Park land acquired

TAKING SHAPE

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

There’s a new chunk of park land in Greater Vernon. The Regional District of North Okanagan has spent $875,000 for 0.85 acres on Kalavista Drive, next to the lagoon and the boat launch. “You’ll never get it again,” said director Patrick Nicol of the opportunity that arose to purchase the property. “It will be there for the public for the rest of time.” The site is commonly referred to as the log house property because of the structure that sits there. “It’s beneficial to have greenspace in that area,” said director Jim Garlick of its proximity to the boat launch, tennis courts and Kal Beach. The park could also be used to enhance the environment of the lagoon. “It gives us the ability to deal with problems that arise,” said Garlick. Director Gyula Kiss fully supports the land acquisition, saying it could be used by people wanting to kayak or canoe. “If not purchased, it could be used for something else and it would not fit into the character of the area,” he said of possible development. At this point, there are no immediate plans for public use. “I have heard suggestions of a picnic area but there will be nothing intense there,” said Nicol. A consultation process will be part of long-term planning. “Staff will meet with residents and look at the options,” said Nicol. Kiss has already ruled out one possible activity. “I don’t want it to be used to expand the boat launch,” he said. The future of the cabin is unknown and the integrity of the structure will be investigated by the regional district. “There are existing groups using the cabin and we will want to touch base with them,” said Keith Pinkoski, parks planner, of the consultation process with the community.

Halvorson would not respond to the statements made by Lippert. “He’s entitled to his response and I don’t have a problem with that,” said Halvorson.

They’re love and peace and positive atmosphere.� However, RDNO staff insist action must be taken to ensure the safety of people who visit the property and to reduce any potential liability to the regional district if someone is injured. “It’s not about a criminal issue. It’s not a noise issue. It’s not about bad press. It’s not about rumours of behaviour. We’re acting on one thing – the building is being used for assembly which is a serious public safety issue,� said Hall. While Walter says ticketed events will stop, he will continue with potlucks. “Our events are private events on private land,� he said. As a result, the board decided to proceed with the notice on title, which makes future property owners aware of the situation. “It’s the duty of the board to protect the regional district. We have the issue of the structure and the issue of liability,� said director Mike Macnabb.

If somebody phones your home offering to fix your computer, and you haven’t noticed any problems with your computer, hang up on the caller. The local detachment has been inundated with calls over the past few weeks after the latest scam making the rounds. “Somebody phones saying ‘We’re with Apple and we’ve been noticing you’re having computer problems and virus- Gord Molendyk es, and I can show you how to fix it,’� said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “It usually ends up costing a lot of money, they ask for your credit card number and on they go.� The RCMP nationwide and their partners at the Canadian Anti Fraud Center (CAFC) are warning that if someone calls you claiming to be able to protect your computer from viruses, your best bet is to just hang up the phone. Don’t give the caller your computer access codes and don’t provide your credit card information. The virus scam has grown to epidemic proportions in Canada, now accounting for between 70 and 80 per cent of frauds reported daily to the CAFC. Police warn if a scammer is able to log on to your computer, then he has access to all the personal information you have stored there, including your banking information. “If it’s an unsolicited call, you should have that sixth sense about you,� said Molendyk. “If you didn’t notice any computer problems and you receive an unsolicited call about it, nine times out of 10 those unsolicited calls will take you down the road.�

Duteau plant at capacity

Bring It On! WINTER is a SNAP with… wit

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Greater Vernon is facing a water crunch. Politicians were warned Thursday that the Duteau Creek treatment plant is virtually at capacity and steps are needed to alleviate pressure. “We were extremely challenged this summer with capacity issues,” said Zee Marcolin, utilities engineer, told the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee. The plant was brought online in late 2010, but it’s struggling to keep up largely because a majority of the water being treated is going on to farm land. Closure of the Antwerp Springs well source because of contamination has also led to more users on Duteau. Total capacity for the facility is 160 megalitres a day and it was running at 157 megalitres during the summer. “We’re at our limit,” said Marcolin, who urged GVAC directors to proceed with separating agricultural customers from domestic users. Through separation, untreated water for agricultural activities would not go through the plant. If the plant goes beyond capacity, staff may have to run raw water around the treatment process and allow it to enter the distribution system. The raw water would be chlorinated but a water quality advisory alerting residents of potential bacteria may be necessary. Director Mike Macnabb isn’t surprised by the

“The price of water will have to go up.”

current situation. “The original master water plan had agricultural separation as a key point of all of this (treatment plant) and a political decision was made at the time not to proceed,” he said. “Now we’re going to pay the price.” There is no firm price for separating agricultural users from the domestic water system but it could range from $50 to $70 million. “This will impact us at the budget stage,” said Trafford Hall, Regional District of North Okanagan administrator, adding that will impact user fees. “The price of water will have to go up.” Separation for the West Swan Lake area is currently underway and that could cost $8 million. There is also the possibility of moving ahead with separation projects at Springfield and Binns roads in Coldstream. They would account for 22 megalitres a day. “We have to get treated water off our fields,” said Hall.

Attempted robbery leads to jail ROGER KNOX

with the attempted robbery counts, for possession of stolen property.

Morning Star Staff

Two counts of attempted robbery and one count of possession of stolen property have resulted in jail time for a Vernon man. Adam William Nichols, 28, was sentenced to a total of 385 days in jail in Vernon Provincial Court by Judge Edmond De Walle. Nichols was sentenced to 255 days in jail and given a 10-year firearms prohibition in connection with an incident in downtown Vernon in May. He was a suspect in an incident at the downtown Scotiabank’s automated teller machine on May 22 at 1:15 a.m. when two women told police that a man demanded cash from them at the ATM, and threatened them with what he claimed was an infected hypodermic needle if they didn’t comply. Police asked the public’s assistance in locating the suspect, and were rewarded on June 12 when a tip to Nichols’ whereabouts resulted in police finding him at a trailer in Westwold. Police believed Nichols arrived at the trailer with a truck and trailer reported stolen out of Salmon Arm. Nichols was sentenced by De Walle to an additional 130 days in jail, to be served consecutively

A local politician insists farms are being abandoned because of provincial meat regulations. Rural Lumby director Rick Fairbairn discussed rules that prohibit farm gate meat processing with Health Minister Michael de Jong during last week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver. “I told him that the status of agriculture in the North Okanagan is at a crisis level,” said Fairbairn. “People are losing their farms and leaving the area. We have a social and economic concern about this.” It has previously been suggested that North Okanagan farmers could access Class E licenses,

“People are losing their farms.” — Rick Fairbairn which allows for the on-farm slaughter of a small number of animals annually for direct sales to local consumers. “There have been no E licenses issued and I questioned why this had happened,” said Fairbairn of his meeting with de Jong and senior ministry staff. Fairbairn also demanded that the ministry provide updates to farmers on the status of the meat processing regulations. “The minister has said he will discuss the issue with our MLA to let the community know where the matter stands,” said Fairbairn. The Regional District of North Okanagan has opposed the meat regulations since they were first implemented in 2007. Fairbairn says the lack of action on the part of the government may be a result of Victoria being focused on the HST and ministers changing duties. “There’s been a lack of leadership towards ministry staff.” In late 2010, RDNO distributed a video developed by farmers Shelley and Buffy Baumbrough. The video pushed for class E licenses in the North Okanagan.

Gary Krieger (left), of Vernon Tireland, and Harald Kober, of Roko Service, present Mayor Wayne Lippert with a petition opposing the reduction of lanes on 43rd Avenue Wednesday.

Petition sends council message ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Vocal opposition to the city’s proposed road diet plan for 43rd Avenue has been recorded. Now, the city has received official written opposition to the plan that calls for reducing 43rd Avenue from four lanes to three between 27th and 32nd Streets, and adding bike lanes. Harald Kober and Gary Krieger, two men who run businesses on 43rd Avenue, presented Vernon Mayor Wayne Lippert with a petition containing more than 1,000 names opposed to the plan. “This petition contains the signatures of 1,063 people,” said Kober, who operates Roko Service, to Lippert outside city hall Wednesday afternoon. Kober organized a lunch-hour protest to the plan last week that drew more than 50 people. The protest, said Krieger, helped attract more signatures. He said more than 160 names were signed on the petition at his shop after word of the protest got out. “I think that’s a positive sign showing the city is behind not three-

laning our road,” said Krieger of 43rd Avenue. “It’s very busy. I think it shows the commercial corridor is definitely being looked at and attended to.” Krieger said his biggest concern is creating bike lanes in front of his store. He said he’s not opposed to bike lanes, just not there. “If the city is going to be expropriating land (for bike paths), it’s going to crush a lot of businesses up and down the street,” said Krieger. Lippert took the presentation and will add it to the information already received as the matter comes before Vernon council at its next regular meeting Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. Lippert said no final decision on the plan has been made. “There was a decision made after a proposal for a possible grant from federal gas tax money came through to apply and carry on through our processes,” said Lippert. “If the grant came through, we’d look at moving ahead with the project but not before getting public input. This council has always been about trying to get input on all of our projects.”

S

o my oldest brother calls me on the phone the other day and says he has a proposition for me. I remember my former smelter worker brother’s foray into the multi-level marketing fads of the 90s – skin care products I think it was – so forgive me, oldest brother, if I get a little leery when I hear the word “proposition.” The foray into MLM didn’t last, and my brother has since done quite well for himself. Well enough that I trust him to look after my millions – I almost kept a straight face typing Roger Knox that – as my investment guy. Of course, he had to move away and start a new career as a mill worker after some of his investments went wonky when the recession crapped in 2008, but that’s beside the point. My point is, I listened to my brother’s latest proposition over the phone. After he explained it to me, I said “You don’t have to do that. I’m your brother. I’ll do that for nothing.” “Yeh, but I can’t fire you as my brother,” he said. “I can fire you at this if you don’t do the job.” So, essentially, what I take from this is that my brother wants to hire me in order to fire me. Family. God bless them. As this is Thanksgiving weekend, I am very thankful for my family, and I know I don’t say that often enough to them. My two brothers and my sister who is currently halfway around the world on the journey she’s dreamed of for years, I’d be lost without them. We’ve all kinda leaned on each other since our mom’s passing 18 months ago and while we won’t all be together this weekend, I’m certain we’ll all think of each other at some point during out respective Thanksgiving meals. I will be spending part of Thanksgiving with my son, and I thank the Maker each and every day for giving me the greatest gift ever on Oct. 30, 1999. I am thankful my son is healthy, happy, intel-

ligent, artistic, hysterically funny, a Habs fan, a B.C. Lions fan and, starting tonight, I’ll be thankful if he makes a couple of fine saves as he plays his first-ever hockey game, in goal no less. (PS.. I would be more thankful if I hadn’t failed as a father and convinced him to play out instead of in net.) With all due respect to Vernon Secondary School Class of 1981 alum Al Cooper, 1&2 Electric head honcho Al Schuck and United Steelworker executive member Pat McGregor, I will really be thankful if Sam’s Detroit Tigers knocked out the Evil Empire, the New York Yankees, in game five of their Major League Baseball American League division series playoff last night. I count the two Als and Pat among my friends, and I am thankful for all of my friends. In my opinion, I have the greatest friends a guy could have. I’m thankful to have a career that I love. There are some days when I sit staring at my computer screen, wondering if there isn’t something else out there for me. And I don’t believe, as I get set to turn 48 later this month, that you are too old to learn new tricks. There are times when the phone rings at my desk and I can tell by the ring that it isn’t going to be a good call. But then, I have a talk with some of my favourite co-workers and company colleagues, or one of my contacts, or I get to tell someone’s story in the paper, and I realize there really isn’t anything else I want to be doing. I’m thankful for music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Thankful for Monty Python and all British comedy. Thankful for Clint Eastwood movies. Thankful for Thursday night safety meetings and bowling. Thankful for spring softball. Thankful for having parents who taught me to ride a bicycle and how to ride it properly on the roads before there were bike lanes. Thankful to live in the North Okanagan. I’m thankful to be happy and somewhat healthy, and, truly, though sometimes I can tell by the ring that it isn’t going to be a good call, I’m thankful that my brother picks up the phone every now and then to say hi.

It never fails to amaze us why some people who seem smart enough to do legitimate work instead choose to bilk others out of money. Stories are rampant across the province of fraudsters claiming to be from Microsoft who ultimately tried to sell a “file-cleaning” service. In one case, unlike many others victimized by computerrelated scams, a woman considered herself to be tech-savvy, yet she was taken by enough of the caller’s pitch to allow him to remove a number of valuable files from her hard drive. It’s unfortunate that computerrelated fraud continues to be agesensitive – seniors are most likely to be bilked – but people of any age can and will be targeted. We live in an era where technology and online business are often in the grey area of entrepreneurship because they’ve developed new methods for selling goods and services. Most are trying to find legitimate opportunities to supply what’s in demand. Some, however, push the envelope and even go over the line – promising something for a price, but they have no intent on delivering. Fraudsters, of course, are not new to the Internet age. We just have to look at the latest efforts the Bank of Canada has undertaken to create bills that will foil counterfeiters (for now) to be reminded that humanity has a long history of trying to deceive one another. If you are simply wary by nature, you probably already are cautious about opening yourself up to anything that could be a fraud. Perhaps there’s a new demand for that quality, both to avoid being burned ourselves and to educate those in our lives about the pitfalls of living in an interconnected world. ---Black Press

Bus riders deserve better

I

n my opinion the politicians responsible for providing regional transit services in our area have dropped the ball. The No. 90 North Okanagan Connector between Vernon and UBC is regularly over capacity on at least two of its runs – the 7 a.m. out of Vernon and the 4 p.m. from the UBC campus back to Vernon. Often the 8 a.m. bus is also full to overflowing. These crowded conditions also existed last year during the academic year. On Sept. 15, after operating the service for seven days with what was apparently an unsafe number of passengers, the authorities decided it was time to take action. At the Okanagan College stop two transit workers got off the bus and informed a half-dozen people it was unsafe to board due to overcrowding. I assume the issue is overall weight since OPPOSITION MISGUIDED Thank you to City of Vernon staff for improving our streets for bicycle traffic over the past few years. I was disappointed to hear that some owners of automobilebased businesses along 43rd Avenue between 27th and 32nd Streets are so opposed to proposed improvements that include a two-way left turn lane and bicycle lanes. I watched coverage of this story on a local television station. I heard one owner say that he's only ever seen about a half dozen cyclists ride by his business. Well, duh, the reason is that this stretch of 43rd Avenue is horrid for riding a bike. I rode part of it just the other day but went as fast I could and got off it as soon as possible because there is no room for cyclists. Don't these business owners who are opposed to the changes realize that many (if not most) cyclists also own automobiles? Just the day before writing this letter, I had to take my vehicle in for service at a local business so I loaded up my bike, dropped off the vehicle, and rode my bike home. Reducing the road to one lane in each direction may actually increase exposure for the local businesses. For one thing, all traffic will now be in the 'curb' lane adjacent to the businesses, whereas presently some

vehicles travel in the centre lanes. Secondly, business storefronts will be more visible to passing cyclists since they will not be rushed and constantly watching behind for traffic. I love the wide bike lanes on 43rd Avenue east of 27th Street, and it makes perfect sense to connect with the bike lanes west of 32nd Street to make a cross-town bike route that stretches from Pleasant Valley Road to Alexis Park Drive. Business owners should open their eyes to the benefits of the proposed changes to themselves and the general population (which includes potential customers) instead of having the knee-jerk reaction of opposing change and standing in the way of making Vernon a more livable community. Gerry Naito TRAFFIC LANES Please add my name to those opposed to the planned reduction of vehicle lanes along 43rd Ave, as recently described in The Morning Star. I fully support Vernon’s recent efforts to improve our transportation network for pedestrians and cyclists, and hope our mayor, councillors and staff will continue to add to our alternatives to vehicular transport. 25th Ave, between Hwy 6 and 27th Ave, is a good example

A man in Winfield wasn’t so fortunate but at least Lake Country has a bus that serves the area. On Sept. 16 a young boy was left at a bus stop by the side of the highway just past Oyama because the 7 a.m. bus was “at capacity.” He weighs all of 30 kilograms and

of a successful improvement for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. A much less successful project is 29th St, which enhanced access and safety for pedestrians and cyclists at the expense of motorists and business owners. The difference between the two was determined by the plentiful availability of land in the former instance, and lack of land in the latter. I don’t believe we should be hampering the flow of traffic, and access to existing businesses, in order to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists. The owners of these small businesses, which pay property taxes at a rate several times that of residential taxpayers, deserve our support – not a project which will make their lives more difficult. Why not consider improved sidewalks and a cycling path along 41st Ave, or another route which wouldn’t interfere with motoring traffic? I appreciate that we have a shortage of land in appropriate places for development of pedestrian and cycling routes, but reducing four traffic lanes to two along a busy well-established artery seems a recipe for resentment and dangerous mixing of competing modes of traffic.

I doubt that letting him board the bus would have put any of us in peril. Unless the people in charge have been asleep for a year they should have seen this problem coming. With the overcrowding on bus runs last academic year, the increase in enrolment at both UBC and Okanagan College and what appears to be a general uptake in ridership it should have been a top priority to make appropriate scheduling changes and commit additional resources to this route before the start of this academic year. Authorities had an entire year to come up with a solution. Are they suggesting the best they can do is to leave passengers stranded at the bus stop? And while I’m at it we could use more bike racks around the district. Linda Conrad

The move toward “traffic calming” may calm traffic, but it sure doesn’t calm drivers or residents of the affected neighbourhoods. Residents and users of Allenby Way, where motorists will soon be jammed into narrow lanes, must be wondering whose interests are being served. Where will residents and their visitors park? Perhaps on a bike path that won’t likely get used much on such a steep grade! Colin Heggie ROAD DIET? Not having gone to university for several years and learning all about traffic movement or lack of it, here is an idea for a bike lane which this council seems to be so passionate about. How about we create a bike lane that travels the full length of the city from Swan Lake to Polson Park and beyond. Now for the uninformed answer. Does the term railroad right of way ring any bells? Does it not make sense to negotiate an agreement with the owners of the railroad tracks to allow a paved bike path on one or both sides of the tracks? I think it would be a lot cheaper than digging up streets three or four blocks at a time.

Not to mention disturbing the businesses and their livelihood. Just food for thought from an ordinary taxpayer who has to pay for this stuff. Jim Mellors

Chris Collard and Mike Lane have been named the co-chairpersons of Vernon’s bid to host the 2014 Canadian championship tournament at the Wesbild Centre. Collard, 47, is a certified financial advisor who has lived in Vernon since 1994.

Village tackles gas emissions The process to address global warming continues in Lumby. Council has given three readings to a proposed bylaw that would add a greenhouse gas emission reduction strategy to the village’s official community plan. “We’ve made a lot of progress towards sustainability such as water meters,” said Coun. Janet Green. The OCP amendment would incorporate targets and strategies aimed at enhancing community energy and resource efficiency including the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The village would possibly promote the effective and efficient use of energy resources by raising awareness of programs, incentives and information sources available to the public. There could also be a focus on water conservation and alternate transportation like pedestrian and bicycle routes. Parts of the OCP amendment deal with burning and the replacement of all non-certified wood burn-

Henry Proce believes the e-mails are originating overseas, judging from the wording, grammar and punctuation in the correspondence. “The criminal behind the e-mail probably sent hundreds at once to undisclosed recipients, hoping that a few would be scared into responding,” said Proce. “This is somewhat of a new twist in that the sender is attempting to scare the victims into paying sums of money as opposed to using trickery of some sort.” Proce said in this particular case, the victim was genuinely frightened and police did their best to reassure the resident the incident was all bogus. If you are the recipient of similar attempts,

please contact the Lumby RCMP detachment at 250-547-2151.

SHEILA REYNOLDS Black Press

Steve Fonyo, the former Vernon resident known for his historic 1985 run across Canada for cancer research, was back in court Tuesday facing a domestic assault charge. Fonyo, who now lives in Surrey, is also charged with breaching a conditional sentence order in relation to the Sept. 5 incident. In January, Fonyo was handed an 18-month conditional sentence after pleading guilty to several charges, including using an unauthorized credit card and uttering threats against his wife. At the time, Lisa Greenwood, whom he married in August 2010, said the two had gotten into an argument over money, but she didn’t want him charged. However, by law, police are required to lay charges in domestic assault cases even if the alleged victim withdraws the complaint. Fonyo’s well-publicized struggles with alcohol and drugs over the years also resulted in the stripping of his Order of Canada medal last year.

Almanac Gets Support Lumby will celebrate the community’s history but not at all costs. Council will spend $105 on an advertisement in the Monashee 150 Year Almanac. The original request was $900 for a rear page or $565 for an inside full page. “It’s approved at a smaller ad and we’ve asked the administrator to find out more information,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. “The request for support didn’t have information about where it’s going to be circulated.” The almanac is being published by resident Don Elzer to recognize 150 years of gold exploration in the Monashees, the 100th anniversary of the B.C. Forest Service and the 50th anniversary of Monashee Provincial Park. “Please join us so we can compile and produce this commemorative publication that’s a keeper,” said Elzer in a letter to council.

News KEEPING CLEAN

Enderby rolls out park sculpture RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

NATALIA VIGNOLA/ MORNING STAR

Zac Armer, two, and his dad Jamie carefully wash their hands after meeting the farm animals at Davison Orchards.

Thank You Vernon! On Sunday, October 2, the Vernon Run for the Cure site contributed $65,965 to a nationwide total of over $30 million to fund relevant and innovative breast cancer research. Together, we walked, ran, and gave generously towards our vision of creating a future without breast cancer.

More public art is taking shape in downtown Enderby. City council has given the green light to the Enderby Arts Council installing a new sculpture in Belvidere Park next to the Shuswap River. “It will be really nice,” said Coun. Beryl Ludwig. The sculpture will portray people involved in a log rolling contest as a way of payBeryl Ludwig ing tribute to the logging industry and the river’s role in Enderby’s development. This will be the second piece of public art initiated by the arts council. “People really like the salmon sculpture at city hall and they’ll like this one too,” said Ludwig. Recreation Fees Approved A new fee structure is in place for Enderby and area parks and recreation. Council has adopted the parks, recreation and culture fees bylaw. The fee schedule includes a $2 drop-in parent and children skate. Adult ice rental will be $148 an hour until July 31, 2012 and then it will increase to $151 an hour until July 31, 2013. Drop-in shinny hockey ice rental will remain at $20 an hour while it will be $30 an hour until July 31, 2012 for dry-floor roller derby and then $30.50 until July 31, 2013. Public swim for adults will be $3.75 next year (compared to $3.50 in 2011) while it will be $3.25 (the same as 2011) for youth and seniors. The rate for families will be $8.75 (up 25 cents). Overnight camping at Grindrod Park for baseball tournaments will climb from $17 this year to $17.50 in 2012.

The Àushing process removes accumulated sand and silt from water mains and is a process used to improve water quality for public health. A reduction in water pressure, additional sediment or discoloration of the water may be noticeable. During this time, you may choose to boil or not drink the water. Checking your water before doing laundry is strongly advised. The process will last approximately 2 hours at each site. Flushing signs will be posted in your immediate area. Please be considerate of crews working in your area and drive carefully in work areas.

Ottawa uncorks wine law change Morning Star Staff

Efforts to reform Canada’s wine laws are underway. A private member’s bill has been introduced in Parliament that would allow people to legally transport wine across provincial borders without violating an 83-year-old law that declared such practises illegal. “Presently, it is illegal to ship B.C. wine to other provinces unless the wine is exported by their liquor boards,” said Colin Mayes, Okanagan-Shuswap MP, who seconded the bill introduced by Lake Country MP Ron Cannan. “It is integral to Okanagan-Shuswap winemakers, such as Larch Hills Winery, that this bill support economic development and diversification to sustain the future of local wineries.” The proposed bill would permit citizens to directly import, send or transport wine for personal consumption in quantities as permitted by the province.

A Vernon school has learned a lesson on road safety. Parents, teachers, students and neighbours gathered recently at Harwood Elementary School to celebrate improvements to roads and sidewalks around the area. “Parents, Holly Rakos and Melony Young thanked the city for keeping their kids safe travelling to and from Harwood and other schools,” said Bill Darnell, with the Climate Action Group. “Principal Bryan Smith told the assembled group that many more students were walking and riding their bikes to school and that students and neighbours were keeping the street beautiful.” Wendy Majewski, the city’s traffic demand management co-ordinator, spoke about the co-operative work by parents, students and staff to design the new streetscape. Darnell acknowledges that the traffic changes near Harwood school were not easy for everyone in a car culture. “We were going to have to work together to build a climate friendly transportation system,” he said.

Enderby checks out community forest

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Enderby officials are trying to stimulate the local economy. Council members recently met with Ministry of Forests officials to discuss the possibility of establishing a community forest. “We won’t know for three to six months if we will get an invitation to apply,” said Mayor Dee Wejr. The goal of a community forest is to ensure a supply of wood fiber to local businesses as a way of creating employment. “We have met with the Splats’in First Nation and we plan to partner with them,” said Wejr.

Danny delivers in backup plan GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

Danny Todosychuk’s job description requires he be ready to go at a moment’s notice. That’s the nature of a backup goaltender. With Vernon Vipers’ starter Kirby Halcrow suffering flulike symptoms, Todosychuk learned just before warmup that he would start Wednesday night’s B.C. Hockey League tilt against the Westside Warriors. The 16-year-old Vernon native responded with a 25-save, first star performance and his first-ever BCHL shutout as the Vipers iced the Warriors 2-0 before 1,334 fans at Wesbild Centre. “I can’t take all the credit; the boys stepped up and the d-men played really well,” said Todosychuk. “There were a few turnovers here and there, but that’s the way it goes. There are no perfect games out there.” Added Vernon head coach Jason Williamson: “That’s a backup; they’ve got to be ready from the get-go and when he had to be good, he was great. “Playoff-style game, and that’s the way it’s going to be with four teams making the playoffs. Down the road, we don’t want these two points to haunt us.” Todosychuk and Warriors’ netminder Steve Racine had to be sharp as both teams dutifully stuck to their systems in a tight-checking game, making the few scoring chances that did occur all the more crucial. Todosychuk recorded the save of the night when he lunged cross-crease to deny Garrett Skrbich on a 2-on-1 midway through the second period. Shortly after, he stopped Brett McKinnon on his doorstep and then got a little help from Vernon d-man Geoff Crisfield to clear the loose puck. “You just follow the puck as best you can. You don’t want to guess too much, but obviously there’s always a little bit of anticipation,” said Todosychuk, who was probably the happiest guy in the rink when Vernon’s Darren Nowick opened the scoring on a 5-on-3 earlier in the second period. “That was definitely a big load off my shoulders. That was a good look by Renzy (defenceman Ryan Renz) and he just put it down low and Nowick got a good stick on it. We had most of the pressure anyway, so it was about time we finally put one in there,” smiled Todosychuk. Viper captain Patrick McGillis relieved the presressure with an empty-netter with 24 seconds to play. The Vipers, tied with the Powell River Kings for first overall at 5-0, entertain the relaunched Chilliwack Chiefs (2-0) tonight at Wesbild. They visit the Merritt Centennials Saturday at Nicola Valley Arena. The 4-2 Warriors are tied for second in the Interior Conference with the 4-1 Penticton Vees. Both of Westside’s losses have come against Vernon. “You don’t like to see a game decided that way, but full marks to them. I thought they played better than us and we didn’t score a goal,” said Westside head coach Rylan Ferster. “I don’t want to say we let one slip away tonight because it’s Vernon, but we came in here and gave just a good enough

Vernon won 2-0 to remain undefeated in five regular-season games. effort. We didn’t have that little extra that you’re going to need to beat Vernon.” Michael King, a towering Warriors’ blueliner who logged nearly as many minutes as the goalies, was perhaps Westside’s steadiest player Wednesday night. Now in his second year, he relishes lining up against top BCHL teams. “It’s just the name behind it – Vernon Vipers. You alw always want to play against that name and get a win against them. The crowd was quiet but it’s not hard to get up for these games,” said K King, who is headed to Colorado College next season. “Sometimes we weren’t sticking to our systems. We were letting them tear us down bit by bit and I think it got to us.” In a game that was lacking emotion, Crisfield jolted the crowd with a spirited third-period scrap against the Warriors’ Shawn Hauchhausen. The two combatants began trading blows, but Crisfield snapped Hochhausen’s head back with two or three stiff shots, wobbling his opponent to earn the decision. The altercation was likely a carry over from the Vipers’ Friday-night tilt in Westside, where Crisfield got mixed up with McKinnon in the dying seconds.

Crisfield inks with Fighting Sioux Crisfield, who attended the recent Team Canada West evaluation camp for the upcoming World Junior A Challenge, committed to the NCAA Division 1 North Dakota Fighting Sioux Wednesday. The 18-year-old went on a fly-down to the Grand Forks campus last spring, but only started talking with the coaches in the last week. “They kept slight tabs on me over the summer and then sent a couple guys out Geoff Crisfield to watch me this fall and they liked what they saw,” said Crisfield. “There were a few others (schools), but nothing really serious. It’s still pretty early in the season so it’s not something I was expecting so quick. It’s nice to have it out of the way and get on with the season. It’s a bit of a shock, but it’s a good feeling.” SNAKE BITES: The Vipers will unveil their new retro jerseys tonight against the Chiefs. The new design pays homage to the Vernon Lakers...Former Viper defenceman Adam Thompson left the Yale Bulldogs for personal reasons.

Kronbauer powers Panther attack Morning Star Staff

The VSS Panthers ambushed the Westsyde Blue Wave of Kamloops 52-26 in Southern Interior High School Junior Varsity Football League action Wednesday at Grahame Park. Zac Kronbauer supplied four touchdowns for the Cats, while Jon Garvie tossed a pair of touchdown passes. Travis Froom had two scores and Andy Hladik added one. VSS scored early and often with Kronbauer scoring on a 20-yard pitch. Then, after a Hladik interception, Kronbauer turned around and punched in a TD on a three-yard dive. Brandon Richter earned the convert before suffering a knee injury to make it 16-0. Kronbauer scored early in the second quarter on a pitch led by pulling guard Ben Alder. Westsyde responded quickly, and after holding the Panthers, scored again to pull with 10 points. VSS went back to work and marched the field behind their offensive line of Alder, Tyler Wiebe, Dylan Cleland, Braydon Lodder and Tylar Onjukka, with Kronbauer plunging three yards for a TD. Wiebe recovered a fumble just before the half at the Panthers’ 40. Garvie then tossed a laser to a streaking Froom for a 60-yard touchdown. Kronbauer ran in the two-point convert. The Blue Wave took the opening third-quarter possession in for a TD and stopped the Panthers’ offence before another Wiebe fumble recovery at midfield. Offensive coach Tim Thorpe opened up the playbook and watched as Froom ran in a 50-yard reverse to finish off the third quarter. Kronbauer rattled off a pair of touchdowns early in the fourth quarter off a Garvie swing pass and a 20-yard scamper up the middle. “We were very good on offence today, executing our blocks well,” said VSS head coach Dave Tetrault. “Defensively, we have some work to do. We missed some assignments and, as defensive co-ordinator, I have to put kids in positions to be successful. “That will be our focus as we prepare to travel to Kamloops next Tuesday to play Valleyview (Vikings). I want to recognize two rookies who played well today. Zac Hyer and Brandon Melbourne made big plays on defence and special teams. I love both these kids’ attitude; they’re positive and not afraid of hard work. That’s what a coach loves.” The Fulton Maroons brushed back Valleyview 6-0 in junior varsity action Wednesday in Kamloops. Davron Polok scored on a 49-yard run for the 2-2 Maroons. Quarterback Tye Kitzman completed five of 10 passes for 70 yards while carrying the ball 10 times for 51 yards. Polok had seven touches for 80 yards, while Max Chapman earned 18 yards on 10 attempts.

Caleb McCuaig caught two passes for 24 yards, Chapman hauled in one 24-yarder and Liam Curran had a 17-yard reception. Polok paced Fulton with 10 tackles, while Trevor Feeney supplied six and Chapman five. Chapman, Layne Greene, who returned from injury reserve, and Brandon Issac each had one fumble recovery. “It was a hard-fought, entertaining football game that went back and forth in tough weather conditions,” said Fulton coach Mike Scheller. “Valleyview has a big physical squad, and our kids went at it with them. Lots of big hits,

tough blocks and it was as even as the score indicates.” Valleyview fumbled five times before the Maroons recovered one. “I thought our secondary of Ben Aspenlieder, Brandon Issac and Liam Curran played great today. They tackled well, and broke up a few passes. They were solid back there. Curran also played well on offence, and had his best game as a Maroon. Polok was his usual exceptional self at defensive end, making play after play for us. Linebackers Chapman and Feeney were also key in halting their attack. Defensive tackle Darrien Broomfield was also tough inside.”

Sports NET opens Super League with win

Smith opens Heat offence

Morning Star Staff

The UBC Heat got one goal from Vernon’s Michelle Smith in a 3-1 PacWest women’s college soccer victory over the Vancouver Island Mariners of Nanaimo Sunday at Nonis Field in Kelowna. The Heat (4-1-1) came out strong with a goal in the first minute by midfielder Smith who finished her chance after a scramble in front of the net. Fourth-year keeper Sabrina Gasparac (Langley) held the Mariners back with strong support from defender Haley Carlson (Red Deer). The Heat scored again early in the second half off a penalty kick by midfielder Taylor Sarchet (Surrey). The PK was awarded when Emily Braun (Calgary) was taken down inside the box. Rookie forward Lana Finley (West Kelowna) netted the Heat’s final goal late in the second half. “I think we had a really good second half; the first half was kind of slow but we made some changes and they paid off,” said Finley. The Heat used a goal from Sarchet in the 10th minute for a 1-0 win over the Capilano Blues of North Vancouer Saturday. Said Heat head coach Claire Paterson: “They all played together and realized when they were not playing as they should be, and brought themselves up to bring two good wins.” Next action for the Heat is Saturday (1 p.m.) as they host the University of Northern B.C. Timberwolves at Nonis Sports Field. In men’s play, the Heat lost 1-0 to the Mariners and drew 1-1 with the Blues (goal by Sean Causier). The Heat are 2-2. In preseason CIS Canada West men’s volleyball action, the Heat lost a pair of weekend matches to the Trinity Western University Spartans of Langley. Trinity stopped the Heat 3-1 (25-21, 25-22, 12-25, 31-29) in the opening series at Surrey Christian School gym, and then outlasted the Heat 3-2 (25-22, 22-25, 21-25, 25-21, 15-9) Saturday. The Heat, coached by Greg Poitras, made some adjustments which helped them Saturday. “Greg Neimantsverdriet (Vernon) has an injured shoulder so we had him play libero,” said Poitras. “For three sets he passed and dug everything. He also brought a presence and level of intensity that helped our guys on the floor big time.” The Heat, who also have Vernon’s

Defending champions North Enderby Timber carried on from where they left off in Baron Insurance Super League play Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club. Skip Robbie Kuhn executed a perfect double takeout and roll to force skip Darren Heath to draw to the four-foot, and ended up stealing a deuce in the eighth end to complete a 4-3 comeback win. Trailing 3-0 after five, the timber crew rattled off single steals in six and seven to get back in the game. Brad Wood’s Nufloors and Jim Cotter’s Woodland Equipment traded big ends in their Wednesday tilt, with Wood securing an 11-9 victory. After the two rinks traded triples in one and two, Cotter took four in three, only to watch Wood reply with a triple in four. A four-ender in six broke the game open for Nufloors. Jenn Gerow celebrated the new super league season with a 7-1 win over TJ Perepolkin. After racking up four points over the first three ends, Gerow cracked three points in the fifth to put an early end to Perepolkin’s night. Down a point early, Mark Longworth needed a deuce in three and triple in five to earn a 5-2 win over Alyssa Kyllo.

UBC OKANAGAN ATHLETICS

Michelle Smith of the UBC Okanagan Heat knocks down a ball in front of a Vancouver Island Mariners player in PacWest women’s soccer action Sunday in Kelowna. Preston Tucker – last year’s MVP – on their roster, are at the University of Regina this weekend where they will play new faces in the host Rams, Brandon Bobcats, the University of Manitoba Bisons, Mt. Royal University Cougars of Calgary and the University of Saskatchewan Huskies of Saskatoon. In preseason CIS women’s basketball, the Heat played its first batch of games and learned a lot about the level of competition they will face at a higher level. The Heat lost 62-56 to Trinity Western at the Langley Event Centre, bowed 71-36 to the University of Fraser Valley Cascades and then played a friendy scrimmage against the UBC Thunderbirds of

Vancouver in Penticton. “We need to continue to train hard and improve,” said Heat coach Heather Semeniuk. “These teams are deep, athletic, talented and big. We can’t afford mental lapses from physical fatigue, we have to have the strength and conditioning to allow muscle memory to perform.” Freshman Emily Kanester (Vernon) and sophomore Angela White (North Van) led UBC against the Spartans with 15 and 10 points respectively. Against Fraser Valley, guards Madison Kaneda (fourth year, Vernon) and Kanester were the only Heat players to score consistently. Kaneda dropped 11 points and Kanester had eight.

Jiu jitsu club collects medals Morning Star Staff

Members of Gracie Barra Vernon grappled four medals at the U.S. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Championships in Irvine, Calif. Head instructor and black belt Mario Deveault earned double-silver, finishing runner-up in the middleweight division before falling to renowned Ricardo (Franjinha) Miller in the gold-medal final in the open class. “I got to try a few things so they’re tournament tested. I was pleased after being out of competition a little bit. It’s fun to go up against big names like that,” said Deveault. Dave Rothwell, the Vernon club’s other black

belt, struck silver in his weight class and went on to earn bronze in the open division. He bowed to six-time world champion Saulo Ribeiro in the semifinals. Vernon’s Devon Chinnock, a new purple belt, and John (Danger) Davies, a white belt, both lost in their opening bouts. Both their opponents went on to claim gold in their respective classes. “It’s just the way it goes, but John knows what he can do better. It’s all learning experience,” said Deveault. Vernon club members are now preparing for the Calgary Open BJJ & No-Gi Tournament, Oct. 22 in Alberta.

Jackals earn B.C. silver Morning Star Staff

With the international sporting scene transfixed on the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, the Vernon Jackals tried to create a buzz of their own last weekend at the Saratoga Cup in Penticton. The Jackals, winners of the Okanagan Rugby Union title, settled for silver as they fell 10-7 to the Kitsilano Kats in the gold-medal game of the B.C. senior C men’s championship Sunday. It was a tough final, with the two teams evenly matched in most aspects of the game. The Kats struck first after a wellplaced kick and exceptional hustle to score the opening try. Shortly after, Kitsilano earned a second score (both were unconverted) to take a 10-0 lead at halftime. After a motivating pep talk by player-coach Garth Cook, a former Team Canada member, the Jackals came out fired up for the second half. “Their forward pack was tough and hard, and our boys answered the call to step up the physicality of the

game. Kiwi Dan, and Garth Cook had their most physical games of the season,” said the Jackals’ Bryan Bateman. Pierce Wylie picked off a pass which put Vernon in scoring position. After a Kitsilano penalty, Geoff Cranton ran in a 10-yarder to score Vernon’s lone try, converted by Rob Miles. The Jackals made a late push for the go-ahead try, but ran out of time. Kiwi Dan and Cook shared Jackals’ Man of the Match honours. Vernon earned a berth in the finals with a 35-7 win over Trail Colonials Saturday. “They played a tough game, really hard and physical, but we were able to squeak out a win. The game was allot closer then what the score told,” said Bateman. “The team is excited about the potential for next season and agree that the (corps) is there to return to the finals next year,” said Bateman. The ORU season begins again in March. The Jackals are always looking for new members to come out and play the great game of rugby.

IGA pulls 45+ double Morning Star Staff

The Okanagan Men’s 45+ Soccer League champion IGA completed the double by taking the playoff final in a 2-1 (3-2) shootout victory over North Country Appraisals Kickers Saturday at Kings Park in Penticton. IGA, who went unbeaten in the regular season, held a 1-0 lead at the half after converting a scramble after a corner kick in the 30th minute. The ball bounced around in the North Country box before Tony Gonzalez kicked it in past keeper Martin Vincze and a couple of defenders. Third-place North Country equalized with about five minutes to play when Greg Bevandick scored on a miraculous header off a nice cross from Randy Bohem. Shortly after, Fritz Berenyi slipped on the wet field and into IGA keeper Scott Seiben. Berneyi left the game with an injury and a red card. That proved costly to North Country as Berenyi was unable to participate in the shootout which went to eight players. North Country twice had the chance to win the shootout but failed to beat Seiben. In consolation play, the Penticton Pinnacles clipped the Silver Stars 2-1 (5-4) in a shootout for fifth place. The second-place Vernon Hi-Pro Sports Camels won by default when fourth-place Salmon Arm didn’t show. Penticton held the edge in play in the first half, pushing the ball past the shortstaffed Stars’ midfield. Brian Eso, John Burns and Steve Coombs held Penticton to the outside of the 18 and keeper Ted Lurkins stopping several shots and deflecting two sure goals over the bar with outstretched fingertips.

Art Renaud finally started the offence 11 minutes into the second half. He took a rebound near the 18 and volleyed a looping shot over the Penticton keeper. The Pinnacles replied 10 minutes later when a free kick made it through the wall and the second rebound was chipped over a sprawled Lurkins. Penticton went ahead eight minutes later. The last 15 minutes saw beautiful chances on both ends, including quality shots from Mark DeVolder and Ken Rath of the Stars, who equalized with two minutes left, when an attempted clear by a Penticton defender 15 yards out rebounded off a charging Rath into the top of the net. Burns, Bill Graham (who wins chicken dinner for his efforts) Rob Bauml and Rick Danyluk all scored for the Stars. Dan Ondzik needed to score for the Stars to extend the shootout, but his high shot just grazed the top of the fence near where the cars were parked. The Big O Tire Ogopogos brushed backed Kelowna Cantina’s 3-1 in other B side play. Big O took an early lead when striker Mark Wasylyk beat the last defender and the sprawling Cantina keeper. Brad Conlin later buried a penalty kick, awarded when Kelowna player kicked the back heel of a Big O player inside the box. The Cantina’s made it interesting by pressing hard early in the second half and scored on a beautiful high kick top corner above Big O keeper Paul Hunter, who was steady and confident all game. Big O completed the scoring on a rush by Henry Czerwonka from outside the 18 which ended with a Man City-like blast top shelf. Volker Otto had a strong game on defence, while keeper-turned-striker Yogi kongsdorf also turned in a solid showing.

Corey Wein supplied 2+1 as the Aquatico Bar Bar & Grill Sharks stopped the Royal LePage Whalers 6-4 in Vernon Hockey League action Tuesday night at Priest Valley Arena. Ryan Roberts, Matt Brenton and Pearse Wylie, into an empty net with 10 seconds left, completed the Sharks’ offence in front of Chris Kingdon. Travis Mann and Vernon Miskosky each pocketed a pair of assists for the Sharks, who trailed 2-0 at the break. Jason Carleton, with 2+1, Curtis Wakelin, with 1+2, and Jason Anderson replied for the Whalers, who had James Scherck in net. Corey Massie provided 3+3 and Tim Anderson added 2+2 as the Kalavida Flyers ambushed the Kal Sports Bar Blackhawks 12-3 at Civic Arena.

Rich Hoglund and Kevin Arbuckle each score twice, while Jeff Kuzniar earned 1+3, Rick Galvagno produced 1+2 and Glayne Gloin also scored in support of Byron Tiggelaar. Matt Glinsbockel picked up four helpers. Tegan Blair, Corey Webb and Sean Kober answered for the Hawks, who had Jason Webster in goal. There are a dozen teams in the VHL, formerly known as the Interior Hockey League.

Defending champion Dan Swanson of Surrey followed his opening round of 3-under par 69 with a 70 Tuesday to defeat Kelowna’s Dean Claggett by two strokes and win the $12,000 PGA of B.C. Championship at the Richmond Country Club. Swanson (Guildford Golf Course) was 1-over through 14 holes before shooting 4-under on the last four holes, highlighted with holing out from behind a tree on the par-4 15th hole for eagle to hold the overnight lead by one over Claggett (Two Eagles Golf Course & Academy). Midway through the final round, Swanson rolled in a 40-foot putt on the par-3 ninth hole to take a two stroke lead over Claggett at 6-under par heading to the final nine. A few holes later at the 13th, a two-shot swing resulted as Swanson bogeyed and Claggett birdied tying them for the lead heading to the final five holes. Claggett’s birdie attempt from the fringe on 18 slid by, giving Swanson a chance to two-putt to win, but he coolly drained the 15-footer for birdie to win by two. Swanson earned $2,400 with Claggett earning $1,650. Tsawassen Springs’ Murray Poje finished at 2-under to claim $1,100. Vernon product Jesse Crowe (Canoe Creek) went 77-77-154 to place 11th and earn $450.

Harvest festival carving out spooktacular spread of fun Morning Star Staff

Calling all pumpkin carvers. The 11th annual Harvest Pumpkin Festival in Armstrong and Spallumcheen is looking for the best of the best – the person who can turn that lowly pumpkin into a fabulous treat, a feast for the eyes. Four of the North Okanagan’s best amateur pumpkin carvers will square off at a new event this year. Three rounds of competition will be held: the traditional Jack O’Lantern, 3-D pumpkin carving and a freestyle round where anything goes. The trick? One carver will be eliminated in each round until the champion stands alone at the end. The Har vest Pumpkin Festival committee is accepting submissions from anyone who thinks they are the “pick of the crop” when it comes to pumpkin carving. Submit a short paragraph telling the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce what makes you the best and include a couple of photos of pumpkins you have carved. Submissions must be received by Oct. 12. Remember to include your name and contact information with your submission. The top four submissions will be invited to participate in a Carve-Off Friday, Oct. 21, at Askew’s Foods. There are no limits; be creative and original. Pumpkins will be on display Oct. 21-23. Pumpkins required for the competition will be provided – each carver will be required to supply their own tools. The prize? Bragging rights of course - and $100 to the first place contestant. Each carver will receive a commemorative T-shirt for the Carve-Off.’ Harvest Pumpkin Festival celebrates arts,

culture and families and has grown from a one day event to a festival spanning 14 days that features fun for

everyone. It includes demonstrations, treats, entertainment, lawn tractor racing, pumpkin catapult, petting

zoo, pumpkin carving, games, family dance and more. Thanks in part to funding received

through the Government of Canada, this year’s event will include the Carve-Off, a musical performance

by Sorella, heritage demonstrations and a medieval feast presented by the Society of Creative Anachronism.

A Lumby pilot soared at a recent competition, landing him top honours. Randy Rauck went up against 16 veteran pilots in a spot landing contest recently in Sicamous. Taking the plunge from a 2,500 vertical drop from a ramp to the beach beside the Trans Canada Highway, Rauck landed within two feet of the bulls-eye. Approximately 60

hang glider pilots and friends from across B.C. and Alberta attended the event to compete, re-unite and give remembrance to fellow friend and pilot Dano Saunders, who recently suffered a fatal heart attack. They also discussed flying experiences, something Rauck says is taking off in his region. “Hang gliding has been getting a lift of interest as of late,” said Rauck. “The Freedom Flying School and Raven Aviation in Lumby offered an e-mail marketing promotion in late

August and 100 new students signed up for an introductory hang gliding course that sold out within 24 hours.” The course attracted a number of new students from the Kelowna area, joining those who have already discovered the region’s flying jem. “Lumby and area have become a hang gliding and paragliding destination for flying tourists over the last 36 years as well, since the Lumby Air force started organizing and promoting flying from the mountains and landing at the Freedom Flight Park near Lumby.”

Morning Star Staff

A youth camp that fosters relationships and environmental awareness is seeking community support. North Okanagan residents are being asked to vote online for $16,620 in upgrades to MacKenzie Camp as part of the Aviva Community Fund. “You can vote once a day up to Oct. 19,” said Lorraine Powell, with MacKenzie Camp, which is at the north end of Mabel Lake, east of Enderby. Voting can take place at www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf11093. “Please pass this information on to all your friends and bookmark,” said Powell. Various stages of voting will occur until Jan. 25 and groups will either proceed through the process or be eliminated depending on how many votes they receive. The first stage of voting wraps up Oct. 19. The camp’s goal is to receive funds to complete the dormitory and install a commercial dishwasher and three stoves in the kitchen. “At MacKenzie Camp, all are accepted as unique, important and capable, and in every aspect of camp we try to inspire campers, staff and volunteers through relationships, nature and spirituality to grow and have fun,” said Powell. “The greater society benefits through the focus on care of creation in the camp experience, but also in staff training, work experience and preparation of young people to take their place in society.” The camp, which has been in operation since 1947, offers outdoor education to schools in the spring, summer programs to children ages seven to 16 and is available for retreats and rentals inbetween seasons. “It is operated by a dedicated volunteer board with 100 per cent of money raised going to the camp operation,” said Powell. “Though the camp is owned by the United Church of Canada all faiths are respected and valued.” The Aviva Community Fund is initiated by Aviva, an insurance company.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Associates will find you to be an exhilarating ally. Without even realizing it, you’re likely to set the right example that encourages others to utilize their assets to the fullest as well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Speak up, because your approach to solving another’s complicated business conundrum is likely to be extremely clever and effective. You might even get a reward for your suggestion. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Although attempting to establish a solid business relationship with just a verbal agreement is not recommended, as long as both parties are honorable, it can still work out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Channel any artistic urges you get into the beautification of your home or personal attire. Neither you nor anybody else will easily tire of your choices, regardless of how extreme they may be. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Not to worry if there is a lot of conversational buzz going on behind your back, because it is likely to all be quite complimentary. In fact, several people will be copying what you do. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Check your resources to see where you’ve been a bit wasteful, so that you can use this overflow down the line for getting a few things you truly need. Chances are there will be enough to go around. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Sincerity is the ingredient that closes deals. If you’re representing something that

you truly believe in, you shouldn’t have any trouble making some good sales. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If it can better your position, there is no reason why you shouldn’t make a few concessions, even if you have to give up more than you thought. It’s the end results that count. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Let someone who is willing to work on your behalf get involved and pitch in wherever and whenever she or he can, especially if it’s within this person’s means to do what you can’t. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can disprove the axiom that says, “Nice guys finish last.” Demonstrate to others how you can achieve big objectives without stepping on anybody else’s toes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although you may not have a clue how you can accomplish what must get done, chances are you will have access to those who can fill in all the missing pieces for you.

Maybe Gord Molendyk would have made more money not to wear the jacket. The amiable Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP detachment’s media spokesperson earned another $140 towards the North Okanagan Hospice Society by donning the same, loud jacket he wore during Friday’s Dancing With the Vernon Stars event at the weekly Monday morning media RCMP briefing session. “On Friday, I was asked whether we would auction the jacket off and nobody wanted to buy it. I can’t understand why,” chuckled Molendyk as he displayed the bright red jacket adorned with silver stars Monday morning. “An anonymous donor said they would donate $100 if I wore it to the Monday morning meeting, and other people started putting money in.” Molendyk and his wife, Christine, performed a night-club two-step during the popular Dancing With the Vernon Stars event before a capacity crowd at the Vernon Recreation Complex Friday. It was Christine who found the jacket while on a trip looking for clothes to wear for the Broadway-themed evening. “Just my luck, the damned thing fit me,” laughed Molendyk. “So I had to wear it.” The evening of dance drew amateur couples, including the Molendyks, and local dignitaries paired with professional dancers from Vernon’s Cheek to Cheek studio, which organizes and hosts the event with Digital Dean Photography. The event raise more than $18,000 for NOHA.

The music, song, dance and theatre performance is an unforgettable journey of 120 years in Canada. Commemorating the arrival of Ukrainian settlers to Canada more than a century ago, Donbas celebrates its native land with a repertoire of beautiful choreography set to lyrical rhythms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enchanting audiences worldwide, this ensemble brings an infusion of music, dance and theatre in a kaleidoscope reflective of the rich history and cultural landscape of Ukraine,â&#x20AC;? said Stephanie Loo De Nevers,

Violinist Innesa Tymochko (below) blends Ukrainian folk and classical music. who is doing the publicity for the Vernon show. Donbas began its creative roots in 1937 in the city of Donestk.

She may just be 22 years old, but singersongwriter Brenna MacQuarrie has already leaned enough about the music business to last a lifetime. In the last year, the Edmonton-raised artist, who now lives in Toronto, has recorded and released her own album and has booked a tour of western Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I accomplished this all with no management. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been tough, but nothing any

musician canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle,â&#x20AC;? she said. Since releasing her debut album, Hybrid, in January, MacQuarrie has been working towards taking her new material on the road. Over the course of the summer, she has been making it happen in western Canada, and is looking forward to completing the branch of the tour that will include the Rockies, the Okanagan and the Lower Mainland.

Traveling with percussionist Fred Brenton and fellow singer-songwriter Jory Kinjo, MacQuarrie will perform her blend of upbeat and heartfelt soul and blues in 10 cities over two weeks. The kickoff show for the Hybrid tour takes place in Banff, and winds its way to the North Okanagan with a performance at Lorenzoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CafĂŠ in Ashton Creek Oct. 15.

art tribute, part chronicle, Pearl Jam’s new release PJ20 is also part movie soundtrack. In short, the double album is the aural equivalent of a biography/documentary celebrating the band’s 20 years of existence and owes its provenance to Cameron Crowe, celebrated journalist/ director and fan. Crowe’s vision was to create an updated version of The Who’s The Kids are All Right, a monumental, still inspiring and definitive film/soundtrack bio of the group, done fan style. This makes some sense, The Who being a rabid fan-magnet entity and a Pearl Jam favourite and inspiration. PJ20 may not be as raw as that earlier homage but for warts-and-all realism and honest

From here on, the album is about time, confidence and the emerging acoustic-electric character that Pearl Jam would evolve into. Something happened quickly as detected in the scheisse-quality recording of Why Go in Germany and the muted-anthemic reading of Black in New York, both in 1992. Other moments in this deep journey are startling, due to creative contrast. When people care, they can rock – Not for You is proof. And when they want to expand and reach out, they bring wooden hymns

Cineplex beams Shatner documentary Morning Star Staff

Star Trek fans, set your phasers to stun! William Shatner’s new documentary, The Captains, lands in participating movie theatres across Canada on Thursday at 7 p.m. (local time) for a one-night only presentation. This special event, presented by Cineplex Entertainment’s Front Row Centre Events and Ballinran Entertainment, is the final frontier to see this highly anticipated documentary in theatres. Written and directed by Shatner, The Captains is a feature length documentary that “boldly goes where no man has gone before,” giving viewers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at one of the most durable and profitable franchises in entertainment history, and the men and women who made the Star Trek brand an international phenomenon since 1966.

“Movie theatre seats across the country are the closest fans can get to the captain’s chair on this voyage that looks at the iconic role of a Star Trek captain,” said Pat Marshall, vice-president, communications and investor relations, Cineplex. “Trekkies will not want to miss this one-night only event.” Tickets can be purchased at participating theatre box offices, through the Cineplex Mobile Apps and online at www.cineplex.com/events or at the mobile site m.cineplex.com. The Captains shows in Vernon Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. at Galaxy Cinemas, 2306 Highway 6.

Dive into a feel-good tale Dolphin Tale ★★★1/2 out of 5

A

guy like me – to qualify that statement... old enough to grumble about people who turn without putting on their signal — could sit back and find oodles of faults with a movie like Jason Armstrong Dolphin Tale; it’s a little cheesy, it’s emotionally manipulative, and, at one point, the great Morgan Freeman calls a dolphin “a fish.” Yep. I could. But I won’t. ‘Cause, honestly, this is one of those feel-good beauties that would make me feel like a cold hearted grouch if I were to nitpick. Sometimes, you’ve gotta go with your heart – and Dolphin Tale has a whole lot of that. The movie is about Winter, the real-life dolphin who was accidentally snagged in a crab trap off the Florida coast, lost her tail, and – with the help of a young outcast, an aquarium

on the beach. Socially awkward and failing every class in school, Sawyer finds new purpose in helping the dolphin to recover. It’s a pretty predictable role that could’ve swerved into precocious, but Gamble is so subtle in his performance (the little guy probably doesn’t understand the term “grandstanding”), he’s quite easy to root for. That said, predictable does sum up the supporting grown-up line-up...Morgan Freeman does his loveable

In essence, it’s like an underwater version of Rocky – only, instead of a punch-drunk Italian boxer, it’s a squeaky fish...er, make that mammal. Nathan Gamble (if he looks familiar, it’s because the kid has been doing bit parts in big movies like The Dark Knight and Marley and Me for a long time) plays Sawyer, the 11-yearold boy who, along with a fisherman, finds Winter stranded

Nathan Gamble stars in the story of a boy who develops a relationship with a dolphin.

curmudgeon stint as the prosthetics expert, Harry Connick Jr is the aw-shucks marine veterinarian, and Ashley Judd, playing Sawyer’s mom, does the “mom” thing...crinkles her brow when she’s concerned and cheers her kid on when she’s happy. None are jawdropping efforts, but they’re serviceable and don’t take away from the reason we’re all seeing the movie anyway, and that’s a certain sea critter that will capture your heart. And if she doesn’t, check your pulse. This isn’t director Charles Martin Smith’s first time at this sort of dance – he wrote and directed Air Bud, so he knows exactly who his audience is (kids) and exactly what they want (a few tears, a few laughs, and Morgan Freeman churning out sweet lines like “Just because you’re hurt doesn’t mean you’re broken.”) Dolphin Tale is probably Smith’s best flick yet, simply because it accomplishes everything it wants to do, but appeals to the adults who bring the young ones. Or, at least...it should. The feature is currently playing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

The Bean Scene Coffee House is now featuring Our Town, 20 paintings by local artist Ruth Nygard, for the month of October. Born and raised in Vernon, Nygard said even as a small child, she was drawn to art. “There was no question about where my strengths were and teachers encouraged my art,” she said. “When other children were playing with toys, all I needed was a pencil and paper and I was in bliss. “I am well versed with painting subjects

in Vernon as that was where my themes of course came from as a child, so this art show with Vernon being part of the focus was inevitably going to happen. Nygard calls Our Town her tribute to Vernon because this is where it all began for her. She feels fortunate to have been able to move back to her hometown, where in 1992, she was commissioned to paint seven large murals to commemorate the city’s centennial. “I wanted to paint more of what Vernon is

today and I have taken this opportunity to do so now. We have beautiful scenic vistas that I could have painted and many artists have, but I wanted to paint people and the town itself. “We have a lot of character here and we were ranked number-one in entrepreneurial spirit by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business plus we were also ranked one of the top six most desirable communities to retire to in North America — these plus many reasons say we are worth painting. I will continue to do commissioned work and portraits of course, but I am now working toward these types of showings also.” Nygard comes from an artistic family: her mother was an artist and her daughter currently works as a computer graphic artist who works on feature films and in television. Nygard’s exhibit, Our Town, is on now at the Bean Scene Coffee House, 2923-30th Ave., downtown Vernon.

Students enjoy the harvest CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Everyone was eating their veggies at the harvest lunch for the Okanagan Science Centre Landed Learning program at St. James School. The students planted and cared for the garden in the spring and the volunteer farm friends, experienced gardeners, took over for the summer. With the harvest in, dietitian Jan Hillis, who facilitates the food and nutrition part of the program, came up with the recipes: Swiss chard stir-fry, potato-sunchoke soup, curried squash soup, pasta with

tomato sauce, cabbage coleslaw and cantaloupe. “You always have to have a taste. That’s the ‘no thank-you bite,’ then you can say you don’t want any more,” she told the students and guests. “It takes seven times to learn to like a new food. It’s important that we learn about food and where it comes from.” Farm friend Jocelyne Sewell has been with the Landed Learning program, coordinated by Dr. Linda Peterat, who developed the program at UBC, for four years, since it started in Vernon. The program

is sponsored by the Okanagan Science Centre and the Knights of Columbus. “It’s so interesting to work with the kids and see how they enjoy it and how enthusiastic they are about learning new things,” said Sewell. The students agree. “I like the harvest and making the food. This food is good,” said Emilia Durfield, a 10-year-old Grade 5 student at St. James School who was in the program this year. The Landed Learning program will resume in the spring with Grade 4 students from the school.

Foster families open their hearts and homes MARY MCNEIL Special to The Morning Star

October marks the 21st year of celebrating Foster Family Month in British Columbia, an important chance to honour the incredible work of foster families across the province. Every child and teen is unique and everyone needs, and deserves, a safe and welcoming home. Foster families take on one of society’s most important jobs — caring for children and youth at a time when they need it the most. To all the foster parents and families in B.C., I want to extend our profound thanks.

Your love and care give children and youth in difficult situations the support they need to develop into strong, confident adults. Every day across British Columbia, around 3,300 foster families open their hearts and their homes to about 5,900 vulnerable children and youth. However, B.C., like so many other jurisdictions in the world, always needs more foster families of all cultural, social and ethnic backgrounds. Anyone 19 years or older can make the decision to open their home to a child or youth in need of care. The most important qualifications for a foster parent are a strong desire to make a positive

Come in and See Our New Look!

difference in a child’s life, and a commitment to provide a safe, nurturing, stable home for children when they are not able to live with their family. I encourage anyone interested in becoming a foster parent to call the Foster Line at 1-800-663-9999. I am grateful for the important work undertaken by foster families and agencies such as the B.C. Federation of Foster Parent Associations and the Federation of Aboriginal Foster Parents that support them. I hope you will join me in celebrating foster families now and throughout the year. Mary McNeil is B.C.’s Minister of Children and Family Development.

BIBLE BASICS

Rev.7:9: “after this I (the apostle John) beheld a great multitude of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues...they are before the throne of God...he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.” R.V.: “shall spread his tabernacle over them.” The reference is of the Shekinah glory that overshadows the Mercy Seat. Yahweh will dwell among men over all the nations through God manifestation: apokalupsis: to be revealed a world-wide revelation.

The right employee in the right job at the right time makes everyone happy. That’s what happened at WestWinn Group which builds Harbercraft boats when the company cooperated with Vernon and District Association for Community Living (VDACL) to place two Venture Training clients in jobs at the plant. WestWinn Group was the recipient of the VCDAL Employer of the Year Award presented at the annual barbecue hosted by Silver Star Rotary. “We had Venture Training crews doing our yard work and it worked out well,” said Mike Clements, production manager for WestWinn Group. “I had been thinking we might have a place in our production crew for some people from Venture Training and it turned out to be a perfect match. The guys did training here with us and they fit in well with our crew and are doing a fantastic job helping to keep the shop

clean and everyone is happy. We’re proud of the award.” Clements led a tour of the facility which produces aluminum boats, from the sheets of metal to the completely finished product, and sells them all over North America and Europe. Harbercraft boats have been in production since 1952 and the plant has been in Vernon since 1972, in the present plant for two years. “I like everything here. I like the crew and it’s a good job,” said Curtis Sheena, who had done yard work for WestWinn and has been working in the plant for a year and a half. VDACL vocational counselor Ben Braun thanked all the local employers who make the job program work for their businesses and the Venture Training clients. “The employer gets a quality employee who wants to work and who is excited to be there. Working gives the clients a meaningful place in the community and a sense of pride and

Heartfelt singing lifts the spirit, opens the mind and creates presence,” said McIntyre, who is a professional singer and retired Okanagan College English professor. “No one needs special training or even previous experience in singing to find their own voice. All that is needed is a heartfelt desire to overcome their reluctance.” The workshop takes place Oct. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 3301-22nd St., Vernon. The cost is $75.

Quite recently, my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband died from cancer. Two days later, my sister and her friend were trying to sell his unused Oxycontin and morphine.

5 REASONS WHY HYUNDAI IS THE BEST-SELLING CAR BRAND IN CANADA.

TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. government will provide more money for special-needs support in the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public schools, and provide new training for teachers, according to Premier Christy Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first throne speech. Lieutenant-Governor Steven Point delivered the speech Monday to open a new session of the B.C. legislature. It confirms that the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;net zeroâ&#x20AC;? negotiation mandate for public sector union contracts will be imposed for the B.C. Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Federation, whose contract expired last June. The BCTF has been refusing non-essential duties since school started in September, and on Monday the B.C. Public School Employers Association met to consider reducing teacher pay or imposing a lockout in an effort to force a settlement. The BCTF is demanding wage parity with other provinces and a range of benefit improvements, as well as hundreds of millions of dollars to reduce class sizes and increase special-needs support staff. Education Minister George Abbott said the additional money for special needs support will be in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;tens of millionsâ&#x20AC;? over the next three years. Decreasing class sizes by one student across the province would cost $150 million, and research suggests that smaller classes are far down the list of things that improve education outcomes, he said. NDP leader Adrian Dix said improvements to special needs support are only coming because of a B.C. Supreme Court decision earlier this year giving the government a year to consult on class size and composition limits taken out of teacher bargaining in 2002. The speech also commits the government to make sure teachers who â&#x20AC;&#x153;abuse their position of trust are removed and not permitted to return.â&#x20AC;? Abbott said amendments are coming to legislation governing the B.C. College of Teachers. Victoria lawyer Don Avison reviewed the college last year and found that BCTF influence allowed teachers to return to classrooms after being convicted of serious crimes including cocaine trafficking and sexual assault of students.

sion of a program begun last year in Central Okanagan and we are very excited to be able to offer this opportunity

to our local youth,” said Linda Yule of United Way. Youth groups up to age 25 can apply until

Each youth team must either partner with or be affiliated with a non-profit organization. “Both School District 22 and 83 as well as the local campuses of Okanagan College are aware of this program and have expressed interest in their students becoming involved,” said Yule. “We would like to encourage all organizations and non-profits with youth groups to look into applying.” Telus is pleased to be on board with the initiative to promote youth involvement and leadership to make a difference. “At Telus we have a philosophy to ‘give where we live’ and it’s encouraging to hear from youth who share this commitment to creating positive and lasting change in their own communities,” said Steve Jenkins, Telus General Manager for the BC Interior South. “The projects made possible through last year’s grants were so impressive and inspiring that we doubled our contribution from last year to $10,000 to help expand the program to Vernon and Kamloops youth and enable even more great work in our communities.” Interior Savings joined the program as a sponsor in 2011, and believe that a partnership approach to investing in youth makes good sense for the future. “Today’s youth represent our future workforce and the future leaders of our community,” said Gene Creelman, Interior Savings’ VP of Marketing and Communications. “The youth grants program provides a safe environment for these young people to stretch themselves and develop leadership and life skills that they can only get through real-life experiences.” Applications for the North Okanagan and the Shuswap are available from United Way in Vernon at 3304 - 30th Avenue or by email to unitedwaynocs@shaw. ca.

We will never walk on the moon.

Bridge by Phillip Alder Is the opening lead wet or dry? Ruth Draper, an actress who died in 1956, said: “Wasn’t the artist brave to go out and paint a sea as rough as that? I don’t see how he kept his canvas dry.” Bridge can be like that in several instances. A bid can be brave or foolhardy; a play might work out well or badly; or, as in this case, an opening lead might beat the contract or let it make -- and sometimes, even then, it depends upon the skill level of the declarer. For my next lesson on our cruise, I concentrated on declarer’s reading the opening lead, working out what information it gives away, and deciding how to use that data with effect.

In this example, South is in three no-trump. West leads a fourth-highest spade six. What should declarer do? South’s sequence showed a balanced hand with 25-27 points. North had an easy pass. When the lead is fourthhighest, apply the Rule of Eleven. Six from 11 is five. So there are five spades higher than the six in the North, East and South hands combined. And South can see all five: dummy’s 10 and seven, and his own king, jack and nine. East cannot have a spade higher than the six. How does that help? Declarer should call for dummy’s 10, which will win the trick. Then he can run the club queen

and get home even if the finesse loses, because his spade king will still be a stopper. Here, he collects two overtricks. Note, though, that if South wins trick one in his hand, East gets in with the club king and pushes a spade through, giving West four tricks in that suit and killing the contract.

Be part of something monumental. Funded largely by the MS Society, Canadian researchers have brought the cure for MS within reach. Let’s take this last step together.

It’s time. Give now. 1-800-361-2985
