Bumper crop harvests optimism RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

It’s a picture postcard image of the Okanagan — row after row of carefully cultivated trees, and bright red apples delicately clinging to limbs. Harvest time is well underway, and growers couldn’t be more enthusiastic with what they’re finding as they strap on picking bags and climb the ladders. “It’s a beautiful looking crop,” said Alan Gatzke, whose family owns Gatzke Orchards in Oyama. And the driving force behind conditions has been the arrival of traditional fall weather. Without the cooler temperatures — particularly at night — those red shades that are so popular with consumers don’t take hold. “The colour is coming on hard. The fruit is really nice,” said Gatzke. In fact, there have been few serious obstacles facing growers this year. Scald from a blazing sun didn’t materialize during the summer and the hail storms stayed away. “This has been a fairly smooth season for us,” said Dave Dobernigg, who farms in the BX. “We found workers when we needed them and we did an extra planting of trees in the spring.” It’s a significant departure from last year when Dobernigg was faced with a virtual loss after hail hammered his 30 acres. Fruit was shredded, branches and leaves ripped away. “I actually have a crop this year,” he says. But farming wouldn’t be farming without some challenges. In many cases, apples stopped growing in July. “The size of the fruit is an issue,” said Gatzke. Theories exist as to why apples didn’t continue to size under the warm summer sun and the crisp autumn nights. “I think it was the timing of pollination in the spring.

Lobbying keeps city busy at UBCM “We want to talk about roads, water and governance issues.� — Wayne Lippert “We want to bring him up to speed on where we’re at, and we want to find solutions.� In terms of governance, discussions will revolve around changes to Greater Vernon’s water utility and not amalgamating the local jurisdictions. “I’m not looking to beat that drum because they know my views on it already,� said Lippert.

Council can meet with cabinet ministers at other times of the year, but Lippert insists that UBCM simplifies the process. “You can meet with a number of ministers during one time period,� he said, adding that some issues cross over various agencies. “With water, licenses are done through the Ministry of Environment but devolution

Thieves break into hut Morning Star Staff

RCMP officers are investigating two cases of criminal activity in the Lumby area. Police responded last week to a break-in at a quonset hut in the 500 block of Mabel Lake Road. “The thieves entered and stole a number of Dewalt power tools, torque wrenches and impact wrenches,” said Cpl. Henry Proce. The door to the quonset was unlocked. “Even if you live on a farm in the country, don’t assume you are immune to this sort of crime,” said Proce. Also last week, someone made a determined effort to steal an unlocked pickup on Pine Street. “The ignition was heavily damaged as was the steering column,” said Proce. “For some reason, the culprit was not successful in getting the vehicle started.” Anyone with information on these incidents is asked to call the Lumby RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Physician moving from Enderby RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A physician is leaving Enderby and that’s fuelling efforts to find a replacement. The Interior Health Authority is actively recruiting after it learned that one of the doctors at the community health centre would leave in November. “There’s a lot of positives about the community and the clinic,” said Andrew Hughes, IHA’s community integration health services administrator. “We are a site that will attract physicians.” But Hughes admits

“It’s definitely a concern. It will have an impact on us.” — Dee Wejr that finding a doctor could take some time as communities across the province and Canada are facing similar circumstances. “The reality is physician recruitment is difficult.” If a permanent doctor is not located before November, the options

include an interim physician or the existing nurse practitioner at the clinic. “We are actively looking at an interim structure,” said Hughes. There are currently doctors in Enderby — three at the health centre and three in private practice.

“It’s definitely a concern. It will have an impact on us,” said Mayor Dee Wejr of losing a physician. “We have an older population and a higher percentage of seniors than other communities.” Wejr will speak to IHA to see if the city can assist with recruitment, and she believes the North Okanagan lifestyle will help draw a doctor. The three doctors at the community health centre work under contract with IHA and not on a fee-for-service basis. A new contract

CORD considers Lake Watch RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Boaters could soon come under increased scrutiny on Okanagan and Wood lakes. The Central Okanagan Regional District board is considering establishing a Lake Watch program so the public can report improper boating activities. “We want to educate people about not doing unsafe things on the lakes,” said James Baker, Lake Country director. Among the concerns are speeding, boats getting too close to kayakers and swimmers and operating vessels while intoxicated. “People are doing some really stupid

If the public reports an incident, authorities may pursue enforcement. The CORD initiative would be similar to a program the Vernon RCMP Safe Communities Unit operates on the Shuswap River and Kalamalka Lake. “There is a strict

reporting criteria and protocol to follow and, if warranted, these types of occurrences will be reported to the police for follow-up investigation,” states a brochure from the Vernon Safe Communities Unit. “The program is not designed to be punitive but to be proactive by assisting the education of all boaters to do so in a safe and responsible manner.” CORD’s original

goal was just Okanagan Lake, but Baker insists there needs to be a focus beyond that. “Wood Lake is one of the areas where there is the most conflict,” he said. “It’s a busy lake for wakeboarders but it’s still a fishing lake.” CORD’s crime prevention co-ordinator will now work with member municipalities about the possible budget impact of the program.

Scam targets computer ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

A Vernon woman is warning residents about a new phone scam where a caller tries to gain access to your personal computer Tanya Kaempf was at home last Friday when her phone rang at around 10:20 a.m. There was no number on her phone’s call display. “On the line was a sweet young lady who had an accent and claimed to be from a technical support company that provided support for Windows,” said Kaempf. “She said they had been receiving many calls from Windows users who had corrupt files, major problems with their computers or whose computers had crashed, and that the research department was looking into it further. “She said 90 per cent of the problems were in our ‘state.’ I said, ‘what state would that be?’ and she did know I was in British Columbia, so she got a point there.” Saying she’s fairly proficient at computers and savvy about funny phone calls, Kaempf decided she wanted to see where the woman with the accent was going with the phone call. She fired up her computer, and the woman told her to go into her “Run Windows” window, type in “eventvwr,” which is the computer’s event viewers, and click on Applications. “As soon as you do that, I got a huge dropdown window with a whole bunch of “X” error warnings and yellow warning yield signs,” said Kaempf.

“She asked me how many I had on my list. I quickly scanned it and said “about 60.” She said, “Ma’am, those are the corrupt files and we can assist you. “I was looking at the source and they were like Google update, and security centre. It just seemed odd.” The woman then asked Kaempf to click on Safari, an Internet browser, but Kaempf uses Internet Explorer. “She wanted me to connect to the Internet and when I did she would transfer me to the technical department who could assist me,” said Kaempf. “I said, “Well, actu-

ally, this computer is not hooked up to the Internet, and that’s true, we haven’t had this computer hooked up for about six months. I thought she’d direct me to a website but that wasn’t even an option offered.” The woman asked if Kaempf could hook up to the Internet, and when told no, she said, “Sorry, but unfortunately, we won’t able to assist you. Thank you for your time.” “She was wanting access to my computer,” said Kaempf. “Who knows what she would have gotten?” The woman did say she was calling from

India, where they are 11 hours ahead. Kaempf was going to report the call to Phonebusters, but had trouble getting through. North OkanaganShuswap Crime Stoppers Society spokesman Gord Molendyk said Kaempf did the right thing. “If you didn’t call for help about your computer, why would you give it to someone who calls, saying they’re from a company and have been receiving reports?” said Molendyk. “Generally, that’s a red flag. People always try to find ways to scam individuals out of their money.”

Valley celebrates fall wine festival

JUDIE STEEVES Black Press

Over its 30-year history the Okanagan’s wine festivals have evolved from a single weekend fall festival to three annual ones that are 10-day events, and a fourth that is going through a major change. After nine years as a weekend festival held solely at Silver Star Mountain out of Vernon, plans are for the summer festival to morph into a valley-wide event that will likely be held in July rather than the beginning of August, says one of the Okanagan Wine Festival Society’s organizers, Blair — Blair Baldwin Baldwin. “Times and economics have changed, and it’s time for the summer festival to grow,” he said. The fall festival is still the flagship, with continued growth in attendance and sales every year over the previous one. Last year, he says it’s estimated there was an economic impact of $2 million in measurable sales throughout the valley over the 10 days. It’s the only major wine festival in North America held during harvest, the most exciting, but hectic time of year in the wine industry. “It’s nuts, but we began that way and as new wineries came along, they just got used to it,” said Baldwin. “It’s organized chaos for wineries, but it gives consumers an opportunity to see a winery in operation; to capture the excitement around harvest,” he commented. “It’s interactive.” The festival runs Sept. 30 through Oct. 10 with more than 150 events throughout the valley,

supported now by more than 100 wineries. A new event this year will be a competition amongst the valley’s young chefs sponsored by Saputo Cheese, makers of the award-winning Alexis de Portneuf Fine Cheese. Each of the competitors will be challenged to create a new dish, either appetizer, main or dessert, using at least 25 per cent cheese. This event is being held at the Okanagan College Culinary Arts Centre in Kelowna, and it’s organized by the Okanagan Chefs Association, who will also provide the professional judges, with a money award from Saputo going to the top chef. Consumers will also be invited to judge their favourite dish, at a tasting and wine pairing event at the college Oct. 5. For more information, go to www.thewinefestivals.com.

Referendum it is

T

hanks to Internet technology, and a little bit of imagination, I’ve managed to get my hands on the transcript of the Liberal strategy meeting that led to the decision to go to referendum next September on the HST..... Premier: “OK guys, this is a fine mess we’ve gotten ourselves into. How do we get out of it?” Strategist Bigwig (SB): “Resign?” Premier: “Gee, thanks SB. I was kind of hoping for something a little bit short of that.” SB: “Right, chief. Just kidding.” Strategist Bigwig In Training (SBIT): “Well, as I see it, we have two options. Take it to the Glenn Mitchell House and let the MLAs vote on it and take our lumps. Or go to referendum in a year and we’re at the mercy of the voters.” Premier: “Are we paying this guy? Great grasp of the obvious. But which way do we go grasshopper?” SBIT: “Well, seeing how you asked. I think we should put it to a free vote in the Legislature. Naturally all the Liberal MLAs, being free, will toe the party line and the HST lives on and we all move on and continue to govern until the next election when everybody will have forgotten all about this mess.” Premier: “Except the vote sparks Vander Zalm and Delaney to start their recall campaigns and we lose half our MLAs and it forces an election and the Socialists take over. Or better yet the Zalm and Delaney ride this resentment wave all the way to the polls and the new and improved Socred Retread Party wins the day and the Liberal Party is, well, toast. Any other ideas?” SB: “Well, that leaves the referendum option, which puts everything off for a year and it’s not binding anyways so........”

MITCHELL’S MUSINGS

Premier: “Yeah but it costs $30 million and we have this stupid thing hanging over our heads for a year.” SB: “But it’s a year away. In political terms that’s like an ice age. It at least buys us some time to sell this thing, get rid of all that misinformation that people still believe about the HST, and, well, people will get used to it and they can’t keep up this protest forever, can they?” Premier: “Aren’t you the one that advised we slip this HST thing in during the summer right after the election when no one’s paying attention and we collect all the money from the feds, no questions asked?” SB: “No, you fired that guy.” Premier: “Oh, right. OK, say we go to referendum. That sounds like we’re actually caring what the people think, that’s a good thing, right?” SBIT: “And we could even up the ante and make it binding.” Premier: “Hmmm. That sounds like we’re really democratic. A little risky though don’t you think? Has anyone in recorded political history voted in favour of a tax? Why would they?” SB: “Well, we have a year to sell it. People will start getting their HST cheques soon and business already likes it and we can get rid of it for non-profits and other unpopular items.” Premier: “It’s still a long shot. People don’t seem to trust us anymore let alone trying to get them to vote in favour of a tax. How did Chretien get away with not killing the GST after he said he would anyway?” SBIT: “Well he was pretty popular and had a common touch with the people and.......” Premier: “What’s that supposed to mean?” SB: “Nothing chief. So what do we do? It seems to me the referendum is our only hope.” Premier: “But it’s such a long shot.” SB: “Well there’s always that resignation thing?” Premier: “Referendum it is.”

Cash? Check. Keys? Check. A safe ride home? People heading out for a night on the town will need to plan for transportation if they intend to imbibe. The government’s tougher drinking driving laws not only put the boots to drivers with blood alcohol readings over .08 but also take aim at those in the .05 to .08 range, who can lose their car for three days and face a $200 fine. Yes, but these tougher laws are needed. Something has to be done to prevent the needless deaths of people. But are they enough? Will they work? And will they only affect the people who were likely to follow the old rules more than the scofflaws? Certainly, these rules will stop law-abiding citizens from having a second glass of wine at dinner. Many may just stay home to avoid the embarrassment of having their car impounded for blood-alcohol readings that are less than the legal limit. Who wants to take the chance? These individuals are likely to curtail their socializing rather than go out, because cab fare is costly. More people staying at home is not necessarily a bad thing if it cuts down on needless deaths. But there are some who question whether these tougher laws will stop hard-core drunk drivers who have nothing to lose. Many already have multiple offences stacked up against them. Once again, well-meaning legislation may hurt unintended targets like restaurants and their responsible patrons, while missing those who most flagrantly abuse already existing laws. — Black Press

Bring on the night buses

I

feel I need to address some of the issues concerning bus transit to Okanagan College and UBC Okanagan raised by former Okanagan College student, Ryan Plouffe, in The Morning Star. I think Mayor Garlick is quite right to exercise some caution about implementing another bus to UBCO at this point, especially before addressing some significant local issues first. My greatest concern is that we do not have any bus service at night to the Vernon campus of Okanagan College. We’ve been asking for it for close to a decade, if not longer. The last bus leaves here at 5:48 p.m. And yet we have an increasing number of students who either attend night classes here, or would like to attend night classes but cannot because we have no service. It seems to me that this lack of service to Vernon’s own post-secondary institution should be addressed before putting on another bus to UBCO. The main problem here has nothing to do with the value of either institution. Let’s get that straight right at the start. Both UBC Okanagan and Okanagan College are superior institutions that each contribute enormously to the educational, cultural and economic life of this valley and

all its communities. Since 2007, two years after the division of OUC into these two institutions, Okanagan College has almost doubled its student enrolments, including here in Vernon. We have done this by diversifying our program offerings, initiating new credentials in health, in trades, in academic diplomas, in the new possibility to complete a bachelor of business administration degree right here in Vernon, in Continuing Studies certificates, in the flexibility of our AACP upgrading programs, and in our expanding international program. In real numbers, that means that when we are running full tilt. There are approximately 1,000 students enrolled in programs at the Vernon

ONGOING STRUGGLE The Charter of Rights and Freedoms makes Canada a beacon of hope for people in search of a new beginning. The journey towards a peaceful, all-inclusive society is progressing in incremental steps. We can all stand on guard for Canada by being willing to discuss differing ideas and by negotiating reasonable compromises and sometimes by simply agreeing to disagree. Multiculturalism exists in large part because dogmatic religious beliefs have been separated from the pragmatic reasoning needed to successfully govern a nation of global immigrants. There are some who argue that extending tolerance to those who are intolerant will lead to the destruction of tolerance. French reactionaries once rallied around the slogan, “No freedom for those who do not believe in freedom.” We must not allow freedoms to be taken away in the name of saving freedom. All Canadians must be willing to energetically

campus. We are essentially bursting at the seams up here, and we like that. It’s a nice problem to have. In the long run, we will expand our facilities and programs here to meet even more needs, but for now we’re thrilled that we are connecting so well with this region and its communities. Put simply, even if we do not have residences here yet, or we are short a building or two, the least we could do is solve issues that are solvable, such as having buses serve this campus at night. That would be great. Another issue that must be raised in this discussion of access to campuses is there are at least as many Vernon and region students trying to attend Okanagan College’s KLO campus as there are students from

oppose those few who discredit their own beliefs by threatening our democracy with violence. Every time a Canadian stands up for his or her rights or speaks out in defence of a stranger’s rights, Canada’s beacon glows a little brighter. Lloyd Atkins PEANUT POOL I wrote a letter in July to urge the Lakeview Pool management to improve the hours at the Peanut Pool. The majority of the parents I had spoken with agreed that the 11 a.m. opening time was painfully late. The response I got from the letter has been surprising, including a lovely call from Doug Ross (the recreation services manager), an encouraging conversation with Jim Bailey (the NORD facilities manager) and many comments from local parents. I seem to have opened an interesting can of worms. I was also happy to see a couple of recent letters

here attending UBCO. These Vernon students and their needs have never really been recognized in these discussions. Right now, the best they can do is take the bus to UBCO, then begin the transfer it takes to get from UBCO to KLO. So Ryan is correct in pointing out that there is a need to get students to Kelowna for certain programming, but that need should identify both institutions, not just UBCO. And again, my own strong feeling about this situation is this: solve the problems in a sequence that makes sense. Insure that the campus here in Vernon is served, then make sure that our students who are attending UBCO and Okanagan College at KLO are served as well. But do it in that order. I am really grateful that Ryan wrote his letter because his opinion matters to me. I am also grateful that Mayor Garlick has supported this campus by speaking out on this issue and by pointing out sides of it that are significant, and sometimes hard to see. John Lent Regional Dean North Okanagan Okanagan College

from dads who would like the pool to continue to be open until 7 p.m. I had thought the park management wouldn't consider expanding the hours. But after speaking with Jim Bailey at NORD I know that that doesn't need to happen. If there is a strong enough demand from parents, Jim told me, he would be willing to expand the pool hours. So please, if you ever take your kids to the Peanut Pool, consider sending an e-mail to NORD. Let them know what hours would work best for you and your family. It's fantastic to see that a few involved parents can make a difference. I encourage you to make your voice heard. If no one says anything, then nothing changes. But if a few of us take the time to speak up, the Peanut Pool will be more accessible for all of our little ones next summer. Erin St. Jean

THANK YOU I would like to thank everyone involved in getting the second UBCO bus. With the new extended bus schedule, students are able to make it on time to their 8 a.m. classes and also make it to the bus after late classes. As much debate has been going on about the costs of the new bus, I feel appreciation should be awarded to those who felt the need to stand up for the students as well as other citizens of the Greater Vernon area.

Jamie and Judy Kidston accept their Century Farm Award from Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA.

CORRECTION NOTICE

There are price errors on page 5 of Re/Max Real Estate Guide. The correct prices for 2518 - 12th Street should be $409,900 and 1704 - 41st Street should be $199,777. The Morning Star apologizes for any inconvenience this error may have caused.

Award honours Kidston farm RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Growing fruit is quite literally in Jamie Kidston’s blood. The Coldstream farmer continues to work the land his grandfather purchased in 1904, and he recently received a Century Farm Award from the Ministry of Agriculture. “It’s indicative that there’s a future in the industry,” said Kidston. “If the industry has kept going for 100 years, there’s no reason it can’t be around for another 100 years.” When Kidston’s grandfather John started the operation, there was about 100 acres. Now, there’s 40 acres of honeycrisp, ambrosia, golden delicious, Spartan, Nicola and gala apples. “My grandfather planted trees 30-by-30feet and now they’re three-feet-by-10-feet,” said Kidston of new growing techniques over the last century. “You have to keep up and keep evolving. Agriculture doesn’t sit still.” Kidston took over the farm from his father, James, in 1977. An engineer by trade, it’s not a career he originally contemplated. “When I got out of school, I swore I didn’t want to move sprinkler pipes but after a time

it seemed OK. It’s the best place in the world to live,” said Kidston. Century Farm Awards honour pioneers whose farms or ranches have been in families for 100 years or more. “The Kidston farm and other Okanagan orchards like it are part of B.C.’s proud agricultural heritage,” said Eric Foster, VernonMonashee MLA. “For well over a century, this farm has been growing food for British Columbians. The Kidston family is working hard to ensure the legacy of farming and agriculture in B.C. carries on into the future.”

Costs have skyrocketed for emergency repairs to part of Lake Country’s water system. The budget for the Vernon Creek spillway has climbed from $15,000 to $165,000. “It was a bit of a surprise,” said Mayor James Baker. “The spillway is deteriorating faster than our engineers expected.” The spillway — located Guenther halfway between Swalwell and Duck lakes — is part of the Vernon Creek intake facility. Constructed in 1970, it consists of a small reservoir and a screen house which feeds water from Swalwell Lake to the Eldorado reservoir. According to the district, the spillway is a key part of the reservoir dam because it serves as an overflow during high stream flows. “It’s part of our waterway and needs repairing,” said Coun. Noreen Guenther, adding that the extra money will come out of the water capital works reserve. “There’s a lot more problems than when we first budgeted for it.” Staff noticed degradation of the concrete surface last year, but inspections this spring revealed that the concrete is breaking down along the entire surface of the spillway. “In some spots, the concrete degradation is exposing the reinforcing steel which greatly increases the work required to do a proper repair,” said Greg Buchholz, operations manager, in a written report. “Our hypothesis for why rapid degradation has occurred over the last couple of years is due to freeze-thaw cycles that the spillway is now being exposed to, but was not in the past when water was constantly flowing over the spillway.” The district wants to continue to operate without ongoing water release over the spillway so the repairs will include concrete that can withstand freeze-thaw exposure.

Amanda Blair was the winner of the Swan Lake Automile megasale car giveaway, presented to her at Vernon Nissan Monday by (from left) Brad Roberts, Chad Bachelder, general manager Curt Jensen, Paul Clark, Brandyn Dixon and Brian Westwell

Customer drives home a winner JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Cleaning houses for a living means 25-yearold Amanda Blair relies on her car to get her from home to home. Unfortunately, her wheels weren’t the most reliable. “It wasn’t really that great of a car,” said Blair, an Armstrong resident. But now Blair doesn’t have to worry about her car breaking down on the way to work, thanks to the Swan Lake Automile dealers. Blair is the winner of the recent Swan Lake Automile megasale car giveaway – a Ford Tempo. The sale is put on by Swan Lake Motors, Sunshine Honda, Royal Volkswagen, Vernon Nissan and Vernon Motorsports. Although the Tempo isn’t brand new, as it came in on trade, Vernon Nissan general manager Curt Jensen says it was a well-cared for vehicle. And he’s excited to see it awarded to deserving hands. “She needed a car and it just worked out perfect. It’s always nice when it works out that somebody who needs it gets it, rather than someone who really doesn’t need it.” Traditionally, the

automile sale gives away a TV as a customer appreciation, but this year they decided to up the ante with a car. Blair was at the sale

and didn’t think much as she entered her name into the draw. “I just thought, ‘yeah, whatever, something to do, you never know,’” said Blair.

The Vernon

LEGION

She never expected to be the lucky winner. “Actually my mom got the phone call and she interrupted my shower. I was in shock, I didn’t believe her.”

• Install a sump pump or backflow valve. A sump pump takes water from your home and pushes it outside to an area on the property where the water can be absorbed. A backflow valve can be installed on your home’s main sewer connection which automatically closes when the main sewer is backed-up.

How can we keep our home and health in clear?

• Check your external drains yearly to catch deterioration and blockage before it becomes a problem.

Regardless of the type of sewer system a home uses, whether it’s a private system such as, a septic tank or a public system with municipal sewer lines, you need to perform regular maintenance.

• Last but not least, ensure you have adequate insurance protection. Not all policies provide coverage for a backed up external drain, such as, a sewer or septic tank, so it’s best to review your coverage thoroughly with your insurance agent. Careful planning can help you avoid a potentially messy situation. It makes sense to spend time being pro-active to make sure your most valuable assets – your home and your family – are protected.

• Remove leaves and other debris from storm drains to prevent flooding.

News Officers destroy two bears RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Threatening livestock guaranteed a death sentence for two bears in Coldstream. The two-year-old animals were destroyed Thursday after they entered a building on Coldstream Creek Road, near Cosens Bay Road, and killed a chicken. “With livestock involved, they would continue to become a problem for other people,” said conservation officer Mike Richardson of why the bears were destroyed. The bears were up in a tree when conservation and police officers arrived on the scene. “The owner of the property said that they had been around for about three weeks,” said Richardson. “They were feeding on oak nuts from the tree.” Other food sources were also close at hand in the neighbourhood, including garbage, corn and fruit. This is a critical time for bears as they are preparing for winter hibernation and need to build up fat reserves. “They are constantly feeding and looking for food,” said Richardson. To avoid visits from bears, residents are urged to clean up ripe fruit and keep pet food, garbage, barbecues and compost out of reach. Bird feeders should also be taken down as they also provide a source of food forbears. If a bear is threatening people or livestock, the public can call conservation officers at 1-800-952-7277.

Trustees fight for census JENNIFER SMITH Black Press

Central Okanagan school trustees say the long-form census must continue and they are joining the fight to stop the federal government from dispensing with it. The board has voted to advise the federal minister of industry how important the census data is to the dayto-day operations of the school board. “This is a very important piece (source of information) that our staff use in determining our numbers down the road,” said trustee Jeff Watson. “I haven’t seen our new proposed census form and I hate to see that information lost.” Although the decision to cancel the longer format of the census has already been made, politicians and lobbyists, like this board of education, have not let the issue die. The government has explained that, with the cancellation of the longform census, Canadians will be given a shortform version with less personal questions about things like the number of people in a given household and the income of those residents. There will no longer be a threat of prosecution, should a person choose not to provide information, and only a handful of households will be asked to voluntarily provide the same amount of information as the current extended questionnaire asks. However, for organizations which relied on the data to make their own statistical analysis, there are concerns this could cause problems down the line.

 

“I hate to see that information lost.” — Jeff Watson The Central Okanagan School District, for example, employs a demographer whose job it is to accurately predict enrolment numbers in the future,

Program builds lasting experience CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Lynne Anderson got her dream house, Travis Nelson and his classmates in the 2010 Okanagan College Construction program learned how to build a house and the community gained skilled trades people who will help provide quality housing for years to come. Nelson had been out of school for two years and working at a variety of jobs when a cousin told him about the program. “They teach you how to build a house from the ground up. It’s all hands on and you practise everything you need to know about building. The class started with just a hole in the ground on this lot and everybody got a chance to do everything,” he said. “Our instructor, Rob Barton, was really good and patient and has a great sense of humour so it was great to work with him. You start from the beginning and get to know all the tools and materials and techniques. I feel confident that when I go to work and my boss asks me to do something, I will really know what to do. It also helps you to know what to do around your own house and be able to help friends and neighbours with things. “The other thing that Rob was really good at was teaching us what was going to happen in the real workplace and how to get along.” Barton is the instructor for the Residential Construction Program/ framing Technician. The

CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR

Travis Nelson, Okanagan College Residential Construction program student, gets a door ready to hang in the house that was the program project. program starts with two months in the classroom and shop learning safety and the basics of working on small projects. Students do not need to have any previous experience with power tools or other building skills. The program continues with four months working on a building project in the community. At the end the students are ready to start an apprenticeship or go to work in residential construction. They are eligible to write the residential construction framing technician certificate exam. The class of 2010 had five high school students who were getting dual credit towards graduation and preparing for an apprenticeship. There were eight mature students and three women in the class. “It’s a really good experience for the students to work on a real project. Last year, we worked on the Habitat

New!

for Humanity Under One Roof project and before that we worked on a house for NOCLS,” said Barton. “It’s quite gratifying for me to see how the students progress. We see some of the students from the first year getting close to their journeyman certificate now. There will always be a need for skilled tradespeople. Right now we are looking for another project for the class that starts in February, preferably something non-profit in the community although this year we did do a private house and the owner was very pleased with it.” Owner Heath Anderson built the house for his mother. “I submitted a letter of interest to the college and made the short list of applications and the project fit the parameters. This has been a really rewarding experience and a lot of

fun. They are slow and meticulous because they are learning and the quality of the work is excellent,” he said. In fact, he gets compliments on the work from the other tradespeople involved in the construction. “Overall, they’ve done an excellent job and they can be proud of this for the rest of their lives as they drive by and know it looks good because of them. My mother used to come over and give them treats. She’s so excited about moving in,” said Anderson. “I would thoroughly recommend this program to students or to anyone who might want to provide a project for them. It’s been all positive and so neat to see so many young people eagerly learning lifelong skills. I wish I had been that smart when I was their age to take a class like this. This program is a credit to the college and the community.” Rob Kjarsgaard is the program administrator for trades and apprenticeship Okanagan College. “The best way to learn the trades is with a hands-on focus. The response to the program, from the community and the students. Most of the students go on to work in the field at an average wage of $17 per hour. We are proud to be able to train local young people in a trade they can do right here at home,” he said. Okanagan College also offers trades training programs in welding, plumbing, electrical and aircraft maintenance.

Program organizers are looking for a new project, which should be shovel ready by April 4, 2011, see www.okanagan.bc.ca/reson. There will be an open house at the house at 1800-B-35th Avenue on Wednesday from 3 to 5 p.m. to celebrate the class of 2010. Prospective students and anyone wanting to submit a project for consideration for the next class is invited to attend.

Legal Briefs Q: The wedding was beautiful; the marriage was hell! How do I get out?

A: Unfortunately, this is a common story, but it happens. You need to know your rights and what to expect after the divorce. Each situation is different and needs to be considered on a case-bycase basis. Too often do lawyers wind up trying to pick up the pieces after one of those do-it-yourself divorces because the parties didn’t get proper legal advice along the way. Talk to us to get it right.

Celebrating a great romance On Aug. 10, 2010 Florence (Honey) and Harold Gillette celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. Family and friends gathered at their Mabel Lake cottage for a feast on the beach Aug. 8 to mark this momentous occasion. Florence and Harold were born in the same small Saskatchewan community of Bateman. Harold’s family moved to the Vernon area when he was seven and Florence’s family followed when she was 17. The couple was united in marriage at a garden wedding at the bride’s home in Lumby. Attendants were Peggy Johnson, sister of the bride, and Louis Hildt. Harold joined the army and after training in Vernon, Victoria and Kingston was sent overseas to England and Holland. Their first son, Bill, was born in Kingston and their daughter, Marilyn, was born while Harold was overseas. After the war the family settled and built their home on a South Vernon acreage. Three more children — Gary in ’47, Don in ’49 and Wendy in ’51 — and their family was complete. The family has grown to 52 with the addition of 13 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and all the in-laws. Florence taught at the United Church Kindergarten until 1972 and Harold retired from the City of Vernon in 1978 after 33 years of work. They spent 21 retirement years with summers at their Mabel Lake cottage and winters as snowbirds in Apache Junction, Arizona. These past 11 years they have enjoyed summers at Mabel Lake and winters at their daughter’s residence in Coldstream. In honour of Florence and Harold’s 70th anniversary, their daughter-in-law, Arlene Gillette, wrote the following poem. True Love Like Tristan and Isolde Genevieve and Ivanhoe Robin Hood and Maid

Putting the right label on it PETER KENDAL Special to The Morning Star

Nick and Jean Homeniuk: married Sept. 30, 1945.

The power of love Nick and Jean Homeniuk will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary Sept. 30, 2010. Their five children, nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and all of their friends and relatives wish them all the very best on achieving this fantastic milestone in their lives. Cause I am your lady, And I am your man Whenever you reach for me, I’ll do all that I can... “Congratulations on your 65th wedding anniversary.”

Shakespeare in As you like it said “And one man in his time plays many parts.” I have always been impressed by this quotation and the passage in which it occurs, but until recently I had never considered it as anything other than a concise statement of what happens to any person in their lifetime. Then, mainly due to watching the background to an Australian soccer match on TV, I began to think more about it from my personal viewpoint. What set me thinking was a billboard at the game between Brisbane and Newcastle, Australia, which had the word “Novocastrian on it. It may mean little or nothing to you the reader, but you see I am a Novocastrian. It is a word derived from the Latin and means “new castle” (the castle was new at the time of the Norman conquest!)Today it means somebody who was born in or lives in the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in Northern England. I qualify as such a person for I was born there. Most people from there and the surrounding area are known as “Geordies,” a name that there is no clear derivation for. So there was I brand-new to the world and I already

had two labels applicable to me as well as others like British, English, son and grandson! Nothing much in the way of labels being applicable to me happened until I went at age 11 to grammar school. There I became a Vinovian, another link to Latin as Vinovium was the Roman name for our town, Bishop Auckland.Actually I became an Old Vinovian when I left the school, just as I became an Old Johnstonian when I left Johnston Grammar School in Durham City, where, as a citizen of Durham I became a Dunelmian. My next labels were all applied during my obligatory two years National Service in the Royal Air Force. I started at recruit training by being labelled by Corporal Mayne as a “Thing,” and Corporal Beange as an “Omadhaun” (Gaelic for fool or simpleton). Then it took me 20 weeks to be called a Wop (Wireless Operator) and another 14 weeks to be labelled a “Wop DF Op

A,” (Direction Finding Intelligence specialization). I still wonder how I qualified for anything connected with intelligence but I suppose the Air Force knew best. After my National Service, the most interesting and challenging label that I acquired in this time was one which stayed as most important for the next 47 years, that of “Husband.” Beside that all others paled into insignificance! When I went up to Scotland to work I got a new light on the meaning of “Geordie.” This was “A Scotsman with his brains knocked out!” But the traditional Highland hospitality meant that soon I considered myself to be as good a Highlander as any. I got a new label there in Inverness of “Father,” not by becoming a priest but by a more natural method. There I could also boast the title of “Innkeeper,” as we kept a bed and breakfast in the Highlands. This was a label that I was happy to sport, but soon I had to change it for one

which read “Bruneian,” which lasted for eight good years and earned me the labels of Expat, Orang Puteh (white man), and Tuan (Boss). Then my family and I acquired new labels as “Immigrants,” when we came to Canada. Later we were proud to be labeled “Canadians,” when we got our citizenship certificates. Now I have just two

Flat start spells doom for Knights ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

They are the defending champs until someone knocks them off. And, right now, nobody has taken down the defending Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, B.C. and Western Canadian champion Revelstoke Grizzlies. A quick start helped the Grizz improve their early KIJHL record to a perfect 5-0 with a 5-2 win over the host North Okanagan Knights in a divisional first-place showdown in front of 310 fans Friday night at the Nor-Val Sports Centre. The loss snapped North Okanagan’s three-game winning streak, and evened their record at 3-3 in the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference’s Shuswap Division, four points behind Revelstoke. “The first period was our worst period of the season,” said Knights head coach Sylvain Leone. “It was an extremely disappointing start to a game we were all looking forward to. We had a big fan base, the building was full, lot of good energy, we just came out flat.” Brooks Christensen, who starred for the Vernon Tigers junior lacrosse team in the summer, opened the scoring at 7:15 of the first period for the Grizzlies, with an assist to Vernon’s Devon Hascarl. Revelstoke increased its lead to 2-0 with a killer unassisted shorthanded goal from Lake Country’s Brad

Friedrich with just 32 seconds left in the opening period. Rick Soo got the Knights back into the game with his second goal of the year on a set-up from Patrick Chore at 6:24 on the powerplay. But the Grizzlies would restore the two-goal lead on the man advantage at 13:59 when Lake Country’s Reid Blinkhorn beat North Okanagan netminder Chris Henry. Vernon’s Colton Dahlen and Hascarl drew assists. The Knights made a game of it early in the third, with a two-man advantage, as Shawn Holliday pocketed his team-leading fifth of the year with assists going to Sean Mulcahy and Soo. The Grizzlies finished off the game with last-minute goals from Derek Grimm (empty net) and Brendan Urban. “We split the period with them in the second, outplayed them in the third and we pulled the goalie to try to tie the game up,” said Leone. “The score, 5-2, felt a little bit worse than maybe the second and third period was, but certainly they took us to school in the first period.” Henry made 24 saves in taking the loss as his record dropped to 1-2. Cole Buckley made 31 save for the win. North Okanagan took on the Lakers in Penticton Saturday. The Knights visit the Sicamous Eagles Friday before hosting the Kamloops Storm Saturday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m.

Hot goaltender lifts hometown Spruce Kings past Vipers Morning Star Staff

It was a good road game for a young B.C. Hockey League team, but the breaks and bounces didn’t go the Vernon Vipers way Friday night in Prince George. The Spruce Kings scored two first period powerplay goals and added a goal on one of their only two shots of the final period to down the Vipers 3-1 in front of 702 fans at the Prince George

Coliseum. The win was the first of the year for the Spruce Kings, who went 2-7 on the powerplay, and were outshot 45-13 by the Vipers, including 36-6 over the final two periods. “We deserved a better fate,” said Vernon head coach Mark Ferner. “We could have had 50 shots. What are you going to do? We got guys hitting posts, missing

empty nets and that’s where peppered first star Ryan we need to learn to Benitez with 23 be better. When we shots in the third, get these opportuthe only one to nities, we need to beat him was a bear down.” point shot by Chris Bodo Elliot Richardson scored powerplay at 12:52, Mark goals at 10:13 and Basara and Bryce 17:08 to give the Kakoske drawing Kings a 2-0 lead assists. Mark Ferner after 20 minutes. Justin Fillion, After a scoreless with the Spruce second period, the Vipers Kings’ only scoring chance

of the period, beat Blake Voth at 14:58. Vernon was 0-7 with the man advantage, and have given up five powerplay goals in their last two games, both losses. The Vipers, 2-3-0-1 on the year, visited the Quesnel Millionaires Saturday, and return to Prince George today to finish off their three-game swing. In other Interior

Conference action Friday, the Westside Warriors leapfrogged past the Vipers into fourth place with a 3-2 win at Nanaimo. Penticton Vees improved to 4-3 with a 3-1 win at Quesnel. The Mills are 2-2. Powell River shut out Merritt 3-0 with Vernon’s Tyler Steel being named first star in the loss after making 35 saves in goal for the Centennials.

Dye passed away in 1988 and, to be fair to Wray, his Roger Knox number should have been retired immediately after his death by the then-Vernon Lakers organization. I talked to some of Dye’s family, and it would mean a lot to them to have Wayne’s number retired. Same with some of his former Essos’ teammates. And it would mean a lot to some of Dye’s former fans. Myself included. ■ My all-time favourite lacrosse team, the New Westminster Salmonbellies, lost their third consecutive Mann Cup Canadian senior lacrosse final, this time to the Peterborough Lakers in six games. This is bad because I now owe former Morning Star photographer/business editor Tim Fitzgerald – a Peterborough ex-pat – six beverages. And Fitzy keeps gloating about the Lakers’ win and I know he’s going to be unbearable for the next year. Of course, Fitzy, myself and sports editor Kevin Mitchell

Defending champs open up IHL season Morning Star Staff

The defending champions begin defence of their Interior Hockey League title on opening night. The R.E. Postill and Sons Orphans will meet the Collins Group Hornets tonight at 8 p.m. at the Wesbild Centre, one of four games on opening night for the longtime North Okanagan rec hockey league, which will enter 2010-11 down two teams from year ago. “All of the teams are excited to get back on the ice and start up our 2010 season on Sunday night,” said league spokesman Rob Bauml. “We expect another competitive year, and it is always nice to see what new talent moved to town this year. “The league just seems to get better and better each season.” The other opening night game at Wesbild will see the Sutton Group Acadians take on Re/Max Rangers at 9:30 p.m.

Other games on the opening night slate include the Godard Excavating Predators taking on the Silver Star Hitmen at 6:30 at the Priest Valley Arena, followed by the Blackhawks facing the Kal Tire Knights at 8 p.m. Monday night action will see Moe Joes tangle with the Aquatico Bay Bar and Grill Sharks at 9:45 p.m. at the Priest Valley Arena. “We had a bit of a tumultuous planning week as two teams dropped out of the league at the last minute,” said Bauml, explaining that the Armstrong Chiefs and Interior Landscape will not return. “So this puts us down to 13 teams for the season. When our schedule is finally completed, it will be posted on our new website at www.vernonihl. ca.” The other teams in the league this year are the M&K Ready Mix Bruins, Teale Utility Canucks and the Westwood Cabinet Flyers.

– currently hacking his way around Fairview Mountain golf course in Oliver – had to find out about the Mann Cup on the Internet or on TV sports packages. Wouldn’t it be nice to watch Canada’s best lacrosse players in action on TV every September? Couldn’t one of our national networks show the games? TSN and the Score did not respond to my questions about if their networks could and would carry the Mann Cup. I received a phone call from a communications person at Sportsnet who basically said his network sets its scheduling a year ahead, and they have contracts with partners such as the NHL, the poker companies, and Major League Baseball that they have to fulfill. Asked if they could tape delay the games, the guy said they’d have to look at the costs involved to shoot the games and see if it was financially worth it. He did say the company does not discriminate against lacrosse, and that’s true as they show Toronto Rock professional games. Okay, so no Mann Cup. Instead, we’ll get a shot of a guy in a John Deere hat, wearing sunglasses, flipping a poker chip in his fingers, taking five minutes to decide if he’s going to go all in as he holds a King-Eight off-suit. Because THAT’s exciting.

Kellen and Connor, didn’t break Dye’s record. Scott Longstaff didn’t break it. Dallas Drake didn’t break it. Ed Johnstone, John Price, Ernie Gare, Jason Elders, Duane Dennis, Don Murdoch, Ron Areshenkoff, Glen Metropolit, Dave Oliver, Tony Szabo, Ryan Bayda, any number of former Essos, Vikings, Lakers and Vipers didn’t break it. I understand the team has been called the Vipers for 15 years now, but that shouldn’t stop the organization from recognizing one of the alltime greatest hockey players ever to come out of Vernon. So I asked Vipers owner, Dr. Duncan Wray, would the organization look at retiring the No. 8, now worn by rookie defenceman Philip Patenaude? “I wasn’t around when Wayne Dye was here, there’s a lot of history there and it’s certainly something we’d consider,” said Wray in between periods of last week’s home loss to Merritt. “We have options to retire any number of jerseys of players who have been successful over the years and that’s one that comes to the fore. We figured we had to start with somebody who was here and that I knew, and an obvious place to start, for me, was retiring Rob’s jersey.

T

he tradition of retiring uniform numbers in sports is a long one. Every major sport does it. Colleges do it. So do junior organizations. And now, the Vernon Vipers have begun what will likely be a tradition of retiring a worthy jersey number, and they started with four-year veteran, and Vernon native, Rob Short’s No. 20 in a nice ceremony last weekend at the Wesbild Centre. Naturally, when you start something like this, somebody has to be first. And I have nothing against Short, nor do I mean him any disrespect. However... It seems to me – and I’ve written and pushed for this before – that the first number that should be retired belongs to a man who played in Vernon in the 1960s and 70s when the team was known as the Essos. The late Wayne Dye, No. 8. Dye, like Short, a Vernon native, is the all-time leading scorer in Vernon junior hockey history. A total of 325 points, set more than 30 years ago. Let’s face it: Dye’s record will likely never be broken because anybody who can score in the BCHL doesn’t stay around for more than two years before being snapped up by a university, major junior team or pro squad.

Powerlifters pump up business Morning Star Staff

If you need some heavy lifting done, chances are the guys at Vernon’s Predator Barbell training centre would probably be up to the task. Tony Tomra and Barry Antoniow are both worldclass powerlifters with multiple national records and Championships under their belts. Tomra recently returned from the World Raw Powerlifting Championship in Idaho Falls, Idaho, with gold medals around his considerable-sized neck, taking top honours in his weight class and breaking four world records. This brings Tony’s record count to 14 world records in the last four years. Tomra (Master 1, 110-kg class) lifted a competitionhigh total of 635 kg, and had the largest raw Master squat in Canadian history with a 232.5kg lift, and broke the World Pro Division Bench Press and Total record. Raw powerlifting, unlike other weightlifting disciplines, eliminates all equipment, relying solely on the athletes’ brute strength. “This is to see who the strong dogs are,” said Tomra. The sport isn’t just about pure brawn and muscle. There’s a incredible amount of physical, mental and technical skills behind every lift, honed through years of dedication and training. “A lot of people have talent and a lot of people are

Both men have won numerous Canadian championship in powerlifting and bench pressing. strong,” said Tomra. “Some people can just walk in off the street and pick up 400 pounds off the ground. But to pick up 700-plus pounds off the ground, it’s a skill that has to be developed over years of training. Some people have talent, but you need skill, and skill comes with repetitions, hard work and years of consistency.” Even with world records and a gold medal, Tomra was left unsatisfied with his performance at Idaho Falls. “It got me the medal and records I wanted, but this sport is all about personal

gain,” he said. “I know I can do more, I’ve done more in training, it disappoints me that I didn’t put it all together on the platform. “It’s not always about beating other people, it’s about besting yourself. It’s not always about the medal, it’s about always getting better.” Tomra’s training partner, Antoniow, is at the popular Olympia in Las Vegas Saturday to compete against the top-eight bench pressers in North America. Antoniow is a six-time Canadian bench press cham-

pion and is looking forward to get back on the platform with the world’s best. In June, Antoniow had a disappointing showing at the Bench Press Worlds in Killeen, Texas, and plans on redeeming his status in Las Vegas. Predator Barbell is hosting a sanctioned Novice competition on Saturday, Oct. 16 in Vernon at a spot yet to be determined. For more information on powerlifting in the Okanagan Valley and the competition go to www.predatorbarbell. com.

The matches were played at Fulton Secondary. The Panthers defeated the Pleasant Valley Saints of Armstrong 25-9, 25-4 in their opening match. The serving of Mary Rice and Searra Becker

Stache shaves way to ultimate victory Morning Star Staff

If UHF (Ultimate Huck Frisbee) were to be summed up in one word, that word would be wet. Despite all the rain on the Saturday of the event, UHF 2010 still went off without a hitch. A total of 29 teams from across Western Canada hit the fields at Marshall Field, including defending champions Stache and perennial lastplace locals Tight and Bright who have yet to win a game in Vernon. “We come here every year; it’s the only tournament we play,” said Tight and Bright captain Adam Saunders. “We have never won a game but on Saturday we lost 9-7 so that was close.” UHF, now in its 14th year, is one of Vernon’s largest sporting events. “It brings more than 400 people to our area each and every year,” said tournament organizer Andy Collins.

In the playoffs on Sunday, Stache had no problem taking the championship and keeping the trophy in Vernon, winning the final 13-4 over a depleted McLovin squad of Vancouver. “They had some injuries and weren’t able to field their best squad,” said Matt Laporte, Stache captain and Vernon Ultimate legend. “We have played a lot at different tournaments this year and they have beaten us a few times but today it was just our day.” Added Collins: “Everyone loves coming here for this tournament. Year after year we get great people and even the rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of the players. “It was a testament to the City of Vernon staff and the qualities of the fields that with all that rain, we were still able to play Saturday and Sunday.”

Vernon teams met with mixed results in Okanagan Mens 50+ Soccer League action Thursday night. Vernon Silver Stars edged host Lake Country 2-1 at Beasley Park in a close game that saw all of the goals scored in the first half. The Stars opened the scoring on a 25-yard strike from Tim Penaluna, and ageless Al Bensmiller made it 2-0 on a breakaway. Lake Country found the back of the net before halftime. Ray Tims was strong in goal for the Stars, who improved to 15-5-2 on the year. Kal Tire suffered a 2-1 setback against Kelowna, dropping the tiremen’s record to 17-3-2. Joe Jamieson and Gord Anton gave Kelowna a 2-0 lead in the first half, beating fill-in keeper Harry Adam who was playing his first game between the woodwork in 43 years. Kenny Rath, on passes from Jenne Huberts and Ken James, pulled Kal Tire to within one shortly before the intermission.

Vernon paddlers grabbed the top two positions in the last major stand-up paddling (SUP) race of the season in B.C. Wade (Woody) Anderson beat Kevin O’Brien by less than three minutes in the Stock 12-foot-six-inches and under men’s division at the second annual Salmon Run on Okanagan Lake near Penticton. Anderson paddled his way to victory in a time of 1:40:41 on the lone nine-mile course that crossed Okanagan Lake from Peachland, around Rattlesnake Island to Antler Beach and back to Peachland. O’Brien, owner of the Kalvida Surf Shop local SUP store, finished in 1:43:03, 2.5 minutes faster than Chris Hromek of Kelowna. Penticton’s Tina Hoeben won the women’s division in 2:01:20, more than 18 minutes ahead of Pam Young of Penticton, who was second. The race served as a primer for the upcoming Battle of the Paddle in Dana Point, Cal. Oct. 2 and 3. O’Brien and Sheila Sovereign of Vernon will compete.

Hunt ready to retire LEAH BLAIN Black Press

Secretary/treasurer Bruce Hunt is retiring after 13 years with the North OkanaganShuswap School District. Hunt is taking early retirement and board chairperson Bobbi Johnson says they’re sorry to be losing such a valuable asset. “It’s a very sad day for us that we had to acknowledge that he is retiring. We didn’t want to accept it,” she said. “We will miss him immensely and I don’t think anyone in the province can take his place.” Over the years of declining enrolment and fewer dollars, the board has often attributed their good financial state to his innovative ideas for saving money and accurate enrolment forecasting. Hunt said he will miss working with all the staff and he has

enjoyed his years at the district. He says his primary goal was to keep as many dollars in the classroom as he could. Hunt will retire within the next few months when the district finds a replacement.

life B Bottle it now for winter eating CATHI LITZENBERGER Morning Star Columnist

With fall comes our last chance to put up delicious condiments for the winter and early spring seasons. Homemade salsas, pepper jellies, antipasto, chili sauces, sauerkraut and a great variety of pickled vegetables, along with favourite relishes, are only a few that will make a special addition to any family or company meal. They also make wonderful hostess gifts for the holiday season. Today we’re offering a vegetarian antipasto recipe that can safely be canned in a hot water bath. If you’d like a more traditional antipasto you can add the tuna, shrimp or mushrooms after you open your jar, as it is not safe to can antipasto with fish or seafood in the hot water bath method of processing. The salsa recipe is one of my favourites and goes well in any dish calling for salsa. Right now the valley is full of green tomatoes trying hard to ripen in our cooler weather. The relish recipe below will help use some of them up; it’s nice with sandwiches, potatoes, cheese and other entrĂŠes, so give it a try. With Thanksgiving only a couple of weeks away, I’m offering the best pumpkin pie recipe I’ve found to date. Homemade Salsa 8 cups peeled, seeded and chopped Roma tomatoes 4 cups sweet green and yellow peppers, chopped 3 cups chopped onions 1 cup red pepper (hot if you like) chopped 1 cup seeded jalapeno peppers, finely chopped 2 cups cider or regular vinegar (I use half and half) 4 large cloves minced garlic 5-1/2 oz. can of tomato paste 2 tbsp. white sugar 1 tbsp. coarse salt 2 tsp. paprika 1 tsp. oregano 1/2 cup chopped cilantro Remember, always use gloves when working with hot peppers. Combine chopped tomatoes, peppers and onions In large, heavy saucepan, add vinegar, garlic, tomato paste, sugar, salt, paprika, oregano and cilantro to mixture. Stir well and bring to boil, stirring often. Simmer for about 1 hour or until thick enough to coat a spoon. Fill and seal jars. Process in boiling water bath for 20 minutes. Makes 6 - 500ml jars. Best Pumpkin Pie 1 - 10-inch unbaked pie shell 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. ginger 1/2 tsp. mace 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup maple syrup ★ 1 cup scalded condensed milk 2 eggs, well-beaten 1-1/2 cups canned pumpkin Whipped cream ★ can use corn syrup and 1/4 tsp. maple flavouring as a substitute Mix all ingredients together except whipping cream. Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell. Bake in hot oven (450 F for

Morning Star Staff

Most people would not even want to try to imagine what it is like to lose a child during pregnancy or at birth but for many families, it is the tragic reality. Some couples don’t want to talk about it, even for years after, and friends feel awkward discussing it so the hurt is never acknowledged. Dave and Amanda Cabral share their experience to let others in the same situation know they are not alone and to encourage people to attend A Walk to Remember Oct. 2. “We were happy when we found out we were pregnant and things went well until the 18-week check-up and ultrasound,” said Amanda. “Then I knew something was wrong. We got a call from the doctor saying the baby had a hole in the heart and we would have to go to Vancouver. We didn’t know what to expect then, if we would lose the baby, what would happen.” Further tests showed the baby’s kidneys were not developing. While the heart might have been fixed, there was nothing that could be done about the kidneys. “I was completely heartbroken. We wanted to have this baby so badly. We had to make a decision.

We would be watching our child die in front of us,” said Dave. “There were no percentages. There was no hope. I was angry at the time.

My neighbour’s pup came down with Parvo. What is that?

Canine Parvovirus Infection (Parvo) is a horrible, often deadly, disease affecting mainly the small intestine of domestic and wild dogs. Although vaccination can prevent Parvo almost completely, we still see many cases in our clinic. Parvo is picked up through ingestion of feces or vomit from, or direct contact with, an infected dog. Symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea (often with blood), anorexia and lethargy appear after about 4-10 days. Most untreated dogs, particularly puppies, will die from dehydration, electrolyte loss and/or sepsis. Early, aggressive treatment with intravenous fluids, electrolytes, antibiotics, antiemetics and occasionally pain medication may save most lives. Dogs may shed Parvo in their feces for up to 3 weeks and the virus can persist in the environment for 2-3 months. Whatever your reasons for not vaccinating your dog may be, once you’ve seen a pup suffer from full-blown Parvo, you will change your mind. Currently there is no evidence that Canine Parvo can be transmitted to humans or cats. — Dr. Herbert Mehl

Taking ‘A Walk to Remember’ continued from page B2 him in a little hat and blanket and they took pictures of us with our son and took his foot prints. I was numb. A minister did a blessing and said a prayer for us. I wore the baby’s wrist band on my thumb after. We had a name picked out but we didn’t name him,” said Amanda. “Dave was there for me the whole time. He told me we would go home and get married and have another baby.” While Dave looked ahead, he had to deal with the pain as well. “It made our relationship stronger. I think a lot of people don’t understand why we made the decision we did and maybe even blame us somehow. But this baby was wanted so much and we did it out of love. We could not see him die at birth,” he said. They are grateful for the support of their families but find that friends often don’t know what to say to them. “Even the smallest gesture is important, to call and ask how we were or send flowers or a note, they don’t realize how much it means. The best thing people can do is just be there,” said Amanda. Dave added, “It seems like people just

want you to forget about it but we have to remember even as we are moving forward. We will always remember him and his birthday, July 19, 2007.” The couple was surprised when they became pregnant again in November 2007. Amanda was told she had a miscarriage in December but in early January

“It seems like people just want you to forget about it but we have to remember even as we are moving forward.” — Dave Cabral 2008, she was seven-weeks pregnant, with no possibility that she could have become pregnant in the meantime. This has never been explained but they think that she was carrying twins — Dave is a twin and there are twins in the family — and lost one. “Once you lose a baby, you can never enjoy the next pregnancy,” said Amanda. Dave was constantly attentive and the

pregnancy proceeded normally. Their daughter, Gabby, now two, was born after an hour-and-a-half labour. “We love her but we won’t forget our son. She will know that she has a brother when she can understand,” said Dave. They both appreciate the Walk to Remember for the chance to support others who have had the same experience of loss and to educate people on how to talk to and help families with pregnancy or birth loss. Amanda attends the Pregnancy Loss Support Group. A Walk to Remember was started by Jennifer Patrick to help others after she lost her first child several years ago. It lets people who have lost a pregnancy or newborn come together to honour those lives and raise money for the Tranquility Room at the hospital, a private room for families who are grieving. A Walk to Remember takes place Oct. 2 at 1:30 p.m. (registration at 1 p.m.) at Polson Park. Everyone is welcome to attend and people may take part without talking about their experience. For more information and pledge sheets, please call Jennifer Patrick at 250938-2331 or Melody Miller at 250-5402449.

The Living with Cancer Retreat gives the chance to be in a comforting and supportive environment to start to deal with physical, emotional and spiritual issues. “It’s a really safe place to be for a few days with others experiencing a life-threatening illness, cancer or otherwise. It is a place to have some professional help in dealing with issues,” said Andrea Hoye of the Mara Station Retreat Society. The retreats, facilitated by Dr. Kay Costley-White, a palliative care physician, and palliative care nurses, focuses on relaxation and renewal of the mind, body and spirit. It is complementary to hospice care with people taking part while they can still care for themselves or have a caregiver come with them. “People can come at any stage in an illness. Some come earlier to deal with issues and enable themselves to have a better quality of life even though it will be shorter than was anticipated. Others come later in their illness,” said Hoye. The peaceful setting of Mara Station on the Shuswap River lets participants enjoy nature while taking part in complementary therapies like Qi Gong, healing touch, massage, and meditation, as well as group sessions with the facilitators. People take part only in the activities they want and share as much or as little as they want. “We want people to feel pampered and nourished in every way. A friend who took part told me that it made her realize how much she needed to be doing for herself and gave her the permission to do that,” said Hoye. “I saw the change in how she worked through her issues and fears. She was able to get on with living and have better quality life

s ’ a n n A min

because she had dealt with the emotions that lurk back there. We want people to know that this is a place where they can come for support. This is one more choice they have.” The Mara Station Retreat Society is a non-profit group with directors from the North and Central Okanagan who have fundraisers to cover administration costs and provide help for people who want to attend a retreat. People can refer themselves to the retreat or may be referred by a health-care professional. Most people who attend retreats are dealing with cancer but the program is also suitable for people who have other life-threatening illnesses. The retreat is open to people and their spouses or support persons. There are also grief and bereavement retreats each spring and fall. The Living with Cancer Retreat, sponsored by the Mara Station Retreat Society, takes place from Oct. 1 to 5 at Mara Station on the Shuswap River. There is a cost to cover the private accommodation and food but financial help is available. For more information and registration contact Hoye at 250307-7850, e-mail retreat@marastation.com or see www.marastationretreat.com.

Takin’ a break from crazy Andrew Allen returns home for charity show and to talk to local youth about where he’s been KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

With the number of touring acts coming through Vernon the next month, it’s a local that seems to be the hottest ticket in town. Andrew Allen is coming home to play a close-to sold-out show at the Performing Arts Centre Oct. 8, along with recording artist Carly Rae Jepsen, for Kiss FM’s Santa Toy Club. But that’s not all. The following weekend, Allen will be giving a workshop to youth as part of the Our Kids Have Talent competition, sponsored by the Rarearth Music Festival. “I will be talking about my journey and that it doesn’t matter where you come from, as long as you have the drive and ambition,� he said. “There are not a lot of jobs that can be hobbies, but that’s the nice thing about arts and music, and I am excited to share that with the kids.� Allen has been inebriated as of late –– from music –– working with Juno nominated producer Ryan Stewart at his Wine Cellar recording studio. He is laying down three new tracks for what will be his second full-length CD, following on the success of his 2009 five-song EP and 2008’s self-produced album, The Living Room Sessions. Stewart produced Allen’s subsequent singles, I Wanna Be (Your Christmas) and Loving You Tonight, both of which hit the top 10 on the Canadian music charts. “I’ll be back there in November and December, and should have the album ready in the new year,� said Allen. Stewart has also worked with Jepsen, cowriting and producing her top 10 single, Tug of War, which was nominated for a 2010 Juno award for Songwriter of the Year. He also worked on the song, Bucket, which hit gold status in Canada and was a top 10 hit for Jepsen. It was Allen who suggested that Jepsen, a

It wasn’t that long ago that Allen, now 29, was on stage in the Polson Park bandshell with his former band Martin competing in a local talent search sponsored by Kiss FM. They won. And since then, Allen has gone on to win a whole lot more fans. Named Chum FM’s emerging artist in July, he has scored radio hits, has toured this country –– in a van he was able to purchase after winning Tim Horton’s Every Cup Has a Story contest –– and earned a worldwide audience when he played his song Amazing at the closing ceremonies of the Paralympic Winter Games earlier this year. With showcases in New York, and a number of tours to the U.K., including one that he memorably sang about when the Iceland volcano halted his plane, Allen remains on a roll. His latest coup won him an opening slot opening for brother act Hanson this weekend at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom. “I entered that one as a joke,� said Allen, referring to the contest to open for the Shout it Out with Hanson tour. “John and Julia are fans and they urged me to enter.� Allen will share all these experiences with youth, ages eight to 18 years old, when he presents his multi-media workshop Oct. 16. “People feel artists are out of reach. I’m often asked, now that I’ve made it, will I still be accessible. And I usually say back, ‘I’ve made it?’ I honestly believe that people who have success know why they are successful, and have had to work hard,� he said. “Ninety per cent of people think about how they can get rich and successful. Only 10 per cent realize that it can take 10 years to make it, if at all. I’m excited to shed some light on that.� The Oct. 8 concert featuring Allen and Jepsen at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the Ticket Seller (549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca) with proceeds going help local children. The Oct. 16 workshop with Allen takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Okanagan College Kalamalka campus lecture theatre. Other workshops will be presented that week.

Friedman studied guitar and composition at the same distinguished conservatory as his father. While based in Germany, he toured extensively as a solo artist and as a member of several groups, becoming a respected member of the international music community in Europe. Upon returning to Vancouver, Friedman branched out into writing music scores for television and film, and giving guitar and song writing instruction and workshops. He was also music director for

the CBC’s Front Page Challenge during its last three years, writing more than 120 compositions for this beloved television program. Friedman has recorded several acclaimed solo albums including I Never Knew What Hit Me Until Now (1995), Angst Ridden Writer (1998), and Diamond Space (2006). He is presently completing his fourth CD tentatively titled Random Acts of Tuning. In 2003, Friedman began a unique collaboration with German cellist Jens Naumikat, taking his original songs to

the symphonic stage. To date, Friedman has performed his works with the Neubrandenburg Philharmonic Orchestra, the Mitteldeutsche Kammerphilharmonie, the Loh Orchestra, and the Vogtland Philharmonic Orchestra. He returns to Germany this fall, with performances in Berlin, Stuttgart and Essen, among others. “A terrific singer and accomplished musician,” according to The Vancouver Province, Friedman’s performance promises an evening of extraordinary power and emotion. Don’t miss this exceptional musical event. Doors for the Okanagan Centre for Spiritual Living, 2913 29th Ave., open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students available at the Bean Scene and the door.

Fresh from his recent German tour, West Coast singer-songwriter Michael Friedman returns to Vernon for an evening of explosive musicality and intense intimacy Friday at the Okanagan Centre for Spiritual Living. Earlier this year, Vernon fans were awed by Friedman’s passionate and powerful threeoctave voice, stunning “new acoustic” guitar playing, and complex exploration of musical genres. Friedman’s expressive playing and stirring vocals moved the audience to both enthusiastic applause and joyful song as they joined him on the compelling tune River Swim Mountain Climb. Friedman’s original compositions and impressive performances garner rave reviews whenever he plays. The Georgia Straight praised his “sharp compositional sensibility” and “a down-to-earth knack for writing insightful songs about personal relationships, both within the framework of romance and in a greater societal context.” More simply, Freiberg’s Freie Presse called him “breathtaking.” Touring to enthusiastic audiences in Europe and North America for many years now, Friedman has shared the stage with an impressive list of artists including the legendary Pete Seeger, Don Ross, Spirit of the West, Stephen Fearing, Perth County Conspiracy, Valdy, and many others. The Vancouver-born singer/songwriter/guitarist was raised in a family of musicians and artists, exposing him to a wealth of music including folk, world, rock, and classical. He began studying piano at age four. When he was 11, the family moved to Berlin, Germany where his father studied choral conducting at the Hanns Eisler Conservatory of Music. It was in Berlin Friedman began his lifelong love and “obses-

Are you ready for another reason to stop smoking? The chemicals from the inhaled smoke damage the lining of the blood vessels resulting in a slowing of blood flow. When the blood vessels to the heart are constricted, heart attacks can occur. When blood flow to the male penis is impeded, impotence can occur. This could be a good motivator for some men to kick the smoking habit. Speaking of smoking, it is interesting that the contents of cigarettes differ depending on the country in which they are made. Certain chemicals like tobacco-specific nitrosamines are lower in Canada and Australia than in the U.S. These chemicals are lined with cancer. Still not a good reason to keep smoking! We’ve mentioned before about dug manufacturers researching the “poly-pill”, a pill that contains 3-6 separate drugs all in one tablet. Once such product, called the “Red Heart pill” is in its 3rd stage international trial. It contains 4 drugs: Low does ASA, a cholesterol-lowering drug, a blood pressure drug and diuretic. It’s getting easier for diabetics to manage their disease. There are new blood glucose monitors on the market that allow storage of up to 200 glucose readings. You can also plug the machine into your computer and with accompanying software, you can keep better track of the progress of your disease. Talk to our pharmacy staff for more information. Our pharmacists and clinical staff are knowledgeable about diabetes and how to manage it accurately and efficiently. We’d be glad to show you how.

From Swaziland to Armstrong Morning Star Staff

Globetrotting, Manitoba-born, Swaziland-raised and Montreal-based Mark Berube is bringing his latest tour to the Armstrong Inn Wednesday. Along with his band, the Patriotic Few, Berube performs folk music that is compassionate and strong, braiding together the personal and the political with a poignancy few songwriters are able to achieve. With the release of his new EP in the wake of his last two fulllength albums, What the River Gave the Boat (2007) and What the Boat Gave the River (2008), Berube has been touring relentlessly across North America and Europe, establishing himself as an international artist on the rise. Nominated for Best Solo Roots Album at the Western Canada Music Awards in 2008, he has played prestigious venues such as Paris’ Olympia in 2009, being dubbed the “act to discover� at Paleo, one of Western Europe’s largest festivals, in addition to being named the “sleeper hit� at the 2009 Winnipeg Folk Festival. He also played to a crowd of nearly 10,000 as the opening act for The Cranberries in Geneva, Switzerland. The title song on Berube’s Tailored to Fit EP is a preview of his upcoming LP, June in Siberia. The foursong album also features a tango rhythm treatment of Leonard

Ridge swings up prestigious award Morning Star Staff

SCOREGolf magazine has named The Ridge course at Predator Ridge Golf Resort as the best new course in Canada for this year. The 7,190-yard, par-72 Ridge course features elevation changes, mountain vistas, rock outcroppings and views of Okanagan Lake. “Receiving SCOREGolf ’s prestigious best new course award is an honour for Predator Ridge and confirms our reputation as one of the premier golf destinations in Canada,” said Rod Cochrane, general manager at Predator Ridge Resort. “This accolade truly Rod Cochrane reflects all the care and hard work that was put into The Ridge course from start to finish by Carrick Design, NMP Golf Construction, our team at Predator Ridge and everyone involved in the project.” Architect Doug Carrick was selected to design the project in 2007 after he garnered the top three spots on SCOREGolf ’s best new course in Canada rankings for that year. The 18-hole course is defined by whitesand bunkers and tree-lined fairways. Construction of the $10 million course was completed in September 2009, allowing time for the greenery to grow in before its opening in June 2010. SCOREGolf magazine is the largest circulation golf publication in Canada and it releases the best new course ranking biennially.

The Ridge, at Predator Ridge, has been named the best new golf course in Canada. The 7,190-yard, par-72 course has white-sand bunkers, treelined fairways and a view of Okanagan Lake. Courses eligible this year opened during the 2009 season or at the very beginning of the 2010 season.

The judging panel is made up of media members, professional players, public golfers and other golf industry members.

Courses were rated based on beauty, strategy, challenge, strength and variation of holes, conditioning and fun factor.

New name for local stores Morning Star Staff

After 33 years in the furniture business, the owners of the Ashley Furniture HomeStores in the Okanagan have “cracked the case” on what they believe will be the momentum in their stores for years to come. Ashley Furniture HomeStores in Enderby and Kelowna are closing their doors for two days and reopening Friday as Case Furniture Gallery. “Moving into the future, we felt it was going to be important to our customers that we carry unique local and Canadian products,” said owner Marion Case. “We are excited and proud to be expanding our lines and offering customers more selection.”

The stores will also be adding appliances to their selection. Dennis and Marion Case opened the original Case Furniture store in Enderby in 1977 and 20 years later, converted that store to an Ashley HomeStore. The couple added an Ashley HomeStore in Kelowna in 2004, and in 2009, they opened Case Furniture Gallery in downtown Vernon. The change in name stems from several years of research and rapport with loyal customers. “Time and again after talking with our customer PHOTO SUBMITTED base, it became so obvious that it was the right thing Ashley Furniture HomeStores in Enderby will become Case Furniture Gallery to do,” said Marion Case of the new name.

YOU AND THE LAW BENEFITS OF COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE By Janice Mucalov, LL.B. It begins with you and your soon-to-beformer spouse agreeing that you won’t go to court. Instead, you sit down with your lawyers, and the four of you work together to reach mutually acceptable solutions covering spousal support, the division of property, parenting arrangements and the like. This is collaborative divorce. Why would you use collaborative divorce? Many reasons. For one thing, it’s considerably less expensive than pursuing a divorce the traditional way in court. Legal fees for a collaborative divorce usually average 10 to 20% of the typical cost of going to trial. A big savings results from sharing financial information with your spouse in a timely manner, without having to go through the more costly process of questioning under oath. A collaborative divorce is also much quicker. Often you can reach an agreement within three to six meetings. In a traditional divorce, it can take two years or more to get to a trial.

driver’s seat. It gives you control over the outcome. You have a strong voice in the proceedings and can be assured that your concerns are heard. The two of you make all the decisions, instead of a judge, and the resolution of your issues lies in your hands. As well, you’re both more likely to stick to an agreement that you come up with than a decision arbitrarily made by a judge. Separating is never easy. But because you’re taking a cooperative rather than an adversarial approach, there’s likely to be less bitterness involved and your divorce will be less stressful. With the help of your lawyers, who are trained in collaborative problem solving methods, you both learn to work with each other in the spirit of cooperation. This is especially useful if you have children, as you’re going to continue to be co-parenting after the divorce – and the tone you set here will carry over. Collaborative divorce helps to preserve a respectful relationship between the two of you.

Thomas D.A. Fletcher Q.C.

A collaborative divorce is private too – you don’t discuss your private lives in open court and end up with a written judgment that is a permanent public record, available online for the world to see. Perhaps of greater significance is that you can craft a customized agreement, using problem-solving techniques, tailored to meet the needs of your family. No two families are the same – the issues raised in your divorce proceedings deserve a more unique solution than one a judge can impose. For example, it might be important to you that your soon-tobe-ex, who attends your church, not join the choir in which you sing. A collaborative divorce also puts you in the

Finally, a collaborative approach to ending your marriage is better for any children. The sad result of battling each other in the courtroom is that children often feel the conflict. Research shows that it’s not the divorce itself that hurts children, rather it’s the fighting and distress involved. In a collaborative divorce, every effort is made to foster as good a relationship as possible between the parents to help prevent the children from experiencing the negative fall-out. Collaborative divorce lawyers also work with experienced divorce coaches and psychologists who can provide extra help if needed. Collaborative divorce addresses a bigger picture than just the legal issues. It helps protect emotional feelings too. For most couples, it’s a healthier and smarter way to exit their relationship and forge new lives than going to court.

CHRIS MCBEATH Special To The Morning Star

TURKS AND CAICOS - When I think of the Turks and Caicos archipelago, captivating images of coral reefs, dazzling white sands, aquamarine waters and cerulean blue skies seduce my thoughts. Naturally, my imagination has photo shopped them to a perfection that reflects reality. Or does it? In truth, donkeys, horses and cattle still have right of way on many of the region’s islands, cays and spits. The tempo is soft and easy, though in Providenciales, aka “Provo,” times – they are a-changing. Construction cranes kick up the dust of new infrastructure, building shells line the waterfront with an eye on tourism, and newly minted lots beg for development. Yet through it all, one mistress remains unruffled. She is the Caribbean Queen, sovereign of all conches, and a curly-cued mollusk that almost defines the lifestyle here. Conches might be an endangered and threatened species in other parts of the world but on Provo, they are a cultural icon, viewed with the same kind of stature that traditional fish ‘n chips once enjoyed in England. At first blush, I thought touring a conch farm might hold greater interest for a naturalist or an epicurean, but when I learned it was the only place in the world where you can witness the life cycle of a conch, my curiosity piqued. I am now a walking wiki-companion of molluskular detail. Every year, a conch lays nine masses of 500,000 eggs (that’s a whopping 4.5 million eggs a year) from which, in the wild, only one per cent is likely to survive to

Snails ready to entertain Continued from previous page Since conchs can easily double that size during their 20 year life span, you can start to guess the age of some of the discarded shells along the shore. Old age, however, makes their meat too tough and chewy to be considered good eating. The farm harvests 4.5 million of their young conchs each year, and releases 500,000 to the wild as part of a sustainability program for the species. A highlight of the tour is a performance by the farm’s two featured entertainers, Sally and Jerry. Each is more than seven years old. They are the oldest conchs in residence and if asked nicely, will emerge from their shells for petting and some terrific photo opportunities. Kids will love them. And if you want a shell to take home, there are piles to sort through, although beach combing for these treasures is way more fun. Eating conch, howev-

er, is what these islands are all about whether as fast-food options at roadside eateries or in resort restaurants that insist on styling the food au couture. For my money, it simply doesn’t get any better than Da Conch Shack - a local favourite that’s worth the drive if words like ‘indigenous’ and ‘authentic’ are in your vacation vocabulary. Set on the sandy shore of Blue Hills Beach, meals are served at picnic tables beneath the shade of grass-woven umbrellas with the ocean a mere footstep away. The shack itself is more like a concrete bunker and although dining inside can be welcome respite from the heat, as well as sudden gusts of wind, it comes with a battalion of flies that seem to hover, though never land, in and around the kitchen. If this thought leaves you queasy, stay outside and adopt an ostrich attitude because eating here redefines the meaning of fresh. Select any one of the conch dishes, such as the island’s best fritters,

and the staff will retrieve your meal directly out of the ocean, and then crack, cut and prepare it to order. The just-caught grouper, snapper, and lobster

are equally mouthwatering. I only hope that new tourism regulations don’t sanitize this place out of existence because when all is said and done, it is quintessential

Provo, and epitomizes the Caribbean’s conch culture. Chris McBeath is with Travel Writers’ Tales, an independent travel article syndicate.

Final enrolment this year shows 102 more students than the district predicted have registered in the local school system, meaning there are

only 40 fewer students in the 2010-11 school year than were enrolled in the 2009-10 year. “Quite frankly, we’re a district that’s largely holding our own,” said Gloster. In fact, with all-day kindergarten registrations pushing the full-time equivalent student numbers higher, next year the school district should exceed the 22,000 students they traditionally average. This year there are 21,777 students in the district, which includes Lake Country.

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. 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. 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. • 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. • Signs will be posted in most areas when flushing is in progress. Please drive carefully where operation crews are working. Greater Vernon Water is taking additional measures to reduce risk and a notification will be updated as flushing program progresses. If you have any questions, please contact Greater Vernon Water at 250-550-3700. Contact: Renee Clark, Water Quality Manger Greater Vernon Water, RDNO E-mail: info@rdno.ca • Website: www.rdno.ca

BACK TO SCHOOL BBQ AT MISSION HILL ELEMENTARY

Meeting Times Silver Star: Tues., 6:45 am/Vernon Golf Club Armstrong Rotary: Tuesdays evenings Vernon Rotary: Wed, 12:10/ Vernon Lodge Kal Rotary: Thursdays, 12:10/ Vernon Lodge New Members Welcome

THE FOUR WAY TEST: “BUSINESS ETHICS” Of all the things we think, say or do. Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?”

Rotary Member Club: Kalamalka Rotary Employer: Investors Group Occupation: Investment & Insurance Advisor Family: Wife Naomi, daughters Jacqueline & Stephanie

Back by popular demand, Silver Star Rotary hosted the Back to School BBQ at Mission Hill Elementary on Thursday September 16. Most of the 330 students, their families and the school’s 44 staff came out as over 500 meals were served. While in the queue, students and their families were asked by the respective home room teachers to update their contact information for the new school year, making efficient use of the wait time. The school, located on 36th Street, has an amazing view of the valley and services several families new to Canada. Everyone seemed to appreciate the free food and the spirit of community. Yours truly was assigned hamburger detail and was surprised to see the burgeoning popularity of veggie burgers; some choose the veggie burger for religious reasons, while others seem to select it for health reasons. Whatever the motivation, livestock operators take note!

RILEY STROTHER On September 14 Silver Star Rotary heard from Riley Strother, an outbound Rotary student who spent last year in Ghent, the capital of East Flanders and the third largest city in Belgium. While in Belgium Riley was hosted by 3 different families. Riley explained that there are 3 major languages in Belgium, French, Flemish and Dutch and he did his best to communicate in all three, but was fluent enough in French and Flemish to do bilingual presentations to local Rotary clubs. During his exchange he was taken by his host families to many different places in Europe. He attended many football (soccer) games, visited a WW I cemetery and was moved by the Vimy Ridge memorial. Riley happened to catch a “Thank you to Canada” celebration in one of the cities that Canadian soldiers liberated in WW II and that experience made him feel extra patriotic. Riley also enjoyed the local food and drink of Belgium. As the legal drinking age in Belgium is 16 it is common for young people to partake. Riley told us about the many different varieties of beer, french fries with mayonnaise, chocolate and waffles. His exchange year was memorable and he thanked the Silver Star Rotary club for sponsoring him.

urrently there are more than 1,600 homes listed in the North Okanagan, not counting mobile homes. Based on Multiple Listing Service statistics, the total number of single family properties for sale in the Vernon/ Coldstream areas is currently about 658. The number of strata dwellings (apartments and townhomes) in Vernon/ Coldstream is close to 275. So, how does a prospective buyer sort through this mass of data and detail? Step One is to call your realtor. If you don’t already have a mortgage broker, your realtor can make recommendations of some of the best ones to you. Before you start your search you need to know your financial potential. There is no point in screening homes you cannot afford. Alternately, you may be pleasantly surprised to find that you can afford a higher priced home than you ever thought possible. You also need to consult your realtor about the value of your present home on this current, very competitive marketplace. Once you know what your equity is, and what the amount of the mortgage you can afford is,

you’ll have a definite price range to target. Most people these days do preliminary research using the internet. Doing that most certainly gives you a basic idea of what is on the market for what price. But, what Jane Field you may not know is what homes have actually been selling for versus what the asking prices are. A good idea is to ask your realtor to e-mail or print you some recent sales in your preferred price range and location. You will then have a clear picture of current values. Most realtors are happy to provide this service for you without charge, if they are assured you will eventually be buying through them. Searching the Internet for listings is less tedious if you have a professional realtor do the preliminary work for you. The search functions we are able to use can narrow a list of hundreds of properties down to 10 or 20, making the task much more manageable. Realtors can also stay on top of the newest listings for you. They can also inform you right away if a price reduction occurs, giving you an opportunity to buy a home that you previously felt you

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You are often better off being unencumbered with partners, and now may be one of those times. Even if you may think you need a helpmeet, go it alone if at all possible. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If you’re not tuned into the plight of a friend who is asking a favor of you, you’re apt to turn down his/her request. Before automatically doing so, you must collect more information. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Should you hear some juicy, succulent gossip about a friend, be cognizant of what you’re doing before spreading it around any further. How would you feel if you were in this person’s flipflops? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Attempting to use flattery in order to screen your real purpose is likely to backfire on you, especially if your interlocutor knows you well. Your insincerity will be readily discerned. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Be careful if you get involved in a deep conversation with a sensitive friend, because sensitive topics and/ or issues could come into the exchange and feelings could easily be hurt. ARIES (March 21-April 19) This might not be one of your better days to go shopping, because you could find the latest fads simply irresistible. Be more discerning when it comes to what you buy. TAURUS ( April 20-May 20) Your lack of commitment to friends’ plans is likely to make your companions go off and do their own thing. No one is going to sit around

waiting for you to make up your mind. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Unless you don’t mind getting into trouble, take care of your responsibilities first before scampering off with your pals. Besides, knowing your obligations are out of the way allows you to relax and have fun. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Don’t let it turn your head if someone you know is extremely complimentary. This person could be merely trying to get you to do a favor for him/her that you might find onerous or distasteful. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Some days it seems like everything that we do falls flat. If this should turn out to be one of those times for you, don’t start pointing a finger at everybody else. Chalk it up to chance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Watch yourself when at a social gathering should religion or politics become part of the discussion. Unfortunately, either one usually produces sparks, making everyone feel ill at ease.

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.

LIBERTY HOUSE WATCH We Take Care When You’re Not There! Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder ohn Buchan, a Scottish author who died in 1940, said, “The charm of fishing is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.” The right line of play in today’s deal is elusive. You are in four spades. West leads the club queen. What would you do to land the contract? Over West’s takeout double, responder’s jump to two no-trump shows at least four-card spade support and 10-plus support points. (A jump to three spades would be preemptive, indicating a weak hand with four trumps.) When you are in a suit contract, start by counting losers. Here, there are four: one in each suit.

Then count your winners. You should see nine: four spades, one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. But instead of conceding down one, look for a way to avoid one loser that also generates a 10th trick. If you play a trump at trick two, you should fail, West taking the trick and leading a second club. Then, when he gets in with his diamond ace, he cashes a club. Instead, win the first trick with dummy’s club king and play a diamond. Take the second club in your hand and cash your two diamond winners, discarding dummy’s last club. Then it is time to play a trump, but later you will trump your third club in the dummy, the ruff in

the shorter-trump hand giving you an extra spade trick. Finally, note that if you take the first trick in your hand, you will fail if West ducks the first diamond and takes the second. When he leads another club, you will be locked in the dummy. Watch your entries.

~ Farewell ~The golfing in the sun,

In this hour I will soar on angel’s wings, As I rise above. And depart all these worldly things. My life has been full. For we had lots of fun, And my thanks and my love, Goes out to everyone. Remember our times, Of laughter and cheer, The fun, the antics, And the games of golf I loved so dear. The times seem so short, And yet oh, the things I have done. The pots I have stirred,

The places I have seen, And the jobs I have done. Yet, the jokes I have shared, With my friends in between, Will always remain, One of my most favorite things. And now, the time has come, I have to move on. For there is a place up there, That is far too calm. And so, with my best antics prepared, I shall head along that way. But I’ll be waiting for you all, And once again we shall play.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the PLEASANT VALLEY FUNERAL HOME. (250) 542-4333 Condolences may be offered at www.pleasantvalleyfh.com
