipers, I quickly dismissed it for a big truck driving by but it was at every stop. I turned them on fully and the car rocked back and forth with every swipe. I have heard about soft suspension but really?

Confessions of a Curber I guess you could say I was addicted. Only my drug of choice wasn’t coke or meth. No - it was the thrill of getting away with it all. And the easy cash, of course. Throwing the camper into that last deal was a great marketing idea. And, like last time, I decided to branch out again. There’s so much more than just cars! This time I decided to go with a motorcycle. I purchased it off the internet – I guess you could call it a curber-to-curber transaction. Oh, of course I knew every trick in the book by now. The seller gave me my old story and said that he was the real owner. Did I care? Not a chance. It was a nice Harley. And, it was a steal. I knew I could flip it for more. Why? Because I was a better marketer. But I needed to do it fast. And, I had to make sure I had a buyer that was naive enough not to do a lien check through carproof.com, or the province (bcregistryservices. gov.bc.ca). As usual, I put up a generic, one-line Craigslist ad. With a price like mine, I had a buyer within an hour. I made sure the Harley looked its best. I polished it until it sparkled and filled it with gas. Hey, what’s a few bucks? Then I ran into a small problem. I found out that my seller was the real owner. Wow. But he sold me a vehicle that was about to be repossessed.

Fortunately, he was in such a hurry that he didn’t make me do the transfer – so it was still in his name. No big deal. Bridging* was my friend. I just used his name and hoped my buyer would never ask me for ID. And I was right. The buyer smelled a bargain and took the bait like fish. He thought I was the fool! No lien check, no ID check. Just cash. I was home free, again. And the best part? When the bailiff came for the motorcycle, he didn’t even know my name.

*Bridging – A trick that curbers use to keep their identity secret. Curbers will pay more for a vehicle from an unscrupulous wholesaler or broker if they are not required to immediately put the vehicle in their name. This keeps their name out of the vehicle registry and makes them impossible to locate when deals go bad. Breaking the law is never a concern for them.

Sub-compact with big pretensions by Bob McHugh

Mazda’s first foray into the Canadian sub-compact market segment was the 2011 Mazda2, an inexpensive little car that exceeds the quality expectations of most buyers. It was launched in Europe, Japan and Australia in 2007 and won 48 automotive awards, including “2008 World Car of the Year,” prior to its arrival in Canada. Mazda2 comes in just one body style, a four-door hatchback. Considering it’s diminutive proportions, that’s a lot of doors and “easy access” is big part of this small cars’ charm. The trim lines offered were GX, GS, and a top-priced Yozora edition, which was not sold in the US and limited to 500 units in Canada. The GS trim upgrade includes air conditioning, automatic headlamps, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, keyless entry, trip computer, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, cloth door trim, sport-style cloth seats with red piping, body-colour door handles and mirrors, chrome tailpipe finisher, side sill extensions, body-colour rear spoiler, exterior temperature gauge, fog lights, silver finish interior accents, and six speakers. The Yozora, which means “night sky” in Japanese, is actually a GX trim with air conditioning and a convenience package. Unique theme additions include its black exterior finish with decals, a spoiler, a chrome tailpipe, floor mats and 16-inch alloy wheels with performance tires. The Yozora package also came with a spare set of winter tires mounted on 15-inch steel wheels. Power is provided by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine linked to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission. The small gas engine’s 100-horspower output may

Only 500 units of the Mazda2 Yozora edition were offered in Canada. sound meek, however, it can move the light-weight Mazda2 surprisingly quick. It’s a silky, smooth free-revving little engine that also sounds a nice sporty rasp from its exhaust at high engine speeds. While there’s nothing wrong with the four-speed automatic transmission, there is a noticeable decrease in overall performance, plus an increase in fuel consumption. The manual can get 6.8 L/100 km in the city and 5.6 L/100 km on the highway. The automatic is rated at 7.5 L/100 km in the city and 6.0 L/100 km on the highway. Driver sight lines in the Mazda2 are particularly impressive. Its big side mirrors are more visible due to a lowered window belt line at the A-pillar and the low-cut design of the rear window also aids rear vision when backing-up. In addition, Mazda uses overlapping shingle-style rear seat head restraints to allow the driver an unobstructed view out the extra large rear window. The Mazda2 was unchanged for 2012, except for a minor improvement in fuel efficiency with the four-speed automatic transmission and the deletion of the Yozora edition. The 2013 edition came with a new USB audio input as standard equipment, but otherwise there were no significant changes. Not a big seller in the US so Con-

sumer Reports owner feedback is incomplete, however, the reliability ratings for Mazda2 have generally been better than average. Crash safety ratings are a mixed bag, although the overall rating is good, both side and rear impact results were less than perfect. As you might expect, being small and light is not an advantage when the other vehicle in an impact is big and heavy. Not just another fuel-efficient little commuter car, Mazda2 is a cleverly crafted automobile with a unique body design infused with Mazda’s “fun to drive” engineering philosophy. Price Check 2011 - 2013 Mazda2 (April 2014) Year Edition Expect to Pay 2011 GS auto $9,000-$12,000 2012 GS auto $11,000-$14,000 2013 GS auto $13,500-$16,500 Prices vary depending on a used vehicle’s condition, mileage, usage and history.

Bigger fines for distracted drivers: a distraction by Keith Morgan

People that talk and text on their hand-held smartphones while driving are not nearly as smart as their technology of choice. There you go; I have made my position clear on the current red-hot driving topic of the day in the letters pages of every newspaper and on radio talk shows coast to coast. However, that does not mean I am offering my unqualified support for the countrywide torrent of getI have always even-tougher legislation, designed to pick the pockets advocated for of delinquent drivers. hands-free calling Currently in BC, the fine is and figured ‘driving $167 and last year police without due care here issued 51,000 tickets and attention’ was for distracted driving. Vica sufficiently good toria knows a vote winner when it sees one and it is catch-all charge. pondering a big fine hikes Keith Morgan and additional demerit points. The local action comes on the heels of Ontario introducing legislation last month that increases fines from the already high $300 to $1,000. Fanning the public outrage, BC Attorney General Suzanne Anton announced that distracted driving is killing more British Columbians than impaired driving. Forgive my cynicism, but I really question the sudden rush of statistics showing how heinous and deadly a crime this is. I have always advocated for hands-free calling while driving and figured “driving without due care and attention” was a sufficiently good catch-all charge for those causing a collision during hands-on operation of a cell phone. The fine is $368. When I began writing on this topic about five years or so ago, there were no such statistics available. It was all anecdotal because, let’s face it, it’s an offence very visible to other drivers. It’s always seemed to me that drivers who talk and text are reckless risk-takers, who run red lights, follow too closely and make dangerous lane changes even without a phone in their hand. My point being that when they crash while performing one of the preceding illicit manoeuvres with phone in hand it’s a little too convenient to blame it all on operation of the device. Much of the current public debate was spurred by the revelation that a serial offender in Vancouver racked up 26 tickets and fines of $4,300 for distracted driving since 2010. He may be the pin-up boy for those seeking tougher penalties but interestingly, it appears he never once caused an accident during the time he was caught in cellular action! Now the law is in force, I’ve no problem in accepting it but let’s not kid ourselves into thinking this will stop idiots such as this overly chatty man continuing to take risks on the road that threaten us all. The fines are already high enough to deter regular drivers who are tempted to err occasionally. That said; I do worry

‘‘

Pic of the week

about how zealously this law is enforced. I frequently hear of tickets issued to drivers who mere glance at their device while at a red light or move it to a new resting place around the dash. I fear the debate about the fines is a distraction in itself from getting to the heart of dangerous driving. Therefore, I am pleased to hear Anton is also considering public education campaigns on distracted driving, similar to previous initiatives targeting seatbelt use and drinking and driving. That is smarter. Research shows that many distractions contribute to road carnage. Be careful what you wish for because there are other technological distractions in our vehicles that could invite bans of which you may not enthusiastically support. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

Trio strings out association’s 60th year

MG3 gets a ‘rush’ playing everything from Radiohead to Morricone to a certain Canadian prog-rock band Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

There are certain guitar concerts that stick out in the collective consciousness of those lucky enough to have witnessed them. Friday Night in San Francisco, captured in a live 1981 album by string wizards Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin and the recently deceased Paco de Lucía, is one of them. Last year, Vernon witnessed the same kind of magic when the Montréal Guitar Trio (MG3) performed for the North Okanagan Community Concert Association. With percussive taps, rapid lightning finger picking, up-the -neck chord progressions, and even whistling along to Ennio Morricone’s A Fistful of Dollars, MG3 showed audiences what a guitar can do when it’s in the right hands – make that three sets of hands. So when the NOCCA polled its members on what musicians they would like to see in Vernon for the association’s 60th season, a resounding amount of people said they’d like to see the Montréal Guitar Trio return. Their wish is coming true when MG3 returns to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre April 25. Trio member Marc Morin (the one with the hair; his compatriots Sébastien Dufour and Glenn

Lévesque have less in that department) promises the group will play a few of those favourites from last year, including more Morricone, and George Harrison’s While My Guitar Gentry Weeps, but there are some new surprises in the mix, which appear on MG3’s latest album Der Prinz. “When we think of the last 15 years since we have been doing this, we are most proud for putting a twist on modern music,” said Morin, a multi-instrumentalist who on occasion brings out his accordion on stage. “Although we admire those who donate to jazz, classical and rock, we can’t imagine a career playing just one style of music. It’s just not us.” Der Prinz is proof of that. The trio’s sixth studio album features a number of original songs penned by Dufour and Lévesque, with arrangements by Morin, and also pays acoustic ode to a diverse range of artists, from Rush (Tom Sawyer) to Radiohead (Weird Fishes) to an arrangement of French-Canadian singer and cellist Jorane Pelletier (Mr. Piment). “The covers are tributes to the styles, music and groups that have influenced us, such as Rush and Radiohead. Ten years ago, we wouldn’t have gone there,” said Morin. “We like to change things up on every album. It’s why we are still passionate after 16 years, and we always have a different way of recording. “The last album we did (Cambria), all the parts were recorded separately like pop and rock music and it was recorded in a church by the woods. For this album we went to downtown Montréal with an engineer and added more layers.” The half-way song on Der Prinz

The Montréal Guitar Trio, Sébastien Dufour, left, Glenn Lévesque and Marc Morin, returns to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre April 25 to help the North Okanagan Community Concert Association celebrate its 60th anniversary. (German for the prince) also holds special significance. The quiet, percussive song, entitled Le renard (the fox), was written by Nick Naffin, whom the album is named after. “He was an old friend, who we met at the beginning of our career 16 years ago. He was a German-born guitarist who lived in Toronto and passed away last year,” said Morin. “He was always eclectic, and we thought of him as the fox in The Little Prince. He wrote a song around the character of the fox, which we did a version of the song as an elegy to him and dedicated the album to him. That’s why there is a fox wearing a crown on the album cover.”

The album also features a piece by a composer whom MG3 always goes back to, in this case the love theme from the film Cinema Paradiso. “Ennio Morricone is our mentor. In 16 years, we have never performed once without playing his music,” said Morin, adding the North Okanagan community concert will definitely feature a Morricone piece. “We’re proud of that man, and we hope to meet him one day.” That day could be soon as MG3 is also touring the U.S. (where Morricone is currently touring) with their oft. collaborator/touring partners, the California Guitar Trio.

“We started paying together over five years ago. We think it’s good and we have been impressed with the reaction of the audience... They seem to want more,” said Morin. “Having seven on tour, with the sound engineer, is a great way to share the experience. We also influence each other a lot. Having a sextet keeps you alive, you don’t get bored. And if it ain’t broke, why fix it.” The Montréal Guitar Trio performs the last concert of the NOCCA’s 60th anniversary season at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Friday, April 25 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35/adult and $17.50/ student at the Ticket Seller, 250549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

It’s a sound rarely heard - a clean strum that defines the song.  Daltrey, no stranger to iconic heavy players, basks in the role of bluesy voiced foil in this happy hearted salute to a rocker’s career (and life).

Rio 2

fter falling in love and starting a family in the first film, Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway), macaw parrots currently living in Rio, decide to go to the Amazon when their human friends, Linda and Tulio, discover an entire flock of macaws living there. A city bird by nature, Blu has trouble adapting to living off the land, relying on his GPS system, missing his homemade pancakes and learning to eat bugs, but he can understand the value of teaching his children to live a natural bird’s life. However, Blu will have even bigger problems dealing with his newly found father in law Eduardo (Andy Garcia)

This music extravaganza with NEW FEATURES will entertain and delight you from start to finish!

Reel Reviews

Taylor and Howe

and the suave lover-bird Roberto (Bruno Mars). Then there’s the evil duo of the Cockatoo who can’t fly, Nigel (Jemaine Clement), and his infatuated poisonous frog friend Gabi (Kristen Chenoweth), who wish only to poop on their party. Ultimately, all these relationship issues fall by the wayside when loggers threaten to destroy the entire macaw habitat, then birds of a feather must flock together. We say, “Let this one migrate to DVD.” TAYLOR: I can’t say that this film is any better or worse than the first installment, luckily I didn’t see it. I thought this film was perpetually dull. Sure it’s bright and colourful, but in

20th Century Fox

Blu (left), a city bird, prefers to use his tiny GPS for navigation, while Jewel uses her bird sense in Rio 2. terms of character, story and pure fun, this film fails to impress. HOWE: Having a young child, I have been forced to view the original Rio, numerous times. The first one was a bit of a novelty with its bright colours, samba music and a few funnies. This time out it felt old. I don’t recall laughing once, the songs (and there are a lot of them) seem to drone on and on. TAYLOR: I was entertained a bit by the relationship between the antagonist cockatoo Nigel and his sycophantic love interest Gabi. They provided the few

light moments, high points in a story awash in mediocrity. It’s not that there’s anything particularly bad in the film, it’s certainly suitable enough for very young kids, the problem is that the kids (and I) didn’t seem to give two hoots. Consider this: The filmmakers decided to bring back Luiz, the slobbery dog from the original film, voiced by Tracey Morgan, presumably so that they could say “the whole gang is back.” Luiz appears for a few seconds at the beginning of the film and a few more seconds at the end. He does nearly nothing except makes

a quip when someone slips in his slobber trail, “Walk it off, buddy.” It seems to me like this is an exercise in making money, rather than entertaining kids. The two aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive, this film is just lazy. FENIN: I loved Nigel (aka Bob) and his frog, they wanted to poop on the party, very funny. But other than that it wasn’t very good. Oh look dad, I got the Luiz figure on the top of my cup. HOWE: Well I think that just sums up the movie. Fenin is more interested in his cup figurine than the movie itself. All I can say is I hope the filmmakers realize that this franchise isn’t as profitable as some of their others and won’t make me sit painfully through a third encounter with these fowl duds. – Taylor gives Rio 2 rotten eggs out of 5. — Howe gives it 2 Yorick skulls out of 5 – Fenin gives it 4 Nigels out of 5.

The Who’s Daltrey growls on Going Back Home Continued from A29

Ice on the Motorway and I Keep it to Myself have a punch that has roots in the primordial British rock and roll smash, Shakin’ All Over. The same propulsive groove dominates much of Going Back Home. The album is unflagging in its simplicity: bare bones production, tight ensemble playing, off-thefloor takes and the elusive capturing of good times and energy. They went for that and nailed it. The simplicity of approach allows the band and Daltrey to cast thought aside and bask in the moment, so the energy is focused. Daltrey’s epic Who’s Next

scream has evolved into a blunt-edged growl – the power’s still there but held way in check. It’s simple music and what steps it up is the stamp of personality the musicians impart and the solidity of power. There’s spirit and cajones. All Through the City is a primer in clean, straight forward rocking – it’s so propulsive that it floats. The only departure from the R&B /rock attack is a joyful cover of Dylan’s Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window, a surprising choice that sounds logical in hindsight. Johnson, Daltrey and company sound youthful and committed. These end-of-the-line celebrations embody a refreshing defiance and acceptance of fate at the same time. It’s a farewell party hosted by the angular guitar of Wilko Johnson: “I’m dying? Let’s rock!”

Club monitors hummingbirds BarBara Harris Special to The Morning Star

Are you interested in hummingbirds? Did you know that the smallest hummingbird, the bee hummingbird, is only five cm long? Did you also know that hummingbirds can not only stop in mid air and hover, but can actually fly backward, the only group of birds able to do so? And did you know that hummingbirds, which can fly at speeds in excess of 34 miles per hour, migrate by themselves, as far as 4,000 kilometres? If you find these facts interesting, and would like to help scientists learn more about hummingbirds, then read on. Gail Loughridge, the local head bander, moved here in 2002. She started banding in Vernon in 2004. “I was asked by Cam Finlay, a master bander from Victoria, to start banding here,” said Gail. “He really wanted an Interior location. He came and helped me band around Vernon; and in two days I banded over 75 birds.” Initially, we banded two species, Rufous and Calliope, but there was a new arrival, the Blackchinned hummingbird. Alarmingly, the Rufous population, the most common species in Western Canada, has been declining for more than 40 years. This pattern is disturbing to ornithologists, as extinction of bird species is occurring at an alarming rate. Fossil records show that, on average, just one species of birds was lost every century. Today, between one and 10 species of birds are thought to become extinct every year. Banding in the North Okanagan gathers information for two different scientific studies, the Hummingbird Project of BC (HPBC), and the Hummingbird Monitoring Network. The Monitoring Network was set up by Susan Wethington, an ornithologist in Arizona, because she was approached by the American Department of Agriculture. They were concerned about the loss of hummingbirds, who are extremely important pollinators for crops in North America. The HPBC is committed to the preservation of hummingbird species and their habitats throughout Western Canada. It also supplies information to the Canadian Wildlife Service, which keeps track of hummingbird locations, populations and species decline throughout Canada.

The Rufous hummingbird is the most common species in western Canada, but its population has been in decline for more than 40 years.

The Hummingbird Monitoring Network surveys hummingbird populations every two weeks, according to a set protocol. Both the Monitoring Network and the Hummingbird Project are working to determine population trends, and to

increase public knowledge about hummingbirds, so that people will promote and assist with habitat protection. Gail feels strongly about the need to collect data for both of these groups. “One never knows which bird will be the one that has previously been caught elsewhere in North America; or has been returning to the same spot for many years; or is wearing a band from Arizona,” she said. “Therefore our job, as citizen scientists, provides invaluable information to ornithologists throughout North America.” The hummingbird banding group, an offshoot of the North Okanagan Naturalists’ Club, is looking for more participants. Banding takes place on Saturday mornings, as well as on occasional week nights, from early May to the end of July. New members would help with catching the birds, as well as recording information about them, and would be asked to come and help twice a month. Please contact Gail at kalliope@shaw. ca or 250-545 7455 for more information.

Old affair still has power

ear Annie: Four years ago, I caught my husband lying and cheating in an emotional affair (he says there was never any sex). He and this same woman had been cheating for 10 years. She is married with grown children. She never told her husband what she did, so she has gotten away with it. We went to counseling, and it seems that my husband is on the straight and narrow. I love him dearly. We’ve

with this woman. He swears up and down that he has no contact with her. He claims he caught her lying and doesn’t even want her as a friend. But I know he has forgiven her for lying at least three times before. I honestly do not believe what he tells me, and it is affecting my peace of mind. I have considered moving just to get out of this small community where everyone knows everybody else. I want to punch her every time I run into her. Should I tell my husband how I feel? We

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.

have spoken about the past so many times that neither of us wants to bring it up again. He knows how much he hurt me. — Dazed and Confused Dear Dazed: Trust is difficult to regain, and it is made more complicated when your husband lives near the Other Woman. It is important that your husband be completely transparent in all of his dealings. Can you check his phone or email whenever you worry he is slipping back into old habits? If he hides things from

you, you have cause for concern. But otherwise, please try to put your concerns in perspective. And don’t feel squeamish about discussing your worries with your husband, as long as you don’t make accusations that put him on the defensive. If necessary, go back for counseling and work on this. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Boondoggled in Boise,” whose father refused to let the granddaughter see his coin collection and demanded it be sold through a third party. Why didn’t you suggest that the sons talk to the third party and buy the coins for fair market value? Dad doesn’t need to know his kids are the buyers. He gets to sell the coins the way he wants, and the brothers get to keep them in the family. — Know About Difficult Relatives

The

Bridge by Phillip Alder IF COURAGEOUS, GO FOR THE GRAND Most of my columns are clear-cut. This one is much less so. However, many years ago, my then partner, David Greenwood, and I discussed grand slams. These are major point winners ... and losers. We knew that most authorities recommend leading a trump against a grand. It is assumed that a pair will not bid seven unless its trump suit is solid. So, to avoid giving away a trick, a trump lead has to be safe. We decided that we could cash in on this. We agreed to bid seven if we knew the only missing key-card was the trump queen. Then, if the lead was a trump, it would pick up the queen for

us; if the lead was from a side suit, we would play the opening leader for the trump queen. We went three for three, and this was playing against internationals, not beginners. (We were using an early form of Roman Key-Card Blackwood called Byzantine Blackwood, when we could find out about the trump king and queen.) The declarer in today’s deal would have benefited from joining our discussion. South opened with a weak two-bid. North used Blackwood, then jumped to seven diamonds. (Yes, he might have bid seven notrump.) West led the heart jack. South knew that with nine trumps, the odds favored playing out the ace and king.

So, he won with his heart queen, played a trump to dummy’s king, and returned the diamond 10 toward his ace -- unlucky. You, though, will know to finesse through West. And if you believe in this theory, you will finesse on the first round, in case West has all four trumps!

is proud to introduce to you...

A get-away is great, but home is more than a place. Home is peace of mind. That’s what Hampton offers. We know peace of mind is valuable. The Hampton was designed with your comfort in mind.

Legislation introduced

he legislative session began last month with our government presenting our throne speech outlining our vision and plan for the upcoming session. We also presented our second consecutive balanced budget, fulfilling the commitment we made to the people of B.C. to maintain our AAA credit-rating, and keep our provincial finances in the black. So far, a number of pieces of legislation have been introduced to the Legislature, including the Off-Road Vehicle Act, streamlining the registration process for off-road Greg Kyllo vehicles while ensuring that our pristine backcountry is protected. Our government has also tabled the Water Sustainability Act, a long-term plan to protect our most valuable resource on earth. I had the privilege to stand in the house several times, one of which was delivering a response to balanced budget 2014, and two private members’ statements: one recognizing B.C. Restaurant Week in February, and the other congratulating the organizers of the 2014 Kamloops Tim Horton’s Brier. I also delivered a statement to the house on how our government is helping promote employment opportunities throughout B.C. However, when the Legislature isn’t sitting, my schedule is just as busy. Whether it’s meeting with stakeholders in my role as parliamentary secretary to the minister of jobs, tourism and skills training, responsible for the B.C. Jobs Plan, or of course working for you back home in the constituency. In the short time since being elected, I have found that connecting with residents, local officials, and community organizations that do great work here in the Shuswap is one of the most rewarding parts of being your MLA. In just one day of touring Enderby I had the opportunity to meet with so many great constituents. The visit included visiting city hall, touring North Enderby Timber to learn more about their manufacturing facility and the economic impact they have on our region, and meetings with several non-profit organizations to discuss how they benefit the community and how our government can help. I also had a quick trip to Armstrong to visit the wonderful folks at the Armstrong Museum to see their good work in the community and I dropped into the chamber.

MLA REPORT

Also during the constituency week I was invited by the Ministry of Transportation to get an update on the construction progress at the Hummingbird Creek Bridge site. It really does go without saying; it has been an immense pleasure serving as your MLA representing the Shuswap in the Legislature. I am looking forward to another busy month ahead as we continue to debate legislation and deliver good government to the people of B.C. As always, I welcome your feedback. Keeping connected to the issues and concerns of constituents is always my top priority as your MLA. Please feel free to contact our office at 250-8337414 or toll free, 1-877-771-7557, and we will gladly assist you. Greg Kyllo is MLA for the Shuswap constituency.

Black Press

The Canada Revenue Agency says the social insurance numbers of 900 taxpayers were stolen last week by someone using the Heartbleed encryption vulnerability before the taxation agency shut down public access to its online services. It happened over a six-hour period by someone exploiting the vulnerability in many supposedly secure websites that used an opensource encryption system. The CRA said it will send registered letters to affected taxpayers and will not be e-mailing them because it doesn’t want fraudsters to use phishing schemes to further exploit the privacy breach. “I want to express regret to Canadians for this service interruption,” CRA commissioner Andrew Treusch said. “I share the concern and dismay of those individuals whose privacy has

been impacted by this malicious act.” Other personal data and possibly businesses’

information may also have been lost. Taxpayers whose data was compromised

will get bolstered CRA account protection and free access to credit protection services.
