Motorists avoiding roundabout

ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Travelling at a high rate of speed toward Vernon, a wouldbe car thief got a surprise when the car started slowing down on its own in Spallumcheen. Turns out the man had taken an RCMP bait car from the Salmon Arm area. The Vernon detachment was notified of the bait car activation at around 9 p.m. Saturday, and that the car was heading to Vernon at a high speed. “A police dog service handler and his dog went out toward Armstrong and set up, and when the vehicle went past them, they called to have the bait car shut down,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “That happened near Eagle Rock Road on Highway 97A.” When officers are in close proximity to a bait car, they will ask to have the car shut down when it’s safe to do so. In this case, the vehicle had slowed and was on a straight stretch of highway when the call to activate the bait car’s kill switch was placed. “It’s very much like running out of gas,” said Molendyk. “The kill switch on the vehicle kills the engine, but it still functions so the driver can pull it over.” The lone male occupant was arrested on the spot. Had he chosen to run, the police service dog was ready to give chase. The man, 43, from the Kelowna area, was also determined by RCMP to be intoxicated. He was slated to appear in Vernon Provincial Court Monday to face charges of possession of stolen property, impaired driving and breach of a court order, which had the provision that the suspect was not to be alone in a vehicle unless the vehicle’s owner is present.

Vernon firefighter Reinhard Mann gets his moustache shaved off by Holly Deleenheer, of O’Haira’s Salon, Monday. The event was part of the Movember fundraiser to promote prostate cancer awareness.

A hair-raising fundraiser JUSTIN SEWARD Morning Star Staff

There were some cold upper lips at the Vernon fire hall Monday, but it was all for a good cause. Twenty-one firefighters shaved off their moustaches so they can regrow them as part of Movember, a campaign raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer in November. “It feels cooler and draftier after 23 years of donning it,” said Reinhard Mann when asked how he felt after having his moustache trimmed off. Each November, Prostate Cancer Canada encourages men to grow moustaches as part of the fight against cancer. The cause is personal for Jeff Carlisle, Vernon’s fire chief. “A mentor of mine and an ex-fire chief who gave me the career of my life, had prostate cancer and died from it,” said Carlisle who lost his moustache

Monday. “I have had mine for 30 years, 23 years with the military and being overseas.” Mann wholeheartedly supports the Movember campaign. “It’s perfect and it’s a good cause,” he said. “We’re giving up a little to help people with prostate cancer.” It didn’t take much convincing to bring firefighters on board. “If one guy does it around here you should buy in as the group doesn’t let you off the hook easily,” said Kim Bolton. “I’ve known a couple of patients that died and it’s nice to contribute some funds back.” Vernon firefighters will gather pledges during November. For information on Movember and Prostate Cancer Canada, go to www.ca.movember.com.

Enderby motorists aren’t using a roundabout and that has politicians going in circles. Council decided Monday to ask the RCMP to monitor Cliffview Drive because residents are avoiding the roundabout, which was constructed in 2008, and using a more dangerous route. “It was constructed to ensure safe passage for people in that area,” said Coun. Howie Cyr. “We want to ensure people are using it and not circumventing the roundabout.” Instead of the Howie Cyr roundabout, many motorists continue to use Johnston Street, which includes a sharp curve. “I guess they think it’s quicker but it’s not as safe,” said Mayor Dee Wejr, adding that city staff has taken measurements of the routes. “It takes about 20 seconds longer to use the roundabout.” Cyr also has concerns about the Johnston Street intersection. “That corner was probably not well engineered in the first place,” he said. “It’s such a sharp corner to negotiate.” However, Cyr understands why some people are continuing to use Johnston Street. “People have been doing the alternative for a long time,” he said. “It would be good if people adopted use of the roundabout.” That portion of Johnston Street can’t be closed because the road provides access to many homes. Wejr hopes that a stepped up police presence will change the habits of Enderby motorists. “We’re asking that it be targeted for enforcement,” she said of the Cliffview/ Johnston area. The roundabout cost about $300,000 to construct.

News New school dazzles students, staff RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

It was a day they had long anticipated. With principal Tracy Godfrey in the lead, a long line of students and teachers snaked its way from the old Coldstream Elementary and to the new school just a few feet away on the Kalamalka Road site Monday. “It’s thrilling, we’re making history,� said Godfrey. Walking down the halls was overwhelming for students, particularly after observing construction from the outside since June 2009. “It looks like an airport. It’s huge,� said Ayla Winston, who is in Grade 7. It’s anticipated the new library — with its open concept and rows of books — will be popular. Standing on the main floor, you can look down into the library on the lower level. “It’s cool,� said Nick Demetrick, a Grade 7 student. In Shawna Buffie’s Grade 2 class, there were plenty of distractions including a new reading area and a sink with a water fountain. “Our cubbies are in here and we have new desks,� said student Sarah Boyd. But it wasn’t just students fascinated by the unfamiliar surroundings.

classroom. Among the highlights are the natural colours on the walls and the sunlight streaming in through large windows. “It’s a nice, relaxing space,� said Alberto. Saying goodbye to the old school was difficult for Janet Townsend, a Grade 1 teacher. “I’m not sure how I feel,� said Townsend, who has taught at the school for 32 years and attended Grade 6 and 7 there. “I have mixed emotions. I have lots of tissue with me.� Classes first began in parts of the structure in 1909, with additions occurring right until the 1970s. “There’s so many memories in this building. It (moving) has been exciting but it’s also sad,� said

Godfrey. To signify a new chapter at Coldstream Elementary, each class contributed items to a time capsule during Monday’s final assembly in the old gym. The items included written recollections; self-portraits of students; students’ signatures on a ball, chalk brush and pencil sharpener; and a photo with a frame made from wood and flooring in a class. Moving to a new house comes with hurdles, but relocating 390 students and all of the support they require is monumental. Virtually everything was packed up in June and only those barebone items needed to run classes between September and now were kept out. “The staff at every level have been outstanding through this process,� said Godfrey. “We couldn’t have pulled it off without teamwork. The teachers put in 27 hours preparing their classes, and that was outside of class time.� The next step in the $13.4 million project will be to demolish the old school so a parking lot can be developed. Portables will be removed and that area will be reclaimed by sports fields. “We’re hoping that by spring break (2011), we will be 100 per cent ready. That’s our goal,� said Godfrey.

TRUST YOUR INTUITION INNER PEACE MOVEMENT OF CANADA welcomes International speaker Vickey Brim and President Judy Guido

No funds for equine study

TUESDAY, NOV. 9 1pm & 7pm Best Western Vernon Lodge 3914 32nd Street

ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

It’s a trifecta of communities who support an equine facility in the North Okanagan. But, like Enderby and Lumby before them, Spallumcheen is not willing to pay for a feasibility study on the project. Council voted by a margin of 3-2 Monday to amend an original motion that called for the township to send a letter of support for the facility and study. The amendment removed the feasibility study from the motion, and it passed by a margin of 3-2 with Coun. Dave Brew and Mayor Will Hansma opposed. “My recollection is when we discussed this at committee of the whole, I understood we supported the concept but not the feasibility study,” said Coun. Christine Fraser, who called for the amendment. Hansma believes council was making a mistake. “Our portion would be about $2,500 for the concept and feasibility study,” said Hansma. “This facility could have significant economic benefits to the region. I would have liked to have seen us support the whole package.” Coun. Janice Brown said the amended motion still gives the township the option to have the issue come back and say how much a study on an equine facility would cost. “Let’s start and see if there’s support from the Agricultural Land Commission and lotteries,” said Brown.

“Let’s start and see if there’s support from the ALC...” — Janice Brown North Okanagan Regional District officials recently received terms of reference for a potential feasibility study into an equestrian centre that could also include training, a veterinary hospital and boarding of horses. The ALC would have to give its approval if the facility was built on 100 acres in the Agricultural Land Reserve, and the B.C. Lottery Corporation would have to sanction a gaming operation which would be part of the facility. Spallumcheen’s neighbour, the City of Armstrong, said in a letter that its council questions the benefit of an additional gambling facility when there are so many available in the Okanagan. Armstrong council was opposed to supporting the initiative if the equestrian centre business case can only be made viable by including a gaming facility, and would not be providing a letter of support. Councillors Todd York and Andrew Casson were absent from the vote in Spallumcheen Monday.

Blaze destroys Splats’in home

“helping you find the answers”

Morning Star Staff

There was little Enderby firefighters could do to stop an early morning blaze Monday. A crew of 15 volunteers were called to the 500 block of Pumphouse Road, on the Splats’in First Nation, at 12:40 a.m. “It was fully involved when we got there,” said Dan Doran, Enderby dep- — Dan Doran uty fire chief, of the mobile home. At that point, the primary focus for the department was ensuring that the blaze didn’t spread beyond the trailer. “We had to protect the exposures,” said Doran. Because the trailer roof had collapsed under the intensity of the heat, putting the fire out was a challenge. The RCMP are responsible for investigating fires on Indian reserves, but no cause has been determined at this time. It’s believed the blaze originated in the living room. “They were doing work in there that day,” said Doran referring to Sunday. The mobile home was vacant at the time but it has previously been rented out. The structure was uninsured.

“It was fully involved.”

Tolko Industries expands base in China Morning Star Staff

A North Okanagan company is increasing its profile in Asia. Tolko Industries has signed two major contracts with China National Building Materials. “We are very pleased to take this next step in strengthening our relationship with CNBM,” said Brad Thorlakson, president of Vernon-based Tolko. “Our businesses have longterm compatible objectives, the

pursuit of which benefit our companies, employees, customers, and communities.” China National Building Materials is the country’s number one lumber distributor to China’s construction industries. For the first time, studs are taking front stage in overseas growth. The new contract will see Tolko’s Brad Thorlakson Soda Creek division dedicating lumber to CNBM. “The secure market agree-

ment is welcome news for the employees of Soda Creek division and the community of Williams Lake,” said Thorlakson. The second signing renewed a contract involving all product produced by Tolko’s dimensional lumber mill in the Quesnel area. Combined, these contracts represent more than 364-million-board-feet of lumber heading from the province to the Chinese market. “We continue to see growth of lumber use in the Chinese building sector and a

broadening range of wood products sought,” said John Langley, Tolko’s manager of export sales. Thorlakson notes the positive effect provided through the adoption of the harmonized sales tax on securing deals such as the ones in China. “We are in a very competitive industry that operates on a global platform,” said Thorlakson. “B.C.’s move to an HST system helps companies like us be able to meet the international pricing levels.”

Paintball attack raises concern ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Regan Truscott thought, at first, the item that hit her in the chest while out for a walk with her 19-month-old son on their BX acreage might have been thrown by her husband. Truscott was out Saturday morning on a bright, sunshine-filled day, with her son. They had strolled down the driveway of their Hartnell Road property and up a path that takes them into a large, fairly open clearing. The Truscotts ended up on a secondary gravel road when Regan paused to watch her son looking around, chatting and being a curious nearly-twoyear-old boy. That’s when Truscott felt something hit her in the chest, not hard enough to leave a welt but definitely noticeable. “My first thought was my husband must have followed me on the path we’d taken and was playing a joke on us and threw a rock at us,” said Truscott, who is 35 weeks pregnant with the couple’s second child. “I thought, ‘why would he

throw a rock at me? He knows our son is right there.’ It was inches from my chin and hit me in the chest. I was very confused about this.” That’s when it s t r u c k Truscott to look down and see if what had hit had left a — Regan mark. And it did. A big pink mark. “I figured out I’d been hit by a paintball,” said Truscott, who immediately felt concern and started to look around the property. That’s when she saw a vehicle, a white North American sedan-style car, four-door, probably an older model late-80s-early-90s, appear from the uphill side of Hartnell Road heading down. Out of the passenger side, Truscott said she could see a child, maybe aged 10-to-12, sitting on the door, hanging out of the window with a paintball rifle. At that point, Truscott said,

she kind of lost it. “I screamed at them and said, ‘You hit me,’” said Truscott. “The kid looked at me with huge eyes, got back in the car, pulled the rifle into the car and the car just drove off.” Tr u s c o t t never saw the driver Truscott but assumed it was a parent, and had no idea who it was. Being 35 weeks pregnant and with her 19-month-old in tow, she said she couldn’t run to obtain a licence plate number. The response of the people in the vehicle led Truscott to believe they had no idea she was on the property. “I don’t think they were shooting at me on purpose,” she said. “I think they were target shooting up the road. I’m concerned they didn’t stop, absolutely. It’s reasonable to think you would stop and make sure the person was okay.” While not physically hurt by being struck with the paintball,

“I screamed at them and said ‘You hit me.’”

Truscott said she was orginally very angry. Then she got more shaken as the day went on. “We’ve had people come up into the area and illegally shoot animals, deer especially, I thought, ‘what if it had been a hunter and it had been an errant bullet?’” she said. “Thank goodness the paintball hit me and not my son. The more that time went on, the more my husband I became really concerned. You feel unsafe on your own property, and it shouldn’t be that way.” The incident was reported to RCMP, who sent officers to the scene within 10 minutes of the call. The suspect vehicle and individuals were not located. “We do get reports of people being hit with paintballs and we take them very seriously,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “Any time there’s an incident involving injury where you get hit with a paintball but also an incident involving a gun, we take very seriously.” The incident remains under investigation.

Fight sends man to hospital with injuries ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

One person was injured during a Halloween morning fight. RCMP were called to the 3300 block of Alexis Park Drive at 2:15 a.m. Sunday to a call of several people being allegedly involved in a dispute. “One man smashed a beer bottle and slashed another man with the jagged end in the shoulder-to-head area,” said Gord Molendyk, with the RCMP. The victim was taken to hospital with minor injuries. A 35-year-old Vernon man was found by an RCMP police dog service handler and his canine, and taken into custody. The man was slated to appear in court Monday to face a charge of assault

Environment short-changed

T

he Ministry of Environment will deflect criticism about staffing levels by pointing out that the number of local conservation officers climbed in 2008. And nobody can dispute the fact that officer strength went from two to three. On the surface, that’s a significant spike in resources. But keep in mind that there were four officers and a full-time support person in Vernon two decades ago. During the same time that the budget axe was being swung, the population of the region ballooned. That means there are more hunters, fishermen, hikers, campers and Richard Rolke snowmobilers exploring the great outdoors. Mudbogging and quadding have caught on like wildfire. Whole entire subdivisions have also been carved out of hillsides and forests, putting people ever closer to wildlife. That has inevitably led to a rise in conflicts — whether it’s dogs chasing deer or bears rooting through garbage cans. The local conservation officers are dedicated professionals, but there are only three of them. Given regular days off, holidays and the occasional bout of flu, there may only be two available at any given time. Add to this, endless mounds of paperwork on their desks and the prospect of appearing before a judge if someone is arrested. Recently, one officer had to make the long trek to Grand Forks for a court case. The contaminated water source in Lavington has also tied up considerable resources. Still think three conservation officers are more than sufficient? Consider that while the office is located in

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

Vernon, they are responsible for a vast area that stretches from the Kettle River, east of Cherryville, to west of Falkland, and from Wood Lake in Oyama to the Shuswap. Larger than some European countries, it’s a territory that includes countless fishing lakes, miles of logging roads and plenty of places for poachers to hide. As hard as the three officers try, they can’t be everywhere, and when they are searching for a cougar wiping out livestock in Lavington, time and geography are going to prevent an immediate response to something happening down Westside Road or way up in Sorrento or Malakwa. When asked about the situation, VernonMonashee MLA Eric Foster says, “I’d like to think we’re looking at this. I’m going to speak to the new environment minister about this and see if there is any room (in the budget).” And such a response may be fair, given that there is a new minister at the helm of the portfolio and Foster is a rookie MLA, and not privy to all of the decisions being made in Victoria. However, consider that Foster lives in Lumby — which is surrounded by wilderness — and his former career in logging used to take him into the bush. There shouldn’t have been more passion there. On the Ministry of Environment’s Conservation Officer Service website, the following vision is presented: “To be a progressive and respected leader in environmental compliance and enforcement, shared stewardship and public safety.” That sounds really nice but it’s all platitudes when you consider that the men and the women on the ground are understaffed, overworked and don’t have sufficient resources to do their jobs. Poor financial decisions have cut the system short. Eventually something has to give, and it will be the environment that pays the price.

A majority of Spallumcheen council was correct Monday not to commit township taxpayers to a feasibility study for an equestrian centre. After all, there is no firm guarantee that the North Okanagan Regional District and the Okanagan Equestrian Society will even be proceeding with the review. That will largely hinge on the outcome of discussions with theAgricultural Land Commission and the B.C. Lottery Corporation. If the ALC won’t sanction the use of farm land and the BCLC won’t give the green light to gaming — a crucial part of any financial plan — then the concept of a race track, training facilities and a veterinary hospital will be dead in the water. If both of those government agencies suggest a willingness to consider such a use, then there is still time for Spallumcheen to bring its money to the table. Mayor Will Hansma wasn’t pleased with his council’s actions. “Our portion would be about $2,500 for the concept and feasibility study. This facility could have significant economic benefits to the region,” he said. But that projected cost of $2,500 was likely based on all North Okanagan communities participating in the study. Already Enderby and Lumby have bowed out, and if other jurisdictions follow their lead, Spallumcheen’s financial contribution could be significantly higher. Ultimately, the township should take a wait-and-see approach until it’s known which local jurisdictions will fund the study and even if there is sufficient provincial support for the proposal. Anything more than that would be premature.

HST mishandled but...

P

remier Campbell should be made to suffer in some way due to his arrogance, stupidity and foolishness as a result of how he has introduced the HST — stealth and a scarcity of good information. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation now says that the B.C. tax cuts make the HST truly revenue neutral (www. taxpayer.com). The C.D. Howe Institute (www.cdhowe. org ) says, “Adjustment to the tax is small and quickly over, while the benefits are large and permanent.” The Fraser Institute (www.fraserinstitute.org) says, “No need to fear the HST.” Because of tax credits and lower income taxes, “most families with lower incomes will end up paying less tax overall." Past experience in Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia since 1997 resulted in cost savings being passed on to consumers through lower prices. New homes over $556,150 will see a modest after-tax increase, but nowhere near seven per cent (more likely 0.3 per cent). “Reality: The HST will save B.C. businesses an estimated $150 million in annual tax compliance costs." B.C. taxpayers will save another $30 million annually in

OUT OF CONTROL The Greater Vernon parks and recreation service started in 1978 and now, 32 years later, the mayor of Vernon has risked the end of a service that is beneficial and basically fair to all the residents of Greater Vernon. The mayor is now attempting to blame the other partners, but when the review started, all partners were asked to identify their key concerns. Coldstream Mayor Garlick provided a written list of seven basic concerns — nothing from Mayor Wayne Lippert. Director Mike Macnabb (Area C) took the irresponsible position that he was unwilling to comment or commit until water devolution was resolved. After five meetings of about one-and-a-half hours duration (for which they get very well paid), the review reached a point that could see the end of the service as we know it. Vernon council followed the mayor like a bunch of sheep and refused to support a motion to keep the status quo. Coldstream’s concerns could have been easily addressed. This mayor and council have ignored the best interests of the

government administration costs. “The HST will help B.C. recover from the recession more quickly by making the province a more (competitive) and attractive place for investors to locate their capital and expand their operations” thereby increasing employment. Figuratively speaking of course, former Socred Bill

Vernon taxpayers when it relates to services provided via the North Okanagan Regional District. Fire dispatch will cost us much more, there's no concern over the unfair contribution we make for the Sterile Insect Release program, no sharing in the costs of O’Keefe Ranch, and tourism and economic development functions now at the city instead of being shared at Greater Vernon. No resolution to the dispute over Greater Vernon water is in sight. Coldstream and electoral area residents must have nightmares if they think they may be amalgamated into Vernon. No one in their right mind would want to be governed by this mayor and council. Vernon appears to be trying to become the highest taxed community, with no concern for its taxpayers. Let's hope that they all get thrown out in November 2011. Barry Beardsell NO DEMOCRACY Fortunately for Eric Foster, his paycheques enable him not to care too much for what the HST costs regular paid people on dayto-day items. Anyone who is low-income, a senior or a one-income family

notices the increase. Anyone making a major purchase notices the increase. Lucky for Foster he doesn't notice. In an article, Foster is quoted as saying, "If the issue is truly the HST, why not wait until people can vote on it?" Well, why didn't people get to vote on it in the first place? I always was told that Canada was a democracy. Obviously not. N. Doyon JUDGE AND JURY Re: immediate roadside prohibitions and impounding. I thought I might spend a couple of weeks vacationing in a communist country, but it dawned on me that I already live in a communist province. How much more control are we going to allow this government to stuff down our throats? The RCMP already have a bad rap. The new catch phrase for B.C. — guilty until proven innocent. R. Zawada CLEAN UP I participated in a recent roadside clean-up effort with other members of the Foothills

Vander Zalm appears to have jumped into bed with NDP leader Carole James to give birth to the anti-HST campaign, and to hatch a Liberal MLA recall in an effort to gain an NDP majority to form government. If you don’t learn from history, you’re liable to repeat it. What we know is that the last NDP government took B.C. from being a have to a have-not province economically. They lack any economic ability whatsoever. One must admit that the Campbell government has managed the province much better than most in these economically trying times. I do not wish an NDP government on anyone. It seems to me that the anti-HST and recall committees would be much better employed donating their time to helping the poor and unfortunate, cleaning stream beds, raising food and funds for the Salvation Army, planting trees, weeding their gardens, volunteering, and so on – something constructive rather than just pure, unadulterated, wanton negative politicking. C. Wills

Community Association on Silver Star Road, an activity which is, by the way, officially approved and supported by the City of Vernon. The clean-up crew of volunteers was dismayed at the amount of debris which had apparently been casually tossed out of auto windows – take-out coffee cups, empty potato chip bags, DVDs and may other bits and pieces of miscellaneous garbage. It saddened us to see such blatant evidence of casual disrespect toward the environment and our natural heritage. The citizens of Vernon, like those in the rest of our beautiful province, pride themselves on the comparative advantage of their provinces’ natural beauty that makes us the envy of so many in Canada and the rest of the world. Irrespective of our politics, we all espouse green causes and would like the environment to remain pristine. So please consider this the next time you may wish to toss garbage from your car. Be responsible. Don’t permit your children to despoil the environment that they will inherit. Teach them to respect the natural world, even if it is only the side of a road.

Pack your garbage out when hiking or camping. And get involved in your community. Volunteer to help out with roadside clean-ups. Wynn Polnicky

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Beavers are causing a few headaches for Lumby residents and officials. The village is considering how to deal with beavers and their dams along Bessette and Harris creeks. “We’ve had flooding on properties and people have had their properties vandalized by beavers,” said Mayor Kevin Acton of the rodents gnawing on trees. There have been discussions with the Ministry of Environment about beavers but no action will likely be taken until next year. “We could trap them and move them out in the spring,” said Acton. Resident Beda Blain had expressed concern that relocation of the beavers would occur now. “To move the beavers at this time would be just as bad as murdering them outright,” she said in a letter to council. “They will have stored their winter supply of food at the bottom of their pond by now. It would be too late to get enough in another place.” Blain urges council to protect beavers. “They are protectors of wetlands, build ponds for water birds, fish, other, frogs and many other species that require that type of habitat,” she said. “They have given our children a classroom par excellence to observe and learn about nature.” Besides possibly relocating the animals, the village has installed wire mesh around trees to prevent damage. Acton believes the village has a responsibility to address the concerns coming from residents impacted by the beavers. “It probably should be the mandate of the Ministry of Environment but it’s affecting people’s property. There’s flooding of basements and industrial yards,” he said.

A Vernon motorist found out Monday why barricades are put in place around construction areas. Vernon RCMP were called Monday morning at 8:45 to a report of a van in a trench that had been dug across Bella Vista Road by workers at the site. The road was very well marked not to proceed, said police. “The driver of a van, a 27-year-old from Vernon, was driving his parents’ car after being out partying the night before, and thought he could get through the road,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. The man was given an immediate roadside prohibition and will not be driving for 90 days. His folks’ van was impounded for 30 days. The driver also got a ticket for failing to obey a traffic construction sign.

The Corporation of the

Ambitious plan aims at improving skills TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. government’s pledge to bring every grade four student’s literacy and math skills up to grade level is ambitious, but it can be done, says Education Minister George Abbott. Abbott says the government’s latest education goal is already being accomplished in four school districts, South Kootenay, Arrow Lakes, Revelstoke and Fort Nelson. These districts are doing better than the George Abbott provincial average mainly by encouraging old-fashioned family support such as reading to kids in the evening, he said. In his televised address last week, Premier Gordon Campbell said one out of five B.C. students currently fails to meet the grade four achievement level for reading, writing and math skills. Campbell announced three measures designed to eliminate that problem by 2015. ■ Adding 100 more StrongStart early learning centres, for a total of 400 facilities where parents can bring prekindergarten children for programs with an early childhood educator; ■ Introducing individual skills assessment for children entering kindergarten, and; ■ Spending $8.9 million per year for new support and training for

Central Okanagan School District trustees are inviting B.C.’s new education minister to visit local schools. With George Abbott’s appointment to the new portfolio recently, board trustees appear keen to ensure the Central Okanagan hits home with the minister. “I think we need to do this right away so that’s why we’re one of the first,” said trustee Moyra Baxter. “I think it’s really important that we have an opportunity to show him some of the programs we have in the district and talk to him about some of the issues.” The district includes schools in Lake Country.

Minister receives invites

teachers to give “intensive assistance” to students who need it to meet the grade four standards. The government estimates the new StrongStart centres will cost $3 million a year to run, and the kindergarten assessments will cost $1.6 million for the the first year, 2011-12. The plan builds on the expansion of kindergarten to full school days for five-yearolds. Abbott said the gains made by Fort Nelson are particularly notable, because it is a remote northern district with a large number of aboriginal students. He compared the results to those described by U.S. author Malcolm Gladwell for inner-city schools in New York, where poor children did as well as wealthier ones once they had more time and support for their school work. B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert wasn’t impressed by the plan. “Kindergarten teachers already assess all of the children coming into their classes, but we no longer have the specialist teachers in schools to work with them,” Lambert said. “More testing doesn’t help children learn.” NDP leader Carole James praised the StrongStart program, but she said the target for grade four students is an admission of failure by Campbell. “He said that one in five children doesn’t read or write at their grade level,” James said. “That’s after 10 years of Liberals.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you find yourself facing a similar situation you faced once before, stop and think about how it turned out. Make adjustments as to what went wrong, and you won’t repeat any mistakes. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Financial matters should not be treated indifferently at this juncture. Make sure you move cautiously and prudently in order to make certain all of your efforts are founded upon logical assumptions. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Even if it isn’t easy to do, if a friend who has always been there for you asks for help, make the time. It may be your one opportunity to even the score.

INTRODU INTRODUCING

Bridge by Phillip Alder A.N. Onymous said, “It’s easy to stop making mistakes. Just stop having ideas.” This column emanated from an idea I had about yesterday’s deal. In that column, West had a singleton diamond king. South, in three no-trump, took the first trick with dummy’s club queen and ran the diamond 10. This cost the contract because when West shifted to a spade, declarer had to win with dummy’s ace (else East would win the trick and return a club for down two) and take a second diamond finesse. This worked, but West discarded, leaving South with only seven tricks: one spade, three hearts, two diamonds and one club. The winning play was a

low diamond to the eight, nine or jack on the first round of the suit. Then, when in the dummy with the spade ace, declarer could have run the diamond 10, staying in the dummy to take a third finesse in the suit. I started to wonder about this layout. Suppose, after leading a low diamond to the jack, West -- the genius -- played low. (Since he expects South to repeat the finesse, this would usually be the best play.) How should declarer continue now? In the auction, three clubs is artificial, asking opener if he has three spades. South must guess. If East started with honordoubleton, declarer must cash the diamond ace and

play another diamond. But if West has king-doubleton, South must continue with a low diamond. Finally, if West has queen-doubleton, the contract can no longer be made -- declarer had to run the diamond 10 at trick two! Nothing is as easy as it seems.

Films go beyond The Nature of Things Morning Star Staff

At six years old, David Suzuki and his family were taken from their home in Vancouver and sent to a Japanese internment camp in the Slocan Valley. The man, who has become one of Canada’s leading environmentalists and a prominent broadcaster, tells of his ordeal while visiting the remnants of the New Denver camp. The moving scene is just one from the new film, Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie. Directed by Sturla Gunnarsson, the documentary is based, Inconvenient Truth-like, around a lecture the 74-year-old scientist delivers, which he describes as “a distillation of my life and thoughts, my legacy, what I want to say before I die.” It is one of eight documentaries and docu-dramas that will be part of the Vernon Film Society’s eighth annual Docs Plus Fall Film Festival at the Vernon Towne Cinema. The films, which come courtesy of the Film Circuit, will take viewers around the world to hear the fascinating stories of people both well-known and just born. Force of Nature, which made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and recently opened in major Canadian cities, will be the last film screened

LEGACY LECTURE PRODUCTIONS LTD.

Broadcaster/scientist David Suzuki is the subject of the new documentary Force of Nature, one of eight films showing at the Vernon Film Society’s Docs Plus Fall Film Festival Nov. 15 to 18. during the festival, Nov. 18 at 7 p.m. The event kicks off Nov. 15 at 5 p.m. with

Thomas Balmés’ Babies, where the filmmaker follows four babies from the around

the world from birth to their first steps. Variety described it as “an exercise in observational cinema tracking four infants across the globe... impressive in its scope and remarkable in its immediacy.” A re-creation of the brief encounter between two 20th century icons screens Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky tells the story of the fashion maven and the composer, who find each other in France in the 1920s, and begin a love affair to the chagrin of Stravinsky’s sickly wife. Fashion takes another turn when cameras follow audacious entertainer Joan Rivers in the acclaimed documentary, A Piece of Work. The film offers a look at the woman behind the laughter during an eventful year of her life, and screens Nov. 16 at 5 p.m. Australian film Mao’s Last Dancer, the true story of Li Cunxin and his journey from rural China to the bright lights of ballet stardom, shows Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. “Lovely and astounding, Mao’s Last Dancer is a modern epic of arts and ambition triumphing oppression,” wrote The Detroit News. On Nov. 17 at 5 p.m., The Tillman Story tells the true story of American Pat Tillman, who gave up his professional football career to fight in Afghanistan.

Actress salutes Mackie boys Morning Star Staff

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Actress Christine Pilgrim plays Mrs. Grace Mackie and entertains visitors with stories of the war years at the Mackie Lake House on Remembrance Day.

Vernon actress Christine Pilgrim has brushed down her tunic and brushed up her songs and stories for her one-woman show, We’ll Meet Again, at Coldstream’s Mackie Lake House on Remembrance Day. Pilgrim will perform this interactive, often funny, sometimes saucy, but always thought-provoking onehour show after a delicious dinner served in military manner, catered by The Other Company and accompanied by Betty Kemper at the piano. The Mackie Lake House hosts the Nov. 11 evening to honour the late Paddy Mackie, who served in the Canadian Navy in the Second World War, and who after he died in 1999, left his home for the general public to enjoy. Pilgrim will also honour Mackie’s brothers John, a fighter pilot with the Royal Air Force, and Geoffrey, who served with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Both lost their lives in the war. Once she has received guests in the guise of the Mackie boys’ mother, Grace Mackie, with a complimentary glass of sherry, Pilgrim will disappear to re-emerge later as one of the “boys” who fought at the front in First World War. Other characters will surface as the evening proceeds. “We’ll Meet Again is presented in the style of British Music Hall, a vaudeville-type genre that was in its heyday

around the time of the First World War,” said Pilgrim, adding she encourages audience participation for anyone who wants to sing along. “Parts of it are based on the musical O It’s A Lovely War, first produced in London’s East End by Joan Littlewood and later made into a movie by Richard Attenborough.” Pilgrim worked with Littlewood in two productions soon after graduating from drama school in London, England. A former a stand-up comic in her native Britain and Europe, Pilgrim has performed in productions from The Beggar’s Opera to television comedies such as The Benny Hill Show. Since moving to Canada in 1992, she has focused more on Canadian history and has created several one-woman shows geared mainly for children. They include one about local pioneer Catherine Schubert and another based on the life of artist Emily Carr. Many of Pilgrim’s characters, from her old-fashioned schoolma’am to Queen Elizabeth II, are local favourites. The Mackie Lake House is located at 7604 Kidston Rd. in Coldstream. Dinner starts at 7 p.m. with cocktails served at 6.30 p.m. Advance bookings only, available at Ticket Seller, 250-549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

Swing away with these masters DVOIRA YANOVSKY Vernon Film Society

Swing, swing, swing with beloved Shuswap saxophone master Sandy Cameron and his quintet, featuring Don Clark, at the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. The quintet includes some of the finest jazz musicians performing today including Clark on trumpet, Don Ross on piano, Bill Lockie on bass and Brian Pratt-Johnson on drums. The band will perform many well-known standards in a variety of styles including Dixieland, swing, bebop, and funk, as well as some beautiful ballads and a few Clark originals. “We will be taking a heads-up approach involving group and individual improvisation, using lead sheets rather than written arrangements,” said Cameron. “Musical collaboration is, as far as I’m concerned, most important in the performance of any music group.” A retired teacher from the Shuswap school district, Cameron has almost 60 years of performing under his belt, starting with Arthur Delamont’s

Active in the local jazz scene, Cameron coordinates the monthly Shuswap Art Gallery Association (SAGA) Jazz Club events and gigged recently with the Cactus Jazz Band at the Penticton Pentastic Jazz Festival. “My own style is a work in progress,” said Cameron. “Some favourite players I listen to are Campbell Ryga, Mike Allen, James Danderfer and Ross Taggart.” Cameron is particularly anticipating the Vernon gig. “I’m really looking forward to presenting the excellent trumpet playing of Don Clark to the Vernon Jazz Club.”

Clark has been performing, arranging, and composing on the West Coast since the early 1960s. He was a member of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and spent 22 years with the CBC Chamber Orchestra in Vancouver. As a freelance studio musician, Clark worked on hundreds of radio and television shows, including a nine-year stint as leader, arranger, and composer of music for

the comic CBC series Dr. Bundolo’s Pandemonium Medicine Show. Clark has recorded with Ella Fitzgerald, band leader Bobby Hales, Dave Robbins, the Pacific Salt Jazz Sextet and Fraser MacPherson, to name just a few. Clark describes his style as accessible. “I’m what some people call a mainstream player –– not far out nor experimental, but listenable to by many. In the early years I listened to a lot of Louis Armstrong, Bobby Hackett, Miles Davis, Clifford Brown and Dizzy Gillespie.” Like Cameron, Clark relishes the thrill of improvising with the band. “We haven’t played a lot together, so I feel the experience will be fresh. Live jazz is not a produced CD –– the unknowable is exciting and spontaneous.” Ross has performed many times for Vernon

Uncovering the truth Continued from page A19 The film shows Tillman’s family back at home as they attempt to reveal the truth about his death. Another true story is acted out in Norwegian film Max Manus, a historical epic that follows one of Europe’s most celebrated Second World War resistance fighters. It shows Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. On Nov. 18 at 5 p.m., Last Train Home, a Canada/China/U.K. co-production, follows a couple who leave their children behind in their rural village in China’s Sichuan province to the industrial city of Guangdong, where they take jobs in a textile factory. The New York Post called it “a startling look at the devastating human cost of China’s newfound embrace of capitalism.” Passes are not available for the festival,

Folk visit from the Island Singer/songwriters meet in Armstrong on respective tours Morning Star Staff

From the land of Anne of Green Gables and Stompin’ Tom Connors come singer-songwriters Catherine MacLellan and John Connolly. The Prince Edward Island artists are each currently touring out west and will meet at the crossroads when they perform at the Armstrong Inn Nov. 13. The show marks the only occasion where the two will play together on their respective tours. Connolly recently traveled to Nashville to record his newest album, The Wind, with legendary Nova Scotia producer Brian Ahern (Emmy Lou Harris, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash.) “I started going to Nashville in 2009 to work on the craft of songwriting,” he said. “I approached Brian while there because I loved his work as a producer. We struck up a friendship and when the time came to record a new album, he opened the doors of his studio to me. It was an incredible experience working with Brian and his longtime engineer, Donivan Cowart, in his home studio in Nashville.” Connolly has received three Music PEI awards and has shared the stage with Joel Plaskett, Cuff The Duke and Gordie Sampson. MacLellan, in turn, recently picked up two 2010 East Coast Music awards for female vocalist and folk recording of the year as well as four 2010 Music PEI awards. Voted as the critics’ favourite new discovery by Penguin Eggs Magazine, she was also named solo artist of the

Coun. Duane Ophus joined the board as a second voting representative from the Central Okanagan Regional District, because it is much larger than the other three regional districts, and contributes a correspondingly larger amount to the total budget. Chairman Kevin Flynn said he’s always felt it was unfair that growers contributed 40 to 45 per cent of the revenue to the program in parcel taxes, yet they had no vote on the board. As well, he said the expertise of industry should have

a say at the board table, and should be given a vote as well. Ultimately, financial decisions still must be made by a majority of the board, represented by more regional district representatives than fruit growers, he noted. Board members also voted to ask the provincial government for changes to the legislation governing the SIR program that would prevent a regional district from withdrawing from the program. Allan Neilson-Welch, a local government policy consultant, told board members the pro-

vincial government can put a program on a list of those where participants cannot withdraw from the service. The City of Vernon has occasionally discussed withdrawal from the program. However, because of the program’s nature, it must retain its integrity in order to remain viable, noted NeilsonWelch. The SIR is an area-wide program to control codling moth, a non-native pest of pomme fruit such as apples and pears, without the use of chemical pesticides.

Sports B Snakesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; overtime woes continue EDITOR: Kevin MitchellssSPORTS VERNONMORNINGSTARCOM

Morning Star Staff

As the new-look Vernon Vipers head into the second third of the B.C. Hockey League season, they have learned a few things about their identity. They are a speedy team built on a quick transition and relentless forecheck. The Vipers also struggle in overtime â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lost 3-2 to the Victoria Grizzlies Saturday night at Wesbild Centre for their fourth OT loss â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and their powerplay needs some tweaking. Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach Mark Ferner, who often goes with three forwards and one d-man in overtime, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the point in settling for a tie, even if it means they might be a little more exposed defensively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to get an extra point. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to sit back, especially at home,â&#x20AC;? he said. After 21 BCHL games, Ferner believes his young squad is a little ahead of expectations in terms of development, and he likes the effort he is seeing on a nightly basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the way our group is playing right now,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being accountable for your work. Your work ethic is not negotiable. We expect guys to empty the tank

every night, and for the most part they are.â&#x20AC;? Vernon, tied for second spot in the Interior with Trail Smoke Eaters, at 11-5-1-4, heads to Merritt Friday night before hosting the Prince George Spruce Kings Saturday night. The Penticton Vees lead the conference by two points. Said Ferner: â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we found out, anybody can beat anybody. There are no freebies this year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in a lot of close games and that is a very good thing for our group.â&#x20AC;? The Grizzlies got a 40-save showing from goalie Matt Ginn, who stoned Dylan Walchuk, Malcolm Lyles and Bryce Kakoske in the overtime. Ginn, 19, is a Lindsay, Ont. product who played for Team Canada East in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Junior A Hockey Challenge in Summerside, PEI. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has been our rock all year, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty special,â&#x20AC;? said Victoria assistant coach Brad Cook, who helped the Vernon Vipers win the 1996 Royal Bank Cup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have some well-deserved rest I think.â&#x20AC;? Ginn made 34 saves Friday night as the Grizz stopped the host

Vernon Vipers' Aaron Hadley attempts to keep Victoria Grizzlies' Taylor Love off the puck during BCHL hockey action Saturday at Wesbild Centre. Trail Smoke Eaters 5-2, and came in to relieve rookie Tanner McGaw after the sixth Salmon Arm goal in a 10-7 loss Wednesday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a helluva player,â&#x20AC;? said d-man Taylor Love, traded to

the Grizzlies by Vernon earlier in October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent and that was a good win.â&#x20AC;? Lyles and Mike Zalewsky for the Vipers, and Joel Lowry and Madison Dias for the Grizzlies,

traded regulation goals before 1,900 fans. Victoria d-man Sean Robertson scored his second goal of the season on a backhander that fooled Blake Voth at 3:58 of double overtime. Love, a California product with 2-3-5 in 11 games with Victoria, gave the Grizzlies a brief scouting report on the Snakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just told them they work hard, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the hardest-working teams in the Interior Conference and will battle all the way through the third period.â&#x20AC;? On the move to Victoria, Love said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My role is just to be a physical guy, make a good first pass and battle hard...Yes, I was disappointed (with the trade), but everything happens for a reason and things are working out. I like it in Victoria.â&#x20AC;? Cook, a married father of two who played 12 years of minor pro, also works as head coach with the hockey academy at Spectrum Secondary in Victoria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was nice to come in during hockey season and it was nice to see that banner that we won in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;96,â&#x20AC;? said Cook, a smooth-skating d-man in his day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never saw it before. What a great atmosphere here. We were a tired bunch here and so were they. It was two teams trying to gut it out and what a fun way to finish.â&#x20AC;?

The Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers grounded the Kamloops Blazers 10-3 in Okanagan Mainline Tier 1 Midget Hockey League action Saturday night at Civic Arena. A top-shelf marker by Ryan Scheidt, a seeing-eye wrister from defenceman Joshua Vetter and goals by Chris Nonis, Trevor Pickett and Colton Thibault staked the Vipers to a 5-1 lead after 20 minutes. Nick Pantaleo and Thibault connected in the second as the Vipers held off a Blazers charge and took a 7-3 secondperiod lead. The frustrated Blazers got into penalty trouble in the third and the Vipers capitalized with powerplay markers by Ethan Kalugin and defenceman Justin Mitchell. Brett Hawrys set up Kalugin's blast for his third assist of the night, while Nonis closed out the scoring with his second goal of the game. Pickett, Hawrys, Thibault and Scheidt are all tied for

third spot in Midget Tier 1 league scoring with seven points apiece. "We learned a lot from last week and played a more complete game," said head coach Jim Armstrong. "The boys competed hard and know there's still a lot of work to do but it's nice to get a positive result from all the hard work they've put into practice." The Vernon Sun Valley Source For Sports Renegades lost 12-1 to Kelowna Pursuit of Excellence in Bantam Tier 1 action. Mitchell Lukacs scored for the Renegades. The Vernon Machine Bantam AA Vipers opened a threegame home stand Friday night with a hard fought 6-3 loss to Kelowna. Scott Latwat, Jorden Dewing and Logan Revell handled the Vipers' offence. The next night, the Vipers lost 11-0 to the Kamloops Blazers, giving up seven powerplay goals. The Snakes played an inspired game on Sunday after-

Chapman also rushed for 83 yards on the day. Trey Isaac was good on all three convert attempts. "Our linemen, Carson

Labrecque, Zack Barton, Mariah Klein, Jakob Laflamme-Yonkman, and Jett Carey, all played a solid game for us," said Vernon line coach Cid Plouffe. "And this game was a lot closer than the score indicates." On defence, Jonah Anstey registered eight tackles followed by Brayden Wiebe with six and Nyla McPherson and Connor Kamman with four apiece. Luke Nelson, Jacob Mayner, Nolan Wessels and Bryce Sorensen also contributed to the defence. "The Dragons have a very good passing game," said Maruaders' defensive coach Andy Stephansson. "They were able to get some favourable match ups against us and then exploit them, but tomorrow is another day." The Marauders have scored 50 of the 72 points allowed by the Dragons. Vernon visits the West

Sonics secure top seed Morning Star Staff

The Seaton Sonics swept the MEI Eagles of Clearbrook 2-0 (25-21, 25-14) to win the George Elliot Coyotes Invitational Senior AA Boys Volleyball Tournament and unseat the Eagles as the No. 1 team in the province. MEI had been the top-ranked school for the past six weeks ahead of Seaton. "We both were missing key starting players so no one had an edge," said Sonic head coach Doug Kozak. "I'm sure we made them over-confident while they were watching us struggle our way through the pool play and playoff round. “It's tough to imagine that we could be close to the same team after all-star Marco Arnold injured his knee at practice this week, but when I saw how hard the boys worked I knew we would be OK.” Brad Kievit and Max Belfort were steady in some high-pressure situations throughout the playoffs, and with Sean Bonnett back into the libero, the Sonics started to roll. "He is undoubtedly the best libero in the province," said Kozak. "Sean willingly punishes his body each tournament so our team has the killer defence and passing we need to come out on top. I'm sure his mom has given up on trying to get all the blood out of his uniform after the tournaments." Keenan Wright and Jaydon Ward provided exceptional defensive plays against MEI. Outside hitters Alex Nolan and Conner

Kozak (tourney all-star) handled the bulk of sets from MVP Adam Tishenko. The Vernon Christian School Royals placed third in their home senior A boys volleyball tournament, stuffing the Clearwater Raiders 2-0 (25-22, 25-23) in the bronze-medal match. The Royals limited the Raiders to four attack points while Tyrell Hoogland made key blocks and Connor Yskes supplied three attack kills. Jason VanBoven supplied strong serving and back row defensive play, serving the last two points for the victory. Adam McCaffrey played well in the backcourt as defensive support and setter Aaron Spence provided the Royals with a balanced attack and served up four aces. The Royals finished the round-robin Saturday morning by losing in straight sets to the Immaculata Mustangs of Kelowna. Vernon Christian met the Mustangs again in the semifinals later that afternoon, and played a much stronger defensive game. Captain Yskes led the Knights with several key blocks and kills in a thrilling 2-1 loss (23-25, 25-22, 15-10). Both Branden Hoogendoorn and Daniel Koch kept many rallies alive with several key digs and hits from the left side, while Sam Koch led the offence with 17 kills from both the left and right sides for the tourney. The Kelowna Christian Knights defeated Immaculata 2-1 (23-25, 25-20,15-12) in the final. Vernon Christian is in an Abbotsford tourney this weekend.

Knights hit skid Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan Knights could accept a pair of losses to the powerful Revelstoke Grizzlies. However, losing 5-1 to the Kamloops Storm Saturday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre was not anticipated. The Knights, who opened the weekend by falling 7-1 Friday night in Revelstoke, lost 7-4 to the defending Kootenay International Junior Hockey League champion Grizz Sunday afternoon in Armstrong. “We just haven’t been playing our game and not been working as hard as we need to, as well as not sticking to our game-plan,” said second-year forward Colin Minardi. The 10-8 Knights trailed the Storm 5-0 before Brendan Jost spoiled Lynden Stanwood’s shutout bid with 3:04 left. The Storm, who got 1+2 from Tyler Jackson, moved to 7-100-2, while the Knights dropped to 10-8 in the Shuswap Division. “It was frustrating to lose by that many goals and nothing was going right as penalties cost us,” added Minardi. Laine Keyes scored at even-strength Sunday, while Eric Chore, Cory Bulach and Brodie Clark added powerplay goals in a 2:08 span for the Knights, who visit Kelowna Chiefs Friday.

Skiers have a ‘Ball’ at Silver Star

Natural Solutions For Your Health Problems

Morning Star Staff

Dining and dancing at Silver Star Mountain Resort is a fun way to spend an evening and on Nov. 19, a great way to benefit Silver Star Adaptive Snow Sports. The second annual Skiers Ball takes place at The Den Bistro and Bar. This fundraiser for Silver Star Adaptive Snow Sports includes a welcome drink, threecourse gourmet dinner, live entertainment by Jessie Jones, a silent auction and door prizes. “This event was a huge success last year, the local residents and businesses were very supportive. The 60 guests had a great time celebrating the start of the ski season,” said Britta Gretzmacher, the race team coordinator for SSASS. “We are very fortunate to have Silver Star Mountain Resort standing behind us and their ongoing support is a crucial factor in the success of our program.” More than $9,000 was raised at the inaugural ball last year and used to buy needed equipment for the local disabled skiers. Out of the 30 regular students, nine are in the Race Program. Travel costs to competitions are high and a custommade sit ski ranges anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000. “We like to see the 30 children and adults, who have a variety of physical and mental challenges, in the program have the opportunity to get out in the fresh air and enjoy the mountain along with the rest of the community. Some participants learn, or relearn, after an injury to ski and are then able to continue to ski with their families and friends,” said Gretzmacher One of the accolades for SSASS comes from Josh Dueck, Paralympian and Olympic Silver Medalist, who after a freak ski accident that left him paralyzed, learned to ski again with the help of one of the instructors of SSASS. He is now an inspiration to the young disabled ski racers. “Our hope is to raise over $10,000

Elementary students win by a landslide When Vernon Christian School students gave a challenge to their teachers, they rose to the occasion — on to the roof Morning Star Staff

The 130 students at the Vernon Christian Elementary School challenged the male teachers of the school in conjunction with celebrating the 30th anniversary of the annual Terry Fox Run. When Terry had to stop his inaugural run for cancer research in 1980, he had run a total of 3,339 miles. On this 30th anniversary of Terry’s run, the students challenged the male teachers to sleep overnight on the roof of the school, if the students could raise $3,339, one dollar symbolizing each mile Terry had run. History was made, and the students not only raised the challenge amount of $3,339, they surpassed it to reach $6,590.80, only $88 shy of doubling the challenge amount. Principal Steve Onsorge, learning assistance teacher Andy Overend and Grade 3 teacher Jay Donaldson were headed for a night on the roof overlooking the damp, foggy mist of Swan Lake and the echoing drone of Highway 97’s non-stop traffic. It was not a warm night and the men were even ambushed by pranksters throwing water balloons at them in the latenight hours, as they watched a movie projected on the outside wall of the gymnasium. “The chilly, sleepless night was more than worth the sacrifice of our warm beds and dry pajamas for the cause of cancer research,” said Onsorge. Students and staff would like to extend a wonderful bouquet

The event ended with the campers greeting the students from the roof, as they arrived for class Oct. 1. “Thanks to all of the family, friends and neighbors who

generously sponsored the VCS students, enabling them to raise such a worthwhile amount for the cause of cancer research.” The male staff members are already advising the students on a creative challenge for the female staff to accept for the 2011 Terry Fox Run next year.

Workshop offers key to finding your voice Morning Star Staff

Joan McIntyre presents her singing workshop, Finding Your Own Voice. “Besides being fun, singing is a natural, therapeutic, healing release which many of us deny ourselves. Some of us have been told we can’t sing and don’t; others have simply decided somewhere along life’s path that they had no voice and shut up,” said McIntyre, a professional singer who believes in Joan McIntyre the power of singing to lead people to self-discovery, new confidence and the thrill of conquering fears which lead to change in all areas of life. “Singing is one of the most satisfying modes of self-expression. Together we will discover the joys of singing,” said McIntyre.

Jack oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lanterns 4BWJOH can be composted JTUIF new sexy. Morning Star Staff

Halloween has come and gone and your Jack oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lantern is starting to look more sad than scary. Lake Country residents should remember it can be reincarnated. Instead of throwing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jackâ&#x20AC;? into the garbage, consider composting your Halloween pumpkin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pumpkins are rich in nitrogen, a necessary part of your composterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet,â&#x20AC;? said Rae Stewart, a waste reduction facilitator with the Central Okanagan Regional District. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simply chop up your pumpkin into smaller pieces and toss it into your backyard composter with some fall leaves. It will break down nicely to become a nutrient rich soil amendment you can put on your garden or flower beds next spring.â&#x20AC;? It is estimated that 25,000, or about nine tonnes of pumpkins will be disposed of this fall within CORD. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compost, you can include your pumpkin in your next yard waste pick up. Simply place your pumpkin in your wheeled cart with the green lid, and it will be picked up on your regular yard waste collection day.

Check your Living Greener calendar for yard waste pickup schedules in your area. Lake Country residents can also take their pumpkin to Glenmore landfill free of charge, along with grass, leaves, pine needles, and prunings up to 20 centimeters in diameter. The free drop-off for yard waste up to 250 kilograms runs year round. For more information on Lake Country composting or yard waste collection programs, go to regionaldistrict.com or call 250469-6250.

Q: A:

Why use a Travel Professional ? We get asked quite often by potential clients why they should book their travel with us versus an online booking company.

Well my answers are quite simple. We are a 1 Stop Shopping Experience. If you book through a travel agent all you have to do is make 1 call, we have the resources at our ďŹ ngertips to assist with all your travel needs. Look to us to provide the best overall solution to your individual travel needs. Ask us tons of questions, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll provide you with the answers. This includes travel dates, location of accommodation or stateroom, quality of accommodations, cancellation policies, recreational facilities. Saving money isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about price. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more about value. If the hotel was not the right location, if the cruise line was not the right cruise line, if the golf course was not the right golf course, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how much you saved. One can save a ton of money and be miserable or spend a little more to be in heaven. A travel professional can recommend relevant offerings and provide cost saving ideas. Nobody wants to pay more than necessary, so an agent will help you ďŹ nd the best value without the sacriďŹ ces of a cheap trip. Our agents know what it takes to coordinate a great vacation that is the best value for you.

Explain Branding Branding has three main parts: 1. Who you are 2. What you do 3. What makes you unique

In essence branding is the expectation that your customers (and target market) have about you, your company and/or its products and services. A brand is not just a logo; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a process that is evolved over time through consistency and strategy. In very general a brand can include any combination of the following elements: logo, name, slogan, tagline, image, colour, smell, feel and more. Curious on how your brand stacks up against others? Let us help you evaluate your brand awareness and strength - contact us via email to set up a brand evaluation.

Q: A:

When does my Lender need Mortgage Loan Insurance and Who pays for it?

There are many types of fungus and/or mold that can thrive indoors under the right conditions. How people react to exposure varies greatly among individuals. Headaches, nausea, nosebleeds, respiratory problems, plus other ďŹ&#x201A;u like symptoms are reactions many people experience. Certain species of mold and their spores are known carcinogens. Children and elderly people are often more likely to have strong reactions to exposure. Most mildews and molds do not need light or oxygen to survive and are often found in hidden places, such as attics and crawlspaces.

Purchasing & Marketing Director, CertiďŹ ed Interior Decorator

What is an INDUCTION range?

An induction range is now available with an induction cook top, true convection oven and warming drawer all for the same price as a standard induction cook top. The induction cook top boils water faster than gas and twice as fast an electric cook top. With this product you can cook with the control of gas cooking, and yet the cook top stays cool! You can physically put your had on the surface of the cook top right after you boil water. How is this possible? Induction cooking uses magnetism to heat cookware so only the cookware is heated, not the surface. This type of surface is also easy to keep clean. If a pot were to boil over, the contents would not stick onto the surface because there is no heat. So if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a range that cooks like gas, and is easy to keep cleanâ&#x20AC;Śthe induction range is for you!

CertiďŹ ed Personal Trainer

Cardio does burn fat if you remain within 60-70% of your max, but what matters most is how many calories you burn. We tend to burn more calories in 30 minutes of cardio work, compared to one-third to half as many in 30 minutes of resistance training. However, lifting weights builds muscleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this is key. Muscles are our engines and the big calorie burners in our bodies. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn, even at rest. So although cardio is great for heart health, lifting weights is best for weight loss, slimming, and trimming.

Typically lenders will require mortgage loan insurance if a borrower has a down payment of less than 20% of the purchase price of the home. By protecting lenders against borrower default CMHC mortgage loan insurance creates an opportunity for Canadians to realize their dreams of homeownership. And when you buy your home sooner you grow equity faster and beneďŹ t from interest rates that are comparable to someone buying with a 20% down payment. Like any other kind of insurance, there are premiums to be paid. The lender typically passes on the cost of insurance to the borrower. The premiums can be paid up front in a lump sum or blended in with your mortgage loan payments.

CertiďŹ ed Home Inspector What are the most common health problems associated with exposure to mold in my home?

Elizabeth Densmore

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is how much to retire and when should I start? I wish there was a simple answer, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an easy question. The younger you are, the harder it is to calculate because so much can change in terms of your situation and with things like taxes and economic conditions over the next thirty or so years. In situations like this, you should know that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably need close to as much income in retirement as you need now (adjusted for inďŹ&#x201A;ation of course). As you get older and retirement get closer, you really need to sit down and start to project your expenses. You should have a rough idea of whether or not youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be receiving a pension, what your old age pension check will be, and realistically start thinking about life expectancy and your retirement goals.

EVA (CAMERON) ALBERT FEB.19, 1930 - OCT. 29, 2010

Eva Helen Pukari was born in Rock Point, Sask. to Finnish immigrant parents Axel and Olga Pukari, the eldest of 4 children. Sadly, her father passed away in 1940 when she was only 10, making life difÂżcult for her family. At the age of 17, Eva left her family in Saskatchewan and made her way to Vancouver, followed in succession by Solsqua (Sicamous), Kelowna and Revelstoke where she worked at Queen Victoria Hospital. November 7th, 1950 she married Ken Cameron, a Canadian PaciÂżc Âżreman./engineer. They had 2 daughters, Elaine and Karen. Eva and Ken remained in Revelstoke until May 1979 when Ken could hold a job on the Vernon Switcher. They bought a home in Vernon. Ken retired from CP in October 1983 and they enjoyed their retirement travelling, dancing, golf and horseshoes until Ken passed away in May 1992. Eva remained in Vernon, and sure enough, love once again appeared in her life in 1993 in the form of Ervin Albert. They married July 14th, 1995 and enjoyed many travels and adventures. Left to mourn her passing, loving husband Ervin Albert, daughters Elaine (Tim) Buchanan and Karen (Verne) Kozmick, stepson George (Georgine) Albert, brother Roy Pukari (Carolyn), granddaughters Kim (Pascal) Blommestein and Heather Cretelli (Ben Parkin); and grandsons Garrett Kozmick (Angeline Gagnon) ; Ryan (Jeanelle) Cretelli and Steven Albert; 8 great-grandchildren; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Predeceased by her father Axel in 1940, brother George in 1958, brother Bruno in 1979, mother Olga in 1986 and 1st husband Ken in 1992. Always a devoted wife and loving mother, she became â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Super Nanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; when her grand-children arrived on the scene â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they were always very special to her. Eva loved animals and had a passion for horses that lasted throughout her lifetime. She loved sports, softball, badminton, curling, golÂżng, ,horseback riding, cross-country skiing, horse-shoes, bowling and dancing-Âżrst with Ken and the dancing continued on with Ervin. She was creative and artistically talented-she could do anything and do it well-gardening, baking, snow sculpture, sewing, photography, embroidery, crochet, pottery and sculpture, china painting, paper crafts, drawing, painting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just to name a few of her artistic pursuits.

In Vernon, she was a member of the Horse-Shoe club, curling club, Happy Dancers, Halina Pattern Dancers, Halina Seniors Centre and bowling leagues. Her home was always open and often provided for many family and friends.Eva also loved camping and travelling. She visited Finland twice, Âżrst with her mother in 1968 and then with Ken and her brother Roy and his wife in 1975 to visit and connect with relatives. Other travels included Hawaii, Puerto Vallarta, Palm Springs and Disneyland, Yuma, Carribean Cruise, Las Vegas, Reno, Eastern Canada, Branson, and many trips in the motor home with Ervin to horse-shoe tournaments and music festivals, fall fairs, Seniors Games, Alaska, Yukon and NWT and family get-togethers in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

KLEIN, Herbert "Herb" Edgar May 24, 1933 - October 27, 2010

After a hopeful and focused 3 year effort to heal a pancreatic cancer, Herb passed away at home with Carroll in the early morning of October 27, 2010. We hope he was hitting a great golf shot in his dreams! Herb was predeceased by his parents David and Alvine; and by his two sisters Margaret and Laura. Herb is survived by his wife Carroll; his children Michelle (George), Renee and David (Suzanne); his grandson Eli; his sister Sue Dale in Abbotsford; his nephew David Campion in Victoria; and Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister-in-law Laura Coventry in Nelson. Herb grew up on his family farm in the Rosemont area of Nelson, BC as the only boy among three sisters. His German immigrant parents' values and daily farm chores contributed to a strong work ethic and a commitment to excellence that was to serve him well in his life. He focused early in life on two loves - music and golf. As a young boy, he earned money hunting golf balls and later caddying. He played many instruments, but is best remembered for his touch on the piano and his accompaniment of his (soon to be) wife Carroll, and other singers. Herb and Carroll were married in 1957 and moved to Chetwynd, BC where Herb had a job as principal of the 2 room school. They later moved back to Nelson for several years and then settled their young family ďŹ nally in Vernon in 1966. Herb taught elementary, high school and college through his teaching career in Vernon, including several years as an associate of Simon Frazer University Professional Development (teacher training) program. He retired early to pursue his love of golf, and became the ďŹ rst Canadian to be accepted into the Maltby Clubmaker training school. He started Gemini Golf and for over 30 years got great joy out of helping golfers hit a better shot. Herb and Carroll recently moved back to Nelson where they had just ďŹ nished renovating a house on their lake property. In addition to working tirelessly to improve his skills at whatever he was doing, Herb was quick to laugh and enjoyed a good story or joke. He was an avid reader and was always learning some new fact that he loved to share with anyone who was interested. Herb was very thankful for all the excellent medical people he met both in Vernon and Nelson. A Celebration of Life will be held at Vernon Christian Fellowship (4506 29 Street, Vernon BC) on Friday November 5, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. Rick Corak ofďŹ ciating. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations may be made to the Hospital Foundation in Vernon or Nelson. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family via email: vernon@pafs.net. Arrangements entrusted to PERSONAL ALTERNATIVE FUNERAL SERVICES Vernon 250-558-0866 and Armstrong 250-546-7237
