Kal Lake looking for top spot Morning Star Staff

Kalamalka Lake has been nominated as the best public space in Canada. The Canadian Institute of Planners is currently in the midst of its annual competition to recognize the country’s special places. “Kalamalka Lake is central to the identity of Lake Country, Vernon and Coldstream, and is probably one of the most photographed lakes in the Okanagan Valley due to its outstanding colour and character, not to mention its value as a natural and recreational resource,” said Mark Koch, Lake Country’s director of planning and development. Generations of residents and visitors have enjoyed the shores and waters of Kalamalka Lake for recreation and a


Kalamalka Lake is in the running to be named best public space in Canada. source of drinking water. It has played a role in the development of orchards and

vineyards and it is a critical part of First Nations culture. “There is an urban legend here that says Kalamalka Lake was named one of the 10 most beautiful lakes in the world by National Geographic back in the 1960s,” said Mary Jo O’Keefe, a Vernon councillor. “When you see the colours of the lake start to change and the streaks of turquoise into the lake’s depths it is not hard to believe that this is truly a special place in a very special corner of the world.” The contest closes Sept. 23 and people can vote at en/place.asp?id=6198 “We hope everyone shares our belief that Kalamalka Lake is one of the best places in Canada and will vote in the contest,” said Jim Garlick, Coldstream mayor.

Movie-making is hard work but a Hollywood production crew is exploring the North Okanagan. Walt Disney Pictures’ Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney and Hugh Laurie, has been shooting in Enderby, Grindrod and Armstrong since Aug. 19. “Everyone has been working like crazy but people have had time to get out and enjoy the area,” said Lee Anne Muldoon, the movie’s publicist. However, while there have been reported sightings, Muldoon insists Clooney is not touring around. “No, absolutely not,” she said. Tomorrowland has a crew John Trainor of about 300 people. “The new Fairfield Inn in Vernon has rooms out for them and Fortune’s Landing in Enderby is full,” said John Trainor, Okanagan Film Commission chairperson. “They have cleaned out Askew’s Foods of triple A steaks. There’s a lot of cash going back into the North Okanagan.” Trainor was on the set for three hours last week. “It’s very cool. There are two 100-foot booms up and we saw the shooting of a stuntman,” he said. The $250 million budget production will be in the region until about mid-September. “Everything is going per schedule including even the weather,” said Muldoon. There have been no problems with local residents trying to interrupt the action. “The public has been extremely respectful,” said Muldoon. “They understand that we are running a closed set and we thank the people of the North Okanagan for giving us the room to work.” Trainor is confident that Tomorrowland will translate into other big-budget movies coming to the region. “They Tomorrowland (crew) are blown away by the incredible scenery. They will go and talk about it and the impact will snowball,” he said. Tomorrowland will be released in theatres Dec. 12, 2014.

All systems go for Armstrong fair richard rolke Morning Star Staff

The biggest show in the North Okanagan is ready to burst out of the gates. Armstrong’s Interior Provincial Exhibition runs between Wednesday and Sunday and thousands of people are expected to flock to the exhibits, rides and the rodeo. “Everything is flying high to get things done,” said Bryan Burns, general manager, of the final preparations. Last year’s attendance was 150,170 and a similar crowd is anticipated this time around, particularly given that the IPE is a tradition for many. “It’s one of the events people wait for at the end of summer,” said Burns, adding that the festivities bring people together, whether it’s loved ones, friends or complete strangers. “It’s about family here. Even with the vendors and the entertainers, there is a sense of family. There is a lot of interaction going on.” About 2,000 exhibitors will display everything from fruits and vegetables to crafts, photographs and baking. And then of course there is the livestock — cattle, goats, sheep, pigs, horses and more exotic critters. For Burns, the IPE is a critical part of maintaining awareness about agriculture in an increasingly urbanized Okanagan. “There are people who come here who have never been close to a farm animal before,” he said, adding that the displays connect them directly to their food supply at home. “Here they can see animals and fruits and vegetables.” Fair-goers can also have a chance to talk to the youthful members of 4-H about rais-

Agriculture continues to be the primary focus of the Interior Provincial Exhibition. The 114th annual Armstrong fair is expected to draw a huge crowd from Wednesday to Sunday. ing livestock. Among the most popular draws during the fair are Saturday’s parade, the daily midway and, of course, the West Coast Lumber Jack Show. The IPE also welcomes the Wrangler Rodeo Tour Finale, which takes place every night at 8 p.m. at the grandstand. Attendance numbers will depend a lot on

the weather, and if there are clear skies and lots of sunshine, records could be broken. “I used to look at the forecast all of the time but it always changes,” said Burns. “I can’t control it and if it does rain, there’s lots going on inside.” Many of the people who will pass through the gates over the five days are right from the North Okanagan, but they will also arrive

from Kelowna, the Shuswap, Kamloops and from across B.C. and Alberta. Whether you are a regular attendee or have never been before, Burns is urging everyone to head to Armstrong for the fun. “It’s a great way to end the summer season. There is so much to see and do,” he said. For more information, go to

Procedures questioned over gallery vote richard rolke Morning Star Staff

There are concerns bureaucracy’s wheels are spinning over Greater Vernon culture. The Regional District of North Okanagan board has directed staff to prepare a report for the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee on the timeline and cost of a possible referendum for a museum and art gallery. However, director Mary-Jo O’Keefe questions why the matter will go back to GVAC when it was GVAC that sent it to the regional board.

“This is another case where we are sending people back and forth,” she said of the Greater Vernon Museum and Vernon Public Art Gallery. “This is just being obstructionist. Why are we not moving forward? Maybe we don’t want a referendum, so let’s just say that.” Director Catherine Lord also suggests that while both GVAC and the RDNO board are involved, no concrete action is being taken. “It really is back and forth,” she said. However, other officials point out that GVAC is an advisory body and the main regional

district board must authorize any decisions, including staff preparing reports. “You don’t just get to plop it on the ballot. There is a process,” said chairperson Patrick Nicol, adding that a thorough investigation of costs and designs are necessary before taking an item to public referendum. It’s anticipated that the staff report will be before GVAC in September. “It could come to the board but then the GVAC representatives would have no say. Plus, you are only saving two weeks,” said director Doug Dirk.

Traffic misses Oyama highway opened. “There seems to be reluctance to recognize the community of Oyama,” said Dickie. “I don’t think there is any malice involved, there just seems to be an oversight.” While Oyama is part of Lake Country, Dickie says there has to be a recognition of Oyama’s century-old identity. “Oyama has been an entity for a long time and businesses have been associated with Oyama a lot longer than the municipality has been around,” he said. According to the Ministry of Transportation, it understands the importance of highway signage for residents and businesses in Lake Country. “Signage has been discussed with municipal stakeholders throughout the project as the sign locations and wording is part of the detailed design,” says a ministry statement. “Some of the final sign adjustments needed to happen after the new alignment was activated, otherwise the signs would be confusing for travellers.” The ministry says installation of service and attraction signs started during the middle of last week and should have been completed by Saturday.

A change in traffic patterns has been a dead-end for Oyama merchants. No sooner was the new stretch of Highway 97 open Aug. 16 and customers visiting businesses along the old highway and Oyama Road evaporated. “It (new highway) is almost like a freeway Owen Dickie and it doesn’t go through town so people are driving right past,” said Owen Dickie, a Lake Country councillor, adding that there was confusion about how to access Oyama. “I had one orchardist say that one person drove to Kelowna (looking for him) and then came back and wound up in Vernon.” The District of Lake Country’s tourist information centre at Gatzke Orchards was receiving about 50 visitors a day before the highway opened. On Aug. 17, the day after the route was unveiled, there were none. There have been questions as to why the Ministry of Transportation didn’t immediately post attraction and direction signs once the new

Bylaw targets gravel removal richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Gravel extraction is getting a rocky response in the BX. The Regional District of North Okanagan is looking at amending the country residential zone to prohibit extraction of minerals in the BX-Swan Lake and BX-Silver Star areas. However, the provincial government, not RDNO, will mandate whether gravel extraction occurs. “We can provide input but the responsibility rests with the ministry,” said director Bob Fleming, who supports Bob Fleming the bylaw because of residents’ concerns about gravel activity. “It could be a tool to slow the process down and allow residents to have some input.” GMO concerns addressed Cherryville and rural Lumby are making it known that they don’t like genetically modified organisms. The Regional District of North Okanagan board has given first reading to an official community plan amendment to include policies regarding GMOs. “We’re not restricting anything. We’re just putting in a statement about them,” said director Eugene Foisy, adding that RDNO does not have the authority to ban GMOs. A number of outside agencies will be consulted on the initiative before further approval of the bylaw is considered. Vernon defends its neighbours Vernon is ensuring the interests of its neighbours are protected. City representatives have insisted that Regional District of North Okanagan bylaws reflect the existing voting structure for Greater Vernon parks and recreation. “It should be two,” said director Bob Spiers of Coldstream’s membership at the table. Bylaws are being revised because of restructuring to the function and they had only referred to one Coldstream director when the municipality has had two. RDNO members have agreed to amend the bylaw so two Coldstream directors are mentioned.

Residents along the Lumby-Mabel Lake Road are just waiting for a tragedy to occur. A petition is demanding improvements to both the paved and gravel portions of the road because of growing traffic volumes and close calls on the route. “We’ve been trying to get road improvements for some time,” said Pat Pointer, with the South Mabel Lake

It’s been neglected for 30 years.” Besides being narrow, the pavement is in rough shape. “There’s patches on top of patches and some corners are dangerous,” said Pointer, adding that the road is extremely busy during the summer. “Mabel Lake Provincial Park has been expanded and overflow (parking lot) is overflowing.” Pointer says resi-

Residents have also been in contact with Tolko Industries which is logging in the area. “They also have concerns with the road and advised the ministry that they would be using this area very heavily for the next few years and this was communicated to the ministry well in advance,”

Undercover sting nets arrest Morning Star Staff

A covert police operation has resulted in the arrest of a Vernon man for child luring. The man, in his 50s, attended a restaurant Aug. 16 to meet a young boy he’d been communicating with online. That’s where he was arrested by the B.C. RCMP’s Integrated Child Exploitation unit. The man was unaware that the person he thought was a young boy was, in fact, a highly skilled covert investigator with B.C. ICE. Over a period of weeks, the man allegedly engaged in dialogue with the supposed boy, which was increasingly inappropriate and sexual in nature. The man subsequently arranged to meet with the boy at a local Vernon fast food restaurant. A number of investigators from B.C. ICE and a specialized surveillance unit travelled from the Lower Mainland to intercept the man at the restaurant, where he had arranged to meet who he thought was the young boy. Assisted by the Vernon RCMP, the man was instead greeted by police investigators, and arrested for the offence of luring. The suspect was later released with strict conditions governing his contact with children and his access to the Internet. An electronic device was seized and is currently being analyzed. B.C. ICE reports that at this time, they have no evidence suggesting that any local children were directly victimized by the man. The investigation does however remain ongoing. “While we do everything we can to proactively identify and apprehend predators who are actively trying to meet with children, this investigation

“This investigation serves as a grim reminder to parents.” — Sgt. Mat Van Laer

serves as a grim reminder for parents,” said Sgt. Mat Van Laer, head of B.C. ICE. “Child predators will go to great lengths to win the trust of their intended victims. We advise parents to educate children about possible dangers online, and oversee their computer use.” A full report is expected to be forwarded to Crown counsel. The man who was arrested is scheduled to appear on Sept. 19 for a first appearance, at which time it is expected formal charges will be heard. The B.C. ICE unit also relies on tips from the public and encourages anyone who has information about the online exploitation of children to contact either their local police or report online at www. Tips for parents: • Be aware of your child’s online activities. • Parents should supervise children’s computer use and be aware who they are talking with. • Parents should restrict talk to children about what information is appropriate to post, or reveal in chats. • Be aware child predators will spend a long time to win the trust of a child. Sexual content may not be introduced until a relationship is well established.

Progress continues on sports complex Morning Star Staff

Behind-the-scenes work continues on a new sports facility in Greater Vernon. Regional District of North Okanagan staff and the project manager will meet with stakeholder groups throughout the fall to discuss the site layout, civil work and facility/ building design. “Following the public input, the consultant will be proceeding with the detailed design process and tendering the ground works and preparation of the site,” said Tannis Nelson, community development coordinator. The archaeological study on the site is currently underway and

expected to be completed by the end of September. On-site construction will begin following the comple-

tion of the study. “With an October construction start, completion of the project is expected by the fall of 2014, with the facility

to be open to the public by spring of 2015,” said Nelson. Greater Vernon residents voted in April to borrow up to $7.5 million to construct the facility, which will include a running track and sports fields.

Zip code of the west

e’ve been doing 75 miles an hour for the last two hours across the desert and the view hasn’t changed a bit. The mountain outcrop up ahead is called El Capitan on the map, and the mountain range we left behind looks the same in the rear-view mirror as it did two hours ago. We are on vacation in the vast Desert Southwest. If we drove this far in Europe, we’d have been through six countries, five topographies, nine microclimates and been pickpocketed twice — once by a group of boisterous children and once by a couple of adults pretending to be lost. Our southwestern deserts cover much of four states and big parts of at least five others, plus a big chunk of Jim Mullen Mexico. Everyone’s heard of Death Valley, but what they never mention is that the valley right next to it — and the one after that, and the one after that — stretch on for hundreds of miles. To get to Death Valley, you had to cross an unending series of Near-Death Valleys. Good times. Imagine crossing this vastness on a horse and wagon. While the desert looks flat to us from a speeding car doing 75, up close it’s full of wheel-cracking arroyos, steep-sided gullies and rough, stony ridges. Every outcropping of any size is called El Capitan, which is Spanish for “Are we there yet?” Drive for 200 miles in any direction and it will seem as if you’re driving in place. Your eyes start to play funny tricks on you. You can spot a discarded beer can by the roadside flashing in the sun five miles away. In the desert it will never rust, it will never fade, it will shine until the last cockroach dies. Even here, it is hard to be totally alone. There is no vegetation to hide the propane tanks, no shade trees to cover the swamp

coolers on the rooftops, no ivy, no bougainvilla, no wisteria to climb up the side of the cinder-block buildings. Because there is nothing to disguise the mile or two of power lines marching up to a solitary trailer in the foothills with one faded car baking in the sun next to it, there is rarely a time that you can’t see the hand of man. A barbed wire fence runs along both sides of the highway for miles, but there are no cattle, no horses. Is the fence there to keep something in or to keep us out? There is always a trailer off in the distance: the house of a herder or a survivalist? The tops of the barren peaks are covered in unidentifiable, oddly shaped buildings sprouting antennae. Are they secret government complexes? Or are they the headquarters of some villain who has James Bond stored up there until he can find an unusually gruesome and foolproof way to kill him, a trap from which he will never escape but always does? Or they could just be water cisterns, observatories, mine heads or maintenance sheds. It’s hard to tell. The icon of Western films, the giant saguaro cactus — the one that looks like a man giving hand signals with both arms — is in big sections of the desert. They are notoriously slowgrowing cacti. They don’t grow their first “arm” until they are 70 years old. Since they are old and slow, they’re perfect for target practice. It’s hard to find one that doesn’t have a bullet hole, a machete scar or someone’s initials carved into it. You wonder how a cow or a horse could survive in this overheated desolation. What did they eat? Where did they get water? It slowly dawns on you that many of the historic cowboy towns of movie lore — Tombstone, Virginia City, Deadwood — were really mining towns. Hollywood used the desert because it was close, not because it was real. We’ve been duped again. Contact Jim Mullen at

Failed NDP leadership candidate Dana Larsen and his group Sensible BC are set to kick off their campaign next month to force a referendum on marijuana policy. Much like the ultimately successful Fight HST petition in 2010, Larsen hopes to use the Recall and Initiative Act to force an end to what he sees as archaic and draconian drug laws. Specifically, Larsen and his group want to prohibit the use of police resources in B.C. to enforce drugs laws aimed at the possession and use of marijuana. Larsen will need to get more than 10 per cent of registered voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts to sign the petition in order to force a province-wide referendum on the issue. He’ll have 90 days to do it, beginning next month. Larsen is no doubt emboldened by the success of the Fight HST campaign, not to mention the recent move by Washington State to legalize recreational marijuana use there. And the message is clear: Marijuana prohibition does vastly more harm than good. It’s a message that is increasingly finding an audience. An Ipsos poll conducted last year found that 66 per cent of Canadians support the decriminalization of marijuana in small amounts. Twenty-five years ago, that number was just 39 per cent. It’s an encouraging trend. Marijuana prohibition funds organized crime, wastes tax dollars, wastes police resources, and makes the drug easier for young people to obtain. Larsen should be commended for going after an issue that most politicians are too afraid to touch. His message is one that deserves to be heard. -South Delta Leader

Lack of vision is a problem

n Aug. 12, Coun. Bob Spiers told his colleagues that a bypass around Vernon is needed before Vernon is paralyzed by permanent gridlock. Coun. Spiers, the blame for the traffic volume in Vernon can be directed squarely at city hall and past and present councils for allowing the helter-skelter developments that has happened over the years. Some of these developments were conflicting with commercial neighbours who were forced to move away or close down. These developments just added traffic to a 1950s designed road that was designed to accommodate a horse and buggy. Nobody knew any different back then. And in turn, the traffic funnels on to the north/south thoroughfares causing gridlock. Yes, there is more traffic through town. I believe Vernon has lost its commercial base and the savvy shopper is being forced to go else where. There are many seniors that go for daily drives. These seniors well never give up their cars. Hospital Hill is a 10 per cent grade. The fear that a large truck could go out of control on Hospital Hill and careen into downtown Vernon is a fear that has been talked about for years. The fear of a truck loosing its brakes on Hospital Hill

information sought On Aug. 15 at 9:30 p.m., my 79-year-old father was going for his evening walk when a speeding car hit him in the 3800 block of 36th Street. Witnesses at the scene tell us that the bright silver SUV which hit him, slammed on the brakes very loudly, stopped momentarily and then drove away without inquiring to his condition or rendering assistance. The first witness was only 10 feet away in a parked car and was at my father’s side within seconds, just after the car drove off. His immediate efforts of stabilizing my father’s spine and reducing the bleeding saved his life. My father is now in intensive care in critical condition, and is trying to recover from three neck fractures in addition to other life-threatening injuries. He is in a medically induced coma, with a breathing tube. His neck is filled with plates and pins from emergency surgery and his face and head is covered with staples and stitches. He will be in the hospital for months requiring heavy sedation and heavy pain killers. He may not recover. Prior to this accident, he lived independently and was enjoying his semi-retirement.

thing right to save my father’s life. I would also like to thank the fire department for arriving in about two minutes from the 911 call, and to the ambulance RCMP and hospital staff for their outstanding care and compassion. If you have any information about this accident, call the RCMP at 250-545-7171, regarding file 13-17373, or 250-545-1371 if you prefer to not speak with the police. name withheld kin race track While I can appreciate Ms. Besso's enthusiasm for promoting the race track to the province and tourists, I think there should be some effort made to make it more esthetically pleasing, i.e, get rid of those dead and dying shrubs, pave the parking lot (such as it is) and clean it up. It is an eyesore and I cringe every time I drive by it. Maybe instead of the in-fighting as to who owns it and who has dibs on the use of the property, that energy could be used to do work-bees and make it a more inviting place to come to. Penny s. coon stealth technology A recent report that Ottawa is testing a $620,000 stealth snowmobile sent shivers up my spine. Whenever Ottawa and stealth are

about two inches in diametre — has never been built on Hospital Hill. The proposed western bypass was meant to fail. Much of the proposed route was on former artillery training grounds and unexploded artillery shells are still being found 60 years later. Did anyone know at what cost these grounds would be deemed safe to construct a road on? City hall has wasted precious taxpayers' dollars focusing on long-term traffic issues through aggressive transportation demand management such as transit, walking and bicycling. One such conflict that has been created with this plan is the narrowing of streets and a lack of onstreet parking. The Polson Greenway is a good example of wasting tax dollars. This project was touted as a recreational corridor for the leisurely travel of pedestrians and bicyclists. Now it is being touted as a means to move automobiles traffic north and south. What ever happened to the 27th Street connection to Highway 97 south? What ever happened to the long forgotten eastern bypass? There will always be traffic gridlock because of the lack of vision and the way the City of Vernon has been allowed to grow. george serhan

used in the same sentence a voice inside my head hollers, “Pickpockets." The Department of National Defence has nicknamed its high-tech snow machine after the mythological shape-shifting god Loki. Given the Conservatives’ penchant for altering facts and concealing information, Loki seems appropriate. I can’t help wondering how our Afghanistan veterans, who are getting the bureaucratic runaround, feel about Harper’s willingness to spend $620,000 for a snowmobile. lloyd atkins dangerous road We would like to thank a couple of Sam's guardian angels who in the late hours on Tronson Road found our injured cat and canvassed the neighborhood for his owners. He is back doing his well-appreciated neighborhood rattlesnake and mice control thanks to you. No thanks to the people who feel this road is a raceway. Really, this road with no walkway is a hazard for people and animals. Take a few extra minutes to get where your going. And kudos to the ones who do. Our neighborhood loves you.

Buying a new house? You usually have to put up a hefty deposit to cinch the deal. This is partly to show your commitment to the deal and also to create a pool of funds for the seller to look to if you walk. (Sellers take note: this can be key if the buyer is a non-resident or his finances unknown.) If you’re the buyer, you want to make sure you can get your deposit back if conditions in the contract (like a house inspection, getting a mortgage or having your lawyer review the title) aren’t satisfied. You also want to keep the deposit small to minimize your loss if you can’t go through with the deal. Usually the buyer and seller focus on the amount and timing of the deposit. But you should also pay attention to the wording of the deposit clause. That’s because the addition of a few words can make the difference between the deposit being kept by the seller and the buyer being able to get it back. A hot-off-thepress B.C. Court of Appeal decision illustrates this.

account of damages, without prejudice to the Seller’s other remedies.” The seller said this meant he was entitled to keep the deposit here. This view is supported by a previous B.C. Court of Appeal decision, which considered similar wording (but with additional words which said the money was also “nonrefundable”). The buyer focused on the words “on account of damages” instead. He said that if the seller hadn’t suffered any such losses (because the seller was able to resell at a higher price), then the deposit had to be refunded. The buyer relied on a different previous B.C. Court of Appeal decision supporting this view.

Nick Vlahos

The deposit in this case was $100,000. After the buyer refused to go through with the purchase, the seller sued to have this money released to him, claiming he was entitled to keep it. The buyer argued he should get his deposit back because the seller hadn’t lost any money (i.e., the seller should only be allowed to keep the deposit if he resold at a lower price). The purchase contract read like this:

“… unless the balance of the cash payment is paid … on or before the Completion Date, the Seller may, at the Seller’s option, terminate this Contract, and, in such event, the amount paid by the Buyer will be absolutely forfeited to the Seller …, on

The buyer won at first. The trial court ordered the deposit to be returned to him. In doing so, the court stressed the fact that the words “non-refundable” weren’t in the deposit clause. But the court also commented that the matter would likely be appealed. Which it was.

The Terry Fox Run will be held at Coldstream Elementary Sept. 15.

There are a lot of reasons for people to sign up for the Terry Fox Run — a parent, a spouse, a child, a coworker, even the person next door. “Everyone has been touched by cancer in some way,” said Diana Williamson, who is chairing the organizing committee for the 33rd annual local event Sept. 15. And because of the far-reaching impact of cancer, hundreds of people are expected to turn out this year. “We’re really looking for the community to participate,” said Williamson, adding that all forms of mobility are welcome. “It’s a run, a walk, it’s for bicycles or pushing the stroller.

And the B.C. Court of Appeal overturned the decision. It decided that the seller could keep the deposit without having to prove loss. This decision jives with what buyers and sellers normally think a deposit is for and how the standard contract deposit clause in wide use in this province works. But it shows yet again that a few words in a contract can make a critical difference, and whole cases can turn on what they intend. Consider consulting your lawyer if you need help with writing up your contract, or if your real estate deal goes sideways.

Finding My Way - Grief Support Group North Okanagan Hospice Society is offering a grief support group beginning October 9th for eight consecutive weeks. Sessions will be held in the evenings. The group provides a safe place for adults experiencing grief due to the death of a loved one. Participants will be introduced to the definitions of grief and mourning, discuss ways that grief affects people differently, and identify ways of getting through a time of loss and transition. All interested individuals will be invited to meet with the Grief and Bereavement Counsellor prior to registering for the group to determine their current needs and readiness. For more information, call Panadda @ 503-1800 ext: 200

Dogs are welcome.” And while cancer is an extremely serious subject, the Terry Fox Run is all about having fun and community spirit. That’s why a new component has been added this year — Team Up for Terry. “The team can be your bowling club, family or friends,” said Williamson of trying to bring people together. “Once you have a team, you can get some friendly challenges going.” Many of the people who annually sign up remember Fox and his attempt to run across Canada in the 1980s. But increasingly, many of the participants were born long after the national icon died. “His name will always live on,” said Williamson. The 300 participants in 2012 raised $9,000 for cancer research and care and the goal this year is to surpass that figure. C o l d s t r e a m Elementary School is once again the location, with registration at 8 a.m. and the run at 9 a.m. You can register, donate or download pledge sheets at www. “We have a great committee and it’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Williamson, adding, though, that volunteers are still needed. Anyone wanting to volunteer can call Williamson at 250939-0441.

The Enderby and District Community Resource Centre provides a number of programs that help with the early development of children.

Enderby services profiled richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Enderby officials are under pressure to ensure the viability of critical social programs. The Enderby and District Community Resource Centre has met twice in the past week with city council members and staff. “We want them to be aware of the issues and the need to work together,” said Sue Rossi, EDCRC executive director. “If you don’t use social services yourself, it’s a mystery.” But for many Enderby area residents, challenges are something they face on a daily basis. Studies indicate that 49 per cent of kindergarten children in the community are vulnerable in one or more areas of development (the provincial average is 30 per cent). Statistics from 2011 show that Enderby ranks 22 out of 92 health areas in order of worst-off to bestoff in terms of the socio-economic index. Teenage pregnancy also continues to be high. Rossi says the areas of greatest focus are poverty, food shortages, keeping families together and building a health community. “We have some real social issues here and the centre is being inundated with needs we can’t address,” she said. “As a community we have to look at how we can deal with these issues from within.” Among the programs offered by EDCRC are Healthy Eating for Life, Mother Goose, Sunshine Seniors Call Line, community kitchens, food skills

The City of Enderby is being urged to advocate for local social programs. for families and seniors, emergency bus tickets, emergency good vouchers, resource information, early childhood development and Healthiest Babies Possible. Ideally, Rossi would like to see EDCRC operations expand from two to five days a week. “We’re not expecting the city to provide that funding but if the city supports our vision, that will go along way,” she said of raising the centre’s profile locally or lobbying senior government for assistance. Rossi is pleased with the response she has been receiving from city council and staff. “They are open to continuing to meet and talk,” she said.

Superintendent’s Message Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year. I hope that our students, families and staff had an enjoyable and relaxing summer with family and friends in the beautiful Okanagan.

for 2013/2014 school year Transportation Registration Forms

As we prepare for an outstanding year of learning and student growth, I would like to thank our teachers, administrators, and support staff for their excellent work and dedication. I would also like to congratulate our recent graduates on their many accomplishments and wish them every success in the future.

A Message from the Board Chair: On behalf of all trustees, I look forward to welcoming both new and former students back to class for the 2013-2014 school year. We are very proud of the way in which our students, staff, parents and community work together to ensure that every student in School District 22 experiences success. Our teachers, support staff and administrators are committed to creating a healthy work environment, and to deliver and support a variety of programs that meet the needs of all learners. They work tirelessly to achieve this goal and their commitment often extends beyond the classroom to offer our students athletic, fine arts and community opportunities that they may not otherwise enjoy. Each new school term brings with it new opportunities and new challenges. Every effort will be made to take advantage of these opportunities to expand and enhance student learning. We can also expect new challenges as this district has repeatedly demonstrated that it has the resilience, initiative and skills to deal with difficult situations. We look forward with confidence to a rich, exciting and rewarding school term. To each of our students, I wish you a successful and promising school year and on behalf of all trustees, I thank the entire school community for making School District 22 a great place to learn.

dog reportedly killed a fawn. “While B.C. Parks was investigating this complaint, the same dog caught and killed a marmot at Juniper Bay as witnessed by a number of people,” says a Ministry of Environment statement. “The owner was subsequently issued a $345 fine under the Wildlife Act.” Val Buchanan, with the Friends of Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park, is concerned about dogs running at large. “B.C. Parks has the authority to destroy a dog for killing wildlife in any park,” she said. Dogs are permitted in all areas of Kal park, with the exception of swimming beaches (Jade/Juniper Bays and Cosens Bay) for public health reasons. Dogs, however, must be on a leash at all times. “Dogs off-leash can be in danger from rattlesnake bites,” said Buchanan. “The snakes are just on trail edges, sunning themselves in the spring and summer.” There are two dog beaches in the park, one at the south end of Cosens Bay, the other off the Crest Trail on the way to Rattlesnake Point. “Greater Vernon offers a number of dog parks where pets can be exercised off-leash. One of these, Creekside Park, is located on the way to Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park,” states the ministry.

Vipers bow to ‘Backs in exhibition Morning Star Staff

Evan Anderson pocketed a pair of goals as the host Salmon Arm SilverBacks bounced the Vernon Vipers 5-1 in B.C. Hockey League exhibition play Friday night at the Shaw Centre. The ‘Backs, who fell 2-1 to the host Merritt Centennials a night earlier, scored in the opening minute. Vernon’s Craig Martin replied for the Snakes shortly after on a onetimer from the slot, assisted by fellow Kootenay product Dallas Calvin. “Marty (Martin) was terrific,” said Vipers’ head coach Jason Williamson, who dressed only a handful of veterans for the game. “He skated well and had several good scoring chances.” Williamson went with a young goalie tandem, with Gunnar Neilson and Harrison Whitlock sharing crease duties. Incumbents Austin Smith and Danny Todosychuk both sat out with minor injuries, and were also likely to miss Saturday night’s rematch at Kal Tire Place. Scoring for the SilverBacks were Evan Anderson, with a pair, Thomas Plese, Jeff Kennedy and Josh Bowes. Aside from some soft goals, Williamson was pleased with Vernon’s defensive game as the

Vipers outshot Salmon Arm 28-20. “There’s some things that we’ll have to shore up, but overall the effort was there,” he said. Williamson made two more cuts following Friday’s game – forwards Matt Hill and Kai Cathers – leaving him with 17 forwards, nine dee and four goalies. The Vipers will meet the Prince George Spruce Kings for a Wednesday-nighter in 100 Mile House, and will conclude the preseason with a home-and-home series with the West Kelowna Warriors starting Friday (7 p.m.) in Vernon. After one full year at the helm of the SilverBacks, head coach/GM Troy Mick has a much better understanding of what his team can do. “We have a lot better idea of what are roster is and where we’re coming from,” said Mick, who has had two stints as head coach with the Vipers. “We were always OK with our size, but this year we’re faster and more skilled. Last year, we had to grind out wins. “The culture has officially changed in Salmon Arm.” Vernon minor hockey products Harlan Orr, Alex Gillies, Alex Jewell and Colton Thibault are all with the SilverBacks.

Sunterra Sistas swerve over Centreline to cap season The Sunterra Custom Home Sistas signed off on a stellar North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Division 2 season with a 9-2 win over Centerline Attack Thursday night at Marshall Field #4. Playing in their new light-weight jerseys from Okanagan T-Shirt Co., the Sistas had several players return from injury, while Jen Currie rejoined the team after playing at the recent World Masters Games in Torino, Italy. Deanna Baker and Nicole Williamsn each collected a hat trick, with assists by Kim Sylvester (2), Cassandra Otto, Tania Wirachowsky, Baker and Becky Birbilis. Wirachowsky had a pair of beautiful goals, one started with some fancy footwork by Otto. Amy Fitchett set up Birbilis for the other Sunterra strike. Steady goaltending by Suzyn August, and lots of hustle and solid passing from Sarah Ehman, Carmen Kinniburgh and Amanda Gaythorpe contributed to the win. Emily Sapsford and Shyla Ladd handled the Centreline attack, while keepers Kris Ponto and Azra Cawley anchored the defence.

Centreline thanked coach Greg for his commitment all season. Meanwhile, both Okanagan (Zone 5) entries in men’s soccer were shooting for a bronze medal Saturday at the 26th B.C. Senior Games in Kamloops. The 60s went up against North Island, and the 55+ crew took on Vancouver Columbus in the medal round at gorgeous McArthur Island Sports Park. The unbeaten 60s just missed making the gold-medal match after grounding Richmond 4-0 Friday morning and shutting down South Central (Kamloops) 3-0 Thursday afternoon. Denis Chabot, with the winner, Boris Pasieka, with a top-shelf toe poke with just minutes remaining, and Dave Duncan, with the winner, were Vernon products finding the net for the Okanagan against Richmond. Dwight Folk of Kelowna had the other Okanagan goal in support of Tim Brent (Penticton). Chabot was the Royal Canadian Legion Man of the Match. Folk, Tim Penaluna of Vernon and Kurt Schadels of Creston supplied goals as the 60s stuffed South Kamloops.


Central defender Rob Parkin, of Vernon, was the Zone 5’s Black Press Man of the Match. Chabot and Dave Hampton (Vernon) were stellar in the midfield. There were six teams in the field. Okanagan held on for a 2-1 win over North Island in their Wednesday opener. The 55+ squad finished at 2-1-1 after brushing off North Island 3-0 and clipping Columbus 1-0 in Friday action. Striker Matt McGraw (Kelowna) buried a low 20-yard shot after a sweet feed by defender Andy Miller (Kelowna) as Okanagan stopped Columbus early Friday morning. Keeper Chris Burkitt (Kelowna) was rock-solid earning the clean sheet. McGraw, on a penalty kick, Joe Jamison (Kelowna) and Peter Toth (Penticton) with a 25-yard corker, top cheese, provided the Okanagan goals versus North Island in front of Burkitt. Midfielder Mahmoud Abdel-Kader and defenders Ted Sheehan and Kevin Mitchell, all of Vernon, had firm showings. There were 3,800 athletes from 13 zones at the Games, open to anyone aged 55 and older. There were 25 sports offered, from hockey and golf to archery and swimming.

Teammates Wally Herrmann (left) and Don Bigelow enjoy a game of Pickleball at Sawicki Park. The Vernon Pickleball Club is hosting its inaugural Invitational Tournament Saturday, Sept. 4 at Paddlewheel Park.

Pickleball tourney on tap Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Pickleball Club is having its inaugural invitational tournament Saturday, Sept. 14 at Paddlewheel Park. Wally Herrmann of the local group said a total of 72 players have already registered for play from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. “They are excited and eager to show off their competitive skills in our round-robin format,” said Herrmann. “Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in North America and it has grown in leaps and bounds in Vernon the past year or so. “We are seeing between 130 players to 152 players play per week at Sawicki Park during our regular sessions.”








Players born in 2003 to 1996 Registration forms & evaluation dates / time are available at

The racket sport combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. It is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net, but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer, smaller version of a wiffle ball. A pickleball ball typically moves at one-third the speed of a tennis ball and the court is just under one-third of the total area of a tennis court. The co-ed tournament players will be in skill-rated levels: 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5. Some visitors are already confirmed from Surrey, Abbotsford, Montreal and

Kitamat, while half the field if from the Interior. There is a waiting list. “Our tournament met its quota quicker than any other city that hosted a tournament this year - in less than four weeks,” said Herrmann. “We are so happy and proud to be able to showcase Vernon at its best at Paddlewheel Park.” The Vernon club holds six sessions a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Vernon will have 22 members in the B.C. Senior Games in Kamloops. Anyone interested in pickleball is urged to contact Herrmann at waherrm@yahoo. ca or 250- 542-3797.

She lapped several competitors in the five-lap circuit and then built herself up to 155-pound lift before her time was up.

Members of the Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake are planning the second annual Spirit Paddle from Kal Beach to Jade Bay Sept. 2, starting at 10 a.m.

Paddle planned for Kal Lake Morning Star Staff

It’s a chance to celebrate one of the North Okanagan’s gems. The Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake (SPrKL) invites everyone to join them on Labour Day, Sept. 2, for the second annual Kalamalka Lake Spirit Paddle. “We plan to enjoy a peaceful, scenic voyage together from Kal Beach to Jade Bay where we will eat lunch and socialize before heading back,” said Louise Christie, with SPrKL. Plans call for those interested in the paddle to bring a non-motorized craft of some sort and a picnic lunch, and meet at Kal Beach on the side closest to the Kal Lake Store at 10 a.m. After the lunch at Jade Bay, the paddle will return to Kal Beach at 2 p.m. “Don’t forget lifejackets, towels, sunscreen, hats and other weather appropriate clothing,” said Christie. “If those times don’t work for you, join us when and where you can.” That invitation includes hikers, who are welcome to pack a lunch and join in the fun at Jade Bay.

Small cherry crop As the last of the late cherries are plucked from trees in the Okanagan, it’s become clear that frost and cool weather during blossom time in the spring has had a significant impact on the size of this year’s crop. Christine Dendy, B.C. Cherry Association president, estimates this year’s crop to be around 50 to 60 per cent of normal — a loss estimated at $32 million. While last year’s crop was estimated at about 16,000 tonnes, this year they picked an estimated total of 8,000 to 10,000 tonnes, she said. Spring frost resulted in a much-smallerthan-normal crop produced by growers in adjacent Washington State as well, she noted. “Next year will be a big challenge as both Washington and B.C. could have big crops with new production coming into bearing as well,” she commented. Cherry production in the Northwest has increased exponentially in recent years as more and more growers replanted apples to cherries, with low prices

on global markets for apples and with newer varieties of cherries providing a lengthened season for harvesting and marketing. There are still young trees that are just coming into production in both countries. Byron Jonson, general manager for the agriculture ministry’s crop insurance branch in Kelowna, says not all producers, particu-

larly some of the larger cherry growers, participate in the program, but he said they have seen claims for losses in the Oliver-Osoyoos area of 75 per cent of last year’s crop, and 30 to 50 per cent in the Similkameen. Growers in Oyama also put in claims for spring frost damage, resulting in a lighter crop there than during 2012.

A river jogs through it chris mcbeath Special To The Morning Star

NEW BRUNSWICK - If Hollywood ever decides to film a remake of A River Runs Through It, I certainly will not audition for a role. However, after getting my feet wet on New Brunswick’s Miramichi River, I can at least tell stories about “the one that got away.” I didn’t really get my feet wet in the river (although at times I’m sure Brian Peterson, my fishing guide, wanted to chuck me into the river), but I did get them wet metaphorically speaking, with respect to fly fishing. While I’ve gone deep-sea fishing in the Florida Keys and done plenty of spincast fishing in many Canadian rivers and lakes from the shore and from canoes, I’ve never fly-fished. In fact, before I had a chance to learn the skill in New Brunswick, I had only ever held a fly rod once – and that was to carry it down to the lake for a friend of mine who was going fishing. But here I was, on one of New Brunswick’s most popular angling rivers, trying to do my best Brad Pitt-as-Paul Maclean imitation. I didn’t head out onto the river completely unprepared. I’d spent a good portion of the previous day touring the Atlantic Salmon Museum in Doaktown. Whether you’re interested in salmon, fish or fishing in general, or just general conservation, it’s definitely a “must-see” if you’re visiting the area. There I learned all about the history of salmon-fishing in the area, how the species was almost fished out but saved in the eleventh hour by a concerted effort of local conservationists, to the point where fish populations on the river are healthier than they have ever been. The Museum comes complete with dioramas, a hall of fame (including famous Boston Red Sox slugger Ted Williams —

a long-time regular and visiting angler to the area), video displays, 3D models, maps, a library collection devoted solely to fishing, and, of course, fish—including a life-sized replica of the largest Atlantic salmon ever caught: 72 pounds, 68.5 inches long. There is also an on-site aquarium. It’s a great place to get you excited about fly-fishing — even if, like me, you’ve never done it before. It’s also a place to learn how to tie flies, if you have the time and patience. I had the time, but it was the instructor who required patience. She runs fly-tying classes for youngsters, and I’m sure many of them were more adept than I was at tying flies.

I didn’t spend all my time indoors. I also spent an hour or two getting some fly-casting lessons from Bev Gaston, a fishing guide himself, as well as the husband of Linda, the museum’s executive director. “Hmmm, this doesn’t seem that difficult,” I thought. “I seem to be getting the hang of this.” Of course, casting on shore and casting while standing up in a boat in the middle of a river are completely different tasks. So, on the appointed day, armed with a somewhat false sense of my own skill level, I walked down to the river from my cabin at O’Donnell’s Cottages, met my guide Brian, hopped on the boat, and off we went. It turns out fishing guides sometimes require even more patience than fly-tying teachers. After coming close several times, I finally hooked him — in the back of his nylon shell - and his only response was a wry smile and the comment, “Couldn’t have been that bad if I didn’t feel it...” He offered some pointers, then helped me hook a four-pound salmon. “Keep it tight! Keep the tip up!” he exhorted as I tried to land the fish. It jumped — once, then twice — a beautiful flash of silver splashing in and out of the water. Brian readied the net to bring it into the boat ... and then the fish spat out the fly and swam off. Catching the salmon would have made a great story. But I do have a great “onethat-got-away” story. However, I wouldn’t have that particular fish for supper, that night, but I did enjoy a wonderful camp meal of salmon, fiddleheads, homemade mashed potatoes, and home-baked sourdough and corn bread served on tin plates at the museum. Maybe next time, mine will be the fish on the plate. Chris McBeath is with Travel Writers’ Tales.

Christchurch ready for visitors NEW ZEALAND - Christchurch’s muchloved Cathedral Square has been liberated - the rebuild cordon is officially history and locals and visitors are returning to the city’s heart as the South Island city takes a significant step forward in recovery. With Cathedral Square open to public access, Christchurch city council has launched the Transitional Square project which will see the central city area transformed into a welcoming public space for vibrant art installations and performances, with new seating, facilities, and landscaping. Since the cordon was removed, crowds of weekend and weekday pedestrians have been taking the opportunity to revisit the Square putting new life back into the city centre for the first time since the damaging February 2011 earthquake. “We can now start thinking inside the square and restoring it as a focal point of activity,” said Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker. Parker said that it was important to set the right tone in creating a welcoming area that represented the history of the Square and was “sympathetic to the scale of the disaster and the rebuild job ahead.” Cathedral Square

Mike and Barb Angel were married in Edmonton 50 years ago, Saturday, Aug. 24, and promptly headed off on a three-week camping tour of southern B.C. in their VW bug. They had met while attending University of Alberta. From the beginning they were both determined to raise a family while pursuing their respective careers. However, before their careers had hardly begun, they decided to take their young family overseas with them to teach with CUSO in Guyana, S.A. Life was never the same thereafter. When they returned to Canada they settled in Winnipeg for the next 30 years, where they raised three children. Mike worked as a college instructor, and library administrator at the Department of Education and the University of Manitoba. Barb taught a variety of subjects (mainly history and music) at the elementary, secondary and

Their place was aways home to international students, refugees, itinerant musicians and filmmakers, as well as friends of their children. Some stayed overnight, while others remained with the family for years. Mike served on the executives of several library associations at the provincial and national level, while Barb spent a number of years as chair of the Manitoba Arts Council

and volunteered at the Winnipeg Folk Festival as stage crew. Their love of the outdoors led the family to build a cabin on the Winnipeg River in NW Ontario, where they spent many happy summers canoeing, fishing and berry-picking, while their winters were spent cross-country skiing. When Mike took early retirement in 1998 they finally had the opportunity to move to B.C. Barb spent a number of years teaching at OUC before also retiring, and afterwards

Mike and Barb Angel: married Aug. 24, 1963. got involved in the community arts scene as a member of AURA chamber choir and the Community Concert Association, as well as taking up a new craft with the Monashee Spinners and Weavers. Both sing in All Saints Choir, while Mike has volunteered with a number of environmental and community

welfare organizations. Oh, yes, they continue to cross-country ski, cycle, golf, practise taichi, garden, and most of all, enjoy their five grandchildren — four of whom now live in B.C. The family is looking forward to a grand reunion at Tlall in Haida Gwaii on the last long weekend of the summer.

Time to improve communication


reviously I had extolled the virtues of a government publication called My Voice: Expressing My Wishes for Future Health Care Treatment. This-56 page booklet is available online and can be copied free from the website or a copy can be purchased for $9, including shipping. Unfortunately, this government still hasn’t gotten the message that not all seniors have, or want, computers or may be on a limited Pat Black income and cannot afford the $9. One of my readers, Don Rollins, then attempted to find this publication and the following is an abridged account of his adventures: “I called the Seniors Information and Resource Bureau/NOEES who had a copy of My Voice: Expressing My Wishes for Future Health Care Treatment, and could photocopy the document, in return for a “donation.” She added that it costs them

personal best

about $3 a copy. I would have preferred the actual booklet instead of a photocopy, but figured $3 was better than $9. Before visiting their office I decided to see if Service BC (right next door) might have the booklet. At first glance, the free pamphlets seemed to involve vehicles and licensing, but closer examination showed a number of other publications, all free for the taking. I could see no reason why the Advance Care Planning Guide should not also have been available, free, so I waited in line to speak with a service agent, who went into a back office and found their one and only copy of the guide, with a sticker on it saying: “Display Copy Only.” She explained: ‘We don’t give out any copies of this.’ I didn’t ask what good it did to hide the one and only “display copy” in a back office. I noted to her the several booklets with far more than the Advance Care Guide’s 56 pages, including the 165-page Seniors Guide in Punjabi that were free for the taking. She replied ‘I hear what you’re saying.’ “Before giving up, I visited Vernon

Jubilee Hospital. They had never heard of the guide, but suggested I call a few funeral homes. I decided to stop off at MLA Eric Foster’s constituency office and explained the issue to a staff member, stressing the importance of the booklet, and noting Service BC’s odd policy concerning not providing the guide. She said she was not aware of the publication, but promised to bring the issue to Mr. Foster’s attention. “As I turned to leave, I noticed a pile of government brochures and booklets set out on a small table...and there it was...the guide. Six copies, free for the taking. I took one for myself and I will also send an e-mail to Service BC, cc Eric Foster, the Ministry of Health, requesting that the guide be made available, for free, in all Service BC offices. In the meantime, there are still five copies over at Eric Foster’s office.” Thanks, Don, for this and underlining the need for better communication.

On a perfect Sunday morning, 27 dog “athletes” and their human companions completed the 1.6, five or 10 km walk/run and 25 or 50 metre swim in Pooch Partners’ second annual Doggie Duathlon, raising $400 for the Vernon and District Animal Care Society. With obesity on the rise in both canines and humans, this fun, non-competitive event is just one way that Pooch Partners encourages people and their dogs to get fit while having fun and helping out a local animal charity. Shelly Korobanik, owner of Pooch Partners and event organizer, was pleased with the event, Aug. 11 at Kin Beach. “This year’s Doggie Duathlon was a great success because of the fantastic participants, the volunteers, and the incredible generosity of our sponsors,” she said, thanking sponsors Pet Planet, Healthy Spot, Bosley’s Pet Food Plus, AJ’s Pets & Things, Hilltop Subaru, Walmart, Vernon Butcher Shop, Butcher Boys, Stussi Sport, Salomon, Barry J Goodsell Photography, Champion Petfoods, eLoad Sport Nutrition, Road ID, Petsecure, John Deak, Bulk Barn and Sun FM. “Be sure to mark your calendars for Pooch Partners’ third annual Doggie Duathlon scheduled for Sunday, August 10, 2014.” Check out other upcoming Pooch Partners’ events at

A brief history of vanity

for thousands of years cosmetics have been a big part of the vanity toolbox. Cosmetics provide a plethora of social signals designed to enhance beauty, indicate status and advertise sexuality. For centuries, they were the palate of the privileged class (and the oldest profession). For example, Cleopatra’s day would have begun with slaves applying emollients composed of beeswax, olive oil, castor oil and fragrance to soften her skin. Kohl, a mixture of lead, copper, ash and burnt almonds,

second opinion

dr. April sanders

was applied to encircle her eyes to give the catlike look so coveted in her time. Flash forward to the 1600s when the pale face symbolized ultimate beauty. The highest class of European women responded by sun avoidance and to best their competitors, many resorted to bloodletting. The voluntary loss of a pint or two would achieve the desired pallor. The pale face became even paler in the 1700s when ceruse, a white paint composed of lead and arsenic, became available at a time when smallpox scars were ubiquitous; the plasterlike substance could fill the depressed areas and hide imperfections. The downside to ceruse, however, was deadly. Lead and arsenic caused eye swelling, rashes, tooth loss and

even death. The quest for beauty accelerated in the 1800s with the increased accessibility to the mirror and the invention of the photograph. To present a beautiful complexion for the camera, 17th century women ingested Fowler’s solution, a dilute concoction composed of arsenic, to improve the skin. The driving force behind the cosmetic boom of the 20th century was the movie industry. Cosmetic enhancement became mainstream and entrepreneurs like Max Factor, Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubenstein and many more delivered what women of ancient times dreamed of, a whole constellation of products guaranteed to enhance the female face and body at an affordable price. Coco Chanel, for better or worse, convinced the modern woman that a tan was the new fashion accessory. At the start of the 20th century the average life expectancy of a woman was only 42 years. As advances were made in public health and medicine, people lived longer and the demand for cosmetic product to fight the vis-

Coping with Pet Loss For many people a Pet is not just a “Dog” or just a “Cat” but a beloved member of their family. So when they die, whether due to an illness or something traumatic, we can feel a tremendous void. The level of grief will differ from person to person, but can be as intense, as when a person close to us departs. Grieving is a very personal process. It can come on very gradual and intensify over time or it can be intense from the start. There is a full range of emotions that we go through. Initially we may feel denial, anger and guilt then go through a depressive state and eventually gain acceptance. There is no set time for grieving and it could take days, months or even years before we can accept our loss. Seeking others who have lost a pet may help. Don’t let anyone tell you how to feel and understand your grief is valid. Be tolerant of your emotions. Whatever your grief experience, be patient with yourself and allow the process to naturally unfold.

ible signs of the aging process became big business. Cosmetics, however, could only enhance one’s features or hide imperfections. Aging women needed more. The movie industry and its aging leading ladies led the charge towards antiaging surgery, and the niche of the cosmetic surgeon was born. The arms race towards youth and away from old age escalated with the proliferation of plastic surgery procedures. Now a tighter face, flatter stomach, larger breasts, slimmer limbs and designer vaginas were only a nip and tuck away. For those unwilling to go under the knife, Botox and tissue fillers opened up a new world of possibilities. Now for a price, anyone can have a wrinkle-free face, plumper lips and look years younger. Some may ask, when does the madness end? My answer is that it doesn’t. As long as men and women are still breathing there is a desire to be relevant in a culture that values beauty, status and sexual attractiveness. Some may be shocked by the voluntary exsanguination by women in the 15th century to achieve pale skin, but today’s woman is willing to do far more. Botox, or botulinum toxin, was first used for strabismus (cross-eyes or lazy eyes) and blepharospasm (eyelid spasm or twitching disorders). When it was noted that these patients had a dramatic improvement in wrinkles, Botox was licensed for cosmetic use as well. Injection of cosmetic Botox is com-

monly restricted to the muscles of negative selfexpression. The result is smoother skin and a relaxed look. In Canada, Botox is a scheduled drug and only available to doctors. Physicians (and dentists) and RNs under the supervision of doctors are the only health care professionals who are licensed to inject Botox. If an esthetician injects Botox, it has probably been acquired online, and should be considered suspect. Botox is an excellent product for the upper face, but the aging process in the lower face requires other interventions. As the face ages, there is a loss of subcutaneous fat that alters facial shape. The older face is characterized by flattening of the apple of the cheek, deepening of the nasolabial folds, formation of marionette lines and laxity of the jaw line. To reverse these changes, the most popular products today are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body and is not recognized as a foreign substance by the immune system. Injections of HA can re establish volume loss secondary to the aging process. And so the history of vanity continues. Instead of olive oil, beeswax and kohl, we have Botox, fillers and so much more. We are not so different from our predecessors. The good news today is that we have better and safer tools to achieve these objectives. What will the future hold? I predict an effective treatment for hair loss is just around the corner.

Dancers learn from Ukrainian adventure AndreA MAlysh

Submitted to The Morning Star

The Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble of Vernon has recently returned from Ukraine where members had a two-week adventure in the Carpathian Mountains and participated in a dance workshop in the ancient city of Lviv. Twelve members of the local performing ensemble toured Kyiv and Western Ukraine to learn about their heritage first hand. Once in Lviv, the ensemble partook in a Transcarpathian dance workshop at the resident studio of the famous Yunist Ukrainian Dance Ensemble. They were instructed by the artistic director of the Zakarpathia State Ensemble. Their tour began in Kyiv, the 1,500-year-old capital of Ukraine. Kyiv is a city rich in architectural and historical sites and is one of the most beautiful capitals of Eastern Europe. We spent an evening exploring Kyiv’s Podol region and also enjoyed an evening cruise on the famous Dnipro River. A local tour guide shared the history of Kyiv that included St. Vladymyr’s Cathedral, Kyiv Opera Theatre, famous Red University, and Shevchenko Monument along with an afternoon visit to the Kyiv Pecherska Lavra, Ukraine’s largest monastery, and entered into the famous burial caves. A group photo was taken at the famous Golden Gates of Kyiv and the ensemble spent time at the Orange Revolution Independence Square, St. Andrews Church, Rastrelli’s masterpiece, and St. Sophia’s 11th century church, a masterpiece of world architecture and arts and a UNESCO site. The group concluded their tour with a visit to the Memorial of Holodomor Victims in Ukraine National Museum, where Prime Minister Stephen Harper honoured the memories of Ukrainian genocide victims Oct. 25, 2010. Sadok took an interesting overnight train on the old Soviet transportation to Chernivtsi, where they stayed at a new resort outside the city. A lovely Bukovynian banquet was provided which included local traditional dishes and entertainment by the Apelsyny Dance Ensemble and local singers. This 12th century city of Chernivtsi is the centre of the region of Bukovyna and is known for its baroque architecture. The ensemble was given a private tour of the residence of the Bukovynian and Dalmatian Metropolitans, which was declared a National Park in 1945.

Members of the sadok Ukrainian dance ensemble visit the giant pysanka (easter egg) in the town of Kolomaya in Western Ukraine. The property was transferred to Yuriy Fedkovich Chernivtsi National University under the Ministry of Education of Ukraine in 1955, where they have an exchange program with the University of Saskatoon. This site is a UNESCO world heritage site. Sadok then traveled to the old town of Kamianets Podilsky, another UNESCO historic site, with its historic castles of Kamianets Podilsky and Khotyn. Sadok paid a visit to the town of Kolomaya in Western Ukraine’s Ivano-Frankivsk region, where the modern wonder of Ukraine is located, the world’s largest pysanka (Easter egg). (The second largest is in Vegreville, Alta.) The museum is the most prominent tourist attraction in the pre-Carpathian town of Kolomaya. Although its full title is the Kolomaya Museum of Folk Art named after father Josafat Kobrynskyi, if you simply ask for the pysanka, everyone in town will understand you and point you in the right direction. Our travels continued to Kosiv, a picturesque little town in Hutsulshchyna — the land

of high Ukrainian Carpathians mountains, torrents and fresh air. The town is more than 500 years old and is a district seat of IvanoFrankivsk region in Ukraine. Kosiv is famous for its outstanding artists who not only create beautiful things, but also keep national traditions in embroidery, ceramics, weaving, wooden carvings, and weaving linen and woolen items. Sadok enjoyed the sheer beauty of the surrounding countryside where the air is crisp, the water is clear and the landscape is breathtaking. There are few small cities in Ukraine more worth visiting than Kosiv. A wonderful day was spent in the village of my forefathers, Ispas, by attending the local Orthodox Church where my grandparents attended as children before immigrating to Canada in 1902. The group was treated to local hospitality with a luncheon at my cousin’s home. They continued their trip relaxing in the resort town of Yaremcha, and then traveled the scenic route along the Carpathian Mountains

and beautiful grapevine fields to Ukraine’s most western city of Uzhorod. On the way to Uzhorod the dancers traveled on horseback to the Skaly Dovbusha – famous caves where Olexa Dovbush (Robin Hood of Ukraine) and his band of outlaws lived and hid from the authorities. The Rocks of Dovbush are a fascinating combination of natural wonders and manmade creations located in Ukraine’s IvanoFrankivsk. Dovbush’s rocks are said to have been formed some 70 million years ago, when they were still hidden by the sea. The formations are made up of oddly shaped stones, massive caves, shadowy gorges, impressive fortifications, yawning pits, winding labyrinths and mysterious pathways carved from the sandstone. Amongst the 50-metre high structures are unique wooden cave buildings, pointing to historical habitation. Archeological discoveries have revealed an observatory dating back to the 10th-to-17th centuries BC. The ensemble continued to Ukraine’s most western city of Uzhorod, which borders Hungary and Slovakia and is built on the banks of the Uzh River. The old Slavic city features the ninth century fortified castle, vineyards on the hill sides and many historical and architectural monuments. The adults enjoyed a memorable evening of local wine tasting. Sadok travelled back to Lviv where they enjoyed staying at a private mansion in the city centre. Upon arrival to Lviv, the ensemble partook in a dance workshop at the Palace of Culture, home to Lviv’s premium dance ensemble, Yunist. Lviv is famous for its beauty, monuments and variety of architectural styles. The central part of Lviv, the old town, full of narrow cobbled stone streets, magnificent churches and lovely homes, is a UNESCO world heritage site. The ensemble toured the city with a private local guide that included Independence Square, the stunning Solomiya Krushelnytska Lviv State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre, Italian Court, Market Square, ancient Armenian quarter, St. George’s Cathedral and University. Following the tour they had lunch at the Lviv Brewery and spent the afternoon at Lviv’s new indoor Waterpark. Sadok next performs at the Ukrainian Wedding Gala in Kelowna Aug. 31. The ensemble’s registration night for the 2013/14 dance season is Sept. 5 at 6 p.m. at the Elks Hall, 3103 30th St. Visit for info. — Andrea Malysh is the artistic director of the Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble.

Live Well

HEALTH TIP brought to you by your Pharmasave Pharmacist IAN JOHNSTONE

Our feet are amazing. They are relatively small for the weight they have to carry but contain an intricate network of bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles to support that weight. Problems can occur with our feet and it is important not to ignore them. Pain, numbness, swelling and other symptoms should be checked to rule out major problems. Pepto-Bismol can be taken as a preventative for traveller’s diarrhea at a dose of (2 tablets 4 x daily for up to 3 weeks). For treatment, the usual dose is 2 tablets every 30 minutes up to 8 doses. It does contain a salicylate and shouldn’t be used in children under 12 and with caution in those taking anticoagulant drugs or who have gastric ulcers. Epilepsy affects 60 million people worldwide and about one third of those who are not able to control their seizures. Research is being done on a new device where an electrode is inserted between the skull and the brain and it records continuous brain activity. The signals are analyzed and a readout on a hand held device can predict when a seizure will occur. It will be a definite plus to come epileptics. Many admissions to hospital are due to problems with medications. Many of these are preventable by simply understanding the medications you are taking and taking them according to your doctor’s instructions. Our pharmacists can help you learn about your medications. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Answering them is all part of our job as your pharmacist.

Gallery serves as ArtWalk venue Morning Star Staff

In its 20th year, ArtWalk has fast become the Okanagan’s largest art show. In conjunction with the festival’s two decade anniversary, the Lake Country Art Gallery is presenting its seventh exhibit this year, It’s About Time. Every year since the Lake Country Art Gallery opened its doors to the public, it has enjoyed the opportunity to play host to one of the art festival’s four main sites.  This year will mark the gallery’s fourth consecutive year as an ArtWalk venue. “Many artists fastidiously prepare work all year for the two-day event,” said gallery manager Petrina McNeill.  “We’re really quite fortunate we can offer the opportunity for these artists to show all month.” The exhibit will feature a juried selection of dozens of Okanagan applicants. Paintings, photographs and sculptures have been dropped off all throughout August for the upcoming exhibit.  “We’re so excited about some of the unexpected submissions,” said McNeill.  “There have been some startling interpretations of the It’s About Time theme.” “We’ve received some really unexpected applicants, especially from the southern stretches of the Okanagan,” said curator Katie Brennan.  “I’m so excited for this show, the broad theme has certainly curried a new demographic.” From giant pocket watches to nostalgic portraits to an impressionist’s landscapes capturing sunlight at different times of day, submissions have been incredibly diverse. It’s About Time opens Sept. 7 with ArtWalk, and will close Sept. 29.  Admission to the gallery is free. The Lake Country Art Gallery is located at 10356A Bottom Wood Lake Rd.  Call (250) 7661299 or visit

Concert determines to tattoo or not to tattoo Musician Timothy Osborne hopes to stamp out leukemia and is willing to go under the needle for it Morning Star Staff

A local musician is making an indelible mark to stamp out leukemia with a concert he is hosting at The Hub Arts Collective Friday. Organized by Vernon musician Timothy Osborne (formerly of the band Martin), the concert is part of a fundraiser to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of B.C., but it comes with a rather painful twist. In the same vein as those who have shaved their heads for cancer, Osborne has donated part of his lower back to get an embarrassing tattoo if he raises enough money for his cause. So far he has raised more than $1,300. “The donations either go towards or against getting the tramp stamp,” explained Osborne, whose reasons for the tattoo idea are more heartfelt. “I lost my best friend, Scott Lipinski, a Vernon native, to his second round of leukemia last summer. I also had a few friends who were nurses in the leukemia/ bone marrow transplant ward at Vancouver General while Scott was admitted there.  I know how badly they need the funding to keep up with the amount of technology and supplies they require.” Friday’s concert marks the last day of the fundraiser and the last  opportunity to

donate. Five dollars from each ticket will be added to the total and the winner of a draw gets to decide whether the proceeds go towards Osborne’s tattoo or against.  Supporters can also enjoy some up-andcoming talent with their donation. With her pink flamingo hair, British accent and affinity for vinyl records, electro-pop artist Kieran Strange is best described as fiercely independent. At age 16, she managed a grocery store in her small fishing village in England, and a year later, she set off for North America on her own to pursue music. Besides performing, she has since founded her own micro label, Dangerous Pastry Records, which has now signed multiple other acts for distribution. “I wanted to make a label home for my friends who were too different for what was currently out there, and also for the artists I felt were like me: hard working, interested in making their own path, and not looking for hand-outs,” said Strange. Strange’s music tends to be a voice for those misaligned. Her fans aptly call themselves “strangers” and many are said to be disenchanted with the mainstream.

World of sound comes to town Morning Star Staff

Whether its through the buzzing of an Australian Aborigine didgeridoo or the distinct poly-rhythms of the aslatua (African shaker), Vancouver Island musician Shane Philip can take a listener around the world with just a few notes. Named best live act at the Vancouver Island Music Awards, Philip is known worldwide for his dynamic didgeridoo-infused music and has been touring with his vast Shane Philip collection of instruments. His rhythmic and intoxicating sounds are powerful enough to fill a room with dancing fans and soulful enough to quiet a packed house. Those songs have captured audiences for years in Canada, particularly along the West Coast, but for the past five years, he’s captured listeners around the globe. A regular performer around these parts, Philip is about to return to the Okanagan and is playing at Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Thursday and also takes the Big Blue Stage at Gatzke’s Orchard in Oyama, on Labour Day Sept. 1.

“It’s always a treat to have Shane perform at the orchard,” said Alan Gatzke. “Last year was such a great vibe with Shane that we just had to bring him back this summer.” Philip is a one-man force on stage. His feet wildly work his drum kit while he plays guitar, the aslatua, the djembe and, of course, his didgeridoos. His latest CD, Life Love Music is rich with vocals and features much more of that mesmerizing sound that Philip is so well known for. Philip has had a busy springsummer tour including dates in the Yukon, Juan de Fuca Festival (Port Angeles, WA), Starbelly Jam Music Festival, Unity Festival, Nelson Street Fest (Kootenays), Alpine Blosson Fest (Sun Peaks), 24 Hours of Adrenaline (Canmore), numerous kayak festivals in B.C. and Alberta, and a special benefit show in Canmore for Alberta flood victim relief. Philip takes the stage at Lorenzo’s Thursday at 8 p.m. The café is located at 901 Mabel Lake Rd. east of Enderby, For details call: (250) 838-6700. His performance at Gatzke Orchard starts at 6 p.m. Sept. 1. Tickets are $15 available at Gatzke Orchard, located on Highway 97 between Vernon and Winfield. Visit for more information.

Matyas takes back-to-school tour Graeme Corbett Business Editor

Every September, Staples Canada president Steve Matyas heads to one of the company’s 300-plus nationwide stores to take a shift on the frontline. This time around, he will be heading up to Fort McMurray. And it’s not just some random day, it’s Super Tuesday, the first day of the school year. It’s sort of like Boxing Day for school supplies, mainly because of the chaos of last-minute shopping. “I’m always amazed at when people come in and it’s like a mob scene because everybody has waited until the last minute,” said Matyas, who co-founded Staples’ predecessor, Business Depot, in 1991. “In some cases, they don’t have the school lists so they can’t do it earlier. But as hard as we try to make the transaction smooth, it’s hard to do when you have 600 people mobbing your store.” Super Tuesday is the culmination of a four- to five-week lead-up to the start of school. This is when Staples’ 15,000 employees earns their gold stars for performance. “It takes a tremendous amount of time and effort for the stores to get ready,” said Matyas, who operates out of Staples headquarters in Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto. The company holds regional offices in Vancouver, Edmonton and Montreal. “Typically, our back-to-school season represents about 16 per cent of our annual volume, compressed in a very short period of time.” Matyas has spent the past few weeks touring a number of Staples outlets in Western Canada, including the one on 32nd Street in Vernon on Aug. 14. “Part of the reason (for my visit) is to walk around and get an idea of how we can do things better next year. And part of it is to thank people for the tremendous effort they put in to get the stores ready.” As is the case every year, Matyas notices certain products that prove trendy with students. This year, it is “neon everything.” From Sharpie felt markers to binders and totes, bright will be big this fall, he said. Another trend appears to be nostalgia items, such as a stylus pen in the shape of a yellow, HB pencil, and other items that draw inspiration from school supplies of old. And while tablet computers in the classroom are more of an inevitability rather than a fad, Matyas said they are really taking off. With Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy, HP Android and Google Nexus all producing quality models at competitive prices, he expects they will be used increasingly as a learning tool. “Clearly more and more teachers are allowing tablets in

Staples Canada president Steve matyas is making the rounds, including a recent visit to the Vernon outlet, as the company ramps up its back-to-school operations. the classrooms,” he said. “There’s a place for them in terms of being a great educational product. “In some parts of the country, as far down as Grade 6 we’re seeing tablets in the classroom.” Before Matyas got involved with Staples/Business Depot, he was actually headed for a career as a medical geneticist. It wasn’t until he realized there was more money in “pushing pencils on street corners” that he made the switch. “I can tell you what colour your kid’s eyes are going to be,” he chuckled. And while the Staples venture has been a profitable one personally, Matyas and the company’s other two co-founders have also used their corporate muscle to support charity. Staples is the largest sponsor of Canadian Special Olympics, representing 15 per cent of the organization’s total revenues. It is a relationship going on 18 years. “When we started the business, all three partners felt that it’s not just about making money,” said Matyas. “It’s about making meaning as well.” Staples is also holding its eighth annual Students School

Supply Drive, which assists families in providing the basic supplies students need to thrive in the classroom. According to a survey of teachers conducted by Vision Critical for Staples Canada, 35 per cent of students will turn up to the new school year without the necessary back-toschool supplies. “I was shocked to hear almost a third of all Canadian children go back to school without the necessary school supplies,” said Matyas. “That’s a staggering number so we decided to do something about it. “We’re really pleased with how that resonates with customers. Last year, we raised over $1 million, and this year we’re going to exceed that by a wide margin.” The Vernon Staples was one of the top stores in the country for last year’s drive, raising nearly $14,000. Matyas estimates that will assist as many as 650 families in the region. This year’s drive runs until Monday, Sept. 9, and the Vernon store has set a target of $20,000, with a company-wide goal of $1.5 million. Donations are accepted at all Staples locations in Canada.

Vernon stores are part of an overall sale of 68 properties to Crombie Real Estate Investment Trust. “There will be a grocery store there,” said Walker. “This is just a real estate transaction.” Sobeys will lease the property from Crombie, but the companies are currently awaiting approval from the competition bureau before any decisions are made. “After that we’ll start to look at the branding,” said Walker, expecting the acquisition process to wrap up later this year.

There are 29 properties in B.C., 27 in Alberta, three in Saskatchewan and nine in Manitoba involved in the transaction. “The geographic location of these assets is highly complementary to our existing core portfolio, providing greater exposure to Western Canadian markets and solidifying Crombie’s position as a truly national retail landlord,” said Donald Clow, president of Nova Scotia-based Crombie REIT.

With the sale of Safeway stores to Sobeys, it’s still unknown which label will adorn the grocery stores, including Vernon’s two. “The two stores are part of the transaction,” confirms Andrew Walker, Sobeys’ vice-president of communications and corporate affairs.

Term life insurance


urchasing life insurance could be one of the most important steps you can take in protecting your family’s future. Let’s specifically address term insurance, what it is, determining the amount of death benefit, and comparing term insurance to group life and mortgage insurance. What is term life insurance? Term life insurance is Brent Barker generally the most reason-

tion. The cost of the insurance (the premium) you pay is based on your age, health, smoking status and the amount of coverage you require. Premiums are level for the term of the contract (typically 10 or 20 years), and at each renewal period premiums will increase to a new amount and remain level until the next renewal date. How much term insurance should I consider? An initial consideration could be repayment of the mortgage in the event of a death of either spouse. Additionally individuals should consider how much of their spouse’s income is required to sustain the family’s current standard of living and the cost for children to complete their education. A rule of thumb is seven-to-10 times an individual’s earnings). Each family has its own specific insurance needs and these should be evaluated on a caseby-case basis. What type of term insurance policy should we consider, and what length? There are two options for consideration. Each spouse can have an individual policy for a specific death benefit. In the event of either spouse’s death, the beneficiary (or beneficiaries) receive the insurance proceeds and the surviving spouse has their own insurance policy still in force. Or they can buy a joint policy which would pay the beneficiary on the first death of either spouse. What about my group life insurance available through my employer? Group insurance policies are based on a factor

ably priced insurance and can be tailored to meet a family’s budget. On your death, a payment is made to the person or persons you designate (the beneficiary) and they decide how to use the money. Term insurance is usually purchased to meet a specific need, for example to pay off the mortgage, income protection for a young family, or pay off personal or business loans or to provide money for your children’s educa-

of your annual earnings, normally one-to-three times annual earnings. Group policies generally will not be sufficient enough to pay off the mortgage, or provide an amount to sustain your current standard of living. Also remember that a group plan only applies while you are an employee of that company. You should consider what happens to your life insurance benefit if you’re temporarily laid-off or your employment is severed and the coverage provided by a new employer? In addition, group life insurance rates usually change annually and are not based on the individual’s personal health or age. What about mortgage insurance? A good temporary measure is to insure your mortgage, however, have you considered that the beneficiary of the insurance is the financial institution who holds your mortgage? In addition, while the premiums may be level, the actual amount of coverage is declining based on mortgage payments that reduce the principal of the mortgage. Mortgage insurance premiums are typically higher than comparable term life insurance. In terms of covering a specific need for a specific time frame, consider term life insurance, as a complement to, or for replacement of group life insurance and mortgage insurance.

Rotary at the IPE

Sunday, August 25, 2013 - The Morning Star B11


With the Interior Provincial Exhibition just days away, members of the Armstrong Rotary Club are gearing up for its biggest community commitment for the year. Rotary looks after the parking for the IPE in a large field just across from the exhibition grounds. John Irving, a long time Rotarian, is in charge of set up and operation of the parking area and he, along with a small army of helpers, started work Sunday on the final layout of the grounds. More than 100 motorhomes, campers and an estimated 8,000 private vehicles will come into the parking area during the five-day exhibition. A few even arrive two days before the opening of the IPE. “It’s a lot of work, thankfully helped by so many volunteers, Rotarians and non-Rotarians,” Irving said. “Many of these volunteers come back year after year to help out.” The money raised goes toward projects Rotary undertakes each year. The general manager of the IPE, Bryan Burns, has nothing but praise for the Armstrong Rotary effort. He said, “The IPE and Rotary have welded a fantastic partnership with the parking arrangement. I’ve attended many major events in BC and Alberta, and I consider what Rotary does with our parking here is the best I’ve ever seen anywhere.” Burns said the entrance to the parking off Wood Ave. last year was shifted west from the IPE office, allowing more vehicles to drive off the roadway into the parking area. “The RCMP told me it worked out really well, clearing Wood Ave. smoothly and quickly,” he said. “This will be done again this year.” August has turned out to be a busy time on another Rotary front. Zeynep Caner arrived from Turkey to begin

her year in Armstrong as a Rotary International Exchange Student. She comes from a large city and admitted she was a bit apprehensive about coming to a small community like Armstrong. “But everybody is so friendly here,” she said. “I feel so welcome.” Zeynep will be attending Pleasant Valley Secondary School in Armstrong starting in September. Armstrong’s outbound student, Hailey Beck, will be leaving this month for a year in Brazil. “I’ve always wanted to be a Rotary exchange student,” she said. “And now when it’s about to happen, I’m so excited, living in a new country, going to school and meeting so many new friends.” Earlier this summer, Armstrong Rotary hosted a threeday weekend (Armstrong 100th Homecoming), celebrating the city’s anniversary. More than 500 former residents returned to Armstrong to celebrate the event which included area bus tours, visits to their former elementary school (built in 1921), breakfasts, picnics, socials and a huge banquet held in the Hassen Arena. Shirley Fowler, this year’s Armstrong Rotary Club president, was instrumental in co-ordinating the series of events. “I believe it really went well and I was proud to be part of Armstrong Rotary that kept all the events organized and on an even keel,” she said. “We were a little tired when it was all over but everybody had a wonderful time, renewing old friendships and spending hours socializing. It made all Rotarians proud to have played a part in this anniversary for the City of Armstrong.”

Bridge by Phillip Alder DEFENDERS NEED ENTRY CARDS ALSO Mary Lou Retton, who won one gold, two silver and two bronze medals in the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, said about her training regimen: “I gave up my childhood. I missed proms and games and high-school events, and people said it was awful. I say it was a good trade.” Her hard work gained her entry -- the fifth letter of my “trade” acronym -- into the United States Olympic team. Bridge players should always keep their eyes on entries. It is easier for declarer, who can see all of his assets. But for the defenders, it is no use having winners ready to be cashed if that player does not have an entry card to gain the

lead. In this deal, how should East hope to defeat three no-trump after West leads a fourth-highest spade four? When the dummy comes down, East should count up the points. South showed 1517, dummy has 12, and East holds 10. That leaves only 1-3 for West. If West has king-fifth of spades, there is no danger. But if West has only the spade jack, he cannot have an entry card in another suit. East must reject the usual defense of winning with the spade ace (third hand high) and returning the queen. South would duck, take the third spade, and run the club queen to collect an overtrick. Instead, East must smoothly play his spade queen at trick one.

Yes, if South ducks, he makes his contract. But why would he? That would be suicidal if West has the spade ace-jack and club king. Instead, South will win the first trick and take the club finesse. But East wins with his king, cashes the spade ace, and leads his last spade for down one.

Mary was born in Melville, Sask., married Henry in Vancouver, BC in 1943 and was a long time Langley resident where she was a Charter Member of Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church. She moved to Armstrong, BC last year to reside with her daughter. She was an extremely loving mother, was dedicated to her family and enjoyed her many friends. She was a gifted cook, a restaurant owner and chef and enjoyed life to the fullest. She became ill soon after visiting with all of her siblings and family members in Saskatchewan. When she learned that she had a mere few days to live until her life would come to an end, her keen instincts shone through as she used these precious hours sharing her love and special thoughts with her family, including how she was prepared to “check out heaven”. Mary is survived by: daughter Delores Fraser of Armstrong, BC; son Ron (Teresa) Stachowski of Victoria, BC; grandchildren: Shelley (Len), Doug, Darcy (Linda), Tony (Pam), and Cory (Mia); great grandchildren: Rochelle (Bob), Breanne, Channai, Jacob, Emma, Jordan, Shawn, Darren (Kristin), and Kailey; great-great grandchildren: Isabella and Brandon; siblings: Elsie (Frank) Zulyniak, Violet Kerestesh, Ed (Ruth) Lutz, Gordon (Joyce) Lutz, Ruth Lypka, Gerry (Johanna) Lutz, Janice (Gordon) McMaster; very long time special friend, Kris Bakerink; many nieces, nephews and countless friends. Mary was predeceased by her parents, Fred and Elizabeth Lutz, husband Henry, son-in-law Bob Fraser, brothers-in-law Willie Kerestesh, Alex Lypka and sister-in-law Sandra Lutz. A very special “thank you” to Drs.Vincent and Naude, and to the nurses who provided exceptional care and compassion to Mary and family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Vernon Jubilee Hospital, 2101- 32nd Street, Vernon, BC, V1T 5L2, or to a charity of your choice. A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, September 23rd, 2013 at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, 20097 – 72nd Avenue, Langley, BC. Arrangements have been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. Condolences may be offered at

William “Bill” George

The family of William George (Bill) May regrets to announce his sudden passing on August 18th, 2013. He was predeceased by the love of his life, Bonnie May, in 2007. Bill was born in Stratford, Ontario on April 7th, 1928, the youngest of four siblings. He often talked with fondness of the days he spent hunting and fishing with his father in the rural fields around Stratford. He followed his father into an apprenticeship as a draftsman at the CNR shop in Stratford. Bill was an ambitious man who always worked hard to improve his position and to provide well for his family. In 1969 he moved his family to Vernon to head the construction and operation of the Consumers Glass Plant in Lavington. He is still fondly remembered by former employees as a fair and honest man. Bill ended his career as Director of Operations of Consumers International. Throughout his life, Bill loved fishing, golfing, playing darts with his sons, and travelling with Bonnie. He passed on his great sense of humour to all his sons. His greatest love was his wife, Bonnie, to whom he was devoted to the end. Bill is survived by his sons: Phil May of Vernon, Paul (Kathryn) May of Vernon, and Scott (Lenora) May of Kelowna; grandchildren: Jillian May and Jeff May. The family will have a private gathering to remember Bill. Arrangements have been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. Condolences may be offered at

Hit and Run At 9:30 pm on Thursday, August 15th a 79 year old pedestrian narrowly escaped being run over by a bright silver smaller SUV speeding in a south-bound direction in the 3800 block of 36th Street. The pedestrian dove to the curb to avoid being directly hit, but was still clipped by the SUV. He sustained multiple injuries, and remains in intensive care in critical condition. The SUV screeched its tires after hitting the victim, but did not stop to provide assistance before driving away. A bystander witnessing the event was able to provide the details of the accident, but was not able to write down the license plate number. Any information regarding this accident would be very helpful. Please forward anything you know to the RCMP at 545-7171, referencing file number 13-17373. You can also contact 250-545-1371.
