Military makes no waves in UXO removal ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

The almost 70-year-old unexploded ordnance (UXO) found by a citizen in Kal Lake Monday was safely exploded Friday by professionals. A 12-man team from Canadian Fleet Pacific out of Esquimalt, including a five-man dive team, five-man sonar sweep squad and two support crew, found what Lt.(N) Mike St. Pierre described as a, “typical Commonwealth Second World War mortar,” Friday morning in 12 feet of water about 100feet off-shore from Cosens Bay, then disposed of the ordnance. “It was a live mortar and you never want to play with any ordnance,” said St. Pierre to a group of media gathered at the Kekuli Bay boat launch Friday afternoon. “It was about six inches long and the diameter of about a baseball with fins on it. We transported it to the military base (army camp), placed explosives on it and we blew it up. That’s the safest way of getting rid of it and ensuring it’s out of harm’s way.” Leading Seaman Marcel Croteau was the diver who safely guided the ordnance out of the water. He went down and did a standard search procedure called a circle search. However, said Croteau, it was after the search that he spotted the mortar. “I just caught it with my eye after I was finished,” said Croteau. “It’s quite small and hard to see with the naked eye.” Without touching the shell, Croteau tied a line around it, surfaced and got out of the water to be safe. From a remote location, the shell was pulled slowly from the sand. Once Croteau confirmed it was out of the lake bottom, the crew carefully took it to the army camp for disposal. In all, it took about eight man hours from start to finish to find the ordnance. Military crews were guided by the civilian who found it on Monday, Justin Hildebrand, a

Lt.-(N) Mike St. Pierre (below) explains that a UXO found in Kal Lake by a civilian Monday was live, removed safely from the lake and blown up at the army camp. For a video of the military mission visit trained diver and a free diver who happened to spot the ordnance doing a dive off of his Sea-Doo at about 2 p.m. Monday. “He found it by breath holding, which is exceptional,” said St. Pierre. “The average member of the public likely wouldn’t have found it. It was like finding a needle in a haystack, especially the amount exposed. He was lucky to find it.” Hildebrand immediately called the RCMP, who got in touch with the military police. They are the ones who called Canadian Fleet Pacific. “He did a great job,” said St. Pierre of Hildebrand. The team was asked to not only find and dispose of the ordnance, but make sure the area was

safe for all boaters and swimmers. Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class Dave Ostropolski is part of the five-man side scan sonar sweep

crew, who used a lot of remote equipment to look for more shells. “We’ve already cruised around Cosens Bay at about the 15-metre

(40-foot) mark on either side,” said Ostropolski. “The bay looks like the surrounding hills: a few rocky outcroppings, a few nice sandy bottom spots and a few trees. “We have seen nothing else so far.” Added St. Pierre: “We’re going to check for more because you never know what’s there. It’s a beautiful lake and it’s definitely a safe lake. “We’ve been tasked to not only deal with the UXO but demonstrate to the public that we’re taking active measure to ensure everyone has a great summer.” The crew was going to be checking areas between 15-metres deep and the high water mark of the lake.

Good Samaritans splash to the rescue Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

A potentially catastrophic canoe trip was averted Wednesday evening when three Vancouver Island youth and a Vernon man dove to the rescue of three individuals in distress. The trio of canoeists were out on Kalamalka Lake, near Kal Beach, when their boat capsized. Gary Lefebvre, of Vernon, was visiting with family after playing volleyball at the beach when he heard a faint call for help. “It was about 8 p.m. and the beach was clearing out and my three cousins were still having fun out in the water,” said Lefebvre. “Before I could decide if I had actually heard someone call for help the three boys were quickly swimming out to help the canoeist,” said Lefebvre, who quickly followed suit behind Brennan Lund, 16, Connor Lund, 13, and Ethan Milne, 12 (all visiting from Cobble Hill – Vancouver Island).

“I was amazed at their bravery.” — Gary Lefebvre

“Once we reached the canoe there were three canoeists but only one of them was wearing a lifejacket. None of them were strong swimmers and couldn’t move the canoe.” Lefebvre, who happens to be an aquatic supervisor at the Vernon Recreation Centre and has been a lifeguard for 20 years, helped the boys get the canoeists safely to shore. “It was quite a long haul,” said Brennan, a competitive swimmer who instinctively swam out to help. “They were obviously quite stressed out. “If no one had noticed them out there who knows what could’ve happened.” The canoeists were both relieved and thankful that someone noticed their calls

for help. “At that time of night it could have been a while before anyone noticed them,” said Lefebvre, adding that while 24 C water feels warm it doesn’t take long before it can chill a person. “Hypothermia could set in, they may attempt to swim for shore and not make it, currents could pull out into the lake.” Lefebvre commends the heroic act of the three young boys. “I was amazed at their bravery,” he said. “In my mind those kids are heroes and I think it is a good reminder to everyone to wear their PFD’s.” A new review just completed by the Coroners Service shows that boating is significantly the highest-risk activity for drowning among recreational water users. A total of 37.5 per cent of persons who drowned in recreational cases in the fiveand-a-half years from Jan. 1, 2008 to July 29, 2013, were engaged in some type of boating activity at the time. This included power-

boats, rowboats, sailboats, canoes, kayaks, and pontoon boats, and also those who were fishing from a boat when things went wrong. The total number of accidental drownings from Jan. 1 to July 29 this year in B.C. is 45, exactly the average of the past five years and a slight decrease from 2012 figures. However, August is historically the month with the highest number of drowning cases, prompting a need for ongoing vigilance.

forces behind the first Okanagan Tattoo that was originally slated for Aug. 3 at Kal Tire Place, Crerar and fellow organizers are now setting their sites on 2014, planning to make the first tattoo a two-day show rather than one. A musical tattoo is a demonstration of military drumming, piping and skills, and is called a ‘tattoo’ because when the British Army was fighting in Belgium 300 years ago, soldiers were called in from the pubs each night for curfew, or Doe den tap toe, Dutch for ‘Turn off the tap.’ “We had the local army cadet camp lads

The one we thought was on the hook let us know at the end of May that they were standing down

for July and August due to budget cuts. That pretty well ended our chance of doing the event this year.” There will be a mini-tattoo Thursday from 5:30 to 5:50 p.m. at the army camp’s Dieppe Parade Square (west side of Highway 97) which will be held just before the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Camp’s Sunset Ceremony at 6 p.m.

Vancouver firm takes the reins over track plans roger knox Morning Star Staff

The talk about the new sports complex beside Okanagan College rests with a Vancouver firm. Dialog has been named the prime consultant for the project, beating out three other finalists. “Their proposal and the attention to our project best met the criteria in our proposal,” said Keith Pinkosky, parks planner for the Regional District of North Okanagan. The RDNO’s request to borrow $7.5 million for the sports complex, which includes a new running track, was successfully passed in an April referendum. On its website, Dialog describes its company as so: “From education and healthcare to office and residential, our commitment to doing great work, and enjoying the journey that comes along with it, helps create lasting success for all our clients. And in these environments of constant change we design balanced, beautiful responses that are never the same, but always make a difference.” Now that the project manager has been selected, the next step is meeting with stakeholder groups.

RECYCLE Your Gold & Gems We can create new treasures for you & your loved ones!


Dialog, a Vancouver-based company, has been named project manager for the new sports complex at Okanagan College. “We’ll confer with some of the users on-site and come up with a firmer timeline for a detailed design process,” said Pinkosky. The overall project manager will be Doug Wournell from Dialog. Project managers were used for the Performing Arts Centre, Kal Tire Place and Vernon’s library.

The expectation is to move dirt in the fall to either pre-load the site or, depending on soil conditions, excavate and build up the sub-structure for the track. The site is in the Agricultural Land Reserve and the terms of the Agricultural Land Commission agreeing to a non-farm use include construction being completed by November 2014.

Longboarders may face fines

Spinal pain is often noticed weeks, months, and sometimes years after the underlying problem actually began. Pain is like a ringing fire alarm that is triggered once the nerves are adequately irritated, which sometimes takes years. The key lies in identifying what the underlying problem is—what’s causing the pain. There are dozens of tiny spinal joints in your back and neck. They can become misaligned, or subluxated, by all kinds of stressors: poor posture, falls from playground equipment or down stairs, sport tackles, long hours of sitting, car accidents, and even the birthing process (often called “birth trauma,” and for good reason!). Spinal inflammation often begins painlessly and is your body’s attempt to heal the irritation. As the inflammation mounts, and more and more damage is done by the grinding pressure of the misalignment, chemicals are released by the surrounding tissue to irritate the nerves for one important reason—to cause the damaged area to hurt so that you become aware of the problem! Chiropractors are trained in spine, nerve, and joint health. We help by retraining the spine to a more optimal position, freeing nerves and joints of damaging stress so your body can heal properly. If these problems are caught early, years of chronic pain may be avoided. Chiropractor’s often see disillusioned patients who are tired of taking drugs, their tests all clear, and are living in pain not knowing where to turn. Maybe something is causing the problem that can be overcome.

Morning Star Staff

Longboarders take note: the City of Vernon does not support the use of its streets for longboarding practice or play. In a press release issued Thursday, the city states that its traffic bylaw “prohibits nonvehicular uses, occurring in the right-of-way, that have the potential to create opportunities for unsafe activities or conflict with motorized vehicles to occur.” Those prohibitions include longboards, as well as other methods of transportation such as skateboards, skis, rollerblades, sleighs and snowmobiles that may create conflict with pedestrians or vehicles. Bicycles are not on the list but their use is strictly controlled through the city bylaw and Motor Vehicle Act. Minimum fines are $75. Strata communities in hillside developments should be aware that the city’s traffic bylaw and prohibition on longboarding are not applicable on private roads. “Should they wish to restrict this activity within their developments, they would need to sign the roadway appropriately, notify the longboarders of their requirements, and use the Provincial Trespass Act and the RCMP to enforce their restriction,” states the city’s release. Recently, a series of acci-

Sanctioned longboarding events within the City of Vernon are fine, but no practise or play is permitted. dents between longboarders and motorized vehicles in the Greater Vancouver area have brought the use of public roadways and conflict between these two user groups to the media forefront. As longboarding attracts more younger riders, the opportunity for accidents to occur also increases. “With Vernon’s hillside development continuing to occur, and as roads with steeper

grades are created, our streets have become more attractive for this new sport,” said the city, which does support the sport of longboarding by allowing the closure of a steep roadway on Middleton Mountain in order to accommodate a well-run, official longboarding race event. Anybody who would like more information can call the city’s bylaw division at 250-5503505.

Spinning the tunes

he other night I discovered a ‘mixer tape’ I had made for a reunion of sorts for a bunch of high-school friends at Blue Lake Lodge, oh, a decade or so ago. The reason I know it was Blue Lake Lodge, near Boston Bar where we went river rafting, is not because I have a great memory, I don’t, but rather because I’d written it on the cassette tape I’d made for the occasion. So, just for old times sake I started playing the thing to see what kind of music I had prepared to share with my friends, to be honest I don’t remember if I even played the thing but, hey, it’s the thought that counts. I hit ‘play’ on the old cassette/radio device that now is mostly just used for the radio part, in the kitchen of course, and it promptly stopped. Right, I remembered, you have to flip it over to the other side when that happens. However, soon the lyrics “I remember when rock Glenn Mitchell was young, me and Suzie had so much fun......” began to blast out of both speakers and it brought a smile to my face. “Hey, I know that song,” the youngest son piped up, and it was kind of cool that he knew Crocodile Rock, even if he couldn’t name the title or even guess the artist even when I gave him five or six clues, including the initials EJ, for Elton John, of course. It was getting late at night, and being impatient I fast-forwarded (which is actually painfully slow by today’s standards by the way) to uncover Joe Jackson, ELO, The Knack (guess which song?) and other treasures like The Cars. “Hey, I know those guys, it’s on my iPhone,” said the oldest one to the sounds of My Best Friend’s Girl. Again, he didn’t know the artist but it was, again, kind of neat that he had a song from my youth on his phone. So, this, of course, launched a sermon, lecture, commentary, or even musing if you like, from yours truly on the changes in technology and how things were so different in my day. Gee, I’m getting old. But he did his best to listen as I did my best

MitChEll’S MuSingS

to keep it from sounding like a rant and a secret longing for yesteryear. “Do you know how long it would’ve taken me to make this 90-minute tape?” Of course I wasn’t looking for an answer as he stared at me knowing that I would probably keep going before he could even begin to answer a question that in this day of downloading music in a nano-second put him at a distinct disadvantage in even having a clue of what to guess, let alone know. “I would have to get out each album for each song, or maybe two on an album, play the entire length of the song, stop, then get out the next album, play the entire song, stop, and keep going until I filled up the one side, 45 minutes of songs, which is like 12 or 13 songs, and, of course, not screw up by cutting anything off or forgetting to press record and play at the same time or...... “Wow,” he said. Right answer. I had to smile and slow down my rant just a little. “It would take me literally most of the day. But you know what, I loved it. And it was fun and it felt good to share something with friends. Making a good ‘mixer tape’ and giving it to a friend, who hopefully liked it, was considered one of the greatest gifts around. Partly cause it took so long. I still have some I treasure that friends gave me. Of course I have no idea where they are but I treasure them and will stumble across them one day and.....” He cut me off. “You know what, I think music meant more to you guys back in the day,” he suggested. OK. I’ll take that, and thanks. And, I think, it was partly cause we worked harder for it, and spent all our money on it, and the album covers were works of art (sometimes) that helped define our space and time on this planet etc. (which is also why I still have all of them and play them, even though I could download them in a nano-second) and the lyrics meant something and they take me back to when.... But you know what, I feel another rant coming on so I’ll just say thanks for saying that son, and some of today’s music is pretty cool, too, no matter how you get it, and I’m pretty sure you’ll be defending it to your offspring one day. In the meantime, everybody sing “My Sharona, come a little closer.......”

Just about any information a person may hear can seem truer if they hear it often enough. Repetition works wonders. Repetition works wonders. The topic here is dogs and hot weather and here goes the the plea, once again (and it naturally goes double for children, where applicable). The short-form of this message would be to simply suggest dogs be left at home far more often than they are. We’re not formally linked with the SPCA, by the way, just interested in much of what it promotes. The longer form stresses the fact of how fast a vehicle heats up once the air conditioning goes off, how hot pavement can be for the feet of a pooch on a 30C+ day and how there’s no way a panting tongue alone can properly cool an animal sporting a thick fur coat. Sure this is all repeated every summer but, just like drinking-and-driving warnings, it’s well worth repeating if the lives of only one or two pets are spared or made more comfortable. One last thing: If you have your sheepdog or pug in the car with you during this hot weather and you really are only going to leave them for a minute or two, please try to be tolerant if someone takes you to task in a parking lot. It’s because they care. Hopefully they won’t go overboard. Then again, why not avoid any possible conflict and just leave the dog at home near the water dish? Black Press

Grateful for community support

e live in an amazing community of people that are generous and helpful to those in need. In October of last year – thanks in large part to this community's help – our Hayley – daughter, granddaughter, mother, partner, sister, auntie, and great friend to many – was able to undergo experimental surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix Arizona. Since that time Hayley has continued to struggle with a post-op infection on the wound above her right ear, which has required constant vigilance and continued medications. In spite of that, Hayley has noticed some improvement in her days out of bed. This occurred right at the predicted six months after surgery. Over the last 10-12 weeks Hayley has been out of bed more days than she has over the last two years. In no way does this mean a normal life, it just means that we are all so very grateful to see Hayley out of bed, enjoying her life, as well as her daughter Sloan and partner Mike more often. Nobody appreciates it more than that little family, as they wait for the arrival of the latest addiwaGe parity I am all in favour of paying people for what they do but when people like the Vernon firefighters think that they should be paid the same as a Vancouver firefighter that is just ridiculous. Let's take a look! Vancouver has a population of 1,000,000 plus and Vernon 35,000 plus. Vancouver covers an area approximately 10 times the size of Vernon. Vancouver has oil refineries and pumping, grain, shipping, rail lines, chemical factories, major factories, a massive trucking system. Vernon has a few small businesses. Vancouver has more and a greater variety of calls than the Vernon firefighters. Vancouver has a higher cost of living than Vernon. Vancouver firefighters are required to know and operate more and a greater variety of machines than Vernon. Vancouver has skyscrapers 45 stories plus, Vernon has the hospi-

tion – due in mid August. On our last visit to the Mayo Clinic in the spring, the physicians confirmed that Hayley is still the only person in all of North America to have this level of nerve stimulation treatment. What we were really happy to hear is that in Germany this treatment is more common, and they are about to publish a paper stating that if a patient has had some positive response at about the sixmonth point post operatively then they are realizing a marked improvement between 18-36 months after stimulation begins. A day of pain that is 8/10 is something that would put most people in the hospital, or at least in bed. For Hayley those days are an improvement, and while she is grateful for that, it is not enough to consider that a normal life. They wholeheartedly agreed with her, and will continue to strive to improve this for her. We are all keeping our collective fingers crossed that this is the case for Hayley, and we are so very grateful to this community for supporting Hayley and her whole family in this journey. Kathy Goldie, Hayley's mom

tal and maybe eight-storey buildings. Vancouver firefighters do not respond to as many ambulance calls. Vancouver firefighters must contend and know how to interact with a large variety of chemicals. Vernon's only chemicals that I know of are sold on the streets. If our firefighters think they are entitled to this great wage then here's what should be required. They meet all the minimum requirements for recruitment for the Vancouver firefighters. Pass all entrance tests and interviews. Become as proficient as the Vancouver firefighters are on all their equipment and variety of fires. It does not matter if they will use it they say they are worth the money they have to prove it. They also have to keep their proficiency up on this equipment. If they cannot pass or keep up to these standards then they go back to a reasonable salary that corresponds to cities of our size.

water woes Recently The Morning Star published a story of a young woman encouraging citizens to stop watering their lawns. One edition previous to that there was a letter to the editor expressing the idea of diverting water from the Shuswap. These are two ideas on both ends of the spectrum in response to the idea that we have no water in the Okanagan. An idea proudly spread by the Okanagan Basin Water Board, as seen in some of their water wise articles. I would like to address two main concerns. First of all our reservoirs are full. We do have water, and most years our reservoirs overflow for weeks on end as they did this year. (notice that we have not seen any graphs in the paper this year?) Second, according to www. the average Okanagan resident is wasting water by using 675 litres per day per person. If that were true, our five-person household quarterly water bill

would be $567.25. They say that we increase our personal water use in the summer to 1,000 litres per day. If that were true, I can expect a water bill for $830.50 after the next quarter. In actual fact my household in the last quarter used 140 litres per day per person. Can someone from the Okanagan Basin Water Board explain how you come up with your numbers? Joel van der Molen safety issue I would like to invite the drivers, walkers, bikers and everyone else to take time to notice the lack of safety traveling from 43rd street on 24th avenue to 34th street. You may notice that those that are walking are having to walk on the street inside the parked cars on the side of the road as there are no sidewalks nor bike paths. Why? Observe this for yourselves and then please help me ask the city of Vernon what they are going to do about it. it is a highly populated area with lots of pedes-

trians, please fix it before someone else gets hurt. Gail pifer

Cops For Kids come through Jacob Brayshaw now has the ability to take part in family outings, thanks to the Cops For Kids charity. Brayshaw, a 10-year-old Vernon resident, suffers from a type of muscular dystrophy that causes muscle weakness and affects his ability to perform daily living activities. But that all changed with the donation of an electric tricycle funded through Cops For Kids. “Thank you to Cops For Kids for providing Jacob the opportunity to get outside with his sister and his peers,” said Brayshaw’s mom, Michelle. “This is the opportunity that he’s been waiting for all summer.” Cops For Kids is a group of dedicated RCMP members and friends, including B.C. Sheriffs, committed to raising money in order to help children in medical, physical or traumatic crisis within Southeastern B.C. A majority of money for the charity is raised every year in September during a 1,000-kilometre

bike trek through Southeastern B.C. “Cops For Kids is pleased to assist Jacob with the funding for his new bike,” said VernonNorth Okanagan RCMP Const. Tyler Jackson, a Cops For Kids rider who was on hand for the presentation of the tricycle to Brayshaw at Vernon’s Swan Lake Nurseryland. “We fundraise tirelessly throughout the year in order to help local families. Today is a special day. “We realize that equipment for children with special needs is very expensive, combined with all of the other medical costs these families incur on a daily basis.” Vernon sheriff and Cops For Kids rider Kevin Lane said it was great to be able to give a bike to a local family. “Now that he’s got his wheels, we hope he can join us for a portion of the Cops For Kids ride when we arrive in Vernon on Sept. 14,” said Lane. The annual Cops For Kids ride runs Sept. 6 to 15, kicking off and finishing in Kelowna.

Child inspired to donate hair Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

The spirit of giving is catching on among North Okanagan youth, who are inspiring each other to make a difference. At just five-yearsold Chelsea Kazimer recently chopped her locks to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society. Her inspiration to do so came from a newspaper article about another girl who has repeat-

edly donated her hair. “A couple years ago I read her a story from (The Morning Star) of how a local girl had her long hair cut off and donated to the Canadian Cancer Society,” said dad Jason Kazimer. “I explained to her how that girl, Courtney Graves, had done that before and why she was doing it again and what it meant to people stricken with cancer.” Graves, now a teen-

ager, has cut her hair twice after she too was inspired by a newspaper article about another lady donating her hair to make wigs for cancer patients. “Now this story made quite the impression on her (Chelsea), which was quite something, considering that she was only three at the time,” beamed Kazimer. For the next two years, a determined Chelsea never gave up on her goal to grow her hair out and, in her words, “cut my hair off and give it to sick girl who’s bald.” So with her hair finally long enough, Chelsea recently headed to Seasons Salon and Spa, where stylist Taya Springinotic donated her time for the worthy cause. “Chelsea finally got her wish,” said Kazimer, a proud father alongside her mom Kara and big brother Alexander. And who knows, perhaps Chelsea’s story will inspire even more kids to give – whether it’s hair, proceeds from a lemonade stand or their time at a local fundraiser.

Market finds natural fit with Kindale support Morning Star Staff

Nature’s Fare Markets helped Kindale put the fun into fundraising at the recent Downtown Vernon Association Block Party. Cheering could be heard throughout the afternoon by the Kindale volunteers, who were manning the charity barbecue, and joyful sounds from the children enjoying the bouncy castle, which was supervised by Kindale. The party didn’t end there as Kindale’s efforts raised more than $800 in proceeds from the event. “You might ask why we chose Kindale to support as a charity. We have noticed over the years, the effort that has gone into fundraising with various charitable groups and the attention that some groups get over others,” said Laurie Rodger, Vernon Nature’s Fare store manager. “Kindale doesn’t have a deadly disease to fight but it does have a huge need for money, just like every other charity. They have worked hard within the community to raise awareness of the challenges and needs of people with developmental disabilities. The people at Kindale are there to assist those with challenges in life and aid in their development by teaching basic life skills.” For Rodger, it’s also a cause close to his heart. “Having a niece with challenges of her own, I have come to realize how important it is to have groups like this in our community.” Cindy Masters, Kindale development officer, appreciates the partnership with Nature’s Fare.

Pierce gets fluent in French rugby Graeme Corbett Morning Star Staff

Cameron Pierce’s Twitter profile says it all. “Small town Canadian kid. National team rugby player with a travelling habit. ASM academy to Section Paloise (France).” Pierce (@cdpierce4), a former high school standout with the Kalamalka Lakers, earned his first cap (and second selection) with Team Canada on June 19, coming on as a secondhalf sub in a 16-13 loss to Japan. Despite the outcome, Pierce will definitely remember playing in front of 4,456 fans, especially because of the weather. “We played in Nagoya and the rain didn’t stop the entire game,” said Pierce, noting it was part of the Pacific Nations Cup tournament between the U.S., Tonga, Japan and Fiji. Canada placed second. “It was back and forth the whole game, but they capitalized on a few penalties against us and pulled through.” The 21-year-old Pierce’s selection came as a shock. Even though he was training with the club, it wasn’t until about halfway through the initial Pacific Nations Cup camp in Victoria that he was selected for the first game against the U.S. (he did not play). “I definitely didn’t expect to be selected that quickly, but I had a good few days at camp and some other players at my position were injured or not there at the time,” said the 6-foot-7, 240-pound second row player. Pierce’s trajectory to the national team has been a direct one, albeit with a European detour. He had a stint with the Kelowna Crows in Grade 12 before committing to the University of Victoria Vikings. By the end of his first season, he was the starting No. 8 for the Vikes, helping them win a B.C. Premier title while he was still a teenager. Since then, he has spent the last two years with the Under 23 ASM Clermont academy team in France. He was a starter for all of last season, which saw Clermont fall to Montpellier on penalty kicks in the semifinal. The game remained tied after 20 minutes of overtime, resulting in kicks on the 22-metre line. “Dumb way to lose if you ask me,” said Pierce. “They went on to win the final by 20 points to a team we crushed a few weeks prior, so that was pretty upsetting.”

Coldstream’s Cameron Pierce prepares for a lineout while playing U23 club rugby in France with aSm Clermont. Pierce recently went pro, signing a oneyear contract with the club Section Paloise in Pau (southwest France). The team plays in the French second division (ProD2). He probably could have signed with Clermont’s pro team, but said he would be way down the depth chart. He said Clermont are like the Boston Bruins of French rugby. “I decided this would be a better fit for me to climb the ladder as a professional rugby

player,” said Pierce. “This new club will give me a better opportunity to play at the professional level, and from there, hopefully make it into the Top 14 (France’s highest league). He might be onto something here as the bottom two teams of Top 14 are relegated to ProD2, while the top ProD2 teams get promoted. Pau has placed third in ProD2 for the past two years. Pierce will play and train with the Paloise

pro team every week, and if he is not selected to the game squad, he will still be eligible to play U23. Off the pitch, Pierce is loving life in France, especially now that he speaks the language. “It was difficult at the beginning, but now that I speak fluent French it makes life a lot easier,” said Pierce, who was one of two or three Anglophones at the academy. “Many players who come to France come right into the pro system at an older age and have no intentions on learning a second language.” And with flights and train tickets both cheap and plentiful, Pierce has made the most of his downtime while overseas. “Any chance I have to travel I take it,” he said. “So far my favorite places have been Prague and Barcelona. “When I moved to my new place in Pau, we drove less than an hour to the coast and stayed in France’s surf capital of Biarritz. Hopefully I can make that a hobby when I go back.” Pierce said it will be tough to crack Canada’s roster for its upcoming World Cup qualifiers. The Canadians face the U.S. in a two-game, home-and-home series in August. The winner advances to the 2015 World Cup in England. The loser will take on Uruguay in a NACRA-CONSUR playoff final. “Those games are very important, so Rugby Canada will try and put together their best team possible, including bringing in some big guns like my old clubmate at ASM Clermont, Jamie Cudmore, from Squamish,” he said. Rugby Canada received a lot of face time (or perhaps beard time) at the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand, thanks to the lunchbox mentality of Adam Kleeberger and several other heavily bearded Canadian players. The organization is looking to continue that momentum after signing a two-year contract with TSN leading up to 2015. Canada’s home games, in both Sevens and 15s, will be broadcast. “This contract will definitely help Canadian rugby grow in popularity; all the guys are pretty excited about it,” said Pierce. Pierce has signed up for Open Learning through Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, with the goal of finishing the Bachelor of Arts degree he started at UVic four years ago.

Pospisil meets Raonic in all-Canadian Rogers Cup semi Morning Star Staff/Tennis Canada

Vernon’s Vasek Pospisil made a little slice of Canadian history at the Rogers Cup Friday morning in Montreal. Pospisil became the first Canadian tennis player since Mike Belkin in 1969 to reach the final four of the event, once called the Canadian Open, when his opponent Nikolay Davydenko retired due to illness in their quarterfinal match. Pospisil, 23, was leading 3-0 in the first set when the Russian retired. Vasek Pospisil The Saturday semifinal became an all-Canadian affair after Thornhill, Ont.’s Milos Raonic, the 11th seed, rode the spirited support of the centre court crowd for a 7-6 (2), 4-6, 6-4 victory over Ernests Gulbis of Latvia Friday afternoon.

Gulbis had taken out second-seeded Andy Murray on Thursday. Pospisil is now guaranteed $129,000 in the $3.5 million tennis tournament. The last time two Canadians participated in the quarterfinals of their home tournament was 1989. The last time a Canadian was in the final was 1958, when Robert Bedard won the last of his three titles. It will be the first meeting between Raonic and Pospisil in an ATP Tour tournament. Pospisil holds a 3-1 edge in their four meetings in lower level events, but Raonic took the most recent match in 2010. “Exciting match,” Pospisil told Tennis Canada. “Two Canadians in the semifinal, one guaranteed to be in the final. It’s a historic moment for tennis in Canada. “We obviously know each other very well. Since we were little kids. You’ve got to give the edge to Milos, for sure. I have

the edge in terms of head-to-head (matchups), but things have changed in the last two years. My run here doesn’t change anything here in terms of that. But we’ll see how it goes.” Top seed and defending champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia played No. 4 Rafael Nadal of Spain in the other semifinal Saturday. In the past two years, the hard-serving, 22-year-old Raonic has risen to No. 13 in the world rankings, a record for a Canadian. Pospisil has taken a slower path, but is on a roll of late. He won a Challenger series tournament last week in Vancouver, then kept it going in Montreal with wins over John Isner, Radek Stepanek, fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych and Davydenko, a former world No. 3 who is now ranked 47th. Combining his tourney win in Vancouver with his stellar run in Montreal, Pospisil should vault into the ATP top 50. He was a career high No. 71 heading into the Rogers Cup.

Ferner rejoins Blazer bench Ogopogos hunt medal Graeme Corbett

Morning Star Staff

Mark Ferner joked that his wife Jody couldn’t put up with having him around the house any longer. “I need to get out of town, or out of the country,” he chuckled. Unemployed since January, when he was fired by the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League, Ferner landed himself a new job this week as the associate coach of the Kamloops Blazers. More seriously, Ferner said: “I couldn’t not coach for a year. I just wanted to stay in the game.” Kamloops has been a big part of Ferner’s life – he grew up there, played his junior hockey with the Jr. Oilers/Blazers, and was also head coach of the Blazers for two seasons (2004-06). His late father, Ed, was a longtime scout for Kamloops, and has since Mark Ferner had his name inducted into the organization’s hall of fame, in the builders category. “It’s a real familiar place to me,” said Ferner, 47. “My mom still lives there, Jody’s parents live there, her brother, my sister. “I had opportunities to go elsewhere, but Mackenzie (Ferner’s son, who will play defence this season with the BCHL West Kelowna Warriors) is only 17 once and I’ll get to see him play a little bit more.” Ferner was fired by Kamloops midway through the 2005-06 season, back when the Blazers were a community-owned team. He is confident things will be different the second time around, partly because he has matured as a coach. “It’s always tough when you get fired for the first time,” said Ferner. “Is it for the right reasons or wrong reasons, it’s not for me to say. But because of the relationship I had with the city, growing up there and playing there, it was a tough pill to swallow.” Ferner also has confidence in the Blazers’ ownership group,

which includes current and former NHLers Mark Recchi, Jarome Iginla, Shane Doan and Darryl Sydor. It is headed by Tom Gaglardi, CEO of Northland Properties, the parent company to Sandman Hotels, Denny’s Restaurants and other real estate and hospitality businesses. “It’s different just for the fact that they have private ownership,” he said. “I know all those people quite well.” Between Everett and Kamloops, Ferner spent four seasons with the Vernon Vipers, posting an impeccable 165-51-24 record, and winning three consecutive Fred Page Cup championships and two consecutive RBC Cup national titles in 2009 and 2010. The Vipers were national runners-up in 2011. “It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s very rewarding when you get a good group of kids together and they gel and they want to play for each other,” he said. Ferner, who has spent the last few weeks instructing a hockey camp with Sandy Moger at Priest Valley Arena, still has to finalize the details of his contract with the Blazers. He first had to tidy up loose ends with the Silvertips before he could formally sign with another WHL team. Meanwhile, there are still spots available for the Vipers’ annual charity golf tournament, Aug. 25 and 26 at The Rise. The $150 fee includes a ticket for the Vipers vs Salmon Arm SilverBacks BCHL exhibition game on Saturday, Aug. 25 (7 p.m.) at Kal Tire Place. It also includes entry into the Texas scramble tournament (1 p.m. shotgun start) on Sunday, Aug. 26. Golf includes dinner, prizes, tee gift, silent auction and autograph session. Confirmed for the tourney are Aaron Volpatti of the Washington Capitals and Jerred Smithson, a free agent formerly with the Edmonton Oilers. Tournament proceeds go to Greater Vernon KidSport and the local RBC Cup committee. To register, contact Lee Ranger by phoning 250-545-7425, or e-mailing Or call the Viper office at 250542-6022.

Thunder looking for series sweep Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Brodie MacDonald was supposed to get the night off Thursday as the Langley Thunder hosted the Coquitlam Adanacs in Western Lacrosse Association playoff action. MacDonald, 23, was pressed into play after starting goalie Nick Rose was given a game misconduct 5:55 into the first period for illegal use of equipment. A Vernon Tigers’ grad, MacDonald made 30 saves as Langley clipped the Adanacs 9-7 to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven semifinal series. Game 4 went Saturday night in MacDonald Coquitlam. Adam Jones and Shayne Jackson each scored twice for Langley, while Brett Hickey supplied four goals for the Adanacs. Adam Shule took the loss with 31 stops. MacDonald recorded 38 saves as the Thunder iced the host Adanacs 8-6 Tuesday night. Dane Dobbie pocketed 2+1 for Langley, while Garrett Billings earned first star with 1+4 and Athan Iannucci bagged 1+3. Mark Matthews, Alex Turner, Jones and Brett Mydske added singles at the Sports Centre. Coquitlam got four goals from Daryl Veltman, 1+3 from Hickey and one goal from Travis Cornwall. Adam Shule made 32 saves. Meanwhile, the host Victoria Shamrocks used three goals each from Corey Small and Brody Eastwood to sink the Burnaby Lakers 17-3 in Game 3 of their semifinal Friday on Vancouver Island. The Shamrocks, who hold a 3-0 lead, clipped the Lakers 12-11 Wednesday night. Game 4 of that set goes tonight in Burnaby.

The Westlake Tire/Arrowhead Electric Ogopogos played for bronze in men’s soccer at the World Masters Games Saturday in Torino, Italy. The Ogopogos, playing with 10.5 men (thanks to retired teacher-turned-medic Marty Stein taping up injured players), fell 2-0 to Vancouver United in their Friday semifinal tilt. They managed to hold the previously undefeated Vancouver side scoreless into the second half. Meanwhile, the Vernon Controllers were quarterfinalists in the women’s over 40 division at the Games. They fell to the Halton Vipers of Ontario in a shootout after ending regulation 1-1. The Controllers’ Jacquie Nuyens set up Jennie Currie, who, on a great second effort, beat the defender and the goalie to open scoring. The Vipers replied when a forward got behind the Vernon defence and beat Michelle Embleton top shelf. Controllers’ coach Doug MacDonald praised Embleton, Val Percy, Jody Pope, Brandie Hunter, Michele Wernicke, Leslie Epp, Michelle Mercer, Nuyens, Felicia O’Gorman, Angela Durfeld, Currie, Jodi Hawthorne, Sherry Kineshanko and Krista Backer for representing Vernon well, both on and off the field. In other over 40 action, North Okanagan United ended its Italian tour Friday with a 2-0 loss to the Ottawa Falcons. On Thursday, United played another Ottawa team to a scoreless draw in regulation, and then secured a 2-0 win in the shootout. First up for NOU was Federica Tamaglini, who put a hard shot left of keeper. Next, Andrea Zubot scored a low pass into the right corner. NOU keeper, Aussie Abigail Noli, made spectacular saves all night long to keep the shutout. In the women’s over 50 division, NOU came ready for action, but their opponent was a no-show as they settled for a forfeit win to end their run at the Games Friday. NOU secured fifth place after their scheduled tilt against the Vancouver Rockies was cancelled because the Lower Mainland team opted to get a head start on its sightseeing. Earlier in the week, United suffered a pair of 2-0 losses, the first to Copa USA on Tuesday, the second to San Diego on Wednesday. The NOU girls worked hard to keep the score down in both games, while Darlene Weise had a good workout in net.

Beach duo delivers Morning Star Staff

Avery Bridge of Vernon and Quinci Birker of Kelowna were the top local finishers at a B.C. Volleyball High Performance beach tournament last weekend in Coquitlam. The tourney featured competitors from six different zones in B.C. The provincial teamers had been training under Tammy Thomas of T2 Volleyball for the past four weeks. The Thompson-Okanagan Zone was well represented, fielding four girls teams and one boys team. After earning a bye into the semifinal by posting five straight-set wins in the round-robin, Bridge and Birker won their semifinal in straight sets. The duo earned a silver medal after losing to a strong Vancouver entry in the final. The Thompson Okanagan team also comprised of Natalie Livingston with Grace Frieheit, Nick Prystupa with Tanner Thiessen, Vicki Schley (Vernon) with Amanda Hardy and Tanner Lorenson (Vernon) with Danae Shephard.

Matejicka magic Morning Star Staff

John Matejicka pulled the hat trick as the Silver Stars outlasted West Kelowna 6-4 in Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League action Thursday night at Constable Neil Bruce Field. Stevie Coombs blasted two from long distance in the thriller. Boris Pasieka enjoyed a stellar showing on the Stars’ back line. In other 50s play, Summerland FC shelled Vernon Kal Tire 6-2 at Reiswig Park in Lake Country. Bill Clark, his son Josh and Eduardo Cacace each supplied a deuce for Summerland, while Kevin Mitchell, on a top-cheese shot from 15 yards, and Denis Chabot, on a magical dipsy-doodle through four defenders, replied for Kal Tire (13-4). Midfielder Rob Parkin was the Dairy Queen Man of the Match for the Tiremen. Meanwhile, the Sunterra Custom Homes Sistas grounded Capri Insurance 7-2 in women’s Division 2 play Thursday night at Marshall #2. Sarah Ehman pocketed the opening Sunterra goal, assisted by Cassandra Otto and Deanna Baker. The second goal was the start of Amy Fitchett’s natural hat trick, and it came from a nice pass up the line from rookie defender Amanda Gaythorpe, handled well by Ehman. Fitchett shot from outside the 18 over the keeper’s head. Fitchett then buried a feed from Nicole Williams, and got her hatty by popping one over the keeper after a pass by Gaythorpe. Tanya Wirachowsky fired the fifth goal off a free kick by Fitchett. Otto earned the sixth tally off a feed from keeper-turned-forward Susan August. The final Sunterra goal was the result of nice short passing between Kim Sylvester and Becky Birbilis, with Birbilis finding net. The Green Rockets

brushed off Centerline Attack 4-2 at Marshall #4 with Anna Clarke producing two snipes. Leah Willinger and Dana Dimmick added singles for the Rockets in the fun-filled match. Rachel Cross made some great saves, while Shantelle Price and Brittany Chase displayed fancy footwork. Centerline’s defence made it very hard for the Rockets to break through. Dimmick is sorry to see the Rockets’ first season coming to an end next week. “We started out not knowing each other’s names and now we are playing as a team and have made some great friendships along the way,” said Dimmick. Centerline started with only seven players and finished with 10, getting two goals from Emily Sapsford. Keeper duties were shared by Kris Ponto and Azra Cawley. The Sir Winston’s Lady of the Match was sweeper/ stopper Megan Mackus. Centreline got strong defensive games by Mandy Norwood and Tessa Derksen. In Division 1 play Thursday night, the NET Celtics clipped the AF Blazers 2-1 at Marshall #3. The Celtics opened the scoring when Carly Smith flicked on a Karmin Nijjar corner kick to Tori Reid, who was well positioned to knock it in. The shorthanded Blazers displayed a solid team effort, with Amanda Swales scoring by using great control to take up space and convert from 30 yards. Early in the second half, star midfielder Jodi Bariesheff hammered a shot from outside the 18, and Maddy Demers calmly slotted home the rebound. The Blazers’ Hailey Woon, Krista Ference and Shantell Hayhurst used there speed on the forward line to push for the equalizer, but were unable to convert on several quality chances. Jenny Hatten, Amber Altwasser and Nicole Stensrude played awe-

some two-way games in the midfield. Amber Maltman, Swales and Janna Cummings were outstanding on defence in support of keeper Katie Hatten. Dr. Lee Dental took advantage of shortstaffed Glenn Power of Salmon Arm and cruised to a 4-0 win at Marshall #5. Sun Valley Source for Sports Lady of the Match Jennesa Moore scored once and set up Delinah Erbenich for two snipes, as the 14-31 Floss crew controlled much of the play. Stephanie Wilson, with mom Barb watching from the sidelines, converted a 20-yard free kick for the other goal. Lori Shippy ran miles in the midfield, supported by Jill Rintoul and Irene Arrotta. Lisa Arrotta earned the clean sheet.

Kids and seniors share a picnic

Morning Star Staff

Picnics are always enjoyable — having food and drinks in the fresh air  and watching children at play. That is how the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre’s intergenerational picnic turned out, when 14 children  met  with  20 seniors  in Oval Park in Lumby. “The centre co-ordinated


the picnic to bridge the generations of Lumby through activities, food, and fun,” said Gay Jewitt, Whitevalley executive director. “The interaction between the two groups was a pleasure to watch.” The event consisted of lunch, and stories behind various items during show-andtell.

“My favourite part was meeting all of the kids, just being out here, and happy that the children are encouraged to speak so freely,” said senior Noella Savoie. Joan Dew, another senior, added that, “The children are so intelligent.” The goal is to have another intergenerational picnic next year.

“The picnic was a great success,” said Jewitt. Presently, the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre is trying to raise $800,000 over five years to create an endowment so there is stable funding for programs. For more information about the fundraising campaign, go to or call 250-547-8866.

Protecting the vulnerable

s I have mentioned in a previous column I live in a mobile home park in Vernon. It is a community of seniors with varying abilities who interact with one another regularly, usually stopping to chat, or wave, or call out good morning. Not everyone is best friends, or wants to be, but generally everyone is friendly. Recently we have had the good fortune to become the home of other residents who roam Pat Black the park at will, eating our petunias or nibbling at vegetation and allowing us to stand in awe and admire them and take pictures to send to less fortunate inhabitants. Yes, we have a family of deer who parade in the early morning or in the evening, browsing our plants and shrubs and moseying slowly between and behind our homes. It is truly astounding and we all appreciate this gift of nature, binding us together to admire our guests while keeping a respectful distance as well. There is a big doe, a slightly smaller buck with two-prong antlers and two spotted fauns. There had been three fauns but one, I heard from a neighbor,

personal best

was hit by a car crossing the road and died. There are ravines close by that run up to the forested foothills and I think that is how they travel about. They are in no hurry and do not appear to be the least bit upset by the groupies following them, cameras raised on high. The deer know somehow they are safe, reflecting the whole atmosphere in this park where most of us feel the same way. Not so safe are long-term care homes in this country as revealed by a recent ground-breaking W5 investigation into resident-on-resident abuse in these homes. The investigation revealed that these attacks are far more common than ever thought: more than 10,000 “incidents” across Canada in one year. After filing access to information requests with 38 provincial and regional health authorities, W5 received hundreds of documents detailing residenton-resident attacks, everything from pushing and slapping to extreme violence. W5 tells us that the 10,000-plus figure astounds experts. Well it certainly astounds me and repels me to think that this is happening to so many vulnerable seniors who are supposed to be in a safe environment. Can you imagine how society would react if this abuse were happening to 10,000 children in care homes each year? We would all be up in arms,

but seniors – yawn! What are we doing in B.C. to address this issue of safety in our residential facilities? Well on Feb. 14, 2012 the BC Ombudsperson released Public Report No. 47 The Best of Care: Getting it Right for Seniors in British Columbia (Part 2). This 400-plus page report is the Ombudsperson’s final report on the office’s three year investigation into the care of seniors in British Columbia. It is a comprehensive and in-depth report that makes 143 findings and 176 recommendations. One of the key recommendations was “Protecting seniors through consistent reporting and tracking of abuse and neglect.” The Ombudsperson’s office is tracking the responses to the recommendations and how they are being implemented. As of June 2013, the office reports that the Interior Health Authority in response to Recommendation29 — “The health authorities track the number of incidents of abuse and neglect investigated in their region and the number of support and assistance plans implemented in response to their investigations of these reports” — has received no specific response to this recommendation. Guess we aren’t doing anything, again. If you have any questions or comments you can reach me at 250 542-7928 or e-mail

Activity Horoscope By Bernice Bede OsOl

Take advantage of any opportunities to increase your knowledge in your chosen field of endeavor in the coming months. Although finding time to study might be quite difficult, it will prove worth it in the long run. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Though you are likely to be an “old softy” today, to achieve anything of significance, you might have to be a bit more thickskinned than usual. Try to find a balance between nice and efficient.

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. 111223

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It isn’t likely that you will appreciate being told what to do and when and how to do it, so it’s best to avoid associates who always try to impose their ways on you. Defuse conflicts before they start. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Someone you know socially could turn out to be a pretty tough customer when engaged in business. Limit your expectations about getting any “great deals” from him or her, and don’t take anything personally. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you’re negotiating a matter of considerable importance, it might be wise to have a capable someone serve as a buffer. You may not do so well one-on-one. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If some of your assignments and responsibilities are being rearranged, don’t volunteer to take on more than you can handle. You’ll be much more help if you’re realistic. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If the root cause of your discomfort has yet to be eradicated, try to avoid a group in which certain members make you feel uneasy. If you don’t, your problem will only grow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Don’t rely on Lady Luck to bail you out of choppy waters. Instead of rooting for you, she might help others trip you up even more. It would be better to rely on your own resources. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Forgo any temptations to boast about or exaggerate your accomplishments.

Instead of looking good in the eyes of others, you might achieve just the opposite. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Financial mistakes could have a larger price than you’re prepared to pay, so you may need to be especially careful when it comes to your money. Don’t take any risks. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Usually, you appreciate the value of compromise and the wisdom of making concessions. Today, however, you might dig in on an issue that deeply moves you.

Local athletes bring home medals Morning Star Staff

The 2013 Special Olympics B.C. (SOBC) Summer Games in Langley July 11 to 13 had more than 1,100 B.C. and Yukon athletes competing in 11 sports and were a remarkable demonstration of true sportsmanship, dedication, and joy. SOBC-Vernon had eight athletes participating in three different sports, bringing

home a total of 18 medals. “Our athletes worked hard throughout the training season and demonstrated a strong will to learn and grow,” said Sheryl Friesen, track and field head coach. “The games were a tremendous success on all fronts; our athletes brought home three gold, one bronze medal in track and field, eight gold, three silver and two bronze

medals in aquatics and in one in silver in powerlifting.” While Special Olympics Games are about sport, achievement and pride, they are also about friendship, connections, acceptance, and sportsmanship. “It was inspiring to see how the athletes congratulated each other and that not the medal counted but the participation —

everyone can learn from this,” said Friesen. Special Olympics BC-Vernon provides 14 high-quality sports program for individuals of all ages with intellectual disabilities, from September until July, and is always looking for more participants, and volunteers to run their programs. For more information please go to: www.

Special Olympics Vernon gets ready for a new season Morning Star Staff

The sports programs offered by Special Olympics here in Vernon are starting a new season and the more than 100 participants are ready to go. “There is a sport for everyone, from the popular bowling and soccer, to powerlifting and skiing. All of our athletes love to win at competitions but they are also proud of their accomplishments and skills,” says Noelle Typusiak a member of the SOBC-Vernon board. “When they see themselves improving it builds their self esteem, which reflects into their social life with family and friends. The impact is amazing, I see it every day.”

The society strives to enrich lives, and celebrates personal achievement through positive sport experiences. “We are always trying to extend our programs for our 100+ athletes and the goal is to keep them physically active every day throughout the year,” said program coordinator Heidi Borgeaud. “We added a high intensity training session in our popular Club Fit Program for those athletes that need an extra challenging workout for their winter or summer sport.” SOBC-Vernon is always looking for new athletes to join

them, with a great selection of sports for children, youth and adults of all ages. The upcoming registration night will be a social event for all athletes before the fall training starts. Registration night for the 14 winter and summer sports will take place Aug. 26 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Dorothy Alexander Centre. Refreshments and snacks will be served and the coaches are available with information about their sport. Those who are interested to volunteer as a coach or in other positions for the charity are welcome to attend. For more information, see or call 250-306-8954.

BC Children’s Hospital’s of Argyll School will dance for money for the children’s hospital. HOW TO DONATE:

There are two ways to donate money for Dancer for Cancer. One way is to come by the studio on August 23 money into the donation box outside the studio, or you can pledge money online at WHAT ELSE:

ous pension plans, and guaranteed social security. We are wealthiest because we found reliable jobs directly after high school or we paid for our post secondary education at a fraction of today’s cost. We bought our first home cheaply only to see that initial investment debt mushroom into a surplus as property values increased. The boomers are living longer because of modern medicine and the many advancements in medical therapy that offset the afflictions of old age. As a result, we have more retirement funds than any previous generation and the health to enjoy them. Along the way, we have taken more than our fair share from the system and the planet and left less for the generations that follow. The boomers are a generation that ignores death simply because we are too busy enjoying our luck, wealth and health. The sad reality is that we, too, will die. From the first breath, we share the same inexorable pathway to life’s end. I am a boomer, but I do think about death because I have seen death more often than

most. In three decades as an MD, I have witnessed the ephemeral nature of life, and the cumulative experiences have provoked sober thought and sometimes painful reflection. In my 30s I composed a will, revised it when the children came, and will keep it up to date as the future unfolds. My husband and I have had conversations about dying. We have given each other permission to move on should the other die, to remarry, or at least not to end life alone. In spite of thinking I had dealt responsibly with the business of dying, I have recently discovered that there are parts of death that I had not considered. To my surprise, the epiphany occurred in a cemetery at a time when I have never felt more alive. This summer in Paris I visited Pere Lachaise, a serene

Are over-the-counter products safe for your Pets? Over the counter medications can ease pain and suffering for us but do they have a place in our pet’s medicine chest? People pop over the counter medication so routinely that they often do not consider if it is safe for their pet. Your veterinarian will take into account your pet’s age, health status and whether or not over the counter medication would be a suitable treatment. Ibuprofen (Advil) and acetaminophen (Tylenol) are two of the most common pet poisons if used inappropriately. Side effects can result when using these drugs. Common concerns associated with use of these products are gastrointestinal upset, vomiting, and in some cases liver and/or kidney damage. Pet owners should always remember that if their pet is already on prescribed medication adding an over the counter drug may cause adverse reactions. Dosage is extremely important as well, since dogs and cats metabolize drugs differently than humans. What may seem like a standard dose for us may well be toxic to your pet. So with this in mind, consult your veterinarian before using any over the counter medications.

140-acre cemetery in a city of 11 million, and the final resting place of many legends and heroes. I was there to visit, among others, Jimmy Morrison’s grave. Morrison is a touchstone for my youth long gone and I wanted a moment to recall a magic time before he tragically died in a Paris hotel. What I did not expect to find there were the young men who also came to pay their respects. I found them in the early hours, kneeling silently at Morrison’s headstone while they played Light My Fire on their iPhones. Born decades after Morrison’s passing, these young men needed to bear witness to a time in history that they did not share, but wished to remember. I walked the uneven cobbled pathways past the winged sepulcher of Oscar Wilde and took a minute to thank him for making me laugh. Edith Piaf was alone, and I could imagine the strains of her beautiful music inside my head. Chopin was not far away and I marveled at his genius and industry. The rich legacy that is the body of his work was accomplished in the 40 odd summers he spent on this planet. Interspersed among the famous people buried in Pere Lachaise, are many ordinary folk — the spouses, children and parents of ordinary Parisians. I watched family members quietly tend the graves of their loved ones. It was these small acts by ordinary citizens that led to my epiphany.

I have never been in favour of burial after death, but in Pere Lachaise I could see and feel the benefits of a cemetery. A gravesite is not a place for the dead, but for the living. It is a physical place to reconnect with a loved one. As I walked Pere Lachaise in the peace and quiet, I wished that I could visit my own mother in the same way. I recalled being 21 and for the first time, being taken to my father’s grave. No one in my family had taken me before, so raw was their own sense of loss for this man, my father dead at 26, a man I can barely recall. I witnessed their grief, but for me, the visit brought a certain peace. Although I have not visited my father for many years, I did replace the weathered headstone last year, and the act provided me some small comfort. That day in Paris I thought about my parents, and I thought about my husband and myself. And then the questions came. What if my husband died and I remained? Where would we talk if he were cremated? If I needed his advice, how would I reach him if he were scattered on the wind? On a cobbled path in Pere Lachaise I realized with clarity and intensity, a personal desire previously unknown. Should I outlive my husband, I would want to bury him in such a place as this, a solid place, one that I could visit, one that would be a touchstone for the memories of a life shared, a place to anchor my experiences with him in a present and future I faced alone.

Joice M. Hall’s oil on canvas, High Light, 2013 is one of the works featured in Headbones Gallery’s show, Thaumaturgy, AKA Okanagan Wonders, which opens Thursday and runs until Sept. 22.

Headbones celebrates Okanagan magic oft used metaphor, wonder stands in for the works included in OK Thaumaturgy, AKA Okanagan Wonders. OK Thaumaturgy is an occasion to enjoy a great bewitching.” In order to include artists from throughout the Okanagan and Shuswap — such as Steve Mennie from Salmon Arm and Glenn Clark from Penticton — Headbones’ inclusive boundaries stretch out. During the run of the exhibition, on Sept. 15, Patricia Ainslie (curator emeritus of the Glenbow Museum, Calgary) will launch her book Okanagan Artists in their Studios.

Hall’s or Ann Kipling’s landscapes, be reference to actual Okanagan places, but regardless of subject matter, the results brought forth from the creative process of artists in proximity is wonderful.” From the large colour field painting of Heidi Thompson to the self portrait of Glenn Clark in his studio as a nude model poses upon a stand, the styles are wide-ranging. “The high consistency of execution, authenticity and individual vision particular to each work is the resulting magic,” said Oakes. Collins English Dictionary defines thaumaturgy as the performance of miracles or magic. “Many specific spells have been cast by this collection of magicians and although an

The Scattered Atoms Quartet (with guest vocalist Kira from Earthbound) leave their Kamloops base for a show at Lorenzo’s Cafe Aug. 24. The jazz/funk band will perform classic blues and soul tunes plus some swinging Latin numbers and a little bit of old school funk to shake the foundations out in Ashton Creek. “For the last six years, we’ve been developing a more jazz oriented sound, but the rule has remained groove, groove, groove,” said guitarist Jon Treichel. For details on the show, call Lorenzo’s at 250-838-6700.

The Lounge is throwing a party Morning Star Staff

The Downtown Internet Lounge is celebrating its second anniversary next weekend with a party while at the same time raising money for a good cause. “We’re raising money for an organization that we feel does a great deal for the youth of our community,” said co-owner Josh Brazier. “Keeping up with our tradition, we’re going to be donating the equivalent of our weekend sales to the Boys and Girls Club in free time and month passes. “We did this last year but the response we’ve had and the stories they’ve passed on made them an easy selection as this year’s recipient.” Brazier said the free time will allow the Boys and Girls Club to bring in various age groups to play some of the more family friendly games at the Lounge, particularly Minecraft. “Minecraft is definitely one of the most popular games at our shop,” said Brazier. “If you’re not familiar with it, it’s basically an endless world which allows players to build and create almost anything the mind can envision.” He added that the Lounge hands out passes on a monthly basis to one of the participants involved with the Boys and Girls Club. “It acts almost as a positive reinforcement for those setting the right example to others in the program,” said Brazier. “In today’s day and age, it seems like penalizing or disciplining people is the norm, so it’s rather refreshing to see good behavior and positive attitudes rewarded and we’re quite pleased to play a small role in that.” The Downtown Internet Lounge will donate every dollar it makes from 10 a.m. Aug. 16 to 10 p.m. Aug. 18, matched in the form of free time and onemonth passes. “We invite all of our customers and anyone interested in supporting the Vernon Boys and Girls Club to pop down and support a great cause.”

Free cake will also be served at 2 p.m. on Aug. 17. As well, a draw for a free month pass will be held — participants can enter the draw Aug. 16 to 18. No purchase is necessary, and the winner will be contacted the morning of Aug. 19. The Downtown Internet Lounge is at 2913-39th Ave., downtown Vernon. For more details, call 778-4755666.

HEALTH TIP brought to you by your Pharmasave Pharmacist kyle brewer

we’ve been hearing for years that a needle-free injection device will soon be on the market. well, the scientists at MIT have developed one which delivers a microscopically thin stream of medicine under high pressure through the skin and into the tissue. It is still being tested but will hopefully be available in a year or two. There appears to be a link between the amount of sugar we consume and our blood pressure. One easy way of cutting sugar consumption is to reduce the number of sugar-drinks you consume daily. even reducing by one can help. reducing our daily calorie intake can produce a multitude of health benefits. Start today. It’s always interesting to read about how health affects some famous people. beethoven, for example, used fewer higher notes in his later compositions as his deafness increased. Analyses of his string quartets found he used fewer notes above G in his later quartets because he couldn’t hear them. In england, more and more people are successfully quitting smoking. The National Health Services Stop Smoking program in 2011-2012 reported that 800,000 people set a quit date with 49% being successful which is a 5% increase in success from 2010 - 2011 and a whopping 235% increase over 2001 - 2002. It can be done. Pharmacists can help smokers quit with smoking cessation programs. we’d love to talk to you about what’s available to help you with your decision to stop. you and your family won’t regret it.

Software eases payroll process Graeme Corbett Business Editor

When Evan Drury came to Vernon to work in a bookkeeping office two years ago, he was shocked by the systems that were in place for processing payrolls. Drury knew there had to be a better way. “It’s such a tedious, manual process,” he said. “It’s 2011, so there has to be software that does it automatically. I did research and research and research, and there wasn’t. I was shocked.” Teaming up with Vernon’s Al Jensen, Drury developed a software solution called Payroll Connected. There are similar payroll systems available, but none quite as specific as this one. Like other software programs, Payroll Connected incorporates both payroll and employee scheduler functions into one bundle. But what makes it stand out is that it incorporates B.C.’s labour laws into the programming. The generic competing products simply don’t account for this. The challenge, said Jensen, is that labour laws vary from province to province. For instance, he said the standard work week in B.C. is 40 hours, whereas in Alberta it is 44. That makes a difference when it comes to calculating overtime. “If you’re a B.C. company, this works with B.C. labour laws,” said Jensen, the account manager. “We’re the only software that can boast that.” Incorporating those labour law intricacies, along with all the other software features, is part of the reason it took Drury two years to develop the program. He and Jensen plan to expand Payroll Connected east, going province by province. They are currently in beta testing in Alberta. In using Payroll Connected, the first thing employers need to do is enter their employee information, including rate of pay and position, and then input their work schedules. In order to process a payroll, the employer enters in a pay period end date, and the program does the rest. Using the scheduler (which already has the employee pay rates set — Al in), it is able to calculate regular time, overtime, vacation pay, statutory holiday pay, bonuses, plus federal and provincial tax deductions. It also handles ROEs and T4s. Once complete, the program creates a

Jensen said many businesses today either handle payroll internally, hire a bookkeeper, or outsource to a processing company. He said it can be a hassle, especially for small business owners. “You’re dealing with enough stuff as a small business owner, and that’s what this is for,” he said. “This is for the Jensen business owner that’s got 50 hats to wear.” Drury said Payroll Connected could work for companies with as many as 1,000 employees, but noted that because they charge on a per-employee basis, it also works

“You’re dealing with enough stuff as a small business owner, and that’s what this is for.”

for small business. He also demonstrated that Payroll Connected is fast compared to conventional methods. The software is capable of processing data for 100 employees in about three minutes. “That process usually takes a day and a half (if done manually),” he said. “With everybody else, there’s somebody sitting there doing it, and making human error mistakes.” While it might take business owners a while to learn the software, Drury believes his program will save companies time and money in the long run. “Paying your employees should be one of the simplest things you have to worry about as a business owner,” he said.

Payroll Connected is also flexible in terms of scheduling. Employers are able to view and edit the schedule at any time, and can use built-in filters (such as employee, department or location) to refine a search. Schedules can also be adjusted for instances such as sick days and shift swaps. Payroll Connected allows employers to review the payroll for any errors before it is finalized and wages are dispersed. Once it is processed, the program locks the payroll for that pay period and doesn’t allow for further editing. “As far as Revenue Canada goes, you have a solid record of everything your business did,” said Drury, noting Payroll Connected will always be updated to reflect current federal and provincial regulations.

Avoid the wedding blues


any brides and grooms have a special wedding song that becomes the tuneful touchstone of their new partnership. And because we’re now deep into the peak marriage season (according to Statistics Canada, there are close to 67,000 weddings across Canada during June, July and August), this is a great time to take a look at the best financial planning strategies for brides and grooms, so you and your new partner won’t end up having your special wedding song drowned out by the wedding bill blues. Here’s how to cope with wedding costs. Look beyond the hors Andy Erickson d’oeuvres and Champagne, and instead at your long-term financial life. Plan for a terrific wedding within a reasonable, affordable budget, and discuss all of your goals, financial and otherwise. Avoid the lingering costs of a plastic wedding. Put your credit cards away. Pay for your wedding with money you’ve saved, and don’t pay from your investments or retirement fund or you’ll end up paying for your wedding for many, many years. As an example, if you ring up your credit card with $25,000 in wedding expenses, at 14 per cent interest and only make the minimum payment each month, you’ll make your final payment on your 100th anniversary. Stick to your wedding budget. It’s easy to suffer from the wedding budget bulge, but be strong. And while you’re practising prudence, why not set other financial goals. n Here’s a simple budget template to get you going (write down the figures): n How much debt is each of us bringing to our marriage? n How much money have we saved so far? n What is our combined monthly income

CREDIBILITY IMPORTANT IN INJURY CASES By Janice Mucalov, LL.B. If you’ve been hurt in a car crash, your credibility is extremely important in proving your claim for damages – especially if your injury is a “whiplash” or soft tissue injury. With a whiplash, there may be no objective evidence. Your subjective reports of pain and limited movement may be the only “proof ” of your injury. It’s essential that you are honest and don’t exaggerate or inflate the effects of the accident. The defence (i.e., ICBC) may challenge your credibility. Darryl Driscoll faced such a challenge in a recent court case. Driscoll provided lawn maintenance services. As a result of a motor vehicle accident, he suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck, right shoulder and back, which affected his ability to work and his enjoyment of life.

“should be exceedingly careful when there is little or no objective evidence of continuing injury and when complaints of pain persist for long periods extending beyond the normal or usual recovery.” In Driscoll’s case, the court said that his testimony and evidence was “generally reliable.” Even though he often overstated the facts, this was due to a tendency to speak in extreme statements, not because he was trying to mislead the court. For his pain and suffering, Driscoll received $55,000 (the defence argued he should only get between $10,000 to $20,000). For his past loss of income, he received $30,000 (the defence position was that this amount should be between $5,000 to $10,000). He also received $60,000 for future lost income (the defence claimed he wasn’t entitled to anything for this).

He called four witnesses – himself, his wife and two men who had worked for him. However, in another recent case, He also relied on the written a young woman’s credibility reports of a family doctor was tripped up by her own who saw him at a walk-in Facebook pictures. She claimed Thomas D.A. clinic, a specialist in physical $40,000 in pain and suffering Fletcher Q.C. medicine and rehabilitation, for a whiplash injury, testifying and an occupational therapist. at trial that she could no longer The defence relied mainly on kayak, hike or bicycle. The 10 hours’ of surveillance videotapes of defence contradicted this by producing Driscoll, arguing that his injuries were less photos posted on her Facebook page severe than he reported, based on what the showing her doing these exact activities. videotapes showed. The court assessed her damages at $3,500. The court cited the earlier case of Price v. Kostryba as a reminder of how to assess injuries that depend on subjective reports of pain. The judge in that case said: “The assessment of damages in a moderate or moderately severe whiplash injury is always difficult because plaintiffs, as in this case, are usually genuine, decent people who honestly try to be as objective and as factual as they can.” But, added the judge, courts

planes serving the Maasai Mara. Somehow it all fits. A colonial start to a decidedly colonial experience. The little airport is packed with tripods and lenses the size of rocket-launchers — and their khaki-clad owners. The Maasai Mara Reserve is 1,500 square kilometers. It contains one of the biggest lion densities in the world. Between July and October, two million wildebeest, topi, zebras and Thomson gazelles will up-sticks and migrate to the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania. Crocodiles and hyenas will pick off the laggards. The atmosphere in our little plane is electric. We pass over Maasai herders keeping a tight rein on their cattle. Cameras click. Animals scatter, scared of our moving shadow. There are thought to be 800 elephants in the reserve but despite increased patrols, poaching is still a major problem. Tiny airstrips pepper the land below. We put down a couple of times to drop passengers off, before reaching our destination. The pricier the camp, the grander the welcome.

Flush toilets for goodness sake. Want a shower after a long game drive? No problem! Josephat will radio ahead. The system will go into overdrive. A chap will magically appear with buckets of hot water, haul them up the pole and wait until they have drained through the shower head inside. How brilliant is that? There are a couple more details to be sorted out with the camp staff before we set off: What do we want for sundowners? I go with a gin and tonic and sis is predictably back on the vodka! Do we want coffee or tea delivered in the morning? Do we want a bush breakfast and lunch? And yes, we are assured that hot water bottles are standard fare and that Josephat is ours for the duration. “Just tell him when you want to leave and return.” It’s truly all about us.

Labrador heritage site goes global ed kirby Special To The Morning Star

LABRADOR — The 16th century Basque whaling complex at Red Bay in southeastern Labrador is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It joins the geological wonders of Gros Morne National Park and the 11th century Viking village at L’Anse aux Meadows in being awarded this prestigious designation. There are only 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Canada, and Newfoundland and Labrador has three of them. Gros Morne and L’Anse aux Meadows are only a few hours apart on Newfoundland’s west coast, while Red Bay is a two-hour ferry ride and an hour’s drive from Newfoundland’s northwest coast, so it’s easy to see all three on the same trip. Red Bay had been declared a National Historic Site of Canada in 1979. The remains of what was one of the first large industrial opera-

tions in Canada had lain hidden for centuries until researcher Selma Barkham combed the Basque archives in Spain in the ‘60s and ‘70s, putting together evidence that led to the discovery of Red Bay’s long-forgotten history. Many years of archaeological work, both on land and in the harbour, followed Barkham’s discovery. Among the finds was the 1978 discovery of the wreck of a loaded galleon, probably the San Juan, which sank in the 1560s. A smaller boat, a chalupa, was also discovered and preserved, and is one of the prime artifacts on display at the site, which is managed by Parks Canada. On nearby Saddle Island, lie the remains of scores of whalers who died far from their homeland between 1550 and 1620, the heyday of Basque whaling. Here, too, are found red clay roof tiles that speak of the southwestern European origins of the people

who worked here. The whales that drew the Basques across the ocean still ply these waters, but these days are ogled by fascinated travelers, not hunted for their blubber.

The harbour will see the name San Juan again in 2016 when a recreation of the vessel will visit Canada to help mark the Basque capital city of San Sebastian as the cultural capital of

Our first jaunt is a huge success. Leopard, cheetah, a large herd of elephants hacking at the few remaining trees around.

Whether you’re spending your summer vacation relaxing in your backyard or adventuring into the B.C. wilderness, the B.C. SPCA wants to show off your best B.C. wildlife pictures. Amateur photographers can enter the fifth annual Wildlife-InFocus photography contest by submitting digital photos until Sept. 30. The contest is a fundraiser supporting the society’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC) on southern Vancouver Island, where more than 2,500 orphaned and injured wild animals are cared for every year. “With the nation’s greatest diversity of wildlife in our own province, we are excited to help backyard and amateur photographers showcase these amazing animals,” said Sara Dubois, manager of wildlife services for the B.C. SPCA. Some of the photos entered in previous contests have been featured in the BC SPCA’s AnimalSense and Bark! magazines, local newspapers and even a book City Critters: Wildlife in the Urban Jungle, authored by local journalist Nicholas Read. Prizes will be awarded for the top three photos in each of two categories: Wild Settings and Backyard Habitats. The contest is open to all adult (age 14 years and up) backyard and amateur photographers residing in B.C. Learn more about this year’s contest and see winners from past contests at The annual contest encourages participants to explore greenspaces, roadsides, beaches and even backyards to find striking images that represent the resiliency of local wildlife living at the interface with humans. Wildlife includes freeliving birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and insects, but not exotic, feral or domestic animals, or wildlife in zoos or rehabilitation facilities.

Sockeye run low Tom FleTcher Black Press

Commercial and sport sockeye fishing remained closed on the Fraser River system this week, as the Pacific Salmon Commission reported a lower than expected return of fish in what was already expected to be a poor return year. Based on the latest test fisheries, the commission’s Fraser River Panel upgraded its forecast of early summer-run sockeye from 400,000 to 452,000 fish. The following summer run “is either lower than forecast or their migration timing is much later than expected,” the joint Canada-U.S. panel reported this week. The proportion of late-run sockeye through ocean approach areas has increased in recent days. The late run is expected to be dominated by Birkinhead, Weaver and Late Shuswap sockeye, with some from the Portage and Cultus Lake systems. Water level and temperature in the Fraser system is another concern, after a dry early summer. As of Monday, Fraser River water discharge at Hope was 26 per cent lower than average for that date. The temperature was 20.5 degrees, 2.8 degrees higher than average, a condition that would risk high pre-spawning death if it continues. The 2013 run is the next in the four-year

After only one million came back, the federal government appointed Justice Bruce Cohen to head a commission of

inquiry on the state of Fraser sockeye. As the inquiry was hearing testimony, the 2010 run came in at an unusually high 35 million fish, reflecting the complexity of the system that sustains Pacific salmon.

The Cohen commission found overall declines in most west coast rivers starting in the late 1980s, from Washington state to the Fraser, Skeena and Nass in B.C., Yukon’s Klukshu and Alaska’s Alsek River.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder DEDUCE THE DANGER TO YOUR CONTRACT Confucius, whose real name was Kong Qiu, said, “He who learns but does not think is lost. He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.” Bridge players who do not think lose a lot of contracts unnecessarily. Bridge players who think but do not wonder about what might go wrong will also lose some contracts. In today’s deal, South is in six spades. How should he play after West leads the heart queen around to declarer’s ace? Would South’s best play be different if dummy had only K-5-4 of spades? I strongly approve of North’s three-club positive response, showing eight-

plus points and five or more clubs. (When responder, holding a strong hand, begins with two diamonds waiting, he either never shows his full strength or is forced to take control.) On the third round, after North raised spades, South used the Grand Slam Force, asking partner to bid seven with two of the top three spade honors. (Nowadays, this convention has almost died out because Roman Key-Card Blackwood uncovers the top trump honors.) South can afford only one trump loser. If the spades are 3-2, there are no problems. He needs to worry about 4-1 and 5-0. The correct play is a low spade to dummy’s eight. When it loses, South wins the

next trick and leads a spade to the king, here getting home. He will be successful more than 94 percent of the time. If dummy has only K-54, South should start with dummy’s king, then play low to his 10. His chance has shrunk a tad, to nearly 90 percent.

Wally Morgan Wally died at Hospice House on August 4th at the age of 87. He was born in England and had 4 brothers who became life-long friends. After lying about his age so he could enlist in the British Navy in 1944, he sailed with the Navy to BC. He fell in love with Canada and vowed to return. He immigrated in 1952, and in 1958 he met Helene Sorensen on a tennis court in Penticton. They married in 1960 and were blessed with a long life together full of love, travel, and laughter. Adventurous, they moved back to England in 1961 where their daughter Lise was born. In 1965 they tried their hand at living in Denmark, Helene’s native country, where their son Paul was born. Wally’s attempts to learn Danish became the stuff of legend in the Sorensen family. They settled in Vernon in 1968 after deciding that Canada was where they were meant to be, and together they built a wonderful life here. Wally and Helene joined the Kalamalka Country Club in 1969 and formed friendships with other members that endure to this day. Wally was a content, easy-going man with a tremendous sense of humour and an innate ability to truly enjoy the simplest pleasures in life. Even after his cancer diagnosis in 2010 he remained happy and positive, and his quiet determined battle with cancer was an inspiration to those of us honoured to have shared that journey with him. He loved life, and he loved his family above all else. The world has lost a true old-school gentleman. Wally remains forever in the hearts of wife Helene, daughter Lise Simpson (husband Brian, children Ian and Colin) and son Paul (wife Mary, children Kristen and Kevin). In lieu of flowers, perhaps consider a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society, or the Vernon Hospice House. The family invites you to please join us in a casual Celebration of Life for Wally at the Kalamalka Country Club, on Saturday September 7th at 5 pm.

Frank will be greatly missed by his children: Shelley (Daryl) Clarke, Carolyn (Les) Camow, Jillian (Steve) Chambers and Trevor (Alison) Chambers. His grandchildren; Delton and Daylon Mosley, Kalvin and Janna Clarke and two great grandchildren Mariah and Daymian Mosley. Also to miss him are his sisters Joan (Cyril) Warriner and Mavis (Dave) Lynds. Many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Born in Trail BC to Art and Josie Chambers. Frank grew up in Port Moody, BC but spent the last 40 years in the Enderby area. He gave over 30 year’s service to the Federated Co-op in Canoe, BC. Frank was an easy going man who had lots of friends. He enjoyed many camping trips with the kids, fishing, gardening, having a beer by the fire and he loved his angel raised kids. No service will be held at this time. In Lieu of flowers a donation in Frank’s name can be sent to your local SPCA. Dad would like that. We love you dad. Have a good rest. Online condolences can be sent through Frank’s obituary at Funeral arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Service, Salmon Arm, BC

NORMAN (NORM) DOWNS It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the death of Norm Downs at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on August 3, 2013 at the age of 82. Norm passed quietly, with the love of his life Audrey, his wife of 26 years by his side. Norm joined the army in August 1950 to fight in the Korean war. He retired 24 ½ years later with the rank of Warrant Officer. He was office manager for Yukon Indian Affairs for 1 year and then was drawn to Vernon where he worked for Canada Employment and Immigration as an Employment Counselor until he retired in 1991. Norm is further survived by son Jim (Nancy) Downs of Salmon Arm; extended family Dale Major of Vancouver; Keith (Sharyl) Major of Calgary; Bruce (Kristin) Major of Topsfield Ma; grandchildren Danielle and John Downs; and step-grandchildren James and Cale Major; Michael, William, Matthew and Thomas Major. He also leaves his siblings Jim Downs of Toronto; Dorothy Godden of Waterloo; and his step brothers-in-law and sister-in-law Ralph (Carole) Hounslow; Myrt (Larry) Blake both of Vernon and Les (Norreen) Hounslow of Kamloops. There are many nieces, nephews and cousins that meant a lot to Norm. He is predeceased by his first wife Myrt, sisterin-law Pat Downs and brother-in-law Donald Godden. A funeral service will be held on August 16, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Pleasant Valley Funeral Home (4303 Pleasant Valley Road) followed by a tea at Desert Cove Rec Center (Head of the Lake Road) at 3:30 p.m. For further information please call Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.

We regret to announce the passing of

John Matthew Hollowink Aug 23, 1961 - Jul 31, 2013

Josyfat (Joe) Antoniszak

A remembrance will be held at Vernon Alliance church on Tuesday, August 13 @ 2:00pm.


There will be a tea to follow and visit with family and all are welcome to join.

BEAUREGARD Jerry Paul We are saddened to announce the passing of Jerry Beauregard on August 6th, 2013 in Vernon Hospice House. He will be sadly missed by Michelle and Kerry. We are very grateful to the staff at Hospice House and Dr. Humphreys and the staff at the Vernon Cancer Clinic for their kindness, care and compassion. Jerry was a devoted teacher for 36 years, sharing his love of the outdoors with all whose lives he touched. He celebrated life to the fullest every day and, at his request, there will be no service. Donations may be made to the Vernon Hospice House, 350627th Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4. Jerry’s legacy can be summed up by this quote of Ralph Emerson: “To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – this is to have succeeded.” Arrangements have been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. Condolences may be offered at


Joe passed away at home on August 1, 2013. He is survived by his daughter-inlaw, Donna; two grandsons, Daryll (Dahnis and Cameron) and Brian; as well as his god daughter, Mary Harasymshyn. Joe was predeceased by his wife Stefanie in 2012; his son Joseph Jr. in 2012 and son Marshall in 1979. Joe was born in Sznok, Ukraine in May 1921. In 1940 he went to Germany to work on the farms. Here he met his wife Stefanie and they were married in 1945. Joe Jr. was born shortly after. When the war finished, they immigrated to Belgium and then onto Canada in 1951, coming to BC shortly after. Joe worked in logging, sawmills, highway construction and orchards. He bought an orchard on Aberdeen Road in Coldstream in 1960. Joe and Stefanie brought their fruit to farmers’ markets throughout the Okanagan. Joe was very involved in the Ukrainian community. He was a key member of the group that built the Ukrainian Village apartments in 1975 and its management until 2012. Joe and Stefanie liked to travel in their motor home, going south for many years. In his retirement years, Joe enjoyed fishing on local lakes as well as regularly attending the A&W coffee club. Services will be held at St Josaphat’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, 2210-40th Avenue, Vernon. Prayers will be recited Friday, August 16th at 7:00 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be held Saturday, August 17th at 10:00 a.m. with interment to follow in Pleasant Valley Cemetery. A lunch will be held after at the church. Arrangements have been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. Condolences may be offered at
