RCMP Const. Pat Dunbar (above left), Lumby fire chief Tony Clayton and fire inspector Dean Wakefield survey the damage of a Monday evening fire that destroyed Nap’s Laundromat in Lumby. All that is left of the business is charred rubble, including melted washing machines and dryers. The fire at Nap’s Laundromat (below) began at 8:30 p.m. Monday.
Fire devastates family’s dreams RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A family’s aspirations have been left in a pile of twisted metal and blackened timber. Fire roared through Nap’s Laundromat and Nap’s Vacuums on Vernon Street in Lumby at about 8:30 p.m. Monday. “It’s pretty intense,” said Terilyn Skoyen as smoke continued to hang over the scene Tuesday morning. “This was mom and dad’s life.” Skoyen’s parents — Larry and Florence — moved to Lumby 20 years ago and opened the business. Besides being a source of income, the family lived in the building for many years. The sudden loss has hit them hard. “They’re in shock — lost,” said Skoyen of her parents as she fought back tears. Particularly difficult to accept is the fact that nothing appeared to be wrong when the business closed for the night at 8 p.m. Monday.
Within half-an-hour, alarms were ringing. “My dog was kicking up a fuss and my son comes downstairs and says the building across the street is on fire,” said Mike Blain, a resident who lives in a nearby home. “The fire was going up the stairs and the balcony was engulfed in flames.” The occupant of one apartment in the structure was able to escape while the tenant in the second apartment was not home. Firefighters were soon on scene, but the magnitude of the blaze limited their ability to save Nap’s. “There were a lot of flames coming out of the back end — huge flames. It was endangering the gas meter,” said Tony Clayton, Lumby fire chief. “The first priority was cooling down the gas meter and then protecting the exposures.” There was a concern the blaze would spread to another building immediately adjacent to Nap’s.
“It (fire) was within two feet of that building at the front,” said Clayton. Firefighters took over the Shell station parking lot as a staging area and Vernon Street (Highway 6) was shut down to through traffic. Assistance was called in from the Coldstream, Lavington and BX
fire departments. “We had to rotate the guys to keep them warm,” said Clayton of the frigid overnight temperatures. “Our air packs were freezing up.” The torrent of water coming out of hoses also froze, creating an eerie but spectacular landscape as
ice covered trees and power lines. It took until about 1 a.m. before the fire was brought under control and then crews remained on the scene until mid-morning tackling hot spots. An excavator was also brought in to knock down unstable walls that posed a threat to emergency crews. It’s believed the fire originated in the middle or rear section of the structure but a cause had not been determined as of press time. The volume of debris — including charred washers and dryers and disfigured laundry baskets — is proving challenging for investigators. “My guys are on their hands and knees digging in there. They’re looking for anything,” said Clayton. Skoyen’s parents are insured but she isn’t sure if they will rebuild. “I don’t even know what to think. I’m numb watching my parents’ life go up in smoke,” she said.

Lumby loses bid for correctional facility Residents on both sides of the prison debate are looking to heal rifts and plan for Lumbyâ€™s future. The villageâ€™s bid for a 360cell correctional facility has been dashed, with the province choosing to construct a jail on Osoyoos Indian Band land near Oliver. The goal now is to reunite Lumby residents after a divisive year that saw often heated debate. â€œGive it six months and it will be forgotten,â€? said Huguette Allen, with Concerned Citizens of Lumby, which opposed a prison. â€œPeople are so tired of it, they want to forgive and forget.â€? Mayor Kevin Acton, who lobbied for a facility, is pleased the government finally selected a location. â€œPeople will now move on and patch and mend relationships,â€? he
said. But Acton believes the conflict played a role in the prison not coming to Lumby. â€œYou have to look at the resistance. The First Nation did an incredible job pitching it and there was absolutely no resistance there,â€? he said. Acton and the previous council promoted a prison as a way of stimulating the economy. â€œIâ€™m choked. The whole North Okanagan will lose out on a huge economic opportunity,â€? he said of the facility going to Oliver. â€œItâ€™s frustrating because I know how badly Lumby needs the jobs.â€? Acton continues to stand by his actions. â€œIt always makes sense to shop as hard as you can for deals and we gave residents an opportunity to talk about it,â€? he said.

There is nothing else that has been presented. Our young people will be moving away to find work.â€? Gobelle questions if other possible employment opportunities will run into opposition. â€œWe canâ€™t let things slip through our fingers because a handful of people donâ€™t like what it may mean for Lumby,â€? she said.

The next step is to refocus on the economy. â€œWe have to create jobs and a tax base and that means industrial land,â€? said Acton. Allen says a focus on green industry and agriculture could be beneficial for the village long-term. â€œLumby must decide what kind of community it wants to be and who it wants to attract,â€? she said. MLA Eric Foster suggests the future could include generating energy from wood waste. â€œWeâ€™ve been talking to the players here already about the opportunity,â€? he said.

Coun. Nick Hodge says there are already positive economic signs, including a seniors care facility. â€œThat will provide 60 jobs and there will be more traffic between Lumby and Vernon,â€? he said. For prison opponent, Randy Rauck, the debate revealed residents on both sides of the subject are proud of Lumby. â€œIt was a big wake-up call for people to pull together on their passions,â€? he said, adding that the controversy increased the villageâ€™s profile. â€œLumby is on the map. People are interested in coming out to the community.â€? However, not everyone is as optimistic. â€œI hope we can keep our community alive,â€? said Tracie Gobelle, who was with a pro-prison group. â€œWe donâ€™t have any other options.

Explosion damages slide ROGER KNOX
Join Paul & Susan at their new location
Morning Star Staff
A burning aerosol can is the reason for a gaping hole in a slide at the Polson Park playground. Vernon RCMP were dispatched to the park at around 6:40 p.m. Saturday after reports of an explosion. “Officers spoke to several witnesses and were told that three people were observed approaching the playground structure,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “They stopped for a moment, then heard a large explosion and the individuals ran off.” A police service dog team was called, and a track was followed to the parking lot near the Galaxy Cinema at The Shops at Polson Park before the dog lost the scent. The witnesses were unable to provide police with any detailed descriptions of the individuals as it was dark outside. Police discovered that an aerosol can had been lit on fire and placed in the enclosed slide. “The explosion burned a hole through the slide and the can rocketed into the air,” said Molendyk.
LOOK FOR FLYER IN TODAY’S PAPER
An aerosol can lit on fire is believed to be responsible for an explosion and subsequent hole in a slide at the Polson Park playground Saturday. The next day, police were called to a report of a dumpster fire behind Tim Hortons in the 2600 block of Highway 6 at 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The restaurant is directly across the street from Polson Park, and police and fire officials are wondering about a possible connection between the two incidents. “Officials are concerned that these incidents happened less than two days apart in areas close to each other,” said Molendyk. The dumpster fire, started in a bin full of old cardboard,
was put out quickly with foam and water from the Vernon Fire Department, though nobody was around the dumpster when the fire members arrived. There was no damage to any of the surrounding buildings, though the dumpster was scorched. Police are asking anybody with any information on either incident to call the Vernon detachment at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Tips can also be left on the local Crime Stoppers website, www.nokscrimestoppers.com.
Store owner thwarts robbery ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
The owner of a Vernon shop fought back against a would-be robber Saturday. A Caucasian man entered the Village Market, in the 1900 block of 32nd Street, at around 7:15 p.m., produced a knife and demanded money from the store’s owner, who refused. “The suspect became upset. The owner then started throwing items from the counter at the suspect, who fled the store without obtaining anything,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. A police service dog was called to the scene but was unable to pick up a track.
The owner was not injured. Due to a language barrier, police were only able to receive a limited account of what happened. “Officers did speak with a witness nearby, and are checking out to see if there’s any video evidence,” said Molendyk. The suspect was wearing a mask across his face, white runners, blue jeans and a dark hoodie with red stylized writing. Anybody with any information on the incident is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Tips can also be left at the local Crime Stoppers website, www.nokscrimestoppers.com.

Demands for improvements to Highway 6 have existed for years. “We’ve been fortunate not to have a fatality,” said Keith Balcaen, Coldstream Ranch owner. “The accidents keep happening.” Dist r ict of Coldstream officials receive several complaints about conditions on Highway 6 and particularly at the Kalamalka Road intersection. “Council made this a commitment when we were elected two terms ago,” said Coun.

One of the North Okanagan’s most dangerous stretch of roads is getting a complete overhaul. It was announced Tuesday that an $11-million realignment of Highway 6 in Coldstream is proceeding. “It’s a section with a crash rate higher than the provincial average,” said Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom. “Shovels will be in the ground this summer and construction will be completed in the summer of 2013. Our commitment to safety is unquestionable.” About 2.2 kilometres of the highway will be realigned between Grey and Ricardo roads. Existing sharp curves will be straightened to improve sightlines while shoulders will be widened to improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. The intersections at Grey, Kalamalka and Ricardo roads will be

Keith Balcaen, owner of Coldstream Ranch, looks over some of the changes made to the Highway 6 realignment with Eric Foster, VernonMonashee MLA, during an official announcement Tuesday include enlarging the existing Coldstream Creek culvert under the highway to improve fish habitat. An announcement regarding realignment was made in 2010 but Ve r n o n - M o n a s h e e MLA Eric Foster insists
Tuesday’s press conference wasn’t a case of the government recycling projects. “We announced the planning (in 2010) but we didn’t allocate the funds. The funds are now in place,” he said. Foster, who lives
in Lumby, drives this stretch of highway several times a day. He believes the realignment work will be beneficial. “It will move goods up and down the road safer and our residents,” said Foster. Also announced
Tuesday was resurfacing of four kilometres of Highway 97A in Spallumcheen. The $3-million project will extend from Crozier to Pleasant Valley Cross roads and it will complete highway resurfacing from
Vernon to Armstrong. “This will improve the comfort and safety (of motorists),” said Lekstrom. Tenders will be issued in the spring and it’s expected that resurfacing will be completed by the end of August.
Alleged sexual offences under investigation Morning Star Staff
Allegations of sexual assault involve the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS) is investigating allegations that a cadet instructor had an inappropriate relationship with a minor and sexually assaulted another between 2008 and 2011 at cadet camps in Vernon and Victoria. The case was brought forward by the victims’ chain of command who, when made aware of the allegations, immediately contacted the military police.
“Those in a position of leadership in the Canadian Forces are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times, and this type of alleged behaviour is treated with the utmost seriousness by the military police”, said Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Delaney, commanding officer of the CFNIS. Capt. Daniel Moriarity has been charged with two counts of sexual exploitation, and one count of sexual assault. The three counts are both Criminal Code and National Defence Act offences. Moriarity, whose age and hometown were not released by the military, was also
charged under the National Defence Act with one count of behaving in a disgraceful manner. As part of the conditions placed on him after his arrest, Moriarity was required not to have any contact with cadets or attend any cadet functions. The case will now proceed through the military justice system. CFNIS is an independent military police unit with a mandate to investigate serious and sensitive matters in relation to National Defence property, DND employees and CF personnel serving in Canada and abroad.

It’s about time
on Candy could soon be featured in the next episode of Hoarders. Walk around the Greater Vernon Museum, and the curator’s passion for collecting overflows. Goat-trail paths are carved in between artifacts while storage has burst through the doors and into exhibit space. Eras spill over into each other as they compete for space. And the situation is about to get even more exaggerated as plans are underway for a giant case — nine-by-nine at the base and 14-feet high — to contain a century-old clock. “It’s going to take up a lot of real estate,” said Candy of the structure. One may question why Richard Rolke Candy is bothering with the clock when he is already struggling to handle what he has. But to be effective, a museum must be representative of a community’s broad-based past and that means the collection must always be evolving. If a museum doesn’t keep up with the times, it soon becomes irrelevant. “We don’t have a lot of square footage but this artifact is important enough that it deserves space. We will have to rework our displays to fit the clock in,” said Candy. The museum was handed the 1912 clock after the city proceeded with much-needed upgrades to the clock tower on 32nd Avenue. It’s rather ironic that the city is contributing to overcrowding at the museum at the same time that it has ignored the agency’s space issues for years. In fact, the only recent discussion at city hall about assisting the museum was a possible small expansion to the rear of the building. But while such a move would be expedient and get the city off the hook, it would do

absolutely nothing to enhance the long-term viability of the museum or the experience of its visitors. What is realistically required is a structure that is double the current 13,000-square-feet with climate and light controls to protect artifacts, sufficient storage and room for education programs as well as travelling and permanent displays. Obviously this would cost a few million dollars, but consider the benefits of such an investment. Not only would there be an expanded draw for tourists, but such an amenity would provide new residents and businesses with another reason to move here. Our youth would also have increased opportunities to learn about the area. It’s been suggested the museum could possibly be part of the a proposed Vernon Public Art Gallery on the former flower shop site on 31st Avenue, but it’s highly doubtful there is enough room there to meet the needs of both organizations. Instead of just looking for the easy way out, why isn’t the city pursuing a joint museum/ gallery complex on publicly owned Coldstream Hotel property? With virtually an entire block available, other assets, like a tourism centre or farmers market, could be considered, bolstering downtown’s revitalization efforts. The vision could also incorporate that aging time piece that Candy is currently trying to shoehorn in between military uniforms and pioneer memorabilia. “The clock tower could be a focal point for a new building,” he said. Ultimately, the city is in a rut. All it can apparently offer are tired, old plans for minor expansions while worsening conditions at the museum by discarding items it no longer wants. Time is running out for the city to show some leadership.
Both sides of the prison issue are saying the right things. Given that a decision has finally been made and a correctional facility isn’t going to Lumby, those who championed the yes and no campaigns are calling on residents to put aside the past year of conflict and to move ahead. Obviously that is going to be easier said than done for some people. A lot of harsh words and accusations were tossed around and friendships were tested. But Lumby and the surrounding rural area are so much more than just a single issue. There is a rich history of neighbours helping neighbours and people volunteering behind the scenes whether it’s at school, service clubs or sports groups. Families have called the White Valley home for decades and there is a common bond among them. Among those bonds, unfortunately, is the changing economy. Mills have closed over the years and children have been forced to leave town to pursue careers. That’s why the pain and conflict over the prison can be channelled into something positive. Now is the time for village council and those who lobbied for and against a jail to stand side by side and look at ways to create long-term, viable jobs. First off, council should consider holding a public meeting about people’s visions for the future where residents can also express themselves openly about the pain they may have encountered or may have initiated as the prison was being debated. If negative emotions are left unaddressed, any chance of moving ahead will be limited. It should be pointed out that the entire jail controversy revealed that there is a lot of pride in Lumby and a passion for the place people call home. That is a sentiment worth building on.

She states she understands how budgets work from her experience working at the municipal level. She then lauds the reversal of the HST as a good first step. Opposition to the HST does not achieve her other goals at all, on any level. I worked in banking for over 40 years, most of it in commercial finance, so I understand budgets too. Rule one – they should ensure that revenues cover expenses, and work to increase bottom line resources partly by reducing costs; so there would be more “net dollars” to allocate to areas that need it most. This principal applies equally to the public and private sectors. In fact, the HST was slated to reduce taxes (from the current 12 per cent to 10 per cent). The collection of the taxes under HST was much more efficient, and thereby was much less costly to all of us. Fewer very highly compensated public sector employees were
COME AGAIN Re: No acceleration lanes on Highway 97 A upgrade and the government's stupid reasons why. A couple of weeks ago, I turned right out of Armstrong at Smith Road and nearly got in an accident. It was then that I realized that there were no turnout or acceleration lanes on our brand-new, updated four-lane highway that our government just finished building as there used to be on the previous road. So I decided to look further and found that there were eight intersections with deceleration lanes and none of them with acceleration lanes. So I decided to call the mayor of Armstrong and ask him if he could find out why. I have been a professional driver for 30 years and have seen and heard a lot of stupidity, but never have I heard such stupid answers like those that minister representative gave in an edition of our local newspapers. He says acceleration lanes on a four-lane highway aren't as necessary as traffic can pull over to make room for traffic coming on. Does he really think that all people will slow down, be kind and courteous and move over to make room for other traffic? I think not. If anything, people speed up to avoid having another vehicle in front of them. If you're pulling into traffic
needed to administer the program. Now we must rehire many new public sector employees, reinstate an antiquated inefficient system, and continue to pay 12 per cent instead of 10 per cent. I’m not sure how this result ties in at all to her other claims. Increased costs to collect, increased revenues from higher taxes, more government employees whose compensation dollars could have been reallocated to another more needy area, doesn’t seem to tie into the desire to control or reduce all these areas. The reversal of the HST was not a good decision – in my opinion, the negative response was made primarily to send a “short term” message to the government of the day, and the results will end up damaging all of us. My hope is that the next government reinstates the HST, by being honest up front that it is, by far, the best and most fair system for all of us in the province (a “user pay” system, with ample tax credits for low income citizens to offset the relatively higher costs for this group). She does raise the growing spectre of “entitlement” that looms ahead, but that is a subject for another day. Dave Murison
from a side road, it is your responsibility to make sure it's safe before doing so. If acceleration lanes are not needed in this area then why were they put in the previous rebuilt section? He also says if acceleration lanes are too short then merging traffic can't get up to speed to blend in with high-speed traffic on the highway. Well, common sense tells me that not having acceleration lanes is even more dangerous as vehicles can't jump from dead stop to 90 to 100 kph. It's a real shame that our tax dollars are being wasted paying this man's wages and every other government person that had anything to do with this. Millions of dollars foolishly spent on the previous 97A upgrade and more wasted on this one. Another news story in The Morning Star — more stupidity for your reading pleasure about why there are no acceleration lanes. Ministry of Transportation said engineers' studies show that there is a low volume of right-turning vehicles in this corridor. Is everybody coming from the south turning left not turning right to go back? If so, they why was so much money spent on left-turn lanes and deceleration lanes? Why not just build the highway straight
through? I always thought that rebuilding a road was to make traveling safer, not more dangerous. A spokesman for Ministry of Highways says acceleration lanes are used where there are high volumes of right-turning traffic and through traffic. Then why were acceleration lanes built on the previous rebuilt section of 97A just several kilometres down the road with the same volume of traffic? Hello. Is there anybody in any level of government who can use some common sense? You're wasting our tax dollars and I, for one, am seriously tired of it. Don Fraser PEDESTRIAN SAFETY Between the main bus depot and the downtown Safeway there are large "X" marks on the road. These marks signify to motorists that there is a crosswalk ahead. They are not crosswalks themselves. Every day I see people use these marks as crosswalks, putting themselves and motorists in danger. While I assume some of these people are knowingly jay walking (as jay walking appears to be a favorite sport of Vernon) many believe they are crossing where they are supposed to. Crossing at the "X" marks is particularly dangerous as one nears the
roundabout, as motorists may be shoulder checking their blind spot and not see someone crossing. That is always the danger with jay walking: drivers are not prepared for pedestrians in the road other than at marked crosswalks. I have contacted the city about this issue and was told that the city recognizes the concern and will not be repainting the "X" marks. They will also not be removing them. I imagine the issue will only warrant the cost of removing the paint when someone is struck and killed. I hope a little public education can prevent this from happening. Jen Gordon A CHOICE In response to Doug Perkins' letter. I agree with Mr. Perkins about "the endless talking and activity... concerning finding money for basic health care, then maybe it is time to find another party that can rearrange the government priorities." There is another party: B.C. Conservatives under the leadership of John Cummins. For nearly 18 years, Mr. Cummins represented British Columbia in the House of Commons, earning a reputation for speaking his mind and doing what was right for the constituents. You now have a choice.

It’s a bug’s life for this photographer Lisa Torrie aims to shed new light on our insect friends through new exhibition KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
When most people are willing to squish and maim with the bat of a swatter or the sole of a shoe, a local photographer has been aiming her lens at some of life’s smaller, and more delicate, creations. Lisa Torrie wants to preserve a bug’s life through her photography. With a digital camera set to macro and a keen eye, she has been focussing close up on the side of insects we normally don’t see. “When you look at them, some are cool and some are downright creepy,” said Torrie, who is a mother of two and works as a registered massage therapist when not aiming her camera. “But there is a beauty in everything. We’re so out of balance. No one thinks twice about squashing a bug, and with these photos I think there’s a potential to shift that a bit.” Torrie is currently showing her photographic images of insects at Gallery Vertigo’s satellite gallery at the Kalamalka campus of Okanagan College. Entitled Bugs, the exhibition features larger-than-life images: 16-by-20 as well as 18-by-24-inch prints of all kinds of creatures shot in Torrie’s backyard and other locations around the North Okanagan. Curated by local artist Katie Brennan, (see story below), who Torrie met when the two took a course together, the exhibition runs the gamut from images of slugs to butterflies to aphids with their offspring, measuring smaller than a baby fingernail, walking across a rose petal. Torrie often juxtapositions her subjects with that of objects such as a fingernail or pencil to give an idea of size and scale to the

This can be seen with her photos of the praying mantis, measuring four fingers long, which actually posed for Torrie. “It sat on my hand for the longest time and was patient enough for me to take a number of photos. You can even see the pupils of its eyes following me, almost alien like.” Also alien-like is the jumping spider, with its multiple eyes. “It looks like a Muppet, with tufts of fur that look soft,” observes Torrie. “You would never think about petting a spider, but this one actually looks approachable.” Although she has always taken photos, Torrie really started examining the world below her feet after purchasing her first digital camera three years ago. The macro digital component on her camera allowed her to focus on objects just millimeters away, and the process of taking pictures then went from being a purely record-the-moment hobby to a life therapy. “I now have three cameras,” laughed Torrie. “I take my camera everywhere all the time. I also love to focus on plants. I’ve even discovered that some plants have hair. It’s all so out of the ordinary. I definitely tend to shoot less of people now.”
BENJAMIN DILLEN PHOTO
Vernon’s Lisa Torrie has uncovered a whole new world of insects with her photography, currently on display at Kalamalka Vertigo in Okanagan College. This is the first solo exhibition for Torrie, who also dabbles in painting. Her natural talent comes genetically as her mother, Lorreen Norman Chambers, is an artist and painted a number of the murals that can be seen around Lumby. “I find my photography is constructed more compositionally than my paintings. I’m trying to do different things with my paintings by taking a photo of them and printing the
image on glass and other materials.” Torrie has also self-published some earlier images into a book, entitled Therapy Thru a Lens, and hopes to publish a new book resulting from her Bugs exhibition. Bugs is on view now to March 15 at Kalamalka Vertigo, located next to the main lecture theatre at the Kalamalka campus of Okanagan College. The gallery is open to the public during regular school hours.
Vernon artist chases waves in their many forms Morning Star Staff
Vernon-raised artist Katie Brennan has been making waves ever since she picked up a paint brush. Currently the curator at the Lake Country Art Gallery, and the founder of the new online arts and culture magazine, oook.ca, Brennan continues to immerse herself deep in the trenches of the Okanagan arts scene. Next week she will be the focus of attention when her solo exhibition, aptly titled Chasing Waves, opens at Vernon’s Headbones Gallery. “Brennan’s social outreach is an extension of her work,” said Headbones co-owner and founder Julie Oakes. “She generates a broad swath of positive influence so that we are disarmed to move towards a positive engagement. She moves mountains and increases the flow.” After graduating from Kalamalka
Secondary School, Brennan pursued her studies at what was then Okanagan University College, and completed her bachelor of fine arts degree at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Completing internships at both the Helen Pitt and Vancouver art galleries, she went on to get her masters in fine art at the University of Guelph. Returning to the Okanagan in 2009, Brennan was a sessional lecturer, instructing drawing and painting at UBC Okanagan while setting into motion a list serve that would become oook.ca. The online publication now gets from 400 visitors a week, and has extensive listings covering the valley. Brennan also fulfilled a selfdirected residency at the Banff School of Fine Arts in 2011, where Kitty Scott, once the curator of The National Gallery of Canada, was the director.
striped monochromatic works laid the ground for a new series that first appeared while Brennan was completing her artist residency in Banff. Challenged by the grandeur of the surrounding landscape, Brennan’s head turned from materialistic subjects to nature, said Oakes. “Sounds of the mountain streams were pervasive and seeped into her work. The stripes became water runnels, currents and effervescent bubbles. She completed a wall of water drawings that mysteriously related one to the other as if PHOTO SUBMITTED they were all en route to the sea.” Vernon’s Katie Brennan is showing Besides Brennan’s water-based her water-based work in Chasing work, Headbones will also show Waves at Headbones Gallery. watercolours and ink drawings Her work was the subject of an by Ontario-based artist Lorne introductory exhibition previewed Wagman in its Drawers Gallery. The work will show the ragged, in Headbones’ Drawers Gallery in October, with large paper pieces bushy, overgrown and blousy based on corporate car logos. The side of nature in contrast with
Brennan’s architectonic handling, said Oakes. “Wagman looks closely and recognizes every weed, lichen or stone with consideration,” she said. “He lives near Tom Thompson’s birthplace of Owen Sound and it is as if the spirit of the famous painter inhabits his personal aura. “Wagman’s lush canvases are deservedly recognized by Ontario’s art elite as authentic and inspired, yet his practice is down to earth and connected to the flora with a near intimate proximity. Wagman breathes nature.” Both exhibitions open Tuesday and continue to March 17. Regular hours are Tuesday to Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. An artist’s reception takes place Feb. 17 at Headbones, 6700, Old Kamloops Road, between 6 and 9 p.m. Musician Dale Ziech will perform with his 3 Men 1 Accordion.

Tankful of Blues blow through town Sherman Doucette returns to jazz club with opening set by talented youth DVOIRA YANOVSKY Vernon Jazz Society
Beat the February chill when electrifying master bluesman of the harmonica Sherman “Tank” Doucette and his Tankful of Blues heats up the stage at the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. Tankful of Blues terrific lineup includes Cole Leaver on guitar, Grant Jones on bass, and John Modder on the drums. Doucette brings his usual high energy “blues on fire” style to the fans. “Mostly we like to keep it cooking but we do add a few ballads midstream to cool things down a little,” said Doucette. But don’t expect to relax too much. “I purposely try to change the feels – rumba, shuffle, swing, funky soul, slow blues – so the audience and the band don’t get bored,” explained Doucette. Doucette – but not fans – was shocked by his 2011 win as Best Local Musician/Music Group by Okanagan Life Magazine. “I’m blown away because I never put my name in the hat; they just picked me. When you hear that, you sort of expect a person to be able to read and write music – I just know how to make people feel good,” said Doucette. Since their last visit, Doucette and the band has opened for Eric Burdon, John Mayall, Johnny Winter, and the Downchild Blues Band’s 40th anniversary. They also performed at the 2011 Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival. Born into a musical family in North Battleford, Sask., Doucette has been playing music since he

Inspired, Doucette eventually developed his own particular brand of playing, greatly influenced by the late great Paul Butterfield. He began performing in a variety of local blues and rock bands. In 1977, Doucette survived a massive explosion in a lumber mill that left him with burns to more than 50 per cent of his body. His determination to recover earned him his nickname “Tank.” Three years later, Doucette formed his first blues band, Incognito. The band was at the

forefront of the Vancouver music scene, recording three independent CDs and touring extensively across Canada. A talented composer, Doucette’s recent CD, Blowin’ Through Town, features his original compositions. “My ideas for songs come mostly in 3D. I kind of get the song all at once, out of the blue: first the title, then the feel, and then the key. The lyrics come from my own experiences, mostly the fun ones,” laughed Doucette. Opening for Doucette at 7:15 p.m. is Brandon Schmor, a 16-year-old singer-songwriter and boogie-woogie piano player extraordinaire. The Vernon teen, who last year placed third in the local Our Kids Have Talent competition, is returning to the jazz club after wowing the audience on New Year’s Eve when he opened for Kath and the TomKats. Doucette and his Tankful of Blues take the stage Saturday at 8 p.m. The Vernon Jazz Club is located at 3000-31st St. above Nolan’s Pharmasave, downtown. Tickets are $20 ($15 for jazz society members), available at the Bean Scene and Bean to Cup coffee houses.

Summers on her aunt’s Quebec farm gave Jocelyne Sewell her first taste of gardening. “We lived in Quebec City and my family didn’t garden so I think that’s where I got my love of gardening,” she said. It was years until she had her own garden. She came to British Columbia and worked as a cook on a Canadian Coast Guard weather ship 500 miles off the coast of Victoria and would be at sea for seven weeks at a time. She met her husband, Tom, who also worked on the ship, and in 1982 they settled on Vancouver Island. “A friend gave me some organic gardening books to read and I decided to have a garden. It looked like it was very easy,” she said with a smile. “My first garden I had more weeds than anything else.” The couple bought two acres in Mill Bay in 1983 and decided to build and garden on it. The land was basically rocks with a few trees. Sewell rethought easy but she was determined to have an organic garden. “We used the rocks for pathways and the trees that had to be cut down for raised beds. Tom built everything we needed, from the compost boxes to cold frames to a deer fence,” she said. They raised lambs, chickens, rabbits, ducks and pheasants, some fruit trees and lots of vegetables. It wasn’t long before the produce was winning awards at local fairs. In 1989, the garden was featured in Organic Gardening magazine. In 1991, Tom, who had kept working as a shipwright, took early retirement so they could travel and they later bought land in the Kootenays and started another garden from scratch. The Sewells moved to Vernon in 2005 looking for a place with a smaller garden and found it on the sunny slopes of Bella Vista. “I started all over. There were just a few roses, one little rhubarb plant and some

Jocelyne Sewell works in her Vernon garden with her dog Leelah at her side. overgrown junipers,” said Sewell. “We re-used the rocks and Tom built what I wanted. I plant my garden and a garden for my neighbour. I always plant extra for the food bank.” The garden has raised beds, grapes she started from cuttings, self-planted elderberry and Saskatoon bushes and high bush cranberries. Sewell starts all her own plants and sells some at the Lumby Farmers’ Market. There was still lettuce in the cold frame in early January. Water is caught in rain barrels and used only as needed, with hand watering making the most of the resource. Sewell grows most of the couple’s food with two freezers full of produce, including the bounty of 99 tomato plants last year. “My garden keeps growing each year as the beds take over the lawn,” she said, picking a weed that was daring to show itself. “I love everything that goes with gardening, even the weeding and pruning. I just love plants and I always try new or unusual varieties to see what they will do.
I see some buds on the bushes and the plants now. That’s not good. It’s too early. The garden should be sleeping now.” Sewell is up and gardening early on summer mornings before it’s too hot to garden. “We sit and relax and enjoy the garden in the afternoon,” she said.

Editor’s note: The Morning Star welcomes its newest columnist, Jocelyne Sewell, who will write A Gardener’s Diary every other Wednesday. Sewell is a member of Okanagan Gardens and Roses Club. hen I was asked if I wanted to write the column about gardening, I was very hesitant. Fred Lyall had been doing it for so long and as a Master Gardener, I can assure you that his knowledge of plants Jocelyne Sewell is a lot more than mine. However, I will try to do my best. I still remember the large garden at my uncle’s farm where I used to spend the summer holidays. I grew up in Quebec City and when you opened the
A GARDENER’S DIARY
front door, you were on the sidewalk on the Trans-Canada Highway or the old number-one. Not much room for a garden there, but dandelions and thistles still managed to have their days. In the early ‘80s, a friend had a collection of Organic Gardening magazines. I started to read them and in no time I was dreaming of having my own garden. By then I was living on Vancouver Island where you can, sometimes, plant your peas in February and some of your greens will overwinter with no problems. My first real garden was in 1982, with lettuce, radishes, green onions and tomato plants. I had about six rows in my little garden and a whole pack of carrot seeds was planted in a row about three feet long. Most of the seedlings came up and also a lot of other little green things. Could they be weeds? By the time I could make the difference, it was too late. By that time I also
found out that we had tons of leatherjackets and worms, and I was told by Agriculture Canada to use diazinon to fix the problem. The next day I found out that it worked very well but what I found very disturbing was that it had also killed many other beneficial plants and my good worms. That was the first and last time that I ever used pesticides or other non-organic sprays in any of my gardens. Over the years I had many trials and errors. Keeping a diary of your garden helps in avoiding the same mistakes sometimes. Also it is good to remember where you plant everything for crop rotation. I love all kinds of plants but I could not only have flowers. There is nothing more satisfying than going in your garden for fresh vegetables and salad greens. Knowing you have grown them yourself organically is good for the body and the soul.

My daughter was at university and during one of my visits she asked for a cooking lesson: Lasagne 101. She hoped to make and freeze portions for future meals. I was surprised at the request because I had thought she had learned to cook by watching me and helping to prepare meals when she was younger. When I remarked on this, she told me she often did not feel comfortable cooking with me when she was younger. She said, “Mom, I could always tell you were impatient with how I chopped or prepared something if it was not the way you would do it. It was easier just to let you do it.”
Ponies at the library The Vernon library is welcoming kids seven years old and up to special programs every Saturday. Feb. 18 it’s Pony Party. Pin the tail on the pony, make a pony craft and show off your My Little Pony collection. The fun takes place at 1 p.m. There’s no charge, but you must pre-register at the branch or by calling 250-542-7610, ext. 1309.
I thought about her comment, and she was right. Once I got home from work, I was so focused on getting a nutritious and quick meal on the table in 30 minutes that I took some of the fun out of learning to cook and nurturing those life skills so necessary later in life. A child, even as young as two, can help with meal preparation. They can scrub and clean vegetables, tear pieces of lettuce, or break pieces of bread for stuffing. Remember to teach them to wash their hands before starting to work with food. A three-year-old can help wrap up a sandwich, pour wet ingredients into a bowl, or mix batter. The experience and praise will give them
confidence to do more as they get older. Do not worry about being neat and tidy. Being neater and tidier during food preparation will come with practice. Peeling, rolling and mashing are within a four-year-old’s skill. Good quality peelers that peel in both directions often help make things easier. Putting toppings on a home made pizza, or into a casserole is a great way to introduce them to new foods. Try using a step stool to reach the table or countertop in order to make these jobs easier for them. By five years old, kids can measure and even cut food with supervision. Soft bananas or cucumbers are easy to hold and slice. Many utensils are made for

kids’ small hands. Look for kid-friendly cook books for meal ideas that are simple and fast. Meal preparation is not the only place kids can help. They can help with setting or clearing the table and choosing fruit, vegetables, or whole grain breads while grocery shopping. It’s important to accept that cooking with kids means things will take longer, preparation may be messier but the look of accomplishment

ll the fog we’ve been experiencing down Westside recently has dampened my spirits somewhat. In fact, I don’t even want to go outside into it, fearing the impossibility that I could evaporate into the netherland of its uncertainty. That’s what fogginess can do to some brains, put me into a state of fogginess and heavy sighing for spring. I was watching ice fishermen on the Cathi Litzenberger lake and it inspired me to try some different fish recipes, in the bright lights of my kitchen I might add. The first is a good light recipe for lingcod fillets. These not only look good, they are tasty and easy to prepare. The second recipe is a perfect idea for a quick lunch. It’s colourful and bubbly and is perfect served with a small tossed salad and a cup of tea (or beverage of your choice). Both recipes are great for a quick meal during the Winter Carnival.

News Internet researcher targets climate Morning Star Staff
A Vernon lecture looks at greening the information age. Bill St. Arnaud, former chief research officer for Canada’s Advanced Internet Development Organization, will speak Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Okanagan College’s Kalamalka campus. “Information and communication technology has become the heavy industry of the information age,” said St. Arnaud. “We need to find alternate solutions that enable ICT to become zero carbon immediately.” St. Arnaud is now a green IT networking consultant who works with clients on the application of technology to research, education and
Internet networks. He also works with clients to develop solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. “We must now focus on how to adapt to a much warmer planet,” he said. Energy efficiency is not enough. We don’t have enough time to reduce emissions of ICT through energy efficiency. Building zero carbon networks, data centres and computers will be our major task in the coming years.” The Science in Society Speaker Series is a joint project of the Okanagan Science Centre and Okanagan College. Admission is $5 in advance or $7 at the door. For advanced tickets and information, go to www.okscience.ca or call 250-545-3644.

Mustangs charge for Coca-Cola title KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor
They rode in the Winter Carnival Parade on a truck customized with a smoke machine Saturday. On Sunday, they stopped the Kamloops Tier 2 Blazers 4-2 in an exhibition game. Now comes the real fun and games as the Watkin Motors Mustangs open the prestigious 41st Coca-Cola Classic Pee Wee Invitational Thursday at 8 a.m. against the Vancouver Thunderbirds. A total of eight teams are in the hockey extravaganza which includes alumni like Ray Whitney, Daymond Langkow, Brent Gilchrist and Doug Bodger. In other Thursday games at Civic Arena, the Spokane Jr. Chiefs meet the Edmonton NWZ Raiders at 10:15 a.m., the Bow Valley Flames of Calgary face the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies at 12:30 p.m., the South Delta Storm battle the Seattle Sno Kings at 2:45, the Mustangs take on Spokane at 6 p.m. and Edmonton plays Vancouver at 8 p.m. “We’re definitely anxious and excited and a little nervous,” said classy 12-year-old Mustang captain Reed Cashato, who scored once Sunday in Kamloops. “Our overall goal is to win the tournament. When we skate hard and hit, we play our best games.” Forward Matt Kowalski, an alternate captain, was sick and missed the tournament opener last year. He’s ready to go this

to skate on his backyard rink: “We use our speed and we hit. We don’t score a lot, but when we do get a chance, we try really hard to bury them. If there’s a rebound, we go hard to the net.”

Seaton Sonics’ Besim Maliqi looks for an opening while being defended by Daniel Adimora of the R.E Mountain Eagles in senior boys basketball tournament play Saturday at Kalamalka Secondary.
Tired of watching other teams hoist tournament title trophies, the D.W. Poppy Red Hawks finally got to celebrate Saturday night, stopping the R.E. Mountain Eagles 66-64 in an all-Langley final of the Kalamalka Lakers Rock the Rim Tournament. Tourney MVP Josh Uponrefe drained 20 points and Adrienne Schuerhaus added 16 as the Red Hawks won the eight-team senior boys basketball affair. Schuerhaus was chosen Top Defender. All-star Peter Chung sank 22 points for the Eagles. Poppy had finished second in three previous tournaments. Devin Stone snagged 24 points and Uponrefe brought down 23 as the Red Hawks upended the A.L. Fortune Falcons of Enderby 72-52 in semifinal play. All-star Luke Tomkins pocketed 27 points for Fortune. Mountain brushed back the Seaton Sonics 69-62 in the other semi. Shehryaar Sehgal rung up 35 points for Mountain, while Besim Maliqi and Chris McEachranLaw each netted 21 points for Seaton. “The best way to describe the first Kal Rock the Rim Tourney was parity and excitement,” said Kal coach Rick Serafin.
“In a total of 12 games,10 were decided by five or six points, or less. All four final games were decided by six points or less.” It was a real positive weekend for Kal basketball as the junior and senior teams combined to put together a solid senior team and organize a senior tournament for the first time in years. “It was a real positive addition which will only help Kal continue to build up their boys program,” said Serafin. “I’m proud of not only the development of all my seniors and Grade 11s, but the leadership and commitment they’ve shown to helping the younger players in Grade 9 and 10.” Tomkins flushed 27 points as the Falcons outlasted Seaton 76-71 for third spot. Joel Castle nailed 17 points for Fortune, while McEachran-Law scored 21 for Seaton. Wyatt Fassbender of Fortune and Joe Davis of Westsyde rounded out the all-star selections. The Lakers beat the Westsyde Whundas of Kamloops 57-53 for seventh place, getting 15 points from guard Steven Goebel and 10 points apiece from all-star guard Max Wilford and Paul Major. Earlier Saturday, the Lakers lost 69-55 to the Rutland Voodoos. Wilford counted 18
points and Major 15. In Monday night league play, PVSS defeated the Lakers 72-67 with Tian Hannah nailing 22 points, all from the low post, and Matt Sutherland dropping 19 from the outside for the Saints. Kal was powered by Wilford with 20 points and Goebel with 14. Ever-improving Grade 11 Nathan Christiansen scored 14 points from the perimeter and post. Junior Chris Gallant pocketed three treys and finished with 11 points. Meanwhile, the Fulton Maroons went 2-2 at the Sa-Hali Sabres Senior Boys Invitational in Kamloops, losing 65-57 Saturday to the South Okanagan Hornets. Mitch Rouault collected 21 points and eight assists for Fulton, while Steve Porcaro had 16 points and eight rebounds. The Maroons opened by storming the Valleyview Vikings of Kamloops 63-45. High scorers were Rouault, with 18 points and eight assists, and Dustin Popoff, with20 points and nine rebounds. The Maroons then upended the L.V. Rogers Bombers of Nelson 53-47 behind 24 points from Rouault. Popoff chipped in with 15 points and Porcaro had 11.

Coke crew bounces SilverTips in Round 1 Continued from A24 Roadrunner Austin Caldwell, 12, says the Mustangs will play to their strengths facing bigger teams than them. “When we’re passing the puck really well and skating and hitting, we have success,” said Caldwell. Meanwhile, the Coca-Cola Tier 2 Midget Vipers swept the heavily favoured Salmon Arm SilverTips 4-3 and 2-1 in the first round of the playoffs. The 1-15-2 Vipers opened the scoring in Game 1 at the Shaw Centre with a shot by Jacob Dolinar, assisted by Carson Tucker. The Vipers added a powerplay goal by Chad Thomas, assisted by Taylor Hamilton-Gee and Brad Jones. The 10-3-5 SilverTips responded early in the second, but the Snakes caught a break when Thomas took a pass from Matt Halvorson and put the puck on net. The goalie made the stop, but Dolinar collected the rebound and, looking to make the pass, banked the puck in off the goalie. Salmon Arm tied it with about seven minutes to go, but the Vipers countered just 40 seconds later when Halvorson took a pass from Griffen Fried and, catching the SilverTips off guard, finished with a rocket to the top corner. Jayden Campbell got the win with another stellar performance in net. In Game 2 Sunday at Civic, the Vipers had their best game of the season, despite allowing the SilverTips a powerplay goal just two minutes into the game. “The SilverTips’ strategy to try and neutralize the key players on the Vipers meant that they underestimated the skills and determination of the other players on the team,” said Vernon coach Rob Spraggs. “They paid dearly for that oversight.” Jaydon Agar equalized on a pass from Thomas, and struck again a minute later, burying a rebound after a shot by Tucker, who was fed by Thomas. The rest of the game was a chess match with the two team exchanging chances, but Vernon held on in front of a superb Bruin Stair. “Every single player on this team worked so hard to get to this point,” said Spraggs. “The skills they honed at the OTR during the year allowed the coaching staff to establish an aggressive game-plan to neutralize the potent Salmon Arm offence. It’s emotionally hard on the players to go through a season with as few wins as we have had this year, but I credit my coaches (Mike Burke and Scott Flood) for keeping everything positive and focused with the players.” In Midget Tier 1 action, the Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers earned a 3-3 tie with the Okanagan Hockey Academy in Penticton Sunday afternoon. The fast-paced tilt was scoreless for 20 minutes before the teams exchanged a pair of goals in the middle frame.

Vipers push win streak to three KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor
Count the Vernon Vipers among those hoping the Penticton Vees keep winning and breaking records in the B.C. Hockey League. You see, the more the Vees beat teams like the Chilliwack Chiefs and Prince George Spruce Kings, the better the Vipers’ playoff picture looks. The Vipers entertained the Interior Conference last-place Trail Smoke Eaters Tuesday night, fully expecting the Vees to defeat host Chilliwack and set a record with their 30th straight victory on the same night. The Smokies upset Chilliwack 5-3 Saturday night. If the Vipers and Vees both won, Vernon would have woke up this morning tied with Chilliwack in the fourth and final playoff spot, three points back of Prince George. The Chiefs play the 41-3-0-2 Vees once more in Penticton, while Prince George has the Vees three times, including a season-ending twinbill up north on the final weekend. Vernon gets Penticton once, a road date Friday, Feb. 17. The Vipers (23-20-1-2) face a tough two-game road swing to Powell River and Cowichan Valley at the end of February, but end March with a homeand-home series with the free-falling Salmon Arm SilverBacks. Mike Zalewski has pretty much
ignited the Vipers’ three-game win streak, scoring gigantic goals 10 days ago in Prince George to jumpstart the injury-riddled team’s fragile mind-set. The 19-year-old power winger out of New York was in prime-time mode again Saturday night, scoring goals 1:50 apart in the third period as the Vipers held off the stubborn and shortstaffed Alberni Valley Bulldogs 5-2. “I think last weekend’s win in Prince George really turned things around for us,” said Zalewski, who hasn’t lost a step without clutch linemate Darren Nowick on injured reserve. “We only got one point over them in that game, but for the team morale, it was huge.” Zalewski, who hit the 30-goal mark with a pair of beauties, earned first star ahead of linemate Adam Tambellini (1+2) and Alberni Valley defenceman Walker Hyland, who put the Dawgs up 1-0 after one period on a powerplay point shot. Alberni captain Trent Dorais, a Vernon product, and exViper, drew the secondary assist. “I think we kind of underestimated them and we came out with a pretty sloppy effort in the first,” said Zalewski, who went roof daddy from in tight for the winner, on a great feed by Johnny Knisley, and showed cool patience on his insurance tally. “We didn’t really expect them to come out that hard which is bad on our part, but we battled back really

They had 10 rookies in their lineup before 1,600 fans at the Wesbild Centre. Ben Gamache banked a shot from the sidewall off Alberni winger Tryg Strand to even the score 95 seconds into the second period. Tambellini fooled goalie Max Fenkell from the high slot five seconds into a high sticking penalty to Hyland.
Hunter Stewart tipped a shot by Marlon Sabo past Kirby Halcrow during a powerplay late in the second. “We had something to prove tonight and we came out with a mind-set of outworking them, being physical and keeping it simple,” said Dorais, the Dawgs’ 20-year-old captain in his final BCHL game in his home rink before playing at SAIT next year. “It worked for the most part, but fatigue kicked in, in the end there.” Tambellini fed Aaron Hadley for an empty-netter with 14 seconds remaining.

Emma Lochhead pulled the hat trick as the Vernon North Enderby Timber Flames topped host West Kelowna 7-5 in Novice ringette Sunday at Jim Lind Arena. Julie Francis added two goals, with Georgia Lannon and Amy Demetrick each adding a single. Assists came from Lannon, Levi Knopf and Ashly Shwaluk. Katie Finlayson played strong on defence in front of netminder Kaila Summerfelt. In other Sunday action at Jim Lind, Alana Fox collected two goals and an assist as the Sunshine Auto Graphics Swag doubled West Kelowna 6-3 in a Junior B showdown. Brenna Beck and Sydney Harder each had a goal and assist, and Liv Percy notched a single to complete the Vernon attack. Despite three-goal efforts from Abby Williamson and Makayla Vanderzwan, the Advertising Works Thundercats bowed 8-7 to Salmon Arm in Petite play Saturday at Priest Valley Arena. Maddy Fox added a goal and assist, and Chelsea McNabb chipped in with two helpers for the Thundercats.

Deuces by Jayden Scott and Grace Cornell, and singles by Kenzie Koshure, Daine Thoma, Logan Thoma, Liam Van Wyk, Hannah McMorran, Emma Roine and Jessie Campbell rounded out Vernon’s offence The Vernon Newalta Rush handed host Kelowna Fusion a 6-1 Tween A loss Sunday at the Capital News Centre. The Rush got on the board at the 12-minute mark when Saige Woodliffe popped in a goal, assisted by Kendra Ostafie. Shortly after, Amy Parsons took a dish from Hannah Popilchak to make it 2-0. Shelby Connors then scored twice in just over a minute, with assists from Woodliffe and Ostafie. Connors, battling out from the corner, put a fabulous pass onto Woodliffe’s stick for her second goal of the game. Tenacious back checking by captain Maddie Powls allowed the Rush to stay on offence for much of the first period. Early in the second period, Parsons set up Woodliffe for her hat trick goal. Garrett Adams was stingy in Vernon’s net, supported by his defenders Alex Drury, Maddy Percy, Katelyn Paulin and Saylor Martian.
Marshall storms Quebec Morning Star Staff
Alysson Marshall is the Haywood NorAm Eastern Canadian Nordic Ski Champion. The Salmon Arm native, who trains with the Larch Hills and Sovereign Lake/Silver Star race teams, finished with the three-day pursuit event in Cantley, Que. with a 29.2-second lead over runner-up Emily Nishikawa of Whitehorse. Marshall opened the weekend by taking the 1.4-km classic sprint, and followed that with silver in the 10-km interval start skate event. Nishikawa won the stage by 7.8 seconds. In the 15-km classic pursuit on Sunday, Marshall was first out of the gate in the third stage, with Nishikawa right behind her, setting up a gruelling battling for the crown. The two traded the lead several times, drafting
off each other over the first two laps. In the third lap, Nishikawa clipped the back of Marshall’s skis and fell on a steep corner. Marshall could have cruised to the finish, but instead she recorded a 15 minute, 7.6 second lap time, 21 seconds faster than any other lap time on the day. Despite this, Marshall missed the overall fastest time in the individual stage by just 0.3 seconds, finishing runner-up to Brittany Webster. Sovereign’s Heather Mehain claimed bronze in the women’s Under 23 category, and ninth overall in Cantley. Mehain was fifth overall in the skate sprint, 11th in the 10-km classic and 10th in the 15-km classic. In men’s action in Cantley, Sovereign’s Matt Wylie finished 12th overall.
Any chance at home-ice advantage pretty much went out the window last weekend for the North Okanagan Knights. With just five regular-season Kootenay International Junior Hockey League games to go, the Knights, third in the Okanagan Shuwap’s Doug Birks Division at 31-15-0-1, trail the second-place Kamloops Storm (32-9-1-5) by seven points. As the standings are now, the first-place Revelstoke Grizzlies (34-10-0-3) would host the fourth-place Sicamous Eagles (17-26-1-1) in a best-of-seven series, and the Storm would have home ice against the Knights. After getting pounded 8-0 by the Kimberley Dynamiters Saturday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre, the Knights fell 5-3 at home to the Grizz in a Sunday matinee. “It’s up there with our all-time two worst games of the year,” said Knights’ assistant coach Shawn Webb, of the shutout loss. “But I’m still confident with our guys going into playoffs. They’re still doing enough good things in any given game, they just need to do it for a full 60 minutes.” Richard Hubscher scored in the opening minute for the Dynamiters (32-13-1-1), who added a powerplay tally by Tyson Valette later in the first period to go up 2-0 at the break. Kimberley withstood some sustained pressure by the Knights early in the second frame before racking up five more goals, including twice on a fiveminute man advantage, to put the game out of reach. Hubscher finished with 1+4, while 6-foot-4, 205pound Fruitvale product Rylan Duley added 2+2. Against the Grizzlies, North Okanagan trailed 3-1 after one period, and 5-2 after two. Normally a team capable of third-period heroics, the Knights were

Eric Chore (19th), working a give-and-go set piece with Burns and Cory Hochhausen, scored in the second, and Brett Hawrys, showing good patience with a top-shelf backhander from the slot, had the lone third-period goal. The Grizz got a deuce from Jordan Bledsoe and singles from Andrew Standish, Lucas Hildebrand and Vernon’s Michael Roberts, who added an assist. Vernon’s Riley Spraggs pocketed two assists, Cole Sanford had one and netminder Conrad McMillan recorded 20 stops for the win.

Make the resolution to save time and money
Bridge by Phillip Alder K E E P CONCENTRATING ON THE DEAL AT HAND William Feather, a publisher and author who died in 1981, said, “Concentrate on your job and you will forget your other troubles.” Concentrate on your bridge and you will forget your other troubles. But you may easily be distracted, especially in the card play, if you fear you have done something wrong during the auction. This deal provides an example. Look at the East hand. With EastWest vulnerable, South deals and opens one heart, West makes a weak jump overcall of two spades, and North leaps to four no-trump, Blackwood. What would you do?
At the table, East passed, South rebid ﬁve hearts (two aces), and North raised to six hearts, which was passed out. West led the spade ace. What should East have discarded? North’s use of Blackwood with no aces and a void was debatable, but he hoped that if South had only two aces, neither would be the diamond ace. East had a tough decision over four notrump. If West would have read ﬁve no-trump as showing two long minors, that would have been sensible. Alternatively, East could have overcalled ﬁve diamonds, planning to show his clubs next. Here, though, seven of either minor would have gone
down three (minus 800 after South doubles), and six hearts can be defeated. What is West going to do at trick two? He will lead a second spade for East to ruff, never guessing that East has two voids. But East knows that he cannot ruff. He must not lose concentration; he must discard the club ace.

Fulsebakke (Davenport), Patricia Beatrice
July 7, 1949 - Jan. 31, 2012 We regret to announce the passing of our mother Patricia, her vibrant personality and the love she showed for her family will be remembered and missed by all. Patricia passed away peacefully on Jan. 31, 2012 at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital. She was predeceased by her husband, Al Fulsebakke. She is survived by her children Darian (Yvonne) Clark of Lumby, Chris (Karen) Clark of Vernon, Alvin Fulsebakke of Vernon, Xanthia (Charles) Fulsebakke of Cherryville, her older brother Peter (Judy) Davenport of Lavington and her younger brother Les (Val) Davenport of Kelowna. She also left behind four grandchildren, Sarah Clark, Jacob Tench, Zandrea Tench and Kyairia Dean-Ramsey. Patricia was born in Liverpool, England and came to Canada with her family when she was 5. She attended college in Cranbrook where she studied to become a Practical Nurse, then moved to the Okanagan where she lovingly raised four children as a single mom. Her warmth, kindness, sense of humour and strong faith helped her through many difďŹ cult times during her life. Everyone who knew Patricia appreciated her. She will be deeply missed. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Funeral Services will be held at Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services on Friday, Feb. 10, 2012 at 1pm.
