Police investigate homicide ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Shock, disbelief and grief have gripped Armstrong following a Halloween horror. Police are treating as a homicide the death of 18-year-old Taylor Van Diest, who graduated from Pleasant Valley Scondary School in June. Van Diest was found near the railway tracks close to Rosedale Avenue shortly before 9 p.m. Monday by family, friends and police who were out looking for the teen. She had been reported missing earlier in the evening. Van Diest was found to be severely injured and unconscious. She was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital, then transferred to Kelowna General Hospital where she died from her injuries. “What is known is that Taylor Van Diest was going out last evening for Halloween, but it is not clear who she was to meet with,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk Tuesday afternoon. Asked by a reporter about reports the victim had expressed concerns about someone stalking her, Molendyk said police are following up on all aspects of information they have received prior to the homicide. “That’s why we’re asking the public for help, anybody who may have dealt with her or seen her yesterday afternoon, into the evening hours, to call us,” said Molendyk. Police could not confirm if Van Diest was wearing a costume when she was found, given it was Halloween evening. More than 30 officers are following up on Monday’s homicide, including checking ECOENERGY

An RCMP police service dog and handler (above) scour an area near Rosedale Avenue in Armstrong for evidence following an assault Monday night that resulted in the death of Taylor Van Diest, 18. Police spokesperson Gord Molendyk (below, with a photo of Van Diest) is asking for the public’s help in the investigation.

“They are all extremely heart-wrenching.” — Chris Pieper social network sites. Police have no suspects at this point. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the official cause of death. Police are not revealing details of what injuries Van Diest suffered. For the City of Armstrong, the homicide is the fourth tragedy the community has had to deal with in little more than a month. An 18-year-old male was electrocuted at a work site in Armstrong; two Armstrong

children, aged five and four, died in a motorhome fire in Lytton; and an Enderby couple, both 83 who had recently celebrated their 60th anniversary, died as the result of a car accident in Spallumcheen. “They are all extremely heart-wrenching,” said Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper Tuesday. “It always gives you an empty feeling.” Pieper said residents are doing some soul-searching in regards to the tragedies, ask-

ing “why here?” “In the big centres, these types of things happen and we wonder how they can happen in a small community,” said Pieper. “The reality is, you’re never exempt. It can happen in any community.” Floral tributes to Van Diest had been placed on the signals of the railway crossing Tuesday afternoon. Anybody with any information on Van Diest’s death is asked to call the Armstrong RCMP at 250-546-3028, the Vernon detachment at 250545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Tips can also be left on the local Crime Stoppers’ website, www.nokscrimestoppers. com.

News Charges loom after fireworks gut home RICHARD ROLKE

set ablaze. “It could land on a bed or small pile of clothes.� With six people inside the house at the time, the situation could have been far worse. “One person was in a different part of the house sleeping so the others had to get him up and out,� said Alstad. The person renting the home was not present at the time of the fire and it’s not known if he has content insurance. There was little the 14 firefighters could do to save the house, and the main goal was to prevent the fire from spreading. “We had to watch out for other residences. There was quite a load of bush and trees around the house,� said Alstad, adding that his crew was on scene for nine hours. “There was a lot of stuff inside the house. The roof collapsed on itself so there was fire on top of fire.� As a result of the blaze, residents are being asked to stay away from fireworks. “It’s very dangerous,� said Alstad of the possible risk to property and people.

Morning Star Staff

An explosive situation has left an Enderby home in rubble and police considering possible charges. Fireworks set off inside a home on Lawes Street led to the structure being engulfed by flames just after midnight Sunday. “It’s a party that went wrong,� said Kevin Alstad, Enderby’s fire chief. Police officers are determining if possible charges of mischief could be laid. “It’s the first case I’ve heard of people setting off fireworks inside a home,� said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. Enderby’s bylaws prohibit the possession of fireworks, but city officials will not get involved in Sunday’s incident. “We are not looking at issuing a ticket for the bylaw infraction,� said Barry Gagnon, chief administrative officer. Alstad isn’t surprised by the scope of the destruction. “Being very hot, the fireworks ignited the bedroom fairly fast,� he said, adding that he’s not sure what the sparks from the fireworks actually

Police descend on Wesbild Centre for Fright Night ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Fright Night caused havoc for the Vernon RCMP on the weekend. Billed as “The Okanagan’s Largest Halloween Party,� Fright Night drew more than 2,000 people to the Wesbild Centre Saturday night to listen to some of the world’s top DJs spin tunes from an advertised start time of 8 p.m. The last DJ was slated to take the stage beginning at 5:15 a.m. “Fright Night kept our officers busy until 6 a.m.,� said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “Several arrests were made from that party.� Molendyk said there were at least seven calls for service from the event, and officers were brought in specifically for the party. They said they observed a num-

party with Wesbild Centre management and the liquor inspector. “We don’t have anything to do with licensing, but there are issues around liquor and liquor licensing,� said Molendyk, stating there was a cut-off time for serving liquor. “I’m not saying the Wesbild Centre itself is solely responsible. We understand promoters came in to bring the event to the Wesbild Centre and there may be issues with the promoter.� That’s news to Justin Pandos of Kelowna-based Flipside Entertainment, who put on Fright Night. As of Monday afternoon, Pandos hadn’t heard of any complaints from the RCMP. “We want to do anything we can to work with the police,� said Pandos. “We’re long-term guys, we want to work with them to make

sure everything is done the way they like to see it done. “The issues you’re talking of haven’t been brought to my attention yet.� Pandos said the inaugural Fright Night was a positive experience. “It had people from all over the Okanagan, security company did a great job, Vernon police department is great to work with, and the Wesbild Centre was a great venue,� said Pandos. “We sold out close to all of the hotels in the city for the night, which is a great economic impact for you guys. “If there are issues that they would like to talk about, we’re more than happy to talk and make sure that they’re happy in the future.� Wesbild Centre management said they will be meeting with the

RCMP this week. “Any time we hold an event like this, we always meet with the RCMP afterwards and compare notes,� said Doug Ross with the Wesbild Centre. The two sides will meet on Thursday to discuss the Fright Night event.

Suspect arrested after armed robbery ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Thanks to surveillance tape within the business, Vernon RCMP were able to make an arrest in connection with an armed robbery Friday night. Police were called to the Aloha Coin Wash and Dry Cleaning in the 2800 block of 34th Street just before 9 p.m. “A man entered the premises, produced a knife and demanded cash from the employees,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. Two employees were working at the time and

“There was not a lot of attempt to disguise his face.” — Gord Molendyk there were no customers. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. Officers looked at the video surveillance tape and, a short time later, a 28-year-old man – known to police – was arrested near his downtown Vernon residence.

“There was not a lot of attempt to disguise his face,” said Molendyk of the image of the suspect on the tapes. The man was taken into custody where he remained Monday. No knife was found by police, who continue to investigate the robbery.

Officers shut down party ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

A house party advertised on Facebook drew the attention of Vernon RCMP. Police and bylaw officers were able to shut down the party on 24th Avenue, near South Vernon, which started Saturday night and ended in the early hours of Sunday morning. The party attracted more than 200 guests, predominantly teenagers, many of them impaired. “We arrested numerous intoxicated youth and bylaw officers issued

a violation ticket to the owner of the residence,” said Gord Molendyk, spokesperson for the RCMP detachment. According to police, the original party planner told officers she was closing down the house party and moving it to another undisclosed location. “Our officers, being the investigators they are, were able to find the new location before more kids could arrive, and they shut down that one as well before it became too big to deal with,” said Molendyk.

Accident victims identified ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

RCMP and the coroners service continue to investigate a traffic accident in Spallumcheen Thursday that claimed an Enderby couple. Lois Maynard, 83, was driving a 2002 Chevy S10 pickup truck northbound at around 6:30 p.m. on Highway 97A when it crashed into the rear of a commercial Chevy vehicle that had been waiting to make a

left-hand turn at Mount View Road. Maynard was trapped in the vehicle as a result of the collision, and died at the scene. Her husband, Wesley Maynard, 83, was taken originally to Vernon Jubilee Hospital, then transferred to Vancouver General Hospital, where he died from his injuries. The driver of the commercial vehicle, 41, from Armstrong, was not injured.

TSN not making local stop RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Some good sleuthing has stopped a television crew in its tracks. TSN was scheduled to be in Armstrong today and Thursday to film a Remembrance Day feature on five Shamrock lacrosse players who died in the Second World War. However, an apparent mystery surrounding the players has been resolved and that means the TV production won’t make a local stop. “It’s disappointing that we’re not able to tell their story because they were exceptional athletes,” said Ryan Nitchie, Junior Shamrocks coach. TSN was interested in a theory that the disappearance of the Shaw Cup — a solid silver lacrosse trophy — was linked to one of the five players. “It was thought that one of the guys hid it,” said Nitchie of the possibility of the cup resurfacing after the war so the reunited team could compete for it again. “He then died overseas and he wasn’t able to return to recover the cup.” That concept was based on the premise that the cup went missing in about 1940 and it was discovered in the rafters of an old building in 1974. However, recent research by Nitchie and Innes Cooper has determined that the trophy was simply decommissioned in about 1937.

“It’s disappointing we’re not able to tell their story.” — Ryan Nitchie After being on display at city hall for awhile, the cup was put away and the storage place was forgotten about until 1974. The cup, which was donated to the ArmstrongSpallumcheen Museum, is now the focus of competition between teams in the Okanagan X Lacrosse League. While TSN won’t visit Armstrong, not all of the original plans have been scrapped. There will be an

exhibition game between the Armstrong Shamrocks and the Vernon Tigers today at 7 p.m. at Hassen Arena. The teams will be bolstered by former players

of the 1970s. Admission to the game is free and the Royal Canadian Legion will be selling poppies. Nitchie believes today’s game could lead to a new tradition. “We are thinking that around Remembrance Day every year we will host an alumni game and honour those that came before us,” he said. TSN was in Armstrong in August after the city won the Kraft Celebration Tour.

nnette Sharkey’s comments were almost prophetic. The Social Planning Council executive director recently told Vernon council of how the homeless situation has gone from “chaos” to almost manageable since 2006 through a multi-agency approach. But as she wrapped up her report, Sharkey warned that Vernon isn’t out of the woods yet when it comes to tent cities popping up. “We need to keep working around the affordable housing issue,” she said. And within about an hour, the situation was facing council head on. Council was considering rezoning so a seniorsoriented development can take place on the west end of 30th Avenue. Presently, Richard Rolke about 36 people rent space in the old motel and three houses on the site. “Where do all of these people go — the disabled, the seniors?” Kim Merlow, one of the tenants, asked council a few weeks ago. No one should fault the property owner for wanting to develop the site — that is the right of anyone who holds title on land. It also appears that they are well aware of provincial legislation outlining obligations to tenants impacted by development — providing one month’s rent and advance notice for eviction. But this situation highlights a scenario that will occur more in the future. As investors pick up properties in areas designated for redevelopment, the existing residents — many of them lower-income — will have to pack their bags. There are few technical reasons for council to veto rezoning, and while it has no influence over what happens to the current tenants, the

city is doing what it can. Specifically, the city will ask the developer to consider increased compensation for the tenants to assist with moving costs. Opposition to approaching the developer came from Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe, who believes the city should not create roadblocks for developers during a recession. “We should not be encumbering people when they are investing in the city,” she said. O’Keefe also pointed out that the availability of rental suites is quite high. That is true. The vacancy rate in June was 7.7 per cent, up from 5.5 per cent during the same month in 2010 and a dramatic departure from a low of 0.3 per cent in October 2007. But what O’Keefe didn’t mention was the fact that while there are rooms to rent, no one can afford them. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation shows the average rent for a bachelor suite in Vernon was $514 this spring (down from $524 in April 2010), while it was $781 (down from $787) for a two-bedroom apartment and $809 (down from $840) for a three-bedroom unit. If someone is on a disability pension, is a senior on a fixed income or someone struggling to survive on minimum wage, these rents are out of reach. In some ways, the city isn’t helping ease the crunch facing many residents. The recently adopted city centre neighbourhood plan calls for redevelopment of downtown but also in adjacent areas such as those near Seaton Secondary or lower Hospital Hill. It is in those established neighbourhoods with older homes that rents are often the most attainable. There are no easy solutions to expanding low-income residential units, and as a result, elected officials, social agencies and the public will continue to encounter homelessness.

Men don’t like to think about their nether regions too much. Let alone talk about them. Movember is trying to change that. Movember started in 2003 as a bet between two buddies in Australia to see who could grow the best moustache. Some more friends joined in and started to turn the challenge into an awareness and fundraising campaign for prostate cancer. Last year, 447,808 registered participants raised $76.8 million worldwide. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to affect Canadian men, afflicting one in seven. It will kill 4,100 men this year. But if caught early, it is 90 per cent curable. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of symptoms to alert its presence. That’s why Prostate Cancer Canada recommends men over 40 talk to their doctor about a prostate examination, including a PSA blood test. For many men, that’s a rather uncomfortable proposition. But 25 years ago, breast cancer lurked similarly in the shadows. Since then, propelled by runs, walks and paddles, awareness about breast cancer and fundraising to help find its cure has exploded into the public consciousness. Since 1999, the incidence of breast cancer in Canada has stabilized, and since 1986 the death rate from breast cancer has dropped 30 per cent. Women are benefitting from better screening and advances in treatment. As yet there are not many mass runs for prostate cancer and no ribbons of reminder to be worn on lapels. But there is Movember. And it’s as simple as neglecting to shave for 30 days. Or pledging support to someone who’s participating. — Burnaby NewsLeader

Shedding light on the subject

I

f you were to talk to any store owner in Vernon and ask them if they had a high electricity bill, about 95 per cent of them would say yes. I was driving through Vernon at 6:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning recently and I noticed that in almost every single store you looked into the lights were on. I thought to myself, if all of the store owners in Vernon turned their lights off for one night, it would save them a lot of money but also it would be better for the environment. I think it is such a waste of energy to leave all the lights on in an office building or a restaurant. Do the owners of restaurants really think that if someone drives by at 3 a.m. they're going to be in the mood for a burger and fries? Office buildings leave all of their lights on when there is no one inside. WATER QUESTIONS I have been reading a lot about boil water advisories lately. As every one knows, water is our most precious commodity and we should take better care of it. We are always short of water here, but we are building more and more subdivisions around Vernon! Being retired, I have a lot of time and am fishing in and around the backcountry in our area. I would like to know why the shores of many of our lakes in the Vernon watershed are covered with cow dung? There are four-wheelers driving around the reservoirs when the water table are low in the fall? As far as I can see, there is no protection of our water any where to be seen. Were is all of the money from the utilities going to? On another note, this one to the Ministry of Forests. Is it possible to maybe once every 10 years, fix up the roads going to the forestry sites? You need an army truck to get to them. We always advertise enjoy nature around the area, and are trying to get tourism here. But the roads to most lakes in the back country are a disgrace. K. Amsler NO COMMON SENSE Allenby Way is the only main road that connects Bella Vista Road to 27th and 25th avenues.

Also, hotels keep their bright displays on all night. I would understand if they were on till 10 p.m. or so for the people that arrive late. But is it really necessary when the receptionist leaves that the lights are still advertising people to come in when you can’t? I think the only excuse for the lights

So far Allenby to Heritage Drive, (apparently somewhat finished), has no parking on either side. It has two lanes for traffic. It is so narrow it will make normal traffic difficult – ie. for a fire truck and a cement truck to pass one another safely, the chances are slim to none. This road is constantly being use by transit bus, school buses, cement trucks and gravel trucks, some with pups. If a low-bed that is hauling heavy-duty construction machinery, some of which are oversized, they can make the turn, how? For what purpose? Another bike lane? Hey, I'm all in favour of bike lanes, but in the proper areas, that can accommodate them safely, and not impact the commercial use of any road. It is not too late to save 43rd Avenue. Going from four to two lanes is ludicrous. It will impact business on 31st, 30th Street and just kill what is left of 29th Street. How long can any business survive, and continue to pay taxes to support another ill-conceived idea? Twentieth Street is a planner's dream. It is absolutely magazine picture-perfect. Is it serviceable, you tell me? It is time that the mayor, council, city administrator take a very serious look at who is controlling city hall. It's time to replace employees that do not have logic and com-

of a business to be on at night is if it is a 24-hour business like a drive-thru or if some companies have graveyard shifts. If stores did leave their lights on, they might be lucky if they got a couple people to look at their display but at night, everyone is sleeping anyway. If store owners really wanted to keep their displays on,

mon sense, and let them follow their dreams of pies in the skies, but just not in Vernon. Then again, maybe our problem is the mayor, council and administrator. Rose Pollock WELL DONE Recently, I read a letter in The Morning Star regarding the proposed road diet on 43rd Avenue. I would like the mayor and council to know that not only am I in full support of the plan that was developed to better all of Vernon, but I also routinely brag about the proactive initiatives our city has taken to all my family and friends straight across Canada. As both a driver and a (more) frequent pedestrian, I see the value of the new road plans from both sides. As a pedestrian, that typically walks with at least one of my three children, I truly appreciate the wider sidewalks and shared pathways that allow us to get around safely. Just recently, I used the new sidewalk that runs from the Village Green Mall down 29th street. I was first and foremost absolutely amazed at how safe I felt. This was a very welcome change from having to walk down 31st Street (with no walkways at all), as it used to be safer than 29th. The second thing I noticed were businesses that I had no idea existed on that street before.

they could be put on a timer so they turn off at midnight and then they would turn back on at 7 a.m. Even if you do this, you are still saving electricity instead of having the lights on all night. In the end, I think keeping your business lights on all night is a big waste of electricity and money. See if you can try to keep them off for one month and see how much money you save. At the end of the month, you can count all of the money that you saved and you could use it for a business repair or an upgrade. By doing this, we can make Vernon a smarter and greener community and become a role model for the other towns and cities in the Okanagan. Dory Geelkerken Grade 10 Vernon Secondary School

You see, without a safe walking route, the only time I had been down that street was in a car or on the bus. I never had time to notice these places when driving. Now that I know I can safely walk to these places, you can believe I will be able to spend my shopping dollars at these places As a driver, I have noticed less traffic tie-ups along 20th and 27th streets and around Polson Park. The traffic flow is far more simple, especially when attempting left-hand turns. Crosswalks and bike routes along these roads are very clearly marked which takes away a lot of stress when driving. I no longer need to guess if pedestrians are attempting to cross the street as crosswalks are clearly marked. Cyclists having a safe space of their own definitely eases my mind when driving - no second guessing if the cyclist will change lanes, or if the road will suddenly narrow - just knowing there is room for both cars and cyclists makes both methods of transportation more viable in our city. These changes have greatly and positively impacted my life, my health and my children's lives. I know people are usually quick to write to politicians and the media to complain, and not many will let you know that they are satisfied with the work you do. This is why I wanted to tell you that you are doing a fantastic job

with the road diet projects and to give you a heartfelt thank you from my whole family for making our city a safer and healthier place to grow up in and walk and bike around, too. Melanie Young

North Westside residents will decide Nov. 19 if they want to support operations of the Killiney Beach Community Hall through taxes. ship dues. But while the area’s population and operating costs have increased, memberships have not climbed, creating financial pressures. “We need a new furnace and repairs are needed to the annex where we have the community library,” said MacIver. As of June, the hall had a $3,560 shortfall, and a GIC is being tapped to handle the situation. To establish a longterm plan, the association approached the Regional District of

Central Okanagan to hold a referendum to use taxation as a source of sustainable funds. Based on 0.05 cents per $1,000 assessment, a $350,000 property would pay $17.50 a year in service area tax. MacIver points out that 0.05 is the maximum level outlined in the proposed bylaw, but she suggests the rate could actually be 0.365 cents or $12.78 for a $350,000 home.

Ownership of the hall would remain with the association. The hall plays host to dances, meetings, children’s programs, a church and seniors’ activities. “We have yoga. We have line dancing.

Veteran trustee acclaimed KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff

It’s been 18 years since Bill Turanski sat at his first meeting of the board of education for School District 22. And in that time, the current board chairman has not wavered in his commitment to public education. “I have been involved in the education system in one form or another for almost all of my adult life,” said Turanski. “It is something I Bill Turanski know and something I enjoy. “I enjoy the challenges that come with it and I feel that with all the experience that I have had in the system that I have something to offer.” As the sole candidate to represent Coldstream, Turanski has been acclaimed to another threeyear term on the board. As a former student of Vernon High School and principal at BX elementary school, he has deep ties to the district. He has also been witness to numerous changes to education over the years. “We know a great deal more about how children learn and are continuing to learn more at an ever increasing rate,” said Turanski. “The challenge has been to adapt to rapid change including how to implement it and fund it. The single greatest challenge seems to be how to accommodate change and use it effectively as possible. “Our teachers do a truly wonderful job in coping with and utilizing change for the benefit of our students.”

Turanski acknowledges that these are challenging times for trustees, but the rewards are many. “It is difficult, challenging and demanding but when you succeed it can be very rewarding.” Trustees will have a full schedule of those challenges once trustees — both new and returning — take their seats at the board table after the Nov. 19 election. The educational system is embracing personalized student learning and this may require everyone to accept new ways of accommodating student learning, said Turanski, adding that with the economy in its current state, trustees will continue to have to try and do more with less. “As well, we have outgrown our board office facility. The board room and a number of our services operate out of very old portable classrooms which are reaching the end of their life expectancy. We will have to find a way of upgrading the whole school board office complex without the benefit of ministry funding.” Yet with all of the challenges, Turanski said there’s nowhere he’d rather be and much of that is due to what he calls the dedicated, talented and caring people with whom he works and with whom he deals on a daily basis: trustee colleagues, trustees from other districts, district staff, school board office personnel, administrators, teachers, clerical staff, maintenance department personnel and support workers. “And not least, the wonderful group of parents who make the work of the various PACs so meaningful and effective. “All of these individuals are an ongoing inspiration to me.”

Government gives ski resorts a lift

Skiers from across North America are being encouraged to hit local slopes this winter. The provincial government has launched a $1.1 million marketing campaign to promote B.C.’s ski resorts. “It’s fantastic and great to have the eye of the (tourism) minister and the premier,” said Robin Baycroft, resort services manager

“Skiing is an important part of B.C. tourism.” — Robin Baycroft at Silver Star Mountain Resort. The campaign, which runs from November to March, will focus primarily on Greater Toronto. For four weeks starting Nov. 14, there will be ads in elevators,

transit shelters and subways encouraging residents of Canada’s largest city to enjoy B.C. powder. WestJet provides direct flights between Toronto and the Kelowna International Airport. “We’re the closest resort for them in Western Canada because of the direct

flights,” said Baycroft. “If they go to Vancouver, it’s two hours to Whistler.” The marketing campaign will also target San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle, while B.C. and Alberta residents will also be urged to visit B.C. ski resorts. Baycroft was recently in Toronto and he says challenging economic conditions haven’t deterred people from getting away over winter. “We represent a good family holiday and even when times are tough,

people want to spend time with their family,” he said. The government’s marketing campaign has been developed in partnership with the Canada West Ski Areas Association, which represents 13 resorts. B.C.’s ski industry generates annual revenues of about $500 million. “Skiing is an important part of B.C. tourism,” said Baycroft. The tentative opening date for nordic skiing at Silver Star is Nov. 11 while the projected season opener for alpine skiing is Nov. 24.

Free training for CPR set Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan residents have an opportunity to learn life-saving techniques. St. John Ambulance will offer free CPR instruction to the public Nov. 19 at its 47th Avenue training facility in Vernon. “Knowledge of CPR is such a critical issue,” said Jeff Nelson, branch manager. “Statistics indicate that more than 80 per cent of all cardiac arrests occur in the home and our goal is to have one person in every household trained in CPR.” According to Nelson, saving lives requires quick response by bystanders to perform CPR until emergency medical responders arrive. “In far too many cases, CPR is not performed and by the time paramedics are on site with defibrillators to shock the heart and restore breathing,. it’s too late,” he said. “People don’t always understand that cardiac arrest is a treatable condition and our job at St. John Ambulance is to both educate people about cardiac arrest and to train them in CPR.” Instruction is free Nov. 19 but registration is required. For more information or to register, call 250-545-4200.

ROAD SHOW UNCOVERS HUGE TREASURE IN VERNON

Canada’s largest appraiser and buyer of silver coins and gold estate jewelry has uncovered a massive collection of gold and silver during their current stop in Vernon. The Canadian Treasures Road Show four day stop in Vernon this week was nothing out of the ordinary with local folks coming into the show selling their silver and gold coins and unwanted or unused gold jewelry. People usually have a few hundred dollars coming to them from the sale of their items reports Road Show manager Amy Luccianio however we were in shock when a gentleman walked into the show with a dolly loaded with three card board boxes full of silver and gold coins. When we began to sort through the coins it became very obvious that this would take several hours as there was thousands and thousands of coins both Canadian and US. The huge collection was accumulated over fifty years by the now current owners grandfather. Kevin Scott who himself just recently retired shared his amassing story of how his grandfather found most of the coins while working at the municipal dump in Brandon Manitoba. Papa was the only employee at the dump for thirty three years and during that time he set up a small car washing and cleaning side business at the dump and it was free of charge in exchange for any pop bottles or beer bottles the customers would donate.

The gold coins we decided to keep and give to our grand children however as none of our children or grandchildren have an interest in coin collecting we decided to sell the baulk of Papas collection as they were worth many times their face value as the price of silver is at world record highs The total weight of the coins was 102 lbs and the Road Show staff offered us a fantastic price of...well lets just say Papa was right when he said some day we would be rich. It was sad to hand over Papas coins but we are sure he would get a huge belly laugh if he knew his silver coins earned us enough to pay for a big part of his great grand children’s schooling. The road show has moved to the Prestige Hotel Vernon. Located on Highway 97 North across from Vernon Square Shopping Centre.

Classes will be out but the elementary schools will be busy in Ranchero, Falkland and Silver Creek Nov. 19. They are the designated voting stations for the general election in the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District’s Area D. The polls will be open Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters are required to bring two pieces of identification that prove identification and residency. “It’s important to have two pieces of ID, it’s a mandatory requirement. Election officials at the polls can’t let anyone vote without proper documentation, even if they personally know the voter,” says the CSRD. Some of the acceptable identification includes: a B.C. driver’s license, property tax notice, ICBC vehicle insurance documents, social insurance card, B.C. identification card, credit card, B.C. CareCard or Gold CareCard, a utility bill or citizenship card. There is also an opportunity for residents to vote in the advance polls Nov. 9 and 15 at the ColumbiaShuswap Regional District office in Salmon Arm. The polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

By Amy Luccianio - RoadShow Staff Writer Papa also offered a free interior vacuum service with the car wash and he would always find a few coins in the ashtray or on the floor and 99 % of the time his customers would tell him to keep the coins. For thirty some years Papa would come home each day and put the few coins in a glass jar and over the years the collection turned into hundreds of jars of silver coins. I can clearly remember my grand father saying some day we will be rich, rich, rich when I sell my coins and then he would break into a big belly laugh that would rattle the dishes in grammas china cabinet. Papa never did cash in his coins however he spent many a night picking out what he thought would some day become rare or collector coins and would tell me some day this coin or that coin would be worth a fortune. My grand father passed on many years ago and left his collection to my sister and I. Now with us retiring we decided we would see what the collection would be worth so we brought them to the Canadian Treasures Road Show in Vernon. After several hours of going over the coins the road show staff had in fact discovered twenty one US silver dollars that had the rare mint mark from the San Francisco Mint mint and these coins alone are worth eight hundred dollars apiece. They also uncovered one half ounce gold coin and seven ¼ ounce gold coins.

Band leader is an ace on the bass DVOIRA YANOVSKY Vernon Jazz Society

Brighten your mood with The Sean Cronin Quartet featuring Bruno Hubert, one of Vancouver’s most grooving, exciting bands, appearing at the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. The quartet features Cronin’s deep bass sound, Hubert’s subtly complex piano, James Danderfer’s sweet virtuosity on the clarinet, and Joe Poole’s creatively fresh drumming. Tunes that evening include some of “the more oddball swing, bebop, and funky boogaloo material from the ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s,” said Cronin. “Our regular repertoire ranges from Thelonius Monk to Lennie Tristano to Lee Morgan with some Cole Porter and Fats Waller thrown in too.” The band has also been working on some pieces by Oscar Pettiford, Charles Mingus, and classic tunes by Dizzy Gillespie and Count Basie. Original compositions by Danderfer and Cronin will also be featured. Cronin has lived a musical life, beginning piano and recorder lessons at age four, eventually adding guitar, ukulele, sax, drums, and bass. After testing out punk, folk, country, and pop in high school, Cronin settled on acoustic jazz bass as his main pursuit. HAECCEITY/D SMITHERS “My personal style is pretty gritty but Stand-up bassist Sean Cronin leads his quartet to the Vernon melodic, with a lot of swing, but subtle, Jazz Club Saturday. not thrashy,” explained Cronin. “Mingus

and Charlie Haden are two of my faves.” One of Vancouver’s most successful jazz bassists, Cronin often gigs with Denzal Sinclaire, Mike Allen, Brad Turner, Phil Dwyer, and many other well-known musicians.

“My personal style is pretty gritty but melodic, with a lot of swing, but subtle, not thrashy,” — Sean Cronin He is also planning to relocate to New York. “From my perspective, New York is the nucleus of the jazz community. I’m looking forward to exploring it,” said Cronin. Hailing from Maniwaki, Quebec, Hubert initially studied percussion before moving on to the piano. He was in his late 30s before beginning to play professional jazz. “After playing heavy metal and rock for 15 years as loud as possible, I thought that playing jazz was about the relationship with the musicians, not the just the music. You begin a love affair with the musicians,” said Hubert. After 20 years of studying and performing, Hubert moved from Montreal to Vancouver in 1989. He spent five years

studying piano with Miles Black before joining Brad Turner’s quartet and then becoming a band leader himself. His list of musical influences is short but eclectic. “I would say my influences are Keith Jarrett and Shostakovich. That’s pretty much the only two you need in my area. After that, they’re all imposters,” said Hubert. Danderfer took up the clarinet in the school band. “For me, early inspiration came from recordings by Duke Ellington, Lester Young, Oscar Peterson, and Artie Shaw as well as from Ray Charles, The Beatles, Muddy Waters, and Led Zeppelin,” said Danderfer. “I’ve always been attracted to jazz music for its unique mix of creativity, soul, romance, intellect, and groove.” A protégé of Oscar Peterson and others, Poole has a great sense of musicality, groove, and rhythmic fluidity. He is a regular member of the Jaclyn Guillou Quintet, Rich Underhill Group, Tony Foster Group, and performs with the Juno-nominated Denzal Sinclaire. Recent work includes a season in Nice, France and a tour of Italy. The Sean Cronin Quartet, featuring Hubert, takes the stage at the Vernon Jazz Club, 3000-31st. St. (upstairs from Nolan’s Pharmasave) Saturday at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. and tickets are $20 ($15 for jazz society members) in advance at the Bean Scene and Bean to Cup.

New Elvis tribute grabs a ride aboard the Hayride Morning Star Staff

After eight sold-out shows in the North Okanagan, the Louisiana Hayride in Story and Song rides again, taking over the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Sunday. The show will once again come complete with the Louisiana Hayride set, live singers and band, and for fans of The King, an allnew Elvis tribute. “We have a new young Elvis that won the Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival in Penticton,” said Gil Rising, guitarist, bassist and vocalist with the Hayride band. “He has been really well received by the audience and is another great addition to the show.” Adam Fitzpatrick’s first experience with the world of Elvis tributes was in 2008 when on a dare, he entered the Penticton Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival with 14 other acts, and ended up winning the amateur division. The 27-year-old Penticton native has since performed in numerous shows, including an appearance at the Pacific National Exhibition’s Elvis Tribute show and with the popular Appaloosa Show Band along with the Uptown Hornz, who are the official horn section for the Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival. Fitzpatrick performs all three eras of Elvis’ musical career: the high energy moves of the ‘50s, the raspy vocals of Presley’s ‘68 comeback special, and the powerful vocals of the Vegas years, complete with authentic costume changes appropriate to the era. “I consider it a great privilege to be able to perform with the Louisiana Hayride,” he said. “No one can ever be Elvis, he was and

The Louisiana Hayride in Story and Song features odes to Hank Williams (Patrick Ryley), Patsy Cline (Andrea Anderson), Elvis (Adam Fitzpatrick) and Roy Orbison (Gil Risling) among others, Sunday at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. still is unique. My goal in the show is to give the audience as much as possible, what they might experience from attending a real Elvis concert.” For those who haven’t caught the Hayride, the show is based on the actual live radio show that was broadcast nationally from Shreveport, Louisiana from 1948 to 1960.

It was instrumental in establishing the careers of such artists as Hank Williams, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash and because of that earned the nickname The Cradle of the Stars. “The list of artists who performed at the Hayride is impressive and in addition to Williams, Presley and Cash, also featured

Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins, Roy Orbison and many others,” said Lori Risling, who wrote, produced, and acts in the Hayride. Risling wrote a syndicated country music column, which appeared in The Morning Star, for 10 years and has interviewed countless country music artists, including Shania Twain, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Dwight Yoakam and Johnny Cash. “It’s hard to find this classic music anywhere and it’s really hit home with those who have seen the show. The memories bring laughter, tears and joy,” she said. Also in the cast is Andrea Anderson, who has an uncanny vocal resemblance to Patsy Cline and has sang the American national anthem for the Phoenix Coyotes, Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago Cubs. A Vernon native, she won the 2004 Okanagan Idol contest and has performed at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival. Joining her is Patrick Ryley, the morning host and assistant program director at Salmon Arm radio station EZRock, who also has striking resemblance to Hank Williams, making him a crowd favorite. Besides Risling, musicians in the band also include William Brookfield on double keyboard, guitar, banjo and vocals, and Mike Melnichuk on stand-up double bass, electric guitar and vocals. The Louisiana Hayride in Story and Song takes place Sunday at 7 p.m. in the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. Tickets are $35 (all ages) available at the Ticket Seller box office.

The series begins Friday with a reading by Kelowna by-the-way of Montreal poet and translator Erin Moure. In her recent books of poetry, O Resplandor (2010), and Oana Avasilichioaei: Expeditions of a Chimæra (2009), Moure expresses a hybrid of translation and collaboration. She has translated Nicole Brossard (with Robert Majzels) and Louise Dupré from French, Chus Pato and Rosalía de Castro from Galician, Andrés Ajens from Chilean Spanish, and Fernando Pessoa from Portuguese. Her essays, My Beloved Wager (2009), are a chronicle of 25 years of writing practice, which incudes

numerous awards, performances and speaking internationally on poetry and translation. Poet and author Matt Rader follows with a reading Thursday, Nov. 10. Rader’s most recent book is A Doctor Pedalled Her Bicycle Over the River Arno. He is also the critically acclaimed author of two previous collections of poetry, Living Things and Miraculous Hours, which was a finalist for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award and long-listed for the ReLit Award. His poems, stories, and nonfiction have appeared in journals and anthologies across North America, Australia, and Europe and have been nominated for numerous awards, including the Journey Prize, the National Magazine Award, and two Pushcart Prizes. He lives in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island.

Caravan sets the ‘Barr’ high for concert KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Locals will be able to throw a Montreal band a few bones when they play an intimate concert at Caravan Farm Theatre next week. Recently heard on CBC Radio’s Q, The Barr Brothers are currently touring across the U.S. on the recent release of their selftitled CD, and stop in the wilds of ArmstrongSpallumcheen, between shows in Vancouver and Calgary, Wednesday Nov. 9. “It will be an intimate show in the farm’s cookshack and seating is limited,” said the farm’s publicist Lisa Mori. The band has a few connections to Caravan and the area, most notably through a video that was shot by filmmaker Sebastian Lange in the Enderby-Grindrod area for the first single off The Barr Brothers’ album, Beggar in the Morning. Shot at the home studio of local artist and Caravan lighting designer Stephan Bircher, the video features the bone and metal motorized

(Bircher’s “band” will be on display at the Caravan concert and the video for Beggar in the Morning can currently be

seen on YouTube.) Bircher recently travelled to Montreal to attend The Barr Brothers’ album release party. “I hardly got to meet them at the event as they were so busy, so I am looking forward to them coming here,” said Bircher, who this past weekend showed the

band and some of his other sculptures at the Ashpa Naira Gallery’s Sculpture and Arte Funktional exhibition in the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. Another connection the band has to Caravan is through luthier Kim White, who now makes his home and studio at

the farm. The owner of Hobo Nation Guitars, White’s own design, an electric tackle box guitar (yes, it’s actually made of an old tackle box), is played by Brad Barr. The guitar has received a little press recently as Guitar World magazine recently showed a video of the unique string bow technique Barr uses, where individual threads are attached to guitar strings and pulled through his fingers to create a static, quivering sound. A live demonstration may be order at the Caravan show. Tickets to see The Barr Brothers are $17 and can be reserved by calling Caravan Farm Theatre toll-free at 1-866-5468533. Gates to the farm will open at 7 p.m. (rush seating) with music starting at 8 p.m. A cash bar and concession will be available. For more information, visit www.caravanfarmtheatre.com.

It’s a crazy weekend in the North Okanagan for music legends. Not only is the Louisiana Hayride in Story and Song pulling into the Vernon Performing Arts Centre for another go Sunday, Vancouver celebrity impersonator Bonnie Kilroe is returning to the region with her tribute to Patsy Cline. She performs at Sneakers Sports Bar in Vernon’s Village Green Hotel Friday and at the Armstrong Inn Sunday. A “farce” to be reckoned with, Kilroe has appeared from Alaska to Antarctica with three suitcases full of costumes and wigs impersonating everyone from Cher, Barbra Streisand to Lady Gaga. However, it’s her solo impersonation as country legend Cline that has attracted the most attention as she captures the unique vocal talent and re-creates the flamboyant fashion, styling and passion of the country legend with uncanny accuracy.

Vancouver’s Bonnie Kilroe returns to the North Okanagan with her tribute to country music legend Patsy Cline.

Morning Star Staff

“Her moment in the spotlight was brief, but she lives on in her music,” said Kilroe, who has been performing as Cline for more than a decade on cruise ships, in cabarets and at conventions. “Cline’s single, Crazy, is one of the most popular jukebox songs ever and second only to Elvis Presley’s Hound Dog. Aside from her music, Patsy left an enduring impression on her fans and fellow country stars for her courage and perseverance.” Besides Crazy, Kilroe’s tribute brings alive classic songs such as Sweet Dreams, Walking after Midnight, I Fall to Pieces, and many others. In her act, Kilroe recreates a live concert atmosphere that Cline would have performed back in the early 1960s. Audience participation is encouraged as she engages and sings throughout the evening. “Audiences will be able to step back in time and imagine they are one of the lucky fans with a ticket to see one of the world’s greatest country legends headlining at the Mint Casino in Vegas,” said Kilroe. Her performance at Sneakers starts at 8:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $15, available at the bar. Sunday’s performance at the Armstrong Inn starts at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets are $12 available at liquor store or call 250-546-3056.

Storm water requires diverse approach TRINA KOCH Special to The Morning Star

As the Okanagan’s rainy season approaches, it’s a good time to talk storm water. Ever wonder what happens to water once it gurgles down the storm drain in front of your house? Many people, especially those growing up before the days of yellow fish painted beside storm sewers, probably never gave it much thought. In fact, that storm drain was, and still is for some, a handy method of getting rid of water used to wash off driveways, cars, paintbrushes and more. And what about all that oily rainwater flowing down the road and into the storm drain? Surely, all this run-off must go to the treatment plant right? Actually, no. Water and everything else that enters municipal storm drains in the Okanagan, flows directly into our creeks and lakes – without treatment. Of course, these creeks and lakes are also home to local fish and other aquatic creatures, provide water for wildlife and drinking water for many residents. Pollutants in storm water can hurt water quality and result in health risks to humans and wildlife. In a number of Okanagan communities, local governments and residents are working together to ensure the water that enters the storm sewers, and ultimately our creeks and lakes, is as clean as possible. A number of communities are building bioswales and restoring wetlands, which clean storm water by naturally filtering the water through vegetation. And vegetation is also being planted to stabilize slopes. For

example, Coldstream has taken some initial steps in storm water treatment by building a bioswale and planting riparian plants at Creekside Park. Many residents are also doing their part to keep our storm water clean. Here are a few ideas: ■ Install rain barrels, down spout flash guards or rain chains to direct and collect rainwater for re-use in your garden. ■ Paver stones, used in the construction of walkways and driveways, allow rainwater to sink into the spaces between stones and into the ground. On an asphalt driveway, an asphalt berm, known as a waterbar (like a little speed bump) can be added to slow and spread run-off to vegetated or mulched (wood or gravel) areas. ■ If you need to wash your vehicle, do it at a car wash that recycles its water and treats it before returning it to the environment. If you must give your vehicle a quick wash at home, do it on the lawn. The lawn will act as a natural filter that removes many of the chemicals before the water makes its way back to our streams and lakes. ■ Dispose of hazardous materials at appropriate disposal locations. ■ Remove pet waste from your property to prevent it from washing into the nearest storm drain. For more ideas around your home, check out the OBWB’s new, Slow it. Spread it. Sink it: An Okanagan Homeowner’s Guide to Using Rain as a Resource. The guide is available online, at www.okwaterwise.ca. Trina Koch is with the Okanagan Basin Board’s Slow It. Spread It. Sink It committee. Okanagan WaterWise is an initiative of the Okanagan Basin Water Board.

Orchardists turf out incumbent directors JUDIE STEEVES Black Press

It was a fractious meeting that saw hun-

dreds of orchardists gather from around the Okanagan to turf out two of three incum-

bents on the board of the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative and replace them with

growers calling for changes. Exactly what changes they wish to make

remains to be seen because in their threeminute talks prior to election, most were not

specific. However, there were some shrill voices raised during the business

discussions at the fivehour meeting and a lot of finger-pointing. Elected to represent the northern half of the valley on the 10-member board was Karmjit Gill of Kelowna, while Kirpal Boparai and Colin Pritchard, also of Kelowna, tied for the second northern post on the board. Defeated was incumbent Steve Day, along with Brian Porter, both of Kelowna. Jim Elliot of Oyama did not stand for re-election, after serving the first three years of the newly-amalgamated co-operative’s existence as president of the board. In the south, Ron Vollo of Summerland was re-elected, and Darshan Jassar of Penticton unseated incumbent Claude Moreira on the board. The other board members are Sam DiMaria of Kelowna, Malcolm Mitchell of Winfield, Philip Patara of Kelowna, Nirmal Dhaliwal of Oliver and Jack Machial of Oliver. Immediately following the annual general meeting of the OTFC, board members voted Pritchard on to the board, so Boparai was defeated in his bid for a seat. The board also elected Rob Dawson of Cawston as interim president, until a special meeting set for Nov. 9. Growers complained that they are not making a living in the tree fruit industry, and some suggested the co-operative should take lower quality fruit, rather than diverting it to be processed, which pays just a few cents a pound. “You’re grading us out of business,” claimed Kelowna grower Brian Witzke, but Elliot said customers demand high quality or they’ll buy their fruit from other producers. Growers also learned about plans for modernizing the packinghouse infrastructure and about plans for a new CanadaGap certification program for the tree fruit industry.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Because of your reluctance to be forthright about what is bothering you, many of your companions will find you difficult to understand and tolerate. Loosen up a bit. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Frivolous activities that don’t make any kind of contribution to your material or social wellbeing shouldn’t be given a whole lot of your time. Don’t make trouble for yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Your self-image and reputation could suffer greatly if you fail to keep your temper in check, especially when you’re around people you like and respect. Control your ire and you control your image. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) If you insist upon dwelling on negatives, you’ll elude all possibility of having any success. It’s important to strive to be a positive thinker as much and as often as you can. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Keep your snoot out of a friend���s business if you see that she or he is unwilling to share something with you. Everyone is entitled to privacy when they feel it’s warranted. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’re in for a big surprise if you think inflexibility will enhance your negotiating skills. All it will do is cause people to turn their backs on you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) There’s nothing to be gained by spreading yourself too thin where your work is concerned.

It will gain you a lot of needless frustration when you can’t complete all that you want to. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Trying to con a co-worker into doing a job your way will turn into a frustrating experience. If you want things done well, let your colleague call the shots. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Unless you think your way through every step of the day, your gains will be slimmer than a fashion model. If you do things in a haphazard manner, your fragile arrangements will crumble like a misbegotten cookie. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You had better stay focused on your endeavors because if you don’t, chances are you will make a serious mistake that could require a total, and very expensive, makeover. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you intend to go window-shopping at the mall, you’d be smart to leave your credit cards at home. Your resolve to maintain your budget will be weaker than a wet noodle.

Bridge by Phillip Alder Finesse in a slam with subtlety Music genius Brian Eno said: “I’m struck by the insidious, computer-driven tendency to take things out of the domain of muscular activity and put them into the domain of mental activity. The transfer is not paying off. Sure, muscles are unreliable, but they represent several million years of accumulated finesse.” At the bridge table, though, mental activity is much more important than muscle strength. How strong is your brain? You are South, in six hearts. West leads the spade queen and continues with his second spade. What would be your plan? East opened two spades, a weak two-bid, with two first-round controls, which

is not textbook. However, these days players are much more flexible, especially when void in the other major. North’s four diamonds was Leaping Michaels, showing a strong hand with at least 5-5 in hearts and diamonds. When you advanced with four hearts, North jumped to slam, assuming that you would have six useful points. If you didn’t, the bad result would be your fault! You must assume that West has the heart king. But it is easy to get careless. Watch what happens if you ruff with dummy’s heart three at trick two. You cross to your hand with a club and run the heart jack, but the 4-0 break defeats you because you can take only one more finesse. Yes, you will try to return

to your hand by ruffing the third diamond, but West will overruff for down one. Now try ruffing at trick two with dummy’s nine. You can play a club to your king, run the heart eight, run the heart jack, play a heart to dummy’s queen, cash the heart ace, and claim.

Suites drive permits up

Although it appears that the number of permits issued has increased, the permits for existing secondary suites being legalized must be taken into account. By subtracting the secondary suite permits issued from both the 2010 and 2011 figures, permit figures are on par for both

years. Although the value of permits has declined by almost 30 per cent over the previous years, officials state the District of Lake Country is faring well in the economic downturn in comparison to other communities.

Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Christian School Royals placed second in their home invitational senior boys volleyball tournament, falling 2-0 (25-18, 25-) to the No. 2-ranked Kelowna Christian School Knights in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final. The well-rested Knights put in a tenacious effort, making the Royals work hard for any earned points. Setter Aaron Spence provided the Royals with a balanced attack all weekend and served up four aces. Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; co-captain Sam Koch was selected as a tournament all-star. Setter Chad Loewen of Kelowna Christian rated tournament MVP. Chris Bannickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Royals opened the five-team event by stopping the Pleasant Valley Saints 2-0 (25-18, 25-20) and then falling in three sets to the No. 3-ranked Cedars Christian Eagles of Prince George. The Royals bounced back by defeating the Clearwater Raiders 2-0 (25-20, 25-14). Jordan Vandermeulen led the middle attack in the match with five kills and three solo blocks. Reuben Smid and Micah Cardinal also played well in the match. The Royals finished the round-robin by surprising Kelowna Christian 2-1 (13-25, 25-14, 15-7). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Middles Adam Ensing and Vandermeulen had solid games up front while Adam McCaffrey delivered solid passing on serve receive,â&#x20AC;? said Bannick. Vernon Christian met the Eagles again in the semifinals later Saturday and played a much stronger defensive game, with Koch leading the way with several key blocks and kills in the thrilling three-set victory, (23-25, 31-29, 15-7). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Libero Luke Wolgram and McCaffrey kept many rallies alive with several key digs, while outside hitter Travis Hoogland led the offence with 10 kills from the left side in the match,â&#x20AC;? said Bannick. Kelowna Christian grounded PVSS 2-0 (25-21, 25-17) in the other semifinal. The Royals are in Abbotsford this weekend for their final tournament and then play in the Valley Senior A Boys Championships, Nov. 18-19, at their own gym. The Fulton Senior Girls Invitational starts Friday with the Maroons facing the Sa-Hali Sabres of Kamloops in their 2:15 p.m. opener. The VSS Panthers and Kal Lakers are among the eight teams entered.

Vipers searching for first win against Penticton Morning Star Staff

Slow starts have killed the Vernon Vipers in their last two encounters with the Penticton Vees. If Vernon wants to hang with Penticton atop the B.C. Hockey League standings, head coach Jason Williamson said his team canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to sputter in their third meeting tonight at Wesbild Centre. The second-place Snakes (9-4) trail the first-place Vees (11-2-0-1) by five points in the Interior Conference race, with a game in hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got behind the eight-ball and just ended up chasing the last couple games,â&#x20AC;? said Williamson, of their previous tilts, both 6-2 losses.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to start playing with that edge early. Play with that chip on their shoulder from the drop of the puck and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fine. If we win the dots-to-the-boards game, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be OK.â&#x20AC;? However, with Pentictonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerplay clicking at nearly 31 per cent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is sixth at just over 21 per cent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Williamson knows there is a fine line between controlled aggression and two minutes in the penalty box. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just have to be aware of who youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the ice against,â&#x20AC;? said Williamson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to take a penalty, you better make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good penalty. Someone better be getting run over.â&#x20AC;? With a trio of Vipers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; defencemen Luke Juha and Brett

Corkey, and forward Aaron Hadley â&#x20AC;&#x201C; trying out for Team Canada West, Williamson wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure what his lineup would look like as of the Morning Starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press time Tuesday afternoon. Whoever makes head coach Kent Lewisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team will be staying in Langley for the World Junior A Challenge, Nov. 7-13. Williamson hinted that Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cole Sanford might be called up from the KIJHL Revelstoke Grizzlies. SNAKE BITES: Viper captain Pat McGillis began light skating Tuesday for the first time since suffering an ankle injury in the Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 4-1 win over the Chilliwack Chiefs on Oct. 7. The time line for his return is unknown.

Panthers cruise Morning Star Staff

Clearly too much for the Mt. Baker Trojans to handle, the VSS Panthers spread the ball around in a 67-0 Southern Interior High School Football League victory Saturday at Kalamalka Secondary. Fill-in tailback Thomas Mills led the injury-riddled Cats with three touchdowns runs of three, 53 and 12 yards. “With our injury situation at a critical level across the board, it was nice to see Thomas Mills step up and perform well at a new position,” said VSS coach Sean Smith. “Hopefully he can do the same thing next week against stiffer competition.” The Panthers can clinch the conference title with a win over the Okanagan Mission Huskies Saturday (2 p.m, Kal). “We need to have a great week of practice so we are prepared for OKM,” added Smith. “They are a strong team that will be looking to knock us off for a chance to make the playoffs.” Caton Garvie opened the Panther offence on a 42-yard run in the first quarter, followed shortly after by Colton Klein on a 52-yard romp and Brett Lemiski on a 48-yard TD reception from Garvie.

Mills made it 26-0 in the second quarter, while Will Finch scored on a two-yard pass from Garvie and Perry Klymchuk ran in the two-point convert, to close the first-half scoring. Mills, Noah Miller on a 40-yard pass from Klymchuk, and Isaiah Hennessey on a 60-yard interception return, recorded TDs in the third. Mills and Klymchuk on a 10-yard ramble, had TDs in the fourth quarter. Hennessey booted five converts. Mills finished with 85 yards rushing on six touches. “Cody Bell had a great game for us on both offence and defence,” said Smith. “He defended the pass well and made a couple of nice blocks on offence.” Miller led the Cats’ defence with 10 tackles and one sack, while Colten Gaudet earned nine tackles, one fumble recovery and one blocked punt. Keaton Hubner registered eight tackles and scooped up a fumble, while Bell supplied eight tackles and Mills had seven tackles and one fumble recovery. Andy Hladik provided three tackles and one pick, while Jared Caton had three tackles. Hennessey, Will Finch and Ben Alder grabbed one fumble apiece.

Heat take B.C. soccer silver

Knights fall in OT

Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan Knights had the top team in the bag, but somehow the Kamloops Storm escaped. Up by a pair of goals late in the third period, the Knights watched as the Storm equalized with two goals in the final minute before pulling off a 6-5 overtime win in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Sunday at McArthur Island Arena. “We played 55 minutes of great road hockey – good discipline, solid systems. We squeezed out a point against the top team, but I know the guys are disappointed,” said Knights’ coach Kris Mallette. With twins Eric and Patrick Chore playing up with the BCHL Prince George Spruce Kings, and defenceman Ben Greenaway down with the flu, Mallette called up Vernon’s Mat Lambert and Kelowna’s Matty Saharchuk. The Knights, third in the Doug Birks Division at 11-4-0-1, built up a 4-2 lead after two periods on goals by Cory Hochhausen (2), Mateja Leko and Tanner Burns. Ryan Harrison and Chase McLeod replied for the 15-1-0-2 Storm. Tyler Jackson pulled the Storm within one on a powerplay goal with five minutes to play, but Nathan Browne, a Vernon native, restored the two-goal cushion a minute later on a Knights’ man advantage. Singles 19 seconds apart in the final minute by Diego Cuglietta and Jackson forced OT. “Our guys started gripping their sticks and panicking and Kamloops was able to gain the momentum,” said Mallette. “We were basically running two lines. We only had one game last weekend, but our guys were tired and banged up. Kamloops is a physical team.” With the Chore brothers joining the Spruce Kings on an upcoming road trip, combined with various injuries, the Knights will be down to nine forwards when they begin a three-game weekend against the Osoyoos Coyotes (12-6) Friday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. The Knights visit the Sicamous Eagles (6-10) Saturday night.

The Thompson Rivers WolfPack edged the UBC Okanagan Heat 2-1 in extra time, in the PACWEST provincial gold-medal women’s soccer final Saturday at Nonis Field in Kelowna. Lindsey Briggs scored for the Heat, who won a bronze medal last year. The WolfPack now head to the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Championships starting Nov. 9 in Quebec. They are being hosted by FX Garneau. The WolfPack’s MVP, midfielder Alanna Bekkering was the difference in the gold-medal match. Bekkering scored the winner in the ninth minute of the first overtime half with a blast from her left

leg after shaking off three UBC Okanagan defenders. The high hard shot sailed past Heat keeper Sabrina Gasparac. Bekkering also scored the other goal for the WolfPack in the 42nd minute when she took the ball down the left side and hit the far corner of the top of the goal with a strong left foot from just outside the 18-yard box. The Heat dominated the play for most of the first half with numerous chances to score. Emily Braun got the ball at the top of the 18 and fired a bullet which just went wide right. Soon after in the 40th minute, fullback Sharon Kersey had a free kick that resulted in a scramble in front of TRU keeper Emily Edmundson.

“It worried me a little bit in the first half when UBC Okanagan came out so strong,” said TRU head coach Tom McManus, whose club had handed the Heat their only loss during the regular season. “They are a super team. They pressured us a bit in first half but we came back.” It took the Heat until the 88th minute before they were able to finally scratch a goal across as forward Briggs finished on a scramble in front of the net. The Heat had a brilliant chance to tie the game in extra time as well when first-year midfielder Anna Merino had a good look at the goal but her shot went just wide a few seconds before the final whistle blew. The Heat have no fifth-year players and will lose only Sharon Kersey to graduation. They placed two players on the tournament all-star team: Hayley Carlson was named best defender, while Taylor Sarchet was named best midfielder. The Heat were without leading scorer Kirsten Dodds of Vernon for the match. She had been taken to the hospital from an injury during the semifinals. Michelle Smith of Vernon is also with the Heat. Meanwhile, the Mt. Royal University Cougars of Calgary earned a silver medal in the ACAC provincial soccer final after falling 1-0 to the NAIT Ooks of Edmonton, the No. 1 ranked team in the CCAC. Vernon’s Monica Neilson was awarded Player of the Game for her goal-stopping in central defence for the Cougars. The Heat’s men’s volleyball team swept the weekend series with the Winnipeg Wesman in four sets, (25-21, 21-25, 25-15, 26-24) Saturday at the UBC campus.

Leibel lights it up Morning Star Staff

Dennon Leibel pocketed a pair of goals as the Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers tied the league-leading Kelowna Fripps Warehouse Rockets 3-3 in Midget Tier 1 hockey action Saturday night at Memorial Arena. Leibel got the all-important first goal in the fast-skating contest, from defenceman Ryan Beach, to give Vernon a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes. The Rockets tied it in the second frame but the Vipers answered back with 10 seconds left in the period as defenceman Austin Garrington blasted home a nice feed from Justin Mitchell on a powerplay. Cody Hendrickson earned the second assist. The Rockets equalized again in the third but Leibel, on an energetic forecheck by Curtis Sexsmith, scored seconds later to restore the one-goal lead. The Rockets got even again in the late going. The 1-3-3 Vipers have this weekend off before heading to Calgary for The Edge tournament on the Remembrance Day weekend. The Watkin Motors Mustangs bowed 4-0 to the Kamloops Jardines Blazers in a highly physical Tier 1 Pee Wee league game Sunday at Wesbild Centre. Connor Webb was a rock in net for the Mustangs, stopping 31 shots. Hard-working captain Reed Cashato played a strong game and winger-turned-d-man Ethan King was a bodychecking presence up front.

In Pee Wee Tier 3 action, the Fix Auto Predators of Vernon went to four-on-four overtime before falling 5-4 to Kelowna in Sunday’s final at a tournament in Revelstoke. The Preds got goals from Drayden Dougan, Stephane Richard, Dex Elders, CJ Storey, and Mika Burns. Joe Eggert earned two assists. Ethan Huizinga and Braeden Barnard split net duties, both playing outstanding throughout the tournament. The Predators clipped the Nixon Wenger Jets of Vernon 2-1 in Saturday’s semifinal. It was a high-paced, hard-hitting game which saw great defensive play by both teams as they entered the third period scoreless. The Jets opened the offence at 16:43, as Dawson Boyce notched a huge goal from Nick Cherkowski and Coleton Bilodeau. The Predators responded with late goals by Richard and Dougan by getting traffic in front of goalie Jayden Jensen-Hunter. Noah Debalinhard and Juli Gilowski played solid defence for the Preds. Mason McLennan drew the assist on Richard’s equalizer, while Dougan tapped in a pass from Jones, who was fed by Drayden Harshenin. Said Jets’ head coach Keith Chase: “It was a very exciting game with the Jets showing a great physical presence and puck movement. The team showed its best work ethic and defensive play without the puck.” Strong play for the Jets came from Kyle

Marauders rolling into postseason Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Marauders are obviously ready for the Southern Interior Junior Bantam Football League playoffs. Ron Kirschner’s crew finished the regular season Sunday with a 31-0 bouncing of the host Kamloops Broncos. The same two teams meet in first-round playoff action Sunday (2 p.m.) at Grahame Park. Quarterback Trey Isaac led his most balanced and productive attack of the season, passing for 140 yards on six of 12 attempts. He also scored a touchdown, was good on two of four convert attempts and kicked an 18-yard field goal. Also scoring for Vernon were Jonah Waterstreet, with 58 rushing yards on four carries, and Carson Labrecque, with 54 yards on five carries and some big blocks. Levi Nicholas was the most potent weapon for the Marauders, rushing for 67 yards on three carries and gaining 81 yards on three passes, one of which was a 39-yard strike for a TD. Instrumental to the success of the Marauder attack was the blocking of linemen Tyler (Ducky) Sova, Mike Tesarski and Hayden McLean. Wideouts Keegan Vicklund, Jayden Koscienly and Kenzel ArtsRoman also made key blocks to spring their teammates for TD runs. The rock-solid defence was led by linebacker Jakob LaFlamme-Yonkman with 10 tackles and some great pass coverage. Defensive end Bryce Sorensen recorded five tackles and a sack, while putting huge pressure on the Bronco QB, as did safety Josiah Gaskell, who earned two tackles and a fumble recovery, and middle linebacker Weston Vanderveen with four tackles. Corners Mack Henry, Hunter Koopmans, Connor Kamann and Koalden Oakden provided stifling pass coverage all game. “Our defence is really starting to gel,” said defensive co-ordinator Andy Stefansson. “It has been an evolutionary process throughout the season that has seen some of our new players gaining game experience in a variety of positions. They are now settling into a spot where they can excel and contribute to our defence.” Added Kirschner: “The boys are working well together. Avoiding injuries will be key to our success in the playoffs.” In Pee Wee action Saturday at Hillside Stadium, the Vernon Yellow Jackets completed their regular season with a 45-0 win over the Kamloops Broncos. Contributing on offence were Dylan Huber with three carries for 76 yards and two touchdowns, Riley MacGillivary with touches for 105 yards and two touchdowns, Zach Benn with eight rushes for 145 yards and one TD and Issac Olsen with four runs for 19 yards and one TD. Evan Worth, Jordan Scherck and Teylor Munger also ran the ball. “It was a day of excellent defence as the Broncos only managed one first down all day on the last series of the game,” said Jackets’ head coach Ed Huber. “Thomas Mackewich led the Big Mac Attack defence with two interceptions, one for a touchdown.” Miles Forrest registered an interception and a QB sack, while Bryce Turner forced a fumble and recovered one. Also forcing a fumble was Noah Slimmon. Kayden Doughty was outstanding on special teams with two excellent punt returns for a total of 85 yards. Vernon ended the regular season 6-2 with six wins by shutouts. Vernon hosts the Salmon Arm Colts in quarterfinal action Sunday (noon) at Grahame Park. The Vernon Midget Magnums won by default over the Penticton Chargers, and have received a bye into the nine-man provincials, Nov. 12, in Kamloops along with Vernon Atom Blue Bombers.

The letter is in the mail The Letter Writing Social Club revives what has almost become a lost art

CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Laisha Rosnau has been writing and sending letters since she was five but she’s still excited when she gets her mail and sees a personal letter. “I like the way the paper feels, the decorations on the envelope, if there’s a sketch or photo inside, just the fact that people took the time to write a letter and send it to me,” she said. “My children are only two and four but they are delighted, too, when someone sends them some mail. They carry around the letters and postcards.” Rosnau started writing letters to her best friend when her family moved from Montréal and they have kept up the written friendship. Rosnau’s other letter exchange is now mostly with older relatives without e-mail and she misses her letters. She has saved her letters, including love letters from her husband, and noticed that in the late 1990s e-mail started to replace paper letters. As a writer — she is the author of the novel, The Sudden Weight of Snow, and two collections of poetry, Notes on Leaving, and Lousy Explorers — she loves the written word. Research for a new novel has her searching archived letters, including those in the Vernon Museum and Archives. “I’m fascinated not only by the personal information that’s revealed, but by the different perspectives letters give into world events at the time and by the writing styles of different eras and how they change,” she said. “I noticed that the tone of the letters in the 1920s and ‘30s was very much different. People were more effusively affectionate with greetings like, ‘dearest’ and ‘darlingest love’ and ending with terms of endearment like, ‘with all my heart’ and your dearest friend.’ In the wars, there was a note of anxiety, intense concern because this was the only way to keep in touch and there was always the thought that this might be the last communication with a loved one.” Rosnau also noticed that people seemed to express their emotions much more openly in letters, maybe because these things are now talked about on the phone. “People would sometimes say they were melancholy or exhausted. There was a level of emotional intensity that I wasn’t expecting.” She was touched by the sincerity and permanence of the letters and the glimpse of another time as well as the beautiful penmanship and decided to do her part to promote the fine art of letter writing. “I find that when I actually write a letter with a pen in my hand, it gets me in

Comfort food helps to turn up the heat

N

ovember has arrived and with it my panic just thinking about the winter that might suddenly appear like it did in the east. Good grief, I’m not finished my fall chores yet! Our wharf is still in the water; I just picked the last of my tomatoes, dug my bulbs, and tore out my long-blooming flower plants yesterday. With this in mind I decided I need comfort foods, something to soothe the psyche. Things like macaroni and cheese, or meatloaf

and mashed potatoes, or how about tuna casserole, chicken and dumplings: all do the trick for me. Anything that brings comforting memories from childhood can be called comfort food. Chicken and Dumplings 1 pound medium baking potatoes, preferably russets, scrubbed 2 teaspoons salt 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound), halved 4 boneless, skinless

chicken thighs (about 1 pound) 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 Tablespoons canola or other vegetable oil 1 large onion, chopped 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, minced 1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour One 12-ounce bottle beer, preferably an amber lager 2 teaspoons fresh thyme 2 teaspoons minced fresh sage 2 cups chicken stock

Stir in 1 teaspoon of the salt and the nutmeg, then set aside. Season the chicken breasts and thighs with the remaining 1 teaspoon salt and the pepper.

Masquerade Ball is a hit Morning Star Staff

It’s not every day you see Marie Antoinette dancing alongside Capt. Jack Sparrow or James Bond bopping beside the Queen of Hearts, or even Cinderella cavorting next to Fred Flintstone. But that’s exactly what was seen recently as the Family Resource Centre hosted its inaugural Masquerade Ball at Paddlewheel Hall. “With the Young’Uns playing, as only they can, the crowd danced the night away, had lots of fun and also supported a worthwhile cause,” said Jan Schulz, executive director for the Family Resource Centre Society for the North Okanagan. “This was too much fun not to repeat next year — see you there.” The event raised close to $3,000 for the Family Resource Centre, a non-profit agency offering counselling to the community.

Remembering you is easy, I do it every day, but missing you is heartache that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain.

Joyce Needoba & Family would like to express a sincere thank you to all those who sent beautiful flowers, meaningful cards, and the large amount of people from near and far that attended the Celebration of Life for Don. I would like to express how proud I was of our daughter Tarra who gave an excellent and loving Eulogy with the memories of growing up with her dad. To those who spent time with Don - Steve, Jim, Dwayne, Bill Robertson, Ross & Bill Johnson. To our comics Lynne Proznick who told whopping lies about me but spoke well of Don, and then came cousin John Sharp who reminisced of the times growing up with Don and his brother Larry, his memories were really hilarious and the crowd appreciated his humour. Many people have told me they enjoyed the speeches and felt happy to know that Don had a very happy and eventful life. A huge thank you to all of our friends and neighbours who provided food prior to the service and again at the gathering after at the house. Your generosity will not be forgotten and Don would have been proud to call himself your friend. Last but not least, a huge thank you to my artistic friend Kelly Megyesi for all the time and effort she put in while designing the beautiful program that was handed out at the service.

Can Hypnotherapy help with migraine headaches?

Yes. Hypnotherapy can help to eliminate or lessen the pain from a migraine. Clients have experienced a 75% lessening of migraine pain and have been able to switch from prescription medication to over-the-counter medication. Freedom from pain, or a lessening of the pain is possible without the use of drugs. Release pain from your life. Gift cards for hypnotherapy sessions are available.

Q: A:

Purchasing & Marketing Director, Certified Interior Designer

I’m shopping for a dishwasher and I want one that is QUIET, what should I look for?

Dishwashers are all rated with a decibel rating and can range anywhere from 69 to 39db. Quietness also depends on insulation and wash systems. Some machines have macerator blades that dispose of food waste, where others have bottomless filters in which the food breaks down and is disposed down the drain. Macerator blades work effectively however filter systems are quieter. Kitchen Aid and Bosch are brands of dishwashers that are known to be quiet. Come down and see our selection and we can help you find a dishwasher that suits you!

Q: A:

2009 Busines/Professional s of th Award! e Year I have heard that drywall imported from China is contaminated and making people sick, what do you know about it?

What is known so far about contaminated drywall from China is this. The drywall was imported from China between 2001 and 2007. Research shows that some may have landed in the prairies and some in the Toronto area and possibly the lower mainland of B.C. The drywall was made using gypsum that was first used in slurry containing carcinogens to de-sulphur coal. The chemicals remaining in the drywall are toxic enough that as few as three sheets can contaminate a home to the point it may need to be bulldozed. This drywall is found to emit toxic hydrogen sulfide gas as well as other sulfide gases. These gases are alleged to cause health conditions and illnesses, such as headaches, dizziness, and shortness of breath, eye irritations, insomnia and respiratory issues. The indications in homes are blackened, scorched wiring behind switch plates and wall plugs, it causes air conditioning coils to fail, computer wiring to become faulty as well as damage to the wiring of other appliances. Some have noted the smell of sulphur in the home. So far none has turned up in the Okanagan that I am aware of. However do your homework; if you are doing renovations or building new, find out where your drywall was made before you purchase or install it. Remember, when in doubt ask an expert.

Both of these methods are an affordable addition to your traditional marketing strategies.

“helping you find the answers”

Having a Physiotherapist assess children who complain of “growing pains“ is a good idea. “Growing pains “ refer to generalized discomfort felt in children’s legs at night. 3-5 yr olds are most commonly affected and they may recur between 8 and 12. Notice these ages relate to times of large growth spurts? One of the explanations for these odd pains is that the long leg bones grow in length first. The muscles which lay over top of these growing bones don’t grow at same rate. The growth imbalance can cause tight, crampy, achy muscles. During a kids active day strain is put on these structures that are growing and changing at a rapid pace. A Physiotherapy exam can identify tight muscles and give a few pertinent stretching exercises. The best approach for these youngsters is a warm bath before bed, light massage and following up with stretches. Then lights out for a good sleep!

Mobile Websites - With the explosion of mobile phone use, the biggest challenge right now is that many existing websites are not suitable for viewing on a smaller screen. Mobile websites are easier to navigate, load quicker and enjoyable to look at on a phone. Currently 40% of searches for local businesses are done on a mobile phone.

Q: A:

How can I tell the difference from one company to the next as far a quality goes?

Unfortunately you cannot test drive a kitchen or try it on and walk around prior to purchasing so finding the difference in quality to the first time inexperienced buyer is not that easy and it does takes a keen eye to note the differences. First thing I would suggest is to knock on the back centre of the cabinet to determine if it is a solid 5/8 back or just the flimsy 1/8 hardboard. This is key to cabinet construction, strength and trueness to remaining square. Make sure the interior is good quality 5/8 melamine and not white vinyl typical to the low end knock down cabinets. Finished side panels and moldings should be same finish as the doors and not melamine or vinyl wrapped. Door and drawer hardware should be of European origin and not off shore knock offs. Last but not least take a door and angle it towards a bright light to see the quality of the finish. There should be no traces of dust, contaminants or imperfections in the finish whatsoever. There are many more items to test quality that space here unfortunately does not allow for.

Q: A:

BBA, Marketing, Web & Graphic Design Specialist

Are you stuck in a marketing pothole?

Consistency is very valuable to your brand; just don’t use it as an excuse for laziness. It’s easy to run the same ad over and over, but eventually it is tuned out and time for a fresh perspective. I like to call it a marketing pothole that is hard to get out of. If it goes on too long, it actually ends up harming your brand reputation. Change makes people pay attention to your ad, consistency helps them remember it. As advertising guru Roy Williams says “It’s hard to read the label when you’re sitting inside the bottle.” So take a moment and think about the advertising you’ve been running – is it still relevant to your prospective customers? Does it need a little “facelift” or spruce up?

Q: A:

Heather Wiseman Certified Personal Trainer

I exercise regularly, and I eat very clean and nutritious food, yet I can’t get rid of my abdominal fat. What am I doing wrong?

There are three key areas that affect your ability to lose weight: good nutrition, regular exercising, and what is going on internally. You sound like you are being quite successful with the first two. However, how is your stress level, and are you getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night? Because no matter how good you are with the first two, you will keep struggling and see very little success until you include taking care of the area that over-rides everything else... stress management.
