News Trio facing attempted murder charges

Hope for Hayley CARA BRADY


Morning Star Staff

Lately, I have been having so many days when I have been stranded in bed,� said Hayley McDougall, toying with the edge of her sheet. “This isn’t the kind of life I thought I would have, I’m not the kind of mother I thought I would be. I feel like I’m missing in my husband’s and daughter’s lives a lot of the time. They are what keeps me going but so often, I am not there for them.� McDougall, 30, has had what is called new daily head pain for 10 years. It started suddenly one day when she was at university and hasn’t stopped since. The pain, centred in her temples, used to rate a five or six out of 10 but for about the past year, it has been 10/10 most days, leaving her barely functioning. She took part in a threeyear Mayo Clinic study that implanted neuro-stimulation electrodes at the back of her head and offered some distraction from the pain. The study, which included a number of other participants, showed that the implants definitely helped with pain but they had to be positioned exactly where the pain is felt. For McDougall, that means another operation to feed wires from the implant across her forehead from temple to temple. Neuro-stimulation is used for other kinds of pain in Canada but not for head pain and that means the operation is not paid for by the B.C. Medical Services Plan. Doctors recommended the operation about a year ago but McDougall found out only recently that funding was denied. “There is definitely a need for the medical system to change but


Kathy Goldie and granddaughter Sloan Halliwell, two, play outside while her mother, Hayley McDougall, rests. The family is asking for community support so that McDougall, who has had severe, unremitting head pain for 10 years, can have an operation which will not be paid for by B.C. Medical Services Plan, at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. it changes too slowly for people’s needs. I am going to fight for the change if that is what I have to do, so that this will mean something not just for me and my family but for other people in the future,� she said in a soft voice. “My goal for life is just to be able to be a part of life and at this point that seems like a long stretch. I think I, and others, have a right for that to be attainable. Chronic pain is often overlooked because there is not much that can be done for it in the hospital. I choose not to take up a hospital bed. I have been told that other people at this level of pain for so long sometimes take their own lives but I want to be here for my daughter and my husband (Mike Halliwell) and family. “I am healthy otherwise and the risk of the operation is worth it for me. I have no quality of life now. My life is passing me by. I have good hopes that this could get me to a seven out of 10 or eight out of 10 pain level. I could function with that.� The operation, at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, could take

place within a few weeks once the funding is in place. The extended family members have been doing as much as they can but McDougall’s mother, Kathy Goldie, said they are now at a breaking point, financially and emotionally. “Hayley’s life is being reduced to that bedroom. When she has a rare good day, which is an eight out of 10 pain, and eight out of 10 would put most people in the hospital, we do what we can and take lots of photos so we have those moments and memories,� she said. “Nothing makes a difference to how bad the pain will be on any day. We really didn’t think that MSP would be so reluctant for her to have this operation which is based on a well-respected study and a method that is being used for pain in other parts of the body. What is the difference? It’s only a matter of inches.� The family decided to go ahead with whatever it took to get the operation, which costs about $100,000. (In the United

States, you get an estimate to help decide if you can have an operation or not). “It’s hard to send out emails to everyone you know and bare your soul and ask for money but doctors have told us she’s deteriorating enough that there’s not time to wait for MSP or a miracle. We are very grateful for the generous donations made so far but there is still a long way to go. Our goal is for Hayley to be pain free, or have reduced pain, so that she and Mike and Sloan can be a family that doesn’t need us in this way although we know that we will all still always want to be part of each others’ lives.� They have also made a video with McDougall, available at hopeforhayley or by going to and searching for Hayley McDougall. Donations can be made by cheque to Hayley McDougall or Kathy Goldie and sent to Box 1814, Vernon, B.C., V1T 8C3, or dropped off at Goldie’s office at General Surgery Clinic, 310735th Ave., Vernon.

A number of charges relating to Tuesday’s high-drama police chase have now been approved, says a crown spokesperson. The three accused, Ashley Collins, 19, Shawn Adam Wysynski, 32, and Michael Edward Ellis, 39, will be charged jointly with three counts of attempted murder and one count of robbery using a fire arm, said Neil MacKenzie of the Crown’s office. Ellis and Wysynski are each facing charges of failing to stop a vehicle when being pursued by a police officer and a charge of dangerous driving. Charges should have been sworn by Friday morning, he said, noting the men involved will likely appear to have the charges read to them in the next week from Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre. Collins’ time for an appearance is undetermined as she’s currently being treated in hospital for a gunshot wound. MacKenzie also noted that further charges could be laid in the days ahead, but Okanagan Mounties are still investigating the chase that started just after 1:30 p.m. Tuesday on Boucherie Road, in West Kelowna, and carried on for nearly 70 kilometres to Swan Lake in Vernon.

Med students make Vernon rounds



ANDRE LODDER Morning Star Staff

There’s a first for everything but it’s not often that they’re met with such success In August, Rafal Banas and Mike Fazio of UBC’s Southern Medical Program will complete an Integrated Community Clerkship in Vernon. It marks the first year Vernon was included in the clerkship. With the ICC’s past success throughout Canada, Vernon was added to the participating communities and has met with success for both the students and the staff. “Our faculty are quite excited to have them and see them go from the beginning of third year and not knowing what to do with a patient, to very nearly being practicing physicians at the end,” said Dr. Allison Rankin, Vernon’s ICC Site Education Lead. The ICC takes place in the student’s third year and requires students to work with local family doctors for two afternoons each week, an opportunity that isn’t common in traditional clerkships. It allows students to not only experience a more handson approach to the field but also provides the experience of a doctor-patient relationship they otherwise might not receive. “We get to be involved in their care from the time of their admission to the hospital until their discharge and follow up in the community. We may end up seeing out patients in Emergency Department, round on them during routine hospital visits, assist surgeons in OR, and eventually see them in the office on an outpatient basis,” said Banas

“It always benefits physicians when you’re practicing to have students.” — Dr. Allison Rankin And according to Rankin, with the unique structure, it’s not just the student who is doing the learning. “It always benefits physicians when you’re practicing to have students because you’re continually having to ask yourself, ‘why is it I’m doing this?’” said Rankin. “You get asked questions about things you’ve being doing for years and it just kind of reminds you.” The unique curriculum differs from that in bigger cities and can benefit both those who are moving on to specialize and those pursuing a career

as a family doctor. Subjects are spread throughout the year as opposed to students spending periods of time studying each subject separately. “VJH is a busy community hospital that has multiple medical specialties. We are privileged to get first-hand teaching from various specialists. There is enough both acuity and chronicity in all aspects of medicine.” “The repeated exposures help maintain knowledge rather than learning something in a short period of time and then forgetting it,” said Fazio Fazio, who hopes to spe-

cialize in either pediatrics or obstetrics and gynecology next year, credits his mentors for helping him with his decision to specialize. “There’s a good crew of teachers here and part of my interest came from their excitement in the field,” said Fazio. While the students are certainly benefitting from this unique learning experience, according to Rankin, having a program like this is also a benefit for smaller communities like Vernon. “I’d like to see the community just be excited that there are learners here and that the hospital here is supporting these UBC students. They may be the physicians we see here in the very near future,” said Rankin.

Parks and recreation is a disaster. The mayor of Coldstream favours development over parkland. And Barry Beardsell was just getting warmed up. The former Vernon councillor slammed Greater Vernon Advisory Committee directors during a 13-minute presentation Thursday. “I’m here on behalf of Greater Vernon taxpayers who are concerned about management of parks and recreation, and the accountability related thereto,” said Beardsell, who claims the parks and recreation function has been “a total disaster” since former Regional District of North Okanagan administrator Barry Gagnon left in 2005. Beardsell started his presentation with concerns about the land behind the regional district office (which is where GVAC meetings are held), saying “a million dollar asset has been turned into a swamp.” Beardsell said the expectation for the land was

“A million dollar asset has been turned into a swamp.” — Barry Beardsell for a school, soccer fields, tennis courts and playgrounds. “Not once did Greater Vernon parks directors sanction or approve the destruction of the property,” said Beardsell. “The loss to Greater Vernon taxpayers is enormous.” Beardsell accused Coldstream Mayor Jim Garlick and “possibly the rest of Coldstream council” as being more interested in development than anything else, and called for an independent review for issues related to titles on property, unfulfilled developer commitments and compensation for future roadways and existing damages. The former councillor stated he had “a lot of documentation” to back up his accusations, which troubled Garlick. “The land (behind RDNO) was actually traded with the view to make it a water treatment facility, not a park and we can provide that information,”

said Garlick. “We have been working with volunteer groups on that land to enhance it as a wetlands area because the ministry of environment says it needs to be done.” Garlick said development for that land has existed in Coldstream for years, and the actual development that took place next door to the RDNO office was done before 2005. “There’s a lot of misinformation that muddies the water moving forward,” said Garlick. “I have these concerns when comments made in public become truths someway.” Beardsell also blasted directors for no accountability on the “disastrous events” of the Vernon Rec Centre swimming pool, not having a parks and recreation manager in place to run a $15-million operation, going to referendum on a sports facility at Okanagan College, no review on operations at the Wesbild Centre, which he said is utilized for “little more than hockey,” no replacement plans for the Vernon Civic Arena and no plans for the Vernon Public Art Gallery and Greater Vernon Museum. Administrator Trafford Hall said Beardsell or any member of the public can stand before directors and say anything they want. “It doesn’t have to be substantiated,” said Hall. “Mr. Beardsell presented a long list of grievances. Some are substantiated, some are not, some are unfair and some I’m taking into consideration.”

Pool humidity plan on track ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

A problem that began in 1993 is being fixed. Greater Vernon Advisory Committee directors were informed Thursday that the dehumidification system at the Vernon Rec Centre swimming pool will be replaced. “Our plan is to take the existing unit, rebuild it and use it for the leisure pool,” said Regional District of North Okanagan acting facilities manager Jim Coughlin. “We’ll put a brand new unit on top of the staff room that was just built and that will be for the lap pool.” Coughlin said he hopes work will start on both in the fall and be completed by the spring or summer of 2013. Coughlin and administrator Trafford Hall pointed out to directors that the original system

• Great Quality • Great Value • Great Service 8111 Highland Place (North of Swan Lake) 250-558-5112 HOURS: MON-FRI. 8:00-4:30 SATURDAYS BY APPOINTMENT

was undersized when the pool was built in 1993. The unit was shut off because of expensive repairs needed to keep it running, but that led to roof and wall damage in the pool area. Work on the walls will begin when the new units are in place. Hall said directors will get a presentation in the fall on the history of what went wrong with the original system. Repairs are likely to cost around $1.7 million, but Coughlin said things are on budget. Tenders have gone out to put in a new heating system for the rec centre’s auditorium and Dogwood Gym. Existing heating lines have been ripped up and new rooftop units will be installed. A storage room upgrade at the Dogwood has been completed.

Suspicion has been ruled out in a fire at a Spallumcheen barn Thursday that contained free range chickens. The call about the barn fire in the 4200 block of Wyatt Road came in to the Armstrong

Spallumcheen Fire Department shortly before 6 p.m. “The chicken barn went up in smoke and some chickens died,” said Alastair Crick, assistant fire chief with the Armstrong Spallumcheen department. “The owner was able to get a lot of the

birds out of the barn, but I’m not sure of the percentage.” The fire was contained to the barn and extinguished, with crews staying on site until around 11 p.m. Crick was continuing his investigation into the blaze as of Friday morning.

Crews cut down bullrushes along Okanagan Landing Road in March in preparation for flood protection work.

Landing flood protection underway Morning Star Staff

All the bullrushes that were sawed down next to Marshall Field earlier this year were not in vain. The City of Vernon is starting construction of flood protection works in the Okanagan Landing area this week. Mounce Construction Ltd. will be working primarily at the Marshall Field site until November, between the soccer centre access road and tennis court parking area. Construction will also take place on Okanagan Landing Road to accommodate the installation of a new drainage culvert and associated works. The bullrush lining the road were cut down in March to prepare for the work, and to not disturb

blackbirds during nesting season. An environmental monitor has been retained to protect and relocate fish and wildlife on the site. The project will result in minor delays to local traffic, with single-lane alternating traffic on Okanagan Landing Road taking place periodically. The existing paved path and a portion of the tennis court parking area will be closed for the duration of construction. A temporary unpaved path is available for the duration of construction. There will be no interruption of parks services. The City of Vernon would also like to remind the public to obey construction signage, flag person’s directions and posted speed limits through construction zones.

Motorists not getting ‘bus only’ message Morning Star Staff

Vernon motorists still need to learn that a former downtown street is now for buses only. The Vernon RCMP detachment has received several complaints about near accidents with pedestrians in the bus zone between 30th and 31st Streets by the bus depot and Cenotaph Park. “Vehicles going through this area on several occasions have almost hit bus passengers that are crossing to catch buses,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. An officer working the road Tuesday morning – in one half-hour stretch – wrote eight traffic violations for disobeying a traffic control device, which is a sign posted saying “buses only.” The fine is $121.

“The officer said he could have written double that, as many cars drove past while he was writing up tickets to drivers he stopped,” said Molendyk. The Vernon RCMP would like to remind Vernon residents that this section of street is for buses only, and it is clearly marked. “Traffic enforcement will continue in the area to bring awareness to the problem before we have an injury to a pedestrian,” said Molendyk.

Olympic observations


do love the Olympics. I did miss the opening ceremonies as I was camping (hey, it is summer time, one has to live a little) but I’ve been watching highlights and tape-delayed coverage at night and the odd live stuff in the morning (and if the truth be told I may check the internet the odd time during the day just to see how Canada is doing, yeah, like I’m the only one). Anyway I’ll just offer a few observations at this point in the London Games that I’ve noticed during my channel-flipping episodes. And that’s precisely the first thing, the level of coverage on TV that allows one to witness numerous things at once (although there’s always the risk of annoying fellow television watchers to Glenn Mitchell the point of argument). Why, just this morning (Friday) before work I was simultaneously watching the Canadian women’s basketball team’s game against Brazil and Roger Federer’s tennis match on two different channels. Thankfully I was alone at the time so I could flip channels to my heart’s content but I managed to witness Canada’s wonderful upset victory and also catch at least the flavour of the tennis match which was great but unfortunately went on so long I had to get to work (damn work anyway), but I heard later that the Swiss legend won, of course. And at night, the choices are multiplied as there’s CTV, TSN, NBC, NBCHD etc, etc. If you’re not into beach volleyball then there’s rowing on the other channel or gymnastics on the other, literally a smorgasbord of sports. And, I like how some sports finally get the spotlight during the Games. It was stirring stuff watching Canada’s Christine Girard win the bronze medal in weightlifting, And Antoine Valois-Fortier come third in men’s judo. Not to mention Brent Hayden’s bronze in the high-profile men’s 100m freestyle. Their personal stories of how they overcame the odds through hard work, perseverance, team-


work, not to mention performing under immense pressure on the world stage, and maybe a little good fortune (in swimming we’re talking hundredths of a second between medals and, well, not medals) are truly inspirational. Of course some sports are easier to watch than others. I respect them all but I don’t necessarily know the intricacies of all of them and that’s where the announcers can make or break how watchable they are. I watched the judo but I can’t say it was easy to watch as in my mind I couldn’t figure out how the points were scored, which makes it difficult to know when to cheer or not. But you could chalk that down to my ignorance of the sport as much as anything. Swimming I understand but I lose track of which swimmer is in which lane very easily, even with all the graphics on TV, which takes away from it a little. Synchronized diving is beautiful to watch, and my wife likes it a lot, but I don’t totally get it. I understand it’s difficult to pull off but I’m not sure I understand the point of trying to do it at the same time. Then why not synchronized gymnastics or synchronized weightlifting? Nah, maybe not. My kids ask me why traditional sports like baseball and golf aren’t in the Olympics. Good question, I think they were demonstration sports at one time but who knows what happens after that. Not enough universal appeal I guess. That’s another thing about the Olympics. It’s powerful and interesting enough to pull the whole family in and it becomes something we find we’re enjoying and talking about together. Normally our TV viewing patterns are strikingly different, although I can be talked into watching Family Guy on occasion. And then there’s the patriotic juices that get flowing and draws Canadians, not to mention the rest of the world, into the Olympic fold. In this fragmented, complex world the Olympics is one of the few things that can actually bring the world together in a positive pursuit of sport. Well, mostly positive....

Coastal authorities in B.C. have long been putting together tsunami and earthquake preparedness plans. The need is growing greater for the three levels of government to have a definite plan in place to deal with potentially environmentally dangerous debris from last year’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan washing up on B.C. coastlines. Items ripped apart by powerful waves, much of them covered with sea life that could threaten native species, have for months been arriving on the western shorelines of Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii. Residents and others concerned about threats to the pristine nature of coastal areas have been doing their best to remove the material. No one knows, given the unpredictable nature of ocean currents, just how much flotsam will reach B.C. shores. But enough has arrived already to inform provincial and federal authorities of the extent of the problem. The province is in a “fact-gathering stage” on the issue, said Environment Minister Terry Lake, who recently toured Haida Gwaii. His comments that any cleanup plan must be a joint effort between local, provincial and federal governments and First Nations make sense, but indicate the province is not willing to take the lead on tackling this problem. The shockingly low cleanup grant of $50,000 from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, for each of the five states affected, shows how low this issue is on that government’s priority list. We hope our federal government, already showing a similar lack of respect for the environment through budget cuts, does not take a similar tack by downplaying this serious issue. Victoria News

MP column sparks questions


ecently, MP Colin Mayes wrote about changes to the EI program (“EI Overhauled” ). I responded at length to his notion that the changes are in response to apparently significant numbers of claimants who "choose not to work," who see EI as a "business model," who are "frequent abusers" seeking "handouts." Four other people from the community also commented negatively on Mr. Mayes’ column, some of them asking him to explain or retract his characterization of EI claimants or apologize outright for them. Will Mr. Mayes be answering me and the other people who have written in? I myself asked him a number of questions that I would also like to have answered. Does this Member of Parliament understand that EI is an “insurance” program paid for by workers and their employers and that workers are meant to turn to it in time of need?

decide that it is probably a very bad idea to have left turns from side roads onto Highway 97? Margreet DenOudsten TRANSIT TRENDS In response to the editorial in The Morning Star, "No clear transit trend yet," obviously the writer has no need to use the transit system. Nor does the writer have any people with mobility issues. These people are not just the elderly but come in all ages. The lack of compassion and understanding is enough to make you weep. Take the remark, "While the instinct is to overreact and spread doom and gloom." I wonder how the writer would feel if he were the one sitting on the curb in the rain, waiting for the bus? Then, and I quote, "there is naturally going to be a transition as riders adjust." Most have no choice. They being the poor and the handi-

availability or unavailability of jobs? Why are EI rule changes necessary when research shows that the vast majority of unemployed workers actively seek work,

capped. Just how do you adjust? The majority of people using transit are on a fixed income or are the working poor. So just what options are there? Also written, "Realistically the move may mean some residents may have to find other options." So easily said, so hard to do. Perhaps in your wisdom, you could write an article with some suggestions as to how we could do this adjusting and tell us what other options we have. Keeping in mind the lack of funds, perhaps no close family, friends that no longer drive or can't afford a vehicle. Those remarks are a slap in the face of the most vulnerable. I'd be willing to bet that every handicapped person, given a choice, would choose to be healthy and able to do that "bit of a walk" to the library. Just ask the person living with asthma, shortness of breath, visual and hearing impairment, pain all day, every day.

do accept job offers, and often accept much lower wages than previously earned? Why have there been no programs announced for Canadian college or university students to help bridge their way into the Canadian labour market? Why has there been no increased investment in EI-funded training which would assist unemployed Canadians to find good jobs? Why has the government allowed employers to pay foreign temporary workers up to 15 per cent less than Canadian workers doing the same job, thereby making foreign workers more attractive to employers than Canadian workers and driving down the wages for all workers? Why is our nation going to be brought to its knees through $5.2 billion per year in budget cuts while corporations have been provided $28 billion per year in tax cuts? Does Mr. Mayes know that the food bank in Kelowna had 25,000 pounds of food trucked in from Alberta just the other day because applications for assistance have been up 12 per cent from last year? Dianne Varga

Plus a host of handicaps that are not visible. Why should these people have to adjust or find other options? We had a system that was working. What did we do to deserve the hardships created by these unnecessary changes in transit? Who benefitted? Certainly not the transit user. Erma Soderquist NO OPTIONS This letter is to say that we agree with everything said in the letter, "Accessibility being ignored." However, we take umbrage with the remarks made in the July 11 editorial, in particular the statement, "Realistically, the move may mean some residents may have to find other options." Tell that to the working poor, the senior on a fixed income or the person trying to live on a disability pension. Is this today's version of "Let them eat cake?" Jo Maas and 18 others

Water deaths prompt warning Morning Star Staff

Investigations into the tragic deaths of eight individuals who drowned in B.C.’s rivers and lakes are prompting warnings, particularly in the southern Interior. The B.C. Coroners Service recently began its investigations into the deaths of individuals from ages 12 to 75, occurring in a variety of circumstances. With the B.C. Day weekend underway, the Coroners Service and Emergency Management B.C. are warning residents and visitors to take extra care when engaging in water-related activities in an effort to prevent further loss of life. “Touring the Interior region of the province recently, I have never seen such high water levels and flow rates at this time of year,” said Chris Duffy, executive director for Emergency Management. High runoff from the winter’s snowpack and heavy rains during the spring and early summer have left many rivers, streams, and lakes with much higher water levels than is usual at this time of year. As well, many rivers and streams, especially in the southern Interior, are running much faster, and at higher levels, than would normally be expected by the B.C. Day weekend. As a result of these unusual water conditions, activities that might have been quite safe in midsummer in other years may not be safe this summer. “The risk in many activities such as rafting, tubing and canoeing is likely to be much higher than might otherwise be expected,” chief coroner Lisa Lapointe said. Lapointe noted that visitors to B.C. are often at particularly high risk because they do not recognize that local waters are likely to be more hazardous than those in other parts of Canada or the world. The water is often colder, lakes have steep dropoffs, and underwater debris can pose unexpected difficulties.

Another road closure is in effect due to

— Lisa Lapointe Even local rivers and lakes that have dropped in volume pose a concern. Over in the Shuswap River, the flooding in June caused a significant amount of debris to be washed into the waterway. “Now that the weather’s turned a lot of people are using the waterways,” said Rick Fairbairn, Area D director of tubers and swimmers in the river. “I just hope that they are aware of the hazards.” Accidental drowning deaths in B.C. 2006-10 ■ A total of 404 accidental drownings have occurred in B.C. over the five year period, for an average of about 80 drowning deaths each year. ■ Five out of six of those who drowned were male. ■ Alcohol and/or drugs were noted to be contributing factors in more than two out of five of the deaths (42.3 per cent). ■ About one-seventh of the deaths involved visitors to B.C. ■ Almost one-third of all deaths (30.9 per cent) occurred during the two months of July and August. Almost half of the visitors who drowned (49.2 per cent) died during that two-month period. ■ The three most common recreational activities involving in accidental drowning were: swimming, motor boating, and canoeing/kayaking. ■ The highest proportion of accidental drowning occurred in the southern Interior (an area which encompasses the Kamloops area, the Okanagan and the Kootenays). ■ More than half the deaths occurred in the age group from 20 through 49.

Grindrod Days centred around families ANDRE LODDER Morning Star Staff

The middle of August might be the best time to head north with the family to check out Grindrod. There’s bound to be plenty of entertainment for the whole family as the 7th annual Grindrod Days gets underway Aug. 11-12. “It’s very much centered around the children,” said Lindsay Kibbe, one of the organizers. But that doesn’t mean adults aren’t welcome, the family-friendly event is as much fun for the parents as it is for the kids. It all starts Saturday morning with the pancake breakfast, one of the most popular in the valley getting underway at 8 a.m. at Grindrod Park. “Last year we got around 250 people come for the breakfast, it was unreal,” said Kibbe. “They all come back because they say we have the best breakfast.” Other events include live entertainment, games, tractor exhibits and more. Sunday morning it will be the dogs time to shine for the Mutt Show at 9 a.m. “We did it for the kids originally, but we started getting lots of adults too,” said Kibbe, on the popularity of the Mutt Show. Of course dogs are welcome to attend as long as the owners remember to bring the leash. Organizers are hoping the clouds will stay away as the weather has typically been great in the previous years. “We’ve been lucky in the past, we’ve only had one year of rain so far and hopefully this year will be nice too,” said Kibbe. With all the events and music planned, the 7th annual Grindrod Days is gearing up to be one of the best yet.

Okanagan cherry growers hurting from storms JUDIE STEEVES

branch. Some growers have lost their entire crop of cherries as the result of a series of storms that tore through the valley the last half of July. General manager Byron Jonson says there were 10 distinct hail events and a lot of small storms in the past two weeks. In particular, hail and rain devastated some areas both Friday, July 20 and Friday, July 27, while in-between multiple storms inflicted various levels of damage in different areas. Worst hit was the South Okanagan where overall there are moderate to severe losses to the cherry crop, he said. Rain has caused more damage than hail, because when too much moisture hits a warm, ripening cherry it plumps it up too much — until the skin can’t stretch any more — and it splits, rendering the fruit unfit for consumption. Some varieties of cherries are more prone


Recent rain and hail storms have caused considerable damage to cherry trees at some local farms. to damage from splitting when it rains just as fruit is colouring, while some of the newer varieties developed at the Pacific Agri-food Research Centre in Summerland

are resistant to such damage. Jonson said there was also some damage to peaches, but it’s too early to say whether any of the apple or pear crops were damaged by the hail. He estimated there are around 350 producers in the southern part of the valley who were affected by the stormy weather. At this point, how-

ever, he said growers are required to file a notification with the production insurance branch to say they may have sustained a loss, but often it’s not yet known how widespread that loss is, or whether there was definitely any damage. There were significantly fewer growers in the northern half of the valley who sustained damage, although even there some growers lost

their entire crop, he said. It had been estimated this year’s crop would be larger than usual, but this will reduce the overall amount of cherries that will head to market. The news will also mean growers have to spend the same amount to grow the crop and harvest it, but won’t have the returns to pay for those inputs.

Sarah Mehain, a member of the Vernon Kokanee Swim Club, will compete with Team Canada at the Summer Paralympic Games, Aug. 29 to Sept. 9, in London. The 17-year-old will compete in six events.

Mehain hears London Games calling GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

When Sarah Mehain started with the Vernon Kokanee Swim Club at age 11, coach Bruce Melton told her the Paralympics was a possibility. “I didn’t believe him then, but I got into it,” said Mehain, who will compete with Team Canada at the Summer Games, Aug. 29-Sept. 9, in London. Mehain, who suffers from hemiplegia, a condition that affects her coordination as one side of her body is stronger than the other, will compete in six events in the S7 division. The ultra-humble 17-year-old Seaton student has set a goal to reach the final in each race. “This time is mostly for the experience; next time I’ll go for medals,” said Mehain. “I just want to improve my times, swim really well and have a great — Sarah experience.” Given Mehain’s world rankings, she is capable of achieving her goals, and then some. She is fifth in 50-metre butterfly, sixth in both 100 breaststroke and 200 IM, seventh in 50 freestyle, ninth in 100 backstroke and 13th 100 free. She holds Canadian long- and short-course records for the 100 breast. Having worked with Mehain for the last four years, Kokanee head coach Renate Terpstra has witnessed a huge transformation in her student’s mind-set. “When she was younger she had a hard time to really

commit to it, to all the hours of training,” said Terpstra. “Now she’s really focussed and works really well and challenges herself. “I expect a lot from her. I think she will do really well. I’m not sure if she will medal, but of course, it’s her first Paralympics.” Having competed in world championships and Pan American Games, Mehain is used to swimming against world-calibre competition. However, she knows the energy level is going be cranked way up in London. There will be 4,200 athletes from 160 countries competing at the Paralympics, with about 600 representatives from 66 countries in the swimming events alone. “I know most of them (swim competitors) and I’m comfortable racing against them, but it’ll be so different at Paralympics because the atmosphere is Mehain so much different. It’ll be so much more intense probably.” Mehain’s schedule leading up to the Games has been just as hectic as the bustling city of London itself. After provincial championships in Richmond (July 5-8), she headed to Winnipeg for the Speedo Can/Am Para-swimming Championships (July 20-22), and followed that with a twoweek, high-altitude (7,000 feet above sea level) national team training camp in Flagstaff, Ariz. at the end of July. After a five-day reprieve back in Vernon, she is now in northern Italy for another two-week camp. From there, the

Canadian team heads straight to England. “It’s almost scary because it’s almost (here),” said Mehain, who, when she is away from the pool, enjoys horseback riding, playing the violin and French horn, and Highland dancing. “I’ve been thinking about making the team since I went to Beijing Olympic trials four years ago. “Especially in the last year, I’ve been thinking about it at practice. I’ve been dreaming about it and doing everything I can to swim fast in Montreal (Paralympic trials in March) and make the team.” Mehain has had a blast training with the other 23 members (nine men and 15 women) and coaches with the Canadian Paralympic program. “Most of the girls are younger, and it’s really cool to hang out with them because they’re all going through the same stuff and they know what it’s like,” she said. “You get a different coach almost every time you go to a training camp. I really enjoy working with different coaches because they all have something different to put in.” And while Mehain hopes to get in a little sightseeing and shopping along London’s High Street boutiques, she is equally excited to compete in the Aquatics Centre, dubbed the Stingray. Designed by architect Zaha Hadid, it forms part of the gateway to the Olympic Park. “I think just seeing the Olympic pool we’ll be competing in will be pretty awesome,” she said. “I’ve seen pictures and it looks like the most amazing facility.” Mehain thanked her family, coaches and everyone else at the Kokanee club for supporting her along the way.

Holland derby heads to overtime


otes, quotes and anecdotes from the wonderful world of golf... They needed a one-hole playoff in Ken Holland’s annual derby up at Predator Ridge Golf Resort two weekends ago. Vernon Panther hoop grad Steve King, a member at Predator, and fellow member Brad Lay, a Medicine Hat Tiger alumnus, defeated exNHLers and Vernon products Jeff Finley Kevin Mitchell and Matt Higgins by parring the 18th hole at the Ridge course. Finley, now a scout with the Detroit Red Wings based out of Kelowna, and Higgins, married and working in Calgary after a solid European career, bogeyed the extra hole. Both teams shot scorching 21-under over three rounds.


Weber helps Sicamous flood victims Josh Gorges of the Montreal Canadiens, a Kelowna summer resident, led his scramble team to victory in the inaugural Sicamous Shootout July 13 at Hyde Mountain in Sicamous. Staged by Sicamous boys Shea Weber and Cody Franson, who also live in Kelowna come the offseason, the fundraiser for cancer research raised more than $100,000.

Part way through the tourney, Weber thrilled attendees and volunteers when he announced he would donate $50,000 of his own money to a disaster relief fund set up to help residents of Sicamous who suffered in the recent flooding. He made that pledge just before signing that humongous new $110 million contract with Nashville. “I still think he might be underpaid at that price…,” Franson told Black Press Sports. “I’m biased, maybe because he’s a good friend of mine and I’ve known him for a long time, and I think very highly of him. “I think if you go around the league, there’s probably 20 other teams that would have paid him that dollar, if not more. I don’t think you can say a guy is overpaid or not worth that when there’s that much want for him out there.” That the Predators would match the Flyers’ offer did not surprise Sicamous Eagles’ GM Wayne March. With the team already having lost Ryan Suter, March says Weber, an Eagles alumni, is the man holding the team together. “He’s the heart and soul of that team. They’re starting to build a good franchise there and the fanbase is coming back and if they lost him, as far as I’m concerned, it would just go down hill.”

Nike treats Crowe like he’s a king Kal Laker grad Jesse Crowe, the head

pro out at Canoe Creek in Salmon Arm, enjoyed a luxurious paid vacation in Halifax last week. Crowe took in the Telus World Skins Game on Nike’s nickel since his course runs an exclusive Nike shop. Through 18 holes, defending champion Jhonattan Vegas never trailed, but a single shot from England’s Paul Casey brought Vegas – and the house – down, winning a $100,000, closest-to-thepin chip-off to capture the charity event at Glen Arbour Golf Course on Tuesday. After only one skin and $15,000 on Monday, Casey finished with eight skins and $185,000 thanks to a brilliant strike in the chip-off. Sweden’s Carl Pettersson (three skins, $60,000), Calgary’s Stephen Ames (one skin, $15,000) and American Lucas Glover (one skin, $15,000) rounded out the field. Crowe got up close and personal with all the PGA stars and even cracked a bra joke with Pettersson after his microphone wires got crossed up in his clothing. He also played in a Pro-Am which featured Canadians versus Americans. “Last year we beat them by about 45 strokes so they brought a new team with some guy who shot 62 in the morning and 66 in the afternoon,” said Crowe. “In the end, they got us by four strokes.” Crowe was inside the TV ropes for the opening four holes on Day 1 and on the last three holes on Day 2. You can catch

his mug hanging on a Telus sign, on TSN, when they air the Skins Game following the Olympics.

Johnson sets Rise course record Myles Johnson of Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club set a course record 67 during an Interior Callaway Pro Tour stop at The Rise a few weeks ago. Johnson and Crowe share fifth place on the Order of Merit with 250 points. Johnson started play Thursday in the Quebec PGA’s $150,000 Rogers Canada Cup (see story on A20). Dean Claggett of Two Eagles leads the points race with 321, and Rob Anderson of Kelowna Golf & CC is second at 276 and Josh Fleming of Gallagher’s Canyon third at 273. The Rise is holding the Vernon Vipers inaugural charity tournament for KidSport Sunday, Aug. 26. Carey Price of the Canadiens and Jerred Smithson of the Panthers are confirmed NHLers. Entry fee for the 18-hole scramble is $150 and includes golf, power cart, dinner, tee gift and prizes. There will be a 1 p.m. shotgun start. Entries and sponsorship at several levels are required.

Findlay powers Brew Crew with first-half hat trick Morning Star Staff

Heather Findlay converted three first-half breakaways as the Capri Insurance Brew Crew bounced Centerline Attack 4-2 in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Division 2 play Thursday night at Marshall Field #2. Both teams played shorthanded in an intense battle, with Amelia Wirch having a couple of great attempts on goal for the Brew Crew. Keeper Emily Hamer had to be sharp as Centerline struck two crossbars in a row that nearly rebounded off her. The Brew Crew played a smart passing game, with great control from centre midfielder Tina Garrison, who scored the final goal from a throw-in just outside the 18-yard box. In the second half, Centerline’s Anna Clarke blasted a shot just over the hands of Hamer to pull within two. Amy Markin, Robin Penner and Stacey Copeland shut down the Centerline Attack on the back end. Clarke netted the other Attack goal, while terrific showings were turned in by Tammy L’Heureux, Lisa Ternowski and Lisa Wright. The Centreline goalkeeping was shared by Kris Ponto

and Stephanie Paull. Sunterra Custom Homes Sista’s and North Okanagan United drew 3-3 at Marshall #4. The Sista’s first goal came from Jennie Currie on a pass up the middle from Marisa Wiebe. The second goal was the result of some great passing between forwards Currie and Andrea Zubot, who relayed to Sharina Zantingh for the goal. The third goal went to Zubot off a beauty shot from 20 yards out, sailing it just under the crossbar. Newbie Amanda Gaythorpe played great up front for Sista’s. Keeper Suzyn August was fearless in making some great saves. Her best was a fingertip deflection of a dangerous shot that she managed to push just over the crossbar. Down 3-0, NOU rallied by using zig-zag passing to work the ball out to their wings. Edeen Ramsey, Sarah Kwantes and Jenilee Vellacott scored for United. NOU got awesome play by Kailee Barss controlling the middle defence, while Sandy Thiessen, Leslie Arkell and Vellacott commanded the midfield. Chick Kickers OMG scored three quick goals and held on for a 4-3 win over Randy Rockets on Marshall #3. Jenelle Woods and Cara Main combined on the right side for the first goal. Jen Garnett, showing great control in the middle, added a deuce, and versatile Bobbi Catt buried a low shot off a great corner from Monica Holubowski for the final Chick Kicker tally. Chick Kickers had superb defence from Brenda Streichert, Bobbi Knopf, Nadine Krywonos and Erica August. Wendy Nadeau was solid in net. ■ Denis Chabot pulled the hat trick as Kal Tire shelled host Winfield 5-0 in men’s 50+ league play Thursday night at Beasley Park. Elder statesman Tony Cheshire scored his first goal of the season on a left-footer from in tight to earn the Newcastle Fish &

Chips Man of the Match. He also ran miles down the wing. Jenne Huberts completed the offence for the 11-5-1 Tiremen, who had Geoff Bradbury in net. The Silver Stars booted the Kelowna #1 Kickers 5-2 with a well-balanced effort at Marshall #3, where the grass was about seven inches long. Rob Ross, Eastside Mario’s Man of the Match, led the 6-7-4 Stars with two goals, while singles came from Don Eyers, John Matejicka and Jiri Kudrna. Allen Bensmiller shook the dust and cobwebs out of his keeper gloves and stood in for absent Ray Tims.

Thunder go up 2-0 Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Brodie MacDonald is putting his 6-foot-7, 270-pound frame to good use in the Western Lacrosse Association playoffs. The 22-yearold Langley Thunder netminder recorded 31 saves to backstop his team to a 9-6 win over the host Burnaby Lakers in Game 2 MacDonald of their best-ofseven semifinal series Friday night at Bill Copeland Arena.

Langley built a 3-0 lead after one period, extending the margin to 7-3 after two. Burnaby's Dane Stevens scored twice in the last two minutes of regulation to make the contest look closer than it actually was. First star Lewis Ratcliff led the visitors with five goals and one assist on a dozen shots. Scott Jones had four goals for Burnaby. Langley was 2-for-5 on the powerplay, Burnaby went 2-for-6.

Johnson chasing Cup Morning Star Staff

Personal Service You Can Count On




BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL Even though you’ll have ample opportunity to expand your social circle in the year ahead, take care to mix different elements carefully. For example, you might want to keep your business friends separated from your close pals.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Be up front and forthright about requesting favors, and you’re more likely to be granted what you ask of others. When you’re coy, it tends to cause people to feel as if they’re being manipulated.


HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 110621

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Keep your expectations within reasonable bounds when negotiating a deal with another. Remember, each time something is given to you, you’ll want to give something equivalent in return. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Don’t hesitate to disassociate yourself from your associates or co-workers in order to achieve an important objective, if you find they can’t emulate your ambition and drive. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you want to do your best in a competitive involvement, playing the game must be more important to you than winning. Stay loose, and you’ll enjoy every minute of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Although there are usually some complications involved, joint ventures look to be promising for you. Attempt to maintain parity of effort regardless of who else is involved. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Unless you and your mate are in accord on the major and minor points of an important issue, little of value will be achieved. Each must be supportive of the other. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Be very careful about your spending habits if you are shopping with someone who isn’t as materially fortunate as you. Thoughtless actions could make him or her feel totally inferior. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Don’t put yourself in the position of having to make a choice between spending

time with someone you like and with someone you’re obligated to. Find a way to get everyone mixing together. ARIES (March 21-April 19) An activity that appeals to you might not be as equally tantalizing to another, so don’t foist it on him or her. Try to come up with something that everyone enjoys. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Try to relax and enjoy life a bit, but don’t do so at the expense of neglecting a big responsibility or major duty. You wouldn’t have any fun with things hanging over your head.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Although you’ll be both industrious and clever, you could easily yield to extravagant whims that would diminish your returns. Try to stay on course. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Do your best to keep your emotions on an even keel so that you don’t suffer any sudden mood swings that could frustrate everyone with whom you have dealings.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes, weight gain, mood swings and low energy. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment uses bio-identical, plant based hormones that exactly duplicate hormones your body produces.

Camels and their jockeys head to the finish line at the famed camel race track of Al-Shahaniya in the Middle East country of Qatar.

Skyscrapers and sandscapes IRENE BUTLER Special To The Morning Star

QATAR - Ever since tales of Aladdin and stories of magic carpets swept my imagination away in grade school, my desire to journey through the Arabian Peninsula has never waned. Now, all these many years later, my dream is finally realized. My husband Rick and I arrive in Qatar, the small country that juts into the Arabian Sea like a thumb off Saudi Arabia’s border, to discover how this culture steeped in tradition has melded with modernity. Souq Waqif (market) is the perfect place to soak up tradition. Waqif existed since the days when Bedouin nomads traded goats, sheep and wool for essential items. Time has not changed the maze of passageways with mud-rendered walls and wood beamed ceilings. We meander past small shops piled high with spices, dates, figs, perfumes, pots, plastic everything, aquarium fishes, and puppies. A father passes with his small daughter clinging to his one hand, while in the other he carries his purchase – a falcon. The ancient art of falconry dates back to at least the seventh century BC. Every café in the market is filled with customers puffing their choice of sheesha (flavoured tobacco) through bubbling water pipes called hookahs. The air is opaque with smoky bouquets of sweet


A father and daughter do some shopping while carrying a falcon. apple, strawberry, rose and mint. Upon checking our “must do” list, we note that seeing the desert landscapes and camel races are in the forefront. Our new friend Jerri, an expatriate who works in the country’s oil industry, graciously offers to drive us to the unique limestone formations known as “desert mushrooms” at Bir Zekreet, and lucky for us, the famed camel race track of Al-Shahaniya is on the way! As we approach the track,

my heart leaps at the sight of these “ships of the desert” in compounds along the roadway; strings of them crisscrossing the highway bringing traffic to a halt. We pull into the Al-Shahaniya complex and gleefully make our way close to the track. Practising jockeys and camels in bunches stir up clouds of dust as they race by. Some of the jockeys bouncing along on adult camels also hold the reins of a juvenile camel with no rider, no doubt

a learning process for the gangly young ’uns. Leaving this sport of sheikhs, we barrel south again, arriving at Bir Zekreet for sunset. The fading light casts an eerie glow over the weirdly spectacular “mushrooms,” the result of winds that have whittled away the softer sedimentary rock leaving pillars below large intact tops – a geography lesson of desert formation. Back in Doha we stroll past mega-skyscrapers along Al-Corniche, the U-shaped avenue that hugs the shimmering turquoise Gulf waters. Then it is on to superlative stadiums of Sport City, built for the 2006 Asian Games. At the nearby Villagio Mall, the extravagance must be seen to be believed. Shoppers take time for a gondola ride along the faux-Venetian canal running through the middle of the mall’s ultra-wide corridors. Qatari men in impeccable white throbe (floorlength shirt-dress) twirl prayer beads of pearls, jade, or gold. Women’s abeyyas (black robes) and hejabs (head scarves) are trimmed with gold, silver or gems; their fingers flash diamonds the size of marbles. I came away feeling a genie had granted my wish. I’d found the Arabia of old in the bazaarlike souqs and harsh desert terrain, was dazzled by the boom decade’s riches, and warmed by Bedouin hospitality. Irene Butler is with Travel Writers’ Tales, a travel article syndicate.

Bridge by Phillip Alder BAD DECLARER-PLAY HELPS THE DEFENSE Albert Einstein said, “When you are courting a nice girl, an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder, a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.” Oh, that his Theory of Relativity were that easy. When you are playing an easy contract, five minutes seems like a second. When you are in an impossible contract, five minutes quickly runs up to 10 minutes. If today’s deal looks familiar, you read yesterday’s column. Then, South, in three no-trump, won the first trick with dummy’s heart ace and played on clubs to get home. Now suppose that South plays low from the board

at trick one. What should happen? South’s three-no-trump response showed a good 12 to 15 points, a balanced hand, fewer than four spades (no negative double), and at least one heart stopper. His hand is nearly perfect; it would be improved with a second heart stopper. After declarer plays low from the dummy, East wins with his king. But what does he do next? West’s lead must be a singleton or the higher card of a doubleton. So South has two heart stoppers. And dummy’s club suit is threatening to provide sufficient tricks for the contract. Since plowing on with hearts won’t be good enough, East should shift

to a diamond. And given dummy’s singleton nine, he ought to lead the 10. This establishes three diamond tricks to go with the heart king and a club winner. When working on one suit looks as though it will not defeat the contract, look at the other choices, however long that takes you.

Jo and David Jones after their wedding at Southend-on-Sea, England Aug. 12, 1962. David Jones as Gremio and Jo Jones as Baptista in the Powerhouse production of The Taming of the Shrew.

A double celebration

Next weekend, Jo and David Jones are celebrating their golden wedding anniversary (and David’s recent 80th birthday). Both were born in England; they married in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, in August 1962, and flew to Singapore for the first two years of their marriage. Son Adam was born there in 1963, and Craig was born in England in 1965. David served in the RAF for more than 20 years, with postings to many parts of the world; and Jo, after completing an honours degree in modern languages, was a flight attendant with Pan Am for two½ years before becoming a teacher. After a final military posting to Canada, the Joneses came to Vernon as immigrants

in 1971. Jo enjoyed a career as a teacher with the Vernon School District for 19 years; and David, after a short spell in the construction industry, took over Star West Realty, conducted commercial real estate seminars across Canada, and wrote a regular newspaper column, as well as being elected alderman of the city in 1986. Adam and Craig completed grade school in Vernon, and both have gone on to academic careers, Adam as professor of political science at UBC Okanagan, and Craig as professor of law at Thompson Rivers University. Jo and David have both been active community volunteers, especially with the Powerhouse Theatre, where they are Life

North Okanagan Valley Gleaners Society volunteer Dianne Egerton checks the weekly silent auction items at the store. Proceeds from the used furniture and appliance store go to support the Gleaners Processing Site which dries local food to be used in needy countries around the world.


People donate unneeded household items, shoppers find new treasures and necessities and other people in need get nutritious meals. This circle of caring is made possible by the North Okanagan Valley Gleaners Society Store. The store operates entirely with donated furniture, appliances and smaller household items with a volunteer staff. The money raised goes to support the processing site which dries donated local food which is then made into soup mixes to be used by aid agencies. Last year, the processing site, also staffed by volunteers, made more than two million servings of soup mix. The bags of soup mix, dried fruit and hospital equipment are sent with non-profit agencies to help with relief work. The 2011 harvest was sent to Moldova, a small country that was part of the former Soviet Union. The North Okanagan Valley Gleaners

Society was formed in 2007 by a group of people who wanted to share the valley’s harvest with others. “We rely on donations and we appreciate them. We have some very generous donors, both for the store and for processing,� said James Van Der Tas, a volunteer. “But we do have to ask that things for the store be in reasonable shape and operating condition. Ask yourself, ‘Would I give this to my best friend?’ If we get things that can’t be used, we have to pay to take them to the dump and that means we have less to give.� The store, located across from Carpet Castle and the former Bakers Dozen building, is a place to look for everything from antiques, to good furniture of all kinds, some of it solid wood, good for use as is or for refinishing or re-purposing, sewing machines, ornaments, pictures, lamps, filing cabinets, garden pots, outdoor furniture, musical instruments, trunks, even records and books. There is a silent auction each week for


one or two of the more unusual items that come in. People can drop by the store and put in a bid. “We sell a lot of sofas and love seats and lamps but you could find anything. It changes all the time,� said volunteer Dianne Egerton. “We have some people who come in and say they didn’t know we were here so we want people to know what we are doing and we would like it if people would consider us when they have good, used items that they don’t need anymore.� The store will pick up donations by arrangement but has to charge for deliveries. The Gleaners Used Furniture and Appliance Store, with manager Leanne Nelson, is open at #B 4405-29th St. Vernon, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, or to volunteer at the store or the processing site in Coldstream, call 250-549-1123.

Club Fit, a non competitive sport for Special Olympic athletes, has been a favourite the last few years and the coach volunteers are ready to start another season. “We can’t wait to start again after the long summer break. All of our athletes love to exercise to gain more confidence for the many sports they compete in,” says Nina Gretzmacher head coach for Club Fit. “They all come with big smiles to the work out sessions. “Their positive attitude is contagious and all other volunteer coaches go home with a truly happy feeling” Special Olympics BC Vernon provides high-quality sports programs for individuals of all ages with intellectual disabilities. The society strives to enrich lives, and celebrates personal achievement through positive sport experiences. “Our biggest goal is to provide quality

All programs are very well established and cater to all level of abilities from Novice to National Champions and lead to competitions throughout the province.

Many people remember vacation Bible school as one of the highlights of childhood summers. “I have great memories of the picnics, the games outside, of being with the other kids. It’s part of the summer routine,” said Joel Haberstock, program facilitator at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Vernon. “I moved here but I know there has been vacation Bible school at the church for many years and many people in the area must have fond memories of it.” This year’s vacation Bible school with the theme, Sky: Everything is Possible with God, takes place Aug. 13-17. The two sessions, one for pre-schoolers

and one for Kindergarten to Grade 5, run from 9 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the church. There will be games, crafts, including airplane construction, “wild blue” Bible adventures and lots of music, with each child getting a CD of the music to take home at the end. “Chatter the chipmunk will be back, he’s a character kids will remember from past years. They always enjoy Chatter,” said Haberstock. “This is open to the community and a great chance for kids to get active in a positive setting.” Pre-registration ($20 fee) is suggested. For more information and registration, call the church at 250-549-2244.

Kitten season is tough on adult cats Morning Star Staff

Every day, BC SPCA branch managers are faced with countless numbers of people looking for kittens; at the same time, branches across the province are overwhelmed with nearly 1,000 adult cats awaiting homes. That’s why the BC SPCA is highlighting the many benefits of adopting adult cats, especially during their annual summer influx of highly desired kittens. “We have so many wonderful cats who would make amazing companions in any loving home,”

says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA. “However, the sad reality is that cats are often overlooked in favour of kittens, and this is especially true during kitten season.” In animal welfare organizations, “kitten season” commonly refers to the huge increase of surrendered and abandoned kittens that begins in May and continues throughout the fall. While many kittens are quickly scooped up by adopters, adult cats experience a longer stay at shelters. In fact, BC SPCA statistics indicate the average kitten has spent 31 days in care; the average adult cat, however, has remained 77 per cent longer. Of all felines available for adoption, the ratio of cats to kittens is 2:1. Chortyk doesn’t blame people for wanting a kitten, but says the SPCA wants to remind people about the joys of adopting an adult cat. “There are so many advantages to choosing a full-grown cat,” she says. “They’re more settled, they’re housetrained and their personalities are fully developed so you know exactly what you’re getting.” Chortyk also says adult cats enjoy your companionship and affection, but don’t demand the level of supervision of their younger counterparts. To view cats and all other animals available for adoption, visit The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization reliant on community support. Its mission is to prevent cruelty and to promote the welfare of animals through a wide range of services, including cruelty investigations, emergency rescue and treatment, sheltering and adoption of homeless and abused animals, humane education, advocacy, farm animal welfare, spay/neuter programs, and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.

New cookbook focuses on local harvest Morning Star Staff

The wet weather in June has not been helpful for farmers’ crops this summer. At D av i s o n Orchards, they’ve had to push back the harvest dates for some of their early produce. However, with summer finally here, they are starting to see the fresh fruits and vegetables make their way off the fields, and

into the homes of the Okanagan. One of the great joys of living in the Okanagan Valley is the access to a wide selection of locally grown fruits and vegetables. With the fresh produce comes Davison Orchards’ new cookbook, In Season: Make the Most of the Local Harvest. The revised edition of the farm’s cookbook features a large variety

of recipes showcasing cakes, slices, baked goods, salads, soups and so much more. “We wanted a creative outlet to share some of our recipes, as well as our friends’ recipes,” said Tamra Davison, marketing director for Davison Orchards. “We’ve made and loved a lot of these recipes for a really long time, and feel it’s wonderful to share them.”

The book features more than 100 recipes that highlight the abundance of fresh flavours found right here in the Okanagan Valley. A new focus of the cookbook is preserving the harvest, with a chart for easy storing, canning and freezing. “Tips and tricks that we use here at the farm will make sure your canned goods are delicious in the months to

come,” said Davison. “By using fresh local produce, you are able to capture and seal away the robust flavours of the Okanagan to savour during the cold winter months, or to give to friends to try.” But you don’t have to be into canning to enjoy the new cookbook as it offers a wide variety of recipes. From savoury to sweet, to gourmet and delectable, the cook-

Giving people the tools to improve their mental health Editor’s note: the following is from the Canadian Mental Health Association, B.C. Division (CMHA BC) Don’t worry; be happy. Easy to say, but many of us don’t find it easy to do. Mental illness is a serious health problem in Canada affecting relationships, education, productivity and overall quality of life. Approximately one in five Canadians, or 20 per cent of the population, will experience a mental illness during their lifetimes. Fortunately, a pioneering new course developed in the United Kingdom and backed by CMHA BC offers the promise for a better life for thousands of individuals living with depression and anxiety. Called Living Life to The Full, the course features eight “little books” that form the basis for eight consecutive 90-minute sessions or as the CMHA states: 12 Hours That Can Change Your Life. Bold words, but several independent evaluations show that most people who take the course report a real increase in their wellbeing. The booklets outline a plainly-worded set of tools that allow participants to face and overcome the problems that are bothering them. The tools are designed to help people experiencing depression or anxiety, but they go beyond that — they work for anyone seeking to worry less and live a happier life, starting now. Dr. Chris Williams, a psychiatrist and pro-

fessor at the University of Glasgow, developed the program, which is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Williams was in B.C. recently to help CMHA launch Living Life to the Full in Canada. He told a group of mental health professionals that the plain language of the course is the key to its success. “CBT has some great strategies for coping with mental health problems,” he said. “But when people aren’t able to cope, making them learn CBT language is not the way to help. “ The booklets have straightforward titles such as Why do I feel so Bad?, I’m Not Good Enough, How to Fix Almost Anything, and 10 Things You Can Do to Feel Happier Straight Away.

Williams designed the courses to be delivered by certified trainers. And if some participants need more help than the course can provide, the facilitator can refer them to the appropriate service providers. At the heart of Living Life to the Full is the conviction that ordinary people can learn how to take ownership of their mental health by using the tools outlined in the books to feel better. For example, book number three, Why does everything always go wrong? introduces participants to the Amazing Bad Thought Busting Program. “Bad thoughts love attention,” said Williams. “They’re like bullies, and the one thing that works on a bully is to stand up to

it. Don’t be bullied. If you’re having trouble with a bad thought, think what the person who loves you most in the world would say to you right now. They’d disagree with the bad thought. They’d remind you that you’re not rubbish, or stupid, or bound to fail. Trust these positive things and let them help get rid of the bad thoughts.” This plainly-worded advice that breaks big problems into manageable small steps is the hallmark of the program. CMHA BC has adapted Living Life to the Full to the diverse needs of today’s British Columbia, translating the program into Cantonese, and training Ismaili facilitators who ran the program in their own mosque to enthusi-

astic participation. For more information about Living Life to the Full, see www.

Improvements to the RDSP, the Grant and the Bond The Government of Canada has introduced new measures to the RDSP, the grant and the bond that provide more flexibility to Canadians with disabilities and their families when saving for the future. If you or a loved one currently has an RDSP or are thinking about opening a RDSP, this is important news for you: ♦ As of January 2011, you can claim unused grant and bond entitlements from the past 10 years (starting from 2008, the year RDSPs became available). This applies to new and existing plans. If you have a child or grandchild with a disability, this is important news for you: ♦ As of July 2011, parents or grandparents are able to arrange for some or all of their retirement savings to be transferred, tax-free, to the RDSP of their financially dependent child or grandchild when they pass away. Money paid out of an RDSP will not affect a person’s eligibility for federal benefits, such as the Canada Child Tax Benefit, the Goods and Services Tax credit, Old Age Security or Employment Insurance benefits. In addition, RDSPs will have little or no impact on provincial and territorial social assistance payments. For further details, contact your provincial or territorial government. For more information on the RDSP, grant and bond, including a list of participating financial organizations, please visit the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada Web site at or call 1 800 O-Canada (1 800 6226232). For more information on opening an RDSP, visit Canada Revenue Agency’s website at or contact the agency at 1-800-959-8281. TTY users can call 1- 800-665-0354. ♦ There will also be an information session at Okanagan College on Thursday, August 9 at 2:00 pm. Register for free at 250-545-9292.

Mackie Lake house announces writers-in-residence Morning Star Staff

Poetry and prose are likely to pour out of Mackie Lake House this coming season with the announcement of two new writers for its Writer–in-Residence program. Fiction writer and sometimes playwright Terry Jordan and poet Gillian Wigmore have been named as recipients of this year’s fall and winter residencies. The writers will each spend two weeks at the historic house to work on their craft, all while making connections with English

and Creative Writing students enrolled at Okanagan College and local secondary school students. The program was established in 2003 as a partnership initiative between the Mackie Lake House Foundation and Okanagan College through the auspices of Kalamalka Press. “Over the years the Writer-in-Residence program has become a vital organ in the college’s full-bodied commitment to the future of Canadian literature,” said Kevin McPherson, Kalamalka Press editor.

“The writers who come here are tremendously generous with both our students and the general public in sharing their knowledge, their craft and their passion.” Jordan, who will be taking up the September residency, is an awardwinning fiction writer, essayist and dramatist whose stage plays have been produced across the country. His book of stories It’s a Hard Cow won a Saskatchewan Book Award and was nominated for the Commonwealth Book Prize.

Wigmore will be arriving in January. The Prince George author has written two books of poems, including soft geography (2007), which received the 2008 ReLit Award. She’s also been short-listed for many awards including the Dorothy Livesay BC Book Prize for Poetry Over the years, Mackie Lake House has welcomed numerous writers through its doors including Dr. Ronald Ayling, Dennis Cooley, David Pitt-Brooke and Christine McPhee, Robert Kroetsch, Dawne McCance, Gary

Arts VPAG welcomes youth ambassador Morning Star Staff

After patiently waiting to hear a reply from the Young Canada Works program, the Vernon Public Art Gallery finally received notice that the gallery was granted funding for one seasonal position. “ A n d thank goodness, as the work load is considerable over the summer with two Kirsten Barkved of the biggest gallery events: Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts and Riot on the Roof taking place in July and August each year,” said marketing and programming coordinator Kelly MacIntosh. VPAG welcomes Kirsten Barkved, fourth year UBCO student enrolled in the creative writing program and women’s studies. Having lived in Kelowna and Vancouver in the recent past, and now calling Vernon home, Barkved will contribute her talent and experience from living in the Okanagan and Lower Mainland to this summer’s events. “She comes from a family of visual artists and it only makes sense that she chooses to contribute her creativity to the community through arts

and culture, whether it be creative writing, performing arts or visual arts,” said MacIntosh. Her role at the gallery will be Youth Ambassador and organizer of the 2012 Riot on the Roof, and her primary role includes soliciting and scheduling musicians, visual and performing artists, and fashion/hair/ makeup designers for the event. “Her enthusiasm, creative energy and connection with a youthful audience will no doubt make this the best Riot on the Roof event yet,” said MacIntosh. A sample of Barkved’s artistic talent can be viewed in the Vancouverbased SubTerrain magazine. “I’m so excited for this summer. I came to the gallery as a little girl for weekend workshops. I remember making paper mache masks and collage art on picture frames — which still sit on my shelf in my bedroom — so it’s great to be here,” said Barkved. “I’m thrilled to be planning Riot on the Roof — the arts are incredibly crucial to the community, especially youth, to give them the opportunity to be a part of something innovative, something out of the ordinary. “Last year’s Riot on the Roof event had so much success and creativity, and I hope to bring even more to it in our fourth run of the event.” Riot on the Roof takes place Aug. 25 on the top two floors of the Vernon Parkade. For details, call 250-545-3173.

Rarearth has gone back to earth Morning Star Staff

The Rarearth Music Fest began as a vision where people were invited to share their mandate to develop community spirit, raise funds for community projects, support local first with musicians, artisans and food vendors, invite stellar musicians from around the world, provide opportunities for the artistic development of local talent and provide mentorship programs and workshops for youth. Another important aspect of the festival was to work toward sustainability and implementing a green theme. That vision mushroomed and became a reality drawing like-minded individuals, large corporations, small businesses and government. “We made Vernon history by walking

together on an uphill journey to make it all happen and to all those that gave 100 per cent in support, I thank you, we at Rarearth thank you,” said Kath Raeber, owner/operator and organizer of the festival. “But I’m not quite finished yet.” Raeber is teaming up with her daughter, Kiley Routley, owner of Back to Earth Enviro Products in Coldstream. The two have spearheaded the Back to Earth Community Harvest Fest slated for Aug. 24 and 25 at Lavington Park. The event includes a Fun Kidz Zone, vendors, Suds n’ Ciders and free sustainable workshops. The Friday evening runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and there is no charge to attend and hear the musical entertainment Two Step Closer, Little Isabel, and

Capsule Comments with

Kath and the Tomkats Saturday’s fun runs 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and entry fee is just $5 plus a nonperishable item for the food bank. The live entertainment runs all day and includes performances from Our Kids Have Talent: Megan Lauridsen, Bjorn Kriel, Olivia Penalva, Better Than Average, A m i s t a d , G a l l o n’s Corner, Beamer Wigley,

and Jesse Mast. The entertainment continues with Earth Sisters – Drumming for the Earth, Sister B & the Boyz, 4th Divide, WindFall, Solara and headliner the Jo Burt Experience. With a professional pianist for a father and a professional dancer for a mother, it was a “given” that Jo Burt would embrace show business with his upbringing in

such a theatrical and musical family. He was seven when he first saw Adam Faith and the The Roulettes perform live, and in 1961, Burt’s rock and roll bug was born. In 2006, he was approached to play a regular gig at renowned jazz live music venue, The Bull’s Head, in Barnes. Embracing Burt’s developing style — mixing rock and spaced-out folk-esque

tunes — The Bull broke from their 25-year tradition to entice Burt with free reign over the musical direction, and The Jo Burt Experience was born. Developing his music in public continues to be, in Burt’s own words “a cathartic experience” for him. He continues to electrify his audience with the mixture of honesty, intensity and humour that he brings

to each performance. The Jo Burt Experience will be performing Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Back to Earth Community Harvest Fest. Tickets at the gate are $5 and a non-perishable food item. Contact Kath or Kiley at 250-550-6789 or for more information. Jo Burt will also be doing a gig at the Hub Aug. 11, tickets at the door.

TOM NOLAN Pharmacists are asked questions about new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The use of coconut oil to improve AD symptoms is one of those questions. So far the evidence is minimal but some people are willing to try it. Remember that one tablespoon of coconut oil contains 120 calories and 12 grams of saturated fat. It’s good to tell your doctor you are doing this. The anticoagulant, warfarin, (popularly known as a “blood thinner”) has many drug and food interactions. For example, leafy green vegetables contain vitamin K which can work against the warfarin. However, this doesn’t mean cutting these foods out of your diet totally. Just be consistent with the amount you consume daily and your warfarin dose will be adjusted accordingly. Bowel infections with C. difficile bacteria can be hard to treat and can be fatal. Instilling fecal material from a healthy donor via an enema can help normalize the bacterial flora in the bowel and lead to recovery. A synthetic form of fecal matter called RePOOPulate containing 33 strains of bacteria is being developed as a viable alternative to real fecal contents. When do you stop taking a prescription medication? It is always best to consult your doctor about whether it’s OK to discontinue a drug. It can be dangerous to stop “cold turkey”. Our pharmacists can supply some guidance on this subject. Our job as your pharmacist is to ensure you get the most out of your medication. Understanding your medication is the key. We can help you with this. Have Your Prescriptions Filled With Us

Valhalla soars onto agriculture scene GRAEME CORBETT Business Editor

The sky is the limit for Valhalla Environmental Consulting. The Vernon-based firm is adding to its list of consulting services with the addition of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Valhalla, a joint venture between John (Danger) Davies and Mark Piorecky, purchased the UAV glider to offer orchardists, vintners and other farmers a way of assessing the crop quality. Weighing less than a pound and with a wingspan of 80 centimetres, the glider houses two cameras. Images from a regular digital camera provide aerial photographs, mainly for mapping and referencing purposes. A second near-infrared camera is capable of producing NDVI (normalized difference vegetation index) images to help determine vegetation health and vigour. Davies says NDVI images have been used to fine-tune winery operations in larger hubs, and says they will prove particularly useful to the increasingly competitive wine industry in the Okanagan. “Precision viticulture has been going on in Australia and California for about a decade,” he said. “It’s just not something that’s being used up here. Even some basic aspects of GIS (geographic information systems) aren’t really being utilized. “You can show where the healthiest plants

are (with NDVI images). Wherever the best plants are, they’re going to produce the best grapes, and you can amalgamate those areas of the best grapes into one wine lot so you can produce the best wine, instead of throwing everything into a giant vat and having an average wine.” Davies says the UAV can also offer costsaving measures for agriculturalists. “In an agricultural application where a farmer has to use lots of water and fertilizer, we can show them where it’s doing best and they won’t need to put fertilizer on those areas. “We’re looking to make the farming more precise. Instead of just having a blanket treatment across the whole area, you can just go out and do what you need to do, where you need to do it. “We can look for pests and pathogens that are being expressed through poor plant vigour.” The UAV, which looks like a mini-stealth bomber, features autonomous flight capabilities, meaning it can fly upon a predetermined flight path, capture low-altitude images and return to the original takeoff point. All images are high resolution and are available shortly after landing. “You have control over while it’s up there, but if everything is going smoothly, you don’t need to do anything,” said Davies, who underwent classroom and field training with the manufacturer.

Marketing for success


ure, the summer season kept us waiting anxiously in June and for much of July. But it would seem now that the weather is (a bit) more certain, and regional, national, and international travelers are hitting the highways en route to their preferred summer destinations. For a small town with big charm, getting these large numbers of people off the highway and into town can be a challenge. Enderby & District has an advantage here (although some might call it a hindrance). Highway 97A cuts right through Enderby’s downtown Darren Robinson core, offering us the opportunity to get travelers’ attention as they enter into our domain. Of course, offering a visible and compelling reason to stop is the key ingredient. The steering committee for the Enderby & District


Vitalization Initiative, led by the Enderby & District Chamber of Commerce, recognized this opportunity, and through consultation with the Enderby Open Air Farmers Market, residents and merchants, the Cliff Avenue Pedestrian Market was born on July 6. The general consensus was that the old location was too far removed from the visibility of the highway, so it was decided to move the market to Cliff Avenue (very visible from the highway) and enhance the market’s offering to include Enderby’s unique retailers and restaurants. After four Fridays of layout adjustments and tweaks, the Cliff Avenue Pedestrian Market seems to have turned into the market of the summer in the region, drawing literally thousands of travelers off the highway and into Enderby. The market has also served as a way to re-energize Enderby, by becoming a social gathering place every Friday morning for residents, friends and relatives. It is quite amazing to see the market gain weekly momentum and bring a bigger pulse to Enderby, where the Okanagan meets the Shuswap. Check it out every Friday

Did you know you can view the


from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. all summer long. The steering committee is also happy to announce the completion of the Splatsin Traditional Dugout Canoe display which sits proudly in front of the visitors centre at Belvidere Park. The display has received much attention and is a testament to what can be achieved when we all work together. Lastly, in partnership with the Enderby & District Arts Council, the steering committee is supporting a call for local artists, working in all kinds of media, to attend an informal gathering on Wednesday, Aug. 22 at 7 p.m. at the chamber office (700 Railway Street) to discuss the possibility of an artists’ co-operative gallery in Enderby. This meeting will gauge the level of interest in the community for such a venture. For more information on the Cliff Avenue Pedestrian Market, visit, or call the chamber at (250) 838-6727.

Continued from B10 “The only time the propeller kicks in is when it needs to stabilize for a photo, or when it needs to keep the speed up.� Every time the glider goes up, Valhalla must first seek approval from Transport Canada in the form of a flight operators certificate. Davies foresees the UAV servicing several forestry applications, including fire guard and safety zone locations; forest health incidences and spatial extent in parks; and density of planted cut blocks. “Essentially, any use you would go to a Google Earth image for, we should be able to provide you with a much more detailed and up-to-date version,� said Davies.

BCGEU targets ministry offices with one-day strike offer could be withdrawn. The government describes its current negotiating mandate as “co-operative gains,� where pay increases must be financed by cost reductions in work arrangement. The BCGEU proposed increasing revenues by opening more government liquor stores on Sundays, and deploying deputy sheriffs for traffic enforcement. Union negotiators said both ideas were rejected.

Angus Reid poll finds open minds on pipelines TOM FLETCHER Black Press

Despite the media focus on spills and protests against new oil pipelines proposed for B.C., about half of respondents in a new poll are open to changing their minds based on economic or environmental factors. The Angus Reid survey of 804 B.C. residents found 35 per cent completely opposed to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway line from northern Alberta to port facilities at Kitimat. Only seven per cent indicated unqualified support for the line.

Another 27 per cent said they support the Enbridge proposal but could change their minds based on economic benefits or environmental protection. Similarly, 24 per cent were opposed but open to reconsidering based on economic or environmental concerns. The survey asked participants what they think of Premier Christy Clark’s five preconditions for provincial support of the Enbridge project. About a third said they would more likely back the project if Clark’s demand of “world leading” marine and land-based spill response was met, and a similar number said they would be

persuaded if the current federal environmental review supports it. Economic benefits to B.C. were cited as a factor in considering support by 32 per cent of respondents. NDP MLA Shane Simpson said the poll shows a clear trend to more opposition as people become more familiar with the pipeline issues. Firm opposition is five to one against the Enbridge proposal, and is strongest in northern B.C., he said. A proposal to twin the existing Kinder Morgan oil pipeline between Alberta and port facilities in Burnaby was supported

by 37 per cent of respondents and opposed by about half. While the NDP is campaigning against the Northern Gateway project, Simpson said the NDP won’t take a stand for or against the Kinder Morgan proposal until the company makes a formal application to Ottawa that details its plans. There were 32 tankers loaded with crude oil at Kinder Morgan’s Burnaby facilities last year, and 69 in 2010. A company official said an expanded pipeline would generate 25 to 30 tanker loads per month going out through Vancouver harbour.

Audit shakes up legislature TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. legislature’s internal finances are being dragged into the 21st century in response to a damning report from Auditor General John Doyle. MLAs will start releasing detailed expense reports and conducting Legislative Assembly Management Committee meetings in public starting this month, Speaker Bill Barisoff announced after a hastily arranged meeting to respond to the audit. Two new financial staff positions are being added to address what Doyle called “pervasive deficiencies” in basic financial accountability. The audit found that MLA credit card bills were being paid without receipts, and the legislative assembly hasn’t produced financial statements despite a 2007 recommendation from the previous auditor general. Legislature bank records didn’t correspond with actual bank balances, and records for the gift shop and dining room don’t allow for efficient management. Doyle said a future audit will look at the $119,000 annual allowance for MLA constituency offices, which Barisoff had asked to be exempted from the current examination. Transfer amounts and salary expenditures were verified, but other expense claims were not. Barisoff and Clerk of the Legislative Assembly Craig James emphasized that the audit did not find any misappropriation of funds. Doyle said he was unable to rule out fraud because the records aren’t complete enough to do so. Senior MLAs for both parties sit on the management committee, which administers an annual budget of $62 million to run the legislature chamber, law clerks, library, security and other departments. They include B.C. Liberal house leader Rich Coleman and caucus chair Gordon Hogg, as well as NDP house leader John Horgan and caucus chair Shane Simpson. Simpson said the problems go back many years, and he wants to make changes rather than point

fingers, which sparked a furious response from B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins. “B.C. Liberal and NDP MLAs are clearly circling the wagons, resisting calls for accountability with regards to their skyrocketing expenditures,” he said. Cummins called for Barisoff to resign for failing to get the management committee to intervene sooner, a suggestion Barisoff dismissed as a product of the summer “silly season” where trivial items make the news.

Heriot We regret to announce that Joan Ethelwyn Heriot died July 29th, 2012 in Polson Extended Care. Joan was born in the “new” Vernon Jubilee Hospital January 7, 1911. She is remember by her many friends, her cousins Jessie Pita, Ellen Hardiman and Laura Diamond in New Zealand, Basil & Sonia Grogono in N.S. and her Goddaughters, Sylvia Blackburne in Kelowna and Shane Haywood in Kamloops and Godson, Robert Brock in the U.K. Joan grew up on the Coldstream and at 17 went to Victoria College and then UBC. Her interest was Zoology and she was told there were no options in her field for women here in Canada so she continued her studies at the University of Liverpool and in 1936 received her Masters Degree in Zoology and spent her working life in England. During those years she did a lot of work related sketching — honing her artistic skills and at retirement and return to Vernon in 1966 delighted in a second career as a pastel artist. She decided someone should paint the valley, and it should be her, and she did. Joan had a wicked sense of humor, a lethal intellect and enjoyed everyone and everything and lived her life to the fullest everyday. Good bye Joan from all your many friends and thanks for a wonderful, inspiring and never boring friendship. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Joan’s memory to Hospice House or Charity of choice. Joan’s Funeral will be held Aug. 24, 2012, 2pm at All Saints Anglican Church, 3205-27th St., in Vernon, Arrangements entrusted to Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155

Scott Brandon May 31, 1982 July 26, 2012

Through the process, with many layers of letting go and saying goodbye we have been reminded of what an incredibly important person Scott has been in so many lives. After the sadness and the rain comes the sunshine and the understanding of the message Scott has left with us. We have to let the rivers of sadness Áow back to the sea, so a space is once again created for joy to bubble up from inside us. In time we will again feel the joy and zest for life that Scott lived and would have wanted for all those he loved. A Celebration of Life will be held in Vancouver, BC, August 7, 2012 at 2PM at the UBC Boathouse. An informal gathering of friends will be held in Vernon, BC at a later date. In lieu of Áowers, donations may be made to the funding_opps_leukemia.html Although very short, Scott’s life was lived to the fullest. His bright light will shine forever through all those who knew and loved him.
