Report targets waste water and transit costs Fundamental strategies at the City of Vernon could be turned on end. Among 113 recommendations, a core services review suggests scaling back transit service and discharging treated waste water into the lake as ways of reducing costs and increasing efficiencies. Brian Quiring “Some are pretty dramatic and fly in the face of the way we have been operating,” said Coun. Brian Quiring. The city has long promoted the fact that it uses treated effluent water to irrigate parks,

golf courses and pastures instead of pumping it into Okanagan Lake as other communities do. However, the review by KPMG states that spray irrigation costs $1 million a year, and by putting the water into the lake, it is available to everyone and not just a limited group. “That will be a controversial matter,” said Coun. Bob Spiers, referring to previous legal fights over lake discharge. In terms of transit, KPMG says that while the city has focused on the service as a way of avoiding costly road infrastructure, there is actually limited benefit and transit should be directed towards helping the disabled and people who cannot afford cars. The link between transit and reducing pollution is also questioned.

“Driving a big 40-foot long diesel bus with two or three passengers does not produce less greenhouse gas than if they drive their own cars,” said Brian Bourns, KPMG senior manager. The report suggests reducing transit to a couple of routes that would recover 50 per cent of the operating cost. Coun. Juliette Cunningham is concerned parts of the report don’t fit with community priorities. “When you look at transportation or the environment, they are aligned with (development of) the official community plan,” she said. “There was a vision created by participants in that process.” Any report recommendations regarding staff are being discussed by council behind

closed doors. “We will look at staffing to see where there are efficiencies,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky, adding that council is aware that uncertainty may cause stress for employees. Other suggestions in the core review report are using health care volunteers, not firefighters, to respond to medical emergencies; reducing subsidies for O’Keefe Ranch; amalgamating Greater Vernon, and going from one-week to two-week garbage collection. Another suggestion is closing Civic Arena, but instead of replacing it immediately, other adjacent communities should be accessed to provide ice-user need. Council will discuss the report May 13 and it’s not known when any decisions could be made.

NDP leader brings message to Vernon RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

You won’t find Adrian Dix being a bully during the provincial campaign. B.C.’s NDP leader brought his campaign to Vernon Sunday, and told close to 200 people crammed into a meeting room at the Schubert Centre that it doesn’t serve anybody’s purpose to run people down personally, “even if we disagree with them politically.” Dix was referring to an 18-month ad campaign “run by the Liberal party and allies,” and called the campaign “the most aggressive personal attack ads this province has seen against a politician.” And the bullying and constant negativity between politicians is part of the reason, said Dix, voter turnout in the last provincial election was so poor. “Half the people in Vernon-Monashee, Shuswap, and Kelowna-Lake Country that were eligible to vote, voted,” said Dix in a 20-minute opening statement to the crowd. “People are rejecting the political process because there’s a negative debate in a language they don’t understand. “Of course we have disagreements with the Liberal party. After 12 years in government, frankly, they deserve time in opposition.” Dix said he disagreed with the Liberals’ decision to spend $16 million on taxpayerfunded ads that ran before the election, disagreed with $11 million spent on a movie pageant in Vancouver and really disagreed that a retractable roof on B.C. Place Stadium in Vancouver was more important than hospital beds wanted and needed in Vernon. Still, Dix said the leaders of the three other parties and their candidates are all good people. “I think that’s where we start now in this campaign. There are real differences,” said Dix. “We think it’s time for a change and we’re going to say what we’re going to do and how we’re going to pay for them.” Dix said part of the NDP platform is focusing on things that matter to the people, and he stated that Vernon represents the heart of B.C.

B.C. nDP leader Adrian Dix (second from right) joins the crowd in listening to a question about smart meters during his campaign stop in Vernon Sunday. Close to 200 people crammed into the Schubert Centre to hear Dix unveil the nDP election platform and take questions from the audience. “People don’t expect everything here,” he said. “People want the fundamentals to be right. They want to have high-quality public health care and young people that have access to quality education and skills training.” One of the things important to residents of Vernon and the North Okanagan is agriculture. Vernon resident Jim Miles asked Dix about the NDP’s plan to protect orchardists, abattoirs and the possible introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) which could threaten standard and organic agriculture. “We’re helping them by ensuring that when the government buys food, it buys local whenever it can,” said Dix. “We want to bring back the Buy B.C. campaign and promote B.C. agriculture. Consumers want to know where they can find B.C. products, promote it properly and get consumer support. “There would be direct support for

replanting for the tree fruit industry here so they get the support they need. The tree fruit industry is a key force in this region and has been for more than 100 years. It doesn’t make sense because of a short-term crisis to allow it to fail.” Miles acknowledged afterward that he was happy with Dix’s reply. “I wasn’t sure if he was aware of what was specifically going on in the Okanagan,” said Miles. Dix also answered questions on smart meters, securing jobs, the provincial debt, liquor laws, student loans, film production and a pipeline for northern B.C. before a crowd represented by all generations. Kate Alexander, a 19-year-old Vernon student, doesn’t know who she’ll vote for next month and came out to hear what Dix had to say. “I liked his ideas about long-term plans

instead of short-term plans and I appreciated his stance on student loans and bringing back non-refundable student grants,” said Alexander. “I was happy with his answers.”

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice

Greens join the election race richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Rebecca Helps admits she faces a challenge as she seeks voter support in VernonMonashee. Helps will carry the Green Party banner locally leading up to the May 14 provincial election but she lives in Port Moody. “Historically, it’s a good riding for the party. We wanted to give people an opportunity to vote but we couldn’t find a local candidate,” she said of why she has decided to run outside of her home turf. Helps, who is the

“I would move up there and it would be my community.” — Rebecca Helps

executive director of the Greens’ B.C. wing, credits the lack of a local candidate to fewer people being involved in the political system and volunteer burnout. While some residents will be concerned about the fact that she doesn’t live here, Helps insists that won’t be a significant factor. “People want to vote for someone who is

local but the reality is, when they go into the ballot box, they don’t know any of the candidates,” she said. Helps also says that even if a politician lives in the constituency, they can’t just focus on the needs of their constituents. “They represent their party and their party’s interests,” she said.

Helps says she would commit herself to residents’ needs if elected. “I would move up there and it would be my community,” she said. “I would want to hear from constituents. The way democracy works is to listen.” Helps, who isn’t sure how many election forums she will be able to attend, says the Greens’ election focus is creating strong, local economies. “We have been part of a cyclical boom and bust economy based on foreign markets,” she said.

Independent focuses on environment

“We need local manufacturing and valueadded products from local resources. From that, we can build communities.” The other VernonMonashee candidates are Conservative Scott Anderson, Liberal Eric Foster, independent Korry Zepik and New Democrat Mark Olsen.

While he is asking for voters to check his name off on May 14, he also supports another party. “I would still see an NDP victory as a probable win for our children,” he said on his blog. “If the NDP win this election in May, they said that they will revoke the agreement which the Liberals signed that gave away our right to have our own environmental review, and we would regain our right to say no. I am encouraging people to vote strategically to assist the NDP to power.”

Another option has been added to the ballot for Vernon-Monashee voters.

As a father, Zepik is particularly concerned with youth and future generations. His campaign will centre around climate change and capping tar sands expansion. “Climate change needs to be placed front and centre this election because it is our choices and actions right now that will define our children’s future,” said Zepik on his blog (mooserevolution. com). “The purpose of running as an independent candidate would be to help block the Enbridge, Kinder-Morgan and any other future tar sands pipelines from crossing our province to our coast.” Zepik is also using his campaign to discuss, “moving forward economically to a diversified

The lease area is approximately 121 square feet. The term of the lease is month to month, commencing April 18, 2013. The monthly rent will be $200.00 per month The Lessee will be required to provide insurance of not less than $2,000,000. Utilities are included in the monthly rental rate.

erendum in November 2014 to expand the facility. “We need to get going on this,” said Ian Hawes, chairperson. “We need to put together a detailed plan.” The price tag for an expanded museum could be $8 to $10 million. The goal is to take the current structure from about 13,000-squarefeet to 30,000-squarefeet so there is sufficient space for exhibits, public programs and storage, as well as climate control for artifacts. “There will be a huge positive net impact for all of Vernon,” said Hawes of not only preserving local history but providing a destination for tourists. A preliminary design concept was presented to Vernon council for

it supports expanding the current facility. “Our board is behind this location. It’s right downtown and amenities are nearby,” said Hawes. “We need to do our (planning) homework and we don’t have time to argue over location.” The next step is for the Greater Vernon Museum board to meet with the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee, which oversees cultural issues on behalf of the Regional District of North Okanagan. Support comes from

Patrick Nicol, a Vernon councillor and RDNO chairperson. “It’s the repository for all historical artifacts,” he said. Greater Vernon residents recently decided to borrow $7.5 million for a sports complex, but Nicol isn’t concerned that plans for the museum, and possibly a new art gallery, place significant pressure on taxpayers. “The public will have a role in what goes forward,” he said of a possible referendum next year.

Credit card fraud halted RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

Something didn’t seem right to the clerk at a Vernon jewelry store. Just after 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, a man entered Gold N Time Jewellry on 30th Avenue and bought a $4,000 ring using a credit card. The card would not swipe so the clerk manually entered the number. “Afterwards, the clerk was a bit suspicious and contacted Visa where it was learned that it was a case of fraud,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “Our office was called and our officers contacted Visa as part of the investigation. Visa confirmed a similar card had also been used at a local restaurant and possibly a motel.” Fareed Lor owns Gold N Time Jewellry and was working that afternoon when he spotted the suspect hanging around outside the store a couple of hours later. “He noticed that there were three or four people inside the store, took a look inside and left, and I knew he would come back,” said Lor. “I called 911 and said he was in the area, and was told that police were in the area looking for him. “I saw him walk briskly past the store and I knew it was him. A constable was following him, trying to get his attention. He wasn’t running, just walkking. At the corner, they stopped, and I came up and said to the officer, ‘that’s the guy.’” Police arrested the man and recovered the ring bought with the fraudulent credit card. That was just the beginning. “When the suspect was arrested, the investigation determined he had many pieces of false identification on him as well as Vanilla Visa cards in the name of Baker,” said Molendyk. “Our officers were able to get a search warrant for the motel room the suspect was staying at. Numerous items relating to credit card forgery and identity fraud were seized.” The 28-year-old suspect is from Surrey. He is described as a Caucasian male with shaved head, good build and tattoos on his neck and shoulder. Charges of fraud, forgery, utter a forged document, and using a forged credit card are being recommended as a result of the local investigation. “The investigation is still ongoing and police in the Okanagan Valley are tracking down other frauds the suspect has allegedly committed from Penticton to Vernon, and possibly the Lower Mainland,” said Molendyk. Lor praised the efforts of the local police detachment and 911. “I’m very happy,” he said. “They were really on the ball.” The RCMP caution local businesses as to how these offences are being committed. A person will come in to the business with what appears to be a valid credit card but it is actually a forged pre-paid-type card. “The magnetic stripe on the back is purposely scratched or damaged so it won’t swipe properly,” said Molendyk. “The suspect or merchant will then manually enter the number which is stolen or “swiped” from someone’s legitimate card and it works.” Another variation is the suspect will insert a card into the chip reader and then wiggle it to create a chip reading error and then manually

“The clerk was a bit suspicious.”

— Gord Molendyk enter a number after being prompted. If you are not sure on a transaction call the credit card company for confirmation. “When something twigs or the number doesn’t go through and the person is very persistent about typing in the numbers, that’s when alarm bells should be going off,” said Molendyk.

One of the opportunities for consideration, as KPMG calls them, is pumping treated waste water into Okanagan Lake instead of the long-standing practice of using it to irrigate golf courses, parks and pasture. “The golf courses would likely use water from the water system for irrigation if not supplied with recovered water, but much of the recovered water is spread on low value lands bought for the purpose and not requiring irrigation,” states the report. Richard Rolke “If these waters were returned to the surface water system (lake), it would increase the supply of water available for use in the greater community, whether for domestic or agricultural purposes.” KPMG also goes on to say that spray irrigation costs the city $1 million a year and the program “ties up lands that might more appropriately be used for development, reducing the pressures for urban sprawl on the fringes of the city boundaries.” KPMG’s recommendation on spray irrigation comes at the same time as an option in the city’s liquid waste management plan review that would see effluent discharges into the lake go from emergency status to periodic. In that process, Urban Systems states any discharge into the lake would only be for surplus treated effluent not used by the spray irrigation program.

They have also indicated that discharges would reduce spray irrigation costs, including pumping the material to the reservoir in the Commonage. Perhaps now is a good time for a quick history lesson. Spray irrigation was pioneered by city engineer David MacKay in the 1970s as a way of adding value to waste material and conserving fresh water supplies. Vernon is still the only community in the valley that doesn’t discharge into Okanagan Lake and that’s something it has previously bragged about. Residents have been so passionate about the program that battles erupted in the late 1980s when the city followed provincial government direction and installed an outfall pipe into the lake for emergency discharges. Political careers were created and derailed over the matter in the 1990 civic election. The only use of the pipe occurred in 1996 because a wet summer delayed irrigation of waste water on fields and the reservoir level had to be lowered. Any subsequent possibilities of discharges were mired in legal action by environmental organizations. Based on the advice from KPMG or Urban Systems, Vernon could suddenly be on the cusp of a dramatic departure in waste disposal. And if council endorses those plans, expect Save Our Lakes, the Okanagan Indian Band and the Environmental Law Society to pursue legal options and rally public opposition. The battles of the past will be resurrected and given that there is a civic election in November 2014, the stakes will be high. Just as occurred back in 1990, this issue could sweep new faces into office and send others packing.

The 2013 provincial election will be one of the most important in recent memory. At a time when the economy appears to be in slow motion, yet demands on the public purse are increasing, voters need to pay attention. Of course, we say this for every election – to no avail. In the 2009 provincial election, only about 50 per cent of voters bothered to cast a vote. Who is to blame? It’s hard to say. Is it negative advertising that turns people off? NDP leader Adrian Dix says so and has promised a more positive campaign. But will that end indifference or will people turn away in boredom? Is it helplessness and apathy that keep people away from the polls? Many people simply don’t connect with government. Liberal leader Christy Clark has tried to be a populist premier, appealing to the hockey mom vote, but has failed to attract women’s support. Why? Perhaps voters simply distrust anything politicians say. Clearly there is a disconnect and the media may have contributed to this malaise by blowing every little incident out of proportion. As in the story of the boy who cried wolf, many voters simply tune out after a while, yet, sadly, when there is a real issue, many eligible voters simply don’t see the connection between their vote and government policy. Instead, they leave the field to special interest groups – business, unions, lobbyists – to hijack the results. The truth is that politicians will only be accountable if we hold them accountable. We have a right to toss any of them out if they don’t do what they promised so voters need to pay attention to what politicians say and they need to find out who they are. — Surrey Leader

Political culture to blame

ayne Bennett's letter (April 14, Referendum Results) poses an interesting question: How is it possible that only 18 per cent of the voters turn out for an important referendum? The reason is quite simple. Most of the voters who do not vote are in the demographic of voters 18 to 30 years of age. The reason they do not participate in the democratic process is because they believe that change through voting is a waste of time. Although I have never missed an election, I too have become cynical and jaded by the process. Fairly recently, I took a number of B.C. leadership students to the opening session of Parliament in Ottawa. They sat in the gallery, slackjawed as their elected representatives interrupted, name-called,

booed and taunted the various speakers trying to raise their issues or make their points. They observed the glow from countless Blackberries and iPhones as MPs rudely texted and e-mailed. The students vigorously reminded me that in my classroom I would have relieved those people of their

no money to spare It is time that city and regional staff, wherever applicable, got off their overpaid, lack of logic and common sense butts, and did some real work. All of a sudden the 30th Avenue project has gone up $300,000. Oops. Instead of wasting time and money on things like the bow and arrow project and puppy mills, it's time they did some serious work. We have no tax base and definitely no money to spare. A call centre has laid off 40 to 50 people, stores are closing and school enrolment is way down, and dropping. The city is now in the process of reviewing longrange planning for 10 to 20 years. It is wanting public input but they have never listen to us before, so why would they listen to us now? We need industry, that's the long and the short of it. The water consumption fee of three per cent. That's a new one. They forgot to tell us about the regular increases, oops. Doubling the cost of parking meters is just plain dumb. The bylaw department does not have a good reputation. Should the idling project go ahead, do you realize they will all have to be provided with stop watches, and cars? Our streets are so narrow now, they will have to double park to wait and lurk. But if they are

communication devices. Students in my history and social studies classes have commented on how they have difficulty relating to politicians who are over 55, white and male. In short, that is 90 per cent of the elected representatives in all three levels of government.

serious, they can hang around the drive-thrus. You can make good money between 6:30 and 9 a.m. With all of the increases that we are being faced with, i.e. the hospital, which we desperately need the two floors finished, can we really afford the new sports complex? I think not. Besides, it's in the wrong place. rose pollock hospital beds How much will 14 new acute care beds help? According to the article 'Vernon Jubilee Hospital overflowing with patients' in The Morning Star Nov. 9, 2012, "At one point, the number of admitted patients reached 193, although there are only 148 funded acute care beds. According to Nancy Serwo, acute area director, 'It's about our highest (census). We hit it a few times during the course of a year. The average census is about 163 patients a day.'" A column, Funding falls short, on February 13, 2013 by Richard Rolke, states, "In December 2011, doctors stated the number of patients daily has been between 160 and 179, or eight to 20 per cent overcapacity. On Feb. 8, a day after (health minister) MacDiarmid's visit, there were 194 patients, a recordbreaker." As a result of shortage of beds only five of the seven nice, new, expensive operating rooms are being used.

One astute student suggested that, “Those dinosaurs don’t speak to Canadian youth, they speak down to us.” Another reason voting is down is because of the dearth of attack ads we are inundated by. Students have asked me what the difference is between cyberbullying and the ads which demean and debase other politicians? Good question. Young people are frustrated, put off and uninterested in voting for people who do not take the time or care to address them in meaningful dialogue. This group represents roughly 25 per cent of the voting public and the savvy politicians who figure this out will ride an energetic wave of youthful support. As in the Jurassic period, maybe the dinosaurs will just go away. brent applegath

With the occupancy rate of 160 or higher most days now, will a bed count of 162 mean that the other two operating rooms will be opened in two years when these beds are actually completed? If there is no increase in the number of operating rooms, people on the elective surgery wait list that are presently having to wait for two years or longer in pain, suffering, and depression will have to continue to wait two years or longer into the future. I have no reason to think that the demand for beds and surgeries is going to decrease with an increasing population and a higher percentage of seniors. The community has lobbied for years to get more acute care beds to meet the need in the community, first by getting two shelled-in floors in the new tower (original tower plan was not to increase the overall number of beds) and then to complete the two floors with new acute care beds. With the $81 million spent for the tower and $29.6 million spent to complete the two shelled-in floors with new beds, I fear that any more than the increase of 14 beds will be a distant dream. The wait lists will continue to lengthen, leaving people to wait in pain or die while waiting for treatment. I challenge the community to put pressure on the Interior Health Authority so we will have enough beds for the present, if not the future. sharon rauhala

lane dividers The recent fatal accident on Highway 97 between Vernon and Lake Country brings to light the immediate need for highway dividers along major routes. Traffic closing in at 90 to 100 kilometres an hour should be physically divided either by ditches or barriers. In a split second, a vehicle can be in the oncoming lane, and the results are often deadly. Please write our MLA and city government to encourage them to work on installing highway dividers along the routes of Highway 97 out of Vernon. mike smith

What’s three times more fun than fun? The Kal Rats Unplug and Play Funathlon. The Kal Rats will be turning the Polson Park running track into a zany triathlon course for kids and adults alike Saturday between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. Competitors are in for a laugh as they participate in a twisted version of the three disciplines of triathlon — swimming, biking and running. Comic race director and club president Sarah Clark doesn’t want to give too much away but she hints that laughing too much may prove to be the biggest obstacle. “Our club’s goal is to promote and support triathlon in the North Okanagan,” said Clark. “The chance to participate in the Unplug and Play program of activities, provides our club with a chance to reach children and adults, if they’re brave, in a fun way.” In addition to the funathlon, members of the Kal Rats will be there to provide information about triathlon. Triathlon equipment and training tips will be demonstrated. The Kal Rats will be holding their annual triathlon at Kin Beach June 23. Event details can be found at the Kal Rats website. “Our triathlon and the option of doing it as a team, has always been a favourite with beginning triathletes,” said Clark. “First time triathletes are sometimes nervous about doing the whole event, so we offer the opportunity for friends and family to participate as a team. This way each member only does one sport. It really brings groups together!” The Kal Rats are also very excited to support the Kids of Steel Triathlon. This event is planned for June 22 at Kin Beach. Children ages five to 16 will participate individually or as teams over varying distances. “Triathlon has a natural home in the North Okanagan. We have the best lakes, quiet roads and excellent volunteers. If you haven’t done or seen a triathlon, come out and have a look. It’s a whole lot of fun.” Unplug and Play week runs from Saturday to May 5 and there are a number of free activities taking place to keep kids busy (which were listed in a special section in The Morning Star Sunday).

Pulling together for Art and Sound VSS opens

new theatre

Downtown Vernon opens to new event this weekend

Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

The doors are being opened; all you have to do is walk on in. The inaugural Vernon Art and Sound Exchange, which takes place Friday to Sunday this weekend, is all about opening a number of downtown venues and spaces to a variety of arts and cultural ventures. There will be drumming and dance workshops, live music, artisans, kids crafts, face painting, teepees, art demonstrations, a puppet show presentation, and a lot more great things, said the event’s brainchild Moot Murphy, a Calgary transplant who prefers to go by his first name. An audio engineer, Moot performs in local act, the Expression World Music Collective, which is undergoing a name change to Barefoot Caravan. “The whole shtick is to go to a show featuring local artists,” said Moot, who grew up in B.C. “People always hire acts from out of town. I would like to raise the local arts scene. I did that in Calgary.” Moot first got the idea to host the exchange upon meeting local clay artist Gale Woodhouse. “Just before we left for our second tour, Gale and I made clay medallions, which we were offering to the public. She helped me make connections with some community leaders, and I thought that this would be a great way to get the arts

To have a healthy arts and music scene and to know each other through that passion and love, it’s what helps us get along.” With four months of planning, Moot has invited a number of musicians and artists to join in on the exchange, including acoustic singersongwriters and bands. “We will have a ton of music and are kicking off with a youth performance on Friday with Moose People,” said Moot. “There will be an Inspired Word Café at Vertigo Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. that is hosted by spoken word artist Rawle James from Kelowna and Jessie Brown will be setting up teepees for us. There will be lots to see and lots

for everyone to do.” Performers participating include Moose People, Barefoot Caravan, Tanya Lipscomb, Peter and Jayme McKillop, Daniel Stark, Nara Straw, Tomek Masiaszek and the Rusty Muskets, Ryan Murphy of The Original Shakedown, and Snow Owl. “They are a superb band that just moved here from Calgary,” said Moot, referring to the latter act. “(I am) very excited for people to see them.” While venues include Gallery Vertigo, The Hub Arts Collective, Okanagan Centre for Spiritual Living, Eclectibles Quality Used Books and Vintage Vinyl Records, the Vernon library, and Cenotaph Park. Families are not being left out of the action. A preschool class from the

North Okanagan Child Care Society, led by Angela Roy, will lead a drumming procession Saturday at approximately 10:30 a.m. to Cenotaph Park. The kids will also perform there, while a puppet show at the library put on by the Cedar Bridge Waldorf School, also Saturday, is being held in conjunction with Unplug and Play Week. A full listing of events will be available at Cenotaph Park, alongside the Vernon bus terminal, which acts as headquarters for the Vernon Art and Sound Exchange, as well as at each venue. Weekend and day passes are available at Eclectibles and the Bean Scene, which includes admission to every venue and event. People without passes can pay $5 to $10 at the door to each event.

Vernon Secondary School students are going back to the beginning to show the first theatre production in their new school. The drama department is opening the doors to its brand, new theatre with Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex. “It was a conscious choice to put on this play in the new theatre,” said VSS drama teacher Laurie Anne Lorge. “It’s one of the first plays in the tradition of western theatre.” The 2,500-year-old Greek tragedy is about a man whose incredible pride leads to the destruction of his society and his personal devastation. “Oedipus Rex’ universal themes are still relevant to modern audiences, and the play is as powerful today as it was in ancient times,” said Lorge. “It’s a Greek tragedy, so it is heavy, but it is under an hour, so you can get your fill and then move on with your life.” The drama department is also eager to show off its new theatre in its new school, which opened in January. Retired Vernon school district drama teacher David Brotsky, who worked as a consultant on the theatre, offered invaluable help with the conceptual design and its completion, said Lorge, pointing out a full spectum lighting system, catwalk and high ceiling, as well as spacious stage and continental seating. “We are now in this beautiful theatre. It’s a work in progress, but we are thrilled with it. We hope the public will come and see the new theatre and also see what high school theatre can do.” Oedipus Rex runs at the VSS theatre Friday and Saturday and May 3 and 4. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors and $7 for adults, available at the VSS office. Reserve now as the seating capacity for the new theatre is limited.

Couture brings The Living Record to Coldstream Morning Star Staff

To say Christa Couture’s new album, The Living Record, is about “maturing through loss” will sound terribly cliché to those unfamiliar with her story. An adolescent cancer survivor whose last album was inspired in part by the death of her infant son, Couture has had to endure even more loss as she’s sought to get back on her feet. And yet, to say her music is inspired by such tragedy leaves Christa Couture one singularly unprepared for her sound: it’s said to be bright, beautifully-orchestrated indie folk with sweet, idiosyncratic vocals reminiscent of artists such as Regina Spektor and Jane Siberry. Couture is returning to the road this

week for the next leg of The Living Record’s launch tour, and audiences in the North Okanagan will finally get to see what all the fuss is about when she plays Friesen’s Countrytyme Café in Coldstream Friday. Couture grew up in Edmonton with a mother who sang in a folk trio and a father who performed First Nations ceremonial music. She sang in choirs and performed in musical theatre, and then moved to Vancouver to study at Vancouver Film School.  Couture worked in film and television for about a decade before returning to music and releasing Fell out of Oz in 2005.  The album earned four stars from both TV Week and The Edmonton Sun, who wrote, “her and her guitar makes an almost unholy sound.” Oz’s follow-up, The Wedding Singer and the Undertaker, won a 2008 Canadian Aboriginal Music Award for Best Folk Acoustic Album, and Couture was nomi-

nated for Best Female Artist.   Of the album’s devastating inspiration, PopMatters wrote, “It’s truly remarkable that listening to The Wedding Singer and the Undertaker does not feel like the aural equivalent of ambulance chasing. This is down to Couture’s writerly, at times even playful, skill with words, as well as uplifting production.” The same could just as easily be said about The Living Record, for while its story is uncommonly sad, it is transformed by Couture’s equally uncommon talent. Couture will be joined by special guests Jess Hill and Lowell Friesen Friday for Friesen’s Counytrytyme Café’s first outdoor event of the year (weather permitting, blankets recommended.) Tickets are $10 and available at Friesen’s or the Bean Scene. Children under 10 are free. Friesen’s , located at 9172 Kalamalka Rd., will be open to serve coffee, tea and deserts. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Show is at 7 p.m.

Arts VCAC welcomes ArtsBC Morning Star Staff

The arts are on everyone’s palette during B.C. Arts and Culture Week, which started Sunday. The Vernon Community Arts Centre (VCAC), located adjacent to the Okanagan Science Centre, is hosting free activities and drop-in classes as well as artist demonstrations all week long. Arts and Culture Week leads up to an even bigger event at the VCAC, which is hosting the 34th annual ArtsBC annual conference and AGM, May 3 and 4. Co-hosted by the Arts Council of the North Okanagan, which operates the VCAC, and the Arts and Health Network, the conference’s theme is “cultivating connections, ideas to inspire and engage,” and up to 80 groups and individuals are expected to take part. “Delegates from all over B.C. are coming and that includes artists and arts councils and organizations,” said Lynne Gayan, VCAC executive direc-

tor. “(ArtsBC) opened it up so more organizations could come... This goes beyond the arts councils and has really opened the door to networking and partnerships.” The conference will include workshops as well as a Friday night reception at the Mackie Lake House and a Saturday closing reception at the VCAC. Participants who arrive early can also partake in a gallery and studio tour of the region on the evening of May 2. The VCAC is also holding an art exhibition during the conference. The show will take place in the centre’s lobby and follows the theme of the conference: art that inspires and nurtures. “We already have a lot of beautiful work for the show. The lobby is going to look great,” said Gayan. “For a small community, we have so much going on.” More on the conference can be found at www.artsbc.org or call the VCAC at 250-542-6243.

Crisis Line is faced with a growing demand Volunteers needed for training session starting Friday

Morning Star Staff

An ever-expanding number of callers is reaching out to Vernon’s PIN Crisis Line for support. Last year, PIN’s mandate was expanded to include answering calls from throughout the Interior Health Authority region. This means Vernon’s volunteers now answer calls from Kamloops, Penticton, Cranbrook, Williams Lake, and everywhere in between. The services provided to these areas by volunteers has also grown; in addition to answering a traditional Crisis Line, 1-888-353-2273, volunteers are also now answering the provincial 1-800-SUICIDE and 310Mental Health Information Line, (310-6789). As a result of these changes, Vernon’s Crisis Line wrkers now answer an average of

600 calls a month. This growth has resulted in a 50 per cent increase in call volume. Part of this is due to the Crisis Line’s new call routing technology. Whereas callers used to get a message to try again later when the Vernon line was busy, callers are now forwarded to another Crisis Line within the Interior. Likewise, when callers are unable to reach their local crisis lines in other areas, their calls can end up routed to Vernon. As a whole, calls to the Interior Crisis Line Network have an answer rate of 93 per cent, and the Interior Crisis Line expects to improve these numbers further as it continues to refine the integration of its services. While the core service of active listening and emotional support assists callers to come up with solutions to their situation, Crisis Line volunteers help one of every six callers to connect with additional support from local agencies. The most prevalent of these is Mental Health and Addictions Emergency Services, which provided professional support for more than 70 crisis line calls from the North Okanagan last month.

The scope and depth of the crisis calls is unpredictable, but the volunteers apply the same fundamental skills they learned in training to every call: developing a connection with callers, assessing callers’ situation, and working with them to help them identify healthy solutions to their problems. Of additional benefit, volunteers learn to practise these skills with an open, nonjudgmental, compassionate attitude regardless of caller’s circumstances. This training takes place in two stages, with the first 18 hours being conducted in a classroom setting, and the other 20 hours in a small group, one-on-one environment. This time includes comprehensive practice and review of procedures and policy before volunteers begin answering calls. The next Crisis Line volunteer training group starts Friday, with additional training every three months. If interested, you can call the Crisis Line’s program office at 250-545-8074, e-mail Crisisline_vc@shaw. ca, or apply online at www.peopleinneed. ca for more information.

and hot chocolate. “The Kiss FM Events Crew will be there to get things started,” said René Gendron, with the Vernon MS Society. “We plan to make this the best walk and silent auction ever, and schools, sports teams, organizations and other charities are invited to enter and use the 50/50 plan, where you can raise funds for MS and keep half the money you bring in.” The society gives tax receipts for the whole amount raised. Last year, Silver Star elementary school raised close to $8,000

by hosting a walk at the school. One year, Fulton grads made $2,300 and last year, The Armstrong/Enderby Skating Club made about $1,600. “We make it easy for groups to raise funds for themselves,” said Gendron. “This is a real community event — come out and enjoy the event because we feel that once you try it you will want to do it every year.” For more information, or for a pledge form, call the Vernon MS Society office at 250-542-2241.

Wrap it up for a treat

W

ith all the tragedies in the world in the past 10 days weighing down on so many of us, all I can think of is looking for some kind of comfort where there is none. And there is really nothing any of us can do about any of it, except perhaps to offer up our prayers for the lives lost, for the injured, and for the families forever changed. For me, I have a bad habit of looking to food for comfort and with that in mind I’ll relate a new experience I’ve had. I don’t know how anyone could have lived for as long as I have and not eaten cathi Litzenberger any form of lettuce wraps, but until a few weeks ago I had never tried them. Lucky for me, my first experience was at Temptasian Restaurant in Vernon where they were so delicious that I’m hooked, and have been looking for recipes ever since. The following pork and chicken wraps are a great place to start.

Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 3/4 lb boneless pork chop, cut with the grain into 1/4 x 2-inch strips 1 (16 ounce) bag coleslaw mix 2 cups shredded carrots 1 bunch scallion, trimmed and thinly sliced 4 garlic cloves, chopped 1/2 cup sweet red chili sauce (such as Thai Kitchen) 10 large leaves bibb lettuce 1/2 cucumber, seeded, peeled and cut into matchsticks Fresh mint Lime wedge In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of

the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook for 3 minutes until cooked through. Remove to plate and keep warm. Add remaining tablespoon oil, the cole slaw mix, carrots, scallion and garlic. Cook 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in sweet chili sauce and reserved pork and heat through. To serve, place about 1/2 cup filling in centre of each lettuce leaf. Add some cucumber and mint. Spritz with lime, roll up and serve. Note: Can also be served wrapped in rice flour tortillas. Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps 16 Boston, bibb or butter lettuce leaves 1 pound ground chicken breast 1 large onion, chopped 2 tablespoons minced garlic 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce 1/4 cup hoisin sauce 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or red wine vinegar 2 teaspoons Asian chili pepper sauce (see Note) 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced, then chopped 1 carrot, julienned 1 can (4 ounce size) sliced water chestnuts, drained, finely chopped 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced 2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil Rinse lettuce leaves, keeping them whole. Set aside to drain. Cook chicken in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring often to break up the meat. Add onion, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar and chili sauce. Add celery and carrot; cook until meat is crumbled and brown. Add water chestnuts and green onions. Cook until onions begin to wilt, about 2 minutes. Stir in sesame oil. Arrange lettuce leaves on the outer edge of a platter. Spoon meat mixture in centre. Allow diners to spoon meat mixture into lettuce leaves and eat like a taco. Note: Asian chili pepper sauce can be found in the Asian section of most supermarkets. Some brands contain garlic, which is fine. You can use 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1/2 teaspoon dried red chili flakes instead.

Day Without ShoeS

Grade 7 Vernon Christian School student Rianna Smid (below) gets her foot painted as she makes her ‘mark’ to display her pledge to going without shoes for the day. Students at the school went barefoot for the One Day Without Shoes global event, where they raised funds to sponsor a child and raise awareness for the millions of children worldwide that walk miles every day without shoes.

Discreetness

Traffic signal washing is scheduled throughout the City of Vernon for six to eight weeks beginning April 29. “We ask that the travelling public be patient, slow down and use care when approaching intersections,” said James Rice, public works manager.

Pre-registration is required and organizers request signing up three days prior to the workshop space due to the limited space. You can sign up at dsbreception@vernon.ca or call 250-550-3634. The workshops are also designed to help people get ride for the annual provincewide Bike To Work celebration, which runs May 27 to June 2. There will be several events in Vernon held during the week.

A 42-year-old West Kelowna man is in critical condition and a 50-yearold Lake Country man suffered serious injuries after a head-on collision early Monday morning. Kelowna RCMP received a report of a multiple vehicle collision on Glenmore Road near Slater Road at around 4:40 a.m. The two vehicles had apparently struck head-on and the northbound driver was trapped in his vehicle. The other driver was found to be walking around the scene and appeared dazed from the impact. The Kelowna Fire Department

extricated the West Kelowna man from his vehicle and both men were rushed to hospital with serious injuries. The West Kelowna man remains in critical condition while the Lake Country man suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries. The road was blocked while police conducted a scene survey. Analysis of the data is not yet complete but speed and wet road conditions appear to have been factors in the crash. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Central Okanagan Traffic Services and ask for Const. Doane at 250-980-5353.

People stroll by a lamp standard on 30th Avenue that was yarn bombed last fall. The Vernon Public Art Gallery and Gallery Vertigo’s knitting circle are planning another yarn bombing Friday, this time on the two blocks along 30th Avenue currently under construction.

Yarn brings colour to town Morning Star Staff

In celebration of B.C. Arts and Culture Week, the Vernon Public Art Gallery, Gallery Vertigo’s knitting circle, and members of the public are installing yarn bombs in Vernon’s downtown core. The event, which employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre, takes place Friday in the area of 30th Avenue currently undergoing revitalization. This isn’t the first time Vernon has been bombed with yarn. The VPAG organized an event last fall during a Culture Days event, and 30th Avenue was attacked by tree sweaters, pom-poms, and three -dimensional creatures. “We had dozens of artworks hung on lamp posts, benches and garbage cans, all along 30th Avenue. Participants had a great time installing the works and passers-by stopped and smiled and asked lots of questions about the project,” said Kelly McIntosh, VPAG marketing and programming coordinator. “We wanted to build on the success from our first attempt and also help to encourage pedestrian traffic along 30th Avenue that is now under construction.” The Downtown Vernon Association has invited the participants to yarn bomb the portion of 30th Avenue from 33rd to 35th Streets, sectioned off during revitalization, as part of the Diggin’ it Downtown initiative to continue to bring people and business to the area. The area will be transformed into public art with soft, bright and inspiring knitting projects. Participants are invited to use the Modu-Loc fencing for a site-specific installation, under the theme of springtime: growing and blooming trees, flowers, and vines. “Yarn bombing not only changes the appearance of a location visually, but it also helps create awareness about the impact of public art in a community. Vernon is a vibrant arts community and this is just one small aspect of how we can stand out as a unique place,” said Dauna Kennedy Grant, VPAG executive director. Participants are asked to meet at the gallery Friday at 1 p.m. in preparation for the installation, and to bring their knitted or crocheted creations, extra yarn, scissors and a yarn hook. If knitters are unable to attend, but wish to contribute artwork, artists are welcome to drop off their work at the gallery ahead of time. For more information, visit www.vernonpublicartgallery.com or phone 250-545-3173.

World Laughter Day at Memorial Park in Armstrong on Sunday, May 5, at 2 p.m. Everybody is invited to attend. World Laughter Day was created by Dr. Madan Kataria in 1998. It is celebrated in more than 70 countries around the world. For centuries, everybody has known that laughter is the best medicine. With laughter exercises, people can experience the positive emotions and benefits. Some of the myths regarding laughter are: 1. You need a reason to laugh. Not true! Laughter is unreasonable, illogical and nonrational. Simulated (fake) laughter has the same effect as stimulated laughter. 2. You need to be happy to laugh. But really, you are happy because you laugh. 3. You need a sense of humour to laugh. But really, humour equals laughter. Laughter is universal. The World Laughter Circle is just one of the many events celebrating this special year. For more information on other centennial events go to www. armstrong100.ca. And like Armstrong100 on Facebook for a chance to win some great centennial prizes.

News Skills training a key election topic tom fletcher Black Press

Parties in the May 14 B.C. election have highlighted their commitments to improve post-secondary skills training. The province faces a wave of baby boomer retirements, shortages in trades and industrial jobs, an increase in temporary foreign workers and under-employment of some university graduates. Trades and apprenticeship training is a major point of dispute. The B.C. Liberal-created Industry Trade Authority has increased apprentices from 16,000 in 2001 to 34,000, but the NDP counters that percentage completion rates have declined. Independent Contractors and Businesses Association president Phil Hochstein argues that with many more young people in the apprenticeship system, the number of graduates is at a record level. Platform highlights: n The B.C. NDP’s biggest commitment is $100 million for a post-secondary student grant program, to be funded by a capital tax on large financial institutions. NDP leader Adrian Dix also promises $40 million new investment for skills training, to “increase apprenticeship training spaces, shorten completion times and improve completion rates.” The NDP notes that while the B.C. Liberal government touts its jobs plan in ads, its February budget projects a $42 million cut to the advanced education ministry over three years. n The B.C. Liberals highlight a $75 million commitment for upgrading training facilities and equipment, on top of the $500 million annual skills training budget. The B.C. Liberals emphasize plans to expand

Their platform also promises to develop “relevant training programs” for B.C. residents to work in the LNG industry. n The B.C. Conservatives promise to “increase training and apprenticeships in the trades and technical sector,” but don’t specify how. They also promise to increase on-line learning capabilities in colleges and technical institutes, and give qualified B.C. students priority for admission to the province’s post-secondary institutions. n The B.C. Green Party promises to eliminate interest on student debt over five years, “immediately” cut tuition by 20 per cent, create a grant program for low-income students, increase core funding for colleges and universities by $200 million and provide training for laid-off workers.

Rocks’ offence idle Morning Star Staff

The Armstrong Shamrocks are falling behind early in games, and until they find their offensive mojo, winning in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League won’t be easy. The Irish trailed 3-0 after a period and couldn’t claw their way back as they fell 6-1 to the host Kamloops Venom Saturday night at Memorial Arena. Head coach Bryan Cope said Armstrong’s defence is doing enough to keep them competitive, but he needs to see more at the other end of the floor. “We’re doing alright on defence, we just have to get our offence rolling,” said Cope. “There’ a couple guys that are getting the opportunities, we’re just not burying them.” Cope also wants to see the 0-2 Shamrocks come out with a little more urgency when they host the Vernon Source For Sports Tigers Saturday at Nor-Val Sports Centre. “We have to start better as a club,” he said. “Our first periods are not good and we’re putting ourselves in a hole early.” Meanwhile, Stephane Richard needed all of six minutes to fill his offensive quota Saturday at Nor-Val. The North Okanagan Legends sniper netted a natural hat trick in that span, leading his team to a 9-2 Bantam A2 lacrosse win over the visiting Kelowna Kodiaks. The Legends, who held period leads of 4-1 and 6-1, got other offence from Conor Webb (2), Jakob Schweb (1+2), Kayden Beauregard, Brett Olsen and Mason McLennan.

Assists went to Dawson Boyce (2), Niklas Luttmerding (2), Jayden Jensen-Hunter (2), Brady Marzocco and Cameron Lock. Both Kelowna goals were scored on the powerplay while the Legends’ Jakob Schweb answered with one man-advantage goal. Olsen and Beauregard each tallied once on the shortman. Webb showed great ball control in pacing the North Okanagan attack with 3+2 in a 10-2 thrashing of the Kamloops Rattlers Sunday. Richard, Schweb and Olsen each chipped in with 2+1, and McLennan supplied a single for the Legends, who led 9-0 going into the final period. Luttmerding, Chase Wirth, Jensen-Hunter and Nicholas Mann had assists. Jayden Jensen-Hunter worked the picks with both crease men and top men consistently, and netminder Troy Cuzzetto stood solid for both games, facing a total of 68 shots. In Bantam B1 action, the Legends outlasted the Rattlers 7-5 Sunday in Kamloops. After allowing a goal on the game’s first shot, North Okanagan replied with a Brett Williams snipe to equalize before the intermission. The Legends came out hard to start the second period, scoring four straight goals from Tanner Franje-Gilbert, Mason Pool, Chase Bronson and Shelby Connors. The Rattlers scored three of their own to make it 5-4 heading into the final frame. The third period was penalty filled as both teams were physical. Williams struck again early in the third to put the Legends up by

Mason Pool added an empty-netter with one minute to go. Taylor Pelletier was once again strong in the Legends goal, stopping several breakaways, two late in the game. In Tykes play, North Okanagan #1 split its weekend games at Nicola Valley Arena, starting with a 5-1 win over host Merritt.

Backstopped by netminder Tyler Martin and solid defending by Carston Disher, the Legends got a pair of goals each from Braydon Schwaerzle and Nate Williamson, and a single from Tegan Evans. Schwaerzle handled the offence in North Okanagan’s the second tilt, a 4-2 loss to Kelowna #2. Grady Krause played well defensively in front of netminder Lucas Aeichele.

Kazuki Comley, Adam Murdock, CJ Storey and Perez Vermeulen all enjoyed scoring chances. Murdoch took a ball in the face for the team which resulted in a bloodied mouth, but he kept running hard. Midfielders Joe Eggert, Ben Purvis, Braeden Cooper, Daniel Paskiewich, Bryce Turner and Noah Schneider moved the ball well as Vernon kept the Pinnacles hemmed in for the majority of play. The back line of Trent Graham, Kody Kongsdorf, Adam Raber, Jarrod Latta and Dylan Huber sparkled. Roy Cooper’s crew is 1-0-1. In boys U14 action on a sunny Sunday afternoon at Marshall Field #5, Vernon battled Penticton a 1-1 tie. Vernon gained control early and in the 15th minute, a Penticton clearing attempt landed at Shey Townley’s feet well outside the 18, and with no one to challenge, he unleashed a boomer that fooled the keeper. Vernon kept pressing but could not another goal. That came back to haunt Vernon early in the second half as Penticton finally got the break they needed and converted. United’s best chance to go ahead came off a left corner which saw Kevin Thibault’s shot denied by the outstretched leg of the keeper. Vernon also had a couple free kicks from within range but Malcolm Wiens shot wide and Owen Burnet could not beat the defensive wall. The back end played extremely well, led by Reed Cashato and captain Sam Eggert. Townley and Charis Ondrik were masterful up front, while hustle and hard work from

Elias Jensen created some great free kick opportunities in the second half. Gavin Mason and Wiens had strong games in the midfield and got some great support on the wings from Wyatt Carter, Connor Johnston and Cameron MacKenzie. Burnet, Peter Hirschkorn and Connor London also had mighty games on defence in support of a sharp Connor Holliday as United went to 1-0-1. “We played well, but missed a chance to collect all three points,” said Vernon coach Rolf Hirschkorn. However, on the bright side, last year we lost 7-2 and 5-2 to Penticton and today we served notice to them and the league that we’ll be far more competitive this year.” The visiting United U17 boys lost 3-0 to the Penticton U18s Sunday, giving ip two goals on penalty kicks. Lucas Ross played a worthy midfield game as did the offensive trio of Liam Eddy, Dylan Towns and Nate Gatenby. United is 1-2. In EA Sports B.C. Premier League U13 boys play, the Thomopson Okanagan FC allowed two goals in the first 12 minutes and lost 4-0 to the Coastal Selects Saturday at MacDonald Park. The Thompson Okanagan coaching staff said the early loss of centreback Ryan Hoogveld did not help, but they praised the work of Vernon’s Owen Miller for holding the TOFC defence together. Miller had the best shot in the game for TOFC when his 25-yard direct free kick hit the Coastal cross bar with their keeper well beaten. Finn Plummer is the only other Vernon player on the TOFC roster.

Under 11 girls earn weekend double dip blast after beating two players to make it 3-0. Barnett finished the scoring on a late breakaway. Callie Bertram made a pure outlet pass to Keaira Korberg, who took one touch and fed Barnett. Kenzie Koshure and Keeley Tiesen shut down Penticton’s forwards. In Game 2, Elena Friesen took a pass from Claeys down the right side and put it low, near corner to jumpstart United. Emily Boden stripped a defender, took the ball down the left side and fed Barnett, who cranked it for a 2-0 lead. Carly Larsen played ruthless defence and Rane Smith was a worker in the midfield.

Wurtele runner-up in New Orleans

Photo suBmitted

Defending champion Trevor Wurtele came within five seconds of defending his Ironman New Orleans 70.3 last weekend in Louisiana. After posting the fastest bike split of the day, Wurtele, formerly of Vernon, caught world record holder Andreas Raelert of Germany and the pair ran neck and neck to the finish where Raelert outsprinted Wurtele for first place. The German finished the 113-kilometre event (1.9-km swim, 90-km bike and 21.1-km run) in three hours, 46 minutes and 54 seconds. In third was Santiago Ascenco of Brazil (3:50:38). Wurtele’s wife Heather also started the Ironman season with impressive finishes, winning Ironman 70.3 Panama, taking fourth in the International Abu Dhabi Triathlon and, most recently, earning runner-up at Ironman 70.3 California. The Wurteles currently reside in Kelowna, but spend much of their time training base in Utah. Their next event will be Ironman 70.3 St. George in Utah, which doubles as the U.S. Pro Championships.

the game to overtime. Tambellini, who Surrey grabbed at the trade deadline from the Vernon Vipers, put the series to bed 2:34 into the second overtime period when he one-timed a pass from Demico Hannoun past Katunar. Said Shaw, of Tambellini: “He’s got a pretty nice shot and didn’t make a mistake. Everything else is kind of a blur.” The championship held extra meaning for Shaw, who was released by the Vees two games into the 2011/12 season, before hooking up with the Coquitlam Express. “Getting released by them, I thought it was the worst thing in the world when it happened,” Shaw explained. “But I moved on and found a new home here in Surrey. I’m happy to be here and happy to be a champion.” Surrey’s other goal came early, off the stick of captain Brett Mulcahy 1:55 into the game when he knocked in a rebound from a Michael Stenerson shot. An emotional Vees’ head coach-GM Fred Harbinson said his players laid it all on the line. “They have nothing to hold their heads down about. They battled right to the end. It was a heck of a series, two great teams.

STK #13T18455

For the fourth time in franchise history – and first time since 2005 – the Surrey Eagles are kings of the B.C. Hockey League. The Eagles won the Fred Page Cup Sunday night before 3,100 fans at the South Okanagan Events Centre, when Adam Tambellini’s one-timer in double-overtime beat Vees’ goalie Chad Katunar. The goal gave Surrey a 3-2 victory, and a 4-2 series win, dethroning the defending champion Vees. “It feels great,” said Surrey head coach Matt Erhart, who won a Fred Page Cup as a player with the Eagles in 1998. “To get it as a coach is almost more satisfying. It’s a little more work when you’re a coach – when you’re a player, you just show up and play, but we have a great bunch of guys who want to work hard… it makes it easy as a coach.” Surrey’s ascension to the top was not without a few missteps Sunday – namely, two blown leads in the final 10 minutes. With the Eagles protecting a 1-0 lead, Penticton got on the board at the 12-minute mark when John Seimer fed Louie Nanne in the high slot where he beat Eagles’ goaltender Michael Santaguida with a wrister. The deadlock didn’t last long, however. Three minutes later, Eagles’ forward Brady Shaw – a former Vee – restored the visiting team’s lead on the power play when he chipped the puck past Katunar. Surrey had a chance to add an insurance goal late in the period when Penticton’s Bryan Sinz was whistled for a hit-to-thehead penalty with 2:29 to go, but Shaw took a tripping penalty one minute later. And though the Eagles’ penalty killing had been strong all series, they weren’t able to kill off Shaw’s infraction. With 23 seconds left in the game, Surrey blew its second lead when Penticton’s Michael Rebry tipped a point shot past Santaguida to send

Speedster Zane Klym picked off a clearing pass and converted, while Brian Williamson’s 30-yarder skipped off a couple of mole holes and fooled keeper Pete (The Heat) Richter, who recorded several glorious saves. The ruthless Williamson ruled the 2-0 Humpbacks’ midfield and made several dazzling runs through three or four defenders to earn the Rocky Mountain Transport Man of the Match at Marshall Field #3. Ian Murphy just missed on a couple of scoring chances for Bosman (0-2), who played with 10 men and got a bold showing from newcomer Kilmer Hagen at central defence. Hagen took the Old Milwaukee Man of the Match. The revamped Silver Stars also went to 2-0 as they tripped up the Big O Tire Ogopogos 3-1 at Marshall #2. Paul McArdle scored the first goal for the Stars on a sweet header after a cross by Rick Danyluk. John Matejka netted the winner, while Andrew Winston added insurance.

McArdle and midfielder Stephen McCourt, both Bluenose Everton supporters, shared the Libra Video Man of the Match.

Highlight of the match came in the last minute of play when Tyler Johnson had words with the foot of a Freeport player. Both were red carded.

Bridge by Phillip Alder

AN ENCORE FOR THE NO-TRUMP JUMP Colin Hay, a Scottishborn musician who came to prominence as lead vocalist of the Australian band Men at Work, said, “I don’t walk off and come back for encores. I figure I can add four weeks to my life that way.” In a bridge column, though, encores can help to reinforce the point being made by the writer. When the dealer opens one of a suit and two passes follow, if fourth hand overcalls two no-trump, it shows a hand worth a twono-trump opening bid -- as in this deal. North might use Stayman, but chooses to raise to three no-trump. After West leads

the heart queen, how should South plan the play? The difficult part of this deal is thinking of the right play. Declarer starts with six top tricks: two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. There are two more tricks available in clubs, assuming a 3-2 break, but one spade winner is also needed. If South immediately concedes a club trick, West clears hearts and defeats the contract when in with the spade ace. If South leads his spade queen, West wins and establishes his hearts; the contract still fails Instead, because West is marked with the spade ace from his opening bid, South must start with the low spade from his hand. If West goes in with the ace,

declarer has nine winners via three spades, two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. Whereas if West ducks, declarer wins in the dummy and switches to clubs. His nine tricks are one spade, two hearts, two diamonds and four clubs.

Percy BRIGGS

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Percy Charles Sydney Briggs at the age of 85 on April 17, 2013. He was an amazing father, grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend, who will be truly missed. Percy was born in Ledwyn, Manitoba on March 6th, 1928 to English immigrants, Leonard and Ada Briggs. He was predeceased by his parents and all Ă&#x20AC;Ye of his brothers and sisters. He enjoyed a happy childhood and spoke fondly of his school days, milking the cows and trapping weasels with his brothers. He met the loYe of his life, Phyllis Elaine Baker , on a blind date and they were married -anuary 20th, 1951. They had four children: Barry, Tracy, Glenna, and Lisa, nine grandchildren and six greatgrandchildren. Phyllis passed away in 1993. Percy loYed his family dearly and always talked about them with great pride. To his family, Percy was nicknamed ´Mr. )ix-ItÂľ, as there wasn¡t anything he couldn¡t repair. Percy wore many hats. He worked as a teacher, a logger, for Eatons, and eYentually found his passion in telephones. In 1956, Percy moYed his family from :innipeg to 9ernon to work for 2. Tel which later became BC Tel wherein he retired in 1993 after 37 years of serYice. He was a true pioneer in the telephone industry. He was also an actiYe member of the Army and 1aYy. To those close to him, Percy was known as ´Mr. :ertherÂľ as his pockets were always Ă&#x20AC;lled with the golden candies. He also had a great loYe for gardening and loYed to share his Ă owers and produce. Percy could often be found at ´'iner on SixÂľ, his faYorite place to eat. Percy loYed sports. If he wasn¡t playing a game, he was watching one. He was an actiYe curler and baseball player who also enjoyed golĂ&#x20AC;ng and bowling. He found great joy in watching his children and grandchildren play sports. He attended so many soccer, basketball, Yolleyball, curling and lacrosse games that on two separate occasions he was recognized and awarded by the coaches as the most dedicated grandpa.

NDP leader Adrian Dix chose Earth Day to announce his party’s plan to “dissolve” the Pacific Carbon Trust, and put carbon offset payments from government operations back into energy efficiency projects.

space, according to NOAA. Losing Water As the climate changes, glaciers are retreating and contributing to rising sea levels. It turns out that one particular glacier range is contributing a whopping 10 percent of all the meltwater in the world. That honour belongs to the Canadian Arctic, which lost a volume equivalent to 75 percent of Lake Erie between 2004 and 2009.

Developed by The Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC), in partnership with the Society for Promoting Environmental Conversation (SPEC), the free app is a quick and simple tool that helps users find over 1,000 drop-off locations and recycling options for over 70 materials or products across BC. The App, available for both iPhones & Androids, provides users a list of the 10 nearest depots, based on the phones location, as well as a Google map with directions. Both App’s provide the option to call the RCBC Recycling Hotline for additional questions. The App covers materials managed by industry product stewardship or Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) programs in British Columbia, such as batteries, electronics, paints &pharmaceuticals. The App’s are available to download from the

iTunes App Store or the Android Market. Seeking a fun, mobile project that could help the community, App developer Colin Smith volunteered more than 100 hours designing the iPhone App, while volunteer Cameron Gandevia designed the Android App. Both focused their applications on making it easier for users to find recycle depots. The Recycling Council of British Columbia is a multi-sectoral, non-profit, membership driven charitable organization that promotes the principles of zero waste through information services, research and the exchange of ideas. RCBC is Canada’s longest-serving recycling council. Since 1974 it has led B.C.’s progressive policy of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) programs and other initiatives to find innovative ways to eliminate waste and decrease British Columbia’s environmental footprint.

Earth Month …act for the planet! Set goals all year long and make every day Earth Day! FortisBC supports the environment in both operations and services offered By Tom Loski

Earth Day is celebrated annually April 22 with events held across the globe to demonstrate support for protecting the environment. FortisBC recognizes that sound environmental practices make good business sense and that’s why the company is committed to delivering safe, reliable energy in an environmentally responsible way to all of the communities we serve. We look for ways to support the environment in our operations and with services that we provide to our customers. One simple way customers can help the environment is to consider our paperless billing option, a fast and simple way to save paper and ultimately our forests. When customers go paperless, their bill is delivered directly to their email address as a PDF file attached

to the email. The eBill service is a fast, easy and environmentally friendly way for customers to access both their electricity and natural gas bill. Another simple way customers can look at reducing their carbon footprint is through rebates and financial incentives offered as part of our PowerSense and Energy Efficiency and Conservation programs. . Through FortisBC’s PowerSense programs, electricity customers saved an estimated 32 million kilowatt hours of electricity in 2012. The PowerSense programs helps customers conserve energy and get the most out of their energy dollar by providing both financial incentives and advice on energy efficient technologies and practices. In 2012, FortisBC’s natural gas Energy Efficiency and Conservation programs helped residential, commercial and industrial cus-

tomers save more than 360,000 gigajoules of natural gas, enough energy to heat some 4,100 homes in one year. Renewable natural gas is a B.C.-made, carbon neutral energy source. The methane gas used to produce renewable natural gas comes from organic waste found at local landfills and farms. Instead of escaping into the atmosphere as a harmful greenhouse gas, it’s captured, cleaned and added to our pipeline, giving our customers a renewable energy source. For about $5 more per month on their natural gas bill, customers can designate 10 per cent of their natural gas use as renewable. We’ll then inject an equivalent amount into our system.

To date, more than 60 businesses and close to 3,800 residential customers have signed up to be part of the renewable natural gas program. Helping customers conserve energy is one of the most cost effective ways for us to meet future needs. And by making thoughtful energy choices — whether it’s switching to paperless billing, installing energy efficient lighting or upgrading to a high-efficiency natural gas furnace — you’re supporting the environment. Tom Loski is the vice president of customer service at FortisBC.

Act for the Planet this Earth Day: Recycle Old Electronic Toys Earth Month is April. If you and your family haven’t yet decided how to mark this important month, here’s an idea: dig out old or broken electronic toys from the closet or toy basket, and recycle them! The Earth Day Network says that recycling electronic waste is one of the top three Acts of Green that you can do…and it’s easy! British Columbia is the first province in Canada to offer free, safe recycling for all kinds of electronic toys, from talking stuffies to remote control vehicles to gaming devices. ✓ Plush textiles with electronics, including dolls and stuffies ✓ Metal or hard plastic toys with electronics

13-127.3_Spring_Campaign_10.33x7-PRESS.indd 1

✓ Remote control vehicles ✓ Ride on vehicles ✓ Hand-held game devices ✓ Gaming devices with PC/TV ✓ Electronic promotional items, like those sold with meals Every electronic toy is carefully dismantled in the recycling process, and all of its components are sorted and made into a wide variety of new items. Every bit of a toy that can be recycled – from plastics to circuit boards to various metals – is turned into something new and useful. Don’t remove the batteries – they can be recycled too! The Call2Recycle program keeps batteries out of the landfill by reclaiming precious metals and

www.stevensonmechanical.ca

turning them into new batteries and stainless steel products. To find out where you can recycle electronic toys and batteries for free, please call the Recycling Hotline at 1-800-667 4321 or 604 732 9253 or visit the Recyclopedia at www.rcbc.bc.ca. You can also check the Depot Finder at www. cbrsc.ca. CBRSC is the Canadian Brandowners Stewardship Corporation, which represents toy manufacturers and retailers and is working with the Canadian Toy Association to safely recycle electronic toys across BC. And once you’ve recycled those old toys, be sure to register your Act of Green on the Earth Day Network website at act.earthday.org
