The event raised funds for the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation.
Death at care facility investigated It’s a tragic case. One Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk has never encountered in his 37-year career with the RCMP as an officer and a civilian employee. A 95-year-old Vernon man is facing a murder charge after allegedly assaulting and killing his roommate, an 85-year-old Vernon man, at Vernon Jubilee Hospital’s Polson extended care facility Sunday. RCMP officers were called at 11 p.m. after the incident was reported by facility staff. The victim died of his injuries at the scene. The suspect was taken into custody. “It’s not often you have people at this age and we’re investigating a homicide,” said Molendyk. “It’s a very sad case.” Interior Health, which oversees operation of the facility, said in a written statement that Polson is a 26-bed secured dementia unit that provides care for people whose dementia is complicated by behavioural or

An 85-year-old man died in the dementia unit at the Polson extended care facility Sunday. psychiatric issues. As of noon Tuesday, police were still on-scene continuing with their investiga-
tion, and few details about the incident were being released. IH stated: “As this is now an RCMP investigation, we will not be able to release any specific details related to the incident in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation.” Staff response, according to IH, was immediate, and no employees were injured. According to IH communications officer Lannea Parfitt, residents are checked, at minimum, every hour and additional checks are done as needed. This happens day and night. Parfitt said the two men had only been roommates since Thursday, and there were only two beds in that particular room. Polson, she said, contains a mix of single, double and four-bed rooms. Parfitt said there was no record of a previous altercation between the pair, though “it is not unusual to see verbal or at times physical altercations between residents if they are in a special behaviours unit.” IH says it has been in contact with both families of the residents involved.
“Our heart goes out to them,” said the statement. “At all of our residential care facilities, our first priority is the safety of our residents and we are taking this incident very seriously and co-operating fully with police.” IH also says it will be conducting an internal investigation. On Tuesday morning, the RCMP announced that John Furman made his first court appearance Monday, and had been charged with murder. He was remanded in custody. Molendyk said the accused is being given round-the-clock medical attention. “He is being monitored 24-hours-a-day and he is in police custody,” said Molendyk. “He’s in a secure facility where he has access to all the medical treatment that he requires, and he is being guarded.” Furman is slated to make a second court appearance today. An autopsy on the victim is expected to be completed today. His name is not being released at this time.

Crews battle raging landfill fire There were some tense moments as a wind-fed fire proved stubborn and unpredictable. Considerable resources converged on the Greater Vernon landfill after a grinder fire spread into adjacent wood debris and grass at about 4:30 p.m. Monday. It grew rapidly and, ultimately, the Clerke Road area was put on evacuation alert. “There’s a lot of concern this thing may spread,” said Jack Blair, Vernon deputy fire chief, as crews attempted to keep on top of the sea of flames. “It’s far from under control.” But as the evening wore on, progress was made by firefighters from Coldstream, Vernon, BX-Swan Lake and the B.C. Forest Service. Besides ground crews, helicopters and water bombers doused the scene from above. Thick, black smoke could be seen from kilometres away and the fire became a huge draw as hundreds of residents lined Bailey Road, the road to the Kal Lake lookout and the Okanagan College parking lot to take in the action.
Coldstream and Lavington firefighters were stationed on Clerke Road in case the fire came over the ridge. “We were concerned about embers and smoke,” said Shane Code, Coldstream fire chief. “We pulled out all of the stops as a precaution.” Residents of the neighbourhood were told they may have to leave on short notice. By Tuesday afternoon, the fire was about 25 hectares in size and Vernon was being assisted by firefighters from BX-Swan Lake and ArmstrongSpallumcheen. “We are trying to maintain control but there is a huge amount of wood there,” said Blair, adding that the main focus was keeping on top of hot spots. “The north side is a concern because there’s lots of grass and trees. If the wind picks up, anything can happen.” However, Blair was optimistic about conditions Tuesday afternoon. “It’s looking pretty good,” he said. With an active fire underway, the Regional District of North Okanagan decided to shut down the landfill to the public Tuesday.

Flames are fed by a large pile of wood debris at the Greater Vernon landfill Monday. The fire started after a grinder malfunctioned. Dale Danallanko, recycling operations manager, says the closure was necessary “to allow an unhindered response by firefighting personnel and to ensure the safety of customers.” Residents needing to dispose of trash were diverted to the ArmstrongSpallumcheen landfill. A decision on reopening the landfill today was made after deadline, but look for further details at www. ver nonmor ningst ar. com

Treasured mementoes stolen roger knox Morning Star Staff
For Katya Kalashnikoff, the tiaras, crown and banners represent a significant 18 months in her young life. From September 2006 to February 2008, Kalashnikoff was involved in the Queen Silver Star Excellence Program. She represented Jaci Lynn’s Bridal Boutique, then represented the City of Vernon for a year after she was chosen Princess Silver Star in February 2007. She kept the three tiaras and crowns, and three banners, including the ones given to her after being named princess, at her family home in Coldstream. On Monday, the items were stolen from the home. “It’s kind of shocking and kind of weird at the same time,” said Kalashnikoff, now 24 and living in the Lower Mainland where she studies political science at college. “I know the outcome could have been a lot worse. But the stuff that was taken is sentimental to me, and you can’t really replace it.” The theft has been confirmed by Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP and likely occurred sometime between 7 a.m. and

program. The tiaras include the large crown she was given for being named princess, her official candidate crown and a smaller one she wore at events. The banners read Princess Silver Star, Princess Vernon and Miss Jaci Lynn’s Bridal Boutique. As she expressed, the items stolen are irreplaceable from a memorable time period in Kalashnikoff ’s life. “It (Queen Silver Star) was something I wanted to do, I just didn’t know how lifechanging it would be in my teen years,” she said. “A lot of people in Vernon are supportive of the program, and it was one of the best things I could have ever done during my high school years. “I’m really thankful I got the opportunity, and to be chosen as an ambassador for Vernon was something I definitely did not expect.” Kalashnikoff and her family would like to have the stolen items returned. Anybody with any information is asked to call the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Lumby officials protest flooding richard rolke Morning Star Staff
Lumby officials continue to be frustrated over what they see as a lack of concern over flooding. The Regional District of North Okanagan board will receive a letter today from the village about high water related to reservoir activities on the Aberdeen Plateau. “The village has communicated our concerns at the board level on more than one occasion and feels that our concerns are being treated with a cavalier attitude by the board and its staff,” said Mayor Kevin Acton in the letter. “We remind you that our residents have as much right to safely enjoy their homes and
“Our concerns are being treated with a cavalier attitude.” — Kevin Acton
businesses as Greater Vernon residents have to ensure enough water to fill their polls or water their lawns. I would think the protection of persons, homes and businesses would rate a higher priority.” Acton says that since the Duteau Creek water treatment plant opened three years ago, severe flooding has become more frequent. He also says that it was common knowledge in the spring of 2013 that water storage
was increasing and the snowpack for the area had remained constant. “At this time, Greater Vernon Water could have released from the upper lakes, creating a controlled overflow at the head gates,” he said. “This would have served two purposes: the first, to make room for the eventual rains and runoff to be contained in the higher areas, and increased flows in the lower areas so there would not be such a sever deluge later
or perhaps, it would have a lesser impact on my community.” Acton insists the Duteau plant was constructed without adequate controls to mitigate the downstream effect of the project. “I need to be able to reassure my residents of their safety and confidence that this is being looked after.” RDNO officials have previously stated they can’t let water out of the reservoirs early, because, depending on weather conditions in the early spring, that water may be needed for domestic supply this summer. They also point out that snowmelt spilling over the reservoirs and into the creek is a natural process. Patrick Nicol, RDNO
Child sent to VJH after dog bite roger knox Morning Star Staff
A dog described by RCMP as a “mid-sized crossbreed” was taken by the SPCA after it bit a child Saturday. Ambulance personnel requested police assistance for a report of a dog bite to a child at a Coldstream residence at about 4:15 p.m. “It appears the dog bit the child in the face for unknown reasons,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. Family members had been looking after their
grandson and a friend’s dog, something not uncommon in this case. “The woman was shocked because she’s known the dog for many years and was looking after it for a friend,” said Molendyk. “The dog has no history of being vicious so we’re not sure what transpired.” The child, five, was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital for treatment while the dog is being held by the SPCA. RCMP and the SPCA are continuing to work with the families involved in the incident.
chairperson, insists his board is taking Lumby’s concerns seriously. “The mayor and council of Lumby should come to a session and get information,” he said. “There is a lot more to it than the average person understands but it’s understandable that the people of Lumby want an answer.”

Police continue to work with the coroner and are going through their records of missing persons. “If we go through our records, when we find a John Doe, there’s sometimes a record of note within our system that John Doe has a relative here or there,” said Molendyk. “We then confirm when’s the last time they saw John Doe.

t’s interesting to note that the Vernon politician pushing for a highway bypass hasn’t actually faced gridlock himself. Coun. Bob Spiers has never been comfortable behind the wheel of a car so he leaves driving to others. But what Spiers does is walk, and while doing that, he has become extremely aware of the growing traffic problem facing Vernon. “We are getting more and more traffic right through town. The truckers would prefer not to come right through town,” he said. Along with those truckers are tourists just passing through as well as local residents on daily errands. As a result, 32nd Street (Highway 97) is virtually clogged from Hospital Hill to the overRichard Rolke pass, while 27th Street is bumper-to-bumper at times. Many side roads are also extremely busy as motorists jockey for space. Concerned that the situation is escalating, Spiers is looking west for the solution. “It could be a potential long-term bypass,” he said of a route on the west side of Okanagan Lake, whether it is the existing Westside Road or something new between the Okanagan Connector, near Peachland, and O’Keefe Ranch. Spiers isn’t the first person to suggest this concept but the challenge with a new, high-level highway is that it would be extremely expensive to construct and maintain. Also, while it would divert some through traffic, much of it would likely remain as tourists and commercial trucks in Kelowna would head this way if going north or east. As for Westside Road, there probably isn’t enough money in provincial coffers to take the

two-lane trail and transform it into something that can accommodate highway volumes. There is also the fact that North Westside residents contend daily with traffic and it’s unlikely they want Vernon’s conditions improved at their expense. Spiers insists there’s no choice but to look to the other side of the lake because a previous council shelved the designation of a bypass corridor in Vernon in 2008. “If we had kept it in the plan, it still would be possible,” he said. True enough, but the western bypass, as it was known, would have disrupted existing neighbourhoods from Mission Hill to Bella Vista. Life would have never been the same for those residents either displaced by the route or contending with truck noise and changed traffic flow. What was obvious during the debate five years ago is that any viable transportation alternative is long gone. Vernon and the rest of the Okanagan have sprawled out too much over the past two decades and carving out a new highway is impossible given the investment made in residential neighbourhoods, businesses and community assets. Nobody wants a freeway next to them. The time for planning was 30 or 40 years ago when Okanagan Landing or East Vernon were largely rural and land was relatively inexpensive. Besides Vernon, Kelowna, Westbank, Enderby and virtually every other community in the valley are struggling with the lack of foresight. Spiers deserves credit for reigniting discussion on the perennial problem of traffic, but no matter which direction you go, there is no easy solution. The sad reality is that congestion is only going to get worse.
Huge crowds lined Highway 97 and adjacent roads Monday to watch the giant plume of smoke hanging over the Greater Vernon landfill Monday. It was an impressive sight as air tankers, helicopters and ground crews ensured the windfed blaze didn’t evolve into something larger, particularly given that this is the 10th anniversary of the Kelowna firestorm. But hopefully residents took home more than just the thrill of the action. “Cooler temperatures and cloudier conditions have not reduced the fire danger rating which remains high across the region,” said Michaela Swan, Wildfire Management Branch communications officer. The grasslands are tinder-dry and something as seemingly innocuous as a spark from an all-terrain vehicle or a lawn mower can ignite a blaze. The same can also be said for a cigarette butt carelessly tossed aside. Just recently, the Wildfire Management Branch expressed concern that some people are still igniting campfires despite there being a complete ban on provincial lands as well as in all municipalities and the regional district. Campfires may be a tradition once the sun goes down and the night turns cool, but they can also cause significant damage if not extinguished properly. It is incumbent on all of us — homeowners, recreationalists, tourists and commercial/industrial operations — to work as a team just as multi-jurisdictional agencies did during Monday’s landfill fire. Follow the rules and immediately report any fires. It is only through co-operation and looking at the big picture that we can prevent disasters such as the one Kelowna is commemorating now.

Water is a vital resource
hey say the best defense is a good offense. The best protection against water shortages is to reduce water needs, and thereby increase our ability to meet future demands. It's like cutting expenses to make your paycheque go farther and create a buffer for emergencies. Around the world, people are reducing their water consumption — indoors and out — and drought-proofing their communities in the process. Living in an area with variable rainfall, like the Okanagan, means we may have two or three wet years in a row, followed by a string of dry years. In his recent letter to the editor, Water Woes, Mr. van der Molen points to this year's full reservoirs. While we had a nice wet spring, Vernon?s record dry July and our ongoing water needs for gardens, industry, agriculture, and fish-spawning will draw down these reserves. Some might recall that only a few years ago, the reservoirs supplying Greater
bus demands When I came to help my sister choose her retirement home in 1989, there was a bus stop sign at the top of 43rd Avenue, just outside of the gate to Uplands. We were pleased. By the time she moved here in November 1990, the bus sign was gone. I would like to see one there again now. Truth to tell, there weren't enough people in Uplands' 30 houses to support transit at that time. Over the past 24 years, the beautiful orchards have been replaced with hundreds of singlefamily homes. Many of these houses have children who can use a bus to go to school. Even more houses contain older people (above the age of 50) and many of these people are one medical appointment away from losing their right to drive. Without a valid driver's licence and with no bus service, we have no choice but to sell our homes and move to a location near downtown.

While some may like that choice, others don't and I believe the city should be encouraging us to continue living in our homes for as long as we can. Anyone who has walked down 43rd Avenue to Pleasant Valley Road (never mind up) knows that this is not a viable option for catching a bus on Pleasant Valley Road. A bus service that could be used by the hundreds of people who live north of 39th Avenue and east of Pleasant Valley Road is needed urgently. Many of us in Uplands are willing to use a bus service that stops at the top of the 43rd Avenue hill even now when we can still drive. Perhaps the bus could circle around Cascade Drive making it available to people who live north of 43rd Avenue on Mutrie Road. Transit staff have said that there is no demand for this bus service. We need to tell them there is. I urge all residents who live north of 39th Avenue and east of Pleasant Valley Road to write to mayor and council to request the city consider our needs.
pare for inevitable downturns in supply. We commend the young woman in Vernon for inviting her neighbours to go golden with their lawns for the month of August.
We will be asking to meet with a city transit representative. If you wish to join us, contact me. audrey Pope rePeat Performance Here we go again. Another well-crafted referendum proposal and vote. The formula is always the same. Suffocating news articles extolling the virtues of the proposal (the past track or the current arts gallery/museum love-in) that downplay the cost ($12 million) and give no recognition to whom the final bill is sent (as ever, the beleaguered property owner). But who gets to vote? Everyone, under the auspices that non-property owners are taxed indirectly and therefore deserve a say in the outcome. Well, it’s time our cynical, local politicians recognize the math. Indirectly taxing non-property owners also affects property owners equally. One cancels the other, leaving property owners footing the bill. What a system, giving everyone
Also, every litre that is treated and delivered to our taps requires substantial energy use and cost to get there. Mr. van der Molen's letter also inquired about the Okanagan Basin Water Board's residential water use estimates for the valley. We have been conducting a series of studies to evaluate current and future water needs. One study modelled the water needs of residential landscaping in the valley, based on actual maps of landscaped areas, and found that, combining indoor and outdoor use, the average resident uses 675 litres per day. As this is a valley-wide average, it includes areas that are hotter and drier than Vernon, and areas that are not on water meters — both which increase water use. We are always pleased to hear that residents like Mr. van der Molen are conserving water and have less than average demand on our shared systems. anna Warwick sears, okanagan basin Water board executive director
a say on how to spend our money. Will there ever be an end to how politicians pass the buck? Why can’t someone in our new and budget-conscious council stand up and tell those with their hands out that the well is dry? If the recipients really believe in their combined arts/museum cause, then it’s time they get off their collective backside and raise the funds independently. Public support will surely be forthcoming, in droves. This isn’t the last referendum. It’s politically ingrained into our system, much like the special dispensations council uses to distribute our tax dollars to those that seem to feel it’s an easier way to raise funds than actually working the public donation purse. It all needs to be flushed from the Greater Vernon political system. I voted for a budget-conscious administration. What I got is more of the same, only coming faster and at a higher price. Get your act together and give property owners some breathing

Back to Earth Community Harvest Festival is ready for round two at Lavington Park this weekend
Morning Star Staff
Jo Burt (centre) is returning with his band, The Jo Burt Experience, to play a number of dates around the North Okanagan this week.
Burt back for more shows
Morning Star Staff
He’s starting to become a familiar face and voice around these parts. Back in the North Okanagan from jolly, old England, evergreen rocker Jo Burt is performing a number of local dates with his band, the Jo Burt Experience. Best known for his incredible history working with musical legends such as Freddie Mercury, The Troggs and Black Sabbath, Burt has been working as a songwriter, bassist/guitarist, and singer for the past 40 years. Now touring with his Experience, Burt first brought his unique “Anglicana” sound to Canada on a hugely successful tour of B.C. last year and returned for a quick tour this past spring, which included some stops in the North Okanagan. This current two-week summer tour will see even more shows around B.C. “I am absolutely buzzing with the reaction we have been getting this summer. Everyone seems to love the new material combined with some old favourites that we throw in. The band is really tight and everyone is on top form,” said Burt. Besides crossing the pond,
Burt has been busy at home putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album. The album was recorded by heavyweight producer Chris Kimsey, who has previously worked with The Rolling Stones, Duran Duran, Peter Frampton, and INXS, at Olympic Studios in London. Besides some of the new material from that album, Burt will also perform tunes from his current album, Seven Seeds, which is available on iTunes. With a writing style based on his background of rock, with a southern style influence and a very English Beatles-esque twist, Burt is said to be a hypnotic performer. “He draws in his listeners with tales from his recording and touring past, and tells gripping and intriguing stories through his songs,” said local music promoter Kath Raeber, who has Burt performing at the Back to Earth Music Festival this Saturday. “His warm and enthusiastic approach never fails to endear him to his audience and the connection and friendship with his band is equally apparent as they clearly thrive on performing Jo’s music.” Originally created two years
“Fruits of our Labour”
ago as a songwriting development tool, The Jo Burt Experience has become a well-known live act playing festivals and venues around the U.K., Europe and North America. For this tour the Experience includes Burt’s wife Antonia, along with Vernon bassist Barry Lamb, guitarist Paul May (of the Legendary Lake Monsters), and drummer Dan Oldfield. The Jo Burt Experience plays an intimate show at Vernon’s Headbones Gallery on Old Kamloops Road Thursday. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are available for $20 in advance at the Bean Scene and at the gallery. The band is at Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek, east of Enderby, Friday at 8 p.m. Cover is $15 and reservations can be made by calling 250-838-6700. The band also headlines the Back to Earth Community Harvest Festival in Lavington Park Saturday at 8 p.m. Admission is by donation. The band caps off its B.C. tour with a performance at the Creekside Theatre in Lake Country Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25/general, $23 students/seniors and $84 for a group of four. Call 250-766-9309 to reserve.
It will be all about this planet and its precious bounty when the Back to Earth Community Harvest Festival returns for a second year this week. Set in Lavington Park with its lush green grass, surrounded by rolling hills and mountains, the communityspirited family event, slated for Friday and Saturday, has been spearheaded by Coldstream’s Back to Earth Enviro Products. “The festival is a celebration of the arts, the Earth, the plants, and the people,” said Back to Earth proprietor Kiley Routley, who with her mom, Kath Raeber, artistic director of the not-for-profit North Okanagan Music Festival Society, are hosts of the event. Raeber, who directed the former Rarearth Music Festival in Vernon and is also creator/organizer of the annual Our Kids Have Talent contest, has lined up a diverse group of local, regional and one international entertainer to perform throughout the two days. “Diversity is the word that best describes the music. We have everything from country to jazz to rock and everything in between — a little something for everyone,” said Raeber, adding, “part of the society’s mandate is to promote the talents of youth and 2013 winners of Our Kids Have Talent will be performing on both days.” Our Kids finalists Chantelle Betuzzi, Eli Garlick and Hana Friedman, and Megan Lauridsen are performing on Friday night just before the Kinshira Fire Troupe and the Okanagan’s legendary rock act The Young’uns. Local singer-songwriter Kian Water and Salmon Arm recording
artist Aimee Laws are also on Friday’s schedule. Saturday includes Our Kids’ Olivia Penalva and the talent show’s firstplace winner, country gentleman Jesse Mast, along with the release of Bobby Kovacs’ 100 Doves, the Earth Sisters, the Ananda Dancers, Betty Anne Northup, the Desert Moon Dancers, Feet First, Silva, The Window Shakers, Sabrina Weeks and Mike Hilliard, Kath and the Tomkats, and headliner, The Jo Burt Experience, led by the legendary guitarist coming from the U.K. There’s also fun for the young ones in the KidZone with Kiki the Eco Elf, Alba Healing Arts, Yoga for Kidz with Dawn Sharman, family line dancing with Tony Evans, Mr. Barrel of Fun, face painting, Coolios’ Sparkle Tattoos, a bouncy castle, tons of games, plus a pool and playground on site. The festival also features local artisans, multicultural food vendors, beverage gardens, and the Lavington Fire Hall (across from the park) is offering a pancake breakfast by donation on Saturday morning. Free energy healing workshops will also take place throughout the weekend. Workshops include Health in Motion Feldenkrais with Carie Bicchieri, 10 Essential Herbs with Lucas Schroeder, Heal with Sheila Snow, Harry’s Honey 101 with Harry Priest, and Drumming for the Earth with Robin Genthon. Those wishing to attend any of the workshops can sign up in advance by calling 250550-6789. With a main focus to give back, entrance to the festival is by donation and a non-perishable food bank item. “We gave a ton of food to the food bank last year, and with over 1,000 people in attendance, that’s a lot of food,” said Routley. The Back to Earth Community Harvest Festival takes place at Lavington Park Friday from 4 to 10 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. As of press time, there was still room for a few more artisans.

‘Sticking’ to harmonies Halina Harmonix begins new season with inspiration from Newfoundland Morning Star Staff
Most travelers to Newfoundland fall in love with its eclectic traditions and kindly people. Alex and Devon Muhlert are no exception, and Devon was agonizing out loud how she could incorporate its folk songs with her choir, Halina Harmonix. That’s when her husband made a ludicrous suggestion. “Why don’t you have them make ugly sticks?” She laughed. But why not? “I’m always looking for new ways to make choir more fun and the music more accessible,” said Devon. “So, let’s make ugly sticks in the service of Newfoundland folk songs.” An ugly stick is a pole (think upside mop) with nailed-on noise-makers. The mop already has “hair,” so all that’s needed is a tin-can face, and maybe a rakish hat, and a boot at the bottom. It’s like a scarecrow, except it’s not meant to scare anything off. It’s a way of including noninstrumentalists in the partying group While beachcombing on Newfoundland’s west coast, Muhlert found a wide array of
Music director Devon Muhlert leads a workshop on making “ugly sticks” in preparation for the fall season of the Halina Harmonix choir. items that had washed up with the seaweed. “I saw lots of single boots, so I’m sure some of their mates
became ugly sticks,” she said. “Newfoundland is such a special place, it has a whole different atmosphere.”
The ugly stick making workshop will be held Sept. 7 at Caetani Cultural Centre, as it’s now open to the community. Bring items that you didn’t know what to do with to use and to share. And please register ahead of time. Halina Harmonix choir starts a new season Sept. 4 at 1 p.m. at the Halina Centre. This year the emphasis is on having fun with simpler harmonies. But a challenge or two won’t be neglected. The Rotary Club of Kalamalka Vernon has gifted the choir with a substantial grant for new music. “The choir is so grateful. Some of our music dated back 40 years. Well, old music is great too, of course, like Bach and others. But it’s nice to be updated too.” Muhlert also tapped into Newfoundland inspiration, writing four new songs in two weeks. “I look forward to our new season and to seeing people new to the choir,” she said. “This group enjoys singing, and gives back by singing at seniors’ homes. It will be great to share new repertoire this year.” Muhlert also begins the 2013-14 instrumental teaching sessions at her Ms. Music Studio on the Caetani grounds the first week in September. For further information, call Devon at 542-3228 or Trixie at 545-7819.
Try comfrey tea for happy plants
he few drops of rain we got the other day was enough to fill one barrel. It is enough to keep the houseplants and the baskets happy. The lawn is getting a nice shade of brown and it even makes noise when you walk on it. Soon I hope we’ll get a couple of days of rain to bring back the green in it. I harvested all of my corn. It was very good. I found a way in a book to microwave it in Jocelyne sewell the husk instead of cooking it in water. The taste was excellent. The beans are doing well and finally the peppers are starting to produce. The grapes will give me a bountiful crop this year. I am thinking about drying some for my own organic raisins or I might just freeze them again this year and use them in fruit salad. I am still cleaning the beds and this is a good time now to start saving seeds, as a lot of flowers and vegetables are giving up on the season. Every day I go around the
A GArdener’s diAry
garden and look at what can be picked. I have trays of seeds in the basement all drying and waiting to be sorted. This time I keep paper and pen at hand and write the date and the name of the seeds harvested. Many times over the years, I was sure I would remember which was which I had saved just to end up in the compost because I could not tell the difference. Many seeds look alike. I had some seeds I was not sure the name of the plant and by chance I got on the internet and found what I was looking for after someone had mentioned it in a forum. It is amazing (www.theseedsite. co.uk/).There is a section with the pictures of what the seeds look like and the pods, plant profiles and much more information. I started reading from page one in the 1,001 Gardening Secrets book the other day and should do a couple of pages a day. This is more for winter reading but I need some of the secrets now. #1 Maximize sweet berries: Mulch blueberries deeply in September and come June, your bushes will thank you with a lush harvest. Blueberries are acid lovers with roots very near the surface of the soil. To protect them, feed them regu-
larly, keep the weeds down, and maintain a six-inch (15.2cm) layer of decomposed pine bark, pine needles or wood chips around their trunks. #2 Comfort plants with comfrey leaves: Comfrey can do wonders for your soil. Its leaves are rich in potassium, nitrogen, and trace minerals. Bury the leaves directly in your beds and let them break down naturally. Or you can make a soil-enriching brew with comfrey cuttings and a pound (454 g)of blackstrap molasses. Mix the two in a five-gallon bucket and add water. Let the tea ferment for 10 days, then serve it to your plants. Container plants really love comfrey. I am planning to return to the Lumby Public Market in September. I really miss the Saturday gathering and all the friendly people I have met over the last years. It is such a neat little market and the ride to get there is beautiful. Don’t forget the Upper Room Mission or the Salvation Army if you have too much coming out of your garden. They will be happy to take it off your hands and you’ll have less work to do.

Peaches are ripe for canning
eaches are one of Canadians’ favourite fruits and are at the peak of their season right now. I’ve been canning, jamming, and making preserves all week from the fruit ripening on my own tree. Peaches can be dried, canned, frozen, grilled, baked, made into jams, jellies, and preserves, used
as fillings for desserts, and used as an ingredient in many other dishes, from appetizers to entrées. When shopping for peaches, choose fragrant fruits which are unblemished and not overly firm. Fresh peaches are highly perishable, so don’t buy more than you plan to use within that week. If

peaches are picked too early they will shrivel instead of ripening and it’s good to realize that the sweetness does not increase after picking, so tree-ripened fruit is always the tastiest. Blanching peaches for a minute in boiling water then plunging into cold water is the preferred method for easy peeling. Peaches discolour quickly when exposed to the air, so should be sprinkled with lemon, lime juice, or a fruit “keeper” to retain the fresh colour. Now is the time to enjoy fresh peaches with waffles, pancakes, and French toast. Enjoy them fresh right now but also preserve peaches for the winter months. Canning and freezing peaches is not a difficult task. Today my recipes are for making peach fillings for pies, dumplings, cobblers, crisps, cheese cakes etc. and the frozen recipe is really handy for putting

Homemade Canned PeaCH Pie Filling 24 cups peaches, peeled and sliced (about 15 pounds) Fruit Fresh powder 2-3/4 cups sugar 1-3/4 cups packed brown sugar 2 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. finely grated orange zest 1 tbsp. vanilla 1 vanilla bean, cut in half lengthwise (or substitute vanilla extract) 2 -1/2 cups water 1 cup lemon juice 1 -1/2 cups cornstarch Allow sliced peaches to sit in large bowl to release juices; sprinkle generously with fruit

a wire rack in a draftfree place overnight. Once the jars have cooled, verify that they have sealed properly by pressing down on the centre of the lid. If it pops up and down, it has not sealed. Jars that have not sealed can be reprocessed or can be put into the refrigerator for more immediate use. Recipe makes about 7 quarts of pie filling. Freezeable PeaCH Pie Filling 12 cups fresh peaches (peeled and sliced, pits removed) Fruit Fresh powder 1-1/2 cups sugar 1 tbsp. lemon juice 1 tsp. cinnamon (optional) 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/2 cup brown sugar 5 -6 tbsp. tapioca (dry) Slice peaches and sprinkle generously with Fruit Fresh to prevent browning. Mix with 1-1/2 cups sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and vanilla in large pot. Bring to boil, and
add brown sugar and tapioca. Boil again for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool. Divide into thirds. Each portion yields 1 pie. Transfer each third to a 9-inch foil-lined pie plate. Cover with another piece of foil and freeze immediately to prevent peaches from discolouring. Once frozen solid, remove peaches from pie plate, with foil, and transfer to a zip-lock plastic bag for later use. When ready to use, line a pie plate with prepared crust and place frozen peaches on top. Thaw only at room temp, do NOT use the microwave to thaw. Add top crust and bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees F on the bottom rack for 20 minutes. Lower heat to 350 degrees F and continue baking for another 30 to 35 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and pie is heated completely through.

The NOPCC is dedicated to helping women and their partners who are facing unplanned pregnancy, and is also a confidential place to access sexual health services, all under one roof. “Our trained volunteer support workers provide ongoing one-
on-one support, including information about pregnancy options, parenting and referrals to other community services. “All of our services are completely confidential and free.” Early next year, NOPCC will expand its services to include medical confirmation of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection screening, assess-
ment and treatment in an environment of care and compassion, where clients can address significant life decisions and explore how their physical health is directly related to their emotional, spiritual and mental well-being. “We’re about empowering people to develop a positive framework for their lives so they can make healthy choices and decisions that will get them to where they really want to go.” Walk for Life takes place Sept. 15 at Polson Park, starting at 1 p.m. Everyone is welcome. “We are so grateful for the support and encouragement we continue to receive from our community,” said Berdan. “Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the centre, so come out and be a part of this year’s walk.” You can register to walk or build a team of walkers by creating your own fundraising page at www.vernonpregnancy.com/event/.

News Officer tackles fire
roger knox Morning Star Staff
A Vernon RCMP officer literally put out a fire Saturday morning. Shortly before 4:30 a.m., the officer was on patrol in the area of 33rd Street and 30th Avenue when he noticed a fire in a garbage can. “The member attempted to extinguish the flames with the fire extinguisher from his vehicle, but it kept re-igniting,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. Vernon Fire Rescue Services was attended and soaked what was left of the fire to ensure it did not start up again. There was nobody in the area at the time of this fire.

Murdoch in Royale Cup hunt
Knights reload with local talent GRAeMe CoRBeTT Morning Star Staff
Morning Star Staff
There was a familiar face atop the leaderboard of the Royale Cup Canadian Senior Women’s Golf Championships Tuesday afternoon at Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club. Victoria’s Alison Murdoch, who is in search of her record fifth Canadian senior crown, held a share of the lead at 1-under in a field of 107 golfers over the age of 50. At The Morning Star’s press time, Murdoch, who was inducted into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame earlier this summer, was tied with Susan Podolsky of Alexandria, Va. after eight holes of play. Vancouver’s Holly Horwood and Kelowna’s Linda Palahniuk were tied for third at par heading onto their ninth hole. There was a foursome, including former Vernon resident Jackie Little, log-jammed in fifth place at 1-over. Vernon’s Maureen Turner held a share of 17th at 4-over through six holes, while Brenda Samis, also of Vernon, finished her opening round at 17-over, and Coldstream’s Mary Lukacs was 19-over. The top-70 and ties make the 36-hole cut. Meanwhile, a trio of North Okanagan entries was a ways back of the leaders at the Titleist/ FootJoy PGA of B.C. Championship, presented by AXIS Insurance, Monday at the Salmon Arm Golf Club. Jesse Crowe, of Two Eagles Golf Course & Academy, and Keith Vandenbrink, of Hillview, sat in a six-way tie for 46th after Round 1. Shannon Glenesk of the Vernon Golf & Country Club was 54th. Day 2 results were unavailable before The Morning Star’s Tuesday deadline. The field includes 75 PGA of B.C. players over 36 holes of stroke-play for a purse of $33,500.

The North Okanagan Knights lost a good chunk of firepower from the crew that reached the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League final last spring. In other words, it’s business as usual for the Junior B club, which will look reload with another wave of newcomers eager to step into bigger roles this season. Knights heading to Junior A include forwards Matty Saharchuk (Vernon Vipers), Colton Thibault (Salmon Arm SilverBacks), Josh Ellis (SJHL Yorkton Terriers), Morgan Johnston (West Kelowna Warriors), d-men Mackenzie Ferner (Warriors) and Dylan Bowen (Merritt Centennials) and goalie Dustin Nikkel (Trail Smoke Eaters). “Apart from the fact we did well in the playoffs, we were successful in moving kids on,” said Shawn Webb, who is taking over head coaching duties from Kris Mallette, now with the Vipers. “But this is the type of league where you can take players, develop them and still win.” It won’t be a complete rebuild in North Okanagan as there is a decent corps of returnees, including forwards Tanner Burns, Mat Lambert, Brett Hawrys, Anthony Ruggiero and Owen Barker, and blueliner Dryden Profeit. The Knights wrapped up main camp Saturday, which resulted in Webb offering commitments to Vernon Midget defencemen Matt Halvorson, Austin Garrington and Riley Booth, and forward Logan Geefs. He also plucked forward Dennon Leibel from the Okanagan Major Midget Rockets. “We may be lacking some of the offensive dynamic we had last year, but we’re a deeper team,” said Webb. “We’re a team that’ll be able to go four lines deep into the game. “I’m optimistic we’ve got a couple diamonds in the rough. We’ve got some 17-year-olds that are going to shock themselves as to just how good they are.” There will be a youth movement in Knights’ net this year as Dryden’s little brother, Mitch, and Abbotsford’s Zach Dyment, both of whom played Major Midget last year, will battle it out for the No. 1 role. Webb, who will be assisted by Taylor Smaha and goalie coach Brett Thomlinson, won’t finalize his roster until Junior A teams make their cuts. The Knights open the exhibition schedule with a pair of road games against the Chase Heat on Tuesday, Sept. 3 and Wednesday, Sept. 4. They visit the Kelowna Chiefs on Friday Sept. 6. North Okanagan’s season opener is Friday, Sept. 13 (7:30 p.m.) at Nor-Val Sports Centre.

Controls outlast Camels to advance
Ross continued his stellar play, and after fighting off a Monashee defender, the midfielder placed a perfect through ball over the defence to a streaking Brent Poulsen, who calmly beat the keeper far side. Alex Farina then sent in Evan Frederick all alone. Frederick had all night to beat the keeper as the Monashee defence stood watching, thinking it was an offside. Poulsen capped of the scoring in the final minutes on a cross from Frederick, who was sent down the wing by Sam Watson. Danny Stein earned the shutout, clearing countless Monashee crosses and making saves as needed. Tyler Loose and Dexter James brought their physical games to battle the Surveyors for numerous 50/50 balls. In NOSL qualifier play Saturday night, Peters Tirecraft/Concept Physio fell 5-2 to Riot FC at Marshall #4. Tirecraft opened the scoring when Riley Strothers converted a cross from Andrew Vanderham. Riot ran away with it after that, scoring five unanswered goals. Strothers collected his second of the night on a pass across the crease from Justin Mitchell. Salmon Arm Courvas then took a forfeit win over Riot on Sunday, as Riot was unable to field a team in the Shuswap. In the other Sunday quarterfinal, the Revelstoke Stallions upset host Eagle Homes Nation of Domination 2-1 Sunday in Salmon Arm after the Roots and Blues Festival got the best of NOD that afternoon.

Turn-Key Controls’ keeper Victor Gouchee leaps to pick the ball with Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels’ forward Damian Adams lurking in North Okanagan Soccer League quarterfinal playoff action Sunday night at Marshall Field. The Controls clipped the Camels 1-0. Salmon Arm Courvas tonight (6:00) in the Shuswap. North Enderby Timber will battle the Revelstoke Stallions in the other semi at Marshall #3. The league final goes Sunday night (6:00) at MacDonald Park. NET shut down Monashee Surveying 4-0 in a highly physical quarterfinal tilt Sunday at Marshall #4. Monashee was warmed up from their 2-1
qualifier win over the Salmon Arm Outlaws Saturday night, and came out firing. They dominated the first half, owning most of the possession with their physical play. Scoreless at the half, the Timber calmed down and opened the scoring shortly after the break. Rookie Greg Poggemoeller ripped up the wing, only to be taken down on a cleats-up slide tackle inside the penalty area. Libra Video Man of the Match Graham Ross hammered home the penalty.
Bosman banks first league win Morning Star Staff
Striker Kerry Correia scored twice as Bosman Accounting upset the RPM Rutland Spirit 5-3 in Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League play Monday night at Marshall Field #3. Former Camels’ striker Mike Daly, on vacation from working in Alberta, made his Bosman debut and scored once while setting up two goals, including Correia’s 25-yard corker, top shelf, with seven minutes remaining. It was 1-14-1 Bosman’s first win of the season. Correia, named the Burger King Man of the Match, combined with midfielder Kevin Mitchell to send Daly in on a firsthalf breakaway. Daly and Mitchell later set up Correia on a short breakaway which Correia nicely finished. Defender Ian Murphy, while turned backwards, nodded in the winner with 15 minutes left, after a Jenne Huberts free kick, set up after keeper Greg Thalmehimer hit Daly deep in the Spirit end with a goal kick. Huberts had a marvellous game at midfield. Gerson Betman also scored for Bosman, who had five subs for the first time all sea-
son. Central defender Tom Ouchi had a stellar game for the accountants. Rich Chapman supplied two goals for the 8-6-3 Spirit, including a 25-yard scorcher from the right side, after taking a throw in. Chapman was stoned by Thalheimer, who guessed left, on a penalty kick early in the second half with the game even at 2-2. Micha Wykownowsky had the other Spirit goal. Gord Howard netted the winner as the Vernon Leko Precast Camels shaded the North Country Appraisals Kickers 2-1 at Mission Fields in Kelowna. A passing sequence between Okanagan Spring Man of the Match Ron Krause, Rob Hulstein and Dan Zieske resulted in a nice through ball to Al Murphy. The Appraisal keeper came out to play the ball, but Murphy blocked it and passed in front to a wide open Howard. Going against the wind, the Camels (11-2-3) opened their account in the first half when Rick Raber delivered a quick throw-in to Howard, who crossed Murphy. Wil Kruiper scored North Country’s goal on a header after a great cross by Floyd Ryan. Kruiper also hit a crossbar,
and North Country (10-4-1) sailed a penalty over the net after Krause was called on a controversial check inside the 18. The Leko crew played with 10 men for the final 10 minutes as Murphy was sent off for a second yellow. Dave Dutcher collected the win. Brown Benefits outlasted Big O Tire/ Turn-Key 2-1 in an entertaining tilt at Parkinson Rec Fields. Big O’s goal came in the first half off a booming strike from Ruben Cerventes from 25 yards. The 7-9 tiremen’s defensive line showed plenty of hustle to contain the talented Brown offence. Roland Reidstra was Man of the Match for his workhorselike play up front and willingness to backcheck. Brown top the league at 16-0. Ken Horncastle and Robert Jackson each pocketed a pair as Penticton FC shelled Lake Country FC 6-2 at Beasley Park. Kevin Kothlow and Zeke Pescada, each with a single, rounded out the 14-3 Penticton attack. Glen Heagle and Bruce McAuliffe responded for Lake Country, who dipped to 9-6-1.

The Turn-Key Controls have dialed up a berth in tonight’s North Okanagan Soccer League semifinals thanks a 1-0 win over the Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels Sunday at Marshall Field #2. After losing the season series to the Camels, Turn-Key came out firing, generating a handful of chances in the game’s opening 15 minutes. After celebrating Nathan Tucker’s wedding Friday at Hotel Eldorado, the Controls crew came out determined to win one for their honeymooning teammate. Humpback netminder Ryan Campbell got just enough of a Taylor Horsting shot early on, directing it wide of goal after Evan Moore sprung him behind the Camels’ defence. A passing sequence between Moore, Andrew Pool and Horsting led to the game’s only goal, a tap-in by Liam Eddy. Turn-Key nearly extended its lead before halftime when Pool beat multiple defenders and Campbell, only to have the shot bounce off the right post. The second half saw the Camels play with a little more purpose, but they were unable to solve the Turn-Key defence, led by Carson Haywood-Farmer and Nolan’s Pharmasave Man of the Match Sam Nolan. They were supported by outside defenders Kyle Goodgrove, Bryce Paterson and birthday boy Sean Bonnett. Victor Gouchee earned the clean sheet for Turn-Key, making the Total Restoration Save of the Game on some great secondhalf corner grabs. Gregg Douma hit the woodwork after taking a feed from Mike Bennett. “We felt like we played much better than our record in the series with them (1-0 and 2-1 losses),” said Horsting. “Their goaltender (Campbell) did a great job in all three games and we were just happy to win the one that counted in a great trio of games between the two even squads.” The Controls will face top-seeded

Viper camp ramps up Graeme Corbett Morning Star Staff
The B.C. Hockey League season can’t start soon enough for Brendan Persley and the other returning Vernon Vipers. The sting of missing playoffs for a second straight season, combined with the knowledge that the Snakes will host the RBC Cup national championships next May, has Persley eager to see the puck drop for opening night. “It was definitely a long summer,” said Persley, a 20-year-old Kelowna product. “I took a month off doing any work just to let my head clear.” Wanting to lead by example, and perhaps realizing competition will be fierce for the six 20s Vernon is allowed to card, Persley refocused after his little hiatus and shed 10-plus pounds through a workout program with Calgary-based Crash Conditioning. “It was good to get the confidence back and I’m starting to get healthy again and I’m really excited to be back and see the guys,” said Persley, who missed 15 games to injury last season. “It seems like they’re here with positive attitudes so it’s good to see everyone came back on the same page.” If Sunday’s fitness testing is any indication, Persley isn’t the only returnee to make offseason strides. Colton Sparrow astounded everyone in the pushup test, rattling off 110 reps in a minute. Dexter Dancs walked into camp 20 pounds heavier and has upped his squat lift by 80 pounds.
These improvements haven’t gone unnoticed by head coach Jason Williamson, associate coach Kris Mallette and assistant coach Dave Robinson. “I’ve been impressed, for the most part, by the work these guys have done in the summer,” said Williamson, who said forward Mason Blacklock and blueliners Ryan Renz and Josh Bryan also showed well in fitness testing. “A lot of them bulked up, and in some cases leaned up. “They’re definitely showing they want it and that they want to be here and be part of something special this year.” One returnee not on the list is forward Mitch McAllister, who has been released for off-ice issues. “We need guys 100 per cent focussed on hockey and his mind-set wasn’t completely there,” said Williamson, of the Calgary native. “We want players that want to be here and compete for jobs.” Those attending camp appear to be getting that message as Monday’s Blue vs White intra-squad game featured plenty of energy. Second-year forward Logan Mick supplied an empty-netter as White earned a 6-4 win. Williamson will begin trimming down his roster following today’s intra-squad game, 4:30 at Kal Tire Place. The Vipers open the BCHL exhibition season with a home-andhome set with the Salmon Arm SilverBacks, starting Friday at the Shaw Centre. The ‘Backs visit Vernon Saturday night (7:00).

Turnbull spent last season with the Merritt Centennials calling games on Q101 FM. The 27-year-old Kamloops native is a 2011 graduate of The B.C. Institute of Technology’s broadcast radio program and has also spent time with the Chase Chiefs of the KIJHL.

Brandt’s Creek Pub and Cantina’s ran to a 2-2 draw at Kettle Valley. Brandt’s went ahead midway through the first half on a penalty kick after Blair Gautschi was bowled over in the box. Gautschi dusted himself off and coolly dispatched the ball low, to the corner. Early in the second half, Cantina’s (5-10-2) earned a direct free kick 25 yards from goal. Garry Heathcote expertly placed his shot around the wall and beyond the outstretched Brandt’s keeper. At the 70th minute, Brandt’s (2-11-4) went ahead again on another Gautschi penalty. Minutes later, Jim Gorges of the Cantina’s was red-carded for a foul on the Brandt’s keeper after a corner kick. The shorthanded Cantina’s snatched a point with five minutes to play when Heathcote eluded his marker and smashed an acute angle shot beyond netminder Marty Vincze. Pushor Mitchell Advocates tethered the Rented Mules 2-0 at Quarry Park. The Advocates are 3-9-5, the Mules 2-13-1. Meanwhile, in Kelowna Men’s 35+ League play Monday night, Vernon Kal Tire returned to form by beating Tree Brewing 5-1 at Parkinson. Kriss Yargeau opened the Kal Tire scoring late in the first half, poking one past the Tree keeper on a scramble. In the second half, Rodney Goodchild crossed the ball to the head of Jesse Knight, and a few minutes later, John Duc broke free at centre and chipped the keeper from 18 yards out. Tree Brewing got one back when Tyler Johnson was red-carded for a hand ball inside the 18. Kal Tire showed composure and responded when Darren Nobrega chipped the ball to Knight, who got his second of the night. Late in the game, Graeme Magee broke down the sideline and dangled a defender then hit a great shot into the net.

But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.” Hopefully all parents agree with that. This week we are noting that defenders shouldn’t trade the acronym “trade” for anything. We have reached A for audition the auction. It is important for the defenders to use the information gleaned from the bidding to help the defense. In this example, East has to make the key play. Against four hearts, West leads the club ace: five, eight, four. West continues
with the club king: nine, three, jack. West plays a third club, East ruffing and South following suit. What should East do now? South’s sequence, opening in spades, then bidding hearts twice, showed at least 5-5 in the majors. North went with the 5-3 heart fit, hoping that some spade ruffs in his hand would help. (Note that three no-trump should be defeated.) East gave a high-low to show his doubleton club. And since West was watching, he was not distracted by South’s jack falsecard at trick two. East now knows that South started with three clubs. So, as declarer must have 5-5-0-3 distribution,
trying to cash the diamond ace cannot be right. Instead, East should exit with a trump, aiming to reduce the spade ruffs in the dummy from three to two. This defeats the contract. If East doesn’t return a trump, declarer can cash his top spades and crossruff home.

Andrea Maria June TOTH 18 January 1973 – 14 July 2013
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Andrea in Newcastle upon Tyne, England where she studied, lived and worŬed as a professional arƟst and an educator at Newcastle University͘ MetastaƟc Breast Cancer took her too quickly; however, she passed away peacefully with her mother, cousins and friends by her side. Andrea was born in Prince Rupert, BC and moved with her family to Kamloops at the age of 6 weeks. ^he completed her high school educaƟon at Kamloops Senior Secondary in 1991 when she was awarded scholarships for her excellence in art. She was always very involved in music, both at school with band, choir, accompaniment and compeƟƟons, and privately as well, winning many awards. Life guarding, teaching swimming & CGIT were some of the other acƟviƟes that kept her busy. She aƩended the University of Calgary and in 199ϱ obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painƟng and drawing. She travelled to Europe and the UK with friends, and later moved to Vernon to be with her family. Andrea aƩended the University of BC where she graduated with a Bachelor of EducaƟon in 1999. She was a subsƟtute teacher, had her own Andrea Toth Arts business for teaching art and making and prinƟng art cards, and became the curator of the Vernon Art Gallery for two years. Andrea then pursued her dream of furthering her art educaƟon and was awarded her Masters of Fine Art at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK in 2006. She lived and worked in Newcastle for 9 years where she excelled with her beauƟful landscape painƟngs. She also taught in Įrst year Architecture as well as classes in Life Drawing in the Fine Art department of Newcastle University. Andrea leaves to mourn her passing her parents, Geza and Diane (Osborn) Toth of Vernon, and her sister Georgina (Gord) Chipman and their three children, Stephen, KaƟe and MaƩhew of Williams Lake. She will be sadly missed also by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many special friends in Canada, England and Hungary. She was predeceased by her grandparents “CD” Bill & June Osborn of Coldstream and Gyula and Maria Toth of Hungary. A memorial service to celebrate Andrea’s life will be held at All Saints’ Anglican Church, 3205 – 27th Street, Vernon (parking behind the Church) on Saturday, August 24th at 2͗00 p.m. In lieu of Ňowers you may choose to make a donaƟon in Andrea’s memory to the Allan Brooks Nature Centre Society, PO Box 20038 Vernon, BC V1T 9L4 or charity of your choice. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.

EXPERTS Gerry M. Laarakker,
The best answer will be to collect your current Mortgage information for us to review the agreement that you have on your existing home as each Lender will have different terms for using portability of your mortgage to a new home. It is best to be preapproved ahead of time, so that the Lender can assess your new application and the time frame you will have to find a suitable property. Portability will allow you to transfer your exact mortgage balance, interest rate and term to a new property, but you must re-qualify for the Mortgage. Some Lenders offer a short 30 day Port window, while most offer 90-120 days and some will not allow the mortgage to Ported to a new property at all. You also may have opted for a No Frills Mortgage, where the interest rate was lowered below the market rates, but you lost the ability to use Portability, as well a the assumption feature of the mortgage by a buyer and any prepayments on the mortgage. (One of the large National Bank Lenders had this product last year as a Sales Campaign.). We are happy to review the information with you. OAC/E&O

What’s the new law about Common Law Marriages in BC? Recent legislation in British Columbia has codified just what a common law marriage is and what the ramifications of living in common law are.
After two years of living together, or living together and having a child, you will be treated by the law almost the same as if you were actually married. In case of a break-up, the property-sharing regime is similar in common law as in a marital relationship. Relationships may fail. To avoid any unpleasant surprises it is wise to have a cohabitation agreement early in the relationship when things start to turn ‘serious’. It can protect your assets and spells out the respective obligations of the parties. It beats having to go to court, pouring out your life story in public and having some person in a black robe make decisions for you that affect you for a life time.

I was looking at my masonry chimney the other day and noticed that the bricks were stained and cracked; the mortar appeared to be deteriorating as well. What causes this and how can it be stopped?
This is caused by cracking and deterioration of the concrete collar or “crown” around the top of the chimney. Over time the crown cracks & storm water finds its way through the cracks & into the bricks or masonry units. Once there it freezes & thaws, cracking the bricks, deteriorating the mortar joints & in worse cases the brick faces break off. The repair is to clean up the crown, seal all the cracks & around the flue with a good, flexible concrete caulking; then seal the rest of the crown with a good concrete sealant. This should stop the deterioration. Re-sealing should be done every two years or as required. In worse cases, re-pointing the mortar & re-placing some of the bricks may be required. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; fix the crown cracks before the bricks or masonry units are damaged. And remember, when in doubt, always ask an expert.
How common is deafness? What causes it? Does it affect one gender more than another?
Deafness and/or hearing impairment affects about 1 in every 10 people in North America. Deafness and hearing impairment has many causes including, noise, aging, head trauma, drugs, ear infections, genetics, tumors and other medical problems. More men seem to have hearing problems at this time because of working around noise, but this is changing as more women now work in noisy environments. It is important that you have a hearing test if you think your hearing is impaired for any of these reasons.

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

Home Check Services
often should my home Q:How be checked while I’m away? A:
The frequency of home checks varies among insurance companies – from every day, to once a week. These differences are based on the carriers’ past experience. Usually, an insurance carrier will agree to reduce the frequency if the home is checked regularly by a qualified home watch service. Your insurance broker can explain the specific requirements of your particular insurance carrier.
Working with our clients, Comfort Home Supervision Services prepares a schedule of regular visits, and a detailed list of specific checks to be performed. During each visit we take time-dated photographs. Thus, in the event of a disaster, these photos are an up-to-date record of the contents of your home.
