Lightning struck down near Hartnell Road, causing a fire that crews were back up extinguishing Tuesday. A lightning strike from more than a week ago also had firefighters busy on Saturday. Lightning struck down off of Aspen Road in the BX July 27, and festered in the ground until resurfacing over the weekend. “Lightning will go straight down into the roots,” explains Wacey. “It sat down on the ground for

An WMB initial attack crew and forest officer were also in the Enderby/Mabel Lake road area Tuesday on a spot-sized

lightning fire. Lumby firefighters were also busy dousing a small brush fire caused by the lightning. The entire Kamloops fire zone is in a moderate to high fire danger rating. “With the continued hot and dry weather, it is expected this will climb to high and extreme by the week’s end,” said Michaela Swan, Fire Information Officer with the Kamloops Fire Centre. The public is asked to be vigilant with the use of open fire, with

There were 18 abandoned campfires in the Vernon fire zone over the long weekend.

A storm caused havoc Monday night, knocking power out for nearly 6,000 Vernon, Coldstream and Spallumcheen homes. Trees blew down over power lines, some catching fire, and lightning even sparked a fire in the BX. While BC Hydro restored power to the majority of residents Monday night, some were still in the dark Tuesday morning. Approximately 271 customers living in and around Pleasant Valley Road (between 46th and 43rd avenues) were expected to have their power restored by noon Tuesday. Crews closed off the section of road to clean up the damage from a large pine tree that came crashing down across the road, next to the cemetery. Tara-lynn Manke and her daughter Elizabeth were at the beach when the storm rolled in and they got a call that their home was narrowly missed by a power pole that the fallen tree took out. “One of the workers told us: ‘that pole almost went into your place,’” said Manke, who lives in the Vernon Springs townhouses. Thankfully no homes were damaged, but phone and cable lines were strewn across the front of houses and over cars along Pleasant Valley Road. The wind storm put another nearly 6,000 residents in the BX, East Hill, Coldstream and surrounding areas out of power. “Hydro crews were quite busy,” said BX-Swan Lake fire chief Bill Wacey, whose fire department also had a busy night manning trees on fire over power lines until Hydro crews could arrive. “Everybody was busy. “We had seven call outs since Saturday morning between lightning and trees over wires.” An aspen tree caught fire after it came down across a power line on L&A Road. A similar situation took place on Francis Street. Fire crews were also busy trying to locate and extinguish lightning-

Christopher Richardson (above) helps his dad Scott, an Okanagan College chemistry professor, make ice cream using liquid nitrogen while Keir Cross, five, (from left), James Richardson, six, and Dylan Peters, six, watch during the Scotia Bank Secret Formulas Camp at the Okanagan Science Centre Thursday.

Charges have now been laid against a second person in the recent robberies at Vernon financial institutions that Vernon RCMP have been actively investigating. Kristina Elizabeth Marie Bannick, 30, of Vernon, has been charged with two counts of armed robbery in connection with incidents at the VantageOne Credit Union and Bank of Montreal. Bannick was released from custody and will make her first court appearance Thursday. The co-accused in this case, Michael Lawrence Schoenknecht, 30, of Vernon, has been charged with three counts of armed robbery in connection with incidents at VantageOne, Bank of Montreal and HSBC. Schoenknecht is remanded in custody and is slated to make another court appearance today. “Police doing follow-up into the investigation, and speaking with the first suspect, led to the second suspect being charged,� said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. The three robberies occurred over a seven-month period, and police told media they believed the same person was responsible for all three robberies. Shortly after releasing surveillance photos from all three institutions of a male suspect, and asking the public for help, a man turned himself into RCMP.

Kevin Pidduck (from left), Marissa Bejer, Colton Archambault, Steve Farrington and Donna Foubert, all of Cloverdale Paint, show their support for Joe Roberts (far right) during a stop on Roberts’ practice journey from Calgary to Vancouver. Roberts plans on pushing a cart across Canada next year as part of the Push For Change campaign.

Nationwide cart push on tap ANDRE LODDER Morning Star Staff

Being homeless and pushing a shopping cart up and down East Hastings in Vancouver is never easy. But that’s where Joe Roberts was in 1989. After cleaning up, going to school and becoming a successful businessman, Roberts should have no reason for pushing a cart ever again. Yet that’s exactly what he’s planning on doing next May. However, rather than taking his cart up and down East Hastings, Roberts will be trekking across the country to help prevent atrisk youth from pushing the cart like he did in ‘89. Roberts and his cart recently stopped at Cloverdale Paint in Vernon as part of a trial run from Calgary to Vancouver that will hopefully work out the kinks and promote the journey. According to Kevin Pidduck, the regional manager at Cloverdale Paint, they chose to support the cause because it fits in directly with the company’s values. “We’re a family owned business, being a family-based and people-based company, and this cause is about people,” said Pidduck. “This is something we thought fit well with who we are and who we stand for.” The support from Cloverdale is felt by Roberts and his crew,

and they know it’s not only about the money. “It’s not just the gift of treasure it’s the time and people. They share the possibility with us and get it at a high level inside the company,” said Roberts. Roberts hopes to arrive in Vancouver to complete the practice run by the end of August, but the big trek is set to launch from St. John’s, Newfoundland on May 1 of next year. It’s not the first time the trek has been done, many people have tried it including Rick Hansen and Terry Fox, some of the Roberts inspiration. However, Roberts and his partners were looking for a different method, something Roberts can relate to. “No one’s ever pushed a shopping cart across the country,” said Roberts. The idea stemmed from Roberts past, a past that he hopes young kids won’t have to endure. “We believe in the brilliance and the possibilities with kids at-risk. We believe it because I was one of those kids that used to live under a bridge. “I managed to get my life together, go to college, and within 10 years go from the kid pushing the shopping cart to being on the cover of Maclean’s magazine,” said Roberts. A year after some Olympic athletes will be finished their marathons, Roberts will be walk-

ing his own marathons, only he’ll be doing them for days on end. He hopes to average 150200 kilometres per week, and Roberts knows it will be tough, but he also knows he has the motivation, a different kind of motivation than those competing in the Olympics. Something that even a 45-year-old nonathlete can tap into. “There’s an amazing thing that you begin to tap into, and that’s purpose. If you got purpose and you know why you’re doing something, then that’s connected to the big picture,” said Roberts. For Roberts, helping and supporting at-risk youth is just as important as walking into a business meeting and doing well. “I can go and speak to a thousand business guys, no problem, go in crush it and get paid well. I go for free and talk to a group of high school kids and I’m able to connect with them on a deeper level than their parents, teachers, councillors and spiritual leaders, because I’ve been there and I understand where they’re at,” said Roberts. “Having realized that, I don’t want to let that perish, I want to milk that, and that’s really what the Push for Change is about.” For more information on Roberts and his journey, visit www.thepushforchange.com.

Beacon guides rescue crew to injured hiker ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

A spot beacon helped an experienced hiker from difficulty near Cherryville on the weekend. The 52-year-old Okanagan man had been hiking in the Twin Lakes area east of Cherryville Sunday and had been sending messages through the beacon to his wife saying he was having a great time. Shortly after noon, the man fell and badly twisted his ankle, so he hit the beacon’s panic button, which

set off a long but successful rescue attempt. “We weren’t notified about the man until about 4 p.m. Sunday by the RCMP,” said Leigh Pearson, search manager with Vernon Search and Rescue. Attempts to retrieve the hiker using an RCMP helicopter were unsuccessful due to the thin air and the high temperatures, which prevents the RCMP chopper from lifting off. Vernon Search and Rescue then sent a crew in by foot to tend to the

Program seeks volunteers to help with complaints Morning Star Staff

Volunteers are needed to assist with an ongoing traffic issue. The Vernon – North Okanagan RCMP Safe Communities Unit has been fielding complaints regarding speeding. “Complaints mainly come from residents in Coldstream, Armstrong and Spallumcheen,” said Warren Smith, rural programs co-ordinator. “Otter Lake Road in Armstrong, Otter Lake Cross Road in Spallumcheen, Kalamalka Road and Middleton Way in Coldstream seem to be of the greatest concern.” In one recent highvisible Speed Watch session 75 per cent of the drivers were observed speeding over a one-hour peri-

od with four out of the 55 vehicles in excess of 20km/h or more over the posted speed limit of 50 km/h. When data was collected from the same location with the marked vehicle and Speed Reader Board out of view, the traffic speed increased to 95 per cent of the drivers speeding and 20 of 42 vehicles were in excessive 20km/h or more over the posted speed limit. Six of the vehicles were observed in excess of 30 km/h over the posted speed limit. “These stats show that the Speed Watch program does work and can be quite effective in educating drivers,” said Smith. “North Okanagan residences have the right to be upset with the speeds that drivers are doing. Drivers need

In addition to the education and reminder that is provided to the driver the Speed Watch program enables the tracking of statistics which benefits the general public, the RCMP, local municipal and district governments, and ICBC. “Although we

Pipeline posturing no help

T

he B.C. Liberal government is taking its new hard-line approach to federal environmental hearings on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in September. Environment Minister Terry Lake has filed the B.C. government’s notice to cross-examine Enbridge, one of the world’s biggest pipeline operators. Lake outlined the “tough questions” B.C. representatives will ask about spill response capacity on land and sea, tanker escort tugboats, pipe wall thickness, Tom Fletcher and Enbridge’s sluggish response to a pipeline rupture in Michigan. That’s all fine, and to be expected after Premier Christy Clark’s high-profile confrontation with Alberta Premier Alison Redford going into the recent premiers’ meeting in Halifax. Clark’s demands for “world-leading” safety and spill response, as well as meeting the constitutional obligation to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along the route, are mostly a statement of the obvious. Her call for a “fair share” of proceeds from exported oil to reflect B.C.’s risk has been assaulted from all sides. Pipeline opponents seized on Clark’s suggestion that a major oil spill might be tolerable if there was enough money in it for B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix picked up the theme as he conducted his own belated tour of the proposed route to reiterate his opposition. There had been earlier hints from Alberta that B.C. might need further rewards for the risk. But when Clark made the “fair share” demand public, Redford was moved to channel Margaret Thatcher, declaring: “The Premier of Alberta is not going to blink on royalties.” The lady’s not for blinking, but neither is B.C.’s Iron Snowbird, as Preston Manning dubbed Clark this spring. All this political theatre doesn’t amount to much. I’ll stand by my January prediction that the Enbridge proposal is unlikely to proceed,

mainly due to the tangled state of aboriginal claims. Wealthy U.S. foundations that view the B.C. North Coast as their 500-year eco-experiment will be happy to help fund a decade of legal challenges, while continuing the media-spinning and protest support they are doing now. Even if some way can be found to levy a B.C. tax on revenues from the Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. For one thing, it would confer an advantage to the Trans-Mountain pipeline that has been shipping Alberta oil to Burnaby and the U.S. for more than 60 years. The competing expansion proposal by TransMountain’s current owner, Kinder Morgan, shows the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new pipeline built to the highest standards ever would be too dangerous, while a 60-year-old pipeline is acceptable? Protesters have an easy target in Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy. Tankers have made that trip safely nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet for near-daily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the antipipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming.

Unless you’ve been totally ignoring the Olympics, you know Canada’s women’s soccer team lost 4-3 in extra time – mere minutes away from going to penalty kicks – to its closest, fiercest rival, the United States. You know Canada was going up against the team ranked No. 1 in the world, a country that has won the last two Olympic women’s soccer gold medals, and hasn’t lost to Canada since 2001, a span of 43 games. It was a game Canada wasn’t supposed to keep close, let alone lead three times. Christine Sinclair – who is always compared as the Wayne Gretzky of Canadian women’s soccer – scored three times and Canada was 10 minutes away from surely it’s biggest win in national team history, and a spot in the gold medal match against the reigning World Cup holders, Japan. But a controversial delay of game penalty called by the Norwegian referee against Canadian keeper Erin McLeod, followed by an even more controversial hand ball call against defender Marie Eve Nault in the box on the ensuring free kick, led to the U.S. scoring the tying goal on a penalty kick. Canadians from Vernon to St. John’s, Nfld., were livid over the calls. The players were stunned. The coaches were shocked. The ref’s calls and the final result aside, Monday’s match will likely set off a boom for women’s soccer in this country. It was a classic game, one of the most entertaining matches of all time. And that boom could grow bigger if Canada wins the bronze medal Thursday. A result this inspiring, hardworking group of athletes so richly deserves.

A

n open letter to my MLA Eric Foster and Minister responsible Rich Coleman. I have been following the various news articles in the paper, and clips on TV regarding the Liberal government's proposed selling off of the BC Liquor Distribution Branch. I have read articles in The Morning Star where Mr. Foster supports his government's decision to privatize and as late as yesterday another article protesting the sale. If you will bear with me, I would like to compare the government to a business, where, I as a shareholder (a taxpayer) have an investment and thus should have a say prior to the selling of this very profitable holding. I quote the LDB distribution and retail system contributed a net $4.3 billion to our government coffers in the last five years, a pretty sizable contribution in my mind. I have heard no business case from you my representative to educate this taxpayer to why this is a sound business venture. This makes me nervous as I have never NO CHANGES As if the Colorado theatre shooting wasn’t shocking enough, even more shocking is to realize that since the shooting at Columbine High School (plus other locations including Canada) nothing has changed. Despite Michael Moore’s film about the ease with which guns are obtained, politicians still argue that nothing would improve if gun sales were banned. And the Harper government’s elimination of the long gun registry is simply more of the same. Arguments rage over what causes the violence, yet the topic of purchasing guns and bullets is carefully avoided. Well-stocked gun shops appear to sell lethallooking weapons, and no doubt they are in business because the purchases are legal. The number of deaths by shooting has increased, and the sad truth is (and I quote): “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got.” Politicians argue that nothing

seen an elected official with a strong financial plan not want to share the value of said strategy with taxpayers and how much the province will financially through increased revenues following the sale. So, I must question, where is the busi-

can be done. But doing nothing, standing by and wringing our hands, has never been a useful option. In legal terms this is “wilful neglect”. If we’re not part of the solution we’re part of the problem. Jim Elderton COLUMN RIGHT ON Congratulations to Richard Rolke for his recent column, “Falkland deserves better,” pointing out Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes’ disinterest in the removal of Falkland from the new North Okanagan-Shuswap riding under proposed federal redistribution boundaries. It’s clear from Mayes’ comments that Falkland’s fate doesn’t interest him. He’s happy to ignore the long-standing commercial, employment, financial, professional service and historical ties that bind Falkland and Vernon. If the residents of Falkland share little community of interest with the folks in Princeton and Summerland and would be forced

ness plan and why has this not been shared with us? If you want public support, please show the taxpayers how this plan will increase income to the taxpayers over the existing system? This decision is significant in my mind

to travel to West Kelowna to meet with their new Central OkanaganCoquihalla Member of Parliament, Colin Mayes is okay with that. “We have to carve up ridings somehow,” he says blandly. But we shouldn’t be surprised that Mayes finds Falkland’s concerns boring. He seems to find the whole matter of meeting with constituents and hearing about their issues boring. Just last year, challenged during an election all-candidates meeting in Vernon about his unavailability to residents of the riding, Mayes said, “If you can’t see me, it’s obvious, the job is 132 days in Ottawa.” Clearly, he doesn’t get it. Mr. Mayes, the job is not “132 days in Ottawa,” it’s 365 days a year of sensitivity to the needs of your constituents and action on their behalf. I think we can all understand how dreary must be the life of any backbench supporter of the “Harper Government.” It must, indeed, be boring to

and has long-term impacts on our province's finances and possibly significant social impacts. Please, before you move further in the process, be respectful of taxpayers and put in place some form of public consultation at the earliest possible time. I have heard repeatedly that we as a province must be fiscally responsible and we do not have monies to support financial demands and interests, i.e. example of late from teachers. Well, I as a taxpayer do not wish to risk losing that $4.3 billion in the future as it pays for a lot of our children's education, health care and other critical services us the taxpayers want you as our representatives to manage wisely and in our best interest. I will continue to follow the news and sincerely hope you take some timely actions that will address the above concerns and demonstrate this is a well thought out strategy we will all benefit from and not a simple result of insider political lobbying as suggested in other news articles. E. Klassen

be only a small cog in the Harper propaganda machine, representing not the people of this constituency but, instead, the interests of Steven Harper’s distorted version of conservatism. If Colin Mayes is bored with his role as Member of Parliament, he needs either to quit or wake up and get on with the tasks he was elected to carry out. Retiring on the job is not an option. Roy A. Derrick ENOUGH ALREADY A roar approaches, getting louder. How much more can we take? This letter should take up a small space, which would be a lot quieter than our little city is. While you attempt to control the population, viz. chain saws, how about the ear-splitting and bone-shaking antics of certain motorcycles at all hours? Ours is peace, theirs is noise. Love your neighbours – put a muffler on it. Besides, the motor will last a lot longer that way. P. Drought

Artist’s installation begins with Z Headbones welcomes the Okanagan’s own Frank Zappa of the art world Morning Star Staff

Some call him the Frank Zappa of the visual arts world. Like the late composer/guitarist/ alt-rock pioneer, Byron Johnston has made visual and aural soundscapes that appeal to all the senses. Johnston’s unique sculptural installations have been seen, heard, and felt in galleries all over the Okanagan and internationally, and his choice of materials is often from sources that people wouldn’t associate with the making of art, said Julie Oakes, co-owner/artist of Vernon’s Headbones Gallery, which is about to open Johnston’s exhibition, It Begins with a Zee, at its space on Old Kamloops Road. “Johnston has more in common with The Mothers of Invention than his California leanings,” said Oakes, referring to Zappa’s former band as well as where Johnston went to study art. “Just as Frank Zappa took the definition of music to a new level and turned the ideas of what constituted music topsy-turvy, so Johnston turns around our idea of what makes up visual art. “Zappa’s musical creations rose above the pop song and ended up being praised by serious music

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Kelowna-based artist and UBC Okanagan fine arts professor Byron Johnston is installing his latest creations at Headbones Gallery in Vernon. The exhibition, It Begins with a Zee, opens on Saturday. critics throughout the world. Johnston as well –– without forfeiting invention, curiosity or plain, old fun –– pulls up what could be termed ordinary, daily materials into the realm of fine arts with such assurance that the acceptance of his unique and inventive art is impossible to contest. Yet above and beyond the marvel of his daring, he keeps a firm hold on the object as high art.”

Headbones first hosted an exhibition by Johnston in 1995, back when the gallery was situated at the corner of 30th Avenue and 30th Street in downtown Vernon. The show was a duel exhibition, with artist Richard Suarez, entitled Windows and Passages. “Johnston installed a number of metal cased windows on the walls of the gallery with different coloured blinds in them,” remem-

bers Oakes. “They could be opened and closed, raised and lowered to create a different framed picture upon the wall. Many of Johnston’s works have this aspect of participation built into them.” At the Vernon Public Art Gallery last year, Johnston created an installation that involved walking through a defined space. “During the walk, the space was changed physically because

the floor covering was trampled to pieces. The space also changed temporarily as the musical instrument at the heart of the installation could be played so that sound offset the impression,” said Oakes. Johnston, who received his master’s of fine art at the University of California, has been a professor of sculpture in the University of British Columbia Okanagan’s creative studies department for many years. He has inspired many students –– not only through his own work, but also within his teaching practice –– who have gone on to create works that expand our concept of fine arts, said Oakes. For the Headbones exhibition, Johnston will be mounting pieces that include such diverse elements as an antique canoe, a chair and green apples. There will also be sound elements, movable parts, and a large outdoor piece, said Oakes. The gallery is also officially launching its new sculpture garden, an on-going installation of sculptural works by the likes of Doug Alcock, Carolina Sanchez de Bustamente, Sandra DeVries, Jock Hildebrand, Angelika Jaeger, Byron Johnston, Reg Kienast, Geert Maas, David Montpetite, Julie Oakes, Bruce Taji, and Deborah Wilson. An opening reception for It Begins with a Zee, with Johnston in attendance, and the sculpture garden takes place on Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. Headbones is located at 6700 Old Kamloops Rd.

The Stenzel twins, Anabel and Isabel, breathe life in the documentary film, The Power of Two, about their battle with cystic fibrosis and their miraculous survival thanks to double lung transplants.

Sisters’ transplant story told in inspirational film Submitted to The Morning Star

The Vernon Film Society is pleased to sponsor a special presentation, The Power of Two, showing at the Vernon Town Cinema on Monday. All proceeds will go to the Canadian Transplant Association. Inspired by their 2007 memoir, The Power of Two offers an intimate portrayal of the bond between halfJapanese twin sisters Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, their battle with the fatal genetic disease cystic fibrosis, and their miraculous survival through double lung transplants. Defying all odds, Ana and Isa have emerged as authors, athletes, and global advocates for organ donation, and their connection to the cystic fibrosis and transplant communities provides rare insight into the struggles – and overlooked joys – of chronic illness. The twins’ receiving new lungs would have been unlikely in their mother’s native country, Japan, where organ donation rates are strikingly low. At the crux of a rising movement to change laws and stigmas,

Ana and Isa embark on a tour of Japan to inspire change in the hearts and minds of a culture resistant to transplantation. Featuring archival footage and probing expert interviews, this poignant directorial debut of Academy Award nominated Marc Smolowitz presents a multi-faceted portrayal of a society at a tipping point around this triumph of modern medicine. Back in the U.S., the twins thrive, rejoicing in their ability to breathe with healthy lungs, sharing their story, mentoring others on the same path, and experiencing life milestones. Evocative without being sentimental, The Power of Two reveals the twins not as heroines but as authentic women who share their fears about mortality and inspire us to make a difference. The Power of Two will be shown at the Town Cinema Monday at 5:45 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. (Note time change.) Tickets are available at the door and one week ahead at the theatre and the Bean Scene for $7.

Volunteers make time to help centre CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Andy Brodie looks at his volunteer work this way: “It’s 40 minutes out of my day and it makes the week for her.” He drives a participant in one of the Family Resource Centre’s seniors’ social programs to and from the meeting, an event she and others like her who have no transportation could not attend otherwise. Volunteer driving is just one of the centre’s programs, as well as the board of directors, that relies on volunteers. “Without the volunteers, we would have to drastically reduce what we can offer and the need is getting greater and greater,” said executive director Jan Schulz. “The economy plays a role and there are the stresses of modern-day life. Many people can’t afford to pay for private counseling but we can help people deal with many issues.” There are two programs with a sliding fee scale and the remainder of the programs, including parent and family education, are free to participants. There may be a small fee for groups. The board of directors oversees the centre’s operations. “We represent the stakeholders, just like in any corporation. Here, the stakeholders are the public and the government,” said Paul Filippi, an engineer who has been a board member for 12 years and served on a number of other boards in the community. “I think the centre fills a need and provides a valuable service and I am going to be here for as long as I can be useful. We meet once a month and there is some committee work but it’s not a big time commitment, maybe four to five hours a month.” Filippi recruited Deanna Jinjoe, whose background is in insurance, four years ago at a Rotary Club meeting. “I knew that the Family Resource Centre did counseling and that it was something I wanted to know more about and support. Sometimes we have staff members come to the meetings and tell us more about the programs, which is very interesting. I think there are times in every life when people have to reach out for help and that’s why the centre is here. It’s very rewarding to be a part of this,” she said. The centre is looking for volunteers for the board of directors, as well as for the community support volunteers, senior support volunteers and volunteer drivers programs. Joy (community support volunteers do not use their last names with clients) has just finished the training session and has started to see clients, as well as co-facilitating one of the support groups. “We see people about a variety of issues. Relationships probably tops the list, but we are here for just about anything that could be troubling people and we make referrals if necessary,” she said. “I found the training to be very interesting and it prepared me well. People come for help when they are prepared to make some changes and what we can do is help them gain clarity about what they want to do.” She also makes call-backs to see how

Family Resource Centre volunteer Carol Treller, left, receives a volunteer appreciation award from centre executive director Jan Schulz.

“I think the (Family Resource) centre fills a need and provides a valuable service and I am going to be here for as long as I can be useful. — Paul Filippi people are doing after they have had the support sessions and is pleased to hear a lot of positive feedback. The community support volunteers do not offer solutions but help people with resources and finding their own strengths and ways to deal with things. “The program training does a great job of preparing you and there is on-going mentoring from the professional counselors at the centre so you are not left on your own. My work is flexible so I can fit in the sessions, which are usually an hour long. It is a large commitment but it is something that is needed in the community,” said Jason, who has been a volunteer for two years. The next community support volunteer training starts Oct. 2 with evening sessions every Tuesday and the first Thursday of each month. There is a break for Christmas and then the sessions continue until April. The training costs $125 to cover the cost of materials. It is important to register early as there is an interview process to help potential volunteers decide if the program is right for them. Margie Bagg and Jack Bewley have just graduated from the spring training session for the Senior Support Volunteer program. “I see my client once a week for two

to three hours. Clients and volunteers are matched up so that they have something in common. We go out together or just visit. She is a joy, a total joy. I would recommend this program to anyone who would like an enjoyable way to give back to the community,” said Bagg. Bewley also has a new client. “I like the way this is set up so that there is a support system to take care of other issues so I can focus on being a friend. We go out for coffee, or maybe shopping once a week for a couple of hours. I know he really appreciates it. The training was great. I was amazed by how much I learned from it,” he said. Family Resource Centre coordinator of volunteer services, Karen Swales, said the volunteer visits help the clients stay positive and active socially involved. “All of the volunteers mean so much to our programs,” she said. The next program for senior support volunteers takes place Wednesday and Thursday mornings for eight weeks starting Oct. 3. The volunteer drivers do not have to take the training program but attend an interview and orientation session. There is a mileage payment for the volunteer drivers. There is always a need for more drivers, especially for relief or short-notice drivers so the regular volunteers can have time for holidays. These drivers may be called only once every few months for one trip or for a couple of weeks while someone is away. “I was new to the community threeand-a-half years ago and was looking for a way to help. I dropped into the centre and found this. It has worked out really well,” said Brodie. The cut-off date for application for volunteer positions, including board members, is Sept. 5. For more information call Swales at 250-545-3390 or see www.vernonfrc.ca.

So many ways to enjoy corn

I

’ve had my first feast of local corn on the cob this week and the flavour was amazing –– so fresh, tender, and delicious. Whether it’s grilled, steamed, boiled, on the cob or off the cob, cooked in the husk or peeled, fresh corn is one of the most versatile vegetables there is. Corn can be eaten on the cob with butter and a dash of salt perhaps, or cut off, eaten as is, or added to other

roasted vegetables as a side dish. Fresh corn is delicious in salsas, chutneys, or in a never ending variety of salads, chowders, chilies, casseroles, soups, biscuits, muffins, and even cakes. One of the nicest ways to cook a pot full of corn is by steaming it and I’ve included a recipe below for that, as apparently the majority of folks out there seem to boil the heck out

of it. The second recipe is a delicious salad that is sure to become a family favourite. Head to the farmers’ markets or to the fruit stands as local and Armstrong corn is now available. Perfect Steamed Corn on the Cob 12 ears corn, husked 2 tablespoons salt Two inches water in large pot Husk corn. Set aside. Put two inches of water in the bottom

minutes. Place red and yellow bell pepper on the grill and roast until the skins are blistered and lightly charred, turning often, about 15 minutes. Remove corn and bell peppers and let cool. Cut the kernels from the cobs and place into a large bowl. Peel skins from bell peppers, seed, and cut the peppers into 1-inch pieces; mix peppers and corn together. Lightly toss with heirloom tomatoes, red onion, and basil. Cover and refrigerate until serving time. Just before serving, mix in the salad greens and drizzle salad with 2 tablespoons olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Lightly toss to coat with dressing and season with salt and black pepper.

s I write this column, it is 39C in the carport in the shade. Some of my plants look like they will not survive and I know how they feel. I try to be up by 5 a.m. to walk the dog and then the watering of plants starts. Tom does the front beds and the banks and I do the back. It is time consuming as we water by hand. The rain water is just about gone and I reserve the last for my potted plants. I have found new culprits in the garden this year. I knew it was not the work of earwigs or slugs but some of my leaves and stems were damaged specially the horseradish. The guilty ones were snails. All the ground cover I had on the bank was the perfect spot for them. When I removed it to clean some of Jocelyne Sewell the overgrown spots, I found lots of them from very small with soft shell to very large ones. We have been eating fresh tomatoes (Latah) since July 18. Last year I had a lot of bottom rot on the early part of the season. This year, I put about a quarter cup of crushed egg shells and a tablespoon of organic fertilizer in each hole. I have not seen any rot yet despite the rainy days of June. We lost some of the cherries this year. The Kootenay Cover we used to prevent the cherry fly to lay eggs also trapped some of the moisture because of the wet June. Some of the clusters didn’t get enough air circulation to dry properly. On the other hand, without the cover, the birds would have picked half of them anyway and they would have been full of worms. Powdery mildew: Disease fungi are

A GARDENER’S DIARY

microscopic plants that take nourishment from the plants on which they live. In other words, they are parasites. Fungal diseases exhibit a number of distinctive symptoms, often indicated by their names. Downy mildew and powdery mildew create pale patches on the leaves and stems of the plants. Fungal disease tends to spread over the entire plant somewhat slowly, occurring over weeks rather than days. However, this does not mean you should wait to confirm that you have a fungal problem, because organic fungicides are not very effective in controlling a disease if it is well established in the plant. Fungicides are much less effective once a disease has become well established, so for best results apply them early in the season (kind of late now). Researchers found that baking soda controls powdery mildew and other mildews when sprayed on plants at weekly intervals at a concentration of one level teaspoonful per two quarts water. Not only did the soda prevent fungal spores from germinating and stop the development of the disease, but it even appeared to help the plants repair fungus-damaged tissue. Garlic’s antiseptic properties make it an effective control for mildews and other fungi. Apply it as a spray. To prepare a solution, chop up enough garlic cloves to fill 1/2 cup (500ml). Mix the garlic with 1 pint (500ml) water and leave it to steep for a few minutes; then strain out the chopped cloves. Another recipe calls for pureed several garlic cloves with a little water in a blender. Add the pungent mixture to a gallon of water. Make sure you strain the solution very well or you will clog your sprayer. Garlic spray is also a popular organic pesticide. A more natural application is to plant garlic, onions, or chives around your garden.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There is a strong chance that you’ll get an opportunity to vindicate yourself to a person you unwittingly offended in the past. When you see the opening, make your move. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You’re likely to be much better at managing the affairs of another than you’ll be at handling your own. This is especially true if your problem is of a financial nature. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Certain people with whom you’ll be involved could be extremely helpful in providing some beneficial information. It might even cause you to reverse one of your positions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) A condition that has been adversely affecting your career and/or finances is about to take a turn that will allow you to finally make a very advantageous adjustment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Knowledge and experience can be your best allies. If you are stymied by something, unlock a door to the past and search for a similar situation to guide you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Sitting down with a good friend whom you trust would be an extremely beneficial thing to do. Valuable ideas could be garnered from a frank discussion. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Gossip you’ve heard concerning a good friend will be either verified

or disproved through conversations with others. Fortunately, you’ll know the truth when you hear it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) While you’re in the mood, reorganize your affairs in ways that will make it easier for you to overcome certain obstacles that have been problems for far too long. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The secret to success is already interwoven within your philosophy of life when you want the best for others as well as yourself, you’ll come out ahead. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) By monitoring events, you should quickly learn that something you’ve long wanted to change could be facilitated through a third party. Do it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) In a situation regarding which both you and your mate share the same hopes and desires, success could be probable. Pull together until you achieve exactly what you want.

High-tech Growth in Okanagan Kelowna might seem like an odd place to launch a new online gaming website for North America. But don’t under-estimate the influence of the Okanagan lifestyle, combined with the global approach behind Internet business ventures today. “There are five of us who started this company and have dedicated our lives to building this company, and we all live here,” said Duane Lockwood, the president and chief financial officer for Hoopla.com. “For me I was with a financial services company here for many years and we had decided this is where we wanted to live.” “The questions will become whether or not we need to locate a head office in the U.S. or Great Britain as we morph and grow, but at this stage we are all quite comfortable to have our head office in Kelowna.” Lockwood said since the concept behind hoopla.com began to take shape more than two years ago, even he has been surprised at the growth of Kelowna’s version of the Silicon Valley technology landscape. “I think Kelowna is a bit of a technology hotspot right now.

Proud strategic, charitable, technological and media partners. For more information on charitable partners, please visit www.hoopla.com

When you look at the success of Club Penguin and others, and we’ve just gotten involved with Accelerate Okanagan and see the things happening there, this is a good place for us to be.” “And to be able to work where you live is really great.” From their Manhattan Drive office location, Lockwood and his fellow investors are excited about the Aug. 4 official launch of the hoopla.com gamesite.

High-tech Growth in Okanagan Kelowna might seem like an odd place to launch a new online gaming website for North America. But don’t under-estimate the influence of the Okanagan lifestyle, combined with the global approach behind Internet business ventures today. “There are five of us who started this company and have dedicated our lives to building this company, and we all live here,” said Duane Lockwood, the president and chief financial officer for Hoopla.com. “For me I was with a financial services company here for many years and we had decided this is where we wanted to live.” “The questions will become whether or not we need to locate a head office in the U.S. or Great Britain as we morph and grow, but at this stage we are all quite comfortable to have our head office in Kelowna.” Lockwood said since the concept behind hoopla.com began to take shape more than two years ago, even he has been surprised at the growth of Kelowna’s version of the Silicon Valley technology landscape. “I think Kelowna is a bit of a technology hotspot right now.

Proud strategic, charitable, technological and media partners. For more information on charitable partners, please visit www.hoopla.com

When you look at the success of Club Penguin and others, and we’ve just gotten involved with Accelerate Okanagan and see the things happening there, this is a good place for us to be.” “And to be able to work where you live is really great.” From their Manhattan Drive office location, Lockwood and his fellow investors are excited about the Aug. 4 official launch of the hoopla.com gamesite.

GRAEME CORBETT/MORNING STAR

JR Redmond, a former NFL running back, rounds up his athletes for a post-workout pep talk at his Just Run Pro Training session Friday at Polson Park.

NFL champ motivates youngsters GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

JR Redmond has thrived at every level of football he has played. From earning first-team, all-state honours with his hometown Carson, Calif. high school Colts, to playing in a Rose Bowl and earning Heisman Trophy consideration as a tailback with the Arizona State Sun Devils, to catching three first-down passes on the final drive that won Tom Brady’s New England Patriots Super Bowl XXVI, he has done it all. When his six-year NFL career ended in 2005, Redmond took everything that made him successful, namely his supreme athleticism, and translated it into Just Run Pro Training. The 34-year-old was in Vernon last weekend delivering the program, hosted by Vernon Minor Football. The first thing the kids noticed was there wasn’t a single football to be found on the field at Polson Park. Instead, Redmond focussed specifically on teaching agility, power and speed, using a series of challenging drills that incorporate bungee cords, hurdles, ladders and cones. Football is his passion, but Redmond says the fundamen-

LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR

Carter Olsen-Stiles (above, front) and Justin Vicklund sweat it out in a ladder drill under a hot Okanagan sun. tals he offers are applicable to pretty much any sport that relies in athleticism. “Sports in itself is played in 360 degrees,” said Redmond, who ranks fifth in yardage in Arizona State history. “If you can do it forward, you should be able to do it backwards. If you can go right, you should be able to go left. “You have to prepare that way. You can’t have a dominant side. You become a better athlete, you become a better player, if you have the mental stability to retain the information.”

GRAEME CORBETT/MORNING STAR

Tye Kitzman, a Fulton student, gets low for a bungee drill. The other thing that quickly became apparent to the youngsters was Redmond wasn’t there to coddle them. He used a balance of tough love and motivation to encourage them through three full hours of intense morning workouts under a scorching Okanagan sun.

Ogopogos run over Spirit 2-0 Morning Star Staff

Yogi Kongsdorf recorded his third straight shutout as the Big O Tire/Turn-Key Ogopogos stuffed the Rutland Spirit 2-0 Monday night at Parkinson Rec Field. The 10-6 Ogopogos are officially for real as they contend for a top-four playoff spot in the Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League. The Ogopogos started with a lot of contolled short passing and a few through balls to their capable forwards, Mark Wasylyk, returning from holidays, and Roland Riedstra. However, the dangerous duo kept missing on their chances. Back to duty after a work venture in Dawson Creek, midfielder Parm Kler put an amazing spinning corner to the failing tips of the Rutland keeper’s fingers into the net. Kler also just missed the top corners on a few blasts from outside the 18. Rutland (1-14-1) had their chances here and there but Kongsdorf, who has been taking Danish goalkeeping courses online this summer, was sharp when called upon. The Ogopogos’ second goal came on a nice cross from Henry Czerwonka in front to a hungry Rob Ross, who nodded the ball into the corner. It was the second straight game that Ross rushed in from the back line for a goal. Ross showed a little more jump than anyone else on both teams and took the Pizza Hut Man of the Match. Big O goes up against the Silver Stars in a derby match Monday at Marshall #3.

Budweiser Man of the Match Al Murphy pulled the early hat trick as the Humpbacks (12-4) built up a 5-0 halftime lead. Chris Reeves scored twice in the first half before being shut down by central fullback Tom Ouchi, while Zane Klym added a single. Defenders Rob Hulstein and Bryan Williamson were monsters on the Camels’ back line. Ouchi took the Okanagan Fruit Growers Man of the Match for Bosman (4-12), who also got a stellar showing from defender Neil McPhee.

Athletes adapt to workload Continued from A24 “They didn’t realize there was going to be a lot of hard work involved, so the first day kind of blew their minds,” smiled the charismatic Redmond, whose cousin, Derrick Ward, just retired after eight seasons as an NFL running back. “Today they came out here and were a lot better. They understood the volume of work they had to do. “The thing they have to understand is your coach is not your parent; your coach is not your friend. But it’s somewhere in between a parent and a friend. “When it calls for me to be that authority figure because we’ve gotten a little too friendly out here, then I have to bark at them a little bit.” Tye Kitzman, who plays with the Vernon Bantam Wolverines, wasn’t sure what to expect. Yet despite all the hard work, he seemed to excel on Redmond’s program. “It’s a lot of work,” said Kitzman, a Fulton student. “I’ve never done this – it’s just basic funda-

mentals on running and how to run faster. “Bungee is fun, but really hard. The back pedalling – it’s hard on your legs.” Added Matthew Reich, a Grade 5 Silver Star Elementary student who will play this season with the Vernon Pee Wee Yellow Jackets: “It’s a lot of fun. I like the bungee and being out with the professionals. It’s really cool. “I don’t have very good footwork, and this is helping a lot.” Greg Ficht, team trainer for the Vernon Midget Magnums and equipment manager for Vernon Minor Football, invited Redmond to town when he learned he was already doing programs in Kelowna and Salmon Arm. “The kids absolutely seem to be enjoying this,” said Ficht. “He’s a football player, but these camps aren’t football specific; any athlete can come and gain something from this. “We’re excited to be hosting this and hopefully we can build it over the next few years.”

Lazar, a 6-foot, 190-pounder with the WHL champion Edmonton Oil Kings, was one of 13 forwards named Monday following Hockey Canada’s four-day selection camp at the MasterCard Centre in Toronto. The camp included daily practices and three Red-White intrasquad games. “Made Team Canada. It feels unreal!” wrote Lazar on his Facebook page. “Really pumped for the Ivan Hlinka over in Europe.” Said head coach Todd Gill (Cardinal, Ont./ Kingston, OHL): “It was a very competitive camp; we could have easily chosen all these players to play in the tournament. There is a lot of talent on the ice in this country, and we look forward to getting to Europe and continuing Canada’s great tradition at this event.” Canada has won the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament four consecutive years.

Manitoba takes U17 title Morning Star Staff

Team Manitoba only played .500 ball hockey in the round-robin, but they won when it mattered most at the Under 17 boys nationals last weekend at Wesbild Centre. After posting a 2-2 record in the four-team preliminary round, Manitoba doubled the B.C. Thunder 4-2 in the championship game Sunday afternoon. They advanced to the gold-medal game by outgunning the West Coast Wolverines 6-4 a day earlier. Christian Stockl powered the Manitoba offence in the final with a three-goal, oneassist performance. Teammate Kurt Keats chipped in with 1+2 in support of netminder

Erik Pion, who recorded 20 saves. Nick Gondos handled the scoring for the Lower Mainland-based Thunder. Netminder Jas Mahli made 17 stops. In Manitoba’s Saturday semifinal, Remi Laurencelle fired four goals and Stockl added 1+3 against the Wolverines. Jeremy Mager played set-up man with three helpers. Zach Ellis (1+2), Lucas Morrow, Bakashi Gill and Blake McCullogh provided the offence for the West Coast crew, while Keven Petruka kept his team competitive with a 29-save effort. Pion made 13 saves for the win. In the bronze-medal game, Bakashi and Ellis each collected a deuce as

the Wolverines stuffed Team Saskatchewan 5-1. Morrow, with a single, and Josh Bortignon, with three assists, added to the effort. Wade Brenner recorded 12 stops. S a s k a t c h e w a n’s Connor Navrot collected his team’s lone goal, and netminder Jeremy Heinrich posted 20 saves. The Thunder went 4-0 in preliminary play, posting identical 3-1 wins over Manitoba, a 3-2 decision over the Wolverines and a 7-3 thumping of Saskatchewan. West Coast went 2-2 and Saskatchewan went 0-4.

Coyotes extinct Morning Star Staff

The B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League has announced that the Okanagan College Coyotes have ceased operations. That leaves the BCIHL with six teams for the coming season. “Okanagan College was a valued and competitive member of the BCIHL and will be missed greatly,” said league president Kim Verigan, in a league statement. “They put forward a very competitive team right from their first season. It will be a big change for the league and it’s very unfortunate these things happen in the hockey business. It’s important to recognize the team management, especially general manager Kolby Barnstable and head coach Kim Barnstable, for their hard work and dedication over the past three seasons.” Said Thompson Rivers WolfPack GM Chris Hans: “I think Okanagan College’s decision to cease operation of their men’s hockey program is a reflection of the difficult, tenuous financial times collegiate athletics is experiencing in Canada at the present time. From our perspective, OC was our closest geographic opponent and was developing into one of our fiercest on-ice rivals.”

Bridge by Phillip Alder COMBINING THE TWO TO DUMP A LOSER Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel, a German poet and critic who died in 1829, said, “Combine the extremes, and you will have the true center.” We are looking at eliminating losers from declarer’s hand. Sometimes he can discard a loser. In other deals, he ruffs a loser on the board. But occasionally he must combine those two extremes, first discarding a loser from the board, then ruffing his hand’s loser on the board. Today’s deal gives an example of this two-step technique. South is in six spades. West leads the heart queen. How should

declarer proceed? In the auction, South’s first two bids showed a very strong hand with five-plus spades. North promised some values (usually 4 to 7 support points) with his three-spade raise. Four clubs and four hearts were control-bids (cue-bids) expressing interest in a slam. Then South cautiously used Blackwood before bidding six spades. Declarer has two handlosers: one heart and one diamond. If all goes well, he can first discard two hearts from the dummy on two high diamonds. Then he can ruff his third heart on the board. The play goes: heart queen to dummy’s ace,

one top trump from hand, diamond jack to West’s ace, heart nine to declarer’s king, second top trump, two winning diamonds (discarding dummy’s remaining hearts), heart ruff with the spade jack, club to the ace, a third top spade to draw the missing trump, and claim.

The BC SPCA is launching a new spay/neuter grant competition that will help communities across British Columbia address the tragedy of pet overpopulation. Through a $75,000 legacy from a compassionate BC SPCA donor who was concerned about the suffering of homeless cats, the SPCA will be distributing grants of $2,500, $5,000 and $7,500 to municipalities and First Nations communities to assist low-income cat owners and individuals and groups who care for free-roaming cats. The grants will be available to, and administered by, registered animal charities, municipalities, veterinarians, First Nations governments and First Nations tribal councils. “We are pleased to launch this initiative to help reduce cat overpopulation in B.C. communities,” said BC SPCA chief executive officer Craig Daniell. “Each year thousands of cats and kittens are dropped off at SPCA shelters or simply abandoned by their guardians in public areas. By providing communities with spay/neuter support we believe we can reduce the number of unwanted litters and help end the suffering of homeless cats.” To apply for a community spay/neuter grant, or for more information, visit spca.bc.ca/catgrant and download the application guide.

Payments Starting @ $170 bi-wkly O.A.C.

Along with warm summer nights come barbecues, campfires and fireworks. While the sonic-boom of pyrotechnics may be thrilling for us, it is not an enjoyable time for our furry friends. With summer now underway, the BC SPCA strongly recommends that pet guardians plan for the safety of their household animals during these fireworks festivities. All those weird, loud explosions and bright lights can be upsetting to your pet and can even lead to harm. “The roaring thunder of fireworks can cause animals to panic, putting both pets and people in danger,” said Lorie Chortyk, BC SPCA general manager of community relations. When dogs and cats are frightened they are more likely to run away from their homes, jump out of open windows or dart into traffic. Stressed pets can also behave out of character — even scratching or biting people, said Chortyk. The BC SPCA offers these summer fireworks safety tips: Keep pets inside An indoor pet is a happy pet on fireworks night. Muffle the noise and prevent animals from escaping by closing windows and drawing the curtains. Some pets do well in a separate room with the radio or television on to mask the sound of fireworks. Leave plenty of pet toys in the room so he doesn’t think he’s being isolated as a punishment. Identification Make sure your pet is wearing identification. Dogs and cats may try to run away if they feel threatened. Clear, current identification is your best chance to have them returned to you. Don’t console your anxious pet While it is natural to want to comfort your pet, it is better to use a bright, cheerful voice to send a message that things are fine. Avoid saying things like, “it’s OK” or “don’t be scared” in a soft or sympathetic voice. This only reinforces your pet’s fearful behaviour.

Zachary Murison, 13, started growing his hair out for cancer two-and-a-half years ago, after his former principal and some family members had cancer. While he thought it be a good thing to do and be easy, it was very difficult to put up with being laughed at and teased. Despite the many times he thought of giving up, he got it cut the first day of summer. Gabriella’s on 30th took off eight inches which will benefit a boy or girl after their cancer treatment.
