City stalls road diet
RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
It will take more time to digest a road diet. While a decision was expected Tuesday, Vernon council voted 4-2 to defer a decision on reducing 43rd Avenue, from 27th and 32nd Streets, from four to three lanes so city staff can present more information. A staff report isn’t expected until after the Nov. 19 municipal election. “It will be up to the next council to make a decision,” said Coun. Jack Gilroy, who wanted a decision Tuesday. Mayor Wayne Lippert denies council is trying to avoid a contentious issue prior to going to the polls. “Council asked specific questions on the impact (of going from four to three lanes),” he said. “Council would have done this whether there was an election or not.” The concept of going to three lanes (one each way for traffic and a centre two-way, left-turn lane), as well as bike lanes, has been contentious. Many merchants have stated the plan will drive away business and the city recently received a 1,000-name petition slamming the proposal. However, Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe is convinced more information is needed on the potential impact on businesses. “What we’re getting from the citizens seems to be diametrically opposed to what we’re getting from staff,” she said referring to staff ’s call to improve safety and encouraging cyclists. “Traffic on 43rd Avenue is not flowing smoothly.” Coun. Patrick Nicol pushed his colleagues to make a decision. “People have spoken loud and clear and you don’t answer the public by just putting it off,” he said. Conrad Kober, with Roko Services, says deferral still gives council time to scrap the road diet plan. “I wish it was dead today,” he said, adding that lobbying against the plan will continue. Coun. Bob Spiers was absent Tuesday.

Mayoralty candidate steps forward RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A Vernon businessperson says the economy has suffered under the current city administration. Patrick Davies will run for mayor Nov. 19, with the political newcomer saying it made sense for him to seek the top job instead of running as a councillor first. “I’m not a good follower,” said the 45-year- Patrick Davies old owner of Latitude Marine. “To have another three years of the last six we’ve had will kill the economy.” Davies says there is a need to stimulate the economy and increase growth. “We need to find people who want to come
here and bring their businesses with them,” he said, adding it should be up to the mayor to lead the effort. “The mayor needs to sell the community and talk to businesses. We need to actively attract people.” Another concern for Davies is what he believes is a lack of accountability among council. “Forcing things down people’s throats whether they like it or not has to stop,” he said,” specifically pointing to recent plans to reduce the number of lanes on 43rd Avenue so bicycle paths could be installed. “When people are taking to the street in opposition, there’s a huge disconnect. I believe in an honest, open and accountable government that includes listening to our citizens.” Another priority is improving Vernon’s relationship with the District of Coldstream and

the Regional District of North Okanagan. “We need to have open communications,” he said. “We have to get along. We all live here.” Davies has lived in Vernon since 1977 and he has ran a number of businesses. “I have seen many changes in the years I have been here, some good and some not so good,” he said. “We need change, just not any change but planned sustainable change.” Davies admits one of his challenges will be making voters aware of who he is during the election campaign. “It will be six weeks of meeting with people and listening to them,” he said. “It will be a good opportunity to find out what’s important to the people of Vernon.” Also running for mayor are incumbent Wayne Lippert and retired physician Rob Sawatzky.

VJH floors to remain empty RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Any hopes that new acute care beds will get the green light Thursday have been dashed. Health Minister Michael de Jong will be at the official opening of the Polson tower but he will not make an announcement about completion of the two upper floors to alleviate ongoing congestion. â€œWe are making progress and identifying ways to address capacity issues,â€? de Jong told The Morning Star. He anticipates that a decision on acute care beds will be made early in the new year. â€œCapital funding is challenging but it must be funded operationally year-after-year,â€? he said of the two floors. â€œItâ€™s a case of trying to find money when itâ€™s scarce and there are competing needs across the province.â€? The price tag to develop both floors could be $20 million, and then $20 million would be needed annually to operate the floors (with 30 beds each). â€œI am relatively hopeful and confident we can do it,â€? said de Jong. VJH is funded for 148 acute care beds but on average, there are 164 patients daily. As a result, there have been patients in the halls and surgeries cancelled.
Doctors have insisted both floors, at 30 beds each, are required to alleviate overcrowding. However, de Jong says the projected cost could lead to only one floor possibly being done at a time. â€œIf you are a physician, you want as much as you can get, but I have to be mindful of the cost and what the numbers say about capacity,â€? he said. De Jong has been the focus of intense lobbying from Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster, municipal councils, residents, physicians and nurses. A 6,033-name petition demanding completion of the two floors was recently presented to de Jong. â€œThe message has been heard and MLA Foster has said this is the No. 1 priority of the region,â€? said de Jong. Doctors claim the new tower has done little to ease overcapacity issues. â€œSince opening day, admitted patients continue to be held in emergency stretchers due to the inadequate number of acute care beds,â€? said Michael Concannon, an emergency room physician. â€œGiven the continued severity of the dire overcrowding problem at VJH, we are hopeful that a solution â€” completion of the two acute care floors â€” will be announced sooner, rather than later by our provincial government.â€?

Test drive lands operator in hospital ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A Vernon motorcyclist remains in the intensive care unit of Vernon Jubilee Hospital after a single-vehicle crash in Okanagan Landing Sunday. V e r n o n RCMP report a 38-year-old man, who was already under prohibition from operating a motor vehicle stemming from Gerry Kovacs a 2008 accident, had been with some friends looking at an unlicensed motorcycle when he took it for a spin shortly after 6 p.m. “Witnesses have told us that the unlicensed motorcycle was being operated at a high rate of speed, grossly in excess of the 50 km/hour posted speed limit shortly before the accident,” said Vernon RCMP Cpl. Gerry Kovacs, who estimated the motorcycle was travelling three times the speed limit. The motorcycle was eastbound in the 6000 block of Tronson Road when it left the roadway and struck a raised culvert.
Kovacs said the impact sent both the motorcycle and driver airborne, and both travelled around 40 metres in the air. The motorcycle bounced on the ground upon landing and went another 30 metres. The driver, who police believe was wearing a helmet, was taken by ambulance to VJH in critical condition with undetermined injuries. His condition was listed as stable as of Tuesday morning. Speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors to the accident, said Kovacs. A police collision analyst attended the scene and the investigation into the accident is ongoing. A number of charges are possible against the driver, but when asked if the owner of the bike also faces a charge, Kovacs said it depends on how the investigation goes. “There are a lot of statements to be taken,” he said. “There were witnesses who saw the accident. We know something transpired at a meeting before taking the bike for a ride. If something comes out of that, we’ll lay the appropriate charge. “But there is no specific charge for letting someone drive an unlicensed vehicle.”

Lumby RCMP are asking for the public’s help in solving an apparent smash and grab at a village business. The Fields store in the 1900 block of Vernon Street was targetted on Sunday evening. “It appears the suspect or suspects smashed the front glass window and grabbed some headphones,” said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce. Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to call the Lumby detachment at 547-2151, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

t’s increasingly evident that disgruntled North Okanagan residents are sending ripples through the halls of the B.C. Legislature. On Oct. 7, communications staff rang me up to say that Health Minister Michael de Jong wanted to talk to me Tuesday. While appreciative of the opportunity, it was surprising because the number of times a cabinet minister has actually asked to speak to me over 21 years is zero. What prompted de Jong to break with tradition is he was trying to ensure there aren’t false expectations among residents and the media when he attends the official opening of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Richard Rolke tower Thursday. He wanted to be clear that there will be no formal announcement about funds for acute care beds. “We are making progress and identifying ways to address capacity issues,” he said, adding that a decision will likely occur early in 2012. “It’s a case of trying to find money when it’s scarce and there are competing needs across the province.” Reporters, physicians and some community leaders have speculated that funds for completing the two shelled-in floors in the tower would coincide with the ribbon-cutting. There have also been some concerns among Interior Health Authority officials that large crowds may converge to demand immediate action, undermining the celebration of the new facility. De Jong’s call Tuesday was a preemptive strike to try and cut the angry troops off at the pass.

However, as much as de Jong would like to avoid residents or questions from the media, a five-minute phone chat won’t send them off course. North Okanagan residents will continue to press MLAs Eric Foster and George Abbott until a decision — and particularly a positive one — is made. And the furor may escalate given that available beds were insufficient just days after the $180 million tower being seeing patients. “There are still patients housed in makeshift wards like MASH units, crowded into small rooms and alcoves,” said Dr. Chris Cunningham, a vocal proponent of more beds. “This is indecent to continue to care for patients in this way.” It’s anticipated conditions could get worse. “(There’s been) a summer of OR slowdowns pending the new move, so all of the surgeons have a backlog already. I am expecting a tidal wave of new cancer consults when the surgeons can get their patients in,” said Dr. Ed Hardy, an oncologist. If de Jong and IHA officials want to cut ribbons and pat each other on the back Thursday, that is fine because the new tower is a wonderful boost to local health care. However, they can’t keep avoiding the reality that the tower is not the be-all-and-end-all. More must be done. And while de Jong is right about B.C.’s financial challenges, doing what is necessary for the public can’t be cast aside forever. Patients can’t be allowed to languish in hallways or have surgeries cancelled simply because of the recession. If we wait for the economy to recover, we could wait forever. Instead of bursting the bubble of residents over an announcement and providing an undetermined date in the new year, de Jong needs to address the crisis now and that means guaranteeing funding.
The shape of policing in B.C. is in much doubt, following revelations that the federal and provincial governments are at odds over the next RCMP contract. Provincial Solicitor General Shirley Bond revealed the deadlock when she spoke to municipal officials at the UBCM convention. Cooler heads need to prevail. The RCMP need B.C. just as much as B.C. needs the RCMP. There are 6,000 Mounties working here — the most of any Canadian province. If their contract isn’t renewed, many of them will be out of a job. B.C. is right to insist on greater accountability for the RCMP. The public has demanded this since the death of Robert Dziekanski at the Vancouver airport, at the hands of Taser-wielding RCMP officers. While a civilian oversight agency is being set up, the RCMP themselves must be more accountable to the province and local governments. Municipalities also have grave concerns about budget implications. There is a good chance that the RCMP will become unionized, and that employee costs will rise sharply. Even if wages stay the same, there could be significant overtime bills. Municipal budgets can’t handle large, unexpected costs such as this and some assurance about how much costs will rise in the future is crucial. The federal government, which has the most tax authority in the country, should be willing to accept a one or two per cent annual cap on additional costs to be borne by the province and municipalities, and absorb anything above that figure. The two sides need to get back to the bargaining table and bargain in good faith. At the same time, the province and municipalities need to have a plan B fully in place, in case no deal can be reached. ---Langley Times

Library display offends
am a regular patron of the Vernon branch of the Okanagan Regional Library and normally note the books displayed in the window at its entrance. I was taken aback to see on Sept. 10, and again the following Sept. 11, a display of what can only be construed as taxpayer-funded publicity for the “vernon911truth” organization, the existence of which is often advertised through their notices in The Morning Star. When I enquired as to how use of that library display space is decided, the head librarian informed me that the library’s role is to present a range of viewpoints, that the so-called 911truth organization had requested the display, and that the executive director of the Okanagan Regional Library was aware of this presentation. I consider this to be poor judgement on the part of the library, and this letter is an attempt to explain why. I am not writing to argue the merits of any particular conspiracy theory, but rather to question the use of publicly-funded space to publicize a view which can charitably be described as unconventional and not generLIBRARY RESPONDS Thanks very much for letting me know about your concern regarding the display in one of the Vernon branch cabinets, put in by a group called Vernon 9/11 Truth. Okanagan Regional Library's policy on the selection of titles for our collections calls for a wide range of opinions to be included, some of which may be unconventional, unpopular or unacceptable. Similarly, library guidelines on bulletin boards and displays say that we don't accept commercial displays, or materials which contravene the Criminal Code or BC Human Rights. However, displays may represent a range of philosophical, political and religious viewpoints. Inclusion of materials on our bulletin boards or in our display areas does not mean that the library condones, endorses or recommends the materials or opinions involved in the display. This is why groups using library display cabinets must have their names on the display. I do not agree that having a display in a public space gives credibility to any "crackpot theory." Library users are free to review all of the materials available to them, and make up their own minds about what they believe.
ally accepted. Perhaps, next, should be a display in the library presenting the argument that the moon landings were really faked in Hollywood or that the Holocaust was a hoax? Where does one draw the line? And why does 911truth fall on one side and not the other? For those philosophically inclined, the principle of
You asked, 'Where one draws the line?' It's a good question. I think the line is in a slightly different place for each person, and it is not the regional library's role to define it. However, if the library contains only those opinions that a majority of people think are good or true, we would be considerably out of step with the world around us, in addition to being an incredibly boring institution. The library is for everyone, and will continue to present displays that make people laugh, or cry or think, and some of those displays will be offensive to some community residents. Lesley Dieno, Executive director, Okanagan Regional Library WASTED LANES What's the point of taking all our hard earned tax dollars to install biking lanes that motorists use as parking spots? City of Vernon, get your by-law officers out there and start ticketing these people. Especially on 15th street behind VSS. I understand some people cant read so well, but the picture of a bicycle painted inside a 4 foot wide lane doesn't clue you in? Marcel Bouzane
LANE ETIQUETTE I am glad that the cyclists of Vernon have their own lanes to safely travel on. It keeps them safe and they do not impede the flow of traffic for those who travel in vehicles. However, those lanes are meant to handle single-file bicyclists, not two abreast, or, as I have noted, three abreast. You are then encroaching on the vehicle lanes and you run the risk of being hit or having a vehicle swerve into the oncoming traffic. You can't have it both ways, i.e., dedicated bike lanes and "my" lane. I'll stay in my lane and you stay in yours. Penny S. Coon BAD MOVE I wonder whose boneheaded idea it was to move the bus terminal to Cenotaph Park? Now if people want to buy groceries, they have to push their carts five blocks to the nearest grocery store and five blocks back to the terminal. They said it will get rid of the drugs in the park. Now they will move to Polson Park where your children play. Nice thinking, council. And the cenotaph is sacred ground. Leave it alone. Is it because it will be closer
Occam’s razor should always be applied. Merely having a display in a public space can give credibility to any crackpot theory, credibility which would be very difficult to attain otherwise. I completely understand and agree that arguments can be made for any viewpoint, and should be freely accessible in a library. But that, to my mind, is very different than providing a public and publicly funded platform for a particular worldview. This is particularly true when, as in this case, the view has little, if anything, to do with the functions of a library. Personally, I and others found the presentation of this propaganda in a public space to be highly offensive at the time of the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Our library, like all public institutions, is ultimately accountable to the electorate. This taxpayer and voter seriously questions the judgement of the library in this instance. Wynn Polnicky
to the proposed library? I didn't realize books were more important than groceries. Of course, this way the mayor will be able to bus to work. Jack Graves
and the economic times, we want to know if the present mayor and councillors should remain or be removed and we want to make an informed decision. Garry Haas
AUDIT NEEDED I am asking the mayor and council that have made many property purchases in the past to hold a public audit of all of these purchases. If you believe that you made a valuable purchase for us city and us the public then please issue a report in the paper that has the following. Purchase price, upgrades (murals, paving etc.), demolishing charges, operating costs, income, lost taxes and finally the present value of this property. This information should be readily available and easy to put together. As a taxpayer in the city, this should be available to all of us. I am asking all taxpayers in Vernon to call, write or e-mail your elected (by you) council and mayor and ask that this happens. They are not going to respond to one person so I am asking all of my fellow taxpayers to help do this. With an election coming up

Clock talk resumes
RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Debate over Vernon’s downtown clock tower keeps on ticking. City council decided Tuesday to present the original clock faces in the 31st Avenue clock tower to the Greater Vernon Museum for restoration. They will be replaced by new faces in the structure.
“We’ve spent too much time on this clock,” said Coun. Jack Gilroy. Significant discussion has been held over the last few months on the fate of the clock tower, which hasn’t operated for at least four years. Council recently decided to spend $15,000 for mechanical mechanisms. The original faces will be part
of the museum’s restoration of the original 1912 mechanism, which has been stored at O’Keefe Ranch. “If we want to preserve the historic aspect of the clock, it deserves to be in the museum,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. The museum’s goal is to hold an exhibition in 1912 marking the centennial of the clock and the old
post office which used to house the clock. “Think about the visitor impact we could experience by having a working 100-year-old tower clock in the museum,” said curator Ron Candy in a letter to council. Gilroy believes the heritage clock could help promote future expansion of culture.

Learning the piano can be ‘EZee’ CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
Many people secretly wish they could play the piano; others say they wish their parents hadn’t let them quit lessons too soon. Westbank musician and music teacher Paulette Breault had these people and other adults who want music as part of their lives in mind when she designed EZee Piano Systems. “I had struggles learning to play the piano when I was a child. My mother was a piano virtuoso and it was expected that I would do well because it was in my genes, even though I was adopted,” said Breault, who did go on to be an excellent musician, in her personal and professional lives, teaching both music and French as languages to be learned with all the senses. “I teach people music, not music to people. I take into consideration the person, their personality, ability and understanding.” EZee Piano Systems starts with an evaluation lesson, followed by small group lessons with students at similar levels of ability. “People think they’re too old to learn to play but I have taught people in their 70s and they have learned to play for their own pleasure. It’s beautiful to see how the adults help each other in the classes.” The course, which is based on Breault’s more than 20 years of teaching school and music, including band classes, combines theory and practical work with the use of specially designed teaching aids.
CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR
Amanda Smiley of Boden Studio will be teaching the EZee Piano Systems course designed for adults by Westbank music teacher Paulette Breault. Amanda Smiley is a school and music teacher who has been trained and licensed by Breault to teach EZee Piano Systems in Vernon. “It’s such a different approach and program from traditional teaching methods. Anybody can do it. I had my husband playing with
it. The program is exactly what it says it is,” she said. “It is an innovative approach and not at all intimidating. The students learn to play familiar melodies with both hands using patterning and positioning. They learn how to read the melody line of music and how to chord. This
gives them the flexibility to go on to play the songs they like.” Smiley likes the educational and recreational approach of the program and said it exercised her brain to learn this new way of teaching and learning piano. “I could see right away that this would be good for adults. We
enrich our children’s environment, so why not enrich yourself as an adult? Learning something new can be a big hurdle but this is something anyone can learn and enjoy. I’m excited to see where this goes.” Breault has been teaching EZee Piano for a year and is thrilled with the results. “This is an immersion program, a natural way to learn. We have people learn to speak the language first, then learn to read and write it. I see people make new friends through the classes, as well as gaining benefits in other ways,” she said. She sees people gain a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction while improving mental acuity, creativity and eye-hand co-ordination and exercising their hands which is good for people with arthritis. “I’m learning so much from the students and there are many music teachers interested in the program,” said Breault, who plans to take EZee Piano Systems across Canada. She is pleased to see Smiley bringing the program to Vernon. “She’s a very smart young lady, a natural piano player and a really good teacher. I know things will go very well.” EZee Piano Systems includes a free evaluation and lessons in eight-week sessions which will start at different times of the year to accommodate individual schedules. The program is suitable for adults and teens who want to learn to play for pleasure. For more information call 778-475-0085.
Live from The Met begins with Anna Bolena JIM ELDERTON Special to The Morning Star
The Saturday morning opera-goers “club” at Galaxy Cinemas is about to re-group, when the phenomenally successful screening of the series The Met: Live in HD returns for its sixth season. Live transmissions from New York’s Metropolitan Opera, which go out via satellite in high definition and 5.1 digital surround sound, now reach more than 700 theatres across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Out of a total of 11 operas this season, seven will be new productions. These include one Met premiere and one world premiere. And six will be screened between now and Christmas. Saturday at 9:55 a.m., Anna Netrebko opens The Met season with Donizetti’s Anna Bolena. Set in Windsor Castle and the Tower of London in the year 1536, the doomed queen is driven insane by her appallingly unfaithful husband King Henry VIII. Netrebko sings one of opera’s greatest mad scenes in this Met premiere production
by David McVicar. Ekaterina Gubanova is her rival Jane Seymour, Ildar Abdrazakov sings Henry VIII, and Marco Armiliato conducts. And the duet between Anna (soprano) and Jane Seymour (mezzo soprano) is considered one of the finest in the entire operatic repertoire. Mozart’s Don Giovanni will be presented Oct. 29 at 9:55 a.m. He’s the young, arrogant, promiscuous nobleman who abuses and outrages everyone else in the cast until he encounters something he cannot kill, beat up, dodge, or outwit. Mariusz Kwiecien brings a youthful and sensual interpretation of Mozart’s anti-hero to The Met for the first time, under the direction of Tony award winning director Michael Grandage. The conductor is James Levine, now entering his fifth decade as resident music director. The full title of the opera literally means The Rake Punished. Although sometimes described as comic, it blends comedy, melodrama and the supernatural. And as a staple of the standard operatic repertoire, it rates seventh on the Operabase list of the most-performed operas
worldwide, besides proving a fruitful subject for writers and philosophers. In The Met’s ground breaking new fourpart production of Wagner’s The Ring Cycle, the much awaited part three, Siegfried, will take place Nov. 5 at 9 a.m. Wagner’s cosmic vision focuses on the hero’s early conquests, while Robert Lepage’s astonishing 80-ton stage set transforms itself from bewitched forest to mountaintop love nest. Gary Lehman sings the title role and Deborah Voigt’s Brünnhilde is his prize. Again, James Levine conducts. Philip Glass’s opera Satyagraha (“insistence on truth”) screens Nov. 19 at 9:55 a.m. Richard Croft plays Gandhi in the second of Glass’s Portrait Trilogy of operas about men who changed the world. This encore of a visually extravagant production was described by The Washington Post as “a profound and beautiful work of theatre.” On Dec. 3 at 9:30 a.m. is Handel’s Rodelinda. First performed in London in 1725, the first modern productions were at Glyndebourne and then at The Met. Renée Fleming reprises her sensational role from
Stephen Wadsworth’s much-heralded production from 2004. Baroque specialist Harry Bicket conducts. The last new production this fall is Gounod’s Faust on Dec. 10 at 9:55 a.m. With Jonas Kaufmann in the title role and René Pape as the devil, Gounod’s classic retelling of the Faust legend couldn’t be better served. Tony award winning director Des McAnuff updates the story to the first half of the 20th century, with a production that won great praise in London last season. Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin follows on the heels of his success with Don Carlo. For those who have never been to one of these shows, and who might perhaps feel intimidated by opera, know that you’ll watch world class performances from the one of the best seats, at a fraction of the New York cost. Subtitles carry the full text, and synopsis sheets are handed out at the ticket counter. More information is available at www. metoperafamily.org. Tickets and season packages are available at the theatre and online, with discounts for seniors and students. Visit www.cineplex.com/events.

Artist leads workshops for annual Lantern Festival Morning Star Staff
Artists at the Caetani Cultural Centre are gearing up for the annual Lantern Festival and parade Oct. 29. The parade will start at the soon-to-beopened Hub, adjacent to the Towne Theatre on 30th Avenue, at 6 p.m., and will wind through the streets of downtown, ending at the Caetani Cultural Centre on Pleasant Valley Road. In preparation for this fund-raising event, Caetani artist-in-residence James Postill is holding lantern-making workshops up to the event. The workshops take place every Saturday from now to Oct. 29 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. “Materials will be provided, however, anyone wishing to bring along their own items is welcome to do so. And if they’re recycled, all the better,” said Postill, adding, “Everyone is welcome, particularly families. It’s fun for parents to play alongside their children. They’re often surprised by their own innate creativity. And it gives them a break from Saturday morning chores.” Postill’s studio, an ideal location for lantern making, is made from straw bales covered with clay stucco, over which he has painted a fresco. “Those attending the workshops might like to collect some of the chestnuts on the grounds at the centre,” said Postill. “They’re perfect for making the old-fashioned toys that Sveva Caetani learned to make when she visited England as a child.” Those visiting the Caetani Cultural Centre before and during the lantern festival will be able to catch a number of the centre’s artists and residents in action.

Andrée Girouard, left, and Alexander Katalinic are instructed by resident artist James Postill on how to make lanterns at the first of four Saturday morning workshops at the Caetani Cultural Centre. Miranda Maxson is trying out different painted faces to wear as a fortune-telling dancing queen, while Devon Mulhert is filling water flutes to see how many mystical sounds children can create with them. Mulhert’s Tibetan singing bowls are already tuned to the atmosphere that will pervade the grounds at the Caetani Cultural Centre once the lan-

Photographer Brent Enridge is busy taking atmospheric photographs, while visual artist David Goodliffe is donning different hats and gowns to become Professor Silly, who will dole out treats from his on-site studio when children knock on his door at the festival.

Walking for mom helps the cause Morning Star Staff
Phoenix Dental Centre
Nancy Wilde has been named the top individual fundraiser for the 2011 Investors Group Walk for Memories, one of the largest annual fundraising events for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Wilde raised more then $26,000 for the walk honouring Wilde’s mother, Margery Wilde, which was held in Vernon earlier this year. At the walk, Wilde was also honoured as a family caregiver and volunteer who
has been a supporter of the Alzheimer Society for many years. “It’s the celebration of lives lived and being lived as well as the tireless dedication and support of the communities that make our province-wide fundraising event a success,” said Jean Blake, CEO, Alzheimer Society of B.C. “We want to recognize Nancy because her commitment to the cause also helps ensure the society is able to provide support and education to families and com-
munities all across British Columbia.” Participants from 21 communities across the province will take part in the Investors Group Walk for Memories Jan. 29, 2012. The 2012 walk in Vernon is dedicated to Ron Houston. The walk supports more than 70,000 people living with dementia in the province. To register (now open), to make a donation or for more information see www.walkformemories.com or call Janice Mori at 250-545-6221.

Men struggling with depression, family members, service providers and community members are invited to the Vernon Suicide Prevention Committee presentation Men and Depression Oct. 26. The presenters are Ken Spotswood, a male survivor of addiction and depression; Kelly Fehr, manager of shelter services, John Howard Society of the North Okanagan and Kootenay Region; and Hellmut Noelle, counsellor specializing in male sexual abuse, The Family Resource Centre for the North Okanagan. The presenters will share their professional and personal experiences with depression. Noelle finds that about 35 to 40 per cent of his client load — 12 to 16 men at any one time in individual, open-ended counselling — are men who have experienced sexual abuse.
“If you go back even 10 years ago, and definitely 20 years ago, the idea that men could be sexually abused wasn’t talked about. Now it is more accepted and other community services are aware of the programs and the help available,” said Noelle. “When men are able to receive counselling, they find that the anger, fear, shame, blame, substance abuse and nightmares are all reduced. They have better relationships and things are better for them at work and all areas of their lives. They become more comfortable with what happened and can even accept that good things that can come out of bad.” Noelle suggests that men who want counselling for sexual abuse call the Family Resource Centre and come in to talk. They do not have to say when they make the appointment that they want counselling for sexual abuse. If the abuse is more recent, it
should be reported to the RCMP. Even if there is not enough evidence for charges, reports can be useful to the police in dealing with someone who may still be offending. “All the topics of the presentation fit together. We talk about self care, how to move out of depression and that there is hope and you can have a life after abuse, addictions and depression,” said Noelle. The workshop will cover addictions, anger, relationships, past trauma, disabilities and spirituality, with question and answer time to follow. Vernon is fortunate in that the only other programs for men who have been sexually abused are in larger centres — Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver and Victoria. Men and Depression takes place Oct. 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Centre. There is no charge for the event, which includes coffee and snacks. RSVP to email@example.com.

Turkey’s second act
ere’s hoping everyone had a good Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends. What I like best about a great Thanksgiving feast is that I don’t have to cook for several days. There is always a second meal of the same dinner on day two as well as the turkey and/or ham sandwiches in between. For me, a delicious pot of homemade turkey soup is served on the third day. If you’re feeling brave, try something totally different, like the enchilada recipe below. The turkey and pumpkin make perfect partners in this Mexican dish. As for the Cathi Litzenberger the turkey pie recipe, it’s an easy and delicious supper. Turkey Pumpkin Enchiladas Cooking spray 4 cups chopped cooked turkey 1 (15 oz.)can refried beans 1 (29 oz.) can pure pumpkin purée 1/4 cup taco seasoning mix 1 (29 oz.) can tomato sauce 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, or more to taste 2 tbsp. chicken bouillon granules 8 (10-inch) whole wheat tortillas 1 (8 oz ) package shredded cheddar cheese Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a 9 X 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Mix the cooked turkey, refried beans, pumpkin purée and taco seasoning in a bowl. Pour tomato sauce into a blender, and add the chipotle pepper and chicken bouillon granules;
KITCHEN WIT & WISDOM
blend until smooth, about 30 seconds. Lay a tortilla out onto a work surface, and generously spoon turkey filling in a line down the middle of the tortilla. Fold a top and bottom flap of the tortilla towards the middle, and fold the sides inward to enclose the filling. Lay the enchilada, seam side down, into the baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling. Pour the sauce over the filled tortilla, and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake in preheated oven until cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbling, 35 to 45 minutes. Serve with a fresh salad and dinner is served. Deep-Dish Turkey Pie 2 tbsp. butter or margarine 1/4 cup chopped celery 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 can (10-1/2 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup 1 cup milk (or leftover gravy) 1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning 1/4 tsp. pepper 4 cups cubed cooked turkey or chicken 1 pkg. mixed vegetables or use your own 1/2 pkg. Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box (1 crust) Heat oven to 400 F. In 3-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add celery and onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in soup, milk, poultry seasoning and pepper. Cook until thoroughly heated. Gently stir in turkey and vegetables. Pour into ungreased 2-quart casserole or 10-inch quiche pan. Remove pie crust from pouch; place flat over turkey mixture. Roll up edge of crust to fit top of dish; flute edge. Cut slits in several places in crust. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until golden brown; let stand 10 minutes before serving.
City of Vernon 20 STREET PROJECT FEEDBACK OPEN HOUSE Thursday, October 13, 2011 • 5:00 to 7:00 pm Council Chambers, City Hall (3400 30 St) The 20 Street rebuild and school safety zone between 43 Avenue and 48 Avenue is now complete. The boulevard was removed to allow for the construction of two travel lanes, a sidewalk, a multi-use path, cycling lanes and landscaping. As part of necessary road maintenance, the layout was changed to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. Direction for this project was taken from the feedback received from the community during the Ofﬁcial Community Plan, the Transportation Plan and the Harwood Elementary School Travel Plan processes. The City of Vernon is hosting an open house for residents to provide feedback on this project. Anyone who would like to comment is invited to attend. The feedback will be provided to the Mayor and Council. More information is available on the Vernon Moves website: www.vernon.ca/vernonmoves.

His hope is to raise $100,000 for mental health in BC targeting our youth.
The Canadian Mental Health Association invites you to come out in support of Michael Schratter & mental health in BC. WHAT: BBQ and dessert available by donation while supplies last. WHEN: Thursday, October 13th WHERE: 3100 - 28th Avenue at 5:00 PM. WHY: Proceeds will go toward the â€œRide Donâ€™t Hideâ€? campaign.

With her passion for the environment, Claire Macdonald was the choice to earn this yearâ€™s bursary from the Armstrong Spallumcheen Environmental Trust (ASET) The Pleasant Valley secondary school 2011 graduate was awarded the $1,000 bursary recently by ASET, which awards local students pursuing the solutions toward a return of global environmental health. Macdonaldâ€™s main interest is in environmental journalism. She is a champion of high energy dance, and she also plays piano. She is now in her first term at the University of Victoria. ASET was established in 2002 by members who felt that the earthâ€™s resources were being consumed at an alarming rate and increasing pollution was rapidly degrading the environment. In order for society to meet its future environmental challenges, ASETâ€™s members believe it is crucial to support motivated young people in their education in fields related to the environment. An annual bursary was established to encourage local students to enter post-secondary studies in a field related to environmental sustainability. Students can prepare for careers in forest sustainability, development of non-polluting fuel sources, water protection, or wildlife biology, just to name a few eligible fields. For more information about ASET, or to apply for a bursary, e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org

Traditions Continue at Askew’s If you thought that butchery was a lost art, you would probably be right. Today, most supermarkets receive boxes of pre-cut meat from wholesalers and industrial farms, sometimes from places as far away as Mexico or Japan. Not here. At Askew’s the old-fashioned craft of meat cutting remains, simply enhanced by improved technology. The knowledge and knife skills required to break down an entire animal carcass are the same today as they were decades ago when becoming a butcher was a common career choice. The difference today is that butchers now have to cater to our growing need for sustainable food choices. Askew’s began as a meat-only store back in 1929 and even though they have long since expanded to a full-service grocery store, the meat departments remain an integral part of each location. Qualified journeyman meat cutters and ongoing training programs enhance the quality of the finished product, and allow the meat department staff to help customers make informed decisions about the product they are buying. Askew’s prides itself on using local growers, farmers, and suppliers whenever possible. For example, their federally-inspected poultry is from a local farm, and local cheese is cut and packaged in store. Being a “small-town” market gives Askew’s the flexibility of being able to provide many specialty cuts and products for their customers on a regular basis. Steaks, roasts, and fresh turkey can be ordered for special events. Hard-to-find items such as sliced side pork, pigs feet, hocks, corned beef and suet
are readily available, as is the fresh bison meat sold in store Thursday through Saturday each week. Beef and pork are ground fresh daily, and home-style sausage meat is made in-store. For years, Askew’s has produced their own smoked beef bacon, back bacon, smoked pork chops, slab bacon, hocks and jowls, all infused with real smokehouse flavour. Dick and Donnie Askew with their awardwinning Kurosweet hams and bacon, circa 1950
Looking to fill up your freezer? At Askew’s, you can order custom cut hinds and sides of beef, as well as sides of pork, cut and wrapped to your specifications. Nothing goes to waste – anything not sold in the meat case for human consumption gets made and sold as raw pet food. Recently, Askew’s partnered with the Vancouver Aquarium to introduce the “Ocean Wise” products to their lineup. The Ocean Wise program identifies and promotes seafood products that are recognized as having been caught or farmed in such a way as to ensure long-term sustainability of the species and supports environmentally friendly fishing practices. The traditions of the oldfashioned butcher shop are alive and well at Askew’s, but those traditions are combined now with a heightened awareness about the origins of our food along with a willingness to offer things not easily found elsewhere.

Community donations on display in branch
“Our annual silent auction allows our team to make a difference in people’s lives and honour Scotiabank’s tradition of community giving.”
A branch that builds community
Courtnay Arnold, Customer Service Supervisor Vernon, British Columbia
Scotiabank Vernon Main Branch in B.C. held its 10th annual silent auction in October. This year’s staff-picked charity recipients were KidSport and the Campaign to Rebuild Camp Hurlburt. KidSport helps local kids participate in a sport season of their choice. Camp Hurlburt is a local paddling summer camp for kids aged 5-17. Area businesses donated items to the Scotiabank Vernon auction, ranging from gift baskets to autographed hockey sticks. The silent auction has raised funds for charities like the Alzheimer Society, the North Okanagan Hospice Society and the Vernon Food Bank.

Midget Vipers secure silver

Snakes squeak by Cents Morning Star Staff
Head coach Jason Williamson said the Vernon Vipers are prepared to win one-goal hockey games, and they are proving it. Saturday night’s 3-2 overtime result against the host Merritt Centennials was the Snakes’ third foray into extra time, and fifth time in seven B.C. Hockey League games they have been on the right side of a one-goal decision. The 7-0 Vipers are the only remaining undefeated BCHL team and occupy first place, two points clear of the Coastalleading Powell River Kings (6-2). “In all three (OT) games we didn’t play well, but we found ways to win. All three of those games were probably our worst games of the season,” said Williamson. Netminder Kirby Halcrow made 39 saves to earn first star before 640 fans in the postage-stamp sized Nicola Valley Arena. With pretty much anything over the redline
considered a scoring chance, the Centennials, seventh in the Interior at 1-4-1-2, fired at Halcrow from all angles. “It might have taken a few minutes to adjust (to the rink), but I settled down after that,” said Halcrow, 20. “It makes it easier with them shooting from out there, and the guys were letting me see the puck, so that was good.” And when Merritt did get traffic in front of towering netminder, Halcrow added: “I was fighting through screens and looking around guys to make room to see the puck.” Mike Zalewski, with his team-leading sixth goal, buried the winner in the second OT period after a nice feed from Darren Nowick. Defenceman Luke Juha made a good heads-up play to spring them on a 2-on-1. “We were opportunistic. They’re good at home and they threw everything at the net, but Kirby was good,” said Williamson.

The Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers struck Midget Tier 1 silver at the ninth annual Seafair Islanders International Ice Breaker Hockey Tournament Monday in Richmond. It took a shootout to decide the action-packed final between the Vipers and Richmond, with the Blues scoring once to win the championship game 3-2. Vernon came back from a 2-1 deficit in the third period as Game MVP Cody Hendrickson scored his second goal of the final, from Austin Krahn. From then on, the Vipers took it to the Blues, registering 23 shots in the third period. The flurry continued into the 4-on-4 overtime, but the Vipers couldn’t put one past the acrobatic Richmond goaltender. “I was proud of the guys for the way they came back and never gave up,” said Vernon head coach Jim Armstrong. “I think they may have surprised themselves with how well they played. It’s a great start to the year.” Hendrickson roofed his first goal in the opening period, from Justin Mitchell and Krahn, to tie it 1-1. Max Brown was solid in net for the Vipers. The Home Building crew qualified for the A final by winning their pool with a win and two ties. They stopped the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies 7-4 in the semifinal Sunday. Mitchell (Game MVP) had a goal and two assists, as did Logan Geefs, against the Grizzlies, while Trevor Pickett scored twice. Dennon Leibel and Richard Meaney also scored, while d-man Connor Payne got the other goal on a slapper from the point. Curtis Sexsmith contributed three assists. In round-robin play Saturday, the Vipers beat North Shore
Winter Club 1-0 and battled Anchorage to a scoreless draw. Wyatt Bonneau supplied the lone goal against North Shore, with Mitchell and defenceman Kyle Clarke drawing assists. Game MVP Brown earned the shutout. Evan Campagnolo registered Game MVP and the shutout against Anchorage. Vernon hosts Penticton’s Okanagan Hockey Academy Friday, 8:15 p.m. at Civic Arena. The Vernon Sun Valley Source for Sports Bantam Tier 1 Renegades also took second place in the Seafair tournament, losing 7-1 to the Islanders in Monday’s final. Seafair held period leads of 1-0 and 2-0 before netting four goals in a seven-minute span in the third period. Jeff Bochon, from Braydon McCarthy, counted the Renegades’ goal. Louis Springer made 40 saves in the loss. Vernon knocked off Juan de Fuca 5-1 in Sunday morning’s highly physical semifinal. The teams were assessed 105 penalty minutes (63 to Juan de Fuca), with netminder Bryce Dyck enjoying a strong game for Vernon. Daine Elphicke (from Jagger Williamson) opened scoring early in the first period, while Blaine Caton (from Bochon) made it 2-0 two minutes later. Vernon scored three more in the second to take a 5-0 lead with Carson Richards, Noah Turanski and Bochon connecting. Caton had two helpers. The Grizz ruined Dyck’s shutout bid late in the second. Sun Valley opened by falling 6-0 to Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence with Nick Stanhope taking game MVP for Vernon. Vernon rebounded with a 2-1 victory over North Vancouver.

Vernon Viper forward Adam Tambellini (right) intercepts Merritt’s Brent Fletcher (left) as he tries to tuck a puck past netminder Kirby Halcrow in B.C. Hockey League action Saturday night at Nicola Valley Arena.
Pierce rates Cents’ effort Continued from A26 “There was no real structure out there, but we found a way to win. Our veterans got it done again.” After a scoreless first period, the Vipers struck in the second frame when John Knisley carried the puck wide and fired on net. The rebound landed on Nowick’s stick for an open net at 6:50. Alex Hagen, with his second of the season, made it 2-0 with a crafty play, surprising netminder Lino Chimienti (28 saves) with a shot off a faceoff. Dustin Lebrun put Merritt on the board three minutes into the third period as he stepped into a loose puck off a faceoff to beat Halcrow high glove side. Later in the third, after some good movement by the Cents’ on a powerplay, Reece Wilcox walked in from the point and beat Halcow through traffic to force OT. “It was nice to finally have an effort that I feel we’re capable of. The result was unfortunate, but it
was a start,” said Merritt head coach Luke Pierce. “I thought that Halcrow was outstanding. And they capitalized basically on the one opportunity they got in the OT. You really have to try and minimize the mistakes you make against good teams like that.” The Vipers are in Chilliwack to face the 3-1 Chiefs Friday night at Prospera Place, and end a three-game road schedule Saturday against the Penticton Vees at South Okanagan Events Centre. The Vees, second in the Interior at 5-1-0-1, have averaged seven goals a game over their last four games. They fell 5-4 in overtime to the Prince George Spruce Kings Saturday night.

Mulcahy wires Knights’ winner Interested in Morning Star Staff
Sean Mulcahy supplied the winner on a thirdperiod powerplay as the North Okanagan Knights clipped the Sicamous Eagles 3-2 Saturday night at the Sicamous Recreation Centre. Brothers Patrick and Eric Chore drew the assists as the Knights improved to 6-3, good enough for a share of third place in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League’s Okanagan/Shuswap Conference. Brendan Devries opened the scoring for the 3-6 Eagles in the first period before the Knights stormed back with three unanswered goals. “We made some strides from the week before, but we still have to clean up our defensive play,” said Knights’ head coach Kris Mallette. John Saunders, with his first of the season, put North Okanagan on the board with a point shot in the second period. Cory Hauchhausen put the Knights in front with a buzzer beater to end the second period. “Our guys played to the whistle and were rewarded. Their guys looked like they were skating off the ice,” said Mallette. With Dustin Nikkel called up to the BCHL Westside Warriors for the weekend, rookie netminder Colten Wright, a Salmon Arm native, recorded 32 saves for his second win.
“He kept us in it for sure. When they pulled their goalie for the extra attacker, he made some big saves,” said Mallette. Sicamous netminder Kris Drott made 24 stops. The Eagles’ Jagger Bowles, taking advantage of a missed assignment, pulled the hosts within a goal by burying a shot on a rush. Wright shut the door after that. The Knights will face a range of talent as they head into a three-game weekend. They open against the 7-4 Osoyoos Coyotes Friday at the Sunbowl and visit the 5-2-0-1 Princeton Posse Saturday at Princeton Arena. They host the winless Chase Heat (0-11) in a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday at Nor-Val Sports Centre. “We’ve got a big weekend coming up. It’ll be a good test for our kids. We’re trying to instill that we play the same way regardless of who it is. We want to find that consistency,” said Mallette. Meanwhile, Armstrong’s Owen Barker and Vernon’s Jared Suetter and Ryan Scheidt recorded helpers as the Heat fell 6-4 to the host Creston Valley Thundercats Sunday at Johnny Bucyk Arena. Dylan Richardson led the Heat with three goals in support of Vernon’s Jordan Vallance (29 saves). The Thundercats’ Michael Hails, another Vernon minor hockey product, recorded 12 saves and the win as he split netminding duties with Tyler Moffatt.

Sharks shut out Kelowna Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Seed Orchard Bantam Sharks defeated Kelowna 3-0 in an all-girls hockey battle Saturday at Civic Arena. Kelowna came out strong in the first 10 minutes, peppering goalie Bailey Berndt with several shots. Nikala Debalinhard and Selena BridgeHanson anchored the defence, covering loose players and clearing rebounds. Vernon took control of the game at the end of the first period when Chelsea McCaig started some great passing plays and Brooke Berube, Erin Poland Molly Crandlemire and Taylor Cousins forechecked to keep Kelowna pinned in their end. The Sharks’ hard work was rewarded at 4:15 in the second when Cailee Bauml stripped a Kelowna defender and made a perfect pass to Hannah Scherck, who one-timed the puck to the far side for the Sharks’ first goal of the season. Just two minutes later, Brittany Jackson took a quick shot and her rebound came to Taylor Vandale, who used quick hands to tuck the puck into the side of the net. The Sharks kept pressing in the third period and the usually defensive-minded Hannah Swift picked up a loose puck inside the blueline and ripped a wrist shot from the high slot five-hole. Kelowna put on a huge push to break the shut out, but Berndt stood tall as she earned her first career shutout. The Sharks are 1-2 in exhibition action. Meanwhile, the Pee Wee Lakers girls stopped Williams Lake 6-0 and 5-0 in exhibition weekend action at Civic. Kendra Ostafie scored the first goal Saturday with Courtney Graves and Andie Kaneda earning

Monday morning quarterfinal. Tied 4-4 after six ends, Ferbey cracked a threeender in the seventh to secure the win. Cotter, who collected $5,250, is pleased with how his rink is gelling with the addition of second Tyrell Griffith. With Cotter moving up to skip, Kevin Folk is at third and Rick Sawatsky is lead. “The guys are playing well and we’re happy with where we’re at,” said Cotter, a semifinalist at the recent Twin Anchors Classic at the Vernon Curling Club. “With a new team and new positions, there’s always little things to work out.” In other quarterfinal play, McEwen shut out Edmonton’s Kevin Koe 6-0, Martin stuffed Laycock 9-1 and Rosetown, Sask.’s Carl deConinck Smith outlasted New Westminster’s Brent Pierce 5-4.

Coke crew finishes 2-2 in Shuswap Continued from A26 It was 1-0 North Vancouver early in the second period. Vernon responded with two goals from Caton in the third, on feeds by Cole Woodliffe and Carson Richards. Dyck (MVP) was great in goal, especially during a North Vancouver powerplay early in the first period. In Game 3, Bochon collected 3+1 as the Renegades stuffed North Delta 6-0. Braydon McCarthy, Williamson and Turanski also scored, while Richards supplied three assists and Stanhope had a pair. Springer recorded the shutout to earn MVP. The Midget Tier 2 Coca-Cola Vipers went 2-2 and finished strong in the Salmon Arm Midget Tier 2 Tournament, getting 3+1 from Tyson Clark in a 6-1 win over Quesnel. Carson Tucker (3+2) led the Vipers in points and hits for the tournament and had some great help from linemates Jacob Dolinar (1+2) and Lee Springer (0+3), holding off Clark and Travis Churchill (1+3) for the most points. The defence showed the offensive upside of the system with goals by Kenny Batke, Brandon Rysen, Conor Butte-Landsfried and Griffen Fried. Bruin Stair and Jayden Campbell were awesome in net. The Vernon Machine Bantam Tier 3 Vipers competed hard but went 0-4 in the Seafair Tournament. The Snakes lost 8-0 to North Shore Winter Club and 7-0 to Westside, teams which made the final. Vernon bowed 4-2 to the Saanich Braves as Austin Dixon scored on a deflection from Jarett Campbell’s point shot and Bryton Stead clicked from Richard Thompson. In the crossover game, the Vipers lost 6-2 to Victoria Racquet Club. Scoring for Vernon were Bryce Pyle, assisted by Austin Derkach and Brian Ferguson, and Derkach, assisted by Pyle and Colton Skead.
Pee Wee Tier 3 Jets go 2-2-1 in Westside In Pee Wee Tier 3 play, the Vernon Nixon Wenger Jets went 2-2-1 at the Westside Warriors Tournament, ending with a thrilling 6-5 shootout loss to the Penticton Vees on Monday. Dawson Boyce (2), Jaxson Cummings, Keaton McCune and Liam Hennig scored for the Jets, who failed on all three of their shootout attempts. Penticton scored once in the shootout. In Sunday games, the Jets ambushed the North Delta Sun Demons 9-2 and bowed 5-1 to the Kelowna Rockets. Kyle Sherwood pulled the hat trick against Delta, with Nick Cherkowski and Coleton Bilodeau each scoring twice and singles going to Finnian O’Keefe and Hennig. Boyce had Vernon’s goal versus Kelowna. The Jets opened play Saturday by doubling Penticton 4-2 with Bilodeau (2), O’Keefe and Zach Agar handling the offence. Vernon then tied up the Warriors 3-3 on goals from Cherkowski, Dawson Chase and McCune. MVP awards went to Bilodeau, Sherwood, Cummings, O’Keefe and Jenna Fletcher, while defensive player of the game honours were eaned by Makenna Hoffman, goalie Jayden Jensen, Damian Coljee-Fehr, Niklas Luttmerding and Keeghan McRae. “For the first tournament of the year, the team played well and showed lots of hard work and character in coming from behind in two games to win,” said Jets’ head coach Keith Chase. “We’re still working on the little things with the kids and it is
all coming together nicely. Liam Henning and Kyle Sherwood had especially strong tournament showings.” The Pee Wee Tier 3 Vernon Predators registered back-toback wins in Okanagan Mainline League play versus South Okanagan, starting with a 8-3 matinee victory Saturday in Osoyoos. Ethan Huizinga stopped 33 shots for the win, while Aidan Rysen opening the offence, followed by powerplay tallies from Mika Burns and Brayden Harshenin. Solid defence from Noah Debalinhard and Juli Gilowski helped Richard’s unassisted winner in the third to open the floodgates. Dex Elders clicked from Drayden Dougan and Burns, Stephane Richards scored from Harshenin, Dougan converted from Burns, and Harshenin scored with the assist going to Brayden Jones. The Preds stopped South Okanagan 6-3 Sunday morning in Oliver with Jordan Campagnolo and Burns scoring firstperiod goals. Netminder Braeden Barnard was busy in the final two periods and finished with 38 saves. Mason McLennan’s point shot, from Harshenin and Elders, and Burn’s wrister from Elders, gave the Preds a three-goal lead. Richards, on a tap in, from Joe Eggert and Harshenin, and Rysen from Lucas Halvorson and Caden Bracken, completed the Preds’ offence.
Michael Kormany. Rowan Miller, Eric Noren, Tanner Wright, Braeden McAmmond and Lucas Zubrod replied for the Wolfpack. Lochlan O’Keefe and Miller both recorded hat tricks against Westside, while Ben King earned 2+2. Tysen Fairweather and Noren each fired two goals and Lee Christensen one. The H&L Glass boys toppled Aldergrove 7-1 in other prelinary action with Wright earning game MVP.
Venom snag silver medal in Winfield The host Winfield Bruins bounced the Vernon Valley Wood Venom 5-2 in Monday’s final of the Thanksgiving Atom Development Tournament. Jacob Green and Landen Harison scored for the Venom, whose game MVP was gritty Lincoln Connor. Goaltending duties were split between Tyler Sedlacek and Dalton Stenberg, who were tough to beat all weekend. Head coach Kevin Cherkowski was pleased with the team’s hard work throughout the tourney. The Venom opened with a dominating 6-2 win over the Burnaby Eagles as Brayden Beacom scored a deuce and singles came from Harison, Green, Cory Lazar and Caden Danbrook. Gavin Fleck was tireless on defence and took game MVP. Vernon then battled the Kelowna Raiders to a 7-7 tie in a game the Venom led 6-2 at the break. Danbrook’s third goal of the game late in the third period was the equalizer. Other scorers were Fleck, Chase Batchelor and Harison. Evan Trottier added a couple of assists. Danbrook was MVP. In Sunday action, Harison bagged a pair as the Venom clipped the Bruins 5-4. Cameron Moger, Anne Cherkowski (MVP) and Danbrook supplied singles. In Thanksgiving Monday’s semifinal, the two Vernon teams collided with the Venom doubling up on the H&L Glass Wolfpack 4-2. Ben Imrich opened up the Venom scoring, while Moger scored shorthanded, Danbrook connected on the powerplay and Beacom finished off the attack. Goalie Caden Colmorgen was named Wolfpack game MVP The Wolfpack fell 7-5 to the North Okanagan Knights and smothered Westside 13-0 in their opening games. Kord Haller and Nick Walker each scored twice for the Knights, who got singles from Mitchell Brown, Eli Dwyer and

Tiremen roll in Penticton tourney Morning Star Staff
The annual Penticton Thanksgiving weekend tournament found fewer teams than usual this year, meaning less teams in each division, The Vernon Big O Ogopgos were in tough in the 45+ division with Okanagan champion Kelowna IGA and perennial tournament winning Penticton Pinnacles, and Prince George. Big O, who just missed making the final at 1-1-1, gave their best-ever showing against IGA, eventually losing 6-1 in their opener. Bryan Mckewen scored for the Ogopogos, who lost reliable midfielder Brad Conlin with a groin injury early in the game. The Ogopogos then settled for a 1-1 draw with Prince George as Rob Ross connected on a penalty kick. Vernon held on until the last few minutes when Prince George buried the equalizer past keeper Yogi Kongsdorf, who was playing injured. Big O lost defender Paul Hunter to a bad knee injury and defender Greg Thalheimer with the flu before the third and final game, a 2-1 win over Penticton. Big O scrambled for players and were able to start the game with one sub, taking the surprising lead on another rushing goal by Mckewen and then another goal by Dave Dawson. Dawson was left all alone in the 18-yard box after the Pinnacles stopped running because they thought the ball had gone out of bounds. Dawson chipped the ball over the keeper’s head. Later in the game, Penticton received a controversial penalty kick after a collision between Al Bensmiller and a Pinnacle forward. The Penticton player beat Kongsdorf, who played superb and helped Big O to their first win ever against the reigning champ Pinnacles.

Vernon’s Kirsten Dodds scored twice in an 11-minute span as the UBC Heat ambushed the UNBC Timberwolves of Prince George 4-0 in PacWest women’s soccer play Saturday at Nonis Field in Kelowna. Lindsey Briggs opened the offence in the 19th minute with her third goal of the season. Dodds connected in the 57th and 68th minutes, giving her five goals on the year. Kelsey Satterfield completed the Heat offence at 86 minutes. The Heat, who lead the Group B standings at 5-11, initially failed to get a grasp on the ball and kept battling for possession before taking control in the second half for their third straight win. In the 19th minute midfielder, Michelle Smith

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Control your powers of concentration by keeping your mind only on the task at hand. If you happen to make a mistake, you should be able to catch it immediately and fix it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Something youâ€™ve neglected for far too long might hamper your freedom of mobility. What youâ€™ve been sweeping under the rug could suddenly create a veritable storm of dust bunnies. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Indecisiveness is an attitude that can easily be corrected. However, if you continue to persist being wishy-washy, your friends might not want to deal with you anymore. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Guard against continually attempting to do things that are way beyond your mental or physical capabilities. Face up to your shortcomings and seek help when needed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If you want special items that you own to enjoy long lives, pay attention to your care in handling them. Breakage is a product of carelessness. CANCER (June 21-July 22) When negotiating something of significance, make certain all parties involved understand the small points as well as the main issues in the agreement, so no one later can claim ignorance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Methodically plot your course of action before you jump into the fray, or you could end up being the victim of your own handiwork. Look ahead and program each and every step you take. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If you let your friends look upon you as their rock of Gibraltar today, theyâ€™re likely to bring more trouble into your life than you care to handle. Put limitations on your availability.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Certain people tend to be somewhat caustic and/ or critical, but you donâ€™t have to respond in kind. Set a good example by being extremely tolerant when dealing with everybody.

Bridge by Phillip Alder A pass may reveal as much as a bid If the dealer passes, it means that his hand does not have 12 high-card points or (probably) a long suit. In addition, though, if that initial pass is in a composed lesson deal or a newspaper column, it will help declarer with the play. In this layout, how should South plan the play in four hearts after West starts the defense with his three top clubs? North’s three-heart response is a limit raise, guaranteeing a maximum pass and at least fourcard support. (If you use Reverse Drury by a passed hand, do not stop; it is recommended. In this instance, North
would respond two clubs, showing a near opener with three or more hearts.) In either scenario, South rebids four hearts. South ruffs the third club, draws trumps and cashes his four diamond tricks, discarding two spades from the dummy. Then, with his contract on the line, he leads a low spade, West playing low. Should declarer ﬁnesse dummy’s jack or should he go up with the king? Why? West had nine points in clubs. If he also held the spade ace, he would have opened the bidding. South should call for dummy’s jack. Yes, West might have stopped playing clubs after two rounds, shifting,
say, to a trump. Declarer should then draw trumps ending in the dummy and call for the club 10. If East had the queen, it would take an iron nerve to play low smoothly. Also, at trick one, East signaled with the club two. If he had had the queen, he probably would have played a higher, encouraging club.

Smart CareCards reveal more personal information TOM FLETCHER Black Press
The replacement for B.C.’s CareCard will provide online access to medical records, and may also be used to confirm B.C. residence and age while keeping other information private. Health Minister Mike de Jong announced the new “smart card” plan in May, saying it will also offer the option of doubling as a driver’s licence. The government is phasing out the existing CareCard, mainly because there are 9.1 million cards in circulation and only 4.5 million residents eligible for the Medical Services Plan. The new cards will have a picture and an electronic chip, and be renewable every five years. Labour, Citizen Services and Open Government Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the government hopes to start issuing them in 2012. Amendments to the information and privacy law now before the legislature would allow secure online access by residents and authorized medical professionals, for prescriptions, lab test results and other health records. They may also be used to confirm student status or age, without releasing other personal information. Probation options expanding Attorney General Shirley Bond has introduced changes to B.C. law that add new sentencing options for street disorder, unsafe driving and other provincial offences. The amendments would allow charges of being drunk in public to be laid under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act instead of the Criminal Code. Offenders could be placed on probation with conditions such as paying for damages, writing an apology and performing community service, and a new offence of breaching a probation order would be available. Probation options are also being added to existing fines and jail terms for serious Motor Vehicle Act offences such as driving without due care. For repeated trespass offences, probation would be available with court-ordered condi-
tions to stay away from a specific area, along with the option of community work service instead of fines.
Forest licences ‘streamlined’ The B.C. government has introduced changes to forest harvest licences
to simplify operations for energy and mining companies, and loosen land use restrictions for private woodlot owners.
The proposed legislation gives Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson authority
to allow woodlot owners to remove private land from woodlot licences. The ministry said in a statement the change will
“provide woodlot owners flexibility in managing their assets in changing economic times, and to plan for retirement.”
