Man reports marijuana theft CHERYL WIERDA Black Press

A Lake Country man who was the victim of theft over the weekend reported the crime to RCMP — despite the fact the item that was stolen isn’t considered legal in Canada. Jim Watson says he awoke on Sunday morning and discovered that one of his marijuana plants, grown behind a hedge on an Okanagan Centre property, had been clipped. “It wasn’t sheared. It was cut by a tool of some kind,” said Watson. Watson, who has been growing outside on the property for at least two years, said he had seven marijuana plants. Wanting his stolen plant back, Watson called the Lake Country RCMP on Monday to report the theft — even though it is illegal to grow marijuana plants in Canada.

SEAN CONNOR/BLACK PRESS

Jim Watson reported to police that thieves stole one of his pot plants from his Lake Country garden. “It’s a job on them,” he said in way of explaining why he reported the theft. “It was a job on me.” For Sgt. Rick McIsaac, a 29-year veteran of

63(&,$/ 385&+$6( ,0*5HOD[HU&KDLUV1RZ,Q6WRFN

the RCMP, the crime report is a first. “This is the first time I’ve ever had anyone report the theft of their marijuana,” said McIsaac. Officers dealing with the call cut down the remaining marijuana plants, aside from one plant, but decided not to charge Watson for growing and possessing the illegal plants. “In talking with him…and evaluating the circumstances as a whole, it’s not in the public interest to charge him,” said McIsaac. Police have also closed the investigation into who took the marijuana, saying: “There’s nothing to further our investigation.” While Watson, who has his suspicions about who stole his marijuana, is a “little disappointed” that the RCMP seized his plants after he reported the theft, he’s not letting that get him down. “There’s always another year,” he said.

Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes insists he was representing a majority of his constituents when he voted to scrap the long-gun registry. The contentious national program narrowly escaped being abolished in a 153-151 vote in the House of Commons Wednesday. It largely pitted the Conservative governColin Mayes ment against the opposition parties. “We didn’t really lose anything because we voted the way we said we would,” said Mayes. “The losers are the ones who said one thing to their constituents and did another.” Mayes believes the opinion of OkanaganShuswap residents about the registry was clear. “They are tired of harassment from the registry and they feel like they are the criminals,” he said of residents who own long-guns. “I get 14,300 e-mails a year into my office and there was only one letter (in support of the registry).” The registry has cost about $2 billion since it was created, and Mayes points to a 2006 auditor general’s report which stated the program was wasteful and ineffective. “The money would be better spent on police and enforcement than registering hunters and farmers,” he said. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has indicated that the fight over the registry isn’t over, and Mayes agrees. However, he isn’t sure if the government will bring forward another bill to eliminate it. “We will probably see an election before another vote in the House on the registry. It will be an election issue in ridings where constituents were misled by their current MPs,” said Mayes. Opposition parties have called for changes to the registry in an attempt to address concerns about it, but Mayes says the government is not willing to entertain amendments. “Personally, that’s as far as we’re willing to go. It was reasonable,” he said of the nowdefeated bill.

Motorist collides with new legislation Morning Star Staff

A 45-year-old Coldstream man has become familiar with B.C.’s new impaired driving laws. On Monday, at about 6:40 p.m., a Vernon RCMP officer issued the man a three-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) for driving with a blood-alcohol level of more than .05. Under the new rules, which went into effect that day, the man’s vehicle was impounded for three days and he was given a $200 penalty. “This driver was the first

Tuesday, at 2:40 p.m., a member of the RCMP’s Integrated Road Safety Unit stopped what turned out to be a company vehicle on Highway 6 for a traffic infrac-

tion. “The operator of this vehicle was the same man, now operating another vehicle less than 24 hours later while under the three-day prohibition that had been issued the day before,� said Molendyk. The company vehicle the man was driving was impounded for seven days. The driver will be appearing in court at a later date on charges of driving while prohibited. No alcohol was involved in the second incident.

officers can conduct a field sobriety test. If a hunter’s blood alcohol level is above .05 milligrams, they’ll have to surrender their firearms and licences for 24 hours. Officers are increasingly coming across vehicles on backroads with open alcohol in them. “It’s a $250 fine for the driver if you’re caught with open alcohol in a vehicle,� said Lockwood. “Lots of bad decisions are made while hunting and consuming alcohol, everything from forgetting to unload your firearm, loading a firearm in a vehicle and not being able to properly identify the species your shooting at. “We encourage hunters if you’re going to participate in alcohol, do it after the day’s hunt, not while doing it.� Conservation officers can issue Motor Vehicle Act violations, and that includes the

ATVs or unlicensed vehicles on forest service roads must have a $250,000 public liability insurance policy which people must carry and produce if asked to do so by an officer.

A Vernon man who pled guilty to dangerous operation of a motor vehicle won’t be able to drive for the next year. Justin Ross Glinsbockel, 20, pleaded guilty to the charge in Vernon Provincial Court Monday. He was given a one-year driving prohibition and was fined $1,500. Crown counsel stayed two

charges of impaired driving against Glinsbockel, who was behind the wheel of a green GMC pick-up in March 2009 that struck two parked vehicles, and the impact of one collision pushed one of the parked vehicles into a third vehicle. The incident happened near 46th Avenue, by Hunter’s Store. Glinsbockel suffered a non-lifethreatening head injury in the crash.

Fire boat placed on backburner RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A contentious fire boat won’t be acquired this year, but plans continue to ignite heated debate among North Westside Road residents. The Central Okanagan Regional District board has decided not to purchase a mobile water supply boat but it will be considered among other fire department priorities during 2011-2015 budget talks. “For me, it was a financial issue. The decision was made in light of the cost,” said Jim Edgson, North Westside director. CORD had $150,000

“The decision was made in light of the cost.” — Jim Edgson set aside to purchase the vessel, but all responses to a request for proposals were over budget. It’s believed the boat could cost about $196,000, with $50,000 needed for a boat house. Edgson says the next step is for the regional district to determine the long-term needs for the North Westside Fire Department and whether the fire boat is included.

“There’s no guarantee it will rise to the top,” he said. Fire chief Wayne Carson isn’t surprised by CORD’s decision, but he insists the need for a mobile water supply boat is increasing. “It’s absolutely the top priority for this community,” he said. “A lot of areas don’t have water systems rated (they don’t meet insurance requirements

for flows) and there are single accesses to properties and dead trees all over.” Because of limited road access to some areas, Carson believes a house fire or wildfire poses a significant risk. “We’re trying to elevate the level of protection,” he said. Acquisition of the boat has been opposed by the North Westside Ratepayers Association. “We would have been more pleased if the regional district motion said the fire boat won’t proceed but it says it won’t proceed in 2010. It’s not over yet,” said president Diane Baldwin. “Instead of looking

at a five-year plan, they need to look at whether there is a necessity for this fire boat.” The association believes other methods could be used to fight fires in the community. “To buy a piece of equipment for a whatif situation is extravagant,” said Baldwin, adding that taxes have been climbing for North Westside residents. “A lot of people are on fixed budgets and for a lot of people, the situation is getting critical.”

Police discover 3,993 marijuana plants Morning Star Staff

A large marijuana grow operation near Falkland has been shut down by RCMP. Police, assisted by members of the SouthEast District’s drug unit, combined forces special enforcement unit and North Okanagan Traffic Services, executed a search warrant in the 6000 block of Six Mile Creek Road. Officers arrested two people shortly after entering the property. A 34-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman with addresses from Falkland and the Lower Mainland were returned to the police office. The search resulted in some dried marijuana and 3,993 plants being seized from the property. More than 3,000 of these plants were clones. Investigating officers believe that this operation was largely set up

to produce clones from mother plants and then be sold or moved to other operations else-

where. Both people are expected to face charges of possession for the

purposes of trafficking and production under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Buy me a smoke?

I

t was a moral dilemma. I was walking my dog, sweet Sugar, not far from a convenience store when a group of teenagers approached me. They could have been anyone’s kids, well-dressed, laughing and talking among themselves. They slowed down when they approached me and I thought they were going to pet the dog. A pretty girl put out her hand with a $10 bill folded in it and asked softly, “Could you buy me some smokes, please?” I responded, “No, I won’t. Sorry.” “OK,” she said pleasantly and one of her companions wished me a nice walk. Cara Brady My response, of course, was the right one. This girl was too young to buy cigarettes and if I had bought them for her I would have been breaking the law. But, wellmeaning laws aside, was it the kindest and most constructive response? This girl had obviously had enough access to cigarettes to want more. Was her desire to enjoy a cigarette at that moment any less valid than my desire to enjoy a chocolate bar, which I was doing? I could have bought the smokes for her and we would have all been happy for the length of time happiness from these things lasts. While there are many good reasons not to smoke and the anti-smoking campaigners have done everyone a favour in encouraging people to stop smoking, mostly from social pressure, it seems, smoking is not a sin or character flaw, or a crime. I think people who smoke have a habit which they may or may not want to get rid of and I know that it is hard for many people to stop. My father smoked heavily (Players, navy cut – the smell of a freshly lit cigarette still reminds me of him) for many years and sometimes my mother would have a cigarette after dinner. I tried smoking briefly when I was in university because in those ancient days it was considered sophisticated (Holly Golightly and her long cigarette holder) but never liked it that much, not enough to justify the cost which could have gone to other necessities, like clothes and shoes.

It’s only the people to smoke with blatant disregard for others that I have a problem with. Now, I actually feel sorry for the people sneaking off like criminals to find a spot to smoke, especially in freezing temperatures. It was very sad to see patients in hospital gowns with IVs shivering outside the hospital for a comforting smoke. I wonder how this girl started smoking – peer pressure, a way to look older and cooler, a way to relieve stress, her parents’ smoking habits? I wish I had a chance to talk to the girl about the choice but she wouldn’t heed anything I said, and she likely knew all the reasons why she shouldn’t smoke and the consequences before she made her choice. I would have told her to think about her health, of course, and how it would affect the children she will have in the future. I would have told her that smoking would affect her looks, even at a young age, and make her age more quickly. I would have told her about the smoking cessation programs there are in some high schools. But she knows that, too. Most of all, I would have told her that by refusing to buy the cigarettes for her, I was not judging her but acting in accordance with my belief in the rule of law of our country, even when the law is unenforceable and does not really make any sense. In obeying the letter of the law, did I express societal disapproval and reinforce her idea that old people do not understand or care about the young? Is there anything that I, as an individual could do to help? Should she have the right to choose to smoke? She looked old enough to drive a car, a more lethal weapon. I know that there must be laws to protect youth until they are old enough to make their own, well-informed choices but the tobacco sales ban for youth is one law that is not working. Surely it would make more sense to be addressing this as a health and social issue rather than a criminal one. Until the time that there are no smokers, not because it is illegal but because people make an informed choice not to smoke, we can do what we can to support smoking education and cessation programs. It will take time but the time will come when smoking is nothing more than a funny, oldfashioned habit that is of no interest to anyone.

There’s a reason why people of this region don’t pay much attention to the goings-on in Ottawa. Of course it’s thousands of miles away geographically, and, if this week is any indication (and it is), it’s millions of miles away in any real sense of what’s on the minds of British Columbians. A much-hyped close vote in the House of Commons shot down an attempt to kill the federal long-gun registry. However the Tory government is hoping this ‘setback’ can be turned into a ‘victory’ with the people, oh, say, come election time. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, looking dutifully upset, claimed he would never “rest” in overturning this injustice and claimed “opposition to the long-gun registry is stronger in this country than it has ever been.” Come again? Briefly surveying the letters to the editor that have run recently in this paper and the stack that have yet to run, and after subtracting the ones on the HST, healthcare, the economy, circus bans, recall, education etc., the rest, indeed, are on the long-gun registry. That would be a single letter. Gee, some avalanche of public interest. Of course, thanks to the PM, there now will be more as he tries to make it an issue for political gain, rather than trying to find some compromise that makes sense and at least attempts to get something of use out of all those billions of dollars already invested on our behalf. But most Canadians will just shake their heads, wish MPs were more focused on good governance than phoney party issues to spark unnecessary and unwanted elections, and get on with their lives. And, sadly, that includes ignoring the sound and fury that emanates from Parliament Hill.

Education minister misses mark

I

am disappointed in many of the statements made by Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid in an interview with Tom Fletcher as printed in The Morning Star on Sept. 8. In particular, the honourable MacDiarmid glossed over a major flaw in the education system: the government legislated class size and composition with little or no regard to reality in today’s classrooms. The students identified by Individual Education Plans (IEP’s) often have very good support, although they are stretched thin. Most classroom teachers will tell you that it is not these children alone who make the learning conditions less than ideal for every child in the room. There are many ‘unidentified’ children who we call ‘grey area’ children who have many learning needs that are difficult to meet. To try to put blame on the BC Teachers’ Federation for taking away resources by filing grievances is really quite preposterous. From the 2006–07 and 2007–08 school years teachers grieved 546 classes from the 2006–07 school year, and 1,122 classes from the 2007–08 school year that violated the limits set by government legislation. BUS CAMPAIGN I was reading with interest your information last week regarding the possibility of an expanded bus route, once the infrastructure work is completed in our lovely town. We seniors are lucky to have the buses during the day. Many of us are unable to drive at night, or are restricted to being pedestrians, because of age or medical conditions. I am on a one-man campaign to drum up business for a few late night buses to get me back home before 11 p.m. We old girls do not go to bed at 7 p.m. We gad about all over the place way past dark. The bridge players are the worst. Our grandchildren have to stay up till 10 p.m. just to be able to fetch granny home before midnight, as the kids have to get up in the morning to go to school, the poor things. On behalf of myself, and many other old girls, may we please request a couple of transit buses

By agreement between the two sides, the arbitration only looked at a small number of representative cases. These grievances are for the most extreme cases where class limits were exceeded. The data presented by the minister of education show 3,229 class-size violations with more than 30 students for the 2009–10 school year. That is down a mere 100 classes from 2008–09, but still higher than 2007–08 when there were 3,179 violations. The numbers show the government has failed to make any progress. Of greater concern are the numbers around class composition, the term used

with a nice happy driver, to pick us up and bring us back into the depot. I can visualize a couple of tables with eight chairs, and perhaps the Backyard Band......... the possibilities are endless. Can you hear me, BC Transit? Jacqueline Jones BOAT LAUNCH As a resident of the Kalavista area, I witness daily the constant and continuing chaos, confusion, traffic jams, near head-on collisions, pedestrians nearly hit by vehicles, yelling frustrated boaters, families walking with strollers and small children nearly being hit by vehicles, speeding motorists with no concern for safety and unsecured boats with passengers riding to and from the launch to the parking lot. Parking in no-parking posted areas is also a safety concern. The Kalavista boat launch is a

to describe the number of students with special needs in a classroom. The government’s own legislation sets a limit at three students with an Individual Education Plan per class. In 2010, there are close to 12,000 class-composition violations. That is up from 11,000 in 2009 and 10,000 in 2008. These decisions on class-size and classcomposition violations show the government’s legislation is not working. The government, by stripping these matters out of collective bargaining in 2002, has created a dysfunctional system that is wasting valuable time and resources that would

be better spent in the classroom. The B.C. government legislated class-size limits and standards of support for children with special needs, but never provided the funding to get the job done. As a result, there are more overcrowded classes today than ever before. Our local district reduced 17 teaching positions in June. Ten of these were due to declining enrolment so the other seven positions cut will result in more classes that have higher numbers this year with reduced service to students. That means more classes that exceed 30 students and more classes that exceed 3 IEP’s. Our teachers are doing an incredible job with ever-shrinking resources. The support staff in the schools are working their best to support the teachers. The school board has done their best to keep the system working in spite of the provincial government. To parents, if you get a chance to say something to a teacher as they start the school year, say “thanks for doing an outstanding job for my child.” Bruce Cummings, President Vernon Teachers’ Association

The boating public of Vernon could be lobbying the city to provide boat launches outside of residential areas to areas where boating can be made more accessible. Colleen Strangward

safety hazard to the area residents and tourists alike whether boating or not. Mayor Garlick and Mr. Vinoly should live on this drive to truly see the extent of the safety issues at hand. If Mr. Vinoly had done his homework, he would find that the suggestion on the 2008 Traffic Study, to widen the frontage of the log house for a queuing area, would only cause more congestion and safety hazards to Kalavista Drive. The boaters would then have to line up in the queuing area, cross over the Drive into the launch while other boats are coming out which in turn would cause more congestion, safety concerns and traffic-related issues. In my opinion, the parking lot is too large to handle the small boat launch area and narrow street on which we live. Perhaps it's time to survey what the residents want instead of fixating on what the boaters want.

KEEP THE HST I am a senior — count me in to keep the HST. As a senior, I am so thankful for Old Age Security. My husband has had two major surgeries plus two major illnesses in the past 12 years. He always received the best of care through our health care system. I certainly don't mind paying more in taxes (HST) to ensure that we get continued good health care and that there are funds available when the younger generation reaches the age of 65. By the way, for those who say the HST is to pay off the Olympics, can you tell me why Ontario signed on to the HST? Rosalie Genier

Morning Star Staff

Call it the loneliness of the long distance runner. Nobody was at the finish line at the annual Terry Fox Run to cheer longtime local radio news voice (Pistol) Pete McIntyre Sunday, as the Kiss-FM news director blazed through the 10-kilometre course in about 42 minutes. “Nobody even greeted me, they weren’t expecting anybody,” laughed McIntyre, 45, who was joined on the run Sunday by his sons, Scott and Jon. “Just before the event started I decided to do the 10-K. I was only going to do eight. Scott was doing 10K as well, we ran together for awhile, then I went ahead of him. “I ran by a friend of mine who said ‘You must be in first place,’ and I thought, ‘No, it can’t be.’ They kept telling me at the station points I was in first. I was absolutely shocked, but I ran through all the right checkpoints,” said McIntyre. A man who runs six-to-eight kilometres three times a week, McIntyre has always admired Terry Fox. Watching a TV special on Fox directed by NBA star, and fellow Canadian, Steve Nash, reminded McIntyre of Fox’s amazing determination and courage. “He never gave up,” said McIntyre. “The Terry Fox Run is something me and my boys go in. I think it’s important to remember him.” Sunday’s event, held in communities around the country, marked the 30th anniversary of the run. The local event was moved to Kalamalka Secondary School because Coldstream Elementary, longtime site of the run, is under construction. Organizers also decided to move the pre-event festivities indoors because it had rained all day Saturday and up until the event started Sunday morn-

Match plows through fields Morning Star Staff

The leaves are turning gold, apples litter the ground, the grain is cut and hopefully dry – and it’s time to turn the stubble under and prepare for next year’s crop. The 34th North Okanagan Plowing Match goes Saturday on Lansdowne Road in Spallumcheen (follow the signs on Highway 97A from Enderby or Armstrong). The tractor and horse plowing starts at 10:30 a.m. and during the lunch break (12:30 to 1:30 p.m.), organizers will present an event where a blindfolded fellow, driving a garden tractor, is directed around a course of poles by his spouse. The cost to attend the match is $3 per adult, with children 12 and under free.

School board has surplus LEAH BLAIN Black Press

The North Okanagan-Shuswap School District is starting off the 2010-2011 school year in a good financial position with an $800,000 surplus. Secretary/treasurer Bruce Hunt says the surplus is a result of a number of factors. “Revenues were up a bit and expenses were down a bit, it’s a good situation,” he said, adding the Ministry of Education provided an extra $200,000 for the district’s outreach program as enrolment was up in February — Bruce Hunt and April. “The provincial government gave a carbon tax rebate of $44,000. We pick on the government sometimes but sometimes they give money back.” Fewer employees using the medical and dental benefits resulted in a saving of $80,000, while sick leave costs were down by $186,000. “With a $48 million wage budget, they’re small numbers but it still affects the budget,” said Hunt. A utility cost saving of $230,000 was realized by a warmer winter, and from measures brought in by the energy manager, a position funded by B.C. Hydro. With the total utility budget amounting to $1.5 million, Hunt said those savings were a “significant percentage,” but there’s no way of telling if there can be the same kind of savings this year. The transportation budget, which saw a reduction in costs, is now almost on par with the actual funding received from the ministry. The ministry hasn’t increased the transportation funding of $2.6 million since 2003. The district needed a 10 per cent reduction in the budget and it managed to reduce costs by $350,000 with the change in the bus schedule implemented last year.

Hunt said as the start times of elementary and secondary classes were changed, the fleet of buses was cut down by five, which is saving in labour costs as well as operating and maintenance dollars. Hunt said while some of these savings are small in comparison to the overall budget of $65 million, “every couple of hundred thousand adds up.”

“We pick on the government sometimes but sometimes they give money back.”

Rivers Day celebrated with BX Creek cleanup JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Everything from invasive weeds to cigarette butts and barbecues to wedding dresses are clogging Canada’s shorelines. So this week people from across the country are heading to their local shorelines to make a positive impact in their community. Locally, you can be a part of the solution Sunday with the Rivers Day 2010 Celebration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kin Beach Park where there will be live entertainment, art, games, face painting, information on local streams, creeks, wetlands and lakes, nature walks and interactive displays. Garden-glovewielding volunteers are also encouraged to come to BX Creek’s North Vernon Park (Deleenheer Road and 20th Street - behind Rona and Wal-Mart) between 2 and 4 p.m. While litter is always a concern, local officials there are putting a focus on another environmental irritant – invasive weeds. “It’s all along the creek, even beyond this area it’s a problem,� said William Adams, project co-ordinator for the BX Creek Wetlands Enhancement and Interpretive Signage Project (2010 to 2012). With enough helping hands, the weed pull will kick off the project to control the spread of invasive weeds in the lower BX Creek/Swan Lake area. “It helps to restore the natural environment,� said Adams. “Bring the balance back into the ecosystem.� Many weeds are detrimental to the area’s biodiversity and native plant communities and can be toxic to livestock. In fact some of the weeds being pulled Sunday are poisonous to horses. The black cottonwood red osier dogwood riparian community has been reduced in the Vernon areas by approximately 66 per cent based on the results of the 2008 Historical Mapping Project. The

lower BX Creek was part of this ecosystem and has suffered major losses since the 1800s. Susan Latimer is the biologist with the project and says the real effort of Sunday’s event is to educate local residents on the weeds. “The BX project is to highlight the importance of these riparian ecosystems and how the public can help with restoration efforts.� There will be photographs and information available to help everyone identify invasive weeds, which can sometimes be mistaken for native plants. Weeds like hoary alyssum, identified by small white flowers on

slender stocks. While it has traditionally been a problem in Grand Forks, Latimer says hoary alyssum is becoming a problem locally. “It’s been moving into the Okanagan.� Anyone wanting to learn more or help remove these invasive species is invited to the weed pull at BX Creek. You can register on site or by email: projectcoordinator@mail.com The weed pull is presented by the Allan Brooks Nature Centre with support from the EcoAction Program of Environment Canada, the City of Vernon and the North Okanagan Regional District.

The real question for those wanting to keep the long-gun registry is: “What is the most effective way to spend taxpayer dollars to protect citizens and make our streets safer?” I believe it is not in the wasteful and costly long-gun registry.

Cents make Vipers pay ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Schneider on NHL high GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Stefan Schneider prides himself on being able to shut down top lines. It is a quality that made him a valuable member of the Western League Portland Winterhawks last season. It is also something that drew the attention of the Vancouver Canucks, who signed the 6-foot-4, 206-pound pivot during Portland’s playoff run last winter. Schneider, who turns 21 in December, had his hands full as he went up against some of the NHL’s top new talent last week at the Canucks’ Young Stars Tournament in Penticton. Edmonton Oilers’ Taylor Hall, the first overall pick in the 2010 Entry Draft, was one of many sure-fire prospects to take the ice at South Okanagan Events Centre. “Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle (Edmonton’s first-round pick in 2008) were on a line and they were a good top line, that’s for sure. They’re tough to play against,” said Schneider.

“I didn’t get out much against them just because of how our lines worked... but when I was out there I made sure I was trying to shut them down.” Schneider, who roomed with Minnesota native Jordan Schroeder, Vancouver’s first overall pick (22nd overall) in the 2009 draft, played in each of the four Canuck prospects’ games, recording a pair of assists. Vancouver finished at 2-2 with wins over San Jose and Calgary, and losses to Edmonton and Anaheim. Like the first day at a new school, Schneider said it took a while for most players to settle in, but added the competition heated up in a hurry. “The first game for everyone it seemed like the whole team was a step behind... but after that each game felt more comfortable,” he said. “They were all good games and there was really good talent out there.” Schneider had one day off after the Young Stars tourney, and then went right into Canucks’ main camp Saturday. And

while he has a realistic shot at making the Manitoba Moose, Vancouver’s AHL affiliate, the solid two-way pivot will try to hang around the big club as long as possible. “I’m just going to go in there and prove myself and show them what I have,” said Schneider. “It’s going to be great to skate with that calibre, and hopefully it adjusts well for me.” Ever since he signed, Schneider admitted he has been a little bit awestruck by all that has transpired in the ensuing months. Growing up as a Canucks fan, idolizing players like Trevor Linden, makes it that much more surreal. “From day one, it has definitely been first class. Each day everything is wellprepared for us, and being on such a high-calibre team is such a great privilege. With it being close to home in the same province makes it even more incredible for me.” “After all this happened, I was on cloud nine, I was just in awe.”

Stefan Schneider follows the play from the Vancouver Canuck bench in the Young Guns Tournament at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

The only things that would have made it a more perfect result for Tyler Steel would have been scoring the winning goal and being a game star. However, the Vernon product made 31 saves, including three in overtime, to give the Merritt Centennials their first B.C. Hockey League win of the season, a 5-4 double overtime decision over the Vernon Vipers (the same team that cut Steel late in training camp) in front of 1,405 fans Tuesday at the Wesbild Centre. “I just went into it like any other game I was playing, I got really focused and was determined to get a win in my first time playing in my hometown,” said Steel, 17, who had family and a bunch of friends in the stands as he picked up his first BCHL win. “It crossed my mind a little bit that I wanted to send the Vipers a bit of a message, but I just wanted to prove to everyone that I can play in this league and be good in this league. “I thought I did pretty good. I want that last one back, but we ended up winning, that’s a good thing. We worked really hard, guys played their roles very well, everyone just played great.” Defenceman Jeff Zmurchyk scored his first of the year 1:20 into double overtime for the 1-5 Centennials. He picked up a loose puck in his own end during the three-on-three, skated into Vernon territory and wired a wrist shot from the left faceoff circle that cleanly beat Vipers rookie goalie Bryton Udy – the man who beat out Steel for the back-up role to Blake Voth – on the glove side. The Vipers forced overtime when Dylan Walchuk banged in a puck on the doorstep with 33 seconds left in regulation time. Kyle Murphy started the play by driving to the net around a Centennials defender and getting a high shot away on Steel. The puck dropped to Walchuk, the game’s second star, who fought off a check to put in his second of the night and fourth of the year. Merritt had taken a 3-2 lead just three minutes earlier on a penalty shot from first star Dustin Johnson. Referee Mike Boisvert awarded the shot after Vernon defenceman Steve Weinstein dove on the puck in the crease behind Udy as a Merritt shot hit Udy high on the chest, went up in the air over his head and landed behind him in the crease. Johnson went to the backhand and beat Udy over the right shoulder for the go-ahead goal, setting the stage for Walchuk’s equalizer. “We’re not used to having to defend one-goal leads late in the game, that’s our first time doing it,” said Merritt head coach Luke Pierce, a former Viper.

Stingy defence lifts Maroons Morning Star Staff

The game was a lot closer than the final score indicates. The Fulton Maroons took advantage of six Vernon turnovers to beat the visiting Panthers 22-2 in the opening Interior Conference Junior Varsity Football games for both teams Wednesday at Grahame Park. “The game was a defensive struggle between two pretty good defensive units,” said Fulton head coach Mike Scheller. “It was 6-0 Fulton for most of the game, and most of the scoring took place after the mid-point of the fourth quarter.” The Maroons scored on the game’s opening drive, capped off with a Clark Richardson 15-yard touchdown run. The Panthers appeared to have equalized on their opening drive of the game when quarterback Matt Forsyth threw a 20-yard pass to Tyson Taylor, only to have the play negated by a penalty. There would be no more scoring until the fourth quarter when VSS got on the board with a safety, after Keaton Hubner sacked Fulton quarterback Austin Richardson in the end zone. The Cats got the ball back and drove to the Fulton one-yard line, then coughed up the ball on a fumble. Clark Richardson got his second touchdown of the game, returning a Panthers punt 91 yards to paydirt. Austin Richardson ran three yards for a two-point convert. Matt Kane picked off a Forsyth pass and rumbled 43 yards for a third Fulton major, and linebacker Riley Braidwood finished off the scoring, sacking Forsyth in the end zone for a twopoint safety. “The Vernon kids played hard and definitely gave us a very competitive game,” said Scheller. “That being

VSS Panthers’ Matt Forsyth (18) braces for the impact from incoming Fulton Maroons’ Tanner Bishop Wednesday during Junior Varsity football action at Grahame Park. said, we won the field position battle in the game and I am really happy with the effort of our kids. I thought they played hard, blocked well and tackled well throughout the game.” Clark Richardson finished the game with 19 carries for 120 yards and one touchdown for the Maroons, and also caught one pass for 11 yards. Austin Richardson gained 31 yards on 10 carries, and completed four of eight passes for 18 yards and one interception, while Sean Greene added five yards on four touches. Matt Eso, Layne Greene and Lucas Mitchell all had catches for the winners. On defence, Lucas Hofer had 15 tackles for the Maroons, Eso and Sean Greene added seven each (including a quarterback sack for Greene) and Kyle Smith had four. Kane had two picks, Enrigue Gomez had one and Kyle Renyard recovered a fumble. “Hofer in the middle linebacker spot had a great game and was a tackling machine,” said Scheller, who praised the play calling of defensive co-ordinator Darryl Thomas. “Kyle

Smith had a great game on the corner and Kyle Renyard made a huge play, stripping the ball on the goal line for us to save a TD.” Tanner Bishop and Kacey Smart also received praise from Fulton coaches. The Panthers were led offensively by Ryan Messer, who had 142 yards rushing on 20 carries. Hubner chipped in 71 yards on the ground on 12 touches. Forsyth ran for 23 yards and was 2-9 passing. Colten Klein had a game-high 15 tackles for the Cats. “The boys competed hard but our offence couldn’t take advantage of the opportunities we were given,” said VSS head coach Sean Smith. “Taking a TD off the scoreboard due to a penalty, and fumbling on their goal line, was the difference in the game.” Turning the ball over six times and taking numerous penalties were also factors cited by Smith in the Vernon defeat. “If we can learn to protect the ball and not shoot ourselves in the foot, we’ll be a better team,” said Smith, who also lauded the Maroons’

defence. “They did a great job all day. They kept us out of their end zone and forced a lot of turnovers.” The Panthers, who do not have a home field for the next couple of years due to the construction of the new VSS, visit the Kalamalka Lakers Wednesday at 4 p.m. Next action for the Maroons is Thursday, Sept. 30, when they host the Salmon Arm Golds at Grahame Park at 4 p.m. Senior varsity football sees the Panthers visiting the Maroons Saturday at 11 a.m. at Grahame Park.

Pierce praises play of Walchuk Continued from A24 “It’s something, like everything, that’s a lesson that our guys are going to learn. I liked our effort level. It wasn’t from a lack of trying, it was from a breakdown. Give Vernon a lot of credit, especially Dylan Walchuk. I thought he was one of the best players on the ice tonight.” Walchuk opened the scoring at 3:34 of the first with a goal similar to his game-tying marker. He stood at the edge of the crease and scored on a rebound after Steel stoned David Robinson and Mark Basara in close. The Centennials tied the game with their first of three powerplay goals on the evening less than two minutes later. Stephen Wall won a face-off to Udy’s right in Vernon territory, and Merritt leading scorer Regan Soquila, one of 11 rookies in the Centennials lineup, ripped his fourth of the year past Udy. Merritt took the lead with the man advantage with only 16 seconds left in the opening frame as Johnson tried to pass from behind the net. The puck went off defenceman Elliot Richardson’s skate and through Udy’s legs.

Vernon Vipers’ Todd Skirving gets a shot off against a busy Merritt Centennials’ netminder Tyler Steel in B.C. Hockey League action Tuesday night at the Wesbild Centre. Vernon scored the only goal of the second period when Weinstein deflected a Bryce Kakoske shot from the point on the powerplay that went five-hole on Steel. Basara gave Vernon a 3-2 edge 3:53 into the third when a point shot hit his leg as he was screening Steel and got past the Merritt netminder. Jeff Jones, who earlier in the week committed to Robert Morris University, an NCAA Division 1 school in Pittsburgh, tied the game for Merritt on

the power play at 6:43, one-timing a cross-ice pass from Johnson past Udy. Jones was the game’s third star. “Tonight’s loss is obviously very disappointing,” said Vernon head coach Mark Ferner. “We had some guys with some good efforts but just not enough. It’s unacceptable. We win as a team, lose as a team. We needed to be better in a lot of different areas, our penalty kill, our own-end play, our efforts away from the puck. Right now we’re

not there.” The game marked the debut of Coldstream defenceman Max Mowat for the Vipers. He was acquired after being cut by the Kamloops Blazers of the WHL. Mowat saw a regular shift paired with Richardson. “It’s been a good experience since I’ve been here, I’ve liked the guys ever since I’ve been here,” said Mowat, who practised Monday with the team for the first time. “We had it going there for a bit tonight then we got outworked.”

The Vipers, who were in fourth place in the Interior Conference at 2-2-0-1 Thursday, one point behind the Penticton Vees and five back of the front-running Salmon Arm SilverBacks, visit the Prince George Spruce Kings tonight and Sunday afternoon, and travel to Quesnel to face the host Millionaires Saturday. The Spruce Kings enter the game as the only winless team in the BCHL. SNAKE BITES: Hockey Canada has announced that Walchuk and Basara are among the 41 players that will attend the Canada West evaluation camp in preparation for the 2010 World Junior A Challenge. The evaluation camp, scheduled for Sept. 27-28, will be held at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, the same venue that will host the World Junior A Challenge from Nov. 8-14. The BCHL has 14 players invited to the camp.

Fever qualify for fallen teammate Morning Star Staff

Okanagan Spring Fever will have national slo-pitch tournament fever in 2011 after qualifying for the Canadian event next August, in either Calgary or Edmonton. Heather Savitzky’s brewery squad qualified by reaching the quarterfinals at the provincial Intermediate co-ed mixed slo-pitch championships in rainy Kelowna. “It was a great provincial, playing with many injured players from this year,” said Savitzky. “I was extremely happy with how the gang played, and look forward to next year and nationals.” The Fever began the tournament with heavy hearts, dedicating the event to the memory of teammate Doug Massie, who passed away three weeks before provincials. Massie’s older son, Logan, wearing his dad’s no. 12 jersey, belted a three-run homer to help Fever mercy-rule Jakked of Kelowna 21-5 in five innings. Kelly Jenner got the win on the mound, while Kelli Graham drove in a

couple of runs with a triple. Dave Cover also homered for the winners, Jenn Thatcher and Tiffany Disher added three hits each and Leanne Wickenheiser went 2-3. Gord Tung got the win on the mound as the Fever mercied Kelowna’s Jagga Bombers 17-3. Mike Burke, Corey Massie, Doug’s youngest son, Brandie Hunter and Todd Doyle all had three hits while Don Hunter went 2-3. Game three saw a rematch of the 2010 provincial final with Grubby from Langley, and the game ended in a 12-12 tie. In the playoff round, moved to an artificial turf surface because of rain and shortened to five-run innings and a one-hour time limit, the Fever scored three runs in the top of the eighth inning to down I’d Hit That from the Fraser Valley 10-7 to advance to the quarterfinals against the Langley Funnel Kings, a team Okanagan Spring beat in the 2009 provincial semifinals. The Kings would get revenge, edging the Fever by one run.

Other team members included assistant coach Wayne Larrson, Kelli Graham, Michelle Embleton, Nancy Lafreniere, Doug Ronnquist and Ryan Marchand. Sneakers Hooligans, coached by Kevin Manke, made the playoff round in the Intermediate division in Kelowna. In the playoff round, the Hooligans beat South Okanagan’s Rye Not? 12-6, to ensure a spot in the top-16. Krunch knocked out the Hooligans 5-3. In Summerland, The Half Pints, featuring Vernon players Jason and Jenn DeVries, Stephanie Beatty, Trevor Cieszecki, Jerry Mazu and Mallory Gerwing, were raising some pints after qualifying for the 2011 national finals in Newfoundland. The Half Pints finished third in the recreation division at the provincial championship qualifying tournament. Competing with 27 other teams, the Half Pints were a perfect 3-0 after round-robin play, winning their first two games over the Dingers and Brave Hearts in mercy-rule games, then earn-

ing a forfeit victory over the Red Birds. The perfect record gave them a bye in the first round of playoff games. Showing no signs of rust, the Pints mercied the Jumpers in five innings to move to the quarterfinals, where they beat the A Team 13-6 for a spot in the semifinals. A team called Git R Dun got ‘er done against the Half Pints, beating them in the semifinals, but the top-three finish was good for a spot at nationals. Two area teams competed in the Rec Invite division in Summerland. The Bubbas, coached by John Bisson, ended up sixth, and the Dirty Sneakers went 1-3.

Vernon grads hot for Heat Morning Star Staff

There will certainly be a Vernon flavour to the UBC Okanagan men’s volleyball team when they take on the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack in an exhibition game Saturday, Oct. 9, at Fulton Secondary. The Heat’s roster includes four former Vernon high school stars. All-Canadian setter Preston Tucker, a Seaton grad, is joined by former VSS Panthers outside hitter Greg Niemantsverdriet and two ex-Fulton Maroons: Jordan Young, a force with the Maroons last season, and outside hitter Cailen Lochehad. The Heat are the defending Canadian bronze medalists.

Firefighters take boots to Muscular Dystrophy Morning Star Staff

Join Vernon firefighters as they hold out their boots in support of Muscular Dystrophy Canada. To support the cause, stop by Walmart and the Real Canadian Superstore today from 5 to 8 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Walmart, the Real Canadian Superstore, the Village Green Mall and the Starbucks at the Fruit Union Plaza. “Firefighters across the Okanagan Valley give so much to their communities every day fighting fires and responding to medical emergencies, but what is truly inspiring is their incredible dedication to help people affected by neuromuscular disorders,� said Amanda De Vries, revenue development co-ordinator with Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Since 1954, Canadian firefight-

ers have been helping Muscular Dystrophy Canada fight the battle against muscular dystrophy — a group of more than 100 types of neuromuscular disorders characterized by the wasting and progressive weakness of muscles. Over time, many people with neuromuscular disorders are unable to walk, speak, or ultimately breathe. Some diseases are lifethreatening and pres-

ently, there is no cure. The money raised by Vernon firefighters will be donated to improve the quality of life for people living with neuromuscular disorders by purchasing mobility equipment, providing support services, and funding research, which will one day lead to a cure. Last year, firefighters in B.C. and Yukon raised more than $628,000 for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Nominations accepted for title of worst handyman Morning Star Staff

The search for Canada’s worst handyman is coming to Vernon. With more than half a million viewers tuning in to watch last season’s finale, Canada’s Worst Handyman is calling on the people of Vernon to nominate candidates for the sixth installment of the hit show. After five seasons, including 25 candidates from across the country, the series is yet to include a Vernon resident. Flying under the radar for far too long, producers are setting their sights on this Okanagan Valley city. Canada’s Worst Handyman aims to improve the skill set of the nation’s worst handymen and handywomen by immersing them in handyman rehab, a series of tool training sessions and hands on challenges designed to improve the most ham-fisted handymen. Those selected for the show will be given an opportunity to learn from the on-set home improvement experts and practice their new skills through a series of building challenges. And just who qualifies? Men and women who have great renovation ambition and little skill. Drywall destroyers who make more patchwork than progress. Slap dash shortcutters who skip steps. Husbands and wives who end up with more paint on their clothes than on the wall, grandparents who undertake projects so big without the know-how to knowhow. Any friend, relative or neighbour who could benefit from intense tool training. And just why would anyone want to participate in a program called Canada’s Worst Handyman? “Don’t let the title scare you. Not only is taking part in this show a once in a lifetime opportunity, everyone who has participated actually really learns from the hands-on training and unique challenges,” said Andrew Younghusband,

host and writer of the show. “Plus, it’s a lot of fun.” Nominations for the

new season are now being accepted by email and phone at handyman@propertelevision. com or 1-866-598-

2591. Producers low up with each every nomination will be in Vernon

foland and this

November to meet with promising candidates. Filming for the new season is scheduled for January 2011.

Those selected for the show will earn a spot at the Handyman Rehabilitation Centre and be flown to an

undisclosed location in Ontario. Nominations are being accepted immediately until the end of October.

The Hip’s wordsman returns to Vernon with his other project KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Listen carefully to the tail end of Gord Downie’s The Grand Bounce and you can catch a snippet of conversation, and then a whistle blowing as a train moves along the tracks. It’s just one of the images the poet, musician and stalwart of Canadian giants, The Tragically Hip, captures on his latest solo effort with his other band, the Country of Miracles. It’s through the people he’s met, conversations he’s had, and travels across this great country that Downie has given us his picture of this nation. It comes in his songs, whether he is talking about the East Wind and how it goes through you or about the unflattering Hard Canadian (perhaps a shot at former Ontario premier Mike Harris, of whom Downie, admittedly, wasn’t a big fan.) On the phone from his distant hotel room somewhere in Toronto just before boarding a plane to Vancouver, Downie is about to reenter this part of the country. Last seen this summer at Salmon Arm’s Roots and Blues Festival, this current cross-country tour with the Country of Miracles stops in Vernon Sunday. “The one thing about this country is it’s too big,� he laughs. “I’m in this hotel room and there’s another Canada just across the hall. “It’s not about east or west, it’s what’s going on with yourself. That’s Canada.� These days, Downie would rather talk about Canada’s waterways –– he is a guardian with Lake Ontario’s WaterKeeper and recently paid a visit to Moosonee on the Hudson Bay lowlands, the largest wetland area on earth –– than

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Last seen in Vernon in 2002 with The Tragically Hip, Gord Downie returns with his other band, the Country of Miracles, to play songs from his three solo recordings at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Sunday. what he feels about the current political situation in this country. “Our great rivers keep getting dammed and not many people in Canada know what’s going on out there,� he says, referring to the north, adding “I don’t talk about the HST too much... There’s no elbow room. It’s weighted in what it will get you or lose you. There’s not great cause for change.� Downie is more content to embody what this country is through the words of fellow Canadian scribes such as late poet Al Purdy, who was schooled in Belleville, Ont., not far from where Downie, 46, went to high school in Kingston. There are myriad things that

“It’s not about east or west, it’s what’s going on with yourself. That’s Canada.� — Gord Downie attracts him to Purdy, whose words influence the song Yellow Days on The Grand Bounce. “He was able to express things so perfectly and at least insinuate a core of meaning distilled down to one word,� said Downie. “It’s what’s happening that’s important. The setting isn’t the core, it’s the

warm core of the earth that’s necessary to the story. It’s the core you can’t start or end without.� A published poet himself, Downie’s book of poetry, Coke Machine Glow, was published in 2001 to correlate with his debut solo album of the same name. Asked if he plans to publish his work again anytime soon, Downie says it depends on when the mood hits him. “I start and stop every once and awhile. I stop when an idea no longer pleases me. I go when it doesn’t let me go.� His songwriting, however, has never ceased, as The Grand Bounce attests.

SECTION

arts B 'ORD$OWNIESCOUNTRYOFMIRACLES Working again with the group of musicians who backed him on his last two solo efforts, including 2003’s Battle of Nudes, the Country of Miracles features Julie Doiron, of Eric’s Trip fame, on backing vocals, guitarist Dale Morningstar, Josh Finlayson on bass, drummer Dave Clark and John Press on keyboards. “Josh, a Toronto friend, encouraged me that it would be a good thing to do,� said Downie about that first solo outing. “The process was attracting musicians to the project, and they are still part of it.� Downie also had to come to terms with losing the original recording studio (the Old Gas Station on the Toronto Islands, which Morningstar owned, and was later destroyed,) where Coke Machine Glow came to life. “It was pretty emotional, and has been with me ever since. It was a battle for the six of us,� he said. Downie bounced back, so to speak, when he met Chris Walla (best known for his work with band Death Cab for Cutie) at the Pemberton Music Festival, who came on board to produce The Grand Bounce. The album was recorded at the Bath House near Kingston. “I would rather chew my right arm off than have an unhealthy experience in the studio,� said Downie. “It’s a precious place and means too much. Chris restored my faith in what record making should be.� As for his current project being a “Hip� replacement, Downie says he hasn’t left his hardcore fans and playing hockey arenas all together. “I am always hopeful. I have faith and trust in all the bands I have,� he said, avoiding exactly when and where he will reunite with his other band. “Having creative control means faith and trust.� Gord Downie and the Country of Miracles play the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Sunday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $37 at the Ticket Seller box office.

Barbara Hartley goes over some of the interesting things to see on the Vernon heritage tour on the East Hill while meeting in front of a beautiful example of historical architecture Tuesday.

• Stunning lake view homes • Privileged use at the Seasons Club

Architecture has long been considered art, and here in Vernon, there are many fine examples of early-to-mid 20th century buildings and homes. On Saturday, Oct. 2, the public will be able to explore some of these artistic treasures that are still standing when local resident Barbara Hartley gives a two-hour guided walk through historic lower East Hill. “The walk will feature homes that reflect heritage architectural styles and their relationship to downtown businesses,” said Hartley. Sponsored by the Friends of the Museum, all walkers must preregister at the Vernon Museum prior to the outing. Cost is $8 per per person, and complimentary coffee will follow the tour.

Opera live from The Met returns

I

n New York, opera lovers in Times Square will see a free large-screen transmission of the Metropolitan Opera’s season opening performance. But even more evident will be the growing number able to experience these operas in movie theatres. Last year, The Met Live in HD series of live, highdefinition transmissions in movie theaters thrilled audiences around the world. Vernon starts its third season at Galaxy Cinemas with their season opener Oct. 9. Aficionados know the drill. You arrive after breakfast, greet your friends before the performance starts, and pick up your précis (summary) of the plot. Inside the Galaxy auditorium you watch the New York audience taking their seats. And you get the best seat in the house. These transmissions are covered with many cameras, and the TV directors know their score. The camera cutting is faithful to the music, and you get excellent close-ups. And there are other bonuses. Every line is subtitled. You get interviews with the principals. And you go backstage to watch set changes. The HD Live at The Met series features 12 operas. Seven new productions (including two premieres) headline the 2010-11 season, celebrating the 40th anniversary of music

director James Levine. This year’s most important new work is Wagner’s epic Der Ring des Nibelungen, a four-part production by internationally renowned Canadian director, writer, and performer Robert Lepage. Known for visually stunning and technologically advanced theatre Lepage Jim Elderon pieces, chooses leading designers for sets, costumes and lighting, even an interactive projection artist. Bryn Terfel sings Wotan (king of the gods) and Stephanie Blythe is Fricka (Wotan’s wife, goddess of marriage.) Levine, conductor for all Ring productions since 1989, says, “The Ring is one of those works of art that you think you know, but every time you return to it you find all kinds of brilliant moments that hadn’t struck you with the same force before.” The first two parts of this iconic four-part saga will be transmitted this year, with the remaining two in the 2011-2012 season. Das Rheingold (The Rhine Gold) is the first installment, and will be the opening HD screening. The four operas, which are often referred to as simply The Ring, is a cycle of epic dramas by German composer Richard Wagner, based loosely on characters from the Norse sagas and the Nibelungenlied. The Nibelung of the title is the dwarf

Alberich, and the ring is the one he fashions from the Rhinegold. The cycle is a work of extraordinary scale. One notable facet is its sheer length –– a full performance takes four nights, with a total playing time of about 15 hours, depending on the conductor’s pacing. The remaining fall HD screenings include a new production of Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov (the repertory classic featuring René Pape, conducted by Valery Gergiev); a revival of Donizetti’s Don Pasquale (featuring Anna Netrebko, conducted by James Levine); and lastly, Verdi’s Don Carlo. This new co-production by Nicholas Hytner, artistic director of London’s National Theatre, first opened at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, in

2008. It will be conducted by (Canadian) Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and will star Roberto Alagna in the title role. The winter and

The Town is really more of a characterdriven drama than an action movie, though Affleck does darn well in both departments.

Spoken word gets peachy Those looking forward to Canadian slam poet Shane Koyczan returning to Vernon to perform with his trio, The Short Story Long, Oct. 22 can get an earful from another top-notch spoken word artist in Kelowna next week. The department of creative studies at UBC Okanagan presents an evening with Hilary Peach, and two musical collaborators, Thursday. Performing as part of the department’s visiting author series, Peach will be joined by musicians Victor Anthony and Alexander Varty at The Streaming Cafe, 596 Leon Ave. in downtown Kelowna. Peach is an audio poet, recording artist, festival director, arts activist, and producer. She has performed at events that include the Vancouver International Folk Music Festival, Montreal’s Voix d’Ameriques, and the Poetry International Festival in Rotterdam. Her debut recording was a CD, Poems Only Dogs Can Hear (2003). In 2006 she toured across Canada with her fusion trio performing a folk opera called Suitcase Local, which has just been released as a CD of the same name (2009). This spoken word and music fusion is a spooky retelling of some of Peach’s experiences as a Canadian working as a high-pressure welder in the construction and maintenance of power plants south of the border. Her publications include 10 Flowered Cactus (1996), Love is a Small Town (2001), and inclusions in various anthologies and magazines. Peach is also the founder and artistic director of the Poetry Gabriola Festival on B.C.’s Gabriola Island. Anthony’s music combines highly original, image-packed vignettes with the roots and blues traditions of the American South. Musicologist, ace photographer, and founder of the ukulele hotline, Anthony is identified on the Gabriola culture map

as a local treasure. He has recorded and The music performed columnist with with artists Va n c o u v e r as diverse as weekly, The John Oswald, G e o r g i a Dead Voices Straight, the on Air, Evil past 20 years, Twang, Wayne Varty is an Horvitz, Al eclectic guiNeil, Gamelan tarist who has Madu Sari, spent the past R a n d y Hilary Peach 25 years naviBachman, and gating the boundaries of choreographer Jennifer folk, popular, and impro- Mascall. vised music.

District seeks better business with agricultural board LACHLAN LABERE Black Press

Local governments would like to see more of a partnership with the Agricultural Land Commission when reviewing official community plans. This was one of the messages directors of the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District had to share with an Agricultural Land Commission review committee. “We’re supportive of protecting agricultural lands, but we feel our area has never had the boundary really looked at for the suitability of the soils and the suitability of the land use in some cases, and we feel there’s a lot of staff time and energy spent asking for lands out of the ALR that probably shouldn’t be there as it is,” said director Kevin Flynn, adding the CSRD has been asking for a review of the boundaries in the area and has been refused. Official community plans pose another concern. “When a community spends $100,000 on an OCP review, it doesn’t seem to be much of a partnership with the ALC when you’re developing the OCP,” said Flynn.

“You go through that OCP and they say yes or no and, typically, I think you try to avoid anything that could be

a conflict.” Flynn said the CSRD believes there should be more of a partnership and more involvement

by the ALC in related discussions so they’re not saying no to an OCP after all the work has been done.

The ALC has been inviting stakeholders from communities throughout the province to participate in a

series of meetings to see if the ALC is effectively meeting its mandate and explore opportunities to more effectively

administer the ALR. However, the ALC has indicated there is no support for weakening the reserve.

Kokanee numbers looking good JUDIE STEEVES Black Press

There are fairly good numbers of stream spawning kokanee returning to their place of birth to complete their life cycle and lay their eggs before dying this fall. Stock assessment biologist Paul Askey, with the environment ministry, says the run in Kelowna’s Mission Creek spawning channel appears to have peaked already and the numbers are good with an estimated 7,000 or so, but there are fewer in the creek. If more come in to Mission Creek, total numbers could be good, but if the creek run is now peaking, they might not be so good, he said. Usually, that run peaks in the next week or so. Kokanee are a landlocked, freshwater salmon who spawn at four years of age, and four years ago, it was a pretty good year for the number of kokanee spawning in streams. In fact, that was right at the beginning of an improvement in kokanee populations, following a crash in their numbers in Okanagan Lake. Last year, however, was not a very good year for stream spawner returns, and Askey says there’s really no reason to expect a spectacular year in terms of their numbers this year. There were good numbers of the later

shore spawning kokanee last year, though. It’s not expected they will begin to return to the stretch

of shore where they were born until midOctober. This year’s return

of kokanee is a bit earlier due to the cooler September weather. Their return to

streams is largely dictated by water temperatures, so a warm September can hold

them off, sometimes for too long for their eggs to be viable, according to some scientists.

life C Volunteers share ‘One to One’ CARA BRADY

Morning Star Staff

The One To One program helps change reluctant readers into kids who can’t wait to go to the library to pick out more books. The One To One Children’s Literacy Program was developed in Vancouver in 1989 by learning assistance teachers and volunteers of the Junior League for children in Grades 1 to 6 who are struggling with reading but do not receive specialized reading help from the schools. Each child receives one-on-one tutoring for 30 minutes three or four times a week for 12 weeks. Trained volunteer tutors provide a supportive environment to help improve reading fluency and comprehension. “I really believe in the program,� said Cindy Snitynsky, school liaison for the program, and school coordinator for Okanagan Landing elementary school. “My son was in the program and his reading improved considerably after he had the support of the program. He felt very relaxed with the tutors and I feel they established really good relationships. The tutors enjoy what they are doing and this makes the children comfortable and look at reading in a different way.� The time commitment for each volunteer is one-and-ahalf hours one morning or afternoon a week for as many 12-week sessions as they want. Tutors receive support from the teacher and the One To One staff and there are substitutes available for tutors who are ill or on vacation. VantageOne Financial Services is one of the local businesses that gives employees time during the work day to volunteer. “We have been supporting the program since 2007 and the Credit Union system throughout B.C. is onside with early childhood development through Success By Six for children age zero to six,� said Glenn Benischek, VantageOne CEO. “We provide people to the One To One program by giving our staff the time off to read with kids during the day. They are very appreciative to have the opportunity to do this and have the reward of seeing the children progress. They look forward to it. We have one retired employee who still does it.� The volunteer tutors do not need to have a background in education but must have good reading and English language skills and a desire to make a difference. “It’s important that they love reading,� said Kristi Kirkness,

Cindy Snitynsky (left) with her son Drake Snitynsky, a Grade 4 student at Okanagan Landing school, reads to Glenn Benishek, CEO of VantageOne, one of the sponsors of the One To One Children’s Literacy Program. Volunteer tutor training takes place Oct. 4, 5 or 13. One To One district coordinator. “They come from all backgrounds. One of our tutors closes his business one day a week so he can come and read with the children.� Snitynsky said she could see that her son was more selfconfident after taking part in the program. “I know it’s hard for teachers to give individual time and this is a time to slow down and learn to enjoy books. My son is already asking about being in the program again this year,� she said. One To One started in Vernon schools in 1996 with

funding from the Kalamalka Rotary Club and within five years the program was in every school in the district. It is funded by community-based groups and each school’s parent organization, which buys a One To One library for the participating schools. The training is approximately three hours long and takes place on Oct. 4, 5 or 13.

The little dancer in the aisle LINDA SELLERS

To place a classified ad call:

Special to The Morning Star

Have you ever been in a church service and as you’re singing a praise song your eyes turn to a little child who is dancing in the aisle, so free with abandonment? It’s like the most natural thing to do for this child. It lifts your spirit to watch, it makes you smile, it expresses exactly how you feel inside as you pour out your heart to your God in worship. Sometimes an adult asks the child to stop, for after all, we are in church. Other times their spontaneity and freedom of worship is allowed because they are a child. But don’t let anyone older express their worship through dance in church! Some older children, youth and adults are wired up by God to express themselves through movement. Unfortunately the expression of dance has been frowned upon for fear of disorder. But just like the electric guitars and drums and singing, the Christian church has established a balance between spontane-

There is a beautiful, reverent, and even powerful expression of worship and praise through the art of dance that I am sure is pleasing to God, as was the little child dancing in church. I have experienced it firsthand for 36 years at numerous churches and worship conferences in Canada. I’m pretty sure that

there will be people dancing in heaven, for it is one of the ways we just naturally express our joy. People have said to me that I have been one of the pioneers, teaching worship dance. But the Bible has many references about worship dance. Most of my teaching experience has been in the Toronto area and now that I have

Finding peace and happiness in a busy world Morning Star Staff

Most people need help in achieving peace and happiness in their busy modern lives. Buddha taught profound methods for all people to help identify, reduce and finally overcome and abandon human problems and attain enlightenment, the real meaning of our human life. On Oct. 2, the Shantideva Buddhist Centre in Vernon presents The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni, with monk Gen Kelsang Sanden. “At this empowerment we receive special blessings that help us put these teachings into practice in our lives,” said Karen Goodwin, with the centre. The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Monashee Room at the Village Green Hotel, 4801-27th St. The cost is $55. There will also be an

Overbearing dad is judgmental

D

ear Annie: I met “Tom” a few months ago at church. We are both retired and have a lot in common. He is close to my age and attends services with his 84-yearold father, who has limited mobility. Tom is his caregiver. It turns out Tom is gay, so romance is out of the question, but I’d still like a friendship, and he feels the same. I love his father like a second dad. However, since Second Dad found out I went to a club to listen to my favorite rock band, he told Tom not to have anything more to do with me. Annie, I behaved myself at the club. I stayed until 2 a.m. with two other women, drank only ice water and left by myself. The father has said he is so disappointed

PSA test is first step Morning Star Staff

One in every six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, according to the Canadian Cancer Society. Because there are often no symptoms, it is recommended that all men 50 years and older should have a PSA blood test, earlier if there is a family history of prostate cancer. The good news is that the treatment of prostate cancer is extremely successful if the disease is caught early. Several members of the Vernon Prostate Cancer Support and Awareness Group have been free of cancer for 10 years and longer. This is Prostate Cancer Awareness Week, and the members of the Vernon group welcome newcomers to their monthly meeting, which meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the People Place, 3402-

27th Ave. Next meeting is Monday. Free vouchers for the PSA test are available at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation office or by calling Ed at 545-6220 or Lloyd at 549-2362.

second semester of college, and nothing has been the same since. I have tried to be supportive, understanding and patient. I made an appointment with a grief counselor, but Emmett refused to go. The only thing that interests him now is hanging with his friends. They are reasonably good kids, but Emmett has lost his focus and is exhibiting some risky behavior. I am afraid his next bad decision could be costly. How can I make my adult, but still maturing, child seek the help he needs before it’s too late? It would be terrible if his grief became selfdestructive and he threw away all his potential. I can’t sit by and watch it happen. What can I do?

— Worried Mom Dear Mom: If Emmett is still enrolled in college, call the counseling department and alert them to his problem. You also can enlist one of Emmett’s friends (or any person he respects) to talk to him and perhaps give him the number of that grief counselor — or find another through your local hospitals and doctors’ offices. In the meantime, don’t nag him about it. Instead, tell him every day how much you love him and that if he needs you, you are always available.

BIBLE BASICS

The Trinity. The word “trinity” does not occur in the Bible. The ‘Holy Spirit in God’ is nowhere said in scripture. The Trinity is inconsistent with the rule of prayer directed in the sacred Scripture, for if God be three persons, how can we pray to Him through His Son for His Spirit? “I am the LORD, there is none else, there is no God beside me.” Isa. 45:5. “There is...one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all.” Eph. 4:1-6.

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.

Municipal politicians preparing for UBCM TOM FLETCHER Black Press

Municipal politicians are gathering in Whistler next week to decide whether to extend their term of office to four years. The B.C. government would have to amend the Local Government Act to extend the terms of councillors and school trustees beyond the existing three years. But Surrey Coun. Barbara Steele, incoming president of the Union of B.C. Municipalities, said provincial politicians have promised to abide by the decision made by delegates at their annual convention Sept. 28 to Oct. 1. Steele sat on a provincial-municipal task force that recommended the move to fouryear terms in May. During an interview, Steele predicted a vigorous debate and a close vote on the proposed change, which could be made in time for civic elections next fall. Some smaller communities have difficulty finding candidates willing to make even a threeyear commitment to a job that often features low pay, long hours and a lack of public recognition or respect. Among the resolutions put forward for debate at the convention is one from the northeast B.C. community of Hudson’s Hope, calling for three-year terms to be maintained. The rural-urban divide in B.C. will be prominent at this year’s convention. The UBCM executive has proposed adding two more members to represent the Metro Vancouver region, where more than half the province’s population now lives, to balance the majority of councillors from smaller communities who tend to dominate the executive. Another resolution calls for moving the date of local elections from November to October, so politicians outside the South Coast are less likely to campaign on

snowy streets and highways.

Other issues unite communities across the

province, such as the impact of drug traffick-

ing. The

Cariboo

Regional District is seeking provincial help

to deal with marijuana growers in rural areas.

YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY Some new developments are indicated involving your social life in the year ahead. Either several new people you’ll meet or some folks you now think of as merely being casual acquaintances could turn into your closest friends.

until you’ve got the deets.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Let that wonderful spirit of cooperation and fairness you naturally possess be pronounced in all that you do, and you’ll easily find harmony in your dealings.

CANCER ( June 21-July 22) It might be far nicer to coast, but it isn’t likely to get you anywhere. Challenge yourself a bit and put forth some effort to accomplish something you’ve been putting off.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You’re in an especially good cycle for beginning something that normally might be difficult, such as going on a diet or starting an exercise program. Don’t waste this point in time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Contact that impressive person you recently met whom you would like to know better, and suggest doing something interesting together. That person is equally eager to cozy up to you, too. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don’t start anything that you might have difficulty in completing, because if you can make this a day of achievement, you should be able to clear yourself of having any near-misses. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you’re able to make a choice between assignments that are of a mental or physical nature, choose the former. Your cranial attributes are likely to be working a bit better than your muscles. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Making due with what you have will give your bank account the rest it deserves. Engage in activities that don’t cost you anything, such as visiting family or a good friend. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - You’ll never fit comfortably in a subservient role, so don’t let a bossy type try to maneuver you into one. Unless you call your own shots, you’ll end up being miserable. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) In order to protect yourself from having to take a position on something you know little about, keep a low profile and don’t do anything to call attention to yourself

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Because your attitude tends to be influenced by your colleagues, mingle only with friends who have a positive outlook on life. Avoid the bigmouths and bores.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) A healthy curiosity can prove to be a big asset, so don’t hesitate to ask some questions about anything that might interest you. You could learn something that’ll be of great value. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) An associate might have something of great interest to offer that could be of benefit to someone who knows how to promote it. If you know such a person, offer to make the introduction.

HORMONES 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.

Time for a Treat! Moderately Confused

PEDICURE

Bridge by Phillip Alder Bob Hope said, “Bigamy: The only crime where two rites make a wrong.” In today’s deal, NorthSouth reached the wrong contract, but the right defense was still needed to defeat it. South was in five clubs. West led the heart nine. Declarer won with dummy’s king, played a spade to his ace, then ran the club nine to East’s ace. What did East do next? After North opened one diamond, East thought about making a takeout double. But he knew that if his partner advanced in clubs, they would surely be in the wrong strain. So he sensibly overcalled in his five-card major. South responded two clubs,

which he might have done with only nine or 10 points in competition. Now North jumped to three spades. Because two spades would have been natural and forcing, three spades was a splinter bid, showing four-card club support, game-going values, and a singleton (or void) in spades. South, with no heart stopper, jumped to five clubs. To be honest, it is tough to get to three no-trump. When East won the third trick with his singleton trump ace, there was only one lead to defeat the contract. He had to choose the heart queen. This locked declarer in the dummy, unable to take another club finesse. South called for a low diamond,

includes paraffin wax but East won with his ace and led another heart, allowing West to score his club queen. Finally, note that to make the contract, South had to lead a low club from the dummy at trick two, bringing down East’s ace. But who would find that?
