Fireworks explode over Vernon Sunday night celebrating Canada’s 145th birthday. The annual event attracted a large crowd to line local roads while people attending Funtastic at the Vernon army camp also took in the show. Look for more Canada Day photos on A3.

Evacuation alert remains firm Residents along the Shuswap River should remain vigilant. Officials had anticipated removing the evacuation alert for the river, from Sugar to Mara lakes Tuesday. However, that didn’t occur. “The water has come up a bit because of rain Tuesday,” said Gord Molendyk, Regional District of North Okanagan spokesperson. “We will continue to monitor the river and we hope that by the weekend and anticipated warm weather, levels will go down again.” Molendyk insists there is no choice but to keep people prepared for a possible evacuation. “We want to be on the safe side,” he said. Howie Cyr, Enderby’s mayor, was hoping the alert would be lifted.

— Howie Cyr “The toll it’s taken on people has been significant in terms of people worrying about their homes and people giving of their time (volunteering),” he said. The areas hardest hit have been beyond city limits, including Mara, Grindrod and Ashton Creek. To get a better handle on the situation, North Okanagan Emergency Management has used remote-controlled helicopters to take digital photographs of the river at various stages of flooding.

“These remote helicopters allowed staff to get a very close-hand look at bridges and areas of concern where a much larger aircraft would not be able to fly,” said Molendyk. “The photographs that were taken could become very important at a later date when it comes to looking at repairs to not only the infrastructure, but also to private property in the area.” NORD is currently working with the provincial government to establish a process for residents to apply

for disaster financial assistance. While there has been localized flooding in the Enderby area, Cyr says residents’ thoughts have been with Sicamous, which was hit hard by flooding. “Those people out there were really up against it,” he said. Highway 97A between Grindrod and Sicamous reopened to traffic Sunday. It was closed June 23 after raging flood waters ripped the highway apart in the Two Mile area. As a result of ongoing repair work to the highway, motorists should be aware of construction three kilometres south of Sicamous until further notice. Shuswap Emergency Program safety teams are inspecting Sicamous area homes and businesses affected by flooding to determine if they are safe for occupancy.

June was damp but not enough to soak through the record book. The official record at the Coldstream Ranch weather station was 85 millimetres of rain last month, while there are unverified reports of close to 100 millimetres in other areas. “Vernon isn’t anywhere near record territory,” said Doug Lundquist, with Environment Canada. “There are at least four months wetter than this one. This may be the fifth wettest.” The record is 134 millimetres of rain in June 1923, while there was 121 millimetres in 1953. The last heavy rainfall was 95 millimetres in June 1990. Normal rainfall for June is 54 millimetres. “Last month was close to double the amount of (average) rain,” said Lundquist. “June is our wettest time of the year. It’s our monsoon season.” The average temperature for June 2012 was 15.2 while normal is 16.4. For those seeking summer, they won’t have to wait long. “We will get into the mid-30s for the weekend. It’s on, we’re on track,” said Lundquist.

Accident sends driver to VJH ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Speed is being looked at as a contributing factor to a single-vehicle Canada Day rollover accident. Emergency personnel responded to a report of a vehicle off the road on Highway 97 near Westwold at 3 a.m. “Emergency health services advised police that the driver was very dazed as a result of the accident,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “When our officer attended the scene, the vehicle was on the left side of the road facing towards Kamloops and the driver was already in the ambulance.”

The 26-year-old male driver from Kamloops was identified as the registered owner of the 1998 Mazda. His injuries were non-life-threatening, but he did receive a blow to his head and was transported to Vernon Jubilee Hospital. “A witness told police he saw the collision, that the vehicle was traveling towards Vernon, that the car had passed him just prior, and he felt the vehicle was speeding,” said Molendyk. “The witness saw the car spin around, there was a shower of sparks, and then disappear in the darkness.” Police are looking at speed as a possible factor, and no charges had been laid as of Tuesday. The driver has been released from VJH.

A Kelowna man is facing trafficking charges after being arrested near the Funtastic festival at the Vernon Army Camp. Vernon RCMP officers were conducting foot patrols near the Funtastic grounds Sunday night shortly past 10:30 p.m. when a member of the public alerted them to a man and woman smoking marijuana and drinking liquor. The pair were detained by police under the Liquor Act. “While speaking to them, one of the officers observed a pill bottle in a mesh pocket of a backpack beside the 24-year-old man from Kelowna,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord

Molendyk. “The bottle appeared to contain multiple pills of suspected MDMA or ecstasy.” The suspect was arrested for possession under the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act. Officers got a closer look at the pill container at the Vernon detachment, and it showed packaging consistent with trafficking. “It contained 10 small baggies, each containing six pills, and there were loose pills as well,” said Molendyk. The suspect is facing charges of possession for purpose of trafficking, and he will also face charges of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose as a canister of bear spray was located in the backpack.

Officers make downtown bust ROGER KNOX

Morning Star Staff

A Vernon man is facing drug charges following a mid-morning bust in the downtown core. Officers from the RCMP observed a man they believed to be trafficking drugs in the area of 27th Avenue and 33rd Street June 27 at 10:15 a.m. The 32-year-old suspect was placed under arrest by the officers. “When they searched the suspect, they recovered a quantity of drugs, cash and three cell phones,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord

Molendyk. The drug seizure included a small quantity of crack cocaine, and just more than a gram of heroin and a gram of crystal meth. Molendyk said the heroin was packaged individually, and the suspect had a scale consistent with the same. There were also calls coming into the cell phones while he was dealing with police. No court date has been set for the suspect who is facing three charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Teachers unhappy with new contract RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Teachers have inked a new contract but that doesn’t mean they’re happy about it. In a provincewide vote, a total of 21,044 teachers cast ballots and 75 per cent voted yes on the new agreement. The turnout rate was 52 per cent. “Judging from the percentage of teachers who voted, there was a reluctance to accept,” said Kevin Bader, Vernon Teachers Association president. “It (contract) feels

like a kick in the teeth because the main issues weren’t considered. Class composition wasn’t considered.” The B.C. Teachers Federation recommended acceptance of the contract because it averted the provincial government legislating a deal. “It was more preferential to an imposed settlement. We don’t know what would have happened there,” said Bader. In terms of extracurricular activities, Bader says individual

“It feels like a kick in the teeth because main issues weren’t considered.” — Kevin Bader teachers will decide if they volunteer for sports teams and clubs. “Teachers feel abused,” he said of government policies. Bader admits it looks like students are being punished if extra-curricular activities don’t resume. But he says broader issues must be considered.

“Kids are being hurt by class size composition. The limits are gone. We’re fighting for kids’ learning conditions,” he said. “Parents I’ve talked to understand that my own decision to stop volunteering was not an easy one to make. Frankly, they would rather I put my energy

into teaching their children. I don’t know of very many other jobs where there are concerns about employees not volunteering their own family time?” The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, which represents the province’s school districts, will

vote today on the terms of the proposed agreement. The Vernon School District is not disclosing if it supports the agreement. “I have an idea that most districts will be supportive but that’s just a guess,” said chairperson Bill Turanski.

About 100 people in Cherryville protest against a government proposal to apply pesticides Saturday.

Cherryville protests pesticide use Morning Star Staff

Cherryville residents are expressing concerns about chemical control of weeds in local forests. About 100 people gathered Saturday to oppose the Ministry of Forests’ proposal to spray 20,000 litres of pesticides near the Shuswap River. “The Ministry of Forests tells us that this spray program has been planned since 2008, showing how pesticides have become an integral part of the province’s arsenal to manage forests for the logging industry,” said Carla Vierke, a rally organizer. “Healthy forests that have plant diversity that provide balanced habitat for a variety of species have no need to spray.” Bee SAFE, a local environmental organization, is

concerned pesticides could have a negative impact on plant and animal species. “We don’t need the surfactants, sulphuric acid, and other contaminants used as inert ingredients in our watershed,” said Huguette Allen, with the group. “Bee SAFE’s letter to the ministry made it clear that we’re concerned that spraying is motivated by economic factors instead of ecological factors.” Vierke says the rally was only the beginning to opposing government activities. “Although 100 people could not immediately stop the helicopters, their perseverance would win out as long as they remained determined to take back the forest,” she said.

• Just Rocks • Art Knapp Plantland • George’s Gradall Service Ltd. • Foothills Developments Ltd. • The Desert Rock Company • Eljay Irrigation Ltd. • Inland Sprinkler & Landscaping • Mike Macnabb, Electoral Area C Director • Patrick Nicol, Chairman, RDNO • Leah Mellott - General Manager, Electoral Area Administration • Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure - David Solberg, Manager The project was conceived and organized by Bob Fleming, Electoral Area B Director for the RDNO. All the services supplied through his company, Earth Effects Landscaping, were donated.

tournament, Salmon Arm’s No Glove No Love made a few rookie mistakes. Like, for example, being unaware that the Army Camp location had 13 diamonds. “I went to four diamonds before I finally found the right one,” laughed left-handed catcher Alanna Guenter, who showed up about, oh, five minutes before the team’s opening game on DND Diamond 3. “They should have signs and bigger numbers on both sides of the screens.” After scoring a 12-8 win over the Fat Bats – a team dressed up as airplane pilots and flight attendants – No Glove No Love had a bit of a break (and its own tailgate party) before heading to Grahame Park for game two against Rally Time (no costumes), a match played in, well, a steady dose of “liquid sunshine.” “I don’t like this rain thingy,” said No Glove No Love outfielder Dave Johnson, especially when the game was cut short by the downpour, with the team trailing by two runs. “There needs to be covered dugouts at Fulton Secondary), put that in your report,” added second baseman Keitha Amdam, to a reporter. Overall, No Glove

No Love went 3-2 in its round-robin play, then lost its playoff game Monday morning to finish 3-3 in their inaugural Vernon appearance. “I’ve played in Enderby before but this is our first time in Vernon and it’s been great, other than the rain,” said shortstop Shaun Balicki. No Glove No Love got through play Saturday by picking up a Vernon player to have the required 10 players before fielding a full roster Sunday.

“He wore his glove, he got some love,” laughed first baseman Jodi Crocker. No Glove No Love is, of course, just one of hundreds of examples of why teams flock to the North Okanagan for Canada’s largest slopitch and music festival. To play ball, have some fun and enjoy some music. Many of the teams played in costumes ranging from neon tank tops and wigs, to pirate outfits to brides and grooms, complete with wedding gowns and

tuxedos. Lots of people also attend the Vernon portion for the musical acts, which, this year, included Vernon’s Darby Mills and the Headpins, Streetheart, former Foreigner lead singer Lou Gramm, the tribute group Aerosmith Rocks and Canada’s legendary party band, Trooper, who performed before a sold-out audience on Canada Day. And while everybody had to deal with the rain during the weekend, it did little to dampen teams’ spirit and enthusiasm. “It was a great tournament, a little disappointed with the rain on Saturday, but all the games went on,” said Brett Kirkpatrick, Funtastic Sports Society president. “As far as the music goes, I had nothing but positive responses about the music lineups each night.” Besides Vernon, which hosts more than 240 teams, another 36 play in Armstrong and 32 play in Enderby. “Both of those locations are like here, things ran very smooth, teams had a great time,” said Funtastic executive director Jim McEwan. “They get a lot of returning teams every year and it’s like a big family get-together in those communities every year.”

Farm families not first

B

.C.’s Liberal government claims it’s all about Families First, but that’s nothing more than lip service in the North Okanagan. The Ministry of Health continues to ignore the plight of local farmers and the financial hardships they have experienced at the hands of provincial meat regulations that came into force in 2007. “We’ve gone from 1,200 to 300 producers and we’re losing them daily,” said Janice Brown, a Regional District of North Okanagan director. Brown and other local politicians expected to plead the case of farmers directly to Health Richard Rolke Minister Michael de Jong last week. But an anticipated meeting with the minister shifted from Lumby to Kelowna because of his schedule, and then the Kelowna session was cancelled all together because of de Jong’s apparently jam-packed timetable. That left Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster scrambling and trying to reassure RDNO board members that the government truly does care about farmers and local communities. “I will contact the minister and set something up as soon as I can,” said Foster. When asked, Foster was reluctant to speculate on why his government isn’t addressing longstanding concerns about the regulations “I can’t answer that. I’m trying to get an answer to that myself,” he said. If de Jong were to take the time to meet with local elected representatives, he would understand that all they and area meat producers are demanding is equity with other regions in B.C. Currently in some parts of the province, the ministry issues class D and E licences to

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

meat producers. A class D licence allows for the on-farm slaughter of up to 25 animal units with one animal unit equaling 1,000 pounds liveweight. That would mean 25 cows, 2,500 chickens, 40 pigs and 300 lambs. A class E licence allows for the slaughter of up to 10 animal units. Such a license is unavailable in the North Okanagan, and that has created significant challenges for farmers wanting to slaughter their livestock and sell it at the farm gate. On the Liberal website, party president Sharon White says, “The B.C. Liberal Party is on the move — helping British Columbia deal with uncertainty in the global economy and putting families first. We would like you to be a part of this work.” It’s likely that White is unaware that it is government policies actually creating uncertainty in the North Okanagan economy — not world markets — or that the number of families dependent on meat production for their livelihood has dropped from 1,200 to 300 in five years. But farmers and consumers aren’t the only ones being left high and dry. Similar to the protracted debate over overcrowding at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, the Liberals are doing absolutely nothing to throw Foster a political lifeline less than a year away from an election. He keeps defending the party and its inability to correct a serious situation, but as a result, his own fortunes are undermined. North Okanagan politicians are now making plans to travel to Victoria to state their case for D and E processing licenses. It’s an unfortunate expense as de Jong was just here in the region, but it clearly indicates that the regional district isn’t ignoring the gravity of this economic crisis. Let’s hope de Jong can free up a few minutes in his busy schedule this time around.

The Conservatives have been busy in recent months, remaking Canada into the nation they’ve always dreamed of: one with a permanent underclass to provide an endless supply of cheap labour for the corporate elite. First the Conservatives began dismantling Canada’s Old Age Security program, stripping away any hopes for an early retirement from the working class. The government then set to work on Employment Insurance, bringing forward a proposal that would see any worker with the audacity to lose their job forced to take any work that comes along. But the most devastating blow might be delivered by the changes to Canada’s mortgage rules. Home buyers will now need to put at least 20 per cent down, with the amortization period reduced to 25 years. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said the new rules are designed to reduce the risk of bank foreclosures. It’s hard to argue with that, as it’s hard to foreclose on something you don’t own. And that’s the one certainty these new rules will bring about: an end to the dream of home ownership for thousands of Canadians. The vast majority of first-time buyers will not qualify for a mortgage under the new rules. And with so many buyers now out of the market, housing prices are bound to take a hit. For the vast majority of Canadians, their home represents their largest single investment. That investment is now about to be significantly devalued, if not out of reach altogether. Not to worry, just tack a couple more years of minimum-wage work onto your golden years. But all is not lost. Parliament has now passed legislation making it easier to transport wine across provincial borders. And God knows Canadian workers have ample reason to want to drown their sorrows. — Kelowna Capital News

Accessibility is being ignored

S

everal months ago, there was an article in The Morning Star concerning accessibility for the handicapped. It went on to say how much thought went into planning accessibility for the new library. Unfortunately, they forgot to tell the planners. Getting to the old library was fairly easy. Catch the bus, get off across the street, all level ground, and when going home, you didn't even have to cross the street. Now, it means a bus to the new terminal, then a four-block walk, and when you finally get there, you are faced with an uphill slope. When you do get inside the library, where are the large print and audio books? Past the children's corner at the front, up the stairs and in the back. Not very accessible. I would really like the decision-makers to know that what they've done is take the library away from us and many others. It has just become too difficult, especially at a time when our world is shrinking. This is a huge loss. Then there is the transit system. We had a system that was working just STUDENTS SUFFER I am writing regarding the teachers' dispute. As a parent I am very frustrated. The people who are being hurt by this dispute are the children. The teachers are stuck in the middle, and the government seems incapable of understanding what is going on. In a few years, the government will be back to its happy budget, the teachers may or may not get the better wages that they deserve, but the students will never get back what they have missed. In my case, both my children are in high school. This year, sports teams were cancelled and I just got a letter explaining why there will be no band trips next year. As a result, my children don't get these once in a lifetime opportunities. Beyond that, the longer term implications to those students that do well in sports, music or the arts are more than just the missing of an experience. How will they ever get a chance

fine. To quote a wise man, "the enemy of the good is better." Where the terminal was located, you have a large population of seniors and people renting. The majority of those people do not have, or cannot afford, cars to run their errands. Now, with these changes, you are obliged to walk hauling groceries. Think of the young mother with one or two toddlers and several bags of groceries. Before, she could cross the street to wait with the convenience of a shelter to get her children out of the weather.

to compete for an athletics or arts scholarship if they don't get any chance to develop? As a middle-class family, we are fining it harder and harder to do anything. Wages keep the same, prices keep rising. Now you have taken away another opportunity. I urge the government to rethink its position on education. Mary Thurber SPIRITS SOAR "Awesome, yeah, totally awesome." "Mom, I flew an airplane." "Mom, I saw our ranch." "Did you see? Did you see? I went in the helicopter." The enthusiastic response from a happy child is why most of us are involved with the COPA for Kids aviation program. Who can resist an ear-to-ear grin? Parents and grandparents expressed amazement at the generosity of the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association members. Pilots, who are also members of the Vernon Flying Club, once

A week or two ago, this sad sight was observed at the Safeway stop. An elderly gentleman was waiting for the bus. He got tired and lowered himself to the curb. When the bus arrived, he could not get up. Fortunately for him, there was someone able to help him up. Is this how we are going to treat our senior citizens? Across the street from where the gentleman was, there is a shelter and benches to rest on and wait for the bus. Why can't all of the buses turn down 34th Street, then the right on to Coldstream Avenue, pick up the old terminal and then

again donated their time, aircraft and fuel to give kids ages eight to 17 the thrill of flight at the Wings and Wheels event at the Vernon Airport Father's Day. A total of 101 youngsters registered to have a 20-minute flight in a small aircraft. Ten airplanes and one helicopter participated with a host of volunteers handling the onthe-ground duties to ensure that everyone had a safe, fun-filled and educational experience. Anyone wishing more information is invited to contact the flying club at vfchome@shaw.ca or the national office of COPA for Kids at www.copaforkids.org. Marion Ross SAD SITUATION I was an unfortunate witness recently to an event that has totally shattered my faith in humankind. For the past two weeks, there has been a deer and her two fawns living in my field. They have caused no problems for me or my family.

carry on as before? Why can't the shelters stay? Don't we deserve to have shelters and benches? Could the powers-that-be just leave us that much? We are forever being told to keep active, but how can we traverse life's hurdles if the barriers continue to be raised? I would really like to know why a few people have the power to make dayto-day activities more difficult for those already struggling. Now, I'm asking you to please listen and hear what I'm saying. I'm asking you to prove to us, not just lip service, that we are not disposable. I could go on for a long time to talk about the deplorable condition of our sidewalks, pedestrian lights that only drivers can see and a beautification program that consists of trees that take up half of the sidewalk. Vernon is not pedestrian-friendly and for the handicapped, it is a nightmare. Please listen to the people and understand what they are saying. Erma Soderquist

Recently, a man was walking along Okanagan Landing Road. This man let his dogs, for what I can only assume was pure entertainment, go after the new family. I understand these are wild animals but they were causing no issues towards this man. Kathleen Lilburn PREMIER'S DESCENT Most British Columbians are indifferent to Premier Clark’s disaster-in-the-making descent in the polls. However, you would expect those backroom Liberal powerbrokers, who manipulated her ascension to the leadership of the party and the province would show some compassion in her hour of need. You would think those doctors of spin would give her the one thing she really needs: a golden parachute and a plausible excuse for using it. Stay tuned. Those masters may be working on such a plan at this moment. Christy Clark has suffered enough. Somebody should

make it stop. Lloyd Atkins

Truck leads RCMP on chase ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

The Chevy pick-up that suddenly stopped and turned down an Armstrong side street at 2 a.m. Saturday, away from an RCMP road check, caught the eye of one of the police officers. The officer quickly got into his patrol car, which was conducting a road check at Pheasant Ridge Drive and Birban Avenue, and attempted to stop the vehicle which drove away at a high speed. “Our constable observed the vehicle swerving side-to-side in the lane of travel,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. Patrols did locate the vehicle on Pheasant Ridge

Court. A 20-year-old Kelowna resident, the registered owner and driver of the vehicle, was located with the assistance of a police dog service unit a short distance from the vehicle, and arrested for flight from police. “The suspect had a moderate odour of liquor on his breath, and he sustained injuries as a result of being in contact with our police dog,” said Molendyk. The man was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital for treatment of his contact with the police dog. He was issued a 24-hour suspension and his vehicle was towed away.

Lobbying for a new park is underway in one Vernon neighbourhood. The Ribbons of Green Trail Society and Foothills Community Association recently toured city politicians around a proposed natural area above the Foothills subdivision on Silver Star Road. “All of the area envisioned as becoming the park is privately owned, and while entirely within the City of Vernon remains designated as regional district nonurban, inherited from when it was incorporated within Vernon,” said Wynn Polnicky, with the Foothills Community Association. “Since the area is envisioned as being retained in its current

be minimal, hence the only expense of concern

would be that of initial acquisition of the land.” Trails connecting the area to the Grey Canal Trail, below Foothills, and to Silver Star Mountain were also discussed. Polnicky was pleased with the interest shown by members of Vernon council, as well as city staff who attended the tour. “The group then took a short walk to view an area of rugged cliffs and old-growth Douglas fir and Ponderosa pine proposed to be retained within the park,” he said. The Foothills Community Association and Ribbons of Green will present their vision for a park at the next Vernon council meeting Monday at 1:30 p.m. at city hall.

Enderby residents can tap into the abundance of fresh produce and skilled artisans around them. A pedestrian market is being launched on Cliff Avenue every Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. starting July 6. “The market will offer visitors fresh, local and organic fruits and vegetables, home made baking, breads and preserves, grains, meats, flowers, jewelry, gifts and so much more,” said Darren Robinson, with the Enderby Vitalization Initiative steering committee. “To add to the vibe of the new markets, many Cliff Avenue businesses will be launching special offers and menus, face painting for kids and several prizes to give out to marketgoers.” Cliff Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the block from George Street (Highway 97A) to Belvedere Street. “After several public consultations, it became clear that many wanted to see Cliff Avenue cleaned up and become re-established as a pedestrian-only street,” said Robinson. “Another comment that was heard several times was the Open Air Farmers Market was not currently in an ideal location, hidden from the view of highway traffic.” Through consultation with the organizers of the Open Air Farmers Market and with Cliff Avenue businesses, the steering committee decided to proceed with some trial runs to see how a pedestrian-only model could work on the community’s main street.

Schools make students feel welcome KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff

Fresh-baked cookies, hot coffee and a comfy couch all help make the Welcome Room feel like home. But it’s the support from staff and the chance to connect with each other that keeps Fulton Secondary School students coming back to the Welcome Room. “It’s comfortable to come here to work and everyone is really supportive,” said Grade 9 student Hayley Francis. “The support workers are always helping students that need help with their work. “It gets crowded in here, but everyone has fun. And the support workers care if we’re all right.” There are five other welcome rooms in the district: at Seaton, Charles Bloom and Vernon secondaries and Silver Star and Alexis Park elementaries. “It provides a space for aboriginal students to study, socialize, eat, obtain school supplies, learn about cultural events, and connect with community programs,” said Sandra Lynxleg, principal of aboriginal education for the Vernon School District. “Welcome rooms are based on a model used in South Peace secondary school, and we like the notion of it being welcoming. We use the medicine wheel in operating the room: taking into account the cultural, physical, emotional and intellectual well-being of students. “What is really unique about the room is that it belongs to the kids.” Grade 10 student Muyis Goodwater likes to visit the room to do his homework and is eventually looking at a career as an automotive technician. “The support workers are going to help me do a resume and get a part-time job,” he said. Grade 8 student Jaiden Oakley said having a place that’s comfortable and welcoming made the transition into high school that much

An after-school tutoring program provides help with academic studies twice a week and a language of math program offers students the opportunity to improve their basic math skills. “And they will talk about college and university and help us out with applying for scholarships,” said Francis, who is looking at a career in health care, either working in a lab or as an MRI technician. “So they can make sure I take the courses I need next year in Grade 11. “It’s easier to talk to someone here than

a counsellor. They are really understanding and easy to get along with and they are like family.” Opened three years ago, the Welcome Room is a place of support for both aboriginal and non-aboriginal students. Fulton vice-principal Jeff Huggins said it’s all about working towards graduation. “It’s about success in school,” he said. “It’s a place to go where they can gather together and get different types of support: academic support and cultural support. This is the hub of the aboriginal community at our school — you’ll have 20 kids in here and more spilling out into the hall. “The support workers know the kids and they will do anything to help them and they are very creative.” Fulton is home to 781 students. Of those, 126 are aboriginal, 22 from the Okanagan Indian Band. Lynxleg said the Welcome Room is an important key to the success of aboriginal students. “The room means our support workers have a place, so aboriginal students have a place to gather because this is what we do in our community — we gather,” she said. Aboriginal support

worker Jody Dargatz said keeping students in school and helping them feel connected to the school community is a key component of the Welcome Room. “And to help raise their self-esteem because all the adults here want them to succeed,” she said. “There is still a lot of racism and I find we have to raise their selfesteem, so our presence not only helps aboriginal students but it helps to have respect on both sides. As soon as our students step through the door, their selfesteem rises, so they’re better equipped to educate their peers.” Aboriginal support worker Kathleen Phelan is particularly focused on offering academic support to students. “Because we want them to be a part of who we are and we want to share what we have,” she said. “We support students with after-school tutoring, and we offer a late bus for students who live on Westside. I’m all about the academic support and making our students stronger, having a presence in this school, having people know that we are here, we don’t all look the same, not all the teachers and the students know who is aboriginal, you don’t know who you are standing next to.” Phelan said she’s

encouraged by the increase of awareness of aboriginal culture at Fulton and pleased that the school is now able to offer B.C. First Nations Studies 12 as well as classes in the Okanagan language. “The connection between the aboriginal department and the Fulton staff has been created, and it’s improved the rela-

tionships and teachers here are on board with aboriginal education,” she said. “The relationship between the aboriginal workers and the principal is huge: if you don’t have the trust, then it won’t work. And we always ask our aboriginal students to bring a non-aboriginal student with them.” Phelan’s dream is

to have a larger space, where team meetings can be held, and where all students can find a place in the room. Lynxleg said the recent appointment of DeDe DeRose as the province’s first B.C. superintendent of aboriginal achievement will go a long way towards strengthening the district’s aboriginal department.

Artists share similar aesthetic Morning Star Staff

Ashpa Naira Gallery, located on the Westside of Okanagan Lake, is presenting its second exhibition of the summer. Entitled not.com, the show features the work of artists Leonhard Epp and Lubos Culen, of Falkland and Vernon, respectively, and is comprised of paintings, and both three-dimensional and two-dimensional works. “not.com is an exhibition rich in visual investigations, ideas and cultural production. These ideas are presented within investigations of our social histories that encompass our cultural identities, as Culen expresses in his paintings,” said gallery owner Carolina Sanchez de Bustamante. Both Epp and Culen share the imprint of a European heritage and perhaps because of this imprint, they share sentiments from another continent, a different culture that informs their research into the human condition found within each of their studio practices. “Both artists are well-versed in juxtaposing the aesthetic with the anti-aesthetic as a means to present the complexities of their individual concepts, which they frame as visual ideas,” said Sanchez de Bustamante. not.com runs from July 1 to Aug. 5. Ashpa Naira Gallery, located on the westside of Okanagan Lake, is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday to Sunday,

He continues to write, record and tour relentlessly, and writes on his blog that he recorded a new song, called Today the Clouds, whilst in Toronto. “I am thrilled with how the recording turned out.... It will be released sometime soon this summer,” he said. Locals can catch Moir when he stops by the Talkin’ Donkey, located on 32nd Avenue, Friday at 8 p.m.

Vancouver-based musician Daniel Moir will showcase his talents at Vernon’s Talkin’ Donkey Coffee House, Friday. Moir last visited Vernon in Sept. 2011, when he shared the stage with Grapes of Wrath singer Kevin Kane, and has seen many changes since his recent move to B.C. from his hometown of Edmonton. “I’m a nature guy, which is one big reason why I moved here. It’s kind of like heaven for me,” he said. Fresh off performing at North by Northeast in Toronto, Moir has been on a fast rise since the 2010 release of his second album, Road. His music has seen placements with NBC and he has performed for crowds as big as 15,000.

Vernon Film Society

The Vernon Film Society is pleased to present the first film of the 2012 summer season, Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster. Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster won Best Canadian First Feature at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival and was nominated for five Genie awards. The film tells the true story of the notorious outlaw whose string of flamboyant, headline-grabbing bank robberies in mid-century Toronto made him Canada’s own Public Enemy No. 1. The dashing Boyd (Scott Speedman, Barney’s Version) returns from duty in the Second World War to the grim realities of normal life, where he is forced to work as a streetcar driver in order to support his young family. Barely able to make ends meet and filled with dreams of fame and fortune, Boyd impulsively picks up his

service pistol, disguises himself, and robs a bank. High on his newfound wealth and media attention, Boyd becomes a professional thief and it is only after he lands in prison that he realizes the pain he has caused his family. However, after escaping from jail, he returns to a life of crime. The film is shot entirely in Sault St. Marie and features an outstanding supporting cast. As Bruce Kirkland of The Toronto Sun said, “(This) colourful, bittersweet saga of Edwin Alonzo Boyd, a true story, now has an American-sized treatment... The film is compelling, beautiful to behold and populated with a great ensemble (cast).” Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster will be shown at the Vernon Towne Cinema Monday at 5:45 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. (Note time change). Tickets are available at the door and one week ahead at the theatre and the Bean Scene for $7.

The first ride was the hardest but Anni Rychtera did it and three others since. She was having chemotherapy treatment for NonHodgkins Lymphoma when she first heard about The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer to benefit the BC Cancer Foundation in 2008. “I was the sickest I had ever been in my whole life but I thought it would be exciting to be part of it someday,” she said. Then she read an article about the ride in The Globe and Mail. “It sparked my interest again and I dragged myself to the computer to sign up,” said Rychtera, a nurse-practioner who teaches at Sprott-Shaw Community College in Kelowna and is also a natural health practitioner. She was always active, loved sports and grew up riding her bike in her native Bavaria. She had done a 10-day bike ride along the Rhine River with her children and partner shortly before she was diagnosed with cancer. “You don’t think you will be able to do these things again but if you put a goal in your head and have a dream, there is a lot you can do. Getting ready for the ride gave me a lot of motivation for recovery, to show my children that Mom was going to be OK again.” She started training by walking her son to the school bus, then riding her bike increasingly longer distances. She met some other bikers from Vernon who were going to the ride and they trained together, but she had not done a ride more than 200K before the event. The ride was also a way for her to honour the memory of her mother, who died of cancer in January 2009, not knowing her daughter also had cancer. “I had worked in pediatric oncology and I was also thinking of so many of my little patients who didn’t make it. They were all in my heart. I wanted to ride to give people and their families hope that they can do it as well. You need to see the survivors, there are a lot of people surviving, you just don’t hear as much about them. People need to believe,” she said. The ride route is from Surrey to Mount Vernon, Wash. (130K) the first day and on to Redmond, Wash., near Seattle (121K) the second day. “The cancer survivors ride with a yellow flag. It seemed there were a lot of survivors that first year (2009). The atmosphere keeps you going — one man did the ride on a unicycle and another was on a tricycle. Everyone is so supportive and encouraging. My daughter was volunteer-

Anni Rychtera of Vernon completed her fourth Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer to benefit the BC Cancer Foundation June 16 and 17.

“If you put a goal in your head and have a dream, there is a lot you can do.” — Anni Rychtera ing at the lunch stops and I kept going to see her. The first time across the finish line, I was flying so high, I thought, ‘If I can do this, I can beat this bloody cancer.’” Rychtera completed the rides for the next three years and is symptom-free at the moment, waiting for her next scan as proof. She’s already looking ahead to her fifth ride which she will do with her daughter, and,

she hopes, a team from Vernon. “Every year the ride seems easier. It is doable and it’s worth it to help people who are fighting cancer. The first year the proceeds from the ride bought another PET scan for diagnosis and check ups of treatment progression. Before that, there had been only one scan for the whole province, so waiting times were cut in half. That means so much to people,” said Rychtera, who is a volunteer with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society, available to talk to people who are newly diagnosed, and who also volunteers with the Cancer Relaxation Group in Vernon. The 2012 Ride to Conquer Cancer had a record-breaking 3,011 participants raising $11.2 million for the BC Cancer Foundation. For more information see www.conquercancer.ca.

Kids invited to work the farm for a day Morning Star Staff

Come on out and get your hands dirty at Davison Orchards’ Farmer for a Day program. Kids are invited to join Linda (Davison) McVeigh to learn what it’s like to be a farmer for a day. The kids will meet three generations of working farmers as they experience a day of hands-on learning and fun. New this year, the

farm’s first ever Farmer for a Day program was offered early in the season to kids seeking a fun, interactive, and authentic farm experience and was a resounding success, and so four more dates have been added. “Our summer programs will reflect the seasonal activities on the farm,” said McVeigh, the program facilitator. “Kids will be kept busy exploring the crops

in various stages of growth, learning about irrigation, and harvesting in-season produce.” The day will start with a visit to the barns and animals, followed by a tour of the farm facilities including the apple peeling machines and the juicing room. Walking along the edges of the farm will give kids a chance to observe animal trails, beehives, and learn to identify some of the natural

Morning Star Staff

Young people from all over western Canada are heading to Vernon this month and are ready to get busy with some volunteer work. Members of the Junior Canadian Rangers (JCRs) will be in Vernon to attend the 4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group’s (4 CRPG) annual JCR Enhanced Training Sessions summer camp. Second Lieutenant Ian Carter is unit information officer for the 4 CRPG headquarters in Victoria. He said the young people, aged 12 to 18, will be involved in two pay-it-forward days July 18 and 22 where JCRs are available to help out in the Vernon area. “If you know where enthusiastic adult volunteers with adult supervisors might be helpful, we’re asking you to contact the Volunteer Bureau in Vernon,” said Carter. “The JCRs are proud and skilled youth who are involved in their communities. “The JCR program is a free, structured and meaningful program that helps preserve culture and traditions unique to each community while learning outdoor skills.” All JCRs learn Canadian Ranger skills, traditional skills and life skills, such as first aid, navigating, making shelters, efficiently living off the land, learning how to speak in public, and living a healthy life. Typically, patrols meet on a weekly basis with three supervised field exercises a year. If you or your organization would like to hire these youth volunteers, please contact Twylla Genest, manager of the Vernon and District Volunteer Bureau, at 250-545-0585.

Q:

I have a small amount of water coming into my basement, a friend told me I should move my downspout from my roof gutters so that it drains farther away from my house, what do you think? I think your friend is right. One of the major reasons that water gets into basements & one of the easiest to fix is your downspouts. Downspouts that dump water closer than 4 ft to your home are introducing a lot of extra water against your foundation. If your foundation wall has even hairline cracks in it, & almost every house does, the water will find it way through the crack and into the basement or crawlspace. If there are no cracks it can flood the perimeter foundation drains, & if the perimeter drains are collapsed or plugged, the water will find its way into the basement. A good rule to follow is if your downspouts drain onto the ground, ensure that they drain at least 4-6 ft away from the home. At one time there may have been downspout extensions but they were in the way for foot traffic of mowing lawns, so they were removed. A good solution for that is to get a hinged downspout leader that can be lifted out of the way when necessary. If your downspouts drain underground, ensure that dirt & debris cannot enter the underground drains. Another thing to remember is that if an upper roof level downspouts drains onto a lower roof, that part of the lower roof will wear out much sooner & will need repairs due to the scouring action of the storm water with roof grit in it. Add a downspout extension to the lower roof gutters. Remember, water is one of the biggest enemies of a home, & anything you can do to keep the water out is a very good thing.

Have you heard of people who go to fast food restaurants in order to eat salad? Perhaps that’s the intention, but rarely reality. Always look for vegetables and lean meat, or what you eat at home. Also, don’t drink your calories with pop and juices, and instead of dessert have an espresso or tea. Plan ahead. Go online and look up nutritional information. For instance, a 3-piece fish and chips sounds not too bad (fish is good for you, after all), until you find out that there are a whopping 1,231 calories in that meal, with 106% consisting of your daily fat requirement. Too many meals like this will definitely add up to inches around your waist.

Q: A:

I want to update a few rooms in my home with new furniture, appliances, and mattresses. Are there payment plans available?

There are many payment plans that you can take advantage of. You can finance from 3 months all the way up to 2 years, with equal payment plans, or do not pay plans. The process is actually quite simple and only requires you to fill out an application form which is processed in as quickly as 5 minutes! Once approved, you can choose the appropriate finance plan that best suits your needs. Make sure to ask about the details of the finance plan you decide to go with. Furniture, appliances, mattresses and electronics can all be financed. So the timing has never been better to buy the furniture you’ve always wanted, or those new appliances that you’ve been dreaming of, or a new mattress to guarantee a good night sleep!

Are there new marketing techniques?

Marketing is an ever evolving industry and there are always new methods and opportunities arising. One of the latest marketing tools we’ve been using is an Active QR Code. Now QR Codes themselves have been around for a while (they are the square barcodes that look like the one at the bottom of this column). Original QR codes usually only go to one place (like a website link or a phone number). The difference with Active QR Codes is that when scanned, they link you to a live mobile website that you can change at any time. Not only do Active QR Codes provide the opportunity to have timely information, it is also set up to include a variety of contact mediums (website, email, phone number, address, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, etc). You can even include digital coupons for promotions you are running. For our clients it has been a successful, engaging tool that bridges print and online media.

How big should I make my Island?

Islands are a very special feature to kitchens design and added functionality. Size is proportionate to available space. Your egress from Island C/Top front edge to wall C/Top front edge should be between 36”- 42”. 42” being ideal and if space allows I have done a few at 48” but that should be the rare exception. The reason for this is in your footing. You should only be transferring your position in one clean step, otherwise you are shuffling a half step and this creates a trip zone and wears on your flooring. Now you can make the island as big as you have room for as long as it does not extend beyond the footprint of the kitchen or interfere with natural traffic flow. Your work stations should all be on no more than two sides of an island, other wise it will become an impediment to function and flow. Big Islands should all be one level. The raised eating bar is more for smaller or angled islands. The bigger the island the more features is should have to make a grand statement such as posts, flutes, corbels, library panel, furniture kick, glass doors or wine racks etc.

Q: A:

What are electrolytes and why are they important?

Electrolytes are minerals in your blood that carry an electric charge, and have an effect on the amount of water in your body, your blood pH, and muscle function. Electrolytes in the blood include sodium, calcium, potassium, chlorine, and magnesium. Electrolytes are lost when you sweat excessively, and must be replenished by drinking plenty of fluids. Now that the weather is warmer and many of us have increased activity levels, it is important to stay adequately hydrated and replenish our electrolytes. There are many sports drinks available in stores, but unfortunately these can contain high levels of sucrose, artificial flavours and colours. Following is a recipe for a healthier electrolyte drink: Natural Electrolyte Recipe (makes 1 litre of electrolyte solution) 1 tsp salt 1 tsp baking soda 4 tsp honey or maple syrup 4 tsp lemon juice 1 litre water

Q:

I’ve never had my air conditioner serviced. Is this something that I should be doing, and what do you check for?

A:

Absolutely! Like any car or truck, it’s a good idea to have any mechanical equipment checked by a trained professional for abnormalities and signs of wear and tear. Many serious and often costly repairs can be caught early or prevented by having a simple check-up. We recommend having this done every other year, unless your equipment is really old, in which case it may be a good idea to have it checked annually. The most common problem with air conditioners are minor refrigerant leaks that are easy to check; but often lead to inefficient operation, and compressor failures. Most compressors will last about 5 years running on a low refrigerant charge - right about the time your warranty runs out. So get those A/Cs checked out!

Vernon duo hoists Hankey Cup Semeniuk and Kimoto topple Tilander and Knights in A final Morning Star Staff

Soggy weekend conditions didn’t dampen the mood at the 86th annual Hankey Cup Doubles Tennis Championships at the Kalamalka Country Club. Spectators were entertained by some high-calibre tennis as more than 70 participants came from Vancouver, Calgary and the Interior. The event included the men’s and women’s A and B doubles, and mixed A and B doubles, with teams guaranteed a minimum three matches in the round-robin format. “What can we say about the weather?” said Ray Kimoto, tournament director. “We were very fortunate to get through the matches the first day, but we made it.” It was an all-Vernon showdown in the men’s A final, with Dean Kimoto and Todd Semeniuk of the Kalamalka club sweeping Craig Tilander and Mike Knights, 6-2, 6-3. In the semifinals, Kimoto and Semeniuk overwhelmed Paul Morgan (Vernon) and Winston Pain (Salmon Arm), 6-2, 6-0, while Tilander and Knights turned back Doug Holman (Vancouver) and Bob Langford (Salmon Arm), 6-4, 6-4. In the B pool, the Vernon duo of Steve Benesh (Kal) and George Sousa brushed back Curtis Hamilton and Dave Bailie, both of Penticton, 6-4, 6-3. In the semis, Benesh and Sousa stopped Joel dePfyffer (Kelowna) and Mike dePfyffer (Vernon), 6-5, 6-2, while Hamilton and Bailie turned back Joe Groves and Asher Yakony, both of Kelowna, 6-2, 6-4. In women’s action, Meryl Ogden (Vernon) and Rosie Schaich (Kelowna) outlasted the Vernon tandem of Eva Koksalova and Hailey Crampton in the most exciting match of the day, 4-6, 6-4, 10-7. Third place went to the Kal club duo of Anne Ellis and Sandra Liedl. In the B final, the Penticon team of Sharon Brownell and Mary Wu grounded Cynthia Langford and Judith Heunis, both of Salmon Arm, 6-3, 6-5. In the semis, Brownell and Wu defeated Vernon’s Lynne Smith and Judi McIntosh, 6-2, 6-2, while Langford and

Heunis turned aside their Salmon Arm clubmates, Maria Van Buskirk and Supha Phonchiangwang 6-5, 6-4. Ogden and Knights cruised to a straight sets victory (6-0, 6-3) over Koksalova and Tilander to take the Mixed A title. In the semis, Ogden and Knights iced Rosie and Joe Schaich of Kelowna 6-2, 6-3, while Koksalova and Tilander swept Lyse Tremblay and Dan Albrecht, both of Kelowna, 6-0, 6-0. In the B bracket, the Vancouver sister-brother team of Susan and Ben Moxon turned back Liedl (Vancouver, Wash.) and Gordon Mann (Vernon), 6-1, 6-2. The Moxens advanced to the final by toppling the Kamloops duo of Jan Newlove and Randy Heslop, 6-2, 6-1. Liedl and Mann earned their finals berth with a 6-3,

6-1 decision over Kelowna youngsters Taylor Charron and Brandon Czaja. “Congratulations to all the winners and participants, who were provided with snacks and lunches for the three days and a social barbecue for Sunday evening,” said Kimoto. “Thank you to the spectators who came out throughout the three days to watch some great tennis at the Kalamalka Country Club.” Kimoto thanked his hard-working committee of Gordon Mann, Benesh and Dave Valouch for their contribution, grounds keeper Tony Bastian for all his help, Max Voets Coffee Roasting for supplying the coffee, and Centre Court Racquets of Victoria for the door prizes.

Vernon United squads secure Canada Day glory in Kelowna Morning Star Staff

Vernon United teams pocketed two gold medals and one bronze in the Kelowna Canada Day Rep Soccer Tournament. Vernon stopped Southwest United of Calgary 1-0 in the Under 13 Boys final Monday in a battle of undefeated teams. Vernon set the tone early with great pressure and a relentless attack. Six minutes in, Malcolm Wiens intercepted a pass across the defensive line, went wide around the keeper and slotted it into the net. The locals, coached by Rolf Hirschkorn,

Rob Eggert and Will Wiens, were by far the stronger team creating plenty of chances. The posts were Calgary’s best friend as Vernon struck the uprights four times. “If half of those had gone in it wouldn’t have even been close,” quipped Hirschkorn. But close it remained to the end, providing a very entertaining contest. Calgary had one glorious chance snuffed out by Langdon Kersey clearing the ball off the line, coming to the aid of his keeper. Added Hirschkorn: “All the boys brought

easy

their best of the season, with particular kudos to Liam Hennig, Connor Johnson, Matthew Jackson, Tiege Doughty and Cameron Mackenzie. Charis Ondrik collected his third Man of the Match with his stellar play in the midfield. Elias Jensen preserved the win with his third shutout of tournament play this year and finished the season with a stellar GAA of 0.79.” United came from behind to brush back Kelowna 3-2 in their tournament opener. Hennig supplied the equalizer midway through the first half after Wiens created

a turnover. Shortly after, Johnson played a through ball to Wiens who finished with his left for the lead. Before the half was out, Vernon extended its lead to 3-1 when Wiens stole a ball off a defender and lobbed it over the keeper. Mathew Jackson, Kersey and Doughty had solid games and Sam Eggert had a man-of-the-match performance. United then showed a killer instinct for the first time all season in a 6-0 ambushing Alberta’s Airdrie FC.

Under 13 boys explode on offence Continued from A25 Peter Hirschkorn put a beautiful free kick into the area that was run onto and clinically finished by Wiens early in the game. Four minutes later, Vernon doubled its lead when Ondrik took a feed from Kenzel AartsRoman and curled a shot from outside the 18 into the top right corner. Three minutes later, Jay Peterson sent Wiens in alone and he went wide on the onrushing keeper and buried the ball into the empty net. Thirty seconds into the second half, Wiens received a gift from an Airdrie defender and quickly punished the surprised keeper low to the left side. Three minutes later, Johnson made a terrific run up the right side and crossed the ball into the area where it was met expertly by a Jensen header. Hennig and Eggert had opportunities for more offensive roles as the coaches decided to take the foot off the gas. Cameron MacKenzie rounded out the attack by cleaning up the garbage after an Ondrik (Man of the Match) left foot didn’t make it through the crowded defence. Reed Cashato and Jensen shared the shutout. In the final game of group play, United held off Nelson 2-1. In the 21st minute, Cashato dribbled up the right flank and cut in along the goal line before flipping the ball back out to a waiting Kersey for the first goal. The teams traded chances for the rest of the half with Nelson’s closest opportunity coming when they rang one shot off the post. Nelson equalized a minute into the second half Nelson, but at 14 minutes, Vernon was awarded a penalty on a questionable call. Wiens struck it off the crossbar and out of play. Redemption came a minute later when Ondrik (Man of the Match) played a perfectlyweighted ball through to Wiens, who maneuvered past the last defender to score on a nice shot. Jensen preserved the win and was aided by superb play by the back four of Peterson, AartsRoman, Hirschkorn and Eggert.

Stinger girls strike gold Coach Brad Wyse put together a mixture of U12 development, U12 house, U10 and U9 girls to play in the Canada Day Tournament. The Stingers came together and formed a formidable team which went 4-0 to win their division and claim the gold medal. Vernon stopped Okanagan Mission 1-0 (3-2) in penalty kicks in Monday’s championship. “The girls played a much stronger possession game and created more scoring opportunities than they did the first time the teams played (1-0 win by Vernon),”

said Stinger assistant coach Mike Bertram. “The defence again stood out leaving Shauna Bradley with no tough saves during the game. Lailah Akkurt, Player of the Game, was dominant at centre back and had her best game of the tournament. “Amandeep Malhi was a strong stay-at-home defender all tournament long.” Bradley made three big stops in the shootout to record her fourth straight shutout. Stinger shootout scorers were Jai Sidhu, Maddie Smith and Malhi. The Stingers opened with a 4-0 win over Prince George, with Lydia Lavigne jumpstarting the offence on a nice individual run before finding the right corner. Libby Wyse outworked the defence and beat the keeper low to the near side for the second goal. Sidhu buried the last two goals. U10 call ups Callie Bertram, Emma Lockwood and Dhillon Sidhu had strong games at the midfield position. Lavigne was the Player of the Game. In Game 2, the Stingers defeated OK Mission 1-0

when Lavigne scored on a long shot that beat the keeper to the top corner. Lavigne charged the ball and didn’t let it bounce which led directly to her goal. Bradley made two great stops in net to preserve her second straight shutout. Smith was the Player of the Game as she anchored the defence and limited the opposition’s chances. The third game resulted in a 6-0 win over Rutland. Bradley again pitched the shutout behind a great effort by the defence anchored by Olivia Weber-Concannon, Claire Schmidt and Brianne Bertram. Paige Brown played strong at midfield and Sydney Embleton had her best game creating many scoring chances and slotting home a goal. Lavigne, Lockwood and game MVP Sidhu, with the hat trick, did the rest of the scoring.

U12 boys bag bronze In U12 Boys play, Vernon United clipped the Calgary Rangers 1-0 (2-1 in penalty kicks) in Monday’s bronze-medal match. United keeper Noah Schneider was brilliant in the shootout, only getting beat by the opening Ranger shooter. Striker Ben Purvis, named game MVP and

tournament -game ball recipient, connected on United’s first shot and Alex Ogunbiyi won it with a hard, low blast with Vernon’s fifth shot. Nick Mitchell, the fourth United shooter, also converted, but skied his re-do, ordered because he didn’t wait for the referee’s whistle. Defenders Kody Kongsdorf, Declan Stevenson, Joe Eggert, Dylan Huber and Zach Agar, along with midfielders Dexter Weiten, Steve Benischek and striker Brett Hansen, had solid showings. Vernon, coached by Roy Cooper and Kevin Mitchell, grounded Calgary West Real Madrid 1-0 in their Saturday afternoon opener. Noah Schneider, named Vernon’s tourney MVP, earned the shutout in a good back-andforth game with Vernon enjoying the edge in play. Calgary struck the post on a penalty shot in the 15th minute, while United, led by Ben Purvis, Mika Burns and Braeden Cooper, had several good chances before the end of the first half. Vernon kept the pressure on in the second half, and with a few minutes remaining, Brendan Yakura ran up the left wing with the Calgary keeper coming out to challenge. The ball bounced off a Calgary defender to Ogunbiyi who looped the ball beautifully over everybody into the back of the net to earn Man of the Match. Vernon then bowed 5-0 to eventual champion Scottish United, with keeper Nick Mitchell making several big saves against the fast and ultra-skilled Edmonton boys. Scottish United converted on a nice shot near the 10th minute, as Vernon’s great speed kept damage to a minimum in the first half. Edmonton added three goals in the final half, one off a rebound of a penalty shot stopped by a diving Mitchell. Hustling Brendan Yakura took Man of the Match for Vernon. Vernon then bowed 2-0 to losing finalist Edmonton Juventus with United starting strong once again with a good chance (Purvis to Burns to Man of the Match Cooper) in the opening minutes. In the 20th minute, Juventus placed a hard, high shot just out of the reach of Schneider for the lead. Vernon got great hustle from their entire roster, especially Yakura and Weiten. Juventus started the second half with some dangerous chances in tight and only the great work by Schneider kept it a 1-0 game, however, he injured his knee on a fearless challenge. Mitchell came in as his replacement late in the first half, facing several shots and making some great saves.

Striker Gord Howard doesn’t need much time or space to find the net. Howard fired his 13th goal of the season Monday night at the Leko Precast Camels clipped the Silver Stars 1-0 in Capri Insurance 45+ Soccer League action at Marshall Field #2. The Camels (9-2) came out strong and controlled things for the first 15 minutes. Veteran Al Murphy won several air balls in the 18 but was unable to put anything on net. The slumping 4-3-4 Stars’ defence of John Burns and Steve Coombs played well in keeping the Camel shooters to the outside. Howard converted on a sweet through ball from Chris Reeves in the 30th minute. Reeve’s pass went right through defender Dan Ondzik onto Howard’s feet and he quickly slotted the ball to the right side past keeper Ted Lurkins. Bill Graham almost scored a Mario Balotelli-like header near the end of the half for the Stars, but the ball just cleared the crossbar past Dave Dutcher’s outstretched arms. In the second half, the Stars finally woke up and midfielders from both teams began to battle hard to control the play. Dan Zieske and Al Betton were strong for the Camels, while Mahmoud AbdelKader, Rob Bauml and Gerson Betman all knocked the ball around well for the Stars. Neither keeper was tested in the second half. The Stars’ Steve Fitzpatrick was assessed a yellow card and Ondzik a red card, both for dissent, by referee Wayne Aasen.

Bosman boys hold off Pushor Mitchell 2-1 Bosman Accounting of Vernon put in a gritty showing as they held off Pushor Mitchell Advocates 2-1 at Parkinson 16 Field. Strikers Henk Bosman and Carl McLennan worked gorgeous give-and-goes for goals seven minutes apart shortly after the Advocates went up 1-0 in the 10th minute. Bosman (De Drie Fleschjes Pub man of the match) connected on a diving header for the equalizer, while McLennan nicely finished a rebound off a Bosman shot for the winner. The accounting crew played with 10 men until standout midfielder Ian Murphy showed up in the 35th minute and played a stellar game. Defenders Chris Nielsen, Gerry Geelkerken, Alex DeBoersap and Bob Fleming anchored a stingy back line, while Tom Ouchi was aggressive in centre midfield as Bosman improved to 3-8. The Advocates dipped to 3-7-1.

Penticton brushes back Ogopogos 4-0 League-leading Penticton United had to work extra hard to brush back feisty Big O Tire/Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos 4-0 at Dale Meadows Park in Summerland. Although Penticton (10-1) got off to a early lead, the Ogogopos enjoyed several good chances, only to be denied by Penticton’s courageous keeper charging toward the high-scoring duo of Roland Riedstra and Mark Wasylyk. Rueben Cerventez, John Garner, Henry Czerwonka and Gary Dill also created some offence, while midfielder Brad Conlin just missed on a rocket above the crossbar. United made their chances count and Big O Tire (6-5) almost broke the shutout in the dying minutes when Dill took a back pass from Wasylyk but drilled it over the net. North Country Appraisals Kickers stretched their winning streak to four games by shading host Lake Country 2-1 at Beasley Park. North Country earned a penalty shot within the first 10 minutes but Mike Francis’s shot was saved by keeper Todd Ryder.

IGA came out looking like Spain and went up 3-1 within 15 minutes on goals from Rich Woodhouse, Tony Gonzales and Lionel Hoffman. Grant Campbell and Dante Zanatta added 35-yarder each at 25 and 30 minutes, and Gonzales added one more just before the half to make it 6-0. Brandt’s Creek came out for the second half looking shellshocked but rallied well to prevent IGA scoring any more goals. Brandt’s keeper Dave Gadd had an excellent second half saving numerous shots from the IGA forwards and midfield. Ageless Reid Freeman scored a consolation goal for Brandt’s after a goalmouth scramble with 10 minutes remaining. IGA moved to 9-1-1, while Brandt’s slipped to 4-6-1.

Chairperson needed at CSRD BARB BROWER Black Press

The death of longtime Columbia-Shuswap Regional District director Ted Bacigalupo has created a vacancy on the regional district’s board. First elected to the board in 1999, Bacigalupo handily won his seat as South Shuswap director for the fifth time in last November’s municipal election, and took on the role of CSRD chairperson for the first time. The regional district will begin the process of filling the vacancies at the July 19 board Ted Bacigalupo meeting, where directors will elect a new chairperson. David Raven, mayor of Revelstoke, is the current vice-chairperson. If he decides to run for the chairperson’s position and wins, directors will then have to elect a new vice-chair as well. Also at the July 19 meeting, it is anticipated a chief elections officer will be appointed and the byelection process to fill the South Shuswap seat will begin. “Under the Local Government Act, a chief elections officer must be appointed as soon as possible after a vacancy occurs,” said Carolyn Black, deputy manager of corporate administration services. “And the voting date must be set no later than 80 days after the appointment, so the byelection would have to happen before Oct. 6.” Black says she expects the byelection will take place in late September.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Because your nobler instincts are so pronounced, chances are you will make some sacrifices on behalf of others without worrying about what’s in it for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Rather than spend your time simply coasting along, try to find a project or endeavor where you can express your creative urges. Busying your mind and hands will prove to be quite rewarding.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The efforts you expend for beautifying your surroundings will turn out to be extremely pleasing to you and everyone else who sees your place. It’s work that will stand the test of time, as well.

Bridge by Phillip Alder WHEN HONORS TOUCH, TELL PARTNER Basketball player Michael Jordan said, “To be successful, you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don’t isolate.” To be successful on defense at the bridge table, you have to be selfish, to analyze. Then, though, be unselfish by thinking about partner. Stay in touch with his problems and try to help him. In this example, South is in four spades. West leads the heart ace. How should East analyze the deal, and what should he do? South’s two-spade rebid shows a minimum opening,

12 to 14 points, and at least a six-card suit. From the dummy, it should be obvious to West that his side needs to take four red-suit tricks. East will think similarly, except that his partner might have a trump trick. Then East needs to help his partner by dropping the heart queen at trick one. This shows the queen and the jack. (It cannot be a singleton queen, because then South would have six hearts and would have rebid two hearts.) It suggests to West that he might like to underlead his heart king at trick two. Perhaps East can do something from his side of the table -- attack diamonds successfully -- that West cannot do himself.

As you can see, this is the only way to defeat four spades. The rule is that when you cannot win the trick because either someone has already played a higher card in the suit led than your best or you are discarding, play the top of touching honors (if you can afford to do so, of course).
