Lifeguard puts training to great use RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

laine McKay is a typical toddler — quick as a bunny and curious about everything around him. But those traits could have got him into serious trouble if it hadn’t been for the quick actions of Laura Hitchen, a lifeguard at the Vernon Recreation Complex pool. “I thank God she was there and she was so calm,” said Melaney McKay, Blaine’s mom, of Hitchen. “It could have been tragic.” On Jan. 3 just before 10:30 a.m., McKay was in a change room with her mom and 13-month-old Blaine and getting ready to go for a swim. “I put him on the change table and he started gagging. My mom said, ‘Where’s my quarter?” (which had been pulled out for a locker),” said McKay. Concerned her son was choking, McKay ran out into the main pool area and approached Hitchen. “His cheeks were going red and he was totally obstructed,” said Hitchen, a lifeguard since 1996. She immediately dropped to one knee and initiated a backblow process in an attempt to dislodge the quarter.

LISA VANDER VELDE/MORNING STAR

Laura Hitchen (right), Vernon Recreation Complex lifeguard, is reunited with 13-month-old Blaine McKay, less than a month after saving the toddler from choking on a quarter in a change room at the pool. “On the fifth blow, I heard a grunt. I gave one more blow and he screamed. It was the

best sound in the world,” said Hitchen. However, the coin was still

stuck in Blaine’s throat so she continued with more backblows.

“Finally, he spat the quarter out and you could hear the tingting of it hitting the floor,” said Hitchen. Paramedics took Blaine to Vernon Jubilee Hospital but he was declared to be uninjured. This is the first time Hitchen has had to assist someone choking but all lifeguards at the swimming pool undergo regular life-saving training. “It always goes through your mind of what you’ll do,” she said. “I felt very comfortable and calm.” Hitchen is quick to give credit to colleagues Vanessa Robert, who kept an eye on swimmers, and Rae Kievit, who called 911. There is also considerable praise for Blaine’s mom. “Melaney was so quick. She realized something was wrong and brought him to us. The outcome was quicker because of that,” said Hitchen. The trio were reunited Thursday prior to Blaine heading out into the pool for some fun. “She was so awesome. She’s a hero to us,” said McKay of Hitchen. Hitchen plays down the accolades. “I just did my job. That’s what we train for,” she said.

O’Keefe a factor in resolving Kin track dispute Ending a legal fight between horse racing enthusiasts and taxpayers could involve O’Keefe Ranch. Regional District of North Okanagan directors were told Wednesday there will be a Feb. 9 meeting with the O’Keefe Ranch society and the topic is Kin Race Track. “Maybe the Okanagan Equestrian Society has something in common with O’Keefe Ranch from an agricultural perspective,” said Trafford Hall, RDNO administrator, who wouldn’t comment on whether the track

News Last call for veteran Landing chief RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Family is a priority for Ed Forslund. And that’s why the relationship he has with other Okanagan Landing firefighters was front and centre as he retired from the department Tuesday. “One of the guys said it’s like having 30 brothers,� said Forslund, who had been with the department for 37 years, 10 of them as chief. “In good times and bad times, you’re always doing something for each other. I’m thankful that I had an opportunity to be a member of this department.� Forslund is the last active charter member of the force from its founding in 1975. “I hit 60 and I felt it was time to let some young guys in. It’s a big commitment,� he said of retirement. Forslund has the respect of his peers. “Ed’s been a backbone to the department. His service is amazing,� said Dan Fuhr, the Landing’s new chief. “I’ve got to watch him and learn from him. He’s an amazing influence.� When asked about memorable fires, Forslund recounts a Lakeshore Road blaze in the early 1980s that claimed a resident’s life. “That one is always in the back of my mind,� he said. He also can’t forget responding to a 1999 fire at the original Paddlewheel Park Hall, which had

Ed Forslund is retiring after 37 years with the Okanagan Landing Fire Department, including a decade as chief of the volunteer organization. played host to community events, including those put on by the fire department. “That was a really emotional one,� said Forslund. Forslund says he couldn’t have dedicated himself to the volunteer fire department if he didn’t have the support of a number of

people. “I’d like to thank my family for being so understanding and for me missing dinners (to respond to fires) and going to practices,� he said. “I’d like to thank the community and the department for giving me the opportunity. It’s been a

good ride.� While Fuhr is new as chief, he has a long history with the hall. His father, Doug, was a charter member in 1975 and chief. “I grew up in the hall until I was 10 years old when Dad retired,� said Fuhr, an equipment operator for the City of Vernon.

Blaze forces hotel guests out in the cold RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Guests at a Silver Star Mountain hotel were forced out into minus 20 weather after fire alarm bells pierced the night. Members of the Silver Star Fire Department responded to reports of a fire at the Vance Creek Hotel at 12:40 a.m. Wednesday. “The first crews found heavy smoke in the saloon,� said Russ Mills, fire chief. Fifteen guests were forced out of their rooms and into the frigid weather. “We put them in the lobby of the Chilcoot

Conference Centre where it was warm,� said Russell Haubrich, Vance Creek Hotel general manager. Firefighters searched the building and they eventually discovered some greasy rags near the kitchen that had caught on fire but had been extinguished by overhead sprinklers. “We’re guessing it’s spontaneous combustion,� said Mills of the potential cause. “Sprinklers are a God send or we would be facing a massive structure fire.� Because the fire was reported to be in a hotel, the BX-Swan Lake Fire Department was

called in for assistance. “I’m really pleased with the actions of my department and those of the BX,� said Mills. Water from the sprinkler has created significant challenges. “It flooded that part of the restaurant and it did damage in the space below which is the saloon,� said Haubrich, adding that a restoration crew is on site and it could be a couple of days before the saloon is open. According to the Silver Star Fire Department, guests were allowed to return to their rooms at around 4:30 a.m.

He joined the department 10 years ago and has been deputy chief for the past year. He believes taking on the chief ’s duties is a natural progression. “I’ve been working my way up through the ranks and the opportunity opened up and I think I can do the job,� he said.

A Vernon Vipers alumnus will be returning to the Wesbild Centre. However, Aaron Volpatti won’t be playing. The former Vipers forward, now with the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks, will be on hand Jan. 27 to sign autographs and help with Vernon’s bid to host the 2014 Royal Bank Cup tournament. He will also be giving away his signed Canucks jersey between intermissions at the game. People who have signed up to support Vernon’s bid for the RBC Cup have had their name Aaron Volpatti entered into a draw to win the Volpatti jersey. People can still sign up (and be entered for the jersey draw) at the Wesbild Centre during the next Vipers’ home game, tonight, against the Trail Smoke Eaters. People who wish to help bring the RBC Cup to Vernon can also contribute at Chris Collard’s Sun Life office, at 209-2411 Highway 6, just behind the Tim Hortons location. Donors can also contribute (and be eligible to win Volpatti’s jersey, a Vipers signed jersey, or Viper season tickets) online at https://www.registrationlogic.com/secure/Register.aspx?ID=146 Volpatti, 26, from Revelstoke, had season-ending shoulder surgery in December. He scored his first goal in more than a year on Dec. 1 in a 6-5 loss to the Nashville Predators. Volpatti, who spent three seasons with the Vipers from 2003-06, signed with the Canucks as a free agent out of Brown University in March 2010. He secured full-time NHL employment this season after a strong prospects camp, training camp and pre-season.

Abbott said the BCTF contract that expired last spring contained about 16 per cent in wage increases over five years, and that was in prosperous times. The provincial government currently has a $3.1 billion operating deficit and has signed agreements with several other public service unions with no total increase in compensation for the past two years. The VTA wants the Vernon School District board to urge the government to revisit its bargaining mandate for teachers in order to reach a negotiated settlement. “It is time that the provincial government made bargaining with teachers a priority,” said Cummings.

Pressure is building to extend Greater Vernon’s trail network. The Ribbons of Green Trail Society wants the Regional District of North Okanagan to provide funds for design layout of a path to connect Lakeview Drive in Coldstream to the Kal Lake lookout. “There is a pathway that is 100 metres long but it’s very steep at this time of the year and you can’t walk it, and in the summer, you can’t bike it,” said Bryn Jones, with the society. The society would like to see a proper trail developed so people can access the area safely and bicycle or hike to Kekuli Bay. “It has one of the best views in the North

“The question is one of cost....” — Doug Dirk Okanagan,” said Jones. The District of Coldstream has considered the project before and it’s preliminary cost for construction of a trail ranged from $40,000 to $100,000. However, the society isn’t convinced that cost is necessary. “We aren’t asking for a fancy trail, just one that works,” said Jones. Besides pursuing funds for construction, one of the society’s other challenges has been determining who to deal with — Coldstream or the regional district. “We have had difficulty with jurisdictions as to who is responsible,” said Dave Smith, with the society. The request for design funds will be sent to RDNO’s Greater Vernon Advisory Committee for consideration. “It would be a plus to have that section connect to other trails but the question is one of cost and how to go about it,” said director Doug Dirk.

GRAND Film producers look to Enderby OPENING! News

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

It could be lights, camera, action again in the North Okanagan. Two production companies are currently considering shooting movies in the Enderby area. “If the one comes, it will begin shooting in three weeks,” said Jon Summerland, with the Okanagan Film Commission, who wasn’t able to provide further details. The second movie would have a budget of about $10 million. In 2011, a horror movie, No Tell Motel, shot in both Enderby and Falkland. The Regional District of North Okanagan provided $24,766 to the commission last year, and it is seeking $34,000 in 2012. “We need the money and

“If the one comes, it will begin shooting in three weeks.” — Jon Summerland mission chairperson, says he understands the financial pressures facing local communities. “Sewers and roads are important and they have to be done but this (movie industry) brings money back into the region,” said Trainor, who is also an Armstrong city councillor. “Every year we’re busier and we’re bringing productions in. But we operate on a budget that hasn’t increased in five years.” Part of the film/TV industry that is expanding in the

we hope the regional district is still film-commission friendly,” said Summerland. Much of the money from the Okanagan’s three regional districts goes towards encouraging film producers to bring their projects to the valley. That may include putting producers up in hotels and showing them potential locations around the region. If a movie is shot in the North Okanagan, the production company uses local restaurants, hotels and other services. John Trainor, film com-

The $34,000 request will be considered as part of the regional district’s 2012 budget process. “There will be a discussion,” said Patrick Nicol, RDNO chairperson. “Over the years, they have provided good value for money.” Director Shirley Fowler supports the film commission as an economic development strategy. “You hope there will be an impact for hotels, restaurants and culture,” she said. “They are also providing training for your young people and they can then get employment.”

Snowy motorcycle ride results in arrest ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

It just wasn’t a very good Monday for a Vernon man. An RCMP officer from the North Okanagan Traffic Services noticed a small motorcycle driving northbound on Pleasant Valley Road near Silver Star Road just after 1 p.m., thinking it odd to see such a vehicle out in –11 degree temperatures, snowing and on snow-covered roads. “The officer then noticed that there was no licence plate on the bike as it passed,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “Our officer turned around,

activated his lights and pulled the bike into a nearby parking lot.” Police report the bike’s operator, a 47-year-old Vernon man, produced a B.C. driver’s licence and told the officer he did not believe the bike had to be registered or insured because it has a 49cc engine. “Unfor tunately for him, the bike requires licensing,” said Molendyk. Upon further investigation, the officer discovered that the driver’s licence was found to have been cancelled in 2009. As he was in the process of issuing the

operator a ticket for no ple was insurance and no driver’s licence, the officer noticed a strong odour of liquor on the driver’s breath. “An ASD demand was Gord Molendyk read and a breath sam-

Activism is alive and well

E

nvironmental activism isn’t anything new, but like pop culture, the fight for our planet has seen its ups and downs –– it’s “hipper” moments, if you will, and its fight to stay relevant. All I know is the fight between resource-reliant corporations and the people some deem as “damn hippies” continues. As a former student of environmental science, it has taken a lot of living and learning, and a move from a big, far-removed city to a smaller community, where logging and mining are the main industries, to try to see both sides. I still tend to lean green, but I’ve seen when the two sides work together, or compromise, there can be Kristin Froneman progress. And now with at least two oil pipelines threatening to invade western Canadian soil, with First Nations and activists up in arms about the devastation that could arise, I look to a past environmental endeavour that many Canadians fought for, and won... well, eventually. Before Clayoquot Sound brought B.C.’s forestry practices into an international light, there was this small island in the southern part of the archipelago then known as the Queen Charlotte Islands (now Haida Gwaii), and it’s where my story as an activist began. In the height of the Mulroney years, I was an oblivious teenager living in Toronto, and to me, Lyell Island, located on south Moresby Island (now known as Gwaii Haanas) could have been Mars. It was my high school teacher, Janice Palmer, a mighty voiced activist herself, who made us aware of what was happening: old growth forest on precious, spiritual land, held sacred by the Haida Nation, was being wiped out. A caravan, consisting of Haida elders, wearing those pearl button blankets, known residents such as artist Bill Reid, and activists, (I believe Bruce Cockburn was on board, surprise, surprise) traversed the nation to bring attention to their anti clear-cut cause. And I was there with my “Save South

AT RANDOM

Moresby” T-shirt getting people to sign petitions when the caravan came to Toronto. We’ve seen this fight since: First Nations blocking logging roads against the establishment to save their land. But this was the first time, where a country was really moved into action. The situation came to a happier ending. Both the Canadian and the B.C. governments were moved to sign a memorandum to create what is now the 1,495-square kilometre Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. And although logging hasn’t stopped on Haida Gwaii altogether, it is being done more selectively, using sustainable practises. And the country has changed. Both sustainable logging practises and aboriginal rights have made more of an impact since, as have those “damn hippies.” Since those days, I have travelled up to Mica Creek, north of Revelstoke, on a hauler to see how logging is practised today. I’ve been to sawmills where beehive burners have been replaced by co-generation plants to create steam used to turn hog fuel into energy. I’ve seen the amount of work silviculture, tree planters hired by logging companies, have done to replenish the earth. I’ve also seen the logging industry, and towns reliant on wood, suffer to unfair tariffs placed upon softwood lumber. Like I said, there are two sides to every story. So as we enter what will be another environmental crisis with the proposals of both the Enbridge Northern Gateway and Keystone XL pipeline projects (the latter was temporarily halted by U.S. President Barack Obama just the other day), it will be interesting to see which side of the fight will win. As the Gitxsan First Nation sets up their blockades and public hearings begin on Enbridge’s proposal to pipe crude oil and natural gas to and from the oil sands at Bruderheim, Alta. to Kitimat, we could have another south Moresby on our hands. Oil is the new lumber, after all. And people are willing to get their hands dirty over this cause with jobs and more precious land on the line. And now that I have a better understanding and a closer stake to the land in question, it may be time to get a new T-shirt made: “Save us all.”

Enbridge Inc. reported a leak from one of its pipelines the same day public hearings began into the company’s proposed $5.5 billion Northern Gateway project. A helicopter inspection found a three-foot patch of bubbles near the Calgary company’s Stingray natural gas pipeline, 100 kilometres from the Louisiana coast. Enbridge has experienced a series of spills in the past two years, which have undermined its arguments on safety. Chiefs and elders from the Haisla first nations community, warned the three-member federal review panel that an oil spill would devastate their way of life. They have lived in the area for up to 2,000 years and rely on the ocean for food – salmon, halibut, cod, clams, crabs and shrimp. Enbridge contends that a 1,172-kilometre twin pipeline, between the Alberta oil sands and Kitimat, can be built and operated safely – with tugboat support, navigational aids and a mountain tunnel. But the channel has a history of violent winds, earthquakes and avalanches, heavy rain causing mudslides. Part of the pipeline would pass through an area with clay soil known for landslides. Furthermore, tankers would navigate Hecate Strait, ranked by Environment Canada as the fourth most dangerous body of water in the world. Sounds challenging. And how would Enbridge get to a pipeline leak buried under five feet of snow? It seems like a recipe for disaster, a matter of when, not if. Why not find another route? Some have suggested reversing the flow east, or to Prince Rupert, which already has a large port, and a natural gas line. But the latter would be longer, more costly, and not without its own environmental concerns. – Maple Ridge News

Political will is necessary

I

think our community knows its boundaries, we just don't respect them. That puts us in the same boat as many other communities, and I believe we'll find eventually that it's not a good place to be. Boundaries for communities are our limitations, the lines that are drawn that we must not step over or we pay the consequences. The nations of the world are just now recognizing that there are boundaries for the entire planet that we are in danger of crossing, concerning the atmosphere, global warming, the acidification of the oceans, the pollution and misuse of fresh water, the corruption of lands and forests, and extreme losses in biodiversity. There is a scrambling now to come up with solutions and a crazy opposition to the science that says there are problems, and a frightening denial that any danger exists at all. I don't know if the world's industrial nations and rising nations can ever get together to work it out. They don't seem to be doing so well, so far. On the smaller community level, the Vernon level, our boundaries involve land use and encroachment, water availability, waste disposal, and air quality, and probably a few more. Our municipal government shows some effort toward controlling these areas, but mostly control seems to be not much more than keeping the

headlong rush to boundary trespass in some kind of order, taking each challenge as it comes. I don't mean to belittle city government effort; the city does quite well considering the pressures from business and industry, and various groups and individuals with their own agendas, mainly making money, growing, and getting and providing jobs for happy families. Because councils are elected they are careful about stepping on toes with too many controls, especially controls that call for changes that mean people have to adjust to different ways. We have had a few examples locally of how difficult it is for some people to accept change. Growth, as I see it, is the major problem. The more people come here, the more houses have to be built, the more business and industry have to grow to accommodate them, and the chain of necessary expansion continues and becomes problematical.

PREDICTED IT Well, I'd be the last one to say, "I told you so." Around the world, people young and older are picking up their placards to vent the very things I've been writing about in this paper for years. I can't help but suppose that if all off these protesting would have voted social democrat in Canada or Democrat giving Obama more power through the various houses we would be free of the need to protest. I'd like to cite a few examples. Harper has been pandering with the corporations by lowering tax rates for them. He has relaxed environmental standards with the promise this would create jobs. Well, the jobless rate is up, one of our problems is the income received from selling off our pre-

R

Our hospital is feeling the pressure as we are all aware. Schools are pressured. Housing creeps up the hillsides and snakes into the districts requiring umbilical provision of water and sewage. We have a marvellous land disposal spray irrigation system here to take care of sewage effluent, but it is not limitless: there will come a time when sewage effluent goes into a lake. Landfill has worked for us in disposing of solids, but it isn't infinite. What then? As the population grows, residents have to have water and our sources, while excellent and monitored, are limited. Face it, some time in the future we are just not going to have water for everybody without severe rationing even in wet years. Think of what might happen here with three years of severe drought, which could occur given climate change and the fact that we are already technically a semi-arid

cious natural resources. How many Canadians would agree that we only own 20 per cent of these resources is a good thing? Me thinks not. Provincially, Clark has sold our souls to the devil by allowing bureaucracy to take over the asylum, i.e. putting the most disenfranchised of our people at risk. This includes the mentally challenged by closing homes and leaving families to make their own arrangements to find places for their loved ones. And, adding insult to injury, the very people hired to attend to their needs are rewarded financially for closing said homes. It's obscene and criminal. No two ways about it. Good old Christy, who has promised open and transparent government, has developed a severe case of laryngitis. Maybe she should have her

region. Our demands on water are big, and the monster houses we seem to favor now demand even more. I am not recommending we shut the doors to newcomers and tell our kids they will have to go elsewhere, but I am saying that we have to start paying more attention to our boundaries and somehow start setting standards that consider our limitations. If we don't, the downgrading, perhaps even ruining, of our environment, our personal living spaces, will be inevitable to some degree. We may not go thirsty or see raw sewage anywhere, but what will happen will influence the lives of residents in ways they are not influenced now. And they won't like it. Official plans exist, and watchdog committees. I am aware of that. To them, however, I believe we must add putting severe stops on those population demands that are taking us beyond reasonable boundaries. I don't have the answers, but I believe the base of solutions will be economic. In future those who want to come here to live, and those who want to stay here should expect to pay well for the privilege, and Vernon should be strong enough to figure out how, and do more than just accommodate. Political will is something that will have to be there. Is there a chance of that? John J. Clarke

muteness checked by a doctor. Oh, well, collectively we'll look after her next election. Some of you may remember my warning when she became premier — that she was just another Gordon Campbell in a skirt. Now, I would never be as uncouth as to say, "You heard it here first." Oh, and Christy, if money is so plentiful as per severance payouts we've seen, can I expect a cheque? I'm a little short this month.

This Spallumcheen heritage barn on Powerhouse Road could face deconstruction unless some funds are found to bring it up to building code standards. Kohnert said a local barn builder, in 2010, estimated the repair of the barn’s third floor to be $3,000 but that did not include building code compliance upgrades that would be necessary for public occupation of the barn. But after meeting with barn builder Bryan Schulz and RDNO building inspector Dave Garnder at the barn site in December of 2011, Kohnert discovered substan-

tial upgrades to meet building code requirements would be needed. “These upgrades would include a new foundation which would cost more than $50,000,” wrote Kohnert, who said RDNO would not be deconstructing the barn until the spring. That does allow time to come up with potential lowcost options that will not increase RDNO’s liabilty and

Three more Spallumcheen residents have voiced opposition to a would-be plan to allow a road network out of McLeod Subdivision and its desire to provide a safe and viable alternative route to Highway 97A. Letters were received by council from residents expressing extreme dissatisfaction to a plan by three township property owners who have submitted an application to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) for approval to subdivide their

three bordering properties on Whitaker Road which are in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) into a 14-lot subdivision. The owners say the application is to allow a road network out of the subdivision that provides a viable alternative route to Highway 97A, and includes a proposed public road through the subdivision that would link Lockhart Crescent to Reservoir Road. That road would enable another alternate route in and out of the subdivision to the highway via Powerhouse Road. Spallumcheen council unanimously

could save the barn. “I guess if somebody comes up with something,” we have until the spring,” said Spallumcheen Mayor Janice Brown. The township has expressed an interest in keeping the barn because of its symbolism to the area’s rich agricultural history. Spallumcheen council voted unanimously to receive Kohnert’s letter.

A heritage barn in Spallumcheen is in danger of being razed unless a lot of cash is harvested. The Regional District of North Okanagan, owners of the barn located at 3691 Powerhouse Road, have expressed an interest in deconstructing the barn, selling recoverable material of any value and disposing of the remainder. “Fencing the structure substantially enough to protect the public and renters will not be possible given the height of the barn,” wrote Nicole Kohnert, RDNO’s manager of regional engineering services. The barn sits on RDNO property which also includes a residence. The current tenants are storing equipment in the barn, which has issues with its structural integrity. A third floor of the barn, which was formerly used as a pottery studio, was removed which helped lead to the structural uncertainty. Council originally encouraged the regional district in 2010 to refurbish the barn, which is believed to have been constructed in the 1940s. The regional district responded with three options: do nothing, demolish or deconstruct the barn, or refurbish it to make it more useful.

supported the application to the ALC, but state no official application for such a plan from the property owners has come before council. “An actual application for the subdivision has not come to council,” said Coun. Christine Fraser. “We can refer the letters and make sure they get heard at a public hearing when an application comes to council, if it ever comes to council.” Four people have now voiced their opposition to the proposal, which was not supported by the township’s planning department.

Justin Trudeau, a Montreal MP, says the party can increase its profile in the riding despite it placing fourth in 2008 and 2011. “We have to reconnect with people,” said Trudeau, who will be in Vernon Saturday. “People are looking for an alternative. We need to provide a sense of hope of what Canada will be.” Trudeau is upbeat about the state of the party, which lost official opposition status in the 2011 election. “After the worst defeat in history, the phone is

“We have to reconnect with people.” — Justin Trudeau ringing off the hook from people wanting to get involved in the party,” he said. “We had 3,000 people come out (to last week’s convention in Ottawa). That’s more than the NDP and Conservative conventions combined.” Among the motions approved by convention delegates is to open up the party to supporters even if they don’t take out Liberal membership cards. “We want to tap into people likely to support the Liberals but they don’t necessarily want to be classified as a Liberal member,” said Trudeau. Trudeau says the Conservative government is creating divisions across the country, and as an example, he points to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s health care funding formula, which is opposed by many premiers. “Canadians want the different levels of government to work together and innovate,” he said. “Mr. Harper doesn’t work well with others.” While in Vernon Saturday, Trudeau will attend a public luncheon at Okanagan College and speak about what the future holds for youth in Canada. “We have a generation of young people who are more informed and interested in the world than ever before,” he said. “My message is one of empowerment to get involved in the community and politics, and not necessarily Liberal politics. We don’t want them to be leaders of the future but leaders today.” The public is welcome to arrive at 11:30 a.m., with the event running from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. To attend, RSVP in advance to osfla@shaw. ca.

Show of respect applauded Morning Star Staff

Residents of Enderby are garnering praise for their commitment to the community. During the recent funeral for firefighter Dan Botkin, many residents volunteered behind the scenes while others have rallied behind Botkin’s family and colleagues. “We can all reflect on our response with pride, knowing we did our very best, in a very trying time,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. “To our friends and neighbours, our heartfelt thanks for your incredible kindness Dan Botkin and generosity.” Cyr says the funeral was an important step in dealing with the tragedy and paying tribute to all those who serve. “The response by our community as we worked to create and host a service worthy of Dan, while at the same time trying to come to grips with the enormous grief we all felt, is testament to the human spirit,” he said. Botkin died Dec. 29 in an explosion while fighting a fire at a log-home construction yard in Enderby

The Eagles are watching over the valley with their new project. Members of the Fraternal Order of Eagles are proud to announce that their disaster relief trailer is now ready to serve the Interior. The service club has a reputation for supporting community charities and now with the trailer it will be able to work with the Provincial Emergency Program to provide preliminary response for any disaster within a 1,000-kilometre radius. The trailer is stocked with supplies like water, blankets, hygiene kits, diapers and toys for children and emergency rations for up to 500 people to help people who are evacuated until other disaster services can take over. The trailer also has generators and field tents. The club members will show the trailer at its open house and charity gala Sunday.. “We had the trailer donated in 2008 and had it renovated and certified with help from other Eagles’ clubs in the area,� said Tom Balfour, chairman of the disaster relief trailer committee. The Provincial Emergency Program will call the committee when the trailer is needed. A local truck is then hired to pull the trailer and it can be on the road within a few hours. There are two other trailers in the province, one on Vancouver Island and another in North Vancouver as a backup for both. Eagles president John Mayrhofer invites the community to see the trailer and the hall and its facilities and meet the members at the open house. “The club does a variety of things besides our fundraising,� he said. “Our members take part in curling, pool, camp outs, dancing and an RV club but the main thing for us is community service. We hope people will want to join us as members.� The Eagles Club will be presenting donations to a

Okanagan communities eagerly await prison decision JOHN ARENDT Black Press

Members of Summerland’s municipal council want to know when the province will make its decision about a prison to be built in the Okanagan Valley. Early in 2011, the province announced its plans to construct a 360-cell prison in the region. Summerland and several other communities submitted potential sites for the facility, but since that time, no announcement has been made. At present, Lumby, Summerland, the Osoyoos Indian Band and the Penticton Indian Band have made submis-

sions. Mayor Janice Perrino said council will make a request to the province for an update. Solicitor General Shirley Bond has stated an announcement is expected in the near future. “Government has been carefully reviewing all the capital demands and projects — and there are always competing interests for taxpayer dollars. It’s important to recognize that this is an historic, long-term investment for both the province and the final chosen community,” she said. “We need to give all of our options careful consideration to ensure we get it right.”

Visit our website at

WillowbrookTerrace.ca

The sites are being evaluated based on environmental conditions, available utilities, zoning, size and proximity to services. B.C. Corrections staff has already met with community representatives to discuss operations and offer tours of existing facilities. Summerland’s proposed site is at the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s gravel pit on Highway 97 near the northern edge of the community. If the site is selected, Perrino has said the municipality would consult the public to determine whether to proceed with the facility.

Gerow ices Longworth Morning Star Staff

Jenn Gerow’s CanHealth/A&G Supply cracked a deuce in eight to upend Mark Longworth’s Sladen Moore 7-5 in Baron Insurance Super League action Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club. Longworth, who dipped to 7-6, opened with singles in one and two, only to have

Gerow (6-7) reply with a double in three. Tied at the break, Longworth counted one in five, but Gerow pulled ahead with a triple in six. The Sladen Moore crew equalized with a double in seven. Enjoying an early lead for the first time in ages, Jim Cotter’s Woodland Equipment cruised to a 9-3 win over TJ Perepolkin’s

Canaccord Wealth Management. Cotter (6-7) collected two in one, gave up a triple in two, and then salted the game with a five-ender in three after some nice setups by Marc Fillion and Aron Herrick. Aided by great shot making and weight calling from super spare Sherry Heath, the Cotter rink burgled

two more points in four. Perepolkin fell to 5-9. Dave Merklinger’s Canwest Propane rink maintained its onegame lead atop the Super League with a 6-3 doubling of Alyssa Kyllo’s Armstrong Optometry. Undefeated since picking up lead John Slattery in Week 4, the 11-2 propane crew fired clutch deuces in three and five to build a 5-2 lead. Kyllo (3-10) posted singles in two, four and seven.

When children are exposed to inspiring stories of athletes, they begin to imagine what they can do and how they too can make a difference.

Another weekend. Another tournament title. So it goes for the Lumby Atom Stars, sponsored by Kineshanko Logging and Armstrong Co-op. The Stars rallied to shade the Winfield Bruins 8-7 Sunday in the thrilling A final of the Penticton Atomic Meltdown Tournament. It was the Stars’ third tournament win of the season. The Stars, who are right behind the undefeated Bruins in the North Okanagan Super League, fell behind 4-0 after one period. Determined not to give up, the Stars outscored the Bruins 3-1 in the second to make things interesting for the third, where the Stars’ gritty play and hard work shone though as they produced five goals. Conner Seehaver and Drew Mackenzie each scored twice, while Quin Williamson and Nic Teale added singles to round out the offence on assists by Noah Clarke, Tage Kineshanko, Ryan Desilets and Teale. Wyatt Whitcomb, Emily Romailler, Ethan Beliveau and Liam McLeod all played great defence. Matthew Yaremcio made numerous amazing saves. The Stars opened the tourney by battling the Kelowna Spitfires to a 5-5 draw. Teale, Desilets, Mackenzie, Williamson and Jordan Romailler scored for Lumby. The Stars then skated to an 8-6 win over host Penticton #2 with Seehaver pulling the hat trick and Williamson adding two goals. Singles went to Teale, Drew Mackenzie and Jordan Romailler. In their last round-robin game, Lumby rode the star goaltending of Michael Preston to an 8-3 win over the Chilliwack Bombers. Kineshanko, Clarke and Desilets each contributed two goals apiece with Williamson collecting 1+2. The Stars went into the Sunday playoffs in second place and bounced the Kelowna Bulls 6-3 in an early morning game. Desilets provided 2+1, while Williamson, Seehaver, Preston and Mackenzie added singles. Kineshanko was in net and made several key saves. In Atom Super League action, the K2 Stone Crushers erased a 3-1 deficit and recorded a 6-6 tie Saturday with North Okanagan #1. Caleb James put the Crushers on the board with his first goal of the season on a stellar coastto-coast rush, burying a shot to the corner with a d-man draped all over him. James’ goal sparked the Crushers as they stormed back to take a 4-3 lead after two periods on goals by Lucas Wood, Cole Johnson and Zack Laranjo. The Stone squad relinquished the lead in the third and had to rely on a couple of back-to-back

rushes for goals from d-man Nicholas Maglio. Jaden Stone had a solid game on defence and Chayse Turnbull stood tall in net. The Crushers then played early Sunday morning at the Shaw Centre and registered a gutsy 4-1 win over host Salmon Arm #1. Vernon opened the scoring on a nifty pass from Laranjo to Johnson for his first of two on the day. They took a 2-0 lead into the third with Maglio banging one from in front of the net. In the third, the K2 Stone crew opened up their lead with Johnson’s second of the game on another feed from Laranjo, who in turn completed the scoring on the powerplay following a hard shot off the post from the point by Wood. Elyse Dyck almost potted her first of the year with a strong effort in front of the net. The everimproving Dawson Martian was solid all weekend and Benjamin Reinhardt proved his abilities once again alternating between forward and defence. The Crushers showed consistent team play with Alyssa Reilly, Shaelyn Cecchinni and Brandon Dyck having strong games at both ends of the ice. The defensive tandem of Trevor Moore and Will HigginsWilson stymied several Salmon Arm rushes. Chayse Turnbull came within 7:24 of earning his first shutout of the season. “We’ve learned what it takes to compete and have stepped up our team game,” said Crushers’ coach Eli Johnson. “The coaching staff – Jerry Reinhardt, Darren Cecchini and myself – are very proud of the progress the team has made this year. We are looking forward to a strong finish to the season with the return of Jackson Sampert from injury, and continued improvement in our passing and team play.” The Vernon M&K Ready Mix Red Lazers went 2-2 in the Osoyoos Atom Tournament. The Lazers opened by doubling the Westside Killer Bees 10-5 with Liam Reid recording 3+1 for game MVP. Jacob Sherriff-Brewer and Aiden Trottier each counted 2+1, Jadon Foster also scored twice and Sapien Joe fired one goal. The Red Lazers then slammed the Summerland Jets 7-3, led by MVP Brayden Szeman’s hat trick. Isaac White, on a great rush, Brayden McManaman, Foster, Trottier and Reid supplied singles. In Game 3, the Lazers fell 3-1 to the Langley Vipers with Trottier scoring and Foster getting MVP for incredible goaltending. Samuel White, Erik Urquhart, Zachary Manthorne and Jacob Wettlaufer enjoyed their best games of the season. In crossover action, the Lazers fell 5-1 to Salmon Arm with Szeman scoring from Trottier. Foster earned the game MVP with Brady Lawrence skating his best game of the year.

Freestylers storm Apex podium Morning Star Staff

Members of the Silver Star Freestyle Ski Club and the B.C. freestyle team spent plenty of time on the podium last weekend at the opening B.C. freestyle series at Apex.

Elena Gaskell led the charge in the Super Youth (8-9 years) category, bringing home gold in both the mogul and slopestyle events, and adding silver in big air. Samuel Rampado,

also in the 8-9 class, medalled in all three of his events with two silver and a bronze. In the 10-11 division, Declan Stevenson and Stirling Peters put on a spin clinic in the slopestyle, with both

Jamie Rykuiter (1011 girls) completed a fully stretched spread eagle to earn bronze in big air, and had clean jumps and turns to get the same result in moguls. In the 12-13 youth category, competition team rookie Patrick (Mountain) Dew fought through a stacked field to take bronze. Coach Connor

Reeves came out of retirement to compete in moguls, and was rewarded with gold in the men’s 16-18 category. Former Silver Star athlete Thomas Rutkowski, now with the Team B.C., struck gold in big air in the M2 category with a rodeo 1080, and followed that with silver in slopestyle and bronze in moguls. Teammate and fellow SSFC grad Tyson Oland claimed gold in slopestyle. The second B.C. freestyle series event goes Feb. 3-5 at Silver Star.

Stewart secures free ski bronze Morning Star Staff

First time was a charm for Vernon’s Mallory Stewart at the Canadian Open Free Ski Championships last weekend at Red Mountain in Rossland. Competing in the 7-11-year-old category, Stewart collected bronze in Saturday’s final after placing third in qualifying. Her brother, Jackson Stewart, racing in the 12-14 boys division, put in a clean run and just missed qualifying for the finals. Teammates Connor Glennon and Chris Loland, both newcomers to this level of competition, also turned in solid performances, but missed the finals. Free skiing requires competitors to choose a steep, challenging slope, picking the toughest line which will earn the skier the highest points. Skiers are also judged on energy, technique, flow and control.

Knights stumble Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Michael Roberts turned in a threepoint, first-star performance as the host Revelstoke Grizzlies thrashed the North Okanagan Knights 9-3 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League play Wednesday night at the Forum. The Grizz, now second in the Doug Birks Division, raced out to a 4-1 first-period lead on a pair of goals by Kyle Schwartz, and singles from Vernon’s Tye Sanford and Roberts, who added two helpers. Ben Greenaway, assisted by third star Tanner Burns of Vernon, answered for the Knights, who are a point back of Revelstoke at 27-12-0-1. “It was a repeat of last year – there was nobody there to compete and they got off to a strong start,” said Knights’ head coach Kris Mallette. “They had their way with us last night. Mallette replaced starter Dustin Nikkel with Aaron Brandoli, a Vernon product acquired from the Sicamous Eagles at the trade deadline, late in the first period. The duo combined for 35 saves. Grizzlies’ netminder Ethan Wood recorded 39 stops. The Grizzlies kept rolling in the second period on goals by Vernon’s Cole Sanford, Reid Blinkhorn and Tyler Reay. Burns, scoring on a powerplay late in the frame, responded for the Knights. Austin Donaldson and Marc Letourneau tallied for Revelstoke in the third period. Bryce Koch bagged a single for North Okanagan. The Knights visit the Penticton Lakers Saturday at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

Caution urged among mobile home owners Morning Star Staff

The BC Coroners Service and Office of the Fire Commissioner are urging owners of mobile (manufactured) homes and operators of mobile home parks to take special care to prevent fires in the wake of recent

fire deaths in British Columbia. From Dec. 29, 2011 to Jan. 2, 2012, seven British Columbians lost their lives in five separate fires. Three of those fires and five of the deaths occurred in mobile

homes or travel trailers being used as living accommodation. The BC Coroners Service and the Office of the Fire Commissioner are continuing to investigate these fires; specific causes of the fires are not yet available. One such blaze took place in Sicamous Jan. 1 when a mobile home fire claimed the life of a father and this two sons. Daniel Vollans, 28, and his two sons, Devlin, 4, and Lealan, 3, perished in the fire. While mobile homes provide a source of housing for many British Columbians, studies show that fires in such housing, especially older units, tend to be more devastating than those in other forms of residence. A U.S. study found that the death rate in mobile home fires is substantially higher than in other housing: www. usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/fswy7.pdf Escape from mobile

BLACK PRESS FILE PHOTO

Safety urged for mobile home owners in light of a number of fatal fires. home fires is more difficult for a number of reasons: ■ The space is smaller, which puts the occupant closer to the products of combustion. ■ They do not ventilate as readily as other homes, and chances of survival decrease. ■ A second exit is not always accessible. ■ They are sometimes made of more flammable material. Specific steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of all home fires include: ■ Have furnaces inspected at least once

a year, and clean the blower and filters often to prevent overheating. Keep the furnace area clear of clutter. ■ Ensure electrical wiring and appliances are in good working order. Watch out for any signs of wiring trouble, including flickering lights for no apparent reason; warm, inoperable, strange-smelling or discoloured switch plates or outlets; sparking or electrical arcing; or a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Never run extension cords under rugs. ■ Avoid the use of

space heaters if at all possible. If it is essential to use one, use a CSAapproved model and ensure it is well away from drapes, bedding, clothing or other flammable materials. ■ It is the law for all homes to be equipped with smoke detectors and highly recommended homes have a fire extinguisher. ■ If a natural gas or liquid propane (LP) line runs into the mobile home, know where the shutoff valve is and how to operate it. Never keep LP tanks inside the home or in confined spaces

under the home, and never use a gas stove to heat or dry the home. ■ Take special precautions with smoking materials. Ensure that all cigarettes and matches are fully extinguished and discarded well away from any flammable materials. Never smoke in bed. ■ Consideration should be given to replacing wood-based combustible wall coverings with gypsum board products, which slow down the progression of fire. ■ Recognize that impairment by alcohol or drugs can reduce one’s ability to respond quickly to a fire and get out in time. Developing and practicing home evacuation plans can help people prepare for an emergency. Most home fires occur at night, when people are the least prepared. A home fire can become a disaster if you and your family are not familiar with how to escape.

Lost languages regain voice

Morning Star Staff

Their goal is to preserve disappearing languages and they are using modern communication methods to do it. A group of students at the University of B.C.’s Okanagan campus is delving into almost-lost languages and blogging about them in an effort to keep them alive for future generations. Among the courses assistant professor of anthropology Christine Schreyer teaches is endangered languages, and several of her students have taken to the Internet to talk about and raise awareness of tongues that are disappearing. Schreyer says there are approximately 80 indigenous languages in Canada, of which only three are expected to survive: Cree, Inuit (Inuktitut) and Ojibwa. That is mainly due to these three each having more than 20,000 speakers and many children in their respective communities continue learning these as their first languages. But even these could be silenced as English or French take over in the communities where they are spoken. “It’s very much tied to identity. So when people lose their language, they lose piece of identity, a piece of their culture,” she says, adding these endangered languages are a significant part of Canada’s history and heritage. “There are 6,000 to 7,000 languages in the world and 90 per cent of them are endangered,” says Schreyer. “Languages of colonizers have taken over. It is usually the indigenous and minority languages that are being lost.” French and Spanish major Jace Ma studied the language of Guernesiais, spoken on a small island off the coast of Great Britain, finding only two per cent of the population speaks their native language. At the turn of the 20th century, it was the only language spoken on the isle which now is dominated by English. However, during her work Ma found a shift by the island inhabitants to reclaim the unique aspect of their culture. “There is a really strong cultural identity between people and language,” says Ma. “Over the past 10 years or so, more people have been interested in learning the language. They want to get back to their roots. They want their own culture.” Such movement to reclaim their linguistic heritage is not uncommon as people, including those in many Canadian First Nations, try to keep their ancestral language alive in some capacity. “If people lose their language, they lose their culture,” says Ma. Ma continues to blog about the island people and has gone from being an outsider – when she started the project – to bonding with the community through their almost-lost language. “I have a strong connection with them. I can’t stop blogging about them,” she says. Other students have studied languages of Cornish, Kwak’wala, Nootka, Michif, Manx, Catalan, Tagish, Ainu, Hawaiian and Endangered Landscapes.

As an actor and theatre director, Matt Brown has not only recited a few proverbs in his day, he has lived them. So the one that comes to mind when describing his latest venture, The Hub Arts Collective, has a deep, personal meaning: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.� Originally a concept to bring the arts into a more open venue, Brown made The Hub a reality almost a decade ago. However, due to circumstances beyond his control, the original Hub closed down. And now with the same mandate to open doors to all manner of the arts, and to all ages, The Hub has been revived. And Brown says he has learned from past mistakes. “My thought was that if it was revived, it would not be under a new name. I wanted to hold true to the original vision. The problem is the original vision didn’t get executed properly,� said Brown. With the grand opening of The Hub’s new location taking place Jan. 28, Brown has spent the past two years thinking of ways to make the arts venture a reality. He wanted to stick to his original vision: to have a place where the arts are inclusive, where artists can work together, where the doors are open to all members of the community. With the help of Ryan Robson, one of three studio artists working out of the new Hub, and other like-minded individuals, Brown has been able to re-open the doors. And he has a lot of support through his connections with other arts and culture organizations such as the Vernon Community Arts Centre, the Okanagan Science Centre as well as Powerhouse Theatre. “What I hear from those places is that there are not enough volunteers. People may be afraid of sharing or even duplicating their knowledge. But this will be a place where people can pool from various resources,� he said. “We’re called The Hub; not the box, not the Vernon arts collective. The Hub is somewhere that radiates and gravitates. It’s circular in that it never ends, and it’s inclusive. There are lots of pockets of the arts out there that need to be linked.� The Hub has so far hosted a number of exhibitions by its studio artists, including the inaugural one held by Robson, which was well attended. And there is one studio space currently open for an artist. Robson, a Cape Breton-born and raised artist, came to Vernon, where her father lives, after graduating from NSCAD (Nova Scotia University of Art and Design) over a

KRISTIN FRONEMAN /MORNING STAR

The Hub Arts Collective’s Ryan Robson, left, and Matt Brown relax on the main-floor space of the new arts venue, where the work of the local portrait artist Emily Rice is currently showing. The Hub officially opens Jan. 28 and the public is welcome to drop by and see what it’s all about. year ago, and says she has been amazed with the amount of creativity here. “I was surprised at how much there was here, and we’re hoping to open that up with The Hub,� said Robson, who also works at Teen Junction and has been trying to pull the two organizations together by donating proceeds from admission to art shows to the local organization. “We want to start challenging the community by asking them to show us something they haven’t done before.� Now with The Hub reopening in a bolder, bigger location with street-front visibility on 30th Avenue (in the former pawn shop beside the Towne Theatre), Brown says he wants youth to be a big part of the venture. “Merging the arts is one of The Hub’s core fundamentals and it is all about youth and all ages. I would love to see a nine-year-old working with a 90-year-old; getting unlikely people to work together on the same task and seeing how much they can work together.� And Brown doesn’t plan to repeat old mistakes. He now has the business acumen to be able to run things in a more organized fashion and has so far overcome one chal-

lenge: the installation of a workable toilet. “We had $3,100 in plumbing installed. The toilet alone was $1,500. People donated their manpower and expertise to help,� said Brown. “It has blown me away the amount of people that are showing up to help. I’m anxious to find a way for this place to give back.� Using his new business knowledge from courses he has taken, Brown says he has broken The Hub into various components to make it accessible to people. “That first try was cheaper than my university education. It was a great learning curve. With so many fails, you eventually have to see success, and with people saying ‘you can’t do this,� it’s made me charge ahead with determination. I have to prove that this can be a success.� Besides the artist studios, located upstairs, The Hub now has a yoga studio operated by Lisa Dumas, and will also offer dance classes by the Inner World School, run by Andrea Clarke. Plans are also in the works for a future recording studio, and drop-in classes, from acting to photography to life drawing. They will be ongoing as will monthly exhibi-

tions in The Hub’s street-level space. There will also be a performance of The Vagina Monologues to be held in February. “We want to create conversation in the community and bring attention to causes. We would like to do a display in the lobby that speaks to social issues. For example, in December we could do something on hunger, and for Valentine’s Day, it could be something on Heart and Stroke,� said Robson. Visitors will be able to get a better perspective of The Hub Arts Collective, and its fancy commode, at the grand opening Jan. 28 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Everyone is welcome and there will music, comedy, art, children’s performances, live drawing and a participatory activity. Local actress Christine Pilgrim will host the entire evening, which also includes a performance by Theatre Loud and musical headliner Peter McKillop. Suggested donation is $5 at the door, with proceeds to Teen Junction. The Hub will be open thereafter, Tuesday to Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The public is welcome to drop by or visit The Hub Arts Collective on Facebook for more information.

Aschenmeier, who will lead a discussion on scientific principles and to help focus the artistic energy into scientific imagery, and answer any burning science queries. Gallery Vertigo’s studio artists will be on hand to facilitate the workshop and provide creative inspiration on how they connect with science, while Anne Mihalcheon, an active studio artist and Smarties instructor at Vertigo, will also provide an introduction to materials. Both workshops are open to all members of the community –– children and adults, artists and non-artists, as well as science enthusiasts and newcomers. All artwork will be featured on the Science.gc.ca website, and submission locations will be marked on an online map of Canada. The workshops take place Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. simultaneously at Gallery Vertigo (3001-31st St. upstairs, downtown Vernon) and the Okanagan Science Centre (located at the east entrance to Polson Park.) Suggested donation at each location is $2 per person. To avoid disappointment, participants should arrive at either location prior to 2 p.m. so they will have time to complete the featured projects.

Participants will be able to select a piece of art they create at either Vertigo or the science centre to submit to the exhibition and the OSC will take care of the shipping. “This is our chance to show the rest of B.C., Canada and North America how the North Okanagan community embraces and celebrates science and art,” said Dixon. Distinguished community artists Christine Kashuba and James Postill will be holding respective workshops at the OSC during Saturday’s art-making events. Kashuba’s workshop will demonstrate how to use light sensitive paper to create solar artwork, while Caetani Cultural Centre artist-in-residence Postill will use a mixture of lime and sand to create a plaster called intonaco. The participants will spread the intonaco onto a tile and, after minimal drying time, will paint a miniature fresco. “Both of these artistic processes rely heavily on scientific principles, thereby magnifying the science as art message of each participant,” said Dixon, adding there will also be paper, paint and drawing materials on hand for those who prefer a simpler approach.

Two local organizations are proving how art and science can work together. The Okanagan Science Centre (OSC) and Gallery Vertigo have teamed up for a unique art exhibition that will be part of an international science conference being held next month. And the public is being asked to participate by sharing their view on science through art. On Saturday, both the OSC and Vertigo will open their doors and supply materials and inspiration for people to create their own works of art in the Science as Art initiative. “Artists and scientists will be on hand at each location to help participants create scientific works of art that express individual interpretation of the question ‘what does science mean to you,’” said Sandi Dixon, Okanagan Science Centre executive director. The locally created pieces will then be submitted to a special exhibition being held during the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference in Vancouver next month. For the first time in decades, the AAAS is hosting its annual meeting in Canada, and one of the event’s outreach projects is the art exhibition being organized by the NRC-Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics, in partnership with Science.gc.ca, and the Canadian Association of Science Centres, which counts the OSC as a member. The event will draw thousands of leading scientists, engineers, educators and policy makers, as well as hundreds of sci-

“‘HAYWIRE’ KICKS OFF THE YEAR ON A SEXY ACTION HIGH.”

“‘HAYWIRE’ IS A J ULTRA-COOL, ENATEZZY, BREATHLESS ADRENRTAINING, ALINE RUSH.” -Stephen Rebello ,

I

could have seen The Iron Lady. Instead, last weekend, I opted to see A Dangerous Method, directed by Canadian David Cronenberg, who gave us The Fly and Dead Ringers. I’m not a fan of Cronenberg’s work, and I knew this was not going to be a lighthearted look at the beginnings of modern psychiatry, or in fact, a lighthearted look at anything. That is just not the Cronenberg way—I’m still afraid of flies! Cronenberg gives us a look at the ever evolving and devolving relationship between Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortgensen) and Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender). Their friendship blossomed with Jung seeing Freud as a father figure. However, life choices and a difference in methodologies take them in vastly different directions and we watch the relationship decline. Freud and Jung could not have been more different, Freud lived modestly with this wife and six children, while Jung had a wealthy wife who spared no expense to ensure he was not going to leave her. To prepare for the role of Freud, Mortgensen visited Vienna, studied Freud’s habits, and even smoked the same cigars; the art department went so far as to obtain period pens for the actors—much of the communication between the two men was by letter. The movie opens in Zurich in 1909, where Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightly)

Let me warn you, this show is all about sex (what a surprise, considering the subjects) and there are explicit scenes throughout. What is absolutely clear is that Keira Knightly is brilliant and Oscarworthy as the damaged Sabina. Spielrein’s evoSusan Streen lution from insane to a talented psychologist in her own right is so incredible that it is mesmerizing. Without giving the whole film away, let me say that Jung fell in love with Sabina

with all her sexual proclivities while, of course, married to his ever-pregnant wife. But the show is deeper than just the lust of Jung and the unbending of Freud, it is about two leaders in a field not understood at the time, and often ridiculed, but without whom the great strides in the field of the mind would never have been made. Jung outlived Freud, his mistresses (yes, more than one) and died in 1961 at the age of 86. Jung was psychic himself and suffered depression and it is hoped that we come away with a look at the whole person with all the angst, faults and genius that he was.

Freud and Jung took their work farther than anyone had ever done and as Jung says “gave a glimpse into the future of what the patient could become.” There are many great lines in this show, but I liked this one: “Once they find out what we mean, they’ll be just as appalled.” Still quoted, still questioned, often criticized even today, we have to ask ourselves: where would we be if they had never lived? I give A Dangerous Method four reels out of five. –– Susan Steen is a local nonprofit executive and a movie buff. Her column appears weekly in the Kelowna Capital News.

Horoscope

Welcome to our new

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL Numerous opportunities to further your education and gain new knowledge will be available to you in the year ahead. Make sure you take advantage of each and every one of them, because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find all kinds of ways to utilize what you learn.

PUZZLE NO. 203

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be as much of a pragmatist as a visionary, your hopes and aspirations will be easily realized. This combination always brings gangbusters results.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 110314

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Dealings you have with a large organization, such as a company or the government, will work out better than you think. Be patient and let the big dogs set the pace. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) This is an unusual day, when even a bum deal can be renegotiated and work out quite well for you. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to ask for the terms you want, but then be patient and let events establish how things play out. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You enjoy being your own person and doing your own thing, but you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind being a team player either, which is fortunate because at this point youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fare better as part of a group. CANCER (June 21-July 22) It looks like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be given a second chance to capitalize on an opportunity that you previously turned down. Armed with new knowledge, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to be on board. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Treat whatever transpires like a game. This doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imply that you should not be serious when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called for. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merely a means for not letting anything overwhelm you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Conditions in general look pretty good for you. However, your best opportunities are likely to

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow people challenging your ideas or opinions to irritate you. Use any dispute as a means to better explain your position and to showcase your points more effectively. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Financial currents are running in your favor, making you luckier than usual with all money matters. Use this to further feather your nest instead of depending on what the wind brings in. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You can substantially enhance your probabilities for success by dealing solely with the person who calls the shots. Jump over subordinates and drive right to the hoop. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Initially, you might feel imposed upon when asked to do something for another, but once the dust settles youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll discover that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the one who ends up benefiting the most.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot ďŹ&#x201A;ashes 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.

STORK REPORT

Morning Star Staff

Max Russmann and his wife, Kate, have read to their children since they were born. “The best part of it is spending time with your kids, especially if they’re as interested in reading as our kids are,” said Max. “Getting kids into reading early draws them away from television and helps language development and their curiosity about the world.” Some of the books they read again and again to their children, Alex, three, and Owen, seven-months, came through the Books for Babies program, funded by Nixon Wenger Lawyers, where Max is a lawyer. “It’s a routine that everyone in our family looks forward to. Watching the children grow and change in their reading interests is really interesting for us, too,” said Kate. The Books for Babies program provides books to every family that has a new baby within two weeks of the baby’s birth. The books are delivered by a public health nurse during a home visit for a first baby and mailed to families if this is not their first child. Each book includes a key message (also provided on a fridge magnet) which reads: “Share books with your baby EVERY DAY because Your baby loves your voice, and needs your cuddles! Your baby will focus on: colourful pictures shapes and faces Your baby will want to hear and see this book over and over and over again!” Six hundred books were purchased for 2012 with three new titles — Moo,Baa, La La La! by Sandra Boynton; Kisses, Kisses, Baby-O! by Sheree Fitch; and What’s on my Head? by Margaret Miller. “The Canadian Pediatric Association

Renovations cause family rift

D

ear Annie: We have five grown children. One of our sons, “Mark,” obtained a contractor’s license and asked to remodel our kitchen and bathroom so he could show his work to potential customers. He said the only cost to us would be for materials, which he estimated to be about $300. Mark has always been a troubled kid and stubborn to a fault. He especially doesn’t like taking advice or suggestions from others. My husband and I decided to limit his first attempt to the bathroom. We figured the risk would be worth it, because Kathy Mitchell & Marcy Sugar he had asked so little of us in the past. Also, he is a good carpenter and has made some lovely furniture. You probably already guessed what happened. Mark did a terrible job. He ignored our requests and didn’t do what he said he would, and we were left with some major problems. When we asked for an itemized bill, we got one line: “Total amount due, $400.” After we explained our feelings to him, he walked out and hasn’t spoken to us since. That was two years ago. After months of having our cards and gifts returned, my husband and I finally decided to leave him alone and hope he will come around. We didn’t invite him for Thanksgiving, as he ruins the holiday for us. Now our daughter is upset, saying she wants him at all the family gatherings. But it’s uncomfortable to be around Mark, because he won’t speak to us. I feel we are being punished for his immaturity. How do we mend this terrible rift? — Sad Mom Dear Sad: You already know that Mark

Thank you for being the Voice of Experience.

Citizens for Safe Technology sponsors an information session on BC Hydro Smart Meters on Monday. Thirty community councils in B.C. have put a moratorium on the installation of Smart Meters, which are said to pose a serious health risk through the radiation they emit. On May 31, 2011, the World Health Organization classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields, such as emitted by Smart Meters, as a Class 2B, a possible human carcinogen, and called for further investigation. The Smart Grid will enable timeof-use billing to make more money on what is being used during the day so it can divert daytime power to the U.S. Eighty per cent of homeowners with Smart Meters report electricity costs have risen significantly, 50 per cent, 60

per cent, 200 per cent and even 300 per cent with no increased use. With smart appliances, BC Hydro (or whoever owns it, if privatized), will be able to control when and which ones to turn off, or remotely turn off your power if bills are not paid on time. In California alone, more than 800 Smart Meters have caught fire from power surges, with the damage usually not covered by insurance. Smart Meters also pose a privacy and security risk since any wireless device is very easy to hack into. Hackers could access private information and even shut down the whole grid. The BC Hydro Smart Meters presentation takes place Monday at 7 p.m. at 2913-29th Ave., (behind the Towne Theatre).

Errors and omissions excepted.

fter following the opening phase of the National Energy Board’s hearings on the Northern Gateway oil pipeline proposal, I have a prediction. B.C. will never see this pipeline. And that’s probably the best outcome. The first reason is the nearly unanimous opposition of informed Kitimat-area residents, led by Haisla Nation Chief Councillor Ellis Ross and skilled

local volunteers who described the marine environment of the Kitimat estuary. There was speculation that Ross, who was just appointed to chair Premier Christy Clark’s new Aboriginal Business and Investment Council, might bend on the oil proposal. His testimony put that notion to rest. The Haisla, Haida, Gitga’at and other members of the Coastal First Nations group put their marker down on managed logging

and eco-tourism years before this pipeline debate heated up. California do-gooders may have coined the term “Great Bear Rainforest,” but make no mistake, these tribes run the place. Moving inland, the Northern Gateway pipeline route is a tangle of dozens of asserted traditional

territories, some in the century-old Treaty 8 zone and others with no legal settlement. Our courts will require at least another generation of millionaire lawyers to untangle the territorial claims involved, Tom Fletcher no matter what the B.C., Canadian or Chinese governments may wish to do with this oil. The Haisla have embraced liquefied

B.C. VIEWS

natural gas ships, plants and pipelines, which may be all the industrial development the region can handle. Condensate can continue to be shipped into Kitimat by tankers and sent by railcar to Alberta to dilute bitumen. Which brings me to the alternatives to Northern Gateway. CP Rail just announced a major investment in its U.S. main line south of Saskatchewan, to transport crude oil from the Bakken Formation,

an emerging source of shale oil and gas under Saskatchewan, Alberta and North Dakota. CP shipments out of North Dakota went from 500 carloads in 2009 to more than 13,000 carloads in 2011. The new target is 70,000. B.C.’s likeliest alternative for oilsands crude is the existing Trans Mountain pipeline, which has been pumping Alberta oil and refined products to the West Coast at Burrard Inlet for nearly 60 years. Port Moody’s Ioco refinery is gone, but Chevron’s Burnaby plant remains, and some crude goes out by tanker or pipeline to refineries south of B.C. The current owner of Trans Mountain, Kinder Morgan Canada, is naturally watching the Enbridge battle closely. A Kinder Morgan representative provided the following information about tanker traffic from their Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. In 2011 there were 32 tankers loaded at Westridge, down from 69 in 2010. Demand varies widely (there were no tankers in 2000) and current traffic is similar to what

went out of Burrard Inlet in the 1970s. Contrary to popular belief, there is not yet a major surge to Asia. For every 10 ships that load at Westridge, on average eight sail to California, one to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries, and only one to Asia. Current Port Metro Vancouver rules allow Aframax-class tankers (80,000 to 119,000 dead weight tons) to pass under the Lions Gate and Second Narrows bridges, but they can’t take on a full load. That would require dredging in Second Narrows, which would increase general shipping safety as well as capacity. Kinder Morgan has not yet formally applied to twin the Trans Mountain line. If it does expand its priceless right of way, the capacity would be greater than the Enbridge proposal. One way or another, that oil will move. The professional environmentalist gong show over Enbridge is still to come. More on that next week.

Asked about the precarious position the new council now finds itself in without Harris and Geall, Mayor Darrell Trouton says there will be challenges ahead, but assures he is up to the task. “I’ve dealt with large projects, this is kind of what I do for a living,” said Trouton. “Not at the municipal level, but in the public sector. This is not unusual for me to take on something like this. You challenge and you test yourself, that’s part of growing and so, for me, personally, it’s not as challenging.”

And then, at that point in time, what type of person do we need? “It gives the council and the community an understanding that everybody should be held accountable.” Coun. Fred Busch, who has served with administrator Harris longer than anyone else on the current council, is not happy with the termination. “It was not my choice to do it and I found that Alan was a very bright person who had a lot of new ideas and I think would certainly have served this council well if he had remained as the CAO,” says Busch.

Sicamous CAO Alan Harris looks on as Mayor Darrell Trouton signs his oath of office. Harris has been let go from his position.

Administration at the District of Sicamous is undergoing significant change, starting with the termination of chief administrative officer Alan Harris and the retirement of deputy manager Mary Geall. A news release Monday from the district states that after careful consideration, council decided to terminate the district’s contract with Harris, and wishes him “every success in future endeavours.” Harris has served as district CAO since July 2008 and is a former finance general manager at the Regional District of North

Trouton couldn’t comment on council’s reasons for terminating the district’s contract with Harris, but said he is not concerned about legal repercussions, noting there are clauses in the contract that allow the action. Trouton says the district is already advertising the position of an interim administrator, and that council has agreed to undertake an assessment of district operations. “What we want to do is have an outside assessment/evaluation done, and there are professionals within the industry that do that,” said Trouton. “They come in and they assess what

Bridge by Phillip Alder M E TA P H O R I C A L SCISSORS CAN CUT THEIR LINES Truman Capote said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe more in the scissors than I do in the pencil.â&#x20AC;? We have a scissors play in bridge. It is not common, but it is fun to execute. See if you can spot it in this deal. South is in four spades. West leads the club six. How should declarer plan the play? Southâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-spade response was businesslike. The contract rated to have play; if six spades was makable, partner might have moved; and it provided maximum inconvenience to the opponents. A declarer who plays on autopilot will win with

dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s club ace, cash the spade ace, ruff a diamond in his hand, and lead a sneaky spade seven. However, if West is awake, he will win with his king and shift to the heart nine. East will take that trick, cash the club king, and give his partner a club ruff for down one. Yes, it is slightly unlucky to ďŹ nd West with king-third of spades. However, since Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening lead is surely a singleton, given that his partner opened one heart, this club ruff is the one risk to the contract. But how can it be avoided? South must stop East from gaining the lead in hearts. At trick two, declarer should lead the diamond queen from the dummy and, if East plays

low, discard his heart king. This scissors coup cuts the communication between the defenders. Alternatively, if East covers with his diamond ace, South ruffs, plays a spade to dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ace, and leads the diamond jack, pitching his heart when East does not produce the king.

MOORE, Eileen “Collette”

on January 16, 2012.

Eileen “Collette” Moore, was born October 3, 1925 in Waterford Ireland, beloved youngest daughter to John and Eileen Murray. She passed gently into the Lord’s waiting arms at VJH

“Collette” or “Coo”, as she was affectionately known by those who loved her, came to Toronto at her mother’s suggestion as a Red Cross nurse in 1954 and met her future husband, William, in Burk’s Falls, Ontario. Married in 1955 at the cathedral in North Bay, they settled in to raising a family of four: John (1958), Rosemary (1959) (husband Ron Harris), Timothy (1961) (wife Carmen nee: Merkosky), and Benjamin (1963) (wife Lisa nee: Mauriks). All were born in the tiny Red Cross hospital at Burk’s Falls. Dissatis¿ed with rural Ontario, the family moved out west to Chilliwack, eventually settling in Maple Ridge, BC. Eileen “Collette” was a diminutive, raven-haired beauty who loved Irish folklore and tales of her relatives and ancestors. She was a loving mother to her four children and a devoted wife to her towering husband, Bill. Colette was pre-deceased by her husband, Bill, whom she had missed dearly for ten long years. She is survived by her four children along with eight grandchildren: Claire, Charlotte, Kelsey, Nicholas, Jordan, Caitlin, Natalie, and Christopher. She was recently blessed to be a great grandmother with the arrival, before Christmas, of the precious Olivia Rose with doting parents Claire Harris and Mathew Dureau of Maple Ridge. A Catholic Prayer Service will be held Friday evening, January 20th, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at Our Lady of the Valley parish in Coldstream. Funeral Mass will be at OLOV, 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2012. Everyone is welcome to attend. The family would like to thank the staff at Heron Grove, and at VJH for her care. We have been met with more kindness than we would have thought possible. Arrangements have been entrusted to: PLEASANT VALLEY FUNERAL HOME (250) 542-4333 Condolences may be offered at www.pleasantvalleyfh.com

We do not need a special day to bring you to our minds. The days we do not think of you are very hard to ďŹ nd. Each morning when we wake we know that you are gone. And no one knows the heartache as we try to carry on. Our hearts still ache with sadness, and secret tears still ďŹ&#x201A;ow. What it meant to lose you no one will ever know. Our thoughts are always with you, your place no one can ďŹ ll. In life we loved you dearly; in death we love you still. There will always be heartache and often a silent tear, but always, precious memories of the days when you were here. If tears would make a staircase and heartaches make a lane, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d walk to heaven and bring you home again. We hold you close within our hearts; and there you will remain, to walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again. Author unknown.

In Loving Memory of

SAMI Born May 2, 2000 My dear friend and companion passed away on Sunday, January 8th, 2012. My unconditional and boundless love puppy. Sami loved coming to work everyday with me in Armstrong at The Price is Right Bulk and Health Foods. Sami passed away with sunbeams coming down on her head and with so much love, Sami chose her spot in the sunbeams. Thank you Dr. Laura White and Malory who were there for us and also thanks to Dr. Trinity Smith and the girls at the Central Animal Hospital. We couldn’t have made it without your love.

Minor Hockey Week January 13-22 2012

Volunteers keep kids in the game Retired NHL power forward Sandy Moger is Director of Hockey Operations, while former AHL Manitoba Moose staffer Michelle McCrea is the administrator/registrar. Greater Vernon Minor Hockey Association also pays a part-time accountant. Everybody else is a volunteer, helping 610 players and 115 coaches and 38 teams enjoy the game. Robert Kehler is president and leads a hard-working executive. Parents serve as managers while also helping as timekeeper, scorekeeper, 50-50 sales rep, jersey keeper, dressing room attendant and more. And while hockey is getting more expensive due to high equipment costs and ice time fees, no youngster should be kept out of the game due to his or her economic status. “KidSport has donated $7,600 to GVMHA, helping over 35 kids play hockey this season,” said McCrea, who mans the association office. “They have also donated $2,500 to other recreation hockey programs in the area. We really appreciate all they do for our families.” Each Rep team and House Division hosts a tournament which brings approximately 85 teams and their families to Vernon, representing a decent financial boost to hotels and restaurants. The Sun Valley Source For Sports Renegades open their Bantam Tier 1 tournament today at 6:15 p.m. (Civic) against Hollyburn of West Vancouver. The Renegades meet the Ridge Meadows Flames at 10:15 a.m. (Wesbild Centre) and play the Trail Smoke Eaters at 6:15 p.m. (Civic) on Saturday. The 41st annual Vernon Coca-Cola Pee Wee Classic goes Feb. 9-12 at Civic Arena with the Watkin Motors Mustangs being joined in the Coke Division with the Spokane Jr. Chiefs, Vancouver Thunderbirds and Edmonton NWZ Raiders. The Bow Valley Flames of Calgary, Juan de Fuca Grizzlies, Seattle Sno Kings and South Delta Storm are in the Sun Valley Sports Division. Close to 100 Coca-Classic alumni have gone on to play in the NHL and Europe. Q Amy Myles helped start the Mothers Auxiliary for Vernon minor hockey. She spend 15 tireless years of volunteer service, and in 1965, Myles was honoured with a Lifetime Membership into the association. In 1968, the CAHA gave her a Scroll of Merit to say thanks.
