Hundreds gather to mourn tragic losses ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

NATALIA VIGNOLA/MORNING STAR

A large and sombre crowd gathers in Armstrong’s Memorial Park Sunday to share their grief and unite with their neighbours in support and friendship after four recent and tragic deaths that have affected the community.

In Armstrong, green is part of the city’s colours and symbolizes regrowth. A total of 800 green ribbons were made for a gathering at Memorial Park Sunday to honour four youth who died between Sept. 22 and Oct. 31. All 800 ribbons were handed out. “Folks in Armstrong are very supportive and there was a good turnout,” said Patti Noonan, executive director of the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce. “The weather was great, people were respectful and it was good to see people stay afterwards and chatting.” People kept coming into the park, up the back side of the facility and adults sat with children in the playground to listen to speakers at the event put together to honour the memories of Cullen Rowan, 18, who

died Sept. 22 in a workplace accident; siblings Ava-Mae, five, and Austin Claassen, four, who died as a result of a motorhome fire near Lytton Oct. 12; and Taylor Van Diest, 18, who was attacked Halloween night and died later that evening in Kelowna hospital. Police are treating her death as a homicide. The gathering opened and closed with prayers from the Armstrong Ministerial Association, and candles were lit during the ceremony. An open mic was held to give people a chance to speak, and a moment of silence was observed to honour the victims. “I know it helped a lot of people in the community,” said Noonan. “They may not know the families intimately, but they were just feeling they needed a place to be with everybody else and do some soul searching and thinking.”

Homicide investigation could be long-term ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

RCMP behavioural specialists from Vancouver have been brought in to see if they can come up with a profile of the person or persons who attacked an Armstrong teenager. Taylor Van Diest, 18, was found unconscious by a family member and a friend Oct. 31 near the Rosedale Avenue railway tracks shortly before 9 p.m. Halloween evening. She died later that night in hospital. Ever since, police have treated her death as a homicide, and have had more than 40 officers investigating more than 125 different leads. To date, police have no suspect.

“The specialists will look at the information gathered so far by investigators drawn from the community, take it back and hope to come up with a profile of the individual or individuals responsible,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk Monday. What is known, and what has been released by police, is that Van Diest left her home near the intersection of Colony Avenue and Pleasant Valley Road at around 5:50 p.m. and travelled north along Pleasant Valley. She was dressed up for Halloween in a zombie-like costume with make-up. Her cell phone was found by an individual on the street and Van Diest’s family report-

I hope, in this case, that doesn’t happen. The family and the community need to heal. We want to get to the bottom of this case quickly.” Until a suspect is found, Molendyk said it’s very difficult to determine if the attack on Van Diest was random or if she was singled out. Police do believe that somebody knows something about the crime, and are continuing to ask anybody with

People should not walk alone, do not be in unlit areas and call a friend or a parent to give you a ride to where you’re going. A memorial service for Van Diest was held Monday evening at the Hassen Arena. A trust account in the Van Diest name has been opened at the Valley First Armstrong branch.

News Pedal power pushes for road diet plan RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Vernon city hall has been told that not everyone opposes proposed changes to a major road. About 175 people attended a rally at Wesbild Centre Saturday to support bicycle paths and specifically paths along 43rd Avenue, from 27th to 32nd streets. “There are quite a few people who feel strongly about cycling options,� said Gerry Naito, a resident who organized the rally. The city has proposed going from four to three lanes of motorized traffic (one each way for traffic and a centre two-way, leftturn lane) on 43rd Avenue while the rest of the space would be designated for cyclists. Many merchants have criticized the socalled road diet concept and petitioned city hall. But Naito says other views exist in the community. “People are opposed to it for a variety of reasons but often they don’t understand what’s involved in these projects,� he said. One of the goals of the initiative is to link existing bicycle paths on the western and eastern sides of Vernon. Those at the rally also believe the proposal will improve safety and flow for motorists. “When there are four lanes and no leftturn lanes, anyone who stops to make a left-turn or makes a right-turn slows traffic down,� said Kim Young, with the Greater Vernon Cycling Advisory Committee. “As it is, 43rd Avenue doesn’t work well for people wanting to go to the businesses there.� Young says realignment of the road will also provide a larger turning radius for vehicles making right-turns.

About 175 riders participated in a rally in the Wesbild Centre parking lot Saturday. The event supported the City of Vernon’s development of bicycle paths, including along 43rd Avenue. For video coverage visit www.vernonmorningstar.com City council recently delayed a decision on reducing 43rd Avenue from four to three lanes so staff can present more information. “Council wants to make the correct decision for the community,� said Mayor Wayne Lippert, adding that some 43rd Avenue mer-

chants support the changes. The project has been dependent on a federal grant, and Lippert expects it will be part of 2012 budget discussions. “If the gas tax (grant) funds don’t come through, it probably won’t happen right

Skiers will be able to access the 20 kilometres of upper trails by skiing out Cross Mountain Trail, up Cabin Trail and on to Paradise.

ATTENTION HUNTERS:

Activities inside city hall had Vernon’s mayor on the hot seat Monday. Much of the forum at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre saw newcomers Patrick Davies and Rob Sawatzky challenge incumbent Wayne Lippert over staffing levels, taxes and a pay increase for the incoming mayor. “We need to get our house in order and then we can start doing other things,” said Davies, who

called for an external study into city staffing levels. That brought a sharp response from Lippert, who says external audits have been done of departments to ensure efficiencies. “If you are prepared to cut staff, be prepared to cut services,” he said. Davies insisted his goal isn’t to cut staff because they will be needed once the economy improves. “We need to identify what’s going wrong and what’s going right.” Lippert defended the city hiring 54 new employees in recent years, saying some were mandated by the RCMP while others provide services under Patrick Davies contract to adjacent jurisdictions. “We gain revenue from the regional district to help offset our costs.” However, Sawatzky questioned the shift away from a regional economic development function and he blamed Wayne Lippert fighting between Vernon and other local jurisdictions. “If we repair our relationship, we can move forward on our economic strategy,” he said, adding that the outlying areas have land for industry. Sawatzky also took aim at a recent council decision that will see the next mayor Rob Sawatzky receive a four per cent ($2,800) increase in compensation. “Taking that raise in these economic times is bad optics. I would refuse the raise,” he said. If elected mayor, Davies says he would donate the raise to charity. “It needs to be back in the community. There needs to be a two-year freeze on wages until we get the economy going,” he said. Debate at the forum, which drew about 400 people, also revolved around possibly reducing the number of lanes on 43rd Avenue. “The issue is the level of communication and collaboration,” said Sawatzky of concerns from merchants that they weren’t consulted by the city. “We need to deal with the way administration and engineering works with businesses.” Davies slammed council’s recent decision to ask city staff for more information on the plan. “When a 1,000-name petition shows up, why don’t we stop it? Why do we send it back to staff?” he said. Lippert, though, says council has heard from people opposed and in support of the road change. “The decision of council was to look at implementation and public input was part of that. No decision was made just to do it,” he said. “It’s not a done deal and council is listening.”

Councillor hopefuls push for city review RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Many of the people wanting to sit on Vernon council are calling for more scrutiny at city hall. All 15 councillor candidates took part in a forum at the Performing Arts Centre Monday and some are pushing for a review of core services. “When you look at the last eight years, city staff has grown by a huge amount,” said Catherine Lord. “We need to look at what they are doing.” Bob Spiers believes taxpayers could benefit from an independent review of operations. “It could provide different methods for delivery of services. It may identify new sources of revenue,” he said. However, Ruth Hoyte is concerned a review could cost $80,000. “I want to know the clear parameters of a review. If we can learn from other communities (that have done this) without spending the money, let’s do it,” she said. Jonathon McMurray says there is a reason staffing levels have increased at city hall. “Most of the positions are mandated by the RCMP or they are from providing services to the regional district (by contract). They are doing a good job,” he said. Scott Anderson believes a streamlined process for permits and other approvals would benefit the economy. “Some of the red tape needs to be cut. That’s what a core review will do,” he said. Mike Pearson claims Vernon’s construction sector has stalled because building permit fees are the third highest in the province. “I don’t like what’s going on. If we dropped the costs, we may get more development in town,” he said.

The candidates were also asked if they support new facilities for the art gallery and museum. “There are things that will attract people to town,” said MaryJo O’Keefe of cultural amenities and trails acting as an economic catalyst. According to Brian Quiring, access to arts and culture can help keep families in Vernon. “We need to invest in anything that will keep our kids here.” James Todd pushed for consistent funding for culture and college art courses. “If you want to attract business, a vibrant culture is essential,” he said. Jack Gilroy, though, urged some caution. “We’re coming out of a recession, and a gallery and museum are $12 million. I’ll support them if we can find the money,” he said. Shawn Lee was a little more optimistic about the situation. “We can find a way when we work with our regional partners and dedicated people with vision,” he said. Another hot-button topic Monday was the city’s proposal to reduce 43rd Avenue from four to three lanes of traffic. “There are many issues we need to address in a more efficient manner than we did with this one,” said Patrick Nicol, adding that the matter has polarized the community. Lily Kerr questioned bicycle lanes on 43rd Avenue because they won’t be used in the winter. “The merchants don’t want it and council should listen to them,” she said. Poverty was also on the agenda at the forum. “Seniors are struggling. They can’t afford food. We need hard core affordable housing ini-

tiatives,” said Kelly Fehr. Juliette Cunningham says the city developed an affordable housing strategy but current council has let it collect dust. “I’d like to see some concrete things done (with housing),” she said.

A Lake Country couple is facing recommended charges of production of a controlled substance and theft of Hydro electricity after a large marijuana grow operation was taken down Saturday. As a result of investigation, RCMP officers executed the search warrant on the residence in the 9700 block of Santina Road. Police arrested a 34-year-old male and female at the residence after locating almost 1,200 marijuana plants in a sophisticated tworoom basement operation. An illegal Hydro electrical bypass was also discovered inside the residence. The two suspects were later released on a promise to appear in court at a later date to face the drug and Hydro theft charges.

Police officer assaulted ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

He had already been asked to leave a downtown Vernon bar once because police felt he was intoxicated. But things got a little testy at around 1 a.m. Sunday when officers noticed the man a short time later sitting at a table in the same bar, drinking, and tried to arrest him for being in a licensed premises after being ejected. “The suspect shoved an officer into

a wall,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The officer fell down and the suspect took off.” The male suspect, 23, from Lake Country, was apprehended by RCMP a short time later and taken into custody. Once he sobered up, he was released on a promise to appear in Vernon Provincial Court Dec. 27 on a charge of assaulting a police officer. The officer suffered minor injuries to the right elbow, wrist and knee.

Election 101

W

e may head to the municipal polls every three years, but parts of the process remain a mystery. To get prepared for Nov. 19, I touched base with one of the procedural experts, Keri-Ann Austin, Coldstream’s corporate officer. The following information pertains to all jurisdictions and not just Coldstream. Half-Sack Not Required A common misconception is that because there are six councillors in a municipality (four in Lumby), you need to mark an X next to six names on the ballot. But the reality is you can vote for up to six people for councillor. If you only like one, only select one. “Vote for the ones you are comfortable with,” said Austin. “Just make sure you don’t vote for seven Richard Rolke because that will spoil the ballot. Look at your ballot closely.” Identify Yourself There hasn’t been an official voters’ list in most B.C. communities for years so poll clerks will need to verify who you are (even if you live next door to them or are a relative). To help move things along, bring some identification. “My two favourites are a driver’s license and a CareCard,” said Austin. “Picture ID is not required but it’s great because you can see who they are.” Most voters will have also driven to the polls, so automobile insurance papers will work in a pinch. No Corporate Vote Many people believe that owning a business gives them an extra ballot, but there hasn’t been a corporate vote in B.C. since 1993. “That was a provincial government decision,” said Austin. Now if you own residential property in one jurisdiction (as an example, Armstrong), but live in another community (as an example,

Spallumcheen), you can be classified as a nonresident voter in the house’s host jurisdiction. “We need paperwork, like a current year’s tax notice. We need to prove they own the property,” said Austin. There is only one non-resident vote allowed per property, so if a husband and wife or several investors own a home, they must decide who will vote. All of the people on title must give that person authority to represent them. The Great Divide A mailing address is not an indication of residing in a specific community. BX residents may have Vernon as an address but they are in the regional district and can’t vote for city council. Rural Lumby residents may feel part of a broader community but they aren’t electors in the village. Boundaries are invisible so know where you live (most polling stations have maps to help). Patience is a Virtue It may take a few minutes to vote so bring something to read or plug in the MP3. “Registering voters can take time and you will be dealing with staff who only do this every three years,” said Austin. “They are doing the best they can.” It should also be pointed out that the clerks and municipalities aren’t responsible for the electoral process. “These people are doing specific jobs based on specific provincial legislation. The reason for strictness is we don’t want anyone to challenge the election,” said Austin. Trustees Count Too Regional district directors have been acclaimed in the BX, rural Lumby and Cherryville, so residents may assume there is no election going on. But individuals are running for school district trustee in all of those jurisdictions, so the polls will be open. Catch the Wave Yes it’s a cliche but people are dying in Syria or being imprisoned in China because they want freedom. Don’t just sit on the sidelines and let your role in the community go to waste. Get out and vote.

It’s heartening to see that some charges have finally been recommended in connection with the riot in Vancouver following the Stanley Cup final. While some have been anxious for police to recommend charges, it’s good to see they are taking care to ensure processes are followed and the investigation is thorough. However, we can’t help but wonder how long these charges will take to get through the court system and whether any of those charged will see their case dropped because of an unduly long delay in getting the case to court. Although with all the attention given to the rioters and the search and identification of those involved, one would assume these may not be your typical cases. Premier Christy Clark has already stated she wants a show trial for those charged, so one can likely expect that these cases will move quickly. But what will be the cost? We are already seeing cases being dropped across British Columbia because the judiciary has deemed they took too long to get to trial. Without any financial commitment from Victoria to ease the backlog in the court system, how many more serious crimes will go un-prosecuted across B.C. because of a political zeal to focus on the Vancouver riot? Or, conversely, how many of those the premier wants desperately to make an example of will go free because our justice system can’t guarantee a speedy trial for those accused? – Prince George Free Press

Government ignoring solutions

W

hile Minister of Education, George Abbott, is lamenting the lack of funds to address teacher collective bargaining, he conveniently forgets that it was his government that cut taxes for corporations and the highest wage earners in B.C., thereby blowing more than $8 billion from the province's treasury over the past 10 years. Instead, the B.C. Liberals, to balance the budget have been increasing the burden on those who sustain the economy: the working middle class. They have done this through the erosion of working conditions and the decrease in purchasing power of many B.C. citizens. This past April, the B.C. Supreme Court decision found that the stripping of key classroom conditions from teachers contracts was illegal. Through that decision, the government will have to negotiate redress for the loss of $330 million over a 10-year period in public schools. If these funds had stayed in the system they would have kept PUT ROAD ON A DIET Regarding the article "Road Plan Lines Street with Opposition." Our roads are for the use of all citizens to access all areas of the city – 43rd Ave. is an important thoroughfare, not simply access to businesses. The recent protest by 43rd Ave business owners is a classic NIMBY protest. They try to distort issues with inflammatory language like "suicide lanes" (have any suicides occurred on Vernon's other left-turn lanes?) and "We Are the Boss" (wrong – citizens in general are the boss). This section of road has seen declining use by automobiles for some years now. Vernon staff estimate that the vehicle load can easily be carried by two lanes. A center leftturn lane improves access to businesses, it does not restrict access. Turns by long vehicles will remain unaffected: the width of the road will remain unchanged, so how would supply vehicles suddenly be unable to make turns? Business owners even invoke "common sense," as though the creation and maintenance of ugly, noisy, smelly, pollution-addled, vehicledependent, commercially-oriented communities is common sense. Does "the strip" (Harvey Ave) in Kelowna make common sense?

class sizes reasonable and provided the necessary supports including counselling, special education, and library services for students. However, the government has refused to commit any funding for this redress, resulting in teachers having to go back to the B.C. Supreme Court for further clarification of their earlier decision. This past July, a mediator in Saskatchewan determined that the teachers in that province should have wages increased by almost nine per cent over a three-year period.

Business owners claim that bike lanes serve no purpose in a commercial area. Bikes are not just recreational toys. Bikes are tools for transportation that will reduce traffic congestion, decrease smog and particulate pollution, and improve citizen health. Neighborhoods benefit by having safe bicycle routes to all areas of the city, and particularly through difficult areas like 43rd Ave. Continuity is the key - bike lanes help cyclists get through an otherwise hostile area, allowing the entire city to benefit. If those protestors wanted to see what good cycling infrastructure can do, they should bring their "Shame on City Hall" signs to Kalamalka Road, where they would see dozens of bicycles in any given hour – right through a commercial district. Congratulations to city hall for such fine planning there. City council and staff take a broad view to the viability of our community, as opposed to the single-minded interest of a business owner. City staff are transportation professionals who research all available transportation options, measure traffic volumes, quantitatively assess risk and traffic pattern hazards, and make the most reasoned recommendations possible, all for the benefit of

In his decision, the mediator calculated the average wage of jurisdictions in Western Canada noting that B.C. teachers were the lowest paid. With the B.C. government offering no increases in compensation over an unspecified time period, that disparity will grow resulting in decreased purchasing power for teachers as the cost of living continues to rise. In School District 22, annual salaries amount to about $53 million with teachers’ salaries about 65 per cent of that or $34.6 million, most of which is used to support the

the community at large. Mayor and councilors, do what's best for the community at large, and put 43rd Ave on a "road diet." Ward Strong GOING IN CIRCLES Well done — business owners and others who rallied against the proposed changes to 43rd Avenue. That is a busy road all the time and taking away two lanes and creating that suicide left turn lane is asking for traffic tie ups. It would be a waste of taxpayer dollars. I for one, and I know of others, am tired of the wasteful use of our tax dollars to supposedly improve our road conditions. The length of time it is taking to do these projects is also a waste, especially to residents and businesses which are affected. There was no need for a traffic circle on 32nd Avenue and PV Road but we got one anyway. A very definite need was for lights at 20th Street and 43rd Avenue. Which we didn't get. If any further traffic circles are planned, be sure the roads are wide enough to accommodate them. The safety of children attending Harwood School seemed to be a concern and rightly so. However, no lights at 43rd Avenue and 20th Street didn't guarantee their safety and nei-

local economy. As Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz stated in response to the growing inequality in the U.S., “If we just made them (the wealthy) pay fair taxes... if we just made that upper one per cent pay their fair share that would make a very big difference.” It is unreasonable for the government to claim that there are no funds for teachers or public education when it decreased corporate tax rates by an additional two per cent just a year ago and by six per cent over the past 10 years. Corporations in B.C. pay less tax than in any jurisdiction in Canada and nearly the lowest taxes in the developed world. Abbott has a solution to address the court decision to restore services in our public education system and to keep public sector wages competitive. The solution is to increase corporate taxes and income taxes on the wealthiest in our society. Bruce Cummings, President, Vernon Teachers’ Association

ther did narrowing 20th Street. If slowing traffic on 20th Street was the goal, wouldn't a few speed bumps have accomplished that goal at a fraction of the cost of what we got? The lack of parking on 20th Street for the residents and for the BMX racers at Ranger Park is criminal. We encourage youth to be active and productive yet we take away an important convenience for these children's supporters. I drive a small car and have to slow to a crawl to navigate that ridiculous triangle at 25th Street and 30th Avenue. The fire department and ambulance service must love that intersection. More wasted dollars and less safety for the area residents. Another disaster is the entrance onto 27th Street from 25th Avenue. The weeds and snow along the bank on 27th street are often so high I can't see traffic coming up the hill on 27th Street. The old merge lane was so much safer. Again, wasted dollars. Allenby Way seems very narrow. Will two trucks or emergency service vehicles be able to pass each other? Council needs to look at who is working in the traffic department and be very cautious about agreeing to their proposals. Council also needs to talk to residents and businesses before, during, and after these

Blaze destroys workshop

LAKE COUNTRY FIRE DEPARTMENT PHOTO

Lake Country firefighters respond to a blaze Sunday morning on Bond Road at a detached garage/workshop.

ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Moms know best. When a Lake Country mother’s child asked her Sunday at around 9:15 a.m. why steam was coming out of the family’s detached garage and workshop, she went to investigate. The mom quickly determined it wasn’t steam, but smoke from a fire inside the structure, and called the Lake Country Fire Department. “As we were responding to the call, we could tell there was a substantial working fire going,” said Lake Country assistant fire chief Brent Penner of the fire that occurred at a property on Bond Road, backing onto the Davidson Road Elementary School. “We called in another station because we thought the fire might have spread to a residence but that wasn’t the case.” The fire was contained to the garage structure. Firefighters couldn’t save what was inside the outbuilding, which included a snowmobile, lots of tools – the husband is a millwright – and family possessions which had been stored in a large number of boxes as the family was doing work on the inside of their main residence. A trailer containing tools, ATVs and snowmobiles parked right beside the garage was saved by the firemen, as were two RVs on the property. There was no damage to the main residence, and there were no injuries.

Patrick Penner said the fire will go down likely as accidental in nature. “The exact cause, we have not been able to

He is cautious that, following recent reports and comments plus the municipal office situation years ago, the work will go ahead regardless of the outcome of the referendum. Pointing to projects such as the Kal Beach ramp, which was over budget, he also questions the $1.3 million mechanic’s shop price tag. “So how much are they going to be over budget with this mechanic’s shop?” The recently constructed bioswale in Coldstream Creek is another area of contention for Hegler. “They spent $65,000 and they diverted all this storm water away from the creek but they forgot one important thing – the cows up creek dropping patties.”

Past opens up for BX students ROGER KNOX

Join The Team

Morning Star Staff

As she stood in line to pull an item from the time capsule sealed at the school 25 years ago, former BX Elementary Grade 5 teacher Isabel Bunning had memories of putting a running shoe in the capsule. Bunning, who was known in 1986 as Ms. McKenzie, made it to the big yellow Rubbermaid tote box, looked inside and pulled from it, for all of the current students and staff at BX to see, a well-worn Stadiabrand sneaker. The running shoe was one of many items pulled from the capsule, which was put together by staff and students in 1986, and Bunning was one of a number of former teachers who came to the school recently to unveil the capsule’s contents. Now retired and living in North Vancouver, Bunning found out about the time capsule ceremony from an item that wasn’t around in 1986, the Internet. “One of the previous students asked about the capsule on the BX site and wondered when it would be opened,” said Bunning, who taught at BX for 14 years. “I didn’t want to miss this.” To commemorate the occasion, current staff and students dressed in 1980s garb, complete with leg warmers, neon colours, and mullet wigs. Grade 7 students Saige Woodliffe and Korben Mertion wheeled in the capsule which had been sealed inside a wall of the school across from the office in 1986, with specific instructions to open the capsule 25 years later. Current Vernon School District board chairperson, and former BX principal, Bill Turanski had the honour of opening the time capsule. He pulled out the first item, a Vernon Daily News paper from the day with a frontpage headline after strife

BX is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. The school opened in 1961 although the first students actually were attending classes at the Vernon Army Camp until the school was officially completed. Other items pulled from the 1986 capsule

Elders share Shuswap language Morning Star Staff

The Shuswap culture is being passed on to future generations in the Enderby area. The grandmothers of the Splats’in Tsm7aksaltn (Teaching Centre) recently completed a milestone project by successfully documenting 3,360 words and phrases of the eastern dialect of the Secwepemc (Shuswap) language. “These words and phrases will be uploaded to computer and be available online to those wishing to learn the accurate pronunciation of the Secwepemc word/phrase from any online location anywhere in the world,” said Deanna Leon, Splats’in Teaching Centre executive director. “Each word/phrase has been collaborated upon and approved for accuracy and then recorded by individuals from this group of Secwepemc ladies.” This group includes some of the last remaining fluent speakers within the Splats’in tribe and they range in age from 71 to 89. “This dedicated grandmothers’ group has been working on this project under the auspices of the Splats’in Tsm7aksaltn Society for the past year and is comprised of eight fluent speakers, an audio/visual technical team and a co-ordinator (Rosalind Williams) that oversees the project,”

said Leon. The Splats’in band is comprised of 800 members. “We have 15 fluent speakers left. There are 10 fluent speakers of the Secwepemc language who reside in our community aged 65 to 93,” said Leon. “Our dialect, Secwepemctsin, is listed as an endangered language and predicted to become a dead language within the next decade.” The society hopes to continue every effort to save the language from becoming extinct and this project is a major resource to help keep it alive. “We are very proud that we have accomplished the major task of recording our language dictionary and common phrases so it will be preserved for future generations to use with computers, ipads, iphones, schools and homes,” said Leon. The Splatsin Tsm7aksaltn has been supported in this project by the First Peoples Cultural Foundation and the Splats’in First Nation chief and council. To see the online language dictionary, go to www.firstvoices.com and then select “Choose a Language” and click on the Secwepemctsin – Splatsin (eastern dialect) tab.

Dueck rides ‘Freedom Chair’ from Banff to Vernon Sit-ski champion stars in awardwinning film to be screened at Best of Banff KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Josh Dueck is used to being on the podium at international ski events, but the Paralympic sit-skier has found himself on a different kind of stage, make that screen, recently. With an appearance on the Rick Mercer Show, and a silver medal at the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Games, Dueck is now the subject of the film, The Freedom Chair, which just won the award for best film on mountain sports at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, held in the Alberta town this past weekend. And now Dueck’s local supporters will be able to see the film when it joins the lineup for Vernon Search and Rescue’s 20th annual fundraiser, the Best of Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. The first screening takes place Monday at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. “The social media has been going crazy since his film was released in Banff,” said Suzie Sims, film festival coordinator with Vernon Search and Rescue. “Unfortunately, Josh can’t be here on Monday as he has other commitments, however, his wife Lacey will possibly come on stage to help introduce the film and help us with the draw prizes.” Directed and produced by Mike Douglas, The Freedom Chair is 15 minutes long and is tentatively scheduled to show just before intermission at Monday’s screening. The film follows Dueck’s story as a competitive freestyle skier and a coach at Silver Star Mountain, who while demonstrating a jump in 2004, had an accident rendering him a paraplegic. Just nine months later, he was back on the hill. Dueck has since become an international champion for the

Josh Dueck, above, is the subject of the film, The Freedom Chair, which won best film on mountain sports at the Banff Mountain Film Festival held this past week. Nine-year-old Ashima Shiraishi, below, takes a trip to the bouldering mecca of Hueco Tanks in the film, Reel Rock: Origins – Obe & Ashima. Both films are screening as part of the Best of Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre, Monday. Canadian Para Alpine Ski Team, winning the world championships in 2009 and a silver medal in the men’s sitting slalom at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games. Despite his comeback and success in the world of competitive sit-skiing, Dueck still dreams about tackling the backcountry and the steepest and wildest mountains in the world. And as the film shows, with his infectious outlook, he may just catch his dream. The Freedom Chair is one of 10 films to be shown Monday, however, it will be shown again along with more Banff films on Dec. 28 and 29, and the hope is that Dueck will be able to make those screenings, said Sims. (Vernon Search and Rescue has also made the decision this year to screen all Banff Mountain Film Festival shows at the Performing Arts Centre instead of screening its two December shows at Silver Star Mountain Resort as in the past.)

Next week’s screening will offer more tempting visuals for lovers of the backcountry, whether it be skiing, rock and ice climbing, paddling, avalanche rescue and more. And it all aids Vernon Search and Rescue in purchasing new equip-

ment, updating its existing gear (radios, GPS units, dry-suits, climbing ropes, etc.), and for allimportant training upgrades, said Sims. Other films screening Monday include: –– Blue Obsession, showing the beautiful and ever-changing icefalls of Alaskan glaciers, which provide a stunning setting for some unusual ice climbing adventures. –– The winner of the Best Short Mountain Film at Banff, Chasing Water, following Pete McBride, who grew up on a ranch in Western Colorado near the Colorado River. After a life spent visiting other countries to tell stories as a National Geographic photojournalist, McBride decided to follow the river from his family’s ranch to see where it ends up. –– Reel Rock: Origins – Obe & Ashima about nine-year-old Ashima Shiraishi from New York City who has taken the bouldering

It’s been six years since New Clear Sound hit the coffee house circuit in Vernon, but the band is back and ready to percolate some new tunes –– this time at Sneakers Sports Bar Saturday. The local faves, who originally started performing at the open mic night at the former Portillos Coffee House, are recording the Sneakers show live for an upcoming album. “The show this weekend is our big comeback gig. We are really excited to play again as we have been out of the spotlight for too long,” said lead guitarist/vocalist Ted Fox. Fox along with his bandmates, Cameron Lutz (drums) and Cory Myraas (rhythm guitar, vocals), took a year off from performing to finish up New Clear Sound’s latest album, Re-Percussion. The follow-up to the band’s self-titled debut, which was nominated for a 2009 B.C. Interior Music Award for rock album of the year, Re-Percussion is now available at www.newclearsound.ca and iTunes. “We are really proud of this release,” said Fox. “We put a

“This year Ted decided to take things a little more seriously and has retained a manager for the band. That is where I come in. I will be taking over the booking and business end of the band which frees up Ted to focus on the creative side of music. This coming year, and those that follow, promise to be prosperous and fun,” said Illingby.

Besides performing, New Clear Sound’s upcoming year will also bring a new album. “This time we will be doing an album filled with popular covers and tributes. This is for the fans, they ask and we will deliver,” said Fox. New Clear Sound takes the stage at Sneakers, in the Village Green Hotel, Saturday at 9 p.m. This is a 19-plus show.

Film festival offers diverse fare Morning Star Staff

For the past nine seasons, the Vernon Film Society has reeled the best in documentary features, and dramas, for those who like a little “meat” with their popcorn. This year’s ninth annual Vernon Fall Film Festival, taking place at the Towne Cinema Monday, Nov. 14 to Thursday, Nov. 17, is offering a number of side dishes, including some French fare and other tastes from around the world. “The November film festival is our way of bringing in eight topquality films that our regular schedule would just not permit us to show. In a way, it’s a thank-you to our loyal Vernon patrons,” said Vernon Film Society director Linda Wills. The festival opens Monday with the pulse quickening drama The Whistleblower, starting at 5:15 p.m., which follows a Nebraska police office (played by Oscar winner Rachel Weisz) who spends six months in Bosnia as a UN peacekeeper. After arriving, she is promoted to the UN’s gender office, where she begins studying sexualassault cases, and soon discovers that her fellow peacekeepers are involved in a human trafficking ring. The film is followed by the definitely more lighthearted The Trip (Monday at 7:30 p.m.) starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon of Tristam Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story fame. This time, the boys play loose versions of themselves when they are tapped to review fine restaurants through the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales regions of England. Expect a few celebrity impersonations and a lot of bickering along the way. Documentary filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) returns with his latest exploration with Cave of Forgotten Dreams (Tuesday at 5:15 p.m.) In the film, Herzog follows an exclusive expedition into the

American actor Harvey Keitel as a deadbeat dad and compulsive gambler, who years earlier signs his three sons up for unsafe drug tests that turn out to have dire consequences. Advance tickets and passes to the film festival are on sale now at the Towne Cinema and the Bean Scene coffee house. Cost is $7 per film, or $30 for five-film pass.

Nicolas Conard and Werner Herzog discover some of the oldest art made by man in Cave of Forgotten Dreams, one of the films showing at the ninth annual Vernon Fall Film Festival. nearly inaccessible Chauvet Cave in France, home to 30,000-yearold artwork said to be the oldest to have been created by man. French actor Guillaume Canet returns to the director’s chair since his César winning film Tell No One, this time to helm Little White Lies (Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.) The film, which stars Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (Piaf), is sort of a French version of The Big Chill, where a group of longtime friends gather for a summer holiday after the near-death accident of one of their entourage. Another actorturned-director Vera Farmiga both stars in and directs her debut film, Higher Ground (Wednesday at 5:15 p.m.) In the coming-of-age drama, set in the ’60s and ‘70s, Farmiga plays a woman who comes

to live in an evangelical Christian community and has to come to terms with her spirituality and the relationships in her life. French actress Catherine Deneuve plays against type in Potiche (Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.) as a submissive housewife to a wealthy industrialist. When her husband is taken hostage by his striking employees, she takes the reins of the family business and proves to be a remarkably effective leader. Business and personal complications arrive in the form of her ex-lover (Gérard Depardieu), a former union leader. In the same vein as some of Mike Leigh’s finest acerbic comedies, Submarine (Thursday at 5:15 p.m.), written and directed by Richard Ayoade, follows a Welsh teenager who wants to lose his virginity before his next birthday, and prevent his mother

which opens Thursday at the gallery. The annual event and fundraiser provides an exhibition opportunity for members of all ages, whether they are professional artists or artists in training. “The members exhibition is intended to celebrate our talented supporters. It’s our opportunity to support their work,” said VPAG executive director Dauna Kennedy Grant. Formerly known as SmallMATTERS, the members exhibition now allows for artists to submit some of their larger format work, up to 40 inches in height or width.

On display in the Caroline Galbraith Gallery until Dec. 21, more than 70 mostly Okanagan-based artists have provided a variety of work in a variety of media, from paintings and prints to photography and sculpture. All artwork is available for purchase, which supports both the artists and the gallery. Thursday’s opening reception begins at 5 p.m., with food and refreshments. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. Visitors will also be able to view three other exhibitions also currently on display. In conjunction with

the opening reception, artists and guests are also invited to attend a municipal election forum. A moderated question period with Vernon and Coldstream’s mayoral candidates will begin at 6 p.m. “All council and mayoral candidates are invited to attend the opening reception as an opportunity to speak directly to the membership, gallery supporters and the general public, on issues related to the future of arts and culture in Vernon,” said Kennedy Grant.

Governments contribute to Okanagan technology WADE PATERSON Black Press

The governments of Canada and B.C. are helping Accelerate

Okanagan speed up its goal of supporting the growth of local technology companies with a $2.1-million invest-

ment. The funding will come over three years and will be used to deliver support pro-

grams to high-growth technology companies across the Okanagan. “Our government’s priority is working on

creating jobs in our economy, this means focusing on the knowledge industry and technology sector,” said Ron

Cannan, Kelowna-Lake Country MP. “This investment will provide small and emerging businesses,

TELUS employees Surender and Brenda serving at a soup kitchen.

38,827 meals served to strengthen our communities. At TELUS we have always believed in giving back. Since 2000, our employees in Vernon have volunteered 25,000 hours to community projects, such as preparing and serving thousands of meals at community kitchens. Because of customers like you, our employees can put their hearts into lending a hand to the places that keep our communities, and our neighbours, strong.

which are pivotal for our economic success, with the tools they need to grow and create jobs in our region.” Accelerate Okanagan is a not-for-profit organization that supports the acceleration of local startups in the gaming, animation, mobile, web, life sciences and clean energy sectors. Moira Stilwell, B.C. parliamentary secretary for industry, credited Accelerate Okanagan for creating three successful programs in less than a year. “The tech firms in the Okanagan clearly know a good thing when they see it. They’re lining up to take advantage of AO’s support for entrepreneurs, from coaching and mentorship to networking to learning the nuts and bolts of how to build a business,” she said. Accelerate Okanagan CEO Jason Neale believes the investment will help the organization continue its success. “We’ve (already) facilitated an environment to enable the creation of 83 high technology jobs. In a world where it’s very difficult now to get a job, it’s quite amazing that we have this growth here,” said Neale. “I strongly believe with our team and our valuable new funding, that the best is yet to come.” Accelerate Okanagan was formed in 2010 and it serves 2,000 companies and nearly 4,000 entrepreneurs and technology professionals across the Interior.

The VSS Panthers will open the B.C. High School Varsity Football League playoffs Friday in Kamloops against the Nechako Valley Vikings of Vanderhoof. Sean Smith’s Cats earned the first-round berth by claiming the Okanagan Valley Division title (6-1) with a 45-8 grounding of the Okanagan Mission Huskies Saturday at Kalamalka Secondary. Kal (6-1) also advanced to the provincials by stopping the Fulton Maroons 21-7 Saturday. The Lakers, coached by Corrado Felice, meet the South Delta Sun Devils Friday in Kamloops. It was the first time Kal has ever knocked off Fulton in senior AA varsity play. “Winning the Valley championship is a great accomplishment for this team,� said Smith. “They are a tough, hard-nosed group that are not fun to play against and bring their best every week. I’ve been with some of them for three years, and they’ve lost three league games in that time. That’s a credit to their talent level and work ethic.� Nechako Valley finished 5-2 in the Northern Division. Kick-off Friday is 2:30 p.m. at Hillside Stadium.

Vipers look fine after 16 Coach happy as Dec. 1 deadline approaches KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

They have surpassed the quarter pole and while not in first place, head coach Jason Williamson is content with the Vernon Vipers. However, the Dec. 1 carding deadline has in past years been a time when Mark Ferner and Williamson discussed a wishlist, made some calls and bolstered their lineup. Williamson will give this year’s B.C. Hockey League roster “the benefit of the doubt” for now, but said he may tweak things come the deadline. “I think we can beat anybody when we bring our A game, but we just need that every night,” said Williamson, moments after a 5-4 loss to the Chilliwack Chiefs Saturday night before 1,600 fans at Wesbild centre. “We can score goals, as we’ve shown. We just gotta shore up our dee zone. We’re young back there, no 20-year-olds back there. Max (Mowat) and (Ryan Renz) Renzy, are playing a lot and they’re still 18-years-old.” The Vipers were without d-man Brent Corkey and Luke Juha, and forward Aaron Hadley, all in Langley playing for Canada West at the World Junior A Hockey Challenge. Vernon iced the Smoke Eaters Friday night in Trail and showed some bus legs early versus the Chiefs.

LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR

Vipers’ winger Colton Sparrow controls the puck as he tries to get past Chillawack Chiefs’ defencemen Alexandre Perron-Fontaine in BCHL action Saturday night at the Wesbild Centre. Chilliwack got a goal from Derek Huisman (his 10th) in the first minute and then added snipes by Trevor Hills and Mathieu Tibbet before the game was four minutes old. Starting goalie Kirby Halcrow was replaced by Danny Todosychuk after the third Chiefs’ goal. “Bad 10 minutes of hockey and then we tried to ramp it up,” said Williamson. “Not to make excuses, but I think the guys were a little tired and ran out of gas a little bit but then they showed they didn’t wanna be beat, but it was too late. We hung our goalie out to dry for 10 minutes. You can’t fault Kirby I just had to make a change and it seemed to work, Our guys responded but you can’t play 50 minutes and expect to win.” Mowat (1st) and Alex Hagen (4th) scored for the Vipers 68 seconds apart before the first period ended. New Jersey product Peter McMullen scored his first BCHL goal to pull the Vipers even in the second, but the Chiefs went ahead 41 seconds later on Jaret Babych’s second of the season. Malcolm Gould made it 5-3 Chiefs early in the third with Marcus Basara replying for the Snakes with five minutes left, his fourth. “I think we got a little jump on them,” said Chilliwack head coach Harvey Smyl, in his 22nd year in the league. “They looked tired from last night’s game. I’m guessing the travel and that maybe cost them a slow start. We got the jump and I think that might have been the difference in the game.” The Chiefs caught a break in the second period when referee Jim Maniago ruled that Mike Zalewski of the Vipers and David Thompson of the Chiefs staged a fight, and thus gave them ejections. Zalewski is Vernon’s leading scorer, while Thompson, who clearly won the scrap, is a d-man with two goals. It was a battle of New York (Zalewski) versus Philadelphia. The Chiefs, who have eight players from the Quesnel Millionaires of last year, improved to 8-6-0-1, good for a share of fourth place with the Prince George Spruce Kings, who they beat Friday night

in Chilliwack. Smyl is also pretty happy with what he sees at the quarter point, but will likely look to upgrade on Dec. 1. “We’re real inconsistent, we’re up and down We’re still trying to fit everybody in the slots, still trying to figure out exactly where guys need to play and still trying to learn the character of each of these kids. In general, inconsistent, but for the most part, I like the group.” Vernon hosted the Westside Warriors (7-7-0-2) Tuesday night. The Warriors lost 3-2 in OT to the Trail Smoke Eaters Sunday afternoon The Vipers dropped to 11-5 for a share of second spot in the Interior Conference with the Merritt Centennials, who took advantage of the depleted Penticton Vees for a 3-2 overtime road win Saturday night. Vernon product Tyler Steel made 23 saves and earned second star for the Cents (9-5-1-3). Canada West opened the World Junior A Challenge Tuesday night against Sweden and play the U.S. tonight.

Lazar, 16, has 5-7-12 in 17 games, and is a plus-eight. The Oil Kings visit the Kelowna Rockets Friday night...Vernon’s Alex Jewell got his first BCHL goal in Penticton’s Friday night win over Westside. He was one of six affiliates the Vees used with several players busy in Langley...The Vipers, who are 5-5 in their last 10 games, visit the Smokies Saturday night.

Clipper honoured Morning Star Staff

Nanaimo Clippers forward Kyle Kramer is the BCHL Player of the Week. Kramer led the Clips to two wins in three games and was named first star in each of the victories. The Qualicum Beach native began the week with two goals and two assists in a win over Victoria and finished up with a goal and three helpers in a comeback win over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Kramer leads Nanaimo in scoring with 14 goals and 12 assists. Honourable mentions go to Vipers’ d-man Ryan Renz (4A in 3 games), Merritt Centennials’ F Chad Brears (3 G, two GWG), Surrey Eagles’ F Tyler Morley (2+3) and Merritt G Tyler Steel (two OT wins, 1.95 GAA).

Pee Wee Yellow Jackets wear out Colts Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Yellow Jackets brushed back the Salmon Arm Colts 12-6 Sunday to earn a berth in the Southern Interior Pee Wee Football Conference semifinals versus the West Kelowna Sundevils. Vernon opened the scoring on their second possession of the game. Zach Benn took a reverse for a 45-yard run down to the 15-yard line after which Dylan Huber ran the ball in on a 15-yard quarterback sweep. After that, it was a defensive battle until the final two minutes when Salmon Arm broke loose for a 60-yard middle run to tie the game. On the very next offensive play for Vernon, Riley MacGillvray took a wide pitch and scampered 55 yards for a touchdown to put Vernon ahead 12-6. Also contributing significant yards for the Jackets was Issac Olsen who ran for 45 on the day. “Once again, the Yellow Jackets’ ‘Big Mac’ attack defence used the team approach to stop the Colts,” said Vernon head coach Ed Huber. “Defensive standouts were Garret Black-Thomas and Issac Olsen with six tackles each and Thomas Mackiewich with two tackles and an interception. Bryce Turner, Tristen Baker, Kaden Doughty, Thomas Satterthwaite,

Bryce Thachuk and Trey Winstanley also contributed with tackles.” The Valley semifinal goes Sunday afternoon at the Mission turf field in Kelowna. In Junior Bantam playoff action, the Vernon Marauders bested the Kamloops Broncos 58-0 Sunday at Grahame Park. The Marauder O line, consisting of Jett Carey, Hayden McLean, Bryce Goodrich, Mike Tesarski and Daniel Henrie, provided outstanding blocking for both their running backs and their QB. Wide outs Kieran Webster and Mack Henrey, along with slot Josh Hyer, also supplied some key blocks to spring their teammates for big yards. Hard-running fullback Carson Labrecque laid out some punishing blocks, rushing for 65 yards on four carries and scoring three TDs. Jonah Waterstreet played a solid game, with a 44-yard TD run and a 34-yard TD pass reception. Levi Nicholas was also a force, rushing for 50 yards and a TD on three carries, and hauling in two TD passes, one for 50 yards. QB Trey Isaac was good on 4-of-8 convert attempts, 5-for-11 pass attempts and rushed for 115 yards on the day.

Lakers take Fulton gold Morning Star Staff

LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR

Power Christie Allen of the Fulton Maroons punishes the ball against Rachel Penner of the Kelowna Christian Knights Saturday at Fulton.

Power Rachel Von Hahn earned MVP as the Kalamalka Lakers brushed back the Kelowna Christian School Knights 2-1 (18-25, 28-26, 15-13) in Saturday’s thrilling final of the Fulton Maroons Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament. Setter Amanda Bennett of the Lakers joined Libero Jessica Houghton and middle Hana Ouchi, both of Fulton, on the all-star team. The Knights are ranked No 2 in the provincial A poll and they played the AA Lakers tough. “They served well and kept us on our toes,” said Kal head coach Chris Bennett. “In the end, I think that they were not up to our strong offence. Kaelyn Parmelee, Toni Vandenbrink and Daralyn Schepp are three Grade 11s that have really stepped up their game. When they get going, they can offensively dominate a weaker team. They are hard hitters that can be scary for a team with a small block. “ Added Bennett: “Katie Rogers, Jeevan Jaswal, Danielle Fox and Brianna Niehaus consistently passed, served and hit the ball. They play so strong in the background you hardly notice them, but when the pass is on the money and the hitters are in the air ready to hit the ball, someone is going to eat some leather.” Fulton took the bronze medal with a 2-0 (22-25, 25-13) win over South Kamloops AAAA Titans. The Maroons, who got great play from middle Kolby Richter, bowed 2-0 (25-17, 25-15) to the Knights in the semifinals. Kal knocked out South Kam 2-1 (20-25, 25-15, 15-13) in the other semi. The Lakers swept the VSS Panthers, lost 2-1 to Kelowna Christian and iced the Prince George Polar Bears in preliminary play.

of good scoring chances,” said Coca-Cola coach Rob Spraggs. “Great play by the Kamloops goalie thwarted the Vipers and stole the game for Kamloops. The Vipers’ dominance in the third period was started by a couple of great energy shifts by Jaydon Agar, Chad Thomas and Brad Jones. “The other lines fed off of that energy and hemmed Kamloops in their own end for much of the third, but lost it on a goal that seemed to roll up Bruin’s arm and over his shoulder.” The Vernon Home Building Centre Tier 1 Midget Vipers open the Calgary Edge Fall Classic by battling the St. Albert Saints Thursday afternoon.

Columbia Valley’s Spencer Johnston elbows his way into the action as North Okanagan Knights’ Cory Hochhausen struggles to maintain balance and pursuit of the puck in KIJHL action Sunday at Nor-Val Sports Centre.

Knights hold off Rockies Morning Star Staff

Exhausted due to extra ice time, the North Okanagan Knights were told to keep moving their feet and keep plays simple. The advice, from head coach Kris Mallette, worked wonders in a 5-3 win over the 1-19-0-1 Columbia Valley Rockies Sunday afternoon at NorVal Sports Centre. The advice also worked Saturday night, but the shortstaffed Knights couldn’t catch a break in a 2-0 loss to the host Sicamous Eagles. North Okanagan (13-5-0-1) may get some bodies back when they battle the 1-18 Chase Heat Thursday night and then entertain the Revelstoke Grizzlies (12-4-0-1) in a big divisional game Friday night. Both home games are 7 p.m. starts. “They (Rockies) put a scare into us, but our kids played a very systematic game and got the job done,� said Mallette. “We ask them to play the same way no matter how many we have in the lineup.� Mateja Leko scored his 11th and 12th goals of the season in Sunday’s matinee. Singles went to Brett Hawrys (2nd), Nathan Browne (3rd) and Cory Hochhausen, into an empty net (10th). Jordan Simpson, Spencer Johnston and Joe

Colborne replied for the Rockies. It was 2-2 until Leko’s powerplay goal six minutes into the third period. Josh Wickenheiser earned three helpers and Hochhausen had two for the Knights, who went 3-for-5 on the powerplay. The Rockies outshot the Knights 25-18 with Colten Wright taking the win. In Sicamous, Jagger Bowles and Steven Powers supplied the goals as the Eagles moved to 7-11. The shots were even at 31 apiece. Wright went the distance for the Knights. “It was one of those days when the hockey gods weren’t smiling on us,� said Mallette. “We played fantastic. We were doing everything the way we were supposed to, but we couldn’t get a bounce.� The Knights went to Sicamous with just 12 skaters, including eight forwards. Brothers Eric and Patrick Chore are still up with the BCHL Prince George Spruce Kings on an emergency basis, while Thomas Swales, Justin Murray, Brady Janzen, Steve Sipprel and captain Steven Pantazopoulos are on injured reserve. D-man John Saunders was summoned to the Vernon Vipers Saturday night, but played for the Knights Sunday.

A path to a rewarding career

Sookinchoot Youth Centre

CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Alison Lauridsen remembers her father saying, “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” For her and many other adult learners, the path to a job to love has been through Okanagan College. “I had several jobs and I did love them but I always thought there was something else,” she said. When her mother brought by some of her old school things with the childhood ambition, “I want to be a nurse,” written in the books, she knew it was time to act on that dream. “My biggest fear was that I would be the oldest person on campus. I drove up here three times and sat in the parking lot and never came in. Then one day I got up my nerve and walked in and asked, ‘What do I need to do to get in here?’ I spoke to a counselor and told them what I wanted and they made it easy.” Lauridsen graduated from her full yearlong Licensed Practical Nurse Program in August and is now working in a complex care facility. “First, I did the upgrading for two semesters. I was shocked at how easy that was, the teachers were so kind and helpful. I’d say the most difficult part was balancing my home life with kids and husband with my school work. The kids and I would do our homework together. It was a busy time but it was exciting and I made some wonderful friends.” Lauridsen loves her job and is thinking of going back to school to work towards becoming a registered nurse. Candi Kado is doing upgrading courses with the goal of taking some kind of health care professional training. “I took the placement test awhile ago, then I moved and was working so I didn’t do any more about it. When I lost my job, I didn’t want to go start at minimum wage and work my way up again,” she said. She started her upgrading last January and has already completed three years of math, two years of English and a year of biology courses. “The teachers are really encouraging and the tutoring is helpful. I was not working, and living off my savings, so I was able to get financial assistance with tuition, books and travel. That made the difference for me. “I had been out of school for 12 years when I came here and it was a big change but it wasn’t as scary as I thought because there were lots of mature students and it’s an entirely different atmosphere because people here want to learn.” Kado plans to do another year of upgrading before deciding on a program because she feels she needs the background to do her best with her studies and for future employers and patients. She’s considering nursing, or maybe medical lab

An information session takes place Nov. 17. or pharmacy technician programs. “This is all positive. I’m going to have career and financial stability and time with my family.” Craig Smith is adult academic and career preparation coordinator, helping mature students find what they need to get back into the classroom. “More people are accessing the program because of the economy. They can’t find work, or the work they want, or they are underemployed, or want a career change,” he said.

“I spoke to a counselor and told them what I wanted and they made it easy.” — Alison Lauridsen

While many of the potential students have not finished high school, this is not as much of a barrier to further education as it used to be. People can enroll as mature students and take the upgrading they need for specific programs. These courses are offered day and evening so people can take them while working. “It is important to some people psychologically to complete high school graduation and we can help them do that,” said Smith. People can find out more about Okanagan College adult learning programs by coming to the campus office or calling for an appointment. They can take a skills assessment which helps them make decisions and select appropriate courses. All adult basic education courses are free and

some people are eligible for help with other courses/expenses through the Adult Basic Education Student Assistance Program. Students who have diagnosed learning disabilities or physical disabilities can have specialized equipment or someone to help with writing and computer work. There is also tutoring free of charge. “It’s hard work but the students enjoy it. It’s exciting to come back to school and be successful. Our students just out of high school do well but mature students do better and are more likely to get an A or B,” said Smith, who also teaches English. “This is just the best job in the world, you know. People are so happy to have the opportunity and there’s so much energy for positive change and we are all part of that.” He recalls one student who came for an assessment and didn’t get out of the car the first time. The next time, the student got to the room, saw the assessment form and left. It was third time lucky with the assessment completed and the student going on to take courses. In 2007, 190 people took the assessment, with that number more than doubling to 448 in 2010. Some people go on to become students, some go to other learning institutions and some come back later. Okanagan College hosts an Adult Learner Seminar Nov. 17 at 5 p.m. at the Vernon Campus. Representatives from Adult Basic Education, Trades, Continuing Studies, Business programs, admissions, financial aid and academic advising will be present to answer questions about programs, registration and assistance. Dropins are welcome, but pre-registration is encouraged to ensure that everyone can be accommodated. Pre-register by calling Tawnya Cameron at 250-545-7291 (ext. 2309) or e-mail tcameron@okangan.

Soups are the perfect winter warm-up

riday is Remembrance day and it is my hope that a majority of Vernon residents will come out to the ceremonies to honour and remember the brave men and women who sacrificed so much for the freedom we enjoy in this country today. This week also marks the 14th anniversary of my writing this column and as is my habit this time of year, I’m offering a couple of recipes for homemade soup. Few foods offer the same comforting feeling of a good homemade soup. Foods made with love and thoughtfulness toward who will be eating it also bring a good measure of positive energy and healing to both the body and the soul of the recipients. Energy sent out into the world works that Cathi Litzenberger way, so remember to think positively when stirring thoughts into your recipes. The potato soup recipe below is certainly not for the diet conscious except as a wonderful treat, and that it is. If you wish, you can omit the bacon fat and use melted butter with little change to flavour. The super-easy vegetarian crock pot recipe is perfect for a main dish meal and if you’d like to make it even more filling, add extra vegetables of your choice. With the cold weather descending on us this week it is a great time to look through our recipes and have on hand ingredients for making a hearty soup at least once a week.

Community lends support to JDRF Morning Star Staff

The Okanagan community gathered recently at the Coast Capri Hotel in Kelowna, for the Sixth Annual Starlight Gala of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). More than 200 people — business leaders, local politicians, families and friends — united to help raise $125,000 in support of JDRF’s mission to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications. The theme “Discover the Faces of Diabetes” was brought to life as kids from the Okanagan community took the stage to thank the guests for their support. “The gala was a success on many different levels and we are so grateful to each donor,” said Pam Prentice, senior fundraiser and development coordinator at JDRF. “The result of this year’s Starlight Gala is an inspiring milestone not only for JDRF, but for our community, in increasing awareness for this significant cause and continuing to raise funds to direct towards diabetes research.” April Steed, chairman for the Kelowna chapter of the JDRF, said the speed at which the research is accelerating is extremely promising and exciting.

“In fact we are currently conducting over 50 human clinical trials, compared to five, 10 short years ago,” said Steed. “We have developed vaccines that show promise of not only preventing, but reversing type 1 diabetes. “In trials right now are an artificial pancreas that will decrease the burden of those living with type 1, and perhaps eliminating all complications.” JDRF would like to thank the organizers, volunteers and donors for making this year’s Starlight Gala a resounding success. ■■■ Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Type 1 diabetes strikes children and adults suddenly, leaving them dependent on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. While the causes of this process are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. Learn more about JDRF at www.jdrf.ca

News More new homes to be hammered out

Morning Star Staff

Housing starts in British Columbia are forecast to increase in 2012, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s (CMHC) latest report. “Population growth, stronger employment growth and favourable mortgage interest rates are expected to support demand for new homes in 2012,” said Carol Frketich,

CMHC’s BC Regional Economist. According to the Housing Market Outlook British Columbia Highlights Report, housing starts are forecast to increase to 28,500 homes in 2012 from 26,600 homes projected to get underway this year. This pick-up in residential construction follows a period of stable home building in 2011. Single-detached home starts moved

higher in the second and third quarters of 2011, but will remain below their 10-year average level, as competition from a well supplied existing home market holds back housing starts. Job creation and population growth will boost single-detached home starts in 2012. Multi-family home starts will continue their upward trend during the forecast period.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Being a bit of a risk-taker can be both good and bad, depending on how you handle things. If you gamble on yourself, it’ll be OK, but wagering on others could be another story. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you have an important matter hanging fire, it behooves you to press for closure while things are going your way. Don’t hesitate to be firm in your commitment. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You have a special ability to sway others to your way of thinking and doing things. You can easily convince them to back you in whatever important project you choose. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Don’t waste the day playing or doing nothing, because it could be one of your better times for developing financial and material opportunities. You need to make hay while the sun shines. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Whether you’re the quiet type or one who makes a lot of noise, your presence is apt to be far more strongly felt than usual. You’re likely to make a statement that won’t go unnoticed. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Being both pragmatic and prudent gives you an edge in dealing with financial conditions. This is clearly a day to sit down and work on moneymaking possibilities.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may need reminding how essential it is to be hopeful regarding the outcomes of important matters. Positive thinking will work wonders. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Don’t shy away from competitive situations, because challenges stimulate you to accomplish big things. When you try, Lady Luck will get involved in your interests. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In order to spur you onward, you should find some challenging outlets that stimulate you both physically and mentally. It’ll be just such kinds of situations that can encourage and inspire you.

Bridge by Phillip Alder IF ONE FAILS, TRY THE OTHER Joey Adams, a comedian who died in 1999, said, “Of course, it’s very easy to be witty tomorrow, after you get a chance to do some research and rehearse your ad libs.â€? At the bridge table, it is very easy to play perfectly tomorrow, after you know where all of the cards lie. The secret of success is making your contract today, before you have seen all of your opponents’ cards. In this six-no-trump contract, how should South plan the play after West leads the spade 10? North used Stayman to see if there was a 4-4 heart ďŹ t, because then six hearts would probably have been a better contract than six

no-trump. South starts with 11 top tricks: two spades (given the lead), two hearts, three diamonds and four clubs. The best chance for another winner is to ďŹ nd East with the heart queen. So declarer covers the spade 10 with dummy’s jack and captures East’s king with his ace. He then leads a club to the dummy and plays a low heart to his jack. Here the ďŹ nesse wins, but what would declarer do if West produced the heart queen and led another spade? Now there would be only one chance: a red-suit squeeze. South must hope that the opponent with four (or more) diamonds also holds four (or more) hearts. Watching only for

heart discards, declarer would win the second spade on the board, play a heart to his king, cash the other three clubs ending on the board, and take the heart ace. Is the heart six high? If it is, cash it and claim. If not, play out the diamonds, hoping that the six takes the last trick.

The Day We Were Remembered (by - Matthew Marioni)

“In memory of the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in military service.” “Lest we forget.”

LEST WE FORGET Mike Jalonen, Immediate Past President of the Vernon Legion Branch 25, presents Matthew Marioni with a Certificate of Appreciation for his submission of a poem which was entered in the Royal Canadian Legion Annual Poster and Literary Contest in support of Remembrance Day.

VERNON FUNERAL HOME & PLEASANT VALLEY FUNERAL HOME

“Take The Time To Remember”

What do I know about Remembrance Day? I know about WWI and WW II It was on a test in Social Studies Class Personally, I can’t remember I wasn’t there and I don’t know them Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t get it Everybody tells me “Remember Those who died on the battlegrounds And be glad it wasn’t you” I grew up in a generation of forgetfulness Of people who don’t care and who say “I wasn’t born, so why should I care” The answer...because we couldn’t help them We couldn’t aid or encourage them We couldn’t even give them hope I live in a generation of Ignorance Of acceptance that the past is the past That the present is the present A generation that does not dwell or care Yet is taught to remember What we want to forget.... When the day is over we resume our lives Treading on every corpse Left behind and forgotten We pretend we know nothing The nothing that liberated, loved Fought and died for us We must not forget The day we were remembered By the forgotten souls...our friends Lest we forget....Lest I forget

In Flanders Fields (by - Lt. Colonel John McCrae) In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place: and in the sky The larks still bravely singing fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead: Short days ago, We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved: and now we lie In Flanders fields! Take up our quarrel with the foe To you, from failing hands, we throw The torch: be yours to hold it high If ye break faith with us who die, We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields

REMEMBRANCE DAY MEMORIES Here it is November again! This is the time when a lot of us think back to those bad old days of World War II. We were just coming out of the Depression when the war started. It seemed that when war was declared, it was no time until our lives changed forever. We were all urged to do our very best to support all those who were going overseas. Even in our little community in Northwestern Saskatchewan, our younger folks were going to “join up” in droves. In Lloydminster, the train left near midnight. If some of the neighbor boys were going, a big group of folks managed to get to town to see the ‘boys’ off. At home on the farm, rationing began. We all had ration books, mostly used for sugar and tea and coffee for us on the farm. Although we were rationed for meat and butter too, it didn’t make much difference to us farmers. And then gasoline was rationed. We each had a two inch sticker posted on the windshield to show what classification we were in. It was A or AA, for cars, and a big T if you had a truck. Farm trucks were allowed more gas. Lots of us cut the car down and converted it into a farm truck. The bigger your car, the better truck it made! A Graham Paige car made a dandy farm truck. The next thing was all the ladies knitting socks for soldiers. Directions and regulations arrived, with explicit instructions for the knitting. The wool they sent seemed rather scratchy to me. As a matter of fact I still have that booklet of instructions! Very often, when a farm wife finished knitting a pair of socks, they would put a note in the toe with their name and address on. An overseas soldier, hungry for company, would often send along a ‘thank you’ note. My mother did that once, and got an interesting reply from a lonely guy overseas. Remember the ‘War News’? Those who had no radio soon got one, so they could keep up with keen interest with the news that changed daily. The weekly papers all had diagrams showing where the fighting was taking place. These diagrams were posted up on the wall over the radio. They showed ‘The Maginot Line’ and similar spots ‘over there’. They used big black pincer arrows, showing the progress. Lots of the girls had a pen pal overseas in the service, and letters went back and forth weekly. Another thing which began then was Blood Donor Clinics. People would flock into town to the blood clinic. I remember you could not have a full meal before donating blood, just a piece of dry toast with no butter! And I remember those sad lists in the paper, edged in black, showing the names of those who gave their lives in the battles over there. Letters of condolence were written and sent to their families. All of us, it seemed were writing to a soldier ‘overseas’. But I was just a boy then! I remember, years later, one of my fellow workers asked me what branch of the service I was in. I replied, ”Oh, Ray, I was much too young for that!” Much hilarity! One of the most memorable days was when “the boys came home”! Big social evenings were held with celebration of the end of hostilities. But, you know, when they did come home, there wasn’t much work, so a lot of the ‘returned men’ found jobs far away. All of us, I’m sure, remember with deep gratitude, the ‘boys who went over in the war’. We are still grateful. We are planning to go to the Cenotaph on November 11th.
