Korry Zepik, independent candidate, speaks during a forum at the Schubert Centre Wednesday.

VERNON TOYOTA

Vernon-Monashee candidates had their first opportunity to square off Wednesday night. Close to 100 residents turned out to hear Conservative Scott Anderson, Liberal Eric Foster, NDP’s Mark Olsen and independent Korry Zepik at the Schubert Centre. Green candidate Rebecca Helps did not attend. The event, put on by the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board and Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce, featured 13 questions. The top issues were: economy, taxes, debt, local government reform, skills training and transportation. With the growing shortage of skilled workers, candidates spoke to their goals to train students. “Eighty per cent of future jobs are going to require some form of post secondary education, so we need that now,” said Olsen, noting the NDP’s proposed $100 million needs-based grant. The other candidates agreed that

more training needs to be done at the high school level. “One of the shortfalls we have in our system is we don’t have a lot of those opportunities for high school students,” said Foster, who worked in the education system for 15 years, at which time he saw the benefits of students being trained in forestry and ready to enter the workforce upon graduation. Zepik said more needs to be done to keep residents from leaving B.C. to go to higher-paying jobs in Alberta. “People leaving university are making $4 less an hour than we did in 1976, yet their debt is exponentially greater,” said Zepik, a 55-year-old Vernon resident and single father. Anderson agreed with Zepik. “This is an investment into our future,” said Anderson, noting the Conservative’s plan to look at expansion of apprenticeships. Affordable housing was another topic particularly with property transfer taxes (it’s currently one per cent on the first $200,000 of home purchases

and two per cent on the remainder). Anderson says the carbon tax is ineffective and unfair and the Conservatives will work towards eliminating the property transfer tax. “We can make it easier for people to afford a house and take away onerous taxes.” Zepik favours using a carbon tax. But Foster points out that property transfer taxes are a large part of the revenue stream, so he suggests raising the threshold in an incremental way. Olsen shared Foster’s thoughts: “This is a rarity, on some points I’m actually agreeing with Mr. Foster.” The link between economic prosperity and transportation was another topic. Olsen and Zepik agreed that more reliance on rail is needed as an affordable and environmentally favourable option to transport goods. While Anderson and Foster said resources need to be focused on transportation corridors in the Interior and north.

Clark forecasts Liberal win in Vernon richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Despite the polls showing possible defeat, Christy Clark says the Liberals are upbeat and prepared to maintain the reins of government after May 14. The premier and Liberal leader made a brief stop in Vernon Wednesday as part of her provincewide election campaign. “Every day I’m working hard to make people understand the contrasts (between the Liberals and the NDP),” she said. “The NDP have already promised $2.8 billion in spending in the past week.” It’s been suggested that Vernon-Monashee could be a tight race as incumbent MLA Eric Foster only received 1,300 votes more than NDP challenger Mark Olsen in the 2009 election. However, Clark not only insists Foster will be re-elected, but the margin of voters will be far greater. “The difference between last time and this time is the record accomplished in that time,” she said, referring to the Polson tower at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and the current development of new beds. While there have been some concerns within the community that the net 14 new beds will not address overcrowding and there are no immediate plans for additional operating rooms, Clark says the Liberals take health care seriously. “We’re building what we were told the community needs,” she said. “As the community grows, we will continue to invest. And how we will do that is by allowing the economy to grow. The NDP plan is out of control spending and increasing taxes.” Clark’s stop in Vernon saw her attend the seniors’ birthday bash at the Schubert Centre. Festivities were slightly delayed as her campaign bus didn’t arrive when originally expected.

“I know it’s never good to be late on a birthday,” said Clark as she climbed on to the stage and addressed the crowd. Besides shaking hands and providing hugs to those at the event, Clark helped cut a giant birthday cake and she expressed surprise as a series of people called out their ages in the 90s. “I’m moving to the Okanagan,” she joked. But Clark also took time to promote the Liberals’ record on health care and seniors’ programs.

“We have a duty and responsibility to look after and love those who looked after and loved us,” she said. Clark also rallied support for Foster, who she says has been an active representative in Victoria. “People in this community know Eric and how hard he’s worked,” she said, adding that she isn’t concerned that questions about renovations at Foster’s office will negatively impact the party’s chances here. Foster has been cleared of any potential

conflict of interest for leasing office space from the family of his executive assistant. Allegations against Foster were largely raised by the B.C. Conservatives, and Clark dismissed Conservative supporters who waved placards as her campaign bus arrived in Vernon. “I’m glad they came to say hi. But the contest is between Eric and the NDP,” she said. “The question is between who will grow the economy and who will grow government?”

Police investigating assault at Enderby party RogeR knox Morning Star Staff

RCMP are investigating a disturbing assault at an Enderby bush party Saturday. The incident is said to have occurred at a gravel pit on Watershed Road east of Enderby, and allegedly involved students from A.L. Fortune Secondary. “Allegations are that a 16-year-old boy was physically assaulted, then he was urinated on as well during this ordeal,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “A number of other

students were in close proximity while the alleged assault took place and the police are speaking to them.” Two suspects, aged 17 and 18 and both male, were arrested for assault. They were released on a promise to appear in court and an undertaking at a later date. Neither suspect attends A.L. Fortune. Principal Gene Doray said in talking with students, those who attended the party would not call the incident a case of bullying. “This is an assault,” said Doray.

“The information we have doesn’t suggest any kind of a history. Counselling services have been offered and we are in contact with the (victim’s) family, making sure they know of the resources we can provide and also the resources that the community has. They are working to come up with their own decision there on how to proceed. We have certainly offered our help.” The RCMP is continuing its investigation and Fortune’s school liaison officer is also involved with school officials and students.

Hoffman retiring from Vernon School District Morning Star Staff

Randy Hoffman has his golf clubs ready to go as he looks towards retirement. The longtime secretary-treasurer of the Vernon School District steps down after 11 years. “While the role of secretary-treasurer is critically important at all times, it is even more so in times of fiscal restraint,” said board chairman Bill Turanski, who made the official announcement at Tuesday’s district board meeting. Hoffman joined the district management

administration, building projects and support staff labour relations in the district. “To Mr. Hoffman, we offer our sincere gratitude for his outstanding leadership during the last 11 years and offer

our very best wishes to he and his wife, Cindy, as he begins his welldeserved retirement,” said Turanski. Lewis Hill replaces Hoffman Aug. 1. Hill was senior financial advisor for Cascade Aerospace as well as chief financial officer for a private educational institute in Alberta. Most recently, he has held the position of secretary-treasurer in both the Clearview Public School Division and the Alberta School Boards’ Association. “Mr. Hill understands the need to make difficult decisions nec-

essary in today’s times to ensure the survival and health of the organization as well as, most

important, maintaining the district focus on the continued success of both current and future

students,” said Turanski. “We look forward to working with him on our management team.”

Residents suggest that the city’s preferred site, which is a lake access, could impact property values, be visually distracting and maintenance trucks will be disruptive. They also say there could be noise and odour issues and established trees could be injured by construction. Patmore says he hasn’t been impressed with discussions between himself and city staff. “They literally kept us out of the loop. They quit communicating with us,” he said. “I was told by a city representative that it was going in there come hell or high water.” A similar message also comes from others on Beachcomber Bay Road. “There has been a

Sri Anandpur Sahib is in the Punjab region and much of its economic focus is agriculture. “The residents of Sri Anandpur Sahib are very happy to extend co-operation in establishing mutual brotherhood and world peace,” said G.K. Singh, deputy commissioner of Roopnagar in Punjab, India. The City of Vernon will send a welcome letter and gift to Sri Anandpur Sahib to recognize the partnership. Vernon will also update its signage, print material and website to reflect its Indian Mary-Jo O’Keefe counterpart. Vernon’s other sister cities are Modesto, California; Tome, Japan; Frankenburg, Austria; Saint-Lambert, Quebec and Tavullia, Italy. A sign outside of city hall provides distances to each community. Vernon’s sister cities committee is run by volunteers and the purpose is to exchange information and cultural experiences. Vernon has previously received visitors from some sister cities, and there have been occasional visits of local residents to those communities. Fundraising assists with any exchanges, and those who go on trips cover their own expenses.

Morning Star earns recognition roger kNox Morning Star Staff

The Morning Star is among the top three community newspapers in the highest circulation category in the province. The Black Press paper beat out nine others to finish third in the B.C. Lottery Corporation Newspaper Excellence Award for its circulation category (more than 30,000) at Saturday’s 2012 B.C. Yukon Community Newspaper Association’s Ma Murray Awards in Richmond. General excellence takes into account all aspects of the newspaper, from writing and photography to ad design, classified ads, headlines and layout. “A well-balanced paper from the front page to the back,” wrote the judge about The Morning Star. “Local features and sports

“A well-balanced paper from the front to the back.” — BCYCNA judge

stand out as well as great advertising content and design. Strong design and attention to detail. “Solid community news reporting and good editing add up to a newspaper to be proud of.” The Morning Star finished with 76 total points, nearly two full points ahead of Coquitlam Now, which placed fourth. Surrey/North Delta Leader, another Black Press paper, finished first with 77.68 points. Surrey Now finished second with 76.66 points. The judge awarded The Morning Star 12 points out of 15 for its front page, and scored

well in several other categories. The Morning Star had the most points (eight out of 10) for its editorial and opinion page, for advertising content and design (7.67 out of 10) and for arts and entertainment (4.33 out of five). The paper tied for first in sports (4.33 out of five) with fellow Black Press papers Kelowna Capital News and Abbotsford News, and tied for second in community news with 7.67 out of 10 (Burnaby Now was first with eight out of 10). “It’s an honour to finish in the top three against some excellent competition,” said Morning Star managing

editor Glenn Mitchell, who was in Richmond along with publisher Ian Jensen to accept the award. “Everybody at The Morning Star works hard to put out a quality paper every issue, and we’re extremely proud of the work we do. “To be recognized provincially is quite a feat.” Former Morning Star photographer José Larochelle took second place in the sports photo category (for papers with a circulation of more than 25,000) for his photo of a freestyle skier doing a flip during a competition at Silver Star Mountain Resort. “The subject is sharp, the background is well-set and adds to the image, not interfering with it, and the action speaks volumes,” wrote the judge about

Larochelle’s entry. “Well done.” Murray Mitchell of the Kamloops Daily News – younger brother of Glenn and Morning Star sports editor Kevin Mitchell – took first place in the category.

Some parents aren’t getting the message when it comes to parking at a Vernon school. There have been ongoing problems with parents waiting for their children in the bus zone or in front of driveways on 21st Avenue since Vernon Secondary School relocated to another site on the property. “It’s a little frustrating,” said Clint Kanester, the City of Vernon’s bylaw enforcement manager. “The school has been directing parents to use the student parking lot or 18th Street but there’s been a conflict with buses on 21st Avenue, which is fairly narrow.” Bus drivers have experienced rude behaviour after asking parents to move, as have residents who have been unable to get in or our of their driveways. The city got involved after receiving a request from

the school and residents. “Our staff spent a week or two asking people not to sit there and then they started to write tickets,” said Kanester. However, enforcement was only effective when a bylaw officer was present and parking issues would resurface once they left. As a result, new signs have been posted warning motorists that witnessed stopping will result in a ticket being issued through the mail. VSS is also delivering notices to parents advising them of acceptable locations for parking. Kanester says the goal is to alleviate safety concerns and to ensure the efficient flow of buses. “If a kid has to walk a couple of feet (to their parent’s car) so the bus can pick up 20 or 30 students, that makes sense,” he said.

Body injuries

f I was a professional athlete, I would be diagnosed the same as Vancouver Canucks goalie Cory Schneider. I have a body injury. In my case, I have no problems about being open and honest with my ailments. My shoulders hurt. My hamstrings hurt. My back hurts. My left hip hurts. The fourth toe on my right foot always feels like it’s asleep. Sometimes even what hair I have left on the top of my head hurts. But what’s ailing Schneider is, of course, a mystery. It was announced Wednesday by head coach Alain Vigneault that Schneider, the Canucks Roger Knox No. 1 goalie, suffered an injury in a win Monday over arch-nemesis Chicago, and would not start Thursday at home against Anaheim. All Vigneault would say is that Schneider had a body injury and is listed as “day-to-day.” Canucks beat reporters, sharp people that they are, pressed Vigneault. “Is it upper body or lower body?” Vigneault bit his upper lip before finally cracking into laughter. “Body,” he said. “That’s all you’re going to get.” Vigneault was not going to diagnose what was actually wrong with Schneider (nor would his teammates divulge what happened Monday) because this is the so-called unwritten code in hockey. God forbid you should tell a reporter or the fans that pay the exorbitant ticket prices the exact extent of an injury. Such news, if leaked, could apparently give the next opponent an incredible advantage. If memory serves, this upper- and lowerbody nonsense started with an injury to some key player during the Stanley Cup playoffs. It has since carried over into training camp and

regular season injury woes. In my previous life as a sports broadcaster and sports writer, nothing bothered me more than covering hockey teams and failing to get significant answers to injury questions. A guy would be helped off the ice after suffering an apparent injury to, say, his leg. The player needs two teammates to help him off the ice and everybody in the building can see the player can’t put pressure on the leg. “So, coach, about Smith’s leg injury. What can you tell me?” I would ask. “It’s a lower body injury,” the coach would reply. “Could you be more specific?” “No.” “Is it broken? Is it the knee? Ligament damage? Severe sprain?” “It’s a lower-body injury, I’m not a doctor,” the coach would reply. Naturally, I’d get phone calls at work from fans asking if I knew the inside skinny on Smith’s leg injury. “All the coach would say is it’s a lower-body injury.” Hockey is the only sport that this happens. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III left an NFL playoff game against Seattle because of a knee injury, not a lower body problem. Wednesday night, Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lim ran into a Oklahoma City Thunder forward and had to leave his NBA playoff game with a bruised chest muscle, not an upper-body injury. Baseball pitchers, for goodness sake, are taken out of games because of blisters on their fingers, and that’s what reporters get told. It would, I suppose, be cool if we could use the upper-lower-body issue in our everyday lives. “Uh, sorry, Glenn, I can’t come in today and finish the column. I have an upper-body injury.” “Upper-body? What is it?” “I don’t know. I’m not a doctor.”

It’s definitely an acquired taste, to sit and listen to election candidates square off in debate. It’s usually a lot of party bashing, and boasting for their own, but the most recent forums in Vernon have proven to be an exception. Despite the odd under-handed remark, all of the candidates were well-behaved. It’s refreshing to see everyone playing so nicely. While many would still rather not sit through any form of political debate, it is the first step in any democratic process. The only way to be informed is get out there and hear the views of each of the candidates. It’s not enough to simply pick orange or blue because you’re sick of red, or keep red as the better of all three evils. Read the newspapers, listen to the radio talk shows, search out party platforms and attend the forums - if you can. Lucky for Vernon-Monashee voters, there are plenty of opportunities to hear the candidates. Back-to-back forums took place Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Then there are two more opportunities next week: Monday at the Performing Arts Centre at 7 p.m. and Wednesday at Lumby’s White Valley Community Centre at 6 p.m. Over in the Shuswap riding there are also two forums next week: Tuesday at the Enderby Seniors Complex at 7 p.m. and Wednesday in Armstrong at the Centennial Theatre at 7. But even if you get out to a forum or follow it up in the newspaper, none of it matters if you don’t get out and vote. The provincial election is May 14, with advance voting May 8 to 11. It’s hoped that voter turnout won’t be as dismal as it was at the recent referendum.

pleASe voTe A great letter from Allan Hopper in a recent Morning Star about voter apathy. I am a retired senior. There is only one election (municipal) that I didn't vote since I was able. I am happy I live in a country where I can vote. Millions of people around the world don't have the right to vote. The one time that I didn't vote, more than 40 years ago, was because I didn't feel like it. That was not a good reason. I think the voter turnout in Canada should never be under 90 per cent. Do we want someone else to decide what kind of government we have and how much we are taxed? If we lost our rights in this country, would those of you that don't vote complain. I don't think you would have a right to complain. Next month is the provincial election. As the saying goes: vote as you please but please vote.

Clearing the air on carbon credits

he recent release by the B.C. auditor general has led to a vigorous debate on the future of carbon neutral government. As a seller of carbon credits to the Pacific Carbon Trust, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) looks forward to any clarity that may result in the B.C. carbon market. However, a recent editorial in this newspaper (“Greenhouse gas leaks from Pacific Carbon Trust” by Tom Fletcher), perpetuates factual errors that fail to inform any debate. Acquisition of a conservation project is the beginning of our work, not the end. When NCC purchased Darkwoods in 2008, our expensive, long-term commitment to the conservation lands began. From the outset, revenue from carbon sales was seen as critical to supporting this stewardship effort. Without the possibility of carbon sales NCC could not have undertaken a project of the size and scope of Darkwoods. Yet, those facts are conveniently overlooked by Mr. Fletcher. Further, he fails to understand the baseline used to calculate stored carbon at Darkwoods. Independent evaluations were not based on the possibility of NCC clearcutting the property, but rather on what would have happened had NCC not acquired Darkwoods. The alternative to NCC ownership was acquisition by a market-based buyer. The land would

R

have been intensively logged and subdivided. The difference between that scenario and the current conserved property forms the basis for carbon valuation. Mr. Fletcher asks, rhetorically if NCC would have logged Darkwoods. “Legally, it could not,” he writes. On the contrary, NCC does log the Darkwoods site. We operate a small, sustainable harvest based on conservation values that supports the property and the community. In fact, overall,

Junction Literacy Centre, volunteers are indispensable. The time, talents and caring that our volunteers share with others each week have a lasting impact in our community. We know that more than 350 elementary school children are reading with more confidence this year thanks to the small army of trained volunteers in our One to One Children’s Literacy and Skills Boost programs. As well, in our seniors computer support program, more than 40 seniors have met with encouraging and patient volunteers who help them deal with their computer questions and fears. They tell us that their tutors demystify the computer to help them engage in this age of technology. At the literacy centre, we would be lost without the energetic volunteers who manage our Give and Take bookshelves as well as those who help with various projects and fundraisers. Our volunteers often tell us that the personal benefits they gain by volunteering outweigh what they give. We agree that everyone wins,

but it all begins with one person offering to help another. Our sincere thanks to all volunteers for the difference you make, this week and every week of the year. Debbie Schiller, Amy Doylend, lana Schuster, lynda Kerr, Kathy wylie Junction literacy Centre SpeNDiNg oN vAlue I am writing this letter without knowing the results of the sports field referendum only because I have said my piece on this subject. But I would like the municipality to give opposing viewpoints equal amount of money for the anti vote as they spend and to have one or two persons on the panel. The true definition of a democracy. The reason for this letter is very concerning. I drove by and noticed that East Side Mario's is closed and gone. I suppose this is a cost of 30-plus jobs. Sports Mart closed (15 to 20 jobs). SQM telemarketing saw 40 jobs lost to the U.S. and there are 30-plus jobs lost at the recycleing centre. Anywhere from 120 to 150 jobs lost that we cannot afford to lose.

our ownership of Darkwoods has resulted in a $13 million economic benefit to the community, to date. The Darkwoods Forest carbon project was the first of its kind undertaken in Canada. The project is certified under the verified carbon standard, a standard that ensures a carbon project follows internationally-recognized protocols and has tangible environmental benefits. The Nature Conservancy of Canada spent three years developing the project, and exercised due diligence at every step while working with various industry experts. The project also fulfilled all provincial regulations and met all standards for carbon offsets. More importantly, Darkwoods is a world-class conservation project. Without revenue from forest carbon, the longterm protection of this vital 55,000 hectare property and the fate of animals and plants that find a haven there would be in jeopardy. The proceeds from the carbon sales went back into the long-term stewardship of Darkwoods — for the sake of nature and the people of B.C.. Darkwoods ensures in perpetuity, British Columbians will see the magnificent forest for the trees. Tom Swann, Associate Regional vice-president, B.C. The Nature Conservancy of Canada

This is just in past few months so just think what is in store for the remainder of the year I look around the downtown and business areas, and all I see are for rent, lease or sale signs on buildings or land. The city council and RDNO must start doing something about this and they can start by erecting a state-ofart recycling plant. This can be built just below the present location and this will allow for direct access from the highway without having to go up the hill and have them return and the present area. This will reduce congestion at the scale area. This area with some work can be levelled and a proper plant built and get recycling from other areas brought in. This could increase the number of jobs greatly and give the people who depend on this money a steady and good place to work. It could also recycle the same products as the other recycle depots. I would rather have my tax money spent on something of value like this that will assist all of us rather than beautify.

Let us be proactive not reactive as the present council and board seem to be. garry Haas

It has not been built yet, but recently moved a step closer to it existence after being designated a mountain resort municipality. That designation has many other municipalities upset due to the fact that a town has been created without residents and without an elected council. “Its not very democratic and it’s disconcerting that a municipality would go this route,” said Coldstream Coun. Maria Besso Maria Besso. The neighbouring district of Invermere is asking every local government of B.C. to express its concern and send its support for the UBCM to get involved in a legal proceeding. Along with threatening democratic principles and local government credibility, Invermere Mayor Gerry Taft doesn’t see how the municipality can be sustainable. “It also seems unsustainable to have municipalities exist for an undetermined length of time with no tax base being completely reliant on provincial government grants to fund their operations,” said Taft in a letter.

Coldstream handing out free trees Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

Coldstream residents once again have an opportunity to plant a greener future. The district will be giving away seedlings at the municipal office Sunday. “We will be starting at 9 a.m. and going until the trees run out,” said Mayor Jim Garlick. Approximately 1,500 seedlings, of native varieties such as cedar, fir and pine, will be given out along with some planting suggestions. “We will provide information on how to plant them and where to plant them,” said Garlick, noting that cedars should be planted along creeks. The seedlings have been provided by Michael Carlson, emeritus scientist with the Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

“We will provide information on how to plant and where.” — Jim Garlick

Carlson has generously donated seedlings for a number of years. “I get a lot of the same people back, they come every year and talk about the trees they got seven years ago,” said Garlick. Pooches seek increased park use Dog owners are demanding increased access into Creekside Park. Nearly 100 people signed a petition to expand the area dogs are allowed in the park, which is being forwarded to the Regional District of North Okanagan. The petition hopes to have the bylaws amended so dog own-

ers can walk their pets on the road that runs south of Coldstream Creek in order to access public washrooms and access the dog park on foot from the subdivision of houses south of the park. “We understand and agree with enforcing the no dog bylaw on playing fields and playground areas, but we feel that dog owners represent a growing part of the demographic and as long as they pick up after their animals and keep them under control they should have a right to access through the park,” reads the petition. Dogs are currently only allowed

on the north portion of the park, between Kalamalka Road and the creek. Free Transit Local efforts to reduce air pollution are being made to give residents a free pass to ride the bus.

In celebration of Clean Air Day, free transit is in the works for June 5. “June 5th is national Clean Air Day and as in the past, we are looking to provide free transit,” said Laura Frank, sustainability co-ordinator and planning with the Regional District of North Okanagan. RDNO and the City of Vernon are seeking approval from area councils, which Coldstream approved Monday.

DISTRICT OF COLDSTREAM FREE TREE SEEDLIngS FOR COLDSTREAM RESIDEnTS When: Sunday, April 28 Time: 9:00 a.m. to noon, or until seedlings run out Where: Coldstream Municipal Hall 9901 Kalamalka Road Available on a first-come basis. The trees are provided by local nurseries through the Ministry of Forests.

Excavation work begins Monday at 6190 Okanagan Landing Rd. and will continue until about May 15. There will be flaggers in that area to ensure foot traffic, cyclist and motorist safety. Work is planned for daytime only.

Skilled spellers sought for bee Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

The buzz is starting to stir for an event that will test the spelling skills of local businesses and individuals. The Junction Literacy Centre’s sixth annual Adult Spelling Bee Challenge gets underway May 8, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the Vernon Lodge.

The event, which supports various literacy and youth programs at the centre, has several returning teams and is hoping to fill even more tables. “It’s important to support literacy in our community,” said Robert Foord, president of Kal Tire, presenting sponsor and just one of the retuning

teams. “Spell check aside, these days they are critical skills to have from a professional standpoint.” Along with supporting the Junction Literacy Centre and Teen Junction Youth Centre, the annual spelling bee offers a team-building morning centred around fun. Unlike traditional spelling bees where individuals brave the stage, groups work together to correctly spell words, which are presented in rounds. “People who love to spell and want to support the work we do should call us,” said Debbie Schiller, Junction executive

director. “Whether it’s a team, a few friends, or an individual, there’s room for everyone, and a hot breakfast. “We’ve been hovering between 15 and 18 tables every year and this year we are really hoping for 20,” said Schiller. Last year’s spelling bee raised $20,000 with the Okanagan College Egg Heads claiming the prized trophy. But the competition isn’t necessarily for the overall championship, there are also some inter-table competitions which Schiller would like to see more of. “The two Rotary clubs are at it again,” she said, also noting the ongoing battle between the student team and school administrators. Teams of eight ($1,000) can include, but are not limited to book clubs, running clubs, retirees, service clubs and businesses. Individuals ($125) can also take part and will be joined with tables of like-minded individuals. Sponsors needed are also needed to help an enthusiastic student who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate. To register call 250275-3117 or admin@ ju n c t i on l it e r a c y. c a . Costumes are optional.

Kids fortify Science Centre Morning Star Staff

Unstructured, creative play is vital to childhood development, and the physical and mental health of the young at heart. Build a strong foundation for play by fortifying the Okanagan Science Centre Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. “Donations of sheets, blankets and clothes pins have piled in for visitors to help turn the halls and galleries into a gigantic play fort,” said Sandi Dixon, executive director. “All screens and monitors will be powered down but bubbles, blocks, construction materials, critters, games, demos and live programs will be running all day to kick off Unplug and Play Week.” This a free event at the Okanagan Science Centre, sponsored by the North Okanagan Optimist Club.

Seniors taught safer driving Morning Star Staff

Safe driving is important for everyone. There’s no substitute for the experience gained by older drivers. But as people age, experience can’t always make up for the physical changes age brings. By learning about the most common aging issues facing older drivers, it is much easier to address them. Join Rural Programs Coordinator Warren Smith from the City of Vernon RCMP Safe Communities Unit in partnership with BCAA and learn more about the aspects of driving while in your senior years through a two-hour workshop presented Monday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the White Valley Parks and Recreation Centre in Lumby. “The workshop itself covers topics such as staying safe on the road, planning to stop driving, staying mobile and the DriveAble program,” said Smith. Part of the workshop is a self assessment that is done by the participant. This information is confidential and can be used as a tool by the participant to evaluate their driving status. If you would like to more information or you would like to register for this program please contact the Safe Communities Unit at 250-550-7843.

Calling someone a dirt bag might normally result in hard feelings but Beth Marks assures people that, in this case, it’s a great compliment. Marks’ Dirt Bag campaign involves selling bags of soil with donations going towards purchasing property for Habitat for Humanity. “We’re raising money for a lot that will set affordable housing into perpetual motion,” said Marks. “The focus of the program is on assisting the working poor to obtain housing. This will benefit the whole community.” When businesses receive a bag of dirt, Marks, who is a realtor, will interview them for Sutton Scoop, a YouTube channel produced by Sutton Group - Lakefront Realty. Marks is part of a committee hoping to raise $300,000 for a lot that would be suitable for a multi-unit dwelling. “The whole premise of Habitat for Humanity is a hand up not a hand out,” said Marks. “It gives people without large incomes the chance to put in sweat equity — usually 500 hours — to help build their home or the next home.” Businesses to receive the Dirt Bag honour include Vernon Moving and Storage, AJ Pets, Greyhound and Fermco.

Hails on standby for Clippers

Rocks host Raiders

Kevin Mitchell Sports Editor

Morning Star Staff

The Armstrong Shamrocks looked good in their pre-season Ice Breaker tourney, but now it’s time to see how they fare in a live situation. The Rocks open the Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League against the defending champion Kelowna Raiders tonight (7:30) at Nor-Val Sports Centre. “It was the Raiders that eliminated the Rocks in the finals last season, so it will be an opportunity for the home team to get some redemption,” said Irish GM-netminder Chad Pieper. The Shamrocks will honour goalie Owen Siddall, who died of a heart attack last Thanksgiving, in a pregame ceremony. New recruits include defenders Blake Fredrickson and Tyson Van Meter, former Vernon Tiger forward Brennan Plante and Junior Shamrock grad Kyle Versteeg.

Michael Hails will be in the stands for the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup in Nanaimo. His goalie equipment will be near by, just in case the Nanaimo Clippers run into an injury or illness during the inaugural Junior A hockey tournament. After backstopping the Comox Glacier Kings to the Vancouver Island Junior League finals, where they lost to the Victoria Cougars, Hails was dazzling as the Kings went winless in the Cyclone Taylor provincial championships in Comox. The 18-year-old Vernon minor hockey product has practised with the Clippers numerous times this season, and will be on their roster for the 10-day westerns. Clipper captain Trevor Fitzgerald said Hails has held his own in workouts. “He looked pretty good, he looked pretty confident,” said Fitzgerald, also of Vernon. “He fits in well and looked like he’s capable of playing at the Junior A level.” Moving up a notch is on Hails’ bucket list after being traded to Comox by the Creston Valley Thundercats of the KIJHL last fall. “I’m looking to play Junior A next year, that’s the goal,” said Hails. “Anywhere.” He went 8-4 in the Glacier Kings’ playoff run after going 7-6 in the regular season. Comox finished second in their division, at 22-22-3, behind the Nanaimo Buccaneers. “The difference between shooters in the two leagues is that in the BCHL, almost everyone can pick a corner or put the puck where they want it to go, and in a hurry. In Junior B, you get a handful of players on each team that can do that, but most put their head down and hope for the best.” Hails, 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, suffered with a virus and missed two games during the final Island series against Victoria. He was worthy of first star in most league and Cyclone Taylor Cup games. “I had more than 150 shots in the Cyclone Cup and it was a great experience,” said Hails. “It was a

You want to prove yourself on the big stage, especially since I was traded to Comox. The crowd and hype made it all more exciting.” In February, the Clippers’ goalie coach, Jeff Battah, got Hails to plant his feet more and relax, two things he quickly put into play. “I think I had a great season. Moving to a new place is always challenging but the guys were nice to me and made me feel welcome, and I was able to help the team.” Hails will spend the summer working mainly on his leg strength. He’s a Carey Price fan who also enjoys playing soccer and tennis. The Western Canada Cup starts with opening ceremonies tonight at Frank Crane Arena, followed by a Chad Brownlee (former Vernon Viper) concert at the adjacent Beban Park Social Centre

The first game sees the Surrey Eagles take on Brooks Bandits Saturday at 2 p.m. The Clippers open against the Yorkton Terriers of Saskatchewan Saturday at 7 p.m “We have done some pre-scouting and we do have an idea of what and who we’re playing against,” said Nanaimo head coach Mike Vandekamp, formerly with the Vipers. “But hockey’s hockey. I don’t think there’s massive adjustments that you go out and make depending on who you’re playing.” Vandekamp also told Black Press Sports: “I think it will be more intense than you think. You don’t need past-history rivalries to create intensity. What this intensity will be built on is the pot of gold that’s on the end of the rainbow – we’ve got a chance to go to a national tournament here. That in itself will create the competitiveness necessary to make for a good hockey game.”

Controls shut down Eagle Homes 3-1 to remain unbeaten Turn-Key Controls remained undefeated in the young North Okanagan Soccer League season with a 3-1 win over Salmon Arm’s Eagle Homes Nation of Domination Wednesday night on Marshall Field #1. Turn-Key, now 2-0, opened the scoring in the 21st minute when Nolan’s Pharmasave Man of the Match Andrew Pool chipped over the keeper from 20 yards out off a brilliantly headed through ball by Preston Tucker. Pool found himself alone behind the opposition

defence shortly after to bring the score to 2-0 at halftime. The second half saw two tired teams, with neither side able to rely on many subs. With Pool working a fundraiser barbecue on the sidelines for an upcoming trip to Ecuador, Nathan Tucker put the game out of reach, converting a pass from Thomas Pool. Eagle Homes was denied on a penalty shot by goaltender Jeremy Kler, who made a spectacular diving stop to earn Total Restoration Save of the Match. Salmon Arm ruined Kler’s

clean sheet when a forward beat the offside trap and converted on a breakaway. Monashee Surveying and Riot FC ran to a 1-1 draw on Marshall #5. Coming off an opening-week loss, Monashee scored early, with Matt McKeown capping a nice passing play. Brett Korberg and McKeown generated other chances, but couldn’t find the finish. Riot FC equalized on a solid breakout shortly before half. Monashee controlled most of the second half, with strong play by Dave Henry and

Sundancers reach podium Morning Star Staff

Sundance Taekwon-Do members tested their skill in a field of more than 280 athletes at the International Taekwon-do Federation Western Canadian Championships at the University of Regina. The Vernon-based martial arts school sent eight athletes who earned 13 medals. “All of the members worked extremely hard in their preparations to bring in three gold, six silver and four bronze,” said head instructor David White. In black belt competition, Brad Cotey recorded gold in patterns and silver in heavyweight sparring, while Abbie Bennett grabbed silver in the junior girls second degree patterns and bronze in light heavyweight sparring. Junior male Brett Bell earn silver in first degree patterns and silver in the junior boys light heavyweight sparring. Kelly Kinniburgh took bronze in women’s third degree patterns and gold in women’s black belt light heavyweight sparring.

Let us help you achieve this White earned silver in the men’s fourth degree patterns. “This was a great showing by some of our most dedicated mem-

bers,” said White. “We couldn’t be prouder as a school and as a community.” Sundance plans to send six members to nationals, May 17-18, in Quebec City. All of the black belt competitors will be vying for a spot on the national team that will compete at worlds this fall in Benidorm, Spain.

Bob Frederickson stepped it up by bringing home two bronze medals in the men’s green belt kata and kumite (sparring). Ruy Romano and Paul Garneau gave it their best, but did not medal in a competitive men’s purple belt division. Neave Allen’s impressive performance earned her gold in kata and silver in kumite in the 11-12-year-old girls blue belt division. Nathan Allen captured double-silver in the boy’s 12-14 brown

and black belt class. He won four straight fights only to lose to a much larger opponent in the kumite final, adding to his silver in kata. Erik L’ecluse struck silver in the 11-14 boys kata division,while karate newcomer Emily L’ecluse gained some insight as she competed in the 11-13 girls whiteto-orange belt group. Said Vernon club coach Mike Ciurka: “She didn’t bring a medal back, but she gained some great experience and had fun at the same time.” The team of Sidney Bos, Nathan and Neave Allen collected bronze in the Junior team kata.

Capitals ink Volpatti Morning Star Staff

Former Vernon Viper Aaron Volpatti will be living in the U.S. capital for the foreseeable future. The NHL Capitals re-signed the scrappy left winger to a two-year contract this week.

SportS BriefS Williamson works magic in U16 Cup

Lumby’s Jagger Williamson was a point-pergame player in helping Team Canucks earn silver at the B.C. Under 16 Hockey Cup last weekend in Salmon Arm. The 5-foot-7, 150-pound forward recorded a goal and an assist as the Canucks fell 4-3 in a shootout to Team Flyers in the championship game. Williamson, who plays Bantam Tier 1 with the Vernon Source For Sports Renegades, scored at the 10-minute mark of the final frame. He then set up Caleb Fantillo (Coquitlam) for the 3-3 goal. The Canucks went 2-1 in preliminary play, with Williamson netting a goal and assist in their 4-2 doubling of the Bruins. His four points earned him a share of second overall in Cup scoring. Notable players that have competed in the event include Brent Seabrook (Chicago Blackhawks), Brandon McMillan (Anaheim Ducks) and Brett Connolly (Tampa Bay Lightning). The next stage in the selection process for Team B.C. will be the U16 camp, July 10-14, in Nanaimo.

Skate of Mind in sync

Skate of Mind enjoyed a stellar season on the synchronized skating circuit. The Vernon-based squad struck silver at provincials in Surrey, in mid-January, and followed that up with a respectable sixth-place showing a nationals, in Kamloops, in early April. “This energetic, active group of women enjoy skating together and are committed to a mutual goal of having fun while supporting everyone’s personal efforts that make this team effort a truly great experience,” said Heather Stranks, who coaches the team out of the Vernon Figure Skating Club. Skate of Mind, sponsored by Metal Structure Concepts of Kelowna, performed to a spicy burlesque number this year. The group features a fun-loving mix of students, career women, wives, mothers and grandmothers. Vernon members include Ashley Wolfe, Kristy Anderson, Danielle Robert, Cora-Lee Baker, Katie Yavis, January Cucheran and Britney Powell, along with Armstrong’s Jen Phelan, Peachland’s Kayla Nixon and Kelowna skaters Vanessa Daley, Jae Polemar, Tracy Wright, Robin Nettleton and Krista Mallory. Anyone interested in getting back on the ice for some exercise and good times should contact the Vernon Figure Skating Club by calling 250-2606632, or e-mailing skatingvfsc@gmail.com

Hughes hot at the plate

Sydnee Hughes went 4-for-4 with a triple as the Vernon Army & Navy grounded Kelowna 21-11 in Bantam girls fastball action Wednesday at Grahame Park. Vernon got other 4-for-4 outings from Ali Roine, Shayle Routley and Amy Parsons, while Bailey Williamson and Alabama Chevrier each with 3-for-4. Chevrier took over pitching duties from Sarah Jones in the third innning to pick up the win. In Squirt division play Wednesday at Grahame, the Vernon Caufields Engraving Panthers fell 15-9 to Kelowna. Alyssa LeMaitre, Sierra Lochhead and Niomie Farrquist each had a hit, pitcher Kass Bradley got a strikeout in the third inning and Kaylee Crandlemire scored a pair of runs.

Anaheim Ducks’ head coach Bruce Boudreau has resorted to some cheeky tactics in his attempt to rest up 42-year-old winger Teemu Selanne as the Ducks prepare for the Stanley Cup playoffs. Said Selanne: “He hid my skates a couple times, or he tried to.”

2013 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN

In Masters Division play Tuesday night, the Longhorn Impact brushed back the Chick Kickers 1-0 at Marshall #4 for their second straight shutout. Newcomer Lauren Harris scored midway into the second half, after taking a ball into the box and tapping it past the keeper. The Impact enjoyed a few other chances with Edeen Ramsey shooting just to the right of the net, on a nifty feed from Heather Findlay. Sweeper Breanna Pickett was mighty and Julie Hamer was stellar in net. The Chick Kickers, under the direction of new head coach Gary Dill, worked hard in their first game, getting strong efforts from Bonnie Mann, Shauna Duncan, Wendy Magnus, Wendy Martens, and Kelly Mazurak. Newcomer Robyn Sherwood was outstanding in net. Goplen’s Drillers and North Okanagan United ran to a scoreless draw at Marshall #4. Shaun Nickoli recorded the clean sheet for the Drillers, having time to give herself a manicure due to the strong defensive play of newbie Barb Levesque, Krista MacCagno, Jody Peshko, Christine Castrucow, Kate Ball and Karen Zupp. The Drillers also welcomed Jen Poulin,

who enjoyed a magical game at midfield. Michelle Loxam, also a midfielder, delivered some sweet corners which resulted in near goals for the Drillers. Shelley Zupp, returning after a season away travelling, had some good chances in front of NOU’s net. Player of the Game for United was Lumby’s Penny Crebo-Dolman, who commanded the defensive line stopping every ball and running down anyone coming over the line. Dar Weis recorded the shutout, coming out and making several saves in and out of the net. Carly Bibby was tremendous up front, receiving many balls from the defenders and outside midfielders to create goals, but was thwarted by the unstoppable Nickoli. Midfielder Teresa Collins was first to the ball all game. The Controllers bowed 3-0 to Shuswap Merlot in their Masters opener Tuesday at MacDonald Park. An early defensive miscue proved costly for the Controllers as Merlot’s Julie Parenteau pounded a shot from 15 yards out to beat keeper Mickey Templeton. Early in the second half, Kelsey Norlin hit a line drive from well out that took a fortunate bounce past Templeton. Merlot added another before the final whistle. The Controllers had their chances but couldn’t find the back of the net. Midfielders Lesley Epp, Michelle Mercer and Shawn Yargeau had strong games, as did Krista Backer and Emma Louie up front.

Keeper Eileen Pelliccia denounced potential Dr. Lee goals with the solid backing of sweeper Cayla Brown and stopper Stephanie Conti. Defender Kristy Anderson started the advance of the first goal in the second half to Lee, who fashioned a Premier Leaguestyle string-of-pearl passes to forwards Maria Thorlakson and Neilson, with Lee slamming home the 3-0 goal. With talent, finesse and speed, veteran Sarah Strobila added the fourth goal. Lisa Stewart, Brianna Ostafie and Stacey Cover and Christine Fraser were especially sharp on the wings as the Texans parlayed team work, communication, fitness and fun into success. Excellent officiating was turned in by referee Shannon Mazereeuw and her assistants. In other first division action, Hailey Woon netted the hat trick as the AF Blazers shut out Wrap Zone 3-0 at Marshall Field #1. Woon opened the scoring 10 minutes into the first half, converting a cross from Shelby Price. Woon knocked in the second goal off a scramble after Jane Sutton crossed in a beautiful corner.

Brown nets trick in U13 tie Morning Star Staff

The Blues and Mangos drew 4-4 in a thrilling, raindrenched Royal LePage Under 13 boys soccer game Saturday afternoon at Marshall Field #2. Rylan Brown pulled the hat trick for the Blues, while Brandon Chai added a single. Steven Benischek and Seb Wenger turned in stellar showings for the Blues. Brendan Whitmore, Jude Kronbauer, Ethan Clancy and Jake Slade supplied goals for the Mangos, who got some regal play from Joe Bateman, Garrett Birch and Cooper McGeough. In other U13 play, the Whites shut down the Reds 2-0 with Chris Aldrich a superstar in goal as he capped off a dazzling performance by doing the splits and saving a sure goal with his toe in the last minute. Ben Poulin provided a gorgeous goal, placing the ball neatly inside the post. Brendan Yakura took a sweet corner which Gavin Huggins tapped it in for insurance. Tyler Jackson had a great second half for the Whites and outhustled everybody on the field. Bold defence came from Callum Watson and Jack Hesketh. In Subway U14/15 girls play Saturday in the drizzle, Team White Power Puff Girls clipped Team Silver 2-1 in a hardfought contest. Team White went up with the first goal coming of a strong boot from Paige Hanson with good ball movement from Kiona Ramsey. In the second half, Silver evened up the score, and then with time running down White was awarded a free kick which Tamara Nichol kicked and Paige Hanson deflected into the net. Avery Schneider and Emily Medema were solid in net. In Subway U18 girls action, H&L Glass grounded shorthanded H&R Block 5-2 with keeper Daniella Lenton using her big boot and good hand-eye co-ordination to stop many attacks from H&R.

H&R Block coach Shelly Johnston said Player of the Game Taylor Gray “was impenetrable on the back line working hard at attacking, checking and getting back to clear the zone.” Support came from Kaylee Barss, Kayla Berlinski and Carly Alexander. Added Johnston: “Megan Squair was unstoppable as she continually worked the line, leaving the opposition guessing what she could do next. With magnificent crosses and fancy foot work, she was a force, always looking up to send the ball over to the waiting strikers.” Squair and Erin Hickman provided the goals for H&L Glass, who got superb work from middles/forwards Maraid Raupach and Alyssa Embleton and centre mid Sam Bienias. In other U18 Subway play, Team Silver bounced Kia Reds 6-0. Scoring for Silver were Alysha Brule, Megan Johnson, Megan Reeves, Doortje Geelkerken, Ciana Fitzpatrick and Gabby Edblad. The Nixon Wenger Bombers battled Caufield Engraving to an entertaining 1-1 draw in another U18 match. The shortstaffed Bombers ran hard in the wet weather, but found themselves down a goal after Caufield struck on a rebound midway through the first half. Despite not having any subs, the Bombers came out determined to equalize in the second half,with Melanie Wakutz and Aliyah Akkurt both running miles in midfield. The Bombers were finally rewarded when Nicky Watson forced a turnover deep in the Caufield end and got the ball to Ashley Eso, whose cross found Wakutz alone in front of the net and she made no mistake. The Bombers got stellar goalkeeping from Watson and Kendall Tomiak, who was playing her first-ever game in net. In Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers U9 girls play during the Saturday morning mist at Creekside Park, the Navy Ninjas and Team Orange put on an entertaining show.

Splendid hustle was turned in by Ninjas’ Sophia Stoddart, Jorja Catt, Lily Lee, Cassidy Lavigne, Julianna Spitzer, Ekroop Janda, Kerah Trottier, Ava Wright and Macie Lewis. “Both teams were speedy and played the usual busy-bee formation,” said Ninja coach Shelly Johnston. “It was a game of fun and learning for all of the girls on both teams. The ref was very helpful and allowed the girls to practise their throw-ins and helped teach the rules of the game.”

The North Okanagan Bantam B Division local lacrosse rivals met Tuesday night with the B1 Legends besting the B2s 9-3 at Wesbild Centre. The B1 boys jumped out to an early 4-0 lead on two goals by Tyler Riva and one each from Shelby Conners and Tanner FrancisGilbert. The B2 Legends stayed in touch with a marker from Seth Waterstreet to make it 4-1 after the first period.

The B1 Legends netted four more in the second period by Francis-Gilbert, Riley Swiscoski, Chase Bronson and Thomas Mackeiwich against one by Seth Halvorson of the B2s. The B1 Legends cruised through the third period with one more goal from Connors, while Sean Howard replied for the B2s. In Pee Wee B1 action, the Legends parlayed a three-goal effort by Randall Toop into an 8-5 win over the Kelowna Kodiaks Sunday at Wesbild Centre.

Nathaniel Foster (2+1), Caedon Bellmann (2G) and Jaxxon Collard rounded out the offence, with Jacob Brewer and Ethan Lavoie each adding an assist.

Liberals running scared

T

he B.C. Liberal Party deserves credit for releasing its policy book in full on the eve of the formal election campaign. That’s about the only positive thing to be said about it. For those who take the time to read party leader Christy Clark’s 40-page booklet, there are a few nuggets of news. For instance, a re-elected B.C. Liberal government would continue its justice reform agenda by moving traffic ticket disputes out of courtrooms, as they did with impaired driving cases. Most of it consists of glowing descriptions of the government’s 12-year record, and attacks on the NDP of Tom Fletcher the kind that are not normally seen in a platform. This is consistent with Clark’s style since she was anointed party leader two years ago. The main focus, as revealed in February’s throne speech, is a plan to pay off B.C.’s growing debt and perhaps even get rid of the provincial sales tax with an Alberta-style “prosperity fund” from liquefied natural gas exports. Whether this is from imposing a new export tax on LNG or simply from a windfall of gas royalties is not clear. Clark and her energy minister contradicted each other on that when it was announced, and the platform doesn’t shed any new light. All we have is a big logo on the side of Clark’s campagn bus declaring “Debt free B.C.” As I’ve written before, there is plenty of real evidence of a huge new LNG industry in the making. As for paying off the $60 billion debt that the B.C. Liberals’ pre-election budget predicts will keep growing, cartoonist Adrian Raeside summed it up best: LNG revenues are “Christy Clark’s invisible friend.” Clark finished up last week with stops in

Terrace and Prince Rupert, promising an LNG windfall for local governments as well. She repeated the platform’s attack line that the NDP are going to wreck the trillion-dollar LNG boom with a Quebec-style moratorium on “fracking” to extract gas from deep shale formations. That’s not an outright lie, but it’s almost as speculative as Clark’s notions of a 30-year windfall that could at best barely start during the next fouryear term. The NDP are not calling for a moratorium on natural gas production. They’re calling for yet another “review,” one of many vague, wobbly positions that have been adopted by both dominant parties. An earlier premier named Glen Clark became famous for “freezing” things like ferry fares and car insurance rates. Now Christy Clark is “freezing” personal income tax rates for five years, and carbon tax rates too. That implies she’s planning to win this election and the next one, at a time when it is unclear whether she can even hold her own seat in Vancouver-Point Grey. The B.C. Liberals will cut small business taxes by a point, some time in the next five years. They will also increase income tax on large businesses and personal income of more than $150,000, but that’s not mentioned in their platform, since it goes against 12 years of their policy as a government. n A clarification of last week’s column on the B.C. Conservative platform. Leader John Cummins informs me his plan to phase out the carbon tax does not include reversing the personal and business income tax rate reductions that were legislated as the fuel tax reached its current level. The platform asserts that total provincial revenues will continue to rise in the next four years, despite the uncompensated loss of $1 billion from the carbon tax.

Northern Gateway pipeline proposal, which would carry Alberta oil sands crude to an export terminal at Kitimat. The B.C. Liberals have demanded five conditions for any expansion of heavy oil pipelines across B.C., including “world class” land and marine spill response capacity and a “fair share” of economic benefits.

Dix opposes oil pipeline plan Black Press

NDP leader Adrian Dix has indicated he won’t support the proposed expansion of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline from Alberta to Burnaby. Announcing his environment policy in Kamloops Monday, Dix stuck with his long-standing position that Kinder Morgan Canada must formally apply to twin its 60-year-old pipeline before he offers an opinion on it. But he added that he would not support a “five- or six-fold” increase in oil tankAdrian Dix er traffic from the company’s Westridge Marine Terminal shipping facility. Vancouver should not become a “major export oil port,” Dix said. Kinder Morgan is in the preliminary stages of applying for permits to nearly triple the capacity of its pipeline to about 850,000 barrels a day of crude oil. A company spokesman said last year that would mean more than 300 tankers a year traveling Burrard Inlet. That would be a steep increase over the current traffic. Increased export demand for Alberta oil sands crude brought a high of 69 tankers to Burnaby in 2010, but just 32 tankers were loaded in 2011. The NDP has opposed the competing Enbridge

Care policies differ tom fletcher Black Press

guaranteed!

1.888.440.4480 prospera.ca

Child care policies offer a clear choice between the B.C. Liberals and the NDP in the May 14 provincial election. Premier Christy Clark wants to take a provincially funded savings account set up for each child born since 2007, and hand out $1,200 to parents who open a Registered Education Savings Plan to begin saving for post-secondary training. Former premier Gordon Campbell established the fund when the B.C. government was enjoying budget surpluses, before the 2008 downturn in the world economy. That’s added to the B.C. Liberal early years strategy that includes fullday kindergarten, $142 million for child care subsidies, $34 million for Success by Six programs in 225 communities, and an additional $32 million promised over three years to help create new licensed child care spaces. NDP leader Adrian Dix has promised to cancel the RESP and other new spending, and redirect it to a family bonus program, a direct subsidy of up to $70 per month, per child for low-income families starting in 2014. The NDP plan would pay the full amount to families with annual income of $25,000 or less, with payments decreasing on a sliding scale to families with income under $66,000. Applying to all children under 18, the bonus program is projected to cost $210 million a year. Platform highlights: n The B.C. Conservative preelection platform offers no specific programs for child care or early childhood education. Its September 2012 policy document supports, “the principle that parents are the child’s first and most important teachers.” B.C. Conservatives also support a

Political parties have a wide range of ideas for care of young children. school voucher system, “ensuring that taxpayers’ dollars follow the student to provincially approved educational options,” and the principle that social services be “delivered by community-based organizations rather than directly by government.” n The B.C. Green platform promises to create “local child care trusts” monitored by the provincial government. Promised services include “child care, in-home support, emergency and crisis services, a guaranteed livable income and safe and adequate housing.” The B.C. Green platform offers no costing estimate for any of its programs. n The B.C. Liberals would require school districts to promote use of school property by licensed child care providers from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, and create a provincewide child care registry. n The B.C. NDP would immediately double earnings exemption for employable income assistance recipients, and allow a further exemption for child maintenance payments.

am certain that we all have experienced the challenges of making a major purchase in our lives. Whether a home, car, or even a savings investment, the actual cost is not easy to pin down with options to consider, financing costs and value for dollar. This is no different with government procurement on major items. I am certain you are aware of the large investment your government is making in equipping our Canadian Forces. After the last government’s 10 long years of capital neglect, your government has committed to ensuring our Canadian Forces are equipped to do the job of protecting us and our Canadian sovereignty. The amounts are staggering, but we are making certain that the purchases made will bring opportunities for Canadian jobs and businesses. The National Shipbuilding Colin Mayes Procurement Strategy will provide 15,000 jobs for Canadians. The two shipyards, one in Vancouver and one in Halifax, were the successful bidders. The budget to acquire these ships is $2.6 billion and it will not change. The cost to operate and maintain these ships is $150 million per year over 30 years. Currently, the builders are at the design stage. Our government has set up a secretariat to oversee this procurement to ensure it is done professionally and without political interference. The same can be said for the procurement of aircraft to replace the F-18s that have come to the end of their life cycle. We have committed to the development of the F-35s, and are currently reviewing the costs and capability of this aircraft to ensure Canadians receive value for dollar. The cost of replacing the F-18s is still $9 billion for 65 aircraft. This has not changed. The procurement secretariat is also overseeing this purchase. Remember, the delivery of the aircraft is spread out over twenty years and the life cycle of the aircraft’s operational costs is spread over 42 years. You can imagine the challenges for your government in making these types of purchases, but keep in mind the experience you had during your last major purchase. It takes time and you make decisions on the best information you have. Currently, we are accumulating the information so we can make the best decisions on behalf of all Canadians. Our ministers are doing proper due diligence. Colin Mayes is MP for Okanagan-Shuswap.

Take The Wiggles out of those rainbow coloured shirts singing cute songs about fruit salad, and replace them with four guys wearing blue jumpsuits rocking to Red Hot Chili Peppers/New Orleans-style rock, and you get the Imagination Movers. Like the Aussie entertainers, The Imagination Movers have their own kids’ TV show, on Disney Junior, and like The Wiggles, they sing songs that appeal to the younger set, but that’s where the comparison ends. These guys, who reference Revenge of the Nerds and play music that a dad in his Mötley Crüe T-shirt can enjoy, bring their Rock-O-Matic tour to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre for two shows Thursday. It was a random conversation between four New Orleans residents, Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott “Smitty” Smith, that started it all. As friends who bonded over watching Saints football games and as fathers of young children at the time, some of The Movers had previously performed in bands, but had taken on day jobs to help raise their families. “We were at a birthday party for Scott’s son, and we thought wouldn’t it be cool to combine the Red Hot Chili Peppers with Mr. Rogers,” said Collins, a multiinstrumentalist who is originally from the East Coast and has lived in the Big Easy, where his wife is from, since the early ‘90s. They now have five kids. “I started songwriting when I came home from work and we started dreaming up the show,” said Collins. “It happened by degrees. We were all over 30 at the time. I worked at a newspaper, so I had the skill sets and knew the networking side of things and had the business abilities to move it forward.” The Movers became a reality 10 years ago, but then the worst disaster to ever hit New Orleans came in 2005. That’s when the

Scott (Durbin), Dave and I had our houses destroyed. Everything was suspended. We had no jobs to report to. It was life interrupted,” said Collins, adding that Smith was the exception as he had to report to his day job as a firefighter and first responder. Already in negotiations with Disney, The Movers focused their energy on developing the show. “If we had any doubts, they all disappeared after Katrina, and Disney was committed... It was like somebody gets flooded; let’s take the situation and shake it up.” Since then, the group has filmed 75 episodes of its now hit music-and-comedy series for Disney Junior. The show now airs

in more than 55 countries and territories, in 12 languages. In addition, The Movers have also sold roughly 250,000 CDs and DVDs to date and won a 2009 Daytime Emmy Award for outstanding original song in the children’s show/animation category. They have performed twice at the White House as well as on Good Morning America, Live With Regis and Kelly, and The View. “We hope the show goes on for another 20 years,” said Collins, adding he and the fellow Movers wouldn’t be adverse to filming a live action feature film next. “These are all things we have been dreaming of. We want to ride making music as long as possible.” And that includes performing live. The Rock-O-Matic North American tour, which coincides with the Movers’ latest album

of the same name, follows the group’s 2011 In a Big Warehouse tour, which attracted 150,000 fans and was one of Pollstar magazine’s top 100 tours of the year. For his part, Collins is happy to head back on the road with his bandmates, after playing a small tour last month on the release of his solo album. “I went from playing to 37 people on my solo concert to 2,000 the next day with The Movers,” he laughed, saying things have really changed from those early days 10 years ago. “We started off slow with some technical problems. Basically we had three guitars not working. Not having all your instruments on would probably make you fall apart, but we laugh it off and move on. It’s half playing songs, and half being our goofy selves.”

And if that means transcending the genre of what a typical kids’ entertainer does, appealing to both the dad in the Beastie Boys T-shirt as well as little Johnny or Susie, then that’s just fine with The Movers. “A big part of how we relate is that we are real dads with real kids, and if people want to spend that time with us and feel the passion translate, then we’ve done our jobs,” said Collins. “Kids don’t fake smiles.” The Imagination Movers perform at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre for two shows, Thursday at 4 and 6:30 p.m. Regular seats are $35, while the Mini-Movers VIP package ($118.50) includes premium seating and a chance to meet The Movers. Both are available at the Ticket Seller box office, 250549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

Shuggie otis: Inspiration Information/ Wings of Love

gorgeously layered soulfunk mix that heralds a stunning take on future funk. Its guitar work is poetic in its not choices. Aht Uh Mi Head is a standout song that boils along like a pressure cooker, an atmospheric organ/guitar pairing that offers a new, singular take on what rock, funk and soul can do together. The music comes on like a light from a distant planet, giving glimpses of rarities that are whispered about and are surprising in their inventiveness and brilliance. Otis plays all the instruments and sings. Wings of Love is the “new” Shuggie Otis album, although the latest song is a live track recorded in 2000, an intense solo acoustic song called Black Belt Sheriff. Due to the wide

time span, Wings of Love has a compilation feel rather than that of a cohesive album. There are also traces of the time periods. Special has hints of disco and Tryin’ to Get Close to You is careless ‘70s lite-funk that the Cuervo and Jacuzzi crowd would indulge in. There are some of the adventurous sounds of this era in Give Me Something Good, a snappy jazz-funk tune with a galloping bass. The most luminous track is Walkin’ Down The Country, which captures the inner-city sunlight with Otis’ inspired Impressionsstyle vocal arrangement. It’s a song that sounds like a lost classic; sounds that these two albums contain much of.

VERY FUNNY SHOW

Otis doubles up on the funk

F

unk rock pioneer Shuggie Otis is a mysterious figure enshrouded in rock mythology as a super talented guitar prodigy who recorded a few great albums, guested on some other records, was asked to join the Rolling Stones, and then disappeared. The son of R&B band leader, Johnny Otis, Shuggie was hailed as a successor to Jimi Hendrix and acknowledged as a peer of Sly Stone and Stevie Wonder. He was a protoPrince: a multi-instrumentalist who started at age 12 in his father’s band. Otis is renowned for his restraint, imagination and maturity. For an illuminating insight, check out his encounter with fellow guitarist Roy Buchanan in the 1971 PBS program, Introducing Roy Buchanan. But that’s another story. The young legend who disappeared has come back. Inspiration Information/Wings of Love is a curious release. Inspiration Information is a rerelease of Otis’ 1974 album and Wings of Love is a collection of songs recorded from 1976 to 2000. Listing off tracks on

Pines deliberates on life choices The Place Beyond the Pines

H

andsome Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a midway motorcycle stuntman. He and his Heartbreakers defy gravity, spinning around inside a steel sphere to the delight of fair-goers all over America. This year, when the midway rolls into Schenectady, New York, Luke discovers he’s the father of a baby boy named Jason, Taylor & Howe as he is reintroduced to Jason’s mother, Romina (Eva Mendes). Moved by his son, Luke decides to stay and try to provide for his new family. However, there’s not a lot of work for motorcycle tricksters in Schenectady. Cashing in on his particular skill set will require turning to a life of crime, which ultimately changes many lives, over the course of many years. The Place Beyond the Pines is a film about how our choices lead to actions that change the world. Those closest to us are the most profoundly impacted, but those choices can roll on in time, changing lives in ways we couldn’t imagine. We say, “It’s a deep, rich, elegant exploration of fate.” TAYLOR: Or it’s just a long, slow film about a bunch of stuff that happens. No, I don’t believe that. A film about intentionality must be assumed to be deliberate. Pines has to be a work of art, there’s no way so many threads could come together so well by way of dumb luck. Yet, sometimes the film feels this way, as if they started writing one story that got interrupted, becoming another story. Life is sometimes like that, I suppose, breaking up our plans, our plots. HOWE: Place Beyond the Pines doesn’t rely on tricks or CGI to make it a powerful movie. It’s about family relationships and how far we are willing to go to keep them. It’s a little over two

hours and sometimes movies that long can fly by. This time my backside was telling me otherwise. I feel they could have cut 10-to-15 minutes from it and still left a solid movie. TAYLOR: I didn’t feel that way. I was happy to watch this film. It was lovely to look at. However, I don’t want to see it again. It was a slightly uncomfortable experience, as if you could tell from the start that these characters were doomed. I also don’t understand Gosling’s appeal. I understand that he’s a beautiful boy, but I can’t read him. He’s fine, but seems incapable of emoting. In this film, we see Mr. Gosling nervous, angry and sad to the point of weeping.

Community nutritionist Linda Boyd and local social potluck creator Gabe Newman prepare for the Community Family Dinner at Caetani House.

Sit down for a family dinner Editor’s note: The following is from the North Okanagan Early Childhood Development Coalition. Unplug, eat together and talk. There aren’t many things you can do as a parent that are as powerful as eating together with your children. The North Okanagan Early Childhood Development Coalition has partnered with the Caetani House to plan and host an exciting community family dinner to do just that. This fun-filled, family event will be held in the beautiful gardens of the Caeteni Cultural Centre on May 4. Families will sit down together to enjoy a feast of spaghetti and meatballs, salad and healthy dessert served family style, and in true Italian spirit, lots of talking and laughing. Conversation starters and

belly laughs will be inspired by local story teller and Social Potluck creator Gabe Newman. Christine Pilgrim (aka Miss Juul) will lead the play of old-fashioned outdoor games that artist Sveva Caetani may have played as a child. Guests will also be invited to help create beautiful floral centre pieces to decorate the tables and create their own keepsake placemats to take home. Tickets for the Community Family Dinner are $10 each or $25 for a family of four, $5 for each additional child. Tickets are available at the Okanagan Science Centre in Polson Park. For more information, contact Lynne Reside at 250-938-5450 or coordinator@ noecdcoalition.ca. This family-friendly event is part of Unplug and Play week

April 27 to May 4. The benefits of eating together include: Better nutrition Increased social skills Increased vocabulary Greater success at school Less likely to engage in risky behaviors like doing drugs, using alcohol, or smoking Most important, eating together can help increase family connectedness by providing a secure environment for kids to talk with you on a regular basis. It’s never too early or too late to start making family meals a tradition in your house. For more information on getting your family more involved with cooking and eating together follow the blog and find great recipes at http://bettertogetherbc.ca/

When asked how many children I have, I respond with a shrug and a smile and say, “I have three daughters and a son.” It’s interesting to watch someone’s facial expression when you tell them that, yes, in this day and age, I have four kids...and on purpose too! My husband and I decided that we wanted to have four children, so there were no surprises when we found out we were pregnant with any of them. What was a surprise to both of us was that two of our children were diagnosed with a disorder known as autism. Autism is a neurological disorder that typically appears in children by the time they are three years old (though often undiagnosed until older). It impairs their ability to socialize, communicate and use their imagination in ways that are non-repetitive. It affects a child’s behaviour because, often, the child cannot tell you what they need or want. Autism is very puzzling. Research is ongoing. There are a number of theories, ranging from genetic and environmental factors to gastrointestinal (gut-brain connection) issues. It is a mystery to us that out of our children, two ended up with this disorder...why didn’t all four of them?

Our son was only three years and two months old when he was diagnosed with PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder -Not Otherwise Specified) under the Autism Spectrum. His “red flags” were not as obvious as described by all the books I’d read about autism. He was referred for assessment because he didn’t start to talk, or even babble, until he was 32 months old, and even then, he spoke with a lot of jargon (we just thought he was a late-talker); he did a lot of eyetracking with his trains and cars (he would lay on the floor sideways, and push the car back and forth right in front of his eyes, for up to half an hour at a time); he made very little eye-contact; he hated to be read to, but liked to look at books by himself; he never answered his name when called; he didn’t show excitement or enthusiasm for new toys or grandparents coming to visit; he was very noise-sensitive; he didn’t like to be around a lot of people. He hated the “happy birthday” song and cried for hours when he heard it. Our daughter didn’t get diagnosed until she was four years and one month old. By this time, our son had been doing behaviour-intervention therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy through the North Okanagan Neurological Association (NONA) for more than three years. You would think that we would’ve been experts on the symptoms of Autism Spectrum by that point, but obviously, we weren’t. And that’s because our daughter talked at 18 months old, was always happy and excited, quite loud and boisterous, seemed very sociable and was full of imagination. She was the complete opposite of her

brother. Yet, it was still recommended that we have her assessed because of some of her social behaviour observed at preschool. She was really good at playing, however once another child entered her play-centre, she would walk away, or she would play with the toys only one certain way. She looked past the teachers rather than at them when talking to them. She was obsessed with looking at herself in the mirror and watching herself dance. As well, she had a hard time with back-and-forth conversation, and one or two step directions. Both kids were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (PDD-NOS), yet they couldn’t be more different if they tried. I could go on and on about our children, however the main reason I wanted to tell our story is to let parents know that there is help out there if you think your child is developmentally delayed. With autism, there is provincial funding available for programs such as behaviour intervention. My husband and I were shocked at our son’s diagnosis, but within minutes, we were told about the funding available to get the help we needed, as well as the services available both privately and through NONA. Six years later, our son is an imaginative, fun-loving, wellmannered, smart boy with an amazing sense of humour who interacts with his peers. He and his sister have very busy days. They go to school and then to their behaviour intervention sessions. They are amazing kids. They have good days and bad days which is to be expected because, unfortunately, autism doesn’t disappear.

Donations needed for food banks to fight hunger Morning Star Staff

While spring means time of renewal for many, it also means dwindling resources at food banks. British Columbia food banks assist an average of 96,100 individuals each month, 29.5 per cent of whom are children. Grocery shoppers are encouraged to help by donating food and/or funds to the Extra Helping Food Drive from now until May 9 at their local Real

A time to love and a time to hate, Vs. 14: “know that whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever, and God doeth it that man shall fear before Him.”

Canadian Superstore and Wholesale Club. “Hunger is a reality for far too many families and individuals in British Columbia” says Laura Lansink executive director, Food Banks BC. “The Extra Helping Food Drive is essential in helping local food banks replenish their stock and address the issue of hunger in our communities. And, 100 per cent of the food raised in the community, stays with the local community food banks.” According to Food Banks Canada, most needed non-perishable food items include: pasta products, rice, canned meat and fish, dry and canned soups and stews, canned fruit and vegetables, flour, hot/ cold cereals, whole grain cereals, peanut butter, packaged or canned/powdered milk, fruit juices, pasta sauce, beans and legumes, infant formula and baby food. Loblaw Companies Limited and its banner stores hope to raise $1.8 million and 1.8 million pounds of food in 2013. Last year, food banks in B.C. helped close to 100,000 people throughout the province, 30 per cent of whom were children.

ear Annie: When I was 11 years old, I made an insulting remark to one of my older sister’s teenage friends, teasing her about her acne. The next day, my mother loudly confronted me about it, and my grandmother and sister joined in. For the next sever- Kathy mitchell & marcy sugar al months, if I said anything my mother didn’t like, she’d angrily remind me of the horrible thing I’d done. For years after, she’d allude to it. This continued until I was close to 30. Last year, my mother told me this same girl had been working as a waitress after dropping out of college, and that my comments about her acne had ruined her self-esteem. At that point, I tracked her down and asked her whether she was still upset with me over the incident all those years ago. She said she didn’t remember it at all. She said her lifestyle choices were the result of her rebelling against her domineering parents and had nothing to do with me. During a recent car trip with my parents, my mother brought this up again. I said, “That was 24 years ago, and I’m tired of hearing about it. If you don’t stop, I will leave.” My mother told me to “go,” and I had my father pull over, and I took my bag and walked home.

I haven’t spoken to my parents in six months, and I don’t miss them. Really, Annie, when can a 35-year-old man expect forgiveness for something he did when he was 11? I may have been a rude kid, but I had a mother who called me “fat” and “pudgy.” I guess I learned it from her. Is my mother crazy, or do I have to do some penance? — New Yorker Dear New Yorker: Your mother seems vindictive and obsessive. You have acknowledged your rudeness toward this young woman and, we assume, apologized to her at some point. But when a child is 11, a parent should use such incidents to teach kindness. Your mother used it as an excuse to hold something over your head for eternity. You are right not to tolerate such comments any longer.

Bridge by Phillip Alder

DO NOT FORGET TO COUNT THE POINTS Virginia Woolf said, “On the outskirts of every agony sits some observant fellow who points.” It is a sad fact of bridge that it does not matter how great your bidding might be. If you do not make the contract, the opponents get points. In this deal, how should South plan the play in four hearts? West leads the spade king. East overtakes with his ace and returns his second spade. West takes this trick, cashes the club ace, and plays another club. When West’s onespade opening bid was passed around to South, his balancing three-heart jump overcall was intermediate,

showing a respectable sixcard suit and 14 to 16 highcard points. North would no doubt have bid four hearts anyway, but West’s three-spade rebid definitely pushed him into it. East let the prevailing vulnerability dissuade him from bidding four spades. (Note that four spades doubled goes down two, minus 500.) Declarer must play the heart suit without loss. If the opponents had passed throughout, South would have taken the finesse. (A priori, East will have the heart king 50 percent of the time, but West will have a singleton king only 13 percent of the time.) Here, though, South must remember the bidding. East passed over his partner’s opening bid and has already

produced the spade ace. If he also had the heart king, he would have had seven points and would have responded. Therefore, West has the king of hearts. South should play a heart to his ace and claim when the king luckily drops. Especially when an opponent opened, always check the high-card points.

Ellis, Gordon Aubrey Colin born January 31, 1942 in Towcester, Northamptonshire, England passed into the presence of his Lord and Saviour on April 16, 2013. From a farm background Colin emigrated to Canada in early 1959. He spent his working life on farms in Saskatchewan and Alberta. He was equally adept with livestock and the largest farm machinery. Colin retired to Vernon, B.C. over 15 years ago. His kindly and helpful manner endeared him to many. A tall, strong man he spent his summers in the mountains enjoying nature and wild life. His last days were spent at the Vernon Hospice. On Sunday, April 21, 2013 about 20 of his friends gathered at the Hospice for a time of thanksgiving to God for the life of Colin and a sharing of memories led by his cousin Peter Ellis and wife Ursula of Fergus, Ontario. Colin’s ashes will be sprinkled in the mountains where he spent so many happy summers.
