Possible drug lab found in city hotel RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A portion of Vernon’s 30th Avenue was shut down Thursday morning as police investigated a possible drug lab. Officers converged on an apartment in the Kalamalka Hotel after staff alerted them of items consistent with a former laboratory Wednesday before 11 a.m. “It’s a slow methodical process,” said Cpl. Gerry Kovacs of the ongoing investigation. The RCMP’s E division clandestine lab unit was notified and it was determined there were substances of concern that needed to be seized. Once on scene Thursday, the unit closed 30th Avenue, between 30th and 31st streets, so officers had space for their gear. Measures were taken to ensure public safety, but Kovacs says there was no risk. “The businesses were open,” he said, adding that pedestrian traffic also continued. Kovacs says it’s unknown if the suite was actually used for drug production or what drug was found on scene. “A professional chemical disposal company will handle all of the chemicals in an environmentally friendly manner.” The room was unoccupied when the possible lab was discovered, and the previous tenant is in prison on unrelated matters. “They are co-operating with investigators and whether they are involved or not involved is yet to be determined,” said Kovacs.

School district to issue pink slips to teachers RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Sweeping cuts are looming in the Vernon School District. Trustees have tackled a $2.2 million shortfall in 2013/14 by cutting 19 teaching positions, 1.4 school-based administration staff and one custodian. There will also be reduced maintenance staff, while bus routes will be consolidated and inflationary costs for supplies must be absorbed within existing budgets. “We examined all of our options,” said Bill Turanski, board chairperson. “We are trying to maintain the educational levels we have now.” The 2013/14 budget is based on a projected 178 fewer students than were enrolled in 2012. Turanski says the district’s financial woes are a result of costs climbing while

provincial funding is based on enrolment. “The solution would be for the ministry to recognize there are two formulas — the basic structural system and students (based on enrolment),” he said. The scope of the cuts has angered the Vernon Teachers Association. “Losing 19 teachers means most cuts will directly impact the classroom,” said Kevin Bader, president. “Secondary students will have fewer program options and from kindergarten to Grade 12, classroom sizes will be higher.” Some teacher positions will be added to international and distributed learning programs. Bader doesn’t believe student enrolment can be the only consideration when creating budgets. “We have an increased number of students with complex learning needs and they need support. There are also

increased costs,” he said. Bader says trustees could have explored other cost-cutting measures such as restructuring district management. And the worst may not be over for the district. Trustees are pursuing a variety of strategic directions in 2013/14, including a secondary school restructuring review and determining if there are possible school or program reductions. The district will also review student walk limits, school supplies and school administration and clerical staff levels. Turanski admits it’s been stressful for trustees to make tough financial decisions. “We’ve been doing this for at least eight years now,” he said. “We hope that the future will see an end to these difficult budget cuts necessary to match dwindling resources to our school district.”

Doctor shortage dominates stage at forum roger knox Morning Star Staff

A shortage of doctors is Enderby’s biggest issue. And Shuswap riding MLA candidates from four political parties were keenly aware of that issue at a provincial election forum, at the seniors complex Tuesday, hosted by the Enderby Chamber of Commerce. The second question asked of the four candidates in attendance was what they would do to attract doctors to work in Enderby. “I know your council has been working tirelessly to try and bring more doctors to Enderby and I’d be more than happy to come in and work with them,” said Tom Birch, Conservative Party candidate. “This is a top priority for the Shuswap. We are all rural communities and absolutely need to bring the doctors here. It’s not going to be a straight forward easy path.” A shortage of doctors is an issue creeping into all rural communities, said Chris George of the Green Party. “What the province could do is show leadership and work with the excellent facilities we have in the Lower Mainland to create more spaces for doctors for training,” said George. “We would work with repaying some of their tuition. If doctors agreed to come to a smaller community for five, six or seven years, we should be able to refund some of their tuition.” Liberal candidate Greg Kyllo told the crowd of 120 – the vast majority being seniors – that available health care is a lifeblood of the community. “I know there are people going outside Enderby to visit a doctor and it’s driving commerce out of Enderby,” said Kyllo. “I would be more than happy to sit down with council to get more doctors and maybe nurse practitioners into this community. Sicamous (Kyllo’s hometown) just added a full-time nurse practitioner which has taken a lot of the load off the local doctor, and it’s a costeffective alternative.” After talking to a UBCO doctor who specializes in the delivery of medicine to rural areas, Steve Gunner of the NDP said the area should be looking at other models of health care delivery, such as hiring nurse practitioners. Gunner also believes Enderby is battling the stigma of being a small town. “All of the young doctors don’t seem to want to come to communities like Enderby, they prefer Vancouver where there’s a perception of better schools and things,” said Gunner, who lives in Armstrong. “Nurse

In Armstrong, we have the Haugen Community Healthcare Society which is a fairly innovative way that a community supports local doctors by providing a place to practice.” Johanna Zalcik of the Advocational International Democratic Party, who was just added to ballot this week, did not participate in the forum. The audience provided moderator Sandy Thon of the Enderby Toastmasters with a variety of questions for the candidates, Gunner was asked what his party would do to protect B.C. salmon. “Native salmon made B.C.,” he said. “It provides food for the entire food chain and brings iodine up here so we have healthy animals. Without the salmon, we wouldn’t have the wildlife and biodiversity we have. Salmon fishing is an important par of B.C.’s economy. The Cohen Commission (of Inquiry into the decline of sockeye salmon in the Fraser River) has lots of issues surrounding salmon farms. The NDP will follow the recommendations of the commission.” Kyllo was questioned about whether his party would return seniors’ pensions to lev-

els established prior to the Liberals forming government. “Looking at the crowd, I know how I probably should answer,” said Kyllo, which drew laughter from the crowd. “We have to have low taxation rates. The taxation rates are substantially lower now than in the 1990s (when the NDP was in power). Seniors need to have proper funding. I’ll do whatever I can but without a strong and healthy economy, there’s only so much money to go around.” On the topic of seniors, specifically support for supportive housing for Enderby seniors, George heartily agreed. “I would like to see assisted living facilities and extended care homes in smaller communities appropriately sized, that would bring good jobs to smaller communities and provide continuity of community for all of the people who live here now that do not want to move away because they’re no longer able to stay in their homes,” said George. “We’d also add funds to community health nursing to help people stay in their homes even longer.” Birch is a big fan of a trail network that links communities such as Salmon Arm, Enderby, Grindrod and Armstrong. So when

asked if he would replace the now-defunct rail line between Armstrong and Grindrod with a trail system, Birch said “perhaps.” “This particular rail line, I’m really not sure what the future plans would be,” said Birch. “Two colleagues have alluded to a time where it would be useful again and I wouldn’t want to lose that opportunity. Maybe a compromise is possible, You could do trails alongside the rail line. A direct plan should be laid out. If there’s really no plan and no real vision for the line, yes, it would become available for trails. If there’s a real plan, then great, let’s keep it.”

Crown appeals sentence for Vernon lawyer Morning Star Staff

A year in jail for a Vernon lawyer is not enough for the Ministry of Justice’s criminal justice branch. The branch has filed an application for leave of appeal from sentence in the case against William Mastop, 46. The Vernon defence lawyer pleaded guilty to participating in the activities of a criminal organization and was sentenced last month to one year in jail. “The criminal justice

branch reviewed the Reasons of the Justice who sentenced Mr. Mastop to assess whether there was a legal basis on which to initiate an appeal from sentence,” said Neil MacKenzie, branch communications counsel. “In accordance with branch policy, the Crown will generally only initiate an appeal from sentence where it has concluded, in light of the facts of the case and the applicable law, that a reasonable basis

can be advanced for seeking a variation of the sentence imposed. “It is, of course, up to the appellate court

to ultimately assess whether the sentence was unfit and a variation is warranted.” MacKenzie said in

a press release that a determination was made in Mastop’s case that an appeal should be initiated.

The branch filed an application with the B.C. Court of Appeal that seeks to have the sentence of imprison-

ment increased. A tentative hearing date for the appeal has been set for July 18 in Vancouver.

Falkland responders facing tough times Morning Star Staff

A Falkland group that helps residents during medical emergencies is facing financial difficulties. The Falkland-Westwold First Responders reports that donations are down and that has impacted the ability to operate. “The figures are grim,” said Judy Vandergucht, secretary-treasurer. “With our costs constantly growing, such as hydro, insurance and new pagers, we are having problems keeping our head above water.” The society is seeking its annual grant from the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District but it may be a month before the CSRD considers that request. “This was disappointing news as operating funds are in short supply at the moment,” said Vandergucht. The Thompson-Nicola Regional District has also been asked to provide funding. “We are thankful for the grant from the Kalamalka Rotary Club to pay for training,” said Vandergucht. Fundraising options are being considered, including concerts, an auction and a dinner. “We will be running the scoreboard for the Stanley Cup playoffs and will be available for people to make their bets in the pub,” said Vandergucht. The society will also run a food booth at the Falkland Stampede. The society recently held its annual general meeting and Brad Caldwell was named president. Vice-president is Joan Berg while the directors are Tammy Schneider and Ally Talbot. Tammy Schneider is training officer and Debbie Le Poidivin is dispatcher.

Former police officer Geoff Mantler was handed a suspended sentence and 18 months probation for kicking brain-injured Buddy Tavares in the head in a Kelowna incident that was caught on video. “I agree that it is easy to be the Monday morning quarterback and evaluate the situation that occurred on Jan. 7, 2011 in slow motion from the comfort of a judge’s chair,” said Judge Greg Koturbash Thursday. “There are no sirens blaring in the background, there is no potential of a gun fight, no innocent civilians in harm’s way and my body is not impaired by the powerful drug

called adrenaline.” oblivious” to the fact Koturbash cited a police were looking for “calamity of errors” in him, and Mantler’s next describing the moments move after pulling in leading up to the kick, behind Tavares “was a beginning critical error in with the 911 judgement.” caller not “Regardless asking what of what he Tavares had believed, been shoot(police expert) ing at when Sgt.

slowly directing Tavares out of the vehicle and on to the ground with very concise commands. Inste ad he approached the vehicle and ordered Tavares out with “vague” commands. He kicked Tavares when he saw Tavares’ hands move up for a “fraction of a second” as he was getting down on all fours, the court heard. “One of the reasons for the errors made by Const. Mantler and his skewed perception of the events confronting him was his lack of experience. He was not a seasoned veteran officer who threw all his training to the wind and acted like some out of control cowboy,” said Koturbash. The kick, added Koturbash, was not given out of anger and is a factor in why Mantler does not face jail. “He misjudged and outrageously miscalculated the need and degree of force necessary to conduct the arrest,” said Koturbash. “He reacted out of panic and a sense of urgency. If there had been an indication that the kick was an act of gratuitous violence, or a result of anger, jail would have been the only option.”

Koturbash sided with the Crown’s sentencing submission of a suspended sentence and probation for the 30-year-old, who pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm partway through a trial in December. He rejected defence’s request for a conditional discharge. “In my opinion, discharges ought not to be commonly granted where the offence involves an assault of person under the control of a police officer,” said Koturbash. “The public needs to be assured they can expect law enforcement to respect the law. A conditional discharge would not help restore the trust that has been breached.” Mantler’s probation includes 50 hours of community work and a victim-offender reconciliation with Tavares, should Tavares choose to participate. Tavares, however, says it is “never going to happen.” “I’ve spent enough time thinking about it,” he said. However, he said it was “good” that Mantler did not get a discharge, which would leave him without a conviction on his record after a period of time.

Mill proposal draws support richard rolke Morning Star Staff

There appears to be broad support for a Grindrod company’s expansion plans. About 150 people attended an Agricultural Land Commission meeting Tuesday to discuss North Enderby Timber’s application to swap property for industrial activities. “It was a packed house,” said Jackie Pearase, Regional District of North Okanagan director. “There was huge support for the mill. It was about 50 people (in favour) speaking to five (against) with some sitting Jackie Pearase on the fence.” North Enderby Timber wants to exclude 4.9 hectares adjacent to its Highway 97A site from the Agricultural Land Reserve so it can be used for a log storage yard and dry kiln. In return, the company wants to convert a former Greg McCune 4.9-hectare log sort yard on Crandlemire Road into agricultural capabilities. The company is concerned that if it doesn’t replace a kiln that was destroyed by fire in 2012, it could lose customers. However, some residents are concerned about noise and dust on Highway 97A and reclamation of the Crandlemire Road site. “Some of the issues being brought up already exist about the mill,” said Pearase. RDNO directors had been warned by district staff not to endorse North Enderby Timber’s plans during Tuesday’s meeting because if the ALC approves the application, the company must then apply to RDNO for rezoning amendments and a development permit. Staff suggested directors endorsing the company’s proposal at the ALC session could lead to some residents believing directors are not being objective when they consider zoning changes. Pearase did not speak at the meeting Tuesday. “It’s the ALC’s decision at this point so I sat back and listened. I am keeping an open mind,” she said. Greg McCune, an Enderby councillor, did make a presentation. “I spoke as a business owner and resident of the area,” he said. “We struggle to keep the community sustainable and without employers, it’s difficult to plan,” he said. “They are a good corporate citizen and they employ a lot of people.”

It only hurts a little

ike most people, I’m not overly fond of needles, but every 56 days, I can be found at the blood donor clinic with an IV sticking out of my arm as my blood drips into a collection bag. In Vernon, blood donor clinics are held at Trinity United Church, and at the last clinic, I was in and out in under an hour. On the one hand, I was pleased to be processed so quickly. On the other hand, I was disheartened to see how few people had turned out to give blood. I urge all of those who can give blood to do so. Obviously, there are a number of reasons why people can’t: from age restrictions to religious Katherine Mortimer reasons, from having a communicable disease to having lived in certain parts of the world. But for those who can, it is one of the easiest ways of giving back. If I won the lottery, I’d be giving away a lot more of my income to worthy groups, but since the chances of winning the lottery are close to nil, I have limited funds to donate to the groups I support. But giving blood costs you nothing but a little bit of your time. Every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood, much of which is used under emergency situations. In Canada, hundreds of thousands of people each year receive blood components or blood products following accidents, during surgery or for cancer treatments, burn therapy, hemophilia and other blood-related diseases. The average amount of blood in one person is five litres or 10.5 pints; there are approximately 450 ml of blood in a unit, and on average, 4.6 units of blood are required per patient. In my case, my blood type is one of the rarer types out there, so I’m happy to give some of it away. The process is so simple. You make an appointment online or by calling 1-888-2-DONATE, you show up and are greet-

At RAndoM

ed by a friendly face, who directs you to an RN who then does a quick finger prick to check your hemoglobin levels. And then it’s off to a private booth to answer a few questions. The worst part, for many, is not the needle, it’s the questions each donor is asked by an RN, in private, no matter how many times you’ve donated in the past. For many of us, the questions are not only amusing, but horrifying invasive. The questions begin easily enough with, “Do you feel well today?” They’re followed by questions such as “Have you spent a total of six months or more in France from Jan. 1, 1980 through Dec. 31, 1996.” And then there are the downright strange questions: “Have you, in your past or present job, taken care of or handled monkeys or their body fluids?” These are followed by the really personal, involving sexual habits and drug consumption. It’s hard not to feel like a 12-year-old giggling in a Grade 7 sex education class, but after the tainted blood scandal back in the ‘90s, I’m more than happy to answer questions that will keep our blood supply safe. But once that’s all done, a friendly volunteer takes you to an available bed. There, you recline in comfort, have a blood pressure cuff attached to your upper arm and are taken care of by an RN as your blood is collected. There is something incredibly comforting about being taken care of by a nurse. Maybe it’s because my mom is no longer here, but I’ll take all the TLC I can get. And if it means I’m doing some good at the same time, so much the better. And when you’re all done, the same friendly volunteer escorts you to the snack table. There, they stamp your card with the date of the donation and you’re encouraged to enjoy a juice box or coffee and as many cookies as you want to boost your blood sugar. And then you get a sticker to wear that tells your friends and family, “Be nice to me, I gave blood today!” Mother Teresa urged people to “give until it hurts.” And I promise, it only hurts a little.

It’s no surprise that the issue of physicians came up at the Enderby all-candidates forum Tuesday and then rural health care again came up in Armstrong Wednesday. After all, there is currently just one permanent doctor for the community of 7,200 people. “The delivery of health care in the rural area is abysmal,” said Armstrong resident and former mayor Jerry Oglow at Wednesday’s forum. Residents are forced to travel to bigger centres like Vernon and Salmon Arm to seek medical attention. While there, many are buying prescriptions, groceries and spending their dollars in other communities. And that’s driving commerce out of the smaller centres. Therefore the suggestion of utilizing nurse practitioners is one many candidates agree on. There has also been the suggestion that more preventative measures need to be taken to take the burden off the health care system. People who eat better and exercise regularly are healthier, therefore don’t need to visit the doctor as often. So everyone can agree that something needs to be done, and there are some realistic suggestions on the table. Whoever gets elected will need to take such suggestions (whether they are their own, their fellow candidates’ or the citizens’) and make them a reality. It’s evident through these recent forums that health care is a top priority among many Shuswap residents. Therefore the elected official needs to make it their top priority as well.

Think education this election

I

f supporting education is important to you, please don't vote Liberal May 14. Why not? After all, haven’t the B.C. Liberals promised to “protect education”? And under the Liberals, doesn’t education have the “highest funding ever?” Here’s what the Liberals' plan says. On Feb. 19, 2013, in the Legislature, Finance Minister Mike de Jong tabled his budget estimates. Education program net funding for this year is pegged at $5.248 billion, for next year it will be $5.224 billion. This is a reduction of nearly $24 million. Now the Liberals tell us that enrolment in public schools is on the decline, and they are right.

In Vernon, for instance, we will have about 175 fewer students next year. As a result, our school board will reduce the number of teachers by 19. Even with the savings from these teacher reductions, because of other cost pressures (increased MSP premiums, inflation on utilities and fuel, increased pension contribu-

simple economics Many wealthy people have an ability to invent and produce new products, devise new or provide unique ways of providing existing services as a form of creativity and as a challenge. Through their investments, they create employment. Most corporations reward their investors through innovation and growth – employing their profits to improve productivity, market share, and the quality of their products or services. Through their investments, they create employment. We are led to believe that the B.C. NDP promises to collect $550 million in increased taxes from the wealthy and large corporations. It shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that this will result not only in less money available for investment in growth, but also less growth in employment, or perhaps even an increase in unemployment in order for corporations to pay their taxes through downsizing. In the end, there is much evidence that increased taxes equals increased unemployment. As they have proven over the years, NDP governments do not understand simple economics. The NDP keeps trying to buy our votes with promises of unsustainable increased consumption. With a perfect record, this has been proven over and over again. Just ask the Charlie Browns of this country who keep voting for them until they learn the truth. If we don’t learn from history, it usually takes

R #

tion costs, etc.) the board will still be facing a funding gap of about 1.5 million dollars. And this is not the first year of such cuts. And we are not the only ones affected. This same situation is facing school boards all across this province. Now as a voter, you may be fine with that. Perhaps education isn’t

another catastrophic NDP term in office to remind us. Kel Derek street improveD I live on 20th Street, and it looks much better then before. Why weren't the residents of 20th Street doing their due diligence before the project started and opposing then? Also, to me the numbers from the survey say half of the respondents are happy (we responded to the survey positively), and half aren't. The project is done, suck it up. My wife and I have lived in Vernon for four years now, and we have noticed one thing regarding taxpayer-funded projects here: Vernon residents hate change. We vote for a project and then immediately start complaining about it. It's true. People complain about new developments, changes to old developments, changing roads, adding crosswalks and bike lanes, track and field facilities, adding a dog park, adding a kids' park, removing some kind of park, adding a traffic light, adding a road sign, road sanding in the winter, street cleaning in the spring, skate parks, etc. You name it, Vernon hates it. It's shocking to us. Not sure if it's due to the aging population with the, "If it ain't broke" attitude, or if it is how terrified residents are of taxes. Whatever it is, Vernon is currently in an eco-

that important to you. Fair enough. But, if like me, you believe that education is the cornerstone of our future, please look at the policies of the other major parties before you mark your ballot. The B.C. Conservatives, “commit to ending the Pacific Carbon Trust” and allow schools to keep that funding in their budgets. The B.C. Green Party is promising to, “move towards a more equitable system of adequately funded education.” The B.C. NDP is promising “to spend $265 million over three years to hire new teachers, counsellors, education assistants and librarians.” Some proposals are more supportive of education than others, but none of them represents a step backward like the Liberals' plan. barry Dorval

It's good exercise. lee Waters bill's place I am writing this letter in response to your article about the opening of Bill’s Place in April 28th’s paper. I have received many positive comments on the quality of the photo and the excellent reporting of Roger Knox. Well done. As a family, we are grateful and humbled by the response to Bill’s legacy. In the spirit of my late husband Bill, he would never have taken the credit alone so let me take this opportunity to recognize the dedicated people who have honored his legacy and made Bill’s Place a reality. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better than Barb Levesque to carry on his vision. As executive director of the John Howard Society, she has worked tirelessly with the JHS Board, local politicians and staff to make this a reality.

fix tHe meters I had an appointment at the X-ray clinic across from the police station recently. I parked and went to put money in the meter. I put a loonie in and noticed the meter still at zero minutes. I looked closer at the meter and it states this meter does not take loonies or toonies from 2012 or newer. So I put in a quarter as I only had dimes and nickels left. I think it is crazy, first of all to raise the rates then not accept coins that are our country's money. Jenice minamide

Flood protection promoted Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan residents living along lakes, creeks and rivers should try and reduce the risk of flooding. Above average seasonal temperatures in the coming week will increase flows and levels of water bodies throughout the region, making flooding more likely. “Affected property owners adjacent to creeks, streams and lakes are responsible for having a plan as well as the tools and equipment necessary to protect their properties from possible flood damage,” said Helen Sinclair, deputy emergency management co-ordinator.

Byron Chatham’s dedication to supporting Independent Living Vernon is continuing through family and friends. Chatham, an enthusiastic cyclist, rode in the Cycling for Independence every year since he was 13. He was one of the top fundraisers of the event, which supports individuals with various disabilities. Two years ago, Chatham passed away, but family and friends will be riding for him under Team Byron at Sunday’s event at People Place. The 14th annual event features a 50 km crankhammer at 8:30 a.m., a 20 km fun ride goes at 9:30 a.m. and the 12 km family fun ride starts at 10 a.m. Following the cycle there is lunch, a massage, and chance to win door prizes. Registration is $35 (children under 12 are free), but is waived with over $100 in pledges. “The funds from this event will got to support ILV’s Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU) peer support group,” said Laura Hockman, executive director. The YOU group is a unique peer support for youth, aged 16-29, with a variety of disabilities. It offers youth the opportunity to meet other youth with similar or different disabilities while learning about skill development topics and having fun. The group has tackled topics such as suicide prevention, Earth Day celebration, healthy eating, sun smarts, skills for your first job, violence prevention, budgeting and self-defense. One-onone support is also available through the group. The YOU group meets Mondays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Telus has already dialed in some significant support to the cause with a $5,000 donation.

Foster challenged at forum richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Eric Foster was forced to defend his record Wednesday. The other candidates were asked if the Liberal incumbent had been a good MLA during a forum at Lumby’s White Valley Community Centre. “There are some

there are 2,600 managers or directors and the top end is making $200,000 to $300,000. The government is giving the bureaucracy money and they suck it up and spend it.” Mark Olsen, NDP candidate, told the crowd of about 70 people that the Liberals have taken Vernon-

things Mr. Foster has done right, and especially better than the NDP would do,” said Scott Anderson, with the Conservatives. However, Anderson says the Liberal government has allowed spending to get out of control. “In the Interior Health Authority,

Monashee for granted. “ Two schools were opened but two schools were closed,” he said. Olsen also questioned why Vernon Jubilee Hospital is only getting 14 net new beds, and he pointed to new seniors housing in Lumby and stated that was a result of the developer, IHA and the village’s mayor. “That’s not something Mr. Foster can take credit for,” said Olsen. Independent Korry Zepik admitted he has not followed Foster’s activities that closely. “We need to make sure the issues of resource development and healthy lives go beyond all parties,” he said of the need to work together on climate change.

Lumber, meat regulations take spotlight Continued from A14 Foster was asked if he wanted to respond to the candidates’ comments and he did. “There is a brand new hospital tower in Vernon and a new hospital in Kelowna,” he said. Foster also slammed Olsen for minimizing his role in pursuing seniors housing in Lumby. “To say I didn’t have anything to do with the Monashee Mews, obviously you haven’t been in government,” said Foster. He also stated that his office helps constituents on a daily basis with concerns. “A big part of what we do, nobody sees.” Another issue that arose during the forum hosted by the Lumby Chamber of Commerce was meat processing rules and the impact on farmers. “I favour issuing licenses to mobile slaughter units so they can also be the inspectors and meet the federal standards,” said Anderson. Foster says the initial rules weren’t well thought out, but the government has initiated a pilot program with five farm gate licenses. “If things go as planned, we will be able to expand on that,” he said. Olsen questioned why the meat processing rules were ever initiated. “There were no health concerns. When you hear of outbreaks, they are from major processors and not from farm gate sales,” he said. Zepik supports farm gate sales and investigating other methods to support agriculture. “We need to find a way for the province to encourage farmers markets,” he said. The candidates were also asked about increasing access to timber for small mills. Foster says steps have already been taken by approving a community forest for Lumby. “The wood will be made available to the small operators,” he said. Anderson stated that access should be improved but there are two sides to community forests. “I have to look more deeply into it,” he said. Olsen says the NDP’s forestry plan include reforestation, training and seeking new markets. “We need to work with all of the stakeholders.” Zepik also pushed for an expanded forest sector. “Small operators have more people employed because the large operator has more technology,” he said. Rebecca Helps, from the Green Party, did not attend the forum.

Lake Country creates tourism development group Morning Star Staff

Tourism is a priority in Lake Country. Council has adopted a bylaw that creates a

tourism development commission, which will co-ordinate the operation of tourism visitor services and advise

council on issues relating to local tourism. “There is a group of local tourism operators that are very keen to

develop and implement a tourism strategy in the community,” said Ryan Roycroft, economic development manager.

“This is an opportunity for local tourism stakeholders to become involved in the decision-making process in

a meaningful way, and to determine where the visitors information centre operates this summer and into the

The commission will have between 10 and 12 members. There will be at least five representatives of the community with an interest or experience in tourism, two members of council, one member of the chamber of commerce, one member of the economic planning and development committee, and one member of the Okanagan Indian Band, plus one representative from Tourism Kelowna as a non-voting member. Applications for voluntary participation on the commission are being accepted by the district until May 15. “The commission will hold an annual meeting where groups or individuals with ideas or concerns regarding local tourism promotion, development and enhancement are invited to present comments,” said Roycroft.

Morris joins Cotter for Pre-Trial push

Canadian Curling aSSoCiation

John Morris, formerly of Kevin Martin’s Edmonton rink, will join Vernon’s Jim Cotter for the coming season.

Off-season free agent signings aren’t exactly a hot topic in curling, but the move Jim Cotter just made qualifies as a blockbuster. In reality, the Vernon skip didn’t do anything but answer the phone. On the other end was 2010 Olympic gold medallist John Morris asking to join the team. Morris, who played the past seven seasons with Edmonton’s Kevin Martin, will join the Cotter rink – third Jason Gunnlaugson, second Ty Griffith and lead Rick Sawatsky – at the Capital One Road to the Roar Pre-Trials competition in November in Kitchener, Ont. “When a guy of John’s calibre calls you out of the blue, you’re definitely interested in what he has to say,” said Cotter. “John is someone who I’ve always highly respected on and off the ice. John is one of the best players in the world and surely would be accepted by any team he approached. “Just based on his attitude and passion

that he brings to the game and the fact that he is already good friends with several of our team members, it was an easy choice to make to join forces.” Morris will slot in at third and call the game on a five-man rotation, leaving Cotter to throw skip’s stones. The early part of next season will be devoted to finding the best lineup to use in Kitchener. “We will simply try out some front-end combinations early in the season at our first few bonspiels and whoever is rising to the occasion and playing the best will earn their spot,” said Morris. “All five members understand this situation and have embraced the challenge.” Cotter described the Martin team as “one of the most successful teams in the history of the game,” but said he broached the idea of including Morris with his rink before making it official. “We all quickly agreed that the addition of John’s experience and ability would substantially improve our team and take

us to a new level,” said Cotter. “We all recognize how much John has sacrificed; it’s no secret. With that said, it has motivated us even more; it’s not every day an opportunity like this presents itself. We are ecstatic right now and are already looking forward to stepping on the ice again next season.” The team will get together for meetings in May and begin dry-land training soon afterward. The team will continue to play out of the Okanagan but will hold high-performance training camps at the National Training Centre at the Glencoe Club in Calgary. The format for the Pre-Trials will see teams play a modified triple-knockout draw leading to a four-team playoff. One playoff qualifier will come out of the A-event, one from the B-event and two from the C-event. The A- and B-event qualifiers will meet in the playoffs, with the winner advancing to the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings.

CANADA’S LONGEST LASTING TRUCKS

The Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels FC grounded North Enderby Timber 2-0 in a fiercely fought North Okanagan Soccer League match Wednesday night at Marshall Field #5. With some clutch returnees playing their first games of the season, the Camels found it tough to get organized for much of the first half. Their defence thwarted some serious attempts at goal with keeper Bryn Knauf easily controlling any of the longer-range efforts.

Against the run of play, a handball in the penalty area provided the Camels with a break. Enzo Paal coolly slotted it home to provide the lead. NET pressed hard for the equalizer and almost got it when Evan Moore careened a blast off the crossbar just before half. In the second half, the Humpbacks started to gain more control and spent considerable spells in the NET half. Both teams traded corners and with about 15 minutes remaining, Nathan Whitling sent a

scorcher in for the onrushing Fabrice N’Dri to smash in with his head as the NET defence stood watching. In other action, Monashee Surveying FC toppled Peters Tirecraft 3-0 at Marshall #1. Monashee spent the whole game inside the Tirecraft half. Once again, Brett Korberg created numerous scoring chances with headers, volleys and fancy flicks until he finally buried one. Mexican wonder kid Alberto Lopez got great service from Rodney Goodchild

and delivered a sweet diving header to make it 2-0 just before the break. After a handful of chances by Monashee, Devon Marriott stuck one that bounced off a defender to finish off the Monashee scoring. Ryan Sharp held the shutout, while Darren Nobrega ran miles up the wing from defence. Salmon Arm Courvas blanked Turn-Key Controls of Vernon 5-0 at Marshall #2, while Eagle Homes Nation of Domination iced Vernon Riot FC 2-0 in Salmon Arm.

Clippers chasing down Western playoff berth Black Press Sports

The host Nanaimo Clippers went into the Western Canada Cup planning to treat every game like a must-win. The tournament reached that stage for real Thursday night as they faced Manitoba’s 0-3 Steinbach Pistons. The winner keeps playing; the loser is out of the Junior A hockey showdown. “We’ve proven that we can play with other teams; we’ve proven that we’re capable of winning,” said Clipper coach Mike Vandekamp. “So we just have to get back to that.” He said the Clippers (1-2) would try to fix the things they

did wrong in a 4-0 loss Tuesday night to the Surrey Eagles. Vandekamp wanted a more effective dump-and-chase. “The best part of the game was the anthem,” said Vandekamp. Drew Best (2), ex-Viper Adam Tambellini and Michael Stenerson scored for the BCHL champion Eagles before 1,135. Meanwhile, Lumby’s Jagger Williamson was taken in round six, 122nd, by the Seattle Thunderbirds in Thursday’s WHL Bantam Draft. Williamson, a 5-foot-7, greg sakaki/BLack Press 150-pound forward, played for the Vernon Source For Source Nanaimo captain Trevor Fitzgerald (right) leans into a faceoff Renegades last season. against Drew Best of the Surrey Eagles at the Western Canada Cup.

Subway rides to U18 victory Morning Star Staff

Vernon Subway used a balanced attack in a 5-3 win over H&R Block in Under 18 girls youth soccer play Saturday at Marshall Field. H&R was shortstaffed so the teams played nine-aside for the majority of the game. Kim Wilson and Laura Hulstein turned in masterful defence for Subway, while stellar midfield play came from Isabella Winther and Jen Proce. Scoring goals for Subway were Doortje Geelkerken, Marisa Atkinson, Isabelle Weber-Concannon, Ciana Fitzpatrick and Natalie Moore. Amy Huber and Taryn Douma split the goalkeeping duties. The defensive line of Mariead Raupach, Emma Dolman and Kaylee Barss never gave up and worked hard for H&R, who reeled off three unanswered goals in the second half by the injured Kate Alexander. Damille Butler, Jenica Camalush, Corinne Lavigne and Allysa Pembleton were tireless in the midfield. In other Subway U18 girls action, the Nixon Wenger Navy Seals grounded Vernon Kia Red 6-1. The Seals struck first midway through the first half when Sequoia Moana-Korner buried the rebound after a shot from Carlee Meausette. Kia came back strong, but the Seals added to their lead when Kendall Tomiak finished another rebound off a hard shot from Kaely Johnson. Melanie Wakutz made it 3-0 for the Seals, before Kia got a goal back just before half time. Despite some great goalkeeping from Kia’s Cherish Ayers, the Seals used the wind to their advantage in the second half, getting quick goals from Meausette and Karley Geefs before Wakutz capped the scoring with a great shot from a tough angle late in the game. Lisa VanderVeLde/Morning star The Seals got an excellent defensive effort from Siobhan Tiana Dusil (right) of the Subway Green leaps past Kyla Gauthier of the Red Clancy, while an injured Aliyah Akkurt did a great job in Devils in U15 girls soccer action Saturday at Marshall Field. her first-ever game in net.

Derri Anne Cooper recorded the shutout.

Controllers double up on Rosters

The Controllers brushed back Rosters 4-2 in a battle of winless teams at Marshall #5. Krista Backer of the Controllers got her foot on a clever pass from Michelle Mercer

and quickly deposited the ball to open the scoring in the fifth minute. Backer then took a feed from Ang Durfeld and had her shot rebound to Sherri Kineshanko, who hammered it home. Midway through the first half, Rosters’ Lisa Fogel blew a penalty shot past Mickey Templeton to draw within one. On the restart, Sena Bishop’s long ball to the corner flag was gathered in by Jacquie Nuyens, who fed Emma Louie and she drove the ball under the crossbar. Templeton made a terrific save, getting a hand on the ball as it was heading top corner, to keep it 3-1 just before the half. Eighteen minutes into the second half, Becky McLennan of Rosters took a long ball, settled it and chipped it over Templeton with sweeper Brandi Hunter all over her. The Controllers put the game away when Michele Wernicke’s corner was headed on by Boston Pizza Player of the Match Felicia O’Gorman finding the foot of Backer.

The Celtics recorded a quick turnaround goal from veteran Jenn Siegmueller. Newbie Maddy Demers delivered a cross which bounced to Siegmueller, who slammed it home from close range.

Heidi Holtmann showed composure

with five minutes left, flicking a bouncing ball over a defender and volleying a leftfooter over the keeper from 20 yards.

Canadians strike Pee Wee silver Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Kal Tire Canadians bowed 4-3 to the Nanaimo Pirates in the championship game of the annual Kelowna Pee Wee Baseball Tournament last weekend. The C’s outhit Nanaimo 10-6, with Caden Bracken working 4 1/3 solid innings on the mound. Vernon took an early lead in the first inning and added two more in the sixth when Caden Doyle hammered one over the right-centre field fence, bringing home Colton SchaperKotter, who struck a lead-off double. The Canadians stranded a pair of runners in the seventh inning. Schaper-Kotter, a catcher, went 11-for12 at the plate and was named a tournament all-star. The Kal Tire crew opened the tourney by slamming the Rutland Rockies 12-3 on 14 hits. Schaper-Kotter got torched for two runs on five hits in the first 2 2/3 innings. Carter Morris, Nick Cherkowski and Isaac Olson settled things down over the next 4 1/3 innings, allowing one run on two hits before Doyle came in for the save. Game MVP Doyle went 3-for-4 with three RBI, and Zach Orchard, SchaperKotter and Olson each had two hits. Jaden Parsons, Jarod Leroux and Cherkowski chipped in with singles, as did rookies Chase Batchelor and Carter Morris, who collected their first hits of

the season. The Canadians followed that up with a 11-8 loss to the Chilliwack Reds. Game MVP Schaper-Kotter, Orchard and Cherkowski led Vernon with two hits apiece, and Parsons cracked a double. Orchard was stellar on the mound as the C’s gunned down the Delta Dodgers 14-2. Parsons earned MVP honours for going 3-for-3, while Bracken, Leroux, Schaper-Kotter and Olson each stroking a pair of hits. Vernon advanced to the final with a 13-7 pummelling of the Kelowna Ramblers. Orchard, Olson and Doyle shared pitching duties, allowing nine hits to Vernon’s 15. Schaper-Kotter and Doyle each went 3-for-3, while Leroux and Parsons each supplied two hits. In Bantam action, the Coldstone Creamery Canadians split their doubleheader with Kamloops, taking the first leg 14-3 before falling 13-10 Sunday. The first game saw strong bats by Vernon’s Jacob Soucy, Ethan Huizinga and Tony Campen, while Soucy and Ethan Sawka shared pitching duties. Smart base running by Riley Preston, Noah Foufoulas, Huizinga and call-up Kalvin Blaeser added to the offence.

Preston and Huizinga each racked up a couple of RBI in the second tilt, and Isaac Waldermaras showed tenacity at the plate and Sawka hit a sac fly to bring home Anthony Prince. Defensive playmaking by Foufoulas, at second, and Huizinga, at first, supported starting pitcher Hayden Vardon. Blaeser showed hustle at short stop. Greg Geistlinger, Vardon and Huizinga each took a turn on the mound. The Coldstone Creamery Lightning buzzed the Coldstone Creamery Grizzly Bears 13-12 in Tadpole season-opening play Wednesday night at Armoury Park. The Bears took an early lead on a great hit by Kolby English, but the Lightning came back in the second inning with a hit by Matthew Kuhnlein to take the lead and the Grizz just couldn’t recover.

B.C.’s anti-gang police unit is taking a step out of the shadows and into the spotlight. The Combined Forces Sp e cia l Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) is the integrated team of 400 officers and civilians from 14 different agencies, including RCMP and municipal police forces, that disrupt and suppress organized crime around the province. Their investigations have cracked big cases, such as the discovery of an audacious cross-border drugsmuggling tunnel in Aldergrove and the unraveling of a massive international moneylaundering ring. The CFSEU is now out to capture a bigger public profile with the publication of its first-ever Community

found the vast majority of gang-related murder victims over a four-year period had previous drug charges or convictions, and often violent criminal pasts. Most were gang members, not just associates or minor players in the drug trade, and a few were girlfriends or an innocent victim, like a man who was shot in Burnaby after picking up a Bacon brother vehicle to install a car stereo in it. B.C. gang-related killings peaked at 36 in 2009 before dropping to 18 last year. Victims are overwhelmingly men and their average age is 30, according to CFSEU stats. Three-quarters of bodies are found near the victims’ homes or vehicles. Most (85 per cent) were shot, but eight per cent were viciously beaten, six per cent were stabbed and one victim was burned to death. Also included are key risk factors for ending up in a gang and tips for parents on spotting potential signs of gang involvement. Carrying multiple cellphones, having unexplained cash and making frequent brief trips out of the home are among the red flags. The report details how police try to keep gangsters out of bars and restaurants to keep them from recruiting new blood, as well as to prevent gang violence. This month the CFSEU said it will publicly identify suspected gangsters where possible as a new tactic to make it more difficult for organized crime to operate. After a gang-related shooting outside a gym in South Surrey, senior officers are also pledging backup for businesses that make gangsters feel unwelcome in their premises.

SPCA seeking public input Morning Star Staff

The B.C. SPCA is seeking public input about important animal issues facing communities as it begins a strategic planning process to guide its programs and services from 2014 to 2018. “We were able to accomplish incredible steps forward for animals in our province during the last five-year strategic plan and we’re very excited about building on this success,” said Craig Daniell, chief executive officer. “As we move forward, it is very important that we hear from our supporters, our staff and volunteers, community leaders, veterinarians and members of the public about their priorities for animals in our province.” Daniell says the overwhelming number of animal issues in B.C. creates a challenge for the SPCA as it decides how best to use its resources to create more humane communities across the province. “We are incredibly

Surf skis make a splash into Okanagan Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan residents can test the waters of Okanagan Lake during a special

surf ski demonstration day Saturday. Surf skis are a kayaklike watercraft, ideal for paddling on lakes and

oceans. The-light weight structure allows for effortless paddling. “Historically the surf skis have been known

to be super tippy and only experienced paddlers could manage them,” said Bob Putnam, owner and operator of Deep Cove Canoe and Kayak Centre in North Vancouver. “But the manufacturers have modified the designs and come out with a line of easy to use surf skis.” Deep Cove will host the demo at Paddlewheel Park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. so residents with some paddling experience can try a surf ski for free. There will also be a forward stroke clinic from 10 a.m. to noon to teach people the proper technique for efficient paddling. Dion Maxwell, a former member of the U.S. national sprint kayak team, will be instructing the course geared

towards kayakers, and surf ski paddlers who have some experience and want to refine their skill. The cost for the clinic is $20, with surf ski rentals available for $10. Then an introduction to surf skis will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. for those wanting to learn the ins and outs of surf ski paddling. This course is open to all abilities for $30, which includes surf ski rental and drysuit if necessary. Compared to standard sea kayaks, which weigh about 50 to 60 pounds, surf skis are only 25 to 35 pounds. “They initially became popular in South Africa and Australia for use by surf lifeguards,” said Putnam. “In Vancouver, surf skis have become very popular.”

The Big Wedding

lejandro (Ben Barnes) and Missy (Amanda Seyfried) are about to be married. When Alejandro learns that his strictly Catholic biological mother is travelling from Columbia to attend the wedding, he asks his adoptive parents, Don and Ellie (Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton), to pretend they aren’t divorced. Problems arise when an ensemble cast of family members has to be in on the ruse. Don’s current girlfriend, Bebe (Susan Sarandon), caters to more than the wedding. Don and Ellie’s other children bring with them their own quirks: Lyla (Katherine Heigl), a partner in a law firm, and Jared (Topher Grace), a doctor. Will their sordid web of deceit sort itself

Confidence is nothing to sneeze at.

HOWE: Yes we have, but this time we should have used capital letters. The Big Wedding is an utter waste of money, time and the amazing talent that is on offer. We have seen this concept before in The Birdcage and that was a far better movie. We all know families have their fair share of problems, but this is just ridiculous.

Sometimes the script, characters or actors can make this type of film succeed, such as with Birdcage. More often than not, the film fails because I fail to see the humour in what amounts to unwarranted shenanigans that only serve the plot. (In other words, take away the lie and we have no

movie.) Unlike This is 40, The Big Wedding has but one flimsy secret to keep and a stellar cast to keep it, yet still fails, because it’s thinner than grandma’s underpants. HOWE: I laughed once, at about five minutes before the end. That’s a long time to wait. Did they really think they were onto

a winner with this storyline: A former alcoholic living with his ex-wife’s best friend, Bebe. Lyla, the oldest daughter (who is in an abusive relationship), finds out she’s pregnant, returns to her boyfriend and everything’s hunky dory. Jared, the 30-year-old virgin, saving himself for a special woman in his life, meets his new sister in-law and all he wants to do is get her in the sack. TAYLOR: It was very blue comedy for a plot based on religious concerns. Rest assured, in the end all problems are addressed by way of honest conversations that prove everyone has only been lying to keep up appearances. (Thank goodness.) If only they could have figured that out before getting themselves in trouble. Then we wouldn’t have to sit through yet another troop of monkeys throwing feces at each other. HOWE: I am close to saying I would have rather watched Scary Movie 5 again and that’s saying a lot. — Howe gives The Big Wedding 1 Hail Mary out of 5. — Taylor gives it 1.5 DVD clearance bins out of 5. The film is currently showing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Courtyard opens in Enderby

More than 300 people from Enderby, Salmon Arm, Lumby, Armstrong and Vernon joined in celebration as Enderby’s newest arts space, the Courtyard Gallery, opened its “gates” April 25. The celebration, in correlation with Arts and Culture Week in B.C., saw Enderby Mayor Howard Cyr cut the ribbon, while patrons enjoyed refreshments and listened to music played by

harpist Julia Armstrong. “The comments were very supportive and artwork was sold on opening night as well as on subsequent days. This was a grand celebration of B.C. Arts and Culture Week in Enderby,” said artist Tatianna O’Donnell. The cooperative art gallery is located at 907 Belvedere St. Hours of operation are Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The new new wave

depeche Mode: Delta Machine

T

he 13th album with 13 songs – the lords of the lugubrious are back with synth-rock that Lord Byron and the Brontë sisters would crave. Too bad there were no megawatt sound systems pumping the decibels across the moors in 1820… Depeche Mode doesn’t break any new ground on Delta Machine:  electronic splats and digital explosions and the usual dark undertow dominate.  Dave Gahan’s voice holds it all together throughout the thrumming electronics, and his been-there-and-back vocal is one of the most recognizable from the post-1980 school of British synth-pop.  But bleak lamenting in full frontal view can be hypnotic and appealing.  The Depeche are broodingly creative as they temper their serious songs with jaunty ideas and the warm vocals of Gahan and guitarist/keyboardist Martin Gore.  Gore’s background vocals bring a clean texture to the band’s wall of electro-sound (Alone, Soothe My Soul). Depeche Mode knows how to jar and opiate the senses. The robotic riffs of My Little

Street SoundS

Dean Gordon-Smith

Universe are an exercise in detachment and the song makes no sense until it’s finished.

Angst is milked for all its worth. Heaven is an attractive enticement to the band’s electronic maelstrom. Gahan’s voice holds a beckoning proclamation:  “I will scream the word/Jump into the void/I will guide the herd /Up to Heaven.”  Ah well, just another walk along the edge. Soft Touch is a revisit to a classic edgy sound.  The track’s pound-

ing post-punk electro beat boosts a ringing Merseybeat hook and endearingly desperate vocals from Gahan and Gore. Depeche Mode demonstrates their uncanny will over the machines and push hard-driving ideas and dark lyrics over a moody album that swaggers through the high decibel noise generators.

An early error

D

ear Annie: Recently, my wife and I stayed for four days at the home of one of her school chums. The gals yakked until late at night, so I was the first one up every morning. I’m an early riser anyway. I like reading the newspaper with my breakfast, so when I’d get up, I’d go outside and pick up the paper and bring it in. My wife says it was wrong to get the paper before our hostess. Anyway, after a couple of days, the school friend seemed in a snit about something, and my wife says that was the reason, even though she never said so when I asked whether something was bothering her. Kathy mitchell & marcy sugar Recently, we were invited to stay with different friends for a weekend, and I am getting no end of hassle from my wife to make sure I wait for our hosts to finish with the paper. I figure I’ll just go out for coffee somewhere and buy a paper. My wife says it would be rude to take off at breakfast. Is this idiotic or what? — California Dear California: It would be rude to read the paper in such a way that your hosts must wait for you to finish, or that you drag sections of it all over the house and fill in all the clues to the crossword puzzle. But there is nothing wrong with reading the paper early, putting it back together nicely and having it available to your hosts when they awaken. You can resolve this simply enough. When you arrive, inform your hosts that you are an early riser, and ask whether they would mind if you fetch their paper and read it with your coffee, promising to keep it in pristine condition for when they are ready to read it. You also could offer to go to the local coffee shop and bring back coffee and muffins (and a newspaper) for everyone else. Dear Annie: My daughter, my 8-year-old granddaughter and I recently went to a Broadway show. After we were seated, a woman, her young daughter and her mother sat next to us. The woman was rather large, but instead of taking the aisle seat, she gave that to her mother and sat next to me. She was practically sitting on top of the chair arms due to her size and was taking up part of my space. At the end of the show, she told us we would need to climb over her because her knees hurt and she couldn’t move yet. I’m sure her knee problems are due to her size. This woman looked to be in her mid-30s. At this rate, she might not live long enough to see her daughter reach adulthood. Don’t you think she should have taken the aisle seat? — Loved the Show, Disliked the Seat Dear Loved: It seems logical that the person with the most difficulty moving would prefer the aisle seat, but perhaps the woman’s mother insisted on taking it. When stuck in these situations, there isn’t much you can do other than show tolerance for two hours.

Craig Schelter with Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. releases 1,000 rainbow trout into Polson Pond Wednesday, in preparation for the Kalamalka Fly Fishers’ annual Polson Pond Fish Out , a free fishing event for kids ages four to 14 taking place Saturday and Sunday.

Fishing fun begins for kids Morning Star Staff

It’s that time of year when the Kalamalka Fly Fishers invites kids to bring their fishing rod to Polson Pond to catch a rainbow trout for dinner. The 12th annual Polson Pond Fish Out takes place Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. “This is a free fishing event and is

open to kids ages four to 14,” said Perry Wainwright, president of the Kalamalka Fly Fishers, adding that an adult must accompany children who are under the age of 12. The main pond at Polson Park has been cleaned and 1,000 rainbow trout have been put into the water for kids to catch. Each trout weighs about 3/4 of a pound

and is 12 to 16 inches long. “And you can keep two fish each day to take home for dinner,” said Wainwright. Bring your fishing rod, bobbers, barbless hooks and worms. The club will have a fish cleaning station set up to clean fish for the kids. As well, free pictures of the kids with their fish will be taken and printed on site for them to take home.

comfortable and supportive accommodation for patients and family members (escorts) who have to travel away from home to undergo cancer treatment. This year’s event is a two-day road tour that travels through a variety of Okanagan communities, with stops along the way. On Saturday the tour stops at the 7-Eleven parking lot in Armstrong and at the Jammery parking lot in Lake Country. Sunday stops include Lordco in Westbank, 2484 Main St., for a “mini” show and shine. The Ladies Auxiliary of the Westbank Legion will have pancakes for hungry drivers and spectators, within walking distance from the Lordco car park. From there, it’s a stop at A&W in

Peachland for a special sock hop theme, before heading off to the Kettle Valley Steam Train station in Summerland for the final mini show on Sunday. Vehicles will be show standard and will be attending from different areas of Western Canada. Registration is only $50 for your classic vehicle to join in the fun and raise funds for a good cause. You can get your registrations online now at www.wheelsforacure.ca. And finally, on Saturday, a dinner and dance will be held at the Rutland Centennial Hall featuring Okanagan band The Goods. Tickets for the dinner and dance are $35 each or $60 per couple, also available to purchase on the website.

Wheels for a Cure rolls into town Morning Star Staff

If you’re the owner of a classic vehicle, the Wheels for a Cure Society invites you to join the fun for a good cause. Wheels for a Cure is a non-profit organization that is preparing for its Third Annual Event this weekend. The purpose of the weekend event is to promote awareness of and raise funds for prostate cancer research, information, support and financial assistance as well as the Southern Interior Rotary Lodge beside Kelowna General Hospital.

B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark and NDP leader Adrian Dix debate on TV Monday evening.

We are seeking individuals to join our volunteer Board of Directors who have experience serving on a board, can commit an average of ten hours per month and have a passion for community engagement. In particular we are looking for people with expertise in accounting, human resources, and management. As we are a Policy Governance board, knowledge and experience in this system of governance would be an asset.

Leaders tackle economic issues Tom fleTcher Black Press

B.C.’s four major party leaders made their pitch for voter support in a 90-minute TV debate Monday evening, with economic and resource issues dominating. B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark pressed her attack on Adrian Dix, the front-running leader of the NDP, accusing him of advocating big spending on government programs and restrictive environmental views that deter industrial development. “The NDP plan would rob Peter to pay Paul, hoping Paul will vote NDP,” Clark said. “My plan is to put both Peter and Paul to work.” Dix referred to B.C.’s ninth-place position in provincial job growth so far this year. “Neither Peter nor Paul are working,” he said. Both Dix and Clark pressed B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins on his rosy revenue forecasts, despite a promise to phase out the carbon tax on fossil fuels that would cost the provincial treasury more than $1 billion a year. Cummins responded to Clark’s jab about him being forced to fire four of his candidates for various indiscretions. One of them was accused of impaired driving, Cummins said, adding that one B.C. Liberal candidate is seeking re-election after being convicted of the same offence.

Green Party leader Jane Sterk was on the defensive about her long list of promises, including a guaranteed annual income to replace existing social programs, and extensive social programs for rural areas. Asked about her proposal to immediately raise the carbon tax by 66 per cent, Sterk

described it as a “gradual increase.” As they have in the first two weeks of the campaign for the May 14 B.C. election, Clark and Dix clashed over oil and gas development. Dix denied there was a plan to impose a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing, saying Cariboo-Chilcotin

NDP candidate Charlie Wyse was wrong in referring to one last week. Clark stuck to her five conditions for approving new heavy oil pipelines, refusing to endorse or oppose either proposal to bring more Alberta oil to the West Coast. She pressed Dix on his sud-

den reversal to oppose an expansion of the 60-year-old pipeline to Burnaby, which has seen increased demand for crude exports.

Bridge by Phillip Alder

GO FOR THE CHANCE THAT YOU HAVE Aristotle said, “All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.” At the bridge table, you desire to make or break the contract, using reasoning and various habits -- hopefully all good. And sometimes you have to go for any chance that you have. In this deal, West has to decide what to do when defending against one notrump. He leads his fourthhighest diamond. South takes East’s nine with his king and plays the spade queen. West ducks, but is in with his ace at trick three. What should West do now? An aggressive East

would have made a threeclub weak jump overcall on the first round. Then South would probably have made a negative double, giving North a headache. The winning action would have been to pass, which would have netted 100 or 300. If East had balanced over one no-trump with a two-club bid, South would presumably have continued with two spades, which would have probably ended down one after the diamond-nine lead from East. Who has the diamond jack? It must be South -- do not be fooled by his falsecard at trick one. East was playing third hand high and the best he could do was the nine. Similarly, South has the

diamond ace, giving South 10 high-card points. So, if West leads another diamond, South must take at least nine tricks. The only chance for the defense is to run the clubs. West must shift to his club king and continue with his second club. Here, East and West take one spade and six clubs for down one.

Hi! My name is Trooper and I am a handsome one-year-old neutered male Pug cross, and boy, do I have a story. I was hit by a car in January; some Good Samaritans came to my rescue and brought me to the Vernon Veterinary Clinic. I had a broken leg and am doing much better now. The Good Samaritans fostered me for a while but now I am back at the clinic looking for a permanent home.
