There’s a real buzz in Armstrong. The gates open today for the 113th annual Interior Provincial Exhibition, and the festival, which is celebrating the honey division, runs until Sunday. “People are getting excited. There’s big hype about it,” said Bryan Burns, IPE general manager. “It’s a great family fair. There’s something for two-year-olds and 85-year-olds.” As always the highlights include the midway, the rodeo, the craft exhibits and the commercial displays. But the primary goal of the IPE is to promote agriculture and remind people about where their food comes from. “There are more beef cows and more dairy cows this year,” said Burns. Melissa Drydyk is preparing for the 4-H cattle competitions and looking forward to checking out the fair.

There will also be a few camels, lions and other exotic critters during the Extreme Wild show. “We always try to find new things and make things exciting,” said Burns. For those into horticulture, baskets of apples, pears, peaches, onions, potatoes, carrots and other fresh produce can be found. Flowers of all varieties are ready to dazzle the eye. “I love flowers and it’s nice to share them with others,” said Nettie Kilba, from Enderby, who enters her dahlias every year. About 153,853 people went through the gate during the five days of the fair in 2011. “You never know what will happen this year,” said Burns, who won’t speculate on attendance. “We expect people will come. They mark it on their calendar.”

Not having to pay almost $3 million to a developer is welcome news for the City of Vernon. The city has won an appeal of a 2011 B.C. Supreme Court ruling that its latecomer bylaw was invalid and Okanagan Land Development Corp. was owed $2.8 million for building a sewer line. “It’s a relief to see that we’re doing things in the proper manner,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. Local governments across B.C. were watching the case closely to see if the city’s regulations were upheld. Rob Sawatzky “The city’s procedures were standard with all municipalities in the province,” said Sawatzky. Okanagan Land constructed a sewer line along Eastside Road to the Outback resort in 2004. It insisted the city should have charged a fee to all 53 benefitting properties along the sewer route, whether they connect to the line or not, so it could be reimbursed the cost of the project. Instead, the city’s bylaws allow for payment towards the developer when someone connects to sewer. In a unanimous decision, three judges with the B.C. Court of Appeal ruled in favour of the city. “The bylaw imposing the latecomer charge is not invalid,” states the decision. “Vernon acted within its statutory authority and reasonably exercised its discretion in apportioning the cost of the excess service on a per unit basis payable at the earlier of subdivision, application for a building permit or connection. The bylaw is not void for vagueness or uncertainty and is not invalid on the ground that it is discriminatory.” A spokesperson says there won’t be an appeal of the B.C. Court of Appeal decision because the next step would be the Supreme Court of Canada. “It’s pretty unlikely they would hear it,” said Reinhard Burke, a Kamloops lawyer. But he insists his client is not giving up. “The lawsuit isn’t over,” said Burke, who questions the city’s move towards hillside guidelines which restrict the possibility of development. “None of the land on the hillside can be developed. As a result, there hasn’t been one single hook-up to the sewer line.”

Lookout fire forces immediate response RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The weather may be cooling off, but not enough to chill the risk of wildfires. Firefighters were on scene of a grass fire at about 10 p.m. Sunday between the Kalamalka Lake lookout and Kekuli Bay Provincial Park. “The threat is still very much there,” said Kevin Skrepnek, an information officer with the B.C. Wildfire Management Branch. “The fire occurred at night when there was no heat.” There has been some speculation that the 0.3-hectare fire may have been related to railway activity in the area. “It wasn’t far from the rail tracks but the cause is still under investigation,” said Skrepnek. Because of the dry conditions, there was a quick response from the Okanagan Landing, Coldstream and Lake Country fire depart-

In preparation for the Interior Provincial Exhibition, Melissa Drydyk leads a friend into a barn Tuesday. Nettie Kilba (left) looks over her flowers as she enters them for the Armstrong fair, which opens today.

Officers ready for the IPE RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

There’s a lot of fun to be had at the Interior Provincial Exhibition and the police want to keep it that way. There will be a considerable RCMP presence at the Armstrong fair, which starts today and runs until Sunday. “It’s family-oriented entertainment but the whole cross-section of the community is there,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. “We need to plan with the safety of everyone that goes there, from the youngest to the oldest.” Beyond regular uniformed police officers, there will also be reservists and auxiliary officers on the site. “There will be a crew working into the early

hours to deal with issues mainly around drinking,” said Molendyk. Points of interest will be the beverage garden and late-night dances. Alcohol consumption can possibly lead to fights and impaired driving. “As we go into a long weekend, officers will be reminding motorists to not drink and drive and to watch their speed,” said Molendyk. Other areas of concern will also be a priority. “There is some theft that takes place and there are some reports of missing kids (wandering off),” he said. The RCMP are satisfied with the measures the IPE has taken to ensure public safety. “Officers have been meeting with the IPE planning committee regularly,” said Molendyk.

Where there’s smoke...

L

umby may be the last bastion of the smoker. Council recently gave the green light to a ban on smoking in areas frequented by children, but if there aren’t kids around, feel free to light up. “They (adults) have a right to use the park as much as anyone,” said Coun. Lori Mindnich on why a full ban for everyone isn’t being initiated. A similar view comes from Mayor Kevin Acton. “Twenty per cent of the population still smokes and we don’t want to be unwelcoming Richard Rolke to special events or having the park used,” he said. Read between the lines and Acton doesn’t want to infringe on those people who enjoy a butt at a beer garden or need a drag in between running bases at a ball tournament. That’s awfully considerate of Acton but has he never heard of a little thing called secondhand smoke? According to the Canadian Cancer Society, just being around cigarette smoke can put you at more risk of developing lung cancer. It can also increase your risk of cancers of the larynx and pharynx. You can also develop heart disease and breathing problems. When pressured, Acton admits some adults have concerns about being around cigarette smoke and all of the chemicals they contain. “They will have the choice to enter those grounds or not,” he said. Pardon me? Did we hear that right? Acton is placing the onus on the majority to walk away

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

and not those who are emitting noxious fumes? That’s a rather unusual concept given that the rest of the world operates the other way. Acton is concerned that a complete ban on smoking in parks will lead to fewer bookings or that beer garden sales will plummet at special events. But has he considered that an even worse economic spiral could develop by casting the 80 per cent aside? Has anyone at the village office also considered that designating adult-only areas for smoking is unrealistic? If teams come to town for a ball tournament or some other event, the players will likely have children with them. They aren’t just going to be shoved off to the playground. They will be around the bleachers and taking in the action on the field. Is that then an adult-only area where smoking can occur or is it a non-smoking zone because kids are present? The rules will be clear as mud for the bylaw officer on scene. Coun. Nick Hodge opposed any regulations at this time. “I thought we were rushing it. We didn’t check with the public about going ahead with this,” he said. Democracy is a wonderful thing, but Hodge must remember that council was elected to lead and there have been numerous decisions — far less important than public health — made without consultation. In the end, this isn’t about beating up on smokers. Tobacco is a legal product and they are within their rights to use it. But as has become the norm in other communities, there needs to be a balance between smokers’ needs and those not wanting to hack up a lung. One would hope Lumby will reconsider its plans.

As the 113th annual Interior Provincial Exhibition and Stampede begins its five-day run today in Armstrong, it’s worth paying tribute to all those people who make it a reality year after year after.... That’s the first thing that impresses one at first glance. It’s been around for well over a century and it still stands for a tradition of community and volunteerism that will likely attract in excess of 150,000 people to the fairgrounds this year. And they will enjoy some of the traditional favourites, like the 4-H shows, the entertainment, the fabulous food and, of course, the rides and games of chance. And then there’s the newer fare like Kids World, the Iron Chef competition, the Trials Stars Bike Show and the West Coast Lumberjack Show, which is actually celebrating its 11th year at the fair. Then there’s the fast-paced, non-stop action of the stampede that joined forces with the IPE several decades ago. The stands are always packed every night for what is on most people’s must-see list. So whether you still call it the Armstrong Fair or the IPE, it’s a sure sign of the end of summer in these parts and a time to celebrate everything the North Okanagan has to offer. As most of us make plans to head to Armstrong and enjoy the sights and sounds and camaraderie of the fall fair, it’s time to salute all the volunteers, board members, staff, exhibitors, vendors and behind-the-scene personnel who make the IPE magically appear every year for all of us to enjoy. This year’s theme is a salute to the honey division, so make sure you Catch the Buzz this week in Armstrong. You’ll be glad you did.

Decision process disappointing

I

am profoundly disappointed in Vernon City Council’s inept decision process regarding the fate of the Okanagan Landing Volunteer Fire Department. The disappointment originates with the apparent secrecy cloaking the decision process itself (an in-camera session of city council), and is only exacerbated by the utterly embarrassing, dismissive, and disrespectful press release broadcast on the local radio stations the very next day to announce the effective termination (i.e. non-renewal) of the city’s contract with the Okanagan Landing Volunteer Firefighters Association. Is it too modern of me to notice that the art of the “thank you” seems to be fading? The city’s press release said “…Vernon Fire Rescue …recognizes the valuable service and high level of dedication of the (Landing Volunteer Firefighters Association) during their contracts with the city.” The sincerity of this statement is cast in some doubt, however, since the press release goes on to demonstrate the city’s recognition of this “valuable service” by terminating the contract, seizing the Landing

WATER RATES I have been a resident of Vernon for over 10 years. Recently there has been lots of discussion over the new water rates. Water is a non-renewable commodity and as such we try our best to practice good practices. I have contacted the utilities entities at city hall and e-mailed the council regarding the water rates as they apply to snowbirds. I as well as many more Vernonites are fortunate enough to enjoy winter outside of Vernon. The water rates as I was told are to be paid at the minimum rate along with sewer charges and recycling ( about $132 for three months) even though my water is shut off for six months. I was told the payment was so the city can maintain the pipe lines. I live in a strata and we are responsible of our own pipelines. Also we get very limited services from the city. I'm sure the other snowbirds are aware that they pay for services they never get. In particular water rates. Other businesses like Telus, Shaw

Department’s new truck, demolishing the raison d’etre of the Landing Volunteer Association (fighting fires), and essentially forcing “all volunteer and career fire fighters into one cohesive fire fighting team”. One may recall that in, I believe, 1965, Federal Defense Minister Paul Hellier severely demoralized the Canadian Military by a similar effort to create cohesive fighting forces. He did this by (1) eliminating the Canadian Navy, Army, and Air Force, (2) creating one “Canadian Armed Forces” with the same uniforms and no historical

have snowbird rates. Why do we pay for service we never use? Marvin Hedden HOPE FOR HAYLEY Vernon is an amazingly supportive community. The article on Hope for Hayley has generated interest from a widespread group, and we are so very grateful for the support. We have had everything from a pensioner donating $10, with expressions of hope, all of the way to the amazing business donation from Natures Fare at $2,000. Thank you so much for the continued support. Each and every single message of generosity and hope gives us more energy to keep up this fight for Hayley, and gives her the strength she needs to keep battling. Daily, we hear of another fundraising activity and we are astonished at the kindness of this community, both locally and globally. Thank you Vernon and thank you to The Morning Star for help-

esprit de corps. The result was severe damage to the morale of the forces, the effects of which were well known for several years. It is difficult to translate the city’s press release into normal human language since the prose used has the look, cadence and feel of the literary product of a person more accustomed to drafting bylaws and legal notices than thank you notes. Had the city council summoned the courage, I hope they would have said to the Okanagan Landing Volunteer Firefighters Association: “Thank you for your decades

ing to spread the word, and for continuing to prove we live in a wonderful, caring environment. Hayley, Mike, Sloan, Kathy and Grant Goldie; Barry and Lorrelei McDougall; John and Shelley Halliwell SMART METERS I recently attended a forum hosted by “The Smart Meter Awareness Group of Vernon.” I wish to thank the group as the forum was well done and very informative. The Liberal government and BC Hydro have forced the ‘Smart Meters’ on the taxpaying residents of B.C. with a “shut up and take your medicine, it’s good for you” approach, while all over the world countless studies have shown this to be totally and absolutely incorrect. If we care about our health, mental and physical, - think cancer, immune disorders, behavioral and learning disabilities, if we care about future generations - think human reproductive issues and birth disorders, if we care about

of commitment to fitness and weekly training, professional standards, dedication to your community, contribution of time and energy of you and your families. Thank you for your incredibly high level of standards and your willingness to go into harm's way for the protection of strangers. Thank you for your contributions to the community in public service events far too numerous to mention. Thank you for always being there, no matter what. You are inspirational for everyone and remind us all of the capability people have to be devoted to one another in safety and security. Thank you.” The rest of the city’s press release contains numerous speculative claims, the veracity of which is not readily verifiable. If the poor quality of the city’s press release, and the inconsiderate and insensitive mode of dissemination of the decisions taken by council are exemplars of the quality of the analyses leading to the fire department shakeup, I do not think that any of us should have confidence that the speculative “economies of scale” and training efficiencies will be achieved. John Stubbs

our safety and personal security smart meters may interfere with pacemakers, hearing aides, security systems and may cause fires, if we value personal privacy, we must be aware that this technology opens wide the door to the collection of personal information by government and other agencies. If we care about the now and future cost of power. If we care about government operating in an open, responsible way instead of serving their corporate masters (follow the $$$). If we care about all these things and if we care about democracy then we owe it to ourselves, our children, each other and Canada to become informed on this issue and to have a voice in how this wireless technology proceeds, always with a mind not only to how it benefits us but also to the inherent perils and risks. I thought it interesting that there did not appear to be any representation from BC Hydro or from the Liberal government in attendance at the smart meter forum. Ruth Keiss

WHAT A RIOT

KIERAN FREY PHOTOGRAPHY

Riot on the Roof revellers enjoy a performance by Kelowna band JoyfulDoor atop the Vernon parkade Saturday night. The Vernon Public Art Gallery event also featured a wearable art fashion show, featuring the flora and fauna inspired creation of Calgary designer Mackenzie Jones, modelled by Morgan Meggait and Bron Johnson (right). Kelowna’s Tandem Studios’ Liz Dumontet and Dylan Ranney worked into the night to complete a new mural that can now been seen on the upper level of the parkade, while visitors also enjoyed live music and painting, visual displays, spoken word, film, a sound installation performance and more. “Riot was a blast, and everyone I run into that went to it says it blew them out of the water,” said VPAG youth ambassador Kirsten Barkved, who helped organize this year’s event.

These guys dig up more than just the blues Vancouver’s Mud Bay Blues Band is part of the live music lineup at the IPE KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Mark Branscombe will never forget the day Elvis Presley died: Aug. 16, 1977. Despite the fact the King was gone, it was the day Branscombe, after answering a guitarist wanted ad in The Georgia Strait, first met up with a couple of south Surrey guys to jam some tunes. Their chemistry clicked, and 35 years later, with a few personnel incarnations since, The Mud Bay Blues Band, so named after a body of water that lies between Tsawwassen and White Rock, is still rocking its interpretation of the blues. Noted as “the band that won’t go away,” Mud Bay was founded and is still led by blues harpist Harold “Mud Bay Slim” Arnold, whose father was a crab fisherman and used to fish the area where the band got its name. A mainstay of the “Delta” blues sound (the Delta being the coastline just south of Vancouver), the band has branched out to include quite a few Okanagan fans. After playing juke joints such as the Blue Gator in Kelowna as well as Lorenzo’s Café in the wilds of Ashton Creek near Enderby, Mud Bay is hitting an even bigger venue –– an outdoor one –– this week as one of the acts playing daily on the Dodge Truck Stage at Armstrong’s Interior Provincial Exhibition. “We’re excited to re-cross paths with people in the Okanagan,” said Branscombe. “We love to make a break out of the city where the air is great and the people are fun.” With a background that goes back to Vancouver’s early punk scene, and every-

Vancouver’s Mud Bay Blues Band, Mark Branscombe (left), Randall T. Carpenter, Harold “Mud Bay Slim” Arnold, Gord Nicholl and Murphy Farrell, returns to the North Okanagan with daily performance at the IPE starting today as well as a gig at Lorenzo’s Café on Friday and Saturday. thing in between, Mud Bay’s sound has been well-honed like a fine whisky. The band’s rhythm section of Murphy Farrell, drums, and Dennis Ingvaldson, bass, played in The Shmorgs, the original band that included punk legend Art Bergmann, while other members have played with a who’s who of the Vancouver rock, folk and blues scene. “Our music is an exploration of roots, Americana and British rock,” said Branscombe. “It’s a response to what we see around us with some roots and blues to it. We also get a lot from the Brooklyn sound such as Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.” And not unlike bands such as The Rolling Stones, the band’s current lineup is pretty close to its original roots, including two founding members who recently returned to the fold, Gordon Nicholl (keyboards) and

Randall T. Carpenter (guitar, mandolin). “We started playing in the pre-Michael Jackson era with just as much groove,” laughed Branscombe. “Our sound is a little edgier than up-the-slot blues bands. The usual fodder for a blues song is whisky, woman and boogie woogie, but we’re in a different space. It’s blues, but not exactly.” An “indie” band before indie was popular, Mud Bay is lucky enough to have three writers who have contributed to its recordings, more recently, Death, Taxes and The Mud Bay Blues Band, and Mudified. “Our first album was done in a weekend,” remembered Branscombe. “We would set up for a day and play until we couldn���t stand up anymore. Then we’d go back and play again.” The band has been working on a new record, and was in sessions at The Paramount studio on the lower east side of Vancouver,

which was recently sold. “We’ll be playing the shows at Lorenzo’s and the IPE to get our chops up, then will get back to recording. We have some places in mind,” said Branscombe, adding the IPE will be a way for the band to break out to a new audience. “We’re especially excited to play for younger people to show what musicians can do actually playing instruments... We treat our performances like a social gathering.” The Mud Bay Blues Band takes the stage at the IPE at 5 p.m. today through to Sunday. Visit www.armstrongipe.com for a full schedule of all the entertainment. The band also visits Lorenzo’s Café, located on Mabel Lake Road east of Enderby, on Friday and Saturday night. Doors open at 6 p.m., with the show starting at 8 p.m. Cover is $10. Call the café at 250-838-6700 to make a reservation.

Arts College to host pow wow KELOWNA –– Nursing students at Okanagan College will be among those learning more about the cultural significance of the pow wow as the college prepares to host the fourth annual Youth Exhibition Pow Wow Sept. 20 in Kelowna. “The students are so excited to be attending, they’re beyond excited,” said practical nursing instructor Dana Susheski. “Aboriginal cultural understanding has become an increasingly significant part of the province’s mandated curriculum, so opportunities like this are really valuable.” Anthropology professor Beryl Amaron is holding two pow wow seminars, one in Penticton on Sept. 19 with elder Arnie Baptiste, and one in Kelowna Sept. 18 with elder Richard Jackson Jr. Jackson, a member of the Lower Nicola Band who has also been acting as master of ceremonies for the Youth Exhibition Pow Wow since its inception, said while many people have seen pow wows, few non-aboriginal people understand their meaning. “The word pow wow means gathering of nations and represents unity,” said Jackson Jr. Once the singing starts, every nation gathers around their drum to sing the same song at once, each in their own language. The result reflects the unity of all things – from the physical world to the spiritual world. “The drum groups perform songs that reflect who they are,” he said. “It’s very empowering. Unity is what it’s all about.” This year’s Youth Exhibition Pow Wow will also feature a brand new

drum handcrafted by local artist Kathleen Bray. The drum is made from cedar, moose hide, and antler horn. Bray designed the drum and has given it to the college’s Aboriginal Club. “The drum shows respect for our four-legged animals, who gave their life to make the drum. The frame and the drumstick represent our plants and trees, and the feather represents the winged ones,” said Bray. “When we put it in the hands of the twolegged, the music represents all the relations of the earth, hence we call the drum the heartbeat of Mother Earth.” James Coble, aboriginal access and services coordinator, said each year the college deepens its understanding and its relationship with local Aboriginal people, which in turn benefits students of all races and cultural backgrounds. “The students themselves really appreciate more public events like this because it helps them to feel more comfortable on campus,” said Coble. “It’s also a real opportunity for some cross-cultural learning for everyone. People may not understand that pow wows are not just for fun. There is a deeper meaning.” The fourth annual Youth Exhibition Pow Wow takes place in the courtyard of the college’s Kelowna campus Sept. 20 and features Jackson along with Iron Mountain and Little Hawk drumming, and Noel Ferguson as Whip Man. Students from schools throughout the Okanagan Nation will be taking part in the dance performances.

Contest recognizes efforts of local students Vernon’s Cole Strilchuk and Cameron FraserMonroe are finalists in national contest Morning Star Staff

When 200 students from across Canada were given video cameras to share the historic milestones that matter to them, the results were education, creative and inspiring. A Harwood elementary school student’s Truth or Dare style history video is now one step closer to a national screening in Ottawa. Through the video camera’s lens, Cameron Fraser-Monroe guides Canadians through the life and times of NDP Opposition leader Jack Layton. Cameron’s in-depth journey, Jack Layton: Your Decision/Ton Decision, features Layton’s biggest failures, greatest successes and most daring actions and then encourages Canadians to vote on which one they think is Layton’s most daring political decisions. Cameron’s video, submitted for Canada’s History Young Citizens program, garnered so many cyber ballots that he is now closer to winning one of six trips to Ottawa. Cameron and Kidston school student Cole Strilchuk, who retraced the journey of a B.C. teacher who trekked across 33 countries in 469 days for mental health youth programs in Michael Schratter: One

Pedal at a Time, are just two of 30 students being recognized nationally for learning history through filmmaking. From coast to coast, 200 students spent countless hours interviewing important people in their city as well as filming historical milestones that mattered most to them and their community. This inaugural project, supported by Great-West Life and the Department of Canadian Heritage through the Youth Take Charge program, connected students from Grades 4 to 11 to historic moments by encouraging them to research, role-play and digitally record

“My peers have... brought the historic places, people and events I had heard of to life.” — Cameron Fraser-Monroe short documentaries or news items that showcased their research projects and how it connected them to their culture and heritage. This year’s 30 finalists come from every province and territory and shared topics ranging from the Canadian Wheat Board to Canada’s Tarnished History of Civil Rights, to the invention of the Jolly Jumper. “Through their efforts, these students have taken ownership of these stories that have shaped the culture and heritage of their communities and our country,” said Deborah Morrison, CEO and publisher of Canada’s History Magazine. “They’ve

made a connection to the past that goes beyond anything they could learn from a textbook, and we hope it has sparked a deeper interest in history that they explore for years to come.” Students say this hands-on style of learning excites them. “This project has really connected me to history in Canada,” said Cameron. “Every time I looked at one of the projects created by other Young Citizens, I saw how rich our history is. “My peers have really brought the historic places, people and events I had heard of to life.” A national panel of judges will now review the 30 videos and have the difficult task of selecting six winners. The six final Young Citizens will receive a trip to Ottawa to participate in the Governor General’s History Awards at Rideau Hall in December where their videos will be showcased at the National History Forum. To view the entries and contest winners, visit www.YoungCitizens.ca. Canada’s History Society is a national charitable organization devoted to popularizing Canadian history. In addition to presenting the Governor General’s History Awards and publishing Canada’s History (formerly The Beaver) magazine, as well as Kayak: Canada’s History Magazine for Kids, the society also produces a number of educational and online programs to encourage more discovery, celebration, and understanding about our rich history and culture.

two halibut recipes that are favourites. Andrea’s Baked Halibut 1 tsp. olive oil 1 cup diced zucchini 1/2 cup diced onion 1 clove garlic, minced 2 cups diced fresh tomatoes 2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil 1 cup diced fresh mango, optional 1/4 tsp. salt and pepper, or to taste 4 halibut steaks or fillets 1/3 cup crumbled feta Preheat oven to 450 F. Heat oil in skillet and sauté zucchini, onion and garlic until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add tomatoes, basil, mango (if using) and salt and pepper. Spoon equal amounts onto halibut

steaks or fillets and top with feta cheese. Place on foil or parchment paper on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Serve on rice. Delicious! Phyllo-Wrapped Halibut Fillets with Lemon Scallion Sauce 2 tbsp. melted butter 4 sheets phyllo dough 2 (5 ounce) halibut fillets Salt and pepper to taste 2 tsp. chopped fresh dill 3 tbsp. lemon juice 1/2 cup whipping cream 2 green onions, finely chopped Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly butter 1 sheet of phyllo dough. Lay another sheet directly on top of the first sheet, and lightly butter it. Repeat

with remaining 2 sheets of phyllo. Cut sheets in half. Season halibut fillets with salt and pepper. Place a fillet near the bottom edge of one of the halved sheets of phyllo. Sprinkle with dill. Fold in the sides of the phyllo, then roll the fillet. Place on a baking sheet, and lightly brush

with butter. Repeat with remaining fillet. Bake in a preheated oven until pastry is puffed and golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, bring lemon juice to a boil in small saucepan over high heat. Boil until almost evaporated.

HUGE END of SUMMER SAVINGS

Reduce heat to medium, and stir in cream. Simmer until cream thickens somewhat. Stir in green onions, season with salt and pepper. Serve halibut on a pool of sauce. Note: Feel free to add asparagus or other blanched veggies to halibut pastry if desired.

Free help available for quitting smoking TRISH HILL Special to The Morning Star

On my break one sunny day last week, I was on the front steps of our building watching people go by. Among those enjoying the sunshine it was a surprise to see two young men searching for cigarette butts on the sidewalk. One of the men managed to find several butts and smoked one after the other, urgently. People have told me about times they’ve resorted to smoking butts, but I had never actually seen anyone do it. I felt sad watching this act of desperation. Why would someone put themselves at risk for serious infections in addition to tobacco-related diseases like cancer, lung and heart disease? Tobacco addiction, poverty and mental illnesses often play a role. Rates of tobacco use and addiction are much higher among the poor and mentally ill. In the U.S., people with mental illnesses consume almost half of the tobacco sold and a recent Canadian study reported smoking rates among the homeless at more than 80 per cent. These populations also bear a dispropor-

tionate burden of tobacco-related illnesses. It can be challenging to treat tobacco addiction among people with mental illnesses who also live in poverty. We often mistakenly assume that dealing with tobacco use may be pretty low on the priority list for people struggling to meet their basic needs. However, research shows many of these smokers do want to reduce or quit using tobacco, often motivated by concerns about their health. It is important to remember that, with the right supports, they can achieve this goal. Mental health workers, social service workers, physicians and pharmacists can all play an invaluable role in supporting their efforts. In B.C., limited finances are now less of a barrier for those who wish to quit smoking. We have free QuitNow Services and financial coverage for nicotine gum or patches and other quit smoking medications through the B.C. Smoking Cessation Program. For more information visit quitnow.ca or speak to your health care professional. Trish Hill is a senior tobacco reduction coordinator with Interior Health.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) The race is likely to be won by the smartest, not necessarily the swiftest, when it comes to a career matter. Be sure to use that thinking cap of yours, so you don’t trip over your own feet. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If you’re alert, you have a good chance of learning something extremely important from a good friend. However, what’s said should be restricted to the parties involved.

friends. If you’re smart, you won’t let it be known which side you really think is right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Spare yourself from calling in an expensive repairman by exercising preventive maintenance. If you play it safe, you won’t be sorry. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Be sure to include an extremely introverted, shy friend in your plans. If the invitation doesn’t come from you, it isn’t likely to be issued at all, because no one else will think of it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) The entire clan is likely to profit when the shopping duties are put in your hands. Your caring nature makes you very attentive to everyone’s needs and wants. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You should take advantage of the opportunity to clear the air with a friend when the opportunity presents itself. Don’t hesitate to talk it out in detail until both parties are satisfied.

THE

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your determination in pursuing your objectives is impressive, but equally important is that others recognize your intentions and make it a point to get out of your way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you believe it is necessary to make a difficult decision that everyone else is putting off, have the courage to stick to your guns and do so. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) This is likely to be the day when you promised yourself you’d embark on carefully laid out plans. If you know each step you must take, there isn’t any reason why you shouldn’t succeed. ARIES (March 21-April 19) By staying in the middle at all times, you’ll fare much better in your dealings with

Bridge by Phillip Alder DO NOT LET FERVOR OVERCOME LOGIC Drew Barrymore said, “There’s a hunger and a fervor that I have, but there’s no person I’m going to push to the side to get where I’m going. I want to create my own road.” Bridge players occasionally bid with fervor instead of cool, calm, collected logic. As an example, look at the North hand in today’s diagram. West opens three clubs, North makes a takeout double, East passes, South advances with three diamonds, and West passes. What should North do now? North should assume that South has six or seven highcard points. (Yes, he might have fewer, but one has to start somewhere. If your

partner constantly holds fewer than six points in this situation, get a new partner, one who holds better cards.) This means that North and South have 23 or 24 points between them. This will not be enough for game unless there is a long suit to run. Well, perhaps South has six diamonds headed by the king-queen, but will that be good enough for nine tricks? No, it supplies only seven: one club and six diamonds. The lack of aces will be fatal. And even if there is an eight-card major-suit fit, which is unlikely, North cannot safely search for it, because now three hearts would promise a five-card suit. North should pass.

If South were in three no-trump, East would lead the club nine, and if West knew his stuff, he would cover with the 10 to drive out North’s king. Then the contract would go at least down three. In contrast, three diamonds makes with an overtrick, losing one spade, one diamond and one club.

Department urges seniors to be fire aware Morning Star Staff

Fire safety is increasingly important as you age. Senior citizens beyond the age of 65 are statistically more likely to die in home fires than the rest of the population and the risk more than doubles for people 75 and older. “Health issues, such as reduced mobility, poor eyesight and bad hearing, can challenge a senior’s capacity to escape from fire,” said Lawrie Skolrood, a Vernon Fire Department deputy chief. “As well, aging causes peoples skin to become thinner and more vulnerable to fire. Reflexes slow down and older people are more likely to be on medication that can cause confusion and make them drowsy. Seniors with compromised physical and possible mental abilities may find it harder to react to, or even realize there is a problem.” The leading causes of fire deaths and injuries among seniors are smoking materials, the misuse of portable space heaters and cooking fires. “The same rules of fire safety and fire survival apply for everyone,” said Skolrood. s )NSTALL WORKING smoke alarms in sleeping areas and on all levels of your home. s 3MOKERS SHOULD have a designated area away from combustible materials, flammable liquids or gases. s !VOID SMOKING when drowsy and never smoke in bed. s 0ROVIDE MORE TIME to escape from a fire that occurs outside the bedroom by sleeping with the bedroom door closed. s3PACEHEATERSSHOULD

be well ventilated and keep them at least three feet away from flammable and combustible materials. They should be unplugged when not in use.

s.EVERLEAVECOOKING unattended. When you leave the kitchen, shut off the stove. “Whether you are young, old or in between, it is the effort

that you put in prevention and in your plan for escape that is going to make the biggest difference in decreasing your risk and being safe from fire,” said Skolrood.

“Health issues can challenge a senior’s capacity.” — Lawrie Skolrood

Timbermen trim Controls for title Morning Star Staff

North Enderby Timber stopped Turn-Key Controls’ 10-game winning streak at a most opportune time Sunday night at Marshall Field #2. With the sidelines packed with spectators, NET shaded Turn-Key 2-1 in a thrilling and spirited Gibson Cup final. Both teams ended the regular North Okanagan Soccer League season with 13 wins, the Timber claiming first by one point. Turn-Key opened the scoring in the 10th minute after Nolan’s Pharmasave Man of the Match Sam Nolan fired the strike of his career past Timber keeper Danny Stein, off both posts before trickling in just over the line. Turn-Key forced a few more minutes of pressure in the first half but the Timber maintained calm and played a very in-control half which resulted in a majority of possession and a number of close opportunities that were squandered in the final few yards. Corey Wallis, in the 38th minute levelled the score after hammering a volley off a Brodie Couch corner, past TurnKey’s Jeremy Kler. NET veteran Graham Ross received his second yellow card of the night 12 minutes into the second half, and was ejected. The Timbermen changed up their formation and focused on a more defensive style. That resulted in zero opportunities for Turn-Key and a much more simple style of play by NET. Corey Wallis gave the Timber the lead in the 63rd minute after he was hacked down inside the 18-yard box, resulting in a penalty kick. He calmly slid the ball past Kler who guessed the wrong direction. Kler will be playing goal for the UBCO Heat soccer team and also suiting up for the volleyball side this season. About seven minutes later, Turn-Key midfielder Evan Moore was ejected after his second yellow. NET coach John Farina was also tossed for arguing a call. Despite a late charge from Turn-Key, the Controls were unable to get their equalizer past Stein who was aggressive all night in cutting off through balls. “We won because we played smart,” said NET veteran defender Andy Stein. “It took us all year to get to this point but the whole squad was on the same page for the win. We were solid from front to back.” Referee was Jasmain Parr, while his assistants were Cyrus Tabar and Nathan Gatenby.

Hockey stars tee it up for KidSport ANDRE LODDER Morning Star Staff

ANDRE LODDER/MORNING STAR

Jerred Smithson of the Florida Panthers follows through on a tee shot in the Vernon Vipers charity golf tournament Sunday afternoon at The Rise.

In a lineup that featured the star power of Aaron Volpatti of the Vancouver Canucks, Jerred Smithson of the Florida Panthers and Edmonton Oilers’ GM Steve Tambellini, it was a group less used to the spotlight that ruled the standings. Sean Matile, the goaltending coach for the Vernon Vipers, and his Texas Scramble team took the first-ever Vernon Vipers charity golf scramble for KidSport in convincing fashion. Matile and teammates Rob Lenoury, Kevin Black and Troy Thibert shot an 13-under 59 at The Rise Sunday, earning Sun Ice tops, sandals and balls courtesy of The Rise. Smithson and his team that included Jeff Wills, Steve Pauls, and Mitch Pauls, took second place on the par-72 course, pocketing fridges from Parnells. The Panthers’ pivot, who took time out of his summer training schedule to tee up for KidSport, was happy to be a

part of the Viper’s first tournament and is looking forward to its future. “Anytime you get a chance to give back to different charities and different events, I think it goes a long ways,” said Smithson. “I know it’s been a great turnout here so far this year, and being the first year, I can only see it getting bigger and I’m looking forward to seeing how big it can really get.” The third-place — Jerred finish was a family affair as current Viper cousins, Aaron Hadley and Adam Tambellini combined with their fathers Benton and Steve, to round out the top-three. Vipers’ head coach Jason Williamson teamed with Volpatti, former Viper Bryce Kakoske, and Cole Benjaminsen from the Maple Leaf Jr. Tour, to finish eighth, earning duffel bags. Williamson couldn’t help but notice

the poor play of the players that were in attendance, particularly in the group that followed them. “That’s why they’re paired up together,” said Williamson jokingly. “Some of them I know aren’t the best golfers, but it’s a good thing they can play hockey.” Volpatti, a former member of the Vipers admitted he wasn’t having the best round of golf but was just happy to be a part of the tournament. “Obviously the Smithson weather’s been nice and The Rise is a very nice and difficult course, having a bit of difficult time today but it’s good,” said Volpatti. Volpatti was happy to be playing a round of golf with a lot of current and former members of the Vipers organization, but he knows the kids are really the ones who will benefit from a tournament like this.

“Being the first year, I can only see it getting bigger.”

Aaron Volpatti of the Vancouver Canucks lines up his tee shot in the Vernon Vipers charity golf tournament for KidSport Sunday at The Rise.

Continued from A30 “We’re all a privileged group of people so it’s good to recognize those kids and the charity is a good thing. It’s good for kids to enjoy their youth and participate in the things they want to.” Third-year Viper Colton Sparrow echoed that statement noting that not everyone gets the same opportunities. “Obviously there are a lot of kids out there that don’t get the opportunity to play the sports that I’ve been lucky enough to play, and some of the guys out here who have been lucky enough to get to the next level. Hopefully with this tournament, we can help some of those kids get to that next level,” said Sparrow. While Sparrow and his team didn’t make the top-eight, he was happy to see so many people taking part. “It’s been a lot of fun, getting to golf with these young guys. Even I have a hero out here. Volpatti is a guy I really look up to, so it sounds like everyone’s kind of got a hero out here, it’s been a lot of fun,” said Sparrow. Lee Ranger from The Rise said that the charity classic was a big success with about 100 golfers. Ranger holds a positive outlook for future years. “We have a three-year, $25,000 goal and we’re well on our way to achieving that after our first year,” said Ranger. Final totals on the amount raised will be announced later. Montreal Canadiens’ goalie Carey Price, who had originally confirmed to play, was unable to play due to a family matter. Detroit Red Wings’ scout Marty Stein was among the hockey celebrities. For more information on KidSport visit www.greatervernonkidsport.com

Cooper defends crown Morning Star Staff

Shelley Cooper won a 2013 range pass and a decent credit in the pro shop after repeating as Ladies Club champion last weekend at the Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club. A longtime member at Spall, Cooper carded rounds of 79-82 for a 161 low gross total. She defeated Mary Lukacs by four shots. “I was just steady,” said Cooper. “I had a good round Saturday and had a few more strokes Sunday.” Mabel Hamilton took the overall low net title at 128, claiming the same prize package as Cooper. Marsha Allen at 172 and Diane Hill at 177 rounded out the top-three low gross finishers in the first flight. There was a field of 55. Sheryll Bissell at 180, Brenda Howard at 181 and Bonnie Taylor at 183 topped low gross in the second flight, while Marion O’Flynn and Debbie Heale, both at 192, and Nadene Shannon at 195, ruled the third flight. Janie Crockett at 202 and Chris Panasiuk and Cheryl Parker, both at 203, topped the fourth flight low gross. Best low net scores in the first flight came from Cindy Hoffman at 140, Carolyn Berube with 144 and Ginger Jalonen at 145. In the second flight, it was Gloria Regier and Linda Bridgeman, both at 138, and Tori Reid at 142. The third flight low net winners were Sylvia Tyldesley-Gore at 139, Marg Wild at 140 and Kathryn Patton at 141. Helen Beatty at 141, Elaine Evans with 144 and Celine Lockhart at 146 were the low net winners in the fourth flight. Weekend long drives were recorded by Tara Brown (2), Bissell (2), Pam Page, Evans, O’Flynn and Parker.

Vipers whittle down camp roster Morning Star Staff

Two games into their B.C. Hockey League exhibition season, and it has been mixed results for the Vernon Vipers. Following a 9-5 goal-fest loss to the Wenatchee Wild Saturday night at Wesbild Centre, the Viper hopefuls settled down to record a 3-3 draw against the West Kelowna Warriors Monday at Wesbild. Vernon head coach Jason Williamson isn’t as concerned about the scorelines as he is about evaluating his prospects, and so far he seems to like what he sees. “It’s exhibition,” shrugged Williamson, when asked about the loss. “Did we want to win? Absolutely. But we were just trying to get a read on some players. “We got better as the game went on. There were a lot of nerves, so that was good to see. And we scored five pretty good goals.” The North American Hockey League Wild, wearing their road black with blue trim, went up 2-0 after just 10 minutes, and pushed the scoreline to 3-0 after one period. The Wild shelled netminder Joe Young for their fourth unanswered goal (three of them on the powerplay) in the second period before Vernon finally came alive with two quick strikes.

Williamson said the Wild fielded a more experience lineup than Vernon, and were further along in their team systems. “They were very quick and they definitely crashed the net pretty hard,” he said. “They definitely had some systems in place and they came prepared, more than the teams up here are ready for in preseason.” Young was relieved by Vernon product Harrison Whitlock after Wenatchee counted the 5-2 goal. Second-year Viper forward Adam Tambellini collected the goal of the night later in the second period, toe-dragging around a defender before going roof daddy over the Wenatchee netminder’s left shoulder. The Wild took a 7-4 lead into the third period. Braeden Russell, Ryan Edwards, Landon Robin and Colton Sparrow, all forwards, completed Vernon’s scoring. Williamson released six players following Saturday’s game – netminders Whitlock and Conrad McMillan, defencemen Wyatt Trumbley and Jayce Polman-Tuin, and forwards Mat Lambert and Sam McMullen. Edwards left the team of his own choosing on the weekend. He was projected to make the team after recording 95 points (35 goals and 60 assists) with the KIJHL Beaver Valley Nitehawks last season. Williamson expects to make further cuts today. The Vipers rebounded with a solid effort against the Warriors. Williamson credited his veterans for turning in a solid effort, and noted the play of forwards Logan Mick and TJ Dumonceaux, a former North Okanagan Knight who

It was a pretty entertaining game.” Defencemen Bryce Eviston and Geoff Crisfield, and forward Nick Josephs handled Vernon’s attack Monday. Colton Thibault, a

Lake Country FC Variform shut down the Vernon Celtic 3-0 in Okanagan Men’s 35+ Soccer League action Monday night at Marshall Field #3. The Celtic season has been marked with ups and downs, and after a few convincing wins, the Celtic got hurt in their battle for playoff seeding by a lower ranked but well-organized Lake Country FC. The visitors started strong and dominated play for the first 20 minutes to take a deserved 2-0 lead. It took until midway through the first half for the Celtic to get more grip on the game, resulting in several chances for Tyler Johnson and Jesse Knight. The 9-6-2 Celtic made some changes during half time and opened the second half with a flurry of attacks. More chances followed but they all were denied by the excellent Lake Country goalkeeper. With 15 minutes to go, the 7-8-2 Lakers countered their way to a third goal, breaking the spirit of the Celtic. Jason Beck had an excellent game on the back line for Vernon, breaking up many attacks and being unlucky with narrowly missing the goal on several long distance efforts.

Tiremen fall to Taco Bell In other 35+ league play, Vernon Kal Tire spotted Kelowna Taco Bell a 3-0 lead before falling 3-2 in a battle of cellar dwellers at Mission #68 Field. The Tiremen (2-13-2) missed several scoring chances before converting twice in the last 10 minutes. David Broadhurst buried an eight-yarder from the left side underneath the keeper for the first Kal Tire goal. Broadhurst then crossed a sweet ball to Bryan Lambert, who finished from 12 yards out, left side. Taco Bell improved to 3-12-2.

Eso wins it for Silver Stars In Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League play, the Silver Stars defeated host Salmon Arm McIsaac 2-1 in a key matchup Monday night. The Stars came out strong and were rewarded when Art Renaud scored at 10 minutes when he picked up a loose ball 25 yards out and hammered it to the top corner with his first touch past a startled Al Bensmiller. The first half was well fought in the midfield with both teams unable to generate good scoring opportunities. Wolfgang Bopp showed up late and subbed on with five minutes remaining in the first half, and was immediately rewarded as he ran unchecked to the sixyard box and nodded in a beautiful header just inside the far post. Jonathon Bugden drew the assist. Salmon Arm dominated the first 20 minutes of the second half with ball possession in the Stars end. Keeper Ted Lurkins held them at bay until the 60th

Brian Eso (Beer Banana Bread Man of the Match) stepped up from his stopper position and fed a perfect through ball to Steve Church who finally beat the offside trap. Church moved in alone from 30 yards out and slotted the ball inside the left side of the net past Bensmiller. The remainder of the game turned chippy as Salmon Arm pushed hard for the tie and the Stars defended fiercely. The Stars moved to 9-5-5, three points ahead of Salmon Arm for the seventh playoff spot. Salmon Arm is 7-10-2 and holds down the eighth and final playoff berth.

Kickers shell Ogopogos 10-0 North Country Appraisals Kickers put together their finest 80 minutes of the season in a 10-0 whitewashing of Big O TireTurn-Key Ogopogos at Marshall Field #2. North Country struck early and struck often opening up a 7-0 lead by the break. Greg Bevandick opened the scoring on a nice pass from Randy Boehm, and then Boehm tallied just minutes later opening the floodgates. Bevandick finished with four goals, while Sergio Sartori (2), Claudio Dibs, Wil Kruiper and Matt Cherrille completed the 9-5-4 Kickers’ attack. Dave Rundall had to make a few good saves as the clock was winding down as Big O never quit despite the lopsided score. North Country has just one loss in their past 12 games. Big O was coming off a huge upset the week before when they shocked second-place Kelowna IGA.

IGA blitzes Bosman 9-0 IGA, meanwhile, rebounded with a 9-0 thumping of Bosman Accounting at Mission #69. Kelowna dominated play with a well-

placed header from Lionel Hoffman and a 25 yard howitzer from Donny Brown giving them a 2-0 lead at the half. IGA’s fluid passing game wore Bosman out in the second half and they added three goals each from Tony Gonzales and Lionel Hoffman, and a historic penalty conversion from Larry Kinakin. IGA moves to 16-2-1, Bosman dips to 4-14. Bosman keeper Pete (The Heat) Richter made several big stops, including a penalty-kick save on Hoffman in the first half. Striker Henk Bosman struck the post on a second-half PK.

Lakers brush back Cantinas Lake Country leapfrogged the Ogopogos into fourth spot with a 3-1 win over Cantinas at Beasley Park. The Lakers (10-6-2) opened the scoring with a heads-up play by Mike Ley, who while everybody watched his shot get stopped by the keeper, followed up by burying the rebound in the corner. Cantinas’ Julien Vernet put a header past Todd Ryder just before the half. Lake Country took over in the second half with Bruce McAuliffe getting the winner. Greg Kilmartin put a long ball across the goal, and a Cantina defender trying to tie up McAuliffe, put it in his own goal. Fred Van der Gaag scored both goals as the Rented Mules 2-1 clipped the Pushor Mitchell Advocates 2-1 at Mission 71 Field. The Leko Precast Camels won their second straight forfeit game, this time over Rutland Spirit. First-place Penticton United won by forfeit over Brandt’s Creek, who defaulted to the Camels last week. The Camels are third at 13-4-1. The playoffs will feature the No. 1 seed versus the eighth, No. 2 versus No. 7 and so on with a semifinal and final to follow. Dates and venues will be announced.

1925 - 2012 It is with utmost sadness, that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Joanne “Hannchen” Pickel, on August 23, 2012, in her sleep, at the Hospice House in Vernon. Mom was born in June, 1925, in Neuses, Germany. Her first marriage was soon doomed through no fault of hers, yet she stayed home to raise 2 children, until they were ready to leave the house. In 1976, she moved to Canada to meet up with an old friend, Herb.This friendship grew into mom’s second marriage and life was finally good to her. While Herb managed certain aspects of large construction camps, such as Mica Dam, Swan Hills, Medicine Hat, etc, mom would always be with him, working in the camp commissaries. A few years after retiring to North Vancouver, Herb passed away and, in August 2000, Joanne moved to Vernon to live with her son and his family. While she was passionate about sewing, being well dressed and organized, gardening and roses, we will remember her most for her unconditional love for her family and her ever-present, infectious smile. She was our supreme source for encouragement, wisdom and inspiration while never asking for anything in return. We will miss her so much. Mom leaves behind her son Herbert Mehl, his wife Inge, who tirelessly supported her whenever the going got tough, daughter Gertraud Schultes (Germany), her sister Gerda (with children Willi (Holger) and Margit (Juergen) with son Max, and husband Georg, all from Germany), grandkids Alexander and Stephanie (Kelowna) and Christoph and Andreas (Germany), great-grandson Max, and many extended family members and friends on both sides of the Atlantic. Thank you to the wonderful staff at the Vernon Hospice House, who made her last few days with leukemia more tolerable. Following cremation, a Celebration of Life will be held at the Pleasant Valley Funeral Home Tea Room, with refreshments and snacks served. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Vernon Hospice House. Cremation and Memorial arrangements were entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home.
