Road plan lines street with opposition ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
North end business owners have told city hall to take their road diet plan and bury it at the bottom of the freezer. Close to 50 people, mainly owners and employees of businesses along 43rd Avenue, took to the streets Thursday at noon to protest city staff ’s idea of reducing 43rd Avenue between 27th and 32nd Streets from four lanes to three to improve safety and promote bicycle use. The three lanes would include one each way for traffic and a centre two-way, left-turn lane. The space gained by eliminating the fourth lane would be for cyclists. “The proposed lane reduction of 43rd Avenue from four lanes to two with a suicide turning lane is what has us greatly concerned,” said Harald Kober with Roko Service Ltd., located on the corner of 43rd Avenue and 29th Street, who organized the noon-hour protest. “Where has such an idea come from? Who are the people pushing this agenda?” Kober organized the crowd into four teams, who walked back and forth in all directions in the crosswalks on 43rd and 32nd Street. Protesters carried signs that read “Shame on city hall,” “We mean business,” “We are the boss,” and “Listen to us” during the 30-minute protest. Pauline Davidson, owner of Carpet Castle on 29th Street, joined the protest to support her neighbouring business owners on 43rd Avenue, and hoped city hall

This one just doesn’t make sense.” Business owners are not opposed to bike lanes, said Kober, but the lanes would serve no purpose in the commercial area. “There is no destination point for the bike,” said Kober. “Further, being an

worse.” “It’s common sense,” said Paul. “City hall did not get in touch with the people out here protesting who own these businesses to find out what’s going on. They just go ahead and do things.” Mayor Wayne Lippert, in Vancouver at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention, got wind of the protest in a phone conversation he had with Kober
Thursday morning. “I have taken all of the information presented to city hall, acknowledged receipt of it, and I can say it’s on agenda for the next council meeting with all of the e-mails and phone messages for council to make a decision,” said Lippert. “I have taken action to make sure the people are heard.” Next regular Vernon council meeting will be Tuesday, Oct. 11.

Mayor contemplates policing alternative ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Vernonâ€™s mayor believes the province should look at alternative police services. Wayne Lippert was reacting to news that Ottawa is threatening to start pulling the RCMP out of B.C. in 2014 if the province and cities do not sign a new 20-year policing contract by the end of November. â€œThe federal government is negotiating on behalf of the RCMP as far as funding a police contract and theyâ€™ve given the ultimatum of take the deal or theyâ€™re walking away,â€? said Lippert from Vancouver Thursday, where he is attending the annual Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention. â€œI believe weâ€™ll have to walk away. Itâ€™s something weâ€™ll have to look at, and the prudent thing for our citizens is to look at alternatives, whether itâ€™s a provincial police force or all of the municipalities
hiring their own police.â€? Lippert said he would have that discussion with city council. Looking at alternatives is not necessarily the action the province and its municipalities want to take, said the mayor, because the service from the RCMP has been good. But at the same time, added Lippert, B.C. canâ€™t just give the Mounties a blank cheque. â€œEssentially, thatâ€™s what this contract is that theyâ€™re presenting, a blank cheque contract,â€? said Lippert. â€œTheyâ€™ll supply policing and weâ€™ll pay, but thereâ€™s no provisions for accountability in any place.â€? The City of Vernon, in 2011, has budgeted $7.1 million to pay for RCMP officers, and $9.6 million in total police expenses, which includes prison guards and support staff. B.C. Solicitor General Shirley Bond said the province is â€œvery concerned about the
future of this negotiation,â€? and added that pursuing a provincial police force would be a â€œvery expensive, very challenging scenario to contemplate.â€? Also at UBCM, Lippert met with provincial health minister Mike de Jong to discuss the potential for more beds at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, and opening the shelled-in floors of the new Polson Tower. Lippert and Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster presented de Jong with a petition, organized by VJH doctors and the community, that contained more than 6,000 signatures, and asked if the minister had a funding announcement coming up. â€œAs much as heâ€™d like to give an announcement for the official opening of the tower (tentatively set for Oct. 13), he said he did not expect there would be such an announcement at that time,â€? said Lippert. â€œHe said they are looking at the health budget overall and that he expected he may have an answer sometime before
the end of the year. â€œEven though it sounds like no answer, Mr. de Jong is aware of the situation, he seemed positive and he appreciated the work done by the community. He said Foster is staying on top of him on this matter.â€? â€“with files from Jeff Nagel, Black Press

Access to Kalamalka Lake ramped up JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
Coldstream is going into overtime and over budget to improve safety and increase access to Kal Beach. Construction on a beach ramp from the parking lot off Husband Road to a new Kalamalka Road crosswalk will commence Oct. 13. The 86-foot long, five-foot wide ramp will provide increased access for those with mobility issues, as well as parents with strollers. The ramp, running parallel to Kalamalka Road, will replace the existing set of stairs leading down from the parking lot. The existing crosswalk will also be moved 90 feet west to accommodate the new ramp, it will line up with the entrance to the beach pullout. Crews have just a few days to get the majority of the work done, as not to disrupt operation of the
railway. “We have to work through the weekend and it requires some night work,” said Michael Stamhuis, Coldstream’s chief administrative officer. “It became a much more challenging undertaking both technically and logistically.” Work will begin in the evening Oct. 13, after the last train passes and needs to wrap up Oct. 18. Due to the overtime, the project has also come in over budget. At an estimated $71,600 for the project, the district is short $27,475. Coldstream is contributing $25,000 towards the project, Greater Vernon Parks is putting in $12,500 and a grant from the Municipal Insurance Association of nearly $12,000 has been obtained. Coldstream is hoping to cover the $27,000 shortfall with gas tax funds. In order to complete the ramp in a timely man-
ner, Coldstream is single sourcing the project – waiving its own purchasing policy that requires all purchases in excess of $30,000 go through a public tender process. Two quotes were obtained for the project, both coming within a couple hundred dollars of each other. Silver Rock Construction is able to complete the project sooner and has been hired to do the work. During construction the bike lane on the north side of Kalamalka Road will be closed during the initial four days of construction from Kalamalka General Store to Kalavista Drive. Those using the parking lot will also not be able to use the traditional beach access route while machines are working. The gate will also be closed on the path to Braeburn. The new ramp is anticipated to be completed by the end of October.

Falkland featured on DriveBC Morning Star Staff
Falkland has taken a starring role in keeping motorists safe. A new web camera near Falkland is now live on the province’s DriveBC website, providing real-time coverage of highway conditions in the area and helping motorists plan a safe journey. The web camera is located on Highway 97 at Silvernails Road near Falkland, looking southeast:http:// prd.images.drivebc.ca/bchighwaycam/pub/html/www/230.html
“Winter weather is coming to rural roads and highways across the province,” said Shuswap MLA George Abbott. “DriveBC webcams help people plan ahead and prepare, which in turn helps ensure a safer trip.” So motorists can “Know Before You Go” the province is adding 30 new web cameras to its DriveBC network this year. Priority for new web cameras is given to routes prone to extreme weather or traffic congestion, and for sites where there is not already a nearby webcam.

Event brews up food fun ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Josh Dueck was correct. The Vernon Paralympic silver medallist knew that, according to the Canada Food Guide, adult men aged 19 to 50 are recommended to consume eight-to-10 servings of fruit and vegetables per day. Unfortunately for Dueck, he listened to his Full Garlick Press teammates – Coldstream Mayor Jim Garlick, Vernon Chamber of Commerce past president Deb Leroux and Morning Star reporter Roger Knox – and incorrectly answered five. The slip-up allowed the Simply Delicious quartet of actors Matt Brown and Christine Pilgrim, Vernon Farmer’s Market president Joel Allen and Vernon councillor Mary-Jo O’Keefe to win the first Roots and Brews Food Feud, held in front of a sell-out crowd of more than 230 at the Prestige Inn Saturday. The event was part of a delightful evening of local food and beverages, hosted as a fundraiser by the Food Action Society. “It was a great evening, but some of the questions were very hard,” said O’Keefe. Simply Delicious edged Full Garlick Press 24-23 as each person was asked three individual questions. They got more points if they answered the question on their own, and less points if they asked teammates or the audience. Local naturalist Roseanne Van Ee and agrologist Kevin Murphy were the judges for the feud. Sun-FM Sunrise Show co-host Brian Martin served as emcee and quiz show host for the evening. The audience got to participate as well by answering specific questions, or they could help out the two teams if they were stuck for an answer. “It’s great to see a full house,” said society president Andrea Gunner. “We are excited and delighted to help support the incredible development of agriculture, food and culinary expertise in our region.” The capacity crowd was treated to appetizers from local farms and producers, as well as beverages from Crannog Ales, Okanagan Spirits and Gray Monk wines. The three-course, locally-sourced menu drew rave reviews. Patrons were treated to a thinly-sliced beet salad
with crumbled goat cheese, raspberry pickled onions, tiny greens with a seabuckthorn vinaigrette and honey-candied walnuts to start. The main course was a braised beef shank with organic lentil vegetable sauté, candied parsnip, baby rainbow carrots and a natural sauce reduction. A vegetarian option, consisting of a carrot press, wilted beet greens, assorted farm vegetables and organic lentil vegetable sauté, was offered. Dessert consisted of white wine poached pears with essence of green cardamom. The meal was prepared by Chef Neil Porter of the Prestige’s Ora Restaurant. Porter is an awardwinning chef which includes returning from the World Culinary Olympics in Germany in 2004 with a gold medal. Porter and his team received a well-deserved standing ovation from the appreciative crowd for the meal. “It’s always a gamble with something new, but we were very encouraged by the response,” said Wendy Aasen, one of the driving forces behind the creation of the event. “The food and beverages spoke for themselves, and the planning crew learned a lot.”

A third public hearing has been set for the City of Vernon’s city centre neighbourhood plan. The hearing will take place on Monday, Oct. 24, at 5:30 p.m. in council chambers. The hearing comes about after council voted 4-1 in favour of one of two options proposed by staff that include revisions to the plan and associated official community plan (OCP) land use designation amendments. The revisions include properties in the MacDonald Park character area west of the railway along 31st Street that are proposed to be changed from small lot single- and two-family dwelling to mixed use-medium density commercial and residential. And properties that do not front Highway 6 in the Polson Gateway character area are slated to be changed from community commercial to mixed use-medium density commercial and residential. “At the public hearing, a group of businesses wanted to retain some commercial ability and this change would allow them to do that,” said Coun. Patrick Nicol. “We would also allow buildings to go from four to six storeys over by Polson Park. Again, that was requested as part of the public
“Come and make a persuasive point for land use changes.”
— Patrick Nicol hearing.” Long-range planner Cleo Corbett explained that council directed staff to come up with some options to address property owners’ concerns in some neighbourhoods after the last public hearing held earlier this month, but also to keep in mind the public consultation work that had already been done. The second option, which council passed on at the recommendation of staff, was to include the same changes in option one but also that properties located between 33rd Street and a laneway west between 33rd and 34th Avenues which are currently designated small lot residential single- and two-family dwelling, be changed to mixed use medium density residential and commercial. “This change was not included in option one as the small lot designation is very important to providing a type
of housing that is needed for families in Vernon,” wrote Corbett in her report to council. “Areas with this designation are potentially being reduced significantly in the MacDonald Park area and other locations in the city through amendment applications.” “The recommendation doesn’t permit this but it allows another public hearing for that neighbourhood, or any other neighbourhood, to come and make a persuasive point for land use changes on this official city neighbourhood plan,” said Nicol. Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe was the only to vote against the recommendation, which was given first two readings after council rescinded first two readings of the original bylaw. Council is expected to resume its regular meeting on Oct. 24 after the public hearing where it’s possible third reading of the bylaw could be passed.
Gift of parking and transit given to shoppers ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Parking will be free for Saturday Christmas shoppers in downtown Vernon. Council unanimously passed a request from the Downtown Vernon Association for free parking and free bus transit during the annual Festival of Christmas Traditions on Friday, Nov. 25, and for free parking on the five Saturdays before Christmas, Nov. 26, Dec. 3, Dec. 10, Dec. 17 and Dec. 24. “I’m for it because it will promote travel by bus during that busy holiday season and give people a taste of transit travel,” said Coun. Shawn Lee. The request was originally brought to
council by the DVA in September, but council deferred the matter so that staff could check on the cost summary of the request. In a memo to council, finance manager Kevin Bertles estimated that free parking and
free transit on the specific dates would cost the city nearly $11,600. Bertles estimates that free parking and free transit on Nov. 25 would cost $2,519 while the five days of free parking Saturdays would cost the city just
under $9,100. “I wanted to make sure we always understand what income we’re forgoing on those kinds of things, and it wasn’t brought forward in the original presentation,” said Lee. “I don’t want to have the feeling

t seems lately, everywhere I go, everyone I see, has one burning question for me: ‘When are you going to have another baby?’ Since my daughter is now two, it appears, according to all who ask, that the clock is ticking and the stork is circling. I can literally feel the pressure on my ovaries. The short answer is I don’t know. I don’t know when, or if, I will have another. Jennifer Smith I always imagined I would have two kids... ...until I had one. As much as my adorable daughter completes me, she sure sucks a lot of physical and mental energy from me in the process. While it is getting easier, as she learns to do a few more things on her own, she still needs a lot of my attention and assistance. I can’t imagine tackling potty training, tantrums and discipline with one, while trying to breast feed, rock and change diapers and spit up on another. As a baby, my first was colicky and cranky, therefore it was a daily battle to deal with her. I struggled with post-partum depression for the first year or so with my first, so I’m scared to death that a second screaming baby will send me spiralling backwards. Doctors even warned me that it’s very likely, if I have another, PPD will return. But at least I know what to expect, and since every baby is different, maybe my second wouldn’t be as difficult? But even the best of babies are more than a handful. So as I strive to find time for myself as it is, how do I divide myself between two demanding children, while trying to remain sane? And I have just finally returned to sleeping through the night. So I wonder if all those pressuring me to have another would be willing to come over for the midnight, 3

a.m. and 6 a.m. wakings with a new baby? Maybe if my husband worked at home, it might be a different story. But five days a week or more I’m a single mom, so I don’t have that 5 o’clock relief – someone to take over when mommy’s about to lose it. And now that I’ve finally regained my pre-baby body (aside from the apron of scars and baggy eyes), I’m not so keen on ballooning into a blimp again. Then there’s all the fun that comes with pregnancy – ‘don’t eat this, don’t drink that.’ Up every hour to pee in the middle of the night amidst trying to sleep with a watermelon growing out of you. How about all the worries that haunt you throughout pregnancy? What if I have another miscarriage, as I did before I had my daughter? What if I lose the baby? What if I can’t have another baby? This may seem like a list of excuses, and as a few people have told me, perhaps I should just “suck it up and have another.” But those feather-ruffling comments are clearly a case of the ‘easier said than done.’ Of course, looking down at my blondehaired blue-eyed little girl, it was all well worth it. I wonder, if I never had another child would I regret it? But as I am just starting to thoroughly enjoy life with one, do I dare mess up a good thing with another? There’s a lot of pre-conceived notions about the only-child syndrome. Apparently I am committing some sort of crime against my daughter if I don’t give her a sibling. I don’t doubt that a sibling would bring some joy to her life, but between all the fighting for toys and attention, it also might bring her, and me, a lot of grief. Clearly this is not an easy decision (and I’m obviously struggling with it). Having a baby is a lifetime of commitment, it’s not like picking out curtains or flooring. You can’t just take a baby back because you decide you don’t like it or can’t afford it anymore. So for now, I will sit on my fence, enjoying life with one!
For a plan that aims to save every nickel and dime, things just don’t seem to add up. The B.C. government is planning to appoint a municipal auditor general in charge of reviewing the spending of cities, towns and villages. The concept has been frowned upon by civic politicians, despite assertions the municipal auditor wouldn’t overrule local government decisions. But the notion of “performance audits” made politicians wonder how far the government wants to go. We are always in favour of accountability, and have a hard time tolerating arguments that let politicians hide mistakes. But this issue is a bit thorny, given the possible agendas at play. We hear a lot from civic officials about downloaded costs from senior levels of government and how they have one revenue source: property taxes. So what if a potential municipal auditor found municipalities were running like welloiled machines? Would that finally prompt senior levels of government to adjust funding formulas? That assessment may be too optimistic. But if it can fix a broken system, perhaps it should be explored. Then again, civic officials say financial accountability is already shared through UBCM, meaning the pennies are already being pinched. Government officials placated municipal politicians by suggesting a separate oversight committee or council to ensure the municipal auditor’s independence. So they are willing to spend money to insulate a whole new level of bureaucracy that is bound to cost more money, all to see where money can be saved? At that juncture, we have to question the motivation behind a municipal auditor general. Cough up a reason, and we might find it in the public’s best interests. Until then, the math doesn’t seem to add up. — Penticton Western News

EDITOR: GLENN MITCHELL
Food for thought
ood holds power. It is connected to survival, spirituality, and culture. Food systems represent considerable potential for the powerful and the marginalized alike. As food is essential to our very human existence, it could be said that those who control the food control the people. This is why I am concerned about the recent announcement from the Upper Room Mission and can’t help but agree with the client, “Anonymous”, who wrote a letter recently regarding the Mission’s food and meal services. The Mission made a conscience choice to specifically and publicly state that it was not serving meals on the weekends because it felt it was fostering “entitlement” and it wanted clients to work toward more “selfsufficiency.” How this decision moves clients towards more self sufficiency is not obvious to me, but I do know that public judgement can serve to further marginalize and stigmatize those who are already struggling. There are people on disability assistance, elderly women who work at very low paying jobs, women who live in remote rural places and must stay in town occasionally, single mums, people who struggle to develop skills, the sick, and more who use the food services
MISSION RESPONDS A response to the letter in The Morning Star by Anonymous in regards to the Upper Room Mission. Anonymous states that most of society considers our guests dregs of society, this statement in our opinion is totally false, and because we and the community thinks this is false is the reason why the Upper Room Mission exists and has the support of the community. Our guests are not the dregs of society! While many have problems that prevent them from belonging to the mainstream of society, they are equal before the public, (who have supported the Mission for over 30 years), our staff, our volunteers, our board and most of all before God. The Mission did not stop providing food for our guests over the weekends. As board, staff and volunteers we are asking the guests for a small amount of volunteer work during the week. This is through a well-recognized program called Fresh Start. The Fresh Start pro-
of the Mission. Are we now regressing to a time when one section of society gets to judge who is the “deserving” and “undeserving” poor? And how exactly does one budget when the rent can take 80% or more of someone’s income? With the recent loss of the Vernon Women’s Centre and the ‘Cooking for Change Program’ (one of those programs that did teach life and cooking skills) there is a tangible decline in accessible food resources in Vernon. Add to that the fact that if you are low income you can only access the Vernon food bank once every two months and it strikes me that food security for the poor is a growing problem in our community. As access to food decreases the multiple concerns that stem from hunger – poor nutrition, obesity, diabetes & disease,
gram assists individuals to establish purpose and responsibility. This program was well researched and discussed with over 10 agencies in our community that work regularly with many of the guests. These professionals gave much valuable input. It was only after this consultation that the new program was put into effect. The new program was positively received by the vast majority of the guests. Any guest who has a need and is participating in the Fresh Start program, receives a care package each Friday, which amply provides for their weekend food needs. The care packages are tailored to the individual needs. The staff further works closely with each guest to see that he/she has the proper knowledge for preparing their meals. Guests have been enthusiastic about the program and some are now getting together over the weekend to prepare their meals. The tasks set before the guests vary and are minor. As an example a guest may participate by cleaning the breakfast tables or by sweeping

poor job/school performance, social isolation, and all the other pitfalls – grow. It is most certainly the Mission’s choice about what programs it wants to run and when and where. I have no quibble with that, just the manner in which the announcement was made. There are far more productive ways of encouraging and assisting those who need help than using thinly-veiled language to draw reproachful conclusions about people (hey, we can all read between the lines). The original article said the clients were positive about the change but that’s not what I am hearing on the street. It may be too ‘easy’ to come and get food at the Mission but what is the alternative if you are broke? In fact, not that long ago the Mission itself stated in the paper that it was seeing new faces and more
the floor. The board of directors will review this program with the supporting agencies of our community after a three-month trial period. The Mission has also put in place a safety network to see that no individual falls through the cracks. It is great to see a guest at the end of the week receiving his/her care package with the joy that they are not just asking for “freebies” but are rewarded for their work. The satisfaction and pride in being part of society, sets them on paths that hopefully will lead them to greater self respect. As to harassment and intimidation by the RCMP while eating. Anonymous should take the time to see what really occurs between the police and the quests. Two members of the RCMP on street patrol drop in most days during coffee hour. When this first started there were some concerns by a number of the quests. Today most feel very comfortable with the police just like all of us we have nothing to fear. Both guests and the RCMP
of the working poor. We know how easy it is to blame people for their circumstances, but I wonder what is being done on a systemic level to address food justice in our region? What is our Social Planning Council doing to attend to food security issues? Many communities are instituting bulk buying clubs, farm to cafeteria programs, community kitchen programs, community gardens, farm employment partnerships, barter systems, labour exchanges, food councils, economic development initiatives, etc. in an effort to increase food security for the poor in a proactive, skill building, and empowering way. The Mission itself has planted some produce and is talking about a garden. Why not accelerate or enlarge that initiative with clients leading the charge? Building a sustainable, equitable, and inclusive network of food resources in our community is not a small task but it can be done when we work together- clients and agencies alike. And it can be done when we decide that we all deserve not only to eat, but to be respected as well. Emily Mayne, Chairperson Vernon & District Women’s Centre Society
street patrol members are getting to know each other. As the guests have come to trust these officers, they are at ease talking to them and many even look forward to seeing these officers. In conclusion Anonymous should remember that while Christ fed the hungry, He also charged us to look after those in need in every aspect of their lives. It would be far easier just to provide meals; however, the Upper Room Mission's goal is to look at each guest as a person that requires much more than just a meal. It is our goal that our guests may become individuals who have overcome their barriers. While we realize that not everyone who comes to the Upper Room Mission will be able to overcome their problems, we will be there for them to provide them with food, clothing, counselling, computer training, medical assistance and literacy training and above all friendship. Jake Spoor Upper Room Mission, chairperson

Pay parking suggestion resurfaces at boat launch JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
With a $25,000 parking enforcement bill in hand, Coldstream has once again been offered the suggestion to make boaters pay their way. The district has employed commissionaires to enforce traffic bylaw over the summer months since 2007. Putting in 802 hours, the bill came to $25,258 – with a portion paid by Greater Vernon Parks and Recreation.
“I think that the boating public should at least pay a portion of the cost through a parking fee.” — Flo Ryan The commissionaires worked eight-hour days on the weekends from May 1 to July 1, then seven days a week, putting in 10-hour days on weekends and stat holidays.

A total of 276 tickets were issued, of which 23 were warnings and 40 were cancelled because vehicle owners agreed to move their vehicle or reconsideration was given to those launching kay-
aks or canoes. So far, 45 per cent (approximately 90) of the tickets have been paid, earning Coldstream back $2,000. Officials report that typically 85 per cent of the fees are collected, therefore the total earned back would double. Kalavista Neighbourhood Committee member Flo Ryan applauds the work Coldstream is doing to make the busy boat launch and beach area safer. “However, $25,000 plus was
a lot to spend on commissionaires,” she said. “I think that the boating public should at least pay a portion of the costs through a parking fee.” The suggestion has been made, and debated, in the past, but there are currently no plans to install parking meters at the Kalavista boat launch. It has also been suggested that during the summer months when the Kalavista launch is busy, pay parking meters would only add to the congestion.

Residents dig in to protect Coldstream Creek JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
The odd-looking trenches dug up in Creekside Park may have a number of residents scratching their heads, but they are serving a meaningful purpose. With the help of volunteers, work wrappped up on a bioswale in the park, at the corner of Kidston and Kalamalka roads, on Sunday in celebration of Rivers Day. The long ditches are swaled drainage courses, which have been dug up to catch stormwater runoff. “What it will do is protect the creek from any foreign organisms,” explains Coun. Maria Besso. “In the past, there had been some high readings of storm water going into the creek,” said Besso of a recent Ministry of Environment study that found high levels of fecal bacteria and nitrates in Coldstream Creek. Along with acting as a catchment area and diverting the stormwater, the bioswale filters runoff before it enters Coldstream Creek. To aid in the filtration process, upwards of 50 trees were planted by volunteers, members of the Society to Protect Kalamalka Lake and staff from Coldstream and the Regional District of North Okanagan Sunday. The creek flows into Kalamalka Lake, and is therefore a source of drinking water, and is also a salmon habitat. “If the fish could talk, they’d say thank you,” said Besso of the efforts to protect the creek.

Successful convention wrapping up Morning Star Staff
Efforts to take local issues to the provincial stage are wrapping up today. Politicians and administrators from Vernon, Coldstream, Lake Country, Armstrong and all B.C. local governments spent the week in Vancouver to participate in the annual Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) convention. In addition to the Annual General Meeting and policy sessions where various motions are discussed and adopted for advancement to the provincial government, mayors and councillors meet with ministers in order to solve local issues on which the provincial government has authority. “So far, this has been another successful UBCM convention,” said Lake Country Mayor James Baker. “I feel that our concerns are being taken seriously and that our collaborative approach is paying off. I also wish to acknowledge the hard work of MLA Norm Letnick

Both the minister and the district acknowledged the value of the new highway stretch under construction and the old corridor, which will be devolved to the municipality once the new highway section is in operation. Lekstrom will request that his staff work with the district to finalize the terms of the transition of the old corridor from the province to the municipality. On Wednesday council also met with the Minister of Community, Sport & Cultural Development, Ida Chong and the Minister of Health, Mike De Jong. On the same day Lake Country was showcased for its proactive approach to asset management.

With municipal elections approaching in November, B.C. business groups are renewing their pressure on contenders to slow the rapid growth of local government spending. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business has asked mayors and councillors attending the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention to sign a “taxpayer pledge” that calls on them to hold operating expense growth down to the combined increase in population and inflation, and narrow the gap between property tax rates for business and residential properties. The CFIB calculates that B.C.’s municipal operating spending rose nearly 58 per cent between 2000 and 2008, twice as fast as population and inflation grew. Sechelt Mayor Darren Inkster signed the taxpayer pledge Wednesday, as did Port Moody councillor Diana Dilworth and Coquitlam councillor Linda

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business tracks municipal spending growth. Reimer. Coquitlam council candidates Terry O’Neill and Andy Shen also stepped up, along with Vancouver mayoral candidate Suzanne Anton and three contenders for Vancouver council seats. Shachi Kurl, the B.C. director of the CFIB, said the initial response is good, considering her group was told not a single incumbent would publicly support the pledge. She’s hoping candidates for municipal office will carry the taxpayer pledge message into their campaigns. The UBCM executive issued its own analysis this spring, rebutting several years of CFIB claims that municipal spending is out of control. The UBCM analysis points to rising police, firefighting and recreation costs, as well as those imposed by senior governments such as paying for carbon offsets. Joining the CFIB in this year’s push for spending restraint is the Independent Contractors and Business Association. The ICBA produced a report detailing a similarly steep rise in municipal fees for construction, linking it to union contracts that feature pay and perks well beyond the private sector average of recent years. ICBA president Phil Hochstein said “gold plated” union contracts with wage increases beyond inflation and benefits such as cash payouts for unused sick days are a key driver of costs. “Unions are not to blame,” Hochstein said. “It is municipal politicians who have forgotten how to say no to everything but tax increases.”

The popular Run for the Cure event returns Sunday at Clarence Fulton Secondary, starting at 10 a.m.
Run for the Cure ready to roll JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
Vernon is lacing up for a cure Sunday. Hundreds of breast cancer survivors, friends, families, supporters and volunteers will unite at Clarence Fulton Secondary Sunday at 10 a.m. as the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure gets underway. “It’s an emotional, heart-wrenching day, but it’s a lot of fun,” said Lindsay Smith, volunteer co-run director, of the event that traditionally attracts 700 participants. Online donations end at midnight tonight, but donations can continue to be accepted and brought to the event Sunday. Organizers will also be at the downtown CIBC Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

accepting registrations and handing out T-shirts. On Sunday, following opening ceremonies at 9:30, a survivor parade will lead a sea of pink runners and walkers to the course (there is a fivekilometre run and two-kilometre walk). This year marks the CBCF’s 25th anniversary, and the run has become a tradition for many. While many sport costumes and pink attire, the event is stepping out this year by encouraging participants to decorate their shoes with a design that relates to who they are running for. “Our whole committee has their shoes painted,” said Smith. “We’re hoping it goes over really well.” While it can be emotional for those who have lost someone to breast cancer, or those who are battling the disease, it is also a chance for hope. Through fundraising efforts, the money raised supports initiatives in prevention, early detection, treatment, research and emerging issues in the health care workforce. “Last year we raised $100,000 which was huge for us. We’re still crossing our fingers that will happen.” The Run for the Cure is the largest, single-day, volunteer-led national event in Canada in support of breast cancer, and it’s not too late to sign up. To take part in this important fundraising event, register online at www.cbcf.org.

News Shuswap patrols educate anglers
Introducing New Fall Collections And it's all on SALE!
Morning Star Staff
Earlier this month, provincial and federal agencies joined forces to inspect and patrol Shuswap Lake for compliance with B.C.’s boating and fishing regulations. Officers from the Ministry of Environment Conservation Officer Service, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations worked together to educate and ensure compliance with fresh water fishing regulations, boating safety regulations and to inspect potentially illegal moorage sites. Three of the five inspected sites require further investigation. “Boating and fishing regulations aren’t put in place to limit people’s activities. They are there to ensure people’s safety and that fish stocks and the environment aren’t adversely impacted by human actions,” said Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. “Our officers are out ensuring people comply with these regulations so that we can all continue to take part in the outdoor activities we enjoy.” In total, six violation tickets ranging from $115 to $230 were issued for failure to produce a licence, fishing without a licence, no vessel operator’s card and illegal fishing gear. In addition, several warnings were issued for boating safety violations, and one vessel was directed to return to shore. “Fishers should be aware that there are provincewide regulations, as well as areaspecific regulations,” said Environment Minister Terry Lake. “Before you pack up your gear, make sure you familiarize yourself with what you are allowed to catch, what the limits are and what your responsibilities are when you are out on the water.”

Russians ready to drop Anchor KEVIN MITCHELL Morning Star Staff
When she’s not curling, Liudmila Privivkova of Russia is working towards a PhD in economics. With that mindset, the 25-year-old calendar girl had no trouble switching numbers with Anna Sidorova. Privivkova took over third duties and called the shots, while Sidorova tossed fourth rocks last weekend in Regina. The change, recommended by the team’s coach, paid instant dividends as Privivkova pocketed $12,000 by winning the 30-team Schmirler Curling Classic. “It was pretty tough,” smiled Privivkova, after a 90-minute practice on sheet five Thursday at the Vernon Curling Club. “We played 10 games and we made (won) two tiebreakers to make the playoffs. We beat Cheryl Bernard (of Calgary) twice.” Privivkova, who went 3-6 at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, lost 4-2 to Bernard in last year’s cashspiel final. She enjoyed the change in Regina. “It was good. It (playing third) is different because you have to control the weight of the stone from the sweeper position.” The Privivkova rink, which also includes Ekatrina Galkina and Nkeiruka Ezekh, will now chase a share of the $35,00 women’s purse in the Twin Anchors Classic at the Vernon club. The Russians are especially stoked this season since the European Championships are in Moscow. A total of 24 foursomes began play Thursday night with Alyssa Kyllo representing Vernon. First place is worth $7,500 with

Ludmila Privivkova of the Russian national team watches her rock as her teammate Ekaterina Galkina sweeps during a practice Thursday. the runner-up earning $5,500 and the losing semifinalists pocketing $4,000. The women’s final goes Sunday at 3 p.m. Kyllo, a 20-year-old, third-year UBC Okanagan student, has added 15-year-old Shayna Doll to her roster. Amy Edwards is third and Zetteh Gunner plays second. Kyllo won’t be in awe of Privivkova or the likes of former world champion Kelley Law of New Westminster, ex-Canadian winner
Kelly Scott of Kelowna and veterans Marla Mallet of Langley and Shannon Kleibrink of Calgary. “Shayna doesn’t recognize any names and the rest of us know what they have done and where they’re going,” said Kyllo. “At the end of the day, any team can be beaten so you just have to play it.” Kyllo and Edwards have mutual respect as they discuss strategy.
“She’s definitely got some valid points. She knows what she’s talking about. She’s very intelligent,” said Kyllo of Edwards. Kyllo faces Scott in today’s 10:30 draw with Privivkova meeting Nicole Backe of Nanaimo in the 4:30 draw. The women earn $100 for each round-robin victory. Vernon’s Chelan Cotter is second for Patti Knezevic’s Prince George entry. On the men’s side, there are 16 rinks going for $24,000. Defending champion Kevin Koe of Edmonton is back and opens against young Tyler Klymchuk of Langley in today’s first draw at 1 p.m. Koe is seeking a third straight win in Vernon. He brushed back 22-year-old Russian Andrey Drozdov 5-2 in last year’s final. Saskatchewan’s Pat Simmons will team up with Koe, replacing retired third Blake MacDonald. Simmons skipped Saskatchewan at four straight Briers from 2005-08, and threw fourth stones for Saskatchewan skip Steve Laycock at the 2011 Tim Hortons Brier. Simmons, 36, is a chiropractor in Moose Jaw. Vernon’s Jim Cotter, who won the provincials last year, has added Tyrel Griffith of Kelowna, who will play second. Kevin Folk moves up to third and Rick Sawatzky throws lead rocks and sweeps until he drops. Trevor Perepolkin is the other Vernon rink on the men’s side. The men’s final goes Monday at 3 p.m. The semis are at noon. The 8 p.m. Saturday draw is open free to the public, followed by a dance with entertainment by Mace, in the lounge.
Undefeated Vipers and Warriors battle in Westside Morning Star Staff
The two hottest teams in the Interior Conference will tangle tonight when the Vernon Vipers visit the Westside Warriors at Royal LePage Place. The Warriors improved to 3-0 and a share of first place in the B.C. Hockey League standings after their 3-2 comeback win over the Salmon Arm SilverBacks Wednesday night at the Sunwave Centre. The Vipers, the only other undefeated team in the Interior at 2-0, are looking to build on a solid weekend sweep of the 0-2-0-1 ‘Backs. Vernon hosts the Prince George Spruce Kings Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. The 1-1 Kings are getting an early offensive boost from the 18-year-old Fitzgerald triplets – Leo (3+1), Gerry (2+2) and Myles
(2G) – who have combined for 11 points in their first two games. Former SilverBack Paul De Jersey and 17-year-old sniper Jujhar Khaira each have 2+2 for Prince George. Wednesday night, the Warriors needed a third-period rally to brush back Salmon Arm. They used singles by Connor nnorr Dempsey, on the powerplay, and sec-ond star Brett McKinnon, who potted the winner with 30 seconds left in regulation to cap the comeback. Salmon Arm keeper Kurt Williams garnered first-star honours with 45 saves. In other Interior action Wednesday night, Chad Brears scored midway through the third period as the Merritt Centennials salvaged a
3-3 draw with the host Trail Smoke Eaters at Cominco Arena. Clayton Chessa and Clint Romanchuk pegged the Smokies to an early lead before Brent Fletcher answered for the Cents at 12:41 of the first period. Merritt’s Syvain Harper and Trail’s Adam Boytinck swapped singles in the second period. The Cents are 1-1-1, the Smokies aare 0-2-1. In the lone Coastal tilt Wednesday night, first star Cohen Adair recorded a natural hat trick, including a pair of shorthanded goals, as the Powell River Kings grounded the host Cowichan Valley Capitals 5-3 at the Island Savings Centre. With the Kings up 3-0, the Capitals hit the
board with 20 seconds to play in the second period on a goal by Matthew Grant. Matt Brown cut the lead to one at 5:22 of the second period, but Powell River’s Teagan Waugh, assisted by Adair, netted the eventual winner less than a minute later to help the Kings move atop the Coast at 3-0. The Caps are in second at 2-1. SNAKE BITES: Penticton Vees’ captain Logan Johnston had his 20-game suspension upped to 25 following a recent appeal by the team to the BCHL disciplinary committee. Johnston received the suspension for cross-checking Cody Michelle of Coquitlam Express during a Sept. 17 exhibition game. Michelle is reported to have a broken jaw as a result of the incident and could be on the sidelines for two months.

Lakers bottle up Cats Morning Star Staff
NATALIA VIGNOLA/MORNING STAR
Fulton Maroons' Hana Ouchi (facing) deftly sends the ball over the net and past VSS Panthers' Sonora Bohaychuk in North Zone Senior Girls Volleyball League action Tuesday at Fulton Secondary.
The host Pen-High Lakers stopped the VSS Panthers 25-16, 25-14 in the bronze-medal match of a senior boys volleyball tournament Saturday. The Kelowna Owls swept the Mt. Boucherie Bears of West Kelowna in the final. “It was a good start of the season for the Panthers in a rebuilding year,” said VSS head coach Germano Brunello. “With very few athletes at the junior and senior level, a team comprised of Grades 9-12 was created.” The Cats squeezed past the George Elliot Coyotes of Winfield 2-0 (25-22, 25-23) to open the round-robin, followed by a 25-15, 25-13 loss to Pen-High. VSS later outlasted the Kelowna Christian School Knights 29-27, 25-16 to end up second in preliminary action. In the championship round, VSS started by grounding the Princess Margaret Mustangs of Penticton 25-18, 25-22 before the Owls stopped the Panthers 25-22, 25-22 in the semis. Mt. Boucherie upset the Lakers to make the finals and send PenHigh to the bronze match. “For an inexperienced team, they performed well, were composed and played very sound defensively.
With this crew, VSS has potential to do well with more experience and growth,” said Brunello. Ryan Ryder was chosen as a tournament all-star. The Fulton Maroons went 3-2 at the UBC Senior Girls Invitational last weekend. The Maroons beat Duchess Park Condors of Prince George 2-0 (2516, 25-18), iced St. Thomas Aquinas Fighting Saints of North Vancouver 2-1 (21-25, 25-18, 15-11) and lost 2-0 (25-19, 25-16) to Surrey Christian to finish second in their pool. On Saturday, Fulton defeated Dover Bay Dolphins of Nanaimo 25-12, 25-19, but then fell 25-21, 25-20 to Highland Raiders of Comox. Six-foot-one blocker Kolby Richter was solid in the middle, averaging four blocks per match, Laura Rozka came through with some clutch hits from the power position and an injured Christie Allen played through a sprained ankle to contribute some tough serves and well-placed hits. Kelli Watson ran a varied attack as setter and showed great composure overall. Defensive specialist Jessica Houghton was consistent on serve receive and Hana Ouchi, Alana Young, Danielle Olson, Jacquie Banks and Allie Sheehan all
stepped up when needed. The Maroons turned back VSS 3-0 (25-12, 25-8, 25-22) in North Zone League play Tuesday night at Fulton. “Overall I was happy with our team’s play,” said Fulton head coach Sharon Shaigec. “It is still very early in the season so we have lots of room for improvement.” Richter and Ouchi crushed the ball in the middle and recorded six outright blocks. Watson continued to show leadership and composure running the Fulton offence. The Maroons host the Seaton Sonics in Tuesday league play (5:30). The Vernon Christian Royals rallied from their last-place pool finish to stop Fulton 2-0 (26-24, 25-19) and ground Princess Margaret Mustangs of Penticton 2-1 (25-22, 22-25, 15-13) to earn a berth in the semifinals of the UBCO Heat Junior Boys Invitational. “Every game on Friday was close, but we came up just a few points short each match,” said Royals’ coach Jason Ree. “On Saturday, the boys really focused an minimized their mistakes.” The Royals finished fourth, losing out to powerful Pen-High in the semis, and then dropping a close match to Mt. Boucherie in the bronze-medal tilt.
Panthers pull comeback Morning Star Staff
51-yard sprint followed by a two-point convert up the middle. Alder finished with 10 tackles, while Froom registered one sack and one fumble recovery. “It was a solid effort by all the boys,” said Panther head coach Dave Tetrault. “Zac showed an exceptional ability to find open space. I was impressed with the heart he showed in the second half being 12 down and coming back. Offensive co-ordinator Tim Thorpe has done a great job getting our new players up to speed on assignments.” Fulton’s Caleb McCuaig hauled in TD passes of 44 and 24 yards from Tye Kitzman, while Kitzman rambled nine yards for another score. Davron Polok registered a pair of two-point conversions. Max Chapman had 12 touches for 81 yards, while Kitzman carried seven times for 64 yards and Polok rushed five times for 41 yards. Kitzman was 5-for-12, passing for 109 yards with one interception. Darrien Broomfield made two catches for 31 yards, while Liam Curran had a 10-yard reception. Polok led the Maroons with a dozen tackles, while Trevor Feeney had nine, Brandon Isaac five and Brett Shaigec ★★★ ★★★ three. Feeney had one fumble recovery. “It was a well-played and entertaining jayvee football game,” said Fulton head coach Mike Scheller. “Both teams With the purchase of any size Donair executed well, and gave a lot of effort.

The VSS Panthers rallied to ground the Fulton Maroons 32-22 in exhibition junior varsity high school football action Tuesday at Grahame Park. Shifty tailback Zac Kronbauer led the Cats with 23 carries for 230 yards and three touchdowns, opening the scoring with a 65-yard romp on a pitch. He ran in the two-point convert. Safety Jon Garvie picked off a Fulton pass early in the second quarter, but the Cats failed to capitalize and the Maroons responded with two TDs before the break. The third quarter began with a Fulton defensive stop and ensuing touchdown for a 20-8 lead. VSS replied when Kronbauer scampered 74 yards for a TD and Garvie ran in the convert eight minutes into the third quarter. The Panther defence made a critical stop led by hard-tackling linebackers Ben Alder and Brayden Lodder, sparking a 70-yard TD run by wideout Travis Froom off a reverse from halfback Brandon Richter. Kronbauer completed the scoring on a

Polok played great at dee, and was always hustling and

Vernon players to wear letters Morning Star Staff
A pair of Vernon products will wear letters for the coming B.C. Major Midget Hockey League season with the Okanagan Rockets. Mat Lambert and Mac Ferner were named alternate captains along with Mitchell Cook of Kelowna. Ferner is the son of former Vernon Viper head coach Mark Ferner, now with the WHL Everett Silvertips. Returning captain Josh Ellis will once again wear the C for the Rockets. Ellis posted 29 points while playing in all 40 games last season. “Obviously being new to the program this season, I relied heavily on what I learned about Josh. After
speaking to others involved from last year, it was a no-brainer to put the captaincy back on Josh,” said Rockets’ head coach James Eccles. "Having Mat and Mitch back this season means a lot to our club. They are the only 17-year-olds we have and we felt that they would be a great support system for Josh. Mackenzie Ferner has really impressed me with his leadership qualities since arriving back from camp with the Kamloops Blazers." The Rockets split their weekend series (2-3, 4-2) with the Greater Vancouver Canadians last weekend at the Capital News Centre.
Steve Clark collected both the team MVP and Top Offensive Player awards at the Armstrong Senior Shamrocks annual year-end banquet last weekend. Clark, a WLA senior A draft pick of the Nanaimo Timbermen, led the ‘Rocks with 28 goals and 11 assists in just 11 regular-season games. Shamrock of the Year went to Chad Pounder; Top Defensive Player was Trin Johnson; Volunteer of the Year went to Gerald Luttmerding; Coach’s Choice was Brett Logan; Most Inspirational Player was Brent (Pez) Anderson; Top Rookie went to Logan Strohm; Manager’s Choice was Tim Rice; Playoff MVP went to Jarrett Medhurst; and Most Sportsmanlike went to Gord (China White) Roberts. As tradition dictated, the event included a round of golf at Royal York followed by a steak dinner and awards ceremony. Playing in 32-degree heat, Marc Wagner won the long drive and Shaun Koenig took the KP. “It was a great year topped off by a great windup,” said Shamrocks’ president Jeff Hanley, who praised the club for its runnerup showing in the Shaw Cup finals. “I am really excited
Steve Clark accepts the team MVP and Top Offensive Player awards at the Armstrong Senior Shamrocks year-end awards banquet. about the vast improvement in play from everyone on the team towards the end of the season and into playoffs. I am really liking our chances for next year.” Special mention went to Owen Siddall, the Shamrocks’ long-time back up goalie, who announced his retirement at the banquet. The always amiable and charismatic Siddall has been an inspiration to the players, who were shocked to hear of his decision. Siddall did say he will be playing with the masters next year. Overshadowing the entire day was the absence of 18-year-old Cullen Rowan, who died
last week in a workplace accident. Rowan was a junior Shamrock but played up with the seniors many times and was instrumental in the playoff success that they had this year. His jersey was hung in a place of honor during the ceremony and his presence was felt by all who attended. “Cullen always had a smile on his face and played for us with a passion almost never seen in someone as young as he was,” said Hanley. “He stepped up for us each and every time we asked him too and never let his teammates down. He was a great Shamrock and will be sorely missed.”

What do you drive?
Are you a junior aged 6-17? Would you like to give curling a shot this fall for free? The Vernon Curling Club is starting its junior program season with a free junior clinic for beginners on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 10 a.m. until noon. The event is open to the public, and all interested juniors are invited to the club. Participants will receive instruction on the basics of curling, such as sweeping and delivery. “They can then decide if they would like to join one of our junior programs,” said Jim Cotter, who represented B.C. at last year’s Tim Hortons Brier and is one of the junior coaches. “We are positive that after you experience the fun and excitement of the ‘Roaring Game’ just once, you will want to join us for an entire season of exercise, entertainment and enjoyment.” For younger curlers aged 6-9, the Little Rockers program uses smaller, lighter stones to allow kids to play, and the curling rings (called the house) are painted just halfway up the sheet to make game play fun and successful. The focus is on having lots of fun and meeting friends in a friendly atmosphere where they will learn the basic techniques of curling. Little Rockers meet twice weekly on Mondays from 3:30-5 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m.-noon., starting Saturday, Oct. 15. Curlers aged 9-17 of any skill level can play in the junior program. At the beginning of the season, curling novices receive instruction and practise skills while more advanced juniors get started right away with game play. Teams are created consisting of novice and advanced curlers, and they play games throughout the year. “The focus of Vernon Curling Club’s junior program is having fun, making friends and being courteous and sportsmanlike,” said Cotter. “Throughout the year, all curlers improve skills and receive help from our knowledgeable, friendly team of instructors. These include competitive, provincial and national-level athletes such as Dave Merklinger and T.J. Perepolkin.” Juniors play twice weekly on Mondays 3:30-5:30 and on Saturdays 10 a.m.-noon, but can attend one, or both, each week as they please, starting Oct. 15. Juniors simply need flexible pants, warm clothing and a clean pair of running shoes. For Little Rockers, bike or hockey helmets are recommended. Children in Little Rockers pay $50 per season, while kids and teens in the junior program pay $70 per season. Parents can register their kids by dropping by the club or by calling the office at 250-542-6713.

Chris Hinton from the Two Eagles Golf Course in Kelowna shot an even-par 72 Monday in the Callaway IPGA Tour championship at Canoe Creek in Salmon Arm.

Mountain FC topples U13s Morning Star Staff
The Thompson Okanagan Football Club U13 Girls bowed 4-3 to Mountain FC from Burnaby/North Shore in EA Sports B.C. Premier Soccer League action Sunday at Beasley Park in Lake Country. The team features only two Vernon girls â€“ Cayleigh Graham and Caleb Pope â€“ and Graham made history when she scored the franchiseâ€™s first goal early in the first half. Graham intercepted a Mountain FC defenderâ€™s pass, deked past the
one remaining defender and used a solid strike high into the net. Mountain came back strong to take a 2-1 lead, until a handball resulted in a Thompson Okanagan penalty shot tying the score. After again falling behind, Graham put a ball through to a winger at the edge of the six-yard box tying the game again at 3-3. Mountain FC netted the winner in injury time with seconds left. Pope, a keeper, is expected to start against Surrey in Cloverdale this Sunday.

Another $24 million goes to staff up natural resource permit offices, which are backlogged after amalgamation of various ministry functions. NDP leader Adrian Dix leapt on that announcement, saying it proves that the B.C. Liberals starved the regional offices. He’s right on that. For example, the resource ministry’s regional director for Skeena told the Bulkley-Nechako regional district board this spring that he has 30 per cent less staff than five years ago. Some of that is a result of ending duplication of forest, energy and other ministries, but by this spring there were 65 independent power projects waiting for approval in Skeena alone. Of course the NDP would fix that backlog by killing off the projects, and presumably break up the natural resources ministry again, to ramp up their beloved government jobs. The NDP also jumped on B.C. Liberal MLA John Les for going to high-unemployment Nanaimo and suggesting people should look north where jobs are going begging. Construction company Ledcor had job fairs in Prince George and Chetwynd in early September, looking for hundreds of truck drivers, heavy equipment operators, drillers, blasters,
mechanics, surveyors and labourers for the Willow Creek coal mine in Tumbler Ridge. Another job fair was held in Fort St. James around the same time, looking for equipment operators for the Mount Milligan copper-gold mine. I had a chat a couple of weeks ago with a grader operator in Dawson Creek, working in the gas patch. Most of the pickups he sees on job sites have Alberta licence plates. So let’s say you’re an able-bodied unemployed guy sitting in Nanaimo, waiting for a job to come to you. If that’s how you think the economy works, it’s no surprise if your preferred political message is Dix’s 1960s socialist blather about the government forcibly sharing the wealth. And it’s no surprise that you’re unemployed. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins trashed the Prince Rupert port announcement as a payoff to local aboriginal people for a potash facility. “The usual Liberal policy of giving natives a veto on new projects has got to end,” Cummins said, demonstrating once again that he understands nothing about the evolution of this issue in the past 20 years. In summary, Clark’s jobs plan is to continue Gordon Campbell’s Pacific gateway strategy. The opposition parties are reheating decades-old failed options they hope will smell better than a stale three-term government. And B.C. is, as always, at the mercy of world events.

District blooms at provincial event Morning Star Staff
Lake Country is blooming. Community participation and the use of public art have won the District of Lake Country its first award at the recent provincial Communities in Bloom Awards Ceremony. “Lake Country is such a beautiful and diverse place, filled with natural land-
scapes, tended fields, vibrant gardens and community art,” said Lake Country Coun. Noreen Guenther. “We are so pleased to be recognized for the hard work and dedication of the community.” The City of Kelowna also received recognition for mentoring the district through its debut into the inter-
national beautification program. The annual Communities in Bloom program is a friendly competition that encourages municipalities to foster civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through local gardens, community programs and green spaces. Each year, members
of the local community and city staff create a submission package highlighting the horticultural features of the community and tour judges around the area in August. This year the neighbouring cities took their mentorship to a new level and partnered on a common presentation theme: Art & Agriculture.

It started with an idea 21 years ago. Vernonâ€™s own patron saint of the arts, the late Marie Fleming, was attending a Vernon centennial committee meeting when she suggested a theatre be built to commemorate Vernonâ€™s 100th anniversary. â€œIt was a bold thought, and indeed a few eyebrows were raised, but the committee, in which Marie served as member, readily endorsed it,â€? remembers Paul Jones, who has come to know the birth of Vernonâ€™s very own Performing Arts Centre well as one of its original board members. Like Fleming, Jones was and still is a consummate volunteer, an artist, writer and sports and arts patron, who was on board with the idea of a grand-scale theatre being built in Vernon â€“â€“ a place that would attract a broad spectrum of international and domestic entertainers, which the community would be proud of. â€œWhen we were doing the spade work, we were told this is a hockey town, forget it, what was needed was an arena,â€? he said. â€œThatâ€™s why they bundled the arena with the theatre, and both went through. It was good for Vernon to get both.â€? After agreeing to sit on the board of what is now the Vernon and District Performing Arts Society (PAC), a position he held until just recently, Jones will be among the many patrons, volunteers and dignitaries who will be out in the audience celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre on Saturday. â€œOver the years, devotion to the cause has never wavered,â€? he said. â€œExpertise, financial support and sheer hard work have been given instinctively. And through it all, Marie Fleming and a few dedicated others have remained the thread that has kept the dream intact. â€œMarie was tenacious,â€? adds Sigrid Ann Thors, who moved back to Vernon after working as a teacher from 1970 to 1986, and serving as a city councillor. â€œShe sent me word in every community I lived in, asking for membership contributions to the society... I had just come back to Vernon in 2001 and Marie saw me on the street outside the Bean Scene. She said â€˜you should sit on the board.â€™ I told her I was here for family reasons, but she didnâ€™t seem to hear me as the next thing she said is â€˜Iâ€™ll give you a call.â€™â€? A month later Thors was on the board, and the month after that she became president and has remained in that position ever
MORNING STAR FILE PHOTOS
An architect looks over the beginning stage construction of the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. The late Marie Fleming, below right, with then B.C. Lt.-Gov. Iona Campagnolo and Lori Hancock, cut the ribbon officially opening the centre Oct. 1, 2001. since. Flemingâ€™s â€œtenacityâ€? and passion for the Performing Arts Centre was also felt by the centreâ€™s current executive director Pamela Burns Resch, who after moving to Vernon from Winnipeg, was approached by Fleming to purchase a membership. â€œI remember being impressed with this woman, and her dedication,â€? said Burns Resch, who also remembers attending shows at the Vernon Recreation Centre auditorium before the Performing Arts Centre was built. â€œI was excited when I came to this theatre to have a soft seat with a number on it.â€? All those now involved with the theatre, or who love to attend shows there, have Fleming to thank. It was she along with fellow arts patron Neil Wong and the support of then mayor Anne Clark, who rounded up the troops to form the PAC society. The first board consisted of Jones, Wong, Carol Schroeder, Cecil Schmidt, Kathleen Lainsbury, Gail Short, Michael Tindall, with Fleming at the helm, and in 1991, with the aid of federal and provincial grants, consultants were hired to study the feasibility of developing a performing arts facility. â€œTheir report, presented on March 30, 1992, indicated a theatre with a capacity of 750 seats would meet the needs of the community well into the future,â€? said Jones.
The board next needed to sell the idea to the people, and a referendum was authorized by the Greater Vernon Parks and Recreation District (GVPRD) to purchase land for the theatre. The referendum passed on Oct. 17, 1993, and now it was up to the city to find the appropriate piece of land. â€œThey searched around for places to put it â€“â€“ a big enough property that wouldnâ€™t cost an arm and a leg,â€? said Jones. â€œI think they looked at 30 pieces of property before they selected the final site.â€? The city solved the problem by looking close to home â€“â€“ on land that sat adjacent to the Vernon Recreation Complex. By doing
arts B ! CENTRE YEARS IN THE MAKING that they solved the parking problem, which was a key issue, said Jones. The call then went out to architectural firms to draw up conceptual plans for the facility. â€œAlthough there was an enthusiastic response, none of the designs were selected, primarily because of cost. It was estimated that the most suitable design would exceed $10.9 million to build,â€? said Jones. With progress stalling for almost a year, local architect Doug Huggins, one of the founding members of Vernonâ€™s Powerhouse Theatre, offered the PAC a conceptual design that embodied all the features necessary in a modern community theatre, at an affordable price, said Jones. Huggins soon set out to work with a consortium of local architectural firms. Together, they developed a design, and once again the taxpayers were called upon to approve it, and another referendum was called. On Nov. 20, 1999, the referendum passed with a substantial majority, and soon after, Jack Peters and David Hesketh stepped in to help establish a foundation that would help defray any operational costs. The fundraising campaign raised more than $700,000, with the funds remaining in perpetuity. â€œThe people that got involved never looked backwards. They were always going forwards. It was, we are going to have a theatre and if we hit a roadblock, we are going to go around it,â€? said Jones. It was onwards and upwards, literally, as construction on the theatre began with the official ground breaking Aug. 1, 2000. â€œIâ€™ll never forget finally seeing that tower four storeys high. It was just a big hole when I took over as president,â€? said Thors, who around that time oversaw the hiring of the centreâ€™s first executive director, Michael Cade. On Oct. 1, 2001, the community at large gathered at the centre to see its first stage production, Forever Plaid. Ribbons were cut, speeches were made, and Fleming was recognized by the then lieutenant governor of B.C., Iona Campagnolo, for her tireless dedication to seeing a theatre rise in Vernon. And the shows have gone on. Thanks to the establishment of the Ticket Seller box office, managed from day one by Stuart Benoit, audiences have been able to purchase tickets not only for PAC shows, but for productions across the board, including in other venues such as Caravan Farm Theatre, Powerhouse Theatre, Wesbild Centre, the list goes on.

Besides renting the facility out to touring groups, and local organizations, the PAC society has also become a presenter, bringing in shows from dance, theatre, family entertainment and special presentations. “What’s neat about the theatre is it works so closely with the volunteer community. We get subsidies from the government for our society programs, but volunteers are the real reason why we can keep the costs down,” said Burns Resch. “Through grants, we are delivering services that couldn’t be done by just the private sector.” Local sponsorship/ donations have also contributed highly to the centre’s presentation series, and Thors believes the Performing Arts Centre fills a need in the community –– by providing subsidies to groups who would normally not be able to afford tickets to a large theatre performance. “Young people have the opportunity to attend shows through the EyeGo program. Thanks to community sponsors, non-profits can get tickets for their volunteers. We also have a special relationship with the Family Resource Centre, so if anyone can’t afford to go to a show we present, we will find a way for them to attend. We

There’s a broad spectrum that you have to cover, and it seems we do that. There’s something here for everybody...

Moneyball: ★★★★1/2 out of 5
ennett Miller’s Moneyball, based on the best selling book by Michael Lewis, is an especially unlikely candidate to hit a home run as a baseball movie. I say unlikely, simply Jason Armstrong because this story spends such little time actually on the baseball field. But, although this is as “front office” as sports fare can get, Moneyball emerges as one of the more riveting sports films in recent memory. Really, how many flicks dive into the nuances of how the game really works: the jostling of the scouts, the power struggles, the balancing of the books, the piecing together of the club, the locker room fireworks, etc. It’s fascinating stuff, when done well. And make no mistake, Moneyball does it very, very well. The plot follows Oakland A’s general manager Billy
Brad Pitt stars as Oakland As general manager Billy Beane, with Jonah Hill as a numbers whiz, in the winning feature Moneyball. Beane (played by Brad Pitt) through the club’s memorable 2002 season. After choking in the ’01 divisional playoffs to the wealthier, more powerful Yankees (New York stormed back from a 2-0 deficit to win the series, three games to two), Beane and his crew are faced with the task of losing many of their guns to free agency, yet still trying to compete with a bargain basement allowance. Knowing full well the system of finding the most
talented athletes and throwing cash at them is flawed, Beane charts a different course for his team. Recruiting an Ivy League graduate (Jonah Hill), a whiz with computers and statistics, the GM attempts to re-build the A’s by using other team’s castoffs (rejected for various reasons, from age to injuries), so long as they come cheap and can get on base. It doesn’t matter if Oakland has to walk its way to the pennant, just so long as they win
–– Beane will take it. The problem with this new system? It’s new. The dinosaurs of baseball simply refuse to stand for tinkering with a formula that has been in place for more than 100 years. And thus, you have your behind-thescenes drama. I won’t spoil the ending. Shoot, you could Wikipedia the Oakland Athletics and find out how it all comes together for yourself. Just know that Moneyball is a winner. Pitt brings a genuine human element to the lead role. You don’t overly love Billy Beane, which is probably an impossible emotion to feel in regards to a major league baseball executive anyway, but you empathize with his struggles, you cheer for him on the home stretch, and you relate to his desire to not necessarily win, but to make a mark, both professionally and as a dad. (And by the way, Kerris Dorsey steals every scene she’s a part of as Beane’s daughter.) Director Miller (Capote) has a good eye too. Moneyball is one good looking film. You don’t even have to enjoy the game of baseball to like it, but it doesn’t hurt. The feature is currently playing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

His three-octave voice has been heard as far as China, where Parks was the headline act for a CCTV entertainment special that was broadcast to more than 600 million people. He wrote and performed My Windows World specifically for the program, which tells the emotionally touching story of an orphan child with AIDS looking out his bedroom window, longing to be with the other children he sees playing outside. Currently, Parks is forming a band with sideman Louis Ortega from the Texas Tornadoes, and is in preproduction for an album. He is also enjoying the beauty of the Okanagan while on this current visit, said local resident and Juno nominated artist Nancy Nash, a.k.a. Sazacha Red Sky, who is promoting Parks performances while in the valley. “He just meant to relax, catch
his breath a little underneath our stellar starry skies and to gaze at the splendor of Okanagan Lake that lies vast to north and south beneath where he parked his rig, and to sample our excellent brands of red vino, but the listeners have other plans,” she said. Parks will perform Saturday at the Killiney Beach Community Centre, located at 516 Udell Rd., at 7:30 p.m. All proceeds will go to the Rainbow Animal Shelter, which is operated by Nash. Admission is $10 (cash) at the door. Another concert has been added for Friday, Oct. 7 at Lorenzo’s Café, east of Enderby. The show starts at 8 p.m. and reservations can be made by calling 250-838-6700. More information on Parks is available at www.johnandrewparks.com.

It’s been over a week since John Andrew Parks entered the North Okanagan in his bus towing a classic blue-boy Harley, safely snugged into its own mini trailer. Stopping by Hubert’s Restaurant in Lumby to indulge in some of their famous red cabbage and lobster, Parks is in the valley after being on the road for almost a year on his U.S. tour. And he is about to show locals why he is considered a legend in his own right, when he gives two performances, starting Saturday at the Killiney Beach Community Centre on the westside of Okanagan Lake. Parks is described as a songwriter’s songwriter, a poet, and a storyteller. He is the man behind hits for such musical legends as Kenny Rogers, Marianne Faithful, Odetta, and Lynn Anderson. As Rogers once said about his hit song Planet Texas, which Parks penned, on an NBC television special, “John Andrew Parks is one of the greatest singer/ songwriters I’ve heard in 20 years, and whether or not you like this song you have never heard anything like it before.” Signed by Bruce Lundvall, and given a record deal with Capitol Records where legends such as J.D. Souther, Billy Preston, Albert Lee, and Chris Spedding (The Beatles) are his music making sidemen and friends, Parks is said to be approachable, down to earth, likeable –– a true Texan with a sexy drawl and a story to tell.

Great-grandfather Arend Bouman (seated), grandfather Arend Bouman holding his son, Art Bouman, Roy Bouman’s dad, and bakers in front of the deck oven at the new bakery, in this 1934 photo. The Bouman family has been in the baking business since 1880, when Andries Bouman opened his bakery in Zaandam, the Netherlands, using an oven that was fired with coal. The bakery was taken over by his son, Arend Bouman, Roy Bouman’s great-grandfather (centre) in this photo taken in 1912. He eventually moved into larger premises next door but kept the building. This was used in the Second World War by the Dutch Underground as a place to de-grease the weapons dropped by the Allied forces and also as a hiding place when needed.
A long tradition of baking

And in 2011, Roy Bouman, a baker for 33 years, pops mini cream puff shells into the oven at Sweet Caroline’s, the Vernon bakery he opened in 1996 and named for his wife. Admitting he’s not a morning person, Bouman begins his day at 6 a.m. “I still enjoy what I do — I enjoy the creativity of it,” he said. The sixth generation of Bouman bakers has set up a permanent display at the bakery of historical photos that detail his family’s 131 years in the baking business.
During the Second World War, everything was rationed and there was little of anything. Karel Bouman had found a source to make small cakes that did not require a rationing coupon. He and his bakers worked on these for two days, and customers turned up hoping to get one of these small cakes for their families, as shown in this 1943 photo. The sign on the bakery advertises taai taai, a chewy, molasses gingerbread that is an age-old Dutch specialty.

A magical day at Mabel Lake DOUG MAVES Special to The Morning Star
The small car sped north from Lake Country, raucous inside with the excitement of new friends and old anticipating a fine Okanagan fishing trip for Chinook salmon. The scenic hills and lakes surrounding the roads seemed to lead us through the morning mist into the sun already burning on the waters of the Shuswap River where it flowed into Mabel Lake. I had never seen the river so high, flush with early summer rain and late snowmelt. One mountain still shone white-capped in the early dawn of that late July day. Captain Rod Hennig waited at our rendezvous near Rivermouth Marina, and our cooler of food and our personal gear was soon loaded aboard the red and silver Thunderjet. As usual, he was comfortably camped on the lake for his annual working “staycation” with his family, in their traditional way. The Chinook fishing news was grim. No salmon had yet entered the lake, probably held back by the massive, turbulent brown flow of the Fraser River at appropriately named Hell’s Gate. The consummate professional, Rod was ready with his back-up plan, the hunt for Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout or Bull Trout. The Lakers and the Bulls were misnomers, actually members of the char family, not trout at all. We made obligatory trolls up and down the salmon runs on the west side of the lake. No fish were spotted on the sensitive sonar equipment of his boat and we were soon cruising north again to prime rainbow country. The cribbage game started in the comfortable cabin of our craft, and we played as Rod hunted our prey. My friend Karen was the birthday girl so she would fight our first fish, the games we played would be for bragging rights only. Her annual present from me, the glow about her on those trips was worth every penny to watch. My new friend Dawn was with us, and Karen’s new friend Doc had chipped in money and his time to accompany us. The hard-fighting rainbows started hitting the lures, and card games were soon forgotten as we won and lost our battles with them. We landed nine as I recall,
(The 1st eight chapters of Rev. 21 take us to beyond the Millenium.) John is taken back to the commencement of Christ’s earthly reign.) Rev.21:10: “that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.” The Apostle John saw a temple city (“built by Yahweh:” Jer. 31:38) composed of living persons “having the glory of God” vs. 11, possessed by the Saints and revealed at the return of the Lord. The glory of the spiritual Jerusalem will beautify the literal city.

Dawn and Karen with one of the massive Lake Trout caught at Mabel Lake this summer. keeping three and releasing the rest. Many more outwitted us far from the boat with their speed and twisting aerobatics. Doc caught one 10 inches longer than any he had caught before, and as I watched him pose for pictures through my lens I realized once more how lucky Rod and I were to enjoy the lifestyles we do. To our friends, these are truly the fish of a lifetime, amid diving ospreys and soaring eagles. We saw pictographs on the sun-baked cliffs of the shore, left by the First Nations people who taught us how to survive here and shared the bounty of the land they cared for with us. I do not want to think of how we repaid their hospitality, with ignorance and greed. We broke out the lunches prepared by Karen and I as Rod led us to where he claimed to have a Lake Trout waiting for me and safe swimming for tired, hot anglers. We arrived at one of his numerous “honey holes” well-fed and eager to just relax and play away the rest of the day, except for Rod and I. I asked Rod to rig me out a “Buzz Bomb” to jig for the lakers far below. Developed by anglers on the coast for salmon, it is one of my favourite lures for all fish. I dropped the perfectly tied lure over the side of the boat and felt it descend, stopping it every 20 feet to check for fish ingesting it as it fell. Finally bumping bottom, I jigged about a foot above until I felt a strange, sideways motion and reared back on the rod. The fish screamed line from the reel as it ran and I let it run. Soon it tired, and as I worked it to the boat I realized the swimmers would be in the way of Rod’s landing net. Dawn hugged
the side of the platform, not knowing where to go or what to do. We reassured her and Rod netted the fish from the side of the boat easily and dispatched it quickly. Eight pounds if an ounce, the fish was expertly filleted by our captain and laid on the ice in my cooler. The rest of its body was returned to the deep to be recycled by its competitors and kin, in the way of all living things. The fish made four large meals, the first baked on low with sprigs of my fresh dill and slices of onion. My neighbours Merrill and Dar contributed fresh green beans, and a large zucchini which I made into a cake to serve with homemade blueberry ice cream. The second meal became skin-seared fillets on lemon-garlic sauce with vegetable rice. The zucchini cake went back to its carrot roots, with maple-walnut ice cream. Fish cakes on Caesar salad made the third, with carrot cake and black cherry ice cream for dessert. Fish sandwiches on whole wheat biscuits and cream of carrot soup completed a camping trip a week later. What a great place we live in! The culinary possibilities are endless here with our fresh fruit, produce and wild game. I thanked the “Great Speckled Trout” more than once that memorable day, both for another beautiful one and for giving us all we need to live and prosper. As Rod and I said our farewells, emotion swept over me like a wave. Seeing my friends so happy, and my fishing guide doing so well for his family in a tough business brought more than a few tears to my eyes. I blamed them on the wind, of which there was none. I know “Cap” understood.

I was two, and my mother remarried when I was 12. I live with my mother and stepfather and see my dad on the
weekends. The first problem is, since Mom married my stepfather, she seems unattached to me and more attached to him. She blames me for most things and nearly always takes my stepdad’s side when we have a disagreement. For example, on one of my report cards, I had two 97s and two 94s. Those are pretty solid grades, but Mom yelled at me for not doing better. She also

realized I could have gone to see him after all. I went yesterday, and his daughter said she was sorry more people did not stop by. Annie, Bill has many friends who thought as I did. What a mistake. What can I do in such a situation? — Boston Dear Boston: Bill’s friends should make every effort to visit. When one is unsure of protocol, a simple phone call can clarify matters. The hospice worker or a relative will let you know whether visitation is welcome or not. Right now, we hope you will phone as many of Bill’s friends as you can and let them know that a visit would be greatly appreciated. Dear Annie: You’ve printed so many letters about relationships between parents and children after divorce. I married a man with six children. We cannot afford to take the whole family out for every child’s birthday celebration. Instead, I suggested Dad take the birthday child out, just the two of them, to hang out, go to a restaurant for dinner, see a movie, whatever. My husband loves that I care about his kids, and the kids love that they get “Dad time.” Everybody wins. — Wants Everyone Happy Please e-mail your questions to email@example.com, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 5777 W.

The other problem is my bio dad. He’s been unemployed for a while and fell behind on child support, but I know he’s doing the best he can. I don’t like that my mother and stepfather complain about him in front of me. I love my dad. I also love my mother and stepfather, but I don’t know how to talk to them anymore because I know they will judge me. Do you have any advice? — Losing My Family Dear Losing: Some of your issues are teen related and will get better as you get older. However, your mother should not be denigrating your father in front of you, nor should you be stuck in the middle of the fights between any of your parents. Your mother sounds as if she has her hands full, and it’s good that you contribute to the household without expecting much. Continue to have calm talks with her, even if it only helps for a little while. Also, please speak to your school counselor. It can be beneficial to have a sympathetic ear on an ongoing basis. Dear Annie: My friend “Bill” is terminally ill and has hospice care. I didn’t visit him because I assumed his time was reserved for his family. Too late, I

Clark shuffles cabinet for fall OM FLETCHER Black Press
Premier Christy Clark has shuffled her cabinet lineup before the legislature reopens next week, replacing Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy with Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux as social development minister. Bloy has struggled to defend the social development ministry’s restructuring since being appointed to cabinet this spring, following the closure and restructuring of group homes for developmentally disabled people. Most recently, Community Living B.C., the agency responsible for adult disability programs, delayed for a year a decision to end funding that employs 29 people at the recycling depot in Maple Ridge. Clark said Bloy will continue as minister of state responsible for multiculturalism, remaining in cabinet. Replacing Cadieux as labour minister is Vancouver-Fairview MLA Margaret MacDiarmid, who was dropped from cabinet when Clark took over as premier in March. Clark said Monday that MacDiarmid’s experience as a physician and president of the B.C. Medical Association, as well as a stint as education minister, make her well suited to take over the labour ministry as negotiations with doctors and teachers continue. NDP leader Adrian Dix said Clark’s decision to appoint Bloy to cabinet had more to do with his support for her leadership bid than his ability to defend the government’s policies. “It’s obviously an admission that she made a very serious mistake, and continued on with that for some time,” Dix said. “The people who have paid the price are people with developmental disabilities and other people served by the ministry.” Clark did not name a new attorney-general after Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner resigned from cabinet in August. Solicitor General Shirley Bond continues to serve in both roles, but Clark said a new attorney general will be appointed later. Other changes to the cabinet include: s 0ARKSVILLE 1UALICUM -,! 2ON #ANTELON IS appointed parliamentary secretary for seniors, reporting to the health ministry. s 3URREY 7HITE 2OCK -,!

News B.C. offers no-charge nicotine replacement Morning Star Staff
B.C. is rolling up support to help smokers butt out. As part of a commitment to healthy families in British Columbia, Premier Christy Clark announced that starting today nicotine replacement therapies will be available at no cost and smoking cessation prescription drugs will be covered under PharmaCare. “Each year, more than 6,000 British Columbian needlessly die from tobacco use,” said Clark. “By providing convenient and direct support, we are helping British Columbians live
smoke-free and improve their health as well as the health of their families. By reducing the number of people who smoke, not only will we prevent or delay the onset of diseases like heart attacks and cancer but also avoid the millions of dollars cost on our health care system.” By calling HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 and registering for the smoking cessation program, B.C. smokers who are covered by MSP and who wish to quit will be able to receive free nicotine gum or patches either by mail or at their local community pharmacy once they receive a reference num-
Virginia’s World was Shrinking
ber from HealthLink BC. As part of this program, varenicline (Champix) and bupropion (Zyban) will also be covered by B.C. PharmaCare beginning Sept. 30 and will be available with a prescription. People will need to see their doctor for a prescription and be registered in a PharmaCare plan to receive coverage for these products. The level of coverage will depend on a person’s PharmaCare plan. Eligible B.C. residents can receive a single continuous course of treatment lasting up to 12 consecutive weeks with either a prescription smoking cessation drug or an NRT product once every calendar year. The estimated cost of the program is an estimated $15 million to $25 million depending on the number of individuals who use the program. Marnie Mitchell, CEO of BC Pharmacy Association, welcomed the opportunity for phar-
macists to work with the Ministry of Health on this program. “For many years, community pharmacists have been helping patients through smoking cessation clinics. This program will further support this work,” she said. Several organizations also applaud the announcement. “One of the barriers that people can face when quitting smoking is the affordability of various therapies. It is very encouraging that those who are ready to quit can now hurdle this barrier by having coverage for some proven cessation aids, which will greatly increase their chances of being successful,” said Diego Marchese, CEO, BC and Yukon, of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Smokers are encouraged to visit www. health.gov.bc.ca/pharmacare/stop-smoking/ and www.quitnow.ca
to plan their quit first. The B.C. smoking cessation program will be available to smokers anytime after Friday, so smokers can choose to register whenever they are really ready to quit. QuitNow Services offers British Columbian smokers help to quit smoking 24 hours a day - www.quitnow. ca. Services include an online quitcommunity with professional and peer support, email or text message services and a telephone quitline - now available by calling 8-1-1 - with information available in 130 languages. Providing free support for smokers to quit tobacco supports the province’s Healthy Families BC strategy, which aims to better support the health of families and communities by helping to make the healthier choice the easier choice.

Bridge by Phillip Alder The lead tells about the length Charles de Montesquieu, a French lawyer and political philosopher who died in 1755, said, “What the orators lack in depth, they give you in length.” What a weak hand lacks in points, it compensates by providing length in partner’s suit. In this deal, what would you lead from the West hand against four spades? Pick whatever you like, but don’t forget that your partner opened one heart! When I ran this deal on the Norwegian cruise in July, several Souths contented themselves with a one-spade overcall -- and at two tables, that ended the auction. Yes, West might have raised to two hearts, and North
might have advanced with one no-trump, but one can understand why they did not. South should immediately bid the contract he wishes to reach -- four spades. Yes, he might miss a slam if partner has a magic hand, but partner “never” does. And bidding four spades could make responder’s life a nightmare. When you have not supported your partner’s suit, giving length information is more important than strength information. Here, lead the heart three. (If you lead a high card, it shows that you have either a singleton or a doubleton.) East wins with his nine and cashes the ace, learning that you have the last unseen heart. Now East shifts to the
diamond two, and your side takes two tricks in that suit for down one. Note that if you lead the heart eight, top of nothing, partner will assume that you began with a doubleton and will think that he can cash three heart tricks. But South will ruff the third, draw trumps, and run the clubs for an overtrick.

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Donald James Campbell on September 24, 2011 at Vernon Jubilee Hospital in Vernon, BC. Survived by his wife Blanche; predeceased by his ﬁrst wife Barbara and son Mark. Donald was the beloved father of Deborah Kulyk (Cy), stepfather of Philip Levesque (Barbara) and Ron Levesque (Penny) and grandfather of Brian, Meadow, David, Lise, Lenise and Lara. Donald was born in rural Quebec on November 8, 1922 and lived and worked in Toronto until 1996 when he and Blanche moved to Vernon. He was a gentle, honest man who worked hard all his life and had the legendary ability to ﬁx anything. He used to say all he needed was a penknife, a bit of baling wire and some duct tape. Donald had a remarkable gift to connect with animals and shared his life with a few very special pets. He liked oldtime music and as a young man taught himself to play the violin and harmonica. He was always a popular dance partner at Schubert Centre dances. Donald was deeply loved and he will be truly missed by his family and many friends. A memorial gathering has been held. Donations in memory of Donald can be made to the Vernon District Animal Care Society, PO Box 1564, Vernon, BC, V1T 8C2.
