Mayor targets firefighting costs RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s mayor is vowing to bring spiralling firefighting costs under control. It was revealed Monday that a total of $336,879 in retroactive wages is being paid to unionized firefighters largely because the collective agreement calls for parity with their Lower Mainland Rob Sawatzky counterparts. “We can’t have six per cent awards that aren’t in line with budgets,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. “The firefighters may have to make some tough decisions.” Sawatzky wouldn’t get into specifics as contract talks are underway with the union for 2012 and 2013, but he says administra-

tion is considering options to fulfill contractual obligations and keep costs in line. Sawatzky also points out that firefighters are receiving salary hikes that are out of step with the cost of living and going to other city workers. Historically, the city has opposed wage parity with Vancouver, with officials saying it doesn’t reflect the economic reality of Vernon. “It’s gone to arbitrators four times and the arbitrators have supported the current process where awards are in line with the Lower Mainland,” said Sawatzky. The city had originally budgeted for retroactive pay of $144,879 for 2013. But settlements in the Lower Mainland have resulted in a total increase of six per cent for 2010 and 2011, meaning there was a shortfall of $191,999. That money will come from reserve funds. It’s anticipated there will be further wage increases for 2012 and 2013 once

contracts are settled. “There is wage parity in B.C. We do the same job as all firefighters and there is the same risk,” said Doug Imrich, Vernon Professional Firefighters Association vicepresident. “The job we do is the same no matter where you live. It’s no different with teachers. They get paid the same whether they live in Vancouver or Dawson Creek.” Imrich added that firefighters work an average of 42 hours per week compared to 35 hours per week for other city employees. “That equates to almost two more months of work each year.” Imrich says it’s up to the city to budget appropriate funds to cover wages, including retroactive pay, and he admits there is a concern about how the city may attempt to handle costs. “It’s something we will deal with during negotiations. I am sure we will have fair and open negotiations at that time.”

Lumby officials are investigating how to prevent flooding from threatening homes and businesses. Conditions are starting to dry up after Duteau and Bessette creeks overflowed their banks June 21. For the first time ever, water was impacting stores on Vernon Street while one home, which has been Kevin Acton flooded out over the years, will likely be demolished. “I was talking to someone who has been here 60 years and he has never seen it like that,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. “This is three years in a row (that high water has occurred). It’s not like it used to be when it was every 10 years.” As a result, the village is considering options to mitigate the impact of future flooding. “The creeks aren’t getting flushed like they should so dredging would be a good idea,” said Acton, adding, though, that such work is costly and Ministry of Environment rules would have to be followed. “We will go to the province for help and we will look at partnerships with the regional district.” Acton would also like to see the Regional District of North Okanagan control flows on Duteau Creek more so there is less chance for flooding downstream. RDNO operates a treatment plant on Duteau Creek to meet domestic needs in Greater Vernon. While there is a 40 per cent chance of rain today, temperatures are supposed to soar into the 30s by the weekend. But even with weather conditions improving, Acton says residents will continue to monitor creek levels. “We have a lot of sandbags made and they are ready to go if needed,” he said.

Pleasant Valley Secondary School Class of 2013 grads nathan Domarchuk-White (above from left), Phelan gotto and Brandon robbins gather for a photo in the school auditorium Monday. Melaney Campbell and Mikayla Linton ham it up wearing special centennial glasses. karina Pawlitschek (below from left), Dayle Schmidt and Ashley Yatkowsky are joined by Ashley’s date Mike Burton for some fun at the okanagan Photo Star booth.

Grads mark hometown centennial roger knox Morning Star Staff

Excitement filled the hot auditorium and foyer of Armstrong’s Pleasant Valley Secondary on Monday. The school’s Class of 2013 was assembling in their formal attire for the official grad photo, normally taken on the school’s back field, but moved to Plan B, the auditorium, because of inclement weather. For the Class of 2013, it’s exciting for them to know they are the class leaving the hallowed halls during the city’s 100th birthday. “It’s an honour to be part of the grad class during the city’s centennial,” said grad Mikayla Linton. Each grad posed for photos with special “100” glasses on. “This only happens once so it’s very cool,” added fellow grad Melaney Campbell. Grad Nathan Domarchuk-White wouldn’t use the word excited to describe

his emotions. “I’ve been anticipating this moment since the day I was born,” smiled DomarchukWhite. “There are flamingos and giraffes in my stomach; a stampede of joy and humbleness.” Then there was the last-minute excitement for PVSS Class of 2012 alumnus Jordyn Sandy, trying to make it to Armstrong Monday to be the grad date of Katie Hudson. Sandy lives and workers as a welder in Claresholm, Alta., which has been rocked

by flooding. “I was going to try and drive here but couldn’t get out, so I had to get a last-minute flight,” said Sandy. “I’ve known Katie since we were kids and I wouldn’t have missed this.” For 28 years as a P.E. teacher at PVSS, Deb Murphy has seen thousands of grads come and go. “It’s exciting to see them all dressed up, but at the same time it’s sad to see them go,” said Murphy. “I feel like I’m their mother for five years. It’s interesting to watch them enter the next phase of their lives. This group is a great bunch of kids.” A real mother of one of the grads, Tracy Churchill was excited to help her son, Travis, go suit shopping. Seeing her son pose for his official grad photo brought back memories of Churchill’s own grad from Vernon Secondary School in 1985. “This is a very memorable day, and they

all look amazing,” said Churchill. “I’m so proud of my son. Today has been awesome.” After literally sweating out the grad photo in the hot auditorium, the grads enjoyed some more picture taking with their families outside. Later on Monday, they attended a prom in their formal wear at the Armstrong Curling Club. Official graduation ceremonies take place tonight at the Nor-Val Sports Centre.

Cherryville woman victim of crash Tracy HugHes Black Press

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a woman who died in a motor vehicle incident after fleeing from police on June 21. Courtenay Brianne Eggen, aged 21, of Cherryville was the driver and sole occupant of a car, which collided with a parked dump truck in a parking lot off Auto Road SE in Salmon Arm, just before midnight. She died at the scene. Members of the Independent Investigations Office (IIO), whose mandate it is to investigate deaths or serious injuries that are potentially police related, are investigating the fatal motor vehicle incident on Auto Road involving Salmon Arm police. According to the RCMP, on June 21 at approximately 12:15 a.m., an RCMP officer in Salmon Arm attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle and driver. A press release issued Monday by the IIO, states, “Initial information indicated that the vehicle stopped, then subsequently fled once

Investigators look over the scene of an accident in Salmon Arm on June 21 that claimed the life of a Cherryville woman. the officer approached. It has since been clarified that the vehicle did not stop at any point; rather it fled immediately when the officer attempted to stop it.” “A brief pursuit was initiated but was subsequently terminated. Shortly thereafter, the vehicle collided with a parked truck,” states the release. The IIO was alerted to the situation at 12:30 a.m. and immediately dispatched investigators to the scene, including a high-level traffic re-con-

structionist. At the scene in Salmon Arm’s Industrial Park Friday morning, the crumpled car sat beside a large dump truck at the edge of the parking lot of the Country Kitchen Restaurant. A basketball and other damaged items were visible in the trunk area of the wreckage. On the opposite side of Auto Road, a police car sat wedged between a building and a grassy embankment. Investigators were checking tire marks where it appeared the cruiser had

gone over the edge of the road and down the short slope. The police cruiser had two tires blown out and its trunk damaged. IIO’s Kellie Kilpatrick says information provided by the RCMP indicates the pursuit was called off, but the investigators will be reviewing the timeline of the incident. Auto Road between 40th and 44th Avenue NE was closed until the afternoon while investigators examined the scene. This is the first

time the Independent Investigations Office has been called to look into a case in Salmon Arm. There are four mobile investigative teams, with one on call at any given time to be dispatched around the province. “We can deploy one, two or partial teams, depending on the nature of the incident. Plus we have people here in Surrey doing additional support work. We can, very quickly, customize the response,” said Kilpatrick.

Regional district lifts outdoor water use curtailment Morning Star Staff

Greater Vernon residents can start outdoor irrigation again. The Duteau Creek water treatment plant has returned to normal operation and the restriction on outdoor water use

has been lifted. On June 21, the Regional District of North Okanagan decided to switch Duteau customers over to the Kalamalka Lake source because of high turbidity.

Due to capacity reasons, all customers were asked not to use water outdoors and to minimize all water use. A helicopter trip determined the source of the turbidity. “Some of the creek bank had

eroded and the creek had created a few new channels,” said Renee Clark, water quality manager. “This brought in a lot sediment and organic material such as branches, leaves and needles.”

Armstrong bestows Freedom of City upon Oglow roger knox Morning Star Staff

Jerry Oglow finds it easier to bestow the Freedom of the City of Armstrong upon deserving recipients than being bestowed the honour himself. The former 12-year mayor became the 11th recipient of the Freedom of the City at a ceremony Friday at the Armstrong Curling Club. “It’s truly an honour to receive the award,” said Oglow, 63. “The Freedom of the City is not something handed out that often. I personally handed out three of them (Betty Atkinson, 2000; Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 35, 2001; and Eric Hornby, 2005) as mayor. I enjoyed presenting them over the years.” The Freedom of the City is the highest honour that can be bestowed by the City of Armstrong, and is a result of a unanimous decision by members of city council. The honour was started in England in 1237 and arose from medieval practices of granting respected citizens freedom from serfdom from

Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper (left) presents his predecessor, Jerry Oglow, with the Freedom of the City at a special ceremony Friday at the Armstrong Curling Club. Oglow is the 11th recipient of the city’s highest honour. a feudal lord. “It’s an old civic tradition, and I’m one of these people that have a strong belief in local government and the history and traditions that go with it,” said Oglow. “It made my day when city council, on behalf of the people, offered

this presentation.” Oglow arrived in Armstrong from Creston, where he worked for the local school board and held a similar post with the Armstrong School District. He was elected to city council in November 1984

Family Owned & Operated Offers valid ‘til July 2, 2013

and served as a council for 12 years. He would spend another 12 years as the city’s mayor, retiring in 2008. “That’s a quarter of the history of Armstrong,” said current mayor and longtime friend Chris Pieper, who read aloud a lengthy list of Oglow’s

achievements in municipal politics. He was very involved with UBC Okanagan, Interior Health, the municipal finance authority and many more committees over his nearly quarter-century of community service. Oglow was responsible for the city’s solid waste treatment and irrigation system, and proud of the water supply strategy in Fortune Creek. He was instrumental in the creation of the city’s 35-year capital infrastructure plan, the acquisition of land for Heaton Place, a 76-unit seniors retirement complex on the site of the old hospital, and worked with local MLAs and MPs to build the Nor-Val Sports Centre. “Jerry always prided himself in being very organized and planning was very important to all aspects of his career,” said Pieper. “He could deliver a great speech and debate any topic because of his memory, research and organizational skills.” It wasn’t just the city that Oglow was passionate about; it was the entire North

Okanagan region. That fact was verified by Patrick Nicol, longtime City of Vernon councillor who worked with Oglow on the board of the Regional District of North Okanagan. “Jerry seemed to know there is no substitute for hard work and three qualities stood out: friendship, cooperation and loyalty,” said Nicol. “Jerry recognized good things in others, concentrating on forward progress. I believe it is why Armstrong, as a city, has had a steady increasing level of achievement, rather than experiencing peaks and valleys.” Added Pieper: “He was, and still is, a great leader. A lot of the city’s current assets are through his due diligence.” The other recipients of Armstrong’s Freedom of the City include John Halpenny Wilson (1953), George William Game (1957), Albert Ivan Warner (1958), William Joseph Smith (1963), Dr. Roy Haugen (1971), John Murison Jamieson (1971) and John Blanchard Smith (1978).

A tribute to cancer survivors and victims is keeping some neighbours awake. The City of Vernon received complaints about after-hours noise coming from the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life June 8 and 9 in Polson Park. “This is the third year that we have received multiple complaints,” said Patti Bridal, the city’s corporate services manager, in a memo to council. The event sees people walk around the park oval all night, and when they are not doing that, there are other activities to keep them entertained. The city says the last complaint was received at 12:30 a.m. “Currently, we consider that if a park usage permit has been issued and is still valid (the permit has not expired or has no time limit), that the use and any noise associated with it is allowed,” said Bridal. “Although bylaw enforcement may still attend and ask that noise levels be reduced, this created conflict between the user, bylaw officers and the complainant.” Rally organizers have been approached about trying to reduce noise levels by 11 p.m. However, Bridal admits the city doesn’t want to be heavyhanded. “It becomes difficult to police or control, especially given the fundraising and opportunities for healing that this sort of event allows,” she said. This year’s Vernon Relay for Life attracted more

“We were not notified of any noise complaints during this year’s event...” — Sarb Tatla-Low

than 328 participants and it raised $90,000 for cancer research and care. Relay for Life organizers say they worked directly with the parks department and bylaw officers to ensure they followed all noise bylaws communicated to them. “We were not notified of any noise complaints during this year’s event and have not been made aware of any complaints in previous years,” said Sarb Tatla-Low, co-ordinator of community giving for the Canadian Cancer Society. Tatla-Low saus the purpose of Relay For Life is to bring a community together to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against cancer. “It’s important for us to put on an event that is engaging and inspirational while also minimizing impact on surrounding residents and we certainly would make changes if that community had expressed concerns about noise,” she said. “We hope all Vernon residents take the opportunity to experience Relay For Life and join us in 2014 as their community fights back against cancer.”

Morning Star Staff

He told police he suffered from stiff man syndrome and he was looking for a ride back to Penticton. That’s why he was in the driver’s seat of a U-Haul vehicle of a Vernon neighbourhood early Sunday morning. A local resident called the Vernon RCMP detachment shortly before 12:30 a.m. to say they saw a light going on and off in the U-Haul which was parked in the 2500 block of 43rd Street. “One of our officers arrived Gord Molendyk and saw a male sitting in the driver’s seat of a U-Haul van,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The man in the driver’s seat was wearing a black hoodie,

gloves and was tampering with the vehicle’s ignition.” The man was arrested and he identified himself to the officer as a 49-year-old from Penticton. The suspect had his walker on the passenger seat of the U-Haul and a black bag containing a balaclava, and other items considered break and enter equipment. “The suspect told the officer he suffered from stiff man syndrome” and needed a ride back to Penticton,” said Molendyk. Medical-related websites describe stiff man syndrome (also known as stiff person syndrome) a rare disease related to the nerves, and is an auto-immune disorder that affects the central nervous system which leads to a progressive condition of fluctuating muscle rigidity and spasms. The rigidity is mainly seen in the spinal region and lower limb area. The man was released from custody on a promise to appear in Vernon Provincial Court.

A member of the public helped local RCMP pull an alleged impaired driver off the road. At 8:30 a.m. on a Sunday. With the suspect’s child in the car. Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP general duty officers were working with North Okanagan Traffic Services when they were able to stop a vehicle south of Vernon near Bailey Road. “A concerned citizen called in about a brown Chevy SUV swerving all over the road,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The driver, a 46-year-old Coldstream man, was

impaired and given a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition (IRP).” The man’s vehicle was impounded for 30 days. Police are thanking the public for alerting them about the driver as he did have his 12-year-old son in the vehicle. “He told police he was driving to Kelowna, so this could have ended far worse for everyone,” said Molendyk. Over the past week, Vernon RCMP issued seven 90-day IRPs and arrested one impaired driver. There were two three-day IRPs issued but no 30-day IRPs or 24-hour prohibitions. Seven vehicles were impounded by police.

Just after 2 a.m. Monday, the owner of Vernon Auto Wreckers in the 3200 block of 45th Avenue reported an alarm at his business. “The owner and his wife were viewing a live stream video of a male suspect in the yard of their business,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “Our officers attended and set up containment and a police service dog unit was called in.

Man assaulted in Vernon townhouse Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP are investigating a serious assault. On Monday at about 9:30 p.m., officers received a report of an assault in a townhouse complex on 20th Street, near 40th Avenue. “Our officers located a 61-year-old male victim, who suffered injuries to his face,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. “The victim was transported to hospital and remains in the intensive care unit in Kelowna with serious head injuries” A 28-year-old Vernon man was taken into custody for aggravated assault. “The serious crime unit is continuing to investigate this assault and is not releasing any further details at this time,” said Molendyk.

The suspect fled west on foot across Highway 97 and into BX Creek where he was arrested. A second suspect was located by the dog unit in a canvas shed to the east of the main parking area on the property of Vernon Auto Wreckers. “This is the second time in the past week that a suspect has been caught in that business with the aid of the police service dog unit,” said Molendyk. The two suspects, both 17 and from Vernon, were returned the Vernon detachment where they were turned over to their parents. The two were released on promises to appear in court and with conditions which include no contact and not to go near the business.

Addiction comes at a cost

D

ownloading is nothing new for local governments. Victoria and Ottawa stop doing things that fall within their mandate and, inevitably, the municipality or regional district picks up the slack. We’ve seen it time and time again, whether it’s milfoil control, highway landscaping or social services. But a new form of downloading is really hurting the bottom line. In an attempt to keep feeding the beast known as the provincial bureaucracy, Victoria has moved into online gaming, meaning people can sit at home instead of heading off to their neighbourhood casino. That is bad news for communities, like Vernon, who get a 10 per cent cut of the net revenue from the local casino. “Gaming opportunities are rapidly expanding in non-tradition venues Richard Rolke (egaming in particular), which dilutes the potential market share for established casinos,” said Will Pearce, Vernon’s chief administrative officer, in a memo. “Host local government share of casino revenues are based on overall casino activity. Local government share of revenues, in general, show signs of declining in the face of increasing competition to established casino operations.” The B.C. Lottery Corporation had record net income of $1,107.4 million in 2011/2012, while casino and community gaming revenue fell short of target by $41 million during the same period. The city currently receives about $2 million annually and that helps cover everything from repairs to ailing infrastructure to upgrades at the Lakers Clubhouse. It’s a pot of cash that’s dipped into frequently when a sudden shortfall occurs. “Those revenues are one of the few non property tax-based sources for local councils to

direct towards municipal services,” said Pearce in his report. Municipalities, like their provincial counterpart, have become addicted to this easy source of money. All they have to do is wait for people to plunk their tokens into the slots. But that dependency is being undermined as a result of Victoria expanding its egaming presence, all under the guise of fulfilling customer demand. As a result, Vernon is attempting to shore up its financial stake by asking the Union of B.C. Municipalities to lobby the province to bolster the percentage return. “Local host communities seek an increased share of casino revenues to offset stagnant or declining activity in casinos in part due to alternative gaming options being developed and sponsored through BCLC,” wrote Pearce. Victoria will be reluctant to slice up the pie even further, particularly as numerous election promises have to be paid for. However, the government must realize that its bottom line is partly a result of what happens on the ground in communities, whether it’s casinos or online. “Of the $30 million going through the (local) casino, the city gets back $2 million and the rest goes back to Victoria,” said Coun. Bob Spiers. Put another way, thousands of local residents are spending their hard-earned dollars on games of chance, and for some of them, the impact can be devastating. Municipalities are also left responsible for the social ills that may come from gambling, including crime and spousal abuse. Grants can never make up for the personal pain problem gambling causes for some individuals and families, but it’s an acknowledgment of the source of revenue. The bottom line is the provincial government has encouraged people to embrace expanded gaming opportunities and it has got municipalities hooked on the cash. If Victoria wants to shift its focus from casinos to egambling, fine. But it can’t leave everyone else sitting on the sidelines just so it can get its fix.

Lumby residents and businesses continue to clean up from the high water that washed in late last week. The tide rolled through buildings and caused significant damage. Flooding is nothing new in Lumby given that the community is built along two creeks — Bessette and Duteau. But the extent of this latest emergency reached new heights. “I was talking to someone who has been here 60 years and he has never seen it like that,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. “This is three years in a row (for flooding). It’s not like it used to be when it was every 10 years.” Given that there seems to be more frequency to flooding, Acton’s call to try and minimize future situations makes sense, particularly because residents and businesses can’t continue to endure damage that is rarely covered by insurance. Also, consider the economic losses as businesses close for clean-up. Given that Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster lives in Lumby, he should understand first-hand the implications from flooding. He is obviously the first person the village should be approaching to pursue mitigation measures. Considerable money will be required for creek dredging or engineered berms — far more cash than Lumby taxpayers can afford on their own. Discussions also need to be held with the Regional District of North Okanagan, which has a water treatment plant on Duteau Creek. Are there actions that can be taken to reduce flows heading downstream so there is less potential flooding? All of the solutions are complex but now is the time for all levels of government to put flooding at the top of the agenda. Residents need to know something is being done before the tide rolls in again.

Party leader gets to be premier

ecently, a byelection has been called in Westside-Kelowna for Christy Clark to run in an effort to gain a seat in the BC Legislature as she lost hers. People have wondered how someone who was defeated in an election still finds themselves premier. I understand their confusion and I hope my brief explanation helps people understand what happened. The short answer is no one elects a premier. It is the same with the federal government; no one elects a prime minister. When we go to the polls, we vote for our local representative. In the case of our recent election, each of us voted for our local MLA. There is some technical bits about who forms government, but generally it is the party with the most MLAs that forms government. The leader of that party is automatically the premier.

salary comparison I find it frustrating that the myth of the fat cat city employee or politician being paid huge sums is continuing to be perpetuated. The June 12 editorial states that "many taxpayers don't earn close to what civic workers take home." Time and again when public servant salaries are compared to a private sector counterpart doing similar work, particularly at the senior levels, the private sector employee is paid better. I also use the term servant on purpose. Private sector workers tend to have better working conditions compared to public employees who must constantly justify their work, even though there would be a huge outcry if potholes were not paved or parks not planned for, and they are often belittled and insulted in the media and to their faces. I think most people wouldn't like to be on the receiving end of many phone calls a public employee hears. I am amazed at the lack of basic manners, particularly when it is not the employee's fault that a particular service isn't offered or is being reduced. It's often due to calls to cut taxes. Public employees do the work

They don't have to be a MLA. But if they are not elected as an MLA, they cannot sit in the Legislature which is where the laws of our province are debated and passed. Fortunately, Canada has a great tradition of unwritten convention. So while the premier doesn't have to be an MLA, we expect them to be. So that is why Christy Clark is running in Westside-Kelowna. So she can sit in the Legislature and be held to account by the other elected members. As Canadians, we are frequently bombarded by the overactive media coverage of the U.S. government and in particular their office of the president; who is directly elected. Democracies come in many shapes and forms. We need to remember that we have our own form of government and when we know how it works, we can make it work for British Columbians. Dustin Griffin

they do not just for their salary but because they love their community and want to make it great. J. smith loss of faith I have lost faith in the mayor and council. Why you say? First the core report, we were told at many public meetings that the report would be completely open and above board. Well first off, we are not allowed to see the one item (staffing) that we wanted to and were never told we would not. All we want to see is the basics. Second we have people telling us that they are doing this and saving that but as the public, we never have seen the final report. We should have a timeline report with all of the suggestions and if they have been completed, are in the process or not probable. This should come from the council and mayor, not managers. Then there's the sports complex. It was pushed through because the plans were made and they had to get it through to bid on the Senior Games of 2015. Well, you pushed it through, even if it should have been part of the core report and now they say they are not bidding on 2015 as they want it to be up and running first. Second, we are sinking more

money into it that I was not aware of like many taxpayers. Now they are making up a committee to finalize the design? I thought by what was said at the public meetings, that this was the design and now everyone wants to change it again. The sports complex might have to share parking with transit. How much more money is this going to cost? I said that this was going to happen. Maybe we should stand back and take another look at it if this is what we really want now. Now we are putting aside 29th Street upgrades (sewers need replacing) but we went ahead with the upgrading of 30th Avenue. This does not make sense. Now we have another manager giving out a viewpoint. Mr. Poole was so glad to say there has been an average of 25,000 to 30,000 square feet of new buildings downtown. Most of this is in the Tolko building, and two new buildings. But he neglects to say how many buildings the city had to buy and then tear down or leave vacant to achieve these two new buildings. They are not even full yet and doubt they will ever be. When he makes this report, it does not take into consider-

ation all the empty space available downtown or in the city. Now we have managers having interviews and making pronouncements regarding things that should be coming from the mayor or council as they are our elected representatives, not the paid managers. A greater amount of taxpayers are getting fed up with how this mayor and council, minus a few councillors who are speaking up for us, are treating us as uneducated and unimportant people. It is time to make them responsible. Write to the auditor general and your member of the Legislature and lodge a complaint. We should look into the prospect of having a recall campaign if possible for these officials. Garry haas interestinG statements On May 21, I received a mailed, large, taxpayer-paid pamphlet from MP Colin Mayes. It said, "As a result of our government's economic action plan, Canada is doing well - very well." However on May 22, in his regular Morning Star column, Mr. Mayes wrote about, "low economic growth figures domestically" and spoke of "the lagging economy," calling today, "a time of recession."

Would Mr. Mayes please reconcile these two statements for his readership. Particularly in light of the May 22 news article that he is being monitored by the prime minister's office. Jerry reitman

A school program centred around getting students to give back locally and globally has fallen victim to declining enrolment. The Global Education program, run primarily through Clarence Fulton but open to all Vernon School District students, didn’t have enough interest to proceed for the upcoming school year. “There were not nearly enough students,” said Fulton principal Malcolm Reid, who was forced to cut the Grade 11 program for next year. Generally, about 20 students are needed to fill the program. “There were half of what we need,” said Reid. “If there had been 18 we would’ve said, ‘how are we going to make this happen.’” But with insufficient interest from current Grade 10 students, the program had to be cut in order to ensure the students recieve the programs they want. “We had to run the courses the kids wanted,” said Reid, as a number of programs are offered to students but interest depicts which will run. As an example English Literature didn’t have enough students sign up and also had to be cut. While fewer students may be interested in taking Global Ed, Reid suggests that costs and overall school enrolment may have resulted in the low numbers. “I think it’s been a victim of less kids. We have less kids in our building than we used to have.” The program also costs each

student approximately $2,500 – which helps cover the cost of the international field study in Nicaragua. Reid doesn’t deny that Global Ed is a remarkable program, and hopes there may be enough interest to bring it back for the following year. But former Global Ed student Anita Kajla isn’t taking the news sitting down. The now 21-year-old is taking her plea to keep the program going to the school board Wednesday, where she will make an in-camera presentation. “I couldn’t believe what they were taking away from future students and from our community,” said Kajla. “I wouldn’t be who I am today without this program.” Her own Global Ed experience was invaluable and the passionate Kajla wants to ensure all kids have an opportunity to take part. “The value of being a student in the global education program is not being passed on to future students.” Those benefitting from the Global Ed contributions overseas are also disheartened. “We want to say that we are saddened by the cancellation of the program, but at the same time there is a deep gratitude in our hearts for all the wonderful work you performed in our country,” wrote Felix and Angelica Almendarez in a letter Kajla will be presenting to the school board. Kajla suggests that the program was not promoted enough across the district or to students at Fulton. But Reid says that is not

in the community,” he said of numerous Morning Star articles over the years and the fact that the program has students out in their community, thinking critically and working for change both locally and globally. Still, with some of the very passion she gained from her own Global Ed experience, Kajla is fighting for the program.

stretch of Highway 97 that’s being designed and is slated to open later this year. On Friday, during the morning and afternoon hours, NOTS officers spent four hours working the operation and wrote 59 speeding tickets. “Crews are now working right out on the road as they tie into that end and there have been complaints (about speeders) from workers,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The workers have complained before, and it’s very well-marked. But when you write 59 tickets in four hours, it’s obvious people are not slowing down.” The speed limit in the construction zone goes from 90 to 70 to 50 km/hour. During Friday’s enforcement, officers also ticketed one driver for having no insurance, one for not wearing a seatbelt and, unlike the past couple of Fridays when there were multiple tickets for excessive speeding, officers issued only one this week. “A driver had his vehicle impounded for seven days as he was an unlicensed driver who already had one previous no valid driver’s license ticket,” said Molendyk. Police also issued 10 warnings.

Lights, camera, action for Trainor roger knox Morning Star Staff

It’s one of the most enjoyable political appointments of John Trainor’s 17-year local government career. And the merriment will continue for the Armstrong councillor, who was named chairperson of the Okanagan Film Commission for a third straight term at the commission’s annual general meeting. John Trainor “It’s a lot of fun,” said Trainor. “The Okanagan Film Commission operates on such a miniscule budget that the amount of business we’ve been able to bring to the Okanagan is amazing.” More than 10 years ago, circa 2002, the commission’s annual budget was $325,000. That has been pared considerably. In 2011-12, the budget – with money coming from the province and the

regional districts of North and Central Okanagan, plus Okanagan-Similkimeen and Boundary-Kootenay – was $195,500. The budget went up to $211,500 for 2012-13, yet brought in $27.5 million to the Okanagan, Similkimeen and Boundary regions. The proposed budget for 2013-14 is $235,000. Thanks to 15 film, animation and commercial shoots in the books for this year, the film commission has already surpassed last year’s total by $1 million with $28.5 million already in. Companies such as Kia and Manulife Financial have already been to the region to shoot high-end commercials and have left. Others are still to come. “We should be recognized as the major economic development agency in the Okanagan Valley, doing what we do at a fraction of the cost of most in-house municipal economic development committees,” said Trainor. The $28.5 million brought to the region could climb even higher in 2013. “Could” being the key word.

Rumours persist that a major Hollywood production with a well-known leading man is slated to shoot in the North Okanagan, starting either in late August or early September. Trainor, however, goes the route of the silent movie when asked about it. “I am unable to comment on the many rumours circulating,” he said. Animation has played a big key in the film commission’s success. Former Okanagan Film Commission employee Ashley Ramsay of Kelowna’s Yeti Farm Creative has signed an exclusive three-year agreement with a major Vancouver animation company. “Yeti Farm Creative will co-produce multiple animation television productions,” said Trainor. “Ramsay said their staff of 18 will grow to 40 in 2014, providing good-paying jobs to youth wishing to get into the animation industry.” Ramsay praised the commission and its animation commissioner, Jon Summerland, for their tireless efforts in promoting the booming animation industry in the Okanagan.

Rules are in place for RV parking in city Morning Star Staff

Summer is a time when recreational vehicle owners come to Vernon to visit friends and family. An RV is defined in the city’s zoning bylaw as a vehicle intended as a temporary accommodation for travel or recreational use, and it includes travel trailers, motorized homes, slide-in campers, chassis-mounted campers, boats, ATVs, snowmobiles and tent trailers. “Up to two RVs may be parked or stored on a resi- Clint Kanester dential property, and can be parked in your driveway, side yard or rear yard, and may be up to 29 feet each in total length,” said Clint Kanester, the city’s bylaw enforcement manager. “Larger RVs may still be parked or stored on a residential property, but must be stored in a fully enclosed building. Total length would include any additions to regular length such as a storage box

that may be attached to your bumper, or the length of a trailer with boat as one unit.” For RVs longer than 29 feet, short-term parking of no more than two consecutive days for the purposes of loading, unloading, service or repair is permitted. An RV may not be parked on your front lawn or areas outside of your approved driveway, side yard or rear yard. “On the street, RVs up to 20 feet long can be parked for up to 48 hours and RV’s more than 20 feet long can be parked for up to 24 hours,” said Kanester. “RVs parked on the street also need to have a valid license plate and be insured. Note that storage insurance alone is not adequate to park on the street.” Electrical cords can run from your house to your RV as long as they don’t cross the sidewalk or boulevard. Pull-outs should not be extended while parking on the street. “By following these little tips about RV use, visitors and residents can avoid headaches and accidents,” said Kanester.

Headbones spotlights Okanagan art and culture Morning Star Staff

Headbones Gallery is presenting the work of local indigenous artist David Wilson as well as wearable art by Mollie Bono and Akira Hanson of Molakira’z Dezignz in its summer exhibition, opening Thursday. Wilson, who is showing his paintings, is a member of the Okanagan Nation and the winner of the B.C. Achievement Awards in Aboriginal Art for 2012. Wilson’s work was featured at the Vernon Public Art Gallery this past year. His paintings also grace the Vernon Performing Arts Centre and the Kelowna Community Theatre. Wilson’s work speaks of the identity and origins of the Okanagan. It articulates traditional motifs executed in brilliant acrylic paint, sometimes on drums. Drawing from pictographs, stories and indigenous imagery influenced by the Maori, North West Coast or Egyptians, Wilson’s paintings can be seen as contemporary icons. “His work reaches out,” said Headbones owner Julie Oakes. “It bridges gaps not only between cultures and backgrounds but also between generations, sociological hierarchies and the widening gaps created by technology.” Using vibrant colours with a quick-read graphic style, Wilson’s work can be appreciated from many levels. The paintings are clear and enlivened so that they catch the eye of younger generations, yet also refresh the mediaworn vision of the more mature. “Fresh in concept and design and crisp, the combinations of geometric and organic shapes create an energy that makes the paintings dance,” said

David Wilson shows his latest painting, Father, Son and Sister Moon – Old Sacred Knowledge, along with other work at Headbones Gallery, opening Thursday, June 27. Vanessa Mitchell, right, models a coat made by Molakira’z Dezignz’ Mollie Bono and Akira Hanson. Oakes. “Each piece is a celebration of life, a return to belief,” Wilson began his interest in art from the age of 12 when he first discovered Salish pictographs. He read the seminal publication Pictographs (Indian Rock Paintings) in The Interior of British Columbia, written by John Corner in 1968, and it brought to light an area of visual knowledge that many in the Okanagan have yet to explore. Wilson first studied art under Coastal Salish and Haida artists while attending business college. “Currently, Wilson riffs on the imagery from these ancient roots, transforming the wisdom of an earlier time into a brightened version,” said Oakes. “By reinvent-

ing the narratives, the stories gain in relevance. Because he has an impeccable sense of balance and composition, the resulting pictures reverberate with tones from our modern existence.” Wilson’s work also connects to the spirits of the animals, the elements and seasons. “Man’s place in the cosmos is once again in conversation with the natural world. And if the round format happens to be on a drum —made of deer or elk hide and able to be played — then the music made from a simpatico between man and nature can also be sounded,” he says. To celebrate the summer solstice, Headbones will host

A Procession of Colours, a performance created by Molakira’z Dezignz, at the Thursday opening for Wilson’s show. The wearable art by Okanagan Nation member Bono and Metis artist Hanson draws on the tradition of their ancestors who used all parts of the deer and other game. The garments are made of natural fabrics such as wool, with finishing touches of bones, beads and leather. This will be a return to Headbones for Molakira’z Dezignz, who in 2002 was featured in a fashion show at the gallery’s former downtown location. “As the lights went down in the old main-street location of

Headbones Gallery, the models, resplendent in the colourful cloaks made by Molakira’z Dezignz, saluted the eight directions,” said Oakes. For their upcoming show, Molakira’z new designs will be paraded at Headbones’ Skulpture Yard, featuring works by Doug Alcock, Angelika Jaeger and David Montpetit. “It will be a procession of art within a context of art,” said Oakes. Bono will provide commentary during the fashion show, while The Earth Sisters, led by Robin Redhawk with Carolyn Anele, Wendy Chambers, Judy Wessel and Akira Hanson, will sing and drum. Thursday’s opening reception for Wilson runs from 7 to 9 p.m., while the fashion show starts at 8 p.m. Headbones Gallery is located at 6700 Old Kamloops Rd.

Cowboy show delves into history at O’Keefe Ranch Morning Star Staff

“There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.” Visitors to Historic O’Keefe Ranch will soon see what this poem has to do with cowboys, cattle drives and the origin of the B.C. west, when the ranch once again stages its fifth annual Cowboy Dinner Show. A new theatrical piece has been incorporated into this year’s show, and is a collaborative production effort between cowboy singer-songwriter Rob Dinwoodie and Jason Armstrong, founder of Agape Theatre Company. “Without giving too much away, we have linked gold fields and cattle drives into the show in a way our audiences won’t forget,” said Dinwoodie, producer of the popular event. “What we wanted to do was have guests experience some of the west come alive. That’s what will happen as actors share a role in telling the story of the west.” The new show includes new songs, stories and drama, plus attendees can enjoy a steak dinner with all the fixings, provided by Cattlemen’s Club Restaurant. Dinwoodie is joined once again by author, historian and cowboy poet Ken Mather, who has just published a new book, Frontier Cowboys and the Great Divide, the third in a series of the cowboy and ranching history.

“Ken’s ability to recite cowboy poetry is remarkable,” said Dinwoodie. “He’ll make you laugh and wipe a tear from your eye all in one poem.” Joining the fun is Dinwoodie’s stage band, made up of the popular multi-instrumentalist Dixon Zalit and smooth harmonies and bass playing by Kevin Bader. “If you ever wanted to learn how to yodel, Kevin will teach you in one lesson,” laughed Dinwoodie. Zalit again will captivate guests with his Spanish guitar, mandolin, and electric guitar as he accompanies the band on stage and around the campfire. “You can almost hear the cattle lowing as the evening winds down under the stars, singing songs around a campfire,” said Dinwoodie, who encourages those who have attended in the past to come and see the new show with friends and tourists to the Okanagan. “Where else can you ride a stagecoach, learn how to rope and yodel, eat steak, listen to music, poetry and drama all in one show?” Those dressed like a cowboy or cowgirl can qualify to win a Sunday brunch at the Cattlemen’s Club Restaurant. The Cowboy Dinner Show runs every Friday during July and August at 6:30 p.m. Tickets can be reserved online at okeeferanch.com or call 250-542-7868.

With the first long weekend of summer coming up and a forecast for hot and sunny weather, local lakes will attract more than the usual number of boaters — many of them operating illegally. In Canada, it’s illegal to operate a boat with a motor unless you have a federal pleasure craft operator card, no matter what size the boat or motor. In order to get the card, you have to take a boating safety course, either online or in person, at a cost of around $50. Not having the card could result in a $250 fine. One of the couple of dozen course providers accredited by Transport Canada is BoatSmart, and president Cameron Taylor says of the estimated 10.5 million boaters in Canada, only 3.5 million have cards, even though they’ve been required for the past 14 years. “Even if you only operate a boat once or twice a season, you need the card, and you should have one if you’re just a passenger too, in case you have to operate the boat,” he said. “There’s lots of information in the course and you’re sure to learn something, even if you don’t always use all the information. And, you may lose some bad habits.” He points out that 86 per cent of drowning deaths wouldn’t have happened if a personal floatation device was in use. “What if you’re knocked unconscious when you go overboard?” he asks. Even if you’re a very capable swimmer, without a pfd, you could drown. Statistically, he says young males in small open boats are the most at risk of drowning. “No one’s invincible.” Ensuring everyone in the boat is wearing their pfd is just one thing you’ll learn in the course. Another key lesson is to leave the alcohol on shore and take water on the boat with you. Be prepared for changing weather, with all required safety equipment, including fresh batteries for your flashlight, is another important lesson, he notes. On busy lakes, it’s especially important that you be alert to the actions of other boaters, and of how your activity will impact others. Courses can be taken online, and refresher courses are available as well. For a list of accredited course providers, go to the Transport Canada website at: www.tc.gc.ca where you click on Marine, then personnel training, or go to the BoatSmart website at: www.boatsmartexam. com/en if you’re ready to take the course.

by local groups in B.C. and across Canada to improve the conservation of fisheries. To add to this, we listened to the Pacific Salmon Foundation and dedicated all funds collected through the sale of the salmon conservation stamp to the foundation to continue its good work with communities to protect salmon habitat in our province. If you recall, your government designated the first ever marine park in the Scott Islands area. In budget 2013-14, we allocated $4 million to continue marine conservation measures that will better protect this area and the ocean

around it. Your government has signed on with the Copenhagen Accord. We are committed to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) by 17 per cent in 2020. We are well over half way there. This is significant because, at the same time, our economy has grown making this achievement even more significant. We were the first government in Canadian history to reduce greenhouse gases! Since 2006, your government has spent $17 billion to support and protect the environment. This $17 billion supported the eco-energy

initiatives targeting renewable energy, energy science and technology, and energy efficiency. Our clean air regulatory agenda will reduce GHGs and the eco-energy retrofit program for home-owners, made homes more energy efficient. And finally, budget 2013-14, added $50 million to protect Canada’s species at risk. The budget also allocated money to enhance oil and gas pipeline safety and tanker safety. Yes, Prime Minister Stephen Harper does have a plan for protecting the environment. Colin Mayes is Okanagan-Shuswap MP.

Report highlights improvement at local schools B.C.’s secondary schools rates 284 public and independent schools based on seven indicators using data from the annual provincewide exams administered for the B.C. Ministry of Education, as well as graduation and gradeto-grade transition rates.

Morning Star Staff

Three North Okanagan schools have shown improvement in a report issued by a B.C. think tank. Among the 26 B.C. secondary schools that have seen academic performance improve over five years, according to the Fraser Institute’s annual school rankings, are W.L. Seaton in Vernon, George Elliot in Lake Country and Clarence Fulton in Vernon. “Our report card consistently shows that school improvement is occurring all over B.C., from Prince George in the north to Grand Forks in the south and everywhere in between,” said Peter Cowley, Fraser Institute

The report card also includes important information about each school’s make-up, including parents’ average income, the percentage of ESL students, and the percentage of special needs students. The complete results for 284 secondary schools will be avail-

able at http://britishcolumbia.compareschoolrankings.org/secondary/ “Principals and teachers who have not yet found ways to improve their academic results might profit from talking to the staff at these schools,” Cowley said.

Ladies prepare to tee off for a cure at Predator operation with the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and, of course, the generosity of golfers and online donations. This year boasts a few dramatic changes. The first is the new location. After 10 successful years at the Vernon Golf and Country Club, the committee decided to shake things up and have moved to Predator Ridge Golf Resort. The second change is the time and date

The Wine, Women and Woods – Tee Off For the Cure Tournament will once again bring community-spirited women together to help raise funds for the Vernon Jubilee Hospital. This year’s goal is to raise funds toward digitizing the mammography suite. Over the past 10 years, $596,000 has been raised and all of it has stayed in the North Okanagan. This is achieved through co-

of the event. This year the event will open on Sept. 28 for the wine and appetizer reception with live and silent auction. Golf will be played Sept. 29 with cart decoration commencing at 8:30 a.m. Tee-off is 10:30 a.m. on the Predator course. Returning by popular demand is the live auction of caddies. “Open your hearts and wallets and help us raise funds for this cause. Caddies bring a special element to the game,” state the

organizers. “Along with this caddy auction there will be other wonderful items to be auctioned off live and through the silent auction. All of these items will be listed online at www. winewomenandwoods.com.” Registration is now open online. “The theme for this year is I am woman - hear me roar. So participants are asked to have some fun while designing costumes around the theme,” state organizers.

Progress continues to be made on Grindrod’s newest meeting place. A grand opening of the new Grindrod Community Hall will be held Aug. 10. “With this updated hall, we now have capacity for 120 people which will meet the needs of our community for many years to come,” said Herman Halvorson, project manager with the Grindrod Recreation Association. The association decided in February 2012 to construct a new facility because the previous hall was built in 1905 and was in poor condition. The total cost of the hall construction was about $400,000 “We have received support from many groups and individuals and truly appreciate the financial support,” said Halvorson. The most recent donation was $3,000 from the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan.

“It will go towards new chairs and tables,” said Halvorson. Fundraising contin-

ues because the parking lot needs to be paved. To support the fun-

draising campaign, call Halvorson at 250-8387407 or Lindsay Kibbe at 250-838-6096.

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT

The detail and scope of our application is matched only by our determination to do it right. WRITTEN BY JANET HOLDER

Project. Janet lives and works in Prince George.

After a decade of careful planning, our application is now before the regulatory authorities. But that doesn’t mean we are finished in making the case for Northern Gateway to British Columbians and all Canadians. The Northern Gateway Project Joint Review Panel (JRP) deadline for Final Argument has come and gone, and we believe we made the best case for an energy pipeline application ever in Canada’s history. Critical questions, affirmative answers. It all boils down to two questions the JRP must address in their report to the Governorin-Council. One is whether Gateway is in the Canadian public interest, and the second

Participants is the Project’s likelihood of causing significant adverse environmental impacts. The answers are clear. Gateway is urgently needed, meets all requirements for approval under the National Energy Board Act and is definitely in Canada’s interest. Given the commitments and safety measures we have proposed, the Project is not likely to cause significant adverse effects on the environment. Backed by independent experts in their fields. Northern Gateway’s written and oral JPR evidence was prepared and presented by many of Canada’s and the world’s foremost experts on the related subjects. Each had thorough knowledge of the Project and the relevant scientific and engineering studies completed in support of the Project. Their evidence in favour of Gateway was comprehensive, conclusive and compelling. Unprecedented in scope, detail and potential. Our application was defended by answering thousands of Information Requests and presenting a series of nine witness panels. Together with our partners, we will have spent approximately $500 million on this Project, before receiving approval, including environmental assessments, traditional land use studies, detailed engineering and consultation with communities and First Nations—all over the course of a decade.

Our application details the enormous value of connecting Canadian resources to markets that need those resources for their own economic and social development. We are completely confident that Gateway can be designed, constructed and operated in a safe and responsible manner— first and foremost. Flowing from this, there are the enormous benefits in terms of jobs and dollars to support schools, hospitals and social programs that define this country and this province.

Merging old and new technology A grant from the Vernon Teachers’ Association helps to enhance student field trips to Mackie Lake House Morning Star Staff

The Mackie Lake House Foundation is passionate about learning and providing opportunities for students to experience a taste of history. This year, the Vernon Teachers’ Association supported the Mackie Lake House Foundation School Program with a $1,500 grant. “This grant was used to purchase a laptop and software to enable the transfer of our collection of reel-toreel tapes, cassette tapes and records into digital format,” said Christine Kashuba, Mackie Lake House manager. “This collection includes teach-

lready the end of June. Everything is growing so fast and this includes the weeds. Last week, we added two more rain barrels to our collection. They came just in time to catch the heavy rain. With all the other containers and garbage pails full, we were able to store more than 600 gallons. All the small pails I had in the shed were also used up. I highly recommend every household have at least one or two barrels. Living in the Okanagan, this should almost be a must. We had our garden club picnic last Sunday. The weather was perfect with a soft breeze, sun and some clouds. This was a pot luck and as usual, the food was excellent. This was a good time to socialize and play a few games and of course talk about plants.

ing tapes that Paddy Mackie used in his French classes when he taught at Seaton.” Each spring the Mackie Lake House Foundation offers a field trip opportunity for School District 22 Grade 3 and Grade 6 students. Students experience a guided tour of the Historic Mackie Lake House detailing the history of the 1910 Lake House, the Mackie family and the Coldstream area. In 2013 this program involved 552 students as well as their teachers, aides and parent volunteers. The students also participate in an interactive experience in Fylton Forest, an on-site outdoor ecological classroom that facilitates exploration of the natural world. The Vernon Teachers’ Association grant also purchased a set of magnifying glasses to enable a detailed investigation of the flora and fauna students discover in Fylton Forest on the Mackie property. “We look forward to our 2014 school program as we bring history to life,” said Kashuba.

On June 21, we had our last session of the Intergenerational Landed Learning program at St. James School. Some of you that attended the People Place’s Garden Tour June 8 had a chance to look at the raised beds and all the vegetables that were grown by the Grade 4 students and their gardener friends. This is a fine program that teaches gardening to the young minds eager to learn. We had a cool start but everything really grew well and the big harvest for the rest

of the vegetables will be sometime in September at the return of classes. We all like to cut fresh flowers from our gardens and sometimes little tricks help make them look better. The following come from the book, 1,001 Gardening Secrets: 1. Keep cut flowers beautiful. Add two tablespoons each of sugar and vinegar to a quart of water. Pour the mixture in a vase and put in your flowers. The sugar feeds your blooms, and vinegar keeps them fresh a long time. 2. To hold flowers in place, trim off sharp edges of a small piece of chicken wire and crumple it loosely so it fits in the top of your container. Stick your stems between the wires, and your creation will stay put. 3. Trim leaves to prolong flowers. To

savour your bouquet for as long as possible, get your clippers out and cut off any leaves that are under water. These soggy leaves will rot and encourage bacteria to grow, which can mean a short life for your beautiful arrangement. 4. Clip stems to keep bouquet bright. When you bring flowers home from the market, trim off a half inch of each stem with a sharp knife. Then plunge the stems in room-temperature water. Make sure you cut on the diagonal and keep the ends under water at all times. This prevents air bubbles

from getting stuck at the end of the stem and blocking the water traveling up. 5. Protect furniture from water spills. Never set a bouquet of flowers or a potted plant directly on wooden furniture. Water spills can damage the surface. Instead, set vases and flower pots on decorative trays, mismatched saucers, or shallow bowls filled with pebbles. 6. Help flowers live a long life.

a respected elder who teaches the 24 children her mother tongue. “Look how far we’ve come. Just look at the children.” She embraces each one fondly as she hands them their certificates. “They’re all like my grandchildren,” she says, “only better — they listen!” Another tradition was started by their music teacher, Devon Muhlert, when she had students write their own song. The first two years, Muhlert, whom they named Mrs. Music, used games so they wouldn’t be intimidated. For the grads, the process started with brainstorming ideas of what had impacted them, and the impressions they’d take with them. Then they played them on the class set of native flutes. “We did a class song and a graduating song each year,” said Muhlert. “Each song has been very different, reflecting the character of the three or four grads. But you can’t sing while blowing a flute.

Music teacher Devon Muhlert (left) accompanies Maria Alexis on native flute and Mathew Jack as they perform the graduation song they wrote with their fellow Grade 7 students in the Okanagan Indian Band’s Cultural Immersion School. “This is the first year that the older kids started guitar, so now they’re able to sing and play.” High on the brainstorming list was dodgeball, played at lunchtime with Chad Marchand. Butterflies in chrysalis were another theme. Their song is titled We’re on Our Way: “We-ee-ee-ee play dodgeball all day i-in the fields the beginning of May.

We-ee see growing of butterfly wings, they’ll rise up high to see what the world brings. Yeh eh eh eh eh eh yeh and we say, We found the way to a wonderful day. Now all you people can sing a-along, sing with our graduation song. I know you’re eager to play and stay, but like those butterflies, we’re on our way.”

The vision of the school remains to preserve the sqilxw language, culture and rights, while also meeting and exceeding provincial learning outcomes. The 2013 graduating class of three is the first that started from Grade 1 all the way to Grade 7. They’ll likely continue to make their mentors proud as they start Grade 8 in Vernon schools.

Peas fresh from the pod

started picking a few of my own fresh peas last week, and fresh peas straight from the pod have been one of my favourite veggies since childhood. Back then, our garden would yield a good supply and I still recall us sitting around Mom like a pack of urchins, shelling for what seemed forever. I did think it was nice having her help us, though; little did I realize she cathi Litzenberger was there to prevent us from eating them all before they made it to the freezer. Fresh Pea salad 1 cup fresh mint leaves 2 dried dates, pitted 1/2 of a small serrano chili, stem removed Squeeze of fresh lemon juice; zest from the lemon 1-1/2 cups fresh shelled peas 1 small head of romaine lettuce, cut into shreds 1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds Fine-grain sea salt To make the mint-date dressing, purée the mint, dates, chili, lemon juice and zest using a food processor or hand blender. Blend until uniform in texture. Thin it out by adding a tablespoon of water at a time until it is the consistency that you can drizzle (about 2-3 tbsp. in total). Taste and adjust for lemon and spiciness. When you cook the peas, the key is to not overcook them. Fill a big bowl with ice water and set aside. Add about 6 cups of water to a medium sauce pan, add some salt (as you would pasta water) and bring the water to a boil. Add peas and cook for

kitchen wit & wisdom

between 20-30 seconds. You want them just barely tender, so they will pop in your mouth. Quickly drain and dunk the peas into the bowl of ice water. Just before serving, gently toss the peas, lettuce, and pumpkin seeds with about half of the dressing and a couple of pinches of salt. Taste and add more dressing if you like. Finish with a pinch or two of your favourite finishing salt. NOTE: If you end up with a dressing that is too spicy for your tastes, tame it with a dollop of plain yogurt. If you know you are sensitive to spiciness, you can always remove the seeds and veins from the chili in future versions. Serves 2-4. Gnocchi with culatello & Fresh Peas 500g. pkg. potato gnocchi (or use home-made) 1 cup fresh peas (frozen can be used in a pinch) 100 g. culatello or good quality pancetta, thickly sliced and cut into cubes Small handful of fresh mint leaves 1 or 2 crushed, finely chopped cloves of garlic Butter for frying Salt and pepper to taste Parmesan cheese Have everything ready, as gnocchi cooks very fast. Cook gnocchi in plenty of salted boiling water, and drain as soon as first few start rising to the surface. Before you put gnocchi into the water, add a good dollop of butter to a well-seasoned cast-iron frying pan (or equivalent pan). Add culatello (a wonderful Italian air-dried ham) to the butter once it is hot. Cook until culatello is starting to crisp, then add drained gnocchi to brown. Stir in peas and finish off by adding mint, finely chopped crushed garlic and parmesan to taste. Heat through and serve with a fresh salad. Serves 2-4 depending on how hungry people are.

RogeR TeppeR phoTos

Vernon athletes Myra Mattila (above), on the run, and Kim Hanson, giving the thumbs up as she heads out on the bike course, compete in the Kal RATS Sprint Triathlon Sunday morning at Kin Beach. The popular event drew 138 athletes.

Champness recaptures crown Morning Star Staff

After a one-year hiatus, Vernon’s Nathan Champness regained his Kal RATS Sprint Triathlon crown. Champness, who missed last year’s event recovering from hernia surgery, recorded his third Kal sprint win in four years, finishing the 750-metre swim, 18.5km bike and 5-km run in 58 minutes and 43 seconds. He was exactly four minutes ahead of runner-up Kelowna’s Chad Reid (1:02:43), who shaded Kelowna’s Gary Wade by just six seconds. Kelowna’s Dannica Wade was the top female (1:11:36), finishing ahead of Vernon athletes Laura Medcalf (1:12:43) and Alesha Miller (1:12:55). North Okanagan racers earning age-

group podium finishes include: Craig Goplen (1st, M50-54, 1:09:15), Scott Wallace (1st, M25-29, 1:11:28), Barrie Voth (2nd, M30-34, 1:15:20), Marin Carruthers (1st, U19 Girls, 1:16:08), Andre Ortmayr (3rd, M50-54, 1:19:08), Myra Mattila (1st, F50-54, 1:19:18), Christa Miller (3rd, F20-24, 1:19:48), Lynda Proce (1st, F55-59, 1:20:36), Mike Everett (2nd, M65-69, 1:21:30), Michael Wray (1st, M40-44, 1:25:58), Cathy Mori (3rd, F5559, 1:28:10), Curtis Wallace (3rd, M3034, 1:28:24), Terri Gillespie (3rd, F30-34, 1:32:344), Linda Conrad (2nd, F60-64, 1:41:47), Trevor Carpenter (3rd, M40-44, 1:45:36) and Shon Ostafew (1st, M60-64, 1:48:29). Meanwhile, Vernon’s Heather

Wurtele set a new course record in winning Ironman Coeur d’Alene Sunday in Washington. Wurtele crushed the 180-km bike leg in 5:07:03, and followed it up with a 3:09:02 marathon, setting a new benchmark of 9:16:02. Already the world’s No. 1 ranked woman in the Ironman 70.3, this was her first full distance Ironman race this season. Racing on the same day at Ironman 70.3 Mt. Tremblant, Que., Heather’s husband Trevor laid down an exceptional 21.1-km run (1:13:52) to take fourth overall in the pro elites. Mt. Tremblant will be the site for the 2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championships.

The Big O Tire-Turn-Key Ogopogos relished the rain as they doubled the Pushor Mitchell Advocates 4-2 Monday night at Marshall Field #1. Towering striker Mark Wasylyk scored twice as the tiremen ended their losing streak at three games in the Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League. The Mules went up first before Roland Riedstra did most of the work getting around the defenders and touching a pass to Wasylyk who fired it home. Nolan Clarke’s corker from the 18 ricocheted off a defender for an own goal, while tireless Volker Otto netted the winner from a cross from Ruben Cerventes. Wasylyk broke in alone and buried a low drive just inside the post for the clincher. Brad Conlin, Rob Ross and Leo Nadeau were at there usual best as the Tiremen improved to 4-5. The Advocates dipped to 1-6-2. Meanwhile, Rick Raber pulled the hat trick as the Leko Precast Camels shelled Cantinas 5-0 at Marshall #4. Raber, who recently came out of retirement, scored twice on feeds from Stu Whitling, including a spectacular diving header. Zane Klym, on a scramble, and Gord Howard, on a breakaway, completed the 8-0-1 Humpbacks’ attack. Ron Krause recorded his fourth straight shutout. Cantinas is 3-6-1. The North Country Appraisals Kickers extended their win streak to four with a 2-0 win over the Vernon Liquor Store Stars at Marshall #2. Steve Frost scored both goals, the first one when he caught keeper Ted Lurkins out of position in the first half, and the second on an indirect free kick. David Gadd earned the shutout for the 6-2-1 Kickers. The injury-riddle Liquormen (3-5-1) made a call to the Reserve team in Moose Jaw, calling up Rob Bauml for his first game of the campaign. The Rented Mules bounced shorthanded Bosman Accounting 3-1 at rain-drenched Parkinson Rec 16. Bosman got the only goal of the first half with a shot from close to centre from Gerry Geelkerken. A Mule defender shouted “Watch out for Skip” to keeper Blair Forrest as the shot approached.

Brady Stead-fast for Spall men’s title Kevin MitChell Sports Editor

A touch of Tin Cup with a splash of The Legend of Bagger Vance. That was sort of the picture Sunday at Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club as 19-year-old Brady Stead rallied to win the men’s club championship. Stead, a plus-1 handicap, carded a 1-over 72 Sunday after shooting 70 Saturday. He defeated Brooks Jones of Vernon by two strokes. Jones shot 67-77, scoring a quadruple nine on the par-5 ninth hole Sunday. “It’s pretty funny that I work out here as a bartender,” laughed Stead. “It was a lot of fun battling Brooks. We thrive off each other and we battled to the end. He played incredible the first day. He was putting on a putting clinic and I tried to match it on Day 2.” Stead, who just finished his second year of university golf with the Camosun Chargers in Victoria, doubled No. 1 before recording pars on the next two holes and birdies on holes four through six. “It felt pretty good to recover after my double bogey. I was hitting it pretty well all weekend and I have to give a shout out to new Vernon CPGA pro Brad Jones, who gave

me a putting lesson on Friday. He helped me with tempo so I sped it up.” Stead, who is working towards a marketing degree, also gave props to Spall pro Myles Johnson, his Camosun coach John Randle, his folks and the grounds crew for making the course playable after a week of rain. Stead moves on to the Zone 2 men’s amateur, this weekend at Nk’Mip Canyon Desert, in Oliver, and the B.C. Amateur, July 9-12, in Radium Hot Springs. First place was worth a bag, a Ping G25 hybrid and a year’s range pass. Stead plans to trade the bag and rescue club in for some fancy pants. Jones, who birdied four straight holes after his quad, had a triple on the par-four 14th. He pocketed a pull cart and a FootJoy shirt. Jones, 29, “hit one in the parking lot” for his quad. The three handicapper, who works in the Vernon pro shop, went out of bounds on 14. “He (Stead) was driving it straight and long,” said Jones. “He was overpowering the par fives, getting on in two and making the putts. He was making it look easy.” Defending champion Jarrett McNeal went 74-73-147 to take third place and a Ping K15 hybrid and glove. Former champ Paul Reid was fourth at 151, while Doug Kuhn fash-

ioned a 153. Lyle Hinds and Don Helm, both a 154, and Dave Schneider, at 159, rounded out the top-eight. Scott Pisiak was the low net champion (67-66-133), taking home the same prize package as Stead. Pisiak defeated Dyck Regier (65-68-133) by retrogression. Low net flight winners were: Bill Copeland (139), Jon Wood (135), Art Heale (137) and Trevor Buksa (139). Katrina Lenoury claimed the ladies’ title by producing 79-77-153. She won an Ogio bag, vest and 2013 range pass. Linda Spiller fashioned a 168 for second low gross, followed by defending champion Shelly Cooper, at 169, Brenda Howard, at 180 and Mary Lukacs, at 181. Anne Kelly was the overall low net champion at 133, receiving the same prize package as Lenoury. Cindy Hoffman (189), Deb Heale (192) and Ellie Nelson (194) were among the low gross leaders, while Dianne Hill took first flight low net at 140, Marj Griffin topped the second flight at 141, Kathryn Patton ruled the third flight at 140 and Sharon Fuhr won the fourth flight at 142. Nancy Laframboise, at 148, Sheryll Bissell, with a 141, Marg Wild, at 147, and Janie Crockett, with a 145, were runner-ups in the four flights.

Hoffman highlights Brown attack Continued from A27

Rookie Andy De Pieri scored the winner with a shot from the top of the box, then immediately feigned an injury and exited stage left. Glenn Mosher wrapped up the scoring with a tap in following a fine save by Pete Richter from a strong header from Mark Bopari. Newcomer Remco Wijnhorst and Kilmer Hagen of winless Bosman left with injuries early in the first half. Lionel Hoffman scored twice as Brown Benefits iced Penticton United 5-1 in a showdown at Parkinson 9. Dante Zanatta, Tony Gonzales and Max Hoogveld added singles for Brown (9-0), while Rob Jackson had a breakaway goal for Penticton (7-2), who lost their starting keeper early in the second half when he took down Gonzales on a breakaway. In Kelowna Men’s 35+ League action, shortstaffed Vernon Kal Tire lost 5-2 to the first-place

Alves Bros. in Rutland. With coach Kai Toplinrud, forwards Jesse Knight and Kriss Yargeau, midfielder Bryan Schenker, and defenders Damian Adams and Ryan Sharp missing, Kal Tire looked to its wiley old veterans to step up. Forwards Johnny Orton (of Vernon) and Ricardo Alves put Kelowna up 2-0 in a hurry with 19-goalman Morgan Marrs getting stoned by a diving Tiremen keeper Chris Bader a few minutes later. Kyle Bilinski made it 3-0 Kelowna in the second half before Kal Tire midfielder Geoff Straight delivered a beautiful run and top-cheddar finish. A few minutes later, on a Kal Tire goal kick blunder, Orton capitalized with a low shot. With about 15 minutes to go, Kal Tire defender Ryan Leibel swiped the ball and set up midfielder Tim McGowan on a run and sweet low finish. Bader made numerous huge stops to take the Okanagan Spirit Man of the Match.

Sarazin’s super seven puts Tigers in first The Vernon Source For Sports Tigers are in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League penthouse. How long they remain there depends on the Kelowna Raiders and Armstrong Shamrocks. The 11-3-1 Raiders will have a chance to regain the top seed heading into the playoffs when they host the Rocks in the final regular-season game Thursday night at Memorial Arena. The 4-8-3 Rocks have all but sewn up third-place ahead of the Kamloops Venom (5-10-1) based on a superior goal differential. The Cats host Game 1 of their best-of-five first-round series Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) in Vernon. Ryan Sarazin scored Vernon’s first seven goals as they outlasted the Shamrocks 10-8 Saturday night at Kal Tire Place. A lethal shooter, Sarazin finished the season as the Cats’ top scorer with 42-15-57 in 14 games, one ahead of Jordan Orr (19-37-56), who sat out the final game. “He was on a mission. Almost everything he threw at the net went in,” said Tigers’ co-coach Keith Hanna. “He’s quite accurate, and that, with the velocity he puts on the ball, it’s just great.”

The Tigers raced out to a 3-1 first-period lead as they capitalized on some disorganization in Armstrong’s zone. “We had a nice strong start. We’re trying to set the tone early and play our game,” said Hanna. “They’ve done a very good job of following our systems. That shows right from our goaltending and defensive zone coverage into our

transition and onto offence.” Armstrong stormed back in the second period on some slick pickand-roll plays on the powerplay to take a 5-4 lead. “That’s our motion offence – I drill that into them every practice,” said Armstrong head coach Bryan Cope. “They work and they look really nice when they work.” Jay Seaton, Craig Bigsby and

C&A ices Creamery Morning Star Staff

The C&A Contracting Canadians grounded Cold Stone Creamery Canadians 12-6 Sunday in the Thompson Okanagan Bantam A baseball finals Sunday at Edith Gay Park in Rutland. Elliott Landy got the start for C&A in a showdown of Vernon teams, going five innings and striking out eight batters. Nathan Nesbitt closed out the last two innings and shut down Cold Stone. Ty Wellman was 3-for-3 and three RBI, while Brett Lambert was 2-for2 with an RBI and Chris Riva was 1-for-1 with three walks to spark the winners. Coached by Chris Wellman and assisted by Ken Liefke, C&A also claimed the regular-season pennant. The Contracting crew smothered Cold Stone 14-0 Friday night to open up the final-four playoffs at Marshall Field. Nesbitt went four innings and fanned eight, while Tyler Liefke pitched the final three innings, mowing down five. Liefke was 2-for-2 at the plate. C&A iced South Okanagan 12-5 Saturday at Edith Gay Park in Rutland with Wellman hurling 5 2/3 innings and striking out four. Liefke closed things out with two K’s. Arron Fairbairn was 3-for-3, while Rayne Goodwater was 2-for-2 and Bailey Wellman went 2-for-3. The Contractors gave up a thee-

run homer in the seventh to fall 9-8 to the Rutland Wolfpack. Caleb Versteeg got the start and was relieved by Arron Fairbairn, who locked up Rutland for four innings. The Cold Stone boys earlier dusted off Rutland 13-3 in five innings Saturday afternoon and toppled South Okanagan 6-1 Sunday. Kyle Ciurka struck out seven over five innings against Rutland with Corey Anderson pitching the final two. Noah Foufoulas was solid behind the plate. Landon Currie doubled in Ethan Huizinga and later singled, while Jacob Soucy ripped a two-run triple bringing in Tony Campen and Riley Preston. Huizinga singled in Greg Geistlinger in the sixth. In Saturday’s win over the Wolfpack, Anderson and Ethan Sawka were strong on the mound, while Hayden Vardon jumpstarted the offence with an RBI-double in the first inning. Soucy drove in Isaac Waldemaras and Campen with a double and Foufoulas followed with a two-run single, scoring Preston and Soucy, in a big second inning. Currie chased down a grounder past first to beat the runner to the bag before gunning the ball to Soucy for the tag out at home for a deluxe double play in the second. Vardon smacked a two-run double in the third and Currie stroked an inside-the-park dinger in the fifth, scoring Geistlinger.

United U15s win stateside Morning Star Staff

The Vernon United Under 15 Rep girls soccer team appears primed for the upcoming provincials in North Vancouver. Brett Bandy’s ultra-talented crew bounced the Bellingham Rangers FC 3-1 in Sunday’s final of the Bellingham Blast Tournament. Hanna Akkurt opened the scoring early when she schooled the defence and buried a beauty. Minutes later, Cayleigh Graham tapped in a rebound off an Akkurt shot. It was 2-1 Vernon at the half. Jordynne Tomiak registered some clutch saves and the Vernon midfielders and back line were marvellous as Bellingham pressed for the equalizer. Graham netted the clincher after a sweet corner by Lydia Wood. Vernon put on a free work ethic clinic while beating the defending champions, who managed only a few shots on net. There were six teams in the field. “Everyone played with a ton of heart and contributed every game,” said Bandy, who takes United to the provincial B Cup, July 4-7. Vernon counted four goals in nine minutes in

the first half en route to a 6-1 semifinal win over Mt. Vernon FC Sunday morning. Akkurt (3), Graham (2) and Maddy Laranjo supplied the offence with Maya Bandy setting up Graham’s second goal on a nice through ball. Woods drew the assist on Graham’s first off a free kick, while Emilee Kronbauer pushed up from the back to set up Akkurt’s hat-trick snipe. United battled Burnaby Fusion to a scoreless draw and stopped the Kamloops Blaze 3-0 Saturday after blanking North Vancouver 5-0 Friday. Laranjo, from a Wood corner, Akkurt, from Laranjo after dancing around two defenders, and Laranjo with a shot from near centre, accounted for United’s goals versus Kamloops. Tomiak was in net. Kate Healy sprinted down the flank and buried United’s first goal against North Van. Kronbauer redirected Laranjo’s corker to make it 2-0 at the half. Kailyn Halvorson converted after Healy used her jets to get the ball deep and deliver a magical cross, while Laranjo scored from Graham, and Graham romped through the defence and went short side, to finish the attack.

Former Vernon Viper captain Kevin Kraus is the Salmon Arm SilverBacks’ new assistant coach Kraus, 23, joins the B.C. Hockey League team after spending the past two seasons as head coach/GM of the KIJHL’s Revelstoke Grizzlies. He went 64-32-3-7 and won a Doug Birks Division championship in 2012. As a player, the Huntington Kevin Kraus Beach, Calif. product played in the WHL with Kamloops and Tri-City before winning back-to-back BCHL and RBC Cups as a defenceman with the Vipers, captaining the club during his final BCHL season. Kraus enjoyed a brief stint in professional hockey

in the CHL (Texas Brahmas) and SPHL (Pensacola Ice Flyers) before transitioning into coaching. “I’m very excited to be joining the SilverBacks,” said Kraus. “I look forward to working with a very motivated and passionate staff in Salmon Arm this coming season.” Said SilverBacks’ head coach/GM Troy Mick: “We’re thrilled to add a proven winner like Kevin to our coaching staff. Our players will benefit greatly from his experience as a player because he knows what it takes to win and the sacrifices involved in becoming a champion. “Kevin has done a great job in developing players for our league during his time in Revelstoke. I’ve known him for quite a few years now and he is without question ready for the next step.” Kraus will also take on the role of strength and conditioning coach with the SilverBacks.

The

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder STAYMAN HAS ITS VARIOUS USES When beginners learn bridge, they are usually taught two bidding conventions: Blackwood and Stayman. They might also learn transfers into the majors, a complement of Stayman. This week, let’s look at Stayman in its simplest form and in its extensions. Interestingly, Stayman was not invented by Sam Stayman, but by his then bridge partner, George Rapee. But Stayman wrote the first article published on the convention, and his name stuck. (It was independently devised by Jack Marx from England.) The basic use of Stayman is to find a 4-4 fit in a major

suit. Remember, in notrump, a 4-4 fit will produce at most four tricks. But if that suit is trumps, you will often generate an extra winner by ruffing a loser. (And on a cloudless day, you will gain eight tricks from the suit.) Opener bids one notrump, and responder replies two clubs. If the opener has one four-card major, he bids two of that suit. If he has two four-card majors, he rebids two hearts. And if he has no four-card major, he answers two diamonds. Then the responder judges what to do next. In today’s example, North uses Stayman despite his poor suit to try to find a 4-4 spade fit. When successful, he raises to game. West leads the heart king.

This deal is easy if the trumps are 3-2. Win the first trick, cash the two top trumps, and drive out the club ace. Here, South loses only three tricks: one spade, one heart and one club. Finally, observe that three no-trump should be defeated after the heartking lead.

sector jobs has declined since Clark launched her jobs plan, and her government continues to cut the budget for job skill training. Dix said the NDP government of the 1990s saw an increase of 129,000 people in interprovincial migration, and during Gordon Campbell’s term, there was a net increase of 64,000. Clark shrugged off the numbers, saying B.C.’s overall population continues to grow. “More people are coming here than are leaving, and we need to continue to work to make sure that more people are staying,” Clark said. “We’re competing hard with Alberta and the oil sands to keep people here.” B.C.’s rising total population is a result of international immigration, offset by the losses to other provinces by people moving within Canada. Ontario has also steadily lost people inter-provincially in recent years, including a national high of 6,823 in the first three months of this year.

More people continue to move from B.C. to other provinces than migrate west, according to the latest Statistics Canada estimates. Quarterly Statistics Canada figures show a net loss of 1,611 people from B.C. to other provinces from January Christy Clark to March this year. That is the seventh straight quarter of net out-migration from B.C., with the last net increase of 73 people recorded in the April-June Adrian Dix quarter of 2011. In 2012, while B.C. was a net loser of about 7,000 in interprovincial movements, Alberta gained about 43,000 and Saskatchewan gained about 2,500 people. NDP leader Adrian Dix said the latest totals mean B.C. has lost a net 12,000 people to other provinces since Premier Christy Clark took over. Dix said the number of private

6 Feb. 1975 - 2 May 2013 Benjamin lived with much determination and character. We have all suffered a great loss. I truly wish we could explain the feelings of pride and beauty that move through us in great waves in reflecting on the story of his life. We cannot believe this has happened. Ben was born at Meteghan River, Nova Scotia, February 6th, 1975. During his younger years he was home-schooled and grew up in nature on the banks of the Kouchibouguac river in New Brunswick. Ben was a person with few words but keen observations. He had a highly developed sense of curiosity and a thirst for learning that led him to travel far and wide picking up rare skills and many languages. He graduated from PVSS in Armstrong BC in 1992, and later completed a degree in linguistics from the University of Alberta. Ben traveled extensively in Europe and Asia. He studied in France and Japan and then began to teach in Japan, Taiwan, and China. During his time in Japan he became involved in traditional theater and dance, continuing to hone his fine appreciation for rural pottery techniques and aesthetics. He published a book: Traditional Japanese Dances of Himeshima in 2004. He was an active environmentalist. He was an artisan dedicated to raw materials that he used to communicate his great appreciation for nature. Ben had an acutely sensitive connection to nature, and often found it difficult to face people in the present lifestyle, which we so blindly pursue. In his wish to share what is healthy and just with the world, he was constantly studying the Internet, pursuing a great interest in communication. He was a very active founding member of Potters Without Borders and believed strongly in the rights of people to have access to clean drinking water, rather than for it to be corrupted and polluted by greed and corporate interest. He knew the importance of these things. After spending years living in Asia, he married and had a daughter in China. He was a tender and attentive father amazing us all with his deep capacity to express love and support for his little girl. He is predeceased by his father Don and survived by his wife Fei, his daughter Wu-xi, his mother Isao, his brother Kai, and many friends and students who have been touched by his sincerity, kindness, and wisdom. We miss him so much. May some of the seeds he scattered sprout in each of us.
