RCMP arrest arson suspect

PAWS FOR A CAUSE

Morning Star Staff

An arrest has been made in connection with the arson at a downtown Vernon pet store. Vernon RCMP and Vernon Fire Rescue Services were called to the rear of Aj’s Pets and Things at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 6. A small fire had been deliberately started at that location. Surveillance video released on Facebook by the pet store – viewed 70,000 times and shared more than 2,500 times – showed a man appearing to start the fire. “Our investigation has led to the arrest of a 33-yearold Vernon man,” said Vernon RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy, who said earlier this week that the man on the video was not related to a similar fire last year at Aj’s Pets and Things in which two men were arrested and convicted of arson. “The video was very helpful, as was assistance from the public.” Noseworthy also said that police believed the man in the video was not connected to a string of unsolved arsons in the Greater Vernon area in the summer of 2014. Crown counsel approved a charge of arson against Ryan Patrick Warnock, who was remanded in custody pending a scheduled court appearance in Vernon on Thursday.

It will be some time before the final cost of the Greater Vernon Athletics Park is known. Some Regional District of North Okanagan directors are asking for a financial accounting, but that may not be possible until early 2016. “They (construction crews) are still working on the project and it’s not done yet,” director Bob Fleming told his board colleagues Wednesday. “It will be a while before all of the bills are in.”

Voters agreed in 2013 to borrow $7.5 million for the project, but there have been some cost overruns since then. Final figures may be partially delayed as some warranty work and construction deficiencies are being

pursued by the regional district. The facility next to Okanagan College is now being used by the public, but the ribbon-cutting takes place Saturday, Sept. 26. “It’s an all-day event,” said Tannis Nelson, community development coordinator. Festivities will run from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., with the official ceremony at noon. “There will be a bunch of activities from sports organizations and some organizations will have registration information on site,” said Nelson.

Vernon’s mayor is alleged to have not followed all of Canada Revenue Agency’s rules. Akbal Mund has been charged with two counts of failure to comply with the Income Tax Act. “The charges are that I haven’t filed the proper paperwork,” he said. “It’s not that I’m evading taxes. I paid my taxes.” The allegations are related to 2012 and 2013, and do not involve Mund’s personal taxes but a company that he used to pay himself a salary when he was Akbal Mund a partner with Wendy’s. “I have an accountant and lawyer working on it,” said Mund. “I have no problem dealing with it. I want to deal with it.” Mund’s lawyer appeared on his behalf in Vernon court Thursday. The case has been put over until Nov. 19.

Candidates share democratic concerns ROGER KNOX

CANADA VOTES!

Morning Star Staff

The question came from a teenager, one of the youngest members in the crowd of close to 100 at a North Okanagan-Shuswap riding all-candidate’s forum Wednesday night at Lumby’s White Valley Community Centre: Do you have a problem with democracy today, and, if so, what would you as an individual do to fix it? “I’m really concerned about the direction of our democracy,” said Liberal candidate Cindy Derkaz. “The Liberals are in favour of electoral reform and are committed, within 18 months of being elected as government, of bringing in legislation to make this election the last first-past-the-post election.” NDP candidate Jacqui Gingras questioned the Conservative party’s Fair Elections Act as being fair. “It actually makes it less fair to participate in our democracy,” she said. “That act needs to go. With electoral reform, we need to make sure we have a voting system that people see their votes count and contribute to the outcome.” Chris George of the Green Party said proportional representation has been part of his party’s platform since he became a member. “The Greens have led the conversation on this topic and it’s now of national importance,” said George. “We would do specific things to enhance our democracy, like cutting the Prime Minister Office’s budget by 50 per cent. That would force the prime minister to be accountable and report to parliament when he needs money for programs or staffing his office.” Said Mel Arnold, Conservative candidate: “Democracy is not as threatening as a lot of people like to promote. The first-pastthe-post system was provided as a choice to B.C. residents. The majority do not want it... Our MPs are able to vote. We have the least whipped votes of any ruling party. (Former MP) Colin Mayes said he was able to vote against party lines eight times in his career. Other parties, no. They have to vote with the party lines.” Along that line, one member of the audi-

Green Party candidate Chris George (left) finishes answering a question from the floor just as timer Dwayne Hackett looms to inform him time is up during an all-candidates forum Wednesday night in Lumby. ence asked the candidates if they thought they’d be able to express their own opinions within their party and truly represent their riding. “I intend to be a powerful voice, your voice in Ottawa,” said Gingras. “I may not agree with my party on everything but I’m very tenacious when it comes to matters of principle and representing others. I’m going to Ottawa to help make a party, not be absorbed by that party. I feel very strongly about that.” George said the Green Party believes in

‘me.’ “If it comes down to a budget bill or a matter of confidence, I get to use my best judgment and that means the party has confidence in me that I’m going to make the right decision,” he said. “If I have to vote against the party on a confidence motion or budget motion, as long as I feel I can justify that decision based on doing what is right for constituents in my riding, my party isn’t going to have a problem with it.”

Derkaz, a retired lawyer, said she could “never be a trained seal jumping up and clapping for things I did not believe in.” “I believe I will have a say in this riding,” she said. “I truly believe Justin Trudeau’s leadership style is inclusive and collaborative. I’ve spent the last 40 years trying to determine if someone is being square with me or not. As your MP, I’ll have lots of chances to represent you to the best of my ability in caucus without being muzzled.” Arnold said his experience in working with and on provincial and national organizations would help him be a loud voice in caucus. “I’ve learned how to negotiate for what’s important for me and my constituents in B.C.,” he said. “Those types of things are what you learn through experience and I’ll carry that experience forward to the caucus chambers. Candidates faced a total of 13 questions on topics such as firearms, working for people with disabilities, water, climate change and Bill C-51 in the two-hour forum. Moderator Joe Deuling did an excellent job of handling hecklers, making sure the candidates were given a chance to answer each question.

News Shuswap ban focus of report RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Regional District of North Okanagan officials say there’s a need to set the record straight about a proposed Shuswap River boat ban. On Wednesday, the board instructed staff to prepare a summary of events leading up to the establishment of the Shuswap River watershed sustainability plan and consideration of boating regulations. “There are questions as to how we got to the regulations,” said director Juliette Cunningham. “We are getting e-mails all of the time.” There has been considerable public debate about possibly prohibiting motorized vessels from south Mabel Lake upstream to Shuswap Falls and from Trinity Valley Road upstream to the eastHalvorson ern end of Skookumchuck Rapids Park. It’s also suggested that there be a vessel engine size limit of 10 horsepower from Mara Lake upstream to Trinity Valley Road. RDNO’s intent is to improve recreational safety, reduce bank erosion, reduce disturbance to salmon spawning grounds and minimize conflicts between river users. However, some residents have accused the regional district of unfairly moving ahead with a process that will restrict access to the river, and particularly for those who own waterfront. Director Bob Fleming supports the report outlining RDNO’s actions. “People say there’s a lack of consultation but it will show the consultation,” he said. Herman Halvorson, who is director for much of the Shuswap River area, requested that a summary report be developed. “A lot of people are unfamiliar with the process,” he said, adding that RDNO first looked at boating regulations in 1992. “We want everyone to know why it started.” If RDNO continues to proceed with the proposed regulations, the federal government would make the final decision on whether they are implemented.

Eight-year-old Ridley Kane delivers bags and flyers to homes around town Wednesday in preparation for the B.C. Thanksgiving Food Drive Saturday. Residents are asked to fill a bag, or more, with non-perishables for the Vernon food bank which is in desperate need.

4144 Spallumcheen Way Spallumcheen, BC V0E 1B6

Support for Vernon’s food bank is growing. On Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m., Craftsman Collision, Save-OnFoods and PriceSmart Foods are teaming up with the Salvation Army to host a food drive. Craftsman Collision is pledging to match every item donated at the Save-On-Foods in Village Green Centre, up to $3,000. “We are confident this will add a significant incentive to motivate our community and encourage people to come out and make a dent in hunger this fall in Vernon,” said Capt. JeanCurtis Plante, with the Salvation Army. Demand has been growing at the local food bank, and Craftsman Collision is hoping for a good response Saturday. “This really wouldn’t be pos-

sible if it weren’t for the great support the community shows and for the dedication and team spirit that our employees have,” said Stacey Cook, marketing manager. Upon entering Save-OnFoods, customers will receive a shopping list of ideal non-perishable food items to shop for and donate. Volunteers with the B.C. Thanksgiving Food Drive will also be going door-to-door Saturday picking up bags of nonperishables. Bags and flyers were dropped off at homes this week and volunteers will return Saturday between 9 and 11 a.m. to pick up filled bags. If the bags have not been picked up by 12:30 p.m., a local call-in number has been set up: 250-550-0182.

International walk laces up Morning Star Staff

The City of Vernon is inviting Vernon schools to participate in the upcoming International Walk. The event raises awareness about the benefits of active travel to school. “Last year’s activities included walking school buses led by Vernon’s mayor and council members to encourage participation and awareness,” sad Tanya Laing Gahr, communications co-ordinator. So far, Ellison and Alexis Park schools have signed up for 2015 events. The general themes that are promoted during iWalk include increasing daily physical activity, improving safety, enhancing the environment, bringing the community together, reducing levels of crime, promoting social interaction and reducing traffic congestion, pollution and speed near schools. “Twenty-five years ago, 80 per cent of children from Grades 3 to 12 walked or biked to school without an adult,” said Laing Gahr. “Now, only 20 per cent of Canadian children walk or bike to school.” For more information on how to organize an iWalk event at your school, contact wmajewski@ vernon.ca or visit ww.vernon.ca/vernonmoves.

providing comment on the proposed ice sheet at this stage because no variance permits have been sought. “At such time as a variance was applied for, the application would be forwarded to the APC,” said Kim Flick, planning and building sdirector. And while a feasibility study for a second ice sheet has been done, staff told council that no firm design details have been worked out.

“At this time, there are no specific plans. There is no plan to comment on,” said Will Pearce, chief administrative officer. In the end, only Spiers and Anderson opposed the motion to deny the APC’s request to review expansion plans (Coun. Catherine Lord was absent and Coun. Brian Quiring declared a conflict because his architecture firm did the feasibility study).

Don’t Let Your Windows Leave You In A Fog Dirty Foggy Windows

Many homes built between the late 70s and the early 90s experience sealed unit failure. Unit failure leads to condensation forming between the two layers of glass causing them to steam and fog up.

Is There a Solution?

Yes, the only real solution is to replace the sealed unit. You only need to replace the glass not the frame which means it can be done easily with a minimum amount of disruption.

Family makes a home

M

y sister texted me a photograph this week that has brought up a host of emotions for me. It was a photograph of the for sale sign that has been placed in front of our family home. I haven’t lived there in many years, but for my entire adulthood it was been the place to which I return. For 50 years, our family has called the white house with the black doors home. And soon it won’t be. When my parents bought the house, it was the place they were going to raise their three young children. I remember the day we moved in; while Katherine Mortimer my parents unpacked, I wandered up the street and met another little girl my age. Susie introduced herself, chatting away as she picked dandelions from neighbours’ lawns. I remember asking her if she was allowed to pick other people’s “flowers.” The dead-end street had a forested area at the top and kids in almost every house. We rode our bikes and scooters at the open area at the top of the street and played for hours in those woods — coming home only when we were called for lunch or dinner, or because it was getting dark. Our house had been built in the ‘40s by a builder who created interesting nooks and crannies and innovations such as built-in drawers and storage areas under the eaves, with tiny little doors, and where we used to create forts and hiding places. In the den, there was what we still refer to as the record closet: shelves built specifically to store records, and a builtin turntable where records could be stacked. As well, he had installed speakers all over the house: the dining room, the living room and the rec room in the basement. The house was renovated in the ‘80s, but it just made it better while still maintaining many

of the original features. It was the place where I had a very happy childhood, and was blessed with a close, loving family. It’s the place my brother was married and where my husband and I were married many year later, in the front garden in front of a Japanese maple strung with fairy lights. It’s where my niece and nephew — now both adults — took some of their first steps. It’s where my daughter happily played under the kitchen table. And in the seven years since my mom passed away, it’s been the place that I return to and feel comfort. I feel her presence in every room. It is where my grief over losing her is somehow lessened because she is there. Every picture on the wall, the cookbooks in the kitchen — many with her chicken scratch scrawl on certain recipes, declaring them “wonderful” or “yechh.” And now the for sale sign is in front of the house and it will be sold. But my siblings and I are so grateful that our dad is the one making the decision to move. So many seniors have the decision made for them. Our dad is still working full-time at the age of 81 and has finally made the decision to not only sell the house but to retire. We are hoping he has many years in which to enjoy not making that morning commute he has done every weekday since 1961. I’m returning home next month to help pack up 50 years worth of stuff, and to bring back what won’t be needed in the new place. This may be my last time home because most old houses in the neighbourhood are bought for the land and torn down, ready for a brand-new house. It’s going to be emotional — saying goodbye to the house is also saying goodbye to another part of my childhood. But at the end of the day, it’s just bricks and mortar (or in this case, plaster and lathe). There is a line from a poem by Emily Dickinson that says, “Where thou art, that is home.” It is a comforting reminder that for me, home is wherever my family is.

Several local efforts are underway to ensure a basic need is met in our community. While most of us have never even seen the back of our cupboards, there are an increasing number of individuals and families whose food source is bare. When that happens, the food bank is there to help. But now even the food bank’s shelves are looking sparse. It’s a routine occurrence for the Salvation Army, which runs the food bank, as the need continues to grow. On average, 400 food hampers are given out in a month, but over the summer those numbers have risen substantially, reaching 450 at times. Which is why several local efforts are underway to feed that need. Donations are currently being accepted at Save-On-Foods through its annual food drive and items will continue to be collected Saturday. Volunteers with the B.C. Thanksgiving Food Drive will also be out Saturday collecting bags of food left on the doorsteps of homes. But to ensure these drives are successful in stocking the food bank shelves back up, a community-wide act of giving is needed. Those who have maybe skipped through aisles in previous years without picking up an extra item or two are asked to consider helping others this year. Whether it’s a can of beans, box of pasta, pack of toilet paper or even a cash donation, every little bit helps. The food bank relies on the generosity of the community to ensure that all residents have such basic needs as food met. Next time you open your cupboards and ponder over your choices, consider what it might be like to have no options at all, or worse yet, nothing to feed your family.

BLUE BOXES As a senior, I couldn't agree more with Pat Black's recent Personal Best column about recycling. It's a constant frustration. I only have one blue box, a smaller size, because I told Emterra the larger ones were too big for me to carry and Emterra would only give me one smaller one. When they delivered the smaller box, they took away the two larger boxes. So all of my paper, cardboard, and allowable plastic is mixed up in one box. Brilliant. The day they tell me it's not sorted properly will likely be the day I stop putting out the blue box. I use a couple of big bags to save all of the plastic and bottles that won't go in the blue box. Because I don't have a car, I have to periodically walk to the Venture Training recycling depot, dragging a bundle buggy with the saved recycling. That's fine in this sunny weather. Will I do it dragging the buggy through snow and ice in the winter? No, I will not. Like Pat, I was a dedicated recycler. Now? Not so much. Thanks,

Emterra and the B.C. government. You've ruined what was an excellent recycling system. I hope you're very proud. Jean Collier THANK YOU I wanted to thank you for running the article and editorial for us. We had a generous wave of support for the barbecue fundraising campaign and our board and staff appreciated the recognition of their work. The Morning Star is an excellent paper, with many thanks to your work with the community. Sue Rossi, executive director Canadian Mental Health Association, Vernon branch KEEP IT SIMPLE The only thing going roundabout at Stickle Road is the conversation regarding what needs to be done. I see many contradictions in most of the suggested fixes. How about we ask the simple question first. What is creating the problem? If your answer is speed, slow it down.

It’s quick , cheap and good. If it’s anything else, then the answers just become more extravagant. Roundabouts, merge lane extensions, no left turns, lights, signals and lots of expense for us and just create a huge make work for someone. It’s pretty easy to see that speed reduction solves the problem in the least amount of time, effort and money. The fears of traffic mayhem are specious at best. The roundabout causes confusion and requires a significant slowdown thereby negating the theory that speed reduction won’t solve the problem. I have used the small roundabouts in town and you must be very vigilant to sudden changes in traffic flow or inexplicable stoppages inside the roundabout, and that is all happening at 20 kilometres an hour. I shudder to think what would happen on our highway just outside of town if the same driving habits travel there and involve all that large truck traffic. The traffic light would be expensive but get the job done. The no left-turns ignores the traf-

fic patterns observed by the tenants of business and residences in the area. The proposed changes restricting drivers from 27th Street make no sense at all. This area is fertile ground for future development. Instituting a firm immutable traffic pattern without an easy out for change seems rash and may be unnecessary. Common sense dictates a calm and reasoned approach. Understand the problem first. Offer solutions. Agree on the most feasible one that meets the demand for a perceived change. Check your budget, the practicalities and then get it done. The most expensive decision does not make it the correct decision. Overthinking wastes time and money. The same problem exists on other cross roads in this area. The same solution, a speed reduction, would solve them all. It would save money and lives if they acted upon it in the least amount of time. Apply same to Birnie Road intersection. It’s just so hard to comprehend how so simple a solution appears

so hard for grasp by the ministry charged with managing our highways. It’s time for action. Glenna Miles

We need a water plan using water from Okanagan Lake. I hear rumours that we don't have a water license to take water from the lake. Demand one. The lake belongs to the people of B.C. Let's do it right or don't do it at all. The point I am trying to make is the only person who had the foresight to see what the area's top priority is was Gyula Kiss.

We should put a stop to all of the projects until the arena, arts centre, Duteau Creek and library are paid off. Oops, too late. Running RDNO is like running your household. They should only be allowed to mortgage a percentage of their income. If the citizens ran their houses like the local governments, we would all be bankrupt and in the poor house. Again, they do not have our problem. All they have to do is figure out how much to raise the taxes each year. I agree the projects are needed but let's get our projects in priority and what part of our tax income can be used for mortgages, and live with it. Finally, there should be new bylaws written to protect property owners. Trees growing 100 feet high are blocking out lake views of people who paid big dollars for lake and valley views. Residential areas are beginning to look like trailer parks — boat trailers, fifth-wheels, motor homes and unlicensed vehicles all parked on streets for weeks at a time. The problem should be addressed immediately. RDNO is a beautiful area. Let's keep it that way and stop letting a few ruin it for the majority of citizens in the area. B.J. Stahl

iving in the Regional District of North Okanagan for the past 20 years, my first observation was the No. 1 priority in the area was sewer and water. From 1995 to 2000, nothing was done but then all hell broke loose. First, we built an arena and then next we built a performing arts centre and a library (obsolete). Still no sewer or water. Finally, a make-shift water plant to the tune of $20 million — a complete waste of money. Next comes the master water plan for about $70 million. Luckily, it was voted down. Next was the track/football field. The word on the street is this is another white elephant. The recreation complex has to be upgraded but at least it is used by a lot of citizens. Hockey people want another ice surface. The question is why when school enrolment is down. Hockey is down all across Canada. Kids are all moving to soccer. The bottom line is hockey is subsidized and they all want to play prime time. Maybe they should be paying their full share if they want more ice. Today, the master water plan has reared its ugly head again. They want citizens to go on a master water board. Why? To justify their actions. What do these citizens know about water? First of all, fire some water experts. Do we want another Duteau Creek (say no more)?

“We want to make sure usability is improved.”

Morning Star Staff

With more residents surfing the Internet, the City of Vernon is trying to improve the experience. Council has adopted a new design for the city website and it should be completed by Dec. 22. “We want to do a better job of communicating with residents,” said Tanya Laing Gahr, communications co-ordinator. “We want to make sure the usability of the website is improved.” The revised site will be broken down into categories where a variety of information can be found. They include activities/events, business, homes and building, government services, parks and recreation and transportation.

— Tanya Laing Gahr The design option that has been approved provides significant text, but a second option was preferred by Coun. Brian Quiring because it’s more visual. “Option A looks like a government site and option B looks like a marketing/shopping site. It’s youthful,” he said, adding that the second design would be easier to navigate on mobile devices. Support for option B also came from Coun. Dalvir Nahal. “It’s user-friendly, warm and inviting. If there’s too much writing, you get discouraged,” she said of searching a site. However, the rest of council backed option A. “Option B reminded me of some of the early 2000s websites that we’re trying to be trendy,” said Coun. Scott Anderson, adding that familiar systems are critical for many seniors using websites. “There are a great number of people who don’t navigate a mobile device. Option A has a broader appeal.”

An arrest has been made after a Vernon store was robbed. On Tuesday, the RCMP were called to the Lakeview Market on 32nd Avenue after 10:30 p.m. “It was reported to police that a lone male had entered the store with a large knife. He attempted to access the cash register but was unable to open it,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy, with the local detachment. The suspect fled the scene but was located a short time later by police. Crown Counsel has approved a charge of robbery against Drew Edward Miller, 29, and he is remanded in custody until his next court appearance Sept. 23. No one was injured during the robbery.

Mussels focus of session RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Community Development Minister Peter Fassbender will get an earful about mussels. Juliette Cunningham, a Regional District of North Okanagan director, says the need to keep zebra and quagga mussels out of local lakes will be a priority during the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. “Water is so important,” she said of the scheduled meeting between Fassbender and the Okanagan Basin Water Board. Cunningham The mussels are indigenous to Europe and since arriving in North America, they have spread across the continent, clogging water intake pipes and boat motors.

High-flying support continues for individuals who are lost or facing a medical emergency. Wildcat Helicopters, of West Kelowna, will once again provide Vernon Search and Rescue with a dedicated rescue service from dawn to dusk seven days a week. “We are providing this service, aircraft, personnel, equipment and experience on a standby basis free of charge,” said Ian Wilson, Wildcat vicepresident. “Fees are only activated once the aircraft is deployed. This aircraft is outfitted with the latest rescue equipment as well as full paramedical support as required.” Wilson says his crews are trained far in excess of all requirements mandated by Transport Canada. “Wildcat has been providing winch and rescue services for over a decade both domestically and abroad, and we are very happy, as are our highly trained crews to provide this service to the public, in our own back yard,” he said.

Heading to Vancouver North Okanagan politicians are making their way to to the coast for an annual gathering of civic leaders. The Regional District of North Okanagan and all five municipalities will have representatives at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, which runs from Monday to Friday in Vancouver. “I hope everyone takes advantage of what goes on there,” said Rick Fairbairn, RDNO chairperson, of the networking with other municipal officials and discussing issues to communities across the province. “I am looking forward to meeting the (provincial) cabinet ministers on some of the questions and concerns we have.”

As Dianne Craig constantly reminds her daughter, find something you love to do and you never work a day in your life. Craig cherishes her role as president of Oakville, Ont.-based Ford Canada. She was in Vernon Tuesday to help Watkin Motors – Canada’s oldest Ford dealership – celebrate its 100th anniversary. “When I left Oakville yesterday morning to come out here to God’s country, I told my husband I’m going to have a great time for a couple of days,” said Craig, who drives a 2015 Lincoln MKX while her husband gets behind the wheel of her favourite Ford model, a 2015 Mustang. “This isn’t work for me. Being here to help celebrate this milestone is a really big deal.” Craig, who grew up in Buffalo, will have been with Ford for 29 years come October. She started with the company learning the business in a marketing, sales and service entry-level position in Memphis. Craig was named Ford Canada president four years ago and has maintained the company’s record as the market leader for the past five years. “I’ve had such a great career at Ford but being able to run the business in Canada has been the greatest privilege,” she said. “We have 425 store owners across Canada. The dedication, passion and loyalty of the Ford and Lincoln dealers in Canada is really special.” Calling the automotive industry healthy, Craig said what helps keep Ford at the top in terms of sales is its devotion to its brand, reputation and – most important – its clientele. “Customer service is the most important element of what we do because it’s all about serving our customers and giving back to the community,” said Craig. “Our vision for Ford Canada is to be the most trusted and admired automotive brand. If we accomplish that goal, we have market leadership

and we’ve proven that to be the case the last five years.” Craig achieved a couple of firsts Wednesday. It was her first visit to Vernon and her first 100th anniversary celebration. Anywhere. “We have some dealers approaching 100 and I’ve been all across North America, so this is a huge milestone,” she said. “One hundred years in any business is a really long time. One hundred years in the car business is really tough.” Founded in 1915 by Joe Watkin, the Vernon dealership has grown from a staff of three to 50 employees today, making it one of Vernon’s largest employers. It’s welcoming family atmosphere is one of the reasons that many employees have been a part of Watkin Motors for many years. It’s also a reason the dealership wins numerous Ford Canada President’s Awards for exceeding customer satisfaction. Watkin Motors won another President’s Award this year. “It signifies our team’s outstanding achievements in sales and customer satisfaction,” said Ross Blankley, one of Watkin’s three partners, along with family members Bruce and Scott Blankley. “We will continue to deliver superior customer service in the Okanagan area and provide customers with the true Ford experience.” The Blankleys greeted hundreds of well-wishers at Tuesday’s anniversary gala. Saturday, the dealership is hosting a special day, You can have a picture taken with a 1934 fire truck originally sold by Watkin Motors; Vernon Lions Club will serve burgers from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; a free car wash card will be given out with every test drive; and Kiss-FM Saturday Classics host Frank Martina will be on hand to announce the winner of a pair of diamond earrings for the best Watkin Motors story. The 10 finalists’ stories were on display at the anniversary gala.

Speedy breeds hit the track JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Races will once again go to the dogs as the Whippet Club of B.C. hosts fall trials in Lavington Sept. 26 and 27. Speedy breeds, such as greyhounds, pharaoh and basenji, will take to the track to test their agility. And there will also be a chance for some other breeds to test their own speed during the ‘every dog race’ Saturday. Those interested in entering their dogs are asked to come by 2 p.m. to register for the 3 p.m. race. “We have 10 spots open for this,” said Verena von Eichborn, local organizer. “All dogs will get two runs and it costs $10.” Those interested in checking out the action are invited out to the races, which begin around 10 a.m. off Langford Road (follow

Lake Country volunteer firefighter Peter Whitfield says there are a lot of good memories in the old Winfield fire hall. And he should know. In the late 1970s, Whitfield’s father was among the volunteer firefighters who built the last major addition on the aging building, adding to the original two-bay fire hall, built in 1959. “There’s a lot of history in this building,” said Whitfield, a member of the Lake Country Fire Department for 15 years. “I’ve been here for so long and I know so many firefighters who have retired and helped

location but some of it has to be left outside due to space. Last winter, the district’s water tender had to be kept outside but it suffered some weather damage. That promped the LCFD to purchase a large tent to park the tender under to shield it from the winter elements. It’s these kind of Band-Aid solutions that have kept the Winfield hall going over the years. But as the call volume rises, as there is more residential growth and more tourists on area roads and lakes, it’s becoming more and more evident the LCFD needs a new building. “A fire hall in the Winfield area is dire at this point,” said fire chief Steve Windsor. “We’re at a point where we will be bringing forward a recommendation on how to move the fire hall project ahead in the 2016 budget to get some design work to move it ahead.” In 2008, Lake Country held a referendum asking residents to approve the borrowing of $4 million for a new fire hall. Held in conjunction with a municipal election, the fire hall was turned down by a vote of 675 to 625. During the 2008, referendum the price of the land was included in the $4 million price tag. The district now owns a four-acre parcel of land just blocks from the current fire hall. A recent review of the potential cost of a new building pegged the cost at $4 million, according to Lake Country chief administrative officer Alberto DeFeo. DeFeo also said the municipality will need to hold another referendum or an alternate approval process to get electors’ assent to borrow the money for a new fire hall.

“Extremely Helpful”

Morning Star Staff

Shuswap and Okanagan anglers can now dust off their rods for river fishing. The provincial government has re-opened angling for streams and rivers due to lower water temperatures and increased flows. The decision reverses previous closures on the Similkameen, Kettle and West Kettle rivers and tributaries (July 15), middle Shuswap River (July 30) and Okanagan River main-stem (Aug. 6). All of these closures were put in place to protect fish stocks due to low flows and high water temperatures. Salmon fishing remains closed in the region. “Water levels in many systems in the Thompson and Shuswap are extremely low and temperatures in many cases are reaching lethal limits for migrating salmon,” reads the Fisheries and Oceans Canada notice.

Sanford in Oilers main camp Vernon product plays on first line with McDavid KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Cole Sanford has played alongside and had small talk with Connor McDavid. Tonight, he meets Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and the rest of the Edmonton Oilers. Sanford, one of eight unsigned forwards on a tryout with the Oiler prospects, scored once and drew one assist as the Edmonton Rookies stopped the University of Alberta Golden Bears 6-3 before 14,434 fans Wednesday night at Rexall Place. He found out moments after the 25th annual exhibition that he was not being sent back to the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL, where he rang up 50 goals and 95 points last season. “Guys were going for meetings (after the game) and I asked someone what was going on and they said if you didn’t get called to a meeting, you were staying with the team,” said Sanford, 20. “I was pretty happy to hear that.” The NHL Oilers will gather for a meeting at 5 p.m. at the swanky Westin Hotel, where Sanford has been staying since the Canucks Young Stars Tournament in Penticton ended Monday. “Maybe tomorrow when I’m on the ice with some of the veterans will be the moment when it KRISTI PATTON/BLACK PRESS SPORTS sinks in,” said Sanford, enjoying a day off Thursday.

Silverbacks 2-0 Morning Star Staff

Carson Bolduc bagged two goals as the Salmon Arm Silverbacks outlasted the Merritt Centennials 7-5 in B.C. Hockey League play Tuesday night before 670 fans at the Nicola Valley Arena. Nick Jermain put the Cents in front at 4:52 with the Silverbacks equalizing five minutes later when Ross Heidt converted shorthanded. Taro Hirose, who earned first star with 1+3, drew the assist. The Cents moved ahead at 12:08 on Zak Bowles’ snipe with Salmon Arm (2-0) levelling the score 17 seconds later on a Nick Hutchison snipe. Merritt (1-2) then potted goals 10 seconds apart with Bowles (on the powerplay) and Gavin Gould clicking. Hirose responded for the Silverbacks three minutes later on a powerplay, while Gould completed a busy first 20 minutes with 1:58 left in the period. Bolduc supplied the only offence in the second period to tie things. Heidt drew assists on both goals as Salmon Arm outshot the Cents 19-9. Heidt gave the Silverbacks their first lead of the game at 7:31 of the final period with Hirose assisting. Marcus Mitchell potted his first BCHL goal for insurance with 2:12 left. Elsewhere Tuesday, the West Kelowna Warriors upended the Trail Smoke Eaters 8-3 in front of 766 fans at Royal LePage Place.

Conway clutch for Vees Black Press Sports/Morning Star Staff

Scott Conway doesn’t think the Penticton Vees could have played any better against the Vernon Vipers in their homeopener Wednesday night at the South Okanagan Events Centre. The Vees forward earned first-star honours on banner raising night as he scored twice, his second helping Penticton dispatch the Vipers 3-2 in front of 2,318 fans. “We have been working hard all week. It paid off tonight,” said Conway, who led all freshmen with the Nittany Lions last NCAA season before being released for violating Penn State team rules. Mitch Brooks scored the other Vees goal, while captain Tyson Jost collected a pair of assists and was named the second star. Anthony Brodeur turned aside 23 shots in his first win as a Vee. Peter Tufto, named third star, and Steven Jandric, scored for the Vipers as they were handed their second loss in three games. Conway opened the scoring 42 seconds into the first after he squeezed a low shot past Vipers starter Andrew Shortridge at the near post. Shortridge finished with 25 saves. “It was my best game for sure. I can’t thank my linemates enough,” added Conway. “They all worked hard out there. We had a lot of zone time. It’s hard to beat us when we’re like that.” Vernon matched Conway’s opening goal seven minutes later when Tufto shoveled a rolling puck across the goal-line. Jandric’s shot was stopped by Brodeur, but it squirted underneath his arm and Tufto tapped it in at 7:45. The Vees’ pressure paid off later in the opening frame. Brooks put the Vees back out ahead on a solo effort down the left wing. Jason Lavalée found a streaking Brooks and took the pass in stride before flipping it over Shortridge at 11:12. Easton Brodzinski had a great chance at the end of the period to put the Vees up by two. He found himself on a breakaway but was stuffed by the long leg of Shortridge. Conway’s second goal came early in the second when he cleaned up his own rebound. Shortridge stopped his first attempt from in tight but Conway found daylight at the post at 4:32. After killing off a Vees’ two-man advantage in the third period, the Vipers cut into the 3-1 lead with their own powerplay six minutes in. Jandric blasted a one-timer underneath the crossbar after a couple of quick passes out of the corner. Vernon

pressured in the final moments with the extra attacker and came close to tying it with a point shot that was redirected but smacked the crossbar and stayed out. “We knew that was going to be a big factor in the game if we’re up,” said Conway. “We just played some good defence at the end. We’re all a little bit nervous. That was our first one of the year. I think good teams win with pressure.” Colton McCarthy, the Vipers captain, said they came out slow in the opening period, saying it might have had to do with the defending BCHL champion Vees’ home-opening introductions. “We came out hard in the second and even harder in the third. We had a pretty solid third period and we will probably use that to build into the next game,” he said. McCarthy said the pressure they put on the Vees in the final minute was one of their better shifts. He was also happy with their play in the final 10 minutes. They outshot the Vees 7-5 after the home team had the second period advantage, 13-8. “We were pushing the Vees back in their defensive zone, creating lots of scoring chances,” he said, adding that he felt the Vipers competed hard. “We just couldn’t beat Brodeur in net. I thought he was a little shaky. Came up with some big saves that kept them in the game and … we kept shooting pucks on him and he ended up making saves he needed to make. It was a tough loss and we will rebound for next game (tonight at home vs Coquitlam).” SNAKE BITES: Former Viper Mike Zalewski helped the Vancouver Canucks ground the Winnipeg Jets 4-1 in Monday actino at the Canucks Young Stars Tournament in Penticton. Zalewski, who was part of the Utica Comets Calder Cup run last season, beat Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck 34 seconds into the third period to give the Canucks a 2-1 lead...F Chase Zieky of the Langley Rivermen has committed to play for defending NCAA champion Providence College Friars for next season.

World-class curl field set ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Another star-studded international field will converge on the Vernon Curling Club in October. Past event champions, provincial winners, Canadian champions and former world champs are dotted among the teams entered for the annual Prestige Hotels and Resorts Curling Classic Oct. 1-5. “We’ve got teams from the U.S., Japan, Korea and Switzerland joining the Canadian rinks,” said Vernon Curling Club manager Dave Merklinger. A total of 28 women’s teams will compete for $37,000 in prize money, led by defending champion Ayumi Ogasawara of Japan, who knocked off Edmonton’s Val Sweeting in the 2014 Classic final. Three-time event winner Cheryl Bernard of Calgary is returning as is 2006 winner, Kelly Scott of Kelowna. The field also includes 2006 Olympic bronze medalist and 2008 Prestige winner Shannon Kleibrink of Calgary and Scotties Tournament of Hearts national championship participants Patti Knezevic of Prince George (reigning B.C. women’s champ),

Stefanie Lawton and Michelle Englot of Saskatchewan,and former Canadian Junior queen Corryn Brown of Kamloops.

Joining Cotter and his rink of Ryan Kuhn, Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky is current Canadian men’s champion Pat Simmons of Calgary, whose team includes former Cotter skip John Morris. “Having Jim playing at home will be great,” said Merklinger. “He’s had a terrific start to the year, winning a Slam event (Tour Challenge Tier 2 Division) in Newfoundland, and making the semifinals in Toronto (Stu Sells Oakville Tankard).” Grant Dezura of Maple Ridge beat Brent Pierce of Kelowna in last year’s Classic final. Both rinks return in 2015. Also competing on the men’s draw will be the likes of New Westminster’s Dean Joanisse, who lost the 2015 provincial final to Cotter at the Vernon Curling Club in February, and Vernon’s Jamie Sexton,who is backed by James McKenzie, former World Junior champion Hugh Bennett and Rob Norbert.

Vandenbrink wins on points Morning Star Staff

Vernon golf pro Keith Vandenbrink made a point Monday in Kelowna. Quite a few points, actually. The Hillview pro won the Interior Professional Golf Association’s latest tour event at Gallagher’s Canyon, where golfers were awarded points based on their hole scores (four points for eagle, three for birdie, two for par, one for bogey and no points for double bogey or worse). Vandenbrink won the event with 37 points, after firing six birdies, three bogeys, one double and parring the rest of the holes. “I started slow with bogeys on three of the first four holes, birdied sixth, made the double on seven, then got on a nice run with birdies on nine, 10, 11 and 12,” said Vandenbrink, who pocketed $500 for the win. Vandenbrink finished the round at 1-under 71. n Vernon’s Brady Stead helped the top-ranked college golf team in Canada blow away the field at the PACWEST season-opening tournament last

weekend in Kelowna. Stead and his No.1-ranked Camosun College Chargers of Victoria scored a 12-stroke win at the UBCO Invitational, held at the Okanagan Golf and Country Club. A field of seven men’s teams and two women’s teams came out to challenge the 18-hole, 6,885 yard Bear Course. On the men’s side, the Chargers (580), the host UBC-O Heat (592) and the defending PACWEST Champions, the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades, (597) finished top-three. Stead followed up an opening-round 71 with a 72 to finish four overall at 143. Teammate Mac Keats of Cochrane, Alta. shot a 3-under 69 on Day 2 for low score of the day and tied for second overall. “The guys fought hard all weekend,” said Chargers head coach John Randle. “I’m proud of their grit and look forward to the rest of the season. With a little more work and getting rid of some mental errors, our best golf is still ahead of us.”

U11 boys place 4th Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Under 11 Development boys team placed fourth in the Revelstoke Little Bear Soccer Classic weekend. Coach Dave Eddy’s crew played up in the U12 division and were schooled 10-1 by the eventual champion Canmore Avalanche in their Saturday opener. “We were taught a lesson on what can happen when you aren’t prepared and are caught watching and chasing the ball around,” said Eddy. Vernon rebounded with a stellar effort in a scoreless draw with the Kootenay South Storm. Landon Janke and Daxton Podollan created havoc up front by striking two crossbars and two posts. Marcus Pederson, Liam Collins, Alexander Jones and Jared Eddy held up the back line. Aidan Winn and Fraser Christenson recorded some splendid saves to share the shutout Game 3 went Sunday morning against Columbia Valley Titans, and with second place in the pool on the line, Vernon won 6-1 to make the bronze-medal match. Podollan, Cash Anderson, Owen Challen, Colby MacManaman and Alexander Jones controlled the midfield and Janke twisted free and converted for the first snipe. The second goal was a one-time

bomb from Eddy that was still rising as it found net. Marcus Pederson made it 3-0 on a 25-yard free kick with the Titans replying before the recess off a deflection. Jared and Janke both scored again and Podollan put the game out of reach in the final half. That put Vernon second in their pool and up against the Canmore Celtic Warriors, who posted a 5-1 win in the Sunday afternoon final. Vernon put on some immediate pressure with several goes at goal. Canmore went in front 2-0 before Vernon regained their composure and controlled the play to half time with a few good chances. Canmore buried a pair in less than five minutes into the second half. Vernon pushed forward and were rewarded with a late penalty that Janke calmly put away. Added Eddy: “The boys showed great spirit this weekend and worked hard winning and losing together as a team and always with good sportsmanship. They left it all out there.” Vernon United U14 girls tied one game and lost three at a recent tournament in Maple Ridge. United played against teams from Port Moody, West Coast FC and North Shore. Nadia Smith, Emilia Durfeld, Kelsey Carriere and keeper Hailey Yablonski received MVPs.

Kids summit fit for Vernon Morning Star Staff

Individuals from across the province interested in youth and families are coming to Vernon. The Cities Fit for Children Provincial Summit runs Nov. 12 and 13 at the Best Western Vernon Lodge. “We expect an enthusiastic response from our community, region and province to the many learning and networking opportunities that this event will provide,” said Lynne Reside, event coordinator. The summit is being hosted by the City of Vernon and the North Okanagan Early Years Council. “Our goal is for communities to increase their capacity to support families through development of a shared vision and increased cooperation and collaboration,” said Reside. “It will be of interest to municipal government and staff, school districts, health authorities, aboriginal leaders and service providers, child and youth practitioners, advocates, business, faith groups and anyone concerned about healthy, vibrant cities and healthy and thriving children and youth.”

“Community activities will showcase our city.” — Lynn Reside

Keynote speakers include Paul Born, an internationally acclaimed supporter of community development initiatives, Dr. Suzanne Crowhurst Lennard, a long-time advocate for livable cities, and Dr. Paul Kershaw, a researcher at the University of B.C. “Presenters from throughout the province will provide delegates with a wide variety of workshop choices. Community activities will showcase our city,” said Reside. Planning for the summit has involved local government, child and youth practitioners, business, health professionals, aboriginal stakeholders and other interested community citizens.

NOCCA hosts world premiere to open season Borealis String Quartet to perform piece by renowned Coldstream composer Imant Raminsh Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

Greater Vernon classical music fans are about to witness a world premiere right in their backyard. What makes the opening of the North Okanagan Community Concert Association’s (NOCCA) 62nd season even more special is that the premiere involves a composition written by Coldstream’s own Imant Raminsh, and will be performed by Vancouver’s world renowned Borealis String Quartet. Imant Raminsh The gala performance takes place at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Raminsh’s connection to Borealis goes back long before the quartet was even conceived, and involves Borealis’ violinist Yuel Yawney, who grew up in Vernon. Yawney’s parents, Jo and Marsh Yawney, also professional musicians, not only sang in the original lineup of the Aura Chamber Choir, which Raminsh founded in 1979, but like Raminsh, they also performed in the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra (Jo on viola and Marsh on cello). “They spent many years here before moving to Victoria,” said Raminsh, who has kept up his connection with the Yawneys. “Besides their son, they also have a daughter who is a singer. I watched them grow up.” It was in 2001, the year after Borealis formed, that Raminsh was asked to write his first violin string quartet. However, the commission was hit by tragedy. It began when David Mardon, a Kamloops-based music enthusiast and a compliance technician with the Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection, asked Raminsh, also a violinist, about starting a valley-wide string festival. “We were hoping to have it annually or biannually and we were planing the event for the following year and wanted Borealis to be the quartet in residence and for me to

Borealis String Quartet violinists Yuel Yawney, left, and Patricia Shih, violist Nikita Pogrebnoy and cellist Bo Peng open the 62nd North Okanagan Community Concert season with a gala performance Thursday, Sept. 24. write a piece for them. But then David was murdered.” Killed by a disgruntled coworker at the ministry office where he worked, Mardon never saw his dream come to fruition. However, the composition did see the light of day. In 2002, Chamber Music Kelowna hosted Borealis to premiere Raminsh’s string quartet, Elegy (A Falcon, A Storm, or a Great Song). It was dedicated to Mardon. Later approached by Yawney to write another quartet in memory of his friend Sylvia Russell, Raminsh penned String Quartet No. 2 (subtitled The Waking, after a poem by Roethke). “I had a publisher in Toronto interested

in my solo vocal repertoire and I asked him if he’d publish my string quartets,” said Raminsh. “I believe Borealis received good mileage from the first and second quartets I wrote. They have even wanted to do a full recording of them.” Raminsh’s third string quartet, originally called Dialogues, was written in 1990 for two instruments. He reworked the new version, now untitled, for two violins, viola and cello two years ago. “Over the course of my career there have been times where I have reworked things from their original form. If it was originally for treble voice, I’d rewrite it for mixed choir. For this (third quartet), I made it more approachable.

“It’s a very celebratory piece and upbeat. It’s less cohesive than the others and harder to excerpt the movements. (However), this one has individual suites, which could be performed in a scaled-down version.” Having one of the most dynamic and exciting world-class ensembles of its generation perform the world premiere is the icing on the cake. Featuring Patricia Shih on first violin, Yawney on second violin, violist Nikita Pogrebnoy, and cellist Bo Peng, Borealis has received international critical acclaim as an ensemble praised for its fiery performances, passionate style, and refined musical interpretation. “For the most part string quartets have an interesting chemistry,” said Raminsh. “Typically, the first violinist is the authoritative and the second violinist plays the supporting role and the cellist has to be play to be heard. Everything with a string quartet is intense. There’s the sharing of ideas, the interpretation, the tempo. When you watch (Borealis), their precision is machine-like.” Along with the world premiere, Borealis will perform Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 4 in C Minor, Opus 18, and Dvorak’s Quartet No. 12 in F major (The American). “Not only will the audience be thrilled with Borealis, but NOCCA will be continuing the Rising Star performances initiated earlier this year,” said president Paul Maynes. Seventeen-year-old award-winning violinist Julien Haynes will warm up the audience before Borealis takes the stage. A student of Bev Martens at the Vernon Community Music School since he could hold a violin, Haynes has completed his Grade 10 Royal Conservatory of Music exams in violin, as well as his Grade 6 RCM in piano. Haynes will be accompanied on the piano by Lauren Dvorak. The NOCCA follows up this performance with the all-female gypsy-jazz quartet Christine Tassan et les Imposteures Nov. 1, the inaugural North Okanagan Youth Showcase, featuring local young talent, Jan. 31, pianist Sergei Saratovsky Feb. 21, the Wolak-Donnelly Duo (piano and clarinet) March 20 and Kokopelli & The University Of Pretoria Youth Choirs April 25. All performances take place at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre and season subscriptions as well as individual tickets are available at the Ticket Seller box office.

The visit

iblings Becca (Olivia DeJong) and Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) are 15 and 13 years old before they are presented the opportunity to meet their grandparents. Their mom (Kathryn Hahn) left home on poor terms 20 years ago and it wasn’t until recently that peace had been reinstated in the family, via the internet. At first Becca and Tyler find Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie) and Nana (Deanne Dunagan) to be charming, atypical grandparents. Nana bakes cookies and Pop Pop tends to the farm chores. But it isn’t long after their 9:30 p.m. bedtime that the kids discover their grandparents exhibit strange behaviours. Pop Pop is paranoid and spends a lot of time staring. Nana is cryptic during the day and runs around the house naked at night, with a knife. Told that it’s better for the kids to stay in their room after 9:30 p.m., Becca and Tyler will be lucky to survive the week they are meant to stay. We say, “It’s a traditional thriller with a mild Shyamalan twist.”

Reel Reviews

Taylor and Howe

TAYLOR: There are a few things that annoyed me about The Visit: the hand-held first person documentary style (in the hands of children, no less) and the fact that the kids were unbelievably eloquent and poetic. However, as an inexpensive, simple little thriller, it’s not bad. It even has some creepy uncomfortableness. Nothing really scary, unless you consider being startled scary. I do not. HOWE: Like all M. Night Shyamalan movies, I enjoyed this film. They always seem to have a little twist at the end, something a little different, a little strange. The Visit may not be up there with Signs or The Sixth Sense, but it kept me entertained from start to finish. What I have noticed about his films is once you have seen them and know the ending, you don’t really have to watch them again as you know what is

Universal PictUres

Nana (Deanne Dunagan) has to laugh to chase away the darkness in The Visit. going to happen. If you pay attention, he drops in subtle clues to let you know what is going on. Is it scary? Not really. It’s just a little Shyamalan twisted. TAYLOR: It had a very independent, inexpensive feel with only four characters and one farmhouse. There is no fancy makeup or special effects. It’s very straightforward. So, in terms of the quality of the movie, it’s going to rate pretty high. Although, even at the end when you get your

Shyamalanian twist, there’s something about it that’s rather dull and unimaginative. Yet, I think this is a great little thriller for young people. It’s PG-13 and very clean. I suggest grandparents take grandchildren. HOWE: I thought this was one of the better documentary style movies. The acting from the kids was maybe a little over the top but they did a good job. Even the audience was laughing with some of the household goings-on. I have just recently

seen Oxenbould in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I feel he could go on to be a big star, but then again didn’t we hear that about Haley Joel Osment? – Taylor gives The Visit 3 photographs out of 5. – Howe gives it 3.5 cookies out of 5.

Dance to Cuban rhythms in Enderby Morning Star Staff

It will be like visiting a musicfilled dance hall in Havana when the Enderby and District Arts Council hosts Brisas del Parmar at the Enderby Drill Hall, Sept. 25. “It will be a great evening of music and dancing to the wonderful five-member band from Santiago de Cuba,” said Diana Inselberg, council vicepresident. “Their rich harmonies have been pleasing crowds in Santiago de Cuba since their inception in 1999, where they perfected the boleros, sons, and guarachas of their island homeland.” Formed by brothers Rosel and Yordanis Lamoru Cancanon in 1999, Brisas del Palmar is part of the 450 Group, which is a prestigious catalogue of the top Cuban music groups at the Cuban Institute of Music. Brisas del Parmar is known for their ability to arrange, perform and harmonize their voices to produce a sound that is captivating to its audiences. They present a varied repertoire of traditional Cuban music, a cappellas, romantic ballads, salsa, son, guaracha, merengue, cumbia and bachata, with music and original compositions, reflecting their unique style and interpretation. Rosel is lead vocalist, guitarist, composer, arranger and director of Brisas del Palmar. He is a self-taught musician from Cayo Mambi in the province of Holquin, Cuba, who has become recognized for an extensive repertoire of not only his compositions but also for his diverse musical approach. Yordanis serves as vocalist, requinto guitarist and minor percussionist in the band, while bassist Julio Avila Gainza has a

Together, they performed Changui, a musical genre that has roots in Gainza’s home province of Guantanamo, Cuba. Brisas del Palmar is featured daily on Radio Taino, the national tourism radio station of Cuba. In winter months the band performs at the Bodeguita del Medio, the Havana bar made famous by writer Ernest Hemingway, now the most important music venue

in Havana. The group has toured B.C. and Alberta since 2003, playing to enthusiastic crowds at music festivals and summer concerts, and is joined by two other musicians for its current Western Canada tour. Brisas del Parmar take the stage at 7:30 p.m. at the Enderby Drill Hall, 200 George St./Hwy 97A south. Tickets are $15, available at the door ($10 for youth under 18) Refreshments will be served.

The new new wave

O

Metric: Pagans in Vegas

n their sixth album, Pagans in Vegas, Toronto indie rockers Metric get down with synthesizers to get back to the future. It’s an interesting idea for the futuristic sounding band to follow but they’re a quartet of rebellious electro rockers who like to strut while they sing dystopian tales of disconnection.  Dean Gordon-Smith The band, especially vocalist Emily Haines, seems to inspire hyperbole in reviews. She’s an intellectual pin-up girl for those who don’t find electronic sounds appealing.  With Pagans in Vegas, the group’s flair for the dramatic isn’t obvious. Haines’ delivery is cool and menacing and her vocal always finds a repetitive hook (The Shade).  The extra texture of synthesizers and beats adds a wash of dreamy backdrop on Celebrate as it pushes Haines’ melody up front.  The same production obscures her voice on Cascades and overwhelms Too Bad, So Sad, turning it into a contrived performance that seems pointless.  The recording loses the plot when James Shaw (guitar, keys, vocals) takes over on the microphone for Other Side. His pleasant-enough voice lacks the edge to contrast the synth wash the song runs on.

Kinew to speak

Celebrated journalist, writer, and hip hop artist Wab Kinew is in Kelowna Sept. 30 for UBC Okanagan’s Distinguished Speaker Series. Kinew will speak about his new book, The Reason You Walk, which reflects the time he spent reconnecting with his dad shortly after his father was diagnosed with cancer. Kinew, who has a degree in economics, has become an accomplished journalist and motivational speaker. He helped produce and host the CBC series 8th Fire, has hosted Canada Reads, is an Aljazeera America correspondent, and at the same time is the associate vice-president of Indigenous Affairs at the University of Winnipeg. His hip hop music has won an Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Award, his journalism has won accolades, and he’s been nominated for a Gemini. Postmedia News has called him one of “nine Aboriginal movers and shakers you should know.” Kinew will be at the Kelowna Community Theatre Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but preregistration is required at www.speakers.ok.ubc.ca.

Metric’s James Shaw, Emily Haines, Joshua Winstead and Joules Scott-Key go back to the future on new album Pagans in Vegas. For Kicks dims the background to bring back the Metric of yore with enough detached yearning and grind to get over the earlier sidetracks. Likewise on songs like Blind Valentine – they tap into the pulse and mood of the ‘80s/’90s electro band era.  When they keep it stark on tracks like Lie Lie Lie, the Metric of old appears in full force.  Pagans in Vegas has the feel of a concept album. Songs like The Shade chase a sound that the band already hinted at in earlier recordings. Either way, it’s a richly textured recording with less of the Metric edge than expected.

Kids get a Strong Start Cara Brady Morning Star Staff

The children have fun at Strong Start and so do their parents. “Something beautiful happens as a sense of community builds. We meet each child and family where they are and consider individual needs and concerns,” said Strong Start facilitator Anne McMeekingWalsh, who is the Vernon Women in Business Woman of the Year, honoured for her contributions to early childhood education in the community. “The children learn through play and we help families recognize what their children can potentially be learning by playing. Parents are often amazed that their children are capable of so many things. Children find wonder and joy in each day and new experience. They are always full of surprises. That’s why I love working with them.” The Strong Start program, sponsored by School District 22, is free to all families with qualified early childhood educators leading activities which include stories, music, gross and fine motor skills indoors and outdoors and creative art. Snacks are provided. McMeeking-Walsh, who is a mother of four, is the facilitator for the Strong Start program at Okanagan Landing school. “I like it when the students who were in the program come back when they are in the higher grades to say hi and see what we’re doing. We’re happy that they have good memories of their time in Strong Start. We work closely with the kindergarten teachers, including a visit to a kindergarten classroom for children before they start so they know what to expect,” she said. Strong Start is a drop-in program so that families can attend when it fits their schedules, even going to Strong Start programs at more than one school if that fits their needs. Registration can take place on the first day a family comes to the program — all that is needed is the child(ren)’s birth certificate(s). “Parents are looking for a learning experience that is fun, a way to meet other parents and for their children to make friends. “If parents want, we can help them with the Ages and Stages screening tool that

Anne McMeeking-Walsh, Strong Start facilitator, is looking forward to the fall programs. Strong Start takes place in area schools and is a play-based early learning program for children ages birth to five years and their parents. will show where a child is for their age. There is referral to supports within the community as needed,” said Cullie Dueck, primary literacy coordinator, School District 22. “How we parent has changed, neighbourhoods have changed, families want to meet other families and build a sense of community.”

“Children find wonder and joy in each day and new experience.” — Anne McMeeking-Walsh

Parents are enthusiastic about Strong Start. “It means so much to me to have somewhere to go that the children enjoy and that is so warm and welcoming,” said Dr. Aisha Manji. McMeeking-Walsh thinks that parents hold their children closer than they used to while at the same time letting them go sooner, as many go to daycare while young. She has always loved children, and remembers growing up with a lot of neigh-

bourhood children where she was often the babysitter. She started her working life in retail and when a customer told her about early childhood education (ECE) training, she decided it was right for her. She got her certification and worked for the North Okanagan Childcare Society until she was encouraged to come to Strong Start six years ago. “There are such wonderful moments here, like when you see two two-year-olds walking down the hall hand-in-hand, or watching a toddler or pre-schooler sit in the teacher’s chair and pretend to lead the group, singing our song, ‘Hello everybody and how are you?’ I am so happy to come to work every day.” There are four Strong Start programs in Vernon. Mission Hill elementary (facilitator Chris McMorran), Harwood elementary, (facilitator Lori Webb), and Alexis Park elementary (facilitator Cori Novakowski) have morning sessions Monday to Friday. Okanagan Landing elementary has an afternoon session on Monday with morning sessions Tuesday to Friday. For more information about Strong Start, call one of the schools or see the school district website at www.sd22.bc.ca.

The sun shines on Butter Tart Festival Morning Star Staff

Blessed with good weather and record attendance, Lumby’s first Butter Tart Festival and Contest was a big success. More than 200 people passed through the Market Sept. 12 to enjoy the sunshine, the contest, eating butter tart samples and listening to some toe-tapping music.

“There were extraordinary traditional pecan butter tarts in the running, but the winning entry, baked by Euan Harron of Lumby, took the old favourite to new heights of deliciousness with the addition of white chocolate and brandy,” said festival organizer Dona Easto. Kelowna resident Vaness a Pfannenschmidt scored

third place in the People’s Choice category by including wholesome local ingredients in a luscious recipe of her own creation. “The recipe is a secret, but we foresee big things for this talented first-time competitor,” said Easto. She said judges Rick Fairbairn, Regional District of

North Okanagan; Judy Phillips, Lumby IDA Pharmacy; and Ken and Audrey Ingram of Lumby had a tough job choosing three winning butter tarts from among 20 outstanding entries. “I’m very pleased with this, our first festival,” said Easto, “we’re definitely going to be back next year.

ing watch over the requirements for early detection and fire containment. They make it possible for fires to be quickly extinguished before they grow into something that will threaten the safety of people’s lives and property. They insure that firefighters can perform their jobs in a safe, efficient and effective manner. And finally, fire inspections are critical in making sure there is a safe way out so that in the case of any emergency, everyone can safely leave the building. Keeping you, your customers and your property safe is what Vernon Fire Rescue Services is all about and fire inspections play a major role in doing just that.

et’s start with an analogy: If we were intending to walk on the moon, most of us understand there are certain things we would need to do in order to stay safe. When we plan long road trips, we take safety precautions to protect ourselves, our passengers and other drivers, from vehicle maintenance and just-in-case gear to buckling up and following the rules of the road. We expect pilots and mechanics to tick Lawrie Skolrood off every box on their safety checklist prior to takeoff so that we arrive safe and sound at our destination. So it still surprises me that the same thing isn’t necessarily true closer to home, when owners of public buildings don’t fully understand their responsibilities regarding fire safety. Much like walking on the moon, driving on the highway or flying on a plane, fire safety is critical to everyone’s safety and wellbeing. In fact, in B.C., public building owners are accountable for the public’s safety – particularly when members of the public are in their building and at the mercy of the environment being provided. Unfortunately, getting the sale or having the show go on is often prioritized over providing basic levels of safety — a reckless and potentially lethal gamble. Thankfully, in our society, we have embraced the idea that you shouldn’t have to risk life and limb when embarking on a day of shopping or a night at the theatre, and as a province, we have taken steps to insure our safety by creating the B.C. Fire Services Act. This act legally requires that buildings frequented by the general public maintain at least a minimum level of fire safety. The B.C. Fire Code is the document that administers how this is to be done. I would like to stress, it is the minimum level of fire safety that we as British Columbians require in our public buildings. B.C. municipalities have a legal responsibility to insure that public buildings within their jurisdiction meet this minimum level of fire safety by delivering a regular system of fire inspections. Historically, municipalities have tasked the fire service with performing these fire inspections. This is just good common sense: knowing the conditions under which a fire can start — as well as how to put fires out — provides a huge advantage towards knowing what to look for to prevent fires from happening in the first place. And it’s good common sense and good public policy that these fire inspections take place regularly. However, common sense doesn’t always prevail when we undertake these inspections. The fire service has been accused of interfering with a business owner’s right to earn a living or that the inspections are just something a fire department does to keep ourselves busy when we aren’t fighting fires. But fire inspections are part of the responsibility of keeping people and property safe from fire. Fire inspections are a diligent effort towards stopping fire from occurring in the first place. They are what we as a society expect when it comes to our personal safety. And they are about allowing a business or building owner to focus on what it is they do while at the same time providing peace of mind that they are abiding by their legal obligation to provide for the safety of everyone that comes into their building. Fire inspections check that the right equipment is being used and maintained properly and that flammable and combustible materials are stored in a safe manner. They provide for the responsible and safe use of any sources of ignition while keep-

Campground, by the river at Lillooet, I was ready for a chilled Riesling from the nearby Fort Berens winery. The air conditioning worked over time as we tucked into a warm salad – well, it was by the time it was served! Respect for fellow campers, prompted a click of the AC off switch after lights out. Day Three: Lillooet to Vernon features open highway and the chance to open up the throttle. It’s easy to push the needle to 100 klicks but frankly the higher speed take away from the visual delights displayed on both sides of the road. And as I slowed I put myself in the driver’s seat of the car behind, pulling to the side every time I spotted three cars in my mirror. The Cedar Falls Campground is a picturesque and tranquil woodland spot by Silver Star Mountain. The howling coyotes were a nice reminder that this is wilderness. A further reminder holding your iPhone in outstretched hand to get a signal from the camp Wi-Fi! We also had mobile Wi-Fi aboard, which worked well on the road.

Rider Safety:

All gear all the time By Alexandra Straub

Six motorcycle riders in BC are injured daily in the peak summer months of July and August, according to ICBC. Furthermore, 80 percent of those involved in such cases are caused by motor vehicles. Whether it’s failing to shoulder check, blowing through a stop sign, turning left when the intersection isn’t clear, or simply not seeing a rider, understand you’re not the only one on the road. We are blessed out west to have a longer riding season than most so it’s not too late this year for us to take to heart the lessons we can take from these staggering statistics. “In B.C., more than six in 10 car crashes involving motorcycles happen at intersections,” said Lindsay Matthews, ICBC’s director responsible for road safety. “It can be hard to judge how fast a motorcycle is travelling, so drivers need to watch carefully when turning left and be ready to yield the right-of-way. Whether you’re riding a motorcycle or driving a car, do your part to share our roads safely and keep your mind on the road.” As an avid motorcyclist, I’ve experienced all of those scenarios. Luckily, they were all near misses, but they’re still frustrating. The take home message is that drivers need to pay more attention. That said, riders, you pay attention as well! Safety is everyone’s responsibility and it doesn’t have to be a chore on either end.

Along with paying attention, a way to mitigate damage done when riding is to wear all your gear all the time. There’s nothing more cringe-worthy than

seeing someone captaining a motorcycle in a tank top or t-shirt, shorts, flip flops or canvas shoes. To top it all off, they’re carrying a passenger wearing just as little as they are.

‘‘

Though, they’re wearing helmets, so it’s okay, right? – No, absolutely not.

Alexandra Straub

The take home message is that drivers need to pay more attention.

’’

Riders, have you ever banged your elbow on a hard surface? Or hit your ankle against something? Now amplify that pain by the weight and speed that you’re motorcycle is travelling at. Is it worth being a little less hot on a warm day? It doesn’t matter how good of a rider you are, or how many years you’ve been doing it, accidents happen and you want to be prepared for the worst even when you’re having fun. Actor Don McLeod had just finished filming ICBC safety gear videos (see below) and was involved in a crash not even a week after completing the segments. Normally, his riding attire was minimal, to say the least. With the only a helmet being mandatory to ride in BC, the rest of your safety gear – proper boots with protection, gloves, a jacket, riding pants (Kevlar jeans, textile or leather) are all optional. In a Facebook post, McLeod recounts his injuries, including smashing his face, and skidding across the pavement. His full-face helmet literally saved is head, and the rest of his protective gear left him bruised and sore, but in one piece and with minimal damage. Some of the best advice given to me as a new rider was in relation to, “You’re spending thousands on your bike yet you don’t want to spend a few hundred dollars on a proper jacket and pants?” I certainly took that to heart. Included are a few links on the difference between various types of safety equipment and how they protect during impact.

Bridge by Phillip Alder THIRD HAND CAN ALSO GIVE COUNT Mogens Jallberg (about whom, surprisingly, the Internet has no information) said, “In democracy, it’s your vote that counts; in feudalism, it’s your count that votes.” In bridge, it’s your card that counts - it may give partner count information that makes the difference between success and failure - as in this deal. How should the defenders card to defeat three notrump after West leads his fourth-highest heart? In my opinion, North, with such a strong doubleton, should have raised one no-trump to three notrump. It is possible that, if a 4-4 spade fit exists, four spades will make and three

no-trump fail, but that is unlikely, and when a majorsuit fit was not found, it just gave the defenders free information. South starts with six top tricks: three spades, one heart (after winning the first trick), one diamond and one club. If the diamond finesse is winning, the contract will make with at least one overtrick. But if the finesse is losing, maybe West will not know that South’s heart king is now a singleton. After West leads the heart five and dummy plays the six, East must resist the natural reaction to cover with his eight. When third hand cannot contribute a nine or higher, he should give count. Here, he plays his three: low from an odd number. This tells West that

South started with only two hearts; it could not be four because he denied a fourcard major in the auction. Declarer will win with his heart jack, cross to dummy with a spade, and run the diamond 10. Now West should work out to win with his diamond king and cash the heart ace, which results in a speedy down one.

Limited Compliance Actions Highlight Commitment to Professionalism The Vehicle Sales Authority (VSA) oversees the licensed motor dealer industry in British Columbia. The industry represents 430,000 transactions, or $10 billion in regulated vehicle sales, each year. Despite more than 1,300 consumer enquiries, nearly 800 dealer inspections and ongoing advertising monitoring, a typical 12 month period generates the following compliance activities: ❚ Voluntary acknowledgement and action by 15 to 20 dealers that errors were made during the representation and sale of vehicles, as documented in signed undertakings ❚ Up to five dealers facing hearings before the Registrar of Motor Dealers for allegations of deceptive business practices ❚ 500 consumer-initiated investigations, resulting in the return of $1 million to consumers ❚ And, as a result of licensing

reviews, three to five salesperson licences will be denied, one or two will be suspended and others will be issued with conditions based on prior conduct. Licensing and business practice decisions of the Registrar were also recently upheld by the BC Supreme Court, following applications for judicial review. The licensed vehicle sales industry in BC includes over 1,400 licensed RV, motorcycle and auto dealers that employ over 7,000 licensed salespeople. In the last 12 months, 1,600 new salespeople and 100 new dealers were certified and licensed. Consumer awareness activities, like the Watch out for Walt! campaign, are ongoing. Consumer information, complete compliance details and the 2015 VSA Annual Report, which includes a full summary of VSA activities for the last three years, can be found at vehiclesalesauthority.com.

CURBERS SELL VEHICLES THAT MAY BE UNSAFE OR STOLEN! Curbers are individuals and businesses selling vehicles for profit without a licence Curbers may get junk cars and sell them from parking lots while posing as private sellers. They advertise through local newspapers and online ads. They may not disclose the vehicle history to the buyer, hiding serious accident

damage or even a rolled back odometer. Licensed dealers are required by law to sell safe, lien-free vehicles and disclose vehicle histories. If you buy from Walt, you have none of the protections of buying from a licensed dealer.

At a minimum, get a CarProof Vehicle History Report before you buy Find a licensed dealer or report a curber at
