Crash claims brothers

INTO THE GROOVE

ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR

Melody Fagerlund, five, feels the beat during the Cod Gone Wild performance Sunday at the 111th Interior Provincial Exhibition and Stampede in Armstrong. See A3 for a story on the recordsetting fair.

Lumby’s agricultural community is still trying to come to grips with a stunning plane accident Sunday that killed two brothers from a close-knit farming family. Pilot Thomas (Pete) Huwer, 53, and his brother, Joseph (Joe), 45, were killed Sunday when the homebuilt plane they were flying crashed in the family farm field near Mabel Lake shortly after 3 p.m. “They were two community members who were very strong agriculturally, Pete in hogs and Joe in cattle,” said Rick Fairbairn, regional district rural Lumby director who knew both Huwers. “It’s quite an agricultural community they had. Very strong, very close-knit. They were the backbone of that community in the valley, community-minded people that were leaders and looked up to by a lot of the community members.” Lumby RCMP received a call at 3:15 p.m. Sunday that a small plane had crashed shortly after taking off from a farmer’s field outside of Lumby. Family members were reportedly watching and videotaping the plane as it took off, and then attempted to return to the landing strip on two occasions. “The information we have is that the brothers were up looking for lost cattle, as they had done previously with this aircraft,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “I’m told they took off, made two passes of the field where they took off from. On the third one, the aircraft seemed to shake and plunged into the ground.” Molendyk said information in the police file on the crash indicates the aircraft was only in the air for five-to-10 minutes. The aircraft burst into flames upon impact. Lumby Fire Department was dispatched to the scene, but state the fire was out when they arrived. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. The weather at the time was windy, but Molendyk said it’s too early in the investigation to say if weather played a factor in the crash. Lumby Mayor Kevin Acton said Tuesday the community was in shock. “It’s very sad, everybody’s talking about it,” said Acton. The RCMP, coroner’s office and Transportation Safety Board continue to investigate the crash. Police will look at the video footage shot by the family and forward it to the TSB.

News IPE one for the record books RICHARD ROLKE

With so many people on site over the five days, trying to find places for their vehicles became a challenge for organizers and volunteers. “We need to look at how to increase the parking and make things flow,� said Burns, who is now preparing for the 112th annual IPE. “I am already making notes for things to do in 2011.� The price structure for admission, the rodeo and midway rides will also be investigated. “We will look at different combinations to help people so they can buy tickets early,� said Burns. Shirley Fowler, IPE president, has declared this year’s fair an overwhelming success. “It exceeded my hopes,� she said, adding that the number of complaints from patrons appears to be down. “Usually there are a few e-mails of concern from people and there’s only one so far. That tells me the 12 months of planning and the army of volunteers were outstanding,� said Fowler. Fowler has significant praise for everyone who volunteered behind the scenes. “Our fair is reliant on people who give up their lives during the fair,� she said. “If we had to pay everyone, we wouldn’t have a bottom line any where near black. They are the backbone of the fair.�

Attendance records at the Interior Provincial Exhibition have been ground into the dust. When the gates closed Sunday, 159,734 people had taken in the sights and sounds over the five days of the 111th annual Armstrong fair. “We are absolutely thrilled,� said Bryan Burns, general manager. That far surpasses the 146,391 fair-goers of last year and the previous record of 151,324 in 2008. Shirley Fowler The biggest day this year was Saturday — with 51,508 people making their way through the grounds. Burns believes the upswing in spectators is partly a result of a federal government grant that bolstered the IPE’s marketing campaign. “We did a lot more media and billboards,� he said. “We did stuff in Vancouver, Alberta and Washington State.� Another possible reason for the influx of people is the fact that the IPE hosted the Wrangler Canadian Rodeo Tour Finals this year. “On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the rodeo was absolutely packed,� said Burns, adding that the mini-chuckwagon races also grew a huge crowd. “On Saturday, there were 3,500 to 4,000 people watching them.� But Burns is convinced that the primary thrust behind the recordbreaking attendance is a continued public interest in all things agriculture. “A lot of the urban fairs continue to lose the agricultural part and ours is still increasing,� he said. A steady flow of people made their way through the barns, looking at the cattle, horses, sheep, pigs

Weapons used during Vernon crime wave ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Citizens On Patrol group is being praised for helping nab a pair of robbery suspects. RCMP responded to three separate robberies Saturday evening and, in each case, a weapon was produced. The spree began at People’s Store in the 3700 block of 27th Street at 5:34 p.m. Nearly three hours later, police were called to a robbery at the Village Market in the 1900 block of 32nd Street at 8:13 p.m.

Blaze destroys residence RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

It’s still not known what led fire to destroy a Lumby area home. Firefighters were called out to the 2200 block of Rawlings Lake Road, near Highway 6, Saturday just after 10 p.m. “When the crews got there, it was fully engulfed,” said fire chief Tony Clayton of the residence which consisted of a holiday trailer and an addition. “They protected the surroundings and put water on it but it was too far gone to save anything of value.” Among the challenges for the nine firefighters were small canisters venting propane and the lack of water in the rural area. “We had to tanker the water in,” said Clayton. As of The Morning Star’s press time, a cause for the fire had not been pinpointed. “It’s not appearing suspicious but at this point it’s undetermined,” said Clayton. Because rural Lumby does not have a formal fire investigation function, the case is in the hands of the RCMP detachment. No one was home at the time of the blaze, but the occupant had insurance. “Emergency Social Services was called in to provide assistance to them,” said Clayton.

“A description of the suspect vehicle was put out and heard by two members.” — Gord Molendyk Less than 15 minutes later, Relic’s Lake Side Store in the 7800 block of Okanagan Landing Road was hit. “A description of the suspect vehicle was

put out and heard by two members of our Citizens On Patrol group, who started keeping an eye out for the vehicle,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk.

“The two members located the vehicle at the 7-Eleven on 39th Avenue and 32nd Street.” Police were called and two suspects, a man and a woman, were arrested in a Honda car that had been reported stolen out of the Kamloops area earlier in the day. The man, 35, from Kamloops, and the woman, 23, from Vernon, were taken into custody. The pair were expected to face armed robbery and possession of stolen property charges in Vernon Provincial Court Tuesday.

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. But why? Do you really know what makes an apple so special? Why is it that we never hear an orange or a banana a day keeps the doctor away? Apples have properties that no other fruits have and its benefits have been proven overtime. They are high in vitamin C and heart disease and cancer fighting anti-oxidants, and they are low in calories and help lower cholesterol and prevent tooth decay. Apples are loaded with all this health and goodness and the best part? They taste great and they’re grown right here in BC!!

Excellence in Sustainable Building Certificate

Phone scam continues

We are seeking your input! Okanagan College, Continuing Studies, seeks community feedback on a new proposed certificate on sustainable building. This program applies green building concepts to residential, industrial and commercial construction.

Morning Star Staff

Publicity in North Okanagan media outlets over the infamous Grandparent Scam helped prevent an elderly woman from falling prey to the scam. How the scam works is an individual will call the home of a senior, pretending to be their grandchild, or knowing the grandchild, state they are in trouble and need money wired for help. Last week, a woman received such a call from someone saying her grandson needed help. “Because of the publicity we’ve put on in the media about the scam, the woman said to the caller, ‘no, I think it’s a scam,’ and the caller quickly hung up,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. The woman reported the call to the RCMP, who followed up on it, but the number came back to police as one that would not receive a call. Police are advising people that scam artists are out there working, and have highlighted another local incident as a warning to the public. Molendyk said another elderly person received a knock on her door from an individual who identified himself as being with an alarm company. He stated he wanted to come inside the home to check

“The woman said to the caller, ‘no.’” — Gord Molendyk and see if the alarm was working. “The woman had not called the alarm company, and there is no indication the alarm company sent someone out, that’s what’s concerning in this case,” said Molendyk. The man was allowed into the home where he stayed for “just a bit,” then left. It’s believed he did not take anything from the home. “People can be vulnerable inside their homes or he could have been casing the home,” said Molendyk, reminding people to not allow individuals into their home unless they’ve specifically called. “It’s one of the top-10 scams cautioned by the Better Business Bureau,” said Molendyk. “People show up at a home saying they’re with an alarm company or wanting to do repairs on the house. It’s a rip-off that happens, predominantly with seniors.”

The record-crowd for the Interior Provincial Exhibition caused few concerns for police. RCMP report little problems in dealing with the IPE, which drew a record attendance of 159,734 people for the five days. “The majority of people were very wellbehaved and appeared to enjoy themselves immensely,” said RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “Our officers were saying, for the most part, the fair went really well. We had lots of coverage for dealing with the crowds, and everybody seemed to have a great time.” The busiest night during the fair for police was Saturday, with RCMP arresting between 10 and 15 people, mainly for alcohol violations. “The arrests were in relation to alcohol and made both on the grounds and at local

liquor establishments who are open into the early hours of the morning,” said Molendyk.

Looking for a way out

I

t was just the out the North Okanagan Regional District was hoping for. Very few around the table are particularly interested in finding a site for an equestrian centre but the directors feel painted into a corner after giving the Okanagan Equestrian Society the boot from Kin Race Track. That’s why they agreed to fund the creation of a terms of reference for a feasibility study. The $8,000 forked out was peanuts and it gave the impression that NORD directors are cooperative while not committing them to future expenditures. But given that NORD wants to use Kin Race Track for a sports complex and doesn’t want to bankroll a new racing Richard Rolke facility, it was eventually going to have to say no to any future involvement in the process. And the silver bullet miraculously appeared within the terms of reference drafted by Gary Bannerman, a consultant. In his document, Bannerman points out that two major challenges in developing an equine centre are finding a large enough tract of land — about 100 acres — and a source of revenue — specifically gambling. So instead of moving to the next stage and spending $55,000 on a feasibility study, NORD directors are going to approach the Agricultural Land Commission and the B.C. Lottery Corporation to see if those agencies are even open to discussing the concept of an equine centre. Obviously it makes sense to hold off on handing out taxpayers’ dollars if the investment is on shaky ground, but another reason driving

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

the delay is the hope that one or both of the agencies will say no — letting the regional district off the hook. And the prospect of that occurring is very really given that the Agricultural Land Commission is generally reluctant to sanction non-farm activities in the Agricultural Land Reserve. In this case, such uses could include slot machines, teletheatre betting, a lounge and a concert stage. Even the anticipated farm uses — a veterinary hospital, barns, and a track — could raise concerns if they are placed in a setting that is largely rural like Spallumcheen. How would an influx of vehicles and people impact the ability of existing farmers to operate? Would the extension of water and sewer services lead to other non-agricultural development taking place? As for the B.C. Lottery Corporation, officials there may wonder what a new gaming centre would do to revenue at the existing casino in Vernon? Would the arrival of competition in such a small area go against any commitments between the bureaucracy and Lake City Casino? But when you consider that the provincial government’s desperate need for cash takes precedent when establishing gaming policies, anything is possible. All eyes will now be on the ALC and the BCLC, and some administrators and politicians at NORD will have their fingers and toes crossed that an equestrian centre is given the kiss of death. And that way they will be able to say they tried everything possible to promote horse racing in the North Okanagan, that the big, bad bureaucracy of Victoria is to blame and the eviction notice for Kin Race Track is still in force.

Auditor-General John Doyle thinks school districts are too careful with how they handle their money. Doyle said that school districts have too much money in their bank accounts at times — like in the summer when payroll costs are down and school boards have to save part of their regular disbursements for September, when teachers come back to work. That money wasn’t lying idle — districts regularly invested their temporary overages and collected the interest. That’s not good enough for Doyle, who says districts were passing up chances to get a better return from that cash, being more concerned about potential investment losses. We would suggest that is how it should be. The budget disbursements school boards receive is ultimately intended to pay for the education of students. With provincial funding cuts, there isn’t much money left over in any district budget to play with — certainly not enough to take a chance on losing any. But in a report prepared earlier this year by Doyle’s office, the auditor-general said the province could do a better job taking that money as a whole and investing it — not to mention collecting the interest for provincial coffers instead. What this amounts to is that the provincial government has found a new way to take money away from the province’s already cash-strapped school districts. And this time, they have an official recommendation from the auditor-general to follow this new path. To be sure, it is possible — though we think unlikely — that the province will reinvest that potential additional revenue directly in education. — Penticton Western News

Incinerator proposal defended

I

feel I need to speak out in defence of my re-zoning application, to install an incinerator on my property in order to deal with the SRM (suspect risk material) component of my slaughter facility. 1) The group of concerned citizens is confusing domestic garbage incineration with slaughter waste incineration. There is no heavy metals generated with the incineration process of animal waste. I will not be causing any birth defects in babies or cancers in children or terminal cancers in adults as they have claimed. At present production levels, I will be running the incinerator one eight-hour day per month. 2) The group does not have 60 per cent support of the people in the valley against my project. Anyone can sign a petition, just like many tourists have done. 3) This is not a meat waste “trial” incinerator. It is a fully operational, fully approved “state-of-the-art unit” coming from England which has EU certification and meets or exceeds all requirements of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Ministry of Agriculture, and the Ministry of Environment. 4) This unit will not sit on the banks of Shuswap River. The farm is located beside the river, not the unit. 5) I am not going to be accepting whole animal carcasses from off my property to incinerate. 6) The ash, which is a byproduct of this incineration process, is not full of toxins and BSE (bovine spongiform SKYDIVERS It was with sadness when I read that the sky diving club will be forced to move away from the airport. I have lived in the Landing by the airport for over 30 years and the colourful parachutes slowly floating down have been very enjoyable spectacle to watch. The occasional hoot and holler from the excited participants is also fun. I hope the skydiving club is being moved for legitimate expansion of the airport and not "future need." We already have enough white elephant projects around Vernon to service "future need" so lets not destroy a positive of the true Vernon lifestyle for a possible "future need." Bruce Bernhardt TAX GRAB I personally am finding issues with B.C.'s new boating laws. As I see it people with years of

encephalopathy) and is not dangerous to people. The CFIA and an independent laboratory have tested the ash. All the 13 components of the waste are inert. You can read this 39-page report on the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture website. The incinerator burns at 1320 degrees Celsius. I have followed all the requirements of the various ministries involved in approving this unit. The last requirement is to get a rezoning approval by the North Okanagan Regional District to allow this unit to be place on my property.

experience are being forced to buy a boating license that has almost zero to do with non-tidal waters and if anyone checks it appears B.C. is having record deaths on water. So how has this silly tax license helped? It's another Canada tax grab. Show me any facts that this new $50 per head license has helped. Keith Williment BEAVER DAM WATER We have been residents in Coldstream for 15 years, enjoying rural living at its best until July 8, 2010. Unaware to us as we were on holiday, the North Okanagan Regional District has changed our water system from Kal lake water source to the beaver dam water source of Duteau Creek. Did they notify the residents affected? No, they placed one notice in the paper. We were away at this time only

to come home to slimy toilets, yellow water and the smell of chlorine in our home. We now feel that our paid mayor and councillors have let us down. They have devalued our home and the homes of other residents that are affected in the change over. Who is going to pay for the bottled water to drink and the damage to our spas and hot water tanks, not our council you can be sure of that. It is possible that the new subdivisions are getting our water thus causing the pump house at Kal lake intake to be over worked? Coldstream stand up and say something before they take more away from us. M. Duncan WELSH THANK YOU The Vernon Welsh Society would like to thank the community for supporting the concert

I am looking for a local solution for our slaughter waste problem. Right now it is being trucked to Calgary, where it is incinerated at a total cost of 16 cents a pound. This is crushing this part of the agriculture industry to the point that if we do not find a cheaper local solution, it will no longer be a viable industry that was once thriving in this province to produce local meat. The group has stated that incineration is old technology. Why is it then that the Metro Vancouver committee endorses burning garbage, and is looking into expanding incineration with a proposed $470 million incineration plant, capable of burning 500,000 tonnes per year? This is excluding their present Burnaby incineration plant. There is a romantic notion of living in the country in an idealistic setting where they see cows and sheep grazing on green pastures and chickens clucking happily in the barn yard. Farms generate smell and noise from time to time, like when they spread manure, and harvest their crops. That’s what farmers' do. I think it’s high time that we support the farming community so they can put food on our tables and in our stores and be able to make a living at what they do. If people have any questions, I am more than willing to answer their questions about this project. Richard Yntema, Valley Wide Meats

given by the Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir at the Performing Arts Centre on Aug. 5. They were in fine voice and we are sure everyone enjoyed the evening. The society appreciates the support of the public which will enable them with the profits from the concert to increase the amount of the annual music scholarship given to a worthy local student. The people of Vernon have always supported the choirs we have brought to the community over the years. Thank you. The society would like to thank all the people and businesses for their help with getting the word out and helping us with the promotion of the concert. A special thank you to the staff of the Performing Arts Centre and the Ticketseller. Also a big thank you to The Morning Star for their help with their article. Les Parsons, Vernon Welsh Society

Iron Chef proves popular

100% BC OWNED & OPERATED

Morning Star Staff

A new addition to the Interior Provincial Exhibition menu was a huge success. The 100 Mile Diet Iron Chef Competition took place during the five days of the Armstrong fair, with eight adult teams and two youth teams competing. “The two youth teams were from the foods program at Clarence Fulton Secondary in Vernon and the culinary arts program at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops,” said Andrea Gunner, one of the organizers of the inaugural event. ‘The Clarence Fulton team narrowly beat out the TRU team in both the warm-up round and the finals.” The eight adult teams competing in the elimination rounds were: Dorchester Retirement Residence in Kelowna, Gumtree Catering of Vernon, Le Plateau Bistro of Kelowna, Conscientious Catering of Kamloops, Foods Alive of Grindrod, Bonfire Restaurant and Bar of Westbank, Mandy’s Fusion of Armstrong and At Your Service Catering of Kamloops. “Dorchester Retirement Residence, Conscientious Catering, Bonfire Restaurant and Bar and At Your Service Catering went on to the semi-finals on Saturday,” said Gunner. “The teams needed to prepare five dishes for the four judges in one hour, all incorporating fennel. Other ingredients they incorporated were Okanagan Spirits blueberry liqueur, Maple Leaf Spices exotic African rub, choke

AAA CARPET CARE

News

Fetal alcohol disorder highlighted The Interior Health Authority is partnering with community organizations to raise awareness about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. International FASD Awareness Day is Thursday. FASD is a term used to describe the range of harms caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol that may include physical, mental, behavioural and/or learning disabilities. The effects, ranging from mild and hardly recognizable to severe, last a lifetime. “The good news is that FASD can be prevented,” said Patty Hallam, prevention services program consultant. “We all have an important role to play in encouraging and supporting pregnant women to avoid alcohol during pregnancy and we can start by becoming more informed.” It is estimated that nine in every 1,000 babies are born with FASD. This means that more than 3,000 babies are born in Canada each year with FASD and many Canadians are living with the effects. As individuals with FASD often need lifelong support and direction, many parents – birth, foster and adoptive – are dedicating their lives to help individuals with FASD cope with the demands of daily life. Health, social, educational and justice system services are also involved, on the community and

provincial levels. Community members are encouraged to get involved by attend-

ing the FASD Awareness Walk in Vernon. It will take place Thursday at 9 a.m. and

participants should meet at the NONA Child Development Centre, 2802 34th St.

Q: A:

What is radon gas and should I worry about it in my home Radon gas is a naturally occurring substance that can be found in virtually all areas of BC. It is produced by the breakdown of radioactive minerals deep in the

earth. Normally, radon dissipates into the air and is harmless but, because it is heaving than air, it can concentrate in enclosed living spaces and turn deadly. The W.H.O. recognizes radon gas as the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer worldwide, trailing only cigarette smoking. Tests have shown that living in certain houses can be as dangerous as smoking 150 packs of cigarettes a day. There is only a small chance that any given home will have high levels of radon present, but I always recommend having your home tested, just in case.

Q: A:

What is Marketing?

Marketing is the process of identifying your target customer and determining how to effectively reach them. There is a difference when it comes to marketing “business-to-businessâ€? versus “business-to-consumerâ€? as the buying process is different. A marketing plan speciďŹ cally outlines who the business is targeting (often there is a primary and secondary target customer demographic) and the process of attracting them through various mediums based on how the targeted market makes buying decisions (which usually is based on emotion or logic). Effective marketing plans also include a competitive analysis and review of a company’s internal strengths and weaknesses as well as external threats and opportunities. Call or email me today to ďŹ nd out more about a marketing plan for your business. benfrank@telus.net

What is a CREDIT SCORE, and why is this number important to me?

Great question, your credit score is one of your most important assets, having good credit means you should have more options. Your credit score is a judgement about your ďŹ nancial health, at a speciďŹ c time. It indicates the risk you represent to lenders, compared with other consumers. The credit reporting agencies use a scale from 300-900, the higher your score, the lower the risk for the lender. Factors that inuence your credit score. - Your Payment history - Any collection or bankruptcy recorded against you - Your outstanding debts - Your account history - The number of recent inquires made about your credit report. - The type of credit you are using These factors all have a different weight in determining your credit score. Call me today for a FREE personal credit analysis and credit boosting consultation.

Heather Wiseman CertiďŹ ed Personal Trainer

Vibrating Platforms are the latest trend among international celebrities and their trainers. Will they work for me too?

Yes, they’re super effective, easy & fun!!! After all, the rich & famous‌..even Madonna‌swear by them to stay lean & ďŹ t. And the results are astounding for everyone‌from elite athletes to seniors. 10 minutes is as good as 1 hour on a treadmill or weight training, and if you add exercises to it, it’s even better! We’ve been very successful with our 30 minute shaking classes. I am no longer surprised when I see changes of up to three inches in the waist in a month. Will Vibrating work for you too? You owe it to yourself to give it a shake.

Q: A:

Why use a Travel Professional ? We get asked quite often by potential clients why they should book their travel with us versus an online booking company.

Well my answers are quite simple. We are a 1 Stop Shopping Experience. If you book through a travel agent all you have to do is make 1 call, we have the resources at our ďŹ ngertips to assist with all your travel needs. Look to us to provide the best overall solution to your individual travel needs. Ask us tons of questions, we’ll provide you with the answers. This includes travel dates, location of accommodation or stateroom, quality of accommodations, cancellation policies, recreational facilities. Saving money isn’t just about price. It’s more about value. If the hotel was not the right location, if the cruise line was not the right cruise line, if the golf course was not the right golf course, it doesn’t matter how much you saved. One can save a ton of money and be miserable or spend a little more to be in heaven. A travel professional can recommend relevant offerings and provide cost saving ideas. Nobody wants to pay more than necessary, so an agent will help you ďŹ nd the best value without the sacriďŹ ces of a cheap trip. Our agents know what it takes to coordinate a great vacation that is the best value for you.

Q: A:

Should I shop for furniture online? How do I know I’m getting a good deal?

The internet is a great tool for gathering ideas. Furniture is a “touchy, feelyâ€? industry and it’s not practical to purchase a sofa online for example it may look nice but it may not be comfortable. Use the internet to see what’s out there, and then take the time to shop around. To shop locally gives you an edge of a more personal service to see and test out the products. Shop with reputable companies, know what you are looking for, and if you have questions, there are sales professionals to guide you through the process. Most importantly, remember, the best deals are not always where prices are slashed and ‘free items with purchase’ are given. Take time to SHOP and COMPARE to ďŹ nd the best value. You’ll be glad you did!

Q: A:

What is an RESP and when should I start one?

An RESP is a savings plan that helps you save early for a child’s education. It is registered by the Government of Canada and allows savings to grow tax-free with the possibility of gaining additional government money through the Canada Education Savings Grant (a grant from the Government provided to qualiďŹ ed individuals) and the Canada Learning Bond (a government bond that encourages individuals to start saving for a child’s post-secondary education as soon as possible. This bond allows your child to get $500 NOW, and an extra $100 each year up to the age of 15. That’s up to $2000(plus interest)! Call or email me today to help you maximize your child’s education savings plan!

Man faces trafficking charge

RIDE ENTHUSIASTS

Morning Star Staff

One man is facing trafficking charges following a bust at a West Vernon home. Vernon RCMP’s community response unit executed a search warrant in the 3900 block of 27th Avenue Sept. 1, and confiscated a quantity of marijuana and trafficking-related equipment.

Three people were arrested in the home at the time, but only a 22-year-old man is facing trafficking-related charges in connection with the incident. The man was taken into custody, and later released on a promise to appear in Vernon Provincial Court in late October.

Priest talks of protecting children Morning Star Staff

A priest who has tackled issues surrounding clergy sexual abuse will be bringing his message to Vernon. Father Thomas Doyle will take part in the Loran Lecture Series Sept. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. In 1985, he co-authored the

now-famous Doyle/ Mouton Report, in which he warned American Catholic bishops of the scope of clergy sexual abuse. To date, Doyle has testified in more than 500 cases regarding the legal liability of

He made a special trip from Vancouver to sit for a series of interviews to respond to them, and to make some embarrassing admissions. Yes, Hansen would have got the 11-page briefing note on the Ontario HST deal from his ministry’s senior staff nearly two months before the election. He doesn’t remember it.

Season opens with blues harpist DVOIRA YANOVSKY Vernon Jazz Society

Summer might be over, but the new Vernon Jazz Club season has just begun, beginning with the wailing notes of blues harpist Richie Pollack and Someone Else’s Kids Saturday. Pollack is known for his outstanding harmonica chops, great vocals, and energetic personality. Fronting bands for the last 20 years, he has played with some of the world’s top musicians such as Charlie Wood, Billy Branch, Amos Garrett and legendary drummer Shawn Powell. Saskatchewan’s “cross-harp ambassador,” Pollack challenges the stereotype of the blues harmonica, playing several styles of music in performance. “My style is more of a hybrid of styles. I am a big fan of most music from New Orleans that roots itself in that recognizable funky groove,” he said. Tracks on his 2006 CD Stew, “show elements of jazz and even some world beat African, while all the while keeping some roots in the blues.” Pollack got his first harmonica for a Christmas present when he was a kid. But his passion for the harmonica really took off after receiving a rare live Paul Butterfield record a few years later. “I guess it was the Butterfield record that really made me want to figure out the instrument. Blues music would have to be my first influence overall. It was artists like Butterfield, Sugar Blue, and even John Popper who, as harmonica players, really pushed things to the edge in new and innovative ways.” Pollack’s talents have been lauded by audiences and critics alike. He was the Calgary Blues Music Association’s Harmonic Player of the Year for the past three years and his CD Stew was nominated for the Western Canadian Music Award’s 2006 Outstanding Blues Recording. With a move to the country, Pollack has found a brand new source of inspiration. “The hours of raising ‘free range kids,’ learning a thing or two from the older farmers, and listening to stories of generations past and present from the local barber are all beginning to sift into what I hope to be my next recording project,” he said. Joining Pollack is Dan Silljer on guitar, Mike Thompson on drums and Shawn Patton on bass. Silljer has an impressive resume that includes hours of studio time and miles of roadwork with artists like Serena Ryder and Jason Plumb. He has performed at numerous Guitarmania festivals in

Alberta and is a first call session and live player in the province, touring Canada, the U.S. and abroad. Born in Regina, Thompson started playing drums at 11 and by age 15 was playing gigs around town with many talented musicians. Somewhat of a workaholic, Thompson has toured extensively with artists like Serena Ryder, Brad Johner, Jason Plumb, “Big” Bill Morganfield and blues legend Bo Diddley. With 20 years experience, Patton is no stranger to the music scene. He began playing and touring in the hard rock scene on the West Coast. As he became more in demand for both live and

studio work, Patton branched out into R&B, blues, and jazz. Richie Pollack and Someone Else’s Kids open the Vernon Jazz Society’s fall season Saturday at the Vernon Jazz Club, located at 3000 31st St. (upstairs from Nolan’s Pharmasave, downtown.) Doors open at 7:15 p.m. with music at 8 p.m. Individual tickets are $20 for non-members and $15 for Vernon Jazz Society members, available in advance (cash only) at the Bean Scene and Bean to Cup coffee houses. Season’s passes are also available to VJS members, and memberships ($25) can be purchased at the club on the night of performances. For more information visit www.vernonjazzclub.ca.

Catch kids’ favourite cat and mouse at Village Green Mall Morning Star Staff

Young children and their parents or caregivers are welcome to catch one of four installments of the free 30-minute performance.

Based on the highly popular Toupie and Binou books by Quebec author-illustrator Dominique Joli, Toopy and Binoo, the animated show for children ages two to six, follows two inseparable and unlikely friends –– a mouse and a cat –– and their imaginary world, which is filled with fun adventures, emotion and humour.

Previous tours have included Barney, Thomas & Friends, Bob the Builder, Fifi and the Flowertots and The Big Comfy Couch. The tours have consistently drawn an overwhelming response from Canadian families and capacity audiences are expect-

ed again. The tour also features an opportunity for young children to play and create with Play-Doh products before the show. Other fun activities include complimentary giveaways for the kids, courtesy of Hasbro, Koba and Canadian Family Magazine.

Grist mills out new CD and tour Black Press

Maple Ridge songstress Hilary Grist is no run-of-the-mill pop star. Combining the funky sounds of a vintage Wurlitzer organ to fiddles and a marching band, the artist mixes it up on her latest album, Imaginings. “I guess I get bored really easily,” she recently told The Maple Ridge News of her inclination to dabble in a variety of styles, from jazz and pop to country, folk and cabaret. “It seemed like a fun exploration.” About to visit the North Okanagan with a show at Lorenzo’s Café Friday, Grist will showcase her songwriting from her third album, Imaginings. She began writing the 12-song opus more than two years ago on piano, but soon recruited her musicallyinclined friends, some of Vancouver’s finest musicians, to give the album its unique edge. Guests include steel guitarist Tim Tweedale (Headwater), the Too Big To Care Marching Band, guitarist Dave Sikula (a Juno nominee with The Inhabitants), fiddlers Meredith Bates (Annie Lou) and Linda Bull (Plough), and backing vocalists Dawn Pemberton (Universal Gospel Choir) and members of the Parlour Steps.

Singer-songwriter-pianist Hilary Grist performs songs from her new album, Imaginings, at Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Friday. wrote the string arrangements. “I think the album reflects the friends I have,” said Grist. “I’ve managed to wrestle most of my closest friends to do something on it. Even people who didn’t play an instrument were recruited. I got them to sing in a choir on the album. It’s a taste of different projects from Vancouver, in one place.” Imaginings also reflects Grist’s musical journey –– one that’s seen her love jazz and

hate it, listening solely to country and then being fixated by folk. “Maybe I just didn’t want to decide on making one kind of record,” said Grist. “I love being in the studio. It’s right where you are making decisions and you can see them come to life so quickly. You can experiment as well. It was nice to be able to try something in one direction and change it.” A graduate of Capilano University’s well-regarded jazz studies program, Grist, who

was born in Quesnel and raised in Maple Ridge, has released two live-offthe-floor solo albums and toured Canada to support them. Her songs have been in high rotation and charted in the Top 30 on campus radio stations from coast to coast and have also been featured on many CBC radio programs and local CD compilations. Grist takes the stage at Lorenzo’s, 901 EnderbyMabel Lake Rd., Friday. Call 250-838-6700 for reservations/more info.

**PASS RESTRICTED FOCUS FEATURES

Annette Bening, left, Julianne Moore, Josh Hutcherson, Mia Wasikowska and Mark Ruffalo star in The Kids Are All Right, which opens the Vernon Film Society’s fall season at the Towne Cinema Monday.

Family is focus of feature Vernon Film Society

The Vernon Film Society is pleased to present for its first show of the fall 2010 season the award-winning film The Kids are All Right, directed by Lisa Cholenko. It was the most talked about film at Sundance Film Festival 2010 and also won Best Feature Film at the Berlin Film Festival. The film is a heartfelt and warm story about flawed people –– that is, people like us all. Starring are the great actors Julianne Moore (Chloe, A Single Man) and Annette Bening (The Women, Mother and Child). They play a long time lesbian couple whose lives are turned upsidedown when the anonymous sperm donor,

“father” of their two teen children, unexpectedly enters their lives. When Joni (Mia Wasikowska, last seen as Alice in Alice in Wonderland), the elder of the two children, turns 18, she exercises her right to contact her father and inadvertently invites complications into her ordered family life. The father, Paul (Mark Ruffalo, Blindness) is a freespirited bachelor with few commitments who is happy to meet his offspring. There are two brilliantly observed dinner party scenes with Nic (Bening), the ever uptight partner, and more easy going Jules (Moore) dealing with this new member of their family. Once their first awkward meeting has taken

place, the kids embrace their father and relate to him easily. The original script pays close attention to the nuances of every day family life, no matter what kind of family –– traditional or one of the many kinds which make up families today. Ann Hornaday, film critic for The Washington Post, sums it up well: “Just about everyone who has been a parent, child or partner will find resonance in its bittersweet depiction of the joys and trials of lifelong intimacy.” Don’t miss this chance to see Bening and Moore at the top of their form especially since critics are predicting possible Oscar nominations. The Kids Are All Right is playing at the Towne

Highland dancers visit the motherland Submitted to The Morning Star

Highland dance is a traditional art form born in Scotland and now performed worldwide. For a dancer the ultimate experience is to be able to return the roots of the dance and be able to perform. This summer 10 local dancers from the Aviemore School of Highland Dance, and eight dancers from Kamloops and 100 Mile House, had just that opportunity. The dancers travelled throughout Scotland to compete and sightsee, said Aviemore owner and instructor Cheryl Rosborough, who accompanied the group. “All the dancers came home with great memories and the group in total brought home over 150 medals and five trophies amongst them,” she said. Their route took them from Inverness in the north all they way south to Glenluce. Five competitions in all were squeezed into their two-week stay. “Fortunately for the dancers, the Scottish mists and rain held back and they were able to dance in dry conditions at all competitions,” said Rosborough. Invited by Tourism Scotland to perform as guest dancers at Stirling Castle, a historic landmark, the local group joined a group of dancers from Scotland and put on an evening performance that was inspiring for visitors and locals alike. Highland dance is considered a highly competitive form of dance that requires

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Your productivity could be severely hampered if you allow your activities to be governed by outside influences. If you want to get something done in a timely fashion, block out all frivolous interference. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - This might be a perfect day to start that new project you’ve been anxious to get popping. Temporarily shelve all extraneous involvements and concentrate only on it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Being in the public eye has a certain appeal to you, and it might be one of those times when you won’t mind doing a bit of showboating for the good of the cause. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Don’t discount what you have to offer, because certain know-how you possess could be of great value to others, as well as yourself. Speak up and offer this special information. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Although all individual activities can work out well for you, some greater returns can be generated from certain joint endeavors. If you’re involved in one, make it your priority. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - If you want to know what the secret is to finding all your relationships harmonious, all you have to do is make sure that you are as cooperative with other parties as they are with you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Make it a point to get some physical exercise if there is little need to exert your muscles in your job.

When you do, it would be preferable if you could do something out in the fresh air. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - If you find yourself in a gregarious mood, make some plans to do something fun with friends. Don’t sit around and wait for someone to call you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Domestic issues could occupy the greater portion of your time, yet they aren’t likely to be problems. You’ll simply desire to be around those who are near and dear to you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Mental restlessness can be gratified through spending some time with friends who also have a strong need for intellectual expression. Seek out friends of this ilk who you’ll enjoy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Much to your credit, you’ll make sure the resources you have at your disposal aren’t depleted or wasted on frivolous activities. You’ll figure out how to do what you want as inexpensively as possible.

Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes and weight gain. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment includes the use of bioidentical, plant based hormones that closely duplicate hormones your body produces. Natural hormones also slow the aging process.

Bridge by Phillip Alder Pearl Buck, who was born in West Virginia in 1892, but lived until 1934 mostly in China and was the ďŹ rst American woman to win a Nobel Prize for Literature, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every great mistake has a halfway moment, a split second when it can be recalled and perhaps remedied.â&#x20AC;? Many bridge deals have a halfway moment, the trick that could have been played differently and the contract saved (or defeated, if by a defender). In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deal, you are in six hearts. After West leads the spade king, how would you proceed? Three spades and four clubs were control-bids (cue-bids), showing ďŹ rstround controls and slam

interest. South won with his spade ace, drew trumps ending in his hand, and played a club to dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s queen. But when East won with the king and returned a diamond, South had reached a halfway moment. Should he take the diamond ďŹ nesse or play for a 3-3 club break? Knowing that the odds favor a ďŹ nesse, declarer played his diamond queen -- down one. As a winning club ďŹ nesse didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t automatically spell success unless West had king-doubleton, South should have drawn trumps ending in the dummy and, at trick four, called for the club six. If West could win with the king, South could

check for a 3-3 club split before, if necessary, falling back on the diamond ďŹ nesse. Here, though, if East won with his king, South could take the next trick with his diamond ace, cash dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two club winners, ruff a spade in his hand, and discard dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second diamond on his club jack.

Finance committee visits region Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan residents will have a chance to provide input on the 2011 provincial budget. The select standing committee on finance and government services has announced its plans for conducting budget consultations. The process will be based on the budget 2011 consultation paper, which will be presented by the minister of finance to the committee Sept. 15. “We encourage interested John Les individuals and organizations to make a contribution to this important process,” said committee chairman John Les. “The consultation provides excellent opportunities for British Columbians to shape the province’s fiscal priorities.” This year’s consultation process will include public hearings in 14 communities, and three videoconference hearings covering an additional nine communities. British Columbians are invited to attend the hearings or participate by sending a written or electronic submission, responding to the online survey, or submitting an audio or video file. The all-party committee will hold hearings in the following location: Lake Country Sept. 21 2 to 5 p.m. Videoconferencing hearing: Vernon Oct. 8 9:00 a.m. to noon Registration for the public hearings and video conference hearings opens Sept. 9. To register, contact committee staff at 1-877428-8337, or by e-mail: FinanceCommittee@leg. bc.ca. For more information on the budget consultation process, visit the committee’s website at www. leg.bc.ca/budgetconsultations. The call for public input closes Oct. 15, and members of the select standing committee on finance and government services will complete their report by Nov. 15. “We look forward to hearing the public’s opinions and priorities on the next provincial budget,” said Doug Donaldson, deputy chairman.

The Vernon Vipers are 4-0 in B.C. Hockey League preseason play, but it might be a bit soon to predict a 51-6-0-3 run like they had last season. With 16 players lost to graduation and college commitments, the Snakes are experiencing their largest personnel turnover in four seasons. Viper head coach/GM Mark Ferner says it would be unfair to expect a

repeat of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Royal Bank Cup success, but notes he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about to lower the bar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a lot of teaching going on in the next couple weeks, making sure that everyone is very aware of the expectations and responsibilities,â&#x20AC;? said Ferner, entering his fourth year behind the Viper bench along with assistant coach Jason Williamson.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to be patient with them, but at the same time the expectation doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change. We have a lot of work to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like our group â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have some growing pains, but we have a good group of kids here.â&#x20AC;? Following the Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 4-3 win over the Salmon Arm SilverBacks Saturday night at the Sunwave Centre, Ferner trimmed his roster down to 24 men. He will have

to make one final incision before now and the Snakesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; regular-season opener against the SilverBacks Friday night at Wesbild Centre. Released are netminder Tyler Steel of Vernon, 6-foot-5 defenceman Austin Sture (Anchorage) and forwards Tanner Cochrane (Kamloops) and Adriano Munglioni (Dallas).

Zalewski deuce stuffs Gorillas Continued from B1 The two teams collide again Saturday at Sunwave. Charlie Vasaturo opened the scoring Saturday with a powerplay goal at 17:00 of the first period, assisted by Morgan Zulinick and David Killip. Vernon stormed back 90 seconds later as Gus Correale capped a play with Taylor Love and Tanner Cochrane. The Vipers’ Mike Zalewski netted the first of his two goals early in the second period, assists to Trevor Fitzgerald and Aaron Hadley. “It was a better game. It was more of what both sides were expecting,” said Ferner. “(Friday) night, there wasn’t a lot of intensity or a lot of plays being made. It was pretty sloppy on both sides.” Dave Robinson made it three unanswered Viper goals at 8:17 of the second period, assisted by Dylan Walchuk Greg Maarschalk sends the ball back via a killer backhand. Robinson, who wore #18 with Vernon last season, will be sporting Connor Jones’ old #10 for his final year of Junior A. “I asked permission first and he said he would rather me wear it than someone who doesn’t know him,” smiled the Viper captain, who played on a line with Connor and twin brother Kellen Jones as 16-year-old call-ups before joining the WHL Chilliwack Bruins. “That’s the number I grew up wearing until I got to Chilliwack, so it’s nice to finish off my last year of junior with it.” The SilverBacks jumpstarted the home crowd just 58 seconds into the third period as Jarryd Ten Vaanholt pulled Salmon Arm within a goal. The Gorillas’ Brandon Mistal equalized at 4:44, but

The Vipers shaded the SilverBacks’ 4-3 to finish their BCHL preseason schedule at 4-0. Zalewski, a New Hartford, Conn. native, recorded the winner at 13:58, assisted by Fitzgerald. Vipers’ incumbent Blake Voth (26 saves) and the SilverBacks’ Kris Moore (33 saves), acquired in the offseason from the Camrose Kodiaks, went the distance in net.

When asked what this year’s edition of the Vipers will look like, Ferner grinned: “Good question. It’ll be a while before we get that chemistry, it’ll be a while before we know what we’re doing in every situation as far as systems are concerned.”

for future considerations. The 5-foot-9, 197-pounder was with the Vipers briefly as a 16-yearold before bolting for the Blazers “He‘s a really physical forward who is going to bring some sandpaper to our lineup,” Harbinson told The Penticton Herald. “He‘s really fired up about playing in Penticton this season.” Hall skated with the Vees Monday.

Former Vernon Viper Mark Hall has landed with the Penticton Vees. The 20-year-old roadrunner forward, who scored 11 goals in the past three seasons with the WHL Kamloops Blazers, had expressed a desire to play for the Vipers again after being released by Kamloops. The Vees acquired Hall from the Canmore Eagles of the Alberta league

Magnums blast Penticton Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Magnums rolled over the Penticton #1 Cougars 39-0 in Southern Interior Football Conference Midget action Sunday at Grahame Park. Quarterback Keenan Jespersen and running back Bryce Barker each scored three touchdowns as the Magnums won their season opener. Barker converted two of his own TDs and one of Jespersen’s to add to the score. The Cougars' offence were stymied at every turn by Vernons’ stingy defence, lead by their defensive unit captain, Landon Koenig. Taylor Jameson picked up a fumble recovery in the first quarter with Chris Boring coming away with an interception in the second quarter that thwarted any offensive effort attempted by Penticton. The Magnums defence kept dominating with a second- half sack by Dan Vassberg, coupled with a backfield tackle and separate backfield ball strip by Levi Bieber in the final quarter. Jespersen recorded a pick in the fourth quarter. Head Coach Bill (Lumpy) Tarr was pleased with the excellent effort by both players and his coaching staff through an abbreviated summer camp season. Said Tarr: “We have seen what can happen when you have the right mix of coaches and players who are dedicated to their team.” The Magnums face the Penticton #2 Cougars Sunday at Grahame Park (4 p.m.). In Pee Wee action, the Vernon Yellowjackets had another dominating game Sunday, stopping the Penticton Cougars 32-6 at Grahame Park. Due to the long weekend, the Penticton boys were a little shortstaffed so eight members of the Vernon team suited up against their own team. Garret Black-Thomas, Tyler Braun, Taylor

Pelletier, Bryce Turner, Jamie Bertram, Zach Boring, Weston Vanderveen and Garrett Harman helped out Penticton. On offence, seven different boys ran the ball with Zach Benn (2 TDs) leading the way. Also running the ball were Dylan Huber, Keegan Vicklund and Tyler (Duck) Sova, all with one touchdown apiece. Quarterbacks Vicklund and Nichols each completed 50 per cent of their passes. The Jackets' defence recovered three fumbles and had more plays go backwards than forward. Leading the way with tackles for losses were Noah Beadman, Reid Mackenzie (fumble recovery), Riva, Keith Jones (three sacks and a fumble recovery) Levi Dimitriou and Sova (fumble recovery). Next up for Ed Huber's Jackets are the No. 2 ranked and undefeated West Kelowna Sun Devils. Kickoff Sunday Grahame Field is noon. In Junior Bantam action, the Vernon Marauders suffered a hard-fought 54-28 defeat to the host Kelowna Dragons at Mission Sports Fields. Zack Kronbauer scored all four TDs for the Marauders, who got some well executed fakes by quarterback Tye Kitzman, and some great blocking by linemen Jordan Taylor, Jet Carey and Carson Labrecque and slots Brandon Isaac and Levi Nicholas. Trey Isaac was 2-for-4 on converts. "Our fullback Max Chapman had a huge game for us," said Marauder coach Ron Kirschner, "as did wideouts Ryan Squair, Dimitriy Radechenko and Carter Weir". On defence Jacob Laflamme-Yonkman, Carter Olson-Stiles, Vance Rogers and Luke Nelson were standouts for the Marauders. The Marauders host the Westside Huskies Sunday at Grahame Park (2 p.m.).

Camels clinch 45+ crown Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels brought out the barbecue and put on some burgers to celebrate clinching the Capri Insurance Men's 45+ Soccer League title with a 2-1 victory over the Okanagan Spring Brewery Monday night at Marshall Field #1. Hustling striker Al Murphy put the Humpbacks up 1-0 in the 15th minute by diving to head in a feed from midfielder Brad Hansen. The Camels controlled most of the play in the first half with defender Jim Mottus and midfielder Rod Trentini both shooting wide on good chances. The Brewers lost midfielder Chris Neilson early in the second half for a slide tackle. Neilson had earlier received a caution from referee Shannon Smart for throwing the ball at Hansen so was ejected from the game. Striker Gord Howard took a low cross from Al Betton, who had been fed by Trentini, settled the ball, turned and fired a low shot from seven yards out past keeper Roger Irving, a veteran defender subbing for vacationing Mike Zuber. The goal was Howard's 28th of the season and extended his streak to seven games. Howard received a second-half yellow card for a push from behind on defender Ted Sheehan in a game which slowly

Rick Price deflected a shot by Mike Lloyd to pull the Brewers within a goal with about 14 minutes remaining.

The Vernon United U11 boys soccer team are on a roll as they won their second title in as many tournaments, winning the Michael J. Smith Memorial Soccer Tournament last weekend in Langley. After losing 4-2 to the West Kelowna Sting Sunday afternoon, United came out strong in their final roundrobin game Monday morning and stuffed the Surrey United Stallions 9-1, scoring six goals in the first 10 minutes. Malcolm Wiens recorded three goals, while Owen Burnet and Sam Eggert each scored twice. Charis Ondrik and Mees Geelkerken each added singles. Peter Hirschkorn supplied four assists and Geelkerken had two. “I think the boys wanted to show everyone that their game against Kelowna was a blip and not who they really are,” said United coach Erick Burnet. “Rolf (Hirschkorn) and I are both very proud of how the boys played and it was nice that the team ended the tournament with a strong statement.” United started their march to the cup on Friday with a 9-0 drubbing of the Prince George Kodiaks. The Vernon squad came out strong scoring just min-

utes into the first half and then kept the goals coming. Wiens and Geelkerken both scored four goals apiece, while Ondrik netted a single. Jason Shaigec, Peter Hirschkorn and Wyatt Carter recorded two assists each while Eggert recorded one helper. Shane Pelkey and Aaron Botterill shared the shutout. “The boys executed the game-plan to perfection,” said Burnet. “The team used the wings well and kept great possession of the ball.” On Saturday, United brushed back the Chilliwack Selects 2-1. Ondrik opened the scoring five minutes into the first half, after taking a feed from Joe Eggert at the top of the box. Ondrik then rocketed the ball just under the crossbar. With only a few minutes left in the game, Joe Eggert scored, after taking a pass from Botterill just inside the penalty area. Eggert then beat the keeper with a perfect shot to the left side. The Selects managed to score one goal with a few seconds left, but it was not enough. “The game wasn’t as close as they score indicated,” said coach Hirschkorn. “We hit a post and a crossbar, plus a

Once again the boys utilized the field well, made excellent passes to move the ball around the pitch and defensively didn’t give up many quality scoring chances.” In their second match of the day, Vernon bowed to West Kelowna Sting, quickly falling behind 1-0. Geelkerken converted a penalty shot near the end of the first half to equalize. However, the Sting continued to press and Vernon found themselves giving up two more goals in quick succession to begin the second half, before Geelkerken recorded his sec-

ond goal after he collected the rebound of a Wiens shot. “It was a very disappointing game for the team. We beat the Sting in the Labour Day final in Kelowna and I think the boys thought that the win was in the bag before the game even started,” said Hirschkorn. “However, despite the loss you chalk it up as a learning experience, learning from your mistakes and go from there.” The three wins plus their bonus points for goals scored put Vernon at the top with 25 points, while the Sting and Chilliwack finished with 24 and 23 points respectively.

Doug Becker says talking about his literacy disability has freed him from keeping the secret and he is now able to help others in the same situation.

Challenging literacy disability myths CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Friends and acquaintances know Doug Becker as an intelligent, well-informed and thoughtful man who is a good conversationalist. He is one of the last people anyone would think has a literacy disability. Yet he has spent most of his life compensating for the fact, that like about 40 per cent of people in B.C., he cannot read and write well. “I’ve always felt there is a reader in me trying to get out. If I go into a library, I think how I would love to be able to read everything there,” said Becker, 57, a Cherryville resident. He first talked about his literacy disability when Debbie Schiller of The Junction Literacy Centre did a presentation on literacy recently at The Wonder Cafe in Lumby. The group meets regularly to hear speakers and discuss a wide variety of topics. “I usually don’t tell people that I can’t read well unless there’s a situation where I need to. For example, if someone gives me something to read and it’s too long or complex, I have to say, ‘I’m just not able to read this,’” he said. “Some people don’t believe it. They think from the way I talk that I should be able to read. I’m not just saying this to sound good, but a lot of people have told me that they think I’m intelligent. I keep up with the news and what’s happening by TV and the Internet and read what I can but that is slow going and frustrating.” Becker can’t remember a time when reading wasn’t a challenge. “I didn’t know the alphabet until I was in Grade 5. I had failed Grade 2 and had tests done by the University of Calgary and went

to a special class for two years but my reading skills did not improve. I could fool them a lot of the time because I had a good memory so I could repeat things but anything to do with reading made me feel like an idiot. Even though I was good at math and science and football and hockey, it wasn’t a good experience and I did everything I could to avoid school. I quit school in Grade 10 and I would have left sooner if I could.” Schiller, executive director of The Junction Literacy Centre, said it was unusual for Becker to receive as much help as he did at the time but that learning disabilities were not well understood then. Becker later went to college for upgrading and loved the academic atmosphere and wanted to learn. He would have kept it up if he could have managed all the reading required. “Now Doug, and people like him who need help with reading and writing, would have help at college,” Schiller noted. Becker went on to work in construction, logging and building logs homes. He liked to do volunteer work but his reading disability would sometimes prevent him from doing more. He would speak well and do a good job and be asked to do things that required more reading or writing and then have to decline. “I spent a lot of years being ashamed but why should I be ashamed of something that is actually a disability? I think speaking out about it might help others. I talk to my friends’ kids who have difficulty reading and let them know that they can ask for help. I want to do more public speaking to help dispel the myths and the stigma,” said Becker. Schiller said there are a lot of myths

about literacy challenges. “Low literacy does not mean low intelligence. Most people with low literacy have average to above-average intelligence and function well by compensating in other ways. True illiteracy, meaning a person cannot read or write at all is rare. People will not tell you if they can’t read because there is a strong social stigma attached to limited reading and writing skills. And the number of years of schooling is not a good indication of the reading skill a person has acquired. There are many reasons for low literacy, like learning disabilities, learning styles or missing a lot of school,” she said. Becker is skeptical about improving his own reading skills since he has tried so many things that didn’t help but thinks technology like voice recognition software and text readers might be useful. He reads slowly, having to take his time to sound out each word and then go back and put the sentence together for understanding since he is reading more slowly than he thinks. It takes some time but he’s read books like The Lord of the Rings, Shogun and Roots. “I find now that it’s easier to tell people about my learning disability than to hide it. I think there are a lot of people, and a lot of very successful ones, too, hiding it. We can make a difference if we talk about it, particularly for young people, so their potential is not lost because they have difficulty reading. There is help for people if they want it,” said Becker. Today is International Literacy Day.

Baking without flour for gluten-free treats

S

ummer holidays ended with a flurry of activity for most of us in the Okanagan. The IPE in Armstrong attracted thousands of adults and kids, and for many, it was the final hurrah before heading back to school this week. While visiting my sister this weekend, I came to realize how difficult it is to change one’s diet over to a gluten-free diet. Today there are more people being diagnosed with celiac and/or allergies to the gluten in wheat than ever before in our history and the only effective treatment is to remove Cathi Litzenberger gluten from the diet. For all those who are looking for something sweet but gluten-free, I have a couple of recipes today which will satisfy any sweet tooth. Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies 1 egg 1 cup sugar 1 cup peanut butter, any kind 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 cup chocolate chips, optional

KITCHEN WIT & WISDOM

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare pans: line with foil or parchment paper, or oil generously. Put all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well-blended, or mix very well by hand. Make dough into (about) 36 evenly sized balls. Arrange balls on prepared pans, leaving an inch or so between them. Add chocolate chips, if using, lightly pressing one or two into the top of each cookie. Bake until they flatten out a bit and start to brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and leave on sheet for several minutes, until they begin to firm up, then carefully remove to a cooling rack. Makes 36 cookies. Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Brownies 5 oz. dark Belgian chocolate, or other dark chocolate 1/2 cup butter 2 large eggs 1 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 rounded cup almonds, processed into a fine meal 1/4 cup brown rice flour 1/2 tsp. fine sea salt 1/4 tsp. baking soda 2 tsp. vanilla extract Optional: 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

1/2 cup extra sweet chocolate chips for top Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8X8-inch square baking pan with foil and lightly oil the bottom. Using the microwave, melt the dark chocolate and butter in a large measuring cup. Stir together to combine. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs on medium until frothy. Add the brown sugar and beat until the mixture is smooth. Add the melted chocolate mixture into the egg-sugar mixture a little at a time, incorporate it slowly, and beat well for a good minute. The chocolate will look smooth and glossy. In a bowl, combine the almond meal, rice flour, fine sea salt and baking soda; whisk together. Add the dry flour mixture into the chocolate mixture and beat well for a minute. Add the vanilla, beat another half minute or so. If you’re adding nuts, stir in by hand and spread batter into the prepared pan. It is a thin batter so don’t worry: it will turn out fine. Shake the pan a little to even out the batter. Layer semi-sweet chips all over top and press in slightly, if adding. Bake in centre of preheated oven 33 to 35 minutes, or until brownies are set. Don’t overcook (err on side of gooey, because gluten-free brownies taste better slightly soft in the middle than overcooked). Cool on wire rack; remove brownies from pan by gripping foil edges. Chill before cutting. Recipe freezes well. Makes 9 to 12 servings.

Group offers relaxation and support for those living with cancer Morning Star Staff

For close to 12 years, each Thursday in Vernon, The Cancer Relaxation and Support Group, known as Circlework, has been meeting, providing emotional support and deep relaxation techniques to people living with cancer. Over the years many people have benefitted from having a safe and confidential place to share their journeys with others who understand. Though the faces and stories vary, the benefits seem to remain consistent: validation, compassion, acceptance,

For the record An article on Clare Fuller that ran in the Life section of the Sept. 1 edition of The Morning Star contained a number of errors. Clare Fuller works as a speech-language pathologist (also is a learning resource teacher and counsellor, pending). Social thinking is taught to children, teens and adults with high functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome predominantly, though others with social skill difficulties can benefit from the training (including those with NVLD, ADHD etc.). Fuller works with these individuals in Vancouver and Vernon. Fuller can be contacted via e-mail at mysocialworks@gmail. com

connection, shared laughter and tears, to name a few. The facilitator and volunteers guide clients through the deep relaxation process; these simple techniques can then be utilized in other situations. Many people find practising relax-

ation especially helpful prior to or during treatment, and during the night when sleep eludes them. Any person living with cancer at any stage of the journey is welcome to drop in to the People Place Thursdays

from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Please note this is a change in our original meeting time. People are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing, and to have a support person accompany them. Loved ones also find the group beneficial.

Special Olympics athletes: winning at life BRITTA GRETZMACHER

For Dominique and his mother Heidi, golf was a sport that seemed out of reach. A mental game with so many skills for an intellectual disabled teen? At the end of the spring golf program, all doubts were diminished. “I had no clue that my son would be able to play this sport, he loves it and didn’t want to stop when the session was done. It felt like winning a gold medal for him,” said Heidi Borgeaud. Special Olympics BC Vernon provides high-quality sports program for individuals of all ages with intellectual disabilities. The society strives to enrich lives, and celebrates personal achievement through positive sport experiences. “We are always trying to extend our programs to have our 100-plus athletes physically active every day throughout the year,” said Perry Doner, the program coordinator. “We added a fitness class, and power lifting for the fall, snowshoeing for the winter plus

It makes a meaningful contribution to our community. “There is always the need for more hands in our organization and we hope to fill all vacant spots, especially for coaching and assisting in the sport programs,” said volunteer coordinator John Raikes. Registration night for the 17 winter and summer sports will take place tonight from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Dorothy Alexander Centre. Dessert will be served and the coaches are available with information about their sport. Those who are interested in volunteer coaching or in other positions for the charity are welcome to attend.

Saving seeds

T

he IPE is over and as usual it was a good show. The only thing I totally disagree with is the calf roping section at the rodeo. It is nothing less than cruelty to animals. The SPCA should be taking a good stand against that part of rodeo. The rains have really been Fred Lyall helpful to put out the forest fires. There are a number of gardeners that save seed from their garden for the coming season. Tomatoes are self pollinating and sure to produce the same variety year after year. It is not a good idea to plant more than one variety of melon or squash. They are sure to cross-pollinate. There are a number of root-type vegetables that only a specialist will have success with. I would put carrots, beets and parsnips in that group. The very easy ones to save seed from are spinach and lettuce. I am not one that has the patience to save seeds and found it is much easier to buy seeds such as Pacific Northwest or McKenzie Seeds Co. from Brandon, Man. Would you believe much of the small seeds such as pansies, petunias and many others come from Europe. I am told that one of Canada’s largest seed vendors have set up fairly large farms to produce seeds in Mexico. Cheap labour and a longer growing season makes it a better place for seed production. Okanagan Gardens and Roses meets Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Schubert Centre. Visitors are always welcome.

I would obviously rather have those principals and superintendents working with the teachers to help our education system get better. TF: Are these grievances forcing change in class size or composition? MM: Thinking of the arbitration award last year, there was a very small number of classes that were found to be in violation of class size and composition [rules]. In most of the cases it was a technicality — something like there were two teachers teaching a class, and one wasn’t consulted with and the other one was. Overall, the legislation is being followed. TF: A pilot program for combining school administrative functions such as payroll, vacation and substitute teacher scheduling gets underway this year in Kamloops-Thompson, Surrey, Vancouver and North Vancouver. Is that proceeding according to plan? MM: Yes. There are a lot of things that have to be worked through and that’s why we’re starting with those four districts, but we’re absolutely committed to it where it makes sense. We’re not going to be doing 60 of the same things in different places. We’re going to try to streamline that.

Black Press legislative reporter Tom Fletcher sat down with Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid to discuss the beginning of the 2010-11 school year. The following is an edited transcript: TF: There’s a lot of interest in the full-day kindergarten program starting this year. Is it more popular than you expected? MM: It’s very popular. We’ve had incredibly positive feedback from parents, teachers are very excited, principals are excited. I think people are aware that full-day play-based learning can enrich their kids’ experience, for a better start for school, so they’re more likely to graduate from high school and go on to university or college. TF: Is demand exceeding supply? MM: I’ve heard it’s oversubscribed generally around the province. We’re offering it to about 21,000 students this year, and next year it will be available for all students. One of the things we have to do is develop some new space, and that will happen over the course of this year. TF: Is the half-day option for kindergarten still available? MM: The half-day option is still available this year. Next year the plan is to only offer fullday kindergarten. We have heard from a few parents some uneasiness about that, and even for this year, some parents are wondering if their child’s ready for a full day. So we’ve asked parents to consult with their teacher, and there will be some flexibility allowed. TF: Is the B.C. Teacher’s Federation still filing thousands of grievances about class size and special needs support? MM: My understanding is that they are. One of the disappointing things about that is that it ties up superintendents and principals in many, many grievances, and of course financial resources, and

Classroom changes proceed Continued from B14 Government did this and it certainly accrued considerable savings. [Payroll] can be anywhere because it gets deposited in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bank accounts electronically. TF: B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auditor General says you should extend this to school district banking and investments, so cash isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sitting in bank accounts. Are you following up on that? MM: Absolutely. In fact just this past July we had already begun to do a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;just-in-timeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flow of funds. Previously money for things like payroll was going earlier than it needed to. TF: Everyone imagines a future where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a teacher on a TV screen and everyone in the province is taking classes, to take an extreme example. Can amalgamation come to the classroom? MM: In fact it already has. Learning online has expanded, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about tripled in the last couple of years. We have more than 70,000 students who are taking at least one course online. When you look at the rural and remote areas, I spoke with a teacher in Fort St. John who is involved with this, and he believes the expansion will be just astronomical. Students are choosing to graduate earlier, or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re choosing to work full-time while they go to high school. We also have in OkanaganSimilkameen, an English literature class where the teacher is in one school and some of the students are in another school about an hour down the road. TF: Enrolment province-wide is estimated to be down by about 6,000 this year. Is that the expected decline? MM: Yes. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know the actual number by the end of September, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expecting about 544,000 students in classrooms starting next week.

Students can play a role with the environment Students can think about the environment as they head back to school for an other year. Here are some tips: Encourage children to use refillable bot-

tles at school, instead of relying on bottled water. Help your children to become active in a recycling club at school or to start one.

When shopping for school supplies, buy products that are reusable or have recyclable packaging, and reuse leftover school supplies from last year.

Produce waste-free lunches for your children by sending food in reusable containers and bags, and by avoiding pre-packaged and processed foods.

WHAT IS THE ELECTRONICS STEWARDSHIP ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (ESABC) PROGRAM? ESABC is a not-for-profit extended producer responsibility program set up by the producers and retailers of electronics in British Columbia to provide a province wide recycling system for unwanted electronics.

WHAT ARE THE ACCEPTABLE ELECTRONIC ITEMS INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM? Effective July 1, 2010, the following items can be recycled free of charge at any Encorp Return-It Electronics™ Collection Site: display devices, desktop computers, portable computers, computer peripherals, computer scanners, printers and fax machines, non-cellular phones and answering machines, vehicle audio and video systems (aftermarket), home audio and video systems, and personal or portable audio and video systems.

ISN’T IT IMPORTANT TO REUSE BEFORE RECYCLING? While the program is designed to manage unwanted electronic products that have exhausted their reuse potential, we strongly encourage users to first reuse their products. If you choose to donate to a charity, make sure you have backed up your data and wiped your drives clean prior to donation.

HOW ARE ELECTRONICS RECYCLED? Electronics collected for recycling are sent to approved primary recyclers in North America. They are broken down using various manual and mechanical processes. Products are separated into their individual components for recovery. Through a variety of refining and smelting processes, the materials reclaimed from unwanted electronics are used as raw materials in the manufacturing of new products.

Drivers must be alert It’s back to school time and our roads will be busy again with school buses, a higher volume of children walking on the road and parents picking up and dropping off in school zones. Drivers need to be cautious and take extra care on the road. As drivers, we can affect pedestrian safety and reduce child pedestrian injury by how we act and react behind the wheel. In Canada, more children acquire pedestrian-related injuries in the months of September and October and the most frequently reported child pedestrian action that results in injury or death is crossing at an intersection followed by running on to the road. “Younger children often lack the cognitive and physical skills to make safe decisions,” said Young Drivers of Canada president Peter Christianson. “In Canada, children aged 10 to 14 years have the highest incidence of pedestrian-related injuries, but a larger age range of children (five to 14 years) are at the greatest risk for pedestrian-related fatalities. As drivers, we can predict and prevent these collisions by driving defensively.” Drivers can use this road safety checklist to help navigate this busy back to school time on the road: Be aware of school zone signage Reduce speed in school zones Wait for children to complete their crossing before proceeding (they often change their minds) Stop at least 20 meters behind a school bus when the upper red lights begin to flash and wait until the flashing stops Motorists travelling in both directions must stop for a school bus except if the road is divided by a median Be prepared: school buses stop at all railway crossings and are required to open their door, but are not

Culture minister claims he was threatened DALE BASS Black Press

Kevin Krueger, a Liberal MLA who has been known to criticize previous NDP governments, isn’t happy with criticism he received at a meeting with an arts group. Members of the Alliance for Arts and Culture (AAC), however, say it was the tourism and culture minister who was out of line when he issued what they called threats against the arts community if it didn’t stop criticizing the B.C. Liberal government. Krueger said a press release from the AAC calling on him to “mod-

erate his comments” after he referred to having been threatened at a meeting last November with the group “is a disingenuous try to give a sanitized version of what happened. “I don’t mean to offend anyone but I went to the meeting and there was a fullcourt press to get more money from the government,” he said. “It was carefully orchestrated by them to convey a threat. “What they asked me to take back to the government was a specific threat in detailed steps — and they know exactly what I’m talking about,” said Krueger.

BLACK PRESS FILE PHOTO

Kevin Krueger, B.C.’s tourism and culture minister, claims he came under attack from an arts organization.

Kevin McKeown, AAC director of communications, disagreed with Krueger’s recollection, saying that, during the meeting, members of the group explained to Krueger “that we represent a politically significant group of people who support the arts” and that, if lobbying to see money returned to the arts sector was unsuccessful, “our next step would be taking advocacy to the public.

“Everything is political and these concerns are provincewide,” McKeown said, explaining the group would encourage people to contact their MLAs to express their displeasure with government funding for the arts. “It is everyone’s right to talk to our fellow citizens,” McKeown said, noting the group told Krueger if he “could become la serious advocate [for the arts], there

were political points to be earned.” McKeown said recent comments Krueger made about the meeting — the MLA said he felt his treatment by the group wasn’t “much different to me than a junkie waving a needle if I was confronted by someone on skid row who was high” — were offensive to arts groups that work with the residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

“It was a ludicrous comparison,” McKeown said. “He has made it sound as if he was physically threatened.” Krueger, who is a Kamloops MLA, said he doesn’t mind criticism. “But you don’t cross boundaries. Some of these people have no credibility with me and I’ve told them so. “Our arts community here [in Kamloops], you never get this sort of vituperative stuff.

People in Kamloops understand.” Krueger said there are legal sanctions against threatening MLAs, but he doesn’t “plan to make a legal hassle.” As for the difference between his own criticism of former NDP governments and the ACC’s criticism of his government, Krueger said there’s a difference. “They crossed a line.”

I think of them as resting From the sorrows & the tears In a place of warmth & comfort Where there are no days or years. And I think of them as living In the hearts of those they touched For nothing loved is ever lost. And they were loved so much.

And with the workforce aging – the average age of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse in BC is 47 years – the number of retirees from the profession is exceeding the number of graduates. Entry-level earnings start at $29/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is recognized by the CRPNBC. Government funding may be available.
