what people needed.” Rob Sawatzky, Vernon mayor, also welcomes the referendum outcome. “It’s a positive thing for the community,” he said. “It’s easier to be negative and tear things down than it is to build.” Many residents expressed concerns about the proposal, including whether another site should have been considered and if a sports facility was needed during economically challenging times. Questions also arose about the actual financial impact on an average residence. “There was a lot of enthusiasm on both sides of the issue,” said Patrick Nicol, RDNO chairperson.

Given the close vote, Mike Macnabb, Greater Vernon Advisory Committee chairperson, says there is still a need to keep open communication with residents who opposed the plan. “I’m surprised at how little knowledge people had of the process and why it won’t be at Kin Race Track,” he said. “We need to reach out to people who voted no.” With a total of 45,000 eligible voters in Greater Vernon, turnout was about 18 per cent Saturday. “It’s a healthy sample of the size of the community. It’s a lot of people taking time out of their day to be involved in the community,” said Nicol.

With voter approval in place, officials are now focused on bringing Greater Vernon’s sports complex to life. It’s anticipated construction could begin this fall on the running track and sports fields next to Okanagan College. “We have to get the shovels in the ground fairly quick,” said Bill Tarr, chairperson of the steering committee that promoted the concept to voters. Out of 8,220 participants, 4,303, or 52.3 per cent of voters, agreed to borrow up to $7.5 million Saturday to construct the facility. There was a total of 3,917 no votes or 47.7 per cent. Part of the pre-construction process already underway is an archeological study. That will then be followed by detailed design work and then tendering construction contracts. The terms of the Agricultural Land Commission agreeing to a non-farm use within the Agricultural Land Reserve include construction being completed by November 2014. “Our deadline is realistic,” said Tannis Nelson, Regional District of North Okanagan community development coordinator. Strict timelines are also set out in the lease agreement between the regional district and Okanagan College. However, Coldstream Mayor Jim Garlick expects there won’t be any stumbling blocks, even if work has to proceed past November 2014. “Everyone will be reasonable. The college will be and the ALC will be,” he said. Okanagan College is leasing the land to RDNO for $1 a year. “The college believes the sports facility will provide significant benefits to its students and employees and to the Greater Vernon community,” said Jane Lister, campus dean. The primary reasons put forward for the facility were meeting the needs of track and football clubs because of the present lack of adequate facilities, and allowing Greater Vernon to host major events. “I am thrilled people see the positive vision and how this will improve the community,” said Tarr. “We did a good job of getting people the information they wanted and we listened to

City tries to flush out odour solution richard rolke Morning Star Staff

The City of Vernon is trying to deal with a stinky situation. Council agreed Monday to spend $127,500 for a water system at the biosolids composting facility in the Commonage. “A reduction in smell may occur,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. Rob Sawatzky Complaints are com-

mon from nearby residents about an odour emanating from the facility that takes from sewer biosolids and turns it into Ogogrow fertilizer. “There seems to be an issue for some residents at some times,” said Sawatzky. “We have to approve anything reasonably affordable that helps with the situation.” As part of the composting process, water must be available to ensure the correct moisture content occurs in the material. Presently the process uses treated reclaimed waste water but it’s not available outside of the

spray irrigation season. The plan is to access reclaimed water from nearby McKay reservoir. Along with Vernon, Kelowna will provide $297,500 because it is also an owner of the biosolids facility. Coun. Patrick Nicol insists the water system is necessary to ensure that the city doesn’t contravene provincial permits. But he believes the most important factor is to provide residents with some relief from the odour. “This seems to make a lot of sense and I hope it will make an impact,” he said.

Councillor to monitor parking fee revenue richard rolke Morning Star Staff

A Vernon politician wants proof that higher parking fees aren’t chasing people from downtown. Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe has requested a monthly report on revenue that is obtained from parking meters.

“We need to make sure we’re on top of this.” — Mary-Jo O’Keefe

“I want them compared to what we hope to achieve in the bud-

get,” she said. Parking meter rates recently climbed from

50 cents to $1 an hour. For city-owned parking lots, the user fee has increased from $35 a month and $21.40 per month (in some cases) to $60 a month, with hourly and day rates increasing where the lot allows this use. O’Keefe says she has heard concerns from

both residents and merchants about the higher rates and she is concerned they will lead to fewer people shopping downtown. “We need to make

B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins promises a platform of change. And not just change for the sake of change. “It’s the kind of change British Columbians want,” said Cummins, 71, leader of the provincial Conservatives who was in the North Okanagan on Monday. “We are a very positive alternative for B.C. We’re not just out there slagging the Liberals for mismanagement of our government’s finances. It’s true they deserve to be slagged, they increased the debt as much as the NDP did during their terms in office. “We’re better than that. We have to show that we are a thoughtful and principled alternative. That’s the job before us; let the folks know that we do have options, that we will address issues of concern to them and we promise integrity in government.” Cummings, a 17-year MP from the Delta-Richmond East riding for the federal Tories before taking over the leadership of the provincial Conservatives, was in Vernon Monday morning to help VernonMonashee candidate Scott Anderson officially open his constituency office on 31st Avenue. Close to 50 supporters came out to hear Cummings, who opened proceedings by telling people one of the first things the Conservatives would do as the government would be to do away with the carbon tax. “The carbon tax is harmful,” said Cummins. “It hurts businesses, and hurts people who live in areas where there’s no public transportation. If you have to rely on your own vehicle in all types of weather, that carbon tax is punitive. We’ve committed to getting rid of it.” Cummins took questions from

the floor for close to an hour on a wide range of topics from the Kitimat refinery proposed by Black Press owner David Black (Conservatives are in favour of the refinery) to the film industry. On that topic, Cummins talked about his Genie Award-winning actor/director son, Martin, who has cast his father and his parents’ home in his next production. “I play a news reader,” smiled Cummins. “I guess I have a career to fall back on now if this doesn’t pan out.” Anderson, meanwhile, was asked how he could make a mark against incumbent Eric Foster of the Liberals and Mark Olsen of the NDP in the local riding. “We’re already making a mark,” said Anderson. “It’s been widely acknowledged in the media and on the blogs that this is a riding that we have a real shot of winning. “In the history of this riding, when the Liberals first won, they won by 10,000 votes. That’s just gone down, down, down until the last election, they won by just 1,500 votes. That’s 8,500 votes gone that went to the NDP because people thought they were the only alternative. “We think we can take those votes that went to the NDP and take a good number of Liberal votes. We think very strongly we can win this riding.” Boosting that confidence was former Okanagan-Shuswap Conservative MP Darrel Stinson. “I’ve run into a number of people who said they weren’t going to vote,” said Stinson. “Now, because the Conservative Party is here, they’ve said they are going to come out and vote because you’ve given them that opportunity.” Anderson and Cummins visited Lumby businesses Monday afternoon, and also held a meet-and-greet with village residents.

NDP forecast local victory Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

The NDP are optimistic about making inroads in Vernon-Monashee May 14. “There are no safe Liberal seats in British Columbia,” said John Horgan, NDP house leader and energy critic, during a stop in Vernon Monday to show his support for the local candidate, Mark Olsen. When it comes to Vernon-Monashee, Horgan is confident there will be an orange wave over the traditionally conservative riding. “It’s going to be very much a play to watch,” said Horgan, adding that Olsen came very close during the last election. Eric Foster, Liberal MLA, is looking to retain his hold on the riding, but Horgan says his seat could easily be turned over. Olsen agrees: “Our leader Adrian Dix has been very clear that every riding has the potential to be a real dog fight.” But Olsen also notes that it’s going to take some work to change some of the residents’ traditional voting patterns. “It’s about priorities. What we want is to focus on what matters for the people of Vernon and B.C.,” said Olsen. Horgan adds: “Not pie-in-the-sky promises.” Along with a $100 million forgivable grant for post secondary students, if elected the NDP will provide residents with an opportunity to opt-out of the smart meter program (although it will likely come at a cost). While he personally has no health or privacy concerns with smart meters, Horgan has received at least 2,500 e-mails of concerns from residents. “There are significant concerns with many, many people.” Monday’s NDP gathering also focused on energy concerns in the area. “Mark and I are going to look at some of the energy issues that have been neglected in the region,” said Horgan. Brad Foster, of the Sierra Club Okanagan, shared concerns for mistreatment of local waterways and grasslands from urban sprawl. Taking Horgan and Olsen to the old Coldstream Hotel site, Foster shared his vision for a complex on the currently vacant lot. To date, here are only three candidates in VernonMonashee — Foster, Olsen and Conservative Scott Anderson. Horgan is concerned about voter turnout. “We need to drive participation up, it’s been going steadily down,” said Horgan. “The best way to get participation is names on the ballot.”

Vision is required

running track and sports fields are moving ahead after Saturday’s referendum. But that’s just the first step in Greater Vernon. The recently established North Okanagan Sports Society insists there’s a need to establish a 20- to 30-year plan for sports and recreation infrastructure. “We look forward to connecting with the sporting community throughout the region to learn more about their organizations, the long-term needs for their sports and future events they have planned,” said Akbal Mund, society president. And the wish list is significant. Civic Arena is on the verge of being decommissioned so that means there will be a push for another sheet of hockey Richard Rolke ice. Speed skating and gymnastics are currently under-served by facilities as is motocross. Minor fastball would like to see a concession facility at Grahame Park so tournaments can be hosted while the present swimming pool is inadequate for the Kokanee Swim Club and a growing community. But one has to wonder why the North Okanagan Sports Society’s mandate is so limited? If there truly is an interest in moving the community into the future, then eyes must also be cast towards the cultural pursuits. And while that may seem like a stretch, sports and culture have a lot in common. Both can inspire our youth and foster passions that carry them for a lifetime. They can also keep our seniors vibrant and active, while bolstering the economy through tourism and providing the amenities new residents and investors seek. The other common link is that cultural

and sports infrastructure have been allowed to languish in Greater Vernon. Case in point are the art gallery and the museum. There will be those who roll their eyes and insist their taxes shouldn’t go to things they will never use. But one should remember that communities are a collective, not individual enterprises and the paying of taxes are partially about supporting what’s good for the whole. I don’t use transit or seniors programs, but I don’t mind paying for them because of the broad impact they provide. Others will contend that taxes should go to essentials like roads instead of so-called luxuries. But the reality is, that even if Saturday’s referendum had failed, there wouldn’t automatically be $7.5 million for roads. This was a one-time proposal for a sports facility funded by all of Greater Vernon whereas roads are the individual responsibility of the city, Coldstream and, in the case of the electoral areas, the provincial government. One can also make the argument that by providing amenities that tourists and new residents want, that an expanded tax base will allow communities to more readily tackle the infrastructure deficit. Obviously fiscal restraint is always critical as taxpayers — and I am one — cannot be considered a bottomless pit for every concept that comes along. Unfortunately, though, infrastructure — whether it’s roads, sewer, sports fields or culture — have been ignored for so long and catch-up is going to be costly. And that’s why co-operation is required. Culture and sports should not be considered rivals for limited public dollars. They should be on the same team, ensuring that a vibrant, healthy community develops in a financially viable manner. The North Okanagan Sports Society is a good first step, but there needs to be more to the vision.

The referendum is over and Greater Vernon is getting a $7.5 million sports facility. However, the real hard work is just beginning. Obviously, that will include hammering out firm design details and hiring contractors so the track and fields can be constructed by November 2014. But, given that 47 per cent of those who voted opposed borrowing funds, the most critical task ahead of the Regional District of North Okanagan is ongoing public education. And given many of the postreferendum comments on The Morning Star website, concerns still exist about the location of the facility, the price tag, the need and how it rose to the top of the priority list when there are many infrastructure projects in the community. Director Mike Macnabb admits the ongoing need for public awareness. “I’m surprised at how little knowledge people had of the process and why it won’t be at Kin Race Track,” he said. With tax money at play, there has to be some comfort level that those dollars are being invested wisely and efficiently. Residents need to be provided regular updates on construction and that the budget is being strictly adhered to. They also need to be provided with more information on the potential of the facility and exactly who will be using it. A very public process is also required when there are bids for tournaments and large events. There has to be some confidence that promises of economic development come close to fruition. In the end, a majority of participating voters spoke Saturday. But it’s critical to remember that those opposed must have their concerns addressed.

ust over three years ago, cancer struck our family. It changed our family's lives forever, especially our daughter who was 39-years-old at the time. No one ever thinks it will happen to them. It's not that we think it can't, we just don't think it will. Well, believe me, it can and does happen more so, every minute of everyday, somewhere. No one is immune. Luckily, our daughter is blessed to have such a caring and supportive husband. With two daughters raised and on their own, they still have two young children who must be clothed, fed, and guided in a positive direction so they will then grow up to be strong, responsible, and hard working adults. As grandparents, we try to help out our daughter and son-in-law by occasionally taking the children for a night or two. Being seniors, our energy levels aren't what they used to be. We notice we aren't as capable of keeping up to an active four-year-old and an inquisitive nine-year-old, but Thank you At the beginning of our winter here at Mcleod subdivision in Armstrong, I wrote a letter to the editor about how I felt like a target walking my dog River around our subdivision. Even with a high-visibility vest, some cars appeared to be coming straight at me with high-beam lights on, making it difficult to see where we were in relation to the vehicle approaching. I asked if them to move over if they can, and River and I would stop and wave before carrying on. Well, this letter is to say a big thanks from River and I to everyone who travels up here in Mcleod. I do not know if it was because of my letter or just the people themselves but I have not had one issue with vehicles since my letter came out. In fact, people not only have moved over, they have slowed down and even stopped to say hi. In every case in which I wave thanks, I always get a smile and a wave back from the people inside the cars. I know the other dog walkers, horse riders and exercise walkers

we do our best. The shock of knowing our daughter has cancer was terrifying to us. Not knowing what to say to her to comfort her or to reassure her that it will be OK. We don't know, nor do the doctors. So it is a very scary time for all of us. We try to take it one day at a time. But, dreading the thoughts of what our daughter has already had to endure, to happen all over again, is painful to say the least.

appreciate the consideration just as River and I do. So again, thanks for making our winter walking around Mcleod subdivision safe. I look forward to walking in the good weather and continued waves and smiles. Bud Stirman and River the retriever joining TogeTheR Amalgamation makes sense. Instead of the passionately contested model that would see Coldstream joining with Vernon, I think it would be great if Vernon (my city) amalgamated with Coldstream. Coldstream could stay rural (as many wish), and Vernon could build on its own rural heritage to foster efficient government and food sustainability. This new city of Coldstream or Kalamalka or Long Lake or New Aberdeen (or something else) could be a model of decentralization and the greening of urban space in preparation for the future. It would pave the wave for incorporation of a rural BX too. Even better, the college and

the Okanagan Indian Band could use their relationship to the Commonage to develop this new city as a model of First Nations food technology and grasslands renewal, that could then be linked to agricultural renewal in general and the addition of rural-based industrial gardens (agricultural innovation centres, using unused farmland, linked to innovative college programs in arts, science and technology). This would add to current community food gardens and recreational fields and parks. All of the pieces are here. We don't have to follow the urbanization path of Kelowna or any of thousands of similar cities. We can do way better, and what's best is the future is going to be built upon urban relationships with the earth. It's coming. Let's make Vernon the centre of that before the eggs are in too many baskets. Think of it, our community as a world centre of educational, political, social and industrial innovation, flush with jobs, rich with young people, and united. harold Rhenisch

Flooding alert issued in Lake Country Morning Star Staff

Lake Country and North Westside residents living along waterfront and creeks should consider steps to protect their property and reduce the risk of flooding. The Regional District of Central Okanagan says seasonal temperatures and forecasted showers are increasing flows and levels of water bodies. “A sudden prolonged warm spell combined with heavy rains could increase

the risk of above-average creek levels and potential flooding,” said Bruce Smith, communications officer. Local governments and the Ministry of Environment are monitoring water levels and weather conditions connected to the annual spring runoff and, if needed, will issue further notices. “Affected property owners adjacent to creeks, streams and lakes are responsible for having a plan as well as the tools

and equipment necessary to protect their properties from possible flood damage,” said Smith. Stockpiles of sandbags are available at the fire halls in Lake Country and North Westside. At this time, property owners are responsible for providing their own sand to fill the bags. For information, go to www.cordemergency.ca.

Seniors unable to leave home will still have access to a nutritious lunch. Vernon’s Schubert Centre is relaunching the Meals on Wheels program for seniors. “It’s a well-needed program,” said Jack Gareb, executive director. The Interior Health Authority cut funding to Meals on Wheels in about 2008 and since then, the service has been unavailable to residents in need. However, Gareb says the Schubert Centre decided to act. “We have been doing it on a limited bassi but now we will get other service clubs to deliver them,” he said. The goal is to ensure seniors who can’t leave their home or can’t cook for themselves have a healthy meal. The previous program distributed 35 to 40 meals a day. To help with the Meals on Wheels program, the federal government has provided $24,378 for a refrigeration unit at the Schubert Centre. “We have a significant number of seniors in Canada and we need to look at the needs of seniors,” said Colin Mayes, Okanagan-Shuswap MP. Ottawa is also giving $23,472 to the Schubert Centre to replace carpet in the facility. “The present flooring is looking a bit sad and worse for the wear,” said John Toporchak, Schubert Centre president. Mayes believes it’s important to support organizations like the Schubert Centre. “They keep improving the facility and the services to the community,” he said.

Concert to put smiles on those needing dental care Musicians come together to play Tunes for Teeth 2 in support of Community Dental Access Centre Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

There would be no tunes without teeth. For those low-income residents who have decayed or missing teeth, not only is eating difficult, so is singing or playing an instrument. Without the means to pay for oral care, many have had to keep their mouths shut about the things many of us take for granted. However, there has been reason to sing since the Community Dental Access Centre opened its doors in Vernon over a year ago. With years of lobbying, planning, and fundraising, the low-cost dental clinic now provides basic restorative and hygiene services to low-income people in the North Okanagan. The clinic, which is run by a not-forprofit society, has the ultimate goal to become self-sufficient and not be dependent on government funding or grants. But in the meantime, it relies on donations and grants, volunteering, in-kind contributions and community support and partnerships. For the second year, locals can show their support by purchasing a ticket for Tunes for Teeth, a fundraising concert for the Community Dental Access Clinic. Organized by Julie Harmer, a director with the CDAC society, Tunes for Teeth 2

Jesse mast, winner of this year’s our Kids Have talent contest, is one of the performers at tunes for teeth 2, a concert to benefit the Vernon Community Dental access Centre. takes place April 19 at Emmanuel Baptist Church and features a wealth of musical talent. It follows last year’s successful concert, which started after a resident was in need of emergency dental care, said Harmer. “A friend, who is a musician, offered to do a concert to help,” she said, adding, “The clinic is still in need of money in a big way,

so we thought instead to do a big concert. All the musicians are donating their time and talents to put this on.” Performing this year are bands Steel Wound and MACE, both of Vernon, as well as some young soloists, including this year’s Our Kids Have Talent winner Jesse Mast of Salmon Arm, and past OKHT finalist Brandon Schmor, also of Vernon. At only 17 years old, Mast is making a name for himself as a country music artist, although his writing and playing styles have been impacted more by classic rock and soft acoustic. Mast grew up in Edmonton, listening to Christian contemporary, rock n’ roll and bluegrass. His first exposure to modern country music was when his uncle handed him a copy of Ropin’ the Wind by Garth Brooks, who became his hero and inspiration. Mast says he has been blessed to work with some fantastic people while getting his music career underway, and recently had the opportunity to work with some country music professionals, including Gord Banford. Returning to perform for Tunes for Teeth is Steel Wound, who have over a century of musical experience between them and an obvious enjoyment for the music they make. The acoustic trio presents a repertoire of original tunes and semi-obscure alt-root jazzy country blues played by multi-instrumentalists Keith Hustler, Kerry Parks, and Rod MacDonald. Together, they trade lead vocals, building three-part harmonies, and resort to mandolin, tuba and slide guitar when called upon. They also make old songs sound new again, and make new ones sound vaguely familiar.

No stranger to the Okanagan music scene, MACE started its journey together in 1981. The band quickly developed a reputation for intuitive song selection and dynamic stage presence, a perfect combination for audiences looking for an exciting evening of rock and roll. A fixture at several local and valley nightclubs throughout the ‘80s, MACE was the original Funtastic band and eventually took their act on the road, appearing throughout the province. Halted by a personnel change in 1984, the band resurfaced with a new drummer and keyboard player and underwent a few reformations throughout the ‘80s and ‘90. Today’s lineup includes original members Jackson Mace on lead vocals and guitar and Jeff Gamble on lead guitar/vocals, joined by drummer Don Redgwell and bassist Brett Osborne. Schmor is also no stranger to Vernon. The 18-year-old honky tonk piano player is also a singer-songwriter and piano collector, who has more than 30 in his collection. Schmor’s style ranges from gospel and swing to blues and rock. He has placed in the Top 10 twice in Our Kids Have Talent and won third place in 2010. He has been invited to play at numerous gigs throughout the Okanagan, including the Sunshine Festival, Summerland Action Fest, the B.C. Winter Games, the JCI Hospital Gala, and Alan Brooks Nature Centre to name a few. Tunes for Teeth 2 takes place at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 3412-15th Ave. Friday, April 19 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20, now available at the Bean Scene, Talkin’ Donkey and Discovery Shoes. They will also be available at the door, which opens at 6 p.m.

Vernon’s SonReal pays homage to his hometown in new video Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

You don’t have to look too hard to recognize some familiar sites in a just released video featuring Vernon’s Juno nominated hip hop artist SonReal. Kalamalka Lake pier, the alley beside Cenotaph Park in downtown Vernon, and a W.L. Seaton Secondary hallway appear in the new video Hometown off SonReal’s and Rich Kidd’s 2013 Juno nominated album The Closers. The video, starring Rich and SonReal’s friends and family, had

its world premiere on George Strombolopolous’ website last week, and now the video and song are making waves across the nation.  Video director Liam Mitchell (Mad Ruk Entertainment)  took the rappers back to their roots, where SonReal (born Aaron Hoffman) recorded his part while in Vernon over the Christmas holidays. He is seen kicking back with friends in the wide-open spaces of Vernon, while Rich Kidd is surrounded by friends and family in the Ridgeway housing projects in

Mississauga, Ont. “Coming back home to Vernon is great. My mom and other family are there. I’ve only been back there a few times this year and although I’ve been in Vancouver for almost seven years, Vernon really does still feel like home,” SonReal told The Morning Star back in December. The hook-laden track, produced by Arthur McArthur, showcases SonReal’s skill as both a rapper and a singer. On his  verse he uses the opportunity to shout-out his friends that believed in and supported him

from the beginning of his career. For Rich Kidd, his verse is a chance to reflect on why he’ll stick by the neighbourhood he grew up in, aware he’s got an important role to play as someone the younger kids can look up to. The duo released their debut collaborative album The Closers via Black Box Recordings in the fall of 2012. The album is up for a Juno nomination for Rap Recording of the Year. Cheer them on when the Junos are held in Regina April 21.

Canadian R&B hitmakers stop by Vernon Morning Star Staff

There’s two things that may be missing in the world today, but bring them together and you get some Smart Luve. Vancouver R&B artists Craig Smart and Rosette Luve are winding their way through Canada this month, and stop by Monashee’s Bar and Grill in Vernon Friday. Known for both hip hop and R&B hits, such as 123 and One Last Night (produced by Longo and Wainwright), which have received international play, Smart has been topping the charts for more than a decade with his thoughtful lyrics and unmistakable hooks. Based in Vancouver, he started his music career as a rapper and eventually ended up as a singer touring North America and Europe. As a member of Vancouver R&B act D-Cru, Smart, with the band, received a Juno nomination for the song I Will be Waiting in 2000, which hit the top 10 in Canada. Smart later contributed back-up vocals on two tracks for Master P’s album, Game Face. Smart has also produced a number of hit songs under his alter ego Yardi Don. One of them, One Love, is on more than 100 compilations worldwide. Roger Sanchez played it as the hit release of the week on his nationally syndicated radio show, Release Yourself with Roger Sanchez.

Vancouver R&B singer/songwriter Craig Smart performs at Monashee’s Bar and Grill Friday with Rosette Luve on their Canada Hits Tour. Smart’s other accolades include songs for Hipjoint Records, What Went On and Baby its I, and singing on Faded for Soul Decision. He has found a lot of his fame across the Atlantic. He’s co-written and sang on numerous European chart toppers such as Summer Jam, which went gold in France and Germany, and double platinum in Belgium and Holland. Another single, Candy on the Dance Floor, debuted at No. 1 on the Belgium dance charts, went as high as No. 4 on the Dutch charts, and was answered with being No. 4 on the dance charts in France and No. 2 on the U.K. dance charts. He has been co-writing and singing songs such as Freedom with Tristan Gardner of France on Scorpio Records and Hanging

On with the House Keepers on Network Records out of Italy. His latest single, Invincible, was released a year ago. Joining Smart is Canadian pop, R&B, house singer, songwriter, actor and dancer Rosette Luve. “I am a huge believer in being positive with life and loving every moment of it, and if I can make people feel great with my music, I have done my job,” says Luve who is best known by her first name. Rosette first found success when she was selected from more than 100,000 contestants on the Canadian hit show, PopStars: The One. Even though she didn’t win the competition, her music career soared to new heights. She soon released four singles (Delirious, One Wish, Crushed and UhOh); two of

which topped the charts at number one nationally. Crushed was the No. 1 CanCon single for the Top 40 charts for four weeks, while UhOh reached the Top 10 on the Canadian Radio Charts. Both videos for the songs saw heavy rotation on MuchMusic, Much More Music, and Punch Much. Rosette was also nominated for a Juno in 2008 and won a Canadian Music Award for Best New Pop Artist of the Year in 2007. She has shared the stage with some of the biggest stars to date such as Rihanna, Akon and many others, all over Canada, and has been working hard to bring her fans new music. Rosette has recently been collaborating with some of the music industry’s most affluent individuals such as Timbaland and DJ/producer Ian Carey, who are featured on her song Amnesia. Her newest single and video, Ditzy Girl, caused a lot of controversy, but Rosette says that she is one to never shy away from speaking her mind. Her new song, Fire, just got picked up by Universal Canada and has been playing all across Canada and now on the international level. Smart and Rosette bring their Canada Hits Tour to Monashee’s Bar and Grill Friday for a 19-plus show. Tickets are $10, available at Monashee’s. Doors open to all ticket holders at 10 p.m.

Tenor Paul Moore rattles the windows in Armstrong, Enderby Morning Star Staff

     

FRUSTRATED WITH FRUSTRATED WITH LOOSE DENTURES? LOOSE DENTURES?

 

Since starting choirs in Vernon and Armstrong, Vernon tenor Paul Moore continues to “rattle the windows” in churches and concert halls. And he is about to do it again in Armstrong and Enderby this month. “I am hoping to bring my personal blend of musical enjoyment, learning and performance to people who would like to challenge themselves vocally and personally and I’m hoping that Armstrong is more central for those who live north of Vernon,” he said. Moore grew up in Armstrong and attended Pleasant Valley Secondary School before going on to study opera in Montréal, Europe and at Juilliard in New York City.

He has since performed with symphonies, operas and in solo performances across the country and internationally. “I was always a musician. I did sound and lights for my dad’s rock bands, played saxophone in band at the high school with Jim Howie, and when I moved back to the Okanagan from New York, I lived in Armstrong again for six years before moving to Vernon, so I feel its a natural place to be.” Moore plans to perform operatic arias as well as musical theatre numbers, Italian songs, some crooning favourites, and his infamous operatic death scene at both concerts. “I even might bring my tenor sax out to do a solo or two during a nice jazzy number,”

he said. As in the past, Moore will be joined by accompanist Sandra Fletcher on piano. “She takes the place of a full orchestra, which is a big job. She also has to laugh at my jokes,” said Moore. “The most important thing is that I make a concert accessible to a concert lover and to someone who finds concerts a little stuffy. By the end if everybody has a huge smile then I’m happy.” Moore performs in Armstrong Friday at the Zion United Church. Tickets are at the door, Shepherd’s Hardware and Margarita’s Restaurant. He also performs at St. Andrew’s United Church in Enderby, April 20 at 8 p.m. Tickets are at the door, Lookers Hair Salon, and the Enderby chamber of commerce.

Evening

American Masters ’ Tonight Show With Jay Leno Peter Popoff Å

Classic Blend has vast repertoire Kamloops vocal group performs in Vernon for the first time Morning Star Staff

Four musicians, more than 10 composers, and one magical evening. The public is invited to put life on hold for a night and join singers Helen Thompson, Chris Krushel, Jim Floris, and pianist Lori Thompson as they entertain audiences with songs from Mozart and Schubert to Cohen and Berlin. Classic Blend is travelling from Kamloops to Vernon for the first time Saturday to perform in a fundraiser for Peace Lutheran Church. The group has performed extensively throughout the area including Kelowna, 100 Mile House, Revelstoke, Vancouver, and Vancouver Island. “The group generally performs classical repertoire and just a little bit of musical theatre, but over the years we have been adding more fun pieces from popular musicals,”

submitted

Classic Blend performs at Peace Lutheran Church Saturday. said Krushel, adding Classic Blend’s aim is to make classical music as accessible as possible to their audience. “We choose pieces that are either well known or have a strong storyline attached. Cabaret pieces, which are often considered light evening entertainment, have also been added to the program to the delight of audiences. Cole Porter’s surprising song about an oyster (of all things) and Bolcom’s adventures with amour are two examples of cabaret-style songs we perform.” The concert also includes the rous-

ing song Man of La Mancha, the playful piece between two sisters, Ah Guarda Sorella from Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte, the haunting and familiar La Mer, and Leonard Cohen’s everso familiar and equally loved Hallelujah. The Classic Blend vocal ensemble performs its spring concert Saturday at 7 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church, 1206-30th Ave., Vernon. Admission is by donation at the door.

Free play is essential for kids Taking a cue from Einstein, Cedar Bridge School puts the emphasis on imagination

Lorna ChurCh Special to The Morning Star

Was baby Einstein watching TV or engaging in free play? Think back to your favourite childhood memories. Perhaps it’s playing hide-andseek with all the kids in the neighbourhood, staying up late on summer evenings and roasting marshmallows over a fire, or building a fort with your best friend and creating the most elaborate make-believe game. The common thread in these things — free play time. Free play gives young children the time and space to play and be at their own pace, and explore the limitless boundaries of their imaginations. It also gives them a chance to play out and re-enact situations in their lives that they need to work through: conversations, interactions and other things that they don’t understand. Today we sign our children up for dance class, swimming lessons, soccer and more. And our busy lives have us driving to and from the grocery store/daycare/ other errands with our children in tow. At home, television or computer games entice our children to sit motionless on the couch and be entertained by something created by someone else’s imagination. Statistics show that the average child spends almost 14 hours per week watching television. Add to that the time spent in front of computer, video or Wii game

Zolie Ozero and Callan Church enjoy free play in the sandbox at Cedar Bridge School. or some form of iPhone/iPad and there is little time left for kids to engage their imagination in their own child-led play. As Albert Einstein said, “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” Giving young children free play time to explore their wonderful imaginations will only benefit them in their adult years to come. Whether they grow up to be doctors, lawyers, teachers or carpenters, the ability to think outside the box and be truly innovative will require the cultivation of creativity and imagination at a young age. Allowing them to play and engage in games of their own creation also cultivates strength of will. Digging in the sandbox, building forts, climbing trees, and organizing kick-the-can requires determination, physical strength, coordination and

social skills — all at their own prerogative. Cedar Bridge School’s early childhood programs offers the nurturing environment and natural materials that inspire free play in the classroom and the play yard. Their programs include time for baking, singing, story time and helping with the chicken and bunny care. Cedar Bridge is accepting enrolment in Parent and Tot, preschool and kindergarten for September. They invite you to their open house, “A day in School” Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The school is at 730 Whitevale Rd., Lumby. Please call to register. Cedar Bridge School is a non-profit organization. For enrolment inquires and to learn about the school and its programs, check out www.cedarbridgeschool. org or call 250-547-9212.

Wrestlers take to the ring for Hope Air Morning Star Staff

First Nations Friendship Centre, Executive Director,

www.vernonmorningstar.com

Big West Wrestling is out to prove their collective hearts are as big as their body slams: the family-friendly professional wrestling company out of Kelowna has teamed up with Hope Air, in an effort to raise money for a worthy cause. Since 1986, Hope Air has arranged nearly 75,000 free flights for Canadians in financial need, in order to access muchneeded health care. Okanagan residents have benefited greatly from Hope Air’s assistance, and Big West owner/promoter Martin Solotki is happy to be aligned with such a project. “When the opportunity came my way to work with Anna du Bois and Hope Air, I jumped at the chance,” said Solotki. “I have friends and family that have ben-

Bring on the berries

t’s only been a few days of this cool weather but already I’m missing our sunshine. It’s said that, “April showers bring May flowers.” How about April suns bring April fun? May can look after its own darn flowers! I want sun and warmth now. Since I’m stuck inside today, I’ve tried a couple of new recipes. If you’re like me, you’ll love the crispy baked chicken. It is a little high in calories but that can be softened by serving it with a brown and wild rice pilaf and a spinach salad. Imported strawberries have been arriving en masse at grocery outlets, I suspect because they need to make the bulk of their sales before local berries are in season. After all, who will buy imports when locally grown strawberries are far superior in flavour and nutrients to imports. While we’re waiting for local berries for that spinach salad, how about trying the recipe below. It’s made with dried cranberries, toasted almonds, and baby spinach leaves.

Crispy Cheddar Chicken 1 small box Ritz crackers 2 lbs. chicken tenders or 4 large chicken breasts 1/4 tsp. salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper 1/2 cup whole milk (or buttermilk) 3 cups cheddar cheese, grated 1 tsp. dried parsley Sauce: 1 - 10 ounce can cream of chicken soup 2 tbsp. sour cream 2 tablespoon butter Crush crackers. If using chicken breasts and not tenders, cut each chicken breast into 3 large pieces. Pour the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into three separate small pans. Toss the salt and pepper into the cracker crumbs and stir the mixture around to combine. Dip each piece of chicken into

the milk and then the cheese. Press the cheese into the chicken with your fingers. Then press the cheesy coated chicken into the cracker crumbs and press it in. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and lay the chicken inside the pan. Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken. Cover the pan with tin foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove the tin foil, bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the edges of the chicken are golden brown and crispy. In a medium sized sauce pan combine cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and butter with a whisk. Stir over medium high heat until sauce is nice and hot. Serve over the chicken. Serving suggestion: Serve with a rice pilaf and a spinach salad. Cranberry Spinach Salad 1 tablespoon butter 3/4 cup almonds, blanched and slivered 1 pound spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-size pieces 1 cup dried cranberries 2 tbsp. toasted sesa-

me seeds 1 tbsp. poppy seeds 1/2 cup white sugar 2 tsp. minced onion 1/4 tsp. paprika 1/4 cup white wine vinegar 1/4 cup cider vinegar 1/2 cup vegetable oil In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook and stir almonds in butter until lightly toasted. Remove from heat, and let cool. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sugar, onion, paprika, white wine vinegar, cider vinegar, and vegetable oil. In large bowl, combine the spinach with the toasted almonds and cranberries. Toss with dressing mixture just before serving.

The B.C. government is investing $87,000 in the B.C. 4-H Council to encourage youth to experience and pursue a career in agriculture. The funding will help 4-H’s 2,200 youth members learn about farming and food production as well as building leadership skills and personal development. “Kids learn top-notch agriculture and leadership skills through ‘learn to do by doing’ in 4-H,” said Rick Kantz, president of the Vernon-based B.C. 4-H Provincial Council. 4-H members complete hands-on projects in areas such as field crops, beef, horse, dairy, poultry, bees, agroforestry and mechanics designed to prepare them with knowledge and experiences to guide a successful career. “They are incredibly passionate about local foods, have grown up technology-savvy, and are

The Okanagan Basin Water Board has approved $57,300 from its water conservation and quality improvement grant program to five local projects. “This program is a great way to support non-profits and local governments in our region doing on-the-ground, tangible work that improves water in our valley

for people and everything else that depends on a stable, clean water supply,” said James Littley, OBWB projects manager. The Regional District North Okanagan is receiving $20,000 for Kalamalka Lake/Coldstream Creek watershed protection and response, while there is $10,000 for the Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species

Society for invasive mussel prevention. There is also $4,885 for the Steel Springs Waterworks District for installation of a flow meter to monitor groundwater use. Okanagan College will get $19,415 for its Kalamalka demonstration garden and RDNO will receive $3,000 for drought awareness signage.

Bridge closed in Lake Country Morning Star Staff

The bridge that links Swalwell Park to Creekside Park in Lake Country is closed until further notice. The district decided to shut down the bridge between the two popular parks to assess whether it needs to be replaced. The bridge has been identified as a structure that is in need of replacement and the district is currently reviewing the structure to see if repairs are possible to provide a short-term solution or whether the bridge needs to be replaced in its entirety. The public is asked to stay off the structure and use the pathway around the creek to Bottom Wood Lake Road to walk between the parks.

News Green Team tackling grow-ops RCMP execute 16 search warrants in four weeks Morning Star Staff

The Kelowna RCMP Green Team targeted illegal marijuana grow operations in the Central Okanagan earlier this year with some astonishing results. Over a four-week period, the Kelowna RCMP Drug Section, Special Enforcement Teams, Target Teams, Property Crime Units and General Duty members created what is affectionately called the “Green Team” in order to target illegal marijuana grow operations. The Marijuana Grow Initiative is the RCMP’s national strategy to combat marijuana grow operations and the organized crime (OC) groups running them in all corners of the country. Focussing mainly within the City of Kelowna, and acting on various tips, the Green Team was able to generate a number of investigations where sufficient grounds existed in order to obtain search warrants. In all, the team executed 16 separate search warrants on the houses and outbuildings of residential properties in Kelowna, and Lake Country, as well as the Ellison and Joe Rich areas of the Regional District of the Central Okanagan. Of the 16 search warrants executed, seven marijuana grow operations had personal-use production licences but only one was found to be growing within their prescribed limit. A number of medical marijuana grow operations, including some that were not searched, were found to be interconnected by an intricate web of personal associations and residential addresses.

Emergency response aided on Westside Morning Star Staff

Enhancements have been made to further help emergency services respond to 911 calls in the North Westside Road area. The Regional District of Central Okanagan, its emergency response agencies and telecommunication partners have created a more detailed geographic database to assist with emergency response in Westshore Estates, Fintry and Killiney Beach. “We’ve recently introduced a new geographical area for the Central Okanagan 911 database, providing detailed clarification for emergency responders in the more rural Bruce Smith area communities along the north end of Westside Road within the Central Okanagan,” said Bruce Smith, communications officer. “This designation will help first responder call takers, dispatch units with clarified address location information.” Smith says 911 partners have been working for many years to improve emergency response and will continue to do so. “This is just the latest initiative to help emergency first responders get to the scene, where they’re needed, as quickly as possible,” he said.

Police seized 10,063 plants, about 100 pounds of dried marijuana bud, more than 14 grams of heroin, six grams of crack cocaine, Outlaw motorcycle gang paraphernalia, firearms, cash, as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in grow equipment and offence-related property. One homeowner hadn’t inspected his rental property during its current tenancy and is now faced with an estimated $200,000 in repairs before the residence can even be occupied, let alone sold. A red “Do Not Occupy” sign has been placed on the door until it can pass a number of inspections, along with all of the other illegal grow operations police disrupted. The investigations are ongoing and charges have not yet been laid in all cases.

Above: Tracy Barrie (right) of the Vernon Rocket Stars battles Brandy Coull of the Kamloops Lightning in women’s division action.

Vernon squads Check competition A pair of Vernon teams claimed titles in dramatic style at the 24th annual Checkers Recreational Hockey Tournament. Steve DeJong scored at 1:40 of overtime as the Richmond Steel Recycling Mustangs bounced the Kamloops Beer Blazers 2-1 in the Men’s 40+ Division 1 final Sunday at Civic Arena. Trevor Gilbert also tallied for the Mustangs, while Bob Birks replied for the Blazers. John Desilets took the win. The Mustangs and Beer Blazers tied 2-2 in earlier preliminary play with Curtis Gobbett and Garry Stacey supplying the Mustang snipes. Al Halcro’s second goal of the game, at 1:40 of OT, gave the Vernon Cowboys a 3-2 win over the West Kelowna Rangers in the Group B Division II final at Wesbild Centre. Paul Rosman had the other goal for the Cowboys, who had Jason Hoffman in net. Jason Bailey fired both goals for the Rangers.

In other preliminary action, the Mustangs mauled the Victoria Bombers 11-1 (Stacey 4G) and slammed the Forest Heights Stars of Calgary 11-2 with Stacey, Gilbert, DeJong and Rob Wilson each bagging a deuce. The Rangers were named Most Sportsmanlike Team. The Cowboys also sailed through the round-robin, lassoing the Vernon Pistones 8-2 in their Friday night opener with Halcro and Jason Stanley each scoring twice. Justin Horochuk, playing alongside his ageless dad, Dan, recorded four goals and Stanley added two as the Cowboys clipped TC Trucking of Kamloops 6-5 Sunday. Justin Horochuk pulled the hat-trick and Warren Gore pocketed a pair as the Cowboys rocked the Penticton Avalanche 7-3 Saturday. The Pistones, who outlasted the Lake Country Cutthroats 11-9 (Dale McAllister 3G) and bowed 10-4 to the Rangers, took the Most Sportsmanlike Team award in the Group B Division II category.

The Calgary Centennials brushed back the Kelowna Falcons 3-1 in the Division III final at Priest Valley Arena. The Vernon Speed, who stopped the Sharks 6-1 (Darcy Ehm 3G) and beat Bill’s Merritt Team 7-3, collected Most Sportsmanlike Team honours. In the Men’s 35 final, the Williams Lake Grey Fox outlasted the Vernon Canucks 10-7 behind four goals from former Vernon minor hockey product Jason Hufty. Former minor-league pro Jason Elders and Darcy Quiring each registered two goals for the Canucks, who erased a 6-1 deficit to stun the Merritt Vipers 8-6 just a few hours earlier Sunday at Wesbild. Winger-turnedgoalie Garth Gartner earned the win. Elders, with four goals, and Steve Burke, with two, led the Canucks. In other round-robin play, the Canucks ambushed the Kamloops Dirtbags 15-9 (Elders 6G, Steve and Mike Burke 2G) and ripped the Lumby Rebels 8-1

Kingfishers skate to Pirate Challenge split Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan Kingfishers went 2-2 in round-robin play at the Kamloops Pirate Challenge AAA hockey tournament last weekend, finishing tied for fourth among Western Canada’s top 2005-born spring teams. The Kingfishers missed the medal round, losing a goal differential tiebreaker with the Calgary Havoc. In Friday games, the Kingfishers defeated the Kelowna Heat 8-6 after trailing 5-1 midway through the second period, and

then lost 7-1 to the Jr. Steelers/Burnaby Winter Club. “We had a tough start against Kelowna and gave up four powerplay goals,” said Kingfisher head coach Tim Milne. “The kids dug down and played an amazing third period to take the win. Unfortunately, it zapped them for their second match-up.” In Saturday action, the Kingfishers defeated the B.C. Blackhawks of Richmond/ Delta 5-3 and then bowed 10-4 to the No. 1 Vancouver Vipers. “We played our best hockey of the year

on Saturday,” said Milne. “Beating the Blackhawks was awesome and we played the Vipers tougher than anyone. We were overwhelmed by their team speed in the first and gave up six goals. But then the kids dug in, shut down their big guns and we won the second and third periods.” The Vipers were the eventual winners with a 7-1 win over the Kamloops Ice Pirates. The Kingfishers are comprised of 2005-born skaters from Vernon, North Okanagan and Salmon Arm.

The Hill family of Vernon enjoyed stellar success with dad Don sixth in the men’s 55-59 division, in 1:45:31, his wife, Arleigh, sixth in the same group for females, in 2:04:15, and their daughter, Shanda, placing ninth in 25-29, in 1:51:37.

(Elders 5G, Steve Burke 2G). Most Sportsmanlike Team was the Hope Thirsty Beavers. Calgary Phoenix iced the Vernon Kittens 5-1 in the Women’s Group A final with the Kittens subbing for the Calgary Chiefs, who couldn’t stay for the afternoon final. Daralee Morris scored for the Most Sportsmanlike Kittens, who got four goals from Michelle Trainer in a 5-2 preliminary win over Black Betty’s of Grand Forks. Sophomore Shelly Johnston scored the biggest goal of her life, as the Vernon Rocket Stars edged the Kamloops Lightning 2-1 in round-robin play. Jen Currie had the first Stars’ snipe.

Coyote Creek Rodeo Company, owned by Ted Marchand, purchased Big Slim as a two-year-old from Texas and brought him to Canada to enhance their breeding program. “It’s just his bloodlines,” said Craig Moore, a retired bull rider who is helping promote the event, presented by Winkler Bros.

Scheller revives Fulton rugby Morning Star Staff

Mike Scheller is back after coaching high school football in Las Vegas for one semester. With Scheller returning to Fulton, the rugby program has been jumpstarted with Scheller running both the senior and junior Maroons programs. Fulton played their first senior rugby game in two years last Thursday and brushed back the host Okanagan Mission Huskies 10-0 in Kelowna. The Maroons entertain the VSS Panthers in North Zone play today (4 p.m., Grahame Park). Clark Richardson recorded a try, conversion and penalty kick for all 10 points. “Clark obviously had a great game,” said Scheller.

“He has that extra gear and knack for running the ball that few players have. His kicking was also excellent. Layne Greene and Lucas Hofer were all over the field and were tackling machines. “Lock Jordan Cabrejos, hooker Adam Woods and 8-man Kacey Smart were all solid in our forward pack, and we spent a lot of time tackling in the game. When we got possession of the ball, we attacked quite well.” Scheller said several Maroons got in their firstever rugby game and showed fine hustle and aggression. The junior Maroons face the Shuswap Rams Thursday at Grahame Park.

The North Okanagan Knights enjoyed their most successful season to date, and they recently honoured some of the players who helped them achieve it. The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League club held its annual awards banquet following an impressive run to the championship final, where they fell to the Castlegar Rebels in five games. Not only did outgoing captain Steve Pantazopoulos, a Kelowna product, earn the Fan Favourite Award, he will become the first-ever Knight to have his jersey (No. 51) retired in the

Nor-Val Sports Centre rafters. Graduating forward Derek Andrews, who led the team in post-season scoring with 5-13-18 in 20 games, and was second in the regular season with 17-43-60 in 51 games, was named MVP. Sniper Matty Saharchuk claimed Rookie of the Year after leading North Okanagan in scoring 32-28-60 in 50 games. He and Andrews ranked 12th and 13th overall in KIJHL scoring respectively. Other North Okanagan players collecting hardware include forward Anthony Ruggerio (Scholastic Award), defenceman Dryden Profeit (Unsung Hero) and Josh Klein (Community Award).

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

IF THAT WAS TOUGH, NOW TRY THIS ONE Emile-Auguste Chartier, a French philosopher and journalist who was commonly known as Alain, said, “We prove what we want to prove. The real difficulty is to know what we want to prove.” At the bridge table, we know how many tricks we need to win. The real difficulty can be knowing how to do that. In this deal, for example, South needs 10 tricks to make four spades. But how should he play after West leads the club jack? North’s three-spade rebid was game-forcing, announcing exactly threecard spade support. He got two shortage points for his doubletons, making his hand

worth 13 support points. (It also had only seven losers, which was the number for a game-force.) South plowed on, hoping for the best. (South thought about suggesting three no-trump over three spades, but that contract would have failed after a club lead.) Even if spades are breaking 3-2, South seems to have four losers: two spades, one heart and one club. And if he immediately plays on spades, he will lose those tricks. Declarer must find a different plan. There is one realistic hope. South should win the first trick with his club ace and lead a spade to the ace (not vital, but it will save an undertrick if spades are 4-1 and the defender with

one spade has at most two diamonds). Then he plays on diamonds, starting with his queen, the honor from the shorter side first. On the third diamond, declarer discards his club loser. Yes, West ruffs, but it costs one of his natural trump tricks. South loses only two spades and one heart.

Maxwell Blake Lodge On March 10, 2013 at the age of 88, my father died in the Vernon Hospital as a result of a stroke. He was born May 16, 1924 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. When he was a child, the family moved to Faust, Alberta to try farming. When he was around 15, he traveled to BC to start his construcƟon career. His new career was interrupted while he served in World War II. He served with the Regina RiŇe Regt., ĮghƟng at Normandy and on to Įnal victory over 'ermany. He came back to Canada aŌer the war and conƟnued his career, working various posiƟons, including a heavy equipment operator and welder. Dad was a member of the OperaƟng Engineer͛s hnion Local 115 for 62 years, working all over BC, including the Mica and Revelstoke Dams. He married my mom, Barbara, in 1959 and helped raise four step-children. I arrived in 1960. Mom passed away in 1993 of cancer. A year later, he married Rose and moved to Vernon to start a new life with his new love. hnfortunately, Rose also died in 2004 from cancer. During his reƟrement of around 30 years, Blake became heavily involved in the Vernon Legion, where he served on the EdžecuƟve Board. He enũoyed many hours there, at the meat draws and visiƟng his many friends. He also spent a lot of Ɵme playing cards, especially poker and crib. He made many friends who will truly miss his. Dad was also predeceased by his parents William and Alice Lodge, his brother YuenƟn Lodge in Fort St. James and his daughter Veronica Miner from Oliver, BC. He is survived by his brother 'arth Lodge and his sister Marilyn Wlante both in Alberta; his children, Jeī (Tracey) Lodge, Wat (Tony) Evans, Allan (Martha) 'eernaert, Heather (Rudy) Klassen; many grandchildren, nephews and nieces and great nephews and nieces. He is survived by Rose͛s children Eileen Hopkins, Wayne MacDougall and Allyson MacDougall and their children. I take great comfort in knowing that my father was loved by many, many friends. He managed to live a long, fulĮlling life and had a great reƟrement. In the end, his death was quick and free of pain. Thank you to all of his friends in Kamloops, Vernon and all over the province who knew my dad as the great man he was. A gathering will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, Vernon Branch on April 1ϳ, 2013 between noon and 4:30 pm Dad would have wanted everyone to send a donaƟon to the local legion or any charity that supports service veterans. “Good bye, Dad.”
