Coldstream firefighters pour water on to a vehicle that caught fire on Highway 6, near Hillview Golf Course, Thursday at about 10 a.m. Traffic was disrupted while emergency services were on scene. The female driver of the van was shaken up but uninjured in the incident.

Kal Tire drives off with arena name RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

An international corporation with deep local roots is expanding its community presence. As of June 1, Wesbild Centre on 43rd Avenue will have a new name — Kal Tire Place. “It’s all about the community,” said Tracy Cobb, communications director for Tracy Cobb Canada’s largest independent tire dealer, which operates in a total of 19 countries. “Vernon has been Kal Tire’s hometown for 60 years and we want to celebrate our hometown.”

As part of the naming rights, Kal Tire will pay $40,000 annually, over four years, to the Regional District of North Okanagan. “They are a great local business and they have shown interest in recreation,” said Tannis Nelson, RDNO’s community development co-ordinator. Just as occurred with Wesbild Holdings in 2008, Kal Tire has been given a $15,000 reduction in the first-year payment to help with the costs of signs for the building. Wesbild Holdings had the option to renew its naming rights contract but it had earlier expressed some reservations about the extent of events occurring at the facility. According to Nelson, the goal of the regional district is to provide an array of recreational opportunities.

“We’re constantly working with promoters,” she said, adding that RDNO had a positive relationship with Wesbild Holdings. “We want to celebrate the partnership with Wesbild. That kind of community support is invaluable.” The soon-to-be called Kal Tire Place has an NHL-sized ice surface with more than 3,000 seats. It also provides a year-round indoor walking area and regularly hosts trade shows and other events. The parking lot is home to the Vernon Farmers Market. “We’re happy to support a facility for active families that encourages sport and healthy lifestyles,” said Robert Foord, Kal Tire president. The agreement includes an option for Kal Tire to renew after four years. “Anything beyond that will be assessed at a future date,” said Cobb.

A Vernon lawyer will spend a year in jail for participating in the activities of a criminal organization. William Mastop, 46, was sentenced by justice Mark McEwan Thursday in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver for activities connected to a notorious North Okanagan gang called The Greeks by RCMP. Mastop pleaded guilty to the charge in December. Crown counsel David Jardine had been seeking a sentence of two-and-a-half-to-three-years in jail, while Mastop’s lawyer, David Crossin, was seeking house arrest in the range of 10-to18-months. “The judge did a thorough, lucid analysis of the issues and came to a different conclusion than the sentence we were seeking,” said Jardine. “We’ll review the decision and see if there’s any merit to an appeal, but I commend the judge for his thorough analysis of this case.” Crown contended in its submissions that Mastop gave search warrant information to members of The Greeks who, in turn, used the information to begin to identify police informants. Crown also stated that Mastop took gang members to a shooting range, and played 75 telephone conversations between the lawyer and gang members. “To quote the judge, Mastop was used as a tool by the gang to get information about some of their gang members in custody,” said Jardine. Crossin was unavailable for comment. The Law Society of B.C. issued a statement late Thursday, saying Mastop is not currently permitted to practice law and his matter remains under investigation. Once the investigation is complete, Mastop’s matter will be sent to the society’s discipline committee who will then decide whether disciplinary proceedings should be taken and, if so, what form they will take. Disciplinary action can range from reprimand to disbarment. Mastop is believed to be the first lawyer in Canada charged, and the first to plead guilty, in connection with participating in organized crime activities.

School continues ‘Pride On The Hill’ legacy ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Gone are the garbage cans lining the hallways to catch ceiling leaks. Absent are the bricks that had cracks and served as windows for students and staff. In its place, on the same site on East Hill, a new $38 million, state-of-the-art Vernon Secondary School. And while students and staff have been enjoying the new digs since January – and while the old VSS is being razed around them – the school was officially opened in an hour-long ceremony Thursday morning. “Going to the original VSS was an amazing experience, even with the missing bricks in the walls and the garbage cans down the hallways because of leaks in the ceiling,” said Sylvanna Wilson, a Grade 12 VSS student and chair of the school’s student voice committee. “Those things helped define our school and the character it had. “Vernon Secondary’s sense of ‘Pride on the Hill’ has always, is now, and will always be incredibly strong, and now we have a new community school to have success with.” The new facility has a capacity of 950 students and is the largest school in the Vernon school district. VSS features 19 classrooms, six science labs, three-bay automotive shop, woodworking area, computer labs, two arts studios, a teaching kitchen, 165-seat theatre, music room, library and large gym that serves as the home court for the school’s Vernon Panthers athletic teams. And, of course, as everybody now knows, the new school comes well equipped with windows, a feature lacking in the old brick building which is being torn down so that playing fields can be established on the old school site. “The windows, in my opinion, are the best feature of the new VSS,” said Erica August, chair of the school’s Parent Advisory Council and a VSS alum of 1989. “I love climbing the stairs to the top of level three and looking out at the amazing view.” Every classroom has large windows to capture daylight and wall-to-ceiling curtain windows are featured in the library and commons area. The commons area replaces the old levels which August said divided the students. Now in place is an area that promotes student unity.

LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR

The ribbon is cut and Vernon Secondary School is officially opened by former principal Morris Vardabasso (from left), interim principal Tony Dolinar, Grade 12 student Sylvanna Wilson, MLA Eric Foster, education minister Don McRae, school board chairperson Bill Turanski, PAC president Erica August, school district superintendent Bev Rundell, and school district secretary treasurer Randy Hoffman. “The whole building is inviting,” said August. “Our new school becomes a community within the walls.” As parents, August added that they are impressed with the school’s Go Green Project which includes water flow stations, a compost system, community garden, greenhouse and improvements to wheelchair accessibility. “It is currently one of the most modern, technologically and environmentally advanced schools in the province,” said Bill Turanski, chairperson of the board of trustees. “It was designed to be a bright, healthy spacious and exciting place to learn.” On hand for the opening was provincial education minister Don McRae, who told the students and staff that they were worth the $38-million investment. “You have an opportunity to set a legacy,” said McRae, announcing he was “minus

two years old” when the original VSS was built in 1968. “The old VSS had a great reputation. I challenge you to take that reputation to the new school and build on that legacy.” Other dignitaries on hand for the opening included school board superintendent Bev Rundell, trustee Mollie Bono, who welcomed everyone on behalf of the Okanagan nation, and former principal Morris Vardabasso, who retired at the end of January after serving one month in the new facility. Vardabasso praised the people involved in the design and planning of the new school when the idea first came to light 10 years ago. Rundell gave credit to students and staff for having “no outside field to work with” for two years, and for moving from the old school to the new facility in mid-year.

“If it comes out 51/49, that creates more of a problem than a clear direction either way,” he said. But while Macnabb is urging residents to vote no matter their view, he supports constructing the runing track and sports fields. “It can bring young people to the community,” he said. “We don’t want just a stagnant retirement community.” But Macnabb points out that many seniors are active and want amentities where they can walk, run or pursue other activities. “If it touches a cord through ages, it is fantastic,” he said of the proposal. Macnabb also supports the location, which is being leased from the college for $1 a year. “I can’t think of a better synergy than having it at the college,” he said, adding that there is the potential for new courses while large events can use existing services at the campus. “It will be a great entrance to the community.” Information on the referendum and polls can be obtained at www. rdno.ca.

Soccer rallies behind complex RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Support for a proposed sports complex is growing in Greater Vernon. Both the Vernon Soccer Association and the North Okanagan Youth Soccer Association have endorsed borrowing $7.5 million for a running track and sports field at Okanagan College. “We are watching sports organizations work as a team,” said Tannis Nelson, Regional District of North Okanagan community development coTannis Nelson ordinator. “There’s an indication from organizations that this is something the community needs.” Both soccer associations say the facility will increase the quality of life in the community and encourage participation among all ages. “Our belief is that the development of a recreational facility at this site will help the Greater Vernon area host larger events and thus have an economic impact that will benefit the local business sector,” states Frank Rennick, NOYSA chairperson, and Akbal Mund, VSA president. “We also understand that if we lose this opportunity to build this facility, the future plans for recreational development does not include a regulation-sized track anywhere within the city limits of Vernon.” Beyond the soccer associations, the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce recently encouraged residents to vote to borrow $7.5 million in Saturday’s referendum.

Taking a look downtown

I

expected a desolate moonscape when I traversed the maze that is currently downtown Vernon. Leaving the car behind to avoid the mayhem that is currently the revitalization of 30th Avenue from 33rd to 35th Streets, I walked to my destination — Yes, actually walked. And then it hit me. Everyone else was walking too. People were enjoying the sunshine as they used their feet to get to wherever they needed to go. What a novel idea. I have to say, I am digging downtown right now, and we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s to come. When the city announced it was revitalizing the “unfinished” end AT RANDOM of 30th Avenue, I was on Kristin Froneman board, as a taxpayer and as a supporter of downtown. I know, it seems odd to enjoy the current dust-filled landscape, the lack of trees, which I hear will be replaced, parking spaces, and the detour routes, but that’s the point. People are finally paying attention to downtown because they are walking its sidewalks, and observing our most central neighbourhood. The shops are still doing business, and the pedestrian traffic is making downtown look more lively. Hmmm - we may be on to something here. I’m not saying we should rip up our streets and trees every year, but we could try to leave our cars at home or a few blocks away and really see our downtown for what it is — the place that defines our city. And yes, I have to confess, there’s been times that I have taken downtown for granted. Maybe I’ve shopped at one of those big-box stores north of town because it’s more convenient and a little less expensive, or avoided paying a parking meter for a crowded, stress-filled parking lot. (Not much of a trade-off if you ask me.)

But I love downtown and try to give it my patronage as much as I can. And if that means walking a few blocks, then I’ll put on my sturdy shoes and walk on. After all, if I hadn’t crossed the street by foot the other day, I wouldn’t have noticed that new restaurant that is opening where Okanagan-Oyama Sausage used to be, or bumped into an old acquaintance also enjoying the sunshine. That is what a downtown should be — a place to meet up with your neighbours, support the merchants who have the guts to start a small business in our town, shop for something unique, sip a latté that is actually good, and eat something that is not generic, deep fried and placed in a bun with a side of fries. Vernon’s downtown offers all that and more. Revitalization was agreed upon by the merchants/building owners on that end of town (the ones footing a large chunk of the bill) because they saw what it has done for the rest of 30th Avenue. The wider sidewalks (with trees!) benches, bike racks, bollards, and all important lighting not only make downtown more attractive, but safer. It allows for more outdoor cafés, pedestrian traffic, street entertainment, and business overall — all things this town has been screaming for since I arrived here 13 years ago. With the approach of summer, and the hordes of tourists the Okanagan attracts, 30th Avenue could very well become a smaller microcosm of what Robson Street, Government Street, Queen Street West or Whyte Avenue are in Canada’s larger cities — a place that attracts new businesses, diners, shoppers, culture vultures and even those lookie loos who are just curious of what we have to offer. But the city, downtown business owners, and advocates in the Downtown Vernon Association can’t do it all alone. They need us locals to support our downtown, to park the car, get out and walk. Shop. See what lies down the road ahead.

If the advanced polls are any indication, and hopefully they are, there should be an encouraging turnout for Saturday’s referendum on borrowing up to $7.5 million for a running track and sports field at Okanagan College. On March 27, some 1,225 ballots were cast in the first advanced poll, and then a further 1,445 people cast ballots on Wednesday in the second and final advanced poll. The numbers are “higher than expected” say officials and that’s a good thing as the community decides whether to make the investment in this facility or not. Let’s hope people weren’t going to the advanced polls strictly for convenience purposes and Saturday’s vote actually exceeds expectations. Democracy only works when people take part in it and we encourage all residents of Greater Vernon to get involved in this important decision on our future, because, well, it is our future. Whether you agree with the vision or not, a lot of people have invested time and effort, and yes, money, to get this proposal to the stage where we get to have our say – to not exercise our duty to vote would be wrong on so many levels. The debate of pros and cons has taken place in the coffee shops and by the office water coolers across Greater Vernon, not to mention the letters to the editor pages of this newspaper, it is time to make your mark and help decide your community’s future. Polls are open Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Priest Valley Gym, Coldstream Elementary, BX Elementary and Ellison Elementary. Please vote.

LONG-RANGE PLAN The North Okanagan Sports Society was formed in January 2013 to bring together partners (all sport organizations, all levels of government, community and volunteers) to enhance sport and recreation in the North Okanagan. While we have not been involved in the organization, planning or decisions on the community sports facility planned at Okanagan College we do support the development of sport and recreation infrastructure along with the ability to host events for the betterment of our community. One of our strategic initiatives is the development of a 20 to 30-year facility plan for sports and recreation. We expect to develop this plan over the next 18 to 24 months. In the meantime, we encourage you to become informed and vote in the April 6 referendum. Akbal Mund, president North Okanagan Sports Society IT ALL ADDS UP I would like to address all of the property owners. By now, you should have received a nice, colourful brochure in the mail pushing the sports field. As a result of receiving mine, it created some concerns. For example, how much did this brochure cost? I also need to stress that I feel the information on the cost to taxpayers in the brochure is not entirely accurate. In the brochure, it states that it will cost about $15 per year for an

complex, not a facility. Talk about penny wise/pound foolish thinking. Both NORD and the city have dragged their feet over this issue and have boxed themselves into a litigation corner and now hope this new

average home in Greater Vernon. That is absolute baloney. If you go to RDNO's website (www.rdno.ca/communitysportsfacility) and do your own calculations, you will see that $15 per year represents an assessed home value of less than $200,000. Besides an apartment or small condo, you would be hard pressed to find a home in Greater Vernon that is assessed at $200,000 or less. I live in Coldstream and my cost will be more like $55 per year. It isn't that much to fork out but the trouble is, this is just one of many other things that have been built in the past number of years. For example, the new library and the sportsplex, the performing arts centre, etc. These things all start to add up after awhile. Plus, let's not forget there will be operational costs and, as we all know, these costs will continue to rise. I am very annoyed by all of this as I feel we are being pressured by RDNO and special interest groups. I urge homeowners to do your homework and vote no to the new athletics facility.

nity's future and have continued to defer forward vision regarding infrastructure improvements and responsibility of maintenance of what we have, and providing facilities that will draw business and families to Vernon. Too many short-term opinions have been expressed with little thought to the future of Vernon. This referendum is about providing and planning for you, your kids, grandkids, and the future viability of attracting business and families to Vernon. If you choose to use it yourself, it may help alleviate health care costs and overcrowding at VJH. The no voices have made it clear they are happy letting our town and facilities continue to die off and fade away. The time for leadership and growth in our city is now and this needs to be a start in a forward direction. R. Wilson SHOW SOME VISION I have been training with the Vernon Track Club in Polson Park for seven years and I can tell you there is rarely a time when people are not using that facility.

This is not something just for the Vernon track or football clubs. This is something the whole com-

Consider the big picture

here's been a host of letters pro/ anti re: new sports “facility." Let's be realistic in the usage of “facility." The proposed “sports facility” is not a facility. Kamloops' McArthur Park is a sports facility (complex). To see the chamber of commerce take up the rah rah for this Band-Aid solution of “sports facility” is laughable at best. Where have they been along with NORD, the city and others in really looking at long-term planning and benefits to the Greater Vernon sporting world needs? Uh, hello. Kin Race property along with adjacent properties owned by NORD/city are quite adequate to host a true sports

to resolve and find an amicable solution to relocate Kin Race to a new location, even if we the taxpayers have to help via an increase in our taxes. Spending almost $8 million now is totally short-sighted when one considers the big picture and an opportunity to have a true sports complex as opposed to a “new facility.” I for one, on fixed income, would not be the least bit upset to have my taxes increase to accommodate a sports complex. It's not for me. It's for my grandkids and their children. Think long term. See the big picture. Joe O'Hearn

munity can benefit from. A track provides a safe alternative for people to walk on and it is softer than concrete so joints have less impact. People believe that our (Polson) track is adequate. However, it is not regulation size, the surface becomes a hazard with rain, and its current location means it's not safe to use in the early mornings or late evenings. Fifteen dollars a year is nothing compared to the benefit that this facility can have. I urge you to take initiative and vote yes. My biggest fear is that if this facility gets shut down, the interest in track and field in Vernon will decline. I can say without a doubt that I would not be where I am today without the track club. For the past seven years, I have based every decision I make on how it will affect my running. I have competed at the highest levels provincially, nationally, and am currently getting an education while competing in a sport that I have dedicated so much time to and has given me so much in return. I believe a track will inspire future generations the same way it has inspired me. I know some people can not be persuaded but for those of you conflicted with what decision to choose I ask you to consider this. Can the cons really outweigh the pros? The argument for saying no is being repeated by the same

people, whereas the pros come from a diverse group of community members who want a positive change for Vernon. Old, young, athlete, or not, this track will benefit all. There is no risk in voting yes. However, if you vote no, you're risking not allowing this community to become a better version of itself. Sarah Bailey

There’s good news for local literacy advocates. The Junction Literacy Centre has had $30,000 in provincial funding restored after it was cut in February. “It’s terrific news,” said Debbie Schiller, executive director. While programs were never at risk, there was a concern that the staff time required to co-ordinate the various efforts would be negatively impacted. The $30,000 the Junction received from the government came via Decoda Literacy Solutions, a non-profit agency that supports literacy in B.C. Decoda’s funding from the Ministry of Education has gone from $2.5 million to $1 million a year. However, the ministry recently decided to restore the $1 million, which means Decoda has

When the cuts were first announced, Junction rallied the community and organized a protest. “Many people wrote letters, sent e-mails and advocated in other ways to support this effort,” said Schiller. “My sincere thanks to them, The Morning Star and our MLA Eric Foster for the lobbying efforts. They worked.”

Unknown cause for apartment fire richard rolke Morning Star Staff

What started a fire at a Vernon apartment building will never be known. Investigators say the cause for the blaze Sunday at Capri Gardens on 35th Avenue will be officially listed as undetermined. “There are a lot of possibilities but no evidence,” said Lawrie Skolrood, Vernon deputy fire chief. The fire started on a mattress in a bedroom in one of Lawrie Skolrood the second-floor units. “A lot of the evidence went with the fire,” said Skolrood. “We have a good idea of the cause but we can’t prove it.” About $200,000 in damages were done to three units and hallways. During the fire, about 75 tenants had to evacuate the building and they were sent to a hotel overnight because of extensive smoke. Most of them were allowed back into their units Monday afternoon.

It was projected that power could be back on by 4 p.m. The boundaries of the outage were east of College Way, south of Pottery Road, west of Buchanan Road and north of Cosens Bay Road. “It’s a large area,” said Sharman. Among those impacted were Vernon Secondary School, Coldstream Elementary and Kalamalka Secondary. Sharman says there is little that can be done to avoid incidents where vehicles come in contact with the power grid. “When something like this happens, we are just happy that no one is injured because there are live lines involved,” he said.

Lumby debates increase at treatment facility richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Lumby will determine if it can absorb septic waste from outlying areas. A septic disposal operator has asked council to allow him to take waste from rural Lumby and Cherryville to the village’s sewer treatment facility. “Can our lagoon handle that sludge? This has to go through the solid waste management plan for review,” said Coun. Lori Mindnich. Not only does the village have to consider the costs for possibly expanding the facility to accept septic waste, there is a concern about the quality of the sludge and whether it would

The Village of Lumby favours expanded economic activities in a neighbouring community.

Budget fails to attract crowd average property owner being $20. Of the three per cent tax increase, two per cent will go towards financing capital works and one per cent is dedicated for equipment reserves. Operational costs, such as labour, have been covered through internal efficiencies such as not replacing some vehicles and integrating the parks department with public works. Sewer user fees will increase by 1.84 per cent in 2013. The funds will go towards recapitalization. User fees for water are projected to increase by 3.49 per cent and the funds will go into reserves for future works. It’s anticipated that council could adopt the budget April 15.

No residents showed up for the city’s 2013 budget input session Tuesday. “Either people trust our judgement or they are complacent, I don’t know,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. “We have never typically had an outpouring of interest Howie Cyr in the budget process.” The budget calls for a three per cent increase in taxes, with the impact for the

For the first time since an agreement was signed five years ago, students from India are participating in an exchange program with the School of Nursing at the University of B.C.’s Okanagan campus. The visitors are from the Royal Institute of Nursing (RIN) — a school located in Batala, in the Punjab state. Students Kamalpreet Kaur and Sukhmanpreet Kaur are in their final year of the three-year General Nursing and Midwifery program, while Parminder Singh is in his second year of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. They and their vice-principal Rajwant Kaur Bajwa are in Canada for about six weeks. Through a partnership agreement between

“We’ve also taken them to some community practice sites.” — Deborah McCullough

the School of Nursing and the Global Education and Charitable Trust, which operates RIN, nursing faculty from UBC visit India for a five-week period each year. Last year, Deborah McCullough, associate professor of nursing, and fellow faculty member Louise McIntosh travelled to Batala and worked with the staff and students from RIN to organize a geriatric nursing seminar for all students, teachers, and nurses in the area. In previous years, UBC faculty have organized health fairs for residents in remote villages. McCullough stresses the partnership is about sharing ideas to improve health care, especially for those living in remote areas. The Global Education and Charitable Trust is run by four brothers originally from Batala. The brothers wanted to establish a nursing school to support their community in India, and to do that they needed a partnership with a university. They chose UBC’s Okanagan School of Nursing because of its reputation for delivering an outstanding nursing curriculum. “We are very excited to have the students with us in the Okanagan this year,” said Barbara Brown-McKenzie, associate professor of nursing, noting that while the two institutions have had an agreement since 2008, this is the first year students have made the trip to Canada. So far, the visiting students and their teacher have sat in on nursing lectures, participated in seminars, student presentations, clinical labs, and simulations. They have visited a number of practical settings including UBC Okanagan’s health centre, and hospitals in Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton and Oliver. “We’ve also taken them to some community practice sites such as the hospice, Cottonwood Care Centre, Vernon Community Care, and other types of care facilities,” says McCullough.

Oilers scoop up Smithson Graeme Corbett

As if this week didn’t hold enough anxiety for Vernon’s Jerred Smithson. Already expecting the birth of his first child with fiancée Jaymie Hackman, Smithson, a centre with the NHL Florida Panthers, got a call from GM Dale Tallon Wednesday saying he had been traded to the Edmonton Oilers. The Panthers received a fourth-round pick. Hackman, a former Kal Laker tennis star, was expected to be induced that night in Sunrise. “You can’t imagine what’s going on in my head right now,” Smithson told The Morning Star shortly after the trade. “It’s mayhem.” Smithson, a 34-year-old defensive specialist, spoke briefly with Edmonton GM Steve Tambellini about the trade, which helped put his mind at ease. “He welcomed me to the organization and the team, and they were very understanding of my situation. It’s family first. “It was nice to be wanted. Anytime you get traded there’s lots of things going through your mind.” Smithson had three goals and two assists in 35 games for the Panthers, but his primary value comes in the faceoff circle, and on the penalty kill. He led the Panthers with a 54.8 faceoff percentage, which will immediately improve the Oilers’ leagueworst 45 per cent. Edmonton coach Ralph Krueger told the media: “Smithson will add to our defensive structure. He’s a 53/54 per cent faceoff guy who brings size and depth into our group.” — Jerred This is Smithson’s fourth NHL team, and second in two seasons. He was dealt to Florida from Nashville at last year’s trade deadline. He said being traded for the second time doesn’t make the process any easier, especially with Hackman about to go into labour. “If anything, it’s night and day,” he said, comparing the Nashville trade to Wednesday. “It’s just the timing. We’ll make it work. That’s the game of hockey and you have to be able to adapt.” Tallon told the Miami Herald: “I feel bad about that, he is a solid pro and a classy guy. “I have to think about the long-term future of the franchise. That’s the business

Sometimes it sucks. You’re dealing with family and friends. We told him we would do everything we can to help.’’ Smithson doesn’t expect to line up with the Oilers’ young guns like Taylor Hall or Jordan Eberle. If anything, he hopes to balance their finesse and firepower with grit and a workmanlike effort. “It (trade) won’t change anything I do. I’ve been Smithson playing the same way since I came in the league,” said Smithson, who will become a free agent this summer. He is in the final year of a two-year $1.6 million contract. “The Edmonton Oilers and their history and direction they’re going in, I’m excited to be part of that.” Smithson, who skated with the BCHL Vernon Vipers during the lockout, went undrafted after a five-year WHL career with the Calgary Hitmen, where he accumulated 111 points (47-64) in 319 games. He has 95 points (38-57) in 578 career NHL games. Meanwhile, the Panthers also lost forward Mike Santorelli, an ex-Viper forward,

Santorelli told the Herald he is excited about the opportunity to join a Winnipeg team that leads the Southeast Division. “I’m grateful for the opportunity Winnipeg is giving me and I look forward to helping them out,’’ said Santorelli, a 27-year-old Vancouver product. “It’s an exciting time there. It’s a great place to play. I hope I can help as much as I can.’’ Santorelli led Mike Vandekamp’s 200304 Vipers in scoring with 43-53-96 in 60 games.

Siddall’s spirit lives on at Ice Breaker Morning Star Staff

Morning Star Staff

$

www.vernonmorningstar.com

They’ve changed the name of their annual Ice Breaker lacrosse tournament for good reason. The Armstrong Shamrocks of the Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League will hold their inaugural Owen Siddall Memorial Ice Breaker starting tonight at Hassen Arena. Siddall, a laugh-a minute goaltender, died last Thanksgiving at his home in Armstrong. He was 46 Tourney director Chad Pieper, a goalie who was close to Siddall, said the name change was a given. “We decided to name the tournament after Owen, because every year Owen loved this event in which he got to play lots, and meet fellow lacrosse players from the other teams,” said Pieper. “In talking to the teams attending, they all remember Owen Siddall Owen and his trademark kilt. He will definitely be there in spirit this weekend.” There are seven teams in the Siddall Memorial with the Thompson-Okanagan defending champion Kelowna Raiders taking on the Maple Ridge Attack in the 6 p.m. opener. “The Attack represents the West Coast Senior C league and rumors have it they have bolstered their lineup for the tournament with former Shamrock Ian Gowland,” said Pieper. There are two entries from Prince George – the Stylers, who will be here for the sixth straight year and the Bandits, returning after a three-year hiatus. The Spruce Grove Slash also make their annual trek to Armstrong with a combined Senior B-C squad. The Kamloops Ratters and Shamrocks round out the Ice-Breaker roster. The Shamrocks have added a few bodies from the now defunct Vernon Tigers. “We have had Brock Taylor and Brennan Plante come out and join us this season,” said Pieper. “They are both good additions to the club and have been working very hard. The Shamrocks have also added (Shamrock) junior grad Kyle Versteeg who has impressed everyone so far during training camp. “We lost a few guys this year due to work and retirement but we added a few new guys that will help out with the depth of our club.” Kamloops battles the Stylers tonight at 7:30, followed by the Bandits versus Spruce Grove at 9. The Shamrocks and Bandits open Saturday play at 8:30 a.m. with Kelowna meeting Spruce Grove at 10 and the Rattlers taking on the Attack at 11:30. There will be a coaches clinic from 1-3 p.m. followed by a tilt between the Stylers and Raiders. The Bandits play the Rattlers at 4:30 p.m., while the Slash face the Attack at 6 and the Shamrocks dance with the Stylers at 7:30.

Rockets cap rally WARREN HENDERSON Black Press Sports

KELOWNA – Wracked by injuries and down three games to none, the Kelowna Rockets dug deep for an unlikely comeback in their first-round Western Hockey League playoff series. Now, with little time to rest or savour their dramatic Game 7 triumph over the Seattle Thunderbirds, the Rockets are in the process of reloading for their next challenge – the Kamloops Blazers. Kelowna will host the Blazers Saturday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal series. “They’re a very good team, we’ve seen them all year long and they’re a challenging team to play against,” said Rockets’ head coach Ryan Huska of the Blazers. “We’re going to have to regroup quickly and get ready to play them.” Injuries have taken their toll on Kelowna as the Rockets will open the second-round series with as many as seven regulars out of the lineup, including three defencemen. With a healthy roster, the Rockets – who won 52 games and finished ahead of Kamloops to win the B.C. Division title – would have likely been a slim favourite to take down the Blazers in round two. As it is, Huska said his players will once again need to find ways to overcome the odds. “I think both teams were comparable during the regular season and it showed in the games we played against them,” said Huska, whose team won four of 10 games against the Blazers, with two losses coming in overtime. “But with the situation we

All-stars ice Avs Morning Star Staff

find ourselves in, the injuries we have, they have to be considered the favourite. So we have to continue to believe in ourselves and play as a team like we did against Seattle.” It was just that belief that Huska said carried his club to its historical first-round comeback. The 2013 Rockets join the 1996 Spokane Chiefs as the only teams in WHL history to come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series. The clincher came in dramatic style Wednesday at Prospera, as Tyson Baillie converted a cross-ice pass from Madison Bowey at 5:10 of overtime to push the Rockets to a 3-2 victory before 5,518 fans at Prospera Place. Baillie’s winner was his third goal of the game and came after Seattle’s Luke Lockhart had scored with just seven seconds left in regulation to send the teams to an extra period for the fifth time in the series. “It’s unbelievable,” said an elated Baillie after the game. “Being down 3-0 in the series, we came back and won three hard games. Of course, this one had to go to overtime. We had the character to pull it off.” Baillie, a 5-foot-10 centre who leads the Rockets in playoff scoring with seven goals and 12 points, looks forward to Saturday. “We’ve had a lot of hard battles against Kamloops this year,” said Baillie. “We just have to find a way to shut down their top scorers and we should be good.” Forward Carter Rigby and defenceman

Mitchell Wheaton are expected to miss the rest of the playoffs; forwards Colton Sissons and Rourke Chartier and d-man MacKenzie Johnston are expected to miss the second-round series; and d-man Jesse Lees is day-to-day after sustaining an injury in Game 6 of the Rockets-Thunderbirds series. Blazer forward Tim Bozon is still recovering from a hand injury, sustained in a fight with Brandon Magee of the Victoria Royals in Round 1, and he might not be able to return in Round 2. Game 2 of the series will go Sunday at 5 p.m. at Prospera Place, with Games 3 and 4 scheduled for Kamloops on April 9 (Tuesday) and 10.

can come and how quickly you can lose it. We’ve lived to fight another day.” On Tuesday, the Warriors overcame a 4-1 deficit and Reid Simmons scored at 16:39 of OT in front of 950 fans at Royal LePage Place. Penticton struck the post 10 seconds into overtime and missed two breakaways. Ex-Viper Marcus Basara, David Pope and Max French scored in a nine-minute span in the third period to pull the Warriors even. Said Penticton head coach Fred Harbinson: “To be honest I thought we probably deserved more to win last night then the night before. We’re up 3-1 and we have to be pretty excited about that.” A Game 6 would be played tonight at

Royal LePage Place. The winner meets the Surrey Eagles in the finals. Trail Smoke Eaters’ forward and Interior Conference MVP Brent Baltus has made a change in destination for his college future and will suit up for the Michigan Tech Huskies in the fall. Originally committed to the University of Alaska-Anchorage, Baltus opted out when the school chose not to renew the contract of head coach Dave Shyiak. Baltus, a Nanaimo native, led the Smokies in scoring this season with 24 goals and 27 assists despite playing just 47 games. He was named winner of the Vern Dye Memorial Trophy as conference MVP after a poll of BCHL coaches.

Warriors avoid sweep with comeback Morning Star Staff

Win three straight games against the defending B.C. Hockey League and national junior A champions and move to the finals. That’s the huge challenge the West Kelowna Warriors faced starting Thursday night in Penticton against the Vees. West Kelowna trailed the series 3-1 after a dramatic comeback 5-4 overtime win Tuesday night. “It’s pretty straightforward,” said Warriors’ head coach Rylan Ferster. “We won a game we had to win, now we have to go out there and find a way to win another. Let’s go out there and win a shift and then go from there. Playoffs is so much about momentum, how quickly it

The 2002 Okanagan All-Stars stopped the Kootenay Avalanche 5-2 in Sunday’s final of the third annual Osoyoos Desert Classic Spring Hockey Tournament. Vernon’s Ben King, Anne Cherkowski and Lochlan O’Keefe, played for the All-Stars, who came from behind to stop the Lower Mainland 8-6 in the semifinals. The Okanagan crew trailed 5-2 to the Coastal side with 10 minutes remaining. The final was tight until late in the third period when the better conditioned Team Okanagan scored three quick goals. The North Okanagan Kingfishers held off the Kelowna Heat 4-2 in 2005 spring hockey play Saturday in Winfield. JJ Milne paced the Kings with a hat trick and Erik Pastro added the single. Zack Casagrande, Seth Burton and Zac Milne chipped in with assists. Team defence was strong in front of goaltenders Logan Killingbeck and Austin Seibel. “The kids skated hard and our forecheck was much improved,” said Kingfisher head coach Tim Milne. “We’re doing our best to get game-ready for the Spring tournament season.” The Kingfishers, comprising players from Vernon, Armstrong, Enderby and Salmon Arm, head to Kamloops this weekend for the AAA Pirate Challenge.

Under 15 Girls sip fourth at Slurpee Morning Star Staff

The Vernon U15 Girls bowed 1-0 to Calgary in Easter Sunday’s bronze-medal final of the Lake Country Slurpee Soccer Cup Ice Breaker at Beasley Park. Vernon took control right away, pushing Calgary into their own end playing aggressively without any results. Calgary made it count on one of their few rushes just before the half. “The girls came ready to play every game and showed great composure playing an age group higher,” said Vernon coach Brett Bandy. “It was a good job by everyone.” Maya Bandy was named Vernon’s MVP Sunday, while Lydia Wood took tourney MVP. Vernon lost 1-0 in a shootout to Calgary in their opener. Bandy fed Caleigh Graham for a clear shot on goal to put Vernon up in the first half. Calgary applied a strong push late in the half but were denied by hustling keeper Jordynne Tomiak. MVP for Vernon was Kara Ross. Vernon then fell 2-0 to the Kelowna U16s with Emilee Kronbauer earning game MVP. The U15s then dropped a 2-0 decision to Vernon’s IPL U15-16 side with Kailyn Halvorson garnering MVP. The U15s were focused, making smart plays and rushing the ball in a scoreless first half. The IPL girls scored two quick goals midway through the second half. Vernon United U13 Boys finished fourth in the Ice Breaker after losing 2-1 to the Kamloops Blaze. Ben Purvis scored for United after a pass from Perez Vermeulen. Vernon had a few chances to take the lead before Kamloops netted the winner in the late going. Micah Martens was stellar in goal, while defender

Adam Raber took game MVP. Purvis collected tourney MVP. United, coached by Roy Cooper, Yogi Kongsdorf and Rick Raber, opened by losing 5-1 to the Blaze A team. It was 3-0 Kamloops just before the break when Noah Schneider passed into the box for a successful Vermeulen header. Keeper Martens received MVP. In Game 2, Vernon rallied to clip Kelowna United 3-2 in a shootout with Purvis taking MVP. Vernon applied early pressure and converted on a nice feed by Braeden Cooper to Purvis for an early lead before Kelowna registered two snipes.

fired the winner in the final seconds. Both Vernon United U11 Boys Rep Soccer teams enjoyed success at the Ice Breaker despite playing up in the U12 division. The United boys played well against teams from Calgary, Prince George, Kelowna and Kamloops. “It was our first chance to see the boys in action and they did very well for their first games as teams,” said Team #2 head coach Paul Morgan. Team #1, coached by John Glennon, displayed great effort and game MVPs, as selected by the opposing teams, were Liam Glennon, Matt Reich, keeper Logan Quibel and Aiden Skinner. Overall team MVP for the tournament was Quibel. “Logan played fantastic and made some incredible saves each and every game,” said Glennon. Team #2 had midfielders Maksim Chirkoff and Gavin Medema, and keeper Kevin Morgan (twice) selected as game MVP’s, while tourney MVP was central defender Jack Cotter. The Thompson Okanagan FC U15 Blues, coached by Wayne Aasen of Vernon, went 1-0-3 in the Vancouver Whitecaps Showcase

tournament Easter Weekend. The Thompson Okanagan boys gave up a late penalty kick and settled for a 2-2 draw with Calgary SWU in their opener. Vernon’s Nick Klymchyk and Kamloops’ Zac Rachynski enjoyed first-half scoring chances before Cawston’s Jetson Gibbs opened the scoring on a brilliant solo effort when he picked up the ball about 30 yards out and lobbed the ball over the keeper. Ten minutes later, Gibbs scored again when he picked up a loose ball after some great pressure by his teammates and ripped a 20-yarder past the outstretched keeper. Gibbs had a chance to score a natural hat trick ten minutes into the second half when Rachynski was brought down in the box after a great through ball and was awarded a penalty. The SWU keeper guessed right. Calgary scored a nice goal that left guest Kelowna keeper Carson Murray little chance. SWU scored on a direct free kick over the wall and just inside the post, in the final minute. “It was disappointing to give up a goal that late in the game but we lost our focus for a minute or so and were punished for it,” said Aasen. “We have spent a great deal of time working on staying switched on for the whole game. I really felt sorry for the players as it was the best game they have played up to now and they deserved the win.” The Blues then iced the Magnuson Ford Mariners 2-0 Saturday morning with Kelowna’s Peter Warshawski using his size and explosive speed to score twice within three minutes. Keeper Carl Vandekraats, called up from the U14 boys team, recorded several quality saves. The late afternoon game saw TOFC tie the undefeated premier league Metro Ford Spartans 1-1. The Blues put the Spartans under pressure immediately with Warshawski leading the charge before Metro Ford took the lead in the 28th minute after the TOFC defence failed to clear a ball from their penalty area. Midway through the second half, TOFC midfielder Justis Jelasco (West Kelowna) knocked a lovely flat corner into penalty area where is was met by Harminder Padda (Kamloops), who placed a thumping header just under the crossbar. In the game for seventh place, TOFC battled Magnusson Ford to a scoreless draw.

Vernon’s Eric Byram, 17, competes at the Haywood Ski Nationals at Whistler Olympic Park.

Vernon’s Eric Byram earned the top aggregate for 1996-born nordic skiers at Haywood Ski Nationals at Whistler Olympic Park. Byram, a 17-year-old who skis with the Black Jack Ski Club in Rossland, ranked seventh overall in the Junior Men’s class after earning fifth in the 15-kilometre freestyle mass start, seventh in the 1.2-km classic, 13th in the 7.5-km classic and 17th in the 10-km freestyle. After coming down with appendicitis to start the season, Byram said: “It’s been a cut down year so it was good to have the end be good.” At biathlon nationals, also at Whistler, Byram helped Team B.C. to silver in the 3 x 4.5-km senior mixed relay. He competed with teammates

Emily Dickson (Prince George) and Carson Mackenzie (West Kelowna). Meanwhile, Byram’s brother, Joe, finished sixth in the 100-metre backstroke A final at the Swimming Canada’s world trials Wednesday at Saanich Commonwealth Place in Victoria. Joe, a member of the University of Alberta Golden Bears team, swam a personal best 56.29 seconds, but did not qualify for worlds later this year in Barcelona. The 19-year-old competed in the 50 back Thursday, and will enter the 200 back today, followed by the 200 IM Saturday. Vernon’s Savanna King, a two-time Olympian and member of the UBC Thunderbirds, finished fourth in the women’s 200 freestyle to earn a spot on the national relay team in Barcelona.

Prince George teams rule Morning Star Staff

Prince George grounded the Kamloops Blazers 6-3 Sunday in the Competitive Division final of the 9th Annual Nk’Maplqs Challenge Cup Tourney in Vernon. Director Keith Louis said there were 30 teams in four divisions. Prince George iced the Ashcroft Cowboys 3-1, while Kamloops lassoed the Cowboys 11-1 and also stopped the defending champion Caribou Canucks 8-5 in other Sunday games. Prince George also topped the Masters Division, brushing back the 2012 champion Williams Lake Longhorns 10-2 and outlasting Team Okanagan 10-6 in Sunday play. The Longhorns toppled the Chase Hackers 6-1 and upended Okanagan

5-3 in other Sunday games. The Rec Division consisted of: Westside Bears, Williams Lake Coyotes, Merritt Mudslingers and Canim Lake OTR. The Women’s Division featured: Merritt Prowlers, Canim Lake, Caribou Stars and Vernon. The Challenge Cup was founded by the late Jay Louis as a way of revitalizing the game of all-native hockey. “The tournament committee members have dedicated their time to ensure, each year, the tournament is a success and continue Jay’s legacy,” said Keith Louis. “The objective is to also mentor aboriginal youth in their hockey development by promoting sportsmanship, fair play and positive role modelling.”

Vernon’s Aaron Heidt claimed first overall in the half marathon at the North Face Dirty Feet trail race last weekend in Kamloops. Heidt completed the 21.1-kilometre course in one hour, 24 minutes and 48 seconds. He was followed by Kelowna’s Evan Rothlin (1:37:34) in second and Vernon’s Michael Stoll (1:39:33) in third. Jenna Hunter of Vernon was runner-up in the women’s division with a 1:51:50. Other age-groupers earning podium finishes include: Dan Straw (3rd, M40-49); Bob Peacock (M60-69) and Armstrong’s Jaime Lazar (3rd, F30-39). In the 10-km loop, Vernon’s Terry Hamilton was the top local, taking fifth place with a 50:03. Steve Briggeman ran a 50:32 to win in the men’s 50-59. Gage Stoll, competing in the Under 9 class, was runner-up in the men’s 5-km circuit with a 23:03. Vernon’s Kevin Woytula took second in the M30-39, and Rob Page (27:42) earned first place in the M4049. In the women’s 5-km, Vernon’s Kristen McKellar (26:33) was second in the F20-29.

Enderby’s Open Air Market is preparing for another season, but there are some rules to follow. City council has provided a number of conditions for the organizer of the market, which runs on Cliff Avenue from the spring to fall. “It’s pretty clear what our expectations are,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. “We got feedback from businesses about last year and based on that, we have to implement some changes and they (organizers) are receptive.” Among the conditions are identifying a definite end time for the market so the road can be reopened to traffic. Organizers must also ensure that vendors selling food have the proper authorization from the Interior Health Authority. “We also really want them to enforce the baked and grown rules for selling items and not to become a flea market,” said Coun. Greg McCune, adding that commercial sales could create competition for merchants. “Our duty is to the businesses in the neighbourhood to make sure it’s a farmer’s market.” Of 15 business owners on Cliff Avenue, nine are in favour of the market, four are opposed and two are not open during the summer. “The opposed businesses are all indicating their support for a market but felt that another location would be more suitable,” said Tate Bengston, the city’s deputy chief administrative officer. “Among those businesses supporting the market at the proposed location, opinions range from indifference to very strong support.”

Being accountable

our government in Ottawa brought in the Federal Accountability Act to ensure that politicians and public office holders are accountable and transparent with tax dollars. The auditor general was given more powers to follow tax dollars administered by the public service, crown corporations and other levels of government, such as First Nations. A majority of those receiving tax dollars have Colin Mayes proven to respect the terms of accountability. This past year, our government has focused on accountability to funding programs and government services. In an economy of labour shortages, the Minister of Human Resources put together a plan that would link the unemployed with available jobs. In some regions in Canada, employers needed workers, yet there were a high number of people on Employment Insurance. A policy to ensure those collecting EI are aware of employ-

MP REPORT

ment opportunities was implemented as part of the eligibility review. This has helped link people with jobs. One of the outcomes of this strategy is a saving of more than $500 million in fraudulent EI claims. This abuse of EI is not hurting government, but rather fellow workers and employers that legitimately pay into EI. If a worker cannot find work in their field of work, at the pay level they have previously received, then they can collect but EI has definite guidelines that must be met and the system should not be used as a career choice. Government services that Canadians rely on must be performed by civil servants that are accountable in their jobs at all times. A majority of civil servants are a credit to the people they serve, but it is the responsibility of elected representatives to ensure the integrity and performance of service providers. Productivity and the costs of those providing services to Canadians need to be reviewed and reflective of the affordability of taxpayers. If we do not do this we will end up as Greece, Italy, or Spain, with a bankrupt government. I can ensure you this will not happen in Canada on our watch.

Once the Jeffries brothers had established themselves as major beef suppliers, they preferred to spend their winters in Victoria, living with a large number of Southern sympathizers in the St. Nicholas Hotel on Government Street. During the winter of 1862–63, emotions between the Southerners and Unionists reached a fever pitch and, as the rebel victories mounted during those months, a number of incidents showed just how much the animosity had built up. On one occasion, the American eagle on the coat of arms on the American Consulate in Victoria had a black “stovepipe” hat and pipe painted on it. The next day, a small Confederate flag was flown over one of the shops in downtown Victoria.

Metal deer attracts passer-by attention Enderby resident designs and fabricates nine-foot tall sculpture RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

As long as his latest creation stands in his Enderby driveway, Braden Kiefiuk thinks he’ll open a lemonade stand. Such is the interest in Kiefiuk’s nine-foot-tall metal sculpture of a deer. “If I was selling lemonade, I’d be a rich man with the number of people that have randomly stopped, come by the yard and seen it,” laughed Kiefiuk, 46. “If I see them stopped on the sidewalk looking at it, I’ll wave them in and greet them. I love it. Come by anytime.” A shop foreman at Combined Mechanical Contractors by day, Kiefiuk spent “every evening, weekend and spare minute” over the last seven months creating his first metal sculpture. The finished product weighs between 800 and 1,000-pounds, stands nine-feet-tall, and is sixfeet from nose to tail. The antlers are four-feet across. Each piece of the sculpture was cut out with a zip-cut grinding disc and hammered by hand over a stake. Every piece was formed by Kiefiuk’s hands. After doing smaller stuff such

Enderby’s Braden Kiefiuk sits atop his first-ever metal sculpture, a nine-foot-tall deer, which he built piece-by-piece in his home shop. as silhouettes in his Enderby shop, Kiefiuk was challenged by a friend who said anyone could do metal art with a plazma cutter (a handheld torch for cutting steel.) “That made my stuff sound generic so I wanted to make something that not everyone can make. I challenged myself,” said Kiefiuk, who used to draw and sketch

20-to-30 years ago, then started “playing with metal and twisting it.” “I have never done a sculpture in my life. I don’t consider myself an artist. I can’t say I pictured the deer in a wonderful light coming down from the mountain and this is what it represents. I wanted to see if I could make a deer,

smashed some metal together and made a deer.” Not that the project was easy to do in the confines of his 80-inch high shop. Kiefiuk built the deer itself and the base it now sits upon separately, along with those fourfoot-wide antlers. He had to lay the deer down

in the shop and come up with the antler design while the deer was laying down. “That was very difficult,” said Kiefiuk. “It was hard to get the proportions.” Once the sculpture was complete, Kiefiuk and his wife rigged up some ratchet straps and lifted the sculpture onto a quad trailer and wheeled it out into their yard. Central Hardware came along with its crane, stood the deer up for Kiefiuk, and he welded it onto the base. “It was the first time I saw the project standing,” he said. “I was surprised and relieved it was done, and I’m pretty impressed and proud of myself. I’m hoping somebody will like it.” Kiefiuk has sent out feelers to different shops and areas like Whistler and Banff to see if there’s interest in purchasing the metal sculpture. The deer is available to anybody interested. “My stuff is one-of-a-kind,” said Kiefiuk. “I will not make it again. If someone says, ‘Make me a deer,’ I won’t do it. Because each person that pays for it will have the only one in the world like it, as far as I’m concerned.” Anybody interested can e-mail Kiefiuk at sexymetalart@telus.net or phone him at 250-540-4990. Pictures of his deer and other projects can be viewed at Kiefiuk’s Facebook page. Enter Sexy Metal Art into a search and you will be taken to the page.

KISS joins the lineup of major concerts for the Okanagan Morning Star Staff

The Okanagan will enjoy some major concerts in the coming months. Along with Motley Crüe at Penticton’s South Okanagan Events Centre this month, Jerry Seinfeld and Sting in Kelowna in May, and Theory of a Deadman and Big Wreck being among the Funtastic Music Festival lineup on Canada Day weekend in Vernon, rock ‘n’ rollers KISS are coming to play Kelowna’s Prospera Place July 8. It’s been 40 years since Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, then members of a band called Wicked Lester, joined up with drum-

mer Peter Criss and guitarist Ace Frehley to form KISS. Twenty albums, tons of black and white stage makeup, pyrotechnics, and sticking-outyour-tongue-to-see-how-far-it-will-go licks later, Simmons and Stanley, with longtime members, guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer, return stronger than ever. “We’re a real, flesh-and-blood rock and roll band with people who’ve spent 40 years doing what we believe in,” said Stanley in a release to announce the band’s upcoming tour to promote its latest album Monster. Monster is the group’s first studio album

since the band’s 2009’s Sonic Boom. Set to come out in October, the 12-song (plus bonus track), straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll album features collaborations from all four members in an effort that shows KISS at the top of its game. However, fans can also expect to hear some of the band’s arsenal of hits such as Rock and Roll All Night, Beth, and I Was Made For Lovin’ You among others. Tickets for the Kelowna show go on sale today and cost $90 and $126 each. Purchase them online at www.selectyourtickets.com or phone 250-762-5050.

piece band have become a six piece. That’s it and that’s nice; no lengthy lists, credits or thank yous to waste time with. Comedown Machine is The Strokes’ fifth album and for those who’ve listened to the band lately, it follows the sound they explored on Angles, their previous release. The guitar-centric grind of their first record is heavily enhanced with keys and effects. The production is clear and poppy, in an early ‘80s New Wave style. The simple guitar drive of earlier years has become kaleidoscopic and swirly. They’ve entered into a zone of New Wave psychedelia and while this lacks the punch of Last Nite and other early material, it’s creative and weirdly

original. But wait, there’s some nice, clean raunch that bursts through in Welcome to Japan and 50/50. These are also punk-era nuggets but they’re weighted with guitar drive that crackles. Vocalist Julian Casablancas manages to bring large doses of character and personality to usually non-committed per-

formances. Surprises surface on Chances. He goes falsetto before slacking off. It works, somehow, giving the songs the pull that grabs the ears. Tracks like Blow Animals have a transient identity. They’re short blasts of melody set against wandering sounds and strong chord patterns. They’re experimental and evocative and move dangerously close to art rock. Being The Strokes, it has the catch. The best thing about Comedown Machine is that there’s no bring down. You get 11 songs that careen around with beat and riff-driven electronic hooks without breaking a sweat. It’s brief, a bit weird, not hip, and over before you know it. It’s the sound of “who cares.”

Art exhibition supports Heron Grove Morning Star Staff

Bean to Cup Coffee House is presenting the work of emerging artist Ian Gurney for an opening night reception in its downstairs gallery Tuesday. An emerging artist, Gurney is showing his paintings of landscapes and seascapes inspired by his many years of travel throughout England, Europe and even Saudi Arabia as a quantity surveyor in the construction industry. Born in Leeds, England, Gurney took up painting as a form of recovery after a major surgery. Painting quickly turned into a passion and the paint brushes traveled with him everywhere he went for the next decade. Gurney has experimented with many different mediums and says he prefers the flexibility of water-based oil paints for

As part of Bean to Cup Gallery’s opening night reception, a portion of all coffee, tea and specialty drinks ordered that evening, will be donated to Vernon’s Good Samaritan Society’s Heron Grove location.

Opening night for the show is Tuesday from 7 to 9:30 p.m. and is open to the public, who are encouraged to come early, and bring a friend.

Roots and Blues adds to its eclectic mix

SALMON ARM — Broken Social Scene alumnus Jason Collett has joined the lineup at the 21st annual Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival this August. The singer/songwriter/musician, best known for his Juno winning work with Broken Social Scene, has just released his fifth solo album, Reckon, a seasoned, thought-provoking collection of 15 songs that has garnered near-universal acclaim. “This record’s triggered by the economic collapse of 2008 — the biggest swindle of public money in human history,” said Collett. “I didn’t set out to write these songs. It just got under my skin.” Joining Collett at Roots and Blues will be folk legend Bruce Cockburn, Grammy winner Ky-Mani Marley, Corvus Corax, Berlinski Beat, Juno winners City and Colour, 2013 Juno nominees Shakura S’Aida and Steve Strongman, beatbox artist Butterscotch, beatboy/YouTube sensation Felix Zenger, hip hop DJ Skratch Bastid, boogie woogie maestro Ben Waters, indie darlings Sallie Ford and The Sound Outside, with many other artists yet to be released. Roots and Blues takes place at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds Aug. 16 to 18. Visit www.rootsandblues. ca for info/tickets.

Paramount Pictures

Duane Johnson is Roadblock in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. none of the setbacks of the first film and succeeds. HOWE: I was lucky enough not to witness the first G.I. Joe movie, maybe because when it came out I thought it looked terrible. So when Retaliation came out I didn’t pin my hopes too high. But now after watching it I found it to be a fun, action-packed film with a pretty intelligent storyline considering it’s aimed for a younger audience. TAYLOR: Aiming it for the younger crowd was smart. It is, after all, a ridiculous comic book/cartoon crowd-pleaser. Unlike last week’s review of Olympus Has Fallen, where again we were considering

the usurping of governmental powers, no one is asking us to wear our politics on our sleeves in order to enjoy this film. G.I. Joe is about fighting to save everyone from cartoon baddies who want to take over the world, in style and with expensive toys. Therefore, the violence (which is very PG-13) and the plot itself is fitting. You can take your 10 and ups to this film without fearing nightmares, plus enjoy the action and quips yourself. HOWE: I agree with you. Even though there is violence and a high kill factor, you don’t actually see any limbs getting blown or cut off. Come to think of it, I don’t think I even saw

any blood being spilt at all. I did enjoy the bad guys: Firefly, with his deadly pet bugs, Storm Shadow, with his ninja skills, and Zartan, with his bag of disguises. TAYLOR: As well as their history, fans of the G.I. Joe lore know and love these characters. Without giving anything away, you’re in store for a couple of surprises. I’ve heard that G.I. Joe 3 is already in the works and I’m surprised to find myself not disgusted by this fact. — Taylor gives G.I. Joe: Retaliation 3.5 time altering RC bullets out of 5. — Howe gives it 3.5 eyescans out of 5.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

he elite American fighting force known as the G.I. Joes (led by Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum) are framed by a shapeshifting evil-doer Taylor & Howe who has taken the form of the President (Jonathan Pryce). Unable to fight from within the channels they are used to, the Joes must regroup, re-enlist the “original Joe” (Bruce Willis) and even join forces with some that used to be their enemies in order to defeat their common foe, the man behind all the mayhem, Cobra Commander. We say, “It’s better than the first one.” TAYLOR: I wasn’t looking forward to this film, mostly because I was disappointed by the first. I’m not a G.I. Joe expert, but I did enjoy the cartoon series when I was a kid. The first film seemed just too frantic and disjointed, like many action films these days. I also think the filmmakers built up the first film to be too adult oriented. Furthermore (as is often the case), I think there were too many writers for G.I. Joe: the Rise of Cobra, which can rob movies of their directionality. G.I. Joe: Retaliation suffers

ASET helps preserve the future Annual Green Fair helps students with their studies related to the environment

Katherine MortiMer Morning Star Staff

Amelia Galuska began her studies in natural resources science at Thompson Rivers University last fall, while Reka Vasarhelyi began studies in water technology and engineering technology at Okanagan College. The 2012 Pleasant Valley secondary school graduates are just two of many students who have been given a helping hand from the Armstrong Spallumcheen Environmental Trust (ASET). Every year since 2002, ASET has awarded one or two $1,000 bursaries to a PVSS grad for university studies in an environmentally related science. Students can prepare for careers in forest sustainability, development of non-polluting fuel sources, water protection, or wildlife biology, just to name a few eligible fields. “And this year, there is a $1,000 award donated by Spall’s 100th anniversary committee,” said Marjorie Harris, public relations director for ASET. But to continue to award the bursaries, the trust needs to raise money and that’s

where the seventh annual ASET Green Fair trade show fundraiser comes in. Taking place April 20, rain or shine, at Askew’s parking lot in Armstrong, the fair is supported by businesses demonstrating clean energy solutions and environmentally sensitive solutions. “Don’t miss this wonderful uniqueto-the-North-Okanagan opportunity for your cause,” said Harris. “Displays of your planet health cause, sales of your company wares and environmental related products are welcome.” ASET was established in 2002 by Mildred Inglis, who passed away in February. From her obituary, “Mildred and her buddies saw the need to create Armstrong Spallumcheen Environmental Trust, now a registered society that she registered with forgotten and found retirement fund dollars from a past teaching job in Saskatchewan. This is an awareness group of caring citizens, who understand planet health is deteriorating at the hands of mankind, citizens who want to actually help make a difference to stand up for this one earth.” Harris has been involved with ASET since the past year and a half, after attending a presentation where she learned about community resilience. “It’s a green idea, about planting trees in the community but making sure they are food trees; in the event of a disaster, how

This is Teresa... Teresa has ideas for your entire house.

resilient is your community? It’s the ability of the community to carry on relatively normally if we were cut off from outside resources because food, water, medical is all part of resilience. I ended up forming the resilience project for Armstrong; we started building food forests and regular evergreens. “I think people are much more aware of the environment now. I think in the last 10 years, with the recycling program and clean energy alternatives, with organic foods and eating locally, people are much more aware and more and more people are seeking those solutions.” The Green Fair takes place April 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will feature a barbecue hosted by the Boy Scouts, with hot dogs donated by Askew’s. Funds raised from the barbecue are split between the Scouts and ASET. “We’ll have food, free plants, a movie tent, seed sellers, two organic associations have signed up, and every year we raffle a composter. We’re also hoping to have facepainting, so there is something for every age. “We are looking for long-term corporate sponsors so we can continue building on our legacy fund for our bursaries.” To sign up for the Green Fair, e-mail info@asetbc.ca. Cost to participate is $40, plus $10 for a six or eight-foot table. Supplying your own table saves you $10. For non-profit societies, entry fee is $30.

We do it the light way. Looking to create the perfect mood? A good table or floor lamp can make all the difference and Teresa can help you make the right choice.

Vernon artist James Todd’s painting, Archangel Faith, is one of many prints he is selling at The Shoparama Spring Market, with proceeds going to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital’s compassion-comfort fund for those in need of help while undergoing treatment for cancer. Todd’s prints will be at the Canadian Cancer Society booth at the Shoparama at the Vernon Recreation Centre, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free, but non-perishable items for the food bank are welcome. Todd, who is undergoing treatment for cancer, is also making his prints available at www.themichaelproject. com/posters.html, with proceeds to the fund during April’s Daffodil Month.

Local elementary school students are sharpening their reading skills in preparation for the annual Battle of the Books Competition. Taking place April 23 at the Vernon Recreation Centre, the event brings together area elementary schools represented by teams of students from Grades 3 to 7 who will answer questions from 10 books they have read in a Reach for the Top style competition. Participating elementary schools include: Alexis Park, Beairsto, Cherryville, Ellison, Harwood, Hillview, JW Inglis, Kidston, Lavington, Mission Hill, Silver Star, Okanagan Landing and Vernon

Christian School. This reading competition originated in Kamloops several years ago. The Vernon Teacher-Librarian Local Specialist Association adopted the format and has successfully run the competition for more than six years. Battle of the Books takes place April 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Centre, 3310-37th Ave. Admission is by donation.

Confidence is nothing to sneeze at. A new Lennox® Healthy Climate® filtration system from S. P. Seymour Ltd. will put you at ease all spring long.

Coders wanted

computer question

to identify operands. Then along came compilers where commands were more English languagelike and designed specifically for engineering or business applications. Now by simply entering “Add this to that and send to there” into the compiler along with other similarly structured commands, the computer would do all the deciphering. Higher level languages have evolved over time to accommodate commands to instruct a computer to perform any task it is physically capable of doing, which in today’s world means many that communicate with other computers and networks thereof and ultimately to other human beings. So if making computers do stuff appeals to you, take a coding course! The Vernon PC Users’ Club meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Schubert Centre. For information, please contact Betty at 250-542-7034 or Olive at 250-542-8490.

everal pretty high profile people have in recent months been promoting the need for more people to learn to code or program computer devices. Bill Gates, Mark Zuckermann, Michael Bloomberg and others inside and outside of the high tech industry cite the growing need for programmers to develop operating and application software for the thousands of new products and services that will continue Vernon pc users’ club to be introduced that have a computer involved in some way in their operation. I can’t picture the Mayor of New York becoming a nerd any time soon, but there is no denying there is a rapidly growing need for competent coders. As Gates points out, learning to program a computer is not like learning how to build a rocket to go to Mars. It’s akin to learning a new language, but not just building up a vocabulary, because with any computer language you must also learn a set of strict syntactical and grammatical rules. When digital computers first were built, the only way to program them was in their own binary language written as a bunch of zeroes and ones. As one could imagine, this was very tedious and error-prone. Soon assembler languages were developed to permit code using mnemonics to designate various operations like add, subtract and compare and alphanumerical labels (not binary)

Rock. Exodus 17:6: Under Moses the people were thirsty and in despair. The angel who conversed with Moses was Yahweh’s representative. “Behold I will stand...upon the rock (tsur: huge boulder, eternal strength and everlasting power) and thou shalt smite the rock and there shall come water out of it.” This was water gushing out of it in ample supply like a river flowing - typical of the water of life supplied by the Lord Jesus Christ in consequence of his crucifixion.

here when my 11-yearold son is staying over. Because my son is the oldest, he tends to be blamed whenever the kids do inappropriate things. But kids pick up all kinds of things in school, from other kids and from other adults. My boyfriend’s ex doesn’t know me or my children. I have heard her children say and do things they should not be allowed to do, but I seem to be the only one who notices. My boyfriend makes excuses for their behavior, but if my children misbehave, he is quick to let me know that I need to discipline them. The major problem is his nine-year-old daughter, who wants

my boyfriend for letting his ex control the situation. Am I overreacting? — Confused and a Little Sad Dear Confused: You are on shaky ground when it comes to telling your boyfriend and his ex how to arrange their visitation schedule. It is not unreasonable for the mother to prefer that her kids have time with Dad without your children around. We think you should try to make friends with the ex so you can work on getting the kids together for holidays and special occasions. They will be less belligerent toward one another (and toward you) if they don’t have to compete for their father’s attention at every visit. Dear Annie: I am an administrative assistant and am proud of the level of professionalism I have maintained in the office. However, I feel like I am about to go out of my mind. I share an office with a very rude woman. I do my best to smooth out her rough spots with

customers, but she has one habit I can’t fix. She constantly chews gum with her mouth open and looks like a cow. I find it amazing that our administrators, who deal with her daily, have never mentioned this to her. I purposely turn my music up a bit louder to drown out the sound. She and I do not have a good relationship, so I cannot think of a way to mention this without upsetting her. The stress it causes me is giving me a headache. It is gross and unprofessional. Any suggestions? — Pro in Pennsylvania Dear Pro: You have nothing to lose by asking her nicely to please not chew gum when dealing with the customers, because it is unprofessional, as well as unappealing to see and hear. You also could talk to human resources about instituting a behavior and dress code to cover such things. It is often easier than singling out one particular employee. Dear Annie: I’d like to respond to “N.Y., N.Y.,” the 34-year-old who found it difficult to visit his ailing grandparents. When our parents’ health deteriorated, it wasn’t pleasant to visit, but we kept in mind all the times they took care of us when we were babies, cleaning soiled diapers and sitting up all night when we were sick. Recently, my uncle suffered a stroke. At our first visit, he didn’t recognize us. For the next visit, we brought his favourite music and read stories from Reader’s Digest. I know those grandparents would enjoy some company. — MD, Calif.

Bridge by Phillip Alder

IF IT IS A LOSER, DO NOT RUFF AT FIRST William Lyon Phelps was a popular columnist and public speaker who taught the first American university course on the modern novel. He said, “If at first you don’t succeed, find out if the loser gets anything.” At the bridge table, a loser usually gives a trick to the opponents. Sometimes, though, taking that trick can be costly. In today’s deal, what should be the result in four spades after West leads the club king? Note East’s balancing one-no-trump overcall. This shows only 11 to 15 points. With a normal strong notrump, East doubles and rebids in no-trump. South’s three-heart rebid

and North’s jump to four spades were aggressive but reasonable. North liked his three-card spade support, a ruffing value in South’s second suit and an ace. South wins the first trick with dummy’s ace, plays a heart to his queen, cashes the heart ace, and leads another heart. Should West ruff with his spade 10 or pitch a minor-suit card? In general, if declarer is about to ruff a loser, the defender should discard. Here, if West ruffs, the contract can be made. South trumps the (say) club continuation, ruffs a heart on the board (bringing down East’s king), and plays a spade to his nine. He continues with a high trump and loses only two spades

and one diamond. If West correctly discards at trick four, the play gets interesting. South ruffs, trumps a club in his hand and leads another heart. Now West must ruff! He then leads a minor, and South cannot avoid losing another two spades and one diamond to East.

October 13, 1910 – March 31, 2013

Olive Rogers (nee Hanbridge) died peacefully on March 31, 2013 at the age of 102, at Westridge Care Residence, Vernon. She was predeceased by her husband Bob and her son Bill. Olive is survived by her daughter Dinah Phillips (Will), her sister Joyce Upperton, daughter-in-law Catherine Rogers, grandchildren Katherine Sturley (David), Joanna Phillips, Chrissy Hall (James), Robert and Samantha Rogers; six great grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces and great-nephews and greatnieces. Olive was born in Eccles, England; her father was in the Royal Navy so she spent her early years moving constantly. In 1935 she went to India where she met Bob. They lived there for over 20 years, returning to England in the late 1950s. They settled happily in Vernon in 1981 where they made many dear friends. She will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday April 9, 2013 at 2.30 p.m. at All Saints’ Anglican Church, followed by a reception in the Church Hall. In lieu of ƪowers, please donate to the charity of your choice. The family wishes to than all the staơ at Westridge Care Residence for their wonderful care and compassion. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home, 3007 28 St, Vernon. Phone: 250.542.0155.

She was right. Dennis and Ellen started their new family in Toronto, where they lived for several years before pulling up their stakes and moving west to BC. They had visited the Okanagan once on vacation and decided it was where they wanted to be. In 1970, they moved to Lake Country, where they would live for the next 40 years and build a business together that would eventually occupy them, their children and grandchildren. Dennis was an amazing man, with many friends and admirers. His generosity, good humour, and adventurous spirit earned him love and respect at every turn, but he also never let anyone forget that he could be a strict boss and a firm leader. Dennis loved to travel, and often would, with friends, family or both. He would make a special point of meeting and befriending families in countries that he visited, often arranging ongoing support for them and their children. But Dennis’ greatest and most favorite project was his family. His best times were those spent around the dinner table, raising a glass and arguing about whatever was going to be the topic of the evening. He was the toastmaster, the storyteller, and always the centre of attention. When he and Ellen retired to their Denman Island cottage in 2011, their dinner table and their beach became a destination resort for many. Papa died on March 22, 2013. He leaves behind Ellen, their children Laurel, Philip, Christina, and Andrew, grandchildren Chantelle, Dane, Zachary, Max, Cassia, Amelia, and Seamus, great-grandchildren Tyson, Lucas, and Alivia, and many other nieces, nephews, friends, neighbours, and extended family. He will be missed.

Bis aufs aufs wiedersehen wiedersehen liebe liebe mama. mama. Bis

Olive Rogers

Dennis (Papa) Powell was born in Edmonton on February 12, 1936. He was proud of his humble beginnings, and was always happy to share his stories of growing up in abject poverty (to hear him describe it) in northern Alberta. The second in a family of four brothers, Dennis left school and home at an early age and set out to take on the world armed with street smarts, a powerful work ethic and an unflagging will to succeed. In Toronto, in the 1950s, he found his life partner and soul mate Ellen, and they married despite the considerable reservations voiced by her mother. At the time, Dennis’ entire fortune consisted of a one-half interest in a 58 Ford, but Ellen saw in him much potential for improvement.
