Vernon aims for no tax hike in 2011 RICHARD ROLKE

“I think we can get to zero and still keep the city running.”

Morning Star Staff

The City of Vernon will be sharpening its pencils when developing the 2011 budget. Council decided Tuesday to try and target a zero per cent tax increase as part of the upcoming budget deliberations. “A lot of citizens have had a really rough year,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. “I expect the budget to reflect that. We haven’t come out of the recession as fast as we thought.” Coun. Jack Gilroy says that increases in previous years may allow the city to hold the line in 2011. “Everyone on council wants to hit that mark,” he said.

— Jack Gilroy “I think we can get to zero and still keep the city running.” However, there are some reservations about the possible impact a tax freeze would have on the city’s activities. “It means we’ll be making some very difficult decisions in the process,” said Coun. Buffy

Baumbrough. “I don’t want to back off our commitments on the official community plan.” And specifically, Baumbrough believes there is a need to keep expanding alternate modes of transportation such as transit. “We don’t want to say no, no, no to everything just because we’re targeting zero per cent,” she said. Coun. Shawn Lee sees zero per cent as a worthwhile goal, but forecasts that the ultimate tax increase may be something slightly over zero. “There are always things that come up and we can’t ignore. We’re running a city here,” he said. Staff has suggested that council give three

readings to the proposed budget bylaw in early 2011, prior to the official public input session. That hasn’t gone over well with Coun. Bob Spiers. “The public input should become before third reading. It sends the signal we’re going to ignore them,” he said. However, Mayor Wayne Lippert is quick to defend the public process the city has followed in recent years, including allowing residents to provide feedback at a series of working sessions. “The public has had more opportunities to speak. We have had more public input than ever before,” he said. There was a 1.9 per cent residential tax increase in Vernon in 2010.

Senior fortunate after mishap ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Members of the BX-Swan Lake Fire Department helped extract an elderly Vernon man from his car in his BX garage following a bizarre incident Saturday afternoon. The 93-year-old gentleman escaped serious injury after he was moving his Buick out of his two-car detached garage in the 3400 block of East Vernon Road at around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, with his wife guiding him, in order to rearrange his lawn tractor and snowblower in the garage. The man backed out of the garage into the fairly wide driveway.

Then, for some reason, the man drove at a great rate of speed into the middle of the garage, hitting the main support beam, a concrete brick and block planter and the other car in the garage before getting some air time. “He took out the planter and when he went through the wall it must have launched him about a foot-and-a-half-to-two-feet inside, almost like a skid, still going at a good speed,� said BX-Swan Lake fire chief Bill Wacey. “As he pummeled towards the front of the garage, the car came down to rest on top of the lawn tractor, which was dumped over.� Wacey said the Buick’s passenger door was blocked in by

2011 KIA RIO

the other car, and the driver’s side was blocked by one of the garage doors trapping the senior inside the vehicle. The windshield was also smashed quite hard in the accident. The driver could have been removed from the Buick’s back seat if he could have crawled over the front seats, but he couldn’t. A neighbour loaned the fire department his tractor to help shore up the main support beam, and then firefighters cut away the garage door to help free the man, who suffered only lacerations on his hand in the accident. The driver was also shaken up by the incident, as was his wife, who barely managed to get out of the way of the moving vehicle.

Restructuring Greater Vernon’s parks and recreation function is getting a rough reception. Vernon council discussed a draft agreement to change how parks, recreation and culture services are provided Tuesday. While no decision was made, some officials are reluctant to split operation of parks and facilities between the member jurisdictions. “I’m very uncomfortable with this,� said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. “We’re all citizens of the Mary-Jo O’Keefe North Okanagan and with parks, they go across lines quickly. To divvy things up shows no vision.� If restructuring proceeds, some parks and facilities will be identified as regional in scope while others will be considered local. Regional assets will be the Vernon Performing Arts Centre, Wesbild Centre, Swan Lake Park and the Grey Canal Trail. All other parks and facilities would be considered local and be the sole responsibility of their host jurisdiction, including Polson Park, Kal Beach and Kin Beach. O’Keefe wonders how the list of facilities was divided. “Why isn’t the recreation complex considered regional? It’s the only indoor pool,� she said. While the agreement calls for the city to make all decisions on the Vernon Recreation Complex, the financial contribution from Coldstream and Areas B and C towards operations would be reduced by half because they would not have a vote on matters. “Control will come at a cost to our taxpayers. I’d be happy if it stays as it is,� said Coun. Bob Spiers, referring to the current situation where all of the participants pay fully towards

0 + 500 84 %

$

operational and capital costs. Coun. Shawn Lee is also questioning the process. “I like the idea of regional parks. It’s worked well for a long time,� he said. However, city staff indicated that the regional process has complicated the ability to plan for parks and facilities, and that would be simplified if the city was in control of those issues in Vernon. “With local parks, we’d get more done,� said Mayor Wayne Lippert. “The regional district does not have a vision of local parks.� Lippert is concerned how the other jurisdictions will respond if Vernon does not ratify the agreement to restructure parks and recreation. “We could look at withdrawal by Coldstream or Areas B or C and that could change the structure,� he said, adding that if they completely leave the function, they will provide no funding to any services. “This way (agreement), they are showing some ability to participate.� Vernon council will discuss the agreement further at its Oct. 25 meeting. Coldstream council discussed the draft agreement after The Morning Star’s deadline Tuesday.

Conservation officers on the hunt for shooter ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Somewhere out there is a remorseful hunter, and local conservation officers want to find him. Conservation officials are appealing to the public for information about the individual who illegally shot a six-by-seven-point bull elk at 10 a.m. on Oct. 5 near Falkland, and for information about the person who confessed to the shooting in an anonymous e-mail three hours later. “The shooting took place off Highway 97, seven kilometres north of Falkland about 100 metres from a road construction site shack,” said conservation officer Josh Lockwood. “There is no elk season in this area.” One shot was heard by a highway worker who gave a description of a vehicle that sped off. Conservation officers attended the scene and tried to find the injured elk, which had been shot by a bullet in the rear end. The animal, however, took off and was not found or recovered. Elk are protected in that area for conservation reasons, there is no season and nobody can kill an elk there because there are believed to be only 17 of them in the

“I think he feels bad for what he did.” — Josh Lockwood small herd. Just after 1 p.m. on that afternoon, an e-mail was received at a site Lockwood called nobody@serverbritishcolumbia, with the writer confessing to shooting the elk. The e-mail was unsigned. “I feel terrible and deeply regretful for what I have done. I want to confess to someone,” said Lockwood in reading from the writer’s e-mail. The writer explained he was driving from Kamloops along Highway 97 when he saw a herd of elk in a field off the highway, including the large sixpoint bull elk. He pulled over to phone a friend to check the rules for shooting off the highway, and the pair determined that a shooter must be 200 metres from any structure, not on posted land and within 15 metres of the side of the road. “I regret I did not double check my regulations. I stalked the elk and shot it. When I got back to my truck I had

received a text message from a friend who said ‘Don’t shoot it.’ I panicked and fled.” The writer claims to have returned to the scene to see if anyone was in the area and that he was more concerned about recovering the animal and deeply troubled by his act. He said he saw a vehicle, panicked again and left the area. “It was just me. I was dressed in street clothes. I got caught in an adrenaline rush. And I am very sorry for being a coward and not turning myself in.” Lockwood believes the author is remorseful. “I think he feels bad for what he did and doesn’t want to suffer the consequences,” said Lockwood. “Because there’s a conservation concern, there is an issue. If he does feel remorse, then him stepping up to the plate is an opportunity for him to tell his story.” The fine for such a first offence can be up to $250,000 and/or six months in jail.

Officials are working on getting information as to where the e-mail was sent from. Officers were able to get a description of a suspect vehicle in connection with the shooting, a white Ford diesel pick-up with a quad in the back. A licence number was obtained, 3636-JX, however it is incorrect. But officials believe the suspect vehicle’s plate has numbers similar to that. Anybody with any information on the person or the vehicle is asked to contact 1-877952-RAPP (7277), *7277 on a cell phone, or through the North Okanagan-Shuswap Crime Stoppers’ website, www.nokscrimestoppers.com. Lockwood believes the injured elk did not survive. “I think the fact it had injuries to its rear end and ran through two fences because it couldn’t jump over them would mean the elk is likely dead,” he said. Conservation officials are also investigating the shooting of a bull elk near Sugar Lake. Officers have a licence

Water restriction rescinded Morning Star Staff

Greater Vernon’s water system is no longer being disrupted by road construction. The water main relocation at Coldstream’s grid road project was completed late Friday, meaning the North Okanagan Regional District has rescinded a request to all Kalamalka Lake water users to reduce consumption. “The utility thanks those customers who altered their water use during this time,” said Al Cotsworth, utility manager. “We would also like to thank CGL Construction for its speedy work in moving the water main.” It had been anticipated that relocation of the water main may have continued until Oct. 18, after work began Oct. 6. There had been concerns that with the primary water main for the Kalamalka Lake source off line, the other smaller lines wouldn’t be able to keep up with water demand.

Forty students participated in the academy last year, with seven from the Vernon School District, 16 from Kelowna, eight from Kamloops, nine from the North Okanagan-Shuswap and the remainder from other communities. Some of the academy graduates have pursued careers in policing, but many have also gone into the social services sector. “They look at this seven days as life-altering,” said Pakenham. “This is a value-added project for any community that sends a cadet to the academy.” Coun. Buffy Baumbrough defends council’s decision, saying there is a need to support an initiative that has a long-term impact on youth. “There’s an opportunity for youth to learn teamwork, respect and accountability,” she said.

Witness sought in hit and run ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP are still hunting for a witness to a serious accident earlier this month involving a motorcycle and a pedestrian. The incident happened shortly after midnight on Oct. 1 on 41st Street near Bella Vista Road. “Investigators are trying to locate a witness who was observed operating a white-coloured SUV in the area of the accident,” said Vernon RCMP Sgt. Dave Evans. “That witness still has not come forward and it’s very important the RCMP speak to that

witness to collect any information from them. We are appealing to that witness to come forward.” A 49-year-old man was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital following the accident with serious breaks of his legs and internal injuries. He was expected to be moved out of intensive care last week to another ward at the hospital. A 50-year-old man was charged with failing to remain at the scene of an accident and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm in connection with the incident.

DISTRICT OF COLDSTREAM DISTRICT OF COLDSTREAM OPEN BURNING

WATER MAIN FLUSHING NOTICE The Regional District of North Okanagan - Greater Vernon Water in conjunction with the City of Vernon and District of Coldstream Operations will continue with Water Main flushing. Over the next two weeks flushing will occur in the following areas: • Coldstream: • Duteau System (previously known as Antwerp System) - From Murphy Road west. • Duteau System - Aberdeen Road and east including Uplands and Cypress subdivisions. • Vernon: • Duteau System – Middleton Mountain, North and South BX, East Vernon, Old Kamloops Road, Blue Jay Subdivision, Stepping Stones and Swan Lake. 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 a reduction in water pressure and sediment or discoloration of the water. 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 • Brushing teeth

The Ministry of Forests Burning Ban has now been lifted. An Open Burning period for parcels 2 ha or larger, with an approved burning permit, for the Fall of 2010 is scheduled for Friday, October 15th until Friday, October 29th, 2010. Only one Burning Permit is permitted per property per year – anyone who had a burning permit in the Spring of 2010 is NOT eligible for a Fall 2010 Burning Permit. Open burning includes the burning of vegetation (defined as prunings and garden refuse only – no grass burning). Permits can be obtained from the District of Coldstream Municipal Office, at 9901 Kalamalka Road. Venting Index must be higher than 55. AS OF OCTOBER 30, 2010, ALL BURNING WILL BE PROHIBITED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

• Washing fruits and vegetables • Making beverages or ice

• 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

Police score major coke bust CHERYL WIERDA Black Press

Two West Kelowna men are among four people facing drug charges after nearly $4 million in cocaine hidden inside a fruit grinding machine from Argentina was intercepted by Canadian officials. It’s the second largescale cocaine seizure by B.C. border officials and RCMP to be announced in as many weeks, although officials say there is no evidence the two drug cases are linked. This latest investigation began on Sept. 22, when border officials inspecting a 2,300 kilogram fruit grinding machine noticed the machine was too heavy and its origin and destination — Kelowna — were suspicious. Using a fibrescope, which has a camera on the end, border officials were able to see something “unusual” inside the machine’s steel drums and later seized 97.5 kilograms of cocaine. RCMP say that translates into more than 97,000 doses of cocaine, valued at between $3.5 and $3.9 million, based on kilogram sales. “This was a highly sophisticated concealment, requiring various tools and examination techniques,” said Nicole Goodman, chief of operations air cargo for CBSA, during a press conference Tuesday at the Kelowna airport. The RCMP joined

For the record The Morning Star wishes to clarify an article in the Oct. 10 edition. Six communities in the North Okanagan Regional District are being asked to contribute $67,000 annually over three years to the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process, not $334,600 as was reported. The $334,600 is the total cost of the program, which currently involves the Columbia-Shuswap and Thompson-Nicola regional districts. We apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused.

the investigation following the discovery by border officials and say the machine and drugs went on to their destination in Kelowna through a “controlled delivery.” The drugs were brought to an outdoor storage facility in Kelowna — which police said had no knowledge of the drug trafficking — where police say there is evidence that the fruit grinding machine was breached. Police did not disclose if the drugs were then taken to another location or if they remained with the machine. “This should be alarming to everyone that people are going to this kind of magnitude and depth to import illegal substances into Canada,” said Supt. Brian Cantera, the officer in charge of the federal drug enforcement branch of B.C. As a result of the investigation, two West Kelowna men were arrested. Barry Michael Ready, 50, was arrested at a ranch outside Merritt, which police say he does not own, and Clifford Roger Montgomery, 33, was arrested at his home. Immediately following the Oct. 4 arrests, officers searched a rural property outside Merritt and a home in West Kelowna. The exact locations have

not been disclosed by police. Also wanted in the investigation are 32-yearold Tariq Mohammed Aslam of Surrey and 43-year-old Victor Perez Rodriguez, a Mexican citizen. Police aren’t disclosing the alleged roles each of the four people charged played in the drug smuggling. All three Canadians are known to police, and RCMP say they have recommended drug trafficking charges against Ready that stem from another investigation. Cantera said police

are in the “initial” stages of this probe, but confirmed the fruit grinding machine was transported by air from Argentina to Miami, and then trucked from Florida to Vancouver. Border officials say it entered B.C. through the Pacific Highway crossing. Police could not say if the drugs were placed in the machine in South America, or if they were concealed in the machine at another point on its journey to Kelowna. Officers also aren’t certain where the cocaine was to go after it was intercepted.

Start by reading the mortgage rates that are posted online and find out what a competitive rate would be. Then make an appointment with a mortgage broker or financial institution (there is no cost to you) to determine your ability to make payments on a

mortgage or line of credit. The mortgage broker will qualify you to purchase a home based on your income, debt load, the loan amount, interest rate etc. Ask if a floating rate is best right now or lock in for several years as interest rates are low. When you are pre-approved for a mortgage, consult your REALTOR®. Let him/her know the price of the property that you have qualified for. When you have an accepted offer on a home that meets your criteria, your REALTOR® will direct you to seek other services, such as a home inspection, insurance and legal services that you may require in order to complete the transaction. Good luck to you.

Fighting perceptions

W

hether it was just once or regularly, we’ve all turned down our noses or averted our eyes when walking past someone who appears to be homeless. Thoughts range from, “Lazy, get a job,” to “drug addict.” But consider that the person you shunned didn’t just materialize out of thin air. They are someone’s child, parent, spouse or sibling. You may have gone to school with them or coached them in minor sports. Inevitably, as you or I try not to make eye contact, another notion comes to mind: “This will never happen to Richard Rolke me.” But as these individuals grew up, it’s highly unlikely they ever envisioned themselves sleeping behind Polson Park, couch-surfing or begging to get into one of the limited number of shelter beds in Vernon. How long would your finances last if your job ended tomorrow? Could you manage to keep paying the rent or the mortgage, particularly when most of us have stretched our credit and minimum payments are putting us deeper in the hole? Think you will bounce right back with a new job? Perhaps, but are you willing to accept minimum wage or something that doesn’t reflect your skills or knowledge? The Okanagan’s never been overflowing with highpaying work and the recession has only made that situation worse. What if you are seriously injured and can’t ever work again? Disability pensions aren’t that lucrative. It’s believed that about 90 per cent of the Gateway shelter’s clients have some form of mental illness, and their focus is simply surviving day-to-day and not pounding the pavement for a job. Mental health can be debilitating and life-threatening, especially when agencies that provide assistance have had already

tight budgets cut even further. And yes some of the people on the street are addicted to drugs or alcohol, but so may be people in your home, neighbourhood, church or office. Without the support and compassion of loved ones or those same cash-strapped organizations, lives can spiral out of control and homelessness becomes unavoidable. North Okanagan residents are known for their generosity, and that certainly rings true for the underprivileged. Mountains of nonperishable items are donated every year to the food banks, while tons of used clothes are also given away. Obviously this is all terrific and I encourage people to keep helping out, but it’s also easy to restrict your actions to emptying out your closets. There is never any personal interaction with those on the receiving end. They remain anonymous and instead of considering them as people just like ourselves, the stereotypes persist. Homeless Action Week runs until Saturday, and I can’t think of a better time for all of us to challenge our perceptions about the homeless and how they got to be where they are in life. The one thing that can be done is not slinking around them to avoid contact. Not all of them are looking to bum a smoke or spare change. They may be just out walking downtown, soaking up the sights and sounds, like you are. And even if they do approach you, exercise your right to provide cash or not, but don’t act like they’re not there. It could be that politeness and a smile may do more for them than a few coins will. Also consider how you would want to be treated if you were in their shoes. Would you want to be treated like a pariah or have someone wish you good morning? I know what I’m suggesting may not be easy, and I will certainly have to motivate myself to evolve. But it’s time that we stopped considering homelessness as an us-and-them scenario.

Politicians within Vernon and Coldstream appear split on proposed restructuring of the parks, recreation and culture function. Some are suggesting that the system which has been in place for almost 40 years should remain in place instead of splitting up control of parks and facilities between the participants. And such discussion is welcome but where were these same politicians when the entire debate began months ago? Why weren’t they speaking up then? If restructuring proceeds, most assets will be split up. This goes completely against the fact that we all use these facilities and have all paid towards operations and capital over the years. The financial implications from restructuring could be significant. Vernon will be virtually on the hook for the recreation complex as Coldstream and the electoral areas will not have a vote on activities there. As a result, they will only contribute half of what they do towards operations. On the other hand, Coldstream taxpayers could be liable for any upgrades needed to the wharf and structures at Kal Beach. Long-term upgrades for Polson Park wouldn’t get one nickel from Coldstream or the electoral areas. Some have suggested that restructuring is needed so local communities can have more say over park maintenance, or planning for new parks and facilities. But there must be a way of addressing these concerns within the current formula while not throwing the baby out with the bath water. In the end, there is little indication that the public’s best interest is being served, particularly when the politicians wait until the 11th hour to express doubts about the process.

Boaters deserve better

I

n reply to Mrs. Strangward's letter where she says "local residents should be surveyed instead of fixating on what boaters want." The Kalavista Neighbourhood Committee just completed a survey in which only residents of that neighbourhood could participate in. In that survey they found that 68 per cent of people in that area own a boat and that 77 per cent of people support the launch. She may not be aware of the study as it was handcrafted by the Kalavista committee but did not turn out the desired response, and has rarely been referred to. This committee has been meeting with the mayor and councillors, as well as Coldstream staff ,for the past two years on a monthly basis, and has had ample opportunity to express its concerns. On the other hand, the boating public has had no meetings with Coldstream and has had to carefully read through meeting minutes to find out what will happen next to our right to access the lake. When I asked council to open this up to a public debate or meeting, they said they did not feel it necessary. The situation at the Kalavista boat launch is not perfect and there are

concerns but it is still the main access at the north end of the lake. At a recent boat launch study meeting, Warren Smith, from the RCMP's Lake Watch program, said they attended the Kalavista launch area and overall it was under control and there was only the occasional problem. When contacted, he stated that his office only received a few complaints over the entire summer. It does get very busy for a short period of time but it is no less safe than trying to cross Kalamalka Road, from the beach parking lot with your family, to the beach at the dangerous and poorly marked crosswalk. These same people feel that everyone should be made to use the Kekuli launch

SAD BUT TRUE A couple of months ago in the early morning hours, one or two individuals took it upon themselves to vandalize and commit thievery on my vehicle. They smashed a window and tried to steal the truck, but failing that, they vandalized the interior, ripped the stereo out of the dash, and stole various items. At the same time, they came on to my property and stole the solar lights (the ones that change colours) from around my rock garden. In the early morning hours of Sept. 14, an individual or individuals again came on to my property and stole the solar lights that replaced the ones previously stolen. Approximately 20 lights were taken this time. In the first incident, ICBC was gracious enough to affect repairs on my vehicle for a fee. The lights stolen from my property were not the cheap kind, and we are out of pocket for these thefts. I live in the BX, and I enjoy living here.

which is already overcrowded and full most summer weekends. There are also huge concerns with having to pull on and off a major highway with a truck and trailer and our families. This is the Okanagan and like it or not, it is one of the main boating capitals of Canada. Several Coldstream councillors and members of the Kalavista committee have publicly stated that tourism does not benefit this area and that boating is an inconvenience to the local residents. The Major Lakes Recreational Marine Study done in 2008 concluded that boating and spinoff to local businesses pumps almost $40 million dollars into the Central Okanagan's economy alone. We all benefit and put up with increased traffic in the

I don't understand why some idiot deems it "fun" to vandalize my property and commit theft against me. Maybe they weren't taught properly at home, or perhaps they didn't have a good example growing up. In any case, these actions are just an example of some people's stupidity. People of the BX beware. There are those in society who don't care about you, about your property, or any hardship that they may put you through. As long as they are having "fun," that's all that matters. It doesn't matter to them that their '"fun" is at the expense of others. It is sad but true. Gary Dyck PROPERTY PURCHASE TAX We were pleased to hear comments from Minister Coleman at the UBCM conference regarding his commitment to improving housing affordability by reducing taxes, but we disagree with some of his assertions.

summer months. Many local businesses rely on these busy months to make or break their year. Many of us have purchased our homes in this area because of the easy access to local lakes. We are growing tired of the implications that we are ruining the lakes and causing pollution and poor water quality. One of the head water quality technicians in this area stated that boating has virtually a nil effect on our drinking water and that boaters are "just an easy target." I was responsible for getting a garbage can put on the end of the Kal Lake dock as I witnessed huge amounts of garbage entering the lake from this area which would ultimately be blamed on boaters. I also stop to pick up foreign debris whenever I can and make sure that nothing from my boat enters the lake. Boaters love the lake also and are concerned with keeping local lakes as clean as possible. Boaters are also willing to work with helping to make sure local lakes are safer and easier for all user groups to enjoy. This anti-boating sentiment has to stop. Lorne Pearson

The amount of the property transfer tax (PTT) paid on the purchase of a new home valued at $500,000 is actually $8,000, not the $5,000 he claims. In fact, when you add the harmonized sales tax to the transaction, the total tax paid is $43,000, even with the provincial rebate. Anyone can calculate the taxes owing on a transaction by visiting our website at http://www.bcrea.bc.ca/sheltertaxes/resources.htm This is one of the reasons that B.C. has the highest homeownership costs in the country and why we have asked the government during its recent pre-budget consultations to implement a three-year phase-out of the PTT and restore fairness to home buyers. We look forward to working with the government to find ways to make homes more affordable for British Columbians. Moss Moloney, president, British Columbia Real Estate Association

HST STALLING "MLA believes HST referendum has merit." Boy, I'll bet Eric Foster does because he does not want to cast a vote now that he knows the majority of taxpayers in B.C. are against it. I believe a vote in the House is not only the least expensive way of dealing with this issue, it will also allow all of us to see how many of the MLAs are listening to us. It's time for each MLA to stand up and be counted. Just vote now. No more stalling. G. and R. Johnston

Optimists bring out the best in youth Morning Star Staff

Optimist club members have one motto, “Bringing out the best in kids,” and countless, creative ways to achieve that mission statement. A group of area residents is hoping to bring a branch of the worldwide organization to Vernon to start new youth projects and work with existing youth-oriented groups. “Everything they do is for kids and you can’t argue with that concept,” said Jan Mori, one of the people who wants to start the new service club. Three members of the Optimist Club of Coquitlam were in Vernon last week to talk about how the organization works and to meet with Mayor Wayne Lippert. “Our club is a friend to youth. We do that through a lot of pro-

grams such as speaking and essay contests, junior curling, golf and talent shows and promoting safety and presenting scholarships, working with community partners when appropriate” said Earl Pollock a 35-year member of the Optimist Club of Coquitlam. Hal Griffin, a 41-year member of the club said he has stayed with it because of the results he sees in youth. “Our music academy, music festivals and choirs give young people a chance to participate whatever their talents and interests. The members meet on a schedule that suits them and hear guest speakers and network. It’s a great organization and we’d like to see something happening in the interior of the province,” he said. Clubs have associated youth clubs called

JOOI (Junior Optimist Octagon International) which help young people learn leadership and the values of volunteering and good citizenship. Other activities include providing Opti Bears to victims’ assistance programs and after school programs. “We are here to serve the youth of the community and adapt and develop programs to suit local needs and interests,” said Peter Smith, who has been an Optimist Club member for 30 years. Lippert expressed his support for the new club and said he would talk about it at a city council meeting. “We have so many people here with knowledge and skills and I can see a lot of synergies that could take place in the community,” he said. While the club focusses on youth, it

News Libraries seek lower postage Morning Star Staff

Proposed legislation that would help libraries reduce postage costs has the support of Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes. Bill C-509 would legislate the library book rate and expand it to other materials beyond books, including CDs and DVDs. “I am supporting C-509 because it will put more money in the hands of local libraries,” said Mayes. “The less money libraries have to spend on postage the more money they will have for new library materials.” The library book rate, under its current form, is a discounted postage rate offered by Canada

Post to libraries for shipping books. Through interlibrary loans, local branches are able to offer a much larger collection of materials to local library users. Approximately 65 per cent of volumes mailed under the library book rate are destined for libraries and library users in small towns and rural locations. “Libraries are a cornerstone for public information, literacy and early childhood activities across the country, and play a crucial role in offering services to new immigrants and in supporting citizen engagement,” said Mayes. Bill C-509 has been put forward by Merv Tweed, a Manitoba MP.

“The first hour of debate on Bill C-509 took place May 28,” said Mayes. “I look forward to the second hour of debate in the House of Commons this fall and the government looks forward to continuing its support of this initiative.”

Dental clinic eager to spread smiles Morning Star Staff

The Community Dental Access Centre volunteer committee has been working tirelessly for years to provide a dental clinic with services based on income. Now, with many of the goals and objectives met, there has been a space chosen for a clinic and renovations are underway with the clinic expected to open in the new year. “This has been an evolving process and we have kept our goals and objectives in mind and met them,” said Lesly McMillan, clinic co-manager with Chris Turner. The four-chair clinic will have professional dental care staff and a resident dentist starting next summer. Volunteers will assist with things like paperwork. The downtown clinic space is currently being renovat-

ed and assistance from a contractor and donations in kind of building supplies would be greatly appreciated. Resident Jessie Crawford-Brown believes all donations help. “I have decided that I will start saving at least $10 a month to build up a fund to give to the centre. And I will dump the change from my purse regularly and donate that. Even small amounts add up,” she said. “There are a lot of seniors without dental care and other people of all ages from all walks of life who are eager for this clinic to open. I hate to think of children being in pain.” Tanis Farina, settlement counsellor for Vernon and District Immigrant Services said she sees clients who have poor dental health and it

prevents them from getting work and adjusting to their new life. Preventative dental care for children and adults will be an important part of the Community Dental Access Centre. For more information, call McMillan at 250-5468681 or Turner at 250558-5877 or see www. communitydentalaccess. ca.

Love and adventure take a front seat Caroline Woodward gives readers an Odyssey set in B.C. with her new book KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

C

aroline Woodward has been on a few Odysseys during her lifetime. She’s been a bookseller in the Kootenays, has travelled around this province, and the world, extensively, and has had a previous book of short stories and a novel win literary awards. The author of the recently released Penny Love Wade, Wade Loves Penny (published by Oolichan Books) is about to set off again –– on a book tour that brings her to the Vernon library Saturday. The Morning Star caught up with Woodward, who lives and works with her husband, tending the light station on Lennard Island, off the coast of Tofino, just before she left. 1. MS: Your story is sort of an Odyssey B.C. (That’s British Columbia, not before Christ.) And I see some parallels to your own biography – from growing up in the Peace River region to ending up as a lighthouse keeper off the west coast of Vancouver Island. I gather the journey in between has given you so many stories to draw from. What similarities lie between your life and those of your main characters in Penny Loves Wade, Wade Loves Penny? CW: I think of Penny as my doppelganger, the one who stayed in the Peace, started a family at a fairly young age, a community-minded person very tied to the third generation ranch she came to when she was a young bride. She is a domestic goddess and like her, I love baking bread and making dill pickles and preserves and planning big feasts for friends and family. Whereas, Wade is my inner trucker. He loves the open road, as do I, and likes a variety of landscapes and the novelty of the new; he’s very open to different people and experiences. I’ve travelled and worked in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Europe, Britain, Cuba and elsewhere in Canada so I certainly share happiness with new adventures. Also, like Penny and Wade, my husband and I have run a business together (The Motherlode Bookstore in New Denver) and now, working in isolated and challenging conditions as light-keepers, we are again working side by side. So I know a thing or two about that kind of intense teamwork experienced by most ranch, farm and business couples. I also grew up on a homestead in the

Author/lighthouse keeper Caroline Woodward, from inside the historic Pachena Point Lighthouse, travels to the Okanagan this week to read from her new book, Penny Loves Wade, Wade Loves Penny. She is at the Vernon library Saturday from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Peace region, was a 4-H member for eight years with gardening and sewing clubs, rode our horses a lot and did a lot of heavy manual labour so I can write about those kinds of subjects with lived experience behind my words. 2. MS: Anyone who has read (Homer’s) The Odyssey, Mary Renault’s books, or even D’Aulaire’s, knows how in Greek mythology, the hero must usually take a life affirming journey (usually meeting up with some threeheaded beast!) And then there are the strong female characters who are either holding up the home-front, or providing some diversion along the way. Can you describe for our readers where your characters fit into these roles? (I especially love your take on the Sirens!) CW: I had fun with these classic characters and although I hope the story is enjoyable for those who have not read The Odyssey, I think it will reward those who have in much the same way as watching the Coen brothers’ film, O Brother Where Art Thou?, which is yet another retelling of The Odyssey. Penny, of course, is Penelope, the clever and loyal wife of the wandering Odysseus, who protects his kingdom while he is off for 18 years fighting here and there on the Greek Islands. Wade means “wanderer� and so I decided that was the right name for my Odysseus, a wanderer who longs for home when he realizes he has gone way, way off track and is in peril.

Some of the roles I adapted for the 21st century in this novel are the Lotus Landers, the dodgy bunch on the west coast island “two ferry rides from Vancouver Island;� Cyclops, the one-eyed giant, is the dangerous leader of a biker gang in the Rock Creek area; Circe, the woman who turned men into swine, is the owner of a thriving business on the outskirts of Kamloops, which offers food, drink, lodging, garages and dubious entertainment to the knights of the road, and so on. The Sireens are an incredibly good alt. country all-woman band hailing from Smithers, a good music town, and I made two competing garages, each one more of a rip-off than the other, to represent the notorious Clashing Rocks. I ended up creating two women in the role of Calypso, the healer, and could not resist making one Jamaican. There are also minor characters here and there as well but those are the main ones. And, just as in the original classic by Homer (not Simpson), I made sure there was a faithful dog because I love dogs! 3. MS: Almost every part of this province, including the Okanagan, plays a role in the book –– from inside the pages to outside. Even the jacket cover has a valley connection. Can you tell us about it? CW: One of my earlier books, Disturbing the Peace, has a wonderful landscape on the cover, which the artist Jim Brennan painted, using photos I’d taken in an airplane over

the patchwork quilt fields of the Peace River country, with the river running through it. A dam was added, plus a giant rooster and scientists in lab coats descending in parachutes. So I wanted a cover for this book which reflected the wonderful Peace River landscape because I want to mythologize it, to make understood and beloved, that northern landscape in my novel. But this is 2010, so my husband Googled “prairie� and “quilt� after hearing me muse out loud about the cover. My character, Penny, is a quilter, not a weaver, like the original Penelope of Ithaca. And what should come up but Marilyn Harris’ marvelous series of paintings called Prairie Quilts. Fortunately, Marilyn, who now lives and has a studio in Kelowna, was amenable to Oolichan Books adapting the one I chose, Prairie Quilt #2, for my cover. I will finally get to meet Marilyn on my upcoming book tour and it is already one of the highlights for me. 4. MS: Goodland (where Wade and Penny are from) sounds like the land of milk and honey, literally. Describe to us southerners, some of whom grow grapes and apples for a living, what life is like up in the Peace. C.W. The Peace River region was the last major homesteading region in all of Canada, which meant that forested or open prairie land was still available in quarter sections (160 acres) for those hardy souls who were able to “prove� it by fencing and ploughing a certain number of acres annually in order to have a claim to the land. It also coincided with First Nations being pushed off the good, arable land onto reservations where the land wasn’t as desirable for agriculture. Landless immigrants from war-torn Europe and prairie farmers bankrupted by the drought of the 1930s made the long and arduous trip to the “green and fertile� Peace district. The Chinook winds through the Pine Pass of the northern Rockies made some winters bearable but generally speaking, the winters in the Peace are dark and bitterly cold. However, come spring and summer, the proximity of the Peace to the Arctic Circle means 20-plus hours of sunlight and the gardens and crops grown on the rich topsoil (class I and II land for the farmers reading this) and sandy loam of the Alberta Plateau are nothing less than astounding. Zucchinis have “stretch� marks along their sides, scratches from little rocks in the soil due to growing so quickly in this neverending sunlight. In the priceless valley lands of the Peace and its tributaries, melons, pumpkins and the entire squash family, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn and every other root crop and salad vegetable was and is grown in a micro-climate that is rare in this province.

REGIONAL DISTRICT OF NORTH OKANAGAN NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Notice is hereby given that a Public Hearing will be held in the Board Room of the Regional District of North Okanagan, 9848 Aberdeen Road, Coldstream, B.C. on October 20, 2010 at 4:00 p.m. to hear representations on the following matter[s]:

ELECTORAL AREA “F” OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN AMENDMENT BYLAW NO. 2458, 2010

Author shares her “Peace” of the world Continued from page A16 The early photographs of garden produce displayed on the porches of log cabins are just wonderful and when word of this deep topsoil and productivity began to spread, the settlers began to arrive in droves. Farmers sent prize-winning exhibits of wheat, oats, barley, potatoes, etcetera to the World Fairs and the blue and red ribbons added to the lustre of the Peace as a land which grew all manner of amazing produce. However, the vagaries of the winter climate, which can go from -32 F to 32 above in 24 hours and back again, then as now, defeated the best intentions of many of those homesteaders. The northern summers are not as searing hot or dry as the Okanagan, which makes it possible to grow vegetables and grain crops without constant irrigation but the northern winters are a test of character. 5. MS: You mentioned you have a children’s picture book on the way, entitled Singing Away the Dark. It’s also based on your roots growing up in the Peace River, but tells of story anyone who has grown up in rural Canada can relate to –– that is walking a long way to catch a bus to school. Do you have romantic notions for rural living, and if you were offered an opportunity to move your family to the city, would you take it, and if not, why? CW: When I was a young woman in the ‘60s and‘70s, going “back

to the land” was a big part of the cultural ethos for many disaffected young and not-so-young people. I had no romantic fantasies of doing anything remotely like that, never mind grinding grain to make bread, barefoot and pregnant in my peasant dress. I was off to travel the world and see the great cities of London and Rome and Delhi. But it’s odd how things come around in one’s life. I grew up on an isolated homestead and loved it but I didn’t want to raise my family like that. I wanted us all to have easy access to school and choir practice and soccer games and music camp. My idea of perfect living as someone now approaching retirement is to have an apartment in a city for the winter so that I can go to the music concerts and lectures at the universities and galleries and to live theatre and dance, to enjoy all the arts and stimulating people that I appreciate so much.

Impersonator is crazy for Cline Morning Star Staff

Bonnie Kilroe knew right from the start that she was meant to play Patsy Cline. Growing up at the coast, she wore out her Patsy Cline cassette tapes listening to them. She then auditioned for the lead role in a production of A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline. “I was so excited, I went out and rented a wig, and did a song that I was sure no one knew, but at that time, I was not yet a very seasoned singer and... did not get the role,� said Kilroe, who brings her Evening With Patsy Cline show to the Vernon legion Oct. 23. Despite the rejection, the audition turned out to be a pivotal moment as it turned the aspiring performer down the path of her current profession as a celebrity impersonator. Kilroe has since added 14 characters, including Cline, to her two-hour musical-comedy celebrity impersonation show, which she has performed at casinos, on cruise ships and for corporate events. And she has just returned from Las Vegas where she performed two showcases at a celebrity impersonator convention. “I did three characters in the four minutes twice with only 15-second costume changes. (It was) crazy, but I pulled it off and got some great feedback from the panel of judges,� she said. Kilroe is bringing her Vegas Meets Vaudeville show, with odes to Cline, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe, Barbra Streisand, Cher, Tina Turner, Carmen Miranda, Dolly Parton and others as a fundraiser for Partial Kids with Cancer to the Creekside Theatre in Lake Country Oct. 22. And she plans to return to Vernon next year with the show. “I love interaction with the audience and the more connection, the better. When I do my big 14 character Vegas Meets Vaudeville Show it is mandatory and I bring people up to help me out as Dolly Parton, Marilyn Monroe and Cher.� However, it’s Cline who Kilroe has the most personal bond with. “I have had a very amazing exciting roller coaster love life with more hurtful heartaches and breaks than I care to count, yet I really feel that the experience I have had helps me connect to every sad and beautiful lyric in Patsy Cline music,� she said. “I make fun of the tragedy of losing love and being heartbroken, but make no mistake, when the song is sung, the tears will fall.� Kilroe will bring her Patsy Cline tribute to the Royal Canadian Legion in Vernon Oct. 23. Tickets are $25, with dinner at 7 p.m. and the show at 8 p.m. For information and tickets, call 545-3295 or 542-2696.

Film digs up true story about hermit Vernon Film Society

For its fourth movie of the fall season, the Vernon Film Society will screen Get Low, an audience favourite at the 2009 Toronto Film Festival. The movie is loosely based on the true story of a “living funeral” staged by a Tennessee hermit in 1938, a funeral that reportedly drew at least 8,000 attendees. Director Aaron Schneider and his screenwriters have turned that local legend into a simple, folksy yarn that serves mainly as a showcase for 79-year-old actor Robert Duvall. As Felix Bush, a mysterious eccentric living in the Tennessee backwoods, he’s the target of wild rumours about his past made credible by the sign on the road to his property that reads: “No damn trespassing.

Beware of mule.” One day Bush walks into the local funeral parlour and announces to the undertaker Frank Quinn (Bill Murray): “‘Bout time for me to get low. Down to business. I need a funeral.” He plans his burial plot, his gravestone, and his farewell speech. He wants this all to happen now, while he’s still alive and can enjoy getting the value for his money. More importantly, he wants a big funeral party where the guests will be invited to tell tales about him, good or bad. The tale the audience wants to hear, though, is the old man’s own story –– the reason that has caused him to shun his fellow human beings while living alone in the woods. Bush’s plan, which also involves raffling off his land, promises to be a cash cow for the financially stretched under-

taker who intends to milk it for all it’s worth. It seems the Depression has even hit the funeral trade as Quinn asks, “What do you do when people won’t die?” Quinn digs up two people from Felix’s past –– Mattie Darrow (Sissy Spacek, in her first role opposite Duvall), a sweet-natured widow Felix briefly dated decades ago, and Rev. Charlie Jackson (Bill Cobbs), who remains silent when asked about his relationship with the hermit. The details of Felix’s self-exile and dark past won’t be revealed, though, until the man finally unburdens himself on the big day. As Roger Ebert says, “It’s a genre piece for character actors is what it is, and that’s an honorable thing for it to be. Perhaps Robert Duvall is the only man alive

who could make his big speech here sound like the truth – and sincere. But he does.” Music lovers will enjoy the score, a mixture of 1930’s greats Bix Beiderbecke and the Ink Spots with the bluegrass of Nashville band The Steel Drivers, who

Activity BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL Assume a more active role in your social or fraternal affairs in the next 12 months, as conditions are looking favorable. It is likely to be an especially good cycle for making and developing long-term relationships with new friends.

PUZZLE NO. 203

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Before making any social arrangements with your friends, make sure there is no one at home who is depending on you. Your plans could radically interfere with theirs and cause complications. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Needless hurrying enhances carelessness, so for the sake of your own productivity and efficacy, pace yourself sensibly, especially where important work is concerned.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 100211 6

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You might have to be on your toes so that a contest doesn’t develop between your prudent judgment and your extravagant whims. Keep a tight dominion over your wallet. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Unless you’re careful, material issues could quickly generate much anger and a lot of friction in your household. If you let this happen, it will lead to nasty disputes and arguments. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Let bygones be bygones by refusing to revisit something that angered you in the past, especially if you find yourself dealing with an individual involved in that matter. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Prudent management of your resources is always essential, but it could be especially so while financial trends are a bit uncertain. Don’t allow yourself to cross over to the red column from the black. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Keep everyone who doesn’t belong out of affairs that pertain to your work or career. Without intending to, they could muck things up for you, and cause all kinds of complications. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Relationships with friends could be a bit tricky, so don’t try to do anything that pals might interpret as being manipulative. It would quickly provoke a falling out.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) It’s wrong to think that you have to depend on others to back you up on what needs doing, because you’re quite capable of handling everything. You’re not weak or ineffective. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Strive for a good balance in handling people over whom you have authority. If you’re not unduly dictatorial or too easygoing with them, you’ll get a lot more cooperation out of them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) When making comments to co-workers, weigh your words carefully so that others don’t think you’re pitting one person against another, which could cause a rebellion. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It’s not your nature to be possessive of those you love, so take care that you don’t become overly protective or controlling. Give everyone plenty of room to be him/ herself.

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.

Bridge by Phillip Alder Here is another deal from a charity proam in Saint Louis in August to raise money for BackStoppers, which supplies financial aid to the families of police officers, firefighters and medical workers who died in the line of duty. How should the defense have proceeded against two hearts after West led the spade four? South’s weak two-bid wasn’t textbook. The quality of his hearts was poor and he had so much in the other suits. These days, though, no duplicate player passes when he has a long suit and can preempt. West wanted to say, “Double. And it is also my lead.” But, of course, double would have been

for takeout, so he had to pass and hope his partner balanced with a double, which he could pass, converting it to a penalty double. However, East judged not to act. (East knew it was probably right for him to do something. However, he was afraid that if he did bid, say, two spades, West would have carried the auction too high, expecting East to have a stronger hand.) Declarer took the opening spade lead with his king and played the diamond queen. West won with his ace and shifted to the club three. East took the trick with his ace and returned a spade, hoping his partner would ruff. South won with dummy’s ace and cashed the king-jack of diamonds,

discarding a club loser and going down one. What did East miss? West led the club three, a low card. This announced at least one honor in the suit and interest in winning tricks in that suit. If West had had a singleton spade and wanted a ruff, he would have shifted to a high club.

Comfort you can count on.

News Our Okanagan website puts business at consumer’s fingertips Morning Star Staff

Our Okanagan is a new online service that is designed to connect those looking for a local product or service with those that can provide it.

The site (www.ourokanagan.ca) is available to local businesses and non-profits to provide details about what they offer. “Right now, the focus is on getting businesses and non-profits

to register and post a profile,” said Leigha Horsfield, a Community Futures employee who is assisting in the promotion of the site. “Once we have many businesses registered, we will then focus on

promoting the site to consumers as a resource to find local products and services” The goal of the site is to stimulate the local economy by connecting consumers to suppliers.

“In our work with local companies, we have found them sourcing supplies and services outside our region that are readily available right here,” said Jane Lister, member of the site steering committee.

Midget Vipers secure silver Morning Star Staff

Four straight wins earned the Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers a berth in the championship final of the Seafair Ice Breaker Midget Tier 1 tournament in Richmond, Monday. A couple of weird bounces for goals was the difference in the final as the Vipers fell 4-2 to Seattle Northwest Admirals. Trevor Pickett scored twice on the powerplay for Vernon, and another manadvantage bid with the goalie on the bench failed to get the Vipers any closer to the fast-skating Americans. The Vipers made it to the final of the eight-team tournament by winning all three of their round-robin games and disposing of Hollyburn Winter Club 3-0 in Sunday's semifinal. Colton Thibault scored on the first shift against Hollyburn, and sealed the

Sports

victory with a late goal in the second period on a nifty passing play with Pickett. Ryan Scheidt recorded the other marker. Game MVP Danny Todosychuk made several stellar saves to shut down the Vancouver team. Vernon scored two late goals in downing the previously undefeated Juan de Fuca Grizzlies 3-2. Brett Hawrys smacked home the winner with 8.3 seconds left even though a tie would have secured first place for the Vipers. Hawrys also scored in the first period, with Scheidt notching the other one. Pickett and Thibault both recorded two assists. The Pickett, Hawrys, Thibault line was a threat to score all weekend. Vernon clobbered Comox Valley 7-1 earlier Saturday with Pickett supplying the hat trick. Chris Nonis scored twice and Thibault and Hawrys each collected

1+2, with Richard Meaney also contributing two helpers. The Vipers opened the tournament Friday night with an 8-1 victory over the Seafair Islanders. "We had a great tournament," said Vipers' head coach Jim Armstrong, assisted by trainer Craig Carter. "We won four games in a row, including a great character-building, come-from-behind win over Juan de Fuca. These early-season tournaments are all about bonding and coming together as a team and we achieved that. There's stuff to work on but it's a great start to the season." The Vipers return to league play Friday night at Civic Arena against Okanagan Hockey Academy and battle Kelowna Pursuit of Excellence Sunday night at Prospera Place.

GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff Pat McGillis was probably starting to wonder if he had crossed the hockey gods in some way. Despite earning a regular shift and getting plenty of opportunities, the second-year Vernon Viper forward had gone nine B.C. Hockey League games without scoring a goal. The 19-year-old Calgary productâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolve paid off Saturday night, as he collected first star and a pair of goals, including the winner, helping the Snakes sweep their weekend home-and-home series against the Westside Warriors with a 6-4 win before 1,766 fans at Wesbild Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just felt like I was snakebitten, I was getting the chances but the pucks just werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going Pat McGillis in,â&#x20AC;? said McGillis, a Notre Dame Hounds grad. Reunited with Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer Dylan Walchuk (3A), McGillis was the beneficiary of a pair of gorgeous setups, the first a saucer pass for a shorthanded tally with 33 seconds left in the second period. Regarding the winner at 12:48 of the third period, McGillis added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew it was coming out front and I was just hoping it would hit my stick and it did. Wally set me up with two nice ones and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain about those.â&#x20AC;? The Warriors (5-6-1) handed Vernon (7-41-2) an early opportunity as defenceman Peter MacIntosh ran over Darren Nowick, earning a hit from behind and an ejection just 46 seconds into the game. The Snakes went right to work on the powerplay, controlling possession in the Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; zone for a full minute before Adam Thompson (1+2) wristed a shot through traffic, beating netminder Kevin Boyle from the left point at 1:58. Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach Darren Yopyk was left shaking his head after the MacIntosh penalty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only been in the league for one year now, and all five games weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in this building weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a penalty in the first two-and-a-half minutes. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that very often, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave it at that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made some big mistakes and it cost us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a young group and we have a lot of young guys, as does Vernon, but the two teams worked pretty hard and they got one more bounce than we did.â&#x20AC;? Brayden Sherbinin (3rd goal), with the first of his two on the night, converted a sweet give-and-go with Tyler Krause to pull the Warriors even at 17:44 of the first. See KAKOSKE on B3

Mustangs raid coast Continued from B1 The Watkins Motors Mustangs made the Pee Wee AAA final of the Seafair Ice Breaker, falling 6-2 to Surrey in Monday’s final. Carson Gray and Zac McCall scored in a game which was close until midway through the third. MVP Michael LeNoury had some solid contact and was part of a solid defensive core all weekend. The Mustangs defeated previously unbeaten Seafair 4-2 in the semifinals, goals coming from Matt Kowalski, Kaden Black, Josh DeCoffe and Jagger Williamson, into an empty net. Black was a solid choice for MVP. Watkin Motors, coached by Chris Kopp, went 2-1 in the round-robin, opening with a 3-0 win over the Ridge Meadows Rustlers. Jarret Campbell, Black and Williamson scored with helpers going to Le Noury, Noah Turanski and Brett Lambert. The MVP was Billy Cawthorne with the shutout. Surrey stopped Vernon 4-2 with Josh Evans enjoying a solid game in the Vernon net and the offence coming from game MVP Williamson and Lambert. Game three was pivotal for the Mustangs to progress to the semifinals and they delivered with a 5-3 victory over Seattle. Williamson (2), McCall, Black and Gray handled the offence. The MVP with a strong leadership game was Lambert. The Nixon Wenger Pee Wee Tier 2 Thrashers attended the Abbotsford Icebreaker tournament over the long weekend. With a short bench, they opened the tournament Friday by losing 4-1 to Westside. Jason Shaigec scored the lone goal from Riley Swiscoski. MVP was Jordyn Pimm and the Unsung Hero went to defenceman Bryn Bedard.

On Saturday, the Thrashers faced a massive Abbotsford entry and battled hard for a 3-3 tie. Abbotsford led until a power play goal from Dean Whitcomb (assist Shaigec), tied the game at 1-1. Pimm’s rebound got tagged by Travis Jackson to equalize a 2-2. Vernon took the lead with six minutes to go when Seth Blundell converted on a scramble. Abbotsford tied it with a minute left. MVP went to Shaigec and Unsung Hero to goalie Jacob Holland. Nixon Wenger then lost 3-0 to Tier 1 Port Coquitlam with MVP going to Whitcomb and Unsung Hero to Molly Box. The Thrashers then earned a 5-0 win over Surrey Tier 2 in cross-over play. Whitcomb’s rebound was buried by Shaigec just three minutes in and then Bedard took a shot from the blueline which deflected off one a Surrey defender for a 2-0 lead. Colton Skead finished the first period with a goal off of Ethan King’s rebound shot from the point. Kyle Sherwood put a backhander top shelf to make it 4-0 late in the second and Swiscoski finished off the thumping with a goal in the third. The 32-10 shot advantage for the Thrashers helped earn the shutout for Shane Meadahl. MVP went to King and Unsung Hero to Skead. In Atom Development league play on Sunday, the Valley Wood Remanufacturing Venom doubled the Kelowna Icehawks 4-2. Levi Danbrook scored twice on assists by Coleton Bilodeau and CJ Storey. Caden Danbrook and Gavin Fleck added singles. In exhibition action Saturday, the Venom fell 7-5 to the Kamloops Ice Ducks. Fleck (2), Bilodeau, Steven Benischek and

The Thrashers’ Jason Shaigec cuts around an Abbotsford defender at the Pee Wee Tier 2 Icebreaker Tournament last weekend in Abbotsford. Ben King added singles. Assists came from Levi Danbrook, Dylan Sedlacek and Braeden Cooper. In other Atom league action, host Penticton scored on a three-on-one with 87 seconds remaining to edge the H&L Glass Wolfpack 6-5 at the Okanagan Hockey Academy Arena. Penticton led 5-2 midway through the third before Wolfpack captain Powell Connor bagged sweet back-to-back goals followed by another by Pimm. Connor tipped in a pass by Drayden Dougan and then went coast to coast. Eric Noren and Nick Mitchell also scored for the Pack. The North Okanagan Knights Atoms won two league games, ambushing the Chase Chiefs 9-3 Saturday at the Nor-Val Sports

Centre led by Matthew Dolinar 4+1 and Mitchell Brown with 2+1. Devon Canning also scored twice with Jake Crandlemire adding a single goal. Kord Haller, Juli Gilowski and James Francis chipped in with assists. On Sunday, the Knights defeated the Merritt Centennials 7-4 at the Enderby Arena with Haller pacing the attack with 2+1. Brown continued his great two-way play with a goal while Dolinar had 1+2 and Canning, Austin Clarke and Bryan Brew also scored. Caedon Bellmann and Wyatt Fowler split the goaltending duties in both games. The Knights received strong defensive efforts from Brett Zbytnuik, Griffin Evans and Damian Coljee-Fehr.

Knights' Shawn Holliday (left) and the Chiefs' Branden Redschlag race for a loose puck during KIJHL action Sunday at Nor-Val Sports Centre.

North Okanagan Knights’ head coach Sylvain Leone called it his team’s best allround effort of the season so far. The Knights exploded for four straight second-period goals as they brushed back the Kelowna Chiefs 4-1 before 150 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League fans Sunday afternoon at Nor-Val Sports Centre. “It was our best 60-minute game of the year,” said Leone. “All year long our third periods have been strong. This time it was back-to-back-to-back solid periods.” Before the game, Leone urged his squad to forget they are largely a rookie club, and to go out and play with intensity.

“They came out hard, but we did as well. We wanted to be physical and we were aggressive on the forecheck,” he said. All of North Okanagan’s scoring came in the second half of the second frame, with Rick Soo starting the shooting spree at 11:14, assisted by Colin Minardi and Shawn Holliday. Minardi made it 2-0 with a powerplay marker two minutes later, assists to Brodie Clark and Kurtis Hagen, who played with the Knights for a stint last season. Steven Pantazopoulos, assisted by Cory Bulach and Brendan Jost, and T.J. Dumonceaux, assisted by Holliday and Clark, completed the Knights’ offence.

“We predicted Kelowna would start to take some chances in the second period, and they did,” said Leone. The Chiefs’ lone goal was scored by Turner Lawson with 22 seconds remaining. Leone said it was probably the Knights’ only defensive breakdown of the entire game. The win improves the Knights to 7-4, bringing them into a two-way tie with the Chiefs (7-6) for second place in the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference, with two games in hand. North Okanagan host the Princeton Posse (3-7-1) Friday night and the Kimberley Dynamiters (4-6) Saturday, both games at Nor-Val.

Sports

Kakoske collects pair Continued from B1 “It was a nice feed from Krause there, and I just got it at the net and shot it,” said third star Sherbinin, a Kelowna native. “We played a lot better than (Friday) night, we worked a lot harder and just didn’t get the bounces.” Vernon snatched the lead back a minute later as Bryce Kakoske’s fifth goal, a dumpin from centre ice appeared to take a slight deflection off a Warrior defender, handcuffing Boyle (24 saves). Kakoske (6th), who earned second star, kept the Vipers rolling a minute into the second period as he wheeled to the faceoff dot and unleashed a wicked riser, beating Boyle high blocker side. The Vernon native is taking his role as a team leader seriously, and Vipers’ head coach Mark Ferner has rewarded him with a larger job description. “In five years in this league, I’ve never been on the penalty kill, but it’s been nice so far,” smiled Kakoske, who came into training camp 20 pounds lighter. “It’s been nice to see all that hard work in the summer has come around.” After a solid outing Friday night, Ferner didn’t hesitate to keep his 20-year-old line of Kakoske, David Robinson and Kyle Murphy intact. “We decided to put the old grizzled line together… there’s a reason they wear grey in practice – they’re probably the oldest line in the B.C. Hockey League,” smiled Ferner. “They were very good (Friday) night and

we weren’t going to take that away from those guys.” With Vernon leading 4-2 after 40 minutes, the Warriors clawed back into the game with third-period goals from Alex Grieve (5th, powerplay) and Quinn Gould (2nd) to tie it. Vernon responded on the very next shift with McGillis’s winner. Mike Zalewski, taking a stretch pass from Murphy, went in alone for a breakaway goal to add some insurance. Said Ferner: “I’m proud of our guys. They came back and tied it and we just stuck to our systems and our game-plan and came out with a victory. “That’s the key. It speaks volumes of the character of this group. It’s how you respond when bad things happen.” Netminder Blake Voth recorded 20 saves for his seventh win. It was a much-needed home win for the Vipers, as they improved to 2-2-1-1 at Wesbild. They are 5-2-0-1 on the road. Vernon will pit their third-ranked defence (2.60 goals against average) against the host Trail Smoke Eaters (8-5-0-1) Friday night at Cominco Arena. They entertain the Smokies Saturday at Wesbild. SNAKE BITES: Viper grad Sahir Gill has earned Hockey East’s Rookie of the Week Award with the Boston University Terriers. Playing in BU’s Icebreaker Tournament, the Terrace product recorded five points and was a plus-five, setting up both gamewinning goals.

Maroons swamp Wave Morning Star Staff

The Fulton Maroons unleashed some groundand-pound Saturday at Grahame Park. Entertaining the Westsyde Blue Wave of Kamloops in high school senior AA boys exhibition football play, the Maroons rushed for more than 350 yards in a 31-6 victory. Tailback Kris Davidson supplied a pair of rushing touchdowns – a 21-yarder and a 10-yarder – and Greg Hyde reeled in a pair of short aerial strikes from quarterback Ben Olson. Davidson hustled for 149 yards on 13 carries, Dalton Anderson was good for 98 yards on 10 touches and Matt Parlee added 76 yards on 11 attempts. “He ran very hard all game, made people miss and also ran over some players. He was a little banged up but played with a lot of heart,” said Maroons’ head coach Mike Scheller, of Davidson’s effort. Scheller credited Fulton’s offensive line for opening big holes for the backs, controlling the line of scrimmage and protecting Olson in the pocket. “The coaches were happy with the effort of the boys, and we executed well in many facets of the game,” added Scheller. “We got an early lead, so we were able to sub a lot of players in, and also try a variety of things offensively.”

Dan Ferreira added a one-yard plunge into the end zone to complete the major. Ferreira (25 yards) and Mike Tkatschow (nine yards) also moved the ball on the ground. In the air, Olson went 9-for-17 for 73 yards and one interception. Kyle Richardson delivered one toss for 26 yards. Hyde (35 yards), Anderson (26 yards), Cody Nevens (22 yards) and Cole Lawrie (14 yards) hauled in catches. Lucas Hofer was stellar defensively, registering nine tackles. Mike Ochoa (5), Olson (4), Richardson (4), Davidson (4) and Dustin MacDonald (3) also helped stop the Blue Wave offence. Olson supplied a pair of sacks and Hyde returned an interception for 10 yards. Defenders Anthony Marchand and Xavier Morris played the run well, and got some pressure on Westsyde QB. The one area where Scheller wants Fulton to improve is team discipline as he felt they took too many penalties. Both the Fulton seniors (3-2 overall, 1-0 league) and juniors have a bye this week. The juniors host the Seaton Sonics Wednesday, Oct. 20 (3:30 p.m.) at Grahame, while the seniors entertain the NorKam Saints Saturday, Oct. 23 at noon.

Magnums add Bighorns to trophy case Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Magnums grounded the Columbia Valley Bighorns of Invermere 45-14 in Southern Interior Midget Football League action Thanksgiving Sunday at Grahame Park. The Bighorns came out fast, scoring a converted touchdown on their first possession. Vernon responded with Hayden Jones scoring through the middle, converted by Bryce Barker. Vernon quarterback Keenan Jespersen added another TD, and then intercepted a Bighorn pass on defence to end the first quarter with a 13-7 Magnum lead. Vernon (5-0) came out flying in the second quarter with Jones running in two more touchdowns, while Jespersen threw a 35-yard TD pass to Kris Boring. The Magnum defence also stepped up, with middle linebacker Landon Koenig stripping the ball and Barker intercepting a Bighorn pass. In third-quarter action, the Vernon defence dominated, with Koenig sacking Bighorn QB Ty Green while Barker added another two interceptions. The Bighorns scored their only other converted TD in the third quarter which was answered by another Jespersen major. In the final quarter, Jespersen ran in the last Magnum TD of the game. “The Magnum linemen were the unsung heroes of the day,” beamed head coach Bill (Lumpy) Tarr. “Vernon's game MVP was Zac Warner for his efforts to control the line.” In Pee Wee league play at Grahame Park, the Vernon Yellow Jackets defeated the Salmon Arm Colts 14-6 in a thriller. Salmon Arm scored on their second possession of the game, a well-executed sweep from 35 yards out. After that, it was all defence for the Jackets as Salmon Arm only got three more first downs the rest of the game. The defence was a definite team effort as 13 players recorded solo tackles. Keith Jones, with two QB sacks, a forced fumble and fumble recovery, and Weston Vanderveen with 3.5 tackles for a loss and

QB Keegan Vicklund led the offence, running six times for 58 yards and two touchdowns. First-time running back Issac Olsen had 10 carries for 43 yards, softening up the defence for running backs Morgan Nichols and Dylan Huber to contribute significant running yards. Vernon’s punting game was the difference maker in the defensive battle with kicker Morgan Nichols able to consistently punt the ball for 30 yards and Vicklund making three solo tackles. Vernon host the Kelowna Bears this Sunday (noon) at Grahame Park. The Vernon Blue Bombers smothered the West Kelowna Sundevils 28-6 in Atom action. Ethan Anderson sparked the Bombers with more than 100 rushing yards and two touchdowns to keep Vernon's playoff hopes alive. Nez Ford opened the scoring with a 25-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. Kayden Doughty topped the scoring late in the fourth quarter.

"Another strong outing was put on by Tristen Baker and Trey Winstanley running the ball," said coach Jeff Anderson. "The offensive line had a strong game and standing out was Tayber McLean. The defence had an outstanding game keeping the Sun Devils at bay all game long." In Junior Bantam action, the Kelowna Lions clinched second place with a 22-0 win over the Vernon Marauders at Grahame Park. With nine of their starters either sick or injured, the Marauders failed to mount an effective attack. Max Chapman and Jacob Mayner were the offensive stars with several solid rushes, and new QB Brandon Isaac performed well. Vance Rogers, Mariah Klein, and Jordan Taylor also played solid games. On defence, Carter Olsen Stiles recorded eight tackles, while Jonah Anesty, Nyla McPherson and Bryce Sorensen had four each. Mack Henry, Connor Kamon and Tyler Smith were also solid on the D.

WARREN HENDERSON Black Press

KELOWNA – To a man, the Okanagan Sun rated its performance in the BCFC semifinal as mediocre – at best. And no one in orange and brown is expecting the same kind of effort to be anywhere near sufficient this Sunday when the Vancouver Island Raiders come calling. "Absolutely, we can't execute the same way against a team like the Vancouver Island Raiders or we'll be in trouble," Sun head coach Peter McCall. "We came out uninspired, we knew the Raiders were out there waiting for us, we were looking ahead, and it almost came back to bite us. "Victoria worked hard, scouted us and gave us a tough game. Hopefully, this will wake everybody up." After dominating Victoria in back-toback weeks to finish the regular season, the Sun looked stagnant in Sunday's playoff matchup at the Apple Bowl, but still emerged with a 30-20 win. With the exception of a two-touchdown outburst late in the first half, the Sun failed to piece together much consistency on offence. In fact, the Rebels outdistanced the Sun in total yards, 391 to 343, and made the

Sun receiver Steven Shott gets taken down by a Victoria Rebel in Sunday BCFC semifinal Okanagan defence look as vulnerable as it has all season. On both sides of the ball, McCall said the club needs to regain the edge and intensity it displayed on the way to a 9-1 regular season record in the club’s 30th season. "You can't be afraid to get your pants dirty, play with that physicalness, and play tough," he said. "We had little bursts on offence where we were efficient, but not enough. On defence, too many missed tackles and blown assignments. The optimist in you says this is a blessing in disguise. The Raiders will come here and play hard and we'll need to answer that." In the Raiders, the Sun face a foe who has beaten them in the playoffs each of the last four years. But unlike the previous encounters, the Sun is home at the Apple Bowl where they

knocked off Vancouver Island 27-19 back on Aug. 7. Still, even with the hometown audience behind them, quarterback Bobby Davis said the Sun will need to come armed with their best game of the year. "We've been waiting for this all season," said Davis, in his first year as the club's starting pivot. "The guys are hungry, we're going to have an intense week of preparation, and just be ready come out and do it next weekend. It's our biggest game of the season, we'll have to be a lot better mentally than we were against Victoria, and I know we will be." VSS grad Damon Soque, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound linebacker, and Fulton grad Michael Wolsey, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound DL, are with the Sun. Kick off for the Cullen Cup is 1 p.m. Sunday at the Apple Bowl.

Impact roll in Penticton Morning Star Staff

The Sir Winston's Pub Okanagan Impact defeated favoured host Penticton 5-4 (0-0) on penalty kicks in Monday's women's final of the Thanksgiving Classic Soccer Tournament at Kings Park. Keeper Shelinda Morin kept the Impact in the championship game, facing a rested Peach City crew (played just two preliminary matches). The Impact converted all five of their penalty kicks with Myra McEwan, Lauren Harris, Dawn Trossler, the lovely and talented Kris Ponto and Edeen Ramsey scoring after a scoreless 10-minute overtime.

Morin made a fantastic save on the third shot diving hard to her right. "We entered as a Rec team, but there were not enough women's teams to make two sides so all the teams were combined," said Ponto. "We were not considered contenders by the ladies in the beer gardens, that's for sure. What a great surprise." The Impact went 3-0 in roundrobin play, grounding the Kamloops Hansport 4-1 (hat trick by Ramsey), shutting down the 100 Mile House Brakers 5-0 (great goalkeeping by Morin and Julie Hamer) and clipped Prince George Accelerated 1-0 (goal by Harris).

Thanks to a four-letter Sanskrit word, Jeff Thomlinson is helping families in Nepal get the health care they need. Thomlinson is the owner of Trinity Yoga Center, where a fundraiser is taking place Oct. 16 that will help two Vernon women travel to Nepal to volunteer with the Medical Mercy Canada Health Team. “Seva is the spiritual practice of selfless service, or service with no reward, which is very much a yoga tradition,” said Thomlinson. Good friends Susan Wells and Susan Mann are travelling to Nepal next month to volunteer their services. While they are paying their own way, they have been busy fundraising in order to purchase supplies and to help pay for medical personnel at wellness clinics, which would cost families about $4 per visit, an astronomical sum for many Nepalese families. “When we threw the idea of having a fundraiser at the studio, Jeff just ran with it,” said Wells, who recently retired from her longtime position as a therapist in the Infant Development Program at NONA. Yoga for a Cause takes place Saturday with a series of yoga classes by donation, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going towards providing Nepalese families the opportunity to receive health care, thanks to the Medical Mercy Canada (MMC) health team. The studio will donate the space, and teachers are donating their time. MMC is a non-religious, registered Canadian volunteer organization which provides unconditional help to impoverished persons in Ukraine, Nepal, the Thai-Burmese borders, northeastern India/Zowkathar and Srilanka. Since 1991, MMC volunteers have been providing medical assistance, instruction and donated supplies, as well as funds and followup for small-scale building and hygiene projects. Wells and Mann originally had their hearts set on going to Nicaragua. That didn’t work out as planned. But when Mann was sick in bed in April, she happened to hear an interview on CBC Radio with an occupational therapist who had travelled to Nepal. “It turns out that MMC had a team travelling in November, but that it was full,” said Mann, a nurse-practitioner. “So I said, ‘I’ll tell you what I do and see if I fit.’ Then I told her about Susan and NONA and immediately they jumped to have us on the team this year.” This all happened at 8:20 a.m. Figuring Wells would be at her office by 8:30 a.m., Mann left her a voice mail. “I said, ‘we’re in’ and she said ‘my heart is pounding.’” For the sixth consecutive year, Canadian and American volunteers will travel to Nepal to provide dental and medical services through MMC to Nepalese villagers who would otherwise not have access to this basic care. This is part of a six-day health camp that offers free medical and

dental diagnosis and treatments as well as workshops and demonstrations to give the villagers a chance for a better life. This group of medical professionals and laypeople will travel to Lumjung, a remote village northwest of the capital city of Kathmandu. The people of Lumjung face challenges such as unproductive soil, lack of water, and a high illiteracy rate. Local Nepalese doctors and dentists will join volunteers and together they will focus on OB/GYN, pediatrics and children with disabilities. “Villagers will walk for miles to get to the clinics, some for two or three days,” said Mann. “We’ll provide a lot of education about handwashing and toothbrushing and we’ll start breast self-exam teaching.” Meanwhile, as the trip draws closer, Wells said she and Mann are both brimming with excitement at their upcoming adventure. “We both wake up at 3 and 4 a.m., thinking about everything we have to do,” said Wells, laughing.

The yoga fundraiser takes place Saturday and features three separate classes: participants are welcome to just try one, or all three. Compassion in Action runs from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.; Heartful Yoga runs 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.; Sun and Moon Flow runs 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tea will be served at 5 p.m. All classes are by donation, and donations of $20 or more will be issued a tax receipt. “These classes are unique to this event, and experience is not required to take part,” said Thomlinson, who also operates a studio in Kelowna. “We have wonderful, experienced teachers who are prepared to handle teaching at all levels, so we’ll just go with the flow.” For anyone who would like to make a donation to the Nepalese trip, but is unable to attend the fundraiser, donations can be made online at the MMC website at www.medicalmercycanada.org (please indicate the donation is for Nepal Health Camp, November 2010) or by contacting Wells at susanitaj@yahoo.ca

A brief introduction to permaculture Editor’s note: This week, Jana Macnab fills in for Fred Lyall. She would like to thank both Fred and Communities in Bloom Vernon for giving her the opportunity to share this with all of you. eep your eyes open for the term permaculture because you are going to be seeing it a lot. Permaculture was developed in the 1970s by two Australians, Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. Although permaculture has moved in and out of popularity since the ‘70s, with the recent green movement and grass-roots resurgence, permaculture is making a huge comeback! Permaculture is a solutions based method of design which focuses on interactivity, diversity and sustainability to create functioning

K

systems that work with, rather than against nature. Permaculture is not just a gardening technique, in fact it can be applied to any number of systems including, agriculture, business even community development. It is permaculture’s deep-rooted ethics and positive approach that make it such a strong design methodology. Permaculture focuses observation and connection. Through keen observation we begin to identify unexpected interactions within our systems, we are able to identify flaws in our designs and also identify possible solutions. A common problem in the Okanagan is wet winters and dry sum-

mers, so why not design seasonal water capture into your system? One example is the use of rain barrels to capture winFred Lyall ter rain from your roof and store it for use in the dry summer months. Observation also allows us to identify how our system interacts with outside influences. Are we attracting pests and disease to our system or deterring them away from the system? Take lavender for instance, not only is it beautiful but it smells amazing, attracts bees, deters pests and has a number of medicinal uses. By developing our system into overlapping layers we begin to notice how everything within the system serves multiple functions.

IN THE GARDEN

In permaculture we work to create strong systems with multiple chains of defense. Diversity is one way to design protection into our systems so if one element fails, another element is there to step in. Pests, weeds and other unwanted elements are opportunistic; they only attack when the chance presents itself. A diverse system is confusing to pests, a multitude of colours, scents, and predators is discouraging to them, and the pests will often move on to a system that is more familiar or weaker. “It is not the number of diverse things in a design that leads to stability, but the number of beneficial connections between these components.” — Bill Mollison Diversity also reduc-

If spending an evening listening to and laughing about funny stories appeals to you, then the Enderby Toastmasters Club has just the event for you. The club is hosting the Area 33 Humorous Speaking and Table Topics Contest this year, and the public is welcome. “If funny stories aren’t your thing, you might prefer to watch quick-thinking Toastmasters answer a question in one or two minutes, with no prior knowledge of what the subject will be,” said Naomi Fournier, vice-president of public relations for the

club, “and they still make sense.” Area 33 is made up of Armstrong, Enderby, Salmon Arm and Revelstoke Clubs, with representatives from these four clubs challenging each other in this contest. The event takes place tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Enderby Evangelical Chapel’s auditorium. Admission is by $3 minimum donation, and refreshments will be served.

es the need for human influence, the system becomes self-regulated and thus easier to manage and more sustainable. Permaculture looks to nature for design cues and solutions. Like nature, our systems should be sustainable and cyclical and should require little outside influence once established. We look for opportunities to cycle resources back into the system, for instance fall leaf litter can be raked up and used to mulch

Since 2005, more than 200 Fulton Grade 11 Global Education students, under the direction of teacher Murray Sasges, have visited the new Casa Hogar site. They have contributed to many projects such as fence building, construction of an aviary, a garden and construction of water troughs.

The Fuente de Vida (fountain of life) Society of Vernon has continued to provide support to the people of the Cosiguina Peninsula of Nicaragua since 2005. Over the past year, two different teams have visited the region: Hugh Wallis led a team providing clean water filters and solar lighting to the impoverished communities of northwestern Nicaragua. Dr. Bill Charlton and Dr. Chris Cunningham led a small team, which performed medical clinics and donated school supplies in the same region. Both doctors have been there on several occasions since 2005 and feel that the clean water projects have made a positive impact on the health of the local people. Many Vernon groups have visited and volunteered in Nicaragua in the past 10 years. That trend started when ICU nurse Debbie Bachman went with a relief team to Nicaragua in 1999, after Hurricane Mitch caused widespread damage. There, she met Felix and Angelica Almendarez, who had begun taking in orphaned children in their vegetarian restaurant. Over the next few years, with the support of the Vernon Alliance Church and volun-

Government plugging into power meters TOM FLETCHER Black Press

B.C. won’t make the same mistakes as Ontario when it introduces “smart meters” for electricity consumers over the next two years, Energy Minister Bill Bennett says. Interactive power meters that continuously tell each customer how much power is being consumed are supposed to help them save money. The B.C. government has ordered B.C. Hydro to install them across the province by 2012. But after millions of the new meters were installed in Ontario, more than 80 per cent of customers there are paying more for electricity under a new time-of-use rate structure that raises rates for peak uses like suppertime and offers cheap rates for off-peak times. NDP energy critic John Horgan seized on that news and predicted a “disaster” for B.C. if it presses ahead with smart meters. The estimated $1 billion cost of B.C.’s new meters would be better spent on energy retrofits such as efficient heating and insulation, Horgan said. Bennett said that B.C.’s plan isn’t based on using higher rates to get people to run dishwashers or clothes dryers at night. “We’re well aware of what’s going on in Ontario, and the business case for our smart meter program is not based on time-of-use rates,” Bennett said. “We don’t even have time-of-use rates yet in British Columbia, and when we do it’s unlikely that they’ll be mandatory. They’ll probably be voluntary.” People could then choose to take advantage of off-peak power rates or stick with the existing rate structure, which charges a higher rate after a certain monthly consumption has been reached. That rate structure is designed to encourage energy-saving home improvements. Smart meters have other advantages,

Bennett said. They eliminate the need for manual meter readings, and customers

will no longer have to call in to report power outages. Not only will B.C.

Hydro be able to see immediately where the power has gone out, the “smart grid” their

engineers envision will eventually be “self-healing,” rerouting power to blackout areas until line

repairs can be made. Smart meters can also keep track of power generated by a backyard

windmill or solar panels on the roof, deducting the amount generated from the monthly bill.

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