Quick response saves woman’s life RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A Manitoba woman owes her life to the team at the Vernon Recreation Complex. Complex staff came to the rescue after a 36-year-old woman from Killarney, Man. fell off the treadmill Jan. 24 and experienced sudden death syndrome. “I’m very proud of them,” said Doug Ross, recreation services manager. Sudden death syndrome is a sudden cardiac death, but not a heart attack. The survival rate is less than one per cent of the less than one per cent of the population who suffer from it. The woman — who is married and has three children — is in Victoria having a pacemaker installed and reported to be doing well. The emergency began when the woman fell off a treadmill and appeared to be hav-
ing a seizure. Another person in the fitness room alerted the front desk and Norlene Keller, aquatics programmer, and Gary Lefebvre, aquatic leader, were alerted. The woman was unresponsive and not breathing, so Lefebvre immediately started compressions (CPR) while Keller got the automated external defribulator (AED) ready. They were joined by lifeguard Laura Hitchen, who took care of the breathing. Within seconds of the AED being connected to the patient, it indicated that a shock was necessary. That was provided and then CPR continued. Eventually, the woman began breathing and she was taken to hospital by paramedics. A cardiac specialist says the efforts of Keller, Lefebvre and Hitchen, particularly providing shock, saved the woman’s life. “They’re all certified lifeguards,” said
Ross of recreation complex staff. “They annually have to keep their certifications up but they also do training four times a year. They’re considered first responders.” This is the second time in a month that a lifeguard saved someone visiting the complex. On Jan. 3, Hitchen kept a 13-monthold boy from choking to death on a quarter. Ross says the public should have complete confidence in the staff ’s abilities to handle any medical emergency. “People see the guards on the pool deck and they may not consider the other things the guards have to be prepared for,” he said. Lefebvre, Keller and Hitchen asked not to be interviewed about the Jan. 24 incident.
Greater Vernon’s aquatic centre is undergoing repairs but there is a call for another pool in town. The Vernon Kokanee Swim Club is floating the concept of a 53-metre pool with eight to 10 lanes that could be used by both its members and the public. “The City of Vernon, District of Coldstream and Areas B and C are seeing some conflict in pool time between public use and the VKSC and a larger pool would alleviate this concern,” said Nives Sullivan, VKSC president, in a letter to the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee, which oversees recreation issues. The current lap pool is 25 Catherine Lord metres with eight lanes. GVAC recently decided to spend $1.7 million on repairs to the Vernon Recreation Complex, with most of the work at the pool, which was renovated and expanded in 1993. Besides alleviating demands between the club and the public, Sullivan says a new facility would help attract swim meets, which can bring up to 600 athletes per event. “This provides direct economic impact to the local community,” said Sullivan, who doesn’t establish a timeline for possibly having a second pool in place. In promoting a second pool, the club points to GVAC’s 2004 recreation master plan, which indicated the need for a new pool within 10 years. “The VKSC is ready and willing to be part of the solution to the North Okanagan’s pool and recreation complex decisions and would welcome the opportunity to be directly involved in issues related to this now and in the future,” said Sullivan. A recent GVAC study states Greater Vernon’s population may not require a second aquatic centre until 2026 or 2030. “You can’t fund it if you don’t have a big enough tax base,” said director Rob Sawatzky. “It’s not just building them but operating them.” Director Catherine Lord doesn’t believe a new pool can proceed now. “Given these economic times, it wouldn’t be feasible,” she said, adding that there are also calls for a new sports complex, museum and art gallery. “There is so much pressure. It makes it difficult for the board to pull things together.” GVAC will pursue a needs assessment and feasibility study for a new aquatics/recreation complex by 2015.

News Proclamation starts 52nd Winter Carnival Sporting with Carnival, the 52nd annual Vernon Winter Carnival, comes out to play for 10 days starting Friday. â€œWeâ€™re getting ready for proclamation Thursday which really kicks things off. With 14 candidates this year, itâ€™s going to be really exciting,â€? said Carnival executive director Brittany Sjoblom. Proclamation takes place at the Performing Arts Centre at 7 p.m. with tickets available at Ticket Seller. The top three candidates in the talent portion of the Queen Silver Star Excellence Program will do their presentations and more than $6,500 in scholarships will be awarded to candidates and retiring royalty. â€œWe will get to meet the visiting royalty and then there is the proclamation of Queen Silver Star and her Princess, which is always so exciting for everyone,â€? said Sjoblom. The coronation of the new royalty will take place Friday at 5 p.m. at Polson Park with the Balloon Glow, a chance to see the hot air balloons up close, to follow at the park. Everyone is looking forward to the parade Saturday at noon. â€œWe have 110 entries and weâ€™re looking forward to seeing what people have done with the theme, Sporting with Carnival, and some great entries as always. Itâ€™s sounding pretty cool from what I am hearing. The mothers of the Little Miss Winter Carnival participants are putting a lot of work into their float which is very creative,â€? said Sjoblom. â€œWeâ€™re also looking forward to seeing some of the B.C. Winer Games athletes in the parade. I think people are really getting into the theme for the parade and for decorations.â€? Sjoblom, a former Queen Silver Star, has
fond memories of the parade. â€œWhen I was little, all our family would pack blankets and hot chocolate and weâ€™d sit on the court house steps. I donâ€™t like to miss a parade. Then when I was in it as Queen Silver Star it was exhilarating. The queen is near the front of the parade and there was so much clapping and congratulations, it gets everything going. For the people who are in the parade, itâ€™s pure excitement.â€? Ticket sales for Carnival events are going well, with some events sold out and others near selling out. Sjoblom reminds everyone that there are many free and low cost events for families and adults so that everyone can do something for Carnival. â€œCelebrate Carnival every day until the last day when there is the Toonie and a Tin Skate with our community stars, sponsored by Tim Hortons,â€? she said. â€œThis is a great chance to skate with the Vernon Vipers, Queen and Princess Silver Star and enjoy treats from Tim Hortons.â€? Toonie and a Tin takes place Feb. 12 from 10:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at Wesbild Centre. This event includes the Vernon Shrine Club Masquerade Skating Party. Admission is $2 per person, $5 per family and a tin of food for the food bank. Look for other great activities, including dinner dances, dinner theatre, music, food festivals, sports, a cookie and cake bake off, dance lessons and the snow sculpture competition at Silver Star Mountain Mountain Resort. The Appetizers and Art event scheduled for Monday has been cancelled. â€œAnyone who has purchased tickets can come into our office to get a refund,â€? said Sjoblom.

City to institute pay parking on 29th Street RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Downtown Vernon parking is being preserved, but it comes with a price. After years of parking along the railway tracks on 29th Street for free, residents require a monthly pass of $35 as of today. â€œWe wonâ€™t start ticketing people right away,â€? said Brett Bandy, the cityâ€™s real estate manager. The 125 parking spaces impacted are next to Bertelsen Plumbing and west of the rail tracks and north of Little Texâ€™s parking.
The land is owned by the railway company and other private interests, but the city decided to get involved because there was a concern parking would disappear. â€œItâ€™s an important issue for downtown,â€? said Bandy. â€œThe railway approached us and said if we donâ€™t lease it or a businesses doesnâ€™t lease it, theyâ€™ll shut it down.â€? The city has an agreement with one property owner to oversee parking and it is negotiating with the rail company. Brett Bandy Revenue from parking fees will go towards the lease for the property as well

as site maintenance. That area is extremely popular among people looking to park for the day, including staff at city hall, the fire department and the RCMP. Bandy admits charging for parking there may force some motorists into other neighbourhoods. But he says there are still options for residents not wanting to pay for parking. â€œThere are spots available for free like Civic Arena.â€? Bandy says the Downtown Vernon Association and nearby businesses, including Powerhouse Theatre, have been notified of the parking fees.

More than 140 people came out for the Investors Group Walk for Memories at the Wesbild Centre Sunday. “Our goal was $25,000 and we raised more than $27,000,” said Stella Brassard, volunteer event co-chairperson along with Jan Mori. “We’ve noticed that many people are loyal supporters of the walk and keep coming back year after year. And we have so many great volunteers to put it all together.” “Our honouree, Ron Houston, and his wife, Beth, were there and they got a wonderful surprise. Their son, Robert, flew in to be there to support them.” Participants ended the event with the “Alzheimer hug,” a short exercise that is good for everyone. Instructions: Get a partner. Put hands on your own shoulders so that elbows are sticking out in front of you. Touch one of your partner’s opposite elbows to yours, then the other elbows touch. Partners high-five both hands above heads. Have a big hug. The Investors Group Walk for Memories was held in 24 communities around the province. Recent findings from a national survey indicate low awareness of the early signs of Alzheimer disease and other dementias is causing a delay in diagnosis

Two Kamloops men are in custody facing a number of charges following an early morning police chase Saturday in the North Okanagan. Vernon RCMP report that their officers attempted to stop a green 1993 Mazda pickup at 30th Avenue and 27th Street at around 2:30 a.m. “The officer activated his emergency light and siren. The driver responded by driving through the red light, then turned

Both men, in their mid-20s, were slated to appear in Vernon Provincial Court Monday to face a number of charges, including flight from police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, drug possession and breach of probation. Molendyk said there was no indication the that the driver was intoxicated, and the file remains under investigation.

“This investigation is part of the RCMP’s national strategy to combat marijuana grow operations and the organized crime groups running them in our communities.” Molendyk could not say for certain if this grow op was related to organized crime. Nobody was home at the time the warrant was executed, but Molendyk said police expect to make an arrest “in the next couple of days.” The house was posted under the City of Vernon’s drug remediation bylaw, which means it can’t be sold, rented or lived in until the owner brings it back to acceptable codes. This particular file was opened in 2010. “Some of these grow ops will take quite a bit of time (to investigate),” said Molendyk. “It’s getting more and more complicated to get a search warrant.”

Downtown crash sends two to hospital ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A two-vehicle early morning weekend collision in downtown Vernon resulted in the arrest of one North Okanagan man. Vernon RCMP were called to an accident in the downtown core at 2:40 a.m. Sunday. “A red Jeep Cherokee was travelling on 30th Avenue when it was in collision with a silver Chevrolet Cavalier,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. The Cavalier was located about 30 feet south of 30th Avenue, facing north, on 34th Street.
Molendyk said the occupants of the Jeep were still at the scene. They were transported by ambulance to hospital to be checked out. The driver and passenger of the Cavalier fled the scene, but were located a short time later in the 3300 block of 31st avenue. The driver of the Cavalier, a 29-year-old Armstrong man, was arrested and charged with impaired driving, prohibited driving and refusing to provide a breath sample. “Our officers would like to thank a witness who helped in reporting they saw the driver run from the scene,” said Molendyk.
A routine traffic stop led to RCMP officers recovering stolen snowmobiles. Members of the North Okanagan Traffic Services were conducting patrols on Highway 97A near Canyon Road in Enderby Saturday at 6:30 p.m. when they stopped a blue Dodge
pickup towing a trailer that had no working tail lights. “There were two sleds on the trailer, and one on the truck, and one sled was confirmed stolen out of Lethbridge in 2010, and one was confirmed stolen out of Vernon in 2009,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “We are checking
into the possibility of the third one being stolen, as its vehicle identification number appeared to be damaged.” Police seized all three snowmobiles. The driver, a North Okanagan man, told police he bought all of the sleds as used equipment. The file remains under investigation and

Making up the difference
ven the experts have bad days, but when they do, taxpayers are left holding the bag. Coldstream council has been forced to find an additional $180,000 after it was discovered that the $1.3 million approved by voters in November may not be sufficient to construct a badly needed mechanics shop. The reason for the extra cash is the proposed new structure is undersized and may not fit all of the equipment that needs to be inside. Who designed the building and did they speak to anyone who works inside the current mechanics shop day-today and is familiar with the size of the equipment? Where was municipal Richard Rolke administration and the council members who encouraged the borrowing of funds when this was going on? Such an immediate cost overrun may leave residents wondering what’s next once construction actually begins. The good news is the district has the $180,000 but the bad news is it’s coming out of the pavement management plan. That means fewer resources for the moonscapes known as roads. Coldstream, though, isn’t the only jurisdiction faced with challenges. By now, everyone is familiar with the saga of the Vernon Recreation Complex pool. Just 19 years after a multi-million-dollar upgrade and expansion, $1.4 million in repairs are needed because the walls were not adequately constructed. “This, in combination with a lack of a dehumidification system, has resulted in damage to the structure of the swimming pool walls and roof system,” states a report from the Regional District of North Okanagan.

A number of questions arise: Was the inadequate construction the result of a flawed design process? Who was overseeing construction? Who signed off on the final inspection? The other factor at play is the dehumidifier. Apparently the gadget was undersized when it was first installed in 1993 and because of costly operational issues to keep it running, a decision was made in 1998 to shut it down. The pool gets extremely humid and while staff has done an admirable job letting outside air in to cool things down, the lack of a dehumidifier contributed to structural challenges created by the original construction deficiencies. It would be good to know the thought process that went into the decision to pull the plug on the dehumidifier. It was likely financial given that a replacement compressor costs $10,000. But were there actions that could have been taken to rectify the situation long-term instead of waiting for a giant repair bill to surface? Now this isn’t about wagging fingers at those involved. But precious tax dollars are being doled out to handle the unexpected realities surrounding the Coldstream mechanics shop and the swimming pool. Both Coldstream and RDNO need to sit down and look at what actions led to more cash being forked out. Are there changes in the planning and oversight processes that could be initiated? Obviously there should be better communication between staff and elected officials when decisions — such as shutting down a dehumidifier — could have far-reaching implications. Once again, this isn’t about going on a witch hunt. There are a lot of well-trained and well-intention people within the public service. But if we don’t reflect on how we got here, we could be destined to repeating the mistakes of the past.
There’s no question the Vernon Kokanee Swim Club is considering what’s best for its members, sport and the community as a whole. A new 53-metre pool with eight to 10 lanes would provide an ideal setting for young athletes, possibly propelling them towards the Olympics and Commonwealth Games. There would also be an opportunity to host more swim meets, bolstering Vernon’s reputation for sports tourism. However, beyond periods when both the club and recreational swimmers are competing for space, recreation officials state only half of the capacity of the current pool area is used overall. A recent study also indicates the local population isn’t growing enough to require a second aquatic centre until 2026 or 2030. Demographics not only provide users but, more importantly, the tax base necessary to pay for such facilities. It should also be pointed out that it was in 1993 that millions of dollars were invested in renovating and expanding the pool into the attraction we now enjoy. In comparison, other amenities have been allowed to lag and that means there are competing demands on taxpayers’ dollars for a sports complex, museum and art gallery, not to mention critical infrastructure like roads and water. A new aquatic centre isn’t going to occur over night but if there is a positive, it is the swim club’s willingness to work with local officials and the community to plan for the eventuality of a new facility. And given that the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee may launch a needs assessment by 2015, it’s good to know one partner will be at the table.

Dreamlift Day does it again
ho would have dreamed 18 years ago, when Wendy’s Dreamlift Day started with one restaurant and raised $10,500 that it would grow to raise $114,276 in a single day? That was this year’s total. But then, who could have imagined the magic that happens on the last Wednesday every January in the Southern Interior of B.C.? It can’t be said enough: I truly don’t know of any philanthropic gesture that matches these nine Wendy's. To donate everything for the day — all of their wages, salaries and profits — is unheard of. This year was very special, topping $1 million raised over 18 years. Wendy Thomas and seven Orange County sheriff representatives flew in to help celebrate this milestone. It truly is a milestone, not only in the amount raised, but also in how the event is self-sustaining. It doesn’t just keep going; it keeps growing. DOG PARKS As a dog owner, one has the obligation to love, train, feed, take for walks and pick up after your dog. It is unfortunate that there are so many dog owners who feel that they do not have to pick up after their dogs. Seven days a week, I visit the enclosed, safe-to-let-your-dog-runloose dog park on Mutrie Road and on a regular basis, I notice dog owners who just basically stand around while their dogs have fun running around. How does the owner know where their dogs have gone for a number 2? They don't that's how! I've had to dodge doggy land mines many a time and it's not fun. Fortunately for me and other responsible owners, this park is one of the better parks. This happens in all dog parks not only the one on Mutrie Road. The worst is the BX Ranch dog park. Not only is it not an enclosed dog park, which would be a lot safer to let your dog run loose and have fun, but it's one which I think has more neglectful dog owners, who would rather walk ahead of their dog so not to have to bend over and poop-scoop. There is no reason not to pick up after your dog especially since there are free doggy bags at both of the above mentioned dog parks. If your dog could clean up after itself, it wouldn't need you. Please be more thoughtful of other dog owners and pick up after
The result, as you all know is there will be a planeload of very special kids who get to fly to see Minnie and Mickey every other year (the last left Kelowna Dec. 6 with excitement flowing everywhere). And, it’s all because of all of you. For some of you, it involved a very long wait to support our charity. Excitedly announcing, “I’ve been here from the third year,” or… “I’ve been here from….” To the volunteers who came in to flip hamburgers, and other jobs, thank you. And to all the media for your wonderful support delivering messages before, during and after the event, a big thank you. So this note of thanks is to you all from a lot of very special kids. Many have already had their dream come true, and many more will in the future. On behalf of them.... Steven Tuck, Past-President, B.C. Interior Chapter Sunshine Foundation of Canada
your dog. It is a privilege that we have these lovely dog parks in the first place. Don't ruin that. Not afraid to bend down and pick up, P.L. Mondor LEGION GRATEFUL On New Year's Day, the Oyama Royal Canadian Legion and the Oyama Fire Department had their annual polar bear dip in Wood Lake, with more than 40 people, young and old, taking a dip in the icy water. On behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion, I would like to give a real big thank you to all who took the dip and all of the people who came out to show their support. When we first started this event, two or three people braved the cold. Last year, the fire department boys cut six inches to make an opening in the ice. This year, we were lucky and there was no ice. Phil Rawsthorne Oyama Royal Canadian Legion Past-President THANK YOU I have heard nothing lately but negative about our health system in B.C. I have a story that is with the utmost praise for that system and especially the people that work in it. I was admitted into Salmon Arm's hospital Sept. 23, 2011 with a knee infection that had got into my blood
stream, literally fighting for my life. I was put into an induced coma as the infection was getting worse by the hours, I was told. I woke up in the middle of October after the infection was stabilized and life support taken off. I don't remember the previous three weeks at all. It was pretty rough. I was told they had opened up my knee three times during that time to try to catch the infection. I was then taken down to the main hospital ward for a further two-week stay at Vernon Hospital and then discharged at the end of October. I then got home visits from the nurses at the Armstrong out-patient clinic for five weeks until I could get into their facility for another three weeks of care. It will be a long, life-changing recovery, I'm told, and this has given me the utmost respect and gratitude for the doctors, nurses and our health care system, especially Vernon Jubilee and the ICU staff. I owe you people my life and my hat's off to you forever. The other person that had a part in my being able to pull through this was my wife, who noticed the signs of me being as sick as I was and taking me in that night and not waiting until the next morning, which the doctors said would probably have been too late. We, who live in the best country and province in the whole world, are

taking for granted our health care system and the workers who make it. It seems like we only hear about the overcrowding and the wait times to see a doctor that make headlines. I just wanted to give all health care workers in our beautiful province some words of praise. You people are the best in the world and when things get hectic, you always come through. This includes the ones who work at our extended care facilities and out-patient clinics. I think about the jobs you people do for us in B.C., the best place on earth, every day and thank you for saving my life. Axel Frederick IT'S A START Congratulations Mayor Sawatzky on your decision not to take a wage increase. A good start for Vernon. I'm impressed. Now, how about an increase on the average pension. The cost of living is going up and the pension stays the same. Picture this: pension cheque comes in in and a decision is made — do I eat, pay the rent or turn on the heat and light? Next the homeless on the street. I hear some people say, "Oh, that's their decision. Really?" Are you listening Mr. Mayes? There is an empty army barracks on the hill. The time is now. Bernice Carlow

One-man circus doesn’t just clown around Street performer-turned stage artist Jamie Adkins brings Circus Incognitus to town Morning Star Staff
Get ready for a wild adventure of clowning around and acrobatic feats from the ground up to a slackwire above the stage. Natural clown Jamie Adkins is bringing his one-man, one-of-a-kind show, Circus Incognitus, to Vernon Wednesday, Feb. 8. The third production in the Performing Arts Centre society’s kids series, Circus Incognitus is more than just juggling and balancing, it’s a full meal deal. With a mixture of Buster Keaton, combined with Cirque-like theatricality, Adkins has taken his performance around the world and continues to forge ahead on his career path. “(Adkins) is always seeking new ways to develop his artistry,” reads Adkins’ bio on his website. “In his newest creation, Circus Incognitus, Adkins showcases, more than ever before, the full range of his talents. He has taken his performance far beyond the bounds of a single role and created an artistic event that springs from his own inner world.” Adkins got his start at age 13 in San Diego, where he delighted passers-by as a street performer. He later joined the San Francisco-based Pickle Family Circus, where he continued to develop his unique talents. He has since gone on to join the ranks of Montréal’s Cirque Éloize (which brought the phenomenal performance, Rain, to the Performing Arts Centre two years ago), with whom he produced his first show of his own creation, Typo. This eclectic clown, juggler, and balancing artist now has years of experience under his belt and has distinguished himself with
Jamie Adkins performs on the slackwire in Circus Incognitus. The San Diego circus theatre performer is coming to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Wednesday, Feb. 8. his unique style that faithfully and humourously conveys the essence of the ordinary man. He has won the admiration of critics and adoration of the circus-going public. “Adkins hasn’t reinvented juggling or clowning, he’s just made them more inter-

Sports and theatrics meld for Winter Carnival dinner theatre Morning Star Staff
There’s a slightly competitive spirit wafting over Winter Carnival this year, and it’s about to play out on the stage. Diners can dish on the action when the Tragically Comic Players brings its latest dinner theatre production to the Sierra Room in the Village Green Hotel, Feb. 8 to 11. Not only will executive chef Ryan Stewart serve up a delicious buffet, the players will provide a fun-filled show that adheres to this year’s Sporting with Winter Carnival theme. Entitled Sporting, eh?, the play’s writer/director Phil Wagner has put together a comedy about athletes and actors. “It is not a musical, but there are plenty of familiar tunes and dance steps that the characters in the play use to warmup; tunes like Eye of the Tiger and You’re the One That I Want,” said Wagner. The play follows two actors who mistakenly show up at wallyball tryouts thinking they are going to auditions for a Winter Carnival play. When two of the “real” wallyball players lose their other two teammates due to an accident and need replacements fast, the captain turns to the actors for help. However, love gets in the way when the tall, dark and handsome captain instantly falls head over heels in love with his new teammate –– who happens to be a gorgeous actress. “The captain’s female wallyball partner and the actress’

of 10.” Sporting, eh? features Brooke Ritchey as Andra, the appealing and energetic actress. Stanley Wenzoski plays her best buddy and dashing, but shy, acting partner. Patrick Byars is the just as dashing captain, and Melanie Stokes plays the cute and witty, yet self-conscious, wallyball partner who has always secretly been in love with her captain. Ariel Klim, last seen in the Vernon Community Music School’s Thoroughly Modern Millie and The Sound of Music, dances and sings up a storm as the captain’s “little” girl. Trudy Kemper plays the athletic director who loves karaoke, while Wagner has a cameo as the custodian who takes it all in. The crew includes Annika Lauriston, Tabitha Smith, and Luke Vandale, all from W.L. Seaton Secondary School. Cathy Wagner is on set construction and also covers as house manager, while technical director is Rod MacDonald. Phil Wagner also designed the set, and David Brotsky provided the stage. Tickets to see Sporting, eh?, recommended for ages 10 and up, are available at the Vernon Winter Carnival ticket office at 3401-35th St. or online at www.vernonwintercarnival. com. Regular price is $48, $43 for seniors and students, and tables can be reserved for groups of eight. Dinner is at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m For more information, contact the Carnival office at 250545-2236 or the Tragically Comic Players in Lumby at 1-250547-6045.

A record-breaking 130 musicians perform on stage at the Performing Arts Centre for the Okanagan Symphony’s Fireworks concert, Sunday. Haydn’s musicians needed to return home after an over-long summer retreat. So he composed the symphony so as to give his client a hint that it was time to leave. So much so that in the fourth movement, after each musician had played his Jim Elderton final notes, he walked off the stage. Finally, only two were left. Even Thomson left the podium, with Denis Letourneau and Imant Raminsh being the last two playing, drowned by applause. Hardly surprising, then, that this became known as the Farewell Symphony. After intermission,

ow many more times can the Okanagan Symphony raise the bar, continuing to delight its ever-increasing audience? On Sunday, we heard three major treats, in addition to Haydn’s excellently rendered Symphony #45. Music director and conductor Rosemary Thomson commenced with Toronto-born Gary Kulesha’s Fireworks and Procession, composed in 2005 for a northern Ontario tour by the Toronto Symphony. At the Performing Arts Centre, we experienced Imaxlike sound, with brass chords coming from the boxes above. The music was unusually powerful –– and all around us –– a dramatic piece suggesting a vast visual event. The Haydn symphony was in the classic four movement structure, with a brisk and purposeful opening. However, the piece began to reflect the circumstances of its composing –– when
4801 27th St. Vernon, B.C. 250-542-3321
the stage was dramatically different. The Performing Arts Centre normally uses black drapes (“legs”) to mask the wings, and for once these were removed, the only way to make the stage wide enough for four separate orchestras performing together. Amidst a sea of 130 chairs, a mere seven musicians at centre stage performed Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #6. These six concerti, widely regarded as among the finest compositions of the baroque era, were written for the Prussian town of Brandenburg, and each uses a different arrangement of musicians. The soloists for #6 play the lower-pitched string instruments, and without violins. Here two violas and a cello took the leads, with bass, cello and harpsichord (played by Thomson) providing continuo. Basso continuo, almost universal in the baroque era, provide the harmonic structure of the music, and the instrumentalists playing this backing are called the continuo group.
Bach has often been labelled “the father of jazz.” Certainly here, the musical division between front line and back line was clear, and it was wonderful to see one of these famous pieces played live. The usual three movement structure started with a beautifully layered opening, followed by a traditional adagio. It finished with a spectacular multi-layered gallop in 12/8 time, earning a standing ovation. Finally, la pièce de résistance: While wave after wave of musicians came on stage, Thomson introduced us to The Carriage House Orchestra (music directors Bev Martens and Morna Howie), the Night Owl Community Orchestra (music director Sheila French), the Youth Symphony of the Okanagan (music directors Imant Raminsh and Dennis Colpitts), and finally the Okanagan Symphony orchestra. Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks was commissioned in England for the staging of a royal extravaganza
in celebration of the declaration of peace after the Austrian War of Succession. And the British treasury spared no expense. A renowned fireworks specialist was imported from Paris to stage the display in Green Park adjoining Buckingham Palace. Unfortunately, the event was a disaster. It started with bad weather, then as the evening unfolded, the fireworks went off at the wrong times, and part of the scaffolding built to erect one of the displays caught fire. But the piece survived its doomed launch and remains “one of the most skillfully crafted and enjoyable of all scores written for ceremonial occasions.” Starting with the overture, a grand opening piece, this was almost like an extended trumpet fanfare backed by the entire orchestra. Throughout the piece, we had this gloriously rich sound again and again, which with 130 musicians, must surely be a record both for Okanagan Symphony and the Performing Arts Centre.

Parallel lives connect in Café Vernon Film Society
The Vernon Film Society will bring Café de Flore to the Towne Cinema on Monday. Directed by JeanMarc Vallee, one of Canada’s most compelling filmmakers (The Young Victoria, C.R.A.Z.Y), the film presents an unconventional love story in which two narratives are woven together to create a tale of emotion and destiny. The first story, set in present-day Montreal, focuses on Antoine (Kevin Parent), a successful DJ and divorced father of two girls who is wildly infatuated with his girlfriend Rose. However, Antoine still has strong ties to his ex-wife Carole, and it’s evident that all is not over between them. Carole harbours a secret belief that Antoine will return to her and their eldest daughter reinforces this belief by playing their special song at every opportunity. The second story takes place in Paris in 1969.

French actress Vanessa Paradis plays the mother of a boy with Down syndrome in Café de Flore. Jacqueline (Vanessa Paradis) is the fiercely devoted mother of Laurent, a young boy with Down syndrome. With her son’s life expectancy limited to 25 years, Jacqueline devotes every spare moment to enriching and prolonging his life. When a young girl with Down syndrome joins Laurent’s school class, their carefully controlled world begins to fall apart. It seems initially that music is the only link between the two stories, but as Carole’s nightmares and sleepwalking intensify, we
begin to sense that she is somehow connected to Jacqueline. With its superbly paced fluidity, Café de Flore possesses an undeniable musicality; its layered, rhythmic beat mixes together two powerful tales of love and loss. The film is rated 14A for sexually suggestive scenes and nudity. It is in French with English subtitles. Café de Flore will be shown at the Towne Monday at 5:15 and 7:45 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and one week ahead at the theatre and the Bean Scene for $7.

A positive attitude as a philosophy of life, with an emphasis on passing on that creed to young people, is the goal for all Optimist Club members. B.C.’s newest Optimist Club, and the only one outside the Lower Mainland, was chartered in September with Jan Mori as president. Optimist International, which was founded in New York in 1911, has the motto Bringing Out the Best in Kids, and now has clubs around the world. “I heard about the Optimist Club through a longtime curling friend. He suggested getting a club going here and the more we talked about it, the more I thought it would be a good thing for the community,” said Mori. “We have a great group of people from all backgrounds and all ages, men and women. People like the idea of the camaraderie of a service club, doing some good in the community and helping all children.” Each club can decide to do Optimist programs, which include a junior golf program, youth curling, speaking and essay contests, building youth self esteem, and youth safety for the Internet and in recreational activities. “We want to look at where there are gaps in community services for kids and see what we can do. This is a great opportunity to support existing youth organizations or to meet other needs. I have never been in a group that has such a varied membership and that makes it interesting for all of us, to have the different points of view and ideas,” said member Phyllis Dyck. One of the first projects for the new club is an essay contest for youth. Entrants must be under age 18 by Dec. 31, 2011
CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR
Phyllis Dyck, back, and Jan Mori discuss the North Okanagan Optimist Club activities to help children. The mandate for the new club is “Bringing out the best in kids.” and can submit original essays of 700800 words until Feb. 15. The essays are judged locally and then go on to district and international levels and are eligible for scholarships. For more information contact Dyck at 250-545-0191 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. “As a new club, we need to get involved in the community, let people know we are
here and get started on some more projects,” said Mori. The Optimist Club meets the second Monday evening of each month at The People Place in Vernon. For more information about the local Optimist Club or becoming a member, see www.northokanaganoptimistscanada.ca or e-mail CLUB32034.email@example.com.
Workshops build a bridge between faiths Morning Star Staff

Bringing Hawaii to Vernon
here’s nothing like getting away from the snow and cold and vacationing in a tropical climate with sunshine, warm breezes blowing through the palm trees, beautiful beaches, and lots of new foods to taste and enjoy. Like all vacations, ours had to end, and we arrived home to the cold of our Okanagan winter, wishing we were still in Hawaii. I enjoyed so many fresh fish dishes while in Maui Cathi Litzenberger and they were my favourites by far. However, I also enjoyed the pork served at the luau we attended, and have decided to share a similar tasting recipe for it today. Pineapple is cheaper here than in Maui ($6.29 there, believe it or not), and the rest of the ingredients are almost as easily found for the fish recipe below, and it is most delicious. Mid-winter is a good time to change up some of the same old, same old foods we eat so give these a try and pretend you’re in a warmer place.
KITCHEN WIT & WISDOM
Macadamia Nut-Crusted Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Salsa 3 ounces macadamia nuts 3 ounces bread crumbs 6 (6 ounce) mahi mahi fillets (can be substituted with halibut; fillets to be not too thick) 1 tablespoon olive oil 4 ounces butter 2 ounces shallots, diced Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a food processor or blender, pulse together macadamia nuts and breadcrumbs until finely ground. Pour nut mixture onto a plate. Lightly rub oil on all sides of fillets, and coat fish fillets with nut mixture. Make salsa, set aside. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry fillets on both sides until nuts are golden brown. Remove to a baking pan. Bake mahi mahi in preheated oven about 10 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F. Add shallots to skillet, and cook until transluscent; add salsa and heat just until heated through. Plate fish on a bed of rice and top with fresh salsa mixture. Delicious! Fresh Pineapple Salsa 1-1/2 cups fresh pineapple, diced
1/4 cup red bell peppers, finely chopped 1/4 cup green bell peppers, finely chopped 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, finely chopped 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste 1/2 teaspoon lime zest To prepare: combine pineapple, red and green peppers, cilantro, 1 tablespoon lime juice, red pepper flakes and lime zest in medium bowl. (Pineapple Salsa may be prepared 1 to 2 days ahead and refrigerated.) Luau Pork in a Slow Cooker 1 (6 pound) pork butt roast 1-1/2 tablespoons Hawaiian sea salt, or sea salt, or Kosher salt 1 tbsp. liquid smoke Pierce pork all over with a carving fork. Rub salt then liquid smoke over meat. Place roast in a slow cooker. Cover, and cook on Low for 16 to 20 hours, turning once during cooking time. Remove meat from slow cooker, and shred, adding drippings as needed to moisten. Serve on toasted buns with cole slaw or serve as is as part of a luau dinner party.
Mind Spa is a chance to unwind from everyday stress Letting go of the pressures of everyday life is the idea of an upcoming workshop led by professional counsellors and hypnotherapists Carole Fawcett and Phebe-Jane Poole. Mind Spa takes place Feb. 9 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Fawcett said it’s a chance for
participants to give their mind a peaceful and relaxing spa experience. “You’ll be able to apply this experience to managing the ordinary and extraordinary stress that enters our busy lives,” she said. “If you would like to be refreshed,
rejuvenated and feel better than you’ve felt in a long time, make sure you attend and learn how hypnosis can help you relax.” Mind Spa takes place at the People Place in Vernon. To register, call Fawcett at 250-550-0316 or Poole at 250-307-3015.

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

Islands are a very special feature to kitchens design and added functionality. Size is proportionate to available space. Your egress from the island countertop front edge to the wall countertop front edge should be between 36” & 42”, 42” being ideal and if space allows I have done a few at 48” (but that should be the rare exception). The reason for this is in your footing. You should only be transferring your position in one clean step, otherwise you are shufﬂing a half step and this creates a trip zone and wears on your ﬂooring. You can make the island as big as you have room for as long as it does not extend beyond the footprint of the kitchen or interfere with natural trafﬁc ﬂow. Your work stations should all be on no more than two sides of an island, other wise it will become an impediment to function and ﬂow. Big islands should all be one level. The raised eating bar is more for smaller or angled islands. The bigger the island the more features is should have to make a grand statement such as posts, ﬂutes, corbels, library panel, furniture kick, glass doors or wine racks, etc.

What are some marketing trends for 2012?
I believe there are two types of answers to this question; trends in marketing mediums and overall marketing trends. Trends in marketing mediums include LBM (Location Based Marketing), QR Codes and of course, social media. An overall marketing trend however is the SIMPLICITY of a single message in advertising. With the overwhelming number of messages vying for our attention every day, simplicity is something to take seriously in your marketing. With a clear focused message in whatever medium you choose you will be more apt to receiving the attention of your audience. Keep this in mind when you’re planning an advertising campaign stay focused on one simple message and make sure you let it run its course before you implement a new campaign.(www.pantone.com)
Assessment Case Manager Is there anything I can do to avoid getting Alzheimer’s disease as I get older?
There are many predispositions or risks associated with contracting Alzheimer’s disease. If we avoid them, our risk is significantly reduced. Some of these risks include smoking, full-time caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, not keeping control of diabetes, being overweight (obese) or underweight, being lonely (particularly living alone) and having untreated sleep apnea, among many. These are negative risks. Positive interventions reduce the risk. They include removing saturated fats from your diet, taking specifically-tailored vitamins, drinking coffee in moderation, doing brain-stimulation exercises, practicing Tai-chi, meditation or yoga, maintaining higher HDL cholesterol, walking aerobically, drinking fruit and vegetable juices. We would be pleased to provide a free consultation on your risk for acquiring Alzheimer’s disease.
Yes! Tank-less water heaters or on demand type water heaters have been found to be more energy efﬁcient. Recent studies by CMHC found that gas ﬁred on demand water heaters were 46% more efﬁcient than the conventional gas ﬁred storage water heaters. One drawback was noted that 2% more water consumption was recorded due to a delay in hot water arriving at the tap & consumer’s tendency to use more hot water because the supply was endless. And the supply is endless, as an example, I had one installed in my home. One day I drained my hot tub to clean it & replace the water; I then ﬁlled it with hot water via my hot water on demand system. I had to wait for the water in the hot tub to cool down before I could use the hot tub. The cost of retroﬁtting an on demand water heater is more than a conventional water heater. A conventional heater may cost around $1000 to replace while to retroﬁt an on demand water heater will most likely start at $2500 or more. Shop around for your best deal, Information on energy savings research can be found on the CMHC web site. And remember: when in doubt, always ask an expert.

One of the biggest exercise myths is that you can lose fat in an area of the body by strength training or exercising that speciﬁc body part. The truth is that ‘spot reducing’ does not work because we can’t dictate from where our bodies will lose the fat, nor can we change fat into muscle. Doing triceps exercises will not decrease the amount of fat someone has on the back of their arms any more than doing crunches will decrease the amount of fat someone has on their stomach. As you age, skin becomes less elastic, so ‘ﬂabby arms’ are somewhat a product of age. Any exercise that you do which decreases you body fat percentage will help you lose fat not just on your arms but from all areas.
How do I decide on what options I should purchase for my kitchen?

What are the fees for physiotherapy?
The private fee for physiotherapy is $6000 for the initial visit & $5000 for subsequent visits. Medical Services Plan may cover a portion of the fee depending on your income. MSP will pay a maximum of 10 visits per calendar year. The initial patient paid fee is $3700 & subsequent visits would be $3000. If you have extended medical coverage, you pay the private fee up front & then submit your receipts to your extended health provider & they reimburse you directly. If you are coming in for physiotherapy due to a motor vehicle accident with an ICBC claim, the user fee is $2000. If you are injured at work & have been approved for physiotherapy Work Safe BC will cover full costs of your visits. 250-545-6030 201, 4710 - 31 Street Vernon
What is codependency?
Contrary to what many people believe, codependency does not only refer to dependent relationships that involve substance abuse. It is a set of maladaptive, compulsive behaviours that family members learn while growing up in families where there is a lot of stress & emotional pain. Basically, codependent adults were once children who had an adult to worry about. As adults, codependents usually have little contact with their inner world, and try to control inner feelings by controlling people, things or events on the outside. They may suffer from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and often have difficulty in their relationships. Some characteristics of codependency include: • Minimize, alter or deny feelings • Feel overly responsible for others • Difficulty with setting boundaries and saying “no” • Unable to ask others to meet their needs or wants • Feelings of being “different” • Masters of denial Recovery means changing the focus from outward to inward, from exterior to interior and rediscovering the voice and the feelings inside. I’d like to offer hope, support, education, individual & group counselling to others who are struggling. I welcome your call for consultation and appointment.

Striker sinks Lakers in final Morning Star Staff
Tournament MVP Sam Striker flushed 45 points as the Heritage Christian Knights of Kelowna stopped the Kalamalka Lakers 88-70 in Saturday’s final of the Charles Bloom Timberwolves Senior Boys Basketball Invitational. All-star selection Nathan Meyer led Kal with 21 points. Kal guard Steven Goebel took the Top Defender award. Striker supplied 35 points as the Knights upended the Nakusp Cougars 85-34 in the semifinals. All-star Kyle Bowman rung up 23 points for Nakusp. Max Wilford canned 22 points as Kal bounced Bloom 87-30 in the other semi. Gideon Dalhuisen netted eight points for the T-Wolves. Bloom led the Lakers 10-6 halfway through the first quarter, but struggled with Kal’s pressure zone defence, scoring only 20 points the rest of the way. “Our conditioning and mental strength were exposed against Kal today,” said Bloom coach Nathan Lee. “Full credit to Kal and their coaching staff – they have those boys playing very good defence and aggressive ball.” Bowman bagged 17 points as Nakusp stuffed Bloom 67-42 in the consolation final. Pat Michaud drained 10 points for the T-Wolves. “Again, a tough loss for our group,” said Lee. “I felt that we could compete with Nakusp, but we struggled to do the little things and they exploited us in transition. This weekend was a good experience for these young men – they are starting to realize that the game at this level is hard, physical and quick. We’ll have a good hard practice Monday and I expect that they will be much better this week during league play.” Bloom travels to Sicamous for league play tonight against the Eagle River Talons. The Talons took seventh place in Lumby with a 49-47 win over the Ashcroft Golden Rams. Jorden Rocky fired 15 points Eagle River. The Merritt Panthers rocked the Osoyoos Rattlers 66-22 to finish fourth. Terrell Balart of the LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR Panthers made the all-star team.

Cotter collects payday Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s Jim Cotter couldn’t help but share a bemused laugh with Coldwater, Ont.’s Glenn Howard in Dawson Creek. Howard always seems to be on his A-game whenever the two rinks meet, and Saturday afternoon was no different as the Ontario skip earned an 8-3 win in the semifinals of the $100,000 Pomeroy Inn & Suites National, the third leg of Capital One Grand Slam of Curling series. “They poured it on early,” said Cotter, whose rink – third Kevin Folk, second Ty Griffith and lead Rick Sawatsky – pocketed $9,000 for making the semis. “He always plays unbelievable against us. “We were happy with how it went. We’re heading into the right direction as we head to provincials (this weekend in Parksville).” Howard counted four points over the first three ends and added doubles in five and seven to secure a berth in the championship game, where he outlasted Edmonton’s Kevin Martin 6-5 Sunday afternoon. Howard’s rink collected $20,000 for first place, with Martin earning $11,000 as runner-up. In the quarterfinals earlier Saturday, Cotter counted two in six and a single steal in eight to upend Edmonton’s Kevin Koe 5-3. The win served as a little redemption as Koe was the lone rink to defeat Cotter in preliminary pool play, earning a 6-4 decision in the opening draw.

Late deuce boosts Vipers Black Press Sports
An empty-net goal is normally supposed to spell victory for the team that scores it. Not so for the host Prince George Spruce Kings, who watched in disbelief as they were upended 5-4 by the Vernon Vipers in a B.C. Hockey League overtime thriller before 937 fans Sunday afternoon at the Coliseum. The Snakes, who fell 7-2 to the Sprucies a night earlier, and were fighting for their playoff lives, forced OT with a two-goal surge in the final minute of regulation, the first coming on a penalty shot rewarded by referee Grant Tyson after forward Colton Sparrow was hauled down by defenceman Ben Woodley on a breakaway. Injured on the play, Sparrow was unable to take the shot, so head coach Jason Williamson called on Colton Cyr (13th goal), who made no mistake converting. Mike Zalewski (26th and 27th) ensured the Vipers gained at least a point by scoring with 20 seconds to play, and made it two points by slipping the puck five-hole on Prince George netminder Ty Swabb just 22 seconds into the extra frame. “It was a pretty crazy finish there,” Zalewski told Black Press after the game. “I think everybody just kind of realized the importance of this game today, especially after losing last night, and we just stayed up on the bench.” Sunday’s OT win wasn’t the first time Vernon has stunned Prince George with late-game heroics. In the first meeting between the two teams on Oct. 1, the Vipers scored three times in a 1:26 span to brush back the Sprucies by the same 5-4 OT scoreline. — Dave “Jason did a real strong job of letting us know we can’t quit and things can happen,” said Zalewski, named first star for his hat-trick performance. “We’ve come back against that team before late in the game so we just tried to stay up. Everybody battled hard on our team, we really dug deep and it was a great win. “I think it means a lot winning that game as far as us moving forward. I think we go into this next week with some confidence, and get back to work.” The 21-20-1-2 Vipers trail the 22-17-24 Spruce Kings by five points for the final Interior Conference playoff spot, with a game in hand. Vernon begins a five-game home stand at Wesbild Centre Friday night against the Merritt Centennials (26-14-25). Trent Dorais’ Alberni Valley Bulldogs

Sunday’s loss was a tough one to swallow for Spruce Kings’ head coach Dave Dupas. “That was a three-point swing in the last 50 seconds,” he said. “Instead of us being up eight (points) on them, we’re up five on them. That’s three points in the standings in a 50-second span and it’s just, I’d like to say it’s unfortunate, but it really isn’t unfortunate because we did it to ourselves and it’s unacceptable. “We get caught standing around and they get a breakaway for a penalty shot, which should never ever happen, and after that we had a chance to get the puck out a couple of times. We tried to flip it out, we Dupas didn’t get it out.” Goals by Sparrow (10th, powerplay) and Zalewski (25th), and the Spruce Kings’ Zack Rassell (2nd) made it 2-1 Vernon after 40 minutes. Paul De Jersey, with his BCHL-leading 37th goal, fired the first of three unanswered Spruce King snipes in a fourminute span in the third period. Leo Fitzgerald (10th and 11th) had the other two, including the empty-netter at 18:49. Kirby Halcrow made 20 stops for the win, while Swabb recorded 25 saves for the Sprucies. Viper rookie Adam Tambellini had an assist and was named third star. The 17-year-old committed to the NCAA Division 1 North Dakota Fighting Sioux Tuesday morning. “He’s a pretty talented kid going to a

high-end school,” said Williamson. “He’s got a great career ahead of him. He comes to play every night and he just wants to get better, he wants to be a pro.” Saturday night, Prince George’s Jujhar Khaira pocketed a pair of goals and second star, De Jersey supplied 1+2 and Gerry Fitzgerald had a goal and an assist. Tied 1-1 after the first period, the Spruce Kings poured on the offence with four unanswered goals in the second period. “Three goals on about four shifts, it just kind of snowballed on us,” said Williamson. Captain Pat McGillis, scoring his eighth goal on a first-period powerplay, and linemate Ben Gamache (6th), adding a consolation goal late in the third period, handled Vernon’s offence. SNAKE BITES: Viper forward Brendan Persley missed Sunday’s encounter serving the first of an automatic two-game suspension he earned for incurring a major for a blow to the head on the Spruce Kings’ Trevor Esau Saturday night. With Vernon d-man Max Mowat injured, the Vipers rolled with just 10 forwards and five dee...Vipers’ assistant coach Chris Shaw also missed Sunday’s game to be with girlfriend Kristi Shields for the birth of their daughter, Paisley, who weighed in at six pounds, 12 ounces. Viper grad Bryce Kakoske filled in admirably behind the bench. Joked Williamson: “He was pretty quiet, pretty nervous, but he did well. We might have got him addicted after a comeback like that.”...Williamson said injured forwards John Knisley and Darren Nowick are questionable for weekend action.

Midget Vipers pilfer from POE Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers skated to a 4-4 tie with Pursuit of Excellence Saturday in Winfield to take three out of four points from the Kelowna squad on consecutive weekends. The Okanagan Mainline Tier 1 Midget Hockey League Vipers doubled up on POE in shots in the first period and earned a 3-2 lead after 20 minutes. Ryan Beach got the Vipers on the board with a point shot, from fellow d-man Austin Krahn and Braydon Sophonow. Richard Meaney tallied for the second game in a row, from Cody Hendrickson, while Wyatt Bonneau scored one from point-blank range, assisted by Sophonow and Beach. POE potted two in the second period to take a one-goal lead into the final frame. Krahn pinched in from the point to bang home the tying marker, assisted by Curtis Sexsmith. Vernon was denied on a breakaway and hit a crossbar in the third. They also had to kill a short 5-on-3 powerplay in the final minute to preserve the victory, with Evan Campagnolo making several key saves in the late going. The Vipers travel Friday afternoon for a game against the North Kamloops Lions at Memorial Arena and then to Penticton on Sunday to play OHA to close out the season. The

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) A failure to select companions who are equally as enthusiastic about life as you are could put too many restrictions on everything you attempt to do and limit your initiative. Choose your chums wisely. ARIES (March 21-April 19) If you want to perform effectively, you’ll need to be systematic in all that you do. Unless you organize yourself and the job at hand, you won’t accomplish much in the way of anything. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) If you have a bad time, it won’t be because you’re not sociable, but because of the group with which you’re involved. Be more selective about your friends for a happier public presence. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) When you utilize your friendliness and charm, situations in which you’ll be involved will turn out to be fun and successful. Conversely, letting your ego govern the day will cause you unhappiness. CANCER (June 21-July 22) As long as friends are in accord with your views and opinions, you’ll be amicable and fun to be with. Should anyone disagree with you, however, you’ll not be a happy companion. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) The disadvantages of a collective endeavor in which you’re involved will bring down the whole ship if you make them more important than the many positive facets of the project. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It might not be entirely the fault of others if you have problems dealing on a one-
on-one basis with people. You should let your honesty instead of your vanity make the evaluation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Attend first thing, while you are fresh, to all the jobs and responsibilities that must get done. You won’t be as effective handling things when you’re tired. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Again you could find yourself in a similar social situation that you didn’t handle too well previously. If you insist upon repeating the same mistake, expect the same results. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Although you are extremely capable of holding your own when in testy circumstances, you might insist on seeing yourself as the underdog. If you do, it’ll be a no-win situation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be on guard when participating in an activity that has competitive elements. Unfortunately, there’s a chance that you could go up against someone who can’t handle losing.

Bridge by Phillip Alder SHOULD YOU START ON SPADES OR DIAMONDS? Benjamin Franklin said, “I should have no objection to go over the same life from its beginning to the end: requesting only the advantage authors have, of correcting in a second edition the faults of the ﬁrst.” If we could play a bridge deal a second time, we should be able to correct any faults made the ﬁrst time. And, of course, so could our opponents. However, we only get one shot at making the right play -- which is what in today’s deal? South is in four spades. West leads a low heart. East wins with his ace and returns the heart queen. The auction was
sensible and practical. Yes, with four-card support for a ﬁve-card or longer suit, South might have steered his partnership toward diamonds; but with his six solid spades, it was unlikely a diamond contract would have been better. With those solid spades, South might be inclined to ruff the second heart and draw trumps. But he is then left with only one spade. When he turns to diamonds, East takes a trick in the suit and leads a heart, making South ruff with his ﬁnal trump. East wins his second diamond trick and plays another heart to defeat the contract. When you have a side suit that needs to be established, it is usually right to start on that suit
immediately. At trick three, South should play a diamond to dummy’s ace, then lead another diamond. East wins but has no riposte. If he plays a heart, declarer throws a club from his hand, ruffs on the board, and plays another diamond. South ruffs the next heart, draws trumps, and claims.

ERIC FRANKLIN It is with great sadness that the family of Eric Franklin announces his passing on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, at the age of 79 years. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife, Jean; daughters Gillian (Joe) and Barbara; sons Steven (Dawn) and Michael (Jennifer); 6 grandchildren, numerous extended family members and special pal Toby. Eric is predeceased by his brother, Kenneth Franklin. A Memorial Service was held at All Saints’ Anglican Church on Sunday, January 29 at 3:00 p.m. Born to George and Ethel Franklin on May 2, 1932 in London, England, Eric grew up in London. He began his career in the printing profession at the age of 14, sweeping Àoors at a print shop which lead to a seven year printer’s apprenticeship and in 1953 he earned his printer’s certi¿cation. On May 9, 1953 Eric married Jean Simmonds in London. In 1956, with only a few hundred dollars in his pocket, Eric, Jean and their eleven-month old daughter, Gillian, immigrated to Canada after booking passage on the Empress of France. They ultimately settled in Aurora where they purchased their ¿rst home. Eric worked as a printer for Southam News in Toronto and Alliance Press in Newmarket. While living in Aurora, Eric joined Post Paper Box, and progressively moved into management, becoming co-owner for a number of years when Eric, Jean, and their four children moved to Windsor, Ontario. Eric then held a senior position at Windsor Print and Litho and lent his cost-estimation expertise during the company’s transition to a computer-based system. Eric retired from the printing business in 1995 and Eric and Jean moved to Vernon, British Columbia. In the ¿rst ten years of retirement, the couple enjoyed extensive travel to England, Scotland, Iceland, Barbados, Hawaii, Alaska, the Caribbean, and all over the United States and Europe. Throughout his life, Eric was committed to family, community and faith. Eric was extremely fond of the outdoors and enjoyed regular camping trips with his family, hiking and bird watching. While living in Aurora, Eric was a Scout Master, sang in a Barbershop Quartet, and volunteered with the Anglican Church. In Windsor, Eric was a Church Warden and ran the church newspaper for several years. After retiring, Eric was a member of the Naturalist Club and the Vernon Bowling League. He was also a dedicated dog walker for the SPCA for many years and a volunteer for over 14 years at the Vernon Visitor Centre. Eric’s friends and family fondly remember his quick sense of humor and knack for storytelling. He was known for his cheerful disposition and ability to make friends anywhere. He made people feel welcome and comfortable in any situation. Eric worked hard to make a good life for his family and was extremely proud of their accomplishments. He earned the respect of his community by his generous involvement. He will be missed by all who were touched by his love and kindness. In lieu of Àowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to a scholarship set up in Eric Franklin’s name at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario or, to the Vernon SPCA. Letters of condolence may be sent care of the Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
