The City of Vernon’s population reached 40,497 in 2015, a 3.4 per cent increase from the previous year. The North Okanagan’s population was 84,587 in 2015.
Fast-growing population in the region RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
The North Okanagan’s population has climbed, with one of the communities a leader provincially. B.C. Stats says the Regional District of North Okanagan’s population climbed 1.9 per cent from 83,0111 in 2014 to 84,587 in 2015. Of that, Kevin Poole Vernon’s population jumped 3.4 per cent from 39,167 to 40,497, making it the fifth fastest growing among B.C. cities with a population of 25,000 or more, while RDNO was the third fastest growing regional district.

“A lot of people recognize it’s a great place to live,” said Kevin Poole, Vernon’s economic development manager. Poole suspects the population has climbed partly because of the downturn in Alberta’s economy and oil and gas workers making a lifestyle choice. “A lot of people have decided to go into semi-retirement mode.” For other local communities, the B.C. Stats report shows Armstrong’s population grew 1.5 per cent from 4,878 in 2014 to 4,951 in 20151, while Coldstream’s population went from 10,523 to 10,821 or up 2.8 per cent. In Spallumcheen, there was 0.8 per cent growth from 5,166 to 5,207. But not all communities expanded. Enderby’s population went from 2,878 to 2,840 or a decrease of 1.3 per cent.
“People are born, people die. We have two to three deaths a week,” said Greg McCune, Enderby’s mayor, who isn’t concerned about the decrease. “We’re seeing more young families because of the schools here and affordable real estate. We were an aging community and we’re seeing that change.” Lumby had a population of 1,753 in 2015, down 0.9 per cent from 1,769 in 2014, while the combined population of the five electoral areas dropped 0.6 per cent from 18,630 to 18,518. While focused on the city, Poole welcomes the overall figures regionally because residents of the other communities shop in Vernon. That trend will help Vernon’s attempts to lure investors here, including commercial developers.

“It shows we’re a growing community, there’s opportunities and confidence in the marketplace,” said Poole. Poole admits that increased population also creates challenges as municipalities must provide services such as water, sewer and roads. “But would you rather be in a community with negative growth with the same pressures for services and a shrinking tax base?” he said. In the Regional District of Central Okanagan, the total population is 195,523, up from 189,845 in 2014. Lake Country’s population jumped 7.6 per cent from 13,048 to 14,035. Besides Vernon, the other four fastest growing cities in B.C. were Langford, near Victoria, at 7.2 per cent, West Kelowna at 5.3 per cent, Chilliwack at 4.8 per cent and Langley at 3.5 per cent.
Another portion of Greater Vernon’s natural environment has been preserved. The Regional District of North Okanagan has purchased 13.43 acres along Swan Lake, on the north end of Crane Road off of Meadowlark Road. “It will be a natural, passive park,” said Tannis Nelson, community development coordinator. It’s not known when public access will occur, but development of the park could start this year, including a trail between Crane and Lochdale roads. “It’s the only piece of publicly owned land with actual lake access,” said Bob Fleming, BX-Swan Lake director, adding that an ultimate goal is to have a small dock for canoeists. “I hope there will be interpretive information on the site or a viewing platform for people to see the wildlife.” The property, which was the site of the CJIB radio tower, has been farmed in the past. “There’s a lot of weeds on the property so we will try to get it to as natural a state as possible,” said Fleming. The regional district paid $615,000 for the site. RDNO also has a natural reserve off of Old Kamloops Road but there is not access to Swan Lake.

Man killed in accident
Morning Star Staff
One man is dead after a single-vehicle accident in Vernon Wednesday. Emergency services personnel were called to an area near the Prestige Inn at around 10 p.m. “A pickup travelling northbound on 32nd Street (Highway 97) hit a light standard, went off the road and down an embankment and ended up near an auto wreckers,” said Jack Blair with Vernon Fire Rescue Services. “There was one occupant of the vehicle, a man, who was critically injured. There was quite extensive damage to the vehicle.” The name of the man has not been released. Vernon RCMP have said he is from the Vernon area. The accident remains under investigation.

Committee simplifies rate structure RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
It will be easier for politicians and bureaucrats to wade through the process of setting water rates. The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee has decided to simplify the rate structure by reducing the number of tiers from five to three. Other aspects of the process have been streamlined. “It doesn’t change the overall revenue,” said Zee Marcolin, water utility manager.
GVAC members have also decided to hold a workshop in May to determine multiple objectives for rates. Juliette Cunningham, chairperson, says the discussion has to include agricultural fees. “That`s a real hot-button issue but we hear from residential customers that they don`t like subsidizing agriculture,” she said. “Every year we go through this debate and we`re tweaking here and tweaking there. We can all agree that it`s not working.” There was a suggestion that residential,
industrial, commercial and industrial users pay the same base and consumption fees. “It’s all the same potable water. It`s about fairness,” said director Bob Spiers. However, director Mike Macnabb suggested such a move could penalize large water customers. “I’d like to know what Sleeman’s thinks if the rates jump. If they walk down the road, there will be a hole in Vernon with taxes,” he said. There is a proposed two per cent increase overall to all water rates in 2016.
Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP used a spike belt to stop a suspected stolen vehicle Wednesday night. A Toyota pickup reported stolen earlier that day was stopped on a forest service road off Westside Road after police deployed the spike belt. The truck came to a safe stop and one individual, believed to be from the Vernon area, was arrested and taken into custody. No one was injured in the incident.

Film agency seeks support
2016 STARTING FROM
RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
An economic driver will likely continue to be fuelled by taxpayers. The Okanagan Film Commission asked the Regional District of North Okanagan Wednesday for a grant to cover operations in 2016. “The economic impact they bring is incredible,” said director Akbal Mund. The participating jurisdictions in the RDNO function are Vernon, Coldstream and Armstrong and they provided $33,000 in 2015 and the same amount is budgeted this year. “I would like to see more communities involved because Akbal Mund everyone benefits from the film industry,” said Mund. “The money is spent locally. People need to convince their councils that this is important.” Independently, Enderby gave $900 to the commission last year and funds are set aside again in 2016. Summerland The OFC has a $199,000 budget, with funds also coming from the two other regional districts in the Okanagan and the provincial government. The return investment is about $15 million, including from animation studios, feature films, TV shows and commercials. Besides drawing productions here, the OFC is also focused on growing the industry. As part of that, it`s hosting a fundamentals weekend for those who work behind the scenes. “We need crew. This will help build our crew base and get people excited about the industry,” Jon Summerland, film commissioner, told the regional district board.

One, the employer ensures that the dunnage will be provided by the drivers, not the mills, so that drivers can ensure that dunnage is clean and dry. Two, the employer will discuss their clients use a slip-resistant alternative to plastic tarp.

More money could be pumped into culture. The Enderby Arts Council has asked the city to increase its grant from $2,000 to $3,000 in 2016. “They do amazing work in our community,” said Coun. Roxanne Davyduke. However, no decision will be made on a possible grant increase until the city’s budget is approved. Davyduke “There’s a fairly god chance they will get the funding because they’re an excellent group,” said Mayor Greg McCune. The arts council organizes many events, including Music by the River, the Enderby Arts Festival and workshops.

United Way seeks to achieve goal It’s still not too late to help the United Way. The organization will provide 2015 receipts for any donations received by Jan. 31. “We are currently sitting at $222,386 or 89 per cent of our $250,000 goal,” Linda Yule said Linda Yule, executive director. “We do still have some workplaces and hopefully corporate donations still to be reported, but we know it is not going to be $30,000 worth.” The funds raised by United Way assist 32 social service programs in the region. Among the agencies are the Enderby Family Resource Centre,
the First Nations Friendship Centre, the North Okanagan Shuswap Brain Injury Society, the North Okanagan Therapeutic Riding Association, the Upper Room Mission and the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre. “Our applications for funding are starting to come in,” said Yule. “Our community partners are beginning to feel an impact from the downturn in Alberta. Dads are being laid off and coming home. There’s little work to be had and the pressures are being felt by the front line services providers that count on United Way funding. We ask you to support kids and families struggling with food security, individuals with disabilities coping with life’s challenges and isolated seniors wanting to remain in their own homes as long as possible.” For more information or to donate, call 549-1346 or go to unitedwaynocs. com.

Enderby asked to butt out RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Nobody is being forced to butt out in Enderby just yet. The Interior Health Authority has approached the city about establishing a no-smoking initiative, but no quick decisions are being made. “We need to see if there is community support first,” said Coun. Roxanne Davyduke. The IHA project would include determining if there is public support for restricting tobacco use in specified outdoor areas. “We are wanting to replicate the work previously done with the Village of Lumby and formulate a template that we can then roll out to even more communities,” said Tanya Osborne,
IHA community health facilitator. In Lumby, nursing students engaged with elementary and secondary school students. “All of this information was gathered and used to help inform council on the importance of creating a comprehensive tobacco bylaw,” said Osborne. Last year, Lumby banned smoking on the Salmon Trail and within three metres of bus stops, parks, playgrounds, spray park and the pool. Davyduke would not speculate on whether similar rules could occur in Enderby. “Quite a few communities have bylaws in place but we need to understand where our community is with that,” she said.

A great place to live
his year marks 25 years of yours truly living in this magnificent province. I should explain that those years have not been spent in chronological order. I was born in North Vancouver and spent my first year of life in B.C. before my family moved to Montreal and then Toronto. I returned, alone, in 1992 – the call of the mountains and ocean being too much to ignore and the concrete jungle becoming too much to bear. And here I have stayed. My family eventually followed. When living in such an ecologically diverse province as this one, a decision has to be made of where to plant your Kristin Froneman roots: Do you choose urban or rural? Lake or ocean? Rainforest or boreal forest? Valley or mountaintop? It’s a bit of a quandary. It depends on where your interests lie, what your budget can afford, where the jobs are, what kind of life you want to live. The cost of living on the coast can be prohibitive, but the work more plentiful and the shopping, nightlife and culture more diverse. Then again a mountain town can be a prohibitive place to afford, unless you want to cram into one house with 10 ski bums sharing the rent. But then you have fresh air to inhale, powder to shred, rock faces to climb, and trails to hike and bike to your heart’s delight. Or you can choose the quiet life in a sleepy island cove or a small city or town tucked alongside one of B.C.’s many Interior lakes or rivers, or a farm in the plentiful Peace Valley, or a mining/logging town, where the fishing and foraging are not just for weekend retreats. I’ve been lucky to experience most of those scenarios. I’ve lived and visited just about everywhere (OK, except for north of Prince George. Just chop three-quarters off the top) around the Southern Interior and Vancouver Island. I have moved more than a dozen times from the capital of Victoria to the snow covered mountain town of Revelstoke, to the quaint

his letter in response to one titled Climate Change published Jan. 6. Please educate yourself. I write this to the author, the public, myself, and everyone who cares about this world and anyone on it. The author may not have meant to mislead readers by not showing the full picture, and hopefully will welcome some details that the author may not have known. The letter states that Canada’s decision to contribute to international carbon-neutral commitments is based on Al Gore’s theory on human-based greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change. For the record, Al Gore did not create this theory, he just communicated it well in his An Inconvenient Truth film and book. Furthermore, the author points out that “Gore is not a scientist. He is a politician.” This may be true, but the overwhelming majority of scientists who saw the movie or read the book agree that he accurately presented the science. You can see for yourself on the Wikipedia article for An Inconvenient Truth in detail. The author tries to explain that “carbon is not the driver” of temperature changes using the histor-
ic Lake Vostok ice core logs. The author does not go into details of the suspected reasons behind the temperature changes (wikipedia Milankovitch cycles) nor the positive feedback loops those changes create (wikipedia climate change feedback; see carbon cycle feedback). For example, a slight warming of the atmosphere can lead to a slight increase in evaporation, forest fires creating C02, and methane emissions from soil. The increase in greenhouse gases leads to another slight increase in atmospheric temperature, and a positive feedback loop is created. If you had a chance to peek at the charts on Wikipedia that the author mentioned, and you like them, please go to www.ipcc.ch and take a look at the ones published
IN RESPONSE One of the problems with the letters to the editor section is it can take a long time to get a letter in. Thus the effectiveness of replies can sometimes be too long after the initial letter and seem somewhat out-of-sync with the present situation or even misrepresented. To Dean Roosevelt, who has responded to my letter of Dec. 2 in The Morning Star Jan. 10, regarding the mayor's position and progress of the Stickle Road topic, I reply with this letter. Mr. Roosevelt, your letter to the editor is clearly a response aimed at shooting down my position or trying to discredit the importance of it and myself, along with my right to free speech in our democracy, while solely defending our mayor. In your letter, there are also no mentions of the actual topic's details or any suggestions from you on how it should play out as you criticized about mine. It is easy to assume from your response that you are
by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I recommend the summary for policymakers, which I think is very readable for a scientific document. Once again, please educate yourself. Carbon may not be the initial driver in the Vostok log’s major warming cycles, but it is a contributor. Also, there is a major difference between pre-historic levels of CO2 (as well as other greenhouse gases) and those of modern levels: human beings and our actions. The IPCC’s work shows this clearly. I agree with the author that “climate change has been happening long before humans came into existence. Stopping all CO2 emissions would not stop climate change.” What the author does not mention is the difference between natural and anthropogenic (human-
perhaps not familiar completely with the situation and have not been paying attention to the progress of it from the beginning of this fiasco. If you had been, you would have been at the open houses and perhaps in your response would have something substantial to offer. I have been at the open houses, have talked specifically with the ministry representatives at these events and my position is clear. I am appalled at their attitude about this whole thing. I have also had several letters in our paper regarding this issue and as well, I have also started a Facebook page for suggestions, comments, etc. on this subject and yes, it is from the direction of supporting a light at that intersection. What have you done Mr. Roosevelt? You might consider knowing a little more or actually being involved before criticizing in a public periodical. I have lived all of my years here and have seen mayors and councils come and go, and yes it is my

caused) climate change, and that stopping all CO2 emissions would greatly mitigate both the maximum temperature change caused by climate change and many of the disastrous effects of it. For a scientist to earn a PhD, they must have their thoroughly researched and clearly presented work go through a battery of tests from experts in their field. Before a scientist publishes findings in an academic, peer-reviewed journal, their research must go through intense scrutiny. I doubt that the author’s letter would have made it to publishing in an academic journal, but I am glad it made it to this paper’s letters to the editor, where I can provide a post-publishing peer-review. I have been baffled by the behaviour of climate change deniers, who over time have grudgingly accepted that there is climate change, but try to put the blame somewhere else. We are all part of the problem, and we can all be part of the solution. I don’t think it is “ludicrous,” as the author puts it, to put our efforts into reducing C02 emissions. I feel it is irresponsible to ignore the truth. Please educate yourself. Blaine Jones
right to call out or criticize them if I choose, for my tax dollars go to their wages and all other expenses as do all citizens.' As well, it is the people in a town that are the very lifeblood and reason to make things better and all those people deserve to have their best interests properly represented by the politicians representing them. I have spoken with Mr. Mund directly on this issue, thank you very much, and thus do have my facts straight. Seriously, I am glad that you did respond for what greater purpose is there to put a letter in, but to open up dialogue and create interest in our otherwise apathetic society? This issue needs lots of valuable input. I will leave you with this. It is great to get people involved in the issues of the day for that's how good progress is made. Thank you for your interest.

TRANSIT TROUBLE As of Feb. 6, the transit stop at the Village Green Centre food court will move to 48th Avenue because of safety concerns by First Canada, which operates transit. This is definitely not for the bus passengers. It is beyond imagination how the people getting on or off the bus on 48th Avenue will safely get to or from the mall. Even for the physically fit in the best of weather conditions, it will be a challenge. Then there is the rest of us who actually use transit and feel the whole idea is ludicrous. First Canada, please provide the number of accidents that have happened at the mall so we might be able to understand where your safety concerns come from. J. Brown

is advocating the use of electric vehicles and seeking the installation of charging stations for such at both the Township of Spallumcheen and City of Armstrong halls. “My new EV (electric vehicle) will travel 130 kilometres per overnight charge,” said Derbowka to Spallumcheen council. “My maintenance expense is gone. I no longer buy fossil fuels and I find too few places to plug in for a continuance for power ahead except for my own home.” Derbowka is asking both municipalities to consider installing quick-charge units at public visitor parking areas. “This is a lead in the requirement toward a fossil fuel-free economy, led by the Paris COP 21 arrangements,” said Derbowka. “Clean air is a good idea.” Derbowka’s new electric vehicle, he said, runs the equivalent of about 150 miles per gallon of fossil fuel, and believes the average urban dweller drives about 47 miles per day. “I have noticed my EV covers my purpose well even with only the trickle charge, which is supplied by a 12-amp, 120-volt circuit,” he said. “My driving frequency remains unchanged.” The Armstrong Co-op gas bar has a charging station in place. Spallumcheen council deferred Derbowka’s request until staff can research costs on charging stations and other related matter.

Lumby tackles budget RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Lumby officials are getting down to business when it comes to the budget. A committee of the whole meeting will be held Monday to start detailing the 2016 financial plan and a possible 2.3 per cent tax hike. “We haven’t discussed anything yet,” said Coun. Julie Pilon. “I’m hoping it will be under two per cent. Lumby is a small town and with the increased property assessments, that (tax burden) is a concern.” However, Pilon admits infrastructure needs to be upgraded and services provided. “The money has to come from somewhere,” she said. Village targets economy Structure is starting to take shape for Lumby’s economic development activities. Council has adopted an economic development strategy update session report and it will now be referred to participants for review. “We will look at it during the budget process,” said Mayor Kevin Acton, adding that some items within the report require funds being spent. The issue of promoting growth and job creation will also be the focus of an upcoming council committee of the whole meeting. “We really want to develop an action plan,” said Acton.

maintained a steady pace during 2015. Council has received the 2015 annual operations report and highlights. “They are doing a great job,” said Coun. Lori Mindnich. The report indicates that paving was done on Shuswap Avenue and Dyffryn Road, while there was also weed control and upgrades to the public works shop. Preparations were also taken for possible flooding during the spring, with 17,000 sand bags filled by village employees and Ministry of Forests firefighters. “This stock of sand bags was not required with a drier spring and is now in storage under tarps with the hope the bags will not have deteriorated too badly and can be used if required for the next freshet (runoff),” said Dave Manson, public works superintendent, in the report. According to the annual report, there was also considerable work done within the water and sewer utilities.

Bridge by Phillip Alder THE CHRISTMAS DECLARERPLAY PROBLEM In my Christmas competition, you had to plan the play in four hearts after West led the diamond 10. You win with the ace, draw trumps, and lead your remaining diamond. If West plays low, put in dummy’s seven. Then you cannot go down! Suppose East returns a diamond. You discard a spade from hand, cash the spade ace, ruff a spade, return to dummy with a trump, ruff the last spade, and play a club to the jack. You must either get a club trick or benefit from a ruff-and-sluff. If West puts up the diamond eight or nine at trick four, win with
dummy’s king and lead the diamond seven. If East covers, discard a spade. Here, again, you make the contract by eliminating spades and endplaying East in clubs. Or, if East plays a low diamond, you ruff and continue with the spade jack. If West does not cover, you play low from dummy and once more will get home. Or, if West covers with the spade queen or king, you win with the ace and lead back a spade. If East wins that trick, you are safe. At the worst, West takes this trick and shifts to a club. Then you must hope that West has one of the high clubs (as you must if hearts are 3-0). For the second question, giving a bidding sequence
after East opens one diamond, please refer to the diagram (but I accepted anything sensible). In my auction, North’s twodiamond cue-bid shows heart support and at least game-invitational values. The winner will be announced in the column of Saturday, March 19.

Marcus Liefke recorded six steals The Seaton Sonics fell 51-50 to Princess Margaret Mustangs of Penticton in Saturday’s final of the Pleasant Valley Saints junior girls

Princess Margaret, who lost to Charles Bloom Timberwolves Saturday morning, went through to the final via the back-door challenge. The Sonics got 26 points from Northcott and 10 from McLennan as they brushed off Bloom 50-48 in overtime in the semifinals. In preliminary play, the Sonics grounded the Kalamalka Lakers 37-26 with Megan Loland draining 13 points and Northcott sinking a dozen. Northcott flushed 28 points and Loland canned 12 as the Sonics opened with a 51-42 win over the Okanagan Mission Huskies of Kelowna. “This was a total team effort for us this weekend, with every player playing and contributing in every game for us this weekend,” said Folk.

Salzburg used some great speed and unreal puck movement to grab an early 4-0 lead on West Kelowna. Marek Valach opened the scoring just 59 seconds in as his attempt from behind the goal bounced off Warriors’ goaltender Keelen Williams and slid over the line. A beautifully executed two-onone gave Salzburg a 2-0 lead as Valach buried a sweet shot from the right circle. West Kelowna sniper Liam Blackburn was stopped on a penalty shot after Red Bull Salzburg went up 3-0. West Kelowna kept playing the body throughout the game, engaging in some scrums after the whistles, as both teams became feisty in the middle part of the second period Bryan Basilico and Kyle Marino (powerplay) brought the Warriors within five after 40 minutes. Basilico drew an assist on the Marino marker, setting him up with a nifty little pass from below the goal-line. The Warriors outshot Red Bull Salzburg 21-10 in the final frame, and scored the only three goals as Blackburn potted one shorthanded, before Quin Foreman and Tyler Anderson beat Wouter Peeters. “They’re pretty good,” said
Warriors’ play-by-play man Kyle Anderson, a Vernon product. “They surprised us. They were a lot faster and their puck movement caught us off guard. They’ve got some big bodies and we pushed them around and they started getting annoyed. Marino must have thrown 25 hard checks.” Anderson said Curley, who knows the BCHL well, figures Red Bull, given a 20-year-old experienced goalie, would fit somewhere in the middle of the pack if they played regularly in the league. “The players that I have had the opportunity to work with that have come from the BCHL have been not only exceptional players but more importantly exceptional people, leaders on the ice and in the community,” said Curley. “This is the overwhelming sentiment within the NCAA community and is reason why there continues to be such a strong pipeline from the BCHL to the NCAA.” Red Bull went 1-4 against U.S. Hockey League teams in a September tour. Tickets for Monday’s game are $7 adults and $5 for children. The Vipers host the third-place Warriors tonight and visit the Trail Smoke Eaters Saturday night. Vernon is fourth in the Interior Division, two points ahead of the Smokies. The top-four teams advance to the playoffs.

Rebels stretch streak
Morning Star Staff
Butcher Boys Rebels extended their Pee Wee Super League win streak to 13 games with a pair of decisive wins. On Saturday, the Rebels knocked off the North Okanagan Knights 7-1 at Kal Tire Place. The Knights struck first as Josiah Methot converted a rebound, breaking the Rebels’ shutout streak at just over 251 minutes. Kayden Bowering turned the tables with a takeaway inside the North Ok line. Cole Grevatt gained the puck, spun, and dished to Ronan Bedard on the right side, and his hard low shot caught the far corner. Early in the second, Ephren PotterCramer pulled a draw back to Quinn Soon, who darted into Knight territory and let off a bullet shot that rattled iron before finding net. Three minutes later, Bedard and Bowering relayed to Grevatt in front, and he popped the puck over the LISA MAZUREK/MORNING STAR

The Crushers opened against the Kelowna Ice Angels and rallied from an early 2-0 deficit to post an 11-8 win. Lauren Cooke (3+3) and Madison Edgar (2+2) keyed the Vernon comeback. Verity White made some key saves as the Angels battled back. Kennedy Jackson fired in a natural hat trick before Emily Gilman, Devyn Hildebrand and Rory Lang each added goals. The Crushers showed excellent ring control in a 12-0 dismantling of Salmon Arm. Strong defensive play by Lucia Manton and Jackson helped Edgar post a shutout. Ginger Demetrick, playing her first game for the Crushers, provided assists on goals by White and Hildebrand. Gilman and Cooke fired three goals each with Jackson adding two. In the third game, Edgar fired in an early hat trick to get the Crushers off to a great start as they downed the Kelowna Avalanche 6-4. Jackson scored two in the second while Cooke added a single in support of Gilman.

Francks fired up the team by battling through several defenders, and, despite being hooked, flung the ring past the goalie on a delayed penalty. Sierra Fernley followed up with a shorthanded marker. The turning point of the game came with the score even at 3-3, when a penalty shot was awarded to Salmon Arm. With the home crowd behind her, Jordan Tung

Concert supports Vernon food bank Morning Star Staff
Canadian actor Eric Peterson, of Corner Gas fame, stars as Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser in Porte Parole’s production of Seeds. The play takes the stage at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Saturday, Feb. 6.
Play scatters the Seeds of debate Morning Star Staff
As Bob Dylan once famously sang, “the answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind.” That phrase likely holds more meaning to the case of Percy Schmeiser, the Saskatchewan canola farmer who was famously sued by the world’s largest biotech corporation Monsanto when it found evidence of its patented glyphosate tolerant genetic canola in Schmeiser’s seeds. Schmeiser contested, saying the contamination was accidental (blown in by the wind) and that he owned the seed he harvested. A four-year legal battle would ensue. Porte Parole’s theatrical presentation of Seeds, to be presented by the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Feb. 6., is a dramatic re-enactment of that battle between Schmeiser and Monsanto. Written by Annabel Soutar, the play sparks conversation and debate about genetically modified food (GMOS), bio patents and the future of food.
“I’m thrilled to be introducing audiences to playwright Annabel Soutar and her remarkable piece Seeds,” said director Chris Abraham, who is also artistic director at Crow’s Theatre. “When I read it for the first time, I couldn’t put it down. Her dogged pursuit of the truth is entirely gripping, as are her observations of the social and political implications of the paradigm shift in genetics happening under our feet.” With a script taken from court trial transcripts and interviews with Schmeiser, Monsanto representatives, farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists from across Canada, Seeds leads the audience through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific showdowns about GMO food, and property clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry. “I can’t wait for the conversation and debate that will be sparked by this show,” said Abraham.
Co-founded in 2000 by Soutar and actor Alex Ivanovici, Porte Parole is a bilingual Montreal theatre company dedicated to the creation and production of documentary plays about contemporary Canadian stories. Porte Parole has presented seven plays in Montreal and in regional theatres across Quebec. In this February performance in Vernon, Canadian icon Eric Peterson (known for his TV roles on Corner Gas and Street Legal) plays the role of Schmeiser. A journalistic docu-drama, Seeds lets the audience examine all sides of the debate and ultimately make their own decisions. Seeds, the third of five shows in the Performing Arts Centre’s 2015-16 theatre series, takes the stage Saturday, Feb. 6 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $40 for adults, $37 for seniors and $35 for students. Call the Ticket Seller at 250-549-7469 or order online at www.ticketseller.ca
With Christmas tucked away for another year and the cost of food escalating, the need for food banks is higher than ever. On Saturday, Jan. 30, Spinners Sound Centre is holding a free concert and open house at its downtown Vernon location to raise awareness and donations for the Salvation Army food bank. “After Christmas, you can’t forget, People are still in need. We’re downtown, so we see it,” said Spinners store manager Carl St. Jean. The event will feature a performance by local three-piece band Steel Wound on the store’s main floor. The trio, consisting of Paul Fisher on vocals, lead guitars and mandolin, Rod MacDonald on acoustic bass, tuba, and vocals, and Kerry Parks on vocals, guitar, dobro, banjo and harmonica, will present material from their 2014 CD Last Dance at the Starlight Lounge, along with a variety of tunes from the band’s vast and varied repertoire. “Expect insightful originals from songwriter Kerry Parks and the band’s spirited interpretations of obscure old time, jazzy country blues, western swing and jug band standards,” reads a release from the band. “People can come and go upstairs, where we’ll have their CD playing as well,” added St. Jean. Recorded in Vernon and Kelowna, and mixed and mastered by Andrew and Zachary Smith at Lake Studios in Kelowna, Last Dance at the Starlight Lounge’s clean and clear mixes allow the discerning listener to appreciate the precision and frequency response of really high quality audio equipment, reads the release. Steel Wound was born in the thriving coffee house open mic scene in the North Okanagan. Over the past few years, the band has grown and evolved into one of the area’s more active and colourful acts. The food drive concert takes place Jan. 30 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Spinners Sound Centre, 3107 30th Ave., next to Nolan’s Pharmasave. The concert is free with food and beverages in exchange for non-perishable food donations for the Vernon Salvation Army food bank.

Btu: Tightrope Walk
ome familiar musicians with an almost familiar name are back with a deep well of songs called Tightrope Walk. BTU, the initials of Bentall, Taylor and Ulrich, are proving themselves to be generators of sweet songs in the time honoured West Coast folk tradition. Barney Bentall, Tom Taylor and Shari Ulrich are B.C. folk Dean Gordon-Smith and rock stalwarts, which accounts for the familiarity (real or imagined) of the material on their second album, Tightrope Walk. Ulrich’s voice has that suggestion of recognition that’s a testament to her enduring appeal on the scene. Bentall and Taylor both did time rocking in Vancouver and beyond. Their past brings a rock influence into the opening track, Chased by the Devil. The song is filled out by riff breaks that could cozy up to a cranked amp. The urgency of the music adds a touch of mystery and it’s a smart choice for an opening track as it adds an appealing contrast to the rest of the album, which is strong on ballads and folk/country songs.

onym to expose the absurd and unjust charges forced upon him by the House of Un-American Activities Committee to win two Academy Awards he couldn’t claim. We say, “Only in America...” TAYLOR: Here we have yet another film about how Americans can get caught up in a paranoia that ruins peoples lives based solely on their need to have an enemy, real or imaginary. The Russians, if I may generalize as readily, were friends at the end of the Second World War. Communism only became a threat when it was discovered they wanted the same things America did: wealth, power and advanced weaponry, yet chose to achieve these things by way of socialism rather than capitalism.

Bryan Cranston is Dalton Trumbo, a Hollywood screenwriter jailed for being a member of the Communist Party of America. So began the Cold War and almost immediately patriotic yokels decided that the rights provided by their own constitution should be overlooked in the name of protecting America from the evils of communism, something that had no effect on their lives. HOWE: It is tough sometimes to write a review for a movie based
on history, if you don’t know the full ins and outs of it, as in the case of Trumbo. A couple of years ago, we reviewed a movie on Maggie Thatcher. Growing up under her reign, I was able to relate to it. This, on the other hand, was completely alien to me, but I did enjoy the film and the performances. It kept me entertained for
the two-plus hours. I was also a little shocked that the U.S. film guild was able to pull off such a stunt as blacklisting Trumbo and his gang, even to the extent of getting them locked up. Although the performances by the large ensemble cast were very good, David James Elliot and Dean O’Gorman didn’t look
much like The Duke or Kirk Douglas. TAYLOR: I can’t help but notice the parallels in Trumbo with today’s widespread fear of all things Muslim within the similar zeitgeist of the so-called War on Terror. Also, Trumbo reflects how the rights of citizens become secondary to promoting that fear. HOWE: Wait, are you going to talk about the movie? TAYLOR: I thought I was, but it turns out the movie has an amazing cast telling a powerful, maddening story. If someone reading these words goes to see Trumbo for what it is, an exposé of the historic manipulation of fear in America, perhaps that person will also see how it continues today. This is Dalton Trumbo’s legacy. – Taylor gives Trumbo 5 bathtub typewriters out of 5. – Howe gives it 4 script rewrites out of 5.
BTU brings B.C. folk-rock legends together Continued from A27 Another character of Tightrope Walk is revealed when The Wind Don’t Lie chimes in. The track has the hybrid qualities that mark West Coast acoustic music – folk tradition, old country western chord patterns and lilting melody and vocal line. This is also reflected in the mellow ballad Long Lovely Love Affair, which has a James Taylor style reflective rendering rather than a melodramatic display. The trio use their songwriting skills to craft tracks that are rich in layered tones and conversant harmonies. The title track is an example of that and the album is notable for expressive material and inclusive ambiance.
Tom Taylor, Shari Ulrich and Barney Bentall, of BTU, have released new album Tightrope Walk. The group’s solid dynamic carries over from studio to song as their ability to generate material with substance makes Tightrope Walk an easy flowing listen that makes sense.

It’s jazz meets prayer at Peace Katherine MortiMer Morning Star Staff
Since moving to Vernon in November, David Hunter has discovered that he prefers the mild winters of the North Okanagan to the frigid temperatures back in Saskatchewan. But the new pastor at Peace Lutheran Church has also discovered a warm and welcoming community of Christians who love music. And that’s good news for Hunter, an accomplished musician who earned a music degree before beginning his theology studies in 1984. On Sunday, Hunter will share his love of music with a jazz vespers service to celebrate the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. “Arise and Shine” is an ecumenical jazz vespers service which will bring together Vernon congregations to share an evening of prayer. “The way this started is that I had a degree in music and with a specialty in jazz performance and a bit of composition and when I started theology in Saskatoon, I connected with another student who had a music degree,” said Hunter, who began his ministry at Peace Lutheran Nov. 1, after moving from Saskatoon with his wife Margaret and the couple’s 18-year-old son. “We both loved jazz and talked about the possibility of writing a liturgy. We researched other jazz liturgical music and we wrote a mass in the ‘80s, structured after the regular service in our worship book.” Sunday’s jazz liturgy was written by Hunter and Dennis Hendricksen with Epiphany texts and themes of Christian unity in mind. Congregational singing will be led by a jazz quartet of Greg Baturin (drums), Jim Leonard (piano), Chris Harwood-Jones (bass) and Hunter (trumpet). Cantors Candice Lipski and Hunter’s wife, Margaret Hundeby Hunter, will lead the congregation in singing. “I revamped the service, and wrote a couple of new pieces to make it more ecumenically appealing,” said Hunter, adding that the them is ‘Called to proclaim the mighty acts of God,’ inspired by 1 Peter 2:9. “The Week of Christian Unity is such a great opportunity to gather Christians of all
Pastor David Hunter welcomes all to Peace Lutheran Church Sunday at 7 p.m. for the jazz vespers service, in celebration of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. expressions. I wrote it for the week with an emphasis on themes of Christian unity and also for the season of Epiphany, hence the title Arise and Shine.” Hunter said The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an eight-day period of
prayer first established in 1908 after years of searching for ways to strengthen bonds between Christians of all expressions. “Traditionally January 18 to 25 is used, as this period covers the days between the feasts of the Confession of St. Peter and
the Conversion of St. Paul, symbolizing two distinct branches of the early church,” he said. “Since 1968 there has been broad international recognition of this week when Christians can pray for unity. “On the seventh day, the theme is Hospitality for Prayer. Everyone is welcome to join us for this special gathering to sing and pray together with other Christians.” The jazz liturgy is one that has met with growing acceptance among Christians, said Hunter, who will welcome other congregations and worship leaders from other local churches, including those from The Essentialist Church of Christ, Vernon Alliance Church, First Baptist and All Saints Anglican, as well as saxophone player Curtis Kieres from Evangel Tabernacle in Kelowna. “This is an opportunity for us to connect with one another and to get to know each other,” said Hunter. “When I started doing this in the ‘80s, people asked me why am I using the devil’s music in church. It made me feel as though I had a mission to make it work. “My experience over the years is that this music is living, breathing music in that it really speaks to the spirit.” Hunter is a graduate of the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon and was ordained in 1988 in Winnipeg. He served the congregation of Salem Lutheran Church in Pass Lake, Ont. until 1993, when he received the call to Augustana Lutheran Church in Saskatoon, serving there until 2015. The jazz vespers service takes place Sunday at 7 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church, 1204-30th Ave. Everyone is welcome, and a freewill offering will be taken. “What I hope people will take away first of all is just a positive worship experience,” said Hunter. “For me this is very soulful, spiritual music and it’s almost a surprise to me that I’ve been able to successfully merge my love of jazz with Christian worship, which is not something that people necessarily assume would go together.

Coach helps people to get to know their own voice Contributed
Most people have never given much thought to their voice. Whether talking on the phone, delivering a seminar, communicating with their child or spouse, teaching yoga or dance, each situation requires different skills to allow for effortless communication. Huria Schulte encourages people to get to know their own voice. “Everyone has a
voice, your voice is your instrument, your voice is a reflection of you,” said Schulte, who is now offering classes in voice coaching and Linklater Voice Training at the Vernon Community Music School. Through workshops and private lessons,
Schulte introduces skills to enhance presence and to boost effortless performance through self-awareness of habitual patterns which inhibit a free voice. The Linklater Voice Method, also known as Freeing the Natural Voice, is based on a series

of precisely structured exercises. The method releases psychological and physical tensions. As a result clients experience the use of their free voice and true authentic expression. “The Linklater Voice Training emphasizes the unity of body, mind,
soul, imagination and emotion which are not only important tools for performing artists but as human beings,” said Schulte. “I want my clients to explore, grasp and utilize their voice as human instruments in all their facets.” Schulte is offering a

DEVELOPMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN Pest Management Plan: BC Hydro Facilities 2016-2021
The use of pesticides is intended within the area to which the Pest Management Plan (PMP) applies. The purpose of the proposed PMP is to control vegetation at BC Hydro facilities to maintain safe and reliable operations which support the delivery of electricity to our customers. This plan applies to all areas of British Columbia where BC Hydro has operational or planned facilities such as electrical substations, generation switchyards, generating sites, communication sites, storage sites, administrative buildings, or land owned or leased for future facilities. The proposed duration of the PMP is from April 2016 to April 2021. Vegetation incompatible with the operation of the power system will be controlled using: physical (manual brushing, girdling, hand-pulling, hedge trimming, mowing, pruning, weed trimming or tree removal), cultural (gravel/hard surfacing, planting ground cover), biological (release of parasitic insects to control noxious and invasive plants) or chemical (herbicide application) techniques, or any combination of these methods. The active ingredients and trade names of the herbicides proposed for use under this plan include: ○ acetic acid – Ecoclear, Munger’s Hort Vinegar or equivalent, ○ aminocyclopyrachlor and chlorsulfuron – Truvist or equivalent ○ aminocyclopyrachlor and metsulfuron-methyl – Navius or equivalent ○ aminopyralid – Milestone or equivalent ○ aminopyralid and metsulfuron-methyl – ClearView or equivalent ○ aminopyralid, metsulfuron-methyl, and fluroxypyr – Sightline or equivalent ○ aminopyralid, metsulfuron-methyl and triclopyr – Clearview Brush or equivalent ○ Chlorsulfuron – Telar or equivalent ○ Chondrostereum purpureum – Chontrol or equivalent ○ clopyralid – Lontrel, Transline or equivalent or equivalent ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
dicamba – Vanquish, Banvel or equivalent dichlorprop-P and 2,4-D – Estaprop XT or equivalent diflufenzopyr and dicamba – Distinct, Overdrive or equivalent diuron – Karmex, Diurex 80 WDG or equivalent flumioxazin – Payload or equivalent glyphosate – Vantage, Vision or equivalent imazapyr – Arsenal Powerline or equivalent indaziflam – Esplanade or equivalent metsulfuron-methyl – Escort or equivalent picloram – Tordon 22k, Tordon 101 or equivalent picloram and 2,4-D – Aspect or equivalent triclopyr – Garlon products or equivalent Trifluralin – BioBarriere, Treflan or equivalent
○ 2,4-D – LV700 or equivalent Adjuvant products may also be combined on occasion with a herbicide to improve its effectiveness, such as: nonylphenoxy polyethoxy ethanol – Agral 90, paraffinic oils – Gateway, octadec-9-enoic acid as methyl and ethyl esters – Hasten NT, or siloxylated polyether – Xiameter or equivalents. The proposed methods for applying herbicides include: soil applied techniques (backpack sprayer, powerhose or fixed boom sprayer), cut surface, basal bark, backpack foliar, mechanized foliar (fixed nozzle, boom directed nozzle, wick sprayer), and injection (hack and squirt, lance or syringe) techniques. A draft copy of the proposed PMP is available at bchydro.com/pestplanforfacilities. Alternatively, it is available in person at 6911 Southpoint Drive, Burnaby; 1401 Kalamalka Lake Road, Vernon; 18475 128 Street, Surrey; 400 Madsen Road, Nanaimo; 3333 22 Avenue, Prince George. BC Hydro, the applicant for the proposed PMP, is located at 6911 Southpoint Drive, Burnaby, B.C., V3N 4X8. Please contact Tom Wells, Vegetation Program Manager, at 604 516 8943 or email@example.com for more information. A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the pest management plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the above address within 30 days of the publication notice.

Verna Joyce Oakland
Mrs. Verna Joyce Oakland (Mickey to all who knew her), of Vernon, BC, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at the age of 87. Mickey was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on September 30, 1928. After completing high school, Mickey married and had two children, Robert and Kenneth Michalko, She spent her early adult years in Canada’s far north as part of a military family. Mickey moved to the warmer climate of Vancouver in 1960 and it was there that she met the love of her life, Carl Oakland while working at the University Hospital. Mickey and Carl retired to Sechelt, BC, where they spent the next 20 years perfecting Carl’s fishing and Mickey’s cross stitching skills on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. They then moved to Vernon, BC, where Mickey spent her remaining years enjoying family, baking cookies and making homemade jam for any and all to enjoy. Mickey and Carl were avid card players and were known to actually wear out decks on a regular basis. Mickey was a constant in the lives of her family and we will miss her bright smile and generous laughter always. We will carry her determined, yet warm spirit, forward with us as we carry on without our beloved Grandmother. Mickey was predeceased by her husband Carl and sons, Robert (Skip) and Ken Michalko. She was survived by her family, brother Ken (Rita) McKonkey, Christine Andersen, her grandchildren, Lori (Les) Marshall, Kevin (Robyn) Michalko, Sarah Andersen, Stephen Andersen and her great grandchildren Rebecca, Kayden, Tristin and Ethan. The family would like to thank Dr. David Arnold for his skilled and compassionate care over the years, as well as Leah, Kyle and the nursing staff on Unit 2 of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital for their loving and gentle care of Mickey. In accordance with Mickey’s wishes, no funeral will be held and cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Jubilee Hospital in her memory.

Shiggeo Sigi Kuraoka May 11th, 1917 - January 19th, 2016 It is with deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Sigi Kuraoka at the fantastic age of 98 years. He passed peacefully at Vernon Hospice House with his family by his side. Sigi will be lovingly remembered by his children, Robin, Garth (Linda), Tanis (Darcy) and Woody; step-daughter, Jerry; and many nieces and nephews. Sigi was a special Papa to Joe (Cindy, Amanda), Nao (Mark), Becky (Travis), Amanda (Amos), Brandy (Angus), Elisha (Matt), Cohen (Katie), Tyler, Myoka (Matt), Tyler and Janaya (Alain). He was incredibly proud to have thirteen great grandchildren. Sigi made himself a special place in the hearts of many other people during his lifetime. Sigi was predeceased by the love of his life, his wife of 40 years, Belle; his brother, Sam; step-daughters, Sandy and Donna; granddaughter, Michelle; and grandson Denji. Sigi was born in Victoria, B.C. on May 11th, 1917. He lived in an orphanage with his brother until the age of 8, at which time they moved with their father, Denji, to Vernon. As a young man he moved to Lumby where he logged and cooked in camps. With his wife Belle he ran a successful business: Napâ€™s CafĂŠ, then Napâ€™s Laundromat and Dry Cleaning, with a pool hall and arcade. They retired in the early 80â€™s to rural living, where they could often be found in their garden. He was a very content man, with a deep love for his family, friends and pets. He was always up for conversation, and left you with a smile. He was never one to let anyone go hungry, and didnâ€™t have a worry. Many stories have been told over numerous cups of coffee in his lifetime. Please join his family for a celebration of Sigiâ€™s life, to share these stories, at the Whitevalley Community Hall in Lumby on Sunday, January 24th, 2016 at 1:00 P.M. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so many send donations in memory of Sigi to the North Okanagan Hospice Society, 3506 - 27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C.

Two-wheel fans to converge on the big bike show in big numbers By Keith Morgan
A chill maybe in the air but motorcycle riders are already thinking about their first ride of the spring.
Show producer Laurie Paetz says the show’s diversity and massive selection of bikes and line-up of entertainment is what fans keep coming back for.
Honda’s fleet will include the brand new CRFL1000L Africa Twin, described as a blend of advanced technology and multi-terrain durability. Spectators will also see two new full-size models– the Pioneer 1000 and 1000S.
“They really appreciate that there is so much to see – from entertainment and giveaways to classic and newly introduced bike models,” she says.
Harley Davidson Canada is set to introduce its sleek Road Glide Ultra and newly styled Forty-Eight.
The family-friendly event will again feature the latest gear, live demonstrations, motorcycle giveaways, local musical entertainment, and a brand new line-up of 2016 motorcycles, ATVs and scooters as well as the classics,
BMW Motorrad is debuting its 2016 S1000XR and showing its modified F700GS and F800GS models.
And this weekend they have a golden opportunity to dream a little more about the joys of the open road at the Vancouver Motorcycle Show, which runs for three days at the Tradex Exhibition Centre in Abbotsford.
New to the show this year, is Indian Motorcycle, which will introduce its middleweight cruiser the Scout ABS, the Roadmaster and the Chief Dark Horse.
The familyfriendly event will again feature the latest gear, live demonstrations, motorcycle giveaways, local musical entertainment, and a brand new line-up of 2016 motorcycles.
Triumph has introduced the next generation of Bonneville with five new motorcycles. Kawasaki promises to up the wow factor with its Ninja ZX-14R bike, which features advanced electronics, an innovative frame
and ultra-powerful 1,441cc inline four-cylinder engine. Yamaha is bringing out its Y2450F model, which has a modified engine and launch control system for those riders who need faster starts. Riders looking for suburban commuter comfort should check out Yamaha’s BWs 125.
The name Ducati may be synonymous with speed but the brand has joined the cruiser world with its bike the X Diavel. Ducati is also featuring its new Multistrada 1200 Enduro, equipped with adapting power and suspension as well as ABS and traction control that ensures the operator can tackle any kind of terrain.
BRP is also rolling out its cruiser line with additions of the F3-T and F3 Limited models to its existing F3, F3-S Special Series vehicles in the Can-Am Spyder F3 line-up. Suzuki has plans to display its newest retro cruiser, the TU250X. For those looking to find a crossover bike, Victory rolls out its 2016 Cross Country
8-Ball, featuring creature comforts such as spacious lockable saddlebags and a sound system that can dispel wind and engine rumble. KTM is bringing the new Freeride 250R to the show – a bike that reportedly bridges the gap between a full-size enduro and trials. Finally, Italian manufacturer Piaggio is featuring its Fly 50, a light and easy-tohandle bike.
800 Street Twin provided by Triumph Motorcycles and valued at $12,000. SHOW HOURS Friday: 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. Saturday: 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Sunday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Ticket info: http://www. vancouvermotorcycleshow.ca/
