Report indicates economic slowdown in Vernon Vernon’s economy appears to be receding in comparison to other B.C. communities. A new Conference Board of Canada report looks at how mid-sized cities across the country are recovering from the recession, and it indicates that Vernon’s economy has contracted for Rob Sawatzky five consecutive years. “It’s consistent with the feeling many people have in the community,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. “It’s not what any of us want to hear and we need to work hard to make ourselves attractive to business.” According to the Conference Board of Canada, Vernon’s total gross domestic product went from $2.1 million in 2005 to $1.5 million

in 2012. It also states Vernon’s total jobs declined from 31,300 in 2005 to 19,000 in 2012. In comparison, the report says Prince George’s economy has grown by five per cent a year since 2010, while GDP has jumped an average of 6.2 per cent in Chilliwack. Kamloops has experienced employment growth as has Courtenay and Nanaimo. Kevin Poole, Vernon’s economic development manager, questions the federal and provincial statistics the Conference Board has used, saying that the sample size for Vernon is fairly small. “One of the key challenges we’ve had is that the survey size for the Canadian Labour Force Survey in our area is too small and has skewed our numbers to the point where in my opinion they are not usable.” He also questions B.C. Stats labour force data. “This states that almost 40 per cent of our

population over 15 has left during this same period. The data set is statistically impossible as it means we had minus 5,621 people under 15 years of age in 2007 and now have over 20,834 under 15 in order for it to correspond with the population projections.” He also wonders if the report factors activity in Spallumcheen and Lumby. “If you look at the industrial base, it’s in those communities.” But Poole says the report is worth considering and alternatives for stimulating the economy must be considered given that Vernon is not dependent on natural resources like Prince George and Kamloops. “There is an opportunity around technology and health and wellness because we’re a lifestyle community,” he said. “We also want to support the manufacturing that is already here.” Sawatzky says there is a need to provide the recreational and social amenities new resi-

dents and investors want. “Does your community have parks and hospitals that make the community attractive,” he said. “We have fallen behind other communities. We don’t have a twin-sheet arena and a track (there should be one by 2014).” Sawatzky says that other focuses for investors are transportation networks, like airports, post-secondary education and Internet access. In terms of taxes, Sawatzky says Vernon is competitive with other B.C. cities. “We can’t give tax holidays as they can in the U.S. and that has caused all kinds of headaches in the U.S. (municipal bankruptcies).” George Duffy, Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce manager, is not pleased with the results of the Conference Board report. “It’s one of the reasons we’ve been advocating for the city to take on economic development,” he said. “We’ve also initiated relocation packages to help attract business here.”

While the North Okanagan was contending with frigid temperatures just a week ago, summer appears to be here now. Environment Canada is forecasting a high of 30 in Vernon today, 29 Thursday, 30 Friday and 29 Saturday. “There’s a huge upper high over the Pacific and it’s been drifting east,” said Greg Pearce, a forecaster technologist with Environment Canada, The high Monday was 29.8, while the maximum high is normally 18 at this time of the year. “For Vernon, it was close but there was no record,” said Pearce. The current record for May 6 in Vernon is 30.5 in 1992. A high of 30 was forecast for Tuesday. The sudden temperature spike is a dramatic departure from April 29 when it was about 3 that evening and it was hailing or snowing in some areas. “It’s spring and it’s a time of big contrasts,” said Pearce of weather conditions. Pearce isn’t sure how long the hot weather will stick around. “Enjoy it while you can. Heat waves can come in May,” he said. It could possibly be 23 May 13, according to Environment Canada. Because of the sudden hot weather, emergency preparedness officials are warning that medium and high-elevation snow could begin to melt quickly and that could lead to flooding along local creeks, rivers and lakes. “If your property is prone to flooding, take the necessary measures now to protect structures, equipment and materials,” said Cliff Doherty, with the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District. “Residents are responsible for having a personal plan, as well as the tools and equipment necessary to protect their homes and properties, with sandbagging as only one example.” Similar warnings have also come from North Okanagan Emergency Management and the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

Molotov cocktail tossed at school roger knox

Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP are investigating another Molotov cocktail incident, this one at a local elementary school. Police received a call Friday about an attempted arson or, at the very least, mischief, to Silver Star Elementary School the night before. “It appears a Molotov cocktail was thrown against the building and there was a small burn as a result,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson

“We are appealing to the public for help.” — Gord Molendyk

Gord Molendyk. “The evidence was still there, a broken bottle with a rag close to the building.” It is the second time in two weeks that there has been a Molotov cocktail thrown against the school though Molendyk did not have

a date of the first incident. On April 28, a woman walking a dog in a Coldstream orchard shortly before 6 a.m. returned to her parked vehicle near Cunliffe Road and Lochhaven Drive to find her station wagon damaged

from what appeared to be a Molotov cocktail. Police found a glass bottle with a lingering odour of gas at the scene. It had been thrown against the station wagon’s windshield on the driver’s side. The car suffered damage as a result of the incident. “We don’t know if we have some individual in our community that has, for whatever reason, taken a liking to throwing Molotov cocktails,” said Molendyk. “We are appealing to

Trailer located in Spallumcheen Morning Star Staff

Several people are facing charges in connection with the discovery of a stolen tractor-trailer unit found in Spallumcheen. Police were told last week that a unit used to make deliveries from Alberta through to the Lower Mainland was missing and that it’s last known location was in the North Okanagan. One of the trailers was found in a parking lot on Hullcar Road and Deep Creek Road with its cargo missing. The International-model truck was later found on a rural property in the Hullcar Road area, along with the missing second trailer. “Police received a search warrant and were able to recover the International truck, worth approximately $30,000, along with the second trailer valued at $6,500,” said North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

Lab case closed roger knox Morning Star Staff

No charges are likely to be laid in connection with the discovery of a potential drug lab in a downtown Vernon hotel. RCMP were called to the Kalamalka Hotel May 1 after being notified by hotel staff that drug activity may have occurred in a room. “The suite had not been occupied for more than a week,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. The previous tenant, who is in jail on unrelated matters, has been interviewed by police officers. Molendyk said it was a small quantity of drugs that were found in the room. Molendyk says it’s unlikely that charges in the matter are forthcoming.

“These two cases now appear to be connected.” — Gord Molendyk

“As well as the cargo that was in the trailers valued at $30.000.” The cargo – mainly furniture – had been moved into a shed. The total recovery is just under $70,000 in property. The police are still continuing with this investigation, including the discovery of a link between this case and a robbery at the Enderby Shell gas station April 28. “Those two cases now appear to be connected,” said Molendyk.

Knee Arthritis and Knee Injuries Successfully Treated by Shockwave Therapy

W

hether you are an athlete, in your golden years of retirement, or the typical person on your feet all day at work, you know there’s nothing more debilitating than a knee injury. Knee injuries have many faces and causes and these three groups of people are susceptible to the same injuries but from different causes. Tendon injuries are the most common: Iliotibial band syndrome (pain on the outside of the knee); Patellar tendonitis (pain below the knee); and hamstring injuries (leading to pain in the back of the knee). As well, arthritis plagues many and often results in knee replacement surgery. And unfortunately, many knee surgery patients (due to ligament or cartilage tears) frequent our office.

tendon, binding the knee and often creating soft tissue pain. For the past four years I have been using Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) to treat these conditions, because shockwave therapy breaks down scar tissue and stimulates blood vessel growth to restore muscle function and promote healing. The Journal of Surgical Research 2012 showed ESWT is effective in preventing knee arthritis. In The American Journal Of Sports Medicine 2007, 90% showed significant improvement in patellar tendonitis. Furthermore, The Archives of Orthopedic Trauma Surgery 2007 showed significant reduction in the progression of knee arthritis (ESWT stimulates cells to produce cartilage). Results are often experienced within a couple of visits and the treatment is covered by many insurance companies.

DR. RYAN HARRIS Glenmore Chiropractic

Each of these injuries comes with its own set of obstacles when treating with conventional methods: tendonitis can create fibrous adhesions and scar tissue that disrupts the normal function of the muscle; arthritis erodes the cartilage, decreasing the joint space; and surgery, although often necessary, creates scar tissue on the surrounding muscle and

Drawing the lines

rmil Santick thought he was ready for the provincial election. He had been following coverage in The Morning Star and was familiar with the candidates in Vernon-Monashee. However, everything was turned on end when he received his voter’s registration card and it identified him as living in the Shuswap constituency, not VernonMonashee. He was shocked and less than amused. “I do everything in Vernon and I have a Vernon address,” said Santick who lives in an adult community on the Okanagan Indian Reserve, along Westside Road. “I don’t know anyone in the Shuswap. I don’t know any of the candidates.” Unable to get a hold of Elections B.C., he Richard Rolke contacted The Morning Star to find out if there had been a sudden switch in constituencies. An investigation of Elections B.C.’s website and a discussion with officials, however, indicates 2008 was the last time provincial constituency boundaries changed. The new lines on a map came into effect in the 2009 election. “The boundaries have not changed since the last election,” said Linda Rivard, Shuswap deputy district electoral officer. Based on that, the area is part of the Shuswap constituency, which includes Falkland, Armstrong, Enderby, Salmon Arm, Sicamous and the North Shuswap. Constituencies are amended occasionally to reflect demographics and in 2008, the B.C. Electoral Boundaries Commission found it necessary to tinker with things in the Okanagan Valley because of the region’s growing population. The goal is to try and have one elected representative for a specific number of residents. It becomes a balancing act, particu-

larly when social and economic links between communities are taken into consideration. As we saw recently, a federal attempt to move Falkland in with Kelowna and Penticton would have been a fiasco when residents there have a long-standing bond with Vernon and Armstrong. However, on the surface, one can see why the B.C. Electoral Boundaries Commission put the reserve in the Shuswap constituency as Westside Road is contiguously linked geographically to Spallumcheen, including O’Keefe Ranch, and the highway to Falkland. Now Santick points out that he has a Vernon mailing address, but Elections B.C. insists mailing addresses do not dictate what constituency you are in. Case in point are the communities of Westshores, Killiney Beach and Fintry, just to the south of the Okanagan Indian Reserve. They have Vernon mailing addresses and phone numbers but they are part of the Westside-Kelowna constituency. Elections B.C. may have followed its process to the letter, but Santick raises a legitimate concern. Given that people along Westside Road associate themselves with Vernon, they may not realize they are in the Shuswap constituency, even if that was the case in 2009. “Voting day will come and people won’t even know the candidates,” he said, adding that those individuals wanting to be his representative in Victoria may not be familiar with issues important to his community. Beyond registration cards, Elections B.C. should do more to let Westside Road residents know which constituency they are in. With just six days left before general voting day, Santick is doing his homework and trying to learn as much as he can about those who will be listed on the Shuswap ballot (there will be a poll at Desert Cove). But he is so frustrated over the boundary issue and what he considers his disenfranchisement from Vernon-Monashee, Santick admits he may have another option. “I may not vote at all,” he said.

We like to reflect in this space what people are talking about, what has them glued to their TVs, filling the Internet chat forums. The B.C. election? Puhleese. Today, it’s the Stanley Cup playoffs. Life changing? No. Important to the future of the province? No. A topic of conversation more than anything related to politics? Absolutely. At time of writing, the Vancouver Canucks were on the edge of elimination, down 3-0 to the San Jose Sharks. As usual, the Canucks had an impressive regular season, winning their division and garnering a top-three seed. Also as usual (despite a run to the Cup final a couple of years ago), the Canucks are showing they are a team built for the regular season and not what really matters, the run for the Cup. They have played nine periods of hockey against the Sharks and aside from the third period Sunday night, their goaltending has been solid. The fact much of the discussion still centres around Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider is bewildering and is a clear indication both GM Mike Gillis and head coach Alain Vigneault have done a poor job focussing on what really ails this team. The leadership group on this team, the ones that excel in the regular season, do not have what it takes mentally or physically to compete when the stakes are higher in the playoffs. Have the Sedin brothers even played the first three games? Did anyone other than Gillis think deadline acquisition Derek Roy was going to change his playoff stripes (zero goals in his last 10 playoff games)? If the Canucks were to win the next four games and take this series, we will be the first to say we are wrong. But we don’t see that happening. ---Campbell River Mirror

Skills training requires funding

am writing this letter in the middle of an election campaign where all candidates and parties are calling for increased skills training as a means to revitalize B.C.'s economy. My question is, "Who will pay?" When Christy Clark was appointed education minister in 2001, she presided over several changes to the education system which continue to have devastating effects in our classrooms. School boards have been in a struggle ever since the funding changes she introduced went into effect. School districts simply cannot provide the services that many people seem to be demanding. Locally we have seen tens of millions of dollars taken out of the annual budgets since 2001, and the most recent figure is another $2 million to be chopped for next school year. The desire to have more trades or more skills taught in the secondary schools is diametrically opposed to what is possible in schools simply because our government persistently has been underfunding for the past 12 years. For instance, woodwork, metal work, automotive and home economics classrooms were usually built for 24 students, but it is not unusual for 30 or more students to be shoehorned in. Forestry classes are almost gone from Vernon schools for similar reasons. There have been some successes with co-operation between the secondary schools and colleges but combined with declining enrolment, the ability of a school to offer exposure to training/skills programs is limited at best with-

puBliC deBt proBlem The NDP is heavily funded and supported by public service unions. Over the last decades, the growth in salaries, benefits and pensions in the public sector has surpassed, by far, the same in the private sector for equivalent positions. According to several reports, it's by 20 to 40 per cent. It can be expected that a government indebted to the union movement can be pushed to further support union demands, always with the ultimate threat of a strike in the public sector. Thus, the difference between public and private sectors will be further increased. Clearly, such a situation is not sustainable for the economy of B.C. I believe with wages and benefits at similar levels in the public and the private sector, there would be ample funds to finance most of the programs that have been cancelled the last several years. The growth in our public debt must be curtailed or stopped.

out a change in how schools are funded. If you believe increasing skills training is necessary, then someone has to pay for it. Most businesses have their own training programs for new employees, but if they are looking for 'someone' to provide a new skill set to new employees, at the current levels of funding for the public education system, don't look to school boards. What does that leave? Technical schools and colleges are also public education institutions with their own financial difficulties. The Kalamalka Forestry Centre is yet another publicly funded institution that has been whittled back to a mini-

Secondly, the voters of B.C. should not allow themselves to forget the arrogance and ignorance displayed by Adrian Dix and his then boss Glen Clark in the fast ferries scandal in the late 1990s. For political reasons, the two rejected any solid business arguments presented by the board of B.C. Ferries or any other business group as to why their ideas would not fly. As New Democrats, they knew better than the business people who had life long experiences in the industry. It is not the first time New Democrats have displayed arrogance for taxpayers. Their efforts cost B.C. taxpayers around $500 million, and the ships were finally sold for under $20 million. Google for more details. Perhaps Mr. Dix would like to enlighten the voters of this province at what time we may expect to have that amount paid off with interest. What have we seen lately to encourage us to believe that their economic development capabilities have improved? Economic develop-

ment must take place in order for this province to maintain its standard of living. Our current government is encouraging development, which must be responsible and take into account risks of any kind. The point is, though, that after doing its work, and accounting for the risks, a decision has to be made and lived with. Sometimes the decision is for development, other times it is against. The NDP it seems, has come out against almost everything proposed. It is of course easy to be against anything. You take no risks that way and you can never be wrong - although you may not have an economy left! Finally, a word for our sitting MLA. Eric Foster has worked hard for his constituents. In addition to the well known projects, Vernon Jubilee Hospital, highways etc., he has worked for, there are the 2011 Masters World Cup ski event, the Upper Room Mission kitchen expansion, grant-

mum of what it could be. In my opinion, we in B.C. need to get out of the negative climate created by the neo-liberals constantly saying that reducing taxes is an effective way to stimulate the economy. Locally, we have seen the global economics come to town with the result that 300 good jobs were lost at the glass plant and a clothing manufacturing company chose to go 'offshore'. These were not flights from taxes. Thank goodness for some businesses showing corporate responsibility and staying in the area. Kal Tire, Tolko, Rogers Flour Mill and tekmar come to my mind as businesses who could easily locate elsewhere but choose to stay here. The middle class needs to have good jobs so they can spend money on real estate and vehicles etc., and that depends on reasonable pay, not on minimum wages that just perpetuate the poverty cycle. Ultimately, it has to be taxes that pay for education and training because taxes are the way to spread the load out for our society. It really comes down to business, banks and the wealthy willingly paying their fair share. You can't expect to have skilled, educated employees/ entrepreneurs and so on while cutting taxes so public educational institutions continue to be underfunded. The definition of insanity is said to be doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Please, let's stop the insanity. Bruce Cummings

ing of seed money for a new art gallery, etc. Because of his devotion to his constituents, his hard work and his knowledge of the workings of Victoria, Eric Foster deserves our support. Bjorn W. meyer polar iCe MP Mayes' misinformation about polar ice is unfortunate given the podium he is provided by your paper. Viewing the urgency implied at www.climatechangenunavut.ca, a site recommended by Nunavut's Department of Environment website, I doubt there is such complacency about climate change in Nunavut as Mr. Mayes feels. There is a neat graph on the front page of http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/ clearly refuting Mr. Mayes' claim that Arctic temperatures "have returned to normal." Antarctic ice is on an accelerating decline too, despite our MP's reassurances. A very recent study has shown exactly the opposite. russ Collins

DCT drives crime fighting Morning Star Staff

A partnership between a Vernon trucking company and the North Okanagan Shuswap Crime Stoppers Society has earned provincial recognition. DCT Chambers Trucking Ltd. was named Corporate Partner of the Year at the 2013 Crime Stoppers provincial conference in Vancouver Saturday. The Crime Stoppers’ logo and universal phone number – 1-800222-8477 – has been added to the back of 100 DCT semitrucks that travels across the province and into the northern U.S. “The idea behind this was to give more exposure to our logo and to our phone number so that if you see a crime or are the victim of crime, you’ll phone our organization,” said Roger Knox, president of the North Okanagan Shuswap Crime Stoppers Society. “Putting it on the back of a semi is great as motorists passing one of the trucks can see the logo and number. “To team up with a huge trucking firm like DCT to help spread our image and our phone number has been great. It has received a lot of positive feedback.” Dave Chambers of DCT, who accepted the honour along with his son, Ryan, Monday, said the partnership with Crime Stoppers is a great fit for the company’s longtime support of the RCMP. “We’ve been approached by forprofit and non-profit organizations before, and in all cases there was always something that inhibited the use of doing it,” said Dave Chambers. “This was universal. Crime affects every family, person and every com-

pany in every area we operate. It was a very easy one to say yes to.” Added Ryan Chambers: “The initial order was for 100 units in the Okanagan, Castlegar, Cranbrook and Lower Mainland area, and we focused on the highest utilized trailers you see on the road everyday. We’ve ordered another 100 plaques to put on another 100 units.” There were two other awards handed out to the local Crime Stoppers board. Longtime North OkanaganShuswap Crime Stoppers Society volunteer Gord Molendyk was honoured with the co-ordinator of the year award for programs with populations under 100,000. “To those of us who serve on the board, we felt it’s a long, overdue recognition for Gord,” said Knox. “Our organization would be lost without him. He is the face of our organization, he keeps things running smoothly, and is incredibly well-organized. We’re very happy for Gord.” “It’s very humbling,” said Molendyk. The final award was a 2012 Milestone Productivity award given to organizations with a population base between 20,000 and 100,000. The award is based on Crime Stoppers in the region that help police detachments seize drugs. Thanks to Crime Stoppers’ tips, North Okanagan Shuswap police were able to seize $615,000 in drugs in 2012. There are 25 Crime Stoppers organizations in B.C. Delegates from the Prairie provinces also attended the three-day Vancouver conference. Family Owned & Operated Offers valid ‘til May 14, 2013

NDP feeling confident roger knox Morning Star Staff

Like the current weather pattern, the NDP party’s future looks quite sunny, according to its caucus chairperson. Shane Simpson, two-term MLA from Vancouver-Hastings, was in Vernon Monday showing support for Vernon-Monashee riding candidate Marl Olsen and meeting with potential supporters. “Our confidence is great,” said Simpson during a brief stop at Olsen’s office in downtown Vernon. “We have a 10-point lead right now. We knew no one was winning by 20 per cent. I think we’ll finish strong. People are now focussing

on decisions they need to make. “It’s either going to be four more years or it’s going to be positive change.” Simpson said the one thing he keeps hearing in every riding he visits is that people are tired of the same old, same old and want something new. He said there is a lot of energy for change. “We’ve had 12 years of this government and it’s a government that’s run out of gas, run out of ideas and run out of energy,” said Simpson. “They have lost a lot of public confidence in their ability to provide leadership. “We’re hearing this

from people who never would have voted for us before.” Simpson had coffee with Olsen before meeting campaign workers. The pair then hit the hustings, visiting supporters and potential voters near Fulton Secondary School.

Couple gives one another free hand Shuswap artists Jen Dyck and Steve Mennie work separately and together Julie Oakes Special to The Morning Star

On the outskirts of Salmon Arm, in an adobe home with straw-bale-thick walls, a black and white jazz documentary is playing on the computer in the corner of the living room. It is the home of Jen Dyck and Steve Mennie. A jazz pianist and collage artist, Dyck is willowy and folds upon herself as she sits on the couch. Mennie is a printmaker, drawer, painter and jazz drummer with a wry wit. The couple is creativity personified. Their respective studios are in an outbuilding, separate entrances, but they share a common wall. Both studios are chock full of work, an evidence of the fertile output of each. A semi-circle of collaged pieces on the floor in Dyck’s space determine where it is that she is currently engaged on the latest collage. Built on her dreams, the work depicts interior spaces constructed of snippets from National Geographic, Life, ladies journals and whatever magazine is worthy of her cull. The collaged scenarios are peopled with characters engaged in zany situations charged with the illogical inventions and

sonal situations they act like the best comedies, employing wit, cynicism, criticism and sardonic strategy to bring the pathos of the human condition into play. Despite the utterly contemporary components, many of the collages suggest other times or places such as the Dutch interiors of Vermeer, genre paintings, stage sets, filmic concept drawings or retro fittings. The palates have a designed, premeditated determination. Mennie says his sons are coming to help him get firewood this weekend. He cuts it now, lets it dry over the summer and winter and then the next year runs a dry crackling blaze through the winter

months. Mennie’s yard is a labyrinth of river rock forming borders and walkways. There is an obsessive bent to his art work as well. Just as his gathering of wood or rock is carefully tuned through his particular process to result in a solid end, so each piece is worked, carefully. Veering between finely crafted figurative work and painterly psychological abstracts – and now and again combining the two realms – each piece is both created and conceived, a product of nature and nurture. Mennie has an able hand. His Hand Jobs, pastel and charcoal works that depict hands working at various tasks, is a testament to his own hand. The hands are far larger than life, some so large that each pore is seen. Then just as he could rest safe on his virtuosity, Mennie whirls like a dervish, about face, and the next painting is a convoluted abstract that weaves in upon itself in multiple layers of colour. Dyck and Mennie add up to a portrait of two artists as a couple. They work separately, each oeuvre different from the other, but not at odds. It’s two for one where the one is art. Both artists are showing their work in a joint exhibition at Headbones Gallery, 6700 Old Kamloops Rd. An opening reception takes place Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. The show continues to June 16. Hours are Tuesday to Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.

Community theatres enter the O-Zone

Morning Star Staff

Locals have a chance to catch a different play every night next week when community theatres from throughout the region converge in Vernon for the Theatre BC Okanagan Zone (O-Zone) Drama Festival. Hosted by Powerhouse Theatre, the festival starts Monday and continues to Saturday, May 18 with the awards ceremony. Entries include the Kamloops Players, Shuswap Theatre (Salmon Arm), Fred Skeleton Theatre Company (Kelowna), Theatre Kelowna Society, and The Hub Arts Collective (Vernon). “I would like to encourage all to register in order to attend the  festival and  attend the coffee critiques, which will be held at Powerhouse Theatre each morning from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, May 14 to Saturday, May 18,” said festival chair Penny Baynes. The festival will culminate with the awards banquet at the Schubert Centre, where acting, technical and directing awards will be handed out. The winner of best production will go

on to compete among other Theatre BC zone winners at the Mainstage Festival in Kamloops July 5 to 13. This year’s O-Zone adjudicator is Amy Baskin. Baskin trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama in the U.K. before making the leap across the pond to Kamloops. A freelance director and drama facilitator, she has served as board president for Kamloops’ Project X Theatre and has directed Munsch Ado About Nothing and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead for Project X. She was also assistant director for Western Canada Theatre Company’s Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat (2011) and Seussical the Musical (2008). Baskin co-produced the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2011 Western Canada Summer Games in Kamloops, and also directed Eight Goals for the B.C. Council for International Cooperation, which toured the province. Individual tickets for all performances will be available for purchase at the

Powerhouse Theatre box office, May 13 to 17, nightly at 6:30 p.m. Curtain time for all performances is at 7.30 p.m. (All latecomers will be seated at intermission.)

Don���t be afraid of Oleanna

A

fter the Kathleen Turner/Michael Douglas 1989 film The War of the Roses, there was another treacherous battle of the sexes, that between a teacher and his student in David Mamet’s deeply disturbing but masterful 1992 play Oleanna. Currently on stage at The Hub Arts Collective in Vernon, Oleanna treats its audience as a fly on the wall, observing the inner-workings of two people who really don’t understand each other at all. it’s while sitting there Kristin Froneman andAnd watching this communication breakdown that rivets you despite the uncomfortable subject matter: how a young woman feels driven to accuse her teacher of sexual exploitation. Unlike Roses, there are no dishes thrown here, but the words come out in a barrage of confusion, anger, and frustration. Yes, you will feel like pulling out your hair, but it’s worth the pain. The rapid-fire Mamet dialogue, where interruptions and talking over each other is prominent, is a challenge, and one that actors Chris Froese and Ashley Plomp manage to survive in all its complexities. As he did in his play-turned-film Glengarry Glen Ross, and even his film screenplays such as The Verdict, Mamet is an expert at making sadsacks seek their comeuppance with little result. However, in those projects, the protagonists were all men. Here, we have a female. And I have to say, and this is from a female perspective where we are to support our “sisters”, it made me flip-flop in both my pathos and disgust with her character. At times, I wanted to yell at her to smarten up, and other times I wanted to put my arms around her, just as her professor, John, mistakenly does. Plomp plays the student, Carol, with a palsied twitch that was rather distracting with all its herky-jerky movement, but when Mamet’s words tumbled out of her mouth with all its vitriol, especially in the last act, she mesmerized. She would be an incredible horror film actress: her evil smile alone is still etched in memory. Froese, for his part, has to deal with extremely heavy lifting. Not only does he talk half the time to unseen people that are his wife and realtor on his annoying cell phone (the only “update” made in this play), he has to restrain himself to play the pompous professor who is eventually unseated. John is a pot about to boil over, and watching Froese reach the required temperature is a painful, yet fascinating experience. He does an admirable job, and his chemistry with Plomp is palpable. It’s not pretty, or nice, but it will have you talking, and debating, for days afterwards. Directed by The Hub’s Matt Brown, with a sparse, dark, but effective set, designed by Kristine Larsen, Oleanna is Vernon’s only entry into this year’s Okanagan Zone Drama Festival, being held at the Powerhouse Theatre next week (see side story). It continues at The Hub tonight through to Saturday (tickets are at the Ticket Seller) before moving to Powerhouse Theatre on Monday.

Biologist starts a R-evolution with new documentary

Main Course

Morning Star Staff

Direct from the Toronto Film Festival, Rob Stewart follows his landmark documentary Sharkwater with R-evolution, which opens at the Vernon Towne Cinema Friday. While Stewart’s earlier film dealt with the decimation of the world’s shark population. R-evolution is an impassioned and angry, yet hopeful call to arms against the destruction of the planet’s marine life, and the resulting threat to the human race. In the film, Stewart shows how 80 per cent of life on Earth is in the ocean and how the habitats around coral reefs are quickly disappearing. Travelling the globe to monitor the efforts taken — and not taken — to stop the damage (exploring ocean depths to observe this first-hand), Stewart examines the destruction of the planet’s natural heritage. His outrage over how poorly humans treat the planet is clear. Attending another failed environmental conference, with little or no resulting action, he dismisses the proceedings as a farce, castigating governments whose token nods to environmental sustainability are wholly disingenuous. An award-winning biologist,

There’s no doubt when looking at the photographs of Ken Buck what his favourite animal happens to be. Through his family’s equine business, HorseCentred, the Armstrong-based photographer shows one of man’s best friends in all its glory from mane to tail at his first exhibition, taking place this weekend at the Pottery Road Yoga in Vernon. Buck says his passion, and perhaps one of his greatest gifts, comes from behind the lens of his cameras. Drawing on his lifelong career as a landscape architect and designer, he has honed an innate eye for “the moment,” bringing the viewer a glimpse of what he sees through his lens. His photographs are said to offer a great sense of ease and peace, through careful attention to balance and proportion; they draw the viewer from across the room with dynamic movement colour and power and “capture the soul” of his equine friends in full animation. In the exhibition,

Conservationist -filmmaker Rob Stewart speaks in Ottawa about climate change in his documentary, R-evolution, opening at the Vernon Towne Cinema with a special screening Friday. photographer, conservationist and filmmaker, born and raised in Toronto, Stewart directs a lot of his anger towards the current Canadian government, which withdrew from the Kyoto Accord and which, he argues, has broken the law with the Albertan tar sands project. Yet despite government inaction and the terrifying data on marine decline, R-evolution is infused with wonder and hope.  While seasoned activists have little to offer by way of answers,

Stewart sees an opportunity in the youth who plead with leaders to do something about climate change and the dangers facing the planet. The film opens at the Towne Cinema with a special screening on Friday at 7 p.m. Terry Dyck from SENS (Sustainable Environment Network Society) of Vernon will speak at the screening. Admission for the Friday screening is $10/adult, with $2.75 of the ticket price being donated to SENS.

Theatre celebrates signs of spring Morning Star Staff

Grindrod’s Runaway Moon Theatre continues to help people connect with nature through art with its Calendario project. The theatre’s latest event will take place in Armstrong Saturday to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day and specifically the red-winged blackbirds that have been singing in the local marshland behind Okanagan Street while they stake out the rushes that will be their home for the season. Besides the blackbirds, Runaway Moon’s Dawn Stilt Chorus will be singing, while poet Natalie Rice will read Swamp Songs, a series of poems she wrote just for this day. “If you look carefully you will find ephemeral signs created by Crossings, a collective of Okanagan artists that includes Armstrong artist Rhonda Neufeld, Joanne Salé from Vernon, Pippa Dean-Veerman from Lake Country and Portia Priegert from

Kelowna,” said Runaway Moon’s artistic director Cathi Stubington. “As you linger along Meighan Creek, you will have the opportunity to write a poem honouring the red-winged blackbirds and their neighbours.” All of this is part of Runaway Moon Theatre’s Calendario project, spearheaded by Stubington, who has been working with fellow artists and local students on combining local knowledge of nature, gardening, weather and agricultural practices into one circular calendar. “We are developing a local calendar based on the timing of events that take place around us, rather than on numerical dates,” she said. “For example, when the first daffodils bloom, it is time to pick nettles.” The public is welcome to stop by the Armstrong marsh behind Okanagan Street at Patterson Avenue across from the Valley First Credit Union. The event will start at approximately 10 a.m.

SPARC offers singing workshop with tenor The Armstrong Spallumcheen Arts Council Society (SPARC) is hosting a singing workshop with internationally renowned tenor Paul Moore. A two-time event, the workshop takes place Sunday, May 26 and June 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. in

Armstrong. “You will learn vocal techniques from a master. As well, you will have the opportunity to experience the joy of singing with others in an inspired and creative environment,” said Reg Kienast, SPARC board member.

Payment is due by May 18 ($40 for SPARC members, $50 for nonmembers) payable by cheque or money order to SPARC, 3030 Murison Pl. Armstrong, B.C. VOE 1B4. For enquiries or to book a space, e-mail sparcartscouncil@gmail. com.

Anja Rietdorf begins Anja’s Sunshine Ride this weekend from Victoria to Newfoundland, to benefit The Sunshine Foundation of Canada.

Anja hits the road for the kids Morning Star Staff

Her bike is tuned up, her camper has been stocked with healthy snacks and now all that’s left is for Anja Rietdorf to hit the road as she begins her cross-Canada ride for The Sunshine Foundation of Canada. “I am really excited, to say the least. But most of all, I am extremely grateful and very much overwhelmed by the generosity and support from everyone who helped me with the preparations in the past months,” said Rietdorf, who begins Anja’s Sunshine Ride on Sunday from Mile Zero in Victoria. The Sunshine Foundation is a nonprofit organization that makes dreams come true for children with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illness. “I chose The Sunshine Foundation because my younger brother has had developmental disabilities and epilepsy since birth and I understand the daily challenge for families. We forget them quite often because we don’t see them all the time,” said Rietdorf, who was a kindergarten teacher in her native Germany. She moved to Canada three years ago, after 14 years in the Canary Islands as a landscaper, to work as a live-in family caregiver. Rietdorf ’s fundraising began earlier this year and has included silent auctions, garage sales, lunch and dinner events at local restaurants. She has also kept busy with training, including working out at Ladies World, which provided her with a membership. “Many people came out to the silent auction at the Talkin’ Donkey, the garage sale at St. James School, lunches at Rosalinda’s Filipino Kitchen, and dinner

at Boa Thong. They had a great time and we raised a lot of money to cover the essentials for the bike ride. “I now have a truck, camper and trailer. Kelowna Cycle donated bike equipment, Lifemax special food made from chia seeds, Vernon Vintners wine to give to hosting families along my stops. Kal Tire, Naturally Yours, Wayside, Holiday Park Resort and many other businesses also made generous contributions.

“I am extremely grateful and very much overwhelmed by the generosity and support from everyone who helped me.” — Anja Rietdorf “I simply cannot begin to name them all. Without this help I would not be here today to tell you that all is ready for a most promising start.” Rietdorf will be on the road for close to 9,000 kilometres and has been selling each kilometre for $10, wrapping up in St. John’s, Nfld. at Mile Zero on the Atlantic. She will be accompanied by two friends. One will paint their experiences along the way with the pictures to be auctioned later. Another friend will make a video of children across Canada who have received help from The Sunshine Foundation. “I know of three families in Vernon who went to Disneyland with The Sunshine Foundation and also those who got special assistive equipment. I will hear

how these other children’s dreams came true and have events in the communities I visit,” she said. Rietdorf will be in Vernon May 19 with an event in Polson Park from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The fundraiser includes a bake sale, live music and a ride around the park with anyone who wants to join her. She’s hoping to see people who use wheelchairs and special bikes, as well as anyone else on wheels, and is also inviting local bands to perform and organizations and businesses to set up displays. “I hope people would come out to cheer me on and have some fun.” Rietdorf encourages supporters and anyone interested in her journey to follow her ride at www.sunshineride.ca. To make a pledge, click on “Donate Now.” She can also be followed on Facebook at Anja’s Sunshine Ride, and on Twitter. “My body is ready to go; nevertheless I know the first two weeks will be tough. But I know for sure that I can do it. “My all-important support team — Kim Lake and Rawle James — and I will be on our way to make every kilometre count in making dreams come true for kids with special needs who will be helped by the Sunshine Foundation.” Once her ride is completed, Rietdorf plans to return to Vernon to work with people with special needs. “This ride is my way to give something back to Canada as an immigrant. I took English lessons at Vernon and District Immigrant Services when I first got here and met many great people and we keep in touch. Canada has done a lot for me,” said Rietdorf. “Every kilometre counts for the kids and that’s the best motivation I have.”

The May long weekend doesn’t just mean an extra day off work. For members of the Vernon Placer Miners Club, it’s also time for the 22nd B.C. Open Gold Panning Championships and Family Fun Days. Taking place May 17 to 19 at the Goldpanner Campground/Chalets at 423 Highway 6 above Cherryville, the fun begins on the Friday night with a flat pan event, music by Treble Makers, where participants are encouraged to bring an instrument and join in for a jam session, and an after-dark night time metal detecting contest — no lights or digging tools required. Admission is free, and the site is open to everyone to spend the May long weekend, winning gold nuggets for as little as one to five dollars for the many games and raffle prizes going on all day Saturday and Sunday. “Expert panners are around to help people new to panning get started,” said Diane Fulbrook, with the Vernon Placer Miners Club. Pancake breakfasts run Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., both days, for $5. A metal detecting contest takes place at 9 a.m. each day. Gold panning eliminations for all ages start at 10 a.m. Saturday with the top-10 in each category to go in the finals on Sunday. A standard 14-inch metal gold pan (provided) is used. The youth have their own youth trophy for the highest overall points of both days and nugget prizes for the top three each day in juniors up to 13 years and teens 13 to 16 years old. “New this year, the experts will be panning in the elimination rounds Saturday with everyone else, and the half-barrel tubs are placed on stands so no one needs to kneel on the ground. A stool is handy for little ones,” said Fulbrook. “Lots of splashing happens, be prepared to get wet.”

Saturday night continues with a barbecued steak dinner for $14 and more music by Treble Makers and campers. At 6:30 p.m. the bannock baking contest starts with provided ingredients. Bring a frying pan to bake it in, a rack, a turner and bowl or plastic bag to mix it. For more information, please see the club’s website at www.vernongoldpanning.com For camping reservations, contact the Gold Panner Campground/Chalets at 1-250-547-2025, the Route 6 Campground at www.route6.webs.com or 1-250-547-0266. “Bring a chair and enjoy the fun. Dress for all kinds of weather — that’s one thing we can’t control. Rain or shine it’s a go. No weather stops a miner.”

Officer assists family Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s bylaw enforcement officers help residents in need and that’s just what they did. Officers Russ Lutsenko and Lee Elliott recently became aware of two adult geese leading a flock of babies on 30th Avenue downtown and there was a concern they could be injured by traffic. “The officers herded the geese along the sidewalk all of the way to Polson Park,” said Clint Kanester, bylaw enforcement manager.

“They crossed the street in the crosswalk with all of the vehicles stopping to allow the procession to pass.” And the efforts of Lutsenko and Elliott didn’t go unnoticed. “Many people opened their windows to thank the officers for their assistance in ensuring the safety of the new family,” said Kanester. “The officers last saw the family of geese heading across the grass of Polson Park towards the pond, hopefully to find a new home.”

Police sound alert Morning Star Staff

RCMP are advising Armstrong and area residents of a door-todoor scam making the rounds. Police had a report of a person going door-to-door looking for work, then not following through after receiving payment. “Every year our office receives files regarding the same type of incidents,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The police are reminding local residents to take precautions when these socalled door-to-door contractors come to your home, soliciting business and then ask for a good portion of the money up front.” If you are looking to have repairs made to your home, Molendyk said to ask friends or relatives about people

they have dealt with. “Most legitimate contractors will provide you a quote in writing, and then request money at various stages of the work being completed,” he said.

Coldstream plans for the future Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

A steady stream of residents came out to help guide the future of their community as Coldstream kicked off its first public planning session Monday. Close to 100 people turned out to the Coldstream Women’s Institute to learn about some of the suggestions on the table for the Official Community Plan. Those who missed Monday’s open house have another opportunity tonight at the Lavington Fire Department from 3 to 5 p.m. and again from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. with presentations at 4:30 and 7:30. Among the topics of discussion are housing density, land use (agricultural, rural, residential, commercial and industrial), infrastructure and inter-jurisdictional planning, parks and trails, hazardous lands identification and transportation. “Council wants to know what people have to say about all of this,” said Michael Stamhuis, Coldstream chief administrative officer. “It’s everybody’s community plan.” While his dad chatted with planners, four-yearold Tarran Tepper got a lesson on land designation maps and where all the great fishing spots are. He may not know it yet, but this plan will help shape his future in Coldstream. But he does have a few ideas already. “He wants chickens in his backyard,” said dad Roger. Other topics of discussion include densifying secondary suites, duplexes, cottages and parcel sizes. “More and more communities are densifying,” said Alan Pattison, community planner. “It’s very efficient for infrastructure.” Agriculture is another area of discussion, including what minimum lot sizes should be, whether additional hillside development should occur and other land use subjects. “This OCP is going to help form a new policy direction for agricultural land,” said Pattison. The public is urged to share their view on these and other topics at the open houses or on the OCP blog through www.districtofcoldstream.ca/ocp or in writing to the municipal office. “In the fall we will be back with a draft plan to share with the community,” said Pattison.

If you’re missing a kayak, you may want to give the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP detachment a call. A resident in the 8400 block of Kalavista Drive, in Coldstream, reported Saturday he found a kayak at the Kalavista boat launch. “It appears the kayak had come loose from its moorings near that area,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. The kayak is described as purple and blue in colour. Molendyk said he has withheld the model of the kayak along with a couple of other identifying markings. The owner can call the detachment at 250545-7171.

An anonymous, donation has helped put new equipment into the hands of students in both mechanical engineering technology and welding. The $149,500 donation made to the Okanagan College Foundation was targeted specifically for the two departments, and came at a time when critical pieces of equipment needed to be replaced. “This helps us out immensely,” said Dean Nutter, welding chairperson. “We used our portion of the funds to buy a shear. That’s a big piece of equipment and something we use every single day, seven hours a day.” The new shear, which mechanically cuts through massive pieces of metal, also provides the latest in safety technology in the form of a laser beam. If that beam is broken,

the equipment automatically shuts down. “This piece of machinery meets and exceeds all the safety and technology standards,” said Nutter. Over in the mechanical engineering technology department, the funds will go towards robotic arms. “What this donation did was upgrade the lab, so we now have a state-of-the-art robotics lab,” said professor Nadir Ould-Khessal. “With this new equipment, we can provide the students with a deeper, richer learning experience in terms of both theory and hands-on skills.” Along with the new robots, the donation provided for additional $20,000 in components, so students now have six complete stations to work at, removing the needs for classes to share robotic equipment such as conveyors.

Expert warns of mussel infestation, urges prevention judie steeves Morning Star Staff

Halfway measures will get halfway results,

warns D.D. Davis, boat inspection trainer in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area in

Nevada — and once invasive quagga mussels are in your lake, they’re there forever.

So, she advocates taking severe measures upfront to prevent an infestation, in order to

avoid billions of dollars in damage to everything aquatic, from the valley’s ecology to

waterworks, bridges, boats and beaches. Davis spoke at a workshop held in Kelowna by the Invasive Species Council of B.C. In her neck of the woods, and in many other western U.S. states, there are mandatory inspections of boats before they can leave or enter a different waterway, in an effort to prevent the spread of both zebra and quagga mussels, invasive species that have already forever altered the Great Lakes. Davis told those attending the workshop a new fish hatchery on Lake Mead had to be shut down because it couldn’t continue to operate under the infestation of quagga mussels. As well, the mussels have gotten into the penstocks and they clog pipes, screens, gates and other equipment at the Hoover, Davis and Parker Dams, she reported, costing millions a year. A ‘Don’t Move a Mussel’ campaign is underway there, while other states run similar campaigns to alert boaters and all other water users of the danger of transferring anything from a wakeboard or fishing rod to a boat or scuba gear from one body of water to another without a thorough cleaning and appropriate treatment. Because the Lake Mead area is a half day drive for 30 million people, it’s a busy recreation area, and a popular place for those who enjoy water sports, Davis noted. Compliance with regulations regarding movement of boats is

expensive so boaters are not likely to voluntarily comply, she warned, and commercial marinas don’t want to annoy customers, so they can’t be relied upon to ensure compliance, she added. De-contamination equipment can cost a quarter million dollars, and it will sit idle without enforcement, she said. All weekend boaters are asked to Clean, Drain and Dry every surface of their boats and equipment, including bilges in order to stop aquatic hitchhikers. She advised B.C. to be proactive; to have a strategy ready, to focus on early detection and to learn from other jurisdictions where they already have the invasive mussels and have been trying to control them. Consistency in messaging and ways of dealing with the problem would help water users to comply with recommendations regarding control and preventing their spread, she said. Boat inspections where boaters are asked where their boat was last and how long it’s been out of the water are needed, she said. She was impressed with the beginning this province has made to pass stringent legislation to prevent the movement of such invasive aliens, and to launch an information campaign to alert people to the dangers of their spread. The good news is, Davis says she’s confident the valley can prevent contamination with the mussel with adequate effort.

Shortcuts to a lush lawn

Many homeowners aspire to having a lush, green lawn as the showcase of their properties. The front lawn can make a statement and indicate to passersby the property owners’ personalities and design preferences.

Lawn care takes some dedication and hard work, but there are certain ways to cut down on the amount of effort required to maintain a landscape. By employing a few different shortcuts, you can have a healthy, lush lawn without spending all of your free time cutting the grass or pruning the trees.

* Stop weeds at the start. Weeding is one of the most time-consuming parts of maintaining a lawn. Weeds can proliferate throughout the lawn if not addressed in a timely manner. Once weeds take root they can become a nuisance, so it’s best to treat weeds before they even have a chance to sprout. Apply a preemergent weed control product as soon as possible in the spring and then reapply it about three months later to ensure weeds are eradicated. * Plant a urine-resistant grass. Having a dog and maintaining a lush lawn has always been a particular conundrum

* Wake up and water. Watering in the early mornings saves time and energy in the long run by fostering a tougher, more drought-resistant lawn. If you water early in the day, less water will be lost to evaporation. Limit watering to a few times per week, and less if you have had adequate rain.

How to make the most of a small outdoor space

(NC)—You don’t need to have a huge backyard or even be an expert gardener to enjoy a green oasis or fresh produce this summer. Even those with limited space have the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors by following a few simple tips:

* Mow less often. Raise the mower’s blade so that the grass is longer in between cuttings. The taller grass will shade the soil and block weeds from germinating. It also helps improve soil’s moisture retention.

Create Your Ideal Oasis

* Mow when the lawn is dry. It’s not advisable to mow the lawn when it is wet. Slippery conditions can not only make it more dangerous to push a mower, but also slow down the time it can take to tackle the chore. The mower blades

as fertilizer and redistribute nutrients to the lawn as they breakdown into the soil. According to “The Organic Lawn Care Manual,” leaving clippings on the lawn will fulfill about 25 percent of fertilizer requirements. Plus, you save time bagging up clippings.

* Don’t cut corners. Adjusting a landscape design to have arches and curves can reduce the time it takes to mow and edge a property. Hard corners in a landscape will require more time to keep straight and pristine.

A self-sufficient garden is a garden that sustains itself through proper planning and execution. Such gardens can almost take care of themselves so long as the soil is healthy soil, the seeds are reused and organic material is produced. Self-sustaining gardens also represent a lifestyle where individuals are responsible for producing their own foods -- thus

sustaining themselves without the need to shop for produce elsewhere. When planting your own self-sustaining garden, consider the following tips.

be 40 percent sand, 40 percent silt and 20 percent clay. Having the right balance of soil can secure root formation and promote proper drainage.

* Start with soil. Healthy soil is essential to a thriving garden. The soil must have the right pH, correct texture and composition, and be full of nutrients. Adding compost -which can be produced in the yard as well -- to the soil will enrich the soil with nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium.

* Test the pH. Certain plants need a specific pH in order to grow. A neutral pH range is typically ideal for growing vegetables. A pH tester can be purchased from a gardening center. Amend the soil accordingly to get the soil back to its correct level.

* Maintain proper soil consistency. Soil that is the right consistency, meaning the optimum balance of sand, clay and actual soil, is another necessity for a self-sustaining garden. The ideal ratio should

* Know the growing season. Vegetables should be planted during the season in which they will thrive. Peas, beets and cabbage, for example, are cold-temperature vegetables, while cucumbers, squash and melons thrive in warm

climates. Plant accordingly so that the vegetables will have the best chances for success. * Purchase quality seeds. Use fresh seeds, particularly ones that have been harvested from your own garden the year before, to have the best chances for germination. Or buy seeds from a reputable source, like a garden center or an online retailer who specializes in vegetable seeds. * Start seedlings indoors. You may want to work with seedlings indoors so that you can monitor growth and care for them more easily. Then transplant the seedlings outside when they are stable enough for the elements.

Shortcuts to a lush lawn

Many homeowners aspire to having a lush, green lawn as the showcase of their properties. The front lawn can make a statement and indicate to passersby the property owners’ personalities and design preferences.

Lawn care takes some dedication and hard work, but there are certain ways to cut down on the amount of effort required to maintain a landscape. By employing a few different shortcuts, you can have a healthy, lush lawn without spending all of your free time cutting the grass or pruning the trees.

* Stop weeds at the start. Weeding is one of the most time-consuming parts of maintaining a lawn. Weeds can proliferate throughout the lawn if not addressed in a timely manner. Once weeds take root they can become a nuisance, so it’s best to treat weeds before they even have a chance to sprout. Apply a preemergent weed control product as soon as possible in the spring and then reapply it about three months later to ensure weeds are eradicated. * Plant a urine-resistant grass. Having a dog and maintaining a lush lawn has always been a particular conundrum

* Wake up and water. Watering in the early mornings saves time and energy in the long run by fostering a tougher, more drought-resistant lawn. If you water early in the day, less water will be lost to evaporation. Limit watering to a few times per week, and less if you have had adequate rain.

To help you get to sleep naturally we combined the most effective natural sleep aids. These have had a long history of safe, non addictive use. Some like hops and Chamomile have a history of use spanning centuries. Sleep 8 helps rebalance your body’s natural circadian rhythm. Here’s a look at some of the ingredients in Sleep 8; Passion flower extract supports production of Gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) to suppress excessive brain activity and induce relaxation. Melatonin supports circadian rhythms that regulate sleep cycles. Skullcap extract supports the nervous system. Although catnip drives cats crazy it helps humans relax. Highly bio-available magnesium as magnesium-bisglycinate supports the myelin sheaths that insulate nerve fibers and support nervous system function. San Qi herb supplies Isolates which have been shown to be effective for the treatment of general anxiety disorder and insomnia. San Qi also supports the generation and maintenance of neurons within the cerebral cortex that are responsible for memory consolidation, perceptual awareness, and consciousness. Sleep is critical, deep sleep is essential for tissue repair, committing information to long term memory, and overall great health. Studies with laboratory animals have shown higher mortality rates for those exposed to sleep deprivation than starvation. Sleep is a necessity not a luxury.

Agriculture key election issue

“Let us give you something to smile about...”

tom fletcher

Black Press

Relief from carbon tax on farms and promotion of B.C.grown agricultural products are key promises in the campaign for the May 14 provincial election. The B.C. Liberal Party and the B.C. NDP have argued for a decade about the best way to promote local food consumption. The NDP platform promises to reinstate the “Buy B.C.” program that identifies products grown anywhere in the province. The B.C. Liberal government ended that program, and in 2012 it committed $2 million to regional “Buy Local” promotions that they say are more adaptable to local needs. The party’s current platform promises to double that funding to “promote 50- and 100mile diets.” Neither party is specific about assistance for tree fruit growers. The NDP pledges to “help orchardists with replanting and other costs,” while the B.C. Liberals offer to “begin work on a permanent and sustainable tree fruit replant program, to be implemented following the current three-year, $2 million program.” In its pre-election budget, the B.C. Liberal government has offered $20 million in carbon tax relief for greenhouse and flower growers, in addition to an exemption for

Green Party proposes major reforms, including phasing out synthetic chemical pesticides, banning genetically modified crops such as canola and removing taxes on value-added B.C. products such as juices and wines. Platform highlights: • The B.C. Liberals promise a new meat inspection system by 2014, including a new “Certified B.C. Beef ” brand.

The party also wants to create a “Centre of Excellence for Agriculture” at the University of the Fraser Valley. • The B.C. NDP promises $8 million per year starting in 2014 for agriculture programs. Plans include pilot programs to use B.C. produce in hospitals and long-term care facilities. • The B.C.

Lions believe Walker to be a quick study as they selected the 21-year-old in the sixth round of the Canadian Football League draft Monday. Walker, a Vernon Panther grad who played last season with the UBC Thunderbirds, was chosen 50th overall. “It feels phenomenal,” said Walker, an all-star quarterback with the Panthers. “The B.C. Lions are such a good organization. Their players and everybody is so dedicated. To be a part of that is pretty exciting.” Walker and fiancée Marina Winter travelled to Vancouver for the day Monday, just in case his name was called. “They couldn’t tell me for sure, but I was hoping on it. Either way, it was going to be an exciting day for me, whether I got drafted or not.” They were following the draft on Winter’s cell phone, but then the battery died. Walker told Winter: “We’re just going to leave it and enjoy our day. Whatever happens, it was meant to be.” Added Walker: “Two minutes later, my phone rang.” Excitement Meter The Lions were impressed by the 6-foot, 190-pound Walker’s athleticism and skill-

“Now I just got to make sure I’m ready. It’s the same thing I’ve always been doing,” said Walker, who underwent knee surgery in October after tweaking it last spring. “Because I was able to keep training and keep the muscles strong, it allowed me to keep playing.” Walker began his university football career with the Saskatchewan Huskies, but took a break to venture overseas to play in Europe with the Bratislava Monarchs. He made the switch to DB last spring when he joined the BCFC Okanagan Sun. Walker played one game with the T-Birds last fall before undergoing knee surgery. Being relatively new to the defensive game, Walker has had to learn on the fly, but so far he has thrived on the challenge. “It’s like a big game of cat and mouse. You’re trying to guess what the offence is doing,” he said. “Communication is such a big deal. Being able to talk to the guys around you and do it at such a high level and at such a high speed, it’s important to be able to see things and move without sitting there and wasting time.” Walker thanked his family, friends, high school coaches Tim Thorpe and Sean Smith, and all the organizations he has played with. “There’s so many people. Everybody had a part and everybody helped me along the way.”

toughness and that’s what you want.” Walker will now keep training on his own in preparation for a month-long rookie camp in Kamloops at the end of May. How he performs there, and in the CFL exhibition season, will largely determine where he fits with the club.

United U15 boys halt Kelowna win streak Continued from A30

United U15 boys drew 2-2 with Revelstoke Sunday at Marshall #5 after shocking previously unbeaten Kelowna 2-1 Thursday night in Lake Country. Brandon Melbourne, with a superb 30-yarder which found the top corner, gave Vernon the lead Sunday. Liam Ross put United (3-2-2) up early in the second half. Against Kelowna, Michael Williamson split the defenders six minutes in to give United the lead. Kelowna tied it up late in the half, but Zak Kronbauer finished at 25 minutes. Cole Shoemaker was sharp in goal. The U17 boys had no subs and lost 3-0 to the host Kamloops U18 Blaze in the scorching heat. United received bold play from forwards Wade Buller, Mike Bennett and Nathan Gatenby. In U14 boys action, Vernon United and Kamloops Blaze Blue battled to a thrilling 4-4 tie Sunday at MacArthur Island Sports Complex. Malcolm Wiens scored five minutes in by toe poking the keeper on the right side, after receiving the ball from Gavin Mason. It took only two minutes for Kamloops to respond, and they added a second from a free kick to take the lead. Wiens struck again

in the 25th minute after being set up nicely by Shey Townley. Late in the half, Vernon surrendered another goal off a long shot that eluded Connor Holliday. Vernon came out strong in the second half on a bar-down blast from Elias Jensen. Morgan Nichols, who took over in net for Vernon at halftime, made a great penalty save, but the Blaze converted three minutes later. Wyatt Carter and Sam Eggert were strong on defence and Charis Ondrik motivated the midfield as Vernon pushed for the equalizer. At 15 minutes from time, a Wiens’ corner was converted as Ondrik knocked it off a Kamloops defender into the net. “Strong games were had by Connor Johnson on defence and Shey Towney and Cameron MacKenzie in midfield,” said United coach Rolf Hirschkorn. United U13 boys got a hat trick from speedy Ben Purvis and inspired, intelligent play from everybody in a 6-1 grounding of host Shuswap Sunday at Blackburn Park. Roadrunner Mica Burns was dynamic working the wing effectively to feed the middle. He had three assists as United

went to 2-0-2. Perez Vermuelen and Micah Martens connected on corkers, while Kazuki Comley, who set up Martens, dropped in a beautiful lob shot for the final goal. Chris Atkins was relentless in challenging for every ball, while Kody Kongsdorf, Joe Eggert and Trent Graham shut down the Shuswap attack. The Vernon United U11 #1 boys split a pair of games, blanking host Kelowna Red 3-0 Sunday morning on goals from Zach Manthorne, Saajan Klair and Zachary Smith, off a beautiful give-and-go with Luc Jones. Kevin Morgan was stellar while recording the shutout, and Jack Cotter and Liam Reid powered a strong defence. The afternoon game gave the boys their first loss of the year, bowing 4-2 to an improved Kelowna Black squad. Falling behind 1-0 in the first minute, goals from Smith and Isaiah Ondrik pushed

Vernon ahead, but consistent attacks from Kelowna proved too much for the boys. United U11 #2 ambushed Shuswap 7-2 and clipped Kelowna White 4-3. Matt Reich was fantastic on the wing versus Shuswap. Maksim Chirkoff was speedy on the left side and was magical with his left-foot deliveries. Goal scorers were Liam Glennon, with a hat trick, Reich, Aiden Skinner and Adam Bsat. In Game 2 under a hot afternoon sun, Logan Quibell was solid in net to keep the game close and Gavin Medema and Ben Morgan were great defensively. Ahead 2-0 at the half with goals by Medema and Josh McKeown, Kelowna fought back to even the game. The teams then traded goals with Tyson Fairthweather equalizing for Vernon. McKeown bagged the winner with only minutes left.

The Vernon Source For Sports Tigers put on a special teams clinic Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. The Cats went 8-for14 on the powerplay and added two more shorthanded goals in an 11-6 Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League win over the Armstrong Shamrocks. “Solid performance by the boys,” said head coach Myles Brumpton, noting the Tigers were also 73 per cent on the penalty kill. “They ran through our systems seamlessly. We won most of the loose ball battles and when we had possession we made good work with it.” Ryan Sarazin showed great precision from the top of the circle in collecting four goals for Vernon (2-1), who held period leads of 4-1 and 10-2.

Drabiuk hustled for 2+3, veteran Craig Bigsby pocketed a pair on the man advantage, Jordan Orr supplied 1+2 and Liam MacPhee netted a third-period shorty, assisted by Austin Lewarne. Shifty Jay Seaton added three assists. Stephen Ringdal had 3+1 for the 1-4 Irish, who got singles from Adam New, Joel Castle and Conor Payne. Willy Hanley had three assists and Sam Hanley had two. Armstrong head coach Bryan Cope said the non-stop penalties kept the Rocks from finding their rhythm. “We deserved a lot of penalties, but there was no flow to the game,” he said. “You can’t run the system when you’re

shorthanded all the time. And with the guns they’ve got you don’t want to give them opportunities.” Joel Fruncillo recorded 36 saves for the win. Cole McFarlane made 35 stops for Armstrong. Armstrong hosts the undefeated Kelowna Raiders (5-0) Friday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. The Tigers entertain the South Okanagan Flames (1-1) Saturday at Wesbild. Me a nw h i l e , Shamrock grad Brett Hawrys pocketed two goals and three assists as the host Nanaimo Timbermen opened the B.C.

Barker netted a powerplay goal before being tossed early in the third period in the Timbermen’s 16-4 loss to the New Westminster Salmonbellies Sunday at Queen’s Park Arena. Hawrys, who is fifth in league scoring with 5-7-12 in three games, collected two assists. He is one point ahead of Vernon’s Ryan Landels, who has 10-2-12 in two games with the Port Coquitlam Saints. Barker leads the league in penalty minutes with 56, more than double the next nearest player (Trenton Matsuzaki of the Burnaby Lakers has 22 PIM).

Kingfishers claim bronze Morning Star Staff

The 2005 North Okanagan Kingfishers clipped the Vancouver Warriors 3-2 Sunday to win the bronze medal at the Kelowna Heat Spring Blast AAA Hockey Tournament JJ Milne of Vernon led the Kings with two goals while Owen Young of Salmon Arm added a single. Logan Killingbeck of Vernon earned the win. “The kids worked hard the past two months and showed up strong in all three tournaments they played,” said Fishers’ head coach Tim Milne. “They learned the only thing in their control is their effort and it showed throughout the Kelowna tournament.” The Kingfishers grounded the Peace Country Selects 8-2 and host Kelowna Heat 3-1 score before losing

10-6 to Langley’s BC Lightning 10-6 in round-robin play. The North Okanagan squad fell one goal short of the gold-medal game, losing 9-8 to eventual tournament champion Calgary Havoc. “Our program had some great success this spring season and the whole experience was positive for the players,” said Milne. “For a mom-and-pop operation, it was satisfying for everyone to compete with the big, established spring programs...and then call it summer.” The Kingfishers, sponsored by Kingfisher Boats of Vernon, was comprised of top 2005-born players from Vernon, Armstrong, Enderby and Salmon Arm. The Kings placed fifth in Kamloops AAA Pirate Challenge and won gold at the West Kelowna Knights Challenge.

The Vernon Kal Tire AA Canadians stopped the Prince George AAA Knights 2-1 Sunday to repeat as champions of the Wesley Nelson Pee Wee Baseball Tournament in West Kelowna. Rick Leroux’s crew got five strong innings from Caden Doyle, who allowed just one single before giving the ball to Nick Cherkowski. Prince George could only muster a lead-off double which led to their run in the bottom of the seventh, off Cherkowski. The C’s scored in the fourth when Jaden Parsons led off with a single, stole second, advanced to third on a ground out by Jarod Leroux and crossed home plate on Cherkowski’s single to left centre field. Vernon got the winning run in the sixth when call-up Eric Foufoulas led off with a single and moved to third after singles by Caden Bracken and game MVP Parsons. With the Knights’ infield playing in to cut the run down at home, Leroux singled and Foufoulas slid in safely. The Canadians opened by ambushing the Prince George AAA Outlaws 9-0 with pitcher Colton Schaper-Kotter taking MVP with two singles and a double. Doyle was 3-for-3. Carter Morris earned the decision, Parsons stroked his first home run of the season and Chase Batchelor took MVP as the C’s rocked the Kelowna Ramblers 9-5. Cherkowski went 3-for-3 and took MVP as Vernon ripped the Rutland Rockies 12-3, while Leroux was named MVP as the C’s bounced West Kelowna 9-5. Leroux, Parsons, Zach Orchard and Foufoulas each had two hits. The Vernon C&A Contracting Canadians swept

the West Kelowna Jays 11-1 and 16-6 in a Bantam baseball double header Sunday at Marshall Field. In the first game, Tyler Wellman got the start and pitched three solid innings, allowing one run off two hits while striking out 10 batters. Tyler Liefke mowed down out six of seven batters he faced in relief. Liefke was 2-for-2 at the plate with a home run. Other notables at the plate were Arron Fairbairn, who went 2-for-2 with a triple, and Chris Riva, with a pair of doubles. In Game 2, Elliott Landy pitched two solid innings, striking out six while allowing one run. Bailey Wellman, Caleb Versteeg and Nathan Nesbitt helped out in relief. Liefke smashed two more dingers, while Landy hit one tater, Nesbitt was 3-for-3 and Wellman went 2-for-3. Brett Lambert was solid all day in the outfield and at the plate ( 2-for-3 with three walks and six stolen bases). C & A play three games this weekend, facing the Vernon Coldstone Creamery on Saturday at 11 a.m. They play Kamloops in a Sunday twinbill at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. (Marshall Field). In Tadpole play Monday night at the Armoury Park, the Meterors edged the Grizzly Bears 15-14 in a battle of Coldstone Creamery sponsored teams. The Bears scored early with a big hit by Matthew Brockman. The Meteors streaked around the diamond when Braxton McDonald knocked one into left field. The Grizzlies came back in the second with some sharp outs at first base by Dylan Hatalcik, but couldn’t overcome a late Meteor comeback when Zachary Newman stepped on the plate.

Surrey, Brooks move to Royal Bank Cup Black Press Sports

B.C.’s best team is also Western Canada’s best. The Surrey Eagles won the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup Saturday night in Nanaimo, brushing back the Alberta champion Brooks Bandits 4-1 before 1,130 fans at Frank Crane Arena. The Bandits iced the Yorkton Terriers 1-0 Sunday before 880 fans to claim the second WCC berth in the Royal Bank Cup, starting Saturday in Summerside, PEI. The Minnesota Wilderness (Central Ontario region), Truro Bearcats (Maritime champions) and Summerside Western Capitals

(host) are the other entries. “At the beginning of the season, if you asked me if we would have won, it wouldn’t have crossed my mind,” said Demico Hannoun, Surrey’s player of the game. “But it’s a great feeling right now.” The BCHL champions calmly killed off a number of penalties and got goals from Jordan Klimek, Hannoun, Drew Best and Craig Wyszomirski. Cam Maclise responded for the Bandits. Kelowna product Brett Mulcahy, Eagles’ captain, said his team’s depth on both forward and defence were factors, along

with shut-down goaltending from Michael Santaguida, named Top Goalie in the tournament. D-man Devon Toews of Surrey was chosen MVP. “Everyone contributed, it seemed, just what they needed to do – scoring, blocking shots, getting pucks out of the zone,” he said. Yorkton toppled the host Clippers 5-3 Saturday afternoon before 1,100 fans. “I don’t think we were quite as consistent as we wanted to be,” said Vernon’s Trevor Fitzgerald, Clippers’ captain. “A couple breakdowns, but that happens in the game of hockey. We needed to be better, more

consistent, more mature.” Brock Maschmeyer, the Clippers’ player of the game, said there are no regrets. “We came out to win and didn’t get the … results I wish we could have,” he said. “I believe we could have taken every single team.” Added Fitzgerald: “We played good hockey for the majority of the tournament, but it’s consistency that cost us our season in the end. And that’s something that all the other teams that are here have, is consistency. They won championships because of that exact reason.”

STAGE 2 WATER RESTRICTIONS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY May 8, 2013 until further notice. Due to extreme temperatures causing a quick spring runoff, the City of Armstrong is having to switch water source from the Fortune Creek surface supply to groundwater wells. The creek water temporarily contains too much organic debris to be reliable. Some of the changes you may notice with the well water are – the water from the wells is slightly warmer, it may taste differently and require more soap for cleaning. However, it is entirely safe to use. As the well water is limited, it is necessary to implement Stage 2 Water Restrictions immediately. During Stage 2 Restrictions, no person shall: i)

use a sprinkler or irrigation system to water a lawn, garden, trees or shrubs; or ii) wash driveways, sidewalks, parking lots or exterior building surfaces. During Stage 2 a person may: i)

water trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables if watering is done by hand-held container or a hose equipped with a shut-off nozzle, but only during the prescribed Stage 1 watering hours and days which are: – an even numbered address may water on even days of the calendar and an odd numbered address may water on odd days of the calendar – between the hours of 6 am to 10 am and 7 pm to midnight; and ii) Water newly planted trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables if watering by hand during installation and for the following 24 hours. These restrictions apply to all residents of the City of Armstrong, Pleasant Valley and Round Prairie Specified Areas, Highland Park, Stardel, Silver Star and Lansdowne Water Districts and other residents of Spallumcheen receiving City of Armstrong water.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder

WHEN SIDE TRICKS HAVE DRIED UP Alija Izetbegovic, the first president of Bosnia and Herzegovina, said, “We play an active role and try to influence our destiny; we have our own trump cards and we use them.” So far this week, we have been looking at defenses in no-trump contracts aided by placing declarer’s high-card points based on the bidding and play. Suitably assisted, one defender has known which suit to attack to gain sufficient tricks to defeat the contract. Now let’s move to trump contracts. South is in four spades. West leads the heart ace. How should East plan the defense? The auction given is using Standard. If you have

adopted two-over-one gameforcing, North would rebid three spades because the opener’s hand strength is undefined. Then South would bid four spades to indicate a minimum. East does not want his partner to shift, so should signal with his heart nine at trick one. West cashes the heart king and plays his third heart. After East wins with his queen, what does he do next? East should count the points. South showed 12 to 14, the dummy has 13, West has already produced seven, and East has seven. Since all four jacks are on view, West cannot have another honor card. The only chance for a fourth trick lies in the trump suit. East must lead his last

heart. Here, when West ruffs with the spade nine, it uppercuts dummy’s queen and promotes a spade trick for East. When you have taken every possible side-suit trick, give a ruff-and-sluff. It might result in a trump promotion or an uppercut.

Marjorie Agnes (Wilcox) Lamarche

May 27, 1929 - Oct. 25, 2012 Pastor Roy White officiating Date: Sat., May 11, 2013 Time: 11:00am St. John’s Lutheran Church 5151 Alain Rd., Vernon, BC

December 22, 1926 to April 28, 2013 Marjorie was born in Kamloops, B.C. and passed peacefully on Sunday, April 28, 2013 in the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail, BC. Born to Thomas Joseph Wilcox and Margaret Hamilton Pollock on December 22, 1926. Marjorie was the youngest of nine children who have all predeceased her. Alice (James Millar) Kamloops, Francis (Vi Fiddick) Castlegar, BC; Joseph (Doris Perry), New Westminister, BC; Helen (James Standen), Kamloops, BC; Nora (William Belcham), Little Fort, BC; Albert Seraphim (Olga Shinduke), Vernon, BC; Robert (Eva Bartlett) Salmon Arm, BC; Dorothy (Ronald Bonnett) Oliver, BC;

TUCKER, GERALD OZZARD It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Gerald Ozzard Tucker on May 2, 2013 in Vernon, BC. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.myalternatives.ca Cremation arrangements entrusted to ALTERNATIVES FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES® Vernon 250-558-0866 & Armstrong 250-546-7237

Marjorie was raised in the Louis/Heffley Creek Valley, (near the Sun Peaks Ski Area north of Kamloops, BC) from 1931 to 1944. Her formal education ceased in Grade 5 with the closure of the rural school. Her education continued by correspondence, interrupted by the rigors of farm life, dominated by sheep herding. Mom had an deep affinity with animals, especially dogs and horses, who she considered her best friends while growing up in rural isolation. When Mom was 17 years old, her mother accompanied her to Victoria B.C. to attended High School from 1944 to 1947. Mom considered education a privilege and honour; she was a life long learner and self educated, often termed ‘professor’ by her close friends. She loved history and kept herself abreast of world events. Marjorie loved gardening, cooking, sewing, knitting and spent many hours playing cards with family and friends. As a devote Catholic, Mom’s faith was very important to her and she was a perpetual student of the Bible. St. Rita’s Roman Catholic Parish community was focal in her life and she was a life member of the Catholic Women’s League. She greatly appreciated those who brought her communion on Sundays when she was no longer able to attend Mass.

Peggy Newman December 24, 1926 ~ December 29, 2012

The interment of cremated remains will take place at a Graveside Service 3:00 pm, Saturday, May 11, 2013 Pleasant Valley Cemetery

Marjorie married Joseph Andre Lamarche (predeceased November 10, 2001) on December 29, 1947 in Victoria, BC. Shortly there after they moved to Port Alberni, B.C. to find work and start a family. Their first six children were born in Port Alberni, B.C. before moving to Castlegar, BC in 1960, where the last child was born. Marjorie lived at Castlewood Village for the last six years, where she greatly enjoyed the companionship and comradery of many friends and enjoyed many of their activities. These were very happy years for her. Marjorie will be missed by her Castlewood Family, and we, her family, would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all who supported and enriched her life while living there.

Amy Lillian DeBoer

Marjorie was an avid reader and passed on her love for reading to all her children. Mom’s greatest and noblest calling in life was that of being the Mother of seven children, Bernard (Wendy Koeller), Calgary, AB; Mary Catherine (Andre Ruel), Courtenay, BC; Jacqueline (Fraser East), Nelson, BC; Philip (Bonny Nerenberg), Parksville, BC; Louise (deceased May 28, 2006) Castlegar, BC; Gerard (Nadene Gregory), Dunneville, Ontario; Gisele (Lamarche) Trail, BC. Mom was very proud of her 23 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren.

1918 - 2012

A memorial service will be held

Sat., May 11, 2013 at 10:00am at Pleasant Valley Funeral Chapel, Vernon, BC

The funeral for Marjorie, will be held at St. Rita’s Catholic Church Hall, 513 7th Avenue, Castlegar, BC V1N 1R3, at 11am on Saturday May 4th, 2013. The viewing will be held prior from 10:00-10:30am at St. Rita’s Hall. Marjorie’s heart was broken by the fire at St. Rita’s, so donations can be made, in lieu of flowers, to St. Rita’s Rebuilding Fund.

In lieu of flowers consider a memory donation of choice.

Sarah Greenwood of Castlegar Funeral Chapel has been entrusted with the arrangements.

Today marks the same amount of time you lived on this earth, as you’ve been gone ... 18 years, 9 months, 7 days No longer able to hold your hug, your hand, your heartbeat, we soothe ourselves with ephemeral memories, a frozen photo, visitations in night time dreams, and clutch to your essence there. Now gone as long as you were here, we release you to your path. Say “Jory”, for he lives in us. With loving remembrances, Susan & Ken Dennon & Tenille
