The discovery conjures up images of Al Capone and gangsters. Fortunately for Lumby RCMP, the Second World War-era Thompson submachine gun – or “Tommy gun” – turned into the detachment by a local family wasn’t loaded. The Tommy gun was among six firearms brought to the detachment by a family after they had been cleaning out the residence of a family member who passed away. “The gun is considered a prohibited weapon under the Criminal Code,” said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce. “Had the deceased been found in possession of it prior to his death, it would have resulted in a serious criminal charge.” Turning in the firearms to police was the right thing to do. “It’s not an uncommon occurrence following a death in the family,” said Proce. “If you have old, unwanted firearms in your possession, feel free to bring them to us for destruction, rather than face prosecution or have them fall into the wrong hands.” Proce said police are looking into several options for the Tommy gun, such as housing the piece in a museum, rather than subjecting the historic weapon to destruction. In certain circumstances, a gun collector may possess such a weapon providing they have the proper documentation. In this case, the deceased did not have the necessary paperwork.

News West rises above disability ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

T

o put strangers at ease, Spencer West tells them he lost his legs by volunteering at a magic show. You know, the trick where someone from the audience gets put into a box, gets sawed in half and is then magically put back together again. Except, as West jokingly points out, in his case there was a problem with the “put back together� part. A native of Wyoming who now serves as a motivational speaker based out of Toronto, West – in Vernon to speak to students at Fulton and Vernon Secondary Schools – also tells people he left his legs in his other pair of pants. Or he’ll tell people he’s half-American, half-invisible. Or that he went camping and got stranded with nothing to eat. “There’s people in Wyoming who are now afraid to go camping after I tell them that story,� laughed West, drawing raucous laughter from the entire student body at Fulton Secondary. And with that laughter,

West, 29, has succeeded in his goal: getting people to laugh and see past the fact that he’s in a wheelchair, missing both legs above the knees, thanks to a genetic childhood disease which resulted in West losing his limbs before the age of five. He wants people to see what’s in here, pointing directly to his heart. From his early childhood, West has been told he was different. He was once told he’d never function in society. And he was bullied. Every single day of school. West was the last person chosen for any sport in gym class, and was only picked because he had to be chosen. One bully would come up from behind, grab his wheelchair, causing him to stop and all of his books would go flying off his lap. Rather than play sports, West hung out with the girls at his school, earning him taunts of gay, queer or faggot. “I was confused because I thought being gay meant I liked someone of the same sex. But here I was, hanging out with allllll of the ladies,� West smiled. “And all of the boys who were calling me names were hanging out

with each other.� In high school, West said he couldn’t play basketball because he would only come up to the knee of a teammate. He joked he couldn’t play football because he and a football were roughly the same size. So he became a cheerleader, and the first question someone asked is “What’s Spencer doing out there? This isn’t a disabled team.� West helped his high school win the state cheering championship, and West performed his signature cartwheel for the Fulton students and staff. “Bullying perpetuates hate,� said West. “There are statistics that show that 160,000 students in North America stayed home from school because of bullying. We can’t let this happen. Everyone should feel welcome at school.� West went to university and it was while attending school in Utah that he met a TV reporter named Reed Cowan, who invited West on a trip to Kenya to help build a school. The trip was life-altering for West. “I saw poverty first-hand,�

said West. “I met students living with AIDS and malaria. Girls would collect water from a river that looked like chocolate milk it was so full of disease, and that river would be miles away. They’d walk back carrying the water on their head. That’s pretty humbling when I can go to a tap and turn on water, or open a bottle.� After helping build the school, West returned to Kenya and was greeted enthusiastically by the students, including one girl who said, in Swahili, of West: “I didn’t know this sort of thing (loss of legs) could happen to white people, too.� “That statement showed me three things,� said West. “It showed me that all the while I was trying to fit in I missed the most obvious thing, that I was different for a reason. It showed me that we all have the ability and responsibility to lend a helping hand to someone who needs it. “And it showed me that my mom was right: I would find my way in this world.� Arriving in Vernon from another speaking engagement the day before in Chicago, West’s powerful

NORD stalls on race track issue RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The future of horse racing appears to be in limbo. The North Okanagan Regional District board decided Wednesday not to take any action on a proposed feasibility study for an equestrian centre. Directors also want a meeting with the Okanagan Equestrian Society, which has lobbied for support. “It sounds like we’re starting an equine centre, but they came to us,” said director Kevin Acton, who believes NORD has been left to take the lead on the issue. “We should let it sit until they show some interest.” Director Mike Gavinchuk insisted that the process should be placed on hold until a legal dispute between the society and the district is resolved. “Why go through all of this now?” he said. NORD and the City of Vernon own Kin Race Track and the society must leave the property by the end of this year. The society has taken NORD and the city to court, claiming equestrian activities were guaranteed when most of track was turned over to the city in 1964 for free. The society also claims NORD ignored an agreement for lease renewals. A tentative court date is set for June 2011. NORD had been considering possibly funding a $55,000 feasibility study for an equestrian centre based on input from the B.C. Lottery Corporation

R #

“Why go through all of this now?” — Mike Gavinchuk

and the Agricultural Land Commission. BCLC has stated that there is not the need for another gaming operation in the North Okanagan, and the ALC

opposes an equestrian centre on prime farm land. The ALC, though, has suggested it may consider a project on land that isn’t suitable

for farming or has been compromised by development. That is a route director Wayne Lippert wanted to pursue. “It’s worthwhile to show we’re doing something,” he said. “There could be land already out of the Agricultural Land Reserve in Lumby or Spallumcheen.” Al McNiven, parks and recreation general manager, suggested the board investigate land that may fit ALC criteria.

HOW WELL DOES AN INDEPENDENT GARAGE REALLY KNOW YOUR FORD VEHICLE? ®

MOTORCRAFT

“If the ALC was agreeable, the board would have to decide how you obtain that 100 acres,” he said. Director Patrick Nicol believes B.C. Lottery Corporation opposes an equestrian centre because it wants to limit competition for existing gaming operations. “This would be very different than what they have in place,” said Nicol.

News Lower speed limit demanded in Cherryville RICHARD ROLKE

“I’ve been told that if

the community wants it,

why would it be turned

down?”

PARAMA ODecember H 4&5 S Rec Center

Morning Star Staff

Cherryville residents want the brakes put on excessive speed in the community. The Ministry of Transportation is being asked to lower the speed on parts of Specht and North Fork roads from 80 to 50 kilometres an hour. Residents also want the area in front of Cherryville Elementary to go from 50 to 30 kilometres an hour. “There are children walking on the road all of the time and we’re afraid someone is going to get hurt,” said Eugene Foisy, North Okanagan Regional District director. Specht Road from Highway 6 to North Fork Road and North Fork Road from the Emporium store to Highway 6 includes several residences, the store, the community hall, Hanson Park and the school. “It’s downtown Cherryville. It’s our core,” said Foisy, adding that such high speeds are inappropriate in such a developed neighbourhood. “There’s a lot of foot traffic to the Emporium.” Foisy says there have been numerous close calls between motorists and pedestrians over the years. “If kids are on the road, there is no where for them to go.” It’s believed the speed limit dates back to when Specht Road used to serve as the highway through the community. The limit was never changed when the current highway route opened. “There’s 10 times the traffic we used to get. There’s tourists coming from Sugar Lake,” said Foisy. The NORD board is supporting the residents’ bid for a lower speed limit, and Foisy has had discussions with the Ministry of Transportation. “I’ve talked to Highways and they think it’s a good idea,” he said.

Spallumcheen skull likely centuries old ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

A human skull found by a work crew in Spallumcheen is possibly between 100- and 200-years old. Crews working for BC Hydro unearthed the skull and mandible (jaw bone) in the 200block of Emery Road on the morning of Nov. 8. “Police and coroner attended the scene and, after examining the skull, we’ve been advised it is from a historic burial,” Gord Molendyk, spokesman for the RCMP detachment. “The skull is likely several hundred years old.” The remains were handed over to the coroner service. The Okanagan Indian Band was notified and Molendyk said band representatives came out to have a look at the skull.

A provincial archaeological centre has also been notified.

No other bones were found at the scene, and Molendyk said there’s

Surviving Sin City

D

espite a depleted bank account and a liver that’s still in recovery, I can proudly say, “I survived Las Vegas.” Known as Sin City, Vegas can make or break you and at the same time it can be the best and worst experience of your life. I’m sure that rings true for a few of our fellow travellers who had some unfortunate losses. My husband and I made the Vegas trip Saturday with 10 others in celebration of my Jennifer Smith brother-in-law’s 30th birthday (he’s a Vegas die-hard). We spent three nights in the City of Sin, which wasn’t enough time to see and do everything we wanted. At the same time, any more than three days would be too much in Vegas (my body is still rebelling from all the partying). My first step onto the strip was the most intense moment of my life. I was nearly blown back onto my derriere the minute we left our hotel (The Monte Carlo) and saw all the lights. The size and scale of the buildings, elaborated by millions of flashing lights was blinding. I’m pretty sure my jaw hung open as I admired it all – and my neck is still sore from all the upward staring. Beers in hand (how cool is it that you can take your drink anywhere, except the bus, in Vegas?), our group headed out on the town. We stopped at a 7-11, where we picked up two cold ones for $4 (again, how cool is that?) then down the strip to take it all in. Despite an intense hangover the next morning (echoing a familiar rooftop scene of the movie The Hangover), my adrenaline bounced me out of bed to see and do more. We shopped, we drank, we gambled, we drank, we walked, we drank, we ate,

we drank, we watched a comedy show, we drank, we danced and, you guessed it, we drank. By Monday, my legs were like Jell-O from all the walking, yet, we trudged on. There’s just too much to see and do in Las Vegas that you can’t stop to rest, even if your body is begging you to stop. The way I figured, I can sleep anytime, but right now, I’m in Vegas baby! It’s hard to even explain how large all of the hotels are. Each has thousands of rooms, its own casino, several bars, theatres, shopping malls, restaurants, pools and more. It wouldn’t be hard to get lost in any one of them. And we did get lost trying to navigate to our room after check in – the hotel has three separate sets of elevators and of course we took the wrong one. If it weren’t for an accommodating security guard, I would probably still be wandering around Caesar’s Palace. There, the mall alone is about as big as the Village of Lumby. And if it weren’t for my brother- and sister-in-law, us Vegas virgins probably wouldn’t have ever found our way outside our own hotel in the first place. Therefore I encourage anyone going to Vegas for the first time (an experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list), to go with someone who’s been before. It will save you time and money. Also be prepared to do a lot of walking (my husband is still complaining about his sore legs). So bring comfy walking shoes or sandals. Be prepared to spend lots, whether you’re a gambler or not. Note that food and drinks are pricey in most hotels and restaurants, so watch the billboards and signs to find the deals, or buy your beers at the corner store. Bring sunscreen, a camera and Tylenol. And remember: what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas – so let loose and have fun!

Coldstream is the second North Okanagan community to learn that it will be losing its fire chief in the past week. Vernon chief Jeff Carlisle recently announced that he will be leaving the city for opportunities with the Kelowna Fire Department. And now Coldstream’s veteran chief Leo Lecavalier has announced he will be retiring from the district fire department. We wish them both well in their future endeavours and give equal thanks for all the time and dedication they have given to our communities. But particular thanks needs to be given to Lecavalier, who has dedicated more than 25 years of service to the community. Not only has he put his life on the line for the safety of others, but he has trained numerous others to do the same. In doing so, he has given up much of his personal and family time in order to serve the citizens (and complete substantial amounts of paperwork and administrative duties). A simple ‘thank you’ seems insignificant in comparison to all this local hero has done for Coldstream. Luckily, the community has until January to show its appreciation to Lecavalier. It will also be hard to say goodbye to the man who has fought for his fellow firefighters, his fire hall, his community and his citizens. But an even harder task will be the quest for a new chief. Surely, whoever steps up to the plate will be qualified and learn quickly through the team. But there are large shoes to fill, following a 27-year term of service.

System requires an overhaul

A

lot of people seem to be upset at Eric Foster in this town – so much so that they get personal with their evaluations. I don’t know the man. I think our system of government is more at fault than Mr. Foster. We elect officials that toe the party line or are relieved of power. We have a provincial policy-maker well supported no matter how ill-founded the ideas. We elect parties to govern by committee, but truly we elect a dictator and insulate them with followers. Governments have large egos and, as any parent or teacher can attest, if there is an absence of positive attention – bad behaviour at least gets some attention. The government of B.C. has very intelligent people directing traffic. Months in to paying a desperately unwanted and misunderstood tax, and we are on the hook for another 11 months before we can even vote? How much time does the government have to convince us that if we vote against HST we will lose social programs, education programs, health programs, and our shaky economy will crash? Do you think for a moment they’re going to tell us about all the special

SAVE RAIL LINE The current rail line from Kelowna to Salmon Arm needs to be kept in place. Instead of ever increasing road traffic, can we not be forward thinking and start planning for a renewal of environmentally friendly passenger and freight systems for our incredibly beautiful valley. If CP Rail wants to maximize real estate potential from this land, why not trade them for some adjoining Crown land, on condition that they develop a people-friendly commuter rail system, and encourage green housing eaturing connections to green rail passenger service. If CP Rail has no vision other than shortterm profit, then let us revive the spirit of our pioneers and rebuild the vision of the old S&O Railroad doing it with environmentally advanced, trend-setting technology. Imagine if our valley became a world leader in ultra-light, solarpowered rail service. Daniel Jacobson COMMUNITY GARDEN As the project co-ordinator for the development of the new West Vernon Community Garden, and with the gardening season coming to a close, I’d like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all of the generous supporters and donors

interest groups that will lose out – all the government staffers they might have to cut? We will be begging for the HST to save our lives and pave our roads. If they fail, we elect someone else. And they will do something else to make us mad at some point and we’ll elect someone else. All the while, we’ll pay big salaries, benefits, severances and travel costs for the folks we send off to Victoria to fight (?) for us.

who made it possible. A true community effort. The garden opened this spring with 50 raised garden beds on the school grounds of West Vernon Elementary. With the able hands of more than 30 gardeners, the space was transformed from a plain corner of grass to a beautiful, bounteous, colourful, visual delight. It was also a pleasure to be on the Communities in Bloom tour and to show the judges how our area is supporting community gardens. I anticipate that this garden will continue to be a popular site for residents in the downtown core, and will provide a number of recreational, social and health benefits for years to come. Wendy Aasen Community Garden Network Food Action Society CONTINUING SUPPORT On behalf of Okanagan College, I would like to express my greatest appreciation for your publication’s ongoing support of the Volunteer Adult Literacy Tutoring program. Both Cara Brady’s informative article and Katherine Mortimer’s help with the Community Calendar listings have brought a record 14 potential new tutors to the program! This is wonderful, and very timely in light of the increase in demand we

have seen this year. In the article Volunteering towards literacy, it is mentioned that the library and the Junction Literacy Centre both provide space for tutoring. I would like to add that the People Place has also been very generous in offering rooms for tutoring pairs to work in. I am grateful to all three organizations for their support.

HELP HAITI Since this article has been written, there have been some changes to my fundraising goal. I was originally raising money for one family's new home in Haiti, but now have joined forces with an American photographer who also accompanied myself on the trip to Haiti to help two other families. She has set up a Facebook cause page called: Building Homes and Changing Lives For Three Amazing Men. The page is where we are now saving money for two other families we met and grew close to. We were introduced to and became dear

Some seem shocked that Eric Foster is defending his job. I’m not. I think Mr. Foster really does agree with the policies of his party – that’s why he’s in it. That’s why I’m not. I would defend my job if threatened too – I like it. Either we overhaul the system to something where we feel well represented as voters, or we lump it. In fact, why not just vote in one MLA – the premier? She or he could still run things as she or he sees fit and we could save a lot of money. When time comes to re-elect, depose or overthrow – how much easier to remove one thorn than a whole bush? I have had communication with three MLAs in the last few years and each responded that they will bring “it” up with the premier. Ministers in charge of varied ministries that I’d supposed had some clout, some decision-making responsibility. I was wrong; they all check with the premier. So, why mess around with the middle-people? Let’s drop the façade and just communicate directly with the big cheese. I’d be willing to double the salary and guarantee a bridge named in their honour.

friends to these young men during our medical aid trip to Haiti in September, as they lodged and worked with us as our translators. One of their family's homes was completely destroyed and they are now living in a tent in a refugee camp, and the other two families's homes were badly damaged and in need of repairs. Since setting this page up a few weeks ago, we are already just over the $5,000 mark in donations, and have reset our goal to surpass $10,000 by Christmas to ensure that each family has enough money to have a foundation or a good head start to their new homes and new lives by this time. Also on this Facebook page you can find the stories of these three dear friends and their families including what life was like growing up in poverty, and how the earthquake has personally impacted them. You can also find additional information and details on the cause itself.

Subaru helps drive Masters Morning Star Staff

A world-class sports event has received substantial local support. Hilltop Subaru is providing $20,000 in sponsorship to the Sparkling Hill Masters World Cup, which runs from March 3 to 11, 2011 at Sovereign Lake. It will attract 1,200 cross-country skiers from 20 nations. “The event organizers approached us and we thought it was such a rare opportunity to be part of such a great international event,” said Andree Kosmino, with Hilltop Subaru. “We feel it’s important to provide corporate sponsorship to events like this. Hilltop Subaru is committed to being a good corporate community partner.”

Melissa Spooner, sponsorship chairperson, welcomes Hilltop Subaru’s participation. “Quite simply this event would not be possible without corporate donations,” she said. “We are a non-profit organization working towards putting on the best event possible for our visiting and local athletes. It’s vital we have the support of the business community.” To date, Hilltop Subaru is the lone silver sponsor with Sparkling Hill Resort being the title sponsor. Gold sponsorship goes to Silver Star Mountain Resort and Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre. Bronze sponsors include Kal Tire, ORA Restaurant Lounge, SkiTrax, Stussi Sport and Western Financial Group. The North Okanagan Regional District is providing $25,000.

Vernon police officer handed a fine A Vernon RCMP officer has been hit in the wallet following an internal code of conduct review after the officer pled guilty to a charge of failing to provide a breath sample. Const. Jody Turpin was advised that he will forfeit nine days of pay as a result of a disciplinary hearing. “The official report on the hearing is not back, but I’ve been advised by professional standards that he will forfeit nine days of pay,” said Sgt. Rob Vermeulen, senior media relations officer for the RCMP’s provincial E division headquarters in Vancouver. Turpin was arrested Dec. 19, 2009 after Vernon RCMP found him behind the wheel of his own personal vehicle in the downtown core at 2:30 a.m. The RCMP suspected he was about to drive while impaired. The constable pled guilty in provincial court in March to failing to provide a breath sample, was fined $1,000 and had his driver’s licence suspended for one year. A stay of proceedings was issued by Crown counsel on a charge of impaired driving. “Sanctions that can come out of a hearing can be anything from a written reprimand, up to 10 days loss of pay, demotion and all the way up to dismissal,” said Vermeulen.

Officer tracks down vehicle Morning Star Staff

Thanks to an observant and quick-thinking police officer, a car thief is behind bars. A Lake Country RCMP member was parked on Old Vernon Road and Highway 97 at 1:30 a.m. Monday when the member spotted a Toyota pickup that matched the description of a suspect vehicle involved in a commercial break-and-enter in Kelowna an hour earlier. The officer drove behind the southbound vehicle, without his emergency equipment activated, and was looking for a safe place to pull it over, when the suspect vehicle suddenly jumped the median and went across the oncoming lane onto McCurdy Road. When the pickup turned on to Franklyn Road from McCurdy Road, the officer activated his

emergency equipment but the suspect vehicle sped away. The pickup attempted to turn left from Franklyn onto Houghton Road, but was traveling too fast and the pickup struck a short steel pole and became stuck on it. The male driver ran from the vehicle but was quickly apprehended by police a short distance away. Police later confirmed the pickup had been stolen out of Kelowna. The suspect, 32, from Kelowna, is well-known to police. He will be facing charges of flight from police, dangerous driving, possession of stolen property and driving while disqualified. The man was remanded into custody pending a court appearance.

Jewelry stolen from Lumby residence Morning Star Staff

Lumby RCMP are searching for some determined thieves. On the night of Nov. 12, someone broke into a home in the 2300 block of Fir Street by prying and kicking in the rear door to gain entry. Once inside, the thief – or thieves – stole gold rings, necklaces, a Nikon camera and cash. The homeowner returned shortly after 10 p.m. to discover the break-in. “Determined breakins to homes in Lumby are fortunately rare, and we would like to keep it that way,” said Cpl.

Henry Proce. If you have any information regarding this crime, call the Lumby detachment at

250-547-2151 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS (8477). You can also leave information on the

Teens forgo sleep for food

GOING, GOING...ALMOST GONE. GET YOUR 2010 MAZDA BY NOVEMBER 30th.

Morning Star Staff

Teen Junction Youth Centre members and staff appreciate the support they receive from the community and they’re giving back with their 24-4-24 food bank fundraiser. Participants will be staying awake for 24 hours, from noon Saturday to noon Sunday. The community and businesses can help sponsor a youth with a donation of either $24 or 24 cans of food for the food bank. The youth raised more than $600 and a lot of food last year, the first for the event. They watched videos, played computer games and some middle-of-the night basketball to help stay awake. They were rewarded when Silver Star Rotary Club members showed up to make them breakfast. For more information or to make a donatio,n contact Michelle Freebairn at 250-307-4581 or e-mail info@teenjunction.ca. Drop off donations at 3104 37th Ave.

Campaign targets lung disease Morning Star Staff

As the B.C. Lung Association’s Christmas Seal campaign approaches its mid-way point, North Okanagan residents are asked to help fight lung disease. For more than 100 years, Canadians have been using the holiday-themed seals on their mail in order to both raise awareness of and funds for lung disease. One in five British Columbians struggle with asthma, lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. “Our target for the 2010 campaign is $1 million,” said Kathy Wylie, a Vernon resident and a BCLA director. “The Christmas Seal campaign is our biggest fundraising campaign of the year, and we’re urging people to give as much as they can to help us maintain the important lung health research and community education programs we deliver all year round.” This year’s campaign began in mid-October and runs through January 2011. About one million households across British Columbia have already received their Christmas Seals. “They are a very visible way of showing that

people care about the continuing fight against lung disease,” said Wylie. The money raised through donations is used to fund medical research into the treatment and prevention of lung disease, to fund programs and services in communities across B.C. for those with lung disease and to help children choose a smokefree lifestyle. To make a donation, call 1-800-665-5864 or go to bc.lung.ca.

Hot Flashes Driving You up the Wall ? E

very Thursday evening, my friends and I get together for a walk, a light-hearted social event or just a friendly chat over a cup of tea. And when we get together, do you know what we talk about? Menopause! We talk about how horrible it is to wake up umpteen times in the middle of the night because of night sweats. We talk about how unbearable our partners and families have become because we are endlessly frustrated and agitated. Agitated about what? Because we are suffering from up-and-down mood swings, uncontrollable weight gain and we just can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep. And that’s just the beginning. We call hot flashes our own “private Caribbean vacations.” Some of my girlfriends carry a towel to dry themselves off after their hot flashes. There’s also anxiety attacks and other health problems including vaginal dryness, nausea and tons of weight gain. Menopause really sucks.

It seems that as we age, our metabolism changes, generally slowing down, causing the body to function at a much slower rate. Less estrogen is produced causing hormone fluctuations. These hormonal fluctuations are thought to be the cause of many of the adverse symptoms.

And as if that wasn’t enough, about eight years ago, a major clinical study on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) was abruptly stopped after results showed the overall risks of HRT far outweighed the benefits! This included an increased risk of breast cancer, heart disease, stroke and blood clots. Thanks, but no thanks. So what’s a 50-something woman supposed to do? That’s one of the many things we talk about on Thursday nights and, what we have discovered is that there are some very effective natural remedies for the symptoms of menopause. Like MenoSense. MenoSense is a natural formula with Black Cohosh, ideal for improving menopause symptoms. And Chasteberry, to help restore your estrogen/progesterone balance plus Dong Quai, to help relieve the symptoms of menopause, especially your hot flashes. If you want help to relieve the symptoms of menopause, visit Nature’s Fare Markets and ask a b o u t MenoSense. You’ll be very glad you did.

Snakes stumble on Sunshine Coast Morning Star Staff

The Powell River Kings are a lot like the Vernon Vipers were two years ago – iron-clad defence with plenty of veteran leadership. The host Kings used that senior savvy to brush back the youthful Snakes 5-2 in B.C. Hockey League play Wednesday night at Hap Parker Arena. The first-place Kings (19-4-1-2), who have just two home regulation losses and the boast league’s best goals against average (1.90), were led by a goal and two helpers from 20-year-old blueliner Justin DaSilva. “They’re probably the oldest team in the league – two 20s and four 19-year-olds on the back end,” said Vipers’ head coach Mark Ferner. “Our guys did a lot of really good things, but our age showed at times.” In particular, Ferner was referring to a stint midway through the third period where the Vipers gave up two goals in less than a minute. The game was tied 2-2 and Vernon appeared to be gaining momentum, but they lost a defensive faceoff and the Kings got the puck back to second star DaSilva, who fired the winner through traffic, post and in, for his fifth goal at 9:51. On the very next shift, Powell River had Vernon scrambling in their own end and Matt Garbowsky (first star) capitalized with his 16th goal before 670 fans. “We were right there and then the wheels fell off,” said the Viper bench boss. Ferner made a commitment to take on a younger team at the start of the season, and he has been patient in allowing his talented squad develop. His willingness to wait is likely aided by the fact that Vernon is treading water in the top half of the Interior pool at 12-8-1-5. However, he hinted that if his team’s progress doesn’t match expectations, changes may become necessary. “It was important to (give it time) and see where we were at after 25 games,” he said. “We’ve seen some kids getting better and some who are staying the same.” After back-and-forth play throughout the first period, the Kings opened the scoring with three minutes to play when Carter Shinkaruk (4th goal) converted a play with Cohen Adair and Andrew Pettitt. Third star Daniel Schuler (6th) made it 2-0 on a power-

Hockey League play Wednesday night at Hap Parker Arena. play, getting the puck by netminder Blake Voth (27 saves) on a goal-mouth scramble with 10 seconds to go in the period. Viper defenceman Stevie Weinstein had a good chance to cut the lead in half, but netminder Michael Garteig (25 saves) denied the Los Angeles native on his breakaway attempt. After some good movement on a Vernon powerplay, defenceman Adam Thompson (4th) pounced on a loose puck in the high slot, ripping a shot past Garteig at 15:56 of the second period.

Vernon’s Mike Zalewski (7th) made it 2-2 just over a minute into the third period, hustling down the wing and firing a bullet to the top shelf. Powell River’s Mike Sones (4th) completed the scoring with an empty-netter in the final minute. The Vipers will look to snap a three-game skid as they visit the Coquitlam Express (10-10-1-4) tonight at the Sports Centre. They will conclude the four-game coastal swing against the Langley Chiefs (16-8-0-4) and Surrey Eagles (15-9-0-1) Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Gardner buries Laface with four-point seventh end Morning Star Staff

Jon Gardner looks to be in fine form heading into the junior regional curling playdowns this weekend in Salmon Arm. The Sladen Moore skip posted a four-point seventh end to outlast Wayne Laface’s Inspiration Homes 10-6 in Baron Insurance Super League play Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club. Laface (4-3) opened with a deuce, but Gardner (4-3) responded with four points in the second end. Laface drew to the pin in three and stole two more in four after Gardner missed a run-back.

Blake Kimura’s Village Green Hotel used a pair of big ends to brush back Kayla Gunner’s Armstrong Inn 9-3. The two rinks exchanged singles until Kimura (3-4) broke the game open with four in the fourth end and a single steal in the fifth. The veteran skip collected three more in the seventh end as Gunner dipped to 2-5. T.J. Perepolkin’s Canaccord Wealth Management recovered from an early lapse to gong Jenn Gerow’s Gateway Mechanical 6-1. After allowing a single steal in the first end, Perepolkin, now 3-5, collected points in five straight ends to put the game away. Gerow is 1-7.

Brad Kuhn’s North Enderby Timber secured first overall at 7-1 with a 6-1 win over Ty Griffith. Kuhn took control with a pair of clutch draws for a deuce in one, followed by a single steal in two and triple steal in three. Griffith, now 5-2, answered with a single in four then opted for handshakes. Dave Merklinger’s Jet Ice earned a share of third place with Griffith as they doubled Jeff Richard’s B.C. Trailer 8-4. Leading by one heading into the final end, Merklinger (5-2) made a sensational triple run-back double for three points. The trailer crew is 0-7.

The Vernon Kokanee Swim Club enjoyed stellar results at the Kelowna Aqua Jets Fall Classic at the H2O Pool last weekend in Kelowna. There were 186 swimmers competing from Penticton KISU, Kelowna Aqua Jets, West Kelowna Liquid Lightning, Kamloops Classic, Summerland Orca, Shuswap Swim Club, Kootenay Swim Club and Regina. A total of 14 Kokanee achieved 100 per cent personal best times (improvement in all their swims): Alexander Dlouhy, Matai Dusil, Jade Freeman, Megan Heggenstaller, Talor Kelly, Caitlin Kinnear, Anika Kintzel, Meredith Levorson, Sean Manchester, Hannah Mehain, Kenyon Neumann, Florian Terpstra, Mareike Vahlenkamp and Isabelle Waltar-Sacrey. Levorson showed the largest improvement, shaving 87 seconds off her 800metre freestyle time. Kelly went under the four-minute mark in the 200-m IM, and Emma Levorson nearly beat her freestyle time in the 800-m backstroke. “There was a lot of improvement, not

Meanwhile, Meredith Levorson and

Joe Byram have made the top-25 in the TAG (Top Age Group) ranking system from the Swim News Magazine, for the 2010 Long Course season. Meredith ranked 21st in the 400-m freestyle for Under 10 girls in Canada. In the 15-17 boys division, Byram was sixth in both 100- and 200-m backstroke, eighth in 200-m freestyle, ninth in the 200-m IM and 12th in 400-m freestyle. The Kokanee have ventured north for the Prince George Barracuda Medical Northern Spring Meet this weekend.

Titans rule Merritt tourney Cancer. Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Talon Benefits Titans outscored their opponents 29-3 on the way to capturing gold at the Merritt Midget House Hockey Tournament last weekend. The Titans relied on stingy team defence to snuff the Vernon Nedco Blazers 4-1 in the A final. After opening with an 11-0 drubbing of Merritt, the Titans dispatched a talented Port Moody squad and a stubborn Salmon Arm side by identical 7-1 scores. With all three forward lines firing and an efficient defensive effort by Hayden Jones, Brodie Homeniuk, Quin Finocchio, Austin Lewarne, Jordan Melvin and Adam Michelin, the Titans dominated from the start. Coaches were particularly impressed by the work of the forward line of Gavin Opp, Garrett Dansereau and Phil Wilson. Backstopping the effort were goalies Zoran Bos and Evan Campagnolo. In other Midget tournament play, the Vernon Seed Orchard Ducks settled for silver as they fell 10-7 in a slugfest against Kimberley last weekend in Castlegar. Tyler Yawney faced 46 shots as the Ducks got a pair of goals each from Cody Hounslow and Marcus Kehler, and singles from Kyle Evans, Mike Vassberg and Justin Hiscoe. Providing assists were Hayden Pasacreta, Kehler, Hiscoe, Nathan Meyer, captain Nick Gallant, Hounslow and Dustin Stansiuk. Coaches Del McNeil and Rande Evans were very proud of their team’s play, citing discipline and hard work as the reasons for their success. Pasacreta collected 2+1 as the Ducks opened the tourney with a 4-4 draw against Kelowna. Secondary scoring came from Gallant and Billy Butler. Yawney made 18 saves. Hayley Silcocks had a standout game with 1+3 and Vassberg added 3+2 as the Ducks pounded

Nakusp 8-2 Saturday morning. The afternoon saw the Ducks jump out to an early two-goal lead against Nelson before clinching a 5-3 win Saturday. Vernon used two goals from Pasacreta and singles from Vassberg, Evans and Hiscoe. Later that day, Vassberg netted the hat trick as the Ducks punished Nakusp 8-2. Butler fired two goals and Hounslow and Evans each had one. Yawney backstopped the Ducks to a 8-2 decision over Trail/Rossland in Sunday semifinal play. Scoring came from Butler (2+1), Vassberg (2), Evans, Meyer, Pasacreta, and Hounslow. In Sunday Midget Super League action, Ashton Edwards pulled the hat trick as the host Lumby Stars ambushed the North Okanagan Knights 9-2. While not overly busy, Stars’ netminder Mike Britch was sharp when needed. Wyatt Warnes (2+2), Jagger Ward (2), Brad Haslam and Kyle Weston also scored for Lumby. Aaron Campeau and Darcy Schenkeveld each pocketed a trio of assists. Layton Theodore and Ian Bulmer handled North Okanagan’s scoring, with assists to Lynden Tucker and Dylan Preece. Said Stars’ assistant coach Mike Langlois: “I was happy with the improved attitude and team play. We are getting better every week.” After falling 7-2 to the Winfield Bruins #2 Saturday, the Advertising Works Broad Street Bullies rebounded by upending first-place Salmon Arm #1 9-2 Saturday in Sicamous. With just seven skaters, the Bullies got 4+4 from Brad Jones, 3+2 from Brett Mitchell and a single from Cam Strike to give netminder Jayden Campbell the win. Erik Grebliunas and Jones were the goal scorers in a rough game against Winfield.

Continued from A28 With just two full lines and a goalie, the DCT Chambers Trucking Bantam Red Bulls stampeded Kelowna 9-5 to claim gold at a Bantam tournament in Valemount. Avenging an earlier 9-4 loss to Kelowna in round-robin play, the Red Bulls hit the scoreboard first with a Connor Smidt rocket from the point. Trailing 2-1 after the first period, the Bulls fired five unanswered goals to seize control. Backed by solid tending by Yager Krenz, the line of Landon Ehnes, Russell Day and Danielle Butler combined for 10 points. Colten Bonneau added a single and Smidt got his second goal. Vernon opened the tourney with a 5-1 win over Prince George on the strength of two goals by Tim Ufintseff. Day and Mark Trznaadel added singles. After the loss to Kelowna, the DCT Chambers crew grounded the Lumby Stars 5-1, dominating play from the start. Trznaadel started the scoring, Ufintseff added three assists and Daniel Desjarlais chipped in with a helper. Day supplied 1+2, Smidt added a single and Butler pocketed a pair, but the Bulls lost Brittany Jackson for the final due to injury. The Stars’ lone goal was scored by Jayden Pedersen, with help from Keenan MacDonald. Corey Tinney faced more than 40 shots and Zachary Kuperus was Game MVP. In the bronze-medal game, Tinney recorded the shutout as the short-benched Stars blanked the McBride Grizzlies 5-0. MacDonald paced the Star offence with 3+1, with singles from Pedersen and Connor Fair. Assists were from Kuperus and Edwin Hayman. Logan Meier earned Game MVP. Lumby opened the tourney with three Saturday games, starting with a 5-3 win over the Grizzlies. MacDonald (3G), Shale Williamson and Hayman handled the scoring. Tinney was Game MVP. Meier collected 3+1 as the Stars soared past the Valemount Wildcats 11-0. MacDonald (2+3), Kuperus, Fair, Hayman, Kevin Fuller, Ashley Tinney, and Faren Gosselin also scored. Tinney got the shutout, Pederson was Game MVP. Nik Wasylyk had a weekend to remember as he erupted for eight goals in a pair of Bantam Super League wins for Denny’s Saints. The fearless forward scored five times as the Saints slammed the Vernon Authentic Plaque and Trophy Hitmen 11-5 Friday at Priest Valley Arena, and added three more Saturday at PV when the

North Okanagan Knights netminder Denver Trumbley is a very busy guy Saturday morning as Elias Wery swoops in on yet another Hawks rush in Atom Super League play at Wesbild Centre. Saints stopped the Salmon Arm Honda Flyers 5-1. Chris Gallant, with 3+2, Layne Greene and Lucas Colgan, each with 1+2, and Max Mitchell completed the Saints’ attack versus the Hitmen.

Lucas Mitchell (2+2), Alex Strutt (2+1), Hannah Scherck (1+3) and Ryan Pelkey completed the scoring. Liam Cromarty supplied three assists and Brooke Toop played a solid two-way game. The Scotiabank Bantam Scorpions split their weekend games, falling 10-6 to Salmon Arm Finch & Co. Warriors Friday and caging the Winfield Bruins 8-5 Sunday. Devin Prizmic earned his first goal of the year, while Brock Wagner and Rowyn Lewis-Hatherly each had a pair in the Scorpions’ loss. Wagner (3+1), Aaron Keryluke (2+2) and Ben Aspenlieder (2+1) led Vernon’s Sunday offence. In Pee Wee action, the Butcher Boys Red Wings collected three of four points with a win and a tie against host Enderby. Cole Benjaminsen recorded two goals and two helpers as the Wings clipped Enderby 4-3 Saturday. Steele Pelletier and Brooke Berube, with the winner, rounded out the Vernon offence.

Emily Ferguson fired five goals, including the equalizer with two minutes remaining, as the TORL Belle U19s salvaged a 6-6 tie with the Kelowna Open (19+) team in ringette play Sunday at Priest Valley Arena. Trailing 4-2, Kelowna rallied with four straight goals. Lindsay Macleod pulled TORL within a goal before Ferguson collected the equalizer. Assists came from Paige Castle, Summer Jesperson, Karli Mazu, Delanie Thorlakson and Rylee English. Said TORL assistant coach Stew Macleod: “The girls came out real fast in the first half, making real nice plays in front of the net.”

The Vernon Christian Royals earned their third straight trip to the B.C. senior A boys volleyball championships with a third-place finish at the Valleys last weekend. The Royals came out strong, grounding the Clearwater Raiders 2-1 (25-22, 23-25 17-15). They then fell 2-0 (10-25, 13-25) to eventual champions, the Immaculata Mustangs from Kelowna, but rebounded to gong the Kelowna Christian Knights 2-1 (25-22, 14-25, 15-7). Outside hitters Daniel Koch and Branden Hoogendoorn led the team with strong serving, and right side Sam Koch provided solid kills and key blocks. Setter Aaron Spence and middle Jordan Vandermeulen also had solid performances. In the semifinals, the Royals dropped a close three-set decision (25-13, 25-22, 10-15) in a rematch with the Knights. With a B.C. berth on the line, the Royals squeaked by the Raiders 2-1 (14-25, 25-21, 15-12) in the bronze-medal game. After losing the first set decisively, the Royals settled into their game-plan of ball distribution and placement of hits and tips, along with solid defence to take the second. With the Royals down 8-11 in the third set,

Adam McCaffrey came off the bench and frustrated Clearwater with multiple back-row digs. Outside hitters Hoogendoorn and Travis Hoogland hit key shots down the line in the rally. Sam Koch sealed the victory with a right side crosscourt kill. “All of the players came out ready to sacrifice their bodies to win. Captain Connor Yskes, Daniel Koch, Sam Koch, Hoogendoorn, and McCaffrey made many incredible defensive saves to give us a chance to score and win,” said Royals’ head coach Chris Bannick. “Tyrell and Travis Hoogland, Jason Vanboven, and Adam Ensing provided great support all weekend; it was a complete team effort.” The Royals head to the provincials, Nov. 25-27 in Duncan. ■ In senior AAA girls action, the Fulton Maroons shut out the Okanagan Mission Huskies (3-0 25-5, 25-9, 25-12) Tuesday night at Fulton Gym. The Maroons are hosting AAA girls Valleys, starting today at Fulton Gym. Pool play begins at 1:15 p.m., with the playoffs Saturday – semifinals at 10 a.m. and noon, and finals are at 2 p.m. Meanwhile, the Seaton Sonics are hosting senior AA girls Valleys, with preliminaries starting today at 1:30 p.m. The gold-medal game goes Saturday at 2:45 p.m.

Hawks tank Sharks in shootout Morning Star Staff

Steve Ensing and Jamie Renton connected in a shootout as the Alexander’s Pub Blackhawks clipped the Aquatico Bay Bar & Grill Sharks 4-3 in Interior Hockey League play Wednesday night at Wesbild Centre. The Sharks jumped out to an early lead on two goals by Vernon Miskosky, but Ensing cut the lead in half before the intermission. Singles by the Sharks’ Ryan Robertson and Hawks’ Brendon Caron and Colten Chase forced the shootout where Miskosky was the lone Shark to

solve Jason Webster. In the other Wednesday nighter, Matt Glinsbockel dialed up an eight-point night as the Westwood Cabinet Flyers stunned the Blue Jay Concrete Hornets 11-3 at Wesbild. Logan Massie supplied a deuce for the Flyers, while Shawn Ovington and Jarett Pereboom answered with a goal and assist each for the Hornets. Cody Schmidt had a goal and three helpers as the Re/Max Rangers stuffed the Sharks 5-2 Tuesday at Civic Arena.

Sports Cats fall to Mission

Hoggard hits 400 KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Last February, Keith Hoggard left a two-pin standing and settled on a 398 single at Lincoln Lanes. Fast forward to Sunday, Oct. 26 and Hoggard reeled off a strike, chop-off (leaving a two- and three-pin) and a miss for a sizzling 410. It was the first 400 game of the 16-year-old Fulton student's bowling career. He was aged two when he began using both hands to roll balls down the alley at the now defunct Polson Bowling Centre. "I had a good feeling that day," said Hoggard, who throws a lightning-fast ball. "I was the only one on my team there and I was pretty nervous coming to the end of that game." Hoggard took a 256 average into that Sunday afternoon YBC Seniors league series. He opened with a 258, followed with the 410 and finished with a 246 for a career-best 914 triple. He bowls for the twosome Pin Pickers, with Levi Smith, who was absent that Sunday. Hoggard picked up several discount coupons, a VIP card from Kelly O'Bryans, donuts from Tim Hortons and Pepsi product. He also gets a trip to the Provincial 400 Club Tournament next fall in Surrey. Born in Vernon, Hoggard moved over to Lincoln Lanes six years ago. "It's a fun sport. It's nice to meet lots of new people in the tournaments. I'm going in the Youth Games Nov. 28 at Capri Lanes in Kelowna. It's five games, pins over your average."

The VSS Panthers found out why the Mission Roadrunners are the No. 1 rated junior AA varsity team in B.C. Ryan Messer supplied Vernon’s lone score, a fiveyard run in the fourth quarter, as the Cats suffered a 37-6 loss to the powerhouse coastal squad in provincial playoff action Wednesday in Abbotsford. Said VSS head coach Sean Smith: “Despite the lopsided score, I was very happy with the way the boys played. They played hard to the final whistle and didn’t let up. “Our offence couldn’t get anything going as our passing game was not executing. They started to put eight defenders in the box to play the focus on the run and our backs didn’t see much daylight after that.” Smith thanked coaches Brian Forrest (defence), Collin Lodder (line) and Dave Tetrault (defence) for their dedication.

G

eneral Rick Hillier, retired commander of the Canadian Forces, referred to the neglect given the Canadian Forces by the former Liberal government as the “decade of darkness.” When our Conservative government was elected in 2006, in tandem with the Canadian Forces, we tabled the Canada First Defence Strategy, a detailed road-map for the modernization of the Canadian Forces. The vision included the re-equipment of the CF, increasing CF personnel levels, and scoping deployment criteria with a focus on Canada’s Arctic. In the early 1990s, the government of Canada was set to replace the aging Sea King fleet of helicopters but the

supplier of the F-35 Lightning II. Canada committed $150 million to help in the development of this fighter with the understanding that we would want to acquire the aircraft. In July, our government committed to buying 65 F-35s over a period from 2015 to 2030 at a cost of $9 billion (for aircraft, simulators, training, infrastructure, initial spares) with an additional $7 billion for 20 years of support services. Under the multinational memorandum of understanding, Canadian aerospace companies also have the opportunity to win contracts for many aspects of the assembly and support of the aircraft. As Norway, the U.K., Australia, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, Turkey, the U.S. and Israel all agreed to

purchase the F-35, it is estimated the value of the contracts to the Canadian aerospace industry will be in the range of $12 billion. In these economic

times, the costs are huge but we need to make the decision now and move forward. There will always be second guessing by couch quarterbacks

but the ones making the decisions must be given our trust as they weigh their choices while keeping in mind the best interests of all Canadians.

The utility’s customer-service department has received a number of calls from customers throughout the province who say some telemarketers are misrepresenting themselves as B.C.

0ERUVIANRESTORESNEWLIFEIN#ANADA DEBBEE POOLE Special to The Morning Star

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a special occasion in Andahuaylillas in the Andes and awe-inspiring organ music can be heard in the small town once again, as it was back in the 1600s. The organ is so huge, one musician is playing the keyboard while two people pump air. One of his greatest achievements, Lucho VeraFlores worked on the restoration of the organ, which belongs to the chapel built in 1636 in Andahuaylillas, near Machu Picchu in VeraFloresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; native Peru. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pipes were so badly aged they were bent like pasta, and the bellows were rotten and torn,â&#x20AC;? said the artisan, who now calls Lumby home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took more than eight months to restore this enormous instrument, piece by piece, to its original beauty.â&#x20AC;? VeraFlores moved to Canada in 2001 from Cusco, Peru, where he worked as a restoration technician, restoring oil paintings, antiques, sculptures and frescos hundreds of years old. He now makes rings and pendants in silver and copper, which will be on display at the Okanagan Artisans Guildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 31st annual show and sale in Vernon Nov. 26 and 27. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also work in gold and set stones, but at the moment, most of my work is in silver,â&#x20AC;? he said. As a teenager growing up in the metropolis of Cusco, VeraFlores was enthralled by the city â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; its music, buildings, the colonial architecture, the place itself. He would walk the streets wondering what stories the walls of the incredible buildings and structures could tell of the former Inca civilization, and was mesmerized by the large, heavy stones and how they had been lifted and carved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I noticed the perfection of the workmanship and the importance of ritual, place and tradition in both the Incan and colonial architecture,â&#x20AC;? he said. After attending high school, VeraFlores went on to study to be a dental technician. He enjoyed the artistic undertaking of carving in wax to make dentures. Later, he was presented with an opportunity to attend the School of Restoration in Cusco. The course took threeand-a-half years to complete.

COURTESY OF DEBBEE POOLE

Antique restorer and silversmith Lucho VeraFlores works in his Lumby studio. The Peruvian artisan takes part in the Okanagan Artisans Guildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 31st annual show and sale at the Vernon Lodge Nov. 26 and 27. Asked what he finds most satisfying about restoration work, VeraFlores said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get to bring something back to life. When I restore an antique, sometimes hundreds of years old, it does make me wonder about the original artist. To use traditional materials to fix a painting takes me back in time.â&#x20AC;? VeraFlores remembers working on a 100-year-old fresco â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a painting executed on fresh, moist plaster with pigments dissolved in water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were cleaning the fresco; special windows were created to be able to see behind (where we found) another fresco, maybe 400 years old,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find my objective is to forget time and stay calm. This is a good trade for me. I seem to have the right personality for doing this kind of work.â&#x20AC;?

VeraFlores met his Canadian wife, Joanna, in Cusco, where she was working as a volunteer at a shelter for abandoned teenage mothers. (She is now a science and Spanish teacher at W.L. Seaton Secondary School.) The couple bought their log home in Lumby in 2006 and their daughter, Zoila, was born in 2009. They now grow a garden and raise animals for food, and have a great love for canoeing. Last year the family embarked on a onemonth canoeing trip, traversing the Yukonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wind River. Baby Zoila enjoyed the trip too, safely seated at the bow of the canoe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone should take time out to do this,â&#x20AC;? said VeraFlores, describing the peace he experienced from the wilderness. Lumby reminds VeraFlores of his mountain home in the Andes â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the lakes and mountains â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though the altitude is different at 14,000

feet, compared to Lumbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1,625 feet. He found it difficult to adjust at first, coming from a large city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find that my own personal space is bigger and I have more time (to create). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peaceful and the air here is fresh.â&#x20AC;? Wanting another trade and line of work while establishing his restoration business in Canada, VeraFlores decided to pursue a desire to make jewelry. Richard Pearson at J.C. Bradley Jewellers in the Village Green Mall gave him the opportunity to learn goldsmithing. After three years, VeraFlores is now a qualified gold and silversmith, grateful for the skills he acquired, giving him what he needed to create his own designs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My art restoration skills prepared me for the need to pay attention to detail and James Lalonde, the master goldsmith, was a terrific teacher.â&#x20AC;? VeraFlores uses .950 silver, as the 95 per cent purity gives the finished work a brighter look. He especially loves copper because he says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so â&#x20AC;&#x153;warm.â&#x20AC;? After discovering his home needed new water pipes, VeraFlores salvaged the old pipe containing copper to make into pendants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every one is unique â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no two pieces of art are ever the same. I love that. Every piece I think is meant for (a particular) someone,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art is the creation of an original piece. It is to encounter the true spirit of the chosen material and, through the work of the hands, bring it forward. The designs come from the desire to create, feel and love this spiritual meeting. It is passion.â&#x20AC;? VeraFlores has been selling his jewelry at the farmers markets in Vernon and Kelowna, and has also introduced his specialized service as a restorer of antiques and, particularly, oil paintings. He has completed restorations for three clients in the Okanagan. VeraFlores is one of a number of artisans showing their work at the Okanagan Artisans Guild Show and Sale at the Best Western Vernon Lodge. Hours of the show are Friday, Nov. 26 from noon to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. His website can be found at www.luchosart.com.

Fulton drama students Ross Freeman-Marsh and Emily Fochler star in Cupid and Psyche, a modernized story based on a Greek myth staging at the school theatre Nov. 24 to 26.

Dish on Greek theatre Morning Star Staff

Clarence Fulton Secondary School students may want to use paper plates when they stage their third annual dinner theatre production at the school next week. After all, there could be some plate throwing and yells of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opa!â&#x20AC;? at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greek-themed show. This year, the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drama students are taking a journey through notso-ancient Greece, with the modernized mythical story of Cupid and Psyche. Deemed as a philosophical comedy, Cupid and Psyche follows the arrowslinging son of Aphrodite, who gets a little taste of his own medicine when he becomes smitten by a beautiful mortal. The coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love story begins rather inauspiciously, when Psyche is coerced into marriage, and is then whisked off to Cupidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s castle, which turns out to be his uncle Apolloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer house, said Fulton drama teacher Deanne Collinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Their) married life begins in the dark, both figuratively and literally. When curiosity gets the better of her, and she actually takes a peak at her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face, she opens up a whole Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s box of complications.â&#x20AC;?

Meddling gods, Apollo and Aphrodite, add fuel to the fire as they get into the act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although comical, the play does examine the nature of true love, and will give audiences something to think about,â&#x20AC;? said Collinson, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a wonderful cast of characters, some new to the stage, and some returning.â&#x20AC;? The evening will start with a delicious Greek-inspired meal prepared by students in Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooks training program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not to brag, but Greek is (cooks training teacher Erin) Schroederâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specialty,â&#x20AC;? said Collinson. Cupid and Psyche previews Wednesday at 7 p.m. with dessert served at intermission. Tickets are $8. The full dinner theatre show takes place Thursday, Nov. 25 and Friday, Nov. 26 with dinner served at 6 p.m. Patrons will be seated and served as they arrive, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to arrive on time, said Collinson. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. Dessert will again be served at intermission. Call the school to book tickets in advance at 250-545-1348.

’m certain I’ve seen worse movies this year than Skyline, but, at the moment, I honestly can’t think of any. Skyline isn’t supposed to be a great film; it’s designed to be a hokey B-movie creature feature. At least, that’s what I hope it was trying to be. Because if the think tank behind this sci-fi drool was actually shooting for something legit, Jason Armstrong they failed even more miserably had they just admitted it. And then this would be an even bigger hunk of fromage than I originally thought. In a rip-off of Independence Day, War of the Worlds, Cloverfield, District 9 and almost every movie involving extraterrestrials and the frightened human beings they call on, a Los Angeles birthday party is interrupted by massive blue lights that stream down from the sky. If you look directly at the Smurf-like glow, like one unfortunate partygoer in the ritzy high rise apartment does, you get a possessed look on your face, you instantly appear to have the worst sunburn ever (complete with big veins poppin’ out), and you walk towards the

Slimy creatures start to roam the L.A. streets, looking for those who didn’t look at the light. And if they getcha, they eat your brains. How Romero of them. The special effects in Skyline are pretty awful, but that isn’t the department in which Skyline emits its biggest stench. Perhaps directors Greg and Colin Strause, coming off an Aliens Versus

Youth talent plays role in fest’s success

Predators sequel, didn’t get the memo that horror movies are allowed to have a bit of personality. Their characters here, mostly a gathering of attractive TV stars like Eric Balour (Haven), Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Scottie Thompson (Trauma), are strictly cardboard cutouts. They run, they scream, and they do dumb things – yes, dumb enough to get their brains devoured. Unfortunately for all of us, that last part doesn’t go down near fast enough.

“Last year alone, over 1,000 musicians contacted us to request the opportunity to play at the festival, and right now there are over 750,000 hits on You Tube for both Rarearth and Our Kids Have Talent,” said Raeber. Local businesses have also played a major factor, providing sponsorship as well as other necessities needed to hold a successful event. “I am beyond grateful to local businesses that have stepped up to the plate with their sponsorship and their continued support year after year,” said Raeber. “Now the society will be able to provide anyone sponsoring the event with a charitable donation receipt.” Raeber also credits the city and its employees who have tried to make Rarearth economically vital to Vernon, as the IPE is to Armstrong or the PNE is to Vancouver. This year Rarearth was nominated for Best New Business, Best Green, Best Community Supporter, and Best Marketer at the Vernon Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards. “With a team of over 200 volunteers and the loyal leaders who work tirelessly and collectively using their talents to push the festival, we still need the push from the community itself as there is no greater advertising than positive word of mouth and no greater feeling of pride for a community who becomes united towards a common goal,” said Raeber. Applications and registration forms for next year’s Our Kids Have Talent contest are now available at www.ourkidshavetalent.com. Auditions will take place Jan. 29 and 30, with a gala featuring the top-10 performances March 19. On Saturday, Epic Records signed artist and local up-and-comer Andrew Allen, who is about to set off on his first U.S. tour, will give a three-hour workshop to youth on behalf of Rarearth and Our Kids Have Talent. Registration is needed to attend. Cost is $25. Visit the Our Kids website for more information.

Giving the gift that lasts CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Everyone’s been there, either searching desperately for a gift for someone hard to buy for, or receiving an unsuitable gift that is promptly re-gifted. What the givers and receivers are all doing is well-meant and friendly and many gifts are treasured. But for those who would like a change this year, a visit to the Give A Lasting Gift gift fair is just the thing. “I have done volunteer work in Kenya and I’m always looking for ways to help charities,” said Melanie Abbott, who got the idea for the gift fair after reading Three Cups of Tea, by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin, a true story about a man who builds schools for girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan. “At the end of the book there were ideas for fundraisers where one person could make a difference. I knew I had to do it. I contacted some friends and they all said yes. The friends are Niki Knight, Teresa Bowers, Laura Schutz and Cory Abbot, who all work in social service professions in the area. “I really liked the idea. I saw how we could organize a place where people could come and make donations to local and international charities and get a holiday card to send to the recipient about the gift that was made in their name,” said Schutz. The organizers will provide a place where the agencies can have information about their services. The shoppers can buy as many donation vouchers as they want and Give A Lasting Gift will send the money to the organizations on the individual’s behalf and a tax receipt will be mailed to the buyer. “We think we got a good mix and there will be something that everyone will want to give as a gift and support. Some of it will be in general donations but others have packages, like the amount to keep a

Arcadia Ranch offers seniors a new way of life Morning Star Staff

The Arcadia Ranch Community proposes a new way of retiring where people live and work together drawing on their own talents, interests and experiences. The concept is based on the Fellowship Community which has been in operation in New York state for 35 years with residents working to provide for their own needs and to make products to sell to help sustain the community. Organizer Dean Goddard is holding public meetings around the province to explain the way Arcadia Ranch, run as a not-for-profit society to be based in Barriere, B.C., would

work and to provide information and answer questions. “This is a sustainable, healthy way to live which would be affordable and not take any government funding. We are modeling this on something that has been successful so that we will be successful too,” said Goddard, who has a background in corporate and environmental management and nutrition. Building is scheduled to start the spring of 2011 with help from Thompson Rivers University students in business, trades and technology. Barb Stankiewicz is looking forward to living at the

Arcadia Ranch Community when it is ready. “It’s a community where a senior can take part in any work or activity. It’s for a person who wants an active lifestyle that allows for human growth right up to the end. When you keep alive doing things, life is a lot more fun,” she said. The Arcadia Ranch Community public information meeting takes place Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Schubert Centre. For more information, call Goddard at 250-672-1913 or 250-320-7542 or e-mail arcadiaranch@gmail.com or see www.arcadiaranchcommunity.com or www.fellowshipcommunity.org.

husband’s property. Many women continue to do so because they respect tradition, prefer the husband’s name, don’t want to confuse the children, like to give the impression that they are subservient to their husbands, whatever. Women who keep their maiden names, hyphenated or not, often do so because they already have established professional careers, the husband’s surname is difficult to pronounce or spell, they wish to retain an independent identity, and so on. A recent trend is to combine both surnames and create a new one, an idea that has merit, although it undoubtedly gives genealogists fits. When men are expected to take their wife’s sur-

ear Annie: I have been with “Ted” for a year. He is a wonderful man, and I love every moment we spend together. But he talks to his ex-wife on a regular basis. She left him after a 13-year relationship, and they had no children together. Yet, he still tells her he loves her and talks to her exactly the same way he talks to me. Ted says I have nothing to worry about, but it frustrates me. He tells me he doesn’t want to lose her friendship and will always love her because she’s been in his life “for so long.” But what about me? — Confused Girlfriend Dear Confused: The question is not the friendship. It’s whether or not he’d go back to his ex if she asked. Ted should examine his own feelings and decide whether he is fully committed to you or not. You don’t need a man who is pining for a lost love. If he insists you are the only woman in his life, ask him to please cut back on the frequency of his calls to the ex for the sake of your relationship. Dear Annie: A woman down the hall from my apartment has two dogs. When she takes them out, one of them actually screams as it passes by my door. This happens at 3 a.m. I contacted the building manager, and he assured me that he talked to her about using a different exit door, but she is still using the same one. It seems she waits until that poor little animal screams its discomfort. Is there anything I can do? I’m tempted to contact the Humane Society. — Tired of the Screaming Dog Dear Tired: You can call the Humane Society, but what sounds like screaming isn’t necessarily the same for dogs as it is for humans. And the woman is probably not “waiting” until the dog gets upset. At 3 in the morning, it takes a few minutes for her to wake up.

BIBLE BASICS

Life

The Urim and the Thummim: Exod. 28:30: “Thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim. And they shall be on Aaron’s heart.” Urim: lights, the oracular brilliance of the Àgures in the High Priest’s breastplate. Thummim: perfections, as an emblem of complete truth. These represent Jesus Christ personal and in multiplicity, physically, mentally and morally: the fullness of Divine glory.

Poster contest designed to give kids a voice Morning Star Staff

A unique poster contest has been launched in an effort to help children understand that child sexual abuse and exploitation is never their fault, and that they do have a voice and a right to be safe. The Canadian Centre for Child Protection has created the ‘By Kids, For Kids’ contest, which is open to all Grade six classes across Canada. The contest is a part of the Canadian Centre’s Smart, Strong and Safe initiative, which was developed in response to Cybertip. ca’s November 2009 research findings on child sexual abuse images on the Internet. This study found that 82 per cent of child sexual abuse images assessed by Cybertip. ca were of children 12 years of age and under. “This research reinforced the immediate need for child sexual

abuse and exploitation education in Canada,” said Lianna McDonald, executive director of the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. “If we are to be successful in helping to prevent child victimization, we need to teach our kids to recognize

the signs and ensure they understand that it’s not their fault and that it’s OK to tell.” Teachers who are interested in getting their class involved in the contest can find more information and registration details at the Smart, Strong and

Safe website (smartstrongsafe.ca). All registered teachers will receive a free class set of the activity booklet for their students and a lesson plan with instructions on how to engage their class in the contest. The submission

deadline for the ‘By Kids, For Kids’ poster contest is March 18, 2011, and the winning entries will be unveiled at a press conference in the spring. The first-place class will also see their poster reproduced and distributed to nearly 10,000

Canadian schools next fall, helping to spread the message to their peers that child sexual abuse is not OK, it’s never their fault and that it’s OK to tell. The contest works in partnership with the Kids in the Know program’s Be Smart,

Strong, and Safe activity booklet and lesson plans. The contest is meant to enhance the lessons by giving students the chance to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the issue in a creative, visual way.

Jackie is leaving the mall on Nov. 20th and starting at The Great Escape Nov. 23rd.

Horoscope BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL Agreements that you make with contacts who have clout will work out wonderfully for you in the near future. Chances are, you will line yourself up with a number of powerful allies who will demonstrate their worth.

PUZZLE NO. 203

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) One of the qualities of your sign is that there is nothing wishy-washy about you. When events call for a strong character, you’ll be the first one to stand up and be noticed.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You are likely to team up again with someone with whom you’ve been successful in the past. You’ll most likely use similar means to achieve another collective goal.

HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 100303

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) That protective nature of yours won’t hesitate to go to bat for someone who is near and dear to you, when you see s/he is in trouble and could use your help. Good for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It might not be obvious to you, but your strength of character and determination come into play the moment you believe you or someone you love is in trouble. This may happen today. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) That wonderful optimism of yours, with its positive expectations, is what contributes to your successes. When it is coupled with practicality, as it is likely to be today, its power is awesome. ARIES (March 21-April 19) It is best not to see yourself as the underdog when negotiating an important deal, because it could cause you to get in a begging mode instead of acting from a strong position. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Friends who need a lot of pats on the back could be difficult for many to handle, but not you. You have the ability to make them feel special without being phony in any way whatsoever. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Everyone gets a day when people treat them in the same manner they have treated others, and today could be yours. I hope your remuneration is made up of lots of good happenings.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Lots of fun happenings shared with good co-workers, friends and associates are likely to make up most of your day. It could be just the lift you’ve needed and have been looking for. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Any barriers or obstacles shouldn’t bar you one bit from doing what you want. You’re the type of person who sees roadblocks but never lets them affect you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although you won’t deliberately seek out competitive situations in either your business or social affairs, they could serve to encourage you to achieve what you want. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Provided you don’t leave anything up to chance, there are strong indications that you will collect what is owed you, even if that means calling in a marker on something that is long overdue.

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.

Dr. Dalen Quinton would like to thank his loyal clients for their patronage and welcome all new patients!

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder Bill Lyon said, “If at first you don’t succeed, find out if the loser gets anything.” At the bridge table, it is important to take care of losers, especially when you are declarer. But there is one unusual situation where a defender must put a loser to work. In this deal, how should the defense go to defeat four spades after West leads the heart ace? North’s three-heart cuebid showed at least threecard spade support and game-invitational or better values. This is an excellent idea because then a jumpraise to three spades can be pre-emptive, showing four trumps and a weak hand, trying to make life harder for the opponents.

West can see three defensive tricks: two hearts and one club. Since declarer surely has the spade ace and diamond ace-king for his opening bid and raise to game, the defense’s only chance for a fourth trick lies in the trump suit. However, if West leads another heart now and partner ruffs it, declarer will make a loseron-loser play, pitching his solitary club. As we saw yesterday, before going for an uppercut, first take all of your side-suit tricks. So, West must cash the club ace at trick three. Then, when wanting partner to ruff for an uppercut, lead a loser, not a winner. West should continue with a low heart,

not the queen. If he leads a winner, he is telling partner not to ruff. Here, luckily, East, who might be thinking that declarer has the heart queen, cannot ruff low. But even if he did have 10doubleton, he should still ruff high because the 10 would serve no purpose later on.
