Greenpeace founder calls Vernon home JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
name that, for the past 40 years, has represented efforts to establish a green and peaceful future, is actually thanks to a Vernon man. Greenpeace was born on Sept. 15, 1971 in Vancouver – nearly 40 years ago to the day. The small group of activists, historically known as the Don’t Make A Wave Committee, included Bill Darnell, who is now a Vernon resident. The name was unearthed during a meeting where the group discussed plans to set sail to Amchitka in protest of the U.S. government testing nuclear war heads. When member Irving Stowe left the meeting he flashed his custom ‘V’ sign with his fingers and said “Peace.” Although he rarely said much at the meetings, Darnell suddenly spoke up: “Make it a green peace.” Those two magical words did not leave Stowe’s mind, and other members felt the name fused together two of the most urgent movements. Another member, a journalist, added that Greenpeace would fit better in a headline than the Don’t Make a Wave Committee. While others began to name the Amchitka-destined ship Greenpeace. The name stuck, and 40 years later the group has grown to become the world’s largest, independent environmental organization. When he looks back on their historic six-week voyage to Amchitka, Darnell

We didn’t know what was going to happen and we weren’t sailors, we were mostly throwing up,” said Darnell, who was the cook of the ship, so when he was sick everyone ate peanut butter sandwiches. Even though the illstomached crew was not successful in reaching their destination, their efforts became wildly known and reported in the media. Protests began to pop up around B.C. In Vancouver, 10,000 students
JENNIFER SMITH/MORNING STAR
Bill Darnell, of Vernon, looks back on some of the initial Greenpeace accomplishments from 40 years ago when he was a charter member of the organization. walked Georgia Street to the U.S. consulate. Even Vernon youth were
inspired to rally and hundreds turned out at 30th Ave. and 32nd St. to blast
Amchitka (reported in the Nov. 4, 1971 edition of the Vernon News). “So we really touched a chord with people,” said 65-year-old Darnell. “What we were doing gave permission and encouragement for people to do what they need to in their community. “We kind of inspired them, maybe unleashed them.” Darnell moved to Vernon in 1997 and has taught at alternative programs such as Open Door, Six Mile and Crossroads. Although he is now retired he still tutors and makes Greenpeace presentations at schools. He is also
involved in a local group, called Vernon in Transition, aimed at connecting different groups (from the Ribbons of Green Trail Society to the Food Action Society) and making positive changes where needed. He is impressed with the youth of today, as well as those who were inspired enough to stand up back in 1971. While we no longer have to protest nuclear war head testing, Darnell says, more substantial efforts are needed today – to fight climate change. “It’s a more difficult thing to wrestle with. It’s not them and us, it’s us. We can’t point fingers...we have to change.” Sitting in his small, green-themed home featuring wheat cabinets, zero carpets or vinyl (which release toxic gases), recycled materials and a green roof, Darnell is a living example of change. From his home to his transportation (he bikes almost everywhere), he tries his best to make the necessary choices to reduce greenhouse gases. And while not everyone has adopted the same green habits, he is optimistic that the trend will catch on as more people turn off their blinders to the situation of climate change. Darnell is currently in Vancouver as the city proclaims Sept. 15 Greenpeace Day and members, young and old, celebrate the past 40 years of accomplishments. There will also be a Rainbow Warrior Festival at Vancouver’s Jericho Beach Saturday to mark the occasion.

News Hotel unveils plans for city
RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Development of a new hotel is expected to have significant spin-offs for Vernonâ€™s economy. Construction is expected to begin soon on a four-storey, 98-room Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott on Anderson Way, with it open by fall 2012. â€œIt shows confidence in our market,â€? said Kevin Poole, the cityâ€™s economic development manager. The $10 million project will create up to 75 construction jobs and 25 fulltime positions once the hotel is open. Itâ€™s anticipated that 85 per cent of construction and supplier contracts will go to Okanagan-based companies. The hotel will include an indoor pool, a fitness room, a business centre and meeting rooms. â€œIt will serve another segment of the hospitality market,â€? said Poole. â€œThere will be corporate travellers and they have great exposure from the highway.â€? Poole expects the hotel will also draw people visiting Silver Star and the adjacent Lake City Casino. It could also lead to additional hotel room tax revenue for the city, which goes into marketing the community. The Fairfield Inn will be constructed and owned by Vernon-based Hollypark Organization and operated under a franchise agreement with Marriott International.

Strategy in place for moving patients RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Planning continues for one of the biggest moves in the North Okanaganâ€™s history. Patients and staff will relocate from the existing facilities at Vernon Jubilee Hospital to the new patient care tower Sept. 25. â€œEvery three minutes we will move a patient,â€? said Allan Sinclair, vice-president of acute services with the Interior Health Authority. On Sept. 25, the new emergency room will open at 7 a.m. and patients will start moving at 8:30 a.m. Itâ€™s anticipated the
â€œWe are asking people to stay away from the hospital on move day.â€? â€” Allan Sinclair entire move will be wrapped up by mid-afternoon. â€œWe are asking people to stay away from the hospital on move day,â€? said Sinclair. â€œIt will be a very busy, hectic day.â€? As a result of the shift into the new tower, there will be some
service curtailments Sept. 24 and 25. Laboratory services will only be available downtown, while the cardiopulmonary clinics and ambulatory care will be closed for the weekend. One emergency operating room will be open at all times.
IHA is also proceeding with some major changes to the existing hospital building. The second (surgical) and the third floor (medical inpatient) functions of the west wing will be flipped so there is improved access between the operating rooms and surgical inpatients. Renovations of the two floors will occur between October and December. Some rooms will be taken offline for the work but Sinclair insists thatâ€™s just a temporary measure. â€œThe 148 beds approved and funded for Vernon Jubilee

Officials insist they have a handle on the stench coming from a contentious composting plant. Operators of the biosolids composting facility on Commonage Road told Vernon council Monday that operational changes have been implemented to reduce the odour negatively impacting nearby residents. “The compost facility has had its challenges and we’re working very hard to address those issues,” said Don Degen, the City of Kelowna’s utility ser-

“There was a faint woody smell.” — Shirley Koenig vices manager. The plant, which is owned by Vernon and Kelowna, takes sewer waste from both communities and turns it into Ogogrow fertilizer. “Odour complaints have been a little higher this year than last year,” said Gordon, biosolids supervisor. Among the original problems with the facility, which opened in 2006, were being over-capacity, drainage and having no filters to reduce odours. However, design capacity issues were addressed this year. Other actions have included reducing pile heights and improving mix ratios with hog fuel. Hauling trucks are being kept clean and the doors to the mix building are being closed. “We also have a plan that gives us response protocols if we have an odour issue,” said Degen. That includes being in contact with residents. “Residents are attending advisory committee meetings and they’ve provided input. We’ve opened the door,” said Degen of trying to improve relations. Vernon and Kelowna officials are also visiting neighbourhoods to monitor odour concerns. “It was a still night and there was a faint woody smell, not an offensive smell,” said Shirley Koenig, Vernon’s operations manager, of a visit to Kekuli Estates. Online odour monitoring has also been initiated. “We know at all times what our odour levels are,” said Degen. “It’s something we take very seriously. We’re working hard to fine-tune the process.”
Vandals damage orchard equipment JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
Busted-up water pipes and toppled over toilets were among the damage done to a local orchard Sept. 9. Someone caused extensive damage (over $5,000 worth) to the irrigation system in the orchard at 6359 Pleasant Valley Road. “That’s the same orchard where the bones were found Gord Molendyk recently,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. Damage was done to remote electronic solenoids, irrigation valves, tractors and other equipment and trees. Garbage containers, toilets and equipment were turned over and five PVC water lines were broken in the orchard. “This damage resulted in an embankment being washed out and water and mud making it all the way down to Pleasant Valley Road,” said Molendyk. “You can actually see where the water has come right down the hill and through the orchard.” The total damage estimate is not in yet, although it appears to be very significant, according to Molendyk. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Vernon RCMP detachment at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).

Olsen carries NDP banner Morning Star Staff
There won’t be a provincial election until 2013, but the NDP is ready for the campaign. Mark Olsen was selected as the VernonMonashee candidate during a nomination meeting that also included Nikki Inouye Sunday. “I am not in this race to just get elected,” said Olsen, who will go up against Liberal MLA Eric Foster in the next election. “I am not in this race to get the position. I am in this race to be effective and I want to be judged on my effectiveMark Olsen ness.” Olsen is pushing to have the two upper floors at Vernon Jubilee Hospital’s patient care tower completed so more acute care beds can be opened. “I will state here and now if the hospital bed issue is not addressed by the time the election is called I will stake my political career on obtaining them,” he said. “If elected and we form government I will guarantee resolving this issue and I want to be held accountable to that promise.” Olsen represented the NDP in the 2009 provincial election and he is the president of the CUPE local with the Vernon School District. Inouye, the federal NDP candidate in the May 2011 election, is hopeful the party can beat Foster. “We will work together, and we will win this riding in 2013,” she said. Seventy-three members turned out for the nomination meeting Sunday.
sultation wasn’t sufficient. “Our council has to initiate a mechanism to touch all people.” Many of the concerns revolved around land-use designation being changed for some properties and how that may impact current activities or future development. Jason Gilbert, who sits on the city’s economic development
committee, says the process could prevent investors from moving to Vernon. “When decisions are made that affect people’s property, those stories resonate and they tell their friends and family,” he said. A primary concern has been shifting part of 31st Street from mixed residential and commercial uses to strictly residential.
“Too much has changed in this neighbourhood to force it back to residential only,” said Jeff Boschert, whose wife owns property in the area. Boschert says the area faces pressures from the nearby highway and people have been able to afford properties for business while perhaps living on site. “This area has been a vital incubator for small

businesses in the community.” Complaints also arose over possibly reducing 43rd Avenue, near 29th Street, from four to three lanes to allow for bicycle paths. “Three lanes will move traffic out of our area and hurt our businesses,” said Gary Krieger, who owns Tireland. However, there was some support for the
neighbourhood plan. “If we stop this plan, you’ll put the gear in reverse and it will be difficult to get things going forward,” said John Deak, adding that there is a need to stimulate growth and investment. The city centre neighbourhood plan is expected to be back before council members for consideration Sept. 26.

With 6,033 people calling for more beds, it’s hoped an announcement will be made when Vernon Jubilee Hospital’s Polson Tower officially opens Sept. 25. The 6,033-signature petition, wrapped in lilac paper and topped with a purple ribbon, was handed over to Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA, Monday. “I will hand deliver this to the Minister of Health (Michael de Jong),” said Foster, as he accepted the hundreds of pages signed by residents of Vernon, Coldstream, Lumby, Armstrong, Falkland, Salmon Arm and as far as Revelstoke. He also confirmed that the issue is already on Premier Christy Clark’s radar. “I met with the premier myself Friday for 45 minutes and 40 minutes of that discussion was about the hospital,” said Foster, holding the petition which was started several
months ago with a goal of 5,000 signatures. With all of the efforts Foster has made to bring the issue to the forefront, Dr. Chris Cunningham says the petition is in good hands. “We really appreciate and we are cognizant of what Eric Foster has done lobbying the government,” said Cunningham. Meanwhile Peter Hill, who has organized the last two rallies at the hospital, is hopeful that everyone’s efforts will pay off when the new tower officially opens Sept. 25. “We’re well expecting the government to make an announcement that day and we’re not expecting a negative response, we’re expecting a positive one,” said Hill. Foster could not say when or if an announcement might come forth. “I appreciate the effort put into this, I’ve put a lot of time into it myself and we continue to work at it and hopefully we will have an answer sooner rather than later,” said Foster.
Identification leads to suspect JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
An individual who ran away with a bottle of booze from a Vernon liquor store Sept. 9 forgot an important piece of ID. A male inside Gerry O’s Liquor Store had been acting suspicious and was asked to leave because he appeared to be under the influence. “As the man started to walk out
the clerk noticed that he had a bottle in his right pant leg, the clerk told the man, ‘Stop!’ but he ran out of the store,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. “In his haste to get away he dropped his wallet in the store.” The clerk checked the ID inside the wallet and was able to positively identify the suspect, whom police are in the process of locating.

Clark must get involved
hristy Clark didn’t waste any time in insisting that her style of government would be different. Selected as Liberal leader in February, the then-premier designate called for a new relationship with British Columbians. “I want you to be my partners in change in Victoria, I want you to be my partners in bringing open government, you can count on me to listen to, you can count on me to engage you and you can count on me to ensure our government really does include you,” she said. “I have specific ideas on how to do these things, but I need to hear from you. More than Richard Rolke anything our government will be tuned into families like never before.” That was then and this is now, and one has to wonder if Clark will listen to the 6,033 people who signed a petition demanding the two top floors at Vernon Jubilee Hospital be completed as a way of alleviating chronic overcrowding. Beyond the petition, there has been rallies in Vernon and Falkland, and countless letters to the editor have focused on the ongoing situation. Purple ribbons are pinned to shirts, jackets and hats. Clark has chanted the mantra of “Families First,” but that contrasts with the experiences of Darrel Stinson, a former MP who has met many patients since he was diagnosed with cancer in 2005. “Where I was trying to walk, I bumped into their beds (in the halls),” he told the Labour Day rally at VJH. “The embarrassment they felt as they covered up. One man said to me, ‘Try and use a bed pan when someone bumps into your bed.’” A thin curtain separates your bed from those passing by in the hall, meaning there is

no privacy while visiting with family or when the doctor is updating you on your health. Beyond the hospital, many residents struggle in pain and wait for their name to rise to the top of the surgical waitlist. Over-crowding often means there isn’t a bed for them once surgery is completed so the procedure is cancelled. Now Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster insists VJH is a priority for Clark. “I met with the premier myself Friday for 45 minutes and 40 minutes of that discussion were about the hospital,” said Foster as he accepted the petition from organizers Monday. That’s good news and it particularly indicates that Foster understands the seriousness of the situation and is lobbying on behalf of his constituents. But there is only so much Foster, as a backbench MLA, can do. The final decision will be made by those who control the cash, including the health minister, the finance minister and the premier (also at the table is Education Minister George Abbott but the Shuswap MLA has yet to acknowledge more acute care beds are needed). Meeting with Foster for 45 minutes will mean absolutely nothing if Clark doesn’t take action and conditions at the hospital continue to worsen. As was mentioned earlier, Clark told British Columbians in February that, “you can count on me to listen, you can count on me to engage you and you can count on me to ensure our government really does include you.” If that is the case, it is time for Clark to visit Vernon and meet one-on-one with hospital administrators, doctors and nurses. But most importantly, she needs to talk directly to those people who have surgery cancelled or have been forced into a hall because there aren’t enough beds. That would go a long ways towards putting families first.
A guy walks into a casino and buys $20,000 worth of chips with cash – $10 and $20 bills. He plays a couple of quick slots or, perhaps, a hand or two of blackjack, and then cashes out. It seems everyone except the government knows what’s going on. The money is being laundered. Recently the government announced, finally, some measures to combat money laundering at casinos. Reducing casinos’ use of cash and increasing worker training are among provincial actions announced recently, even though, according to a government press release: “The BC Lottery Corporation (BCLC) employs standard and appropriate anti-money-laundering strategies and the Province’s Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB) has the required level of expertise and is capable of providing oversight related to anti-money laundering and associated criminal activities at gaming facilities.” The government is now going to push the casinos to make electronic funds “more accessible and attractive to customers, while not discouraging legitimate play.” Government is also going to push casinos to issue cheques for large payouts and those amounts will be noted whether they actually come from a win. Fair enough. But wouldn’t it simply be easier to limit the amount of cash a person can use at a casino? Say $100 or $500 even? If you want more, you have to write a personal cheque for it or use your debit card. The whole idea behind money laundering is to change money without leaving a trail. Force everyone to leave a trail of their money at the casino. Quesnel Cariboo Observer

Grid Road's great but...
n response to The Morning Star article entitled 'Proposed Closure of Railway Crossing Possible,' I’d like to first offer my congratulations to Mayor Jim Garlick, Coldstream council and staff for completing the long-awaited Grid Road connecting Highway 97 and Kal Lake Road. This road takes the pressure off of WestKal Road, which was never designed to support the kind of heavy traffic volume that it has over the recent past, as well as serve as a residential street. I have also noticed a sharp reduction in traffic volume on Kickwillie Loop /WestKal Roads since the Grid Road has opened. I'm sure that it will further decrease once the needed signage is in place to direct people onto the Grid Road who are driving to their Kal Lake and area destinations, and Highway 97 and Okanagan College going the other way. In regards to the possible closure of the Kickwillie Loop Road railway crossing, the article suggests that closure of the railway POLITICAL LESSON A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal democrat, and among many other liberal ideals, was very much in favour of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words, redistribution of wealth. She was deeply ashamed that her father was a very staunch conservative, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures she had participated in and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father has for years harboured an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his. One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs. The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking her how she was doing in school. Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left
crossing might further decrease traffic along WestKal. It would be my guess that it would actually do the opposite as more people would need to use WestKal that would normally take Kickwillie Loop Road such as residents further down WestKal and others wishing to access the WestKal boat launch, the Kalamalka Country Club, Pumphouse Beach and other public lake access sites fur-
her no time to go out and party like some people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying. Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey doing?" She replied, "Audrey is hardly getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for class because she's too hung over." Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the dean's office and ask him to deduct 1.0 of your GPA and give it to your friend who has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA." The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back, "That's a crazy idea. How would that be fair? I've worked really hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!"

ther down WestKal. Closing this crossing might also likely have the undesirable effect of increased use of the Kalavista boat launch and heavily used beaches elsewhere on Kal Lake. Safety is another issue. Many residents living in the neighbourhoods tributary to Kickwillie Loop Road have concerns about access to College Way during winter driving
Her father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the conservative party." If anyone has a better explanation of the difference between conservative and liberal, I'm all ears. If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test. If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed. If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone. If a conservative is down and out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him. If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down. If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A liberal nonbeliever wants any mention of God or religion silenced (unless it's a foreign religion, of course). If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh. A liberal will delete it because he's "offended." Well, I forward it to you. Knut A. Krogstad

FINISH HOSPITAL NOW Vernon and the North Okanagan have experienced a large population growth in the last 10 years. Our local hospital resources have not kept pace with this population increase. Vernon Jubilee Hospital does not have enough hospital beds to allow its physicians to look after those who are sick or injured. Scheduled admission for surgical or diagnostic procedures have long waiting lists and admissions are often cancelled or postponed. Recently, Vernon Jubilee Hospital was in the news for holding 192 patients in a 148-bed hospital. Chronic overcrowding is, however, the daily norm with numbers running in the 160-170 range daily. Therefore, cancellation of scheduled operations and other necessary procedures has become a sad and dangerous reality of North Okanagan. In September 2011, a new "Tower of Care" will open. Unfortunately, it will open with two empty and unfinished floors on top. The Ministry of Health must fund the Interior Health Authority to complete the construction, provide the staff, and open the new inpatient wards and operating rooms in the VJH "Tower of Care" now; not

conditions. WestKal provides an alternative route for residents and emergency vehicles when Kickwillie Loop Road and College Way become virtually impassable. Area residents are concerned that the previous petition and Coldstream council`s recommendations on this matter seem to have been disregarded and that this issue is once again on the table. The current alternate access to WestKal should be considered an important asset and part of the Coldstream road infrastructure for the long term. Why would an agreement with Kelowna Pacific Rail to either spend a large sum of money to upgrade the railway crossing (despite significantly reduced usage) or close the crossing have been signed without consulting with affected area residents first? What about a simpler option like stop signs or at least extending the completion date to something more reasonable? Rein Kahlke

Police target vandalism spree JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
Authorities are hopeful the community can help solve a recent spree of vandalism in Armstrong. Although the incidents are more than a month old now, the public’s assistance is being sought with three mischief complaints that came in Aug. 13. “In one day all of these came in so they figure that an individual or individuals went on a spree,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. In the first incident, someone entered the rear yard of 3157 Patterson Avenue and slashed an above ground swimming pool (valued at $1,000), as well as a hammock
and a badminton net. The second incident occurred at Armstrong Elementary, where someone used a saw and cut down four trees (valued at $1,700) that had been recently planted by the PAC (Parent Advisory Council). The third incident
took place at Fletcher and Okanagan Street where the suspect cut the centre out of a trampoline. Local RCMP are baffled by these senseless acts. “Why would you cut the centre out of a trampoline?” questioned Molendyk. “It just doesn’t

Abbott earns distinguished OC alumni award RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
George Abbott has made the grade with Okanagan College.
The Okanagan College Alumni Association will present the Shuswap MLA and education minister
with its distinguished alumni award Oct. 6. “I am surprised and very honoured,” said Abbott.
The Enderbyborn Abbott attended Okanagan College in 1970/71 when the Salmon Arm campus
was located in portables across from Shuswap Lake General Hospital. He then went on to teach political science at
the college for 15 years. “There’s been a long association with Okanagan College,” said Abbott, adding that the

relationship has influenced his role in local and provincial politics. “One learns an incredible amount from teaching. I learned a lot about life and the world from Okanagan College and it’s serving me well as minister of education.” Abbott admits the college system has experienced incredible growth since he first attended classes. “I’m totally impressed by what Okanagan College has done as an institution,” he said. “I am particularly pleased with the work they are doing with skills and trades and the work in aboriginal education.” Abbott and Koyczan will be recognized at a cocktail reception event at 6 p.m. Oct. 6 at the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College. Tickets are now available at a cost of $55 per person. Anyone interested in attending can contact Katerina Hay at (250) 862-5630 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

A logging truck rollover east of Lumby closed Highway 6 for several hours Monday morning. The accident occurred just after 7 a.m. after the truck went into the ditch and then overturned, spilling its load. “The driver received minor injuries in the accident but was able to get out of the cab of the truck,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. “He told investigators that he swerved to miss a deer,” said Molendyk. “They (investigators) are following up on it.” The road was closed for several hours while crews cleaned up logs and got the truck back up on its wheels. Traffic was detoured around the accident scene.

Winter Games Vernon BC 2012
Call for volunteers ROGER KNOX
Morning Star Staff
It’s true, some people who volunteer for a major event take their time in signing up to help. And while Akbal Mund is okay with that philosophy, he would like to see some more early birds. The chair of the Greater Vernon B.C. Winter Games committee has put out the call for more volunteers as 2,200 will be anticipated to be needed for the Games, slated for Feb. 23-26, 2012. “Volunteers remain at the top of our priority list and will stay there all the way through, until we get the 2,200 people,” said Mund. “Most people who volunteer sign up over the last couple of months. Our goal is to try to get these people now, so we don’t have to go back and say, ‘Ok, how many more do we need?’” Another perk to signing up early is that volunteers can have their choice of where they would like to help out. “Volunteers who like to help out in certain areas, if they sign up now they probably get their choice,” said Mund. “If you go to sign
up later, we might already have enough volunteers in a certain spot so we would place them in area where we need them.” To sign up as a volunteer, and to see where volunteers are needed, you can visit the Games’ website, www.2012bcwintergames. ca. The new Games’ office in downtown Vernon, in the old Vernon Flower Shop building (3011-31st Avenue) should be open and fully operational by mid-September. The office number will be 250-550-2012. The office will officially be opened on Thursday, Sept. 29, with an open house for the public from 4 to 6 p.m. One event planned to ignite the Games’ spirit will be a Torchlight Ceremony at Spirit Square. “That will be an exciting event, starting 100 days out from the beginning of the Games,” said Mund. “It will show we’re ready to go and ready to host all of the athletes, coaches and officials coming into town. “Right now, we are not behind and we have everybody on board. Everything that needed to be done by this time has been done.” The ceremony will take place on Friday, Nov. 18, starting with a block party at 5 p.m. The Torchlight ceremony will begin at 7 p.m.

Games announces new office manager ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Already a well-oiled machine, Brenda Thorlakson’s role is to keep the Greater Vernon B.C. Winter Games committee organized and running smoothly. The former executive director with the North Okanagan Hospice Society has taken on the task of operations manager for the local Games’ committee. “My job is to provide support and co-ordinate the activities of the board and volunteers,” said the always affable Thorlakson from what will be her desk at the Games’ downtown office in the old Vernon Flower Shop building. “There are 130 key volunteers who are responsible for putting the Games on, and they are already doing a phenomenal job. It’s something we all take very serious, with a lot of responsibility, but it’s very much a working board.” Recognized for her 13 years with hospice, Thorlakson had been enjoying semi-retirement when she was approached by some people with the local committee to look at the role of operations manager. There are some parallels from her role at hospice that Thorlakson brings to the Greater Vernon Games’ committee. “Hospice is very much a grassroots volunteer operation and I’m really committed
to that model for getting things done,” she said. “I really believe volunteers are what get things done. I have organizational skills that I bring to the role to help co-ordinate and support the board. I don’t have to have a leadership role, which is nice. I take my lead from the board.” Thorlakson encourages North Okanagan citizens to become involved with the Winter Games. “There will be 2,200 volunteer position opportunities and I know Greater Vernon will step up,” she said. “Many people will sign up to work during the Games, which are set for Feb. 23-26.” People who want to volunteer can do so by visiting www.2012bcwintergames.ca. The new Greater Vernon B.C. Winter Games office, located at 3011-31st Avenue, will officially open Thursday, Sept. 29, from 4 to 6 p.m., but Thorlakson will be busy at her desk long before that. However, the public is invited to the official opening to enjoy some socializing and free cake. “We just ask people to be careful coming into the office as they are digging up the road out front,” said Thorlakson. The Greater Vernon B.C. Winter Games office phone number will be 250-550-2012 if anybody has questions or would like to volunteer.

News Dry conditions prompt request to delay cutting firewood Morning Star Staff
North Okanagan residents are strongly encouraged to postpone cutting firewood
due to hot, dry conditions and an increased risk of wildfires. Since Sept. 1, crews have responded to some
fires in the Kamloops Fire Centre that may have been caused by power saws used to cut and buck-up firewood.
As a precaution, people should delay collecting wood until the fire risk decreases. Those who still
plan to cut firewood are reminded that itâ€™s currently considered a high-risk activity across most of the
Kamloops Fire Centre and subject to the following restrictions: All cutting must occur before 1 p.m.

A fire watcher must remain on site for a minimum of two hours after cutting is completed. Cutting firewood is prohibited in those areas where the fire danger rating has hit extreme for more than three consecutive days. Failure to comply with a restriction can result in a $345 fine. Anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or recklessness may be fined up to $1 million and held responsible for suppression costs. To report a wildfire or unattended campfire, call *5555 on your cellphone or toll-free to 1-800-663-5555.

C HECK I T O UT AT B OOKLAND SHELTER Frances Greensladeâ€™s new novel is the story of two sisters, Maggie and Jenny, and their quest to ďŹ nd out what happened to their mother who left them to billet in Williams Lake, in British Columbia, and never came back. Set in the 1960s and 70s in the wilds of the Chilcotin, where itâ€™s still possible to lose yourself, the novel explores the attachment we have to our mothers, and the expectation we hold that they will always be our mothers, and nothing more.

Mackinaw jacket-wearing, sawdust-covered, chainsaw oil-smelling supporters are coming out of the woodworks. Silver Starâ€™s Saloon is hosting a Lumberjack/Jill fundraiser Saturday in support of educating underprivileged kids. The themed event is a cut off the old block of a local manâ€™s charity parties. Ewen James Cameron has been hosting themed fundraisers for a couple years now, ever since a phone call he received from the B.C. Blind Sports and Recreation Association. â€œTwo years ago I received a call from a person asking if I had time to listen to what she had to say about the charity she worked for,â€? said Cameron, a native of Scotland who now lives and works up at Silver Star and is consistently involved with charity work. â€œAs it turned out I wasnâ€™t in a rush so I listened and really liked what the charity worked towards. â€œI told her that I had some recycling money that I could donate, then figured out I could do way better.â€?

with the money going towards a couple local having difficulty in their pregnancy. â€œThe theme this year is Lumberjack/Jill and with the help of Silver Star, the Saloon, and the very generous community around Vernon, itâ€™ll hopefully dwarf the money earned in the previous years,â€? said Cameron. This yearâ€™s cause of choice is Janieâ€™s School â€“ a project to have a school built in Cambodia. â€œA friend of mine (Jennifer Begg) from back in school unfortunately lost her mother recently and, as her mother was always very involved in education, Jennifer has taken on the challenge of building a school in rural Cambodia providing a safe environment for children less fortunate than ourselves to learn and grow in,â€? said Cameron. The school is named after Jenniferâ€™s mother â€“ Janie. For more information on the project, visit www.janiesschool.org. The Lumberjack/Jill fundraiser gets underway at 9 p.m. at the Saloon Saturday. A portion of the kitchen proceeds will be going to the cause, along with the $5 cover charge to get in.

Soprano balances performing with teaching Morning Star Staff
Local opera singer and vocal instructor Melina Moore is spreading her wings, and her coloratura soprano voice, with invitations coming in to sing both around the province and worldwide. Moore, who is based in Vernon, has a full plate for the 2011-2012 season and just finished a sold-out concert tour on Vancouver Island, with the Victoria Summer Symphony and Choir. She was featured as the guest soprano soloist with maestro Simon Leung, performing to full houses in Victoria, Nanaimo, Sidney and Duncan throughout July and August. “I loved spending time on the island and introducing new repertoire to West Coast audiences,” said Moore. “I could certainly see myself living and performing in Victoria in the future.” While she loved the charm and bustle of B.C.’s capital, she plans to make her home and studio in Vernon for years to come, but also has some exciting touring plans for the future. The producers of the Vancouver Island concerts have extended an invite to Moore to perform in Thailand, Vietnam and Saigon in 2012 and 2013. For those who wonder how Moore manages to keep up with a schedule that includes a burgeoning solo opera career, the mentoring of many aspiring singers, as well as raising her own budding young star, son Justin Moore, 11, she says it’s about having passion and faith, and believing in everything she does. “I believe that I am only successful as a teacher because I live what I teach,
every time I step onto a stage,” she said. “I teach from experience and from my heart. And I have unwavering faith in the universe and its plans for me. I am just a vessel for what needs to be expressed through me in what I do.” Locally, Moore will again share the stage with the Okanagan Symphony for the Mozart Requiem in early November. “What a thrill to sing this epic musical work with the OSO and a choir of over 100 voices. I am so honoured,” she said.
“By the time June rolls around each year, I am exhausted, but thoroughly fulfilled. — Melina Moore And she will continue to make regular appearances as the “Diva on the Hill” at Sparkling Hill Wellness Resort. “The concert series we began in 2010 has been so successful. Plus, I just love shattering the crystals with the high notes,” she laughed. Moore also continues seasonal engagements with Venus Headlights, a trio made up of local jazz diva Judy Rose and singer-songwriter Tanya Lipscomb. The female powerhouse ensemble performs for a third time at Vernon’s Headbones Gallery this Friday. “Venus Headlights has been one of the single-most inspiring and creative performance experiences I’ve ever been part of. Working with Tanya and Judy in their unique styles of music pushes
me to new heights in my own artistry,” said Moore, who returns to her hometown of New York City in the New Year for recital engagements. Along with her busy performance schedule, Moore’s vocal training and performance studio, Valley Vocal Arts, is about to embark on its 16th year in the Okanagan. Not only will she be conducting classes, Moore will be directing her troupe to the Powerhouse Theatre stage for their third annual full-scale musical production. “With the successes of Les Miserables in 2010 and The Producers last spring, it is clear that the valley clamors for more live theatre. I am so happy to oblige and bring Broadway quality work to our local audiences,” she said. “This is the first year I will be including all of my singers in our main-stage musical: the Mini Divas, Company Junior and Company. The show will be announced soon, and it is going to be the most challenging we’ve done to date.” With a roster of close to 80 singers of all ages, Moore and her students are gearing up for a busy and exciting studio season. Not only will they deliver monthly recitals, but there will also be cabaret nights, kids’ productions and the second annual Melina & Co. Christmas Show at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Dec. 10. “By the time June rolls around each year, I am exhausted, but thoroughly fulfilled,” she said. Fans can follow Moore’s solo performance and studio schedules on her website at www.melinamoore.com.

ArtWalk brings all walks of life to Lake Country CHRIS LAW Black Press
Since its early beginnings at Holiday Park Resort, ArtWalk has impressed the crowds that turn out for the annual show. Eighteen years later the enthusiasm for the show has only grown.
For the artists, it’s a great opportunity for exposure with thousands of people flocking through the doors during the course of the two-day event. “It was a lot of work to get myself ready for this weekend but I’m getting a lot of really good
comments, which is nice,” said Peggy Stel, a Penticton-based artist who was attending ArtWalk for the first time as an exhibitor. The compliments were not directed at the artists alone either. “It’s such a great event for the community,” said Stel.
“I can’t believe the amount of talent they’ve managed to bring together all in one place.” That was the sort of chatter that buzzed through the air as the attendees meandered through the exhibits at the Lake Country Community Complex and
Memorial Hall across the road. An event of this scale doesn’t go off without a lot of planning and it won’t be long now before arrangements are underway to carry on the tradition of making next year’s show bigger and better.

See Allen’s homage to the City of Light Vernon Film Society
Vernon Film Society devotees have only one week between the first and second films of the fall season. In a complete switch from the theme of the first of the society’s films, Woody Allen’s fanciful Midnight in Paris will be shown Monday at the Towne Cinema. Paris is shown in all its splendour in this romantic time-travelling story. Owen Wilson plays a Hollywood script writer, Gil, who yearns to write a literary novel. He finds himself in Paris with his fiancée Inez (Rachel McAdams) and her grouchy parents, none of whom share his nostalgia for bygone bohemian Paris. The fact that Inez’ parents are right wing Americans gives Allen a chance to insert some contemporary Tea Party jokes. When having a solitary midnight stroll, Gil is picked up in a vintage car and finds himself in the Paris of his dreams, mixing with the characters many of us have read of: Hemingway, Picasso, Dali (a vastly amusing portrait by Adrian Brody), and even Gertrude Stein, portrayed by a multilingual Kathy Bates. He continues to return night after night, falling in love with Picasso’s mistress, Adriana, who is played by Marion Cotillard. He finds she cannot understand his enthusiasm for the era, saying, “Surely you don’t think the ‘20s is a Golden Age? It’s the present, it’s dull.” The movie may make us wonder why generally a previous age is looked on as more interesting and exciting than our present age and if this continues to be

Carla Bruni has a cameo performance as a guide in the Rodin museum and by all accounts carries it off well.

Band Steel Wound, featuring Rod MacDonald, left, Keith Hustler and Kerry Parks, is the feature act for the Coldstream Coffee House, which starts up for the season Saturday at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall.
Open mic perks up for season Morning Star Staff
It’s that time of year again: kids are back in school, leaves will soon start to turn colour, and much of the great live entertainment enjoyed outside during the summer months will now move indoors. Back once again this fall is the Coldstream Coffee House. The public can enjoy live entertainment at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall on Kalamalka Road, right across from Coldstream Elementary School, on the third Saturday of every month from fall to spring (some exceptions apply). “Music, poetry, spoken word or even comedy, this venue hosts a nice warm, family-friendly event,” said Rory White, a local musician who has taken over the reins, along with other musicians, to run this season’s event. White, who performs with The Porchpickers, runs the successful open mic in Armstrong at The Junction Café. He’s joined by Keith Hustler of Steel Wound and Hustler Guitars,
Kerry Parks of Steel Wound, Ellie Young of Backroad, The Porchpickers, Runaway Lane and Sorella, who also runs a successful open mic in Enderby, Keven Huffman of Backroad and The Porchpickers, Rod MacDonald of Steel Wound, Dave Maines, and Dianne Hustler, just to name a few. “They are the main part of a group of awesome volunteers who will be putting on the shows this year,” said White. The feature act for the first Coldstream Coffee House Saturday is Steel Wound. Doors to the event open at 6:30 p.m., with the show starting at 7 p.m. “Participants are invited to get there early to sign-up to perform,” said White. Admission is $3 and goodies are also available for a nominal cost. For more information on dates and times, check The Morning Star’s LiveWire calendar on Fridays. Also, check out the new Coldstream Coffee House page on Facebook.
Southern gospel comes north Morning Star Staff
Award winning contemporary southern gospel trio Three and Company will be coming to Vernon for a concert at Vernon Alliance Church Saturday.

Nominated for GMA awards in 2009 and 2010, Three and Company’s music has been played on XM/Sirius satellite radio. The title song of their award winning CD, I Believe, was written by Jimmy Fortune of the Statler brothers. Three and Company members, Dale and

Association president Paul Kariya explained how critics, notably the NDP’s John Horgan, manipulate rate figures to create an impression that independent power is hugely overpriced. One out of three proposals never makes it to production. B.C.’s second wind farm, the Dokie project near Chetwynd, went broke, then was taken over and completed by Plutonic Power Corp and General Electric. Here’s an indication of how quickly the clean energy field is evolving: This year Plutonic merged with Magma Energy Corp., which has geothermal assets in Iceland and Nevada. The merged company, Alterra Power Corp., has backed away from the vast Bute Inlet run-of-river proposal on the B.C. coast, but its nearby East Toba and Montrose river generators and the Dokie wind farm have performed better than expected. The Bute project won’t go anywhere until the North American power market changes dramatically. Currently the market is low, due mainly to an abundance of cheap natural gas and government-subsidized wind
power in the U.S. Horgan claims private investment is a nefarious scheme to create a “parallel generating system” for private profit. That seems to be his key criterion for acceptable small hydro: as long as nobody makes a profit. Professional environmentalists claim rivers have been destroyed. Their favourite villain, Ashlu Creek near Squamish, has been running smoothly for nearly two years, its critics silenced. A new runof-river cluster around Harrison Lake has energized two remote native villages. I’ve seen these things, from construction stage to mature operation. If that’s your idea of devastation, you should get out more, and acquaint yourself with the history of logging in particular. And if you’re going to insinuate that this is political corruption, as Horgan does, you need a better case than the flimsy one he has presented so far.

United Way serves support with annual breakfast Morning Star Staff
Helping the community is in the bag. Volunteers will be handing out breakfast bags by donation during the United Way drive-thru breakfast fundraiser Thursday from 6 to 9 a.m. at the Best Western Plus Linda Yule Vernon Lodge. “I hope everyone comes out and has fun,” said Linda Yule, United Way executive director, of the event which raises funds for 27 non-profit
agencies. There are a total of 800 bags, which include a range of food items, and the event generally sells out. One of the bags will include a grand prize of two tickets to two Seattle Mariners games and two nights accommodation. Besides breakfast, participants can get a newspaper, a complimentary coffee and their windshield washed. Last year, the breakfast raised $12,300. The fundraiser is the official kickoff to the United Way’s annual campaign, which hopes to raise $300,000 by the end of 2011. For more information about United Way, call 250-549-1346.

Bridge by Phillip Alder YOU ARE CRUISING TO DEFEAT DECLARER “When the glacier sees the spring sun, he weeps,” is a Norwegian proverb. I guess if you have spent a month or more not seeing the sun, you can relate to that. The city of Stavanger has a huge party when the sun returns in January. Here is another deal from my cruise to Norway two months ago. Look at the West hand. East opens one spade, West raises to two spades, North makes a takeout double, and South advances with three diamonds, which ends the auction. What should West lead? Note the disciplined auction. East has a perfectly respectable onespade opening, but when
West can offer only a single raise, East should not go higher, because he has no extra values or spade length. Equally, West said his piece on the ﬁrst round. When you have supported your partner’s suit, lead high from a low tripleton to deny an honor. If West does this, East should ﬁnd the right defense. He must win with his spade king and shift to the club king -- under which West should signal enthusiastically with his nine to show the jack. A moment later, when West gets in with the heart ace, a club continuation gives the defense ﬁve tricks: two spades, one heart and two clubs. Note that if West leads
the spade three at trick one, East will assume West has a spade honor, which must be the jack. It would then be safe for East to start with two spade winners before switching to clubs. Here, though, that is fatal because South discards a club from the dummy on his spade jack.

With assistance from the Interior Health Authority’s Community Food Action Initiative many schools are teaching students about producing healthy food and the science behind it. “For many people fast food and processed food are more readily available and affordable than healthy food. This presents a real concern, as these foods can lead to poor health,” said Heather Deegan, manager of IHA’s food security and community nutrition program. “Interior Health has joined forces with many schools and communities to change that and the results are very exciting. Students are developing awareness about healthy, locally grown food and they are learning the skills to grow it themselves.” Some schools have developed gardens on site while others have looked at organic composting and raising chickens. The Community Food Action Initiative is a grant program that encourages communities to use novel approaches to overcome their unique barriers to accessing healthy, safe and nutritious foods.

Magnums bombard Bighorns Sundevils double Jackets in Pee Wee showdown Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Magnums steamrolled the Columbia Valley Bighorns of Invermere 33-0 in Southern Interior Midget Football League action Sunday at Grahame Park. Vernon runningback and game MVP Dustyn Schubert ran hard all day and scored a pair of touchdowns. Quarterback Chad Woodhead took command of the game and connected with Magnum veteran Kris Boring for two passing touchdowns. The Magnumsâ€™ brute force defensive unit stymied the Bighorn offence at every turn. Linebacker and captain Jonathan Roy sacked Columbia Valley quarterback and team MVP, Ryley Purdy, just before the end of the first half which helped Vernon carry the momentum in to the second half with a 13-0 lead. Dan Vassberg added another sack in the third quarter, while linebacker Greg Hyde pulled off another interception and run into the endzone for the Magnumsâ€™ final TD of the game. â€œThe Magnums executed a much better offence today,â€? said assistant coach Lee Elliott. Defensive coordinator Ryan Bridge, was happy with his crewâ€™s sharpness this early in the season. â€œWe are playing well; however we will continue to make adjustments and improve every week.â€? The Magnums take their 2-0 mark on the road this Sunday at Kings Park versus the Penticton Cougars.
In Pee Wee football, the Vernon McDonalds Yellowjackets lost a 12-6 defensive battle against the host West Kelowna Sundevils. The game opened with Vernonâ€™s Zach Benn returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown that was wiped out due to penalty. After that electrifying run, the first half was a all about defence with the Sundevils picking up a fumble and returning the ball for a TD midway through the second quarter. The see-saw affair continued for the remainder of the first half, while the second half opened with West Kelowna putting together a great drive to go up 12-0. Midway through the fourth quarter, Dylan Huber stripped the ball from a Sundevils player and ran the ball 100 yards down field for Vernonâ€™s only points of the game. The play gave life to the Jackets, who drove the ball 50 yards in the last minute but failed to score. Defensive standouts were Bryce Tkachuk with 10 tackles, Bryce Turner with five tackles and Issac Olsen with four. Zach Boring added three tackles and Carson Harrower had a fumble recovery. Coach Ed Huber gave special mention to Jeff Estrada, Carson Hamming and Nez Ford who battled on the defensive line and were able to slow down the Sundevils interior run game. Riley MacGillvray and Benn had solid showings running the ball. The Jackets try on the Kamloops Wildcats for size Sunday at noon (Grahame Park). In Atom play, the Vernon Blue Bombers stuffed the host West Kelowna Dragons 8-0. Leading the defence was Isaiah Ondrik with
five tackles and a safety which gave the Bombers a 2-0 lead. Zach Smith provided three tackles and a fumble recovery, while Devin Hofsink had three tackles. The D line was sparked by Tayber McLean and Levi Lee, who made the Kelowna offence struggle to snap the ball all game long. The Vernon offence moved the ball well against the Dragons but a few penalties stalled some long drives. Ethan Anderson scored the only touchdown of the game. The Bombers received strong power running all game from Mathew Reich with 58 yards and Daniel Lesik with 45 yards, including a 40-yard scamper that led to the touchdown late in the third quarter. The visiting Vernon Marauders bowed 34-6 to the West Kelowna Sundevils in Junior Bantam play Sunday. The Sundevils jumped to a quick lead with two TDs. Jonah Waterstreet scored the lone major for the Marauders late in the first half, catching a neat little swing pass from quarterback Trey Isaac to end the half 16-6. The Marauders moved the ball well in the second half but were unable to punch it in. Mike Tesarski, Daniel Henrie and Tyler Sova provided strong blocking on the O Line and fullback Carson Labrecque was a huge asset both blocking and carrying the ball for the Marauders. On defence, Jacob Laflame-Yonkman and Bryce Sorensen were successful in blocking three attempted conversions, as well as making some bone crushing tackles. Tyler Braun, Josiah Gaskell, Weston Vanderveen, Bryce Goodrich and Reid Mackenzie were also strong on the D.
Jarryd TenVaanholt recorded the overtime winner with 90 seconds to play as the Vernon Vipers shaded the Westside Warriors 5-4 in B.C. Hockey League exhibition play Tuesday afternoon at Royal LePage Place. The rink was packed with hundreds of screaming students as part of the Warriors school game. â€œI am deaf right now; non-stop yelling all game,â€? chuckled Vipersâ€™ head coach Jason Williamson, whose lineup was depleted because of various injuries and six players away at the Canada West evaluation camp for the World Junior A Challenge. Vernonâ€™s Alex Hagen opened the scoring after taking a feed from captain Patrick McGillis behind the net. Phil Bamber, deflecting a Corson Johnstone point shot, made it 2-1 Vernon after 20 minutes. After losing forward Colton Sparrow to injury early in the game, the Viper forward corps took another blow when John Knisley was ejected for a scrap in the second frame. Vernon played the remainder with just eight forwards. Westside took its first lead with a pair of goals in the second period, but Tanner Burns responded for the Vipers with a powerplay goal in the third period. McGillis completed Vernonâ€™s offence on a one-timer set up by Marc Hetnik. â€œWe battled our way back. It was ugly, but we found a way,â€? said Williamson. â€œWe have those guys at camp, and we have some injuries. Itâ€™s 10 or 11 guys who would have been playing for us, but theyâ€™re not. Youâ€™ve got to give some credit to the guys who filled in. Theyâ€™re working hard.â€?

Centennials upend Vipers Continued from B1 In exhibition play Saturday night in Merritt, the Vipers bowed 3-2 to the Centennials at Nicola Valley Arena. Alex Hagen took a great feed from Colton Sparrow to go in on a partial breakaway and deked Cents’ netminder Russell Sanderson to put Vernon on the board less than two minutes into the game. The Vipers then fell into penalty troubles, but Merritt failed to capitalize despite outshooting Vernon 12-9 in the first frame. Unable to convert on a 5-on-3 in the second period, the Cents finally got on the board late on a powerplay as rookie Noah Dolinajek scored on a goal-mouth flurry. Williamson’s decision to put veterans Mike Zalewski, Johnny Knisley and Darren Nowick on a line paid off early in the third period. After some steady pressure in Merritt’s zone, Nowick pounced on a puck fumbled by netminder Tyler Steel, a Vernon native in his second season with the Cents. Goals by Merritt’s Evan Stack and Dylan Playfair, recording the winner with 3:47 to play, completed the offence. Zalewski and Merritt’s Jacob Reichert ended the game with a minor skirmish. Not convinced of his backup goaltending situation after main camp, Williamson decided to bring in a pair of Albertan prospects – Lethbridge’s Alex Wakaluk, the son of former NHLer Darcy Wakaluk, and Sherwood Park’s Mike Gudmanson – for an exhibition audition. However, Williamson’s decision came before Vernon’s Danny Todosychuk showcased himself well in the Vipers’ 2-1 overtime win over Westside Friday night at Wesbild. “Before the weekend, I wasn’t too happy with it (goaltending situation), but then Danny started playing really well,” said Williamson. SNAKE BITES: Vernon’s Stefan Schneider was a plus2 with four shots on net as the Vancouver Canucks iced the Calgary Flames 4-3 at the NHL Young Stars Tournament Monday in Penticton. The Canucks’ Nathan Longpre recorded two goals and assisted on Antoine Roussel’s OT winner just 16 seconds into the extra frame.

Excelsiors go four straight to claim Mann Cup title Black Press Sports
The beasts of the east proved too much for the best of the west. The Brampton Excelsiors doubled the Langley Thunder 6-3 in Game 5 of the Mann Cup championships Monday night to capture Canada’s senior A lacrosse title. The entire series was played at the Langley Events Centre. After dropping the opening game of the
best-of-seven series, the Excelsiors won the final four to record their 11th Mann Cup in the lacrosse organization’s 99-year history. It was also Brampton’s third title in the past four years as Ontario teams have now won six straight and eight of the past 10 Cups. Langley, featuring Vernon’s Brodie MacDonald in net, was making its first finals appearance. MacDonald, who made
39 stops Monday night, finished the series with a 6.36 goals against average and .839 save percentage. Brampton raced out to a 3-0 lead on goals from Zack Greer, Jarrett Davis and Kevin Ross. The Thunder came to life early in the second period with captain Matt Leveque getting the home side on the board 55 seconds into the frame. Alex Turner and Kyle

Bears brush back Maroons in exhibition Morning Star Staff
The AA Fulton Maroons bowed 34-14 to the AAA Mt. Boucherie Bears in pre-season high school football action Friday night at the Kelowna Apple Bowl. Mike Ochoa, on a 17-yard TD reception from Kyle Richardson, and Lucas Hofer, on a three-yard pass from Marshall Kazemir, accounted for the Maroons’ touchdowns. Matt Parlee rushed into the endzone for a twopoint conversion. “Despite the score, I was pleased with the way the boys played,” said Fulton head coach Mike Scheller. “Mt. Boucherie is a very good team, and they are simply better than us. They are a huge school with a lot of big athletes. “They are big and fast, and it was tough for us to match up against them. That being said, our kids played tough all game, and showed a ton of heart. There was zero quit in them all game,

Richardson completed eight of 16 passes for 68 yards, while Hofer carried four times for 28 yards and Richardson ran 10 times for 17 yards. Ochoa had four
catches for 45 yards, while Clay Mottus provided three catches for 14 yards. Hofer and Mark Wagner each produced eight tackles, while Ochoa had seven. Broden Romanovitch ran back a pick 27 yards, while Hofer ran back one interception for 22 yards and Matt Kane went three yards
on a third pick. “Offensive linemen Tyler Annesley and Clay Coles and guard Cody Lutes were tough all game for us,” said Scheller. Fulton hosts the Mt. Baker Wild of Cranbrook in exhibition play Saturday (2 p.m.) at Grahame Park. In the junior varsity
Jones jumpstarts Heat attack Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s Austin Jones scored the winner as the UBC Okanagan Heat grounded the Kwantlen Eagles 4-0 Sunday afternoon in Surrey. The Heat improved their Pacific Western Athletics Association (PACWEST) men’s soccer season record to 2-0-0. Mason Hampel, Thomas Simkins, and Dylan Abbott added goals in the second half. Jones, a Fulton grad, struck in the 35th minute. The Heat weren’t quite as sharp Saturday when they opened the season with a 2-1 win over the Douglas College Royals in New Westminster. “At times in the game they were worn and tired but we can get better in those aspects,” said Heat head coach Dante Zanatta. “I thought our application to defending today was a bit poor at times.” On Saturday, Andrew Pinguelo, a transfer student and former forward from Capilano University Blues, notched both Heat goals. Spencer Brown, a fifth-year keeper, made several key saves in earning the Heat’s Man of the Match, including a save off a penalty kick in the first half. Pinguelo’s first goal came in the 20th minute when a nice ball was played down the wing from Joe Gill onto the foot of Zach Donaldson-Hall, who crossed the ball, resulting in Pinguelo burying his first marker in the corner of the net. The Heat clung to the 1-0 lead for most of the second half before the Royals equalized in the 75th minute. The game finished with a flurry of action, but the Heat finished off the Royals with three minutes remaining as veteran midfielder Nicholas Johansen played a nice through ball that Pinguelo was able
to put away for his second of the game. The Heat will visit the Thompson Rivers Wolfpack Saturday in Kamloops. In women’s soccer, the UBCO Heat displayed their offensive prowess Saturday as they blanked Douglas College 5-0 in the regular-season opener. Rookie forward and Vernon product Kirsten Dodds, and second-year forward Marissa Klees, each supplied a pair of goals. Sophomore forward Lindsey Briggs added the other goal. The Heat were ignited in the 18th minute when Klees broke through the Royals midfield and rifled a shot into the top corner. Klees notched her second goal just two minutes later. With the Heat’s constant pressure they were rewarded when Dodds finished a ball that was laid off by Holly Wollmann to put the Heat up three goals at 30 minutes. Just before half time, the Heat broke through again when Dodds slotted the ball through to Briggs for a 4-0 lead. The second half was not as one-sided with both teams struggling to convert their chances. Dodds netted her second after a fantastic effort from midfielder Emily Braun. Co-captain Sabrina Gasparac earned the shutout. In Sunday’s match, the Heat brushed back Kwantlen 1-0 in Surrey. The Heat forwards created numerous scoring chances, including several attacks from Briggs, Dodds and Wollmann. Briggs scored in the 73rd minute and the Heat held off the pressing Eagles, who earned three corners and a dangerous free kick in the late going. Gasparac and the Heat’s backline were able to contain the Eagles.
game prior to the senior tilt, the Bears bounced the Maroons 34-0. Tye Kitzman completed six of 11 passes for 53 yards and one interception, while earning 26 yards on 10 touches. Davron Polok ran 20 yards on four carries, while Max Chapman had 18 yards on eight touches. Darrien Broomfield hauled in three catches for 26 yards. Trevor Feeney finished with seven tackles, while Brett Shaigec and Polok each collected five and Eric Braun had a pair against the big, physical Bears. “They overpowered us on both sides of the ball, and our lineman had trouble with them,” said Scheller. “It was the very first football game for a lot of our kids, and they got a taste of tough football first time out. The Jayvee coaching staff was really pleased
with the way our guys came out in the second half. They played much better, and became a little more confident in their abilities. “Defensively, Trevor Feeney works his butt off in practice and it shows on game day.
He gave us a great effort. Linebacker Brett Shaigec was solid in his debut, breaking up a couple of passes and tackling well.” The Maroons hosted the South Kam Titans Tuesday in pre-season play.

Sun defence sizzles Black Press Sports
KELOWNA – The Okanagan Sun got the second half of the B.C. Football Conference season off on the right foot with a convincing 42-7 win over the winless Chilliwack Huskers 42-7 Sunday afternoon at the Apple Bowl. The Sun (5-1) had not given up a point to the Huskers in the last 17 quarters and extended that streak to 19 by grabbing a 24-0 halftime lead. The Sun opened the scoring on a oneyard touchdown plunge from Steven Doege, a defensive lineman who was part of the team’s jumbo package and pounded in his first BCFC touchdown. Before the break, the Sun scored 90 seconds apart as quarterback Jeremy Mraovic hit Michael Friend with a 10-yard touchdown strike before Arman Bokitch found the end zone on an eightyard touchdown scamper. In the third quarter, the Huskers finally broke through the Sun and stopped their scoreless streak.

After a Sun fumble, defensive back Tanner Hamade rumbled 47 yards to paydirt for a Husker score. The Sun added two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Doege punched in a second touchdown from two yards out and Carson Park intercepted a pass and returned it 15 yards. Kicker Steven McFadyen hit field goals from 34 and 29 yards. “We were committed to run the football,” said new offensive coordinator Jay Christensen. It showed, as the Sun racked up 313 yards with Bokitch carrying 13 times for 104 yards and a TD. New fullback Evin Polack carried seven times for 72 yards and back-up Alex Bradley had an impressive five carries for 74 yards. Mraovic completed 11 of 22 passes for 131 yards and a TD. The Sun travel to Victoria on Saturday for a date with the Westshore Rebels at 7 p.m. The Sun hammered the Rebels 49-7 in Week 4 and the Rebels fell 52-8 to the unbeaten Vancouver Island Raiders last weekend.

It was a classic showdown between the heavyweights in the Okanagan Oldtimers 45+ Soccer League Monday night at Kettle Valley Park in Kelowna. The regular-season champion Kelowna IGA capped an undefeated campaign by drawing 2-2 with the second-place Vernon Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels in what many figure was a playoff final preview. IGA (20-0-2) opened the scoring with a Lionel Hoffman goal in the 10th minute. Camels’ defender John Gardner lost the corner ball in the sun and it struck him in the chest. Hoffman buried the loose ball from gimme range. The Humpbacks, who were missing four key starters, equalized 10 minutes later when defender Rob Parkin onetouched a Rob Hulstein corner at the side of the 18 and nailed a howitzer far corner for the goal of the match. The Camels went up in the 32nd minute when Al Betton converted a supreme chip over the keeper’s head after a series of one-touch passes involving Gord Howard, Hulstein and Ken Kranenborg. Geoff Greenwell blazed a shot past Camels’ keeper Dave Dutcher from six yards after a great Jim Kruiper feed to equalize in the 70th minute. IGA had several chances to finish off the game, including a missed penalty kick by Kruiper with Dutcher diving right to get a hand on the shot. Gardner and fellow defender Jim Mottus both stuck out their legs to stop shots from close range, while Dutcher made three or four stops on a wild scramble which ended with Dutcher taking a corker in the stomach and rolling over. Dutcher earned the Ramshorn Pub Man of the Match for the 17-3-2 Camels, who open the playoffs Monday night against seventh-place Okanagan Spring. Wendy’s Baconator Man of the Match
Mike Lloyd scored twice and set up two others as Okanagan Spring bounced Pushor Mitchell 5-2 at Marshall Field #5. Three minutes in, Bob Fleming set up Lloyd, who found the top corner of the net. Jeff Vest clicked on a penalty kick three minutes later after Lloyd was taken down in the box. Early in the second half, Tom Ouchi made it 3-0 from Lloyd, and then Lloyd scored from Denis Chabot. Ouchi got his second of the game to make it 5-0 with 15 minutes left. Steve Fitzpatrick earned the Newcastle Brown Ale Man of the Match with two goals as Silver Stars toppled the Rutland Spirit 3-1 at Marshall #2. New English striker Gary Saunders found himself all alone at the 25-yard line with the Rutland keeper Dave Gould off his line and he looped a shot under the crossbar and in after just 20 seconds had elapsed. Saunders injured his groin a few minutes later and headed home. Three minutes later, Fitzpatrick turned and tucked a shot short side from the 18. Seven minutes later, Fitzpatrick riverdanced around a few defenders and fooled Gould with a cheeky chip shot to make it 3-0. Rutland scored early in the second half on a penalty shot, awarded when Fitzpatrick pulled down a Spirit player. Keeper Ted Lurkins got his fingertips on the attempt. Later in the half, Fitzpatrick sent a poor back pass to Lurkins, who pulled the onrushing Spirit striker down by the leg and then made a dazzling back heel save to deflect the penalty shot over the bar. Big O Tire Ogopogos just missed securing the eighth and final playoff spot by falling 1-0 to Brandt’s Creek Pub at Parkinson 16 Field. Big O keeper Paul Hunter stopped two of three penalty kicks to earn the
Longhorn Man of the Match. Brandt’s Creek and Big O both finished at 8-12-2. Greg Bevandick and Fritz Berenyi each pulled hat-tricks as North Country Appraisals Kickers crushed Cantina’s 8-2 in Rutland.
Sirius strikes late In 35+ men’s play, the Vernon Square Liqour Store Celtics bowed 2-1 to Kelowna Sirius FC at Mission 74 Sports Field. The fast-paced game seemed destined to end in a draw when miscommunication in Vernon’s defence allowed Sirius (11-5-3) to score the winning goal in the final second of the game. The first half was well balanced with both teams finding it hard to create chances. The 8-9-2 Celtics’ defence was outstanding with Burger King Man-ofthe-Match Ryan Leibel clearing everything that came close to the 18-yard box. The second half continued on the same note until the Kelowna referee rewarded a penalty kick to Sirius after their forward Morgan Marss tangled with Celtics’ Jason Beck. Sirius converted the penalty but a minute later the Celtics equalized when Kriss Yargeau controlled the ball in midfield and despite a melee of opponents, managed to send a through ball to Bryan Schenker. Schenker made no mistake in front of the goal and recorded his 25th of the season. The result leaves the Celtics in a mustwin situation next week for a playoff fixture. Host Salmon Arm shut down Vernon’s Bosman Accounting 2-0, scoring off a free kick and a long shot that accidentally landed in the back of the net. The Bosman defensive line with Shawn Wiebe, Greg Sol, Mike Gilman and anchor Nathan Bartel had a strong game in front of a solid keeper Guy Paulsen.

People under the siege of narcotics addiction can find help if they just open the door to treatment. or relapses. They might need to go back to stage four and do more work. Maybe there are mental health or other health issues to deal with. People put a lot of work into maintenance,” said MacDougall. He said not everyone needs residential treatment and that there is often work to be done to be ready for residential treatment, including, for some people, moving from the area and people who influence
them to use. Others need to detoxify. There is a medically supervised detox outpatient program at Crossroads. People who are addicted to opiates, alcohol and prescription drugs need medical supervision to detox because they are at risk for seizures and heart problems. People come to Crossroads by applying directly, or through referrals from mental health professionals.

This is the last story in a three-part series about narcotics addiction.
Some people come for addictions treatment because they want to be there, others are there because someone is encouraging them and some come because they have to. “Most people are here because they are ready to make a change and others are here as a condition of parole or to get their kids back, but I think everyone gets something out of it. People help each other and learn from each other,” said Gerry MacDougall, clinical director, Crossroads Integrated Addictions Services in Kelowna. The residential program, which is presently at 28 days, will be expanding to 42 days. There is always a wait list of between four and six weeks for the Interior Healthfunded centre. Pregnant women are given priority to help the child, then clients in the Interior Health area and, third, people outside the region if there are beds available. Crossroads is run by a non-profit society with funding from Interior Health, private insurance plans or paid for privately by clients. Crossroads has 38 men’s beds, with 24 of them government funded, and 20 women’s beds, with 12 government funded. MacDougall said people with addictions will get help at different stages depending on their support systems. Many see their family doctor first or a counselor at Alcohol and Drug Services for a free assessment. The assessment is done in the community and helps people decide if they should go to a day program, have one-on-one counseling, or attend a group. “The first stage is denial where people will say they don’t really have a problem,” he said. “In the pre-contemplative stage, they might think, ‘maybe I have a problem but it’s no big deal, I can handle it on my own.’ This is the time to talk about how they would handle it and maybe why they are using. By the contemplative stage, they will think, ‘I’ve got a problem. I need help.’” The fourth stage is the action stage where people will seek help by going to a doctor or counselor or to a 12-step program or rehabilitation. “By the fifth, or maintenance stage, they have done the work but there can be slips

Landon Colvin has been working on his book, Spirit Wolf, since last September. “I went for a walk around the neighbourhood with my mother and we talked about what I could do and the book came out of that. I always liked wolves, they fascinate me. So I decided to write about wolves. I like dogs and wolves are dogs in the wild,” said the 10-yearold Beairsto Elementary Grade 6 student, who was inspired by Nancy Yi Fan, a 12-year-old American student who wrote Swordbird. Spirit Wolf took eight months to write and Colvin admits to having a couple of months of writers’ block. “It was going to be my greatgrandpa’s 92nd birthday and I wanted to give it to him so I got writing again. He really liked it,” he said. Colvin’s parents, JC Colvin and Shelley Zupp, had Spirit Wolf published for him for his birthday. He imagines wolves in the mountains near Vernon where the north and south packs must battle for territory and to recover a stolen pup. The wolf characters have their own personalities, motives, relationships and concerns. Some surprising alliances are made as the story moves to a thoughtful and surprising conclusion. “I did a lot of research about wolves, about how they would live and behave. It feels like these guys are real and I want to go and meet them,” he said. “It was really exciting to see the book. We gave the first copies to family and friends and then other people were wanting to read it so we had to get more copies made. Adults like it too.” He is planning to write a sequel to Spirit Wolf to see what his characters do next. Colvin will give half of the proceeds from the sale of the book to Jerseys for Africa, an organization

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.
