Happy anniversary to Gambrinus Malting Company. The Spallumcheen outfit that supplies the finest quality specialty malts to the brewing industry has announced plans for an approximately $4-million expansion in this its 20th year of operation. “Our customers are coming out of the crops brewing industry, and that’s a section that still has good growth, so our customers are growing,” explained Gambrinus owner Klaus Jaeger of the expansion plan. “Either we have to grow with them or we can’t supply them all anymore. Very simple.” The Gambrinus Malting Company has applied to the township for a development permit in hopes of constructing an approximately $4-million warehouse and plant on its existing property for the production of malted grain. “This is a facility that produces malt from clean grain without any chemicals and/or additives,” wrote Jaeger on the application. “The finished product is sold in Canada, the U.S. and exported to other countries. “It’s a clean, non-polluting facility using only clean grain and clean water.” Gambrinus plans to construct a nearly 1,100 square metre production facility for the malted grain on a vacant one-hectare lot which would include a germination area, kiln and grain handling tower. A warehouse is also proposed for the site. Asked if he was excited about the expansion, Jaeger had mixed feelings. “In a certain way, yes,” he said. “You know, we’re in a pretty comfortable position. If you commit to that amount of investment, you have different performance pressure.” A site plan submitted to the township outlines future expansion plans. A second phase would include another plant facility that mirrors the first to be located adjacent to the north side of the phase one plant. Jaeger stated phase two is down the road aways. Gambrinus proposes to locate a septic field near the southwest corner of the warehouse to manage the effluent associated with the warehouse bathroom. The septic disposal system needs the approval of Interior Health. More than 10 conditions as stated by the township and Interior Health must be met before the development permit can be issued. Spall council voted unanimously to approve the permit as long as the conditions are met, and Gambrinus is aware of the request. “This is very exciting news because it means that one of our agricultural industrial sites is expanding and hiring more people,” said Spallumcheen Coun. Todd York. Gambrinus’ application states the new plant would employ four-to-eight people full-time. Spall-based Pinecrest Construction Ltd. will serve as project managers. Construction of the new plant will begin as soon as a building permit is issued by the township.

IMPORTANT NEWS FOR DIESEL BUYERS

Anyone who has been shopping for a diesel truck lately has probably encountered a nasty little nuisance that never existed in years prior. People purchasing a competitive diesel like the Powerstroke or Duramax are strapped with having to remember to put the D.E.F. additive in with their fuel at regular intervals and feedback says it’s quite a nuisance for most people that like to just fuel up and go. It doesn’t increase performance nor does it enhance the engine’s life in any way and that has hurt our competitors since its introduction. Now here’s the great news:

VALUE HEY T E L I WH LAST!

HUGE STRAIN ON THE CANADIAN INVENTORY ALREADY

HURRY IN TODAY!

Dodge Diesels do not use DEF! Until the end of the 2012 model year, Cummins diesels to not require any DEF additive! Yes, unlike our competitors Dodge Cummins Diesels simply require diesel in their fuel systems. If you or anyone you know is in the market for a new Diesel truck, now is the time to secure yours. We took every available order we could to ensure that our local market has every chance to secure a non DEF burning diesel before it’s too late. This is important because once we roll over to 2013 production, even the industry leading Cummins will have succumbed and our 2013 trucks will require the diesel additive. With this in mind, and with our unbeatable “NO-CHARGE” Cummins Diesel offer still in place, there has never been a better time to secure your new diesel pickup from the deal beaters at Vernon Dodge.

Sara Adams (left) gave birth to her daughter Sadie on the sidewalk in front of their 32nd Avenue Vernon townhome Saturday with the help of her sister-in-law Kylah Adams, who delivered the baby, and husband Jim Channon. ‘Sidewalk Sadie’ is a sister for two-and-a-half year old Landon. any maternity or pediatric care in school yet, let alone delivered a baby. Yet adrenaline kicked her into action, which was needed promptly as the baby was delivered in just two pushes. Kylah caught her niece, promptly placing her on Sara’s chest and then got to work tying off the umbilical cord using Sara’s shoelace. “It was only a matter of seconds and she was out,� said Sara. The event was so quick that even Jim missed the birth. “I came out with the blankets and she had already had it.� Sadie, weighing eight pounds, 11 ounces, and perfectly healthy, made her big arrival at approximately 5:40 p.m. Her unexpected delivery was made even more of a surprise to

her parents, who were pleased to discover a baby girl. In the meantime, an audience of neighbours were watching the event unfold, from a distance. Inside the Adam townhome, little Landon’s face was pressed against the window. Although he was more enthralled with the fire trucks and ambulance, Landon is thrilled with the new addition at home. “He’s really happy with his new sister,� said Jim. “He took to her right away.� The new family is most thankful for the quick actions of Kylah, whose name was appropriately added to Sadie’s middle name. Now, they are hoping the city might let them mark that memorable piece of side-

Vernon mom made an unexpected delivery Saturday. Sara Adams didn’t quite make it to the hospital, in fact she only got to the sidewalk outside of her 32nd Avenue townhome. There, she gave birth to her daughter with the help of her sister-in-law, who even tied off the umbilical cord with a shoelace. Sara and her husband, Jim Channon, had every intention of having their baby in a hospital. But as it turned out, Sadie Elizabeth Kylah Channon had different plans. ‘Sidewalk Sadie,’ as she is adoringly referred to by her family, wasn’t even due until today. So when Sara started having contractions Saturday, amidst renovating her kitchen, she was a little surprised, but thought nothing of it since they were far enough apart. She also recalled the excruciatingly long labour of her two-year-old son Landon and figured she had plenty of time before they needed to call the midwife. Before she knew it, the contractions were five minutes apart, which meant it was time to head to the hospital. “By the time we got to the front door I told Jim he had to carry me,� said Sara, 25. Jim carried his wife down the steps in front of their house and was headed for their van when they were suddenly stopped short. “‘Put me down, I’m going to have it right here,’� Jim recalls his wife telling him. Resting against the cold cement, her head in a bed of rocks, Sara could barely believe what was happening herself. “Is this actually happening right now? Am I really going to have my baby on the sidewalk?� Luckily, Sara’s sister-in-law Kylah Adams – a first-year nursing student – was at the house, as she had planned to watch Landon while they went to the hospital. “You’re going to have to catch my baby,� Sara told her. Kylah immediately ordered Jim inside to call 911 and grab blankets. “I remember looking up at Sara, tilting her head up and saying, ‘look at me, we’re going to do this, we’re going to be fine,’� said 23-year-old Kylah, who hadn’t even learned

The items are currently on display in a trophy case and while some will be preserved in the school’s archives, others will be placed in a series of time capsules that will be opened for the next 25 to 100 years.

Morning Star Staff

A portal into Enderby’s past has been revealed. Crews demolishing the old M.V. Beattie Elementary unexpectedly discovered a time capsule while removing a 1913 cornerstone April 11. “It was a complete surprise,” said Carl Cooper, M.V. Beattie principal. Among the items found inside the cornerstone were a business card from contractor Chas. Hardy, a business card from contractor Blanchard and English, Henry Delome’s signature on a piece of paper, a piece of brick with illegible writing and a chunk of leather with writing, “Opened and shut by Scotty and Frenchy, 23 May 1913.”

ENDERBY MUSEUM PHOTO

Newspapers and business cards from 1913 were found in a cornerstone while the old M.V. Beattie Elementary was being demolished in Enderby. There was also an envelope with five Enderby newspapers from April 1912 to May 1913.

Cooper gives credit to the demolition workers for finding the historic artifacts. “They took some

A new era in public transit is on course.

the 7 p.m. shift at work will be able to take the last bus home,” said Watson. On Fridays and Saturdays, the last bus will be after 9 p.m. in many cases. “Residents will be able to go for an early evening meal, shopping or go to a movie,” said Watson. “A lot of workers are done at 9 p.m. and this will help them too.” New riders’ guides have been published and the new schedule will also be available at vernon.ca. The new schedule’s goal is to encourage more residents to park their vehicles and catch

Four people are facing robbery charges following an incident in Polson Park Saturday. An 18-year-old man called police at around 7 p.m. to say he had been robbed by four people near the skateboard park. “The victim had two chains ripped off his neck, some loose change was stolen as were some other items,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. A 26-year-old man and three girls aged 15 to 17 were arrested a short time later. Molendyk said the Vernon suspects had been drinking prior to the offence. The man was released from custody, and the girls turned over to their parents. All will appear in court at a later date. Police recovered the stolen chains nearby.

Paragliders back in Okanagan Morning Star Staff

Canadian adventurer Mark Jennings-Bates will be heading back to the Okanagan this week after a successful expedition in Australia. However, rather than flying a paramotor, he’ll be arriving commercially at Kelowna International Airport early Thursday. “It has been a fantastic trip,” said the Peachland resident. “Other than not being able to personally fly for the whole expedition we reached our expectations for the trip and gained some valuable media exposure for both of the charities.” A broken prop forced Jennings-Bates to withdraw from an attempt to break the Guinness world record for continuous powered para-

Vernon’s Glenn Derouin is home after operating a paramotor across Australia. His partner was Mark Jennings-Bates from Peachland.

Penticton on May 23. Tickets are $10. For information, e-mail mark@theflight4life. com or visit www.theFlight4Life.com. “We have some epic footage and photos and the adventurous stories of our battle with the weather will keep everyone entertained,” said Jennings-Bates. glider flight. Vernon’s Glenn Derouin continued on his own, flying about 8,500 kilometres in two months. Jennings-Bates continued as part of the support crew. After starting in Townsville on Feb. 8, the team encountered some of the most demanding weather conditions Australia could throw at it, including rain in

Queensland, flooding in New South Wales, strong winds in Victoria and opposing winds in Western Australia. The current record of 8,008 kilometres held by Ben Jordan in Canada took place over an almost four-month period; the Flight4Life team has been able to complete more than 8,500 kilometres in about half that.

Derouin returned to Canada last weekend, and Jennings-Bates remained Down Under to tie up loose ends. Okanagan residents will get a chance to see and hear firsthand what happened on the world record paramotor expedition as Jennings-Bates and the Rally4Life charity present their story to Vernon on May 15, Kelowna on May 16, and

Erratic driving nets suspects ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

It doesn’t matter what time of day it is, RCMP will still find individuals who have had too much to drink behind a steering wheel. On Saturday, at 3:10 p.m., a Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP officer checked a vehicle driving erratically on Pleasant Valley Road in Armstrong. The driver was stopped by police, who formed grounds for impairment, and took the 39-year-old woman driver to the police detachment. There, officers recorded readings of four times

the legal limit on the driver, who was released from custody on a promise to appear in court. A male passenger in the vehicle was also arrested for obstruction. “He tried to obstruct officers while they were dealing with the driver,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. During the week, RCMP arrested five impaired drivers, and six people were given 24-hour suspensions, four of them alcohol-related. Four vehicles were impounded by police officers.

Off-duty officer tracks down driver Morning Star Staff

An off-duty member of the Lake Country RCMP went above and beyond his regularly scheduled routine. On April 6 at around 6:45 p.m., an officer was on his way home from work in his personal vehicle when he was passed by a black Audi in an erratic and dangerous manner. “The Audi got stuck in traffic and the RCMP officer caught up to him near the landfill (on Glenmore Road),” Kris Clark said Cst. Kris Clark, RCMP spokesperson. “The driver of the Audi pulled into the parking lot of the dog park there and a passenger, who the RCMP member recognized as a prolific offender, exited and approached a GMC Terrain.” The 23-year-old Kelowna man was known to have an outstanding warrant and, despite being off duty, the police officer stopped and made the arrest. “Back up arrived and the man was taken into custody,” said Clark. Nathan Fahl remains in custody and is set to appear in court by video April 24.

He has been charged with assault with a weapon, driving while disqualified, possession of stolen property and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

Getting disconnected

I

t’s no surprise Colin Mayes is defending Ottawa’s spending cuts. Any expression of dissent and he’d be testing those costly F-35 fighter jets himself. But what is concerning is the lack of understanding the Okanagan-Shuswap MP appears to have for his riding and the dayto-day plight many of his constituents face. Mayes fully supports the elimination of taxpayers’ funds for public access Internet sites. He believes no one should be negatively impacted because “there are Internet cafes, it’s not that expensive.” A quick survey shows that while there are restaurants in Lumby, Enderby and Armstrong with WiFi capabilities, most of them don’t have actual computers you can use. That means you require your own laptop, and it’s unlikely you will be able to Richard Rolke print something from the web. In Vernon, there’s the Downtown Internet Lounge with its 20 computers, printer and scanner. But because it is a business, there is a fee — $20 for eight hours or $150 a month for unlimited access. That’s a good deal given that you avoid purchasing a computer and a contract with an Internet provider. But even $4 for one hour could prove challenging for those on a fixed income or unable to find work. That’s why the Community Access Program has been a blessing since 1995. Federal funding has allowed about 15 North Okanagan locations to offer free Internet access. The users include the most vulnerable in our society — the homeless, seniors separated by great distances from their families, the disabled and teens from broken homes who are couch surfing. Many are working but

minimum wage means a computer at home or Internet capability on a cell phone is a pipe dream. It should be noted that the federal cuts come as the world is increasingly digital. Many employers will only accept resumes by e-mail while applications for government services and colleges are found online. For some, the Internet is the first step in reigniting relationships once cast aside, or finding a place to live in a challenging market. About 10 people a day have been using CAP at Vernon’s Upper Room Mission while the computers at virtually every library branch have a waitlist. The problem is, most of these host agencies can’t afford the program on its own ($3,600 a year for URM). Besides cafes, Mayes suggests residents go to a Service Canada centre. That’s great if you live in Vernon, but what if you are in Cherryville, Falkland or on the Okanagan Indian Reserve and don’t have a vehicle? Remember, there is no transit out there. While Service Canada has a job bank and details on government programs, you can’t sit around and reunite with an estranged child or parent over Facebook or do research on a legal or work-related matter. When it was pointed out that some people don’t have the resources to buy a computer or go to a cafe, Mayes said, “You have to set priorities with the limited dollars you have.” And that is true. But for some residents, the priorities are putting food on the table and given that the Upper Room Mission provides 200 meals a day, that is proving to be a difficult task. There’s bus fare to try and find a job or go to school, and ensuring the heat bill and rent are paid. Mayes, through the generosity of taxpayers, has unlimited access to the Internet. I wonder if he would be willing to share with his constituents?

The federal government hopes that grossing out the 16.7 per cent of Canadians who still smoke will convince them to quit. New rules are in place requiring health warning messages to cover 75 per cent of the covers of all cigarette and cigarillo packages, both front and back, by this June in the country. The hope is that people will give up their habit if they see photos of other smokers dying of cancer or pictures of cancerous body parts. Quitting rates have slowed, although smoking numbers are at an all-time low, and the government is forced to do something. But will ugly packaging make the difference? There are some who will argue that diehard smokers who know the risks – and, seriously, who doesn’t? – will still ignore the graphic messages while others argue for blank packaging. Repackaging is probably good on principle, but is not likely to make much tangible difference, because smoking is just one of those things people do even though they know better. But it’s the intangible difference that could be most important. Experts note that successfully quitting smoking is as much about the individual’s mental preparedness to kick the habit as it is about the tools or method used to butt out. Diehard, longtime smokers might already know the risks, but anything that can add a little extra push and help bring them to a state of readiness to quit is worth the effort, particularly when the cost to the taxpayer is negligible. Ultimately, the more people who can be encouraged and assisted to give up smoking the better, considering the health impacts for the individual, and the resulting health costs for the taxpayer. – Nanaimo News Bulletin

Where are all the helmets?

I

am wondering why there are so many children riding their bikes, scooters, and skateboarding without helmets. My son is 12, and we had been living up on Silver Star but recently moved down into the city. I cannot believe how many children there are in our neighbourhood and surrounding area who do not wear helmets. A lot of these children are younger than my son, who is 12. My son is one of only two kids I have seen wearing a helmet since we moved here. When we lived in Edmonton, it was the law that every child under 18 must wear helmets. Parents were fined and it was enforced. Even though we lived in subsidized housing at the time, parents feared getting fined and made sure they weren't caught letting their children ride without a helmet. It was reinforced in schools as well. And, it was rare to see a child without a helmet. So why aren't things the same way here?

A RESPONSE I agree that a safe and sustainable food supply is good for the health of people and the planet. Unfortunately, a recent article in The Morning Star contained misinformation about genetically modified (GM) crops that must be corrected. What readers should know is that all crops derived from biotechnology are subject to Canada's strict regulatory standards, ensuring that Canadians have access to one of the safest food supplies in the world. Extensive safety reviews are completed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada before any plant biotechnology is approved. Part of the safety review includes looking at potential impacts on beneficial insects like bees. Pollinator health is crucial to agriculture and our industry takes the issue of bee health very seriously. In fact the plant science industry conducts in-depth research into both pesticides and biotech crops from an early stage to ensure they do not negatively impact non-target species like bees.

Isn't there a B.C. law about having to wear helmets? Shouldn't children be adequately protected? Why do I never see any police or bylaw officer around here doing anything about it? I live by the park at 18/19th Street and

40/41st Avenue. It is a huge hot spot of full of children just waiting for the next head injury to happen. So why isn't this of any concern? I'm very frustrated about this, and I am concerned for these children who are learning that

GM crops enjoy a remarkable food safety record, having been cultivated for well over a decade and eaten by billions of people worldwide. In fact, regulatory agencies around the world as well as highly regarded international organizations like the World Health Organization, have all endorsed the safety of GM crops. In Canada, farmers choose to grow genetically improved varieties of corn, canola and soybeans, and other crops due to the numerous benefits they offer such as increased yields and environmental sustainability. The fact of the matter is that GM crops are not a safety concern thanks to rigorous regulatory standards and therefore do not need to be labeled. Biotech crops are federally regulated and have been proven safe to eat. If consumers want to avoid foods derived from GM crops, they can buy foods that are labeled organic. Lorne Hepworth, President, CropLife Canada

hearing was held at the RDNO to discuss whether ALR land near Enderby should be re-zoned to allow a trial meat waste incinerator and also if the OCP be amended to allow incineration on agricultural land. The meeting room was filled, opposition was strong, but due to a procedural error made by RDNO, the decision by RDNO was deferred to a later date. That date will never come as on Jan. 17, 2012, it was confirmed in writing that the file has been closed. For undisclosed reasons the applicant chose not to proceed. So, to the 2,755 people who signed the petition opposing incineration on agricultural land in the North Okanagan, thank you. We also must thank the multitudes that wrote to local, provincial and federal bodies. People like you make democracy work and for now the door to incineration on agricultural land in the North Okanagan has quietly swung shut.

it's OK not to wear a helmet (nobody else is anyway) and about parents letting their young children go out without any head protection. This isn't OK. We should be expecting a higher quality of care and safety for our youth, and the authorities should be stepping in and raising awareness of this and fining parents... even if it means having the child get off their wheeled vehicular toys and walking them back to their homes to get a helmet until the point is made. Ignorance of the law excuses no one. "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment.

has recently emerged of alleged fraud in the 2011 Canadian federal election. Canadians are demanding the whole truth to protect the most basic integrity of our democratic process. The NDP and Greens have joined the call for a public inquiry. The Liberals are focused on a broad investigation by Elections Canada and they have said that they are open to the idea of a public inquiry. In contrast, Prime Minister Harper is denying calls for a full and independent investigation by telling Canadians that the calls were merely "dirty tricks" in a few isolated locations. But that story can’t account for the evidence. There are reports of calls spread out over dozens of key ridings all over the country. It takes serious money and major phone number databases to target voters in multiple close ridings. Who paid? Where did the lists come from? We need to know what happened. Public pressure is the only thing

that can protect our democracy. If Harper has nothing to hide then he shouldn't be opposing an investigation. We need to hold our politicians accountable. Jason Danielson

Winter farmers’ markets could be harvesting a new crop of business locally. The Coldstream Winter Farmers’ Market will hold its last sale of the season today from 2:30 to 6 at the Women’s Institute (9909 Kalamalka Road). But along with resuming the market next winter, local farmers are pursuing a summer market in Coldstream. “The community has well received it and are asking for us to bridge the gap between now and October,” said market organizer Anita Fletcher, who is hoping to set up a summer market – same day, time and place. Fletcher, who operates an organic orchard in Coldstream with her husband Richard Enns (a Coldstream councillor), will need the District of Coldstream’s approval for a summer market at the Women’s Institute. Even though there is already a market in Vernon, Fletcher says the timing and location won’t conflict. “The timing is different because there are so many people who cannot make a morning market,” said Fletcher of the Coldstream market that catches people after work/school. The Vernon Farmers’ Market runs every Monday and Thursday morning at the Wesbild Centre – its season opener is Thursday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

There is also the potential for a second winter market in the region. Lynn Piva used to run the Coldstream market with Fletcher but is starting her own winter market in Vernon. Calling it, The Very Best of the Best Indoor Farmers’ Market, Piva plans to start the market for the 2012/13 winter season. Featuring dried and fresh fruit and vegetables, farm fresh eggs, meat and poultry, baked goods, crafts, artisans and more, the new market will run every Wednesday from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Wesbild Centre (beginning Nov. 7, 2012 and wrapping up April 24, 2013). “This new market is not going to be restricted to food vendors,” said Piva. Vernon used to have a winter market at the Army Navy Airforce, but it was cancelled during the 2011/12 season, which is when Coldstream’s winter market started. The Coldstream venture proved to be a success with anywhere from 10 to 15 vendors selling to customers from across the region, said Fletcher. “The people that we get come from Lumby, Cherryville, Lavington, Vernon, Coldstream and a couple have come up from Winfield too,” said Fletcher of customers who come for everything from potatoes, garlic and baked goods to fresh juice, flowers and preserves.

Powerhouse brings The Woman in Black to the stage KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Everything is silent except for an eerie light that filters onto the stage like smoke. The atmosphere is intense. It’s as if a nightmare is coming to life in a slow, creeping fashion. You just know that something scary is about to happen –– and then it does, or maybe it doesn’t. Like Hitchcock, local stage director Matt Brown likes to thrill and chill without hitting you on the head with all the gory details. And when it comes to psychological thrillers, like the one he is about to stage at the Powerhouse Theatre, the horror comes from those quiet, creeping moments. “My tastes live in the dark, spooky mysterious stuff. I am fascinated by nightmares, the psychological stuff that haunts you,” said Brown who returns to the director’s chair at Powerhouse after staging the hilarious Lend Me a Tenor last season. “I like playing on things that are unsettling to me, talking about and seeing the actions come to life with all the subtleties.” For those a little trepidatious to see The Woman in Black, which opens April 25 and is also Powerhouse’s entry into this year’s Okanagan Zone (O-Zone) Drama Festival, the play is not what many expect from horrors these days. There are no curse words, or blood dripping from the ceiling, or heads exploding, instead you are creeped out by the nature of the play, said Brown.

Acting out a ghost story JOSÉ LAROCHELLE /MORNING STAR

Burnett McLean plays The Actor in Stephan Mallatratt’s The Woman in Black, opening at the Powerhouse Theatre in Vernon April 25 and continuing to May 5. “It is subtle in its horror, but it is an in-depth play that offers so much. Every time I read it, I discover something new and intelligent.” Based on the 1983 book by Susan Hill, and adapted for the stage by Stephan Mallatratt, many will know The Woman in Black from the recent film version that starred Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe as lawyer Arthur Kipps. However, the stage play is quite different from the movie, said Brown, adding the theatrical version is actually a play within a play, featuring only two actors. “I first saw the play around 15

years ago. My cousin, who is a few years older than me, who I always looked up to, was in the show,” he said. “I’ve since seen the show many times –– its successes and failures.” The second longest-running nonmusical play in the history of the West End of London, after The Mousetrap, The Woman in Black follows the story of young lawyer Arthur Kipps (played in Powerhouse’s production by Chris Froese, who was the bellhop in Lend Me a Tenor). In the book, Arthur travels to a small English town to attend the funeral of one of his clients, Mrs. Drablow. It’s there, where he first

sees a young woman with a “wasted” face, dressed all in black, standing in the churchyard. Told by villagers that she brings a curse, Arthur travels to Mrs. Drablow’s former abode, the Eel Marsh House, where while sorting through her papers, he finds a box of letters, and ultimately discovers the dreadful secret of the Woman in Black. In the stage version, an older Kipps enlists a young actor, simply known in the credits as The Actor (played here by Burnett “Ben” McLean), to help him tell the story of the Woman in Black, hoping that

this will help him to move on from those events and exorcise the ghost. While The Actor plays the part of the young Arthur Kipps, Kipps plays the roles of the people he meets, and like any thriller, audiences should expect a few surprises. “I like to leave some things vague so by production time, I can put my own colour in and discover something new,” said Brown, adding his cast of two are working hard to achieve both the horror and tell a story at the same time. “I am definitely pushing them to the edge,” said Brown. “I think if I could sum up in one word the direction we are going in it would be contrast –– between the two characters and the story coming alive, what it should be and where it will go. “That’s what the nightmare is: What is normal and contrasting it with what is not normal.” Also attributing to the dark atmosphere is the play’s use of lighting and sound, respectively designed by Powerhouse volunteers Jessika LaFramboise and Bob Oldfield. “The lighting is its own character. It has as much development as the two actors carrying the whole show. Same as the sound. It is developed and has its own story,” said Brown. The Woman in Black runs April 25 to 28 and May 1 to 5 at Powerhouse Theatre at 8 p.m. with a matinee April 29 at 2 p.m. Tickets are at the Ticket Seller, 5497469, www.ticketseller.ca. The play will then be presented to an audience and adjudicator at the O-Zone Drama Festival, hosted by Asparagus Community Theatre in Armstrong, May 6.

Jazz in Canada is alive and well thanks to Mah/Goodman DVOIRA YANOVSKY Vernon Jazz Society

Mixing modern with a little tradition, hot Canadian jazz artists Brent Mah and Alex Goodman heat up the stage at the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday with the Mah/Goodman Quartet. The Mah/Goodman Quartet plays a unique mix of familiar jazz standards and modern, original compositions by guitarist Goodman and saxophonist Mah. Their compositions are widely varied, influenced by swinging jazz, bebop, classical composers, alternative rock, and classic rock. Rounding out the quartet is bassist Dan Fortin and drummer Fabio Ragnelli. Mah and Goodman are both gifted composers. One featured tune is Goodman’s The Persistence of Memory, inspired by a Salvador Dali painting. Featuring shifting time signatures, the song takes listeners on an emotional journey. Mah’s upbeat First Sun begins with an a cappella sax solo and ends with a spirited drum solo. The band also performs a variety of jazz standards, drawing upon the repertoire of writers like Thelonious Monk, Hoagy Carmichael, and Billy Strayhorn, creator of many of Duke Ellington’s hits. Known for his fiery and innovative sax work, Mah is one of Canada’s hottest young jazz players. Originally a classical student, a Sonny Rollins recording turned him on to jazz. “I will never forget the first time I went into a record shop and bought a jazz album. Listening to Saxophone Colossus

His most recent recording project is with the Chad Letye Quintet, featuring the premier piano playing of Brad Turner. Mah tours extensively in Canada and has

toured through many parts of Asia. Award-winning Goodman’s star is also shining brightly. His recent CD, Bridges, reached No. 1 on the national CHART attack and !Earshot jazz charts and was also listed in the top 10 Canadian jazz records of 2011 by the Ottawa Citizen. The CD’s success led Goodman to be a feature performer at the 2011 Montreal Jazz Festival, where his quintet was a finalist in the Grand Prix de Jazz competition. Goodman is excited to be part of Canada’s jazz scene. “I think that Canada has a diverse and vibrant jazz community that I’m proud to be a part of,” said Goodman. “I believe there’s a very high level of musicianship apparent in all parts of the country and that our top artists are creating music that holds up to the highest international standards.” Goodman just finished multiple residencies at the world renowned Banff Centre. Fortin is one of Toronto’s busiest performers, teachers, and recording artists. His bass playing is featured on Mike Ruby’s CD Play Time and Karl Schwonik’s new disc Western Influence. One of Toronto’s most creative jazz drummers, Ragnelli has performed with many of Canada’s finest jazz musicians. He has toured extensively throughout Canada with groups such as The Tara Davidson Quartet. Saturday’s concert at the Vernon Jazz Club, 3000-31st St., starts at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $20 ($15 for Vernon Jazz Society members) at the Bean Scene and Bean to Cup coffee houses.

There’s lots to explore in arts and culture next week Morning Star Staff

Earth Day may be sprouting on Sunday, but it’s also the start of Arts and Culture Week in B.C. To celebrate, Greater Vernon has a number of events that will fit under the theme, “under the umbrella.” With a new logo in place, many local arts and cultural organizations have gathered, under the Culture and Arts in Action committee, to come up with a number of events during Arts and Culture Week, and to support one another to enhance the local cultural environment –– be it arts, sports, historical, science or elsewhere. A number of local artists will be showcasing their work, using the under the umbrella theme, at the Vernon Community Arts Centre (VCAC), located at the east entrance to Polson Park. The works are on display at the Centre Gallery in the VCAC now until April 29. “We have many different works, all created by local artists. The outstanding way these talented individuals take a theme and explore it to its fullest extent is outstanding –– this show is a vibrant demonstration of how we can all enrich and boost our environment in such a positive way,” said Amanda Nemeth, VCAC administrative

Council and the Lumby Thrift Store are combining forces to facilitate the creation of the fabric banner, which is entitled “Lumby: east of the Okanagan, west of the Monashees,” and is sponsored by Arts B.C. A quilt-in to launch the project was held Thursday, where Linda Kuraoka demonstrated and helped participants

The Good Gardeners, the roots duo consisting of Kelowna’s Kim McMechan and Toronto’s Michael Peters, will open for Blackie and the Rodeo Kings at the Skookum Barn Dance in Kelowna on Friday at 7 p.m. “The show will be a reunion of sorts,” said McMeechan. “Colin Linden, one of the three members of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, produced and played on (my) latest record, Paper Sun, which was released this past winter.” Good Gardeners will perform an hourlong set of foot-tapping

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants can bring their own sewing machines (some machines will be provided) and no experience is required. Kuraoka will also be at the White Valley Community Centre Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to noon, and can be reached by calling 250-547-6637.

The session will be moderated by McIntosh and artists are asked to bring one piece of artwork that is currently in progress. “Participants’ ideas,

comments and feedback will direct the focus of the session and may or may not influence the next stage of development in the work,” said McIntosh, adding the session is a $5 donation.

The Ogopogo room at the Vernon Boys and Girls Club now has its own Ogopogina. A familiar sight to children at the Vernon branch of the Okanagan Regional Library, where it lived for the past 23 years, the paper maché sculpture of a dragon has been relocated to the Vernon Boys and Girls Club. Local artist and Headbones Gallery owner Julie Oakes originally made the sculpture for her exhibition IWWAP (I am a Woman with a Past) at the Vernon Public Art Gallery in 1987. “The dragon was one of a number of paper maché sculptures displayed alongside paintings,” she said. “The dragon was a symbol of the spark of life as it is recognized in Eastern iconography.”

After the exhibition, Oakes donated the dragon to the children’s department of the Vernon library, where it was dubbed Ogopogo. As the new Vernon library building is unable to accommodate the sculpture, Kirstie Blanleil, director of the Vernon Boys and Girls Club, was eager to adopt it, said Oakes. Chief librarian Maureen Curry handed the sculpture back to Oakes and it rode through the back streets of Vernon to arrive at its new home April 11. “It will now fly from the rafters of the Ogopogo room, a meeting space for children ranging from three years old to 12 years old,” said Oakes. “And because it has such a pretty face, the Boys and Girls Club have determined that it is a girl and so will ride the air waves of the children’s space as Ogopogina.”

The Vernon MS Society holds its 14th annual Walk/Run/Ride on April 29 in Polson Park, with all funds raised staying in the community.

Walk, ride or run for a good cause CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

The Vernon MS Society 14th annual Walk/Run/Ride hits the paths in Polson Park April 29. “People can do any distance they want and we are having a silent auction for the first time this year,” said Rene Gendron of the Vernon MS Society. The event is also an opportunity for other organizations to get pledges and take part, keeping half of what is raised and giving the other half to the MS Society. Participants can take part only to raise money for the society and all money raised is used to help people locally. “We are able to help people with MS with things that make a difference to their quality of life, like help with cleaning house or yard work. We also help with

things like wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, commodes and lifts, whatever a person needs,” said Gendron, who has MS. “We also have the office open for people to come in and talk and get information when they are diagnosed or whenever they want to. Everyone is different but there are similarities. When I was first diagnosed, I didn’t come to the office for five years. I just kept thinking that it wasn’t happening to me, but we are here for people.” The Vernon MS Society office, in The People Place, is open Monday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to noon. There are meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. The office has a library and use of a computer, as well as peer counselors available. Gendron appreciates the community

support from individuals and other participants. He points out that one year Silver Star elementary school raised $8,000 with a walk in their school grounds and kept only 10 per cent, giving the rest to the MS Society. Other schools have used the walk as a way to do community service and raise money for grad and field trips. “People come back year after year to help us and we use the money to help people with MS,” he said. This year’s Walk/Run/Ride takes place April 29 at Polson Park with registration, children’s activities, coffee and the silent auction starting at 10 a.m. and the walk starting at 11 a.m. Participants, sports teams, schools, clubs and other organizations can get more information and register by calling 250542-2241 or online at www.vernonms.ca.

Bursary helps newcomers with careers in aviation Editor’s note: the following article is from the Vernon Flying Club. On March 11, aircraft maintenance engineers-in-training Aaron Whitney and Lyle Smith were presented with their certificates as co-winners of the Len Neufeld Bursary Award at the Airport Terminal Building in Vernon. The bursary, funded by the members of the Vernon Flying Club, was raised in memory of Len Neufeld, a respected and well-liked club member who passed the fix “outbound” for the last time in November, 2008 after several months of failing health. Len’s successful career in aviation started like that of many pilots: by instructing others how to fly. This was followed by a period of “bush flying” before he joined Canadian Pacific Airlines where he flew

for many years, finally ending his career with Air Canada. He was an enthusiastic supporter of the Young Eagles venture (now COPA For Kids), volunteering his time and his aircraft introducing youngsters to the wonderful world of aviation. In addition, he was concerned with the aviation community at large and participated in air search and rescue activities through EPAir/CASARA. The bursary raised in Len’s name is awarded on an annual basis to a deserving under-training pilot or air maintenance engineer. The bursary is funded from donations made by club members and/ or from monies made from club activities during the year such as pancake breakfasts. This year, a further donation was made by the Silver Star Rotary Club.

Aaron Whitney hails from Armstrong, and has been on the course for about 12 months. Interested in all aspects of maintenance work, he has a bit of aviation history in his family; his grandfather was a Spitfire pilot during the war. He would like to work for WestJet in the future but would gladly accept any position to gain experience. Lyle Smith is from Peachland but is currently living in West Kelowna. He comes to aircraft maintenance honestly; as a child, he was always taking things apart and enjoyed working on motorcycles and vehicles. He always had a deep interest in aviation and thought that the two fields would mesh nicely. He hopes to continue his training, ultimately winding up in the field of helicopter maintenance.

By the light of the moon

N

ot long ago I was asked if I ever gardened by the moon. I said that I had tried but it was too dark and I could not see anything so I gave up. For centuries, farmers have planted by the moon’s daily zodiac signs and by its phases, and they did not plant in the middle of the night. I found an old almanac of 1992 which had an article about how to plant by the moon signs and moon phases. I did a bit more research on the Internet and found a site with Vernon planting dates if Jocelyne Sewell anyone ever wants to try this method: www.almanac.com/gardening/plantingdates/BC/Vernon Above-ground crops are planted during the light of the moon (new to full); below-ground crops are planted during the dark of the moon (from the day after it is full to the day before it is new again). Planting is done in the daytime; planting at night is optional. The time at which a seed is sown is the beginning of its life cycle. Final plant yield, as every gardener knows, is crucially affected by the conditions encountered by the seed. The effect of the phases of the moon on seed germination and growth was first studied by L. Kolisko in 1930. Using wheat, Kolisko found that seeds germinated faster and more prolifically when sown at the full moon. Experimentation indicates that seeds sown just before or around the full moon have a higher rate and speed of germination than those sown at the new moon because seeds are able to absorb more water at the full moon. The new moon gave him the most unsuccessful results. Later experiments on cress confirmed

Kolisko’s findings. Recent studies at Northwestern University, conducted by Professor F. Brown, have shown that, even under equal temperatures, seedlings absorb more water at the full moon than at the new moon. The findings lend credibility to adages that recommend harvesting at full moon. It seems plants have less water content at the new moon phase. Professor Brown went so far as to test plants in a darkened laboratory where they would have no direct access to effects of sun or moon. The plants still responded to the moon phases. I still have time this month to try at least one of the crops and I will make it as an experiment in my garden. I find it a fascinating subject but I will have to learn a lot more to make it work. On another subject, I just harvested my Jerusalem artichokes. They are not artichokes and they do not come from Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a corruption of the Italian girasole, meaning “turning to the sun,” and this large, potato-shaped tuber is really a prolific member of the sunflower family. It is 100 per cent starchless. It stores its carbohydrates in the form of inulin rather than starch, and its sugar as levulose the way most healthful fruits and honey do. It has practically no caloric value. Because of these facts, it is a good substitute for other carbohydrates on the diabetic’s menu, and in the diet of all who should restrict their starch and caloric intake. Some grow to heights of a modest 12 feet or so. Since freezing doesn’t injure the tubers, you can leave them in the ground for winter. They have a taste of water chestnuts when eaten raw. You can use them the same way you do potatoes. I did mine roasted with a bit of olive oil, sliced onions, and some fresh parsley from the garden and a sprig from my rosemary plant. Delicious. For more information, call 250-558-4556.

People, plants and pride growing together Editor’s note: The following is from Vernon’s Communities in Bloom committee. Have you noticed a special garden in your neighbourhood? Is there a business that has an especially tidy and inviting landscape? Have you been working at fixing up your own yard? Now is the time to start noticing the special gardens and landscapes around us, because the Greater Vernon Community Landscape and Garden Contest is happening again this year. Hosted by Vernon’s Communities in Bloom committee, the Greater Vernon Landscape and Garden Contest is open to residents of Vernon, Coldstream, Swan Lake, the Commonage, BX/ Silver Star and Westside Okanagan Lake (Electoral Areas B and C). Five businesses and organizations have sponsored the following categories: Vernon Landscape Centre sponsors the Business and Commercial category; Art Knapp Plantland sponsors the residential patio/deck category; Swan Lake Nurseryland sponsors the residential yard category; Food Action Society sponsors the edible garden category and new sponsor Element Eco-Design sponsors the Youth garden category. Has a residential garden or business landscape caught your eye? Do you know any young green thumbs with their own garden or is there a garden at a nearby school or community centre that could

be entered in the Garden Contest? Have you turned a piece of your yard into an edible garden? Is your tired patio getting a facelift this spring? Make sure to drop by one of the sponsors’ place of business, or download an entry form from www.vernon.ca/cib. Gardening and beautification not only makes our community a more welcoming and vibrant place to live, work and shop, it’s also good for the environment. Did you know that flowering plants create habitats for birds, butterflies and other pollinators? And that growing trees, shrubs and groundcovers helps bring down the ambient temperature in the summer heat? Let’s get down and dirty! Regardless of your expertise in landscape design or gardening, you are invited to enter this contest. The countdown is on. Deadline for entry is July 2, 2012, and judging will happen July 12 and 13. Judges will evaluate entries on overall design, use of plants, appropriate water use, and condition of plants. Winning landscapes for each category will be presented with an attractive yard sign at an awards presentation event. We know there are many special landscapes and gardens in our community. Let us know about them so we can recognize and celebrate the gardeners who are contributing to our beautiful and sustainable Vernon.

Grant assists Enderby in charting unknown territory Morning Star Staff

Enderby residents are preparing for the future. The city has received a $180,000 grant from the federal and provincial governments for its integrated sustainability plan. “This comprehensive exercise is one which embraces the issue of community sustainability, something communities throughout the land are struggling to come to grips with,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. “Our city will be treading in territory few others have explored and we will be leaders in the quest for community sustainability.” The plan will devel-

Vandals target Village Green ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

The Village Green Centre received an unwelcome paint job. Security guards at the mall alerted Vernon RCMP Saturday to 50 separate incidents of graffiti sprayed on the walls of the mall. The incident is believed to have taken place between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. Saturday. “Several spray cans were recovered and the colours used in the vandalism are black, pink and red,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk, adding that the graffiti appears to consist of the signatures “UDK” or “Carver.” Vernon RCMP and Village Green Centre security are asking anybody with any information on the graffiti to call the Vernon detachment at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Tips can also be left on the Crime Stoppers’ local website, www. n o k s c r i m e s to p p e r s . com.

op a vision for land use, servicing and development. It will also link to water conservation, climate action and asset

management. “The process will achieve this vision for sustainability through public input and com-

munity engagement through the city’s website, a Facebook page to foster discussion of ideas and thoughts,

public representation within working committees and consultation with student and senior groups and the

public at large,” said Cyr. Enderby’s integrated sustainability plan will work in conjunc-

tion with the regional growth strategy established by the Regional District of North Okanagan.

Fitness West is working out to support a worthy local cause. The local gym has opened up its doors to the public this week in support of the Vernon Women’s Transition House. Anyone can come in until Saturday at noon and try out classes at Fitness West Highway 6 across from the Shops at Polson Place in exchange for small items for the Vernon Women’s Transition House – non-perishable food items, un-opened toiletries, new socks and underwear. The Mardi Gras themed event kicked off with a two-hour zumba dance party Friday night which was once again, a huge success and a ton of fun for all ages.

“We have done a lot of family events for our members and their guests in the past as well as special weeks where we allow the public to come in and try out the classes for free,” said Dionne Loewen, Fitness West’s marketing director. “The response is always very positive and attracts so many people in that it was only natural to start taking the opportunity to give back to the community by asking people coming through the doors to start donating to a worthy cause.” See www.fitnesswestgym.com for a class schedule.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan has received written approval from the provincial government to construct a new breakwater at Lake Country’s Safe Harbour Park. The work will include a new solid wall on the south side of the harbour and refurbishment of the north wall. The south wall will be constructed south of the existing recreational fishing pier. The new wall will be constructed on steel piles, but will not have decking. The public will not be able to access this wall. The south breakwater wall will be constructed first between the months of late April to June 21, while water levels are still relatively low. Full pool of Okanagan Lake usually occurs around late June. The refurbishment of the north breakwater will take place later in the season, between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30. Those dates are between the fisheries in-stream work window. The north breakwater will be getting an extensive facelift that should improve both the look and function-

ality of Safe Harbour. Rotten wood piles, decking and batter boards will be replaced with new wood piles and treated wood timbers. The design of the breakwater, recreational fishing pier and courtesy dock were based upon the design criteria set out by the province. There is a red zone designation over the harbour. The red zone areas on Okanagan Lake are very important to kokanee productivity, for habitat and spawning. Red zone criteria for construction include the elevation of docks must be a half meter above high water mark, no batter boards on docks, no floating structures, and no piles within the foreshore spawning area. The regional district has sent out the request for proposals and it is hoped the work can get under way as soon as possible. Safe Harbour is the destination of choice for boater on Okanagan Lake in the Lake Country area when unexpected severe weather comes up the lake.

Kiss radiothon takes to airwaves Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan residents can tune in support for some special children. The seventh annual Variety Children’s Radiothon is broadcasting on Kiss FM from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Thursday. “The radiothon will be raising money for children who have special needs,” said Danielle Lucas, with Variety. “The radiothon will introduce listeners to some of these children,

as well as to the many projects and organizations Variety supports in the region.” The 2011 radiothon raised more than $41,656, all of which stayed in the Vernon area. To donate to the radiothon, call 250-550-1234. If you would like to give now, you can text the word KIDS to 45678 and $10 will be added to your cell phone bill or visit www.variety. bc.ca to make a donation of any amount.

CITY OF ARMSTRONG PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

Union HAIR DONATION reaches new deal

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 892 of the Local Government Act, a Public Hearing will be held in the Council Chambers of the City of Armstrong, 3570 Bridge Street, Armstrong, BC on April 23, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. to hear representations on the following matters: City of Armstrong Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 1693

Morning Star Staff

Coldstream union members have inked out a new deal. The District of Coldstream and members of CUPE Local 626, representing approximately 35 employees, have ratified a two-year collective agreement. The new agreement is in effect from Jan. 1, 2012 to Dec. 31, 2013 and includes wage increases of 1.5 per cent in each year of the two-year agreement. The agreement also includes minor adjustments to existing benefits and improved language throughout the agreement. ““It is our belief that the agreement reflects a fair balance between the needs of our employees and today’s economic realities,” said Mike Stamhuis, chief administrative officer.

This bylaw proposes to amend the text of the Residential Medium Density Single Family (R.1-A) zone to allow the minimum lot size of the property legally described as Lot 2, Section 31, Township 4, Kamloops (formerly Osoyoos) Division Yale District, Plan KAP83877, located at 2880 Burns Avenue, Armstrong BC, to be reduced from 420 m2 to 303 m2. This amendment is requested in order to permit a two lot single family residential subdivision.

United girls claim clutch draw Morning Star Staff

Vernon United U17s battled the host Kelowna’s U18s to a scoreless draw in Thompson Okanagan Rep Soccer League girls season-opening action Sunday. Both teams played very well defensively, limiting their opponents to relatively few scoring opportunities. Kelowna did manage to mount a strong offensive push in the second half with a dozen corner kicks and eight shots on net. Vernon keeper Chelsea Weisgerber stood tall, controlling the back end with the help of central defenders, Danika Damini and Briana Thalheimer. Vernon’s two corners were placed nicely into the box by Paige Ralston, but the team was not able to convert the crosses and test Kelowna’s keeper. Carli Tingstad’s crew got aggressive play in the middle from Ralston, Megan Prentice, Marisa Berg, and Tessa Coulthard. Forwards Emma Tassie and Dory Geelkerken starred.

U14 girls edged by Kelowna United In U14 Rep girls play, Brett Bandy’s team bowed 2-1 to host Kelowna. Vernon controlled the play for the first part of the half before Kelowna came on strong and scored when the Vernon keeper just missed on an attempt to grab the ball. Kelowna made a great solo effort to get past three Vernon players and make it 2-1 before adding an insurance tally. Reyhanna Akkurt corked a shot just wide for Vernon but United kept pressing until Cayleigh Graham scored after some sustained pressure. Maya Bandy had a solid game for Vernon, making several smart plays.

Vernon U13 boys lose close one Vernon United U13 boys started their year with a tough 2-1 loss to Kelowna. Both teams played hard in the first half with Kelowna grabbing a 2-0 lead. Vernon came out strong in the second half with Kenzel Arts Roman scoring, with an assist from Connor London.

United U12s sweep in Kamloops In U12 boys action, the Vernon United #1 rolled to a pair of wins at McArthur Island Sports Centre Sunday in Kamloops. United, coached by Kevin Mitchell, opened the season by holding off Penticton #1 Pinnacles 3-1 behind some spectacular second-half goalkeeping by Micah Martens. The Penticton keeper fumbled a cross by Finn Plummer in the early going and the ball went off Dexter Weiten to Perez Vermeulen, who finished from the goal-line. Vermeulen one-timed a cross by Plummer for Vernon’s second goal, while Seb Wenger scored off a rebound of a Vermeulen shot, to the United offence. Nick Mitchell was solid in net in the first half, making a few big saves and watching a handful of Penticton shots bang off the crossbar. Midfielder/defender Joe Eggert ran miles and controlled the ball with authority for Man of the Match.

In Game 2, United scored some beauties as they ambushed Shuswap 8-1 with Owen Miller amd Drayden Dougan each scoring twice. Weiten earned game MVP with some slick moves up front, one well-placed goal and one sweet feed to Miller for one of his tallies. Drayden Dougan supplied the goal of the match when he lept up and one-timed a high cross by Brett Hansen. Dougan blasted in a corner by Miller for his second goal. Miller picked off a goal kick, dribbled into the box and buried his second marker low, right side. Eggert, off a corner by Alex Ogunbiyi, Martens, from Wenger and Plummer, also scored. Defender Kody Kongsdorf, with his first career Rep goal, on a gorgeous run and boot in the final seconds, rounded out the United attack.

United #2 suffer tough losses Vernon United #2, coached by Roy Cooper, bowed 2-1 to Penticton #2 Pinnacles before falling 4-1 to the Kelowna United #2 in their opening games in Kamloops. Penticton opened the scoring after a good run off a throw in, with keeper Dylan Huber stopping the first shot, but Penticton grabbing the rebound. Vernon’s back line, anchored by a stellar game MVP Adam Raber, Aidan Rysen and Brendan Yakura. were very busy all game. It was a close battle in the second half and Vernon hit the crossbar before finally equalizing on a play from Rysen, to Cooper, to Chris Atkins and back to Cooper, for the header goal. Penticton netted the winner on a nifty play in the dying minutes. There was good back and forth action in United’s second game with Kelowna converting in the 25th minute on a rapid-fire play. Huber was sharp as Kelowna outshot Vernon in the first half. Kelowna went up 2-0 in the second before Vernon responded with a long kick from Ben Purvis, to Mika Burns, to Cooper, who sent in game MVP Yakura, who found the far bottom corner of the net. Huber again recorded some great saves as Kelowna scored twice and pressed hard against United’s fast and gritty fullbacks Declan Stevenson, Raber, Yakura and Rysen.

U11 boys split season openers United U11 #1 boys split their opening games in Penticton, stopping the Kamloops Blaze 3-0 before falling 2-1 to Kelowna. Strong offensive performances were turned in by Noah Podolski, Isaiah Ondrik and Ian Oliphant, while Ty Ogasawara and Saajan Klair did a great job of passing up and were instrumental in Vernon’s offence. Goalies Noah Podolski and Tane Purcell were awesome in sharing the shutout. Game 2 saw Kelowna register a late goal for the victory. Hunter Housego enjoyed a strong two-way showing, while Cole Johnson had some good scoring chances. Defensively, Purcell, Gerritt Van Soest

The United U11 #2 also split a pair of matches, starting the day with a thrilling 4-3 loss to the host #1 Pinnacles. Penticton led 4-1 at the break with Zack Smith scoring for Vernon on a nifty pass from midfielder Lucas Wood. The Vernon boys mounted a comeback in the second half as Smith scored again, volleying a corner by Liam Glennon. “Liam placed a perfect ball between two defenders for a great assist and Zack drove it in,” said coach Sean Smith. Five minutes later, Tanner Wiebe made things interesting by bouncing in a shot from outside the 30-yard line. Defender Grahame Tassie was outstanding. In Game 2, United got off to a fast start and didn’t look back defeating Kamloops Blue 8-1 behind six goals from Smith.

Glennon and Sheldon Yakura each tallied singles in front of a superb Man of the Match Logan Quibell.

U11 girls uncover strong results Vernon’s two U11 girls development soccer teams came out of their season openers with some well-rounded results. United #1 drew 1-1 with Shuswap as Kelsey Carriere scored, and then tied Kamloops 2-2 on goals from Makena Kersey and Danica Ariano, and assists from Nadia Smith and Julia Thompson. United #2 team had an impressive start to their season with a 4-0 win over Penticton, with goals from Hannah Miller, Elena Gaskell, and Olivia McLennan. A hard-fought match against Kelowna showed a different result, however, with Vernon down 4-0.

Harlequins ground Jackals 32-19 Morning Star Staff

For four years, the Penticton Harlequins figured the Vernon Jackals were dressing in a phone booth. The Jackals appeared to be super heroes as they found different ways to beat the Harlequins. Well, the Harlequins finally brought the Jackals back down to Ground Zero with a 32-19 Okanagan Rugby Union victory Saturday at Grahame Park. Mitch Davis supplied a pair of tries, both in tight, for the Jackals, while Josh Cooper added one and captain Rob Miles was 2-for-3 on conversions. “Congratulations to Penticton on their victory over us,” said Vernon veteran Mike Scheller. “They were simply the better team, and while the match was close, they held the majority of the REGIONAL DISTRICT OF play.

Tigers rock Richmond Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Re/Max Tigers and Armstrong Shamrocks invited the Richmond Roadrunners to the North Okanagan to help in their pre-season evaluations. Both local teams saw plenty of positives despite different results versus the Roadrunners. Cody Nass supplied 5+3 as the Roadrunners opened up their swing Saturday night with an 11-7 win over the Shamrocks at Nor-Val Centre. Jordan Orr counted 5+1 as the Tigers rocked the weary Roadrunners 16-9 Sunday morning in Armstrong. Connor Martyniuk supplied six snipes for Richmond. “Overall, the coaches weren’t looking at the outcome of the game, but rather the working parts of the game in total,” said Vernon head coach Myles Brumpton. “We wanted to see how the boys responded to some of the new systems we are working on, how they adapted at game speed when set plays went sideways and how composed they were when working in traffic.” The Tigers only had 13 runners and Brumpton was impressed with their gritty performance. “Although there were some great individual efforts from some of our guys, I prefer to look at the game from a team perspective and the sum of all its moving parts. I certainly noted some real upside in our team game, and at the same time we have some tweaking to do since it’s early in the season (Tigers open the regular season April 28 at home versus the Shamrocks)” Nolan Frame pocketed 4+1 for the Cats and Jay Seaton earned 3+2. Braden Barr added 2+2 and singles went to Austin Lewarne and Ryan Sarazin. Craig Bigsby collected five assists. “We want to thank Richmond for making the trek to the Okanagan and we tip our hat to them for their efforts in playing two games in less than 24 hours this early in the season,” said Brumpton.

Spencer Bromley bagged 2+3 for Richmond, while Nass produded 1+3. Matt Kolb of the Re/Max crew and Richmond captain Kris Briggs had a third-period fight. On Saturday, Jesse Patterson added 2+2 for the Roadrunners, who got 1+3 from Spencer Bromley and other goals from Corey Tasaka, Spencer Holtan and Connor Martyniuk. Anthony Bayer bagged three helpers. Brett Hawrys and Cole Seidel each scored twice for the Shamrocks, while Owen Barker provided 1+3 and took on Matteo Serka in a third-period fight. Daniel Peterson and Drew Hassald also fired singles. Armstrong led 4-2 after one period, while Richmond pulled ahead 9-5 after two. The Roadrunners held a 56-32 shot advantage. Hassald battled Matt McPhedrian in the firs period, while Dylan Bilanchuk of the Irish faced Alan Wilson in the second period, to round out the fight card.

Celtics tip Taco Bell Morning Star Staff

up Roland Reidstra and Rueben Cervantes took the ensuing penalty and blasted it over the crossbar. Just before the half, Cervantes was red carded for pulling down Al Murphy from behind. With the extra man, the Camels eventually wore off the rust and began to move the ball around and that resulted in Chris Reeves feeding a ball to Gord Howard, who beat a defender and slotted it into the far corner to tie the game. Al Gee had a strong game in midfield and fed Reeves for the winner five minutes later. The Humpbacks kept pressing with some nice combination play by Dan Zieske and Rick Raber, who got the ball to Gee, who again fed Howard for the final tally. The Silver Stars defeated Salmon 2-1 in a rainy, cold season opener. Gary Saunders opened the scoring in the 25th minute when he stripped Salmon Arm keeper Al Bensmiller of the ball after a weak back pass. Saunders ran the ball in to the open net from 12 yards out. Rick Danyluk scored on a penalty kick at 58 minutes when Andrew Whiston was called for a slide tackle in the six-yard box. Salmon Arm scored on a late scramble. Bosman Accounting of Vernon beat Lake Country 1-0 at Beasley Park with left winger Guy Paulsen feeding Carl McLennan, who took the ball and lasered the ball in with his weaker left foot from 16 yards out. Jim McEwan, Chris Nielsen, Tom Ouchi, Bob Fleming and Alex deBoersap had strong showings and Pete Richter earned the shutout.

The Vernon Celtics started their second season in the Okanagan Men’s 35+ Soccer League with a 2-0 win over Kelowna Taco Bell FC Monday night at Marshall Field. Loaded with four new recruits, the Celtics started the game in a high tempo, overpowering Taco Bell. The first goal fell within five minutes when Bryan Schenker dribbled to the end line and found newcomer Rodney Goodchild, who came in front of his marker and beat the keeper with a low shot. Several chances followed until the 30th minute when Geoff Straight found newbie Jesse Knight who calmly finished off a solo run. Mike Moorlag did not have to make a single save all game, thanks to strong defence by Jason Beck and Ryan Sharpe. The newly-formed Kal Tire bowed 3-2 to Kelowna’s Select Your Tickets. Aaron Deans opened the Tiremen scoring early in the first half with a brilliant strike after some great ball movement by Michael Arding and an accurate cross from Darren Nobrega. Tire went ahead later on a PK that was saved by the Selects keeper but the rebound was pounced upon by Simon Woodward. The Selects equalized and won on a controversial late PK. In men’s 45+ play, the Vernon Camels iced the Big O Tire/Turn Key Ogopogos 3-1 at Marshall.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) A social contact you’ve established could be of big help concerning something that is occurring in another area of your life. She or he will be just the person you need to help out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Drop everything and take care of something important that only you can bring to a successful conclusion. It probably involves a domestic affair. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A perfect opportunity to bring out into the open a critical matter that you’ve been reluctant to discuss may present itself. Don’t waste this chance to unload.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) When making an important agreement with another, be sure to scrutinize all the fine print.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder THE TOUGH DEFENSE TO WIN FOUR TRICKS Dale Carnegie said, “There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say, and how we say it.” There are four tricks, and only four tricks, that are needed to defeat a contract of four spades. East needs to bear that in mind when defending in this deal. West leads the club two. South wins with his ace, plays a spade to dummy’s ace, and returns a spade. East is in with his king. What should he do now? East knows that West

led a singleton, because he would have led the four from doubleton fourtwo. And when a player knows his partner has a void, there is an automatic reaction to give him a ruff. But East should pause for a moment and ask where the other two defensive tricks will come from. The play cannot go club ruff, heart to the ace, second club ruff, because West has only one trump left. The defense must take two heart tricks. This is easy if West has the king, but in case he has the queen, East should immediately shift to a low heart. Yes, declarer might rise with his king and win an overtrick, but that is unlikely. He will probably

conclude that if West had queen-high hearts, he might well have led the unbid suit; but with acehigh hearts, he would not have led it. The main point, though, is that East must make declarer guess, not give him the contract on a silver platter.

Q: A:

What causes stress?

There are many causes of stress such as: • Loss - of a job, family member, loved one, relationship, home, finances • Gain - of a new job, home, family member (engagement, marriage or birth) • Illness – of oneself, a close friend or family member • Pressure – within relationships, work or environment. The degree of stress we experience depends upon our attitude, lifestyle, self-supporting habits, support systems and reaction to change. A job loss may cause one person to feel stressed, anxious or depressed while another person may remain calm, optimistic and healthy. Stress Wisdom empowers people to handle stress well.

Q:

I am a first time home buyer and have heard that there are programs available to help with purchasing my first home. Can you help to explain these to me?

As a first time buyer in BC, you are eligible to waive the Property Transfer Tax on your first home purchase of up to $425,000. There are some requirements such as the home must be your own residence; you must have been a resident of BC for at least 12 months and a Canadian Permanent Resident. The property itself cannot be more than 1 acre and you must be financing more than 70% of the purchase price. Your lawyer will assist you with completing the necessary qualifications. You are also eligible to withdraw from your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) up to $25,000 that is tax free when repaid to the plan over a 15 year repayment plan. It is important to know that the repayment to the RRSP will not be required until after the first two years of owning your new home. You can also claim a $750 Grant from the Federal Government that is claimed on your Income Tax Return for the year you purchase the home and is to help you to be reimbursed for legal/closing costs.

Q: A:

How does feng shui help my business?

Feng shui will build a solid foundation for your future success. In business planning, I am your most valuable asset. I can identify the space you should lease & design a floor plan to suit your needs. I will optimize your wealth income ability & target staff performance so that everyone works towards your goals. Ask yourself this: • Who is the first point of contact for your clientele? • Who handles the sales? • Who keeps your books? These are key positions, & your staff should have strong support to perform at their best: do they? If you are ready to expand your business, improve your bottom line or launch your new venture, then you are ready to talk to me. Your company vision is precise. My training is even more so. Want success? Then let’s go get it!

There are several reasons why a child would struggle in school. Trying to label the child as having a learning disability challenge, problem or simply a riddle is perhaps the wrong focus, though. The bigger question should be: What can I do to help my child succeed in school? Learning ‘challenges’ are usually inherited and do not just ‘go away’ on their own. One good option, then, is to find a program developed specifically for children who struggle in school (for whatever reason) and enroll your child in that program. Potentials offers a program which helps develop control and organization in the brain, which makes learning easier. Using a whole-brain method of teaching strengthens auditory, visual and tactile ways of learning. Children who have struggled in school catch up to and surpass grade level, and go on to succeed. If you want to learn more about this specialized program, visit our web site and/or call Ms Leanne Topham for more ideas.

What can I expect at my first hearing evaluation appointment?

At your scheduled evaluation appointment, for which you should plan approximately one hour, you will meet your hearing consultant. They will review a questionnaire with you, concerning your history, your hearing health and how you feel about your communication ability. You will then undergo an examination of your ear canals, checking for ear wax and ensuring your ear canals are clear for testing. The hearing test itself involves listening for various tones and word tests to determine your hearing ability. Following this assessment, your professional will review your individual results in detail and discuss solutions that are best suited for you. Early detection and treatment of hearing problems can have a positive impact on your quality of life.

Q: A:

What is meant by the term ‘mind-body’ counselling?

The term “mind-body” is the reflection of the fact that there is a direct relationship between our emotions & how they affect our body. Science has now proven that there is a direct relationship between our bodies & our emotions. In the 1979 movie “Manhattan” Woody Allen’s character made the statement “I don’t get angry, I grow a tumour instead.” Suppressed unhappiness, trauma or unresolved issues can manifest symptoms of illness or make existing conditions become worse. We all need someone to listen to us from time to time. Whether it is traditional counselling methods or relaxation using hypnosis (or a combo of both), it will help to bring you back into emotional balance. A place of peace and calmness that will allow you to bump up the quality of your life. Choose to change how you think & improve your level of happiness.
