Fulton grads make an entrance LISA VANDERVELDE Morning Star Staff

It is all about the entrance. At least that was the case with some of the Clarence Fulton Secondary School graduates as they arrived for photos in their formal wear in everything from a golf cart to a dune buggy Friday afternoon at Polson Park. “Kacey (Smart) really wanted to do something original, so at first we were going to do a bike, but then we thought, nope that’s too much muscle power, so then we decided to go for the amazing golf cart,” said Tianna Harrington about her arrival with Smart in a balloonladen golf cart. As well as the interesting modes of transportation, the park buzzed with excited chatter between friends and best wishes and compliments from family members. “I’m going to miss seeing my friends every day and knowing they will be there and I’ll miss my sports teams,” said Danielle Olson when asked about what she is sad to leave behind. “I won’t miss school work and getting up early,” said Olson’s friend Stella Croll. Even though their high school careers are over, most grads have a plan for their future in place, ranging from post secondary education, hitting the work force or traveling. “I’m going to go to college and work part time for a couple of years,” said Jared Smith. “I will work to save up enough money to go travelling and then go from there,” said Croll.

Swollen creeks force Lumby into action richard rolke Morning Star Staff

High water had Lumby area residents scrambling to protect property. Flooding started late afternoon Thursday in the Whitevale area, with rain-related problems developing within the village early Friday morning. “I haven’t seen it this bad since 1999,” said Kevin Acton, Lumby mayor. Residents in the 100 to 300 block of Whitevale Road began sandbagging as Harris Creek spilled its bank. “No residents were forced from their homes as water levels stayed below the living spaces,” said Ron Baker, community protective services manager at the Regional District of North Okanagan, on Friday. “I understand some crawl spaces did get wet.” Calls of high water started pouring into the village office at about 4 a.m. Friday as Bessette and Duteau creeks flooded. “It (Duteau) came up a

metre overnight and was filling people’s basements,” said Acton. “Water was running right through some shops.” Apparently, water was also lapping up against the fire department’s doors on Friday. Village crews and residents immediately began sandbagging to ensure the situation didn’t get worse. “This is something we’re used to dealing with,” said Acton of having three creeks running through the area. “We make sure passages are clear and nothing (trees) is blocking the creeks.”

Flooding creeks have left several large areas of water throughout Lumby and near Whitevale. The creeks spilled their banks because of steady rain over the last few days. Bessette Creek (right) flooded its banks, along with Duteau and Harris creeks.

Montessori school has a new place to call home roger knox

“It has everything we need. It’s the right size.”

Creekside Montessori Children’s School can officially plan its 10th anniversary celebrations in October. Housed in a portable at Vernon’s Okanagan Landing Elementary for nearly a decade, the school was looking at possible closure this summer if owner Valerie Brousseau couldn’t find a new home. Brousseau’s portable lease with the Vernon School District expired at the end of May, and the portable that has housed Creekside Montessori is being moved to Lumby to house an alternative education program. After her story appeared in The Morning Star, Brousseau received seven phone calls

— Valerie Brousseau

for potential new homes and settled on the old 1,800-square foot Curves building in Coldstream, owned by Art and Myrna Ferris. “This is a building I have looked at and inquired about,” said Brousseau of her soon-to-be new home for Creekside Montessori. She has a five-year lease at the site starting July 1. “It has everything we need. It’s the right

size, it’s got parking, it’s next to an elementary school (Coldstream Elementary). It’s perfect. We’re absolutely thrilled.” The old location for Creekside Montessori had been perfect as well, as there were Montessori programs at Okanagan Landing school, but those programs are being moved to Silver Star Elementary. Since she started Creekside Montessori, Brousseau and staff have taught close to 300 students, ages three, four and five. She has two classes of 20 kids – one morning, one afternoon. The new facility will allow Brousseau to run her Montessori preschool, and enough room for an all-day Montessori program. Spaces are available for children in both.

“I just want to thank everyone who called and offered to help us out,” said a grateful Brousseau.

Some North Westside residents are boiling over proposed changes to their water bills. The Regional District of Central Okanagan board will decide Monday if it’s going to reduce the base amount of water a customer receives from 235 cubic metres per quarter to 90 metres. “They are cutting back to get extra money from people,” said Harry Pospolita, a resident who had initiated a petition campaign against the Jim Edgson district’s plan. Pospolita’s primary concern is customers will be receiving access to less water but the rate for the water will remain the same, meaning they will actually pay more. “Everyone is opposed to this. People who have a garden or fruit trees won’t have enough water,” he said, adding that the average water bill is about $800 a year. Pospolita is encouraging residents to attend the district board meeting in Kelowna Monday. “If we show some force, maybe the regional district will decide to do more studies first,” he said. Pospolita also wants pressure placed on North Westside director Jim Edgson to support the residents.

“Mr. Edgson, before he was a director, would have fought this,” said Pospolita. Edgson says he will support the change in the base amount of water received because it will generate between $3,500 to $5,000 a year among all high-end water users in the entire regional district. “The Killiney Beach and Westshore Estate water systems need upgrades and we have a plan to get things fixed,” said Edgson, adding the plan requires funding. “It’s not a tax grab but we set the (base) threshold too high. This is a conservation effort.” Edgson insists the change will only impact 14 to 15 per cent of customers who use more water than necessary. After the 90-metre base is surpassed, the consumption charge will be 35 cents per metre. “Next time you buy a bottle of water in the store, think about it,” said Edgson. RDCO says a 90-cubic-metre quarterly threshold (360 cubic metres a year) is close to Environment Canada’s average household water consumption estimate for B.C. of 325 cubic metres annually. “Many RDCO customers have been demanding that the consumption fee threshold be significantly reduced to encourage water conservation and ensure that heavy water users are paying the extra costs associated with heavy water use, such as electricity and treatment,” said Peter Rotheisler, environmental services manager.

Duteau Creek has been turned off as a water source in Greater Vernon. The Regional District of North Okanagan decided Friday to switch Duteau customers over to the Kalamalka Lake source. “The decision to remove the Duteau Creek water source was based on high turbidity that could compromise the ability to treat the water to drinking water standards,” said Renee Clark, water quality manager. “Staff is investigating the cause and will inform customers as soon as information becomes available. Water will be supplied from the Mission Hill water treatment plant until further notice.” With the change in source water, there are no health-related affects to customers.

“Due to capacity reasons, all customers are being asked not to use water outdoors and to minimize all water use until further notice,” said Clark. “All irrigation watering is restricted at this time to ensure water pressure and quantity is adequate for all customers. Customers will be informed when the Duteau Creek water source is turned back on.

Rain delays road work

The deadline for Vernon’s 30th Avenue revitalization has been drenched. It was anticipated upgrades to main street, from 33rd to 35th streets, would be completed by June 28 but three days of work have been lost because of torrential rain. “You can’t finish concrete properly in the rain,” said Mark Dowhaniuk, the City of Vernon’s infrastructure engineer. Some utility issues have also impacted the completion date, which may not be during the second week of July. The total revitalization project cost is $2.2 million and that remains unchanged despite the delays. “The way the contract is written, there is a clause for unseen site circumstances and weather is one of them,” said Dowhaniuk. As part of the revitalization project, the 33rd

“Businesses continue to be open.”

— Mark Dowhaniuk Street intersection at 30th Avenue will be closed to traffic between today and Friday. Detours will be in effect for the duration of the intersection works and 34th Street will be reopened to accommodate this closure. West and eastbound traffic is to use 32nd Avenue or 25th Avenue to bypass this closure. “Businesses continue to be open during the construction and they appreciate the public’s support,” said Dowhaniuk.

Idling policy considered richard rolke Morning Star Staff

There could soon be a crackdown on Lumby residents who leave their vehicles running. Coun. Randal Ostafichuk wants the anti-noise bylaw amended to include the excessive idling of personal cars and trucks. “Anyone with a diesel truck warming up at 2 a.m. is causing a problem for the neighOstafichuk bours,” he said. Currently, the bylaw only refers to commercial motor vehicles running in a

residential area for more than three minutes. The fine is $100. Ostafichuk says adding residential vehicles to the bylaw would provide village staff and the RCMP the ability to provide enforcement. “It gives them a little more teeth,” he said. “Another side benefit is it reinforces our green stance. It (anti-idling) reduces greenhouse gases.” Council has made no decision regarding Ostafichuk’s request. “We want to see if other municipalities have similar clauses in their bylaws,” he said. Council also wants to determine if expanding the scope of the bylaw would have a financial impact on bylaw enforcement.


Housing starts stable New home construction remains stable in Vernon. There were 12 housing starts in May compared to 13 during the same month in 2012. Year-to-date, there have been 68 housing starts in Vernon. That compares to 64 units during the first five months of 2012.

Heronry causes a flap richard rolke

A popular Vernon ecological reserve is at the centre of a legal dispute. Several parties are being sued by an insurance company after a tree from the 24th Street heronry fell and damaged an adjacent home in 2010. “They chose to live there and the herons were there long before,” said Jan Bos, who owns the 1.5 acres that contains about 70 blue heron nests. Bos is among the parties named in the B.C. Supreme Court case, along with the Regional District of North Okanagan, the City of Vernon and the developer of the home. “We aren’t commenting on the legal


— Jan Bos

part,” said Patrick Nicol, RDNO chairperson. “You have to have empathy for everyone involved, including the homeowner.” The city is referring all media questions to the Municipal Insurance Association, which is representing Vernon’s interests. Bos has owned the property since the 1980s and it was in the late 1980s that the blue herons began nesting in the cottonwood trees there. “I have been told that it’s the only place in North America away from the ocean where there is a heronry,” said Bos.

“I have a number of people who come from all over to photograph the birds. I want to preserve a blue listed species (at risk).” In 1991, Bos signed a restrictive covenant with RDNO to protect the site and ensure no development would occur. The covenant prevents anything from occurring there, including the removal of trees. “Protection of habitat is the No. 1 issue for all species,” said Nicol. In return for the restrictive covenant, Bos has been provided with 40 per cent tax relief. Conflict arose, though, as adjacent

properties began to develop. Bos says there was supposed to be a buffer zone under city rules but he claims it has been infringed on over the years. “All of the developers knew about the restrictive covenant. They knew the trees were there.” Instead of possibly removing trees in the heronry, Bos’ suggestion is for the house to be moved. “The city should have never allowed it to be rebuilt (after the 2010 incident),” he said. “If they remove these trees, the heronry is gone. Others (property owners) will demand the same thing.” Legal counsel for the insurance company could not be reached for comment by The Morning Star.

Wanna know a secret?

can’t believe the government is invading my privacy! We might as well be living in Russia!” said the guy in aisle three into his cellphone. I don’t know if the NSA could hear him, but everyone else in the Shop and Go Away could. And he’s worried about his privacy? The guy was still ranting and raving about his privacy at the checkout counter where he pulled out his Shop and Go Away “loyalty card” to save 35 cents on a can of tuna. The loyalty card will instantly tell the Shop and Go Away’s giant computer that he likes tuna and that he shops at 5:35 p.m. on Fridays, which it will add to all Jim Mullen the other information they’ve collected on him over the years. “The government’s got everyone’s phone number and they’re spying on us,” he whined into the phone at the top of his lungs. Of course, every telemarketer in the world has his phone number, as well as every credit card company, bank, insurance company and every other business he’s ever dealt with. And, unless he’s asked for an unlisted number, it’s in that super-secret document called a phone book. Did he forget that he gave Shop and Go Away his very private name, address and phone number when he signed up for their card? By the time he’s left the store, their computer will have sold his name to every tuna distributor in the country, and in a couple of weeks he will start wondering why he’s getting a glossy, two-page flier called “Tuna and You” in the mail. When he drives away from the store, it will be in a car with state-issued license plates on it and with a state-issued driver’s license in

his back pocket, which has his height, weight, eye color, address and picture on it. When he gets home, he’ll sign into his Facebook account -- which lists his birthday, all his friends, his hobbies and pictures of every place he’s ever been -- to complain about how his privacy has been invaded. He may blog and tweet about it, too. While he’s Googling the words “invasion of privacy,” little ads will show up on the side of his search window featuring products he’s searched for or read about in the past because they keep track of that so they can sell ads. Then he’ll relax a little in front of the TV, watching the very private Kardashians or the very private “Duck Dynasty” guys or the very private Real Housewives as they reveal the most intimate moments of their lives in front of millions of people. His cable company will keep track of what he’s watching so it can figure out a way to charge him more to watch his favorite shows someday. What’s really odd is that the NSA knows much less about you than your grocery store, your cable company, your credit card company or the DMV -- and the NSA tried to keep the little they did know about you, well, secret. Until a privacy advocate told everyone. It seems the one thing that privacy advocates aren’t very good at is keeping things private. Anyone who goes on national television to talk about how much he loves and respects privacy is doing it wrong. It’s like streaking to protest nudity. Within a day we’ll know where you went to middle school, who your girlfriend was, how much you made, that you never finished high school and what hotel you’re staying at. At this point, you should be more worried about CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC than the NSA. Contact Jim Mullen at JimMullenBooks. com.

A video posted to YouTube of a bear entering a pickup truck by unlatching the doors might be funny for viewers safely ensconced in their concrete and glass condos, but encounters with wildlife in the city rarely end well. For the animals. It seems every spring there are sightings of bears in urban neighbourhoods ambling through backyards and down alleys tipping over garbage cans, pawing at bird feeders. Recently, a deer somehow managed to wander through the busy streets of New Westminster for hours before conservation officers were finally notified. Sadly the otherwise healthy and robust deer didn’t survive the shot from a tranquilizer gun. Ungulates like deer don’t react well to tranquilizing drugs, said Dave Cox of the Conservation Officer Service. The stress of dodging traffic, barking dogs and curious humans probably didn’t help. One of the great allures of living in B.C. is the vast natural wilderness that begins right in our backyard. It’s easy to be at a grocery store in the morning and then having a picnic in the middle of a first or second growth forest, surrounded by mountains and trees for as far as the eye can see in the afternoon. Odds are there’s creatures amongst those trees. And sometimes they wander out of those woods and into our streets. At first blush it may seem an infringement on our space, but we have to remember their ancestors were here long before us. We’re encroaching on territories and behaviours bred into them for thousands of years. We need to respect their coexistence with us. – Black Press

A better way to pay for water

he spring rains are here. Our reservoirs are spilling over because of the abundance of water this year, and we are even having flooding issues as a result of that. I wonder then, why is it that we in Vernon pay more than double the national average for water? It seems odd to me that on a year like this, when our reservoirs are filled to the brim, that in only a few months a majority of lawns in this town will be completely dead because it is unaffordable for many families to maintain a living lawn. I would like to make the following economic suggestion. Perhaps the city should charge for water based on the amount of water available. The amount charged could reflect the watering restriction tiers. For example, if we have an abundance of water available, we could

have the prices set low so most families could afford to maintain a healthy lawn and garden. If we have a dry year and have water restrictions in place, then the price of

in the news again Letters to the editor have been sent to this newspaper in the past regarding Sylvia Browne, the so-called psychic who says she communicates with the spirits of dead people. This is not just harmless entertainment. While it might be fun to consult a fairground psychic about whether or not you're going to win the lottery, Browne's customers are often people who are suffering through trauma or grief, and telling desperate people that you can communicate with their dead loved ones is not in the same category at all. Despite her numerous false predictions, she has in the past been consulted by police departments and the families of victims of abductions. Visit for plenty of examples. Another helpful site is the James Randi Educational Foundation at Browne's lack of psychic ability is in the news once again. Amanda Berry was abducted as a teenager in 2003 and kept captive along with two other women in Cleveland, Ohio. She managed to escape on May 6 and I hope she is on the road to recovering from her traumatic experience. In 2004, Sylvia Browne appeared on the Montel Williams Show and told Amanda Berry's mother that her daughter was dead. Imagine that for a moment: Your daughter has been abducted and

water would rise to reflect this. If the dry year continued and our reservoirs were continuing to drop, we could expand the restrictions and increase the price of water

you are told that she is dead. This kind of pronouncement is not something that should be made lightly, or for the purposes of entertainment. It is not something that anyone should say without good evidence. Sylvia Browne has demonstrated, once again, that she lacks psychic powers. She performed in Vernon in April, and in Kelowna last spring. If she ever comes back, I very much hope that people will remember the suffering of Amanda Berry's mother, instead of buying tickets for Browne's show. Zena Ryder, Centre for inquiry - Okanagan ReaCtiOn tO pROtest It concerns me to read that some people are so worried about the safety of genetically modified foods that they have taken to the streets. I'd like to add to the conversation by providing some information that these people may not be aware of, but which may help relieve their concerns. Canadians have access to one of the safest and most abundant food supplies in the world. All crops, including crops that have been genetically modified, are subject to Canada's strict regulatory standards. Extensive safety reviews are completed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada to ensure all crops are

again. I am in no way advocating that we lower prices so residents can waste water. I firmly believe that water is a precious resource and should be used in a responsible and conservative manner. I am simply proposing that we make it affordable so more people can afford to water their lawns in a responsible manner. Recently, city council stated that they believe that it is their responsibility to ensure clean air for the citizens of Vernon when it was dealing with an idling bylaw. What happens to our air quality in the summer when more than 50 per cent of residential lawns die off? We are talking about hundreds, if not thousands of acres, of air cleaning plant life becoming useless. Simply a suggestion for discussion. Joel van der Molen

safe for people, animals and the environment. Crops improved through modern plant breeding enjoy a remarkable food safety record, having been grown for more than a decade and eaten by billions of people worldwide. In fact, regulatory agencies around the world, as well as highly regarded international organizations like the World Health Organization, have all endorsed the safety of these enhanced crops. Canadian farmers choose to grow genetically improved varieties of corn, canola, soybeans and other crops because they offer many benefits, including increased yields and improved pest control. This is good for farmers but also benefits the environment by allowing farmers to grow more food on less land and leave valuable green spaces and wildlife intact. Farmers are also able to minimize or even eliminate tilling the soil to control weeds, which enriches the soil and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Consumers benefit at the grocery store by having safe food that's affordable with the help of plant biotechnology. Canadians save almost 60 per cent on their grocery bills. For more information I would encourage readers to visit our website at, as well as Health Canada's website for more information. Lorne hepworth, president, CropLife Canada

bike Lanes Every day I walk my dog down the sidewalk on Okanagan Landing Road and we always have to dodge people on bicycles. It is annoying because there are bike lanes on both sides of the road that are rarely used. Maybe it would be safer for my dog and I to walk in the bike lane. Joe Luchak

Lake Country officials want assurances that a recreational corridor will be available immediately. Council will ask the Ministry of Transportation to immediately reduce the speed limit on the current Highway 97 along Wood Lake as soon as the new upper-level highway opens some time this summer. “It will take about a year for (ownership of) the highway to devolve to us and the province will still have control until then,” said Mayor James Baker. “We want people to enjoy slower traffic there.” Until the municipality actually owns the roadway along Wood Lake and can make traffic-related decisions, Coun. Owen Dickie insists there is a need for the ministry to ensure the safety of residents. “The vast majority of citizens want the parkway to include safe areas for pedestrians and cyclists,” he said.

Water debate on tap in Spall roger knox Morning Star Staff

While admitting they are “sort of ” in the water business, the Township of Spallumcheen is hesitant to create and add a municipal version of a water district. A subdivision application for Chickadee Ridge Development asks that the water system proposed for the property “be processed and included under the operating permit of the Township of Spallumcheen.” “The system would be designed and constructed by the applicant (Lorne Major) to the standards required by the township and Interior Health,” wrote Brian Monaghan of Monaghan Engineering and Consulting Ltd. who is the project manager. “Upon completion, commissioning and acceptance of the system by the township, the water system would then be turned over to the township.” The application was originally made to the council of the day in 2009, which included a public hearing and third reading of official community plan and zoning amendment bylaws. The proposed subdivision is within the non-Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) portion of the property currently zoned agricultural and, as was mentioned at a lengthy public hearing on the application,

“This is one of the complexities of this patchwork quilt of water districts.”

would be serviced by a private community sewer and water system. Major proposed to develop 22 lots that would be zoned residential single family, two lots that would be zoned small holdings and two lots that would be zoned country residential. It also called for dedicated parkland on the west side of Alderson Creek. The application has since changed to develop 25 lots, 22 of which would be residential single family and three would be country residential. Concern was expressed by many residents at the 2009 public hearing about water to service the proposed subdivision. There were also many letters of support for the plan. The bylaw was never fully adopted as conditions for the subdivision were not met. Monaghan stated a report prepared by Kala Geosciences Ltd. supports the application, and concludes there is adequate

water supply, consistent with the township’s subdivision bylaw, for the proposed development. Spallumcheen administrator Greg Betts told council the township has 14 water districts they are currently trying to consolidate, assist or reduce. If council agreed to Monaghan’s request, the township would be setting up a municipal version of a water district with the township requested to take it over. “We are in the water business, sort of, but if we’re adding to it we’re going to have to have capacity in terms of staff and expertise,” said Betts, who asked council for, and was granted, a chance to review the request and lay out several options for council. “This is one of the complexities of this patchwork quilt of water districts that are inhibiting or making far more complex your management of growth and development,” he said.

Thunder dee booms with Brodie Graeme Corbett Morning Star Staff

The Langley Thunder boasts the Western Lacrosse Association’s best defence in the early going, and Vernon’s Brodie MacDonald is huge piece of that. It’s only nine games into the junior A season, and MacDonald leads the league in both goals-against average (7.25) and save percentage (.822). Surprisingly mobile for a 6-foot-7, 245-pounder, he credits his teammates for allowing him to play his style. “I’m just playing my game – staying big, seeing the ball well,” said MacDonald, 23. “Our system and myself work very well together. My defence is a big reason I am able to feel comfortable challenging the ball.” Langley has parlayed its air-tight defence into second place at 5-3-1. They might be in the WLA penthouse if it weren’t for the league’s worst offence (8.55 goals per game). However, MacDonald had no doubt the Thunder offence will find its rhythm. “The offence has been a notoriously slow starter in seasons past,” he said. “The only thing worrying about the offence would do is jeopardize our ability to do our jobs (on defence) properly.” Once the offence does start to click, MacDonald believes the Thunder have the talent to make a serious push for a third straight Mann Cup appearance. They were unsuccessful in their last two national championships, falling to the Brampton Excelsiors in the organization’s Mann Cup debut 2011, and to the Peterborough Lakers last year. “We have only gotten better since our first Mann experience,” said MacDonald. “I believe we are the best in the west again, and I don’t think there’s anyone in our room who would disagree.” While MacDonald has long had the physical tools to fill the crease, Langley assistant coach Fred Klomp says MacDonald is also rounding out his mental game as he matures. Klomp points to Langley’s season opener when MacDonald got shelled for seven goals by the host Maple Ridge Burrards in the first period. Rather than wilt, MacDonald came back and allowed zero goals in the second and three in the third to give Langley a 13-10 win. “It was a jammed building in Maple Ridge and he singlehandedly took the game over,” said Klomp. “He’s still got a bit of a temper, but he’s really become mentally prepared.” MacDonald held backup duty for the NLL Edmonton Rush last season, compiling a 1-2 record with an 8.03 GAA and .795 SAV. Despite the limited role, just being around the pro team helped his — Brodie confidence. “I’ve gotten a lot of great experience in Edmonton over past two seasons,” he said. “Great guys and

I am now to a point in my NLL career where I believe I can get more starts. That is something I will have to discuss with the coaching staff and management this offseason.” Added Klomp: “Unfortunately he sits behind Aaron (Bold) in Edmonton, so he doesn’t get too much time in the NLL. But everyone knows he’s very good.” MacDonald And if the WLA suddenly has no need of towering, fleet-footed netminders that play with an edge, MacDonald has some legitimate wood-

Other shop projects include stand-up paddleboards and custom cabinets and furniture. “I stretched the frame (on the motorcycle), lowered it and hard-tailed it,” he said. “It’s a fun pastime that, at the moment, is full time as I’m laid off from the cable business,” said MacDonald. “I’ve learnt a lot of things from my dad and my two grandfathers in the shop. I’ve been puttering around since I was probably four years old.”

Vernon’s Curtis Lazar is projected as a firstround pick in the NHL Entry Draft next Sunday in New Jersey. interview with Lazar on the Oil Kings’ website. He’s such a positive, humble, happy-go-lucky young man who will make any NHL team better. Edmonton head coach Derek Laxdal offered some sage advice to Lazar when he struggled out of the WHL gate last fall. “I told him not to worry about the ranking; focus on the way you play. When it comes to the draft, there’s gonna be an NHL team that likes the way you play, and from what I’m understanding, there’s 30 NHL teams out there that like the way you play.” I have known Lazar since he was 15 and he’s mature above his years. Whenever he got the chance, he was at the rink watching his siblings play. He’s polite, respectful and likeable. “First of all, he’s a great kid, and a highly talented player,” said Oil Kings’ GM Bob Green, on the team’s website. “He plays the game the right way all over the ice, he’s very responsible away from the puck, he plays a physical game and likes to finish his checks, and he’s got the ability to finish.” Green says the 18-year-old’s intangibles and character are what sets him apart from many others. “He’ll do anything to win, he’s a highly competitive kid who’ll do whatever it takes. He’s not selfish, and he’ll change his game and role to whatever he needs to do to help the team win.” Lazar attended the 20th NHL Combine last week at the Westin Bristol Place and



the Toronto International Centre. Key sponsors included Reebok, which outfitted the prospects head to toe, and Gatorade. “I met with 26 teams for an average of five to 10 minutes each,” Lazar told me. “I didn’t get asked any weird questions. Anaheim asked me what my favourite animal was and I said, ‘I’m sorry but the mallard duck isn’t my favourite.’ “Colorado asked me, ‘Do you know when we pick?’ I jokingly said, ‘You guys are somewhere near the top aren’t you?’ I asked them if anybody had got that question wrong and they said, ‘You’d be surprised.’” Lazar hasn’t seen all his fitness testing results, but official stats show him placing fifth in the Upper Body 4 Kg Ball event. “You had your back to the wall and you threw the medicine ball as far as you could (he tossed it 227 inches).” Especially appealing to NHL scouts is Lazar’s knack for scoring anytime, anywhere. He was second in team powerplay snipes with 14 and added two shorties. His past will also enhance his value at the draft table, where Vernon-based scouts like Dennis Holland, Craig Demetrick, George Fargher and Marty Stein will be sitting. Lazar was taken by Edmonton second overall in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft behind Alex Forsberg, who went to the Prince George Cougars. He captained Team B.C. to the gold medal at the 2011 Canada Winter Games, and played for Team Pacific in the 2012 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. Lazar helped Canada’s Under-18 team strike gold at the 2012 Memorial for Ivan Hlinka. At the Canada Winter Games, he registered a whopping 12 goals and 17 points in only six games, breaking Steve Stamkos’ goal-scoring record and Sidney Crosby’s record for points in the tournament. Just for the record, Madison Bowey of the Kelowna Rockets was also asked the animal query at the Combine. He is pegged as an early second-rounder. “The Bruins asked me what my favourite animal was, so that was a little different than the others,” Bowey told Black Press Sports. “But right away, I said ‘a bear’. I was all over that one, so I think that (interview) went pretty well.” Viper grad Adam Tambellini, of the Surrey Eagles, had the lowest body-fat percentage at 5.0. Jonathan Drouin of the Halifax Mooseheads, Central Scouting’s third-ranked skater, was second at 5.4 per cent. His teammate, No. 2-ranked skater Nathan MacKinnon, was seventh at 7.6 per cent.

ummer vacation for Curtis Lazar and family will be a fantasy trip of sorts. The six of them will stay in a hotel near Times Square and do some sightseeing around New York. Next Sunday, folks Dave and Karen, and their other kids, Jenna, Ryan and Cory, will head to the Prudential Centre in Newark, New Jersey, for the NHL Entry Draft. Curtis, who, depending on which rankings outfit you follow, is rated 12th (International Scouting Services), 20th (Central Scouting North America slaters) or 32nd (sportscaster Craig Button). After a 38-goal regular season with the WHL Edmonton Oil Kings, and another nine playoff snipes, Lazar goes in the lottery known as a heart-and-soul forward with speed, Kevin Mitchell size and scoring touch. Home in Vernon until leaving Thursday for New York (his family goes Tuesday), Lazar lost sleep worrying about the draft rankings early in the Oil Kings’ winning season. “I was thinking too much about the rankings and now, I’m at that point where I can focus on the draft. I’ve been laying in bed at night wondering ‘What if?’ It doesn’t matter what team drafts me, but some people are hoping I go to the Canucks and that would be great. One thing for sure is I’ll be going to a prospect camp a week after the draft so that’s exciting.” The Canucks choose 24th, three spots ahead of the Maple Leafs. Hockey people say Lazar boasts an NHL-quality shot. A sign of such a trait came when Lazar was 10 and won a hardest shot competition, getting clocked at 110 kilomotres an hour. He used to break doors and windows at his home in Salmon Arm at the same age. “I broke a door in the basement and garage with a wrist shot, and I broke a window in the basement on a slapshot,” Lazar laughingly told Roger Knox of the Salmon Arm Observer, in 2005. “The window wasn’t really my fault. My slapshot hit the crossbar and it broke the window.” Lazar is a threat to score from the outside, but also gets a lot of goals from battling in close for rebounds. He’s a strong skater, he’s always smiling and he’s sound defensively. He was a plus-25 this year. Take a few minutes and watch a video

Massie spirit shines Morning Star Staff

They wore wacky costumes, laughed a lot and played slo-pitch for a fallen friend. The third annual Doug Massie Co-Ed 2-Pitch Tournament drew nine teams to the DND diamonds last weekend and was an overwhelming success. Teams welcomed the hot sunny weather as they donned this year’s theme, ‘Surf ’s Up Beach Wear.’ Doug Massie was a highly popular slo-pitch and soccer player who died of a brain aneurism in August, 2010. “The Massie family had a team, including Doug’s mom and brother playing in it for the first time,” said tourney director Heather Savitsky. “We raised $3,000 for the Doug Massie Bursary fund. KidSport in Vernon will be a recipient of $1,000 from the bursary.” Teams played a two-game round robin to seed them into either the A or B side modified doubleknockout playoff format. Finishing first overall in the round-robin were the Honey Badgers.

Rounding out the A side was New and Used in second, coached by Savitsky and Kelly Jenner. The Renegades (Justin Bednarz) were third, the Beach Boys & Girls (Akbal Mund) fourth and Beeracuda (Cam McIntyre of Kelowna) fifth. In the B side were the following teams: Here for the Beer (Tanis Wiebe) Beer Nutz (Melissa Gauthier), Sandy Balls (Logan Massie) and Pop Tarts (Brad Campbell, Kelowna). A side playoffs saw New and Used fall to the Honey Badgers in the semifinal, and the Renegades, who were undefeated going into the final, lost 17-15 to the Honey Badgers. In the B side semi, Here for the Beer and the Pop Tarts battled it out in the single knockout with the Pop Tarts winning before grounding the undefeated Beer Nutz 18-6 in the final. The Beer Nutz are Doug and Deb Massie’s old team. Savitsky thanked the teams, umpires, sponsors, beer garden workers Jason and Jenn Devries (third straight year) and the Massie family.

We feel we have an excellent venue to attract up to 8,000 fans, with great lighting and sight lines. It just seems to be a great fit for Vernon.” Longworth added the club has a great volunteer base to draw on, as well as a world-class ice-maker in

Shamrocks douse Flames Morning Star Staff

The Armstrong Shamrocks have all but guaranteed themselves the third seed heading into the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League playoffs. The Rocks improved to 4-7-3 after manhandling the shortbenched South Okanagan Flames 11-3 Friday night at NorVal Sports Centre. The win puts them two points clear of the fourth-place Kamloops Venom (4-10-1). Armstrong, who also has a hefty lead in goal differential

(tiebreaker) over the Venom, visited the Vernon Tigers Saturday night at Kal Tire Place. The regular season wraps up Thursday (7:30) at Nor-Val when the Rocks host the Kelowna Raiders, who are league co-leaders with Vernon at 11-3-1. Stephen Ringdal paced the Armstrong offence Friday night with three goals and an assist, helping his team race out to a 4-1 first-period lead. Leading 7-2 after 40 minutes, the Rocks put the game away with four more third-period

Cheshire pounces Morning Star Staff

Tony Cheshire used cat-like reflexes to score twice as Vernon Kal Tire brushed back the Summerland Rockets 6-1 in Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League play Thursday night at Shannon Woods Field in West Kelowna. Cheshire neatly redirected a corner by Rob Parkin, which was first touched by Denis Chabot. The Manchester United fan then finished an unselfish feed from Roger Irving on a 2-on-1 breakaway. Cheshire was named the Buckingham Palace Fish & Chips Man of the Match. Jenne Huberts also bagged a deuce as the Tiremen improved to 8-2. Parkin and Kevin Mitchell added singles, while Bill Clark spoiled Gordie Campbell’s bid for a second-half shutout. Campbell made back-to-back fabulous saves off Peter Toth corkers from in tight. Irving earned the first-half clean sheet.

Neville and Maisie Cave are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this year. Their wedding took place at the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer in Calgary, Alta. The Caves spent 34 years in Calgary, where Nev was a city firefighter and Maisie continued her teaching career after moving from Saskatchewan. Summer vacations were spent in the Okanagan, enjoying boating and camping with their three sons. Upon retirement, the Okanagan was their destination of choice. They moved here in 1987 and have enjoyed 26 years of retirement. They were so fortunate to move into their new home that year, as many others came that same time and soon, these new neighbours became great friends who have remained steadfast through the years. While Calgary was a great place to work and

Soft adventure enticing lauren kramer

Special To The Morning Star

COLORADO - We’d come to Colorado looking for some soft adventure - the kind that everyone in the family could enjoy with minimal risk of injury. We found it just two hours from Denver in Cañon City and Colorado Springs, two towns that contain a playground of canyons, mountains and rivers nestled in the embrace of the magnificent Rockies. With its craggy mountains and gently undulating hills, the state offers lots of opportunity for visitors to explore its nooks and crevices on land, on water and by bike. Here’s our top picks for a getaway in Denver’s ‘back yard.’ Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, Canon City: Boasting one of the world’s highest suspension bridges, Royal Gorge is a great introduction to Colorado’s impressive geological landscape. The steep, granite rock faces that line both sides of the Arkansas River stretch 956 feet from top to bottom, offering inspiring views of Pike’s Peak Mountain and the Sangre De Cristo range. The park has a variety of options for experiencing those views,

summer getaways

including my son’s favorite choice, the Royal Rush Skycoaster, a roller-coaster type swing best suited for those looking for an adrenaline rush. Others prefer the relative calm of the incline railway, wherein visitors descend to the river along a railway, encased in a cage-like structure that passes within touching distance of the dramatic colors and contours of the gorge’s granite. Raft the Arkansas River, Canon City: Taking kids river rafting can be challenging but the Arkansas River’s calmer whitewater makes it a safer option than many other rivers. We geared up at Echo Canyon River Expeditions and headed out to Bighorn Sheep Canyon for some class two and a handful of

class three rapids. The ride was a pleasant drift downstream with just a few splashy channels and just a handful of the adrenaline pumping rapids. The relaxing ride downstream gave us a chance to appreciate the beauty of the gorge with its amber and brown granite, and to listen to stories about the bootlegger who used to make moonshine not far from the water’s edge and whose still remains rusting where he left it. Bike from Pike’s Peak, Colorado Springs: The baldfaced peak of Pike’s Peak Mountain raises its head from as far as Cañon City, and though

you can drive or take the train up and down, you get a better appreciation of its contours, its beauty and its five distinct ecological zones by biking down its curving perimeter. At the mountain’s base the weather was hot but by the time we’d driven to the top, where the air is much thinner, we were ready for sweaters and gloves. Donning helmets we angled our bikes downhill and followed Harvey Heasten, a spritely 72-yearold bike guide with Challenge Unlimited for the 20-mile ride. In many places the road is remarkably steep and we clutched the brakes

to control the speed of our descent around switchbacks and hairpin turns. There were frequent stops along the way to admire the Cheyenne Canyon, Colorado’s eastern plains and Wild Dog Mountain, much of it still black and burned from the summer wildfires. Moving between alpine, montana, foothills and prairie Eco zones, there was lots of variation in flora and fauna along the way, including statuesque bighorn sheep that gazed at us from the sheer mountain slopes.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Rather than suppressing your frustrations over how another is handling a critical issue, find a suitable way to openly discuss your grievances. Nothing will change until you speak up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The poor behavior of an arrogant friend doesn’t have to spoil a social event. Simply smile and disengage yourself from this person’s presence, even it’s just long enough to calm down. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Don’t allow yourself to get involved in a contest, especially if you’re operating at a disadvantage. If you can’t overcome the odds, walk away and do something else. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Jumping to conclusions makes it difficult for you to honestly evaluate someone else’s position. One of the worst things you can do is make a judgment call based on limited information. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) A need for instant gratification will severely distort your sense of values. Instead of satisfying an impulsive desire, you should shop around a bit. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The support from another that you were counting on might not be forthcoming. Make sure you have a Plan B ready to go. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Before generously offering to help another with a complicated endeavor, you need find out what you’re

getting into. Don’t bite off more than you can chew. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) If you suspect a friend might throw a monkey wrench in your plans, you don’t have to exclude him or her. Just let this person know that the majority will rule. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Make sure you don’t take credit for doing something in which you only played a minor part. It could be an embarrassment for you later when the full truth comes out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) It’s OK to start looking ahead to the future, but not to the degree that you totally ignore what is going on right now. If you are to succeed, both time frames must be considered. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Prudence is a must in the management of your financial resources, but not to the point that you deny yourself everything that brings you pleasure. To be happy, balance your affairs.

Hormones Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes, weight gain, mood swings and low energy. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment uses bio-identical, plant based hormones that exactly duplicate hormones your body produces.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder SORRY, PARTNER, I PLAYED TOO QUICKLY Josh Billings, the pen name of Henry Wheeler Shaw, was a humorist who died in 1885. He said, “One half of the troubles in this life can be traced to saying yes too quickly and not saying no soon enough.” Perhaps one half of the mistakes at the bridge table can be traced to playing too quickly and not taking enough time to think things through. That would be the case for many players in today’s deal. Defending against four hearts, East wins the first trick with his club jack. How would many continue? What should East do? South’s two-heart

response, in a suit higher ranking than his partner’s, guarantees at least a five-card suit. (With only four hearts, South would usually make a negative double.) Many defenders would win with the club jack, cash the club king, and continue with the club ace. What would happen? If South ruffs low, West overruffs and shifts to a diamond for down one. If South ruffs high, he eventually loses a heart and a diamond to fall to defeat. But a South who paused for a few moments at trick three would see the advantage in discarding his unavoidable diamond loser. Then the contract would make.

East should cash his diamond ace at trick three (or two) before continuing clubs. This defeats the contract. The defenders get two clubs, one diamond and one heart. Do not try for a trump promotion until, if possible, you have taken all of your side-suit tricks.

City of Vernon crews have put the finishing touches on the newly constructed Kin Beach overflow parking lot. The lot is located on Tronson Road just east of Lakeshore Road. “The 40-stall parking area will be open to the public this weekend and was constructed to alleviate summer parking congestion issues on Lakeshore Road adjacent to Sandy Beach,” said James Rice, public works manager.

One point has been added, another amended, to the Township of Spallumcheen’s complaint policy. Previously, there were three items where complaints with respect to bylaw infractions would only be pursued. After deliberations with staff, council added a fourth item: the complaint is reviewed by the chief administrative officer (CAO) and determined to be an obvious and urgent health and safety matter. “It was proposed that wording be added to the policy,” said Greg Betts, the township’s CAO. A second point was clarified. Infractions will now only be pursued if there are two separate complaints from two separate properties filed. The remainder of the point, if the complainant resides on a property directly affected by or adjacent to the offending property where no other neighbours exist. The other points about the complainant filing a complaint in writing to the township, and the complaint initiated by municipal management with consultation/consent from the CAO prior to it being referred to the bylaw enforcement officer for investigation, remain unchanged in the policy.

When funding was cut for his school’s music program, Jim Lagerquist found a solution. A student at Charles Bloom secondary school and an avid musician, Lagerquist turned an empty portable at the Lumby school into a music room. “Growing up, I knew some of the older kids at Charles Bloom who told me all about the music program, but when I started Grade 7 at Bloom, it had already been cut,” said Lagerquist, who has just graduated. After joining band in Grade 10 and getting involved in student leadership, he joined forces with Connor Whiskin, who suggested the pair start an after-school jam session. With the support and encouragement of teacher Leon Kopy, the program got under way. “At that point, the only music we had was (school music festival) Bloomstock,” said Lagerquist. “There were not many who could play instruments, but last year we had enough for a beginner and a more advanced program.” For Eli Goddu, who is going into Grade 10, it has been a chance to jam with others who love music. “It was more of a guitar jam than guitar lessons and that appealed to me,” he said. “I had taken guitar lessons for a year and it wasn’t helping me with theory and one day I decided to check this out. Jim and Connor would teach us music theory. “It’s been great — playing with other people is a whole different experience than just playing on your own.” Grade 11 student Jason Dahlmann plays several instruments, including guitar, keyboards, drums and flute. “I’ve never taken lessons in my life, I’ve just played in my room but I’ve come back to jam every year,” he said. Guitarist and drummer Steve Flack, also a grad this year, came and checked out the jam sessions as a way of learning more. “I don’t really have a lot of music background, but when I moved here from Prince George a few years ago, I started playing again,” he said. Although all of the young musicians at Bloom see themselves playing for the rest of their lives, they all expect to also hold down day jobs. “I would like to make a career out of this, even if it’s just opening a music store or something along those lines,” said Goddu, who plans a career in the trades. Dahlmann’s dream is to make a full-time living playing music, but is also realistic about the chances of that happening. “To do that, I would have to live in poverty or be independently wealthy,” he said. When asked to name their influences in music, all point to well-known purveyors of classic rock, such as Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix, while Goddu is also a blues aficionado and Dahlmann dips into progressive rock and jazz. Charles Bloom principal Ken Gatzke gives credit to both Kopy and Lagerquist for the success of the program. “Mr. Kopy, a senior humanities teacher, had been working with our students to give them an opportunity to play some music — he’s volunteered and just done this on his own time,” said Gatzke. “Jimmy Lagerquist had the initiative and made it happen, Mr. Kopy has coordinated this, but the lessons were Jimmy’s call.

Eli Goddu (left), Steve Flack, Jason Dahlmann and Jim Lagerquist jam at Charles Bloom secondary school in Lumby, part of the weekly music sessions at the school.

“It’s so important for our young people to keep the fine arts alive in our society.” — Ken Gatzke “Because we didn’t have the traditional music program, I was always looking for ways for kids to have that opportunity, so through our student leadership class and through our staff, who do a fantastic job, we engaged in something called Bloomstock.” Gatzke said while Bloomstock is a competition, the objective of the event is really for kids to showcase their talents. It’s an event that Lagerquist has supported with enthusiasm. “He’s really strongly given back and because Jim is such a respected and trustworthy student, this music program kind of came out of a little bit of Bloomstock, a little bit of Jim’s talent and a little bit of Mr. Kopy’s talent and Jim just took it and ran,” said Gatzke. “And this is exactly what we are looking for in students to become leaders. “It’s so important for our young people to keep the fine arts alive in our society, and there’s Jim doing it all on his own and making a great difference in our school.” The jam sessions are held every Tuesday after school in what was an unused portable. The room is scattered with a few old desks and stools, the black boards filled with an array

of musical notes and scores, as well as inspirational quotes. “We try and find songs that are easy to jam to because we didn’t realize how difficult it is for some people to improvise, which is all me and Connor do when we’re playing,” said Lagerquist. “But we try and teach by doing — jamming — not just giving a lesson. Anyone can learn Stairway to Heaven, but it’s about taking it to the next level.” A guitar player, pianist, drummer and singer, Lagerquist was a participant in the recent District Project Scholarship Showcase and Competition, for which he earned a $1,000 award, one of eight scholarships and bursaries he earned as a graduate. “I started playing when I was seven when my parents bought me the old guitar from the church, it was not in the best shape and the bridge was glued on, but I loved it and played Smoke on the Water over and over again.” He has plans to head north for a few months to earn some money and then will return to concentrate on his band, Gallon’s Corner. “We’ve had a record producer come and see us practise and he liked what he heard, so they now want to record one of our original songs,” he said. “I want to play music for the rest of my life, whether I make money or not is another story.” With Lagerquist and Flack graduating this year, the program will be headed up by Quinn Gatzke. And it’s likely that future program participants will continue to follow Lagerquist’s golden rule of jam sessions: “No noodling while others are playing.”

A new adventure begins

y darling is retiring. After 34 years with Interior Health he is going to retire and spend his days doing other activities. Meetings may be at coffee shops, project planning will involve docks, not new services for those with mental illness or substance use. Life is going to be different.

Learn about the Registered Disability Savings Plan at Independent Living Vernon The RDSP is meant to help Canadians and their families save for the future. You should consider opening an RDSP if you have a long-term disability and are:

✔ under age 60 (you must apply before the end of the calendar year in which you turn 59 years old); ✔ a Canadian resident with a Social Insurance Number (SIN); ✔ eligible for the Disability Tax Credit; and ✔ looking for a long-term savings plan.

➧ ➧ ➧ ➧

To help you save, the Government will pay a matching Canada Disability Savings Grant of up to $3,500 a year on your contributions. The Government will also pay a Canada Disability Savings Bond of up to $1,000 a year into the RDSPs of low-income and modest-income Canadians. No contributions are necessary to receive the Bond. Grants and Bonds are paid into the RDSP until the end of the calendar year in which you turn 49 years old. Money paid out of an RDSP will not affect your eligibility for federal benefits, and will have little or no impact on provincial social assistance payments.

The Way I see IT

Michele Blais

He first said he was retiring in 2010 or was throwing around the idea, and then that changed when there was some restructuring and new projects to see through. The work in Interior Health will never be done, there are always new challenges and projects, and day to day business to carry on. It will carry on with others who are as committed and caring. So now he will experience change in a new way. I am personally glad that he is retiring so he can have more fun in his life. He was way more responsible in his youth than I and went right from university to his career. I got sidetracked in my 20s, travelled lots, lived in Ft. McMurray, Los Angeles, Toronto, London, Key West,

Stress free pet care in the comfort of your home

Banff, sailed the Caribbean, drove across the States and had many adventures in between, while I finished my degree. Then we came to Vernon and I settled quite nicely into motherhood, career and community life. I am not retiring. He has a long list of what he would like to do and I think learning to prepare delicious and healthy meals is at the top. When your work has been such a big part of your life, not going to work every day and having that “work identity” can require a transition period as you learn to fill your time with new activities, and find new roles for yourself. Lumberjack may be one for my darling, as we have a great deal of work to be done at the cottage involving trees. As a golfer, he will have more time to spend on the fairways now. He’ll be the captain as he cruises around Okanagan Lake and other local lakes on the pontoon boat. He’ll be a volunteer as he finds his way into different

organizations; there are many options. It is an interesting time in our lives and I think, “where did the time go?” We were in our 20s discovering our way with bold ideas, 30s parenting and making the way in the career, moving up in the 40s and becoming more sure of ourselves, 50s leading, confident and now 60 and a totally new adventure lies ahead. (I am not 60, he is. I am much younger.) The way I see it many people work very hard for decades to get to this place of “retirement” and what I hope is that we are able to enjoy great health in order to enjoy having carefree days or what I have mostly heard is extremely busy days, since so many say “I don’t know I ever fit work into my schedule now that I am retired.” There are wonderful days ahead to have fun, enjoy the freedom of choice and continue to make a difference in your community. And I hope he goes barefoot more often, climbs more mountains, and eats ice cream.

missed work, was still excited about what he did, still advocated consistently for clientcentered service, and respected and admired the people he worked with. He saw a lot of change over those years including who was signing his paycheque, as the health system in B.C. and in our area has gone through lots of change. Change is inevitable and you have to be able to work with it, accept, embrace and move forward if you want to be part of the solutions and make a difference. If I may say so I have a great deal of respect for the work he has done and his commitment to improving the lives of those living with mental illness and substance use. Making the decision to retire can be a challenge, as there are many factors to consider, financial always looms in the forefront, your own health, and the work you do. Is it a good time to retire — will this work that I have been doing be completed, if you are on a special project.

The BC SPCA is inviting animal lovers to start registering today for the annual Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, being hosted in 34 communities across the province on Sept. 8.

A senior’s lament


got this e-mail the other day, parts of which I’ve plagiarized unabashedly because I think it probably expresses some of the feelings many of us have: “The Cellphone When I bought my Blackberry, I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1,800 employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and Vernon pc users’ club communicates with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up under duress for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, my 13 grand kids and two great-grand kids could communicate with me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of space. The Twitter My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything except the bowel movements of the entire next generation. I am not ready to live like this. I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag. When I’m asked if I tweet my answer is “No, but I fart quite a bit!” The GPS The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get lost every now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I keep that in a box under my tool bench with the Blue tooth (it’s red) phone I am supposed to use when I drive.

computer question

The Cordless To be perfectly frank, I am still trying to learn how to use the cordless phones in our house. We have had them for four years, but I still haven’t figured out how I lose three phones all at once and have to run around digging under chair cushions, checking bathrooms, and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone rings. The Bags The world is just getting too complex for me. They even mess me up every time I go to the grocery store. You would think they could settle on something themselves but this sudden “Paper or Plastic?” “Paper or plastic?” I just say, “Doesn’t matter to me. I’m bi-sacksual.” Then it’s their turn to stare at me with a blank look. The Remotes We senior citizens don’t need any more gadgets. The TV remote and the garage door remote are about all we can handle.” Have a great summer and be sure to take your kids or grandkids to at least one holiday spot with no cell tower nearby — it will drive them crazy! nnn We live at a time when hardly a day passes before some amazing discovery or invention is revealed in the media. Take the recent news when we have seen a handgun that could actually kill things created on a 3D printer, a product from Google that facilitates hands-free photography by being able to take a picture with the blink of an eye and a material made with the help of Scotch


tape that could in time replace silicon in electronic devices. The last is called “graphene,” which was actually discovered in 2004 at the University of Manchester by two physicists who isolated a single layer of graphene using Scotch tape before going on to demonstrate its remarkable conductive and resilient properties. Graphene is a one-atom thick layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice that is one million times thinner than a human hair, but 300 times stronger than steel and 1,000 times more conductive than silicon. Moreover, because it is only one atom thick, it is perfectly transparent and flexible. Initial applications will find graphene replacing the relatively expensive metal, indium selenide in solar cells followed by products such as cell phones integrated into the likes of the clothes we wear, pieces of paper and in windows (the glass, not the MS type). And since graphene is transparent (it’s only one atom thick!) it will be found anywhere there is a need to embed electronic displays in our surroundings. Maybe that plastic gun we heard about the other day could be printed from invisible graphene. Now that would be scary! The Vernon PC Users’ Club meets the second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Schubert Centre in the cafeteria. Meetings have wrapped up for the summer and will resume in September.

Area artists highlight work atop Silver Star Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

Mountain bikes are being hauled up Silver Star as the resort gets ready for its official summer opening this week. Also opening is Gallery Odin’s annual summer exhibition. Located on Silver Star’s knoll, Odin is featuring the works of 22 artists, with paintings, sculpture, ceramic works and more that reflect the diverse range of artistic talent in the Okanagan and B.C., said Maria Molnar, who runs the gallery with her husband Kalman. “This year we are featuring three different artists in our three rooms. Each has an individual and unique feel,” said Molnar. “They each produce very different work.” In one room is Sara Lige’s Every Picture Tells a Story. The Kelowna artist’s work at Odin signals her return to the studio and her first exhibition since graduating with her master’s in art from UBC Okanagan in 2012. The work features monoprints and mixed media, many of which use a leaf motif. “Thematically, my work reflects basic life issues —emotion, spirituality and memory. It is inner-directed art created out of my thoughts and personal experience,” said Lige, who is the founder of Cool Arts for artists with disabilities. Julia Trops is a returning artist to Odin who will be showing her stylized abstract landscapes in The Journey. The Kelowna-based artist just returned from an artist residency in Can Serrat, just outside of Barcelona, Spain, where she says she was inspired by the mountainous landscape,

Kelowna artist Julia trops shows paintings she did while on a trip to spain at Gallery odin’s summer exhibition, opening this week. with its olive groves and almond trees. Trops, who is the founder of the Erotic Art Show, about to be held at Vernon’s Sparkling Hill Resort, used a tactile process in the resulting paintings from her residency. “I painted with my hands and fingers,” she said. “I liked the immediacy, the direct contact with paint, feeling it between my fingers, seeing each stroke on the canvas, shaping with light and colour. I layered colour upon colour,

creating vibrations and relationships, some jarring and some in harmony, just like human interactions.” Lake Country artist Julie Elliot’s Union Of Opposites features 18 large geometric abstracts in bold colours. “My process starts with a word, a phrase or an idea that resonates with me and invites exploration,” she said. “I then listen to the work as I weave together loose spontaneous layers

with layers that are carefully considered.” Elliot, who showed her Buy B.C. installation on the Okanagan apple industry at the 2011 ArtWalk, says she has been preoccupied with the union of opposites, both as a concept to explore and as a process for painting. “I’m striving for paintings that are both complex and simple, meaningful for me and open-ended for the viewer, painted with abandon and built slowly over time with much reflection. I’m fully engaged as I try to achieve balance between these opposites,” she said. Other Odin artists showing their work this summer include Bonnie Anderson, Glenn Clark, Colleen Couves, Karel Doruyter, Edward Epp, Leonhard Epp, Lynne Grillmair, Ginny Hall, Peter Lawson, Jerry R. Markham, Debby Merkel, Elizabeth Moore, Destanne Norris, Lisa Prowse, Barry Rafuse, Dana Roman, Al Scott, Todd R. White, Deborah Wilson, and Charlene Woodbury. Odin will also be participating in the Summer Wine Festival, which is returning to Silver Star Resort Aug. 9 and 10. The gallery will set up a space in Silver Star’s Snowsports School and will feature six artists, including Trops, Rafuse, Moore, Clark, Norris, and Wendy Penner painting on site. The six pieces will go up for silent auction. Other works by regional artists will also be shown. This week’s opening reception for Odin’s summer exhibition is Thursday from 6 to 10 p.m. and Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. The gallery will be open during summer Thursdays and Saturdays from 2 to 6 p.m. or call 250-5030822 to make an appointment. A virtual tour of the gallery can be seen at

Gallery’s youth ambassadors get ready to Riot

Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Public Art Gallery has received funding for two summer students this year, the first time in the five-year history in which university students have helped organize the annual alternative arts event, Riot on the Roof. Amongst recruiting artists, designers, bands, poets, and performers for the big event atop the Vernon Parkade Aug. 24, Robert Schley and Jamie Friesen will learn about the operations and objectives of a public art gallery and VPAG events, in just three short months. Riot on the Roof is geared

towards a younger demographic (16-to-24 years), in a way that generates interest in the arts in a slightly less than conventional method. Schley and Friesen will learn how to organize a community arts event, recruit artists, build sponsorship opportunities, event promotion, expand community partnerships, and continue to provide accessible and affordable art to everyone. As ambassadors, they will introduce new features in the 2013 Riot lineup, such as improv and contemporary dance. “I am really excited at the opportunity to organize Riot, and to help grow and promote the arts and cul-

ture community in Vernon,” said Friesen, who is a lifelong resident of the Okanagan and is currently studying cultural studies and political science at UBC Okanagan. She is also interested in food truck culture, and is on a quest to find the best local taco. “The Okanagan is filled with so much young, creative talent and this year Riot aims to show the community what alternative art looks like, how inspiring it can be, and how you can participate yourself.” Schley was born and raised in Vernon and has recently completed his first year in the television

and film production program at BCIT. He is also the proud owner of a 21-year-old fish, just one year older than he is. “I’m very excited to bring different forms of art to the Okanagan’s young community. I love art in all its forms and can’t wait to share that with others. I think the event is going be a blast and I’m thrilled to be involved in making this the most fun and entertaining Riot yet,” he said.  To contact Schley or Friesen about Riot on the Roof, call 250545-3173 or visit for more information.

School’s out

h, to have that wild anticipation of summer holidays that all those students are feeling in their classrooms this week. I miss those last few days before the big break – just to show up at school and have nothing pressing to focus on, no more deadlines or exams. Riding out those last few hours was something I just didn’t appreciate enough as Brian van Wensem a child. I didn’t realize that growing up meant there’s always something that needs doing, whether you’re working or not. With summer solstice now officially behind us, the busy events calendar at the Performing Arts Centre yields to make way for sunny days and outdoor activities. Sure, the building will see a short reprieve from audiences, but the centre’s worker-bees are busy getting ready for our exciting fall presentation season. Keep an eye out for our upcoming brochure in August, and until then be sure to carve out some time for yourself and get out to these exciting events that are coming up in the next few weeks.

Centre Point Weekday

This week, the Hub Arts Collective holds a mirror up to suburban life with the Tony-award winning comedy God of Carnage. What starts as a playground disagreement between children ends up with two sets of parents on opposite sides of a coffee table in an evening where civility and kindness gradually exit the scene as the parents themselves become increasingly childish. The audience sits on all sides of the action in The Hub’s first theatre in-the-round-style seating layout. God of Carnage plays Tuesday through Thursday at 7 p.m. Tuesday is two-for-one seating at the door. Regular tickets for Wednesday and Thursday are on sale now through the Ticket Seller at 549-SHOW (7469). It’s only a few days to go until this year’s Funtastic Music Festival. The music starts at the Department of National Defence grounds on Friday with headliner Honeymoon Suite (Wave Babies, New Girl Now). Saturday welcomes Sweet (Ballroom Blitz) and Sunday features Canadian country star Aaron Pritchett (Hold My Beer). Canada Day Monday features headliners Big Wreck and Theory of a Deadman playing through to the fireworks show after dark.  Tickets sell quickly for Funtastic, so call or go online to be a part of this long standing Vernon tradition.

Youth 8 - 18 Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill is the latest actor to don the red cape. However, when you consider that these beings are pretty much indestructible, battles go on and on, seemingly to no conclusion. Of course there is a conclusion to each of those battles. The problem arises in Superman’s methods of dispatching his enemy. (Why didn’t he just do that in the first place?) Secondly, as a by-product of their lasting power, these fights become dull. There’s only so many buildings to smash through, presumably killing thousands of people inhabiting those buildings in the process. Cut out 20 minutes of smashing and we’ll have a much better movie. HOWE: I’m not saying the movie was a complete washout. There were some fine performances from the cast. It was great to see Kevin Costner back on the big scene.

efore his home planet of Krypton was destroyed, baby Kal-El was sent to Earth so that his race might live on in the universe. That baby grew up to be Clark Kent (Henry Cavill), a 33-year-old itinerant worker, travelling from town to town, occasionally using his amazing powers to quietly save people from peril. Unsure how to best to live up to his purpose in this world, Kent’s Taylor and Howe hand is forced when General Zod (Michael Shannon) and a small contingent of Kryptonians come to Earth, demanding the humans release the unknown, as of yet, unnamed Superman. We say, “It’s a bit too long and loud, but the first two hours are great.” TAYLOR: I was looking forward to Man of Steel. We’ve been watching the trailer for months now. It has all the right pieces in place to be the mega-gigantic summer blockbuster. Director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), producer Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight series), and writer David Goyer (Dark Knight series, Call of Duty) are like a dream team of comic book action. I’m happy to say that I was not disappointed, but at the same time, my approval comes with a caveat. HOWE: Man of Steel started so promising. The opening half hour or so was very interesting, giving the background story of why baby Kal was sent to Earth and how Zod wanted to become leader of the Kryptonians. After that, I felt it slowly tickled down hill and become even duller than The Dark Knight Rises. I really was expecting more from it. TAYLOR: There were a couple things about Man of Steel I didn’t like. The effects during the fighting scenes were very well done. For instance, when the Kryptonians were fighting hand to hand with Superman, they moved great distances very quickly.

Warner Bros.

Yes, he’s made some hideous movies in the past, but you can’t say he’s not a fine actor, playing the role of Kent’s Earth father, he did very well. As for Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane, no one will come close to Terri Hatcher’s version of her. TAYLOR: That’s a joke, right? HOWE: With the likes of last year’s superhero blockbusters, The Avengers and Spiderman, I am really looking forward to seeing their sequels, but with this, I really don’t care if they make more. It wasn’t that supery. — Taylor gives Man of Steel 3.5 unworthy humans out of 5. — Howe gives it 2.5 not so superhuman out of 5. The film is currently showing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Former Sheryl Crow guitarist visits Former Sheryl Crow guitarist Todd Wolfe and his band return from their 42-date European tour only to head  back out for a sevenweek tour through the western provinces that brings them to the North Okanagan this week. Wolfe is back in North America this summer since his guitar-strumming, co-writing days with Crow and is currently promoting he and his band’s new album, Miles To Go. The Todd Wolfe Band recall the days when “men were men and amps were amps,” real tubes crackling with a sound reminiscent of the best rock and roll bands of the ‘60s and ‘70s. The band, which features Roger

Voss on drums and Justine Gardner on bass, jams and rocks, but their music is deeply soaked in blues. Leslie West of Mountain fame had this to say after Wolfe’s guitar contributions to her recent solo albums and duo guitar tours as well as his contribution to the last Mountain album, Masters of War:  “There are very few guitar players I like better than myself, Todd Wolfe is one of them.” Wolfe  and his band  bring their “bluesadelic” sound to Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek, east of Enderby, Wednesday and Thursday. Call the café at 250-838-6700 to reserve a seat.

It’s important that diabetics be familiar with the ‘ABCs’ of diabetes. These are A1C test, Blood pressure and Cholesterol. The A1C is a blood test to see how good your diabetes management has been for the past 3 months. The goal is to keep it below 7. Keeping your blood pressure and cholesterol readings as low as possible will also keep diabetic complications at bay. Speaking of blood pressure, 5 million Canadians have high blood pressure. This represents 19% of the adult population. Since you can’t feel high blood pressure, it’s important to have it checked regularly. High blood pressure can do damage to the body and increase the probability of getting diabetes and heart problems. Health Canada says a drug is okay for use in Canada based on all the information available about that drug at the time. After release, some information about the drug may surface that wasn’t in the original submission. Patients can help by reporting any adverse effects to their doctor and pharmacist. These health professionals can report to Health Canada to add to the drug database. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a problem many men are hesitant to talk about. The internet is full of ads promising solutions, but content of these products is dubious and may even contain prescription medications. Best advice? Talk to your doctor to determine the cause of ED and best treatment for you. Good advice: “Before you take it, talk about it.” Our pharmacists are always available to talk to you about medications.

Safety first at Ashland chemical plant Kevin Parnell Black Press

For the past 17 years, many things have changed at Ashland’s chemical plant located near Winfield in the region’s industrial area. There has been global downsizing that has the Ashland operation in the Okanagan as the last standing Canadian operation by a company that supplies specialty chemicals, technologies and expertise and operates in more than 100 countries around the world. The company locally has grown to employ 32 people but has also had to downsize its operations from a seven days per week facility that operates 24 hours a day to one that does the same, but just on a five-day work week. But the one thing that has remained is the company’s safety record. Ashland’s Okanagan operation recently celebrated 17 years without a time loss accident. “We’re very proud of our safety record and we work very hard to keep it going,” said Kelly Brown, Ashland plant manager. “We’re working with chemicals and there is lots of movement with trucks and rail cars. Our employees have done a fantastic job.” Brown made the comments as

he toured Kelowna Lake Country MP Ron Cannan around the site of the plant which came to the Okanagan in the early 1970s when other large manufacturers such as Western Star and Hiram Walker also arrived in the area. Ashland is the only original manufacturer still operating in the Okanagan. Ashland manufactures structural plastics for boats, campers and tubs and shower stalls among many other things. It operates mostly in Western Canada and in the Pacific Northwest region with its business split equally on both sides of the border. Among the other changes is a switch from hands-on to computerized technology that has seen employees streamline the way they operate the plant. “A lot of our customers are innovative builders,” said Brown. “They may be a canoe maker but they are looking to get lighter materials or they are looking for specialty products. We have a lot of talent here that can help find solutions. Our people make the difference.” Some research on new products is done in the Ashland plant although major research and development is performaned at Ashland’s $20 million (US) R and

Steinmann learns Cesar’s Way Morning Star Staff

Coldstream’s Brenda Steinmann has a laugh with Cesar Millan during an autograph session at his canine training centre in Santa Clarita, Calif.

Coldstream’s Brenda Steinmann says Cesar Millan (aka The Dog Whisperer) is the real deal. She should know. She worked with him firsthand when she enrolled in one of his dog trainer clinics in Santa Clarita, Calif. Steinmann says what people see Millan doing with problem animals on his popular reality TV show isn’t contrived. “He is that good with dogs,” said Steinmann, owner of Coldstream’s Urban K9 Dog Daycare and Boarding. “It’s quite amazing. You see it on TV and it’s like ‘No way, that was edited.’ But he works very quickly with dogs.” Steinmann says it is the follow-up by dog owners that takes time. “Cesar works through the problem and shows the owner it’s possible, but then it’s up to the owner to follow up on it. Repetition is key.” Steinmann learned about the course after signing up for Millan’s online newsletter. She then

drove down to the Golden State for an intensive five-day training session. Using the dog psychology and training principles she learned during the course, Steinmann offers services for obedience and behavioral issues such as basic obedience, dog aggression, dog park etiquette, shepherding and socialization. “I’ve always liked Cesar and his methods are good because he works with the people,” she said. “He’s always good with people who have issues.” Steinmann, who owns three Dobermans, also brings a dogs-first approach to the day-care and kennel. She allows a maximum of 12 day care dogs (plus boarding dogs at any one time), and the animals have access to private areas if they want to get away from the pack. “We like to keep it small so each dog gets attention,” said Steinmann, who operates the business on her five-acre property along Highway 6. “We built it from scratch in a way where we’d leave our dogs.”

added Adams. The book’s first edition focused on entrepreneurs who kept their businesses intact and thriving for years, even decades. The second edition is seeking winning stories from family businesses, young (under 30) entrepreneurs and female business owners. Those wanting to pass along their wisdom and lessons learned onto the next generation of business owners should visit The deadline to apply is June 28. Jim Treliving, owner of Boston Pizza International and panel member on CBC’s Dragons’ Den, said entrepreneurs are a rare breed of individuals courting opportunities and challenges along the way of building their businesses. He added the lessons learned from That’ll Never Work make it a worthy read. “Often adversity hits them between the eyes yet somehow through their creativity and innovation, they persevere to build wonderfully successful Canadian business stories,” said Treliving. “The experiences shared in this book are very insightful and practical and I would recommend it to any entrepreneur, business owner or anyone working in a family business today.”

Cannan tours Ashland Continued from B9



Almost every entrepreneur with a great business idea has been told “that’ll never work.” Last spring, KPMG Enterprise published That’ll Never Work: Business Lessons from Successful Canadian Entrepreneurs,  a No. 1 bestseller in Canada that celebrates the stories of 19 entrepreneurs who achieved success when those around them said they were wasting their time.  KPMG is assembling a second edition and is calling on the next wave of entrepreneurs to submit their success stories. “Entrepreneurial business owners don’t often have the opportunity share their stories of trial and error, luck, and perseverance with people other than friends and family,” says David Adams, office managing partner with KPMG in Vernon. KPMG Enterprise wants business people to share their successful business stories with entrepreneurs and business leaders across the country in That’ll Never Work 2. “Vernon has a strong entrepreneurial community with a long history of innovation and perseverance and KPMG Enterprise is looking forward to having local representation,”

Cannan says information about local business is key for him to understand the challenges of folks living and working in his home riding. “My list of responsibilities includes representing my constituents so I find the best way to understand their operation is to meet with them,” said Cannan, who showed up for the tour by himself, minus any kind of political entourage. “I try to hit a couple businesses when I am in the area to find out how they are doing. We have so many specialty and niche businesses here and this is a perfect example.”
