HARVEST TIME

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the harvest, and picking apples is just what Marc Demers, manager of Brookside Organic Orchards in the BX, has been doing for the last few days.

ficient money to initiate infrastructure like a new parkade. City officials defend their handling of parking downtown. “We have said there will be zero loss of parking so if we take away a space, we will get it somewhere else,” said Coun. Jack Gilroy. As an example, Gilroy says the former Vernon Flower Shop building on 31st Avenue will be demolished for parking once the 2012 Winter Games stop using it for an office next year. Gilroy isn’t convinced there is a shortage of parking. “I drive downtown every day and I never have a problem finding parking. I may have to walk a few blocks to get somewhere,” he said. “You can’t expect parking in front of every business.”

Major highway upgrades are being expedited in Enderby. Work on Highway 97A will resume this week after initial concerns that it would be stalled until spring because utility poles had not been moved. “We will push forward and work around the poles,” said Ken Aura, senior project manager with the Ministry of Transportation. The goal now is to have left-turn lanes and traffic lights installed in November before snow falls. “We wouldn’t be doing this if we didn’t think it Dee Wejr was achievable,” said Aura. E n d e r b y council was told last week that it was unlikely the project, which started in October 2010, would be completed until spring 2012 because some utility poles had not been relocated yet. Poles may be moved this fall but road work will proceed either way. “The poles run right along where we want to run the curb and gutter. We will run the curb up to the poles and run around them,” said Aura, adding that does create some inefficiencies for the crews. With both the road contractor and utilities on site, there could be some delays for motorists. “It will be an active construction zone and there will be the usual impacts with that,” said Aura. The ministry’s decision to relaunch construction this week is being welcomed by city officials. “This is good news for the community,” said Mayor Dee Wejr. “I was really disappointed when I thought it wouldn’t get completed until spring.” However, timelines could be negatively impacted by poor weather. “Paving is a concern once it gets cool and wet but we can add to the paving mixture to give us room with the weather,” said Aura.

Resources drying up in Lumby RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A Lumby social agency is strapped for cash and that has politicians demanding action. Members of village council recently met with Mary McNeil, children and family development minister, to discuss ongoing financial challenges at the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre. “They need core funding and if they don’t get it, programs could be cut,� said Mayor Kevin Acton. Acton says there is an immediate need for the provincial government to fund the centre adequately. “They are the social fiber of the community,� he said of the centre, which offers numerous programs. “Without them, residents from the area will have to go to Vernon for social services.� Among the programs offered are family support, adult counselling, home and school support, seniors drop-in, recreation equipment, water restoration, employment initiatives for youth, child care refer-

“It will be a challenge to keep our doors open in the future.� — Gay Jewitt rals and the Good Food Box program. Gay Jewitt, Whitevalley Community Resource Centre executive director, says agencies in small and large communities face the same pressures of rent, insurance and salaries. “Comparable funding isn’t necessarily given to small towns because of the lower population, yet we are still expected to provide the same services as the larger cities only on a smaller budget,� she said in a letter to council. “This year, we have once again trimmed the operating budget as much as possible and yet even with fundraising, we will be faced with a $20,000 deficit and be forced to dip into our reserve. At this rate, our reserve will be depleted in a two-year

period.� The centre’s budget for communitybased activities is $750,000 to $800,000 a year. Jewitt says wages at the centre are about 20 per cent lower than in neighbouring communities and the benefit plan for staff is inadequate. “We risk losing well-trained, qualified staff to other agencies,� she said. “Our core funding continues to be insufficient and it will be a challenge to keep our doors open in the future.� The current situation is of great concern for Rick Fairbairn, a centre board member. “Having funds for the organization is critical,� said Fairbairn, who is also rural Lumby director for the Regional District of North Okanagan. Fairbairn says Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster is aware of the problem and he is hopeful that the government will increase funding levels. “It’s an important service for the community to deal with the social problems we have.�

A Falkland group that helps people in need is at risk of disbanding unless new volunteers sign up. Several members of the Falkland-Westwold First Responders have recently left town and that means there are less people left to respond to motor vehicle accidents and other medical emergencies. “If we cannot find volunteers, we will have to consider closing the service down,� said Judy Vandergucht, spokesperson. Vandergucht believes the First Responders is vital to the wellbeing of residents of Falkland and Westwold. “With no medical service in town, the First Responders have fulfilled a need to minimize the risk of disability and death,� she said, adding that the group is appreciative of all current and past members. “There is no question that over the years they have done a remarkable job, and we are forever grateful to those who have come forward to provide us with their services.� Based on Falkland’s tradition of community spirit, the group is hopeful new members will step forward. “We are looking for volunteers, male or female, young or old with a wish to help those in crisis,� said Vandergucht. “Knowledge of first aid is an asset but willingness to take the first responders training and work with B.C. Ambulance is essential. A calming nature is of great importance as sometimes it takes a while for the ambulance to arrive, and its important to reassure the victim.� For more information or to volunteer, contact Joan at 250-379-2291 or jeswift@live.com. “If you have been looking for a new experience in your life, this is the job for you,� said Vandergucht.

This helicopter is being held by police pending an official forfeiture process. $425,000 just to move illicit drugs across the border underscores the actual value of the illicit drug movement across our shared border,” said Linteau. “A seizure such as this may make individuals involved in criminal organizations think twice before using this method next time.”

The Nelson RCMP Border Integrity Program’s major objective is to focus on national security, organized crime and criminal activity that happens between ports of entry along the CanadaU.S. border. U.S. authorities also played a hand in this investigation.

A helicopter police believe was used to smuggle cocaine into Canada from the U.S. was seized at a Spallumcheen property in May. The machine is currently being held by police pursuant to an order made under the Civil Forfeiture Act. Police released details of the seizure of the Bell 206 chopper on Wednesday. The seizure was the result of a search warrant executed by members of the Nelson RCMP Border Integrity program. “This search warrant stemmed from an ongoing investigation into a suspicious helicopter seen flying in the area of Lumby over the course of about two years,” said Cpl. Annie Linteau, spokesperson for the RCMP in British Columbia. Police report the 33-year-old owner and suspected operator of the helicopter was arrested in May but released without charges. Criminal charges are not being pursued in the matter due to a lack of evidence. The Nelson RCMP border program continued its investigation and referred the seizure to the B.C. Civil Forfeiture Office for follow up. Police are confident the helicopter was used by organized crime. “The fact that a criminal organization would purchase such a valuable vehicle for

Lake Country backs band planning RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The Okanagan Indian Band’s desire for long-term planning has the backing of a neighbour. Lake Country council will support the band’s application to a federal program for land use planning initiatives. “It’s good to see them moving forward,” said Mayor James Baker. The band’s Duck Lake reserve is immediately adjacent to the municipal boundaries and Baker says any development there could impact his community. “We’d like to see them get some projects that provide them with revenue and we are pleased to provide them with services,” said Baker referring to water and planning assistance. Sewer services would likely be available from the City of Kelowna which encompasses the reserve lands. The band is seeking funds from the federal B.C. Capacity Initiative. The program, which is funded by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, helps bands prepare for consultation, negotiation and management of land and resources as part of current or future

aboriginal title settlement agreements.

Back Pain Or Sciatica? Slips and falls, poor posture, stressful activities, and pregnancy can all affect the alignment of your back. When the alignment of your spine is off, nerves become irritated causing common symptoms like back ache when sitting “too long”, pain into the buttocks and down the legs, and soreness after sports/work activities. Vertebrae that misalign can create sciatic nerve inflammation, or “sciatica”. This creates pain that goes down the leg, numbness in the legs and feet, or a “crawling sensation” down the legs. People with spinal misalignments may notice a loss of flexibility, not being able to move as easily as they once could, or no longer being able to stand or sit up straight. These may be signs of damage to your back and an unhealthy nerve system. If these symptoms sound familiar, call to make an appointment to see if we can help. Chiropractic care is a drug free, natural alternative for reducing low back pain and dysfunction, and helping with the pain of sciatica. Find out how we can help. We’d love to meet you!

Let’s get smart

T

he annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention spent quite a bit of time talking about new wireless technology. Unfortunately, most of it was wasted on ignorance and fear, fanned by the NDP, Green Party and some like-minded opportunists in local government. A tiny group of protesters gathered outside the Vancouver convention centre each morning, setting up a pile of picket signs wailing about imagined smart meter sins from privacy invasion to human rights violation. One of them allowed that she was wearing “special clothing” to ward off the bad rays. That’s understandable, since BC Hydro calculates that a delegate’s wireless sigTom Fletcher nal exposure from four days at the UBCM convention is equivalent to standing next to a smart meter for 1,147 years. And that’s not even calculating those other horrible sources of electromagnetic energy bombarding downtown Vancouver, such as traffic lights, spark plugs, and let’s not forget the Sun or Earth’s molten core. It wasn’t all foolishness, however. I attended an economic development panel, at which physician and cabinet minister Margaret MacDiarmid described the continuing extension of rural cell phone and internet service underway since the extension of the B.C. government’s contract with Telus. There was not a discouraging word about cell phone towers, the innovation that spawned the anti-wireless cult in California many years ago. Quite the contrary. MacDiarmid was beseeched to get cell service to northern Vancouver Island and un-serviced parts of the Interior, and to cut through the multi-ministry maze still required for routine approval of towers. Cell phones save lives on remote highways. In the main hall, supposedly experienced municipal leaders continued to parrot fear of “microwaves” and such drivel, either because

they believe it or because they are pandering to those who do. This continued on talk radio, which stoked the smart meter “controversy” all week, apparently because it reliably generates angry calls. The descent into farce became complete when delegates had a show of hands on a resolution to place a moratorium on a smart meter installation program that BC Hydro has already paid for. The vote was too close to call, so they had to fish out their wireless voting devices to vote about 55 per cent in favour of the moratorium. Premier Christy Clark was asked after the convention if her government would contemplate a moratorium on meter installation. “No,” she replied. This is not surprising, since the motion effectively asks BC Hydro to waste $930 million. “I’ve spent quite a bit of time talking with the experts about it,” Clark said. “I don’t share those health concerns, because when we’re surrounded by wireless and cell phones, there are a lot of other sources of the problem that they’re concerned about.” I’ve argued with numerous people about this. They often start with an exaggerated claim about the World Health Organization’s risk rating. In fact, WHO acknowledges that people who claim hypersensitivity to electromagnetic signals can’t identify them in controlled studies. WHO also notes that cell phone tower emissions are effectively five times weaker than the FM radio and TV signals to which we’ve all been exposed for decades. Cell base stations reach no more than two per cent of international limits. And smart meter signals are much weaker than that. I’m done arguing with people who make up their own facts. I’ll just address those who haven’t bought into this nonsense. Please, survey your council candidates on smart meters, and on Nov. 19, support only those who have the common sense to understand what a smart grid is.

If you have never needed to access services at a local resource centre, you might be tempted to question their existence. But those who have ever used them know all too well that such services are social safety nets for the community. The range of services offered at local resource centres can benefit people of all ages seeking assistance in a variety of circumstances. Whether it’s a senior trying to fax or e-mail a letter to the editor, a teen looking for employment, a single-mom struggling to find day care or any individual needing physical or mental support, such centres are there to lend a hand with various programs and services. News that Lumby’s social safety net is struggling to keep its doors open is unwelcome. Particularly in Lumby – a small town that has already had its share of major businesses close down. It’s not as if the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre is even a business profiting from clients. Volunteers and staff are a driving force behind the non-profit organization, which offers free services so even those on lowincomes can receive the help they need. It is a service that many rely on, and have done so since its inception in 1989. Without the programs and services, people will be forced to go to Vernon for help. But the truth is, those needing help might be deterred, or might not have the means to travel, and never get the help they need, and deserve. The centre supports and promotes the health and well-being of its community. Without it, the fate of Lumby and surrounding areas could be in jeopardy.

F

orget utopia and fix the potholes. We all want to live in a beautiful place. It's nice to imagine a superbly healthy population walking, hiking, and riding bikes along Ribbons of Green while a soft breeze stirs the leaves of a tree-shaded city. It's a lovely thought that someday our compliant citizens will all wend their way slowly through the city on public transit, stopping here and there to inhale fresh spring air with a great big happy smile. But that's not reality. It's not reality now and it won't be reality in the future. It's neither fun nor safe to bike in the winter, and winter is an unfortunate part of our material plane here in Vernon. Slipping and sliding along an ice-encrusted hiking trail isn't most people's idea of a good time either, and I dare say most senior citizens aren't going to strap on snowshoes and set out to slog over hill-and-dale in the name of fitness. And using public transit as a principle form of transportation is always

a much better idea for someone else to follow than it is for ourselves. I'll hazard a guess that most people, including the folks who argue most vigorously for it, aren’t about to take the bus themselves on a regular basis. This disconnect between what some folks imagine and what reality dictates has become a real problem in Vernon. It's one thing to dream about Never-Neverland, but quite another to spend taxpayers' money preparing for it. Shrinking roads and destroying parking spots to accommodate hypo-

PROTESTORS UNINFORMED This is regarding the story in the Sept. 30 Morning Star showing business owners on 43rd avenue marching with their protest signs saying, “We are the boss,” etc. Perhaps they do not live in Vernon, or if they do, they have not been paying attention to what has been going on in their city for the past year or so. Where were they when the new city plan was being presented to the citizens of Vernon so that we could choose what kind of city we wanted to live in. Saying that bike lanes should only be in certain parts of the city makes no sense. For cyclists to be able to ride their bikes safely in Vernon, there needs to be bike lanes throughout the city instead of having them end suddenly like some of the sidewalks in Vernon do. If we create a safe environment for cyclist to ride their bikes, there will be more of us out there. One business owner asked where the mandate for making these changes came from. It came from the citizens of Vernon. The ones who live here in town and walk and cycle here in town and the same ones who help to keep the businesses in town going. We took the time to attend the forums that the city of Vernon presented in every area of town so we could make a choice as to the kind of city we wanted to live in. The changes to 43rd Avenue are part of what we asked for. So it looks as though the boss (people of

thetical future cyclists is not only a waste of money, but actively counterproductive in a city already short of parking space. Trying to attract businesses (another annoying necessity in the real world) to a city with diminishing roadways and no parking will be an uphill battle at best. Let me be the first to say that the intersection improvement at 25th Avenue and Highway 97 is wonderful, and as a bicycle enthusiast, I love the new bicycle and vehicle lanes. What I cannot understand is the current plan to turn 43rd Avenue into a three-lane, traffic-jam-in-the-making.

Vernon) has spoken some time ago. I commend the City of Vernon for the incredibly well-presented plan that allowed us to make a choice for a more pedestrian-friendly city and for carrying through with that plan in the face of opposition. Keep up the good work and stick to the plan we chose. Betty Morrison CALL FOR CHANGE Council supported the funding application on March 14 and on June 13. Council made and confirmed the following resolution: "That council instructs staff that subject to successful award of the 100 percent $868,000 gas tax innovation fund grant to proceed with the implementation of the road diet on 43rd Avenue between 27th and 32nd streets," (Spiers opposed). The news release on Sept. 27 stated that council's resolution at the time of application was that no decision on the commencement of the project would be made by council until such time as grant approval had been made from the gas tax program. This does not reconcile with the council motion stated above. Mayor Lippert stated on the radio that the road diet is only a proposal and stressed that city council had not approved the project. Mayor Lippert also stated that, “suggestions that council was going ahead with the changes are incorrect.” Totally misleading.

First, anyone who rides a bike knows very well that bicycle arteries in a grid-plan city are a non-starter. It's easy to drive a car three blocks to cross Highway 97 at a light, but people on bikes will cross wherever they happen to be, because it takes significant effort to travel three or four blocks which is to say that once all is said and done, 43rd Avenue is going to attract no more bikes than it did before, and the adjacent streets will have no fewer bikes than they did before. Second, how are cyclists going to be any safer on a road with cars that have less room? Third, how are the businesses along 43rd Avenue going to survive without adequate parking? Fourth, even if the idea wasn't counterproductive, what makes it important enough to devote scarce resources towards in the middle of a recession? Meanwhile, existing roads are falling apart. City council needs to realign with reality and prioritize its resources. Forget utopia and fix the potholes. Scott Anderson

He also suggested that someone had “twisted” the information for their own ends, made reference to this being an election year and refused to point any fingers. Mayor Lippert and staff are the ones that have “twisted” the facts. The Greater Vernon area contributed to the widening of 43rd Avenue from 32nd Street to Alexis Park Drive when Wesbild Centre was built. To reduce the capacity for traffic going east from Wesbild Centre is really irresponsible and negates the value of the previous expenditure. So much of the spending by this administration and this council has been for projects that do not address the serious deficiencies in critical infrastructure that exist and do not address the structural financial deficit that they have created. The absurd and excessive expenditures on 29th Street and lack of concern and consultation with the businesses further illustrates the arrogance of this council and administration. Consider the comments by the chair of the regional district: “We need to have openness and honesty and people are not being open”. Look at the fiasco created by Vernon related to fire dispatch which resulted in extra costs for Vernon taxpayers. No wonder frustration forced the chair to retire. It is time for major changes at city hall before it is too late. Barry Beardsell

HOSPITAL FUNDING In a perfect world, the empty floors at VJH would have beds and doctors and nurses to look after those beds, but maybe the letter writer should ask where the funds will come from to do so. Do we take money from school budgets, or the many other government programs that are being funded? There are only so many tax dollars to go around and I as a taxpayer cannot afford to fund all of the utopian programs that the general public wants. Louise Macleod

“We are hoping Vernon will strongly support this campaign and set the bar for the remaining cities on this final leg of Michael’s journey. We need to dispel the myths and remove the stigma that surrounds mental illness and prevents individuals from seeking early treatment,” said Sandy Rysen, executive director of the Vernon branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association,. “We are very grateful to people like Michael who will speak out about their illness. This assists tremendously in shining the light on stigma and drawing attention and awareness to mental illness. Mental illness is just that — an illness. We openly discuss our physical aches and pains. There is treatment and there should not be an shame or secrecy attached to seeking it.” One in five Canadians personally deals with a mental health issue. Of those, only onethird seek treatment due to the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Hall renos sought ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Armstrong-Spallumcheen’s fire hall needs to be bigger. Fire chief Ian Cummings has requested township and city councils retain the services of Salmon Arm architect Bernd Hermanski to come up with a conceptual plan to determine what’s needed to improve the functionality of the fire hall and what the approximate cost will be to do so. “We need to increase the size of our bays,” said Cummings. “We don’t have enough space between our fire trucks. We’ll be replacing our rescue unit in a couple of years and it will be longer than our current unit and won’t fit in there right now.” Cummings also said the hall’s current classroom is small for the department’s 40 members, and that the work space and cleaning areas are inadequate for the department’s needs. The plan would call for renovating the existing hall, not erecting a new building. “The proposal is for an initial fire hall expansion study to come up with ideas, conceptual drawings and pricing,” said Cummings. The matter came before Spallumcheen council Monday, with council unanimously backing the proposal to have Hermanski come up with a conceptual plan.

YOU AND THE LAW SHARED CUSTODY BENEFITS CHILDREN By Janice Mucalov, LL.B. Many fathers want to continue to be involved with their children after their marriage breaks down. Shared custody is thus increasingly common, and courts more often than not grant both parents “joint custody.” It’s a good arrangement – especially for the children – if two tests are met. First, is it in the child’s best interests, i.e., will the child benefit from ongoing contact with both parents? (Usually this is the case.) And second, do the parents cooperate sufficiently to make a shared custody arrangement workable? In general, it means that both parents share in making major decisions about the child’s schooling, extra-curricular activities, health and other issues important to the child – regardless of where the child actually lives most of the time. Many different living arrangements are possible. For example, when Marnie and Gary S. quarrelled over the custody of their seven-year-old son, Cole, the court ordered this joint custody arrangement: The first week, Cole would live with his mother Monday to Thursday and with Nick his father Friday to Sunday. The second week, he’d live with his mother Tuesday to Thursday and with his father Friday to Monday. An important factor was that the family lived close to each other in a small town, Alert Bay. A different arrangement was ordered for Judy and Joseph S., who lived in Courtenay with their seven-year-old son, Cody. She was an ambulance attendant and camp cook who worked out of town during the summer logging season. After they separated, Cody lived with his mother, but stayed with his father whenever Judy was away. A year later, however, Joseph moved in with another woman, and tensions began to mount between Judy and Joseph.

Nick Vlahos If you require assistance in dealing with any litigation matter, please contact Nick Vlahos for information on how we can help you.

The judge said that where both parents provide loving care for their child, who is happy with both parents, and the parents have previously cooperated, they only need a “nudge from the court” to come to an arrangement which will be best for the child. He ordered both parents to have joint responsibility for Cody’s schooling, medical care, etc. But Cody would live with his mother during the week and his father on alternating weekends. During the summer, he’d live three weeks with his mother and three weeks with his father, and he’d spend alternate Christmas and spring break vacations with each parent. Bruce and Karen M., who lived a few minutes apart in New Westminster, had yet a different order. Their twin boys lived with Bruce about 43% of the time, according to his work schedule with the RCMP. The court increased this time by one more day a month. The court also ordered that all holidays were to be shared. One parent would have the twins Eve until 2:00 p.m. Vlahos Christmas on Christmas Day, at which time the other parent would have them until 7:00 p.m. on Boxing Day. On birthdays, the parent whose home they were not living in that day could see or have them from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. “The children should have memories of shared special days,” said the judge. “It will be healthier for them if these days do not emphasize a divided life by being defined in retrospect as separate.” If you and your partner can work out an amicable joint custody and living arrangement with the help of your lawyers, your children will reap the benefits of your mutual love, care and concern for their well-being.

Band piping for support RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Bagpipers are trying to squeeze some support from the community. The Regional District of North Okanagan is asking member jurisdictions if they will provide funds so the Kalamalka Highlanders Pipe Band can rent facilities for practises. “We’re out to events in Armstrong, Lumby, Falkland and Silver Star,” said Don MacLeod, pipe major, of the group’s role as ambassadors at 40 events annually. “We represent the whole North Okanagan.” Norm Crerar Presently, the non-profit society rents the Vernon Recreation Complex auditorium about four times a month from September to May for practises. The fee ranges from $2,800 to $3,200. In comparison, the City of Kamloops provides a pipe band there with $6,000 a year. The Kalamalka Highlanders are suggesting RDNO waive the fees for the recreation complex, provide $4,000 to the band which will then pay for use of the facility or provide $6,000 for rent, uniforms and equipment. There are presently 48 members in the Kalamalka Highlanders and the affiliated Arran Campbell Memorial Youth Pipe Band. “Our members are from every community in the Wayne Lippert North Okanagan,” said Norm Crerar, society president, adding that there are three students from Enderby. RDNO directors have decided that all member jurisdictions should have an opportunity to consider possible funding. “Their membership comes from across the whole regional district,” said director Wayne Lippert, adding that the group’s activities may go beyond the Vernon Recreation Complex. “They may practise in a facility in Lumby or Armstrong.” But some politicians don’t want to give the band the impression that its various financial requests will be fulfilled. “We don’t have to pay everything for them. They can fundraise,” said director Mike Macnabb.

Talbot will seek a fourth term as director for the Falkland/Salmon Valley/Deep Creek/Ranchero area of the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District. “There are some projects I want to see completed like the official community plan in Ranchero and Deep Creek,” he said. “We are also working on a farmers’ advisory panel. I want farmers to be able to make comments when Agricultural Land Reserve applications come forward.” If re-elected, Talbot believes Rene Talbot there are a number of issues CSRD needs to move ahead on. Among them are a new official community plan for Falkland and a study on possibly linking Falkland to Vernon via transit. Talbot, who is retired from the sheet metal business, was first elected as electoral area director in 2002. “I enjoy working with people and people are concerned about the area they live in,” he said, adding that he considers the role of director to be full-time. “There are so many meetings with various agencies and groups.” Nominations for the Nov. 19 civic election close Friday at 4 p.m. Canada’s Most Trusted Mortgage g g Experts p

Councillor supports mayor’s stance — Janice Brown keep pushing them.” The 10 minutes that municipal representatives get to spend with ministers usually just results in some idle chit chat, said Brown. Not so with Hansma. “They say, ‘they have to get up to speed on things,’ but Will says ‘This happened five years ago, or 10 years ago, and we’re not taking no for an answer,’” said Brown. “We only meet for 10 minutes but at the end, they stand up and say ‘Holy s--t.’ We do catch them off guard.” Hansma, Brown, Coun.

Dave Brew and administrator Lynda Shykora met with five provincial ministers during the four-day convention in Vancouver. Grateful for Brown’s comments, Hansma told council they have been promised money on a long talked about project: transition funding for water district. While they didn’t walk out of UBCM with a cheque, Hansma said he was assured the money is there. “We got money for the transition process,” said Hansma. “But that’s the bureaucratic

Free disposal available at area landfills Morning Star Staff

As the crisp autumn air settles over our gardens and landscapes and forces fall yard cleanup, residents have a free option to dispose of leaves and trimmings. The free fall yard and garden waste drop off period runs from Saturday to Nov. 30 at all Regional District of North Okanagan landfills. Trimmings, prunings, leaves, grass, mulch and other organic material less than 20 cm (or approximately eight inches) in diameter originating from residential yard and garden work will be accepted freeof-charge at the Greater Vernon, Armstrong/ Spallumcheen, Lumby, Kingfisher, and Cherryville landfills during this time. “The spring free drop off period was very busy at our facilities. Your patience and cooperation is appreciated during the free drop off period,” said Dale Danallanko, RDNO recycling and facilities operations manager. “Please ensure your load is adequately secured with a tarp or cargo net, follow the signs and directions from facility staff, and be sure to empty all bags and boxes containing yard and garden waste.”

The residential program does not accept rocks, concrete, plastic, and refuse in the landfill yard waste pile. These materials contaminate the pile and make it unsuitable for composting. Only yard and garden waste, selfhauled by residents, is permitted. The fee for yard and garden waste at all RDNO landfills during the remainder of the year is $20 per metric tonne (two cents per kilogram). For the record The Morning Star would like to correct an error in a recent article about open burning dates for the

region. Burn season within the RDNO runs from Oct. 31 to April 30 and is open to those who obtain a burning

permit. The previous twoweek fall and six-week spring burn period is no longer in effect.

One Spallumcheen councillor praised the efforts of the township’s mayor’s actions during the Union of British Columbia Municipalities convention in Vancouver. Janice Brown credited Will Hansma for being tough on provincial ministers and their respective staffs when it came time to reminding them about past funding promises. “I think it’s important for people to realize when we go to these meetings, we have all the background, we’re all precise and prepared, and Will does the talking,” said Brown. “He bangs things out, we get new ministers, and nobody can remember anything for past meetings.

In meetings with the transportation ministry, Hansma asked for consideration of infrastructure cash to help with maintaining secondary roads, devolved to municipalities by the province. He also voiced concern – again – to the Ministry of Agriculture over the paltry $190,000 a year given to the Agricultural Land Commission for its yearly budget. “We had the same talk last year,” said Hansma. “The ALC doesn’t have the level of support required from the province to deal with all of the applications that come forward to them.”

LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR

Chilliwack goalie Mitch Gillam leaves his net to smother Viper Alex Hagen’s scoring attempt as defenceman Shay Laurent of the Chiefs steps in for support Friday night at Wesbild Centre.

Retro jerseys suit Vipers just fine KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

It was Retro Night Friday as the Vipers showed respect for the great Vernon Lakers teams of the 1980s by wearing snazzy orange and blue pro-style jerseys. A few fans brought out their old Laker duds in support and the Vipers did their best Dave Oliver, Duane Dennis and Jason Marshall impersonations in a 4-1 victory over the Chilliwack Chiefs. Adam Tambellini, first star Darren Nowick, third star Colton Sparrow and Alex Hagen, with his first B.C. Hockey League snipe, scored for the 6-0 Vipers. Josh Hansen replied for the Chiefs (2-1), who were known as the Quesnel Millionaires last season. Retro Night brought back memories for Chilliwack head coach Harvey Smyl, the dean of BCHL bench bosses. “I loved their uniforms,” smiled Smyl.

“It brought back some old times from my New Westminster (Royals) days which was many years ago, It’s good to come back to the Junior A hockey capital of the world.” The Chiefs, who faced Vernon in the BCHL championship four times in five years in the late ‘90s, had eight Millionaires join the re-born franchise in the Fraser Valley. “We hit a bump tonight,” said Smyl. “I didn’t think we played very well. We had quite a few passengers out there. It’s certainly not something we wanna be out. We wanna be about work ethic and compete, those times of things, and have everybody doing it.” The Vipers carried the majority of play, especially in the first period when they outshot the Chiefs 12-5. “They move pretty well; they’re a quick team, but they couldn’t match us in the speed category and we just kept pucks

behind them and went after them all game,” said Sparrow, who had a few great scoring chances and somehow found a mico-sized hole over rookie netminder Mitch Gillam’s left shoulder for the goal of the night, coming out of the corner on a sharp angle. “That (goal) felt pretty good,” said Sparrow, perhaps extra stoked since a few U.S. college scouts were in the crowd of 1,467 at Wesbild Centre. “Obviously, we needed some insurance there so it was nice to get that one.” Nowick, who was stoned by Gillam’s glove hand from four feet with 6:57 left in the first period, skated miles both ways and lost control of the puck after taking a breakaway feed coming out of the penalty box late in the second period. He was rewarded with a goal shortly after when he tapped in a loose puck at the side of the crease to make it 2-0 Vipers.

“With Nowy, you’re gonna get the same thing from him every night,” said Sparrow. “That’s just how he is. He’s a hard-working guy who’s relentless.” Nowick, who has four goals, ignited Vernon’s first line with Mike Zalewski, who shielded the puck down low like he invented the rubber disc, and shifty John Knisley. “The whole team was clicking and we pretty much outworked them and got the W,” said Nowick, greeted by a college birddog outside the Viper dressing room. “It was nice with everyone putting the puck in the net. We were just too fast for their dee down low and we made them pay for it.” Viper goalie Kirby Halcrow, back from sick bay, looked far better than Roberto Luongo when he calmly went down and stopped Trevor Hills on a penalty shot early in the second period. The Vipers played the Cents Saturday night in Merritt.

I think that’s where they have to be definitely policed a certain way by the players and not just the referees.” Fighting has dropped considerably in the BCHL, with tough rules preventing the late-minute scraps which added another half hour to the games. For the record, there were 850 regularseason fights and 100 concussions in the Western League last year. Suspensions for head shots were up and thus the high number of concussions. The WHL will follow the NHL’s lead on tougher rules.

Kashuba, Burns boost Austrian Athletics KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Vernon’s Jonny Kashuba and David Burns are tying to win the Austrian version of the World Series with some Major League-type numbers. Kashuba, 26, and Burns, 37, boosted the AttnangPuccheim Athletics to the Austrian Baseball League pennant while setting a circuit record for wins in a season with 24. Kashuba led the Athletics in most offensive categories with a batting average of .372, 28 runs batted in, and a league-leading eight home runs. Kashuba also won the league gold glove for his defensive play at shortstop. Burns, last year’s playoff MVP, batted a solid .290 and had three dingers, 19 RBI and a team-high eight doubles. Burns, the Athletics’ player-manager, marvelled at Kashuba’s late-season explosion where he smacked five homers in six games and followed up with four taters in four playoff tilts. “This is unheard of in this league where in a 28-game season, some U.S. college players or former U.S. semi pro players that play here will maybe hit eight to 10 at the most,” said Burns, a first baseman. The Athletics also boast the league’s top pitching staff led by Josh Castanza (1.59 earned run average) out of Florida, and the best Austrian pitcher, Walter Strasser, (1.98 ERA). Both pitchers reach levels of 86-88 miles an hour. The Athletics are preparing for the championships after defeating the Schwaz Tigers 3-1 in the best-of-five semifinal. After splitting the open-

ing weekend, the A’s rode the bats of Burns and Kashuba last weekend by winning Game 3 (16-4) and Game 4 (10-0) to advance to the final. In Game 3, the 5-foot-11, 195-pound Kashuba belted two of his four home runs in the series while Burns went 2-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI. In the second game, Kashuba smacked his third homer of the day off the Tigers’ Californian starter while Burns went 2-for-3. The A’s began the championship series with two games Saturday, in Vienna against the Vienna Metrostars, a team that has won the most titles in the history of the ABL. The remainder of the best-of-five final series goes next weekend at the A’s Garden in AttnangPuchheim, a city of nearly 10,000. “The series is dubbed the Young Stars vs the Old Stars and the Metrostars team is comprised mostly of a young talented nucleus of players aged 19-23, while the A’s are a more veteran team with almost all of the players in their late 20s and early 30s,” said Burns, a 6-foot-6, 220-pounder. Attnang was founded by Bavarian seddlers in the late eighth century. The town of Puchheim is documented the first time in 1135, Attnang about 100 years later in 1242. In 1912 the community changed its name from Puchheim to Attnang-Puchheim to acknowledge this growing part of the town. Anyone interested in viewing Games 3-5 online can visit the A’s website at: www.athleticsbaseball.at. The series can also be followed in English on www. mister-baseball.com.

Jays’ Lawrie to address Coyotes Morning Star Staff

Have breakfast and talk baseball with rising Toronto Blue Jays’ star Brett Lawrie while boosting the Okanagan College athletics department. That’s the idea behind the Coyotes fundraiser, Thursday, Oct. 27 from 7-9 a.m. at the Coast Capri Hotel.

Lawrie, a dynamic third baseman from Langley, exploded onto the Major League scene earlier this year. “His early success provides a great example to other young B.C. athletes and is a reminder of the rewards that come with hard work and dedication,” said Okanagan College athletic direc-

tor Rob Johnson. Tickets to the Coyotes fundraising breakfast are available at a cost of $100 per person or $750 for a table of eight. Contact the athletics office at 762-5445 (ext. 4754) to reserve your tickets. West Coast Authentic Memorabilia is a major sponsos of the breakfast.

Stevenson Mechanical Blues’ Aaron Botterill stays close as Bannister Chev Heat’s Brandon Lehoux attempts to gain control of the puck in Pee Wee House hockey action Sunday at Civic Arena. Cody Webb, Braden Cooper and Nick Mitchell scored as the Blues won 3-2. Sam Frisby scored twice for the Heat.

Midgets tie up Seafair Morning Star Staff

Cody Hendrickson scored with just over a minute to play as the Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers salvaged a 4-4 with the host team at the ninth annual Seafair Icebreaker Midget Hockey Tournament Friday night in Richmond. Hendrickson recently joined the Vipers after being with the KIJHL Revelstoke Grizzlies. Game MVP and Viper rookie Logan Geefs passed it out front from behind the net to set up the tying marker, with veteran centre Trevor Pickett also

drawing an assist. Forward Justin Mitchell got the Tier1 Vipers on the board in the first period when he roofed one past the Seafair goalie, with Kyle Clark and Patrick Dove getting the assists. Pickett hit the back of the net, assisted by Curtis Sexsmith, with four seconds left in the period to make it 2-1 Vipers after 20 minutes. Seafair scored twice on goalie Evan Campagnolo in the second period before Braydon Sophonow, from Sexsmith, tied it up going into the final frame.

Seafair scored a powerplay marker halfway though the third period to take the lead before Hendrickson’s dramatic tying goal. The Vipers played North Shore Winter Club and Anchorage, Alaska Saturday with the playoffs slated to start Sunday.

The Fulton Maroons brushed back the Valleyview Vikings 20-6 in Southern Interior High School Football League play Friday night in Kamloops. Kyle Richardson scored on a 28-yard run, while Clayton Mottus caught a four-yard touchdown reception from Richardson. The other Fulton TD came on a two-yard ramble by Richardson. Richardson also took the ball to the house for a two-point convert as Fulton improved to 2-1 in the senior AA league. The VSS Panthers, coached by Sean Smith, were scheduled to battle the NorKam Saints in Kamloops, but the game was postponed due to numerous injuries on the Saints’ roster. Richardson, meanwhile, carried the ball 10 times for 69 times, while Matt Parlee racked up 35 yards on eight touches and Mikey Ochoa recorded seven carries for 20 yards. Richardson completed nine of 15 passes for 140 yards with one interception. Mottus finished with two catches for 29 yards, while Ochoa hauled in two aerials for 33 yards, Clark Richardson made two catches for 26 yards and Marshall Kazemir had one 31-yarder. On defence, Lucas Hofer led the Maroons with a dozen tackles, followed by Kyle Richardson with nine, Mark Wagner with six and Wes Liefke with three. Cody Lutes supplied one sack, while Adam Woods earned one pick and Devon Harris and Matt Eso produced fumble recoveries. “This was a good win for our club,” said Fulton head coach Mike Scheller. “The game was tight and hard fought. Valleyview is a tough and physical team to play against, and as a coaching staff, we are happy with the way the boys accepted the challenge. “We got a couple of turnovers early, deep in Viking territory, and we were opportunistic enough to score points. We got a 14-0 first-quarter lead, and the rest of the game was very even after that. We scored in the third

It’s Thanksgiving and I would like to pass on an important reminder concerning our pets. Our feasts of turkey, ham and other delicious foods are the highlight of the holiday weekend. We must remember that, while our family feasts, our pets should not do the same.

Offering pets fatty leftovers or sweets from these dinners is a recipe for a digestive upset, or a more serious ailment such as pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas). Signs to watch for include loss of appetite, dry heaves, vomiting and diarrhea. If you witness these signs your pet should be seen by a Veterinarian.

He worked very hard all week to improve his play at QB, and he played great. His dedication was awesome to watch all week. As a linebacker, he made several key stops versus Valleyview’s option offence. DT Devon Harris was instrumental in the first turnovers of the game, and he was very solid.”

The outdoor community rink at Head of the Lake is in need of upgrades to continue providing a safe place for kids to play. Residents can help by voting at http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf11906.

Rink gives kids a sporting chance JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Westside residents need the community’s support to continue providing a healthy, safe and inviting area for local youth to play sports and interact. The volunteer-run, outdoor community rink at Head of the Lake Road is in need of some major upgrades. “It’s in serious need of fixing because the boards on the sides are rotting,” said Martie Louis, with the Okanagan Dreammakers Society. Seating, a place for kids to hang their skates, resurfacing the concrete and place to house the recent donation of a Zamboni are also needed, therefore Louis estimates the upgrades will cost between $8,000 and $10,000. The Dreammakers has applied to the Aviva Community Fund, a national competition where a total of $1 million will be awarded to the most popular ideas. Ideas will be chosen by Canadians through online voting. To vote for the Head of the Lake project visit http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ ideas/acf11906. There are three rounds of voting, with the first wrapping up Oct. 19. The final winners will be announced Jan. 25, 2012. The neighbourhood rink is a popular spot for all ages to play, or watch hockey. “It’s not one generation that’s using it, it’s all of them,” said Louis. “We have little guys that come

out and use it right up to the older guys.” Eventually, the community would like to add onto the rink, to create a wider range of activities. “Our vision is to have a little more than just a skating rink,” said Louis. “To have something for more year-round use.”

Winter’s not that far off so it’s time to get ready for skiing. The Vernon Ski Club will host the 43rd annual Vernon Ski and Snowboard Swap Saturday starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Vernon Recreation Complex. ‘If you are looking for great deals on alpine ski, snowboard or cross country gear, the annual swap is the place to find it,” said Troy Assaly, a club volunteer. “There are boots, clothing and equipment, new and recycled, all at great prices.” Every year, the swap brings together up to 15 retailers from throughout the Okanagan, Kootenays and Lower Mainland. “They can be expected to bring great deals on new and used equipment and clothing,” said Assaly. “If it’s time to retire some of you own clothing or equipment, the ski swap takes your consignment items and sells them for you.” If you have equipment to sell, bring it to the Vernon Recreation Complex Oct. 14 between 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. Consignment tickets are $2 per item. During the swap, information booths for the Vernon Ski Club, Silver Star Adaptive Snow Sports and the Canadian Ski Patrollers will also be on site. For more information, go to www.VernonSkiClub. ca.

e are in a new business age not only in Vernon but in all of Canada with the emergence of the baby boomers turning 65 in 2011. More than 650,000 British Columbians are 65 or older and this vibrant group not only has a lot of purchasing power but also the time to shop. If you include those over 45 as well as those over 65, sometimes called Zoomers, it changes demographics considerably, and Zoomers then statistically encompass a vast group of 14.5 million people, accounting for 44 per cent of the population and controlling more than 77 per cent of all Canadian wealth, according to 50Plus. com, a website for seniors. This target market group presents a whole new set of challenges for business but also presents

Boomers turn 65 a whole new set of opportunities. To take advantage of this demographic bonanza, businesses will have to look at changing their marketing strategies to have more appeal for seniors. According Pat Black to 50Plus. com, 58 per cent of all cars in 2008 were sold to older Canadians and they represented 73 per cent of households with $100,000 incomes and enjoyed 55 per cent of all vacations in that year. They also purchased 80 per cent of all health care products in that year. Stats Canada tells us they represented 83 per cent of households with savings or securities over $500,000. The business possibilities for this market are very rich and to assist businesses in developing these new marketing opportunities, the provincial government has published a booklet called Creating an Age-Friendly Business in BC that is available through their website at www.SeniorsBC.ca and outlines how to better serve older customers. Another stat that must be considered given this new target market is the fact that according to Stats Canada about 40 per cent of all Canadians over 65 have disability issues and this will have to be addressed if any business wants to capture their share of this lucrative market. Change has already occurred in many establishments to assist seniors with physical challenges. Not only does Wal-Mart have scooters in the store but so does Superstore and Save-On Foods. Unfortunately the location of these scooters at Superstore leaves a lot to be desired as they are far away from the

entrances. However Superstore does deserve kudos for its recently redesigned entrance for pedestrians and bus riders so that they now have a safe, walkable pathway to the store. This is a great example that should be followed by all the large stores. Bus shelters are also needed as many older adults have opted to use local transit over cars. The Village Green Centre’s interior is another example of a senior-friendly business with well-lit, smooth, easy walking areas, frequent seating areas, and most stores have aisles wide enough to accommodate scooters and walkers. Outdoor pedestrian access needs to be worked on, however, as well as scooter access to the mall. Some new cinemas where access is miles away from parking and the actual viewing areas are miles away from the entrances, with stairs to climb before you have a decent seat, do not meet the needs of seniors with mobility issues and will forfeit this valuable market segment. Other businesses that foster access, safety, comfort, visibility, clarity and respect will be the winners in this new age of marketing. Did you know that if you are receiving Canada Pension Plan Disability or if you are a senior receiving GIS you are entitled to a 75 per cent discount for many programs provided by Greater Vernon Recreation Services, among them, public swim, weight room, drop-in gym classes and Aquafit programs. To qualify, all you need to do is provide them with a CPPD or GIS standard benefit letter of confirmation from Service Canada (1-800- 277-9914) and proof of identification.

News A local centre striving to create smiles needs the community’s help. The Community Dental Access Centre Society is in the process of renovating rental space at 3107C 31st Avenue for a lowincome clinic. The centre has applied to the Aviva Community Fund, a national competition where a total of $1 million will be awarded to the most popular ideas, chosen by Canadians, that will create positive change in their communities. You can help create smiles in your community by voting for them at http://www. avivacommunityfund. org/ideas/acf10904. The process has three rounds with the top 30 ideas of each round moving on to the semi-finals. The first round of voting ends Oct. 19 and you can vote everyday. “We need your help. Please help us open the clinic,” said Amber Peters, a Lumby resident who has become the poster child for CDAC. Peters shares her story of the pain of not being able to smile in the centre’s video submission. “I was made fun of numerous times,” she said, recalling how her tooth decay prompted others to react. “What’s wrong with your teeth? Don’t you know how to brush them?” Financial barriers prevented Peters from accessing proper dental treatment all her life, which in turn caused other health issues. But thanks to the Community Dental Access Centre Society, along with the generosity of a local dentist and community donations, Peters is now proudly smiling and enjoying a healthier life. “The community pulled together to pay for my dentures and I’m so grateful for that,” said the young mother of two who is

by the time they reach Kindergarten. Therefore with more than 300 people on the waiting list, the clinic is hoping to open this year. The four-chair, volunteerrun space will have capacity for 3,000 client visits annually and will provide fillings, root canals, urgent treatment, preventa-

tive care and more. “This initiative is to create access to dental care for the lowincome families,” said Dominique Berard, CDAC president. To date, the clinic has raised $300,000 of the $450,000 needed to open the clinic. For more information, visit www.communitydentalaccess.ca.

Susan Mann is doing what she can to ensure young girls don’t have their childhoods stolen from them CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

S

usan Mann was spending her last few days in Nepal after a three-month stay with Medical Mercy Canada when she went into a book store in Thamel, the tourist area of Kathmandu. She came out with Sold by Patricia McCormick, about how girls are sold by their families and taken to brothels in India. “The pimps come to the remote villages and some of the fathers, often those who are alcoholics, will sell girls as young as seven or eight. The parents are told that the girls are going to work for wealthy families and will send money home. In reality, these virginal children are then re-sold to brothels in India. Men come from all over the world to use them,� said Mann. The girls are beaten and starved and don’t speak the language where they are. They are there for life, which can be short as they get HIV, other sexually transmitted diseases, and have children too young. Mann was appalled by what she read and made up her mind to visit Maiti Nepal, an agency based in Kathmandu which helps the rescued girls. There is an organization in India where men volunteer to visit the girls in the brothels and gain their trust by not having sex with them, then escape and return the girls to Nepal. If they are caught by the brothel owners, both are killed. Maiti Nepal, which operates in Kathmandu in a modern building constructed by a German couple in memory of their young daughter, rehabilitates the girls through medical treatment and education. Maiti Nepal trains some of the young women to work as border guards and they can spot the men who try to cross the border to India with girls without papers and see that the girls are returned home. Maiti Nepal was born out of a crusade to protect Nepali girls and women from crimes like domestic violence, trafficking for flesh trade, child prostitution, child

Susan Mann is taking comfort dolls knitted by local women to Maiti Nepal, a shelter for girls who are rescued from brothels and given medical treatment, counselling and education. labor and various forms of exploitation and torture. A group of socially committed professionals like teachers, journalists and social workers together formed Maiti Nepal in 1993 to fight against all the

social evils inflicted upon the female population. Most of all, its special focus has always been on preventing trafficking for forced prostitution, rescuing flesh trade victims and rehabilitating them. This

social organization also actively works to find justice for the victimized lot of girls and women by engaging in criminal investigation and waging legal battles against the criminals. It has highlighted the trafficking issue with its strong advocacy from the local to national and international levels. Mann met Anuradha Koriala, the founder of Maiti Nepal and learned more about its work. She intends to go there to volunteer at some time in the future and when she got back to Canada earlier this year, she talked to her friends, who also read the book and wanted to help. They are making Comfort Dolls, from a pattern originally made by ICross Canada, for dolls to be given to children in Africa. Heather Hackman, Janet Armstrong’s knitting group, Kelli Rose of the Nee Nee Yarn Shop in Falkland and her customers, and other friends made dolls for Mann to take to Maiti Nepal on her next trip starting Oct. 13. Mann will also be taking monetary donations to Maiti Nepal. Mann has volunteered in Nepal with Medical Mercy Canada, a registered, nongovernment charitable organization founded in 1991 by Dr. Myron Semkuley and his wife, Elaine, a pharmacist, and based in Calgary. “Last year, I volunteered at a health camp and then lived with a family in the remote mountains and had a health camp there,� said Mann, a registered nurse and advanced practitioner. “It is truly subsistence living. Many of the children do not go to school and they have no toys. For the girls who are rescued from forced prostitution having the doll may be the first thing they have ever that is their own and it is something very special for them.� Mann and her family supported a girl from a rural area to go to university to be a computer programmer and she now works in a bank in Kathmandu. This was done in memory of Mann’s daughter, who died in a car accident 12 years ago, just as she was going to enter university. “I am going to do more to help girls with education. It costs only $15 a month for a girl to go to school. School ends after 10 years and the cost for everything for university for four years is $3,000. There is so much to be done,� she said. Mann is going back to Nepal to volunteer with Medical Mercy Canada for three months at health camps in the Terai area, the jungle area on the border with India.

A guided journey through grief CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Grief is inevitable, the way through it is a choice. The North Okanagan Hospice Society has been helping area residents with individual grief counseling and group sessions for more than 25 years. The next session of the well-attended Finding My Way, Coping with Grief group starts Oct. 19. Group co-facilitator Barbara Anderson has been a volunteer with the grief programs for 15 years. “I’ve been blessed in all the people I’ve met. They have taught me so much. During that time I experienced the loss of my parents, my husband and friends. Each grief is different,” she said. “When you’re grieving, your thoughts, feelings, behaviour, physical symptoms and spiritual outlook change and it can frighten you and make you feel like you are going crazy. The groups are a safe place to share and feel supported and understood. But people are also welcome to attend and not talk, just listen and learn. It’s not all sadness, we find we can laugh together as well.” While people might think they should not laugh when they have lost a loved one, it can be an important way to relieve stress. “It’s healthy to laugh. Another thing that people can learn is how to talk to friends who will talk to you about everything else but your loss of a loved one. Some people find that the second year after a loss can be more difficult than the first because people think you should somehow be over it,” said Ruth Edwards, Hospice Society executive director. The grief group covers these issues and others, like anniversary dates, going through personal possessions, writing letters to the loved one and dealing with physical and mental symptoms. Each session has an educational component and a sharing time. “The group is about being truly heard. I have found that deep inside, every human being has an inner wisdom. It takes courage to come to the group but it is a way to connect with yourself and what is best for you,” said Anderson. “The loss of a loved one can bring up all the other losses in our lives, even those that are smaller. We can deal with

CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR

Barbara Anderson, co-facilitator of the Finding My Way, Coping with Grief group, sometimes brings her comforting dog, Katie, to the sessions. The next group starts Oct. 19. our little losses every day by acknowledging them, and going on with life. Of course, it is much more difficult and takes more time with a big loss but as we share our stories, we learn to be grateful for the people who have been a part of our lives. “The greatest gift the grief group gives is for people to know that what they are experiencing is normal, they are not crazy and they are not alone. It will never be the same but they will never lose their memories.”

Chances are you don’t have oral cancer. But wouldn’t it be nice to be sure?

We pride ourselves on relaxed professionalism.

Anderson and Edwards both stressed the need for people to follow their own timetables for grief and to understand that there is no right or wrong way to grieve. Finding My Way, Coping with Grief runs Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 19 to Dec. 7 (eight sessions). The cost is $50 for materials but the fee is waived in cases of need. Space is limited.

Parents seek daycare solution KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff

As the parent of a child with a disability, Trista Zettergreen knows the difficulty of finding appropriate after-school care. But rather than continue to search for child care for her son, Andrew, Zettergreen and her partner, Jeff Teale, are taking a proactive approach by opening their own daycare that will specialize in caring for children from ages 12 to 18. “We are a new business that will be specializing in helping parents who have a special needs child at home and are in need of daycare facilities,” said Zettergreen. “At this point, we are asking

for input from parents, grandparents or family members who have a child with disabilities that are finding it hard to keep their child occupied and who are in need of some afterschool child care while they are working.” When Zettergreen and Andrew, 12, lived in Salmon Arm, she had daycare in place. But since moving to Vernon in April, she’s found it a challenge. “It’s been a nightmare,” she said. Teale, who is a trained care aide, has stepped in and is providing after-school care for Andrew, who is in Grade 6 at Silver Star elementary school. The couple is busy

exploring options for child care space for their new business, Heart to Heart Services, as well as seeing what kind of interest there may be in such a facility. “We’ve spoken to agencies such as NOYFSS (North Okanagan youth and Family Services Society) and NONA and they have all been very supportive of our idea,” said Teale. He and Zettergreen hope to be able to offer specialized care in helping with homework, working on socialization skills, aiding in teaching positive personal hygiene skills, and a variety of life skills such as cooking, cleaning and teaching the value of money.

There will be a wide range of outings planned, including activities such as bowling, swimming lessons, weekly trips to the grocery store, park outings depending on weather and recreational activities. “Andrew has been very enthusiastic and is making lots of suggestions for field trips and outings,” said Zettergreen. “We are encouraging the public to share their input and let us know if you know someone who could benefit from our services and know of different activities that we could be doing to help better assist youth with disabilities.” For more informa-

tion on Heart to Heart Services, please call Zettergreen and Teale at 1-778-475-5460 by cell at 250-550-5829 or e-mail tristaandjeff@ rocketmail.com. “We look forward to hearing more input on ways to better asisst us in opening the daycare, so please feel free to contact us,” said Zettergreen.

EMR is everywhere

Q

What is EMR? A. ElectroMagnetic Radiation is all around us in various forms, from that emanating from our sun as ultraviolet rays that manage to get through our atmosphere and can cause a nasty sunburn or worse if over-exposed, to low power infrared rays that we use to switch TV channels or open a garage door, to the radio frequency waves that abound today as people Tweet, text, browse and talk on various handheld wireless devices, Vernon PC Users’ Club and to the video frequency waves that are relayed by artificial satellites to millions of pizza-sized receiver dishes around the world. I wonder what would happen if there was a master EMR switch on a wall and someone turned it to OFF? Back in 1901 when signals from a highpower transmitter located in Cornwall, England were reported to have been received 3,500 kilometers away across the Atlantic by Marconi at a receiving station on the Newfoundland coast, it wouldn’t have mattered a hill of beans, except to Marconi and his buddies, if the hypothetical EMR switch had been thrown. It’s not difficult to imagine what would happen today: absolute chaos. Our kids would be forced to abandon their iPods and

the like and actually have face-to-face communication with their friends. Millions would perhaps pick up a book or a freshly recharged Kindle and read it as opposed to watching CSI or Oprah. More millions would get off their butts and rather than heading for the fridge for a snack or a beer between commercials would actually go outside and do something healthy and/or creative not requiring EMR. It’s unlikely such a thing would happen short of an apocalyptic solar event that would destroy our ionosphere and completely shut down most forms of EMR. No doubt such an occurrence would have some nasty side effects upon life on earth, but it would be fun to watch for a while. If we could only find a less destructive means — maybe an EMR dimmer switch that could selectively turn off certain annoying forms of EMR apps while giving users a small electromagnetic jolt. The next meeting of the Vernon PC Users’ Club is Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Schubert Centre in the cafeteria. Call Betty at 542-7024 or Olive at 542-8490 for more information.

After winning the Kraft $25,000.00 challenge this summer, Armstrong has done it again, this time to support our local health initiatives. At the end of May an anonymous donor offered the Haugen Community Healthcare Society at Armstrong a $25,000.00 donation if the society could match the funds. The Society decided to try to do this by the end of September, and thanks to the people of Armstrong and Spallumcheen, the goal has been reached. To date more than $27,000.00 has been received. This is such a heartening endorsement of the Society’s efforts to guarantee local access to quality health care which the Haugen Medical Group is certainly providing. • Anonymous • Dwight Johnson • Ian Cowen • Robert Johnson • Jessie Ann & Len Gamble • Jannette Heyman • Joanne & Leonard Lemke • Jack & Dawn Jamieson • Sharon Wray • Janet & John Irving • Marilyn & Don Moor • Wayne Ashton • Ethel & Gerald Freeman • Helen & Ken Barker • Chris Pieper • Glen Stone • Susan Jamieson • Karen & George Wilkinson • Penny & Robert Taylor • Wilma Amberg • Jill & Harvey De la Salle • Janet & Fred McCullough

Meet bad weather with good sense. It’s that time of year again. It’s getting dark early, it’s raining more often and foggy patches are here, there and sometimes everywhere. All of which negatively affect driving conditions. But paying attention to the changing weather and using a little seasonal road sense, helps prevent crashes and injuries that could negatively affect your auto insurance rates.

According to ICBC, this time change is known to be followed by an increase in the number of crashes and injuries on B.C. roads.

Practice safe driving in adverse weather and remember what to expect in the days ahead. AUTO When driving on INSURANCE WITH wet roads after a prolonged dry SANDY MACPHERSON spell, oil on the road tends to rise to the surface, making for extra slippery conditions, so be extra cautious and slow down. Roads that are slick with rain can cause cars to hydroplane if they are travelling too fast and need to brake suddenly. But no matter how carefully you drive, it’s impossible to avoid a crash if you can’t see the road ahead. Remember to change your windshield wipers regularly, before their effectiveness is reduced.

Most important of all, Monday October 31 is when thousands of little ghosts and goblins will be out swarming our streets and neighbourhoods in search of Halloween tricks and treats. Most will be too young and excited to think about road safety and the earlier onset of darkness. Though most children are accompanied by adults, kids are unpredictable, and it’s up to drivers to stay alert for any that may dart into traffic. Being aware of the impending weather and driving accordingly will enhance the safety of all road users during the change of seasons. A change of season may also mean a change in your auto insurance needs. Visit your local BCAA Sales Centre to ensure you are prepared with the right coverage for the coming months.

Dance ‘climbs’ to new heights Morning Star Staff

The north face of Switzerland’s Eiger Mountain, with its snow-filled cracks resembling a spider’s legs, is a landmark for the men and women who dare to climb it. Heinrich Harrer was among those who first successfully ascended the spider in 1938. Harrer went on to chronicle the many failed attempts and the first successful climb in his book, The White Spider. Choreographer Jennifer Mascall draws inspiration from Harrer’s book, seeking to honour the death-defying maneuvers, impossible decisions, and enormous strength enacted while climbing the north face. The White Spider, coming to the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, is an innovative blend of traditional dance moves and mountain climbing athletics. Mascall Dance’s production of The White Spider is the first show in the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society’s 2011/2012 Dance Series. Five dancers climb, rappel and dance the walls and ceiling of a set that shifts and changes like the abstract face of a mountain. This production is a fusion of dance, sculptural installation, site-specific musical composition and mountaineering. Mascall has years of experience creating new imaginative choreography. Book lovers and dancers alike can connect with The White Spider with its unpredictable style, working with a form of abstract storytelling that verbally references Harrer’s narrative, but always emphasizing the movement first. There will be a behind-the-scenes meetand-greet with a demonstration of the rigging with the choreographer and some of the performers at 1 p.m. Saturday. A master class with Jennifer Mascall is also offered to local dance students on Friday at 6 p.m. Master class admission is $20 and includes a ticket to the performance. For more information or to sign up for the meet-and-greet or master class, please contact Karina, the centre’s dance outreach coordinator, at 250-542-9355. The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous support: Valley Medical Labs, The Morning Star, the Okanagan Advertiser, North of 50 Magazine, the Department of Canadian Heritage, the British Columbia Arts Council, the Regional District of the North Okanagan, Made in BC Dance On Tour, and the Sustainable Environment Network Society.

Dancers from Mascall Dance in their production of The White Spider, on stage Saturday at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. ■■■ Jennifer Mascall’s exuberantly prolific performance career began as an improviser and rapidly received international attention. Primary influences include Laban, Alexander, Cunningham, Paxton, T’ai Chi, New Music, and more recently Putnam and Bainbridge Cohen. Harrer used this name for the title of his book about his successful climb, Die Weisse Spinne (translated into English as The White Spider: The Classic Account of the Ascent of the Eiger). During the first successful ascent, the four men were caught in an avalanche as

they climbed the Spider, but all had enough strength to resist being swept off the face. As an emerging choreographer, Mascall was characterized as a maverick, a visionary, a radical re-visionary and “the enfant terrible of Canadian dance.” Mascall’s work has consistently fulfilled this promise, defying assumptions, intensely fascinated with body research. Works such as The Shostakovich, and The Light At The End Of The Tunnel May Be Another Train Coming Toward You, I’ll Leave The Back Door Open and Housewerk — all characteristically inventive, insightful,

and witty — provoke (re) consideration of the relationship of movement to meaning. Other works, The Brutal Telling, WhaT,?, Cathedral, and Make A Dance, consider equally the relationship of words to movement to meaning. Mascall Dance presents The White Spider, Saturday, Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. For tickets contact the Ticket Seller at 549-SHOW (7469). Tickets are $30 adult; $27 senior; $25 student; $5 eyeGO. Discounts are available for members of Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society.

Capsule Comments with

TOM NOLAN When your doctor prescribes a new medication for you, it is a good idea to ask if it replaces another medication you are already taking. This is especially important when being discharged from hospital and your regular doctor didn’t prescribe your discharge medication orders. Back in the 1970s, a drug combination came on the market contained a penicillin and another drug that protected the ďŹ rst drug from inactivation. This second drug was sort of “riding shotgunâ€? to protect the main one. It was a clever idea and after 30 years, this drug combination is still used by doctors today to ďŹ ght infections. The long term effects of smoking while pregnant can affect the life of the mother but also the future of the child. The child will be a greater risk of heart attacks and strokes later in life. Smoking while pregnant is also lined to other childhood problems including behavioural and neurological problems as well as SIDS. Speaking of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), this risk can be reduced by not smoking, having the child in the same room as the parents for the ďŹ rst six months (not the same bed!) and having the child sleep on its back. Breast feeding is also protective against SIDS. Take the team approach with medications. Medications work best when you, your physician and your pharmacist share information. We’d be happy to be on your team.

BUSINESS BRIEFS Heaton hosting photo contest Heaton Place, Armstrong’s newest retirement community, is holding a photography contest to find the best pictures taken in the North Okanagan. Professionals and amateurs are encouraged to submit their photos in each of the contest’s three categories: people (individuals from all walks of life); nature (animals, plants, landscapes and geological or climatological features); and places and things (cities, buildings and other man-made creations). Photos will be narrowed down to a group of finalists by Heaton Place staff, and then contest judges will select a winner in each category and a grand prize winner. Category winners will each receive $100 and the overall winner gets $500. Select photos will also be posted to the Heaton Place Facebook page, and the photo that gets the most ‘Likes’ will be crowned Peoples’ Choice and earn $100. For photographers wishing to see their photos publicly displayed, Heaton Place staff will award a number of honourable mentions that will be printed and displayed at the retirement community as well as receive a $50 cash prize. “The North Okanagan is a place of exceptional beauty, so we are really excited to see the photos that get submitted for this contest. We know there is a lot of talent out there and we are ready to be blown away,” said Alex Miller, a Heaton Place spokesperson. Full contest rules and details can be found at www.armstrongretirement.com.

Deiter departs from Okanagan Spirits Frank Deiter will likely raise a glass as he bids adieu to Okanagan Spirits. Deiter, who founded the fruit distillation company in 2004, announced his resignation as president and master distiller to pursue other interests in the craft distilling industry, both as an independent consultant and instructor. He will also take on a role as the North American representative for Mueller Pot Stills, one of the leading pot still manufacturers in his native Germany. Deiter also plans to introduce another new venture to the public this fall – The Mobile Juice Factory. This mobile fruit processing plant will provide a service to orchards and the public by turning their own fruit into juice using a sealed bag-ina-box concept. Deiter is planning to host a Juice-fest at the Army, Navy, Airforce Veterans club, Sunday afternoon on Oct. 23. “This is another initiative designed to encourage local trade and establishing another link in the value chain of agricultural products here in the Okanagan,” said Deiter. Meanwhile, Okanagan Spirits will continue in the same location with its well established line of liqueurs, brandies and other fruit spirits. SALES

Towne Cinema goes digital Morning Star Staff

With movie theatres all over Canada converting to digital projection, the demise of regular 35mm film prints is anticipated within 18 months. It left Gerry Sellars, owner of Vernon Towne Cinema, with a big decision – whether to hold out as long as possible using existing technology, or re-equip his projection booth with the latest in digital technology. Sellars’ choices were, either invest $100,000 in an entirely new projection system, with the inevitable steep learning curve, or consider closing the theatre. Already, the Technicolor film laboratory in Vancouver had ceased making film prints and the film handling warehouses in Vancouver are closing their doors. One major factor in Sellars’ decision was his connection with Shawn Greek, a technician with Calgarybased Maximum Project Management. An expert in

First with the cash outlay, and then dealing with problems encountered with importing the digital server from the U.S.,” said Sellars. Upon his arrival, Greek was pleased to discover the theatre’s projection booth was considerably larger — Gerry than most. The extra room has allowed Sellars to preserve the vintage projection equipment and still have enough space for the new system. “I felt it was important to preserve the historic projection room while still providing a completely modern movie viewing experience for our patrons,” said Sellars. It also allowed Sellars to run

The new Christie digital projection system is designed to project movies from a special hard drive shipped directly from the distributor. Sellars decided to also purchase a Geffen Pro Digital scaler which allows him to run DVDs on the big screen, giving any DVD presentation the big screen treatment. It means he can run any movie available on disc by arrangement with the film’s distributor. “I can screen anything – classic movies, golden oldies, classic sci-fi, old newsreels, you name it,” beamed Sellars. He can also screen films for local clients, and already enquiries are arriving. Okanagan filmmaker Jim Elderton, who has screened his films at several theatres across North America, saw his work tested on the new system. “The picture is stunning, and the sound is great. I’ve never seen it looking better.”

The projection room rarely drops below 100 degrees Fahrenheit all summer, so the work had to be done early in the morning or late at night. Following the old adage “The show must go on,” Sellars said cancelling movies or temporarily closing was not an option. Once everything was installed, Sellars tested the new system with Sellars The Magnificent Seven, the 1960 cowboy classic featuring Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson. He said the screen brightness was excellent with good contrast and sharp focus. Sellars was delighted. More configuration followed, along with training for the staff. The standard distribu-

IPP assets may offer creditor protection and typically suit business owners, incorporated professionals or key employees who are age 40 or older and earn an annual salary of at least $100,000.

TD is predicting a significant increase in lumber prices by 2013, and has praised the B.C. government for opening up new markets to counteract the slump in the U.S. housing market. “The B.C. industry and government have been very proactive in marketing wood for use in construction in China,� said Leslie Preston, an economist at the TD banking group. “China now imports more lumber from B.C. than from the United States." Preston predicted that by late 2013, improved demand from the U.S. will combine with growing demand from China "to produce a significant cyclical upswing in demand for lumber." The economist added that demand from China is conservatively predicted to grow by 10 per cent each year until 2015. In May and June, the value of B.C. exports to

China was greater than to the U.S. Shipments to China in May were more than $122 million, and in June, they reached more than $130 million. Said Pat Bell, Minister of Jobs, Tourism, and Innovation: “This is extremely encouraging news. The TD report validates the work we have been doing in this province over the last decade. “Through our jobs plan, we are going to take the lessons learned in the success of lumber trade with China, and apply it to other key sectors such as mining, natural gas, international education, tourism, agri-foods and technology. Our goal is to develop the environment and conditions that will create and protect jobs in B.C.� More than 55,000 people are employed by B.C.’s softwood lumber industry, which contributes more than $7.3 billion to the province's gross domestic product.

The shoreline of Texada Island provides an opportunity to soak up the scenery but to also look for items washed in by the tide.

The treasures of Texada LIZ CLARK Special To The Morning Star

B.C. - Do boaters have all of the fun cruising B.C.’s Gulf Islands? What about we landlubbers who only travel by car and ferry? My husband and I set about to discover many places of natural beauty inaccessible by boat on Texada, the largest island in the Strait of Georgia. Arriving by car ferry from Powell River on the North Island Princess, an excellent profile of Texada proved wrong the rumour that the island was flat. Lofty Mount Pocahantas is only one of many great slopes enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers and rock climbers. A short distance up from the ferry landing, the Texada Museum’s artifacts and photographs revealed a past where international mining magnates once scrambled for riches in the island’s geological formations: limestone, iron ore, copper and precious gold. Towering second-growth forest soon welcomed us as we drove south down a winding road to the Gillies Bay area where green and picturesque patches of pastures and farm land offered a more pleasant visual impression of Texada. Although a beautiful location with extraordinary views across the strait to snow-tipped Vancouver Island mountains, low tides over a shallow sandy shoal make moorage in the bay impossible. From the deck of our cozy waterfront cabin, we watched in amazement as the sea slowly receded to reveal golden sandbanks looking like giant stepping-stones. The treasures here are succulent

An aging shovel indicates a rich history of mining for limestone, iron ore, copper and gold on Texada Island. clams, oysters and for good luck souvenirs, ubiquitous sand dollars. To celebrate the Summer Solstice, we prepared a grand barbeque with particularly delicious food from the local general store. With all modern conveniences in the cabin and a wonderful hot tub on a deck large enough to entertain a family gathering, it seemed like a little bit of heaven. Had we arrived one month later, the highlight of many evenings would be watching the sparkling lights on cruise ships as they ply from Vancouver north to Alaska. Early every morning, chattering birds flew back and forth to nests in the nearby woodland and hungry hum-

mingbirds made regular visits for nectar from the colourful and fragrant flowers surrounding the cabin. At times, the faint drone of diesel engines could be heard across the open water as tugboats hauled heavily laden barges to and from mills up and down the strait. Unfortunately, we arrived too soon for one of the island’s largest events - a celebration of the lowest tide of the year. In mid-July, the annual Sandcastle Competition at nearby Shelter Point Park is fun for everyone. Rivalry is keen and often the creator of the scariest and largest sand serpent wins the prize. Then at the end of July, all sorts of small aircraft fly around and down over the bay

to land at the Gillies Bay airfield for an annual get-together. It’s Texada Fly-In time. Good eats and hanger talk highlight this event. With so many beachfront activities and beautiful views all around, a game of golf was another treat. Located not far from Blubber Bay, the ninehole Deer Leap course offers an honour box for nominal green fees. Not concerned about pull carts on this casual holiday, we happily set out with a few clubs in hand. Mature trees alongside the fairways provided some shade on a sunny afternoon and although an easy walk with few hazards, the greens were a challenge. Even after mowing, lush, fast-growing grasses and weeds insisted on poking back up so our balls seemed to hop toward the hole, but not into it. Our recovery tactic for weary feet walking on bumpy terrain called for a return to the cabin and a restorative dip in soothing hot tub waters. What a treat after a fun game of golf. Before saying our goodbyes to this beautiful island within the “rain shadow” of Vancouver Island’s mountains, we read this message left by landlubbers visiting in wintertime: “Snow, rainstorms, frost, sunshine – Wonderful! We’re so glad we came.” After our own great experience at Texada, we fellow landlubbers wondered, could this be the place for our own winter get-away?

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) There is nothing wrong with being in love with love itself if it’s for the right reasons, one of which is to make light of the troubles of the world, and to respond to them with compassion and affection. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Family members won’t mind if you adopt a takecharge attitude. They know that when you assume authority over a situation, it’ll make their lives easier. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) To get a new perspective on worldly woes, a change of venue is generally pretty helpful. You don’t have to go far away, only to where you can experience something unfamiliar. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If it fits into your schedule, go to a place that is different from where you usually shop, especially if you’re looking to purchase something distinct and unusual. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) It’s not unusual for you to focus on doing things for others, which is admirable. However, it might prove helpful to focus a bit on your own needs and wants for a change. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Don’t be surprised by how sympathetic you are to persons who are in need and could use some help. It won’t necessarily be only with loved ones, but anybody you like. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The key to forming a successful relationship is to show that you care about the other party’s needs and

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder Do not overlook what West led Samuel Lover, an Anglo-Irish novelist, songwriter and painter who died in 1868, said, “Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise.” At the bridge table, various circumstances -calls and plays -- can rule the weak because they do not draw the correct conclusions; they are the instruments of success for the wise. In this deal, West leads the heart three against three no-trump. What should happen? When responder holds nine points, he usually raises one no-trump to two no-trump. But this North hand is easily worth 10 points. It has an excellent

five-card suit and great intermediates: three 10s, three nines and one eight. When in no-trump, never start playing without counting your top tricks, your instant winners. Here, South starts with seven: one spade, one heart, one diamond and four clubs. Obviously at least three more tricks are available from dummy’s diamonds. But if that finesse loses, might the opponents be able to cash too many winners? What was the opening lead? The heart three. With how many hearts did West start? Often the answer would be four or five, but in this instance it must be four because the two is in the dummy. Therefore, if declarer wins the first trick and takes the diamond finesse, he

cannot lose more than four tricks: one diamond and three hearts. Having said that, though, can it cost to duck trick one? Yes! If East is in midseason form, he will immediately shift to the spade king. Then South will lose at least four major-suit tricks and the diamond king.

Education/Trade Schools

… passed away peacefully on October 4, 2011 at the Polson Special Care Unit. Don was the youngest of five siblings born to Annie and George Garlick. He lived all but one of his 87 years in Coldstream. Don grew up loving to fish, hunt and hike in the Kalamalka Park area and the mountain lakes beyond. He started working at a young age picking, pruning, custom spraying and hauling in the many orchards in the area. He met his wife, Gwen Clarke, and they married in 1950. He then began work as an equipment operator with R.E Postill and Sons when the orchard industry fell on hard times. During this employment with Postills, Don worked on many construction projects throughout the BC interior and had three children with Gwen. His one year spent out of Coldstream came when he left to work as a shop foreman at Rollins Machinery in Vancouver. However, this move away came to an end with a phone call asking if he would like to work for the District of Coldstream. This led to a position as the works superintendent for the District where he ran a tight ship for 23 years. Don loved the challenge of building and maintaining his community. Building water, road and sewer infrastructure on small budgets required a level of creativity and resourcefulness that is hard to find today. After retirement, Don spent his time doing what he loved; farming, spitting wood, helping neighbours with projects, snow plowing the neighbourhood driveways, traveling overseas and into the north, and napping. Over the years, he was a dictionary of knowledge on the area until his memory gradually started to fail him. He spent the last four months of his life in Vernon Hospital and Polson Special Care Unit where he received loving care. Don is survived by his wife of 61 years, Gwen, his three children, Janet Steel of Blackie, Alberta, Donna (Ralph) Johnson of Vernon, and Jim Garlick (Karen Thoresen) of Coldstream, eight grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren, sisters, Lilly Davidson of Coldstream and Dorothy Colbank of Ashcroft, plus numerous nieces and nephews. Don was predeceased by his brother, George Garlick, and his sister, Joan Brown. The family would like to express a special thanks to Don’s and Gwen’s neighbours, Don’s family physician, Dr de Beer, and all of the nurses and staff at the Vernon Hospital and Polson Special Care Unit. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so, may send donations in memory of Don to the Building a Tower of Care Campaign by calling (250) 558-1362 or online at http:// www.vjhfoundation.org/participate.htm. There will be a tea in memory of Don on Friday, October 21 between 2 and 4 p.m. at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall, 9909 Kalamalka Lake Road, Coldstream.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED LOCAL REVENUE LAWS AND INVITATION TO MAKE REPRESENTATIONS NOTICE IS GIVEN, pursuant to section 6 of the First Nations Fiscal and Statistical Management Act (hereafter referred to as the “FSMA”), that the Splatsin First Nation (“The First Nation”) proposes to enact the Splatsin First Nation Property Assessment Law, 2011 and the Splatsin First Nation Property Taxation Law, 2011 (hereafter referred to as the “Proposed Laws”). DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED LAWS: The Proposed Laws are a property taxation law and a property assessment law, both made under the authority of section 5(1)(a) of the FSMA. The property assessment law provides for the assessment and valuation of interests in land on the reserve lands of the First Nation, including appointing assessors, inspecting property, preparing assessment rolls, and mailing assessment notices. The property assessment law also provides a process for reconsideration of assessments and for a right of appeal to an independent assessment review board. The property taxation law establishes a taxation regime that taxes interests in land in the reserve, and includes provisions for exemptions, grants, preparing tax rolls and tax notices, the levy of penalties and interest on unpaid taxes, and the collection and enforcement of unpaid taxes. A COPY OF THE PROPOSED LAWS may be obtained from: Theresa William, Splatsin Band Of¿ce, 5775 Old Vernon Road, P.O. Box 460, Enderby, BC V0E 1VO. COUNCIL OF THE FIRST NATION INVITES WRITTEN REPRESENTATIONS regarding the Proposed Laws.

Persons wishing to make a written representation must deliver the document containing the representations to: Splatsin Chief and Council, Splatsin Band Of¿ce, 5775 Old Vernon Road, P.O. Box 460, Enderby, BC V0E 1VO. Representations should be received on or before 4:00 pm, December 9th, 2011 in order to ensure consideration by Council.

DEVELOP & PRACTICE A FIRE ESCAPE PLAN • Install smoke alarms on every level. Keep smoke alarms clean and dust-free, checking them monthly. Replace batteries yearly and alarms every 10 years. • In order to be able to react quickly to fire, draw a floor plan of your home showing all possible exits from each room. Use the grid provided above. • Where possible, plan two exits: a main route and an alternate route from each room. • Practice your escape plan at night as well, getting down on your hands and knees with a flashlight while crawling to safety. Heavy smoke impairs breathing, which is why staying close to the floor increases chances of escape. • Make certain that everyone understands that if they hear the smoke alarm, or someone shouting “FIRE”, they should immediately evacuate the home. • Designate a meeting place outside your home in the event of a fire. • Sleep with doors closed. If children are frightened, parents can close doors after the children fall asleep and use a room monitor to hear them during the night. • If awakened by a smoke alarm or a fire, instruct family members to feel the door for heat and check air at the bottom. If you don’t smell smoke and the air is cool, kneel and open the door slowly, turning your face away from the opening. If smoke is present or the door is hot, use another exit. • Place fire extinguishers throughout your home and learn how to use them. Make sure they are working correctly. • Make sure your babysitter understands your fire escape plan.
