Another arrest in major drug haul ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A third North Okanagan man has been arrested in connection with a major drug investigation with ties to Western Canada and the U.S. Police in Regina made the announcement Tuesday morning in regards to an effort they call Project Faril, in which four men have been arrested, and three of the four in custody as a result of the investigation are from the North Okanagan. The other is from Golden. “As a result of this investigation, 216 kilograms of cocaine was seized by law enforcement agencies as part of Project Faril,” said Sgt. Paul Dawson, Saskatchewan RCMP spokesperson. “A seizure of 151 kilograms near Swift Current, in March of 2010 is also related to this alleged criminal organization. All totalled, 367 kilograms of cocaine was seized, and this represents the largest seizure ever by the Regina Integrated Drug Unit in the province of Saskatchewan.” Police made a significant bust at homes in Coldstream and Silver Star on Oct. 1. The estimated street value fluctuates greatly and is dependent upon many factors, said Dawson. The value of the cocaine would be in the range of $16.5 million. The previously announced seizure of $1 million worth of ecstacy brings the wholesale value of drugs (kilogram) seized to be in the range of $17.5 million. Also seized as part of this investigation was $340,000 in Canadian currency as well

Three North Okanagan men are among four arrested in the biggest drug bust in Saskatchewan history. It includes nearly $1 million worth of ecstacy pills, and $16.5 million in cocaine. as three all-terrain vehicles, two pick-up trucks, one mini-van and firearms. Project Faril is a multi-agency drug investigation first launched in April of 2011. Information learned as a result of this investigation has now led to charges dating back to December of 2009. The project involved more than 100 law enforcement investigators from B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan.
As well, representatives the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Drug Enforcement Agency have been involved in this project. “The significance of this is the model of cooperation we have not achieved before at this scale,” said Chief-Supt. Randy Beck, Saskatchewan’s F Division criminal operations officer. “The co-operation between U.S. agencies
and the RCMP was discussed in Washington last week as a model that incorporated integration, intelligence sharing and operational coordination that we haven’t seen before.” Troy Ernest Swanson, 25, from Coldstream, was arrested Oct. 14, in Vernon. He is charged with importation of cocaine, possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine, participating in a criminal organization and conspiracy to import cocaine. Swanson was returned to Saskatchewan Oct. 18, and first appeared in Regina Provincial Court Oct. 19. Brock Ernest Palfrey, 25, from Silver Star and William Bruce Larsen, 51, of Coldstream, were arrested Oct. 1 in the North Okanagan and originally charged with conspiracy to import cocaine and export ecstacy. The pair are now facing charges of importation of cocaine, possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine, conspiracy to import cocaine and participating in a criminal organization. Dawson said that, according to the Criminal Code, it does not have to be a specific criminal organization (named group) in order to be charged with the offence of participating in a criminal organization. Ronald Charles Learning, 28, from Golden, was arrested in Salmon Arm the weekend of Oct. 1 and was charged with conspiracy to import cocaine and conspiracy to export ecstacy. Swanson, Palfrey and Larson will make their next court appearance today in Swift Current. Learning will be appearing in Swift Current on Nov. 7.

Band prepares for land titles case RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Okanagan First Nations believe they may be close to resolving an ongoing land titles dispute. A B.C. Supreme Court ruling allows the Okanagan Indian Band to proceed with legal action and to openly question the provincial government’s decisionmaking authority on forested land when there has been no formal treaty signed with First Nations. “If there is no cooperation (from the province), that only leaves us with one venue and that’s the court,” said Chief Byron Louis. The dispute between both parties arose when the band began logging at Browns Creek, on the west side of Okanagan Lake, in 1999. The band stated it had the right to harvest trees under aboriginal rights, but the Ministry of Forests issued a stopwork order and commenced a legal action to enforce the order. Various court decisions in favour of the band and the govern-
“Water is front and centre.” — Byron Louis For the Week of October 26 - October 31, 2011 (or while quantities last)
ment have occurred since that time, and the band blocked commercial logging in Browns Creek in 2009. Louis says the band must protect its traditional rights, as well as the natural resources it believes are at risk from some logging practises. “Water is front and centre. Anyone who questions what we’re doing, I tell them to go into the bush and look at the clearcuts,” he said. “What’s the value of their house without water?” Louis adds that band members have been part of the logging industry for generations and they want a seat at the table. “Why would we stop economic development? What we’re concerned about is unsustainable development?” Okanagan Nation Alliance officials are
optimistic about the outcome of the pending legal case. “The province of B.C. is in the awkward position of having to show how they came into title of Okanagan land and of course they’ve got nothing, no deed, no bill of sale, no treaty,” said Grand Chief Stewart Phillip. Louis believes all Okanagan residents should have an interest in the case. “Forty years of industrial logging within the Okanagan watersheds has affected water quality for native and nonnative residents alike,” he said. “As stewards of the land, we will ensure the healing of the forests and the restoration of the creeks that feed our lakes. This will improve the quality of life for all residents of the Okanagan territory.”
Crash sends woman to hospital Morning Star Staff
A Vernon woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries in what West Kelowna RCMP are calling a hit-andrun Saturday. The 27-year-old was driving northbound on Bartley Road, at around 6 p.m., in her Ford Fiesta Coupe and was crossing Highway 97 on a green light when a southbound white pickup truck turned left in front of her car. The collision resulted in major damage to the Fiesta, and the Vernon woman was taken to Kelowna General Hospital. Police officers report the white pickup truck fled the scene immediately after the crash and has not yet been located. RCMP are requesting the public’s help in
identifying the white pickup truck, that would have fresh damage to the front end and front passenger corner. Please forward any

RCMP pursue links in ATM thefts ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
An attempted break-in at a North Okanagan business Monday morning has RCMP looking at similarities with recent crimes. Enderby RCMP were called to Sutherland’s Bakery at 4:30 a.m. Monday after a report of a break-in. “The side door had been smashed and somebody attempted to steal the ATM machine,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “It appears they tried to use a rope to remove the machine but left before it was fully removed from the building.” Police believe a white Chevy Club Cab pick-up may have been involved in the incident, but patrols of the area failed to locate the vehicle. “There have recently been a couple of attempts to steal ATMs or safes from around the area and
we’ve been given a description of a white truck,” said Molendyk. “Whether it’s the same truck, we’re not quite sure but there are similiarities.” An ATM was successfully removed from a store in Coldstream, and someone tried to take out the safe from the Royal York Golf Course clubhouse in Armstrong, but were scared away. In that case, entrance to the clubhouse was gained by smashing a window. Molendyk said he was led to believe that an ATM had been removed from a business in either Salmon Arm or Sicamous, but was not sure of the details in that case. Anybody with any information on the Sutherland’s attempt Monday is asked to call the RCMP, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-4877, or leave a tip on the local Crime Stoppers’ website, www. nokscrimestoppers.com.
Illegal hunting of moose continues ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Three more illegally shot moose have conservation officers asking for the public’s help. A cow moose and two calves were shot and killed near Tappen, in the Shuswap, in the White Lake/ Perry Creek area on the weekend, bringing to 15 the total number of illegal kills in the zone, which encompasses Salmon Arm, Vernon and Kelowna. “Obviously not legitimate hunters,” said Sgt. Josh Lockwood of the killings of the cow and two calves on the weekend. “They were shot and left for no reason, or no reason we know of. We’re not even sure it’s a case of mistaken identity because the two calves, as I understand it, were together. “That would be somebody out indiscriminately
killing wildlife.” Lockwood said of the 15 illegal moose kills in the zone, three investigations have concluded successfully, and two more have persons of interest and remain under investigation. Six moose have illegally been killed in the Shuswap. “Salmon Arm residents are calling our office concerned about the number of moose being shot and left,” said Lockwood. There have been two illegal kills in the Falkland area and five in Kelowna. Anybody with any information on the shootings in the White Lake/Perry Creek area, or on any of the cases, is asked to call 1-877-952-7277, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Formerly a respite for travellers, a familiar building in Vernon is now a guest house for family and friends dealing with illness. We Care Home Health Services purchased the old Tuck Inn Bed and Breakfast at 3101 Pleasant Valley Road, and officially turned it into the Caring House, a home-away-from-home where families and friends can stay while their loved ones receive medical treatment at Vernon Jubilee Hospital or other local care facilities. “It just made perfect sense to me to develop The Caring House,” said Holly Malfair, owner of We Care Home Health Services. “I want to bring patients, family and friends together in health care situations, and provide a relaxing and special place for them to stay.” We Care Home Health Services team members and a group of volunteers manage the facility which will operate as a bed and breakfast. “The house provides a warm, welcoming environment where patients, family and friends can relax, prepare hot meals and share their concerns with nursing professionals or other families,” said Malfair.
“The house provides a warm environment.” — Holly Malfair
The Caring House also welcomes patients that require a place to stay pre- and post-medical treatments. The Caring House has currently applied for non-profit status. Sponsors are being recruited for what will also serve as a business networking alliance that will provide many benefits for participating. Anybody interested in being a sponsor, volunteer or making donations in The Caring House can contact Jennifer Strachan, marketing and business development manager, at 250-542-4970. You can also e-mail Strachan at Jennifer.email@example.com.

Facing the challenge
aking friends is as easy as the click of a mouse these days. Prior to Saturday, Wayne Lippert didn’t have a presence on Facebook but that didn’t stop Vernon’s mayor from making up for lost time. Within a few short hours, he had made the cyber bond with 30 people and the list continued to climb. As of Tuesday morning, Lippert had 109 friends. Now there’s no question that Lippert is a likable guy and he knows how to work a crowd. But his meteoric rise on Facebook has more to do with trying to land a third term as mayor than trading jokes or birthday wishes with old school chums or someone he met in passing at a community event. Many of the comments Richard Rolke on his personal page refer directly to the pending election and wishing him well on the hustings. But Lippert isn’t the only Vernon mayoralty candidate latching on to social media. Rob Sawatzky has 50 people in his Facebook group and nine likes on a FB page. They provide links to a website while also providing details of his platform and making the pitch for campaign donations. Perhaps the most energetic approach comes from Patrick Davies. He has 56 likes on a FB page dedicated specifically to his run for mayor. It includes photos, commentary and responses to questions posed by residents. There’s even links to his website and a YouTube video discussing issues of importance to Vernon. But it’s not just the mayors burning up the information highway. Ruth Hoyte and Brian Quiring have Facebook pages dedicated to getting them elected as Vernon city councillor, while council hopeful Kelly Fehr keeps friends up to date on

his personal page, and if that isn’t sufficient, you can twitter him too. Search Facebook and McEwan4Mayor will put you in touch with Jim McEwan, who wants Lumby’s top job. In Enderby, incumbent Dee Wejr has embraced the technology while Lake Country’s Noreen Guenther and Coldstream’s Maria Besso can also be found there. Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook to rate women, but the applications have ballooned. You can launch social movements, promote a business or reveal life’s little details. It was only a matter of time before political wannabees got on board. It’s an easy way to get your message across to a captive audience, particularly among those wanting to pad their friends’ list. But as much as there are new ways in the world, some of the old methods for campaigning, such as newspaper ads (yes, that was a shameless plug) can still be effective. Particularly, I encourage candidates to select a neighbourhood and go door-knocking. It provides a more meaningful opportunity for residents to express their concerns, while it gives the candidate all important personal recognition on a crowded ballot. The other tried-and-true method is to go where the people are. Given that senior citizens tend to enthusiastically show up at the polls, candidates should be visiting the Schubert Centre, the Halina Centre or their counterparts in the other communities. Technology is a generational thing and while some seniors are on Facebook it’s largely more the domain of the under 40-crowd and their participation in the democratic process unfortunately isn’t worth talking about. For us traditionalists at The Morning Star, election time means we’re churning out hardcopied papers (I associate informational substance with the feel of ink on the hands). But we’re also not dinosaurs. Along with the politicians, look for The Morning Star on the web and Facebook.
Texting and driving can be deadly. Ditto for talking and driving. And even though it’s now against the law, many B.C. motorists still haven’t got the message about distracted driving. Need proof? A recent ICBC-commissioned survey found that half of respondents witnessed other drivers texting and talking on hand-held devices “several times a day.” But it seems nobody really wants to admit it. Only 16 per cent of those same respondents answered yes to using a hand-held while driving over the past year. And those who do get caught red-handed usually have a good excuse. During a September traffic blitz aimed at distracted drivers in B.C., police handed out more than 3,500 tickets and heard plenty of excuses. Recently ICBC distributed a list of the top 10 excuses drivers offered up, which ranged from ludicrous (“But it was an emergency call to my wedding planner!”) to plainly defiant (“This is a bogus law”). But as any traffic cop will tell you, a distracted driver is a dangerous driver. And as smartphones become more ubiquitous and more textweened teens get behind the wheel, the streets will become even more dangerous. So, what will it take to get drivers to put down their cells? Well, new legislation introduced in January 2010, hasn’t led to a perceptible change in drivers’ habits. Here’s a sobering stat that could be used to kick off the next awareness initiative aimed at texting and talking drivers: Every year, distracted driving results in more than 117 deaths and 1,400 serious injuries in this province. See, there really is no excuse for driving distracted. —North Shore Outlook

EDITOR: GLENN MITCHELL
Stirring up debate on tourism
read Joan Spencer’s letter regarding the new Fairfield Inn with interest. This development raises interesting questions about Vernon’s strategy for the tourism industry. Perhaps we need to ask ourselves if we even have one? There are a couple of big questions. One – are we trying to address all segments of the tourism market or just sell to one narrow section of the market? Two – does Vernon want to be in the tourism business? Let me explain what I mean by this. My comments are not intended to be critical of all the hard work that has gone into development projects in Vernon. But I do believe we need to manage development more carefully in future if we want to promote Vernon as a vibrant tourism destination and create lasting employment growth in the sector. Our tourism products aim squarely at the budget-conscious family customer. We seem to be falling over ourselves to accommodate boaters and RV owners from Alberta, who arrive in Vernon loaded with cheap supplies of food, gasoline and beer all bought at home, before they cross the border. Nothing wrong with that business, but the average spend per day for these customers must be at the lower end of the scale. If we look at our accommodations in town or our cultural attractions, what do we have to offer to compete with Delta’s Okanagan Grand resort or the many shops, restaurants and lakefront that are in walking distance of many motels and hotels in central Kelowna or Kamloops’ downtown core? Sparkling Hill and Predator Ridge seem like a step in the right direction, even if they are a fair ways from town. These
ROAD MISCONCEPTIONS I would like to clear up some misconceptions about the narrowing of 20th Street And what some people have conceived as a complaint by residents as the lack of on-street parking Well my friend there are many more issues than the lack of parking. There are homes on 20th Street who have lost their access points to their home because no one stopped to think. There are families who will no doubt have to rethink family traditions – Christmas dinners, Thanksgiving, family get togethers and barbecues because there is no parking – this is a loss of enjoyment of a home. And what about the family with children still at home going to school who have a car and drive? Then there is the issue of safety. Should an emergency arise and an emergency vehicle is parked on 20th Street this vehicle will park in the middle of the street, thus totally blocking the street off so no other vehicle would be able to pass by.
operations attract well-heeled guests and we need to work hard to offer attractions that tempt their guests to spend more of their time and money in Vernon while they are here. If we want to be in the tourism business then, over time, we need to make our wonderful town a more attractive and tempting place to stop in. The northern end offers sprawl, before a sudden transition to the “anytown USA” strip development of 27th Street. If you come in from the south, after a quick flash of green at Polson Park, you are greeted with a strip mall on the right and a bank, a gas station and a discount... There’s nothing wrong with any of these businesses but how do these entrances to our fine city communicate to the visitor the many attractions that Vernon has to offer? How were zoning and development incentives planned to make our city an attractive place in which to stop as you pass through? Or did it all just “happen” with no grand plan in mind?
Not even another fire truck nor a ambulance will be able to pass by. So if a police car beats a fire truck to the scene the response time to set up and respond to say a fire will be slowed because Murphy’s Law, the police car will be in the way parked on the street. I wonder what the Insurance Bureau of Canada or the insurance company will have to say about this? Paved shoulders and standardwidth wide streets have benefits in three important areas: safety, capacity and maintenance. George Serhan BUS BLUES I am writing in response to the article by Richard Rolke titled "UBC transit jam-packed.” I am a first-year university student who bought a bus pass hoping to take the bus daily for many reasons such as cost and the effects on the environment. My friends and I took the bus to UBCO a few times and found it very uncomfortable.
Though the drivers do their best to fill the bus, they are forced to exceed safe seating and standing limits to the point where they have to turn commuters away. For now many of my friends and I are forced to drive daily as we can rarely attain a seat on the bus. The problem is worse than it appears due to many younger students driving alone or with one classmate as following our licence restrictions. The main problematic bus periods are 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. as this is when the vast majority of first-year science student class schedules are built around. To quote Director Wayne Lippert, “[I am] pleased with the Vernon to Kelowna route...”, I feel he should take the 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. bus, just to taste the need for another bus. At the very least a larger bus, such as the double-decker models comfortably transporting commuters in parts of Kelowna, should be used during the peak hours of the UBCO to Vernon route. Spencer Belot
Such ventures don’t all need tax increases and huge investments to get them off the ground. We will have an empty library building soon. Why not move the art gallery from its hiding place under a parking lot and use the additional space as workshops for local artists and the like, so they can sell more product to visitors and drive our local economy? Chasing tourism dollars means hard work and tough choices on development and zoning. And it needs a will to compete and win business away from nearby communities. If we simply choose development proposals based on their short-term generation of construction jobs and increased property taxes, then I am no tourism expert, but I don’t think it’s going to happen! I’m not sure we’re ready to make these calls as a community and I have to agree with Joan Spencer that building another chain hotel sandwiched between a major highway and a backdrop of big box stores on Anderson Way is not the way to go. If I’ve offended you with this letter, my apologies. I intended no slight on anyone but I would like to stir up more debate about tourism in Vernon. It seems to be one of the few industries we can grow here and we need every job for our young people we can create if we want to staunch the flow of talent and energy out of the Valley to the coast or to Alberta. And before you ask, I have absolutely nothing to do with tourism or hospitality or indeed the development business. I am just a resident interested in smart growth that increases opportunity while limiting urban sprawl and further loss of the beauty around us. Ritchie Leslie
STRATEGY NEEDED Never have I read a better, more succinct letter, with respect to the position of the city of Vernon than the one from Joan Spencer. When she says that Vernon is not 'truly a destination' she has identified the true problem with the city. I see businesses/retail outlets closing. I see lost opportunities with the lake which is encircled by apartments/condos/houses thus denying the city any chance of promoting this area as a destination. The only pub on Okanagan Lake is closing until next spring. The city must invest in new opportunities which will draw more people into the city and not just re-arrange what it has. The city of Vernon seems to be dying on its feet. Come on councillors, get a strategy for Vernon that will give us a thriving vibrant city and utilize the natural amenities that we have. Use the lake to the city's advantage and take your share of 'destination' revenue. Veronica Carlton

Compensation sought for tenants RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
The City of Vernon hopes to leverage more support for people relocated by development. There are plans for a 37-unit seniors-oriented apartment in the 3900 block of 30th and 29th avenues, and council wants the developer to consider increased compensation for the about 36 tenants of the former motel and three houses currently on the site. “I am concerned about the relocation of these people,” said Coun. Bob Spiers. “Hopefully staff will come back with the possibility of requiring more compensation. I want to know if it’s legal.” Spiers says it may be possible to pursue compensation beyond one month’s rent. Some of the tenants have stated they may have difficulties finding new homes they can afford. “Vacancy rates are higher but affordability is still high,” said Coun. Buffy Baumbrough, adding that rent has not

The city’s affordable housing committee will also review the broad issue of housing being lost through redevelopment. Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe was opposed to asking the developer to provide more assistance to the tenants. “We have clear laws provincially on what’s required (for compensation),” she said. “Now is not the time for the city to set a precedent to increase demands. We should
not be encumbering people when they are investing in the city.” Representatives for the property owner — Mayfield Homes — have previously stated that provincial legislation provides for moving costs for tenants impacted by redevelopment and it determines the timeline for eviction notice. Council has approved third reading of bylaws that would allow the seniors-oriented development to move ahead. Final approval is still required.

Entering the lucrative convention market may be on Vernon’s radar. City council has instructed the economic development committee to consider establishing a task force to determine if a convention centre is needed. “We would do preliminary research on existing facilities and the competition in Kelowna, Kamloops and Penticton and what’s available,” said Kevin Poole, economic development manager. The prospect that a convention centre would bolster tourism has been a recurring theme at focus sessions held by the economic development department.
“We would do preliminary research.” — Kevin Poole Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe wants assurances that the private sector is involved in the process, and specifically development of a centre with the city. “The public purse can’t afford the whole thing,” she said of construction. Some reluctance comes from Coun. Shawn Lee who wonders if Vernon would draw conferences. “Penticton has an airport and Kelowna has an airport,” he said. “Our airport would
not bring international visitors to our community.” Mayor Wayne Lippert, though, pointed out that Vernon is 30 to 40 minutes from Kelowna International Airport. “Compared to parts of Kelowna, we’re closer to the airport,” he said. Coun. Bob Spiers wants any task force to look at Wesbild Centre. “That was proposed to be utilized as a convention centre. Why isn’t that suitable?” he said.

Homelessness remains local issue RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Progress has been made in reducing tent cities, but residents and politicians are being urged not to become complacent over homelessness. The Cool Team, a group of agencies focused on homelessness, says the number of people living on the street has dropped significantly since 2006. “This doesn’t mean, though, that we don’t have homelessness,” said Annette Sharkey, Social Planning Council executive director. “We need to keep working around the affordable housing issue.” One step that is being taken is to develop a package that provides developers with infor-
“Our community was in chaos...” — Annette Sharkey mation on available land and guidelines for affordable units. Research in 2006 indicated there were 200 homeless people in Vernon. “Our community was in chaos around homelessness,” said Sharkey. “Within the city centre and parks, residents were feeling unsafe.” The situation escalated in the summer of 2007 when a tent city took shape along 32nd Street downtown. That led to some temporary shelters being created,
and the Gateway shelter opening permanently in the fall of 2008. The Cool Team began in early 2009 to connect the homeless to services and to address public concerns. “It’s amazing what we can do when we all work together as a team,” said Rachael Zubick, with Community Policing, one of the team’s partners. In June 2009, there were 30 homeless camps in Vernon and that dropped to seven in June 2011. Crime, drug activity, prostitution
and alcohol offences have also decreased. No drug paraphernalia was found in downtown alleys this summer — the first time in a decade. “Our files are decreasing across the board. We’re not just shoving them around,” said Zubick of finding places to live for the homeless. At the Gateway shelter, 638 men stayed there in 2010 and it’s projected there will be 746 men this year (344 to date). There have been 112 female clients so far this year and it’s projected the total number could be 243 by Dec. 31.

come stereotypes. Maytée Ferrigno is with employment assistance services at VDISS and she said a number of plans are in the works to support the project. “There are 14 different groups throughout B.C. working on this project, and we are the only one in the Okanagan,” she said. Supported by the Social Planning Council of the North Okanagan, The First Nations Friendship Centre, the Punjabi Heritage Society, Trinity United Church and Saint James Catholic Church, the project is organized by a steering committee made up of a number of community leaders from a number of faith traditions. “It’s made up of individuals who want to be hands-on, such as those from the Baha’i faith, Hindi, different Christian denominations,” said Ferrigno. “We’re not doing too badly in

Vernon, but there are still many things we could improve. “There are many people who are still afraid to be open about their faith and their practices and many people still don’t discuss their faith. We want to provide more knowledge of different faiths, we want to get to know different people, and be able to ask those questions, such as ‘why do you wear a cross,’ ‘why do you wear a turban,’ and that kind of thing.” Some of the projects in the works so far include a new inter-faith brochure, art dialogue workshops led by interfaith facilitators and an all-day celebration with the larger community. For mother-of-three Ferrigno, working on this type of project has special meaning for her. She left her native Guatemala 25 years ago, arriving in Winnipeg, Man. with her husband and expecting their first child. “I left my family and my culture and my career as an electrical engineer and I work with many people here who have had that same experience of not being able to work in their chosen profession.” The Inter-Faith Bridging project is funded by Embrace B.C., a provincial government initiative to promote multiculturalism and eliminate racism by providing funding opportunities for community-based antiracism and multiculturalism projects. “If we could at least make some friendships, that would be a big start,”

Maytée Ferrigno is one of the organizers of the Inter-Faith Bridging project at Vernon and District Immigrant Services Society. said Ferrigno. “This is not about converting people, it’s about understanding where they’re coming from, so our goal is to foster new relationships and friendship, to foster understanding, dispelling myths, and also to awaken a desire to continue this growth, so that even if funding stops, we have got the ball rolling.”
She said the process will begin with a series of art workshops in January and February led by people from different faith communities who are willing to share their talents. “It’s a way to get people talking, to promote dialogue, so once we have people who are willing to give the work-

City insists road widths unchanged after work RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
The City of Vernon is trying to alleviate perceptions that roads are getting narrower. Some residents believe the vehicle
portion of roads have been trimmed when bicycle paths are added but officials say there’s only a visual difference when going from a shoulder to curbs. “The lane widths
“The lane widths are still the standard widths.” — Leon Gous are still the standard
lane widths,” said Leon Gous, chief administrative officer.
Coun. Jack Gilroy frequently hears complaints.
“People wonder why we dig up a bigger road and put back a smaller one,” he said, adding that some residents question whether fire trucks and snowplows will be able to use roads they consider narrower.
C HECK I T O UT AT B OOKLAND THE VIRGIN CURE T much-anticipated follow-up to the The phenomenon that is The Birth House, The VVirgin Cure secures Ami McKay’s place as one of our most beguiling storytellers. “I am Moth, a girl from the lowest part of Chrystie Street, born to a slum-house mystic and the man who broke her heart.” So begins The Virgin Cure, a novel set in the tenements of lower Manhattan in the year 1871. As a young child, Moth’s father smiled, tipped his hat and walked away from her forever. The summer she turned 12, her mother sold her as a servant to a wealthy woman, with no intention of ever seeing her again. These betrayals lead Moth to the wild, murky world of the Bowery, ﬁlled with house-thieves, pickpockets, beggars, sideshow freaks and prostitutes, where eventually she meets Miss Everett, the owner of a brothel simply known as “The Infant School.”

“We need to show the plan because there’s been a lot of hostility over bike lanes.” City staff insist that many roads can be realigned to allow for bicycle paths while also keeping the vehicle portion at a minimum width of 3.2 metres. “Many roads were built on the philosophy of the time,” said Ed Stranks, engineering development services manager, referring to the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s. “The thought was you drive your car and that’s it. It predates bicycle paths and other transportation methods.” Stranks believes redesigning roads can bolster the sense of community in neighbourhoods. “A lot of areas are residential and need to be better suited for residential and not thoroughfares,” he said. “People don’t have to be so afraid to go see their neighbour because there’s a sea of asphalt.” According to city staff, bicycle paths will be installed where it makes sense. “We need to connect them so cyclists have a network but they won’t be on every street,” said Amanda Watson, a transportation technician.

Community rallies for family ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Support continues to build for an Armstrong mother dealing with unfathomable tragedy. Darice Keating lost her two kids, Ava-Mae Claassen, five, and Austin Claassen, four, in a motorhome fire near Lytton Oct. 12, and her mom, Rhonda, and Rhondaâ€™s husband, Doug Willment, remain in Royal Inland Hospital in Kelowna as a result of the fire. Valley First Credit Union has now collected more than $10,000 in donations. â€œThese donations have come from individuals and community groups that have rallied to support the family,â€? said David Kropp, a corporate communications specialist for the credit union. Rhonda Keating has worked at Valley First for the past 20 years, and thatâ€™s where a trust fund for the family. Valley First pledged to match donations up to $10,000. Contributions to the Keating Trust fund (account number 799015-201) can still be made at any of the 16 branches of Valley First in the region. â€œThis tragedy has impacted the community big-time,â€? said Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper at the cityâ€™s regular council meeting Monday. Friends are also rallying around the family, staging benefit
â€œThis tragedy has impacted the community.â€? â€” Chris Pieper events throughout the North Okanagan to offer their support. Susie Helland has helped organize a fundraising walk in the childrenâ€™s memory. The walk will be held at Polson Park in Vernon on Saturday at 9 a.m. Registration is $15 per person or $40 per family, with donations going to support the childrenâ€™s mother. Memorial T-shirts â€” with the childrenâ€™s pictures on them â€” donated by Urban Rebel clothing will also be available for sale. The Junction Cafe in Armstrong will host a live auction from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, and a balloon release will take place at 3 p.m.
A $20 dance and silent auction at Monasheeâ€™s Bar and Grill will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3, featuring The Goods.

Crane removes boats from lake JENNIFER SMITH
were returned to the water. While fewer owners used the crane this spring to return their vessels to the lake, Williams isn’t sure if the slow start to summer played a part in the numbers. Despite the rainy start, the club enjoyed great weather for the annual Charity Regatta in early June – where $23,000 was raised for the local United Way. That brings the 10-year total raised to just shy of $300,000 from the club – the largest single fundraiser for the local United Way. “Though the summer wasn’t what we are used to around here it made for much better wind conditions for our weekly sailing races when during the summer we usually have very little,” said Williams.
Morning Star Staff
Boating season is officially coming to an end on Okanagan Lake. The Vernon Yacht Club marks the end of summer with its annual fall Crane Day Nov. 12. The public is invited to come watch as boats are hoisted out of the water by a crane so their owners can prepare them for the winter slumber. “Typically the crane is up and running, lifting the first boats out by 8:30 and it’s usually all done by noon or shortly thereafter,” said Craig Williams, the club’s director of publicity and marketing. Last fall 27 boats were lifted from the water (25 sailboats and two power boats). This spring 21 boats

Popular summer camp into round two of contest Morning Star Staff
A camp that has opened its doors to generations of children continues to seek com-
munity support. Camp Hurlburt in Vernon finished 15th in round one of the Aviva Community Fund ini-
tiative, and the camp is now trying again in round two to finish in the top 10 ideas before Nov. 9. The goal is to
raise $149,000 to redevelop the waterfront property. “We hope that all of you who have been
voting, will continue to vote in round two,” said Jennifer Yeo, with the Camp Hurlburt Association.
“Those of you who have not yet registered as a voter, please go to www.avivacommunityfund.org to register.
Get big entertainment for the whole family with Optik TV and Internet. Plus, get a free HD PVR rental and HP laptop when you sign up.* TM
You get 15 votes, one vote per day. Please vote every day. Rebuild Camp Hurlburt is idea ACF10943.” Hurlburt has been in operation for 80 years and more than 20,000 youth have been part of the camp over the years. “These young people learn about the sacredness of their own lives and of creation at weeklong camps through experiences such as kayaking, canoeing, swimming, music, drama, nightly camp fires and arts and crafts,” said Yeo. “But the buildings are old and the facilities are in desperate need of upgrading. Please join us in rebuilding Camp Hurlburt so more children, youth and the North Okanagan community can experience a connection with nature and each other that leads to positive change in their lives.” Phase one of the redevelopment project will include demolition of the existing craft hall and cabins, some site work and the construction of four to six new cabins. “With Aviva’s help, this will take place during 2012,” said Yeo. “In order to finish in the top 10, we need the community’s help. Ask family, friends and neighbours to show their support, ask them to do the same with their friends.” For more information about the Camp Hurlburt Association, contact Jennifer Yeo at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 250-306-0938, or go to www.camphurlburt. com.

It’s still rock ’n’ roll to MACE Vernon’s veteran rockers still have fans listening to the music after 30 years ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
The newly formed top-40 cover band hired to play its first gig Saturday, Oct. 3, 1981, at the Enderby Drill Hall, had a dilemma. Tickets were being printed and the band that would call itself MACE –– and do so, off and on, for the next 30 years –– didn’t have a name. “We had a rehearsal and we said ‘let’s each bring four or five band names and pick.’ I wanted Four on the Floor but Gary (bass player Moore) said ‘what about MACE?’” recalled Jackson Mace, the band’s co-founder. The top-40 cover band had been hired by the Enderby Merchants hockey club to play a dance to raise funds for the Terry Fox Run. “We had just enough songs to get by,” said Mace, who believes The Doobie Brothers’ Listen To The Music was the first song the band played. “A lot of people came up afterwards and said what a great band we were. We didn’t feel like a great band yet. We were a new band, and I hope a good band, but certainly not a great band.” Fast-forward 30 years, and three-quarters of that original MACE lineup –– Jackson Mace, lead vocals/guitar, Jeff Gamble, lead guitar/vocals, and Gary Moore, bass/vocals –– still have people up dancing and “listening to the music.” Joined now on drums by Don Redgwell, MACE is preparing to play their Halloween Howl dance at their new home base, the Elks Hall, Friday night. Sitting in a local pub after nine holes of golf, Mace, a retired elementary school teacher, reflected about the beginnings of the popular dance band. He had moved to Vernon in the summer of 1981 from Fraser Lake, 40 minutes west of Vanderhoof, in B.C.‘s central Interior, where he spent three years in his first job, teaching Grade 5 at Fraser Lake Elementary-Secondary School and coaching Grade 8 boys basketball. He had also played in a four-piece band, Tarkheena, named after the drummer’s Husky dog. The bass player was a high school student and both the drummer and other guitar player worked at the local Shop Easy grocery store. With no job yet with the Vernon school district, Mace rehearsed a solo act with his guitar and small amplifier in his room at the Tel-A-Frend Motel, “for something to fall back on in case I didn’t get a teaching job.” He also put an ad up on the wall of Terry Dyck’s Music Store in downtown Vernon: “Singer/ guitar player looking for like-minded guys to form top-40 band.” Moore answered the ad. “He phoned and said it sounds like we could put something
A lot of memories have been collected as Vernon band MACE celebrates 30 years of churning out good ol’ rock ’n’ roll. The band scares up more good times as it plays its annual Halloween Howl at the Elks Hall Friday. together,” said Mace. Moore and drummer Steve Johnstone were coming out of playing with another popular local group, Shakewood Annie, and Moore was certain he could recruit a man in Gamble who he called “the best guitar player in Vernon.” “Gary called Jeff and he came to our next rehearsal,” said Mace. “I had about a half-dozen songs that I could sing and Gary had a few. It gelled pretty nicely. We realized we had three guys who could sing and Jeff was a terrific guitar player. It just seemed to work.” MACE would end up as regulars at The Green pub in the Village Green Hotel, playing six nights a week once a month or so in front of large crowds. They would play what is now Club 29/29, numerous dances for a variety of clubs and organizations, and were the original Funtastic band before the slo-pitch event became a huge tournament and music festival.
The crowds were large and they loved dancing. In 1983, Mace left the band. “I had a job, a wife and I wanted to settle down. They wanted to give the road a shot,” said Mace. Life on the road didn’t work out and Moore and Gamble returned to the North Okanagan to form another successful band called OTC. Mace had settled down and, in life’s little twists of irony, moved in beside Redgwell, a drummer and fellow teacher. It was Redgwell who Mace edged out for his first teaching job in Vernon at Coldstream Elementary. “And he never lets me forget that,” laughed Mace. Redgwell and Mace talked music. Redgwell had played in a very popular group called Starship and had a guitar playing friend, Greg Woodbury, from California. So with Mace in tow, they formed a trio called The Labels, and they played parties and venues at Silver Star and Big White. OTC had broken up and, again, Mace received a phone call from Moore and Gamble about reviving MACE. Now involved with the Powerhouse Theatre on a regular basis, Mace would get back together off and on with his original band mates and new drummer Gordie Mitchell to play some gigs. In 2007, they reunited once more for a 40th birthday party for Paul Moore (Gary’s son). Paul had grown up with the band and sat in on some gigs playing saxophone. The day after the party, Gary was back on the phone to Mace. “Wanna get back together?” MACE played a reunion show at Sneakers Pub in the Village Green, their former unofficial home, which drew a crowd so large people had to walk sideways to get around. Redgwell joined MACE a couple of years ago and since then the popular North Okanagan foursome has revived the idea of the community dance at their new home, the Elks Hall. Besides the Halloween Howl this week, MACE will play several fundraising events and private functions throughout the year, including their new Winter Carnival event “Canucks Rock!” As they celebrate their 30-year anniversary this month, Mace takes a moment to ponder the band’s history and all of the times they stopped and started again. “It’s amazing to me that the three of us, and now Don, have gotten along as well as we have for all these years,” said Mace. “I can’t remember any significant fights or arguments. Bands often deal with egos but that’s never been a problem. It’s also been a blessing that our wives have always been super supporters of our band lives. “When everything’s clicking and the crowd is really into it, there’s no better feeling,” added Mace who with the band will perform an original song entitled Where I Belong, written in praise of living and playing music in the Okanagan. The title will ring true when MACE plays the Halloween Howl Friday at the Elks Hall. The dance starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance at The Bean Scene coffee house, or $15 at the door.
Find out why these comedians claim to be ‘Best in the West’ Morning Star Staff
Looking to get your funny bone tickled? The Best of the West Comedy Tour brings the talents of comedians Damonde Tschritter, Paul Myrehaug and Toby Hargrave together on one stage for an unforgettable night of stand-up comedy, Friday, Nov. 4 at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. The charisma of these three funnymen will send the audience into contagious fits of laughter with three separate solo acts as well as some cross-over jokes peppered throughout.
Damonde Tschritter, left, Paul Myrehaug and Toby Hargrave bring their Best of the West Comedy Tour to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Nov. 4. Best of the West is not your typical stand-up routine. Tschritter,
Myrehaug and Hargrave feed off each other’s energy, heightening
each collaborative performance for a unique, engaging and spontaneous experience. “We do sometimes do jokes and different sketches together as part of the performance,” said Myrehaug. “Touring with three guys is almost like being in a band, but with way less groupies.” All veterans of the Canadian comedy scene, Myrehaug has entertained troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Kosovo and was the winner of the 2007 Yuk Yuk’s Great Canadian Laugh
Off, while Tschritter was the first Canadian winner of the 2006 Seattle International Comedy Competition, and Hargrave was voted funniest comic in Vancouver at the 2005 International Vancouver Comedy Festival. “The other boys from the Best of the West are dear, dear friends of mine,” said Myrehaug. “We’ve known each other, toured together and have been friends for close to 10 years... I’ve learned a ton from both of these guys.”

Brilliant ‘soundscape’ opens OSO season
t’s not often that a theatre audience applauds the moment they see the set, but on Sunday at the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra’s season opening concert they did just that. The curtain-up revealed the orchestra way off to the rear of the stage, lit like night in a forest, as though distant torches glowed through the trees, gorgeously reflected off the Performing Arts Centre’s dance surface. Six dancers came through the auditorium doors, and began a graceful rotation in front of the orchestra.
Thus started the much heralded world ballet premiere in Kelowna and Vernon of The Falcon’s Trumpet, resulting from a threeyear collaboration between the OSO and Ballet Kelowna. The music, described by composer R. Murray Schafer as a soundscape, was all around us, with more musicians above us in all four of the Kings’ boxes. Written as a concerto for trumpet, this was wonderfully modern. Jim Elderton (I’m no expert, but Shostakovitz came to mind.) Nor am I a ballet expert (in fact I usually avoid them), but it worked beautifully –– the dance and the music were totally symbiotic. Choreography was by David LaHay (founding artistic director of Ballet Kelowna) who has created many original works. This was a triumphant adaptation to an existing concert piece. Credit must also go to the lighting designer Tom Bradshaw, Kelowna Ballet’s production manager, adding beautiful visual touches to movement and music, occasionally even ignoring the dancers in favour of the musicians. Soloing on trumpet, with searing bird calls from the darkness, was Guy Few from Toronto, performing in Vernon for the second time. Costumed for this performance as the falconer of the title (“That’s my vision from Toronto”), he has premiered numerous works by Canadian composers through the CBC, the Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council. Described by Montreal’s Le Devoir as “outrageously gifted,” he’s won several awards including a Grammy.

This celebrity studded night also included the composer himself. Schafer, who invented the word “soundscape” (confirmed by Wikipedia), worked in the ‘70s on acoustic ecology at Simon Fraser University. Growing interest in this research led to the formation of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology in 1994. The forum has influenced countless composers world-wide and has had significant influence on Schafer’s own environmental pieces. Composer of more than 90 works, many of them environmental, he loves opportunities for greater audience participation and awareness, both aurally and visually. Asked how he felt to have his piece adopted for ballet, Schafer told me that it came as no surprise. “But the question is, how are you going to make it work? It’s the kind of piece that exists between See… dance and music. Here both were of equal strength, especially as the musicians were GREAT not relegated to the pit,” he CHRISTMAS GIFT said.

Stuart Laughton, a member of the Wolf Project for many years, and who shared with Schafer a love for the Canadian wilderness. “Most of the work was written while I was giving a course at the University of Strasbourg, and I have no doubt that my nostalgia for the Canadian lakes and forests strongly influenced the conception of this piece,” said Schafer, adding, “I was trying to catch something of the spacious resonance when a trumpet plays across a lake at dawn or sunset, causing the whole forest to echo and vibrate.” The first half of the evening featured three more nature pieces: Quiet City by Aaron Copland, and Gli Uccelli (The Birds) by Ottorino Respighi. And we started with Cantus Arcticus (Song of the Arctic, subtitled Concerto for Birds and Orchestra) by Einojuhani Rautavaara, Finland’s most widely heard composer since Sibelius. He had hiked through forests and marshlands, recording bird songs and choosing “soloists” for his concerto. This time we really did get a soundscape – bird recordings came and went, beautifully balanced against the orchestra.

Arts Smart thriller gets its due Vernon Film Society
A gala presentation at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, the Vernon Film Society’s next presentation is The Debt, a fast-paced political thriller. Directed by John Madden, it offers tight plotting, international intrigue, and conflict where the stakes are life, death, and the honour of a nation. In 1997, three veterans of Israel’s secret service, including Rachel (Helen Mirren), return to a hero’s welcome. Rachel’s daughter has just written a book about the threesome’s most famous exploit, the hunting down and extermination of a notorious Nazi war criminal. The book brings the episode back into the spotlight, making fellow agent David (Ciaran Hinds, There Will Be Blood) uneasy. Soon cracks appear in the official story and Rachel is pressed into completing the operation after the target of the mission claims to be alive. Sam Worthington (Avatar) and Jessica Chastain (Tree of Life) are wonderful as the young David and Rachel, while Tom Wilkinson (The Ghost Writer) is a pleasure to watch as the ruthless spymaster. But it is Mirren who stands out, giving full range to both the icy discipline of a secret agent and the conflicted emotions of a mother. As Claudia Puig of USA Today says, “With its blend of taut action and profound revelations, The Debt is defi-

Family meals a help
DOUG ROGERS Substance Abuse Prevention Counsellor
A new study has shown that family meals together lower rates of risky behavior in teenagers. In fact, family dinners together have a myriad of benefits: ■ Teens who have dinner with their families five or more nights per week are 32 per cent more likely to have never
tried cigarettes, 45 per cent more likely to never have tried alcohol and 24 per cent more likely to never have smoked marijuana compared to teens who had family dinners twice a week or less. ■ Teens who have dinner with their families five or more times a week are nearly twice as likely to receive A’s in school compared to the teens who ate with their families two or fewer times
a week. ■ Children who reported eating three or more meals a week with their family were significantly more likely to report their parents were proud of them. ■ Adolescents who eat regular family meals together consume more vegetables, calcium-rich foods, dietary fiber and essential nutrients.
Another finding revealed that by making family dinner a priority, families with teenagers enhance child-parent communication and ultimately promote healthy adolescent development. The authors of the study urged families to turn the television off, put all cellphones away and for parents not to use the sit-down meal as an opportunity to nag or scold.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Unless you have a good attitude about your work, it isnâ€™t likely youâ€™ll do a good job. The end result of an assignment you resent doing will reflect your malice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You donâ€™t want to be wasteful or foolish with any of your possessions or resources. You may have to say no to someone who is a friend but is known to have trouble handling funds.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Instead of trying to be the center of attention or making sure the spotlightâ€™s centered on you, relax and let your friends showboat a bit. They will like you more if you give them a chance to strut their stuff.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Should you start to lose your position in a partnership arrangement, itâ€™s time to bow out. Once it becomes onesided, it will be valueless.

That bread you cast on the waters in hopes of drawing good things to you and your loved ones will come back to you thrice over in coming months. Those who believe in you will do what they can to help further your cause.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Thereâ€™s a chance that an endeavor that has been rather fortunate for you is now starting to lose some of its luster. When its promise begins to outweigh what it can deliver, itâ€™s time to call it quits. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you start searching for faults in others, others will suddenly examine you closely, as well. When dealing with friends or family, more tolerance and understanding is required. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Taking charge of a situation that is beginning to flounder is clearly the best thing to do, but carrying things to extremes is asking for more trouble. Recognize the difference. ARIES (March 21-April 19) If you think you can pick apart another personâ€™s opinion and not be challenged, youâ€™re in for a big surprise. Youâ€™d be smart to simply accept what others have to say. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Donâ€™t leave something in the hands of another that, if handled poorly, could cost you a bundle of money. Indifference to this matter will have you paying the proverbial piper. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) More strain than usual could arise in a valued relationship over an issue that each party believes affects him or her personally. Both of you will be more protective than cooperative.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If everything turns out great, you could be the first one to step up and take a bow. Conversely, if things go wrong, youâ€™re likely to be the first one pointing a finger. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Do not embellish the facts about what youâ€™ve accomplished recently just because youâ€™re in the presence of a known achiever. Itâ€™s likely to produce the opposite impression of the one youâ€™d like to make.

Bridge by Phillip Alder One suit to play; two ways to do it Groucho Marx said, “Your eyes shine like the pants of my blue serge suit.” Your partner’s eyes will shine if you ﬁnd the right play on this deal, regardless of your dress sense. You are in three no-trump. West leads the heart queen. What would you do? North should respond two clubs, not two notrump (assuming it would be natural and gameforcing, not the Jacoby Forcing Raise), with those powerless hearts. You might rebid two no-trump, but with that uncertain diamond holding, three clubs cannot be criticized. But after North shows
values in diamonds, you have an easy three-notrump continuation. You start with eight top tricks: one spade, two hearts, three diamonds and two clubs. You would need to be very lucky to gain an extra trick from spades in time. (Yes, you can establish a long spade, but you will have lost too many tricks well before you get to cash that ﬁfth spade.) The best place to go for winner number nine is clubs. If the suit is splitting 3-2 (a 67.8 percent chance), you will have no trouble. But you should also try to accommodate some 4-1 splits. After taking the ﬁrst trick with your king (or ace), play a club to
dummy’s king. When East drops the queen, do not cash dummy’s ace. Instead, lead a low club to your nine. A club trick must be lost whatever the layout, and this line handles J-10-7 remaining in the West hand. He takes your nine with his 10, but you can ﬁnesse dummy’s eight on the third round.

Interior Health begins administering flu shots Morning Star Staff
Flu clinics across the Interior Health Authority region have begun. According to IHA, getting a flu shot is one of the best ways to protect yourself from the sniffles, fever, aches
and pains that accompany the flu. “People can spread the influenza virus before they show any symptoms at all,” said Dr. Rob Parker, medical health officer. ”That’s why it is very important to wash
“If you’re feeling sick, stay home.” — Dr. Rob Parker your hands throughout the day - espe-
cially after sneezing, or coughing as well as
before and after visiting daycares, hospitals or health care facilities. And if you are feeling sick stay home to avoid exposing others to the virus.” Influenza spreads easily from person to person through cough-

ing, sneezing, face-toface contact and by touching surfaces such as door knobs and telephones that have been contaminated with the virus. Influenza is the leading cause of preventable death due to infectious disease in Canada, killing thousands of Canadians every year and hospitalizing thousands more. Seniors, infants under two and people with chronic illness are most at risk from complications that can result from the flu. “The flu shot is a safe, effective way to reduce your chances of getting influenza and if you do get the flu it will reduce the severity of your symptoms,” said Parker. “If you aren’t eligible for the free clinics, you can still get a flu shot. Check with your pharmacist or doctor to find out about getting vaccinated.” Flu shots are available at free flu clinics for: ■ People 65 years and older and their caregivers/household contacts; ■ Children and adults with chronic health conditions and their household contacts; ■ Children and adolescents (6 months to 18 years) with con-
ditions treated for long periods of time with Acetylsalicylic acid and their household contacts; ■ Adults who are very obese; ■ Aboriginal people; ■ Healthy children age 6-23 months ■ Household contacts and caregivers of infants age 0-23 months; ■ Pregnant women who will be in their third trimester during influenza season and their household contacts (pregnant women who are in other high risk groups can be immunized at any time during the pregnancy); ■ Residents of nursing homes and other chronic care facilities; ■ Health care and other care providers in facilities and community settings who are capable of transmitting influenza to those at high risk of influenza complications; ■ People who work with live poultry and/ or swine. To find a flu clinic near you, visit www.interiorhealth.ca and click on the 2011-2012 flu clinic button, or call your local public health office (look under Interior Health in the blue pages of your phone book for your local health unit).

Sports B Snakes make most of matinee EDITOR: Kevin Mitchell s s SPORTS VERNONMORNINGSTARCOM
KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor
Game 4 of the World Series was on TV. It was a gorgeous sunny October day. Both teams were battling bus cramps and sleep deprivation. All the symptoms for one of those B.C. Hockey League Sunday snoozers at Wesbild Centre. Instead, the announced crowd of 1,300 witnessed one of the best tilts of the year with the Vernon Vipers holding back the stubborn Prince George Spruce Kings 4-3 in a 4 p.m. matinee. â€œI was surprised with the pace out there and it was a great game,â€? said Viper winger Marcus Basara, who scored once. â€œPG has a good team this year. They surprised me. Theyâ€™ve got that one line that does a lot of the damage and their d-men can all contribute. They can beat you on any night and it was good for us to come out with the two points.â€? The Vipers, who rallied to stop the host Trail Smoke Eaters 6-3 Saturday night, improved to 9-3, while the Spruce Kings fell to 6-5-0-1. Prince George, 6-2 losers to the Warriors the night before in Westside, share fourth spot in the Interior Conference with the Merritt Centennials. First star Darren Nowick supplied his ninth and 10th goals of the season, while Colton Sparrow (4th) completed the Viper offence. Michael Colantone, Josh Gray and Jujhar Khaira replied for the Spruce Marcus Basara Kings, who recorded a rarity, outshooting Vernon at home (33-31). â€œThey have a better team than they had last year by far and it was a good challenge,â€? said Viper d-man Max Mowat, who carried the puck with authority and drew two assists. â€œBecause only four teams make the playoffs, everybodyâ€™s turning it on so you see everybodyâ€™s best games. Even early in the seasons, guys are going Max Mowat hard like itâ€™s playoffs.â€? The Spruce Kings gave up powerplay goals to Nowick and Basara to fall behind 3-2 midway through the second period. â€œWe didnâ€™t play a full 60 tonight,â€? said Prince George monster, grizzly bearded blueliner Ben Woodley, who looks like heâ€™s 30. â€œWe made a couple of key turnovers and that canâ€™t happen if we want to be a championship team this year. We didnâ€™t tighten up down low, basically.â€? Woodley, who says the Spruce Kings â€“ who entertain Vernon Friday night â€“ simply get used to all the road miles, isnâ€™t surprised by the teamâ€™s early-season success. â€œWe know we have a skilled team in here and we know that we work hard and we can be a top team as long as we learn to play a full 60 minutes,â€? said the native of London, Ont. Nowick went forehand, backhand, roof daddy after a feed by Mike Zalewski, for the winner with 2:06 remaining. â€œI thought we played them straight up,â€? said Spruce Kingsâ€™ head coach Dave Dupas. â€œEven up, I think the chances were pretty equal. We made a couple of poor decisions with the puck, one on the backcheck and one on a turnover just inside their blueline which turned back into a 2-on-1 on us and thatâ€™s

Hockey League action Sunday afternoon at Wesbild Centre. the game. Weâ€™re a young team and we have to learn those are decisions we canâ€™t make if we wanna go far in this league.â€? Nowick opened the scoring early in the first when he deftly deflected Mowatâ€™s point shot with four seconds left in a powerplay. Zalewski drew the other assist. Colantone, an Arizona product who pretty much won the lottery when he landed on the leagueâ€™s premier line with Khaira and Paul DeJersey after being traded by the Victoria Grizzlies, equalized when he beat Kirby Halcrow top shelf, in tight, after a feed by DeJersey. Sparrow finished off a 2-on-1 with Alex Hagen into an empty net as Prince George goalie Kirk Thompson was focused on Hagen. Basara got his second snipe of the season on a powerplay seven minutes later, burying a rebound into another empty net after a point blast by Mowat. Basara, who struck the post with eight minutes left in the third, was beginning to feel like Nowick has somehow cursed his composite stick. â€œItâ€™s good to finally get one there,â€? said the Coquitlam product. â€œIâ€™ve had tons of chances in the last few games here and itâ€™s tough when youâ€™re battling for just a goal. I kept telling myself that once I get one, theyâ€™ll keep coming. It was good to kind of get a gift there today.â€? Basara and Nowick were actually discussing snipe slumps
earlier in the game. â€œI keep that (Nowickâ€™s skid last year) in mind. We laughed about my slump on the bench today. He said, â€˜Go 37 games and then come and talk to me.â€™ And you look at him this year with 10 goals. Heâ€™s doing good. Itâ€™s just the way the game goes. As tough as it is when itâ€™s happening, when youâ€™re in a slump, itâ€™ll come and now Iâ€™m looking to build off that and moving forward.â€? Mowat was happy to see Basara bag a big goal. â€œThatâ€™s good for his confidence. I got a helper on that one so he can thank me later.â€? Woodley moved down low and hit affiliate Josh Gray in the slot, where Gray converted with a high wrister, pulling Prince George within one at 11:55 of the second. With Thompson on the bench for a sixth attacker, Khaira scored on a scramble with 28 seconds to play.

0ANTHER OFFENCE SPUTTERS IN VARSITY LOSS TO 4ITANS Morning Star Staff
The VSS Panthers had trouble translating red zone into end zone as they fell 20-0 to the host South Kamloops Titans in Southern Interior Varsity Football League action Friday. Scoreless after the first quarter, South Kam collected a safety in the second quarter, followed by a 45-yard touchdown pass on the final play of the half to make it 8-0. With the Panthers pressing for the end zone in the third quarter, the Titans came up with a timely interception and ran it back 105 yards for a TD.
â€œOur red zone offence cost us the game as we got there five times and came away with nothing,â€? said VSS head coach Sean Smith. â€œWe werenâ€™t able to capitalize on the opportunities we were given and shot ourselves in the foot with stupid penalties and turnovers.â€? South Kamloops capped the scoring in the final quarter by recovering a VSS turnover in their end zone. â€œFull credit goes to South Kam â€“ they out hustled us, were more disciplined and controlled the ball for long periods of time. They definitely wanted it more and deserved
the win,â€? added Smith. Quarterback Caton Garvie went 2 for 14 for16 yards and two picks. Colton Klein led the ground attack, compiling 90 yards and a fumble on 18 carries. Brett Lemiski (20 yards), Garvie (11 yards), Keaton Hubner (10 yards) and Ryan Messer (six yards) also got some touches. Hubner had one catch for 11 yards, and Lemiski had another for five. Defensively, Klein and Hubner were the top Cats with 11 tackles each, Noah Miller and Colten Gaudet each had nine, and Thomas Mills and Lemiski each supplied six.
Isaiah Hennessey, who had a fumble recovery, and Garvie, who reeled in three interceptions, chipped in with four tackles each. â€œOur defence gave up six points, intercepted three balls and recovered a fumble. But when you give up a safety, an interception return for a touchdown and a fumble recovery in our end zone â€“ itâ€™s tough to overcome.â€? The Panthers are tied with the Fulton Maroons and Kalamalka Lakers for first place at 4-1, â€œbut now have to win out our last two games. It putâ€™s some pressure on us and I hope the boys respond,â€? said Smith.

Their winning streak was halted by a .500 team, but the North Okanagan Knights were hardly bitter after falling 3-2 to the Golden Rockets Sunday afternoon at Nor-Val Sports Centre. The Knights brushed back the host Sicamous Eagles 4-2 Saturday night for their seventh straight Kootenay International Junior Hockey League win. Carson George, Keith Wake and Justin Fulton scored as Golden knocked off the Knights, improving to 6-6-0-1 for a share of third place in the Eddie Mountain Division. The Knights are 11-4 and third in the Doug Birks Division. “They’re (Golden) not a bad team,” said Knights’ winger Tanner Burns, of Vernon. “They just seemed to get all the bounces. We played a full 60 minutes and I think the coaches were happier with our effort than they were in our win (over the Kelowna Chiefs) Friday night.”
Nathan Browne, a Vernon product, and Cory Hochhausen replied for the Knights, who outshot the Rockets 37-24. Golden goalie Jarod Schamerhorn earned the win, while Colten Wright took the loss. Burns, who missed three weeks with a concussion and pneumonia, bagged 1+2 to earn first star against the Eagles (4-10). He was on a line with Ben Greenaway (2G) and Bryce Koch. “I felt pretty good,” said Burns, a late cut of the BCHL Vernon Vipers. “Ben is good at finding the open spaces so he makes it pretty easy to hit him with a pass. The three of us play well together.” Brendan Jost also scored for North Okanagan, while Jameson Stoski and Corbin Marcotte replied for Sicamous, who were outshot 41-22. Wright recorded the win. The Knights host the 0-15 Chase Heat Saturday night and visit the league-leading 12-1-0-2 Kamloops Storm Sunday.

“We struggled in the first half, but the boys really slammed the door in the second,” said defensive coach Andy Stefansson. The Vernon Magnums lived up to their motto “Sempre Fi” by recognizing and overcoming adversity. The Magnums team bus left Saturday from Vernon missing 14 of 31 regulars, but grounded the Rocky Mountain Rams 49-0 in Midget play Sunday in Cranbrook. Vernon’s “Brute Force” defence, led by co-captains Landon Koenig and Jonathan Roy, stopped the Rams cold, allowing just one first down in the first quarter. The Vernon offence, led by cocaptains Chad Woodhead and Taylor Jameson, moved the ball well, culminating in a 40-yard misdirection TD run by Game MVP Kyle Olsen-Brown. Vernon’s defence sealed up the field in the second quarter with three great backfield tackles by Jameson, Koenig and Hawk Mendoza. Woodhead called a great second quarter, while runningback Brett Frankland ran hard behind the formidable offensive line of Zac Warner, Jacob Tarr and Jameson for his first touchdown of the game. On Vernon’s next series, they pushed the ball down to the six-yard line where Koenig hit the end zone with three Rams hanging off him. Woodhead then connected with Olsen-Brown on a 45-yard TD pass. Olsen-Brown then went to work at safety, returning a 50-yard interception for a TD. Mendoza converted four of five first-half TDs, including a spectacular trick play for a two-pointer. In the second half, Olsen–Brown ran in a pick for his fourth TD of the day, and Frankland rambled 70 yards for his second score. Big Mike Bridge took over kicking duties for an injured Mendoza, converting both TDs.
“This was a fantastic day for B.C. Midget football,” beamed Vernon coach Bill (Lumpy) Tarr. “The sportsmanship on and off the field makes me proud to be associated with all the players and coaches, no matter which team they were on today.” In Pee Wee action, the visiting Vernon Yellow Jackets stormed the Salmon Arm Colts 38-0. Vernon’s “Big Mac” defence held Salmon Arm to one first down all game. Almost the entire defence recorded tackles, including Seth Nichols, Issac Olsen, Garret (G-Dog) Black-Thomas, Kayden Doughty, Thomas (T-Mac) Mackewich, Thomas Satterthwaite, Bryce Turner, Miles Forrest, Jeff Estrada, Trey Winstanley, Bryce Tkachuk, Carson Harrower, Micheal Hogan, Ethan Ehman and Tristen Baker. Black-Thomas and Forrest also had sacks while Black-Thomas had a second-half interception. Vernon, who are 5-2 with five shutouts, got three touchdowns from Zach Benn and 17 carries, 202 yards and one score from Riley MacGillvray. Issac Olsen and Jordan Scherck, with his first-ever points in his football career, also pocketed TDs. Evan Worth, Dylan Huber and Teylor Munger also ran the ball. “Huge credit goes to the offensive line of Liam Alder, Joe Bateman, Clayton Hamming, Carson Hamming, Nez Ford, Stephane Foster and Taylor Pelletier, who created huge holes all day for the runningbacks,” said Jackets’ head coach Ed Huber. In Atom play, Zach Smith racked up 184 rushing and three TDs as the Vernon Blue Bombers iced Salmon Arm 38-6. Matthew Reich racked up 99 yards and one touchdown, while Isaaiah Ondrik had one TD. Brady Szeman earned seven tackles, Daniel Lesik had three and a pick and Ethan Anderson had several solo tackles, a forced fumble and a recovery.

Falcons advance Morning Star Staff
For the third year running, the A.L. Fortune Falcons are in the B.C. High School Senior A Boys Soccer Championships. The tourney goes Nov. 3-5 in Kamloops. The Falcons punched their ticket with a fifthplace showing at Valley championships in Salmon Arm. The Falcons opened the Valleys with a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Osoyoos Rattlers, despite controlling possession and outplaying their opposition. After going down by two goals in the first half, Caleb Halvorson banged in his own rebound from the edge of the crease to get the Falcons back in the game. Fortune earned a penalty kick in the final minute, but the Osooyos keeper came up with a good save to preserve the win. Striker Sheldon Croken turned the hat trick as Fortune rebounded with a convincing 5-1 win over the Ashcroft Golden Rams. Brendan Shykora and Brendan Honeyman added singles for the Falcons. Friday morning, a determined Falcons squad faced the No. 1 seed and eventual winners, the Kelowna Christian Knights. They fell 2-1 in a shootout.
After giving up an early goal on a deflection, Falcons’ keeper Travis Fox played brilliantly, scooping up any balls near the 18 and allowing his team a chance at a comeback. Late in the first half, Croken timed a run perfectly to chase down a chip pass after catching the Knights’ defence pushing. Reaching the bouncing ball a fraction before the Kelowna keeper, he chipped it over the keeper's head. The Falcons kept up the intensity in the second half, generating three solid scoring chances. Sten Korver and Shykora scored for the Falcons in the shootout, and Travis Fox made two solid saves, but the last Knights shooter
converted for the win. With a B.C. berth on the line in their final game, the Falcons iced the Similkameen Sparks of Keremeos 3-0. Playing in a steady downpour, the Falcons got the lead on a long free kick by Caleb Halvorson that tipped off the goalie's fingertips and into the top corner. Fortune took control in the second half and added goals by Luke Tompkins, on a beautiful feed from Honeyman, and Levi Verlaan. Other Okanagan teams advancing to B.C.s include Kelowna Christian, St. Ann's Academy Crusaders of Kamloops, Immaculata Mustangs of Kelowna and Osooyos.

Gleaners send warmth to Romania CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
The knitters have been busy all year making toques, mittens and socks to send to needy children in Romania. Now the collection bins are out for donations of knitted items or purchased ones, including undergarments, for children of all ages. “About half the items are hand-knit and half are purchased and we appreciate them all,” said Howie Anhorn of the Okanagan Gleaners Society which arranges for the clothing to be sent where it is needed. There are 17 collection barrels around the Vernon area, most in churches with one at The Schubert Centre. Last year the Okanagan Valley produced 24,000 pieces of clothing. The last day for the collection is Nov. 27 so that the items can be distributed by Christmas. Okanagan Gleaners is made up of Christian volunteers who gather, process and package produce from local farmers into soup mix in two processing plants, one in Oliver and one in Vernon. The soup mix is shipped to relief organizations
around the world. “We do this for the fact that there is food going to waste here and there are people starving on the other side of the world,” said Anhorn. Volunteers are needed now to work in the plant as there is a lot of produce. For more information call Eileen at 250-545-1672. The Gleaners Society has a used furniture store to help with the costs of the food processing plant. Donations of used furniture can be delivered to the store at 4405-29th St., Vernon. Call the store at 250549-1123 for hours or to have furniture picked up. This store is the only means of support for the food plant other than donations. The Gleaners Society also collects unused medical equipment which is shipped by relief organizations and sends thousands of packages of donated seeds each year, this year to greenhouse projects in Kenya and Nicaragua. For more information about the Okanagan Gleaners Society programs or to donate yarn for knitting, call Anhorn at 250-549-1632.

Connections help improve mental health BETTY BROWN Special to The Morning Star
Family members can only do so much to improve their loved one’s quality of life. Most of us know about the important role a single secure adult relationship can play in a child’s mental and physical well-being; now imagine the impact of an entire community or a supportive environment surrounding a child outside of the home. A supportive environment can help meet our universal needs to belong, feel valued, feel safe and be a contributing member of a community. Contributing to your community is a win-win situation. Studies show people actually feel better about themselves and their lives when they contribute towards someone else’s well-being. Inclusive neighbourhoods, community events, civic participation and equitable access to recreation are some of the things that help us feel connected. Patricia Pearson, author of A Brief History of Anxiety – Yours and Mine reports on international health data that suggests Mexicans have relatively low rates of anxiety and depression compared to Canadians and Americans. But once they move across the border things change — Mexican people who live in the United States have comparable rates of alcohol and substance use, anxiety and depression. Why is that? What’s the difference? Pearson goes on to explain that after she talked to many people in Mexico she noted some fairly key cultural differences. Most Mexican people continue to live in the communities they were born, they have extended family surrounding them, they are connected to the church, their unions, and the rituals and fiestas that are a part of their culture. Pearson believes that it’s not that Mexican people are less genetically prone to anxiety but rather that
they are more protected from it — or buffered — because of supportive environments and community connectedness. What can we learn from this? How do we help our kids and our family members cope and thrive, even when hardship comes their way? Perhaps the answer is to keep them connected — to you, your extended family, your neighbours and friends. Get to know your neighbours, join community groups and participate in community life. Try volunteering as a family. Participation in civic events, community festivals or neighbourhood associations can help build safe and caring communities within which we all thrive and flourish. By contributing to others, you and your family will not only help someone in need, you will feel better about yourselves, too! Betty Brown is a mental health promotion facilitator with Interior Health.

Clifford Maurice Clifford Maurice Freeman was born at home in Needles, B.C. on November 3, 1916 and left this life on October 17, 2011 at Vernon, B.C. He spent his youth in Needles and as a teen, his family moved to Langley. His interest in agriculture began at this time and he was involved with the Boys and Girls Club for many years. After 4 years of courtship, Clifford married the love of his live, Verna Beverly Devine Freeman, and they remained together for 67 years until last November when Verna died.

Doug or Mac as he was known to family and friends, passed away at Vernon, BC. at the age of 93 years. Doug grew up in the Kootenay’s and upon returning home from the army after six years overseas, he married Barbara Burge; a local girl from Grey Creek. Together, they farmed with Doug working at times in the mines or logging, while Barb drove the local school bus. Doug and Barb decided they wanted to eventually retire in the Okanagan, so they moved ﬁrst to Enderby and bought a little dairy farm in the early 70’s before settling in Lumby. Doug was well known in the community of Lumby where he and his wife Barb lived on their acreage on Mabel Lake road for over thirty years. They both enjoyed having friends and neighbours drop in for a visit. Neighbours could count on Doug to plow their driveways in the winter and rototill their gardens in the spring. It was a common site around Lumby to see him riding his farm tractor down the road, no matter what the weather conditions! Sharing a story, joke, or telling a little riddle to make the ladies blush, made his day! Doug enjoyed gardening, ﬁshing, feeding the birds and the company of their last little dog, Heidi. He also enjoyed playing darts, arm twisting competitions and the “odd” pint with his friends. The twinkle in his eye and his sense of humour will be greatly missed! Doug moved to Vernon four years ago when Barb needed more care, but his old friends and neighbours got to see him on a regular basis when he was “buzzing” around town in his little car, checking on his community. Doug was predeceased by Barb in January, 2010 and two sisters; Francis (Fran) Aldridge and Jean Hewitt. Doug is survived by several nieces, nephews and good friends. A service of remembrance and celebration of life for both Doug and Barb will be held on Thursday, October 27th, 2011 at the Royal Canadian Legion, Lumby, BC at 2:00pm. A tea will follow after the service.

Entry-level earnings start at $30.79/hour to $40.42/hour. Train Locally â€“ The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is accredited by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC). Government student loans, Employment & Labour Market Services (ELMS), band funding & other ďŹ nancing options available to qualiďŹ ed applicants.
