Enderby Fire Department’s Capt. Dan Doorn hoses down some of the burning rubble of a 100-year-old heritage building in the 700 block of Cliff Avenue Sunday after it went up in flames earlier in the morning. The building, which opened in 1911 as the Enderby Opera House, had been vacant for several years.

Fire guts Enderby heritage site ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

It was built in 1911, originally home to the Enderby Opera House which staged its first production at Christmas of that same year. The 100-year-old twostorey Enderby heritage building in the 700 block of Cliff Avenue was reduced to charred rubble Sunday after a fire broke out in the vacated building at around 2 a.m. “This is a big part of our town’s history, and it’s very, very, very sad to see,” said Joan Cowan, curator of the Enderby Museum, who gathered to watch a handful of Enderby Fire Department firefighters mop up the blaze

just after noon Sunday. Cowan said the opera house was built by Samuel Polson and was used strictly for opera, plays, musicals, choirs and local choirs for the remainder of its first decade. By the 1920s, opera was no longer popular and the building became known as The Coliseum, said Cowan, housing silent movies until Enderby opened a regular theatre to show talking pictures. The Knights of Pythias service club took over the structure and used it as a community hall and meeting place for a number of years before it became an electronics outlet in the 1950s,

remaining as such for close to 30 years. Greyhound Bus Service was added to the building and it remained that way up until about three or four years ago. The bottom half of the building was used for commercial purposes and the top half was an apartment. Both were vacant at the time of the fire, which remains under investigation. Cowan said a new, unknown owner bought the building in 2007, but it had remained vacant. Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP said there had been issues with squatters in the facility over the years but the

building was believed to have been empty at the time of the fire. Smoke from Sunday morning’s fire could be seen all around the city. “I was delivering Morning Stars at around 6:30 and 7 a.m. up on Red Basket hill, and I saw the smoke coming straight up from a building,” said Corey Skead, 20. “For a second I thought it was the IGA (grocery store) because it’s pretty much kitty-corner from Greyhound. I walked down to Red Basket and the credit union, and saw flames shooting out of the building.” Witnesses reported the fire was coming out of the second level of the building. Enderby

fire chief Kevin Alstad said the blaze started at the southeast corner of the building, and told RCMP no one was found amid the debris. Alstad said two roommates in an adjoining apartment phoned in the report of the fire. An excavator was brought to the scene to help knock in the walls of the building, as it was deemed dangerous and at risk of falling down towards the street and a side alley. The machine was also used to go through the debris. Alstad said the cause of the fire remains undetermined due to severe damage to the structure, and the file is still being investigated.

A case of street racing has led to a pair of Vernon teenagers having their vehicles impounded. RCMP officer noticed two vehicles northbound on Highway 97, shortly before midnight Monday, going over the 27th Street overpass at a very high rate of speed, and the officer noted that the vehicles appeared to be racing each other. “The two vehicles then accelerated, reaching speeds in excess of 150 km/h in the 90 zone,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “Our officer activated his emergency equipment.” One of the vehicles, a 1996 grey BMW 318, pulled over and stopped by the weigh scales. The officer was able to get the plate number of the Beamer as he went by and continued on past, and stopped and dealt with the driver of the 2000 GMC Sierra pick up that was also involved. “The BMW then drove through the weigh scale lot and headed southbound back into Vernon,” said Molendyk. The Beamer and the driver were later located in Vernon by a second officer. Both drivers are 18, from Vernon, and they have been charged with excessive speeding. The two vehicles have been impounded for seven days under the legislation for street racing.

News Hansen relay wheels through region ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

The City of Vernon has been recognized for its wheelchair accessibility from an organization who knows something about the topic. The Rick Hansen 25-year Man in Motion World tour anniversary wheeled into Vernon Sunday with a special ceremony at Polson Park. Among the highlights was the Hansen organization presenting Vernon Mayor Rob Sawatzky with a medal for the city’s commitment to making its amenities accessible for all residents. “They (Hansen crew) visited a few places in town and were very happy to see how wheelchair accessible things are,� said Courtenay Pitcher, City of Vernon communications officer. While Rick Hansen himself wasn’t part of the North Okanagan portion of the tour, a crowd of 200 to 400 people gathered despite chilly weather conditions. Vernon Paralympians Sonja Gaudet and Josh Dueck had some of their adaptive equipment on hand for residents to look at. Dueck and Gaudet were piped in to the medal bearer ceremony by the Kalamalka Highlanders Pipe Band, and accompanied by RCMP in their traditional red serge. “That was one of the most inspirational parts of the afternoon,� said Pitcher. Prior to arriving at Polson Park, the relay rolled through Okanagan Indian Band territory where elder Patsy Gregoire waited to welcome participants as a personal tribute to

her younger brother, a man who was in an accident and spent “a good 20 years� in a wheelchair as a quadriplegic before passing away. “To be able to have these people who are so busy and travelling all the time to make a little stop here and make the community aware of it, I think it’s wonderful for them to do that,� said Gregoire. “For the elders of the community I think it’s great because we know that there are people out there that can be examples for our youth.� The relay continued Tuesday morning in Vernon with provincial Lt.-Gov., the Honourable Steven L. Point among those running in Vernon as the event headed north. Spallumcheen hosted a six-minute celebration outside township chambers, while the City of Armstrong had the relay leave Pleasant Valley Secondary School for a

run through the city to McDonald’s. Hundreds of students and residents lined the streets to cheer on the relay. Displaying a sign reading: “Rick is my hero,� Grade 3 Armstrong Elementary student Ashlen Vigue said Hansen

Mission collects support RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

An agency that helps people get back on their feet is receiving a boost. The Upper Room Mission is receiving a $100,000 gaming grant that will ensure outreach programs are available to those who need assistance. “It’s foundational to making life changes,” said Lisa Froom, mission general manager. “It’s all about moving forward.” All registered clients can participate in Fresh Start, which focuses on health, finances, relationships, self-esteem and life goals. Some of the clients work and pay high rent, while others are on disability or old age pension. Others struggle with a lack of employment, substance abuse and mental health issues. As part of Fresh Start, some clients sort through beverage containers donated by community members. It’s a way of moving them towards employment. “It will make a world

“People are eating here every day and they need help,” said Foster. While some residents may suggest the mission exists because of inadequate government support systems, Foster disagrees. “Community agencies can provide services at the local level more efficiently than government running them.

City council wants marijuana decriminalized RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Enderby politicians want marijuana decriminalized and taxed. A majority of council voted Monday to ask senior government to regulate cannabis as a way of reducing crime, rationalizing police resources and creating a new source of revenue for communities. “We’re not saying we agree with marijuana but the current process is not working and it fuels the gangs,” said Mayor Howie Cyr, a former RCMP officer. “Instead of throwing countless people into jail (for marijuana possession) and spending money on enforcement, treat it like cigarettes or prescription drugs.” Cyr believes marijuana-related investigations, which can take years, can be a drain on policing resources, and they prevent authorities

“We need to regulate it and tax it.” — Howie Cyr from dealing with other matters. “Smaller communities paying for policing are being hit really hard.” Cyr suggests a new approach to marijuana could also benefit those who use the substance. “We need to regulate it and tax it and put money into education and rehabilitation,” he said. Lone opposition came from Coun. Beryl Ludwig. “Any drug addicts or former addicts you talk to say they started with marijuana,” she said. “Marijuana is the gateway to harder

drugs.” Ludwig admits, though, that she understands the concerns about drug-related crime and police officers spending time on marijuana grow-ops that keep surfacing in the community. “It would be nice to have the taxes from marijuana but would the taxes be enough to pay for the people that need rehabilitation?” she said. “It’s hard to legalize something that wrecks so many lives.” The officer in charge of the North Okanagan RCMP was reluctant to comment on Enderby

council’s decision. “The RCMP’s position is the politicians make the laws and we enforce them,” said Supt. Reg Burgess. “At this point, we are going with the laws given to us to enforce and there is no change there.” Council decided to lobby for cannabis control after a request from Stop the Violence B.C., which advocates for a new approach to marijuana. “The coalition, along with other organizations such as the Health Officers Council of B.C. and the Canadian Public Health Association, believes that a strictly regulated legal market for marijuana could better control availability of the drug while at the same time starve organized crime of this enormous cash cow,” said Evan Wood, Stop the Violence B.C.

organizing graduation. The withdrawal of extracurricular activities is effective immediately through the North Okanagan-Shuswap Teachers’ Association boundaries, which includes the Enderby, Falkland and Armstrong areas. “As a group, we have had our constitutional rights removed by Bill 22 and there are very few ways for teachers to get their message out,” says Lynda Bennett, president of NOSTA. “Teachers should not be expected to continue to subsidize an underfunded system with our unpaid time and our own money.” Secondary school sports that will be impacted by the teacher’s recommendation

include: girls soccer, rugby, track and field, tennis, golf, and mountain biking. At the elementary level, crosscountry running and track and field will be curtailed. In some cases, efforts are being made for parents to coach teams or for community leagues to replace school-based activities. School District superintendent Dave Witt is attending meeting in Vancouver dealing with the implications of Bill 22 and could not be reached for comment by press time. Teachers in some other school districts, including Vernon, have already opted to withdraw participation in voluntary extracurricular activities of protest

the provincial government’s legislation, which imposes a netzero wage mandate and restricts job action. Education Minister George Abbott has assigned a mediator to intervene in the dispute, however, the mediator’s mandate requires the implementation of a net-zero contract, which is hotly disputed by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. While some teachers have sent out individual letters to students about the withdrawal of volunteer work, others have alerted students by word of mouth. Bennett says if parents or students have questions about the status of particular activities they should contact teachers directly.

New speed limit zones ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP are cautioning motorists about a pair of speed limit decreases. Middleton Way, near Sawicki Park, is now posted as a 30-kilometre-an-hour zone seven days a week from dawn until dusk. A school zone on 25th Avenue – which turns into Okanagan Landing Road at Fulton Road – has been created near Ellison Elementary School and Fulton Secondary School. The posted speed limit there, for a school zone, is 30 kilometres an hour Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., when school is in session. “Our message is be aware and slow down in these two areas,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. Fines for speeding in these zones range from $196 to $253 depending on the speed your travelling. If you’re caught

ing on school zones in and around Vernon, starting at 7:30 a.m. “The purpose of the speed watch program is to enhance safety and educate drivers around unsafe speed and dangerous driving,” said Courtenay Pitcher, City of Vernon communications officer. “This is done by reflecting drivers’ speeds and reinforcing the speed limit in that zone.”

Art gala raises $58,175 Morning Star Staff

The pairing of wine and art proved to be a success for a charitable organization. Saturday’s fourth annual Art and Wine Gala at the Eclectic Med raised $58,715 for the North Okanagan Community Living Society, which works with people with developmental disabilities. “The entire evening was so positive from the beginning to the end,” said Garry Molitwenik, executive director. “We ended up over sold by one person – 76 people.” The silent auction included items by 13 local artists and a variety of wine baskets. “Darcy from Auction World was amazing.

The event also featured a five-course meal, with a different Okanagan wine with every course. “The Arctic musk ox tenderloin was so good one cannot describe,” said Molitwenik. Of the $58,175, Pippa Shaw, of Designers Gallery, raised $10,950 in donations. The funds will assist NOCLS’ clients in moving from group homes to independent living with support. “As people move to their own places, there is more need for furnishings and household items. We see such a positive change as people feel more confident and have more choices,” said Molitwenik.

E

ric Foster has been thrown under the bus. The Vernon-Monashee MLA had been promising for weeks that an announcement on Vernon Jubilee Hospital beds would be held April 2 or 3. But at virtually the 11th hour, the plug was pulled because Health Minister Michael de Jong’s schedule changed. Now obviously there are significant demands on de Jong’s time as a minister, but there has been no bigger issue in the North Okanagan than hospital overcrowding. Patients have been shoved into halls and surgeries have been cancelled. Foster, civic leaders, doctors, nurses and particularly residents have been lobbying loudly to have two shelled-in floors in the Polson tower developed into beds. “You have ensured in Richard Rolke the near future that I will be coming back,” said de Jong of rallies, letters and petitions while speaking to the media at a Vernon stop in October. It would be interesting to know what diverted de Jong from Vernon this week. Were there issues on the home front or constituency business he had to attend to? A crisis within the health care system wouldn’t be unusual. Or was he helping Premier Christy Clark shuffle the deck chairs after the iceberg known as John van Dongen’s defection to the Conservatives struck? Foster has put on a brave face and tried to alleviate concerns that de Jong’s no-show may mean money isn’t being pumped into VJH. “This isn’t a delay tactic with the announcement. Nobody needs to be concerned,” he said. But I’m hearing from health care workers and residents who believe the postponed press

“This case still stinks.” The words are those of Leonard Krog, the NDP’s attorney general critic. The case to which he refers is the B.C. Rail scandal, in which former ministerial aides Dave Bassi and Bobby Virk pleaded guilty to charges of breach of trust. The charges were amended counts stemming from the investigation into the bribing of government officials by lobbyists who wanted access to secret documents relating to the sale of B.C. Rail. Despite their guilty pleas on the eve of what was to be the testimony of Gary Collins, the Liberal conference is a clear indication that the govgovernment paid Bassi and Virk’s ernment doesn’t take the North Okanagan legal bill — but no Liberal has seriously.

Let's focus on water solutions

I

n response to J. Bodkin’s letter 'Wary of Unintended Consequences' of water rate hikes, I agree that unintended consequences happen when government decisions are made. But in this instance, I believe reducing water consumption brings an opportunity to change our perception of water. We can use this as an opportunity to come up with innovative ways to use our water. With that being said, I am not in favour of hiking water rates 17 per cent in two successive years. This actually leads to a 37 per cent increase in two years because of compounding rates. Rather, I am suggesting this allows residents of the North Okanagan an opportunity to start using the free water that falls on the landscape in the form of precipitation — water harvesting. I am not talking about just rain barrels, although they are a start. I

DRUG COSTS Health care woes continue to pile up in B.C. According to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association journal, fully 17 per cent of British Columbians do not fill prescriptions because they are just too expensive, nearly double the national rate of 9.6 per cent. When people cannot afford to buy prescriptions, the end result is deteriorating health, which in turn results in increasing demands on our hospitals and emergency rooms. B.C. residents are already struggling with the HST, higher MSP premiums, hydro rates and growing housing costs, and now we'll be paying even more for prescribed drugs. Why? It's because of policies that put multi-national drug companies ahead of public health care. B.C. recently negotiated generic drug prices 40 per cent higher than levels set in Ontario and Quebec. That's bad enough, but B.C.'s failure to intervene in trade negotiations with Europe will likely push drug costs even higher, up to $250 million a year higher, by restricting our access to generics.

would like to propose small water harvesting earthworks to pacify and infiltrate our rain water in order to recharge ground water sources. These come in the form of swales, rain gardens, mulched basins and small ponds. The way storm water currently functions is to centralize all water collected from roofs, roads and other impermeable surfaces. The water gathers in storm sewers in mass volumes and is directed to I have to ask, in all of this, who is speaking out on behalf of the citizens of British Columbia? More importantly, who is acting on our behalf? Mark Olsen POTTERY ROAD How wonderful that our regional district has $100,000 to upgrade a walking path that users are able to use without this upgrade. Why are there funds available for these sorts of projects when there never seems to be any funds for fixing roads properly that are used daily by hundreds of vehicles? For example, Pottery Road was awful before the huge trucks were allowed to haul all of the fill from the VSS site to the end of Pottery. Instead of patching the road properly, it was done with leftovers from other projects, or so it seems. The people doing the patching just put patches over old patches that already had older patches. A logging road is in better shape than this road. Pottery is used by fire trucks using the fire training centre, parents dropping off and picking up their children at Hillview, school buses

open water sources (stream, rivers, lakes). This massive flush of water causes erosion, increased sediment and other ecological problems. If we allow rain water to infiltrate instead of run off, we reduce the pressure on storm water system. When free rainwater is used in conjunction with alternative landscaping techniques, we can still have beautiful gardens and and residents on a daily basis. Another road that is used a lot and really should have a name change to 'Pothole Alley" is Mutrie Road. This road is used by the same people using Pottery whenever they need to go to the north Vernon shopping area. Mutrie has the most popular dog park in the district and is therefore used extensively. I ask you which is more important, a path used by few compared to a patched path used by hundreds daily? Politicians, just remember that the special interest groups are not the majority vote come election time. Common sense needs to rule. Mike Cucheran WITH THE TEACHERS The B.C. Retired Teachers’ Association, which represents 15,000 retired teachers in B.C., stands firmly with the active teachers in our province who seek to maintain quality education for their students. The current issues about class size and composition are the same issues that we fought for and thought were resolved in the past. Once again, as in 1993

thriving landscapes. This does not limit us to xeriscaping and rock gardening. It simply means we must learn from other dry climates to model our landscaping behaviours after. Also, I do not think we will see a reduction in landscaping associated sales/service but we might see a change in species/techniques being offered to suit our drier climate. Tucson, Arizona gets less than 10 inches of rain a year. They harvest all of their roof and road runoff and direct it through curb cuts into mulched basins to grow beautiful boulevards of trees. The soil microbes filter out all contaminants associated with road runoff so worrying that the trees will die from this is not true. The Okanagan Basin Water Board just released a book called Slow it, Spread it, Sink it, a homeowners' guide to implementing rainwater collection and dispersal and 1998, it seems that the government’s only answer is legislation. Everyone who has gone to school feels qualified to judge the education system, but just as the public does not fully comprehend the workload of doctors, nurses, firefighters and the police, so too do they not understand the time commitment in education. The work does not stop when the students are dismissed at the end of the instructional day, it just changes location. I can attest as a secondary school teacher, that marking alone added 28 hours a week to the visible working day. And in the classroom, if one special needs student demands 50 per cent of a teacher’s time what do the other 29 students get? Just as doctors and nurses are in the best position to guide us in the preservation of the health care system, so too are teachers in the best place to help us maintain quality education for our students. Supporting education today is building the future. Douglas Edgar President, BCRTA

systems. It's a book I was lucky enough to contribute to. It is well worth the read to reeducate the masses on alternative methods for water collection, usage and dispersal. Integrated design also shows that linking these water storage and usage techniques to growing more perennial crop/plants reduces water requirements. Perennial plants, unlike annuals, have more established root systems and can tap into deep-water reserves. If you would like to know more, Okanagan College offers courses on rain water harvesting for the Interior and more companies are starting to offer similar services. The rate changes are going to happen no matter what, so let's work together to find solutions instead of focusing on the problems. Gordon Hiebert

The Shags, Derek Rush, Ryan Boesel and Evan Aasen are presented with a cheque for $1,500 from sponsor Kal Tire representative Alan Potts at Our Kids Have Talent held at the Prestige Hotel Saturday. The Vernon band topped the 12 finalists at the fourth annual competition for musical youth ages eight to 18.

These kids rock! Vernon band scoops up top prize at fourth annual Our Kids Have Talent KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

If this weekend was any indication on where music trends are heading, it’s safe to say that retro rock still rules. Take the Junos. Saskatoon boogie-blues rockers The Sheepdogs topped the weekend awards ceremony in Ottawa with five Junos, including Single of the Year. In Vernon, a young band who have an affinity for ‘60s and ‘70s groove and fusion rock caught the ears of the judges at the fourth annual Our Kids Have Talent (OKHT) competition. Held in the ballrooms at the Prestige Hotel Saturday, a sold-out audience enjoyed music performances by all 12 OKHT finalists as well as appetizers served up by Ora Restaurant.

“Out of over 60 applicants this year, the judges (Jackson Mace, Betty Anne Northup and Nancy Nash) painfully decided their top 12, and again it was very hard to choose the top three,” said OKHT founder Kath Raeber of Vernon’s Rarearth Music Festival. Calling their band The Shags, guitarist Evan Aasen, 16, drummer Ryan Boesel, 17, and bassist Derek Rush, 16, who all attend Vernon Secondary School, took home the first place prize of $1,500, presented by Kal Tire. “We’re really into the ‘60s music, which is where we got the name from,” said Aasen, adding shag carpets, which were popular in the day, also had something to do with the band’s moniker. “We pretty much play every genre, and experiment with a lot of different

kinds of music.” Gathering almost daily to practice in Boesel’s basement, The Shags have been playing music together for one year. Ninety percent of their material is original, and the band demonstrated that Saturday playing two of their selfpenned songs. “We recently finished our demo, and are going to start selling those at our shows,” said Aasen, adding he and his bandmates are interested in eventually going on to Nelson’s Selkirk College to study music. But first they have a few gigs coming their way, thanks to OKHT. Along with the prize money, The Shags have also been automatically entered to perform at the Interior Provincial Exhibition Talent Show in Armstrong, and will receive $2,000 to perform at the IPE next year. “We’d like to thank all the people for giving us the opportunity,”

said Aasen. The OKHT judges also recognized 16-year-old Salmon Arm singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Jesse Mast with second place and also as best marketer. Mast received 638 votes from the 1,824 views of his audition video on YouTube to determine the prize, which gives him the opportunity to perform at the Back to Earth Community Harvest Festival in Lavington this summer. “In three weeks there were 12,419 views of all the audition videos,” said Raeber, adding Mast also won $1,000, sponsored by Dr. Kim Daniel, as part of his second overall placing. Penticton’s Beamer Wigley, a nine-year-old guitar whiz who is

no stranger to the OKHT, took home third prize of $500, courtesy of Bannister GM Vernon. All 12 finalists will receive numerous performing opportunities this year, including appearances at the YAA (Youth Achievement and Appreciation) Festival in Vernon in May, as well as Vernon’s Sunshine Festival and the Summerland Action Festival in June. “Part of getting into Our Kids Have Talent is that I get them gigs all year round,” said Raeber, adding “A big thank you to all of you that helped to make Our Kids Have Talent 2012 a very successful event.” For more results and information on the competition, visit www. rarearthmusic.com.

DVOIRA YANOVSKY

Sultry and sublime, charming and playful, rising star vocalist Andrea Superstein appears at the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. Superstein embodies smoky blues and sassy swing, leading you into a fantastical world of dimly-lit speakeasies and lavish nightclubs. Joining Superstein on the journey is Victor Noriega on piano, Rene Worst on bass, and Andrew Millar on drums. Superstein’s “not-sostandard” standards and edgy renditions of contemporary tunes combine a masterful blend of jazz, Latin, and blues. “Modern vintage is how my style’s being dubbed these days,” said Superstein. “I’m doing something that’s fresh and original with a nod to the throwback years.” Superstein’s eclectic mix of songs includes the standards Love Me or Leave Me and Tonight You Belong to Me, the Eartha Kitt classic I Want to be Evil, and Radiohead’s Karma Police. With a voice described as “old school,” Superstein finds inspiration everywhere. “Inspiration comes from so many places – like Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday. Ella

Fitzgerald inspires me because she is just perfect and I love Blossom Dearie too. I also look to more contemporary artists like The Beatles and Paul Simon for the pure joy I feel when I listen to their music,” explained Superstein. Superstein’s jazz career is rooted in her childhood musical theatre performances. “Later, I sang in a vocal quartet and many songs brought to the table were dubbed jazz. I thought, ‘Wait a second! I know these songs!’ Many of them were from the Great American Songbook that I loved so much in my youth,” said Superstein. Superstein burst onto the jazz scene at the 2010 Vancouver International Jazz Festival, earning her standing room only performances, rave reviews, and a Galaxie Award nomination for Emerging Talent. Superstein’s 2011 debut CD, One Night, was received with great acclaim. Two songs from the album were selected to appear on a Women in Jazz compilation CD. Pianist Noriega is one of the finest jazz pianists and composers to emerge in the past decade. He has won several Earshot Jazz Awards including the 2006 Northwest Instrumentalist of the

Canadian indie folk-rock superstar Joel Plaskett and his band Emergency are in Salmon Arm at the Salmar Classic Theatre April 15 at 7:30 p.m. The concert is a benefit for the Shuswap Environmental Action Society and will help raise funds to help purchase the property adjacent to the mouth of the Adams River, home to the world famous sockeye salmon run. Plaskett will be on tour across the country to promote his new album, Scrappy Happiness, which features 10 songs that he has written in 10 weeks, each one featured on CBC Radio 3. It is an ambitious project that combines the best of both worlds –– using a decades old approach to getting music to the public quickly and taking advantage of new technology to communicate and interact with audiences.

Plaskett will document the process through social media with vlogs, Twitter and online chats, which will be available at www.cbc.ca/joelplaskett. Plaskett hails from Nova Scotia, where he has been a pop icon for over a decade, winning many awards including a Juno, two Canadian Folk Music Awards and numerous East Coast Music Awards, plus two Polaris prize nominations. In 2009, he opened for Paul McCartney in Halifax and in May 2011, he became the first artist ever to reach one million plays on CBC Radio 3. He writes catchy, infectious, lyrical rock and roll tunes that fill one with instant joy. Tickets for the Joel Plaskett Emergency are at Acorn Music in Salmon Arm (250-832-8669) and online at www.ticketbreak.com. For more information, contact 250-6793693 or visit www.seas.ca.

A helping hand for nature Morning Star Staff

Thanks to the Allan Brooks Nature Centre (ABNC), school children from throughout the North Okanagan have learned about everything from the life cycle of a honey bee to the habitat of atrisk species such as badgers. “In all of its programs and undertakings, the ABNC strives to educate and inform individuals of the need to change our way of life to minimize our impact on the natural world and to use our resources wisely,” said Walt Duncan, co-chair of the fundraising committee for the centre’s upcoming fundraising dinner and auction. The 11th Annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction goes a long way towards allowing the centre to continue to provide environmental education programs and displays as well as to help with its day-today operating costs. The ABNC receives minimal government funding and is supported by its members, volunteers, donors and admission fees. This year’s fundraiser takes place April 13 at the Best Western Vernon Lodge, with master of ceremonies Mike Roberts from CHBC-TV, auctioneer Kevin Rothwell, live entertainment and door prizes. The event includes both live and silent auctions, with a wide variety of items on which to bid, including golf packages to local courses, including Predator Ridge, Hillview, The Rise, Spallumcheen, Royal York and Vernon; accommodations at hotels such as The Best Western Vernon Lodge and Sparkling Hills; accommodation and restaurant vouchers at Silver Star Mountain Resort; gift certificates to restaurants including the Italian Kitchen, the Phoenix Steak House, Intermezzo, Tita’s, Friesen’s Countrytyme, Ricardo’s

Compost feeds the garden

T

he snow might be gone but the nights and even the days are still cold. However, if I wait for the sun before cleaning the yard, I might run out of time. Last week we shredded 15 bags of leaves with the old lawnmower. Even the wet stuff was easy to do. All these bags by Jocelyne Sewell the time we finished were equal to less than two full bags. It smelled so good, like walking in the forest in the fall. I will use that for mulching the plants later on. As I was cleaning and cutting the old stems and doing whatever you do in the spring, I thought it might be a good time to write about composting. There are many varieties of bins, boxes, and other containers. These structures make composting easier and improve the appearance of the compost pile. To some extent, they also protect from washing rains and baking sun. I have seen people using the large pallets which are often free. Stand them on their sides and you can make a large box out of them and cover the top

A GARDENER’S DIARY

with a plastic sheet or tarp. Composting in heaps is an extension of a process that is going on almost everywhere in nature. When a lawn is mowed and the clippings are left on the ground, they compost and feed your lawn at the same time. Of course if you save your clippings for mulching, make sure you don’t use herbicide to kill your weeds. I see bags and bags of grass clippings discarded for garbage, and people turn around and buy fertilizer for their lawn. I have one black square composting bin. The round one that reminds me of Darth Vader works very well. In the back corner of the garden, Tom has built one that is 8’x4’. It has a fibreglass roof and is tall enough for me to walk in. Next to this site, I have a new space this year which I am using for extra large composting stuff like corn and sunflower stocks, which are too big to shred. I also have one that used to be a second-hand rain barrel but it cracked and with additional holes in the bottom and the sides, it has been recycled as a composter. All the compost I made last year was ready to be used by the end of the summer. At one point, the heat in one of them registered 148 F. I turn the material every third day

or so and every time I add something. You can compost all your kitchen greens, fruit and vegetable scraps, houseplant cuttings, coffee grounds, rice and pasta, egg shells, tea bags, flowers, plant and hedge trimmings and small amounts of grass. This is called your greens (nitrogen-rich). For a good compost that will break down and work properly, you also need your browns (carbon-rich). These are your coffee filters, stale bread, paper napkins and towels, dryer lint, hair, leaves, straw or hay, small twigs and dried grass and weeds. Don’t compost meat, fish or bones, dairy products, oils or fats, sauces, ashes, pet waste, diseased plants and mature weeds with seeds. Compost is more than a fertilizer or a healing agent for the soil’s wounds. It is a symbol of continuing life. The compost heap in your garden is an intensified version of this process of death and rebuilding which is going on almost everywhere in nature. Life is leaving the living plants of yesterday, but in their death these leaves and stalks pass on their vitality to the coming generations of future seasons. Okanagan Gardens and Roses Garden Club meets April 9 at Schubert Centre at 7:30 p.m. Everyone welcome. For information, call Jocelyne at 250-558-4556.

Colouring eggs Easter Saturday? Building “nests” on the porch for the Easter Bunny to leave treats in? Easter egg hunts around the house or outside? Sunrise services or

always attending church Easter morning? How about enjoying a huge Easter feast of a ham dinner? I’ve experienced all of the aforementioned traditions at one point or another

Trim the rind and fat at the same time, leaving 1/4 inch layer of fat on ham. Make diagonal cuts along surface of ham, on the fat layer, making sure not to penetrate the meat. Now, make diagonal cuts in opposite direction, forming diamond shapes in the fat layer. Take a bowl and put all the ingredients in it. Mix ingredients well and brush over ham. As ham cooks, brush it with extra glaze every 20 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Friday is the day to dust off the tartan PETER KENDAL Special to The Morning Star

In Canada there are estimated to be more than 15 per cent of the population who are Scots or of Scottish descent. And to show their Scots connection and roots, the easiest way is to wear that very Scots symbol of the tartan. Why not join in the event observed in so many places in the world as Tartan Day, April 6? But I don’t have a tar-

tan that I have a “right” to wear, you may say. Let me put you straight on that myth. Anybody can wear whatever tartan that they choose to. Any originator of a tartan should take it as a compliment to them that you choose to wear that tartan. Ideally it should be a tartan that has some meaning for you such as one denoting a clan, district or regiment. (There are a very few personal tartans

for which you must have that person’s direct permission to wear.) As well there are tartans for associations, corporations, clergy, fashion, general purpose, national, provinces and other bodies. If there are none of these that meet your connections, then pick one that you like, and as there are more than 13,000 tartans available you will be able to find one to your liking. You really have no

CITY OF ARMSTRONG SPRING PRUNING & YARD WASTE PICKUP MONDAY, APRIL 23, 2012

reason not to wear this distinctive and colourful pattern. It does not mean that you have to rush out and buy a kilt and all the accessories. Putting together such an outfit is not a quick job nor an inexpensive one. Suggested starts to the process are a tie or shirt for a man, and a scarf, skirt or blouse for a lady. But whatever it is, big or little, wear something tartan on the day! Tartan Day is to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath in the year 1320 AD. This was the first declaration of national identity of Scotland, and it forms much of the basis of the better known Declaration of Independence of the U.S. So there was no real remembrance of such an important event until Angus Council (Arbroath is in the Scottish county of Angus) started the official Tartan Day in 2004. It quickly spread to Scots communities throughout the world. Somebody once said there are two kinds of people, “Those who were born Scottish and those who wish they had been.” Let me suggest a third kind, those who recognize their Scottish heritage and are proud of it. And it doesn’t matter how long ago it was since any of your ancestors were in Scotland!

How do I know I am getting a good price on my cabinets?

I advise my clients to settle on one design to start. Most diligent consumers do shop for the best deal & that is fine. Just make sure that each supplier does an apples-for-apples quote on the same design & all other components involved. During this process you will find different features & options from different suppliers and that is great as well. Make notes of these added features and have that supplier option them. Then once you have talked with 2 or 3 suppliers, you can make an informed decision based on a product-to-product comparison, confidence in your salesman & his industry knowledge, the company’s track record for completion, service & customer satisfaction. Add these other options to your updated design & your new kitchen will be just as you desired. Kitchens are an industry that very much lives up to the adage: you get what you pay for. Like automobiles & fine wine, cheaper is not better. Many companies use offshore knock-offs for hardware,less structure in the cabinets & inferior finishing processes to cut costs. This is where the consumer loses. It can be difficult for the average consumer to notice theses difference visually when the product is new, but they will not stand the test of time that good quality does. Ask lots of questions & make notes of the answers. This is your kitchen that you will want to enjoy for many many years. Take charge of your investment.

Q: A:

When I’m shopping for leather furniture what is the difference between bonded leather & genuine leather?

There are several difference types of leather products available in the market to help with cost effectiveness. Bonded leather is one of the newest products on the market for furniture, but has been used for wallets, bible covers etc. Bonded leather is made up of leather scraps & fibers mixed together then formed into a roll using adhesives. It usually contains only 1017% leather fibers. This process has been perfected so that in some cases you probably won’t be able to tell the difference in the feel. Bonded leather will also appear flawless with an even grain, whereas leather is a natural product & may show ‘natural markings.’ Genuine leather upholstery is made out of quality hides & is definitely more durable than bonded leather. Bonded leather has been a great addition into the market for price point, but if you are looking for a quality product genuine leather is the way to go.

It’s hard for me to feel my feelings; I’m afraid I won’t be able to turn them off! Will I?

This is a very common fear. I’ve found it helpful to think of emotions as an energy system, like other systems in our bodies (digestive, respiratory, etc.) with something coming in and something going out. Feelings are messengers, bringing you important information, and when allowed to flow, will run their course naturally and dissipate. Feeling our feelings is a physical experience, so when we shut off and do not experience them, (by fleeing, through pleasing others, achieving, working, eating, sex, drinking, perfectionism, etc), the energy system keeps operating, may create physical dysfunction, and feelings can burst into our lives unexpectedly whether or not we are ready! A professional counsellor can help you learn to identify what you are feeling and how to express what you feel appropriately.

Q:

Many of my neighbours are replacing their air conditioners with heat pumps. What is a heat pump & how does it work? Heat pumps and air conditioners are two terms used to describe the same process - moving heat energy. Whereas air conditioners move heat energy in one direction (outside), heat pumps can reverse the process, allowing them to move heat energy back into the home during the spring, fall, and even winter. Even though it may seem cold outside to us humans, there is still a lot of heat energy in the air compared to absolute zero at -273 C. With modern electronic controls and compressors, that heat energy can be captured and compressed to a high enough temperature to efficiently heat your home.

Q: A:

How can I make good marketing decisions?

One of the best ways to make sound marketing decisions is to conduct market research. There are several ways to conduct market research & they all depend on the time & budget involved. One of the most reliable, direct & helpful ways to conduct research is to creat a customer survey or questionnaire. It is something almost any size business can do & it doesn’t matter if it’s a product or service you are selling. There are many details involved when creating & implementing a questionnaire, but remember to keep your reason for the survey (the marketing decision you are trying to make) as the objective.

An optometrist is a health care professional who provides primary eye care. • Dispensing glasses and contact lenses • Internal and external eye examination • Diagnosis and treatment of eye disease • Monitoring the ocular effects of systemic disease (diabetes, hypertension, etc) • Diagnosis and training of eye movement disorders (like lazy eyes) • Emergency eye care • Surgical co-management Ophthalmologists are eye specialists who provide surgical treatment for eye disease and perform laser eye surgery.

Q:

My husband and I have started a diet, but he has lost more weight than me, and in less time! Am I doing something wrong?

A:

Most men have an advantage when it comes to weight loss. Because they tend to have more muscles than women, hence a higher resting metabolism, the weight usually comes off more quickly than in women. But don’t get discouraged. Be conscious of what you eat and focus on making good food choices…with a focus on nutrition.

Cheeky Bon Bon (center) of Kamloops Tournament City Derby Dolls attempts to elbow her way past Oopzy (left) and Banty Rooster (right) of The Candy Strykers during the Okanagan Shuswap Roller Derby Association Spring Fever event Saturday night at Hassen Memorial Arena.

The Armstrong Senior Shamrocks welcomed goalie Owen Siddall out of retirement, won a couple of games and watched alumni legends Pat Nelson and Jim (The Myth) Maundrell weave their magic last weekend. It was all part of the Shamrocks annual Ice Breaker Lacrosse Tournament, featuring the defending Thompson Okanagan champion Kelowna Raiders, Kamloops Rattlers, Spruce Grove Slash of Alberta and the Prince George Stylers. Unfortunately, the shortstaffed Vernon Royals had to pull out at the last minute, opening the door to an exciting Friday night game featuring the Armstrong Senior and Junior Shamrocks combining to make two evenly-mixed teams. All games were played at the Nor-Val Sports Centre. “This nail-biter saw Junior Rocks coaches and Shamrock alumni Pat Nelson and Jim Maundrell suit up and hit the floor,” said Shamrock president Jeff Hanley. “Both showed they still had what it takes by scoring when needed. Maundrell undressed goalie Owen Siddall and several defenders with a fake shot worthy of his old playing moniker.” Senior Rocks MVP Steve Clark pulled the hat trick and newbie Darren Kirby (a Vernon Junior Tiger last year) potted a deuce for Team Nelson in a 10-6 victory. Sheldon Nelson, Brett Hawrys, Maundrell, Brett Heitman and Tim Rice supplied singles. Owen Barker (2), Chad Pounder, Carston Schlaak and Justin Backus replied for Team Mitchell.

Pospisil hits No. 99 spot

Die Sharona (far left) of The Candy Strykers defends her position, while The Clap of the Tournament City Derby Dolls does some time in the penalty box in the Okanagan Shuswap Roller Derby Association Spring Fever Saturday night at the jam-packed Hassen Memorial Arena in Armstrong. Traxel Rose, Angel Cakes and RokC Rollya Over topped the scoring as the Strykers stopped the Derby Dolls 143-126. Harem Mahkeester was the lap queen as the Raggedy Rollers iced the Kelowna Peach Tarts 316-89.

Vernon’s Vasek Pospisil has joined hockey phenom Wayne Gretzky in the sports numbers game. Pospisil is ranked No. 99 in the latest rankings released Monday by the Association of Tennis Professionals. It is the first time the 21-year-old has cracked the top-100. The former Beairsto Elementary student, who moved to Vancouver with his family as a 12-yearold for full-time training, moved up a dozen spots after winning the National Bank Challenger in Rimouski, Que. last week. Pospisil opened the $50,000 Tallahassee Tennis Challenger Tuesday in Florida against Australia’s Carsten Ball, losing 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. Pospisil defeated Maxime Authom of Belgium to win the Rimouski event. Pospisil jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead in the opening set, but Authom was able to regroup and force a tiebreak. Pospisil saved two set points before escaping with the first set. He used that momentum to break his opponent’s serve early in the second set and held serve the rest of the way to post a 7-6(6), 6-4 victory. Pospisil earned three Davis Cup wins in a tie against Israel late in the 2011 season.

UBCO hosts hoop all-stars Morning Star Staff

It was basically the Okanagan Valley high school version of March Madness Final Four Saturday at UBC’s Okanagan campus. The top high school basketball players from around the Valley put on a dazzling show for the many people in attendance. “The up and down pace of all four games made for exciting basketball as every player on the floor looked to prove why they were selected an all-star,” said Cary Mellon of UBCO athletics. The senior girls’ was the closest game of the four, with Vernon Panthers’ coach Bobby Mitchell leading his Dark team to a 71-60 win over Lisa Nevoral’s (Kelowna Owls) Light team. Princeton’s Julia Reichert led the Dark squad with 17 points, while Princeton’s Ciara Bomford scored 15 for the Light squad. Each player was named their team’s Player of

the Game. Quinsy Leier of VSS managed five points and Panther teammate Sage Blundell had a deuce for the winners. Mary Rice of VSS had two points for the losers. In the marquee senior boys game, Cornell-bound seven-footer Braxston Bunce (Kelowna) managed 13 points, but it was not nearly enough as UBCO Heat assistant coach Matt Heyworth led his Light squad to a 102-56 victory over Kelly Broderick’s (Mt. Boucherie Bears) Dark team. South Okanagan Secondary’s Greet Gill was Game MVP for the Light squad with an impressive 32 points. Game MVP for the Dark squad was South Kamloops guard Elijah Hillis-Gold. Former Armstrong product Mitch Chapman (Owls) flushed eight points for the Light crew, which had Mitch Rouault of the Fulton Maroons on their roster. In the junior girls game,

Player of the game and leading scorer for the Light team was Charlotte Lewthwaite (Owls) with 12 points. Kianna Lalonde (Owls) was the leading scorer and the Dark team’s Game MVP with 17. The junior boy’s game was a high-scoring affair. The Dark team, coached by third-year

Heat player Ed Dane Medi, dropped the Light team 92-72. The Light team was coached by another Heat player, graduating post Steve Morrison. The Dark team won by getting contributions up and down the roster with Cooper Simson (Owls) leading the team with 21 points, and player of the game honours going to Michael Mayhew (St. Ann’s of Kamloops) with eight points. Buzz Truss of the Owls drained 22 points to earn player of the game for the Lights.

Siddall steady in net detective role Continued from A26 Other action Friday night, Kelowna iced Prince George 9-3 and Spruce Grove grounded Kamloops 13-8. “The last one was a great game to watch as Spruce Grove is a Senior B team and they are hosting the Presidents Cup this year,” said Hanley. “They showed up with two goalies and eight runners and won two of their three games. They move the ball incredibly well and didn’t seem outmanned at all.” In Saturday games, it was: Kamloops 10 Kelowna 5; Spruce Grove 12 Armstrong 10; Kamloops 12 Prince George 8; Kelowna 11 Spruce Grove 8; Armstrong 8 Prince George 6. The kilt-wearing, cabinet-making Siddall showed that he is definitely ready to take on more game-time responsibility after prematurely filing retirement papers last summer. Siddall played in all three games, starting two. Shamrocks’ No. 1 netminder Chad Pieper offered up the net time to Siddell as he was focused more on the organizational aspect of the tournament. “We are asking Owen to step up this year and handle a little more of the tending duties,” said Pieper. “So he deserved to get some time between the pipes to shake off the cobwebs. He did an outstanding job and faced some great shooters from our league and beyond.” Shamrocks leading scorers for the tournament were Kirby with seven, Clark, Pounder and Brett Logan, all with three, and Shaun Koenig and Milan Marcetta, each with a pair. The Senior Shamrocks open their regular season at home Friday, April 13 against the Shaw Cup champion Raiders (7:30).

Selects zap Kelowna Morning Star Staff

The 1999 Valley Selects, sponsored by NOR Renovations, started the spring hockey season with an 11-4 win over the host Kelowna Cobras. The Cobras struck first but the Selects responded with a quick goal from Jason Shaigec, assisted by Connor Johnston. The Selects finished the first period with four more goals by Matt Kowalski (2), Owen Beliveau and Connor Johnston. Assists went to Johnston, Brady Marzocco, Riley Swiscoski, and Austin Caldwell. The second period saw Kelowna score three goals but the Selects reeled off four, two each by Beliveau and Kowalski. D-man Grady Caton was strong in the period, rushing hard to the net. Caldwell and Marzocco, assisted by Dean Whitcomb, scrored in the third, while d-men Liam Hennig and Dawson Chase were clutch penalty killers in front of Connor Webb and Shane Meadahl. The littlest of North Okanagan Spring hockey teams, the ‘05 Vernon Kingfishers, finished its inaugural season with a 6-3 overall record and strong showing at the Kamloops AAA Pirate Challenge. The Kingfishers opened with a solid effort on Friday against top-ranked Kamloops, conceding a couple of late goals in an 8-2 loss. The Kingfishers then caught fire, blasting West Kelowna 14-4 on Friday afternoon and setting the stage for a big Saturday. The Kingfishers pulled off a thrilling 6-5 win over Langley’s BC Lightning and then, with only one game rest, stretched the eventual champion Calgary Havoc to the wire in an 8-6 loss. JJ Milne and Zachary Milne paced the Kingfishers with 10 and eight goals, respectively. Deagan McMillan (6), Zack Casagrande (2), Braydon Schwaerzle (2) and Seth Burton also scored in support of a stellar Logan Killingbeck.

Merritt Centennials’ rookie defenceman Dylan Chanter (left) of Armstrong battles Penticton Vees’ captain Logan Johnston in front of the net in Game 5 of the BCHL Interior Conference finals at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Penticton won 6-2 to win the best-of-seven series 4-1.

Vees courting Kings Morning Star Staff

For the first time in four years, the Powell River Kings won’t have to face the Vernon Vipers in the B.C. Hockey League’s Fred Page Cup Championships. Unfortunately for Kent Lewis’s perennial Coastal Conference champs, they’re stuck with the runaway regular-season champion Penticton Vees. Penticton brushed back the Merritt Centennials 4-1 in the best-of-seven Interior finals, finishing with a convincing 6-2 win in Game 5 Monday night before 2,700 fans at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Powell River advanced after stuffing the Surrey Eagles 4-1 in the Coastal championship, capped by a 3-0 win in Game 5 Monday night on the Sunshine Coast. The Vees exploded for four unanswered firstperiod goals, started at the 2:43 mark by Prince Albert Mintos’ grad Bryce Gervais. Wade Murphy, Logan Johnston (powerplay) and Joey Benik also capitalized for Penticton before Silvan Harper responded for the Cents late in the period. “We didn’t have a good start and we tried to battle back,” said Cents’ rookie d-man Dylan Chanter, an Armstrong product. “We battled all night and things just didn’t go our way. Definitely a tough way to end the year.” Goals by first star Gervais, striking again early in the second frame, and Ryan Reilly completed the Penticton assault in support of Chad Katunar, who has taken over starting netminder duties from the injured Michael Garteig, a former King. Merritt netminder Lino Chimienti allowed five goals on 20 shots before being relieved by Vernon’s Tyler Steel early in the final frame. Steel recorded five saves, allowing one goal. Johnston said the Vees were confident coming into their rink with a 3-1 series lead, and it showed in their play. “I think we were calm coming in. We knew we had the upper hand,” said the tenacious Penticton captain. “They knew they were coming into our barn. It’s a tough game for them to play and then we capitalized early so it just kind of kept the ball rolling for us. “I think we have been a bit snake bitten for the series. We have been getting a lot of chances, but tonight we had more go in like we did in the regular season so that was good for us.” In time, Chanter says the Cents will look back

on the season and call it a success. Not many pundits gave them a chance to get as far as they did. “We’re proud of what we accomplished,” said Chanter. “The team, the organization, we haven’t done this in a long time, so it’s something to be proud of. “For the guys coming in next year, it makes us want to go that much further. For the guys who are leaving this year (Chimienti, forwards Evan Stack, Chad Brears, Carter Shinkaruk, and defenceman Billy Marshall), we’ve got to thank them so much. They worked really hard this year.” In Game 4 Saturday night at Nicola Valley Arena, the Vees benefitted from a pair of controversial calls and went on to win 3-2 in double overtime. At the 7:05 mark of sudden-death, Murphy buried a rebound behind Chimienti for the winner. It looked as though the Cents had scored the opening goal when Richard Sabourin’s point shot early in the first period redirected past a screened Katunar. The linesman closest to the play indicated the puck had hit a high stick (apparently Brears’), although no other officials saw it, and the goal was waved off. The Vees’ Steven Fogarty and Merritt’s Marshall, scoring shorthanded, exchanged goals just over two minutes apart in the second period. In a slightly more cautious third period, Brayden Low pounced on a big rebound with 6:38 remaining in regulation to give the Cents the go-ahead. However, less than a minute later, Benik fired from a sharp angle and roofed a shot over Chimienti’s shoulder and just under the crossbar to force OT. The goal was controversial as the red light never came on, but referee Korey Martens immediately pointed to the net to indicate a goal. Despite a protest by Merritt head coach Luke Pierce, and a long conversation with the goal judge and Martens’ fellow officials, the goal stood. “Both calls, there’s nothing we can do about them,” said Pierce, on Monday morning. “Vees’ fans are going to say they were the right calls, and Merritt fans are going to say they were the wrong calls. That’s just sports. All you can do is hope the puck bounces your way next time.” Penticton had by far the better chances in circus time, but Chimienti was outstanding for the Cents. With files from Emanuel Sequeira and Ian Webster of Black Press.

Danny Robert recorded 20 saves for the win, while Byron Tiggelaar made 17 stops in the loss. The Buy-Low Vixens won the Nelson Blueliners Women’s Hockey Tournament for the second straight year, stopping the Spokane Stars 4-1 in Sunday’s final. Kelsey Kirkham, with the natural hat trick, on helpers from Leah Mulvihill and Vickie Taylor, paced the Vixens. Amy Irvine also scored on a beautiful saucer pass from Morgan Zoethout. Other scoring stars for the weekend were Kelsey Halvorson, Christine Bosworth, Cora-Lee Hamilton, Edeen Ramsey, Nichole Gudeit, Cheryl Meier and Cassie Bosworth. The Vixens, who won the

Armstrong ladies league playoff title a week earlier, opened the international event by slamming Spokane 8-1. The Buy-Low crew then smothered the Shuswap Storm 7-1 before brushing off the Nelson Blueliners 4-3 in a penalty-filled affair. It was tied midway through and Nelson, facing a must-win situation to reach the final, were pressing hard for the go-ahead goal but net detective Michelle Embleton was brilliant as the Vixens defended numerous 5-on-3 situations. The Vixens crushed the Kootenay Cougars 7-1 in their last game before the final. The Vixens will be play their last tournament of the season (Checkers) in Vernon on the April 13 weekend.

Gentle John Cummins? Not really

I

n an interview with one of our Vancouver Island papers before Christmas, B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins made a bold prediction that he would have party status before the general election in May 2013. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four seats, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t based on an unlikely sweep of the ChilliwackHope and Port MoodyCoquitlam by-elections, now set for April 19. He hinted he was getting calls from MLAs looking to join up, after a November Angus Reid poll showed a sudden Tom Fletcher surge to 18 per cent for his resurgent brand. We now know that one of those callers was Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen. I asked Cummins on Friday if he is still confident about three more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopeful, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put it that way,â&#x20AC;? he replied. Van Dongenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s explosive departure was arranged, with Cumminsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; help, for maximum damage to Premier Christy Clark. Van Dongen notified the B.C. Liberal caucus that he was quitting. Then, in a questionable use of Legislature privileges, he launched a broadside on Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s integrity. He cited the $6-million legal payout in the B.C. Rail sale, a decision made before Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time, and the recent collapse of a deal to sell naming rights to B.C. Place. He described the B.C. Liberals as, â&#x20AC;&#x153;an organization headed for failure,â&#x20AC;? then announced heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joined the B.C. Conservatives. Cummins then joined van Dongen at a hotel news conference across the street, as the former Gordon Campbell cabinet minister disclosed he has hired his own lawyer to dig through the roomful of paper from the B.C. Rail case once again. Auditor general John Doyle is already in court seeking access to details of the $6 million in lawyer bills, which the attorney generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ministry hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provided because it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have them. These delicate matters were farmed out to yet more independent lawyers. Independent special prosecutor Bill Berardino also spent seven years and many more millions on the B.C. Rail case, including the role of Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lobbyist brother, Bruce. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find the smoking gun now sought by van Dongen. This effort seems designed more for political revenge in an election year than to clarify the sorry legacy of the B.C. Rail sale that has already been examined through two provincial elections. Van Dongen was at the top of everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list of disgruntled B.C. Liberals. During last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership contest, he muttered darkly about not only B.C. Rail, but also the integrity of fellow Abbotsford MLA Mike de Jong. Now Clark is van Dongenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s target, with Cummins standing beside him trying to look statesman-like. Of course van Dongen drove himself out of cabinet long before Clark returned. Chronic speeding by a public safety minister is a tough sell. I asked Cummins about the reluctance of key cabinet ministers Kevin Falcon and George Abbott to confirm they are running again. His aw-shucks friendly-grandpa modesty precludes speculation, but he did allow itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;maybe a comment on the state of affairs in the Liberal cau-

cus.â&#x20AC;? Reporters started surveying government MLAs after Falcon and Abbott kept their options open for 2013. For the record, fellow ministers Terry Lake, Shirley Bond, Pat Bell, Mary Polak, Rich Coleman and Stephanie Cadieux all said they are firmly on Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election team. Independent-minded backbenchers Bill Bennett and Kevin Krueger also saluted the B.C. Liberal

banner. Randy Hawes allowed that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 65, so if he leaves it will be for the golf course. As I was talking with Cummins, B.C. Conservative advisor Randy White was assuring the Abbotsford News that more defections are coming. Cummins has people for the dirty work.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Although you have an abundance of friends with whom to share the day, there is likely to be one ineffective acquaintance who will serve as a detractor. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let him or her spoil the fun. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If you find yourself devoting too much time to trivial activities, put a stop to it as early in the day as you can. Once you get in gear, you can accomplish all your big objectives. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Even if your reasoning skills arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as sharp as they usually are, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll still be alert enough to get a reasonable amount done, and in a successful manner. It should be a decent day for you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your chances for generating substantial material returns are excellent but, of course, it will be up to you to actually do so. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just talk a good game, jump in and play. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Others will verify that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the one who is making a major contribution to a joint endeavor, yet you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK, as long as your partner recognizes it and appreciates what you do. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Trust your luck, because developments over which you seem to have little control will be the ones that shower you with the largest rewards. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Avail yourself of a new organization or club that will give you a chance to mingle and meet with

a number of influential people. Some of these big shots could become your buddies. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) When it comes to careerrelated issues, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hide your light under a bushel. If you believe that you have a constructive idea to contribute, make your concept known. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Whether or not you believe your social life is at a high point, there are some strong indicators that it is about to get even better. Someone fascinating and dynamic is about to enter the scene. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A transformation that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wishing would take place is about to happen. It will not only benefit you, but your loved ones or a close buddy as well. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You might have a hard time believing it, but if you stand back a minute you would see that it is not only the other fella who is getting all the concessions, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s you too.

YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A

Bridge by Phillip Alder THE CERTAINTY OR THE GUESS? Rudyard Kipling claimed that “a woman’s guess is much more accurate than a man’s certainty.” At the bridge table, though, a certainty -- a guaranteed line of play or defense -- is much better than a guess, regardless of the gender of the guesser. In this deal, South is in four hearts. West leads the spade queen. When East encourages with his eight, West continues the suit, and South trumps the third round. How would a guesser play from there? What would someone preferring a certainty do? With a balanced hand, South is only just worth his jump to game. But if he prefers a game-try, what

try does he make? Nothing really fits the bill. And then North would be in a quandary. Eight points is a maximum, but 4-3-3-3 is a big minus. Note that three no-trump makes easily here, but next time the spades will be 5-3. The guesser cashes the heart ace and diamond ace, crosses to dummy with a trump, and plays a diamond to the jack. Here, West wins with the queen and exits carefully with a diamond. Now South must guess which opponent holds the club queen. Maybe (s)he will get it right; maybe (s)he won’t. The declarer who prefers not to guess sees that this is a sure-trick deal. After drawing trumps, (s)he plays three rounds of diamonds.

What does West do when in with his queen? Returning a spade concedes a ruff-and-sluff. South ruffs in one hand and sluffs a club from the other. And West’s shift to a club finds the queen for declarer. It is a perfect elimination and endplay.
