Norman needs a new home JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

A tough financial situation is forcing a beloved O’Keefe Ranch attraction out of a home. Despite being one of the most popular animals at the ranch, Norman the Jersey bull can no longer be looked after by the ranch. “It’s not something that we wanted to do,” said Marilyn Berglund, Historic O’Keefe Ranch interim manager. “We love Norman.” Cost is the cause, as the ranch is trying to be more fiscally responsible due to recent financial restraints. “Norman costs us upwards of $1,000 a year and we have to consider those things,” said Berglund. But news that Norman will no longer have a home at the ranch, effective Feb. 29, nearly broke Chris and Brian Breitkreitz hearts. The Salmon Arm couple, who are the original owners of Norman, are appealing to the public in hopes of finding a new space for the pet bull. Another petting zoo type space would be ideal, as

Norman isn’t your average bull. “He’s a very social animal, he doesn’t think he’s a cow,” said Brian of the bull that acts more like a dog or person. Norman has always been special, recalls Chris, who brought the bull home from the Armstrong auction nine years ago, buckled in the backseat of her car. “I still remember that day, he walked over to me and starting licking my hand,” said Chris, who couldn’t resist those big brown Jersey eyes. While Brian admits he wasn’t keen on Chris bringing home yet another animal from the auction, he quickly grew to love Norman. “He turned out to be like a dog, he’d follow you around the yard and she’d take him for walks down the road with a rope around his neck (for a leash). “I didn’t spend a day in five years without talking to him.” So it was a tough decision when the Breitkreitz’ moved a few years later and had to find a new home for Norman. But there wasn’t a better place for him than the ranch. He loved the attention,

A new home is being sought for the popular Jersey bull. all the kids and visitors, and Nellie (some may recall his sweetheart Nellie the cow, as the two were inseparable, unfortunately she has since passed). “He was probably the most photographed cow in Canada,” said Chris, as Norman never shyed away from the lens of a

visitor’s camera. The decision to get rid of Norman has left the Breitkreitz’ a little disheartened. “Everyone’s told us that he’s the most popular animal there so why get rid of him?” questions Brian, adding that they don’t want to see him go

somewhere he will be slaughtered. But as Berglund points out it is a matter of costs, nothing against the characteristic bull. Instead of looking after animals year-round, the ranch is hoping to board animals during the summer, working with area farms.

So with Norman leaving the ranch in less than two weeks, the Breitkreitz’ are eager to find a new home for him – preferably one in a social atmosphere such as a petting zoo. Anyone interested can contact Chris or Brian at 250832-3855.

Sudden return of winter catches region off-guard Morning Star Staff

A blast of winter created significant challenges for North Okanagan motorists Thursday. Numerous accidents were reported as snow blanketed most of the region throughout the day. “Conditions were extremely slippery” said Cst. Kris Clark, RCMP spokesperson. The most dramatic situation occurred just after 7 a.m. when six vehicles collided at Crystal Waters Road and Highway 97, just north of Oyama. Several people were taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. “Speed, weather and road conditions are all considered to be major factors in this collision,” said Clark. The investigation is ongoing but Clark says Motor Vehicle Act charges are likely forthcoming against at least one driver.

Emergency personnel respond to a six-vehicle accident at Crystal Waters Road and Highway 97 in Oyama Thursday morning. The accident forced the closure of Highway 97 at one point, and then one lane was opened before all four lanes were fully reopened by 10:30 a.m. “The Lake Country RCMP would like to remind people that winter driving is in effect,”

said Clark. “Please slow down for the conditions and ensure that you have appropriate tires for the weather.” Elsewhere in the North Okanagan, road conditions were being blamed for a myriad of

Thursday morning accidents. One woman was taken to hospital suffering from injuries in a rollover accident, and from when her airbag deployed, after her Chevy Cavalier left Highway 97A near Larkin Cross road in Spallumcheen. The northbound vehicle slid off the road right, struck two culverts and rolled down the embankment, landing on its wheels. There were minor injuries after three vehicles collided near Bailey Road on Highway 97, south of Vernon, and a driver was suffering from whiplash after a vehicle lost control and went off Dure Meadow Road east of Lumby. “People seemed to have been caught offguard by the new winter snow after the roads had been dry for so many days,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. There were also reports of at least three semi trucks jackknifed on Highway 97 on St. Anne’s Hill in Spallumcheen before noon.

Youth issues challenge to officials to demonstrate vision RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A fresh vision is challenging the status quo over public amenities in Greater Vernon. Jade Freeman, 11, told the Regional District of North Okanagan board Wednesday that competing sports and culture interests must come together. “We shouldn’t be thinking about separate needs and separate solutions. We should be thinking about one solution,� said the Grade 6 student. “We don’t just need another building, we need a centre that truly grows. We need a centre that helps us grow.� Currently, there are concepts for a sports complex next to the college, a new museum and art

“We need a centre that helps us grow.� — Jade Freeman gallery, recreational facilities at Kin Race Track and the Kokanee Swim Club — which Freeman belongs to — has suggested a new 50-metre pool. “I think we could combine many of the arts and culture facilities we need with the sports centre,� said Freeman. “We could make use of wall space for displaying art. We could use auditoriums for having musical recitals to support the music

school.� In terms of aquatics, Freeman envisions a facility with space for the public and the swim club. “A water park with fun slides and a wave pool would attract so many people from our regional community who would prefer not to drive all of the way to the H20 (centre in Kelowna),� she said. By pursuing a common facility for all needs, Freeman says it would be cost effective.

“Our whole town needs to find ways to earn money and improve our facilities,� she said. “We could make a place that everyone would want to come to and that would get our community to come together in a healthy way.� RDNO members were impressed with Freeman’s presentation. “She’s thought a level beyond what we’ve thought,� said Patrick Nicol, RDNO chairperson. “She’s saying we have to look at the whole community.� Director Juliette Cunningham was moved by Freeman’s passion. “It’s so inspiring. I agree with so many of her principles,� said Cunningham. “We need people like her to talk to us and remind us that we can

do better.� Director Mike Macnabb believes people like Freeman should be involved when planning facilities. “We do have to think long-term and think about facilities,� he said.

Robbery suspect nabbed Morning Star Staff

One man was arrested following a robbery Wednesday night in downtown Vernon. Just before 10 p.m., the night clerk at the Blue Moon Esso in the 2400 block of 34th Street advised police that a robbery had just occurred. “The female clerk stated that a lone male entered the store, advised it was a robbery, threatened her with a syringe then demanded money from the register,” Gord Molendyk said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

Water rates climb in Greater Vernon RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A proposed water rate hike has become reality. Regional District of North Okanagan directors voted Wednesday to increase Greater Vernon’s domestic water fees 17 per cent in 2012 and 2013 to fund about $4 million a year for capital enhancements. Director Rob Sawatzky admits some people won’t welcome the situation but he says the higher fees are necessary for improvements to the system. “It’s a plan being revisited and revised with expert consultants,” he said. Sawatzky points out, though, that the utility’s Rob Sawatzky financial plan could also create some challenges. “With increased rates, people can decrease their consumption and then there’s less revenue coming in,” he said. Much of the money from the rate hike will go towards separating Duteau Creek agricultural customers from the domestic system because treated water isn’t needed for farm uses. Separation would increase capacity at the treatment plant to meet domestic needs. Greater Vernon commercial water rates will jump 18 per cent in 2012 while those for agricultural users will go up five per cent. Keeping with water, a special committee will be created to look at methods for funding the master water plan.

The man left the premises on foot. He was described as wearing a black leather jacket, white shirt, beige pants, with dark hair and facial stubble. “Our officers responded to the scene and took a look at the video surveillance tapes,” said Molendyk. A short time later, a man matching the description was taken into custody in the parking lot near Staples, on 32nd Street. The 29-year-old man was arrested for robbery.

Countdown begins for B.C. Games Morning Star Staff

The opening ceremonies will kick off the Greater Vernon B.C. Winter Games Thursday at the Wesbild Centre. And organizers have a few tips for the public who plan on attending. “There will be limited seating available at Wesbild Centre and seating will be on a first-come first-serve basis,” said Games communications director Pete McIntyre. “There will also be limited parking, so people should carpool or arrange to park at a different location.” The pre-ceremony show will kick off at 6:15 p.m. while the ceremony begins at 7 p.m. Opening ceremony performers will include The Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastic and Cirque Theatre Company, Accentz Dance Studio, The WLC-Tones Choir (W.L. Seaton Secondary) and

Brandon Schmore (keyboards). Melina Moore and her son, Justin, will perform O Canada. Vernon native Randene Neill, Global B.C. news anchor, will be the master of ceremonies. The song written for the B.C. Winter Games by Vernon’s Andrew Allen, Your Time to Shine, will be featured. There will be a full torch run including many Vernon athletes as part of the Opening Ceremonies, including speed skater Connie Kapak and 17 other

individuals. The torch is expected to arrive in the Wesbild Centre at 8:25 or 8:30 p.m. The person who will light the torch remains a mystery. There will also be a live webcast of the opening ceremony which can be viewed at www.sportscanada.tv. The closing ceremony will be Sunday, Feb. 26, from 1-2:30 p.m. at the Wesbild Centre. ■ The Morning Star is keeping tabs on the B.C. Winter Games through a special tab on our website.

Report gets failing grade

B

.C. teachers may not be issuing report cards during the current job action, but just as spring follows winter, we can always count on the Fraser Institute to tell us how our schools are performing. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation and, closer to home, the Vernon Teachers’ Association, has been critical of the annual Report Card on British Columbia’s Elementary Schools, which bases its findings on data from the annual Foundation Skills Assessment tests administered to students in Grades 4 and 7. Like the teachers’ unions, I fail to see how we can determine how Katherine Mortimer good or lousy a school is based on a test given to kids in two grades on a few subjects. And if a teacher moves from a top-ranked school to one that is ranked low on the scale, does that mean he or she is a sub-par teacher? It doesn’t make any sense. The school I attended in Vancouver from Grade 8 to 12 is consistently ranked by the Fraser Institute in the top-10 of all B.C. schools. But if you look at my marks in my old nemesis, algebra, I received a top mark in Grade 10 and by Grade 11 I was failing the subject, not once but twice. So does this mean my great school was now a crappy school? Fortunately, I never did an FSA test, so who knows? The Ministry of Education didn’t introduce the tests until 2000. According to Peter Cowley, director of school performance studies for the Fraser Institute, “the report card is the only objective, reliable tool that parents have to compare the academic performance of their child’s school over time and to that of other schools in their community. “The Fraser Institute’s school report card is the only source for long-term, provincewide school performance data that helps parents monitor the performance of their child’s school and help educators identify key areas for

AT RANDOM

improvement in their classrooms.” The arrogance of that statement beggars belief, so forgive me for not feeling that without the guidance offered by a right-wing think tank, I’m somehow being kept in the dark about my child’s academic performance. Sorry, but if I want to find out how my child is doing, I’ll talk to her teacher. And I’ll likely find out that if you were to assess a dozen kids out of her class, you’ll find that all of them are performing at different levels. Had the FSA been in place when I was in Grade 4, I guarantee I probably would have failed miserably, as it was one of my worst school years ever, where I was bullied by my teacher throughout the year, and longed for the end of June. I wonder what the publication of a report such as this does for teachers’ morale? In the three years since my daughter started school, I’ve been astonished at the dedication, caring, creativity and skills that I’ve seen in her teachers, not to mention all of the support staff needed to keep a school running smoothly. By all means, teachers should be testing students to see if they comprehend the material. But a test that doesn’t go towards a child’s mark, that costs time and money to administer — particularly in an era of school districts having to work with fewer dollars than ever before — seems foolish at best, and dangerous at worst. The results of the FSA test seem to be a way for some schools to be able to say, “Wow, look at how good we are,” and others, with equally good teachers, and equally bright students, to have their self-esteem squashed simply because the Fraser Institute tells us so. Last year, Bountiful elementary-secondary school — home of B.C’s infamous fundamentalist Mormon polygamous community — earned top-ranking on the list, with a score of 10 out of 10. This is a school that is not able to issue official graduation diplomas to its Grade 12 students because of concerns about its curriculum. If that doesn’t call into question the validity of the Fraser Institute report, I don’t know what does.

The countdown is officially on. There’s just one week until Greater Vernon hosts B.C. for the Winter Games. In case you haven’t noticed, this is a big deal folks. Or so it should be. Thousands of our province’s best young athletes, coaches, proud parents and siblings and support staff will soon converge on our not so little city. These athletes, some of whom hail right from our region, have worked immensely hard to get to this point and we should all be out there cheering them on. But as much as the Games are about, well, games, this is also our time to shine. Just think Vancouver Olympics scaled down a notch or two. As the host city for such a prestigious event, we should proudly be showing off just how great Greater Vernon is. This is the time to boast our great amenities like Silver Star and Sovereign Lake. Feel free to brag up that great little cafe, diner or trendy little shop. In turn, the support received will give, if even temporary, a boost to our region’s economy. But it’s not just about seeing what Greater Vernon has to offer, it’s feeling it. We want all our visitors to remember us fondly, perhaps with the following impression: “People are so friendly in Vernon, and Armstrong is so beautiful, let’s bring the kids back there for summer break. I heard Kalamalka Lake is gorgeous.” So even if you’re not one of the 2,000 people volunteering at the Games, you can still have an impact. Even something as simple as giving someone directions, holding the door or just sending a smile their way is enough to make our visitors feel welcome.

Letter sparks strong response

O

n the morning of February the 12th, I, as were a great many other of your readers, was shocked to read a letter that you printed from V. VanBeelen, reflecting on an article entitled “Contestant Seeks to Inspire”, by Jennifer Smith. In this letter, the author expresses their limited, prejudicial and misguided views of what is or is not a healthy or even a normal lifestyle. The opinions that this person puts forward and further distributed by your paper, I believe, violates Mr. Brian Webb’s human rights, as identified by the Ministry of Attorney General of BC. By printing this incredibly offensive and prejudicial letter, you have completed the three requirements that are necessary as outlined in the government website provided above, to file a complaint of discrimination under the Human Rights Code. 1- An individual has been singled out 2- An individual has been treated differently and poorly because of a personal characteristic 3- The treatment occurred in a public SOME QUESTIONS I have some questions for V. VanBeelen. Do you eat pork or shellfish? Do you wear cotton-poly blend shirts? Ever played football with a traditional pigskin ball? All of these things are clearly prohibited in Leviticus, the section of the Bible where homosexuality is supposedly also prohibited (depending which translation you choose to believe). This same section also permits slave ownership and advocates killing children who swear at their parents. Do you write letters to the editor about other transgressions, such as divorce, contraception, or wives who don't submit to their husbands? Again, all behaviours clearly prohibited in the Bible. You are of course free to interpret these passages however you like. But in choosing to fixate on one while ignoring others, you are transgressing against your own Bible, as you fail to follow its injunction to 'judge not.' In fact, you are using your religion to justify promoting your own personal prejudices. And yes, it is legal in this country to hold whatever beliefs and opin-

place It may have been your opinion and intent that by printing this letter that you were providing a balanced sense of journalism, which a free and democratic society demands and expects. However, there is a great deal of difference between balanced reporting and providing a public forum for those special interest groups that promote misleading opinion as fact and intolerance, while justifying this message in

ions you wish. However, it is not legal to promote hatred through speech or actions. Gladly, I believe we will soon see a society where it is understood that the public expression of opinions such as yours, even when veiled as religious righteousness, contributes to an environment of prejudice, hatred and violence against sexual minorities. It doesn't matter if you are not a bully yourself; some other bully will read your letter and feel justified in their violent actions against others. No newspaper today would print such a letter vilifying people of different races. I strongly urge the editors of this publication to consider their responsibility towards ALL members of this community before printing a letter such as V. VanBeelen's again. Chandra McCann THROW NO STONES Some opinions in The Morning Star are not ‘2012’. We live in a progressive age of adaption. The world is in tragedy; world weather, trauma, friends are losing their homes, and yet some people still choose to negatively focus on

the name of God. For the past 15yrs Gay Vernon also known as NOGLO, has represented the GLBT community right here in the North Okanagan, providing a safe and open setting for its members. The organization has also established strong ties with local business and other like minded organizations, including those of the church where members of our society have been married in public ceremonies.

things that do not affect them directly. V. VanBeelen’s letter to the editor regarding Brian Webb aspiring to Mr. Gay Canada was unnecessary. I appreciate everyone is entitled to opinion, but if it affects no one but you, be silent. I ask V.VanBeelen if he/she asks every professional they deal with what their sexual orientation is. If so, you might find your services in health care, landscaping, accounting, snow removal etc… rather limited. You have no idea who you are surrounded by, and probably for the better. Brian was quoted in his original article by saying “I hope that my nomination will inspire youth in the Okanagan to trust and believe in who they are, build their confidence to follow their dreams and trust that there is an entire community rallying behind them.” He was referring to HIS community of caring and open minded people who appreciate his dedication to being a solid citizen in all respects. He did not ask for support from anyone who does not know him, or respect his aspirations. Or respect his commitment to solid val-

Gay Vernon, strongly promotes those democratic practices of equality and tolerance; supporting education and understanding. It is our hope that your paper, as an equal opportunity employer, also considers GLBT community as part of its circulation base. In closing, I would like to say that, as a society we have outlawed the outdated notions that certain people may ONLY ride at the back of the bus, that only men should have the vote, that woman are property or that government has the right to dictate what happens between consenting adults in the privacy of the bedroom. And as an enlightened society our institutions, the press included, are expected to promote the ‘Greater Good’ of its people and not to isolate and belittle them, creating class differences or ghettos of dissent. Gay Vernon, would very much like to hear from you with respect to the issues raised and to pass those thoughts onto the membership and its affiliated organizations.

ues, good health, and acceptance of opinions like yours for that matter. What is a crime, sadly is someone of ‘ill heart’. A person’s sexuality does not fall into that category. If I were to fall, have a purse stolen, or even need a door opened, Brian would be right by my side, regardless of my presentation…That’s what I wish for this planet. People choose to participate or not. ‘Choice’ being the operative word. So measure yourself up to God’s word: Throw no stones. God loves everyone – can you? Elspeth Manning Dena Sharkey IN RESPONSE In response to the letter titled "No H8." As a long-time, and in fact lifetime, reader of The Morning Star, I was saddened to see that a bigoted message of ignorance and hate was allowed to be published in our paper. It is because of views like these that so many teens across Canada feel that they will never be accepted. Homosexuality is not a "choice," and being in a loving relationship with someone that just happens to

be the same sex as you does not deny you the right to exist. Naomi Knittel

Field conditions draw concern JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Typically in baseball, loaded bases make for a great scoring opportunity. But not when they’re loaded with weeds, instead of runners. That’s the case at some local diamonds in Coldstream, specifically Creekside Park, where weeds have overrun the infields. “It presents some real challenges to our young

ball players,” said Mark Batchelor, president of the Vernon and District Baseball Association. “There’s significant risk for them and they don’t want to slide, there’s fear of tripping.” The problem has progressively gotten worse since the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee, at the request of Coldstream, stopped using herbicides and pesticides within Coldstream in

The infields at the ball diamonds in Creekside Park are overrun with weeds. 2009. While coaches and staff have tried to pitch in by raking the infields themselves, they haven’t been able to keep up with the growth. And if the problem persists, Batchelor fears they won’t be able to play ball in Coldstream. GVAC says it does not have the labour capacity to manually remove weeds nor can it afford to transport machinery around to drag the fields (which is done at the DND diamonds). T h e r e f o r e Coldstream is requesting that GVAC do something to fix the diamonds, and keep the bases free of weeds.

“Right now they just need to get it in usable shape again,” said Coun. Pat Cochrane. “Once they do that, we want to make sure they (VDBA) don’t come back a year or two from now with the same pictures.” In an effort to resolve the problem, the use of chemicals is being debated, just for the infield portion of the diamonds. “If they can find some organic alternative of herbicide they should use it,” said Coun. Gyula Kiss. But according to head gardener Isabel Prystawik, even the organic herbicides are caustic, less effective and more expensive.

The district is also not permitted to use any home-remedy solution which is not registered. Meanwhile, Coun. Maria Besso is against any use of pesticides or herbicides. “I think there are still manual ways to doing this,” said Besso, adding that she has fielded local concerns about kids playing in pesticideladen parks. Coun. Peter McClean notes that whether its weeds in parks or alyssum spreading into hay fields, Coldstream will forever be plagued by nuisance plants. “We are an agricultural community and there are a lot of weeds that fly.”

Thieves target snowmobiles ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Area RCMP are encouraging snowmobile enthusiasts to be vigilant in securing sleds on their vehicles, and consider placing a special piece of equipment inside a vehicle to ensure sled safety. It’s a time of year, say police, that sleds tend to get stolen. “What’s happening,

not as much here though there are some thefts here, but in areas when snowmobile enthusiasts predominantly congregate for a weekend, areas like Sicamous, Revelstoke or Golden,” said VernonNorth Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “We see, just about every weekend, thefts of trucks with as many as five or six sleds as they’re

on the truck or on a trailer. “For convenience, a person will usually strap the machine to their vehicle. Then, individuals come along, back up to the truck and steal the sleds off the truck or off the trailer.” Police encourage sledders to lock their machines with a cable lock to either their truck or to their trailer if they’re towing their machines. As well, they should consider purchasing an immobilizer, an electronic device that shuts down a vehicle’s electrical system if there’s an attempt made to hotwire a vehicle during a theft, or the ignition is damaged. “Immobilizers do cost, you have to install them,” said Molendyk, adding that the devices are available at snowmobile dealerships or auto service centres.

City extends parking numbers RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

There will be a limit on how many vehicles can be parked on a property, but it will be more than originally expected. City of Vernon staff had recommended a limit of four operable and licensable vehicles be allowed outdoors on a residential property. But council has changed that to six because there was a concern residents with trails, RVs and boats would be penalized. “This targets people with multiple vehicles they are using,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe of the original plan. Mary-Jo O’Keefe “This doesn’t address the issue of junk yards.” The bylaw will allow the city to address complaints about the aesthetics of a large number of vehicles being stored in a residential yard. All In The Family The City of Vernon’s family has officially grown. Council has approved a sister city relationship with Anandpur Sahib, India. “We have a significant East Indian community and this highlights the commonality we have,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. Anandpur Sahib, which is in the Punjab

region, shares a common landscape with Vernon, as well as agricultural activities. Vernon currently has five sister cities and the initiative is run by a volunteer committee. Fundraising assists with any exchanges, and those who go on trips cover their own expenses. Financial Reporting Exceptional The City of Vernon has been recognized for financial reporting. The Government Finance Officers Association of the U.S. and Canada has presented an award to Vernon for its 2010 annual financial report. “We believe our current report continues to conform to the Canadian award for financial reporting program requirements, and we are (again) submitting it to GFOA,” said Kevin Bertles, finance manager. In order to earn a Canadian award, a jurisdiction must publish an easKevin Bertles ily readable and efficiently organized annual financial report, whose contents conform to program standards. “This award is a result of a great team effort by several departments, especially the finance department, and underscores the professionalism and dedication of our staff,” said Marg Bailey, interim chief administrative officer.

Greater Vernon is all geared up for the Games. Literally. Each of the City of Vernon’s council members are sporting their new B.C. Winter Games gear in anticipation of the Feb. 23 to 26 event. More than 1,800 young athletes from across B.C. will converge on the region for the Games, ready to show off their talents and love of sport to town. “It’s only a concentrated three or four days so people need to come out,” encourages Vernon Mayor Rob Sawatzky. Catch figure skating at the Priest Valley Arena, speed skating in Armstrong, alpine and freestyle skiing at Silver Star or any one of the 15 sports set to fill local venues. With everything from women’s hockey to netball and archery to gymnastics, there’s a sport for every interest. “It’s a great way to break up the routine of a long, dark winter,” said Sawatzky, who is eager to see the excitement on the faces of competitors as they exercise great physical and mental health. There is obviously a lot of pride among the athletes that have made it to the Games in their respective sport, but Greater Vernon is also beaming as it prepares to host the event. More than 2,000 volunteers have been preparing for and will continue to work behind the scenes to ensure the event goes smoothly. “The volunteer numbers have skyrocketed,” said Sawatzky. “Compared to other hosting places we’ve advanced and are better off in terms of volunteerism. That speaks well to the City of Vernon.” For more information and a list of events visit www.2012bcwintergames.ca.

DOWNTOWN REALTY

drew a smaller number yet more diverse field of 104 skiers from around the globe, aged 24 to 77 years, all squeezing into their lycra speed suits and donning the long skis for the thrill of feeling like one of the Crazy Canucks. This annual event prides itself on safety and fun in an environment where your fellow competitors are more likely to give you pointers on how to go just that little bit faster. The overall winning team this year was The Lazy Canucks Murray Smith, Marty Steele, Brent Ree, and Jen Stew with a combined team time of 4:54:30. In an interesting turn of events the fastest time on the day was shared by former Canadian National Ski Team member Steve Hatch and American Luke Keenan with a time of 1:11:43 and in third place was Murray Smith with a time of 1:11:45. The quickest lady down the track was Leslie Allan-Reed from Abbotsford with a time of 1:15:95, second from Vernon was Francesca Van Soest with a time 1:16:01 and in third Melanie Roberts from Kamloops with a time of 1:16:40

Ringette girls going for B.C. gold KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

It’s a mini Olympics except they sleep on mats in school rooms and eat bag lunches. Dayce Knopf of the Thompson Okanagan Zone 2 female ringette team laughs as she talks about bedroom quarters for the B.C. Winter Games. “I think it will be interesting,” said the Grade 9 VSS student. “We had a mouse in our French class so hopefully we don’t sleep there.” Knopf, a centre, and Vernon teammates Emily Olds, Maddie Powls and Teigan Moore will likely bring flashlights and a mouse trap just in case as the Games open next Thursday night. They will feel more comfortable on the ice since all four are basic rink rats who made the Zone team through tireless work, skill and grit. Moore plays House in Vernon while also skating for the Thompson Okanagan Ringette League (TORL) Junior AA Selects. The 14-year-old centre will skate miles through the triangle at Civic Arena. “The coaches say they like my skating,” said the smiling Moore. “We do hardcore training with the TORL team and we have lots of tough games. We played Calgary and Edmonton and there was a fight.” Said Kelowna’s Wayne Oye, who co-coaches the Zone entry with Ken Pak: “Teigan is a quiet leader with a very good touch around the net who gets her share of goals. She’s a strong two-way centre.” Moore and Knopf battle boys in the Whitecaps soccer academy every week so will be hard to knock off the ring. Oye, who coaches Moore with the TORL team, says there are six players from that group so he expects the Games entry to be close, on and off the ice. Olds, who moved to the North Okanagan from Regina last year, is one of two goalies

on the Zone 2 roster. She also snowboards and plays soccer. “I started out playing dee and then moved to goalie for the excitement,” said Olds, who attends Grade 9 at Pleasant Valley Secondary in Armstrong. “I love the pressure and the fun. It’s a difficult challenge.” Said Oye of Olds: “She’s got a real positive attitude, is a really good team player and is a very strong goalie.” Knopf, who plays Rep soccer and high school volleyball and hoops, will also be counted on for a skate-till-ya-drop showing. “I’m a strong skater,” she said when asked about her top qualities. “I was in the hockey academy last year and Aaron Hoffman (head instructor) made me a better skater. I actually got a new stick and my shot is better, too.” Said Oye of Knopf: “She is a very strong player with very strong offensive skills. She works hard both ways.” Powls, who turned 14 on Feb. 9, is the youngest of the four local products. She gets her wheels from her father, Bob, and older sister, Paige. “I guess I’m good at picking up my passes and I’m pretty fast,” said the Grade 8 VSS student. “I’m more of a playmaker than a goal scorer. We’re fast as a team and we can get the ring.” Powls plays midfield and striker in soccer and setter in volleyball. “She’s got a good shot and is a good team player who is fairly skilled,” said Oye, of Powls. Powls is actually looking forward to grabbing a sleeping bag and hitting a mat. “I’m excited. Each teams gets their own classroom so it should be fun.” The Zone girls face the North West in their opener next Friday (7:30 a.m.), followed by a noon encounter with VancouverSquamish.

Vipers back on playoff bubble after loss in Merritt Morning Star Staff

All the equipment and players made it on the bus to Merritt Tuesday night, but it appears the Vernon Vipers forgot their sense of urgency at home. The Snakes allowed four unanswered goals en route to a lacklustre 7-1 loss to the host Centennials, who were relieved to snap a six-game B.C. Hockey League losing streak in front of 550 fans at Nicola

Valley Arena. For a team that should be bloodthirsty for wins – the 25-22-1-2 Vipers aree chasing the 26-20-1-2 Chilliwack Chiefs for the final Interiorr Conference berth – Vernon head coach Jason Williamson said his team looked almost fragile against the second-place Cents (27-17-2-5).

www.rosmanrv.com

“It was there in spurts, but then we had some brain cramps and lost coverage in our own end,” said the rookie bench boss. “There were times where we took over the game, and there were times where, whatever they got, we kind of just gave e it to them. “They stretched the zone and our dee have got to go with them. You can’t just

leave them alone.” The Vipers looked to regroup as they entertained the Nanaimo Clippers (22-18-09) Thursday night at Wesbild Centre. They are on the road tonight against the leagueleading Penticton Vees (44-3-0-2) tonight at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Rylan Ferster’s 18-26-2-5 Westside Warriors visit Wesbild Centre Saturday night.

of that and we didn’t pick up bodies and they were more determined in those tough areas.” Going into Tuesday’s tilt, the Cents had scored only five goals in their last six games. Asked the reason for their turnaround, Brears told Black Press: “I think that everybody was really focused. Also, we got back to relaxing almost, and keeping a positive attitude on the ice and in the room.” Vernon’s goal came on a dumpin, with Mike Zalewski winning a race to the puck and feeding John Knisley a back-door pass for his eighth of the season. Williamson credited Cents’ netminder Lino Chimienti for his third star, 34-save performance, but said the Vipers needed to test him more on rebounds. Kirby Halcrow, who was pulled in the third period, didn’t get a lot of help in making 24 saves for the Vipers, said Williamson. Backup tender Danny Todosychuk stopped five shots in nearly eight minutes of relief work. SNAKE BITES: Vernon d-man Sean Robertson scrapped Merritt’s Brendan Lamont late in the third period after Lamont hit the Vipers’ Ryan Renz from behind...The Vees

Healthy for the first time in months, the Vipers know they have no excuses to fall back on if they can’t string together some wins, especially on the road, where they haven’t won a game in regulation since Nov. 4 (4-2 win over the Trail Smoke Eaters). They have three OT road wins over Trail, Salmon Arm and Prince George since then. “We know we can do it, as we did a little bit here to climb back in the race, but that’s not good enough,” said Williamson. “We’ve got to bottle up whatever it is we do at home and do it on the road. We tried to change certain aspects of our game for the road, just to simplify things.” Tuesday night, Merritt’s Brandon Bruce and Regan Soquila, named first and second star respectively, paced the Cents with two goals and an assist each. Chad Brears added a goal and two helpers, singles coming from Carter Shinkaruk and Brent Fletcher. “A lot of the goals they scored early were like football scrums, which we said we had to be like, with guys going to the net,” said Williamson. “They did a good job

RICHARD LAM/UBC ATHLETICS

Vernon's Ryan Kakoske (left), a defenceman with the UBC Thunderbirds, keeps a close watch on Reid Jorgensen of the Calgary Dinos in CIS men's hockey action. Kakoske, 24, graduates this spring. Kakoske has amassed two goals, three assists and six penalty minutes in 26 games with UBC this season, while continually drawing the toughest defensive assignments. He recorded four goals and 14 assists in 106 career games. “Ryan has been our — Ryan top d-man for the past three years, and this year is not different,” said UBC head coach Milan Dragicevic. “He plays against the teams’ top lines and

plays close to 30 minutes a night. He comes to compete every night and always leads example.” After alternating wins and losses for their first eight games of the season, the T-Birds dropped five of six games in November Kakoske before catching fire with six consecutive wins in December and January. “We have quite a few first-year guys so it was kinda nice to get their confidence going into the second

However, four straight losses to start February have left UBC fifth in Canada West at 12-11-3 (top six teams make playoffs).

At 106 games and counting, Vernon’s Ryan Kakoske is a veritable greybeard in the world of Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) men’s hockey. A defensive stalwart with the UBC Thunderbirds, the 24-year-old Kakoske will end a four-year university career and step right into an associate training position with CIBC’s commercial banking sector this spring in downtown Vancouver. It’s not a position one lands with so-so grades. Kakoske, who played Junior A with the B.C. Hockey League’s Vernon Vipers, maintained an 80 per cent average while balancing school and hockey. An academic All-Canadian, he chose a “nice, light final semester” course load comprising e-commerce, finance and, just for fun, an elective in geology. “I had some pretty solid coaching between Ferns (Mark Ferner) and Mark Holick (in Vernon)... instilling some pretty hard-working principles in me,” said Kakoske. “That competitiveness has translated over to school. You put in that extra time to do well and playing those two-and-a-half years in Vernon really helped me out with that.” Compared to the marathon Junior schedules, Kakoske says it is a wonder he even reached the 100game plateau in university. “It’s a little weird only playing 28 games (in a regular season). As an 18-year-old, when I was between Sicamous (Eagles, KIJHL) and Vernon, I played 89 games that year alone. “It’s definitely taken a little more time to get to 100 here than it did there. I’m kind of the wiliest of wily vets as far as games played is concerned.”

The Vernon Tim Hortons Flames recorded four straight wins to claim the Kootenay Cup in the Nakusp Atom Tournament last weekend. After decisive preliminary victories over Rossland (8-0), Grand Forks (9-2) and Kaslo (12-1), Vernon ambushed the Kelowna Predators 9-1 in the final. Steel Quiring supplied 3+2 for the Flames, while Isaac Thomas scored twice and singles came from Jacob Bode, Jakob Jones, Jace Weir and Connor Elliott. Wingers Jordyn Morris, Christopher Bond and Quinn Soon made clutch assists, demonstrating textbook positional and passing play. Exceptional defending from Porter Trevelyan, Gage Stoll, and Ethan Harshenin made it almost impossible to score on Flames’ goalie Owen

Swiscoski, who recorded a shutout against Rossland. The weekend before, the Flames went 3-0 before falling 4-3 to host Penticton Black Knights in the final of another tournament. Elliott, Boden and Quiring handled the Flames’ offence, while Swiscoski made numerous saves to keep Vernon in the hunt and earn game MVP. Jones, Christopher Bond and Weir maintained furious pressure on Penticton, raining pucks only to be stopped by the posts. Valiant efforts came from Trevelyan, Soon, Peyton Storey and Morris. Tim Hortons sponsors five Novice teams, coached by Jason Boden (Flames), Scott Finlayson (Dynamites), Marlon Schaper-Kotter (Killer Sharks), Shawn Bourgeois (Flyers) and Tim Milne (Black Widows).

Certified coaches inspire at the B.C. Winter Games KERRY VITAL For The Morning Star

Coaches can sometimes be the unsung heroes of athletic success. The images we see in the media are of goldmedal-winning athletes standing on podiums with their coach nowhere to be seen. But almost without fail, athletes will credit their coach for their success ahead of anyone else. Coaches lead and inspire athletes from community programs to the Olympic and Paralympic podiums. At the B.C. Games, coach education and training is a priority with all coaches at the Games requiring certification from the National Coaching Certification Program. Coaches B.C. is the provincial organization responsible for coaching education programs and the ongoing support and development of coaches. “A coach’s preparation for the B.C. Games, or any other competitive environment, is just as important as an athlete’s preparation,” says Coaches B.C. Executive Director Gord May. “Every successful athlete has been trained by someone who has taken the time to learn about the technical aspects of their sport and how to prepare their athletes both mentally and physically. Excellence will come about when you have the right tools and use them the right way.” The provincial sport organizations involved in

the B.C. Winter and B.C. Summer Games have demonstrated that they are committed to coach development throughout the province. Many sports utilize the B.C. Games as a unique opportunity for coach mentorship and training. Karate B.C. developed a junior coach mentorship program as part of the B.C. Winter Games where youth coaches have the opportunity to work with a certified adult coach. Six coaches ranging in age from 15 to 18 years old will be part of the program at the 2012 B.C. Winter Games. “The B.C. Games is an ideal way of furthering (development of) our young athletes into future coaches,” says Fernando Correia, the Duncan-based provincial advisor for Karate B.C. “I am excited about our new program and I know that our junior coaches are looking forward to attending the B.C. Winter Games and having the opportunity to develop new skills under the tutelage of some of Karate B.C.’s best coaches.” Another successful mentorship program developed by the B.C. Games Society, Coaches B.C. and promotion plus, supports the education of female coaches. For Laura Watson, Technical Director with Coaches B.C. and ringette coach, this has been a terrific opportunity for both her and her apprentice coach.

Laura Watson is a mentor coach at the B.C. Games.

“As I started out in coaching I wish that I had had an opportunity to study from a seasoned coach. It would have provided me with the opportunity to see how an effective coach really operates,” she says. “The B.C. Games experience that we have for our apprentice coach is absolutely the best experience that we could ever offer someone.” The dedication and commitment of coach-

es around the province strengthens the overall sport system and contributes to communities and social development. For many, coaching is a way of life. Gary Ricks, a Level 3 certified coach at Key City Gymnastics in Cranbrook, reflects on the impact of coaching on his life. “Coaching helps you take stock of where you are now in all aspects of your life and

how that compares to where you would like to be,” he says. Over his 31-year coaching career, Ricks has been no stranger to the B.C. Winter Games having attended over 12 times. It will be a family affair this year at the B.C. Winter Games in Vernon as Ricks coaches the Kootenays Zone 1 team; his wife Michelle is the provincial advisor for gymnastics and his niece Madysen will be a

competing athlete. A total of 122 head coaches and 110 assistant coaches will

lead 1,148 athletes at the 2012 B.C. Winter Games Feb. 23 to 26 in Greater Vernon.

day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (per FDA website). Millions suffer needlessly and can stop their nightly ordeals. To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH  Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS  For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.  Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in #23 2011. I had sleep apnea, too.

Heartburn Reflux

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 95% acidic food (meat, noodles, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy 7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box.

 Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC  Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA  Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL  Suffered with reflux, choking and coughing. After starting Bell #39 I feel great. Amazed about the complete relief. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Katarina Tusa, 63, North York, ON Was sleeping sitting up to avoid reflux. I thought I had this health problem for life like my other family members. Bell #39 #39 brought quick relief. Can sleep now normally, have more energy, feel great. Bell products are quite different.

Terry Pakenham received the Silver Star Rotary Club Police Volunteer of the Year Award for his community service after retirement as an RCMP officer.

Pakenham earns honour CARA BRADY

Morning Star Staff

The Silver Star Rotary Club Police Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Terry Pakenham at Winter Breakout during Vernon Winter Carnival. The recipient of the award is chosen from nominations submitted by peers. One of the nominations for Pakenham read: “He has continually and unselfishly given of himself because he believed in people.” Pakenham served 25 years as an RCMP officer, coming to Vernon in 1990. He retired in 1999 but continued to be active in the community, starting the Safe Communities Unit. In 2009, he came back to the RCMP in the forensic identification section. Since 2011, Pakenham and his wife, Jean, have promoted the Jean Minguy Memorial Youth Academy, for young people who are interested in a career in law enforcement. “He wants to see every student who wants to attend to have the opportunity to participate. He gives without expecting anything in return,” the nomination went on. Inspector Reg Burgess said, “He has been a mentor and inspiration to people of all ages. I know he has been to me.” Mayor Rob Sawatzky added, “It is the kind of work that Terry does that helps make our community the kind we all want to live in.” Pakenham received a cheque for $500 to presented to the charity of his choice, which was North Okanagan Hospice Society. “We believe in Vernon, and anything we can do to make it better place to live in, we’re going to do that,” he said.

0OWERHOUSETRANSFORMSINTO,ITTLE)TALY Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bev Steeves uses her acting chops to helm Italian American Reconciliation KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Bev Steeves can still remember the feeling as she stepped out on to the stage for the first time. A former student at a performing arts high school, not unlike the one in Fame â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although instead of New York, this one was in her hometown of Sudbury, Ont. â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Steeves knew she was home. Now a licensed practical nurse by day, Steeves has found a new home on the local stage since moving to Vernon eight years ago, and although she is physically small in stature, her presence has become known to everyone who has seen her in Powerhouse Theatre productions and otherwise. Most notable of her performances was that of Rizzo, the smart talking gal from Powerhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 production of Grease, where Steeves stepped up to the plate after the original cast member had to drop out. Admittedly older than her fellow actors in Grease, Steeves applied her abundant energy to the role, and won the hearts of the audience. Lately, Steeves has applied that same energy to working behind the scenes as director of Powerhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming production of Italian American Reconciliation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Powerhouse has brought some creativity to my life. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been let loose, so to speak. This is my safe haven,â&#x20AC;? said Steeves about her fiveyear affiliation with the local community theatre. Steeves started off a set dresser on Oliver in 2007, however, her first time on the stage in Vernon was when she acted in The Sleep Inn (produced by fellow Powerhouse member Mike Poirierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Back Stage

JOSĂ&#x2030; LAROCHELLE/MORNING STAR

Aldo Scalicki, played by Justin Kopy, visits waitress Theresa (Breanne Volker) at Popâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soup House, while Aunt May (Wendy Chambers) looks on in Powerhouse Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mid-season production of Italian American Reconciliation, opening Wednesday. Theatre.) And she has since taken on numerous roles, from playing to type as a nurse in the awardwinning Wit to playing Bill Bisher in the pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk. Italian American Reconciliation is Steevesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; third directing effort, and her first full-length play. Her first foray in the directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chair came when she directed former local playwright Greg Simisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-act play Lumps for the Powerhouse membership at an annual general meeting. She later directed another one-act during a directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showcase, again at Powerhouse, but this time it was shown to the general public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was (former Powerhouse board president) Monty Hughes who first approached me about directing, and from there other people approached me to do it again,â&#x20AC;? said Steeves, adding Powerhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic committee presented her with Italian American Reconciliation to direct this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve enjoyed going from playing a character role myself to thinking about all the roles and how they

react with each other,â&#x20AC;? said Steeves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a learning experience, which is fine as I am still a baby at this theatre, but everyone has been immensely supportive, especially (co-producer) Val Heuman, Having her on my team is an ace in the hole. She knows how to get things done.â&#x20AC;? Written by American playwright/ director John Patrick Shanley, who is probably best known for his other Italian-American-based script, Moonstruck, Italian American Reconciliation follows in the footsteps of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleeper hit at Powerhouse, Lend Me a Tenor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I read this play, I knew right away that it was great and something that I would like to see,â&#x20AC;? said Steeves about Shanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s script. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought about how it could be funny visually after I first read it, then I went back to it to see how the words were funny, and to get the comedic timing. I love the passion in it, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fortunate to be surrounded by a crew in this play that are just as passionate, and fun.â&#x20AC;? Featuring a cast of five, the play follows divorced New Yorker Huey

Maxmillian Bonfigliano (played by Powerhouse newcomer Trevor Howitt), who is still stuck on his exwife, Janice (Erika Belsheim, recently seen in the Vernon Community Music School Glee Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of Mamma Mia). The problem is she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that interested in reconciling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He feels he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be complete until he gets her back. He wants to reclaim his mojo. Whereas, she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get back with Huey as she never felt he even looked or got to know her. She never felt he understood who she is... He brought her roses, but she wanted something deeper,â&#x20AC;? said Steeves, adding she has been helping Belsheim find her inner â&#x20AC;&#x153;mean girlâ&#x20AC;? for the role. Complicating matters further is Hueyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current girlfriend, Theresa (Breanne Volker), who works as a waitress at Popâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soup House, and is unaware of Hueyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intentions for a reconciliation with his ex-wife â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Theresa) is an angelic character; more of the good girl next door... I hope the audience feels

for her. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the person who has everything and everything to lose,â&#x20AC;? said Steeves. Also throwing a wrench in the works is Hueyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend Aldo (Seaton grad Justin Kopy), who is best described in best New York accent as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;playa.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been married so he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand. He claims he has women coming out of his ears, but we find out that women wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t marry him and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to marry them. We learn he has a much deeper side,â&#x20AC;? said Steeves. More humour comes in the way of secondary character, Theresaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aunt May (Wendy Chambers), who is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to giving advice to her niece, but feels her own worth is waning as she ages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The characters are very real,â&#x20AC;? said Steeves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope the audience can relate to them. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure there have been some women and men who have walked away from a situation she or he regrets and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have back.â&#x20AC;? Set designer Chris Bayne and head of construction Dave Deshane have designed three different locations for the play, including Hueyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment, basically a 10-by-10foot bachelor-style apartment, as well as Popâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soup House, where most of all the scenes take place at the counter, and then Janiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s balcony overlooking her backyard, which sets a scene in the manner of Cyrano de Bergerac. Steeves also gives a special shout-out to stage manager Mitch Morin, who will take over her reins when the play finally makes it to the stage next week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He does a fabulous job and goes with the flow. He knows his job so well. I am also thankful to him for finishing my sentences.â&#x20AC;? Powerhouse Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of Italian American Reconciliation opens Wednesday and runs nightly at 8 p.m. until March 3, except Sunday and Monday. A matinĂŠe performance will take place Sunday, Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Ticket Seller box office, 549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

Sing along with these ski bums Morning Star Staff

It doesn’t matter if you’re a musical buff, ski bum, ski buff, or musical bum, Ski Bum: The Musical is a fast-paced, shredding good time for the whole family. Produced by Rossland’s Iron Mountain Theatre, the show is touring ski towns all over the province, and will land in Vernon for a two-night run at Silver Star Mountain Resort tonight and Saturday. A character-driven, seasonal-inspired homage to the dirt bags, debutantes, lurkers and posers constantly in search of bottomless pow, Ski Bum is a musical comedy that pokes fun of musical theatre while highlighting the trials and tribulations faced by a variety of mountain lovers. The four-person cast, Jane Gaudet, Grant Waters, RJ Peters and Nadine Tremblay, play multiple roles that depict characters of mountain culture life in their purest form. The play follows lead character Jeff Snowden, who needs to grow up a little, and act more responsibly if he wants things to go his way in adulthood. When an old flame at Big Snow Peak sparks a renewed interest in Jeff’s heart, he starts to consider the benefits of gaining a level of maturity. With the help of cultural anthropologist, played by newest cast member Waters, studying the culture and practices of skibummery, and a sometimes-not-so-nice head of ski patrol, Snowden begins to see that he doesn’t have to give up skiing and having fun in order to evolve.

Written by Tyler Austin Bradley and Mark Pollard, with music by Tremblay and directed by Shane Snow, Ski Bum is jammed packed with hummable tunes that span a wide range of genres, jokes that run the gamut of humour from slapstick to high comedy, and 11 inspired musical performances. The innuendo alone is enough to tickle even the most chafed of funny-bones. The cast has also been hard at work on the release of their original soundtrack

recording, which will be available for purchase at the show. Ski-Bum: The Musical takes the stage at Silver Star’s National Altitude Training Centre tonight at 7:30 p.m. (Doors open at 7 p.m.) and Saturday at 8:30 p.m. (Doors open at 8 p.m.) Tickets are $15 for adults and students, $10 for seniors 65-plus and children 12 and under, available from the guest services information desk at Silver Star Mountain, or call (250) 558-6079.

Turner? Mainly one thing, and that’s because Turner’s album, her first, is a five-song EP that’s to the point and brief. It’s as long as it needs to be. Turner, who recorded her album in Vancouver, shows herself as a wellrounded songwriter whose strength is in chimey and ringing poptinged rock songs. Right away, the production comes off as tasteful, and the restraint shown on the recording seems natural and relaxed. This highlights Turner’s vocals, which bring on many breezy elements of mid’90’s

here, and the band and Turner lean toward upbeat radio-friendly soft rock, while stepping clear of clichés (Sunset Mountain). There aren’t any shadows and rough bumps here, and the vibe is shiny and warm. A dark-leaning dynamic that appears in These Days makes it seem to jump out in contrast to the highspirited tenor of the preceding songs. This

track is well-paced, with a simple sincerity and depth of arrangement. Turner’s songs are unabashedly cheerful,

and deceptively clever. They have pop appeal, but they don’t get concerned with the industry standard.

ies use nowadays. TAYLOR: Many films are getting shot in South Africa lately and I did enjoy the dichotomy of Cape Town, modern glossiness aside desperate poverty. The cinematography was typical action film style, which is to say, suffering from shaky-camera syndrome. (Although I’ve seen worse.) HOWE: If you liked the Bourne trilogy, Safe House is a nice little filler till the Bourne Legacy comes out this summer. It has everything you need, great characters, explosions, chases and bad guys. So what if it’s predictable and clichéd, we love these films, therefore we keep on watching them. TAYLOR: There are a couple surprises along the way that make the journey fun. I enjoyed the film’s subtext, that there are no good or bad guys, not in this business. This was a smart film and people who understand the realities of the modern spy game will appreciate the lingo, protocol and poignancy of this seemingly simple tale. Howe gives Safe House 3.5 stolen files out of 5. Taylor gives it a clearance level 3 out of 5. The film is currently screening at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon. –– Enter our Oscar contest: All you have to do is like Reel Reviews with Taylor & Howe on Facebook, pick the winners in the four “main” categories, and you can win a free movie pass and be a guest reviewer in The Morning Star.

Volunteers Nancy MacDonald (left) Brian Jackson and Penny Kizor make waffles every Tuesday for residents of Hospice House. It’s just one of the programs supported by the upcoming Coffee Party for Hospice, taking place for the entire month of March.

Pour a cup for a good cause The Coffee Party for Hospice goes a long way towards maintaining programs Morning Star Staff

The Coffee Party for Hospice is a way for everyone to give a little bit and for that little bit to add up to help maintain the hospice community volunteer programs. “People tell us that the coffee parties are a good way to socialize and help hospice,” said Valerie Blundell, Vernon and District Hospice Society financial assistant. “People get creative with what they do.

Last year a resident of Lumby hosted a coffee party at the curling club and asked people to bring an appy or a dessert and $10 and raised $500. A Vernon couple hosted an open house in their gated community club house and raised almost $1,000.” Blundell is looking forward to seeing what people come up with this year — maybe service clubs, office and sports groups, other clubs and large or small groups of friends getting together for coffee and to make their $10 donations. One of the hospice volunteers is organizing an English Afternoon Tea from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. March 6 at The People Place. Tickets are $15 each and must be purchased in advance. “It doesn’t have to be coffee — what about beer and wings, poker and peanuts,

tea and cookies? The magic number is the $10 donation,” she said. “I’m hoping that local coffee houses will get on board and maybe give us a percentage of coffee sales for a day or for the month. We want to reach out to everyone in the community.” The 2011 Coffee Party raised more than $24,000, all in $10 donations. The goal for this year is $20,000. The Coffee Party for Hospice is on for the whole month of March. After people have completed their events, they can bring or send the proceeds to North Okanagan Hospice Society, 3506-27 Ave., Vernon, B.C., V1T 1S4. Be sure to mark that the donation is from a coffee party. For more information or to buy a ticket for the afternoon tea, call Blundell at 250-503-1800 (ext. 113).

Local author puts the focus on homesteaders Morning Star Staff

Dal Bracken’s new book, Raw Courage How Pioneer Homesteaders Changed the Rugged West into Canada’s Breadbasket of the World, recognizes the endurance of all the area’s inhabitants, from the earliest migrants from Asia to the Europeans who came seeking a better life in the 19th century.

Bracken’s focus is on the people who came to Canada from 1870 to 1930, mostly through the Homestead Act of 1872 which offered 160 acres of land for $10, and their lives through 1939. It includes his own memories of growing up in Southern Saskatchewan during the 1920s and ‘30s. “I wanted to do this because once my

generation is gone, there will be no link between the past and the future. Our parents and grandparents were homesteaders but no one will know what it was like for them,” said Bracken, 91. Bracken will have a book signing for Raw Courage Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Coles in the Village Green Centre.

One job too many

D

ear Annie: My husband and I work comparable hours, but I earn less than half of what he does and have little discretionary income. I come home to my “second shift,” which includes cooking, cleaning and picking up after this man, who leaves his dirty clothes, snack packaging and other things strewn about the house. Meanwhile, he runs off to play golf. After Kathy Mitchell & Marcy Sugar dinner, he falls asleep in front of the TV. He doesn’t even mow the lawn or do routine household maintenance. He hires out for those things. Anything he’s asked to do, he deflects by saying “I pay.” To an extent, this is true. He pays the majority of household bills. But I pay for most of the food and all of the household products (bathroom tissue, toothpaste, shampoo) that we both use. I even keep a garden to help pad our grocery bill in the summer months. I’ve told him I feel like his servant. I don’t earn enough to hire a housekeeper. And don’t tell me to go on strike. I’ve tried it, and he is perfectly content to live in a pigsty. He says I’m a clean freak. I am not. I simply cannot live in such clutter and filth. Other than this, he’s a good man, intelligent, fun, and he makes me laugh. I’m not ready to throw us away for this problem. But I admit there are days when the idea of living alone is very appealing. He reads you faithfully and respects your opinion. Please help. — Lake-Effect Wife Dear Wife: Marriage is a partnership. Married couples who have disparate incomes and insist on splitting the bills often run into these problems. Since you work the same hours, you should both do equal amounts of housework and share laundry and cooking duties. Since he doesn’t do these things, however, and you are

ANNIE'S MAILBOX

picking up his used food containers and dirty clothes, cooking the meals and doing his laundry, he should pay for cleaning help. And no, this does not mean you are a clean freak. It means you are avoiding a visit by the board of health. Dear Annie: A couple of my friends are recovering from illness and accidents, and their family members keep us updated through CaringBridge.org, a wonderful website. I just don’t understand why some authors know no boundaries. I recently read an update saying, “Johnny is now having a good solid stool every day.” Really? Did Johnny want that shared with the world? And on another site: “Mary is seeing a psychologist for help with her anger toward her family.” There is no shame in bowel movements or psychology, but please, out of respect for the person, skip those details. Just tell us the basics of how they are doing and feeling. I have informed my kids and siblings that if I ever need such a site, they are not to mention my urine output. I’m thankful for CaringBridge, as it is a great way to let people know how a friend is doing. But I am sad for the patient whose privacy is sometimes a casualty. — Not-SoNosy Nellie Dear Nellie: Thank you for pointing out that not all details need to be disclosed to everyone, a concept many people no longer grasp. And thank you, too, for giving us the opportunity to once again mention CaringBridge.org. Dear Annie: “S.P.” said she no longer trusts her husband of many years. Yes, it’s possible he will someday stop his philandering. But she should also consider what any philanderer could bring home to a spouse: STDs. A lot of things can be forgiven (and medically treated), but some sexually transmitted diseases are with you for the rest of your life. Our society may take casual affairs with a grain of salt, but we should be reminded now and then that affairs can kill you. — Another Side in California

Enderby promotes heritage Morning Star Staff

Two brick houses in Enderby and two public buildings in Mara will be honoured by the Enderby & District Heritage Commission with heritage plaques during B.C. Heritage Week. The Enderby & District Museum and the Enderby & District Heritage Commission are co-sponsoring this event, to be held Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. in the museum on Hwy 97A. Guest speakers have been invited to tell stories of building renovations, changes to the buildings, and the people who lived or served there. Brass heritage plaques sponsored by the City of Enderby and the Enderby/Area F Services Committee will be presented for four buildings. The first is a two-storey brick house at 602 Hubert Ave. built by Andy

Baird in 1906. Frank Treat, the longest resident, was well-known in the valley for Treat’s Travelling Theatre. The second house, also a twostorey brick house, is located at 211 Salmon Arm Dr. Built in 1908 for Sam Teece, local farmer and businessman, it sat on a large acreage and features nautical windows and a large verandah. Mara Community Hall and Mara Community Church will also receive brass plaques. The hall was built in 1911 and has been renovated and upgraded. The church, originally St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, was built in 1912. Everyone is invited to attend this event to learn more about the buildings and their owners. A reception will follow.

ALL ABOARD!

Satyama Lasby tries out some chocolate during her recent trip to Costa Rica. She promises that her Saturday workshop, Chocolate Yoga, will include plenty of the dark stuff.

Yoga meets chocolate Morning Star Staff

Dark chocolate and yoga are both well-known as having health benefits for the body. And on Saturday, the two will be combined in a special Chocolate Yoga workshop. Facilitated by yoga teacher Satyama Lasby with Open to Bliss Productions, the workshop invites participants to experiment with the bean and the body, to move this natural medicine through the system in a specially designed yoga practice involving asana, dance and physical interaction. “This will target the digestion of organic cacao in a way where we become more aware of its internal euphoric effects,” said Lasby. “Ceremony, tantra and the magic of cacao are united in order to open and connect with our bodies and with others in the group in a meaningful yet playful way. “Cacao is a superfood, widely known for its stimulating effects and antioxidant properties. With its ability to both stimulate the nervous

system and relax the muscles in the body through magnesium found in the cacao bean, this celebratory workshop brings both balance and joy to the body and mind, from a heart-centred space — besides, during the workshop, you get to enjoy the best chocolate ever in various forms served at various times with products brought in from my recent trip to Costa Rica.” Lasby is a veteran yoga teacher with qualifications from Integrative Yoga Therapy, Sivananda, Vinyasa and Agama Yoga traditions. She has taught at the Osho International Meditation Resort in India, Pachamama in Costa Rica, the Yoga House in Guatemala and across Canada for more than 15 years. The workshop takes place Saturday from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Innter Light Yoga Studio in Vernon. Participation is by suggested donation of $20 per person. Registration is not absolutely necessary, but an RSVP is appreciated to give Lasby an idea of how much chocolate to bring along to the workshop. RSVP to info@opentobliss.com.

BIBLE BASICS

“Thou hast the dew of thy youth:” Psa. 110:3: The Son’s dew, born from the dew of the Dawn, are his brethren, the saints; born of the Spirit from the invisible at the dawn of Messiah’s day the day of 1000 years. The clouds of the Millenial expanse are the sparkling dew of Yahweh exalted to place and power, pregnant with lightning and thunderings. The power of Deity is the omnipotence of that apocalypse: Eternal Power invested with clouds of virtuous and heroic immortals.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) When involved with friends who are generous and considerate, be sure to unlock your wallet as best you can. If you don’t, the contrast will make you look like a skinflint. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Relax and just be yourself because, unfortunately, any form of pretense could make you look phony and would produce the opposite effect of the one you are trying to make. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) If you allow your emotions to gain the upper hand, they are likely to affect your ability to evaluate certain situations in a meaningful manner. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Usually you’re not the type of person who tends to nurse grudges, yet you might have a difficult time being around someone whom you feel treated you badly. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Be cognizant of what you say and how you behave. You could unintentionally do something or use words that will make you look rudely disinterested in what others say or do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) All you may want is to be helpful, but a friend might consider any unsolicited suggestions on your behalf to be uncouth criticism. Be sure your pal wants an honest assessment of his or her work. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Lending money or something of value to someone who, time after time, fails to return what

he or she borrows could be a pretty dopey thing to do. If you get taken, it’ll be your own fault. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Even if it’s inconvenient for you, stand by your word. If you break a promise you made, someone who holds you in high esteem will be severely disappointed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Strive to be discerning of the job you’re doing, especially if you consider it to be a work of art. Your normally excellent taste might not be up to the job’s demands. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Be sure your purse can withstand any extravagant splurges you subject it to. Once you empty it, it might take quite a while to replenish. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Whether you be flitting through the social sphere or merely taking care of business at work, be on your best behavior when placed in a highly visible position. Antisocial actions always mar one’s image.

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

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder THE TARGET IS NINE, NOT A BULL’S-EYE Kenneth Williams, an English radio, television and movie comedian, said, “I see myself as a roving mosquito, choosing its target.” Bridge defenders should see themselves as mosquitoes, choosing the number of tricks needed to defeat the contract as their target. How should East bite into this three-no-trump contract after West leads the spade eight? South might have responded one no-trump, but making a negative double to keep hearts in the picture was better. Then, after North showed extra values with at least six respectable clubs, it was

reasonable for South to take a shot at three no-trump. (If South had responded one no-trump, North, with seven certain winners, would have raised to three no-trump.) When the dummy comes down, East should ask himself two questions: Where might my side find five winners, and how many tricks does declarer have ready to run? The defenders need to take either four spades and one heart or one spade and four hearts. If East, after capturing the first trick, continues spades, he should realize that South will win with his king and take at least eight more tricks via two diamonds (the finesse is working if needed) and six clubs.

Instead, East must win with his spade ace and shift to the heart two, hoping West has four strong hearts. Here, this line of defense works perfectly. West takes the trick as cheaply as possible and returns the heart six to East’s ace. Then another heart through South results in down one.

Joseph Hawrys Joseph “Joe” Hawrys was born in Winnipeg, MB on October 1st, 1917 and passed away peacefully, age 94, in Enderby, BC on February 6th, 2012. Joe arrived in Grindrod, BC with his parents Michael and Anne Hawrys and 3 of his siblings. He married Ksenia “Kay” Smaha in 1951, they moved to Enderby where he continued to reside in their original home until 1 1/2 years ago when he moved into Parkview Place in Enderby, BC. Joe had a variety of careers including running a stationary baler and crew for a number of years; in 1959 he started hauling milk (the old milk can days) and later introduced the bulk system to many North Okanagan farmers in 1963; he had a brief stint in the Army during WWII until being recalled home; and he worked at various sawmills, until his retirement, as a lumber grader. Travelling with Kay was a big part of their time together - it even started on their honeymoon when they motored across to Eastern Canada and New York State. They eventually visited all 10 provides and 2 of the territories, including driving the Dempster Hwy to Inuvik; taking an Alaskan cruise, and seeing much of the USA, Great Britain, and New Zealand. Joe was a proud member of the Masonic Lodge since 1945 and associated groups (Royal Arch, Preceptory), became a lifetime member of the Shriners organization (joining in 1948); and belonged to the Order of the Eastern Star for 26 years. He always enjoyed being around the family, watching baseball, camping, fishing or playing a round of golf, and he was always ready for a game of crib. Joe is lovingly remembered by his son Lorne (Dawn) Hawrys of Grindrod; his daughter Leanne Frederick of Armstrong; his 6 grandchildren Lynne Hawrys (Kelley Wiker) of Salmon Arm, Erin Hawrys (Kelly Koskimaki) of Enderby, Trevor (Kaili) Hawrys of Salmon Arm, Dale Frederick of Gimli, MB, Evan Frederick and Taryn Frederick, both of Armstrong; his 5 greatgrandchildren and his brothers Tony, Alex, George, and Michael. He was predeceased by his wife Kay in 1998, one sister Mary, one brother Bert, and his son-in-law Dennis Frederick. Cremation. Memorial Service to be held at St. Ann’s Catholic Church (Hwy 97A, Enderby, BC) on Saturday, February 18th at 1:00 p.m. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca.
