It’s an old idea being made anew. The Vernon Public Art Gallery has teamed up with the Greater Vernon Museum and approached the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee board of directors with the idea of holding a spring 2014 referendum on cultural facilities. If successful, and if a referendum successfully passes, the art gallery – currently located in the basement of the downtown parkade – would get a new home at the old Vernon Flower Shop site on 31st Avenue, and the museum would expand on its current 32nd Avenue site. Both would be connected by a public walkway and greenspace and both, for the moment, are ballparked at around $6 million each. “We are teaming up again in part due to ordinary efficiencies but it’s also been indicated to us by GVAC that it would be a good idea,” said Andrew Powell, art gallery president who was joined in making a presentation to GVAC directors Thursday morning by gallery executive director Dauna Kennedy Grant and Greater Vernon Museum director Rob Tupper. The goal of the gallery and museum is one that has been pitched since pre-1986, improving the cultural facilities in Greater Vernon. Calling the two projects a “cultural campus,” an idea once pitched along with the Vernon Library at the old Coldstream Hotel site, Powell said the two organizations believe culture makes a community thrive and that Greater Vernon deserves to thrive. At the moment, said Powell, the ability to thrive culturally is stunted by the lack of adequate facilities. “Our goal is a shared one. It’s an idea that’s been thought about before and it’s a great concept,” said Powell. “We’re prepared to advance with it as a phased program for many years. We’re both content with the sites proposed. We expect we’ll be good and happy neighbours.” Added Tupper: “The proximity of the two locations and the opportunity to be joined by public open space and walkways is an exciting prospect. Our board supports the cultural hub concept and looks forward to working with
“We are teaming up again.” — Powell
the art gallery to make this a reality.” Both groups have asked GVAC for help in preparing a planned referendum, which includes whether residents would be asked to vote on both facilities in one question, or if separate questions for each group would be asked. They have requested some background information in regards to costs associated with the recent successful referendum on a new sports complex located at Okanagan College. The gallery and museum would prefer to see both projects under one question, and would prefer a spring referendum as opposed to one later in 2014 with municipal elections looming later in the year in November. “We felt cultural services, especially the two projects working together, deserve to be highlighted in their own merit and not clouded by the municipal election and issues associated with the election,” said Kennedy Grant. “We felt it was really important that we got cultural services out there ahead of time so it can stand on its own, so we can educate people about the projects and have a fair shot at having a successful referendum.” Both groups have said they are prepared to help with referendum costs. Coldstream director Gyula Kiss believes the two organizations have earned the right to go to the public. “This issue has been going on for a long time,” he said. “These people have the right to have the issue go to the public. If people say they want an art gallery, they’ll vote for it. If not, they’ll vote against it. It’s up to us to let them have the opportunity to go to the public.” Directors unanimously passed a motion to have Regional District of North Okanagan staff prepare information on the timeline, resources and costs associated with a proposed spring 2014 art gallery/museum referendum.

Library construction collects honour Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s new library has earned provincial accolades. The new Okanagan Regional Library branch received a Silver Award of Excellence for General Contractor up to $15 Million by the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA). The building, constructed by Task Construction Management, earned the award alongside EllisDon Corporation’s Samuel Brighouse Elementary School and Stuart Olson Dominion Construction’s Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA) L 10K Fit-out. The Silver Award winners in this category represent the region’s construction leaders, and are part of the 25th annual Awards of Excellence. “The Silver Award winners this year all represent companies that were able to bring projects of the highest calibre in on time and on budget,” said Jan Robinson, interim president of VRCA. Three Silver Award winners were selected in most categories for their use of innovative techniques, new materials or exceptional project management. One Silver Award winner from each category will be chosen as the Gold Award winner during the 25th Annual VRCA Awards of Excellence gala dinner on Oct. 17 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. “We are especially excited to make the announcement about this year’s competition, as the Awards of Excellence is celebrating its 25th anniversary,” said Robinson. “This is a significant milestone, and we are planning a special and appropriately significant event this year.”

The new Vernon okanagan Regional Library branch garnered a silver award of excellence for general contractor – in this case Task Construction Management – up to $15 million by the Vancouver Regional Construction Association. In this year’s competition, there were 42 total entrants and 38 projects considered. Over the 25 years the competition has been in place, the value of the projects has grown tremendously, and the total value of projects considered in this year’s competition represented $1.1 billion of construction
throughout B.C. “The judges were extremely impressed with the high quality of the projects nominated this year,” said Tony Everett, chair of the Adjudication Committee. “All the Silver Award winners are true leaders in the industry, and we are proud to honour them at this
year’s milestone event.” The 2013 competition will feature redesigned trophies, as well as other exciting changes to commemorate the 25th anniversary and represent the competition going forward, all of which will be unveiled at the awards ceremony in October.
Divers trying to determine best way to dispose of UXO RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff
It’s an unexploded ordinance (UXO) all right. What kind of UXO found in Kal Lake Monday, however, military divers from Fleet Diving Unit Pacific have yet to determine. As of Thursday, two divers were on the ground and three more were on their way to investigate the discovery of the UXO in Kal Lake in 20-feet of water, about 100-feet off-shore

Divers are trying to determine how to dispose of a Uxo in Kal Lake. from Cosens Bay, by a Sea-Dooer Monday.
“The divers will be doing a reconnaissance of the area and a site survey,” explained Lt.-Navy Greg Menzies, navy public affairs spokesperson. “They are working in close coordination with the RCMP the best method to identify, collect and dispose of the UXO. “The final steps around the UXO will be to make sure the area is safe.” Divers will conduct a sweep of the area after disposing of the UXO. They are expected to be in
the area for four-to-five days. The area was a training site during the Second World War. A number of UXOs have been found in Coldstream and the Commonage since the end of the war. Justin Hildebrand, an Okanagan Dive Club member, was on his Sea-Doo Monday at around 2 p.m. when he stopped and went for a dive. That’s when he discovered the UXO and immediately phoned the RCMP, who alerted the military.

Local market conditions stabilize over summer Morning Star Staff
Following a slight decline, the local housing market is dealing with the heat of summer. The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board (OMREB) reported July 2013 sales activity of all MLS property types improved over the same month last year but was down slightly from June. “Following a fairly flat first quarter, the Okanagan-Shuswap has experienced a steady year-over-year increase in sales during the past four months. While some segments are heating up and seeing a turnaround in consumer demand compared to last year at this time – echoing stronger activity province-wide – overall market conditions are still stabilizing in our board area,” said Karen Singbeil, realtor in the Shuswap Zone and OMREB President. “July is typically slower than June, and
“Now is a great time to buy in the Okanagan-Shuswap while there is still a good selection of properties.” — Karen Singbeil
even more so this year, as some areas have seen more impact than others from the Alberta floods – especially the recreation market in the Shuswap and the investment condo market in the Central Okanagan – segments that have also been affected by tighter credit conditions.” The North Okanagan saw a slight decline in July sales activity, which is more typical of the summer months. “Prices within some property types, such as recreational waterfront in the Shuswap, have seen significant adjust-
ments,” said Singbeil. Board-wide (Peachland to Revelstoke): Overall sales of all property types reported in OMREB’s board area during July improved by 12.4 per cent compared to 2012 – to 716 units from 637. Total residential sales for the month rose 12.5 per cent to 640 units compared to 569 in July 2012. New listings taken board-wide for the month dipped 3.5 per cent with 1,472 listings posted compared to 1,525 last July, and inventory was down 8.8 per cent over
MODEL YEAR CLEAROUT
this time last year – to 8,976 from 9,846. North Zone (Predator Ridge to Enderby): Overall sales for July showed a nominal decline over last year at this time – down 2.7 per cent to 144 units from 148 in 2012. Year-to-date, sales were on par with the first seven months of 2012, dipping slightly (1.5 per cent) to 868 from 881. Total residential sales for the month were down 3.8 per cent over last year to 128 units from 133. While inventory for July dropped 7.2 per cent to 2,507 from 2,702 in 2012, the 344 new listings taken for the month declined 9.2 per cent from the 2012 level (379). “Now is a great time to buy in the Okanagan-Shuswap while there is still a good selection of properties and opportunities to get into a home or recreation property at an attractive price,” said Singbeil.

A careless act of flicking a cigarette sparked a small fire in Coldstream Wednesday evening. Yet the person involved did the right thing and not only attempted to snuff out the blaze but stuck around to take responsibility. Coldstream firefighters were called to a scrub fire near Graystone Drive at approximately 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. “It was a kid who threw a cigarette into the rocky portion but it rolled into the grass and it caught,” said fire chief Shane Code. “To his credit, he actually tried to put it out and ran to a house to call 911 and he stuck around. That’s how we know the cause.” Code applauds the youth for having enough humility to take action and responsibility, something he suggests many adults wouldn’t do. “If it had got away it could have been a problem because there’s lots of homes in the area,” said Code. Lavington fire crews were also busy attending to a motor vehicle incident Tuesday evening. A car struck a power pole on Highway 6 near the Petro Canada, tying up emergency resources for a couple hours.

Glass recycling gets a real lift roger knox Morning Star Staff
Kalamalka Rotary has helped make Dan Klick’s job easier. Klick is a Venture Training employee whose job is to help sort container (but not beverage) glass, such as jam and pickle jars, for the Regional District of North Okanagan. Before Kal Rotary chipped in nearly $6,000 from its Dream Auction funds to buy a new utility trailer for Venture Training to use as they sort the glass, employees like Klick used to have put the glass in high self-dumping bins secured on the back of a flatbed trailer. “Under the old system, we used to have to put the glass on our shoulders, stand up and drop them into the bins, and it was getting so I couldn’t do that anymore,” said Klick, sorting and dumping glass into the new utility at Chaser’s Bottle Depot one morning. “Now, we just dump the glass into the back of the trailer. You better believe this new trailer has been a huge help for us.” Venture Training director of operations Ed Columbus said his employees take the lids off the containers and put the glass into the trailer, then it’s off to the Greater Vernon Landfill. “That’s where the glass is crushed and used as new cover at the landfill site,” said Columbus. The donation of the trailer came at just the right time, in early spring, right after a massive fire at the Bluewater Project recycling facility at the landfill on March 1. “It really has made things a lot better,” said Columbus of the trailer.

Backlash for $200, Alex
omehow it seems apropos that days after the movie Quiz Show was aired on TV, another real-life quiz show controversy has emerged. Quiz Show came out in 1994, directed by Robert Redford, and was based on the truelife scandal of the 1950s TV show 21, where it was proved that the show was rigged by giving contestants the answers. Specifically, the movie focused on champion Charles Van Doren, brilliantly portrayed on-screen by actor Ralph Roger Knox Fiennes. The son of a Pulitzer Prize winner, Van Doren won thousands before throwing a game to get off TV after being a champion for months. He then confessed before a committee investigating the scandal that he had been given answers to questions beforehand and that he had “participated in a deceipt.” Fast forward to today and now the longrunning show Jeopardy! is facing criticism for a controversy involving, of all things, a 12-yearold boy. Jeopardy! hosted a kids week. On the show where Thomas Hurley was a contestant, the final Jeopardy! category was the Civil War, and the question was about a document written in 1863 that Abraham Lincoln called “a fit and necessary war measure.” The correct answer is Emancipation Proclamation, which Hurley thought he had written down, as can be seen in pictures and on the video. Unfortunately for Hurley, he added an extra “T” and it came out as “EmancipTation Proclamation.” Host Alex Trebek informed Hurley and all of America that Hurley’s answer was “incorrect and spelled badly,” and judges said the answer was not acceptable.

You can see on video Hurley mouth the word “what?” and hang his head in disappointment upon learning of his spelling mistake. Hurley, who entered final Jeopardy! with $9,600, bet $3,000. He ended up in second place. To be fair, Hurley could not have caught the winner, a kid named Skyler who had an insurmountable lead with $36,600 (though Skyler did wager $30,000 and got the answer right which, as Trebek boorishly pointed out, was “spelled correctly.”). The incident has created controversy and backlash for the show and for Trebek. Many have called him arrogant and smug, saying he could have handled it better. At first, when I watched the video, I thought Trebek was pained at having to tell the kid and the audience his answer was wrong because of a spelling error. But watch the video closely and you see Trebek make an error, telling the audience Hurley added a “P” when he should have said “T.” So even he isn’t perfect. Jeopardy! producers issued a statement saying “if the show were to give credit for an incorrect response (however minor), the show would effectively penalize the other players.” Rubbish. Clearly, Hurley’s answer was not “spelled badly.” It wasn’t “Amensuhpayshun Prockluhmayshun.” It was one letter. The intent of his answer, to me anyway, was crystal clear. If Trebek had asked him the question during the show, Hurley would have said it properly. It’s only the final question where contestants have to write their answer. I didn’t know Jeopardy! was a warm-up for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Hurley, who took home $2,000 for finishing second, said it was a neat experience, that he got to go to California and ended up with some cash for his college fund. However, he has also said he feels cheated and will never watch Jeopardy! again. Can’t say I blame the kid.
When the Liberal government and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation signed a short collective agreement in the summer of 2012, nobody anticipated the same players would be back at the bargaining table 12 months later. But here we are in 2013 with the re-elected B.C. Liberal government making drastic changes to how the bargaining process will go this time around. Education minister Peter Fassbender’s bid to remove school trustees from the board of the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association could be a step in the right direction for both sides. The minister’s claim that this will allow the union to negotiate directly with the government, as opposed to an intermediary whose hands are essentially tied, should give the teachers more clout at the bargaining table. Having to go through a middleman – the BCPSEA – wasn’t working to anyone’s benefit, especially given that the government, which has the power to legislate teachers back to work or tear contracts, was using BCPSEA as a wall between them and the teachers. This shift shows the province is taking a slightly softer and more direct approach to bargaining with the teachers, and that’s a good thing. But it’s likely motivated in some ways by their unprecedented move to seek a 10-year agreement with the teachers. As it stands, there’s nothing in it for the BCTF to agree to such a lengthy contract. Ten years is an unbearably long time to be locked into a contract. If the government is trying a “we scratch your back, you scratch ours” approach to bargaining, it’s not going to work. A more open bargaining process between both sides is a step in the right direction to hopefully long-term labour peace, but 10 years is too long. Black Press

There's a better way for water
would like to comment on the letter to the editor about water diversion from the Shuswap lake. While an expensive do-able, his idea is antiquated and destructive, again, on the environment as a whole. There is a better solution and that is; (1) learn to use less water individually and as groups; ie: businesses and governmental projects, etc. For example; fewer showers and more attention to pits and parts for keeping one’s body fresh and agreeable. Installing low-usage shower heads and toilets, keeping one’s taps from dripping, regular attention to plumbing in case of leaks, covering one’s property with plants that don’t require a lot of water in order to flourish and get rid of those great, green expanses of useless lawn we’re so fond of. We could definitely grow out of that one with great advantage to our pocket books and the planet, not to mention the offensive nature of the summer-long roar of lawn mowers and weed whippers. Yes please, let us evolve past our school days “Dick & Jane” idea of what a nice yard should look like. A space crowded with blossoming plants,
cosens bay I walk almost daily through Kal Park and have for over 10 years. In a recent letter to the editor some clarifications should be made. It was stated there is a road to Cosens Bay from Corral Trail. Neither is there a road nor would one be feasible going down Sidewinder linking from Corral Trail. It is also stated road access should be developed due to emergencies in case the water is too choppy for a boat. There is already road access directly to Cosens Bay Beach that BC Parks drives down almost daily to the beach for cleanup and what not. Emergency vehicles can easily access the beach via this as well. It is connected to the Cosens Bay Rd. that connects to the Cosens Bay parking lot. It was mentioned they wanted more parking. In all my years of daily visits I have yet to have seen either Jade/Juniper Bay lot or Cosens Bay lot full. They are almost always near empty. New parking is for sure not required. I sense the letter writer just wants to drive directly to Cosens Bay and have a parking lot right there so they don’t have

bushes and trees that also bear fruit edible to the birds and beneficial insects would be a great improvement on behalf of our world. An old English garden is a great example of that type of property enhancement. (2) Make better use of the water we do use; For example: Flush toilets. They are the greatest wasters of fresh water on the planet. There are toilets already available that are not expensive and quite efficient with their water usage. While they are not the very best
solution out there, they are an improvement over the average household’s ever flushing system now in use. However, a better toilet to replace the ones we now use is the electric dry flush toilet. Water usage there is almost non-existent and their upkeep is very simple. The user must simply empty a holding tray of dried matter on occasion which is easily tossed into the garbage or preferably, tossed onto the compost pile where it will be recycled

The premiers are united in their opposition to the federal Conservative’s new funding scheme. Large corporations will be the greatest beneficiary because their current training programs will receive government subsides. Small businesses will benefit the least. Is this another example of how Harper repays large corporations for making campaign contributions to his party? If Stephen Harper was a professional hockey player the consequences of his selfindulgent arrogance would be a lesson on how to ‘ride the bench’. After the next election he shouldn’t be surprised if he finds himself sitting on one of the benches reserved for parliament’s opposition parties. lloyd atkins

Industrious individuals could set up an addendum to the garbage disposal industry and have a trap-line of squeamish customers who don’t want to look after their own little sewage traps under the toilets. He/she could combine it with a composting production and become wealthy on the public’s delicate sensibilities. On behalf of these improvements, the government, with the support of we, the people, could offer a financial incentive that could be generous enough to entice the people to change over. I’m up for it. No problem. It’s a once-only, therefore low over-all expense to the public purse and an excellent solution to our present wastage and would have far-reaching benefits to our world. Would someone in the governing sector please clasp this line of reasoning to your bosom and go with it? Please? Maybe I’ll join Avaaz and make it a public project. The rest of the world might join us. Maybe even the Green Party would make it one of their pets. Yes!

Park pioneer honoured Morning Star Staff
The Village of Lumby has paid tribute to a longtime resident. The sign recently installed on a neighborhood park on Saddleview Avenue recognizes long time citizen George Herman Fisher, an original member of the Lumby Community Club, a club that looked after the town in lieu of a civic government. The park, originally developed by the Lumby Lions Club, had suggested that it be named after Mr. Fisher, who passed away on Nov. 17, 1980. “He was a chartered member of the club since

of secondary suites is just one of the topics being debated. “This whole idea is just to further conversation on this topic. Whether it be for family members or whether it be in certain
areas,” said Mayor Jim Garlick. Secondary suites are currently only permitted in singledetached dwellings within the Agriculture Land Reserve. But as the district looks at
increasing density to accommodate population growth, suites are being considered in residential areas. The public can weigh in on this, and the other OCP topics, at ocp.districtofcoldstream.ca “I support the approval of secondary suites as a way of supporting affordable housing costs for homeowners, supporting affordable senior housing options or low-income housing,” reads one comment from Sandie. “This also provides an option for meeting higher density housing options rather than allowing apartments or increasing the townhouses.” The draft OCP plan is currently being worked on and the public will have an opportunity to review the draft plan in the fall.

The Landing’s Very Own...
News t’s been a whirlwind of activity the past few months. After wrapping up a busy provincial election campaign, we launched right into a five-week summer legislative session in Victoria. For new MLAs like myself, it’s been a crash course in how government gets the people’s work done! It’s been a tremendous learning opportunity, as we worked through our fiscallyresponsible budget and set the direction of government. We’re going to continue our focus on growing the economy and creating jobs to Greg Kyllo benefit B.C. families. That’s why I was thrilled to be named parliamentary secretary for the B.C. Jobs Plan to the minister of jobs, tourism and skills training. My background in business lends itself well to this file, and I’m looking forward to the challenge it presents. Rising in the House to speak for the first time was quite the experience. There were a few jitters,
but mostly I was just proud to be able to stand up and bring a taste of the Shuswap to Victoria. I delivered a statement on the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival, noting its contributions to our community and our local economy. Locally, I was pleased to be able to announce some great initiatives to benefit the Shuswap area. The government awarded more than $54,000 in community gaming grants to the Bill Miner Society for Cultural Advancement in Armstrong, the Shuswap Pony Club in Sorrento, the Larch Hills Nordic Society in Salmon Arm, and Canada Day festivities in Blind Bay. Local projects throughout the Shuswap also benefitted from nearly $777,000 from the government’s Strategic Community Investment Fund, which helps municipalities with day-to-day operations and infrastructure needs. My constituency office is still being set up, but in the meantime I encourage you to email me with any suggestions or concerns at Greg.Kyllo.MLA@ leg.bc.ca. Enjoy the summer. Greg Kyllo is the MLA for the Shuswap constituency.
Responsible dog owners rewarded Morning Star Staff
There are rewards in store for dog owners in the Central Okanagan that have licensed their pet. Owners with a valid licensed dog in Lake Country and the Fintry area south will be automatically enrolled in the new ‘My Dog Matters’ Responsible Dog Owner Rewards program. Once you receive your special ‘My Dog Matters’ rewards card in the mail, you can start using it to receive various discounts and benefits offered by participating businesses. The variety of businesses and links to their rewards can be found on the MyDogMatters.ca website. That’s also where you’ll find a link to licence information for dog owners that haven’t yet purchased a dog tag. New businesses that wish to take part in the program will continually be added.
“The first principle of being a responsible dog owner in the Central Okanagan is licensing your pet,” said Bruce Smith, communications officer. “We believe that most dog owners in our region are responsible and don’t require much interaction with our Dog Service staff. Since these dog owners are doing the right thing and following our bylaw requirement for purchasing a licence and renewing it each year, they will have an opportunity to receive rewards and get something back from the businesses participating in the program.” Over the course of a year, these benefits can add up to savings for a dog owner, compared with the $20 fee to licence a spayed or neutered dog and $60 if the dog hasn’t been fixed. “Besides the benefits of ‘My Dog Matters,’ licensing your dog can be your dog’s ticket home in

the event that it gets away,” said Smith. “If your licensed dog is found or reported to Dog Service staff at the Weddell Place pound, they may be able to facilitate a reunion without you having to make a trip to the facility.” As well as providing funds for the Dog Service and operation of the pound, license fees contribute to the $60,000 in funding provided by the Regional District to the Kelowna branch of the BC SPCA for its spay/neuter and public education programs. Smith reminds Central Okanagan dog owners that starting in January 2014, the district will follow zero tolerance for any dog found without a licence. “We’re currently reviewing and revising our dog bylaw and one of the changes that will be recommended to the Regional Board will be increased fines for unlicensed dogs.”

Watch for your Recreation Services Fall Leisure Guide Delivered in The Morning Star on Sunday, August 11, 2013
Excelling in a sport that is more than just cute little outfits and pom-poms, Fulton’s cheerleading team has quite literally risen to the top. It all started with student Georgia Wilson, a former England cheer team student, who brought the idea to the school in 2009. In Grade 8 at the time (now going into Grade 12), Wilson pitched the idea of a cheerleading team to principal Malcolm Reid. “Mr. Reid said yes, thinking we would just ‘woo woo raa raa’ at football games,” recalls Fallon Larter, Fulton Maroon cheerleading coach. In between vigorous practices they did just that for the first few years. But as their skill developed and the team strengthened, this past year’s team took their routine to the big league. “This has been our first year competing,” said Larter, as the currently all-girls team took part in the Okanagan’s first cheerleading competition in May. “The girls did exceptionally well for their first competition,” said Larter. They brought home a third place trophy in their division, a second for their sideline routine (a collaboration of their three best football cheers) and Wilson secured first in the jump competition while Cassidy Erickson earned second. But perhaps one of the proudest honours the girls earned was an unexpected trophy. “When we registered for this competition we found out that there was going to be a school spirit award being given out; there would be secret

judges looking for the team with the best spirit,” said Larter. With different teams going around handing out candies, gift boxes and such the Maroons figured they had no chance of winning. Much to their surprise, the girls actually earned the award. “We were told that our team won this award because throughout the day, all of the secret judges saw us sticking together, supporting each other and other teams, not looking at everyone as competition,” beams Larter. It’s that aspect of the team that Larter loves most. “Being on a cheerleading team is so different from being a part of anything else,” said Larter. “Being on the cheer team not only gives the girls a place for physical activity or learning about leadership and representing their school with pride; it also gives them a place to make friends, to be a part of a large and always growing Fulton family.” This particular family started in its first year with more than 40 girls eager to be a part of. But discovering just how difficult the sport is – risky throws, being able to trust someone to catch you after you’re thrown 15 feet in the air – the family quickly shrunk. “When things got serious, it wasn’t just ‘ra ra ra’ for football and basketball, just about everyone quit. I was left with a handful of very dedicated and hardworking girls,” said Larter. The small team continued for two years (which included a few boys at the time), and then last year 56 tried out – 23 made the cut. During that time, Larter faced some of her own challenges. “A lot of my mentors and other coaches tell me very often that I am at a disadvantage, being so close in age with the girls, that ‘they won’t respect you because you’re one of their peers,’” said Larter, who joined the team in 2009, has since graduated and is now a certified cheerleading coach. “I disagree. My girls respect me because they love me and not because they’re scared of me. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Cheer team breaks stigma Continued from A16 Another challenge Larter and the team have faced is the stereotype that cheerleading is not a sport. “Holding this team together has not been easy. Cheerleading isn’t big in Canada, let alone in Vernon. A lot of people don’t consider cheerleading a sport.” But the team’s dedication and skill confirms that there is more to cheering than many think. There are also funding challenges with cheering. Because cheerleading isn’t recognized as a sport team, they receive no funding from the school board. That leaves uniforms, shoes, travel, competition fees and safety gear (including mats which cost upwards of $1,600), up to them. “We need seven of them. We were lucky to get one this past year paid for by Mr. Reid. But it’s not enough.” Despite all the challenges they face, the team continues to rise above. “We don’t complain, because we love the sport. We love what we do.” In fact, Larter loves coaching the sport so much that she is hosting a cheerleading camp for ages five to 18 this summer. Athletes will learn the basics in motions, dance, jumps, cheers and stunting (lifting people). There will be a cheer-themed craft for kids ages five to seven. The camp takes place at Fulton secondary from Aug. 12 to 16. Register by Aug. 10 by calling 250-306-6279

Que., who won titles in 2010 and ‘11. “The golf course should prove to be an excellent test for Canada’s top senior women’s talent and we’re looking forward to crowning a new champion on Aug. 22,” said tournament director Mary Beth McKenna, of Golf Canada. Hayward captured her third Investors Group Ontario Senior Women’s Amateur title last Thursday by a phenomenal 15-stroke margin at Stratford Country Club. Hayward, the 2010 and 2012 champion, went wire-to-wire across 54 holes of competition, dominating the field of Ontario’s
best female amateurs age 50 and over. She opened with the low round of the tournament, a four-under 68 before following up with a 70 and 71 for a 7-under 209. “The first day was absolutely awesome,” Hayward told Golf Ontario, of her birdiefilled 68. “I think I miss-hit only one shot all day. It was probably closest to the most perfect round I’ve ever had.” Hayward will also defend her interprovincial team title at Spallumcheen with Team Ontario. Hayward and returnee Ivy Steinburg of Stouffville will be joined by Andrea Blackwell of Kingston.

Mark Ferner is back for another round with the Kamloops Blazers. The Western Hockey League franchise announced Wednesday it has signed the 47-yearold as an associate to head coach Dave Hunchak for the coming season. Having grown up in Kamloops and spending his junior career with the Jr. Oilers/Blazers, Ferner is overly familiar with the organization. He was also head coach there between 2004-06, but was fired after compiling a 35-41-6-2 record. Ferner was unavailable for comment. Following his stint with the Blazers, Ferner went on to achieve Junior A glory with the Vipers. Under his guidance, the Snakes posted a 165-51-24 record over four seasons, winning three consecutive Fred Page Cup championships and two consecutive RBC Cup national titles in 2009 and 2010. The Vipers were RBC runners-up Mark Ferner in 2011. Most recently, Ferner was head coach of the WHL Everett Silvertips for the last two seasons. He was fired in January. “Mark has continued to evolve and improve as a coach over the past 10 years,” said Blazers’ GM Craig Bonner, in a team press release. “His hockey resume is very impressive. He has had tremendous success as a head coach in Junior A and we believe he will complement our coaching staff well.” Added Hunchak: “We are excited to have Mark join our coaching staff. He is a great addition to what we already have in place.” After graduating from the Blazers’ program in 1985, Ferner played 16 pro seasons all over North America, and in Europe. He suited up for 91 NHL games split between the Buffalo Sabres, Washington Capitals, Anaheim Mighty Ducks and Detroit Red Wings. Ferner was selected in the 10th round (194th overall) by Buffalo in the 1983 draft. His son, Mackenzie, has signed to play next season with the West Kelowna Warriors. Mackenzie, a 1995-born d-man, was an eighth-round pick by the Blazers in the 2010 Bantam draft, but is no longer is on their protected list. He played last season with the North Okanagan Knights in Armstrong.

Ogopogos brush back Brisbane crew Morning Star Staff
The Westlake Tire/Arrowhead Electric Ogopogos toppled Queensland Lion Masters of Brisbane 2-1 in men’s soccer medal-round action Thursday at the World Masters Games in Torino, Italy. The Ogopogos, who trailed 1-0 in the fifth minute, came out re-charged at the beginning of the second half, taking away Australia’s passing game, winning several 50/50 balls and getting more shots to the net. Striker Mark Wasylyk beat the keeper at the corner of the net and as he shot at the open corner, pulled his hamstring and unfortunately hit the side of the net with the ball. The Ogopogos levelled the score on a beautiful corner by midfielder Jim Sparrow. Guest player Simon Pendlebury of Tasmania, from central defence, courageously went up the flank, cutting towards the net and pulling the Aussie defence and keeper out of position. He then put the ball in front of the net and in the ensuing chaos, the ball deflected off an Australian player and in for the winner. Wanting to change things up a bit Wednesday, they chose to wear their lime green uniforms provided by Arrowhead and beat Edmonton Strykers 1-0. Pendlebury kicked a long drive into the 18 to Wasylyk, who niftily redirected through the defence to Gary Beckett, who one-timed the winner. The Ogopogos dominated most of their Tuesday game but fell 2-1 to Calgary FC. Sparrow scored again off a corner. Meanwhile, the Vernon Controllers lost 1-0 to Hi Cal United, a blend of California and Hawaiian players, in their third women’s 40+ soccer match, Tuesday, at the Masters Games. United connected on a rush down the right side with a shot finding top corner with keeper Michelle Embleton having no chance. It was a hard-fought game with Michele Wernicke, Jody Pope, Brandi Hunter and Val Percy rock-solid and midfielders Leslie Epp and Jodi Hawthorne stellar in the loss.
In Wednesday play, the Controllers shut down Southern California 2-0 with Embleton having very little action. Angela Durfeld scored in the opening minute after feeds from Jacquie Nuyens and Michelle Mercer. Minutes later, Nuyens buried a rebound off a shot from Jenny Currie after a through ball from Krista Backer. Mercer almost made it 3-0 as her one-time volley grazed the outside of the post. The Controllers move on to the quarterfinals. The North Okanagan United over 40s tied Hi Cal United 1-1 and lost 4-1 to the Fraser Valley Storm. Kim Reid converted a Federica Tamaglini corner for NOU’s goal in the draw Tuesday. Reid also scored in Wednesday’s loss, off a Tamaglini throw in. NOU finished third in their pool and had another game Thursday. Vernon’s John Neilson, coach of a Calgary women’s volleyball entry, earned a gold medal as the group of former national teamers iced the Ukraine. In North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Masters Division play, Goplen’s Drillers shut down host Shuswap Merlot 3-0 Tuesday night. Goals came late in the first half with newcomer Melissa Hensen involving herself in a scramble, taking the ball off the keeper and passing to Nancy Nickoli, who scored from a sharp angle. With a minute left in the half, Nickoli sent a through ball to forward Geri O’Brien, who beat a defender and the keeper to put the Drillers up 2-0. Barb Levesque, who ran tirelessly the whole game in stopper, sent a through ball to Michelle Loxam. Loxam then laid it back to O’Brien, who put a long, high shot over the keeper’s outstretched arms. Shawn Nickoli posted her second shutout of the season as the Drillers improved to 4-10-5. The Little Tex Outlaws re-configured their roster due to a multitude of injuries and player losses and their hard work paid off with a 3-1 win over Dr. Lee Dental in Division 1 play Tuesday night at sweltering Marshall Field #5.

Surveyors unlock Turn-Key Morning Star Staff
Monashee Surveying FC surprised Turn-Key Controls 3-0 in North Okanagan Soccer League action Wednesday night at Marshall Field #2. The Surveyors (6-10-1) put the pressure on early and rolled through the match with Travis Baerg opening the scoring early on a great passing play. Turn-Key (10-6) had a chance to level the game but superhero James Inglis flew across the net to block the shot with a big hand. The referee ruled the second shot to be offside. Wily veteran Glenn Allen had a chance to double the lead but missed a sitter on the six. On the next play, Darren Nobrega slips a ball over top to a running Allen, who beat everyone and calmly slipped it short side for a 2-0 lead. Turn-Key tried to counter but smooth defending by Nathan Martial and John Duc kept them limited. Turn-Key came out energized for the second half and recorded some corners and dangerous free kicks but Monashee calmly knocked the ball around and controlled the rest of the half The hardest-working player on the field – Zach Sharp – created the final goal. Sharp pressured the last defender to give up the ball in the kill zone and then unselfishly fed Baerg for the clincher. Okanagan Spirits Man of the Match was the high-flying Inglis, who pocketed his second shutout of the season. Nation of Domination Eagle Homes of Salmon Arm iced Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels FC 2-0 at Marshall #5. Despite having much of the possession, the
Camels (8-7-2) could not break through NOD’s packed defence. NOD (10-3-3) utilized their speedsters to capitalize on an errant back pass and a waved off offside. The Camels were undeterred and continued pressing hard but ran out of time. Albert Goldnik made some clutch saves taking a turn in goal. Nathan Whitling, Keefery Joyce and Mike Barrajon had strong games. The Rise Golf Club Man of the Match went to Nick Pantaleo for tireless work at the back. Second-place North Enderby Timber shut out last-place Salmon Arm Outlaws 6-0 at Marshall #4. The timber controlled the entire game, led by a strong back line of Jesse Knight, Scott Wallace, Greg Poggemoeller and Andrew Stein. Andy and brother Danny Stein shared the Aclis Highlight of the Night after Andy danced around two defenders on the wing and placed a perfect cross to Danny, who hammered the ball to the back of the net with a leaping volley. Adam Marwood earned the one-save shutout while healing his hamstring injury. NET improved to 12-4-1, while the Outlaws fell to 0-16. Meanwhile, Penticton United ambushed Bosman Accounting of Vernon 7-1 in a Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ League make-up game Wednesday night at Marshall Field #1. Rob Gunning (3), Kevin Kothlow (2), Zeke Pescada and Terry Grady handled the offence for second-place Penticton (12-3). Jenne Huberts hammered in a header off a Gerry Geelkerken corner for the accountants (0-14-1).

Liam Hennig, 14, keeps smiling despite a fall, while Aaron Botterill, 14, gets down low to retrieve a ball in the Vernon Royals Christian School Volleyball Camp.
A Royal Camp
Vernon’s Aaron Heidt faced death and won last weekend in Grand Cache, Alta. Heidt claimed the North Face Canadian Death Race, completing the 125-kilometre offroad ulta course in 12 hours, 31 minutes and 44 seconds. Heidt, who competed in the men’s 30-39 division, was more than an hour ahead of runnerup Jeff Hunter of Prince George (13:35:25). Edmonton’s Joe Huising was third in 13:46:37. Heidt won the North Face Dirty Feet half marathon earlier this year in Kamloops. Caroline McIlroy of St. Phillip’s, Nfld. was the top female in 17:08:15, good enough for 20th overall. Vernon’s Krys Pick ruled the women’s 30-39 division, finishing in 19:44:09, while Vernon’s Michael Stoll (18:40:04) ranked seventh in the men’s 40-49 class. The Death Race course begins and ends on a 4,200-foot plateau, passes over three mountain summits and includes 17,000 feet of elevation change and a major river crossing. Meanwhile, Vernon’s Simon Craig has qualified for the Ironman World Championships, Oct. 12, in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Craig, who recently celebrated the birth of his first child, son Kai, overcame a challenging swim to finish 69th overall, and ninth in the men’s 45-49 class at Ironman Lake Placid in New York. Craig, 44, who lists himself as an airline pilot in his Ironman bio, was 98th in his division after the 2.4-mile swim (1:13:50), but relied on his years as a pro cyclist in Europe to sit 13th heading onto the run course. He posted a 3:25:15 marathon time to finish in 10:03:43.

Brittany Davison worked alongside Brianna Ostafie and Toren Huntley to set up two beautiful goals by Steph Conti. Katelyn Dyck and Christine Fraser solidified the back line, while Anita Rea and Jasmine Whitling tidied up the midfield using solid ball control and distribution. With 20 minutes left in a physical second half, Fahn Hastie received a strategic pass from Lisa Stewart. Hastie beat two defenders and tucked a hard leftfooted shot top cheese. Kim Teichman replied late for the regular-season champion Floss crew (13-3-1). Little Tex is 8-4-5. The AF Blazers defeated Wrap Zone 5-1 in other Division 1 play at Marshall #4. Ali Clarke opened the scoring with her 12th of the season, Hailey Woon earning the assist. Wrap Zone responded five minutes later. With 10 minutes remaining in the half, Woon knocked in a feed from Janna Cummings to regain the Blazer lead. With the wind in their favour, the Blazers dominated the second half and Woon put the Blazers up 3-1 before returning veteran Krista Ference scored off a nifty curving shot. Shelby Price rounded out the scoring with her third of the season just skimming in below the crossbar. Sierra Hatten, who made a guest appearance to join her aunts Jenny and Katie on the pitch, was outstanding on defence along with Amber Maltman, Amanda Swales and Jessica Brewis. Newcomer Brittany Altwasser and Jenny Hatten were solid in the midfield, while Shantell Hayhurst put through some quality crosses to help out the Blazer offence.

Hayward became the first Canadian to win the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur in 2005. “I’m just really happy to be scoring again, I haven’t scored that well the last couple of years so I’ve been working on playing more and just scoring – so it’s nice to see it pay off.” Team B.C. includes Lynda Palahniuk of Kelowna, former Vernonite Jackie Little, now of Port Alberni, and Karen Pultz of Surrey.

Activity Horoscope By Bernice Bede OsOl
Don’t be hesitant to elevate your sights in the year ahead, especially where you work or career goals are concerned. Whether you realize it or not, you’re in an excellent achievement cycle where much can be accomplished. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your prospects for material acquisition look to be especially encouraging, especially in situations where you are doing business with someone of the opposite gender.
how to play: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 111222

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It could be a mistake to delegate a critical assignment to someone who has yet to be tested. If you can’t give the job to anyone else, you’d be better off doing it yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you feel compelled to do something for another without any thought of what’s in it for you, it could turn out to be a beautiful experience. Follow your instincts. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Go out of your way to express your gratitude to someone has been quite kind to you lately. Everyone likes to know that he or she is appreciated. It’ll mean a lot. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Situations that have strong elements of friendly competition are always your cup of tea, and today could offer you just such an arrangement. Win or lose, do it with grace, and everyone benefits. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don’t get upset if your ears start burning, because it’s likely that if you could hear all the things being said about you, it would make you happy, not upset. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you haven’t been as considerate as you should be toward a loved one lately, go out of your way to make amends. Hugs and kisses have a magic that works every time. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Make your needs and wants secondary to those of your special someone, especially if the
relationship has gotten a bit stale lately. It’s a great way to get it stirred up again. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You should take advantage of today’s trends, which will have an especially good effect on your work situation. Things won’t just happen, however; you’ll need to go after what you want.
I would like to thank all my customers for helping make my move to Vernon Dodge a successful one! It is great to be a part of the number one store and sales team in the North Okanagan! I would love the opportunity to show you why Dodge has taken Lorne Pearson over the number one spot as Canada’s top selling brand. I value your business and would like to share with you, your family and friends just why so many Canadians have made the switch to this exciting and affordable brand. And most of alI, I hope everyone has a safe and happy summer!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) If you’re an unattached Taurus who would like to find a special someone, it might be a better-thanaverage day in terms of meeting promising new prospects. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) There’s a good chance that you’ll have a knack for finalizing contentious matters to the satisfaction of everyone. Speak up to get your ideas across. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Be sure to compliment someone who deserves praise for a job well done. As long as you’re sincere, it will be far more important to that person than you might realize.
Hormones Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes, weight gain, mood swings and low energy. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment uses bio-identical, plant based hormones that exactly duplicate hormones your body produces.

Marijuana possession cases still account for 60 per cent of drug violation reports to police in B.C., but the number of cases declined 10 per cent in 2012, according to new figures from Statistics Canada. There were 25,432 police-reported incidents of drug offences in B.C. last year, a 7.4 per cent decline from 2011. Marijuana trafficking cases declined more than 20 per cent to 1,006 incidents, and importation and exportation of marijuana declined by 40 per cent. Marijuana growing cases declined 4.6 per cent, following a 28.6 per cent drop in 2011. Heroin possession cases jumped more than 30 per cent to 500, and heroin trafficking cases rose 37 per cent to 224 incidents in 2012. There were 653 reported cases of possession of methamphetamine (crystal meth), a 20 per cent increase over 2011, and 110 per cent more than 2009. The decline in B.C. marijuana cases comes as licensed medical marijuana production increases across North America. Colorado and Washington state voted to legalize sales to adults last year. In July, Elections BC gave approval in principle for a petition drive aimed at decriminalizing marijuana possession in B.C. Marijuana activist Dana Larsen has formed a group called Sensible B.C., aimed at forcing a change to B.C. law that would prevent police resources from being used against simple possession of marijuana. Sensible B.C. is using the same voter initiative system that forced the repeal of the harmonized sales tax in B.C. The group will have 90 days starting Sept. 9 to collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered provincial voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts. If that target is met, a province-wide vote would be held on the proposed law. Individuals and groups have until Aug. 12 to register with Elections BC to oppose the initiative by advertising and collecting signatures against the initiative.

A glass of wine at the spa? A craft beer at the farmer’s market? Can B.C. survive the next wave of modernization of its archaic liquor laws? These suggestions are part of a review of liquor policy promised by the B.C. government in its February throne speech and rolled out Wednesday. Richmond MLA John Yap has been assigned to examine regulations that unnecessarily restrict business, making recommendations to the provincial cabinet by November. One proposal is allowing under-aged children to have lunch at a pub with their parents during the day, as they can do in a licensed restaurant. As well as considering licences for farm markets and spas, the review is to look at why it takes up to a year to issue a liquor licence to a business. Letters are going out to 10,000 licence holders and rural liquor agency stores looking for feedback, and a website for public comments is to be added in September. Don’t expect a price break, however. The terms of the review include ensuring that the $1 billion annual government revenue from liquor sales and sales tax is maintained or increased. The review will not look at privatization of liquor distribution, a controversial suggestion the government backed away from last year. Recent reforms in B.C. have included allowing people to bring their own wine to a restaurant, and removing restrictions on buying wine from another province for personal use. B.C. has yet to convince Ontario and other provinces to lift their protectionist wine rules. On the enforcement side, last year B.C. increased its fine to $575 for bootlegging liquor to people under 19. Two years ago, legislation allowed liquor inspectors to employ minors to test liquor outlets’ willingness to check identification and refuse service. A University of Victoria study released Wednesday called for B.C. to impose a minimum drink price of $1.50 on licensed establishments and charge higher prices for drinks with more alcohol, to discourage over-consumption.

Gallery promises a riotous good time Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Public Art Gallery is gearing up for its fifth annual alternative arts event: Riot on the Roof. On Aug. 24, Riot will transform the Vernon Parkade into a vibrant sphere of creativity by showcasing the artistic talents of emerging artists from the Okanagan and surrounding areas. “Each summer our youth ambassadors bring new energy to the event, new perspectives, and a new vision, and because of this Riot on the Roof has become a dynamic event including everything from live music to spoken word poetry. Jamie and Robert (2013 youth ambassadors) have been working tirelessly to recruit new artists and provide audiences with a unique Riot experience,” said Dauna Kennedy Grant, executive director. Three impressive groups have been scheduled to appear, providing a good example of the diversity at this event. Mousai Entertainment, based out of Vancouver and Calgary, is a collaboration of 10 diverse performers, specializing in many forms of dance and body movement including contemporary, jazz, ballet, contact dance, flamenco, and belly dance. In addition, some of the members have training in partner acrobatics, contortion, aerial ribbon, fire eating, and prop manipulation. The team incorporates elaborate, creative character roles and costuming into their shows. While working with venues, lighting, decor, and visual experts, Mousai will become part of the atmosphere at Riot. On the main stage, guests will hear The Dragstrip Devils, a rockabilly/psycho-billy trio from Vernon. Band members love fast cars, hot licks and pin-up chicks! Influenced by Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and Johnny Burnett with a twist, their songs will make you want to rip it up and hit that dance floor with your baby. This three-piece band will have you shakin’ all over! Nathan Hare has been perfecting the balancing act of performance poetry. Immersed in the written word yet drawn towards the stage, Hare has performed more than 100

Colin James returns for intimate show in Vernon Morning Star Staff
Legendary Canadian bluesman Colin James brings along his acoustic guitar to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Oct. 16.
This October, Colin James will begin a Western Canadian tour that will feature stops in the B.C. Interior, including the Vernon Performing Arts Centre, Oct. 16. For fans, the tour will be like seeing and hearing James for the first time. The Up Close and Personal: An Acoustic Tour will feature James performing his hits and blues standards in an intimate acoustic setting, with special guest, master guitarist Chris Caddell. One fan said, “It will be like sitting in your living room, but with Colin James and Chris Caddell. How great would that be?” From the small city of Belleville on Lake Ontario, Caddell is said to play with the southern vibe and bluesy reverence of a Stevie Ray Vaughan or Doyle Bramhall II.

His raw soulful voice and emotive guitar skills were an instant hit when as a teen he made the big move to Toronto. Within no time, his versatility was sought by various acts. He landed a lengthy gig touring with platinum-selling pop singer Fefe Dobson and also played with more rockdriven artists like Thornley, Rex Goudie and James. Caddell and his band, The Wreckage, opened for James at Toronto’s Massey Hall after their debut recording in 2008, and the two guitarists have continued to collaborate, resulting in this acoustic tour. Regina-born James has come a long way since his self-titled debut album in 1988. Since that time he has amassed numerous awards and a string of instantly identifiable hits which have propelled him to “icon” status in Canada. Songs like Man’s Gotta be a Stone, I

The musical genres James so nicely spans includes blues, rock, R’n’B, jump blues, swing revival, and blues-rock, which have garnered him six Juno awards, 17 Maple Blues Awards, and several of his albums have reached gold and platinum status.

luesman Buddy Guy’s latest double disc release Rhythm and Blues isn’t really that, but the venerable guitarist/singer wails on blues anyway. As long as there’s a set of songs that he can sink his voice and fingers into, then Guy will bring electricity. The 77-year-old’s Dean Gordon-Smith performances on Rhythm and Blues have edge; his vocals are potent and soulful, and his guitar work has an elemental squawk that’s part conversation and part banshee howl — it takes on another life

as Guy dims the volume. If anything, age has added more presence to his music – the past is there but it’s a bonus and not a burden. The songs aren’t very notable in content but their humour and insight give Guy the platform in which to exorcise his considerable interpretive powers (I Go By Feel, Meet Me in Chicago). There are collaborations here, but they’re uneven. Beth Hart matches Guy’s charisma with her raw reading of What You Gonna Do About Me, and Keith Urban and Guy have a sweet duet on One Day Away, one of the few sensitive tracks here. Kid Rock doesn’t sound like an American Badass on Messin’ With the Kid; more like a snot-nosed brat trying to sound heavy. Ah well...there’s Steven Tyler with some Aerosmith buddies on the hyper Evil Twin, sounding like Steven Tyler. But
Guy never lets his guard down; he melts the fretboard all over R&B. A few songs take a left turn away from the format and jump out, leaving an impression that more is needed. These are Devil’s Daughter; Whiskey Ghost, and All That Makes Me Happy is the Blues. The sound of these is swampy and reverb-drenched and the mood is minorkey and eerie. In a weird turnabout, these tracks have a lingering deep feeling of blues, while the traditionally-structured blues songs on the rest of the album sound like party music in contrast. So yeah, more swamp music would be cool... But Guy often rides the edge of abandon when performing, and his boldness sometimes takes him past the outskirts. It’s this restless spirit that keeps him and his sound in their own time zone, so play on!

uite apart from the fact that this is a fun movie to watch, Hugh Jackman is not too shabby and the 3D version is great. Is anyone out there, but me, wondering about the latest spate of movies related to comic book or old radio shows? So far we’ve seen Batman, Superman, Spiderman, The Lone Ranger and then, of course, there’s the zombie films. Is it that we baby boomers are so rooted in the past that we are hard-pressed to find something new? Having that little rant out of my system, The Wolverine is an action-packed (great chase on the train scene) couple of hours, as Logan/Wolverine is called to Japan to say farewell to an old friend, Shingen Yashida (Hiroyuki Sanada), who is dying — and things go downhill from there. Again, violence and incredible stunts are a large part of this film. The acting is so-so, but what do we want from a half man/half wolf? Logan’s lukewarm scenes with his supposed love interest, Marika (Tao Okamoto), are a bit hard to take, but
Marvel/20th Century Fox
Hugh Jackman bulks up to play the indestructible X-Men character in The Wolverine. director James Mangold redeems himself with the action scenes, which are plentiful. Jackman, who has played Logan/ Wolverine six times, is a big fan of the Wolverine comic (1982), particularly the Japanese saga. Interestingly, this is the first time Wolverine is in a movie without X-Men in the title. To prepare for the role, Jackman worked out three hours a day, ate 6,000 calories daily and sought advice on bulking up from Dwayne Johnson, who may be the king of bulking up. As movies go, this is fast-paced and
suspenseful but don’t go expecting to see great acting. Stay for the credits and see what’s in store for X-Men. By the way, this is not the last we’ll see of the Wolverine, he’s scheduled to come back again. I give The Wolverine three reels for this one, but the chase scenes are awesome. The film is currently showing at The Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon. — Susan Steen is a freelance movie reviewer based out of Kelowna, whose column normally appears in the Kelowna Capital News.

Alexa Hildebrandt is the winner this year of the Elizabeth Scott Vocal Choral Bursary (ESVCB) and she has an impressive list of credits for one who has just completed her first two years of post secondary education. Since a young age she has sung in school and church choirs and made the most of the teaching offered by a variety of mentors including Sandra Babbel in the Okanagan. Those
who attended the 2012 Okanagan Symphony Christmas Reflections Concert heard her as the soprano performer. Just a few weeks ago she and Siobhan Raupach, a previous ESVCB winner, and Haley Porter presented a very fine concert at Emmanuel Baptist Church. All three young sopranos are in the Opera Kelowna group and will be singing in their concert Aug. 17 in Kelowna. Alexa has also twice been the Okanagan represen-

tative at the Kiwanis Provincial Festival and on the second occasion was runner up. She gives her parents credit for instilling in her a love of classical music. This enterprising young singer chose to spend her first two years of post-secondary education at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and in September will
be transferring to the University of Manitoba to complete her bachelor’s degree in music, focusing on performance. She also won admission to UBC’s opera program. She hopes to follow a bachelor’s degree with a master’s leading to a career of performing and teaching. She wishes to be able to instill in her students the love of music and performance that has been one of the focal points of her own life. The popularity of opera has grown over the last few years as evidenced by the success of the Opera Live in HD performances from the Met. It is a very difficult and rigorous vocal form and demands a facility
in languages other than English to add to the challenges. It is interesting that all but one of the five individuals who have won the ESVCB have chosen opera as their main focus. It is a point of pride for Okanagan voice teachers that these talented young singers have all received the foundation education that has enabled them to compete very successfully in the academic musical world in centres from New York, to Montreal, to Victoria and Vancouver to Seattle and now Manitoba. No doubt there will be many more times of pride in their accomplishments as the years go by. Watch for their names in the news.

Pirate Paks benefit kids Morning Star Staff
Canada’s longest-running restaurant chain is bringing back special edition Adult Pirate Paks on Wednesday, giving the young-at-heart a chance to feel like a kid again – all while helping a worthy cause. In honour of young mateys who need help the most, White Spot will celebrate its sixth annual Pirate Pak Day by donating $2 from each Kids and Adult Pirate Pak sold on Wednesday, August 14 to Zajac Ranch for Children. Zajac Ranch is an established B.C. based charity that provides children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable summer camp experience. “Our popular Pirate Pak has been sailing into happy childhood memories for decades,” said White Spot president Warren Erhart. “Pirate Pak Day is the perfect chance to revisit those memories while
supporting a good cause. “The entire team at White Spot is excited to be partnering with Zajac Ranch for the sixth year in a row, and proud to make a difference in the lives of kids facing challenges.” Since 2008, White Spot has raised $202,470 for Zajac Ranch, providing more than 100 children and young adults the opportunity to create summertime memories and empower them to experience traditional camp activities – an opportunity that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. From Aug. 19 to 23, Zajac Ranch will host White Spot Week, where kids will meet new friends and participate in outdoor sports, such as kayaking and horseback riding. “Each year, we are grateful for White Spot’s Pirate Pak Day fundraiser, which provides a life-changing summer camp experience for special needs kids in B.C.,” said Mel Zajac, founder of Zajac Ranch for Children.

Ruth leaves a legacy of literacy Morning Star Staff
For close to 20 years, countless children at Mission Hill elementary school have improved their reading skills thanks to the dedication of Ruth Kovacs. Starting in 1996, Kovacs was supporter, coordinator and tutor for the One to One Children’s Literacy Program at the school. Kovacs passed away last year, but her legacy lives on, through the dedication of Ruth’s Reading Room at Mission Hill and the Ruth Kovacs Literary Award. “Last fall, in failing health, Ruth told me she had a wish: to have a final visit to her One to One room,” said Debbie Schiller, executive director of the Junction Literacy Centre, which runs the One to One program. “That wish turned into a tea attended by many volunteer tutors, teachers and other admirers. “During the tea, the Mission Hill school community announced that the One to One Room would in the future always be known as Ruth’s Reading Room.” That same day, the literacy society presented Kovacs with the first Ruth Kovacs Literacy Award, to honour her dedication to children and the One to One program;
Debbie Schiller, executive director of The Junction Literacy Centre, and Zoli Kovacs look through some of the books that were purchased with $500 that was received in memory of Kovacs’ wife, Ruth, for the One to One Children’s Literacy Program . it will be an annual award that bears her name. Criteria for the award includes an unconditional commitment to literacy; someone who quietly, selflessly does literacy work under the radar, year after year; a person who makes an impact, empowers families and inspires communities. This year’s award recipient will be
announced in late September. “True to form, when Ruth passed away last February, she requested that donations be made in her memory to the One to One program,” said Schiller. “The books we were able to purchase with the $500 we received will be welcome additions to the One to One libraries at Mission Hill and two other elementary schools.”

Moving away from grown kids
ear Annie: I left my hometown when I was 19 and have lived in a nearby state for the past 27 years. Two of my children are grown and on their own, and my youngest currently lives with my ex-husband overseas. My mother is now in her 70s and has many medical problems, lives alone and rarely leaves the house. I am also in a long-distance relationship with a man from my childhood who lives near my mother. I am planning to move back to my home state to help Kathy Mitchell & MarcySugar my mother and also pursue this relationship. However, I am torn between moving back there and being able to see my children, who live in various places. It breaks my heart for my mother to be all alone, and I know I am running out of time to have her in my life. I also feel this man is “the one,” and I want to be with him. Annie, I spent nearly 30 years caring for my kids. I plan to see them every few months and create a visitation schedule for my son to be with me. Am I being selfish to move away? — Torn Between Kids, Parents and Boyfriend Dear Torn: Absolutely not. You aren’t abandoning young children. Your kids no longer live with you, so you are free
to go where you wish. As long as you can visit your children and work out a time for your youngest to be with you, you are under no obligation to remain in your current home. You have spent 27 years taking care of your kids, and now you are quite unselfishly going to take care of your mother. You deserve to also take care of yourself. Dear Annie: I recently invited some friends to my home for an informal Sunday supper. We’ve known one another for 10 years and usually go out to restaurants. This is the first time we’ve had them over to our home. Since then, I have not received any kind of invitation from them. Worse, one of them recently said they had such a good time that we should do it again. But no one volunteered to use their home. Someone suggested I do it. I have done a lot of entertaining in the past, and going over my guest lists, I realize that very few people have returned the favor. Before my husband died last year, he said flat out that he was tired of entertaining people who do nothing for us in return. One of our neighbors was invited twice to our home, and I have yet to be inside her house. Is reciprocity some old social rule that no longer exists? — Still Waiting Dear Still: No, but many people no longer feel obligated to follow any social rules at all. We think your particular problem is home entertainment. Too many people
Staying connected Morning Star Staff
If you are an empathetic individual with some time to spare, the Good Morning Program could use your help. Designed to help people stay connected, the Good Morning Program is operated by the People in Need Crisis Line and has been making calls for 37 years. “Volunteers provide a daily phone check-in service to individuals in the community who live independently and may be socially isolated,” said Good Morning Program coordinator June Hawkins. “Most people on the program are seniors; however, age is not a specific requirement of the program.” One volunteer said she gets great satisfaction from helping out with the program. “The participants so appreciate receiving their call and when I talk to them, I know I am making a difference in their lives,” she said. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the Good Morning Program, please contact the PIN administration office at 250-545-8074.

are embarrassed by the condition of their houses or by their cooking skills. They don’t realize that their friends aren’t interested in comparing furniture and appetizers. They simply want to enjoy the company. The solution for you is to entertain in your home only those who will reciprocate, and socialize with the rest in neutral settings such as restaurants. Dear Annie: “Too Good of a Cook” complained that her eight grown children and grandchildren visited often but never offered to help with the groceries or cooking. My parents owned a vacation home, and each year, the family gathered for one long holiday weekend. It was not fair for our parents to host all of the families and feed them, as well. To ensure that everyone had a nice vacation and still contributed their fair share, each family was responsible for one day of meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. That meant they also had to shop, prepare, cook, serve and clean up. This worked well for many years. Our parents have passed, but those were great years with warm memories — and tasty meals. — Colorado River Family Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Scourged and mocked. “Then Pilate took Jesus and scourged him.” Mark 19:1. Our Lord was subjected to the unrestrained brutality of men. Scourging was the first preliminary to crucifixion. He was stripped naked and publicly made to kneel with this hands tied to the base of a pillar. Using a knotted bludgeon many blows were inflicted on his back by a strong man, blows which tore the flesh and drew blood. Imagine the agony for it is “with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah. 53:5.

sick from foodborne illness (food poisoning) every day, with many of these cases going unreported. Summer time can be especially bad for these types of illnesses because bacteria can multiply quickly in the hot weather. The symptoms of food poisoning include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, and usually go away after one to three days. However, some cases of food poisoning can result in severe complications, prolonged sickness and even death. Preparing and handling food, especially outdoors, does present some additional food safety risks. But with some planning and food safety knowhow, the risks can be reduced. Follow the four C’s of food safety:
n CLEAN: wash hands for a minimum of 20 seconds; clean work surfaces and utensils often - especially after handling or preparing raw meat and poultry; n Don’t CROSS C O N TA M I NAT E : avoid using the same utensils, plates or cutting board for raw meat and cooked meat; n COOK: hamburgers to an internal temperature of 71°C (160°F), and chicken to an internal temperature of 74°C (165°F). Don’t just rely on how the meat “looks” - always use a meat thermometer when using the barbecue. n CHILL: refrigerate food and leftovers promptly. Do not leave any foods outside of the refrigerator or cooler for longer than two hours. Facts: n According to recent Canadian pop-
ulation studies, up to four million cases of domestically acquired foodborne illness occur each year. n Research findings by the Canadian Partnership for Consumer Food Safety Education show that despite the fact that a majority of adults feel confident they understand and follow safe food handling procedures, a sizeable number do not consistently follow certain safe food handling practices. Some of the findings included: n Only 15 per cent of people consistently use a food thermometer. Using a food thermometer is critical – you can’t always tell food has been cooked properly by how it looks. n Only half of consumers reported washing their hands for 20 seconds, before and after handling food.
Hands and surfaces need to be cleaned often to reduce the risk of food borne illness. “Mild cases of food poisoning happen frequently, said Lynn Wilcott, food safety specialist, BC Centre for Disease Control. “They don’t need to, and most cases of foodborne illness are preventable,” said Wilcott. “There are easy things we can do like washing our hands and cooking foods thoroughly which will significantly reduce the risk of food poisoning.” More info: n BCCDC Food Safety information at: www.bccdc.ca/foodhealth/default.htm n Be Food Safe Canada at: www. befoodsafe.ca n BC HealthFiles: w w w. h e a l t h l i n k b c . ca/servicesresources/ healthlinkbcfiles and use the search term “food.”

Bridge by Phillip Alder ANOTHER MILESTONE IN A COLUMN CAREER Today is a particular milestone for me. I have been writing this column for just over 22 years and this is my 7,000th. Please permit me to show you one of my favorite deals. It occurred in 1968 while I was in high school, playing in a duplicate at the Newport Bridge Club in Monmouthshire, England (now Gwent, Wales). I was partnering with one of our school bridge team, Tony Disley. I opened one no-trump, showing 12-14 points. (Yes, this was a slight underbid; it would have been reasonable to call this a 15-point hand.) Since we were not using transfer bids,
Disley employed Stayman, then optimistically raised two spades to four spades. (Of course, if he had invited with three spades, I would have gone on to game.) West led the club queen. How did I plan the play? With three top losers, at first glance, I needed the heart finesse to win. But then I saw a much better line. I won the first trick on the board and called for the diamond jack. East rushed in with the ace and returned a club (not that it mattered). I won on the board, played a diamond to my king, and led the spade queen. Now West erred by playing her king. East groaned while winning with her ace and led another club, but I ruffed, drew the
missing trump, and claimed an overtrick. Dummy’s heart loser went on my diamond queen. Afterward, I looked at the other results. At every table, North made two spades with only one overtrick. Perhaps all of the Easts led a heart at trick one, but I doubt it.

KNUDSLIEN Alf passed away peacefully on Friday, August 2, 2013, at The Gateby. He was born February 15, 1924 in Ryley, Alberta. After he finished school, Alf worked as a veterinary assistant, and at many other jobs, but was mainly a truckdriver. Alf married Esther (Neuman) in 1955, having already built a home for them in Edmonton. Alf and Esther lived in many places, finally settling in Sirdar, BC where they purchased a hotel. In 1979, Alf and Esther moved to Vernon. Alf volunteered at many places, including Santas Anonymous where he specialized in repairing toys and rebuilding bicycles. Later, he volunteered at his grandaughter’s school in West Vernon, where he would take kids on field trips and other social activities. Alf ’s greatest joy was leading his granddaughter Colleen down the aisle when she got married. Alf and Esther enjoyed many holidays in their RV, going to the Island and along the ocean shores. Alf ’s last enjoyable holiday was 8 years ago, to England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. He has resided in the Gateby for the last three years. Alf is survived by Esther, Maureen, Colleen (Josh), brother Wilf (June), sister Violet (Bill) and many nieces, nephews, and many kids who called him grandpa. Alf was predeceased by his parents and brother Ingmar. Many thanks to Dr. Gilhooly and the wonderful caring staff at The Gateby. second floor south. Flowers are gratefully declined.
