Lavington blaze levels Quonset hut ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Officials continue to investigate a Coldstream fire Thursday that destroyed a Quonset hut containing thousands of dollars worth of equipment. The Lavington department was called to a structure fire shortly before 7 a.m. in the 6900 block of Buchanan Road, and were later joined by members of the Coldstream fire department to help extinguish the blaze. “When the guys from Lavington arrived, it was already a fully involved structure fire,” said Dean Wakefield, fire inspector for Coldstream. “The structure is pretty much a total loss. All that’s left is a cement slab and the remnants of the equipment.” Housed in the hut were a sailboat, a car, a number of garden tractors and a number of tools. As of Thursday morning, Wakefield said the fire did not appear to be suspi-

ure out exactly what happened,” he said. The situation could have been worse had

the Thursday morning wind been blowing a different direction. Located close to

the hut was a barn full of hay. A travel trailer parked beside the barn

had one side melted from the heat of the fire. All people in the

home on the property were accounted for and fine, as were all animals on the property.

Politicians push to abandon restructuring RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Support for Greater Vernon parks restructuring appears to be crumbling. Doubts about the process to split up parks and recreation facilities surfaced during a meeting of the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee Thursday. “I’d like to see the parks review dropped,” said Mike Gavinchuk, BX-Swan Lake director. “What ever we agree to, the next coun-

cils will be fighting and the public will not accept it.” Under restructuring, regional assets have been identified as 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. Vernon and Coldstream have previously indicated that the current model

doesn’t allow for local input over maintenance or planning. However, Gavinchuk believes the best solution is for the partnership to be amended and not to scrap it. “The few problems we have could be adjusted,” he said. Gyula Kiss, Coldstream director, isn’t surprised officials on all sides are questioning restructuring even though a draft agreement has been developed. “Once you start getting financial infor-

mation, people start changing (opinions),” he said. “The whole system is based on a referendum in the 1970s to join forces. It may be a good idea to ask the public if they want it disbanded.” Restructuring could see the recreation complex become the sole responsibility of the City of Vernon, but opinions are starting to shift.

This is a rough sketch of the Sveva Caetani mural that will be painted at 3006 32nd Ave. The design is expected to evolve as artist Michelle Loughery proceeds with the project in downtown Vernon.

Mural honours local arts legend RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Downtown Vernon’s newest mural will trace the life of an internationally acclaimed artist. Painter Sveva Caetani and her family will be commemorated on a mural on the side of the Culos & Co. building at 3006 32nd Avenue. Work is expected to begin Monday and take about six weeks to complete. “Arts and culture are very important to the community,� said Earl Hansen, DVA executive

director, of why Caetani is the subject of the mural. “We’re trying to bring more arts and culture to downtown.� Caetani was born in Italy in 1917 and moved to Vernon with her family in 1921. Between 1978 and 1989, Caetani, who taught in local schools, created a series of 56 paintings that she entitled Racapitulation: A Chronicle of Her Amazing Life. “This work, along with other pieces, has since given her inter-

national acclaim and respect as an artist,� said Ron Candy, Greater Vernon Museum curator. When she died in 1994, Caetani left her home — now the Caetani Cultural Centre — to the City of Vernon to promote arts in the community. The mural project will be led by Michelle Loughery, who is responsible for most of the murals downtown. Support has come from the museum and the Caetani Cultural Centre.

“We are pleased to be teaming up with the arts community,� said Hansen. The City of Vernon has endorsed the mural, and the project cost is $20,000. Hansen believes the heritage murals are important to our community. “They provide an opportunity for our residents to connect to our history. Also, the murals are a draw for visitors,� he said. “They give us something in terms of our identity.�

Taxpayers could be on hook for pool repair RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A significant expense at Lumby’s outdoor pool could make waves for taxpayers. Staff has indicated that $100,000 is needed for a new pool liner. “It’s a lot of money,� said Tracy Williamson, director with the White Valley Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee. “It will be a hard decision to make but the pool is an amazing community asset.� The current liner — a finish which is sprayed on concrete — is about 12 years old. Upwards of

er With ov the s in 35 year , we are an Okanag or you. here f

“We’ve been putting good money after bad.� — Rick Fairbairn $80,000 has been spent repairing it in the last five or six years. “We’ve been putting good money after bad,� said Rick Fairbairn, committee chairman. Holes appeared in the liner within the first week of the pool opening in the spring. “The public complained about the sharp pieces that littered the

pool bottom as the liner began cracking and peeling,� said Amy Dobrowolski, head guard, in a written report. “And staff struggled with vacuuming the pool because the vacuum hose would continuously clog with liner debris.� Because the pool surface is rough and uneven, algae growth also occurred, making the pool

esthetically unattractive. “A new pool liner next year is essential,� said Dobrowolski. The possibility of a new liner will be discussed during 2011 budget deliberations, and while it’s a costly item, Fairbairn doesn’t believe there is much choice. “We have to look at what’s important for the community,� he said. “People use this facility and it provides a lot of recreational activities.� It’s believed that a new liner could have a 20-year warranty, and the committee wants assurances that a liner will meet long-term needs.

“It could be make or break on whether a purchase proceeds,� said Williamson of warranty details. Staff has also suggested other possible expenditures for the coming year, including a tot slide, a water basketball hoop and expanding youth loonie swim to all day Sunday. “The liner needs to come first. We’d love to meet everyone’s wishes but that’s not possible,� said Williamson. White Valley parks and recreation provides services to the Village of Lumby, rural Lumby and Cherryville.

“We’re happy with it remaining as a regional function,� said Jim Garlick, Coldstream director. If Vernon gained control of the complex, the financial contributions from Coldstream and the two electoral areas for operations would be reduced by half because they would not have a vote on decisions. But while he is willing to consider status quo for the recreation complex, Garlick insists there are other areas that have to evolve. “There are some deficiencies we need to address,� he said referring to parks maintenance. “Things that are truly regional make sense to keep regional and things that are local are moving to local.� Wayne Lippert, GVAC chairman and Vernon director, believes reconsideration of restructuring was inevitable. “They understand the costs and liabilities and they may not want to do them alone,� he said. “Right now, it looks like a real possibility that things could stay close to what they are.� The next step may be for the councils from Vernon and Coldstream, as well as the electoral area directors, to meet and discuss parks and recreation.

Vehicles seized for racing Morning Star Staff

Two new drivers got a tough lesson about rules of the road from the RCMP. An RCMP officer witnessed two vehicles racing westbound on Kalamalka Road near Kalavista Drive in Coldstream just before noon Tuesday. “One vehicle had pulled onto the shoulder of the road in an attempt to pass the other,” said Vernon RCMP Sgt. Dave Evans. “The officer estimated they were doing close to twice the posted speed limit of 40 kilometres an hour.” Both drivers, aged 17 and “new” drivers under the graduated licence program in B.C., are also the registered owners of the vehicles, and were issued tickets for speeding. And, under the new Vehicle Impound Provisions of the Motor Vehicle Act, they had their vehicles impounded for seven days for racing. “With a number of vehicles and persons in the area, this incident had the potential to end in tragedy,” said Evans. Two other motorists found out prior to Thanksgiving that travel-

ling too fast is not going to get them anywhere. North Okanagan RCMP handed out two seven-day immediate roadside prohibitions for excessive speed. A 40-year-old man was clocked at going 156 kilometres per hour in a 90-km/h zone at 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 7 near the Whispering Pines café on Highway 97, while a 19-year-old woman was ticketed for going 94 km/h in a 50 km/h zone at 2 a.m. Oct. 8 near the intersection of 32nd Street and 16th Avenue. Both vehicles were going more than 40 km/h over the posted speed limit, thus they were given the sevenday driving prohibitions, part of new rules introduced in September by the provincial government. New driving rules also targeted suspected impaired drivers, and local RCMP issued a pair of three-day driving prohibitions to suspected impaired drivers during the week of Oct. 4 to 11. “Vernon North Okanagan RCMP will continue to enforce traffic laws and utilize new provisions under the Motor Vehicle Act to try and make local roads safer,” said Evans.

Questions arise over symphony request RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra’s pitch for increased funding has hit a bit of a sour note. OSO officials claim the City of Vernon doesn’t contribute any money towards the organization, but Coun. Patrick Nicol insists that isn’t the case. “We have supported it forever,” he said. The North Okanagan Regional District provides $6,043 annually to the symphony, and of that, $3,594 comes from the city. Nicol believes a slight increase in financial support may be possible, but not the $50,000 OSO has requested from the city and the regional district. “It’s all dependent

“We have supported it forever.” — Patrick Nicol on economic times,” he said. “It’s tough times for them and tough times for families out there.” OSO is currently soliciting communities valley-wide for funding after $147,000 in provincial funds were lost last year. A further reduction of $60,000 in gaming revenue is anticipated for 2010/11. “We need to strengthen our ties with local municipalities and businesses,” said Scott Wilson, OSO general manager. “We want to get to an

economic model where we’re not dependent on gaming money.” Symphony officials state that the organization has a direct benefit to the local economy because it generates about $250,000 in ticket sales at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre a year. “We have continuously filled the VPAC hall,” said Rose Thompson, music director. “We have a great following in Vernon and the North Okanagan.” Also at the perform-

ing arts centre, OSO pays rent for the facility and fees related to lighting, sound enhancement, technicians and ushers. About $11,000 was spent on Ticket Seller activities last year. “There is also an influx of consumer cash into the economy,” said Wilson, referring to the

fact that many people go out for dinner before a concert. It is also pointed out that more than half of the symphony’s core musicians live in the Vernon area and their wages go back into the economy. Presently, Kelowna provides $50,000 a year to OSO while $9,000

comes from Penticton. Nicol doesn’t believe Vernon, which covers about 70 per cent of any NORD contribution based on population, should be put on the same level as Kelowna. “We’re one-sixth the size so you’re not going to get there,” he said of the $50,000 request. The other NORD

communities that provide funding to OSO are Coldstream, Lumby, BX-Swan Lake, BX-Silver Star, rural Lumby and rural Enderby. The OSO has also presented its case to Coldstream, which will consider the request after reviewing its financial situation.

REGIONAL DISTRICT OF NORTH OKANAGAN

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.

DISTRICT OF COLDSTREAM NOTICE TO RESIDENTS In 2008 the District of Coldstream initiated the Coldstream Sustainability Initiative planning process. The Sustainability Initiative is fully funded from a federal program called Integrated Community Sustainability Planning (ICSP). Phase three, of the five phase process, is to select an area that would undergo a sustainability review case study. District Council selected the Central Coldstream area for this review. A survey has been prepared to gather feedback from the community as to potential development and the future services in this area. All residents of Coldstream are encouraged to complete the survey and submit to the District office. The survey, and the Draft Neighbourhood Plan, can be found on the District’s website at www.districtofcoldstream. ca, or at the Coldstream Municipal Hall. Surveys are to be submitted no later than Friday October 22, 2010. Trevor Seibel, CA Director of Financial Administration

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

• 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

Worth the wait

T

hey say good things come to those who wait. In my case, that good thing was a postponed trip to Africa. I wrote a column about five months ago – “The Road Not Traveled” – about how my adventure to the dark continent was brought to a screeching halt when that pesky volcano in Iceland erupted the day before I was supposed to leave. Eyjafjallajokull (that is its name, which I’m pretty sure means “mountain of inconvenient timing” in Icelandic) shut down the Graeme Corbett entire Western European airspace, which included my connecting flight through Heathrow in London. Well, I finally made the trip, having just returned from nearly three weeks in Africa, working with a handful of international development through sport (IDS) programs sponsored by Commonwealth Games Canada in Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho. It is an experience I will forever cherish as I saw a side of Africa many tourists don’t really touch upon. I got to know the kids (many from impoverished backgrounds) who participate in the programs, learning valuable life skills, such as HIV/AIDS awareness, through sport and other social activities. For me, the beauty of these grassroots programs is they are largely run by young African volunteers, many of who started as participants and now want to give something back by becoming leaders in their community. Part of my role was to speak with the participants and leaders and tell their stories of how IDS changed their lives. Some of the kids, the boys in particular, appeared to be destined for a life of crime, running with street gangs in search of a way to make a buck. Some had already been jailed for things like armed robbery and assault before changing their lives in the programs. My one regret on this trip was I didn’t have

much downtime to really have a look around and see some of the countless highlights Africa has to offer. With Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport as the hub of air transport in southern Africa, my itinerary included 14 mind-numbing flights in 18 days. If I wasn’t working, I was cruising at 35,000 feet. In particular, I would have loved to have seen the “big five” – leopard, Cape Buffalo, elephant, lion and rhinoceros. As I joked on Facebook, my “big three” consisted of goats, chickens and a gecko. I did eventually view some impala, bushbuck, warthogs and a crocodile at the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary in Swaziland, but we didn’t have time to take a guided tour where lay the best wildlife spectating. Instead, we settled for a delicious braai (Afrikaans for barbecue) of beef, chicken and pork, accompanied, as always, by pap (traditional porridge made from ground maize) at the sanctuary camp. Which made me realize just how much Africans like their meat. My very first experience in Africa was a trip to Joe’s Beerhouse, a famous bar/restaurant in Windhoek, Namibia, where I sampled a skewer of tantalizing game – kudu, ostrich and crocodile to name a few. Another time, my hosts took me to a braai in the Katatura Township in Windhoek. There, a line of vendors stood roasting great long strips of beef over open grills. The great thing was you could sample a piece before committing to buy more. If the beef was tough or wasn’t flavourful, you would go to the next guy. We stood there in a dusty, crowded courtyard, using our fingers to pile back some of the best beef I have tasted, right off the grill. Now that I’m back, I would like to thank my editor, Glenn Mitchell, for telepathically channelling my NFL picks for the three weeks while I was away. You don’t want to miss this week’s edition of our weekly video picks (visit www.vernonmorningstar.com) to see if crime reporter Roger Knox can indeed coax a sound out of the vuvuzela I brought him back from Africa.

Put up, shut up or you’re out. This would seem to be the attitude of NDP leader Carole James, who abruptly turfed Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson from the party caucus over criticisms published in his blog relating to her speech at the recent Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. Of James, Simpson wrote the Opposition leader had “little concrete to offer the delegates other than a commitment to be more consultative…” Not exactly scathing dissent, but Simpson seems to have been stewing over his party’s leadership for some time. This was evident the day after his expulsion, when he told the press, “it’s the worst kept secret in B.C. that the NDP has a leadership challenge.” If dismissing Simpson was intended to keep the rest of the party in silent submission, it was truly done in vain. For now the spotlight is on James herself, who for some time has been riding the fervour behind the Fight HST campaign while actually offering little to voters to grasp onto. Former NDP cabinet minister, the outspoken Corky Evans, summarized the situation perfectly commenting, “Sometimes, people say things that everybody knows, and you feel a vast sense of relief because somebody has finally said it out loud.” Sorry Carole James, the secret has been out for a while now. For, believe it or not, voters actually respond well to elected representatives who speak openly and within reason, unrestrained by party line. It builds a sense of trust between electorate and politician – something that goes a lot further than a fragile ego averse to meaningful criticism. — Salmon Arm Observer

Major issues being ignored

T

he Conservatives just issued their Economic Action Plan for Canada which sounds good but is just another ploy to get elected (they've had decades to implement it but haven't) as the real problems in society are ignored. This is because Conservatives represent the rich and powerful, who are against policies "for the people." So their method of getting elected, as shown in this latest pamphlet, is to focus on relatively minor problems and making promises which they almost always fail to keep. The real beliefs and agenda aren't publicized but are suppressed as they are all contrary to a democratic and civilized society. Their programs are often very trivial in the big picture — today focusing on refugees, minority and religious rights, etc., but ignoring the major issues which affect the standard of living of most Canadians. For example, Conservatives traditionally advocate: ■ Corporatist policies of free trade which makes it impossible for businesses and workers to survive as they have to compete with wage slaves abroad. ■ Small government which hobbles the state's ability to fund public and social ser-

BUS BLUES I am very concerned about the City of Vernon's decision to move the transit terminal from its present location across from the downtown Safeway to farther downtown (31st Avenue, between 30th and 31st Streets). There are five "seniors only" apartment buildings, plus condominiums, within three blocks of the present location. Taking the bus is the only means of transport for these residents. It would be a real hardship for them to walk another five blocks, even in good weather, never mind how impossible it will be in winter with snow and ice to add to the distance. A lot of seniors use transit to come downtown to attend Schubert Centre and to attend to other commitments. They, too, will be inconvenienced. These people provide a high percentage of the ridership on transit. It is unconscionable that the City of Vernon would make such a move. Perhaps the well-being of our

vices wanted by the people. This makes people fend for themselves in a law-of-thejungle economic and social system in which people die unnecessarily due to the belief that the role of government is solely of law, order and a good climate for business. People are not considered, but are ignored. ■ Privatization of everything — including public utilities (re: BC Gas); denial of BC Hydro expansion (in favour of private power development); sell-off of public corporations (Via Rail, CN, BC Rail, Petro-Canada) and event private rather than public pensions (which are guaranteed — except under Conservative rule). ■ Cuts in programs which benefit the

senior residents does not compare to downtown parking. The first announcement of this change appeared in The Morning Star on Sept. 29. The decision was made without any notice to bus riders. Why? Elizabeth Briggs and Jean Kuchel RIVER RULES We are a family of four, and this past summer, the new Transport Canada rules regarding water safety have caused us to scuttle at least one proposed float on the Shuswap River at Enderby. We've researched the rules, and have discussed it as a family, but we do not own any life-jackets (we see them as necessities only for those fortunate enough to own boats), and prior to a few weeks ago, we did not own any whistles. Our children are good swimmers, as are we, and we've decided that if we, or one of our children, were to drown while participating

people. This includes gutting the social infrastructure because it increases taxes and gives the common people some equality and dignity. Conservatives state that "government has no business being in business" (so that all profits will go to the business sector — particularly oil profits). They believe in increased taxes on the common people (sales taxes such as the HST) instead of progressive taxation (but not on corporations or the wealthy); in cutbacks to home-care facilities, closing or privatizing hospitals (re: Vernon's extension with private partners), public schools (for charter schools) and cuts in wages including no raising of the minimum wage.

in a float, we would hold our politicians blameless. We will take responsibility for our own safety, and the safety of our children. In the past we have taken precautions, and will continue to do so. We'd even be willing to put all this in writing, sign it, and carry it with us in a water-tight sandwich bag. We believe it is simply unreasonable to face the threat of a fine, because some official doesn't believe we're capable of being responsible using any method other than the prescribed method. It's not entirely the politicians and law-maker's fault, though. Often we cry that nothing changes until someone dies. The unfortunate corollary is that when someone dies, we expect someone to do something about it. When that death was preventable only by the person who died, or maybe not even preventable at all, the only possible public action is a new law, but the new laws don't

■ Abolishing any policies which benefit the people (which were implemented in order to get elected) as they are regarded as socialist. Conservatives (Liberal in B.C.) scream about big government which is causing our huge deficits when public funds are allocated humanely, but ignoring the spending on wasteful and destructive (and antiChristian) military spending. They give billions in grants and bail-outs to the corporations which are failing or are in trouble. They support U.S. wars and violations of international law (when it's in their interest). In Canada, they "Support Our Troops" even when it's criminal (re: the U.S. wars against Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran soon). This means increased military spending above the $18 billion now, but also in security costs estimated at $7 billion annually to prevent retaliation as in the case of 9-11. The worst part is that it means killing and maiming people all over the world for corporate interests while depriving citizens of needed social programs and a decent standard of living. J.J. Rousso

prevent anything unless the law is followed by those people most at risk. However, the general effect of these new "self-protection laws" is to inconvenience many in an effort to protect the few, and to give otherwise law-abiding families reasons to consider breaking the law. We have seriously considered it. Daniel Bragg ROAD WORK When is a convenience store not a convenience store? The store at 2409 - 34th Street had been made of practically no use to local pedestrian and road traffic due to the lengthy road construction in the area. People who live south and west of the Esso station, Tiki Village, Upper Room Mission and Super Store have endured detours as well as huge disruption of their lives due to this highway project. Can't the City of Vernon do something about this? Jean Sweet, Commonage resident

Travis Anderson (left)) and RCMP Const. Kathy Szoboticsanec share a laugh as they reminisce about the RCMP Jean Minguy Memorial Youth Academy. “After taking this, the academy showed me stuff I needed to do in terms of self-discipline and self-motivation,” said Anderson. “I was 17 years old, hanging out and doing nothing. If I was going to do this I needed to be serious about it. “It was such an awesome week, I’d recommend it to anybody.” Kathy Szoboticsanec is the Vernon RCMP school liaison officer in charge of organizing the Minguy Memorial Youth Academy. She has seen plenty of recruits like Anderson. “Even if it’s not policing, the academy gives them direction to another career path,” said Szoboticsanec, a 19-year police officer

who would have loved to have had the opportunity to attend an academy like the Minguy Memorial when she was in high school. “Some say ‘I know this is what I want to do’ and get a sense of focus. Some see policing as just being in a police car or on the street. They have no idea of all the different career options or choices. “There are lots of things you can do within the organization. People want to go into the investigative section, polygraph ERT (Emergency Response Team), really specialized sections. There’s a lot of time commitment and studying, and a lot of work, but it’s so rewarding.”

No matter how tough the challenge...

The 2010 academy drew 48 students, including some from the Kamloops school district for the first time. Szoboticsanec is hoping to expand those numbers this year. The academy is open to all Grade 11 and 12 students, and information on the 2011 RCMP Jean Minguy Memorial Youth Academy can be found on the Vernon and North OkanaganShuswap school district websites.

Like a lot of readyto-graduate high school students, Travis Anderson was unsure of what to do in the future. Thanks to a friend’s recommendation, Anderson is now contemplating a career in law enforcement, and helping to ratify his choice was a week spent at the RCMP Jean Minguy Memorial Youth Academy in Vernon. “I had thought about looking into policing as a career, then a friend told me about this academy that he went to, I joined and got in,” said Anderson, now 18, who graduated from Kalamalka Secondary School in June. “It was awesome, one of the craziest weeks of my life. I loved it.” The academy simulates the RCMP training depot in Vernon. Grade 11 and 12 students from throughout the Okanagan and Thompson regions spend a week at the Vernon Army Camp learning the basics of policing. And that includes some early morning hours, something Anderson – and many of his fellow cadets – are not used to. “We’d get up at 4 or 4:30 for inspection, and you’d have to make your bed, which I don’t regularly do then or now,” laughed Anderson, a Canadian Tire employee for the past three years. Besides learning how to make beds, cadets are given demonstrations on different aspects of police work. All of the instructors are current members of the RCMP, some being former academy attendees.

Reward to catch assailants multiplies Morning Star Staff

Incentive has doubled to catch and convict the suspects who brutally beat a Lumby trucker recently. The Canadian Trucking Alliance has joined the B.C. Trucking Association’s campaign to bring the assailants of Good Samaritan truck driver Alex Fraser to justice. CTA has donated an additional $10,000 to the reward for apprehension and conviction of the “evil thugs.” With BCTA’s $10,000 reward, that puts the bounty to $20,000. “The evil thugs who participated in what clearly appears to be a pre-mediated attack on the first truck driver to stop to help must be found and held accountable for such a brutal act,” said David Bradley, CEO of the Alliance. Fraser, 67, was beaten and left for dead after he

“Truckers are still considered by many to be the knights of the road.” — David Bradley stopped to offer assistance to what he thought was a stranded motorist on the side of the Yellowhead Highway Sept. 24. The 45-year veteran of the trucking industry required major reconstructive surgery to repair his face and eye socket and has been so traumatized he has decided to leave the industry. The CTA wants to let all truck drivers know that their personal safety is of paramount concern. “Truckers are still considered by many to be the knights of the road,” said Bradley. “Despite their busy schedules many are still willing to stop

to help a motorist in distress. Clearly, while truck drivers should always exercise caution, what happened to Mr. Fraser will make them nervous about doing so in the future, and this would be a shame. “The sooner the criminals can be apprehended and punished the better for everyone.” Fraser’s unfortunate incident has also prompted the BCTA and other organizations to raise funds for him and his wife – now confined to one income and struggling to pay off credit cards and debt. Locally, the Coldstream Coffee

House at the Women’s Institute will be donating proceeds from a 50/50 draw this Saturday to Fraser. Another local event, last Saturday’s Thanksgiving Turkey Trot at the Elks Hall, raised close to $400 for Fraser.

The Forest Practices Board will audit how well forest and range practices in the Vernon Creek and Oyama Creek community watersheds are protecting water quality, beginning Monday. The forest practices of Tolko Industries, B.C. Timber Sales and the Ministry of Forests’ small scale salvage program, as well as range practices of three range tenure holders, will be examined. The watersheds are located next to each other on the east side of Okanagan Lake, south of Vernon, and supply drinking water to the communities of Oyama and Winfield. The two main objectives of this audit are to

The Forest Practices Board is B.C.’s independent watchdog for forest and range practices, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the public and

News Search for missing man ongoing CHERYL WIERDA Black Press

Nearly two months have passed since an Australian native living in Kelowna vanished from the Kootenays, and police and his family are continuing to search for him. Owen Kiernan Rooney, 24, was last seen the evening of Aug. 14 sitting on a picnic table outside the Grand Forks Hospital. “Since Owen was reported missing back in mid August, the Grand Forks RCMP have spoken to several individuals who have assisted in confirming a time line of Owen Rooney’s activities and whereOwen Rooney abouts up to the sequence point of his being at the Grand Forks Hospital on August 14th,� said Corp. Dan Moskaluk. “We do know that Owen Rooney left the hospital, leaving behind a backpack which contained clothing and his cell phone. Rooney’s wallet and ID papers were not amongst the items left behind and have not been located or turned in as found.� It has been previously reported that Rooney was at a music festival near Salmo in the days before he disappeared and had missed his ride back to Kelowna. His mother Sharron Rooney said that Owen somehow found his way from Castlegar to Christina Lake, looking for some friends, and was assaulted at the lake. He was picked up by a police officer near Christina Lake while hitchhiking, and received a ride from the officer to Grand Forks. The officer noticed Rooney had bruises on his face and suggested he get it checked out, which Rooney apparently did. He spent a night at the Grand Forks hospital before vanishing. Rooney’s family met with the members of the hospital staff last week and say it was informative. 10th Annual Armstrong/Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce

“The information we’re getting now is very important as to his state of mind. Where would he go, where could he go and there is a suspicion that somebody picked him up,� explained Sharron Rooney. After talking to one of the staff at the hospital, Sharron Rooney says that Owen was acting abnormally and paranoid. Police also say they, along with the Grand Forks Search and Rescue, conducted a second search for Rooney at the end of September, and didn’t find any sign of him or his belongings. “RCMP inquiries have included all businesses and community agencies throughout the Kootenay and southern B.C. area along Highway 3 and Highway 33 and into Kelowna,� said Moskaluk. Rooney is described as standing 5-foot-9 tall and weighing 160 pounds. At the time of his disappearance, he had very short brown hair and was wearing a dark T-shirt and three-quarter length shorts. The RCMP are asking the general public to take note of the posters of Owen Rooney that have been distributed and posted in various communities and are requesting that anyone who may have seen Rooney to contact the Grand Forks Office at 250442-8288, their local police services or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477. – with files from Karl Yu, Grand Forks Gazette

News Couple puts health on tap in Haiti Morning Star Staff

Chris and Leslie Rolling have been working in Haiti with Clean Water for Haiti for two-and-a-half years and seeing the changes the Biosand filters mean for people. While the earthquake last winter has set things back, they are determined to continue helping to supply clean water as the country rebuilds. The Rollings and a staff of Haitians build the concrete boxes using sand to filter water and install and help people learn how to maintain them. “This is absolutely life changing for families when they get the filter,” said Leslie Rolling. “Many of them have been getting water for drinking and washing from ditches and canals that are very dirty. There is a lot of water-borne disease and people are spending a lot of their small incomes on that. Once they have clean water, everyone’s health improves. The children can go to school and the parents can work. The families are always excited when they can get a filter.” The Biosand filters, which cost about $50 to manufacture and install are sold to the families for $5, and rely on donations to make up the rest of

BRA CLINIC

Only rate cut can save HST

T

oday I reveal the B.C. government’s strategy to do the apparently impossible and win next year’s referendum on the harmonized sales tax. My conclusion is based on observation and deductive reasoning, rather than imaginary leaks from “reliable sources� as anti-HST crusader Bill Vander Zalm recently conjured up. In case you missed Zalm’s latest vision, he declared it in the wee hours before Premier Gordon Campbell gave a speech to local government leaders in Whistler. He predicted Campbell would announce he has Tom Fletcher capitulated to one of Zalm’s many demands and will move up the date of the referendum. Nothing of the sort happened, or will happen. The referendum will take place as specified by legislation on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011 and we will all pay the 12 per cent HST at least until then. But Zalm’s other prediction, that a rate cut is coming, will eventually come true. (As one of my faithful readers reminded me, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.) One hint of this emerging B.C. Liberal scheme occurred in mid-September. Doing a live interview on Global TV, Campbell mentioned that he is planning a major address to B.C. residents on the HST and the referendum. This means a televised fireside chat, which implies some kind of major announcement. As I write this, no date has been revealed for the proposed TV address. Finance Minister Colin Hansen provided another hint in his latest update on the province’s finances. The finance ministry is still projecting deficits until 2013, but the corporate tax revenues that dropped so dramatically in last year’s financial meltdown are now projected to improve considerably by then. Based on that, Hansen could have steered the province back into the black sooner, but instead he has carved out $2.1 billion of anticipated revenue that is not yet committed to pay for debt or services. “That $2.1 billion in additional revenue could be available for a variety of things, and I think that’s part of what government is looking for feedback on,� Hansen said.

B.C. VIEWS

New!

It could be used to pay down debt, spent on the ever-expanding health care demand, or on “tax relief � of some sort. You might remember when Prime Minister Stephen Harper rolled back the GST from seven to six and then five per cent. Like the price chopper at Wal-Mart, Harper whipped out signs with the new rate emblazoned in big blue numbers. This first appeared on the national news, and was then repeated in campaign ads. Campbell and Hansen have 11 months to execute a similar strategy. B.C.’s HST contract with Ottawa requires the province to keep the rate at 12 per cent until July 1, 2012, after which time the seven per cent provincial share can be changed. But as Hansen indicated, they could announce a rate cut any time they want. Some time before the referendum would be useful. Also yet to be determined is the wording of the referendum question. Elections BC officials have to approve it, but the cabinet will craft the wording. Once the rate cut is promised, the referendum could then offer voters a choice. Keep the HST and see the rate go down in nine months, or vote to scrap it and see the old provincial sales tax come back at seven per cent. Without a rate cut, what would be the incentive for you to take time out of a sunny September Saturday to go down and vote for the HST? With the promise of a rate cut, the HST has a chance of surviving. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com.

Off-ice issues lead to Trail shake up

GRAEME CORBETT GUY BERTRAND

Morning Star Staff

It was no surprise when John Knisley and Mike Zalewski joined the Vernon Vipers as a package deal. The two upstate New Yorkers have pretty much been inseparable for the past six years, starting when they became minor hockey teammates in Syracuse, a city of 150,000, known as the educational hub of central New York. They then joined a Midget travel team for a couple seasons before playing last year with the Syracuse Stars of the Eastern Junior Hockey League. Their reasons for coming to the B.C. Hockey League are simple – to play as high a calibre of Junior A hockey as possible. Even if it means living 4,300 kilometres from home. “A lot of time you have to leave home to take the next step because the junior hockey isn’t as good as maybe the USHL or out here in the BCHL,” said Zalewski, an eighteen-year-old New Hartford product (one hour east of Syracuse). Having Knisley on board played a huge part in Zalewski’s decision to join the Vipers. “Coming out here alone is a tough thing to do. Either way I wanted to come out here, but him being on board definitely helped. Right away you know your roommate, you know who you’re living with.” Added Knisley: “It’s a long way from home and at a young age it’s hard to leave, but knowing I’m coming out here with a buddy... made things a little easier.” Knisley, who already has an NCAA Division 1 scholarship with Cornell Big Red, believes living away from home will only help him prepare for university life.

Viper forwards Mike Zalewski (left) and John Knisley take a breather during practice Wednesday at Wesbild Centre. The Vipers visit Trail tonight at Cominco Arena, and host the Smokies Saturday at Wesbild. “A lot of kids go to college and it’s all just thrown at them right there and they’re kind of oblivious to it. We kind of have an advantage because we get an extra year to prepare and do all that time management and juggle everything in our daily schedule without our parents around.” With a quarter of the season gone, Vipers’ head coach Mark Ferner feels the New York duo has shown a rapid adjustment to life in the BCHL after 14 games. Knisley has posted 4-610 and Zalewski has 3-5-8. With chemistry already built in, it was a no-brainer for the Viper bench boss to have Knisley centre a line with Zalewski and rookie Aaron Hadley. “They had been close, playing together growing up, so they came as a package,” said Ferner. “They’re smart hockey play-

ers – they just have to be told once and they get it.” Standing just 5-foot-8, Knisley is the shortest player on the team, relying on quick feet and sound hockey sense to generate his chances. In contrast, Zalewski is 6-foot-2, 200 pounds and is able to crash the corners to create turnovers with a punishing forecheck. Yet, Zalewski warned it would be a mistake to dismiss the baby-faced Knisley’s physical presence. “He’s kind of always been the smaller guy, but he still plays hard and he’s always hit hard his whole life,” grinned Zalewski. Despite having New York zip codes, neither one particularly cares for the Rangers or Islanders. Knisley grew up in Pittsford (near Rochester and 90 minutes west of Buffalo) and is a huge Sabres fan. He lists Buffalo native Patrick Kaleta as his favourite Sabre. “He’s a buddy from home, we just love him,” smiled Knisley, who noted Rochester’s

Brian Gionta is his favourite NHLer. Zalewski, meanwhile, didn’t have to look far to find hockey games growing up. The second-youngest of five hockeycrazy siblings, he spent a lot of time watching oldest brother Steve play ECAC hockey with the Clarkson University Golden Knights. Steve, a fifth-round draft pick (153rd overall) of the San Jose Sharks, is now with the Worcester Sharks (AHL affiliate). His other brother, Rich, played last season with the Pensacola Ice Flyers of the Southern Professional Hockey League, and his older sister, Erin, plays field hockey at Geneseo State University. He also has a little sister coming up the hockey ranks. “All of us were playing hockey at one point, so my parents had a big task when we were growing up, and I’m really thankful for what they did for me. They gave me a lot of opportunities,” said Zalewksi.

TRAIL – Looking to shake off a couple of recent meltdowns, the Smoke Eaters have shaken things up as they begin a home-and-home BCHL series with the Vernon Vipers tonight at Cominco Arena. Head coach Jim Ingram dealt all-star defenceman Graeme Strukoff to the Victoria Grizzlies in exchange for defenceman Jake Baker, forward Wesley Myron and future considerations on Wednesday. Ingram also released 19-year-old forward Steve Oursov. Although he refused to go into detail, Ingram said the moves were more with “off-ice issues,” rather than the players’ performance on the ice. “A big word for us is accountability,” said Ingram. “There’s some guys that have to be held accountable for stuff and we may win this weekend or we may lose but at the end of the day this is about making this team better.” Ingram thinks he has achieved that goal in the deal that brings the six-foot-six Baker to Trail. The 19-year-old Port Moody native, who is expected to be in the lineup tonight, already has a scholarship to Northern Michigan University in hand for next year. Baker began his BCHL career in Merritt in the 2008-09 season and moved from Merritt to Nanaimo to Victoria last season. He was named captain of the Grizzlies this season and had three assists and eight penalty minutes in 11 games. “He’s a great defenceman,” said Ingram. “We feel we more than covered, for this year, the absence of Strukoff. They’re very comparable players. The unfortunate part is Baker is gone next year to Northern Michigan.” Myron, an 18-year-old Victoria native, has refused to report to the Smokies and Ingram said another deal is in the works to move his rights. The Smokies are also trying to regain their footing after their losing streak stretched to three games following Saturday’s debacle against the Penticton Vees on home ice. Trail blew a 3-1 lead in the final minutes and lost 4-3 in overtime. “That was the worst loss I’ve ever been a part of,” admitted Trail’s Scott Jacklin. “Now we’ve got to get our fans back.” The Smokies won the only contest between the two teams this season, a thrilling 3-2 overtime win at Cominco to open October. The Snakes (7-4-1-2) host the Smokies (8-5-0-1) Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. Meanwhile, Victoria continued its own shake up by sending defencemen Brett Kolins and Scott Milnthorp to Merritt for 20-year-old forward Dustin Johnson.

Seaton Sonics' quarterback Chad Woodhead finds himself unprotected against a swarm of VSS Panthers in junior varsity football play Wednesday at MacDonald Park.

Panthers Mess up Sonics Morning Star Staff

Ryan Messer carried bodies on his back, shoulders and stomach all game Wednesday afternoon at MacDonald Park. The big Grade 10 runningback shook them off, rambling 320 yards on 20 carries for five touchdowns as the VSS Panthers stopped the Seaton Sonics 60-20 in junior varsity high school football action. Messer's longest TD runs were from 65 and 48 yards in a game the Panthers led 46-20 at the half. Runningback Thomas Pool scored twice for the Sonics. VSS quarterback Matt Forsyth hit Colton Klein with an eight-yard touchdown pass to jumpstart the Cats' offence. Forsyth ran in the two-point convert and later scrambled 40 yards for a score. He was 8-for-12 passing. “Matt Forsyth had his best day as a quarterback," said Panther head coach Sean Smith. "He ran well and did a great job taking what the defence gave us. Obviously, Messer had a huge day as well rushing for

over 300 yards and five touchdowns. He’s developed a good stiff-arm which sprung him free a couple of times.” Klein was the Panthers' top receiver with five catches for 65 yards. He caught one pass from Travis Barker and another from Forsyth for two-point conversions. Barker scored an 80-yard touchdown on a kickoff return early in the second quarter. Forsyth also hit Messer with a pair of two-point convert aerials. “Our offensive line had a great game today," said Smith. "Seaton brought lots of pressure up the middle all day and our interior line held their own in pass protection and created some big holes in the run game. “Seaton has a couple of good wideouts which created matchup problems for us defensively. However, we were lucky to limit their big plays and kept their run game in check.” Next up for the Panthers is a game next Thursday in Kamloops versus the Valleyview Vikings.

Lumby Stars settle for tie in seesaw battle Morning Star Staff

The Lumby Stars tied the North Okanagan Knights 4-4 in North Okanagan Midget Super Hockey League exhibition play Sunday at Pat Duke Memorial Arena. Wyatt Warnes started things off with a goal late in the first period for Lumby. The Knights answered, scoring twice in the second period, and then increased their lead with another goal halfway through the third. Lumby then scored two in less than a minute;

Kyle Weston assisted by Chris Castellarin and Cory Hug, and Hug assisted by Kyle Weston and Calvin Tourand, to equalize. Jagger Ward put the Stars back in the lead with two minutes left in the game, but the Knights salvaged the draw by scoring with 43 seconds remaining. Scoring for the Knights were Ian Bulmer, Ryan Carlsen, Layton Theodore, and Dustin Copeland with assists from Josh Ell, Dylan Theodore, Dylan Preece, Dayton Proctor, and Austin Prevost.

Morning Star Staff

Two days after pocketing $8,750 in the Westcoast Curling Classic in New Westminster, Jim Cotter earned another $50 by icing Kalynn Park 7-3 in Baron Insurance Super League action Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club. Cotter (Woodland Equipment) swiped a deuce in the first end against Park, who was subbing for Jeff Richard (B.C. Trailer). Park, the daughter of veteran Winnipeg curler Kevin Park, drew even in the second with a tough out-turn draw. The Cotter front end, led by hard-sweeping Jason Wizniak, made some key shots in the third to set up a good end. When Park wrecked on her last shot, Cotter recorded a draw to the eight foot for three. Cotter then stole a single in the fourth when Par's tap back just rolled out of the four foot. B.C. Trailer bounced back in the fifth when Park reeled off a come-around tap back for a point. Cotter's final draw in six fell short but the single point sent the teams to the lounge. In a battle of Olympic ice makers, club manager Dave Merklinger (Jet Ice) brushed back his assistant Wayne Laface

(Inspiration Homes) 5-3. Merklinger got Laface in trouble in a few tight ends but Laface somehow bailed out and scored a single in the fifth to make it 2-2. Merklinger swiped one in four after Laface came up short. The Jet Ice crew, sparked by some young hitters, managed to keep things clean with some doubles to stay in front of the home builders. Brad Kuhn (North Enderby Timber) improved to 3-0 with a 7-2 victory over Jenn Gerow (Gateway). Kuhn started with a steal of one in the first end but Gerow answered back in two with an angle raise for one. Kuhn junked things up in three and then cracked a fiveender to ice the game early. TJ Perepolkin (Canaccord Capital) held on for a wild 9-8 win over Blake Kimura (Village Green Hotel). After building an 8-1 lead, the Village Green boys pulled a gold mine rescue-like miracle by scoring five in five to keep the game alive. They added two more in the seventh to make things interesting coming home. Ty Griffith (Nufloors) outlasted Jon

Gardner (Lifestyles) 8-6, scoring five in the opening end en route to victory. ■ Kevin Martin captured his fifth Westcoast Curling Classic title in his sixth final by downing the reigning world champion and fellow Edmontonian Kevin Koe 6-4 Monday in New Westminster. Martin pocketed $20,000, while Koe, who won the Twin Anchors Houseboats Classic two weeks ago in Vernon, settled on $12,500. "It's bragging rights at the club for the next couple of weeks, until the next one," smiled Martin, in an interview with Black Press Sports. In the quarterfinals, Martin downed Brock Virtue of Calgary 6-4 and then took out Cotter 6-3 in the semifinals. Koe romped past Manitoba's Mike McEwen 8-2 in the quarters and perennial Saskatchewan champion Pat Simmons 6-4 in the semis. Cotter pocketed $8,750. Bob Ursel, who is sidelined with a knee injury, was replaced with the Cotter rink at third by New Westminster's Ken Maskiewich. Kevin Folk and Rick Sawatzky of Kelowna are the regular front end with Cotter.

Bruins maul Knights in double-digit blowout Morning Star Staff

It was blowout night in the Interior Hockey League Wednesday night at Wesbild Centre. Rhett Ballard, Duane Dennis and Chris Church each provided hat tricks as M&K Ready Mix Bruins ambushed Kal Tire Knights 12-3 in the David Letterman late game. Earlier, Mike Fochler and Justin Mann each supplied 2+1 as the Aquatico Bay Bar & Grill Sharks slammed the Bluejay Concrete Hornets 9-1. The Bruins also got four assists apiece

from Ballard and Dennis as they improved to 2-1. Mike Tew added 1+6, while Terry Lowe pocketed 1+3 and Jason Kasper also scored in front of Al Lidstone (24 saves). Kyle Engelmyer had 1+2 to lead the 0-4 Knights, who also got goals from Cody Watson and Ryan Mickoluk. The Sharks also went to 2-1 by bouncing the Buzz. Ryan Robertson and Vernon Miskosky each earned 1+2, while other goals came from Sam Pantaleo, Jesse Duss and Pearse Wylie. Dallas Wolpert, Jarrett McNeal and Justin Glinsbockel each netted two helpers in support of Jordan

Vallance (18 saves). Jeff Kuzniar went around a defender and then found top shelf over goalie Blair Miller's glove, with 80 seconds left, as the Silver Star Hitmen clipped the Re/Max Rangers 7-6 Tuesday night at Civic Arena. Ballard, with 2+2, Waylon Folliott, with two goals, and singles from Garth Gartner and Todd Ferguson, completed the 3-0 Hitmen scoring. Dave Penner supplied 3+1 for the 2-1 Rangers, who got 1+4 from Tom Ouchi and other goals from Steve Vallier and Brad Kowalski.

Maroons gunning to be Best in the West Morning Star Staff

The Fulton Maroons open the Kelowna Owls Best of the West Volleyball Tournament today with preliminary play at Dr. Knox School. The Maroons, who won the bronze medal at the 44-team UBCO senior girls tourney last weekend, are in a pool with the Kalamalka Lakers, Pen-Hi Lakers and the Pacific Academy Breakers of Surrey. Fulton defeated Okanagan Mission Huskies 3-0 (25-4, 25-5, 25-6) in league action Tuesday night. The Maroons, who are undefeated at 4-0, got solid outings from Grade 11 players Kelli Watson, Colby Richter, Christie Allen and Laure Rozka, who all started every game. The Owls defeated the Jasper Place

Rebels of Edmonton in an all-AAAA final at UBCO. Fulton, a AAA school, placed second in power pool play, grounding Langley AA 2-0 (25-19, 25-21), icing Jasper Place 2-1 (19-25, 25-22, 15-8) and falling 2-1 (22-25, 27-25, 18-16) to the Owls. In the playoffs, the Maroons stuffed NorKam Saints 2-0 (25-16, 25-17) and then outlasted the Duchess Park Condors of Prince George 2-1 (21-25, 25-18, 15-12). Jasper Place then swept the Maroons 2-0 (25-14, 25-18) in the semifinals. “Jasper Place are a talented team with height and strong hitters," said Fulton coach Sharon Shaigec. "We unfortunately were caught off guard by their power and as a team, we passed the ball poorly and

were never really in the match.” Fulton rebounded in the bronze-medal match with a 2-0 win (25-18, 25-19) over Langley. Power hitter Kelsey Thompson and middle blocker Sachiko Ouchi were selected to the all-star team. “I have not seen a hitter in the province this year so far who can hit the ball harder than Kelsey Thompson at the power position,” said Shaigec. "Kelsey is every defence's worst nightmare. She hits the ball a ton. Sachiko Ouchi is a quiet leader in middle who does her job solidly, but definitely gets fired up after a big block.” There are 32 senior girls teams and 36 boys entries in the Best of the West.

Keddi-Anne Sherbino celebrates her victory at the Okanagan Marathon Sunday morning in Kelowna.

Sherbino shines in BMO debut Black Press Sports

Keddi-Anne Sherbino looked like she was out for a leisurely stroll Sunday morning in Kelowna. With earphones in place and a perma-grin plastered on her face, she pounded the pavement of Kelowna’s rain-slicked streets. In fact, she was somewhere around the 30-kilometre mark of the 2010 BMO Okanagan Marathon, her first attempt at a 42.2-km distance race. Finishing in three hours 55 seconds, she was the top female and 11th overall, a full 14 minutes ahead of the next female competitor, Janet Lun of North Vancouver. “It was my first-ever marathon, I had run three halfs in the last couple of years and, honestly, I just wanted to see what it would be like to run a marathon,” said Sherbino, who recently moved to Kelowna from Ladner. “I was not at all expecting to win.” Edmonton’s Jack Cook was the overall marathon champion on Sunday with a 2:39:16 clocking. Jason Page of North Carolina (2:44:12) finished second ahead of Matt Brassard of Edmonton in 2:46:01. The top Vernon finisher was Steve Briggeman in 27th (3:14:09). The fastest local woman was Audrey Kilmartin (3:32:53) who was followed closely by Rachel Peters (3:34:41). Vernon’s Peter Baumeister turned in a stellar time, winning the Under 19 division in 3:21:27. In the half marathon (21.1 km), Jeff Symonds of Penticton was the winner for the second straight year, finishing in 1:12:51. David Matheson of Penticton was second in 1:16:27, while Tom Wallace of Kamloops took third. Vernon’s Skeets Morel was fourth overall in 1:19:53. Fourteen-year-old Emmy Sim of Salmon Arm won the women’s half in 1:27:45, followed by Stacey Cleveland of Penticton at 1:29:49 and Lori Youdell of Vernon at 1:30:47. Mary Edgar was the fourth overall female at 1:32:30. In the 10K, Kelowna’s Glenn Lear showed the way in 35:10, followed by Peter Cruttenden from Calgary in 36:21, and Andrew Ellis from Snohomish, Wash. in 37:18. First place in the women’s 10 km event went to Abbigail May at 39:26, followed by Glynis Sim at 42:14 – both from Salmon Arm – and Alexis Thomson of Kelowna, who was third at 43:54. More than 3,700 participants took part in the weekend family festival and Boston Marathon qualifying event.

Knopf cruises to national BMX title Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Ian Knopf ended his BMX season as the best in Canada. The 11-year-old member of the Vernon BMX Club garnered the overall amateur male cruiser age-group title last weekend at the Canadian Grand Nationals in Chilliwack. A total of 34 club riders participated in the event that featured 570 racers and more than 100 motos, making it one of the largest in the last decade. Making a return to his childhood sport, Casey Woods, racing in 19-27 Intermediate, earned firstplace finishes all weekend. Tye Krause (7 Intermediate) and Erik Urquhart (8 Intermediate) also earned gold, collecting trophies as tall as they are. Other golds went to Arleigh Hill, Brenden Davies, Chayse Krause, Dean Botterill, Karl Urquhart, Tanner Brown and Nathan Martin. Newcomer Faith Riddick tore up the track in 9 Novice action, taking home silver. Keith Wood, Don Hill, Tyler Riva and Tanner Witt also had runnerup performances in their respective divisions. In pro racing action, Kevin Hill and Mani Kawaguchi scored silver and third respectively.

Collecting bronze medals were Chris Spence Hanya Riddick, Jake Spence, Ken Botterill and Micka Birch. Vernon’s youngest racers, Ava Tepper and Grady Krause (Under 5 class) gave a tremendous effort to reach their main events.

!WAYWITH WORDS

CHRISTINE MCAVOY PHOTOGRAPHY

Spoken word artist Shane Koyczan and his trio, The Short Story Long, perform at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre as part of the centre’s special presentation series, Oct. 22.

Shane Koyczan returns to Vernon with his poetic way of seeing the world KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

It’s been over a decade since Shane Koyczan first blew his creative writing professor away with his prowess for the written word. Before he became a viral sensation with his ode to Canada at the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Koyczan, now 34, was a student at the north Kelowna campus of Okanagan University College. Vernon’s John Lent was his creative writing teacher. “He was a big presence in class, but also considerate of others’ work in the class,� remembers Lent, who is now regional deal of Okanagan College’s Kalamalka campus. “He was writing contemporary poetry then, not performing it, but he had this dramatic flair. You could tell what was waiting in the wings.� Koyczan is returning to Vernon, this time with musical trio The Short Story Long. As a solo act, Koyczan used to perform in the Kal campus cafeteria on a regular basis. But he has since moved on to international stages, including his biggest so far at the Vancouver Olympics where he wowed the world with his spoken word piece, We Are More. Soon after, Koyczan was asked to perform a sort of farewell poem to the Winter Games live on U.S. TV, where he invited longtime friend, folk artist Dan Mangan, to perform with him. “I’ve answered a lot of questions about the Olympics. What can I say, I was thrilled everyone responded the way they did,� said Koyczan. About to enter the studio to record a new album with The Short Story Long, Koyczan has no intention of slowing down, and even hints that he is working on the new Mad Max film, which he can’t say too much about at this point. “I travel so much, I find it good to come home to somewhere small and just relax,� he says. It’s taken a lot of words to get to this point. Upon graduating, Koyczan received a reference from Lent on his application to Montreal’s National Theatre School, but instead he moved to Vancouver. With his talent to not just write poetry, but to read it aloud, Koyczan soon found himself on the evolving slam poetry scene, a type of performance art where poets compete with words. He went on to become the first non-American to win the 2000 U.S. National Slam Poetry Championships, and also shared the stage with poet Maya Angelou, who said about him, “The future of poetry is in good hands.� Although Koyczan appeared on stage in high school plays in Penticton, where he grew up and

now lives, it was in Lent’s class where the gears shifted, so to speak. “In high school, I found it fun to play someone else for a while, as I wasn’t all that impressed with myself then,� said Koyczan, who was born in Yellowknife, and later moved to the Okanagan where he was raised by his grandparents. “It was in college where I fell in love with the writing component. It was a natural progression. The writing course developed my self worth.� Another influence came from a man not known for his words, but his actions, Charlie Chaplin. It was through the Tramp’s work where Koyczan says he developed his keen sense of humour, even when talking about painful subjects. “It was Chaplin who said, ‘To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it,’� said Koyczan. “In The Great Dictator, the monologue at the end, is what influenced my style as an orator. We used to watch his movies chronologically, so I was not used to hearing him speak until the end.� Koyczan is known for taking deeply moving stories, often personal memories of being bullied as a child for being overweight, and waxing poetic about them in his fast-moving, rap attack style. When you listen to Koyczan’s poignant words, you do so at your own risk, said Lent. “He has an incredible sense of humour, and an incredible social conscious. He’s a champion for people who have been kicked around or marginalized. The scary stuff is what I like best.� And it’s the scary stuff that still drives Koyczan. “I don’t know if I would be what I am now if I hadn’t have gone through that,� he said. “It was hard to do at first. It’s still hard. To just go on stage and be emotionally naked has its challenges. It’s scary to do, but the rewards are vast.� That’s apparent from the amount of e-mails, Koyczan receives from people who have seen his act. Most recently heard and seen around these parts when he and The Short Story Long performed at the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival in August, Koyczan had the audience enraptured, and laughing. He even sang a piece, something, he says, he usually leaves to his bandmates, Olivia Mennell, Maiya Robbie and Stefan Bienz, in The Short Story Long. “The band is always pushing me to do it. They’re just being nice,� laughed Koyczan. “I love this group. They are incredibly talented. It’s good to go on the road with people I love, and they seem to tolerate me, as I can be tough to live with sometimes.� Audiences can hear all about it when Koyczan and The Short Story Long take the stage at the Performing Arts Centre Oct. 22 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the Ticket Seller, 5497469, www.ticketseller.ca.

Shelter with these covers Santana: Guitar Heaven

G

uitar Heaven is an unusual but fitting project for honorary guitar god, Carlos Santana. For a player of his status, with his history, to take on recognized “classics” is to pay tribute and recognize his peers. It could be daunting and it’s definitely not ego-centric. There’s one thing that Santana’s project is, and that’s interesting. There’s the motivation to consider and the song choices themselves. Dean Gordon-Smith Over the last decade or so, Santana has chosen to be the guest star/featured player on his own albums, hiring high-profile collaborators, usually singers. But this is his first album of solely cover material, so the concept had to be different. As a player, Santana is more than up to the task of wailing along to these songs. However, as a musician, some of the tracks don’t benefit from his style and his interpretation is wasted. It’s a mixed bag: Photograph, Bang A Gong and Smoke on the Water are throw away songs –– bar band material with stellar guitar over top.

STREET SOUNDS

SUNDAY NIGHT JAM wi

Featured vocalists like Chris Daughtry, Gavin Rossdale and Jacoby Shaddix don’t add anything new to these tracks, which cast a karaoke-like glow on Guitar Heaven. But wait –– there’s redemption! Santana saves inspiration for a Joe Cocker-fuelled Little Wing and he works out an expressive take on Riders On the Storm with Ray Manzarek and Chester Bennington. The songs are looser, the playing sweeter and risks are taken. Under the Bridge gets a creative full-on Santana treatment in a Moonflower-era reworking. In an album of odd choices, Whole Lotta Love and Back In Black are the ugly ducklings. Chris Cornell works the Zeppelin track like a Neolithic chestbeating banshee and rapper Nas’ take on AC/DC is different and left-field enough to avoid comparison with the school boys. Santana abides.

World winds its way here Morning Star Staff

Runaway Moon Theatre’s local tour of its new show The World is Upside Down is off and running to communities in the Shuswap and North Okanagan. A blend of the Grindrod company’s intriguing style of puppet theatre and African storytelling, the production weaves together different languages, cultures and times, with an undercurrent of the common experience of water. From a wild nighttime taxi ride in Nairobi, to a gentle moment of connection over the pleasure of making music, it uses the true story of events that took place in Kenya not too long ago. The show features Kenyan performer Jimmy Ouma Okello and Runaway Moon artistic director Cathy Stubington, and tells the story of how they came to know each other, and learned to work together. The World is Upside Down visits the Whitevalley Community Centre in Lumby, Sunday at 2 p.m. The show will also come to the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall on Kal Lake

Members exhibit enters #10 The North Okanagan Artists Alternative is reminding all member artists to submit to its 10th annual exhibition.

Artists are instead invited to submit visual art in any and all media. Writers, musicians, actors, video and performance artists, who are NOAA members, are encouraged to participate, and new members are always welcome.

C HECK I T O UT AT B OOKLAND AT HOME Bill Bryson and his family live in a Victorian parsonage in a part of England where nothing of any great significance has happened since the Romans decamped. Yet one day, he began to consider how very little he knew about the ordinary things of life as found in that comfortable home. To remedy this, he formed the idea of journeying about his house from room to room to “write a history of the world without leaving home.” The bathroom provides the occasion for a history of hygiene; the bedroom, sex, death, and sleep; the kitchen, nutrition and the spice trade; and so on, as Bryson shows how each has figured in the evolution of private life. Whatever happens in the world, he demonstrates, ends up in our house, in the paint and the pipes and the pillows and every item of furniture.

10th Annual

Mountainfest returns Merritt Herald

Country music fans are rejoicing with the news that after a oneyear hiatus, the Merritt Mountain Music Festival (better known as Mountainfest) is returning in 2011. Claude Lelievre, festival co-founder with Active Mountain Entertainment, said the decision was made in response to popular demand. “It’s an amazing thing. This festival has got a life of its own. I guess people feel like they own this thing, and have been asking why we aren’t doing it — so we are,” said Lelievre, adding he received many emails and said his phone wouldn’t stop ringing. With the return of Mountainfest set for July 7 to 10, the emails haven’t stopped. Now he’s hearing things like, “We missed, you — thank God you’re back.” Festival-goers can also be thankful that admission and camping prices have been reduced. Lelievre said that in the past couple of years they noticed that while pricing for single tickets was reasonable, packages became very expensive for large

groups or families. “Mountainfest is about large groups, so in some areas we’ve shaved the prices.” Active Mountain Entertainment will also be offering a payment plan. “That will make things easier for the large groups and large families, as well as people who are buying for Christmas or birthday presents,” said Lelievre. And with tickets going on sale Nov. 15, the timing for Christmas shopping is just right. Mountainfest was halted after 17 years because of financial concerns caused by a decline in festival attendance coupled with the high cost of performers. However, Lelievre said the company has taken a number of measures to address these concerns and is getting a lot of support. “We have a minority partner and we have revamped all of our budgets and cleaned up our plate administratively and our costs are going down,” said Lelievre. “Also we are getting some help from the city on servicing items.” Ultimately, Lelievre

Regional bankruptcies on the rise Despite the suggestion by some economists the recession is over, there may be no better sign the economy continues to sputter than the number of personal bankruptcies being filed in the region. According to data from the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy, the number of personal insolvency filings in the Thompson-Okanagan is up by nine per cent from the first to second quarters of 2010. A total of 379 people in the region were forced to file for bankruptcy between April and June of this year, compared to 347 during the previous three months. The number of insolvencies has only dipped by three per cent from the spring of

2009, at the height of the recession. Cecil Cheveldave, a vice-president with KPMG and a trustee in bankruptcy in Kamloops, said he’s not seeing the surge of bankruptcies he did in 2009, but the numbers and demand for insolvency service remain strong — especially on the consumer side. Cheveldave said he’s still seeing a lot of people who have seen some reduction in employment and are just a paycheque or two away from trouble. He surmised some consumers have been procrastinating, assuming the economic climate will get better. But, in a lot of cases, it hasn’t and the consumer has failed to make the necessary adjustments to their budget.

Cheveldave believes much of the personal insolvency problems could be avoided by people getting back to fundamentals — managing their money, living within their means and having a household budget. “If people did that consistently, we wouldn’t have as many insolvency filings,” he said. The number of business or corporate insolvencies in the region has dropped to 13 in the second quarter of 2010 from 19 in 2009. Though the number of business insolvencies in the region remains low, that could be misleading. Many small-business owners will file for personal bankruptcy rather than doing so through their business.

Nurses take a shot at flu season Morning Star Staff

Public health nurses across the Interior Health Authority are gearing up for the influenza vaccination campaign which starts during the last week of October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vaccine contains three different flu strains, and includes the pandemic strain that we saw last year,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Rob Parker, medical health officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The two most important ways to protect yourself this flu season are to wash your hands frequently, and get your flu shot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially if you are over 65, or have a chronic health condition.â&#x20AC;? The flu is highly contagious and can cause severe complications for those with heart, lung, and other health problems. Even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become severely ill, getting the flu can mean several missed days of school, work, and other activities. Flu vaccinations are a proven, safe and effective way to reduce your chances of getting the flu and to lessen the severity of symptoms if you do get it. For the clinic nearest you watch for local announcements on dates and times in your community or contact your local public health office (check the blue pages in your phone book under health authorities) or visit www.interiorhealth.ca for a complete listing. Many physician offices also provide vaccines free to those who are eligible. The flu shot is free for: â&#x2013;  People 65 years and older and their caregivers/household contacts â&#x2013;  Children and adults with chronic health conditions and their household contacts â&#x2013;  Children and adolescents (six months to 18 years) with conditions treated for long periods of time with Acetylsalicylic acid and

their household contacts â&#x2013;  Adults who are very obese â&#x2013;  Aboriginal people â&#x2013;  Healthy children ages six to 23 months â&#x2013;  Household contacts and caregivers of infants up to 23 months â&#x2013;  Pregnant women who will be in their third trimester during influenza season and their household contacts. â&#x2013;  Residents of nursing homes and other chronic care facilities

â&#x2013;  Health care and other care providers in facilities and community settings who are capable of transmitting influenza to those at high risk of influenza complications â&#x2013;  People who work with live poultry and/ or swine. â&#x2013;  Individuals who provide care or service in potential outbreak settings that house high risk persons (e.g., crew on ships) While flu shots are free for those 65 and older and those at risk, anyone can benefit

from a flu shot. According to IHA, it is 70 to 90 per cent effective in preventing influenza in healthy children and adults. People not eligible for free flu vaccine through the publiclyfunded program should contact their physician, local pharmacy, walkin clinic, travel clinic or private provider. Information is available at www.immunizebc.ca or at www. healthlinkbc.ca. You can also call 8-1-1 to speak to a health care professional.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Grasping the essence of a new idea or concept before anybody else does will give you a competitive edge over your peers. Be sure to implement it the moment you recognize it for what it is.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It will be no surprise that your leadership qualities are seeking expression, just be sure to do so in a manner that ingratiates you to others. Done right, it’ll be hail to the chief.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Changes you’ve needed to make but were unable to implement until now can bring about something that everybody else has been trying to get their hands on. Use your edge wisely.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although you might be anxious to get a start on the weekend festivities, you’ll first need to finalize matters and tie things down, which you can do through your naturalborn tenacity.

Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once.

1

The upcoming year could be one where your talents and luck blend in a manner that can guarantee success, especially where your career is concerned. Give Dame Fortune a bit of help and watch what happens once you get started.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If someone with whom you have lost touch is on your mind, try to reopen lines of communication once again. Something this person is involved in would be perfect for you right now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could be luckier than usual in areas that can enhance your financial wherewithal and security. It would be a shame to waste your time on endeavors that yield no profit or growth. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Be self-reliant, because you could be particularly fortunate by putting your imprint on situations that are personally important. Don’t let others do what you can perform better. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) It isn’t your nature need crowds in order to be happy. Seeking out a certain amount of solitude to sort out all your thoughts would do you a world of good. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Plan to engage in some kind of activity with friends who challenge your creativity and resourcefulness. You need to be mentally aroused as well as physically stimulated. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Something great you did a long time ago, which you thought was totally forgotten, might be brought to light once again. Be gracious in how you handle this, keeping in mind it was in the past.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Being the big dog isn’t as important to you as being able to please your companions and make them feel special. It’s this attitude that makes you so popular among your peers, and it will continue to do so. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Others might be looking for enjoyment and gratification in frivolous activities, but you will still be keeping your nose to the grindstone. Don’t look up until your goal is realized.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder Ernest Dimnet, a French priest, author and lecturer who moved to the United States after World War I, said, “The happiness of most people we know is not ruined by great catastrophes or fatal errors, but by the repetition of slowly destructive little things.” At the bridge table, repetition is often quickly destructive. Don’t tell your story twice -- as North did in this deal from a charity pro-am game in Saint Louis in August. When North raised to two hearts, he showed a minimum opening bid with heart support -- exactly what he had. Yes, he might have raised with only three hearts and a singleton somewhere,

but his hand had eight losers: three spades, one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. And responder would have assumed opener had only seven losers. Once South did not rebid, North should have passed. Also note East’s double. This showed a good three-suited hand short in hearts. Yes, three clubs would have made, perhaps with an overtrick, but three hearts went down three without the option. West led his singleton diamond, ducked to East’s king. East gave West a diamond ruff, and West shifted to a club. South took that trick and played a trump, West putting in his 10. Declarer

won with dummy’s king and cashed the ace to get the bad news. Now when South turned to diamonds, West ruffed and the defenders cashed three spades and one club. Plus 150 was worth 21.5 matchpoints out of 23. Finally, yes, West should have doubled three hearts.

CT scanner canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come soon enough BARB BROUWER Black Press

CT scans should be available in Salmon Arm on a 24-hour basis by next spring; as soon as technicians are trained and comfortable with using the machine on their own. And the service canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be online soon enough for Heather Middlestead, whose badly injured son had to be taken to Kamloops after a car crash, because the CT scanner at Shuswap Lake General

Hospital only operates between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they were loading my son (into the ambulance) there were four paramedics there. It was agonizing for him when they were fitting him into the shell,â&#x20AC;? she says with frustration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And and now he has to go bumpitybump over the road to Kamloops. He was in a lot of pain with six broken ribs, and could hardly breathe, let alone brace himself. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inhumane.â&#x20AC;?

She recalls the campaign in which Shuswap residents raised $1.5 million in one year for the scanner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was supposed to make this so much better for people and the people came through. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how important they thought it was.â&#x20AC;? The Interior Health Authority says they believe the service is important too and would have it up-and-running sooner rather than later, if it were possible.

Compulsive behaviour requires action CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR

Programs and online resources exist for individuals who are struggling to come to terms with sexual addiction. Such an addiction can negatively impact lives, jobs and families.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something we talk about and the shame is enormous.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Julie Walkinshaw change, to change behaviour so that healthy sex adds value to life,â&#x20AC;? said Walkinshaw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There can be problems with partners when one is an addict and the other is not so that they have different expectations. One partner can feel left behind, that they are not enough anymore.â&#x20AC;? As a therapist, Walkinshaw is concerned with how society is changing, with sexual material more readily available to everyone, including children. This changes family relationships as some or all of the mem-

bers may have secret addictions that prevent them from being close and supporting each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something we talk about and the shame is enormous,â&#x20AC;? said Walkinshaw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel good about themselves and the stress of hiding the addiction builds up for them. Like any addiction, the sooner it can be dealt with, the easier it is for people to get back into positive patterns of behaviour where they can reach their best potential.â&#x20AC;? Any addiction is an attempt to stimulate or soothe a person so

the health and treatment challenge is to help the addict find healthy ways to deal with stress and have pleasure in their lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people who get into counseling and recovery are some of the strongest people on earth,â&#x20AC;? said Walkinshaw. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They have so much fortitude, insight and courage. They learn new ways of coping with stress and what adds to their lives and what takes away from their lives.â&#x20AC;? Walkinshaw got interested in working in addictions because of the potential to work with people to overcome negative behaviour and reach the lives they wanted. She suggests that people who think that sex addiction is taking over their lives speak to a family doctor, minister or psychiatrist for treatment options.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a taboo subject but we wontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; make it better by not talking about it,â&#x20AC;? said Walkinshaw, a certified sex addiction therapist who offers treatment including patient, outpatient, and aftercare support and self-help groups to re-learn healthy sex habits. Treatment includes family education and support. Take the sex addiction screening test at www.SexHelp.com or see www.GentlePath.com for information on books and other materials to help understand sex addiction. Walkinshaw recommends the work of Patrick J. Carnes, of the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals. Carnes is author of Out of the Shadows and other books and materials.

People are finding it easier to talk about and seek help for addictions, but there is one addiction that is usually spoken of as a joke, if it is spoken of at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people have sexual addictions and struggle with them, mostly alone because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so taboo,â&#x20AC;? said Julie Walkinshaw, a counsellor with the Vernon Professional Group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sex addiction is any compulsive sexual act that becomes problematic to where it interferes with normal living, relationships, work and causes stress for family and friends.â&#x20AC;? Sex addiction can take the form of excessive masturbation, numerous affairs, voyeurism, exhibitionism, viewing pornography, taking part in online sex, hiring prostitutes or having anonymous sex. The key sign is that the behaviour is compulsive and out of control. Walkinshaw emphasized that everyone has different sexual appetites and if their behaviours are not hurting anyone else or having any other negative consequences, then it is an individual choice. Sex addicts may be willing to sacrifice everything that is important to them in order to continue their behaviour. This leads to consequences like sexually transmitted diseases, a sense of shame and fear of being found out, hurting others, trouble with the law, spending too much money on the addiction, a fascination with pornography and being a porn star, losing employment and relationships, substance abuse and suicide. People, of any age or background who see that their addiction is harming themselves and those close to them, may try to help themselves through moving to a new area, getting a new job and friends, immersing themselves in religion or depriving themselves of sex entirely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Depriving can be as harmful as indulging and it is possible, if person seeks the help to

However, since she described herself as a “positive” parent, I’m guessing her son suffers from Positive Parenting Syndrome.

Here’s the problem: Dad thinks anyone who takes so much as a sip of beer is a raging drunk. He is obsessed with other people’s drinking habits and gossips about them constantly. I found out that Dad thinks some of his family members have an alcohol problem. But, Annie, no one has had a drink around him for 20 years out of respect for his sobriety and a fear that he’d relapse. He seems to be envious of people who can have a drink. Do all recovering alcoholics feel this way? We aren’t the type of family to discuss personal things, but we feel Dad owes all of us an apology for everything he put us through.

News Workshop prepares for changing climate Morning Star Staff

Extreme weather patterns, including more frequent flooding, is one of the projected outcomes of climate change. Managing stormwater effectively will be a critical adaptation tool. “We’ve seen the incredible damage that extreme storm events and flooding can cause,” said Anna Warwick Sears, executive director of the Okanagan Basin Water Board, pointing to the devastation on B.C.’s west coast recently. “We’ve seen people displaced, roads washed out, and damage to infrastructure. Here in the Okanagan, severe storms like these are expected with climate change. A lot of work has been done in recent years to develop effective practices and tools to address heavy rainfall, but the Okanagan – and many B.C. communities – have not kept up.” The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB)

“We also have to prepare for bigger storms.” — Warwick Sears and the BC Water & Waste Association (BCWWA) are hoping this will change. The two agencies are organizing a workshop, From Rain to Resource: Managing Stormwater in a Changing Climate, Oct. 28 and 29 at the Best Western Inn in Kelowna. The event is geared to those whose work touches on stormwater management, including planners, engineers, and landscape architects, but also those who develop and adopt stormwater policy, such as senior municipal staff and elected officials. “We have spent a lot of time in the province, talking about and preparing for increased droughts as a result of

climate change. But we also have to prepare for bigger storms,” noted Warwick Sears. This includes discussion about appropriate hillside development, the importance of wetlands in preventing flooding, and ensuring effective infrastructure. “Stormwater management is both a quantity and quality issue,” adds Daisy Foster, CEO of the BCWWA. “We are concerned with the amount of run-off, but also pollutants in stormwater that enter the receiving waters, and the negative impacts they can create.” The Rain to Resource workshop will look at innovative developments in rainwater management and how barriers to

change have been overcome in communities in B.C. and beyond. A tradeshow will also be held and highlight companies who are at the forefront in developing innovative rainwater management technologies. Day one of the workshop will feature technical presentations that focus on best practices and tools for rainwater management, illustrated through case studies. Day two will open with MLA John Slater, Parliamentary Secretary for Water Supply and Allocation, speaking on

how we can integrate rainwater management practices and tools to adapt to climate change, and the policies that support them. Day two will also feature keynote speaker, Brock Dolman, director of the California-based WATER Institute. Dolman has been featured on many radio programs and in awardwinning films, including The 11th Hour by Leonardo DiCaprio. For more information and to register, visit bcwwa.org/seminars/ RtoR.htm.

Increased Asian sales aid forest industry’s recovery TOM FLETCHER Black Press

B.C.’s lumber production improved by a third in the first half of 2010, as mills reopened or added shifts mainly to meet new Asian demand. The latest Statistics Canada figures reflect the B.C. industry’s slow recovery in recent months, but the 33 per cent increase from the same period last year is better than expected, Forests Minister Pat Bell says. Perhaps the surest sign that the B.C. industry is on the mend is another trade complaint from the U.S. government. While B.C.’s recovery is led by Chinese lumber demand, shipments to the United States were also up 16 per cent. The U.S. government has recently asked for arbitration under the 2006 softwood lumber agreement on the price of pine beetle-attacked timber harvested from provincial land. The B.C. government maintains that timber auctions established a market price for the large volumes of beetle-killed wood that has been cut. The B.C. Lumber Trade Council says timber pricing and log grading systems for the B.C. Interior were “explicitly grandparented” from the 2006 lumber deal. Council president John Allan says it’s no coincidence that the long-running trade dispute is flaring up now, with U.S. mid-term elections approaching and campaigning senators in

lumber states calling for federal action. “It appears that once again softwood lumber has become a political

share since its housing market collapsed. The lumber trade council says Canada’s share has shrunk from 34 per

“It’s early days yet of a recovery, but I think it’s a clear signal that things are improving,” Bell said.

MAZUR â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nick It is with great sadness to announce the sudden passing of Nick Mazur at North Okanagan Hospice House on Sunday, October 10th, 2010 at the age of 78 years. Nick was predeceased by his loving wife, Vera, in July this year, and by one brother, Andrew, and two sisters Stephanie Grierson and Victoria Bragg. He is survived by two sons Brian (Thelma) Mazur of Enderby, Danny (Lorraine) Mazur of Armstrong; two daughters Lynda (Laurie) Shykora of Vernon, Janice (Jerry) Hockman of Enderby; 9 grandchildren Joshua, Jeremy, Brandon, Lianne, Lyndon, Dana, Corey, Jordan and Colin; 2 great- grandchildren Tamieka and Destiny. Nick was born October 10, 1932 in Weasel Creek, Alberta where he lived with his parents, Joseph and Olga Mazur and his brothers and sisters. Nick worked on the family farm in Weasel Creek, then moved with his family to Vernon in 1948. From there, Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family moved to the family farm on Fortune Road. Nick married Vera Petch in 1955 and along with his wife and family, worked on their Trinity Creek dairy farm from 1960 on. Besides farming, Nick was employed at the Riverside Mill for many years. Nick was also an active member of the Riverside Community Club. Nick spent his life farming and as he said recently â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;farming isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a get-rich-quick thing; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He never strayed far from the farm, other than occasional trips away to visit family and friends and his weekly trips to Valley Auction. Nick was a hard working man, though no matter how busy he always had time to help other people out.
