Fire sweeps up hills near The Rise RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Firefighters were left scrambling to contain a fast-moving blaze in Vernon’s Bella Vista area Tuesday. The first call came in just before 3 p.m. of a grass fire on the first switchback leading to The Rise. “The winds keeps gusting up and sending it (fire) in a different direction,” said Keith Green, Vernon fire chief, during an interview from the scene. “We’ve been chasing this thing. It came close to two houses but we had a bulldozer on scene and we built up a fire guard.” At about 4:45 p.m., two homes were evacuated. The fire covered grew to about 20 hectares. Crews from both the Vernon and Okanagan Landing fire halls were joined by 21 firefighters, four air tankers and two helicopters from the Ministry of Forests. “We sent whatever resources we can,” said Kayla Pepper, a ministry information officer. The BX-Swan Lake Fire Department was also called in to assist. A cause has not been determined but Pepper says ground conditions are dry. “The fire danger rating is high,” she said. See www.vernonmorningstar.com for a video from Tuesday’s fire.

Trail for Taylor serves as memorial for slain teen Some good is coming out of an Armstrong tragedy. The City of Armstrong, in partnership with the Van Diest family and the cooperation of Kelowna Pacific Railway, has announced the creation of the Taylor Jade Van Diest Memorial Trail. The pathway will be built in memory of 18-year-old Taylor Van Diest, who was murdered in the city Halloween night 2011. “The Van Diest family initiated discussions with Kelowna Pacific Railway to seek permission to build a walking path within the

of donated goods and services. “The project will be completed through the donation of materials and labour, and the family has been contacted by many willing to make it happen,” said Marie Van Diest, Taylor’s mother, whose brother, Paul Albert, will be the general contractor for the project. “We’re looking forward to all of the work and activities that will take place to see our vision realized. We’re very, very excited to see it come to fruition.” Added Albert: “We’ll follow through with this trail to make it really, really important for the community to see something

come out of this. We can’t hardly wait to get in.” The trail, upon completion, will be turned over to the city for ongoing maintenance. That also means the city has the ability to issue tax receipts for in-kind donations directly attributable to the building of the trail. The Van Diest family and the city acknowledged the railway’s donation of a five-year lease for the use of the railway right-ofway. Talks with the railway continue but the Van Diests hope to get started on building the trail as soon as possible.

Event tees up cancer centre work JENNIFER SMITH

while work is underway – first starting in the old ICU/cardiac care, then moving patients into that new area while the existing space is renovated. While work is underway, the organizing committee of the charity classic will already be prepping for next year’s event, in support of another to-be-determined need at the hospital. This year’s event was a resounding success, with 245 people taking in the gala Saturday evening on the driving range and another 132 golfers swinging in support of the cause Sunday. There was also moving words from Doreen Blackwood (a nurse in the cancer centre), Dr. Ed Hardy and Dr. Michael Humphreys about the needs of local cancer patients. Auctioneer Kevin Rothwell also helped raise $10,300 for the Cancer Centre patient comfort fund, which helps out cancer patients in a variety of ways, including covering the cost of very expensive anti-nausea drugs. Former LPGA pro A.J. Eathorne hosted the awards ceremony, announcing National Bank Financial as the 2012 Corporate Team.

Morning Star Staff

The community has aced efforts to enhance cancer care in the North Okanagan. Expansion of the McMurtryBaerg Cancer Centre is all set to begin, following the weekend’s Home Hardware Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation Charity Classic. Going into the golf and gala event at Predator Ridge, $80,000 was needed for the $500,000 expansion and renovation. Support and generosity was in full swing and the event successfully raised more than $126,000 – bringing an end to the cancer centre campaign. “We should be seeing (workers) in there almost as we speak,� said Sue Beaudry, director of development with the VJH Foundation. A consultation room (which is currently nonexistent), additional exam rooms and more space for chemotherapy stations (which will provide more privacy) will ensure the centre can adequately treat a growing number of cancer patients at the hospital. “They are now doing three or four times the number of patients they did then (in 1998 when

their 30s or 40s, the good news is that the outcomes are much better for many. “There’s a lot of people who are living longer,� said Beaudry, adding that the expansion will

provide longevity to the centre, which Vernon is lucky to have. “We are very fortunate for a community this size to have a cancer centre at home.� Cancer care will continue

Trap ban could catch on in Vernon RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The debate over hunting and trapping could reignite in Vernon. Council directed staff Monday to determine what actions could be taken to prohibit hunting and trapping within city limits. “My biggest concern is the safety of residents,� said Coun. Catherine Lord, who made the motion. The city was lobbied last year to ban trap-

ping of wildlife in Vernon. Ultimately, council decided that the matter was a provincial jurisdiction. Lord says the situation, though, has changed because she has received reports of bow hunting in the community. “That’s pretty scary,� she said, adding that the city may need to take action because there is limited enforcement from the provincial government. “There are 120 conservation officers in the

province and that’s not a lot to cover the whole province. Their workload is heavy enough.� She is also concerned about people trapping nuisance pets and wildlife and putting residents at risk. While he didn’t oppose the motion to investigate the matter further, Coun. Bob Spiers has some reservations about the city getting involved. “This is rehashing old ground but I’ll await the report,� he said.

Parting ways with the Okanagan Landing Fire Department has revealed deep political divisions. The Morning Star has learned that a recent Vernon council decision to not renew a fire service agreement with the Okanagan Landing Firefighters Association was not unanimous. In fact, the vote was 4-3. “We should have renegotiated the contract,” said Coun. Bob Spiers, adding that the Landing association provided an efficient level of service. “That was the best way to go. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” Besides Spiers, opposition came from Councillors Patrick Nicol and Mary-Jo O’Keefe. “They are treasured volunteers and I didn’t believe the process was as transparent as it

“I didn’t believe the process was as transparent as it could have been.” — Patrick Nicol could have been in their ability to react,” said Coun. Patrick Nicol. Council’s decision was made in private with Vernon Fire Department administration, and the Landing association was informed after. “They felt blind-sided,” said Nicol, adding that there have been efforts in recent years to bring the Landing hall under the leadership of the downtown hall. “Things were working fine until there was an attempt to put full-time (paid) firefight-

ers in that hall and this is a continuation of that debate.” But those council members who support not renewing the contract defend their actions. “With the level of training, we want it to be more uniform,” said Coun. Catherine Lord. “It makes sense to be part of our training group. The two have been butting heads and that can be a danger out there.” Coun. Brian Quiring says all firefighters should be administered the same no matter if

they are in the Landing or in the downtown hall. “We need them to be under the direction of the (Vernon) fire chief,” said Quiring. “The gap between them and us is too large with training and protocol. The chief didn’t even have a key to the hall.” All members of the Landing association have been invited to join the Vernon Volunteer Firefighters Association, which operates out of the downtown hall. The Landing association was formed in 1975 and it has provided a contract service to the city since Okanagan Landing joined Vernon in 1993. Okanagan Landing firefighters met with city administration Tuesday night to discuss the transition and the city’s plans. “They are asking questions and I hope they get open and honest answers,” said Nicol.

Enderby wants RCMP enforcement RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The pedal is being put to the metal and that has Enderby officials seeing red. City council voted Monday to write the RCMP and demand that speed enforcement be enhanced. “It boils down to what’s important to us in our community,” said Mayor Howie Cyr, a retired police officer. “If we have concerns, that should be the priority for them in our community.” According to Cyr, there have been

incidents of motorists exceeding posted speed limits. “On some streets, they roll right through,” he said. “We are getting complaints from residents and we see it ourselves. If there is no possibility of being checked or ticketed, they just carry on.” Cyr isn’t sure what current RCMP resources are in the community or what the response to council’s request will be, but he insists something needs to be done. Howie Cyr “We want them to start writing some tickets,” he said, adding that school speed numerous zones will be back in effect soon.

in possession of a bottle of bear spray, an extendable baton and a knife. The suspect was arrested for weapon offences. When they arrived at the Vernon RCMP detachment, a thorough search of the backpack revealed a fairly large amount of miscellaneous drugs including crack cocaine, meth, heroin, marijuana and some pills, along with $5,000 in cash. The items have been seized and the 27-yearold Vernon man – who Molendyk said was wellknown to police – was released from custody on a promise to appear in Vernon Provincial Court for drugs- and weapons-related offences at a later date. It appears no charges will be laid against the woman.

of life or injury,” said Pringle. Coldstream will be re-examining the issue and will also be looking at options for increased density in other areas of the community. Suites provide affordable housing in the community (as well as helping homeowners afford their own mortgages), but there are also many short-term rental units within the area. “We have to admit, we live in a very desirable area for tourists,” said Coun.

and it has typically been successful,” said Stamhius. One of the illegal suites on Sage Pointe Crescent has been shut down, while tenants in another suite have been given 30-day notice to vacate by their owners. Residents opposed to the suites have given Coldstream a list of other suites in the area and Pringle suggests that the district could be liable if they aren’t dealt with. “If there was a fire it is possible that the district could be responsible if there was a loss

Public involvement is still a key ingredient in Vernon’s financial plan. City council has endorsed a process for the 2013 budget, including public input sessions at the three planning meetings and a formal session prior to the document being adopted. What’s missing is an open house, which was held with the 2012 budget. “An open house wasn’t included because no members Kevin Bertles of the public showed up,” said Kevin Bertles, finance manager. That approach had support from Coun. MaryJo O’Keefe. “Having an open house was a tremendous amount of staff work (developing graphs and charts) and no one attended,” she said. “People who are interested have four other opportunities to provide input.”

Found moose hides linked to taxidermy ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

First thought to be those of another four-legged creature from nature, a pair of hides discovered near a popular Vernon hiking spot on the weekend are actually moose hides. Conservation officers were alerted at 3:15 p.m. Saturday to a report of two bear cubs in BX Park, near the upper parking lot at BX Falls, being shot, skinned and left in the park. The individual who reported the finding told officers the bears appeared to be similar to cubs that frequent the area. Officers investigated and discovered two hides approximately 50 feet from the washed-out BX Creek bridge on Tillicum Road. Sgt. Josh Lockwood told media Monday morning the hides belonged to bears. Later Monday, however, Lockwood said they were now looking at moose hides. “We brought them back, unrolled them and said, ‘okay, these are moose hides,’” said Lockwood. “The assumption by everyone is they were bears,

“It appears this is a dump site.” — Sgt. Josh Lockwood until we rolled it out and had a look at it.” The hides were determined by officers to have been salted and turned (meaning the lips and ears were turned inside out to put salt in, an occurrence during the tanning process), a professional process used in taxidermy. Lockwood said at this time officers can see nothing illegal in connection with the hides found. “It appears this is a dump site,” he said. “It appears someone was heading up the road to dump them, saw the bridge was washed out and the road was closed, and chucked them from the back of the vehicle.” The conservation office will continue to investigate where the hides came from, and if charges will be laid.

L

ooking for something to do this Saturday? How about heading over to the Greater Vernon Museum. A public open house runs from 1 to 4 p.m. and while the goal is to dispel the myth that history is boring, it’s also an opportune time to show residents the sad state of an agency charged with preserving our heritage for future generations. I have belaboured the point before, but seeing is actually believing. Conditions are cramped, to the point that the exhibit area is cluttered and narrow walking paths barely provide enough room for two people to Richard Rolke pass each other. And the situation is only getting worse as restoration of the century-old post office clock takes up a large chunk of real estate. The collection — because history never stops — keeps growing. Storage is absolutely overflowing, to the point that some items are in less than ideal surroundings. The lack of climate and light controls does little for the long-term integrity of artifacts. Many one-of-a-kind treasures never see the light of day, and that is disheartening given some of the dazzling items that should be on permanent display such as the personal effects of artist Sveva Caetani and her family. There is limited room for public education programs, which are increasingly in demand, and people can often be shoulder-to-shoulder as they spread out photos and documents from the archives. Forget about large exhibits stopping at the museum as there isn’t the room and national requirements demand climate control.

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

Now you may still insist you’re not into heritage and there’s no reason for you to drop by the museum. But remember that if you live in Vernon, Coldstream or the BX, you are a taxpayer. Through your hard-earned cash, the Regional District of North Okanagan provides the museum with annual operating grant of $180,034. On top of this, there is $89,829 for rent, insurance and maintenance. All rolled together, that’s $269,863 and you should be interested in how it is invested. Now all residents should make plans for the open house, but there’s a specific group that should be walking through the door and that’s the 16 politicians from Greater Vernon. After all, they are the ones who raise their hands for operating funds, and they even have to appoint individuals to the museum board under bylaw. But more importantly, it is this select group that will ultimately decide if the current challenges are to be addressed and if a new purpose-built museum is going to move ahead. Some of our elected officials are extremely familiar with the museum, while it’s likely some have never been there before. The open house is not only a chance for them to see the vast array of artifacts and exhibits, but you can guarantee curator Ron Candy will be willing to take them on a private tour behind the scenes of the storage areas. If residents and politicians alike head into the open house with an open mind, they will hopefully understand the need to double the size of the 13,000-square-foot facility. Obviously there will be a price tag involved — possibly as high as $5 million — but given the cultural, social and economic benefits that museums provide, it shouldn’t be considered a luxury any more than paved roads, sewer lines or sports fields.

It’s no surprise that ending a formal relationship with the Okanagan Landing Firefighters Association wasn’t unanimous among Vernon council. It is now known that the decision to bring all firefighting operations in the city under one administrative structure resulted in a 4-3 vote. However, what’s still undetermined is how this strategy will actually unfold, and it’s success or failure will depend on the 30 volunteers at the Okanagan Landing fire hall. There is the assumption that the Landing crew will automatically sign on as new members of the Vernon Volunteer Firefighters Association — which operates out of the downtown hall — and embrace the new model. But that may be a stretch for some who have been connected with the Landing hall for years and feel a sense of loyalty. For some, there may also be bitterness over how the process unfolded, particularly council making the decision behind closed doors and not giving them an opportunity to defend the status quo. The city claims amalgamation will lead to “standardized training and improved safety,” but some Landing firefighters will insist they were already doing that. There will be others, though, that will see the new model as an opportunity to develop a unified fire department and learn new training and operational techniques. For some, it may open the door to long-term careers. In all of the city statements, one key factor has been missing. What happens if a large number of Landing volunteers decide to retire instead of accepting city hall’s new relationship? How will the city provide critical emergency services if there is reduced manpower? Let’s hope there’s a plan B.

Hospital needs funding now

I

am a patient of Dr. Troy Schultz in Vernon. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2011. The care and support that I have received from Dr. Schultz and his staff have been exemplary. In fact, I have been very pleased with all of my care at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. I underwent a procedure called transurethral resection of a bladder tumour, whereby the cancerous bladder tissue was removed. I am presently undergoing immunotherapy on a weekly basis to kill the cancer cells. An integral part of my treatment is the surgical examination of the bladder every three months. These surgeries are critical to my care as they identify ay additional growths in the bladder and enable Dr. Schultz to take action immediately. Although the cancer diagnosis was difficult to accept, the greatest challenge with my condition is the anxiety of waiting to be scheduled for successive surgeries to monitor the progress of my disease. The timing of these procedures is paramount, as any additional growths must

FOOD FOR THOUGHT I have worked in the farm equipment industry for many years and recently was pulled over by the RCMP. I was towing a rather wide piece of farm equipment down the highway. I was told there were a number of complaints about me having to use two lanes if there was no shoulder to drive on. I was totally legal in what I was doing, but the RCMP had to follow up on the complaints. All this did was make me mad at the waste of my time more importantly the officer's time. I am positive it could have been put to better use. As most of you know, your food does not come from a grocery store, but merely sold from one. The farmers are just doing what is necessary to produce their crop and it does require some road travel to harvest or bring in crops. So next time you come up to

be removed immediately to prevent to quick progression of my disease. Once Dr. Schultz submits a request for operating room time, we have to wait for this time to be available. I know I am not Dr. Schultz's only patient requiring this surgery. I understand that he has just under 300 patients like me in his practice, and we are all left to wait for our allocated operating room time. The lack of OR time available to Dr.

Brent Hornby RULES OF THE ROAD I have some good friends whom are cyclists. One friend of mine in particular is very passionate about it. He would not fall into this category. However, I am disgusted by the actions of some of the cyclists out there. On any given day, you can see cyclists riding down sidewalks, blowing stop signs, coming up on the right side of a stopped vehicle when it needs to turn right, and charging right past or in front of pedestrians crossing on a crosswalk. These cyclists want respect? In the last two years, I have witnessed two separate incidents where a cyclist has rode right through a school bus stop zone. This is where the bus has

Schultz and his team and the continual cancellation of OR time is a grave concern and negatively impacts my health and that of other cancer patients. As resident of Vernon, I am very pleased with the opening of the tower at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. However, it is immensely frustrating to know that there are two acute care floors and operating rooms that are not finished and available for use. Following a public uproar, the govern-

stopped fully with stop sign out, red stop lights activated and kids exiting the bus. The first incident, last year on Husband Road, was particularly alarming because the cyclist rode up the left side of the bus from behind, blasting right past the driver's window. A pedestrian, especially a small one, can easily be injured by this action. It was inconsiderate and quite dangerous potentially. In a more recent situation, the school bus was stopped on Silver Star Road by Aspen Road. The stop sign was out, lights were flashing and the clearance arm was out once again. Kids were in front of the bus being met by their dad who was walking across the road toward them. A car, facing the bus, was stopped waiting for the crossing to be completed (when the bus driver would deactivate the crossing equipment) and a cyclist was coming up behind the car toward

the bus. The cyclist did not stop. He rode right between the dad and the kids. Again, this could have had very poor results had the kids and dad not stopped for him. When I was a kid learning to ride a bike, the understanding of the law was, that a bike is to be operated as a car is driven, and the cyclist was to pay attention to the traffic laws accordingly. Clearly by some of you, this is not being done. To you cyclists out there, whom we have built actual lanes for, who go on and on about vehicle operators not respecting you etc., well hey, like most roads, that's a twoway street. If you want respect out there, like everyone else, you need to earn it, right? Blowing stop signs, freaking out pedestrians and narrowly missing them when you are the one that is supposed to stop, is not the way to accomplish that. Rory White

ment has committed to completing and opening these floors and operating rooms. The timing of such, however, is not acceptable. It is imperative that the Liberal government allocate sufficient funding to the Interior Health Authority immediately to free up operating room time. Specifically, Dr. Schultz and his team are requiring additional cystoscopy time in order to be able to service their patients, improve patient quality of life and save lives. As a long-time resident of B.C., a taxpayer, and a supporter of the Liberals, I am appealing to them to address this critical matter and take action immediately, namely, increased funding to enable to opening and operation of operating room time at the Venon Jubilee Hospital, which will no doubt result in increased cystoscopy time for Dr. Schultz and his team. This will enable patients like myself to get the critical procedures required to halt the progression of their disease and save lives. Joseph Real Rousseau

A couple holding on to a sixmonth child in a pedal boat didn’t make it very far out into the water. Conservation officers working Kalamalka Lake saw the trio in their pedal boat were not wearing any lifejackets. “They didn’t have any on board,” said Sgt. Josh Lockwood of the conservation service, which assists RCMP out on the area’s lakes and rivers. “They didn’t get very far from shore before they were turned back.” Lockwood said boat activity on Kal Lake was very high, creating rough waters for such devices as a pedal boat. “It is very possible to get tossed and chucked into the water by an errant wave,” he said. “We want to remind the public that if you’re on a flotation device on a lake that you are navigating, you are required to

have life-jackets on that device,” said Lockwood, who also reminded standup paddle boarders that they, too, must have life-jackets on board. Two other things caught the eye of conservation officers on the weekend. Four boaters were ticketed for not having an operators card and several personal water craft (PWC) operators riding PWCs from a rental company were warned that the life-jackets they were wearing from the rental facility were not Transport Canada approved in that the jackets were torn and needed repairing. “If you rent from facilities, make sure the equipment you’re getting, because you are responsible for that, is Transport Canada approved,” said Lockwood. The investigation into that file has been turned over to Transport Canada in Kelowna, who will follow up with the unidentified rental agency.

Call of nature costly ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

It was an expensive bathroom break for a Vernon man, and a troubling break for his Shuswap friend. Vernon RCMP officers were in the parking lot of the Fruit Union Plaza A&W Saturday shortly before 3 a.m. when one of the officers noticed a man urinating on the back door of the

restaurant. The 27-year-old Vernon man was arrested for mischief and being drunk in a public place. “He was issued a municipal ticket that carries a fine of $200,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. While the officers were arresting the Vernon man, his 27

year-old friend from Blind Bay, near Sorrento, stepped in and started to argue with officers. “He refused to leave the area after repeated warnings by our officers, and he approached the arresting officers in a threatening manner,” said Molendyk. He was arrested for obstructing a peace officer, then resisted arrest by putting up a fight. Officers were able to wrestle the man to ground and get handcuffs on him. He was taken into custody. The suspect was released on a promise to appear in Vernon Provincial Court at a later date, and is expected to face charges of resisting arrest and obstruction.

Trail leads to art around Greater Vernon Artists open their homes, gardens and studios for inaugural Caetani Studio Art Trail Morning Star Staff

Whether driving, biking or walking, those taking the inaugural Caetani Artists Studio Trail are guaranteed to cool off with some cool art. Local artists across Greater Vernon will be opening their homes, gardens and studios for the trail, which will feature 17 artists showing and selling their works at six different locations on Saturday, from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Judy Katalinic, executive director of the Caetani Culture Centre, has spearheaded the event as an approach to building a broader studio art trail in Vernon to attract locals and tourists alike. “The Caetani centre is working together with our member artists to spread the word about our extraordinary local talent in Vernon and beyond,” she said. “Artist members who don’t have their own studios will be setting up on the Caetani grounds to create an art market on the trail.” Both new and returning artists to the area will be exhibiting and selling their work along the studio trail. Many of them have travelled and have lived abroad, and are now returning to the place they call home, said Katalinic. One of two stops on McKoryk Road, located in North BX, is the mother/daughter creative duo of Shelley and Leanne Cadden. Shelley Cadden is debuting her ornate silver garden chimes made from re-cycled items

(See www.leannarto.com for more info.) Printmaker and painter Christine Kashuba is also opening her studio next door at 7371 McKoryk Rd, Her work includes baseball prints on paper and screen-printed fibre art and her spacious studio overlooking Swan Lake is a must-see for art lovers and aficionados. Ed Goodon’s Metal Dream Design Studio,

located at 6346 Pleasant Valley Rd., is hosting four visiting artists. Painter Virginia May Brown, portrait painter Bruce Hale-Pearson and glass and metal artist Patricia Doyle will be sharing the gallery belonging to Edward and Debbie Goodon. Since their grand opening in 2010, the Goodons have created an ornamental ironwork garden of original and custom metal sculpture designs. (Visit www.metaldreamdesign.com.) Linda Wadley-Courtemanch has recently relocated to Vernon from Jasper, and is opening her Moods and Motions Art Studio at

1805-39th Ave. for the first time. Visitors can see her debut show of en plein air oil landscapes, capturing the Okanagan. Eight more local artists will be showcasing their work around the corner at the Caetani Cultural Centre, located at 3401 Pleasant Valley Rd. Studio artists include artist-in-residence James Postill, Ryan Robson, David Goodliffe and Christine Pilgrim. Participating member artists include potter Laurel Fredin, painter Robyn Soderberg, musician Daniel Stark and the latest Caetani resident artist, painter Melissa Dinwoodie. Another debut artist at the Caetani centre is musician and producer Darren Ketcheson, who will be giving a one-hour acoustic performance starting at 3 p.m. on the Caetani grounds. Music, face painting and refreshments will also provide fun for the kids and a relaxing atmosphere for visitors. The final stop on the trail is 907 Kalamalka Lake Rd., where Caetani artist members Daryl and Anna-Marie Carlyle create concrete art on site in their production area at Unique Garden Arts & Gifts. Their unique artwork, glassware, metalwork and creative advice will help anyone wanting to create a customized home, garden or business. “This is a great opportunity to view debuting artistic talent and fresh new faces on the Vernon art scene,” said Katalinic. “We hope to develop the trail and showcase many more art studios and galleries in the future, to create a new visitor attraction for Vernon and the area.” A map of the trail can be found at www. caetaniculturalcentre.org.

Monologues show a different side to women’s issue Morning Star Staff

“I have faith that a woman is capable of making the best choice about her own life, that she is wise and good and will do what’s best.” “I knew it was legal to get an abortion in Canada. My mistake was thinking it would be easy.” “I never wanted the abortion. I didn’t want the kid either. At some point, it’s gotta be either one or the other.” “I don’t think it’s wrong all the time, but I don’t think it’s right either. I think there is a price to pay for all the choices we make.” On Aug. 23, a local theatre company will begin a threeday run of the live theatrical production of The Abortion Monologues, written by Canadian author June Cawthorne. Presented by Jessika LaFramboise, general manager of theatre86, the monologues feature 23 women revealing the details of their lives, relationships and families as they tell the stories of their abortions.

“I saw it when it was first staged in Calgary around 2010,” said LaFramboise. “I had my young child at the time. When I got pregnant that was one of the options for me, but I decided to use my right to choose, and have my baby. Something hit me about these stories that related to what I was going through.” The Abortion Monologues exist in stark contrast to the real world in which women seldom publicly discuss this choice. The characters in this play face everyday hardship, financial crisis, relationship break down, illness, death, radical shifts in expectations, and the truth about themselves and their own deepest desires, said LaFramboise. “By taking a look at a controversial life-changing decision, The Abortion Monologues demonstrate how much gray area there is to what many people believe is a black-and-white issue,” she said, adding the play shows there are many valid reasons why a woman may decide to have an abortion. And as one in four pregnancies in Canada are terminated, it forces the audience to consider why this subject is so taboo.

“It’s a way to open up a discussion, not necessarily a debate, about what is a valid reason to get an abortion. Some people feel that abortion is bad unless the person is raped. This gives other reasons why women have gotten abortions,” said LaFramboise. A writer and teacher, Cawthorne was an instructor of women’s studies at Mount Royal College in Calgary until 2006, when she began writing full time. For the past two decades, she has volunteered with numerous non-profit organizations dedicated to supporting women, social justice and sexual health. During this time, she has been honoured to bear witness to many women’s struggles and triumphs, hear their stories and learn from their insights. The Abortion Monologues is Cawthorne’s second play. The Abortion Monologues will be presented at The Hub Arts Collective (2906 30th Ave., Vernon), on Aug. 23, 24, and 25 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available from Ticket Seller and at the door.

Polley directs sophomore feature

The Vernon Film Society is pleased to present Take This Waltz, showing at the Towne Cinema on Monday. Following the tremendous success of her directorial debut in Away From Her, Sarah Polley returns with her moving and highly personal film Take This Waltz. The film is a beautiful and poignant take on a young woman’s struggle to find happiness. Twenty eight-year-old Margot (Michelle Williams) is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a good-natured cookbook author. But when Margot meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), their mutual attraction is obvious and immediate. To make matters worse, Daniel lives across the street. Unable to resist, the couple begins to spend time together, attempting to restrain themselves from doing things they might regret. Torn between her love for her husband and lust for this passionate new neighbour, Margot finds herself at a crossroads as she struggles to choose between two different kinds of love. There are no easy answers, no heroes and no villains. Funny, bittersweet, and heart-wrenching, Take This Waltz is a moving journey of love, passion, and regret that is grounded in a struggle familiar to many of us and will speak to anyone who has

Canadian men and women may agree that August’s scorching temperatures have been too hot to handle, but a survey of moviegoers tell us they have very different ideas about how they’d like to spend these steamy days and nights. Asked by Cineplex Entertainment, which owns Vernon’s Galaxy Cinemas, to name the movie that best represents their ideal summer, 40 per cent of women chose the romance of Dirty Dancing. Men, on the other hand, favoured the debauchery of American Pie (26 per cent). “It’s hard to imagine two more starkly different visions for how to spend your summer,” said Pat Marshall, vice president, of communications and investor relations with Cineplex Entertainment. “It makes you wonder just how much our movie memories can tell us about what we want from life.” Other interesting findings:

Shane Philip brings his multi-instrumental kit to Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Thursday and Oyama’s Gatzke Orchards Friday. more of that mesmerizing sound that is powerful enough to fill a room with dancing fans and soulful enough to quiet a packed house. On Life Love Music, Philip hooked up once again with producer Joby Baker (Cowboy Junkies, Alex Cuba), who plays bass and drums on some of the album’s tracks. The album took eight days to record, which might sound quick, but considering The Baker Studios album took two days to complete, is actually akin to the pace in which Philip works. Philip plays live at Lorenzo’s Café, 901 Mabel Lake Rd., east of Enderby, Thursday. Doors open at 6 p.m. Concert starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. Call the café at 250-838-6700 to reserve. He also takes the stage at Gatzke Orchards, located on Highway 97N, in Oyama (midway between Kelowna and Vernon) Friday at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance at Gatzke’s or $15 at the door. The show is all ages.

An ancient tribal instrument from Northern Australia, the didgeridoo is considered the oldest wind instrument that exists today. The hypnotic, haunting sound it produces can induce listeners into a trance-like state and is even thought to have a special healing power. Harnessing this power to produce an irresistible fusion of reggae and funkinfluenced rhythm and song is multiinstrumentalist Shane Philip, who is in the Okanagan this week. “I just play what comes from my heart and soul,” said Philip. The Courtenay-based artist, who will play at Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Thursday night, and then will take the Big Blue Stage in Oyama at Gatzke Orchards Friday, is known worldwide for his dynamic didgeridooinfused music. Philip is a one-man force on stage. His feet wildly work his drum kit while he plays guitar, the aslatua, the djembe and, of course, his didgeridoos. Self-described as a singer/songwriter “first and foremost,” Philip uses his arsenal of instruments to bring his songs to life, and the effect is so cutting edge that some mistake it for electronic looping. “That’s the ultimate compliment for me,” he said. “I know people that like electronic music hear a little bit of that when I get the kick drum and high hat going, and the didge, but that’s as close as I get. “I’m doing it live off the floor so it’s completely 100 per cent organic.” A familiar face from performances at Vernon’s Komasket Music Festival, Philip has been touring the globe upon the release of his 2006 album Earthshake, which he followed with 2009’s Live at Baker Studios. His latest album, Life Love Music, is rich with vocals and features much

Hecho a Mano opens in Lake Country CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Mexico and the Okanagan have more connections than most people think. “The Mexican people have an unsung history in B.C. Many of the early pack train operators when the country was first being settled were Mexican. Now we have Mexican people coming to work in the fruit industry,” said Dan Bruce, curator of the Lake Country Museum, which has a show, Hecho a Mano: traditional handcrafts of Mexico, of pieces from 500 B.C. to the present. “We talked to Mexican people here and some were enthusiastic from the start and others joined later. We have done interviews with them and they were invited to the opening night. “A lot of people visit Mexico and appreciate its culture but don’t think that much about what Mexico has given us: chocolate, tomatoes, chili, may agricultural products.” The exhibit brings together items from the Kelowna Museum and private collections. The oldest is a small pottery head. There are also examples of traditional handicrafts in glass, textiles, ceramics, woodwork, metal and leather crafts. There are also copies of ancient codices from Madrid, few survived because they were written on paper and traditional costumes. Bruce, who has done ethnography/archeology field work in Mexico, finds one of the most intriguing exhibits is a reproduction of a head of Mayan King Pacal (b. March 26, 603 A.D.) who ruled in Palenque from July 26, 616 to Aug. 31, 683. The dates are exact since Mayan texts have

Calling all Kin This basket is known generically as tenate in Spanish. Formerly, all were woven from palm. While baskets woven of palm can still be found, those most frequently seen are made of synthetic materials, like this one. recently been translated. “You can imagine the king at his pyramid temple wearing quetzal feathers, jade, turquoise and jaguar skins. In 1952, Mexican archeologists discovered his tomb, the first royal burial discovered and so much was learned. With that and the translations, the Mayans stepped out of pre-history and became living beings.” He finds the contemporary crafts just as interesting and said Mexicans are serious about preserving their skills and history.

Lake Country Museum curator Dan Bruce with a copy of a head of seventh century Mayan King Pacal, one of the many historical and contemporary Mexican exhibits at the Hecho a Mano show at the museum Aug. 18 through 29. “One of the remarkable things in the exhibit is a woman’s hair tie about an inch wide and four-feet long with intricate woven designs that are perfect on both sides. It was made by a 16-year-old girl,” he said. “The museum volunteers have worked very hard on this and we are proud of it. The museum is there to preserve local history and tell that story but it is also there to expand people’s horizons.” The exhibition also includes photographs featuring the por-

traits and stories of Mexican migrant workers in the community. During this special exhibition the museum will be open extended hours: Aug.18 to Sept. 3, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week. Sept. 5 through Sept. 29, the opening hours will 1 to 4 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. The Lake Country Museum is located at 11255 Okanagan Centre Road West, Lake Country.

IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURE Are loose dentures a problem for you? If your dentures shift while chewing or talking and you are tired of those embarrasing moments, consider dental implants for stabilization. Imagine your denture snapping into place, feeling solid and secure. Often a new denture is not necessary. Your existing denture can be made to fit your new implants.

Zucchini won’t go to waste with these recipes

T

oday would be a good day to be deemed “sneak the zucchini to your neighbour’s front door day” because as anyone who’s grown zucchini knows, by mid-August it’s producing faster than any one family can keep up with eating it. All squash are native to the Americas but zucchini was developed in Italy somewhere near Milan over a century ago and is used world-wide in thousands of different ways. Cathi Litzenberger The flowers are edible and are used in soups, salads, and many casserole dishes, particularly in Europe. The fruit is eaten raw, broiled, baked, boiled, stir fried, stuffed with fillings, in casseroles, salads, bread, cakes, cookies, etc. And yes, I did say fruit. Zucchini is the fruit of the flower but we treat and eat it as a vegetable. Six-to-eight-inch zucchini is favoured by most people but it can grow as long as a metre and 10-to-12-inches wide, which is very seedy and tough. Today I have a recipe for stuffed zucchini cups made using slices of larger slices of zucchini. It’s a wonderful thing to make when the zucchini gets out of control. The second recipe is a salad you can adjust to your own taste by increasing or decreasing the amount of lemon used and varying the herbs. This time I used dill and chives for the herbs, but

KITCHEN WIT & WISDOM

a favourite is with the alternate. Enjoy! Meat, Tomato, and Mozzarella Stuffed Zucchini Cups 2 large zucchini or yellow squash, about 12 inches long (3-inches across) 2 tsp. + 2 tsp. olive oil (may need more, depending on your pan) 1/2 cup finely chopped onion 1 green pepper, finely chopped 2 tbsp. finely minced fresh garlic 1 lb. ground beef (10% fat or less) 12 oz. ground turkey (10% fat or less) (or use any combination of ground meat you’d like) 1-2 tsp. Spike seasoning (optional but recommended) 2 cups flavourful tomato-basil pasta sauce 2 cups low-fat mozzarella or other mild white cheese (I used low-fat blend of six cheeses called Italian blend.) Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Chop onion and green pepper. Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a non-stick pan, then saute onion and pepper for 3-4 minutes, until just starting to soften. Add minced garlic and saute about 1 minute more, being careful not to brown the garlic. Remove the onion, pepper, and garlic mixture to a bowl. Add 2 tsp. more olive oil to the pan. Crumble in the ground beef and ground turkey, season with Spike seasoning, and cook over medium heat until the meat is well browned. Tilt pan to see if there is any extra fat, and remove with a spoon if there is, then stir cooked vegetables and garlic back into the meat. Add tomato sauce and simmer until the mixture has thickened

and liquid has cooked off, about 10 minutes, then turn off heat. While meat cools, cut zucchini into 2 inch thick slices, discarding ends. Use a sharp spoon or melon baller to hollow out a cup in each zucchini slice, leaving just over 1/4 inch of zucchini flesh. Be careful not to get too close to the skin or the cups will leak liquid when they cook. Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray and stand up zucchini cups, open end up. Stir 1 1/2 cups grated cheese into the cooled meat mixture (it doesn’t need to be completely cool), then spoon the meat-cheese mixture into zucchini cups, pressing down with the spoon and mounding it up a little over the top of the zucchini. Bake zucchini cups for 20 minutes, then remove from oven and use remaining cheese to top each one with a generous pinch of cheese. Put back in oven and bake 10-15 minutes more, until zucchini is slightly soft when pierced with a fork and cheese is melted and lightly browned. Serve hot. Zucchini Salad with Lemon, Herbs, and Goat Cheese 2 medium or 3 small zucchini, washed and thinly sliced into rounds, leaving skin on, or peeled lengthwise with a potato peeler for thinner slices Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste (I used ground sea salt) 1 lemon (use all the zest and juice, and I would choose a large lemon) 1/4 cup best quality extra virgin olive oil 1-2 tbsp. chopped dill 2 tbsp. thinly sliced chives

(Other herbs such as basil, mint, or parsley can be used. I would use 3-4 tbsp. of herbs, no matter which ones you choose.) Another good combination is: parsley, garlic, almond slices, and capers; 2 tbsp. crumbled goat cheese (could also use feta, ricotta, or Parmesan cheese for a slightly different version) Wash zucchini and dry with paper towel or dishcloth, then thinly slice into rounds, using a mandoline or sharp chef’s knife. Arrange the zucchini slices on a serving platter (either in a single layer or in several layers) and season with salt and fresh ground black pepper. (If you make several layers of zucchini, be sure to season each layer.) Wash the lemon and dry with paper towels or dish towel, then cut off ends of the lemon and discard. Zest the rest of the lemon skin and put lemon zest in a small dish. Squeeze all the lemon juice into the dish with the zest, discarding seeds. (If you don’t get at least 2 tbsp. lemon juice I’d use two lemons.) Whisk 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil into the lemon zest/juice mixture, then pour the dressing over the zucchini slices. Let zucchini marinate for 15-30 minutes while you prep other ingredients or make the rest of dinner. Wash herbs and spin dry or dry with paper towel, then chop herbs. When you’re ready to serve the salad, sprinkle with chopped herbs and goat cheese and serve immediately. (Don’t take the goat cheese out of the fridge until right before you’re ready to serve it or it won’t crumble.)

News Sewer extension granted RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

An Okanagan Landing neighbourhood is getting sewer. Vernon council has approved the extension of the sewer line to 22 properties on Tronson and Beachcomber Bay roads. Of the properties, only 12 agreed to the $330,000 cost, which the property owners will repay the city for. “Fifty-four per cent can inflict this on the rest of the people and I have a problem with that,” said Coun. Bob Spiers.

VEHICLE BLAZES

The city will be responsible for a $315,000 sewer lift station. City willing to provide service Vernon wants to be the catalyst for economic growth in the North Okanagan. The Regional District of North Okanagan is considering its options for economic development and the city says it will provide the service on a contract or project basis. “It’s a task-by-task basis instead of initiating a full blown service with salaries,” said Coun. Patrick Nicol, who is also RDNO chairperson.

Cadet season wraps up Morning Star Staff

Residents will be treated to an evening of military pomp and circumstance on Thursday. Marching to the music of combined bands, more than 600 youth will bring the 64th season to an end at the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. “Relatives, friends, and visitors are invited to watch the pomp and ceremony of the final parade and sunset ceremony, which begins at 6 p.m. with a demonstration of precision rifle drill by cadets in the drill and ceremonial course,” said Wayne Emde, community public relations officer. “Following the drill demonstration, the centre’s School of Music cadets will play a series of selections. Parade markers will be called at 6:30 p.m. and the cadets will march on to the parade square at 6:35 p.m. The reviewing officer will arrive at 7 p.m.” Reviewing the final parade will be Col. David Anderson, brigade commander for 1 Brigade Group Land Forces Western Area. Included in the event’s activities will be an inspection of the cadets on parade, the march past, the presentation of awards and an address to the cadets by Anderson. Assisting him in the inspection will be three officers who

Council considers library bus stop RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Accessibility to Vernon’s new library may improve. City council instructed staff Monday to look into the feasibility of a bus stop on 28th Street. “We have had quite a few letters from seniors,” said Coun. Juliette Cunningham of the lack of direct bus service at the Okanagan Regional Library branch. “The former library was quite acces-

sible and now there is quite a hike (from the transit terminus at Cenotaph Park). It would also benefit mothers with strollers.” A firm timeline for changing existing routes won’t be known until the staff review is completed. “I’ve already started the investigation into this and a B.C. Transit planner in Victoria is working on this,” said Amanda Watson, a transportation technician. Cunningham “I hope to have an answer in a week or two.”

Festivals support cancer care Morning Star Staff

Dragon boats and golf clubs don’t usually mix, but that’s exactly what two local events are planning. The Prospera Vernon Dragon Boat Festival has teamed up with the Wine, Women and Woods Tee Off for the Cure. Both events contribute to the funding of mammography equipment at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Funds also support the breast cancer research in young women that’s being done through the University of B.C., with support coming from the B.C. region of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. “Giving back to the local community is definitely the focus of the Prospera Vernon Dragon Boat Festival” said Lisa George, event manager.

“The festival supports a broad range of community based rowing and paddling programs offered here in Vernon, encourages participation by all ages and abilities and aims to leave a substantial legacy at VJH. “Combining the fundraising efforts of the festival and the Tee Off for the Cure is an exciting step forward,” said George. Both events are approaching fast. The Prospera Dragon Boat Festival takes place at Kal Beach Saturday while the Wine, Women and Woods tees up Sept. 7 and 8 at the Vernon Golf and Country Club. For more information on the Vernon Dragon Boat Festival, visit www.vdbf.ca. For more information on Wine, Women and Woods, go to www. winewomenandwoods.com.

Celtics halt losing skid Morning Star Staff

With eyes on third spot with two weeks left, the Vernon Celtic showed up locked, loaded and determined to get a solid result Monday night at Marshall Field #5. The Celtics delivered after a short losing skid with a 4-1 victory over third-place Peoples Insulation in Okanagan Men’s 35+ Soccer League action. A strong rush from Jesse Knight led to the Celtics’ opening goal in the first half when he was taken down in front of the net. Bryan Schenker converted the ensuing penalty kick. Right after the break, the visitors from Kelowna leveled the game after a breakaway, which turned out to be their only opportunity of the match. The Celtic got back to work and took the lead back when Geoff Straight sent a high, right-footed shot inside the far post. After that, the Celtic played their best 30 minutes of the season, pressing all over the field and knocking the ball around as only the Spanish national team does. Schenker extended the lead on a solo run with 15 minutes remaining. The final Celtic goal came two minutes from time after a fluent passing combination ended with an easy tap-in by Graeme McGee. The 8-5-2 Celtic defence – led by Jason Beck, Jesse Knight, Volker Otto and Dave Dobernigg – was rock-solid all night, making sure stand-in keeper Ryan Sharp was kept out of trouble. Peoples dipped to 8-4-2.

Tiremen turn back Lake Country Vernon Kal Tire gutted out their finest game of the season in a 4-3 win over Lake Country Variform in 35+ league play Monday night at Marshall #2. Kal Tire (2-11-2) went up early with some great ball movement up the middle and a great finish by Darren Nobrega. Shortly after, David Broadhurst connected on a penalty kick before Lake Country replied on a nice solo effort. Kal Tire’s Pat Varley, from the back end, brought the ball up through the middle, and past several defenders, before finishing with a brilliant strike to put the Tiremen up 3-1. Lake Country took advantage of a defensive miscommunication to pop in a second goal. Nobrega, with some great passing by Simon

Stars sink Ogopogos Vernon Silver Stars shaded Big O Tire/Turn-Key Ogopogos 1-0 in a thrilling Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League derby match Monday night at Marshall Field #3. The Stars scored in the eighth minute off a hand ball call on defender Paul Hunter, who was helplessly struck by a blistering free kick by Stephen Fitzpatrick. Steve Coombs, who just missed on a header chance three minutes earlier, made no mistake and blasted the penalty kick in the corner past keeper Yogi Kongsdorf. The match was an awesome battle with both teams having incredible chances, but with no Christine Sinclair results. Stars’ keeper Ted Lurkins made an Olympictype diving save and pushed a howitzer by Henry Czerwonka off the post, on a breakaway late in the game. Both teams traded crossbar chances with newlywed Rick Danyluk of the Stars striking wood twice.

Camels score late for draw The Leko Precast Camels scored with one second remaining to gain a 1-1 tie with North Country Appraisals Kickers at Kettle Valley in Kelowna. Fritz Berenyi scored with five minutes left to give North Country the lead. However, after poor marking by North Country and a great shot by Dave Marshall, the game ended up as a draw. It was a spirited game with both teams missing several key players. The Camels are 12-4-1, the Kickers 8-5-4. Harry De Haas scored twice as the Rented Mules bounced Bosman Accounting 5-0 at Marshall #1. Andreas Deitrich, Mike Hrzic and Dewayne Robinson also tallied for the 6-9-2 Mules, who clicked twice on penalty kicks. Bosman dipped to 4-13 with no sustained pressure on stellar keeper Blair Forrest.

Sports IGA steps up attack Continued from A27 Salmon Arm standin keeper Johaness Schneider made some clutch saves in a scoreless first half, while IGA weathered the early storm as Salmon Arm poured on the pressure. The IGA boys (151-1) came out determined not to give up any points in their title race. Lionel Hoffman broke the deadlock at 60 minutes with a wellplaced header from a Jim Kruiper cross. Kruiper then buried a precision free kick into the right corner. Salmon Arm coughed up a penalty from a slide tackle in the box, which Tony Gonzales calmly converted in the 70th minute. Hoffman capitalized on a mix-up in the 7-8-2 Salmon Arm defence to complete the scoring. Chris Purnell (2) and Neil McNeil handled the offence as Lake Country beat Pushor Mitchell Advocates 3-0 at Mission 69 Field. The Lakers improved to 9-62. The Advocates are 5-10-2. The Rutland Spirit grounded the shortstaffed Brandt’s Creek Pub 3-0 at Parkinson 9 Field, and Penticton United slammed Cantinas Pub 9-0.

Vernon’s Curtis Lazar has three points in two games at the Under 18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial hockey tournament in Piestany, Slovakia. Lazar, a 6-foot, 190-pound forward, fired the Team Canada’s opening goal in a 4-1 win over Switzerland Monday. The Edmonton Oil Kings’ sniper added a powerplay goal and assist as the the four-time defending champion Canadians outlasted Sweden 7-5 a day later at Zimny Stadion. Canada can win their four-team B pool with a win over host Slovakia today. Playoffs begin Friday. The U.S., Russia, Finland and Czech Republic are battling in the A pool. Canada, coached by ex-NHLer Todd Gill, have earned 20 minors over the two games. “We really have to cut down on that,” Gill told Canadian Press. “A lot of them were stick penalties where the defenceman has a man going wide and gives him that little tap that we’re used to doing but it hits the other player’s stick and we’re in the box all night.” Gill coached the Brockville Braves vs the Vernon Vipers in the 2010 RBC Cup in Dauphin, Man.

Play was super fast, competitive and skilled under scorching temperatures at MacDonald Park last weekend. It was the annual North Okanagan United (NOU) co-ed soccer tournament and 21 teams from all over the province went hard and NOU raised some money for their trip to the World Masters Games in Italy next August. “A great time was had by all,” said Shelly Johnston of NOU. “There were lots of laughs and we thank all the participants, local and visiting.” In the six-team Competitive Division, it was Vernon’s Taboo defeating Penticton Young Gunners 2-1 in a shootout final. Heidi Holtman was chosen MVP for Taboo, while Matt Bumstead took MVP for the Gunners. Vernon’s Here for the Beer finished third by edging Win The Night 2-1 with Alberto Lopez MVP. In the 15-team Recreation Division, Kelowna Upper Class placed first with MVP honours going to Hailey Eyana. Aldergrove’s Better Looking Than You were second, while the PoCo Slappers took third (MVP was Janine Kerr). Honorable mention MVPs from other Vernon teams included: Ruben Cerventez of Big O Tire; Justin Sawka of the Dribbling Dudes & Dames; Tanner Kozak of Sogo and Andrew Pool of Win The Night. The Best Beer Garden team award went to Jugs & Thugs from Prince George. “One of the highlights was having the complete Neilson family out on the field for the first time ever,” said Johnston. “Pat was running the tourney as part of NOU, while her daughters, Christine and Monica, were playing for Sogo, and John (daddy) was watching and driving everyone home. “Pat spent her birthday (Saturday) with her big family (the entire beer gardens) including all the teams singing her happy birthday.” Great food was supplied by M&M Meats, including the steak dinner Saturday night. Johnston praised Wayne Aasen for overseeing the scores, Marina Korberg of NOYSA for scheduling, Shannon Smart for scheduling the refs and assistants and Jim Wilson for lining the fields.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Things in general should work out rather well, due to your shrewd use of your assets and abilities. What your logic overlooks, your instincts will take care of. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Perhaps one of your greatest gifts is your ability to get along with people from all walks of life. This splendid quality is likely to be in big effect currently. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Try to focus your efforts on meaningful objectives while you’re in such a good achievement cycle. Don’t waste your time on matters of little significance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It behooves you to treat developments philosophically, regardless of whether they are beneficial or harmful. A good attitude keeps things in perspective. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) An investment does not have to produce a huge profit in order to be classified as a success. Be alert for all kinds of opportunities, both big and small. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Should a difficult decision vie for your attention, face up to it courageously. Being wishy-washy is the worst thing you can do, and would more than likely cause your defeat. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Instead of just doing what is expected of you, go for broke and produce as

much as you can. Your industriousness will not go unnoticed or unrewarded. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Anything you can handle yourself should not be pawned off onto someone else. While you’re on a roll, others may not be, so do the chores yourself and everyone will end up happy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Be the one who moves forward on a deal, even if those with whom you’re involved don’t want to come on board. Conditions favor finalizing matters to your satisfaction. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Even if you have to put your salesmanship skills to the test, it shouldn’t be too hard for you to come away with what you want, regardless of how tough your prospect is. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Small details could actually be of far greater significance than the larger issues. Fortunately for you, these critical factors aren’t likely to escape your attention.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder IF PARTNER ASKS, ANSWER CORRECTLY Jessica Beth Savitch, a television broadcaster and news reporter who died in 1983, said, “A news event is like Texas weather. If you don’t like it, wait a minute.” Bridge hands are like Texas weather. If you don’t like yours, wait a few minutes and you will have another one. But during that time, try not to make any fatal mistakes. Take the East hand. You have a genuine Yarborough, no card higher than a nine. Partner leads a fourthhighest heart four against three no-trump. Do you have a useful part to play? Also, do you agree with North’s use of the Stayman convention to try to find a 4-4 spade fit?

Taking the second question first, I think North should respond three no-trump. With a strong doubleton, just go for no-trump. But if North had held, say, ace-queenfourth of diamonds and a low doubleton club, using Stayman would have been recommended. South will take the diamond finesse. If it wins, he has overtricks in his future. If it loses, maybe hearts will be 4-4 or perhaps West will not know that the suit can be run. Here, since East cannot play a useful heart (a card higher than the eight), he must drop the two, indicating an odd number, not cover the five with his seven (which would show a doubleton).

Here, West knows East has three hearts. (If the two were a singleton, South would have four hearts, but he denied a four-card major in the auction.) So, when West gets in with the diamond king, he cashes the heart ace to drop South’s king and runs the suit for down one.

Brandon Beday May 11, 1977 - August 16, 2010

It is hard to believe that it has been 2 years since we have been able to see your smiling face and since you have been able to cruise on the crystal waters that you loved so much. Our love for you will never go away and we miss you dearly every day.

Much love from your mom Lana, brother Trenton, sister-in-law Sasha, nephew Dominic, niece Sienna, sister Aimee (Jordon) and many other extended family members and friends.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Brad Walton Pointer on August 10, 2012 in Vernon, BC at 52 years of age. Brad was predeceased by his dad, Les, and his older brother, Mervin. Brad is survived by his loving mother Jennet “Babe” Pointer, sister Myrna (Bob) Pothecary, sisterin-law Sue Pointer, niece Lani (Dave) Roberts and family, nephew Ryan and family, and numerous cousins. He will be forever loved and deeply missed by his family and friends. When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom filled room Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little - but not too long And not with your head bowed low Remember the love that we once shared Miss me - but let me go! The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses at Vernon Jubilee Hospital ICU for their compassionate care of Brad during his recent illness. A special thanks to family friend Ida Woods. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca.

Q: A:

Brian Sanjenko

Dawn Stephanishin

Home Inspector

What do you think of hot water on demand water heaters, are they really more efficient?

Yes! Tank-less water heaters or on demand type water heaters have been found to be more energy efficient. Recent studies by CMHC found that gas fired on demand water heaters were 46% more efficient than the conventional gas fired storage water heaters. One drawback was noted that 2% more water consumption was recorded due to a delay in hot water arriving at the tap & consumer’s tendency to use more hot water because the supply was endless. And the supply is endless, as an example, I had one installed in my home. One day I drained my hot tub to clean it & replace the water; I then filled it with hot water via my hot water on demand system. I had to wait for the water in the hot tub to cool down before I could use the hot tub. The cost of retrofitting an on demand water heater is more than a conventional water heater. A conventional heater may cost around $1000 to replace while to retrofit an on demand water heater will most likely start at $2500 or more. Shop around for your best deal, Information on energy savings research can be found on the CMHC web site. And remember: when in doubt, always ask an expert.

Q: A:

My brother has lost his job and the family is worried that they will lose their home. Are there any programs that can help young families to stay in their home?

Losing your job is a very stressful time and thankfully many Lenders and Insurers will work with your brother to give him time to find a new position. All three Mortgage Insurers - Canada Mortgage and Housing, Canada Guarantee and Genworth Financial (Homeownership assistance program) - offer support for people experiencing financial challenges caused by many things such as marital break down, loss of job/decreased income, unexpected illnesses and Disabilities. It is best to gather as much information as he can such as the mortgage payment amount he owes, what income he will have, a potential time frame that he needs help for and to make the phone call to your Lender. He will likely be referred to the Insurer as well, but the key is to have open communication. (Many Lenders will waive up to four payments on these types of situations with the help of the Insurer so it is always best to act right away.) This was a great question and can be applied to many clients in the Okanagan. If you are experiencing difficulty, be sure to contact your Lender as quickly as possible in the process as it will help to not only save your Credit but to be establish trust so that your Lender will feel that you are committed to repairing the arrears of mortgage payments.

A:

A fall can be a devastating occurrence for a senior. In fact, 85% of injuryrelated hospital admissions in seniors are the result of falls. You’re both wise to be concerned. However, rather than his being frightened of the “statistics” or having him afraid of winding up like so many others with fractures that require hospitalization, surgery and maybe a move from their current home, we encourage you to take a positive approach with your Dad. At Nurse Next Door, we say, “The walker will set you free!” Walking is fantastic exercise, the weather outside is beautiful, and he should feel confident to get out there and enjoy life. A walker is a seat, a means of carrying items, and a partner that will help prevent a fall. Call it his new girlfriend, the old ball and chain, his new Cadillac or whatever might give him a fun way of looking at this new transition time.

They are both an effective way to block the sun & damaging UV rays. Todays awnings are made with fabrics that have 10 year warranties, & with powdercoated aluminum frames to withstand our sudden wind gusts. Awnings can be rolled back part or all the way, allowing you to control the weather. Options are endless with awnings: motorization, sun & wind sensors & remotes. Pergolas are fixed structures that can be solid or lattice tops. This allows the sun to be blocked from 20% up to 100%. You can enclose the sides with draperies or drop shades as well as add ceiling fans or lights, & finish it off with hanging baskets. All our products are maintenance-free & designed to make your outdoor living space an extension of your home. DECORWORLD Paint & Window Coverings

Dad is becoming unsteady on his feet and I’m concerned about him falling. We’ve tried to encourage him to use a cane, but he’s reluctant. I don’t think he’s walking as much anymore because he’s worried about falling too, although he won’t admit it. What should we do?

Q: A:

What can psychotherapy do for me?

Psychotherapy can help you understand why you do what you do, feel what you feel, and act like you act. It helps you get rid of old habits and beliefs that no longer serve you and opens the door to feelings of peace, happiness, and excitement. You have answers to your own questions. In a safe and supportive environment, a psychotherapist uses a variety of tools and techniques to help you access your own inner wisdom. Psychotherapy facilitates turning feelings of being lost, stuck, depressed, anxious, or stressed into feelings of belonging, happiness, confidence, self assuredness and peacefulness. So, you can make positive changes in your personal, professional, or spiritual lives!

Q: A:

How loud does a sound have to be before it can damage your hearing?

Noise levels above 85 decibels can cause hearing loss over time. Everyday noises like fire sirens, road construction and even movie theatres can lead to permanent hearing loss in less than ten minutes. To give you some guidelines: A whisper is general 20 to 30 decibels, a lawn mower or truck noise registers at 90 decibels, a rock concert or baby crying can register at 100 to 130 decibels continuously. Gunshots are usually about 120 to 150 decibels.

Q: A:

What is luck?

Well, it isn’t a 649 ticket, a golden dragon or a red envelope ... it’s actually much simpler than that. If we look to the dictionary, we see this: • A force that brings good fortune or adversity • The events or circumstances that operate for or against an individual Hmm, let’s try another one: • The chance happening of fortunate or adverse events • Good fortune or prosperity • One’s personal fate Luck has become an excuse, an unattainable icon, a reason for someone’s success or failure ... well, enough of that. Luck is what you make of it, simple as that. If you want good things in your life, then make that happen by doing good deeds and working hard: Karma. Luck changes over time and in different cultures, so you should move with it. You do have the ability to change your luck .. it’s called ‘choice’ and in the world of Chinese metaphysics, we call that ‘man luck,’ and it really is the best kind to have ...

Housing construction continues to experience challenges. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation reports there were 16 single-detached housing starts in July compared to 18 in 2011. And there were no starts of any multiple-unit homes last month compared to four during the

year before. So far in 2012, there have been 69 starts of single-detached homes in Vernon, down from 73 in 2011, but there have been 27 starts of multiple-unit residences, up from 14. In total for Vernon this year, there have been 96 starts, a 10 per cent rise from the 87 recorded over the same period in 2011.
