though they are working with their bank to be reimbursed. “When the data was obtained from the PIN pad transaction, a clone was made of their debit card,” explained Molendyk. “The trojan terminal stored the data from the magnetic strip on their cards, and also stored their PIN number.” One person thought things were suspicious enough that they changed their bank card number before any money actually came out of their account. Wireless terminals are used by legitimate businesses such as pizza delivery, taxi companies and by
companies like Rocky Mountain Marketing, who raise funds in the North Okanagan-Shuswap for Crime Stoppers. The woman who came to one resident’s door was wearing a shirt that Molendyk said had some indication it was related to the charity, but the woman never presented identification. Police and bank security are now asking residents to check their bank accounts regularly and report any unauthorized activity. “It appears the individual has moved on but police and bank security are still working on the case,” said Molendyk.

The suspect involved in the case of a stolen outhouse from a Lumby sawmill has been sentenced to jail. Provincial court judge Jim Threlfall sentenced Robert Andel, 54, of Vancouver, to nine months in jail for two counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000. A log outhouse valued at $1,900 was reported stolen from Rouck Brothers Sawmill on Highway 6 near Lumby Sept. 26. In October, Lumby RCMP received word that the outhouse was located on a Lavington property in the 6700 block of Highway 6. As police arrived on the scene to check out the outhouse, a man was located in a pick-up truck and attempted to flee from police. He was arrested after a short chase. Police determined the pick-up had been stolen from Richmond in February, and the suspect was the focus of an arrest warrant for a November 2009 robbery in Kelowna. The suspect had been living, with permission, on the Lavington property, but police believed the 35-foot holiday trailer he was residing in may have been stolen. A 25-foot storage trailer and a flat-deck trailer were also on the Lavington site.

News Strong support in fight against cancer JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
The legacy of Terry Fox is growing in Vernon. Upwards of 350 people came out to carry on the tradition since Fox first stepped foot on his Marathon of Hope 31 years ago. All of the walkers, runners, moms with strollers, dog owners and cyclists at Coldstream Elementary also dug deep for cancer research and raised $10,482. â€œThatâ€™s actually up over last year as well which is awesome to hear because the weather wasnâ€™t all that great,â€? said run organizer Tania Mund, of a cold and windy run day. â€œBut people still came out and showed their support for the Terry Fox Run, which is great.â€? Participants got in the groove with a Zumba warm-up, the Vernon Vipers were on hand to energize the crowd and NATALIA VIGNOLA/MORNING STAR with the support of volunteers and local busi- Marisa Wiebe and Abby eagerly await nesses, the day shaped the start of the Terry Fox Run Sunday at up to be a fun family Coldstream Elementary School. affair. â€œIt makes for a great event and another successful year for the run,â€? said Mund, who organized her last run as she passes the torch on for next year. â€œWe really appreciate the support of the community.â€?

Electrical device linked to house fire RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A quick-thinking Coldstream resident prevented a fire from roaring through their home. Occupants of a home on Postill Drive shut off the power as they were fleeing what they believed to be an electrical fire Sunday just before 3 p.m. â€œThat pretty much saved the house because that cut power off to the air exchanger,â€? said fire chief
Dave Sturgeon, adding that the exchange is the most likely source of the blaze. However, there was still the potential for the fire to spread. â€œWhen we arrived, there was billowing black smoke coming from under the eaves,â€? said Sturgeon. â€œAnother two to five minutes Dave Sturgeon and it could have become a structure fire.â€? Damage was done to one wall
as well as some siding, while there was smoke damage inside the house. One of the occupants was taken to hospital with smoke inhalation after he entered the home to get his pets. As a result of this fire, residents are being encouraged to check their furnaces and air exchangers and make sure filters are not plugged. â€œIt wasnâ€™t allowing for enough air draw to cool the motor down and it over-heated,â€? said Sturgeon of the air exchanger in the Postill Drive home.

Lakefront property sells for $7.5 million RICHARD ROLKE
This property in Lake Country has sold for $7.5 million, making it the largest residential transaction ever in the North Okanagan.
Morning Star Staff
It’s the sale real estate agents dream about. A four-bedroom Lake Country home has sold for $7.5 million — the largest transaction ever for a single-family residence in the North Okanagan. “They are out-oftown buyers who spend their summers in the Okanagan,” said David Pusey, an agent with Century 21 Executives Realty in Vernon. “They are attracted to the beauty of the property but they also considered it to be of good value.” This is the third largest residential sale ever in the entire Okanagan Valley. The 4,500-squarefoot home sits on eight

The biggest selling card is 1,400 feet of frontage along Okanagan Lake in the Carr’s Landing area. “It’s one of the most beautiful pieces of prop-
erty I have ever seen,” said Pusey. “The property is immaculate. It’s like a park.” The property — owned by the seller’s family for years — had only been listed for a
short time. Others had looked at it besides the new owner. “There are buyers for these kinds of properties,” said Pusey. “It’s challenging to find exceptional lakefront land.”
MP calls for decorum in Parliament It’s back to business in Ottawa, including partisan politics. Colin Mayes, Okanagan-Shuswap MP says opposition parties used Monday’s start of the fall session as a way to resume attacks on the Conservative government. “There were a few balls of mud thrown across the floor on old issues that aren’t relevant and on new issues like the use of government aircraft,” he said. Mayes says all parties must remain focused on issues of Colin Mayes importance to Canadians and constant fighting takes away from legitimate debate. “If the opposition wants to talk about decorum, they need to research issues. They need to do their homework.” Mayes anticipates much of the fall session will revolve around the government’s election promises on scrapping the long-gun registry and getting tough on crime. While statistics indicate the crime rate has dropped across the country in recent years, Mayes insists there is a need to take action to alleviate the fears of law-abiding citizens. “We want to protect victims and hold criminals accountable,” he said. “With some areas of crime, the numbers are down but violent crime among young people is not going down. We have a mandate to protect the most vulnerable — our children.” The fall session also sees the NDP moving into
official opposition without leader Jack Layton, who died this summer. Mayes says he won’t speculate on how the NDP will adapt, but he admits that it’s an issue of concern for many constituents. “It will be interesting to see how the NDP moulds themselves with their new seats in Quebec and where they will go with leadership,” he said. A local issue that Mayes will focus on during the fall session is the forest sector and expanding opportunities for sales and jobs. “If we can open up new trade markets, that is vital to the industry. We are starting to open up markets in India,” he said.

There’s speculation that an announcement on funding could occur during the ceremonial opening of the new tower, tentatively set for Oct. 13. However, Foster says he’s not been provided with any information about a potential announcement. “Nobody has come out and said no we’re not going to do it,” he said. Patients will be moved from the existing hospital facility to the new Polson tower Sunday.

and being a positive force, and we thank the people of this North Okanagan region for being a strong voice and taking steps towards helping improve their health care. We still need to keep this pressure on.” Cunningham is urging residents to continue to place pressure on the government for more beds. “It is their vast voice calling to this government for help, to do the right thing, and complete the top two floors,” he said.

some are worried they will be rental units or they will impose rules on the area,” he said. “But there are really nice neighbourhoods in other communities that are high-density.” Acton is convinced the development could help Lumby’s economy by retaining and attracting residents. “A lot of young families want affordable housing. This is one way to do it,” he said. The rezoning and official community plan amendments will be the focus of a public information meeting Thursday at 7 p.m. at the village office. “If anyone has concerns about the development, they should be there,” said Mindnich. An official public hearing is also scheduled for Oct. 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the village office and Acton insists council has made no decision on the development. “People need to want it for us to do it,” he said.

Families uneasy over relocation JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
It took Wendy Cuddeback’s autistic daughter four years to get adjusted and comfortable in her group home. And now she is being forced to do it all over again. “The government wants to sell the house and all the kids have to move,” said Cuddeback, gathered outside VernonMonashee MLA Eric Foster’s office Tuesday with other concerned family members and staff of group homes. Eight developmentally disabled adults living in the Spartan House in the BX and the Kalview Group Home in Coldstream are slated for relocation. Along with the stress of moving, staff and families are concerned residents will be taken from their familiar group home settings, of which some have been in for more than 20 years, and forced into smaller settings. “My daughter needs a group home,” said Cuddeback. “My daughter needs this group home.

Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster listens to concerns Tuesday from caregivers and family members of individuals with developmental disabilities who are being relocated from their group homes. B.C., the government funding body for the homes, confirms that residents will be relocated to new homes in the Vernon area due to concerns about the physical structure of the existing homes. But CLBC insists no one will be forced out of the group setting. “If they’re wanting to explore a non-group home situation we would like to honour that choice,” said Lynn Middleton, CLBC director of regional operations for the Interior. “What we’re looking at is what works for the individual.” But having worked with these individuals for years, staff at the homes don’t believe they will do well in a smaller setting. “They’re not qualified, these people that are in the home sharing,” said Vivian Morris of some more intimate settings. “These people need Depends changed,
they need their pills. “We are qualified and we can deal with their behaviours and we can deal with their needs.” Listening to the concerns of staff and families in his office Tuesday, MLA Foster heard their message loud and clear. “Based on what I heard this morning...the people are much better off in a group home than anywhere else,” said Foster, adding that he will be taking their concerns to the government this week. There are also concerns that staff at the homes could lose their jobs. CLBC operates a contract with an organization that employs the staff. Middleton confirmed that CLBC is not changing its contracts with the firm. A timeline has not been established for the move since the homes need to be sold first.
Tip leads police to suspect ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
An alert citizen helped put an end to an alleged theft-from-vehicle spree in a Bella Vista neighbourhood. The citizen noticed a young man sneaking around the neighbourhood Monday in the 2900 block of Richfield Drive, off of Heritage Drive, at 12:40 a.m. with a backpack and called police. When officers arrived, they located a 17-year-old man with a backpack in the area. A check of the backpack revealed numerous items stolen from
as many as 10 vehicles in the area. “This is a case of the good citizens in our community noticing something and not passing it off,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “They noticed some unusual activity in the area and called us.” Molendyk said a lot of the vehicles were either left open or their windows were open enough for a suspect to gain access. The teenager was arrested, then released on a promise to appear in court. He is expected to face charges at a later date.

reoccurring question these days revolves around Vernon’s mayor, Wayne Lippert. Specifically, people are wondering if he will be back to car repairs after Nov. 19’s election or if he will win a third term, tying him with another Wayne (McGrath) as the city’s longest-serving mayor in its almost 120year history. Speculation is extremely difficult because it’s hard to know how voters will react when they head to the polls or what issues, if any, will motivate them. Richard Rolke But what could work in Lippert’s favour is this year appears to be shaping up to be a repeat of the last two civic elections. In his first run for mayor in 2005, Lippert is among four individuals on the ballot. Only 592 votes separate him from second place and the difference between first and fourth spot is 968. If there were fewer candidates splitting the vote, Lippert may not have come out on top. Fast-forward to 2008, and Lippert is up against five other candidates, including a wellknown councillor and social advocate and the spokesperson for an attention-grabbing group critical of city hall. For there to be a half-sack of names on the ballot is unprecedented, and obviously an indication that not all is well in Vernon. There are some questioning the leadership of the last three years. However, the numbers, once again, work in his favour. Lippert is returned to office in a squeaker, with just 365 votes separating him and secondplace Juliette Cunningham. Had any of the next three candidates not been there, Lippert

may have stalled at a one-termer and been sent off to consider his career options. Lippert admits he was sent a wake-up call. “I’m happy I won. I wish the margin was larger but I made it,” he says. “I will have to work harder to make sure those who didn’t vote for me are included.” Lippert has never faced a one-on-one challenge. With a congested ballot and votesplitting each time, he was able to prevail while never capturing an overwhelming majority (36.92 per cent in 2008 and 31.59 per cent in 2005). In comparison, Sean Harvey became the new mayor in 1999 with 60 per cent of the votes in a three-person race. In 2002, Harvey was back with 64 per cent of the votes over one other. Go back to 1996, and the other Wayne (McGrath) won a third term in a lop-sided victory — 83.5 per cent support — over a councillor. I mentioned earlier that history could be on Lippert’s side this November and that appears to be the case. Already Rob Sawatzky, a retired physician, has thrown his hat into the ring, and two other individuals have taken out nomination packages although they haven’t announced their intentions yet. That means there could possibly be at least four names on the ballot. Such a scenario could favour Lippert again. Of course politics are fluid and just because there was a pattern in 2005 and 2008 doesn’t mean it will continue this time around. Lippert has six years under his belt and while there have been some achievements, not everyone is enthusiastic with the direction the city has taken. Lippert will have to campaign if he wants to earn the title of longest-serving mayor, but the task may be a whole lot easier if he’s a face in the crowd.
There’s nothing like an earthquake to shake us, at least briefly, out of complacency. Everybody from the Fraser Valley to Cape Scott was talking about the Sept. 9 6.4-magnitude quake south of Port Alice because so many felt or witnessed its effects. It was followed by a smaller quake a few days later. Vancouver Island continues to creep toward the coast of the B.C. mainland. The Juan de Fuca Plate is the smallest of Earth’s tectonic plates, subducting, or sliding underneath, the North American Plate. The force that builds when the two plates have been stuck for some time is released in an earthquake when the plates move suddenly. It’s not comforting to know that what we think is rocksolid Vancouver Island rests on a plate that is on top of what is called the mantle, which in turn floats on an underground ocean of molten, superheated rock called magma. Another disquieting thought involves the most powerful quake ever recorded on Canadian soil, which happened just west of Courtenay in 1946. We can’t do anything to control or even accurately predict when the next quake will happen, but there are things we can do to be prepared when it does. The Provincial Emergency Program website – www.pep. bc.ca – has a wealth of helpful information. Foremost is being prepared to survive for at least 72 hours without help. While it’s tricky to educate your children without scaring them, PEP recommends developing a post-quake plan and discussing it with your family. It’s easy to think it won’t happen to us, but that’s what people in the Comox Valley thought before 1946. – Black Press

EDITOR: GLENN MITCHELL
Hospital situation needs help now
would like to add my voice to the many who are extremely concerned at the overcrowding at our Vernon Jubilee Hospital. It was alarming and saddening to be a patient there recently. I came in with a broken shoulder but was placed after surgery in the maternity ward for post-op care where the nurses were too busy with the post-partum care and lacked knowledge to care for a recovering orthopedic surgery patient. I was angry, but I was more angry at the patients I saw trying to deal with recovery parked in a bed in a hallway. To regain health, a person must have rest. I don't think hallway beds are conducive to rest. As well, the staff, while being kind and considerate and as helpful as could be under the circumstances, were clearly overworked, called in on their days off to cover shifts of other nurses who had to go on sick leave to deal with the stress of the working conditions. Daily the hospital in running at over capacity. Your constituency has grown Mr. Foster, perhaps you have not noticed? How could it be that while we have raised funds to build a tower of care and equip it,
OH CANADA Citizens of Canada please consider this when you go across the line to shop. I bet many of those that cannot wait to go across the border to shop are the ones who stand up and shout buy Canadian and we are not part of the United States of America. But you might just as well be. By doing this you are possibly putting Canadians out of work. Does this sound right? I think it is backwards, we should be trying to give our children and loved ones a job. When you cross the border you are buying American which means made anywhere in the world where it is cheaper. We lose secondary jobs: trucking, banking, warehousing. How would you feel if it was one of your children or family member who loses their job and hopefully not go on welfare? They should make everything that you buy taxable including the gas you use to support their economy. We should only be allowed to bring back $750 once a year total. This would mean we would have
we still lack beds? How can it be that we need to have fundraisers to build and equip our Tower of Care for Vernon Jubilee Hospital, when millions are spent for the roof of B.C. Place? I think we should be fundraising for this type of venue for our entertainment needs and our elected government should be providing the necessary funds for the badly needed hospital space and care here in Vernon. I read in the paper that you are concerned and that you are looking into it.
to hire more border guards but the monies they save should pay for them. They are building more big box stores across the border. Why? To get more Canadians to come down and spend our hard-earned money in their American stores. It seems that the only places in the States that are moving forward are the ones by the borders and in major tourist cities. I think it is time, like Warren Buffet stated, that the rich should start paying their way and put a luxury tax on big ticketed items. Garry Haas THANK YOU I was a pedestrian on a scooter that got hit on the sidewalk on 27th Avenue and the 4800 block Aug. 20 at around 6 p.m. I want to thank the response team, ambulance and all those that helped, but especially the older couple that calmed my granddaughter and were so wonderful for us. Also there was a young man that I asked his name but due to shock, cannot remember what he said his
But sir if you would pay attention to what your voters are saying, you would know that we have been in this sorry state of overcrowding... over capacity, beds in hallways, lack of surgery available, for a few years now. As my surgery has failed because of the severeness of my injury, I am at home now and in much pain daily waiting for a shoulder replacement surgery. I am told there are approximately 200 patients ahead of me. Then I am told that surgeries have been put on hold at Vernon Jubilee Hospital while
name was. He held my head and hand and assisted in keeping me still and comfortable until medical attention arrived. I want to commend the wonderful group that worked as a well-trained team including the civilians. Sharon Mix HOSPITAL WOES Frankly I am sick to death of opening each issue of The Morning Star only to read how VJH's empty floors need to have beds in them and about the code purples that happen at regular intervals at VJH. If there ever was a huge accident, there would be no place to put victims. People are sleeping in hallways as it is. Wake up people. How many letters can you write and how many of your letters can government ignore? Instead of writing letter after letter after letter to The Morning Star only to fall on deaf ears, isn't it time legislation was changed so that governments would have an obligation to listen to the people that government is supposed to serve?
we transfer to the new addition...And then finally I am told that there are two empty floors that are shelled in that cannot be used until funding is found. Mr. Foster I find this unbelievable! Preposterous! Unacceptable! Will we have to hold another bake sale to get the two floors open so that I and other people can access the care that we need desperately here in the North Okanagan? I know that I am not the only citizen in this situation. I recently heard of a gentleman who has been waiting 58 weeks for a hip replacement! There are many others as well. I am sure you have heard from some of them. Will that be me a year from now? Painfully, helplessly waiting for a date for surgery, praying it won't be cancelled. We are upset with you Eric Foster. Do you represent the people of your constituency? You will not have my vote in the next election nor a great many others if you do not intercede on our behalf. We will vote with our feet. Please show us that our elected faith in you has not been wasted. Kara Barkved
Why don't we start a petition to that effect? Why wait for election time, when there hasn't been a government that will listen yet? There is no use in wasting more time and energy so that more people can suffer the ill effects of how government is permitted to run over people like a bulldozer. VJH lack of beds isn't the only issue now is it? Sharon Schnurr PLANE'S RETURN Congratulations to Mr. Fletcher and others who repaired and recently reinstalled the replica fighter plane at the Vernon ANAVETS club. There's a reason these folks are known as the greatest generation. They were prepared to give all and they continue to give to build and to make our community better. How very sad for the ones who find some short-lived thrill damaging and destroying. They don't know the long-term satisfaction that comes from building something or contributing to their own community. Ernest Hughes

2011 GENERAL LOCAL ELECTIONS NOTICE OF NOMINATION PUBLIC NOTICE is given to the electors of the District of Coldstream that nomination for the of¿ces of: Mayor – One (1) person to be elected Councillor – Six (6) people to be elected will be received by the Chief Election Of¿cer or a designated person at 9901 Kalamalka Road, Coldstream, BC, as follows: October 4, 2011 - 9:00 am to October 14, 2011 - 4:00 pm Excluding Statutory holidays and weekends Nomination documents are available at the Municipal Hall located at 9901 Kalamalka Road, Coldstream, BC during regular business hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Statutory Holidays.
QUALIFICATIONS FOR OFFICE A person is quali¿ed to be nominated, elected, and to hold of¿ce as a member of local government if they meet the following criteria: • Canadian citizen; • 18 years of age or older; • resident of British Columbia for at least 6 months immediately before the day nomination papers are ¿led; and • not disquali¿ed by the Local Government Act or any other enactment from voting in an election in British Columbia or from being nominated for, being elected to, or holding of¿ce. **

Navigating red tape has been simplified for North Okanagan loggers, farmers and miners. A FrontCounter BC service has been opened at the Ministry of Forests office at 2501 14th Ave. in Vernon. It will provide permits and information for the natural resource sector. “It’s a one-stop shop,” said Eric Foster, VernonMonashee MLA, adding that presently, someone seeking a permit may have to go to multiple offices. “You may have to go to Kelowna or Kamloops or have to call or e-mail someone. This will make a huge difference for people in the resource industry.” FrontCounter BC provides more than 130 natural resource-related permits and authorizations, and it represents 16 additional partner agencies. “It provides a single point of entry for people dealing with the natural resource sector,” said Steve Thomson, forests, lands and natural resource operations minister. “Water authorizations to irrigation licenses can be dealt with through a single process. It saves time and it saves effort for them.” Vernon is the 19th FrontCounter office in the province. “The North Okanagan has a wide range of resource activities. It is seen as a community that will benefit (from the new service),” said Thomson. “It was a natural community to have on the list.”
THIS IS THE SECOND OF THREE PUBLICATIONS
Thomson says the process will lead to no staff cuts within the government, and there will be some additional clerical demands at the Vernon office. “It’s about integrating the staff resources.” Local officials expect the FrontCounter service could help stimulate the economy. “Any time you can cut red tape is a plus for us in the North Okanagan,” said Vernon Mayor Wayne Lippert.
Coldstream assault leads to jail time ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A provincial court judge has sentenced a man to jail time for his role in a Coldstream assault in July. Paul Edward Lyons was sentenced by Judge Robin Smith to three years in jail on one count of aggravated assault. Lyons was also sentenced to one year in jail for each of two counts of assault with a weapon, and another six months in jail for a charge of assault. However, the last three counts will be served
concurrently with the aggravated assault time. Crown counsel stayed five other charges against Lyons in connection with an incident off Buchanan Road on July 26. RCMP officers responded at 8:20 p.m. that night to a domestic assault. Three people were beaten with a baseball bat by a man known to all three. The victims – two women and a man – suffered bruises to their legs, arms, torsos and face. One of the women required surgery to repair a broken arm.

vison at McLeod Road and Highway 97A. “Installing this light is taking a first and valuable step towards improving that intersection,” said Spallumcheen Mayor Will Hansma. The intersection has long been an issue for residents of the subdivision. Many have called for a traffic light to be installed there as the intersection has had its share of accidents, including at Will Hansma least one fatality. A number of residents have also expressed concern for safety when trying to make a left-hand turn onto Highway 97A, or waiting to make a left turn into the subdivision off the highway. Ministry of Transportation officials will be on hand Thursday as the light is officially opened at a public ceremony. The event will take place Thursday at 11 a.m. at the intersection, and the public is invited to attend.

A tradition of learning CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
A r m s t r o n g Elementary School, commonly known as the Brick School, provides a modern education for its students but it never forgets its traditions. Students, staff, parents and former teachers and students recently celebrated the school’s 90th birthday with a look back and a picnic and cake. The school, which brought together students from seven rural schools around the area, opened Sept. 6, 1921 and was the first consolidated school in B.C. “This school is very near and dear to my heart. I went to this school. My dad, uncle and my children went here, I taught here and now I’m back as principal,” said Jodi van der Meer. Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper remembered attending the school in the 1950s. “The hill to slide on and the wooded area are still there and they are still doing the maypole dance like we did.I’m
looking forward to the 100th birthday,” he said. Spallumcheen Mayor Will Hansma asked the audience to reflect on all the people who have attended the school and the contributions they have made locally and further from home. School district superintendent Dave Witt recalled how his family used to live across from the school and that he heard a story that in the 1940s there were maple trees that were tapped for syrup on the school grounds. Grade 5 students Sarah Holman and Hannah Zandvliet read a history of the school. Many area families have had at least three generations attend the school. Grade 1 teacher Heather Ramsey is in her 33rd year at the school she attended and where her mother Mabel Louttit was a student and long-time teacher, and her own children attended. “I remember the wonderful playground and playing house with pine cones at recess as a student.

The school originally had a slate roof and when that was changed pieces of slate were saved and retiring teachers got a piece signed by their co-workers. Helen Sidney started teaching at AES in 1943, took a few years off to have her children, and retired in 1988. “I often taught two generations of a family. It’s wonderful here today to see so many of them coming to me to say hello,” she said. “When I started, the boys and girls came in by separate doors and there was a wood furnace.

old! Gold! Gold! It seems like thatâ€™s all you hear about nowadays, but with good reason. â€œItâ€™s a modern day gold rushâ€?, says Roadshow expert Kevin Duncan. â€œEver since the recession hit in 2008, thereâ€™s been a major shift in economic stability. Precious metals have seen a tremendous rise in value, with gold trading at record prices and silver climbing close to where it used to be in the early 1980â€™s.â€? Here at the Roadshow weâ€™ve noticed an enormous increase in the amount of gold scrap, gold jewelry, gold coins, silver scrap, silver jewelry, and silver coins that have come into our showrooms. Gold scrap has single-handedly been the most seen item at the Roadshow in the past 12 months. All types of broken jewelry, missing earrings, charm bracelets, and anything JROGWKDWÂśVFROOHFWLQJGXVWVKRXOGGHÂżQLWHO\ be brought into the Roadshow!

Along with his golden teeth, Dr. Adams brought in some of his wifeâ€™s broken and unused jewelry, and was able to walk out of the Roadshow with over $8,000! Not bad for a jar of old teeth and broken necklaces! During a time where the average household income is living from paycheck to paycheck, now is the best time to come into the Roadshow and exchange some of the old or broken jewelry thatâ€™s just sitting around in your drawer, and get paid on the spot for it!
See you at the Roadshow!

What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a popular treatment that can even be done on your lunch break! A solution is applied to the skin and works by dissolving the upper layers which stimulates cell renewal revealing new, healthy cells and smoother, brighter skin. It is an effective treatment for correcting acne, age spots, ﬁne lines and will improve the skin’s tone and texture. The depth of the peel varies based on the strength of the solution used and how long it is applied. We also have a solution speciﬁc for use on the body to treat areas such as the chest or back. Peels can even be used in combination with some of our other treatments to increase their efﬁcacy. Chemical peels are a great way to improve dull, damaged skin from the summer sun and the overall health of the skin through exfoliation. Come in and talk to us and see how your skin can beneﬁt from a chemical peel.
Will my child’s teacher recommend a tutoring center for my child?
Very likely not. The teachers’ union has a strong criteria on that. At the possible cost of his job, a teacher is not supposed to recognize, recommend, comment on, or refer students to any program that is not part of the school district. It is therefore up to the parents to ﬁnd a tutor if they think their child needs one. Where do you look? • Search the Yellow pages under ‘tutoring’ • Google ‘tutoring Vernon BC’ to ﬁnd options • Ask you friends if they know of a good tutor • Talk to other parents of children in your child’s school • Read “Ask the Expert” or other newspaper ads • Go to www.vernondeals.ca and check under ‘tutoring’, or read their editorials. When your child works hard at school, but still struggles, it’s time for some extra help so he can succeed.

Can Hypnotherapy help with chronic pain?
Yes, Hypnosis can be a very effective technique for pain control. In Great Britain, Hypnosis is used for some surgical procedures instead of anesthesia. It is also good for Dental pain (or phobia). Hypnosis allows the body to relax and this helps to lower the pain. Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, and other chronic pain can be helped with Hypnotherapy. Mind - Body Counselling Services

C ENTRES S OLUTIONS
My kids are back in school and are already coming home with congestion and coughs. What can I do to keep them healthy?
The transition back to school can be exciting and stressful. In addition to the close proximity of so many children there is an adjustment getting back into sleep routines and regular eating habits. Sleep: Get your kids back into a regular sleep routine so they can get the rest they need and recover from the new busier schedule. Reduce stress: Discuss any worry or anxiety they may be feeling about new classes, teachers and friends. Cortisol (a stress hormone) reduces our immune response and interferes with healing. Hand washing: Make sure they are washing their hands before they eat at school and when they get home from school. This will help minimize their exposure. Vitamin C: This vitamin stimulates the immune system and enhances antibody response. Dosage is based on age and bowel tolerance. Vitamin D: This vitamin boosts the immune system and has been shown to reduce severity of infections when taken on a regular basis. Homeopathic Immune Booster: This natural ﬂu shot (given as drops under the tongue in children) will support their body’s natural immune response to all viruses and reduce severity of the ﬂu. For more information on these suggestions and our Cold and Flu Prevention Program, please call, come in or check out our new website!

WRONG! However, your bank is not going to contact you to let you know that you could be saving money. That is why you need to be proactive and have a professional analyze your unique situation. Often times it makes sense to break your current mortgage to make you ﬁnancially better off. I can sit down with you at your convenience (for free), and calculate that. Then you will know without a doubt, whether you could be saving money. Be proactive, it’s your ﬁnances and your wellbeing! Call me.
What is a Professional Home Organizer?
Home Inspector Personal
Can feng shui improve my health?
Yes! There may be a disease that runs through your family, but that doesn’t mean you will develop it. When I feng shui a home, I can see the probability of events occurring and can mediate the situation to direct its path. Together with your birth information I can see the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘where’ and ‘when’. If you know something’s coming your way, you can be better prepared to handle it: it’s being blindsided that takes most of us down. Check out my recent blog “Mammogram” and you’ll see that yearly checkups can be very interesting. Want to stay healthy? Then be proactive, not reactive. You deserve a life full of health and happiness, so together let’s make that happen.
2009 Busines/Professional s of the Year Award!
I have heard that drywall imported from China is contaminated and making people sick, what do you know about it?
What is known so far about contaminated drywall from China is this. The drywall was imported from China between 2001 and 2007. Research shows that some may have landed in the prairies and some in the Toronto area and possibly the lower mainland of B.C. The drywall was made using gypsum that was ﬁrst used in slurry containing carcinogens to de-sulphur coal. The chemicals remaining in the drywall are toxic enough that as few as three sheets can contaminate a home to the point it may need to be bulldozed. This drywall is found to emit toxic hydrogen sulﬁde gas as well as other sulﬁde gases. These gases are alleged to cause health conditions and illnesses, such as headaches, dizziness, and shortness of breath, eye irritations, insomnia and respiratory issues. The indications in homes are blackened, scorched wiring behind switch plates and wall plugs, it causes air conditioning coils to fail, computer wiring to become faulty as well as damage to the wiring of other appliances. Some have noted the smell of sulphur in the home. So far none has turned up in the Okanagan that I am aware of. However do your homework; if you are doing renovations or building new, ﬁnd out where your drywall was made before you purchase or install it. Remember, when in doubt ask an expert.

EDITOR: KRISTIN FRONEMAN
Actress’ portrait ages gracefully KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
Dorianne Kohl still remembers the creak of the floorboards as she stepped inside the old community hall to give her first performance of Portrait of a Lady - A Tribute to Margaret Laurence on home turf. Kohl had just arrived back on Canadian soil to tour the onewoman play, adapted by playwright George Ryga and based on Laurence’s famous novel The Stone Angel. A former Summerland resident, Kohl and her husband, Ken Smedley, a Kamloops native who has directed Portrait since its inception, were living in the small Mexican city of Ajijic, near Guadalajara, where the play was first launched 32 years ago. The couple, then with three young children, was encouraged to bring Portrait to Canada, and the intimate Hulcar Hall, located just north of Armstrong, seemed like the ideal starting point. “The hall was built in the same era as the book. It was heated by an old wood stove and had old wooden seats. There was this rich ambiance about it –– the creaky stage –– that loaned itself to the atmosphere,” said Kohl. “I remember the headlights coming down the road, and being relieved that people were coming to see it.” That was back in 1987, coincidently the same year that both Laurence and Ryga died, and Kohl, who now calls Armstrong home, has continued to slip into Hagar Shipley’s skin as easily as brushing the long hair that cascades down her back. She reprises the role when Portrait of a Lady tours around the Okanagan (Kohl’s last performance took place in Vernon five years ago) in lieu with the handing out of this year’s George Ryga Award for Social Awareness in Literature, Oct. 1 in Summerland. In The Stone Angel, Hagar Shipley narrates the pivotal moments of her life as she grows older. She reveals her innermost fears and regrets, at times tragic, other times humorous. “There’s something tender

and emotional stress, she sublimated her own needs to keep the peace with a controlling, temperamental man. She suffered inwardly, which caused disease in her heart, lungs, liver and female organs.” Kohl’s mother died at the age of 71 from bronchial pneumonia. “It left me with a complex legacy to sort out. I had to decide whether I would follow in her footsteps, or work to contradict her model of martyrdom.” Kohl chose a different life, and though her work as an artist, (including a successful modelling and acting career) she has been able to evolve, and therefore, better understand Hagar. She has also had a lot of support from Smedley, who initially encouraged and directed Kohl to debut Portrait in Mexico. “He’s a thorough director and you can’t get away with anything, but he has also encouraged me to go to my own experiences as a Prairie girl growing up. It’s added depth to the piece.” For this upcoming tour, Kohl and Smedley have also enlisted the help of lighting director Beverley Peacock, who has worked on shows at Caravan Farm Theatre. “I am looking forward to working with her. I’m sure she will bring sensitivity to the piece and all of its emotional ups and downs,” said Kohl. The tour of Portrait of a Lady will be presented in the North Okanagan at the Centennial Theatre in Armstrong Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. (Tickets are at The Brown Derby restaurant in Armstrong. Call 250-546-8221), and Oct. 6 at Vernon’s Powerhouse Theatre at 8 p.m. (Tickets are at The BookNook in Vernon. Call 250-558-0668.) Kohl will also take the performance to Summerland’s Centre Stage Theatre for the Ryga award ceremony, where B.C. writer Richard Wagamese will be recognized for his winning entry, One Story, One Song, Oct. 1 at 8 p.m. Tickets for the evening are $20 and available at the Okanagan College Bookstore in Kelowna (250862-5622) or at the door.

Vernon’s Allen makes his movie premiere debut KRISTIN FRONEMAN
the finishing touches on his first album under the Epic label. He is still awaiting word from the label when the album will officially be released. In the meantime, he has written and recorded a new single outside of the album
Morning Star Staff
He’s conquered Canadian airwaves with a number of hit singles, and now Andrew Allen is “abducting” Hollywood as he gets ready to release his new album in the coming months. The Vernon singersongwriter, who was signed by Epic Records last October, had his most recent single, Loving You Tonight, hit the top 30 adult contemporary charts in the U.S. this summer. The song is also featured on the sound track of new film Abduction, which has its theatrical release in Canada Friday. Allen attended the premiere for the film last Thursday at Hollywood’s famed Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, sharing the red (actually black) carpet with the likes of the film’s stars Taylor Lautner (of Twilight series fame) and Lily Collins (The Blind Side). Used to the spotlight –– on stage –– the constant flash of cameras, throng of celebrity reporters, and screaming fans was, to quote one of Allen’s songs, “amazing.” “I started with an interview for Abduction Live, then proceeded to walk the red/black carpet directly in front of Sigourney Weaver. Those flashes were crazy,” said Allen. “I took a few interviews with various U.S. media outlets, including Perez Hilton. They actually asked if I could abduct anyone famous, who would it be? I said ‘Perez Hilton, though I
to be released in Canada any day now. “The new single I have coming out is called I Want You and it should be hitting radio in the next week or so, with the video coming at the same time,” said Allen, explaining he thinks a lot of peo-
ple will identify with the song’s lyrics. “It’s those three words that we’re sometimes afraid to say to a friend that we maybe want to be more than friends with. It’s on the romantic side though, not the
lusty side. It’s saying ‘I should have told you this before... Don’t leave, stay here with me ‘cause I want you.’” For updates on the album and on Allen, visit www.andrewallenlive.com.

Taylor Lautner was a row over. Steve Buscemi was a couple rows back. The rest of the cast was seated in front of us. Sigourney Weaver was nearby... It was quite the event,” said Allen, adding, “The funny thing about people being behind us is at the premiere the nose bleed section is actually the front, which amazingly, we weren’t even that close to.” Following the movie premiere, the majority of people made their way over to the after party, which took place in a nightclub on the 12th floor of the W Hotel just blocks from the Grauman theatre. “The indoor space
was awesome, but the outdoor space was spectacular,” said Allen, who performed three songs for the VIPs at the event and was introduced by the film’s director John Singleton. “There were a dozen or more cabanas where the stars of the movie were put up in to entertain interviews, photos and generally just to get praised for a job well done. The whole patio was lit with lanterns and pyramid gas fires.” After his performance, Allen went to thank star Lautner for having him involved. “He was super gracious, and said ‘your song has a special place with me and Lily,’” said Allen. The film is just one of many projects Allen has been a part of since his musical career has taken off. More recently, he has been in the studio with Vancouver producer Ryan Stewart putting

Culture Days programming director Trudy Van Dop. “The outstanding increase in participation this year shows the ini-
tiative of the many arts organizations in our creative and cultural communities to create access to a wide range of activities and events for the general public and get us all involved in celebrating B.C. culture.” Culture Days invites everyone to participate in and experience the cultural life in our province. “It’s more than just a celebration – it’s an opportunity to discover
local creators and to find out how culture and the arts enrich our lives and communities,” said Van Dop.

Get ready to skank to some fast moving Latin rock and ska when Colombia’s Skampida returns to Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Friday. Presented by the Victoria Ska Club, Skampida is a six-piece, highenergy band from the Colombian capital of Bogota who have become one of the most successful and popular ska groups to emerge from South America. “They were at Lorenzo’s this spring and put on one exceptional show,” said café owner Lorne Costley. Formed more than 12 years ago, Skampida has put its own interpretation on ska (a style originated in Jamaica with fast rhythms and horn accompaniment). A mash between Madness and Sepultura, the band is known throughout South America, and their music has been heard in the most remote corners of Colombia and neighboring
countries such as Venezuela, Chile, and Argentina. The band continues to gain acclaim throughout the world, including Latin America, North America, and parts of Europe. Skampida launched their debut album, Stereo Blaster, in 2004, featuring popular singles Castaneda and Circulo Cicoso. Since then, they have performed with renowned artists such as Alicia Keys, Manu Chao, and Gogol Bordello, and have been invited to participate in the world famous FNB 2009 in Caracas, and Bogota’s Rock al Parque. Media outlets such as The New Times and Shock Magazine have awarded Skampida the title of “Best Ska and Reggae Band” and “Best Live Performance.” Skampida performs at Lorenzo’s, 901 Mabel Lake Rd., east of Enderby, Friday at 8 pm. For reservations/tickets, call the café at 250-838-6700.

Diverse interests compete for water JUDIE STEEVES Black Press
The stakes are high: In a valley with the least water per capita of all water basins in Canada there are many who want their interests to be top priority, including residents of the U.S. and trans-boundary native bands. Osoyoos Indian Band Chief Clarence Louie stated in open-
ing this week’s international Water Science Forum in Osoyoos, “The Okanagan Nation wants to work with you to ensure we can always swim in these waters and eat the fish in these waters.” But he was blunt as well: “Either you invite us in the door or we’re going to kick down the door.” By way of explanation, he pointed to
“We will have as much of a say as anyone.” — Clarence Louie history and warned, “We’re not going to just stand on the sidelines again. We won’t be silent. We will have as much of a say as anyone
else in the future.” He told of the opening, in the last century, of the Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia River, where the Indians
The Corporation of the
City of Vernon NOTICE OF TAX SALE Notice is hereby given that the following described properties will be sold by Public Auction, to be held under the provisions of Part II of the Local Government Act. The auction will be held on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. in the City of Vernon Council Chambers, 3400 - 30th Street, Vernon, British Columbia. At the time of the bid, successful bidders are required to deposit CASH, BANK DRAFT, INTERAC or a CERTIFIED CHEQUE only with the Collector. Any person placing successful bids on behalf of a Company must be prepared to afﬁx the Company’s Corporate Seal to documents. The purchase of a Tax Sale property is subject to tax under the PROPERTY PURCHASE TAX ACT on the fair market value of the property.
were invited to don their traditional regalia and attend the opening ceremony, even though they had not been consulted when the white man decided to erect that barrier to fish passage up the river and into the Okanagan Valley, prohibiting the salmon from migrating. He said that Thursday the valley’s chiefs will meet in Westbank to discuss the water that flows down the valley and across the border. He noted that the international boundary is an imaginary line dividing the Okanagan peoples, so that today the Colville Tribes are in the U.S. and the Okanagan Nation are in Canada, where once they were one. And, when Chuck Brushwood spoke for the Confederated
Tribes of the Colville Reservation, he added, “We are all salmon people and salmon need water.” Louie explained that the salmon “indicate whether we’re doing our job. We have to pay attention. They’re an important part of our lives.” Plants and animals require good water and they are the first to suffer. “It all starts with water.” Okanagan MLA John Slater agreed it’s all about the water, and also that there’s only one water source, from Vernon to Oroville, Washington. “We need to control it. We need drinkable water to take care of our future,” he said. “Water is the number one restriction on growth. If we screw this
up we’ll be in big trouble.” From south of the border, Senator Bob Morton noted they’re already having difficulties with water in his State of Washington. Some of the challenges include the need for more power production and dams to store B.C.’s spring runoff for agricultural production on the U.S. side of the border, he said. “By 2050 we’ll need to double agricultural production to feed our own nations and the nations of the world. Fresh water is our greatest asset. It’s more precious than gold,” he added. The forum ended Tuesday, with scientists and lay people from both sides of the border making presentations on water issues.
Properties must be withdrawn from the Tax Sale upon payment of delinquent taxes, plus interest, from January 1, 2011, or date of last payment to the date of payment. This payment must be by CASH, CERTIFIED CHEQUE or BANK DRAFT and must be received in City Hall PRIOR to 10:00 a.m. Monday, September 26, 2011.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Go ahead and assert yourself for everybody’s collective benefit, not just for your interests alone. It’s to everyone’s advantage to exert a group effort rather than making points with merely one voice. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Nobody is likely to be lucky in getting others to hear only one voice today, but getting others to speak out collectively could be to everyone’s advantage. Gather your forces and plan in advance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If you encounter a person whom you were once very close to but have been somewhat estranged lately, act friendly. It would be to your advantage to get together again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be careful not to become demanding in a delicate development that requires the cooperation of everybody. If you are arrogant, you’ll have to fend for yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It would be asking for trouble to demand cooperation of others if you find their behavior to be arrogant. You can’t control how they comport themselves, but you can set an example with your conduct. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Move extremely cautiously with your financial affairs. Don’t take any risk, or encourage others to do so. Losses could be greater than usual at this point in time. ARIES (March 21-April 19) If you feel compelled to make a decision under pressure, be careful, because your judgment might not be
up to its usual standards. Don’t let others usurp your independent thinking. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Use your common sense and don’t attempt to do something on your own that takes two pairs of mitts to handle. Don’t put yourself in jeopardy trying to prove how strong you are. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Guard against inclinations to take any comments seriously that you know should be treated as jokes. If you are the butt of a harmless tease, laugh harder than your friends. CANCER (June 21-July 22) People in general, including you, could have low flash points. Nobody expects you to be perfect at all times, but even if you can’t control someone else’s behavior, rein in your own. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If something annoys you, instead of bringing it out in the open you might choose to grumble and growl under your breath, causing others to wonder what’s wrong. Loudly laugh it off.

Students encouraged to get involved Morning Star Staff
There’s a lot more to university than books and studying and the
Get Involved program wants to help introduce students to the world around them.

Okanagan campus and she has a dream of getting students involved not only with volunteering on campus, but the community at large. “What ‘Get Involved’ means will really be determined by the students,” says Lowton. “They want to do something that is cool, but that can be different for different people.” Often when people consider volunteering they think of traditional charitable organizations, but Lowton says there is a world of opportunity waiting for someone who is willing to give their time. Many volunteering
“Our students are strong leaders.” — Michelle Lowton opportunities are nontraditional and cover a broad spectrum of activities. “Our students are strong leaders who are interested in contributing to the community,” she said. “We have a lot of people who are exceptional with certain things, but don’t know what to do with those skills.” Human kinetics student Leah Donatiello spent the past two sum-
mers volunteering in Peru, but she is also active on campus and she recommends other students also sign up to get the most out of their university experience. “It makes you feel like you are doing more than just your studies,” she says. “Pick something you are interested in and go with it. Find out what you really like and put your energy into it. It’s really rewarding.”
The Get Involved program began with the start of school and Lowton has big plans for the future. She wants the space in the University Centre to be the epicentre of all things volunteer –related from students helping other students with projects to community agencies a onestop shop for connecting with volunteers. “I want the centre to be a place for students to get other students involved,” she says. “I would also love non-profit organizations to call us and say ‘We want your students.’”

Dutcher clutch for Camel shutout Morning Star Staff
Riddled with injuries to key players, the Vernon Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels looked to their keeper Dave Dutcher for a boost against Okanagan Spring Brewery Monday night at Marshall Field #2. Dutcher even got the vote from the Brewers for the Baconator Man of the Match as the Camels hung on for a 1-0 victory in Okanagan Oldtimers 45+ Soccer League quarterfinal action. Former Vancouver Whitecaps Reserve striker Mike Lloyd was stoned twice by Dutcher in the first half. Dutcher dove like he was auditioning for Cirque du Soleil to get his fingertips on a Lloyd free-kick corker over the wall and headed for the top shelf. â€œThat was an unbelievable save,â€? said Humpbacksâ€™ veteran Ron Krause. â€œDutch was on his game. We couldnâ€™t get on track in the second half when they had (defender Jeff) Vest moving up and looking for the tying goal.â€? The lean and mean Dutcher, who can bench press 75 pounds, then used quick reflexes to stop Lloydâ€™s low shot from the side of the net. Spring coach Akbal Mund said â€œIt was a terrific match to watch with many scoring opportunities, great physical play, excellent refereeing by Mark Hopkins and his linesmen, and great saves by Pete (The Heat) Richter and Dutcher.â€? Midfielder Chris Reeves, who missed most of the season with the seventh-place Spring, Bob Fleming, Lloyd and Vest pressed hard for the equalizer in the second half but couldnâ€™t find the net. Gord Howard, without his injured mates Mike Daly and Rick Raber, scored in the 20th minute off a 30-yard howitzer top corner after a feed by Dan Zieske, who played a stellar match. The second-place Camels will now meet the third-place North Country Appraisals Kickers in Mondayâ€™s semifinals. North Country doubled the Silver Stars 4-2 at Mission #73 Sports Park, jumping out to a 3-0

Art Renaud replied for the sixth-place Stars 15 minutes into the second half on a low free kick from 30 yards which fooled keeper Marty Vince. Greg Bevandick scored an insurance goal for the Kickers 10
minutes later. Rob Bauml of the Stars took on two defenders while flicking in a cross by Mark DeVolder just before the final whistle. Fifth-place Salmon Arm upset fourth-place Penticton United 2-0 at Beasley Park in Lake Country, while league champion Kelowna
IGA cruised past eighth-place Pushor Mitchell 7-0 at Mission #71. Several yellow cards were issued in a tense battle between Penticton and Salmon Arm. Dave Howe opened the scoring with a left-foot cracker from 35 yards out into the top left corner on a setup from Jeff
Abbott midway though the first half. Abbott set up the second goal midway though the second half after juking and jiving and dishing off to Jonathan Bugden, who buried it in the low right side. Salmon Arm had a few more close in chances that would have put the game away sooner. Keeper Allen Bensmiller had a relatively quiet night, turning away one shot and watching another hit the cross bar. Salmon Arm will now meet IGA in the other semifinal Monday. Phil Andrews (2), Randy Bartnick, Colin Burton, Tony Gonzales, Russ Hamer and Darryl Hazell secured IGAâ€™s place in the semifinal round. On the consolation side, Lake Country shaded the Big O Tire Ogopogos 3-2 at Marshall #5. Big O took a 2-0 lead on goals by Gary Dill, set up nicely by Mike Powell and Mark Wasylyk. Lake Country came back with two goals by Paul Charlton and a single by Mike Siemens. In 35+ league action, the Vernon Square Liquor Store Celtics lost 1-0 to Kelownaâ€™s Fountain Tire in an entertaining match at Rutland Sports Park. Fountain Tire dominated possession for most of the game but the chances in front of the nets were equally spread. The lone goal was scored early in the second half when slack marking gave away an open opportunity for the 9-8-3 Tiremen to fire home from the 16-yard box. Until then, the Celtics were kept into the game by strong performances from keeper Chris Bader and sweeper Jason Beck. With 15 minutes to go, Celticsâ€™ coach Kai Tolpinreed added an extra forward in a push for the equalizer. The switch resulted in a handful of opportunities but the net was not to be found. The result leaves the 8-102 Celtics with a tough play-off draw against defending champion Penticton Pinnacles Saturday afternoon at Beasley.

TenVaanholt headed to Grizz GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff
Jarryd TenVaanholt was a victim of a numbers game as much as anything. With B.C. Hockey League rosters trimmed from 23 to 21 players for the coming season, the 1991-born West Vancouver product was the odd man out as Vernon Vipers’ head coach/GM Jason Williamson made the final cut in selecting his 12-man forward corps for the league’s 50th season. Acquired in a four-player, offseason deal that sent forward Dane Muench and d-man Phillip Patenaude to the SJHL Kindersley Klippers, TenVaanholt was stunned to learn he was being shipped to the Victoria Grizzlies in exchange for the playing rights to Pearce Eviston (WHL Portland Winterhawks). “We all knew there was one roster spot that had to be taken away, but I never expected it would be me,” said TenVaanholt, as he was driving off the B.C. Ferry in Schwartz Bay to join his new team. TenVaanholt, who played last season with the Salmon Arm SilverBacks, had his calendar circled for the Vipers’ season opener against his former club Friday night at Wesbild Centre. Vernon visits the ‘Backs Saturday at Sunwave Centre. “I was definitely looking forward to this home-andhome against Salmon Arm. Now it’s just going to be the same mentality and doing my best playing with Victoria when they face teams like Cowichan Valley (Capitals),” said the classy TenVaanholt. In Victoria, he will be reunited with former linemate Dante Godinho, who he played with at Hollyburn. As the Vipers showed last season, they aren’t afraid to roll with a younger roster. TenVaanholt’s departure leaves Vernon with just three 20-year-olds (they are allowed up to six) in the lineup – netminder Kirby Halcrow, and forwards Pat McGillis and Darren Nowick. “We had younger guys that came in here and really impressed (at main camp). With the roster sizes, it made for a tough decision,” said Williamson, who noted there is no guarantee Eviston will ever leave Portland. “We’re getting a coveted player we’ve been after for while, but it’s a chance. He’s a highly touted player in this league.” With WHL teams getting ready to trim their rosters, there are some 20s available should Williamson decide he needs some experience, but he said it would have to be something exceptional. “There’s some guys we have our eye on in that league, but I like our group. Unless it’s a no-brainer, we’ll stand pat and see how things go here.” SNAKE BITES: Vernon will open the regular season with forwards McGillis, Nowick, Mike Zalewski, John Knisley, Colton Sparrow, Marcus Basara, Aaron Hadley, Alex Hagen, Jedd Soleway, Connor Hartley, Adam Tambellini and Riley Hunt, defencemen Brett Corkey, Max Mowat, Ryan Renz, Geoff Crisfield, Marc Hetnik, Turner Lawson and Luke Juha, and netminder Halcrow and Danny Todosychuk.

Norm Kreutz chips his way onto the green during the Vernon Golf and Country Club Men’s Championship Saturday.
Ross swings sixth title Morning Star Staff
Landscaper Tom Ross hardly created a masterpiece, but like a clutch player, managed to carve out his sixth Vernon Golf & Country Club men’s championship last weekend. The 43-year-old won his third straight title by producing rounds of 71 and 76. The +1 player was even-par a year ago. Ross pocketed a $150 pro shop gift certificate and another $30 for a deuce on the 14th hole. He defeated Jason Bilodeau by one stroke. There was a field of 96. “I hit it horrible, but I played good enough to win,” chuckled Ross. “Jason played really well. If the golf course had more holes, he probably would have won. Norm (Kreutz) played well too.” Kreutz finished third low gross at 152, followed by Glen Kitagawa, at 158, and Mike McAvoy and Andy Saunders, both at 159. Ross, who says he’s “Gunning for (Jeremy) Osborne” in the Canada
Goose Invitational next year, enjoyed the set up of the Vernon track. “Our course played tough Sunday. The greens were super fast and it was fun out there.” Rick Krushen carded a 131 to win overall low net, collecting $150 in pro shop dollars. Gord Johnston finished fifth low gross in the championship flight at 163. Doug Smith topped the first flight low gross at 159, followed by Brian Carpenter, at 161, Jim Sparrow, at 163, Ernie Cherkowski, at 167 (retrogression) and John Lacroix, at 167. Runner-up to Kitagawa in the second flight was Norm Bickel with a 165. Andy Doyle was third, at 165, followed by Stacey Nichol, at 167, and Peter McClean, at 169. Tim Ouellette won the third flight at 170 with Gary Pielak second at 173 and Rod Rieger third at 174. Rob Irving, with a 177, and Randy Bradsen, at 180, rounded out the flight.

Osborne golden at Goose KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor
Jeremy Osborne of Salmon Arm hit the range last Thursday with a buddy to work on a glitch in his golf game. The 33-year-old real estate agent owes his friend dinner after earning a 50-inch plasma TV as champion of the $10,000 Canada Goose CocaCola Invitational last weekend at the Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club. “We worked on my positioning and we made two changes which made a huge difference,” said the amiable Osborne, who was runner-up in the Goose a year ago. “I’ve used three different drivers and five different shafts the last while and I drove the ball well (using a Titleist driver).” Osborne, who ruled the Revelstoke Open two weeks ago, posted runner-up finishes in the Rivershore (Kamloops) Open and the Ogopogo (Kelowna) earlier this season. He also held the early lead at the B.C. Amateur in Kamloops with a 68 before finishing 43rd. He carded rounds of 1-under 70 and 68 in the Goose, one shot better than Gord McGarva of Kelowna. There was a field of 107. “I had a run (birdie) on 14 and 15 the second day, but I struggled with the putter Saturday,” said Osborne,
who missed canning a handful of relatively short birdie attempts in the first round. McGarva was up a deuce after a dozen holes Sunday but got into tree trouble on the par-4 14th hole, taking an unplayable and scoring a triplebogey seven. McGarva birdied the 15th and 17th holes and tied Osborne for 68 on the day. “That was an unfortunate triple,” said Osborne. “I’ve played with Gord before and he is one of the most genuine players out there. It’s fun, but you have to stay focussed.” Osborne, a +1 handicap who took up the game at age 12 at the Salmon Arm Golf & CC with his father and brother, doesn’t have room for the TV so will trade it in or put it up for sale. Rob Young of Victoria took the giant TV home for claiming low net honours at 131. Mark Dearing of Spallumcheen was low gross winner in the second flight at 155 (retrogression), while Mike Keller of Skaha Meadows in Penticton topped the third flight at 163 and Dan Williams of Spall won the fourth flight at 170. All three players and McGarva earned smaller TVs. Runner-up low gross finishers by flight were Doug Engbrecht of Kelowna, at 147, Jeff Mushaluk of Salmon Arm, at 155, Ken Robertson
of Spall, at 163 (retro) and Mike Evanishen of Spall, at 175. They all pocketed G20 drivers. Vince Lewis of Spall took low gross in the third flight with a 150, followed by clubmates James Carr, at 144, Rodger Bergen, at 167, and Adam Bartko at 177 (retro). All four men received Blu Ray DVD machines. Defending low net champion Wayne Schaeffer of Kelowna topped low gross in the fourth flight with a 154. Spall entrants King Cam, at 163, and Harry Bowker, at 170, and Ron Heinzelman of Osoyoos, at 177 (retro), rounded out the top-four, collecting putters. In the fifth flight, it was Bob Smith of Spall first at 155, ahead of clubmates John Stewart, at 164 and Rob Lenoury, at 171. Rocky Becker of Sunset Ranch in Kelowna was fourth at 177 (retro). All four took home Ping shirts. On the low net side, flight winners were Brent Cairn of Sunset Ranch, at 139, followed by Spall players Peter Haines, at 139, Brian Borgford, at 140, and Gerry Crawford, at 141. They all won TVs. Second low gross by flights were Dave Gray of Spall at 139, Bryan Robbie of BCGA, at 140, Neil Chester of Spall, at 142, and Doug Quinville of West Vancouver, at 146 (retro). They pocketed G20 drivers.

Magnums’ tear continues Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Magnums mauled the Penticton Cougars 20-5 in Southern Interior Football Conference Midget action Sunday in Penticton. The 3-0 Magnums came out slow against a surprisingly tough Penticton squad and held a 7-2 lead at the half. The Magnum defence kept Vernon pressing in the second half, led by captain Taylor Jameson, who rampaged the Cougars with five sacks. Victor Hubscher, Erik Paulsen and Dan Vassberg also added sacks to foil Penticton from mounting any offence. Vernon safety Greg Hyde closed the door on the Cougars with a late interception, followed by a spectacular run back for a gameending touchdown. The two touchdowns from the hardrunning of Dustyn Schubert proved to be the highlight of Vernon’s offence as the usual Magnum air attack failed to get off the ground. “We saw some great running from Justin Vicklund today too,” said offensive coordinator Dan Brown. Head coach Bill (Lumpy) Tarr complimented game MVP Jameson for “playing the best game of his life,” and was proud of how the Magnum defence and offence faced their first real taste of adversity in the two past seasons. The Magnums continue their road show Sunday in Cranbrook against the Rocky Mountain Bighorns. The Vernon Marauders crushed the Kamloops Wildcats 63-0 in Junior Bantam play Sunday at Grahame Park. Quarterback Trey Isaac took control of the offence early in the second quarter, calling all of the plays, and rushing for 77 yards and two TDs. He was 4-for-5 in passing attempts. Jonah Waterstreet was the Marauders’ big gun, rushing for 89 yards and garnering another 62 yards in receptions while scoring three TDs. Levi Nicholas also had a big day, running for 77 yards, scoring three TDs and making some crucial blocks. Wideouts James Bertram, Jayden Koscielny, and Kieran Webster also did a great job of blocking, as did fullback Bryce Sorensen, who also rushed for 32 yard on five carries. On defence, Jakob Laflame-Yonkman, Connor Manahan, Weston Vanderveen, Keith Jones, Mitchell Johnsten, Mackenzie Henry and Jett Carey all had huge days for the Marauders, holding the Wildcats to negative yards. “Our boys came to play,“ said defensive

The Pee Wee Yellow Jackets jolted the Kamloops Wildcats 28-0 Sunday at Grahame park. Vernon’s ‘Big Mac Attack’ defence, named by defensive coordinator Bryan Cragg, continued its dominance. In three games, the defence has only allowed 12 points. Defensive standouts for the day were Tristen Baker, Thomas Sattwethwaite, Noah Slimmon, Issac Olsen and Bryce Tkachuk, who recorded an interception. On offence, QB Olsen completed two of five passes, ran for 98 yards and registered two touchdowns. Also scoring for Vernon was speedy running back Zach Benn, who had 121 yards and two touchdowns. Jordan Scherck, Trey Winstanley and Garret Black-Thomas also ran the ball well. It was a huge turnaround for the offensive line for Vernon, who dominated all game. The O-line consists of Liam Alder, Joe Bateman, Jeff Estrada, Nez Ford, Stephane Foster, Clayton Hamming, Taylor Pelletier and Dorian Weeks.
Rounding out the scoring was kicker Dylan Huber, who nailed two of four converts. In Atom play at Grahame Park, the Vernon Bombers blitzed the Kamloops Broncos 47-0. The offence had their best game of the season with more than 300 total yards. Zach Smith had a great game, racking up 77 yards rushing for two touchdowns. Ethan Anderson had one touchdown, 40 yards rushing and 25 passing yards, while Ethan Mitchell added a touchdown and 25 yards receiving. Brady Szeman and Chelbie Mackiewich ran the ball and blocked well all game long. Liam Gombrich stood out on the offensive line. Leading the Bomber defence was Liam Cyr, who had an interception in the first quarter and ran it back for a touchdown. Devin Hofsink recorded five tackles and two forced fumbles. Strong play also came from Matthew Reich with five tackles, Keegan Carmichael two tackles and Daniel Lesik with two fumble recoveries. Liam Glennon was the special teams player of the game, going 4-for-4 on extra points.
Pee Wee Lakers storm Kamloops Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Female Pee Wee Rep Lakers stopped Kamloops 5-3 in exhibition hockey action Sunday at Civic Arena. Samantha Head opened the Laker scoring on a feed from Cassidy Marshall followed by a goal from Mairyn Tucker, assisted by Jordan Butler and Emily Clarke. Kamloops answered back with a late first-period goal and then connected again midway through the second period to equalize. After the break, Vernon scored on a great solo effort from Marshall. Kamloops
answered back quickly to tie it 3-3. Vernon then carried much of the play and relied on goaltender Selena Collee to make keys saves when required. At 3:22 of the third period, Andie Kaneda battled coast to coast to score what turned out to be the winner. Things got a little crazy late when Kamloops called a time out to put together one final attack. They gained control in the Vernon end and with their goalie off for a sixth player, they had a scoring chance denied by Collee with 17 seconds left. Head took a roughing penalty and with
the face off in Vernon’s end, Tucker won the draw to Makenna Southam who cleared the zone. Tucker picked the puck up and broke free to score an empty-netter with two seconds remaining. Vernon, coached by Arne Flaten, also got some great defensive work from AmyRae, Courtney Graves, Ailish Curran and Tiera Joseph, and great forechecking from Carly Southam, Julia McCaig and Chelsea Marshall. The Lakers visit Kamloops on Saturday and entertain them Sunday (12:30 p.m.) at Civic.

Solid start for Knights Morning Star Staff
Last year, it took until the playoffs for the North Okanagan Knights to earn their lone win against the Revelstoke Grizzlies. A few days later, their season was over as Revelstoke went on to win the firstround series 4-1. The Knights wasted no time in seeking redemption in their 2011-12 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League campaign, registering a 6-3 win over the Grizz in their first encounter Saturday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Head coach Kris Mallette said the win was as much a mental victory as it was two points in the standings for the Knights, who ended a three-game home stand with a 5-2 loss to the Fernie Ghost Riders in a Sunday matinee in Armstrong. “The holdovers from last year, that was new territory for them and a great confidence booster,” said Mallette. “It doesn’t mean a lot (in the standings), but to get a win against Revelstoke and to be 2-1 after the weekend is a good start.” Against Revelstoke, the Knights got off a stellar start with goals 12 seconds apart by Eric Chore and Mateja Leko. Then the North Okanagan powerplay went to work, with Patrick Chore and Bryce Koch firing man-advantage goals late in the first period. The Knights recorded eight powerplay goals on 33 attempts (24.24 per cent) in their first three games. “Our powerplay is clicking early and that was the difference Friday (7-3 win over Sicamous Eagles) and Saturday. They were finding openings and moving the puck. It got us off to a good quick start,” said Mallette. Armstrong’s Brett Hawrys scored the lone second-period goal before the Grizzlies started a push in the third.
“We kind of sat back. They scored one and we started to panic, and then the scored two and three,” said Mallette. Darnel St. Pierre, with a pair, and Marc Letourneau handled the Revelstoke scoring. Koch netted his second goal to complete North Okanagan’s attack. Blake Puetz earned the win with 21 saves. Ethan Wood (17 saves) took the loss. Mallette said Puetz and Colten Wright, both Salmon Arm minor hockey products, have earned an extended tryout while he seeks out a veteran No. 1 net detective. The Ghostriders were the ones to get off to a hot start Sunday afternoon, burying three unanswered goals in the first period. Wright (16 saves) got caught looking for the backdoor pass on a pair of short side powerplay goals by Easton Bodeux and Connor McLaughlin. Down 3-0, Mallette credited the young tender for keeping his team alive with some solid saves after that. Sean Mulcahy, with the lone second-period strike, and Josh Wickenheiser, with a man-advantage goal in the third frame, handled North Okanagan’s attack. Austin Evan and Josh McSkimming put the game away with a pair of empty-netters in the final minute. While Mallette was happy to see how his team responded after being down early, he said it wasn’t enough of a push back. “To see how the kids responded, they were definitely resilient to make it 3-2 in the third period. “The guys battled but by no means did we deserve to win that game. The team that beat us was in the same boat (playing three games in three days).” For the record, Hawrys was not traded to the Kelowna Chiefs, as was reported in Friday’s Morning Star.

Maroons maul Mount Baker Morning Star Staff
The Fulton Maroons warmed up for their annual trip to Washington State by ambushing the Mt. Baker Wild of Cranbrook 58-0 in exhibition senior football play Saturday afternoon at Grahame Park. The Maroons got everybody into the game as they prepare to face the powerful Omak Pioneers Friday night. The seniors and junior varsity team will take in the Big Sky Conference game Saturday night in Cheney, Wa. between the Eastern Washington Eagles and Montana State Bobcats. Fulton head coach Mike Scheller was pleased with the way his crew executed. “We had very few penalties, no turnovers and made few mental mistakes,” said Scheller. “Those are marks of good football teams, and our kids work hard at being smart and disciplined. Mt. Baker is a very young and inexperienced team, but were game opponents. We were just more experienced and better on the day.” Clayton Mottus caught a four-yard TD pass from Kyle Richardson, a 40-yarder from Marshall Kazemir and ran 47 yards for another score to spark the Maroons. Mike Ochoa, on a 45-yard scamper, Kyle Richardson, Devon Harris, Roman Le and Tanner Bishop also supplied rushing touchdowns. Clark Richardson booted a 30-yard field goal to complete the scoring. Ochoa finished with two carries 60 yards, while Matt Parlee had three touches for 28 yards. The Maroons had 15 different players run the ball. Kyle Richardson completed four of seven passes for 39 yards, while Kazemir was 2-for-4 for 54 yards. Mottus provided 55 yards on three catches, while Lucas Hofer grabbed one catch for 19 yards

Broden Romanovitch registered four tackles, while Kyle Richardson earned three and Mark Wagner and Sean Greene had two each. Cody Lutes and Wagner had one sack apiece, while Nevens and Clark Richardson each produced one interception. “Line coach Shane (Gator) Gaythorpe did a great job of getting our players blocking well in the kicking game,” said Scheller. “Three of our linemen scored rushing TDs and it is good to see the big boys get the ball.” Scheller also praised safety Broden Romanovitch for a great showing, while singling out Coles and Sean Greene at linebacker.

In the past 10 years, a simple piece of paper has helped to raise more than $14 million in the fight against cancer. And once again, Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada are inviting customers to make a donation in support of women’s health through its Tree of Life fundraiser. Held each fall, the campaign provides customers with the opportunity to purchase and personalize a Tree of Life icon, including a “leaf ” for a loonie, a “butterfly” for $5 or a “cardinal” for $50. The icons are prominently displayed on the Tree of Life in all participating stores and 100 per cent of proceeds are donated to local women’s health organizations. Jennifer Patrick is a supervisor at Shoppers’ The Shops at Polson Park location, and she is happy to announce that once again all funds raised locally will be donated to the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. “It’s a way for Shoppers Drug Mart to promote a healthy community, and 100 per cent of the funds raised will stay in Vernon,” said Patrick, who is organizing the campaign at her store, but added that all three Vernon Shoppers locations will be raising funds for the Cancer Centre. The campaign runs until Oct. 14, and Patrick hopes the community will once again be generous. “So many of us have been touched by cancer,” she said. “I’ve lost so many people to the disease, including my dad, my grandfather and an aunt, and I have another aunt who has just survived uterine cancer. “I’m pretty sure that everyone who walks into the store has been touched by cancer, so it hits pretty close to home.” Customers are encouraged to purchase one of the icons, on which they can either write their own name or the name of a loved one they wish to remember. “With the support of our pharmacist-owners and their teams at store-

Customers who wish to support this campaign can purchase a Tree of Life icon online at www.shoppersdrugmart.ca/ treeoflife or by visiting a local participating Shoppers Drug Mart store between now and Oct. 14.
An ability to play the bagpipes is not required PETER KENDAL Special to The Morning Star
Wha’s like us? Gey few, and they’re a’ fu’. The translation of the above line (an old Scots toast) from the Scottish dialect into more understandable English reads “Who is like us? Very few, and they are all drunk.” So who is like us? We are the Sons of Scotland and welcome anyone with an interest in anything Scottish who enjoys meeting with other people who have the same interests, enjoy good company, enjoy good food and much more! I don’t think that you can or should be excluded from any of those enjoyments, so come and see for yourself at our open house on Monday. You don’t have to be Scottish, wear a kilt (unless you want to), play the bagpipes or do any of the many things usually associated with Scotland. The writer has two kilts (one for summer and the other for the rest of the year), played the bass
drum in a pipe band and has always felt very welcome in the Sons of Scotland in spite of being a Geordie! And don’t be fooled by our title because a lady was our chief last year. The Sons of Scotland is a national association with 19 branches (we call them “camps”) and has been established in Vernon since 1949. It was started in the late 1800s to assist immigrants from Scotland to meet the challenges in Canada, their new country. Since then Scots, both Highlanders and Lowlanders, have played an important role in developing Canada. This is expressed very well in our slogan that says we are “Happily Scottish, Proudly Canadian!” But in our multinational country we have always given a warm welcome with traditional Scottish hospitality to anyone who shares our interests and our aims. The word “Clan” is Scottish Gaelic for “family,” and we like to think of ourselves as a Canadian clan, but with no family feuds! And did you know that Craigellachie in
B.C., where the last spike of the crossCanada railway was struck home, is an old Scottish Gaelic word meaning “the rock of the cry of distress” and is so called as it was the rallying point in times of trouble for Clan Grant. We have an unobtrusive but constant presence in our community. Examples of this are our support of the Kidney Foundation, the giving of bursaries to students pursuing Celtic studies, and participation in the Sunshine Festival. Our regular monthly meetings are in the Halina Centre on the fourth Monday of most months. These may include our Christmas dinner, Burns Night, Saint Andrew’s Night and other events. Whatever reason you have for joining us, we would like to welcome you to our association. And to answer the second part of the line, our activities are done in a sober and serious manner but with enjoyment! See for yourself, come join us at the Halina Centre on Monday at 7:30 p.m. and have a good time!

Traditional methods used in healing Morning Star Staff
Frank Austin Manyhorses learned First Nations traditional healing from his grandparents, both shamans, while he was growing up in the Bulkley Valley near Hazelton in Northern B.C. “It is a way of universal self-empowerment to help people deal with the issues that come to every individual’s life, like abuse, addictions, sickness,” he said. “We educate people about the human body and the invisible form known as
Shamans Frank Austin Manyhorses and Barbara Moreau lead the Journey of the Heart lecture on Thursday and the Universal Self-Empowerment Workshop on Saturday. the spirit entity. “This is a journey of the heart — we walk
people through the absolute truth.” Manyhorses, who
has the ability to read people and their emotions and know where their bodies are out of balance, works with his partner, shaman Barbara Moreau (Angel Who Dances in the Clouds), to lead lectures, workshops and individual healing sessions. “When I look at it from a First Nations perspective, the centre is your heart. All living things come from the centre, our love, selfrespect, integrity, all things. You get to know who you really are.”
Manyhorses said the traditional methods can benefit people of all faith backgrounds because they go back to the common principle of balance. “There is universal balance where we build bridges to other cultures. We all have the right to be here and live in this multi-cultural society,” he said. “We must understand, honour and respect each other and learn what we can do for the future and for Mother Earth.” Traditional healing

William Throsby Bridges, the ﬁrst Australian general to be killed during World War I, said, “Disenchantment, whether it is a minor disappointment or a major shock, is the signal that things are moving into transition in our lives.” If you are disenchanted with your partner’s opening lead, you must signal your disappointment in the hope that he will transition -- shift -- to the suit you would like attacked. This deal, taken from my Norwegian cruise in July, caught out several pairs. Take the East cards. Your partner leads the heart king against three spades. What are your thoughts? South’s one-spade
response showed at least a ﬁve-card suit because with only four spades, he would have made a negative double. North was right to raise to two spades, despite having a minimum opening bid. Then South made a (forcing) threediamond game-try, which North rejected by signing off in three spades. When West leads the heart king, you would usually drop an encouraging nine. However, if you do that, the contract will succeed. Declarer will ruff the third heart, draw trumps, and run the diamonds for nine tricks: ﬁve spades and four diamonds. A club shift at trick two cannot cost and might be beneﬁcial. Play the heart four, discouraging
a continuation. Here, if partner gets the message and switches to the club nine (high to deny an honor), you can defeat the contract. You win with your club jack, lead a low heart to partner’s queen, and take two more club tricks. You win two hearts and three clubs before declarer can get in.
