A teen with a cell phone was able to guide a police service dog handler and his canine companion to where she and her two siblings could be found after becoming lost Monday afternoon. Vernon RCMP were alerted to the incident after stopping a speeding vehicle on Highway 97, near College Way, shortly after 1 p.m. â€œThe driver reported that her three children, aged 13, eight and two, were lost in

The woman told police the children had been gone for about an hour. Police made contact with the teen via cell phone. â€œThe teen gave us a brief description of her location and some landmarks to assist in the search,â€? said Molendyk, adding the task wasnâ€™t that easy for the police dog handler

The launch of a new season comes at the same time that the provincial government is investing $1.4 million in a marketing campaign to support B.C.’s winter tourism industry. “It’s great to have the ministry working for all of the resorts,” said Baycroft. Tourism B.C. will use search engine marketing, social media, public relations and online advertising to attract visitors from across Canada and the U.S. “There’s a big population of skiers in California and Seattle. Those are potential growth sectors for us,” said Baycroft. “Toronto is also a great market and there are lots of skiers on the Prairies that want to come and experience us.”
Bookings from Australia are also increasing at Silver Star. As part of the campaign, visitors to www. HelloBC.com, who click on Ski B.C. Now, can check out special offers, sign up for special offer e-mails, order a B.C. ski guide and learn about snow conditions. There’s also an online contest at www. BCSkiGames.com for a five-day ski vacation for one winner and seven friends to one of B.C.’s resorts. “Building B.C.’s tourism brand and marketing the province as one of the world’s top, all-season tourist destinations continues to be a high priority for our government,” said Tourism Minister Margaret MacDiarmid in a release.

Fun Facts For the Week of November 17 - November 22, 2010 (or while quantities last) A persimmon is a beautiful and under-appreciated fruit that may often be mistaken for some odd type of tomato. Persimmons are topped with a deep green, caplike stem and leaves with a skin that’s a vibrant orangey colour to match the juicy, sweet ﬂesh within. Persimmon trees grow throughout North America, and Asia. Persimmons are full of vitamins A and C. Eat one raw persimmon, for instance, and you’ll get more than half of your recommended Vitamin A for the day. Persimmons also provide 6 grams of ﬁbre per fruit, nearly a quarter of the amount you need daily.

Excessive speeder pulled over ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A Lake Country man was in a hurry to get through Coldstream Sunday morning. Two Vernon RCMP plainclothes officers observed a vehicle travelling at a very high rate of speed eastbound on Kalamalka Road at 8:30 a.m. near Friesen’s Country Tyme Gardens. “Our officers paced, or followed, the car, in lawful execution of their duty, and paced the offending vehicle at 130 km/h in a 50 km/h zone,” said RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “Our officers also observed that the driver failed to stop at the stop sign at Highway 6 and
Kalamalka Road.” Eventually, the vehicle did pull over at Coldstream Ranch, and the driver and only occupant of the vehicle, a 49-year-old man, told officers he knew he was speeding. He did produce a valid driver’s licence. Police advised the man he was doing 80 km/h more than the clearly posted speed limit, and issued him a violation ticket for excessive speeding. That means, the man’s vehicle is now impounded for seven days under the new excessive speed legislation. He was also given a ticket for failing to stop at a stop sign.

Mayor Kevin Acton. something and people Acton admits that in the community want he is frustrated over to know what’s going the provincial on.” government’s But while handling of further action the matter on a prison since the vilmay be stalled, lage initiated the village is discussions a moving ahead year ago. with ways to “This is our increase ecothird solicitor nomic develKevin Acton general we’ve opment. communicat“I really ed with and there’s still hope we strike a comno solid information,” mittee and develop a he said. plan,” said Acton.

residents could present possible ways of creating jobs, and Acton says a formal process is the logical next step. “We need people from all points of view involved,” he said. However, determining what economic development initiative to pursue could take some time. “It seems like it’s a challenge to have everyone agree on what’s best for Lumby — it’s too loud or too scary,” said Acton. “There’s resistance
MLA questions recall motives RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster continues to insist recall legislation is being abused. Fight HST organizers have identified five Liberal MLAs they will try and remove from office, starting with Ida Chong, science and universities minister. “The purpose of the recall legislation was to recall MLAs not doing their job,” said Foster. “It was never to bring the government down.” The recall campaign is being led by former Social Credit premier Bill Vander Zalm, and Foster believes opposition to the government, and not the harmonized sales tax, is the actual motive behind the effort. “Everyone in the province is being given the right to vote on the HST (in fall 2011 referendum),” said Foster. “It’s not being done on his (Vander Zalm) timeline so this is what it’s all about.” The recall campaign in Chong’s Oak BayGordon Head constituency will begin Nov. 22. The other ridings that could follow include Comox Valley, Saanich North, Kamloops North and Cariboo-Chilcotin. Fig ht HST announced in September that 18 MLAs could be the target of recall campaigns. Foster is one of them.
“It was never to bring the government down.” — Eric Foster “Eric’s riding jumped dramatically this week. We’ve got a new organizer there, who was able to bring on 60 to 70 new canvassers this week,” Chris Delaney, a provincial co-ordinator, told The Morning Star. “My sense is that had we been better orga-
nized there from the beginning, Vernon may have been one of the prime targets.” Delaney believes the final outcome in the other constituencies will dictate what could happen in VernonMonashee. “If the HST is still
here come April, then Vernon will get a chance to go to recall with Fight HST.” Foster believes the Liberals will rally against the recall campaigns. “People need to know that if recall is successful, it’s a costly proposition to have byelections,” he said. “If they recall enough government MLAs, the NDP will form government. People need to ask (NDP leader) Carole James if she’ll remove the HST. If the tax is still there, what have you achieved except spend a bunch of money.”

t’s unfortunate politics had to overshadow the impending departure of Vernon’s fire chief. Instead of focusing on Jeff Carlisle as a leader, the union representing full-time firefighters took a shot at elected officials. “Chief Carlisle is obviously an educated and talented person and when he continually ran into road blocks put up for him by city council, he exercised his options to go somewhere else where they’re more progressive,” said Brent Bond, president of the Vernon Richard Rolke Professional Firefighters Association. Such comments are understandable as Carlisle had the union’s vote of confidence, and it was perhaps needing someone to blame for his move to Kelowna. But would it have not been better to shelve the differences between the union and council, and reflect on Carlisle’s actions at the fire hall since 2008? Among them has been updating the dispatch program and investigating underserved areas like Predator Ridge. Carlisle probably had one of the best working relationships between a chief and the union in 20 years. I suspect the primary roadblock the union refers to is council’s decision not to support Carlisle’s plan for full-time firefighters at the Okanagan Landing hall as a way of addressing response times. It was a concept the association very publicly endorsed. But keep in mind that city staff are only

there to provide recommendations and information to the politicians. Council is under no obligation to rubber-stamp reports, and must consider a variety of opinions, including those from the public. Now to be fair, council wasn’t always upfront in its dealing with Carlisle. Case in point was in August when the elected officials decided not to fill the deputy chief ’s position vacated when Rick Owens retired. Absolutely no consultation occurred in advance with Carlisle as to the potential implications to operations, and Carlisle had to hear the news from the media. The situation was handled poorly. Disagreements captured headlines during Carlisle’s tenure, so it seemed somewhat rehearsed when Mayor Wayne Lippert says, “He worked well with council...” Now as of Jan. 4, Carlisle will be taking up new duties in Kelowna, but both council and the union will remain in Vernon. What will the state of the relationship be after one party has publicly stated the other is not progressive and led to the chief packing his bags and leaving town? There is also the prospect that some members of the association may want to apply for the chief ’s job or other administrative positions in future. Will they be able to work closely with council — as senior staff often has to — after the organization representing them has taken such a stand against the employer? Any potential issues between Carlisle and council are coming to an end, but Vernonites may wonder if a new problem has been ignited.
The Okanagan Equestrian Society is trying to remain upbeat, but the lack of support from two government agencies makes plans for an equestrian centre increasingly unlikely. First off, the Agricultural Land Commission has indicated that using prime farm land for horse racing facilities is not consistent with its mandate to preserve farm land. That should be considered a substantial roadblock as about 100 acres are needed for an equestrian centre and the only large tracts of property left in the region are agricultural. There is the possibility of land that has pre-existing development on it, but 100 acres will be hard to find and it’s likely such sites will be close to residential or commercial uses, creating the potential for land use conflicts. The other bit of bad news came from the B.C. Lottery Corporation which insists the North Okanagan is sufficiently served by gaming outlets, and it won’t support a gambling operation as part of a race track. While the society may considers land to be the major issue, gaming is equally critical as a source of revenue is necessary if an equestrian centre is going to be viable long-term. Even if the society convinces civic leaders to allow horse racing to remain at Kin Race Track, the future will be in doubt without a solid revenue base. Based on the latest information, the society must decide its next steps, including whether it continues legal action over the North Okanagan Regional District’s eviction notice at Kin Race Track. The society may ultimately win the costly court case, but will horse racing realistically ever return to its former glory days? Some tough decisions need to be made by the Okanagan Equestrian Society.

Paying tribute to volunteers
ov. 11 2008 was a special year. On that day, 90 years ago, the First World War ended the conflict that started in Europe in 1914. Vernon area residents volunteered with the rest of Canada to do their part in supporting England against the enemy. In the 20 years I have been indexing the Vernon News at the Vernon Museum for all births, marriage and deaths of the Okanagan area, I never noted how many volunteered for duty. Recently, I heard that in 2008, the City of Vernon donated to the museum one very large glass-framed picture naming all the Vernon-area residents who enlisted in the First World War (approximately 686 men and six women who enlisted as nursing sisters). There were also two smaller glassframed pictures listing 771 area resi-
dents who enlisted in the Second World War. A fourth picture lists the Vernon area students who enlisted in the Second World War. The First World War memorial picture notes eight men enlisted in the Royal Navy, including J.C. Evans, who was lost at sea. Fifty-seven men were killed in action, eight men died from wounds and six men died in battle. In the Second World War memo-
CAMPAIGN SUPPORTED I ask that you please make your readers and all Canadians aware of this national campaign to serve justice for Cst. Glen Evely and his family, by having his name placed on the national police memorial wall. It is an insult and disgrace to be advised that because he wasn't a full-time officer, he is exempt from this honour. We Canadians thank and honour all who gave their lives to protect us and Canada. It shouldn't be an issue of them being part-time or full-time auxiliary or volunteer officers to have their name placed on the memorial wall. E-mail Justice Minister Rob Nicholson at Nichor1@parl.gc.ca and request that the name of Cst. Glen Evely RCMP,, who was killed in the line of duty Nov. 13, 2004, be placed on the police officers memorial wall. He died protecting us and Canada. This is a national campaign. Wayne Pine ENOUGH ALREADY Has anyone given thought to the feelings of how Glen Evely's wife feels every year when The Morning Star resurrects a cause that really does not need addressing. Has anyone at The Morning Star contacted Annie to see how she feels?
rial pictures, there is no indication at the side of the names who were killed in action, died from wounds, died, or who were awarded distinguished service medals, or who enlisted in the navy, air force or army, and no women were noted. Reading the Vernon News to May 1928, some Okanagan and Kootenay residents were not noted as having died in the First World War until their names were being inscribed on
Has Mike Mannella asked Annie for permission to use Glen as his poster boy for his mandate which we see every year at this time? It's been six years, and his wife and her two daughters have to relive this experience every year via The Morning Star. Surely you can leave it alone. Joe O'Hearn AGAINST THE TAX I have been reading many letters to the editor, some of which are interesting, while others I believe, are written by people who haven't got everyday common sense, or as my father said many years ago, "engage thy brain before thy mouth." I have never written anything before to put in a paper. Now I'm not perfect but felt it was about time to put in my two-cents worth. I have read many letters about the HST, some for it and some against, but everyone is entitled to an opinion and I'm against it. Premier Campbell and Colin Hansen said it is good for the economy and will create jobs. When is more tax good for a bad economy? How will charging the poor more tax and giving to companies and large corporations be good? I call that robbing from the poor and giving to the rich. Even Robin Hood knew better.
town cenotaphs up to 1925. Some Vernon area men, I did read in the Vernon News, were returning “to the Old Country” to enlist in their county of origin, in England, regiment, i.e. Oxfordshire Light Infantry or the Royal Berkshire Regiment, my home county. I have copied the First World War and Second World War memorial pictures and have given copies to the Vernon Museum and the Vernon branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. I have suggested to Ron Candy, the Vernon Museum curator, that these memorial pictures should be escorted to the Remembrance Day service and placed next to the Canadian flag, to remember the Vernon area residents who volunteered (not conscripted) to fight with the rest of Canada in the two great wars. Pat Bayliss
If you have a company and have 100 employees, and the government gives you a tax break, how can you hire more people if you already have the amount you need for your business? If you can't sell the product or service you have because of a bed economy, why is giving companies a break and charging others more tax a good thing? What creates employment is when companies can sell their product or service. How many ways and times does this government and everybody else who likes this tax have to be told that the people don't want this tax? If Campbell and Hansen want to spend $31 million on a referendum for next year, then they should pay for it out of their own pocket, not the taxpayers. And Eric Foster and all other MLAs, you don't work for the government, you work for the people that voted for you and put you in a position in government to be the people's speaker. Listen to the people. They're your boss, not Campbell. Grow some family jewels and tell Campbell and his cronies that your constituents and others don't want this tax. The people voted you in and they can vote you out. Think about it. Don Fraser
FEEDING DUCKS Frequently there are pictures in The Morning Star featuring people feeding bread to ducks. However, experts have frequently asked the public to please not feed ducks bread crumbs, as birds get no nutrition from bread. It simply fills them up. Without a healthy diet, they become weakened and more susceptible to disease. Also, when the birds are fed, they tend not to migrate, causing hardship and often death during hard winters. If people wish to feed ducks, please use healthy dry seeds or grains. Harriet Foltinek

Incident challenging for police ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
RCMP have more questions than answers in light of an incident Sunday that began between Vernon and Armstrong, and ended at a local mall. Police were alerted about a possible stolen car by the daughter of a woman who owned the car, at around 5:30 p.m., with the daughter following the car into Vernon from the Armstrong area. “Our officers were alerted that the vehicle driven by suspects was in the vicinity of Safeway, on 32nd Street,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “The daughter was following the car and talking to police on the phone. “We then received an update that one of the male suspects associat-
“Police initiated several arrests.” — Gord Molendyk ed to the car was walking toward a female and pointing a firearm.” This is where the case turns bizarre. Police began to set up a perimeter around the Vernon Square mall. While they were doing that, descriptions of four suspects kept coming into police dispatch, including one of a man and one of a woman. “Police initiated several arrests in quick succession,” said Molendyk. “One was arrested by Quizno’s Subs, one by Canada Safeway, one nearby at Red Top
Grocery and one across 43rd Avenue at a residence on 33rd Street where the police service dog assisted in the arrest of a male suspect. “This file involved a suspect who is wellknown to police, so our officers were forced to deal and use every precautionary measure to ensure officer safety.” The alleged stolen vehicle was seized in the Vernon Square parking lot by police and taken away for identification purposes. After interviewing the owner of the car, police determined the car wasn’t stolen, but
Lake Country boil alert in place Morning Star Staff
Some Lake Country residents are being forced to boil their water. The District of Lake Country issued a boil water notice Tuesday morning after a water main break in the Okanagan Centre area. Water service was expected to be resumed by late afternoon Tuesday but the boil water notice will remain in effect until the water quality is deemed safe. Affected customers include
users west of Camp Road and at the Davidson Road intersection to Okanagan Lake. “The District of Lake Country and Interior Health recommend that all customers in the affected area drink boiled water or a safe alternative,” said Greg Buchholz, the district’s operations manager. “Water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute.”
had become the object of a loose or informal transfer of ownership between local residents whose reliability, said Molendyk, was being questioned by officers. “There were varying degrees of clear minds,” said Molendyk. “Several individuals we dealt with were under the influence of various intoxicants, predominantly drugs.” In the end, no firearm was ever found, no charges were laid against anybody – although the file remains under investigation – and the suspect who was arrested with the assistance of the police services dog, in which contact was made by the dog, turned out not to be a suspect after all. He was just someone who fit a description of one of the car theft suspects.
“He’s probably not happy (that the dog made contact), although having spoken with the officers, this individual didn’t totally comply,” said Molendyk. “Dog handlers do not, willy-nilly, turn a dog loose. He was instructed to get down, he did not and he matched the description, totally, of what our officers were given so the dog assisted. “He was told the dog would be turned loose, contact was made and it turns out that individual was not a suspect. Our officers feel bad about the situation but that’s what they were dealing with.” Police believe at no time the public was in danger at the parking lot, which did have a number of people coming and going at the time from the shops.

ASK A REALTOR® Dear Realtor Mike, I’ve decided to buy a home. What advice do you have to offer in ﬁnding the “right” Real Estate agent to ﬁnd the best property for me or to sell my home? Answer: • Find a licensed agent working full-time. • Experience and knowledge are key factors, so ensure that your Realtor® knows the market. • An agent with passion, enthusiasm and dedication will go the extra mile to get the best results for you. • Most real estate transactions today begin on the internet, so it’s important to ﬁnd a tech-savy agent.
Mike Beck REALTOR®
• Do your homework: ask for letters of reference or names of past clients to contact for references. • Respect and trust are paramount. Communication is huge. Ask your Realtor if they will personally keep you up to date. • You will need to deal with professionals such as an insurance agent, mortgage broker, home inspector etc. The Realtor® you choose should have a network at his/her disposal. • Set up interviews with a few Realtors® and feel free to advise them that you will be meeting with others. At the interview ask as many questions as you wish and do not let high pressure tactics interfere with your decision.

Campfire likely cause of Polson Park blaze RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
An incident near Polson Park has Vernon residents being reminded to be careful with fire. Firefighters received a report of a blaze along the boardwalk, near Polson Drive, at 8:57 a.m. Sunday. â€œThe guys found the bush fully involved,â€? said Dean Wakefield, an investigator with
the Vernon Fire Department. The cause may be related to a campfire from a nearby homeless camp. â€œItâ€™s not the first time weâ€™ve been down in there,â€? said Wakefield. While temperatures have dropped off, Wakefield believes there was still the potential for Sundayâ€™s blaze to spread. â€œThe area is under
tree cover so itâ€™s going to have dry fuel,â€? he said. â€œBut for the most part, it should stay contained because of the wet vegetation around that area.â€? Brush fires arenâ€™t common at this time of the year, but Wakefield insists the public must remain cautious and constantly monitor any campfires they start to ensure the safety of resi-
dents and property. City bylaws must also be followed at all times. â€œCampfires must be

Get your car winter ready with a maintenance check up. Preventative maintenance is key. Make sure your battery, brakes, lights and fuses, cooling and heating systems, electrical and exhaust systems, and belts and hoses are in tip-top shape.
Make sure your water reservoir is full, and carry extra windshield washer fluid in your vehicle. If you have a cell phone, make sure it’s charged and bring it with you. A car charger for the phone is a smart device to have on hand. Cell phone batteries can freeze in very cold weather. Don’t leave your phone in the car for extended periods of time. Be prepared by packing a winter survival kit. Recommended items include: • Emergency kit containing non-perishable food, blankets and first aid supplies • Windshield scraper and snow brush • Extra windshield washer fluid • Fuel line antifreeze • Flares and matches or lighter • Tire chains and gloves • Shovel and traction mat, sand or kitty litter • Flashlight and extra batteries • Battery jumper cables • Spare tire, wheel wrench and jack • Extra clothing and footwear • Sandbags for extra weight Keep your gas tank topped up. This will help to avoid condensation and moist air on the inside of the tank, which can cause fuel lines to freeze and other serious issues. If you get stuck in a storm, don’t panic. Avoid overexertion and exposure. Stay in your vehicle and open your window slightly to make sure you have a supply of fresh air. Use a survival candle for heat. Set out a warning light or flares.

Funtastic on top of sponsors Morning Star Staff
There’s increased focus on sports tourism and special events and their impact on the economy. The Funtastic Sports Society recently hosted the inaugural Sponsorship Summit to support businesses that sponsor sport tourism and local events. “We’re constantly looking at ways to strengthen relationships and offer more value to our partners,” said Brett Kirkpatrick, society president. “Each year, there are more and more events and organizations asking for corporate support and we felt it was an ideal time to help our partners through this Sponsorship Summit”. The summit featured guest speaker Brent Barootes, president of a Calgary sponsorship consulting firm. Delegates at the summit heard examples of how to use sponsorships to maintain relevancy among a diverse customer base and ensure their consumers make the right connections with their brand’s current positioning and values. Barootes also discussed how sponsors rely on sponsorship to drive store traffic, showcase their interest in the community and engage employees. “While it is true event organizers have to work hard to attract corporate sponsorships and involvement, especially in these tough economic times,” he said. “Businesses can no longer engage in sponsorships solely out of philanthropic or social responsibilities; measurable results have to be presented.”

UBCO offering class in Mexico Black Press
Faculty at UBC’s Okanagan campus have created a Spanish summer field school that offers undergraduate students the opportunity to take a class at the University of Quintana Roo in Mexico. Spanish professor Grisel María García Pérez, who helped establish the Spanish summer field school, says the course places an importance on language-culture awareness, and provides students with a unique learning experience in a peer-supported, faculty-supervised network. “The Spanish Summer Field School links second language instruction with international experience and intense intercultural contact,” said García Pérez. “By providing students with intercultural encounters in a Spanish environment their intercultural awareness, their communicative competence in general, and their oral fluency in particular, will improve.” The nine-credit summer school runs from May 9 to July 22. It consists of two three-credit courses taught at UBC’s Okanagan campus, and one threecredit course taught in Mexico. During their trip, students will visit two separate Quintana Roo campuses—one in Chetumal and the other in Playa del Carmen. The field school methodology course, taught by Hugo de Burgos, professor of community, culture and global studies, is the first of the three classes offered. It aims to help prepare students for the intercultural experience. “The Spanish summer field school is really about extending student learning beyond the classroom,” said Teresa Flanagan, manager of international programs and services. “The students will travel and live together to collectively learn a language while being immersed in Mexican culture. Not only will their language skills increase tremendously, but they will become familiar with Quintana Roo students and faculty while engaging in service learning with surrounding communities—all as a cohort from our campus.” Some of the school’s goals are to: ■ Develop intercultural fluency; ■ Engage in a unique educational experience; ■ Support faculty connections with international institutions; ■ Support and facilitate visiting international faculty and students; ■ Provide an affordable international opportunity for both UBC students and international faculty and students. For more information about the summer field school, visit www.ubc.ca/okanagan/students/international/ifs.

Campsites, transportation high on orchardists’ list MIKE SIMMONS Black Press
Orchardists are looking for campsites for pickers and valleywide transportation to improve the Okanagan tree fruit industry. Sukhdev Goraya, of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association, says orchardists have a need to improve labour facilities, including housing, washrooms, showers and eating areas. “We are making the improvements as we can afford to,” he said. The association is examining the potential for campsites for workers. Goraya noted if there were sites that could be administered by the BCFGA and municipal councils, they could be run properly and taken care of. Goraya said growers also need a valley-wide transportation system that goes into rural areas at harvest times. He added that sometimes the only mode of transportation available for orchard workers is hitch-hiking. The industry is also seeking a secure supply of affordable water for agriculture. Goraya pointed out most growers are putting in micro sprinklers. “The overhead sprinklers use a lot of water, and lots evaporates.” He noted micro and underground sprinklers reduce water use, as well as the timing of the systems. Goraya said the BCFGA is working with technology suppliers and government to upgrade their water systems. The BCFGA currently represents 801 commercial fruit growers. Goraya noted the industry has a future in the area, with the
Okanagan providing an ideal growing environment, dry climate and
good soil. He pointed out the industry draws provin-
cial and federal funding to the area, with approximately $5 mil-
lion in federal assistance to the tree fruit industry this year.
“We produce a safe and healthy product, promoting a healthy
lifestyle that can help reduce obesity and health care costs.”

Judy Wasyleshko’s Just Bones focusses on finding beauty in the refuse of disposable culture, representing it in new ways that cause those to pause and take notice. The fourth year fine art student at UBC Okanagan has recorded what remains of a body after cremation and represents these remains in a way that challenges the traditions of how the dead are presented, which is typically burial or cremation. “My interest in how western culture deals with the dead began with the recent passing of my father,” she said. “He had expressed a desire that his remains be used for science or education. While making arrangements for cremation of his body, I was intrigued by the cremation process and what the full remains of a real body consist of.” Wasyleshko decided to focus her work

Kelowna jazz musicians step out DVOIRA YANOVSKY Morning Star Staff
With vocals rich as cream and equally smooth, the Amanda Morazain Quintet makes its Vernon Jazz Club debut Saturday. Morazain will be backed by Kelownaâ€™s popular Jazz CafĂŠ band with Craig Thomson on sax, Neville Bowman on piano, Bernie Addington on bass, and drummer Scott Gamble. Morazain and the band will perform a repertoire of jazz standards with a modern taste, including silky smooth ballads, upbeat Latin tunes, and some blues you can really groove to. Song highlights include Miles Davisâ€™ Four, Dizzy Gillespieâ€™s A Night in Tunisia, Johnny One Note by Rodgers and Hart, and Jobimâ€™s A Felicidade. A graduate of the world renowned Humber College vocal jazz program in Toronto, Morazainâ€™s 2009 debut CD, Pathway, was nominated for the B.C. Interior Music Awardâ€™s Best Jazz Album of the Year. As with many vocalists, the great Ella Fitzgerald drew Morazain into the
world of jazz. â€œI fell in love with the beautiful, melodic voice of Ella Fitzgerald in my teens. I had been trained in classical and Broadway up to that point and I loved how low and sultry jazz singers sounded,â€? she said. With this initial inspiration, Morazain developed her own style. â€œI would describe my musical style as being real smooth jazz. My influences include Fitzgerald, Astrud Gilberto, and Chet Baker, all of whom have velvety tones.â€? Morazain is also a highly popular vocal teacher in Kelowna whose musical expertise will be on display as an adjudicator at the B.C. Interior Jazz Festival. â€œI appreciate how special it is that jazz musicians can just get together in a room, hand out a chart, and make magic,â€? said Morazain, adding, â€œJazz musicians are some of the most sensitive musicians out there.â€? A music educator at Mount Boucherie Secondary School in West Kelowna, Thomson is thrilled with the success of some of last

Nancy Nash (Sazacha Red Sky), left, Hazel Turchinetz and Amelia Correale tend to abused and abandoned cats. Nash performs in concert in support of the Okanagan Humane Society Saturday at the Elk’s Hall.
Singer is crazy for cats
Morning Star Staff
Musician Nancy Nash doesn’t mind being called a cat lady. She freely admits she loves felines, and has no problem opening her home to all animals. Nash, also known by her First Nations given name, Sazacha Red Sky, has been an animal, earth, First Nation’s and children’s activist for more than 35 years. Also a singersongwriter, who has lived in Toronto, Vancouver and L.A., she now runs an animal shelter at her mountain home on the westside of Vernon. On Saturday, she and Hazel Turchinetz, a registered nurse who also cares for abandoned and abused animals, are helping the Okanagan Humane Society with a Christmas bazaar, bake sale and concert at the
Vernon Elk’s Hall. “Each year the Okanagan Humane Society is responsible for assisting hundreds of animals to be spayed, neutered and adopted. Your donations and support make this possible,” said Nash. From 1986 to 1992 while living in L.A., Nash was a sidekick to late comedian Bob Hope, and sang backup with Cher. A Juno nominee for best vocalist as Sazacha Red Sky and a winner at the West Coast Music Awards, Nash also sang background vocals on Bon Jovi’s mega-hit Livin’ on a Prayer as well as Loverboy’s Turn Me Loose. Nash performs with fiddler Jenny Jones to benefit the Humane Society at the Elk’s Hall, 3103-30th St., Saturday at 2 p.m. The event starts with a pancake breakfast at 9 a.m.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Carefully plan all your moves and methods, so that you don’t make a miscalculation and deprive yourself of success you normally would have achieved. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Because you could be a bit daring, you might jump to conclusions far too easily. Take the necessary time to verify all information that comes from unknown sources. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Involving yourself in the financial affairs of others isn’t the wisest course of action for you to take. If you allow yourself to be drawn into their problems, demands could be put on you personally. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’re the one who will be held accountable for the actions and/or behavior of someone you teamed up with, if anything should go wrong. Be sure your ally is highly credible. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Unattractive jobs that you’ve put off doing will only get tougher by delaying them or ignoring them completely. They are likely to jump up and bite you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Guard against an inclination to take risks with something you borrowed from another. If you ruin anything the other person values, you will be expected to make restitution immediately.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) It is best never to knowingly buck the odds, especially with matters or things that are work-related or have to do with your career. You could do irrefutable harm and risk a lot for a little. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Although you generally are a reasonably tactful person, you might be so focused on the faults of others that you condemn them for things you normally wouldn’t. Lighten up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Manage money matters yourself, instead of putting your financial affairs in the hands of someone about whom you know little. Any mistakes this person makes will come out of your pocket. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If someone whose support you usually receive is very resistant to your plans, expressing aggression won’t help your case one bit. Find out what it is that s/he dislikes and try to make some changes.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot ﬂashes and weight gain. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment includes the use of bioidentical, plant based hormones that closely duplicate hormones your body produces. Natural hormones also slow the aging process.

Bridge by Phillip Alder Thomas Jefferson said, “Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unrufﬂed under all circumstances.” That applies to many places, including the bridge table. If you can stay cool, allowing your brain to keep counting, you will do well. But if you get rufﬂed, letting past errors or the opponents’ luck distract you, more bad results are sure to follow. Today, we are going to look at defensive overruffs. Normally when a defender has a chance to overruff the declarer or dummy, he should take it. However, there are times when doing so is an error. Before we get to the guidelines, though, you are
West, defending against four spades. You lead the heart eight, starting a high-low with your doubleton. Partner wins with his nine, cashes the heart ace, and continues with the heart jack, which declarer ruffs with the spade queen. Would you overruff or not? Consider your two plays: overrufﬁng and discarding. If you overruff, declarer will take your shift, draw trumps, and claim. In contrast, if you discard, you will have K-10-2 of spades over his A-J-7 and must get two trump tricks to defeat the contract. Here is the general rule: Overruff with any singleton, doubleton kinglow, doubleton queen-low, or tripleton queen-low-
low. Do not overruff with doubleton ace, king-third or queen-fourth if you must score the top honor later and may score an extra trick with one of your lower cards (unless it is clearly important for you immediately to shift to another suit, where partner has one trick or more to cash).

Sports B â€˜Backs rally past Vipers 3ONICS STUFF EDITOR: Kevin Mitchell s s SPORTS VERNONMORNINGSTARCOM
Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Vipers just canâ€™t seem to solve the Salmon Arm SilverBacks. The Snakes were on the verge of snapping a three-game slump against their neighbours to the north, only to see a string of controversial third-period penalties sap their momentum and allow the Gorillas to pull a 4-3 comeback win before 1,200 B.C. Hockey League fans Saturday night at the Sunwave Centre. With the Vipers leading 3-1 early in the third period, linesman Mike Langin handed captain Dave Robinson a fourminute butt-ending penalty as he battled with the SilverBacksâ€™ James Friedel. Jarryd Ten Vaanholt pulled Salmon Arm within a goal a minute into the ensuing powerplay, and things unravelled further when Vipersâ€™ head coach Mark Ferner earned a bench minor during the stoppage. â€œThe linesmen that made that call better be darn sure itâ€™s a butt end and our indication is it wasnâ€™t,â€? said Ferner, who argued the SilverBacks should have been assessed an unsportsmanlike penalty for taunting the Vipers in front of their bench after the goal. Added Robinson: â€œIt was pretty unfortunate that call was made. I donâ€™t think I have ever butt-ended another player, and I never will. â€œThat kind of turned the game. It was another game where we outplayed and outshot them and probably deserved a better fate... so weâ€™ll just have to learn from it and move on.â€? The SilverBacks equalized 21 seconds later on a 5-on-3, with first star Josh Manson pocketing his fourth goal, assisted by Justin Krabben. Brett Knowles (9th goal) collected with the winner at 10:14, scoring shorthanded just as a Viper was stepping on the ice after serving the bench minor. â€œThe last thing we expected

Vernon Vipersâ€™ Mike Zalewski (left) and Salmon Arm SilverBacksâ€™ David Killip battle for the puck in B.C. Hockey League action Saturday night at the Sunwave Centre. was to be put in that situation,â€? said Ferner. â€œWe were in a good spot â€“ tied 1-1 going into the third period on the road.â€? The Vipers opened the scoring in the second period when Kyle Murphy collected the rebound off Robinsonâ€™s original shot and fed the Viper captain for an open net goal, his 10th of the season, at 8:03. With referee Matt Thurstonâ€™s hand raised for a delayed penalty against Salmon Arm, the Vipersâ€™ Bryce Kakoske attacked the SilverBacksâ€™ blueline, getting behind the defence and ripping his shot high glove side on netminder Chase Martin at 2:40 of the third period. Robinson (11th) capped the Viper offence at 5:10, jamming home the rebound after Murphy
(second star) tipped Brett Corkeyâ€™s point shot. Devin Gannon, with his teamleading 13th goal, had Salmon Armâ€™s other tally, a second-period marker. Martin was solid for the second-straight night against Vernon (they grounded the Vipers 3-2 Friday night at Wesbild Centre), recording 40 stops to earn third star and help the SilverBacks creep into second place in the Interior at 16-8. Bryton Udy (24 saves) took the loss. Viper call-up Nick Kerr, the younger brother of former Snake James Kerr, dropped the gloves with the SilverBacksâ€™ Dustin Cave five minutes into the third period. Said Robinson of Kerr: â€œHeâ€™s a big kid and he stepped up and
was throwing them pretty well.â€? The Vipers, who occupy fourth in the Interior at 12-7-15, departed Tuesday morning for a four-game tour of the BCHLâ€™s coastal teams, starting tonight against the first-place Powell River Kings (18-4-1-2) at Hap Parker Arena. They visit the Coquitlam Express (10-9-1-4), Langley Chiefs (15-8-0-4) and Surrey Eagles (15-9-0-1) Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively. Said Ferner: â€œWeâ€™ll get out of Dodge for a while, which will be good for our guys. We havenâ€™t had a lot of overnight games of late, so theyâ€™ll be looking forward to it.â€? The next Viper home game is Friday, Nov. 26 against the Trail Smoke Eaters.

The Seaton Sonics will head into the Okanagan Valley senior AA boys volleyball championships on a massive high Friday at George Elliot Secondary in Winfield. The Sonics upended the No. 1-ranked AAA Semiahmoo Totems 2-1 (25-11, 26-28, 15-12) to claim the Last Chance Before the Dance Invitational Tournament last weekend at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops. Semiahmoo advanced to the final after a big semifinal win over St. Pauls Collegiate, the top team from Manitoba, but were shocked by the No. 1 AA Sonics in the first set. â€œOur back row, led by Sean Bonnett, was passing up a storm which allowed middles Keenan Wright and tourney all-star Jadon Ward to score at will,â€? said Seaton head coach Doug Kozak. â€œMax Belfort exposed a weakness in Semiâ€™s passing lineup and served their libero off the floor.â€? Tournament MVP Adam Tishenko pressured Semiahmooâ€™s weakest blockers, while rookies Brad Kievit and Scott Day were steady in the back row. Semiahmoo edged Seaton 28-26 in the second set, but the Sonics outworked the Totems to take the championship on combo crushes from high-flying hitters Conner Kozak and Alex Nolan. â€œThis was our fourth tournament championship of the season and was definitely the most satisfying and fun of all. I havenâ€™t had that much fun coaching this year.â€? Seaton opened by grounding No. 5 AAA G.P. Vanier Towhees of Comox, Kelowna Owls, and Mt. Sentinel Wildcats of South Slocan in preliminary play. Playoff wins over the Fulton Maroons and No. 10 AA D.P. Todd Trojans of Prince George set the Sonics up for a semifinal date with No. 2 AAA Earl Marriot Mariners of White Rock. The Mariners took the first set, but made a crucial mistake in the process. â€œWe looked super tired and E.M. was scoring at will in the second set, but made the mistake of making us mad by chirping at us and laughing through the net,â€? said Kozak. â€œI havenâ€™t seen the boys turn it on in a game like that yet this year. We pushed it to a third set and went on to take the match 15-13.â€? In wildcard action Monday night at Fulton, the host Maroons bounced the South Okanagan Hornets of Oliver 2-0 (25-18, 25-17) and the Pleasant Valley Saints 2-0 (25-21, 26-24) to earn a backdoor berth in the Valleys. The Saints also advanced by buzzing the Hornets 2-0 (25-15, 25-6).

Midget Vipers settle for silver in Alberta Morning Star Staff
Two out-of-town tournaments this season, two championship finals for the Vernon Home Building Centre Midget Vipers. Unfortunately the result for the Tier 1 squad was also the same as the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers edged the Vipers 3-2 in Sunday’s final at the Edge School’s inaugural Fall Classic Tournament in Calgary. A quick start by the Rangers, with a goal at the 12-second mark, and a 2-0 lead after the first period meant the Vipers were playing catch-up all game long. Numerous scoring chances in the second period resulted in Trevor Pickett, assisted by Colton Thibault and Chris Gillies, cutting the margin in half going into the final frame. Vernon kept up the pressure in the third but the Rangers’ MVP goalie, 5-foot-7 Tyler Berger, kept the Vipers at bay until Fort Saskatchewan increased their lead to 3-1 with three minutes to play. Thibault notched a powerplay marker a minute later, from Brett Hawrys and Gillies, to give the Vipers a chance but pulling the goalie for the last 90 seconds failed to generate the equalizer. Vipers goalie Danny Todosychuk turned aside 35 shots to earn MVP honours. Vernon qualified for Sunday’s tilt by doubling up on the Foothills Bisons, from Nanton, Alta., 6-3 in Saturday night’s semifinal. Game MVP Braydon Sophonow led the way offensively with 2+1 for the Vipers, who led 3-0 after the opening period. Hawrys also scored twice for the winners, while Pickett and Justin Mitchell, on a great give-and-go

Michael Hails backstopped the team to victory with several timely saves. The Vipers qualified for the semis by winning their pool with three wins and a tie after defeating the Morinville Warriors 4-1 Saturday afternoon in the 12-team tournament. MVP Todosychuk was denied a shutout late in the contest after goals by defenceman Austin Krahn, Ethan Kalugin, Nick Pantaleo and Thibault. “We continue to make positive steps in

the right direction,” said head coach Jim Armstrong, who was supported on the bench by trainer Craig Carter. “We hated to lose (the final) but we learned some valuable lessons that we can use in the future. It was a great weekend for team-building on every front and to see so many players scoring goals and contributing at the tournament just made it that much more memorable.” The Vernon Coca Cola Midget Tier 2 Vipers were busy hosting their eight-team tournament last weekend. They started Friday night with a 3-3 draw against the Port
Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Goals went to Taylor Hamilton-Gee, Dan Gilowski and Game MVP Ryan Dubetz. Goalie Max Brown had a great game in securing the tie. The Vipers fell behind early and couldn’t recover as they bowed 4-2 to Williams Lake Saturday morning. Down 2-0 after 20 minutes, Vernon came back in the second period with a goal by Russell Hoefsloot, assisted by Brad Jones and Wyatt Bonneau. Malcolm McPhee connected for the Vipers in the third period. Game MVP went to Conrad McMillan, who was solid in net. In the afternoon, the Coke boys fell 9-5 to the Langley Eagles. The birds opened up the scoring early in the first period, but Vernon replied 40 seconds later when Liam Revell went endto-end, feeding Gilowski for a gorgeous top shelf goal. McPhee, Game MVP Kyle Clark, Owen Barker and Cliff High all netted goals for the Vipers. The Vipers blew a two-goal lead in their final game, a 4-2 loss to the Trail Smoke Eaters on Sunday. Goals by Russel Hoefsloot, assisted by Owen Barker, and Aaron Benjaminson, assisted by Travis Churchill, had Vernon up two goals after the first period, but Trail rallied with four unanswered goals to take the win. Williams Lake iced Quesnel 6-2 to win their second-straight tournament title.

NET crew invades coast Morning Star Staff
Combine and conquer. It was a plan that worked wonders as a pair Novice ringette teams merged to form North Enderby Timber, going 5-0 at the Burnaby Ice Breaker Tournament last weekend. The girls outscored their opponents 54-24, with Kalen Webster leading the way with 11 goals. Georgia Lannon (10), Mackenzie Munroe (10), Carly Newman (7), Brooke Buller (4), Emma Elders (3), Grace Cornell (3), Hailey Quiring (2), Kenzie Kosure (2), Julie Francis and Bryn TaylorHawes all found the scoresheet. Koshure, Buller, Quiring, Newman and Lannon each earned wins in net. The People Eaters and the Lightning also combined forces for the Burnaby tournament. The girls opened with an 8-3 loss to Westside Saturday. Led by Josey Nerling in goal, Kinsey Corday, Giselle Torres and Kyra Olsen handled the offence. Torres provided the lone goal as a tired Vernon squad fell 6-1 to Kelowna Sunday. Riley Marchand was strong in net while Maria Alexis and Kayla Spillett provided strong two-way play. Warren Carter’s NET Vikings dominated the Petite division in Burnaby, starting with a 15-3 shellacking of the Port Coquitlam Blue Dragons Thursday. Czarina Wisse defended the net while every Vernon skater recorded a point. The Vikes got 3+2 each from Evangeline Koshure, Saylor Martian and Saige Woodliffe. Colten Schaper-Kotter chipped in with three goals, singles coming from Alyssa Carter (4A), Emma Carter and Rebecca VanEyck. Ava Cornell earned the win as the Vikes conquered the Burnaby Rinkrats 18-3. Woodliffe led the offence with 3+4, while Wisse and Ava
Haldance each supplied 3+1. It was more of the same against the Northwest Vancouver Blizzards Friday, as Haldane and SchaperKotter combined for 14 points in a 20-3 win. Other hat tricks were supplied by Alyssa Carter (3A) and Wisse (1A). Wisse stood tall in net as Vernon edged the Richmond Ice Devils 7-6. The Vikes came out sluggish but turned it on late as Koshure tied the game 6-6 with three minutes left. Woodliffe scored the winner with 1:25 to go. The Vikes ended with a 7-6 loss to the Delta Disco Sunday. Vernon spotted Delta a 5-1 lead before equalizing in the middle of the second period courtesy of Woodliffe’s natural hat trick. The Vernon Advertising Works Dinos also went 4-1 in Petite action in Burnaby. Kendra Ostafie sniped a pair of goals as the Dinos opened with a 5-3 loss to Surrey/White Rock. Marika Munroe had the other goal. Assists came from Cassidy Marshall and Madison Fox. Later Friday, the Dinos rebounded with an 8-4 win over Delta. Ostafie (3+2), Shelby Connors (3+1) and Chelsea Marshall (2+1) led the offence. Fox earned the shutout as the advertising crew pummelled Port Coquitlam Shooting Stars 10-0. Ostafie, Abygayle Williamson and Connors fired hat tricks. Munroe was strong in net as the Dinos ended the tourney by stopping the Rinkrats 9-1 Sunday at historic Queen’s Park Arena. Ostafie again led the scoring with 3+2, while Connors added three goals. Williamson supplied 2+2, with Ellen Campbell earning her second goal of the season. The DCT Chambers Voltage went 5-0 in Petite play at the Icebreaker. Caleb Pope supplied the winner with 25 seconds remaining as
the Voltage opened with a 4-3 win over Surrey/White Rock. After rolling wins over Vancouver and Port Coquitlam, the Voltage zapped Delta 6-4 in another tight game where goalie Wynter Vanderveen made some great saves. Pope (2), Alex Drury, Mason Christenson, Miranda Chapple and Stephanie Backer, with an empty-netter, handled the offence. The Nixon Wenger Stingers faced some stiff competition in going 2-1-1 in the Tween division in Burnaby, their first tournament of season. The Stingers played one of their best games of the year, but fell 8-2 to Kelowna in the semifinals, settling for fourth place. Netminder Madison Johnson had one of her best games. In Tween A Icebreaker action, Vernon dropped three straight games before ending on a winning note. After losses to Fraser Valley (8-1), Port Coquitlam (9-3) and Delta (8-1), the team stormed back with a 6-5 nail-biter win against Burnaby. Kennedy Pope was the top scorer with three goals on the weekend, with two apiece coming from Teigan Moore and Sydney Harder. Singles were provided by Catlyn Marshall, Danika Seed, Hannah Popilchak and Bailey Williamson. Assists were shared by Moore, Williamson, Seed, Popilchak, and Katelyn Paulin. Netminder Garrett Adams faced plenty of shots throughout the tournament. The Vernon Shooting Stars got three goals from Emma Lochead as they lit up Kelowna #2 in Bunny action Sunday. Using strong team play, the Stars got other offence from Amy Demetrick, Mackenzie Gilman and Brooklyn Young, who scored her first-ever goal.
The Vernon Yellowjackets lost a heartbreaker, falling 16-6 to the West Kelowna Sundevils in the Southern Interior Football Conference Pee Wee semifinals Sunday in Kelowna. “We knew the game was going to be close but that the Yellowjackets had a very good chance of winning,” said Jackets’ head coach Ed Huber. On the opening series, the Yellowjackets marched a 13-play offensive drive, capped by an eight-yard Josh Hyer touchdown run. After that, the game seesawed until the Devils scored a converted TD partway thru the second quarter to take an 8-6 lead. To open the second half, Thomas Mackewich executed a perfect onside kick that was recovered by Tyler Braun, giving Vernon the ball on the Devils 45-yard line. Vernon QB Keegan Vicklund ran the ball twice bringing the ball to the 11-yard line, but the Jackets fumbled on West Kelowna’s one and the Devils recovered, adding a late score to put the game away. The beehive defence had 14 kids get in on tackles, with Braun leading the way with six. Dylan Huber had an interception and Keith Jones blocked a punt. Vicklund (57 yards), Morgan Nichols (44 yards) and Zach Benn
(24 yards) led the offence, while twoway linesmen Reid Mackenzie, Tyler Riva and Tyler Sova controlled the line of scrimmage. “This Vernon team was by far the most improved team in the league this year, the coaching staff was very proud of all the players,” said Huber. In Junior Bantam play, the Vernon Marauders finished third in the SIFC after suffering a 36-6 loss to the Kelowna Lions. Zack Kronbauer scored Vernon’s only major and rushed 144 yards on the day. Max Chapman rushed for 83 yards and delivered several punishing blocks. Carson Labrecque and Vance Rogers played solid games on the
offensive line. Middle linebacker Jacob Mayner led the Marauder defence with a dozen tackles and a blocked convert attempt. Levi Nicholas had nine tackles, Connor Kamann recorded seven and Trey Isaac and Jonah Anstey each had four. “You all played the best and hardest that we’ve seen from you today and each and every one of you should be proud of yourselves,” said defensive coach Andy Stefansson. Added head coach Ron Kirschner: “All of our players have played with heart, determination and great sportsmanship throughout the season and all of the coaches are very proud of each and everyone them.”

It was the first time the North Okanagan Knights have been shut out all season, but Sylvain Leone still liked his team’s effort. The Knights’ head coach credited his team’s defence for turning in a much-improved performance in a 2-0 loss to the red-hot Kamloops Storm in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League play Sunday at McArthur Park Arena. “Scoring goals hasn’t been our problem in the last few weeks, it has been our team defence,” said Leone, who said a mental error in the neutral zone by North Okanagan led the Storm’s first goal, and a turnover in front of netminder Chris Solecki during a breakout resulted in the second. “Take those two opportunities away and it’s a pretty tight game. “We got ourselves into some penalty trouble in the second period... we did give up a powerplay goal, but overall our penalty kill was fantastic.” Duncan Schulz (11th goal) and Bevin Ollek (8th) handled the Storm scoring in support of Lynden Stanwood, who recorded 29 stops for the shutout. Solecki turned aside 34 Kamloops shots. The Knights have been in a funk of late, going 3-7 in their last 10 games while the Storm are cruising at 9-1. Leone hinted his team may have grown a little overconfident after a solid start to the season, but added recent losses to second-place Revelstoke Grizzlies (20-5) and first-place Osoyoos Coyotes (19-1-1-3) have provided a bit of a reality check for the second-year club. “It has been a challenging two weeks for us, but last night was a step in the right direction.” The Knights, fifth in the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference at 11-12, will look to snap a threegame slide Friday night when they visit the Grizz at the Forum. North Okanagan hosts Revelstoke in Sunday matinee action (2 p.m.) at Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong.

Moose LeNoury, Zac McCall, Noah Turanski, Gage Kopp, Cody Bauml and Mac Gourdine played a solid defensive game to limit Kamloops’ scoring chances. Brett Lambert went top shelf to open the scoring, followed by a goal from Gage Kopp, assisted by Kaden Black. Black finished the scoring for the ever-improving Mustangs with an open-netter from his stomach. In Bantam Tier 1 tournament play, the Vernon Sun Valley Sports Renegades went 2-2 last weekend in Penticton. Missing Nicholas Stanhope (broken arm) and Austin Garrington (back) to injury, the shortbenched Renegades called up Jeff Bouchon as they outlasted Burnaby 5-4 Friday night. Goals came from Jacob Dolinar (2), Dennon Leibel, Carson Richards and Game MVP Jene Desjarlais. Assists went to Curtis Sexsmith (2), Cole Woodliffe, Don Robinson, Desjarlais and Blaine Caton. Saturday morning, Woodliffe and Sexsmith handled the Vernon offence as they fell 7-2 to Penticton. Mitchell Lukacs, who earned an assist, broke his arm and Griffin Fried broke his thumb. Dolinar earned Game MVP. Dolinar had a goal and a helper and

For the third year in a row, the United States has won the World Junior A Challenge, defeating Canada East 6-4 in Sunday’s goldmedal game at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton. Jimmy Mullin scored the winner, his tournament-leading sixth goal, with 3:53 to go to complete the American comeback from a 4-1 second-period deficit. Jordan Ruby was terrific in the Canada East net, making 40 saves, while American keeper Casey DeSmith stopped all eight shots he faced in relief of starter Zane Gothberg. Scott Mayfield of the U.S. was named the tournament MVP. Earlier Sunday, Switzerland exploded for six unanswered third-period goals to brush back Canada West 8-3 in the bronzemedal game. Dylan Walchuk of the Vernon Vipers assisted on Canada West’s opening goal.

Robinson supplied a single as Vernon fell 7-2 to Prince George later Saturday. Riley Booth was Game MVP. Playing with just 10 skaters, Vernon finished the tourney with an 8-6 win over Victoria. Dolinar led the offence with 3+2 and Sexsmith supplied 2+1. Leibel (3A) and Caton (empty-netter) completed the offence. In Bantam Tier 3 play, the Vernon Veterinary Clinic turned in a gutsy performance last weekend in Revelstoke, losing a trio of one-goal games with just 11 skaters. Tournament offence came from Bryton Stead (1+2) Gabe Turner, Cameron Hitch (2), Hayden Chase (1+2), Jordan Rea (1+2), and Easton Jones (1+1). Assists went to Shayne Groenveld (2), Braden Gilowski, Jeffrey Hiscoe and Liam Curran. Louis Springer and Bryce Dyck played great in net, averaging 35 saves a game. In Atom Development play, the Vernon Valleywood Remanufacturing Venom fell 7-5 to the host Kamloops Devils Saturday at Memorial Arena. Scoring for the Venom were Cody Webb, on a pass from Mika Burns, and Keeghan McRae, on a shot from Steven Benischek. Caden Danbrook, Gavin Fleck and Dylan Sedlacek rounded out the Vernon attack. Braeden Cooper pulled the hat trick as the Venom rebounded with a 9-5 victory over the Salmon Arm Silvertips Sunday in Sicamous.
Fleck added a deuce for the Venom, who got singles from Webb, Coleton Bilodeau, CJ Storey and Sedlacek. Assists went to Aidan Rysen, Burns, Lee Christensen, and Benischek. Weekend goaltending duties were shared by Braeden Barnard and Tyler Sedlacek. The Kelowna Lakers got 2+2 from shifty Orca Wiesblatt in a 6-3 win over the H&L Glass Wolfpack Saturday afternoon at Wesbild Centre. Nicholas Cherkowski pulled the hat trick for the Wolfpack, on three nifty passes by Cory Lazar, whose brother, Curtis, a first-round WHL Bantam Draft pick of the Edmonton Oil Kings, was in attendance. Dylan Blazek and Caden Colmorgen shared the Wolfpack goaltending. In other Atom Development play, the North Okanagan Knights turned in one of their poorest efforts of the season in a 6-5 loss to the Chase Chiefs at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Trailing 4-2 entering the third period, the Knights rallied with three goals in less than five minutes. However, two costly defensive turnovers in the final minutes cost the Knights the victory. The Knights’ Mitchell Brown scored three goals with singles by Bryan Brew and Kord Haller. Wesley Graves added three assists while Matthew Dolinar had two. James Francis and Jake Crandlemire also drew helpers as North Okanagan dropped to 5-1.

Carnival welcomes expression KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff
Children of all ages are invited to express themselves this Saturday, as the North Okanagan Child Care Society celebrates National Child Day. The Express Yourself Children’s Carnival followed by the Express Yourself Diva and Dudes Disco are a way of honouring Article 13 in the Convention on the Rights of the Child: “The child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child’s choice.” The Children’s Carnival brings together a number of activities and entertainers for families, including Uncle Chris
the Clown, carnival games, tae kwon do, Djembe drumming, rhythmic gymnastics, bouncy castles, horse racing, face painting, pie throwing and the funk-it-up photo booth. Last year, the NOCCS held a summer solstice celebration for adults, and organizers are hoping that Saturday’s children’s carnival will turn into an annual event. “We’re hoping we’ll get lots of families with younger children,” said Mandy Humphrey, with the society. “Each year, the National Child Day celebrates one of the rights of the child and this year it’s about expressing yourself, so we’re hoping the disco will be funky, thanks to DJ Johnny Boy’s music.” And, while the day’s events are fundraisers for the NOCCS, Humphrey said they are more about celebrating children and their right to express themselves.
“We have lots of people from the community helping us out. Uncle Chris the Clown will do magic, we’ll have applebobbing and with the funk-it-up photo booth, students from MC College will do funky hair, a funky face, funky nails or all three, so you can then have your photo taken with your friends.” The Express Yourself Children’s Carnival takes place Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Centre. Tickets are $10 per family or $5 per person, available at the door, or in advance from NOCCS. The Express Yourself Diva & Dudes Disco is Saturday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Centre. Tickets are $10 per family or $5 per person, available at the door. For more information, or to pre-purchase tickets, please call the NOCCS at 250-558-9963.
Children celebrated around the world LYNNE RESIDE
Special to The Morning Star
In 1989, the United Nations developed the “Convention on the Rights of the Child” (CRC). This was meant to enshrine the conviction that all children everywhere deserve to live in dignity and to be treated according to their best interests. It outlines the rights of the child and the responsibilities of all families, caregivers and governments to uphold these rights. It is the most ratified human rights document in the world. Only two countries did not sign it. Canada signed it and declared Nov. 20 as a day to recognize children and to focus on education about their rights. The rights of children under the age of 18 fall into three categories in the CRC with a total of 54 separate articles. The three categories are Participation, Provision and Protection. The Participation articles address children’s rights to participation in communities, programs and services for children. These rights address respect and responsibilities towards children. The Provision articles address children’s rights
to an adequate standard of living, family, health care, education and services, and play. The Protection articles identify children’s rights to protection from abuse, neglect, exploitation and discrimination. Protection rights include safety and peace and freedom from bullying. While Canada signed the Convention and is responsible to the UN to uphold it, there are a number of areas where we are not doing very well. In particular, our child poverty rate in B.C. is the highest in Canada, and we are at the very bottom of the 20 developed countries in the proportion of our GDP that we spend on early childhood development. The Canadian Child Care Federation promotes training and information about many issues affecting children including children’s rights. Each year they identify a particular article in the CRC to focus on. This year the focus is on Article 13, which states that “The child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regard-
less of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child’s choice.” In Vernon, we are recognizing National Child Day in a number of ways. We will distribute blue ribbons with red hearts for people to wear in support of the rights of children in Canada and throughout the world. To honour freedom of expression, we are asking children to participate by drawing a picture of “A City Fit for Children” and dropping it off at the Boys and Girls Club by Friday to be presented to our community leaders. The picture templates have been distributed to daycares, preschools and other children’s programs, or children can just draw their picture on a blank piece of paper. There are a number of fun events in the community for young children at the Boys and Girls Club today and the Vernon Rec Centre on Saturday. We are encouraging people to attend one of these events or to make Nov. 20 a special day for children in their own way. Let’s continue to make Vernon and area a “City Fit for Children.”

Mara Station offers a retreat from grief CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
Grief is as old as life itself. A grief retreat is a place to acknowledge loss and help make sense of the world again. “The retreat is a safe, sacred space where you can bear witness without judgment. I say it is a space where people will sit in the fire with you,” said Eric Casselman of Salmon Arm. “After Jim died, I realized I needed help. Words are sacred and I use them carefully. I don’t say I lost Jim. Jim died and left me lost.” Her husband of 33 years, Jim Casselman, died of mesothelomia, cancer caused by asbestos exposure, in 2007. He was a teacher who had worked for 25 years in a school with asbestos insulation. She heard about a grief retreat in New Mexico and attended that and two others, finding that she benefited in different ways from each retreat. The Grief Retreat at the Mara Station Retreat Centre was the last one she attended and she talks about what people might expect from the upcoming retreat Dec. 3 to 7 at the centre. “When Jim died, I had nothing left. All my energy systems were shattered. I found that grief in our society has rules and there are misunderstandings and assumptions made about the process, how to grieve and how long to grieve. I say you burn the calendar when you start to grieve because grief is on a very different calendar from our hearts. I knew I needed to listen to my heart because if I didn’t, it would come out later in other ways.” Casselman appreciated her friends wellmeaning advice but she knew she was in new territory and had to find the path that was right for her. “Jim and I had an extraordinary and remarkable relationship
where we expressed our feelings and he lived his dying experience. In his wisdom we entered counseling as a family with our two sons, and as a couple. That was his gift to us. He wrote letters to us that we got after he died,” said Casselman. She left her first retreat feeling stronger, knowing it was all right to grieve and feel pain as she went through the darkness but she knew she still had work to do. “It’s a human privilege to experience dark emotions openly. Why are we given these emotions if we can’t experience them? At a retreat, you are nurtured, embraced, listened to and have a choice of complementary resources. You are looked after in every way. The Mara Station retreat was the first one for some of the people there and it took a lot of courage for them to step out and begin to understand their grieving journey. There is a universal compassion at the retreats.” She suggests that people find their own timing for attending a retreat, probably waiting until the immediate post-death shock is past. “Talk to the retreat organizers and they will help you decide,” she advised. “Mara Station is such a gentle, kind environment, full of nurturing people who honour where each person is and being sensitive to their pain. They are professionally skilled and compassionate. I learned how to engage my grief as a resourceful ally rather than a vengeful critic. I continue to embrace that and I use the resources of my journey of discovery of grief as my guide. We are so fortunate to have something like Mara Station so close here.” Casselman has made presentations to the local hospice society. She makes it a practice to send people who are bereaved a person-
To place a classified ad call:
“Jim died and left me lost.” — Erica Casselman ally appropriate book and information on the Mara Station grief retreats a few months after their loved ones have died. She is a social worker and had started to study thanatology, the science of death, dying and grief at Hood College in Maryland. “I find that the education brings me a little bit of peace and in time I will be able to companion someone in the dying process. I am not doing this for Jim but because of him and what happened. I am learning to integrate Jim into my life in a different way.
Grief is the price we pay for loving. You do not heal from the death of a loved one because of time, you heal because of what you do with that time.” She has volunteered to be a companion to a child at the children’s grief retreat in Washington next summer and would like to see children’s grief retreats in Canada She is also involved with the Cancer Society for Asbestos Victims which provides information and support for people with mesothelomia.

ticipant sent her comment: “I came away from the retreat with such a feeling of peace I had not felt since my husband died. Why? Because my grief was validated, and I finally accepted that I am going to continue to grieve and that is OK — and I’m going to be OK.” The Mara Station Grief Retreat takes place Dec. 3 to 7 with grief counsellors Jane Bourcet and Barb Schimpl. There will be complementary self-care therapies available with group sessions and private time. All meals are provided. Mara Station is a peaceful setting on the Shuswap River.

Artisan turns on the light at Festival of Crafts CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
Margaret Dowling’s handmade lamps are warm and welcoming at the entrance to a home, calming and glowing in the living room and sweetly seductive in the bedroom. She makes vintage bases or converts other items to bases and adds her antique fabric, lace, beads and fringes to create a complement to a traditional home or a work of art for a more modern one. She draws her inspiration from growing up around old homes and furniture in England or from the pretty composition of colour on a leaf she sees on her walks. Each lamp can take up to 200 hours to complete and her signature butterfly appears
on each one, as a tiny piece of embroidery or maybe a larger beaded clip. “I start with the base and think about what might complement it. I love to find things from antique stores and use vintage fabric because it seems to me that it gives off its energy as it finds a new way to be beautiful. I often wonder where these gowns and jewelry have been before,” said Dowling, who finds the intricate stitching a perfect complement to her work as a dietary aide for Interior Health, a job she also loves. “If something is not going right, I take it out and start all over again. I get quite attached to the lamps and it’s hard to let them go but I know that people who like them will

It’s interesting to me that men will comment to me that they find the lamps sexy.” While the lamps look delicate, they are sturdy and safe, with a special
finish so they can be kept clean by dusting. Dowling is always available to do repairs and replace missing beads as closely as possible. She gets many of her frames, bases and materials from England. She does custom work and
will incorporate family jewelry, fabric and other pieces into lamps. Her work has been showcased in other shows around the area and at the Vernon Museum. Dowling’s lamps and a variety of other wonderful crafts from area artisans will be at the 10th Annual Festival of Crafts at the Wesbild Centre Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $3, with $1 from each admission going to the North Okanagan Hospice Society. Over the years, Festival of Crafts organizer Olive Dent has raised more than $44,000 for local charities through admissions and raffle
sales. She also supports North Okanagan Hospice Society with
the Celebration of Life booth at the event.

It outlines the rights of the child and the responsibilities of all families, caregivers and governments to uphold these rights. Canada signed it and declared Nov. 20 as a day to recognize children and to focus on education about their rights.

Voting rule change could shift power to Interior JEFF NAGEL Black Press
A tug-of-war between the rural and urban factions of the B.C. Liberal party over voting rules will be critical in deciding the next leader and premier, political analyst David Schreck says. The party executive is considering a move away from the current one-member-one-vote system for choosing a leader to one that would give each of the 85 constituencies equal weight. Schreck believes the proposed change would have a massive impact on the outcome. “The balance of power shifts from the Fraser Valley – Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford – to the Interior,” he said. “It means a member in Bill Bennett’s riding in the Kootenays would have the power of 100 or 200 members in Surrey.” Surrey and Fraser Valley Liberal activists are likely battling behind the scenes to head off a new formula favouring the hinterland, Schreck said. Also to be determined is the date of the leadership convention, the cutoff date for new members to sign up and vote, and whether they’ll have to pay an additional fee to vote at the convention. All three of those variables will affect the influence exerted by political organizers leading any largescale sign-ups and the chances candidates without a strong power base out of the gate could come from behind. The current $10 party membership fee doesn’t give members the right to vote – the constitution says they have to pay a separate fee to actually cast a ballot for leader. “They could say the fee is zero or they could say it’s $100,” Schreck said. “That’s very important.” He said a secondary fee should help rein in mass-signups – especially when an organizer signs up and
pays for others without their knowledge – as it provides another mechanism for the party to verify a member is legitimate. The party also has to decide how much cash each candidate must put up as a deposit to weed out those only
seeking attention and publicity. The deposit fee might be set anywhere between $10,000 and over $100,000, he said. “They clearly have to set a substantial deposit so only serious contenders enter the race.”
Also subject to revision is the current $75,000 leadership campaign spending limit, which Schreck said is outdated and inadequate. Education minister George Abbott’s statement he’ll quit cabinet if he runs highlights
another facet of the race. “If a cabinet minister’s going around the province making announcements on ministry business, he’s also going to increase his exposure and meet party members who may vote for him,”
Schreck said. That opens up any minister who stays in cabinet during the race to accusations of conflict of interest in using public funds to campaign. Those outside cabinet – such as former energy minister Blair
Lekstrom – would be at a disadvantage. “They don’t have equal access to those public resources to campaign for the leadership,” Schreck said, adding Abbott has “set the cat among the pigeons” by make it an issue early.

Chong’s riding picked as first by recall petitioners TOM FLETCHER Black Press
The first recall petition drive to force the B.C. government to get rid of the harmonized sales tax will begin on Nov. 22 in Oak BayGordon Head, Fight HST leader Bill Vander Zalm announced Monday. B.C. Liberal MLA Ida Chong has been among the top targets since Fight HST began its recruitment drive for volunteer canvassers. The anti-tax group says it has more than 200 volunteers in Chong’s riding. Organizers also claim more than 200 volunteers to try to oust Comox Valley MLA Don McRae and nearly as many for Saanich North and the Islands MLA Murray Coell. They plan to pool the volunteers in Oak Bay-Gordon Head first and then move on to the other two constituencies later. “The plan is to hit the riding hard leading up to the holidays, take a short break at Christmas, and then finish the riding petition in the first and second week of January,” Vander Zalm said. In January the petition drive is to start in Comox Valley and Kamloops North, then Cariboo-Chilcotin and Saanich North in February if the HST is still in place. Chong, now minister of science and universities in the B.C. Liberal cabinet, was greeting a delegation of aboriginal leaders from the Kootenays when the announcement came that she would be targeted first. Chong said she will fight back against the recall effort, because its real purpose isn’t to protest the HST but to re-fight the last election. She said she will get the message out about all the things she has done for the constituency, “and I think the
record will speak for itself.” Fight HST is trying to get about 18,000 signatures of regis-
tered voters on a recall petition to force a byelection in Oak BayGordon Head. Vander Zalm has
vowed to keep up the pressure on the government until it gets rid of the HST, which went into effect last
July. After Premier Gordon Campbell said he will accept a simple majority vote in
a referendum on the HST to be held next September, Vander Zalm said he would abandon the recall
campaigns if the government moved the date of the referendum up so people could vote down the tax directly.

How do I get my promotional products to work for me??
I recently read an article on one of my favourite ecommerce websites about promotional products and I wanted to pass along to you a few key points from it. There are a few key factors in making promotional products work. 1. Give people something they want! 2. Don’t skimp out! 3. Design them properly! 4. Quality targeting is more important than quantity When I go to trade-shows, I all to often come away with fifteen lanyards, hundreds of stickers, folders, and other stuff I don’t need and will never use. Not only is the ineffective marketing, but it’s a waste of material. The best promotional products are going to be ones that people use every day. Sticky pads, note pads, and pens are the most effective promotional products for most businesses. People need them, use them daily, and they are relatively cheap. Unless you have something very unique that people will use very often, or you have a budget that allows you to purchase really cool promo products like USB memory cards, go with pens, notepads, and sticky pads. When you purchase 20,000 crappy no-name pens that work once before running out of ink or clogging, it doesn’t project your business in a positive manner. Like employees, promotional products are a direct representation of you. Make sure that people associate you with quality and value and not cheapness. When you give your customer a nice pen you want your customer to say…who took my pen…or where is that pen …I love that pen. Check out our great specials at www.hiprosportswear.com

Can they provide a min. of 3 current references for work in similar in nature to your own? Can they provide Credit references? Will they except forms of payment other than cash? Do they adhere to professional standards and ethical practices? Homeowners can save themselves a lot of money and aggravation just by knowing when to call a pro. Call a pro instead of letting the pride trick you into chasing problems. Some jobs attempted by homeowners are just doomed from the start, and your frustration may only compound the problem and cost you more money.

Email or phone us to get the COMPLETE “Worry Free Checklist” for hiring a contractor - questions to ask to reduce the risk & give you peace of mind.
This has been the question posed by many over the course of this last year. It is not a simple answer – “should we continue to wait for house prices to drop further or should we jump in with both feet and buy”? Ultimately, this becomes a personal decision. However, the waiting game doesn’t always pay! Trying to predict the Housing Market is no simple task. It is like trying to predict the Investment Market – the buy low and sell high strategy. History tells us that the average person is not very good at this. Now, there are markers out there that can guide you with your decision making – Interest Rates! Interest rates are at historical lows, adding signiﬁcant savings over the term of your Mortgage. These savings compared to the potential price drop in the housing market may even themselves out. For every 1% increase in your rate, you could pay up to $9800 more (based on today’s 5 year rate assuming a 300,000 Mortgage). So, do we wait to save $10,000 in a possible price drop to potentially gain another $10,000 in an interest rate increase? The clear answer is “no”! The Market is low all around. These are the opportunities that every astute investor looks for - the ability to get in at the right time. There is no crystal ball but it is important to look at the Market, and yes, at your own situation before making your ﬁnal decision to buy.

So many resumes, so little time. To attract the employer’s attention, create a strong Proﬁle (like a personal advertisement) to “hook” the reader’s interest. Know what the employer is looking for, and include relevant information about your education, experience, and specialized job-related skills and abilities that will match the employer’s needs. Talk about bottom-line results you can deliver that will beneﬁt the company, such as generating sales, controlling costs, or improving proﬁts. Address the employer’s needs in the ﬁrst few lines, and they will be more motivated to read the rest of your resume.

How do I get the best price for my home in today’s market? The past two years have led to record inventory levels in the N. Okanagan so Buyers now have plenty of choices available. To get your home sold:
1. Undergo cost effective improvements to your home if possible. Paint, ﬂooring, countertops, ﬁxtures and landscaping will help the visual wow of your home. 2. Get exposed! 60% of all the local sales are from out of town buyers. It’s vital to have maximum, far reaching market exposure in order to facilitate the best offer possible for your home. Imagine your home is for sale at an auction… how many potential buyers do you want to be there? 3. Consult with a Real Estate professional and have a CMA, (competitive marketing analysis) of your home prepared. This will give you a more accurate reﬂection of how your home stacks up to recent sales and active listings in your neighbourhood. Pricing competitively will reduce the odds of your home being over-looked or your home’s listing expiring.

The most common cause of gurgling is the lack of air in a plumbing system. In every plumbing system there needs to be air from the outdoors to allow it to work properly. The pipe that supplies the air is called a “vent”. When this vent pipe becomes blocked gurgling can occur. The best way to ﬁx this problem is to run an auger through the vent line and remove the blockage.

My T4 this year will be less than my personal tax credit, should I still file a tax return?
There are several reasons why you should still ﬁle a tax return. In order to recover any tax withheld by your employer or to qualify for HST, BC or other refundable tax credits, you must ﬁle a tax return. By ﬁling, you build up RRSP contribution room which may allow you to reduce future taxable income when earnings are higher. If you are a student, ﬁling a tax return will allow you to create unused credits that may be carried forward to reduce future taxes or be transferred to a parent or a spouse to reduce their taxes.
