Becker fires suspicious

READY FOR THE RIVER

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Alarm bells are being rung over an ongoing series of fires in a Vernon park. Firefighters received reports of a blaze in Becker Park at about 6:30 a.m. Thursday, the third such incident in about three weeks. “There are conditions that are very suspicious,” said Lawrie Skolrood, deputy fire chief, of a cause. “There is evidence of a start in the grass.” Becker Park is located next to the Vernon Curling Club. Thursday’s fire covered Lawrie Skolrood an area 20-metres-by-four metres, but Skolrood says the potential could have been more significant if it had got into longer grass. Skolrood doesn’t believe the fires are a result of people camping in the park trying to keep warm or cook food. “It seems to be more random than people in the park. There seems to have been an effort to get the grass going,” he said, adding anyone using an ignition source should be careful. “I’m glad we put effort into modifying the fuel load (in recent years) but there’s still a lot of risk. We’re going to give it more attention.” The RCMP are involved in the investigation with the Vernon Fire Department.

News Debate heating up over firefighting RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Okanagan Landing firefighters are walking, and they claim it’s over an administration model that puts the public in jeopardy. A majority of the 28 members of the volunteer department say they will resign Jan. 31 instead of joining a single command structure with the Vernon hall. “A reason noted as to why many members will not join the Vernon Volunteer Firefighters Association is they cannot support a response model that puts the public at greater risk,� states a release. Specifically, the Landing firefighters say the Aug. 14 grass fire at The Rise could have been kept smaller if they had been involved earlier. “After seeing the smoke, several Okanagan Landing firefighters headed to the Okanagan Landing fire station and waited 16 minutes and 58 seconds to be paged to the fire by Vernon dispatch while members of the public stopped and asked why the firefighters were not responding to the fire that spread quickly as the firefighters sat and watched,� states the release. It goes on to say that Landing firefighters are not allowed to respond to a blaze unless their assistance is requested by Vernon, something that was automatic in previous years. “The Rise is the most recent of a series of incidents where there has been an unnecessary delay before Okanagan Landing firefighters have been called.� City council recently decided not to renew a fire service agreement with the Okanagan Landing Volunteers Firefighters Association. It was formed in 1975 and has provided services under contract since the Landing was

Okanagan Landing firefighters claim the grass fire next to The Rise could have been minimized earlier if the department had been paged in a more timely manner. annexed into Vernon in 1993. All members of the Landing hall have been invited to join the Vernon Volunteer Firefighters Association. “We feel council made a narrow, onesided decision. It’s a slap in the face to us,� said Todd Montgomery, Landing association president. City officials have stated integration of the departments is required to ensure training levels but Montgomery disagrees. “We are trained, proficient and capable. It’s defamation of character,� he said.

Montgomery won’t say exactly how many firefighters will quit if the contract isn’t renewed by Jan. 31. But he’s left wondering how the city will handle the lack of resources. “As a taxpayer, I’d be curious as to what the contingency plan is,� he said. Keith Green, Vernon’s fire chief, has not seen a copy of the Landing association’s release. “I’m not going to speak to a press release or procedural issues in the media,� he said. However, Green defended his depart-

ment’s actions during the fire at The Rise. “Our members and those from the Landing responded as quickly as resources could be mobilized and everyone did a great job,� he said. Green says he is not concerned about a lack of manpower if a large number of Landing firefighters leave their positions. “We have a contingency plan and we will brief council Sept. 10 on what the plan looks like,� he said. “We can respond to all emergency situations without jeopardizing safety.�

Clothing donations down at thrift shops Morning Star Staff

A Vernon organization that helps the disadvantaged is facing a cash crunch. Operating the food bank and other programs has become challenging for the Salvation Army because a reduction in clothing donations has led to decreased revenue at its two thrift stores. “We generate revenue so we can serve those in need in our community,� said David MacBain, community ministries director. Generally at this time of the year, 500 bags of donated clothes fill an eight-foot-by-10-foot room.

“That will carry us through a two-week period,� said Gary Rich, store manager. “Currently, we have approximately 20 bags at each store which will last a day or two.� There’s considerable speculation as to why donations have plunged. “Perhaps people are having fun at the beach and they’re not doing housecleaning,� said MacBain. All clothing, both adult and children’s, is required. Putting together a food hamper for a single individual can cost $100 while it can be more than $350 for a family of six.

“The impact of below-average clothing donations can affect funds for running programs by thousands of dollars per month,� said MacBain. MacBain is hopeful residents will start cleaning out their closets and drawers as a way of showing support for those facing difficult life circumstances. “We certainly can use their assistance,� he said of donations. “When we let the need be known, the community rallies and we appreciate that.� The Salvation Army thrift stores are located at 3102 29th Ave. and 4402 27th St.

Bird blamed for latest grass fire RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A freak situation is being blamed for a grass fire in the Commonage. It’s believed a blaze broke out at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday after a bird struck an electrical transformer between the Greater Vernon landfill and Commonage Road. “The bird caught on fire, hit the ground and the fire spread (into the grass),” said Lawrie Skolrood, Vernon deputy fire chief. There were reports of a loud bang being heard prior to the fire occurring. That noise is likely related to the bird hitting the transformer, which was surging with electricity. While an unusual situation, Skolrood isn’t completing surprised by a bird starting a fire. “We’ve had a few of those instances over the years,” he said. The fire grew to about two hectares before being brought under control by Vernon, Okanagan Landing and B.C. Forest Service crews.

It will never be known how a fire that destroyed a Coldstream home started. The investigation has wrapped up into a blaze in the 8100 block of Stoneridge Drive Monday night. “It will go down as undetermined,” said Lawrie Skolrood, investigator. It has been determined that the resident was working with open flame in his garage prior to the fire erupting.

“The fire destroyed everything at the work bench so it’s not known exactly what happened,” said Skolrood. The value of the damage has not been determined. The occupants of the home — an older couple — were able to get out of the home with their two dogs. Volunteers from both the Coldstream and Lavington fire halls responded to the scene Monday.

A Vernon man discovered in the water off a Kelowna beach has been identified. Nicholas Tal Salisbury, 26, was found by a snorkeller at the bottom of Okanagan Lake, at Hot Sands Beach, Monday. It’s believed Salisbury, who had recently moved to Kelowna, died during a swimming incident Sunday. “The coroners service is continuing to investigate this death. Foul play has been ruled out,” said Barb McLintock, with the B.C. Coroners Service. The body was in about 1.5 metres of water and about three metres from shore. Salisbury’s bicycle and backpack were found nearby.

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Crews didn’t waste any time tackling a wildfire near Oyama Wednesday. B.C. Forest Service personnel began converging on a site seven kilometres east of the community as soon as reports of a lightning-caused fire began coming in at about 5 a.m. “It was burning quite aggressively,” said Michaela Swan, an information officer. “It was burning in slash and that was contributing to the smoke people are seeing.” The primary focus was to protect the forest resource in the area. “There was no immediate threat to structures in the area,” said Swan. Air tankers dropped retardant to keep the flames from spreading while ground crews created guards. By 4 p.m. Wednesday, the nine-hectare blaze was 100 per cent contained although five firefighters remained there overnight. “We are continuing with aggressive mop-up,” said Swan Thursday. On scene Thursday were 10 Forest Service staff, 30 contractors, five pieces of ground equipment and one helicopter. Crews are also working on 10 smaller fires east of Mabel Lake and northeast of Sugar Lake.

“There are a number of small fires in that area – the largest being 1.5 hectares in size,” said Kevin Skrepnek, Kamloops Fire Centre information officer, adding that they are believed to be a result of Tuesday’s lightning. The largest fire, in the Cottonwood Creek area, is in a remote location, and is not threatening any of the cabins along Mabel Lake.

Off to a great start

S

ix years ago, I walked through the doors as one of those always-in-a-rush working mothers; heavy hearted and chested, having just weaned my first child off breastmilk. I was going back to my “other” job, after spending a year being a full-time mother to my daughter. I managed to somehow get through the dread and guilt, handing that wee package of blonde curls and toothless smiles to the outstretched arms of someone who was then a stranger. I had to learn how to trust this person with the most important being in my life. It was tough. Kristin Froneman Going from changing nappies, mashing up baby food and singing lullabies, to interviewing artists about their latest projects and typing up their stories, was then a daunting task, and sometimes it still is. Luckily, artists are, for the most part, forgiving and kind folks who appreciate any publicity and time you can give them, or why you can’t be at their event because you haven’t seen your kids all week. The same cannot always be said about your kids, who question you on why you have to go to work in the first place. It’s hard to explain the needs of a mortgage or rent, food on the table, clothes on our backs, and the payment of bills to a two year old. But when it came time to leave my daughter –– and later my son –– in daycare after maternity leave, I was lucky to have the incredible support of the staff and fellow parents with the North Okanagan Child Care Society (NOCCS). The non-profit group, which has been operating its group daycare centre out of the West Vernon Elementary building since the school closed its doors in 2007, has been a provider of our family’s second home for many of those precious years.

AT RANDOM

Since 1994, the NOCCS has provided a place where hundreds of local families –– on all incomes –– have relied on for quality care for their kids from infancy to grade school. Although daycare is not an option, or a choice, for every parent, our family, with two working parents and very social kids, surely have benefitted. (And for those families needing to go back to work, but afraid of exorbitant daycare costs, subsidy programs are available.) Not only did they make the transition of going back to work a whole lot easier, the early child care trained staff have prepared my kids for what lies ahead. We have been with the NOCCS since my daughter, now seven, was 15 months old at the Blue Door centre, which is now closed. And she now goes to West Vernon Children’s Centre for their summer camps and occasionally for their after-school programs. In turn, my four-yearold son is just wrapping up his second year in the Montessori preschool program, after being in the infant-toddler programs before then. From preschool French to Montessoribased teaching methods, my kids have learned so much, and I have the spelling of their first words, and drawings all over the walls in my house to prove it. They are treasures; the pieces of their young lives that I will hold onto as long as I live, or at least for as long as my house can hold them. I may need another filing cabinet. The socialization and friendships made over the years have made them better little people. Even when there have been some issues with my son, who can be a little aggressive like young boys can be, the staff have always handled it will utmost concern and care –– so much better than how I would handle it at home. In two weeks, my boy will ease himself into full-time kindergarten, better prepared and ready to take on the challenges that he will face. So as we get ready to say goodbye to all our friends and family at the NOCCS, I just want to say thanks, and we won’t be strangers. And to the mothers and fathers making the same transition we did six years ago, don’t worry, you’re in good hands.

Although it’s nearing the end of summer and autumn beckons, it seems like it would be much too early to talk about the upcoming hockey season. Except, that is, when the clock is ticking on whether the National Hockey League will actually hit the ice this year, or next. It may still be August but concern is mounting for many Canadians about whether the league and its players can get a collective agreement signed before Sept. 15, the day the current deal ends and the day the NHL says it will lock out the players if a new agreement isn’t reached. Haven’t we seen this bad movie sometime in the recent past? Yes, it’s deja vu all over again from when the 2004-05 season was wiped out, which of course is the last time these two sides had to work out a collective agreement. Many hope and believe that such a drastic outcome can be avoided, but as the time ticks down, and the rhetoric heats up, that optimism begins to wane. And for many, trying to choose sides between the owners (billionaires) and the players (millionaires) leaves much to be desired. The fans’ (neither) enthusiasm for the game begins to wane. It would be nice if the two sides could find a way to get past their respective ‘proposals,’ and through compromise and realistic bargaining, not to mention good faith, find a way to get the 201213 season back on track. There is common ground here. The players and owners have both benefitted greatly from the game of hockey, not to mention from the fans who so faithfully watch from the stands and on TV. For everyone’s sake, let’s get this deal done, and sooner rather than later.

Landing decision a mistake

P

atrick Nicol felt the Okanagan Landing Fire Department was blindsided. They were not, they were stabbed in the back. Brian Quiring says, "We need them to be under the direction of the Vernon fire chief." Why would that be? The OLVFD have been in operation for 37 years with zero, and I mean zero, complaints. Nineteen years years we have been in the city, all without complaints. Catherine Lord said with the level of training, "we want it to be more uniform, it makes sense to be part of our training group." Excuse me? The OLVFD is always training, like every other volunteer fire department is. These volunteers have kept us safe, for 37 years. Now you want to throw them aside? Shame on you. A few years ago, then-fire chief Carlisle wanted to bring the OLVFD into the city

MAKING CONTACT As fate would have it a few weeks ago (it was a Friday shortly before noon), I happened upon a lovely lady, Deb while waiting outside of Superstore. I was standing near the pharmacy entrance of the store waiting for a ride. We chatted about gardening and vegetables and we had a plesant, enjoyable conversation. I only wish I had obtained her phone number so we could chat again. I am hoping she might see this, or someone who knows her might see this, so we can connect. She had parked in the lot by the gas station and drove a light, half-ton truck. We both commented on a motorbike that drove in or maybe I was the one. She mentioned an uncle who lived in the Canary Islands (he has since passed). If you are reading this Deb, please contact Jennifer at The Morning Star, who will put you in touch with me. Thank you – looking forward to talking with you again. E. Taylor DIRECTOR RESPONDS On Aug. 12, Dave Ellington had some comments that were very

inaccurate. "Mr. Talbot believes that there was no police in evidence recently during the Summer Stomp and Sturgis North.” For Mr. Ellington’s information, my comments about no police presence were made at a board meeting at the CSRD office before the weekend of both the Stomp and Sturgis. They were in regards to Sturgis North held the previous year in Salmon Arm. As well, there were comments about no municipal RCMP and the elevated number of motorcyclists that were not practicing safe roadmanship. Thank goodness for the highway patrol. For when they arrived, things went instantly back to normal. In June 2012, the Silver Creek Community Association called a meeting to discuss policing issues in Silver Creek. The community hall was overcrowded with very angry and opinionated people. It was standing room only. The main issue that night was the lack of community policing, followed by break and enters, property theft and limited communication between the RCMP and the community of Silver Creek. Unfortunately, the Vernon detachment did not have anyone

present at the meeting to address concerns brought up by residents, as Falkland/ Armstrong/ Enderby police 70 per cent of the Silver Creek area. Now, I am not sure how Mr. Ellington got the impression that I was nowhere in the area. On the Friday afternoon, I and two members from development services were at the Stomp grounds doing a tour of the site. That night, I visited the grounds again from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. The following night, I was yet again at the grounds from 11 p.m. until nearly 2 a.m. In the midst of continuing to check on the events and the policing, I did manage to make time to go the celebration of life held for Ted Bacigalupo, a friend and member on the board of the CSRD. As for the policing that weekend, it was absolutely excellent. I passed through a minimum of five road checks spreading from Silver Creek to Highway 97, and two in the Falkland area. I was extremely impressed and relieved to see the police presence during the events held all on that busy weekend. Rene Talbot. Columbia-Shuswap Regional District director

ploy, with the end result being paid firemen at the Landing, even though I have been reassured this is not the case. I find that very hard to believe. If the OLVFD choose not the join the city, then what? Who will drive the big red truck? According to CHBC, the city will save $60,000. What is $60,000 compared to the million spent for the New Delhi restaurant? How many millions went into the medical clinic building and the flower shop? Let us not forget Allenby Way. You can drive down any time and see service trucks, and even city trucks parked on the sidewalk, what a mistake that was. It wasn't broken, and neither is the OKLFD. Please consider renewing the contract, and tell them your bloody sorry about the error some of our staff and councillors have made. And please stay, we need you. Rose Pollock

RESIDENTS GRATEFUL Regarding the terrible fire at The Rise August 14, we would like to thank all of the firefighters, forestry service personnel, support individuals, volunteers and bomber/helicopter pilots for doing a job that is both dangerous and difficult. We cannot begin to express our thanks for saving our home, keeping everyone safe and containing the fire despite the changing wind conditions and extreme heat. Thanks for the amazing and truly selfless job you did. We would also like to thank the neighbours here at The Rise who went out of their way to help us in so many countless ways. We feel blessed to have moved into such a wonderful community. Thanks to each and everyone of you. Ed and Sharon Ertl GRINDROD DAYS A SUCCESS I would like to thank everyone who gave donations for the silent auction at Grindrod Days. It was a great success. Also, thank you to all of the volunteers who gave so many hours to make the event a success. I also want to thank the people who have supported this event

over the years by their attendance. Once again, thank you for your help. We are one step closer to our new community hall. Lindsay Kibbe

Target is coming to town a little earlier than expected, for a one-day end-of-summer celebration. The major U.S. retailer, which is opening in spring 2013 in Vernon, is throwing a Bullseye Beach party at Kin Beach Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. “Part of what we’re doing before the doors open is having different events,� said Lisa Gibson, Target communications. “We wanted to surprise and delight our future guests.� Sections of Kin Beach will be transformed into Target Bullseye Beach, providing endless fun and numerous giveaways (including some Target branded products). There will be kids activities, beach volleyball, ringtoss, sandcastle competitions and more, or just sit back and relax with an ice cream or juice in Target’s shaded lounge or Bullseye beach shop. “There will be something for everyone at Target Bullseye Beach,� said Gibson. “And this is a great way for us to get to know the people of Vernon.� There will also be a chance for those interested in working at the new store, which will employ between 150 to 200 people, to talk to representatives.

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Ashley Cail, BC Hydro Community Outreach representative, shares some energy saving tips with Ryan Plouffe during Moonlight Movies at Polson Park Sunday. The event was sponsored by Interior Savings Credit Union and the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club. Hiring of team leaders (managers) has already taken place and hourly positions will be looked at later this year. Target is opening in the current Zellers store at the Village Green Centre in the spring of 2013. Zellers is closing in November and the local site will be closed

for six to nine months for $10 million in renovations. “We’ll be starting construction later this year,� said Gibson, adding that renovations will transform the location into a true Target experience. The move to Vernon is just one of Target’s first Canadian openings.

Almost a week after paddlers from the Prospera Vernon Dragon Boat Festival took to the waters at Kalamalka Lake, the true success of the festival is beginning to show. The festival’s success was certainly felt by the paddlers on the water but it also stretches far beyond the shore. In just its second year being organized by Vernon Go Row and Paddle, this year’s festival has already raised more than $8,000 in support of breast cancer initiatives. “When it’s new, it’s hard to predict what level of support it will get,” said Lisa George of Vernon Go Row and Paddle. “It was very rewarding, it’s something we can build on for sure.” This year’s success means that the festival may expand to bring in more boats next year as the sport gains popularity throughout the valley.

cess of this year’s event, despite the overwhelming heat. “It was really hot but that’s OK. That’s the Okanagan in August and it was great to have the lake as a cool down for paddlers,” said George. “Vernon is definitely a great destination, it’s such a desirable location.” Bruce Howell, CEO of Prospera Credit Union, is thrilled with the festival’s success and knows that the support will be felt strongly within in the community. “We are proud to partner with local organizations like the Vernon Rowing and Paddling Centre to showcase all that the Okanagan has to offer,” he said. “We’d like to thank the GO Rowing and Paddling Association of Canada for the amazing job they have done in putting together this inspiring event in support of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital, which will enable them to better serve the needs of the local community through the purchase of critical breast cancer diagnostic equipment.” For more information and results from the festival visit the events page at www.gorowandpaddle.org.

Forever homes sought for adult cats for

2 Days

up to

Only!

25 August 24 &

childhood outfitters (2008) inc.

4407-29th Street Vernon 250-549-1221

Morning Star Staff

The Vernon SPCA is looking to match adult cats with new homes. Until Saturday, residents can choose an adult cat and name their own adoption fee. “Summer is especially hard on adult cats because with so many kittens in the shelters people sometimes overlook the wonderful adult cats who have so much to offer,” said Lorie Chortyk, B.C. SPCA community relations general manager. Chortyk says people who adopt cats

from the SPCA are getting exceptional value, even without a special promotion. “Our average cost to care for a cat during its stay is $784, which includes vaccinations, spaying or neutering, an identification tattoo, preventative treatment for internal and external parasites, any medical care or rehabilitation required, daily welfare monitoring, sheltering and feeding.” A homeless cat can stay in SPCA care from a few days to more than a year before finding a family.

“Our goal is to find loving homes for as many adult cats as possible during the event,” said Chortyk. “All of the usual adoption criteria will apply as we want to make sure that the animals are a right fit for their new home and that their needs will be met.” The Vernon shelter is located at 4800 Haney Rd. For more details, go to www.spca. bc.ca.

president Mike Smith and treasurer Steve Hammer appeared at a recent meeting about the Silver Creek event but enthusiasm was decidedly lacking among board members. “Did your group not enter into an agreement with the regional district, with conditions you were to follow on how your area was laid out, security, all different things?” asked Falkland director Rene Talbot.

“One of the issues was the music.” — Rene Talbot “And one of the issues was the music was to shut down at midnight.” Hammer told directors organizers were not about to apologize for breaking the music curfew because it has long been a successful means of keeping people safely on site for many years. “There were seven or eight conditions and every single one was done above and beyond – not even up to, but exceeding,” he said, frustration creeping in. Hammer told the board 98 letters of support had been sent to CSRD planning assistant Dan Passmore, with a lot of other support expressed verbally. “We’re talking about one weekend a year; that’s 51 we won’t be in that valley and we won’t be a bother to anybody. One weekend we’re asking to do a central fire and music until later in the evening, keeping people onsite.” This did not impress director Larry Morgan. “I can’t say I was particularly impressed when I heard that it went on to all hours of the night,” he said. “Frankly, I am not prepared to support Stomp in the future…” Director Jack

McInaly was succinct in his condemnation. “I’m looking at this pretty simply. You signed a contract that had the noise cut off at midnight because noise was an issue in the past several years,” he said. “You broke that contract, why should we give you another one?” Smith asked directors to consider hosting a community meeting before deciding on the future of the Stomp. “They have a reason to be upset, but so do we,” said Smith. “If we had gone back to the June meeting saying we can’t sign this with the midnight agreement because it makes our event unsafe to host, we believe Mr. Talbot would have said ‘sayonara, it’s been a pleasure not doing business with you.’” Frustrated that none of the positive aspects of the Stomp were brought up at the board meeting, organizers will host a community meeting in Silver Creek. “We’re going invite those in favour or not in favour,” said Hammer. “Even though we don’t think we’ll sway Mr. Talbot, we want people to voice their concerns and accolades.”

All-Vernon showdown for crown Morning Star Staff

It will be an all-Vernon affair when the North Okanagan Soccer League championship game kicks off 6 p.m. Sunday at Marshall Field #2. Both North Enderby Timber and Turn-Key Controls advanced through Wednesday night’s semifinals, with NET blanking Nation of Domination Eagle Homes 3-0 on Marshall #4, and Turn-Key outlasting host Salmon Arm Courvas 2-1 at Little Mountain Field #1. After splitting the season series with Courvas, and ending the regular season tied in points, Turn-Key opened the scoring in just the third minute when Taylor Horsting headed home an Evan Moore corner. Courvas, starting the game with just 10 men, battled hard and eventually evened the score off a corner kick in the 21st minute. The ball just squeaked past Nolan’s Pharmasave Man of the Match Nathan Tucker, who stood in admirably for regular goaltender Jeremy Kler, who was attending UBC Okanagan Heat soccer tryouts. Tucker made two more huge saves before the half to keep the score even going into the break. The second half turned into a midfield battle, with Moore, Preston Tucker and Brendan Love controlling the ball against the Courvas squad. The Turn-Key defence of Carson Haywood-Farmer, Sam Nolan, Kyle Goodgrove, Alex Nolan and Sean Bonnett were steady in shutting down the potent Courvas counterattack. Andrew Pool continued his hot goal-scoring streak when, after some great pressure by Greg Niemantsverdriet and Chris Jahnig, the Controls stripped a Courvas defender in the 77th minute, allowing Pool to convert on a partial breakaway. Turn-Key hung on the rest of the way, taking advantage of some tired Courvas legs to keep the play in the offensive zone. Meanwhile, NET keeper Danny Stein made a couple world-class saves early saves to keep things scoreless in the first eight minutes against Eagle Homes. About 15 minutes in, golden boot winner Brent Poulsen opened NET’s account on a great through ball from Graham Ross, who calmly beat an NOD midfielder before chipping over to Poulsen. Dexter James unleashed a left-footed howitzer for the Timber’s second goal. Ross sent a ball up to Poulsen, who sucked in two defenders before finding a streaking James.

Vipers spring right into exhibition with Wenatchee Morning Star Staff

Williamson

Just two days into main camp and the Vernon Vipers will get their first taste of live action when they host the Wenatchee Wild in a Junior A hockey exhibition tilt Saturday night (7:00) at Wesbild Centre. Jason Williamson, entering his second season as Vernon’s head coach (after four as an assistant), plans to dress a relatively young roster for the game

and is excited to see how they respond. “Competing against other teams is an easier way to gauge where we’re at,� said Williamson, who invited just 35 skaters and five goalies to camp, which started Thursday. “We went with a smaller camp knowing we really focussed on certain players and went into camp making it as competitive as possible. We want to make sure we have the chance to evaluate each kid

fairly by not having too many guys.� The Vipers entertain the West Kelowna (formerly Westside) Warriors in B.C. Hockey League preseason action Monday night at Wesbild. They head to Royal LePage Place to face the Warriors again Tuesday, and conclude their preseason schedule with a weekend home-and-home against Troy Mick’s Salmon Arm Silverbacks, starting next Friday at the Shaw Centre.

Sports Brown soars at Legion nationals

Barrie hunting leaders

CHAMPION CHUCKER

Morning Star Staff

It was the biggest meet of her life, and Armstrong’s Ella Brown delivered. The 16-year-old Pleasant Valley Secondary student ranked seventh in triple jump at the Canadian Legion National Track & Field Championships Sunday in Charlottetown, P.E.I. Brown’s leap of 11.22 metres eclipsed her personal best by 19 cm. She competed in a field of 23. Ian Cameron, who coaches Brown at the Vernon AAA Track & Field Club, notes her achievement is all the more impressive because she has only competed in triple jump for two years. “The most amazing thing she accomplished all summer was the amount of work she put in to enable her to do what she did at that championship,” said Brown, who was head coach of Team B.C. at the event. “She worked so hard for the last six months; she trained on grass at PVSS, and on pavement at Polson Park.” The Legion nationals meet attracted more than 800 athletes.

Vernon’s Dylan Emmons pitches for Team B.C. at the Western Canadian Bantam Baseball Championships in Morden, Man. Emmons went 11-for-16 and added five stolen bases to help B.C. go 5-0 and claim gold. He pitched against Manitoba and Saskatchewan, recording six strikeouts and allowing just three runs.

Snakes loaded on defence Continued from A21 The ‘Backs visit Wesbild the following night at Wesbild. The Vipers will enter the season eager to erase a forgettable 2011-12 campaign in which they missed the playoffs for the first time in a decade. They will be led by the formidable blueline corps of newly anointed captain Brett Corkey, Marc Hetnik, Ryan Renz and Geoff Crisfield. Up front, they are returning Adam Tambellini, Aaron Hadley, Colton Sparrow, Jedd Soleway, Brendan Persley and Riley Hunt. Williamson and head scout Larry Black seem to have done their homework in signing defensive prospects Michael Statchuk and Kevin Guiltinan. Statchuk, the younger brother of former SilverBack forward Travis, was captain of

the Saskatchewan AAA Midget league’s Prince Albert Mintos. He registered 13 goals and 26 assists in 44 games. Guiltinan played with Toronto’s Hill Academy last year and earned the Vipers’ attention after an impressive showing at the team’s spring camp. New forwards to watch for are Pierce Eviston, Braeden Russell and Craig Martin. Eviston is a skilled power forward who comes to Vernon from the WHL Portland Winterhawks. He previously played in the BCHL with the Victoria Grizzlies. At 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, Russell will add size to the Viper lineup. He played with the Oakville Blades the last two seasons. Martin racked up 48 goals and 48 assists in 50 games as a 16-year-old with the KIJHL

Jenny Garnett turned the hat trick as the Chick Kickers blanked North Okanagan United 3-0 in women’s Masters Division soccer action Tuesday night on Marshall Field #1. Garnett opening the scoring in the North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association tilt when Tania Sladen lobbed a kick over the NOU keeper, leaving Garnett an easy tapin. Later in the first half, Garnett capitalized on a cross by Trish Cox into the 18. She completed the trick on a second-half solo effort, turning the ball over and chipping it over the keeper. Wendy Martens and Wendy Magnus had superb games at central defence to help Charlene Johnson post the shutout.

Impact ground Drillers Longhorn Impact bounced Goplen Drillers 6-2 Tuesday night on Marshall #2. Tina Garrison sparked the Impact offence with a beautiful cracker. Aggressive defence and consistent passing led to the Longhorn’s second goal by Edeen Ramsay. Goplen earned one back on a quick rush through the middle, however, just before the halftime, Dawn Heiss belted in a left-footer for the winner. The second half saw Ramsay bury her second of the night, followed by the 5-1 goal by Myra McEwan, who lofted a shot from outside the 18-yard box. Janelle Smithson completed the Impact offence before the Drillers added a late consolation tally. Kate Colbeck stepped up to replace stellar goalkeeper Derri Ann Cooper in the second half, so Cooper could rest up for Thursday’s make-up game against the Chicks.

Controllers clamp down Sista’s Ever-improving Seasons Sista’s bowed 3-1 to the Vernon Controllers on Marshall #4. With star keeper Mickey Templeton watching from the sidelines nursing an injury, the Controllers opened the scoring early as Therese Weber sent a beautiful cross to Jenny Currie who relayed it to Jenn Spitzer for a one-timer from close in. Spitzer put the Controllers up by two midway through the second half as a Currie free kick found Emma Louie, who laid it back to a charging Spitzer to bang home. Krista Backer then one-touched a Currie through ball to send Spitzer in alone for the Controllers’ final goal. Sherry Wiebe took a turn up front for the Sista’s and responded with her first goal of the season. Wiebe sent a blistering left-footer, low to the near side late in the second half to spoil Leslie Epp’s shutout. Shannon Nolting drew the assist as she volleyed the ball to Wiebe off a throw-in from Deb Whitling. Lesley Williams sacrificed herself and

played amazing defence. Sacha Schenker broke up lots of plays and created many attacks on the Controllers’ net. Andrea Zubot missed on a couple of great opportunities, hitting the crossbar on one high shot, and narrowly missing a header on a great Kim Sylvester cross. Becky (Bubbles) Birbilis was cleared for blowing bubbles again, and relayed numerous through balls for forward Sylvester. Controllers defender Michele Wernicke had a strong game as did centre back Brandie Hunter and right back Val Percy. Midfielders Sena Bishop, Ang Durfeld, Michelle Mercer and Felicia O’Gorman and Weber worked the short passing game to set up hard-working forwards Sherri Kineshanko and Krista Copeland. Keeper Suzyn August challenged attackers, deflected tough shots and pounced on loose balls.

Outlaws draw Celtics In Division 1 play Tuesday night, Little Tex Outlaws and North Enderby Timber Celtics played to a 1-1 draw on a gusty Marshall #5.

News Make time for safety this summer MIKE BOYARSKI Special to The Morning Star

Ah, yes – it’s summer, and we can all enjoy the sun, the beach, the easy summer living. Vacations, camping, day trips to see the sights – these are what golden summer memories are made of – especially as we approach the final long weekend of summer. But it’s also important that we remember to be aware of the hidden dangers of summertime. It’s one way to ensure that you’ll enjoy the photos from your summer fun for years to come. ■ Travel – Be sure to keep your cell phone charged, and consider purchasing a second battery. Always have a first aid kit in the car. Make note of landmarks and direction so emergency personnel can find your location easily if you need to call 911. ■ Water and pools – Children are particularly vulnerable to accidents in pools. They can drown in less than five centimetres of water, so never leave a child unattended near water. Always empty wading pools after supervised use. People really enjoy being in and around some of the beautiful lakes Vernon has to offer. When on the lake, a life jacket can save your life, but only if you wear it. ■ Bikes, skateboards and rollerblades – Helmets can significantly reduce the risk of brain injury for all ages when worn appropriately. Children should wear a helmet at all times, even if they’re just riding a tricycle; a fall from as little as two feet can result in significant trauma to a child’s brain. ■ Cars – Never leave a child or pet in your car – even with the windows partly rolled down the interior temperature can reach 50 degrees Celsius in as little as 10 minutes. ■ Sun Sense – Guard against heat stroke by moving to the shade. Take a break once in a while

so that you don’t overdo sun exposure, and drink lots of water to avoid dehydration. Headache, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, clammy/pale skin and weak or rapid pulse are all common signs of heat exhaustion. ■ Campfires and barbecues – Never leave a fire or barbecue unattended or use a camp stove in a confined space; always keep children a safe distance from the heat. Remember that even a fire that has been recently put out can generate enough heat to cause a serious burn in a child. ■ Pull over for paramedics and other emergency responders – If an ambulance is travelling with lights and siren on, paramedics are responding to a life-threatening situation or are taking a patient to receive urgent care. B.C. Ambulance Service crews respond to more than 486,000 events every year throughout the province. That’s nearly one call every minute 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In Vernon alone, we responded to more than 6,700 calls last year. When minutes can affect a patient’s outcome, paramedics use lights and siren so that they can reach their destination as quickly as possible. So enjoy a wonderful summer with family and friends. Be sure you have lots of great memories and photos to share for years to come. Make time for safety in the summertime sun but don’t forget the sunscreen. I know that I’m going to enjoy all that B.C. has to offer this summer. Mike Boyarski is the paramedic unit chief for the B.C. Ambulance Service in Vernon.

Car show cruises into Winfield ANDRE LODDER Morning Star Staff

If you’re hoping for good weather, sweet rides, and a great time, Lake Country is the place to be Sunday. After moving from Kelowna four years ago, the Lake Country Customs and Classics Car Show has found success at its new location. Swalwell Park in Winfield will once again be the place to be as the customs and classics roll into town. There will certainly be no shortage of car lovers and enthusiasts, but the show is also expected to be a hot bed for families too. “The show brings a lot of people to town, it’s good clean fun for the whole family. There’s even a water park for the kids,” — Ron Volk said Ron Volk, one of the organizers of the event. “It’s a good mix, it’s for everybody. You get older people, younger people and a lot of families.” Volk and fellow organizer Mark Jones, both long-time car enthusiasts, have been doing all they can to make this one of the premiere car shows in B.C. The show has expanded from the 230 cars that were shown last year, to the nearly 300 cars that are expected this year from all over B.C., Alberta and even Washington State. “It’s a real good thing for Lake Country. We have the district on our side,” said Volk. This year will also feature a rock band that will provide all the classics throughout the day. A total of 16 trophies will be given away on top of the grand prize and numerous door prizes.

“We wanted to have it to raise money for charities in Lake Country. That’s what the whole car show’s about.”

And while cars may be the focus of the show, the purpose of the car show is charity. It’s always been the most important part of the event and it’s one of the reasons Volk and Jones took over in the first place. “We wanted to have it to raise money for charities in Lake Country. That’s what the whole car show’s about,” said Volk. Last year, the show raised $2,500 for the local food bank, a number they’re hoping to double at this years event. The car show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on the Lake Country Customs and Classics Car Show, visit www.lccc. me. Details on registration are available on the website or at the car show.

Allergies are a modern epidemic I used Bell Allergy Relief #24 for 2 years. I tried numerous other remedies all my life that were not effective. Since I discovered #24 I do not have a stuffy nose and itchy eyes when pollen season comes around. No problem working with hardwoods or O.S.B. sheeting. I don’t have to walk around like a doped zombie anymore. Leonard Waldner, 44, Delia, AB Last 4 years in spring I had allergy attacks with runny nose, sore throat and headaches. Just 2 capsules Bell Allergy Relief #24 brought relief. Belinda Wilfong, 41, Hillsboro, MO  For 20 years my life was miserable with sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure year-round on most days. I was amazed. On 3rd day all allergies were gone. #24 It was like magic. Becky Gerber, 25, Dover, OH Golfing without allergy attacks I It really works! 100% tried all the medications and none worked. After taking 1 capsule in the morning I’m completely free of all symptoms. Richard Gamez, 74, San Antonio, TX God bless you natural. Try it risk free. I went from doctor to doctor for years with allergy sinus problems. The medications made me still sicker. After starting Bell Allergy Relief one capsule at night I felt like born again the next morning. Therese Noto, 58, New York, NY. No need to make claims. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

WRIST PAIN

Bell Carpal Tunnel Syndrome #30 gave quick relief within an hour. I was hand milking cows and began having weakness, numbness and pain shooting up my arms. Pain increased at night. My doctor suggested surgery as the only option. Not true! The pain and numbness are all gone after taking #30. I can do now whatever activity I want. Marjorie Wilson, 55, Dubuc, SK  I’m a car mechanic. Holding tools was getting increasingly difficult because of wrist and tendon pain. After 2 weeks on #30 I’m fully productive again. Cancelled scheduled surgery. William Marrero, 56, Miami, FL  I was wearing wrist braces. A woman saw it and told me she had relief right away with #30. I got some same day. It worked for me as well. Thanks a million. Diane Frank, 49, North Battleford, SK  I’m a nurse and work with my hands all day. I experienced increasing pain in my hands and fingers. Surgery was the only option I was told. My husband found #30 for me. I have no more pain or inflammation since. You have a life long customer. Nina Wallace, 52, Dacula, GA No need to make claims.

After 2 days taking Bell # 31 I noticed a complete relief of my infection I had all these 30 years. God bless you all for helping all of us women. Emell Whitaker, 69, Bronx, NY  Bladder infections kept on coming back. Since starting Bell Bladder & Yeast Infection #31 my infection was gone and I now take it from time to time for prevention and I have no more bladder or yeast infections. I told family and friends how good Bell products are. Thank you! Maria Racz, 60, Vancouver, BC Went to the bathroom 10 times in an hour and more frequently at night!.

Models honing outfits with antlers, fur, horns and feathers made quite the statement when they strutted on the catwalk at Toronto’s Arts and Fashion Week in April. The work of Calgary up-andcoming clothing and jewelry designer Mackenzie Jones, the garments are influenced by the flora and fauna of Canada’s natural wilderness, and are just part of Jones’ unique wearable art collection. Jones has shown her creations at Vancouver Fashion Week, Toronto’s Alternative Fashion Week, Las Vegas Fashion Week, and at the Wearable Art Gala in Kelowna, and now she’ll be showing them at Vernon’s Riot on the Roof. The Vernon Public Art Gallery’s fourth annual event, which features alternative art, music, fashion, film, poetry and more, is once again taking place high above Vernon (actually the two top floors of the cityowned parkade on 31st Avenue above the gallery), and promises to be bigger than ever. “The fashion show is one of our new events that we’re really excited about,� said Kirsten Barkved, the VPAG’s youth ambassador, who is organizing Riot this year. “We’ll be setting up the catwalk with risers donated from Seaton Secondary School, and the chairs will be lined up along the catwalk like at a fashion show. (Jones) is bringing one of her models and we also have local volunteers. We have also teamed up with Chatters Hair Salon to do the hair and makeup.� With three years already under its belt, the reputation for Riot, which draws primarily on young people living across the Okanagan, has grown. “We wanted to get the word out even more this year as a lot of people heard about it from last year,� said Barkved, herself a creative writing student from UBC Okanagan. “The biggest tool this year has been Facebook and other social networking sites. We used a slew of online media to get the word out.� The response from local musi-

Kirsten Barkved shows a painting done on plywood made by Armstrong’s Ashh Lynn Smith, 19, at the Vernon Public Art Gallery’s recent Take Part in Street Art. The painting will go on display at the Riot on the Roof Saturday night. Mackenzie Jones shows some of her flora and fauna inspired fashions (below, left). Windmills (Cory Myraas) is one of the musical acts scheduled to perform.

cians and bands was particularly impressive. “I had 20 bands e-mail me about possibly performing at Riot. We have booked some incredibly talented local bands with a strong, loyal following,� said Barkved, adding she encourages those musicians not selected to reapply earlier next year. On the bill is Devon Coyote, who just played at Kelowna’s Keloha Music Festival, Kamloops’ band Van

Damsel, Kelowna’s JoyfulDoor, Tiny Robot, and Bjorn Kriel, who placed in the top 10 at this year’s Our Kids Have Talent, as well as Vernon’s Paperboy, Harley David Knife (of Modern Folk fame) and Windmills. “Music is what brings people out to events and this year we teamed up with Cory Myraas, who is known as

Windmills, who was a huge help. He also gave me a lot of band names,� said Barkved. “We’re also really humbled that Devon Coyote is coming to Riot. He has a strong following in Kelowna and is getting a lot of national attention. He likes to pay tribute to his roots.� Barkved also called out to young

emerging artists and students attending Okanagan College, UBCO and CATO (the Centre for Arts and Technology Okanagan) to showcase their visual art, film, creative writing and other projects. Other artists were called upon to create works on large pieces of plywood at the VPAG’s Take Part in Street Art, to be displayed at the Riot. “It’s an intimidating thing to be creative in a public space and to put yourself out there,� said Barkved. “The Riot takes the work of people and puts them in a comfortable space that is affordable for the community to come and see what’s happening in the Okanagan radius, to see something local and alternative.� Organizers have also coordinated a film lounge, with couches donated from Salvation Army. Films include a three-minute short called I Love My Friend, made by UBCO creative writing professor Michael V. Smith, as well as others by Julia Prudehomme, Shannon Lester and UBCO students Taylor Martin and Rebecca Klein. Also in store is an alternative sound performance by UBCO professor Neil Cadger and some of his students, who will demonstrate Cadger’s Soundcan project. “They use microphones strapped to their chests with an MP3 player and amplify the sound with a can that is whirled around in the air to interrupt everyday life with sound,� said Barkved. “It’s going to be really cool.� Revellers can also enjoy the artistic creations of Dawn Tyndall’s body art, a lounge area for poetry and spoken word, and groups such as Vernon’s Sookinchoot Youth Centre, which will showcase their multi-media projects that encourage aboriginal youth to create. In addition, Kelowna’s Tandem Studio have also been given permission to create a new mural while the event is on. Doors to the Riot on the Roof open Saturday at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5, or $10, which gets the purchaser a year-long membership to the VPAG, available at the gallery, the Bean Scene and at the door. This is a public drug and alcohol free event. All ages are welcome.

Duo pays ode to big sky country Morning Star Staff

Saskia Overbeek and Darrel de la Ronde have lived most of their lives in beautiful B.C. They’ve resided in Vernon as well as Revelstoke, but de la Ronde was born on the Great Plains, while Overbeek has Dutch farm blood in her veins. It’s only when they decided to spend a few years living on the prairies as a writing experience, that they got way more than they bargained for. “The music flowed out like No.2 Durham wheat from a grain auger, like a harvest moon dripping red rising ominously over the horizon, like the bitter January wind stripping the warmth out of the red willow thickets in the coulees,” said Overbeek, with a grin. Saskia and Darrel give their former hometown of Vernon a taste of their newfound lives when they

Like their touring mentors, Gary Fjellgaard and Valdy, the duo continue to be troubadours of the Canadian west, performing songs about sailing an imaginary ship across a sea of grass, or riding with a wild rebel yell alongside Métis leader Gabriel Dumont. Their western-centric music covers more topics such as hurtling through watery chasms in a York boat with cartographer David Thompson, and standing on Pier 21 as a Dutch war bride heading for Saskatchewan. All these songs and many more selected “Canadiana” cover tunes make up their act, which has been heard across B.C. and beyond to the prairies, and when they opened for Fjellgaard and Valdy on their respective tours. Saskia and Darrel return to the Schubert Centre Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. Partial proceeds from ticket sales will go to the centre, which offers seniors and community programs as well as a rental space.

REEL REVIEWS

Ceramic installation reads between the lines Morning Star Staff

Ashpa Naira Gallery has a new exhibition: text messaging, a collaborative installation by architectural ceramic and fibre artist Carolina Sanchez de Bustamante and her son Maxwell Sterry. In the exhibition, both artists have explored how the participatory culture of wireless communication and, in particular, text messaging has had a major impact in the world. “Such a very influential and powerful tool has changed the way people communicate, where the world seems to be a lot smaller and more inclusive; where the people’s power has made possible new forms of interaction that were not possible before,” said Sanchez de Bustamente. “The act of text messaging has had a major repercussion on the political world, changing the reality of people around the globe.” The ceramic installation speaks of a desire for a better future, she added.

The Ogopopogo Art Contest invited youngsters from throughout the Okanagan to submit their entries, with the only requirement that the piece be related to the Okanagan’s most recognizable symbol. “We are proud to support various community events in the beautiful Okanagan valley,” said Andy Matysiak, president and general manager of Ogopogo Environmental & Engineering Consultants Ltd., which sponsors the contest. “And we are happy to recognize the beautiful work of those who enriched the Ogopogo as a true Okanagan legendary creature.” After evaluating more than 100 pieces, the contest jury named the following North Okanagan residents as win-

ners: in the one to six age category, first place went to Kimmimela Louis from Vernon, with her sister, Kimora, taking fifth place. Second and third place, respectively, place went to Vernon residents Tomasz Ociepa and his sister, Veronica. In the ages seven to 12 category, first place went to Sophie Wiebe of Vernon, while third and fourth place, respectively, went to Vernon residents Kristen Ciurka and Micah Martens. “Ogopogo Consultants, with supporters, hope this event is a successful and rewarding experience for our children and to encourage them to learn more about our legendary Ogopogo, and thus, our community,” said Matysiak. On Saturday, first place winners will be taken with a parent on a search for Ogopogo, exploring the Squally Point area of Okanagan Lake, said Sophie Wiebe with her winning painting in the ages seven to 12 to be home to the legendary category and Andy Matysiak, president of Ogopogo Envrionmental & creature.

She’s just not that into him

D

ear Annie: I’ve been married for 14 years. The first few, everything was good, and then I stopped enjoying sex. I’ve seen several different doctors and had my hormones checked, and the verdict is that I am in great health for a 39-year-old. I think the main problem is, while I love my husband, I don’t find him attractive. I’m not sure I ever did. I was 23 when we met and had never had a boyfriend. Men had never been interested in me until he came along. He is smart, funny and experimental in the bedroom, so it isn’t like we haven’t tried new things. He would do anything for me. But, Annie, having sex with him is a massive chore. I suspect he knows this, and I hate making him feel bad. I can’t fake passion I don’t feel. To tell the truth, I doubt another man would do it for

never return to that restaurant, and they won’t remember us anyway. But if it had been my place of business, I would have told us not to return until we had manners. What do you say? — Angry and Embarrassed. Dear Angry: We say calm down. Restaurants serve food. People — both children and adults — spill and drop food all the time. While one should not deliberately toss food around, and it behooves parents to keep the mess to a minimum and pick up what they can, it isn’t necessary to leave the floor spotless. Cleaning up is part of the overhead costs, and the management does not expect patrons to do all the work. Dear Annie: I believe you were wrong in your advice to “Frustrated and Alone in Indianapolis,” whose mother is difficult. You suggested he try to find better ways to deal with her.

I, too, have had to deal with a mother like his. I finally had to make the same decision and cut all ties. It was not easy, but I am healthier for it. I don’t miss my mother, only the idea of a mother. Some people are so toxic that you simply cannot have them in your life. — B.T. Dear B.T.: “Frustrated’s” mother sounded like someone who has learned to push her son’s buttons. We felt it might be worth figuring out how to respond differently to her and see whether that helps before cutting her off. We still do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Don’t waste your time arguing with someone about an issue that he or she isn’t willing to budge on. All it’s likely to do is cause you a great deal of discomfort. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Untangle yourself from any mundane involvement with another that distracts you from your own interests. To succeed, be dedicated to your own goals. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Instead of relying on another for support, try to be self-sufficient. Even if this person’s help is forthcoming, you might find that you’re better off without it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Chances are you’ll get better terms if you allow the other party to make the first proposal in a business deal. Associates are apt to treat you more generously than you anticipate.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Certain advantages that you presently possess might be lost or undermined if you exert too much pressure on cohorts. Know when to stop pushing and when to start pleasing. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Keep an open mind and give associates credit for being at least as smart as you. It’s a mistake to discount their ideas and views just because they’re different from yours.

Beginner/Refresher Courses start September 8th Saturdays 9 AM at the Halina Centre

Call 250-309-9733 or 250-558-3709

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) As long as companions are cooperative and making concessions, you’ll be extremely congenial. Should they want what you want, however, it’ll be another story. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Provided you don’t take on something that you’re ill prepared to handle, the probability for fulfilling your ambitious objectives are good. Try to operate within known boundaries. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Unless you can rise above your emotions, think twice before attending a social gathering that will include some people you dislike. Trouble could result if you can’t keep your cool.

THE

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) In order to be successful, it’s imperative that you have staying power. Guard against slackening your effort just when your objective is within reach. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Just because associates might not be totally in accord with your interests, it doesn’t mean they dislike you. In order to see things clearly, don’t let your emotions dictate your reasoning.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder SHALL WE TURN THIS WAY OR THAT? Denis Waitley, a motivational speaker, said, “Don’t be a time manager, be a priority manager. Cut your major goals into bitesized pieces. Each small priority or requirement on the way to an ultimate goal becomes a minigoal in itself.” This week we have been looking at some challenging bidding deals. The first priority is to try to get to game, preferably four spades, four hearts or three no-trump. You think about five of a minor when you are confident that none of those contracts can make. Let’s study the auction in today’s deal. South opens one diamond, North responds

two clubs, and South rebids two diamonds. So far, so easy. But what should North do next? He is thinking about three no-trump, but he does not have a spade stopper. He tries to make this clear to his partner by rebidding two hearts. Yes, South will expect North to have four hearts, but it is the best North can do. (Four hearts on a 4-3 fit might even be the best contract.) This is a responder’s reverse, which initiates a game-force. South has no spade stopper, so cannot bid notrump. Since ace-queendoubleton of clubs is as good as three low cards, he shows secondary club support. North now indicates his diamond support. South sets

diamonds as trumps, and North raises to game. Against five diamonds, the defenders cash two spade tricks, then exit with a heart. South must play the trump suit without loss. The correct play is low to the queen, winning when West has a singleton jack or East holds king-doubleton.

Dix targets pipeline process TOM FLETCHER

provincial officials are scheduled to crossexamine Enbridge before the federal review panel makes its recommendation to the federal cabinet next year. Dix emphasized that the B.C. cabinet can overrule its own environmental review, just as the federal cabinet can. A provincial review of technical issues would have to be carried out to justify refusing provincial permits, he said.

Lawyer Murray Rankin was hired to advise the B.C. NDP. He said the joint review agreement with Ottawa allows B.C. to give 30 days notice and opt out, and the existence of the agreement shows that B.C. does have jurisdiction over whether the pipeline proceeds. Dix said he wants to return B.C. to separate federal and provincial reviews of major projects, like the Prosperity gold mine near Williams Lake, where the B.C.

government issued a permit, but the federal review later rejected it and spurred a costly redesign. Dix met Tuesday with Black Press chairperson David Black, who is backing a refinery at Kitimat to process oil sands crude for shipment by sea. Dix said the idea of refining crude domestically is worth pursuing, but the Kitimat proposal doesn’t change his opposition to the Enbridge plan.

We regret to announce the passing of Mom, after a short but hard fought illness. Born in Winnipeg, the family moved west to Vancouver when she was a child. Bev raised all her children in Richmond, BC. When the kids moved on, Vern & Bev relocated to Langley, where she worked at the BC Cancer Institute at Vancouver General Hospital. Health issues forced her into early retirement. In 1991, Vern & Bev packed up the Winnebago and moved to Vernon to spend their golden years. She will be missed by all who knew her. Predeceased by parents Herbert & Louis Fair, husband Vernon Roy Briskham. Survived by sister Marny Williams, kids Debbie (Sonny), Charlie (Cathy), Terry, Curly, Sandi (Reese), Susan (Wolf), 14 grandkids and 7 great grandkids. Service to be held at the coast at a later date.

EDITH FERN SEYMOUR March 5, 1914 – August 19, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edith Fern Seymour, at the age of 98 years, on August 19, 2012, at Vernon Hospice House. She was predeceased by her husband, John Seymour; her brothers, Joe Pedley, Frank Pedley, and William McLeod; her son, Walter Seymour; daughter-in-law, Lorraine Seymour, and daughter, Phyllis Solland. She is survived by her four children; Bert Seymour, Tina Cole, Shirley Johnson, and Sharron Seymour; as well as grandchildren, great grandchildren, and extended family. In the earlier years of Edith’s career, she took care of the elderly and cooked for multiple families. Edith had an open heart of raising foster children over the years, providing them with a loving, caring home. Her interests were religion, playing the piano, shopping, traveling, socializing, current events, and music. Her Funeral Service will be held at Vernon Funeral Home, 3007 – 28 Street, Vernon, on Monday, August 27 at 11:00 A.M. Interment will follow at Pleasant Valley Cemetery followed by a tea at the Schubert Centre. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
