Raising the Roof

Roundabout remains on Coldstream radar JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR

Okanagan College instructor Angus Wood (top centre) works with students in the residential construction program as they put four new roofs on the confined space training props at the Vernon Fire Training Centre. The Okanagan College program has been working with the Vernon Fire Department and local school districts on a number of projects at the training centre.

Debate over a Coldstream roundabout continues to go in circles while investigations continue into its possible future. Coldstream has received a $10,000 grant towards the study of a potential roundabout at Kalamalka and Kidston roads. “We do want to embark on some details designs for Stamhuis the roundabout but we won’t be getting it to the tender ready stage,” said Michael Stamhuis, Coldstream’s chief administrative officer. But the idea of a roundabout has driven community debate over the need for the traffic measure, therefore other options will be investigated. “It’s going to include an assessment of comparing a roundabout to the other options...doing nothing, a three-way stop or a traffic light.” The idea of a roundabout was introduced in 2004 in a traffic plan which flagged the intersection as a potential for problems. “We need to do something to improve it so motorists don’t get frustrated using the intersection,” said Stamhuis. Traffic can be backed up along Kidston Road, primarily during the morning and after-school drop off/pick-up times. While a problem has been identified, several Coldstream residents say it doesn’t warrant a roundabout. “There’s some debate in terms

of, ‘is there a problem?’” said Stamhuis. “We need to determine, ‘how big of a problem is it?’” As part of the design study, traffic counts will be conducted to determine how the level of service has degraded since the 2004 traffic plan. No solution is perfect, said Stamhuis, but if a roundabout proceeds it will be Coldstream’s first. It is actually an option that would have been preferred at the Husband Road/College Way/ Kalamalka Road intersection – where Coldstream’s first traffic light was installed two years ago. “It’s actually quite an expense to operate the light there,” said Stamhuis. While Coldstream has gained a $10,000 grant towards the study, the district will be contributing at least another $10,000, according to Stamhuis. The study will also look at improving the crossing at Coldstream Creek, which is not conducive to small fish passage. During last week’s committee of the whole meeting, Coun. Maria Besso attempted to scrap the study of a roundabout and decline the grant. But her motion was defeated.

Plug pulled on Sturgis North music festival martha wickett Black Press

The 2013 Sturgis North Motorcycle Jamboree and Music Festival proposed for Silvery Beach near Chase has screeched to a stop. Sgt. Gary Heebner, with the Chase RCMP, says it’s unknown if the jamboree will be located at the same property in 2014, and it’s rumoured organizers might be looking at a venue in Merritt. Heebner said that police were informed by the Neskonlith Indian

Band that Sturgis North was being cancelled. Chief Judy Wilson, of the Neskonlith band, and Joan Hansen, president of Sturgis North, could not be reached for comment. In 2012, the MotoPlex Speedway and Event Park in Spallumcheen hosted the event. The Columbia Shuswap Regional District has received word from Chase RCMP that the event has been cancelled. Cpl. Mark Skotnicki sent an e-mail Tuesday

Referendum details revealed

to the CSRD, saying restrictions on officers taking leave during the event could be rescinded.

For the record The Morning Star wishes to correct a comment in the April 10 edition. The article on 20th Street parking should have correctly read that Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe says parking appears to be an issue when residents have visitors during holidays like Thanksgiving. She wonders if the city-owned lot used for chipping Christmas trees can be used for overflow. The article wrongly referenced Coun. Juliette Cunningham. We apologize for the error.

Sturgis North. Brad Handel, owner of Techlectric, one of the businesses owed money from the 2011

motorcycle rally in Salmon Arm and area, believes the cancellation is positive. “We were never

going to get our money back anyway, so the reality is, at least they’re going to stop creating more debt,” he said.

Day throws support behind Liberals RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

Stockwell Day sees next month’s provincial election as “the most important election in B.C. in the last 50 years.”

And the former federal Conservative cabinet minister has thrown his support behind the incumbent Liberals. “I want it (election) to be something that’s

going to produce positive results for my kids, my grandkids and opportunity for the future,” said Day, who was in Vernon Tuesday supporting Ve r n o n - M o n a s h e e Liberal incumbent MLA Eric Foster. “That will happen with the policies of the B.C. Liberals. It can’t happen with NDP economic policy.” Day addressed a crowd of 30 at the Schubert Centre, then took some questions before heading to Salmon Arm to meet with Shuswap riding Liberal candidate Greg Kyllo. With the election a month away, the Liberals are trailing the NDP in the polls. Day said the only poll that matters is the one on election day. “I put my confidence in individual citizens,” he said. “I hope they’ll view

Liberals that will provide the best hope and opportunity for the future. “All parties have positives and strengths. Our positive is our premier (Christy Clark), our MLAs and policies that have been proven to give B.C. one of the best economies in North America. All of that will be lost with NDP policies.” Day was happy to throw his support behind Foster, calling the former mayor of Lumby: “A very strong MLA who has proven him-

self before that as a very capable mayor. “He understands the issues, the environment and the economy,” said Day of Foster, who was happy for the ringing endorsement from the former federal cabinet. “Stock is a very well respected former provincial and federal minister and we’re pleased to have him on our team,” said Foster. “He knows the B.C. Liberals’ free enterprise coalition is the only answer for B.C. to keep the policies of the NDP at bay. Stock is a great support and certainly well

respected in the world of economics.” Day served a number of federal cabinet portfolios when he represented the riding as MP of Okanagan-Coquihalla, based out of Penticton. Those portfolios included public safety, international trade and the minister responsible for B.C. He was also president of the treasury board.

Liberals, they’ll fade away with NDP policies,” said Day, who said he was not getting a dime from the Liberals for his support. “I am a 100 per cent volunteer.” Asked about the B.C. Conservatives, Day said the party is well intentioned, but “they will serve to split the vote.” “They may take a few percentage points off in each riding which may, in fact, help the NDP get elected by default,” he said.

Rally sends a message Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

Some North Okanagan youth are taking a stand alongside local farmers against GMOs. More than 50 people rallied outside MP Colin Mayes’ office Tuesday to protest genetically modified organisms, specifically the threat of GM alfalfa. “GM alfalfa could be released on the market any day but farmers and young consumers like me don’t need it and we don’t believe in it,” said Kelsi Evans, 21, who organized the rally. Evans was joined by some concerned local farmers as well as a number of worried youth, who presented a collection of signatures petitioning GM alfalfa to Mayes’ office. Then armed with signs, the crowd took their protest to the streets of downtown Vernon. Vernon’s rally was one of 38 actions across Canada against GM alfalfa. “Alfalfa is one of the most commonly grown crops in Canada,” said Evans, bearing a ‘Protect our Crops’ sign. “It’s used to produce milk, meat, even grains and vegetables.” Enderby farmer Herman Drescher says being a key crop, alfalfa that is genetically modified can have a detrimental effect, even on those farms that don’t use it. “There will be cross pollination going on,” said Drescher, as bees pollinate alfalfa. The potential danger to the food supply is a

key concern for farmers like Drescher. “There’s long range fears of the organisms that are in the soil that are activated by glyphosate.” Whatever the form of GMO, Grade 11 VSS student Cory Kury also has concerns. “GMO foods in general can have a lot of negative on a lot of things,” he said. The number of youth that turned out to the event was impressive to the experienced farmers on site – from young activists like Evans to even a few toddlers waving signs alongside their parents. Facebook and word of mouth were key to the turnout, said Evans. “I went around all over Vernon, I went to the bottom of hospital hill and protested on my own and just tried to make it happen.”

I

For the birds

used to love the Woody Woodpecker Show as a kid. He was one of my favourite characters on Saturday morning cartoons, right up there with Bugs, Daffy and Wile E. He would get up to all sorts of trouble, but would always end up turning the tables on the antagonist of the day, whether it was Gabby Gator, Wally Walrus or Buzz Buzzard. These days, I’m the nemesis. I’m Wally Walrus. The birds are out in full force in ArmstrongSpallumcheen, and among the species taking up residence at our acreage are woodpeckers. We also have some chubby robGraeme Corbett ins bouncing around the yard, plus a male pheasant whose call makes it sound like he is being throttled. But it is the woodpeckers I have a problem with. I had a gander on the North Okanagan Avibase (regional bird checklist), and the culprit appears to be a type of woodpecker called a Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus). For the past few weeks I have woken up to the constant tack-tack-tack sound on the outside of my house. I’d go storming out into the yard in my boxers (one of the many perks to country living is privacy) to find one of these creatures hammering away at the side of my house. He had already punched a baseball-sized hole in the wood under my eaves. I quickly patched it, but he then added another right next to it and has since moved onto our suite. I’m assuming he is trying to make a nest to attract some female companionship, but I’d prefer he didn’t incorporate my house in building his love shack. My options for removing this pesky vandal are many, but most of them aren’t all that

At rAndoM

appealing. I’m not exactly sure what the legality of shooting a woodpecker is, but it’s a moot point because I don’t own a gun (pellet or otherwise). Besides, my neighbour is a conservation officer and I’m pretty sure he would frown upon that practice. There is a chemical product you can spray around the area the bird is pecking that is supposed to burn their feet, and thus deter them. Again, not something I’m overly keen on trying. You can buy other products such as imitation owls and shiny reflective tape that are supposed to spook/annoy a woodpecker, but I’m wondering how long that would last. Every time I shoo them away, they come back five minutes later and resume their destruction of my house, one wood chip at a time. I actually bought this psychedelic-looking spiralling piece of plastic from a dollar store, but it looks so tacky I have yet to hang it up. So after mulling all these options over in my head for the last week, I came to one very simple realization – all this bird wants is a home. So I’m going to build him one. All I can say is he better like it because if he doesn’t, in the words of comedian Russell Peters: “Somebody gonna get a hurt real bad.” This is one of those instances where the Internet is a godsend. All I had to do was Google ‘woodpecker nesting box’ and presto, potential design ideas flowed. Apparently, woodpecker nesting box design hasn’t changed all that much in the last century. The one I settled on came from the 1916 classic Bird Houses Boys Can Build, by Albert F. Siepert. I really hope it works because, while I loathe being woken up by woodpeckers (or any other bright and cheery animal), I take their presence to be a good omen. It was my choice to move to the country, and now I have to try and make nice with the locals.

A number of groups and political parties are taking aim at the financing of political parties. The Liberals raised about $10 million in 2012, with about half of that coming from businesses. The NDP raised about $7 million, with $1 million coming from businesses and another $1.6 million from unions. NDP leader Adrian Dix has agreed with Integrity B.C., an election watchdog group, the B.C. Conservatives, the Green Party and independent MLAs that there should be a ban on donations from businesses and unions to political campaigns. Is this best for democracy? Independent MLA Bob Simpson says groups giving donations to parties “buys access” and is at odds with one person, one vote. Simpson says Dix may waffle on his pledge to end corporate and union donations, because his party has done well from both in the past year. If there were no donations to parties from businesses and unions, would that restrict political advertising? Not likely. It is doubtful that any ban on donations would extend to advocacy ads, given it would unlikely survive a court challenge. B.C. has had, in the past, a robust political tradition. Many elections have been fought like class warfare. The Liberals, the latest version of the free-enterprise coalition, get funds from many businesses, and the NDP get funds from labour. What’s wrong with that? A limit on donations from an individual business or union to a party, and a law that would prevent that organization from making simultaneous donations to individual candidates to try to get around the limit, would be sufficient in limiting the influence of any one donor. — Langley Times

Community support makes it happen

T

he 53rd annual Vernon Winter Carnival is now in the history books. Another Winter Carnival passes without a true winter day, yet a Carnival that was one of the best on record. We even experienced one of the most beautiful, warm and sunny days of winter on our inaugural Family Day. This past Vernon Winter Carnival, Prehistoric Carnival Presented by Fix Auto Collision, engaged more than 25,000 people during the 10-day event, offered more than 100 events, 10 hot air balloons, and 15 snow carvers who constructed six beautiful and intricate snow sculptures that took our breath away. Participants came in from all over Canada to compete in these two events and look forward to attending our festival each year, boasting about our community spirit and support. The Vernon Winter Carnival Society appreciates the dedicated and long-time support of local government, the business community and an amazingly passionate group of volunteers and event organizers. This year's Winter Carnival was proud to work with more than 250 volunteers who logged more than 4,000 volunteer hours. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our corporate sponsors and community supporters for their

Saying thankS As the new president of the B.C. drama teachers, I am having to attend many meetings in Vancouver and I usually fly back and forth. About a month ago, my return flight was over booked and because I had time, I volunteered to wait for the next flight. While I was at the ticket counter, another lady was there who had also volunteered to go later. However, she mentioned that she didn't know how she was going to get from the Kelowna airport to her home in Vernon as her ride would no longer be there. Without a second thought, I offered to give her a ride home. She was very grateful and we enjoyed pleasant conversation as I drove her home. I never thought twice about it. A week before spring break, a card arrived in my school mailbox. It read, "Hello Lana. I've been thinking of ways to share a recent monetary gift. Yours seems like a good place to start. Thank you for the lift from the airport. Carla."

R #

With it was a donation of $500 for the Seaton drama/choir department. I am so inspired by Carla. I have shared her story with many staff members and with my students. I've asked them all to pay it forward and keep this good karma going. Thank you Carla. Lana O'Brien parking rateS Recently after putting $1 in the meter and getting two hours of parking, I went on my way down the street where I stopped the meter-checking woman to tell her I drive from Calgary just to park in Vernon. The rates are absurdly low and I congratulate council for increasing such. Rates in Calgary vary, but downtown there is nothing less than $8 per hour, apparently higher than New York. The meter lady, being complained to by upset residents over the parking price, offered to kiss me if I would write this letter. I declined the kiss, which I regret, but made good on the letter.

Although I live in Calgary, I summer in Vernon, invest in Vernon, employ people from Vernon and by the way, I love to park in Vernon. Don Friesen hOSpitaL Care In this day and age of negative comments regarding hospital surgeries, I wanted to say I recently had a positive one. I had hernia surgery in midMarch and right from the admission clerk to the nurses, volunteers to the surgeon, Dr. H. Hwang, I was treated great. Everything was explained to me prior to the surgery, what I was going to expect to have happen, what I would feel like and what I would see during my postop care. I was discharged when I felt I was able to leave. No one rushed me out. In post-op care, I had oneon-one nursing care checking to ensure I was feeling all right to be moved to recovery.

bylaw, community policing, the Vernon Fire Department and the RCMP. We are able to run a number of our events due to their support, especially the parade which takes a lot of coordination from many different groups. I wish to express my gratitude on behalf of all organizations that use Carnival events to raise funds. Those volunteers who devote much of their life to the success of our organization and on behalf of everyone who looks forward to Winter Carnival each year. Hosting an event, especially an event such as the parade and Hot Air Balloon Glow, requires our community to work together. Thank you for working with us to ensure everyone is able to enjoy these long standing traditions. Finally, thank you to our community which joined in the celebration and attended our events, supporting Winter Carnival, and to the many businesses, musicians and non-profits which host many of those events for us to enjoy year after year. See you for the 54th annual Vernon Winter Carnival Feb. 7 to 16, 2014. Brittany Sjoblom,executive director, Vernon Winter Carnival

sionals and it made you feel like you were a person and not just a number. The next day, I was called at home from the surgery department to ensure I was still feeling good and had no concerns or further questions. I can't say enough about the care that I received and it made a difference in my thoughts about this hospital and its caring individuals. Dan Wendland grateFuL DriVer On April 7, I attended Shoparama with my son and my mother. In the bustle of taking the stroller out of the trunk and getting our stuff together, I had accidentally left my car keys in the lock of the trunk. This went unnoticed until we were ready to leave. Thinking I had actually locked my keys in the trunk, I called BCAA to come and help me out. It was at this point that I noticed my keys draped over my driver's sideview mirror. To the individual who did this,

a huge thank you for your kindness and honesty. Christina goldie

Company awarded project A Kelowna company has been awarded the first part of road upgrading. And they’ll have to prove themselves to be considered for the remainder. Pyramid Excavation Corporation was the lowest bidder of five tenders received for upgrading Colony Street. “We’re recommending that Pyramid be considered the successful tenderer for these projects and be awarded Colony Street Part A (upgrading) with a 12-consecutive week schedule,” wrote Armstrong public works manager Tim Perepolkin. The project must be completed by July 31. The awarding of Part B (Colony Avenue water and storm upgrade) and Part C (Heather Avenue water upgrade) will follow pending Pyramid’s performance on the first part, as well as council approval of budgets for Parts B and C. Pyramid’s bid for the project was $902,265.58. Council also voted unanimously to close Colony Street during the 12 weeks except to local and emergency traffic.

for the fitness equipment and the water pipes have been installed for the spray park. Rick Fairbairn, WVPRCAC chairperson, doesn’t anticipate any setbacks with turning the spray park on. “Our staff did a lot of homework to satisfy the Interior Health Authority and other agencies,” he said. The total budget for the spray park and adult fitness equipment is $453,322, with $348,258 coming from the provincial government. There is also $30,000 from the Lumby Lions and $30,000 from the Teddy’s Devils and Martin’s Angels ball teams. Local taxpayers are contributing $57,064.

will be given out, including an associate membership to the club. The local club started back in June of 1953 after a few sailors united to hold a race on Okanagan Lake. From the 33 founding members, the club has since grown to include 371. The 285 slips at the marina are full with a small wait list for local residents. Williams, a member since 2005, enjoys the convenience the membership offers him whether he’s planning a day trip or a week-long voyage down the stretch of the lake, being able to tie up for the nights along the way. “We have reciprocal privileges with all the clubs on Okanagan Lake,” said Williams, as Vernon members can access other yacht clubs. “It’s also with a number of clubs down on the coast.” Williams has even discovered that his membership has gained him access to clubs abroad, recalling a trip to Hawaii where he and a friend stopped in at the local club on the island.

Sailing into its 60th anniversary, the Vernon Yacht Club is again navigating some annual traditions both on shore and the water. Making a splash into boating season, the public is invited to come watch vessels sailing through the air Saturday between 8 a.m. and noon. The Spring Crane Day will see boats being lifted off shore and into the water. Then the club’s annual boat show goes May 4 and 5 with a record number of displays on the water as well as some new and returning displays on land. The show, which runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, will have a Chaparral H2O from Malibu Marine parked off shore ready to fill with donations for the Salvation Army food bank. “Admission is free but we’re encouraging the public who attends to bring a non-perishable food item,” said Craig Williams with the yacht club. Surplus Herby’s is also sponsoring a free fishing derby for the kids off the dock. The popular yacht dogs, boat burgers and refreshments will also be on site and door prizes

judie steeves/black press

This herd of California bighorn sheep, which frequents Westside Road, will have a parcel of secure habitat now that Tolko has donated land for a park.

Come Join Us… FREE EVENT

Presented by

Tolko preserves bighorn habitat judie steeves Black Press

The California bighorn sheep herd that ranges along Westside Road should be pleased about conservation of a plot of wild land owned by Tolko Industries as habitat for them. The Vernon forest company has succeeded in having 116 hectares of private land removed from its 141,975-hectare tree farm license by the provincial government, but there are conditions. Part of the agreement with the province for its removal from the TFL is that a portion of the local parcel be made available for improvements to Westside Road, which runs through it. As well, Tolko has agreed to donate 30 hectares of land — nearly half the parcel on Westside Road — to the Regional District of Central Okanagan as parkland, primarily in order to provide habitat for the herd of bighorns who can frequently be seen crossing the road and grazing on the hillsides above the road. RDCO chairperson Robert Hobson says they are glad to have the habitat which should make the sheep very happy, and road improvements will certainly be welcome. When Tolko first came to the regional board in 2008 with its proposal for removing some of its private land for TFL, Hobson said the board didn’t support it because the regional district really didn’t want to see a lot of development out there, but he said it’s not really productive forest land, but it has high value as habitat. Regional district parks director Murray Kopp said the property is located on the west side of Westside Road, north of Trader’s Cove Regional Park and immediately north of Tolko’s log dump. He said the new park will feature passive recreational opportunities such as hiking trails rather than active facilities. Although no lake frontage is included, there will be lake views from the park portion of the property, which is hilly and steep in places. Part of the parcel is on the other side of the road, and includes a steep slope down to the lake. Asked about its plans for the remainder of the property, Tolko spokesperson Jeanette Hoft said, “There are no current plans to do anything different with this land. Should this change, we will follow local zoning and other bylaws and provincial statutes and regulations that govern land use on private land.” There were two parcels of forest land permitted to be removed from the TFL following a consultation process that involved First Nations as well as the regional district. The other parcel is also privately-owned by Tolko and is in the Monte Lake area.

Touch rugby tapping into youth as rugby sevens is reintroduced at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil. The last time it was included in the Games was in 1924 in Paris. Scott and Cheyne are looking for volunteers to help with registration, set up, supervision and skills coaching. For more information, or to volunteer, contact Gordon Cheyne at ghcheyne@gmail. com, or 250-938-1162; or Iain Scott at iain. scott@investorsgroup.com, or 250-307-4888.

Graeme Corbett Morning Star Staff

Rugby union or rugby league – it doesn’t matter which avenue players take, the skills offered at the upcoming Vernon Youth Touch Rugby program will get them off to a solid start. The brainchild of Iain Scott and Gordon Cheyne, the grassroots program will provide basic rugby skills for boys and girls ages four to 12 in a safe and friendly environment. There will be a total of six weekly sessions running Sundays from 10-11 a.m. at Grahame Park starting May 12. Registration is at 9:30 a.m. on opening day, and the cost is a bargain at $20, which includes snacks and a T-shirt. “It’s just getting these kids exposed to rugby,” said Scott, originally from York, England (Northern England is the birthplace of rugby league). “We lose so many kids at the grassroots because they’ve already been exposed to other sports.” Training sessions will involve running, passing drills and other activities related to mini rugby. By learning in a non-contact environment, Cheyne said rugby newcomers can focus solely on the skills without the added pressure of tackling. And by starting at a young age, he said it helps prepare them for when the physical element of the game is introduced. “It’s a great way to get together with other children and have some fun learning about the game,” said Cheyne. “Rugby not only teaches ball-handling skills, running skills and encourages creativity, but also places an emphasis on teamwork, mutual respect and sportsmanship.” In the past, there has been a political divide between rugby union and league, but

ball carrier ryan messer of VSS is taken to the ground by Fulton's Clark richardson with the help of ryan buick in senior boys high school rugby play Wednesday at Grahame Park. Scott said the touch rugby program is meant to help bridge that gap. He hopes it will become the foundation for a feeder program that will benefit both sports. “We’re staying away from the union/ league nonsense,” he said. “This is going to help both sides.” Scott added the Vernon Jackals, who play in the Okanagan Rugby Union, are in full support of the program. He is also hoping to have several members of the Kelowna

Crows, including hometown standout Jared Curry, help out. Canadian rugby enjoyed a spike in popularity as the national team, led by a heavily bearded Adam Kleeberger, competed at the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. Canada is ranked 14th in the world in union, and 18th in league. The next World Cup will be hosted by the United Kingdom in 2015, and the sport will benefit from further international exposure

The VSS Panthers brushed back the Fulton Maroons 7-5 in North Zone Senior Boys Rugby League play Wednesday at Grahame Park. Kolten Kirschner scored the try for the Maroons, who led 5-0 at the half. No results were reported by the Panthers. “There will be some sore kids after that contest,” said Fulton coach Mike Scheller. “It was a very physical game between two fairly evenly-matched teams. That being said, VSS deserved the win. They maintained most of the possession and held a huge hunk of territory in the game. “We spent most of the game tackling and that takes a lot of effort to continually tackle. VSS did a good job of retaining their ball and stealing some of ours. They held the ball for most of the game and congratulations to them on their win.” Scheller praised his boys for a gutsy effort, especially citing flanker Lucas Hofer, who “was all over the field for us and is a warrior out there. He is an efficient tackler.” Lock Jordan Cabrejos and prop Tanner Bishop played it tough for Fulton, while eighth man Kacey Smart recorded several tackles. Fulton plays in the Okanagan 7s tournament at KSS today.

Shamrock tandem jumps to Junior A Timbermen Graeme Corbett Morning Star Staff

One has a broken hand, the other a dislocated thumb. Yet neither Brett Hawrys nor Owen Barker has had a chance to nurse their injuries since they helped the North Okanagan Knights reach the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League final. The dual-sport athletes have switched right into lacrosse mode, signing cards with the Nanaimo

Owen Barker

Timbermen of the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League. And if Hawrys and Barker are rated good at hockey, they are stellar boxla players. Hawrys capped his second season in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League as its Most Valuable Player and top scorer. The Shamrocks’ captain collected a staggering 46 goals and 38 assists in just 13 games, to go along with a modest nine penalty minutes. Barker brings an element of feistiness in his game, racking up 29-21-50 and 100 penalty minutes in 11 games with the Baby Rocks. The two Armstrong natives have been a one-two punch

since minor lacrosse, and so far that remains unchanged at Timbermen camp, which began Saturday. “We’re expecting to be a big part of the team,” said Hawrys. “They’ve kept us together so we can keep our chemistry going. We’ve played together for so long, from Bantam all the way up. We know what the other is going to do.” After a disappointing three-win season, Nanaimo cleaned house, trading their big guns at last season’s carding deadline and then bringing in Brad Dougan as head coach.

Hewson, Thibault at Clippers’ camp

Soccer SeaSon opener

Black Press Sports

There aren’t usually do-overs in the hockey playoffs, but the Nanaimo Clippers get one. The Clippers, who host the Western Canada Cup in two weeks, welcome players back today from a two-week break to a three-day camp. The BCHL Clippers will split into Team Black and Team Orange, and practise and scrimmage for three days of training-camp-style hockey. “We’re going to go right after it,” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers’ head coach. “We’re going to work hard in our practices this weekend and then expect the guys to play full-out in our games and then dive back into it.” The current Clippers’ roster will be supplemented by affiliates, prospects and players committed for 2013-14, including Vernon’s Spencer Hewson and Colton Thibault.

VERNON 2904 - 43rd Ave, Vernon

250-545-3291

The Penticton Vees are going into the B.C. Hockey League Fred Page Cup final series against the Surrey Eagles oozing confidence. Game 1 in the best-of-seven series goes tonight in Surrey. The Vees are defending champions, while the Eagles are in the finals for the first time in nine years. “Personally, I can’t see us losing,” said Vees’ 21-year-old California sniper John Siemer, who is very familiar with the Eagles having played against them several times with the Coquitlam Express. “Once we went through both those series (Salmon Arm and West Kelowna), just like we did, I think the team is getting more and more confident every day. It’s just something with the team. The playoffs are bringing us that much tighter. I like the way we’re working together right now.” Siemer racked up 24 goals and 67 points in his final BCHL season, adding 2-1-3 in the playoffs. The Vees advanced to the Fred Page Cup after defeating the West Kelowna Warriors 2-1 in overtime of Game 5 last Thursday. The Eagles swept the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in the Coastal Conference finals. Siemer, who will face his old linemate and ex-Vee Brady Shaw, said he knows what the Eagles are all about. “Their goalie is pretty much what

saves them most games,” said Siemer of Michael Santaguida. The Eagles puckstopper has a 1.61 goals against average and .956 save percentage in 11 playoff games. On offence, former Vernon Viper Adam Tambellini leads the Eagles and BCHL with 11 playoff goals. Vernon’s Michael Hails and the Comox Valley Glacier Kings opened the four-team Cyclone Taylor Cup Junior B hockey championships Thursday night. The Victoria Cougars (42-1-2), the Richmond Sockeyes (32-8-0-4) and Castlegar Rebels (35-9-6-2) are playing in a round-robin format. The winner goes to the Western Canada Keystone Cup, April 18-21, in St. Malo, Man. The Sockeyes will be looking for their fifth Cyclone Taylor Cup title, the most of any team in the Pacific Coast League. Hails won eight playoff games over two series for the Glacier Kings before getting injured as the Kings were swept by Victoria in the finals. Vernon’s Hayden Pasacreta and the Cold Lake Ice defeated the Red Deer Rebels 5-3 for bronze Sunday morning in the Alberta Junior B Championships in Wainwright. The Ice went 3-0 in the round-robin before falling 5-1 to the Sherwood Park Knights in the semifinals Saturday. The Okotoks Bisons won the title.

Teams tune up in Armstrong Continued from A21

Dougan was an assistant with the Senior A Timbermen last season, and Barker said he is pushing the team at camp to instill a hard-working culture. “It’s been good, but it’s been tough. He’s hard on the guys, but it’s a good attitude. “The game’s faster in general. Faster ball movement and running, and better goalies. I’m really excited.” Added Hawrys: It’s been really high tempo, compared to what we’re used to. We’re really excited to be part of the turnaround. “It’s fun playing out there with guys who can pass the ball like we can. There’s not one guy who doesn’t have really good stick skills.” The five TOJLL teams will get tuned up for the regular season at the annual Archie Jack Memorial Ice Breaker Tournament this weekend at Nor-Val Sports Centre. The Shamrocks open play Saturday morning (9 a.m.) against the Vernon Source For Sports Tigers, and then face the South Okanagan Flames at 12:30 p.m. The Cats face the defending champion Kamloops Venom at 2 p.m. In other Saturday action at Nor-Val, the Kelowna Raiders tangle

Bryan Cope, who is taking over as head coach from Pat Nelson, has had full practices and said he shouldn’t have a problem using up his 25 available player cards. “We’re going to be just fine,” said Cope, who struggled to

field a competitive roster as coach of the Vernon Senior C Tigers last season. “We’ve got a lot of good athletes. “They all seem keen and they listen well and they’re in good shape, for the most part. “You’re going to see an old-school lacrosse team – up, down and off. Loose balls win games and that’s what it’s going to be.” The Irish will be led by veterans Nathan Marcetta, Daniel Peterson, Conor Payne and the Nelson boys, Sheldon

and Cam. Cole McFarland is returning as the No. 1 goalie. With just one graduating player (Ryan Oliverius), the Tigers aim to field a competitive lineup, backed by the strong goaltending tandem of Crankbrook’s Joel Fruncillo and Trail’s Thomas Bella. Said Tigers’ GM Rich Zecchel: “It’ll be much like last year – fast, skilled with pretty good dee. “I like our experience, our size and our goaltending. We’re quite deep on offensive skill.” Ryan Landels, who is considering the Junior A route, and Prince George’s Mike Quarin, a bruising attacker, are unlikely to return. However, the Cats will be boosted by returning captain Brett Hanna, Bayne Bosquet, who plays with the Simon Fraser Clansmen, and Ryan Sarazin, who will join the Marquette Golden Eagles on an NCAA Division 1 field scholarship this fall. Promising newcomers include Liam Drabiuk, Mitchell Anderson and Brock Wagner. Vernon visits Armstrong for both teams’ season opener on Saturday, April 27. The Cats host the Irish for their home opener a week later at Wesbild Centre.

Sun Devils showcase field talent March Madness was on the field last month as the Okanagan Sun Devils Field Lacrosse Club sizzled in tournament play. The Sun Devils are a Rep club based out of UBC Okanagan in Kelowna. They currently have two active teams – Under 18 and U15. The program is designed to showcase top lacrosse players on the U.S. stage so they can graduate to play at the university level in North America. “The program teaches the basic systems of field lacrosse to advanced players,” said Sun Devils’ director and coach Randy Reynolds. “The younger guys play more fun weekends and the top talent will graduate to the U18 top team which is a showcase team which plays in high school tournaments throughout the U.S. “Sun Devils players are required to maintain top marks in school to maintain eligibility on the team roster. This is a great concept that makes school just as important as staying fit, and the players

are working hard to make it a reality.” The U18s went undefeated in round-robin play at a tournament in Bellingham, eventually falling to a highpowered Skyline high school entry out of Seattle. “The Sun Devils surprised a lot of people down there and had fans coming to watch this unannounced Canadian team who were rocking their division.” Key North Okanagan players were Ryan Sarazin, Thomas Landels, Nick Hartel, Brayden Hogarth, Liam Drabiuk, Marlon Forrest, Steele Pelletier and Ryan Pelkey. The U15 junior Sun Devils went to Wenatchee, Wash. for their yearly jamboree and won every game while recording some great goals by running strong systems consistently each game. “This was a big stepping stone for our program,” said Reynolds, a realtor. “Our program is designed to get players’ game up to the next level so we can play against the top American teams. “Our guys want to go to

Armstrong’s Brayden Hoggarth (No. 99), playing with the Okanagan Sun Devils, looks to pass in field lacrosse tournament play in the U.S. university and the scouts only show up for playoff games of good tournaments. So we need to come out flying at every tournament to make it to Sunday afternoon.” Reynolds praised the Sun Devils for running disciplined systems and controlling the neutral zone which led to fast breaks and a lot of quick goals. “It’s been a lot of work to get everyone on the same page but we seem to be getting

it and the future looks very bright. We had some young North Okanagan talent really step up for the U15s like Drew Bannister, Mykl Drabiuk, Jordan Barr and Conner Forrest.” The Sun Devils could have space for more serious lacrosse players. Contact Reynolds at 250-938-4111 for summer, fall and winter field lacrosse programs. U15 is the development team, open to ages 13-15.

Blazers sweep Rockets Black Press Sports

Kale Kessy was obtained at the trade deadline to add depth to the Kamloops Blazers’ roster. The 20-year-old Shaunavon, Sask. forward has been a playoff gem since leaving the Vancouver Giants, redirecting a hard slap-pass from defenceman Joel Edmundson as the Blazers clipped the Kelowna Rockets 4-3 in overtime Wednesday night. Kessy, a Phoenix Coyotes’ draft, beat goaltender Jordon Cooke at 2:24 of the extra frame, giving Kamloops a 4-0 Western Hockey League Western Conference semifinal series sweep. “It just happened so fast and the whole bench is comin’ at you there for a second,” said Kessy, rehashing the winner for reporters. “It’s just nice to get this one over with, take a few days rest and get ready for the next round.” It was Kessy’s second marker of the night and 11th of the post-season. Ty Rattie of the Portland Winterhawks is the only other player with that many goals this playoffs. The Blazers will play the Winterhawks – who dumped the Spokane Chiefs 4-0 in the other West semis – in the conference final, a rematch

of last season’s West semifinal, which the Hawks won in seven games. Game 1 goes Friday night in Portland. Kamloops has not competed in a conference final since 1999. Kessy’s OT goal came on the powerplay. Kamloops was 3-for-11 on the night and Kelowna did not capitalize on its only powerplay chance.

B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins (right) officially cuts the ribbon Monday to mark the opening of Vernon-Monashee Conservative candidate Scott Anderson’s downtown Vernon office at 3406-31st Ave.

Water improvements on tap KEVIN PARNELL Black Press

District of Lake Country officials will celebrate a milestone today in the ongoing efforts to improve the water supply. The district will hold a ribbon cutting event and funding announcement for the Kalamalka Lake interconnect project, which is completed and resulted in the lifting of the boil water advisory for Oyama Lake residents earlier this year. “It’s another important milestone in our ongoing efforts to improve the community’s water supply,” said operations manager Greg Buchholz. — Buchholz “Little by little, we are continuing to get better.” Oyama residents remain under a water quality advisory but residents are no longer forced to boil water for everyday use as the district’s Kalamalka interconnect allows users to draw water from both Oyama Lake and Kalamalka Lake to serve Oyama residents. Buchholz says it was a very important change to the system for the district. “It’s wonderful and I’m really quite excited,” he said. “It provides that reliability. One of the things we were always worried about was having a failure that prevents us from getting water to the customer. So this system lets us sleep at night. It’s huge, a very significant project.” Buchholz says the district is now moving forward with other projects under the water master plan, including establishing a universal metering system that will help with water conservation as well as the installation of a UV disinfection system on the district’s water supply. “We’ve got a number of steps to take over the years that will take care of water quality,” said Buchholz.

“This system lets us sleep at night.”

“We are addressing things like do we have enough water, making sure the water is safe and making sure we are renewing our infrastructure. We are starting to replace some of our older equipment. The older it gets the more prone it is to failure.”

n Feb. 19, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the establishment of the Office of Religious Freedom. This new office will be dedicated to promoting freedom of religion/belief around the world and in Canada. Democracy, freedom and the rule of law are fundamental principles of a free society. One of the basic freedoms is the right to religious expression and assembly without persecution. The prime minister, at the announcement, said, “Ladies and gentlemen, around the world, violations of religious freedom are widespread and they are increasing.

An expert in electronic issues is coming to Armstrong to share his concerns about smart meters. Jerry Flynn, who has worked for 22 years in the military, will be at the Armstrong Bible Chapel (2145 Rosedale Ave.) May 4 from 2 to 4 p.m. “Jerry has come out of retirement to bring awareness to the hazards of smart meter and what we can do to somewhat protect ourselves, and better still, steps we can take to have this technology removed,” said Glee Ritchey, who is helping to organize the presentation.

nerable to persecution and violence. In China, Christians who worship outside governmentapproved boundaries are driven underground and their leaders arrested and detained. “Elsewhere, we watch in horror as sanctuaries are destroyed and believers are attacked and in some cases slaughtered, Shia Muslim pilgrims in Iraq, Coptic Christian adherents in Egypt, Christians at worship in Nigeria, the list, appallingly, goes on and on. “In the face of these injustices and atrocities, Canada will not be silent. Colin Mayes Indeed, Canada has not been silent. “Under our government, Canada defends human rights around the world. And we have not only spoken out; we have also taken action. And we have rallied support for religious freedom, for example, among the leaders of the G-8, of the Commonwealth and at the Francophonie (summits).” I was very proud of our government for taking this very important principled stance. Sir Wilfrid Laurier once said, “Canada is free and freedom is its nationality.” And later, Canada’s greatest human rights champion, John Diefenbaker, said, “I am Canadian, a free Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship God in my own way, free to stand for what I think is right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind”.

Sneak in some exercise while at work A recent survey commissioned by ParticipACTION has revealed that now is the time to embrace physical activity in the workplace. While only 11 per cent of Canadians participate in desk-side exercise, 64 per cent said they see it as an acceptable workplace habit. Almost 70 per cent of British Columbians would rather get a few extra minutes of sleep than wake up to exercise; only 60 per cent believe that 10 minutes of exercise is sufficient to make a difference in their health; and more than half say they’d like to exercise more but just can’t find the time. ParticipACTION’s second annual Sneak It In Week, which runs until today, encourages Canadian adults to “sneak in” 10 minute increments of exercise throughout their work day and provides the perfect opportunity to start a new trend in offices across the country.

“Given how much time we spend at work, it is great to see that attitudes towards workplace exercise are changing,” said Kelly Murumets, ParticipACTION president. “Now we need to transform those attitudes into actions. By sneaking in short activity breaks during their work day, Canadians will move more and get closer to reaching the recommended physical activity guidelines.” Research supports 10 minute bouts of physical activity as an effective way to increase fitness and meet the recommended 150 minutes of heart-pumping activity per week, as stated in the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines. “For those of us who work an eight-hour day, 10 minutes represent only two per cent of our total time spent at work,” said Murumets. “Adding in a 10-minute activity break is not only good for our physical health, but it also

helps heighten mental alertness and productivity – both helpful in the workplace.” This week, ParticipACTION is encouraging Canadians to trade in their loafers and heels for running shoes; and their online and phone time for a quick physical activity break. Fitting 10 minutes of physical activity into the work day can be easier than you think: n Starting a lunchtime walking group; n Taking the stairs instead of the elevator; n Getting off public transit a few stops early or parking further from the office; n Walking over to speak to a coworker rather than phoning, e-mailing or messaging them; n Booking a conference room for a power yoga session; n Getting coffee or lunch a few extra blocks away; n Starting a friendly competition with coworkers to see who

can sneak in the most 10 minute exercise breaks this week; n Having a walking meeting with colleagues; n Going “power shopping” to get active while running errands;

n Doing push-ups or jumping jacks at your desk. Canadians are invited to share how they are sneaking it in this week on Facebook at w w w.facebook.com/ ParticipACTION.

Intergalactic Nemesis targets Vernon Live action graphic novel to be staged with full effects at the Performing Arts Centre April 22 Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

It’s not The Shadow or The Lone Ranger. It’s not Little Orphan Annie or Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers, though it hearkens back to all of them. Part graphic novel (think Frank Miller), part space fan-boy fantasy (Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica) and part 1930s-’40s radio teleplay (War of the Worlds, but not as panic inducing), The Intergalactic Nemesis is about to land upon the local stage in what can honestly be a show the likes Greater Vernon, and the Okanagan for that matter, has never seen before. For those curious minds who need to know exactly what The Intergalactic Nemesis exactly is, its creator, Jason Neulander, sums up his project best: “We take the art from a graphic novel I wrote, remove the word balloons, and project it onto a huge screen, panel-by-panel,” he said. “There are over 1,250 individual images that tell the story visually. All while three actors voice all the characters, one person creates all the sound effects, and a keyboardist plays a cinematic score, all live and in front of the audience’s eyes.”

PHOTO SUBMITTED

The Intergalactic Nemesis, featuring actors David Higgins, Danu Uribe and Christopher Lee Gibson, comes to a theatre near you April 22. Sounds cool, eh? Others have thought so too. When The Intergalactic Nemesis Book One: Target Earth premiered in 2010, more than 2,100 people turned out.  Now, in its inaugural touring season and following appearances on Late Night With Conan O’Brien and National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre will be will be one of five venues across Canada to present it.

And ironically, or not, it takes the stage on Earth Day, April 22. Before you think the show is just for sci-fi geeks who dress up as Klingons to attend Comic-Con, according to Neulander, his period-sci-fi-horror-suspense-comedyromance-adventure is also funny. “I created this show to push every single one of my entertainment buttons: The multimedia aspect of it, the tour-de-force performances from the voice actors,

the score and the reactions from the audience,” said Neulander. “It’s for the kid in everyone.” Set in 1933, Book One: Target Earth follows Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan (Danu Uribe) and her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez (David Higgins) as they meet with an informant, Vlad (Christopher Lee Gibson), in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. When Vlad is killed, the others are met by a mysterious librarian

named Ben Wilcott (also played by Lee Gibson). Together, they travel to Scotland, to the Alps, to Tunis, to the Robot Planet, and finally to Imperial Zygon to face the most serious threat Earth has ever known: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from outer space known as the Zygonians. The telling is what makes the experience of The Intergalactic Nemesis so incredibly unique. The three actors, foley artist, and keyboardist perform all the voices, sound effects and music while the hand-drawn, full-colour, blowyour-mind comic book images blast from the two-storey high screen above, said Neulander, adding he recommends the show to anyone seven years old and up. “The littlest kids might be a little scared,” he said. “The barometer I use is whether they’re scared of the flying monkeys in The Wizard of Oz. If they are, they might find this show too scary. If not, they’re going to love Intergalactic.” The crew is also bring along merch. Comic books, sound-effect gadgets, posters, T-shirts and Zygonian slime will be available in the lobby at intermission and after the performance. The cast will also be signing books after the show. The Intergalactic Nemesis is the last presentation of the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Society’s 2012-13 season. It takes the stage at the Performing Arts Centre April 22 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25/adult, $22/ senior, $20/student and $5/eyeGo at the Ticket Seller box office, 549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

Gallery Vertigo calls for art for juried exhibition, Rebirth Morning Star Staff

Okanagan artists are invited to submit their work for Gallery Vertigo’s annual juried members’ show. “The theme this year is rebirth – and it reflects some of the revitalization and reinvention that’s gone on at Vertigo in the last few months,” explained Michelle Mitchell, who refers to herself as a “shape shifter” in Gallery Vertigo’s office.   “The exciting thing about an artist-run gallery is it’s continually changing with the artists involved and reflecting a bit of the shifting

zeitgeist of the arts community in the North Okanagan,” said Mitchell. “Much like the lives of individual artists, there’s a kind of through-line that connects past to present, and this is enhanced by the constant rebirth and reinvention that keeps art alive.”  The juror for the Rebirth show will be Briar Craig, a visual artist, print-maker and UBC Okanagan professor. Craig is an internationally known artist and the 2012 recipient of the Okanagan Arts Award in the visual arts category.

“We’re incredibly fortunate to have Briar Craig as our juror. He will review all the submissions and curate a show that reflects not only the theme of rebirth but the diversity and variety of art in the North Okanagan,” said Mitchell.  The gallery is seeking submissions of artwork in all forms for the Rebirth show. Artists need to be members of North Okanagan Artists’ Alternative (NOAA), the group that runs Gallery Vertigo, and can submit up to two artworks, in any medium. Artists who are not yet members of NOAA can sign up for

membership at the same time as submitting their artwork. “We encourage artists to think as broadly about the theme rebirth as they like,” said Mitchell. “Think spring, think new growth, think art – and bring it in!”   Gallery Vertigo is accepting submissions from April 16 to April 20 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the gallery located at 3001-31st St. (Suite 1, upstairs). The opening is April 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. and the exhibition runs until June 6. For more information call: 250-503-2297

Cats get the party started Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce: Got My Eye on You

T

he second album by Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce isn’t music for introspection or deep thoughts.  It’s not music to relax to: It’s sassy dance music, seemingly yanked Dean Gordon-Smith from the smoke of yesteryear, to get in your face and boogie down with. Got My Eye On You is playful and naughty swing blues/ boogie music. The kind that a kid in the ‘50s would hear while hiding at the top of the stairs at night spying on his parents’ martini and scotch fueled hi-fi house party.  Maybe he or she had a microphone and reel-to-reel. There’s good times and levity in abundance here. So it’s a party record hosted by vocalist Weeks and her quartet, Swing Cat Bounce. The party ain’t sloppy, though. The sound is crisp, courtesy of producer Jack Lavin (Powder Blues Band), and the songs are punchy. The award-winning group display the benefits of touring and heavy gigging – they’re confident and assured. The title track has a latenight, slick drive that rollicks on without let up. Weeks’ vocal sound is an uptown hybrid of big band swing and cabaret material as well as jump blues. Forgive Me is a standout track with an inspiration rooted in late-‘50s break up/make up laments. Its classic chord pattern highlights Week’s emotion-driven delivery being anchored by a

There aren’t many moody moments on Got My Eye On You, but This Lady Sings the Blues brings a cosmopolitan darkness to the revelry. Weeks’ thick-toned voice has an appealing catch to it and mirrors the muted trumpet to cool effect. But there’s no lag time: Moving Forward explores a horn-heavy Muscles Shoals mid-‘60s feel that deepens the album’s mood and highlights the group’s versatility.  Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce turn up the volume on their brash boogie-woogie and effectively bottle their energy, but

explore some other colours of blue also.

evil Dead

Friday, April 12, 2013 - The Morning Star B3

Restaurants. Recipes. Entertainment. It’s here.

www.vernonmorningstar.com

n 1981 Sam Raimi, (the Spiderman series, Oz The Great and Powerful,) made his first feature film, The Evil Dead. It was very cheap, but ferociously original. Rated NC-17, the film was disturbing and gory enough to be banned in England, all but ensuring a following. The original film spawned two sequels that made The Evil Dead trilogy one of the most popular cult movie Taylor & Howe franchises of all time. This year, similarly unknown director Fede Alvarez brings us his remake. Five young adults head to a remote cabin in the woods. In the cellar they find a book bound in human flesh and inked in blood. Through the recitation of the book’s passages, the evil is given licence to possess the living. Then things get messy. Evil Dead claims to be “the most terrifying film you will ever experience.” Is it? We say, “Cunda astratta montose eargrets gutt nos veratoos canda, amantos canda.” TAYLOR: I was looking forward to this one, being a fan. I was slightly disappointed in this film’s execution, but judged solely as a horror film, Evil Dead is pretty good. Real gore is messy and this film shows it in all its gutsy glory. I guess, nowadays, true horror gore is considered taboo and therefore it is often implied, or cut away from. Evil Dead brings hardcore to the mainstream.

Reel Reviews

TriSTar PicTureS

Something wicked this way comes as Jane Levy, as Mia, tries to escape the evil dead. HOWE: I wasn’t impressed one bit with this. To me a horror movie should have some scares. This doesn’t and that is its huge downfall. Way too much gore that I wasn’t able to watch because I’m not into seeing someone throw up blood into the mouth of someone else, or dismember themselves with a cooking utensil. Doner kebabs will never be the same again. TAYLOR: To a degree, I agree. It’s not as scary as it could be, but horror fans don’t share your squeamishness. This film is just a little too quick to be really scary and not without its faults. However, there is still some fun to be had with Evil Dead. Judging it by its own merits, as a horror movie in 2013, it’s pretty good. Although definitely not the most terrifying film I’ve seen, even in the last 12 months, it is the most graphic and it looks real. Fans of

the series and horror buffs should check it out. HOWE: The acting wasn’t that great and I felt that this let it down. They should have tried, like Cabin in the Woods, to land a bigger name than the actors involved to give it some redeeming quality. To me, Evil Dead scores high on the gore, but for scares, I’ve seen a lot more frightening. TAYLOR: Cabin in the Woods was fun, but it’s a cute comedy compared to Evil Dead. Don’t listen to Mr. Howe horror fans, just gather up your Deadites and go. — Taylor gives Evil Dead 3.5 work sheds out of 5. — Howe gives it 1.5 amputated hands out of 5.

“Color” is dancing all over the walls of The Hub Arts Collective as Vernon artists Emily Rice and Emerald Holt show their respective paintings. “The past two exhibits, Global Ed’s Worthless, took on bullying and Jessika LaFramboise’s, She was standing there, and then she was gone, addressed the missing women in B.C. They were two very powerful and dark shows,” said Hub curator Ryan

Robson. “Emily and Emerald have completely transformed that energy into something very light and beautiful.” Rice has been a resident artist with The Hub since it opened more than one year ago and this will be her second exhibition in the gallery. “Her use of colour and line brings the viewer to another place,” said Robson. A Grade 12 student at Vernon Secondary School, Holt’s artwork is an expression of who she is as an individual.

“It is positive, original and exuberant,” said Robson. Like Holt, Rice became serious about painting while in her final year at high school. “Jill MacDonald, my Grade 12 art teacher (at VSS), was a big inspiration for me. She saw something in me. She gave me the freedom to create and self direct,” said Rice, adding she believes MacDonald’s encouragement will stay with her always. MacDonald has also influenced Holt’s growth as an art-

ist.

“Her encouragement and support always gave me that extra boost of confidence I needed in order to try new techniques and extend my artistic ability,” she said. Holt and Rice host an opening reception for their exhibition, Color, April 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. Admission is a $5 donation at the door. The exhibition is up for the month of April followed by Melissa Dinwoodie’s figurative show in May.

Kyle Fitzpatrick, insect intern (left) and Dan Bruce, curator of the Lake Country Museum, look through some of the specimens in the collection.

Intern helps collection take flight Morning Star Staff

The Lake Country Museum welcomes new “bug guy” Kyle Fitzpatrick, who will be working as an intern under the direction of Dr. Ward Strong, research scientist at the Kalamalka Forestry Centre, and museum curator Dan Bruce. Fitzpatrick’s work at the museum will involve identification, conservation, and mounting of part of the Harvey Insect Collection, a large entomology collection accumulated by brother entomologists Ed and Jim Harvey that includes thousands of specimens from around the world. The Harvey Collection is one of the largest and most diverse collections in the Okanagan. Part of the collection is on public exhibit at the museum, with future plans to exhibit the additional 1,200-plus insects that are currently being classified by Fitzpatrick. “During my internship at the Lake Country Museum, I’ve gone from knowing next to nothing about insects to knowing enough to organize a large part of an insect collection,” he said. “Each group of insects is surprising and the diversity of the collection is exciting. I’d never seen a termite or rove beetle before; well, now I might recognize one if I found it.

“I’d say a good thing is that I still know next to nothing about insects and I’m eager to see what these critters do when they’re alive in the wild.” Fitzpatrick is a full-time student in Okanagan College’s science department and, although relatively new to the world of insects, brings with him a wealth of experience in natural history. Funding for his position comes from a President’s Student Projects Fund for special projects that include a community component and a learning opportunity for top students. A large part of his job involves taxonomy — classifying each insect — and doing a systematic search not only to determine the family but also to classify how each specimen is related to others in the collection. The system of taxonomy has remained relatively unchanged since the 18th century, when Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus devised a way of naming, ranking, and classifying organisms. With more than 900,000 named insects throughout the world, their taxonomy and classification can get extremely complicated. It is estimated that there are still millions of insects which have not been named. Fitzpatrick examines each specimen

under a magnifying glass to look for such clues as mouth parts, wing shape, hair, and length of the antennae in his identification. After the ID is confirmed, he then sorts the insects by family. Bruce said community museums seldom pay much attention to natural history. “But we are very pleased to have the Harvey entomology collection here,” he said. “This enables us to provide an educational opportunity which Kyle has made good use of, to our mutual benefit.” And Strong is thrilled that the museum can showcase the incredible diversity of insects, so that people can see what a treasure we have right in our own back yards. “Insects, being small, are often overlooked in favour of birds and mammals, but they are much more diverse, their behaviour is fascinating, and they are genuine urban wildlife, carrying on their insect business right under our noses,” he said. The Lake Country Museum, at 11255 Okanagan Centre Rd. West, is open Monday, Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Summer hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week begin mid-May. For more information, please call 250-766-0111 or visit the website at www.lakecountrymuseum.com.

Sick of feeling sick and tired

ear Annie: I wanted to share a bit of what it’s like to be the family member of a person who drinks too much. I know. I had more than 40 years of experience by the time I finally sought answers. I studied brain- and addiction-related research to assess my loved one’s drinking patterns in order to protect myself from secondhand drinking. Secondhand drinking is a term to describe the impact on the person on the receiving end of another person’s drinking behaviors. These drinking patterns cause brain changes — especially in the areas of the brain responsible for judgment, memory, coordination, pleasure/reward and reasoning. And we don’t fully understand the physical and emotional consequences to the health of a family member or friend who repeatedly deals with SHD. These include anxiety, depression, stomach ailments, skin problems, obesity, sleep problems, difficulties at work or in school, migraines and more. Yesterday was National Alcohol Screening Day (NASD). This year, I urge people who love someone who drinks too much to conduct an anonymous screening of their loved one’s drinking patterns. Screening for Mental Health has created a fantastic website, www. HowDoYouScore. org, where anyone can anonymously evaluate their own or a loved one’s drinking patterns through an online

annie's mailbox

assessment. The website also provides information on treatment options and suggestions for what it would take to cut down on or stop drinking. This kind of anonymous screening allows you to understand what you are really dealing with: a drinking pattern that is changing their loved one’s brain and causing hurtful drinking behaviors. — Lisa Frederiksen, Author, Speaker, Consultant Dear Lisa: Thank you for sharing your story and emphasizing the importance of screening for alcoholism. Once again, those who wish to be screened can do so at howdoyouscore.org. Dear Annie: I have lupus and suffer terribly. Some days are better than others, but most include fatigue, pain or some other symptom. Yet, when friends greet me, they say, “How are you? You look good.” Rather than greet me this way, I would

prefer they not ask about my illness, because I haven’t felt well in 17 years. Could you please tell readers in this position to simply say, “It is so good to see you”? That way, I don’t feel obligated to speak about my current condition. — Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired Dear Sick: Your suggestion is a good one, and we hope people will keep it in mind. But we don’t believe these friends actually expect a rundown of your illness, nor are you obligated to talk about it. Greeting someone with, “How are you?” is generally rhetorical. You aren’t expected to respond other than to say, “Fine, thanks,” or some short variation. Because you haven’t truly been well for years, it stands to reason that you would take questions about your health more literally than intended. Dear Annie: Thank you for printing the letter from “Rocky Mount, Va.,” who thought dogs should be allowed at the funerals of masters who have died. To have a dog at a funeral privately, prior to the public gathering, is a good idea —probably for both humans and dogs. There is a famous painting by Sir Edwin

Landseer (18021873) entitled “The Old Shepherd’s Chief Mourner,” depicting a pointer leaning against

a casket with its head on top of the casket. It brings tears to my eyes anytime I even think of it. — Watertown, Wis.

Salome: 16:1. At the foot of the cross imagine Salome’s lump in her throat which she tried to swallow away as she witnessed the crucifixion of the Lord. Who can doubt that her blood ran cold as she saw before her eyes the “cup” of which her sons would drink, and the tears which blinded her as she thought of the kingdom that wasn’t to be (as she supposed); the shaking horror that the throne she imagined was a Roman cross. Then she heard the rasping cries of the thief beside him: “Lord, remember me” and Christ’s reply: “Thou shalt be with me in paradise.”

Sandy Hatch and her family are here because her grandparents cancelled plans to sail on the Titanic RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

Sandy Hatch is grateful her grandparents had a change of plans. The grandparents – James and Marie Veness – were scheduled to immigrate to Canada from England in 1912, and they were

going to start their new life by travelling on the Titanic. For reasons known only to the Venesses, they changed their minds and did not board the Titanic which, of course, sank off Newfoundland April 15, 1912. James and Marie did come to Canada one year later, arriving safely in Halifax April 12, 1913, 100 years ago today. They had five children, the youngest being Steve Veness, Sandy Hatch’s father. “The fact for which our family is most grateful is that Grandma and Grandpa Veness changed their plans,” said Hatch, fighting back tears. “We are here today because both parties made a decision to

Vernon’s Sandy Hatch (second from left) visits with cousins in Vernon recently to celebrate Veness Day, an honour bestowed on Hatch’s grandparents who chose not to board the Titanic in April 1912 as planned to start a new life in Canada. not go on the Titanic. “Someone has been watching over our family for a long time.” Last year marked the 100th anniversary of Titanic’s sinking, but Hatch and her family – through e-mails and phone calls – decided to honour the family by creating Veness Day in November 2011. The event is to be marked annually on May 7, Steve Veness’ birthday. Hatch could not attend the first Veness Day in England, and she

and her Okanagan area cousins recently got together to celebrate the event on March 19. However, Hatch has saved for her trip of a lifetime, jetting off this week to Israel, Holland, England and Scotland. She will be in London to celebrate Veness Day with English relatives May 7. “My roots are in London, England, so this is one important trip for me,” she said. In preparing for her trip, Hatch said she has

heard Titanic stories similar to hers. “One lady told me her mother was a Titanic survivor, and another fellow told me his grandfather and great-grandfather were to have come on the Titanic, but the mother was not well so they changed their plans and came to Canada a few years later,” said Hatch, who is also a fan of the United Kingdom’s Royal Family. “I’m going to visit the Queen and any other royalty I can find.”

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

HOW WILL YOU GET FROM HERE TO THERE? Francis Bacon wrote, “Travel, in the younger sort, is part of an education; in the elder, a part of experience. He that travelleth into a country before he hath some entrance into the language, goeth to school and not to travel.” I suppose that has a parallel in bridge. He that playeth on one suit before he hath some sort of entrance into that hand elsewhere, goeth to destruction and not to success. In this deal, how should South play in three no-trump after West leads a low heart? North’s three clubs was a weak jump overcall, showing a good six-card suit and 6 to 10 high-card points.

South bid what he hoped he could make. West wisely allowed the unfavorable vulnerability to silence him. West, deciding that South was prepared for a spade lead, tried a sneaky heart attack. Clearly, South needed to establish and run dummy’s club suit. However, assuming the defender with the club ace had learned the game more than an hour ago, he would know not to take the first round of clubs, but to wait until the second round. Then declarer realized that he would need a dummy entry. So, instead of taking a cheap first trick with dummy’s heart 10, he overtook with his ace and played on clubs, starting with his jack, the honor from

the shorter side first. East won the second club and shifted to a spade, but South took that trick with his ace and led a heart to force a dummy entry. In whatever language you speak, when you are establishing a long suit in one hand, always check your entrance situation.

There will be a “Celebration of Life” for Zula Schmidt on April 20, 2013 at 2pm at the Enderby Seniors Complex.

Our father, Stan Doner passed away at Vernon Jubilee hospital peacefully with his family at his side on March 21, 2013 at the age of 86. Stan was born in Cranbrook in 1926 to Elmer and Edith Doner. He had a brother Archie and sister Dorothy. They lived brieŇy in Nelson and then transferred to PenƟcton which he considered his home town. He graduated there in 1944.

Danielson (nee Wright) Pamela Justine

At 17 he ũoined the Navy. He spent 2 years on a CorveƩe, the HMCS Saskatoon, as the torpedo man. He was also in charge of low voltage maintenance as well as depth charger throwers. He oŌen recalled the North Sea͛s storms as something to be afraid of. He married Margery Anne Selvage (McLellan) in May 1950. She had 2 children, Anne and James (Jim). Stan and Marge raised 6 kids: Anne and Jim, then added Archie, Alan and Perry and a daughter (Mary Lynn) who died in infancy. Marge died in 1992 leaving a large hole in all of our lives. They had 9 grandchildren. Our father felt this was a very happy family. AŌer the war Stan went to work for Okanagan Telephone (which was later acƋuired by BC Telephone) unƟl 1984. He was a pioneer in the industry and enũoyed helping implement all the breaking technologies. As a ͚combinaƟon man͛ and wire chief he did various ũobs from tower and pole maintenance to work in the switch rooms. He always enjoyed the work. He especially enjoyed the people he worked with. Stan spent 37 years there unƟl his reƟrement in 1986. He was very acƟve in the Legion in PenƟcton and Vernon. In 1975 he launched a concrete houseboat (The Cathouse) that he built in the back yard with the help of his family. te enjoyed it greatly. I͛m sure dad was worried about the kids disappearing on it for weeks on end but we all came back alive and happy. In 2002 Stan united with Joan Schroeder and they became soul mates. They worked on mastering computer programs and gardening as hobbies. They also loved to travel. Stan loved golf. He always felt he wasn͛t that good but he enjoyed the Ɵme he spent with friends. He had a great sense of humour. He always tried to be fair and was the Įrst to oīer help. He was the Ƌuickest to hold a door or help carry a package. All in all, Stan was a great guy who will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. Our father asked that no formal celebraƟon in his honour be held. In lieu of Ňowers, donaƟons may be made to the BC Alnjheimer Society. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiƟng www.springĮeldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
