Kal Lake claims drowning victim ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the drowning death of an Eastern Canada resident in Kal Lake Wednesday night. Vernon RCMP report a 44-year-old man, believed to be from Newfoundland who was in the North Okanagan to pick fruit, went for a swim off the dock at Kal Beach shortly before 10 p.m. “There are indications he was there with another person, jumped into the lake, swam for a minute or two, then went under,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “We believe alcohol played a factor in this incident.” Vernon Search and Rescue were called to the scene, and the man’s body was found after an hourlong search in about six-toeight feet of water. No names have been released pending notification of the man’s next-ofkin. The police and coroner’s

ing in Kal Lake this year. A Kelowna resident drowned at the south end of the lake

in August after jumping off of a boat. A Korean student sur-

vived a near-fatal drowning in July after going for a swim after playing beach

volleyball at Kal Beach with some fellow international students.

Policing cost concerns delivered at UBCM ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Mike de Jong has been given an earful on the issues several cities, including Vernon, face with costs involving integrated RCMP detachments. B.C.’s solicitor-general met with the Vernon delegation earlier this week at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention at Whistler. “It went well,” said Vernon Mayor Wayne Lippert of the meeting with de Jong. “We asked him to re-look at costs, particularly for those communities with integrated detachments like ours.” Lippert presented a report to the solicitorgeneral, believing Vernon is unfairly cover-

ing policing costs for the rest of the North Okanagan region. The report states the city currently pays virtually all support costs for 38.5 employees of the Vernon-North Okanagan detachment. The city funds 33.5 full-time equivalent employees, Coldstream covers two and three are funded provincially. Costs and employee increases due to a new records management system and other service level increases have also largely been covered by Vernon. The local detachment has been integrated since 2004. “What’s key to note is the contract for policing is done directly between the provincial and federal government. It has nothing

to do with the RCMP or municipalities,” said Lippert. “When the costs are put back to the municipalities, they’re all sub-contractors of the province, not the federal government. The municipalities need to talk to the province.” The solicitor-general seemed to take Vernon’s words and report to heart. “He was making notes on that so that he could study it,” said Lippert. “Most of the detachments and sub-contracts the province has with municipalities and regional districts are not of the integrated type. They’re full, where everyone is paying the same and boundaries are defined and everybody’s in the same circumstance in those boundaries. “In the North Okanagan, we have a large urban area that can go directly into a large

rural area and they can’t use resources outside the City of Vernon in the rural area.” Lippert met with about 30 other mayors, including communities with integrated detachments, to discuss issues such as policing costs. “One thing nobody’s happy with is a 20-year-contract offered by the federal government and they won’t budge on it,” said Lippert. “There are clauses, however, to review the contract every five years.” The current RCMP contract expires in 2012. Lippert and Couns. Jack Gilroy and Shawn Lee spent the week meeting with close to 10 provincial cabinet ministers talking about a number of subjects at UBCM.

City tees up clubhouse for recreation ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Part of the old Lakers Golf Course in Okanagan Landing is staying with the City of Vernon. Council unanimously passed a motion to retain the city-owned building and parking lot of the former golf course, located at 7000 Cummins Road. Costs to renovate the facility will be included in the 2011 city budget. The goal would appear to have Vernon recreational services use the facility, as council has asked rec services for a plan for the use of

Jack Gilroy, left the regular meeting of Vernon council on Monday early to head to Whistler for the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. “The building will remain a community facility, it will have parks programming in it and it will be a nice complement to the waterfront plan.� Under the proposed waterfront neighbour-

Nicol believes having a recreational services office on the site would benefit the Landing. “It will help the area of Okanagan Landing School with programs close to that area,� he said. “It will help out the school and it will make families want to go to that area, not just people getting a second home or retiring in the area. “We need to get some services out to some of these areas that pay parks services, and that’s one small way to do it.� Renovation costs for the clubhouse are estimated

Norm Crerar, holding one of the original paddles from the 1967 Centennial Voyageur Canoe Pageant race, is being inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in November, along with his paddling mates.

But with Crerar, the captain, and longtime paddling partner McEachern stationed at the back and front of the boat respectively, the crew trailed only once, at the end of the first day in Alberta. After that, they were making other boats eat their wake. “When you’re out in front and everyone is chasing you, they start thinking, ‘Maybe we should go for second place,’” said Crerar. “That’s where you want to be.” There were challenges from Mother Nature though. Like when they were going through Fort William (now Thunder Bay) and all the iron ore in the ground caused compasses to malfunction. In the years leading up to 1967, Crerar and McEachern would take weekend trips through the lakes and rivers of northern Manitoba where it would still be

light out at 11 p.m. They got to know the men who would become their teammates by racing against them in events across the country. “The reason Gib and myself were the best canoe team in North America is because we would race all summer,” said Crerar. “We would do about 3,500 miles a year (and) we think we’ve paddled about 55,000 miles together.” That experience and that of their Manitoba teammates made for a smooth transition when they went from being merely pairs to a team of six paddlers and four support team members who would take turns on the canoe or setting up camp. “It was the greatest adventure,” said Crerar, who regularly gets together with McEachern early in the morning to

It was 43 years ago but Norm Crerar can still remember the trip of a lifetime as if it happened last week. The 70-year-old Vernon resident and native of Flin Flon, Man. recalls with vivid clarity numerous stories from the 1967 canoe journey he and nine other men made from Rocky Mountain House, Alta. to the Montreal Expo. “We went through one storm at Two Hills (Alberta), there was dust blowing and a dust cloud about 500 to 1,000 feet high,” said the youthful former ski instructor. “It was a black cloud of topsoil and our hair was caked with dirt.” The race was one of many celebrations to mark Canada’s centennial year. Crerar and his teammates (Gib McEachern, Joe Michelle, Roger Carriere, John Norman, Wayne Soltys, David Wells, Don Starkell and Blair Harvey) won the 6,000-kilometre, 104-day race and will be inducted to the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in November. “When we paddled in the 1966 and 1967 races, doubt any of us knew there was a Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame,” said Crerar, also alluding to training competitions in advance of the centennial event. “Our goal was to win the race.” Moving a 23-foot long, 400-pound canoe is no small feat especially considering all the teams (only Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island did not enter) traversed 26 bodies of water and trudged 70 portages totalling 100 kilometres.

rehash old paddling stories over coffee. “We were all 27 to 37 years old, absolutely the best age you can imagine. “We’d already won two trial races the year before so everyone knew we were the team to beat.” At the end of each stage (there were 90 stops), the teams would eat and rest. They combined to put away 30,000 eggs, 10,000 litres of milk, 5,000 loaves of bread and almost 12 tonnes of steaks, bacon, potatoes, butter and honey. “Gib ate more food than anybody,” chuckled Crerar. Though they remained friendly with their provincial rivals during the race and would help each other get through difficult portages, competition was fierce in the canoes. “In the water, boats

Legal Briefs Q: What is Probate? A: Probate is the court-approved transfer of your assets to your executor for distribution to your beneficiaries. Difficulties may arise due to tax complications and so on, making the executor’s life difficult at the best of times. Often parents appoint their children. This can give rise to suspicions among siblings that one is getting more than another or that the executor is helping himself to the parent’s estate. Your lawyer can help you avoid these problems.

would get drawn together and you’d just whack some guy in the face (while) trying to paddle,” recalled Crerar. “There was no mercy.” There was prize money raised by each town for winners of each stage and Crerar says he and his teammates made off with about $3,500 each when the trip wrapped up in Montreal. The finish was televised live on CBC and though Manitoba had already sealed victory, it would have been embarrassing to lose the final stage which was a course laid out with buoys. Crerar and his wife of 38 years, Nancy, moved to Vernon in 1981 when Norm became one of the part owners of Silver Star Mountain Resort. Today he paddles a little but enjoys golfing and reliving the glory days with pal McEachern.

News DVA sees interim parking as Band-Aid fix ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

The Downtown Vernon Association is temporarily happy with the city’s plans to establish 28 temporary parking stalls on the site of the former Vernon Medical Clinic on 31st Avenue. The city announced Monday that work will begin by the end of October on a pedestrian walkway across the site between 31st and 32nd Avenues. Grass and irrigation will be added to the site. Temporary lane closures will prohibit through-traffic in the lane, pending discussions with impacted businesses, and a temporary parking lot will be put in. A total of 17 on-street parking spots will be lost when 31st Avenue between 30th and 31st Streets is closed to become the new transit terminus, but 33 public parking spots will be gained, with 25 of them coming on

“The DVA would like to see the further formation of a parking commission.” — Ruth Hoyte Coldstream Avenue (angle parking), where the transit terminus currently exists, and eight more on 30th Avenue. “The approval of 28 temporary parking stalls on the medical clinic lot, is a positive thing, and the DVA is pleased that council listened to this request by our membership,” said Ruth Hoyte DVA president. “But the key operative word, however, is ‘temporary.’” Hoyte said the temporary parking does not address the net loss of parking elimi-

nated on 34th Street nor the proposed elimination of parking along the planned 30th Street corridor. City staff confirmed several parking spaces were lost when 34th Street was recently upgraded, but said no plans have been finalized for elimination of parking along the 30th Street corridor. Hoyte said her organization has been working closely with the city on wellresearched parking solutions. “The DVA would like to see the formation of a parking commission to monitor and review parking issues, as well as have available a complete parking inventory and clear financial statements as they relate to parking revenue and expenditures,” said Hoyte. “Finally we kindly request the city not eliminate any further parking downtown until an overall parking strategy is adopted.”

Knowing your true friends

T

he call came early morning last week. My mother wanted to know if I had heard of an Elizabeth Baxter. I said no. “She’s asked to be my friend on Facebook,” my mother replied, sounding rather worried. “Well, you don’t have to be her friend,” I replied, thinking this is a conversation I never expected to have with the person who gave birth to me. My mother’s reply: “I Kristin Froneman don’t know if I want to stay on this Facebook. There’s too many people out there I don’t know.” After I got off the phone, my first thought was, ‘Mom’s been watching Dateline again,’ but when I mulled it over, I could understand her concern. After doing a quick search, I realized how many Elizabeth Baxters alone exist in the Facebook world -- 323 at last count. What would you do if a stranger came knocking on your door asking to be your friend? And really, do you want someone who you don’t know to be able to access your information, personal photos, witty quotes, and “deep” thoughts. Do you really want everyone to know what a narcissist you’ve become, or how sad and lonely you are because you don’t have more than 1,000 friends? The answer is yes. Just about everybody these days is on Facebook, or some kind of social networking site, me included. Let’s see, at last count I was on Facebook, MySpace, Linkedin. I’m sure I’ve lost track. I don’t think I’m on Twitter. That one seems pointless. I mean, who has the time to check all these things. Come to think of it, it’s pretty scary how much information on me is out there. My mother might be on to something. It’s not that Mom doesn’t trust people –– well, there are a few, and most politicians

and telemarketers are high on that list –– it’s just that she’s uneasy when people she doesn’t know try to sell her something. And that’s what Facebook feels like sometimes. However, in this case, no money is being exchanged, just “friendship.” It seems so superficial. But like anything that’s modern, innovative and new, there are also the upsides. I’ve connected with a lot of old friends through networking sites: all the way back to elementary, junior and senior secondary school, as well as from college and university, and from the three provinces I’ve lived in. There’s international friends I met on my travels and when I worked at a youth hostel in Toronto. There’s my family members, and my husband’s family, who are scattered around Canada, South Africa, Australia and Asia. And then there are those friends close by, who for some reason, namely life, I haven’t seen for a while. I can even spy on all my young nieces and nephews –– find out who they are seeing, what they are doing –– on second thought, best to leave that one alone. What happens in Teenland, should stay in Teenland. I just don’t “get it” anymore. And that’s just the problem. I’m older. I remember the old fashioned way of connecting with people. I met my best friend when I was four. I wandered into her backyard in our Montreal neighbourhood, and insisted she play with me. We’ve been friends ever since. And even though she’s on Facebook, I still phone her. I love hearing her voice, her laugh. And when we get together in person, we don’t have to say anything at all. Our facial expressions, body language, and that unspoken spiritual connection built over 35 years of friendship, bonds us beyond the screen. I guess my conclusion is that even though there are a lot of Elizabeth Baxters out there, you will always know who your true friends are. And you can Facebook me on that one.

Ever hear of a Pyrrhic victory? That’s what they call it when you win a battle, but the victory comes with a devastating cost. It might be going a little far to suggest that the recently announced referendum on the HST is a Pyrrhic victory for the anti-HST proponents, but it certainly comes at a cost. Even with Premier Gordon Campbell’s announcement the referendum will only require a simple majority to decide the fate of the HST and the result will be binding on the government, the cost of the Sept. 2011 referendum is estimated to be in the $30 million range. Setting the date a year from now – that’s 15 months that we’ll be paying the HST – buys the Liberals a lot of time. No doubt the Liberals are not only hoping in a year’s time, voters will be used to paying the tax, but also the righteous indignation over the half-truths, machinations and back room deals that brought the HST to B.C. will be largely forgotten. That way, anti-HST proponents will have a hard time getting even 50 per cent of the voters out to support them. And even if the Liberals follow through on the promise to scrap the HST should the referendum go against them, who’s to say it won’t be reintroduced under a new banner and more costs? Trashing the HST would mean giving the feds back the $2 billion in transition cash they’re putting up. The anti-HST lobby isn’t happy with the referendum timing either. They’re planning to get started on attempting to recall MLAs as soon as possible, which will cost taxpayers some more money still as the Liberals defend their beleaguered members. And should the campaign, by some unlikely chance, succeed in recalling an MLA or two that’s going to cost more money still. ---Black Press

How to avoid deer, hopefully

T

he "Seniors" columnist recently wrote about her collision with a deer between Nakusp and the Needles ferry. She wondered why "deer whistles" were not a legal requirement. Deer seem to become more abundant each year as do vehicle/ deer collisions. If deer whistles actually sent the critters on or alongside the roads racing back into the woods, we would be fools to not install them. Unfortunately, all independent tests (by fleets of police vehicles and trucking companies) indicate they are worthless. I'm also a motorcyclist and, believe me, we are much more concerned about avoiding deer strikes than most auto drivers. A collision usually involves not just ICBC but also the ER if not a trip to the morgue. Deer collisions are not totally preventable because they have been known to leap out of the bushes in front of or into the side of a

vehicle before even an attentive person could begin to brake. They have even run into stationary vehicles. The well-considered advice of many is 1. slow down, 2. really look, and 3. be prepared to break hard. 1. Slow down to the point where you can stop within your sight distance. Slow way down if you spot deer on the shoulder of the road. If you have ABS, this is one of the good reasons you paid those bucks. Slow down approaching

LISTENING NOW? It’s interesting that our MLA Eric Foster is now asking his constituents “to contact him” to determine the future of the HST. He further states that “I’d like to hear from people in the constituency." This comes from a man who sits in a riding that produced more signatures against the HST than votes that won him that seat. If Eric Foster really wanted to hear from his constituents and listened, he would have voted against the HST. He is on record that he would vote on what he believes is right and not what his constituents think. Why should we now believe that his position has changed and he will listen to us now? So if we want to rid ourselves of the HST then please let Mr. Foster know. He certainly isn’t a Blair Lekstrom so it probably won’t do us any good but at least we will have done our part to remind Mr. Foster of our position and see if he really wanted to hear from us. Scott Kyllo MENDING FENCES I have a beef over people figuring it is their right to cut someone's wire fence just so they can get their dirt bike or ATV to the lands on the other side. We live on the edge of Crown Lands just like a lot of other people. Above us is Crown Land that

blind curves, cresting hills, when the bush gets closer to the road, when dappling shade and sunlight make it hard to spot deer, at dawn and dusk when vision is compromised and the "wood rats" are more active, and also at night. Cancel the cruise control and slow down or speed up according to what you can see. On flat straight roads, do use your cruise control at night and set it at 80kph in deer country. You greatly increase your chances of avoiding,

Coldstream Ranch leases for the summer range for their cows. When these irresponsible people cut the fence these cows get out and consequently the residents that border these lands end up with the cows in their yards destroying all the hard work they have put into landscaping. Coldstream Ranch can only do so much to contain their animals and the fault lies on the irresponsible people who cut the fences. A fence is there for two reasons: one is to keep something in and another is to keep something out. The ranch has installed gates and there are cattle guards on roads that you can use. It would be nice if dirt bikers and ATVs would use them, that’s what fences are there for. It is very costly for the ranch and the homeowners when the cows get out. This has been going on for the past 17 years, it's time that the fence cutters became more responsible for using these lands. Linda Garbutt BENEFIT OF HST I am not an economist, nor a politician and I'm not that great at math but I know that 5+7=12 and I've been paying five per cent GST and seven per cent PST for many years on most of my purchases in B.C. From what I understand, HST means harmonized sales tax, the combining of the GST and PST into

one tax. Contractors and manufacturers and retailers, why aren't we hearing praise for the HST from you? From what I understand, when you buy new equipment, you get 12 per cent back instead of five per cent when you file your HST return. Every hammer, every nail, every pencil, every tablecloth, every supply that used to have GST and HST applied now is eligible for an input tax credit of 12 per cent instead of five per cent. Perhaps your savings, your service, could be reduced somewhat to offset the HST? Does anyone out there opposed to the HST understand the cost to the taxpayer this anti-HST campaign is going to cost us? And let me tell you, I am sure old Bill Vander Zalm is not footing the bill, but he is getting the spotlight. I know that as consumers, we will pay HST on some supplies and services that were not taxable in the past, however, I still think the benefit of the HST overrides the additional costs. Low-income earners that used to receive the GST rebate will now see that rebate increased. Perhaps the biggest fault of the government is not that they went forward with the HST but that they did not educate the public. In order to keep the economy growing, we must be competitive, we must support business and in turn business will support all of us. Hooray for HST. K. Hacking

or at least of being injured, in a collision. Also note that those "deer warning" signs only appeared after numerous collisions with deer. Take them seriously. 2. Visually search for deer. When you spot them on the side of the road, slow way down. Their behavior is totally unpredictable. They may ignore you, or they may bolt out in front of you. And there may be more just up the road. 3. Most people who have "close encounters" or worse, believe swerving is a bad tactic when it becomes apparent you are going to hit that deer. Deer can change direction very fast. And faced with bad choices, better to hit the deer than an oncoming vehicle or a tree. Use your brakes to the max. If you hit a deer at 50kph in a car, you will need some bodywork. If you hit the deer at 100kph, the damage will be four times greater. And some of that may be to you. Doug Sonju

Town centre seeks input JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

A neighbourhood plan for central Coldstream is, fittingly, looking for advice from neighbours. I t ’ s hoped residents will take part in surveys currently circuJim Garlick lating and take advantage of future public meetings to help shape central Coldstream. A draft Central Coldstream Neighbourhood Plan has been drawn up as the district wants to pursue a more sustainable future.

The chance for the public to weigh in on that plan will likely come in mid November, after survey results are in. “Right now we’re just going through a process that was lacking,” said Mayor Jim Garlick. Creating a town centre is key to a sustainable future, but that would include somewhat higher residential and commercial densities than are currently present. “At this point there’s no planned changes to residential properties,” said Trevor Seibel, Coldstream’s director of financial administration. The plan calls for several initiatives and policies, including directing two and three storey residential, commercial or

mixed use (both) buildings to the town centre. The plan also calls for the town centre to allow such operations as a general store, drug store, gas station, dental, veterinary or medical service, grocery, cafe, fitness, hair salon, artisan’s shop, agricultural and garden supply, farmer’s market, accounting, engineering and similar firms, bank or financial services, library, post office and some of the existing uses. A caption under a picture of the old Coldstream Market in the plan reads: “Commercial activity has come and gone along Kalamalka Road. Attracting new businesses and residents to the area should be a focus of the District’s efforts.”

Push made to move boats off Kal Morning Star Staff

Tired of Kalamalka Lake being flooded with boats, Coldstream politicians want to see more use made of Okanagan Lake. “They are always wanting us to increase the boat launch site when Okanagan Lake is significantly bigger,” said Coun. Gyula Kiss. Residents and politicians alike are concerned about the environmental impacts boating is having on Kalamalka Lake - a source of drinking water. Along with litter and the fuel burnt on boats, Kiss points out another pollutant from some boaters – beverages. “What goes in has to come out,” said Kiss. “I’m sure they’re not putting it back in the cans and bottles.”

Officers catch up with suspect

A boating study for Kalamalka and Okanagan Lake is underway with discussions about boat launches across Vernon. “A large focus of the recommendations coming out of this study does impact Coldstream and Kalamalka Lake,” said Coun. Maria Besso. At a recent meeting on the study, Besso says one of the points that came out is that expansions should happen on Okanagan Lake and Kekuli Bay, not at the north end of Kalamalka. Kekuli is scheduled for upgrades starting next year. B.C. Parks will be starting with a dock expansion for launching boats and will be doubling boat launch parking to a total of 60 or 70 spaces as well as expanding non-boat trailer parking.

A Kelowna man is facing five counts of theft from vehicles after being arrested by Lake Country police Wednesday. An alert Lake Country resident reported witnessing an unknown male in black trying to open door handles on vehicles in the Lakes subdivision area shortly after 1:30 a.m. The witness was able to provide a good description of the suspect, along with information that the male suspect was last seen walking down the hill from this location. Lake Country RCMP members immediately responded to the area and located several vehicles which had been left open by the suspect, and which had obviously been rifled through, in driveways at the south end of Cliffshore Drive. While on foot at the scene, officers heard and then observed the male suspect running southbound, through the front yards of Cliffshore Drive, at which point the man was stopped and arrested without incident. A search of the suspect located a variety of items stolen from several vehicles, along with a hunting knife, concealed in the man’s waistband. The suspect, 31, was returned to the Kelowna detachment, where he was processed and later released on a Promise to Appear for a future court date. Charges being recommended to Crown counsel include five counts of theft from a vehicle, possession of stolen property and possession of a concealed weapon.

Duteau water pipes flushed out JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

The clean and clear water Duteau customers have been just recently enjoying could get a little muddied over the next couple weeks. Water main flushing is taking place from Aberdeen Road east including Lavington, north and south BX, East Vernon, Old Kamloops Road, Blue Jay subdivision, Stepping Stones and Swan Lake. Customers in those areas are being asked to refrain from using water when flushing is in progress and boil water for drinking,

brushing teeth, washing fruits and vegetables and making beverages or ice. Residents in the affected areas are also advised to check water before doing any water-related housework and refrain from doing laundry, due to the potential for staining. “It does stir up a fair bit of sediment,” said Al Cotsworth, manager of Greater Vernon Water. “Maybe, do the laundry later in the evening when flushing has calmed down.” Once flushing is complete, customers may also need to run an outside tap until

the water clears. The North Okanagan Regional District - GVW, along with Vernon and Coldstream are taking this opportunity to use the new treated Duteau water for flushing – which normally occurs in the summer. “It is an annual process but we’ve delayed it to later in the year to take advantage (of the new water),” said Cotsworth. “We thought we’d get better results.” Signs will be posted in areas where flushing is in progress and motorists are asked to drive carefully where operation crews are working.

Allan Brooks granted funding fix ROGER KNOX

Vernon council has answered nature’s call. The Allan Brooks Nature Centre has requested a one-time grant of $10,000 to help with its funding issues. Council unanimously passed the request. “As long as this is only a one-time grant,” said Coun. Bob Spiers. Council received a two-page application from the nature centre society, explaining that the money would be used for educational programs in 2010, as funding previously available from community gaming grants, and federal and provincial agencies, had dried up, been curtailed or frozen for the year. “This current lack of funding has caused a dilem-

ma for the Allan Brooks Nature Centre Society,” wrote society president Ken Barton. “We have always been extremely careful not to overextend ourselves financially.” The society had been considering using funds put away for expanding the facility, located off of Commonage Road, to cover the educational program costs. Celebrating its 10th year, the Allan Brooks Nature Centre Society has been a leader in environmental education and stewardship in the North Okanagan. Society members and staff have developed off-site environmental educational programs for local residents and visitors, and has become actively involved in local and regional land use and natural resources planning processes.

Thanks to grants being kicked in, some local school fields will be rejuvenated. The North Okanagan-Shuswap School District will benefit from $30,000 in School Community Connections (SCC) grants to create dynamic community space within local schools. A.L. Fortune Secondary, Pleasant Valley Secondary School and Salmon Arm Secondary will each receive $10,000 to rejuvenate their sports field. “Sports fields are an important part of a school’s physical education program and are widely used by a variety of community teams,” said Shuswap MLA George Abbott. “Not only will updates to school fields benefit the students, but it will encourage our whole community to be healthy and active.” The SCC program continues the goal of actively encouraging boards of education and local governments to work co-operatively with community partners to expand the use of schools and to find unique and innovative ways to include community use in their facilities and create places where people have better access to educational and community services and programs.

The tracks were obstructed by a black SUV parked too close to the tracks behind Briteland, which had to be removed by Vernon Towing before the train was able to proceed.

Firefighters take to roof to raise funds JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Some local heroes are going to great heights to further protect their community. Volunteer firefighters will take to the roof of Butcher Boys this weekend as part of the Heroes in the Sky fundraiser. Other members of the BX-Swan Lake Fire Department will be stationed below, selling calendars featuring some local heroes. The event gets underway today at 4 p.m. and goes until 9 p.m. and then again on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The purchase of a $20 calendar will also get supporters a free hot dog or hamburger and have their name entered into a draw to win a helicopter ride from Kokanee Helicopters. “The woman who won it last year, she was in tears,” said fire chief

Bill Wacey of the excited senior who went on the ride with her grandchildren. Funds raised through the sale of calendars will help firefighters with training costs as well as purchasing sprinkler protection units for fires in the interface. These units can be stationed on the roofs of houses to help fight fires. “There are no sprinkler units in the North Okanagan, with the exception of North Westside,” said Wacey. “So it will be for our area (BX-Swan Lake) but it will certainly be available for any place in the (North Okanagan).” The calendar sale proceeds will also help the department sponsor the Vernon Christian School leadership program. Last year the sale of calendars helped the department purchase an AED (automated exter-

nal defibrillator). Calendars can also be purchased at Swan Lake Nurseryland, Butcher Boys or the Vernon Square Safeway. Along with BX-Swan

Lake members, the calendar features action shots of firefighters from across the country. ■ The Lumby Fire Department is holding a Boot Drive to raise funds

for the annual community Halloween fireworks show. The boot drive goes Saturday on Shuswap Avenue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

New restaurant backs big community event Morning Star Staff

East Side Mario’s is new to Vernon but the company has a long history of supporting The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. “East Side Mario’s is a national sponsor and we wanted to support the fundraising in the community,” said Melanie Punch, owner, with her husband, Mike Punch, of the restaurant which opened in June of this year. All the proceeds from the grand opening party were donated to Run for the Cure and all the staff members have been raising pledges to take part in the run/ walk. Customers have been helping by donating $5 in exchange for a $5 coupon to be used on their next visit. “I haven’t lost anyone to breast cancer but I want to do this so my daughter can grow up and hopefully breast cancer won’t be such a terrible thing when it is mentioned,” said Melanie Punch. “They have to find a cure sometime,” added Mike Punch. Team East Side Mario’s has already raised more than $5,000 for the run. People can make donations to the Team East Side Mario’s at the restaurant or online at www.cbcf.org. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure takes place at Fulton

Secondary School in Vernon Sunday starting at 10 a.m. More than 60 communities across Canada, including nine in British Columbia, will be taking part in the 19th annual Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure this year. The Run is Canada’s largest single day, volunteer-led fundraising event that raises money for breast cancer research and community education and awareness programs. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer diagnosed among Canadian women (28 per cent of all cancer cases). The risk of developing breast cancer increases with age. In 2010, approximately 23,200 women will be diagnosed with breast

Public invited to give input on library JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Before ground breaks on Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new library in November, the public is invited to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in store and give their input. CEI Architecture will host a design exercise over a three-day period from Monday to Wednesday to gather input from all stakeholders on the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirements. This process will conclude with a community consultation open to the public. Following two days of intensive consultation with specialists and program staff, the community consultation is to be held between 4 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Schubert Centre. This is a drop-in event, free to all members of the public. A draft of the concept design will be shown, and there will be opportunities for everyone to review the concept, ask questions and add their thoughts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We encourage all members of the public, whether they are library customers or not, to join in this process,â&#x20AC;? said Don Nettleton, ORLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way for people to provide input into their new library.â&#x20AC;? The new $12.65 million library is to be constructed across from the Tolko building on 30th Avenue, where there is currently a parking lot. The existing 1989built library is 13,000 square feet, while the new facility is expected to provide at least double

the space. The projected opening is 2013 or sooner.

One issue that came up at the recent ORL board meeting was

whether there was an interest in housing the Friends of the Library.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Apparently there is not,â&#x20AC;? said ORL director Maria Besso.

Area Fight-HST organizer steps down BY ALISTAIR WATERS Black Press

The man that Fight HST listed as its top Kelowna-Lake Country organizer in a bid to recall Liberal MLA Norm Letnick has quit over published comments in a Vancouver newspaper attributed to him that appear to support infamous neo-Nazi Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel. But while Al Romanchuk confirmed yesterday he quit to avoid â&#x20AC;&#x153;taintingâ&#x20AC;? the campaign in any way, he claimed he never made the statements attributed to him. He also denied being friends with Zundel and said he has never met the man. â&#x20AC;&#x153;AlI know about him is what I have read in the media,â&#x20AC;? said the 74-year-old retired Albertan lawyer who arrived in the Okanagan five months ago. In last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edition of The Vancouver Sun, Romanchuk is quoted as saying his â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendâ&#x20AC;? Zundel was â&#x20AC;&#x153;crucifiedâ&#x20AC;? for speaking his mind. The quote also had Romanchuk questioning what sort of democracy Canadians live in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My friend Ernst â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the bastards crucified him,â&#x20AC;?Romanchuk is reported to have told The Sun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guy canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak his mind

What kind of country is this that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak your mind?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Al Romanchuk in a democracy. What kind of country is this that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak your mind?â&#x20AC;? The Sun story went on to say that when asked if he thought Zundel crossed the line, Romanchuk responded: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course not.â&#x20AC;? But Romanchuk claims the first quote was made up and he does not remember being asked, or responding to, the question of whether Zundel crossed any line with his Holocaust denial statements. Zundel was extradited from Canada in 2005 and served five years in a German jail after being convicted on 14 counts of inciting hatred. For many years prior to his conviction in Germany, while living in Toronto, Zundel participated in anti-Semitic activities and contributed to a website devoted to denying the Holocaust. In Germany, public Holocaust denial is a crime. Despite Romanchukâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim

that the comments attributed to him in the story were made up, he said he has no plans to sue the newspaper or to even to contact it about the story. After the comments appeared he was contacted by Fight HST officials who asked him to step down as a recall proponent. He said he agreed because he did not want to taint the recall campaign or hurt Fight HST leaders Bill Vander Zalm and Chris Delaney. Prior to being interviewed by The Capital News on Tuesday, Romanchuk asked if the interview was being recorded, indicating he would not proceed if it was. When told hand-written notes were being taken and he was on the record, at first he said he would not proceed but then, when asked for his side of the story, accused The Sun of printing lies about him. He accused the reporter, who he described as half his age, of

â&#x20AC;&#x153;trappingâ&#x20AC;? him as he tried to quote French writer Voltaire, who famously said that while he may disagree with what a person is saying, he would defend to the death the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to say it. Last week, when The Capital News first contacted Romanchuk following Fight HSTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement he would lead the recall effort in Kelowna-Lake Country, Romanchuk described himself as someone who disagrees with the Harmonized Sales Tax, the Goods and Services Tax and any provincial sales taxes. He said he felt Canadians are being â&#x20AC;&#x153;taxed to deathâ&#x20AC;? by all levels of government and it has to stop. He said he arrived here just five months ago and because of the residency requirement could not participate in collecting signatures for Fight HSTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initiative petition drive that pushed the provincial government to hold a referendum on the HST. That vote, which Premier Gordon Campbell has said will be binding, is scheduled for September 2011. There has been no word yet on who will replace Romanchuk as recall proponent in KelownaLake Country.

Optometrists help World Sight Day Morning Star Staff

Some local optometrists are giving the gift of vision to people in need. Irwin, Warner, and Ashton Optometry will be participating in the World Sight Day Challenge on Thursday, Oct. 14 to help give the gift of sight to people in developing countries. Dr. Doug Irwin, Dr. Tuck Warner, Dr. Meghan Ashton and Dr. Karen Pinchak will be donating $50 from every eye examination and $50 from every pair of complete glasses sold on Oct. 14. Monies raised will go to help provide eye exams and glasses to children who cannot see to learn at school and adults who cannot see to provide for their families in countries around the world. In previous years, they have raised as much as $3,500 in one day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our third year taking part in the World Sight Day Challenge, and we are proud to support such

a worthwhile cause,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Ashton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to take vision care for granted here in Canada, but the World Sight Day Challenge is a great way to raise the funds needed to give people access to basic vision care in less fortunate countries. This cause gets our support throughout the year by donations of both money and hundreds of pounds of used glasses collected in the office.â&#x20AC;? Optometry Giving Sight, the charity that organizes the World

Sight Day Challenge, funds programs in developing countries that train local eye care professionals and develops the vision centres which provide permanent vision care to people in desperate need. There are 670 million people worldwide who are blind or visually impaired simply because they do not have access to an eye examination or the glasses that they need. By the end of 2010, Optometry Giving Sight aims to have committed $4 million through its partners to

help provide eye exams and training in developing countries and disaster areas. Just $5 can provide an eye examination and a pair of glasses in some developing countries. This alone could be enough to save someone from the injustices of poverty. Irwin, Warner, Ashton and Pinchak invite their patients and the community to make donations at their practice during the month of October. Their office is located at #100-3605 31st St., Vernon.

MORNING STAR FILE

Curling Classic three-time champion Bob Ursel will miss this weekend’s $72,000 cashspiel.

Three-time Twin Anchors Houseboats Curling Classic men’s champion Bob Ursel will have to sit this one out. Ursel, a 45-year-old Kelowna RCMP corporal is sidelined with a knee injury. He has lined up Vernon’s Ryan Kuhn as a replacement. “I tweaked it at our first practice of the year Tuesday,” said Ursel, who lost last year’s Classic final in an extra end to Kevin Koe of Grande Prairie. “I don’t think I can play this weekend. I’ve played through sore knees before, but I can’t play through this one.” Ursel, who said the knee only hurts when he puts weight on it, hopes to get it “fixed up and get back playing” in what is a busy season for the talented rink which includes Vernon’s Jim Cotter throwing skip rocks and a front end of former Vernonite Rick Sawatsky and Kevin Folk of Kelowna. “I imagine Ryan will throw third,” said Ursel. “I’ll leave that up to them. The front end works so well together.” Kuhn, a 27-year-old pilot, helped his

Former world champion Rick Folk of Kelowna battles Sven Michel of Switzerland in his first game, while Olympic icemaker and Vernon club manager Dave Merklinger goes up against Brent Pierce of New Westminster, who has Salmon Arm’s Paul Cseke at third. Sean Geall of Langley, the 2009 provincial champion, opens this morning at 10:30 against Vernon’s Aron Herrick. The 24 women’s rinks are chasing $35,000 from through Sunday (3 p.m. final). The winner earns $7,500 with the

Kalamalka Lakers’ Robby Filice has his eye on the end zone as he tries to shake the grasp of Vernon Panthers’ Drayton Billick in junior varsity football action Wednesday afternoon at Kalamalka Secondary School.

Cats brush back Lakers Morning Star Staff

The VSS Panthers grabbed a big early lead and hung on for a 28-22 Interior Junior Varsity Football League victory over the host Kalamalka Lakers Wednesday afternoon. Vernon took their first possession to the endzone on a one-yard run by Matt Forsyth. The twopoint convert attempt was no good. Ryan Messer stripped the ball on the ensuing drive and ran it back 30 yards for a touchdown. The two point convert was good for a 14-0 VSS first-quarter lead. Colten Klein used a 35-yard run to set up a twoyard TD plunge. The two-point convert was good to make it 22-0 VSS at the half. The Lakers responded with two unconverted TDs in the third quarter and tied the game in the fourth.Ryan Messer scored the winning TD on a five-yard run with four minutes to play. The twopoint convert run attempt by Matt Forsyth failed. Keaton Hubner intercepted a Kal pass on fourth down to seal the win.

“We got out to a great start and then held on for dear life,” said Panthers’ head coach Sean Smith. “Full credit to Kal, they knocked us around in the second half and made it a great game.” Messer had 14 carries for 72 yards, while Klein rushed seven times for 51 yards and Forsyth had eight touches for 33 yards. Forsyth compled two of eight passes for 55 yards, while Barker went 2-for-4 for 55 yards. Tyson Taylor recorded two catches for 55 yards, while Klein had one 45-yard reception and John Garvie one 10-yarder. On defence, Klein supplied 10 tackles, while Andy Hladik had seven. “I was pleased that we took advantage of the opportunities we were given this week,” said Smith. “We made some big plays when the game was on the line and that was the difference. Our last touchdown drive showed me that the boys had a lot of character.” The Fulton Maroons visted the Salmon Arm Golds Thursday.

Heat-WolfPack match here Morning Star Staff

The UBCO Heat will have four Vernon players on their roster when they face the Thompson Rivers University TRU) WolfPack of Kamloops in exhibition men’s volleyball action Wednesday night at Fulton Secondary. Seaton Sonics grad Jeremy Kler has transferred to Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo, but All-Canadian setter and fellow Seaton grad Preston Tucker is back to spark the Heat with service-line play and blocking. Greg Niemantsverdriet, a 6-foot-3 outside hitter (VSS Panthers grad) who played one season with the UBC Thunderbirds, will be near the top of the Heat scoring board with his high-flying attack. Freshmen Jordan Young, who was a force with the Fulton Maroons last season, is the same size as Niemantsverdriet, and is a skiller passer and attacker adding great depth to the UBCO outside positions. Former Maroon Cailen Lochhead is a 6-foot-2 outside hitter who spent the last few years studying at Okanagan College. He has played a great deal of

outdoor and men’s club volleyball. The team has been selected and sixth-year head coach Greg Poitras said the Heat are “well on our way to what should be an excellent season.” The Heat recently went to Victoria for their annual team building weekend. “In addition to our team building activities, we also played a series of short scrimmages versus the Camosun Chargers,” said Poitras. “This opportunity allowed me to look at a number of different lineups and evaluate how the athletes dealt with pressure and competition.” Last year, the Heat went 16-0, something that has never been done in the BCCAA for men’s volleyball. The Heat defeated Vancouver Island University for the B.C. bronze medal and thent earned a wildcard and the fifth seed at CCAA Nationals in Edmonton. UBCO lost in the semifinals against Limoilou from Quebec, but went on to win the bronze over Humber College from Ontario. TRU placed fifth in the CIS finals last year on their home court. Tickets for the 7 p.m. match are $5 for adults, $3 for students and $12 for a family.

Shawn Bourgeois pulled the hat trick as the Re/Max Rangers bounced the Alexander’s Beach Pub Blackhawks 6-3 in Interior Hockey League action Wednesday night at Wesbild Centre. Bourgeois, a former Vernon Laker and Nanaimo Clipper, also added one assist for the 2-0 Rangers. Dave Penner supplied 2+1 and Steve Vallier earned 1+2 in support of Andrew Hoglund. Tim Proctor pocketed three assists, while ex-UBC Thunderbird Tom Ouchi had a pair for the Rangers. Cory Webb, with 1+2, Ryan Gilowski and Steve Ensing replied for the Hawks. In the early nighter at Wesbild, Logan Massie provided 3+2 as the Westwood Cabinets Flyers thumped the Kal Tire Knights 13-4. Rick Galvagno and Matt Glinsbockel each scored twice for the Flyers, who got 1+2 from Corey Massie, one-time Kelowna Spartan Jarret Watts and Kris Glinsbockel. Rich Hoglund and Manish Bhatt also scored in front of Byron Tiggelaar.

Jake Stuchberry bagged two goals for the Knights, who got singles from Cody Watson and Kyle Engelmier in the penalty-free game. Former Laker superstar sniper Jason Elders supplied 3+4 as the Teale Utility Canucks shelled the M&K Ready-Mix Bruins 8-4 Tuesday night at Civic Arena. Delaney Halifax added 3+1 for the Canucks, who led 4-1 at the break. Troy Killingbeck, with 1+2, and exTrail Smoke Eater Darcy Quiring completed the Canucks’ offence. Rookie Linc Dougan (2), Dean Francks and Justin Ballargeon replied for the Bruins. Play resumes Saturday night with the Bruins going up against the Blue Jay Concrete Hornets (8:15) and the Silver Star Hitmen battling the R.E. Postill & Sons Orphans (9:45), at Priest Valley. On Sunday, the Knights play the Royal LePage Acadians (6:30) at PV, while the Hawks face the Orphans at 8:00, also at PV. The Godard Predators play Moe Joe’s at 8:00, while the Canucks meet the Sharks at 9:30, at Wesbild.

Vipers face hot Smokies Morning Star Staff

It’s been a while since Jim Ingram has seen his Trail Smoke Eaters leading the B.C. Hockey League Interior Conference 10 games into the season. The Vipers (4-3-0-1) will face the Interior Conference-leading Trail Smoke Eaters (7-3) tonight at Cominco Arena. Ingram says an experienced backline and committed bunch of forwards, along with great goaltending from Kiefer Smiley, has the Smokies enjoying success. “You have to go out there with a real mission when you have a lead in the third period,” said Ingram. “We’re making really good choices with the lead.” The big line of Travis St. Denis (3+1), Sam Mellor (1+2) and Scott Jacklin (3A) combined for 10 points as the Smokies stopped the Cowichan Valley Capitals 6-1 before 800 fans Wednesday night in Trail. “They’re a good hockey team; they can put the puck in the net,” said Vipers’ head coach/GM Mark Ferner. St. Denis and Mellor joined the Vipers’ Dylan Walchuk and Mark Basara at the two-day Canada West camp earlier this week in Penticton. A total of 40 players attended the trials for the World Junior A Challenge, Nov. 8-14, at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Jacklin, who leads the BCHL with 5-16-21, was back at Selkirk College taking classes Monday following a five-day road trip and this Sunday he’s off to Pittsburgh for a couple of days to visit Robert Morris University. He also has a trip planned to Anchorage to visit the University of Alaska.

“The group we have in the dressing room right now is a real confident group,” said Jacklin. “I think right now every time we step on the ice we have a really good chance of winning. Mellor, with 11-9-20, and St. Denis, with 10-1020, hold down the other top points parade positions in the BCHL. Cullen Bradshaw and Matthew Laboucane also scored for the Smokies, while Mike Hammond replied for Cowichan (2-5), who visit the Vipers Saturday night. Enderby product and former Viper Nick Amies is with the Capitals. Rookie Destry Straight of West Vancouver earned 1+3 as the Coquitlam Express grounded the Surrey Eagles 5-1 Wednesday night before 600 fans at the Coquitlam Sports Centre. Wade Murphy scored at 3:15 of double overtime as the Victoria Grizzlies clipped the host Nanaimo Clippers 4-3 before 850 fans at Frank Crane Arena. Vernon product Aaron Brandoli’s made 39 saves and earned first star as the Sicamous Eagles stopped the Kamloops Storm 4-0 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Wednesday night in Sicamous. Brandon Formosa (2), Corbin Marcotte and Jung Ahn scored for the Eagles (3-3). The Storm dipped to 2-5. Vernon’s Thomas Swales earned one assist as the Osoyoos Coyotes shut down the host Penticton Lakers 5-0 Wednesday night. The Coyotes improved to 7-0-0-1, while the Lakers fell to 2-6.

Sports SPORTS BRIEFS Sonics take Pen-High tournament

LITTLE ADJUSTMENT

The Seaton Sonics warmed up for today’s UBCO classic by winning the Pen-High Senior Boys Volleyball Tournament last weekend, sweeping the host Lakers 2-0 (25-18, 25-18) in the final. Doug Kozak’s crew stopped the Princess Margaret Mustangs of Penticton in the semifinal and brushed back the Kelowna Christian Knights in the quarters. Seaton defeated the Okanagan Mission Huskies, Mt. Boucherie Bears and Princess Margaret in round-robin action. “We are a bit ahead of our Okanagan competition since we have our whole team back for the big Grade 12 finish this year,” said Kozak. “Jaydon Ward was a major factor for our first tournament win this season. Jaydon is looking stronger than ever and Alex Nolan was scoring at will from the power position all tourney long. “Both Seaton starters were all-stars while setter Adam Tishenko celebrated his birthday by being the tournament MVP.”

Americans brush back Rockets 4-3 Patrick Holland scored twice as the Tri-City Americans clipped the Kelowna Rockets 4-3 in Western Hockey League action Wednesday night before 6,026 fans at Prospera Place. The Rockets led 2-1 and 3-2 by periods. Seconds after Kelowna goalie Adam Brown made a great save, Holland converted a centering pass to tie the game. Connor Rankin scored the winner just under two minutes later. “I think we outplayed them for most of the game,” Rockets forward Mitchell Callahan said on the AM1150 post game show. “We were doing exactly what we wanted to do but we let the gas off a little in the third period and they bounced back and stole our momentum.” Evan Bloodoff, Brett Bulmer and Antoine Corbin scored for the Rockets.

Vernon BMXers win provincial titles Vernon BMXers went through mud, puddles and lots of rain and still looked good as they gathered titles at the Grand Provincial Championships last weekend in Squamish. Competition was stiff as 240 racers from all over B.C. made a good showing, all racing for lastchance title shots. Winning their age category were Dean Botterill in 41-45 cruiser, Tye Krause 7 int and Ian Knopf in both Cruiser and 20-inch classes, Richard Wood in 19-27 x class and Shylo Orchard in 21-25 Female Cruiser. A total of five riders took home silver, including Chris Spence, Faith Riddick, Jeremy Deschamps, Keith Wood and Mark Krahn. Jadon Riddick collected a bronze medal, while Jennifer Bitz not only made top three but did so with a triple fracture of the ribs as a result of a previous crash. Krause tied for first in 7 boys overall but lost out on a tie breaker. Vernon’s Provincial #1 overall champions: Botterill in 41-45 Cruiser, Knopf in 11 Cruiser and 11 Boys, Richard Wood in 17 Boys, Keith Wood in 46-50 Cruiser and Orchard in 31-35 Girls Cruiser.

Rockets split pair with Canadians The Okanagan Rockets split a pair of B.C. Major Midget Hockey League games with the Greater Vancouver Canadians last weekend at the Kelowna Capital News Centre. Josh Ellis (2), Jedd Soleway and Alex Gillies, both of Vernon, Alex Gran, and Mitchell Cook handled the offence as the Rockets opened the series with a 6-4 win Saturday afternoon. Soleway and Vernon products Alex Jewell. Harlan Orr, Mat Lambert and Jordan Burns had assists. Connor De Melo stopped 24 shots in the 3-1 loss. The Rockets were an impressive 3-6 on the powerplay.

The Whippet Club of B.C. is hosting Lure Coursing Trials Saturday and Sunday in Lavington at Icelandic Horse Farms on Langford Road.

Fast dogs ready to race CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

They are the race cars of canines and leaders of the pack, reaching speeds of 70 mph. Known as the speediest breed, greyhounds are just one of several swift-legged pooches whose talents will be on track this weekend. The Whippet Club of B.C. is hosting Lure Coursing Trials, Saturday and Sunday at Icelandic Horse Farms on Langford Road in Lavington. The trials are for all sight hounds which include greyhounds, whippets, Afghan hounds, borzoi, Irish wolfhound, and Scottish deerhounds. This is a chance to see the speedsters of the dog world in action.

One to three hounds race each time on a track after an artificial lure with two judges awarding points for various criteria, including speed, enthusiasm and agility. “This is a nice opportunity to see sight hounds in full speed. It can be breathtaking to see them run the way they were made to do,” said Verena von Eichborn, one of the organizers of the event. The trials start at 9:30 a.m. and go through to about 3 p.m. each day. Well-behaved dogs of all breeds on leash are welcome as spectators. There is also an opportunity to sign up dogs of all breeds for sight hound training in Lumby. For more information call Verena von Eichborn at 250-260-3109.

Wineries, eateries combine to serve up culinary experience this Thanksgiving

Pamper your palate

KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR

Antje Schirwinsky of Crush Bistro serves up a Thai coconut and lemongrass soup. The new Vernon restaurant will be one of 12 local businesses, and 25 B.C. wineries, participating in the 16th annual Pamper Your Palate at the Best Western Vernon Lodge Thanksgiving Sunday, Oct. 10.

Over the years, locals looking for something a little different to ingest than the traditional Thanksgiving dinner have instead gone for the delectable selection of appetizers, entrĂŠes, desserts and libations prepared and served by local eateries and wineries. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to forgo the laborious task of stuffing, trussing and baking a turkey when you can inhale prawns flambĂŠd in Pernod, or a mouth watering chocolate-laden dessert at Pamper Your Palate. Part of the annual Okanagan Fall Wine Festival, and one of the last events of the 10-day affair, Pamper Your Palate returns to the Best Western Vernon Lodge Thanksgiving Sunday, and promises to have the same effect on your olfactory nerve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things you notice as soon as you walk into the room is the smell of food being prepared in front of you. It hits you and instantly makes you hungry,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Sattler, who has helped organize the event since its inception 16 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a stand up and walk event where people will be able to visit 25 wineries who will each have at least five wines to sample. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We usually see 400 people come through the doors. People get their food first and then enjoy the different wines afterwards.â&#x20AC;? Named the best value for your money at the wine festival by The Province newspaper, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pamper Your Palate also includes a local spirits maker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have Okanagan Spirits joining us this year. Even though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wine festival, we wanted to feature local, and Okanagan Spirits is based right here in Vernon. We are trying to get people to shop local,â&#x20AC;? said Sattler. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the food, with 12 local restaurants, bakeries and others tempting all with their respective treats, from savoury appetizers and entrĂŠes to delectable desserts and Belgian chocolates.

Businesses participating include Artistic Edibles, Blue Heron Waterfront Pub, BX Bar and Grill, Checkers Bar and Grill, Chickies Cupcakes, Cottons Chocolates, Crush Bistro, East Side Marioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gumtree Catering, New Delhi Indian Restaurant, Ricardoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mediterranean Kitchen and the Village Green Hotel. As in the past, profits from Pamper Your Palate will go to a worthwhile community cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started this about six-toseven years ago when a local woman was climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro (for the Ascent for Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) and she asked if we could do something as a fundraiser for her. We thought a silent auction would be a good way to sponsor her and the Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society,â&#x20AC;? said Sattler. This year, funds raised will go to the Vernon Community Dental Access Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do great work in the community and have helped people who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford dental care,â&#x20AC;? said Sattler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have so far raised more than $150,000 for the community through this event since it started.â&#x20AC;? Spearheaded by a group of friends, including Lucy Glennon, Kath Raeber, Sue Miller and Judy Rose, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silent auction will feature approximately 90 items, including a painting by local artist Julie Oakes that is worth $1,500, a $300 stay at Silver Star, $100 waterslide passes, pedicures, manicures, wine baskets, and a full page colour advertisement courtesy of The Morning Star. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many people have donated,â&#x20AC;? said Glennon who has been involved with Pamper Your Palate the past 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have lots of gift cards, jewelry, lingerie, purses, theatre passes, liquor baskets restaurant gift passes... â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun and as this is the only fall wine festival event in Vernon, we need to support it so that it can stay in Vernon.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Pamper Your Palate are $40, available at the front desk of the Best Western Vernon Lodge, as well as the Ticket Seller box office at the Performing Arts Centre, online at www.ticketseller.ca or call 250-5497469. The event runs Oct. 10 from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Grand Ballrooms of the Vernon Lodge.

Music is good for you New Vernon resident Arne Sahlen is offering a healthy dose of music as his introduction to the community. The pianist and new faculty member at the Vernon Community Music School (VCMS) presents A Musical Multivitamin Sunday. Sahlen, who has moved here from Kimberley, is teaching piano and composing at the VCMS. As a teacher and adjudicator, he has taught many awardwinning students, and has been likened to Robin Williams for his energy and humour. He has performed in Canada, the northwest U.S. and in Southeast Asia, with a particular focus on Cambodia, prompting a reviewer in Sacramento, Calif. to write: “I am deeply impressed with your maturity of expression which is difficult to achieve tastefully. Your understanding of careful, delicate rubato is greatly appreciated; and your rhythmic talents on everything also mark you as a top professional performer.” Sahlen is bringing along special guest Dylan Matheson, a young guitarist and composer, to the Vernon concert.

Thrills and chills in Armstrong Morning Star Staff

Halloween is coming early to Armstrong. The Haugen Community Health Care Society and the Armstrong Rotary Club host Stage Fright, The “Thrillusion” Show Oct. 8. Billed as 90 minutes of spine-tingling Halloween magic and mystery for the whole family, Stage Fright promises to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Featuring a haunted stage with nerve-shattering illusion guaranteed to give you goosebumps, the show is the brainchild of master illusionist John Kaplan. Kaplan stars in the production along with a cast of dancers and an assortment of spooky special guests. “Members of the

audience will even get into the act, and will also help decide who will be the victim of the infamous guillotine illusion,” said one of the organizers, Don Moor. A fundraiser for local charities, two shows will take place at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church Parish Hall, 3335 Patterson

Ave. Armstrong, at 4 and 7 p.m. Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets in advance at Askews in Armstrong (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) or the Brown Derby Café (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.), this Saturday only, or any time at Margarieta’s Place Restaurant in Armstrong.

ear Annie: Six months ago, I met the girl of my dreams at a restaurant that I frequent several times a week. I was eating lunch there long before she started serving, but the first day I saw her, I began sitting in her section. The problem is, every time she comes by, my tongue gets frozen, my voice changes, the words don’t come out right or I say something stupid. She isn’t seeing the real me. A few months ago, I asked her out. She turned me down, saying she is too busy to date and, besides, she doesn’t date customers. I was bummed out, but I still kept coming to the restaurant, and everything seemed OK. Every day, I like her more. A couple of weeks ago, I couldn’t

Breastfeeding the baby-friendly way STACY PAVLOV Special to The Morning Star

Breastfeeding is a mother’s right, a child’s right and a human right and is something that needs to be supported, promoted and protected, according to health care workers and breastfeeding advocates in Vernon. To keep this issue in the forefront, Vernon is hosting a special event Tuesday at the People Place as part of International World Breastfeeding Week Oct. 1 to 7. All breastfeeding mothers, babies, dads, health professionals and breastfeeding support people are invited to join the festivities from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., hosted by La Leche League Vernon and Interior Health. This year’s theme, “Breastfeeding, Just 10 Steps — the BabyFriendly Way,” is a way to underscore the importance of breastfeeding rights and support through the health care system, prenatal programs and peer support groups. “This is very important because we must promote awareness that breastfeeding contributes to the long-term health of our children,” says Elke Herbus, public health nurse with Interior Health in Vernon. “By celebrating World Breastfeeding Week we are doing our part in the global celebration to promote and support breastfeeding

as a healthy choice.” The local event will be a time for mothers to share their breastfeeding and mothering stories and connect with one another through informal café-style discussion groups and conversation. “We want to celebrate moms who are succeeding and doing well by their children by breastfeeding,” says Herbus. This year’s event, like in the past three years, promises to be a fun morning. Along with discussion, there will be some fabulous door prizes donated by local businesses as well as tasty refreshments. The 10 steps to successful breastfeeding provide a supportive pathway enabling women to achieve their breastfeeding intentions and guiding the training of healthcare workers in breastfeeding support, according to INFACT Canada, a non-governmental organization that works to protect infant and young child health through the promotion and support of breastfeeding. This year commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Innocenti Declaration that called for implementation of the 10 steps in all maternity facilities. During this time, rates of exclusive breastfeeding have increased significantly, however exclusive or continued breastfeeding beyond six months is somewhat stagnant, according to INFACT.

“Whilst rates of exclusive breastfeeding have increased in many countries, there has been decrease in some, partly because of reduced political support for breastfeeding-friendly hospital initiatives…,” says Julianna Lim Abdullah from the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action, a global network concerned with the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding. Some of the 10 steps of the baby-friendly status include: having a written breastfeeding policy that is communicated to all health care staff; informing all pregnant mothers about the benefits and management of breastfeeding; helping mothers initiate breastfeeding within a half-hour of birth; showing moms how to

breastfeed and how to maintain lactation if separated from their infant; giving newborn infants no food or drink other than breastmilk; practising rooming-in; encouraging breastfeeding on demand; giving no artificial bottles or pacifiers to breastfeeding infants and fostering the establishment of breastfeeding support groups. To achieve babyfriendly status incorporating the 10 steps takes a great deal of work, funding and commitment on the health care facility’s part. Though Vernon isn’t currently officially working on this initiative, the hospital and health unit do put into practice many of the 10 steps on a daily basis. “We feel that Vernon has many programs and supports for breastfeed-

BIBLE BASICS

ing mothers and Vernon Jubilee does a lot of the steps and is very supportive around breastfeeding,” says Donna Jewell, public health nurse at Interior Health, adding that public health programs include early maternity discharge, Weight and See weekly drop-in sessions, prenatal breastfeeding teaching and postnatal home visits. “We also work with our community partners like lactation consultants, doulas, La Leche League and the prenatal nutrition program in supporting breastfeeding women. Today there is more online learning for mothers as well,” says Jewell. For more information on Vernon’s World Breastfeeding Week event, contact Stacy at 250-260-4120.

Accused in 1993 murder case ordered to stand trial BY KATHY MICHAELS Black Press

Tears flowed and smiles were in abundant supply outside a Kelowna courtroom Tuesday morning after it was announced the man accused of the 1993 slaying of Jennifer Cusworth will stand trial. “When Jean (Jennifer’s mother) heard the judge this morning, she quietly threw up her arms and said, ‘Yeah,’ and I feel the same way,” said her husband Terry Cusworth, father of the teenager who was found dead, in a ditch on the side of Swamp Road, Oct. 17, 1993. The decision marked the end of a 10- day preliminary hearing, where judge Brad Chapman listened

to Crown counsel’s evidence against Neil George Snelson, 44, to decide whether there was enough information to warrant moving to the next step of the judicial process. The hearing doesn’t determine Snelson’s guilt or innocence, although the date for a first-degree murder trial will be set Oct. 18. For the Cusworths, however, even the decision to move forward with a trial marks the home-stretch of a battle they’ve been waging since their daughter was murdered nearly 17 years ago. Each year since her death, the family has come to Kelowna to make a public plea for any possible witnesses,

“We’ve come one step closer to getting justice for her.” — Jean Cusworth or even the perpetrator themselves, to come forward. They would combine their request with a visit to the area where her body was found, bringing with them flowers and speaking to their daughter. This year, that trip will happen a bit earlier than usual, and its tone will be different as well. “We can tell (Jennifer) we’ve come one step closer to getting justice for her,” said Jean, who said she believed the case would go to trial since the

Oct. 23, 2009, arrest of Snelson, even though her husband was a bit more tentative about predicting the future. While closing this chapter and moving forward does offer the family cause for celebration, the hearing

was far from easy. “It was a hard two weeks and two days…I was in tears a couple of times,” said Jean, of the toll taken by listening to evidence, both verbal and photographic. “It prepares us better for the trial.” She also found a groundswell of support during the last couple of weeks among family, friends and even strangers who filled the seats in the small

courtroom. “I didn’t even know some,” she said. “(They said) we’re praying for you, we’ve followed this case and we want to support you.” Members of Snelson’s family were also at the hearing, although they didn’t stay long after the judge announced a trial would be in order, doing little more than exchanging glances with the father of four

as he was taken away to Kamloops, where he’s been in custody for the last year. While information disclosed during the preliminary hearing is subject to a publication ban, police have previously publicly linked Snelson and then 19-year-old Cusworth as both attending a house party in the 1700 block of Richter Street, the night she disappeared.

Train kills second teen BY MARTHA WICKETT Black Press

It has been a week of disbelief, sorrow and devastation for many members of the community, following the deaths of two young people. Early Sunday, 16-yearold Bradley Jackson died after being struck by a train near Raven. Just four days earlier, Wednesday evening, 19-year-old Tyrel Goerzen died after being struck by a train near Canoe Beach. Students at Salmon Arm Secondary, where Bradley was in Grade 11, were told Monday of his death and were offered the support of grief counsellors. According to Salmon Arm RCMP, he was spotted on the tracks by the conductor and engineer of a westbound CP Rail train about 1 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 26. The crew was not able to stop the train in time, and Bradley died of the injuries sustained in the collision. Police say it is believed he was alone at the time. Foul play is not suspected, nor was liquor a factor. Greg Kitchen, principal at Salmon Arm Secondary, describes Brad as well-liked by both students and staff. “Brad was an exceptional student, a very bright young man, an excellent athlete. Staff and students recall him having a great sense of humour.” He said the school district has provided additional counsellors for the duration of the week to SAS and to Shuswap Middle School, where Brad’s younger sister Gabrielle attends. “I think the emotion around the incident, and losing a young man last week in Canoe, along with some other losses in our community, the cumulative effect is being very emotional. Students are wrestling with the loss as are our staff. Many of them had very fond relationships with Brad.” Brad played hockey, rugby and, this year, football with his older brother Riley for the SAS Golds. More than once he received the sportsmanship award as a minor hockey player. He went to the BC Summer Games with his middle school rugby team when they

him make lots of friends. She and her husband Dave adopted Tyrel when he was two, as well as his brother Levi. She said they were a force to be reckoned with when they were younger, full of mischief. “I’ve never seen two boys together like that – they giggled all day long.” She said Tyrel had no fear when it came to adventure, and understanding consequences for his actions often took many repetitions. Tyrel attended Ranchero Elementary as well as King’s Christian. Joy said she hopes Tyler’s death will serve as a kind of wake-up call for young people who knew him. She said her heart goes out to the train crews and emergency personnel who were involved. Dan Demeter, principal at King’s Christian, says staff and students who knew Tyrel think of him with deep affection. “His good looks, charisma and boyish charm will be fondly remembered as just some of his outstanding qualities. He was a person without malice or meanness and he and his laugh will be sorely missed...”

WELL DONE!

Fall is here ... what’s on your scale? TOM FLETCHER/BLACK PRESS

Pacific Bioenergy CEO Don Steele announces in February an expansion of the company’s Prince George pellet plant to replace coal at power plants in Europe. The pellets in the container beside him represent the energy equivalent of about three gallons of gasoline, and new technology would make them more efficient.

Pellets studied for exporting TOM FLETCHER Black Press

Shipping B.C. wood pellets halfway around the world to fire boilers in Europe seems like a far-fetched business model, but the industry continues to gear up. The B.C. government and a national pellet manufacturers’ group have announced a research project to see if the province can increase its exports by producing “torrefied” pellets, a charcoal-like form of the wood product. Heating wood waste to 200 degrees Celsius or higher in a low-oxygen environment strips out moisture and gases, producing a black material that is more like coal than wood. It has one quarter more energy than wood by weight, and shipping costs are reduced by 40 to 50 per cent. A feasibility study will be done later this fall to determine if a pilot manufacturing plant will be built. While pellet stoves are a common home heating choice in parts of B.C., the international market is mainly a product of government policy. B.C. companies sell pellets mainly to Europe, where power companies earn carbon credits by replacing coal with renewable wood fuel. Forests Minister Pat Bell went to Burns Lake in mid-September to attend the announcement by Pinnacle Pellet Inc. of a new conventional pellet plant near Burns Lake. The privately owned company expects to ship most of its 400,000-tonne annual output to Europe and Asia. B.C. already has pellet plants in Armstrong, Vanderhoof, Quesnel, Williams Lake, Houston and Princeton as well as Prince George, converting sawmill waste and beetle-killed wood to pellets that can be automatically fed from a hopper to run furnaces or boilers. Gordon Murray, executive director of the Wood Pellet Association of Canada, said if the pilot plant is successful it would mean B.C. plants would quickly convert to “torrefaction” technology to stay competitive on the export market.

Sex scandal studied Black Press

The so-called cellblock sex scandal in Kamloops is the subject of yet another probe. The Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP (CPC) has launched a public-interest investigation into the conduct of the four RCMP members alleged to have been involved in watching two female prisoners partake in a sex act in RCMP cells on Aug. 18. The four Mounties on duty, along with three city employees, have been suspended with pay pending various investigations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have received a formal complaint related to the August 18, 2010 incident,â&#x20AC;? said Ian McPhail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In light of this and the ongoing expressions of public concern as they relate to this matter, I am satisfied that there are reasonable grounds to investigate the circumstances surrounding this incident.â&#x20AC;? By instituting a public-interest investigation into this complaint, the commission will appoint its own independent civilian investigator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The CPCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement into this investigation will provide an independent analysis of what transpired and we feel this is in the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best interest,â&#x20AC;? said Insp.

Yves Lacasse, the acting detachment commander in Kamloops. The commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation will examine the conduct of all RCMP members and others appointed or employed under the authority of the RCMP Act involved in the incident. The CPC is distinct and independent from the RCMP and has jurisdiction over public complaints regarding all members of the RCMP.

Summer heat dries out and burns up 350,000 hectares TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The second consecutive hot, dry summer in central and northern B.C. produced the biggest burned area since the province started fighting forest fires, and the lowest northern river levels ever recorded. Fall rains have mostly doused the 2010 forest fires, but not before they burned 350,000 hectares of land. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an area larger than Metro Vancouver, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly a third bigger than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total burned area. The summer of 2009 holds the distinction of being the most expensive B.C. forest fire season ever, with $382 million spent, much of it to protect Lillooet and other communities threatened with destruction. The total for 2010 is expected to come in at a relatively modest $230 million, still more than twice the average for the past 10 years. Forests Minister Pat Bell said the bill was reduced this year, mainly because the largest fires raged in areas with no human habitation. And the affected area was so large, partly because of conscious decisions to let some of them burn. The 2010 forest fire season also produced a new term, the forest fire â&#x20AC;&#x153;complex.â&#x20AC;? These linked fires over huge areas presented another level of difficulty for the wildfire management branch. The recent pattern of drought and fires is the latest indication that climate change is being more acutely felt in B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north, Bell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the most recent work that has been done by the climate change people indicates that there could be a warming of as much as four to five degrees Celsius in the north, two to three degrees in the south by 2050,â&#x20AC;? Bell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If that were to occur, clearly that would change things in terms of the environment weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re facing, not just from the perspective

of wildfires, but also in terms of the species that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planting.â&#x20AC;?

Bell has lived in Prince George for 22 years, and he said the

last two summers have been the hottest and driest he has seen.

He noticed it in his garden, which traditionally hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able

to produce tomatoes without a greenhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My tomato crop

this year was the best tomato crop Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had,â&#x20AC;? Bell said.

Politics and the Peace

S

cientist-activist David Suzuki was billed as the keynote speaker at a recent rally at the B.C. legislature to oppose construction of Site C, a third hydroelectric dam on the Peace River. Suzuki did not appear, so I wasn’t able to determine how he would square his presumed opposition with his furious advocacy for greenhouse gas reduction. In April, his foundation responded to the B.C. government’s announcement that it would proceed to the environmental assessment stage on Site C with a series of recommendations. Those included further environmental assessment (now underway), a province-wide Tom Fletcher study of B.C.’s renewable energy plans and review of the social and cultural impacts on the Treaty 8 First Nations in the region. The Treaty 8 group, funded by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, participated in a 15-month study of the project. The rally marked their determination to reject it. Roland Willson, chief of the West Moberly First Nations, described a hidden agenda to develop the huge Horn River natural gas deposit in B.C.’s northeast corner. “They say it’s for 500,000 homes, but the day after they announced Site C, they announced a power line going up to the Horn River,” Willson told the rally. “That gas is going to go to the Alberta tar sands and devastate the Alberta tar sands area and the First Nations people that live over there. “It’s going to go to dirty coal in our area. It’s going to go to California where they need to turn on their air conditioning because they’re too lazy to open windows down there.” B.C. Green Party leader Jane Sterk agreed. “I think it’s about opening up the Horn River gas basin and the tar sands,” Sterk told me. “And secondly, it’s about trying to create the myth that we’re selling green power to the U.S.” The B.C. Green Party opposes all new hydro development. Sterk advocates wind and solar power, precisely the kind of intermittent sources that Site C would facilitate by providing steady backup power. No one mentioned the planned gas pipeline and port facility to export liquefied gas from Kitimat, where it would displace dirtier fuels in South Korea and elsewhere, or the proposed new gas processing plant near Dawson Creek that will burn gas to generate its power because there isn’t enough hydro power to supply it. Coal mines continue to be developed in northeastern B.C., and without hydro supplies available, they’ll buy it from dirtier sources. NDP energy critic John Horgan, on record for years as supporting the clear engineering case for Site C, received a warm welcome. He called for a scientific and economic, rather than emotional or political decision on the project. Treaty 8 regional chief Liz Logan warned of mercury in fish as a result of the dam. That’s the kind of claim that is seized upon by environmental campaigners such as the Wilderness Committee

and Sierra Club of B.C., who helped organize this rally. It’s true that flooding vegetation promotes bacteria that bring naturally occurring mercury into the food chain. It’s also true that this declines as the vegetation decays, as a 2008 study of whitefish and bull trout in the Peace River tends to confirm. It’s also true that mercury occurs in fish all over the world, and in terms of actual mercury concentrations, Logan and others in the region should be more concerned about canned tuna purchased at grocery stores in Fort St. John. But you won’t hear much about climate change or science in this debate. It’s all about the politics.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) This could turn out to be one of those days when all those little nothing purchases could add up into one whopping sum, so stay on your toes. You could empty out your wallet in no time at all.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Let others take center stage if you are uncomfortable in the presence of someone who has a powerful influence over your work or career. Don’t talk; just smile and be attentive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your awareness for detail is likely to be much sharper than usual. However, don’t use it for nitpicking but only to recognize problematical flaws that can be corrected.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) A known gossip who doesn’t have your best interests at heart might skillfully try to get you to talk about things you shouldn’t. If you’re aware of things and on your toes, you can remain mum.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Should you be pushed together once again with someone with whom you recently crossed swords, don’t pick up where you left off. Use this as a second chance to start over again.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Unproven tips passed onto you by a well-intentioned friend should not be taken at face value. Your pal might mean well, but his or her information is likely to be greatly distorted.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Hanging out with friends who are penny-wise and poundfoolish doesn’t mean you have to be like them. Only you have control over your wallet, so use your personal power to control your spending.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) No one should be allowed to make a critical decision for you without your permission and, even then, only in a dire emergency. Without full knowledge of your affairs, such actions could be destructive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be logical at all times, rather than wishful, regardless of how much you want something to be true. If your assessments are bad, so will be the results of your actions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Keep your thoughts to yourself, especially if they are ones that make you feel superior to others. There is no quicker way to lose friends than to act as if you think you’re better than everyone else. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You are asking for nothing but big trouble if you find more to criticize in your mate or special someone than you do to praise. Concentrate only on your loved one’s finer qualities. ARIES (March 21-April 19) It’s always important to acknowledge someone who goes out of his or her way to help you, but it may be even more so at this juncture. Next time, a “no thanks” will get you “no help.”

HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE ROUND UP

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder Eleanor Roosevelt said, “One thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you. When you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.” That applies to bridge because new aspects of the game arise regularly. In this deal, two leads are important: the opening heart and your first spade. You are in three notrump. West leads the heart three and East plays his nine (or covers dummy’s 10 with the jack). What would you do? North’s jump to game was a slight overbid, but with all of his nine points in the two four-card suits, it was reasonable. If,

though, North had settled for a two-no-trump rebid, you should have raised to game because your hand has three aces and a jack10 combination. You have six top tricks: one heart, four diamonds and one club. Three spade tricks will see you home, but how should the suit be played? If the six missing cards are splitting 3-3, it won’t matter what you do. But you should also allow for one 4-2 break -- with West having ace-doubleton -by leading twice toward the hand with two honors. However, before that, do you win the first trick? What was West’s lead? A fourth-highest three. And since dummy has the two, the hearts must be

4-4. So there is no point in holding up. Take the first trick and lead a low spade toward dummy. After winning that trick, play a low diamond to your hand and lead a second spade. When West’s ace pops up, you have nine tricks. You lose only one spade and three hearts.

Cards of Thanks

Thank you

The family of Theresa Dorothy Goertz would like to express their most heartfelt thanks and deepest appreciation to all for the loving care given to ease her passing as she most fervently wished - at home. Those involved in her care are too numerous to mention by individual name. Dr. D. Williams for initiating and overseeing implementation for her plan of care. The Community Care nurses for providing moral support, valuable information as well as impeccable care. The Care Aids merit a very special thank you. You were a bright spot in her day, an invaluable social contact in her limiting circumstances, particularly those who formed a special connection with her - you know who you are. Thank you. Those friends whose unfailing loyal support and help assured us that we were not alone during the difficult last days. Finally, to all the others who contributed to her care and comfort in some way during her final decline, a simple thank you seems so inadequate, but it is offered most gratefully.

Sincerest thanks, the family Career Opportunities
