New home takes flight for legion RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A growing friendship has provided Vernon’s Royal Canadian Legion with a new lease on life. Just weeks after closing its lounge, the legion branch kicks off its first meat draw Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Fraternal Order of Eagles hall on 25th Avenue. “It’s kind of exciting because we’re being reborn,” said Al Berg, a legion member. An office will be rented in the basement and meat draws will be in the Eagles’ lounge Saturdays. Special events, like dances, can be held in the building’s hall. The legion was forced to restructure because it was completely reliant on revenue from the 29th Street lounge to cover utility bills, rent and wages. However, fewer people were walking through the door and that impacted the bottom line. “They were in danger of losing their charter and that would have been horrible for the community,” said John Mayrhofer, Eagles president. Legion gaming activities, such as the meat draw, raised more than $31,050 last year for community charities. It cannot go towards operating expenses. The legion’s poppy campaign raised $32,435 in 2012 for veterans and their families. John Miller, legion president, has been
thrilled with the support shown by Eagles’ members. “Everyone here has been very responsive,” he said. While there has been some speculation that one group may want to take the other over, those views are quickly dismissed by Mayrhofer and Miller. “I don’t know where people get the idea of competition because we are in the same business of helping people in the community,” said Mayrhofer. “Don’t use the amalgamating word because what we’re doing is working together.” The legion has 840 members and the Eagles have about 300. “We will prove that this works,” said Miller, adding that the arrangement could serve as a template for other groups to remain active while reducing overhead costs. Eagles’ activities will continue as they always have, including the Friday dinner and meat draw. As part of restructuring, the legion has received help from the City of Vernon and Bruce Blankley, with Marjack Leasing, the owner of the former legion lounge on 29th Street. ROGER KNOX/MORNING STAR “He was more than helpful during the John Miller (left), Royal Canadian Legion president, shakes hands with John Mayrhofer, Fraternal transition. I can’t say enough about the Order of Eagles president, on a deal that will see the legion use space in the Eagles hall on 25th man,” said Miller of Blankley.
Railway closure drives economic uncertainty There are concerns that a failed rail venture could throw economic development off the tracks. Kelowna Pacific Railway has filed for bankruptcy and that means train travel between Vernon and Kamloops and Vernon to Lumby has ceased. Lumby Mayor Kevin Acton said the move is another setback in trying to attract new business to the village. “Any industry that’s been looked at wants viable rail access,” said Acton. Also considering the potential impact is Kevin Poole, Vernon’s economic development manager. “We are well aware of the situation and are discussing it with industry,” he said. Canadian National Railway, which owns most of the
track, isn’t speculating on whether another company may take over or if rail service will end permanently. “We are working with the receiver on the process going on,” said Emily Hemer, CN’s regional manager of public affairs. Hemer added that Kelowna Pacific still has a lease to the track. Vancouver-based Boale, Wood and Company, which is overseeing bankruptcy, also wouldn’t say if rail cargo will resume. “We hope to come up with a game plan in a week or so,” said John McEown, a trustee with Boale, Wood. A number of businesses are being impacted by the lack of rail service including Tolko Industries. “We have a contingency plan for transportation interruption,” said Janice Lockyer, Tolko’s communications advisor.
All product from the mills in Lumby, Lavington and Spallumcheen is now being transported by truck. “We are reaching out to our customers and informing them on how we will get their shipments to them on time,” said Lockyer. KPR had been operating the short-line since 2000 and it had between 40 and 50 employees mostly based in Vernon. “We are very concerned about the situation with Kelowna Pacific Railway. They are a vital part of the transportation infrastructure in the region and the cessation of service is having an immediate impact on the shipment of goods to export markets,” said George Duffy, Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce general manager. “We have contacted both the B.C. and Canadian chambers of commerce to seek assistance in finding solutions as quickly as possible.”

Alert officer prevents fire
roger kNox Morning Star Staff
A date has been set for a Supreme Court justice to determine a perjury case against a former Vernon teacher and administrator. Justice Geoff Barrow will render his decision in the matter against Deborah Louise Ashton in Vernon Supreme Court July 26. Ashton is charged with two counts of perjury pertaining to statements she made in her first trial on five counts of allegedly having a sexual relationship with a former student. That trial ended in a hung jury. A Supreme Court justice found Ashton not guilty on all five counts at her second trial. She was charged with perjury before the second trial with Crown alleging that Ashton made false and misleading statements in regards to a bracelet she allegedly bought her accuser, who cannot be named because of a publication ban, and Ashton’s claim that she always picked up and dropped off her son at day care. The perjury trial started in March but closing submissions for both sides were delayed due to scheduling conflicts. Closing arguments were given on Friday, June 28.

An alert RCMP officer is being praised for preventing a potential apartment fire tragedy in downtown Vernon. The officer was conducting downtown patrols shortly before 3:30 a.m. Sunday when he thought he heard a fire alarm coming from an apartment building on 30th Avenue. The alarm sounded like a private residential smoke alarm coming from the second floor on the east side of the building. “The officer got out of his vehicle to investigate the alarm,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “He got into the building and went to several floors before discovering the alarm in a third-floor unit.” The officer looked through a small mail slot in the door to the unit and could see a kettle left on the stove actively overheating. Surrounding plastic was melting and about to catch fire. “He could not get anyone inside to answer the door so the officer kicked the door in to gain entry to the suite,” said Molendyk. “He removed the kettle from the stove to prevent a fire in the apartment building.” Inside the unit was a 36-year-old man sleeping in a bedroom. Molendyk said the man was heavily medicated as he suffers from several illnesses and is an amputee of both legs. The officer spoke to the man who had no recollection of leaving the kettle on the stove. “Our officer dealt with the kettle before a fire started so the fire department was not called,” said Molendyk. “There was a smell of plastic in the air but venting the room cleared it out.” There were no injuries or property damage. “A fire was prevented thanks to a working smoke alarm and an alert officer investigating the sound,” said Molendyk.

Bear complaints remain high roger knox Morning Star Staff
Bear complaints are still a daily occurrence for North Okanagan conservation officers. On June 11, Sgt. Josh Lockwood, operations supervisor for the North Okanagan Conservation Service, reported that since April, in the City of Vernon, there had been 97 black bear complaints with 89 of those calls relatJosh Lockwood ed to garbage. In the North Okanagan region, there had been 199 bear complaints with 119 related to bears looking for food in garbage cans and bags.
Lockwood said Monday the numbers are not going down. “We’re still having difficulty with garbage,” he said. “Communities need to take responsibility of their garbage or they will have bears coming in. The public is expecting us to come in and destroy all of these bears. That’s not going to happen.” One of the main problem areas had been the Foothills. However, Lockwood said that since City of Vernon WildSafe B.C. coordinator Marnie Cuthill began educating the residents about keeping their garbage stored and away from bears, there hasn’t been a complaint from The Foothills. Cuthill was hired at the end of May and works for the B.C. Conservation Federation based out of Vernon. “A lot of the complaints are now getting directed there,” said Lockwood. “Thanks
to Marnie there is a lot more education and public awareness.” So far this year, Lockwood estimates that conservation officers have had to destroy “seven or eight” bears. One was on the weekend at a local trailer park where a bear was found in a cherry tree. Lockwood said the fruit was not being picked on the tree. Bears helping themselves to fruit is unusual for this time of year, he said. To report problem wildlife, you can call 1-877-952-7277 or *7277 on a cell phone. Cuthill can be reached at 250-306-2286 for information, or by e-mail at vernon@ wildsafebc.com. Information can also be found online at www.wildsafebc.com. Her office also addresses other wildlife concerns like deer and cougars, and will provide information on coyotes.

Boat safety a problem on small lakes roger knox Morning Star Staff
Boaters on the area’s larger lakes are getting the message about safety. Not so much on the smaller lakes. Sgt. Josh Lockwood, operations supervisor for the North Okanagan Conservation Office, reported July long weekend compliance numbers on Monday. “No real problems on the big lakes, like Okanagan and Shuswap,” said Lockwood. “There were some issues on the
smaller lakes like Mara and Sugar.” Specifically, said Lockwood, two separate patrols of Sugar Lake north of Cherryville showed zero compliance with safety regulations. “Everybody got a warning notice or a violation ticket for having a number of safety items missing,” he said. The big lakes were not free of issues as officers found out while conducting Operation Dry Water, a national safe boating initiative on the holiday weekend.
One man was found in a canoe in the middle of Okanagan Lake with no life jacket or safety equipment aboard the canoe. He received two tickets of $282.50 each. Three boats were taken off the lake because nobody was sober enough to operate the vessels. “The boats were stationary when we checked them but had they been in operation, the operator would have been processed for operating a motor vessel while impaired,” said Lockwood.
The three boats were towed to a marina dock and could not be moved until a sober operator could be found. All operators must carry their boat operator’s license (PCOC) on the boat at all times. The RCMP would like to see boaters carry a second piece of photo identification along with their boater’s license. That second piece of ID can be a good photocopy of your driver’s licence. If you have just purchased a new or used boat, the boat has to be
Tel: 250-546-3013 Fax: 250-546-8878 Toll Free: 1-866-546-3013
registered (numbers on bow of the boat). If it is a used boat you must have it transferred into the new owner’s name. If the operator has failed to do this and cannot produce the registration from Transport Canada, a fine could result. Wildlife and police officers will continue to patrol area lakes – big and small – throughout the summer to make sure everyone has a safe boating season.

Blaze rips through travel trailer Morning Star Staff
Two people in a parked car at Sparkling Hill Resort escaped serious injury Saturday when a travel trailer beside their vehicle blew up. Vernon Fire Rescue Service crews responded to a report of a travel trailer explosion and fire at Sparkling Hill shortly before 8 a.m. “The fire was spreading from the trailer to the hillside,” said Capt. Reinhard Mann in a press release. “Crews applied a hose line to stop the spread of flames into adjacent trees and brush. Once the fire was extinguished, fire crews managed to make
entry into the trailer remains and shut off the propane tanks.” Flying debris was spread over 100 feet and damaged several vehicles. Two occupants of a vehicle parked next to the trailer at the time of explosion escaped without injury. Upon investigation, it was believed that a propane leak occurred inside the unit and was possibly ignited by the refrigerator pilot light. The trailer was insured and the owners from Fort McMurray, Alta. were thankful that no one was injured in the blast.
Impaired friends get vehicles impounded Morning Star Staff
It was back-to-back impaired driving arrests for police in Spallumcheen Monday. At about 1:30 a.m. at the Otter Lake Road roundabout, a police officer checked a vehicle with a 37-yearold female driver who showed signs of impairment. “The driver blew a fail in the roadside screening device and was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. The officer offered to take the woman home but he was informed that a friend was on the way to get her. “About 10 minutes later, a vehicle approached the
check stop and the officers spoke with the 47-yearold woman driver,” said Molendyk. “The driver told the officer she had come to pick up her friend who had just been stopped for being impaired. While the officer was speaking to the second driver, he noticed a strong odour of liquor on the breath of the second driver.” The second driver was asked to provide breath samples in the screening device, and she also failed. The second driver was also issued a 90-day IRP and both vehicles were impounded by officers for 30 days. “Both drivers accepted a ride back to their residences by the officers this time,” said Molendyk.

Greater Vernon residents have a chance to rally around their neighbours in need. The July Feed The Need food drive runs Thursday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the 30th Avenue Safeway. “With more than 850 children from more than 1,250 households accepting assistance through the food bank so far in 2013 we certainly are appreciative of the continued support we receive through this annual event”, said David David MacBain MacBain, Salvation Army community ministries director. “We are hoping that Feed The Need will help replenish the shelves as we have run low on several standard food hamper items.” The fundraiser at the downtown Safeway is hosted by Sun FM. “With the enthusiasm of Sun FM staff and their supporters, more than $23,500 worth of food and cash donations have come to the Salvation Army in an effort to assist our aid to those in need,” said MacBain. If donors would like to receive a free cookie, they can make their donation of non-perishable food items Thursday at the 27th Street, Fruit Union or Okanagan Landing Subway locations. Items currently needed at the food bank are peanut butter, canned tomatoes and sauce, vegetables, fruit, rice, brown beans, lunch meat and stew.

An investigation into cocaine trafficking led to three arrests Thursday. Vernon-North Okanagan task force officers were conducting an investigation on three Vernon residents for suspected cocaine trafficking shortly before 2 p.m. “The investigation led to the arrest of two men, aged 28 and 19, and one 19 year-old woman, all from Vernon,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk Gord Molendyk. “They were all in a 1998 Chevy car in the 3100 block of 19th Street.” The 28-year-old man was found to be in possession of approximately half-an-ounce of cocaine. He was taken into custody and later released on a promise to appear in court to face a charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking. The other two individuals were not detained by police.

New community minister unveils projects Three North Okanagan projects receive funding Morning Star Staff
Three new recreational projects have been unveiled in Greater Vernon and Lumby. The facilities include a spray park and outdoor fitness circuit at Lumby’s Oval Park, a new playground at the Vernon
Recreation Complex and accessible washrooms at three beaches. “These projects are wonderful additions to their communities,” said Coralee Oakes, community development minister. “Through the community recreation program, we wanted to provide greater access to recreation amenities. These facilities are more than just opportunities for physical activities, they are also places where community life thrives – where people make friends, feel connected and build memories.”
Besides the provincial government, the other funding partner was the Regional District of North Okanagan. “These amenities are a huge upgrade in quality and are welcomed enthusiastically,” said Patrick Nicol, RDNO chairperson. RDNO received a $400,000 grant for the cost of the new washroom buildings at Paddlewheel Park and Kin Beach, while the regional district covered the remaining cost of the washroom building at Kal Beach.
As well, the regional district was awarded a grant of $72,274 for a project that included the soon to be completed playground at the recreation complex. For the creation of the spray park and fitness circuit in Lumby, the Village of Lumby received a grant $348,258. Oakes presented appreciation plaques to representatives of Teddy’s Devils and Martin’s Angels Sunshine Coach Society, and Lumby Lions Club Society for their contributions of $30,000 each towards the project.

Fire boat to have new home by fall Morning Star Staff
By early fall, a new waterfront building will be in place to house the North Westside Fire Department’s fire boat and mobile marine water supply. The Regional District of Central Okanagan has awarded a $73,000 contract for the detailed design and construction of the new boathouse, which will be accessed in the southern portion of Killiney Beach Park. “Staff has spent much of the past year documenting and making the applications for the boathouse, obtaining the necessary environmental approvals and waterfront licenses from the province,” said Bruce Smith, communications officer. “Once the last of these permissions was received in late February, staff began
laying out the criteria required for designing and building the structure. Regional parks services also gave its approval to locate the boathouse in a section of the community park.” Burton Marine and Pile Driving has been selected as the contractor following a request for proposal process.

Public left on sidelines
reater Vernon politicians are making major changes to parks and recreation, they say, on behalf of residents. But where have residents been in the process? An advertisement in Sunday’s Morning Star outlined 36 parks the Regional District of North Okanagan will hand over to the City of Vernon. Residents are provided with the opportunity to ask questions if they want, but the ad goes on to say, “the title transfers are proposed to take effect Jan. 1, 2014.” Not once is the public asked if they actually support this move. Similarly, the city is not seeking constituent authorization to turn over ownership of Kal Beach to the regional district. Now, a parallel process has also been occurring over Greater Vernon’s recreation facilities, including Kal Tire Place, the recreation complex, Priest Valley Arena and Civic Arena. That may not seem Richard Rolke like a big deal as the city already has title to all of the structures except for Kal Tire Place. But keep in mind, that over the decades, Coldstream and electoral area taxpayers have invested millions of dollars in upgrades to these facilities and some of the rec complex’s parking lots were actually purchased by RDNO. Based on that, the case can be made that city ownership of facilities is tenuous at best. Kal Tire Place’s deed will be handed over to the city, making it an asset for Vernon, but Coldstream and the electoral areas will still be responsible for their portion of the 10 years left in debt borrowed to construct the facility. A similar situation will also occur when Civic Arena is abandoned and a new ice sheet is constructed. All Greater Vernon residents would vote in a referendum to borrow funds and carry debt, but the facility would be owned by the city. The interesting aspect to all of this is that Coldstream and the electoral areas would sim-

ply cut a cheque annually to ensure their residents have access to the facilities. Those jurisdictions would not be involved in decisionmaking and the only oversight would come from reviewing the city’s financial statements. Some officials argue pressure can be applied on the city every five years when the contract can be renewed. Obviously, if the city wants to maintain the agreement, it may be willing to negotiate. But on the flip side, Coldstream and the electoral areas may have to accept what Vernon offers because they can’t afford to build their own arenas and pools. While Coldstream and the electoral area residents will continue to pay 32 per cent of the overall operating cost of recreation facilities, will city officials treat their concerns the same as those coming from Vernon constituents? There is a difference between partners and customers. Now it should be pointed out that the concept of streamlining decision-making and operations is valid. The current system of RDNO being in charge but the city doing the day-to-day work under contract has been cumbersome. Instead of turning everything over to the city, why not let the regional district own and manage the facilities? After all, all of the jurisdictions are part of the regional collective and they would have a voice at the table. Ultimately, the proposed arrangement may make sense and the interests of all residents, no matter where they live, could be served by the city calling the shots. But it should be remembered that these facilities are public assets and taxpayers have invested millions of dollars in them. They also rely on these facilities for key services. How do the officials of Vernon, Coldstream and the electoral areas know that their constituents favour this major shift? They may have the authority to act alone, but is that right? Transparency and accountability are fundamental to our democratic system as is the notion of voter assent. It is time to slow the process down and let the people have their say.
Summer is finally here and the living is good in the North Okanagan. As the mercury begins to consistently reach the 30 degree Celsius level on a daily basis, residents and visitors alike are hitting the lake to cool down and have some fun. Enjoy. That’s just one of the great things about living in this part of Canada, the opportunity for recreation is literally at your doorstep and the choices are only limited by your knowledge of the area. Big lakes. Small lakes. Famous beaches. Hidden gems. They are all there for our enjoyment and all we ask is you enjoy them safely and responsibly for everyone’s sake, including your own. Authorities recently released the Canada Day long weekend compliance statistics and the numbers look good on the bigger lakes. “No real problems on.... Okanagan and Shuswap,” said Sgt. Josh Lockwood. However, he also reported that some of the smaller lakes, like Sugar and Mara, did have significant issues, including zero compliance with safety regulations on the lake near Cherryville. This reveals what could be a disturbing trend, that people think safety patrols are only on bigger lakes and that rules somehow don’t apply to lesser lakes, therefore why worry about compliance? Well, for one, it’s supposed to be about safety on the water, and that means any sized lake, and, two, obviously enforcement is being conducted on more than just Okanagan Lake. So, please, beat the heat and enjoy the lake but follow the rules of the land, and water, while staying safe and keeping your money in your own pocket at the same time.

Rallying around the RBC Cup
n July 4, the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee showed commendable leadership when they agreed to further support the 2014 RBC Cup. The host committee appreciates the regional district's backing of the event. Financial and staff support from the regional district and the City of Vernon are essential in running a cost-controlled event. Combined with sponsorship dollars and gifts-in-kind, municipal subsidies will help keep ticket prices affordable. Our civic leaders clearly support this national event, which will generate between $3.5 million and $4 million of economic activity over the 10 days of the tournament and its related events. We urge local business and hockey fans to join in making the next RBC Cup the best ever. Have you heard the saying that it takes an entire village to raise a child? Well, it takes an entire community to ensure the success of a national tournament of this magnitude. We saw that level of support this May in Summerside, P.E.I., where attendance records were set in a community less than half the size of Vernon. We plan to draw visitors from across Canada this
GReat City I had a relative from Oregon visiting Vernon. One morning, she wished to visit our downtown area. We are both walkers so at 8 a.m., we were off on foot to see some of the highlights of this city. We were both pleased with the cleanliness of the streets and the lovely assortment of flowers at city hall and Justice Park. Of course, Mother Nature has been helping too — no dust and the streets were swept very clean. What a welcome sight. I was pleased to show off my city of Vernon. They plan to return to see our floral clock and the many murals that Michele Loughery has painted, and I am really happy to assist them with a tour. J. yaremchuk westside ByeLeCtion Kudos to Mr. Griffin (letter to the editor, Party leader gets to be premier) for his erudite explanation concerning our provincial political system as it relates to a premier's options subsequent to
coming May. Recently, that marketing drive received a healthy injection of $14,450 from the tourism advisory committee that administers Vernon's hotel tax fund. We are using that money to attract visitors for an exciting Okanagan vacation combined with the hockey tournament. Our goal is a minimum of 150 visitors over and beyond the usual number of travelling fans. A conservative estimate places the total of that additional spending at about $180,000. Out-of-town visitors spent about $2 million in Summerside this year and we will better that mark. The Regional District of North Okanagan, the City of Vernon, and the tourism committee are investing in Greater Vernon. Hockey fans, it's your turn. The best seats will go fast, especially when Viper season ticket holders move to guarantee their seats by their Sept. 15 deadline. Keep your eyes peeled for special incentives that will be announced soon. And please join us in thanking our civic leaders for supporting an event that once again will bring national recognition to the North Okanagan.

suffering defeat in their own riding despite the election of their party. He failed, however, to mention the premier's other alternative in that regard. Apparently, the defeated premier also has the option to resign as party leader. It is interesting to note in all of this discussion, despite the reported extraordinary cost to hold a byelection, I understand in excess of $500,000, at the taxpayers' expense I might add, the defeated premier courageously marches on. So much for fiscal responsibility and effective economic management. I wonder if our seniors in wheelchairs would appreciate this moment of inspiration and, furthermore, will the taxpayer also be on the hook if she is defeated once again and insists on forcing another byelection, and on and on? Perhaps you can answer that question for us Mr. Griffin and, by the way, possibly our own elected member of the Legislature
can provide us with his opinion in this matter. J. swartz Gas pRiCes Sigh. In the Society of Self Flagellates, of which we apparently are all members, I guess it's my turn to complain and protest the price of gasoline in B.C. generally, but especially here in the Okanagan. It's galling that we're paying unusually high prices in the Okanagan even compared to Vancouver, Victoria, the rest of Vancouver Island, and much of the rest of the southern part of the province. And B.C. is second only to the far north, Northwest Territories, etc., for the highest average gas prices in Canada. Even provinces that have traditionally been higher, or close to the same, like Saskatchewan, are lower. Why are B.C. and the Okanagan being targeted? Is it just our turn or are we perceived as really apathetic consumers who will just meekly pay what they determine? There is nothing in the cur-
rent world situation or the price of a barrel of oil that justifies the current pump prices. I'm sure some local dealer ("It's beyond our control") or company rep has a logical explanation so, please enlighten us. Gasoline prices did also spike briefly in the U.S. a month or so ago, but they have been going back down steadily in just about every state. My wife and I happened to be in Osoyoos for a few days and, yes, we decided to pop down to Oroville to check things out. On May 31, gas was $3.97 per U.S. gallon, which works out to about $1.05 per litre, so rather than pay $141.9 in Osoyoos, yes, we filled up in Oroville. Yes, our dollar was about three cents below parity but that's not enough be a serious factor. At the time, we knew gas was even less down in Omak, about $1.01 per litre. We are all aware that due to the total taxes and levies, especially in Vancouver, gas does cost more up here but come on guys. You've got us well trained or
conditioned though April's $1.269 seems pretty good about now. Mike nicholls

Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts moves on up Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff
Change is in the air as the Vernon Public Art Gallery gets ready for its main fundraiser of the year. With an emphasis on introducing more Shakespearean elements to the art auction/ garden party that is Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts, the biggest change to the 27th annual event is its location. Taking place Wednesday, July 17, Midsummer’s has been moved from downtown Vernon’s Cenotaph Park, where it was held the last two years, to Turtle Mountain Winery. Owned by Sid and Min Sidhu, the winery above Bella Vista Road offers incredible views of Vernon and its surrounding areas, said VPAG executive director Dauna Kennedy Grant. “This is a more intimate setting,” she said. “We wanted to get back to the spirit of the event and put the emphasis of it being a fundraiser. We are excited to have it at such a nice location.” The Midsummer’s move is part of the gallery’s long-term vision of establishing a new location for its operations. “We are trying to progress and raise the visibility of the gallery by making changes in the community and targeting a new audience. It’s been nerve racking for us with lots of preparation going into it,” said Kennedy Grant, adding this year’s MEA committee chairperson Ruth Hoyte has been a big part of spearheading this year’s event. “Because the organization is evolving, we

The gallery is growing up and the event needs to grow up with it.” Organizers also want to gradually develop the event into a more Shakespearean-themed
affair, and this year have welcomed artist Tanya Lipscomb to create face and body paintings inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. “We want to pull in that element,” said Kennedy Grant. “It’s such a natural theme with the name of our event. We will put in
more next year and if people want to take the full theme and dress in character, then they are welcome to do so.” With change come the elements that work for Midsummer’s Eve, and the art is on the top of that list. Approximately 80 pieces of original and diverse artworks, from paintings, ceramics, prints, sculpture, photography, and drawings, have so far been donated to the auctions. The works have once again been juried to go to bid in the live auction, with this year’s juror being celebrated printmaker Briar Craig, a UBC Okanagan creative studies professor. “We want fair prices, so we have made changes that way. The emphasis is on this being a fundraiser, and it’s nice to get a bargain on art, but also to respect the artist for donating. The last few years we have seen great support from the artists. This couldn’t happen without them,” said Kennedy Grant, adding the VPAG is holding a separate reception for the artists, sponsors and donors to MEA Thursday at the gallery as a way to thank them personally. The live auction will once again be overseen by world champion auctioneers Don and Peter Raffan of Armstrong’s Valley Auction Ltd., who will also be accepting bids for gift certificates and packages for photo shoots, massages, mountain tours, hotel accommodations, a martini basket, and a dinner for six to the Grapevine Restaurant at Gray Monk Estate Winery in Lake Country. And don’t forget the garden party element.

Marking 20 years of Piping Hot Summer Drummer The bagpipes and drums are calling as world champion SFU Pipe Band returns to Vernon Morning Star Staff
Fresh on the heels of tallying a 19-year unbeaten North American streak with a win at the recent B.C. Highland Games, the Simon Fraser University (SFU) Pipe Band is set to celebrate another mark: two decades of summer instruction at Silver Star Mountain Resort. Taught by world-class members of the six-time world champion pipe band, more than 280 students are on the mountain now until July 21 to take part in the world’s biggest piping and drumming school, Piping Hot Summer Drummer. A highlight this year is the concert to be performed Sunday at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. The SFU Pipe Band will be accompanied by the entire Piping Hot Summer Drummer student body for a few tunes – a pipe band
of more than 200 players. Last year saw students travel from as far as New Zealand and Europe to participate in the school, while closer-to-home participants included those from Fort St. John, Nelson, Armstrong as well as Vernon. The instructors also come from varied backgrounds and include SFU Pipe Sgt. Jack Lee and his brother, Pipe Maj. Terry Lee, as well as their sons who are all elite players. The sessions are as much about building confidence as musical skills, said Jack Lee. “This has been a commitment of ours for two decades now, and it’s one of the more hands-on ways we engage with the community,” he said. “Not only do the students learn more about playing the instruments, they do so in an idyllic setting.” For the 20th anniversary, current world solo drumming champion Steven McWhirter and one of the world’s current top pipers, Stuart Liddell, will also serve as tutors along with SFU drum major Reid Maxwell. It was Maxwell who helped start the program in 1994 as a drumming-only school, pioneered by Vernon bagpiper Don Campbell,
who was seeking quality tutoring for his son Arran, a young up-andcoming drummer. Campbell approached Maxwell, who agreed to travel to Vernon to run a week-long class for local players. It was so successful, it has now grown to include drumming, bagpiping and highland dancing. In 2009, it expanded from one week to two due to popular demand. The instructional program precedes a rigorous final practice set as the SFU band prepares for the annual World Pipe Band Championships in Scotland in mid-August. The band, which has traditionally qualified directly into the final event by finishing each previous year in the top three, will have to qualify this year along with all the other bands as the event spreads into a two-day affair. The band has also performed at the Lincoln Centre for the Performing Arts in New York City and has toured all over the world, including the Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall and the Royal Glasgow Concert Hall. “They are excited to be returning to perform in Vernon again,
seumas anderson, six, of Portland, ore., practises on the chanter. anderson is the youngest of 280 bagpipe and drumming students participating in the Piping Hot summer Drummer school at silver star mountain resort this week and next. to say thanks to the community for all their support over the past 20 years,” said Rachel Parkinson, publicist with the school. Many students will also be travelling to the Kamloops Highland Games on Saturday to put the skills they’ve learned to the test in band
and solo competitions. The public is welcome to attend the SFU Pipe Band concert at the Performing Arts Centre, Sunday at 6 p.m. Tickets are $30.50, available at the Ticket Seller box office at the centre, or order at 250-549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

Thompson speaks at TEDx Kelowna Heidi Thompson shares her knowledge of breath awareness Morning Star Staff
Local artist, author and Toastmaster Heidi Thompson was one of nine speakers chosen to present their “unconventional solutions” at TEDxKelowna June 20. The event showcased both local and North American speakers who presented topics ranging from urban reforestation, removing labels in society, building schools and changing lives in Africa to a centering healing breath awareness exercise. TEDxKelowna was an inspirational day for the 100 community members in attendance. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, selforganized events are branded TEDx, where x equals an independently organized TED event. Thompson’s talk, “Breath
Awareness: An Unconventional Solution to Healing Society,” focused on society’s growing attention problem in both children and adults. She explained how weak attentions may be the root cause of stress, anxiety, ADHD, depression, and addictions. Her solution was to stop using drugs, and start adding attention developing curriculum in schools. “If we start in kindergarten by the time children graduate they would possess strong attention skills along with more self-awareness and self-control,” said Thompson. “Most important, they would have acquired a life-long tool for reducing stress, healing ADHD, and preventing depression. “There are many ways to train the brain and increase attention, but one of the most effective is an ancient technique called breath awareness, which requires one to pay attention to the touch of breath for a period of time without reacting or allowing the mind to be distracted.” Thompson has practised breath awareness for more than 30 years after learning it at a Vipassana meditation course. In the 1990s, she pioneered an attention developing program for children. She became one of the first to teach breath awareness in B.C. public schools and wrote Calm Focus Joy, a book

Local artist Heidi Thompson speaks at TEDx Kelowna recently. which teaches breath awareness to adults and children. Thompson joined Vernon’s Hi-Noon Toastmasters Club last year to improve her public speaking skills. She believes that without the valuable experience gained at Toastmasters, she would never have been prepared to speak at TEDx. Last year, TEDxKelowna sold out in less than two days, this year it sold out in just over two hours. Thompson said there is a huge demand for engaging and inspirational events such as TEDxKelowna. With the main TED conference moving to Vancouver in
2014 from its traditional conference location in Los Angeles, there is a great opportunity to showcase Kelowna and the Okanagan. This year the event was held at the Botegga Farmhouse Inn in Kelowna. The organizers are already working on plans for their 2014 event, which will feature triple the size allowance for attendees and will showcase both local and international perspectives.

Keep mosquitoes at bay
don’t mind the heat except that it keeps me from working in the garden after 10 a.m. until after supper and by then the mosquitoes are out and I am in. That makes for a short day. It is a good thing that we are early risers. There goes another day hoping for cooler and cloudier weather on the horizon. The other day I got an e-mail about mosquito repellent without having to Jocelyne sewell use chemical on your body. I am in the process of making it. As it takes four days before you use it, I cannot say if it works but here is the recipe if anyone wants to try it. Home made mosquito repellent (also for ants and fleas) 1/2 litre of alcohol 100 grams of whole cloves 100 ml of baby oil or similar (almond, sesame, chamomile, lavender, fennel, etc) Preparation: Leave cloves to marinate in alcohol four days. Stir every morning and eve-
A GArdener’s diAry
ning. After four days add the oil. It’s now ready to use. How to use: Gently rub a few drops into the skin of the arms and legs. Observe the mosquitoes fleeing the room. Repels fleas on pets too. Also included was a recipe to get rid of ants once and for all. This also I have not tried yet but am working on it. One cup sugar Three Tablespoons boric acid or Borax laundry soap Three cups of warm water Mix the sugar and boric acid together and slowly add the warm water, stirring all the time so the mixture will not get lumpy. Store it in a sealed jar and whenever you see ants simply take a used soda bottle or milk jug lid. Put a cotton ball in the lid and saturate the cotton ball with your sugar and boric acid mixture. It will not take much, just enough to fill the lid; if you spill any over the edge leave it, as this will only attract the ants even more. When you see the ants drinking the mixture, DO NOT kill them, let them drink and take the mixture back to the colony. This should kill the entire colony. In a day or two the entire colony should be gone. If you have small children or pets
make certain they cannot get to this mixture since boric acid is hazardous. They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too but I say you can have your weeds and eat them too. If you have never tried them in salad you should at least try purslane (Portulaca oleracea). It is a refreshing green with a slightly acidic and nutty taste and a crunchy texture and it may be cooked like spinach or raw in salad .100 gr of purslane contains 3.5 mg of iron, more than any other plant except parsley, and this is all the more remarkable because the plant is 92.5 per cent water. Mark your calendars. On July 20 and 21, BX Creek Daylilies will be holding their eighth annual open garden. Expect to see thousands of blooms on more than 900 registered daylilies, and just as many hybridized seedlings. The garden will be open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., try to go early to beat the heat. The garden is at 4617 Pleasant Valley Rd. Call Gail at 250-309-0528, if you would like to visit at any other time. The next column will be written by Gail Morgan of BX Creek Daylilies. She will tell you more about these beautiful plants that everyone should have in their gardens. For more information: 250-558-4556.
re you having company this week? Might I suggest a couple of healthy, filling salads that age well in the fridge, allowing you to make them one day and perhaps eat them up to three days later? The first is a couscous salad. Couscous is a tiny type of cracked, granular pasta that’s already been cooked and dried and is easier to use than other pastas. Soak it in boiling liquid and it’s good to go! I generally use chicken or veggie stock instead of water but today’s recipe calls for a flavoured box. The second recipe is a gluten-free vegetarian salad made with quinoa. While quinoa is usually considered to be a whole grain, it is actually a seed, but can be prepared like whole grains such as rice or barley. Quinoa is a gluten-free and cholesterol-

Ancient grains for today’s salads
kitchen wit & wisdom
free whole grain and has the highest protein content of all the grains, so it’s perfect for vegetarians and vegans. Cook quinoa as you would rice. Cover with water or vegetable broth and boil until soft, about 15 minutes. Or, place 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water in your rice cooker. Today’s recipe can be made with whatever vegetables you want. The dressing is versatile, and great on steamed vegetables. Using tahini gives it a creamy texture, without any dairy! If you’re not a vegetarian, adding chicken makes for a
special treat. CousCous salad 1 box flavoured couscous (garlic or Parmesan), cooked* 1 can chickpeas, drained 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped 1/2 small red onion, chopped 1 English cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped 1 tomato, chopped 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1/4 cup olive oil 2 to 3 limes, juiced In bowl, cover couscous with boiling water as directed on box; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork; cool to room temperature. In large bowl, toss all ingredients with the olive oil and lime juice, to taste. Note: if using plain
couscous add 1 cup with minced garlic and Parmesan to taste. the ultimate quinoa salad (A Mandy King recipe) 1 bell pepper (any colour) 1 pint cherry tomatoes 1 cucumber 1 avocado 4 green onions 1 can (10 or 14 oz.) black beans (rinsed well) 1 cup quinoa, uncooked Dressing: 2 cloves garlic, minced ½ cup parsley, chopped Juice of 1.5 lemons ½ cup water ½ cup tahini 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, minced 2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil (toasted brings out a better flavour) ⅛ cup tamari Cook quinoa according to package instructions. Cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, chop all
vegetables. Blend all dressing ingredients in food processor.
Mix cooked quinoa, chopped vegetables and beans. Pour dressing
over top of quinoa (you may not need all the dressing). Mix well.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might be able to put something you recently learned to good use. It could have to do with maintaining a relationship. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It might take a second or even a third effort to achieve an important career objective, but it will
be well worth it. Once you set your sights on your target, never veer from it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Your appreciation for everyone’s point of view places you in the role of peacemaker. You’ll have plenty of chances to use your gift. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Harmony in the work place will pay off for everyone involved. Once a positive example is set and the entire crew sees what comes of it, everyone will happily follow suit. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Being the smart person you are, you’ll know that the best way to silence a griper is to smother him or her with affection. It’s one of the most positive motivating tools you can use. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) The greater part of your efforts will be directed toward providing more for your family or co-workers. You’ll be a beacon of strength and compassion.

Polls open in North Westside
Morning Star Staff
Manager Craig Dickson and the staff of the downtown Safeway welcome their customers back to the new improved 30th Avenue and the reopened entrance to the grocery store Saturday.
North Westside Road residents will know later today who will represent them in Victoria. Polls for the Westside-Kelowna byelection run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at various locations in the constituency, including at the Killiney Beach Community Hall on Udell Road. Residents of Westside-Kelowna are eligible to vote if they are 18 years of age or older on July 10, they are a Canadian citizen and they have lived in B.C. for the past six months. Under the Election Act, voters must prove their identity and residential address in order to receive a ballot or register to vote. Identification can include a single document issued by the federal or provincial governments such as a B.C. driver’s licence, B.C. Identification Card or B.C. Services Card. You can also present two documents that together show the voter’s name and residential address. The candidates are Jag Bhandari (B.C. Vision), Christy Clark (Liberal), Carole Gordon (NDP), John Marks (independent), Silverado Socrates (independent), Sean Upshaw (Conservative), Dayleen Van Ryswyk (independent) and Korry Zepik (independent). The byelection became necessary after MLA Ben Stewart resigned recently to free up a seat for Clark, who lost her Vancouver seat in May’s provincial election but is premier.

water managers, for farmers, and for those concerned with fish,” said Anna Warwick Sears OBWB executive director. “This information has immediate value, and when we can track flows over time, we are better at predicting what the future will bring.” Recognizing the importance of this type of data collection, Environment Canada has awarded $30,000 to the OBWB to re-establish two strategic stream-flow hydrometric monitoring stations. “Right now, about half of the stream flow stations are being run by independent managers,” Warwick Sears said. “In this time of tight budgets, Warwick Sears we have to share data to get the most value out of our combined efforts.” Another $95,000 has been allocated by the Union of B.C. Municipalities’ Gas Tax Innovations Fund to develop a single database where stream-flow measurements from across the valley can be collected and accessed. Environment Canada also approved $35,000 to create phase one of an Okanagan wetlands strategy. The strategy includes compiling existing wetlands information, and establishing a steering committee to guide development of a valley-wide protection plan.

Arnold legacy earns honour Morning Star Staff
The Lake Country Museum and Archives recently honoured one of Lake Country’s pioneer families — the Arnolds. “The Arnolds are one of Lake Country’s earliest pioneer families and for more than 100 years have been instrumental in building our community,” said Duane Thomson, museum president. ‘The Lake Country Museum is delighted to recognize their contributions with a permanent plaque.” John Wesley Arnold was was born in Belleville, Ont. in 1871 and married Lucinda ‘Cindy’ Yott in New York, where they had met while working at a hospital. The young family moved west, farming in Saskatchewan before settling in Winfield. John arrived in 1910 or 1911 and obtained work building new irrigation flumes and he worked on building a house for his family during the evening. Cindy, with their two young sons, Nelson age seven and Arthur age three, arrived in 1913. The Arnolds worked hard, clearing their land along Okanagan Centre Road East and planting berries, melons, and mushrooms; later, these crops were replaced by orchards. Cindy opened one of Winfield’s early stores

Nelson founded Arnold & Sons Trucking, later G & N Arnold Ltd,. which operated in Lake Country for 57 years. Nelson married May and they had two sons, Gilbert and Don. Arthur and Ethel were childhood sweethearts and were married 71 years, until Ethel’s death in 2000. Art was a great baseball player, helping the Winfield team win three consecutive championships in 1925-27. A r t hu r and Ethel had five children: Shirley, Norm, Barbara, Frank, and Laurie.
Don Arnold grew up in Winfield, and in 1954, he joined the UBC rowing team. In 1955, he rowed for the UBC Eights crew, winning the Pacific Coast Championships. In 1956, Don rowed for one fours crew in the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, winning gold. His friend Wayne Pretty, also of Winfield, rowed for the second Canadian crew, which won silver. In 1960, Don’s crew won silver in the Rome Olympics. He has been inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame and the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame. Gilbert was born here in 1928 and he married Jane Weddell,
a teacher in Winfield, in 1950. Both were active in numerous community organizations throughout their lives, Gilbert was a member of the Winfield Fire Department, the Winfield Lion’s Club, the Winfield Memorial Hall Association and he assisted with the construction of Jack Seaton Park. Jane Arnold originally suggested Okanagan Centre school would make a good museum location. Visit the Lake Country Museum at 11255 Okanagan Centre Road West.

Funding boosts fruit variety research judie steeves Black Press
, 2013 w until July 20 location belo
To meet the changing needs of the marketplace and the challenges of new pests and diseases, the B.C. tree fruit industry has received $3.2 million in federal funding for research into new varieties of apples and cherries and handling and growing issues. PICO is wholly-owned by the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association and will administer the new funding. PICO president Keith Carlson noted that 80 per cent of the new cherry varieties being grown around the world now are varieties like staccato, sweetheart, lapin, sentennial and sovereign, that were developed here in the Okanagan. Some new varieties handled by PICO are privately-owned, like the ambrosia apple, which was discovered by the Mennell family in Cawston. “In the world sense, we’re (the industry) relatively small, so we have to move quickly. If we’re first with new varieties we get the benefits from them,” said Carlson.
The funds were announced by government house leader Peter Van Loan and Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan, who noted there have been many changes in the industry and in the world, and growers have to adapt to continue to be competitive. Van Loan agreed it’s important the industry innovate for long-term growth and profitability. Apples and cherries are responsible for more than 80 per cent of farm gate value in Canadian tree fruits. Projects to be funded include an ongoing apple and cherry new variety breeding program at the Pacific Agri-food Research Centre in Summerland as well as research into apple storage characteristics for new varieties, an evaluation of cherry handling techniques, work on replant issues, research into new pests and consumer research. The funding will carry on from Growing Forward funds which ran out at the end of March for some of this research, and will be used over the next five years.

A new pest has arrived in Lake Country, threatening the area’s apple orchards, and a spraying program to control a potential outbreak will have to wait until next year. District of Lake Country council heard from the B.C. Fruit Grower’s Association about apple growers facing the apple clearwing moth which could potentially kill trees. “The larvae can go under the bark of the tress and can kill it and reduce productivity,” said Glen Lucas, B.C. Fruit Grower’s Association general manager. “There is a pheromone out there that we can use (to control it). We had application to use it in Lake Country but were too late (to get approval).” The pest is just one of the issues facing the fruit growing industry in the area but the arrival of the new pest in Lake Country set off alarm bells around the table. Discussion centred around so called backyard trees, apple trees

Penny Gambell said it is vitally important that folks maintain the trees because if not they will have a negative effect on the entire industry. “It’s important for people to understand when they keep a tree in their backyard and if they aren’t vigilant and thinking about their neighbors they could be creating an infestation,” said Gambell, an apple orchardist. “If they are not doing a good job with their tree they are infesting everyone else.” Lucas agreed with Gambell and said most pests arrive and threaten orchards through residential areas.
He said they are trying to work with the Sterile Insect Release program to treat the apple clearwing moth. “We hope to expand the ability of SIR to control the pests and hopefully expand the program with funding from the provincial and federal governments.” Lucas said his group was working on a proposal to control the apple clearwing moth this year but failed to complete it by the deadline. He said they would like to be ready with a potential program to control the new bug and treat the entire regional district. “We are fairly optimistic about next year.”

United girls hoist B.C. Cup Vernon U13 and U15 squads finish fourth at provincial tourney
DJ looks to spin Dub win Morning Star Staff
Morning Star Staff
The Vernon United Under 14 girls are the best in B.C. They proved that by winning the Provincial B Cup Soccer Championships Sunday at Inter River Park in North Vancouver. United brushed back Langley FC 2-1 in the final, with Cayleigh Graham providing the winner. With Vernon up 2-0, Langley pulled within a goal, and nearly tied the game late if not for the heroics of Vernon keeper Marina Dempsey. “Marina made an incredible save in the dying seconds,” said Michelle Hughes, who coaches the team with husband John Hughes. “I could have kissed her. “It was another hard-fought game that was a total team effort. We are so lucky to have 15 MVPs.” Vernon went undefeated in the tournament, opening with a 7-0 win over Bulkley Valley from the North Coast. United then defeated Chilliwack 3-1 in what Hughes described as a “physical game, pretty intense.” Goals came from Ashley Glinsbockel, Abbey Hughes and Alex Drury, all off of set plays. United closed out round-robin play with a 2-1 win over North Vancouver. Among the off-field highlights for United was some retail therapy after the intense win over Chilliwack, as well as the Vancouver Whitecaps’ 2-0 MLS win over Seattle Sounders at a sold-out B.C. Place Saturday night. Other members of the B.C. champion crew include April Fletcher, Millie Harron, Nina Ogasawara, Emily Clarke, Madison FindleyProctor, McKenna McWillis, Maddie Catt, McKenna Southam, Sheyan Camalush, Jaime Grages, Emma Nesbitt and Ailish Curran. Both the United U15 and U13 squads bowed in the bronze-medal game in their respective divisions. The U15 side fell in penalty shots to Tsawwassen after finishing regulation in a scoreless draw. Overtime solved nothing as neither team gave an inch. In the shootout, Vernon keeper Jordynne Tomiak was cool as a cucumber in making some huge saves, but after five shooters, Tsawwassen edged United by one goal. Both teams came out super focused, resulting in

Tigers sweep Rocks to reach final Morning Star Staff
If it’s Kelowna, it means a shorter commute. If it’s Kamloops, they get home-floor advantage. Either way, the Vernon Source For Sports Tigers have a lot to look forward to as they await their opponent in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League final. The No. 2-seeded Tigers earned their way to the best-of-five
championship series after sweeping the undermanned Armstrong Shamrocks in their semifinal set, capped by an 18-5 win in Game 3 Saturday night at Kal Tire Place. Vernon will play the winner of the Kelowna Raiders-Kamloops Venom semi. The host Venom evened the series at 1-1 with a 9-5 win in Game 2 Saturday at Memorial Arena. Game 3 went Tuesday night

in Kelowna, with Game 4 set for tonight in Kamloops. Vernon assistant coach Keith Hanna said all facets of the Tigers’ game were running silky smooth Saturday night – faceoffs, loose ball, goaltending, transition and offence. “It was a nice win,” said Hanna. “The boys came out determined and very focused. It was a complete game for our guys. They just came out and took over.” Ryan Sarazin, who sat out Game 2 with an injury, returned to score five goals and three assists. Mitchell Anderson, with a hat trick, Nolan Frame, with 2+3, and singles by Daryl Landels (4A), Jordan Orr (4A), Craig Bigsby, Mason Limb, Quinton Harrish, Theo Wagner, Austin Lewarne and Brett Hanna accounted for the remaining offence. “We pushed that Armstrong team hard. They ran with a bit of a short bench and we just kept at ‘em. It was a commendable effort (by Armstrong),” said Keith Hanna. Starting with 13 runners, and already fatigued from losing a 7-5 heartbreaker the night before, the Shamrocks suffered a huge setback with the loss of captain Nathan Marcetta to a separated shoulder in the first five minutes of Game 3. Conor Payne dialed up three goals and an assist to lead the Shamrock offence. Sam Hanley and Stephen Ringdal also scored, while netminder Cole McFarlane chipped in with two helpers

in addition to 25 saves. Joel Fruncillo had 22 stops for the win. “The guys worked as hard as they could, but they were just outgunned,” said Armstrong head coach Bryan Cope, who was disappointed in the level of commitment of some of his players towards the end of the season. “A month ago, we were looking pretty good.” But with only a handful of players graduating, and with returnees now comfortable in their new roles, Cope is looking forward to next year. “Seeing over half the guys never went over centre last year, the development was good,” he said. “Most of my guys are young. They’ve got time to learn. It’s nice to see them learning the offence.” Cope also credited Vernon for not running up the score any worse than it was.

Meanwhile, Shamrock grad Brett Hawrys collected four goals and an assist as the Nanaimo Timbermen fell 15-6 to the Langley Thunder to wrap up their Junior A regular season Sunday at the Langley Events Centre.

Family ties at Motoplex Continued from A21
Among the starting field of 24 cars will be several Motoplex veterans with family ties. Brothers Jason and Jim White of Sun Peaks will share the track for the first time this season, and for competing teams. Jason’s No. 21 Bowers & Wilkins Dodge is prepared by DJK Racing while Jim’s Dodge will come out of the 22 Racing stable. Father-son tandem of Trevor and Ryley Seibert from Williams Lake will also be in action. Ryley, 21, racing in his No. 09 Lake Excavating/Marshall’s Dodge, is a series rookie of the year contender.
He is the top-finishing rookie in three of the four events this season. “I race for the enjoyment of it at this point,” said the elder Seibert. “And to gauge where Ryley is in his development. It’s not necessarily about beating me, but more to see how he reacts to things and matures as a racer.” Practice sessions go from 1-2:30 p.m. with qualifying starting at 5:15 p.m. There will be an on-track autograph session at 7:00 before racing gets underway at 8:15. The event will be aired on TSN, Sun., July 28, 8 a.m. PT.
The Vernon Liquor Store Stars were left frustrated Monday night at Marshall Field #2, falling 3-2 to Penticton after dominating much of the play in their Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League tilt. The 4-6-1 liquor men opened the scoring when Rick Danyluk hustled down the left wing and had his cross bounce in off the nose of John Burns. Penticton scored two quick ones before halftime despite several sharp saves by Ted Lurkins. The visitors added insurance before Danyluk pounced on a through ball to bring the Stars within one. The liquor men kept pressing and thought they had tied the game late, only to have the goal called back on an offside. Penticton improved to 8-3. Lake Country FC overcame an early deficit to brush back the Rented Mules 3-1 at Parkinson Rec Fields in Kelowna. The Mules, who dipped to 2-9, went up on a first-half goal by Harry de Haas, but in second half, Lake Country (8-3) responded with snipes from Neil MacNeil, Chris Purnell and Bruce McAuliffe. In other 45+ Monday at Parkinson, Bosman Accounting fell 2-0 to Brandt’s Creek. Henk Bosman shot high or wide on three glorious chances and Jenne Huberts drilled one just over net from 12 yards. Defender Greg Thalheimer and midfielder Tom Ouchi had bold showings for the 0-11 accountants. Brandt’s, now 2-7-1, opened their account when Franklin Jeri-Leon was fouled at the top of the Bosman box, resulting in Kelvin Brown
arrowing a free kick over the wall and beyond the keeper. The pub crew took a firm grip on the game in the second half, but didn’t score until 10 minutes before the final whistle. Brandt’s finished the game with nine players following two red cards in the final 10 minutes, along with six yellows. Big O Tire/Turn-Key Ogopogos took to the rain-slicked Mission Fields in Kelowna to upend the host Cantina’s 2-1. With the sun breaking out following the pregame downpour, players and keepers struggled to see the ball. Big O wisely kept the ball on the ground, using controlled passing to maintain possession throughout the game. The first goal was a beauty by a wide open Rueben Cerventez, who converted a passing sequence between Mark Wasylyk and Brad Conlin midway through the first half. Cantina’s (3-7-1) tied the game after the break on a nice shift move around an Ogopogo defender for a clear shot on a helpless Jorgen Kongsdorf. The Ogopogos (5-6) strung together a sixplayer passing series, capped by a Wasylyk shot, low to the corner for the winner. After the game, a Cantina player asked an Ogopogo player how they managed to assemble so many players for an out-of-town game. The reply, with a chuckle, was that the field was a dream to play on. The showdown between the league’s top two teams failed to live up to the hype as top-seeded Brown Benefits manhandled the shorthanded Leko Precast Camels 7-1 at Marshall #1.

over Freeport Industries at Marshall #3. The first goal came early in the second half when Rodney Goodchild put a corner on the head of a charging Kriss Yargeau, who finished with a war cry. A few minutes later, Ryan Sharp found Jason Beck streaking down the sideline with a clear lane. Beck relayed the feed to Tim McGowan, who finished with a well-placed header. McGowan capped the scoring on a scramble by six-yard box. In men’s 50+ league play, Vernon Kal Tire bowed 4-1 to the Kelowna Kickers at Quarry Park. Trailing 4-0 early in the second half, Vernon finally got on board with a goal from Dennis Chabot.

BUSINESS NEWS Moderately Confused
Bridge by Phillip Alder IF A CARD IS USELESS, MAYBE SACRIFICE IT Garry Kasparov, many people’s choice as the best chess player ever, said, “Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem-solve in an uncertain environment.” Bridge players can relate to that. Interestingly, though, the environment is less certain in bridge, where there are unseen cards, than in chess, where the position of every piece is known. Some chess games feature a sacrifice, purposely losing a piece. This is much less common in bridge, but can be required -- as in this deal. South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade queen.
What is South’s best line of play, and how can East foil that plan? South, with seven top tricks (two spades, two hearts and three diamonds), must establish two club tricks to get home. The best way to do that is low to dummy’s king on the first round. But even if South can succeed, he will lose the lead twice. There is a risk that the defenders will establish and run West’s spade suit. In this situation, with two key-cards to dislodge, declarer usually should duck the first trick. After taking the second spade in his hand, South plays a club to dummy’s king. Now is the key moment. East must realize that if declarer has the club ace, his queen is
worthless. He must sacrifice his queen under dummy’s king. Here, this gives West two club entries, one to establish his spades and one to cash the winners. Note that if East retains his club queen, he wins the second club and does not have a spade to lead. Then the contract makes.

Robert F. BreƩ, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and ĮreĮghter passed away on the morning of Saturday, July 6th surrounded by those he loved. Bob lost a valiant baƩle with a lung disease but never lost his humility, wry wit, and ability to charm. As a testament to Bob͛s character, his nurse embraced his family and through tears said͖ ͞He was a lovely man and he reminded me of my father͟.
A full obituary will be published in this newspaper on Friday, July 12th giving funeral details.
Bob was born in Bonnyville, AB on Jan 13, 1948 to Herman and Peggy BreƩ. /n 1969, he met the love of his life, Violet Mackiewich, who found in him a kindred spirit and passionate partner for adventure and arguments of no relevance. Bob and Vi were married the next year. /n 1972, Bob found the next passion in his life and became a ĮreĮghter in St. Albert, AB. /n 1974, he ũoined the Vernon Fire Department, Local 1517, in order to bring his sweetheart back to her hometown. Shortly aŌer moving to Vernon, Bob and Vi welcomed their Įrst born, Robin, who Bob would oŌen boast as fearing nothing with an appeƟte to match. /n 1977, they welcomed their second child, Kelly, who Bob described as the precocious life of the party who stole his heart immediately. Bob invested everything he had to give into his family and, thus, provided the model of how to truly be a husband and father. Bob͛s devoƟon to his family was evident in the fact that he did not miss a single sporƟng event, awards banƋuet, anniversary, graduaƟon, broken heart, or scraped elbow. Bob invested eƋually in his brothers and sisters at the Vernon Fire Department and FireĮghters AssociaƟon. He was elected President of the Vernon FireĮghters AssociaƟon (25 years), President of the BC FireĮghters AssociaƟon (10 years), and President of the BC Professional FireĮghters Burn Fund. Bob suīered no fools and demanded excellence from those who worked for him and with him. He fought Ɵrelessly for the rights of the men and women he represented and speciĮcally for their health beneĮts as it related to various cancers. As a direct result of his Įght, Bob͛s membership won coverage for those life-threatening diseases. Even for his work family, he showed an unceasing desire to invest in their well-being. This past June, Bob was awarded the presƟgious Yueens Diamond Jubilee Medal for his service in the BC FireĮghters AssociaƟon. Bob lived to see both children marry: Robin to Brandice and Kelly to Paul. Through them, Bob and Vi welcomed their grandchildren, Liviah, Rowan, and Cohen whom they fell instantly in love with. Bob͛s heart for his grandchildren knew no bounds and, as he did with his children, he invested his Ɵme and became the obsession of each child. Despite their young age, he will forever be imprinted on their hearts. Bob is also survived by his brother Barry (Darlene) BreƩ of Sherwood Park, his sister Bev (Roy) Allison of Edmonton and his many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews of BC and Alberta. There is not a family memory for those leŌ that does not have Bob in it. This family has lost its patriarch whose love, strength, and knowledge of all things duct tape truly kept it together. Bob͛s caring nature extended beyond his family and he held dear all of his friends both in and out of the Įre service. Bob remains a steadfast reminder that where you invest your Ɵme you truly invest your heart. Funeral to be held on Monday, July 15th, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at the Trinity United Church, 3300 Alexis Park Drive. /n lieu of Ňowers, donaƟons can be made to the BC Professional FireĮghters Burn Fund. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
