Artisan Ingrid Mueller is ready for the 37th annual Creative Chaos which opens today and runs until Sunday at the Vernon Recreation Complex.
Creativity abounds at Chaos RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Crafters, and crafters at heart, are eagerly awaiting the doors opening at Creative Chaos. Western Canada’s largest summer craft show officially begins at 10 a.m. today and large crowds are anticipated at the Vernon Recreation Complex. “People really look forward to it,” said director Joanne Horvath. Between 10,000 and 20,000 will pass through the doors until the 37th annual event wraps up Sunday. And more than 200 vendors will be on display in the curling club, auditorium and Priest Valley Arena. “The furthest away is from Ontario and there are some vendors from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta,” said Horvath. “They also come from all over B.C. and there are a lot of locals.” Among the locals are Marilynne Larson and husband Val, who produce handmade puzzles, hats and
other items. “It’s the biggest show we do,” said Marilynne. Preparing items for sale is a yearround process. “It doesn’t happen overnight,” said Val. Ingrid Mueller, who makes pottery and jewelry, is looking forward to another offering of Chaos. “People come from all over and it’s three days to showcase my work, which is nice,” she said. With so many people in town, the local economy gets a significant boost from Chaos. “The motels and restaurants really benefit,” said Horvath. As do those people in need. Bins will be located at each entrance to collect non-perishable items for the local food bank. The Salvation Army’s kettles will be at the auditorium and curling club entrances. “They have collected an average of 5,300 food items and $2,145 over
just the last six years,” said David MacBain, with the Salvation Army. “Last year brought in a record 6,100 items and $4,200.” Along with the craft displays, Chaos will host a food fair and an array of entertainment, including the Vernon Old Time Fiddlers, the Desert Moon Dancers, the Black Velvet Band and Sentimental Journey. Lavington Elementary students will also have art showcased in the food fair. There is no admission charge for Creative Chaos and the hours of operation are today from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, go to www. creativechaoscrafts.com. “Everything is handmade,” said Horvath. “There is pottery and fabrics covers a whole range of styles. There is metalwork, woodwork and jewelry. It goes on and on.”
A suspect in two Burnaby shootings who was shot dead Wednesday in Maple Ridge is a former Vernon resident. Angus David Mitchell, 26, died in hospital hours after being surrounded by police in Maple Ridge where a full-fledged gun battle took place prior to Mitchell’s arrest. “We are aware he grew up in this particular area,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “We have had his name show up here but he was not charged with any offences in relation to anything that has come through our office between 2010 and early 2012. I would not label him as well- Angus Mitchell known to police.” Police issued a warning about Mitchell early Wednesday asking anyone who knew him or had conflict with him to be on guard. Mitchell was spotted in a van in Maple Ridge at 11 a.m. Wednesday, less than an hour after the RCMP’s alert. The van was kept under police surveillance after Mitchell was confirmed to be inside, and streets were then shut down. Police tried to talk Mitchell out of the vehicle to no avail. Mitchell shot at officers with a high-powered hunting rifle but did not attempt to flee. No officers were injured. Police allege he shot a 51-year-old Burnaby man in front of his home May 29. The man survived. Mitchell is also a person of interest in a double homicide in Burnaby at a sushi restaurant on Sunday. Molendyk said Mitchell still had family ties to the North Okanagan. “The family is now dealing with a very tragic situation,” said Molendyk.
Arrest made in robbery Morning Star Staff
There’s been a significant development in a recent robbery at a local restaurant. On May 24, police officers converged on a Cherryville residence and arrested an individual in relation to a May 23 theft at the Fruit Union Plaza Subway in Vernon. “Our officers were acting on information they received both from the images on the store video as well as witnesses,” said Gord Molendyk, Vernon RCMP spokesperson. The suspect was taken into custody at the home without incident. A lone woman entered the business at about 2 a.m. and demanded money. She then jumped the counter and left the scene with an undisclosed amount of money. The 41-year-old clerk was not injured during the robbery. Amy Young, 26, with an address out of Salmon Arm, remains in custody. She will make her next court appearance June 27 and answer to the charge of armed robbery.

â€œWe want to see what the province is going to do,â€? he said. In May, the Ministry of Community Development announced plans for a provincial athletic commissioner. The agency would regulate and supervise professional boxing, kick-boxing and mixed martial arts in B.C. Itâ€™s not known when the provincial commission will be operational. Coun. Juliette Cunningham defends the cityâ€™s actions. â€œBecause the province is taking it on, we thought we would wait,â€? she said.

B.C.â€™s leading union leader is demanding the government treat public employees fairly. Jim Sinclair, B.C. Federation of Labour president, met with health care workers during a stop at Vernon Jubilee Hospital Wednesday. â€œPeople are concerned the government will give them more zeros and thatâ€™s not acceptable to them,â€? he said. â€œThey know they canâ€™t keep falling behind.â€? Sinclair says health care workers are expecting at least a cost of living wage increase and the prospect of job action depends on the government. â€œIt can be avoidable,â€? he Jim Sinclair said of a potential contract dispute. He admits, though, that the Liberal governmentâ€™s current poor showing in the polls could also play a factor in negotiations. â€œDesperate governments do desperate things sometimes. They could attack the people who deliver these services.â€? Sinclair is also aware of over-crowding at VJH but he believes the focus needs to be on the day-today duties of staff. â€œEveryone is working hard in hospitals to make them work. We have one of the best health care systems in the world,â€? he said. â€œCan it be better? Absolutely. But the people working here are delivering excellent care.â€? Sinclair also focused on a current conflict between the B.C. Nurses Union and the Hospital Employees Union over members. â€œNow is not the time to have an internal fight. Now is the time to stick together,â€? he said of current economic conditions and pressure from the government.

Police seeking witnesses Morning Star Staff
Vernon RCMP are asking for witnesses to come forward in an alleged case of reckless driving Wednesday in Coldstream. A small red 2003 Dodge SX car took off driving in front of a police dog handler going to a disturbance call at 3:30 p.m. near Kal Lake Store. Police say the vehicle would not pull over when the officer activated his lights and the vehicle sped up and began driv-
ing on the wrong side of the road into the path of oncoming vehicles. The officer pulled back and followed from a safe distance, but lost the vehicle after it turned on Aberdeen Road. The owner of the car was located a short time later and spoken to. Police are asking for anybody who saw the Dodge being driven between Kal Lake Store and Aberdeen Road to call them at 250-545-7171.

K i n d a l e Developmental Association in Armstrong is naming its soon-to-be-completed new home in honour of its founder, Lydia Boss. Gary Boss, Lydia’s 56-year-old son, had eight simple words to tell the crowd of more than 100 gathered for the ground-breaking ceremony to signal the start of construction of the two-storey building on Patterson Avenue. “This is a good way to remember her,” said Gary, joined by his brother, Roy Boss, for the ceremony. “I loved my mom.” When completed, hopefully by the end of the year, the Lydia Boss Centre will be a one-ofits-kind building in the North Okanagan.

Sue Phillips, chairperson of Kindale’s board of directors, said Lydia Boss did so much for people with developmental disabilities in Armstrong that the new building will position Kindale to carry on evolving for decades to come. “We’ll be able to meet the needs of the individuals and families we serve faster and more efficiently,” said Phillips. Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper said the new building will be a welcome addition to the downtown core. Kindale currently owns the Bechtold Centre which is on the Patterson Avenue lots and will remain there. The centre houses the Kindale Thrift Store on the main level, a major money generator for Kindale for charitable and non-profit enterprises. The lower level features a Kindale community living centre. Kindale’s administration offices, currently housed in the Century 21 building in Armstrong, would move to the newly constructed building.

Hearing impaired garner support RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Improving communications for the deaf has the support of Coldstream. Council wants the Canadian Radio Television Te l e c o m m u n i c a t i o n s Commission to ensure there is permanent video relay service for deaf and hard of hearing citizens and those they communicate with. “It’s incredible in this day when they can provide a service people really need, they aren’t providing the service,” Gyula Kiss said Coun. Gyula Kiss. VRS consists of a deaf person signing via a videophone linked through the Internet to a sign language interpreter. The interpreter then relays the conversation vocally to the hearing recipient. Telus provided the service on a trial basis for 18 months but funding ceased in January. Coun. Maria Besso opposed writing a letter of support because she says council doesn’t have sufficient information on why the service stopped. “It seems like it could be very labour intensive for a small group of people,” she said. The district decided to take action after a presentation from Arlene Brenner, who has been deaf since birth. She has been unable to communicate with
people around her, including her mother, since the video relay service ended. “You have all of the communications, I don’t,” she told council. The situation has been critical since her mother went into the hospital. “There is no way I can contact the doctors or nurses,” she said. “They can’t inform me if something happens to my mom.” Brenner says the other problem is she is unable to contact 911 if there is an emergency like a fire,

am officially homeless as of today. We hand over the keys to our surprisingly affordable Bella Vista mansion, but have yet to settle on a new home. You know what is worse than moving? Knowing you will have to move your furniture, clothing, dishes, tools, pets, hockey card collections and all your other worldly possessions a second time. It’s like a make-work project. We had a very quick turnaround (a little Graeme Corbett more than three weeks) on the sale, so life has been kind of frantic at the Corbett household of late. We decided that, rather than settle on a temporary solution, we want to take our time in finding a property that will suit our needs well into the future. The good thing is, with a relatively slow market, there appears to be plenty of options out there. We should know – it took more than a year for our place to sell. At one point last year, five out of the eight houses in our cul de sac had for sale signs pitched in their front yards. Almost as agonizing as the move itself was the “staging” you are supposed to do to help sell your home. We de-cluttered and made our living space neutral, we made sure it was tidy whenever realtors brought viewers by for a showing (I could die happy if I never have to vacuum again).
I even brought my dog to work a couple times so she wouldn’t terrorize the visitors. Despite all that and probably close to 100 showings and numerous open houses, it took 12 months to get the deal done. Turns out third time was a charm for us, as it took three offers before we sold. So when the third one came around earlier this month, even with the short move time, it was reasonable enough that we jumped on it. And here we are, ready to move a cat, dog and all our “stuff ” into Terryn’s parents’ garage for the foreseeable future. I can think of worse things than spending part of my summer on Okanagan Lake. And given that we are looking to get a hobby farm out in the country, the commute from Westside Road will give me a taste of the extra miles I will be racking up. Our reasons for moving are simple – Terryn needs her own space to expand her herbal care product empire, and we want more land so we can learn to become more self-sufficient. The trick seems to be finding a place that offers the space, outbuildings and other amenities we require, while balancing the price point and commute to Vernon. We originally started looking at places when we listed our house last year, but quickly put an end to that when we noticed the number of people who arranged showings at our place, but had no real intention of buying. In our case, we simply didn’t have means to make a serious offer until our place sold. However, that is all behind us now, and we can focus on moving into a new chapter in our lives.
Get ready to put your work tools down and spend more time with your kin next February as the B.C. government announced the latest statutory holiday, Family Day, is scheduled for the second week of the month. It’s also the date MLAs Vicki Huntington, Bob Simpson and John van Dongen say is too costly for the economy. They believe the government is wrong to offer the people something plenty of other parts of the country already enjoy — a muchneeded break in the winter. Van Dongen says the holiday will not create a single new job. Was it supposed to? It will cost the business community an estimated $62 million and place increased pressure on budgets, they say. Well, that’s assuming everyone stays at home. But what do many of us do over a long weekend? Those keen on hitting the malls will do just that and plenty of retail operations entice them to shop with keen price promotions. Some of us will dine out, ordering something sumptuous, and hopefully tipping well when good service is provided. And some outdoor-minded folk may get away from it all and head to the slopes of local hills. But the biggest return from all of this isn’t the money we spend. It’s the theme of the holiday that should pay dividends here. It will provide families stressed by the hectic pace of school, work and other activities the opportunity to spend some quality time with each other instead of trudging through the shortest month with a longing eye towards the first other holiday at Easter. No, British Columbians need a break. And one with family makes sense. — South Delta Leader

EDITOR: GLENN MITCHELL
Fearful for future of education
have been teaching drama for 17 years and I love what I do! Theatre has the power to initiate conversation, to deepen our understanding of the human condition, to create compassion in place of prejudice, to change lives, among other things. I began teaching in 1995, when the public education system was adequately funded, when libraries were open full time, when there were ample CEA’s to provide assistance to special needs students who were being welcomed into integrated classes, and there were enough desks and textbooks for each student in the class. I fondly remember classes of 18 – 22 students where the learning environment was focused, highly productive, and safe. Staff rooms were full of smiling, laughing, energetic teachers who enjoyed spending time together. I have taken two groups of students on field trips to New York, and too many busloads of students to remember to Calgary, Edmonton, Spokane, Vancouver and Kamloops to see professional theatre – many who had never had an opportunity to travel outside of their community before. I have directed dozens of productions where students become stars, and none of them have ever had to pay one red penny to be involved in the joy of becoming part of such a creative team – dare I say “family.” I have always kept ticket prices within the means
of our lower income families so all students can have family come and see them shine on stage, or know their son or daughter is part of the back stage magic. I have spent far more time with “your” children than with my own during the school year. I have 20 years left in my career. However, I’m fearful of the future of public education. I am not going to spout the rhetoric of either side of the BCTF vs The Government battle. Those of you reading, who want to know the facts, will find them. However, in this time period where we have been asked to “cool off ” I find that I’m only heating up! I am proud to live in Canada. The Canada that I live in is a democratic nation. We are responsible for electing our leaders – locally,
OPEN MORE DOORS I am writing this letter because I have become frustrated with the lack of support there is for learning disabled people. I want to know what the government expects me to do for a job. Since they changed things around on me. Everyone who has special needs is struggling to make ends meet. Some of us are single and have $0 employment income. The disability cheque from the government is not enough to live on. If we do work we get less. What does the government expect me to do for a job? I have 20 years of experience working in daycare, now I can't get a job without having a licence. I did find a college that is ECE recognized in B.C. So I got all my papers filled out sent money
provincially and federally, from the quilter’s guild to the highest governing bodies. We vote. We complain when things don’t seem right and we live under the seemingly unjust rules until we vote again and hope for change. The BCTF is a democratic body. As a body of teachers we voted on our reaction to Bill 22. With a majority (albeit lukewarm) of 73 per cent the mandate falls that we – the democratic body of teachers in B.C. – have made a decision to withdraw all of our extra services with the hopes the public will recognize all the extra that we do, and will speak up to help us help our very deserving students get the quality public education they are entitled to by our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
(that I don't have). Week into the course found out that this would be too hard for someone who has a learning disability. So I dropped out and got half of my money back. I know I can work in childcare field that is not the problem but what is the problem is doing the course that will allow me to. Now I am sitting here trying to figure out what other jobs I can do and what is needed to be done. Why isn't there more help or training for people like me? I was good at my job and have 20 years experience and have proven I am capable of doing it even if I am learning disabled and not capable of the perfect spelling and grammar that is required for me to get licensed. We with all types of special needs are humans
I have done what I’ve been asked. No extra-curricular shows, no trips, nothing beyond my teaching duties and class performances where my time is compensated. The Provincial Drama Festival in Vancouver was cancelled and our beloved threeday Rotary Goodwill Shakespeare Festival in Summerland quickly followed suit. Luckily, the drama teachers in Vernon all came together with the founder of the festival from Summerland and we have put together a one-day bell-to-bell Shakespeare festival to enrich the drama education of our students, while still operating within the boundaries of the no extra-curricular mandate. I was organizing a trip to the Ashland, Oregon Shakespeare festival for next October, but I pulled the plug. No fundraising. No extracurricular. No trip. Since spring break I’ve been deeply unhappy – everyday! I don’t believe this is the way to win our fight. But it is the only legal option we have left. As a member of this democratic nation, I am doing what I’ve been asked to do. I love my students – deeply! And, I’m sure I’ll love all the students I will meet over the next 20 years, if the drama program survives the next round of cutbacks by our government, and if I have a program to save! Lana O’Brien
and have rights to live on the same planet as any other people. Government stop taking away opportunities from people like me and others count on. Open more doors to help us and that we don't need to go in debt. I want to work to support myself, have been doing so for the last 20 years, but now thanks to the government I am no longer able to. I want to work and not be forced to live on that small disability pension which is not enough for any human being to live on. So where am I and people like me supposed to go from here? Christine (person who is living with a disability)
LESSON LEARNED I wish to apologize to the driver that almost ran over me. It was my fault for not pressing the button for the traffic light. I looked before starting to cross in my cart and the traffic was far enough away for me to cross. What I didn't see was your truck coming like a bat out of Halifax. If not for your quick reflexes I would have been part of your grill. I hope we both learned from this experience. One, you do not speed, and, two, I make sure to press the buttons and then wait til there is no traffic, anywhere. I don't think my heart or yours could stand that again. Lillian Olsen

Golf event remembers Botkin ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Emergency services personnel will be trading hoses and ladders for golf clubs to remember a fallen comrade. The North Okanagagan Emergency Services Golf Tournament runs Saturday, June 9, at 4 p.m. at the Spallumcheen Golf Club’s executive course. The event will raise money for the Dan Botkin Memorial Scholarship Fund in Enderby. Botkin was a captain with the Enderby Fire Department, killed in the line of duty fighting a fire in December 2011. “We hope to get as many emergency personnel out to that,” said Kevin Dalgarno, fire prevention officer with BX-Swan Lake Fire Rescue. “Our department usually has a golf tournament every year for team building and camaraderie. This year, we thought we’d open it up and try to involve more of the agencies and make it a little more interactive.” The focus initially is on recruiting police, fire, ambulance and search and rescue personnel to take part in the tournament, but Dalgarno expects to open entries to the public as well.
“Those who want to come out and support, have fun and raise funds for the memorial scholarship will be appreciated,” said Dalgarno. The entry fee is $50 which includes the nine holes of golf and a chicken and steak dinner. There will also be a silent auction and other fun activities to help generate funds for the scholarship. The Enderby Fire Department created the scholarship in memory of Botkin after receiving many donations after Botkin’s funeral in January which drew hundreds of emergency services personnel from across Canada. The Enderby department will dole out the scholarship funds at their discretion. Dalgarno is hoping for a minimum field of 64 golfers and a maximum of 99. If you’re involved with emergency services, or you want to take part as a member of the public, call Dalgarno at 250-545-1739 (leave a message and he’ll call right back), or Devin at 250-8338734 for more information. Spallumcheen golf course is contributing $10 per $50 entry fee to the memorial fund, and there will be a number of corporate sponsors backing the tournament.

Auxiliaries bolster program ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
At one table, VernonNorth Okanagan RCMP auxiliary constable Lisa Jameson records fingerprints. At another table, auxiliary constable Cindy Graves records data into a computer. The volunteer pair do this for two hours on a hot Saturday morning in Armstrong at the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club for more than 40 children as part of Operation Child Find, a program developed by the local detachment. “We provide parents and guardians the opportunity to gather critical information such as a photograph, a detailed description, fingerprints and most recently DNA, of their child which is required by the RCMP in the event of a child being reported missing,” said Cpl. Trevor Tribes, who oversees the program which is helped out greatly by auxiliary constables such as Jameson and Graves.

taken on by organizing events such as the one in Armstrong, and another Operation Child Find Saturday in Enderby. “She ensures the kit for the program is in good working order and has done this right from the program’s inception,” said Tribes. “All of the auxiliaries are involved with the program, as are others. They’re all volunteers, they don’t get paid. They’re a pretty dedicated group.” Jameson and Graves will be in Enderby Saturday participating in the city’s youth day. They will be offering the Child Find program outside the Enderby Credit Union from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is the third year of the program, which had its kickoff in Vernon at the annual Downtown Vernon Association’s Sunshine Festival. Tribes said auxiliaries are planning to be involved in this year’s festival, June 16, in downtown Vernon. Parents are encouraged to pick up an Operation Child Find kit at such events, or at the City of Vernon RCMP Community Policing Office (#101-3334-30th Avenue). Organizations such as daycares or youth groups who would like the program to come to them can call the community policing office at 250-550-7840.

The Vernon Re/Max Tigers gonged Plan A and used some new, more efficient tactics in a 14-9 win over the Armstrong Shamrocks Wednesday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Darrell Landels supplied four goals and one helper for the Tigers (2-4), who got 3+2 from Prince George import Mike Quarin in his Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League debut. â€œIt was a hard-working and rewarding win for the team as the boys earned every minute of those two points,â€? said Vernon head coach Myles Bronson. â€œIn our last practice, the coaches decided to put our current system on the back burner and we implemented a new system that we feel is more conducive to our style of play. â€œOverall the boys executed the game-plan and new system very well. We played a disciplined game and received only six minutes in penalties, when you wash out the fight between Theo Wagner and Owen Barker.â€? Ryan Landels added 2+2 for the Tigers, while Ryan Sarazin had 1+2 and singles came from Austin Lewarne, Bayne Bosquet, Nolan Frame and Sean Connors, on a gutsy traffic goal where he â€œate some titanium while rifling a beauty in the third period.â€? Braden Barr and Matt Kolb each produced three assists for Vernon, who scored on 50 per cent of their powerplays and killed off two of three penaltes while scoring a pair of shorties. It was a very uncharacteristic no-show night for the Shamrocks who trailed throughout, and despite a third-period push that brought them to within one goal, they couldnâ€™t match the Catsâ€™ intensity and determination. â€œWe werenâ€™t prepared for the game mentally and that carried forward into our play on the floorâ€? said Shamrock head coach Pat Nelson. â€œWe were dropping passes, lacking hustle for loose balls, standing around watching on offence and missing defensive assignments.â€?

The PGA of B.C. Womenâ€™s tournament has a small field, incuding Tara Roden of Kelowna and Vancouverâ€™s Sheila Cowan-Hood. â– Head pro Mark Anderson of the Mission Golf & Country Club and his clubâ€™s champion, Stu Dunaway, combined to shoot a 7-under par 65 and win the PGA Association of B.C. Tournament Champions Monday at The Harvest in Kelowna. Anderson and Dunaway edged out Royal Colwoodâ€™s (Victoria) team of pro Jason Giesbrecht and amateur Chris Westlake by one stroke. Anderson earned the top pro prize of $1,200, while Dunaway won a set of TaylorMade R11 irons. Finishing two off the lead in third place (67) were Rob Anderson and Jason Monteleone of Kelowna Golf & Country Club, while Canoe Creekâ€™s Jesse Crowe and Cody Bell tied for fourth with Dean Claggett and Curtis Pannell of Two Eagles at 68. Crowe and Bell collected $650 and split a $200 skin earned by Crowe. Crowe and Bell also hit the jackpot in the Spalding Cup last weekend in Salmon Arm, finishing second in the championship flight, at 137, one stroke back of Salmon Armâ€™s Jeremy Osborne and Chris Harrington. â– Youthful Ethan Danish of Two Eagles in West Kelowna two-putted for par on the first playoff hole to win the $1,700 pro purse in the Royal York Charty Pro-Am last Friday. Keith Vandenbrink of Hillview three-putted the playoff hole for a bogey. He pocketed $1,200. Myles Johnson of Spallumcheen tied for third with Peter Hopley of Gallagherâ€™s Canyon, earning $900 for shooting 73. Crowe finished in a three-way tie for fifth at 74, good for $375. The team of Rick McLaughlin, Gary Champagne, Fred Delure and Dan Lee topped the amateur field, taking home Callaway irons.

ship, but the injuries kept him from showcasing his potential. However, he is thrilled to be joining the Gaels, whose blueline features former Viper Steve Tresierra. The Gaels went 13-132 for eighth place last year. “I’ve been talking to a few schools for a while now and came to the decision that that would be the best fit both academically and hockey-wise,” said McGillis. “NCAA would have been nice, but I’m still going to be playing CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport), the top level in Canada and getting probably one of the best educations you can get out of a Canadian university.” Despite reverting to rookie status, McGillis, who will visit the Kingston campus in a few weeks, hopes to earn top-six or top-nine minutes at Queen’s. “They don’t have a lot of new recruits coming in; only about five or six guys,” he said. “Every year will be a learning experience over there.” Meanwhile, McGillis will spend the summer working at Predator Ridge, while implementing his new workout program (courtesy of the Gaels’ training staff) at Fitness West. “The next few months is going to be a lot of hard training,” he said. “It’s a little more offseason specific training. This is a lot more strength training and explosion stuff.”
Morning Star Staff
Patrick McGillis has never visited Queen’s University, but he already has the inside scoop on his future hockey home in Kingston, Ont. “I have a ton of alumni in my family that graduated from Queen’s, which influenced my decision,” said the former Vernon Viper captain, who committed to play with the Golden Patrick McGillis Gaels for the coming season. “(I have) a lot of relatives living in the Toronto and Ottawa area. It’ll be nice to have a lot of family that’ll come and watch the games.” McGillis endured a second straight injury-plagued B.C. Hockey League season as a 20-year-old in Vernon. After missing time with a shoulder injury in 2010-11, a high ankle sprain limited him to just 31 games this season. When healthy, the Calgary native was a reliable two-way winger, using a deceptively quick release to rack up 11 goals (five on the powerplay) and 14 assists. In 115 career games, he recorded 31-40-71. McGillis originally hoped to land an NCAA Division 1 hockey scholar-

Defenders Stuart Whitling (left) and his son Nathan (right) of the Camels try to get the ball from Brendan Love of Turn-Key Controls in North Okanagan Soccer League play Wednesday night at Marshall Field.
Camels stop streak Morning Star Staff
The Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels FC snapped a three-game losing streak despite a depleted bench, edging Turn-Key Controls 1-0 Wednesday night at Marshall Field #2. The Humpbacks (3-3-1) battled Turn-Key (4-3) hard to try and establish a physical presence in the fast-paced, back-and-forth North Okanagan Soccer League match. Albert Goldnik replaced an injured Ryan Campbell in net for the Camels and turned in an outstanding performance to maintain a clean sheet, shutting the door on a number of breakaway chances, and most notably, punching out a TurnKey cracker from just inside the penalty area midway through the second half. Goldnik’s ability to send balls deep into the Turn-Key territory sparked the Camels’ offensive push. Hi-Pro scored in the 55th minute on a Nathan Whitling feed to Bryan Schenker at the edge of the penalty area. Schenker cheekily heeled the ball to a streaking Jonathan Pfaffenrot who buried a rocket far side on a laid-out Turn-Key keeper Jeremy Kler. Despite a number of breakaway chances and corner attempts, Turn-Key failed to equalize. “It was another tough loss where we struggled to finish our chances. said Turn-Key player/manager Taylor Horsting. “The Camels goaltender played well, including robbing Preston Tucker of what looked like a sure goal midway through the second half. We will need to work on our corners and finish in the attacking third if we want to get back on track.” In the NOSL showdown match, it was host Courvas of Salmon Arm brushing back North Enderby Timber 3-1. All the goals came in the first half with Jesse Knght scoring for NET off a header delivered to the back post off a corner. Courvas (6-0) used speed for their first and
second goals with both goals coming off right wing through balls and low hard shots to the bottom left corner. The third Courvas tally was off a mistimed header by the NET centre back which resulted in a breakaway. NET (5-2) had a chance to pull within one midway through the second half after a Courvas hand ball inside the 18. Defender Andy Stein sailed the penalty shot over the net. “We had a few more opportunities but couldn’t catch up,” said Stein. “It was another physical game with both teams pushing hard for the win.” Nation of Domination Eagle Homes shaded Monashee Surveying 2-1 at Marshall #3. Alberto Lopez of Monashee made a great run early in the game and the NOD keeper rushed out to get the ball while defender cleaned out a Monashee midfielder, forcing a PK. Devon Marriot stepped up and buried the shot and Monashee (3-2-1) led 1-0 at the break. NOD (4-3) evened the score off a gorgeous free kick from about 30 yards. Shortly after, Eagle Homes scored again off a great ball in from the right, followed by a header on the left post. The game got tough and cards came out with Cam Clary of Monashee picking up a red for violent conduct. Honorable mentions for strong showings went to Monashee’s Ryan Sharp and Tobi Siegmann. The Salmon Arm Outlaws clipped Concept Physio 3-2 at Marshall #5. Shane Whitley beat a defender and put a beautiful shot by the keeper for 0-6-1 Concept’s first goal.

Meausette marvellous for Subway Sharks Steady defender Carlee Meausette of the Subway Sharks moved up to striker and responded with five goals in two games in NOYSA Under 14/15 Girls House League soccer at Marshall Field. On Saturday, a shortstaffed Silver Bullets squad battled hard in the first half, but found themselves down 1-0 when Meausette buried a penalty kick after Sarah Orr was taken down inside the box. The teams agreed to play 10-aside in the second half after the Silver Bullets suffered some injuries, and Meausette responded with two more goals to complete the hat trick, while Ashley Eso rang a shot off the crossbar late in the game for the Sharks. Harjinder Janda had her best game of the season for the Sharks, while Katie MacGillivray and Cherish Ayers again shared the shutout in the 3-0 victory. On Sunday, the Green Hornets outplayed the Sharks and were up 1-0 at the half after a nice finish by Mariah Schwark on a breakaway. The Sharks came out hard in the second half, and were rewarded when Rajvir Randhawa lobbed a shot over the keeper. Randhawa then set up Meausette for the go-ahead goal off a corner, before adding her second off the game with a tough angle shot. Meausette finished off the 4-1 win with a late goal for the Sharks, who got steady defence all weekend from Kayli Breitkreutz, Nicole Skidmore, Sarah Wiebe and Nikala DeBalinhard.

Cash combats weeds Morning Star Staff
Non-native weeds are under attack.

This funding will help them continue their work,” said George Abbott, Shuswap MLA.

one day Stepping up to challenge Morning Star Staff
The Step Into Summer 10-week challenge adds warmweather activities to the winter challenge program. Participants can complete and record their activities, which include walking, swimming, hiking, using the fitness circuit at Polson Park, or doing their favourite sport or activity. The benefit is good health, with an added incentive — people who have taken part in the challenge of the week, which is not announced until the end of each week, are entered in a draw for a gift certificate for $200 rec bucks. Louise Burton, a retired physiotherapist, and Rob Kennett, who works at Tolko Industries, were the draw winners of the recent challenge. “It was the first time I had done the challenge and it was good to have the discipline of getting out there and making sure I didn’t slack off over the winter months. I was already doing a lot of the things. The competition was good but it was mostly against myself,” Burton said. She included activities like skating, walking at Wesbild Centre, and gym workouts, which are also part of the challenge. “We like to see people doing a variety of activities and having a well-rounded fitness routine,” said Mike Knights, recreation programer, who designed the challenge. Kennett had taken part in a Tolko Industries corporate fitness challenge before and was active before
he started the Steps Out challenge. “It fit in with what I was already doing which included walking the dog for up to an hour and a half every day. The challenge got me into more of a routine and I lost 15 pounds although that wasn’t the goal. The draw prize was an incentive to keep with the program,” he said. “I found that keeping track on the website was good because I could see my steps build up. You can build up a lot of steps in your normal daily activities and sometimes when I was on holidays, I did as may as 30,000 steps a day. But the main thing is the health benefits.” He is going to use his gift certificate for pool passes for his family and maybe to take circuit training. Burton is going to use her prize to renew her membership in the program and to try some new fitness activities, possibly weight training. The gift certificate also entitles people to $5 off registration for other Recreation Services programs. “People like the
variety of activities in the challenge and the competition makes it more fun,” said Knights. “People who don’t like to walk can take part by doing other things they do like, including golf and hiking. It’s great if I’m helping people do something they might not have considered before.” The Step Into Summer Program runs June 4 to Aug. 12. It is recommended that people try for 10,000 steps a day through various activities but personal goals should be set to take into account individual health and abilities. Membership is $25 for new members (includes pedometer) and $15 yearly renewal. Membership gives participants a $5 discount on other Recreation Services programs. The Cross Canada Challenge to walk (or do activities equivalent to the distance) across Canada at your own pace is still on. For more information and registration for the program, contact Knights at 250-5503669 or see www.vernonstepsout.ca.

Spallumcheen farmer Bev Torrens (left) accepts a cheque from Vernon artist Jerry Markham for $1,000, 50 per cent of the profit from a Markham painting about chickens. Torrens has started a petition campaign to change poultry regulations to help small farmers.
Poultry art aids petition ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A Spallumcheen farmer’s goal of making changes to poultry regulations received a financial boost from a Vernon artist. Bev Torrens has started a petition campaign in the township where area farmers are calling for a change in regulations, and a mobile processing unit to allow their poultry to be processed locally and fairly, providing consumers with the freedom of food choice and access to local products at a reasonable cost. Artist Jerry Markham joined the cause by donating 50 per cent of the proceeds from the sale of his paintings of chickens. “One painting sold for $2,000, so Jerry donated $1,000,” said Torrens, who added that the petition campaign is picking up steam. “The petition is going very well. We’ve had about 80-to-100 signatures so far.” The petition is addressed to Spallumcheen council, which has thrown its support behind the farmers, as has the township’s agricultural advisory commitee. Torrens’ goal is to have council take the petition to the Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) convention in the fall, and hope a resolution will be made, asking the province to make changes to the poultry regulations that will help the small farmers. Torrens currently has to take his chickens to Kelowna to be slaughtered and processed. Torrens’ petition and a Markham painting are available at Rogers Foods, and there are petitions that can be signed at Valley Auction and Hornby Equipment. More details about Markham’s paintings, purchasing info, and the cause can be found at www. JerryMarkham.com.

Buoys, weeds cause issues Morning Star Staff
Parks and the environment are generating considerable debate among Oyama residents. Owen Dickie, a Lake Country councillor, says he was provided with a lot of feedback during a recent front porch meeting with residents, including boat moorage buoys along the north end of Wood Lake. “They are beginning to spread like a plague and boats moored in the lake severely restricting access for swimmers and boat users alike,” he said. Concerns were also raised about increased weed growth Owen Dickie in Wood Lake. “The question was raised if the milfoil is being removed from the lake after it is cut?” said Dickie. Questions were also raised as to why Kaloya Park is closed during the winter. “While this may be a regional district issue, it is one which is not going away any time soon,” said Dickie. “Everyone at the meeting agreed that the park must be open in the winter as a matter of safety and convenience for the residents of Lake Country. “ One suggestion was for the municipality to contract maintenance of the park as it has staff that is located much closer to the site than those with the regional district. A final issue that arose was street lighting on hillside lots. “While many street lights have been converted to reduce night sky pollution, they now shine very brightly onto properties further down the hill. I hope to discuss options with engineering,” said Dickie.
This bicycle was found on Lodge Road in Lake Country May 14.
Bike owner sought Morning Star Staff
The Lake Country RCMP would like to return a found bike to its rightful owner. On May 14, a children’s bicycle was dropped off at the detachment. “The bike — an orange Juvy Nakamura mountain bike — had been found on Lodge Road at Woodsdale Road the previous week,” said Cst. Kris Clark. “Police had no records on the bike indicating it had been reported as stolen or lost. A child should not have to go without their wheels for the summer so the Lake Country RCMP would like to return the bike to its owner as soon as possible.” Anyone with information is asked to call the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288.

Student captures hardware for film CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
Emma-Jane Cohen made her first video when she was seven, talking her friends into acting for her, and she hasnâ€™t stopped since. Groovy Juvie, the film she made at the Galiano Island Film and Television School last summer, placed second in the early teen dramatic filmmaking category at the 17th annual Eyelens Film, Video and Animation Festival in Vancouver in April. â€œI always loved watching movies, not just for the story but for the making of it, how it comes together, the special features,â€? said the 13-year-old Grade 8 Seaton Secondary student. With her parentsâ€™ encouragement and support, she attended GIFTS film camp last summer to learn more about filmmaking. â€œI didnâ€™t know anybody there but we worked well together and learned all the different aspects of making a film,â€? said Cohen, who made the film with Jordan Somani and Alexander Christiansen. â€œAt first we couldnâ€™t decide on an idea,
then we came up with the idea of two kids stuck in juvie for pulling a copâ€™s pants down. One kid comes up with crazy ideas to escape but they can never co-operate on anything.â€? According to Cohen, she has always made films of different subjects. â€œSometimes my sister, Mary-Rose, says something that inspires me or I get an idea from something around me. I like painting and the ideas from painting can become a film. My favourite director is Tim Burton because heâ€™s like the Lady Gaga of directing â€” different and creative,â€? she said. Cohenâ€™s talents lead to a summer job at Sookinchoot Native Youth Centre making films. She was the youngest employee at the centre and has been offered the job again this year. She hopes to attend GIFTS again and go on to work in some aspect of filming. â€œIt just kind of comes to me,â€? she said. â€œWhen Iâ€™m editing, I will try things and PHOTO SUBMITTED get something new. I enjoy it as a way to show Emma-Jane Cohenâ€™s film, Groovy Juvie, won second prize in the early teen dramatic filmmaking my creativity. Sometimes I look at a video category at the 17th annual Eyelens Film, Video and Animation Festival in Vancouver in April. and canâ€™t even believe I made it.â€?

is getting some muchneeded support. There will be a Bright Lights Big City fundraiser at Durali Villa Tuesday, with funds going towards library program resources such as board games, computers and author visits. “We’re really excited about the evening and thrilled to be able to contribute to a facility all of Vernon can enjoy,”

Tenacious D: Rize of the Fenix
Their bloated arrangements, machoman vocals and self-satisfied blues-rock riffs complete the grand illusion. Song titles give hints of the musical treasures within (Low Hangin Fruit, Senorita, Throw Down) and it’s probable that Black and Gass spent some time listening to Uriah Heep and Survivor (of Eye of the Tiger fame) while sitting around. While the lyrics that Black belts out are unabashedly lurid, they’re also irresistibly funny and insightful. The D are unsurpassed in the lost art of story songs. Roadie is hilariously nasty but truthful; a song that any roadie would find respectable – it gets their back! The Ballad
of Hollywood Jack and the Rage Kage chronicles the weird career of Black and Gass up to this point. It’s clear that satire and excess abide in the souls of Tenacious D. The band has serious skills in arrangement and Black’s pseudo-operatic bluster is ear-friendly and compelling. When the clown-like duo is aided by Dave Grohl on drums and John Konesky on electric guitar, the mock rockers are exploded. It’s almost as if the jesters become the wankers. But the D are lucky. They immerse themselves in and wallow in the muck of rock and roll fantasy while exposing its idiocy. Being a moron never sounded so good.
Documentaries take to big screen Morning Star Staff
Here’s your chance to see behind the scenes in Vernon. Jim Elderton, a local documentary filmmaker, shows three of his films Monday at the Vernon Towne Cinema. At 5:15 p.m. is Caroline’s Rock, which looks at the challenges Caroline Ramersdorfer faced over funding and the installation of a sculpture outside of
the Performing Arts Centre. “Even after a donation ensured the completion, it was uncertain whether the resulting plinth could dry quickly enough for the added 15 tons of marble,” said Elderton. Next on the screen will be Curtain Call, which follows Olympian Camille Martens’ Cirque Theatre and its production of Charlie and the

Susan Ghattas (left) and Marilyn Erdmann show a carving of a Bethlehem nativity scene with a removable division wall, signifiying the desire of Christian Palestinians to remove the barrier that separates one from another in Israel/Palestine and is a memento of the women’s recent pilgrimage to The Holy Land. They will share their stories at All Saints Church on Saturday, along with activists, writers and those who have experienced life in Palestine first hand.
Locals share Holy Land experiences CHRISTINE PILGRIM Special to The Morning Star
Last month, Vernonites Susan Ghattas and Marilyn Erdmann joined a group of Canadians, from Ontario to Vancouver Island, on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Their journey, sponsored by the World Council of Churches at the invitation of Palestinian Christians, who number some 37,000 in the West Bank, took them from Nazareth to Hebron, via Galilee, Bethlehem, Occupied East Jerusalem, Jericho and the Dead Sea. Ghattas joined the pilgrimage to honour her late mother-in-law who was forced from Jerusalem in 1948, moving five times with eight children in tow, before she immigrated to Canada. She was never allowed to return to her homeland but Ghattas recalls her toast before every family meal, “Next year in Jerusalem!” Erdmann was grateful to have the opportunity to visit Israel/Palestine under
the banner of Justice-Tourism. “We have eco-tourism, edu-tourism and agri-tourism,” she said. “Justicetourism offers Westerners the chance to visit places like Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Galilee to observe what’s going on there. “We encountered two peaceful demonstrations in support of the 2,000 Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike but no violence, and everyone was friendly and extremely hospitable. In fact, the only time I felt nervous was when we were leaving and our taxi was scanned for explosives and drugs by the IDF (Israeli Defence Force).” The two women will share their experiences and impressions at a KAIROS hosted event at All Saints Anglican Church, entitled It’s Time for Palestine: It’s Time for Peace, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., moderated by the Rev. Canon Chris Harwood-Jones. Joining them will be the president of
the Canada Palestine Association and host of the radio program The Voice of Palestine, Hanna Kawas, along with activist/writer Karen deVito who was jailed for her participation on the Canadian boat to Gaza. Several local residents who have experienced life in Israel/Palestine first hand will also lead discussions and workshops. An introduction and film With God on Our Side will take place at The People Place tonight. The film explores the theology of Christian Zionism and asks if there is a Biblical alternative to current government policies that have led to the suffering of Muslim and Christian Palestinians, as well as many Jewish Israelis. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. for the screening at 7 p.m. Both events are free, but an optional donation will be collected at the door for speaker costs only. For further details, please call 250-5585830.

Davison hosts a day at the farm for cancer Morning Star Staff
by Bob Bissillion, is a well-known community supporter, having raised and donated more than $75,000 to local charities. Of these various causes, Bissillion holds cancer care near and dear. “Bob, in conjunction with the BC Cancer Foundation, established the Daryl Cochran Legacy Fund in memory of his best friend losing his struggle with cancer,” said Magas. Year in and year out, the fund continues to provide continuous donations that help aid cancer care locally. “It’s about supporting a worthwhile cause right here in the heart of the Okanagan,” said Bissillion when asked about his continued involvement in supporting cancer care and research in the Southern Interior. A Day Late and a Dollar Short will donate a portion of the proceeds from their CD sales during A Day at the Farm for Cancer event. Tamra Davison has put together a gift basket full of gourmet foods and treats to raffle off with all proceeds from the basket going to the foundation. Raffle tickets are $3 each or two for $5. Along with the donation of the gift basket, the Davison family will donate $2 from every pie sold on Saturday and the entire proceeds from the popular Johnny Popper Train Tours. Tours will run on Saturday from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. Davison Orchards is located at 3111 Davison Rd., off Bella Vista Road in Vernon. For more information call 250-549-3266 or e-mail info@ davisonorchards.ca
Spring is here … %
It is estimated that one in three British Columbians will get cancer in their lifetime. Cancer can be a nightmare for not only those afflicted, but for their family as well. On Saturday, Davison Orchards’ A Day at the Farm for Cancer event aims to provide a comfortable, fun, family atmosphere centered around raising awareness and donations for cancer care and research. The event will feature a variety of family-oriented activities at the farm as well as a musical performance by A Day Late and A Dollar Short, with the proceeds benefitting the BC Cancer Foundation. The foundation works closely with leading provincial organizations in helping to develop, support and sustain cancer care and research right here in the Southern Interior of British Columbia. “The focus for us was to give support to a cause that can positively benefit families,” said Tyler Magas, an employee at Davison Orchards. “By choosing to donate our proceeds from the event to the foundation, we can support local families, and that is what we are all about.” Last year alone, the foundation provided support to more than 23,000 individuals currently facing cancer treatments, surgeries and rehabilitation. A Day Late and A Dollar Short, local and award winning recording artists, will be performing their signature toe-tapping foot-stomping bluegrass music from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the open air of the farm’s Country Village.

Bring your loonie for a bargain CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
The Loonie Bin provides a much-needed additional thrift store outlet for the Upper Room Mission and a place for the Fresh Start program which offers work skills training. â€œWe call this the Upper Room Missionâ€™s newest miracle on 34th Street,â€? said Bobbe MacKenzie, Upper Room Mission board member and coordinator for the project. The Upper Room Missionâ€™s meals and community services centre and boutique thrift store are all located on 34th Street. The Loonie Bin will have clothes for men, women and children, books and housewares, all priced at a loonie or less after the grand opening. There will be more specials and prize draws in the weeks to come. â€œThe good thing is that there is no tax because we are a 100 per cent non-profit organization. When you give to the Upper Room Mission, you know that it all goes back to the community in services,â€? said MacKenzie. The idea for a second thrift store came up about a year ago as a way to make sure that all donations of clothing and other items would be used. The Fresh Start program will give participants who are looking for work a chance to learn or re-learn retail and customer service skills and get references. â€œWe appreciate all the support we have

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Several people with whom you’ll be involved will sense that you can be trusted with certain secrets that they’re bursting to tell somebody. More than one person is likely to confide in you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Small talk might be more pleasing to your ears than weighty subjects. If you’re looking to spend time with friends, find those who don’t take themselves or life too seriously. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Choose your words carefully so that what you say cannot be distorted or taken out of context and then reflect poorly on you when repeated. Some people are just looking to make trouble. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you plan ahead carefully, you should be able to make your present efforts fit comfortably into your future plans and objectives. Looking to the future has its merits. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your abilities to research, probe and detect are very astute at this point in time. Use this day to get in touch with an associate about a matter on which you sense that he or she has been holding back. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If someone offers you some suggestions that are far better than your thoughts about a matter of mutual interest, don’t let your pride get in the way. It behooves you to employ the best plan available. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Strive to be methodical where your work is concerned. If you make a detailed list and
follow it to the letter, you’ll find that it will enhance your productivity and industriousness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Your perceptions regarding involvements that hold elements of chance could be more accurate than usual. Don’t bet your entire wallet, but it’s OK to wager a dollar or two. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) When your family holds a council about a matter that affects everybody, don’t restrain your opinions. You might be the one who has ideas that surpass theirs. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Don’t be surprised if your mental processes are working overtime and your head is flooded with dynamite ideas. Be sure to jot them down many will be better than usual. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’re likely to have a good head for spotting bargains right now. You stand a good chance of finding something you’ve wanted for a long time at the right price. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of the moment.

Premier Christy Clark is pushing ahead with plans for a new Family Day holiday in February, after independent MLAs voted against the move. NDP MLAs supported B.C. Liberal members in the key vote to approve the new statutory holiday Tuesday. The first one will be next Feb. 11, and the second Monday in February each year after that. Independent MLAs criticized the move and forced a standing vote, after listing the costs it would impose on business. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business estimates that Family Day will cost the average small business more than $1,100 in wage costs, either paying employees to stay home or overtime to come to work. Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington reminded the legislature the new holiday is imposed on business after three increases in the minimum wage in the past year, an average $3,000 transition to the harmonized sales tax and soon a similar cost to switch back to the provincial sales tax next year. Clark promised the new holiday during her B.C. Liberal leadership campaign last year. It will join February holidays in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Prince Edward Island. Clark has argued that the new holiday will not only increase family time, it will also boost business for ski hills, hotels restaurants and other tourist businesses during a slow time of year. Independent Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson noted the provincial governmentâ€™s own payroll cost of the new holiday will be $28 million, a sum that could be applied to a range of pressing government problems.

Making dining out just a little bit easier It is now easier than ever to make healthy choices when dining out with the recent launch of the Province of British Columbia’s Informed Dining program. Featuring more than 300 restaurant outlets in British Columbia, the program publishes nutritional information and allows diners to view the information in a format similar to that of a nutritional guide on products at the grocery store. All you have to do is look for the Informed Dining logo at participating restaurants. “British Columbians have made it clear they want information to help them make informed choices about what they and their families are eating,” says B.C. Minister of Health Mike de Jong. “With Informed Dining, we are partnering with B.C. restaurants to help make the healthy choice the easy choice.” Some of the participating restaurants include chains such as The Boathouse, De Dutch, A&W and Little Caesar’s, and stand-alone restaurants such as H.A.V.E. Cafe in Vancouver, Mountain Eagle Books in Smithers and Joseph’s Coffee House in Victoria. With people in British Columbia eating a meal in a restaurant approximately 10 per cent of the time, it’s never been more important to be able to source out healthy options. With the new program, calorie and sodium information is prominently highlighted for all regular menu items, while other nutrients, including carbohydrates and fat, are also noted. The program also gives advice on daily calorie and

Minister of Health Michael de Jong. “With Informed Dining, we are partnering with B.C. restaurants to help make the healthy choice the easy choice.” sodium requirements. Excess weight can increase the risk for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and various cancers, so caloriecounting is an important part of a healthy diet. Eating too much sodium contributes to high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease and kidney disease, making sodium another important piece of the healthy eating puzzle. “Healthy eating is a critical element in living a long and healthy life and avoiding cardiovascular disease,” says Gavin Arthur, vice-president of research and health promotion for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. “The Informed Dining program takes a positive step forward in providing people with information they can use in making informed choices while dining out.” The program is voluntary, but the provincial government is
encouraging every restaurant to join the initiative and make such information available. “We want to be part of the solution in making healthy choices, easy choices in B.C.,” says Vice-President of the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association Mark von Schellwitz. “This program has the potential to help restaurant patrons become more conscious about what they are eating – it also shines a light on those establishments already providing menu nutrition content while encouraging other restaurants to follow suit.” The provincial government has been working on this program since 2010, and has given restaurants several options for disclosing nutrition information, including a menu insert, a poster or a brochure. “I am proud that we have about 300 outlets across the province signed up to participate in this important program,” says Ian Tostenson, CEO and president of the B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association. “I know that other business will continue to learn more about Informed Dining and sign up – this information is what our customers have been telling us they want, and it is our responsibility to provide it.” The initiative is part of the Healthy Families BC campaign, created by the Province to promote healthy lifestyles and prevent chronic disease. For more information, visit www. healthyfamiliesbc.ca/home/informed-dining. The website also features a contest with weekly draws and a grand prize to cook like a chef and learn from a dietitian.
START ASKING GE T THE FAC TS Making informed menu choices can be challenging. But with the new Informed Dining program, restaurant-goers can now get the facts when dining out. Just look for the Informed Dining logo at participating restaurants and ask your server for nutrition information to help you make healthy choices from the menu. You can now be confident when eating at participating restaurants that you’ll have access to nutrition information before you make your menu choice. Stop guessing...and start asking!
WIN BIG! Enter now for a chance to win great prizes, including a Grand Prize worth $2,500! Other prizes include $150 prize packs to featured Informed Dining restaurants across B.C. Enter weekly for more chances to win! Learn more and enter today at healthyfamiliesbc.ca

On defense, if you can, help partner; if you cannot do that, follow suit and signal accurately so that at least you do not mislead him. In this example, how should East and West play to defeat three no-trump after West has led his fourth-highest heart? In the modern game, Southâ€™s response of three no-trump shows a balanced 13 to 15 points without a four-card major. A response of two no-trump is gameinvitational, promising a good 10 to 12 points. (If
you use inverted minor-suit raises, the auction could go one diamond - two diamonds - two spades three no-trump - pass.) The ďŹ rst trick goes heart three, ďŹ ve, jack, king (or ace). West should now know that South also has the heart ace (or king) because East would have played that card (third hand high) if he had had it. Also, South must have the heart 10 because East would have played it (bottom of equally high cards). Declarer plays a spade to dummyâ€™s queen and calls for a diamond. West wins this trick and should realize that he must ďŹ nd his partner with the club ace. But because West wants East to shift back to
hearts, West must lead the club seven, top of nothing, to deny any interest in that suit. Here, East should win with his ace and return the heart eight, the higher of two remaining cards, to establish Westâ€™s suit. With the diamond ace as an entry, West gets in and runs his hearts for down two.
