Athletes score hall of fame honour L ROGER KNOX

Morning Star Staff

arry Kwong brought the house down at the Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame induction luncheon Wednesday. The Vernon native, 88, who became the first Chinese Canadian to play in the NHL, had already received a standing ovation from the capacity crowd at the Schubert Centre for his induction. Then, as he fumbled with his speech and reached into his jacket for his large magnifying glass to read the speech, he floored the crowd with his opening line: “God, getting old is the s---s,” said Kwong, accompanied to Wednesday’s induction luncheon by his daughter and two granddaughters. Kwong helped the Vernon Hydrophones win provincial midget and juvenile hockey championships in the mid-1930s (the other surviving member of the Hydrophones, Don Saunders, flew up from Vancouver for the luncheon). He later signed with the New York Rangers’ farm team, the New York Rovers. In 1948, he was called up by the Rangers for a game in Montreal against the Canadiens, and only played one minute in the third period. He was introduced Wednesday by student Gavin Donald, who has pushed for nearly three years to have Kwong inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame. “I thought my sports career was ancient history,” said Kwong. “Being here today is special. I am blessed to be remembered by my hometown, and happy to be here for this special occasion. It’s an honour to be inducted with these fellow athletes and builders.” Kwong was one of seven athletes inducted Wednesday, along with one builder and two teams. Each inductee was introduced with either a photo slide show or video presentation, created by Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame committee member Chad Soon, and each received a special commemorative award created by Vernon’s Blair Peden. Vern Dye and his son, Wayne Dye, were inducted posthumously into the builder and athlete categories, respectively. Vern founded the B.C. Hockey League and the Vernon junior franchise, while Wayne was drafted in two professional

He is also the all-time leading scorer in Vernon junior hockey history, and was named Vernon’s athlete of the century in 2000. “On behalf of the Dye family we accept these inductions,” said Wendy Gilroy, Vern’s daughter and Wayne’s sister. “Both our father, Vern, and brother, Wayne, would be proud and honoured to receive this induction today.”

Rhythmic gymnast Camille Martens, many times a Canadian champion, a Commonwealth Games gold medalist and who represented Canada at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, was humbled to be included among the 2011 athlete inductees. “This is partly my award and partly everybody here’s award because there was a phenomenal amount of support that

went into making my dreams a reality,” said Martens, who owns her own rhythmic gymnastics club in Vernon. Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame cofounder Chris Nelson flew up from Victoria for the luncheon to induct Vernon skier Rob Boyd, who was unable to attend.

News Liberals deny dawdling over end to HST RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster denies the government is dragging out removal of the HST. The NDP has called on the B.C. Liberals to expedite the process to scrap the harmonized sales tax after a majority of voters endorsed extinguishing the tax this summer. “We’re doing it as prudently and quickly as possible. It’s not an easy fix,� said Foster. “There is a regulatory process to follow and we have an agreement with the federal government and we need to renegotiate.� Ottawa provided B.C. with $1.6 billion when the province entered into the HST. “They will now want part of that back and we’re trying

“We don’t want to make things worse by moving quickly.� — Eric Foster to do the best we can for British Columbians,� said Foster of working out terms with the feds while ensuring fiscal needs during the economic downturn. The NDP claims a delay in removing the HST is hurting the economy and forcing the public to continue to pay for a tax they oppose. “The Liberal government is playing games by saying it

will take more than a year-and-a-half to remove,� said Mark Olsen, local NDP candidate. “Meanwhile, ordinary people are still paying this tax and the delay is costing BC jobs and economic activity.� Olsen wants Foster to be more vocal in representing constituents. “Mr. Foster needs to immediately act on behalf of the people of Vernon-Monashee and get his government to take this seriously and act quickly to abolish the HST,� he said. Foster says he has been contacted by North Okanagan residents questioning the timeline for ending the HST. But he insists there is a need to consider all financial factors while moving towards that target. “We don’t want to make things worse by moving quickly,� said Foster.

Lakers also make hall of fame roster Continued from A1 Boyd, who learned to ski at his family’s ski hill, Tillicum Valley, and who, today, lives in Whistler where he coaches young skiers, went on to national and international fame as a member of the Crazy Canucks downhill squad, highlighted by his World Cup win on his home course at Whistler Mountain in 1989. “It takes a village to raise a child and my extended family at Tillicum helped me,� said Boyd in a speech read by Nelson. “I have this village of Vernon to thank for an upbringing that brought me well on my way to obtaining such lofty goals which never would have happened without such support.� Boyd’s parents, Sandy and Molly, were in attendance and accepted their son’s induction award. Vernon Kokanee Swim Club alumni Gary and Steven Vander Meulen shared Boyd’s sentiments as they also couldn’t attend. Gary lives and coaches in Scotland while Steven is busy coaching in Victoria. The two brothers, the only brothers to represent Canada in swimming at the Olympics (Seoul, 1988), were represented by their parents, Gus and Joan, and sister

The Vernon Lakers hockey clubs of 1989-90 and 1990-91, back-to-back Centennial Cup Canadian champions, were inducted in the team category, and were represented by coaches Eddie Johnstone and Keith Chase, players Murray Caton, Duane Dennis and Jason Elders, trainer Vic Chenier, and Janet Hackman, daughter of the Lakers’ then-

owner, Mel Lis. “Mel was the backbone of those squads,� said Chase. “He knew when the players were being released from other leagues, knew all of the scouts. He had an unbelievable passion for the game.� Enderby baseball star Kevin Reimer was also inducted. He spent six seasons in the Major Leagues with the Texas Rangers and Milwaukee Brewers. Reimer was unable to attend Wednesday’s ceremony. The inductees will have a permanent home in the Hall’s display cases, located at the Wesbild Centre.

Rhonda’s Tip of the Week. Owning a pet can be a dominate factor in deciding what type of ooring you are going to buy for your home. CARPET is a comfortable surface for pets but can harbour pet dander and be difďŹ cult to maintain. BAMBOO can be strong enough to handle pet scratching and occasional accidents but may dent in high trafďŹ c areas so choose a bamboo ooring that is durable enough. CORK has a pliant surface and is hypo-allergenic and antimicrobial making it great for pets and their owners. HARD HARDWOOD is a popular choice however choose the harder types such as Brazilian Cherry.

LAMINATE is usually less expensive to buy, install and repair making it a popular choose with many pet owners. High pressure laminate, generally come with a higher price tag. LINOLEUM is a good choice for pet owners as it is environmentally friendly, water-resistant & hypo allergenic. TILE ooring is made of ceramic, porcelain or stone which are durable and resist a great deal of wear and tear. VINYL is durable and affordable making it a good choice for your home, your pet and your budget. You can get the look of hardwood, tile or stone without the cost.

Even though there was a Grinch-like theme, nobody stole Armstrong’s Christmas spirit Thursday. And it may have been exactly what the community needed. Rocked by tragedy over the past two months, including the unsolved murder of a teenager, Armstrong officials asked the community to come out and help celebrate life during the annual downtown lightup and tree lighting festival. The theme for the evening was Whoville, inspired by the Dr. Seuss Christmas classic, How The Grinch Stole Christmas. The crowd was estimated at more than 2,000. “It was a spectacular turnout, we were really impressed with the turnout,” said Patti Noonan, executive director of the Armstrong Chamber of Commerce, which helped organize the event. “Everybody was great, everybody came out and supported the community. I think it’s a sign of what our community is known for. We all come together when we have to.” Community leaders and health officials encouraged residents to take part in the festival as a way of coping with the homicide of Taylor Van Diest, 18,

Federal crime bill draws fire RICHARD ROLKE

JENNIFER SMITH/MORNING STAR

Protestors gather outside Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes’ office Thursday to stand against the Conservative’s crime legislation and encourage proactive measures against crime.

Morning Star Staff

The federal government’s proposed crime legislation has some residents taking to the street. About 25 people protested against bill C-10 in front of the office of Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes Thursday. “If we stand idly by while the government passes the crime bill and they see no one opposed, they will think it’s OK,” said Priscilla Judd, rally organizer and a restorative justice facilitator. The omnibus bill includes individual legislation that would establish mandatory minimum penalties for existing offences related to child exploitation, create mandatory minimum sentences for serious drug offences by gangs and possibly lead to adult sentences for young offenders convicted of serious violent crimes. Vernon was one of 120 communities across Canada that experienced rallies coordinated by Leadnow. ca and Reclaim Our Democracy Canada. “A prison is not a solution to crime,” said Judd. “We want restorative justice. We need to address substance abuse outside of prison. Education helps people from getting into crime.” Robin LeDrew, a social worker, believes a strict focus on punishment doesn’t encourage people to abandon crime. “People’s lives are forever sidelined by early criminal activity and they are not fully functioning members of society,” she said. Resident Bob McInnes attended the rally because he opposes the government closure of programs that develop agricultural skills among inmates. “You don’t rehabilitate people by warehousing them. You rehabilitate them by giving them something to do when they get out,” he said.

Roar, you Lions, roar

S

omewhere along the way in my life I memorized the lines to the B.C. Lions fight song. If you want proof check out the video on our website at www.vernonmorningstar.com under NFL picks (I know it’s the CFL and usually we do the NFL but it is Grey Cup weekend). It may not be good singing but, hey, at least we know the words. And that will come in handy this weekend as the Lions take on the Blue Bombers of Winnipeg at B.C. Place this afternoon for all the marbles (actually there are no marbles involved, just an old beatGlenn Mitchell up trophy) in the 99th Grey Cup. Come on and roar you Lions roar, that’s what a Lions roar is for, From the mountains to the sea, you are the pride of all B.C......... I also memorized a couple Shakespeare soliloquies along the way too but they will come in less handy this weekend. Unless the Lions happen to lose of course and then To Be or Not to Be.... may prove to be useful. Of course I’m kidding but I must admit that all the hype and almost every prediction about the Lions winning easily makes me nervous. It kind of reminds of the Canucks going up against the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup finals. That was supposed to be a sure thing, especially after a 2-0 start, but does anyone remember how that one ended up? And yeah, everybody’s already writing the story about the Lions’ 0-5 start and how they’ve come back from the coaches almost getting fired to Wally Buono being carried off the field into retirement as a Grey Cup champion. Sounds great. But, wait a minute here. Did anybody check out how the Lions did against the Bombers this year? I believe it was two losses (both before the Lions’ 10-game winning streak).

MITCHELL’S MUSINGS

Everybody talks about the Lions defence but the Bombers is just as good, especially against the Lions so far (which in the CFL means keeping the score against under 30 points). And don’t you think Buck Pierce wouldn’t just love coming back to B.C. and winning the big game against a team that gave up on him? And Winnipeg was 4-14 last year. From the bottom to the top in one year is a pretty good story too. And anybody who knows football, especially Canadian football, knows that all it takes is one fumble, one interception, one point, or even one too many guys on the field (sorry Riders fans) to decide the outcome of a single game. But that’s also what makes sports and a onegame championship so wonderful too. Unlike your favourite sitcom or even your favourite movie, anything can happen. It is unwritten. In fact, oftentimes if it was written ahead of time no one would believe it (sorry again Riders fans, although it should be noted I lived through the Lancaster-Reid era when the Lions always lost to the Riders, often, at least in my memory, in the dying seconds when it looked like a B.C. win was assured, heavy sigh). So if the Lions win, which they should and I hope and predict (how does 27-17 Lions grab you?), I’ll be a happy guy, along with most of the rest of the province. It will also take some of the sting out of the Canucks loss, but, of course, not totally as they’re not quite on the same level. They’re also not related in any way, so don’t tempt fate or destiny or whatever word comes to mind by pre-ordaining today’s outcome of a football game because of any Canucks’ loss. Yes, the Lions can and should and maybe even will win today but Winnipeg and the way the football bounces will also have something to say about that. So enjoy the game, and the food and the drink and all this great Canadian tradition has to offer. Oh, and go Lions go. Come on and roar you Lions roar.....

Premier Christy Clark’s announcement that a municipal auditor-general will be appointed is good news for taxpayers, and it could be helpful to municipalities as well, should they choose to adopt a conciliatory approach. When Clark suggested this new office, many mayors and councillors condemned it, stating that their expenditures were already audited. This is disingenuous. A year-end audit by an accounting firm is far different from specific performance audits of specific programs. Year-end audits pronounce judgment on general financial management, and rarely single out specific programs. On rare occasions, auditors will include a note about a specific program that raises some questions, but it is not part of their job to follow up. A municipal auditor-general should be able to follow up on some of those types of “flagged” issues, as well as issues that are raised by taxpayers. Some of these may revolve around specific programs, particularly ones where accountability is less than transparent. Both provincial and federal auditors-general have performed many such valuable services, and the small amount it costs to run their offices has been more than justified by the savings they have identified. It can be safely said that they are one of the very few branches of government with a mandate to try and save money for taxpayers. If municipalities accept the reports and advice from the new auditor-general, it could go a long way towards improving their financial management. It will also help them to be more accountable to taxpayers. — Langley Times

Skilled workers drive the economy

T

he prospect of economic meltdown indicates to me two major but separate problems. The first is financial and we can do nothing about that. However, we can concentrate on the second, and that is to change the way we operate in the business community to improve skills, diversity and productivity and save our own necks. Using their statistics, the government has decided that there are too many people unemployed. So following the lead from the U.S., they are pouring huge amounts of money that we haven't got into stimulus packages, creating overtime possibilities for large construction organizations. Will it help create more jobs? Doubtful. These types of businesses usually need skilled workers and Canada is desperately short of skilled workers. Will it change or help the 15 per cent of unemployed 18-to-24-year olds? Almost certainly not. And, when the money runs out, what then? There is nothing I have heard that suggests to me any real understanding, by either government of the difficulties faced by the people in the workplace, and what changes need to be made. I listen to lots of commentary on business and the economy, and I have come to the conclusion that we need a "Dragon" to take charge of the business community. Mark Carney advises the government on finance. The business community and its destiny are seemingly of no concern. Regardless, Canada is, without a doubt, in an ideal position to become a leader of major world players. We are blessed with having avoided the financial crisis which others are in, we also have an abundance of natural and human resources, but we have to work harder, much harder, at becoming best. We need

BIKE PATHS One thing about bicycle paths, the city will have somewhere to pile their snow this winter. Wilma Dean THE GIFT OF LIFE To all those looking for the perfect gift this year for family and friends, I suggest the device that turns all electronics into hands-free. It seems people are not getting the message. After your friend or family member has disabled or, worse yet, killed themselves or a perfect stranger, that all-important text or call won't really be that important anymore. Please use good sense and try and obey the rules of the road. Most of us, no matter how smart we think we are, can't multi-task while driving. Employers who have company vehicles with their logos on the vehicle should also be supplying hands-free devices or banning the use of hand-held electronics

a leader with a plan, someone who knows where we should be going and how to get there. The workplace is just about coasting. Coasting to me means going downhill, eventually we will reach the bottom and stop, unless we do something really positive to turn it around. One thing we could do, that we could all be part of, is to introduce proper work training for all our young people. To do that we have to dispense with the outdated myth that work skills are learned in college. Thirty-plus years ago, the computer generation needed college-based skills, that era has gone. Right now, the need it to train our talented young people on the job in order that our existing industries can diversify and expand. We have to grow from within. That is where the jobs are now, that is where they will be tomorrow and in the future. It is our work skills that will push us ahead of the pack when the turnaround comes.

while working. Remember the use of handheld devices while driving is against the law. Drive safely and be mindful of others who share the road with you. Bonnie Mitchell GOING BEYOND Two of my friends took me to O'Keefe Ranch for the brunch as it was my birthday. We were so impressed by the wonderful selections of food and the yummy desserts. Hats off to the chef. We then had the guided tour of the house which had a gorgeous piece of furniture which played a very large disc of music. I then purchased a cassette (yes, I can still play cassettes) of the said music at the old store. We then ventured on our own to explore the old buildings (church etc.) There is so much history there that I did not know about.

Upon returning home, I discovered that I had lost my cassette. I phoned the ranch and they could not find it but offered to deliver one free of charge. What a thoughtful gesture. Happy birthday to me. Thomasina Douglas UNBEARABLE IDEA Dear Senator: Your proposal to switch our national animal the beaver for a polar bear lacks merit. The English language includes such phrases as - busy as a beaver and - beavering away Is it not a positive creature for us to compare ourselves to? Are we not industrious and forthright as Canadians? If you or other senators have trouble filling your working days, there are a myriad of concerns to be tackled. 1. 850,000 Canadians are now using the services of food banks.

From the mass of information on the government websites, it is easy to find that only four out of every 100 schoolleavers do apprenticeships and obtain red seal trade certificates each year. Having done that for 30 years and now in the midst of a demographic change, is it any wonder we are struggling to find skilled tradespeople? The skilled people leaving the workforce now have about 45 years experience. They, according to the government, are supposed to be replaced by kids with a few months at college. A 40 per cent success rate is poor by any standard, but four per cent is ludicrous. Why are our business leaders so indifferent? Why do they put up with such nonsense when their business future is at stake? It's time to say, enough is enough. Skilled workers are the engine that drives the economy. We will be going nowhere unless, and until, we understand the simple lessons on what we need to do to survive, then take the necessary steps to do it. First, the need is to provide a job with work skills training for every school-leaver. That training to be done in the workplace on the job, working with skilled people, getting the mature guidance most young people need at that age. It is not rocket science and is very do-able and would cost a fraction of the present cost. I am concerned because after two years of lobbying, I am virtually alone in my assessment of this situation. Please somebody tell me I am wrong and explain why. I'll be happy to apologize for wasting a lot of people's time. If not, and you agree with me, help, no, help yourself. You know the people who are running this show. Roy Humphrey

I have lived here in Cherryville for eight years now, and in the last 12 months, a new food bank and now a thrift shop have sprung up to meet families' needs. It is clear to me that thrift stores are now a growing industry. Perhaps you and your colleagues could research the root causes and attempt some solutions to a growing issue. 2. Twenty-plus years ago, various governments decided to close as many mental institutions as possible to save money. It was thought that as long as those who needed medication stayed on it, they could integrate into the community just fine. Today, we have such areas as the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver, and the prisons are full of such unfortunates. I would suggest that some political will applied to such issues in Canada would be far more deserving of your energy than swapping a beaver for a bear. Donna Whitta

“Please continue to be part of the discussion.” — Glenn Mitchell ticular – the fact that visitors are allowed to post anonymous comments. The policy has led to some unpleasant and mean-spirited postings. It’s also raised an inconsistency in Black Press’ newspaper brand. “Our community newspapers don’t print anonymous letters, yet we’ve allowed our website to become a place where people can hide their identity while occasionally taking

shots at one another,” said Glenn Mitchell, managing editor of The Morning Star. “Starting Dec. 1, that policy will change.” People will only be able to comment by using their Facebook account, which means their name, often even their photograph, will be linked to the statements they post. The Morning Star and vernonmorningstar.com is not alone in making this shift.

Several media companies, equally troubled by the vitriolic trend of anonymous comments, are turning to Facebook to power their website commenting. All of Black Press newspapers in B.C., Alberta and Washington State have made the switch. The Morning Star’s sister publications have continued to see spirited discourse among those who post comments, yet the discourse is at a much higher level, and commentators are generally well-mannered and on-topic. This new approach won’t be perfect. People without a Facebook account won’t be able to participate in online discussions. “Still, we’re enthused

to be in the vanguard of this movement,” said Mitchell. “It shows we’re listening to our readers and responding. It places us more deeply into the powerful world of social media: by using Facebook Comments, we’re embracing a social medium with 800 million users worldwide.” For those who choose not to create a Facebook account, remember, The Morning Star will continue to run Letters to the Editor in print – you can submit them to the newsroom here. “So please continue to be a part of the discussion,” said Mitchell. “Your comments are part of an important dialogue that enlivens and enriches civic life in our communities.”

The commission brought in about $10 million for the region’s economy this year by working with animated companies, as well as the $1.5 million film Flicka 3 (starting Lisa Hartman Black and her husband, country singer Clint Black), which shot in the Okanagan this fall.

Local lawyer to lead program Morning Star Staff

A North Okanagan woman will play a leadership role in encouraging the legal profession among aboriginal people. Lawyer Rosalie Wilson, who is a member of the Okanagan and Shuswap nations, has been hired by the Law Society of B.C. to develop a mentoring program to support aboriginal lawyers. “I believe it’s in the public interest to have strong aboriginal representation among lawyers,” she said. “Increasingly what was once thought of as aboriginal issues are becoming issues the whole community cares about. An example of this is the missing women’s inquiry.” Wilson will consult with aboriginal lawyers to develop mentoring

options, models and best practices. Currently, aboriginal lawyers are significantly underrepresented in the legal profession and the Law Society says this has important implications regarding access to culturally appropriate legal services. In addition, the soci-

ety believes the public is best served by a more representative and inclusive profession. “We are very concerned about the cur-

rent situation and that’s why we are taking immediate action with this program,” said Law Society president Gavin Hume.

Rural building permits down ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Building permit numbers for regional district rural areas are shockingly low for Spallumcheen’s mayor. Will Hansma was reacting to township administrator Lynda Shykora’s report on October’s building permits for rural areas. In the township, nine permits were issued for a total of $578,904. In October 2010, nine permits were issued for just under $900,000. Through October 2011, the township has taken in nearly $4.7 million in building perWill Hansma mits, compared to $8.5 million a year ago. “It shows how poorly the economy is doing,” said Hansma, who was also referring to the overall numbers that take in Armstrong, Enderby, Lumby and electoral areas. So far, in 2011, there have been 337 permits issued for a value of just more than $29 million. A year ago, through October, 370 permits had been issued for $64.6 million Road work under budget Three major road projects in the Township of Spallumcheen in 2011 all came in under budget. Public works manager Ed Forslund told staff that the Salmon River Road rehabilitation project, budgeted at nearly $1.5 million, left more than $100,000 in surplus. “The actual expenditures for the Salmon River Road project were $1,366,577.13, leaving a surplus of $100, 644.87 in the project budget,” said Forslund. Full-depth reclamation and asphalt paving to extend the limits of the Salmon River Road project

to Hallam Road, as well as a 750-metre section of Powerhouse Road, was also approved by council. There was $313,300 budgeted for that project, and it came in at $288,137.45, leaving more than $25,000 in surplus. Work on Chamberlaine Road was budgeted for $12,790, and that came in at $11,860.37, leaving a surplus of just shy of $1,000. No big impact with Resource Roads Act Proposed changes to B.C.’s Resource Roads Act will not have a major impact on the township. The province is currently reviewing maintenance and liability of natural resource roads. Among the key issues the province is trying to address is ensuring resource roads are built and maintained with due consideration to environmental impacts, and ensure that roads are open to everyone except as required to protect the road. The province plans to identify one designated maintainer for each resource road who will maintain and repair the road. While numerous towns and municipalities in B.C. are accessed by resource roads, and could be impacted by the proposed changes, public works manager Ed Forslund said the township is not the primary user of any local resource roads. “There are two resource roads entering the township, one at the top of Chamberlaine Road and other off Back Enderby Road,” said Forslund. “The only impact that there could be on Chamberlaine Road would be no access for recreational users if the province deactivated the road.” Baker Road, which enters the township at Back Enderby Road, is currently restricted by a locked gate, noted Forslund in his report. Council voted unanimously to send a letter to the province asking that the township be notified and consulted before any proposed changes to any resource road bordering the township are made.

Playground equipment ‘dilapidated’ ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Changes to a pair of McLeod Subdivision playgrounds are in the works in Spallumcheen, thanks to outdated, potentially unsafe equipment. A request was made by the Municipal Insurance Association of B.C. to the township to survey the two playgrounds at Lockhart Drive and at the intersection of Lockhart and Sidney Crescent. In a memo to staff, public works manager Ed Forslund said based on the risk evaluation outlined in a report received in September, repairs to the grounds and fencing are required, and that the playground equipment should be upgraded. “The equipment is dilapidated, it doesn’t meet Canadian Safety Association standards, it’s an old wooden structure with the possibility of slivers and it’s beyond repair,” said Forslund to council. “It needs to be taken out before someone gets hurt.” Council passed one

resolution to remove all of the playground equipment immediately to reduce liability, and will explore available grant funding for the purchase

head coach Heather Semeniuk. “I’m pretty happy with the way they played.” Third-year guard Michelle Clark led Regina with 14 points, while five other Cougars reached double digits. The Heat were led by fourth-year guard Madison Kaneda, a Vernon product, with a game-high 15 points and 29 minutes. Second-year Krystal Schouten (Winnipeg) and fourth-year Roslyn Huber (Kelowna) added 10 points each. Vernon’s Emily Kanester had six points. The Heat entertained the 0-7 University of Brandon Bobcats Saturday night. The Bobcats bowed 114-58 to the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack Friday night at the Tournament Capital Centre in Kamloops. It is the first time a TRU women’s team has recorded 100 points in a game since they joined CIS seven years ago. The WolfPack, now 3-4, were up 31-20 after

TRU had six players in double figures, including Vernon Panthers’ grad Diane Schuetze, who delivered 16 points and a gamehigh 13 rebounds. Jen Ju (4th year, guard, Vancouver) had 20 points. Vernon’s Britney

Walton, a rookie forward, collected her first CIS basket and added a steal in four minutes of playing time for TRU. “Brit is battling a little bit of shin splints right now so we had to limit her minutes. She was effective in guarding Brandon’s top player,” said TRU coach Scott Reeves.

The North Okanagan Knights served notice Friday night that they belong with the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League elite. The Knights used goals from six different skaters as they battered the league-leading Kamloops Storm 8-2 Friday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. With Storm starter Lyndon Stanwood signing full time with the BCHL Trail Smoke Eaters, North Okanagan wasted no time getting pucks at netminder Wade Moyls, who gave up eight goals on 19 shots. Singles by Sean Mulcahy and Josh Wickenheiser, and a pair by Patrick Chore had North Okanagan up 4-0 after the first period. “We just shot the puck and it seemed like a lot of them were going in,” said Knights’ head coach Kris Mallette. “The momentum that we gained just propelled us.” Kamloops responded with a powerplay goal from Zach Tjader in the second frame, but Vernon’s Ryan Scheidt, recently acquired from the Chase Heat, came right back for the Knights with his firstever KIJHL goal in his team debut. Call-up Mat Lambert, another Vernon native, earned the assist. “He (Scheidt) had a very good debut. He set the bar for himself,” said Mallette. The Knights’ Eric Chore, Brady Janzen and Brett Hawrys of Armstrong scored just over two minutes apart early in the third period. Kamloops’ Ryan Skinner put one by a rocksteady Dustin Nikkel (24 saves) midway through the final period. The 16-8-0-1 Knights visited the 17-50-1 Revelstoke Grizzlies Saturday night at the Forum. The two teams battle again Wednesday in Armstrong.

Midget Vipers tackle desert tourney Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Home Building Centre Midget Tier 1 Vipers recorded a win and a loss on opening day of the Arizona Thanksgiving Shootout Friday in Phoenix. Vernon grounded the AHSHA Premier Scorpions of Phoenix 5-3 Friday morning before falling 4-3 to Salt Lake City, Utah’s Regulators U16 AAA squad that afternoon. Patrick Dove, assisted by Justin Mitchell, opened the scoring in the first period against the Scorpions. A few minutes later, Mitchell circled from behind the net and ripped a shot top shelf to make it 2-0. Braydon Sophonow added the Vipers’ lead before the Scorpions solved Vernon Tier 2 call-up netminder Bruin Stair with

five minutes to go in the period. Sophonow, assisted by Cody Hendrickson, made it 4-1 after 20 minutes, but the Scorpions rallied with two quick goals early in the second frame to pull within one. Dennon Leibel buried the rebound off a Ryan Beach point shot to complete the scoring three minutes into the final period. Jim Armstrong’s Vipers, who later watched the Canucks trounce the Coyotes 5-0 in NHL action Friday night at Jobing Arena, and met Coyotes’ captain Shane Doan after the game, fell behind the Regulators late in the first period and couldn’t recover. Logan Geefs, assisted by Austin Krahn, scored late in the first period, but the

Regulators restored the lead in the second. Just 90 seconds later, a strong forecheck by Hendrickson followed by a feed to Sophonow resulted in a sharp-angle goal. Salt Lake City took added two more goals before Hendrickson, assisted by Beach, rounded out the offence. Stair was outstanding in facing 38 shots. Meanwhile, the Vernon Seed Orchard Sharks pounded the Winfield Bruins 7-0 in Pee Wee Super League action Friday night. Game MVP Molly Crandlemire buried four goals for the Sharks, who got other offence from Hannah Scherck, Brittany Jackson and Brooke Berube. Lexes Adams chipped in with two assists as did Erin Poland, Cathou Bauml and Chelsea McCaig. Bailey Berndt earned the shutout.

SilverBacks sting Snakes in OT GRAEME CORBETT

NATALIA VIGNOLA/MORNING STAR

Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Vipers were 43 seconds away from a much-needed B.C. Hockey League win. Instead, they watched in dread as Sean Flanagan forced overtime with a powerplay point shot, followed by first star Devin Muller’s breakaway buzzer beater to give the Salmon Arm SilverBacks a 3-2 decision Friday night at Wesbild Centre. “I didn’t know I had only 1.8 seconds left,” grinned Muller, a shifty Swiss forward in his second year with Salmon Arm. “I probably wouldn’t have done this move had I seen how much time I had left.” The Vipers (13-9-0-1), winless in their last five, tangled with the Gorillas (7-12-0-5) Saturday night at the Sunwave Centre. Despite being short-benched and heavily outplayed in the opening two periods, Salmon Arm came back to snap a fourgame skid. “I feel real good for the guys,” said SilverBacks’ head coach Colin O’Hara. “We don’t deserve to be in the hockey game after the second period with the way we played. We’ll take the two points. We needed it in a real bad way.” Salmon Arm’s Garrett Hendrickson, with his third goal, opened the scoring on a first-period powerplay, converting a feed from Kody Dhaliwal in front of 1,900 fans. The goal came just seconds after the Vipers’ Brendan Persley had his backhand attempt denied by Kurt Williams (33 saves) on a shorthanded 2-on-1. From then on, it seemed like a matter of time before the Vipers would respond. And they did early in the second period, getting two goals just over a minute apart from Darren Nowick, his 16th and 17th of the season. The Long Beach, Calif. product chipped a rebound over Williams for the first goal at 2:44, and then showed good hands in tight after taking a feed from point man Brett Corkey during a man advantage. Desperate, and perhaps sensing the Vipers were sitting back a bit in the third,

DAYS the SilverBacks started pressing. They held Vernon to just two shots in the frame. “We saw the best of the Vipers in the second period, but they sat on the lead in the third, I thought, and didn’t direct a lot of pucks to the net,” said O’Hara. Flanagan’s equalizer, his third goal, came with Williams pulled for the extra attacker. Viper defenceman Geoff Crisfield, who delivered one of the game’s hardest hits, rocking Jeff Kennedy right in front of the Salmon Arm bench, admitted the Vipers let one get away from them.

“It’s disappointing. We carried the play most of the game, but didn’t do what we needed to do in the third period. It came back to bite us in the end,” he said. SNAKE BITES: A six-pack of Vernon junior A franchise players made the BCHL’s all-time top-50 after thousands of votes were cast during a six-week poll. Wayne Dye, Tom Serviss and Ernie Gare, all of the Vernon Essos, Dallas Drake of the Vernon Lakers, and twins Connor and Kellen Jones of the Vipers all made the cut.

At T-Bone’s, quality is more than a word; it’s their passion and their promise that follows through their store from top to bottom. That is why, since 2004, they’ve become the leading supplier of aged, grain-fed Alberta Beef to Kelowna’s, Westbank's, Penticton's, and soon, Vernon's most demanding connoisseurs of meat and gourmet food products. At T-Bone’s they know advertising is word

Smokehouse ribs, stuffed peppers and zucchinis, roasted garlic potatoes, stuffed mushrooms, and the largest selection of meat pies in the valley.

The Unplugged program, operated by Venture Training Recycling, provides a way to get rid of old or unused small household electrical appliances. “It’s surprising how many people don’t know that they can bring these things here for free. A lot of people don’t want to take them to the dump so they just keep them cluttering up their closets and storage space. They are really surprised to learn how many things can be recycled now,” said Ed Columbus, director of operations for the program. The program accepts both items that are not working and those that are still working. Items can include just about anything that plugs in except for major appliances. Columbus hopes that there will some day be another program where things that are

The good news is the highest number ever of shore spawning Okanagan Lake kokanee returned this fall to lay their eggs before dying. The bad news is there was the lowest return of stream spawning kokanee since the crash in kokanee populations in the big lake in the early 1990s, when only 6,000 to 7,000 were counted. This fall, only 18,000 stream spawners returned to lay eggs, while 276,000 shore spawners flooded the shorelines around the lake, reports Paul Askey, fisheries stock assessment biologist with the ministry of forests, lands and natural resource operations. “They’re probably almost saturating the lake,” he commented. And, they could be giving the stream spawning kokanee stiff competition for available food in the lake too. Askey says in some parts of the lake the shore spawners are like “urban kokanee. They’ve become hard to count amongst the docks jutting out into the lake,” he commented. However, the size of the shore spawners is small. Most are around 23 centimetres in length, so they make great rainbow trout feed, but they’re not much sought-after by anglers. On the other hand, the stream

spawners range in size, but average about 26 centimetres. Some can be 50 centimetres and lots are longer than 30, so they’re much more attractive to anglers. He figures they range in age from three to five years, while the shore spawners are two or three. With that number of kokanee in the lake, Askey is satisfied that the lake is doing well sustaining them, a concern that resulted in the creation of a 20-year action plan in 1995 to work on bringing their numbers back up again. One of the factors cited in the studies done as a result of that plan was the introduction of mysis shrimp in 1965, as feed for rainbow trout. It was found instead that the introduced crustacean actually out-competed young kokanee for feed in the lake. “Mysis definitely knocked back the lake’s productivity, but they do show up in kokanee bellies,” commented Askey. He wonders if kokanee are beginning to learn how to use them in their diet, now that their numbers are back up. Although a decision hasn’t yet been made, Askey expects a summer kokanee fishery will be opened again in 2012 on Okanagan Lake. A ban on fishing for kokanee was instituted in 1995 because of the crash in their numbers.

November is Rotary Foundation Month What is the Rotary FoundaƟon? The mission of The Rotary FoundaƟon is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of educaƟon and the alleviaƟon of poverty. One such program is to build cultural understanding one student at a Ɵme; this is accomplished through the Rotary Youth Exchange Program. Kalamalka Rotary has had the pleasure of hosƟng many Rotary Exchange Students throughout the years. Last year we hosted Pierre, a ciƟzen of Belgium, to our community, province and country as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student. Pierre spent a year living with host Pierre with Beth Marks, President Kalamalka Rotary families in our community and aƩending our local schools. As Club at the Kalamalka Rotary Dream Auction. an ambassador for his country, Pierre taught us - Rotarians, host families, fellow students and other exchange students from around the world that he met - about his country, culture and ideas. It is an excellent experience that helps bring the world closer, as well as making some good friends in the process. The Rotary FoundaƟon is a not-for-proĮt corporaƟon supported solely by voluntary contribuƟons from Rotarians and friends of the FoundaƟon who share its vision of a beƩer world. Pierre’s warm welcome - Kalamalka Rotarians and host families. What is your vision for a beƩer world? The Rotary FoundaƟon’s Group Study Exchange (GSE) program is a unique cultural and vocaƟonal exchange opportunity for business people and professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 who are in the early stages of their careers. The GSE program provides travel grants for teams to exchange visits in paired areas of diīerent countries. For four to six weeks, team members experience the host country’s culture and insƟtuƟons, observe how their vocaƟons are pracƟced abroad, develop personal and professional relaƟonships, and exchange ideas.

Rotary GSE Team Member Bridget Egan distributes juice at the Muradpur Blind School in Chittagong, Bangladesh.

Derek Hall of the Rotary Club of Vernon recently led a GSE team comprised of Canadians and Americans to Bangladesh. One of the team’s visits was to a school for the blind and deaf in ChiƩagong. A Rotary FoundaƟon grant had been made for a Braille Embosser which can transfer computer generated text into printed Braille output. The new embosser supplements an old exisƟng one operated by the headmaster of the Muradpur Blind School. That old embosser was unable to keep up with the demand for Braille educaƟonal and other books. The new embosser allows capacity to circulate Braille books throughout Bangladesh.

Missing ‘chair’ found PETER KENDAL Special to The Morning Star

Jan and Iny Kamerbeek: married Nov. 30, 1951.

Jan and Iny Kamerbeek celebrate 60th anniversary.

Kamerbeeks celebrate 60 It is with great pleasure that the children of Iny and Jan Kamerbeek announce the 60th wedding anniversary of their parents. The happy couple was married Nov. 30, 1951 in the Netherlands. They set sail for a life of adventure in Canada during the fall of 1953. They settled into their first home in Grande Prairie, Alta., where they endured the frozen north while creating fond memories, for 10 years. Opportunity and warmth drew them to the Okanagan, where they settled into the Coldstream area. Here they raised their five children, Hank Kamerbeek, Margaret (Kardelis), Betty (Klassen), Marianne (Stone) and John Kamerbeek. They now enjoy living on the beautiful shores of Kalamalka Lake in Oyama. The family that has blossomed to include 51 loved ones was able to gather this past summer to celebrate the anniversary of such a wonderful couple. “Mom and Dad are a true example of a love and laughter ever lasting. We wish them all the best, with lots of love from all your family.”

I do not envy those who write the headlines that we read in our newspapers. They have to encapsulate a story or the main part of a story into as few words as possible while still retaining their readers’ attention and interest. They are limited, among other things, by printing deadlines, paper space, and editorial policies. Their task is almost impossible to do without arousing some sort of sentiment in those readers. Such feelings may include anger, disgust, agreement, horror, amusement or puzzlement. So many differing feelings within so many varied readers. Certain headlines have achieved a degree of fame that approaches immortality, like that which appeared many years ago in an august British paper saying “Fog in the Channel. Continent isolated.” These writers or composers do their best, but does anybody ever try to write a story based on what the headline tries to tell them? Rather than the headline trying to shorten a genuine story into a few words, put the process in reverse with some strange results for the story. What got me thinking was the front page headline in a recent Morning Star

that announced “Three seeking mayor’s chair.” It will be clear to readers what is meant, but I let my imagination wander (or even run riot!) as to the events that could have caused this report. Here is a possible original version of events. “This morning the mayor was horrified to discover when he entered his office that his chair was not at his desk as usual. A searching look around the room confirmed that the chair was missing. Before reporting this to the nearby RCMP office the mayor enlisted the help of a male staff person and a passer-by (who had just stopped in to pay a parking violation fine) to find the chair. In spite of a thorough search of the town offices by the three men, they could not discover where the chair was. Any assistance from the public in locating the chair or solving its disappearance will be welcome. Meanwhile the hunt continues and the passer-by has been temporarily employed in a new job as a TSDD — Trainee Seating Device Discoverer. The mayor’s office has been provided with a temporary replacement chair so that his duties may continue with the minimum of interruptions. When asked for his comments, the old mayor said that he would like to have his old chair returned and wished the other two

chair-seekers the best of luck in their continuing quest. We will keep our readers informed of the progress of enquiries. Following the recent civic elections it is not clear what action will be taken by either the new mayor or the displaced mayor for their personal civic seating arrangements.” Apart from the above flight of fancy I thought that it would be more entertaining if the event had occurred in Northern Lancashire where it may have had the headline “Whur’s the Mur’s Chur? It’s not thur!” This serves as an example of British dialects, as in my RAF billet there was a lad from Warrington (North Lancs) who always pronounced any sound of “ai” as “u.” This even extended to his surname that although he spelled it “Aris,” he always pronounced it “Urris.”Actually I like the sound of “The Mur’s Chur” better than that of “The Mayor’s Chair!”

Job action has trips in holding pattern TRACY HUGHES Black Press

Plans for educational student trips to destinations like Italy, Japan and Quebec are up in the air due to uncertainty surrounding teacher’s ongoing job action with the province. North OkanaganShuswap trustees recently clarified that their approval for trips is contingent on teachers being willing to continue their participation and not being restricted by job action. The board had previously given approval for the trips based on the understanding that the teachers making the request would oversee the organization of the trip, participate in the activities and be responsible for the safety of participants. There is concern from trustees that potential escalating job action would prevent teachers from participating. A planned Salmon Arm Secondary trip to France has already been put off until next year, as planning for the journey was still in the early stages and it was felt the potential impacts of job action could become an issue. Trips that could also be impacted include the SAS trips to Italy and Inashiki, Japan; A.L. Fortune’s trip to France; Pleasant Valley Secondary’s trip to

No one has a crystal ball,” says Bennett, who notes that teachers willingly take on these types of education trips on their own time and without financial compensation to enhance student learning and enjoyment. “I do recognize the difficult position this is putting the teachers, parents and kids that have put money together for these sorts of trips.” Contingency plans are now in the process of being developed in case job action does get

to a point where the participation of teachers in these trips is excluded. “Some boards in the province have cancelled all field trips. At this time, our board has not considered this action,” says Dave Witt, school district superintendant.

Morning Star Columnist

Christmas is less than a month away and many homes are already beginning to enjoy the smells that come from baking their favourite cookies. As for me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m only at the stage of making my lists for the season, well, except for these cookies that I needed for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column. I wanted to try a number of favourite internationaI Christmas cookies and started with five recipes. It was not a good day for me as the only one that worked as written was the Scottish shortbread. Good old reliable Scots! The Polish cookie would have been fine except I used freezer jam: not a good idea as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too runny, luckily I managed to salvage enough for the photo. The German cookie was far too soft to hold a proper form and I remade that one with one of my proven recipes. The first Norwegian recipe I tried was far too stiff to go through a cookie press as directed and the Swiss cookie dough was so sloppy it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be rolled out even when chilled, in fact it was a complete disaster that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even salvageable. So just remember, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for recipes on the Internet, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;prize winnerâ&#x20AC;? may be just that, or on the other hand, it could be missing ingredients or not properly tested! Here are four that did work for me. Polish Cream Cheese Kolaczki 1 (8-ounce) pkg. cream cheese, softened 12 ounces (3 sticks) butter, softened 3 cups all-purpose flour 2 (14-ounce) cans fillings of choice (apricot, prune, raspberry, etc.) Confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar Granulated sugar Mix cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add flour 1 cup at a time and mix well. Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out dough 1/4-inch on a surface that has been dusted with equal parts confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and granulated sugars (not flour), because the granulated sugar will act as ball bearings and help keep the dough from sticking. Cut into 2-inch squares. Place 1/2 to 1 teaspoon filling on centre of each square. Overlap opposite corners of dough to the center over filling. Bake for 15 minutes or when corners start to brown. Cool and dust with confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar. These tend to become soggy if held for several days, so store them tightly covered (or freeze) without the confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar. Dust with confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar just prior to serving. Makes about 5 dozen.

Polish Cream Cheese Kolaczki, German Vanilla Half Moons and Scottish Shortbread are Christmas favourites that have made their way to Canada from countries around the world. Scottish Shortbread 2 Ÿ sticks butter Tiny pinch of salt ½ cup fine/caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting 3 ½ oz. cornstarch/cornflour Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F In a large bowl, cream together the butter, salt and sugar until light and fluffy and pale in colour. This can take at least 10 minutes. Alternatively, use a food mixer. Mix together the flour and cornstarch and sieve into the bowl of butter and sugar. Mix quickly and thoroughly to bring all the ingredients together but do not over-mix. Tip the mixture onto a lightly floured work surface and knead lightly and quickly to form a loose dough, then use one of two methods: Method one: Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper to Ÿ-inch thick. Prick the surface all over with a fork. Cut into desired shape or rounds using cookie cutters. Place the Scottish shortbreads on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for

25 minutes or until pale brown and crisp. Sprinkle the warm Scottish shortbreads with fine sugar and leave to cool on a wire cooling rack. Method two: grease a Swiss roll tin 9â&#x20AC;? x 13â&#x20AC;? with butter. Press the dough into the tin and press with your fingers to level the surface, prick all over with a fork. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown. With the shortbread still in the tin, cut into squares or fingers; leave to cool for 15 minutes then carefully remove to a wire cooling rack. Store in an airtight tin or box. German Vanilla Half Moons 3/4 cup butter, softened 1/2 cup white sugar 2 egg yolks 1 1/2 vanilla beans, divided 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup ground almonds 2 cups confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar for rolling In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg yolks one at a time. Split the half of vanilla bean and scrape the seeds; stir the seeds into the butter mixture. Mix in

the flour and ground almonds. Divide the dough into two pieces, wrap and refrigerate until firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Break off tablespoonful sized pieces of dough and roll them into little ropes about 2 inches long. Bend the ropes into a half circle and place them 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned. Scrape the seeds from the remaining vanilla bean and stir them into the confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar. Carefully roll warm cookies in the vanilla sugar. Norwegian Spritz Cookie 2 cups butter, room temperature* 1 cup granulated sugar 1 egg, well-beaten 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 cups sifted all-purpose flour * You must use butter in this recipe. The secret of a great spritz cookie is a dough that is fat enough to press or pipe yet sturdy enough to hold its shape in the oven. It must be butter, not margarine. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Refrigerate UNGREASED cookie sheets until ready to use. NOTE: Pressing the dough out onto cool, ungreased baking sheets makes it possible for each application to stick on contact. You will need to clean off the cookie sheets between batches. In a large bowl, mix butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar; cream until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well; stir in vanilla extract. Gradually add flour to mixture, beating well after each addition. The secret lies in the dough, which should be neither too soft nor too firm. If it is too soft, the cookies will have no definition, and if the dough is too firm, the cookies will bake too dry. To test the doughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consistency before baking a batch, press a small amount of dough through the cookie press cylinder. If the dough is too soft so that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go through cleanly, chill the dough for about 15 minutes. If the dough seems too firm, stir into the dough about 1 or 2 teaspoons whole milk. If dough becomes too soft during use, refrigerate dough about 5 minutes or until firm enough to hold its shape (the dough will crumble if it is too cold, and it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick to the cookie sheet). Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: Spritz are traditional Christmas cookies in Scandinavian countries. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need a cookie press to make these cookies, which are formed into a variety of shapes.

Special to The Morning Star

Functional training is the huge buzz in the fitness industry. Sure, it’s important to train so it transfers outside of your gym/facility or to your sport or daily activities. But do not get carried away in the fancy exercises or gadgets because you may not get the results you want. Anyone who is serious about their strength and conditioning routine needs to take steps to learn about proper progression, assessing and movement. Here are some tips to think about when going alone in your workouts. Is there pain? Pain is a red flag or signal of an imbalance. It is not the time to “work through it.” As a conditioning coach or trainer it is important that we assess each client and know they are capable to move forward with programming. If not, refer out. This is important for individuals to know because looking at a conditioning coach or trainer to find the problem is not the answer. My previous Strong Points article talked about the importance of ankle mobility. It doesn’t stop there. Mobility through the ankle, hips and thoracic spine is of

The thoracic spine (upper back) loses mobility due to repetitive movement patterns throughout the years. The mobility lessens and in order to maintain freedom of movement our body will find the easiest path which is most often incorrect! Many suffer from low back pain, and increasing mobility through the hips and T-spine will do the job in helping to relieve some discomfort. Stretching the low back is NOT the

answer. Increase mobility above and below. Lack of shoulder mobility will also be an issue. Increase T-spine mobility and free up the shoulder, increase grip strength and you will increase stability through the shoulder. Think movement! We need to think about the ability of our body to react to outside forces. When we walk, lunge, jump, squat, push, reach, how do we react? Do we have appropriate “communication” between muscles and joints when we play sports or take a fitness class? What com-

He was only four and his mom said no, not this year, you need to be taller. So they went on the “baby hill” on his silver flying saucer, and on the big toboggan with his mom. He loved going down the hill, bumping along, his mom screaming in his ear. For someone who said she was brave she sure screamed like she was scared. They tobogganed at Silver Star school, some friends’ houses and their lane, and all of it was fun. Even on big sheets of cardboard they could lie down or sit up and spin around, it tickled his tummy, it was fast, it was fun. His brother loved the snow, too, and liked to make forts for them to play in as well. They could stay outside for hours and then come inside and warm up by the fire and drink hot chocolate with little marshmallows. It was the big hill he wanted to go on and he knew he would be safe.

The supper, held at the Goldpanner Campground and Cafe, was a fundraiser for the Cherryville Food Bank and raised $1,025 for Christmas hampers. “We would like to thank everyone who came out to support us and help out such a great cause.

He lay there feeling the cold on his back, staring up at the sky with the biggest smile on his face. “Are you all right?” his mom asked. “Fantastic — I’m going to go again and this time I am going to get big air. Race you!” And that was the beginning of years of big air and twists and turns, and crashes and always big smiles. There is nothing like a Canadian winter for bringing joy into a child, a teen or an adult’s life, whether that is a walk in the woods, snowshoeing, skating on a pond, cross country skiing, downhill, freestyle, boarding or a GT snow racer. Bundle up, put on your helmets and have fun. There is something special about the smell of a child’s cheeks after they have been playing outside in the cold and they come in to warm up and tell you about their exciting adventures in their winter wonderland. It’s a parent’s moment that fills your heart.

Rick and Marilyn Potter, cafe owners, came up with the idea and donated the ingredients for the more then 100 meals served. “The folks who came out for the meal were so impressed — the food was yummy, the service was fast and friendly and the spirit of giving was delightful. We were overwhelmed when we counted up all the money at the end of the day. We were literally in tears, we could not believe how much money we had raised. It was a real treat for us to be able to do this,” said Smiegielski. She and the other organizers are already planning another community supper for next year.

Delight in this 50-year-old peachy tale Armstrong theatre brings family-friendly fantasy James and the Giant Peach to the stage KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Like fellow British author Charles Dickens before him, Roald Dahl had a way of turning poor, young, misaligned youth into everyday heroes. Best known for his 1964 story, and subsequent film adaptations, about a boy named Charlie who wins a golden ticket to enter the wacky world of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, Dahl’s other children’s fantasy, James and the Giant Peach, was actually written three years earlier. Celebrating its 50th anniversary in print this year, the tale of James comes to life on the local stage when Asparagus Community Theatre presents it in Armstrong starting this week. Made into a musical film in 1996, which used both live and stop-motion animation, James and the Giant Peach has a deep message, said Paul Kirkwood-Hackett, who is directing the play for Asparagus. “It’s about a boy going through trauma who comes out well adjusted,” he said. “It speaks to the hero in young people and deals with prejudice. In the book, James doesn’t judge anybody, not his aunts or the insects he encounters.” For those who have not read the classic novel, the story follows an escaped rhinoceros from the London Zoo who has eaten James’ parents. Orphaned, James is packed off to live with his two really horrible aunts, Sponge and Spiker, until he finds himself inside a giant peach, where he encounters a group of insects. They soon become a family and set off on grand adventures together, overcoming obstacles along the way. “He has his comeuppance in that he suffers through mistreatment at the beginning, but comes out at the other end. It’s very Dickensian,” said Kirkwood-Hackett. “It also translates well today. Young people will enjoy the story as it is filled with fantasy and

adventure.” The Asparagus design team, led by Alf Bennett, have lots of special effects, costumes and lighting in store. The peach, made by head carpenter Mark Levey, is practically the same size as the stage and is shaped as a horseshoe with four different levels. “It’s quite an endeavour, but I’m pretty happy with where we’re at,” said Kirkwood-Hackett, adding George Young and George Bensmiller have designed the lighting and sound respectively. With narrator Sue Gairns guiding the audience through the story, the cast is made up of all ages, from young James (Len Wood Middle School student Tim Harder) to the Old Man (played by the not-so-elderly Doug Fairweather) who gives James the magic seeds that become the giant peach. Camping it up to play the two nasty aunts are longtime Asparagus volunteers/actors Susan Gagnon as Sponge and Joanne Feenstra as Spiker. And then there’s the insects. Donning the colourful costumes, and in some cases the many spindly legs, are Mandy Penner as Earthworm, Shaleen Toney as Centipede, Jacob Thiessen as Grasshopper, Sarah Holman as Silkworm, Michael Gairns as Spider, Lauren Brown as Ladybug and Clare Thiessen as Glowworm. Music director Rory White, and open mic host extraordinaire, is also playing his guitar throughout the show. Asparagus is dedicating its Saturday, Dec. 3 performance to the four young Armstrong residents who have died under tragic circumstances over the last few months. “We hope this play is uplifting. It’s been a sad couple of months with young people losing their lives. It has really affected us all, so we hope the community comes together for this family-oriented play,” said KirkwoodHackett. James and the Giant Peach runs Wednesday to Saturday, Nov. 30 to Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. with Saturday matinees at 2 p.m. at Centennial Auditorium, 3120 Pleasant Valley Rd., Armstrong. Tickets, $15/adult $12.50 senior/student, $8/child 12 and under, are available at The Guy Next Door, 3450a Okanagan St. Call 250-546-0950.

Get in the holiday spirit with a Christmas concert, featuring The Wiebes, at Vernon’s Emmanuel Fellowship Baptist Church Friday. The duo, actually a married couple, Shane and Angela Wiebe, will sing Christmas carols and music from their Christmas album Christmas with You. “The Wiebes have earned many accolades since starting their singing career, such as a Covenant Award and landing their Christmas album on the AC (adult contemporary) Top 50 list alongside other major artists such as Michael Bublé and Mariah Carey,” said Aaron Wilson, administrator at Emmanuel Baptist. Singing together since the day they met, The Wiebes’ first adventure began long before they started dating in year 2000 when both were members of The Columbia Singers and went on tour to

The big reason behind the first movie’s success was the winsome coming-of-age tale with

Mumble tap dancing out of the pack. This sequel takes a misstep or two in trying to re-capture that vibe, instead veering into an environmentally friendly message. The original did much the same, but it didn’t seem as preachy as this. That said, you could

Many people receive vitamin B-12 injections monthly. New evidence shows that taking enough of the vitamin orally can do the same thing. Orally, people absorb only about 1% of the dose but if 1000 mcg is given daily, this provides enough of the vitamin to do the job. Your doctor can tell you if this would be good for you. At this time of year, we are often asked if zinc lozenges are useful to treat the common cold. Evidently, the lozenges with the higher doses of zinc are the better choice and have been proven to slightly shorten the duration of a cold. A daily dose from the lozenges of at least 75 mg seems to give better results. Some people worry about using public washrooms, afraid that they might pick up a sexually-transmitted disease (STD). There is no worry. STD’s cannot be obtained from toilet seats. However, good hygiene after using the facilities is important. This include thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water, drying well and not touching your face until after hand washing. If a medication just passes its expiry date it still should contain at least 90% of active ingredient. However, using an out of date medication will not be supported by the manufacturer is anything goes wrong. For maximum benefit, use medications that are within their expiry date. If in doubt, ask our pharmacists. We value all your questions about medications. Use our pharmacists as your reliable resource for all the answers.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It’s usually not a great idea to let our emotions rule our logic, but today you won’t hesitate to make a decision with your heart when you see someone in dire need of help. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Keep a positive and hopeful attitude if you find yourself being confronted by some negative circumstances. When you think, “win,” you usually come out on top. ARIES (March 21-April 19) This is a good day to put a new plan into motion regarding how to use some new funds. Make sure you include putting some away for a rainy day, and everything should come out just fine. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your ability to organize and run matters involving several people is better than usual. If you’re not the one in command, offer suggestions to whoever is in charge.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If you move swiftly when you see the light at the end of the tunnel, you’ll be able to achieve what would otherwise be difficult. Try to act before others get involved; they would only muddy the waters. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Focusing your efforts and energies on helping loved ones who are unable to do for themselves will make for a very gratifying day. You won’t need anything else to be happy. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Don’t turn your back on someone with a good track record who brings you a new, outlandish idea. It’s worth taking a hard look at it, and could be an exceptional opportunity. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although you’re imaginative and creative, many times it requires some type of stimulus to get you thinking and involved. Give even the most hare-brained scheme due consideration.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes and weight gain. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment includes the use of bioidentical, plant based hormones that closely duplicate hormones your body produces. Natural hormones also slow the aging process.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) It won’t be just brains that make you such a strong leader, it will be Lady Luck herself who will be helping you. Be sure to give her a lot of credit, so that she’ll keep helping. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’ll be more successful dealing with important people when you can do so on an individual basis. The fewer people involved, the less confusing things will get.

RESORT RALLIES FOR COMMUNITY

Kyle Watters donates $20 to the Salvation Army food bank and in return, Nicole McGillivray, of Silver Star Mountain Resort, gives him a lift ticket to use during the resort’s opening weekend. Management and staff at Silver Star held the annual Operation Food Drive as a way of showing support for those residents in need in the Greater Vernon area.

B.C. growth forecast to moderate Morning Star Staff

Global economic uncertainty is being felt across B.C. The B.C. Economic Forecast Council has lowered its growth projections for the province this year and next in light of the worsening global economy. On average, the council expects B.C.’s GDP growth to be 2.2 per cent in 2011, down from its 2.7 per cent forecast in January of this year. The council also predicts that B.C.’s GDP will grow 2.2 per cent in 2012 and average 2.7 per cent in 2013-16. There is an increased risk of a worldwide double-dip recession, and both the province and the council agree we have to take a very cautious, prudent approach when putting together our next budget,” said Kevin Falcon, B.C.’s finance minister. The ministry forecast in the September quarterly report that the provincial economy would grow two per cent in 2011 and 2.3 per cent in 2012. The majority of council mem-

The B.C. Economic Forecast Council expects the province’s economy will grow at a slower pace than originally anticipated. bers predict B.C. will outperform the Canadian average in 2012 and encouraged the government to con-

tinue the pursuit to balance the budget in 2013/14. “British Columbia is still expect-

ed to continue to outperform most other North American economies,” said Falcon. “Our plan remains to balance the budget as committed. We will continue to monitor the global economic situation closely. The situation is fluid, and if it deteriorates further we will evaluate the global repercussions then.” Falcon added that the government will make decisions in the best interests of British Columbians, and that includes fiscal discipline and focusing on jobs and the economy. At a recent meeting, Economic Forecast Council members discussed their predictions for the B.C., Canadian and U.S. economies, including the risk of a double-dip recession, as well as the Euro-zone sovereign debt crisis and the potential slowdown in Asia. The 14-member Economic Forecast Council includes economic forecasters and its mandate is to provide economic advice to the minister of finance in developing each year’s budget and fiscal plan.

Having the talk with your parents

M

aybe you’ve already had the talk with

your kids. Well, now’s the time to have the talk with your parents. The anxious moments and uncomfortable feelings may be the same but the topic is decidedly different. You need to talk to your parents about

their health and financial issues now before a crisis occurs that can reduce their estate planning options and increase costs. While their health allows it, your parents should be involved in making decisions

Existing wills – have they designated personal representative (executor/liquidator) to wind up their affairs and distribute their assets according to their wills? Enduring powers of attorney for property – be sure they have appointed someone to make financial decisions on their behalf should they become incapacitated. Powers of attorney for personal care, living wills, health care directives – be sure they have appointed someone to make personal and health care decisions on their behalf should they become incapacitated Location – know where their wills and other legal papers are

kept; know the location and content of their bank accounts and safety deposit boxes. Having the talk with your parents can be difficult but the benefits of knowing their wishes can be extraordinary. There are many financial and estate planning strategies available to your parents. A professional advisor can provide a valuable outside perspective and help sort out the details and ease the awkwardness of the talk. Andy Erickson is with Investors Group in Vernon. This column presents general information only and is not a solicitation to buy or sell any investments.

TO AND FROM KELOWNA AIRPORT BRENT CASSIE PHOTO

The Canadian Museum of Civilization hugs up to the Ottawa River. The facility showcases the country’s rich and colourful history.

Our capital’s collectibles JANE CASSIE Special To The Morning Star

OTTAWA - History was never my thing in school, so when my husband, Brent, suggests that we scout out some museums during this trip to Ottawa, I scrunch up my nose. “It’s one cultured city,” he says, when scanning the 29 venues. “I’m sure you won’t be bored.” After just two, he’s absolutely right. I’m anything but! The Canadian War Museum The young boy runs after his father who is marching off to war. A soldier embraces his daughter — maybe for the last time. Troops tromp through war-torn trenches. These life-size images, at the museum’s entrance, portray Canada’s story — of fright and bravery, heartache and humanity, death and survival. Four separate galleries fill this ecofriendly space and retrace our military timeline. And while wandering through the maze of displays, we listen to familiar tunes — the Maple Leaf Forever, God Save the Queen. I hum along, constantly aware of the lump in my throat. Exhibit one encompasses everything from our earliest warriors to 1867 Confederation – from our First Peoples and primitive tools, to the evolution of spears, arrows and eventually muskets and wicked hand grenades. The second retraces the South African and First World Wars – and when men were eager to fight for their country. Little did they know how devastating it would be. Make-shift trenches and sounds of gunfire take us to the front line where hundreds of thousands perished. Artillery power was the cause of most fatalities; cannons, mine fields, killer machine guns. We get a glimpse of them all. In the end, our country made a huge sacrifice. More than half of the 420,000 soldiers were either wounded or killed, a tragedy that scarred many families. Although unprepared to battle again,

A visitor wanders through make-shift trenches at the Canadian War Museum. the Second World War broke two decades later. And on Sept. 10, 1939, Canada declared war on Germany. Exhibit three shares this Forge of Fire, a battle that took place on land, air and sea. Although at a great cost, victory was

achieved in 1945. From this second floor we have a panorama of LeBreton Gallery that showcases war tanks, jeeps and a fighter jet.

The final venue is titled, Violent Peace, a wrap-up from 1945 to present day that includes the Cold War, Korea, Persian Gulf and Afghanistan. We learn about NATO, the UN, listen to stories, read peace signs and play interactive games. Before heading out, there’s an opportunity to leave our own reflective thoughts. Although the old war songs are still ringing in my ears, another popular number comes to mind – All We Need Is Love. Canadian Museum of Civilization This contemporary museum hugs up to Ottawa River and within its chic interiors are displays that retrace Canadian history. “Check out these totems,” I say to Brent, from the mezzanine lookout. “It’s the world’s largest indoor collection.” A two-storey windowed wall borders the Grand Hall where the symbolic carvings are displayed. And beyond, are three large zones that share the history, arts, and cultural diversity of our aboriginal people. We listen to

past 20,000 years. Level two hosts a number of venues: an interactive display,

Postal Museum, 3D IMAX, and This Week at The Museum, a continually changing feature.

Today, it’s all about our relationship with horses – how they’ve helped shape our culture, till our soil and soothe our souls. On the fourth floor, portraits of famous people take over. Through audio recordings, artifacts, images and icons this Face To Face journey provides an overview of those who have made a difference. From founding fathers like Samuel de Champlain to Gabrielle Roy and other inspiring writers – each one has left their mark. And on the third floor in the Canada Hall while winding our way from the country’s east to west, we retrace the last thousand years. Life-size props and façades replicate each setting and costumed guides provide a human touch. And as we wander from the days when the first immigrants arrived, to the present land that we proudly call home, I take in more facts and data than I did in any history class.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder FROM TRAVELS AROUND THE GLOBE Traveling around the world, one sees and learns many interesting things. For example, in Norway, despite North Sea oil, gas for a car is about $12 per gallon -- except on Sundays, when it is “only” $10. This deal was played during last summer’s Norwegian Bridge Festival in Lillehammer. At both tables in a match, South was in four hearts, North having cue-bid two spades to show a good hand with heart support. The first West led the diamond seven, thirdhighest from an even number or lowest from an odd number. East won with his ace and returned a diamond. The declarer,

John Vegard Aa, ruffed and cashed his heart ace to get the bad news. Now he seemed to have one loser in each suit, but he spotted a possible way to win 10 tricks. South led a club to dummy’s queen. East won with his king and shifted to the spade queen, but declarer won in the dummy, ruffed a diamond, cashed his three black-suit winners ending in the dummy, and ruffed another diamond. That gave him two spades, three top hearts, three diamond ruffs and two clubs. East and West both had winners at trick 13: East’s spade jack and West’s heart jack. At the other table, Karl Martin Lunna, West, led his spade six. South won in the

Division of Greenwood Services

dummy, played a heart to his ace, and led a diamond to dummy’s nine. But East, Ove Andersbakken, won with his 10 and returned the spade queen. Declarer won on the board and ruffed a diamond, but when he next took the losing club finesse, East cashed a spade trick, and the contract had to go down one.
