Ellison wildfire mopped up City looks to

avoid hazard

Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

Campers and beachgoers are now settled back in, as crews keep their eyes on Ellison Provincial Park after a wildfire was sparked Sunday. The two-hectare blaze broke out Sunday at approximately 4 p.m., causing evacuation of the park and campground, an alert for Outback residents and a temporary road closure. “We were evacuated from the beach at Ellison park,” said Suzanne Beugeling, a Morning Star advertising consultant. “The fire looked pretty bad when we drove by.” But with the co-ordinated effort of several agencies, the fire was brought under control and the park was opened back up to the public by 10 p.m. Sunday. “We caught it at two (hectares) and that’s a success,” said Steve Olson, incident commander with the Vernon Fire Zone. “The cause is under investigation at this time. It is human caused we believe though.” With minimal precipitation in the forecast, all park users and campers are urged to be diligent with campfires and any other activities that could cause a fire. “It is going to be hot and dryer in the next week and a bit and in that fires could get a little bit larger,” said Olson. So far this season, there have been 99 fires (burning 1,660 hectares) in the Kamloops fire centre, and 82 per cent of those have been person caused. “According to our 10-year averages we are still below average but we are in the beginning of the fire season heading into the rest of the summer,” said Melissa Welsh, fire information officer with the Kamloops Fire Centre. The current fire danger rating is moderate to high with some extreme areas in Merritt and Osoyoos. For a video of the damage caused by the fire visit www.vernonmorningstar.com

An accident that devastated a Quebec town has a Vernon official wanting to avoid a disaster here. Coun. Bob Spiers asked city staff Monday to consider a specific route for trucks hauling potentially dangerous substances and for signage to be installed. “There is no hazardous material route so trucks don’t know where to go,” he said. Bob Spiers “I’ve heard from people who say hazardous material trucks have wound up in neighbourhoods.” It’s believed about 50 people were killed when a train carrying oil crashed in Lac-Megantic, Que. Presently, there are designated routes for all truck transport in Vernon but nothing specifically for vehicles with hazardous materials. “My idea is it should only be the highway,” said Spiers. However, challenges could come from only permitting hazardous material haulers on 32nd or 27th streets, which have heavy traffic volumes. “Population density is a challenge,” said Rob Dickinson, the city’s engineering manager, adding that both streets go right through the heart of Vernon. “You have to look at what is the quickest way to get them through town.” Movement of hazardous materials will be considered as part of a review of the city’s transportation plan.

Mews unveiled in Lumby richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Aggie Von Vegasack put a personal touch on the official opening of Lumby’s Monashee Mews Tuesday. As festivities were wrapping up for the 46-bed residential care facility on Norris Avenue, Von Vegasack pulled out a head of garlic and asked that it be planted next to a ceremonial tree. “If we plant garlic in the garden, we will have health forever,” she told the dignitaries and fellow residents. “If doctors knew that, they would have time to go fishing.” Monashee Mews provides care for physically frail seniors and those with dementia, while there is also a dedicated 10-bed unit for adults with acquired brain injuries. “This is a flagship for us,” said Robin Oldring, chairperson of inSite Housing, Hospitality and Health Services, which owns the facility. “We are so incredibly fortunate with the quality of staff and their commitment to the residents and to the community.”

Monashee Mews will employ 50 people full and part-time. “Eighty per cent of the employment is local which is huge for us,” said Kevin Acton, Lumby’s mayor. “There is less travel time (to Vernon) so there’s more time with their families and less money spent on fuel. It will keep people shopping closer to home.” Lumby has been pushing for residential care for seniors for many years. “I couldn’t believe someone had to leave their home and move to Vernon to be cared for,” said Acton. “Thank you for constructing a building for the people who mean the most to us, our parents and grandparents.” But while he is pleased with Monashee Mews, Acton is lobbying inSite to expand the facility to include assisted living services. “It will keep people home with their families,” he said. The 46 beds are all funded by the Interior Health Authority.

Dumpster fires raise alarm richard rolke

Many homes built between the late 70s and the early 90s experience sealed unit failure. Unit failure leads to condensation forming between the two layers of glass causing them to steam and fog up.

Is There a Solution?

Yes, the only real solution is to replace the sealed unit. You only need to replace the glass not the frame which means it can be done easily with a minimum amount of disruption.

B.C. Fresh Salmon Prized BC wild sockeye salmon is plentiful and now is the best time to buy, when it is at it’s freshest. The pristine depths of the North Pacific and the cold water produce great tasting and healthy Omega3-laden fish. How do you know when your salmon is fresh? Push your finger into the flesh - if it springs back relatively quicky, then you have a fresh wild salmon. At Askew’s, we source only the freshest ocean-caught sockeye. Sockeye is one of the firmest salmon, and can often be overcooked. It is best when cooked simply, barbecued or over an open fire, either left whole, fileted, or cut into steaks.

A fire bug may be making the rounds in Vernon. Firefighters were called out to four separate incidents involving dumpsters behind buildings Friday and Saturday. “We’re very concerned we could lose a life,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. Incidents occurred Friday night in recycling bins in the 2800 block of 45th Avenue and the 4700 block of 27th Street. On Saturday, wooden pallets next to a dumpster were set ablaze in the 4400 block of 27th Street while there was a dumpster fire at 29th Street and 45th Avenue. “We are lucky the danger was confined to a small area or stayed in the dumpster,” said Molendyk, adding that there was the potential for the fires to spread, particularly because of potential accelerants inside the bins. “There’s dry, hot weather and it wouldn’t take much for them to go.” Molendyk isn’t sure if the four incidents are linked. “It could be one or two people, we don’t know,” he said.

Kal Beach is a popular park, but steps are just being taken now to ensure it stays that way. Vernon council decided Monday to apply to Coldstream to have Kal Beach rezoned to parks and open space. “We’re not making any more beaches. I’m passionate that this stay in the public domain,” said Coun. Juliette Cunningham. While Kal Beach is in Coldstream, it is owned by the city and is currently zoned rural two, which could have allowed for development.

Steps are being taken to ensure Kal Beach, which includes the popular Rotary dock, is free from future development. Okanagan have pushed for parks zoning, previous Vernon councils have refused. “I can only speculate that people wanted to put a dollar value on it,” she said.

“You can put a dollar figure on it but I wanted to limit the possibility of a future council developing it.” Coun. Bob Spiers supports Kal Beach being a park but he

opposed the city initiating the rezoning process. “Coldstream can do it. It will cost us money and staff time for the application,” he said. The city will eventually transfer ownership of Kal Beach to the Regional District of North Okanagan as part of Greater Vernon’s parks restructuring. Mayor Rob Sawatzky says there is a need to ensure Kal Beach’s future for future generations instead of waiting for property title to change hands. “We can sit and wait for it to happen or we can make it happen,” he said. In terms of Spiers’ concerns about rezoning application fees, Sawatzky says, “the costs are quite minor.”

Cliff diving ends in injury richard rolke Morning Star Staff

A teen has been injured while participating in a high-risk activity. Paramedics and Vernon Search and Rescue were called to Rattlesnake Point in Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park Sunday afternoon after receiving

reports of a girl being hurt while cliff diving. “I’m not sure if she hit some rocks or landed flat on the water but there could be significant back injuries,” said Leigh Pearson, with Vernon Search and Rescue. Paramedics walked into the area and Search and Rescue transported the girl by boat to an ambulance. “It saves 40 minutes of carrying time. It (packed out on a stretcher) is hard on the patient,” said Pearson. Rattlesnake Point is a popular spot for youth to cliff dive during the summer, but they are being warned that there is considerable risk involved to the activity. “We’ve taken four or five people out of there and they haven’t survived. It’s a really sad situation,” said Pearson.

Record check aid offered

The City of Vernon will begin construction of the infrastructure in the following areas: • Intersection of 33rd Street and 32 Avenue and • 33rd Street from 32 Avenue to 35 Avenue

The project is expected to start the week of July 15th, 2013 and will involve the reconstruction of: • sanitary main and service connections, • storm sewer and services, • combination of full and partial depth reconstruction of the roadway surface

Some Vernon residents won’t get hit in the wallet because they want to help in the community. City council has agreed to discount the $25 fee for criminal record checks by 75 per cent for people who are financially disadvantaged but want to volunteer with a school or another non-profit activity. “There’s not a big problem for a lot of volunteers but for volunteers with financial challenges, they do have a problem,” said Coun. Catherine Lord. “I don’t want to make it onerous for them to volunteer.” The criminal record check program will be similar to the discount the financially disadvantaged can receive for recreation fees. While council has approved the discount for criminal record checks, staff must work out the details, such as who will qualify.

Construction will result in a road closure of 33rd Street, from 32nd Ave to 35th Ave, with detours in effect for the duration of the project. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the construction zone and businesses are open and appreciate continued support. For further details of the project please contact Mark Dowhaniuk, City of Vernon Infrastructure Engineer at 250550-3634 or visit the City of Vernon website www.vernon.ca/ index.php/projects/33-street-from-32-ave-to-35-ave

Sensible B.C. director Dana Larsen was in Vernon Monday to promote the marijuana referendum campaign. Elections B.C. has given approval in principle for a petition drive for a proposed law which would effectively decriminalize marijuana possession in the province. “We’ve already started registering canvassers,” said Larsen. “We’ll need a few thousand volunteer canvassers to collect the roughly 400,000 signatures required.” Sensible B.C. now has 60 days before the 90-day signature-gathering period begins Sept. 9. If the campaign can collect signatures from 10 per cent of the registered voters in each electoral district, the Sensible Policing Act will be put to a referendum in 2014. “Our polling shows over 70 per cent support in B.C. for the provisions of the Sensible Policing Act.” said Larsen. “The question for us is, are there enough British Columbians who feel passionately about this issue for us to get the many canvassers and volunteers we need?” Visit sensiblebc.ca for more.

A Vernon senior has been reunited with his set of wheels. An 83-year-old man was in Polson Park Sunday collecting rocks when he walked away from his electric scooter with the key in the ignition. When he turned around, the vehicle was gone. A visiting Calgary resident called the police about the theft and the search for the $5,000 vehicle began. “It was located by some apartments,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. “Officers picked up the elderly gentleman and his scooter and took him home. We are thankful we got the man’s scooter back.” The key was missing so the man will likely have to get a new key to start the ignition. Molendyk believes this incident should send a

“We are thankful we got the man’s scooter back.” message to anyone who operates a scooter. “Take the key with you and secure them (scooter) the best you can,” he said. “There are individuals who will deprive people of their belongings.”

An RCMP officer was kept busy with a prolific offender July 12. An officer pulled over a Plymouth car at 35th Street and 27th Avenue at about 1:40 p.m. “He saw how the vehicle was driving and did a license check,” said Gord Molendyk, Vernon RCMP spokesperson. It was determined that the 60-year-old Vernon man behind the wheel had no license and is the subject of a five-year Canada-wide ban on driving until August 2015. He has 13 previous impaired convictions since 1979 and seven stays of proceedings for drivingrelated incidents. He also has three previous convictions for driving while prohibited. The vehicle was impounded for seven days and the man will appear in court July 25.

Resurrect the deal

t’s obvious there has been a break down in communications. The Vernon and District Association for Community Living admits surprise over the Vernon School District reversing thrusters and not selling the Dorothy Alexander Centre (DAC). And yet, the district insists it has been clear over the last couple of years that the space is unavailable. Both sides are standing their ground but who is right is actually irrelevant. What is important to consider is that VDACL has leased the DAC since 1961 when it was known as My School. It has played a critical role in the lives of the developmentally disabled, providing them with educational, social and career opportunities. “A lot of the clients remember going to school there,” said Eileen Howells, executive director. When West Vernon Richard Rolke Elementary was closed, VDACL took steps to purchase the adjacent 8,500-square-foot DAC so property title actually reflected the reality that the facility has always been a critical part of the organization’s goal of integrating special needs individuals into the community. Negotiations went back and forth but in 2009, both sides reached an agreement to sell, and in 2010, the Ministry of Education provided its blessing after intense lobbying, particularly from MLA Eric Foster. Somehow between then and now, the wheels fell off the bus and the land wasn’t sold. What’s particularly ironic is that word about the situation came out last week just as the community was mourning Klaus Linemayr, a tireless advocate for the developmentally disabled who fought the charge to purchase the DAC. During a 2010 press conference announcing the Ministry of Education had approved the land deal, Linemayr was bursting with pride.

“As our (clients’) population is aging, there is a need for different programs,” he said. The goal was to relocate some programs from the Venture Training site to the DAC. There was also the possibility of new skills programs like a coffee shop and art studio. Sports and theatre activities could have been expanded in the gym. “It made sense because of the programs we have in close vicinity there,” said Howells. VDACL is now scrambling to find new facilities for existing programs, let alone new ones, and that will be a challenge given the financial constraints of non-profits and what may actually be available right in town. Of course the school district is also facing a challenge as it needs room for its alternate learning program, which assists teens and adults complete their education. Constructing a new facility or leasing private space doesn’t make sense given the school district’s ongoing money woes, so it has been decided that DAC is the only viable solution for the program. But given that overall student enrolment is declining and the district is looking at restructuring secondary schools, could the alternate learning program not be moved into available spaces at a school? Would that not rationalize limited resources instead of duplicating everything — custodial, secretarial, supplies — at separate facilities? As was mentioned before, there has been a break down in communications and who is to blame doesn’t matter. What is important, though, is finding a solution that meets the long-term needs of both the school district and the VDACL. They need to sit down and negotiate and if a facilitator would prove beneficial to the process, perhaps MLA Foster can be asked to get involved once again. This shouldn’t be an us or them conflict. Both VDACL and the school district are trying to meet the needs of the community and that should be celebrated. Co-operating to achieve those goals makes the most sense.

We were heartened recently upon hearing Canadian veterans of the Korean War were finally to be recognized with their own day of remembrance. The Year of the Korean War Veteran was proclaimed by the federal government in January to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the armistice signed in 1953. But the enactment of a special day, July 27, to be marked in perpetuity to honour the sacrifices and efforts of Canadian soldiers, sailors and air force personnel, has more long-term significance. In all, 516 Canadians died and another 1,558 were wounded in the three-year conflict, a battle between the Soviet and Chinasupported north, and the south Koreans, supported by the United Nations, some of the member countries of which waged war against the Nazis just a handful of years previous. Media of the day largely ignored the conflict, to the point where many Canadians didn’t realize their country was playing a role in the war-torn region. Luckily, things have changed in 50 years, including the treatment of veterans and the value we place on their role in maintaining peace and reducing chaos in the world. Most wars in which Canada has been involved have aimed to achieve a political end for the greater good. The people on the front lines working to accomplish that aim – some of whom paid the ultimate price – deserve to be recognized for their efforts, which in the vast majority of cases are honest, true and patriotic. Regardless how one feels about war, the Canadians who have fought them have, at the end of the day, worked to protect the rights and freedoms we should never take for granted. For that, they deserve our thanks. — Victoria News

Lake safety is critical

onsider the following hypothetical, but very possible tragedy. We saw the submerged buoy at the last second but it was too late to avoid catastrophe. It ripped into the tube pulling our kids and as it did so, caught the arm of my daughter, fracturing it in two places. We were emotionally paralyzed. We pulled it back together, made sure the rest of the kids were OK and then took our injured daughter to the hospital. The good news is she’s healing well. After returning to the accident site, we determined that the buoy was one of four placed in the area by commercial boat operators. The one we hit was barely showing above the water, and like an iceberg, the vast majority of its mass of welded together discarded propane tanks was lurking below the surface. The others had more showing, but again were difficult to see, as they had no florescent or reflective markings what so ever.

call The spca Thank you for your recent reminder to readers about the dangers of leaving their pets in the car on hot days. Each year, the B.C. SPCA receives thousands of calls across the province to rescue animals who are suffering extreme heatstroke in parked cars. Tragically, animals left in hot cars can die in less than 10 minutes, even with windows left partially open. If you do see a dog suffering in a hot car, please call the SPCA emergency number immediately at 250-938-5406 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., seven days a week). Outside of SPCA hours, please contact the RCMP for assistance. If you are in a shopping area, please also ask store managers if they will page the owner of the vehicle. Remember, never take your pets on errands in hot weather. Ten minutes can lead to tragedy for an animal trapped in a hot car. corinne Ross, Vernon spca manager

How could one be so careless with no regard for the safety of others, especially individuals who spend their professional life on the water? Our neighbours shared with us numerous other near miss incidents.

FunTasTic celebRaTion Another Funtastic Summer Festival has come and gone. Many more good memories now added to the list. It is like a Western Canada reunion or Funtastic family gettogether; so many people from so many communities. The Funtastic Sports Society wants to express appreciation to the greater Vernon community for its outstanding support of the 29th annual Funtastic slo-pitch tournament and music festival. During the 2013 Canada Day long weekend, we celebrated much more than a successful 29th Funtastic Festival. We celebrated the early morning and late nights of our 500 volunteers, the generosity of more than 100 local sponsors and partner agencies and the enthusiasm of our visitors. We honoured the dedication of ball players that brave the rain and blazing heat. The pride of a winning team and dignity of a losing one.

We weren’t going to let this nightmare scenario happen. We headed to Fisher’s Hardware and picked up some marking buoy’s to attach to the floating lethal weapons. Kelly Fisher was only too happy to give us a break on the purchase. Just after

We celebrated the amazement in visitors experiencing Funtastic for their first time. And the timeless bond between long-time friends in friendly competition. We played, dressed in zany costumes, dined on fine ball park cuisine, cheered and danced. And we did it for a community that loves to come together. We realized the free spirit, the unabashed spirit, within all of us. And we played on ball diamonds built on the vision and passion of the great early Funtastic personalities. We cheered, almost 6,000 strong, when the decorated soldiers, led by Lt.-Col. L. Johnson, took to the stage on Sunday night as a Julian Austin performed Red and White. And we joined in a salute to our Canadian military troops and their families. In our 29th year, we celebrated the future of a community; we celebrated our potential, knowing together we can build a better

we attached them, and had come back to shore, an RCMP boat came by seemingly to check them, but our reflective buoys had already been attached. They might have been responding to other complaints. The RCMP incorrectly might have assumed the fisherman added the reflective buoys We had the same issue last year with the fisherman, a number of us filing complaints with the Coast Guard, obviously with little lasting affect. As residents in the community and benefactors of commercial fishing on our lake, we insist they follow good safety practices. We also challenge the authorities to properly enforce the law. Again the good news is that the event described above luckily never happened, but there were a number of close calls by numerous boaters, which, could have ended in significant injury or death.

community through sport. It would not be possible to organize Funtastic without the support of so many in the community. Thank you all and see you for the 30th Funtastic June 27 to June 30, 2014. Jim Mcewan, executive director Funtastic sports society downTown is gReaT We recently returned to Vernon to attend my 40th Vernon Secondary School reunion. While here, we spent some time shopping on main street, and we wanted to say what a great job the city has done with revitalizing the main street area. We loved the antique shops and bought items at several of the interesting stores we browsed through. There were numerous places we could have stopped to eat if we hadn't already had a big breakfast at our hotel. Next time we are in Vernon, I know we will be taking the time to

shop here again. lynne humphry-baker

DVA hosts block party Morning Star Staff

Downtown Vernon is throwing a block party to celebrate the completion of the revitalization project. Mayor Rob Sawatzky and MLA Eric Foster will join the merchants at noon Friday to celebrate the revitalization with a ribbon cutting ceremony, cake and speeches. This will take place at the west end of the Nature’s Fare parking lot by the new Christmas tree. “The revitalization for 30th Avenue is finished and looks spectacular, the merchants are happy to see the blocks are open and the contractors have done a wonderful job with the new sidewalks and landscaping,” said Nadine Wilson, Downtown Vernon Association president. “The businesses I’ve spoken to are really looking forward to the Block Party, and are busy planning some fun activities for Friday’s celebration,” said Julie Melanson, communications and promotions assistant, adding that the DVA invites everyone to come down on Friday and enjoy the celebration. “It will be an exciting event,” said Lara Konkin, events and marketing coordinator. “We will be having street performers playing music, a bouncy house set up for the kids, along with clowns and magicians to entertain.” The Block Party celebrations will take place on the 3300-3400 block starting at noon and carry on until 8 p.m. The rest of 30th Ave will be joining the party at 5:30 p.m. with Curbside Live – the street performer program that takes place on Friday nights.

Grindrod festival focuses attention on new hall Morning Star Staff

Grindrod is the place to be Saturday as the agricultural community just north of Enderby gets ready to stage its fourth annual Musik and Arts Festival. The festival started four years ago by Phil Wesle, of the band Clayvious, who wanted to have a Woodstock-type of gathering on his family’s organic farm, Green Croft Gardens. The festival has since grown, and now takes place at Grindrod Park. This year, the festival is shining the spotlight on the village’s brand new community hall, which was recently completed. “It is a beautiful structure and was built with the community in mind, boasting an outdoor stage right on the structure itself for putting on many events,” said Rory White, one of the festival organizers. “It is sure to be appreciated for decades to come.” The festival starts with Grindrod Parks and Recreation Association holding a pancake breakfast starting at 9 a.m. Music will be held all day from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m.

Grindrod Musik and Arts Festival is being held all day Saturday outside the recently completed community hall at Grindrod Park. Performers include mostly Okanagan and Shuswap area artists, including Bocephus King, The Original Shakedown,

Adrenaline Rush, Rusty Muskets, Million Dollars in Pennies, One Camel Short, Incanto, Dust Puppets, Elk Tribe, Pauline Kyllonen, Angelica and Camryn, and Carolyn and Friends. “Mainstage acts will perform a 45-minute set every hour, and open mic performances will take place in between every set,” said White, adding there will be both a main stage and open mic stage at the site. There is also a drum circle planned for around 3 p.m. for everyone to take part in, said White. Food vendors will be selling local edibles, while miscellaneous vendors will sell everything from locally-made art to hula hoops. “There will also be a kids area consisting of a small petting zoo, face painting, kids activities/games and as well a playground,” said White. “There is also an art exhibit consisting of local art and photography and a community art wall for all interested to add their mark to.” Admission for the Musik and Arts Festival is $5 per person or $20 per family, at the gate. The park is located off Highway 97A beside the Grindrod bridge.

Time to check your inhibitions at the door for the fifth annual Armstrong Metalfest this weekend. The established festival is once again happening at Armstrong’s Hassen Memorial Arena, and this one is said to be for the books. Organized by West Metal Entertainment, the event, which takes place all day Friday and Saturday, is welcoming 32 metal bands on two stages. “This is the third time we’ve held the festival at the Hassen Arena,” said Jesse Valstar, festival co-founder. “Before that it was a backyard party that just sort of exploded. We moved it indoors to meet capacity and guidelines.” Approximately 600-to800 metal fans are expected to converge on Armstrong’s good nature this weekend, said Valstar. “Tickets are selling and I’m happy,” he said. Since its beginning, the festival has run smoothly with very few hiccups, said Valstar.

Vernon band Xul, featuring from left Bill Ferguson (vocals/guitar), Wallace Huffman (guitar), Marlow Deiter (bass), Lowell Winters (drums), and Levi Meyers (vocals), play the Armstrong Metalfest this weekend at Hassen Arena. “It has received full support from the City of Armstrong and any problems that have arisen have been dealt with ahead of time,” he said. The scope of the festival is also burgeoning, with bands coming from just about every corner of Western Canada. “Every year we try to balance everything so each genre of metal is represented. We

have bands from Kamloops, Vancouver, Prince George, Edmonton, Red Deer... We take bands from each area so we can span it better. We really tried hard to cover the Western Canadian spec this year,” said Valstar. One of the acts scheduled to perform Friday is Vernon’s Xul, a five-piece band who have been on tour across

Canada in support of their latest album, Malignance, the past two months. Known for their energetic and interactive live performances, the band has been captivating audiences and has garnered positive reviews with its own brand of blackened death metal since releasing Malignance, in June, 2012 With songs reminiscent of war-torn landscapes, destructive human nature and evil intent, Xul is said to expand upon the previously established essence of the sub-genre of death metal. Xul has proven itself worthy to share the stage with bands such as Obscura, Exhumed, Vreid, Kampfar, Woods of Ypres, Macabre, Withered, Cephalic Carnage, Archspire and 3 Inches of Blood, some of whom have previously played Armstrong Metalfest. This year’s festival kicks off Friday at around noon and is open to all-ages (those 16 and under will need to be accompanied by an adult.) Bands also take the stage all day Saturday, along with a thrash wrestling event that evening. Camping is available for two-day pass holders, with tickets available locally in advance at the Vernon Rock & Smoke Shop. Full festival details can be found at www. armstrongmetalfest.ca.

Calgary poet wins award named after Vernon’s Lent Morning Star Staff

A Calgary poet has won the Kalamalka Press’ second annual John Lent Poetry-Prose Award, named after the Vernon writer and former regional dean/ professor at Okanagan College’s Vernon campus. Nikki Sheppy’s Grrrlhood: a ludic suite, was selected from nearly 40 manuscripts. “It was a wonderful and challenging pro-

cess this time ‘round,” said Kevin McPherson, one of the judges and editors of Kalamalka Press. “We had so many muscly entrees that the shortlist ended up being quite long.” Honorable mentions went to Natalie Simpson for her work Surge, and Ben Ladouceur for Telegram from the Seventeenth Arrondissement. “Reading Sheppy’s poems ionized our mol-

ecules. They marble lived experiences within raw, fearless and playful linguistic calisthenics,” said McPherson, who joined fellow area writers and teachers, Laisha Rosnau and Jake Kennedy in judging the submissions. Grrrlhood was written in a “spirit of derring-do” and by having “a really great time trying out different literary games and styles, allowing myself to go

astray as much as possible,” said Sheppy, who with this award will see her first published collection of poetry, which she finished while attending the Banff Centre Writing Studio. The honorarium for the winner has increased this year from $100 to $250. The chapbook will be designed by Okanagan College English professor and award-winning bookmaker Jason Dewinetz, with letterpress printed by students in the college’s writing and publishing diploma program. Sheppy is familiar with Dewinetz’s work as a bookmaker through Greenboathouse Press. “I love the tactility and attentive design of letterpress books, which continue to seduce readers into an engagement with the materiality of literature,” she said. Last year’s winner, Ariel Gordon’s How to Make a Collage, sold out within two weeks.

RCMP Cst. Sue Kolibaba, SaveOn-Foods manager Jim Tennant and staff wave to Andy Bhatti as he starts his cycle in Vernon, en route to Vancouver, Monday on the Men of Hope Ride for a Reason.

Man on a mission Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

A smile beamed across RCMP Const. Sue Kolibaba’s face as she watched a former drug-addicted jail bird take off on a mission Monday to ensure more kids don’t end up like he was. Andy Bhatti beamed right back at Kolibaba, as he cycled from Vernon Monday on his way to Vancouver on his Men of Hope Ride for a Reason. The Langley resident is riding to raise awareness about child sexual abuse – something he was a victim of. That’s how Bhatti and Kolibaba met in 2006. Working on sex crimes, Kolibaba was led to Bhatti as one of the potential victims of a suspect she was investigating at the time (and who was later imprisoned). She still remembers the first time she met Bhatti. Recently released from jail, he was drug addicted and in rough shape. Now she beams at the fact that Bhatti’s once offending potty mouth has even disappeared. “It’s just incredible,” said Kolibaba.

“A lot of my victims you don’t even know what’s happened to them or you do and it’s sad.” Bhatti, now seven-years-clean, is determined to make his ride a success – even if just one kid gets help. “If I would’ve got help maybe I wouldn’t have spent eight years in jail, maybe I wouldn’t have been a heroin addict,” he said. “If kids from zero to 18 don’t get help then they could end up like I was.” Which is also why his ride is in support of Sophie’s Place, providing specialized services to physically, mentally or sexually abused children. As much as he would like to forget his past, Bhatti knows that by sharing his own story he could help others get the help they need. And even despite not having rode a bike since he was a kid, he is determined to cycle his message all the way to Vancouver. “I’m persistent and cocky, I’ll do it,” said Bhatti, who is making stops along the way to his final destination in Vancouver Saturday.

Produce sharing begins Morning Star Staff

Armstrong and area residents are invited to share any surplus harvest they may have to help feed the need. The Armstrong Food Initiative Society is starting up the produce sharing program again. “We will be open every Monday from July 15 until Oct. 14 using the Community Garden (located behind the red caboose) as a base,” said Jill de la Salle, with AFIS. Anyone who would like to donate any extra produce they have is invited to bring it to the garden between

9 and 10 a.m. Monday morning. Anyone who does not have access to fresh produce can pick it up on Monday from 10 a.m. to noon. “The society started this program simply to reduce local food waste by linking the growers who might have extra produce with the consumers who might need it,” said de la Salle. “We would like to thank Shepherd’s Hardware in Armstrong for donating a canopy to our group so we and the produce will be shielded from the sun and rain.”

and provides options of a 1.6, five, or 10-kilometre walk/run followed by a 25 or 50-metre swim (just the dogs swim). “Our inaugural event last year was a lot of fun and this year we hope to see it grow,” said Shelly Korobanik, owner

Carmin Lepinski with her pooch partner, Cabella, finishing the swim portion of the 2012 Doggie Duathlon. of Pooch Partners. “The event is a fun experience for all participants and we have some great random draw prizes from a number of our sponsors.” Last year, the event helped raise almost $500 for the Vernon branch of the B.C. SPCA, and

this year’s event will support the Vernon & District Animal Care Society. Registration is available in person at Stussi Sport (Wednesday to Saturday) and online at www.poochpartners.ca (under Events).

The Red Cross reaches across communities Kimberley Nemrava Special to The Morning Star

In British Columbia last year, Red Cross directly served nearly 452,000 people with the support of more than 2,200 volunteers. Our health equipment loan program provided more than 137,000 pieces of equipment. We responded to 72 disasters and provided 98 courses and workshops. We’ve been a leader in swimming and water safety since 1946 and saw more than 237,000 Red Cross Swim participants last year. Our Violence and Abuse Prevention program reached nearly 29,000 youth. Building community participation is one of our key strategies for helping vulnerable people. Training teams of disaster services volunteers, reducing and preventing relationship abuse and bullying through education, teaching water safety and first aid, and fundraising locally for disasters are some examples of how we mobilise the community on issues that can impact us all. Our work goes beyond the borders of our

province and even our country. Wherever disaster strikes, everyone in the Red Cross/Red Crescent family is ready to help. Last year, when Hurricane Sandy devastated communities in the eastern U.S., local Red Cross disaster management volunteer Robbin Stephens was among dozens of Canadian volunteers who dropped everything to go to New York to assist American Red Cross in their relief efforts. Robbin, a Red Cross volunteer since 1998, used her wealth of experience with the many floods, fires and storms across B.C. to help in the aftermath of the superstorm. Along with volunteers from around the world, Robbin helped deliver millions of relief items to thousands of people impacted by the storm. We are extremely proud of our local volunteers like Robbin, who dedicate large portions of their lives to the work of the Red Cross, helping vulnerable people when they need it most. I encourage everyone to find out what

the Red Cross does in your community and also how to get involved. You will learn both how to help others and how to help yourself in times of need. The Canadian Red Cross Society is a non-profit, volunteer-based humanitarian organization dedicated to improving the situation of the most vulnerable in Canada and throughout the world. Founded in 1909, the Canadian Red Cross has served Canadians by providing disaster preparedness and response, injury prevention and community health and care. As part of the international Red Cross Movement, Canadian Red Cross provides public education and awareness on and support to international relief efforts in countries affected by disaster or conflict. For more information on the Canadian Red Cross, please contact your local Red Cross office or visit www.redcross.ca/. Kimberley Nemrava is the provincial director of the Canadian Red Cross, Western Zone.

Dip into these dips

’ve decided to talk about dips today. Such a small word, but with meanings that can vary from a smokeless tobacco (jammed into one’s cheek - yuck!), to leaving abruptly (as in escape), to a pickpocket, to someone who is stupid or does something stupid, to a cathi Litzenberger dance move, to off colour sexual remarks, to a brief plunge in liquid or water, and finally, to a food or something used to add flavour or texture to food — the latter to which I’ll refer in today’s column. I love making, serving, and eating homemade appetizers, and dips fit this category well. Summer is a great time to make a whole meal of appies, or to get all your friends to bring one for the evening or day’s gathering. Somehow I think vegetarians and vegan readers will be referring to me as a “dip� with today’s recipes because they both include bacon (referred to by some, as man’s favourite food.) But I promise, I will make it up to them in a following column. Both these recipes are served warm and will be a hit for most people. The second can be made as spicy as you like by simply add-

kitchen wit & wisdom

ing some of the seeds to the mixture. If you’re a popper lover, this dip will disappear so fast you’ll wish you had doubled the recipe. Enjoy. BLT Dip 1-1/2 pound bacon, cooked, drained, crumbled, and divided 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup sour cream 1/4 cup mayonnaise 1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded) or to taste 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste) or I use 1 large minced clove garlic 1 tablespoons mustard 2 cups chopped seeded tomatoes 1-1/2 cup shredded Iceberg lettuce Pepper and salt to taste Toasted bread rounds, crackers, or pita chips. Preheat oven to 350˚. Spray a 1-1⠄2 quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside 3/4 cup crumbled bacon. In a large bowl, combine remaining bacon, cream cheese, shredded cheeses, sour cream, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and mustard. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until hot

and bubbly. Sprinkle chopped tomatoes, remaining 3/4 cup crumbled bacon and lettuce over hot dip. Serve immediately with toasted bread rounds, crackers, or pita chips. Delicious! JaLapeĂąo popper Dip 6-8 slices of bacon, diced and cooked crispy 2 8-oz packages of cream cheese, soft 1 cup of mayonnaise 4-6 jalapenos, chopped and de-seeded. The seeds will make it fiery hot. 1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, shredded 1/4 cup diced green onion Topping: 1 cup of crushed crackers ( I used Ritz) 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese 1/2 stick of butter, melted Preheat oven to 350F. Combine all of the ingredients into a medium bowl. Stir well. Transfer to an oven proof dish. The size of the dish depends on how thick the dip is. The thicker the dip the longer it may need to warm up. I use a stoneware dish that is round and measures 12 inches across. My dip is usually about an inch thick. Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle all over the top of the dip. Bake the dip for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly. Note: If you like a spicier dip, include some of the seeds, but beware!

Safety tips for riders and drivers Contributed to The Morning Star

Known for its great weather and windy back roads, the Okanagan is the home of a large and ever-growing motorcycle community. As the weather is sunnier, more motorcyclists are on the road and enjoying their favourite sport.  The Kelowna & District Safety Council offers the following tips to ensure that everyone, motorcyclists and drivers alike, arrives home safely.  Drivers should: • Be on the lookout for motorcyclists. Motorcycles are small and can easily slip into a driver’s blind spot. Use your turn signals, check your mirrors, and always shoulder check before changing lanes or overtaking other vehicles. • Stay off your cell phones! Talking or texting on a handheld while operating a vehicle is not only illegal but the distraction it causes is extremely hazardous to other road users and especially to motorcyclists. • Use caution and scan well when entering an intersection. Nearly 80 per cent of urban intersection two-vehicle motorcycle collisions occur at signalized intersections. In 75 per cent of these crashes the motorcycle had the right of way. •  Don’t tailgate. Motorcycles have better braking abilities than cars, so leave a greater space cushion between you and the rider in front of you than you would for a driver.  Motorcyclists should: • Think ahead, ride defensively, and assume you are invisible to other road users. Remember, motorists have been used to not seeing motorcyclists for at least five months, and they may well not see what they are not expecting to see. • After months of not riding, recognize that your skills are not as sharp as they were at the end of last

season, so keep your riding at a moderate pace until the rust wears off. •  Practice your slow speed control and sudden stops in an open area free from traffic.  • Consider taking a rider refresher from a professional school.  Riding is a lifelong sport, and riders should continue to improve their skills in order to stay on top of their game. • Wear all the gear all the time. By dressing for the crash and not for the weather, riders will be best protected. This includes a DOT approved helmet, motorcycle jacket, gloves, sturdy leather boots, and jeans or riding pants. Consider high-vis gear or a safety vest. • Ensure your bike is properly prepared and ready for riding this season after winter’s storage:  tires (adequate tread depth, no cracks on sidewalls, properly inflated to manufacturers’ recommendations); replenish oil and filter if not done prior to storage; check brake pads for wear; ensure all fasteners are tight. • Use turn signals every time you change lanes and be sure to perform an inside shoulder check with every lane change. • Dominate your lane so that you will be most visible to other road users.  • Scan 12 seconds ahead of you and check your mirrors every five-to-eight seconds. • Ride Smart. Don’t stunt ride in traffic and never ride impaired.  If you’re feeling too tired or too preoccupied with life’s stresses to ride, don’t.  The Kelowna & District Safety Council is a nonprofit organization that has been a provincial leader in motorcycle safety since 1980. With the largest rider training facility outside of the Lower Mainland, KDSC trains more than 500 new riders each year.  For information on any of KDSC’s programs, visit www.kdsc.bc.ca or call 250-765-3163.

Provincial funds slammed

@flyerland

Morning Star Staff

Questions are arising over the viability of some community programs. The Community Social Services Bargaining Association, which represents nine unions, says services for vulnerable families may be cut because the provincial government’s didn’t provide bridge funding for a 1.5 per cent wage increase that was negotiated for frontline workers earlier this year. “This is unacceptable. There shouldn’t be any further cuts to programs or services due to a lack of bridge funding,” said Patsy Harmston, CSSBA chairperson. “We negotiated the 1.5 per cent wage increase in good faith and found savings in our collective agreement to pay for it. We upheld our side of the deal. The government should do the same.” Among the agencies that could be impacted are the John Howard Society, the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club and the North Okanagan Youth and

“There shouldn’t be any further cuts to programs or services.” — Patsy Harmston

Family Services Society. Harmston says the Ministry of Children and Family Development has failed to provide bridge funding to cover the payroll increase until the cost savings can be achieved in two to three years but the Ministry for Social Development has provided funding for groups it supports. “Why are some programs being treated differently than others? This discrepancy amounts to program cuts by stealth and bad faith bargaining,” she said.

Just in time for Summer!

Free flights ready to soar Morning Star Staff

Experiencing the excitement of flying over the hills and valleys of Vernon is usually left to those lucky enough to own their own airplane. However, a group of local pilots and airplane owners is trying to change that by offering free flights for kids Saturday at the Vernon Airport. “To see the smiles on these kids faces when the wheels come off the ground makes it all worth it,” said Barry Jackson, who is a pilot. “This is a really good chance for kids to see if they’re interested in an aviation career.” The Canadian Owners and Pilots Association for Kids aviation program, run by volunteers out of the Vernon Flying Club, pairs pilots with young people between eight and 17 years of age to give them a taste of flying.

In addition to getting time in the air, participants also take in a ground school session to learn about the airplane, the science of flying, and what it takes to earn their own coveted pilot’s license. Once back on the ground, junior pilots’ names are added to the virtual logbook to commemorate their flight. While pilots and owners donate their time, aircraft, and fuel to keep the flights free for all participants, there is also a squadron of additional volunteers that keep the event running. “Safety is the top priority for everyone, and each pilot is licensed by Transport Canada,” said Jackson. To find out more, future aviators can visit http:// copaforkids.org or to register by e-mail at copa. vernon@shaw.ca

Tigers neutralize Venom in Game 1 Morning Star Staff

On paper, the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League final between the Vernon Source For Sports Tigers and Kamloops Venom looks like a wash. After watching the No. 4 seed Venom (they finished the regular season at 5-101) stun the No. 1 Kelowna Raiders in last week’s semifinal, the Tigers know better. Vernon, who shared an identical 12-31 record with Kelowna, relied on stingy defence to stymie the upstart Venom 9-6 in Game 1 of their best-of-five championship series Sunday night at Kal Tire Place. Game 2 went Tuesday in Kamloops, with Game 3 set for Thursday night (7:30) in Vernon. “We knew Kamloops would come in and play strong,” said Tigers’ assistant Keith Hanna. “Their team has gotten better as the season went along.” The Cats took a 3-2 lead into the first intermission, with both Kamloops goals coming on backdoor plays. Hanna said the defence addressed the breakdowns between periods, which resulted in a stellar string of shutout lacrosse in the second frame. “Our dee is really communicating well together now,” said Hanna. “Our defence is floating from zone to man-to-man on command, and they’re recognizing

Kamloops’ game strategy.” Vernon was able to hold Kamloops scoreless in the second frame, even while killing 10 minutes in penalties, including a full 5-on-3. “Our goaltender, Joel (Fruncillo), was stellar,” said Hanna. “That and our shortman was very good. Our boys came out ready to play and we stuck to our gameplan.” The majority of Vernon’s penalties resulted from aggressive play while chasing loose balls, which Hanna was fine with, but he noted there were a couple of unnecessary minors, which is something Vernon needs to clamp down on. Nolan Frame led the Vernon offence with three goals, two of them in the first period. Ryan Sarazin and Daryl Landels, each with 2+1, Jay Seaton (1+2) and Liam Drabiuk rounded out the attack in front of Fruncillo, who finished with 46 saves. Captain Brett Hanna supplied three assists, and Jordan Orr had two. Jerome Thorne netted 2+1 for the Venom, who got 1+3 from Blaine Boomer and singles by Kyle McLellan, Brody Jorgenson and Trent Maunder. Dalan Etter recorded 29 stops. The winner advances to Junior B provincials over the B.C. Day long weekend at Copeland Arena in Burnaby.

Controls quiet Riot to climb men’s league standings Morning Star Staff

The Turn-Key Controls (7-4-1) gained some ground in the North Okanagan Soccer League table, defeating Riot FC 3-1 and drawing NOD Eagle Homes 1-1 in makeup action. Turn-Key failed to capitalize on a couple of early chances Monday night against the Riot at Marshall Field #3, including a post in the opening minutes of a scoreless first half. Fresh off playing in the U17 Provincials, Mike Bennett wasted little time opening the scoring in the second half, taking a pass from Andrew Pool and beating the keeper short side. Bennett proved dangerous yet again when his shot found the post and Conan Ackert was there to convert the rebound for the 2-0 lead. Victor Gouchee was solid again in the Turn-Key net, making the Total Restoration Save of the Game on a Riot push up the field. He was beaten on the rebound off a spectacular bicycle kick by Patrick Schindler. Preston Tucker put the game away for good when he

converted a pretty tic-tac-toe play up the field from Pool and Ackert. Turn-Key drew Eagle Homes Sunday night in a highlyphysical affair that saw the two squads go home with a well-deserved point. Eagle Homes started the scoring in the eighth minute when a shot from well outside took an unfortunate bounce off a Turn-Key defender and past Gouchee, who was bold in his Turn-Key debut. Gouchee was solid in keeping NOD at bay before Pool located some space in the defence and launched the equalizer just before the half. The second half saw the squads keep battling in the midfield. Nolan’s Pharmasave Man of the Match Nathan Tucker was firm on the back end for Turn-Key alongside defenders Carson Haywood-Farmer, Bryce Paterson and Kyle Goodgrove. Meanwhile, Vernon Kal Tire rolled over the Salmon Arm Beer Badgers 4-1 in Kelowna Men’s League 35+ action Monday night at Marshall #2.

After a slow start, Kal Tire (9-4) came on when Jesse Knight tallied his 10th snipe of the year after breaking free. A few minutes later, Rodney Goodchild pinned a hard shot off the post and in. Salmon Arm countered after a conflict in the 18 led to a penalty kick. Knight missed low, right on a second-half penalty kick but then made up for it when he stole the ball and beat the defender and keeper. Later, Mark Budgen made a great cross to Kriss Yargeau, whose header went off the crossbar. Rounding out the scorMODEL SHOWN: CR2E3DE ing was Geoff Straight, who beat the keeper and placed the Lease for ball in the back of the net.

Steckly cruises Dub for first series win NASCAR/Morning Star Staff

Scott Steckly must feel good vibrations whenever he’s around Vernon’s Motoplex Speedway. The Milverton, Ont. native has three wins in his last four appearances there, including the checkered flag at Saturday’s A&W Cruisin’ the Dub 300. His other result in his No. 22 Canadian Tire Dodge – a third-place finish in last year’s visit to Vernon’s half-mile tri-oval. The $11,000 win couldn’t have come at a better time for Steckly, who broke a 17-race drought, vaulting him into fourth place in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 standings. It was his 12th career win and came after back-to-back runner-up finishes. Although he pulled away from runner-up Jason Hathaway of Dutton, Ont. to win by a margin of 2.197 seconds, Steckly said the final 100 laps involved plenty of hard charging. “I thought when we got tires with 130 to go that we were just going to ride for a bit, but there was no riding,” Steckly said. “Everybody was going just as hard as they could.” Steckly expressed a sense of relief at getting back to victory lane for the first time since September of 2011. “We didn’t win at all last season and you begin to wonder if you’re ever going to win again,” he said. “To win here at Vernon is great. The fans here are amazing. We’re on a roll. We had two second-place finishes the last two races, now a win. “We just want to keep the momentum going and go to Saskatoon (Velocity Prairie Thunder tonight at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway) to win.” In a season in which many contenders have faltered, Steckly said it’s important to not give up. “It just proves to you that you’ve got to just keep going for wins and trying to win races, because anything

can happen,” he said. “You’ve just got to keep going hard every week and you can’t get down. And that’s what we did. I think we were 24th in points after two races. Now we’re fourth or fifth.” Hathaway, meanwhile, hopes to build momentum from his secondplace finish as he pilots his No. 3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge in Saskatoon. “We had a good run,” said Hathaway, of the Dub 300. “We led a bunch of laps. We made good adjustments. There hasn’t been a race this year that we haven’t made good adjustments. We can’t wait to get to Saskatoon. It’s always a good show and we run well there.” Sun Peaks’ Jim White, driving the No. 21 Bowers & Wilkins/A&W Dodge out of Steckly’s shop, had a career-best third-place finish before a hometown crowd. “This is really important,” said White. “These fans have been supporting us for so long. Without the fans, we wouldn’t be doing what we’re doing.” Mark Dilley was fourth, while L.P. Dumoulin finished fifth to take over the points lead from D.J. Kennington, who was ninth. Ron Beauchamp Jr. was sixth, followed by Cameron Hayley, Ryley Seibert, Kennington and rookie Alex Guenette. Pole-winner J.R. Fitzpatrick led the first 39 laps and ran with the leaders early, but ended up finishing 39 laps back in 19th after encountering mechanical trouble. Dumoulin leads Kennington by two points in the championship standings – 191 to 189. Hathaway is third at 181, followed by Steckly at 177, Martin Roy at 171, Fitzpatrick at 169, Ryley Seibert at 160, Jason White at 153, Noel Dowler at 152 and Beauchamp at 152. The A&W Dub 300 will air Sunday, 10:30 a.m. PT on TSN, and Saturday.

Sun roster shaping up at camp Black Press Sports

KELOWNA – With a new head coach, and half of the club’s 72-man roster pulling on orange and brown for the first time, expect the Okanagan Sun to be a markedly different club in 2013. If all goes as planned, Shane Beatty and his staff will field a tougher, edgier and more athletic squad than the one that posted a dismal 3-7 record during the 2012 B.C. Football Conference season. “We were soft on offence, soft on defence and soft on special teams last year, and that has to change,” said Beatty, a former Sun player entering his rookie season as the club’s head coach. “As coaches, it’s going to be our job to get the kids mentally and physically prepared to play hard and play physical on every down. We want to be the kind of team that flies around, makes plays and makes life really tough on our opponents.” Almost two weeks into training camp, Beatty and his staff are starting to get a clearer picture of what the Sun will look like for their July 27 home season opener against the Chilliwack Huskers.

At quarterback, incumbent Cam Bedore is being pushed for the starting role by Theo Deezar, a 6-foot-5 Winnipeg native who spent last season with the CIS Manitoba Bisons. “Both kids compete hard, both have strong arms, so we’re happy with the way that position is shaping up,” said Beatty. “Both are smart players, so I think this one will go down to the wire.” At running back, Beatty said a three-horse race is taking shape between returnees Alex Bradley and Dillon Fortune, and newcomer Marcus Cooper. On the O-line, where bodies are always at a premium, the coaching staff has 11 players to work with, led by returnees Devon Kozar and Will Halibiski. One of the deepest areas of the ball club is at receiver where 16 players will compete for playing time.

Ghost Reign (right), ridden by Jake Samuels, holds off a late charge by Danelle Dibert, riding Andthatsthetruth (middle), for the win in Vernon Racing Days Sunday at Kin Horse Park. The fifth race was for horses three years old and older at a distance of 6 1/2 furlongs for a purse of $3,400. The next card goes Sunday, July 28, with a 1:15 p.m. parade to the post.

C’s runners-up in Kelowna hurling five strong innings and allowing two runs. A defensive lapse in the sixth inning saw the C’s freefall. Landy went 2-for-3. Vernon fell 9-7 to the Rutland Rays Saturday with Jacob Soucy pitching five innings and allowing just two earned runs. Hayden Vardon was stellar in closing things out. Defence was questionable once again for the C’s. The Canadians regrouped to face Airdrie again in the semifinals where their bats and defence came alive in a 12-7 victory. Wellman got the start and pitched a complete game, striking out four and allowing five earned runs. Liefke hit the first pitch of the game deep to right field for an early 1-0 lead. At his next at bat, Liefke crushed a threerun dinger to dead centre. Soucy hammered one to centre, missing a homer by inches, and Arron Fairbairn went 2-for-3 with three RBI. Noah Foufalous and Eric Embleton each had two hits to help send the C’s to the finals.

VERNON MINOR FASTBALL ASSOCIATION

smacked a monster home run in the third, and Vernon’s defence started to come together behind the pitching of Erik Colwell and Porteous in the middle innings. Brayden Beacom and Eric Foufoulas shared the difficult task of catching duties in this epically long game that took almost 3 ½ hours. Ryan Gamage had three outs at first and Nakoda Parker supplied three great catches in right field. Maguire Lauridsen, who returned to the lineup after vacation, added two singles, two RBI and two runs. Colwell had the crowd buzzing as he hit an inside-thepark grand slam in the sixth inning. In Saturday afternoon pool play, the Canadians outlasted Surrey 22-16. Alyssa Racine started on the hill and allowed one run before she had to leave the game with an injury. Christopher Macintosh, Beacom, Foufoulas and Koll Cherkowski all saw pitching duties against hard-hitting Surrey. Macintosh was stellar at shortstop, throwing out three batters at first while Foufoulas gunned down two runners. Gamage had a strong game at first recording five outs while driving in five runs. Parker had three ribbies. Landen Harison circled the bases every time he was up, scoring four times. Cherkowski, Parker, Foufoulas and Matthew Hansen each scored three runs. Vernon then ambushed Salmon Arm 16-2 with Cherkowski giving up just one run over 3 1/3 innings. He helped his own cause with two hits and one RBI. Porteus smacked a double and a triple with two RBI. Hansen hit a two-run double, while struck out three batters in the final inning and also knocked in three runs. In Friday action, the C’s grounded Rutland 12-7 and brushed back Kelowna 15-10. Harison collected four RBI against Rutland, while Parker came within a dinger of hitting for the cycle versus Kelowna. Colwell, Foufoulas and Cherkowski each produced three hits and Harison was 2-for-3 with three RBI.

Legends lock up B.C. bronze Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan Legends claimed the silver medal in the B.C. Pee Wee C Lacrosse Championships Sunday in Kamloops. The underdog Legends bowed 6-3 to the VancouverKillarney Burrards in the final after clipping the Sunshine Coast 3-2 in the semis. The Burrards upset Vanderhoof in the other semifinal. Tourney all-star Rowan Miller gave the Legends an early lead in the gold-medal game, but the Burrards grabbed a 2-1 first-period lead. Vancouver went into a defensive shell to protect the lead and the Legends brought it to within 3-2 with a goal by Kael Black. An uncharacteristic miscue from the Legends put the Burrards up 4-2 after two. The Legends fought hard against the Burrards’ 1-4 defence and Quintin Kimble managed to free up Miller to bring it to 5-3 with a couple of minutes left before the Burrards added an empty-netter. The semifinal was an absolute goalie clinic with Derek Pereboom of the Legends going save-for-save with Noah Sheldon, arguably the best goalie at the provincials at any level. The Sunshine crew found a seam in the Legends’ defence and squeaked one through Pereboom for the only goal of the first period. Sunshine Coast went up 2-0 early in the second even though the Legends were carrying the play. The Legends seemed frustrated and were visibly shaken by the inability to put one past Sheldon. Assistant coach Rob Spraggs reminded the team that every shift counts and it was on everyone, not just the individuals, to rally the team to victory. The two underage pickups, JD Spraggs and Tye Krause, rallied around the words and set the tone for the second period, picking up loose balls and taking the game to the Sunshine entry. Energized by the young pickups’ play, Zach Gares moved himself into an open area, gave the ball to Miller, who quickly moved it to Black, who burned one by Sheldon. A fluke goal by Miller put the Legends even and then the improbable happened. Assistant coach Riley Spraggs saw a hole in Sheldon’s game and told Owen McKill to exploit the long shot from the middle when he wasn’t expecting it. Seeing an opportunity, McKill moved the ball up to Game MVP Aidan Spraggs, who avoided the Sunshine pressure and gave McKill a perfect pass to unleash a rocket shot that surprised Sheldon. “We played a really great tournament as a team,” said North Okanagan head coach Lynn Spraggs. “We struggled at the beginning of the year and it didn’t look good, but the parents and players were really supportive of what we planned out and I think every player improved. That every single player on our roster registered a point in the provincials, including the goalie, is a credit to every player on the team and their work ethic. “We didn’t rely on a couple of guys to do everything just to win; we put players in a positive environment to succeed and we got the best game from everyone. This team succeeded beyond anyone’s expectations. It was awesome.” The Legends started the B.C. playdowns on a tear, building up a 5-0 lead and doubling Delta 12-6. Brayden Norlin, Miller (5+2), Kimble and Black (2+1) supplied first-period snipes. Delta overcame the initial onslaught to make things competitive, but the Legends rallied behind goals by Krause and Gares, and assists by the Warrior Fair Play Award winner Spraggs and his defensive partner McKill. Alex Riches rounded out the scoring with Miller earning game MVP. The North Okanagan then fell 7-4 to the Burrards with Vancouver scoring on their first shift and making it 2-0 before Norlin set up Miller (3) before the first period finished. Black and Miller dominated in the second period, with Pereboom drawing an assist on the final goal. Jack Riches was named game MVP. Knowing that a spot in the finals was all but assured with the Burrards’ defeat of Deltas earlier in the morning, the Legends chose to work on their game against the feisty, but depleted West Kootenay roster with a 12-0 victory. Gares picked up the MVP. Vanderhoof stopped the Sunshine Coast 3-1 for the bronze.

Andrew Whinston (facing) of the Vernon Square Liquor Store Stars tries to direct a bouncing ball past Andy Marshall of Brandt’s Creek Pub in Okanagan Men’s 45+ Soccer League play Monday night at Marshall Field #5.

Bauml big for Stars Morning Star Staff

Burly Rob Bauml started Monday night by smacking golf balls at the driving range, in his soccer gear. He finished the evening by pulling the hat trick as the Vernon Square Liquor Store Stars bounced Brandt’s Creek 3-1 at Marshall Field #5. A striker playing just his third Capri Insurance 45+ Soccer League game of the season, Bauml opened the scoring in the third minute when he faked a shot and went around keeper Marty Vince after a nifty feed by midfielder Steve McCourt. Brandt’s Creek (2-8-2) equalized a few minutes later when Robin Carter nodded in a corner by Kelvin Brown. The Stars controlled the majority of play and went ahead at 35 minutes when Bauml, a Lake Lenore, Sask. product, headed in a cross by midfielder Dave Howes. Bauml added the clincher with eight minutes left on an assist by Art Renaud. Nigel Clack also helped the Stars rule the midfield in what was an abnormally quiet night at the 5-6-1 Stars’ back end.

Humpbacks draw 1-1 with Spirit

The slumping Leko Precast Camels drew 1-1 with the RPM Automotive Spirit at Kelowna City Park. Former California junior college football roadrunner Zane Klym nicely placed a tap in after passes by Gordie Howard and Rob Parkin for the Camels’ goal at eight minutes. For the rest of the game, RPM keeper Harold Schock, showing good form, and a strong back four, kept the high-scoring Camels from completing any additional attempts. At the other end, Camels’ keeper Ron Krause was also getting a bit of exercise from a number of RPM tries. Early in the second half, Claudio Dibiase capitalized on a scramble in front of the

Camels’ net with defender Stuart Whitling trapped by two Spirit players. The Humpbacks, winless in three straight, are 8-1-3, while the surprising Spirit are 6-3-3. League-leading Brown Benefits got three goals from speedster Tony Gonzales in a 9-1 thumping of Lake Country at Beasley Park. Both teams had five subs and the game got off to a fast start with Jim Kruiper capitalizing on a great feed from Darryl Hazell after only 10 minutes. Steve Nader added another from close range in the 20th minute and then Gord Brown fired in a screamer from the left wing that Lake Country keeper Todd Ryder lost in the sun. Brad House slotted home a beautiful volley from a corner at 40 minutes to make it 4-0 Browns at the half. Browns spread the ball around the park and made Lake Country work very hard to get any possession in the second half as Gonzales pulled the hat trick and singles came from Lionel Hoffman and Nader. In the last few seconds, Bruce McAuliffe, who just came back from soccer striker camp in Italy, replied for the Lakers (8-4). Steven Heiss had a very solid game between the sticks for Browns (12-0).

Kickers move into third place

North Country Appraisals Kickers moved into sole possession of third place by shutting down Taco Time Cantinas 4-0 at Mission 71 Park. Greg Bevandick (2), Olaf Dijkstra and Wil Kruiper supplied goals for the Kickers (8-2-1). Cantinas’ keeper Jay Christenson made a dozen quality saves, while North Country set a modernday record for offsides. David Gadd picked up the shutout. Shortstaffed Cantinas fell to 3-8-1. A truck-car accident near Summerland closed the highway so the Penticton United at Bosman Accounting game set for Vernon was postponed.

KELOWNA – They call themselves The Lunch Box Boys. At the 2013 Valley of Champions Baseball Tournament in Kelowna, the Rutland Rockies proved true to their moniker. The Rockies battled, scratched and clawed their way to the tournament’s Bantam AA title last weekend at Edith Gay Park, clinching the gold medal with an 8-3 win over Surrey. In Sunday’s final, Vernon righthander Kyle Ciurka didn’t allow an earned run over five innings while Brandon Ludwig struck out the side in the seventh to secure the victory. Matthew Greer and Liam Hughes sparked the offence with two hits and two RBI each. Ciurka also plays first and third base. The victory in the final avenged an earlier loss to Surrey in the round-robin, the Rockies’ only setback in six games during the tourney. “They really wanted that second game against Surrey in the final as they felt they gave it away in the last game in the round robin,” said Rockies coach Rob Law. “All our boys played with heart, intensity and determination. Every player contributed in some way.” Rutland opened the weekend with a 21-4 win over Kamloops as Vernon’s Jacob Holland, who caught all seven innings, had three hits and two RBI. Game 2 saw Cole Van Every deliver three hits in an 11-9 win over Cowichan, while Liam Hughes struck out seven. Greer had three hits and three RBIs as the Rockies then ambushed Sherwood Park of Alberta 19-5. The fourth game produced their only loss, 9-7 to Surrey. In the semifinal, Greer had three hits and two RBI and Ludwig homered as Rutland won 8-7 over Victoria. “They thought they’d won the World Series,” Law said of the win over Victoria. “It just showed the smaller associations can play against the bigger ones.” Law said the Rockies – who are comprised of players from Kelowna, West Kelowna, Rutland and Vernon – showed throughout the weekend they could play whatever brand of ball was necessary to get the job done. “They played small ball when they had to, they brought out the long ball when they needed it, we had outstanding pitching, and defensively they were great, too,” he said. “They’re Lunch Box Boys, they said, ‘Let’s go to work, get dirty and get this done.’” The Rockies are hoping the same brand of baseball will pay dividends at the B.C. Bantam AA championship in two weeks. Rutland hosts the provincial tournament, Aug. 1-4, at Edith Gay Park. The rest of the Rockies: shortstop/3B Kadyn Thomas of Vernon, Noah RingnessLaw, Jacob Groinus, Keegan Perron, Keyshon Jackson, Gavin Barrett, Chase Gaudette and Cam Rasmussen (assistant coaches Dennis Holland of Vernon and Mark Gaudette.)

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder WHICH SUIT SHOULD SOUTH ATTACK FIRST? Denis Healey, a British politician, said, “Follow the first rule of holes: If you are in one, stop digging.” If he were a golfer, presumably he would have said, “If you are in a hole, take the ball out and move to the next tee.” In today’s deal, though, South’s problem is which suit to dig at first. He is in three no-trump, and West leads the spade queen. After West opens three spades, North has a textbook takeout double, and South plunges into the logical game contract. South starts with five top tricks: two spades, one heart and two diamonds. He can gain three more winners from clubs and at least two

from hearts. And there is a natural instinct immediately to play a club, but that is fatal. East wins with his ace and returns his remaining spade, which establishes West’s suit while West still has the heart king as an entry. Declarer needs to realize two things. First, that if West has the heart king and club ace, the contract is unmakable. Second, that it cannot cost to take the heart finesse before touching clubs. So South plays a diamond to dummy’s king, then runs the heart queen. If the finesse wins, declarer can switch to clubs to establish nine winners. Here, though, the finesse loses and West probably perseveres in

spades. South wins and knocks out the club ace, knowing that East is now out of spades. If instead West returns his second diamond at trick four, declarer takes the trick and plays a club, aware that he cannot lose more than one heart, one club and two diamonds.

Q: A:

What is a Feng Shui Consultant?

A Feng Shui Consultant is someone you hire to assess your home (or business) to see how the space can support better health, wealth and happiness. Similar to how your own body works, if you are strong mentally, physically and emotionally, you can achieve success. However, if there is a weak link in any of these areas, it will affect your performance. Your home is exactly the same: I can see where the weak links are, and more importantly, how to strengthen them. When you are well supported in your home, you are more likely to use your skills for stronger emotional wellbeing, career success and a flourishing romance. Remember success is a science: if you have the conditions, you get the results. As a highly successful Feng Shui Consultant, I can identify the conditions so you can achieve the results… and yes, I’m the old fashioned classic doctor: I make house calls…

Q: A:

Ears can be blocked in a number of ways. The external canal can be blocked and earwax or small foreign objects, such as Q-tips should never be put in the ear canal. Another type of blockage can occur in the middle ear, which is most often caused by an ear infection and fluid. In both cases, it is important to see your doctor who will diagnose the problem and prescribe the correct treatment.

Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas that occurs naturally in the earth’s crust. It is a product of the decay of uranium. The radon gas itself is not a problem but its decay products are. These radioactive products can attach themselves to the lung tissue when radon gas is inhaled - this can cause lung cancer. The risk is higher with greater exposure, & the effects are long term rather than immediate. Radon which escapes into the air is not a problem as it is quickly diluted. However, when radon becomes trapped in a home it can rise to levels of concern, especially during the winter months when ventilation is at a minimum. Radon can enter a home through cracks in basement floors and walls, openings around pipes or other penetrations in the basement walls and floors. It can also enter through exposed earth in crawlspaces and basements. There are several ways to test for radon gas. A charcoal canister can be used to absorb radon from the air; there are filtering systems where air is pumped through a filter, trapping radon particles. There are grab-sample testers which allow for a quick air sample. These all require the use of a lab to analyze the samples. There is also a radon detector that is similar to a smoke or CO detector that can measure radon levels in the home. Since radon levels can vary at different times of the day & seasons of the year, longer testing times are better. Winter testing is more reliable than summer testing. If you find that there are high levels of radon in your home there a number of different ways to deal with it. For more information contact me or look for it on the Health Canada website or the CMHC website.

Q: A:

I’m thinking about having a Will done. What should I do?

Where there is a Will there is a way. You should make a Will when you marry or start a family or the moment you have any protect-able assets, for instance, you own a house or a business. The protection of your children should be a priority. Would you prefer the government appoint a guardian for your minor children? You will also require an Advance Health Care Directive and a Power of Attorney in case something happens to you and you are unable to make decisions yourself. Many people advertise that they do Wills and Estate Planning. For us, it is a specialty. We have given many presentations on it to community groups and have taught this subject at the Bar Admission course all new lawyers must take. At Laarakker Law, Wills and Estate Planning is not just something we do; it is something we specialize in. After all, the legacy you leave behind is more important than what you leave behind.

Q: A:

I’ve never had my air conditioner serviced. Is this something that I should be doing, and what do you check for?

Absolutely! Like any car or truck, it’s a good idea to have any mechanical equipment checked by a trained professional for abnormalities and signs of wear and tear. Many serious and often costly repairs can be caught early or prevented by having a simple check-up. We recommend having this done every other year, unless your equipment is really old, in which case it may be a good idea to have it checked annually. The most common problem with air conditioners are minor refrigerant leaks that are easy to check; but often lead to inefficient operation, and compressor failures. Most compressors will last about 5 years running on a low refrigerant charge - right about the time your warranty runs out. So get those A/Cs checked out!

Q: A:

Q: A:

We are considering buying a home but are a little confused as to how we pay our realtor for helping us. What do we have to pay for? When you are purchasing a home, the property you are buying will most likely be listed for sale with a local realtor. The seller

of the property pays the listing realtor for selling his home, as well as your realtor acting as the purchaser’s realtor is paid from the same funds. The most common professionals that you will need to help you to buy the home are the mortgage broker, lawyer, home inspector, appraiser and insurance company. Your Mortgage Broker is generally paid by the Lender accepting your application for a Mortgage but you will need to pay the Legal costs for buying and financing your home with a Lawyer or Notary, as well as the cost of your home inspection, appraisal (if required by the Lender) and home insurance policy. To estimate the amount you will need to pay for these fees will be similar to 1.5% of the price of the home.

Can hypnotherapy help me with my fear of flying?

Share your expertise

Hypnosis has helped many people overcome their fear of flying and look forward to and enjoy their flight. It can replace your fears with positive thoughts and feelings of being protected and safe, calm and relaxed. Hypnosis works by reprogramming your subconscious mind and reducing your fear at an unconscious level. Imagine what it would be like to: • Enjoy planning your next out of province or country vacation • Feel relaxed and calm on your way to the airport • Get on a plane feeling comfortable and safe • Enjoy a long flight without concern or panic every time you hear a noise or hit the smallest bit of turbulenc Hypnosis can help you achieve all those feelings and more!
