Cuts forced by HST defeat

JENNIFER SMITH

Morning Star Staff

Vernon residents are finally enjoying record-breaking weather. Following the drawn-out cool spring, summer proved to be a hot one in August and September. In fact Thursday’s high of 32.1 C was the hottest its been since the early 1900s for Sept. 8. The mark easily beat 30.7 in 2006. Following a sun-packed weekend, it’s likely even more records could melt away. “We could have a crack at a couple more days here on the weekend,” said Doug Lundquist, Environment Canada meteorologist. The normal highs for this time of year are 22, with lows around 8. “There’s a very high probability that we’ll be around or above normal to (Sept.) 23rd,” said Lundquist. The forecast for today is 29, followed by 30 on Monday, 27 for Tuesday and then temperatures are expected to drop down to the mid to low 20s for the remainder of the week. “It’s still pretty decent for this time of year,” said Lundquist. Yet as fall prepares to settle in, and the dark of evening gets longer, Lundquist warns that temperatures will begin to drop. “Every day it’s harder and harder to warm up.” Cooler mornings and evenings are becoming a norm, but vary greatly depending on where you live. “There can be a massive difference from one neighbourhood to another,” said Lundquist, as lakeside residents may still find their homes warm at night while those under the mountain’s shade are digging out their sweaters. “Every house is different.” With that in mind he urges residents to take advantage of the sunshine while it’s here. “I hate to remind people of this but in just two months it could snow. It’s just hard to believe.”

Widespread cuts are possible now that the failed harmonized sales tax has led B.C.’s deficit to triple. The provincial government says all spending levels will be reviewed because rejection of the HST by voters will generate $2.3 billion in losses over three years. “There are repercussions from going backwards in the HST. Everyone said this would happen,” said Eric Foster, VernonMonashee MLA. “It’s going to take a couple of years to Eric Foster get our house in order.” The Ministry of Finance states funding for health care and education will be protected but all other ministries and agencies will have to look at ways to reduce costs. Foster would not speculate on the scope of cuts. “We will have to wait and see how the ministries deal with it,” he said. “We can’t just keep racking up debt so we have to cut costs.” Foster says the prospect of budget reducCarole Gordon tions isn’t fear-mongering or an attempt to punish people who voted against the HST. “These are the numbers,” he said of the government’s financial projections. The North Okanagan Labour Council is not impressed with the government’s financial record. “In just two-and-a-half years, the Liberals have spent a $1.6 billion grant to implement a tax for which they had no mandate, increased costs to families, and tripled the deficit,” said president Carole Gordon. “They’ve increased salary and compensation packages for top executives and promised zero improvements for provincial employees. The next 18 months will see increases to income tax and huge cuts to provincial budgets. The Liberal economic policy has clearly failed B.C. workers.” Attempts to remove Foster from office have resurfaced. A recall campaign, which started earlier this year, was on hold until after the HST referendum. Organizers are now planning to relaunch the initiative. “He’s not addressing his constituents,” said Rod Baziw, campaign spokesperson, of Foster. Baziw says Foster is taking credit for items that have been planned for years, such as the grid road in Coldstream. He also says some key issues are being ignored. “The government isn’t finishing the two top floors of the hospital,” he said. Foster insists he has been representing the interests of constituents and he has been lobbying for more acute care beds at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. “They are entitled to their opinion,” he said of the recall campaign.

Betton appointed Supreme Court justice ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

For more than 20 years as a defence lawyer, Vernon’s Al Betton made sure, when he was going into B.C. Supreme Court, he knew what judge was sitting. Betton would do his homework and find out about a certain judge’s nuances, or how one judge might emphasize different matters. Now that he’s sitting as a Supreme Court justice, Betton is expecting lawyers to do the same about him. Betton, 50, was recently appointed to the B.C. Supreme Court after four years as a provincial court judge. “We’ve always been lucky in that we’ve always had good judges in the valley and as a lawyer, you have to work to who your audience is,� said Betton, recently returned from an annual motorcycle excursion with five friends to northern California. “No doubt,

“It’s a huge honour to make the cut.� — Al Betton the same now applies to me.� Betton’s appointment comes just after four-plus years since he was named to the provincial court judge ranks after more than 20 years as a defence lawyer with Vernon’s Nixon-Wenger firm. He was officially welcomed to the Supreme Court at a small ceremony in Kelowna. “It’s obviously a huge responsibility and a huge honour to make the cut,� said Betton, whose appointment brings to four the number of B.C. Supreme Court judges in the Okanagan.

He expects to spend the majority of time working cases in Vernon and Kelowna, though he will get called to preside over trials in Vancouver. Betton’s promotion won’t change his view of the work being easier or harder going from provincial court matters to Supreme Court. Both levels, for him, are fascinating and rewarding. “In provincial court, there’s a much bigger volume, more cases, more people and a little more people-oriented as there is more direct dealing with people, more people are self-represented,� he said. “There are more cases, it’s more hands-on and there’s a little less writing as you make so many decisions on the bench. “Supreme Court is a little more paper heavy by nature, and it tends to be a little denser from legal issues and the cases tend to be longer and the volume drops off. You spend more time reading and writing in

Supreme than in provincial. Both courts have their challenges.� Betton began his Supreme Court career with a criminal trial case in Kelowna.

Housing activity climbs Morning Star Staff

Local housing construction has experienced an upward swing. There were 17 housing starts in Vernon in August, a six per cent increase from 16 starts during the same month in 2010. Those 17 starts consist of 10 single-detached units (down 29 per cent from 14 units in 2010) and seven multiple units (up 250 per cent from two units). Year-to-date, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation reports there have been 104 units constructed in Vernon. That is down 39 per cent from 170 units during the same eight months in 2010.

Headaches And Neck Pain Some headache sufferers experience headaches so frequently and for so long that they begin to think it must be normal for them. CAT scans of the head in search of the cause frequently come up negative. Treatment usually ends up being some form of pain-killing drug, which can lead to unwanted side effects and may not address the cause of the problem. The cause of these headaches is often overlooked because much of the pain can actually be referred from the neck. When I perform an examination, I often find that the patient may also suffer from neck pain, neck restriction, tight cervical muscles, muscular trigger points, postural imbalances, tingling in the hands, and sometimes arm pain. X-rays often reveal that the natural spinal curve and alignment of the vertebrae have been lost. When nerves in your spine get pinched, they alert you with pain. The relationship between such misalignments of the neck and headaches is so common that it is even given its own category: cervicogenic headaches. Sometimes patients with the above mentioned neck problems don’t experience headache symptoms at all. Conversely, a patient may experience headaches only, without any form of neck discomfort. The pain pattern for each individual person depends on where exactly the nerve pressure in their body lies. This is why symptoms can be so misleading and why so many pain sufferers never get any answers. I have personally witnessed hundreds of patients being freed from headaches and neck pain—naturally, without medications. I am also alarmed at the number of children who suffer headaches that are told it is a normal part of growing. There is nothing “normal” about headaches or neck pain. The cause should always be sought. If these problems sound familiar to you or a child you know, one consultation with our office may change the rest of your/their life. Written by Dr. Elliot Lysyk

A sombre anniversary

I

certainly remember where I was when it happened. But I’m sure that’s the case for anyone over a certain age 10 years ago today. My wife had trouble sleeping that morning and was up watching television early on Sept. 11, 2001, when she called out to me and said something like “I think you should get up and take a look at this.” All the channels had switched to live coverage of a plane flying into one of the towers at the World Trade Center in New York City. At first it was very confusing. Was this an accident? How could it be an accident? And soon, fear gripped a continent as it became increasingly obvious it was no accident as a second Glenn Mitchell plane slammed into the other tower and reports came in of similar incidents in Washington, D.C. As the enormity of the event escalated exponentially right before our eyes, anxiety increased and fear spread like wildfire. How many other planes were there? Is some country or some group of madmen trying to take over control of the United States? Is this the beginning of World War III? Why did this happen? How could this happen? Meanwhile it was announced that all air traffic in North America had been grounded and it began to dawn on everyone how huge this moment in modern history was going to be. I began to get restless as the coverage continued and the kids woke up and they started witnessing this tragedy and its aftermath and if I couldn’t make sense of it all how could they possibly deal with it? Not to mention if it was scaring me watching the mayhem what kind of effect was it having on them? (Four months later when we wanted to take a family trip to Maui our seven-year-old was refusing to go as there was no way he was getting on a plane ever again after what he saw on that day and the reoccurring onslaught of news coverage that was hard to keep him away from. I don’t know if Dr. Phil would approve but it got so bad we finally took him to the doctor and got the medical professional, who was briefed, to tell him it was safe to

MITCHELL’S MUSINGS

fly once again. It worked.) There was a real sense in the early going that the world that we woke up to every day and took for granted was rapidly spinning out of control. I remember steering the kids away from the TV and trying to get on with our day. You know how if you do normal, routine things, maybe you could regain that sense of reality again. I remember it was a Tuesday and I was glad to take out the garbage for once. But even that turned surreal because as I placed the refuse on the curb I looked up and there was a jet flying high overhead leaving a white trail in the beautiful blue sky. Sudden impact. I pondered that the plane would soon be ordered out of the sky for security reasons and thought about the magnitude of such an exercise and what a small, interconnected, insecure world we live in where a terrorist attack thousands of miles away can inflict, almost instantly, so much mayhem worldwide. And the impact continues today after billions of dollars spent on security at airports, so many lives lost in the original and subsequent attacks and then in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention the price we pay in personal privacy and freedoms in the continuing war on terrorism. On this sombre anniversary it’s worth considering whether the war on terrorism is working or not, although several top terrorist leaders have been eliminated, including No. 1. However there’s no going back and there’s no way we’ll ever feel as safe as we did on the day before Sept. 11, 2011. As we take a moment today to reflect and mourn the loss of life of the innocent victims, the heroic firefighters and emergency personnel and so many others directly involved and the families they left behind, we should also keep something else in mind. Such an unthinkable, tragic event also took a toll on all who witnessed it and live in a world still coming to grips with the meaning of its impact. As we pass through security checks at the airport, or listen to the news about heightened terror threats, or read about even more terrorist attacks throughout the rest of the world, we do so with less detachment, more empathy, more diligence and an absence of innocence.

There will be those in the Liberal government who will want to say, “I told you so,” to voters. After all, the government warned the sky would fall if British Columbians shot down the harmonized sales tax and returned to its provincial counterpart. As we all know, a majority of voters gave the HST the boot during the referendum, and now Victoria is claiming that will force B.C.’s deficit to triple to $2.3 billion over three years. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon says there is no choice but to tighten the belt and ministries and agencies will have to cut costs. Given that staffing makes up the majority of most budgets, watch for pink slips to be handed out. However, blaming voters for this situation would be simplistic given that the referendum was a direct result of government bungling. It was the Liberals who always opposed an HST but reversed thrusters just days after an election and accepted the tax. Promises that the HST would be revenueneutral and not negatively impact families were found to be hollow. Many people were turned off by the hard-sell the government launched prior to the referendum, and particularly over the use of taxpayers’ own money. Had the Liberals followed the proper process and gone to the public early on for legitimate consultation over the HST, then perhaps the tax would still be in place and the current financial mess would be avoidable. But instead, the government did an end-run around due process and British Columbians are now paying the price. Ultimately, the ballooning deficit says far more about the Liberals’ loss of public confidence than it does about British Columbians’ ability to understand complex financial matters.

More beds are needed but...

I

n my role as a parish priest in Vernon, I regularly visit people in Vernon Jubilee Hospital. I applaud the people at the hospital who do a wonderful job. However, I do not believe the hospital needs more beds. Instead, we need more beds and accommodations outside of the hospital. Many of the people in hospital are there because the community lacks facilities for them in places that would be more appropriate. I visit people who are dying and do not need the acute care of a hospital. They need a quiet place, like a hospice, in which they can receive the care they need to be comfortable as they live out their last days. Others are recovering from broken bones and orthopedic surgery, and need to be moved to facilities where they can receive the physiotherapy and pain man-

PEOPLE POWER According to the Regional District of the North Okanagan, only seven per cent of the land in B.C. is suitable for agriculture and 39 per cent of that land is located in the North Okanagan. Some day that land will become extremely valuable. Many places on this planet will no longer be producers of crops due to global warming. Tens of thousands of people have died recently in Africa because of a drought caused by climate change. One easy and effective way to slow down global warming is for everyone to eat less meat. Livestock is the number one cause of global warming according to the International Panel on Climate Change. Livestock animals produce methane gas which is 24 times more potent than CO2 as a GHG (greenhouse gas) and they also produce nitrous oxide, which is 296 times more potent than CO2 as a GHG. There are 20 billion livestock animals on this planet. Dr. Aryan Tavakkoli, a respiratory specialist in a hospital in New Zealand says, "the biggest thing we can do with the most powerful impact to protect our children's

agement they need until they can return home. However, in the absence of space, these folks are left in acute care in hospital. Still others have arrived in hospital after a fall, heart attack, or other sudden event which has left them unable to return to

future and ensure a bright future for the planet and to improve our own health is to change our diet dramatically. Individuals have tremendous power through our lifestyle choices." Paul McCartney is promoting this solution by having people support his Meat Free Monday cause. The website is www.supportMFM. org. Buying local produce also helps to eliminate GHG. The second largest cause of GHG is transportation. The solution is to walk and cycle more, drive less and to replace gas engines with electric motors. The North Okanagan is a great place to grow fruit and vegetables and has talented people who can convert cars from gas to electric. Terry Dyck OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS When I was a girl growing up in Chilliwack, the Fraser Valley was dotted with beehive burners, many neighbours had outhouses, many had indoor toilets with cesspools out back and most days you could smell the city dump, which was always on fire. My point is that we didn't have the foresight or the knowledge to

living independently (the event may have impaired their physical abilities or triggered dementia, so they would be unsafe alone). These people can spend weeks, or even months, in acute care beds while waiting for placement in a suitable facility.

see that we were polluting our health and indeed the very health of our planet. If there is a way to safely dispose of 400 tonnes of garbage per day, plus harness the energy to add to the grid, don't let CanKor take their offer somewhere else. The infrastructure that would be put in place for a $200 million project would surely include road improvements and maintenance. I, for one, abhor the thought that my great-grandchildren could be living and playing in a housing development that was built on 200 feet of landfill. Sharon Burton CALLING THE PLAY It doesn't have to be football season for me to play armchair quarterback. It's great fun really. Because it can never happen, I can't lose. I practise on all kinds of things, even politics. Here is one play I would call tomorrow if I were in charge. Although we are told the economy is in good shape right now, I don't believe them. If the government is still cutting back services and they can't afford to properly fund the hospital, why would I, why would anyone?

In almost all of these cases, the acute care beds of a hospital are not the right place. Staying in hospital leaves such people open to infection. Plus, they are in a noisy setting where real rest is difficult. Because the community lacks facilities for people outside the hospital, they end up in acute care beds. This situation is costly - in both financial and human terms: acute care beds are far more expensive to operate than spaces in a hospice, rehabilitation facility, or care home. People unnecessarily using acute care beds are getting less-than-ideal care. Moreover, their use of those spaces gets in the way of people who really need the beds. We don't need more hospital beds. We need more outside-of-hospital beds. Rev. Rita Harrison

My play to put things right would start by removing all sales tax on all real estate transactions, all building materials and anything that is associated with the construction industry and new building starts. My reasoning is clearly obvious. The bulk of the economy relies on the construction trade and the housing market, so get that moving and ...touchdown. Before some official flags me offside, saying the government cannot afford to lose all of that amount of sales tax money, I'll remind them the materials will still be on the shelf and the housing market will be zero if it stays as is. With the skilled trades back to work, the tax shortfall would soon be recovered. Money would be found to open the two floors at VJH. And, oh, by the way, if your trade requires you to wear a hard hat, don't bother dusting if off just yet. Remember this is just like the economy, wishful thinking.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for the community. The annual United Way drive-thru breakfast fundraiser takes place Thursday and proceeds will go towards 27 non-profit groups that provide services to residents. “I hope everyone comes out and has fun. Don’t miss it,” said Linda Yule, United Way executive director. The fundraiser runs from 6 to 9 a.m. at the Best Western Vernon Lodge and volunteers will be handing out bags full of goodies. The bags are often snapped up early so the number of bags has been bumped up to 800 this year. “People come through like crazy and the event is so much fun,” said Yule. “People are always asking me when it’s going to happen.” One of the bags will include a grand prize of two tickets to two Seattle Mariners games and two nights accommodation.

It’s believed any service from the BX-Swan Lake department could be temporary as the City of Vernon may ultimately respond to fires under contract. “They will provide coverage once they get a fire hall at Predator Ridge (which is in Vernon),� said Gavinchuk.

District crunches the numbers RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Lake Country staff and politicians are hitting the financial books. On Tuesday, council approved the schedule for the 2012 budget process. “We want to have a clear indication of what will be done in the year and how to pay for it,� said Coun. Noreen Guenther. The 2011 financial plan included a 3.9 per cent tax increase, but it’s not known how much taxes may climb next year. Guenther admits the municipality continues to face challenges in terms of generating revenue and providing services. “We are working our way out of the economic slump we’ve seen but we still need to be cautious about what we take on,� she said. The budget process will begin Oct. 11 with a review of the district’s corporate business plan. That will be followed by several other meetings, and then the expected final presentation to council and public input Jan. 31. It’s anticipated council would consider adoption of the 2012 budget by May 8 at the latest. One possible challenge is there is a civic election in November and some current council members may not serve another term and there may be new faces at the table. Guenther insists current council will not tie the hands of the newly elected officials over the budget. “Staff and council is making provisions so the new council will have ample say in the budget,� she said. “They will be able to put their own stamp on things.�

If you are looking for a way to serve the community, the Lumby Fire Department may have an opportunity for you. The department is seeking new members and anyone interested in receiving information can drop by the fire hall Tuesday at 7 p.m. “They can check out the hoses and try the turn-out gear on,” said chief Tony Clayton. “We will give them a ride in the trucks and they can talk to the crew.” The department presently has 21 members who serve the Village of Lumby and part of Area D. But turnover occurs and the organization is always looking for new recruits. “It’s a chance to give to the community,” said Clayton of the largely voluntary position although members do receive a stipend for call-outs and practices. “It’s also a good way to make new friends.” Besides attending fires, the department takes part in a number of community events like the Halloween fireworks and Lumby Days. Men and women wanting to join the department must be at least 19 years old

Despite narrowly missing one of the three B.C. Ambassador crowns, Vernon’s Kelsey von Holst proved to be a worthy competitor. The 19-year-old recently returned from an event in Merritt, where she picked up five awards and two scholarships. “I was happy to be able to walk away with some money for school,” said the former Queen Silver Star, whose business administration classes resume at Okanagan College. “I’m ready to start on school and get busy with that.” Up against 12 other competitors, von Holst was among the top five in the following categories: sponsorship, community presentation and top fundraiser. She was also named one of the top people’s picks (where supporters voted online for their favourite ambassador hopeful). “I was one of the top fundraisers, so I got back a quarter of what I raised,” said von Holst, who broke fundraising records by collecting $6,200 for the B.C. Ambassador program, therefore she was granted back $1,550. She also received the top promotion award for the ambassador program. “I promoted the program the best in my community. I came up with the idea of making a banner, which no one else has ever done before and now they’re considering doing that throughout the program.” North Okanagan residents may have noticed von Holst out at various community events throughout the summer, selling cotton candy and getting on stages where ever she could. In fact, she attended 18 events between June and August and broke records for sponsorship. “All she needed was 15 and she had 40 sponsors which is testimony to the support she had from community,

The Regional District of North Okanagan board has adopted the White Valley arts and culture master plan. Implementation of the plan will occur as funding becomes available. “Right now it’s not there so it will be done down the road,” said Eugene Foisy, Cherryville director. Among the recommendations of the master plan are to form a task force to implement the plan and create a business plan to determine space requirements for the Monashee Arts Council and review branding. It also suggests increased funding application activity and hiring a cultural services co-ordinator. Board reviews spending Groups receiving taxpayers’ funding will have to prove they are using it wisely. The Regional District of North Okanagan board will require itemized accounting on how funds are spent from organizations that receive grants. “We have to account for where the money is spent. Its taxpayers’ dollars,” said director Mike Gavinchuk, who lobbied for transparency in grants.

Vernon is on board with a national fundraising cause riding through town Monday. A dozen Okanagan riders will take on the 83-kilometre leg from Kelowna to Vernon in the National Bike Ride for Youth. The ride, which starts at 9 a.m. Monday, wraps up with a wind up party at Boston Pizza from 4 to 6 p.m. The community is invited to attend the event, which includes pizza and beverages, and help support the cause. The complete 3,000mile ride began Sept. 7 in Victoria and winds up in Montreal on Oct. 1. Riders include National Bank Financial investment advisors, their friends, family and clients, who have each been busy collecting a minimum $1,000 in pledges for the Free The Children’s Big Dreamers Award. The award will go to students involved with Free the Children to donate back to the Adopt a Village country and project of their choice. There are multiple Free the Children initiatives in Vernon. Clarence Fulton Secondary was involved in a project last year building a school in Kenya. Student Danika Serafin went on the Kenya trip and will be speaking about her experience at the wind-up event Monday. Meanwhile Sherman Dahl, with the Vernon branch of National Bank Financial, is lacing up for Monday’s ride in support of the cause and his community. “It’s a great concept,�

Directors dig up cash for new well at Mara park RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Money is being pumped into a cornerstone of the Mara community. The Regional District of North Okanagan will provide up to $22,000 for the drilling of a well at Patula Park on Highway 97A. “The well is many years old. There are antiquated pipes,” said Herman Halvorson, director for the area. Presently, the park accesses untreated surface water from Blurton Creek, and there is a concern about breaking pipes, potential contamination of the source and interruption of supply if flow in Blurton Creek is reduced. “Signs are currently posted indicating that water is not suitable for drinking and when events are held at the park, water is hauled in,” said Anna Page, RDNO’s sustainability co-ordinator, in a written memo. The $22,000 is based on a well 300 feet deep, but adjacent properties have found water at 150 feet so the ultimate cost

may be less than projected. Patula Park includes a covered gazebo, a hall with a kitchen and

bathrooms, an area for tennis and basketball, a playground and a ball diamond. “They have pan-

cake breakfasts there, soccer and ball” said Halvorson. “In the winter, they have hockey and skating

for the kids.” Patula Park is owned by the non-profit Mara Musical and Athletic Association and

RDNO’s funding will come from federal gas tax revenue. “It’s a long-held organization that benefits

the community and it meets the requirements of this funding,” said Trafford Hall, regional district administrator.

Schneider thrives on special teams GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

The Vancouver Canucks knew exactly what they were getting when they went after Vernon’s Stefan Schneider. A two-time recipient of the WHL Portland Winterhawks’ Bill Anderson Memorial Trophy for character and ability, along with the Robert R. Boss Memorial Award as the Hawks’ best defensive player, Schneider continued to display his responsible hockey style in his rookie season with Vancouver’s AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose. A defenceman-turned-centre, Schneider recorded two goals and two assists in 47 games, playing mainly fourthline minutes with the Moose. His minus-2 rating might indicate otherwise, but as one half of the Moose’s first-line penalty killing unit, he got the job done against the league’s top snipers. He also boasted the lowest penalty minutes-per-game total on the team (0.19), with just nine minutes served. “I was happy about that, working my way into special teams. When we were down, I wasn’t playing as much because that wasn’t really my role to score goals, but when we were up a goal I was out there every second or third shift,” said Schneider, who turns 22 in December. “I enjoy checking and shutting down those top guys so it’s something I’m working hard towards.” At 6-foot-4 and 206 pounds, Schneider had a distinct size advantage against WHL opposition. In minor pro, he is only slightly above average. “From being the oldest in junior to being one of the youngest in pro is an adjustment. I was still towering over some guys, but there’s a lot of guys bigger and stronger than I was. And just the speed of the game; everyone’s thinking a move ahead out there. “It took me about two weeks to a month to get used to the speed, but after that I fit right in and worked my way into the lineup and stayed there.” With his size advantage negated, Schneider, who agreed to a three-year, two-way contract with Vancouver in March 2010, is working on his mobility and explosiveness to keep up with the competition. Heading into Canucks rookie camp, he was hitting the gym five days a week, plus three on-ice sessions. “I’m just building strength, getting quicker. I’m in Kelowna three times a week working on my skating, working on my first three steps and quickness,” said Schneider. He reported to Vancouver for a medical — Stefan and fitness testing Friday. The camp has since relocated to Penticton for the Young Stars Tournament, featuring prospects from the Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks, Calgary Flames and relaunched Winnipeg Jets. Vancouver’s prospects open the tourney today against Edmonton. “Last year it was Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle from Edmonton, this year it’ll be Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (Oilers’ first overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft). There’s talent throughout the whole league and there’s talent throughout the prospects so it’s always a good battle and good tour-

Aaron Volpatti, a former Vernon Viper also signed with the Canucks, has been training with Schneider in the offseason. The two played some minutes together in Manitoba and he feels Schneider’s defensive skill set make him a valuable asset to the organization. “He could be a diamond-in-the-rough kind of guy. He didn’t really plan on playing pro, he was planning on going to college,” said Volpatti, a Revelstoke native. “Vancouver obviously saw something. He’s a helluva defensive player on the penalty kill. He’s a big boy and he’s probably going to get a little stronger in the next Schneider couple years.” With the Moose relocating to St. John’s to make way for the returning Winnipeg Jets, the Canucks turned to the Chicago Wolves as their new AHL affiliate. Schneider doesn’t think the change of scenery will matter much. If he had it his way, he’ll be apartment hunting in Vancouver. “I’m just going to go to Vancouver’s camp (starts Sept. 16), and when I have to go look for one (apartment) I’ll go look for one,” shrugged Schneider. “It (Chicago) should be pretty similar to Winnipeg for weather, so it shouldn’t be too much of an adjustment.”

“I enjoy checking and shutting down those top guys.”

Zalewski finished with a slick deke in close on netminder Dustin Nikkel before going top shelf. “It’s only exhibition, but it was nice to get that goal,” said Zalewski, who added at least 10 pounds of muscle to his 6-foot-3 frame in the offseason. “I was just working out hard with my brother (Steve Zalewski, AHL Albany Devils). I felt good at the start of camp, and I feel good on the ice. “We were far from our best tonight, with it being our first exhibition and we do have a lot of new faces, but I thought we made some nice plays tonight.” Vipers’ head coach Jason Williamson said he will be counting on Zalewski, one of 11 returnees, to be an offensive leader in the regular season. “Zee’s a big-time goal scorer. He scored some big ones for us last year and he’s going to be the guy we look for in times like that,” he said. Second-year forward Marcus Basara fed a streaking Jedd Soleway, who chipped a puck up and over netminder Steve Racine for Vernon’s first goal of the season just over a minute into the game. Westside equalized later in the frame when Tyson Witala skated into the attacking zone on a line change and stepped into a loose puck in the slot, picking the top corner on Kirby Halcrow at 16:33. The Warriors controlled more of the play as the

game went along, but neither team’s offence was particularly menacing. Halcrow, and in the second half, Vernon’s Danny Todosychuk, made some solid saves to keep Westside off the board. Todosychuk’s first big test was a pad save on former North Okanagan Knight TJ Dumonceaux on a partial breakaway late in the second period. Shortly after, he slid cross-crease to stop Connor Dempsey on a one-timer from the slot. Nikkel, who relieved Racine in the second period, came up with a similar save to deny Soleway his second goal after Zalewski fed his linemate a quick crossing pass for a one-timer. “The first 20 they were better than us, but through the next 40 minutes I thought it was a pretty good game,” said Warriors’ head coach Rylan Ferster, who is still getting to know his roster after taking over from Darren Yopyk in the offseason. “It was a good benchmark. Vernon had a lot of vets in, we had a lot of vets in. After this weekend we’ll have a better indication of where we’re at.” The Vipers visited the Merritt Centennials Saturday night at Nicola Valley Arena, and will be at Royal LePage Place to face Westside Tuesday night. SNAKE BITES: Logan Mick, a 1996-born forward and son of former Viper head coach/GM Troy Mick, suited up with Vernon Friday night... The North Okanagan Knights extended their KIJHL exhibition season win streak to three games with a 6-4 win over the Revelstoke Grizzlies Friday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong. The Knights doubled the Chase Chiefs 8-4 Wednesday at NorVal. They ended their preseason schedule Saturday in Revelstoke...The Victoria Grizzlies announced owner Len Barrie will be head coach for the coming season. Vic Gervais, last year’s bench boss, will stay on as an assistant. The team also introduced Rob Doyle as the team’s associate coach.

Excelsiors equalize in Mann Cup finals Black Press

Buoyed by the return of their top scorer and No. 1 goaltender, the Brampton Excelsiors evened up the Mann Cup series at one game apiece Thursday night at the Langley Events Centre. Dan Dawson had five assists, while Anthony Cosmo made 39 saves in Brampton’s 9-4 victory in Game 2 of the best-of-seven senior A lacrosse championship series. Dawson, Joe Walters (2+3) and Jarrett Davis

(2+2) did the bulk of the damage offensively for Brampton, who took control of the game with a dominant middle period, outscoring the Thunder 6-1. Vernon’s Brodie MacDonald made 30 stops for Langley. Game 3 went Saturday night, and Games 4 and 5 go tonight and Monday night respectively. If necessary, games six and seven would Sept. 14 and 15.

Vipers head to West camp GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

A sixpack of Vernon Vipers are among 24 B.C. Hockey Leaguers headed to Team Canada West’s training camp for the World Junior A Challenge. Defencemen Geoff Crisfield, Brett Corkey and Ryan Renz, along with forwards Marcus Basara, Aaron Hadley and Adam Tambellini will be at the five-day evaluation camp starting today in Canmore, Alta. The six-team tournament, featuring teams from Western and Eastern Canada, U.S., Czech Republic, Russia and Sweden, goes Nov. 7-13 in Langley. The 60 Canada West players will be divided into three teams – black, red and white – and will play a series of intra-squad games, in addition to daily practices. Tambellini, a rookie forward and son of Edmonton Oilers’ GM Steve Tambellini, was thrilled to learn of his camp invite. “It’s exciting, especially with me being a rookie. I’d never heard of it before and I just got the call the other day so I’m excited to go and see what it’s all about. Just to wear the jersey would be unbelievable. It’s a great opportunity any time you get the chance to wear the Canadian maple leaf on your chest,” he said. Added Basara, a second-year forward: “I’m looking forward to going to camp and giving myself the best chance to get on the team. It should be fun.” As returning Vipers, Basara, Corkey, Renz and Hadley are all too familiar with Canada West’s

head coach, having faced Kent Lewis’s Powell River Kings in the BCHL Fred Page Cup final last season (the two teams have met in each of the last three finals). Lewis stepped into the Canada West head coaching vacancy left by former Viper bench boss Mark Ferner after he departed to work with the WHL Everett Silvertips. “We knocked them (Kings) out of the playoffs, which was a cool series. It’ll be fun to go an meet him and the rest of the guys going to camp,” said Basara. Lewis assembled the camp roster with help from assistant coaches Dean Brockman (Humboldt Broncos, SJHL) and Andrew Milne (Canmore Eagles, AJHL). “There is a tremendous amount of talent to choose from in Western Canada, and we’re excited about the 60 players we’ve invited to camp,” said Lewis. “These players represent the best of Junior A hockey in the west and fans in Canmore are in for a treat when they take the ice.” The camp roster is comprised of six goaltenders, 18 defencemen and 36 forwards. After the BCHL, the next largest contingent comes from the AJHL (17). There are 10 players from the SJHL, five players from the MJHL and four players from the SIJHL. Craig Bokenfohr (Camrose Kodiaks), Rhett Holland (Okotoks Oilers), Sam Jardine (Camrose), and Travis St. Denis (Penticton Vees) are the only four returning players from the 2010 tourney.

Lloyd pulls hat trick to pump Kal Tire Morning Star Staff

Vernon Kal Tire rebounded from a shutout loss last week by icing Westside 8-0 in Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League action Thursday night at Marshal Field #2. Mike Lloyd scored the first of his three goals on a confident run, sliding the ball by the Westside keeper to open the offence. Mark DeVolder, taking a through ball from Lloyd and then beating two defenders, made it 2-0 before the intermission. In the second half, Jenne Huberts added to the score with a blast to the top left corner. Moments later, Huberts headed the ball to the far post off a long corner kick by Rob Parkin. Denis Chabot scored twice to finish off the 14-52 Kal Tire offensive.

In other 50+ action, the Vernon Silver Stars got back on the winning track with a 4-3 win over the host Kelowna Kickers. With striker Rob Ross watching from the sidelines with an ankle injury sustained early on, the Stars (8-10-3) played a solid game and capitalized on the few opportunities they had. Mike Siemens opened the scoring on a great rush down the left side, cracking a long, hard drive to catch the kelowna keeper off his line. Steve Coombs earned the Stars’ second goal and then set up their third tally on a great rush and pass to Ray Timms, who had the goal to himself for the tap in. Timms supplied the winner with a nice shot to the top right corner after a corner from Siemens.

If you have custody of your child or children, can you claim retroactive child support (i.e., past support) from the other parent? How far back can your claim go, and how much money can be claimed? These questions often trouble the courts, which must weigh many factors, such as hardship on the part of the payor to pay such back-reaching support, the delay in making the claim, the needs of the child, any increases in the payor’s earnings, the right of the child to share in such increase, and non-disclosure by the payor of earnings increases in the past. A recent case decided by the BC Court of Appeal sheds some light on the issues involved.

but she represented herself before the Court of Appeal (she was granted “indigent” or poor status). The Court of Appeal upheld her claim for retroactive child support for 2003, 2004 and 2005. Based on four previous Supreme Court of Canada decisions, the Court of Appeal noted that retroactive payments should normally only extend back to the three previous years, unless there was “blameworthy conduct” by the payor. The earliest starting date for retroactive support should be the date that notice of the claim was effectively given (in this case, 2001, when Ms. H first demanded an updated financial disclosure statement).

News The leader of the federal Green Party hopes to have a dozen Green MPs heading to Parliament after the next federal election. Elizabeth May was in the Okanagan last week, speaking to a capacity crowd at UBC Okanagan. While almost 80 supporters sampled a 100-kilometre buffet of local produce, May said, “We’ll grow our Greens the same way you grow local organic greens. We’ll grow local organic democracy. “People who cheered my electoral success are now supporting and joining the Green Party in ridings across the country.” Responding to a question, “What can one person do in Parliament?” May answered, “As I speak to Bills, propose amendments and present petitions that make sense, Canadians will see that Greens represent their values; that we have reasonable policies not just on the environment but on all issues. “By the next election, Canadians will want more Greens in Ottawa.” May proposes a Commission of Enquiry to examine current problems with the historic first-pastthe-post electoral system. It has been discarded in most western democracies, except the U.S. and Canada. “Canadians did not ask for a government elected by only 39 per cent of those who voted,” she said. “The Commission will examine why 40 per cent of Canadians don’t vote. It will assess how 61 per cent of those who do, don’t form the majority government. When Canadians understand the problem, they’ll demand a system of proportional representation that includes the wishes of everyone in the voting result.” May said her exclusion from the televised

VERNON BC

It was a day to celebrate cowboys and birthdays. Cowboy Norm Mansell got a one-of-akind 90th birthday gift Sept. 7. His son-in-law, Bob Diehl, who turned 60 Sept. 1, brought along his quarter horse, Ford Truck, who was 30 on Aug. 27, to Polson Extended Care in Vernon where Mansell now lives. Diehl was pleased to visit with Mansell and his old rodeo buddy, Tim Alexis, long-time owner of the Diamond T Ranch on Westside Road. “We won some buckles together,” said Diehl, who was wearing one of the rodeo buckles, along with full gear. “I said that one day I was going to bring my horse for a visit. I don’t know if they believed me but seemed like a good birthday present and something that everyone could enjoy. It’s great to see the guys out with their cowboy hats.” Many other Polson Extended Care residents, including bronc rider and rodeo clown, Jesse Rutt, were out in the sunny morning to see the horse. They reminisced about when many of them grew up on the farm with horses. “It’s a good present,” said Mansell, a cowboy and rancher who is originally from Saskatchewan.

Summer ends with trip to bountiful

T

oday feels like autumn. It was actually cool this morning with no fans or air conditioners going, only the cool fresh air blowing in the windows. Summer will soon be a fleeting memory as we don warmer clothes and those hated winter boots, but right now we have a beautiful fall beginning with the grass still green and the flowers blooming. The Vernon Farmers’ Market was full of people and produce this morning, again reminding us of the good fortune we have to live in such a bountiful valley. Other places – not so lucky. From hurricanes, tornadoes, to torrential rains and other disasters in the Middle East, each newscast competes with the next to proclaim the worst events. At least, here, we can go outside and look around us and see the beauty that surrounds us and feel safe as the world spins about. We should all take the time to celebrate. My last column dealt with my deciding to take an opioid analgesic (morphinebased prescription pain killer) to deal with the chronic pain I was experiencing. To my amazement about 25 people responded by phone or by email, one from as far away as Prince George. Each person had their story and most suffered from chronic pain and

was trying to find an answer to end this debilitating problem. A common theme was that they had talked to their doctor about their constant pain but their doctor didn’t really hear them or respond with any new viable solutions other than the over-thecounter pain relievers they were already taking. My advice was to try again to talk with their doctor telling him/her clearly how the pain was affecting their life and that they felt their concerns were not being heard. If that doesn’t work get a new doctor. There are nine physicians listed in Vernon who are taking on new Pat Black patients. You can find them on the College of Physicians and Surgeons website at cpsbc.ca. As I said in my original column, you must work with your doctor when taking these pills as they can be addictive and need monitoring. For myself, so far so good, I am on the lowest dosage and remain pain free. Another valuable resource is the Arthritis Self Management Course which begins next week in Vernon, This is a must for people with arthritis especially those who have chronic pain and the course will give the you tools to deal with this disease and make life better. Call the

PERSONAL BEST

Arthritis Society to sign up for the next one. Their number is 1-866-414-7766. The Seniors Action Network (SAN) starts meeting again Sept. 13 at People Place at 10 a.m. This network is made up of seniors and supporters including local and regional government reps. If you want your concerns to be heard, this is the place for you. All seniors are welcome and needed. Remember if we want to change things we have to get organized to do so. For more information call Dayle Drury at Seniors Information 250-545-8572. To celebrate the bounty of the Okanagan, the Food Action Society will host a great feast on Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Prestige Inn. The event includes a three-course meal catered by ORA chef Neil Porter, a cash bar and local celebrities vying for fame in a food quiz contest. The cost is $40 and the event starts at 6 p.m.. Tickets are available at the Prestige Inn, Bean Scene and the Vernon Farmers’ Market, or call Wendy at 250-542-6920. Sounds like a great finish to summer and a wonderful way to support this group that gives us so many worthwhile programs like the Good Food Box and Community Garden. See you there!

Lawn bowlers roll for United Way Morning Star Staff

Vernon Lawn Bowling Club’s resilient and hardy members are taking to the greens for a full 24 hours. Members get rolling in the second annual 24-Hour Bowl-A-Thon Sept. 17 in Polson Park to raise much needed funds for United Way of North OkanaganColumbia-Shuswap. “Participants in the relay-style event are gathering pledges from their friends, family and community members for United Way,� said Jeremy Woo, event organizer with the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club. They then will partake in the event by taking two-hour shifts at all hours of the day and night, with all of the players collectively lawn bowling for 24 consecutive hours. “In last year’s inaugural event, the players faced heavy downpour and cold temperatures from midnight until dawn in the name of charity,� said Woo, as members as young as 15 all the way up to 86 participated in the Bowl-A-Thon. Last year’s successful event raised well over $3,000 for Vernon’s local United Way chapter, and organizers are looking to increase that total in this year’s BowlA-Thon. The public is encouraged to stop by to watch

the lawn bowlers engage in exciting gameplay and to donate to the very unique event,

which begins at noon Sept. 17 and wraps up at noon on Sept. 18. For more informa-

tion or to donate to the campaign, email the club at vernonlbc@ gmail.com, call 250-

542-0212, or visit them during the event. “See you on the greens,� said Woo.

+VU[ -VYNL[ [OL <KKLY 6ULZ Many people are unaware of the best way to recycle milk, cream and milk substitute containers. Bringing them to the Return-It Depot guarantees they’ll be turned into something useful like cardboard boxes and tissue paper. So why not change your good habits. Return your milk containers with your refundable beverage containers. It’s easy. Quickly rinse them out and crush them. Remove any caps and bring them too, because they get recycled separately. There’s no refund on milk empties because there’s no deposit when you buy, but you’ll be doing the right thing. So on your next trip to Return-It, bring the udder ones too.

Families don’t have to search alone.

We’re here to help.

The search is currently on for the gutsiest Canadians. The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada is once again looking for the ‘Gutsiest’ Canadians. Seven people will be honoured in the month of November as CCFC celebrates Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Month.

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (UC) are two similar, yet distinct, conditions which directly affect the digestive system and cause intestinal tissue to become inflamed, form sores and bleed easily. There is no cure, no known cause, and little public understanding of the pain and chronic suffering which IBD patients courageously cope with

Blueberries make it better CATHI LITZENBERGER

In a small cup combine cornstarch and 2 tbsp. water; add to simmering liquid, stirring rapidly, continue cooking until dressing is thickened, about three minutes. In a large bowl, toss spinach and warm dressing. On four large plates, evenly divide spinach; sprinkle each with 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup tomatoes, 1/4 cup crumbled cheese, 1 tbsp. reserved bacon, and 1 chicken breast. Serve immediately.

wo weeks ago I promised more on blueberries and today’s feature is just that. We’ve already covered many of the amazing health attributes of these berries and today you’ll learn a few more. For instance a serving of blueberries is only 80 calories, has no fat, and is packed with vitamin C and fibre. In fact, just a handful of blueberries will meet our daily requirement of fibre. Blueberries are an excellent source of manganese, which is essential for bone development and for converting proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in food into energy. Blueberries are leaders in antioxidant properties of any fruit, which is so important in preventing disease, and with B.C. being a world leader in blueberry production, we are fortunate to have a fresh, excellent supply of this amazing fruit. Today’s recipes include a delicious stuffed french toast, a blueberry spinach salad, and, since peaches are also in season, I’ve combined blueberries and peaches in a smoothie and muffin recipe. Both are excellent for breakfast or a snack. Blueberry Stuffed French Toast Cooking spray 6 eggs 1 tsp. finely grated orange zest 2/3 cup orange juice 3 tbsp. sugar, divided Pinch salt, optional 1 cup fresh blueberries (if frozen, thaw and drain first) 8 thick (3/4-to-1-inch) slices French or Italian white bread 1 pkg. softened cream cheese (4 oz) 1/3 cup sliced almonds (optional) Blueberry sauce (recipe below) Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. In a medium bowl beat eggs, orange zest, juice, 2 tbsp. sugar and the salt until well blended. Pour into a 13-by-9-by-2-inch baking pan; set aside.

Fill muffin cups with batter; two-thirds full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in preheated oven, or until tops spring back when lightly touched.

Strong Points RHONDA CATT Special to The Morning Star

I

recently returned from an international strength and conditioning conference in California, The Perform Better Summit. I always get 100 per cent fired up during these conferences and this was one of the best due to so many of the best minds in the industry in one place, and I came home inspired more than ever! Each presenter was topnotch but one left a lasting impression. I was lucky to attend a lecture from Brian Grasso regarding “Long term sports training for youth.” As a mother of two young boys it has always been my focus to keep my children healthy and active as much as possible and let them experience a variety of activities and what they enjoy. I have always encouraged parents to let their children experience “play” and not focus on one sport at a young age. The more the child plays in a variety of activities, the better they become. Have you ever thought why it’s so important to let your child play and let them experi-

adults who work with children have become too busy or scared to let our youth know they are our future and show them how amazing they are. Another important point that Grasso made during the lecture was a reminder to me and sparked my goal with this article. Multiple research in non-competitive movement (play) since 1967 shows an increase in academic improvement in youth. Basically, our kids are smarter when they move. I believe we all know that or I had always hoped so. Hearing that reminder lit a fire PHOTO SUBMITTED under my butt and a finger up Linden Catt and Grayson Bell enjoy a fun water gun fight in the summer to the system.

This year is the International Year of the Forests, and to celebrate the Sustainable Environment Network Society (SENS) is organizing a panel to examine Vernon’s “amenity’ landscape in light of local forest planning strategies for the next 50 years. The event, taking place Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Schubert Centre, will feature panel member Dr. Romella Glorioso. She will lead the discussion on the negative impacts of amenity migration, and answer questions on how we manage our forests when people migrate to live in smaller communities because of amenities offered, and how peak oil and climate change fit in.

SENS hosts panel

AM / PM Classes

My dog vomits often. What could cause that?

Vomiting (emesis) has a very long list of possible causes. In dogs, the issue will usually revolve around “things eaten”. Dietary indiscretion, where inedible, spoiled or simply ‘wrong’ things are ingested, perhaps as a result of boredom, anxiety/stress or misguided culinary experimentation (by dog or owner), is a common diagnosis. Quick diet changes, eating too fast, or intolerance to certain foods, even medications may cause vomiting, often with diarrhea. Many of these cases will resolve if a more sensible approach to feeding (quality and quantity) is taken. Disorders of the stomach or small intestines are more serious causes of emesis and may develop into emergencies. Examples include obstructions due to foreign bodies (toys, stones) or twists (bloat), tumours, parasites, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and more. Metabolic conditions such as liver or kidney disease, heat stroke, Addison’s may all cause emesis, as may motion sickness, pancreatitis, infections (Parvovirus!), histamine release from wasp or bee stings, and many others. If vomiting persists or comes with blood, fever, breathing difficulty, depression or abdominal distension, be sure to get veterinary help fast. — Herbert Mehl, DVM

Appraisers to uncover treasures at art gallery Morning Star Staff

It could be a gilt-framed oil portrait that has been passed down in the family, or perhaps a soft pastel landscape neglected on the wall, but to Peter Blundell and Anthony Westbridge, there could be treasures out there worth their weight in gold. Westbridge of Westbridge Fine Arts in Vancouver has been invited by Blundell, a Vernon art and antiques appraiser, to join him in the Heirloom Discovery Day at the Vernon Public Art Gallery, Oct. 5. Westbridge will be performing verbal opinions of value on art with a view of taking some paintings down to Vancouver for inclusion in one of his regular live and online auctions held on a monthly schedule. Blundell will also be performing verbal opinions of value mostly on antiques and collectables. He will conduct 15 minute interviews with each person who books an appointment throughout the day. “You should be prepared to see either of these experts, or both, it will be your choice.” said Kelly McIntosh, the new curatorial assistant at the VPAG. Westbridge is one of Canada’s leading art experts. He is the publisher of The Collector’s Dictionary of Canadian Artists at Auction and The Canadian Art Sales Index, now in its 25th year. Westbridge will assess all kinds of art pieces, but says he is particularly interested in Canadian-made paintings and sculpture, and is looking forward to coming to the Okanagan and seeing what locals will present to him. “Some of Westbridge’s books will be available for sale on the day,” said McIntosh.

Antique appraiser Peter Blundell, left, and art expert Anthony Westbridge discuss a masterwork by artist Mildred Valley Thornton. The two men are conducting the Heirloom Discovery Day at the Vernon Public Art Gallery Oct. 5. Blundell will tackle the antiques that are brought his way, and is prepared to assess most items except jewelry, coins, stamps, guns and wristwatches, however, pocket watches and swords will be accepted. The public is asked to bring in items no

more than 400 years old. “If you have a large piece of furniture, you can bring a drawer and a picture with measurements. This will give Peter a good idea of the wood and where in the world it came from,” said McIntosh.

Up to three items are permitted per 15-minute booking, and cost for an appointment is $35, with part proceeds going to the Vernon Public Art Gallery. To make an appointment, visit or call the gallery at 250-545-3173.

Locally made TV pilot gets premiere screening in Vernon Cast and crew on hand to screen award-winning Gothic drama Morning Star Staff

An award-winning TV pilot that was primarily shot in the Lavington area is making its premiere at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Sept. 24. The special one-night screening of La Fontaine, produced by McLink Enterprises Ltd., in association with TechYou Digital Media, is just one of the many events the pilot’s makers have been exposed to since filming began. “We’ve been getting lots of calls about where the show is headed and how we’d like to move forward. It’s a very exciting time,” said the show’s creator, writer, and director M.F. (Matt) McDowell, adding the producers hope to develop La Fontaine into an Okanagan-based television series that will have a long and profitable run on TV and media’s

culture of genetic manipulation (natural and unnatural), production on La Fontaine began in the spring of 2010 and boasts an

entirely Okanagan cast and crew. Principal photography was shot in the Lavington and Vernon areas of the North Okanagan,

with secondary photography in Kelowna and Lake Country. Since being produced as a spec pilot, La Fontaine has won Best Drama Pilot at the 2011 Banff World Media Festival, and was more recently nominated for Best Drama and Best Writer at the ITV Fest in Los Angeles. Winning such a prestigious award at the Banff World Media Festival, described as the “Olympics of Television” was something of a shock for McDowell, an L.A. filmmaker who now calls the North Okanagan home. “Winning the Best Drama Pilot in an international competition was great,” he said. “My heart was pounding. Cameron Gordon, the lead in La Fontaine, was there to share the win and we were both going crazy.” The Sept. 24 screening is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and many members of the cast and crew, including McDowell, will be on hand at the event. Admission to the screening at the Performing Arts Centre is by donation.

Books will a-maze Continued from page B7 –– Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman. In 1905 in Berne, Switzerland, Albert Einstein is on the cusp of developing his theory of relativity, and he is working out the kinks in his dreams. Lightman’s novel is a collection of these Einstein’s dreams, each of Dreams which dramatizes the unusual passage of time. In one dream, time runs backward; in another, time is gained by moving more quickly. In this tangled world, time behaves in unexpected ways, and the world is

shaped accordingly. There is no predicting how things “ought to be.” –– Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. When Richard Mayhew plays the Good Samaritan, stopping to help Door, a threatened rag girl, he falls through the cracks from London Above to London Below – a maze of tunnels, hidden passageways, and dead ends where time Neverwhere has no meaning. In this dark underworld, Richard questions the reality of his own existence and wonders if he will ever find his way again to London Above. –– Parts of this column originally appeared in Library Journal.

for advice. The message about the dangers of high blood pressure is getting through to Canadians. We have one of the lowest average blood pressures in the world and because of this deaths from heart attacks are greatly reduced. The “normal” blood pressure used to be 120/80. Now, doctors are preferring 115/75 as the goal. To combat obesity in American society, the U.S. government has come up with a better way to visualize food quantities. One cup equals the size of a baseball. One serving is the size of a deck of cards. A computer mouse equals a medium potato while one pancake is the size of a CD. These common-placed items hopefully will help people reduce their food intake and lose weight. New drugs are often discovered from natural products. An Asian tropical plant, the pinwheel flower, contains conolidine, a natural pain reliever. Unfortunately the shrub contains so little of the drug that scientist have synthesized the same chemical in the lab. It represents a whole new class of pain killers and shows much promise in the future treatment of intense pain. If it is new, we’ll know about it. Keeping up-to-date in our profession is our #1 goal.

Fehr alleviates fears over economy GRAEME CORBETT Business Editor

As he talked to a crowd of concerned investors Wednesday morning, Craig Fehr likened the economic landslide of 2008 to a movie. A very bad movie. Fehr, a St. Louis-based financial services equity analyst with Edward Jones, was the guest speaker at a seminar at the Vernon Golf & Country Club, lending his investing insight to the group of 70 in attendance. “2008 is all too fresh in investors’ memories. We’ve seen the movie and the ending was pretty lousy in ‘08. People don’t want to sit through the movie again this time to see how it ends,” said Fehr. “You typically see that in investors; they have short memories, but very vivid memories of what most recently happened to them.” With U.S. and European debt troubles making major headlines, combined with a general slowdown in the global economy, Fehr says it is understandable that investors are being cautious with their money. However, he also sees differences in what is happening now and what went down in 2008. For starters, Fehr noted the Canadian unemployment rate has steadily declined to 7.2 per cent from a two-year high 8.7 per cent in September 2009. Fehr also said non-financial North American corporations are holding $1.9 trillion on their books, meaning about 13 per cent of their net worth is in cash. That allows them more flexibility to operate more freely in a period of slow growth, which in turn helps stimulate the economy, he said. “Some of the fundamentals that were deteriorating in ‘08 are improving now... slowly, but they are improving,” said Fehr, who will tour Salmon Arm, Kamloops, Penticton, Osoyoos and Kelowna during his Okanagan visit. “It’s important to keep the right perspective on things and managing things you can control, which are your emotions. We can’t control what’s going on around the world.”

GRAEME CORBETT/MORNING STAR

Craig Fehr, a financial services equity analyst with Edward Jones, talks to a crowded room about investment opportunities in the current economic climate during a Wednesday morning seminar at the Vernon Golf & Country Club. And while slower than many had hoped, economic growth is expected to be positive, albeit bumpy, in 2011. Fehr, who has been with Edward Jones since 2002, said the economy moves more like a dump truck, and less like the Lamborghini investors want it to be. “It’s slow, it’s sluggish and once it gets moving in one direction it’s difficult to change it. It doesn’t handle corners very well, but it’s pretty reliable and it usually gets you where you want to go.”

With stock prices dropping and investors hesitant about getting back into the market, Fehr says there are solid long-term opportunities for those daring enough to get back in the game. And despite the bleak picture painted by the current state of affairs, he doesn’t believe the financial landscape is as bad as it is made out to be. “What we’re seeing is a disconnect. We’re seeing the market react to something it feels is really severe, when in reality the economic picture we’re looking at... is

just kind of slow and frustrating, but not severely negative. “When you get that disconnect between investment prices and the economic reality, it tends to be an opportunity to buy quality investments,” he said. “It’s about making smart decisions on a longer-term time frame. If you take a longer view of things and say ‘What’s going to happen over the next three, five or 10 years?’ the picture is much brighter and it creates an opportunity for investors.”

Canadian youth preparing to head out on their own now have an online tool to help them understand the financial decisions they will face. The City, a financial life skills resource designed to prepare students for financial management, is a free web-based program developed by the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) and the B.C. Securities Commission (BCSC). It was based on the award-winning program developed by the BCSC that has been adapted for all Canadian provinces and territories.

Special To The Morning Star

WALES - North Wales – a Celtic land of craggy mountains and deep mines, mediaeval castles and landscaped gardens. My husband and I began our oneweek adventure from the walled city of Chester which abuts the English/Welsh border. Drawn by its rural ambience, we sojourned in the little town of Llangollen which nestles in a deep mountain valley carved out by the River Dee. We wandered across its Gothic bridge and indulged in a poke of hot off-the-griddle Welsh cakes. From the nearby wharf we watched families taking horse-drawn narrow boat trips along the Llangollen Canal. That evening, as an anniversary surprise, I had purchased tickets for a medieval banquet in nearby Ruthin Castle. On arrival, we were greeted by the guttural call of peacocks that pranced and shimmied around the castle gardens. Minutes later, we were ushered into the medieval banqueting hall where the townspeople don costumes and welcome today’s modern pilgrims. With bibs tucked under our chins, a goblet of mead and a dagger in our hands, we dined to the accompaniment of a melodic Welsh choir and harpist. Our ‘removes’ otherwise known as ‘courses’ included Welsh lamb and a syllabub of fruit, cream and wine. On departure, to our chagrin we discovered the heavens had opened and within ten minutes of driving, we were utterly lost. However, there is an angel around every corner and ours turned out to be the local police who were hiding behind a high hedge on the lookout for speedsters. Standing with my soggy map, I asked for directions back to Llangollen. The

En route, I was intrigued by a sign pointing to a Roman Spa, Trefriw Wells. Reputed to have been discovered by soldiers of the XXth Roman Legion, our self-guided tour took us to the Victorian Pump Room where I partook of the iron-rich waters from inside a golden stalactite-studded cavern. Later, we sojourned in magnificent Bodnant Garden situated above the River Conwy. Truly balm unto the soul, the 87-acre site boasts formal terraced gardens and water features. A highlight for me was a saunter through the 160-foot long flowering laburnum tunnel. By evening, we had reached the coastal town of Llandudno. Dubbed the Queen of Welsh resorts, this town was designed by the Victorians and curves between the twin limestone headlands of Great and Little Orme. For a bird’s eye view, we joined the locals and took the century-old tramway on a mile-long climb up to the summit of the Great Orme. The area is a nature reserve crisscrossed by

marked trails frequented by elusive Kashmiri wild goats. Following the bilingual road signs, we drove southwest to the harbor town of Porthmadog. En route, we visited the Llechwedd Slate Caverns and hopped on the last 45-minute underground tour. We donned our hard hats and climbed aboard a covered tramway which took us along an extensive network of tunnels and hand-hewn caverns. As the damp cold enveloped us, we learned of the hard and

dangerous life endured by the miners. “This,� wrote one 12-year old miner in 1856, “was the hell the preacher talked about in church� The taped narrative punctuated with harp music and backed by a male-voice choir needed no Disneyland embellishment. As the evening sun dipped behind surrounding slag heaps, we left the cosy Miners Pub and continued on to Porthmadog. Situated in acres of grasslands and estuarine mudflats, this town is a

popular destination for train spotters who can take a narrow-gage train journey or just enjoy the action at the Welsh Highland Railway and Ffestiniog stations. Before leaving Wales, I wanted to visit the seaside town of Criccieth where I had spent a memorable childhood holiday. I knocked on the door of the house our family had once rented and the owner graciously gave us a tour. Little had changed in half a century. Blessed with a sweeping sand and shingle

beach, Criccieth’s shore was dotted with families sheltering behind colorful striped windbreaks, while the more sedate dallied in popular tearooms. Standing on the promontory near 13th century Criccieth Castle, I pondered on the words of Percy Shelley who in 1812 wrote, “Steal, if possible, my revered friend, one summer and come to Wales.� It was good advice.

Smoking rate drops in B.C. Morning Star Staff

B.C. has the lowest smoking rate in Canada for the 12th year in a row at 14.3 per cent, says the 2010 Canadian Tobacco Use Monitoring Survey B.C.’s overall smoking rate fell to 14.3 per cent in 2010 from 14.9 per cent in 2009, according to the CTUMS. Overall in Canada, smoking rates are 17 per cent. Ontario has the second-lowest rate at 15 per cent, with Saskatchewan the highest at 21 per cent. Most positively, B.C.’s smoking rate for youth aged 15 to 19 years decreased from 13 per cent in 2009 to 8.9 per cent in 2010. This is the lowest rate achieved since 1999. The national rate is 12 per cent. In addition, B.C.’s smoking rate for 25-to44-year-old current smokers decreased from 21 per cent in 2009 to 16 percent in 2010. Similarly, the rate for daily smokers aged 25 to 44 went from 18.5 per cent in 2009 to 11 per cent. “I am very pleased to see that B.C. continues to have the lowest smoking rates in the country. It is just one more example of why British Columbia is the healthiest jurisdiction in Canada,” said Health Minister Michael de Jong. Despite having the lowest rate in the coun-

try, smoking still causes significant illness and death in B.C. Each year, more than 6,000 British Columbians die from tobacco use. The cost to the B.C. economy is approximately $2.3 billion annually, including

more than $605 million for direct health-care costs. To help further reduce smoking rates in B.C., the province has announced PharmaCare coverage of prescription smoking cessation

drugs and 100 per cent coverage of eligible nicotine gum or patches for smokers who wish to quit. This program will begin Sept. 30 and more details will become available in the coming weeks.

Wednesday, September 14, 2011 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. District of Coldstream Municipal Hall 9901 Kalamalka Road

The purpose of the open house is to solicit feedback from the residents of Coldstream on the proposed Town Centre Mixed Use Zone. The zone has been prepared in accordance with the principles outlined within the Central Coldstream Neighbourhood Plan, a copy of which is available on the District’s website at www.districtofcoldstream.ca, or at the Coldstream Municipal Hall.

Independent power producers, a climate scientist and an advocate for aboriginal development urged the B.C. government Wednesday to stick with B.C.’s plan to become self-sufficient in clean energy. B.C.’s goal of eliminating power imports by 2016 was questioned by a panel of senior officials who reviewed BC Hydro operations this summer and recommended ways to slow rate increases. Power producers say this short-term cost cutting would push BC Hydro to import more electricity at spot market rates that BC Hydro is predicting to soar in the years John Horgan to come. And they argue that the review panel used an “allin estimated cost� for independent power that includes power line extensions and the cost of converting intermittent power to firm, long-term supply. In an “apples to apples� comparison, independent producers match or beat the price of new power sources developed by BC Hydro, said Paul Kariya, executive director of the Clean Energy Association of B.C. Judith Sayers, former chief the the Hupacasath First Nation on Vancouver Island, said small runof-river development helped her community to learn business as well as gain a steady income and a clean electricity source. There are now 125 B.C. aboriginal communities involved with clean energy projects, she said. “It’s important to first nations because we need to get involved in development that’s consistent with our values,� Sayers said. Andrew Weaver, Canada Research Chair in Climate Modelling at the University of Victoria, said B.C. is risking its leadership role in clean energy. It should be looking beyond self-sufficiency to what is really needed to meet the province’s goal of a one-third reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, which means innovations like widespread use of electric cars, he said. BC Hydro uses a series of drought years from the 1940s as its “critical water� benchmark for selfsufficiency, but Weaver said that measure is losing accuracy because of greenhouse gas accumulation. “What we expect to see is an increased likelihood of overall water, but it’s coming in the winter, in increasingly extreme events, with an increased likelihood of drought in the summer,� Weaver said. Graham Horn, vice-president of Innergex Renewable Energy, said his company is considering making B.C. the base for its North and South American clean energy operations, based on its

progressive policies. Montreal-based Innergex operates the Ashlu Creek and Fitzsimmons Creek run-of-river projects near Whistler, and recently completed a group of projects at the north end of Harrison Lake. NDP energy critic John Horgan said BC Hydro should not be paying to connect independent power projects to the grid, unless it is to help a remote community get off diesel generators. And it shouldn’t use its large dam capacity to shape intermittent power so private companies can benefit. “A public utility is not supposed to improve the bottom line for shareholders, and that’s the fundamental flaw in the IPP policies of the B.C. Liberals,� Horgan said.

Heavy loads a concern Morning Star Staff

B.C.’s physiotherapists want to help everyone get back to school and work injury free. Now that the annual trek back to school and work has begun, the Physiotherapy Association of B.C. has put together a few tips to prevent pain or injury when carrying a heavy load to and from work or when selecting a backpack for your child. “We can all use a reminder about how to lift and carry heavy loads,” said Rebecca Tunnacliffe, CEO of the Physiotherapy Association of BC. “Carrying a backpack, heavy purse or luggage can, overtime, cause neck and shoulder strain. By following our Physio-4 Tips for Carrying you can reduce your chance for injury.” 1. Split the load. Divide groceries into two lighter bags to distribute the weight more evenly. If carrying just one bag, alternate sides. Always carrying a bag, purse or briefcase on one side can put strain on your neck, shoulder and lower back – switch it up. 2. Fit your backpack. Choose a pack with two padded straps and a chest or waist belt to provide adequate support. Tighten the straps so the pack fits against your upper back and the waist belt is snugly fastened around your hips. Place heavier items in the center and close to your back. 3. Keeping it close lightens the load. Carry a purse with a strap diagonally across your body, messenger style to distribute the weight more evenly. This will encourage a more efficient posture. Your physiotherapist can show you how to improve posture and keep you pain free. 4. Push rather than pull luggage. The new all directional wheels make it even easier to maneuver. Keep your feet close to the luggage to maintain a more upright body position and minimize strain. The Physiotherapy Association of B.C. created the Physio-4 to share the expertise of its members with fellow British Columbians. “Each month, on our website (movingforlife.ca), we provide four tips for a specific activity or health issue relating to that month to help keep British Columbians moving for life,” said Tunnacliffe. “We want British Columbians to know that if they are injured or in pain, a physiotherapist can help. After all, we are the healthcare professionals physicians recommend most.” The Physio-4 Tips for Carrying provides suggestions to keep British Columbians pain and injury free. Starting this month, British Columbians injured on the job will have direct access to physiotherapy treatments. WorkSafeBC has agreed that patients no longer

Several brand-new ways to generate additional earnings may be in the making for you in the year ahead, if you dig a little. Your treasure hunt might take you to places or areas where fortune never smiled on you previously.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The chances that nice things could happen to you will increase considerably. If you rarely get out to see people, do what you can to circulate as much as possible.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Even if it’s an unheard-of occurrence, for some reason you should find yourself quite relaxed when involved in a partnership situation. You’ll find the perfect person with whom you’ll share much in common.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Don’t be afraid to strive for objectives that might test your capabilities and talents. The harder you try to climb the ladder of success, the luckier you are likely to get.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) An old project that was going nowhere can be resurrected and made meaningful at this time. You’ll do so with a little dab of ingenuity here and a touch of elbow grease there. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Achieving social acceptance isn’t likely to be a problem for you. Your strong, charismatic personality will emerge and function like a magnet, drawing everyone to you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You are likely to have an accurate grasp of most situations, whether they are social or commercial in nature. If you have any thoughts on how to handle your affairs, put them to the test. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Something of a profitable nature can be developed, generating additional income from something other than your usual source. Diligently search for new, lucrative venues.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Keep your lines of communication open to as many people as possible. Good news could be on its way pertaining to something that might be tremendously significant. ARIES (March 21-April 19) People in general are likely to treat you in a very generous fashion. One might even be somebody whom you didn’t think gave a hoot about you or your welfare.

Moderately Confused

••••••••

Bridge by Phillip Alder More an unblock than a spot Inigo DeLeon said, “The cure for writer’s cramp is writer’s block.” Today, though, surely that should be, “The cure for carpal tunnel syndrome is typist’s block.” We have been looking at deals in which keeping an eye on the critical spotcards has been important. Whenever I do a class on that subject, I usually end with this deal. It is not really a spot-card problem -- more spotting the way around a roadblock. Well, how would you try to make seven spades after West leads the club jack? As regular readers will know, I am not a fan of the two-diamond “waiting” response to two clubs.

I believe the responder should make a positive response with eight-plus points to tell partner that it is a slam deal (unless the hands fit poorly). Here, though, North had such a strong hand that he knew he could take charge after he discovered South’s hand-type. When South rebid two spades, guaranteeing at least five spades and promising nine-plus winners, North launched into Blackwood before settling his side into seven spades. (Yes, seven no-trump would have been safer.) You seem to have 13 tricks: five spades, three hearts, two diamonds and three clubs. But how do you get them all with no dummy entry left? If you only held a spade lower

than the 10. There is a way that just requires reasonable breaks in clubs and hearts. First, take all three of dummy’s club winners, discarding your ace and king of hearts! Then, cash dummy’s three heart tricks, pitching your three diamond losers. Finally, draw trumps and claim.

He joined the Army in 1939 and then the RCAF where he was stationed in England until his honourable discharge on October 2, 1945. In 1950 he went to work with the BC Ministry of Transportation and Highways until his retirement in 1982, at which time he and Margaret retired to Grand Forks. A special thank you to Win Blanchard who took such good care, first of Mom and then of Dad, more than a caregiver, a true friend. Bless you Win. Dad’s favourite things were Margaret, canoeing, pancakes and a cold beer after a long paddle on Christina Lake (and not necessarily in that order!). Paddle on Dad, paddle on.

Else Kristiane Jensen

It is with great sadness we announce that on August 15th, 2011 our beloved mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother, Else Jensen passed away in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 95 years.

Else was born in Copenhagen, Denmark on February 19th, 1916 where she grew up and learned many different skills. She was extremely gifted with her hands and held several jobs as a leader in various industries. Else was a professional shoemaker, seamstress and a devoted mother to her three children, Jens, Anne and Lene. In 1943 her husband Jan joined the Danish Liberation Brigade in Sweden. In 1944 Else escaped the occupied Denmark across the ocean to Sweden in a small fishing boat with two small children, to be with her husband. When the war ended in 1945 they returned to Denmark, where their third child Lene was born. Else also leaves to cherish her memory eight grandchildren and twenty one great-grandchildren. In 1967 Jan & Else decided to join their daughter Anne and her husband John Kyrstein in Toronto, Ontario. In 1980 Anne & John moved to Mackenzie, B.C. Else & Jan, now retired, would again join Anne & John in Mackenzie where they enjoyed retirement until Jan died in 1994. Else remained with Anne & John as they left Mackenzie and moved to Prince George, B.C. Here they remained until 2006 when Else, Anne & John moved to Vernon so they could all enjoy their retirement years together. Else loved her last years spent among friends and would never say no to a game of cards, a trip to the Casino or a game of Bingo. She loved family, friends and life. Else could always find the good in people and she will be forever in the hearts of those she loved. Cremation preceded the Funeral Service which will be held at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Saturday, September 17th, 2011 at 1:00 P.M. with Pastor Richard D. Schulz officiating. Placement of Else’s cremated remains will follow in the Bethel Rose Garden Of Remembrance. Immediately following the committal service family and friends are invited to a Reception in the Bethel Tea Room. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Else to the charity of their choice. Funeral arrangements have been made with BETHEL FUNERAL CHAPEL LTD., 5605-27th Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 8Z5 250-542-1187

SAUNDERS, Flinda Mary It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Flinda Mary Saunders who lost her brief battle with a malignant brain tumor on September 1st, 2011. Flinda is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, Frank; her children Christopher and Jennifer, and her younger brother, Bill. Flinda was a devoted wife and mother and was the number one fan for her kids and husband. She always put them first and was so very proud of her family. After growing up in Peterborough, Flinda moved to Toronto and began a secretarial career at the Globe and Mail. It was in Toronto at the Globe and Mail that she met and fell in love with Frank, married and started a family. Flinda settled in Vernon with her family in 1978. She spent many years working for the Vernon Irrigation District, followed by the Regional District, retiring in 2001. Flinda revelled in her retirement years. She was often heard to say, “I don’t know how I ever had time to work”. Her retirement was joyfully spent volunteering for many organizations including the Vernon Art Gallery and the Schubert Center, of which she served on the board for many years. She was happily involved in two Red Hat Chapters; the Silver Star Chapter of which she was a founding member, and the Schubert Red Hat Chapter. She fondly looked forward to her many social engagements with her Red Hatters, her book club, Probus, Schubert Center, bridge nights, as well as her annual trips with her husband to Victoria and Portland, Oregon to visit her children. Through her charm, and joie de vivre, Flinda touched many lives. Please join us in a celebration of her life. A Funeral Mass will take place on Monday, September 19th at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church on Middleton Drive at 1:00 pm, with a reception to follow in the Schubert Center at 3 pm.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our beloved Charles (Chuck) Kingsford AbboƩ. Deeply respected by his family, Dad leaves us with the legacy of his love. He lived for his children and grandchildren and would oŌen be seen on the sidelines of a soccer game or in the stands at a performance or celebraƟon cheering. Dad was our number one fan and we loved sharing our lives with him. An avid hunter and Įsherman, Dad had a deep respect for nature and the outdoors. He spent many hours hunƟng in the mountains around Golden, Radium, and Vernon. He was an accurate marksman and was a strong advocate of the fair hunt. Dad loved ocean Įshing on the West Coast. Generous to a fault he loved to share his catch, or anything else he had, with family and companions. He took great joy in his many friendships and always looked forward to meeƟng up with his Įshing and hunƟng buddies out on the trail, sharing a meal, a good story or a hand of cards. Dad had a special bond with all his animals and especially his dogs Princess and Shelby. The love shared was evident in the respect and care he showed for them and in the loyal companionship they gave back. A man of strong principles and values, Dad taught his children and grandchildren by sharing his life experiences. Raised in the dirty thirƟes Dad learned and then taught us to give our best always, to do more than what is expected and to be proud of a job well done. Although he lived with a disability Dad courageously refused to let this stop him. Like so many of his generaƟon, he could Įx almost anything and if he decided to do something…he did it! He was a man of great integrity and generosity, a man who championed the underdog. He was the kind of man who would give the shirt oī his back. His example enriched our lives. Dad leaves behind his loving family, wife Pat of 40 years; 4 children, sons Robert and Jeī AbboƩ(Lisa) and daughters Dee Anne LeCerf(Doug) and Frances Franson (Terry); grandchildren Danielle Berresford (Steve) and Heather LeCerf, Natalie, Lindsay, Dylan and Logan AbboƩ, Alisha and Robin Franson, and ChrisƟne and Robert AbboƩ; great grandchildren Thomas and Isabelle Berresford; sister and brother in-law Bev and Ernie Lakey; nieces Robin, Linda, Steven, Darryl and Geoī, his sister in-law Joyce Woods … and many wonderful friends! Dad was predeceased by his mom and dad, Dorothy and Arthur his brothers Robert AbboƩ and Tommy Woods and his niece Karen Lakey. Dad’s CelebraƟon of Life service will take place at the Pleasant Valley Funeral Home in Vernon on Friday, September 16 beginning at 1:30pm.

was born on February 4th, 1917 in Kingswood, England and passed away on September 4th, 2011 in Enderby, B.C. at the age of 94 years. Mike came to Canada in 1939, working first at Timmons, Ontario. He served with the 6th Field Company, Royal Canadian Engineers, in France, Germany and Holland. From 1945 until his retirement he worked as a surveyor and engineer on a variety of railway construction jobs throughout Canada, as well as three in Africa. His retirement years allowed Mike to participate in a sport he grew to love – golf! His continuing skill took him to the Masters Summer Games. When he was 91 he fell and broke his hip, having just returned home after golfing with friends. Mike lived in Armstrong and Vernon prior to calling Oakside Manor his home in Enderby where he has lived since 2007. Mike was a gentle man and a gentleman in every situation. He strived for excellence and gave his best in everything he did. He loved to read and his keen mind and brilliant memory allowed him to converse on many subjects with accurate historical detail.
