Animal acts facing ban
RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
The circus could still roll into town, but the elephants and lions may have to stay home. Vernon council will consider a bylaw Monday that proposes a ban on exotic animals in the community, including during travelling circus shows. “Lots of communities have done this and there have been demands from people to do this,” said Clint Kanester, bylaw enforcement officer, who will make the presentation to council. The proposed bylaw doesn’t come as a surprise to Coun. Buffy Baumbrough. “We have received a large number of letters from the public on that issue and they’ve been asking for a bylaw restricting circuses Baumbrough with exotic animals,” she said. During a circus at Wesbild Centre in NATALIA VIGNOLA / August, some residents gathered outside to MORNING STAR protest animals being used in live acts.

Drive-thru event returns
Glenn Benischek, VantageOne chief executive officer, and Linda Yule, United Way executive director, check out the bags which will be handed out during the drive-thru breakfast Thursday from 6 to 9 a.m. at the Best Western Vernon Lodge. Vantage One donated $1,652, the cost of the 750 bags.
RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Helping local social agencies is as easy as rolling down your car window for breakfast. The United Way will hold its 10th drive-thru breakfast at the Best Western Vernon Lodge starting Thursday at 6 a.m. Proceeds will go towards 28 organizations that provide 35 programs in the North Okanagan-Shuswap. “Almost every year the breakfast bags are gone by 8:45 a.m. and one year it was by 8:30 a.m.,” said Linda Yule, executive director. “All year round people are asking about this event. No one wants to miss it. It’s a lot of fun.” And donating to charity has never been easier. “Just drive in or bike or walk in,” said Yule. Along with receiving Tim Hortons coffee and bags containing water, juice, an apple, yogurt, chips and baked goods, there are lots of prizes in random bags. You can also win accommodations at four different RPB resorts, Highlands golf passes, Home Building Centre gift cards, a McDonald’s birthday party, Canadian Tire dollars and a trip for two on Horizon Air. The drive-thru breakfast is the kick-off to United Way’s annual fundraising campaign, and the goal this year is $300,000. “We’re not asking for over and above what the agencies need,” said Yule of the target. “That’s the genuine need in the community.” Organizations that have received previous funding include Abbeyfield House, the Enderby Family Resource Centre, the Falkland/Westwold First Responders, the North Okanagan Family Resource Centre, the First Nations Friendship Centre, the Kindale Development Association, St. John Ambulance and the White Valley Community Resource Centre in Lumby. “There is everything from pre-natal nutrition to seniors’ good morning calls. We touch everybody,” said Yule of the agencies’ impact on the public. A total of $245,000 was raised last year, and while the economy is still soft, Yule is confident that the 2010 goal can be achieved. “I’m feeling pretty good and hopeful,” she said. “The economy continues to be a challenge for some and some people and businesses are doing well.” For more information about the campaign, call the United Way at 250-549-1346.

Input wanted on Peanut Pool RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
One politician wants assurances that a popular spot is meeting the needs of toddlers. Director Patrick Nicol believes the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee should make sure that the operating times are appropriate for the Peanut Pool in Lakeview Park. “We should ask the users about any improvements if any they may want to see,” he said. “There may be some that make sense.” The Morning Star has recently ran a number of letPatrick Nicol ters from residents expressing opinions about the hours at the Peanut Pool, and whether it should remain as a wading pool or evolve into another concept. Nicol insists the goal should be to satisfy the needs of the public. “It’s one of the best recreational opportunities for young families that may exist,” he said. “There must be something we can do to encourage more use.” It hasn’t been determined how GVAC could garner input from residents, but director Doug Dirk believes attendance figures should be considered because they reflect the times people visit the pool. “You can have one or two vocal (people) and a whole bunch that don’t say a lot,” he said. Any changes to the pool would have to be considered as part of GVAC’s upcoming 2011 budget process.

More info sought for HST bill JEFF NAGEL Black Press
Liberal MLAs who sit on the committee weighing B.C.’s first successful citizens’ initiative want more information from B.C.’s chief electoral officer before deciding whether to send a proposed HST-repealing bill to the Legislature or hold a referendum. Eric Foster, Liberal MLA for VernonMonashee, says he wants to know more precisely how much a referendum might cost and perhaps other answers, such as whether additional questions could be put to the electorate. “I want to make sure I’ve got all my facts straight before I vote,” Foster said. “The purpose of this is not to stretch this out. I want to clear this up as quickly as we possibly can.” NDP MLA Jenny Kwan proposed the select standing committee on government initiatives send the bill to dismantle the harmonized sales tax on to the legislature for a free vote at the earliest opportunity. Liberals on the committee used their 5-4 majority to put the brakes on that idea until answers can be gathered to any questions. Liberals, including Foster and SurreyTynehead MLA Dave Hayer, said they want a speedy resolution to the issue. But Kwan wasn’t convinced. “The last thing this committee needs to do is engage in delaying tactics,” she said. The wrangling centred on whether acting Chief Electoral Officer Craig James could simply appear at the committee or whether a clerk must act as go-between, sending questions and bringing back answers. “We may as well bring our sleeping bags, we’re going to be here for quite some time,” said Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth, noting each answer could easily spawn more questions.
Beattie building begins Morning Star Staff
Construction of a new elementary school in Enderby is moving ahead. The North OkanaganShuswap School District recently awarded the contract to build the new M.V. Beattie Elementary to Mierau Construction Kamloops. “The $9.5 million contract is on budget,” said Alice Hucul, with the district. Forming and preparation work will begin this month, and it’s expected it will take 14 months to build the new school. The anticipated opening date for the school is fall 2011. “The recycling and demolition of the old school, as well as final site work, are expected to be done in the spring of 2012,” said Hucul.
“I want to make sure I’ve got all my facts straight...” — Eric Foster After an hour of debate, the committee was advised James can appear directly before them. MLAs unanimously voted to adjourn until 1 p.m. Monday. Committee chair Terry Lake, Liberal MLA for Kamloops-North Thompson, admitted the issue is straightforward – there are only two possible options – but said the process may be “excruciating” for observers. The committee has 90 days from receipt of the petition to decide what to do. A referendum, if called, would be non-binding and held in September, 2011. New Democrats predict it could cost as much as $30 million. Fight HST campaign leader Bill Vander Zalm has already said that only a vote in the Legislature to repeal the HST will dissuade volunteers from launching recall campaigns to unseat Liberal MLAs and pressure the government to scrap the HST. More than 700,000 people signed the petition, which Elections BC declared successful with 557,383 validated signatures. The Fight HST-drafted bill would repeal the 12 per cent HST, reinstate the seven per cent provincial sales tax and rebate extra money collected since July 1 to all B.C. residents. New Democrats have conceded it may be difficult to unravel the HST before 2015, when the five-year agreement with Ottawa expires.

Fire and rain, etc.
elcome to fall. The kids are back in school, finally, a semblance of routine has been established and the weather is definitely cooler, if not wetter as well. Sure the summer went fast, as always, but I think I’m not the only one secretly glad we’re back to a little more normal life pattern. A quick look back at the summer that was is in order and where we stand today in comparison...... ........apparently our local water supply is presently at its fourth-highest mark in the last 12 years and we have nothing to worry about for the foreseeable future. Gee, I know that’s weather-dependant and Glenn Mitchell the rain of late has helped a ton but it’s striking how markedly different the scenario is from last spring when local officials were telling people they wouldn’t be able to fill their swimming pools this year. Now I know we can’t predict the weather too well yet, like for this weekend let alone the whole summer which is why I’m encouraging my kids to go into meteorological studies where being right half the time is good enough to be called an expert (flip a coin anyone?), but maybe the officials jumped the gun just a bit? I remember it rained quite heavily after it was announced, either Mother Nature took pity on pool owners and/or thought the restrictions were a little over the top too and acted accordingly. So the rules were scaled back but methinks generally these days governments and bureaucrats are quick to install measures in order to be seen to at least be doing something about situations that largely are out of our control. Now, in their defence I think it’s partly that the public at large demands it these days as we want and expect to control as much of our living conditions and destiny as humanly possible
(even though ironically we just screw things up in the long run by adopting this approach, i.e. tinder dry forests and pine beetle infestations that are accentuated due to us putting out natural phenomenons like forest fires). ....and speaking of forest fires. Although the north got hit pretty hard, this region got off very light, despite spring warnings of possibly the worst season ever (I love stories like that, usually from major media, like the front-page predictions of historic flooding a few years ago that never occurred). Now I know the media plays a part in this “worst-case scenario” news coverage because, well, like they say, it sells papers and people, for some reason, love to be scared by doomsday predictions, so why not feed the need? But too often it results in fear-based politics. It seems to me officials announce campfire bans at the first sign of a prolonged heat wave and way sooner than they used to when we didn’t seem to be so afraid of everything, especially the stuff we can’t control, like the weather. Now don’t get me wrong. I understand the need for water restrictions and campfire bans and I follow them accordingly, although sometimes begrudgingly, but I just think if the politically correct agenda imposed by bureaucrats and politicians (and yes, spurred on by the public and media) gets too far from the reality of the situation (you know, the truth), then look out. Does no one remember the message of the Never Cry Wolf story?......... ........and speaking of the truth. Another thing that occurred this summer is the steady decline of the price of oil in the financial markets. Yet, around here we still have gas prices of 108.9, unchanged over this same period? If the same market forces had gone up over the summer I’m sure we’d be paying 128.9. But by some miracle of the market that only seems to apply to this industry, prices go up quickly and come down, well, very slowly, if ever........gee, maybe we could get the bureaucrats and politicians to look into this?.........
To make the tough job of managing and protecting our salmon resource even more confusing, sockeye salmon seem to be making a comeback in the very summer when the federally appointed Cohen Commission is studying their disappearance. So we ask the question, is the commission still worthwhile if this year turns out to be a strong sockeye year, showing that their demise has been greatly exaggerated? The answer is — the inquiry should proceed aggressively and thoroughly to determine the reasons for the three previous disastrous seasons. Then, thanks to the honest testimony from all involved, combined with rigorous research, perhaps some answers can be found to explain why sockeye vanished one year—then returned the next. It’s never easy to be conclusive about natural cycles. But it is easy to draw conclusions after the fact, such as the over-fishing that destroyed the Atlantic cod. We cannot make the same mistake with B.C.’s iconic fish, the sockeye salmon. The species means too much to all British Columbians – from the First Nations who first harvested them, to the resort and sports fishing industry that shares them with visitors from around the world, to the severely diminished commercial fishery—all groups agree on protecting the resource. There may be differences in how that’s achieved, but one message from all groups is clear. And that is—do what is necessary to save the sockeye. ---Kelowna Capital News

EDITOR: GLENN MITCHELL
Meaningful debate needed
ow that the anti-HST petition has been affirmed, it is timely to follow up my 27 April 2010 letter which set out some reasons why I support, and believe all citizens of B.C. should support, implementation of the HST. My hope for a rational debate on the substance of the issues has proven naively optimistic. Instead we have been treated to all that is worst in B.C.’s polarized politics. Any hope for true debate was ended by the farcical provisions of the “citizens’ initiative” legislation which, on the one hand, muzzled the government just when clear explanations of the changes were needed and, on the other hand, placed no onus on the “No” side to support their claims. Now we are told that opponents were really marshaling the “voice of the people” to rein in an “unresponsive government.” Some issues arise from this state of affairs. Any who think “responsive government” is the same as “direct democracy” should be careful what they wish for. We may like to think of ourselves as California North but direct democracy has brought government in that once exemplary state to a standstill. We already have in common with California that we
demand lower taxes but then treat every school, hospital, road, bridge, community centre, government service, etc. as essential. Any proposed cut, however necessary to control taxes, is met by outrage and a demand for continued subsidy from our fellow taxpayers. Welcome to Greece ... Our system is one of representative democracy for a reason - with all its flaws, it is at least workable. We need to see this sudden, and in my view short-lived, support for direct democracy for what it really is. When there are no reasonable grounds to object to an opponent’s position, the way out is to change the subject. The shift to HST is the wisest change to B.C. tax policy in at least a generation. Every jurisdiction that has adopted a value-added approach has experienced a boost to investment and employment. Difficult for
FREE SOCIETY? In regard to the article "Zodiac hits the water on Kalamalka Lake" from a recent Morning Star, a few thoughts. In a free society, if a man chooses not to wear a lifejacket while participating in aquatic sports, he is in no way harming or putting at risk anyone other than himself (and even that, only very slightly); it is, therefore, his own business, and not the place of Transport Canada bureaucrats or anyone else to interfere. The same is true vis-a-vis towing without a "spotter" (ridiculously touted as a "serious offence" in the article), as the only party who could possibly be affected is the skier himself; again, it is his own business, and no one else's. As to the "operator card" issue...Isn't it funny how the human race managed to survive through more than a century of power boating without official licensing for small pleasure craft, but now, again on the whim of some bureaucrat, it has
even the most partisan politician to oppose on its merits but if political advantage was always the overriding motivation, it was essential to change the subject - unresponsive government is such an easy target. Other ironies abound in this little drama. The air is full of cries for “recall” but those yelling loudest for the voice of the people to be heard seem most interested in nullifying the voice of the people as expressed at our last election. Opponents of HST claim the move to HST was hidden from voters during the last election. How many who signed the anti-HST petition were made aware recall was the real objective? Was it hidden from voters? Perhaps it just evolved from events much as the government claims about the introduction of HST? Interesting also that protest organizers ostensibly so deeply concerned about our tax dollars, would happily
become an absolute necessity? Strange, and probably untrue. "Allowing underage persons to operate a vessel such as a Sea-doo". Well, God forbid you should let your kids have fun on the water. This is yet another of that legion of regulations that are pure bureaucratic muscle-flexing, a complete nonissue till someone at Transport Canada latched on to a few isolated incidents as an opportunity to impose his will on others. Simply putting up signs at beaches and boat launches (much cheaper than hiring ticket-writers), reminding parents that they bear full civil liability for any havoc wreaked by the minors under their charge, would be the simple and effective solution to this non-problem. We all agree that every human being owns him or herself, and is not a possession of the state, and that unless a man is doing something that is hurting or is liable to hurt another person, the government has no reason to stick its nose in his affairs.

spend many millions of those dollars on multiple recall votes ... Finally, what if the opponents of HST were to succeed in bringing the government down and forming the next government? I trust no one in B.C. imagines there is even the slightest possibility sales tax will be eliminated. Remember Mr. Chretien promising to remove the GST? We fell for that one too. The only question here is what form our sales tax will take. If any party were to reverse course on HST, what would take its place? The old job killing tax-on-tax system? Surely not. At most, HST would be repackaged with a few more exemptions and presented as “... new and innovative - your government working for you ...”, blah, blah, blah. We often claim we want politicians who will “do the right thing” even when it is unpopular. For once in a very long time that is exactly what we got. I hope - there is that word again - we will not let justifiable but unfocused anger over such things as the recession, pine beetle job losses and ridiculous Bay Street bonuses lead us to shoot off our own foot in pursuit of misdirected retribution. Michael Murison
This principle is the very basis of free civil society. Anything else is fascism, no matter how you dress it up. And the whole "water safety" push is just the latest example of the bureaucracy's relentless quest to move our society towards a soft, nannystate fascism. Let's stop it in its tracks. Ian D. Tribes SCAM TIP One scam should be easy to avoid: if one gets a call from a "son" or "daughter" ask a few questions, such as: Where does your grandmother live, what is your brothers name? (especially if there is no brother.) If the caller does not know the answers, call the police and report this. Helen Abrahamse
RECALL TIMES TWO Apparently if B.C. opts out of the HST agreement with the federal government the entire funds paid out would have to be returned. There is also no opting out clause in the agreement between the Province and Feds. How stupid was that of our provincial government? If one goes into the recall phase is there also one to recall Harper's Conservative Government? Elinor Turrill

Parks’ funds garner debate RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Politicians are joining the fight for increased support for recreational facilities but some fear that could take cash away from critical public works. The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee will back the B.C. Recreation and Parks Association’s bid for provincial funds to renew recreation infrastructure. However, director Mike Macnabb questions if parks and recreation should be a priority. “Health care and education are the two biggest issues right now,” he said. “If it comes to board and we have to decide, ‘Do you want parks or education,’ those are the trade-offs we have to look at.” Director Gyula Kiss is also concerned about targeting federal and provincial money for
projects like parks and Lippert.

Village votes for corridor
CITY OF ARMSTRONG
Morning Star Staff
Lumby politicians are taking action to keep economic activities on track. On Tuesday, council voted to amend the official community plan and zoning to designate the rail line in the village as a public transportation corridor that can’t be used for non-transportation uses. “With it, there are opportunities for businesses that need transportation options,” said Coun. Lori Mindnich. Communities throughout the North Okanagan are taking similar action after the rail line between Spallumcheen and Grindrod closed. Attempts are now being taken to ensure that track isn’t completely abandoned. While there is nothing to indicate that the rail line in Lumby could close, Mayor Kevin Acton insists now is the time for council to be proactive. “If we lose the rail line, it’s one less reason for people to set up here,” he said. “You have to consider the long-term effects

— Lori Mindnich before you give it up.” But protecting the line as a transportation corridor doesn’t necessary mean it would remain for train traffic only. “It could be rail, a roadway or a walking/ cycling trail,” said Acton. “Perhaps some day there could be light-rail transit.” Mindnich believes protection of the corridor could provide the community with opportunities, particularly when it comes to tourism. “If the rail company doesn’t want it, it could be turned into a nice corridor for biking to Lavington or Vernon,” she said.
At the time of the bid, successful bidders are required to deposit cash and/or bank draft with the Collector, for an amount equal to at least the upset price of the property offered for sale.

Real estate sales taper off Morning Star Staff
Real estate sales have cooled off in the North Okanagan. Compared to the units sold last year at this time, overall sales declined 31.32 per cent in August to 105 from 156 – down slightly (1.9 per cent) from last month (103). “B.C. home sales bottomed out in July and remained flat in most markets during August – an expected summer lull created by a flurry of sales earlier this year with rock bottom interest rates,” says Darcy Griffiths, with the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board. Total residential sales dropped 31.82 per
cent over last August to 98 from 142 – in line with the 99 sold in July, while the 54 single family units sold decreased by 19.4 per cent over August 2009 (67) – up 10.2 per cent over last month (49). Sales activity yearto-date has declined by 1.22 per cent compared to the first eight months of 2009 to 1,052 units
from 1,065 and sales volumes are down to $355,012,322 from $363,160,164 in 2009. “Going into fall, sales activity is expected to regain momentum as recent downward pressure on fixed-term mortgage rates could improve consumer confidence and spark renewed buyer interest,” said Griffiths.

Venue change for Terry Fox Run ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
As a student at the old brick school in Armstrong – Armstrong Elementary – Tania Mund remembers standing outside the front of the school in her gym shorts and shoes, waiting with her school mates to take part in the Terry Fox Run in early September. Now, as a mom with a husband and two kids, Mund remains involved as the organizer of the Terry Fox Run in Vernon, slated for Sept. 19. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the first Terry Fox Run, which raises money for cancer research. “I followed the Terry Fox Run for sure, watching him on TV, it was amazing to see and it really brought it to the forefront,” said Mund. “For me, at that time, it was ‘Cancer? What’s cancer? Oh my God, what happened to his other leg?’ He was really bringing awareness of cancer to the country. “That’s the legacy he started. He was like, “Hey, I’m an average ordinary guy trying to make a difference one person at a time.” Fox’s goal in 1980 was to run across Canada 26 miles a day – Marathon of Hope – with every Canadian donating $1 to cancer research.

REGIONAL DISTRICT OF NORTH OKANAGAN
The Regional District of North Okanagan - Greater Vernon Water in conjunction with the City of Vernon and District of Coldstream Operations will proceed with the annual water main ﬂushing program over the next few months.
3000 - 43 Ave.
What is water main ﬂushing? The water utility ﬂushes water mains to remove sediment and reduce the build up that accumulates in the mains. The process also helps to remove stagnant water and water that has deteriorated at dead ends. This annual process helps to improve water quality for public health.
Intensive ESL Immersion for English as a Second Language
How are customers affected during water main ﬂushing? While crews are ﬂushing in your area, you may notice an increase in sediment or discoloration of the water and a reduction in water pressure. What should customers do when water main ﬂushing occurs in their area? • Try to refrain from using water when ﬂushing is in progress to reduce impact on household water systems.
Develop strong English Communication skills that are transferable to school, the workplace and everyday life. Students focus on the foundational skills of speaking, listening and pronunciation, with some guidance from instructors on grammar and writing. The goal of the program is to increase communication abilities through practical and fun learning experiences. No pre-requisites. Continuous monthly admission. Mondays - Thursdays 8:30 - 2:30 p.m.
• Customers may choose to store enough water for one day if it is considered necessary. • Should you choose to run water when water main ﬂushing is in your area you may choose to boil or not drink the water and use a safe alternative. Water intended for the following uses should be boiled for one minute: • Drinking • Making beverages or ice • Washing fruits and vegetables • Brushing teeth • We strongly advise you to check your water before doing any water related household work and refrain from doing laundry. Once ﬂushing is complete it may be necessary to run an outside tap until water clears.
NEW SESSION DATES: • October 4 - October 28 • November 1 - November 25 • November 29 - December 23

Vernon District RCMP Texas Scramble organizers Brad Haberstock, second from left, Lori McIntosh, Const. Mike Caira and Const. Curtis Rasmussen watch Safety Bear as he knocks in a six-foot putt at Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club where the scramble will take place Oct. 2.
As a 32-year veteran of the RCMP, Const. Mike Caira has organized plenty of police golf fundraisers. But most of those were in the Prince George area where he worked before moving to Vernon. Now, he’s organizing a tournament he hopes will become an annual tradition. The Vernon District RCMP Texas Scramble will take place Oct. 2 at Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club with funds going to the Teen Junction Youth Centre. Teen Junction was chosen because, as an RCMP officer, Caira knows how important a positive influence can be in the lives of at-risk youth. “It’s a good way for us to go,” said Caira. The event will be a shotgun start around noon and will be a best-ball format says Caira. For $100, golfers will get a power cart, lunch and a steak dinner, and a bucket of golf balls to warm up with on the driving range. There will be contests throughout the day as well including men’s and women’s long drive awards, putting competitions and closest-to-the-pin prizes. “We just want to support something worthwhile in our community, have a few laughs and maybe win some great prizes,” said Caira. A silent auction will take place with sporting memorabilia from Rocky Mountain Sports Incorporated up for grabs. Sponsorship opportunities are still available as well and again proceeds will go to Teen Junction. There will be a maximum of 144 allowed to register and about half the openings are already
claimed. If you’d like to register or sign up as a sponsor, call Caira at 250-260-7106 or e-mail him at email@example.com.

Sign gets OK despite protest ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Two residents of a Spallumcheen mobile home park fear light from a newly approved large business sign will shine brightly into their homes. Council unanimously approved a development variance permit application from Mike Rosman RV Sales, owners of BC Cargo Trailers, located at 4125 Palisades Place, to erect a free-standing sign on the northeast corner of the property. The sign for BC Cargo Trailers would be
Grapes suffering Black Press
Grape growers and wine makers are doing the sun dance in their vineyards this September in an attempt to encourage it to come out from behind the clouds and improve the maturity of grapes suffering from colderthan-normal weather. H o w e v e r , Enviornment Canadaâ€™s meteorologist Doug Lundquist doesnâ€™t hold out much hope that thereâ€™ll be a significant warming trend as we move into autumn. In fact, he says, in the past 90-day period the temperatures overall have been .4 C above normal, although they were normal the past couple of weeks in August, and have dropped below normal in September. But, grape growers point out that May and June were cold and wet, so things got off to kind of a slow start in the vineyards of the valley.
â€œThere are already enough yard lights on the building.â€? â€” Shirley Rempel set back two metres of the east property line, adjacent to Highway 97A, and eight metres from the north property line. The illuminated sign would be just short of 30-feet tall. A man who only identified himself as Don, a resident of the
points north and south, and low-flow lights are used so a glare would not be a bother to the residents. Planner Greg Routley explained that the applicant obtained the necessary permission from the Ministry of Transportation and Highways to install the sign within a provincial set-back area. Couns. Dave Brew and Christine Fraser were absent from the meeting.

LeafSource stops woman’s pain within days! “It works! I’ll take another two bottles please!” This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had ﬁnally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian.

Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away. “She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.” By now you are probably wondering what is LeafSource and why is it so effective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university
research. LeafSource helps regulate the inflammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70 - 80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems — often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops through the aging process. With joint inﬂammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and www.leafsource.com inﬂ ammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive anti-inﬂammatory drugs that cause more problems than they solve. There are absolutely no side effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent antiinﬂammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction to inﬂammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily. This product gets results! LeafSource is scientiﬁcally validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of
Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. Aside from its incredible anti-inﬂammatory and pain reducing ability, it has also been shown to improve the performance of your daily nutrition and vitamin programs. It helps increase the absorption of vital nutrients, which in turn helps these nutrients work better. Better absorption = better results! It’s almost as if they have become supercharged! LeafSource has also been shown to help enhance energy levels, improve intestinal health, strengthen hair, skin and nails and improve immune function. To see someone go from intense pain to a new lease on life within a week is truly incredible. Imagine being able to move freely without pain. Who wouldn’t want to get out of bed in the morning with more energy? It’s amazing how much of this stuff we take for granted, until it’s gone!

After significant changes in the valley and a renewed concern for water issues, OBWB began a water management program in 2006. “A number of very positive initiatives have been created as a result,” said Warwick Sears, pointing to the water conservation and quality improvement grant program and the creation of the Okanagan Water Stewardship Council.

No matter how tough the challenge...
Buying in this market
re you getting mixed signals? Is the talk in the coffee shop upsetting you? There seems to be lots of talk about prices going down and if that talk continues, prices will continue to go down. While we were overdue for a price correction, I feel a good part of the lowering of prices we are experiencing is caused by the negative focus of media coverage. Our economic recovery is slower than what was hoped for, but nonetheless we are told the Canadian economy is recovering. I believe that the media coverage is part of what prompted such an excessive number of homeowners to list, therefore saturating the marketplace. When the supply exceeds the demand, prices get forced down. With interest rates for home mortgages close to the record low of last year, it is very tempting to go ahead with a home purchase. So, why else would you
become a home buyer now? Obviously, there is a wonderful selection to pick from. Also, homes are priced less than last year. Waiting for the prices to bottom out is not as easy as it sounds. Once you realize the prices have Jane Field stopped going down, they are most often already on their way back up. Here’s a thought. Waiting to buy at as low a price as possible
is only a small part of succeeding in home ownership. The ultimate goal for most of us is to own our home outright before we retire. So is it not possible that any time is a “good” time to buy? Over the decades it takes to pay off a home, prices will go up and prices will go down, but if you dutifully make your mortgage payments, you will eventually own your home outright. In other words, think long-term. Having said this, I do think you need to feel that your job is not subject to layoffs or
elimination. You must feel assured you can always make those payments. If you can make extra payments, do so. Even bi-weekly payments speed up the process considerably. Make the best decisions you can about fixed and variable mortgages and always shop for the best available financing rates and terms. Keep focusing on growing your equity to 100 per cent and you will be a success story eventually. To doubt that success is like saying you don’t believe houses
will be priced this high in 20 or 25 years. Not many of us would say that is likely. Jane Field works with Re/Max Vernon. Jane has over 30 years experience in the Real Estate business.

John Cochrane shares his more than 85 years of music in Songs of Yesterday. “I started singing when I was eight and was always in the school programs. I remember songs like My Blue Heaven, Gold Mine in the Sky, and Goodbye Little Darling. When we got the radio in 1928, we were able to hear a lot more songs. It was wonderful,” he said. He learned to play the violin and kept singing as he was growing up in Coronation, Alberta. He left his music while he served in the Canadian army in 1943-44 but still enjoyed going to dances and listening to the beautiful songs of the era. “When I came back west, I took up singing again and played the banjo and led sing-alongs for the YMCA and Boy Scouts. When the keyboard came out, it was great. It gave me much more variety and it was easier to sing with,” said Cochrane, 94. He owned a refrigeration business in Edmonton until he retired. His first wife died in 1995 after 42 years of marriage and he remarried in 1998 and moved to Vernon in 2003 where his second wife died in 2004. “Music has been so important to me through everything. Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night and play before breakfast. It’s a means of expression and it means so much when I can communicate my pleasure to other people and they enjoy the music with me.” Cochrane was able to contribute more than $630 to mostly youth and children’s organizations from a similar concert he held last year. “I really appreciated it when people told me how much they enjoyed the concert last year,” he said. “I thought we might get about 50 people and we put out 50 chairs but 140 people came. I had so many requests to do a repeat performance, so here it is.” A member of the i2i Intergenerational Society which brings children and seniors together, Cochrane is also a member of

New program helps those with dementia Morning Star Staff
A new program offers people with dementia the opportunity to work on personalized exercises to improve memory loss. The program, called the Ashby Memory Method, was developed by the late Dr. Mira Ashby 25 years ago to treat people with traumatic brain injuries. Ashby received the Order of Canada in 1984 for this
work. Her son, Dr. John Ashby of Calgary, began using this therapeutic method with his patients and noticed that it was effective for people with Alzheimer disease and other forms of dementia. The Ashby Memory Method is a series of individualized interactive brain exercises and activities that can be used alone or with other treatments plans. The method can help people enjoy
a better quality of life, stay at home longer, and reduces caregiver stress. Mechal Corbett, of The Nurse Next Door Vernon, has trained staff members to offer the program in Vernon. “We’re very excited to be able to offer our clients and their families a program that will delay and possible reverse some of the symptoms associated with the progression of dementia,” she said.
“We have seen some wonderful changes in our clients with dementia once a routine has been developed that involves consistent caregivers and activities appropriate for that individual. To have something more to offer families that’s non-invasive and will improve the home environment even more is very encouraging.” For more information call 250-545-4455.

Vipers hauled down on banner night GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star
That RBC Cup championship banner cast a pretty big shadow after it was raised to the rafters at Wesbild Centre Friday night. The fresh-faced Vernon Vipers, charged with defending the club’s national junior A hockey title, looked like a nervous bunch as they fell 4-1 to the Salmon Arm SilverBacks in their 2010-11 B.C. Hockey League regular-season opener before nearly 2,000 fans. Vipers’ head coach/GM Mark Ferner described his team’s performance as “unacceptable,” but shouldered much of the blame himself. “It was a big night for our hockey team, for our fans. I’m pretty sure there were guys in there who couldn’t feel their legs. It’s a pretty unbelievable opportunity to be able to go through something like that,” he said, of the banner raising ceremony before the opening faceoff. “I will take ownership for this loss because obviously I didn’t have them prepared.” Opening day jitters aside, the SilverBacks looked like a team that came to play and, backstopped by netminder Kris Moore’s 28-save, second-star performance, they were full credit for the win. The two clubs tangled again Saturday night at the Sunwave Centre in Salmon Arm. Neither team looked all that steady in the first 10 minutes. The Gorillas’ Josh Manson made good use of the scrambled play, delivering solid body checks on Viper defenceman Philip Patenaude and winger Gus Correale in the opening minutes. Moore, a Calgary native acquired in the offseason from the Camrose Kodiaks, came up with the first of several solid saves, flashing a pad to deny Aaron Hadley after centreman John Knisley fed him a drop pass in the slot. Vernon struck first on the powerplay at 12:55 as captain Dave Robinson burst from the corner and was stripped going to the net. Dylan Walchuk (third star) slid the loose puck just inside the left post before Moore could react. Walchuk, an 18-year-old McBride product, didn’t think the hype around the banner raising was an acceptable excuse for the Vipers’ poor showing. “It maybe brings a little nervousness, but it doesn’t really factor in because it’s a whole new season,” he said. “We just didn’t show up as a team tonight and we didn’t have a very good effort. But we’ve got to go through those growing pains. It was wake-up call for us. “We’re going to have to gel here as a group pretty quickly and just come out every night with a better effort.” Salmon Arm responded on the very next shift as Devin Muller charged into Vernon’s zone, pulled a nice toe drag to free up some space before beating Blake Voth (23 saves) with a quick shot from the faceoff dot. A few minutes later, SilverBack veteran Dave Killip went in on an odd-man rush, flipping a gorgeous saucer pass over a Viper defender’s stick to set up Brett Knowles (first star) for an open net one-timer to make it 2-1 after 20 minutes. “Killip gave me an open net so I can’t really take much credit for it,” smiled Knowles, a second-year SilverBack who

Vernon Vipers' defenceman Malcolm Lyles dishes out a thundering hit on Salmon Arm Silverbacks' Morgan Zulinick in the B.C. Hockey League season opener Friday night at Wesbild Centre. The ‘Backs earned a 4-1 decision over the defending RBC champs. is enjoying a bigger role with the team. “It feels good to have more responsibility. We lost some good players, but we got some good players in as well.” After losing a pair of preseason games to Vernon last weekend, Salmon Arm head coach Tim Kehler was thrilled with how his squad responded. “At the best of times it is a tough building to come into and win, and particularly on a night when they’re raising that championship banner I think it was nice motivation for our guys,” said the first-year coach. “It’s an intimidating place to play, and rightfully so. The Vipers are still the champs until someone shows them otherwise.” Moore did his part to keep it scoreless in the second period, coming cross-crease to stuff Hadley on a great feed from Michael Zalewski. He then squeezed his shoulder to stop Darren Nowick on his doorstep. Said Kehler: “It looked like the kids had a lot of confidence with him behind them and he just looked in control right throughout. He’s a big-bodied guy who is strong in his position and he made the saves he needed to make.” Salmon Arm killed off a critical 5-on-3 late in the sec-
ond period, not allowing the Vipers anything in the way of offence. Kehler said it was a critical point in the game. “Other than those looks we gave them on the powerplay, I don’t think we gave them anything,” he said. “Our structure was terrific, we defended well and I really liked the way we played in the third.” Voth was tested early in the third period as Bryce Kakoske’s pass back to the point cleared the offensive zone and was scooped up by Cody Michelle at centre ice for a clear breakaway. The Vernon keeper just got a toe on Michelle’s low backhand attempt. Just when the play looked like it was starting to open up for Vernon in the third period, the SilverBacks struck twice in 65 seconds to ice the game. Jarryd Ten Vaanholt deflected Jayson Reardon’s powerplay point shot for the first one at 7:01. Taylor Fauchoux buried the rebound off a Brandon Mistal’s shot to complete the scoring. SNAKE BITES: The Vipers were without 20-year-olds Adam Thompson and Kyle Murphy Friday night due to injury... Thompson, Stevie Weinstein and Kakoske will serve as alternate captains this season...

Doc wants Smart approach
t was an all-star career. Two national championships. More than 500 games. Hundreds of stitches. A few shoulder separations, a broken jaw or two, and numerous ankle and knee injuries. No goals, just plenty of clutch assists. After 11 years as doctor for the B.C. Hockey League Vernon Vipers, Gavin Smart won't be volunteering his free nights at Wesbild Centre any longer. He was planning to retire anyways, but being shabbily mistreated after he treated a Salmon Arm SilverBack Kevin Mitchell player last January in Vernon sealed the deal. He leaves the Vipers and the league in hopes no player will ever return to the ice after being told by a physician to put on civvies. The player sustained a concussion and multiple facial lacerations. At the intermission, Smart advised the Salmon Arm coach and trainer the player had sustained a significant head injury with concussion and should not return to hockey until symptom-free and cleared by the Silverbacks' team physician in the days to come. The visiting player returned to play after Dr. Smart placed 20 stitches into his face to close three separate gaping lacerations. Smart said another Silverback was in the dressing room after being assessed a fighting major after the hit. Smart said the injured player appeared dazed and vacant, but he did tell Smart he had suffered a significant head injury with concussion in 2007. As Smart prepared to start suturing the player, the first period ended and the SilverBack coach entered the dressing room. After being advised by Smart that the injured player pack up his gear, and being told that another player had questioned his authority and expertise, the coach "became defensive and the subsequent tone of our interaction became confrontational." Smart, realizing the American player would face a hefty bill at the hospital, fin-

ished stitching his face. He didn't bill the SilverBacks for his medical supplies. Smart, a 52-year-old father of two, was dumbfounded when he saw the injured Salmon Arm player back on the ice. He wrote letters and sent video of the play to the league. "Concussion is the most serious injury in sports," Smart told me in an interview two weeks ago. "You have to protect your head. When the head's been rattled, it leads to other problems like depression, booze and drugs. These are huge issues." Smart has given two presentations on concussions to large groups of physicians the past two years, using BCHL case histories. He studies the injury seriously. Smart, in his letter to the BCHL, said he believes the primary factor driving players to return to play inappropriately is intimidation by coaches, either directly or indirectly by the attitudes created in each dressing room. The league never responded to Smart's letter last May where he asked why the BCHL had not dealt with the incident. I talked to league president John Grisdale this week and he says the "letter was buried in other mail" but that he had reprimanded the SilverBacks. "I dealt with it with the Salmon Arm team" said Grisdale. "We don't expect our physicians not to be heard. Obviously, our office can't enforce whether a player returns to the ice or not. He's (Smart) volunteered in our league for so long and we have to respect him and we have to make sure our physicians are honoured. How he was treated is unacceptable." Grisdale said the league is doing its best to ensure its players are protected, using the new Canadian Junior A Hockey League Supplement whereby coaches sign a code of conduct. Grisdale said he will visit teams to explain the new standards. The Junior A Supplement has been created to protect junior-aged hockey players by addressing actions such as blows to the head, dangerous hits, accumulated major penalties and misconducts and instigating and unnecessary fighting. It builds on the progressive regulations undertaken over the past decade by
Dominick Hodges fired two goals and an assist as the Sicamous Eagles doubled the North Okanagan Knights 6-3 to open the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League regular season Friday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Trailing by two midway through the first period, the Knights equalized on goals by Patrick Chore (powerplay) and Karson Holt. Assists went to T.J. Dumonceaux, Eric Chore and Brendan Jost. Sicamous then went on a three-goal run before Quinn Gallacher, assisted by Dumonceaux, rounded out the Knightsâ€™ scoring midway through the third period. North Okanagan outshot the Eagles 47-32. â€œAll three of our goals came from a good solid effort in front of the net,â€? said Knightsâ€™ head coach Sylvain Leone, who was impressed with his clubâ€™s commitment to back checking. â€œWe just gave them a lot of opportunities and
they capitalized on them. We need to be responsible with the puck in the neutral zone and make sure we get it deep.â€?

the participating leagues and branches to reduce bullying and violence from Junior A Hockey in Canada. "We want to get rid of the staged fights and bullying and violence," said Grisdale, noting the Vipers were last in the league in fighting majors last year." "We also want to get rid of the high hits to the head which lead to concussions." Grisdale said of the league's top-six teams last season, four were listed near the bottom in scraps. Viper head coach/GM Mark Ferner said Smart provided invaluable service. "We joked the first year we won (Royal Bank Cup) he was our playoff MVP we had so many kids with nagging injuries. We were very lucky to have Gavin. I'm just a hockey coach. We have a responsibility to the kids and their parents to never put a kid in a situation where he could get hurt, whether he thinks he's ready or not. There's a difference from playing injured and playing hurt. With concussions, if a doctor tells me he can't play, he can't play. You have to have integrity and it's not about winning at all costs and risking further injury to a kid. This should be a fun time of their lives." Ferner, while supporting the new standards, hopes to see the violent plays called for penalties on a consistent basis. Vernon opened the season without two elite players: Adam Thompson (concussion from a hit from behind) and Kyle Murphy (torn muscle in shoulder) after a high checkcharge-elbow which wasn't penalized in the preseason. Smart said Hockey Canada hands out a one-page pamphlet entitled "Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT)." Regarding return to play, the SCAT states in bold print "athletes should not be returned to play the same day of injury." Wrote Smart to the BCHL: "If the attention generated through the media by this incident influences one coach or trainer to not return a concussed player to the ice to risk further injury or empowers one player to say 'I'm not returning to play' until reevaluated and cleared to return to play by a qualified professional, I will regard my efforts to have been successful."

Cats rekindle senior program GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff
After a one-year hiatus, Panthers senior football is back at Vernon Secondary. Lacking a varsity AA program last season, the senior Cats will look to revitalize their program in the Interior Tier 2 division, which features the Westsyde Whundas of Kamloops, Mount Baker Trojans of Cranbrook and Pen-Hi Lakers. The Cats will also test the senior AA waters with exhibition games against the Fulton Maroons, South Kamloops Titans and Kalamalka Lakers. They kick off the 2010 campaign with an exhibition contest Saturday, Sept. 18 at Kal. The Panthers have just three Grade 12 students on the roster so far, but with a flock of Grade 11 students moving up from the junior program, head coach Sean Smith believes they can still be competitive. “We had a good junior team last year so Grade 11s kind of make up the bulk of the senior team,” said Smith, who coaches both junior and senior. “We still have expectations for them to do well. Even though we’re young, we’ve got a good group of kids who are leaders on the team. We’re going to get better as the year goes on... and it will pay off next year.” Smith was hoping to build on a solid aerial attack from last year’s junior squad, however quarterback Caton Garvie opted not to play this season. Instead, receiver Perry Klymchuk will fill in at QB. “I had hopes of being a strong passing team because we have three good returning receivers and what I thought was probably the best quarterback in junior last year,” said Smith, adding centre Josh Froom and receiver Brett Lemiski will be integral pieces of the Panther offence. The resulting shuffle will dilute the Cats’ attack as they don’t have a lot of depth at any one position. “Our weakness is numbers,” said Smith. “In the last week I’ve lost three or four kids who were going to start both ways for us. It has taken a big hit on our depth, but

ROGER KNOX/MORNING STAR
Okanagan X-treme Lacrosse League commissioner Garnet States (front) presents the league’s top scorer and MVP award to Shane Sargent (back left) of the Vernon Tigers, and the top goaltender honour to Chad Pieper of the Armstrong Shamrocks at the Wesbild Centre.
Mark DeVolder makes his living as a keynote speaker. On Thursday night, he was a keynote striker, scoring three times and making stellar runs all night as Kal Tire slammed Westside 8-1 in Okanagan Men’s 50+ Soccer League action at Marshall Field #3. DeVolder earned the East Side Mario's Man of the Match as the Tiremen improved to 17-2-2. Ken James also pulled the hat trick, while Jan Hubert scored twice for Kal Tire. Neil Corless of Westside banged home his own rebound after his second-half penalty shot was stopped by Gord Campbell.

MLA believes HST referendum has ‘merit’ JEREMY DEUTSCH Black Press
Though the NDP has designs on sending the anti-HST petition to a vote in the Legislature, the chairman of the committee deciding its fate might have other plans. Terry Lake, Kamloops-North Thompson Liberal MLA and chairman of the standing
committee on government initiatives, won’t say what he would like to see done with the petition, but he said he and his fellow Liberal MLAs feel a referendum has “merit.” “There’s a lot to be said — in the face of the information and misinformation — going to the people and having an opportunity to present a case on either side,” he
The Corporation of the
City of Vernon
said. “Those who say, ‘You should represent the views of the people,’ certainly one way to get the view of the people is to ask them directly.” Lake said he’s fielded calls and e-mails from constituents who signed the anti-HST petition, but claim they were given misinfor-
mation and now have a different opinion on the tax since it came into effect on July 1. “The reality is, 18.6 per cent of eligible British Columbians signed a petition over a fairly extensive period of time. Perhaps that reflects the view of most British Columbians, but I think it would be wrong of me to assume that is the case,” he said.

Melissa Minchillo and Douglas Ratcliffe
-INCHILLO 2ATCLIFFE Gordon and Loni Moore, of Enderby, and Pat and Dayle Thornton, of Tappen, are happy to announce the marriage of Shawn Moore and Jeff Thornton. Jeff and Shawn were married on June 26th, 2010, in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Armstrong Memorial Park. Family members and close friends witnessed the exchange of vows by Jeff and Shawn. After the ceremony, there was a reception held at the Armstrong Curling Club. Their families wish them the very best in their future.
April 10, 2010 was the beautiful day for Kylah Jean Lloyd and Travis John Adams to exchange their wedding vows at an elegant, rustic wedding at Coldstream Ranch. Family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully decorated ranch complete with a reception and dance by the amber, glowing fireplace. The happy couple were then off to their honeymoon in Cuba. It must have been meant to be, that fender bender, where they met. Some say unfortunate accident; others say fate and where love made its â€œdent.â€? Cameron and Susan Lloyd, and Brien and Marci Adams, parents of the happy couple, wish them a life full of love and happiness.
Douglas Ratcliffe married Melissa Minchillo May 15, 2010 in a beautiful afternoon ceremony at the historic Dundurn Castle, on the shores of Lake Ontario. A reception with dinner and dance followed at Glendale Golf and Country Club in Hamilton, with master of ceremony Carmen Alfano, Doug and Melissaâ€™s good friend. Melissa was attended by her sisters Melynda and Meganne Minchillo, of Hamilton, and Dougâ€™s younger sister, Cleveland Fennell, of Vernon. Doug was attended by his brother Matt Warren, of Kelowna, and good friends Dennis Singh, of Hamilton, and Beau Jackson, of Kelowna. Doug and Melissa enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in Rome, Italy before returning to Hamilton were they live and work. Proud parents are Pat Ratcliffe, of Armstrong, and Jim Ratcliffe, of Kelowna, as well as Mary Lynne and Mike Minchillo, of Hamilton, Ont. We wish Doug and Melissa a life full of love and happiness.

Volunteers play critical role Q: CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
Whether they’re working in the garden, answering the phone, fundraising, or sharing time with clients, volunteers help keep Hospice House a pleasant place to be. Volunteers are always happy to encourage anyone with an interest in hospice work to find out more about the programs and how they can give their skills and time. “I wanted to do some volunteer work and I heard such positive things about Hospice House that I thought it would be some place I would like to be. And it is. It’s a happy place to be,” said Francine Runge, who took the volunteer training program earlier this year. “The training was wonderful, thorough, engaging, informative and appropriate. The facilitator was excellent. I’ve learned so much and since I love to be with people, this is a perfect fit for me. I encourage my friends to volunteer but I know that other volunteer opportunities are better for some people.” The training covers a variety of topics, including grief and bereavement, communication skills, family dynamics, spirituality, illness and medications. Volunteers work with a mentor and can always call on the professional staff members to answer questions. Brenda Cumming has been a volunteer for three years. “Two things I find
CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR
Volunteers Francine Runge (left) and Brenda Cumming check which clients want visits as they start their shift at Hospice House. fascinating here are when a clients asks you for something, you never have to say no, if the request is at all possible. They ask for things like having their bed out in the garden, to have their dog on the bed and to have a glass of wine. The other thing is that it is very satisfying to help people in the last weeks, days and hours of their lives. You can do for them what you’d like to have done for you,” she said. “You have to be prepared for emotions to run high in the training because you talk about your own feelings about death. You learn how you will react in different circumstances. I find I spend as much time helping the families as the clients.” Volunteers have a choice of working with clients in the house or in the community in several programs. The office and garden volunteers do not have to take the train-
ing but can do an orientation at any time. Anyone is welcome to do the orientation to see if they feel the longer training is suitable for them or not. “There is not one program or service at the Hospice Society that does not have a volunteer component to it. We rely heavily on our volunteers to make this a truly community service. We have many businesses, organizations and individuals that do fundraising
for us and we appreciate that way of being a volunteer,” said Ruth Edwards, financial officer. Rylan Sandberg, coordinator of volunteer services, added, “Our volunteers represent the community because they are from all backgrounds and ages, the oldest are in their 90s. We have some volunteers whose employers allow them work time to do the training and their volunteer community service and we’d

Not exactly, dogs see the world in two colors, where as people see it in three. Everything a dog sees are in shades of yellow and blue, so while they can see a tree, they can’t pick up the cherries. As it so happens, the most popular color for dog toys among consumers is usually bright shades of red or safety orange, so throwing a toy into the ﬁeld makes it hard for your dog to ﬁnd it. In a dog’s eyes it is the same as the grass, only darker. So when Lassie runs by it, it’s not that she’s dumb, she just can’t she it. — Dr. Miles Latwat

This is newsworthy?
ho is Pastor Terry Jones? A faith leader or a maniac? How did this fellow get to be the lead news story on every American channel, have the president of the U.S., our prime minster and other world leaders sending him messages either directly or through the media that he is walking a dangerous path. What a frightening concept that this man who gets this idea that he will recognize the anniversary of the destruction of the two towers in New York City by burning 100 copies of the Koran as a public event If a Muslim faith leader was to do the same act and Michele Blais threaten to burn 100 bibles in a public event, Christians, especially in the states would be furious. Will he still stand so smugly if people are killed, if there are riots, devestation caused by his actions? Religious bigotry is very dangerous. A bonfire of old letters, papers, perhaps journals can be healing. I know having done this myself as an act of closure and watching the flames turn the words on the pages to ashes was helpful to me, the burning was a cleansing. Was this the intention here to burn the Koran as a cleanse? Scary. What is scary is that this fellow with this bizarre idea is newsworthy around the world, is putting Americans at risk in foreign countries, has resulted in a travel warning for Americans being issued. “Irreperable damage will be caused” the news is saying. He says now that it is because he wants the plans to build a new mosque in New York city changed so that it is not within two blocks of Ground Zero. Even Donald Trump weighed in on that one
THE WAY I SEE IT
offering to buy the land at a 25 per cent profit for the group and find them other property. Was every Muslim in New York City, New York state, the U.S., the world connected to 9/11? Were not millions of Muslims devastated by that act of violence? Why is everyone grouped together? Because of fear, because of not understanding? The first amendment that allows the burning, also allows the building. We have moved forward as a society in so many ways and in so many ways we are still struggling. From my lounge chair position I see a double standard. The Terry Jones of our world have two sets of rules, one for the people he is familiar and comfortable with and one for others. This is the danger of living in a world where it is so easy to spread information through the Internet, Facebook, YouTube, the media. His 15 minutes of fame are up, and quite frankly I think I would be a bit frightened if I was Terry Jones. We have been living without TV for the summer while we are renovating our home and I am not keeping up to world events. This has had its charm so this story surprised me, and has saddened at the same time. This must be so frustrating for the men and women who put themselves out there on a daily basis as soldiers, peacekeepers, and then some confused individual gets a strange idea and runs with it. Jones is dangerous and at the moment regrettably in a position of power, fleeting though it may be. He has had the power of holding the world media to his attention, and he likes it. What is scary is his church is expanding now with others who support his idea and if Terry Jones can capture the world, what will the next person do?

EDITOR: KRISTIN FRONEMAN
Tribute act is not all about the ‘80s Blaze of Glory brings 30 years of Bon Jovi hits to Vernon KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
Ask Ted Moore if he has ever donned tight spandex pants or sported a poodle mullet, and he can’t help but laugh. It’s not that strange of a question when you consider who the man plays for a living. Long compared to Jon Bon Jovi –– not only in his singing style and on-stage performance, but also for his marked resemblance to the famous New Jersey rocker –– Moore’s fashion sense, like the real Bon Jovi, has come a long way since the ‘80s. “The cheese factor was quite high then. It was part of the times, and now is considered kitschy, but he’s moved far away from that now,” said Moore, who sings in the Bon Jovi tribute act Blaze of Glory. About to play a dance in Vernon, Blaze of Glory is the real deal. There are no wigs. And yes, Moore can hit all those high notes from the band’s massive hit Livin’ on a Prayer. “As players, singers and showmanship, we’re more from the Keep the Faith days in ‘94 and ‘95’s Live at Wembley to It’s My Life from Crush in 2000. That’s the look of our group visually, but we play all the big hits from the ‘80s,” said Moore, adding the songs go back to Bon Jovi’s first big single, 1980’s Runaway, to their 2006 country hit, Who Says You Can’t Go Home. “They are the only band in rock history that has had a number one hit on the country charts,” said Moore, who has done a lot of research on the man he plays, even checking out Bon Jovi’s filmography. “The guy’s been on about 12 to 15 films and he even played Ally McBeal’s love interest on TV.” A professional musician since he performed in the Toronto revue act Teen Angel and the Rockin’ Rebels as a teenager, Moore has met his fair share of professional musicians, so it wasn’t too much of a struggle when he tracked down the fellow players for Blaze of Glory. Formed in late-2008, the band features guitarist Randy Robertson (as Richie Sambora), bassist Mike Champigny (Hugh McDonald), keyboardist James Meyer (David Bryan) and drummer Doug Grant (Tico Torres), who all have an uncanny resemblance to the Bon Jovi members they play.
Blaze of Glory’s guitarist Randy Robertson (left, as Richie Sambora), bassist Mike Champigny (Hugh McDonald), vocalist Ted Moore (Jon Bon Jovi), keyboardist James Meyer (David Bryan) and drummer Doug Grant (Tico Torres) perform their Bon Jovi tribute at the Vernon Lodge Saturday. But what matters more, is they actually can play, and have previously performed in such bands as Doug and the Slugs, Prism, Nick Gilder and Krome. “There is no karaoke or backing tracks in our music,” said Moore. “We exude the energy the band had in its prime. We dress the part, but more importantly, we play the part.” There’s also a local connection, as drummer Doug Grant comes from a long line of drummers, including his dad Doug Grant Sr., who is based in Armstrong, and sister Carolyn, who is organizing the event here in Vernon. “This is cool for Doug. There will be at least 25 to 30 people coming that he knows. It’ll be a family night for them,” said Moore. With gigs as far away as Trinidad, where Blaze of Glory flew out to the Caribbean

nation and back in a matter of days, to shows in Las Vegas and an opening slot for metal band Steel Panther at the Key Club on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard, it sometimes feels like the tribute band is living on the same prayer as their heroes. “That was Bon Jovi’s MO (modus operandi.) They flew all over the world to do shows, then back... I’m glad that didn’t happen to me. Back when I was in a lot of bands, yes, I wanted that, but now I have a wife and two kids, it would be too hard,” said Moore, who is based in Chillwack. And with Bon Jovi closing in on 50, Moore isn’t surprised to see the love for the man and his band continue. “We’ve been so lucky. The reaction has been positive with people in the industry and fans,” said Moore. “We recently played

at Sun Peaks resort in Kamloops and there were both babies and older ladies in the audience, and they knew all the words to the hits, especially Livin’ on a Prayer from Slippery When Wet.” Even the man who produced that multiplatinum album, Vancouver’s Bob Rock, has given the A-OK to Blaze of Glory. “I used to play in a band with Bob Rock’s brother. I don’t know if he knows what we are doing, but Bob knows about us and has given us the go ahead,” said Moore.

B6 Sunday, September 12, 2010 - The Morning Star
It’s hard to love this assassin spy fare. There aren’t many twists or surprises in The American, only contemplative maneuvers from the kind of character who usually doesn’t sit still for this long. It’s smart to be sure, yet awfully restrained. Perhaps I’m slightly disappointed because I’m just not used to it. The feature is currently playing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Local studio enters the roaring ‘20s Morning Star Staff
The Ver non Community Music School’s Lights of Broadway musical theatre studio has just received the rights to stage the 2004 Tony Award-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie in 2011. Expected to take the stage at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre May 6 and 7, Millie is full of energized, bright dance numbers that were written for the stage and will have everyone doing the Charleston, said Lights of Broadway founding director Charity Van Gameren. “We are very excited about presenting this 1920s’ musical that took Broadway by storm and won eight Tony awards including Best Musical,” she said. “Being a director gives me the opportunity to create something new and expand my artistic flair each year with each new show. So it is with anticipation and excitement that we begin our 10th season.” For the past decade, Lights of Broadway has been bringing the North Okanagan a fully-staged Broadway production in the spring. The group has just come off of a successful season that saw sold-out performances of its highly-acclaimed presentation of The Sound of Music. Other past productions have included The Wizard of Oz, Pippi Longstocking, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Wiz, Peter Pan and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. “This being our 10th anniversary season, I took a little trip down memory lane. I filed through photos, read reviews and read notes of gratitude and appreciation from cast members and audience members,” said Van Gameren. “Students who laid the groundwork in those early years are now returning from university
and abroad each spring just to see our productions.” Van Gameren also attributes the productions’ successes to her family who have given her endless years of support, her righthand woman Karina
Hettler, who has choreographed all the dance routines, as well as families within the program that have gone above and beyond the call of duty to see the shows come to life. “Lights has always been and will continue
to be about showcasing the amazing talent that lies right here in the North Okanagan. We give everything we have for the sheer delight of performing and the excitement that a live performance
gives our appreciative audiences,” she said. “We are so thankful for the amazing support we have felt from the community because that is what community theatre is all about.”

Hydro teams up with electric tour Morning Star Staff
BC Hydro will soon be joining the likes of Petro Canada and Chevron in fueling the automotive industry. As the push towards hybrid and full-electric vehicle technology continues, Hydro will play an increasing role as the primary electricity producer in the province. That is why they signed on as the key provincial sponsor for Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada’s 28-day Clean Across Canada Tour. Highlighted by the Japanese manufacturer’s latest zero-emission, full-electric offering, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, the tour reached Vernon on day 24 of a 28-day tour Thursday morning at the BC Hydro office on Kalamalka Lake Road. The i-MiEV (Mitsubishi in-wheel motor Electric Vehicle) team started in Cape Spear, Nfld., North America’s most easterly point, on Aug. 17. Revelstoke was the first of six stops in B.C. Other tour stops in B.C. include Abbotsford, Surrey and Victoria. After covering approximately 7,500 kilometres, the tour will conclude Monday in Vancouver at the annual EV 2010 VÉ Conference and Trade Show. “Electric vehicles are coming and they have the potential to revolutionize the transportation industry while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Dave Cobb, BC Hydro’s president and CEO. “We are particularly interested in highlighting clean energy options – like electric vehicles – that we know are of great interest to our GRAEME CORBETT/MORNING STAR customers and their desire to use energy Lara Brown, Mitsubishi Canada’s public relations manager, plugs an electric charger into the i-MiEV during the company's Clean Across Canada Tour efficiently.

Enderby wants wood
Trico takes Tuscany to The Rise
Morning Star Staff
Trico Communities has secured a 12-unit duplex villa site in The Rise in Vernon. Development plans are currently being completed with construction to begin later this year when permits are finalized. Possessions of the homes will be available in spring 2011. Vista Lago will be built with estate-level finishings, spa-inspired en suites, fully developed basements, outdoor living spaces and full land-
The policy has the full support of the Enderby Chamber of Commerce. “By giving favourable consideration to design proposals which maximize the use of locally sourced wood and wood products, the City of Enderby will encourage contractors to explore local supply opportunities and utilize local knowledge and innovation, which will develop new supply chains and product advancements of benefit to the local economy,” said Tate Bengston, executive director. Bengston also believes the bylaw compliments the city’s climate action initiatives. “The cumulative environmental impact of using wood is a 60 per cent carbon impact improvement over 120 years. As a renewable resource, using wood as the primary building material makes sense in terms of sustainability,” he said.
Diversity key to growth Chartered Accountants of BC
According to a new report by the Chartered Accountants of BC, the ripple effect of the recession and commodities downturn was widespread, affected many industries, and led to the loss of thousands of jobs. The report, BC Check-Up, Provincial Edition, also found that in order for B.C.’s economy to increase its resilience to future commodity downturns, as well as achieve longterm, sustainable growth, the export base needs to be diversified and productivity improved. “In the years leading up to the recession, vigorous economic activity in the province was fuelled by strong commodities exports, consumer spending, and a robust construction sector. The result was a massive five-year build up of jobs (196,700). In absolute terms, B.C.’s job creation almost matched that of Ontario (209,600), which has a labour force triple the size of B.C.’s,” said Richard Rees, FCA, CEO of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of BC. “This growth came to a crashing halt in 2009, when B.C. lost almost 55,000 jobs, and experienced one of the sharpest rates of job loss in Canada.” Almost half the jobs lost (23,600) were in manufacturing, many of which were in traditional resourcebased commodities. Another quarter of job losses (12,800) were lost in transportation and warehousing, due to a decline in freight shipments at ports, airports, road and rail.
According to the report, these job losses were driven by a massive 25 per cent decline in the value of exports in 2009. The forest products sector, which accounts for one third of B.C.’s total exports, declined by 24 per cent; the energy sector saw its total export value plunge 30 per cent; metallic minerals were down 25 per cent; fabricated metal declined 32 per cent; and machinery and equipment dipped 19 per cent. In 2009, B.C.’s economy contracted 2.4 per cent, but, by the first half of 2010, it was growing again. Both export values and the number of jobs were up. In May 2010, the value of exports was 30.8 per cent higher when compared to May 2009; and, between February and June 2010, the total number of employed was, on average, 1.9 per cent higher than in the same time period in 2009. “What the report highlights is the cyclical nature of B.C.’s economy, due to our dependence on resource industries. We also have an economy that lags in productivity,” said Rees. “Growing other export sectors, such as tradable services, and continuing to invest in education and infrastructure are two things we can do to ensure long-term economic sustainability and improve living standards. One thing that will help is the HST. This tax change gives some B.C. businesses and industries breathing room during a downturn, and frees up capital that can be reinvested in machinery and equipment and training, which is necessary to improve productivity.”

YOU AND THE LAW PLAINTIFFS SHOULD FOLLOW MEDICAL ADVICE By Janice Mucalov, LL.B. If you are hurt in an accident, you have a duty to “mitigate” (take reasonable steps to minimize) your losses relating to your injuries. The reason is to prevent you from receiving “damages” (compensation) for any losses caused by your own neglect. Typically this comes up when the defence (i.e., ICBC) claims that you ignored medical advice. They might argue that you would be much better and have recovered more quickly if you had followed your doctor’s recommendations. If they prove this, your total damages may be reduced. For example, in one case, the plaintiff chose naturopathic remedies instead of the injections and surgery recommended by three orthopedic surgeons for her injured shoulder. The court reduced her damages by 30% for her failure to mitigate.
What if you stop following the recommended medical treatment because you cannot afford it? In a recent case, an active 30-year-old apprentice plumber suffered moderate soft tissue injuries to his neck and back when his car was forcefully rear-ended. Four years after the accident, he still took narcotic painkillers for headaches and could not ski, hike, hunt, camp or do yard work as before. For 18 months after the accident, he regularly saw a physiotherapist, massage therapist and chiropractor and went to the gym almost daily. He was starting to feel stronger and better. But then ICBC stopped paying for his rehabilitation. He only earned about $30,000 a year and could not afford treatment on his own. At trial, ICBC argued he did not mitigate his losses and his damages should be reduced.
The BC Supreme Court said, however, that the assessment of whether a plaintiff has taken reasonable steps to minimize their losses depends Richard P. Barton on all the circumstances. Financial circumstances are one factor to consider. This was not a case where Take the recent case of a plaintiff the plaintiff refused to follow who suffered herniated discs in his back when he was rear-ended. The defence medical advice. argued that he failed to mitigate by not continuing to pursue the physiotherapy, massage therapy, Indeed, the plaintiff saved for an annual gym kinesiology or acupuncture three months after the membership and six months later (two years accident, as recommended. They also argued he after the accident), returned to the gym and lost should have hired a personal trainer or followed a weight. When his income increased, he also returned to massage therapy. structured exercise program. But the defence must prove that your failure or refusal to follow the recommended treatment meant you did not get better as fully or quickly as you could have.

The BC Court of Appeal decided that the defence had not proved that the plaintiff’s “less than full compliance with medical recommendations would have made any difference to his continuing disability.” Accordingly, the plaintiff’s damages of over $170,000 were not reduced.

The court decided that he did not act unreasonably in determining how best to try and pay for the treatments that had helped him, but which were no longer going to be paid for by ICBC. His total damages of over $400,000 were not cut as a result. If you are injured in an accident and entitled to damages, a lawyer can help protect your rights and obtain the best compensation for you.

ommunities would not survive if not for the efforts of volunteerism. In the Greater Vernon area, the efforts of volunteers can be seen everywhere. Look around you and study how your community ticks. Most often your daily encounters are touched by a volunteer in some capacity, but stopping to recognize these efforts is what needs to happen next. Looking back in history to 1897, volunteerism was alive and well in our region when members of the Vernon business community came together to create a chamber of commerce. It was established by the dedication and commitment of several business leaders who volunteered their time to establish an organization that would ensure a voice for the business community could be heard now and in the future. More than 100 years later, the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce is about to host its 113th annual general meeting. This business association has survived, grown and developed through the vision of our business leaders who have relentlessly volunteered their efforts. The same volunteer efforts that existed in 1897 still exist today and on Sept. 15 at the Best Western Vernon Lodge, we will see new volunteers elected to our board of directors and long-standing business leaders who have committed many years of their valuable time to create our successful operation, step away and move on to new adventures in our community.

ANDREW RENTON Special To The Morning Star
CHINA - Proud images of a country on a lightening race to modernize, spurred me into action. Is there still rural life in China or am I too late? My Vancouver friend writes Chinese guidebooks. “Great idea but how do you plan to get around?” he asks cynically over a double decaf latte. “Eastern Guizhou is a fascinating area of traditional villages and minority groups, but without a guide you’re hooped!” I soon discover that the best course of action is to look helpless. No problems there! With few exceptions Chinese people are extremely kind, good natured and proud to assist. Throw yourself at their mercy and they will rarely leave you in the lurch. My quest requires some patience and more tenacity than I had expected. The first destination, Lingyun, is a failure. Despite being touted as a great base to visit rural villages, I am greeted like a three-headed Martian looking to lunch on small children. I revert to the guidebook, and, with a renewed sense of determination, return to the bus station. The lone employee begins calmly enough. She makes a couple of phone calls. She switches from talking to writing. When I continue to shrug, she presses her pen until it pierces the paper, then defiantly hands me the note. Even an idiot “guilo” should understand this. She is already planning her escape, peering at the clock and reaching for her coat, when a voice from a passer-by asks, “Can I help?” Phew! Now armed with a ticket, and relieved smiles all around, I head to the

Continued from previous page Mr Wu is in his tiny CITS (China International Travel Service) office when I arrive. He speaks perfect English. “But, but, Lingyun is just over the mountains,” he splutters in amazement, upon hearing my story. “Where did you go?” “Haven’t a clue,” I reply. “Pretty countryside though!” “You should stay at the Ying Pan Po Hotel across the courtyard.” “At 330 Yuan ($50) its too expensive.” “Just a moment,” he says, grabbing the phone. “Would you pay 180 Yuan?” he asks, covering the receiver. “Eat on the street. Hawker food is delicious. Kaili is famous for potato pancakes and sweet peanut soup. The woman on the corner makes the best breakfast dumplings. Be there early, she always sells out” “Tomorrow there are markets in the Miao villages of Chong ‘An and Longchang. You won’t want to miss the festival at Zhouxi on Wednesday,” he adds, busily writing the Chinese/English names on the back of his business card. “Any problems, call me OK.” Wow the Holy Grail at last. I spend a week travelling by bus through magical countryside to traditional markets. My favourite is Shidong. Here, noisy vendors line the river flogging day old chicks; irate pigs bought by weight; songbirds in intricate rattan cages, as well as sacks of rice, live fish, squawking ducks and 100 year old eggs. Ferrymen do a roaring trade poling customers to and fro across the river. The trip home is slow. Maybe a thousand women are rebuilding the highway one rock at a time. A child is about to throw up. The duck takes a dump on my left foot. A piglet, stored in the aisle, is breaking free of its bamboo bonds. Duties of a rural bus

You’ll know right away where things stand, and you will better comprehend what you’re dealing with. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - It doesn’t have to be just a so-so day. Plan something serene and special to do with someone who means a lot to you, and you can turn it into a memorable time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - There is little need to be fearful of challenging conditions. In fact, they could bring out the smarts you didn’t know you possessed, to overcome opposition and/ or remove impediments. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Even though you might not be aware of it, you could have more than a few admirers observing you. This favorable impression will occur from just simply being yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - In situations where you are more motivated to achieve something than others might be, you’ll easily come out the winner. Be single-minded and keep your eyes focused on the target.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - If you care enough to be an astute observer, you can learn something about handling abrasive issues. Once you see how easy it is to be a diplomat, you’ll never resort to a negative response again. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Even though this might be a day of rest, you won’t be content with failing to utilize your time and talents productively. Plan to tackle a project or to be of service to someone who needs help. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Even if you have to take it upon yourself to make plans for the entire family, do it. Others are looking to have some fun and to do something different, but they don’t have the imagination to come up with the ideas. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - The bargains are out there if you’re inclined to go shopping, and you should be able to make some good buys. If nothing more, hitting the retail outlets could prove to be fun.
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.

H.C. Bryant, 6th Dan 35 Years Experience
Bridge by Phillip Alder Karl Kraus, an Austrian journalist, critic, playwright and poet who died in 1936, said, “A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grownup never wears out his short pants.” Today’s deal requires East to ﬁnd the ideal discard to help his side defeat three no-trump. Can you see what it will be? After North opens one club and South responds one heart, some Norths would rebid one no-trump despite the low doubleton spade. It is better to raise to two hearts. (Note that three no-trump by North fails when East leads a spade.) South rebids three no-trump, knowing that his partner will correct to
four hearts with four-card support. Against three no-trump, West leads his fourthhighest spade, the seven; and East plays his jack, the bottom of touching honors when playing third hand high. South takes the trick with his king, leads a club to dummy’s king, and returns a club. What should East discard? Why? East should start by using the Rule of Eleven. Deducting the value of his partner’s lead, seven, from 11 tells East that there are four spades higher than the seven in the North, East and South hands combined. And East has seen all four: dummy’s nine, his jack and queen, and declarer’s king. So, West’s spade suit is ready
to run. However, West does not know that, because South might have started with K-Q-x of spades. East must paint the picture for West by discarding his spade queen. Then West, when he gets in with his club trick, will cash his four spade tricks to defeat the contract.

In memory of my dad, Gerald Wayne Newcomb My dad, Gerry, will be remembered as an honestt and hard-working man with a kind smile and a quick-witted sense of humour. He was always there for me in my formative years. Some of the memories that I will forever hold dear are: summers water skiing on Kalamalka Lake; building a treehouse together; going on rides at the Armstrong Fair; playing in the swimming pool; ﬁreworks in the yard; and pretending to be pirates in Hawaiian caves. As I grew older, my dad taught me to have the courage to be strong and stand up for myself. Although we did not always see eye to eye, I know he did his best and he knew that his lessons helped me to handle life’s challenges. While he may have doubted himself at times, he made a positive difference in this world and will never be forgotten by those who loved him. We fear not the distant shore since he we loved has gone before.
