Shuswap reels from floods LACHLAN LABERE Black Press

Sicamous residents are being encouraged to conserve water or risk further compromising the municipal water system following extreme flooding that has shaken the houseboat community. Interior Health Medical Health Officer Dr. Trevor Corneil said Monday that while the water is still not safe to drink, the mandatory Do Not Use order was downgraded to a Do Not Consume order, adding that this applies in Sicamous as well as Swansea Point. “The unfortunate matter with the flood water debris is that it landed near the (water) intake for the Sicamous area, and that included both gas and oil, some treated sewage, some raw sewage, as well as chemicals from one of the houseboat operations…,” said Corneil Monday. Corneil said public works has to keep water flow going for emergency support (fire), and to keep they city’s water system from collapsing. The Provincial Emergency Program had a helicopter fly over Sicamous and Hummingbird creeks Monday to assess their current state and if there is an impending danger of another washout. It was unofficially announced that things looked positive, but Sicamous Mayor Darrell Trouton explained Tuesday that while Hummingbird looks good, PEP officials are not convinced that

Sicamous Creek is safe yet. Regarding the 300 to 350 people who are said to have been evacuated, Trouton explains this includes not only residents of 2 Mile, but also Swansea Point and other residents outside of Sicamous, as well as Waterway Houseboat customers who lost their vehicles in the debris flow and haven’t been able to get home. “So what do we do with these people? They went to the evacuation centre because their vehicles were gone. The highways are closed to their homes… so what do we do with them? We have to put them up. They have nothing,” said Trouton. Monday evening, RCMP went around Sicamous Sands putting residents on evacuation alert. The Eagle River was flowing around properties on the far end of Sicamous Sands near the nature park, while the lake was seeping over sandbags in front of properties on the foreshore. Trouton said the district can handle more rain which was in the early-week forecast. “Lives are safe, people are safe, we’ve had a day here to start to work on plans for infrastructure, temporary, when the evacuation order gets lifted… and that’s what we’re working on right now,” said Trouton. “We’ll be back in there and have the people in place to assess all the damages and get the residents back in there as soon as possible.”

A volunteer surveys the devastation and rushing water of Sicamous Creek in the 2 Mile district of Sicamous after extreme flooding wreaked havoc on the Shuswap community.

While the North Okanagan is doing relatively well compared to the devastation in the Shuswap, flood concerns are still far from being eased. There are flood warnings still in effect for Shuswap Lake and Shuswap River upstream and downstream of Mabel Lake (including around Enderby and Lumby). A flood warning means that river levels have exceeded bankfull or will exceed bankfull imminently, and that flooding of areas adjacent to the rivers affected will result. “As of (Tuesday) morning, the river in Enderby was still slightly on the increase (after rising nine centimetres on the weekend),” said Gord Molendyk, information officer for the North Okanagan Emergency Operations Centre. “There were reports of the river breaching in the Enderby-Grindrod area. “It’s right from Sugar Lake right through, the whole works is up.” Flooding has closed Highway 97A eight kilometres south of Sicamous, with singlelane traffic for emergency vehicles only. Three kilometres south of Sicamous at the 2 Mile bridge it is also closed because of damage flooding caused to the road Saturday. Flooding/water damage to a few homes in the Kingfisher area resulted over the weekend after trees came down and diverted water. The forest service road on the back side of Mabel Lake was also compromised, with one or two homes being cut off. “But nothing, nothing compared to what is happening in the Shuswap area, which is just on the outside of our regional district,” said Molendyk, adding we are very fortunate that no lives have been lost. “We have been fortunate in this region.” Some boaters are also putting a damper on homeowner’s efforts to protect their properties. Therefore conservation and police officers will be out on the water on the weekend ensuring boaters keep their wake down. “We want boat owners and operators to have some consideration,” said Molendyk, adding it is an offence to create a wake that could damage property. “It’s highly critical now.” Crews are continuing to monitor the water levels in the area and will advise if there are any changes in conditions that will affect homes and properties.

Timely hole-in-one puts golfer in driver’s seat ROGER KNOX

“The last four holes were just a blur, I don’t even remember hitting the balls,” laughed Luscombe, who shared the news with his disbelieving bride, Dawn, when he got home. “I can’t tell you what I said when he told me, but I’m never going to complain about him golfing again,” said Dawn. The new Jeep will replace an old, but reliable, 1995 blue Dodge Dakota pick-up, which has more than 427,000 kilometres on it, and carries the Luscombe aluminum fishing boat. The ace was the perfect way to wrap up Kal Rotary’s threeyear commitment to the event, which helped raise funds for the North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap United Way. “It’s a great way to finish,” said Rotarian Darryl O’Brian who, along with fellow Rotarian and coevent organizer Bruce Shepherd, missed Luscombe’s magical shot. “We had just left the course and were on our way home,” said O’Brian. “We found out when we got home.” Vernon Dodge Jeep general manager Dan Loewen didn’t find out until Monday morning. “I was blown away,” said Loewen. “Since I joined Jeep in 1998, I think we do two or three of these things a year, and this is the first time somebody has won a vehicle. It’s just great, a win-win for everyone.”

Winning just a sleeve of golf balls in the putting contest before his round convinced Pat Luscombe it was going to be a good day. And looking at the 2012 Jeep Unlimited Wrangler, one of the hole-in-one-prizes at the Kalamalka Rotary Community Golf Day Sunday at the Vernon Golf and Country Club, as he went to the first tee, Luscombe jokingly wondered if organizers would let him borrow the jeep to go to Revelstoke for a golf outing with a friend. A few hours later, Luscombe had his new ride. The chief building inspector and bylaw enforcement manager for the Regional District of North Okanagan aced the par-3, 153-yard 14th hole to win the hole’s special hole-inone prize, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited,

He took out his Power Bilt 8-iron, placed his Nike ball on the tee, and took a swing towards a milestone. It was Luscombe’s first-ever hole-in-one – he did see Dallyn drain an ace playing in a group behind at the Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club’s executive course – and the first ace of the threeyear golf event. Luscombe finished the final four holes with 5-5-3-7 to end up 2-under on the par 3s, and with an overall score of 88.

Some of the school’s oldest graduates also attended the event and recalled a different time but the same family character of the school. “There weren’t a lot of people. I think the most was 26 students,â€? noted Len Bawtree, who attended in 1930 when the school was located in the building that now serves as Lorenzo’s CafĂŠ and included grades 1 to 8. In fact, Bawtree rarely had more than two classmates in his grade. “I didn’t have too much trouble keeping at the top of my class,â€? he said with a chuckle. Everyone knew each other, there was no stress or bullying and friendships often lasted a lifetime. But it was also a time when field trips were unheard of and students had chores. “It was my job for probably two years to light the fire in the morning,â€? Bawtree said. The job meant being at school early, by 7 a.m. “But most of the time I don’t think I was.â€? Water also had to be hauled from a spring and blackboards needed to be cleaned every day. Others recalled more recent memories including having to evacuate due to rising creeks, winter sports days, spring flings, playing grounders and constructing the adventure playground in 1985. Today’s students talked about fun days, playing in the bush during recess, hot dog lunches and outside pajama parties. Regardless of what their association to the school, everyone agreed that it will always hold a special place in their hearts.

shton Creek Elementary School hosted a bit of a family reunion Monday. Former students, staff and teachers, local residents, parents and grandparents joined the school’s current students and staff to say goodbye to the little rural school that has served the community for 101 years. There was food, entertainment, lots of laughter and even a few tears as people came together to reminisce about shared memories, stories and people associated with the school. Everyone seemed to share a true connection at the event, which did not surprise former teacher Jean Witherly, who enjoyed that quality about ACES during her 27 years at the school. “The family atmosphere between the kids, the staff and the community made it special,� said Witherly. “It just felt like one big family here.� Barry Dearing agreed. “The kids make it special. It’s a real community feel,� said Dearing, who had to step down as the school’s principal due to health issues but returned from Vancouver to attend the event. “When I came back after my illness, I got hugs from kids in kindergarten to Grade 7,� he said, pointing out how rare it can be to get a hug from a kid in Grade 7. “That speaks volumes about the kids and the school.� Principal Rudi Ingenhorst organized the event to commemorate the special role the school has played in the community after the North Okanagan-Shuswap School District decided to close the school this year due to declining enrolment. While there is disappointment with the closure, everyone chose to focus on the positive mark left by the school on its students, staff and community. “They say it takes a community to raise a child; well, this school has raised some fantastic children,� said Tundra Baird, who attended ACES in the 1980s and now serves as a city councillor in Enderby. Baird spoke about the great teachers, fun activities and strong relationships that permeate her memories of the school. “This school and its spirit is huge,� she added.

The

Application spurs development debate RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Accusations of antidevelopment policies are coming from within Vernon city hall. Criticism erupted Monday after city staff recommended denying an application for a 33-lot, low-density subdivision on 14 acres on Eastside Road. Staff believes there is already considerable land inventory approved for such uses in the community. “We are anti-development because we have years of lots and until that’s gone, we’re holding tight,” said Coun. Brian

Quiring. Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe has similar views. “Why are we interfering in the market-driven process?” she said. “I’m worried we’re sending the message that we’re not in favour of development in the nicer parts of town.” A staff report says Vernon has existing approved capacity for 40,600 units to accommodate a population of 89,700 people. Staff also says that existing policies call for new development to be focused in the city centre

and designated neighbourhood centres to better utilize existing infrastructure. O’Keefe didn’t agree with staff’s argument. “Water and sewer are already there and there’s a school in dire need of kids out there,” she said. Coun. Patrick Nicol believes the staff report created artificial boundaries for developers. “We’re going to dictate this instead of market-driven successes?” Staff did find some allies on council, though. “There are lots of properties out there if developers took the effort

Senior suffers injuries Morning Star Staff

An 80-year-old pedestrian ended up in the hospital Saturday after she was hit by a 94-year-old driver. The female pedestrian was crossing the intersection at 34th Street and 30th Avenue when a blue Honda turned left and struck her. She was taken to Vernon Jubilee

Hospital where she underwent surgery for broken ribs and internal injuries. “At this time no charges have been laid against the 94-year-old driver from Vernon,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk, noting that the driver did have a valid licence. “We’re still following up on that and keeping our fingers crossed for the pedestrian.”

“There’s a large pool of similar lots that investors have set out. Those investors made plans within the official community plan,” he said. Ultimately, a majority of council defeated the staff recommendation to deny the change in land

use designation from rural agricultural to residential low density. Any further consideration of the Eastside Road application is on hold until staff provides a detailed report of Vernon’s existing development land inventory.

There was the gold medal performance on her home ice at the B.C. Winter Games in February. Then she followed that up with five gold medals at the Western Canadian speed skating championships in Winnipeg. On Monday, the accolades kept coming for Vernon’s Connie Kapak, as the soon-to-be Grade 7 Harwood Elementary graduate was named Tim Hortons North Okanagan Athlete of the Year. “The gold at the B.C. Games was one of the best moments of my life, and winning five gold medals in Winnipeg came at one of the best competitions I’ve been at,” said Kapak, who will attend Vernon Secondary in the fall. “This award is a really big honour and it’s really appreciated.” Kapak, accompanied at Monday’s ceremony at the Okanagan Landing Tim Hortons by her dad and driver, Pete, and coach Peter Blokker, beat out bas-

His quartet from the Vernon and Kelowna curling clubs, which includes third Kevin Folk, second Ty Griffith, lead Rick Sawatzky and coach Rick Folk, was named North Okanagan Team of the Year. Cotter skipped his team to a second consecutive men’s provincial title and a second straight appearance at the Tim Hortons Brier. His squad is rated 11th in the overall World Curling rankings. “Anytime you get recognized in the community, it’s definitely an honour,” said Cotter, who was the only

member of the squad on hand for the award presentation. “It means a lot to our team and hopefully it shows that hard work pays off.” The Cotter rink beat out the Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastics Club for the award. Mel Briggeman, who serves with Ken Richardson as co-chairs of the award selection committee, was startled to hear his own name called by Richardson, the emcee for Monday’s ceremonies. Briggeman, known for his prowess as an award-winning basketball official, and for his dedication of over 50 years to many sportsrelated organizations in the community, was named the Leadership in Sport winner. “I think for the leadership trophy, they should put all the names in a hat and draw one name out, they can’t go wrong,” said Briggeman, while calling for more nominations for all three awards. “I think that’s what they did this year. It’s an honour. I have enjoyed every minute of my community ser-

vice.” Briggeman is a former member of Funtastic, helped build six tennis courts at W.L. Seaton Secondary, volunteered with the B.C. Winter and Summer Games in Vernon, and still helps with wheelchair sports and Special Olympics. He has won four previous community service honours. Dan Currie, owner of the Tim Hortons franchises in Vernon, is happy to sponsor the awards. “It recognizes a lot of the young athletes in our community who might not get recognized outside of our area,” said Currie, who also sits on the selection committee. “It’s always nice to see our local athletes have success wherever they go, because they help put Vernon on the map.” Award selection committee members also include Funtastic cofounder John Topping and media members Kevin Mitchell (Morning Star), Pete McIntyre (Kiss-FM) and Betty Selin (SunFM).

Options on tap for call of Mother Nature RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The public’s business continues to dominate discussions at Vernon city hall. For the third meeting in a row Monday, council members debated whether there is a need for public washrooms for special gatherings in Spirit Square. “It will be an issue we have with every event for Spirit Square,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe of the lack of facilities. Council instructed staff to detail options

for washrooms that are accessible to the public and possibly permanent. The possible options include a new standalone building, a portable structure or using the existing washrooms in the old library, which are being converted into city staff offices. The matter first arose weeks ago because the washrooms in the old library weren’t going to be available during the Civic Sounds summer concerts. The Downtown

Vernon Association will have to pay for a staff person to make city hall washrooms accessible during the concerts. It could cost $50,000 to construct a basic, standalone washroom facility while a mobile structure could be leased for $2,400 a month or purchased for $45,000. “During the winter, there were two or three big events that needed washrooms,” said O’Keefe. “It’s poor planning in Spirit Square not to

Opposition surfaced as a majority of city council agreed Monday to spend $100,000 on a revitalization design for 30th Avenue between 33rd and 35th streets. “This is nothing but a cosmetic project,” said Coun. Bob Spiers, who is concerned the city is paying for trees and other items merchants

in other blocks of 30th Avenue were forced to cover years ago. That’s also a concern for Coun. Juliette Cunningham, who has a business on another section of 30th Avenue. “We paid for the whole shot and we’re still paying for it,” she said, adding the burden for this new project is being forced on to all taxpayers. “It’s difficult for other businesses in town that are hurting.” However, support

came from the rest of council for the revitalization project, which will cost about $2 million. “I view this overall for the health of the city,” said Coun. Patrick Nicol. Previous revitalization attempts had been shot down by property owners in the two blocks, but they recently asked the city to move ahead with the work. Mayor Rob Sawatzky believes there is no choice but to proceed

Lumby B&E suspect nabbed JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

A party led RCMP to a 16-yearold suspected behind a recent rash of break and enters in Lumby. Police were called out to Eastwood Road in Lumby Sunday evening for report of party and youths drinking. “The investigation led the arrest of a 16-year-old suspect in the recent break and enters to seven businesses in the Lumby area over the last 11 days,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. “The damage and the items stolen

have cost local businesses thousands, not only in the damages and theft but lost revenue as several had to keep their businesses closed for a time.” The victim businesses are: Sister’s Restaurant, the Dark Rooster Coffee House, Café Mazzega, Two incidents at the Edible Canvas, Lumby Bottle Depot (an attempt only) and the Lumby Pool office. The thieves stole liquor, cash, a Canon camera and computer equipment and damaged the businesses. The youth suspect is expected to appear in court in August.

with the project. “When we agreed to go down this path after a request from the businesses, we made a commitment to them,” he said. Besides decorative lighting, sidewalks and landscaping, sanitary and storm sewer utilities will be replaced. “There are areas of pipes missing and the structural integrity is poor,” said Mark Dowhaniuk, infrastructure engineer. It’s expected project

History repeats itself

W

hat is old is new again in British Columbia politics. The B.C. Conservatives didn’t waste any time Tuesday firing off a news release about apparent fifth quarter results showing people are abandoning the province. “High taxes and high unemployment are driving people to other provinces,” said John Cummins, Conservative leader. “B.C. families pay the highest taxes west of Quebec, and B.C. was the only province in the west to see its unemployment rise in May. It’s time for the premier to admit her jobs plan has been a failure and to start focusing on real action and not Richard Rolke photo-ops.” All of this rhetoric will sound familiar to anyone who was hanging around B.C. in the 1990s. Back then, though, it was the then-Liberal opposition taking aim at an NDP government. “More people are leaving B.C. than are coming here, and we read about it all the time,” said Sindi Hawkins, the late Kelowna MLA, while speaking in the Legislature July 13, 1998. “In fact, I picked up my copy of the Province on Sunday. What was the headline? “Why More B.C. Families Are Fleeing to Alberta.” The members opposite might want to stick their heads in the sand and say, “No, no, it’s not happening,” but there were interviews in the paper of families and people saying exactly why they were leaving.” In its 2001 election platform, the Liberals claimed they could reverse the trend of people packing their bags for Alberta and other points. “Our plan is aimed at kick-starting the economy in every sector, to create a new era of prosperity in B.C. We want British Columbians

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

to stay at home and to come back to B.C. to build a bright future for themselves, their families and their communities.” Eleven years after coming to power, the Liberals are the ones in the hot seat. “Our province used to be an attractive destination for people looking for well-paying jobs and a better life,” said Cummins in his Conservative release. “But that’s changed under the Clark Liberals. And it’s a major reason why British Columbians want a change in their government.” Statistics may show there is an outward flow of people from B.C. but they don’t specifically indicate the reasons for the shift. Obviously some people have gone looking for work, and we all know people who have done that, particularly to those areas fuelled by the oil and gas sector. But some of those people referenced in the statistics may be moving closer to loved ones or pursuing a fresh start for non-financial reasons. The bottom line, though, is turn about has become fair play. The very same arguments the Liberals tossed at a floundering NDP are now being thrown right back at them as they slide into the basement of public popularity. Christy Clark, who was a harsh NDP critic while in opposition, finds herself in an uncomfortable position. She’s being saddled with the same baggage that helped bring down former NDP premiers Glen Clark and Ujjal Dosanjh. Now the next provincial election isn’t until May 2013 and anything could happen before then. Policy changes and economic recovery could help the Liberals close the gap with Adrian Dix’s NDP. But if history is repeating itself, political rhetoric will continue to escalate and it may become difficult to turn the ship away from the iceberg.

Apples have a long-standing reputation as a healthy food. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, as Benjamin Franklin is said to have put it. But the Frankenstein complex has an equally long, if not longer history. That’s the nickname given to the fear that man’s messing around with the building blocks of life will eventually create something that will destroy humanity. Bring the two together and you’ve got a problem. It’s hard to blame the B.C. Fruit Growers for their concern that the introduction of a genetically modified apple could ruin the reputation of the Okanagan as a source of high quality healthy fruit. And while Neal Carter, whose company has used gene modification to create a non-browning apple, certainly has his eye on the commercial return while extolling the benefits of his Arctic apples, there is one benefit that stands out. And, coincidentally, it’s the same as what made the apple’s reputation. Most people don’t care about a little browning, but it is also indicative of a breakdown of the apple’s nutritional factors. Take away the browning, and the vitamins and anti-oxidants stay. So, on one hand, we have growers wanting to preserve the reputation of their product as a healthy food and on the other we have an apple that retains its nutritional value for longer. Anyone see some common ground here? Caution is a good thing, especially when it comes to monkeying with genes. Extensive testing, too, is a good thing. But allowing caution to grow into an unreasoning fear is never a good thing. If turning off an enzyme can preserve the best aspects of an apple, it shouldn’t be thrown away on account of ancient fear. ---Kelowna Capital News

Anatomy of a bad decision

T

he new B.C. Education Plan announced in 2011 proposes a system that will be more flexible, dynamic and adaptable to better prepare students for real life. It is a forward-thinking plan containing many elements of Sir Ken Robinson’s groundbreaking approach to understanding creativity in education and in business. This evolution in education recognizes that small rural schools such as Ashton Creek Elementary are pivotal to the success of the new learning paradigm. Small schools provide an environment that allows greater flexibility to students and teachers in how, when and where the learning takes place. On April 10, Diane Minaker, Ashton Creek Elementary PAC president, met with Education Minister George Abbott to show him that his new education model is alive and well at Ashton Creek Elementary and has been for some time. Abbott was impressed and very supportive. Later that day, all but one of the North OkanaganShuswap School District trustees voted in favour of closing Ashton Creek Elementary. Why did trustees make such a bad decision? They all received the

same information package that was presented to the Education Minister but Chris Coers was the only trustee that realized the benefits of keeping Ashton Creek Elementary open. The remaining trustees did not comprehend that the values of the educational model at Ashton Creek are supportable and sustainable The school district had already decided to close Ashton Creek as a knee-jerk reaction to declining enrolment in September 2011. The trustees merely facilitated the final step in School Closure Bylaw 1-2012. When the board met in January, the trustees received a report prepared by secretary-treasurer Sterling Olson that showed the school board could realize a net saving of

EI AND OMNIBUS Colin Mayes, I just read your piece in The Morning Star regarding ei. Some of the changes I actually agree with and fully support. However, I completely disagree with the omnibus aspect of this bill. It's a flagrant abuse of power to package all the unrelated changes you want to make into one bill and then ram it through parliament. If you were in opposition and the party in power tried this I know you would oppose it. Stephen Harper in the past, in opposition, spoke against omnibus legislation. It appears his behaviour is hypocritical. I have a question about ei. Since it is funded 100 per cent by employees and employers why all the big fuss? Perhaps they should be the ones making the rules. I also completely disagree with the environmental protections that this bill does away with.

$237,099 by closing Ashton Creek. Eventually all them were making the appropriate remarks to the media about multi-grade classroom concerns, low enrolment and necessary cost savings. Once the report was out, it wasn’t difficult to sway public opinion. Was the school district operating at a deficit because of low enrolment at Ashton Creek? No, of course not. Anyone can check out the district financial statements. A net revenue of $2.2 million in 2011 is not even close to being in dire straits. What about the required structural maintenance and repairs required at Ashton Creek? There’s a $1.6 million annual facility grant for that. What about the low enrolment? There’s a grant for that too

How can you justify these changes? Short-term financial gains and increasing corporate profits do not justify potential destruction of the environment and acceleration of climate change. With this omnibus bill you have lost my vote in the next election. But I'll keep writing you letters in the hope that one day you will listen to the large number of your constituents who don't agree with your views. Doug Miller DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION I've been in the beautiful Okanagan for a few years now and love everything it has to offer except for one big thing, bad drivers. It's from the seniors oblivious to other traffic around them, to 'N' drivers who think the roadways are their personal race track, to businesspeople yapping/texting on their cell phones, to the people who pretend not to see you when they pull

350,000 CLIENTS. $80 BILLION IN ASSETS. 1030 ADVISORS.

and it is going to increase – particularly at small, rural schools. As for the actual costs of running the school, these numbers don’t exist. Costs are not recorded or measured by individual schools. They are allocated based on average salaries, average maintenance average expenditures, etc. for all of the schools in the district. The estimated costs and projected cost savings in the January report cannot be verified or validated. One thing is for certain, the “small additional cost of busing” cited in the report will balloon with increasing enrolment as there are many families in the Mabel Lake corridor that will have school-aged children over the next five years. Educational bureaucracy is steeped in the conventional old school philosophy of “linearity, conformity and standardization (Ken Robinson)" and as yet there are few benchmarks to assess the value and benefits of a free-flowing educational plan. So when will the new paradigm in learning interface with old school bureaucracy and who will connect the dots? Where will it happen? Not at Ashton Creek Elementary apparently. Barbara Craven

out on to a busy street from a side street hoping you will slow down and not hit them, to drivers who are in a hurry and tailgate and do illegal lane changes only to get one car length ahead for all their dangerous driving, and to the slow drivers who take up the passing lane doing 50 kilometres an hour on the highway just to peeve off everyone. There are also the drivers who approach the roundabouts and don't stop at all, and the list goes on. I've seen way too many bad accidents and deaths due to these bad drivers and for what? Slow down and be courteous to other drivers and remember when you are behind the wheel/ handle bars ensure you are utilizing it as a mode of transportation and not a vehicular weapon that can change not only your life but others in a fraction of second. Driving is a privilege not a right. Shawn Cardinal

Cheaper than a Porsche has played at public venues such as Lumby Days, Civic Sounds, Divas in Pink, Vernon Winter Carnival,

Suds ‘n’ Cider as well as private events. This is their second appearance at Music in the Park, having played there in 2011. With a high musical skill level — Steve Durant (vocalist, keyboards, trumpet, harmonica), Rick Balardo (lead guitar, vocals), Owen Cook (rhythm guitar, vocals, harmonica, shaker), Rick Doling (bass guitar), Gary Clark (saxophone, percussions) and Terry Johnson (drums, percussions) promise to provide a great night of entertainment —

fun for the whole family. Music in the Park is a free community event — part of the Celebrate! Countdown to Canada Day festivities — and is proudly sponsored by Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce with support of the City of Armstrong, Thompson Okanagan Tourism and local media. The Department of Canadian Heritage has also provided funds for the Celebrate! Countdown to Canada Day portion of Music in the Park.

played thus far. “We played Lorenzo’s last June,” said keyboardist and rapper Rod Campbell. “What an amazing experience. It’s in an incredibly beautiful location, the room sounds amazing, the staff rock, and the people are not afraid to party. Last year it was the final show of our tour, and we’ve set it up that way again this year.” MBM have joined forces with up and coming producer, Sean McLean Carrie, to record their sophomore record, to be released in October. Mindil Beach Markets plays 8 p.m. Saturday at Lorenzo’s Cafe., 901 Mabel Lake Rd., Ashton Creek. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Sabrina Weeks brings the blues Morning Star Staff

It’s going to be a bouncing good time when recent Maple Blues Award recipient’s Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce roll into Oyama’s Gatzke Farm Market on July 8 for an afternoon of bouncing boogie blues and barbecue. The band has been named the best new blues act in Canada after winning the title of best new artist/group at the 2012 Maple Blues Awards. While the front of the farm displays and sells the bounty of the orchard, the area behind the market provides an opportunity for guests to experience live music in the agricultural and natural paradise of Oyama, the “Jewel of the Okanagan.” In 2010, Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce released their debut CD Tales from Lenny’s Diner. The CD debuted at number one in Canada, number 12 globally on the Roots Music Report Blues Music charts, peaking at number six on the global blues charts in March 2011. Further, the CD made the top 100 RMR list for most radio plays globally for 2011. It has been rated in the top 100 new CDs released in 2010/2011 according to the Real Blues Top of the Charts report and voted as the number-one CD released for 2010 by CFBX and

best new artist for 2010 by the Blues Underground. Also, Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce sits at number three on the Sirius XM Picks to Click blues charts with their song Bad Boys being the most played song on B.B. King’s Bluesville for March 2011. Also, Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce have been nominated by BCIMA for the Blues Album of the Year Award in 2011. Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce are an act that needs to be seen. The show is dynamic, and the grooves drive until you’re swinging, bouncing and getting your boogie on. The songs are light-hearted with a twist of naughty, the melodies are infectious, and it is abundantly apparent when watching this group that they truly love what they are doing. Hailing originally from Kamloops, B.C., this group collectively makes up more than 100 years of musical expertise. In addition to Weeks, band members include Mike Hilliard, Ed Hilliard, Bill White and Ken Sell. Sabrina Weeks & Swing Cat Bounce play Gatzke Farm Market July 8 at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10, and this is an all-ages show. The market is located on Highway 97 in Oyama, between Vernon and Kelowna. For more details, call 250-808-3628.

The Corporation of the

City of Vernon Council Procedure Amendments Bylaw #5375 The City of Vernon intends to amend Bylaw #4840, which regulates Council Procedures in the City of Vernon, to address general ‘housekeeping’ amendments, and include two new categories within the Council Agenda structure. Housekeeping Items 1. Addition of Adoption of the Agenda, which is the current practice of Council. 2. Removing receipt of Committee of the Whole Minutes and Public Hearing Record, as the current practice is to receive these together with adoption of the Minutes. 3. Remove the word “Commission” from Greater Vernon Services, as the Bylaw identifying it as a Commission has been repealed, and; 4. Moving the Close of the Meeting after Information Items so these documents are included as part of the Council Minutes. New Categories 1. Council Inquiries (In Camera and Regular) 2. Administration Updates (In Camera and Regular) An opportunity is provided for persons who consider they are affected by the aforementioned proposed amendment bylaw to provide comments to Council. Please contact Patti Bridal, Corporate Officer, at (250) 550-3524 by Friday, July 6, 2012, if you have a submission. A copy of the proposed Bylaw is available at City Hall, Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, and is also available on our website www.vernon.ca forming part of the June 25, 2012 Regular Council Agenda (Page 302). 3400 - 30 Street, Vernon, BC • 250-545-1361 • e-mail: admin@vernon.ca

Twenty-five talented golfers from Special Olympic Locals throughout the province took part in the Regional Qualifier at Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club June 10. Seven teams from far away as the Lower Mainland came to play the Executive 9 Hole Course trying out for the Provincial Championships in 2013. “Five of our local athletes participated with amazing results,” said Tom Truesdale, the Vernon golf coach. “Gerry Pollen came first in his division and Tom Wilde, Justin Sigal, Steven Linemayr and Colby Bell did very well.” Truesdale said the group is still awaiting the end results but is confident that some of their players will qualify for next year’s Provincials. “With the help of Kyle and Kelli from the Spallumcheen Golf Club, the event was very well organized and all participants had the time of their lives,” said Heidi Borgeaud, Vernon Special Olympics program coordinator. Special Olympics BC welcomes people with an intellectual disability from a wide range of ages, backgrounds, interests and levels of abilities. The participation in sports provide them with the opportunity to develop social skills, cultivate friendships, increase their self esteem while they strive to achieve goals with the motto: “Let me win, but if I can not win, let me be brave in the attempt.” “Our Special Olympic Athletes are proud competitors, brave in trying to be the best they can be while spreading their enthusiasm and smiles across to everyone,” said Karen Truesdale, Vernon Local golf head coach. “It is amazing how they get involved and involve everybody around them. “They set the score for all of us very high.” The SO Vernon Local offers 14 sports programs, and participants can join as many sports as they like. For more information on the program, volunteer work or to donate to this charity, please visit www.sobcvernon.ca or call 250-306-8954.

finally put the last of my extra tomato plants in the ground. I transplanted the last of the cucumbers and melons last week between showers and heavy rain at times. My basil was not happy about all the rain and the cool nights so I put the hot caps on them and it helped a lot. I also had to redo some of the pole beans as they rotted in the soil even being pregerminated. The peas, lettuce and broad beans on the other hand are very happy. I was checking Jocelyne Sewell on some plants and noticed that some of the leaves at the bottom were just like lace. I recognized the pattern right away: earwigs. Earwigs are one of the most disliked insects. They enter a house with the help of a host – on humans, clothing, vegetables, newspapers, etc. Earwigs are reddish-brown, approximately 4/5 of an inch (2cm) long with antennae and a noticeable set of pincers which protrude from the abdomen. The female uses her pincers to protect herself and eggs from other insects, but

they cannot harm humans. Earwigs have wings but they are rarely used to fly. Earwigs wait for darkness to begin their search for food and shelter. They enjoy dark, moist areas and feed on decaying plant and animal matter. They also cause slug-like damage to leaves, petals, fruit and vegetables. One way to determine if a slug or earwig is the cause of damage is to look for a slimy substance which slugs leave behind. Earwigs also damage vegetables by entering and enlarging existing holes. Earwigs can be beneficial in the garden as they are predators of some small insect pests such as aphids. The life cycle of the earwig consists of egg, nymph and adult. In early spring, after overwintering in soil, the female earwig lays up to 60 eggs in the top section of soil. In about seven days, the eggs hatch and nymphs emerge. The female tends to the eggs and nymphs for the first two weeks. The nymphs are similar to adults, only smaller. Over a 70 day period, the nymphs pass through four growth stages before becoming an adult. Egg laying can tale place twice per year (spring and summer). Adult earwigs will be most noticeable in July, August and September.

If earwigs are damaging your plants, there are some physical control measures available. Since they are active at night, check your garden with a flashlight to determine if earwigs are present and causing damage. I find the best time is after 11 p.m. I will go with the flashlight in one hand and a little container of water with a few drops of dish soap in it. If you use only plain water, they can climb the side of the container and escape. I use tweezers to catch them and after four to five years of hunting, I can say that I am pretty good at it. They hide often on the underside of the leaves and you have to be careful not to move the leaves too much as they will fall to the ground and they are fast to hide. Hunting on a windy night is a waste of time. Earwig traps are easy to construct and very economical. Take a rolled up newspaper, a piece of corrugated cardboard or a paper towel tube filled with straws and seal it on one end. Place it in an area of the garden where earwigs have been observed. Check it the next morning and shake them in the pail of soapy water. For more information, call 250-5584556.

Tazz hopes to be named top dog

A vacation for your pet while you are away

Morning Star Staff

Everybody loves Tazz. The special needs children his owner, Alma Tees, works with can’t get enough of the friendly, year-anda-half-old beagle. “I take him to the classroom sometimes and the kids can do anything they want with him. He’s so calm. He just sits there and lets them love him. I’m hoping that with the right training he can become an autistic service dog when he is a little older,” she said. Tees wasn’t planning to get a dog but when she went with her daughter to pick up her dog, she fell in love with the other dog there and brought him home. “He’s so sweet and good-natured. We only found out that he was selected, they said there were hundreds of entries. One dog was from Italy. It’s pretty exciting. I’m a big fan of Cesar Millan, and Tazz will be on his website,” said Tees. “I hope people will support this hardworking hometown beagle. “All someone has to do to support Tazz, is follow the link to the page and click Like. A few clicks and seconds of one’s time is enough to support Tazz.” Tazz has been in second place since the finalists were announced and the top contender is a dog from New York. The winner will be announced on Friday.

Spring Strawberry Spinach Salad 1 bunch spinach, rinsed 10 large strawberries, sliced 1/2 cup white sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup white wine vinegar 1 cup vegetable oil 6 large strawberries 1 tablespoon poppy seeds In blender, place sugar, salt, vinegar and oil, and 6 strawberries: blend until smooth.

Building up a high-self-esteem doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t mean your self-confidence is also high in all areas of your life. So what does it take to build up your self-esteem, which in turn builds up your confidence level? This is the kind of questioning, sharing of ideas, and learning about self and others that will be part of a Discovery Workshop (held every second Thursday of the month). Next workshop July 12 from 1 - 3 p.m., Lumby Community Hall, 2250 Shields Ave. No cost. You don’t have to register. Just show up and join the group. For info., call Olena at 250-547-8866. W.L.

Businesses hand council petition ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Firmly entrenched on Okanagan Street for 20 years, Frugal Frocks

owner Susan Gagnon believes in what she calls Armstrong’s “oldtown,” the downtown core.

Gagnon patronizes other old-town businesses. She banks in downtown, goes to the dentist, chiropractor and physiotherapist in downtown. She eats out – a lot, she says – in old-town. Gagnon wants to see people, jobs and businesses encouraged to remain in old-town, and to see growth in old-town. Which is why she is adamantly opposed to a proposed development outside of Armstrong, at Harding Road and Highway 97A, that aims to bring in a commercial entity, possibly a hotel or motel, along with 60-plus housing units. “It’s essential we have outside revenue from visitors to keep us afloat,” said Gagnon, who led a delegation of nearly 30 people at Armstrong council Monday evening, asking council to delay fourth and final reading of the application. “There’s no reason to get off the highway

and visit old-town if there’s not a variety of shopping and services available. Approving strip malls along the highway does not conform to growth in oldtown.” Gagnon presented council with a petition containing more than 400 signature, asking them to delay fourth reading of the zoning amendment bylaws that would approve the proposal. The petition also calls for a further public hearing process to allow submissions from residents regarding the proposal. Gagnon said council proceeded to public hearings on the proposal without proper notice to residents and interested parties, resulting in a lack of public input. Coun. Kelly Rowe questioned Gagnon as to where she came up with information about a strip mall being part of the development. “A strip mall has never been presented

to this council,” said Rowe. But before Gagnon could respond, Mayor Chris Pieper intervened, saying a chronological history of everything that’s happened with the proposal will be sent to Gagnon, and would also be posted this week on the city’s website, www.cityofarmstrong.bc.ca. Pieper disputed the petition’s suggestion that proper notice was not given to residents on the proposal. “All the proper channels were followed,” said Pieper. “We had first and second reading of the bylaws, we advertised in The Morning Star for three consecutive issues and we had a public hearing. “All of the proper provincial rules for advertising a bylaw were followed.” The application has had three readings. A final reading by council would allow the developer to proceed with the application.

As an influx of people flock to the region for Funtastic, the RCMP is swinging out some extra resources, just in case. The music festival and slo-pitch tournament, plus lawn bowling, goes Friday through Monday in Vernon, Enderby and Armstrong. The event draw 300 teams, which amounts to approximately 4,500 ballplayers plus another 600 to 1,000 spouses and children.

Weekend busy for search crews Morning Star Staff

Vernon Search and Rescue crews were called into action after a motor vehicle accident Saturday. At 4:15 p.m., unit members responded to an incident where a vehicle with four occupants went off Bluenose Road, near Lavington. “Three of the occupants were injured, one seriously,” said Leigh Pearson, search manager. “Members responded and brought the injured up to awaiting ambulances. The task was completed by 6:20 p.m.” Also on Saturday, the RCMP received a report of a swimmer in trouble in Okanagan Lake, off of Fintry. The man had gone into the water to rescue his dog. Eight SAR members responded at 10:15 a.m. and were stood down at 10:45 a.m. because the swimmer had been picked up by a person in a kayak and brought to shore. On Sunday, Search and Rescue was called out at 7:20 p.m. because of a boat apparently in trouble on Okanagan Lake, near Parker’s Cove. “The caller stated that the boat seemed to be adrift and that the occupants were sounding their distress airhorn,” said Pearson. “The 15 responding SAR members were stood down at 8:30 p.m. when it was determined that the occupants of the boat managed to get it started and had left the area.”

ing at 10 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings until approximately 2 a.m. Guests will be shuttled by bus to their destination within reason to campgrounds and accommodations throughout the community. The free shuttle is provided by Funtastic and Vernon Home Building Centre in conjunction with the City of Vernon.

Residents urged to be prepared for evacuation Morning Star Staff

Every year in B.C., the risk of wildfires and flooding requires people to be evacuated. The evacuation

process has three key stages and the approach is consistent for all types of emergencies throughout the province.

For all your irrigation needs Save time, water, and energy for a beautiful lawn all season long

“There is never a good time to experience an emergency or be asked to leave your home. Being unprepared only makes things worse,” said Lawrie Skolrood, with the Vernon Fire Department. With an evacuation alert, a warning is issued about an imminent threat to life and property, and people are asked to be ready to leave on short notice. When the population is determined to be at imminent risk, an evacuation order is issued and people must leave the area immediately. Local police or RCMP enforce evacuation orders. An evacuation order or alert is rescinded when it’s safe for residents to return home. “It is important for you and your family to put together grab-andgo kits for your home, office and car,” said Skolrood. “This kit has the very basic supplies you would need in case of an unexpected evacuation. You might be asked to leave the area on short notice and register at a reception centre.” Items may include:

Fire or flooding can force residents to evacuate their homes. Flashlight Battery powered radio First aid kit Multi-purpose tool Cash Identification Prescription medi-

cation and eyeglasses Personal items Basic survival items like water and energy bars Garbage bag or emergency poncho What happens when

disaster strikes and there is no warning? “Emergency services helping the most critical in need, might not be readily available and might take some time to get to you,” said

Skolrood. ‘You and your family could be on your own for an extended period of time. Can you and your family survive for 72 hours?” Basic items you will need to survive for 72 hours: Water - at least two litres of water per person per day (including small bottles that can be carried easily in case of an evacuation order). Food - that won’t spoil, such as canned food, energy bars and dried foods. Manual can opener Flashlight and batteries Candles and matches or lighter. Battery-powered or wind-up radio (and extra batteries) First aid kit Special items such as prescription medications, infant formula and equipment for people with disabilities Extra keys for your car and house Some cash in smaller bills (travellers cheques are also useful) and change for pay phones A copy of your emergency plan including contact information.

Lightning screeches bikers to a halt Morning Star Staff

Early morning it looked like Mother Nature would be kind on the first day of Silver Star’s 2012 bonus weekend. However it didn’t last long. At 10:45 a.m. Saturday, the first lightning crack was spotted and the resort had to clear and shut down the Comet SixPack lift until the storm ended. “Lightning closures are nothing new — Ian Galbraith to the bike park in summer time but for all of the keen mountain bikers chomping at the bit to get out and ride lift access downhill, it was an exercise in patience,” said Ian Galbraith, summer business manager. Most lightning strikes average two to three kilometers long and carry a current of 10,000 amps at 100 million volts. “This explains why the chairlifts were cleared and shut down as quickly as pos-

Guests were transported from the bottom of the lift back to the village via bus,” said Galbraith. Almost all the trails were open for the bonus weekend with a few exceptions where the ground was too soft for biking. Luckily, with the resort closed this week, it gives crews time to get the trails open and ready for full operations open-

Cup Race July 21 and 22 and the Freeride Festival Aug. 25 and 26. As well, Silver Star has started new non-mountain bike activities like Frisbee golf and geocaching.

Shamrocks for Tigers in first round Morning Star Staff

It will be an all-North Okanagan affair when the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League playoffs get underway next Wednesday at Wesbild Centre. The second-place Vernon Re/Max Tigers (8-6-2) will host the third-place Armstrong Shamrocks (6-8-2) in Game 1 of a best-offive semifinal series. The remaining games alternate between Nor-Val Sports Centre and Wesbild (see attached schedule), all with 7:30 p.m. start times. The Tigers dropped their first two games of their regular-season series with Armstrong, but won the last two. “There’s always that rivalry with Armstrong and Vernon with the guys playing together growing up,” said Tigers’ assistant coach Dave McWhirter. “There’s some pride to be swallowed by the loser when you have a rivalry like that. “We didn’t play very well against them the first two games, but played better lacrosse the last two games and we’re looking forward to carrying that over.” The first-place Kamloops Venom (13-11) will battle either the fourth-seeded South Okanagan Flames (4-10-2) or fifth-place Kelowna Raiders (4-10-1), pending the outcome of Thursday’s tilt between Kamloops and Kelowna. If Kelowna wins, they are in; a loss would eliminate them, and a tie would go to a head-to-head tiebreaker. The Cats ended their regular season last weekend, handing the Venom their first loss of the season with a 12-9 decision Saturday at Wesbild. They drew the Flames 13-13 Sunday in Penticton. “It was definitely our best game of the year,” said McWhirter, who praised defenders Matt Kolb, Theo Wagner and Austin Leware for their physical play. “We really punished Kamloops. Jake Soleway must have laid three or four guys out. We’re big, strong guys on the back end and they came ready to play. They (Venom) didn’t want to cut through the middle at the end of the game.”

ANDRE LODDER/MORNING STAR

Mason Limb of the Vernon Re/Max Tigers shields the ball from Zac Bruneau of the Kamloops Venom in Junior B lacrosse action Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. Vernon continued its trend of building solid starts, rushing out to a 5-0 lead on the strength of three shorthanded goals against Kamloops. Nolan Frame and Prince George import Mike Quarin, each with a deuce, and singles by Ryan Landels and Bayne Bosquet accounted for the Cats’ first-period barrage. Jordan Ellis and Braidy Jorgenson handled Kamloops’ offence. The margin remained the same in the second frame as Landels, who added five assists, Ryan Sarazin, Frame and Darryl Landels recorded singles for Vernon, and Brett Defrias (2), Jimmy Latin and Gage Deacon scored for the visitors. Jordan Orr, who supplied three assists, and Sarazin completed Vernon’s scoring in the final frame. Jamie Forster, Quinn Smith and

Blaine Boomer tallied for the Venom. Vernon captain Brett Hanna chipped in two helpers. Kamloops outshot Vernon 57-42, but Tigers’ netminder Joel Fruncillo backstopped his team with a 48-save effort. Unfortunately, Fruncillo will miss the playoffs as he broke his thumb making a save Saturday. It required pins. “That’s gonna hurt,” said McWhirter, of losing their starter. The Tigers are expected to go with a tandem of Midget call-up Tyler Landry and Trail’s Thomas Bella, who started Sunday’s game against South Okanagan. Bella, having never practised with the team, nor having played with the larger nets, was pulled in favour of Landry in the third period.

“Thomas played well, we just didn’t give him the support he needed,” said McWhirter. “We didn’t come to play. We were behind the whole game.” With Vernon trailing 11-8 heading into the third period, Frame scored twice with the goalie pulled for the extra attacker to salvage the tie. “It just shows our guys are able to deal with adversity,” added McWhirter. “You never want to go into the playoffs on a weak game.” Ryan Landels put on a clinic against South Okanagan, registering five goals and eight assists. Frame supplied 6+1, Sarazin had 1+4 and was great on faceoffs and Darryl Landels fired a single. Meanwhile, the Baby Rocks fell 16-6 to the host Venom in their final regular-season fixture Sunday at Memorial Arena. In Senior C lacrosse action, due to a booking error, Thursday’s game between the Shamrocks and Kamloops Rattlers has been moved from Enderby Arena to Nov-Val, with an 8 p.m. start. “It very disappointing to the players as they were all looking forward to playing in Enderby,” said Rocks’ president Jeff Hanley. An Armstrong win would give the Rocks second place overall and home-floor advantage in round one of the Shaw Cup playoffs.

Aces trump U19 playdown Morning Star Staff

The Salmon Arm Aces emerged as the top team from the Under 19 Girls zone fastball playoffs last weekend in Vernon. Playing in soggy conditions, the Aces outlasted three other teams – Summerland Scorch, Kelowna Warriors and Vernon Heat – to advance to U19 provincials, July 6-8, in Sooke. Salmon Arm stopped Summerland 12-3 in the championship game, giving Aces’ coach Bill Coldwell his first trip to provincials in a long and successful coaching career. “They really deserve the chance to be there,” said Jodi Rolke, Vernon minor fastball president. “Bill is an incredible coach and he has waited for this opportunity for many years. They will do awesome and I hope they enjoy the experience.” The sun made an appearance in the first set of games Saturday, with Kelowna

grounding Vernon and Salmon Arm knocking off Summerland. In round two, Summerland brushed back Vernon and Salmon Arm stuffed Kelowna. Round three had to be stopped after three innings due to the torrential downpour that hit Vernon Saturday afternoon. The decision was made to go straight through to the playoff round on Sunday morning, with the Aces taking first in the round-robin, the Warriors second, Scorch third and the Heat fourth. Sunday saw better conditions, with Salmon Arm earning a forfeit win over Vernon, and Summerland defeating Kelowna 12-8. The Vernon minor fastball season wraps up on the July 7-8 weekend with the U12 regional jamboree in Sicamous, with Blair Campbell’s Panthers representing Vernon.

Jackals double up Grizzlies to end ORU season Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Jackals closed out the Okanagan Rugby Union season by gonging the West Kelowna Grizzlies 24-12 Sunday at Grahame Park. Corey Webb supplied a pair of tries, while Dion Kaszas and Devin Hospes each had one try and Rob Miles went 2-for-4 on conversions. Mike Scheller “We played much better than the previous week, and we got some

guys back from injury which helped our club,” said Jackals’ veteran scrum-half Mike Scheller. “It was a game where we held the majority of territory and ball possession. I thought all of our players did a very good job in the rucks and mauls, and we maintained possession of the ball throughout the match. “We tackled much better in defence this week, and it showed in a positive game result. It was a game we deserved to win. West Kelowna has some explosive players and they are always a threat score.” Scheller said (Kiwi) Dan Eyles returned

after a three-game absence and showed why he is the Jackals’ best all-around player. “He was all over the field, and made about four kill-shot tackles. Pearse Wylie made his debut at eighth man, and played very well,” added Scheller. “He gave us lots of good balls off the base of the scrum, and he tackled well. Corey Webb played awesome on the wing for us. He was aggressive on attack, and he definitely has a nose for the try line.” Hospes, lining up at fullback, made a lot of key one-on-one tackles to earn Longhorn Man of the Match in the backs. Lock Eric Grottenrod was tough in the loose play and

turned in his best game of the season. Vernon (3-5) will not play in the ORU final for the first time in the league’s three-year history. The two-time defending champs split with the Kelowna Crows, Merritt Barbarians and West Kelowna, and lost twice to the Penticton Harlequins. The last week of league play is Saturday, July 7, and Vernon has a bye. The ORU final is July 14 between Merritt and Penticton, (host TBA). Vernon’s next action will be July 7 when they are in Prince George to play the Gnats, Terrace and Prince Rupert in a tournament.

Green Giants jolly after claiming Mosquito pennant Morning Star Staff

The Wayside Press Green Giants brushed back the Kal Tire Red Hawks 7-5 in the Mosquito baseball playoff final Thursday night at Lakeview Park. Both teams scored once in the first inning with Ryan Gamage driving in Tyler Sedlacek for the Red Hawks and Caden Colmorgen doubling in Ryan Vandesande for Green Giants. Shaun Huizinga of the Green Giants and Sapien Joe for the Hawks each struck out two batters. In the second inning, the Red Hawks’ Chase Batchelor doubled and then swiped third and home. Eli Nahirny singled in Cayden Coombs, while Tyler Sedlacek knocked in Nahirny and Gamage drove in Jackson Soucy for the maximum four runs. The Green Giants responded with three runs as Carter Morris singled in Matthew Hansen, while Lincoln Connor doubled in Sawyer Bliss and Morris. Third baseman Soucy

made a stellar throw to first baseman Nicholas Walker to get the third out for the Red Hawks. It was a pitcher’s duel in the third with Morris retiring the Red Hawks in order and Chase Batchelor chasing down two hits short of the mound and making the quick toss to Walker at first for outs. Morris was also scorching in the fourth as he fanned three batters after some solid hits by the Red Hawks. Batchelor struck out one batter before Gamage took over for the Red Hawks. Connor stroked a two-run single to bring in Bliss and Morris and put the Green Giants ahead 7-5. Gamage struck out one. Morris mowed down two more in the fifth, while Giants’ catcher Colmorgen threw to Connor at first for the 3rd out. Gamage pitched for the Red Hawks, whose second baseman, Eric Foufoulas, caught an infield pop fly and then gunned a throw to Nicholas Walker at first for the second

out. Joe recorded a nice foul fly ball outside the third base line to end the inning. In the sixth, Gamage singled and then got to third on steals. Morris fanned two batters and Connor recorded the final out on an infield pop fly. In Mosquito Select play, the Vernon Canadians grounded the West Kelowna Canadians 15-9 Saturday. Brayden Beacom, who shared pitching with Koll Cherkowski and Landon Harison, smacked an early two-run triple to score Harison, who had doubled, and Cherkowski. Beacom also scored later after he followed Cherkowski’s double and swiped home. Colmorgen smacked a two-run single in the fourth, bringing home Soucy and Foufoulas, while Gamage walked to score Colmorgen. Chris McIntosh drove in Morris and scored when he swiped home, while Soucy knocked in Beacom. Infielders Batchelor and Foufoulas were standouts defensively.

The ever-improving Ogopogos moved two games over .500 for the first time in years by grounding Pushor Mitchell Advocates of Kelowna 3-1 Monday night at Marshall Field #4.

Wasylyk unselfishly put a cross past Turbitt to a wide open Riedstra at the far post. Late in the match, the Advocates (3-6-1) managed to spoil Yogi Kongsdorf ’s shutout dreams with a hard shot from the top of the 18. Kongsdorf made a nice diving save and the ball slowly rolled out of his finger tips as he laid helplessly on the ground. Bob Dupas rushed in to bury the loose ball.

ATTENTION: GRAD CLASS OF 2012

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Being fair-minded and unbiased is required if you hope to win others over to your point of view. Trying to force the issue would have an opposite effect.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) An objective that is of utmost personal importance might not be so vital for some of the others involved. The only way you’ll get what you want is to break away and work independently.

be tempted to attempt something that didn’t work out too well the last time you tried it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You should know that you would derive the greatest of pleasure from engaging in shared activities. If you decide to play a loner’s role, this will be just another humdrum day. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Because the needs and requirements of those with whom you’re involved are too restrictive, you may start to look for a way out. Try to do so as pleasantly as possible. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Make sure you have the necessary tools, materials and time before tackling a big project. If any one of these things is missing, chances are the job will never be finished. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Activities that include elements of friendly competition will be highly appealing to you, which is all well and good. However, if at all possible, keep wagers out of the picture. THE

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although you may appear to be in your own world, you’ll be hard at work weighing and balancing critical issues that will make or break your plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) This is not a good day to talk shop or to try to promote a special interest when in a social setting. Your friends are far more interested in having fun than listening to your workaday affairs. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Try as you might, it could be difficult for you to escape the scrutiny of others. Whether you like it or not, your public image is being assessed by some rather severe critics. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You should trade on your past experiences instead of totally ignoring them.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder FIRST SPOT CARD TELLS A LENGTH STORY Cleveland Amory, an author and advocate of animal rights who died in 1998, said, “As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows, cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind.” As anyone who has ever been around a bridge table for any length of time should well know, telling partner the length of your holding in his suit may be vital. This week we are looking at playing the right spot cards. In this deal, East opens one heart, South jumps to four spades, and everyone passes. What should West lead? Note South’s four-spade

overcall. He needs so little from partner to make game laydown. (The diamond ace is sufficient.) Also, given East’s opening bid, it is unlikely that his side can make a slam. Four spades is so much more likely to inconvenience the responder than miss a slam. When making the opening lead, the general principle is that a low card from a three-card or longer suit guarantees at least one honor in that suit. However, when leading partner’s unsupported suit, the rules are high from a doubleton; or low from three-plus, even without an honor in the suit. Here, West must lead the heart two. Then, after East wins with his nine and cashes the ace, he will know that South is

out of hearts. East will shift to the diamond two (low guaranteeing an honor in that suit), and the defense will win the first four tricks. If West leads the heart eight, that shows a singleton or a doubleton. East will expect to cash a third heart trick, but South will ruff, draw trumps and run the clubs for an overtrick.

Monte t d Morden It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Monte Morden on Saturday, June 23, 2012 at 78 years of age. He will be deeply missed by his wife Eleanore of 51 years, children: Janice (deceased), Bob (Kim), Jim (Heather) and lovingly remembered by his five grandchildren: Brett, Kelsey, Brianna, Erik and Brendan. Monte was born and raised in Kenora, Ontario. He attended the University of Manitoba and graduated with a BSc. in Pharmacy in 1959. He and Eleanore married in 1961 and moved to New Westminster where he began his career as a pharmacist. In 1962 Monte & Eleanore moved to Vernon where Monte joined Nolan’s Drugs and began a long and rewarding career as a Pharmacist and subsequent partner where he dispensed medicine, advice and good humour for over 25 years! Monte was recognized as the B.C. Pharmacist of the year in 1985. He played an active role in the community and was a long time member of Kinsmen (where he was very involved in the building of Kinsmen House for Venture Training) and Rotary Clubs as well as serving on the boards for Noric House and Vernon Rest Home. Monte and Eleanore enjoyed an early retirement and traveled all over the world. He was a great athlete, an avid hiker and snow skier, pursuing both activities until age 77. Monte was a dedicated hockey father and a strong supporter of Kokanee Swim Club. He was devoted to his family and perhaps his greatest calling was as a Grandfather. Monte created a legacy of love, generosity and laughter for his five grandchildren. Remembering Monte will be easy; missing him will be the hardest part. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the North Okanagan Hospice Society (3506-27 Ave., Vernon, B.C. V1T 1S4). A Memorial Service will be held at the Pleasant Valley Funeral Chapel on Saturday, June 30, at 11:00 a.m., with Father Dale Normandeau officiating.

Barbara Harrigan passed away peacefully on May 19, 2012 with family by her side. Barbara was born on April 12, 1924 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to James and May McDonald; their youngest child and their only daughter. She grew up in Watson, Saskatchewan and graduated as a Registered Nurse from the Winnipeg General Hospital in 1946. Barb excelled in her career in nursing, practicing in Canada and in California until she married Jack Harrigan in 1949. She settled in Trail BC where Barb and Jack raised their large family. Despite a hectic schedule, Barb’s giving nature was exempli¿ed in her volunteer roles at Hospice, CWL and St. Michael’s School. Any further spare time was spent playing tennis, golf, bridge and writing. Barb’s talent in creative writing led to her producing several children’s books and poetry that she shared with her family. Barb moved to Vernon sixteen years ago where she met wonderful new friends. All the while, she continued to keep in touch with her treasured childhood friends, nursing buddies and friends from Trail. Barb’s family was her prime interest and source of joy. Her keen sense of humour (which she needed with seven children) as well as her patience, kindness and spirit of gratitude will continue to inspire all of us. Barb was predeceased by her brothers Don and Jim. She is survived by her seven children Nancy (Pierre), Denis (Josie), Meg (Ron), Art (Kath), David, Brian (Brenda), Richard (Kath). She is also survived by 16 grandchildren: Lisa, Genevieve, Lindy,Trisha, Dan, Nathaniel, Dave, Ted, Pat, Galvin, Jake, Sean, Luke, Connor, Caitlin, Jane and ¿ve great grandchildren: Jaiden, Tristan, Ruby, Esme and newly arrived Jaxen. Barb’s family is extremely grateful to the staff of the Vernon Hospice for the care and warm attention that surrounded Barb and her family in her ¿nal weeks. Barb’s friends and acquaintances are welcome to join the family in a Memorial Service to be held at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Saturday, June 30th, 2012 at 1:00 P.M. Interment of Barbara’s cremated remains will follow in the Bethel Rose Garden Of Remembrance. A Reception will then be held in the Tea Room. In lieu of Àowers, donations can be made to Doctors Without Borders or to the North Okanagan Hospice Society 3506 27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C. V1T 1S4. Messages of condolence for Barb’s family can be sent to bethelchapel@uniserve.com Funeral arrangements have been made with BETHEL FUNERAL CHAPEL LTD., 5605 27th Street, Vernon, B.C.

KING

Jan. 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1922 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; June 17, 2012

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe our mother and grandmother has passed on. Alma Adeline King (nee Holland) has joined her husband, Orville King, her parents, Daniel & Pauline Holland and her siblings, Hilda (Baltakis), Irene (Folland), Leonard, Arnold, & Richard Holland. She was a New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baby, born Jan. 1/1922. Every trip to Mabel Lake revealed another story from her childhood. They were homesteaders, not strangers to hard work and living off the land. Life was difďŹ cult, but they knew how to make the most of it and Alma in her strength and stoic nature offered this to family and friends. She was an amazing self taught seamstress. Her grand children were blessed with clothes she made, from pajamas to prom gowns. Her green house produced trays of plants for all of us. Her knitting kept us warm and a visit from Grandma included bags of homemade perogies and baking. She combed through ďŹ&#x201A;yers and knew a good deal. When sugar, ďŹ&#x201A;our and soup were on sale, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d receive it on our next visit. Her children, Jim King and Margaret Bloor-King and her grand children, Mandy King, Jason King, Susan Bloor and Melanie Pinet were blessed with the generosity, love and support of this wonderful woman. She had the ability to put out abundant amounts of good food in a short time, from cooking at Fergusonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sawmill at Sugar Lake, to helping with Meals to Wheels and beating up pancake batter for OAP Pancake breakfasts. She was awarded a Life Membership in the British Columbia Old Age Pensionerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Organization, Lumby branch, for her loyal, dedicated and devoted services. Alma always loved playing crib and met her match playing with her friend, Pat Mackie. They kept a tally of games and shared in a lot of laughs. We celebrated her ninetieth birthday at Eagle Valley Lodge in Sicamous, her home for the last year of her life. She had hopes to make it to 100 but an infection hospitalized her and complications were too great to overcome. The family would like to thank Dr. Beever, Dr. Lourens, staff at Bastion Place, Salmon Arm and the Eagle Valley Housing Society of Sicamous for helping us care for our mom. As requested by Alma, there wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a service. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm (250) 833-1129. EMAIL condolences and share memories at www.ďŹ schersfuneralservices.com.

1932 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2012 Beloved husband of 53 years to Donna, father to Colin, Colleen (Geoff), Sean (deceased) and grandfather to Olivia and Chloe. Brian was born in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to Canada in 1966. He retired in 1993 from the Airlines and moved to Vernon in 2004. He died peacefully at home on Friday, June 22, after a courageous ďŹ ght with cancer. Vigil prayers will take place at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church, in Coldstream on Thursday, June 28 at 6 pm. Funeral Mass also at Our Lady of the Valley on Friday, June 29 at 11 am. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations may be made, in his memory, to a charity of your choice. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.

Protection urged against mosquitoes and West Nile virus and avoid alcohol. If your symptoms persist and seem to be getting more severe, call your doctor. “While the risk of becoming seriously ill from WNv infection is low, it is important to remember there are preventative steps that everyone can take in order to reduce the risk of infection,” said Jeyes. “The best protection against West Nile virus is to avoid mosquito bites and to reduce mosquito breeding areas.”
