Spall goes back in time for 120th bash ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Mike and Sheila Luniw think there should be more community meetings in Spallumcheen like the one held Monday. Married 54 years, the Luniws were among the 100 people who turned out at the municipal office to help the township kick off its 120th birthday celebrations. “It used to be back in the day, there would be lots of these community meetings,” said Mike, born and raised in Armstrong, a still-working electrical contractor who turns 88 in September. “You’d come to these, meet your neighbours and friends, and discuss things that were going on.” Owners of the Olde School House off Pleasant Valley Road – the first school on B.C.’s mainland – the Luniws had a chance to chat with friends and neighbours over celebratory cake, ice cream and Dad’s Old-Fashioned Root Beer. “It’s been a very pleasant evening,” said Sheila. The provincial government chipped in $75,000 to help the township with its birthday celebrations. The money comes from $800,000 the province doled out to communities to celebrate local arts and culture in milestone anniversary festivities. “The generous support of the B.C. government has allowed us the opportunity to draw our community together for arts and cultural events,” said Mayor Janice Brown who, along with

and Dianne Strohm, who was wearing a red-and-white fulllength handmade dress complete with matching bonnet. “I came here dressed up because it’s a party, a celebration of Spallumcheen,” said Strohm, who has lived in the township her entire life. Coun. Andrew Casson, looking like he stepped off a riverboat, joined his brothers Stephen, James and Daniel as the Casson Quartet, serenading the crowd with their barbershop quartet renditions of Beautiful Saviour and Hello My Baby. Brown was joined by former mayors Will Hansma and Guenter Rieger in cutting a celebratory cake. During the council meeting, held after the celebration, Rieger – who was mayor during Spallumcheen’s centennial birthday in 1992 – presented Brown and each councillor with a token of his appreciation for being invited. “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mayor Janice Brown and members of this council on this special day by celebrating the 120th birthday of Spallumcheen,” said Rieger. “As I said many times when I was mayor, I was very proud to be the mayor of the most scenic municipality in B.C. I hope you will be able to say the same when you complete your terms.” Coun. Rachael Ganson concluded Monday’s celebrations by handing out $33,000 to several organizations to help with 120th anniversary celebrations. The next big birthday event is at O’Keefe Ranch Aug. 12.

Enderby and RDNO are funding advertising in a physicians’ magazine as a way of increasing the area’s profile. McCune believes doctors will be attracted to Enderby because of its social and recreational amenities and small town atmosphere. “It’s a great part of the world and it shouldn’t be difficult to attract someone here,� he said. Cyr cautions residents to be patient as the recruitment process proceeds. “There are no doctors yet but we have to maximize our opportunities. There is reason for optimism.� Besides the health centre, there are two doctors at a private clinic in Enderby.

The axe has been taken to a part of Vernon’s history. A heartnut tree that was at least 48 years old was removed between city hall and the museum Tuesday. “There was a concern for public safety,� said Shirley Koenig, operation services manager. “We don’t want a limb coming down on someone.�

The fate of the tree was sealed July 10 when a large limb broke off and crashed to the ground. An arborist determined the tree only had about 30 per cent livable area left. The extensive decay meant it was unlikely the 30-foot-tall tree could survive. “The tree was basically dead,� said Koenig. The tree had become a landmark over the decades. Children were known to climb on its limbs and it wasn’t uncommon to find people sitting under it eating lunch or just taking a break. In the fall, nuts from the tree would cover the ground. “It’s a real loss and it’s unfortunate. But the tree had reached its life expectancy,� said Koenig. With the tree gone, root removal and remedial work of the site will be next. It’s anticipated another tree will be planted in the fall. “We are looking at our options,� said Koenig of what kind of tree species may be selected. “We will try and put in as large a tree as we can get but it won’t be the same size (as the old tree).�

Two canoeists were spilled into Okanagan Lake Saturday after a speed boat sideswiped

the canoe. Lake Country RCMP received a report at 5:15 p.m. Saturday of a collision between a canoe

and speed boat near Whiskey Cove. “According to witnesses, a speed boat entered the cove north-

The Corporation of the

City of Vernon Meter debate losing steam

TRONSON ROAD SANITARY SEWER - CAPITAL WORKS PROJECT T-ENG-12-32 Bennett Contracting Ltd., working for the City of Vernon, will be constructing the sanitary sewer main and related infrastructure in Tronson Road. The construction area will be from the intersection at Tronson and Bella Vista Road, for approximately 2km west, to the Beachcomber Bay Boat Launch

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

One Enderby official says it’s time to pull the plug on the smart meter debate. Mayor Howie Cyr says the ongoing discussion over B.C. Hydro’s remote monitoring devices is consuming too much city council and staff time. “There are people who have strong feelings but at some point, we have to say everyone has had a chance to discuss it,” he said. “We have to move on. We have infrastructure issues and flooding issues. We have to Howie Cyr direct our energy towards things we have control over.” The city has been under pressure from some residents to try and ban smart meters, but Cyr isn’t sure council will take a stand for or against the devices. “Anything we do or say is purely symbolic and has no teeth,” he said of the lack of jurisdiction. “We asked Hydro not to install meters before they presented to council and they carried on.” A presentation on smart meters occurs today at the Enderby Drill Hall, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. The event will feature speakers from Citizens for Safe Technology, a company that specializes in electrical frequencies and Interior Smart Meter Awareness.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the last week of July 2012 and continue to November 2012. The construction will result in minor delays to local traffic. For further details of the project please contact Rob Fortuin, P. Eng., at Focus Corporation phone: 250-980-5500 or visit http://www.vernon. ca/index.php/projects/tronson-road-sanitary-sewer/ The City of Vernon would also like to remind drivers to obey Flag Persons, posted construction signage and slow down through the construction zone.

Falkland deserves better

P

olitics can be the art of passion — taking a stand, sticking up for the disenfranchised. But you wouldn’t know it from listening to Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes. When approached about Falkland possibly being torn out of his riding and tossed in with Kelowna, Summerland, Merritt and Princeton, there wasn’t any inflection or tone. The response left one wondering if he supports or opposes the move “We have to carve up ridings some how but this is just the first proposal,” he said. Richard Rolke Yes, there are reasons for redistributing federal boundaries to address shifts in population and ensure equitable representation. But beyond the dry, text-book explanation, there is the issue of community identity. Once again, Mayes was pressed. Does he have any concerns about Falkland getting the short-shift from the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission, the independent body responsible for scribbling new lines on a map. His rather mundane response was, “Discussions will be ongoing and we will come up with recommendations if we can’t live with them.” I don’t doubt that Mayes has a genuine interest in Falkland’s well-being but where’s the identification with people he has served since 2006 and the raw emotion over the prospect of losing them? Mayes’ subdued handling of the situation was more than outdone by Rene Talbot, Falkland’s veteran regional district director. Never one to mince words, Talbot took dead

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

aim at the proposal. “It’s a bit of a joke,” he said, pointing out that new boundaries would effectively strip Falkland of any reasonable federal representation. “Where would our MP be located? If you wanted to have a meeting with their office staff, you’d have to drive to Kelowna or wherever they are located.” And geography would become even more challenging during the winter when snow and ice can make roads treacherous. Given that there’s more people in Kelowna’s Orchard Park Mall on a daily basis than live in Falkland, will some distant, far-off MP actually give residents the time they deserve or will they only be seen when there is campaigning to be done? The bottom line is that breaking with electoral tradition is misguided. Falkland is tied in with the ColumbiaShuswap Regional District and its teenagers go to high school in Armstrong. Vernon is a source of jobs, shopping, banking and doctors. In fact, when overcrowding at Vernon Jubilee Hospital was dominating headlines, some of the most vocal critics of the provincial government came from the town known for its stampede. Talbot has vowed to take the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission head on, and it’s likely other Falkland residents will join the fight. But the battle would gain far more traction if the community’s man in Ottawa was firmly at their side. After six years, no one should be able to provide a stronger argument for Falkland remaining in Okanagan-Shuswap than Mayes. But if he isn’t willing to make some noise and support those who have supported him, then it’s time to raise a giant white flag on Gyp Mountain.

Maybe it’s because he also instructs boating safety that you can sense the frustration from Vernon RCMP Cpl. Gerry Kovacs when he said, with no pun intended, the message about being safe on the water is not sinking in. Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP have been conducting daily patrols over the last two weeks on Okanagan, Kalamalka, Mara and Mabel lakes. This past weekend, six boats were taken off the water because they weren’t safe. Charges were laid for not having the vessel licence on the back of the boat, not having an operator competency card on board and not having a spotter when towing someone behind the vessel. There were also charges – and this is where Kovacs’ frustration rises – for not having a sufficient supply of life jackets on board for each person. And it’s not just on boats where life jackets, or a lack of them, are an issue. Police rescued two stand-up paddle boarders who got blown out towards the middle of the lakes. Neither had a life jacket and one was so exhausted they were literally clinging to the board, hoping to be picked up by a boater. One 14-year-old boy was also rescued by police after his inflatable dinghy got blown off-course by the wind. He too did not have a life jacket on or with him in the dinghy. While boating law in Canada states that there must be approved life jackets aboard the vessel for every person on board, it’s simply not enough to have them stored someplace on the boat. “It’s an offence to be on the water without life jackets aboard,” said Kovacs. “And wearing a life jacket is the absolute insurance against drowning.” RCMP are reiterating their message to all boaters: go out and enjoy the lakes, but make safety a No. 1 priority.

Driver's licence system questioned

H

ow many seniors have had this experience? I don't have a computer, and as a matter of fact, I don't ever want one. But because of my age and doctor's medical information, I had to go to Kelowna General Hospital for a computer drivable test. Sure, I failed, lost my driver's license and now I have to do a driver's test. An actual driver's test is what I wanted and asked for but I was told I had to do the driver-in-office evaluation on a computer first. I have been driving since I was 17 and I have never had an accident, not even a speeding ticket and no ICBC claim. I wear glasses but other than that, I am doing very well for my age. Larry Drescher PESTICIDE USE Re: B.C. committee rejects pesticide ban, Morning Star Daily, May 18. The B.C. special committee on cosmetic pesticide use should be commended for examining the issue of urban pesticide use so thoroughly. The committee received 8,675 submissions and held 22 meetings where presentations were made by dozens of witnesses, including experts from Health Canada, environmental groups, industry organizations, scientific organizations and academics. In the end, the committee made 17 recommendations but came to the conclusion that scientific evidence does not warrant preventing British Columbians from buying and using approved pesticides so pesticides should not be banned in B.C. The committee did its due diligence on this topic and discovered that pesticides in Canada are regulated by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency which employs over 350 scientists who are experts in their field. The review process involves a comprehensive

set of 200 tests and a review of all scientifically credible studies that exist to ensure the product will not cause harm to people, animals or the environment. If the report from the committee had been different and they had instead recommended a ban, the groups that are unhappy with the actual outcome would be commending the government on a thorough process that looked at all available science before making the decision they did. It's ironic that these same groups only like the "growing and suggestive body of evidence" when it yields the answer they want. Fortunately for Canadians, science doesn't work that way. The B.C. special committee on cosmetic pesticide use did look at all available science and made the right decision to continue to ensure British Columbians have access to useful tools to protect private and public properties from pests. Lorne Hepworth, CropLife Canada president SOMETHING FISHY The problem of fish viruses has not gone away and it

will continue as long as government breaks its own laws and legislation by allowing big business to lobby ministers with the promise of dollars and jobs to introduce non-native species of fish into our waters. In the end, it will cost us the taxpayers millions of dollars for cleaning up the disasters that we are yet to experience. Don't believe us poor uninformed taxpayers? Open your eyes and don't rely on your hired help. Just take 30 minutes out of your life and look at the abundant evidence that is posted on many websites about Norway, Peru, Scotland and their experience with fish farms. These are the same companies that are operating here in B.C. waters. There is one site that has been around for years and yet you have done nothing but pass the buck. As our elected representatives you should be on this travesty constantly. Why is it that it only took one sick cow with "mad cow disease" to immediately shut down the entire beef export industry within hours of discovery.

It has been years since the discovery of viruses that have attacked the foreign fishes being raised in open net fish farms right on the migration route of our wild salmon. This is insanity. In closing, your farmed salmon is waiting for you at the grocery store. Are you going to buy one and support your Norwegian and Canadian business friends, or do you prefer only buy fresh wild B.C. salmon that is being forced to swim by these farms and in the process get exposed to the same viruses that are present there? Jim Mellors WAIT TIMES On July 1, Norm Schulz stated that in March the wait time for his hernia operation was eight months. I have to inform him that I was told last September that mine would be in the new year. I am still waiting. John Taylor SMART METERS What ever happened to government of the people, by the people, for the people?

Citizens in large numbers have objected to the smart meter roll-out. They have signed petitions, sent letters and posted no trespassing signs by their analog meters. The B.C. Utilities Commission has given B.C. Hydro the authority to access any land in order to perform functions related to its meters. B.C. Hydro says the smart meters are mandatory. Never mind the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees us the right to life, liberty and security. Never mind that the Human Rights Code protects people from being harassed or discriminated against. The B.C. government has spent $1 billion of our money without asking our opinion. We need a proper public review of this program. Citizens for Safe Technology is fighting to give British Columbians a choice. Actively communicate your refusal. Once your smart meter is installed, it will be difficult to have it removed. Say no and stand your

ground until the government can prove 100 per cent safety and security. Marie Siegmund

Lumby ponders tax exemptions RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

see what people want done.” Staff has reviewed how other municipalities handle tax exemptions to spur development, but Acton says that may be irrelevant to Lumby’s needs. “We have looked at other communities that have done it but I don’t see anything working really well for anyone,” he said. It’s expected village staff will bring more information before council Aug. 13.

alert ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Ve r n o n - N o r t h Okanagan RCMP are asking residents to think Christmas. Not to cool down from the summer heat, but because of a significant spike in the number of thefts from vehicles and garages. “Think like the Christmas campaign, lock up your valuables and get them out of sight,” said Cpl. Gerry Kovacs, with the detachment. “Don’t leave stuff in your car, and take time each night to make sure the windows in your vehicles are rolled up and garage doors are locked.” Kovacs said during the hot, summer weather, it’s normal for people to leave the windows down in their vehicles, and go in and out of garages. Such maneuvers tend to make people less aware of security. And with windows down and doors unlocked, it’s easy pickings for a would-be thief. “That combination creates an environment of being very target-rich for our criminals that engage in this behaviour,” said Kovacs. “It’s easy to go through a neighbourhood and sift through a bunch of unlocked cars and open windows. They can go into a neighbourhood, go through a hundred cars and take anything of value. “There’s no fuss, no mess, they’re not breaking anything, just sifting through the easy stuff.” Kovacs said there is no one particular area in the North Okanagan that is being targeted by crooks. “It’s all over,” he said. “It’s in every neighbourhood.”

The mystery of the three masks KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Look up, way up, and you would have spotted their gargoyled faces peeking out amongst the cottonwood branches. As mysterious as a UFO sighting at Area 51, the three bronze masks created by celebrated Coldstream artist Bob Kingsmill have been the thing of legend since they were erected just after the Vernon Performing Arts Centre opened its doors in October, 2001. Many didn’t know the masks even existed. “They were put way up in the trees and people weren’t able to find them,” said Kingsmill. That has all changed as two of the masks have recently been moved to a more visible location. They now adorn the west side of the building, near the entrance to the Marie Fleming Hall. How they got to their new home is a story in itself, one that Kingsmill, his wife MaryAnn, and Performing Arts Centre executive director Pamela Burns Resch recently shared with The Morning Star. “It’s quite serendipitous how they appeared on the building,” said Burns Resch. It all started when Michael Cade, the centre’s original executive director, wanted to incorporate public art into Vernon’s newest arts space. And that meant for art not only to be inside the building, but outside of it as well, as can be seen with Doug Alcock’s metal sculpture, The Real Glitz, and Caroline Ramersdorfer’s marble centerpiece, Energy V, which both sit at the front entrance to the Performing Arts Centre. “Michael wanted the art to become everyone’s work, so he came up with a plan to have Bob’s masks become part of a green art corridor that would line the creek starting at the north end of town and going past the Performing Arts Centre and the recreation complex into downtown,” said MaryAnn. Those plans saw Kingsmill’s masks placed in a way where two of them would face a corner of the Performing Arts Centre, where one served as an anchor on the building. The anchored mask sat at a vantage point clearly visible to the naked eye, however, the other two were “lost” when they were each placed in a cottonwood tree alongside the creek. “The problem is that as the trees grew,

the masks moved up and also got lost in the foliage,” said Burns Resch. “I blame (Cade),” joked Kingsmill. “He had a concern for public art and wanted to make this place successful. He had a grander vision and wanted to go in every conceivable direction.” And that was only the beginning of the mystery of the masks. In the spring of 2011, one of the cottonwoods toppled from a storm, and the mask and the tree ended up in the creek. Jurisdiction was cloudy over who could retrieve the mask (streams, creeks and lakes usually fall under the federal fisheries/environment ministry), but it was eventually “rescued,” said Burns Resch. “From my perspective, certain mysterious forces retrieved the mask without denying any fisheries complexities,” added Kingsmill. “No toxic elements went into the creek by any mysterious sources.” And even though many didn’t know the masks were up in the trees in the first place, the centre did receive one phone call from a concerned citizen upset that the masks had been removed. “At least somebody noticed them when they were gone,” said Burns Resch. That citizen will be relieved to know the masks are now back as staff with the Regional District of the North Okanagan recently erected them at their current location on the building. For his part, Kingsmill says he is pleased his work is now in a position where they can be seen by all who walk by. “I’m glad to think of the patina that is developing on them,” he said, referring to the darkened gleam on the pieces. “They’ll be happy where they are now and now can be more of a part of the public art emphasis on the city.”

Festival hits high note with families Grassroots arts and ‘musik’ festival continues to grow in Grindrod

Families are now welcome in the pub area!! enu M t s a f k a e r B New ct s Benedi

Morning Star Staff

With classic rock and heavy metal taking up the stages in Armstrong-Spallumcheen this weekend, and the Komasket Music Festival sidelined until next year, festival seekers looking for a family friendly event need not look further than Grindrod. The third annual Grindrod Musik and Arts Festival takes place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the Grindrod Recreation Park. With the festival’s admission being a suggested minimum donation of $5 per person, festival dwellers will have access to as many as 10 musical acts on the main stage, an open mic on the side stage, an art wall, where visitors can contribute their creative talent, an art show, kids’ activities, miscellaneous food and goods vendors, a drum circle, and more. “One of the things that sets us apart from other festivals is that we celebrate and promote only local talent from our own backyards,” said Rory White, who for the past two years has organized the open mic portion of the festival and this year has stepped in as overall organizer. “This year we have some great names from the Okanagan, Shuswap and Thompson-Similkameen regions.” The Grindrod Musik and Arts Festival was started three years ago by Phil Wesle, of the band Clayvious, who wanted to have a Woodstock-type of gathering on his family’s farm. “With his mom Gabriele’s encouragement, they investigated the idea of having it at the park in Grindrod instead, which was looking for more groups to use the park and thus the festival was born,” said White. Festival attendance has steadily increased since then. “We had around 800 last year and expect around 1,000 or so for the day this year,” added White. Musical guests this year include Silver Creek folk duo Blu and Kelly Hopkins, Vernon’s acoustic trio Steel Wound, Kamloops’ blues band Sabrina Weeks & Swing Cat Bounce, Vernon’s CelticMaritimers Cod Gone Wild, as well as Salmon Arm singer Aimee Laws.

There is, however, the Riverfront Pub right across from the park for the adults who wish to have such beverages there,” said White.

There’s more to hear and see as downtown Vernon continues to come alive with live music and art on Friday nights. Sights and Sounds of Downtown, which started July 6, has so far featured a number of buskers playing live on the sidewalks of 30th Avenue, while visual artists have been selling and creating their wares. Some businesses have also remained open for evening shopping. “We are very pleased with the first two nights of Sights and Sounds Downtown,” said Holly Schmidt, events and marketing manager for the Downtown Vernon Association. “It’s been fantastic to walk the streets of downtown and see so many people stopping and listening to the many performers we have from 29th Street to 25th Street. It’s also nice to see them have the opportunity to pop in and out of the many unique businesses we have downtown while they’re down enjoying the sounds.” This Friday, the DVA has lined up a number of entertainers who will perform on selected blocks along 30th Avenue. On the 2900-block is local trio Sorella, who perform their contemporary music in three-part harmony. Next door on the 3000 block will be local singer-guitarist Jake Hubner, who plays a variety of styles including folk, rocklike pieces and lots of original tunes. Vocalist Paul Rossetti will be on the 3100 block to perform folk, blues, classic rock and gospel, while guitarist/ singer David L’Hirondelle will perform pop and rock featuring his original works mixed with recognizable cover tunes from the past on the 3200 block. Further up the sidewalk on the 3300 block is The Desert Rose Duo, who perform a blend of folk, bluegrass and old-time music. Kelowna folk artist and songwriter Jane Eamon, who will be on the 3400 block, is a five-time B.C. Interior Music Award winner who loves to tell stories about life and everything in between. Visual artists will include Christine Kashuba, on the 2900 block, who will be showcasing an introduction to the world of printmaking. The demo will introduce participants to a variety of methods used to produce original

Kylee Apers likes to keep active and learning, from working on the family ranch, to earning her degree in dental hygiene from UBC with high marks, to modeling. She was encouraged to try the Miss Universe Canada pageant when she was modeling for Allan International Models in Kelowna. The pageant, which selects Canada’s representative to the Miss Universe pageant, has representatives from across the country. “I would never have thought of doing a pageant, but it was a challenge and I like doing new things,” said Apers, 24, a 2006 A.L. Fortune graduate who works at Armstrong Dental Centre. That was last November and she went to Vancouver once a month to train for the pageant, proud to be the only one from the interior of the province. The pageant took place in Toronto for nine days starting May 17 and included rehearsals, public appearances, a visit to a school and interviews. The 62 contestants supplied their own clothes for the evening gown and swimsuit parts of the event. “There were so many shoes at that hotel,” Apers laughed. “We got to know each other and everyone was very encouraging to each other. I found the other girls inspirational, many have their own businesses or are in school, and do volunteer work in their communities. There was a four-way tie for Miss Congeniality, which tells you the calibre of the women there.” She admits to being nervous before the interviews, which took the form of three minutes with each of the 16 judges. The questions ranged from the serious, about current events, to the whimsical, about which cartoon character a contestant would want to be. Apers liked the question about which famous woman in history she would be. “I said Cleopatra, because she was a strong, independent woman,” she said. The event includes doing some work for the Miss Universe Canada charity, SOS Children’s Villages, which works in 130 countries. Apers organized a fundraiser in Armstrong, guessing the number of chocolate kisses in a jar, which raised $986 for the charity. “I felt well prepared for the pageant. Some of the contestants were in the pageant for the second or third time. The winner, Sahar Biniaz, was in it for the third time. She will go on to the Miss Universe Pageant in December,” said Apers. “It was very exciting to hear my name called and come down and

It was really special to me.” Apers is getting settled back at work and enjoying the Okanagan summer, which will include visits with her new friends, the contestants she got to know in Vancouver. “I feel inspired by the whole event. It has made me set new goals and I want to

keep growing and expanding. When you start working towards something, you never know what doors will open for you. I was very shy in school gut I have been working on that. When you want to work towards something, you should always try and see what happens,” she said. “I want to thank my family and friends and sponsors and the community, everyone who supported me in so many ways.”

n the hot days of summer it’s nice to turn to salads for a light meal or for the main entree to a family sup-

per. Finding light, no cook recipes that satisfy the palate and offer a delicious fresh taste is always a bonus. Adding a little meat or protein to any salad makes for a complete meal. Use up leftover barbecued chicken or steak in a salad. Any kind of lunch meat is good as well: smoked turkey, ham, tuna, Cathi Litzenberger salami, corned beef, or prosciutto, they’re all great on salads. Today’s pasta dish satisfies all criteria; it’s fresh and tasty. The second salad is a Thai salad where a spicy and sour lime dressing complements cool cucumbers and Boston lettuce. It’s a real nice change.

KITCHEN WIT & WISDOM

1-1/2 tbsp. Thai fish sauce 1-1/2 tbsp. sugar 1-1/2 tbsp. minced seeded jalapeño chili (about 1 large) 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 tsp. salt 2 tbsp. chopped fresh mint Salad 1-1/2 English cucumbers, halved, seeded, thinly sliced 1 carrot, grated 3/4 cup sliced red onion 1 head Boston lettuce, washed and torn 3 tbsp. chopped fresh mint Salt and pepper to taste 3 tbsp. coarsely chopped lightly salted roasted peanuts (for garnish) Instructions: Step 1: Whisk dressing ingredients together in a medium bowl. Step 2: Place cucumbers, carrot, onion, lettuce and mint in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss to coat. Season salad to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with peanuts and serve.

No-Cook Fresh Tomato Sauce with Pasta 1 lb. (450 g) whole grain spaghetti, uncooked 8 plum tomatoes (2 lb./900 g), chopped 1/2 cup Kraft Calorie-Wise Zesty Italian Dressing 1/4 cup Kraft 100% Parmesan Light Grated Cheese 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil 2 tbsp. chopped red onions Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients in large bowl. Drain pasta. Add to tomato mixture; toss to coat. How to serve as a cold pasta dish: Prepare as directed. Add cut up cold Italian sausage to add if desired and refrigerate up to 24 hours before serving. Serve with a fresh spinach salad tossed with your favourite calorie-wise dressing. Thai Cucumber Salad Dressing: 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

Short and sweet wildflower tour offered at Silver Star Morning Star Staff

There’s a new guided walk up at Silver Star Mountain Resort this summer. The Short and Sweet Mountain Wildflower Tour runs every Monday to Thursday afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m. “People have been asking for a shorter wildflower tour to fit their busy schedules and to accommodate all ages and abilities,” explains Silver Star’s accomplished naturalist guide, Roseanne Van Ee of Outdoor Discoveries. “Groups have booked this as a private tour in past summers, but now everyone can join us on the prescheduled activity.” Van Ee believes this may be the perfect summer to introduce

Naturalist RoseanneVan Ee leads the Short and Sweet Mountain Wildflower Tour at Silver Star Mountain Resort this summer. the tour. “All the spring and summer rain has drenched the soil and now the sun is warming the mountain slopes. We’re seeing lush growth and I’m predicting an amazing

wildflower show from mid-July through the summer.” The Short and Sweet Mountain Wildflower Tour departs from Silver Star’s gold rush era styled village along trails through open wildflower meadows and forested slopes to spectacular views of the Monashee Mountains. Participants will hear stories about the mountain’s wildflowers, wildlife, history and more. This new excursion complements the Bears and Berries tour and The Grand Mountain Wildflower Tour, where participants are whisked up to the mountain top on the village chairlift. During the Bears and Berries tour, Thursday through Saturday mornings, groups hike

along mountain trails discovering amazing facts about black bears and their habitats on a fun and adventurous hike along mountain trails, said Van Ee, adding visitors can even try some of bears favourite foods. The full afternoon Grand Mountain Wildflower Tour runs on Fridays and Saturdays from 1 to 5 p.m. Each tour winds up with a lemonade and cookie picnic. Van Ee also adds tips and hints to improve digital photos. “I’ve always been a photo buff and enjoy helping others get the most from their cameras,” she said. “Tour participants are really happy to learn

a few tricks that create way better photos to impress their family and friends.” Those wishing to leave the valley heat for a refreshing mountain stroll can book a tour at www.

Brandt rolls out dream machine ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

T

he dream for Steve Brandt began at 16. That’s when the owner of Vernon-based Brandt Motorsports bought the 1952 Ford pro street pickup truck from his sister in Saskatchewan, with the vision of restoring the vehicle to its former glory, doing everything completely from scratch. Nearly 30 years later, Brandt is getting closer. He worked aroundthe-clock with help

from good friend Jason De Leeuw to get the truck in presentation shape for the second annual Vancouver Men’s Show in Abbotsford in June. “I didn’t do too much right away because I didn’t have the money,” said Brandt, who turned 45 during the Men’s Show. “I started doing body work on the thing 22 years ago, but then business and life gets in the way. It’s been 22 years since I got serious about it.” Single and never

married, and with no kids, Brandt enlisted the help of De Leeuw a couple of years ago to help restore the truck. Not that Brandt hadn’t tried before. “The truck has been driven for, maybe, a month since I picked it up,” he said. “Since then it’s had four different frames, five different motor combinations. I had it completely painted with a flame job, I didn’t like it and I threw it all away. I hated the cab so I found another one and just started hacking.”

ROGER KNOX/MORNING STAR

Steve Brandt (left), owner of Brandt Motorsports, and Jason De Leeuw have been busy building and re-building a 1952 Ford pro street pickup completely from scratch. He does all of this without any designs on paper, only what he sees in his head, and he has to use two subjects he hated in school. “I’m brutal for dimensions,” confessed Brandt. “Math, I never did well in school, now I use math everyday. Same with physics. A lot of stuff I do involves physics.” He took the current cab and cut it in four which is when Brandt said he “lost my mind.” He took nearly six inches off the truck, took the rear window down, put in suicide doors and so on. “There’s not one piece on here that hasn’t been shortened or something,” said Brandt, who operates by the motto, ‘Why be normal because nor-

mal sucks?’ The truck was on display for three days at the Men’s Show, and Brandt and De Leeuw had lots of people look at it – some people, despite signs saying otherwise, decided to get in the cab, much to Brandt’s chagrin. He had offers on the truck, but he said there’s too much sentimental value attached. Besides, he plans on driving it around town. “The truck will have 1,200 horsepower and will be street-driven,” said Brandt, who has taken the truck apart – again – to begin wiring it. “It has everything it needs to be legal, proper brakes, tires, seatbelts, working signals.” And, like everything he does, it will be cus-

four that he was either going to be a farmer or a mechanic because he was continuously dirty. The kicker is, nobody in the family – not his mom, his dad, a retired preacher, nor his six brothers and sisters – is mechanically inclined. “My parents had nothing to do with cars at all so where I get it from, I can’t tell you,” said Brandt, who said he works a minimum 14 hours a day on his projects. Brandt is planning on changing the name of his company to Quick Ride Engineering, and his 1952 Ford pro street will be on display at the Sturgis North festival from today until Sunday at the MotoPlex Speedway in Spallumcheen.

tom made. Brandt built his first go-kart at 13 – from the ground up, of course – and, from there, “gone stupid.” He builds hot rods, mud cars, race cars, off-road trucks and motorcycles. But his biggest sellers are snowmobiles. “They’re a big part of my life,” said Brandt, whose website is www.ratsled.com. “I sell stuff to Norway, Sweden, lots of stuff to Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec, Manitoba, Alaska, and other places in the U.S. like Maine, all the way to Washington and Oregon.” Growing up on a Saskatchewan farm, Brandt’s mom said she knew when her son – one of seven Brandt children – was three or

Tigers power past Venom in OT Morning Star Staff

Ryan Landels and Nolan Frame each collected a pair of overtime goals as the Vernon Re/Max Tigers outgunned the host Kamloops Venom 16-13 in Game 1 of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League finals Monday night at Memorial Arena. The Tigers looked to have walked away with the win in regulation, but the Venom were awarded a penalty shot at the buzzer when a referee called Vernon netminder Tyler Landry for pushing his net off its moorings. Quinn Smith converted to draw even at 12-12 and force extra time. “It was unfortunate there was a penalty shot called after the final buzzer, however it was very gratifying as a coach to see our captains and veterans step up and realize the significance in re-grouping the team immediately,” said Tigers’ head coach Myles Brumpton. “That veteran rally showed poise and maturity in our leaders.” The Tigers will host Kamloops for Game 2 of the best-offive championship series tonight (7:30) at Wesbild Centre. Game 3 is slated for Monday in Kamloops. Landels was a force early, pocketing four first-period goals to go along with a 7+5 performance. Mike Quarin, who was double-teamed pretty much every time he touched the ball, had Vernon’s other goal in the opening period. Ben Saklofsky, Ty Hamer-Jackson and Jake Latin answered for Kamloops. The Cats, who finished the regular season at 8-6-2, built a 9-6 lead after 40 minutes on singles by Landels, Craig Bigsby, Frame and Ryan Oliverius. Smith and Brady Jorgensen replied for Kamloops, who took the regular-season pennant at 14-1-1 (their only loss was to Vernon). Raiders’ captain Riley Donahue was ejected in the second period for crosschecking Jake Soleway near the players’ bench. The Venom cranked up their offence in the final frame, getting goals from Latin (2), Smith, Jerome Thorne, Jorgenson and Colton Defrias. Darryl Landels, Ryan Sarazin and Frame countered for the Tigers, who took just eight total penalty minutes, including a coincidental roughing minor. “Overall the boys played a very disciplined, selfless and

Mike

Frolek had 37 stops and a helper for the hosts. Landry will miss Game 2 as he and fellow Midget call-up Liam Drabiuk are playing with Thompson Okanagan Zone 2 at the B.C. Summer Games this week. The Tigers will start Josh Point tonight.

Penalty woes cost Shamrocks in Shaw Cup opener Morning Star Staff

The Armstrong Shamrocks knew team discipline would play a big part in the outcome of the Shaw Cup Senior C lacrosse championships. Their lack of it cost them Game 1 of the best-of-three set as they fell 13-10 to the host Kelowna Raiders Monday night at Memorial Arena. Game 2 goes tonight (7:30) at the Nor-Val Sports Centre. If necessary, Game 3 will go Friday night, same time, in Kelowna. Playing in Bikram yoga-like conditions Monday night, the Shamrocks, who accumulated 77 penalty minutes, got going early when Jarrett Medhurst buried the first of

four goals. The Raiders took the lead on powerplay goals by Jake Illichman and Jordan Innes, and another on a delayed penalty call by Luke Bailey. “We made a few mistakes turning the ball over at bad times that led to goals, and we took way too many penalties,” said Armstrong coach Glenn (Stumpy) Mitchell. “The conditions were fairly brutal tonight in the Kelowna Arena. But aside from a few mistakes on our part, we won the 5-on-5 play tonight and the guys fought hard until the final horn.” Singles by Armstrong’s Steve Clark, Medhurt and Milan Marcetta, and Kelowna’s Pho Heng had it tied at the break.

The lead changed hands several times in the second frame, with Kriss Yargeau, Thomas Belenger, Medhurst and Marcetta sparking the Shamrock attack. Bailey (2), Innes and Brian Jette handled Kelowna’s offence. In the opening minute of the final period, Armstrong’s Devin Rodger earned a major and gross misconduct for a high hit on Kelowna’s Chris Phillips. On the ensuing powerplay, the Raiders clicked twice more on the man advantage. The two teams then traded goals, with Marcetta and Medhurst capitalizing for the Shamrocks. Down by a pair with four minutes to play, Armstrong was unable to convert on a on a 5-on-3 powerplay. The Raiders iced the game with an empty-netter in the final minute.

Kennington rules Dub 300 GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

DJ Kennington of St. Thomas, Ont. is a bridesmaid no longer at the A&W Crusin’ the Dub 300. After posting back-to-back runnerup finishes behind defending champion Scott Steckly of Milverton, Ont., Kennington finally took the checkered flag at the NASCAR Canadian Tire series event Saturday at MotoPlex Speedway and Event Park. The Dub 300 thoroughly entertained the estimated 6,000 race fans, with more leader changes than the Arab Spring to go along with seven restarts. Kennington, who was near the front most of the night, slipped down the leaderboard when he snuck into the pits to change tires after Jarrad Whissel raised a caution for spinning out in his No. 44 SMS Equipment/ Komatsu Ford on Lap 190. Kennington methodically worked his way through the pack, overtaking fifth place by Lap 217, and third by 226. Jason Hathaway of Appin, Ont., who claimed second in his No. 3 Snapon Tools/Rockstar Dodge, gave him a three-lap battle before relinquishing second place, and Kennington, piloting his No. 17 Castrol Edge/Mahindra Tractors Dodge, overtook Steckly on Lap 249 and cruised to the win. “It’s tough to pass here... and this track’s hard on tires,” said Kennington, of the banked, half-mile tri-oval. “The guys made a good call to get our left sides when we did. We figured it would be a long green run there at the end and we had to have tires or we weren’t going to be able to do anything.” The win was Kennington’s third consecutive this season, giving him 227 points for a 23-point lead over

Cambridge, Ont.’s JR Fitzpatrick (204) in the series standings. Roxton Pond, Que.’s Andrew Ranger is third with 200. Steckly (No. 22 Canadian Tire/ Motomaster Dodge), Fitzpatrick (No. 84 Equipment Express Chevrolet) and Sun Peaks’ Jason White (No. 21 A&W/Bower Wilkins Dodge), picking up his career-best finish, rounded out the top five. White was understandably thrilled with the result. “I needed this run here really bad,” said White, whose brother, Jim, finished an impressive seventh. “I’ve had some bad luck (on this track). I’m just on cloud nine, that’s for sure. “I got a great team; DJ Kennington Racing has put an awesome car underneath me and it’s just allowing me to be able to drive, and tonight was the drive of my life. “I tried to be patient and save my tires. The caution flags fell, when they did, to our advantage and bunched us back up again. In this series, the frontrunners go hard and they put you down a lap early.” White finished the race, which lasted just over two hours, without his hood. His crew had to remove it after he bumped into Trevor Siebert’s No. 69 Lake Excavating Dodge (Williams Lake). “It doesn’t matter what it looks like; as long as you finish in the top five, that’s what counts,” smiled White, who credited Penticton’s Sarah Cornett-Ching for working as his spotter. The A&W Cruisin’ The Dub 300 will be telecast by TSN on Sunday, 2 p.m. PT. The next race on the Canadian Tire series is the Edmonton 100 on Sunday.

Vernon United duo up for Games KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

They’ve been running a zillion miles an hour and scoring stacks of goals since Li’l Kickers. Over the years, they’ve added a great first touch and intelligent playmaking. Today, as 12-year-olds, Owen Miller and Ben Purvis are ready for their biggest soccer stage yet with Team Thompson-Okanagan (Zone 2) in the B.C. Summer Games, July 19-22, in Surrey. The Vernon United U12 Development Rep players made the grade following a pair of tryout scrimmages in Vernon. Miller, a towering midfielder/striker, even played out of his comfort zone. “I think I did a lot better the second game,” laughed Miller, a natural-born leader. “I played in goal in the first game and let one goal in.” Purvis, a roadrunner who also usually patrols the midfield or forward, managed to find the net in the trials. “I scored a really good goal from the last third of the field,” said Purvis. “I hit it right under the crossbar in the middle and surprised myself. It was in the last minute and it was 1-0 winner.” Head coach of Team ThompsonOkanagan is Alan Scholes of Kelowna. He coached Kelowna United so got some peaks at Miller and Purvis during the U12 season when they were coached by Roy Cooper and Kevin Mitchell. “Ben and Owen are skilled players

and from what I’ve seen over the past season, they both can move the ball well and can strike the ball very well,” said Scholes. “They were both picked because of their ability to move the ball and the hard work they put in during tryouts. They will be a good addition to the team and will help give the Thompson Okanagan Summer Games team a great opportunity to win gold.” Miller, who will enter Grade 7 at Coldstream Elementary this fall, is a huge fan of Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, and Barcelona because of the way they pass and hold the ball. “When they do give it up, they force the other team hard and get it back in a hurry. Ronaldo is a really fast runner. I like his quickness and his dribbling.” He says the Zone 2 team has Barcelona-like traits and they go hard in training. “The practices are really hard. We did 50 burpees today because we didn’t make enough passes in a drill.” Miller, who hopes to secure a U.S. university scholarship and play in a pro league one day, lists his parents – Brian and Tracy – as his heroes. “They coached me one year and they’ve always supported me. Whenever my mom and I are driving home from games, she tells me what she thought I did right and what I could have done better. They never miss a game. Sometimes they have to alternate between my games and my sister’s (Hannah) games.” Owen and Hannah, who enjoy

downhill skiing with their family, practise their shots on a six-by 12-foot net in their backyard. “We play every day,” said Owen. “I help my sister out, showing her how to kick. We make little movies of our best shots.” Purvis remembers being quite an emotional player as a tyke, where he was coached for two years by his father, Stephen. “I cried whenever the other team scored a goal,” chuckled Purvis, who attends Vernon Christian School with longtime youth soccer teammates Joe Eggert and Dylan Huber. “I liked all the cool goals on TV and I wanted to score those goals. My dad’s from Newcastle (England) so we’ve been to three or four games. It’s loud and crazy and a lot of fun.” Purvis, who plays school hoops and volleyball, says the Summer Games squad is blessed with speed and hard, accurate shooting. His soccer idol is Lionel Messi of Barcelona, whose mixture of pace and trickery Purvis oftens imitates. “I wanna play college and play for the Whitecaps and then play for Canada and Barcelona,” said Purvis, who has two brothers also in soccer. He lists his late grandfather, Harvey Epp, of Vernon, as his hero. “He made me laugh when I was feeling down and he taught me how to kick a ball when I was really little.” The Zone 2 team played Prince George in an exhibition series last weekend in 100 Mile House.

members of the Vernon Silhouettes, along with Lumby’s Taylor Sexsmith, a member of the North Okanagan Synchro Stars, will join Kelowna’s Zoe Roberts and Hannah Ruste at the Games, which start Thursday. Synchro uses a combination of dance, gymnastics and swimming, all carried out with precision in the pool. “Routines are scored on technical merit and artistic impression, so any synchro swimmer has to be creative, yet technically strong,” said Silhouettes’ coach Katie Dick, who will also head the Zone 2 team. Competitors perform entirely under their own power, using their feet doing eggbeater, or their hands for sculling. Even when they are upside down in the water, they do not touch the bottom of the pool. Some swimmers can be upside down holding their breathing upwards of a full minute. Kerr, Barker, Palfreyman and Sexsmith all started synchro together four years ago, and Dick has been impressed with their development. “The girls have improved so

much in the past year alone,” she said. “They are no longer doing the basic skills you learn in the recreation program offered at the Vernon Recreation Centre. The girls just keep trying and learning new, harder things and are good at it.” The synchro sixpack qualified for Summer Games in December by performing the mandatory figures set out by Synchro B.C. at a meet at the Vernon Recreation Centre. “A couple of the figures, especially Kip, were slightly beyond the girls’ abilities; however, their figures are looking stronger, higher out of the water

and more controlled because of all their hard work and long hours in the pool,” said Dick. “These six girls have only been swimming together for the past four weeks, and have created a fantastic routine that includes technically difficult skills that include boosts, lifts and complex hybrid figures.” The girls have been working diligently over the last six weeks to perfect their routine, whose theme is school’s out. They train six days a week. In addition to the team competition, Kerr will perform a solo, and Barker and Palfreyman a duo.

Celtic stop Brewers Morning Star Staff

Roadrunner Jesse Knight scored twice as the Vernon Celtic toppled Tree Brewing FC of Kelowna 7-4 in Okanagan Men’s 35+ Soccer League play Monday night at Mission 74 Park. Tree Brewing (1-9-2) were clearly in no mood to be dispatched and came out aggressive and counterpunching, opening the score after five minutes in the soaring heat. Ten minutes later, Knight took a feed from Bryan Schenker to level the game. Tree Brewing responded right away on a well executed breakaway. Rodney Goodchild converted a cross from Volker Otto to even things again at halftime. After the break, the 7-3-2 Celtic, who where cheered on by a dozen traveling fans, upped the tempo and took the lead twice with goals from utility midfielders Ryan Leibel and Nolan Clarke. Tree Brewing responded both times, but after the fifth Celtic goal, scored by Knight, the resistance of the Brewers was finally broken. The Celtic calmly played the ball around and Dave Dobernigg and Schenker rounded out the attack after some skillful give-and-goes. Vernon Kal Tire fell 10-3 to Sturgeon Hall at Marshall Field #2 in other 35+ action.

Horsting jumpstarts Turn-Key Controls Turn-Key Controls ambushed Monashee Surveying 6-0 in a make-up North Okanagan Soccer League game Sunday night at Marshall Field. The determined Turn-Key squad opened the scoring early in the first half when Nolan’s Pharmasave Man of the Match Taylor Horsting converted a penalty kick past keeper Pete Solymosi. Shortly after, Preston Tucker found Horsting behind the (5-4-3) Monashee defence for the 2-0 goal. Marco Arnold put Turn-Key ahead 3-0 before the half on a cheeky 20-yard free kick. Tucker converted a goal-mouth scramble for the fourth snipe, while Evan Moore, who was all over the place at centre midfielder, played a great ball to striker Andrew Pool, who placed a through ball to fellow striker Chris Jahnig, who put a well-placed smash past Solymosi. Solymosi registered a few more big saves before Greg Niemantsverdriet put home a tic-tac-toe goal off a pass from Jahnig. Jeremy Kler earned the well-supported clean sheet in net.

Czerwonka sizzles for Big O Tire In Capri Insurance 45+ Men’s League action, Henry Czerwonka was the Rogers Sugar Man of the Match as Big O Tire/Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos clipped host Lake Country 2-1 under the lights at Beasley Park. Czerwonka, an unsung hero, came out of nowhere and started the 7-6 Ogopogos off with a brilliant rush towards the net, and a surprising back pass to defender Rob Ross, who buried a low outside kick into the corner. Both keepers recorded great saves throughout, and the rushing 5-6-2 Lake Country forwards challenged the Ogopogos all game. Lake Country later equalized on some nice moves, but Big O Tire made a push upfield and the ball went to Czerwonka, who showed some fancy footwork around a couple of defenders and from outside the 18, blasted a high shot for the winner.

Dave Gould of Lake Country put a long drive just over the Ogopogo net and keeper Yogi Kongsdorf ’s outstreched arms in the dying seconds. Centre defender Leo Nadeau and Ross rated honourable mentions for Big O. Some crafty veterans helped the Silver Stars ground Bosman Accounting 4-1 at Marshall Field #5. Added up, their age almost totals 180 years, but they can still get it done. The Stars were led by founding members Ken Rath, Mahmoud Abdel-Kader and Tim Penaluna, who combined to score the allimportant final insurance goal. Penaluna challenged a Bosman forward in the Stars end, stole the ball and slid a nice pass up to Abdel-Kader who then spotted a streaking Rath. Rath faked the first shot to freeze the defender and then made no mistake on his second attempt chipping the ball under the cross bar. Rath was quoted as saying, “I meant to do that.” The Stars opened the scoring when Art Renaud picked up a loose ball 20 yards out and deflected his shot in off of a Bosman defender. Just 10 minutes later, Rob Bauml scored on a rocket, roof daddy, from the corner of the 18 when the Stars were awarded a free kick. Bosman generated some good offence to begin the second half hitting several posts, but were unable to beat keeper Ted ANDRE LODDER/MORNING STAR Lurkins. Finally, in the 55th minute, Mike Brian Eso of the Silver Stars protects the ball from Carl McLennan of Bosman Lloyd cleaned up a rebound off the post as Accounting in men’s 45+ league action Monday night at Marshall Field #5. a sprawling Stars defender was unable to clear the ball off the back line.

Gamache, who pocketed eight goals and 23 points in 27 games with Vernon after being obtained in a trade with the AJHL Okotoks Oilers, will play for Hobart College, a highly touted NCAA Division III program located in upstate New York. Gamache, who hails from Longlac, Ont., will become Statesman teammates with BCHL grad Lino Chimienti (goalie, Merritt Centennials). Halcrow, who was 24-26-1 with a 3.01 GAA last year in

Vernon, will play for Portage College Voyageurs in Lac La Biche, Alta. The Voyageurs are in the ACAC.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Although normally you’re pretty good about keeping your temper in check, if you’re not careful you could spontaneously overreact should your views or opinions be challenged. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Hanging around with friends who are notoriously extravagant or reckless with their funds opens up the possibility of you following their lead. Be your own person. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you’re at odds with your mate over something trivial, make sure you resolve it before going out with friends. You won’t want it to rear its ugly head when you’re trying to have a good time.

you are likely to intend. Thus, be sure that what you say enhances your image, not damages it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Being a bit of a risk taker, you could easily jump into something that is financially way over your head. Be particularly wary of anything that seems too good to be true. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Think twice before pulling the rug out from under a direct competitor. The consequences of your actions could take you down along with him or her. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Instead of vowing to eventually correct a mistake you made, take action the moment you realize your gaffe. The longer you wait, the worse it’ll get. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) There’s a chance you could get caught up in a situation in which the position you want to take opposes the will of the majority. Don’t try to fight city hall on your own.

Bridge by Phillip Alder DID PARTNER OVERBID OR DID YOU MISPLAY? Delia Smith, an English cook and TV personality, said, “A cake is a very good test of an oven. If it browns too much on one side and not on the other, it’s not your fault; you need to have your oven checked.” If you go down in a contract, it is surely because your partner overbid. If not that, then the distribution was so bad that you had no chance. But just maybe you misplayed. In this deal, South was in six spades. West led the diamond jack: queen, king, ace. Declarer ran the spade queen, but it lost to East’s king, and a diamond return defeated the contract.

Did North overbid, was South unlucky, or did he misplay? North was optimistic in looking for a slam. And, yes, South was unlucky that the lead was a diamond, the king was over the queen, and the spade finesse lost. However, he misplayed. Suppose the trump finesse had worked. What would South have done then? He would have drawn trumps and taken the club finesse. If it won, he would have collected an overtrick, but if it failed, he would have gone down one. The spade finesse was a black herring. South needed the club finesse, and if that was working, he could afford the loss of the trump finesse.

250.549.4121

After West did not cover the spade queen, South should have won with dummy’s ace and called for the club queen. East would probably have covered. South would have won and taken his other two club winners, discarding dummy’s diamond loser. Then he would have led a trump and claimed.

Dwaine’s spiritual values guided him from his youth and through his Įnal days with us. He trusted God for all his needs, lived in constant prayer, and kept his faith through many sorrows and diĸculƟes.

Q: A:

We have heard that the rules for financing a home have recently changed. It all seems very complicated and we just need to know how these changes will affect our situation. Can you help us to understand?

The recent changes made by the Government of Canada will make it a little tougher when buying a home, looking to refinance a home for renovations, or even to look at changing your mortgage at renewal. The Bank of Canada made changes to the length of time that you can repay a mortgage for anyone requiring one of the default mortgage insurers such as Canada Mortgage and Housing (CMHC), Genworth or Canada Guaranty. These clients will now be required to repay the mortgage in 25 years. For anyone that will have a 20% down payment (or equity in their home) the type of mortgage you will need is called “Conventional Mortgage Financing”, and your options are not limited by the new rules, you can still repay up to 35 years. The Government also made changes that will limit the amount of refinancing and for using a line of credit on your home. The good news is that we will have options for you to consider, as a Mortgage Broker, we work with a variety of Lenders and can find the best solution for your situation. One policy at a Bank Lender may not be the same as another Lender down the street. If you have a Lender saying they are unable to help you, your best option is to call a Mortgage Broker to ensure that the decision was made based upon the new Government changes and not based upon an individual policy change at your Bank Lender. OAC /E&O accepted.

Q: A:

Clutter

Verb: ‘To fill or cover with scattered or disordered things that impede movement or reduce effectiveness.’ The term clutter comes from ‘clotteren,’ which means ‘to clot’ and it sounds negative, doesn’t it? Good, it should. Clutter is bad. There is nothing good that can come from a cluttered space. Where there is clutter, there is blocked Qi and such a blockage will affect you. It can transfer to your health, your wealth, your happiness, and yet simple steps will help you succeed on every level. • Have a place for everything, and everything in its place • Consider what you really need in your space • Be proactive with clutter, not reactive We get used to what is around us; it becomes the ‘norm.’ If you want to improve areas of your life, then be a ‘Sam’ and see things the way I do. Look at your space with an ‘unemotional eye.’ Clear the blockages and you will achieve better health, wealth and happiness: it’s as simple as that…

Q: A:

That’s a difficult question to answer and one that needs to be based on each individual. If your Mom is like most seniors, she will want to remain in the comfort of her home, with her memories of her spouse, family and all her familiar belongings surrounding her. She may not tell you this for fear of imposing upon you, but we know that moving, for a senior, is a stressful life event that she may never completely recover from. Research shows us that many seniors who have engaged private home care services early never move from their homes, but increase the frequency of the visits according to their increase in need. Supporting your mom at home may be her best option physically, emotionally and financially.

Q:

A:

I feel taken advantage of by an adult family member who doesn’t work, abuses alcohol, & depends on me for everything! (money, food, cigarettes, transportation, etc). I want to help, but am I enabling?

Although it’s natural to want to help when our loved ones are struggling, if we are repeatedly bailing them out of trouble (financial or otherwise), we are allowing them to continue their self-destructive behaviour and depriving them of experiencing the consequences. Without consequences, there’s no reason for them to change. When we ignore the problem in the hopes that it will go away, or because our loved one gets defensive, we are enabling. We enable when we hinder their growth and development by doing things for them that they are capable of doing for themselves, and we also send the message that they are helpless or incompetent. Recognizing that you are enabling is an important first step! It’s not easy to stop enabling someone you love, but keep in mind that by enabling, you’re not helping. As a Professional Counsellor and a woman in recovery, I offer hope and support to others who are struggling.

When is the right time to make a move? Mom is having trouble managing her home now and I think she would enjoy the social atmosphere of a retirement home. It might help her memory loss if she’s more involved.

Q: A:

Heather Wiseman Certified Personal Trainer

How do I do keep a healthy diet when I have to eat out a lot?

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:

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: A:

What is involved in sports hypnosis?

Sports hypnosis, or mental performance coaching, helps you learn how to harness the power of your mind, so you achieve your peak performance and love what you are doing! You will see how your mind impacts your game and how you can actually improve your mental performance. While everyone’s session is different, because everyone is a unique individual, the overall process involves: • Assessing your performance - finding out your personal blocks, e.g. distractions, emotional states, self-talk, fears, etc. • Developing a personalized plan with your own S.M.A.R.T. goals • Executing the plan • Performing your sport or activity • Debriefing Improving your performance involves working smarter, not harder!
