Lumby locks up date for prison vote RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The contentious issue of a prison will be placed in the hands of Lumby residents. Council unanimously voted Monday to hold a referendum April 30 to determine public support for a proposed correctional facility. “It’s been pointed out by both sides that we should go to referendum. We’ve done the right thing,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. That is also the view of Coun. Tracy Williamson. “Everyone who wants to be heard will have a chance. People for it and against it are asking for this,”

she said. Council originally considered holding a telephone poll instead of a referendum because the provincial g ove r n m e n t wants to know by April if Williamson communities are interested in hosting a prison. However, Ministry of Solicitor General officials have indicated that a public input process is more critical than meeting the deadline.

“A lot of people also didn’t have confidence in a phone poll,” said Coun. Janet Green. With April 30 set as the date, village council and staff will start working out the details for the referendum, which is expected to cost about $5,000. It’s also expected that the adjacent electoral area will hold a referendum on a correctional facility. “They are interested in having a say on what happens on a facility,” said director Rick Fairbairn of residents in Area D. Fairbairn points out that any results in Area D would be presented to the village for consideration,

but they are not binding on what the village does. Fairbairn will now work out referendum details with the North Okanagan Regional District. Heading to the polls is something Area E director Eugene Foisy will also consider. “If people want it, we would go along. But I haven’t had a lot of requests from residents of Cherryville,” he said. The issue of a prison has created divisions among Lumby residents, but Coun. Ben Winters believes a referendum will ease the conflict, not escalate the situation. “People will be able to get out

and vote, and everyone will know where they are at with the issue,” he said. The group Lumby Concerned Citizens will start preparing for an anti-prison campaign. “We need to keep working and talking about why we do not need a prison,” said spokesperson Paul Fisher. Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster, who lives in Lumby, supports a referendum. “It’s essential that people get a chance to go behind a screen and vote. People on both sides are feeling intimidated and this allows everyone to say their piece,” he said.

Large rally targets jail RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A bitterly cold wind wasn’t enough to keep a large and vocal crowd from converging on Lumby’s village office Monday. Between 250 and 300 people gathered to express their opposition to Lumby possibly becoming the site of a new provincial correctional centre. “We understand the need for a tax base but a prison is just a short-term option,” said resident Mark Piorecky. “We should be looking at other (economic) options. Do we want to reinvent ourselves as a prison town?” Harald Hatterscheidt is concerned a facility will increase crime and demands on social services. “How will a prison be a benefit for people who came here because it’s a small community?” he said. Paul Fisher, with Lumby Concerned Citizens, was pleased with the turnout. “It far exceeds our estimations,” he said of the rally, which began before a council meeting. “If they (council) have any political savvy, they will listen to this.” During a presentation to council, Fisher blasted the politicians. “We expect you to represent all of your constituents. And we expect you to have taken a more impartial stance on this proposal,” he said. “We are disappointed in the way council has handled this critical issue because we now have a community divided and becoming more divided.” Fisher is concerned that a prison could place Lumby residents at risk. “Can we expect that this proposed remand centre would house those accused of murder,

Randy Rauck speaks to a crowd of between 250 and 300 people opposing a proposed prison in front of Lumby’s village office Monday. sexual assault, gang activity, extortion, theft and the list goes on,” he said. “The village will have no say over the prison population nor will it have control over the designation of the prison. Is it possible the prison could increase in size physically?” The provincial government is proposing a 360-cell jail but Fisher says prisons typically run 180 per cent over capacity. “At this rate, this will be like building a village within a village.”

Fisher also questioned how a prison would impact water and sewer infrastructure and property values. “Are you willing to gamble with the future value of taxpayers’ property?” he asked council. While there was a large crowd opposing a prison Monday, council was informed by staff that 144 letters in favour of a jail have been received. “A few years ago, we almost lost our high

school to closure and thousands of people attended the public meeting. The most vocal said they would do anything to save the school,” said Paula Harned, a Lumby resident, in a letter to council. “Now, five years later, the only change there has been is a further reduction of jobs and students. Now, many of the people who were so vocal then are just as vocal now saying no to a correctional facility. They speak out of fear, lack of knowledge and mistrust.”

News Collision closes road RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

JENNIFER SMITH/MORNING STAR

RCMP officers investigate a crash on Silver Star Road between a Chevy Cobalt and Ford F350 Monday just before 11 a.m. up past Keddleston Road. The Jaws of Life were used to free the female driver of the car, who was flown to hospital with serious injuries, and Silver Star Road was closed for several hours while officers investigated the scene.

A Vernon resident is in hospital with extensive injuries after a two-vehicle accident. A 19-year-old woman was first taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital and then transported to Kelowna General Hospital after the collision between her Chevrolet Cobalt and a pickup truck on Silver Star Road, near Keddleston Road, Monday at about 10:40 a.m. “The woman was going up the hill and there’s some indication that she may have crossed into his lane but the investigation is still ongoing,� said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. The Jaws of Life were required to remove the woman from her vehicle. “It was not an easy time getting her out,� said Molendyk. “There are some indications she may have broken bones.� The condition of the woman was not known at press time. It’s believed the driver of the pickup truck did not sustain any apparent injuries. As a result of the accident and the emergency response, Silver Star Road was closed for three hours. It reopened to one lane and ultimately both lanes were opened. Molendyk says the accident created some challenges for motorists. “There is always traffic on the road but midday is lighter than first thing in the morning or later in the day,� he said.

Accuser takes stand in sexual assault case against teacher ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

In the accuser’s words, she was his teacher, his vice-principal and his basketball coach when he was a Grade 7 student at a Vernon elementary school. He said she would take him and his friends to movies; would take kids to get fast food. He also said she took four of the basketball team, including her accuser, to a three-on-three tournament in Vancouver, and, on another occasion, took him and a family member to the Coast. After the basketball season, he said, a sexual relationship began with her, one that would last more than a year. Those are the words of a Vernon boy who accused his former teacher, vice-principal and basketball coach

of sexual assault as he took the witness stand during the first day of her trial Monday at the Vernon Court House. Crown counsel Neil Flanagan of Kamloops alleges that Deborah Louise Ashton, 45, had a sexual relationship with the student when he was in Grade 7 and Grade 8 from September 2002 to Jan. 31, 2004 – the victim’s 14th birthday Flanagan said the boy was never forced to do anything sexual, but the law at the time said a person under 14 was incapable of entering into a consensual relationship with an adult. The accuser described various sexual activities that he claims happened with Ashton at many different locations. “We were at my house, her house, in the school basement, a

room where they have supplies at the school, in her vehicle,� said the accuser, now in his 20s, who can’t be identified because of a publication ban. “We had sex on a trip to Vancouver.� The accuser described, on two occasions, how Ashton said that what they were doing was wrong. One was at a movie theatre, where the accuser placed his hand on her shoulder and she told him not to do that. “I was confused as to why she would say that,� he said, adding he put his hand on her shoulder again later during the movie. This time, he said, Ashton took his hand and held it under her jacket. When the pair were alone sitting on the grass at the school one evening, the accuser said Ashton started crying.

“She said she had feelings for me and she knew that it was wrong,� said the boy. “She cried the whole time.� Asked by Flanagan if he knew what the woman meant when she said she was falling for him, the boy answered, “She was falling in love with me.� The accuser was still on the witness stand at The Morning Star’s press time on Tuesday, and had yet to be cross-examined by Ashton’s lawyer, G. Jack Harris of Abbotsford. The situation came to light in June of 2008 when the Vernon School District received an anonymous letter accusing a teacher and vice-principal of having a sexual relationship with a student. The trial began Monday with the selection of the eight-woman,

four-man jury. Ashton pleaded not guilty at the start of trial to counts of sexual assault, sexual interference of a person under 14 and invitation to sexual touching under 14. Her trial is expected to last between five and eight days in Vernon Supreme Court.

Rotary makes dreams come true Morning Star Staff

One of Vernon’s social events of the year has paid off for nonprofit activities in the community. The Kalamalka Rotary Club has approved funding of $130,000 for 27 projects. The money was raised during the annual Dream Auction in November. “We’re very pleased to have been able to support so many worthwhile projects,” said Peter O’Callaghan, club president. Kal Rotary received requests this year from 48 clubs, festivals and organizations totalling $344,000. “It’s always a challenge to decide which applications to fund,” said Jerry Tellier, donations committee chairperson. The committee looks at donations by category, for instance, youth, sports, health and wellness, education and seniors. The club also maintains a donations history so that the committee can determine whether applicants have received past funding and, if so, to what level. “Kal Rotary also funds its ongoing commitments, including Vernon School District scholarships, adventures in citizenship and the international student exchange pro-

gram which accepts an inbound international student each year while, at the same time, sending a Vernon area student to study abroad for the year,” said Tellier.

In addition, Dream Auction funds allowed Kal Rotary to complete its pledge to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Tower of Care campaign with a

she does not have any issues with the FSA test, it’s the way in which the Fraser Institute uses the results. “As a public education system, we should be demonstrating how our students are learning,” she said. “We object to the misuse of that data to rank schools. We don’t rank our schools when we get that data, it’s a snapshot of how our district is doing.” The report indicates that Hillview elementary, ranked 720 out of 875 schools, has shown an improvement over last year, from 3.3 to 4.3, while BX has gone down from 5.9 to 4.8. Topranked school in the district is Coldstream, which dipped to 7.3 from last year’s ranking of 7.7. The lowest-ranked school for the district is Alexis Park at 3.2, an improvement over last year’s rating of 2.7. In the North Okanagan-Shuswap District, Highland Park increased from 5.6 to 5.7, while Armstrong elementary went down from 5.6 to 5.2. M.V. Beattie in Enderby went

up to 4.9 from last year’s 3.7. But Rundell said it’s unfair to rank a school based solely on the results of the FSA test, and that the data does little to determine how well students are doing. “It is disheartening, we see how hard they work, and this does not add value to the education system,” she said. Rundell said the report doesn’t take into account a number of variables, such as a school with a more transient population. “At some schools, 24 students were tested, and if four don’t do very well, how does that skew the results?” To educators in this district, Rundell said it’s more important to look at where students are struggling, and what can be done to improve their success in school. “We go deeper than the ranking, with programs such as One to One, schools are doing after-school reading programs, so we do a very good job in our school system.” The entire Fraser

from Dean Chapple at H&R Block For the past 3 years the new provision for qualifying pension income being eligible for division up to 50% between spouses (common law included) resulted in huge savings for our clients. This will continue for the 2010 tax year, giving us the ability to maximize the use of the pension deduction, and also look at the possibility of lowering the tax bracket of the person receiving the pension income. Most of the non-refundable credits for 2010 have increased. The employment tax credit of $1051 still continues to play a role in lowering taxes as does the children’s fitness credit of $500 per child for children enrolled in all types of fitness programs including swimming, soccer, dance, hockey etc. The $2101 non refundable credit for all dependant children under 18 plus the working income tax benefit credit for low-income families will continue to result in our seeing larger refunds this year as taxpayers will pay less tax.

ften a sense of community outweighs actual political borders. Whether you live right in the village or in Whitevale, Trinity Valley or at Mabel Lake, it’s all covered by one overall name — Lumby. That’s why many of the people who are active on both sides of the prison issue come from the adjacent rural electoral area. They use the shops and schools in Lumby, they may own businesses there and they certainly share in the cost for recreational amenities. They contend that a prison will impact Richard Rolke them — for the good or the bad — and they can’t understand why they don’t have a say just because they don’t reside in the village itself. It’s because of that sense of ownership that Area D director Rick Fairbairn has little choice but to hold a referendum in parallel with a vote in the village. His constituents are demanding a voice. However, what will a referendum in Area D achieve? Yes, the residents will have provided their input but the results will not be binding on anyone. Fairbairn is not a member of village council, and he won’t determine the fate of a prison because the property in question is not his jurisdiction. The results can be presented to Lumby council for information purposes but they won’t be part of the official count. Kevin Acton, Lumby mayor, has already made it abundantly clear that any ballots from outside of the village will not influence what

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

his council ultimately does with a correctional facility. “We will take it into consideration but a final decision is based on the village taxpayers,” he said. “They are the ones who will be impacted by it (prison) directly tax-wise.” And as much as there is a common bond, the reality is that council is only elected to represent the interests of residents living within the village. Acton’s comments about taxes may appear harsh but once again, it’s reality. If water, sewer or road infrastructure need upgrading to cope with the pressures brought on by a 360-cell correctional facility, it will only be property owners in the village pumping dollars into those projects. Yes residents in rural Lumby could be affected by a prison eroding their lifestyle and increasing crime. But it could also bolster a struggling economy and help draw new families into town. The same argument could be made for nearby Cherryville or the Lavington part of Coldstream, which is also close at hand. I understand the need for Area D residents to want to participate in the debate. Many families have lived there for decades and they identify themselves as being from Lumby. There are deep social and economic investments in the community. But unless the provincial government redraws the political boundaries before the April 30 referendum, a vote in Area D will be nothing more than a costly survey. There will be absolutely no teeth behind the ballots gathered, and the expectations of people wanting to play a meaningful role in their community will be dashed.

Police in B.C. are sending a clear signal to drivers insisting on using hand-held electronic devices while at the wheel. Since the ban on using handheld cellphones, text messaging, GPS units, music players and portable gaming devices while driving came into effect in January of last year, police in this province have handed out 32,000 tickets to drivers violating the new law, bringing in a total of $5.2 million in fines. The $167 fine if caught using these devices is clearly not a deterrent as people are still racing to their destinations with a cellphone or other electronic device in hand. Unlike tuning the car stereo or taking a sip of coffee, handheld devices require drivers to take their eyes off the road and lapse into autopilot, which is at the root of another statistic — 32 per cent of fatal accidents in B.C. are caused by distracted driving. Society’s acceptance of cellphones and text messaging leaves people with the impression it’s rude to ignore calls. It’s not. To change the way people behave, police in B.C. will crack down on hand-held device use while driving, with RCMP members calling for stiffer penalties and fines. Throughout the month, police will be nabbing commuters at road checks and using covert operations to catch drivers disobeying the law. Addicted to your Blackberry? The RCMP has some advice — stick the phone in the trunk. Out of mind and, more importantly, out of reach. Autopilot is not the state drivers should be in when navigating B.C.’s roads and highways. — Black Press

City hall overdue for a review

I

t is easy to criticize, but sometimes it is necessary. Council feels it has to be all things, to all people, not so, when government cuts funding, it is not always necessary to pick up the slack. The city is the largest employer, with the biggest payroll, a fleet of vehicles to boggle a person's mind, and probably have the most waste. Any company, that would run their business as the city does, would have likely declared bankruptcy years ago. We have to do more with less. It's time that all contracts and job description are reviewed. Starting from administration, to the man on the shovel. There are whole departments we can do without. There are some I'm not sure what their purpose really is. Staff can safely be reduced by 10 per cent, SAFE FOODS In her letter published Jan. 7, Heidi Osterman asked that Colin Mayes and Liberal politicians be told that citizens do care about real food and natural farming, specifically Bill C-474. The intent of this legislation is to require that an analysis of potential harm to export markets be conducted before the sale of any new genetically engineered seed is permitted. Hearings on Bill C-474 were held by the Agriculture Committee and involved members from all parties. The committee heard from a number of witnesses and was supposed to hear from several others. Liberal agriculture critic, MP Wayne Easter, stated in the House of Commons “Parliament and debate is all about that, having discussions and bringing witnesses forward. "Sadly, the government members on the committee jeopardized that debate by filibustering and not allowing the full discussion on the bill that the committee should have had. "Bill C-474 warranted a full review by the agri-

and middle management by 20 per cent. If the departments are unwilling to do this, perhaps it's time an efficiency team was hired to do the job for them. Staff wants a six per cent increase, to fulfill present commitments, if this is a ploy, and it only goes up one to two per cent, people will say ooh we are so lucky, it could have been six per cent. I don't appreciate that. However if they really believe that, they are out of touch with reality, and have absolutely no concept of the present state of the economy. Times are tough, and the future doesn't look that good. There seems to be a lot of infighting lately, especially with parks and rec. Dissension is a waste of time, and time is money. Rose Pollock

culture committee, but as a result of that review, it has failed the essential test of earning a greater degree of support.” Bill C-474 did not receive support from Liberal members as there was not enough definition around what the bill intended to accomplish, in terms of defining economic harm. Also the bill was not considered adequate to challenge the integrity of Canada's current science-based system approval process for genetically-engineered or modified materials. Finally Bill C-474 was not thought to provide a clear and objective process by which to conduct the analysis called for in the legislation. If the hearings had been allowed to run their full course the outcome may have been different. Legislation that helps Canadian farmers to export their products to European customers is critical. Given the potential risk in the alfalfa and wheat industries by the introduction of GMO, genetically engineered seeds, the issue

of GMOs and genetic engineering, while controversial, must be dealt with. Citizens want the best and safest foods to put on their kitchen tables. Governments have responsibility for developing and administering the rules that ensure those who grow and sell food have a safe and healthy product. Helping farmers export products from seeds that are natural and not subjected to genetic manipulation is important to all Canadians. Janna Francis JOIN THE CAUSE This letter is in response to the lady that wrote a letter to the editor about BC Recall, she stated it's "rich" people that are raising hell. And that we should contribute to the food bank instead. This lady is so far out of touch with reality, if she only knew that most of our supporters are fixed-income pensioners. They are all near having to go to the food bank themselves because of our taxes, but are too proud! Perhaps she should be tak-

ing a pensioner for lunch or drop off a food hamper. They have the guts to stand up to our government fighting for democracy on her behalf and benefit while she bends over hiding her head in the sand waiting for the government to give her another kick in the behind. What would it take to get her fed up with taxation? When she is ready to fight back there will be no one beside her to fight, she will be on her own, again poor me she says. The MLAs sure as heck aren't going to help you; you will be on your own. Perhaps join us, we welcome you, we need you, help us fight this fight. May I ask what has Eric Foster ever done for you? You criticize the pensioners; they are fighting your fight. They should be your heroes. Tip your hat to them when you meet them on the street. Come and join their cause. Rosanne Sutherland HOSPITAL CARE Recently my husband fell on the ice on a downtown

sidewalk, landing heavily on his hip and it fractured. Some kind folk on the scene tried to pick him up and help him. It is vital that when a person falls heavily and can't get up themselves that you call an ambulance or let someone with first aid help. No damage was done luckily enough. The ambulance service was great and the emergency nurses and doctors at Vernon Jubilee Hospital were quick and very attentive. We felt well taken care of both pre and post surgery. The care was exemplary throughout. These days you hear so much negative talk about our health care but our experience was as positive as it could be under the circumstances. We arrived home two days after surgery to receive calls from community nurses and physiotherapists who came around to the house and gave great care as well. So thank you to all who helped us recently. Stephen and Noralee Olsson

“Despite the commercial benefits of sporting events such as the Masters World Cup to the region and the volunteer and general community support, a pivotal issue is whether the regional district has the authority to provide the requested service,” said Ron Baker, protective services manager.

Macnabb admits he was surprised to learn that the Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre is not included within the boundaries of the Silver Star Fire Department. He believes that situation may have to change long-term. “We will have to look at that but we will have to look at manpower and if we have the resources for it,” he said.

On Monday at about 2:12 p.m., a resident was in his home in the 1300 block of 43rd Avenue when he heard a noise and saw a man attempting to break into his residence. “The police were called and with the aid of one of our police service dog teams, the suspect was tracked to a residence on Cascade Drive,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. A 45-year-old suspect has been arrested in conjunction with the incident.

Many lend a hand to make Tenor sing KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

No one could make as dramatic an entrance or exit as Norma Desmond, played by the late Gloria Swanson, from the famed film Sunset Blvd. And now local fans are about to be introduced to her slightly more crazy equivalent, a daffy entourage of characters in the production of Lend me a Tenor. Written by Ken Ludwig, the Tony Award-winning comedic farce made its Broadway debut in 1989, and was revived on the Great White Way last year with actor Stanley Tucci in the director’s chair. And now Vernon’s Powerhouse Theatre is lending the production its talents. Matt Brown, who has directed and acted in numerous local productions, most recently Munschapalooza for Bumbershoot Children’s Theatre, is making his directorial debut at Powerhouse. In a case of life imitating art, Brown jokes that the show should have been renamed “Lend me a Director,” as the original director scheduled to helm the show had to pull out due to unfortunate circumstances. After receiving a call from Powerhouse president Sarah “Scottie” McLean that the board was considering him as director, Brown said he was honoured, but wanted to read the script more thoroughly. “I had never directed a farce before, but Scottie assured me, and said ‘I have confidence in you,’ and said she was also available to help. They made me feel welcome,” he said. And although he was part of the artistic committee that chose the play as part of this year’s Powerhouse season, Brown said he had only time to scan the script initially, but this time he really took a look at it. “To my memory, it was the first play that I’ve read where I laughed out loud,” he said. With that first challenge tackled, Brown next set out to find his cast. And he was a little worried at first, explaining he needed male actors,

Many who fit the bill had already committed their time for Powerhouse’s December production of Grease. “(However), when I held the auditions, I had enough people to cast the play three times over,” said Brown. Around the same time the play was cast, Powerhouse’s design team set off to make a door ––yes, one set piece–– to accommodate rehearsals. “This is a very physical show with lots of entrances and exits,” said Brown, explaining the play’s pace maintains a constant high speed throughout. “I had to bump rehearsals up because it’s so physical and I didn’t want to be at a loss.” And the pace is set right after the curtain opens. Set in a Cleveland, Ohio hotel suite in 1934, Lend me a Tenor features four male and four female

characters. It follows world famous Italian operatic tenor Tito “Il Stupendo” Merelli (played by Geoff Ingram), who shows up late, and not in optimal condition, for his leading role in a highly anticipated opera. Enter protagonist Max (Joel Montgrand), the bumbling slave servant to tightly-wound theatre manager, Saunders (Rick Smith), who insists that the show must go on despite the condition of their star performer. “I tried to pull the physical comedy out of (Montgrand) the most out of all the characters, while still having a convincing story,” said Brown. “From the time Tito shows up, a series of mix ups ensue... The theme of ‘what are we going to do to get this man motivated for the show’ is the set up, and it happens from early in the production. The first line of the show tells you exactly where it’s

going to go from there.” Love, or lack thereof, plays a big part in the production with the female characters, including Tito’s Italian firecracker wife, Maria (Christina Cuglietta-Braun). “All these women are crazy about Tito, but she doesn’t swoon, she controls him,” said Brown. Max’s love interest, and female protagonist Maggie (Ashley Plomp), doesn’t exactly share the same sentiment towards him. “She has as much character development as Max,” said Brown. “She is the undiscovered, the inexperienced female of the show –– the baby.” The supportive voice comes from close family friend, Julia (Jean Given), who is more like an aunt to Maggie. “She makes these comedic cameos that are used to accentuate how young Maggie is,” said Brown. Then there’s Diana (Emily Heayn), who is part of the opera.

“She is out for herself, and the opposite of Maggie in experience,” said Brown, adding “With all these characters you get the essence of all the women.” And although the action revolves around the funny things that happen on the way to the opera, it’s another memorable character that steals the show, so to speak. “The bell hop (Chris Froese) has been gifted with treats written in the script. He’s the cherry on the whipping cream,” said Brown, who also sends a shout out to his crew: “Viva argyle club!” while explaining, “I am wearing argyle to represent all the folks that don’t get seen, but make the show happen.” Lend me a Tenor runs at Powerhouse Theatre Feb. 16 to 19 and Feb. 22 to 26 at 8 p.m., with a matinee Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the Ticket Seller.

Locally made film screens again Morning Star Staff

Locals who didn’t catch the screening premiere of TORA, the short film shot in Lake Country and Vernon, now have the opportunity when the film shows at the Creekside Theatre in Lake Country Sunday. “The film was shot in Lake Country and Vernon and so the Creekside is the perfect venue to showcase the film to the communities who helped make it,” said director/producer Wendy Ord, who with partner Glen Samuel, had to turn away more than 150 people in Kelowna when the film was first shown in January. “(We) have been inundated with requests for another local screening,” she said. Ord and Samuel of Mountain Lake Films in Lake Country have spent the last year and a half making their 30-minute “epic” film. When David Suzuki signed on to play the motorcycle riding oddball neighbour in their script, the filmmakers set to work right away to begin filming the winter scenes.

LOST

and the U.S. TORA screens Sunday at the Creekside Theatre, 10241 Bottom Wood Lake Rd. (attached to George Elliot Secondary School in Lake Country.) Doors open at 2 p.m. with a behind-the-scenes making of slide show. The film screens from 2:30 to 3 p.m. Reservations are not required and admission is $5 (cash only.)

Jenna (Kate Bateman) dreams that it is 1942 and Japanese-Canadians (played by local extras) are being hauled away from their homes to internment camps in the B.C. Interior in the short film TORA. “It was almost a year to the day that filming began on snowbound Beaver Lake,” said Ord. Summer scenes were filmed at Kopje Park in Carr’s Landing and a street in Vernon stood in for war-time Vancouver. More than 100 local cast, crew and businesses were directly involved with the production, from extras to catering to car rentals. One of the stars in the film is eight-year-old actress Krista Shepard, who will be on hand to help introduce the film

on Sunday. TORA follows Jenna, a jaded city woman who inherits an idyllic lakeside property. Falling down buildings in the bush and unsettling visions of a little ghost girl make her realize all is not as it appears. Through her new and delightfully odd neighbour (Suzuki), Jenna learns the property was a Japanese internment camp during the Second World War, and the little girl she’s been seeing suffered a mysterious fate while interned there.

Lightfoot to visit Interior KAMLOOPS — It will be five days past his 73rd birthday when folk-rock legend Gordon Lightfoot visits the Interior Savings Centre in Kamloops for an evening of hits Nov. 22. Lightfoot has long been respected as Canada’s greatest songwriter. Bob Dylan has always been a fan and observed that when he hears a Lightfoot song, he wishes “it would last forever.” Fellow Canadian Robbie Robertson from The Band stated that Lightfoot is “his favourite Canadian songwriter

and is absolutely a national treasure.” Lightfoot has received numerous awards over his career, including 17 Juno Awards, inductions in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, the companion of the Order of Canada, as well as five Grammy nominations. Tickets to see Lightfoot are $59.50 and $69.50 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster outlets, www. ticketmaster.ca or call (250) 374-9200.

Music of the Louisiana Hayride Sat., Feb. 26 @ 7:30 pm

Enter to open for Buddy Guy KELOWNA — Guitars are tuning up around the Okanagan with the announcement of a competition where the winner will open for blues legend Buddy Guy. Packing the House Productions is looking for just the right band to open for the Chicago bluesman when he plays the Kelowna Community Theatre April 18. “The winner will perform an opening set prior to Guy coming on stage, while the runner up will have the opportunity to play in the lobby of the theatre prior to the main stage concert,” reads a press release from Packing the House. Guy, who last appeared in the Okanagan at Vernon’s Rarearth Music Festival in 2009, has been called

the bridge between the blues and rock and roll. He is one of the historic links between Chicago electric blues pioneers Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf and popular musicians such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page as well as late revivalist Stevie Ray Vaughan. It was the late Vaughan who stated that, “Without Buddy Guy, there would be no Stevie Ray Vaughan,” while Clapton has said, “Buddy Guy was to me what Elvis was to others.” A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and past winner of five

Grammy Awards, Guy’s latest recording, Living Proof, is nominated for a 2011 Grammy for best contemporary blues album of the year. Bands interested in opening for Guy are asked to submit their name, a short bio, and a link to a YouTube video topackingthehouse@ hotmail.com. The deadline for submissions is March 1, and the winner will be announced March 15. For more information, visit www.packingthehouseproductions.com. Tickets to see Guy are available at www. selectyourtickets.com.

n Jan. 6, the Right Honourable Stephen Harper announced a new Volunteer Awards Program to recognize Canadians who devote their time, energy and resources to make a difference in the lives of others. A total of 17 Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards will be awarded across the country. Three awards will be available in each of the following five Canadian regions: Atlantic Canada, QuĂŠbec, Ontario, the Colin Mayes Prairies, British Columbia and Northern Canada. These will be presented in the following categories: Community Leader Award – Intended for individuals or groups, nominees must act as a catalyst to develop solutions to local problems. Business Leader Award – Intended for private sector recipients, nominees must demonstrate corporate social responsibility by using financial and/ or human resources, and/or developing partnerships with not-for-profit organizations or social enterprises to address social issues. Social Innovator Award – Intended for the not-for-profit sector, nominees must demonstrate innovation by developing new approaches or new ideas to address social challenges. There will also be two national awards, one to recognize lifelong achievement and one for young adult leadership. Regional award recipients will receive a $5,000 grant for the not-for-profit organization of their choice, while national award recipients will receive $10,000 for their organization of choice. The awards will be managed and funded by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada. The first call for nominations for the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards will open on April 10, 2011 during National Volunteer Week. Recipients will be recognized at an awards ceremony in December 2011. For more information about who can be nominated please visit: www.pm.gc. ca/eng/feature.asp. The creation of the ‘New Awards Program’ addresses a commitment made by our Harper Government in the 2010 Speech from the Throne.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Regardless of the circumstances, hang onto your hopes and expectations, even those that look rather grim. Conditions will eventually pass and things should work out rather well for you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) When challenged or faced with a difficult objective is when you’ll function at your best. You won’t allow any goal or task intimidate you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Anything you can keep in proper reference or view philosophically will keep you from blowing bad situations out of perspective. You’ll not let your thinking get unruffled. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Someone with whom you’ve been having a hard time keeping things together will approach you with a new course of action you both can take. It’ll work good for both of you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) It will be important to not only consider the practical aspects of an arrangement you have with another but the emotions that might be at play as well when making a big change in the relationship. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Although you might have been rather fortunate and have benefited in some manner from a situation another has, you will start to make a contribution in the procedure as well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Favorable changes could come into play involving a romantic situation that could turn out to be rather fortunate and/or benefit

you in some manner. It’ll make each more caring and dedicated. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Something in which you’re involved will work out to your satisfaction when you focus on doing it for a person you love in hopes of making him/ her feel more secure and happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You’re not likely to be able to please everyone, but you should be able to keep most of the people you’re with happy. As a result, your approval rating will be elevated. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) The potential for personal accumulation looks rather good for you at this point in time. In fact, even something that looked like a loser might reap some impressive rewards. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your hard-as-nails presentation rarely goes unnoticed whenever you speak out on anything about which you feel strongly. It helps that you say all the right things.

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 Mark Twain said, “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.” The difference between the right play and the almost right play may be the difference between a plus score and a minus score. This deal is an example. How would you plan the play in three no-trump after West leads the spade three? The auction was quantitative and straightforward. You have seven top tricks: two spades, two diamonds and three clubs. And there is a natural assumption that the clubs will provide the extra two winners that you need. The equally natural play

is to win the first trick and lead a club to dummy’s queen. You know that if East has all four clubs, you can pick up his jack with a finesse of your 10. Here, though, when East discards a diamond, you cannot recover. How could you know that West has all four clubs? What was West’s lead? Right -- the spade three. And since you can see the two in the dummy, West has led from a four-card suit. If he had been void in clubs, he would have had at least five cards in one of the red suits. And since length rules in notrump, surely he would have led from that suit, not a spade. So, you should play West for four clubs by cashing your ace first.

Then you can lead clubs twice through West to pick up the whole suit without loss and take two spades, two diamonds and five clubs. Always read the opening lead, then work out what else it implies -if anything!

Atlantic Lobster Whole 1 lb steamed Atlantic Lobster served with rice pilaf, baby vegetables and drawn butter - $45

It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet the people behind the scenes of an emergency. So says Helen Sinclair, deputy coordinator for the City of Vernon’s North Okanagan Emergency Management of a special open house being held in the spring. “The emergency management team and emergency support services are jointly presenting an emergency awareness day on Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Vernon Regional Airport,” said Sinclair. “We’re inviting everyone in the region to mark this date on their calendar. Come out and meet the agencies and the people behind the scenes. Some agencies are clearly visible during an emergency, others are not.” Sinclair explained that North Okanagan E m e r g e n c y Management focuses on all aspects of emergencies within the area. And to do that, emergency management has to liaise with a number of different groups and agencies.

Sports B Vernon rinks atop B.C. playdown EDITOR: Kevin MitchellssSPORTS VERNONMORNINGSTARCOM

Morning Star Staff

At 2-0, Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeff Richard is making a serious bid to defend his title at the Canadian Direct Insurance B.C. Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Curling Championship at the Vernon Curling Club. Hanging right with him are a pair of Vernon rinks skipped by Jim Cotter and Aron Herrick, both 2-0. Herrick, 39, had a slow start against Royal Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brent Pierce, but counted a four-ender in the seventh end to pull out an 8-5 win in the opening draw Monday at noon. The Vernon skip, backed by third Tobin Senum, second Marc Fillion and lead Jason Wizniak, had the hammer to start, but surrendered a single steal in the second end. A deuce in five had him leading 3-2 before the big seventh end put him in firm control. Herrick burgled a deuce in an extra end to brush back fellow Vernon Super Leaguer Darren Heath 8-6 in the Monday night draw. Heath (1-1) built up a three-point lead with deuces in the first, fourth and seventh ends, but Herrick stormed back with singles in eight, nine and 10 to force the extra end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask for a better start,â&#x20AC;? said Herrick, a BC Hydro systems operator and father of four. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two close games that could have gone either way, but we picked it up in the last half of both games and squeaked out a couple victories.â&#x20AC;? This is Herrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seventh appearance at provincials, but first as a skip in the 10-team spiel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more pressure. That last

shot is so important,â&#x20AC;? said Herrick, who previously curled in Kamloops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing third all those years, you think you know the game, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different experience when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the other end holding the broom.â&#x20AC;? Herrick faced Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jason Clarke (0-2) in the Tuesday noon draw and Kimberleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tom Buchy (0-2) that night. He goes up against Royal Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sean Geall (0-2) at noon today and Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Neil Dangerfield (1-1) tonight (7 p.m.). Cotter counted deuces in the first, fourth and seventh ends on the way to a 7-4 win over Clarke. He recorded a single in the 10th end to brush back Dangerfield 7-6. Cotter, supported by third Ken Maskiewich, second Kevin Folk and lead Rick Sawatsky, met Richard at noon on Tuesday and went up against Kamloopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brent Yamada (1-1) in the night draw. He goes up against Pierce in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noon draw before tangling with Heath tonight. Heath â&#x20AC;&#x201C; third Dave Belway, second Ryan LeDrew and lead Darrell (Heavy D) Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; opened with a deuce and then counted singles in the third, fourth and fifth ends to stop Geall 7-3 in his opening game. The semifinals and championship game will be aired on Shaw TV and Shaw Direct on Saturday, Feb, 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 13 at 3 p.m. respectively. The winner advances to represent the province at the 2011 Tim Hortons Brier in London, Ont., March 5-13. â&#x2013;  Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sonja Gaudet, who curls third for Bob Macdonald of Richmond,

Macdonald opened Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final with a single steal, but gave up six points to Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gary Cormack on the way to an 8-3 loss. Cormack began the three-team spiel by

doubling Jim Armstrong 6-3 and thumping Macdonald 10-2 to earn a berth in the final. Armstrong blanked Macdonald 12-0 in the round-robin, but gave up singles in the fourth, fifth and sixth ends to fall 6-5 in a semifinal rematch.

The Penticton Vees look more like a hospital ward than a hockey team at the moment. Yet despite missing seven regulars from the lineup â&#x20AC;&#x201C; four with the flu, two with head injuries and captain Derik Johnson serving a suspension â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Vees made the Vernon Vipers work for a 3-2 B.C. Hockey League win Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. Vernon now has an eight-point lead in the Interior Conference, while the Salmon Arm SilverBacks (34-17-2-0) moved into a twoway tie for second with Penticton (33-172-2), but have more wins, and a game in hand on the Vees (two on Vernon). The Vipers visit the SilverBacks tonight at the Sunwave Centre and entertain the Merritt Centennials (20-27-1-6) Friday at Wesbild. They are 1-5-0-1 in their season series with the Gorillas.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve struggled against Salmon Arm so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a good measuring stick showing us where we are going into playoffs,â&#x20AC;? said Viper forward Pat McGillis, who earned first star against the Vees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we play 5-on-5 against Salmon Arm we outplay them, but when we go down shorthanded, or when we keep pucks to the outside and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get good scoring opportunities, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when they beat us.â&#x20AC;? Vernon, who dominated their season series with the Vees at 5-0-1, overwhelmed Penticton in the opening frame, outshooting the visitors 16-3 and earning a 2-0 lead on goals by defenceman Adam Thompson (seventh goal) and McGillis (12th). Thompson joined the rush and had Marcus Basaraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centering pass deflect off his skate past netminder Billy Faust at 3:07. It was the first whistle of the game. Shortly after a successful penalty kill, Vernon defenceman Brett Corkey fired a point shot that rebounded off the end

boards and behind the net to a wide open McGillis for an open-netter. Asked if he thought Corkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bank shot was intentional, McGillis smiled: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got pretty good vision on the ice. It was a nice pass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had the advantage of outworking them even though they might have had a couple good shifts. The shots (43-15 in Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favour) says something, and I think we dictated the pace of the game.â&#x20AC;? The Vees cut the lead in half early in the second period when, right after a penalty kill, third star Logan Johnston intercepted a puck in the neutral zone charged across the blueline and ripped a shot top corner on Viper netminder Blake Voth (13 saves). Vernon restored the two-goal cushion on a powerplay late in the second frame when Malcolm Lyles delivered a slick slap pass to Bryce Kakoske at the side of the net for a quick redirect goal.

Kal collects silver Morning Star Staff

The Kalamalka Lakers fell 72-61 to the L.V. Rogers Bombers of Nelson in Saturday’s final of the Bombers Senior Boys Invitational Basketball Classic. The teams were tied after three quarters before the Lakers got into foul trouble in the fourth. Kal reached the final by stopping Selkirk Storm of Castlegar 67-59 and brushing back the Mt. Sentinel Wildcats of South Slocan 67-49. “Our team was lead by veterans Alex Steinley and Patrick Schindler, who picked up an MVP award for the weekend,” said assistant coach Kait Serafin. “Game stars were Kevin Pontious, Nathan Meyer, and Zoro Zhang. Other notables were Max Wilford, Paul Major, Robbie Graydon, Jashan Jhajj. It was a team effort. The boys are really starting to believe in themselves.” The Lakers take their ever-improving game to North Zone league play tonight when they host the Fulton

Maroons (8:15). Fulton is 3-0, Kal 1-3. The Maroons bowed 68-55 to the Abbotsford Huskies in consolation action Saturday at the Sa-Hali Sabres Classic in Kamloops, placing sixth. “It was another poor start for us and we looked tired the whole game,” said Fulton manager Riley Mottus. “We went down 14 in the first quarter and then played our best quarter of basketball in the second bringing it to a four-point game. The second half really wasn’t our time.” Greg Hyde flushed 22 points and a dozen boards, while Ben Olson canned 14 points and Dustin Popoff earned seven rebounds. Guard Spencer Kaneda of the Maroons made the tournament allstar team. Earlier Saturday, the Maroons grounded the Duchess Park Condors of Prince George 69-52. Hyde dialed up 27 points and 20 rebounds, while Olson produced 11 points and 10 boards.

bles on the weekend. Walton drained 20 points and eight boards, while Smith netted seven points. Bobbie Jones and Kailee Streichert did a great job on the boards, recording eight and seven rebounds respectively. The Fulton Maroons toppled the George Elliot Coyotes 72-62 Saturday to win the Coyotes’ fourteam senior girls tournament. Game MVP Tavia Lochhead fired 22 points for the Maroons, who trailed 35-31 at the half. Amanda Sakamoto and Karlee Webb each nailed 18 points. Nicky Sellinger counted 15 points for the Coyotes, while Yax Brandace and Arden Boehm each sank 14. “George Elliot hit some outrageous threes to stay in this and with the three Grade 10s in the lineup and Kelsey (Thompson)

The VSS Panthers went 2-2 while facing some of the province’s elite teams in the York House Tigers Senior Girls Basketball Tournament in Vancouver. The Cats finished play Saturday by falling 90-57 to the No. 2 Holy Cross Crusaders of Surrey. “Holy Cross got off to a fast start and never looked back,” said Bobby Mitchell, co-coach alongside Lonny Mazurak. “We managed to get to within 12 points in the third but Holy Cross had a strong final push for the win.” Emily Kanester canned 20 points and 10 rebounds, while all-star Michelle Smith recorded 18 points and seven rebounds and Brit Walton added eight points and seven rebounds. Earlier, the Cats bowed 82-42 to No. 1 York House with Walton pocketing 20 points and six rebounds. The Tigers jumped out to a 25-3 first-quarter lead by forcing several turnovers. “We were proud of our girls who came out from half time and played hard right to the finish,” said Mitchell, whose team is now ranked No. 6. Kanester rung up 10 points and six rebounds, while Smith chipped in with six points and seven boards. “Overall we must have got better as we played the number one, two and fourth-ranked teams in the province, and getting better is always our goal,” said Mitchell. “We know we have things to work on and we will do just that. Rookies Abbey Jones and Bailey Limb really showed they are ready and belong here with great weekends.” VSS opened by brushing off Crofton House Cubs of Vancouver 71-60 behind 19 points by Walton and a dozen by Smith. Kanester added 11 points and eight rebounds. In their third game early Saturday, the Panthers iced the Sa-Hali Sabres of Kamloops 61-56 behind 24 points and 10 rebounds from Kanester, collecting one of two double dou-

out, we seemed to lose both our team concept and our composure just a little in the second quarter,” said Fulton coach Jim Inglis. “In the second, we seemed settled from the outset and Tavia (Lochhead) and Amanda (Sakamoto) did a much better job of forcing the play without turnovers and the teamwork reappeared. “Melissa Silva again was outstanding but fellow Grade 11s Ty Souque and Danika Serafin certainly did more than their share to turn things defensively. Our Grade 10s (Sam Ferrier, Hana Ouchi and Danielle Olson) certainly got over their jitters and proved they are ready for this level.” Fulton visits the Pleasant Valley Saints Saturday night in league play.

Nicholson nets first Continued from B1 Lyles, who earned third star, drew a pair of hooking penalties as Penticton players tried to slow him down on the rush. Said Vipers’ assistant coach Jason Williamson: “They’re missing some guys and for whatever reason sometimes those games are tough to play. Their goalie gave them a chance to win and we missed some opportunities early to put the game out of reach.” Penticton answered on the very next shift as Grant Nicholson was credited for his first BCHL goal on a scramble at 18:26. “(Tyler) Hlookoff came down, shot it and it just went in off my shin pad. A lucky goal. Any kind are good,” smiled Nicholson, who plays with the KIJHL Penticton Lakers. Grant is the son of Bob Nicholson, president and CEO of Hockey Canada, who played with the Penticton Broncos in the early 70s. The 17-year-old Calgary native is thrilled to be following the family legacy. “It’s nice just to follow him and be part of what he did,” said Grant. Vees’ head coach Fred Harbinson was impressed with how his call-ups handled the pressure. “When you have eight regulars out of the lineup, it’s pretty tough. The APs (affiliate players) we brought up were outstanding. It’s a great environment for them to come in and play.” With a first-round bye looking more and more improbable, Harbinson is now

focussing on getting his lineup healthy for the post-season. “It doesn’t really matter where you finish. You’re still going to have to go through some darn good hockey clubs to get out of our division. “The nice thing is the flu can’t stick around for too long and the guys that have the injuries will hopefully be back before playoffs.” Meanwhile, Stefan Jensen recorded three goals as the Osoyoos Coyotes outlasted the North Okanagan Knights 4-3 in KIJHL action Sunday afternoon at Nor-Val Sports Centre. The Knights (18-28-1-1) built up a 3-2 lead early in the second period on goals by Patrick Chore (11th), Thomas Swales (fifth) and Steve Pantazopolous (sixth). Jensen’s hat trick goal (43rd) five minutes into the third frame stood as the winner. The Knights visit the first-place Coyotes (39-2-2-4) Friday at the Osoyoos Sun Bowl and end their regular season Saturday against the host Revelstoke Grizzlies (38-90-1) at the Forum.

Mustangs jacked for Coke Classic Morning Star Staff

Jagger Williamson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it will take much for the Vernon Watkin Motors Mustangs to get jacked about opening the 40th annual Coca-Cola Pee Wee Invitational Hockey Tournament Thursday morning against the Anchorage All-Stars at Civic Arena. The Mustangs are totally ready for the eight-team international classic after being swept by the Kelowna Rockets in the Okanagan Mainline Pee Wee Tier 1 league semifinal series Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m kind of excited and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to get the team pumped up too,â&#x20AC;? said Williamson, when asked if he was nervous about the prestigious tourney. The 12-year-old captain is a sparkplug for the Mustangs, firing seven goals and 18 points in league play, second on the team behind Kaden Black (13-8-21). Kelowna iced the Mustangs 5-1 Sunday at Wesbild Centre after taking Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opener 8-0 in Kelowna. The Mustangs face the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies of Vancouver Island in Thursday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feature game at 6 p.m. and then tangle with the powerful St. Albert Sabres Friday AT 3 p.m. In other games Thursday, Juan de Fuca meets St. Albert at 10:15 a.m., the Campbell River Tyees tangle with the red-hot Simons Valley Rebels of Calgary at 12:30 p.m., the Surrey Thunder play the Spokane Jr. Chiefs at 2:45 p.m. and St. Albert battles Anchorage at 8 p.m. The semifinals go Saturday at 12:30 and 2:45 p.m., while the A final is scheduled for Sunday at 6 p.m. Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nixon Wenger Thrashers are going to a third and deciding game with Kamloops in the Pee Wee Tier 2 semifinals. A streaking Kyle Sherwood took a feed from Bryn Bedard and using Austin Caldwell as a decoy, roofed the overtime winner glove side as Vernon won a 3-2 thriller Sunday at Priest Valley Arena. Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bench erupted as both coaches and players celebrated their best game of the season and a well-deserved victory. The Thrashers, trying to salvage a 1-161 regular season, lost the opener 9-1 in Kamloops. Vernon opened up the scoring on a sweet goal by Jason Shaigec after Logan Imrich took a hit to make the breakaway pass. Kamloops equalized and the teams went into the ice clean at 1-1. Kamloops (5-10-3) scored the go-ahead goal on a deflection off a skate past Shane Meadhal, who stood tall in net all game.

With less than four minutes left to play, Vernon pressed hard, and with some determined effort, Sherwood scored from Riley Swiscoski. Vernon almost notched the winner on a designed play with 20 seconds left. With the hometown fans hoarse from screaming, Vernon and Kamloops went into a sudden-death 10-minute period. Sherwood ended things at 5:25. In the opener, Vernon tied it 1-1 on a blast from the point from Ethan King assisted by Sam Eggert and Sherwood. Kamloops took a 2-1 lead into the ice clean.

Scott and Sharla Baillie never gave up hope for their daughter, Isabella. “Hope is the last thing you can believe in. We almost lost hope but there are people who give you hope and they didn’t give up on us or her,” said Sharla. Last February, Sharla went to pick up Bella (as the family calls Isabella) at Harwood school, not knowing it would be a day that would change the family’s life. “I went into the classroom and there she was playing and interacting with her classmates for the first time ever. She ran up to me and said, ‘Guess what Mom? I can write my name!’ And she had written her name for the first time ever. I broke into tears,” she said. “From that moment on, it was like a light clicked on for her. She could stay in class for longer times and she started to sing the alphabet like she had done before and she speaks clearly.” While it is not unusual for Grade 1 students to write their names or know the alphabet, for Bella, it was a miracle. She had been a lively, bright three-yearold in the summer of 2006, playing with her older sister and cousin in a backyard pool. The two other girls found Bella face down in the pool, pulled her to the side and kept her head above water while they called for help. A family member who is a nurses’ aide did CPR and Bella was checked by paramedics and her family doctor. Her parents were told that she had had a near- or dry-drowning experience, that no water had entered her lungs and she would be fine. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief at tragedy averted. “I noticed a change in her soon after, she regressed in some ways, but was told it was the shock she had had,” said Sharla, who also had a two-year-old at the time and was pregnant with her fourth child. Bella had her first seizure in early September. “She started to go down really fast. She was having as many as 160 seizures an hour, some invisible to us, some visible,” said Scott. “She forgot her name, everything that had happened before the accident, she couldn’t feed herself and had to be potty-trained all over again. She couldn’t hold a train of thought long enough to communicate. You wouldn’t know what you were dealing with from day to day.” Bella was back and forth to Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. The diagnosis was undiagnosed seizure disorder. She was treated with a variety of medications and just when something gave her parents a glimmer of hope, things would get worse again. In April 2007, Bella had a massive seizure at pre-school and was rushed to the hospital in Vernon and then by air ambulance to Children’s Hospital. Scott went with her and found himself in Vancouver having forgotten his wallet in the haste to get to Bella. Sharla was at home in a panic and unable to do anything with the other children and a three-week-old baby.

The Baillie family — Sharla and Scott Baillie, and their children, Isabella, Emily, Rylan and Sarah — will be on the Variety Club Telethon Feb. 13 to talk about how Variety helped them after Isabella’s near-drowning in 2006. It was then that staff at NONA, which had been working with the family, contacted the Variety Club on their behalf. “I got a call at the hospital from someone at the Variety Club telling us they would take care of everything,” said Scott. “We were at the coast for a total of about eight months and they helped with all the transportation and accommodation at Easter Seal House. I don’t know what we would have done without the help. We had been trying to pay for things ourselves but it was tight financially. I was missing work and Sharla was on maternity leave. We came close to losing our house, it was that bad.”

“We want people to know how we were helped, that Variety is there with hope when you think there can’t be any more hope.” — Sharla Baillie Scott worked as much as he could — he works at SUN FM in Kelowna — while Sharla, who was store manager at Complete Pet Mart, had to be home with the children. Bella continued to have seizures and her health and behaviour were unpredictable. “On May 22, 2009, our 10th anniversary, which should have been a wonderful celebration for us, we had Bella at the hospital for a check up and the doctors told us they couldn’t do any more for her. That destroyed us. Scott shut down and I went into survival mode to care for the children,” said Sharla. Scott said candidly, “I don’t know how

our marriage survived those years. There has been a lot of guilt, shame and remorse and it was tough to rely on others but we have dealt with that. Each time we could see some changes for good with a new medication, then it would fail and we’d be back where we were with Bella falling down in seizures.” In the fall of 2009, they took a risk with a new medication. “We could see the change in her by February. She was down to one seizure a day. By March she could remember for longer periods of time. She was coordinated enough to use the two-handed control for the Wii. She could have a birthday party because she understood that it was her birthday,” said Scott. “It was a miracle that she got better. Variety bailed us out, I don’t know what would have happened without them. That’s what your money does when you give to Variety. It helps families. We want to tell our story to give back.” Bella, now seven, continues to improve and learn. She can make plans in advance and carry through with them. It will take time to make up for lost time and it is possible that she could regress again but the family is enjoying being back to a normal household. “Things are so good, I’m afraid to believe it’s really good,” said Sharla. “There are so many people who have been so good to us, the Variety Club, the hospital, the public health nurses, the teachers and the school and pre-school. “We want people to know how we were helped, that Variety is there with hope when you think there can’t be any more hope.” Bella and the family will be on the Variety Club Telethon Feb. 13 on Global TV between noon and 4 p.m. and their story will be featured on the Global morning news the previous week.

Going decadent for Valentine’s Day

I

received a letter from one of my readers while I was on holidays, who was frustrated with a recipe for sweet and sour apricot chicken that ran a few weeks back. The letter was unsigned with no return address so I couldn’t offer a reply. However, that particular recipe always gets good results for me and I had good feedback from others on it. A word of advice when adjusting any chicken recipe: in this case using deboned chicken breasts instead of whole chicken pieces, you would Cathi Litzenberger have to decrease the cooking time because dark/mixed bone-in chicken always takes more cooking time, as the recipe called for. As well, you would have to increase the liquid required because a whole chicken in pieces gives off more juices than deboned chicken breasts. Hopefully this will be of help. Now on to Valentine’s Day. I’ve been asked for decadent chocolate brownie recipes and have a couple here that are prize winners. Both would be perfect for dessert with perhaps a dollop of whipped cream and a strawberry on the side.

to get ready to start seedlings. If you have a good greenhouse, you can start pansies, petunias and many others. If not, you should wait until mid-March. Tomato plants have a bad habit of reaching for the light. As soon as the daytime temperature rises, put them outside in good light. Mid-March is also a good time to start those begonia tubers. Look for tubers that are firm and showing signs of budding. They will be in bloom about 60 days later. When you plant begonias, do not cover with soil: lay the tuber on the soil with the top exposed. When starting seeds or tubers, be very careful not to overwater: some moisture is needed, but never soggy wet. I am looking forward to a very active year for Communities in Bloom. This organization deserves support by the community.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Jacqueline O’Neill Dahm on the nineteenth of January, 2011. She passed peacefully with her children at her side in an atmosphere of love and caring. She will be profoundly missed by her family and friends. Jacqueline had a full and active life blessed by longevity. Jacqueline was born in England and came to Canada as a war bride and raised a family of four children in Calgary, Alberta. She was very involved in the community, an avid student of the arts and a caring soul for all those in need. She and her husband Allan retired to Vernon, B.C. where she continued her selÀess works, becoming a volunteer teacher’s aide for twenty years, travelling and writing. She published three books and remained active in the community up until her passing.

Jacqueline also established a bursary to educate B.C. doctors in perpetuity, and a bursary to continue the support of the multitude charities she supported in life. All who knew Jacqueline will miss her, though her legacy lives on. Lady Jacqueline we miss you so, Though we knew it was your time to go. We will miss you every day, Even though in peace you lay. Goodbye fair lady, with tears we part, You are forever in our hearts. Goodbye Lady Jacqueline, until we meet again.

Lillian Mellows We regret to announce the death of Lillian Mellows at Hospice House on February 5th 2011. Lillian was in her 99th year, and until a few weeks ago she enjoyed excellent health and a very full life. She has lived with her son Jeff and his children and grandchildren since immigrating to Canada at the age of 71. Her husband had died seven years earlier. Lillian has a daughter, Tina, living in England, who also has many children and grandchildren. In her later years, Lillian’s two enthusiasms were knitting little stuffed teddy bears and playing bridge with her many friends. She created more than 3000 bears, no two alike, and made sure that they were distributed to needy children. And people came to play bridge with her three, four or even five evenings every week, appreciating her skill as a player and as a hostess. Lillian was a survivor of the London Blitz, her home being destroyed by one of the last V2 rockets in early 1945. A gathering of friends and family to pay their respects and honour her remarkable life will be held at her home at 3.30 PM, Sunday February 13th.

CHRISTIAN JOSEPH KRONBAUER We regret to announce the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on February 2, 2011, of Christian Joseph Kronbauer, at the age of 88 years. Chris was born in Rutland in 1922. Chris served in the Canadian Army during WW2 and saw action in North Africa, Italy, and Holland. After the war Chris moved to Vernon and, in 1947, married Sophie Malysh. They were married for 63 years. In 1948, Chris was hired by Canada Post and was “Chris the Postman” to many Vernon residents. He retired from the Post Office in 1981. Chris was a reserve member of the BC Dragoons and rose to the rank of Sgt. Major. Chris was an active member of the Canadian Legion and held most offices including President. Chris was a great crib player, loved to camp and was well known for his quirky sense of humour. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife, Sophie; daughters Carol Kronbauer of Victoria and Kathie (Dwayne) Arychuk of Edmonton; and grandchildren Greg and Jordan. He is also survived by brother, Charles (Ena) of Vernon and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members. Chris was predeceased by brother, Joseph, and daughter Christine. A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, February 10, at 1:00 p.m. at St. James’ Roman Catholic Church, with Father Dale Normandeau officiating.
